Wordism Won’t Work

Posted by Bob on July 3rd, 2009 under Coaching Session, History, Political Correctness

There is a giant revival of Ayn Rand going on.

Ayn Rand is the perfect focus for today’s frustration. She has brilliant criticisms of the liberal mentality. You get to object to your heart’s content. But in the end she is harmless. She demands an and to all of a bugaboo called “government.

I was here when they had the last big Rand, “Objectivism,” boom, in the 60s. No one was allowed to take on the assumptions behind the New Frontier, Great Society, hippy liberalism of the 60s, so Rand was perfect.

There was a group called Preform. It was to get or build an island for a group of people who would live according to the Book of Rand. There was to be no government, only contracts between individuals.

The world would leave them alone, because they were a sovereign area. Preform Island would have no military. Any attack would presumably defend itself by a spontaneous posse of individuals. Here is one of the obvious cracks in the religion of Objectivism.

The idea was that this army of total individuals would contract with each other to fight. Remember this is a Wordism based entirely on personal advantage. It is made up of people who are not just totally self-interested, but whose ONLY motivation is self-interest. Ayn Rand’s magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, a number of strong characters opposing the universally milk sops leftists. But not one of them had or planned to have any children.

Rand’s husband had himself sterilized.

I haven’t been in a lot of combat. The WWII Generation says my little firefights were not REAL combat. They tell each other that Korean War vets were in “the police action,” not in a Real War. But I can’t imagine, in the fights I was in, that a Completely Self-Interested Individual would honor an impersonal CONTRACT in those crucial minutes when he could just get off the firing line. How could Randian Wordism justify someone in going right into the fire to make it possible for an isolated buddy to fall back?

They can’t even justify LOYALTY to their own children, much less a stranger they made a contract with.

Similar to Randianism, and my own field of special study in my doctoral work in economics, was the field of Public Choice, in which two of my professors got Nobel Prizes. It comes to many brilliant and accurate conclusions, as Rand does. It sees voting as the outcome of self-interest on the part of voters.

But its first failure is similar to the one I just cited for Objectivism, it is so simple and fundamental that, for people like so many BUGS commenters, they instantly get away from it and go on to less simplistic subjects.

This is that failure: under the assumptions of Public Choice, it is not rational for an individual voter to vote AT ALL. It costs time and effort to vote. If your vote is entirely for your own self-interest, there is no way in the world to justify your standing in the voter line for one minute.

People vote be because they want a say in how THEIR SOCIETY will go. The idea of getting some INDIVIDUAL to go to the polls on the basis of his own personal self-interest is absurd. The idea that the world would ignore Preform Island is absurd, and the idea that a group of totally self-interested vigilantes would hold together under fire without LOYALTY is a concept only a hypnotic Wordist can take seriously.

That is why the establishment allows Rand to be published in massive editions in the new craze. That is why Public Choice is allowed to get Nobel Prizes. Both of them deny racism or nativism or any other loyalty. And the priesthood of Political Correctness has no fear of anything but LOYALTY.

    A few months ago I was invited to a debate with a rabid Anti-White.

    She kicked off the debate by telling everyone how much she felt compelled to stand to ‘racists’ like me, especially because she had two White kids.

    So I had some fun demanding that this Anti-White give reasons as to why her own children should be replaced with the children of North African Muslims, as the new majority population of the UK.

    I kept threatening to call HER a racist if she did not comply.

    And so when she did betray her own kids, with talk about how ‘we all bleed red’ and ‘the White race is just a social construct’ etc. etc. I then switched it around. And demanded to know if she would use those same arguments to justify the replacement of Black children in African countries. And that I would think she was racist against Black Africans if she did.

    She could not go there. And she had to admit it was only her own she was using this logic to against.

    At this point GAME OVER! She lost all credibility and became a bit of a laughing stock to all who were there.

    (Trust me, you had to be there) It woke up everyone who witnessed our little debate.

    The point is, That’s Mantra Thinking! If I had talked about ‘Black crime stats’ ‘scheming Jews’ and ‘our beautiful White race’ I would still be there now. Being used like everyone’s favorite verbal punch bag.

    LN you could have gone respectable and talked about “equality” and then been laughed off the stage like any old fool (McCain comes to mind).

    Or the AR strategy of IQ and nothing but IQ.

    The “social construct” argument is about dead no matter how hard the semi-respectables try and keep it alive. I think the Ricci case is waking them up to the fact that the left is dead serious about defining race in “real” terms as to who or whom gets what.
