Bravo, John. Your finest piece yet. The historical parallels are brilliant, as is the use of the Sanpaku eyes.

This is the first time in history that a civilization has been taken down with only words, not weapons. Yuri warned of this demoralization 40 years ago. Now we have reached at an inflection point where the ism and phobia siege weapon words are becoming meaningless, so the pushback can gain steam.

If the west falls, the whole world will enter a new dark age. Let our words continue to light fires of courage and clarity.

That failure of their weaponized lexicon is our best hope. If the spell breaks, their control dies, and we get our civilization back.

The current pushback, even elementary school levels (Boston elementary school response against lgbtqbull@$#%), purports that the spell might be breaking. However, there are other issues, spiritual and cosmic, that may make the whole thing mute. God, in Christ, may well be coming back, not to rescue us, but bring the final judgement on everything. See www.prophecyhouse.com. Cosmologically, the galactic cycle is reaching its ~12,000 year cycle where most of what we know is swept clean (suspicious0bservers.org). A sort of reboot where almost nothing of what we now have remains.

It is not that history is ending but rather it is reaching its intended target. Either way, the next 10 years will prove it out one way or the other. Either Jesus comes back and everything changes or the galactic cycle asserts itself and all the fulminations of the PTB are brought to naught. I prefer the first, but the second appears unavoidable.

"a civilization has been taken down with only words, not weapons"

That is completely untrue.

The only reason we have global mass migration is because the international globalist predator class has engineered the same violent aggressive pattern that they always prefer.

I am over 70 years of age and the white men have been the modern equivalent of the Roman Army all my life.

It has rampaged around the whole world blowing stuff up and murdering endlessly, rendering land unliveable, destroying sacred sites, stealing resources and littering filthy depleted uranium like damned confetti.

And you WONDER WHY our porous borders are crowded with desperate people trying to survive?

This excuse of a 'civilisation' has been its own worst enemy, backed by propagandised, disinformed egotistic, but seriously dumb, taxpayers.

The truth is that the world has seen too many BILLION$ of your weapon$.

Words cannot describe how easy it has been to fool you to believe your own hubris.

A Pentagon Brief, written and given in lectures by Thomas P. Barnett, outlined the 21st century foreign policy. He taught the top brass to look at the world as only two zones.

He named them the GAP and the CORE.

Succinctly, if you live in the GAP you have two choices: Migrate or Die.

If you live in the CORE you have no choice. Accept immigration, poverty and debt.

Needless to say Europe and North America are in the CORE.

GAP countries are being destroyed to fulfil this evil depopulation agenda and now we are experiencing the strain of accommodating the remnants in these CORE countries.

We are not being invaded.

We drove the people out of their homes - where the fuck did you think they were going to go?

You really should read history.

What the spanish, portugese, british and french did is nothing when compared to what arabs, various negro peoples, and the multitude of ethnicites in Asia has always done - to themselves, to each other and to europeans whenever they could.

History did not start with the "discovery" of the Americas, so to speak. Look up when the Turk threatened to conquer Vienna the last time, for just one example.

If anything, Africa and Asia owes the white peoples hundreds of billons of dollars worth of reparations for all the infrastructure and civics we imparted and built in their lands.

Actually, he's completely correct. Particularly as regards Africa, which has been a financial black hole for generations with nothing to show for it. To say nothing of the trillions of dollars squandered on dem programs back home. We'd be snowboarding on Olympus Mons by now if it hadn't been for the resources we wasted on Africans.

Are you saying that colonising, robbing of everything valuable and experimenting by mad scientists with poison needles has benefitted any Africans? Surely not.

One other thing.... what makes you think you were ever told the truth about the aid 'given' to Africa? For the most part, the money never left the donor countries. It was invested in corporate interference and infrastructure to facilitate robbery. Then, to add insult to injury the African nations were charged interest because the 'aid' was only ever a LOAN.

Counterpoint: Japan.

