Radical Disorder

A mistake often made when analyzing the actions of the Left is to assume everything they do is driven by some master plan. For example, there’s a touch of conspiracy mongering in all of the George Soros stuff. While there is no doubt he is an evil person, much of what he finances is unknown to him.  Left-wing activism is full of grifters and scammers attracted to the free flow of cash. More important, it is a bug lamp for the mentally unstable, whose activism is based on pure instinct. They don’t think about what they are doing.

The attack on Tucker Carlson’s house is a great example. That’s the sort of escalation that a subversive mastermind would not approve. The reason is the Left is far more vulnerable to this sort of thing than the gentry conservatives. Progressive enclaves are made up to look like 1950’s America with a limited police presence and no surveillance cameras. Then there is the fact that the ever-so-slightly to the right talking heads all live in Progressive enclaves. All their neighbors are barking at the moon lefties.

Now, the people responsible for the “action” against Carlson were certainly just acting on a  whim. The people financing them are similarly acting from emotion, rather than strategic thinking. They feel like they are doing something and they somewhat envy the people who get involved in street activism. A major part of the Antifa performance is exactly that, a performance. It’s aimed at the bourgeois bohemians who write checks to operations like the One People’s Project, one of the financiers of Antifa.

This has always been a part of radical activism in the United States, at least since the 1960’s with the rise of the New Left. Read the biographies of people like David Horowitz or histories of groups like the Weathermen, and two things always shine through. One is the activists were often seeking attention from their parents. These were kids raised in bourgeois opulence, but desperate for attention. That’s the thing that turns up over and over in 60’s radicalism. Most of it was just an effort to scandalize their parents.

Then there is the fact that almost all of it was financed by middle and upper middle class people. Radicalism in America is a bourgeois enterprise. People often get this confused, thinking that the Left is just a bunch of hypocrites. After all, the most liberal places on earth are the wealthiest. Today, all of the politically active billionaires are throwing their money into causes that claim to oppose neoliberal capitalism. George Soros is a billionaire, yet he pours money into groups that swear they are going to murder the rich.

Even if you put aside the puerile emotionalism of what’s going on with the Left, the general plunge into lawlessness is far worse for them than it is for the dissidents. The rules, as currently written, are designed to protect the Left. Antifa gets police protection at riots, because the cops know the dissidents would tear the spaghetti armed Antifa boys to shreds, if given the chance. Everywhere you look the system is rigged to protect the Left and make it difficult for dissidents to mount a challenge.

A big part of that is keeping middle-class whites thinking they have to follow the rules, because that’s who they are. By convincing white people that they have to scrupulously follow the rules, the Left maintains an institutional advantage. If whites come to think the rules are for suckers, because the game is rigged by their enemies, the Left loses its most important advantage. Put another way, if the cops decide they don’t have to follow orders and protect the left-wing rioters, we will see our final left-wing riot.

If the Left was really controlled by a super villain, as the talk radio type of conservative insists, they would not be promoting lawlessness. The people in charge always benefit the most from order. This is an iron law of life. That was obvious in communist countries, where the revolutionaries leaders quickly turned into stone-faced defenders of order once they assumed control. The radicalism of today is entirely self-defeating, as it a top-down assault on that which keeps the radicals in power. It’s suicidal.

One possible reason is Continental radicalism was always material in nature. The communists believed their system, if implemented, would result in plenty. Once in power, they needed order so they could figure out how to make their system work. Before long, order became an end in itself, as it provided plenty for the ruling party and insulated them from the masses. The Bolsheviks became an ugly, delusional version of that which they replaced. Their materialism ultimately made them into conservatives.

In America, radicalism has always been spiritual. The Puritan notions of salvation, coupled with an outsider’s hatred of the majority population, has made for a radicalism that can never be satisfied with control. The point of the march through the institutions was not simply to replace the WASP ruling class. It was to gain the high ground in a never ending war on the white majority. The war on whiteness is an all consuming reason to exist. If it takes destroying everything to get whitey, then our radical rulers will blow up the world.

Again, without whitey there’s no civilization, and with whitey there’s no Viva la revolución. The “left”, it seems, is willing to give up civilization. They have no idea what bringing electricity, sewer, water, gas, and all the accruements entails. Furthermore, they are unaware that it’s not only whitey that brings these delights to their front door, but it’s that evil of all evils, the white male that provides. They have to know at some level because they uproot from their hipster paradises with the quirky bars and walkable communities and move out to crackerville the moment their children are born.… Read more »

I shop at a big Sprouts health food grocery store. They have these grocery bags of food at checkout. They ask you if you want to buy a bag of food for our “local families in need”. If you do, they ring a loud bell and people around clap. I’m in SoCal. The bag of food is going to the brown side of town to feed illegal aliens and encourages more to come. Next time the cashier asks me I’m tempted to say, “Are they white?” Her: “Is what white, the bread?” Me: “No, the families.”

