Before Zoroastrianism became the Pure Death Cult inherited in its degenerate phase By St. Paul and other genuine intellectuals when Zoroastrianism was the other main religion, it was limited to Aryans, as in the name s Iran and Erin.
One person did a Google and said I was wrong. He pointed out that every single page that aims to be Modern Zoroastrian states flatly that anyone is welcome to be a Zoroastrian, regardless of race. So they couldn’t have said that.
I asked him if he had Ever seen any OTHER religion where the first thing they hammer on is how race is no barrier. I asked him WHY he thinks the Zoroastrians wannabes hit so HARD on that. He got it then. You don’t go to such huge lengths to deny something that never OCCURRED to you. They are rejecting their real history, confirming it IS their real history.
I was simply LISTENING closely. He stayed on the surface and repeated what they SAID without thinking about WHY they said it.
This was not unique to Zoroastrian Persia. At its height the original Olympic Games had the original Olympic Oath, which included the oath that “I am of pure Hellenic blood…”
Zoroastrianism went from being racist to becoming a Death and Sterility Creed. As we move away from racism, our psychology makes every crisis, from Soylent Green to Global Warming, an argument for not having children.
People who use the word “liar” freely are never truthful people. So I see it as a big word when I use it. But I have to now.
They fired Dr. Watson, co-Nobel Laureate, for saying that Africa’s problems are a result of low IQ’s.
The Bell Curve was a best-seller when it made that clear beyond dispute. So what have they done? They simply outlawed saying that.
In the 1950s, there was no such thing as schizophrenia. You could only call it The Schizophrenic Response. That was to make it clear that all professionals agreed it was a RESPONSE having nothing to do with human chemistry or, God knows, GENETICS.
All experts agreed on that, hence the term.
Once again, a tiny group began to look at the TESTS. The proof of the pudding was that one treated The Schizophrenic Response only by TALKING a person out of the trauma that caused that Response. But, as with racial IQ, the tests came out wrong. The American Psychiatric Association condemned such testing.
But tests on drugs by the FDA showed that they DID work. A drug company official can go to prison for selling something that comes out wrong in tests. If the psychiatrists then had sold their far more expensive Talk Cure treatments as a drug, they would have gone to prison for selling them.
Now the psychiatrists have made sure that only psychiatrists can prescribe many of those drugs. So they admitted they were wrong. But they never SAY they were wrong. The Schizophrenic Response has gone down the Memory Hole, like racial IQ analysis.
Mommy Professor has stopped trying to deal with testing that leads to heresy and has gone to outright suppression. They do not deal with Dr. Watson the way they did with Dr. Jensen.
Why does information get produced? There is no other way you can understand this new phenomenon. Suddenly the tests have begun to come out RIGHT.
Recently a whole group of tests has come out showing that the Talk Cure works and drugs do not, the way it should have come out in the first place. This is not even logical, since the problem is now universally admitted to be chemical and a diagenetic rather than a response.
The Genome Project always comes out RIGHT. Every testing that is financed is now a Just So Story.
In the past, making up one’s test results before you started risked exposure, even in the vacuum-sealed halls of academe. They’ve learned from that. The exposure of the open frauds by Global Warning advocates is just the surface, the one time they got caught. If they openly cheat on that kind of test, what kind of License to Kill do they have on RACE?
So far nobody but me has pointed out how obvious this is: “to be a forensic pathologist, you have to do two things,
1) deduce the race of a victim from the tiniest rotting remains, and
2) Join all the other Recognized Experts in denying that race exists.”
The era of the Jensens and Rushtons is OVER. The Bell Curve would not be published today. No book or treatise will be published if it contradicts orthodoxy, and certainly no study will be FINANCED if it does not guarantee results ahead of time.
The bottom line is that we will no longer be ALLOWED long explanations. We have watched the Mantra being routinely blacked out everywhere. But we sneak it in. You can’t sneak a TOME in.
We must use short, devastating stuff, like the Mantra or my description of what a forensic pathologist must do. The era of Jensen is passed. The era of BUGS has begun.
Back in the days before every white gentile went into automatic fetal position, their reaction was passive-aggression.
A reporter demanded to know if the country club John Kennedy belonged to barred Jews. His reply was, “Hell, they don’t even let in CATHOLICS.”
Barry said he belonged to a country club, but they only let him play nine holes because he was half Jewish.
Goldwater said he was sick and tired of being saying he waffled on integration:
“If someone asks me about segregation, I look them straight in the eye and say: ‘Where are you FROM?’”
