Everyone Believes It

The mostly online wars over what has come to be called “woke culture” obscures a reality that lies behind the fads and programs. That reality is an ideology that evolved in the last century and now defines the ruling class of America in a way that the people in the ruling class do not understand. It is just an assumed part of the culture they were selected into and conditioned to accept. They believe what they believe because everyone they know believes it.

That ideology begins with egalitarianism that has its roots in Protestantism and eventually gave birth to the progressive movement. The claim that all men are equal in the eyes of God became simply all men are equal once God was dropped from the thinking of the ruling elites. Since all men are obviously not equal, the blank slate evolved as a solution to this dilemma. The inequality we see is the result of society, so the great and the good have a duty to fix it.

What many now call the civil rights revolution is the most recent and damaging manifestation of this urge to level society. In his pamphlet on the landmark Supreme Court decision, Brown versus Board of Education, professor Jesse Merriam explained how this case revolutionized the law by transforming the Constitution from a rights based political system to a civil rights political system. What is now called antiracism is actually the point of our political order.

This interview with Merriam is interesting for a number of reasons. One is the exchange he had with the interviewer over the case of an Alabama eatery that had separate seating for whites and blacks. The interviewer tries hard to get Merriam to say the restaurant should be allowed to set its own policies, even if these policies violate what is, in reality, the ruling dogma of this age. It is a long game of verbal chess as Merriam deftly avoids the trap set for him by the interviewer.

That exchange is a good example of the prevailing orthodoxy at work. The interviewer, most likely without thinking about it, tries to get the interviewee to say he would tolerate discrimination, which is the chief sin of this age. The interviewee, knowing this, carefully avoids stating this by refocusing the discussion on the legal dynamics behind the court case that arose from this situation. Imagine this going on in elite offices every day and you get a sense for how ideology rules our elites.

The case in question, Katzenbach v. McClung, is another good example. The restaurant did business only in Alabama so it should never have been subjected to the interstate commerce clause and therefore immune from the new civil rights provisions recently enshrined in federal law. The court acknowledged this, but then imagined a scenario in which the restaurant bought goods that at some point originated out of state, so therefore it was now subject to federal regulation.

What the court did was reason that since the primary evil against which the Constitution stands is discrimination, it is logically impossible for any part of the Constitution to stand against overcoming discrimination. Whatever “the words on the paper” say, as Barak Obama once put it, they can never be read to oppose what is now assumed to be the spirit and point of the document. Belief and righteous commitment to that belief are now the litmus test of the ruling class across all domains.

We are about to see the flipside of the civil right revolution in the federal case launched against the Sheetz store chain. The feds are quite open about the fact that they do not think the store is using race to discriminate. In fact, they are not even claiming the policy is leading to fewer black employees than what would happen without the policy against hiring convicts. They simply say it could happen, because of upstream discrimination in the criminal justice system and the economy.

This strikes normal people as madness, and it is madness, the madness that naturally arises from ideology. The ethical model of the world that arises from the belief that all men are equal must inevitably target reality as the ultimate obstacle to achieving the promised goal of the ideology. It is why ideologues always end up in a life and death struggle with the reality of the human condition. It is also why they usually kill a lot of people before reality finally defeats them.

It will not be long before the zombies that dominate the late-night comedy circuit begin to make jokes about Sheetz not hiring blacks. Jon Stewart is now practicing his funny faces in the mirror to go along with his new Sheetz material. This provides the social proof needed so that everyone in the managerial class will adopt this assertion as a part of their shared reality. No one will think of the lunacy at the heart of it because there is no benefit to questioning the belief.

This ties back to that exchange between Klingenstein and Merriam over the choice involving the Alabama restaurant. There was nothing but danger for Merriam in defending the ancient right of free association. For Klingenstein, there was nothing but accolades awaiting him for defending antiracism. The cult of antiracism that arose from egalitarianism selects for those who are loyal to the cause and weeds out those who question the logic of the cause or its underlying assumptions.