Japan went from a backwards medieval hermit kingdom to a globe-striding imperial superpower in two generations, with essentially no foreign aid. They taught themselves European science and technology, and built themselves up more or less from scratch.

Then their entire country was burned to the ground, and nuked twice. After which they once again built themselves up to become a great power.

Japan has basically no natural resources, btw.

Africa has had trillions in foreign aid, and remains Africa. Was a lot of it grift? Lost to corruption (but wait, why are they so corrupt)? Sure it was. Doesn't matter, frankly. Regardless, the money was wasted. Vast sums have been poured into Africa to exactly no effect, aside from producing a large surplus of Africans. Africans did nothing with their land before the Europeans arrived, or the Arabs for that matter. They're doing nothing with it now that the Chinese are getting in on the game. At a certain point one has to ask whether the common element here might play a more important role in the perennial condition of the continent than whichever imperial power happens to be taking advantage.

You're quite correct. I would add an additional point: those cultures created the White domination we've witnessed the last few centuries. As Jim Morrison said, "I've been down so God damn long, that it looks like up to me." The Arabic and Asiatic civilizations, including the Khazarian culture of Asiatic/Arab/Turk mongrels, long subdued and terrorized white populations. The Khazarians raped Northern European women to produce a wholly white version which become dispersed throughout Europe and became known as Ashkenazi Jew. The subjugated always learn how to overthrow. The current Globalist hopes to thwart that tendency.

Excellent points. I'm not sure about the circumstances of the actual migrants, but it certainly stands to reason that turning other people's countries into shooting zones for our elite predators' power games, or impoverishing them with sanctions, would cause their broken populations to come to our CORE countries if only for their own safety.

We need to recognize that the violent destruction of other people's communities by our neocons and the destruction of our own by woke libs are two sides of the same coin. Instead of leaving ourselves always on the defensive for want of humanitarian inclusiveness, we should take a strong moral stand against the aggressions of our own empire-builders who pretend to be protecting us by crushing others, and ultimately ruin us as well. Then we can talk better with the wokies who bully us with moralizing, yet take no stand against the arrogant imperialism that causes both sides' problems.

I somewhat agree with the sentiment here, that we ultimately brought this on ourselves and that western civilization is now part of the problem. But let's not remove agency from those outside of western civilization and make them out to be pure victims. What they do when they come to our countries is absolutely unforgivable, we do we(the average people of western countries) have to be murdered and raped by these people because of what our occupied governments did to them? Like I said, western civilization is most definitely part of the problem, but it's a two way street.

You gentlemen are correct. I agree with all points and am familiar with Barnett whose book "The Pentagon's New Map: War and Peace in the Twenty-First Century Paperback" is available on Amazon. The U.S. military has long been subsumed as the Globalist's enforcement arm. Which is why they sit in Syria protecting Conoco's extraction from Syria's largest oil reserve. Look into how the oil is exported; refined; sold; bought; and profits made. You'll find nothing on web. All dead ends down the rabbit hole.

The Globalist manufactured the wars, deprivation, and pollution they rail against; they used the U.S. military as thugs to enforce their debt-slavery IMF loans shoved down the throats of unsuspecting nations; they stir constant turmoil throughout the world by training "natives" to fight other natives in their very own nations; they disintegrate the warrior's mind by bland, insufferable cruelty levied against the unassuming; and they are now, through their NGOs like Soros' Open Foundation who provide information and logistics to immigrant populations, torpedoing the "overly rich" democratic societies. They must scourge them as the Ghost Warriors were so that they never arise and mount a substantial rebellion.

Why should they possibly treat more prosperous or demonstrably more accomplished cultures any differently? Their goal is simply our subservience and to extract our body, mind, and spirit for their use as they extract natural resources throughout the world for the fuel to dominate and control.

> What about building up their own countries?

