Travelogue: Journey’s End

My journey home started at the Helsinki airport. I drove from Turku to catch a noon flight, so I left several hours for the usual nonsense at the airport. I had plenty of time as the process of going through security and passport control was fast and efficient. It’s not like the Finns take a bunch of shortcuts. It’s just that the Finns are smart and sensible, so the people staffing the various posts at the airport are smarter than you’re going to find at an American airport. There is a lightness to it that you don’t see in America.

I had read Ed Dutton’s latest book on the flight over and it occurred to me that a good example of his thesis is the airport comparison. The very basic argument he is making is that the West is getting dumber due to selection pressure working against the traits we associate with general intelligence. As a result, the West is getting less capable. If this process is not arrested, collapse is inevitable. We will not have enough smart people to run the systems of the West, so we will retreat into less complex societies.

The Helsinki airport runs like other airports, but it is run by a people with an average IQ over 100. The Baltimore airport, in contrast, uses the same systems, but it is run by people with an 85-IQ. Now, in fairness, the typical Finn is not working security at their airport, so the average IQ of the staff is certainly below the national average. On the other hand, the management layer at the Helsinki airport is probably a full SD smarter than what you’ll find at a typical American airport, with lots of diversity hires at every level.

In other words, the Helsinki airport is like 1950’s America when all of the important positions were manned by people from the majority population and that majority population was smarter than today. Meanwhile, the BWI airport is future America, maybe not too distant future America, where the important positions are staffed by a hodgepodge of whoever washed up here, managed by a significantly dumber white population, with the help of loads of diversity. The future of the West is the TSA on a bad day…

Leaving Russia by train, you pass through a town called Vyborg. It is an old city, probably founded in the 11th century, but no one knows. It has changed hands many times over the centuries. The Finns, Swedes and Russians have taken turns controlling it. Today it belongs to the Russians and is a craphole. The population has rocket high drug and alcohol abuse, along with the social dysfunction to go with it. The point is the same problems ailing the West are showing up in even the remote parts of the world…

On the train from Helsinki to St. Petersburg, a Finnish passenger pointed out the window at an old dilapidated building just outside the city. He said, “That’s where they held Finns who were being sent to Siberia.” By “they” he meant the Bolsheviks. You get the sense that there remains a strong underlying suspicion and hatred of the Russians….

Watching Russian TV, I saw ads for Kazakhstan. They were hilarious. It was like Borat was hired by their chamber of commerce to create the ads…

Riding the train between Finland and Russia, you get to see the border control of both counties in close comparison. The Finns are professional and clearly trained to evaluate each passenger based on their experience. The Russians are just following a procedure, without putting a ton of thought into it. More important, the Russians operate under much tighter rules. Their superiors don’t trust them to do too much thinking on their own, so they have a rule for every condition. Low trust societies need lots of rules…

The collapse of the Russian collusion myth was hilarious, but the aftermath concealed the real damage that has been done. The Europeans follow the lead of the American media, which means they now have the Russian collusion virus. I saw this show on the BBC, which is supposedly about how the Russians secretly influence European elections through control of dissident politics. It’s every bit as nuts as the Russian collusion nonsense and every bit as damaging to the political culture of the continent…

The scars of socialism can still be seen outside Saint Petersburg. The run down housing blocks and abandoned concrete buildings are a reminder of the failure of greatest and most monstrous social engineering experiments in history. Mixed in with those ugly reminders of the past, there are new housing blocks that look like they are built by people, rather than prison guards. There are even housing tracts that are rather stylish, like an eastern version of an American suburb. Russia is still poor, but it is getting better…

I had the pleasure of spending time with Ed Dutton. He is even more eccentric in real life than you see in his video. He is also razor sharp and very witty. He translated a Finnish speech for me in real time, which was like having Rowan Atkinson explain a speech by elves to the denizens of Middle Earth. Of course, we both had been drinking, so that certainly had something to do with it. You learn a lot about an Englishmen after he has had a few drinks. We are very lucky to have Ed Dutton on our team…

The one thing Europeans struggle understanding is what it is like to live in a city like Baltimore. I was chatting with some people, trying to explain to them how Baltimore can have a crime rate 200 times higher than Finland. They were baffled as to why blacks shoot one another over sneakers. I felt like Rutger Hauer at the end of Blade Runner. “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Patrol cars on fire off the shoulder of North Avenue. I watched hoppers glitter in the dark near the Hampsterdam Gate…..”

I’ve always been skeptical of the global white nationalist movement, for the simple reason that what ultimately has defined the West is competition between people. The Chinese are smart, smarter than Europeans, but they could not make the great leap out of the Malthusian trap that happened in Europe. The reason is the Han came to dominate their region long ago, so they put their smarts to work concentrating their domain. The Europeans used their smarts competing against one another to dominate Europe.

