Escape from Illinois: Demographics & Deficits

Escape from Illinois: Demographics & Deficits

An important story from Illinois is now making national headlines. The state is broke and can’t service its debt or fully fund a variety of other basic services. There’s a budget impasse between the Republican Governor and Democrat legislators that prompted Moody’s and S&P to downgrade them to essentially junk bond status. It’s important to keep in mind this infighting is not to restore fiscal sobriety. It’s to pass a budget that enables the state to continue servicing its debt so that it can borrow more money. No long term solution that achieves sustainability can arise from the current miasma. Of course, they’ll eventually reach a deal, politicians always do. However, it will only guarantee even worse problems down the road. This downgrade is unprecedented for a US state, and a harbinger of things to come all across this once great land of ours. At least a 3rd of all states are facing similar crisis to Illinois at some point in the near future.

Notes on the “White Ally”

One of the stranger developments in American identity politics is the manufactured affiliation known as the “white ally.” But despite the moniker of “ally,” the white ally is not an independent political actor entering into alliance with another actor to achieve his or her interests through cooperation. The job of the white ally is simply to follow the orders of the dominant “partner” in this alliance, to sit down and shut up.

The Brawl in the Hall

Late last month, something entirely expected happened: Hispanic Democrats, on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives, revealed their contempt for the law and for the country in which they live through acts of bullying and violence. They also tried to shout down the one person willing to enforce the law, Republican Representative Matthew Rinaldi.

Really, who here thought this could have happened any other way?

The Soul of Jack London, Part 2

Race was of utmost importance to London. His unshakable views on the subject were expressed ardently even in some of his works of socialist propaganda. A good sampling of London’s racial perspective at the turn of the century may be found in his letters to Cloudesley Johns. Johns, a young post-office employee from southern California, wrote London a fan letter in 1899, praising one of the latter’s magazine articles. The result was a strong friendship that lasted until London’s death. The correspondence between Johns and London frequently dealt heavily with the subject of race. In one letter to Johns, dated December 12, 1899, London wrote:

The Soul of Jack London, Part 1

The life of Jack London, the extraordinarily popular turn-of-the-century American author, was every bit as fascinating as those of the fictional characters depicted in his stories. He was a man of action as well as of thought.

But lack London was much more than an author and adventurer. Born into poverty, he was molded into an ardent socialist at an early age. Possessing an instinctive craving for truth, he cast off the shackles of the religion in which he was raised and turned instead to the teachings of Friedrich Nietzsche and the logic of science. Endowed with both common sense and intelligence, he recognized the potential of eugenics and fervently supported its practice. With a deep reverence for his North European ancestry, he expressed an unquenchable faith in the superiority and the destiny of his race, and he produced some of the most extreme and most beautiful racial statements ever written.

The Real Victims in Manchester

What does it mean to be a Mancunian? Perhaps it’s as simple as being a resident or former resident of Manchester. Or perhaps it’s characterized by a particular type of identity, one that is often embodied in the numerous musicians who have come from there in recent decades. Take Guy Garvey, singer of Elbow:

The people in Manchester who will be most afraid because of what he [Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber] did last night will be real Muslims, members of the real faith who don’t believe in violence and don’t believe in killing as a means to an end. Manchester’s multicultural history is part of why it’s such a successful city.

MAOA, Race, and Crime

One gene which plays a role in Black’s high crime rate is the monoamine oxidase -a gene (MAO-A). This gene produces an enzyme by the same name. The enzyme MAO-A breaks down a class of neurotransmitter called mono-amines in the brain. These neurotransmitters include ones which are well known to effect behavior such as dopamine and serotonin. Some versions of the MAO-A gene lead to lower levels of MAO-A the enzyme and, therefore, more mono-amine activity in the brain.

HOW TO DRAW A SONNENRAD

And in his hand
He took the golden Compasses, prepar’d
In Gods Eternal store, to circumscribe
This Universe, and all created things:
One foot he center’d, and the other turn’d
Round through the vast profunditie obscure,
And said, thus farr extend, thus farr thy bounds,
This be thy just Circumference, O World.
Thus God the Heav’n created, thus the Earth.

Dear Fellow White People…

I recently came across somebody on Twitter called ”HelloFellowWhites” who, I think, might just be a psychologist of some sort. You see, he’s put together a series of case studies, of sorts, into what we might charitably call an ‘Identity Crisis’ among our Jewish friends.

It’s almost as if they feel guilty for being ‘white’ one minute, and then suddenly take on a whole new identity just like magic!.

I selected ten of his case studies to see if we might be able to shed some light on this bizarre phenomenon….

IQs of East Asians

One of the major arguments against heredetarianism is the claim that East Asians’ higher IQs than Europeans is merely a result of effort, and are in fact an example of effort raising the IQ of an entire group by about 4 points relative to 100, which is presumably what they would score if they were as “lazy” as Europeans.

Does Natural Law Exist?

A widow about to be buried alive in her husband’s grave. Do we all share the same sense of right and wrong?

