The Growing Darkness

The term “dark age” came into popular usage among intellectuals during the 18th century, but the term itself was actually coined by Petrarch. He was an early Italian Renaissance scholar in the 14th century. It was originally used to describe a certain period of time, but eventually became synonymous with the period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the Renaissance. The assumed lack of human progress, due to the lack of records and demographic decline, was a dark time for humanity.

The term began to fall out of usage as scholars gained a better understanding of the middle ages. The period described as dark, in terms of human accomplishment began to recede, eventually covering just the period immediately after Rome. Eventually the term fell out of fashion altogether, first because it was not terribly accurate and then because the usual suspects got involved. The image of dark versus light was seen as problematic, so now using the term is a microaggression.

That’s a good point to wonder if the West has not already entered a new dark age, in which superstition rules over rationality. The concept of the microaggression is something superstitious people living in a dark age would have understood. After all, a microaggression is the idea that certain words and phrases, incantations, will cause a miasma to develop around the people saying and hearing the words. This miasma or evil spirit will cause those exposed to react involuntarily and uncontrollably.

In fact, everything about political correctness and multiculturalism relies on oogily-boogily that people in the dark age of Europe would have found ridiculous. The people of Europe in the middle ages may not have had a sophisticated understanding of the natural world, but they did not think the dirt had magical qualities. Magic Dirt Theory would have struck them as laughably ridiculous. They may not have understood cognitive science, but they knew the apple does not fall far from the tree.

This twitter thread from last month is a useful example. It is primitive howling at the moon, but the source is someone claiming to be a scientist. Granted, anthropology is now just a dumping ground for girls, who could not find a husband, but the fact that such a thing exists in a college campus suggests a shadow is now hanging over at least part of the West. If you look at the twitter profile of that person, you’ll note she has her pronouns listed. These are the talismans of the modern academy.

Mx. Townsend is not some isolated example. She is a milder form of what is becoming quite common in academia. Cordelia Fine wrote a whole book denying that there are two sexes or even that sexes exist. She was carried around from campus to campus, celebrated as a great thinker. Her book is complete nonsense. It is now a race to see who can most completely deny observable reality about humans, in order to please some undefined spirits that will usher us into the age of equality.

It’s tempting to dismiss the madness we see in academia as trivial or temporary, but this has been going on for several generations now. Stephen J. Gould, for example, spent his life trying to shrink the stock of human knowledge. While his motivations can be debated, his purpose was not. This deliberate effort to pull down the shades and plunge the intellectual space into darkness has been going on for generations. We are just now seeing the shadows creep across the college campus.

A dark age is always imagined to be a period when the stock of human knowledge stagnates or even declines. Another way to think of a dark age is one in which the people are unable to manage the complexity bequeathed to them. As a result, society goes through a period of retrenchment. It devolves into something simpler that can be managed by the available human capital. A dark age is one in which the people rebuild the floor of their society, so future generations can build on it

Somewhere in the last century or maybe the prior century, people in the West began to lose the ability to control their institutions. By control, it should be understood to mean the knowledge of how they work and why they were created. It is one thing to know how to use the toilet. It is another thing to understand public sanitation and the reason it is a vital public service. People in the West no longer seem to know why their institutions exist or how they must be maintained in order to properly function.

That’s why the college campus is a good place to examine, when thinking about the crisis in the West. In theory, the people running the society of tomorrow are now being trained on the colleges of today. Yet, they are being taught things that are laughably false by people who are often suffering from mental illness. In other cases, they are taught by people who hate them and hate the West. A people who understood why these institutions were created would never have permitted this to happen.

There is another aspect of the term dark age. We often use it to describe a time when it is unacceptable to be curious about things. Everyone is forced into a conformity of thought and belief. It is associated with primitive superstition. Of course, the usual suspects always apply this to whites and Christians. Within living memory, they would portray Christians as closed-minded bigots, who were obsessed with stifling curiosity and free expression. The victims were always the usual suspects.

That’s just another part of the blood libel against the Occident and it is this blood libel that is steering the West into a dark age. In a frenzy to eradicate all that is white, they are stamping out what it means to be white. Since curiosity about the natural world is an implicitly Western trait, enforced conformity around a body of anti-knowledge is seen as the solution to whiteness. In this context, the dark age is not the result of a natural process or an accident of history, but the goal of the people who rule over us.

