Suspicious Minds

The Panic of 1873 is one of those events that was important at the time, but gets little discussion today. One reason is it does not fit modern narratives, as the villains and victims are not familiar today. It is one of those events that just seemed to happen and all of these years later it is not clear why it happened. There are lots of possible causes, but not one obvious cause. The resulting decades long depression, however, setup the 20th century and the two great industrial wars.

Another important event that gets little attention these days is the Great Fear that preceded the French Revolution. This was a period of panic, fear and conspiracy theories that swept rural France. Rumors circulated about various plots by the King and the aristocratic classes. For reasons no one has been able to explain, the peasants became increasingly sure the First Estate was about to overthrow the Third Estate, which eventually led to the revolution.

One of the many interesting things about the Bolshevik Resolution is the parallels between it and the French Revolution. Lenin was supposedly a student of the latter, so the lessons of it informed his decisions. Whether this is true or not is like so much else about our history. No one can say for sure now. One clear parallel, however, was the fear and panic preceding the February revolution. Suddenly, no one could trust anyone, so everyone was willing to believe the most outlandish tales.

The one thread that runs through economic panics, periods of civil unrest and great social upheavals like revolutions is the collapse in trust. It is not just the trust in individuals like a king or rich people. Human societies have been dealing with dishonest rulers for a long time. Monarchs come and go and people quickly adjust. When everyone knows the problem is a man or group of men, the solution to the problem is always at hand. No man, no more problems.

Panics are different. The fear is driven by the sense that nothing can be trusted, even one’s own assessment of events. In the case of economic panics, when a big powerful bank fails, impoverishing its clients, how can one trust anything about the financial system at that point? If all of a sudden the currency loses a big chunk of its value, how can anyone trust the economic system itself? In times when the foundations of the system lose credibility, no one can trust anything in the system.

A simple example makes this clear. If in your place of work, the software system used by the company suddenly produces errors, everyone raises an alarm. Work stops until the people in charge of the software either explain why the unexpected result is, in fact, correct or they find the cause and repair it. The software system holds the business rules of the company, so when those rules appear to be to failing, the logic of the business is called into question. The users begin to panic.

The reason people panic is that trust is built on predictability and predictability relies on rules and the orderly enforcement of those rules. When the rules stop making sense or their enforcement becomes arbitrary, it becomes impossible to predict the outcome of one’s actions. When you cannot trust the rules, you cannot trust the results of your own decisions, which means you cannot trust even yourself. When people can trust nothing they are willing to believe anything.

America appears to be in one of those moments when the people are suddenly thrust into a world in which they can no longer trust anything. The extraordinary events of the last election have caused tens of millions to question the system itself. Even those who voted for Biden are coming around to the idea that it was not on the level. Now we are seeing wild claims rocketing around the internet about what is happening to various people and what is happening behind the scenes.

The new rumors and claims are a bit nutty, but the fact is this has been building for a while, going back to before the prior election. Think back and there were all sorts of rumors about Hillary Clinton. People were willing to believe them because she is a terribly corrupt person and a notorious liar. You cannot trust anything that is said by her, her associates or anyone aligned with her. Today, everyone views the system the same way we have viewed Hillary Clinton for decades.

Another interesting aspect to this time of rumor and panic is the fact that the political class has not learned from the economic class. The lesson the bankers learned from the depression of 1929 is that one tool in their arsenal had to be a form of shock and awe as they addressed the crisis. The display of power by the central bank would fill the void of trust and quell the panic. This has proven to be highly effective, as we saw with the mortgage crisis in 2008. Everyone trusted the Fed.

Looking back at the French and Russian revolutions, there were points when the ruling class could have restored some trust in themselves and the system. They had opportunities to change the dynamic and bring people back into a political process they could trust. They failed to do so, often choosing a path that further eroded what little trust the people had in them. We’re seeing similar failures today, as the ruling class carries on as if nothing is happening outside their mansions.

This is how suspicious minds become radical minds. When people get suspicious over something like the election anomalies, they are looking for an explanation from a source they want to trust. When that natural authority mocks or dismisses their suspicion, that becomes part of a new narrative to explain both the anomalies and the unexpected reaction to it. That why the rumors are flying. Suddenly, tens of millions are in the market for a new narrative to explain what they are seeing.

Just as important, tens of millions of American are moving from a mode where they think the government has bad elements to a mode where the suspect the government itself is the bad element. When public trust in the system sharply declined a generation ago, the system had a solution. Reagan channeled that distrust into a reform effort that restored trust in the system. Today, the Pretender Biden and his coterie of flunkies and door holders is channeling that distrust into conspiracies.

