Our Primitive Ugliness

Something that is easy to miss in the insanity of the current age is the fact that the people running the revolution are not just mediocre people, but they have the most mediocre dreams. Unlike revolutionaries of the past, they don’t speak of moving past this age of trouble and strife to a new age of man. There’s no sense that mankind can ascend to a higher level of existence. Instead, all of their energy is directed to that which touches on the imponderables of the human condition.

The assault on Confederate symbols is the most obvious. There’s no thought given to why these statues were erected by the people living in these communities. What little thought there is to the people who erected them is simplistic and childish. In fact, the need to know anything about the statues was so vexing and offensive to the people assaulting them, they quickly moved from attacking Confederate symbols to attacking all symbols that were connected with the past.

There’s certainly a strong anti-white element to this. They have to deny it for partisan reasons, as to do otherwise is to give the other side a victory, but only Progressive ideologues and their conservative enablers can deny it. The appeal, however, is in the simplicity, as it requires so little from the partisans. This is why they have moved so quickly from Confederate iconography through “symbols of whiteness” onto all items with a nuanced connection to the past.

This vulgar dullness is often read as just fanatical violence by rich kids seeking attention or authenticity within their movement. Others want to see it as just decorating common street criminals with politics. The thing is though, many of the rioters and statue topplers are the children of ruling class types. Just as the left-wing radicals of the sixties were the children of the bourgeoisie, today’s street radicals are children of the managerial elite. These are bourgeois revolutionaries.

The blandness of this revolution reflects the tastes and sensibilities of the people who produced the ideology and the radicals themselves. Look around at the creations of our modern rulers and the remarkable feature is the ugliness. If someone had dozed off in the 1960’s and been revived in this age, they would be sure the communists had won the Cold War and imposed their aesthetic on the West. Relative to the post war years in America, the modern aesthetic is offensively ugly.

The synthetic ugliness of the current year West surpasses the ugliness of communism in that it is the product of material excess. The dreariness of communist architecture, for example, could be explained by scarcity. They had to make do with what they could produce, which meant concrete and steel. The modern West is brimming with material excess, but insists on an aesthetic that captures the hopes and dreams of the career civil servant. Today’s style is depressed postal clerk.

This is, of course, the fruit of egalitarianism. When a society embraces the natural hierarchy of man, even the people at the top are looking up for inspiration. They are sure there is something better and more beautiful a little higher than where they currently stand. There’s no limiting principle to capturing the beauty and wonder of God’s creation. The aesthetic of such a society is one of increasing beauty and complexity in the art of the people.

In an egalitarian society, this is thrown into reverse. Everyone is discouraged from looking up, as that may suggest apostasy. Instead, the best only look up in order to get a better grip on the self-imposed ceiling, which is always pulled down. Everyone else is compelled to look down for a new lowest common denominator. Only in the most vulgar and debased can everyone be included. The result is a community that looks like film noir, but is awash in pornography and degeneracy.

This makes perfect sense, as egalitarianism inevitably flips the natural order on its head, elevating the bottom over all else. The ideological enforcers in the human resource department are no different from the ideological enforcers in communism. These people are not selected for their skill, but their stupidity. They are too stupid to contemplate what they are doing. Instead, they puff out their chests and stiffen their backs for having memorized the latest party fads.

The same is true of the volunteer auxiliary police patrolling the public space for unapproved thoughts. Imagine the dullness and ugliness of someone who takes the job of Facebook moderator. It is no wonder so many of them are South Asian. The Indian subcontinent’s primary export is the narrow-minded functionary, best fit for the ticket window of the train station. The fact that suicide is not common among the staff of social media firms confirms the dullness of them.

At first blush, it seems like a paradox that a system capable of marshaling human effort to produce such spectacular material excess also produces such mediocre men. It’s as if the engine of material progress uses the creativity and passion, the hopes and aspirations of the people as fuel to make consumer goods. Just as the failed materialism of communism denuded the land of culture and beauty, liberal democracy is doing the same, just with high tech materials.

If it were just ugliness, one could think that perhaps the next phase of man is a post-beauty world, where the aesthetic is defined by efficiency. That’s not so, as the people are also made vulgar and simplistic as well. What passes for intellectual endeavor in the modern academy is striking for its narrowness. The innovative thinker is one who manages to lop off some new bits of human knowledge. The goal of intellectual life is to reduce the stock of human knowledge.