Frip: I ocassionally shop at Sprouts–mostly because the fruit at Trader Joe’s is aweful. The constant hectoring of shoppers at check-out to “Give to This” and “Give to That” is an annoyance and an imposition. At Walgreen’s shoppers are assured that a portion of their hard-earned dollar will go to vaccinate imporverished children (i.e., not your children). The managers “running” these retailers apparently never have to go shopping at their own stores.

Over the last eighteen months I have experimented living ‘sans’ credit card; I pay cash for everything, often working through my pocket for the correct change. I’ve noticed a rapid decline in requests for ‘special collections’, usually appended to credit or bank-card transactions. It’s like when you pay cash for stuff, the simple-minded girls working the cash registers see only the actual money, not some digital addition to your bill; they react to cash as a “flash of golden fire”; hand them a fifty – never mind a hundred – and they become tongue-tied and confused; it’s almost erotic.

The growth of Progressivism is a symptom of our decline. It exists largely because there is no antidote in society to cure this defect. As such, it will only grow worse over time. LEOs are now complicit in the destruction that Progressives cause rather than a remedy. As an example, the Spygate coverup is about to succeed and all the DOJ/FBI/CIA culprits will get a pass for numerous Class I felonies by persons in a position of trust.

When you compare the development of Chinese and Western civilizations, which have roughly equal parity with respect to pre-Science Age technology, political organization, cultural ambition, and philosophy, you see certain structural similarities and differences. For instance, in both cases there was the central reality of the Empire: the key weird difference was that the Roman Empire was based around a central sea with a peripheral land-mass on all sides, whereas the Chinese Empire was a solid land-mass with peripheral and not-very-important coasts.

The left went into damage control mode, claiming that Tucker was lying about the an-com mob trying to break in. They were especially triggered that the DC police referred to it as a “hate crime”.

Ancoms (anarcho-communists) what is colloquially referred to as Antifa (which should not be used) are mainly a reactive (QRF) group, rather than a “hunter-killer” group. In their own imaginations, they act as “community self-defense” against far-right demonstrations. On their own turf, they enjoy some sympathy from the elected District Attorneys, judges and potential jury nullification. These activities would attract more scrutiny in a rural conservative area. The federal DOJ is compromised, and cannot afford to appear “soft on the nazis”.

Their ability and willingness to engage in “search and destroy” is mostly limited to online doxxing. Otherwise they leave this to the better funded ADL and SPLC, that along with law enforcement can afford to recruit informants.

The real conspiracy is Not that the Left will *win* – what could that even mean? It is to damn more souls in the spiritual war for evil by creating the kind of society which encourages evil. Leftism is based on, and in pursuit of, net-evil – by means partly of pursuing (ever more partial) specific Goods (kindness, empathy, relief of suffering etc); and partly by encouraging a general atmosphere or envy, spite and fear. But the effect of Leftism goes beyond the self-identified Left. For example, materialism (positivism) absolutely dominates *all* mainstream public/ political discourse – such that life… Read more »

Mr. Charlton…thank you for your blog and thought provoking words. “The ultimate goal of the Global Establishment is spiritual harm”….is here now and growing the death march. By using wealth-power-lust-sadism to appeal to the appetites,etc…the walking evil create Distraction-Addiction-Destruction. The walking evil aren’t above dipping into the aforementioned distractions themselves, although some are like the drug kingpin who never partakes in his wares. From my vantage point this is rarely an “either/or”, often an “either/and” for the ultimate goal of the eating of one’s soul, soul cannibalism. I witnessed the night of the living dead first while working in downtown… Read more »

Modern elites tend to be suicidal. Rousseau spent most of his intellectual life being paid to tell nobles that they stuck and the nobles housed and paid him for the privilege. Of course, a few years later the french revolution happened and they all lost their heads and lifestyle.

He was so influential, Marie Antoinette had a log cabin behind Versailles to live out his back to nature lifestyle.

That’s because the nature of man is to struggle. They’re trying to bring struggle back into their lives. Otherwise it’s just a petty life of being mad at the masseuse because she arrive 15 minutes late.

