The Awakening

Note: Today at 3:00 PM EDT I will be Fullmoon Ancestry. He is a writer and translator usually based in Europe, but back in the US celebrating Covid-19. He writes for Greg Johnson’s site and host Greg’s week D-Line show. We will be discussing Heavy Metal and Anglo-Saxon poetry for an hour or so.

The Great Awakening refers to a number of periods in American history in which there was a widespread religious revival among evangelical Protestants. These periods are characterized by an increase in church membership, but also the formation of new sects and movements. The people swept up in the movements are filled with a strong desire to reform not just religion, but carry their conviction into the rest of the society, in the form of social and political activism.

There are debates as to how many of these periods there have been. Historians agree that the first awakening began in the 1730’s and lasted about a decade. The British evangelist George Whitefield toured the colonies, preaching and organizing great revivals mostly among the British population, but also the Germans and Dutch. He also converted African slaves to Christianity, which was the first time since slavery was introduced into the colonies. He also founded the Methodist Church.

The second awakening happened in the later 18th and early 19th century. Like the first awakening, it was largely based in the Northeast and Midwest. This period of religious revival was accompanied by other social reform movements such as temperance and abolitionism. Reformers also agitated for things like limiting tobacco use, public dress codes and public health initiatives. The abolition movement emerged in the North from the wider Second Great Awakening.

When it comes to subsequent awakenings, historians disagree as to whether they constitute awakenings, rather than reform movements. The Social Gospel movement in the late 19th century is counted an awakening by some. The growth of conservative religious denominations in the middle of the last century is counted as a continuation of this pattern of religious revival. The difference is that the ruling class had abandoned Christianity in the 20th century, so they were unaffected.

The abandonment of Christianity by the American elites does not mean that the old cycle of moral revival went away. That old reformist rhythm did not disappear, but was instead channeled into secular causes. The New Deal, for example, was not solely about economics. The main thrust of the reforms was an effort to unify the country around socially useful causes. There were widespread reforms designed to improve public health, living standards and quality of life.

Similarly, the upheavals of mid-century had a strong spiritual element. Civil Rights was a purely moral cause with strong religious undertones. The language of the cultural upheavals had a strong reformist angle. The central claim being that America had become synthetic and commercial. Rejection of the materialism of the age was about restoring humanity. Of course, the feminists were building on female reform movements dating back to the prior century.

It may be that there is a biological element to these periods of reform. In the 18th and 19th century, the reformist impulse was channeled through mainline Protestantism, as religious revivals, with a social activism component. As Christianity faded from the ruling class, the reformist impulse was channeled through social activism. The New Dealers retained some Christian language, but they were secular reformers. The mid-century radicals were purely secular reformers with the zeal of a believer.

This may explain what we are seeing today. Go back to the 1980’s and the Left was in the decline. The decline pre-dated Reagan, but accelerated through the Bush I years into the Clinton years. Despite his rhetoric and the media propaganda, Bill Clinton was no Progressive reformer. His one foray into activism was heath care and once that collapsed, he raced to the middle and stayed there for his tenure. It was the election of George Bush in 2000 that woke up the Left.

The Bush II years were not a Progressive awakening, but the stirrings were there, with the revival of the anti-war movement. It was the election of Barak Obama that set off this period of radicalism and social activism. It was in this period when race relations began to deteriorate, mostly through the agitation of the ruling class. The same is true of sex relations, with the many rape hoaxes on the college campus. Obama himself became something of a religious figure for the Left.

One important difference between these secular spasms of reform and their Christian antecedents is the structure. Protestant reformers always had the framework of Scripture to both give their efforts authority and place limits on their desires. The limiting principle of Christian revivals is that salvation is for the next life. The moral principles are right there in Scripture for everyone to examine. The movements may have been led by men, but were guided by a doctrine that is clear to everyone.

The secular reformer has no source of moral authority or a limiting principle. For the secular zealot, salvation is in this life and there are no limits to achieving it. This is the problem with all radical movements since the Jacobins. When man becomes the source of moral authority, all of his actions have legitimacy. Those in opposition are not disputing the finer points of doctrine, but opposing the project itself. Eliminating the opposition becomes a goal of the project.

