Public Acts of Piety

Scipio Africanus was a great Roman general. He was the man who bested Hannibal, the great Carthaginian general, at the Battle of Zama. In addition to being a great general, Scipio was a great politician. Then as a now, you did not get a chance to be a great general unless you were very good at politics. Politics being what it is, even the great Scipio had his enemies. For example, the warmongering lunatic Cato the Elder, the neocon of his day, accused Scipio of corruption, after he had retired from public life.

One of the ways Scipio navigated his way through the political system was by showing the Roman public he was a man of great piety. He showed his filial piety by risking his life to save his father’s life, when he was wounded and surrounded by enemies at the battle of Ticinus. Later, he volunteered to take command of the army of Spain, even though it was not a glamorous position, in order to follow in his father’s path. Scipio also made sure the public saw him making sacrifices to the gods and conducting himself with great probity.

The point of this, is that it is a natural part of civic life, for the rulers to make a big show of their honor and morality. As in the case of Scipio, public acts of piety are an important part of the political process. They signal to the public and the political class, that the person supports and defends the codes of society.There is the civic code, which defines the political life of society. Then there is the moral code, usually religion, that defines the daily life of the people. The shrewd politician is careful to make sure he is good at both.

This works out well when there is a commonly held religion, even in a very general sense like Christianity. A century ago, an American politician was expected to be seen going to church, for example. He would salt his language with references to the Bible and religious teaching, in order to signal that he was a good Christian. Of course, it was also important to have a unifying set of civil customs. A century ago, most Americans agreed on a set of beliefs, that constituted being a good citizen, Politicians signaled them as well.

Today, we live in a post-Christian age, where most of ruling class is unfamiliar with traditional religion and often hostile to it. Instead, our rulers believe in a grab bag of fads that define multiculturalism. Political correctness is the enforcement arm of this amorphous new faith, so signaling agreement with the current PC causes is how our rulers try to tell us they are moral people. People hoping to rise into the upper ranks, invest all of their time in public acts of piety, often on-line, to prove they are worthy of admission.

Similarly, there is no agreed upon civics. Instead it is a collection of mystical chants based loosely around the concept of democracy. In the cosmopolitan globalism of our age, there is no longer the concept of citizenship, so it is impossible to appeal to our patriotism and civic duty. Instead, our rulers invest their time worshiping undefined things like “our democracy” often using the same language of the prior era. The difference is, “our way of life” meant something, while “our democracy” means pretty much nothing.

The thing is, those old sets of codes had limits built into their definitions. One was pious, in the Christian sense, as long as you lacked the sins common to most men. There was no level beyond pious and even the most faithful man was always tempted. Perfection was not an option. Similarly, civic pride had a natural limit. You were a good citizen, as long as you lacked the things associated with being a bad citizen. In other words, piety was not about what you had, it was about what you lacked, with zero being the natural limit.

In the new religion, there is no limiting principle. It’s utopian nature encourages the adherent to seek the next step, the next higher plane of piety. Twenty years ago, being nice to homosexuals was a sign of goodness. Then embracing the homosexual lifestyle was the next level of piety. Then civil marriage then marriage and now we have people demanding school boys wear sundresses. Since multiculturalism is, by definition, the nullification of culture, there’s no limit to how much one can hate their own society.

That’s the other thing that makes the new religion so bizarre and erratic. There is no well defined promised land to this utopian cult. They talk about equality, but in the vaguest terms. There’s no standard of equality against which we can measure progress. There’s just the demand for more equal. The same is true of justice. There’s no definition of the concept, which is why it most often sounds like vengeance. No matter how much the despised group does, it is never enough. “We can always do more” is the only rule.

Reality is the natural barrier between the fanatics and their desired utopia. Their inability to to reach the promised land, however, does not cause them to reconsider the project. Instead, they re-double their efforts, staking out even more bizarre positions. Thirty years ago, homosexual marriage was a punch line for popular comics. Today, laughing at those jokes gets you thrown in jail. Just take a moment and consider what comes after the compulsory acceptance of transvestites. The new religion moves quickly.

So for the left, that scenario is a Lose-Lose unless they are perverted enough to think that its okay to get their heads chopped off since we got ours chopped off first.

The Islamics are mainly concerned about their own lands and getting the NATO thugs out of them.

CAIR and similar groups follow the Islamic demand that they infiltrate and convert non-Muslim cultures, like ours, to their cause. It is “God’s will”, according to them. Their incessant caterwauling about islamophobia (a mostly nonexistent crime that is an invented fiction) is their tool of choice, because the snowflakes fall for it every time.

So while I agree that the Muslims over there are not exactly in control of things any more, they continue to exercise a form of brainwashing of the gullible over here.

What comes next is forced diversity, via a lottery. We need more transvestites so they won’t feel like an oppressed minority? We pick fifty thousand men’s names at random and force them to start taking estrogen, wearing dresses and having surgery. We need less Asians because they’re too smart? We pick fifty thousand names from a hat and gas them. White men, we round up, put in camps and make them slave labor. The lotteries will of course be rigged. Can’t have any Clinton or Kennedy men changed into women or made slaves.

It’s pretty classic “Opposite Rule” Liberalism: take the opposite of what normal people think, say, and do, and then adopt the opposite while calling it “progressive”. If a normal person has an instinct about something, whether it’s a personal decision or a matter of public policy, just assume they are actively working to advance the exact opposite. That’s why it does no good to say their impulses and ideas are unConstitutional. They are anti-Constitutional, which is a big difference.

I agree. Just like “Will and Grace” made homosexuals lovable, there will be a similar show about pederasts.

They will make the older man a sort of charming Elton John and they will present it like he has a chaste crush on a 14 year old boy. The producers of the show will adorn the dialog with sentimental treacle but the end result will be that progressive women viewers will be crying at the beauty of the fact that a 45… Read more »

I’ve not gotten much traction here in the past, but I believe that the era most like this one is the period between the Macabean revolt and the Second Jewish revolt. Greek and Roman sophisticates were telling Jewish rustics that it was OK to expose their unwanted babies, sell their daughters into prostitution, and let their sons study at the academy and get buggered by some wannabe Socrates. When the Jewish rustics wouldn’t do those things, the Gentiles tried to force them. The Jews would rather fight than switch. The Christians chose martyrdom and subversion instead.

Modern ‘piety’ of this sort is driven less by a desire to conform to the sacred expectation of society and more driven by fear. It’s fear of being on the wrong side of the inquisitors.

There is another kind of ‘piety’ common mostly on the right, which is a kind of slavish dutifulness among some sons to follow their father’s path exactly. I’m talking specifically about the Bush and Romney dynasties (the Kennedys had a similar thing but they appear to have descended into the kind of inbred New England depravity you find in HP Lovecraft stories).