This is most evident in politics. The market place of ideas that is supposed to be the wellspring of liberal democracy has resulted in a bazaar full of weirdos all selling the exact same goods. The defining feature of the modern elections is their pointlessness, as no matter the result, policy never changes. In modern politics, innovation is treated like superstition. Anyone suggesting something different is treated like he has been possessed by a demon or is in league with Old Scratch.

Perhaps liberal democracy has reached a point where a small number of capable people can keep everything running, while the mediocre and stupid run riot. Maybe that is the world at the end of history. Given the recent madness, there is a strong case to be made for this argument. On the other hand, history says man cannot live without beauty, even the simplest expressions of it. The inexplicable beauty of the world has always demanded our attention. Will we want to live without it?

It’s not that all comments are equal; it’s that people look at upvotes and downvotes before they read the actual content. If something is well-regarded by the community — or perceived to be — you start out wanting to like it. I don’t think anyone is immune to that. Maybe I have too much time on my hands, but I don’t find the absence of voting inconvenient at all. If anything, it should encourage people to be specific about what they like in their critiques.

I just think the potential for misuse and groupthink is greater than the utility.

The destruction of beauty is not just in tearing down or replacing of current monuments and other prior historical endeavors. It also involves the elevation of mediocre creations that must be touted as “great” works of art. As we proceed in our negrophilia, we are treat daily to their endeavors—and repulsive as they are—we are required to praise them.

Not only is a once great civilization/society being replaced by a lessor one, but we are to be humiliated in the process. So the knife is twisted in the wound.

One can be certain that … the masks render every face equally plain. Except that they don’t, not really. I’ve noticed several women with strikingly lovely eyes – even complimented a couple. Without exception they blushed and thanked me for the compliment. I realize that such behavior is fraught with risk these days but I do not care. I have also (pre-lockdown) been known to compliment a black woman for wearing an African-inspired print which especially highlighted their (light black/cafe au lait) complexion.

They become habituated to it in a way you never have. Those kids were plopped down in front of a TV with MTV from the time they were kids. Maybe not gangsta rap, but definitely black. It became a background b-track of their lives playing on the radio, in movies, on MTV. That is also one way every generation gets worse. They have a new and lower and more vulgar floor, a new baseline. The generations are like taking the escalator down.

I am no fan of gansta rap, or rap in general (created so people who cannot sing or play an instrument can be music celebrities). But it would be a lie if I said i do not enjoy any “non-white” music. Speaking of, “Low Rider” itself is enjoyable. But I would never mistake it for Bach’s Ave Maria or Palestrina.

The embrace of ugliness, for a lot of the regular people who do it, is the same old story: self-congratulatory “tolerance.” If you want a really depressing weekend activity, go to the Facebook or Instagram of normie women. It’s endless “yougogirl! goodforyou!” approval of the obese and ugly as well as the literally crippled and retarded. I think it’s part of a larger psychological trap, namely mascotism. People adopt “mascots,” ie, those with a high cost to society, to show how unselfish they are. I care more about these worthless people than myself, how good I am! I put down… Read more »

Something I noticed as a child was the more reprehensible the object of a liberal’s solicitude, the more the liberal patted herself on the back for her compassion and understanding.
On Breitbart (which I was banned from earlier this week for criticizing The Usual Suspects), read a thread on abortion which will inevitably degenerate into hysteria over Black abortion and blaming Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger. The Right-to-Life cause is prone to this over-the-top virtue-signalling – people may remember Terri Schiavo.

I think the lack of joy in the majority of young people is proof that beauty is already dead. I am a teacher, and that is the marked change I notice in young people. Not excitement, for they can get all riled up, but, rather, the lack of sustained contentment. I am aware that your teens and early twenties are tough, but the majority are simply sugar addled, dopamine riddled, stimulus seeking junkies. It is truly sad to see. Beauty is lost on them, replaced by the desire for stimulation. One only needs to consider how they flick through 20… Read more »

This is the reason they need such high immigration. The managerial elite have created a system to completely destroy any human they touch. Other school teachers have mentioned that the only students with the spark and drive to be entrepreneurs are the immigrants. EVERYONE else gets swallowed up.

