the white people problem – narcissism

We have a white people problem. The problem with white people isn’t self-hatred. It’s narcissism.

It’s not that white people hate themselves or think they’re evil. They think they’re the most enlightened and virtuous people ever to walk the Earth. They’re so enlightened that they’ve created the most fabulous religion in history, the religion of self love. They’ve created the Church of Virtue Signalling and it’s so much better than all those awful old religions, many of which include irritating things like rules and morality. The Church of Virtue Signalling doesn’t need any of that. All it requires is Virtue Signalling. It’s Justification by Virtue Signalling alone.

A while back Godfrey Elfwick rather memorably trolled Chelsea Clinton, claiming that his career as a political activist began at the age of two as the leader of Babies Against Bedtime. As so often Godfrey was eerily close to the mark. Modern political activism for white people essentially is Babies Against Bedtime. It’s spoilt rich children throwing their toys out of their pram. Because when you’re two years old throwing your toys out of the pram seems very clever. This will teach Mummy a lesson. Unfortunately white people no longer seem to grow out of this phase.

John Lennon ends the Vietnam War

It’s not as if these privileged white people actually think white people are inferior. Quite the reverse. They’re quite happy to bomb the crap out of non-white people, mostly for offending their tender sensibilities. If only those non-white people would learn to do what they’re told! Don’t they realise how virtuous university-educated middle-class white people are?

And so these white people gave us the modern Left. What distinguishes the Modern Left is not politics, but the absence of politics. This is a political movement for people whose political comprehension is on the level of the average twelve-year-old’s understanding of the world. It’s not politics, it’s applied narcissism. These are people who don’t have the stomach for an actual political struggle, even if they understood actual politics which they don’t. They don’t want a political struggle because such political struggles are hard work, and often dangerous. And politics is so confusing! We know capitalism is evil and the Left is virtuous but it’s capitalism that finances the modern Left. This is upsetting and confusing. Best not to think about it. Best not to think at all. Narcissism means never having to think.

The  patron saint of narcissism is John Lennon, that most hypocritical and empty-headed of white celebrities. You remember John Lennon, the man who ended the Vietnam War by refusing to get out of bed. That was Lennon’s idea of a political struggle. Ideal for fat lazy people who don’t want to get hurt.

Identity politics is great for white people because it’s the negation of politics. It’s pure Virtue Signalling. It requires no thought whatsoever. You don’t even have to worry about other people’s feelings. You just need to worry about your own feelings. Luckily that’s what narcissists like to do. We live in a society in which white people do nothing but indulge their narcissism.

White people live in a post-political age. Feminists used to say that the personal is the political. How right they were. What they didn’t get was that when the personal is the political then politics ends. Only narcissism remains.

the law exists for the purpose of social control

One positive thing that might emerge from the recent events in Charlottesville is a realisation by those on the dissident right that the police are not only not our allies, they cannot even be relied upon to be neutral. They are firmly in the enemy camp.

The truth, which mainstream conservatives have never been able to accept, is that the law exists for the purpose of social control. The police and the courts do not exist in order to serve justice. They are there to preserve the existing social order. Conservatives live in a fantasy land in which law and order is a conservative value. It isn’t. The law serves the existing social order, whatever that might be. Policemen and judges are not inherently conservative. No communist regime has ever had a problem recruiting police and judges loyal to the regime.

And the existing social order today is firmly and unequivocally liberal. Liberals are the establishment. Liberals like to pretend that they are the brave rebels battling the evil conservative establishment but nothing could be further from the truth.

Policemen and judges also have a very strong loyalty to those who pay their salaries and their pensions. They are therefore instinctively and fanatically loyal to the government. Whatever their personal views might be they know who pays their salaries.

And the police and the courts are now ideologically committed to the liberal establishment as well. Conservatives need to abandon their delusion that the average cop is sympathetic to conservative values. Liberals have not only captured the bureaucracy, the media, academia and the schools they have also captured the police. The average cop actually believes that the alt-right is made up of dangerous violent Nazis. They have been indoctrinated to believe this and they are no more immune to propaganda than anyone else. They see us as the enemy.

The law has always existed in order to protect the interests of those in power. The law is there to protect the government, not to protect ordinary people. It has always been this way.

It might also be time to abandon any fantasies we might have about the military being made up of natural conservatives, but that’s possibly a subject for a future post.

the social function of the church

Churches in the modern world are irrelevant. They’re just social clubs. They perform no useful social function. They exist in order to provide a warm fuzzy feeling of self-righteousness and niceness. 
This might seem paradoxical since churches today appear to be obsessively concerned with their social rôle. This is an illusion. They are serving the liberal agenda, not a Christian agenda. They are merely acting as another propaganda arm of the state. They are serving the state and the corporate interests that control our society. They do not promote Christian values. They promote the values that the state and the corporate interests wish to impose on us. They have abdicated their actual social rôle.
Churches are not guided by scripture or by their own teachings. They are guided by opinion polls and by the media. They have become political entities (it’s a major feature of our society that every aspect of life is politicised). The churches do not lead. They follow. They follow the power and the money. 
They decided back in the mid-20th century that they needed to become more relevant. In fact they’ve become entirely irrelevant. They’re not much more than a branch of the entertainment industry. They sell good feelings.
The churches have abandoned actual religion and they have abdicated their function of providing a moral framework by which to live. They promote whatever values happen to be popular, which are of course the values of the state and corporate interests.
Christianity has become a purely personal thing. The churches have forgotten that they have a rôle to play in promoting an actual Christian society. If a religion does not provide a moral framework by which to live then it’s difficult to see what purpose it does serve, other than making people feel smug and self-righteous.