You see the residue of the competition everywhere you go in Europe, even in the Nordic countries, which are very close ethnically and culturally. There can be cooperation on a range of interests, but ultimately, that cooperation has to be based on ethnic nationalism, not racial solidarity. The Finns have to want to keep their own lands, before they can cooperate with Italians, who want not keep their own lands. Europeans need to love themselves again, before they can come together to defend Europe…

I’ve said for a long time now that whites are about to undergo one of the great evolutionary squeezes in history. If whites are around in 200 years (and I think we will be), it’ll be a very different group. The tribalism that was bred out of so many of us over 1,000 years will be back. Non-tribal whites will disappear either through miscegenation or not producing children.

Either way, our altruistic, virtue-signalling white neighbors and family members will not have white descendants.

Member

Astute comment! The very traits that enabled European and European-origin countries to achieve greatness now contribute to their downfall when applied to clannish, tribalistic outsiders. Surviving white descendants, if they exist at all, will have racial attitudes that will shock present day whites.

Losing our clannish ways and trusting non-relatives allowed NW Europeans to form much larger entities whether they be disciplined armies or business organizations. It also made us smarter. That combination allowed us to conquer the world. Tribal groups and less trusting societies didn’t stand a chance, especially once the industrial revolution got rolling. But times change. What were once strengths have become weakness. Nature is one cruel bitch. She doesn’t tolerate weakness. It will be bred out one way or the other. Altruistic, virtue-singling whites are a genetic dead-end. The whites that remain will need to be more than just… Read more »

If I say that English will be a dead language in a few hundred years most people would be shocked and disagree vehemently. And yet Latin is effectively a dead language and those people would have been just as surprised to hear that prediction.

We all like to think that we can direct things. We like to think we are the great men of history wrestling it in this or that direction. That isn’t true. White identity in Europe is inevitable because Europe is America a couple generations ago. Western European nations are on track to have no dominant ethnicity by mid century. While, yes, a large chunk of that will be African and Muslims invaders, the schengen area has worked. Brits will be a minority but whites will still be a large percentage of the UK.

To most of the Western professional class, that forms our opinion-makers, they don’t have an identity deeper than liberalism. Most populist movements promote a “national liberalism” that only made sense in a 19th century context of liberal Britain versus reactionary Habsburg.

Challenging the liberal system has to go farther than voting politicians out, it means voting out priests, professors, businessmen and consumerism. The left tells us that “representation matters”. The Right must take its representation. Our land. Our People.

I once spoke to an Australian guy who had worked in Stockholm back in the eighties, when there was a Russian submarine scare. At one point after work hours, three of his colleagues had discussed the possibility of building a Swedish nuke.

“But who would you nuke?” he asked, a bit daftly.

The Swedes gave him a stone sober stare. “Copenhagen”, they replied as one.

The good thing about the mainstream system selecting only for loyalty and just trying to meet identity quotas is that the rebellion gets all of the really smart people. Really stop to think about the human capital difference between someone our rulers deem good (Ta-Nehisi Coates) and someone they kick out of the mainstream (John Derbyshire). No amount of resources can compensate for their fundamental deficiencies.

I am used to going on line and fixing things myself.

The idea of White Nationalism doesn’t travel well. The men in the old American White Movement came up with the concept in order to address the situation in the United States, where traditional ethnic influences and family lines are vestigial or non existent. Those who, by luck or design, have maintained their biological ethnicity for a few generations in North America will find out in a hurry that they aren’t considered to be Polish or whatever if they ever return to the Home Country. That’s true with Anglo Americans returning to England, where there is no real language barrier.

Fundamentally I think we’ll end up going back to localism.

We’re too mixed up.

Vox Day makes the same point about ethnic nationalism in Europe, that it precludes White Nationalism. However, in the US ethnic identity is weak among Whites, and Whites as a whole are under attack by leftist radicals. The radicals do not distinguish Italians from Finns. That combination makes White Nationalism possible in the US.

Sometimes an identity can be imposed on disparate groups by an outsider who sees them all as the same.

While I acknowledge that broad white ethnocentrism is weak, I find hope in the broad ethnocentrism among hispanics and blacks. They have similar internal ethnic divisions to whites. However, they are bound together by the feeling that they are oppressed by whites and this gives them a group identity.

Similarly, when whites discover they are hated because they are white, not because they are Dutch or Italian, I hope that this will nurture a broad white ethnocentrism.

As is the case with the UK, many have realized the UK government is not about “the people” but protecting banks and corporations to whatever ends. It’s why so many have left the UK for other destinations.

Yet I went shopping to a Tesco superstore (like Walmart) in northern England today and saw one non white amongst the hundreds of shoppers, fine flee London but England is ours you can’t fight from abroad.

“…in northern England…”

How nice for “northern England”. But it’s only a matter of time before the “vibrancy” reaches that area.