They looked up Wallace’s records from his combat days and found that he had been treated for extreme stress. Was he able to take on the responsibility of being president?
Wallace answered, “After the treatment psychiatrists approve me to go back to the war.”
He added, “I have papers that say I’M sane. What have YOU got?”
We are actually getting out there and USING the Mantra. I can now use your examples of the results. One has to do with this passive-aggressive method. Most of the “replies” to the Mantra are simply pointing out that the responder is for Love and Brotherhood and we are against it.
An old anti-Communist told us at the Republican Leadership Training Convention in 1962 that his opponents in debate would point out that Communism was for Equality, Brotherhood, Fairness and so forth. How could he be against this Idealism?
He responded, “You remind me of a fish swimming along who sees a worm a fisherman is using as bait. The fish says to himself, That is good food, good protein, and it will taste good. Why shouldn’t I eat it?”
He then said, “The problem with the worm is the same problem you don’t see in Communism:
“There’s a HOOK in it!”
You can USE this.
And while we are in practical debate mode, let me remind you of Pain’s absolutely brilliant method for introducing the Mantra:
“Do you want to hear my Conspiracy Theory?”
In a REAL discussion that is pure gold! You get in the Mantra as they are waiting for the joke!
Passive-aggressive strategy again. There’s nothing like it.
You notice all the water boarders were kids in uniform.
Reporters are always asking if people would use torture in questioning. If you watch the experts on that closely, their body language is impatience. The REASON reporters ask this is because torture is sexy topic. By contrast real professional interrogation is BORING.
But torture is not the question. Torture simply does not work. Torture, from the Inquisition to the Democratic Peace Loving Peoples’ Republics, has always been used when you know what you want someone to say. It makes them say it.
Asking a pro about torture is like asking a jockey about carrying the horse.
To yield results, you want your subject caught quickly and BORED. Torture is a lot of things, but it isn’t boring. A bored man will TALK. He will give you all those little reactions you need so badly. You can find reasons to talk about a list of towns, one by one. You can see the one that hits home, something is going on there.
You don’t know WHAT, but you’ve got a WHERE. Then you need to think about it and orient your discussion accordingly, preferably days later. For the press, this is useless. As I said, a real description of that dramatic word Interrogation would lose readers fast.
As to whether one might be WILLING use torture, one thing I have never heard a Nam vet talk about was looking at a village after the Peace Loving Liberation Army got through with it. The media do NOT want to discuss that. All that kind of thing was done by the Nazis, and any discovery on that is publishable.
Stalin killed millions of people before and after the War, but during the War he never hurt a soul but the Enemy
I saw what the Anti-Racist Liberation Fighters did to people in Africa and South America, but none of that was ever discussed in the media or in the World Council of Churches, which supported them. But when terrorism hit New York, the whole thing changed.
I still wonder what the media’s reaction would have been if it was their beloved Idealists who did 9-11. They devoted untold resources for decades to proving that Oswald, fellow Idealist, did not kill Kennedy.
Nobody discusses this Idealistic Communist theme of the media. A lot people were for torture after 9/11. I can’t tell you my attitude because the question is thrilling but totally irrelevant. I cannot say I would not use torture to prevent what I saw happen. But the point is torture is useless.
As usual when the media take a topic up, it’s just STUPID.
Anyone who knows instances where torture was useful are welcome to correct me. I never saw any hint of it myself, and it is totally out of synch with any interrogation technique I know about. We were trying to find out information. Torture is used to make people say what you WANT them to say.
“Integration is like mixing sugar with s***. It doesn’t help the s*** and it RUINS the sugar.” A NORTHERN senator said that in the 1950s. Our whole society today is based on the idea that when groups mix, it helps correct the problems of the deprived group.
That is not how things work in general. “One rotten apple spoils the barrel.”
How many sane people would believe that if you take a bunch of largely foul-mouthed hostile kids and put them in with normal kids, the result will ALWAYS be that it affects the normal children not at all, but it ALWAYS improves the former group?
Every time, without exception.
Well, that is what EVERY, repeat EVERY “scientific” study of racial busing, EVERYWHERE, shows.
Once again, no one ever puts in these simple Mantra terms. Just STATING the thing makes it a laughing stock. But no one will do that. You cannot explain this in terms of “bias.” The information STARTS this way, it isn’t a group of otherwise serious people who happen to show bias in one area.
You can’t start with this bias crap. You have to START with the question, “Why was this information PRODUCED?” There is racial busing, therefore there MUST be public studies on it. This is entirely different from saying that academics are really interested in the subject. In a society where you can be ruined or arrested for debating diversity or integration, there is simply no demand, no grant money, no publication and no curiosity about any actual results, and we call know it.
