Travelogue: The Journey Home

I had an early flight out of Copenhagen back to Lagos, so I did the sensible thing and went out with the conference goers until the early hours. I had enough time to take an early morning walk, then pack up my kit and head for the airport. That meant I was working on about four hours sleep over two days, so I would sleep like a baby on the plane. When you do enough traveling, you learn what works best for you. On an ocean crossing, I want to be comatose for as much of the flight as possible.

The first leg of the trip took me to Brussels for a connection. I had never been in that airport, but my few hours there taught me why the EU is hopeless. For starters, I had to go through passport control, which makes no sense. Apparently, they cannot tell who is entering from an EU nation and who is not, so everyone is treated as a foreign nation entering the EU for the first time. It was not a long line and passport control is always the fastest part of the travel process, unless you have something to declare.

After a mile of walking I get to the gate and I have to present my passport and boarding pass again. Then I do this again. Then another time. Three times in the same line with three officials standing next to one another. Then I’m told I have to go to another person, who checks my passport and boarding pass. I’m up to four government officials within a ten foot square, who have demanded to see my papers. This happens four more times before I can get on the plane to Montreal.

Things did not get better once on the plane. I was in a window seat and my traveling partner was a particularly pungent African. Let’s call him Mr. Bongo. Now, Mr. Bongo smelled like a dumpster on a very hot day. Most likely, if he was outside, he would have had a swarm of circling around him. On the other hand, his funk was so powerful even flies would have to think twice before getting too close. The other people seated around us had something over their face in an effort to avoid the funk.

This is why I prefer to be comatose on these long flights over the ocean. It is a part of travel now, at least around the US. We have a lot of South Asians, who are not big on daily bathing. There’s usually one on the plane, so be prepared for it. On one trip, I saw one so ripe that the flight crew hung an air freshener on the seat backs. That trip was three hours of knowing what it was like to be around bears doing their business in a pine forest. Nowhere is diversity so personal as on an air plane.

At some point, Mr. Bongo started to have some sort of trouble with the seat in front of him or maybe it was the tray, I don’t know. That seemed to be the focus as they talked with him in French and he responded in some other language. He may not have been African, as it sounded like creole he was speaking, but I was still a little out of it, so I can’t be sure. That turned into a skirmish with the crew. They calmed him down and I went back to sleep, after getting a nose full of summer dumpster.

I’ve seen this before on these flights. Africans seem to struggle with flying. Last spring I saw an African flip out on the plane over his seat back tray. He started attacking the back of the chair, which had someone sitting in it, so it was quite a scene. In both cases, I was reminded of the fact that mentally disabled people will often throw tantrums when confused or frustrated. Taking Neolithic people and putting them into modern situations is a challenge under the best of conditions. Airplanes are not the best conditions.

Of course, living in Lagos, I’ve seen firsthand when first world infrastructure is handed off to primitive people. The same thing that happened in Africa after colonialism will start happening all over the West. Many of these people can serve in various roles in the system, but they have no idea why those roles exist. They lack the capacity to know and they lack the capacity to operate these items that have evolved in advanced western societies. From their perspective, this stuff is magic.

We see this in our daily lives. Some men can take over a division and run it well, but it takes special talent to build the division from the ground up. That solid manager is unable to develop the policies and procedures, but he can execute them. Someone with vision and talent had to create the rules and define the roles to match the available talent. That’s how societies work as well. Our institutions can be run by average men, but they always need talented men to step in when it is time to adapt.

Dozing in the miasma of Mr. Bongo’s personal funk, I started to think about those people living in the Roman Empire wondering why the water no longer comes from the big stone thingy anymore. Some may have remembered their ancestors working on them for some reason, but they no longer recall why. The people who knew how and why those aqueducts worked were long gone. No one was around who could figure out how to make them work again, because they lacked the capacity to do it.

I got into Montreal looking forward to some lunch. I had a good long nap and my olfactory receptors were cleansed of Mr. Bong’s stink, by the waves of perfume from the shopping area passengers are now forced to endure at airports. Everyone is forced through a shopping zone now, as they want to make sure you are always ready to consume next product. As a result, airports now smell like the dressing room of a strip club, but it beat the smell of Mr. Bongo, so I was thankful for that miracle.

Normally, when you connect on an international trip, you just walk to the next gate and maybe you have to go through passport control. In Montreal, I had to go through customs, then security and then passport control again. It was a slow mess, but my plane was delayed so it did not matter. Montreal airport is cleaner than Toronto, with no Sikhs. French Canadians have a chip on their shoulder about speaking French, but I find their obstinacy admirable. Good for them..

I finally made it back to Lagos with a collection of great memories of a wonderful time with friends in the European scene. Frodi is a great host and wonderful person. I’m thankful for having got to know him and now count him as a friend. The same is true of so many familiar faces I saw this time, people I have met at other events. To play a public role in dissident politics in this age means having readers and listeners all over the West, not just your home country. Special thanks to those I met this week.

Brussels has lots of connecting passengers to sub-saharan Africa. It doesn’t matter which city in North America you fly from Brussels flights always have a lot of Africans. And yes, I’ve also noticed lots of disputes involving these passengers with each other and the crew. The one time I flew between Copenhagen and Toronto it was the least diverse flight I’d been on in years crossing the Atlantic.