This is why we have a ruling class that seems to be at war with not just the culture and traditions of America but at war with reality itself. The American ruling elite has evolved to serve the needs of the civil rights revolution and what Professor Merriam calls the antiracist constitution. Happening as it has over generations, the people in it are unable to see that they are operating within an ideological framework. They believe what they believe because everyone they know believes it.

Ancient Greek speaks about guardians, and the way to remove inferiority is removing inferior people
Confucius said the same thing with different tones, which some people deserve treated as nobleman and some people deserve treated as serfs

Only bible asserts all people must be treated as equal, strangely this concluded that out-group accepted as in-group
So it doesn’t matter what belief that western establishment had, its desert people bullshit anyway

St. Augustine on Galatians 3:28:

Difference of race or condition or sex is indeed taken away by the unity of faith, but it remains imbedded in our mortal interactions, and in the journey of this life the apostles themselves teach that it is to be respected, and they even proposed living in accord with the racial differences between Jews and Greeks as a wholesome rule.

From the Merriam interview: “We know from the expert report submitted in the Harvard case that if Harvard were to accept only the top decile of applicants based solely on objective academic factors, Harvard’s student body would be only 0.76% black. Today, with the use of affirmative action, Harvard is roughly 15% black (as compared to 13% of the population). Just about no one—and certainly not anyone with the power to make decisions on these issues—would support forcing Harvard to adopt an admissions policy that would make it less than 1% black. As a result, even the critics of affirmative… Read more »

What a lot of people don’t know is that in a strictly meritocratic system at the Ivy League, the big winners wouldn’t be Asians, it would be White gentiles, as White gentiles are the ones giving up all the slots to affirmative action, and to legacy/nepotism Jews.

Is it possible that the prestige of Harvard is draining so quickly that these token negros are gaining nothing especially worthwhile by attending? Think of how much prestige the Ivys have lost just in the last 4 years. By the time these negros “graduate,” there may be very little of it left. Only respected by their fellow Ivys perhaps, and not the older ones.

For about twenty years, Republicans had entirely stopped talking about “affirmative action”—until it was recently reframed as discrimination against Asians, a thing they thought they could safely oppose, because they’re suckers. It was such a “beta” move, it snapped Westernized Asians out of their normal ethnic rivalry with white people into a genocidal hatred for us. Well played, conservatives.

Ironic choice of words: “level” as a verb can mean: In today’s use, of course it means, “to equalize, to smooth such that no person, place or thing is lower or higher than another.” But more ominously, it might mean “to point a weapon” or “to demolish, as a building or city.” Yes indeed, sometimes ideologues succeed, for a time, in making everything “level.” Problem is that the result often resembles a salt or tidal flat: a planar landscape stretching from horizon to horizon, where nothing grows, no distinguishing feature allowed. “Ashes and diamonds, foe and friend, we were all… Read more »

Didn’t do much for Allan Bakke (1978) in CA and his denial for admission to med school, nor anyone other White applying to med school.

Why? Because, they simply worked around the specifics of the case and left it up to the Courts to again find anti-White discrimination in (new and improved) admissions considerations. We were all fooled then, but not any more.

The Bakke story is quite interesting. Alan Bakke eventually got admitted to med school and became a successful physician.

Patrick Chavis, a Negro who was (originally) admitted with inferior qualifications in Bakke’s place, became an abortionist and a liposuctionist, and had his license revoked for negligence, incompetence, malpractice, and causing the deaths of patients — but not before winning $1 million in a “racial discrimination” lawsuit.

He died at age 50 when he was shot to death in the ‘hood.

Good essay. This side of things has a real blind spot when it comes to the amount of clown world that has deep roots in Christian universalism. It’s not uncommon to read on DR type sites that “if we could just put white, Christian, patriarchal men back in charge, that would be the end of the honking!”, which conveniently ignores who was holding the levers of power during early stages of the circus(women didn’t give themselves the power to vote).

Jewish Influence in Christian Reform Movements:

In his work, Rabbi Newman documents the struggle between Christianity and Judaism. The Rabbi also includes information on Jewish Influence in fomenting the Protestant revolt against the Catholic Church, which led to the freeing of Jews from Church strictures and mainstreaming them into the political and social life of Christendom, particularly in Protestant countries. Newman even takes up the topic of Jewish influence in Puritan New England. All in all, this is an important book for those wishing to understand the mutual antipathies which have beset Christians and Jews.

