The New Ideology

Things might be getting worse at the moment but at least they’re becoming clearer. It is obvious that a powerful New Ideology has emerged and it is firmly in the driver’s seat.

To try to understand this new ruling ideology is terms of left/right, liberal/conservative, socialist/capitalist is futile. To see things in terms of globalist/nationalist doesn’t really help all that much either. The New Ideology is all of these things, and none of them. The New Ideology does not yet have a name and that’s one of the problems.

It doesn’t have a name but at least we can see some of the main pillars that support the edifice. The first of these is Big Business. Big business has provided the funding and big business calls the shots. The most sacred principle of the New Ideology is that the interests of big business come first. This is not capitalism as most people have always understood the term.

The second pillar is Big Government. This is a logical consequence of the first pillar. Big government is a nightmare for small and medium sized businesses. Government regulations and government interference make it almost impossible for small and medium sized businesses to survive, but they have no effect on big business – big corporations simply hire an army of lawyers and accountants to deal with such problems. Small and medium sized businesses cannot afford to do this so they go under. This is not an unfortunate unintended side-effect – as far as big business is concerned this is one of the chief attractions of big government. Big business just loves big government.

But there is a minor potential problem. Big business needs big government. Big government does not need big business. The Soviet Union had big government without big business. So one of the mot crucial elements of the New Ideology is that government must be firmly under the control of big business. That sounds tricky but it isn’t. All you need to do is to buy the government. If you own the politicians and senior bureaucrats they do what you tell them to do.

The unholy alliance of big business and big government provides a complete monopoly of power, money and influence. It allows a degree of social control that Stalin could only dream about. And there’s no need for the government to establish an official Thought Police (which might be just a bit too blatant for comfort). Big business is only too happy to do the thought policing for them, through its control of both traditional media and social media.

This is the strictly economic side to the New Ideology, but there’s more to it than that. The third pillar of the New Ideology is hostility to religion. The fourth pillar is hostility to the family. It’s not difficult to understand these two pillars. Both religion and the family provide an alternative source of influence and power and an alternative focus of loyalty. Thus both must be destroyed. It is important to understand that while Christianity has been the main target for the past half century or so the intention is that all religions will be destroyed.

It is crucial to understand that none of this is Marxism. In fact it started as a defensive reaction against Marxism. It was motivated by fear of Marxism. The fear was that one day the control exercised by the rich and powerful might slip. If that happened then based on a study of historical precedents there was going to be a very high likelihood that a lot of rich people would be lined up against the wall and shot. It was considered necessary to ensure that this would never happen. The New Ideology is a kind of anti-Marxism.

being both a victim and an oppressor

A comment to my previous post noted that “SJWs have plenty of historical and even contemporary stuff to portray East Asians as victims.”

This raises a really interesting point, particularly in regard to America. East Asians in the United States certainly get victim privileges. Given that on average they’re doing better than white people that might seem strange, but if massively privileged white female college students can portray themselves as victims and can get away with it then anyone can do it.

On the other hand when South Koreans, Japanese or Chinese are living in their own nations they suddenly cease to be victims. Suddenly they become oppressors because they aren’t diverse enough. The liberal media whines about Japan’s refusal to replace its Japanese population with a properly diverse population of non-Japanese. China gets the same treatment. The South Koreans have already embraced national suicide (their birth rate is so low that within half a century there won’t be any South Koreans to worry about) so they are not given such a hard time.

This is all part of the weird mix of outrageous racism and grovelling antiracism that characterises modern America. A Chinese person in the U.S. is a victim of white racism and colonialism, but China is a threat to America’s world domination so China as a nation is regarded with suspicion and fear.

It’s pretty much the same with Islam. Muslims in the U.S. are a protected victim class and are therefore virtuous. But Muslim nations refuse to accept American world domination (or more to the point Muslim nations are an inconvenience to Israel) so Muslim nations need to be bombed back into the Stone Age. Muslims in their own countries are evil. Muslims are only good when they live in other people’s countries.

Of course it goes further than this. To white American liberals blacks are sacred – as long as those white liberals don’t have to live in the same neighbourhoods as blacks or send their kids to schools with blacks.

One can’t help getting the feeling that American antiracism is pure hypocrisy. Which of corse would explain why Americans get so strident on the subject.

