Quote note (#214)

The intolerable clarity of Sailer at work:

… the concept of “Europeanism” upon which the EU was founded — that Europeans should be more neighborly to their fellow Europeans than to non-Europeans — is increasingly unmentionable in polite society because it’s seen as racist. For example, during the peak of adulation for Merkel before reality set in, she was widely praised for personifying European values by de-Europeanizing Europe.

How would one even begin to argue with anything said here? There’s a lot in this short passage, but nothing that isn’t obviously true, to everyone, which accounts — perhaps — for the fact that it is nevertheless almost unthinkably controversial.

It would be a relief to see Merkel awarded the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize for her contribution to the ruin of Europe. If not honest — or anything close — it would at least attain meta-honesty, by defining ‘peace’ explicitly as the suppression of truth.

    i thought it just to make commerce easier though a single currency instead of multiple currencies and regulations. I didn’t think it had much to do with nationalism or fraternity

    There has always been a feeling of “Europeanism” as in a shared civilizational foundation between western and central European states, even when they were constantly engaged in wars between themselves.

    The word you’re looking for is ‘Christendom’, and it’s Romano-Germanic culture superimposed over the (generally less impressive) Western and Eastern Europeans.

    The European Union and its predecessors were founded on the notion of creating supra-national pan-European structures that would undermine existing national structures and national identities. Importing a new populace who do not identify with intra-European nationalisms is consistent with the aims of the EU.

    This is the irony of Francis Parker Yockey, the EU IS Imperium, and what we find is that Europeans without their local identities are aimless sociopaths and religious nuts (true in the EU and America).

    Liberals are fundamentally the anti-Majority party and so it is always popular for them to try to destroy their own societies. It’s a way of explaining personal failure: “we are not like those who adapt well to this society, therefore (that’s the ‘magic therefore’) it must be bad and should be destroyed.”


    R. J. Moore II Reply:

    I think it’s possible to be Anti-Majority and destructionist without being a liberal. A kind of religious Puritanism as well as hyper-Darwinism both tend to see the lumpenprole as a problem to be done away with more than anything to be managed or protected.