I’m definitely seeing a lot of people in comment sections “why vote?” but it actually happened live here in Georgia where the some Republican politico was talking about the importance of voting in the runoffs and someone got up in the audience and said “why. It’s obvious the election was stolen why should we vote ever again?” There was a lot of support among the plebs. And those ate the people that showed up to see that person talk. I think voter turn outs going to be really bad. It’s dogma and ritual falling away and something will have to… Read more »

The fact that the election was stolen means that it still matters.

White peoples’ tendency to stomp off at the first set back needs to be added to their pathological altruism and pathological honesty as reasons for their current and declining state.

But if you believe in the uniparty theory, then it doesn’t matter who wins. I believe the anti white stuff is all talk, for now… with a Republican Senate they would “block it” – with a Dem Senate the people in control will just tell them to talk about it but eventually squash the bill. Reparations and explicit anti white laws are coming in a decade but not planned for right now.

When the next election came about, the game was restarted and we were told “this” election—with the right guy—would be the game changer, the most important ever. Wash, rinse, repeat.

I have no connection to Georgia, but was completely thrilled when Big Mama Jama was defeated. And yet, here we are with shenanigans and I am having a hard time seeing how, when it really matters, there is any difference in the outcome. Maybe someone from there could at least reassure me its been worth it on the local level, but this has been a shit test for this line of thinking, and it has failed, respectfully. And I bought into that line of thinking for a long time.

And why would their vote against the fat black woman be assessed any more fairly than their vote for Donald Trump? What if the only intelligent response is to conclude that voting means absolutely nothing, because you can have no epistemological certainty that your vote was even recorded? Remember; they had elections in the Soviet Union, too.

I guess you could think of it this way – in this stage drama, the Dems are the heroes and the GOP the villains. Everyone knows its fake, but the crowds are supposed to cheer the hero, boo the villain. Even so, if the crowd boos the hero and cheers the villain (or at least votes for him) that sends a message to the actors, writers and directors.

I think what people are mad about is that the Republicans are either indifferent, or in on the steal, as appears to be the case with Kemp and Raffensberger.

I don’t believe that accelerationism is good; but at the same time, there’s no point voting for a party that won’t support your interests. If the options were either piss on my face (R) or shit on my face (D) I would just walk away and try something else, even though the piss is preferable to shit.

Don’t concede, but more voting in a rigged election is stupid on steroids and only reinforces the practice of election fraud. If the people propagating the fraud start having terrible accidents, then you will restore a healthy society in which a corrective feedback mechanism allows a return to normalcy. To date, the only casualty of massive election fraud is the death of the rule of law. All’s fair now, so make it a two-way street.

TomA has a point. Voting in a rigged system simply validates the legitimacy of the corrupt system. Your options are limited to two choices. You may continue voting in order to accumulate greater evidence of corrupt elections with the goal of persuading greater numbers to demand change. Or you may abstain in large numbers but must create alternative attacks against TPTB. Simply not voting plays into the system’s status quo and relieves them from the necessity of having to even rig elections.

I’m for voting because the alternative is giving the opposition what they want without a fight. But it can’t stop there. Fraud and corruption must be revealed at all levels.

I hope turnout for that runoff is very low for our team – that would be a sign people reject the legitimacy of the process.

I get it because they see the Republicans doing nothing about the presidential election. OTOH as a Pennsylvanian, we did our part and got robbed (Biden overcomes 3/4 mil deficit overnight yeah right), but the fact we did our job and people are still upset about it has forced the legislature to move.

Who knows if it succeeds but it wouldn’t be happening if we didn’t vote in the first place. Honestly I’m ambivalent about the whole thing. Either elections are rigged or the lawyers decide them. Either way democracy as we know it looks dead to me.

A large drop in voter turnout might be the first step in getting people to realize that voting is the problem and that the system is virtually impervious to our votes or what we want.

You can trust:
Dissident podcasts, videos, & alt-media, alt-Christians, books written before 1980, hopefully all your friends, and some family. Yeah, that stuff isn’t exactly blaring through your television screen, but I think our situation is far better than what the dissident Soviets did, for example. They only had samizdat and maybe some comrades they happened upon. There are a lot of alt-media sites popping up (and older ones getting stronger like Gab and BitChute) and communities are fairly easy to find if you know where to look. And all the J-lawyers in the world can’t stop it.

Marko,
It is good to point out the positive. Optimism is Hope’s cousin. We also need to realize it will take time to build things we can believe in and people we can trust. We don’t expect a white knight to come in and save Our people and we certainly shouldn’t expect trusted institutions and people to spring up overnight.

Community is the starting point in the long struggle. Physical locations and interpersonal relationships will take time to establish and we must begin now.

Good summary, Bile. Those aspects of Our race are a blessing and curse. They’ve made us the most successful and dynamic race to ever walk the earth. When we tried to apply them with openness to the rest of humanity they became Our Achilles’ heel. Going forward we can only retain them if we keep in mind that they can only be applied inhouse.