Financed, I presume, with Western money that is loaned out in debt-trap arrangements? Or perhaps built up using the wealth they create themselves - except oops, the Europeans are shipping all the wealth abroad. Not to mention that nothing in this world prevents Westerners from just coming up to you and demanding they be sold mines and factories at such-and-such a price or else those poor people over there who you've been opressing for so long might just stage an uprising which we will, obviously under a UN mandate, be required to help!

You know, I think you two helped me realize an actually plausible reason for mass immigration into the West.

See, what if the West's elites figured out that they're going to lose the Globe and so settled on milking just the West? BUT then they realized the people in the West are "too used to high living standards" (so they'll demand a lot), but also they "demonstrated a desire and ability to build a civilization", which would translate to being prone to uprisings and generally not good serfs. Ignoring for a moment serfdom was indigenously invented in Europe.

However, if we're to follow the logic you espose and they presumably also hold, the "brown people" never "showed an urge to build a civilization", furthermore - and I'm not claiming or assuming you share the following trait with them, if we assume the Western elites are proper racists, like Russian leaders said they are, they'll probably also belive this lack of urge is genetic. Soo... if you want a literal slave race, but don't have any handy what you do is simply import them. Right? :) Since they "don't have an urge to build a civilization" they'll be easy to control, right? Just give them women occationally and beat them occationally and they'll be fine, like some Egyptian guy wrote 1500 years ago (or whenever).

I'm not advocating any of this is true in fact, but *what if* Western elites THOUGHT it was true?

Anyway, I won't bother you anymore, but I think this thought is worthy of being shared. It's the first time an actually coherent explanation for deliberate mass immigration has been present in my head. Well, OK not the first first time (it passed through once or twice during Merkel's time just without the assumption of racism), but the first time it's likely to stick around.

"This is about a globalist elite sinking nations that threaten them." Precisely, although I would hesitate to refer to them as 'elite'.

I can ignore the historical and current affairs misunderstandings you labour under because you eventually reached the same conclusion as me - simply via a different route.

There is one other piece of evidence that the GAP & CORE Pentagon Brief is accurate. In 2018 the United Nations got everyone to sign up to the Migration Compact which makes rejecting immigrants internationally illegal because migration is a human right.

So few people are aware of this:

This civilization was taken down by organized ethnic mafias who seized control of the media, the money, and the spook state.

The rest is downstream from that reality.

Also, I think Bezmenov was a Birch Society psy-op. I mean his main gripe with the USSR was that his superiors looked down on him going native with an Indian woman lover while stationed in India. Bezmenov's authenticity was not confirmed by previous spooks who switched over either from what I gather. And they were very good sources of info prior to that.

Beautiful post.

In my opinion all the paths lead toward doom for white western civilization and possibly for humanity itself...unless there is a Nietzschian transvaluation of values away from the egalitarianism that has been embedded in the west since Paul of Tarsus. Only such a transvaluation of values back toward inegalitarianism -- nobility, honor, immediacy of purpose, warrior values -- has any hope of countering the self-destructive values of the west down to the lowest common demoninator. Whether such a transvaluation is possible at such a late stage I don't know -- but I know that's the only solution. To be able to say: reality is unequal and no amount of social tinkering will fix these things, nor are the "more unequal" groups responsible for this -- that is what is needed if humanity is to survive.

I think we all tend to miss the key point: labels evolve to meet the needs of those who use them and tell us a great deal of information about their authors and early adopters. Correcting them is useful only when done for analytic purposes. Policing linguistic usages strikes me as old-maidish. IMHO the terms 'Western' and 'civilization' certainly deserve retirement because they increasingly describe lost realities and are too vague for most purposes. As for 'white', 'European', 'Indo-European'...I just give up. Ultimately we are all forced to use the words in vogue...at best we do so mindfully.

Yes... and no. The term itself is new, designed to chain europeans to the fate of the jews. On the other hand nicene christianity has always been judeo (torah) christian (NT). Rolo argues that this is the ancient chain binding europeans to jews.