At the pinnacle of western achievement in the mid twentieth century much science fiction of the low brow type showed many times the future as a collapsed and retrograde world. You know all this ancient knowledge still existing in libraries and in broken institutions but lost on it’s current inhabitants. Even Huxley and H.G. Wells types were predicting it.

From her tweets:

Not sure the Nordic and Teutonic races were that closely related to the Celts. The Celts were hanging around Western Europe before Rome was founded. The Nordics and Germanic tribes were in far northeast Europe at that time. Some moved west while some went down into northern India.

Different tribes perhaps but I don’t think the idea of race applies to Dutch V British. The Mayflower Puritans are called British but most of them hung out in exile in Netherlands before returning to Plymouth. William of Orange, was, well, from Orange. My idea of a different race is that you would be noticed a mile down the road. When you blend in seamlessly except for the weird accent, the race argument is bunk.

The battle for the university was lost in the late 70s. The F-Furt school had had a generation to infiltrate and alter by then. Many departments were already under their thumb. All they had to do was continue to administer the poison a bit at a time without setting off alarm bells.

It is now by far the most anti-white of our institutions. Gatekeeping committees go out if their way to fill student and faculty positions with anyone but a hetero white male.

Leftist B.S. is absolutely based in class warfare. Unfortunately, you’re not going to convince upper middle-class “rightists” on that score.

They have their financial “wall.” The price of real estate in SoCal’s Laguna Hills-Aliso Viejo-Lake Forest axis, for example, provides the upper middle-class with protections the lower class whites lack. Add a dash of AA diversity in the neighborhood and local church and there’s plenty of fuel for virtue signaling. They all know the same nice Negro.

Whites have been on top for 500 years. That’s a very long time, certainly long enough to forget what it took to get to the top and stay there. What’s happening now is a natural cycle. We just happen to be around for the decline phase.

The only question is whether the future looks like the fall of Rome, where various white groups started over to build a new world, or Rhodesia (and currently South Africa), where whites are either exterminated or driven to such small numbers that they no longer can fight back.

A chemist PhD. named Johann Gottfried who was an M.D. and had also been granted an honorary doctorate would be “Herr Doktor Doktor Doktor Gottfried.” Mostly just in correspondence, though. Zum Beispiel, “Sehr Geehrter Herr Doktor Doktor Doktor Gottfried.” Was zum Teufel! Some people still say, Herr Magister to me even though I only have my MA.

I for one appreciate more and more the formality I learned in Germany. I can’t tell you how annoying it is becoming at my age to have bank tellers call me by my first name or check out personnel call me “sweetheart”or “honey” in the cashier’s line. Although I do confess to finding such familiarity very alluring from fifty-something, gravelly voiced, bar maids. Nothing sexier than a worldly women at my age. 😉

Heh. Online registration for scientific conferences usually requires one to select one’s salutation from among: Mr/Ms/Dr which is reasonable I suppose (though I’m personally not a fan of people who insist on being called “doctor” outside of their specific professional role).

Anyway, editoralizing aside, a recent conference had the following bewildering array of choices (in order listed): Mr/Ms/Associate Dean/Col/Cpt/Dean/Dr/Gen/Hon/Judge/Lady/Lord/Lt/LTC/Miss/Mrs/Professor/Rev/Sgt. Note well this was NOT a military-oriented conference.

In a former life, one of the senior engineers made of point of always being called doctor so-and-so because he had a PhD in engineering. In a meeting I asked him, “So, how many patients lives have you saved as a doctor”. He said “I’m not that kind of doctor” to which I replied, “Exactly!”

Try that in an American University and see what happens outside of the Med School. My major professor used to rip his PhD students (post doc) a new one whenever they put on such “airs”.

It also is not in line with the newspaper style manual which states only MD’s are commonly ref’d to as “Doctor” in news articles. If you are referenced as “Doctor”, you’ll immediately have PhD ref’d as a qualifier.

OK – correction to my last: The flawed worldview isn’t that man is necessarily good, but that he’s inherently perfectible, or that the “right” environment can mold him into an eminently fine being.

