Fear, Force & Convenience

Every society is held together by a number of forces. Trust, tradition, blood, fear, force and convenience work in combination to keep a society whole. Until recent, trust was the strong force in Scandinavian societies. Tradition and blood played a large role, but those have been diluted with diversity. North Korea, in contrast, relies on the threat of state violence to keep society together. Tradition and blood still play a role, but it is mostly fear of being sent to a camp that keeps society together.

In America, trust was always the force that kept local community together, while tradition kept regional identity together. America was always a big country with lots of room, so self-segregation smoothed over the rough spots. With the elimination of free association and the importation of millions of foreigners, social trust is rapidly breaking down and being replaced with state force. For now, trouble makers are sent to diversity training, rather than a labor camp, but the idea is the same.

The thing is, America still remains a big place with lots of room, so the North Korean model is not going to hold it together. Even the Scandinavian model of soft authoritarianism, run by mentally disturbed women, is unlikely to hold the country together in a crisis. In fact, that model is probably the least plausible in a crisis, as the women in this sort of system are crisis actors, not crisis managers. Politics gives them the attention that normal life does not afford them.

That’s something to keep in mind when thinking about what comes next. The soft, feminine authoritarianism we see in the West is a free rider. It is possible because of the inertia from the old high trust societies that came before it. If Finland faced a real crisis, one that threatened its existed, the first thing that happens is their pixie of prime minister is replaced with a serious person. The same would be true in Canada, where their gender fluid prime minister is mostly a luxury item.

Putting that aside, the question for Americans is where would trust be placed in a crisis, enough trust to wield the force necessary to mobilize the country. For a long time, Gallup has been polling people about confidence in various institutions. For example, in 1973, 65% of the America public said they had a great deal or quite a lot of trust in religious institutions. Today it is 36%. The change in the no trust column has gone from single digits to 25%, more than the great deal of trust column.

A similar decline in trust has occurred with the political institutions. The Supreme Court still enjoys the trust of 38% of the public. Those court trusters are probably the Baby Boom generation, as they have always had the highest trust in the courts. Even today, they will argue that the courts will protect the constitution. This is why they support Trump, despite his problems. He’s going to nominate good judges, so the argument goes, and those judges will follow the constitution.

Congress, on the other hand, is down to 11%. That seems amazingly high, but maybe that number reflects the public work force. Even crazier, 45% of the public trusted Congress in 1973. That right there is a great metric when trying to understand the relationship between diversity and social trust. The flood gates of diversity opened in the 1960’s. As the hordes poured into your cities and towns, social trust began to collapse, showing up in the people’s house of government.

Another area where the cancer of diversity reveals itself is in the schools. Trust in the public schools is at 29% from 59% in 1973. A half century ago, Americans could send their kids off to the local school, knowing their classmates would be neighbors and the teacher would be someone they knew. Today, the grammar school classes look like the bar scene from Star Wars and the teachers are dangerous weirdos. The kids pass through metal detectors and they wear Kevlar book bags.

Trust in newspapers has not changed much. That’s probably not a very good metric when trying to figure out what’s happening. The only people consuming newspapers these days are old white people. Within a decade, most cities in America will no longer have a newspaper. The big media sites are megaphones for the managerial state, so comparing them to newspapers is not accurate. Still, the numbers suggest that white people have always been skeptical of the news media.

The two institutions that jump out are the military and police. Today, 53% of Americans say they trust the police a great deal or quite a lot. Even more impressive, 73% of the people trust the military. The only other “institution” with this degree of trust is small business, and that’s not really an institution. Instead, that’s residual trust in community that has carried over in spite of diversity. People still have a high opinion of the local business man who contributes to his community.

That brings us back to those forces that hold society together. In modern America, diversity is destroying trust in the civic institutions. The long culture war has destroyed trust in religion. The two most trusted institutions are the two given the right to use deadly force in defense of society. Like the executioner, the warrior, is permitted to spill blood, thus elevating him to the highest rank of every society. In a crisis, it is always the executioner and the soldier, who rise to the top.

