The Only Equal End

Normal people look at the public performance of the Left and have the reaction all normal people have to irrationality. First, they will laugh or scoff at whatever the Left is doing, as both reactions come from the same instinct. It is a dismissal of whatever is going on, as too ridiculous to consider. A man in a sundress demanding to be called “they” is absurd. The kinder souls will laugh at it, while the less kind will dismiss it as vulgar degeneracy. Both reactions are justified, of course.

Once we pass the initial rejection, the reaction of normal people to the cultural lunacy we see on display falls into two buckets. One group will continue to dismiss this stuff, as a sign that the Left is just a bunch of crazy, middle-aged white women and their colored assistants, trying to get attention. The cat-lady factor is so strong on the Left it’s hard not to focus on it. Scan the crowd at an Elizabeth Warren event, for example, and it looks like a clearance sale at the wine mart. Spinsters everywhere.

Now, the other camp that forms up after the initial reaction is the people, who suspect there is a deeper motive to what they are seeing. The Left has been in control of the culture for several generations now, so they cannot be all mad. Steve Sailer, for example, thinks these displays are about keeping the Progressive coalition focused on the evil white men so they don’t attack one another. The bad people suspect this is all part of a plot by the nefarious forces to undermine white society.

There is a third option. This insane behavior is not just performance art, but an assault on rationality and order. It is an attack on the very concept of truth. After all, if it is no longer possible to tell boys from girls, then what is true? The very basics of human biology start with the fact that humans come in two sexes. If the very axioms of human reality are now up for debate, then everything is up for debate, even the claims made by the Left. With no truth, nothing is false. The world is narrative of opinion.

Take, for example, the assertion that race is a social construct. This bit of biological denialism is popular with the Left. So much so they are now demanding white historical figures be played by black actors, to prove that race is imaginary. Now, the demand itself contradicts the assertion. If race is not real, then there would be no reason to demand a black guy play Henry VII or Queen Elizabeth. The demand itself is proof that race is very real, so much so the past must be black-washed.

Even if you don’t accept that, let’s take the “race is not real” argument forward and examine the implications. If race is a social construct, then diversity must also be a social construct. In fact, it is irrational, as what would be the point of decorating an organization with things that do not exist? That also means so-called hate speech is a social construct, as it is rooted in the belief in racial and ethnic differences. If those differences are imaginary, then hate speech is imaginary as well.

None of this matters, of course. What matters to the Left is that observable reality cannot be trusted. They can live with their own assertions falling prey to this logic, as their ultimate objective is a world without objective truth. They seek to create the post-modern world, where the only proper response to physical reality is skepticism, because there is no possibility of reliable knowledge. The modern Left is the political implementation of the academic movement called post-modernism.

Post-modernism is the 20th century academic movement popular in philosophy, the grievance studies and the humanities. It denies the existence of a universal, stable reality, insisting everything is arbitrary and subjective. It is a reaction to science and technology that explains reality in objective terms. The post-modernist claims that reality is constructed as the mind tries to understand its own personal circumstances, within the social construct of society and the perceived reality of others.

This is why the Left is now so vehemently anti-science. A generation ago the proper leftists had a Darwin fish on her Volvo. This was supposed to be a signal that the owner was a member of the “reality based community” not a believer is magic, superstition or, of course, a religion. The Left insisted they were the sober minded realists, rooting their opinions in facts and reason. Their opponents were basing their opinion in fear and the irrational belief in nonsense, like tradition and religion.

In reality, the owner of that Volvo was signally a rejection of the very idea of objective or transcendent truth. That is, after all, what religion offers. It is a set of transcendent truths that define the reality of mankind. The point of a religious text, like the Christian Bible, is to have an objective set of rules that are not up to the whims of a cleric or a religious institution. Scripture is God’s rule book and not up to debate by man. The rejection of religion, is the rejection of such an objective set of truths.

Fast forward to the current year and the Left has moved on from rejecting religion and the reality of religion, onto the rejection of science. Genetics and evolution are nature’s rule book. If you prefer, they are the rule book of nature’s god. This biological reality is not only the framework of life, but puts hard limits on human organization. The rejection of science is the rejection of the possibility of reliable knowledge about the natural world and the nature of man. The guy in the sundress calling ximself “they” is the embodiment of this rejection of knowable truth and factual reality.

Of course, the practical benefit of a world unbound from facts and reasons is that the actors in such a world are unbound from the limits of reason. It is the ultimate freedom, as everything is possible and everything can be justified. It’s also why the Left insists their opponents demonstrate that their objections match up with some set of arbitrary standards selected by the Left. If their opponents are bound to reality, while the Left is free to form whatever construct it needs, the outcome is certain.