It’s easy to complain about the brown horde invasion, as well as their mediocrity (they are). But then you look at the state of the average white 21 year old. A mediocre, nepotistic Indian engineer is still better for a business than a depressed, pothead, arts-educated white guy. It is tragic.

Hence the reason you’ll never catch me screaming at or hating on non-whites. My goal is to build up my people, and “make us great again”. That’s where the issue is, it’s with whites being brought down to a certain level of retardation. And it’s horrible.

There is no doubt heterogenous grouping is poison. In most places, with the exception of where our overlords send their kids, the students all get mixed together because Honors courses otherwise would not be diverse enough. As a result, many of the kids are able to coast by knowing nothing. It is a disservice to all the students.

1970’s as a little kid I was a voracious reader. I spent my allowance on flashlight batteries instead of candy. Dad imposed lights out at 9:30pm and I read under the covers with a flashlight until 2 or 3am. Both staying up late while working away mentally and fast, comprehensive reading proved assets in later life. If today’s children are reading quality works online, I’m not so sure this dulls them, although like me they’ll need eyeglasses or contacts.

My two cents, but having a young person read actual books and to first learn to write by hand (pencil and paper) and to compose his thoughts without any convenience items like a computer, is going to force him to use his wits and force his brain into high gear. the quality of expression and composition will exceed anything you get when people write directly into a computer.

Chicago- I agree with you. However, in the past, the works you were reading were vetted, published material.

Having lived through the typewriter to word processor revolution, I am not sure I completely agree.

But in reality, one of two things happened: (1) a lot more thinking and handwriting before typing, or (2) that little extra polish was not worth the effort.

This is WRONG. Even if one trusts the official figures, non-hispanic Whites are currently 59% of the population (or was that for 2015?). That is per self-identification, and includes 2-3% Jews, 1-2% Arabs, various Kazakhs and Bosnians and Latin American mestizos who are considered ‘white’ at home, etc. The under-18 population in the US is majority non-White today.

A mainstream “reporter” would never investigate because they’d be interviewing their own children. The black looters were common street trash, but the white rioters and their veneer of affirmative action BLM militants were exactly as Z described them: children of the managerial elite. A few enterprising independent investigators such as National Justice have dug into the backgrounds of the rioters and found them to be the children of media figures, government bureaucrats, politicians, lawyers and judges, academics, corporate bigwigs, nonprofit and NGO directors, and other managerial elites. In some cases there are also government agents provocateur, including participants from the… Read more »

The same people who created al Qaeda and ISIS molded BLM and Antifa.

All 4 organizations have deluded or conned true believers pulled from the lower rungs of the managerial elite or from those striving to join the managerial elite, but all 4 are fueled and directed by their fundraisers. Trump, for example, “won” the fight against ISIS by simply withdrawing their funding and redirecting it to other astroturfed organizations.

The first postulate of the DR is that Biology precedes Culture. The theory of High Genetic Mutational Load therefore explains a lot about the deterioration we see today.

Atheism.

The problem with that explanation is that America is both the most religious nation in the Western hemisphere, and the most pozzed.

You don’t hear priests condemn the pharisees, quote Urban II or admonish their flock to drive the money-lenders out of the temple. Or, indeed, say stuff like “if slavery was fine by Jesus Christ, it’s fine by me.”

Religion is downstream from culture, and when the culture is pozzed, so is religion.

The destruction of statues, and…ahem…cathedrals, proceeds from the subversion of the institutions, including the religious denominations. The New Left, beginning in the 60s, colonized seminaries and theology schools, just as they conquered academia in general. The result is nearly monolithic AWR clergy who dare not condemn the savages who are demolishing white artifacts. In fact, they are more likely to cheer on the destruction.

The Orthodox church is run by straight men. Queerness is not tolerated. While a majority are leftward in terms of political preference these are still very socially conservative.

Women, for all the hype, don’t actually want to be in serious combat units and don’t hold up well there.

I also met quite a few serious right-wingers among my son’s fellow soldiers and officers — they just know when to keep their mouths shut.

Vizzini – My deepest sympathy for the loss of your son. Mine was deployed albeit not to a combat zone, with the national guard. Cavalry scout. Still in contact with some good men who are on our side, but there are a lot more who are still blind.
There’s a film up on the web about the first parachute drop in the Arctic circle in 1957, which my father-in-law was part of with the 82nd Airborne. Even that film featured Negroes.

