It’s Only Your Money Until The Globalists Say It’s Theirs

July 29, 2017

The EU (Euronazi) bureaucrats have come up with a splendid new scheme to fill the hole in the EU budget that is already threatening the future of the bloc and will go critical after Brexit which will leave Germany as the only net contributor to the budget. They are going to claim that all the money in the EU belongs to the EU. If there is the slightest hint that a government has a problem servicing its debts or a bank, any bank in the EU, does not have enough capital to meet its obligations, you had better get your money out yesterday.

In fact it might be a good idea to get your money out and put it in offshore investment trusts anyway.

Although it’s your money, the EU have decided they have the right to freeze Personal Accounts to prevent financial problems blossoming into crisesfreeze Personal Accounts to prevent financial problems blossoming into crises. And one they have taken control of your accounts, they will also have the right to do what they like with your money.

Or to put it in the anodyne, non scary language bureaucrats prefer:

European Union states are considering measures which would allow them to temporarily stop people withdrawing money from their accounts to prevent bank runs, an EU document reviewed by Reuters revealed.

The move is aimed at helping rescue lenders that are deemed failing or likely to fail, but critics say it could hit confidence and might even hasten withdrawals at the first rumors of a bank being in trouble.

The proposal, which has been in the works since the beginning of this year, comes less than two months after a run on deposits at Banco Popular contributed to the collapse of the Spanish lender.

Giving supervisors the power to temporarily block bank accounts at ailing lenders is “a feasible option,” a paper prepared by the Estonian presidency of the EU said, acknowledging that member states were divided on the issue.

EU countries which already allow a moratorium on bank payouts in insolvency procedures at national level, like Germany, support the measure, officials said.

“The desire is to prevent a bank run, so that when a bank is in a critical situation it is not pushed over the edge,” a person familiar with German government’s thinking said.

The Estonian proposal was discussed by EU envoys on July 13 but no decision was made, an EU official said. Discussions were due to continue in September. Approval of EU lawmakers would be required for any final decision.

Under the plan discussed by EU states, pay-outs could be suspended for five working days and the block could be extended to a maximum of 20 days in exceptional circumstances, the Estonian document said.

Spooking Customers

Charlie Bannister of the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) says “We strongly believe that this would incentivize depositors to run from a bank at an early stage.” Why Might Customers Want to Run?

Here are a trillion reasons: There are over €1 trillion nonperforming loans (both government and private debt) held by EU commercial and central banks right now and the figure is growing every month. Non performing loans are those on which no interests or less that the contracted rate of interest is being paid.

Non-Performing Loans
Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland have a combined €606 billion in non-performing loans.

The entire European banking system is over-leveraged, under-capitalized, and propped up by QE from the ECB. Simply put, the EU banking system is insolvent.

That the EU has to consider such drastic measures proves the point.

Divisions In British Society Will Destroy Brexit Says Writer From The Most Divided Society In Europe

June 24, 2017

Recently came upon an article in an online news site that ought to know better, describing how the deep and irreconcilable divisions in British society (deeper than those in France, Germany or the USA according to the author) will ensure Brexit is a disaster.

It was the most ill – informed, bigoted piece of shite I have ever read.

London Bridge Is Down
Authored by Raul Ilargi Meijer via The Automatic Earth blog,

The French election, won overnight by Emmanuel Macron, put several segments of the French population opposite one another in a pretty fierce contest. And that contest will continue. Because Macron won’t be able to lift the French economy out of its doldrums any more than Le Pen could have, or than Trump can life the US, and the new president will have the honor of presiding over a further and deepening downturn. The French political dividing line was aptly described by Simon Kuper recently:

The ultra-nationalist writer Charles Maurras believed there were “two Frances”. The one he loved was the “pays réel”, the real country: a rural France of church clocks, traditions and native people fused with their ancestral soil. Maurras loathed the “pays légal”, the legal country: the secular republic, which he thought was run by functionaries conspiring for alien interests.

 

Maurras was born in 1868 and died in 1952. But if he returned on Sunday to witness the French presidential run-off, he would instantly recognise both candidates. He would cast Emmanuel Macron as the incarnation of the “legal France” and Marine Le Pen as embodying the “real” one.

