    No one actually believes any of this, do they? It’s just ideological signaling to show we’re the “good guys”. Right? Right?
    *cries*

    Have to quote David Graeber here: “So we exercise our ethical rules, but there is a limit – from scaling – beyond which the rules cease to apply. The general kills the particular. The question we will reexamine later: is it possible to be both ethical and universalist? In theory, but sadly, not in practice. For whenever the ‘we’ becomes too large a club, things degrade, and each one starts fighting for his own interest. The abstract is way too abstract for us. This is the main reason I advocate political systems that start with the municipality, and work their way up (ironically, as in Switzerland), rather than the reverse that has failed with larger states. Being somewhat tribal is not a bad thing.”

    That said, I had a bit of a chuckle at the video glorifying getting with lots of people into small boats and crossing over, like it’s a happy sunny holiday trip. It’s just unreal. Could be an advert for human traffickers.

    Aren’t refugees exercising the only universal human right, the right to exit?

    Or is that a universal human right post hoc the climb of Mount Delectable – Patchwork?

    I respect their right to exit completely.
    But in a patchwork world, the individual states are free to set up entrance requirements.
    Encouraging what is the sentient parallel of a DDoS attack is just ill-advised.

    (in a patchwork world, a state would be free to open their borders to everyone that wants in – but at least it’d be decided at a local level, putting that state at risk, instead of Brussel bureaucrats that are completely insulated from their mistakes)

    Large-scale “democracy” is doom. Fortified gentrification is salvation.

    A right to exit does not necessarily equal a right to enter.

    Rohme Giuliano Reply:

    I see your point, particularly, on fortified gentrification being the soteriological summit of neoreactionary thought.

    I need to delve into the contract theory behind patchwork further. I am curious on all things.

    You still didn’t send me new tunes, dawg.

    Never go Full Soviet. Ooops… too late. The West went Full Soviet.

    Hegemonizing Swarm Reply:

    Did the Soviet ever encourage mass emigration to the USSR?
    They were extremely hostile to Muslims on their own soil, one example the deportation of the Crimean Tatars in 1944.

    For some “strange” reason the only information I can find about Soviet immigration policy is how much they did to prevent people from leaving, nothing about preventing people from entering. Still it’s clear that they didn’t exactly have a welcoming open border policy, certainly not to those of religious bent.

    Different from communism appealing to the working class, this particular power bloc discovered how easy it is to exploit basic human kindness using emotional blackmail on a large scale [1]. If you have any other opinion you’re a bad person by definition. But it’s just ideological make-belief, not an actual left turn[2]. It’s about what you say, not what you do. The high taxes are still there, but the Euro-socialist services that used to be part of the deal have been in disrepair for the last decennia.

    [1] Only one of the many ways humanism is doomed, of course.

    [2] What is telling is that European government doesn’t care about the poor countries and people in its own periphery. Not only that, they plunder them and squash them like grapes http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-21/greek-authorities-launch-mass-confiscation-safe-deposit-boxes-securities-homes-tax-e

    I have to say, it’s been fun to think that we can escape this suicide by migration transpiring in the West with technology designed to force decentralization and exit. Realistically, however, there won’t be any escape at all until after the worst has already passed. Call me a cynic or perhaps someone in the midst of the terror that a bout of sleep paralysis brings, but I think that’s several decades. Bitcoin and Urbit will be for the survivors if there are any worthy among them.

    Western institutions will probably end up squandering any remaining opportunities on “baizuo ethics.” Bitcoin will be legislated away, blockchain as a technology used to enforce eternal reparations contracts and perpetual servitude of the neue-kulak class. Your criminal record of copyright infringement and wronthink convictions will forever be encoded in your transaction history, tied directly to your Internet license. I pray that any AGI projects susceptible to public scrutiny will be mired so heavily in politics no actual work gets done as the risk of it being infused with the malice of a Bolshevik seems too high. Want horror? Imagine Pitetsi Prison superimposed with AGI.

    Maybe when I have those occasional sleep-paralysis episodes, the shadow sitting on my chest is actually the AGI revealing itself momentarily as it proceeds to suffocate me.

    I hope the Chinese are more wise.

    Personally, it’s becoming harder to suppress the growing intensity of the need to make flight as well. If migration has been made inevitable, why not join in the madness and get ahead of the curve?

    This is the hill that Baizuoism has chosen to die on. Man, it can’t happen soon enough.

    By no means. Remember this: They’re not in a fight. So it’s not as though they’re defending a moral or ethical position.

    What we have here is the leftist signalling spiral and the cults of equality and democracy pushed to an extreme point, if not to their logical conclusion. As things move further and further to the left, the past becomes ever more foreign and hateful, so one must atone for the sins of one’s parents and grandparents. What better way to atone than what you see in that video? Democracy facilitates this, for “it will always remain one of the best jokes of democracy, that it gave its deadly enemies the means by which it was destroyed.” In this case, the enemies are not us; they are the Arabs and Africans which the progressive establishment makes a fetish of. It is not going to end well.

    So not a hill to die on, but a poison pill. An ignominious suicide — a dog’s death — not a death in battle. Disgraceful. Our ancestors deserve better.

    The world of Open Borders advocates is so full of positive feelings, naive sentimentality, self-important righteousness and sycophancy that any form of irony or mockery is always in the weaker position.

    The way things are going every last negative sentiment (towards mass 3rd world immigration into the West) will soon be forced to go underground.

    Already the merest gibe tends to meet with incomprehension.

    What if you were literally the worst thing that ever happened to the galaxy?

    Not just you personally, but your entire species as well as most of the species on your planet.

    It’d take a rather determined and grim kind of visitor who would want to visit you, the sort of person who would think that Butlins and Pontins holidays are horrid because they don’t fully capture the pathos and boredom of a fully sober month in Rhyl, just for starters.

    If various planetary authorities were to find out that their “out of town” visitors were showing up because you are quite literally the worst thing in the galaxy, and that makes you interesting, do you think they’d tell you about it?

    And so the great existential horror that awaits your consideration is that your talk about immigration on-planet is precisely what those interplanetary travellers wish to prevent entirely for all of you …

    How many million hunter-killer “dark matter objects” in extrasolar space do you think it’d take to make the point that the denizens of that planet should mind their own business about galactic affairs until they’ve sorted out their own?

    Or perhaps it’ll only take that one “alien megastructure” star … you know, the one where a galactic public works project has spent ten thousand galactic zettacredits on building an exploding Dyson sphere, and you’re just now able to see the construction project kicking off by consequence of distance from it?

    Perhaps the reason your galactic neighbours haven’t shown up is because the evacuation was completed some time ago, and that they’re simply watching and waiting …

    To see if you’ll do yourselves in first, of course, so they can save that Dyson sphere star bomb for something less deserving.

    Be seeing you.