Any parent or leader recognizes the need to constantly emphasize and nurture virtue, while depravity needs no teacher.

About 5-6 years ago, I noticed a trend where every goddamn celebrity in history had been prominently labelled “Jewish”, if they had any Jewish heritage within six generations, as in the “Jewish-Danish” physicist Niels Bohr.

These days, you’ll be lucky if you find a clue in bio section as to whether someone is a Hebe.

The classical world was weakened when Rome collapsed, but it continued on with the Byzantine Empire at the center and the Gothic states around the Mediterranean. The Roman aqueducts were still maintained (but not expanded) at least. So things were getting a little dimmer. Then the Muslims invaded North Africa and went pirating in the Med – the economy collapsed and the lights went out.

Well, the Italian Peninsula went from ~12 million at Rome’s height to ~3 million by the 6th century or so. Plague and lots of wars tend to do that. The Muslim pirates basically prevented southern Italy and Spain from making much progress for hundreds of years after that…

I see all of the craziness around us as a simple cry for meaningfulness, a frantic search for a reason to exist. People seem to have lost the thread of family, community, and simply getting oneself in synch with the seasons of nature and of man. Not to go all zen, but maybe just watching a fine sunset from the front porch of your own home, with your neighbors arrayed around you and your family in your home behind you, which is stocked with what you need and a pillow to rest your head, is as good as it gets.

Actual human connection is lost, replaced by getting together with people once a week to watch a video from some other megachurch pastor.

Just to add to the pessimism:
Petrarch’s Dark Age was not the result of the combination of (1) shift in the demographics and (2) shift of power to women. So a few centuries later that same people could pick up the pieces and rediscover the Roman Civilization. Is this still a possibility for the future?

During most of our species’ evolutionary history, we lived in an environment of extreme hardship and existential threat. In those days, being stupid, more often than not, got you dead before you could reproduce, and as a result, we got stronger, smarter, and more robust. Now-a-days, being extra stupid no longer gets you dead, it gets you promoted to Dean of your Department. And nothing will change until the environment once again demands better of us.

When the environment demands better of us, that is where the white has always done best, because of a long term time horizon and a true spirit of cooperation. Other cultures, for whatever reason, tend towards the selfish, and resort to theft and plundering of their own. Whites have traditionally mastered the art of cooperation for mutual benefit. Has it been bred and coached out of us? We may soon find out.

All civilization is dysgenic because it collectivizes survival. Taxing the fit to subsidize the unfit is the opposite of Darwinism and yields the opposite result, making each generation lazier, weaker, and stupider than the last.

Dark ages cull the imbeciles so that the next great civilization can rise and flourish. We must either succumb to the barbarians or become the barbarians.

Our imbeciles are still breeding like rabbits, so our decline has a ways to go.

Scale, subsidiarity and localism matter in this. A family or clan fit enough to care for its own weaker members doesn’t burden the tribe or nation with its baggage in the same way that a scaled-up, top-down national welfare system does. The system tends to equilibrium on a grassroots level and accounts for deadbeats and the hopeless closest to home, where the knowledge of character can inform charitable allocations. Darwinian selection will always conflict with family and social cohesion and I don’t care to live in a Randian society where the weak are left to die. Keeping charity closest to… Read more »

There is a middle ground between being left in the street to die and being given a free ride. We need to find that.

Ed Dutton’s work on the eugenics of capital punishment points the way. Eliminate the serious offenders early – no more “juvenile justice” for stuff like murder & rape & ramp up penalties across the board. Sterilize those we don’t hang. Temporarily or permanently sterilize baby mommas who burden the system. And start transitioning to a system of clan responsibility rather than top-down welfare (but that’s for a further future). I’ve resisted eugenics for years but the Han and other competitors aren’t, That said, the main driver for my shift on eugenics is the ongoing degeneracy of our communities.

“All Civilization is dysgenic” is far too broad a brush. Human social grouping and job specialization (Civilization) *enables* survival. It’s only when civilization reaches a point that there are a large proportion of people who no longer have a productive role that it becomes dysgenic. Rome fell, partially due to the massive idleness of the once-working classes due to slave labor.

The sacrifice of the weak is not a recipe for civilizational success – it’s a recipe for a people with brutality of the American Indians and the same level of advancement.

