The coalition of the ascendant loves to talk about the glorious future in which they are in complete control. They just assume that everything will be like it is today in a material sense, except they will get to divvy up the goods of the vanquished among themselves, like pirates sharing out a captured treasure. America will just be a swarthier version of what it was in the 1950’s. It is the assumption of people who have fully consumed the multicultural propaganda used to create the coalition of the ascendant.
This vision of the future is no doubt a driving force behind the race radicalism of people like Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. It assumes things about people that are not true. The old gag about Magic Dirt Theory is a joke among dissidents, but people like Rashida Tlaib think it is real. She thinks if her people move here, displacing the heritage stock, nothing changes but the complexion. Her people will suddenly stop acting like her people and take on the habits of our people, but with more color.
This is nonsense, of course, because much of what we think of as American society exists because heritage Americans support it. The people who created this society would have done so wherever they landed. We know this because it has happened in places like Australia and even Africa. Despite it all, countries like Rhodesia and South Africa were able to create first world societies. In the game of dirt, no place has more tragic dirt than the Dark Continent. Yet Rhodesia existed. South Africa existed.
Sports entertainment is a good place to start when thinking about how America will change as it slips into its dark age. This story about the suffering of stock car racing is a good example. NASCAR was always a regional thing, so when they went chasing a global audience, it was always going to be trouble. When the demographic changes started to hit, that’s when things turned ugly for them. Those old white guys are just not turning up to drink beer, wear jorts and watch cars ride around in a circle.
Another example is tennis. In the 70’s and 80’s, when Baby Boomers were able to swing a tennis racket, the sport enjoyed great success. Big matches on TV not only got big audiences, they were cultural phenomenon. Once the Boomers got too old to play, tennis stopped being important. Instead, golf started to boom as those same pasty Boomers took up the sport in droves. Now that the Boomers are in the final turn, golf has fallen into recession, as fewer people play the game.
Another area you can get a glimpse of the coming dark age is in community activity like youth sports leagues. Those in Gen-X probably remember in their youth how the youth leagues atrophied as their generation was relatively tiny compared to those that preceded them. Today, of course, you can drive around for days without seeing kids out playing on a ball field. Youth sports have been in decline for a while now. This will only accelerate as the people who make such things possible are marginalized.
The decline of youth sports leagues are another great example of how the decline is a process of gradually then all of a sudden. The decline in youth sports leagues and community based activity has been going on for decades, but people tended not to notice the decline. It’s when the high school drops the football team or maybe all of their sports teams that it becomes obvious. The decline was not noticed until the park where men played youth baseball is suddenly turned into Starbucks.
Another part of the entertainment world offers a glimpse of the future. A popular topic in certain circles is just how dumb and repetitive movies and television have become. All of the big movies are based on children’s comic books. The male leads are replaced by females or people from the ascendant, done in such a way as to make that the point of the movie. Television has always been for stupid people, but now it is just endless screed against heritage America, like the recent Pride Month nonsense.
The reason movies have managed to get dumber and duller is the audience has dramatically changed. Hollywood no longer caters to heritage America. Instead, it is focused on the ascendant that now fill the domestic theaters and the theaters in their source countries. Television has become exactly what was portrayed in the movie Idiocracy, but the reason is not that people are getting dumber. The reason for the decline is that the audience is getting darker.
None of this is novel to people into dissident politics. Much of what is driving dissident politics in the West is demographics. The thing is though, it is assumes that the current process will either lead to America following the path of Detroit or heading down a path to Brazil. Both of those scenarios are probably wrong. Instead, America as a whole will follow the path we see in community activities and our entertainments. Cultural inertial will carry us along until all of a sudden we enter a dark age.
The reason for this is unlike Detroit, this process is gradual. White people flooded out of cities like Detroit in a decade. Baltimore, for example, went from being a working class white city to a majority black city in two decades. Those fleeing whites took their human and social capital with them to the suburbs. They recreated their institutions in their new lands. Baltimore became an urban reservation system with some centrally located facilities, still vital to the surrounding population.
The Brazil model does not work, as it was never a high-trust, fully modern society operating along European rules. It never rose much above what its human capital could support, so it evolved institutions that fit the population. America’s institutions evolved for a different population. Those cultural and political institutions in the hands of the ascendant will be like handing out smart phones to the Sentinelese. In time, the inhabitants will look around and wonder about the gods who made the ruins in which they live.
That’s the nature of dark ages. Slowly, then suddenly the relatively high-IQ population is swapped out for a lesser population. It’s not that the new population has no one smart enough to work on an aqueduct or understand how to maintain an electrical grid. It’s that there are not enough of them. The population suddenly finds itself left with social, economic and political tools it cannot use. A dark age descends as the people have to start recreating tools suitable for the population.