Expand full comment

I don't know about the coined term and its purpose. But the idea of a "chain" is quite odd considering the early history of persecution by the Jews and the eventual naming of the sect as "Christian" (beginning at Antioch). Jesus was the one who prophesied the destruction of the temple and mourned over Jerusalem, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes." This is quite an established break from "fate" one would say. We should not be confusing faith and geopolitics of a particular time or place and the questions (and whatever answers) that come from that context. Yes Christians (at least in its earliest understanding) consider themselves to be inheritors of the God of Abraham, Isaac, etc, and Jesus to be Messiah, the Christ. I point to St Paul as great example of these teachings.

One thing that might be of interest here is that later rabbinical Judaism sought to separate more distinctly from Christianity as a reaction to it. The very strict monotheism is different from Second Temple Judaism which entertained questions of "persons" in God

Nice to see some of the topics that we discussed before making it into your essay. You wrote it out better than I could have.

However, when I bring these examples up, I see them as success stories worth emulating.

My point is that 1) these people actually rose up, which cannot be said for modern Whites and the reason that they rose up is 2) because of a religious movement that necessarily was imbued with mystical practice or led by shamans of a kind.

All peasant/slave revolts are religious in nature is my point and so if there is to be any rebellion at all, it needs to use the technology of inspiring religious feeling in people to get them to rise up.

You did not list them, but there are also more successful examples of the same phenomenon.

Tecumsah had more luck and used his shaman pedigree to unite the Indian tribes into a rare confederacy that made a political miscalculation in relying so heavily on Canadian British.

The Servile wars were also led by psychopomps.

And the Protestant rebellions were actually successful in the end, using mystical the mass-induction techniques of dancing, simulated drowning, cold exposure and so on. There are other semi-successful examples that come to mind as well like the Yellow Turbans from China that got much further than the Boxers.

Most of these examples pit literal stone-age cultures against a mature European empire that was at the height of its Assabiyah. The reason why they had access to these mystical techniques was because of their estrangement from modern civilization, which was both a plus and eventually an insurmountable obstacle. But, as in the case of the Protestants, where tech wasn't as much an issue, they fared much better.

Therefore, if a religious rebellion was ignited, the tech barrier or the reluctance to use modern weaponry will not be as much of a factor. Furthermore, it will be fought by rebels who are not limited by inferior IQ and an inability to work together in large organized structures. White people are far more socialized and able to work beyond clan and tribe structures, for better or for worse. Furthermore, their opponents will largely be janissaries in the employ of the occupation government. History is filled with examples of native rebellions overthrowing foreign powers because of home field advantage. The Arab revolts against the Western powers, for example.

So, actually, the situation is not as bleak as it was for the Indians who were outnumbered, outgunned, and already in concentration camps.

It will get bleaker as time goes on, true.

But the problem has always been trying to figure out how to actually ignite the initial rebellion. Literally millions of words and pages of ink spilled trying to figure out how to get ppl to rise up. And none of these nativist thinkers could provide the correct answer. Instead, they thought like Marxists and assumed that eventually, historical conditions would manifest and a rebellion would manifest spontaneously as a result of bad government policies.

The reason why I wrote out this thesis in my book was to attempt to explain that religious feeling and mystical technology is the match that will light up the powder keg. The underlying conditions are already there. The whole thing is primed to blow.

Whether it will be successful or not is another matter.

But I believe that the "ghost dance" is the key to getting people to rise up.

Expand full comment

Excellent analysis, Rolo, and a helpful complement to John Carter's insightful essay. Your view of religion/spirituality as a cultural technology is especially helpful. I think we will use that technology more effectively than the Ghost Dancers did. The bad news is that South Africa is the fate our occupation governments are pushing us towards. The good news is that America has a warrior/rednecķ class that is a much larger portion of the demographic than the whites were in Rhodesia/South Africa, plus America's warrior/redneck contingent have taken to heart all the lessons from Rhodesia/South Africa (as well as the GWOT), plus America's geography provides them with a lot of friendly territory that will be hard for the regime to control. If the culture war goes hot (definitely am not advocating for anything illegal, but just reading the tea leaves and seeing where things are headed), America's rural whites will be more like the Taliban and the Viet Cong than Rhodesian/South African farmers, in terms of their success. For fostering cohesion and high morale, the religious/spiritual angle will be important, but the future leaders of this movement will know how to use the appropriate technology and techniques to win battles too.