There can be only one form of post-modernist rule. The rejection of founding truths, the axioms of the human condition, provides not justification for political power, social status or even a social order. The void of nihilism can only be filled by the will to power and the necessary application of force to attain power and impose order. The perpetual revolution of post-modernism, the endless questioning of objective reality, is the only way for radicalism to attain power and maintain it. The on-going insanity of the Left is the necessary precursor to perpetual Progressive rule.

The endless cultural revolution is like rats gnawing at the support ropes. If left unchecked, there can be only one result from such a process. The endpoint of this perpetual social revolution, the institutional skepticism of reality, is a world without any order at all, even that imposed by the strongest. Even the reality of fear falls away and we fall into a world where it is a war of all against all. In this regard, what the Left has become is war on the very nature of man and the reality that shapes him.

This is the logical endpoint of the Enlightenment. Post-modernism did not spring from nothing. It is the continuation of political philosophy starting with Rousseau, through Nietzsche and into the current age. Western liberalism was born of the irrational belief that man comes into the world as a blank slate and can be fashioned into anything through the proper social structures. Ever since, the goal of liberal political philosophy has been to build the right social structure to achieve universal equality.

Since the utopian goal of universal equality is impossible, it leaves only the equality of nihilistic chaos. A world without truth is a world where noting is false. This is the ultimate equality, where everything is opinion and all opinion is equally worthless. While the Left may seem irrational, they are acting on that old Enlightenment impulse to achieve universal equality. If we cannot be equal in the utopian paradise of our own making, we can be equal in the utter and compete destruction of society. After all, the one place where all men are equal is in the cemetery.

So the end of history is really the end of Progressivism or the Enlightenment. I guess dictatorial rule is next.

I often wonder what “The Plan” is for parliamentarian systems such as they have in Europe. It seems that in the US dual party dictatorship is in effect but the Euros still have multiparty systems that even allow crimethink to have a vote.

Nationalist parties rarely win an outright majority, or any parties in most European countries for that matter.

In the extreme case of Belgium, they outright banned Vlaams Blok, which then had to become a new party Vlaams Belang. Presumably they could arrest and imprison leaders, it looks like Austria will arrest Martin Sellner.

The word “nice” has its origins in the word “foolish.” So, Whitney, not that any logic would work, but I wanted to share with you, if you ever choose, some info for your cousin.

Reference:
https://www.dictionary.com/e/nice-guys/
Nice, it turns out, began as a negative term derived from the Latin nescius, meaning “unaware, ignorant.” This sense of “ignorant” was carried over into English when the word was first borrowed (via French) in the early 1300s. And for almost a century, nice was used to characterize a “stupid, ignorant, or foolish” person.

Comes from ‘ne scio’ – not to know – In the 1938 Oxford English dictionary the elite were using it to mean ‘wanton and dissolute.’

Pedophilia will not be imposed upon you. If you don’t want to be a pedophile, don’t be one. If you don’t want to be involved with that, don’t be involved. I hadn’t heard that about Elton John, but if two people consent to physical intimacy, it’s no one else’s business, regardless of gender, age, race, or any other factor that someone might disapprove of.

All cuckservatives (basically most of Conservative Inc.) need to read today’s posting by Z-man. Truly a work of great Insight and wisdom—and I might add—a better synopsis in 5 minutes than Jordan Peterson’s 50 minute YouTube spiels. Unfortunately, most of them will not have the patience nor intellect to get through it—short and concise though it be.

Similarly, the bulk of Leftist progressives will not understand it either, albeit they march to its tune every day. Sigh.

I would say they both converge from different perspectives. I prefer Peterson’s take, because he understands the need of updating one’s knowledge.

I don’t think this applies. The leadership in places like the Soviet Union was staffed with capable men who did not believe the party line. They understood that their power and position was justified using the concepts of Marxism and equality. Very few actually believed the lies.

Lenin and Trotsky were especially bloody, killing millions in the first couple of years. Wasn’t it Trotsky who had the program of culling good-looking Russian Christian youths?

While doing this, they encouraged race mixing. They also killed 4,000 police upon taking power and released the prisoners.

I love that Dalrymple quote too, but it applies to more than just “communist” propaganda.

Anyone who’s worked at a large corporation has had the experience of being forced to assent to obvious nonsense. And not just in the HR/Diversity context, where the nonsense is ubiquitous, but in normal business as well. I’m thinking for example of “mandatory” policies that if actually followed would make success impossible, but are put in place simply to deflect any possible liability from management.