We really did bring it on ourselves in my thinking. As European ingenuity increased living standards in the West, fewer and fewer people were reliant on Christian charity for their basic needs. Christians still needed an outlet for the charity that they are commanded to do, though. Voila, it starts making sense to start considering whether it is charitable to give away things that would be closer to the top of Maslow’s hierarchy(civil rights, disparate impact, etc.), and/or start sending the nation’s wealth abroad to places like Africa that just can’t get it’s shit together despite being fellow Christians.

Your point is well made, but for ultra-valuable professions, sometimes finesse is required. Although I’m not “in the industry,” I recall the following example: On the surface, if you were a personnel manager or someone else in authority, if you discovered one of your employees had developed a bad drug habit your first instinct might be to at the least fire him, or worse, have him charged with felonies. But what if the employee in question is a pharmacist, an anesthesiologist or some other extremely talented individual? Absent other major faults instead great effort goes into drug rehab or other… Read more »

Second chances are fine with appropriate rehabilitation, but you’ve not noted (IMO) a comparable profession/occupation. Your examples can wind up with a dead patient or so. ATC incompetence winds up with a full morgue. The only other immediate occupation I could come up with is a high ranking military officer in charge of troops in battle. Perhaps another example was the Florida condo collapse a few years ago. Seems a lot of inspectors “missed the boat” wrt condemning the building.

The insanity can only continue as long as the plates keep spinning. In other words, because most Americans still enjoy a standard of living that is the envy of the planet, they remain docile in the face of men competing in women’s sports. Prolonged affluence has made them too comfortable and too lazy. And grousing too often substitutes for genuine action because no one wants to sacrifice the easy life for a problem outside the suburbs. But how much longer can the plates keep spinning when the Federal government is printing a trillion dollars of fake money every 100 days?… Read more »

And there you touch upon the essence of planning for death. In this State it’s easy to leave things through beneficiaries—equally—including your home. But as soon as that breaks down, like mom wanting to give special things to daughters and granddaughters, you best get it in writing, or do so before death.

In the end, “failure to plan” is not just “planning to fail”, but possibly planning to *destroy* family cohesiveness and relationship. Your entire life’s work is in that genotype you’ve shared among family. They need all the *help* they can get in this crazy world.

The key is here to understand the nature of crime and punishment. I do not profess to be an expert, but much of the problem seems to me to be a general misunderstanding of the process (finality) of punishment.

We seem to think that a prison term (if that, most get probation) is the entirety of the punishment and that folks who get out of jail *deserve* to be treated like everyone else. Really?

“Now, with young whites down to 60% of the population, the numbers don’t add up.”

Under 50%. IIRC, it was some time around 2010 that White births dropped below 50%. But that’s just births. That doesn’t include all the young people invading the US. I’m pretty sure Gen-Z is majority non-white.

“Now that they were moving into the 21st century, it will collapse in practice, though people will still mouth its canon.”

I think it will keep going in such a way that justifies discriminating against Whites. Our new diverse overlords are being conditioned to absolutely hate White people.

Yes, the Civil Rights facade is coming down. It was always a hate whitey crusade. And they won. Now, it’s more of an apartheid system of discrimination against whites, though the opposite in terms of segregation, i.e., whites are forced to live around non-whites as opposed to whites not allowing non-whites to live around whites. The question is whether whites will ever wake up. So far, no great sign of it, though there are green shoots. Whites have noticed that they’re being discriminated against but instead of fighting back as a group either through forming white political organization or creating… Read more »

Agreed. I failed to tie up my point in an earlier reply, but something happened last week that gives a clue as to where this is heading. A typical low IQ, emotional Sub-Saharan imbecile in Congress, Jasmine Crockett, was ridiculed last week when she suggested blacks not pay taxes as a form of reparations. Attention should be paid since she is far too stupid not to say the quiet part aloud. Also note this concept has been floated in California and may have become law already in San Francisco. No, blacks don’t pay very much in taxes, but whites do… Read more »

Let’s imagine the dubious proposition that AINO survives in its current form (although not substance) another 25 years. Between Silent and Boomer deaths, the tiny White/White birth rate, increasing miscegenation and immigration, plus the larger non-White birth rate, Whites of European Christian ancestry will be down to perhaps 30% of the population, compared to today’s approximately 55% (officially 57.9, minus Jews, Persians, Lebanese, various ‘whiter’ Latinos and subcontinentals).