But no one ever SAYS this. It makes the Professional Academics, whom respectable conservatives have to worship with their butts in the air, into paid actors. Bit you simply cannot state the question without he answer being obvious.
So no one states the question. For those who don’t like these “studies,” what you can SELL, the information you can PRODUCE, is a Conspiracy Theory. The conspiracy theory is the only opposition.
Go back to the god damn BASIC QUESTION: Why is this information PRODUCED?
Our information is NOT produced because no one is interested in the BASIC question.
You will find that you will always find people wanting got get you off boring reality, your repeatedly returning to Why is this information produced? They want to talk about something they can enjoy, like Jews or Conspiracies or their the sort of pet theories we see in so many comments.
Over many, many years of trying to make people see the obvious, an alarm bell goes off in my mind when I find the talk has become lively. It used to always mean that we had gotten off the subject. I am fascinated by seeing the obvious realities. Most people do all that when they are in school or trying to impress others. When they talk they want to be entertained.
For that reason basic questions are ignored. To put this in basic terms: No one demands that THAT information be produced.
When I point out that in every area where there is money and power there is headline corruptions, except one, the press, almost everybody responds with the same two answers:
1) Of course, and
2) That’s paranoid Conspiracy stuff.
But the critical stuff here is that 1) and 2) are not replies from two different groups. In a long conversation, almost every average person will say BOTH things. Again, other people don’t notice it because they don’t reduce what is said to BASIC terms. They don’t KNOW that what they are saying is simply “Of course” and “That is paranoid thinking.”
Most people would not understand the progression of this article. I started with a criticism of studies on integration, but instead of repeating all the contradictions of those studies, I went on to THINKING ABOUT why these errors are made. You won’t find a discussion like this elsewhere.
Mention warped studies on race and you will face a deluge of statistics and denunciations. No one analyzes, IN DEPTH, what everybody knows, how studies that are paid for and get published, are produced. This leaves the other side at least as strong as you are. In the end, we just quote other studies. They’re ready for that.
What they are not ready for is an explanation of why everybody knows what studies are going to say. Everybody knows it, but nobody SAYS it.
The ONLY cure for this is BUGS and Mantra Thinking.
THINK, then and Say It.
Combat to the bigger risks I took among the addicts were not the real trials for me. There is an exhilaration in taking risks. In a firefight you join with others. For me, that was a relief. All my life I fought alone.
One major thing that happened to the Obedient Generation was that they learned that nothing is RIGHT unless you do it in a mob. As Mencken said military thinking is the worst kind of training for free men. It teaches them not to do anything unless it is Groupthink.
“You learn to give orders,” the cliché goes, “By learning to TAKE orders.” That is fine for a slave overseer, but not for a free man.
Ann Rice was talking about her youth being what they called a Free Spirit in California. She said, somewhat wonderingly, that these Free Sprits would ask each other, “Are WE still boycotting grapes?” I doubt most of her readers got the full impact of that.
Those in the sixties who thought they were rebelling against their Obedient Generation fathers did not have any idea how exactly like their fathers they were. As Rice pointed out, in order to be a Free Sprit, you joined the Free Spirit Movement. You thought just like every other Free Spirit, just like a good soldier.
You even wore a uniform! We all knew “hippies” from their clothes. You could tell someone’s hippie politics from a block away, exactly the way you knew a soldier or a sailor.
When the media refer to the Youth Movement, they mean a group of people of a certain age who they insist think exactly alike. Those who insist they are anti-stereotype always refer to young people as “idealistic,” meaning they think like the old lefty who can’t admit he’s getting old.
In the Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn kept repeating that a free man had to have “a personal point of view.” In his years Soviet concentration camps, he got an idealistic vision of Americans. Actually, he would have been at home among Americans before his generation.
But when he got here, he raised hell. He was shocked to find that the last people who have a personal point of view in America was our self-described “free thinkers.” He said t hey were kind of free thinkers he had seen in the KGB.
One of the greatest compliments I ever got was from Bill Rusher. He said that at the weekly editorial meeting someone had commiserated with Buckley, “You have gotten jumped on this week by both Solzhenitsyn AND Whitaker.”
I couldn’t quite believe that someone, someone hostile, had actually put me in THAT category!
In one way, miles distant, we were alike. Solzhenitsyn had done his fighting ALONE. He had been a dissenter in a totalitarian state. He had been in World War II, and on the Eastern Front, the one that made France look like a picnic. But he saw that as a good time in his life, before he was arrested on the front and sent to the Gulag.