Maurras may have been a questionable character, but that description is not half bad. Once enough people in the country understand the failure of ‘legal’ France, they will want ‘real’ France back. That will be true in countries all over Europe; to a large extent it already is. Marine Le Pen summed up the key issue really well a few days ago when she said of the country post election: “France will be led by a woman, me or Mrs. Merkel.”

There is only one reason the French people would ever tolerate Germany having an outsized influence in their politics and economics: that they feel they benefit from it financially. And yes, if you put it that way, it’s already quite something that they haven’t revolted more and earlier.

The generous unemployment benefits are undoubtedly part of that. But those can’t last. And since the Germans owe their influence in Paris to the EU, it’s obvious how the French will feel they can stop that influence. And then the EU will turn out to be not a peacemaker, but the opposite.

Still, as much as France is divided, and as serious as that division is, the country is a shining beacon of unity compared to the UK, where the dividing lines are as manifold as they are laced with toxins. The snap election PM Theresa May called, in just over a month, can do nothing to resolve any of it. That means the EU can do what they want in the Brexit negotiations. Which will therefore be an unparalleled disaster for May and the UK.

The EU can and will ‘have its way’ with the UK for one simple reason: the United Kingdom is anything but United. It makes no difference what the EU does to the UK, the British won’t blame them for it. They will blame each other instead. No matter what happens these days, the British always know in advance who’s to blame, and it’s never themselves; it’s always another group of Brits.

The Tories are deeply divided between pro- and anti-Brexit forces. Labour is divided along those same lines, and adds pro- and anti-Corbyn sentiments for good measure. Other parties don’t really matter much, but they have similar dividing lines as well.

Anti-Corbyn Labour MPs have convinced themselves they know better than pro-Corbyn party members. They’ve kept claiming for so long that Corbyn is unelectable it’s become a self-fulfilling prophecy. They’ll be lucky not to face the fate of their former brethren in François Hollande’s Parti Socialiste, who ended up with just 6% of the vote in the 1st round of the French elections.

PM Theresa May called the snap election for June 8 to hide some of the divisions behind, to make them appear less relevant, or even to profit from them and grab more power. But the very fact that Brexit was voted in, already makes the election nigh irrelevant.

Whoever wins, and it looks certain to be May herself. will open themselves to being scapegoated in a big way. Which won’t keep them from seeking victory, because the loser can expect the same fate. The trenches have been dug, and deeply. Governable? Don’t count on it. It feels more like 40 years later we’re back to Johnny Rotten ‘singing’ Anarchy in the UK.

If May threatens to leave the EU ‘cold’ and trigger a ‘Hard Brexit’, she will simultaneously trigger a whole lot more, and much wider, divisions in the country (or is that countries?!), and that’s even without mentioning an entire minefield of legal, and potentially constitutional, issues. The latter especially because Britain doesn’t have an actual -written- constitution.

For Brussels, it’s easy pickings, and pick they will. This week, they casually raised the UK’s cost of leaving the EU to €100 billion, from estimates varying from €40 billion to €60 billion before. Paddy Power and its equally powerful bookie ilk soon won’t be taking any bets below, say, €150 billion. In that regard, and many others, the EU will do to the UK what it is doing to Greece.

The only way to stand up against that is to show a common front. But there will be no such thing in the Divided Kingdom, not for a long time. Everyone has their favorite scapegoat, for some it’s Nigel Farage, for others David Cameron, George Osborne, Tony Blair, Jeremy Corbyn or Theresa May. And nobody is going to leave their blame trenches. They’re the only places they feel somewhat comfortable, less scared, in.

Theresa May, if the polls are to be believed -and given the divisions we might for once-, will have to sit down and negotiate with the multi-headed Hydra that is the EU, ‘strengthened’ by a major election victory, but she will find it the ultimate Pyrrhic victory, because Brussels will have a ball playing her divided ‘nation’.

Scotland can probably easily be seduced with the carrot of EU membership, but more importantly, Juncker and his people can cast doubt on the entire Brexit vote, and they will have many interested takers.

