Who’s In Charge

The alt-right boys are fond of talking about the various red pills and how their issue is the “ultimate red pill.” They are not entirely wrong. People are willing to accept some things more than others. All of us bob around in an ocean of agit-prop, pumped out by the people that rule over us. That is, though, the ultimate red pill. All the stuff we believe about democracy, our political order and the intentions of the people who rule over us, is mostly nonsense. Our ruling class is no different than any other in human history.

Steve Sailer is fond of talking about the Deep State, mostly as a way to explain how the people in the ruling class collude with one another against the interests of the voters and their elected officials. It’s not a conspiracy, with Ernst Blofeld controlling the world from his secret lair. It’s more like a community of like minded people, who exist within the high ground of the society. They hire one another, they socialize, their kids marry each other and they try to keep elected officials from screwing up their grand designs.

A good recent example is Alexei Navalny. He is the latest Russian opposition leader to cause trouble for Putin. He was recently arrested for trying to stage a protest of Putin’s run for another term in office. Navalny was just another guy until he spent time at Yale in the World Fellows Program. Then all of a sudden, out of the blue, he became a crusader against financial corruption in Russia. It’s not like any important people in America have connections to Yale. It is probably just a massive coincidence.

Putin, of course, is enemy number one for the Washington political elite. That means Mr. Navalny will be celebrated in the American media, while reliable politicians are sent out to tell us how Putin is the next Hitler. No one voted for this and no one in the elected class gives a damn about Alexei Navalny, but the people who were there befor the politicians showed up, and will be there after they are gone, do care so everyone cares. It all sounds conspiratorial, but it is just the way countries run, even America.

Another example of this is this story about John Forbes Kerry causing trouble in the Middle East. He’s telling the Palestinians to not cooperate with Trump as he expects a new president within a year. It’s totally a coincidence that Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor, was in the same prep school as John Forbes Kerry. In fact, they were on the lacrosse team together. Now, only a conspiracy nut would think there is any connection here. What are the odds that these two classmates talk about politics?

Again, it is not some wide ranging, multi-generational conspiracy. Every society has its elites and those elites control the state. For example, twenty-two families have controlled Guatemala since 1531. Another twenty-six families have married into this core group of elite families. The result is one percent of the population, the descendants of the Conquistadors, has controlled the country for over 450 years. It’s why their political elites tend to look like Old World Spaniards, rather than the indigenous Indian tribes.

In the case of America, year after year our elite colleges turn out a new crop of boys and girls from the best families. Many go into government, some go into media, others go into finance. Most go onto live self-actualizing lives in the top floors of American society. Their parents and friend’s parents help them along wherever they land. If it is government, they bounce from assignment to assignment, eventually landing in one of the Senior Executive Service positions. Or even better, a presidential appointment.

What does this all mean?

It means elections don’t matter all that much. Sure, getting Trump rather than Clinton is a big deal, but that’s just an exception to the rule. Clinton, Bush and Obama were pretty much the same guy. Their administrations were stocked with the same cronies that stocked the other administrations. Maybe they had slightly different ideas on how to sacrifice white Americans in the service of Israel, but otherwise they were on the same page on the big stuff. The people voted and then the people in charge ignored them.

Of course, this means those super-Progressive women are crazier than you think. These women, walking around thinking they are revolting against the patriarchy, are actually the vanguard of its defense. The proof that liberalism is a cult is that the members are sure they are a revolutionary vanguard, defending the status quo against the general public. That’s a degree of madness that exists only in mental hospitals and revivals. It’s why there is no reasoning with a Progressive. They have descended into madness.

It also means changing the current trajectory of the nation is not happening at the ballot box. As Steve Sailer noted today, the people in charge have gone insane. The orgy of anti-Americanism, particularity the hatred for whites, is a group psychosis. Fixing this is not going to happen with elections. It changes when the ruling class changes and that probably means the swankier parts of Cloud Country will experience car bombs, IED’s and assassinations. One Arthur Bremmer is worth an election full of ballots.

One of the funnier things about the Resist movement is that a number of them resigned their government jobs in protest. It’s amazing when you think about it because otherwise these people were essentially impossible to fire.

A graduate of Groton and Yale University, he is currently a VP at Morgan Stanley.

I’d say that the stretch from Bush 41 through Obama (28 yrs) was the longest time since Hoover/FDR/Truman (34 yrs) that we’ve essentially had the same people in charge, not counting the financial system (1913-present). I think some of it has to do with the fact that senatorial races are no longer state but national contests due to the fact of popular elections of senators vs appointment by state legislatures. That was how “favorite son” candidates were generated. Losing this aspect of regionalism affecting the conversation at the national level increased the ability of East Coast Elites to control things.… Read more »

McCain and Kerry being the last of a dying breed. Mattis didn’t attend an elite university, he went through OCS and rose commanding infantry units.

Correct. Is Trump an exception to the rule, Z? Or is he the first pebble to go skipping down the slope with the avalanche roaring after? I am asking because I don’t know. To get elected, any candidate has to appeal to the political centre. America’s political centre has been having non-stop red pill suppositories for the last 15~20 years and they are getting sick and tired of them. If their system still worked, Hillary would have wiped the mat with Trump in the last election. The tools and useful fools are failing the Cloud People too: the mass media… Read more »

The fact that a lot of guys like me went overseas makes “The Noticing” that much stronger than if we had stayed home. Seeing what we did has radicalized many to the dangers our effete elites pose to Traditional America.

Tam; You are right that the elite don’t send their kids into the military. This started with Vietnam and was one of the drivers of the protests then. When I was job hunting after first getting off active duty in the ’70s, I was basically told I had been a chump. It was almost as though you had demonstrated that you were *not* elite material by serving in their wars. You can imagine what feelings that caused.

That’s what the problem is with our “leaders”. Previously in Western military history, the elites were obligated to prove their worth to lead by risking their own lives and in maturity, the lives of their sons. Every single one of Robert E. Lee’s sons served in combat. Joe Kennedy’s kids volunteered. One died and JFK almost got killed too. James Roosevelt made the Makin Raid with Carlson in 1942, while his father sat in the White House.

Indeed, I went to school with these people…Even at the college level, the real in-groupers like Kerry, Bush and Mueller, and even more so people connected with the really powerful families, generally midwits at best, had little or no contact with the rest of us.

The U.S. won’t survive much more of this insanity unless we push back and make it clear to the elites there is a cost involved, a steep one if they persist on the course they’ve chosen. You don’t push a entire people into a corner when they are armed to the teeth. I don’t want it to come to that, but the elites are making it abundantly clear “white man!

My father who served at a nuclear missile site during the 70’s echoed that.

Their social standing depends on staying in the good graces of the Jewish dominated mass media. Think I’m lying? Try this mental experiment.

Yes, realism matters. We cannot talk our way out of the problems that we are in (that’s not how the real world works). We can, and should, use our brains to assess and predict, then plan and respond. You have correctly identified the focus of the problem. There are many solution options. Seek out the ones that work the best. That is evolutionary progress.

Guatemala is a good analogy. We are used to seeing the upper class, the ivy league and other elite groups as simply the successful part of one society. As a bunch of local boys who made good. Instead we can see that the character of this group has degraded to the point where it is entirely parasitic and exploitative in every way. The worst part isn’t the economic exploitation.