There are still Christians who desire to follow Christianity as an actual religion but there is no place for such people within modern institutional Christianity.

freedom of speech and ideological warfare

Those with conservative leanings (and especially those with cuckservative leanings) put great store in freedom of speech. The trouble with this is that it’s essentially a defensive strategy. It means accepting the liberal paradigm, and then begging for permission to express the occasional dissenting viewpoint. It’s tantamount to asking to be allowed to argue for minor adjustments to a system that is corrupt to the core.
What we’re seeing is a clash of ideologies. It’s an ideological war to the death.
We need to forget freedom of speech and other liberal fetishes, all of which are basically misguided Enlightenment nonsense. We need to attack the entire structure of liberalism. The objective should not be freedom of speech, which is merely the right to write indignant letters to The Times. The objective should be to replace the entire liberal paradigm.
Conservatives like to argue that a healthy democracy depends on tolerance of noxious opinions. This is nonsense. For half a century we have tolerated noxious viewpoints such as feminism, the absurd notion that homosexuality is natural and healthy and the even more ludicrous notion that “gender” is a social construct (in fact gender is merely a grammatical term – people don’t have gender). We have tolerated these poisonous views and they have destroyed our civilisation. Societies that tolerate noxious viewpoints are doomed societies.
The truth is not a matter of opinion. It’s not like expressing a preference for French food in preference to Italian food. That there are profound differences between men and women is not an opinion. It is a fact. That homosexuality is unnatural and unhealthy is not an opinion. It is a fact. That biological sex is unchangeable is not a matter of opinion. It is reality.

Freedom of speech is and always will be a recipe for chaos and societal breakdown. It’s a refuge for those who don’t have sufficient confidence in the truth, and for those who don’t understand the nature of ideological warfare.

why feminism is fundamentally wrong

In the light of the discussion that my previous post, the myth of moderate feminism, kicked off I feel I should clarify my views on feminism.
Feminism is not like political ideologies such as communism or fascism or even liberalism, all of which are based on ideas that have some merit. Those ideologies do not work in practice but they are not inherently unreasonable. It is possible to engage with such ideologies on rational grounds. Feminism is not like that.
Feminism is based on ideas that are entirely false, mistaken and inherently unworkable and unreasonable. Thinking that it’s possible to engage with feminism in a rational manner is like thinking that it’s possible to engage in a rational manner with Flat Earthers.
Feminism is based on a belief that the differences between men and women are so insignificant that they can, and should, be made to disappear. This is entirely false. The differences between men and women are fundamental and profound. Men and women do not see the world the same way. Male intelligence and female intelligence are different. The emotional differences between the sexes are profound. Women are ruled by their emotions to a much greater degree than men. These are not weaknesses. If men and women stick to their traditional sex roles these differences are assets, not liabilities. 
Men and women differ in their experience of sex and their approach to sex. Men can to a large degree separate sex from emotion. Women in general cannot. For a man a one night stand is about sex. For a woman it is not purely about sex. 
The demands that feminists originally made sounded reasonable, but they were not reasonable because they were based on a complete misunderstanding of both men and women. The demand for equal pay was absurd. Women do not do the same work as men. This is partly because there are jobs that are suitable for men and other jobs that are suitable for women, and women have no desire to do many of the highly paid jobs that men do. Many of these jobs are highly paid because they are dangerous and unpleasant. Women do not want to do jobs that are dangerous and unpleasant.
Women should not receive the same pay as men because it is the duty of men to provide for their wives and children. A man needs to be paid enough to enable him to support a family. This is not the role of women.
Feminist wanted women to have equal access to higher education. Higher education is very expensive and it is not efficient to spend a fortune educating a woman for a profession that she will most probably practise on a part-time basis and with lengthy gaps for child-rearing. Women in general do not require expensive higher education.
A woman’s role is mainly to be a wife and mother. Feminists have managed to devalue these roles, which has been tragic for women.
The feminist demand for an end to the sexual “double standard” was equally wrong-headed. The double standard was there to protect women. Women face more serious consequences from living a promiscuous lifestyle. The idea that those consequences cannot be evaded by means of contraception and abortion is false – the contraceptive pill has severe health consequences and abortion has serious emotional consequences. Promiscuity is harmful for both men and women, but it is more harmful to women. The sexual double standard was simply a recognition of reality.
Feminism is also based on a deep hostility to femaleness. Feminists worship masculinity. They believe that women are worthless unless they turn themselves into pretend men.
Traditional sex roles existed because everyone used to understand that men and women were different. The things that make men happy are not the things that make women happy.
Feminism is an ideology that is based entirely on false premises. There is nothing reasonable about it. It’s wrong all the way through. It’s wrong for women. It has made women angry, dissatisfied and miserable. It needs to be rejected in its entirety.