The Brexit negotiations will take at least 2 years. But it could be 3 or 4 years, who knows? May has no power over that durationm unless she walks. She won’t. And as things are drawn out, Juncker et al have all the time and opportunities they want to tell both May and the British public that Brussels has no intention of punishing them, but will have to do so anyway.

After all, Brexit is a threat to the entire European project, and all the leaders of the 27 remaining nations, as well as the vast majority of their domestic opposition parties, are behind that project, no questions asked. And the many thousands of people working their very well-paid jobs in Brussels and Strasbourg are not too critical either.

All in all, the British need to wake up and smell the roses as long as there are any left, and before they have been replaced with less savory odors. Or they will have to seriously wonder whether the Kingdom, united or not, can outlive the Queen, aka the London Bridge.

“London Bridge is Down” was recently revealed as the secret UK government code for the moment the Queen dies.

I call total Bullshit on this article written by persons either with an axe to grind or a lack of understanding of UK politics. Or both.

There may be some still semi-hidden more nefarious reasons (involving election rigging in the last election) to call the Poll now but essentially the Labour Party is in complete disarray under the “leadership” of communist Corbyn. Labour don’t seem to understand that you can’t win an election in a Western Libaeral democracy from anywhere other than the centre, as Le Pen just found out. Further, May was still largely operating under the mandate of Cameron and so not fully legitimate. Blair (that well known war criminal who should be in jail, but never mind for the purposes of the point to be made here) understood this very well and “New Labour won power from the centre. “Old Labour” under Corbyn will any election from the left.

For both of these reasons, may sensed an ideal opportunity to strengthen her majority (at present very small overall) and create her own mandate. Show me any politician who, faced with the same circumstances, would not have done exactly the same?

The outcome will be an enormous Conservative majority which will allow her a stronger hand in Brexit negotiations, such as they may be as the Brussels collective have already made it abundantly clear that they have no intention to negotiate in good faith. In fact, many are now wondering why waste 2 years and not just pull out now to avoid wasting 2 years in useless negotiations whicgh are likely to end in “no deal”. British industry can accept a return to WTO trade rules either indefinitely or until the German car manufacturers force Brussels to make a trade deal. And if the City loses out, so be it. The UK economy is over-dependent on criminal finance and it would be an ideal opportunity to re-balance the economy anyway.

So May and the UK will be in a much stronger position with a resounding mandate from the British people to get us out of the clutches of the unelected megalomaniacs in Brussels (Not to mention Pedophiles and Drunkards)

Again, I call major Bullshit on this article.

“I call total Bullshit on this article written by persons either with an axe to grind or a lack of understanding of UK politics. Or both.”

I have to agree. This doesn’t seem to reflect any facet of British society that I know about, although I am an ex-Brit, so might be out of touch.

1. Whilst Brits do like to play the blame game, they NEVER turn down an opportunity to wallop the Frogs, and the next two years are going to be an endless parade of Frogs in barrels for shooting purposes.

2. Scotland can whine and winge all it wants, they know that Europe will treat them like Greece, and they know that the UK will stop funding their profligate government. Given that the oil income is ever decreasing, it becomes more irrelevant. Finally, no new referendum until UK is out of eu, so utterly irrelevant. Do we see Scots rioting over being allowed to stay within eu? I don’t.

3. The Labour party. Enough said.

4. The lib dems weren’t even mentioned in the article, quite rightly as they are utterly irrelevant.

5. Seems to me that the Brits are actually quite united, in that the entirety of Europe is against them, backs to the wall, fight them on the beaches. If Spain tries to upset BritBot by messing with Gibraltar, all hell will break loose.

So, on balance, I believe the exact opposite of the article is the situation on the ground. Posh winebars in Knightsbridge might suggest otherwise, but London is NOT the UK.

 

Sirius Wonderblast's picture

Yup. The article is drooling nonsense. Unless its’ author thinks that every single person will at all times be in accord then it will always be possible to point to differences of opinion. Living here, I absolutely do not sense – outside perhaps of Londonistan and from the SNP (as distinct from Scots) – any dissent over the Brexit.

London is so different from the rest of the UK that in may ways, it is like somewhere else. Some areas more than others, mind you – Tower Hamlets, for instance.