We see that in the current frenzy. The statue toppling is often pointless and absurd, but the motivation behind it is a reordering the present to fit the ideal. The elimination of the symbols and reminders of past sins is part of creating the glorious present. It’s clear in the language of the Left that the next logical step for them is the elimination of the people they believe are between them and their goal. The great racial revival will require the elimination of white men entirely.

The other difference between the Christian awakening and the secular variant is the former was an effort to elevate man toward an ideal. The latter is mostly a war against an imaginary enemy that prevents the emergence of the ideal society. The current reformers only want to rage at white people, for example, who they universally characterize as supremacists. It’s why the focus is on destruction. These secular revivals are narcissistic and shallow.

Now, this connection to past religious revivals explains how the ruling class has been so quick to embrace this latest spasm. They don’t know why they feel compelled to take the knee and feel glorious in so doing, but the revelry is just as real to them as it would have been to evangelicals Protestants. That reformist urge is like a monster inside them that has to feed every couple of decades. Even when it is bad for business, as in the case of sports, they join in the revelry.

The good news is these spasms burn out. This spasm may be an echo of the one which lifted Obama into office. That great awakening is nearing an end. It is a reaction to the reaction of normal people in the form of the Trump election. This summer the final flashes of it will subside and they enter their dormant phase. The bad news is a generation from now the young people swept up in this spasm will be leading a new spasm of narcissistic revelry.

There are some Christians who lack a limiting principle and view man (or rather some men from New England universities) as above reproach, and it seems that the “reformers” we’re plagued with even today are the descendants (morally and a lot of times via blood) of the Yankees still tormenting normal white people in the Midwest and South. This explains anti-racism, I think. How can some white people not pay for the sin of being white, while all the other ones must? Because the whites at the Ford Foundation or MSNBC are the predestined. Why does the “and then?” dynamic… Read more »

And any concept of reciprocal responsibilities has been erased from a huge cohort of the population. Watch all the footage of the latest Atlanta fiasco and the accompanying chatter from these same classes. 20 minutes of polite, even deferential treatment from the two officers, but as I’ve seen working DWI accidents, once you blow over the limit and fail the other field tests, the PD has to arrest you for drunk driving. Then the guy goes full apeshit, steals one of the officers weapons, tries to use it on him and gets shot for his efforts. But all you see… Read more »

Agree. I checked “The Root” Sunday night and this was only substative news piece on the front page. I’d expect bias from The Root, but the story will be the same in the MSM. The country seems to be convinced that any police activity against a black man must be brutality. Granted there are going to be times when force was excessive or even mistaken (Breonna Taylor) but these are, so far as I know, a tiny minority of arrests. Even with the current crop of martyrs, have you noticed that rarely, if ever, does the Black man not resist?… Read more »

I was frankly more upset at the Taylor incident than any of the rest of these. Wrong address, no announcement, boyfriend was apparently a legal firearm owner. Taylor seemed to be an upstanding person who was doing useful and hard work on behalf of society—and you have to pass background checks for emergency services–so not one of these “four violent prior felonies” types. Yet crickets at the time. And have a real beef with PDs that buy all these toys, then to justify feel like they have to go around playing Fallujah on US citizens.

So is the common black reliance on violent resistance a real thing? If so, is it a cultural thing or is it inborn? Seriously, where does this come from? Do we need to add it to the list of fundamental incompatibilities between the different races and cultures attempting to live together?

Don’t know. Have some limited exposure to it from my Fire/EMS days. Think it is a combo platter of low cognitive ability and socialization. Once you get a below 85 IQ “time preference” is a real challenge so most of your decisions are made in the moment with less frontal lobe capacity to consider second order consequences. As you have emptied a lot of these ghettos of the black middle class–who decamped long ago, you are left with the remainder. Add in zero socialization in fatherless families, so there is no inherent sense of “agency”, well, you get this.

Not really. Negroes in the period 1865-1965 knew their place, and kept to it because unlike today, they had a respect for white men based on fear. Now they no longer fear us, and their violence is encouraged. So their propensity for savagery can be kept in check, but only through fear.

