In his latest article, Mencius Moldbug spends like 6,000 words (I didn’t count) to say in his usual roundabout way that our hostile Jewish elite, whose rise to power in the mid-20th century was made possible by the liberal order, is motivated by hubris, paranoia and malice.
“Pervasive error is any systematic and significant distortion of thought that impacts the whole discourse of a civilization.
Folk superstitions do not qualify. Fashion flows downward from social elites. Genuine pervasiveness must compromise the elites.
Elites also disproportionately participate in governance. In historical cases of pervasive error, we often see a sovereign etiology. We can expect our theory to somehow touch on power and the state.
Which is as far as we should go in expecting. We can only build a useful theory of pervasive error by working carefully forward from axiomatic principles, not backward from observed reality—thinking logically, not scientifically.
I know this is weird. Let’s start by justifying this unconventional methodology. …”
I like Curtis.
It would be simpler just to say that these people should not be our elite because their historical experience and sympathies, especially in the wake of World War II, are far too out of sync with their host countries to be their cultural and political leadership. They are currently destroying their host nations out of their own insecurity and that is a toxic relationship.
Note: Does that really sum it up?
I’m afraid that it does. The old WASP elite which used to rule this country would have been wise enough to reverse course by now. I don’t think it would have pushed liberalism to these extremes. There is a reason why contemporary America has surpassed the Weimar Republic.