The late Sam Francis once wrote about outlandish leftist ideas that would get pushback from normal people. The problem was that the left would take their crazy proposal 3 steps forward, and the response would push it back, but instead of all the way back, maybe only 2 steps or 1 step back, resulting in the left gaining ground overall. When this process is repeated numerous times, as it is with the left, since they never let up on their assault on the West….well….here we are.

“That also means so-called hate speech is a social construct, as it is rooted in the belief in racial and ethnic differences. If those differences are imaginary, then hate speech is imaginary as well.” I think you have that backwards. Hate speech is produced by hateful haters, who hate imaginary things called races. It’s real, and the Left can consistently denounce that. What they Left can’t do is engage in hate speech ITSELF, such as “I hate being white” or “I hate white men,” etc.

It’s not (just) the Frankfurt School, because this type of thinking is much earlier. For example, the black sociologist E. Franklin Frazier already published an article titled “The Pathology of Race Prejudice” in 1927.
In my opinion, the most important (((fellow white))) connection is the anthropological school of Franz Boas and his disciples.
Academic “consensus” about the race question had been achieved in the early 1930s in several disciplines (anthropology, psychology, sociology), well before the Frankfurt School could have had any influence in the USA.

From their perspective, it’s the only logical conclusion.

If you truly believe that there are no meaningful biological differences among people and that white racism causes so much harm in the world, literally to the point of killing people and that white refuse to give up that racism, the only thing to do is either expel them, control them or kill them.

They’re not going to expel us. Controlling us won’t stop group differences. That leaves one final solution.

Similar to how libertarians and objectivists wrote the training manuals for lib-spergs that also showed many of us how to escape their own logic-trap.

I don’t consider the Enlightenment “bad”, rather it was the beginning of thought later taken to a conclusion not supported by observable/provable reality. There was at that time less knowledge of how to apply/test such thought/theory. I accept that.

The rules that match observable reality are to be preferred. The process for such may change as we grow more knowledgeable and wiser, but the start is always that there is an observable reality which we may discover.

A lot of modern troubles are due to this kind of logical overreach. The very idea of the “progress” that is supposed to underlie progressivism is a leap of faith that started from a firm enough jumping off place after all. People could clearly see that the steam engine built in 1880 was more efficient, more powerful, better in every way, than one made in 1830.

Religion had given them the Thirty Years War. (And many others.)

Roman Catholics had murdered every other Christian variant in the West, such as St. Patrick’s Werbergundians, the Syrian Nestorians, and the Arianite “heresy”.
The Abrahamic Muslims tried to murder both Catholic and Orthodox empires. The Protestants burned ten times as many people at the stake as the Inquisitors.

And we wonder why “God’s will” was questioned?

Member

Why do people always attribute the sins of man to religion. Find me one passage in the New Testament that tells you to conduct an inquisition or force convert someone. The problem is that most of the major religions are so observably “good” that we begin to assume that anything called a religion is good.

“And once that’s settled, who determines the what “God says”?

Logical reductionism ends up as “turtles all the way down.” Kant and Rand both fell down that rabbit hole.

There’s a point at which we have to stop deconstructing and accept a common premise (today’s geek word – “enthymeme”).

For our purposes, “because we live here” is enough, a kinship/communitarian version of Kant’s “categorical imperative,” if it must be big-brained.

John Gray had a article recently with similar observations;”
The classical liberal economist F.A. Hayek wrote in The Constitution of Liberty (1960): “Progress is movement for movement’s sake, for it is in the process of learning, and in the effects of having learned something new, that man enjoys the gift of his intelligence.” But what is it that is learnt in the course of this purposeless process? Admirable for the clarity and honesty with which it is stated, Hayek’s idea of progress is as much an expression of nihilism as Derrida’s project of deconstruction.”

Progressivism is fundamentally parasitism, and it grows like a cancer in presence of great affluence. It is not a trifle that can be disdained or dismissed lightly. Nor is it a disease that can be cured by rhetoric or persuasion, no matter how clever the message. It is an existential threat to the species and to the health and well-being of civilization itself. It will not change until either the host is dead (societal collapse) or the environment in which in flourishes is altered to disincentivize parasitism.

I don’t see how you can have a politics that doesn’t reflect high morals. Politics is the arbitration of human affairs, how can you do so without a basis of wrong or right? Would you prefer a system without freedom of speech, right to bear arms, freedom of religion? Democracy can be bullshit, I agree. In fact, it is most bullshit, IMO, when it violates these inalienable rights. What philosophical underpinnings would you prefer for these classical liberal values?