Successful revolts from below are very, very, rarely successful.

Any mass upheaval will come only when the collective affect become regime-disruptive. When this happens, it is over. When a people become ungovernable by established rulers regime collapse is guaranteed. The religious stuff is relevant only because religious shifts (above all mass conversions) take place when the old beliefs lose their meaning, when old values become maladaptive, as a consequence of catastrophic change such as a shift from pastoralism to agriculture or urbanisation.

The quasi-shamanic stuff will make a powerful comeback because of a reaction to dematerialised experience in the form of digital culture and infotainment.

What you've said is true. But you neglect the other if not more important battleground in a spiritual war; high culture. Culture is the ethical transmission "how to feel" passed down from one generation to the next. Virtue is taught through imitation of the heroes, gods and ancestors not by mere copying but through the imagination and "moving with them" which high culture provides. The repudiation of a common tradition blocks the individual's path to membership in the "original experience of the community."

People should learn about – and move with – their past culture and develop an identity based on something besides the rancid sentiment of a Hollywood production. The irony is most men have very little interest in transmitting culture. Look at all the pop culture "stars" like Bruce Springsteen (who apparently hates white people). It's the spiritual equivalent of eating processed food.

Pop culture is downstream from elite culture. Therefore, you're going to have to start figuring out how to change high culture. And that requires learning how to manipulate images, gestures and sounds in time. I'm sorry but all the carefully crafted essays and talk shows in the world cannot change this. They can't change this because humans aren't primarily rational creatures and need, as you know, to be emotionally moved to feel part of an ongoing inheritance and home.

I don't have a distaste for the elites, or rather elitism. Just the opposite. I'm saying if you want to defeat modernism you need to influence and control high culture first. I believe I wrote "pop culture is downstream from high culture." That's pretty emphatic. I then said you (meaning non-apologetic white men) need to figure out how to manipulate images, gestures and sounds in time because writing essays isn't good enough. That's not being passive. Just the opposite. I don't know how I can make myself any clearer.

Basically, I'm saying you'll never defeat modernism, progressivism, whatever you want to call it without religion AND high culture. Becoming religious in the traditional sense isn't good enough because your enemies control the high ground and have learned to feed you shit and are laughing at you, and most people don't even know it, referencing the case of Springsteen to prove my point. I'm saying, STOP BEING PASSIVE and learn how to make your own culture. Go to art, drama and music school for one thing.

The point about politics is to mobilise people in defence of their interests, not to raise the tone of culture. There is already a great tendency for people on the right to larp as defenders of a culture that has largely vanished.

A true rebel is someone who tells the boss to get fucked, not someone who spends their leisure hours pining for the Middle Ages. A great rebel is a good organiser.

Depends on the metal. Black metal, melodic death metal, atmospheric metal - these can possess every bit the emotional and structural depth of classical.

Just a friendly heads-up, but today (21st) marks the end of the human race according to climate change science. Greta Thunberg tweeted five years ago that if we did not stop using fossil fuels completely before the end of today, all humans would die.

It's 09:20 here, so we've got a couple of hours left, according to climet change science.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS AN EVEN WORSE FRAUD THAN THE PLANSCAMDEMIC! SO-CALLED GREEN TECH IS A GIGANTIC SCAM! MINING AND MANUFACTURING 'GREEN' PRODUCTS NEEDS COAL, GAS AND OIL AND MINING RARE MINERALS IS MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY TOXIC AND DESTRUCTIVE THAN LEGACY PRODUCTS. SCREW YOUR DAMNED AGENDA!

We the People are facing HORRIFYING TECHNOCRATIC PSYCHOPATHY TO DESTROY HUMANITY AND ALL NATURAL LIFE!