I was in the Drive-Thru of the bank the other day doing my business and in the car next to me was a black woman in the backseat yelling at the bank teller to use some photocopy ID as her ID. Of course they didn’t. She kept explaining that it was just as good as a driver’s license. They’re very loud so I can hear her.

Yeah, this goes back to “the tax” you’ve articulated so well. When the <85-IQ folk are a relatively low proportion the tax is a manageable annoyance, and we're even sometimes motivated to offer charity and forbearance. But there's a threshold of unsustainability on tax increases, and as our population of "special-needs" people grow – and as they shrilly demand "rights" that aren't rights at all – then we're driven to the edge of that threshold. Away with this politically correct language – we need to get back to calling stupid people STUPID – unashamedly and out loud.

On a more banal note…when I am forced to make one of those treks to the local Costco, always pick the line with the least vibrancy, even if not the shortest. Otherwise you end up trapped behind the endless delays stemming from the inability to unload goods and organize them, five people in a pack that want to check the goods in a single cart separately with separate EBT checkouts tossed in. And if there is any problem with anything will engage in endless arguments with the poor cashier.

This morning I had to return something to the grocery store. A quick stop en route to the gym, I thought. I hadn’t figured on the Dominican trying to wire US$ “home” and the Negress who couldn’t get the machine to work. And as the line grew and grew, I was the only one who was so bold as to tell the Negress to call a manager. Nothing is ever simple anymore. Diversity complicates and slows every process . I compensated by playing Sabaton’s Bismarck repeatedly while working out.

I was in transit in Brussels airport in 2017 between Rome and Copenhagen for 3.hours. The airport was full of military and police patrols. My luggage was within the airport so i was walking around within it for some hour. That made me a suspect to them and i had show my passport and tickets 3.times. When I came back I could see that there had been a major terror attack in the same area I had walked around in 2016 with 35.deaths and 340 injuries.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Brussels_bombings

I had to travel a few weeks after 9-11when they were “randomly” pulling people out of the airplane boarding line for additional security screening. In practice this meant grabbing 3 white people so they could talk to the one suspicious looking vibrant individual. Of course there were no real suspicious looking people taking air travel immediately after 9-11, but the security theater had to be maintained. Anyhow, I had 4 flights in one day connecting through O’Hare. Wearing a suit and with frequent flyer upgrade I was the natural mark to avoid charges of racism. On 3 flights I was… Read more »

I have not flown since and refuse to fly for any reason. F-k GW Bush and f-k the airlines. The next flight I take will be when/if I leave the former America for the last time.

More than a little off-topic… Got me to wondering about the transition after Rome, in the west, how much of the cultural loss was related to the shattering of the economy after the Med became an Islamic lake and how much was related to the inability of the central government to impose its will on places like Francia and Spain. This would be a significant case where the biology was very much right, but everything else was wrong. Or was it?

When Egypt fell to the Muslims, the West lost it’s supply of Papyrus which was the source of paper used back then. Even if the Franks and other barbarian tribes wanted to write down anything they couldn’t. Most didn’t care though. It took those barbarians 1400 years before they developed indoor plumbing the Romans had, same with central heating, etc. Our ancestors were a really stupid and violent bunch. With the loss of North Africa to the Muslims, North Africa went from being a bread basket of Rome to a barren desert once again as the Muzzies had no idea… Read more »

Most Romans didn’t have their own indoor plumbing. They had central bathhouses they all shared. Entire rooms for men to sit and shit next to each other. Did you know they shared sponges for wiping their ass? That’s hardly the epitome of civilization.

It wasn’t until an Englishman in 1775 invented a flush toilet with an “S” shaped pipe (to prevent smells from back-wafting) that indoor plumbing became tolerable on any large scale.

To be fair, when the Romans left Britain, and it all fell back to local rule, old Roman villas with heated, mosaic floors were quickly turned into animal stalls. If you ever visit Housesteads Roman Fort at Hadrian’s Wall, you’ll discover the Romans were ordering beautiful fine pottery from France because the locals were incapable of producing it. There are dozens of letters that have been found where Romans stationed there were desperate for high quality goods from the Continent simply because the locals were just still figuring out fire.

A few years back there was a meme called “what it’s like being black in Asia”. There were a few variations, but the main theme was always a selfie of some African person on the train surrounded by Korean (makes it even funnier because Korea smells weird and everyone smells like kimchi) or Japanese people holding their noses. Not a lie, even the Indians who unfortunately reside in Japan tend to use copious amounts of body spray.

At one time I thought about doing some European travel but it sounds too depressing to even consider today. Seeing the great cities of Europe overrun by low IQ ingrates is not my idea of fun. When these people hit critical mass, it is going to get ugly. Spending some time in Haiti was very educational. As a people they are completely helpless. We go in and try to fix stuff, then leave and in short order what little semblance of civilization collapses. It is Detroit without white suburbs.

If you want white Europe they way it used to be you’ll need to head to Poland, Czech or Hungary. The beer’s great, and the pierogi are excellent. In Poland, the housing and buildings are a bit dull, brutish and old school east bloc, but they’re really friendly and love Americans. Prague is wonderful and like Budapest they were not obliterated during the war. In fact, most 16th century period movies like “Amadeus” are filmed in these locations because they have preserved their historical buildings. And like Portugal, they’re still relatively cheap too.