The Catholic Church will be fine once Francis is gone. This follows Zman’s examples of saving an institution by removing the head. And don’t believe all the media hyperventilating about pedo priests.

This brings to mind William James’s “Will to Believe” in which some propositions require belief before any evidence can be revealed for or against that proposition. The primary example used in that work relates to train car robberies. If everyone in the train believed first that all or most of the passengers would assist each other in thwarting the train robbers, then train robberies would cease to occur.

The whole point is that government is always corrupted by the sorts of people who like to control and exploit others. The goal of the Founding Fathers was not “better” government, but “less” government, and government devolved down and answerable to the locals. George Washington was celebrated, at the time, because he was not a “typical” government functionary, and wasn’t particularly interested in milking the government cow.

Talk about synchronicity.. I was thinking very much along the same lines, how the public trust is waning… then I though what if the COVID vaccines turn out to be either fakes or to have serious side effects… that would really kill any remaining trust there might be left…

PS: A fake vaccin would be a vaccin that does not really help at all. Either through vaccination effects being worse than covid effects (for most people) and/or because it only prevents mild cases which would not be deadly anyhow. I.e does not reduce the body count.

Draconian measures by the private and public sectors in enforcing receiving the vaccine will further the paranoia and distrust, and who can blame them? The trust will collapse regardless of effectiveness.

Most likely. And there is also the aspect of folks simply not getting the vaccine.

TPTB are not that bright, but very venal, clever and self-important. The goal is largely the journey itself. In a world where even actual profit-making enterprises can barely see past the next quarter, the objective is not some point in the foggy future. The point is to be the hero in the present morality play, as the players strut about in their virtuous robes. The goal is to stamp out crimethink; there need not be a glorious future. Just a supremely woke present.

B125, IMO the governors and mayors are not fishing to see how people react, they are instead aping the behaviors of their “superiors”, as a sort of audition for membership in the club of elites. The politicians, the actors, and the media are all transactional grifters, and all seek to transact their way into the good graces of their elite overlords. The open snark to the rest of us is part of the audition.

Hi Zman this is the wrong thread on which to ask but I was watching Startrek TOS yesterday and it was one of those episodes in which the “Prime Directive” of non-interference was a major plot device. In some episodes the PD seems to be a mere suggestion or guideline but in this one it seemed like a violation merited capital punishment. Se2 #23 The Omega Glory.

Your take on this doctrine of non-interference finding it’s way into popular culture when it did would be interesting. Jhm suggestion. Anon

Too many roadblocks for a two-way street. Pussy Repub politicians, too many Civnats, no media cover. Even if the Repubs could be pressured into cheating, our base is in small towns that make the kind of big city ballot stuffing impossible. The only solution I see is targeted violence (Comey, Brennan, Clapper, local ballot officials, etc. should need witness protection), but as a Christian I have a hard time advocating it.

Very timely article. The reason I said that was, this morning, the rumor mill had it ,Gina Haspell was killed in a fire fight in Germany over an election server. The server was at a CIA facility. The Army special forces (aligned with Trump) went to seize the server as it was being used to flip votes from Trump to Biden. A firefight ensued and US army troops were killed. Everything is going to be revealed and Trump is going to win the election. The conspirators will be arrested and sent to Gitmo. Trust the plan. It’s like Q. All… Read more »

Actually, the Panic of 1873 was caused, in large part, by the Great Epizootic of 1872. During that year almost every horse in the US was infected with equine influenza. While not fatal, these horses were too sick to work and business in the country ground to a standstill. Groceries and beer couldn’t be delivered, fields weren’t plowed, fire engines couldn’t leave the station. Imagine if today no truck or tractor could be operational.

Once we can admit our vote doesn’t count, and the laws do not apply except as lash upon our backs we can perhaps begin to solve the problem. Not by voting.

Not holding my breath. In this State—pretty much evenly divided between Rep’s and Dem’s—the House and Senate Rep’s have about a 1 seat majority. This is never enough. Been 20 years now and if the Dem’s hold solid on just about any issue, like the budget, there are *always* 2-3 Rep’s who will side with them. I suspect the traitorous, spineless Rep’s here are little different than over there. Dem’s maintain Party discipline, the Rep’s rarely do—guess who’s winning?

“Looking back at the French and Russian revolutions, there were points when the ruling class could have restored some trust in themselves and the system. They had opportunities to change the dynamic and bring people back into a political process they could trust. They failed to do so, often choosing a path that further eroded what little trust the people had in them. We’re seeing similar failures today, as the ruling class carries on as if nothing is happening outside their mansions.” Prior to French and Russian revolutions, ruling class was autocratic.