No rebuttal here, but I would point out that Blacks in this country have never exceed 13% of the population.

The silliness of the everyone is equal and anti-racism cult could only exist in the bubble of the late 20th century. What? The first Civil Rights Act was passed in 1874. The Supremes upheld the destruction of property rights in the Civil Rights Cases (1883), imagining that discrimination in taverns, inns, boarding houses, etc., violated the 14th Amendment. And, of course, Plessy v. Ferguson (1894) gave us “separate but equal.” I’m somewhat sympathetic to the argument that legislative history of the 14th Amendment (1868) strongly suggests it was intended to apply only to government discrimination, yet most of the chowderheads… Read more »

In defense of my forebears, it actually wasn’t easily won. The South’s Ruling Class collaborated and used economic sanction and financial ruin against their inferiors, yet it still took fifteen-plus years for them to be able to declare victory (1978 or thereabouts). It was called “mass resistance” for a reason.

The methods used then are the template used today: firings, deplatforming, economic sanctions, and so forth. People are softer now, of course, but it isn’t a given they can be quickly brought to heel.

For example, down the line we may see more and more decisions made —either administratively or by the courts—that conviction of one type of crime or another does not quality for dismissal of the applicant for any particular employment opportunity at Sheetz. Does Sheetz now have to examine the details of each applicants conviction record to justify their rejection decision?

“This is why we have a ruling class that seems to be at war with not just the culture and traditions of America but at war with reality itself. The American ruling elite has evolved to serve the needs of the civil rights revolution and what Professor Merriam calls the antiracist constitution. Happening as it has over generations, the people in it are unable to see that they are operating within an ideological framework. They believe what they believe because everyone they know believes it.” The US upper class and upper middle class is at a remove of many levels… Read more »

How is what you’re stating any different then people who believe the stock market is fairly valued? It’s up something like 16,000 points since 2019. Why? I know the answer why, but eyes glaze over when you try to explain it to people who don’t wanna believe it. Without rules that everyone agrees on and adheres to, whatever gets me the most is right. Or might makes right, or whatever.

“It’s up something like 16,000 points since 2019. Why?”

Efficiency? Productivity? New inventions? New products? Obviously not.

We are in a “pump and dump” market. The dump will make the ’08 Collapse and the end of Bretton Woods look like the typical shortened trading day before the 4th of July.

The trillion dollar question is not WHY but WHEN?

Because everyone’s equal, coming soon will be the federal leviathan preventing companies from moving their grocery and pharmacy stores out of black and latino areas. The American taxpayer will just have to make up the difference in the losses due to rampant theft in those areas. The reasoning will be that the criminality and dysfunction of the minorities somehow stems from Whitey anyway, so shut up and pay.

Outside of entertainment and a couple of sports, blacks have brought nothing to the table that America couldn’t have done without – and we could have done without those as well. Civil rights were supposedly going to free the black population to be the best they could be, on par with Whites – instead, it unleashed the jungle on American society and culture. This ant-racism cult is driving us over the cliff – separation of some sort will be the only answer. – not only from pocs, but the zombie Whites who lap that crap up.

Well stated. Like someone much wiser than myself once stated here – there is no force on earth more destructive than the negro. They level everything they touch. Remove the negros and the vast portion of western man’s problems simply vanish.

Kind of the same way feminism brought us increased sluttery. It’s because many women, when unleashed, or “empowered,” turns out they don’t have anything else to offer.

Exactly. It’s most sad. Good looks fade with time, especially poignant when you consider there’s always a younger follow on generation you are competing with. Women were told to abandon their most precious commodity, motherhood—and the making of harth, home, family, while enjoying the least valuable, sex.