Solzhenitsyn looked at others as the World War II Generation looked at everybody else. The obedient Generation said, “Nobody else could join thousands of others in an attack?”
As a matter of fact, MILLIONS of other did that, and some of them were pre-teens.
But Solzhenitsyn asked something rare, and even rare among SURVIVORS of tyranny: “Could this person be where I was and maintain a PERSONAL point of view in a situation which makes the hardest combat seem like a wonderful dream?”
He quickly came to DESPISE Modern Age Americans. He was right that if Americans put on Soviet costumes they would make good KGB.
I will never quite get over being put together with that man, however briefly. And the guy who did was not aware he was complimenting me.
One thing about the Obedient Generation sticks out to me like a sore thumb.
So nobody else notices it.
Fifty percent of that generation took some advantage of the GI Bill for college. They went straight from learning that Sergeant whipping them and being worshiped to Mommy Professor telling them how he and his fellow Idealists and Intellectuals should rule the world. It is hard to imagine a more effective combination to make slaves of Americans.
No wonder they were THEN known as the Silent Generation. They had absolutely no training but how to obey. Stay butt-up to your sergeant and then repeat what Mommy Professors said word for word. They did not become vocal until they were GIVEN PERMISSION to do so from the establishment:
“You are so much better than the guys fighting Progressive Socialism in Vietnam. Yours was the Good War.” The louder they proclaimed this, the more praise they got.
Shari’s right — as usual — the draft was the natural continuation of this process. Look at how we warped our young people: Ideally a young person reaching the age when they used to have to make decisions entered an eight-year Politically Correct incubation period.
Young people who would have been learning a trade or determining their future at age fourteen began high school and did four-years, freshman-sophomore-junior-senior. THEN began ANOTHER four years under Mommy Professor. Then they were supposed to be drafted and go from Mommy Professor to Mommy Sarge.
Those who were drafted first reverse this process after the high school four years. If you ever wonder how Americans became the mindless slaves they are, THINK ABOUT this process.
Every now and then I am delighted to see concentrated discussions of action on the Mantra. But they’ve died out. What I am getting now is musings on the world in general. There are worse things than stimulating thought, most of it highly literate, but it isn’t our WAR.
I can’t tell what you are doing out in the real world of if you don’t report on it. Gator said I should give an assignment each week. Gator, no one takes my “assignments.” I begged BUGSers for months to simply put good BUGS entries on Stormfront, just copy and paste, and the only person who did it was Brain, who already has too much to do.
Gator put the Mantra out and said so. He seems to be almost unique lately. I am sure our old solid group, like Lord Nelson, are out there doing it but they don’t REPORT it.
There is, of course, the problem that I am almost blind here. I had to bitched and complained to Gator that I couldn’t FIND his piece at the link he gave. All I cold see was the title and the statement that there were 14 comments on it, then it listed other topics.
I finally SCROLLED DOWN and found the whole thing and the comments. Gator assumed I would naturally do that in the first place. When someone is as dense as I am in these things, there’s not a hell of a lot Gator or anybody else can do for me.
But Bob is your main instrument here. Don’t feel sorry for yourself. I have to face the fact that Bob is all I have. I used to tell my wife, “If you think putting up with me is bad, try BEING ME for a while.”
I got her sympathy with that one!
As for giving assignments, I can only quote General Lee: “I cannot get my orders carried out.” If General Lee had that problem, you can’t expect this lesser Robert to handle it. Gator got fourteen comments, and SO FAR, he has found a forum where his Mantra has not been wiped out. This gave him a chance to make a FURTHER comment on the replies.
We have not had much chance to talk about comments because the Mantra is usually wiped out almost immediately. This illustrates my point: I am almost dead blind here. I don’t know how many discussions are going on that I don’t hear about. And this is vital to me.
Gator says 11 of the 14 comments probably came from BUGS people. But folks like to PLAY with their screen names. It seems to be considered cute. So one commenter uses several names here, and the comments there were under several names. Where does that leave ME or anybody lese trying to analyze replies?
Please consider my position when you get cute with screen names. In this case they may have been necessary to make two comments instead of one in one name.
But not one commenter SAID he got in there!
I’m BLIND here, gang!
But I was DELIGHTED to see that in those Gator comments our folks grabbed onto the “You are justifying genocide line, which is the second punch in discussing Mantra, and HELD onto it.
If 11 of the comments were from us, that has its encouraging side. They did it RIGHT. When you are forming your first team as we are, getting it RIGHT is critical to your coach.
