I've changed it to this: "The welfare state is meant to make parts of society that don’t work well more functional. Unfortunately, this means functional in an ethically-approved sense. It doesn't mean good."

It's difficult to do a Twitter-length tag when the essay falls into two parts. Weirdly, being forced to write briefly on Twitter made me come up with a better tag.

Twitter has been known to improve my writing-

Although its not worth the time, which can be better spent.

Lorenzo hitting line drives: "If one draws attention to the social dysfunction, one will be attacked by the social justice social imperialists, who are committed to their identity-politics status and social-leverage strategies, and for whom indigenous folk are not people—with normal capacities for good and ill—but icons of identity who must fulfil the roles that Theory assigns to them."

Yes...

.... if you were American instead of English, or talking about America instead of England, I’d point out you have to choose now in real life between law and Civilization. What you can’t have and we can’t have, what no one in the West can have is both law and civilization.

The appeal to law is pathetic now, tragic and wretched past any point of even cruel humor.

Of course that was yesterday, in America now it’s a choice between the law and survival.

Fortunately in 🇺🇸 thanks to the Democrats we no longer have a Constitution, an act which invalidates all laws, actions which also releases me and all the other soldiers from our Oaths!

😅 Phew!

Thanks Democrats, that was going to be a tough one if we had to decide, Bless you for freeing us!

Now England, do you wish to perish or not?

And she whispered;

In America the Journalists perform the functions of the KGB in the old Eastern Bloc.

- which they are not - 🤣

But in the absence of anyone recognizing, ahem, that when being treated as the Irish ☘️ were, do as the Irish, Indians indeed anti colonialists DID, and I don’t mean Gandhi, in the absence of reciprocity for the harm...

... then Journos and Academic pooves and sellouts will act as they like. Its not as if they don’t hate and fear us here, and over there in Europe.

"If you think of the populace of Western democracies—especially but not only the working class—as a colonised population, many things make sense."

Wow this is chilling, true, and additionally disturbing because if I tried to explain it to 9 out of 10 of my friends they'd think I was nuts—cmon, it's a free country, and all those migrants are "just coming here for a better life" and all those journalists and bureaucrats are "just trying to make the world a better place" 🤮...(which proves to my Nietzschean brain once again that once a group captures morality, it's all smooth sailing after that).

I consider Social Justice Inc a new Church/State ruling coalition, which has been the basic ruling scheme since probably the first major civilizations, and which tends to both sides of the bifurcated human brain: the State shaping and directing our bestial needs while making sure the hierarchy remains the same, yet with its subjects still having enough freedom to meet their needs without killing each other; and the Church tending to our angelic side, providing a moral sheen and metaphysical justification for current arrangements, while allowing us all to prove our moral worth to each other by sitting through the required sermons and tithing to the poor box.

And when I think of Church/State dominance, I can't help but think of the Conquistadores who conquered the New World, battering their opponents with the Cross or the sword, depending upon the situation. So the song remains the same, yet now the Conquistadores are coming from inside the house, and they've hogged all the money and all the virtue for themselves. The only consolation is that our current cast of nobles are such obvious nonentities, and our current academic priesthood are such sterile joyless scolds who could turn Mardi Gras into a Struggle Session, that their reign will start to wear sooner than later (or one can hope).

Thanks again for another great piece!

Although I agree with your analysis of how we got here I am very uneasy with the way the essay equalises the various factors.

Take accounts of the Roman invasion of Gaul for comparison: the tribes were advanced for their time but perpetually at war, they ruthlessly allied with foreigners to destroy neighbours, their belief system was hospitable to foreign gods etc. OR Caesar, a Roman oligarch, took one look and thought "I will use and encourage all this to subjugate these idiots who do not realize that once I rule all of their pettiness comes to nothing". Exactly the same thing happened in 18th/19th C India.

Notice that some of the native oligarchs in both Gaul and India did very well out of being "conquered". They knowingly destroyed their own societies.

The modern oligarchy are like the Romans/British Empire, clear in their objectives, nudging Western societies towards weakness in the same way as Caesar encouraged the Gauls. See https://therenwhere.substack.com/p/nigel-farage-is-the-end-of-civilisation

I suppose the big question I ask when I read your articles is: are these changes an effect of geopolitical meddling or are they the cause of geopolitical change?

The answer to this question changes one's entire view. As an example, if Islamic migration to NW Europe was organic - due to legal and other structures that could not resist it - then it is creating waves of change by chance. Alternatively, if it is blindingly obvious that implanting a large Islamic group in NW Europe will damage and weaken European society then who stood to gain by driving this stake into the heart of a culture? If they win then where are they taking us?

I just scanned your article again. I agree with it. Nice job. It ends very near to my own view. The only real difference is that I think the international oligarchy is organised and ruthless and knows exactly what it is doing.

I am agnostic on how much foreign meddling there has been. Some, clearly.

With Muslim migration, that strikes me as well within historical patterns. There were huge flows of migrant population in the C19th. The main political deal was Temperate Zone workers generally successfully blocking Tropical workers, so you ended up with Temperate Zone flows and Tropical flows.

Yes, what can appear to be foreign meddling such as the Tamils in Sri Lanka, allegedly imported from India by the Brits, can turn out to be movements from other causes, even as early as the Pandyas 2000 yrs ago.

BTW, Anurhadapura and Polonnawaru are some of the most interesting places you can visit. Not too far from Australia.

I just wonder how this will fall apart, especially with the Muslim population having a high birth rate, and the progressives of Europe having a very low one. There will be a point where that shift starts to drastically alter the culture and politics of the county. What will happen then?

Excellent question. I am a sceptic of specific prediction, but there are a range of scenarios one can envisage, of varying degrees of disastrousness.

I feel like the gender madness in education will disappear within 10 years because of that demographic shift, however the racial politics will have much longer consequences, unfortunately.

The wokeies seem to think they are insulated from whatever cultural and political effect the migrant population inevitably will have -- the migrants “don’t have any power” in the system, so they aren’t capable of making seismic changes. Whites are an omnipotent race, according to the progressive, anti-white-supremacist-anti-racists. I am not looking forward to the day they wake up and realize this just isn’t so.

Glad to be of service, much of what you have written I broadly served in my article on the pseudo-pandemic. By centring on broad perspectives and subjectivities have provided some detailed focus on differential areas of interest. Colonisation and imperialism are no more viewed from a distance in western democracies, but are recognised in an awareness of being colonised by the forces of capital that via the free market, neoliberal tenets, principles and characteristics as broad or as some academics say unrecognisable or inconsolable are intrinsic to the contemporary political and historical period. Social pathologies by the neoliberal Global project are being ignored, serviced and opposed due to a monopoly of argument and university curriculum. Western democracies are saturated by framed repetition and indoctrinated higher educated elites in politics an the general voting public. Fortified by the supply side of politics that leans into demand buy voter cohort that is most likely to turnout in election cycles and dominates by values, issues and ideology, predominantly the higher educated and over 40 yrs of age. Meaning supply plays to demand and excludes those disenfranchised, disaffected and resentful under 40s with less life experience less likely to vote and less likely to participate in traditional political strategies eg. voting at elections.