There is a difference between the warrior and the executioner. The latter is the last line of defense, something tolerated, not celebrated. The former is a forward deployed defender, celebrated for his spilling of blood. No society throws a parade for its famous executioner. The soldier, on the other hand, is a hero to his people for spilling the blood of the enemy, real or imagined. Unlike any other citizen, if there is doubt about his actions, he gets the benefit of the doubt.

It is tempting to assume from this that the next step to the diverse multicultural paradise is a world run by cops and soldiers. Most likely, it will be the custodial state that incorporates both institutions. Instead of the military seizing control of the government, it will be corporations seizing control of the military and police. That’s what you see with tech companies helping local police install surveillance equipment in the homes of suburbanites and cameras on the streets of the ghetto.

Over the next year, Americans will be forced to stand in line at their local motor vehicle department to get a “real ID.” This will be required to enter a government building or travel on an airplane. Soon, it will be required for banking, travel from one zone to another, and all government and corporate services. To have a social media account, will require you provide your real ID. To have phone service or e-mail will require you to show your papers to an officer of the corporate state.

The role of cops and soldiers will be the same as in the prior arrangements. Instead of these institutions defending the civil institutions, they will be deployed to defend the new custodial state. They will get awards for capturing twitter trolls, instead of capturing bank robbers. Social trust will be replaced with fear of ostracism, the force of the corporate state and the convenience of weekend drone delivery. These are the forces that will hold together the post-national custodial state.

Apart from medical mistakes, it would be highly instructive to look at Medicare/Medicaid and insurance fraud by race of physician, and also by whether the doctor is a US medical grad or an IMG/FMG (international/foreign medical grad).

Well, you may have not seen a police car for months, but my dear friend’s daughter in England sent a bunch of photos of a mobile scanner the British police set up in her heavily White northern town, and forced people (White people, of course) to walk through or face arrest. No probable cause, just grabbing people off the street and forcing them to go through the mobile metal detector/weapons scanner.

My impression of the olden days is that mid century America with its declining wealth inequality, low immigration, and egalitarian political majority (i.e. unions were empowered, anti-trust was enforced, tariffs) was the result of some very hard fought victories against the Cloud People. There was absolutely nothing “natural” about it. To believe that the natural order of man is a thriving, growing, politically empowered middle and working class rather than massive wealth inequality and a tiny Cloud Society that vigorously pursues its own interests is so historically ignorant that only a civnat could swallow it.

The high trust and confidence in the police and military is probably in large part due to their historic role, the limited number of interactions with both for most people…and their hero status in movies and TV.

The police enjoy high trust among whites (and probably fairly high among Hispanics and Asians) because for the time being, they are protecting us from the diversity, mostly blacks. When the main role of police becomes enforcing Diversity Uber Alles and the Left’s social credit system, the white public’s trust in the police will collapse quickly.

The military (the world’s largest middle-class welfare program) enjoys unprecedented propaganda. Also, a lot of whites have family that served. The military likely remain popular unless those guns are turned inward.

As a precursor to the takeover of charity, I think the first serious legal ‘divide’ (as in “and conquer”) was the unscrupulous Prohibition and 2nd Prohibition. We never needed informants and secret police before that camel’s nose was pushed under the tent. A mild difference in appetites, ignored for 300 years, has utterly transformed our social structures.

The absence of serious men allows for leadership luxuries in the modern state. Judging the seriousness of a man can be entirely passively observed. What they do with their money, family, time, God…words matter little. It’s the fruit of the tree that proves it’s worth. So the browns rising to power and influence, don’t realize their allowances are tolerated. They earned none of their positions. The serious men checked out?

If the military is so trusted, you’d expect a junta to take over and restore order. If they’d stand down and allow corporations to run things, you have to wonder if they’re worth trusting.