We are lighting a fire. Modern men have a hard time with lighting a fire without matches because they are used to just flipping a lighter. Doing it from scratch is a LONG process. We have come a long way in igniting a fireplace, but when it comes to lighting the kind of fire we are doing, the old process is still there.
In history books the process of forming an idea and then making it knows looks quick, “Thirty years later, it was common knowledge.” When you are reading a history books, thirty years doesn’t impress you. But every single one of those years was REAL and SLOW to those living it.
I have hit and hit and hit and finally I have a tiny spark. It takes forever to create a tiny spark, and then you have to puff and not blow to keep it going, to keep from killing it. That is when you are trying to start a campfire.
We are changing the WORLD.
In fact it is the difficulties we have that demonstrated that we are trying to do something that big. At this stage, I am more than happy to see a few of us get it RIGHT.
This is a play on “The Generation Gap.”
I don’t have one. When I was in the AA and NA recovery programs I had a line of people mostly young, asking me to sponsor them. That is proof that whatever I was offering was actually WANTED.
In old America, there was no “adolescence.” You were a boy or girl or you were part of the men of the house like anybody else. If you were fool you could get your family KILLED :
“Stupidity has ALWAYS been a capital offense.”
The media has used this adolescence” or Stages of Growth crap to show how YOUNG at heart they are by being leftist. Young people, they say, SHOULD be Idealistic, i.e., Marxist, in their Youth, so a leftist is just a person who has kept that Youthful Outlook.
I wasn’t and I see no more excuse for a young person being an idiot than for an old one to.
So I don’t have a Generation Gap. No respectable is going to say that a young moron is just a moron. I have the same problem with a fifteen-year old anti-white that I do with a sixty year old one:
They aren’t THINKING.
You know me well enough to realize I didn’t go for popularity in the program. A sponsor has a life and death business on his hands. If my people didn’t do BETTER in recovery, meaning in SURVIVAL, I would have stopped doing it.
A higher percentage of the young people who are serious addicts die than of the COMBAT MERCENARIES I knew. And THOSE were the young addicts who made it to recovery! In both combat and recovery, stupidity in officers or sponsors has always been capital offense for the people they are responsible for.
The fact is that in the old days you couldn’t afford adolescence. You did not go out hunting with a 14 year old who might shoot you in the back by stupidity.
I don’t have a Generation Gap. The Generation Gap was invented. Like all information, for a PURPOSE, and that purpose was to make anti-whites seem idealistic and youthful rather than what they are, which is stupid traitors.
What I face is a Thinking Gap, and I face that with EVERYBODY. It is true that young people are more ankle-deep in Mommy Professors than other people. But that is no worse than older people who think they are “adult” and therefore far less correctable. The one thing worse than ignorance is MILITANT ignorance.
It is a curious phenomenon that older people ask any young person, “How does your generation think?”
They would be most offended if someone asked THEM “How does your generation think?” That’s different. They are all over the place, of course. I have given this a lot of thought and have found several sources of this illusion.
First of all, there is the modern media’s use of The Youth Culture. They think that all “youth” thinks like them so they are The Wave of the Future. They have been looking for proofs of this and reporting it all my life.
I remember seeing opinion surveys in the mid-60s which showed that eighty percent of the so-called Hippie Generation, eighty percent, thought that longhair on males was effeminate! Such information did not make it to CBS Nightly News.
Another source of this “What Young People Think” is that older people do not realize that gestation ends at a very early age. We talk about the third month of pregnancy, the sixth month of pregnancy. Then we talk about the crisis when a kid learns to say “No!” at age two, the Terrible Twos.
To older people, children are at A Stage of Development. It seems that the older you get, the longer anyone younger than you is at a Stage of Development.
I was never an idiot, so I was never a socialist, but socialism is always looked upon as a Stage of Development, the Youthful Idealist. Old or young, you have to be feeble minded to think a bunch of bureaucrats, with Mommy Professor guiding them, can run the economy well.
True, a larger number of people who have just left their real mommies and are first exposed to Mommy Professor do take his pretenses seriously. But people who do that generally have parents who haven’t brownout it themselves.
Don’t wonder where the new generation is coming to before you think about where it is coming FROM.
Stage of gestation and the Youth Culture Thinking are two factors. There is another that is more general.
If someone asks you about your own city where you have lived for decades, it will very complex to your mind. You will know the figures personally, the history intimately You will know many occurrences, now solidified into Inevitable History, that could easily have gone either way.
But to you ANOTHER city’s characteristics are much simpler. That is one reason Jews are such Great Philosophers. Ask them about Jewish thought and they will give you a solid hour of detail and complexity. Ask them about the outside world and they will find it very simple.