May has astutely taken the opportunity to increase her majority, which looks like a shoo-in – while Labour and UKIP both are rudderless. I il say I admire Corbyn’s adherence to conviction politics, and the Labour membership’s support of him and his/their principles. It highlights the bankruptcy fo the parliamentary Labour Party and the slimeball politicians that make it up. Sadly, it is not enough to gain traction in an election in what is stil a largely somatised country. While folk can get BMWs and Audi’s on easy terms, who wants to fight for workers (or anyone else’s) rights?

Fact is, the EU has long been disliked, since its germ as the EEC really. Tampering with fairly minor matters of weigths and measures, however, was overtaken by the bombast and federalism, and feathering of nests, of the EU “elite” and their handsomely paid minions. Now we get the threats, coercion and general unmasking of the beast per Drunckard’s recent bile, which serve to prove the right choice was made. Now, threaten Britons with whatever dreamed up impositions, call them threats, call tem attacks, and you will see increased unity among us. At the same time, you will see – as has been the case – the division between those such a Cluncker at the Commission, and Tusk at the Council. Perhaps Tusk, federalist as he is, seems more hope for the EU if it can trade successfully with us than if not, which would seem wise.

Once the UK is out of the EU, the impetus for Scottish break away is liley to wither rather rapidly. Whither then Sturgeon’s pension?

What did anyone really expect after the way the PIIGS were treated? Now try it on with one of the big boys, you bunch of f*cking pussies. See how far you get.

The Islington set, it’s pseudo-intellectual fans in the BBC and a diminishing number of Snowflake-esque Remainers may cry their eyes out about it, but get around the country and you will find a good deal of unity and a rather visceral dislike of the EU and the people like Wancker who epitomise it.

 

Thus far May has it right. Call the election while the EU struts around like a pigeon (all Obama-style), then when it matters just don’t take the blindest bit of notce of their nonsense (Euro100bn demand included).

Got to agree, this is the most illinformed piece of guff I’ve read for a long time.

“For Brussels, it’s easy pickings, and pick they will. This week, they casually raised the UK’s cost of leaving the EU to €100 billion, from estimates varying from €40 billion to €60 billion before.”

News just in, I’m hearby raising the charge for stupidity from £400 to £8000, it is apparently easy to get money off you if you truly believe we will pay anything at all?

“Paddy Power and its equally powerful bookie ilk soon won’t be taking any bets below, say, €150 billion. In that regard, and many others, the EU will do to the UK what it is doing to Greece.”

Lol.  Seriously, I wouldn’t take any bets below €150 billion either, afterall, why would I want to lose money when making a bet?

The conservative party has for a long time had a very large split in it.  It started in 1972 when a lot of them thought they were joining a economic agreement or getting leverage over Europe etc etc, a few realized exactly what it was.  And the split has been getting more painful since with the problem being its much harder to overturn the status quo than continue with it.

If the vote last year had been to JOIN the EU then I reckon it would have been 30 to 70% against, and that is being optimistic.

 

The real news is France has commited to being behind the EU tariff wall when the UK leaves the EU, that means US and other companies can sell a product at between 12% to 40% cheaper if their cost of production is cheaper and the UK has a free trade agreement with them.

For us a free trade agreement with a country like the US is a no-brainer, for the US its a unique opportunity to take over EU market share.  When Le Pen gets in in 2022 it is going to be very hard for French companies to get back in, but the economic pain will really be something to behold, maybe the French will lead the way in sweeping the Muslims out, just the lower security costs would be a compelling economic advantage.

 

How The Left Maipulates Language To Make Dangerous Ideass Seem Benign

March 24, 2017

<!– Authored by ReturnOfKings.com via The Burning Platform, –>

The political left, as they like to style themselves because it sounds less threatening than the more honest ‘authoritarian control freaks, bases much of its campaign rhetoric on conflict-mongering. Left wing political movements have always had as their raison d’ê that they are against something; capitalism, monarchy, religion, inequality, injustice, whether real or fantasized. In the past, when the social orders of the developed world were dominated by rigid class systems that prevented social mobility, left wing politics masked the real nature of what it stood for, replacing the old oppressive elite with a new, often more oppressive elite, by posing as something positive or progressive, the defenders of the working class (or more emotively, ‘the downtrodden masses’. To this end, generations of communists, socialists and paternalistic liberals twisted language to make themselves appear benign while the demon of the day (capitalism, conservatism, religion etc. was pained as something evil and threatening.

