We’re covered in shit.
As I stared at this graffiti covered statue of Robert E. Lee while dipping my feet in a swimming pool on a hot summer day, it hit me. It seems like this is all we do now. It has become a routine.
We wake up in the morning, check the news, collect, document and deplore the shit that our culture has been covered with today. Tomorrow, we will repeat the process. We will repeat the same tasks the day after that and the day after that and the day after that and so on. It is like watching a river for twenty years become ever more polluted and toxic. The people who drink from it are becoming sicker.
Lately, Wokeness and Cancel Culture has come flooding down the polluted river, which a few years before in an earlier stage in the 2010s had been mocked and dismissed as “Social Justice Warriors” on college campuses. For twenty years before that in the 1990s and 2000s in a still earlier stage it had been deplored as political correctness as its chokehold on our culture grew stronger and stronger.
Conservatives have also seen modernism, free love, feminism, divorce, abortion, pornography, gay rights, gay marriage, gender non-conformity and transgenderism, mass immigration, multiculturalism, affirmative action and atheism come flooding down the same river. This has largely taken place since the 1970s and has accelerated in recent years. “Anti-racism” and “civil rights” preceded and paved the way for the triumph of these other social revolutions in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
As we have seen, the watershed moment that led to the present cycle, which in a way has given us all of these things was the American victory in World War II. It was in the 1940s that the vision of an American-led liberal world order triumphed which would be anti-racist, anti-totalitarian and anti-fascist. Unlike the older America, it would also be cosmopolitan. The only thing that mattered was liberal ideals. This myth of America as an essentially cosmopolitan nation based on civic nationalism without an ethnonational core was cooked up by a group called the New York Intellectuals in the 1930s.
White Nationalists trace all of these destructive social movements back to Jews. Wokeness and Cancel Culture ultimately trace back to Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse. Cosmopolitanism ultimately traces back to the New York Intellectuals. Anti-racism ultimately traces back to Leon Trotsky and Magnus Hirschfeld. The headwaters of everything that is wrong with our culture appears to be networks of Jewish arsonists who are deeply entrenched in the news media, entertainment media and universities dumping poison into our culture.
As the immediate or direct cause of our current predicament, this is a sound argument. Were it not for these Jewish networks which have hijacked control of all the key centers of our culture, none of this would be happening. History would have taken a different course. Why was this allowed to happen though? Why were Jews allowed to come here and hijack our country without a shot being fired? Why were they allowed to create Hollywood, buy up all the major newspapers, invade the universities, amass and wield their financial power over both major parties and displace the previous WASP elite? Why is it so difficult for the native population to rise up and do anything about it? Elections seem to change nothing.
It is because Anglo-Protestant culture already had a fatal flaw. It was exploited not unlike how the spike protein of COVID-19 exploits the ACE-2 receptors to invade and hijack the cells of its host. This flaw was liberalism which came to be the ideological foundation of our social order in the aftermath of the War Between the States shortly before Jews arrived en masse in America during the 1880s and 1890s. It was because of liberalism and free-market capitalism that the welcome mat was so cavalierly thrown out in the first place. Millions of European immigrants were needed to work in Northern factories.
As George Fitzhugh had realized by the 1850s, liberalism is fundamentally incompatible with all forms of authority, order, subordination and government. Therefore, it is also incompatible with social cohesion, continuity, stability, decency and normalcy. Even before the arrival of the Jews, the hallmark of liberal societies was a perpetual state of social revolution. Radical causes were already gaining traction in the cities because the social fabric there was already inflamed and diseased. Abolitionism was a radical utopian social movement that Jews played almost no role in fomenting. The social revolutions of the 19th and 20th centuries pushed liberalism deeper and deeper into our culture. The family and sexual mores, for example, was not completely undermined in the name of freedom and equality until the late 20th century.
The headwaters of the river of shit that has overwhelmed and debased our culture in the 21st century extends further back in time than the rise of our current Jewish elite networks in the mid-20th century. We have to travel back to the 17th century to find the source which coincides with the birth of modern philosophy. It is the erroneous doctrine of the sovereignty of the individual. It is because of this doctrine at the core of liberalism that our culture has lost the ability to defend itself and maintain order. Liberalism is a partial, distorted, one-sided account of the origin of human societies that neglects the collective.
What if every individual had the equal right to enter, throw trash into or to piss in my swimming pool? What would happen if we were to lose our understanding of a public swimming pool as a collective good? Would swimming still be an enjoyable experience? Probably not. This is essentially what has happened to Western culture which has been rotted to its foundations by liberalism.
It is true that Wokeness and Cancel Culture are illiberal and grounded in postmodernism and the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School. It is also true that our liberal elites enabled this garbage because it served their ends of repressing racism and nationalism in the postwar West. The very people who came up with this garbage were literally empowered in postwar West Germany where most of them returned after World War II to participate in the liberalization and Denazification of the country. It was West Germany which exported Antifa back to the United States in the 1980s.
In a sense, the Woke are kind of a solution to this river of shit. They have made it much more visible by taking offense at everything and declaring it “racism” and “white supremacy.” They are trampling on even the most basic liberal norms like law and order and the state monopoly on violence. Their ideological beliefs are so totally at odds with liberal norms that their ascendance will inevitably provoke a new crisis. They are destabilizing the system which is both a threat and an opportunity for us. In making themselves the new problem to the non-Woke, they invite discussion of new solutions to the resistance.
Where must we build the dam on this river of shit that has cursed us with these wretched people so that it never happens again? We need to build it around the doctrine of the sovereignty of the individual.