Ask a Frenchman about Germans and he will tell you they are simply Bad or Uncultured. Ask a Jew about ANYBODY else and they will tell you they are Bad. SIMPLY bad. At best, they are trying to be better, but all gentiles are basically bad people who maybe trying to withhold their irrational hatred of Good Jews.
This is not a big secret or a Conspiracy. It is the theme of sermons every Saturday allover the world.
But the most relevant point here is that Jews think of Gentiles as good or bad SIMPLY by their attitude toward Jews or, in the absence of specifically anti-Semitic behavior, in terms of how they treat minorities Jews identify with, the other who are Suffering, the them that seems to be the only justification today for being a Jew.
Real Jews will often say that the Holocaust killed Judaism or Israel killed Judaism. What they mean is that all of the traditions and so forth are scarcely mentioned in public by Jews. You are Jewish or non-Jewish by your new faith of loving Israel or identifying with other who have Suffered.
When anyone says “I am Jewish and…” they are NEVER going to say anything about Jewish Tradition or anything of the sort. They are ALWAYS going to tell you about how they identify with other Suffering Minorities.
They will never SAY that consider all white gentiles to be basically evil, but there is no other way to interpret it. And anti-Semites’ view of Jews is equally simple.
So the older you get, the more “young people” constitute a group which, unlike the complex views of your peers, can be explained in a few words.
Dave keeps pointing out that race determines economics. True. I will discuss that more later. But right-on it is a good point of departure to show another example of the fact that, like futurology and history, economics is an institution, and just as futurology has nothing to do with the future and history has only a nodding acquaintance with what actually happened, economics is not produced to reflect reality.
When I was a professional economist I saw studies that studied correlations between economic growth and everything. You would think that economic growth and investment would be perfectly linked. Like all correlations this one was not perfect either.
Why was this information produced? Why did economists try to find these correlations? Obviously for prescriptive purposes. If investment corresponds to growth, one could begin to say that in order to get growth one only needed to increase investment.
What was not discussed was the single clear correlation: wealth and skin color. I brought this up in the big weekly seminar at the University of Virginia to which all professors and grad students went once a week. Even in 1964 they refused to discuss it, not because it wasn’t obvious, but because it WAS obvious.
Back then, economic GROWTH was everything in economics. Liberals insisted that the “centrally planned economies, the Reds, were growing at astronomic rates. This demonstrated that socialism was the way the third world, the “developing economies,” would catch up with the West.
A quarter of a century later, both the developing economies and the centrally planned economies were at least as far behind as they had been in 1964.
In fact, the only well-known writer who predicted the economics of the coming forty years was George Orwell in his novel 1984, which came out in the late 1940s. In the society he described, everyone was destitute, but every year it was announced that the Plan had been fulfilled, growth was phenomenal, and “spontaneous” demonstrations broke out in the streets.
And every year even the Party members got poorer and poorer, the “proles” got even more abject. That was what happened in the “centrally planned” economies for the forty years after the book was published. On paper Outer Mongolia and Bulgaria double their output every few years..
If you don’t have a market economy your economy can double monthly on paper. Why would that information be produced in such countries? Because if you DIDN’T overfill every Plan on paper, you lost your job.
In the “developing” world, anybody handling paper who didn’t show huge growth could simply disappear. So the necessary information was produced.
You cannot understand economics by looking for The Truth or some kind of Conspiracy or some kind of Bias. People look at economics as reality with a bias. In fact, the “bias” you are talking about is the real reason the field is studied in the first place.
If they had started with that, forty years of complete nonsense data produced by two-thirds of the world would have been seen for what it was and we could have had an “economics” that was useful.
Backbaygrouch points out the many hits he got on Google for BUGS when He put in “anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.” Most rewrites of the Mantra leave this out.
That is because they are based on theory rather than practice. That is term that gets noticed. That is where you get a chuckle from even the most unwilling people. That is where you get a break from the seriousness.
It also shows why I am so careful about the wording. I developed this by USING this, not by THEORIZING about it. You can get the points in faster, but in the real world, can you GET them in? What, IN PRACTICE, do you need to get them in?
The only improvement so far has been Genocide by Assimilation and Shari’s emphasis on
ASIA FOR THE ASIANS! AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS! WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYONE!
If you left out anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews, it turns out, you have far less chance of being Googled. That never occurred to me before BBG tried it, but it is the only unique word in the thing.
There is probably no way to get why I wrote the Mantra as I did if you don’t PRACTICE the Mantra. It looks cumbersome, but believe me I have tried to cut out stuff.
