Why basic-bitch conservatism is dead.

gavfavfsvfv.png

Conservatism and Liberalism were two sides of the democratic coin for an age in America. Other western nations often copied the same diametric system in a belief that democracy would work, and that there were standard ideas to be argued and legislated for and against.

In recent decades there has been another influence – that of socialism and communism. People may of course deny it, however this influence has primarily been a product of Jewish influence either at home or from abroad in most western nations. On occasion it has been picked up also by indigenous peoples who were conquered at the outset of those nations – like Australia, Canada and the USA.

This communist influence is what has changed standard liberalism and libertarianism into far more radical groups. Where fringe elements sprang up and wanted extreme change to social, economic and cultural norms, finally metastasizing into groups like Black Lives Matter, La Raza and Antifa.

Most of these changes were anti-democratic and anti-capitalist, culminating in a favor they did us all – Anti-White.

Conservatism is poorly (if at all) equipped to deal with racial matters. It’s very nature is to be politically correct – even if it is its’ own version of political correctness. Try for instance bringing up any kind of race realism – factual or not – at CPAC. You will never see a speaker on this topic.

Conservatives for generations have attempted to dig their heels into the dirt and placate the voters with what they figured they wanted. A middle ground between liberal ideas and conservative ones. However, with these new racially charged groups thrown into the mix who are willing to use violence, intimidation and the power of the social media to pull the conversation further and further left, we now have “conservatives” who openly promote anti-democratic ideas and take part in crony capitalism as a matter of course.

Conservatism is dead, and the only people who cannot seem to grasp this are the conservative assembly themselves. Sure, conservation of social, cultural and political norms is a real and continual process, but those in the conservative movement are not promoting these ideas. They are promoting open borders, amnesty for criminals, gay marriage and miscegenation of all kinds.

If you cannot conserve your racial identity, your culture or your borders, then how can you call yourself a conservative? What exactly are you conserving?

The one bright shining light out of the ashes is the new racially charged landscape, and anyone with half a brain can understand that white people are the engine of the western nation state. They pay an unproportionate amount of taxes and have built these civilisations over many generations.

The main problem we have are taxes, housing and land value and jobs as far as the “basic-bitch” politics is concerned. Of course some other issues are cropping up, like the attacks on our cultures and way of life.

Our taxes are constantly being used to pay for everything from female contraceptives to refugee resettlement and welfare for all of the above.

The cost of buying houses is skyrocketing because of overseas buying which is great for the unionised building industry, the real estate brokers and holders of these hard assets but we’re increasingly finding that having a family is unaffordable.

Jobs – as has been made clear by President Trump – are going overseas or dying out altogether to automation and cheap labor.

These are things that have been the backbone of western nations for over a century, and it is poignant that their destruction is coinciding with out of control national debt and poor management of our nation states in general. Corruption and waste in most western nations seems to be on the rise.

You would of course think that some stalwart of conservatism would step forth and champion these causes, fight these good fights, however nobody has even tried in Australia (or America as far as I can see) in over a decade.

Most are in fact too busy trying to shout down anyone who so much as suggests change as a racist or bigot.

The era is well and truly over for this kind of conservative stupidity. Often the same people calling out for “Muh Constitution” one minute, are calling for “Rule by shadow government” the next.

So much for being principled conservatives.

There are a plethora of statistics and corroboratory evidence to show the links between Race and IQ, job prospects and IQ – and of course crime and IQ.

These are in my view the pinnacle of Alt-Right thinking. They are not refuted – indeed most detractors fear even broaching the subject. These facts are on our side, but do not in fact fix any of the underlying issues.

srthsgesrgerg.png

Merely being aware of lower average IQ in sub saharan Africans won’t fix the crime.

Reminding people of low IQ among Middle Eastern tribes will not increase job prospects.

Also one has to remember that 20% of black people in the USA will still score ABOVE the average white person.

Asians will still do better than ALL other groups.

None of this fixes any of the real world issues however.

Further problems abound by the big tent. Milo Yiannopoulos political demise shows how easily a big tent can be brought down by someone not really espousing the views that are in the best interests of the people being represented. Much like open borders migration, pedophilia is frowned upon by the rank and file voter – and rightly so. It is not in their best interests to have these kinds of conversations – which only happen as a result of the big tent philosophy – a quick dirty unprincipled grab for more votes by pandering to small groups of hangers on.