Check out Z’s podcasts and posts about civic nationalism, democracy and the Enlightenment. Treating morality as a kind of meta-politics is how we ended up with “nation of immigrants” and “give me your tired…” being “who we are.” It was a neocon/Prog hijacking of the real basis for the American founding – a political rebellion by a distinct people with distinct, non-universal traditions which were suited to a particular race and culture.

If “classical liberal values” are based on “wrong or right,” why is Liberia so wrong and America so right?

I agree that Liberia will always be Liberia, even if it adopted the U.S. Constitution. Lolbertarians are wrong when they believe classical liberalism can be extricated from the people that formed it. But that fact doesn’t soil classical liberal values in my eyes. Rather, I prefer a country of Westerners because it it necessary for a “Bill of Rights” type of society. Cause yeah, I think the Bill of Rights much gel with my Western view of what is “wrong or right.”

For a long time it seemed truly inexplicable that people could come up with something as… autistic as the enlightenment.

But then I looked at what came before the enlightenment and realized that they had partially recovered from something even worse… but only partially.

In a different universe where we quickly realized the errors of the enlightenment and moved on from them, it could be regarded as a positive half step.

Unfortunately we don’t live in that universe.

Where and when “what came before”? Because the bloody French Revolution was a *result* of the enlightenment.

Brundlefly, thanks for smacking Kyle’s defense of the status quo.

The kinder souls will laugh at it, while the less kind will dismiss it as vulgar degeneracy Interesting delineation there. I never really thought the people who did the laughing (or hazing) were kinder people than the ones who keep their opinion to themselves. The very basics of human biology start with the fact that humans come in two sexes. If the very axioms of human reality are now up for debate, then everything is up for debate, even the claims made by the Left. With no truth, nothing is false. The world is narrative of opinion. The first truth… Read more »

I say spirit > biology, so heck yes it’s spiritual warfare.

YES, this is absolutely spiritual warfare. The falling away from the basic right/wrong and Natural Law as taught by Christianity, is the basis for all of this.
…because bourgeoisie European and socialite American women had too much free time to think….

Great post. But what’s sad about it is that it even needs to be articulated. It’s like an argument I recently had with a friend about “common decency” – it’s simply NOT common, not even among white folk. Ditto with “common sense.” But if there’s to be an eventual reformation then there needs to be a remnant … in the meantime that remnant need to completely unplug from anything/everything that isn’t true, good, and beautiful. Which also demands that we war against falsehood, perversions, and depravity.

We’re not quite there with regards to science. Here in the Bay Area you see virtue signs that say “In this house we believe…”. Along with Black Lives Matter and Women’s Rights Are Human Rights it says Science is Real.

Somewhat related: I’m waiting for a flight at SFO and they’ve stopped selling water in plastic bottles. To save the planet I suppose. Water is now only sold in these clunky metal bottles. Of course sodas are still sold in plastic.

Well that torches my fritters. “In this house” is a direct rip-off of “As to my house, we shall serve the Lord”, and it’s oddly clean, stable, work-worthy families.

(Triggered because I’m seeing ‘this house shall serve’ more and more, on cars all over the country. The people in those cars look simply like decent people. Not a tatoo in sight.)

Around here in the region of the Imperial Capital, our signs say “Hate has no home here.” It is in many front yards.
When I see those signs, that’s all I need to know: pathological altruists.

On the plus side, if you’re a homeless alcoholic, preferably non-white, looking for a place to sleep off a bender, find a house with one of those “all are welcome here” signs and make yourself at home.

I don’t have a problem with actors playing characters of a different race. In most cases, I’m suspending disbelief anyway, so what’s one more thing. James Earl Jones played a character in Field of Dreams that was based on a white author – J.D. Salinger. It didn’t matter because race was not central to the character or the story. Of course, the left insists that race is central to everything.

But most drama weaves its spell by being at least quasi-realistic. As the spectator-participant you have to allow some dramatic license, but it depends on how stylized the art form is. Leontyne Price as an Italian queen in an operatic role is not a problem, because her voice (not her appearance) is the “character.” But there are limits. A blonde Cleopatra or a Negro Trojan in a movie is simply too jarring. I can sympathize with a talented black actor who’s unhappy that there are so few roles in plays about white people that are suitable for him. But everyone… Read more »

Re: ” After all, the one place where all men are equal is in the cemetery. ”

You see – this is where we can apply some logic.

Just tell the nihilists and equality mongers that if they TRULY believe in what they claim to believe – they should just kill themselves.

We just need to insert the mental virus that the ultimate goal of their leftism – is their own death.

Preferably as soon as possible.

And by their own hand.

Just to prove how much the “believe”

Absolutely brilliant. Terrific post. Thoughtful, cogent, reasoned and if used correctly, arms for the man. Damn. Made my day.