Black folk got hit harder but so did a lot younger people of all ethnic groups who simply are expected to compete with 3rd worlders, slave labor and automation. The results of this have been just under 50 years of below replacement fertility for every group and large scale riots every couple three decades. (60’s, 92, 2020’s)… Read more »

Clearly some of the ingrained attitudes and beliefs of Blacks (and us for the matter) is learned. Yet some of it is innate (genetic) according to many authors (none you’ll read in the MSM, of course). It is human nature to tailor your narrative, your life story if you will, to your circumstances, typically we take credit for our successes and blame outside factors for our failures.

Whites are always responsible for the bad behavior of blacks. This urge exists in both the left and the “right” (gop types). Left wing whites blame systemic racism and the right wing types blame the welfare state and most recently, white agent provocateurs.

Sam Harris is a rather sad figure. It’s so obvious to me that he’s on his way to being de-personed by his old Lefty “friends” and yet I’m just as sure it will be a total shock to him.

No, I think there is more than low IQ at work here. There are plenty of white dumb fucks ( <= 85), in fact numerically roughly the same absolute populations due to the different normal distributions of IQ by race. Yet violence seems to be disproportionately a black thing. There likely are (or “should be”) studies done about this. Two easy conjectures: (1) a genetic basis (perhaps the so-called “warrior gene”); (2) Environment: For example, on average whites have 10-20x the wealth of blacks, so the white dullards are likely to be better looked after by family, friends or neighbors… Read more »

I think it’s the genetic mesh. The worst whites exist in a larger white population plus there is a reversion to the racial mean. If you take any particular black and put them in an otherwise all white population, they are going to try to conform to the norm as best they can. The local environment created by blacks is just a lot worse than the local environment created by poor whites. It’s like a self-polluting environment. The marginal black ends up being raised in an awful environment. Where he might have been able to pull himself up had he… Read more »

There is a historian/political philosopher who has studied this battle between man’s earthy aspirations (immanence) vs. other worldly ideals (transcendence): Eric Voegelin. He begins during its manifestation in the 2nd Century A.D. with the Gnostic Movement. Immanence is man’s fervent belief in the perfectibility of society by man with an anointed class imposing its will. Transcendence is man understanding his imperfection and making allowances for god, nature and the afterlife to act as final arbiter. These were books written in the ’50s and ’60s. He’s a German writing in English so they are not a quick read. Substitute race for… Read more »

And I recall one of the things he told me was about working at high levels of the government: unless you were a member of the club you didn’t have a chance.

Zman’s post is timely for me. I’ve been trying to anticipate the future of this quasi-religious crusade by BLM/Antifa.

Actually you can – to a certain degree.
Our traditional church has warded of several attempts to pozz it by queers, feminists, and SJW’s. we are unfailingly polite and respectful to them, but when they start trying to change our traditions we reject those efforts as a group and will not be drawn into argument with them. If they persist we politely ostracize them and exclude them as trouble makers. With no drama or theatrics, they lose interest and walk away.
If you face a burning, looting mob… find a concealed position and start shooting.

My feeling, as well. The rioting was spontaneous around the USA and in Europe. That means the usual leftist professionals are front-running this operation. If we had a functioning FBI, we would already have followed the money that keeps Antifa and other radical groups in business. Obviously, the Establishment likes this arrangement.

My kids keep track of all this on social media. They have common sense and at the knowledge of history I’ve imparted to them. But even they are astonished at the self flagellation among upper middle class white kids. My youngest daughter pops into my office at least once a day with the latest “what the fuck?” example from Instagram or Snapchat. They are wise enough to stay out of it.

Wendy’s still has chicken sandwiches, but they are awful. Like many a restaurant, Wendy’s is apparently at the point in their business life where they serve the customer cheap garbage. What passes for their chicken sandwiches is a case in point.   Think, “new pizza shop in town.” Oh boy! They use the best cheese. Best olive oil. Customers rave, “this is great pizza!” Then the owners switch to crap ingredients, as they enter the phase where they make money. Eventually, they fill their pockets. restaurant closes.

Haven’t eaten at one in years. But many years ago met a guy who was a beef supplier. Unique to fast food, Wendy’s sourced the fresh beef locally and was fastidious on quality and content. A Wendy’s guy would do a “cook down” on every shipment to ensure the fat/lean tested exactly to their spec. Shame they’ve gone to crap too.