We the People must always be aware of the existential threats lurking behind this fight!

All manner of lies and propaganda spew forth from the upper echelons in governments worldwide who are completely intertwined with the global criminal ruling class that wants to commit the worst atrocities imaginable and suffer no consequences. And their corruption slithers down the chain of command creating petty tyrants everywhere.

Supporting this excellent post with a statement and useful links. http://rejectdigitalenslavement.com/

It was NEVER about health! The Powers That Should Not Be were ALWAYS about they want you DEAD or a SLAVE! This is a painful truth to accept but we the people must wake up and fight back!

We must never lose sight of the larger picture of the vile malignance we are fighting against.

There is an insidious global ruling class plot to enslave all life on earth behind all the madness and suffering inflicted on We the People.

How to fight back against this TOTAL SLAVERY!

RESIST! DO NOT COMPLY! DITCH THE DAMNED 'SMART' PHONES AND THE DAMNED QR CODES AND GO BACK TO LANDLINES OR FLIP PHONES AND USE CASH AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! INSIST ON CASH! CBDC IS TOTAL SLAVERY!

Other than getting rid of nuclear weapons which I support 100% the rest of the anti-nuclear peace movement and CLIMATE CRISIS propaganda is parroting UN utter GARBAGE, a complete surrender to the ENSLAVEMENT AGENDA by the diabolical despots of Davos - ruling class criminals who lust for total power and control and all of whom should be tried and jailed for life and their malign organizations dismantled: the UN, the WEF, the IMF, the WHO, the BIS, NATO, Blackrock, Vanguard, The Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, The Bilderbergers, the CFR et al.

There is an evil predator globalist technocratic elite agenda of eugenics/depopulation/genocide using bioweapon poison jabs, war, geoengineering, EMF radiation, starvation and economic collapse - THE GREAT RESET/AGENDA 2030/4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION to get rid of billions of 'useless eaters' and to use nano tech to turn the survivors into ROBOTIZED COMPLIANT SLAVES! WAKE UP AND RESIST! DO NOT COMPLY! These are psychopath megalomaniacs who want to play god by turning all life into digitized metaverse mechanistic synthetic biology to be manipulated by their AI algorithms. A more demonic sickening idea is nearly impossible to imagine!

APPALLED AND HORRIFIED AT INSANE TYRANNICAL PROTOCOLS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HEALTH AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH TOTALITARIAN CONTROL! REVERSE THIS NOW!

MAKE THE WORLD AND AMERICA 2019 (comparatively speaking), AND FREE AGAIN!

NO, I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE MORONIC SCARIANT SHMARIANT MONKEYSHINES! WAKE UP ALREADY!

TOTALLY CONDEMN BIDEN AND ALL OTHER POLS WHO HAVE NO POWER TO LAWLESSLY ACT LIKE AN EMPEROR OR DICTATOR AND DECREE JAB CROW 'SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS' FASCIST SEGREGATION/DISCRIMINATION/APARTHEID VIOLATIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION, THE NUREMBERG CODES AND EVERY CIVIL RIGHT IMAGINABLE.

NO GREEN NEW DEALS OR BUILD BACK BETTER FROM THE CRIMINAL TECHNOCRAT TYRANTS KLAUS SCHWAB AND HIS CRONIES FROM THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM.

STOP THE TERRIBLE TYRANNY OF THE TECHNOCRATS GLOBAL AGENDA OF TOTAL SURVEILLANCE AND CONTROL USING THE VIRUS AS EXCUSE AND PROPAGANDA TOOL!

Bravo! Such a great piece of writing...

The only consolation I can draw for now is the general intellectual, spiritual and esthetic nullity that is our global overlord, Social Justice Inc.

The Indians were steamrolled by the European Industrial Revolution and all its enormous brainpower, firepower, and the flood of money, guns and brilliance that crossed the Atlantic; the Han were felled by the might of the British Empire, a confident civilization at the peak of its powers, which still has its fingerprints on so much of modern life; and the Judeans of course were crushed by the Romans, who basically set the template (even down to the names of our days and months) for centuries of civilization to come.