East Asia and the globalist agenda

If you’re white it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the globalists and SJWs simply hate white people and want to destroy all white nations. It is of course quite true that they hate white people and that they seek to destroy white nations but there’s more to it than that.

In fact the globalists and SJWs hate anyone who has a successful high-functioning society. Such societies are a serious threat to the globalist agenda. East Asians also have very successful very well-functioning societies, therefore to the globalist mind East Asians must be as evil as white people. No successful high-functioning societies can be permitted to survive.

Everyone must be either a victim or an oppressor. Since East Asians are clearly not victims, therefore they must be oppressors.

It’s fairly obvious that the globalists have East Asians marked down for cultural destruction.

This means that theoretically at least whites and East Asians should be able to form an alliance against the globalists. There are many reasons why this hasn’t happened and may not happen. It does remain a possibility, and it’s a possibility that perhaps should be explored by European and North American nationalists.

culture war, to the death

It’s now obvious that the objective of the globalist/liberal/SJW elites is not to achieve complete political dominance. Their objectives go way beyond that. They are aiming at nothing less than the total destruction of all opposition. They are aiming at zero tolerance for dissent.

We can forget the idea of live and let live. We can forget the idea that once we have been stripped of every vestige of power and influence and completely humiliated and subjugated that we might at least be allowed to live our lives in peace in our own way. That is not going to happen. If you dissent in any way from the new orthodoxy, if you are a social conservative or a Christian or even an old-fashioned leftist who is critical of capitalism, if you a liberal who thinks things have gotten out of hand, if you question orthodoxy in any way you are marked for destruction. For our new masters it is not enough to defeat their political and ideological enemies. Those enemies must be entirely eliminated.

If you have some fantasy that as long as you keep your head down you will be able to live your life your own way or raise your children in your own way think again. It is not just open dissent that is forbidden. It is forbidden to have doubts. It is forbidden to have any reservations about political orthodoxy.

The culture war was lost because most people on the Right didn’t think it was worth fighting because they didn’t think it really mattered. They failed to recognise that as far as the globalist/liberal/SJWs were concerned the culture war was going to be a fight to the death.

It is simply not possible for Christians or for social conservatives to share a society with liberals. Maybe there was a time when some kind of compromise might have been possible. Personally I doubt it, but I admit the possibility. In any case there is no question that at this point in time there can be no compromise, no peace. Either we destroy them or they destroy us.

SJWs and globalists – who actually pulls the strings?

The culture war is a war that was launched by powerful vested interests but they are not the ones who actually fought the war. The bankers and billionaires and senior deep state functionaries (the globalists who could be described as the Inner Party) left the conduct of the war largely to journalists, academics, politicians and so-called activists. These were the Social Justice foot soldiers. They could be described as the Outer Party.

It was an arrangement that worked very well. The globalists wanted to ensure that populations were demoralised and easily controlled, with no loyalties and no stable beliefs. They wanted willing consumers, and compliant cheap labour. They therefore wanted traditional institutions such as the family and the churches destroyed. Their SJW foot soldiers were eager to oblige.

So far so good. The one minor problem is the quality of the human material from which the SJW foot soldiers are drawn. Feminists, homosexuals, transgenders, environmentalists – these people are fundamentally unstable. Many are in fact mentally ill. This phenomenon is one that Spandrell has addressed in his recent extremely stimulating posts on bio-leninism here and here and here.

The mental instability of these people makes them useful in many ways since it predisposes them towards fanaticism but it also makes them difficult to control. When you’re using feminists as a weapon for example then you have to be aware that you’re dealing with an unguided missile. The globalists are happy to use feminists to attack Christians and white men (preferably working-class white men) but the recent #metoo fiascos where feminists have targeted black men and even elite Jews are a good illustration of the dangers. In fact the dangers in this case are even greater since you’re not just dealing with feminists but also with actresses who are even more unstable and narcissistic than everyday feminists. Your chances of trying to reason with Hollywood feminists are very very poor. These Hollywood feminists can smell blood in the water and they are in no mood to pick and choose their victims carefully.

This is likely to be more and more of a problem. The globalists have given seriously crazy people a great deal of power to destroy and they’re hoping they can direct that destruction against their enemies, but those crazy people get crazier as they get more power and as they get the taste for blood. They’re likely to be increasingly difficult to control. The results will be interesting to watch.

bad new for the Oscars, good news for everyone else

You don’t often get good news stories but this is definitely a good news story. The 2018 Academy Awards telecast set a new record – the lowest ratings in its history.