“Conservatism” in its’ current form needs to die off before the problems of today can be thoroughly researched and begin to be solved. Without a race realist conservative platform – things will not change, they will get worse as more and more power slides to the left and violence overtakes debate as the modus operandi of political struggle.

The lack of AltRight progress and subsequent destruction will come from within.

serveimage.jpg

If people think that the lack of AltRight progress and that its’ destruction will come from outside of its’ borders – think again.

The difference between a Purity Spiral and merely Policing your own.

If you want to see an excellent example of a movement that didn’t police its’ own and has begun to melt down because of that fact – look no further than the Democrats and left in general.

For years now the way to extricate yourself from the mere followers and become a leader of the left was to do or say something extreme – which to everyone else in the world sounded batshit crazy. The Air Conditioning is sexist, Abortion after birth, Free College + Free Child Minding for my kids while I finish my gender studies degree. All of these kinds of claims and “human rights” being given a platform on CNN or similar news network elevated people above the fray of blue haired, lip ringed idiots who were willing to follow anyone who looked more left wing than themselves.

Now apply these same group dynamics to the AltRight.

Feeling uncomfortable yet?

That’s ok, let’s take a look at a purity spiral.

Feminism is a classic one for this. When Anita Sarkeesian’s crazy views were being aired and she decided to basically tell Germaine Greer she just wasn’t feminazi enough because Germaine didn’t believe in her brand of feminism or even her definition – at the 2015 Festival of Dangerous Ideas – this is merely one example off the top of my head.

Defining things is important. Living up to the definition is far more difficult, and often people will stumble.

If you want to get a good example of someone redefining things at the drop of a hat in the AltRight – one only has to look as far as Richard Spencer. His views on abortion seem to have changed quite dramatically – and the timing seems to line up quite perfectly with toying with the idea of running for congress.

Heil Gate was another one – in one breath Richard tells the press that NPI is a place where we leave all the twitter nonsense behind and present ideas to the public and press. In the next breath he reiterates this point in one of his speeches.

And then the “Heil Trump” and screams of “Pepe” erupt from him later as if throwing the entire thing out the window. As if he didn’t realise that the press would use THAT as the takeaway from the entire conference. Never mind the work put in by dozens of people on presenting data, statistics and analysis. Never mind the weeks of defence afterwards on everyone’s account.

But none of this matter because Richard is followed with fanboy acclaim by the rank and file man-children who are looking for identity. The problem with them is – they haven’t found a WHITE identity, instead they have found an AltRight identity.

The movement is becoming a victim to the very problem it’s trying to solve – the lack of identity among younger people in our communities. As national identity is being stripped away – the last one in a long line of destruction, it’s leaving the void which nature abhors.

The difference here between Mike Enoch’s marriage (which occurred before the AltRight was even a thing) and Heil Gate was – Mike’s marriage didn’t particularly do DAMAGE to the movement. Only fools would think that this was even a problem.

CyClo2yXgAEMz4Q.jpg

If we want to see real change, if we want to give voice to concerns, lobbying needs to take place. Right now is a perfect time for that. A 10 point plan presented in a 10 minute meeting with Steve Bannon couldn’t be arranged? A presentation on birth rate, the unfairness of mostly whites paying for mostly blacks on welfare, the single motherhood of black ghetto’s leading to more and more unsociable and violent blacks on the street? None of this could happen?

NPI was the perfect vehicle to effect such a policy presentation.

But nooooooo……

No we’re too busy making Pepe meme’s which are great and all, but hardly the actual GOAL of the movement. NPI was a disaster for this very reason, heil-gate was swept under the rug while everyone is worried about Mike Enoch’s QUARTER JEW wife?!

Czjwe0jXcAAkA74.jpg

Don’t take it the wrong way – I don’t CARE what the media thinks, nobody should apologise to those asshats, but it should never have happened and certainly neither should all this idiocy over Mike Enoch’s wife.

The problem is – nobody is calling that fact. We cannot seem to recognise our own errors when they occur because people are unwilling to criticize the people leading. This allows the AltRight to be easily led and easily led in the wrong direction – just like the Democrats.

Goals need to be striven for, not just talked about. We cannot be changing principles when it suits us and then worrying about things that aren’t important.