The military is not to be trusted, especially it’s general officers. All of whom are vetted by the swamp before being promoted to general. You can bet your last dollar the military will never stage a coup. Also consider this when Trump proposed withdrawing from Syria the military brass almost revolted against him. same with him trying to withdraw from Afghanistan. Those men are not our allies and do not have America’s interest in mind. Historically the military has also shown zero hesitation in shooting Americans dead.

You could argue Washington was a warlord and a tyrant who used the military against Americans, and you’d be correct. At the same time, he resigned when he could’ve been king, and he’s rightfully revered for that.

I’m not discounting the pessimistic view, but something doesn’t add up about it. America has been on the edge of control from the beginning, and yet it’s still here, somehow.

Not sure what I’m trying to say, but I expect us to figure a way out of this mess.

The guy had to preside over the constitutional convention because his presence, and the force he represented, gave the proceedings legitimacy. This nation was born by force. Most nations have been and are held together with it. Gotta get the people in line, gotta beat that civilization into them, or at least threaten to. We’ve been conditioned to think that’s a terrible thing in all cases, but sometimes it’s not. (Something else libertarians fundamentally get wrong.)

For the military to make an open run at the government (you said “junta”) you’d need to be facing a situation where the Constitution is already, or close to being, suspended. Not quit there yet. People are pretending those Amendments still mean something. Public trust in the military in modern times has always befuddled me a little.

None of this is especially likely. Getting better through getting worse or collapse is not especially appealing to me. Things rarely get better by getting worse.

People imagine that if things get bad enough, there will be no rules and then they can just kill the people they don’t like or they magically survive and the people they don’t like die off conveniently.

A couple of years ago there was a widespread outage in my neighborhood from a storm.

It’s clear that trust, beyond the people you know and live with in your tight little circle, is totally kaput. With that in mind, the near term task is not to restore broader trust, but to make sure the leverage of force and fear is aligned with us. If “live and let live” is dead (thanks, lefties, from Woodrow Wilson on up), then “every man for himself” is the new thing. Self sufficiency, local community, and bend all the institutions you can into alignment with what you want.

The cities began collapsing in the 70s as city after city elected black mayors, black chiefs of police and other political cops, the city bureaucracies, transit etc. The turning of our once great cities into giants gibs projects and the ensuing white flight not only decimated the cities physically, but also culturally.

The likelihood of losing electricity nationwide for 10 years is so low that it’s not even worth considering. The loss of electricity in a metro area or large zone is only a little less unlikely. Anything capable of doing such damage is probably going to have far bigger consequences than power outage, widespread or not. The failure to take care of trash and sewage is probably a much bigger and more likely risk. We are already seeing conditions that could spread plagues in major cities in the US like San Francisco and Los Angeles. Somebody posted a video, I think… Read more »

“…a “real ID will be required to enter a government building or travel on an airplane. Soon, it will be required for banking.”

That form of ID already exists and even the Zman has one. It’s called a Passport.

Were you aware, that even though you have to pay for a passport, a US passport is not your property. Read it. It belongs to the US Government and “…must be surrendered upon demand made by an authorized representative of the US Government”.

Correct. It is the property of the State Department.

Which means the government can legally prevent you from leaving the country anytime they want.

“A 1978 amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 made it illegal to enter or depart the United States without an issued passport even in peacetime.” – Wikipedia

In the Brave New World that Zman describes, the power players in the clouds will endeavor to remain amorphous and mysterious and essentially unknown for the role they play in homogenizing society into an insect-like species. Rather than rely on Jackboot force to keep the Untermenchen in line, they would prefer memetic indoctrination as the control lever (hello Antifa). But there is a paradigm that kills off this type of disease, and it requires focus, intelligence, and innovation. Simple, secret, solo, and spontaneous.

Sorry to disagree, but N Korea is not held together by fear. With their total control of education and media they undoubtedly have far fewer “troublemakers” or even quiet dissidents than America has. Relentless inculcation holds NK together, as it did the USSR, Nazi Germany or Saddam’s Iraq, regardless of the regime’s successes or failures.