The black tranny tent revival in Brooklyn is an interesting microcosm of how blacks project their collective failure onto other races.   As black trannies have been killed over the last decade or so, they’ve tried to meme themselves as victims of evil whitey. But the dirty truth is that the only people killing black trannies are “cisgender” black men, including black policemen. Black men, upon discovering that the women they were screwing turned out to be men, see this as a taint (pun intended) on their honor, so they kill the trannies in a flare of passion and anger.… Read more »

A major difference this time around, though, is the prevalence of Blacks.

An actual “second coming” type event would not surprise me (and no, having lots of Whites is no defense. I taught a LOT of college girls over the years, and trust me, the only difference between them and grunting savages is perfume and vocal fry. If this COVID crap was even half as bad as it’s billed, they’d be trying actual human sacrifice by now).

As the GOP loses the demographic battle over the next decade, particularly at the presidential level, the Dem old guard – Jews and gentile whites – will fight it out with the new guard – blacks and Hispanics led by Indians.
 
The old guard will have the money and the organization, but the new guard will have the numbers and the Dem’s moral high ground. The old guard wants to rule over a country similar to what they grew up with, while the new guard wants to fundamentally overturn that world.

Progs are pushing the Atlanta Wendy’s incident to keep the momentum going, but it has less traction than even jogger man, and is even getting pushback from cucks.

All in all, the nonsense will stop when things get so odd and isoteric that no one can even speak the same language to each other, or the rioters start accusing the actual ruling class of being the modern day witch, racist.

Lot of money in that business. Hence the push to get government medical programs to cover it. Interesting thing is the number of people now reverting back to original gender after discovering the problem was in their head, not body. No different than anorexia. What I shudder to think about is the long term effects of what are effectively Munchausens cases, where “having” a tranny kid is a social totem–but now pouring hormones into pre-pubescent children. Twenty years on that is going to be a medical disaster.

Tearing down monuments to black involvement in the civil war is part of the plan. All history must be erased, and reconstituted along the lines of the required narrative. Get rid of the statues of the abolitionists, as whites cannot possibly have any “good” in them, and the idea that whites and blacks fought together for the same cause must be eliminated, all as part of establishing the narrative that whites are irredeemably, 100% evil.

Maybe he can trick his blind ol’ Da into giving him his brother’s birthright when he’s drunk and tired after an orgy with his slave-girls?

Winning is the only true holiness.

Hint: Mr S, they don’t read your New Testament. Could care in the least what it says, okay?

The good news is these spasms burn out. This spasm may be an echo of the one which lifted Obama into office. That great awakening is nearing an end.” And it’s coinciding with coming climax of the current 4th Turning, predicted to peak around 2025. The question is: What comes out the other side? How we ultimately handle the current chaos as a society and polity may give an answer.

The revivals of past centuries were limited by the practicalities of life in that era, namely that there was far less leisure time and hard work was a necessity to stay alive. Few had the luxury of protesting all-day everyday. If you wanted to eat, you had to work. Not so anymore. Our modern environment no longer imposes a penalty for being a lazy bum most the time and a protestor when the urge strikes. Instead of aspiring to be virtuous via the imposition of equal thought, we are becoming whining layabouts that pitch a fit once in while.

I guess that the last paragraph is meant to reassure us that the current lunacy is about to end, and won’t be back for a decade or so. Perhaps that is correct.

The odds favor Trump still being around another 4 years. He’s similar to Nixon, unliked by the majority, but less scary than the alternative. Biden is such a joke of a candidate that even with wide spread cheating, I doubt he can pull it off. Trump needs to stay on the offensive, though. Although Nixon prevailed among the voters, he did not finish his term. The left will continue fighting him with all means possible. Biden is already talking about his fear that Trump will steal the election.

The entire purported Christian premise of the Civil Rights movement was fabricated out of whole cloth to serve the zealotry of its participants. Christ died to make men free of their sin after death.

this is well worth the time , it goes over the reasons people are behaving the way they are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neCwX0Ja4ro it’s by a guy who posts as blithering genius. it really is the best rundown on the whys of this I have seen . the last part of this is prescient, the 68-69 summer of rage , summer of love hardened the goofy ideas that people who took part in that held at the time. I have commented before and gotten support for the observation that people who are of that age are completely impervious to observation, facts and reason.… Read more »

South Philly Italians stand up for Columbus, slap soyboy reporter around:

Of course, I’m sure the Soros-backed Philly DA is going to prosecute these based whites to the fullest extent of the law.