Then we get to Social Justice Inc., which runs entirely on the rapidly dwindling seed corn of a prior time and people, whose only memorable historical monuments will be mountains of trash, who have created ZERO great art or artists or architecture, and whose religion is all rage and empty ritual but no renewal or rejoicing, essentially as pleasurable as coitus sans release.

Let's always remember that the postmodern academy which functions as our civilizational cerebrum has created one product of note that defines them: Deconstruction, which acts as an intellectual cuisinart, and can only slice and dice but never build or create. None of the works of the postmodern theorists will ever be recited at a wedding or funeral, in a love letter or at the bed of a dying loved one—the whole project is a monument to sterility and spite.

Once the money runs out all the tentacles of the global corporate state will wither and die, all the apostles of the creed of Social Justice will pretend they'd never meant it or run off to find gods more durable and less disposable. They have absolutely nothing of value to offer or to pass down, thus they will be swept away and forgotten, the only question is when and how.

By the way, this post for some reason reminds me of the differences between current day China and the GAE. In the GAE the corporations hold sway and control the state, but in China the CPC holds sway and controls the state, and corporations are not allowed to control it.

If you ask me, allowing the corporations to control everything was what really killed the country that used to knows as the US or America. Once they (and the ethnic group that controls them) took over, the native born people became an obstacle that needed to be overcome.

And they have done a good job overcoming us too, so far. Perhaps it will be different in the future, we'll see.

BINGO!!

I see lots of ghost dancing across right wing Substack, and it bugs me greatly.

And I will take your essay as an excuse for over the top self-promotion: I write almost entirely about action plans. I do not know with certainty if my plans will work, but I do know that acting on available information in a semi rational fashion beats the crappe out of conspiracy theorizing and other efforts to explain our fall.

(And ten minutes of training with a .357 magnum beats 10 years of kung fu or weight training. Or, as the libertarian comedian Tim Slagle said, "I have a WARRIOR's belly!")

With that written, I will admit that reviving our traditional religion is PART of my action plan. But it's not the ritual, but the underlying values (and potential divine intervention) that interest me.

And, by the way, the Jews faced a similar situation in the time of Jeremiah. While there was plenty if idol destruction and other religious reforms at the time, the wealthy Jews balked at obeying the Jubilee Laws. But the Jubilee Laws were critical to maintaining an independent Jewish state surrounded by empires. The Jubilee Laws created a vast population of ornery rednecks with Skin in the Game. A country with such rednecks can field a defensive army sufficient to repel the army of an invading empire.

The US situation is analogous to Judah in Jeremiah's day. Our elite are consolidating land and business opportunities. Our military has become professional and small compared to the overall population. Our government no longer trusts its own people. There are so many state secrets that democracy is meaningless on the subject of foreign policy.

Any revival of ceremony must come with revival of underlying relevant ideas. Getting people back into churches to sing more hymns will not likely save us. The spirit of Laws of God can if properly applied for the modern age.

But we must also revive our old secular religion: democracy and limited federal government. A democracy can field a bigger army than a low trust kleptocracy. If we embrace the ideals of the Founding Fathers, we can still field a bigger army than national socialist China -- at least for defensive purposes.

As for how to get the younger generations enthusiastic about the ideals of the West, I have plenty of action plans for that, including actions that will make Santa Claus worshiping Republicans cry.

(Hint: don't mortgage the younger generations' future and then expect them to respect you. And either cut the crappe out of spending or raise taxes on passive investors vs. those who work for their income.)

Given the number of People's Republics, I just use the term democracy for representative democracy (aka republican government in the original sense).

And, by the way, if you don't like my solutions, please complain and/or neener dance! While I am boastfully claiming that I have answers, I admit that some of my answers may not be correct. Let us debate and find the more likely correct answers. Be forewarned that if your argument is convincing, I will incorporate your ideas into my eventual book. Tell me how you want to be cited in that eventuality.