Maybe people don’t want to watch four hours of political preaching? Maybe the people who actually watch movies don’t share the belief of those who make movies – that every movie should be an excuse for political messaging, that every single awards show and every interview given by Hollywood celebrities should be an extended political lecture?

And there is one other thing that Hollywood execs need to bear in mind. The dismal ratings for the Oscars indicate declining interest among American movie-goers but Hollywood these days is heavily dependent on foreign markets, such as the Chinese market. And those markets have little patience with being hectored politically by self-righteous Americans.

There’s also, as mentioned in a comment by бармаглот to my previous post, the all-new inclusion rider madness – stars will be able to have it included in their contracts that a movie must include specified levels of diversity. This should do plenty of damage, particularly to the foreign box office.

Hollywood needs to die. Perhaps we are seeing early signs that this is actually going to happen. One can only hope.

superhero moves – liberalism on steroids

Why are superhero movies pushed so aggressively by the studios? There are several obvious answers. These movies don’t require originality, just money, and in commercial terms they’re safe.

There is another possible reason. Superhero moves are liberalism on steroids. They sum up so much of the Social Justice mindset. What Social Justice Warriors hate and fear more than anything else is reality, because reality rarely coincides with their theories. When you make a superhero movie you can just ignore reality.

We all know that in real life men are much stronger than women. But that isn’t fair! In a superhero movie it’s no problem. Female superheroes can be even stronger than the male ones. We all know that in the real world multi-culturalism is a disaster. But in a superhero movie it works just fine. A superhero movie is an opportunity for creating a Social Justice fantasy world.

Superheroes also don’t have to earn their superpowers. They just have them. That’s an idea that appeals to liberals. In an ideal liberal world you can be anything you want to be. You just have to follow your dream.

Back in the 70s and 80s science fiction was an incredibly popular genre. You might think that sci-fi really isn’t much different from the superhero genre but actually it is. Science fiction at least has to go through the motions of trying to appear vaguely plausible. There is at least a tenuous connection with reality.

It’s not that there’s anything particularly wrong with fantasy, but it can be dangerous if it’s being used to reinforce theories that just don’t work. And if it’s being used for purposes of blatant propaganda.

how the culture war could have been won

You can divide people into two categories, the civilisation-preservers and the civilisation-wreckers. The civilisation-wreckers have taken various forms but the most dangerous of all are the Social Justice Warriors with which we are too familiar today. The real question is – why have the civilisation-wreckers been so much more successful than the civilisation-preservers?

A major reason is that the civilisation-preservers are generally speaking fairly ordinary people. They have jobs. They’re married. They’re raising kids. They have only a limited amount of time to devote to politics.

The civilisation-wreckers on the other hand are usually unemployed. Or they work in academia, which is the same thing really (at least in most of the humanities departments). Even if they’re married they usually have one or even more commonly no kids. They have lots and lots of leisure time to devote to political activism. In practice ten civilisation-wreckers can achieve more than a hundred civilisation-preservers simply because they can devote their whole lives to the task.

The sad thing is that this situation, this massive over-supply of activists with time on their hands, is not natural. It has been manufactured. And it could have been stopped.

Anyone who has had to deal with an infestation of household pests such as ants knows that the only way to eradicate the problem is to find the nests. It’s the same with SJWs. Fortunately in the case of SJWs we know where the nests are. They’re in academia mostly, in the bureaucracy and in NGOs and the media (especially the government-owned media like the BBC and the ABC). And they’ve been breeding there for decades.

Over the past decades supposedly conservative governments in Britain, Australia and the U.S. have had ample opportunities to solve this problem. All they had to do was to cut off the supply of oxygen, in other words cut off the funding. Would-be SJWS would them have been forced to find real jobs in the real world. They would then not have had all that leisure time for political activism (some of them might even have abandoned their SJW beliefs after encountering the real world).

This would not have been a complete solution of course. Some of the nests in the media would certainly have survived and some of the useless university departments handing out Mickey Mouse degrees would have found alternative sources of funding. But it would still have achieved quite a lot. The supply of SJWs funded by the taxpayer with unlimited amounts of free time could have been reduced radically. The SJW menace might have been contained.