The internet and the hubris of the opposition in openly declaring us dead too early are the current errors we’re learning to exploit. They’ll make more in the future and our tactics and focus will shift accordingly.

After reading a number of comments I am struck that everyone is so close to the actual motive force behind the present cultural decline but unable to see it clearly. I am of course speaking of the ‘r vs K reproductive theory’ that was quite well known only a few years ago. I think if you check it out (there’s a web site) you’ll agree!

Legion,

You’ll find this place to be quite versatile and intelligent. I’m, admittedly, at times at a loss to follow and often floored by the input of many of these folks. Stick around. You’ll get a dose of r/k, JQ, CQ, centrifugal-culture analysis, and a bachelor’s degree in ancient civilizational studies.

Z does this often. I’ve not done so recently, but Ice People vs. Sun People and Derb’s Northern Alliance are two big themes I believe in. As an RK guy you’re among informed friends here.

‘Enforced conformity around a body of anti-knowledge is seen as the solution to whiteness’. Bull’s-eye!

You bring up Cordelia fine, I did a podcast with red ice radio on that book.

On top of receiving grants to write that book, after it was published she was given a cash prize equal to around 33,000 dollars by a “science” organization in the UK.

Her book could best be summed up in one phrase “Straw-man”

Z-man,

This was a great post. The death of the West is a most important topic and you did it well.

The thread that followed was filled with inciteful posts. It reminds me of why I like this site better than any others on the far right.

Bravo to all.

How about the growing Dark Light?

Besides Dark Enlightenment and Yarvin et al on the higher end it’s beginning to peep in shafts all over including popular culture.

* Man in High Castle effect
* Nazis don’t look crazy anymore. Evil yes, crazy no.
*Counterpart; Summary- Human nature wins, mixing worlds catastrophe. The summary argument by Yanek to Management; “It took 40 years for the DDR to admit its experiment had failed. How long will it take you? Admit it- the experiment has failed.”
*All the light on Roy Cohn cuz Trump- Rehabilitation of Roy Cohn already underway.

Curiosity about other cultures and ways of life IS implicitly white. We grew up in it and just assume that the rest of the world is exactly the same. They aren’t. The brown and black world will go somewhere (preferably white) to escape the savagery of their homelands and live beyond 30, not because they are interested but in order to survive. Otherwise the swarthy folk wouldn’t give a shit about how we live. This white curiosity is fine and we tip our hats at missionaries and explorers who have have been thrown into the cannibal’s pot or contracted yellow… Read more »

Recovery from the Dark Ages was slow. See chapter 3 Charles Murray’s “Human Accomplishment”. He describes life in Antonine Rome and Roman Briton to Samuel Johnson’s 18th century London, to the disadvantage of London.

Many people on the right side of the divide understand why the institutions were developed. They just don’t care. The left doesn’t care why the institutions were developed, they just want to use the to achieve their goals.

Yes, this was very good. Good observations. But, the next question is the big one: once we know the West is sinking in to a dark age, what can or should a healthy, sane, practical Western man do? What to do? Other Westerners have “noticed” this dark age, especially after the collapse of the old European orders in World War I. Lots of Western people looked to classical civilization, to Asian civilizations particularly Egypt, Persia and India. Our God(s) had failed us so some of our best people looked to other, older Gods and some found that these “other Gods”… Read more »

Growing up in the extreme rural areas of the USA, mostly as a free range child, I was not required to form predefined racial, or religious dogmas to form decisions of human beings. Humans are humans, birds are birds, canines are canines, equines are equines. Although public sector school systems still held deeply ingrained policies of racism, even after the Kennedy assassination, after the forced integration in schools. Politically, it seems that putting cultural “skin color ” “racism” , instead of who is best skilled at what particular job in government, and not what party they are affiliated with, is… Read more »

“Somewhere in the last century or maybe the prior century, people in the West began to lose the ability to control their institutions. By control, it should be understood to mean the knowledge of how they work and why they were created. It is one thing to know how to use the toilet. It is another thing to understand public sanitation and the reason it is a vital public service. People in the West no longer seem to know why their institutions exist or how they must be maintained in order to properly function.” And that explains it all. Too… Read more »