Even if it can be said that blacks are better are some sport that whites, I simply don’t care. I don’t think my life has been enriched by blacks in any way whatsoever. They were, are and will remain a terrific burden on society, because nature; that’s just how it is. Civil rights were supposedly going to free the black population to be the best they could be,… Read more »

OrangeFrog: That’s exactly what is was intended as – a punishment for Whites who didn’t immediately and wholeheartedly welcome Moishe into the bank and the country club. The Jews founded all the supposedly black civil rights organizations. They were the lawyers and accountants for all the activists, back then just as today. Some of them got high on their own supply and married and bred with them. And now, when I look at what’s happening on campuses, I laugh. I have no sympathy for the Palestinians – not my people, not my problem. No way do I want them here.… Read more »

The US was instrumental in setting up the still extant countries named Liberia and Israel. Perhaps some day all the “appropriate” races will be returned to their appointed homelands, still waiting for them for 169 or 76 years, respectively.

From the interview listed: > And in those isolated instances in which the federal government would not have the authority to go after localized discrimination, private forces and local authorities would be recruited to pick up the slack. That is how our system was designed to work. These guys talk a tough game, but always buckle. What he’s basically saying is for the federal government to strong-arm local authorities to do what they want. This is arguably worse than what we have now. He might think this is a tactical thing to make what he is saying easier to sell,… Read more »

“Racism” (only from whites ti nonwhites) is the greatest sin in the current orthodoxy. Therefore it is hard to be anymore dissident than to reject the power of the accusation “racist” because it means to dissent against their brain plagues. The term racist must entirely lose its power

It has gone on to morph into other forms. For example, there is now racist math, birds, sunlight – you name it. Every single shortcoming of feral blacks can be explained away by racism – if not from evil Whites then God himself.

All manner of men believe in this concept that is less than a hundred years old: racism From high power lawyers and businessmen to rednecks. It’s incredible. I have an American moral theology manual for Catholic priests from the 1950s that not only makes no mention of the r word, but lists the prohibitions of marrying different races in different states, so that the priest doesn’t accidentally go against miscegenation laws, laws that now even the most conservative of normies would say is racist to the core. How is that possible? There is no way to spin this as a… Read more »

I agree completely with Zman’s well-thought-out position, and would like to pose the rhetorical question: what makes it all possible? What is the root of the evil? The answer is television. TV got going around 1950 in New York City and from the beginning it was clear that it was something special. When actors on the very local TV programs would walk down Manhattan streets, apartment windows would rattle up and dwellers would have conversations with the actors as if they were friends. That is what television has evolved into: the friendship box turned on in your home 30 hours… Read more »

With the narrow, three-network choices on TV then, it’s not surprising that Boomers, who grew up on a steady, unrelenting stream of J-programming, generally have a mindset that’s ossified and hard to budge. The internet busted things wide open. Not as wide open as we’d like, but compared to 1972, it’s vastly different. The mainstream channels like Netflix, Showtime, CNN, etc are still churning out the egalitarian views, but outside of that, opposing voices are growing. I recently found out there are apps you can add to Roku, both Odysee and Rumble, making it easy to view dissident content on… Read more »

But the rot has spread beyond the Boomers to all the generations and is only cascading, metastasizing. TV now sets the standard for the entire culture. The liberal writers have grown like a swarm and migrated to cable and streaming. It’s an absolutely devastating, absolutely effective loop.

And at the same time, opposition to the rot is growing. Polling is shows that trusting the mainstream media is down, lower among young people, who are also more likely to doubt the official holocaust narrative.

Let’s be mindful of recency bias. The Protestors’ egalitarianism metastisized into a new, aggressive tumor about 150 years before invention of the first crude version of television during the 1920’s. The critical publication is a separatist document called the Declaration of Independence—a diatribe packed with unwarranted assumptions, a double standard, and sanctimonious claptrap. Just eleven years later some imperialists published a populist constitution which begins with a BIG lie. During the following decades, long before TV, there was agitating literary trash like Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Lincoln’s war was followed quickly by amendments XIV and XV in 1868 and 1870, respectively.… Read more »