And those supposedly conservative governments in Britain, Australia and the U.S. have done nothing. They have allowed SJWs to continue to proliferate. The worthless NGOs still thrive, the Women’s Studies and Gender Studies and sociology departments continue to get funded to churn out unemployable misfits intent on destroying our society, the bureaucracy has not been reined in and the BBC and ABC still spend billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money on civilisation-wrecking.

There is an obvious conclusion to be drawn from this. Those so-called conservative governments never did intend to win the culture war. They never even intended to fight it. Worse than that, they have been not merely passive spectators but in many cases have worked actively for the forces of darkness. Those conservative political parties need to die.

Catholic converts vs cradle Catholics

There’s an interesting post at A Political Refugee From the Global Village, Anthony Burgess on Catholic converts, on Catholic converts vs cradle Catholics. I’m not a Catholic so I’m not really in a position to have any kind of dogmatic opinion on this subject. I was intrigued though by the suggestion that cradle Catholics tended to react to Vatican II by shrugging their shoulders and accepting it, while Catholic converts like Evelyn Waugh saw it as an unmitigated disaster.

My instincts tell me that the Catholic converts were probably correct in this case.

Converts do seem to be generally speaking more zealous than those raised in a particular creed, whether that creed is a religion or a political ideology. Converts to communism back in the pre-World War 2 period tended to be very extreme, sometimes even to the extent of becoming Soviet spies. Were they more zealous than the so-called “red diaper” babies of the postwar period, who absorbed communism with their mother’s milk? I’m not quite sure.

Converts to cults and fads (such as veganism) are of course usually very gung-ho.

And social justice warriors are often converted to the cause at university so that might explain some of their fanaticism.

The various dissident right groups (alt-right, neo-reactionaries, whatever) are of course comprised entirely of converts, which might have interesting consequences.

Getting back to religion, perhaps one reason for the weakness of modern Christianity is that it’s just not making converts on a large scale any longer. Perhaps a religion needs the zeal of converts to keep it vital and alive?

the rise of SJWism in eastern Europe

There’s a very interesting recent piece by Anatoly Karlin at Unz Review, Poland Will Legalize Gay Marriage Within 10 Years.

He argues that SJWism already has an almost unstoppable momentum in Poland and indeed in most of eastern Europe (but not in Russia).

I fear that he is almost certainly correct. American popular culture is a poison to which white people seem to have no resistance. And of course there are also the deliberate nation-wrecking policies of western NGOs and the western media.

American popular culture has been the biggest single factor contributing to the destruction of western Europe and of countries such as Canada and Australia. American popular culture is pure evil. All of it. It’s not just the overt SJW propaganda contained in Hollywood movies, American television, pop music, etc.. It’s more basic than that. It’s the promotion of a materialistic, hedonistic consumerist worldview.

Some social conservatives like to imagine that Poland will have some immunity to this due to the supposed strength of Polish Catholicism. Anatoly points out that the facts do not support this belief. The sad truth is that organised Christianity is now part of the problem. It is part of the globalist/SJW axis of evil. I personally incline to the view that it’s an inherent weakness in Christianity. Christianity’s universalism makes Christians particularly susceptible to the siren call of globalism, and Christianity’s basic touchy-feely obsession with the virtues of niceness makes it almost impossible for Christians to resist the lure of Social Justice.

It’s clearly much too late to save western Europe, so what can be done to save eastern Europe? Anatoly suggests that the promotion of cultural anti-Americanism is essential. I agree entirely. The problem is, how can such a thing be done?

Russia has resisted because the American desire to destroy Russian civilisation and Russian society is so painfully obvious. The Americans also intend to destroy all eastern European societies but this is not yet quite so obvious to Poles, Czechs and other eastern Europeans.

It’s probably not too late to save Australia but it soon will be. And while the promotion of cultural anti-Americanism is the only way we can save ourselves it is difficult to see any prospects of this happening.

One of the chief difficulties is of course the fact that Americans are not evil people. They are in fact quite pleasant people on the whole. American culture is however a different matter. The old American culture, the one that generations of Americans cherished, has been destroyed. Those who currently control American culture hate ordinary Americans with a burning passion. They hate the old American culture and the old American values. Ordinary Americans and the culture they cherished were the first targets of the new American elites. It’s the US cultural establishment that is the problem.

Being anti-American culture is very different from being anti-American. Being anti-American culture is necessary for survival but there’s a lot of money behind the US cultural establishment.