Dr David Duke did a 45 minute talk on this EXACT thing.

“We are in a fight for our survival. We cannot afford to be caught up in these purity spirals, we need to preach principles.”

Why “whiteness” and Western Civilization cannot be separated.

CuBzuTQWAAExIcw.jpg

Over the course of the past decade or more we have heard the argument over and over for multi-racial and sexually diverse roles in Hollywood and the workforce.

Whether it is black spiderman, female ghostbusters or the first female president, we are told diversity is necessary. The main reason for this has been stated as “people need role models that they can relate to.”

Even during the recent presidential election, women who were interviewed said over and over “It will be a wonderful thing to have the first woman president, imagine the example that will give to younger girls.”

Living and leading by example is without a doubt one of the basis of civilization as we know it. The exemplification of moral and ethical concern, choices and standards is how we learn to participate with each other peacefully, and even enjoy a sense of community with each other.

ghkdjfj.png

So how is it then that someone who cannot gain these moral or ethical lessons from a straight white Spiderman, can turn around and gain the moral, ethical or philosophical lessons from a straight white George Washington? An Abraham Lincoln? Or even a Christopher Columbus?

They can’t and they know it. The more we allow foreign interests into our nations the less those nations will be able to extol the virtues, standards and culture they were built upon.

This is already playing out across the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, as no-go zones, and Sharia Courts are set up. Suicide attacks become more common place and freedom and democracy are thrown aside for laws and restrictions that curb all of the natural rights of their original european populations.

The irony here of course is that many people coming here for the outcomes that only western civilization seems to be able to deliver, then want to change it so that it reflects the failed civilization that they came from.

serveimage.jpg

This isn’t only true of Islamic or Multicultural immigrants – Socialists across the United States and other western nations have been raising their heads to change even further the system to reflect values it wasn’t built upon. These many faceted attacks on the civilization at large can only be described as a number of different groups who looking to Western wealth and hard fought for privileges see the liberal political and social landscape as an opportunity to attempt to take over a system that they could never build themselves.

Socialism and Communism are both failed ideologies that elites in the western world continue to wish to promote. After all – even in Russia the changes between communism and democratic capitalism didn’t really change the people at the very top. The same people who owned land, or owned a factory during the communist regime of the USSR still do so today. The same would be true of changing to a socialist or communist regime. Elites at the very top wouldn’t change, only the populations’ rights and living standards would.

It is about time America, Australia, Canada and the rest of the west got a hold of these many ideological forces that are attempting to claim a house that they never built.

It is past time to take back the Universities and end Multi-culturalism.

Is a perfect storm brewing?

I’m not sure it would be ridiculous to think we can all feel change on the wind at this point. However, I have to wonder if too many people realise what is going on in the markets and military movements around the world right now.

I’m just going to lay out some points for you to consider. I have not for reasons of making the list far too long, included the plethora of attacks that have occurred as a result of Merkel’s refugee policy. However, the reader should keep those in mind also as a further irritant to all parties.

Given everything from birth rates to suicide rates among men, and the various other statistics I am sure many people are already familiar with, then add to that the small cracks appearing in the basic social contract we have in our society (police assassinations, presidential candidates caught in frauds and corruption – and nobody cares) – one has to wonder if this isn’t the perfect storm brewing on the horizon. And further, if it isn’t just the soft nihilism our society has been toying with for a long time, finally playing itself out.

Nature Abhors a Vacuum.

Basic Economics. Probably the cornerstone of western civilisation in many respects these days, as to follow one’s own path requires a person to deal with it.

If during your trip to the shop you paid too much or too little, someone has probably committed a crime. So, we know, when we go to the shop to pay the exact amount the particular item we needed or wanted is worth – including the perception of what it’s worth.

This is why it’s called BASIC economics. In fact this is merely the starting point of basic economics. Hint: the rest of the subject is just as basic.

It is unfortunate therefore that so many people cannot understand why paying nothing for something intrinsically devalues that particular item of value. In fact it also devalues all of the work that goes into making it. All of the labor and creativity – fundamentally worthless.

If one were to start in a capitalist society, it might well take years – even decades – to devalue the item in question, however in the end the outcome is fixed.

