Quote note (#171)

Fernandez invests far too much confidence in conservatives, as usual, but this is still thought-provoking:

If the world that conservative Americans once cherished has diminished; it has not been as rapid as the shrinkage of the liberal universe. Both aspects of old world are dying never to come back. The post World War 2 era of Franklin Roosevelt has nearly run its course. The difference is that the conservatives are more aware of its passing and may become more active in building what replaces it.

A miniature representation of the crisis is being acted out in Greece where the left is embarked on a Battle Royale against reality. …

(Discussing the acute irony of Darwinian forces populating the world with creationists earlier this evening — it seems like very much the same thing.)

    The next step is recognizing that liberalism is a spectrum, and the “post World War II era of FDR” is actually late Enlightenment.

    Steve Sailer just posted something related on his blog:
    http://www.unz.com/isteve/how-liberals-inflict-idiocracy-upon-themselves/

    If things don’t change course, the USA will eventually come to resemble Brazil — which implies that liberalism isn’t going to disappear, just as social and economic liberalism is entrenched all over South America. The USA will deteriorate under the burdens of a “diverse” and dysgenic population, an overgrown paternalistic government, state-sponsored monopolies, and a massive underclass. It’ll doubtless be a welfare state, in the basic sense of the term, though a meager one. But most liberals would rather live under Stalin than not have a welfare state at all.

    Even if liberalism were to evaporate, those pathetic “conservatives” would have nothing to do with what replaces it. What exactly are they supposed to be conserving?

    Perhaps the cold reality is that European-export civilizations will always be re-drowned in the natives that occupied the places first (plus the slaves the Europeans imported to do their work). So one sees South Africa, Rhodesia, Brazil, the US all regressing to the demographics of pre-European-arrival times.

    There is an economic dynamic feeding this, of course. As Sailer would say: It’s the top and bottom against the middle. The oligarchs and the dispossessed against the middle class. Perhaps there is some kind of iron law in here.

    I keep thinking about places like Poland. Man … that place is 99.9999% POLISH and they have a blood-and-soil argument for keeping it that way. So they may put up more resistance to universalism than other places. Poland is kinda boring but whatever. There are costs to every path.

    Why would you not consider fighting for what is yours?

    Where do the other 197 million Whites in America go, and why should they?

    That’s 2010 census BTW.

    Go. You quit too easy.

    I didn’t say anything about going to Poland. Just thinking ABOUT Poland. I’ve pretty much decided the future for America is Elysium. Those of us brought up in the middle of the country in a democratic culture need to get over it and accept that that is finished. Time to embrace being part of the elite. Reject democratic mores in terms of dress, speech, music, everything.

    Eastern Europe still has a chance to maintain its democratic culture. So they can make different choices.

    Admin,

    “(Discussing the acute irony of Darwinian forces populating the world with creationists earlier this evening — it seems like very much the same thing.)”

    Though this is perhaps somewhat OT, I’ll take this opportunity to quote myself anyway (as the admin well knows, this writer is nothing if not thoroughly arrogant). Any opportunity to rip so-called “evolution” a new one is a good one.

    Evolution causes nothing. Evolution refers to a set of observed phenomena in the material world. The processes by which evolution occurs – mutuation, natural selection, and genetic drift – cause nothing. The processes by which it occurs refer to sets of material observations. Our knowledge of these material phenomena does not alter theirs effects.

    Furthermore, the so-called evidence of evolution can be no such thing. Evolution can be tested by no controlled experiment. In fact, evolution is a self-fulfilling prophecy that cannot be falsified.

    Belief in evolution is neither science nor true faith; it is deranged thought symptomatic of the demonic progressive religion that has ruled the Western world by sowing disunity with deceit for centuries.

    there is plenty of scientific evidence of evolution presented in research of ancient DNA from fossils and from deep water fishes, whose genome remains unchanged for few hundreds millions of years. In humans too, there are few orphan receptors with no known ligands. Receptors to estrogens believed to be oldest one. About same time testosterone in fish genome did not have androgen receptors and believed been used mainly as intermediate for synthesis of estrogens.