Eighteenth century libertines claimed to defend “freedom” while faith became “fanaticism” and “superstition.” In reality they demanded total freedom for the rich from all moral constraints. Double standards and hypocrisy was rife among these ‘liberals.’ A young female servant who fell pregnant after an (often coercive) encounter with the master’s son was classed as morally deficient and condemned to a life of shame and infamy, while the man could evade any responsibility, simply on the basis that the word of a gentleman would always be believed over the word of a ‘low born’ person.

Later, Karl Marx paved the way for emotionally needy virtue signallers to pose as “intellectuals” siding with “the masses,” against authority. The problem there was the intellectuals only cared about the social kudos they could gain by presenting themselves as defenders of the defenceless. Their self image depended on the masses remaining as ignorant, grovelling and eternally grateful for the patronage.

Some manipulated the media into pretending they were part of the “oppressed,” Jews, Roman Catholics, homosexuals or lesbians and thus entitled to sympathy when they were actually hateful, anti-middle-class Marxists who believed their delusions of moral superiority entitled them to be part of a new, academic elite, a meritocracy.

The whole theory of “progress” as it exists in liberal democracies of the developed world where a consensus has formed around the ideology dubbed Cultural Marxism Marx—society ought is that a society should move from capitalism to a collectivist utopia in which the individual interest is subsumed under the desire to serve the community. This is wishful thinking, look what happened in Sovie yett Russian under the communist tyranny of Lenin and Stalin, in communist China under they tyranny of Chairman Mao and his Red Guard, in Cuba, the Soviet satellite states of Europe and most of all in Cambodia under the murderous regime of Pol Pot.

While casting themselves as liberators of the working class and rewriting history to present a self-favoring view of their rise to power, Marxist regimes have always quickly become dictatorships prepared to kill millions of innocent people in order to quash dissent. History seems to have forgotten that in 1870 the Russian anarchist Mikhail Bakunin warned Karl Marx that a future communist government would rapidly become more oppressive than the old monatchies of Russia and central Europe. History has proved him right.

Just as globalist corporatism destroys communities and enslaved poor and middle income families through debt, cultural Marxist ‘progressivism’ serves to destroy not only nations but cultures and communities. homelands. As long as people can be deceived by buzzwords into belieing some kind of utopia can be achieved if humans surrender their individual sovereignty to collective interests, the confidence trick that both socialism and communism are based on will retains its grip over their minds.

Socialism and communism are in fact the most extreme form of elitism. ‘The Controllers’, (as Aldous Huxley called them in brave New World) or ‘the inner party’ of George Orwell’s big Brother regime in the novel 1984 live in the greatest extremes of privilege and splendour while the masses labour in squalor.

Here are some of the buzzwords that are actual political ploys used by the left in their sinister schemes to worm their way into power.

1. Equality

Perhaps the most massive totem pole of it all. Written, shouted, used as a talisman an indefinite number of times, “equality” has been put forth to justify various mass killings from eighteenth century terror to twentieth century Bolshevism, and closer to us served to unleash female hypergamy and alien millions of young straight-white-males from the societies they should belong in.

Equality exists in mathematics. A number can be equal to another because an abstract unit can be replaced with another abstract unit without change. Mathematical equality exists because abstract units are identical with each other. Outside from the realm of pure quantity, qualitative differences emerge, and thus equality ought to be defined negatively as the absence of difference both in quantity and quality.

It is easy to see that equality between individual beings—not numbers—is a fiction, an attempt to perceive individuals as abstractions or numbers, void of any quality, personality or specificity. Equalitarianism stems from a rather incomplete view of the beings it pretends to apply to, and gets quickly used as a mask for envy or the will to grab something or exert power over someone.