Interesting observations. But while we’re on the topic of “selection pressures” who wants to open the monogamy can of worms? The Booby does, that’s who. Pack and herd animals do not typically practice monogamy. Males have the greatest diversity and divergences in intelligence, ability, and adaptability. Stats show males dominating both the high and low ends of the bell curve, while females bunch up in the mediocre middle. A lot of males are born to be cannon fodder, or to be thrown into the meat-grinder, not to reproduce. Encouraging each of the low functioning males to find a wife and… Read more »

The truth of the matter is that we subsidize the low functioning. So not only are we making it easier for the low functioning to reproduce – we’re dumping the burden of supporting them onto the high functioning and therefore making it that much harder for them to reproduce. Take away the goddam subsidies (welfare in ALL of it’s forms) – that’s what I’ve been saying for decades now. Then you’ll have a true picture of the lay of the land. If you’re going to advocate continuing all the damn socialist subsidizing of the stoopid – and layer on top… Read more »

Remove welfare and a whole host of problems “go away”. Welfare was a concept of White Europeans, and could only work among themselves, i.e., a high trust society with similar social/cultural values. It was extended to the main minority population, Blacks, as a form of Danegeld, but the line could not hold against the influx of other non-white minorities not sharing the majority population’s values and abilities. But I’m preaching to the choir here.

Every complex society has some welfare. Such systems were ubiquitous in the Middle Ages and that was a time in which there was work for almost everyone at some point This happens simply because of economies of scale, efficiency and over population. Machines make wages lower faster than they can make prices lower Now if you don’t mind epidemic disease, famine constant lawlessness and banditry along with a teeming mass of people willing to throw in with whichever elite is willing to feed them, be my guest and get rid of welfare Your best case scenario of no welfare is… Read more »

A work buddy shared a story about his friend who did a sailing trip with 3 women as crew. A man’s dream? No….a nightmare. Said he’d never do that again as the women created high Russian grand drama cat fight all the way home. You’ll need a strong hierarchy and a first wife to keep order.

Common ground. Yes, it would be preferable if we could persuade others to see with clear eyes the consequences of our current slide into cultural suicide. In theory, this awakening could lead to political change and redirection toward sane public policies. A lot less pain if this scenario plays out; but then, what if it doesn’t? Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Odds are we are headed for a colony collapse at an accelerating pace. History says cruel tyranny will follow. Either way, the sane among us should focus on being smart, strong, robust, and capable. Survival is… Read more »

Building communities is never a bad idea. Let’s assume that we continue on this multi-culti path to a Brazil-like finish, i.e. no colony collapse, no civil war, no partition, just crappiness.

Those communities will still be useful for your white group in general and will have given you in particular connections and relationships that make life worth living. And that’s the scenario where those communities are least useful.

Or it could become South Africa where the whites are facing the very real prospect of extermination. Also, during the 1930s, the Jews and Gypsies remained tight knit communities right up to the gates of the concentration camps. There is no safety in numbers when a tyranny gets up to full steam.

Well, no one can protect a group that doesn’t fight back. At the moment, that’s us. We’ll see if we ever grow a pair. We can’t say that history didn’t warn us.

I’m in danger of being taxed to death, not genocided Also the Dissident Right is a Coffee Klatch or group of grognards far more than plucky revolutionaries .

You know what they say; the jews who were pessimists got the hell out of Dodge; those who were optimists wound up walking into a death camp.
As for the white’s in South Africa they are in the same situation as were the jews in Hitler’s Germany or White Russians in Bolshevik Russia.

I’ve said this before about dutton’s thesis, but I do not think Americans are getting drastically dummer than earlier generations. I’ll admit that there probably is an iq decrement, but it’s small and most likely due to ingression of bad genes than to thermodynamic decay in the absence of selection pressure. American functionality is going down due to expansion of immigration and mixing of bloodlines, but I think most importantly a decay of standards. I think education is being sabotaged to make low iq groups appear “equal” and to encourage race mixing. There are still good educations to be had… Read more »

Man that blade runner analogy is so on the money . In my experience, the most pozzed people in the world are whites who live completely removed from real world enrichment .
they soak in the propaganda and have no real world experience to counter it . travel to Oregon or northern Michigan and they have no concept of the realities of urban life. They honestly believe that we just all need to be nice (unspoken: like them ) and everything will be just fine. It is especially bad in upper middle class suburbs .

People are very generous about “migrants” and “socialism” when other people have to pick up the economic and cultural tab, and not them.

“Europeans need to love themselves again, before they can come together to defend Europe…” I disagree. It’s not love we need, it’s forgiveness. Like Germany, every Western nation has a list of historical crimes against humanity. But we must defend the fact that our generation and our children’s generation, are not responsible for the actions of our Nation’s past. I know no German of my generation who ordered a Jew into a concentration camp, just as your American readers have never owned a slave. We, and all Western Nations, must stand together and say, “We do not accept the guilt… Read more »

Fact or Conspiracy: QANON has not posted anything during the period that ZMan has been indisposed with his travel. It just struck me today. However, QANON does have some long lapses between posts. Just an odd thought.

White Americans need to start building a sense of group solidarity by helping one another in a daily basis and in time of need. After a crisis white men always voluntarily come to the rescue helping anyone who needs it. That needs to stop. Somehow Whites need to first help Whites as every other group first helps its own.

Unfortunately, most whites love to hate other Whites and this includes the dissident right.