On the good side, I made an error I am glad was dumbass. Gator61 put the Mantra in Yahoo Talks a second time. I went there and found that his second reply was the usual, whites are horrible bit. I Immediately wrote he should follow up with “You are advocating genocide.” Turns out he already had, with quotes from the genocide convention.
It occurs to me now that he might not have aimed that at the commenter I was talking about. My point is that “white people are awful” is the regular knee-jerk reaction. If you THINK about hat, they can only be saying that genocide is all right against whites. What other purpose could that statement possibly have?
Hit them on that! They get a busted-nose introduction to our new way of thinking by way of getting hit for knee-jerk reply.
I assumed that Gator61 had not used this because I have a hell of a time getting anybody to use the Mantra, much less the next step.
I will never know. Yahoo pulled the plug on the whole thing at last.
Go on to the next. Protest Yahoo’s cutting us off, but it also means we are definitely taking prisoners.
If you are working in a dictatorship, you have to expect your phone to hang itself up a lot.
I keep pointing out that futurology has nothing to do with the future and history has little to do with what actually happened in the past. This is VERY important to BUGS because history and the future it leads to are critical to us.
As usual, this all goes back to basic BUGS thinking. Futurology and history are now INSTITUTIONS. They have no more to do with real history or futurology than the Puritans’ offspring have to do with Christ.
I don’t think you can use any information without knowing this basic reality.
The question is NOT “Are they biased?” EVERY piece of information is PRODUCED. It is not produced “except for biases.” It is not produced to be objective, it is produced for grants and for sale. You have to start there.
Think about it: If you had written a perfectly accurate prediction of the future in the 1950′s no one would have published it.
The Soviet Empire would simply collapse because socialist economics is SILLY? No respectable conservative cold get hold of THAT one. Socialism was wrong or oppressive, but just plain SILLY?
Civil rights would lead to a campaign for intermarriage and the complete collapse of America’s borders?
The same is true in technology futurology. You cannot imagine how ridiculous a prediction that the MACH 2.2 Supersonic Transport would just go away would have been half a century ago. All history showed that each generation traveled FASTER. That was a fundamental GIVEN.
And the end of the manned space program? Asimov did think it possible that we would use robots instead of men in many cases, but he didn’t THINK about it. No one would have read anything that said we could send a machine to find things out.
One of the funnier things that tell you about the fifties was Dick Tracey’s two-way wrist radio. I remember debates about whether such a thing would ever be possible. Now it would sell for five bucks.
The point is that it didn’t matter in the least whether futurology was ACCURATE. No one would publish your accurate articles THEN.
No Sovietologist ever missed a meal because not one of them had any idea that the USSR was about to collapse. They got published THEN and they are experts NOW. They get paid to tell us the future of Russia, and they would have been ruined if they had been accurate.
“The USSR is just going to go POOF because it’s SILLY.” You would have ruined saying that in 1980 and nobody in the institution of Futurology would rehabilitate you when it turned out you were right.
We know that, but we never THINK about it.
You might try it sometime. When someone cites research, you might want to ask them WHY that was produced. I don’t mean PC stuff, I mean stuff no one would THINK about. Why did they do research on that instead of something else? I don’t know what you will get back.
Do the Mantra first, but I am just curious about what would happen.
It’s called “the literature.” Someone researches something because someone else researched something. There is nothing wrong with that, but it gives you a view of reality that people simply do not THINK about.
The Plymouth church that traces itself back to 1620 has been Unitarian for a century or two. Most of the Puritans’ children also became Unitarian. Now they are largely atheists.
The history of the Pilgrims and the Puritan is completely different from age to age, so everything I say here has a question mark after it. Whether they came here for religious freedom or to impose their religion, the point is they ended up with a doctrine the original immigrants would not have stood for.
No one notices this, but I do. I think about it a lot.
As I understand it, the 1620 Pilgrims were a different lot from the Puritans who came later in vast numbers. Backbaygrouch will be able to fill us in on this. The Pilgrims’ Massachusetts Bay Colony fought long and hard to keep our of the Puritan’s control, but they lost.
I have READ that the Pilgrims were far more genuinely in favor of religious freedom than the Puritans. The Puritans make a bad joke of that “America was founded by people who came here for religious freedom” stuff. Again I defer to backbaygrouch on the actual facts. Why have an expert around if you aren’t going to use his expertise?
Actually I have nothing against the Puritans for imposing their own religion on a place they went to to have their own population on which to impose their own doctrine. We all wish we could do the same sort of thing for an all-white area. It is the HISTORY, the LESSON that needs correcting.