(But before you neener dance, note the records of New England and Scandinavia. Ideas that have failed miserably elsewhere have worked more or less because they had something resembling true democracy. Or, as I point out in Rule 6, the slogan "You can't fight City Hall" is an indication of scale issues vs. ideology.)

E. Michael Jones defines capitalism as "State sponsored usury".

Expand full comment

Context is important. The Biblical Law allowed people to use their family plot and their future labor as collateral. In those circumstances, collecting interest was illegal, but there was a potential period of debt servitude.

But that debt servitude was limited, and debtors were supposed to be given capital upon release.

What we have now is a system where debtor's prison and/or servitude is illegal, but young people are by default starting life in a condition of deep debt with interest.

As someone who is pretty deep in debt for the purpose of starting a potentially lucrative business, I'm cool with paying interest should I succeed. But the option of bankruptcy should be available should I fail.

But for the young, startup capital should be the norm, with taxes to pay-it-forward upon success so the next generation can have the same opportunity.

And this will be one of my future Rules: replace the federal student loan system with a glop of capital for ALL natural born citizens upon reaching 19 (or maybe 20) years old. Let colleges compete with other uses of that capital. Let colleges compete with starting a business, a down payment on a house, or a bitchin sports car. (And yes, a wrecked bitchin sports car is a better education than a degree in Modern Indignation Studies.)

Note the political judo. I just gave you a key to destroying the ultimate source of wokeness while providing Reparations for the Previously Persecuted and the wet dreams of the Bernie voters.

But it will make Establishment Republicans cry.

One of the reasons that debt is so attractive is that in our money system money is created through debt. You go to the banker and take out a loan. The bank doesn't have that credit, mostly, and they go to the FED who creates it by writing it into their accounts. Now you have to pay it back, using your work to justify that money, and pay the interest and charges. You pay of the loan, it is great, but if you go bankrupt, well, at least the bank got rich.

You are a fool not to go into debt because the minimum 2% inflation eats your money as it hides under your mattress or in savings (where the bank makes money by loaning it out at a higher rate) or in stock speculation, and you are a fool to risk bankruptcy, and there is no choice in the matter.

Wealth has become defined as "access to money" and that is about it. Well, maybe access to money AND the ability to pay it back.

I spent part of yesterday watching two versions of the Quiet American: the CIA-tainted original Mankiewicz version and the 2002 version w/ Michael Caine that hews more or less faithfully to the source material. It’s almost funny watching how Mankie’s version goes off the rails — you can almost hear the CIA apparatchik whispering facile nonsense in his ear as the entire drift of the film veers off into la-la-land in the last 15-20 minutes. Lying to the American people about what “we” were up to in southeast Asia from roughly 1945 through the 60’s was key to ginning up support at home for the Vietnam war.

So there was of course great use in denying what we are and keeping the American people ignorant of what it’s govt has been up to. Didn’t see the movie but I’m reminded of that phrase “eternal sunshine of the spotless mind” for how clueless and propagandized we’ve been.

To explain: the pale fugitives from the Blue Zone who have settled in Florida and Texas cling to the hope that the constitutional Ghost Dance will provide safety from expropriation, physical violence and the grossest, most outrageous, forms of social engineering (surgical gender affirmation for pre-teens, COVID plague-management). It is a futile hope because consent decrees, extradition to rival jurisdictions and, in the longer term, ethnic displacement are all on the cards. and placing one's hopes on an extinct constitutional order is on par with dreams of buffalo meat barbecue. Ultimately, the Tropical Helm's Deep crowd are betting that things will calm down elsewhere over time or that they will die before it all just collapses.

Personally, I think the idea that either Florida or Texas will become another Ravenna (the Adriatic enclave in Italy where civilization held on for a bit while the barbarians settled the north) or another Venice (where refugees from the barbarians settled on islands in the lagoon) is preposterous.