This is the basic problem with the Soviet Economy, there was only one time a particular good was worth something – when it was hard to get. So, it became a game for people in power to withhold goods and services knowing they could dole them out piecemeal in order to raise their value. Everything was valueless unless there was a shortage. (This is a simplified explanation).

In basic terms this means that people stop caring if they are producing a reasonable quality of the good or service or not.

The realisation of this, is at least part of the reason for the Chinese Socialist government to embrace open market trading of stocks, in order to produce economic strength through these shortages and produce more growth overall.

At present they want the free market growth, but not the risk – and at some point they will either need to decide to run with it and take the risk or lose the growth by hampering the markets through their overabundance of regulation.

The Chinese market has just left a period of fluctuation, the reason for this was the regulation on the kinds of companies people are allowed to invest in. Occasionally the government deregulates part of their economy. This creates a huge amount of speculation on the market which then normalises after a year or so. Every time it happens everyone thinks the economy is crashing, and indeed, the belief that it is could bring it about if they aren’t careful.

This is a far cry from the theories of Frederick Engels “Formula for Capital”. Where Engels espouses his Marxist philosophical ideals in full and devalues investment in everything and anything – including the individual.

This is how a chimney sweep gets paid the same as a Doctor or a Sailor, this is a good thing in his views because time is worth the same for everyone, and therefore the output derived from a persons’ time is worth the same. The flaws here are numerous and obvious even to the casual observer. Where does the Doctor get recompense for his time spent in University? Where does the sailor get paid for the risks of the seas ?

Unfortunately, this is not a question to be asked these days.

Today, the Marxism Conference starts in Melbourne (I pause to laugh as tickets are on sale for the event) to be hosted by the University of Melbourne and the Victorian College of the Arts.

I have to wonder at where it all went wrong for western society, as thoughtful questioning human beings seem to be more and more rare. I can only surmise that we have allowed so many of the pillars of society to be pulled down, that it has created a social and political vacuum that is being filled by the loudest voices. No matter how distraught, unintelligible or downright intellectually dishonest.

Attempting to fix the problem seems to be a struggle in itself of epic proportions. Everyone wants to change things, but nobody wants to change as per usual.

To be honest, the system is far too far gone for even a Trump to really change things for the better. He’d have to get in and rip the still beating heart out of the university system and feminism both (I will lay odds that guy came from a single mother household – his contempt for an actual rational perspective and for other men speaks to his barely concealed femininity.)

In order to fix the problem we have to study a time when the problem didn’t exist or where there were enough checks and balances that the problem was manageable.

We’ve torn down men, the church, rational political discourse and objectivity.

If unsure of your identity when you’re young, you often find yourself just following the crowd. This unsure person has their identity seated in their own ego, an ego so weak that it can’t even self-define. It has to look for constant third party validation.

Once upon a time, a young person could count on a Father to provide this role, failing this, the Church, Academia, the Army or even rational Political Discourse – all of these bodies could pose the questions to give oneself pause to reflect on basic questions of right and wrong. These bodies could also be relied upon to provide reasoning for and an authoritative stand for moral and ethical values that anybody could aspire to.

Taking a good look around the only one that still seems to offer is the Armed Forces – and then only if you’re willing to fight side by side with women who – so obviously – are going to put you at greater risk. And you’re willing to die when commanded to, by people who frankly should be far below you on the pecking order.

So what is filling this vacuum?

 

Every baldfaced lie and bad idea we, the human race, has ever come up with and over a period of time (sometimes hundreds of years) discarded.

I don’t see any amount of Trump-ism fixing the real problem without first removing it from our institutions root and branch.

But, then, replace it with what?

Nature abhors a vacuum.

Australia’s Child Bride Problem.

serveimage.jpg

In early February 2014 I first saw a story in the Guardian, this story consisted of a Muslim doctor in Sydney who was fed up. She was fed up with young girls coming into her surgery pregnant at 13 and 14 years of age. When asked who got them pregnant the answer was always the same – their husbands.

The doctor’s name is Dr Eman Sharobeem. I notice she has since set up a “child bride hotline” – something I never thought we’d need in this country – in order to try and stem the tide of young girls being married or sometimes sold into these slave-like arrangements.

Dr Eman Sharobeem has spent almost a decade working with victims of forced marriage in Australia. So you can imagine her surprise back in july of the same year when the federal government spent almost $500,000 in grants to address the problems of child marriage in Australia on Islamic religious and academic bodies and bypassed her completely.