Sorry to read about your son.

The last valid argument for military service is what you pointed out, but decent training also is going by the wayside and has been for a while. Even the special forces have started to be pozed. Those who have served should train our young men under the radar. The secret police routinely issue warnings about vets going rogue and it is a good bet they keep closer track of them, especially those with specialized training, than we know.

Drinking hemlock was also explained in his last dialogue(s). It was the culmination of his life and philosophy wrt the State. The State was wrong, and he freely admits such, however the State had the “right” to execute him—that is to say, be wrong —and he had the responsibility/duty to accept his fate/punishment. Socrates’ final act therefore was proof that he talked the talked and walked the walk. He remained true to his beliefs and teachings. That was his final lesson.

It’s been a long time since I read that dialogue but if memory serves, his argument was that Athens made him so Athens had the right to execute him, and if he’d escaped he’d more or less have been committing treason.

At any rate he submitted to the will of people less wise than him— listened to them. Which meant he recognized a higher authority than truth or wisdom. It’s an interesting twist at the end of the life of a philosopher.

I’d suggest 1984 first, but Rand did do a good job of envisioning the steps by which our nation could be dismantled. To get the essence of “Atlas Shrugged,” read John Galt’s speech: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1x08QhNX_a1iB5Dt5uEC21q_GMvrM0sbd6zba2UOb6c0/edit

The culture has been africanized. Those africanized bees accidentally released in Brazil, steadily infiltrating northward is a metaphor for what has happened to the western homelands. Large numbers perversely celebrate it, but good or bad (it’s bad), that’s our fate.

Africanized and judaized and feminized, a weird ugly witch’s brew of a culture.

It’s possible to halt it, but where and how the European-descended will invent resistant barriers is anybody’s guess. Still, you don’t have to know the exact shape of the future to assist its birth.

With so much architecture and floor layouts and designs, it’s apparent the architect’s only goal is to design a house that sells itself on a computer screen and that how the house works and flows in real life is not even on his radar. Architecture has been reduced to little more than a commodity.

Beauty is downstream to high self-worth, which is downstream to accomplishment, which is downstream to survival. In order to have any value, beauty’s appreciation must be earned. If you’ve done nothing with your life (and avoided the normal evolutionary selection exit), then beauty is as foreign as pride. The demise of beauty in our current society foreshadows a bleak future for mankind as nature created us. The new artificial subspecies will adopt video gaming as it’s substitute for statue appreciation. That is, unless Plan B works.

In all fairness, video games are the one thing where you will find artistic inspiration and real creativity today and, sometimes, an expression of beauty despite it often seeming perfunctory and like it was a way for them earn extra credit on their homework assignment. In my experience, the best artists today are going into video games. Second-storngers into movies / TV. Third-strangers or total rejects into novels. Speaking in generalities of course 99% of architects today strike me as not knowing their ass from their elbow. And so many house designs today lack anything in the way of a… Read more »

It’d be an interesting exercise to make estimates of the White participation in the actual protests & riots. I’m sure that intelligence agencies do this. Let’s say for argument, 50% in the big cities. Let us assume, per Z, that these retards are radical, left-wing whites, most likely from affluent families. What more can we infer? Here’s a couple items: these young Whites may hail from rich families, but they are “losers”. Why? Because if they had any vestiges of the middle-class dream: a steady job, a wife, family, they wouldn’t be out marching with and/or acting like thugs. Another… Read more »

The phrase “losers from rich families,” doesn’t really capture the underlying cause. Many of the protestors (the pawns and shock troops, not the organizers and leaders) are actually neurologically impaired; aspergerish, autistic,paranoid, schizophrenic. I mean this in the medical sense, not just as a way of slurring or denigrating them. It’s obvious to me, just from watching close-ups of the participants.

I’ll never see eye-to-eye with people who think modern art and architecture is ugly. Sure there have been some intentionally hideous f*ck ups. But it’s not nearly the whole of it. It’s as if the Right has no concept of the need for change. For visual change, in this instance. Yeah, beauty is great. But after a few hundred years of the same classic, beautiful, “human”—buildings, art, cars, movies, music, hairstyles….you gotta ‘get weird’ with it. There’s nowhere else to go! The Western artist can’t help himself. Change is his compulsion and duty. And much of the public wants it… Read more »