What, ultimately, is the basis for morality? Many people argue that some things are self-evidently wrong, like torture and murder. No need to invoke the Ten Commandments or any religious tradition. Some things are just wrong. Period.

This is a respectable idea with a long lineage. It’s the argument of Natural Law. All people are born with a natural sense of right and wrong, and it is only later, through vice or degeneration, that some can no longer correctly tell the two apart.

Life’s A Beach: A Liberal Paradise Lost

Danny Boyle’s 2000 film ‘The Beach’ makes for interesting viewing from a Nationalist perspective because whether he intended his movie to be so or not, it’s the story of the failure of liberal minded Europeans to face reality while attempting to create utopia. It’s a brilliant meditation on liberal denial.

God-Emperor from a Machine: The Alt Right, Aesthetics, & Memetics

Meme war is nothing new or original in human history, but the battlefields we wage it on have completely transformed. Peace is merely the absence of war, and in a democracy, all are at war in an implied sense. We form factions to decide who will rule and then by a simple majority declare a winner. How those factions are formed in our times depends largely on media consumption and the creation of political identities. Media becomes a conduit for political memes, what people believe the government should or should not do, how society should be ordered or disordered, etc. There’s a reason people who read Breitbart and watch Fox News voted for Trump, while people who read Huffington Post and watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver voted for Clinton. Memes are in a sense the environmental form of genes; something you receive from around you that has mutated and evolved to reach you.

France Not So Much

Hillary Clinton put it best when she tweeted “Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world. Defeat to those interfering w/democracy. (But the media says I can’t talk about that).”

France voted for corrupt neo-liberal government aimed at unifying the world into a rootless trade bloc that tolerates the internal displacement of its own people by economic migrants, and one which skillfully uses the media to portray itself as the underdog fighting the massively satanic reactionary forces of hate, racism, and xenophobia. All people have a right to live in France on unemployment and conduct terrorist attacks on its soil against the natives. People who say otherwise are Hitler. The French could not muster more than 36% support at the most recent count for a candidate that was at least nominally opposed to mass immigration. The Americans at least landed almost 50% and won due to a quirk of the electoral system, even though their candidate ended up backpedaling on nativism.

Solid Gold Study of the 1992 Rodney King Riot

Brenda Stevenson
The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins: Justice, Gender, and the Origins of the LA Riots
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2013

The Rodney King Riot is now more than two decades past. With such distance, it is possible to examine the riot and see what the long-term effects really were. The conflict started on the afternoon of April 29, 1992, after the four white Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers who had been filmed beating the riot’s eponymous black motorist were acquitted by a Simi Valley jury. However, the Rodney King Riot was really the culmination of black-Korean racial and social tensions that shifted into high gear when a Korean woman, Soon Ja Du, shot a teenaged black girl, Latasha Harlins, in the back of the head over a petty assault and on suspicion of shoplifting. Soon Ja Du was given a minimal sentence with no jail time by Judge Joyce Karlin after Du was found guilty in a racially-charged trial. University of California, Los Angeles historian Prof. Brenda E. Stevenson explores the intersecting lives of the Korean shopkeeper, Soon Ja Du, the deceased Latasha Harlins, and the Jewish judge, Joyce Karlin, in this excellent book.

Girl against Bull

Fearless Girl, a four-foot statue commissioned by State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), now stands facing Charging Bull in Lower Manhattan’s Bowling Green park, near Wall Street. Her appearance in the financial district in early March was timed to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The longstanding tradition that a surging market is symbolized by a powerful bull – rather than, say, by a cow in calf – presents an irritating problem to feminists, a provocation that requires a feminist response. SSGA’s feminist response is a pony-tailed girl standing up to the bull.

The statue is both a feminist statement and an advertisement for SSGA’s index fund, which includes and rewards firms that put women in senior leadership positions, especially on corporate boards. Through its fund, the company boasts, “SSGA takes action to celebrate the power of women in leadership and to urge greater gender diversity on corporate boards.” There is even a plaque advertising the fund among the cobblestones at Fearless Girl’s feet.

How Israel Swindled Its Way to an Atomic Bomb

Roger J. Mattson
Stealing the Atom Bomb: How Denial and Deception Armed Israel
CreateSpace, 2016

There’s a great deal of talk about “weapons of mass destruction” proliferating across the Middle East. The mainstream media has sounded the alarm about Iran’s nuclear weapons program since the 1980s (and yet no Iranian bomb has appeared). The supposed purpose of the Iraq War was to eliminate the nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons programs that Iraq was falsely alleged to have had. To keep their rivals from developing a bomb, Israel attacked nuclear facilities in Iraq in 1981 and in Syria in 2007. To paraphrase Jean-Paul Sartre, Israel is sick with fear, they are afraid of the shadow of their own stolen bomb. How they stole the atomic bomb is detailed in Roger J. Mattson’s 2016 book, Stealing the Atom Bomb: How Denial and Deception Armed Israel.