Although equality can enter into the definition of true justice as equanimity—see Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, quote—, more than often, the word is used to foster particular interests at the expense of the wider social equilibrium, to fan the flames of division and sedition, and later, to deny vocations, human biodiversity, complementarity as it implies differences in nature and functions, not to mention ugly tradeoffs where some manipulative group plays the victim or claims rights to what doesn’t belong to them.

2. “Social” “justice”

Are you a victim? Are you victim of a particular inequality? Then you are living an injustice, and this wrong ought to be compensated. This simple framing has been widely used by anti-white, anti-male, anti-Western leftists to create a feeling of victimhood among various social categories. They used this powerful feeling to mount new social identities, inspired from Marxist classes—feminism isn’t about femininity but about women identifying as a separate, adversarial group, whose interests would be antagonistic to men’s—, and perpetual charges hung over the majority’s heads: Racist; Sexist; homophobe; Islamophobe; nationalist; And so on.

“Social justice” covers a blending of several features: an accusatory, anti-white, anti-male, anti-Western narrative, that taints and darkens past history; a feeling of victimhood and class identity for so-called “minorities” integrated into the wider narrative; the systematic, and very real, disenfranchisement and displacement of the majority that finds itself condemned to play the role of the bad guy—and hence charged—in said narrative. In this sense, “social justice” is deeply divisive, defamatory, aggressive, and amounts to a Moloch that eats families, nationhood, and most men.

Actual justice, call it social or not, is of course far from such a terrible conception. Methinks true justice should acknowledge the fact that we are the sons of the Western civilizations, its human substance and legitimate heirs, and that we have a prime right over it. We should have jobs, freedom of speech, protection over violent crowds, a right to fair judgment instead of getting screwed over by HR, “minority” impunity and pussy pass, a right to chances to thick relationships with at least some women instead of clowning our ways through hypergamy… Don’t forget we need to formalize at least some of our intuitions about what’s fair or not to replace the wicked theory of “justice” the Left shatters us with.

3. “Progress” (and the “reactionaries”)

This overrated buzzword has been straightforward long ago. Its Latin root, progressus, stems from the root verb gradior (walk, advance) and was mostly used in a military context, as in the sentence “the army is progressing into enemy territory.” Since then, it has been used analogically to qualify any advancement, even purely relative or fantasised ones.

The Left, following the pompous philosophies of Marx, Tolstoy, Lenin, Bertrand Russell and harold Laskey enshrined its own notion of progress into a general theory of history, thus making it absolute rather than relative. When various strands of modernity clash—for example, individual freedom and collective well-being, which one is “progressive”? Each can be used to fulfill a particular notion of progress. Aside perhaps from technological breakthroughs, “progress” is deeply relative. Even the most shining realizations of genius imply the sacrifice of thousands of potential choices that have been discarded during the process. The Left chose to forget this truth in order to judge everything and everyone from its own authoritarian and binary perspective.

If you do some research about such characters as, say, Ayn Rand and Lothrop Stoddard, you’ll notice they have been widely labelled “reactionary.” Yet each of them was a progressive in his own right. Rand considered industrial development and individual freedom as obvious landmarks of progress: she opposed vehemently to the environmentalist and collectivist—that is, anti-industrial, anti-economic growth, anti-conservative right as a “return of the primitive.”

<!– As for Lothrop Stoddard, he rebuffed Bolshevism and environmentalism as pre-scientific ratiocinations that willingly ignored human differences and the proper value of civilization. These “mistakes”, he said, are older than biological discoveries and stem from “degenerate” elements who would rather destroy civilization than letting it progress without them.

The only new thing about Bolshevism is its ” rationalizing ” of rebellious emotions into an exceedingly insidious and persuasive philosophy of revolt which has not merely welded all the real social rebels, but has also deluded many misguided dupes, blind to what Bolshevism implies. (Stoddard, Revolt Against Civilization, chap.8)

I also remember an old-fashioned Marxist who claimed feminism was “reactionary” because, he said, it comes from the wealthy and urbanized bourgeoisie, and hijacks the attention and care given to working classes for the benefit of actual exploiters. This guy’s progressivism has fallen out of grace, likely because it showed unable to destroy Western countries, but he is no less right according to his own logic.

