There’s a madness which descends on elites during the collapse phase of an imperial lifecycle. It is the apogee of decadence, when the reality bubble around the imperial elite floats off into thin air to meet the waiting pins of reality. This is the stage at which pampered Austrian princesses are told that the peasants have no bread, and reply they should eat brioche. It’s also the stage at which life inside the empire takes on an air of unreality and lies are everywhere, such as Rousseau’s (typical) lie quoting Marie Antoinette. It’s the moment when Wile E. Coyote has run off the cliff but not realised it yet. The… Read the rest
God doesn’t like government. Despite what the popular culture and received tradition of Churchianity would have us believe, God’s preferred political system is very far from the bloated leviathan vampire states that rule us today. God’s system of governance makes libertarianism look like a nanny state.
In the Bible narrative, government emerged after the flood. Babylon provides the archetype of everything God doesn’t like about the world system that the devil is consolidating today – idolatry, hedonism, financial enslavement and a false religion which concentrates the worship of the dislocated masses upon the leaders of the state. Pretty much everything you’d see at a Bernie Sanders rally today.… Read the rest
Everyone takes their gods seriously. If you were to visit pre-conquest Central America and begin joking with the locals about Quetzalcoatl’s funny headdress, you may well join the thousands being ritually sacrificed to him (feathers be upon him) during the next religious festival. If you instead travelled back to 1920’s Moscow and started talking dirt about Lenin and Marx’s facial hair in a bar, you would probably get a one-way ticket on the next slow train to Siberia. And if you were to travel to anywhere these days in the Dar al-Islam and point out Mohammed’s well-known pedophilia, well… we know what happens to people who mock Islam…
It’s one of the constants of human nature that we will uphold the honour of our gods.… Read the rest
In school you were probably indoctrinated with one or both of two historiologies: the accidental and the progressivist theory of history. Both require great leaps of faith. The accidental theory of how history operates is premised upon scientific materialism, if it is premised upon anything at all. Proteins and amino acids bumped together in puddles until they made DNA then one day, poof! The Holy Roman Empire. It’s always struck me how much doublethink is required for such an outlandish philosophy of how history operates, and the low value this belief system places on human life. According to this faith, you’re a well-behaved monkey.… Read the rest
Why do Western rulers confiscate around half of the earned income of the productive members of society when they could just print it? In an age of fiat currency, it makes no sense at all.
It makes no sense unless you still believe your pre-programmed narrative of socialist redistribution – that you need to pay your fair share to help those less fortunate than you. If you believe that Marxist drivel, you’re in the wrong place. I thought I earn my pittance because I studied hard, get up early, was prudent and don’t headbutt my sociopath witch of a boss. It’s not fortune that makes the middle class.… Read the rest
Why are our fellow peasants mentally disturbed, our relationships cold, our families broken, our communities dissolved and civility disappearing from our lives? Because the state replaced the family.
Now I’m no fan of family personally. Mine was worse than a Romanian orphanage, and I know many people whose experiences were similar. But there’s a reason for that. Once families lost their natural function, they necessarily ceased to function. Many became breeding grounds for personality disorders and incubators for the gibsmedats and dindunuffins who populate our underclass. How did this happen? Indeed, why do we have an underclass?
It was socialism. Since the first humans were created by God/crawled down from the trees/both/whatever, we have survived by relying on kinship networks.… Read the rest