I would surmise this is more in line with the federal government plan of paying Islamic institutions to thwart odious cultural problems themselves, rather than the government having to step in to do it, as we’ve seen with the distribution of $1 million “anti-terror” funds to Islamic schools and Mosques around the country in recent times. At least they can be seen to be doing something I guess.

At around the same time that Dr Sharobeem was denied funds for her already trialed measures to counter the child bride issue, and her opening of a hotline for child brides who wanted help, a 26 year old Pakistani man was being arrested for having an ongoing sexual relationship with a girl who was only 12. He was arrested in the attempt to try and secure her guardianship.

Apparently the man was quite shocked to learn that he was doing something wrong, as the girl was his wife.

In the wake of the man’s arrest the Community Services Minister Pru Goward was interviewed on 2GB and suggested that forced child marriages were in fact “quite common”.

‘I understand there are actually a significant number of unlawful, unregistered marriages to under-aged girls in NSW, particularly in western Sydney, south-west Sydney and the Blue Mountains,’ she said.

Of course one must surmise that while the law of the land considers these under-aged girls to be unlawfully married Islam does not. And with the influx in recent years of Sharia courts to oversee “marriage counselling” – many of which are also celebrants – these women are literally living in a world of their communities, or more correctly Islam’s making.

Police say there are possibly hundreds of such cases right now across Australia that they know nothing about, and are not reported because the Muslim community does not see there to be any problem with the practice.

In fact between 2011 and 2014 there have been 60 such cases found in the Sydney region alone.

Sam Harris recently gave an interview with Maajid Nawaz on the ABC’s Lateline. One of Sam’s more pointed statements was “If you ask the question ‘What is ISIS doing that Mohammed wouldn’t have approved of?’ … The example of Mohammed as an exemplar of the faith doesn’t square very well with modern values. He was a warlord who did many of the things you see ISIS doing, and that is why they can justify what they are doing with a very literal reading of Islamic Theology and that’s a very inconvenient fact which we have to confront head on.”

The problem being is that the Muslim community as a whole is confirming what many of their critics have been saying all along. Islam IS Islamism despite the clever wordplay. There can be little doubt that these girls are not being married to men twice and thrice their age in a bubble.

Consider the logistics. One needs a man who is willing to marry the girl, parents of the girl, and an Imam/Celebrant to perform the marriage. All of these people need to somehow meet, and engage the topic without anyone involved calling the authorities. And apparently this has happened “hundreds of times” without any authority being called to stop it ever.

My suggestion is not without merit. As Dr Sharobeem herself said “It’s not secret within our communities. It’s maybe secret to the eyes of the rest of the Australian community”.

And how this happens is simple. Mohammed did it, Mohammed is the ultimate personification of what God wants human beings to be like, therefore we should all do it too – anything less is not Islam. There can be no Islam without Mohammed’s example.

One must look at Rotherham in the UK and wonder if our own police force are worried that they too will be considered “racists” or “bigots” and therefore do nothing ? Or perhaps they are merely uninformed or powerless to police the problem.

Although, one must see that shutting down sharia courts and making them specifically illegal would rob these would-be husbands of the Islamic legal tradition that must accompany these kinds of marriages.

And so we are left with the child-bride issue here in Australia with the government doing little of use about it. Giving money to people with no necessity of outcome, or pronouncement of use for the grants. All the while sharia courts look after any “legal issues” or problems with these arrangements, as they too have been allowed to flourish.

So my question is where in this are all of the Feminists?

The grand Cabal of women who advocate for the rights of women, the rights of any minority that are willing to pump a fist in the air at the required time and place ? The very people who have for decades built up an almost Orwellian control of the media for idiotic causes like “The Air Conditioning is Sexist” and “The gender wage gap” cannot seem to be found on real issues like this.

They are silent. As silent as the young girls forced into sexual slavery at the behest of men who wrote books detailing that slavery 1400 years ago.

After all, for the 18 to 20-something university student being a dissident feminist can be fun and identity affirming, the biggest question being put to many of them is what colour to make their hair this week.

However, when confronted with the harsh realities of life outside of university and their online echo chambers, I suppose it can be a little too “real”.