Now, of course, we could say that MRAs are the real progressives as men’s rights are a progress, or that asserting our identities and associated rights are a progress, perhaps more so than SJW savagery and unrestrained hypergamy.

4. Openness or open-mindedness

We all heard about how being “open to new ideas” and possibilities, or being “open-minded” was good. In practice, what the liberals mean when they talk about openness or open-minded is “be a Leftist and believe in our notion of progress.” You have to be uncritical, hyper-sympathetic towards the last tranny or BLM activist that whines about how mistreated and misunderstood he is—and if you are “open” to wasting your money on the latest trendy fashion, it is even better.

But try being open-minded towards what the Left tags as “far right” or “extreme”, for example men’s right, race realism, skepticism on their dogmas such as anthropogenic global warming, or tradition… and it won’t be long before they shriek at you, in a typical display of rather irrational dirtiness psychology. “These ideas are impure! They are contagious!”

Open-mindedness along their lines means being gullible to media and college propaganda. You have to let the managers and social engineers fabric your consent, as Chomsky would put it. They want your mind to be open so they can fulfill it with self-hate and garbage. When it comes to better things libtards suspend open-mindedness, to the point of refusing any objective inquiry and hiding behind their biased, accusatory rhetoric.

In itself, openness or open-mindedness is a double-edged sword. It can, and should be used by those who are intelligent or morally structured enough to toy with potentially dangerous ideas. As to the others, those who are too easily tempted or misdirect by demagogues, especially women—who by their vote always favoured an anti-family, economy-devouring Big State—, the low-IQ and the unhinged, I think they should follow the lead of more qualified individuals.

5. Modern nationhood and citizenship

Since time immemorial peoples have been ethnocultural groups. Romans used the term natio to refer to a particular people, say, the Gaul, the Goths or the Basque. They also used the term civis to refer to a man as a member of his city, thus belonging to it.

Both words have been emptied of their substantial meaning. “Nation” is now mostly used to denote an abstract, bureaucratized State whom anyone can be a national if the bureaucrats hand him a stamped piece of paper. “Citizenship” refers to the pretense to identify with a particular public responsibility or to a world under globalist power: Leftists often claim to be “just citizens” or speak “in the name of the citizens of X place” when they are actually carrying cultural warfare. Remember when a bunch of hateful swindlers tried to rob Sherry Spencer, Richard Spencer’s mom, of her real estate by forcing her to sell it at a cheap price? Complacent media said they were just citizens, or that “the town” was doing it. Yeah, sure.

Citizenship today is a mean to virtue-signal when you are an urban elf. It has become empty, fictitious—it refers to a world of nowhere and more subtly to belonging to a globalist class that abandoned its actual fellow citizens or ethnic brothers long ago.

6. “Social struggles” and “achievements”

When they referred to actually good causes, such as trade unions maintaining a high standard of living for most workers and fostering a meritocratic middle-class, these words ringed well. Today, they seem to refer more to the unwarranted privileges of State officers—when theft through taxes and economic rent are presented as something “social.”

The heroic epic of “social achievements”, which conveniently forgets that there is no free lunch and that if a particular segment of population benefits much from them it must be at the expense of the others, covers a host of barely examined ill effects. When it is used to glorify the welfare State, it forgets how such a State tends to disintegrate organic social life by taking away charity or generosity, how it fosters a big parasitic and paternalist State, how it allows females to destroy their families, or how it attracts immigrants eager to get a check and imposes unfair burdens on the productive citizens—I’m thinking about, say, the middle classes who paid for Obamacare, not about cutting taxes for Monsanto.

Conclusion

From fake smiles and cute façades to seemingly innocuous buzzwords such as “you go girl”, “sex positivity” or “self-acceptance” – which sounds better than complacency – the culture conflict-mongerers managed to push their disruptions and degeneration into normality. One step at a time, from actual normalcy to an alien nation, all this believing they were cool or on the good side of history.

Shatter the illusion by explaining what stands behind and unveil the inner vacuity or potentially polymorphous use of the word. May progress not be “progress” and may the mainstream view of justice not be the anti-white, misandric “social justice.” They aren’t smarter than we are, just more manipulative. –>