These people aren’t confident of their power. That’s why they encourage chaos. They can’t just order Tucker Carlson arrested. The bad guys have, in a disorganized way, tremendous power, but people can still defy them openly and walk free. They couldn’t even dictate who got elected president in 2016. The NRA exists and collects dues. Millions of Americans own Nuclear Grade Militaristical Assault Clips complete with Shoulder Thing. And pickup trucks!

Within the law, they can’t do much about any of that, at least not right now.

Also, you can forgive them for thinking whitey will never wake up.

I would say that in some ways, “the Puritan notions of salvation” are what drives the Antifa rabble. Purtians believed in predestination, and they spent a great deal of time and energy in self evaluation, looking for signs of their predestined salvation. In much the same way, leftist losers and nobodies, with nothing more than useless college degree, a twitter account with 5 followers, and a total lack of intellectual capacity, use Antifa larping as a means of detecting signs of progressive salvation in their lives. This, of course, involves (self) hating whitey, celebrating diversity and mass immigration, and bashing… Read more »

I take the opposite opinion. The Puritans believed in limited salvation. It was up to God who was saved. The real busy bodies have always been the Methodists. Always trying to fine tune that perfect moral system that would save people.

Well, I certainly don’t hold myself up as an expert in comparative religion, but an internet search of “Puritan predestination” brings up countless pages about the Calvinist/Puritan views on predestination. So…whatever. On the question of self-examination for signs of salvation, the “predestinationists” (whoever they were) considered it a sin to manufacture signs of salvation, so I don’t want to confuse anyone with my above claim. What these Antifa jackasses are doing, were it translated to the context of the “predestinationists,” would be considered a sin. In the current context it is simply self righteousness and virtue signaling, and it shows… Read more »

Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and Brendan Behan are three of the foremost dramatists and legendary comedians/wits of the English-speaking past century. Their contributions to the English art of comedy are beyond compare. They all spent a substantial amount of their time living and working in England. If the British Isles were nuked tomorrow, and all evidence of the English language were to be destroyed with the exception of Wilde, Shaw, and Behan, you could reconstitute pretty much the entire English language, using only their work, in a matter of months. Not one of them was an Englishman. Goes to… Read more »

Joseph Conrad was a Pole, Vladimir Nabokov was a Russian, Jacques Barzun a Frenchman, Simon Leys aka Pierre Ryckmans a Belgian. Stretching the point – if only just – Eric Hoffer grew up in a German-speaking household, and spoke with a decided German accent his whole life – a kind of Lawrence Welk of American political philosophy. All wrote splendid, expressive English. As much as I’d miss Wilde and Shaw – Behan not so much – I’d prefer the works of the men listed above as a basis for recovering our lingo from the nuclear ashes. Somehow, comedies of manners… Read more »

I appreciate that the Zman probably gets more than his share of, shall we say, “enthusiastic” correspondence about the Illuminati and lizard people. But reading today’s column, I think he may be letting that color his thinking. Just yesterday we have a column that includes mention of the well organized, well funded election stealing taking place on multiple fronts. An operation involving parallel efforts of local operatives, the media, the national Democratic party, affiliated lawyers, etc, etc. Today we have a column that starts out by admonishing those who would think such things are the result of certain individuals and… Read more »

The “progressive narrative” isn’t even a narrative anymore. Narrative implies a story, a goal, an ‘Oz’.

Now it’s just “we rule, you obey”.

Pretty boring as narratives go. Still, you have to wonder if the Cold War was a pyrrhic victory; Khrushchev bragged “we will bury you”. As a Russian he was wrong; as a communist, well, he may still be right.

From Grand Hotel Abyss, a somewhat sympathetic account of the Frankfurt School, I learned that nearly all the founders grew up in well-off homes: their fathers were doctors, factory owners, etc. Guilt over that seemed to have been a major driving force.

I agree w the central conjecture here, that this is less centrally controlled by a Bond-like villain than run on emotions and instinct. I think it is more like a flock of birds or school of fish that move in coordinated ways but w/o a leader. How this happens is pretty fascinating, Im not sure anyone knows for sure

As for possible explanations, I think ‘biohistory’ and the ‘r/K selection’ proposals may be on to something.