Nor Broad Channel. I was in Manhattan over the weekend and it is remarkable. Just remarkable the dozens of boarded up stores I saw. Whole blocks of them.
 
Yet no MSM coverage.
 
Imagine the irony. /s

Trump just publicly labeled the confederate flag “disrespectful.” The bull has begun to courtesy in the china closet.
 
I feel like a man without a country. Perhaps, though, I can still be a man with a nation.

Hey, nothing to worry about! When the military runs out of Southern boys to serve as combat infantrymen, no doubt they will have an army of totally woke folks to step on IEDs and ride over them in unarmored vehicles. They might even have their own inside joes about “humvees”.

And as a plus, with the inability to ghost in here and edit posts, we can be characterized as “illiterate” by the wokesters!

Z Man said: “Obama himself became something of a religious figure for the Left.”   Hahahaha! Seriously. Check out these magazine cover. 😀     I was raised in the kind of churchs that had revivals on a regualr basis. It was all about Salvation, Hell Fire, spreading the Gospel, the second coming, the Rapture and of course Armageddon. So I’ve always been able to relate when historians, Bible scholars and social critics talked about leftism being a derivative of Christian theology. Individuals formed into a mob finally have the power to expiate their guilt, and forget, at least momentarily,… Read more »

Bible trivia: Being the scapegoat was actually a good thing, or lesser of two evils I guess 🙂 . The Jews sacrificed one goat, and the [E]scape Goat was left alive, to wander off into the wilderness with the sins of the people or whatever.

Thanx for the BT. But two legged goats are never that fortunate.

My wife and I have a running joke she enjoys. I have a very “male” name, and she takes care of business stuff, mudane shit, over the phone. They still ask, “am I speaking to (male name)?” Incredulous.
 
She laughs and says, “yes, is there a reason you are asking/?”
 
Then we get a laugh out of it.

Years ago some miscreant on a commuter train tried to sucker punch me in the back of the head. But ended up getting laid out by an overhand right by my now wife. He wasn’t expecting that.

Havel’s definition of a post-totalitarian world: “Within the system, every individual is trapped within a dense network of the state’s governing instruments…themselves legitimated by a flexible but comprehensive ideology, a ‘secularized religion’…it is therefore necessary to see, argued Havel, that power relations…are best described as a labyrinth of influence, repression, fear and self-censorship which swallows up everyone within it, at the very least by rendering them silent, stultified and marked by some undesirable prejudices of the powerful…”Havel uses the example of a greengrocer who displays in his shop the sign Workers of the world, unite!. Since failure to display the… Read more »

Clearly you’re a plant and not one of us. You don’t appear bright enough to be government, and that’s a low bar, but a mass troller sounds about right. Cheers.

The Left has organized a mini-revolution in an era of peace and prosperity. This shows the value of organization, period. It invalidates the idea of optics, ideas, normies; no, it is all organization. Here is the CIA manual for instructing the Contras on how foot soldiers [often barefooted BTW] can approach ‘normies’ – it is quite valid. Of particular interest is when bearing arms; disarm their fear of you by letting them handle your arms unloaded, show them the basic functions, explain then the weapons are to protect them. >there are many such clever, simple tricks herein. Another is to… Read more »

I interpret the earlier Awakenings as people entering the middle class, as in “When we began first to preach these things, the people appeared as awakened from the sleep of ages—they seemed to see for the first time that they were responsible beings, and that a refusal to use the means appointed was a damning sin.” But I think the recent Awakenings are about the meaning of life to a modern educated person. Is it to be a lefty activist, heroically leading the victims to justice? That has been the theme since the Jacobins and I think it a fatal… Read more »

Incidentally everyone, since we’re on the subject, THIS ASTONISHING REFLECTION by Jim Goad has just been published at Taki’s Magazine. Does it sum up the thoughts of increasing numbers of people, here and elsewhere? Awakening normies included? I’m wondering.