Got to see the forest for the trees, Z. Yes, the left is spontaneously organized rather than hierarchical; opportunistic rather than conspiratorial. Right-wingers project their own preferences onto the left, just as left-wingers do to the right. But this type of organization does not equate to randomness. It is not the same as having no strategy. Islamism is organized the same way, and it has been very effective at achieving its goals. All it requires is fanatical devotion to an ideology and tolerance from the host society. The left seems amorphous if you try to drill down, but that’s not… Read more »

The White man, being human, has sinned, as has every other demographic group. He has oppressed the weak, as has every other demographic group. He has waged aggressive war and sold the conquered into slavery, as has every other demographic group. We are deeply flawed, as is every other demographic group. But that’s where the similarities end. What the other demographic groups have not done is invent the rule of law, individual rights and universal suffrage; vaccines, antibiotics and anesthesia; indoor plumbing and electricity on demand; planes, trains and automobiles; the printing press, telegraph, telephone, radio, phonograph, copiers, computers and… Read more »

The case has been made that white man is “evil” precisely because of his ingenuity; his relentless energy and progressive urge has reshaped the world in a way that is unnatural. White man gives us nation states in continents like Africa where the ‘nation-state’ is incomprehensible to tribal peoples; White man gives us medicines that disrupt the natural cycle of life in primitive societies, where the life expectancy is 35, yielding chaos in time-hewn social structures; White man builds nuclear reactors – and nuclear-tipped ICBMs – in total disregard of the opinions, thoughts and emotions of ‘lesser breeds without the… Read more »

Woke: Trump is our Gorbachev – a pragmatist who tried to save a dysfunctional, sclerotic, doomed system with a package of reforms that were ultimately too little, too late.

Here’s a thought experiment: like Gorbachev, Trump has made continual concessions to his enemies (the Republicans, and those they actually represent), for which he has been provided nothing in return. At the end of their incompetent rules, their peoples’ suffering massively worsened, as a collapse into a long state of chaos, of horrendous poverty, violence, misery, unchecked oligarchic looting, et al resulted. They both evidently had a similar valuation of walls. The one tore down a wall that had protected Eastern Europe from the West’s positively deadly late-stage individualist democratic-capitalist mind-virus (which has kept East Europe relatively healthy to this… Read more »

Hmm, I wonder what kind of “outsider’s hatred” (((Zimmermann))) is talking about here 😂😂😂.

But anyway, it doesn’t matter, does it, (((Zimmermann)))? The problem is not the Jews, it’s Leftwing Jews, right? After all, unlike Muslims, Blacks or Gypsies, Jews should never be trashed collectivelly, specially in racial/ethnic terms and even more specially when you’re a crypto Jew pretending to be White, right (((Zimmermann)))? 😂😂😂

The communists have been active in this nation from the 1920s. I’d argue that their ancestors were active in New England in the 1850s, seeking to create a earthy paradise that required a strong central government. Make no mistake, a war is approaching rapidly. We no longer have shared values. We no longer speak the same language. The social fabric has been destroyed so we see girls in men’s rooms, women killing their children and state sponsored discrimination. We are told that queers are worthy of respect. We are told to embrace them, and transgenders, and the 89 other genders.… Read more »

A couple of points backing up your main theme about the disparate elements of radicalism. In ‘To the Finland Station’ Edmund Wilson engages in literary criticism of a sort of the older histories of the French Revolution that would have been available to Lenin. He makes note of Hippolyte Taine’s determinism having an effect on him searching for a primary mover of the revolution causing him to search for and find conspiracies that may not have been there. Another would have to do with the idea that residua of Puritanism helps drive radicalism. Turns out some of the most radical… Read more »

A mild observation of the 2 revolution rule —
* The first revolution sweeps away the old order, by chaos.
* The second revolution installs the new order, by consolidation.

The street thugs that ushered the first are deemed too troublesome to keep around by the second, excepting a small cadre to do wet work as needed. Even the US did not escape that rule, Revolutionary war was the first, construction and ratification of the USC was the second.

I have to disagree with one aspect of this analysis. The relatively few people in power are funding the Leftists, in the expectation that THEY will be left strictly alone to pursue their financial aims. Facebook and the other social media giants, along with Google and the information-gathering entities, are siding with the AntiFa with the idea that the Leftists will leave their enterprises alone – for now. It’s about milking the system for some protected money/wealth, and keeping alternative escape destinations for the inevitable end-game. It’s a holding action. If it lasts, well, expect the AntiFa to be slapped… Read more »

Please explain Soros. You are suggesting what he is not but I don’t know how you know that. The simplest explanation is that he is funding the radicalism because he stands to gain from it. Maybe he delights in the chaos he is causing. Maybe he is an ideologues who wants to hasten a new type of society. Why don’t you think he is a super villain? Your only argument t is that elites love order?