The Puritans came her to impose their own religion in an area four thousand miles away from England. There are TWO lessons here. Most literate people are aware of the first, that they did NOT come here for Religious Freedom. I want to emphasize the SECOND lesson, which is almost unknown.
The second lesson is that the Puritans FAILED to impose their religion. Why?
Naturally I look at this from a BUGS point of view. One of our points here s that when an institution takes over, the PURPOSE of the institution is lost.
Jesus had no lessons about how a group of theologues should justify their absolute rule. “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” would have gotten someone hanged as a heretic. So they naturally went to the Old Testament to organize their society under theocratic rule.
As time passed, even before they came to America, Puritanism became more and more about how to impose their will on THIS world. The institution talked more and more about its right to rule. The same thing happened to the Catholic Church as it put whole countries under the Interdict to collect money for the Pope.
They were both institutions USING the name of Christ. I wonder how different history might have been if we had lost at Tours and the ruling institutions called themselves Moslem. It may be that we would have had much the same history and the West would have been just as different and independent, but in the name of schism between the Moslem Branch in Northern Europe and the Moslem Branch that was based in the Middle East.
The Catholic Church was every bit as separate from and hostile to Constantinople. The name Christianity certainly did not unite them. Today Iranian Islam has the same attitude to the Sunnites. My point is that no matter what the NAME institutions appeal to, history itself goes its way and institutions are part of history, not of theology.
China’s version of Marxism versus the old Russian version has little to do with Marx. Marx considered cities to be the natural development of a proletarian society rather than peasants. Pol Pot used Marxism to DESTROY his country’s cities. Before long neither version had anything to do with Marx.
The same thing would have happened if they had all called themselves True Snake Worshippers.
Backbaygrouch sardonically said that one thing I was saying was that politicians are only interested in the next election. That is a smartass remark, meant humorously, but it is also Mantra Thinking.
Unlike any other forum that calls itself intellectual, we encourage simplification. Porch Talk does not use big words.
Yes, that is one thing I said. I repeated a simple reality. But Mantra Thinking sees the simple thought and then THINKS about it, rather than just saying it in a complicated way to be impressive.
It took me many years to realize that most of what I say is simply THINKING about what people already know. Nothing is more commonly known than that the Puritans did not come here for religious tolerance. But once they have made that statement, they give it no more thought. I THOUGHT about it, the way the old man on the porch does.
If you think beyond that simple statement, you get some profound results. Yes, the Puritans came here to impose their own religion. But they FAILED. New England became Unitarian. No one ever THINKS about this.
Newton did not DISCOVER gravity, he THOUGHT about gravity.
I did not DISCOVER Genocide by Assimilation, I THOUGHT about it and produced the Mantra.
I have a lot of information, but I am not happy until I fit those facts into a common sense lesson. I make it obvious.
THAT is Mantra Thinking.
BGlass says BUGS is quite a find. She uses it to stimulate her mind, which is the point of a real seminar, something you wont find at universities any more.
And BGlass has paid her tuition with three words:
Annihilation by Assimilation
I would say Genocide by Assimilation, but I wouldnt have thought of it without BGlass.
So now I propose the shortest introduction to us and to the Mantra yet:
AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, ASIA FOR THE ASIANS AND WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!
GENOCIDE BY ASSIMILATION!
Thats the shortest intro to our thinking yet.
The Mantra is hard work. Most people finances way out that satisfies their own emotions rather than introducing a new world view. Thats why we can win and those who just vent lose.
This short article is more important than most of the longer ones.
I have begun to read General Comments.
Gator61 is actually going for it, using the Mantra. He and at least one other of us is USING THE MANTRA on Yahoo Talks at question about the Mantra.
One of the only two rational replies ended with “You must be from BUGS.”
That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you spread your message. It takes a LONG time to be identified when you produce a samizdat, so other people — I assume that last person was one of us — will see this title and wonder about it.
Now or later people will try to Google BUGS. I tried it and naturally BUGS refers to the little creatures. I only found our BUGS when I put in “BUGS Whitaker.” It was at the end of page one of references. Somewhere in the general BUGS title it may be far back, I didn’t look.
I may try BUGS Mantra.
This is big progress. This is what accumulates.
The knee-jerk replies mean nothing, of course. But what is important is that, unlike anybody on our side, Yahoo Talks did not erase the Mantra and put it in the Memory Hole by the time I got to it. No one now has any excuse not to put the Mantra SOMEWHERE.
Don’t stick to sympathetic fora. I believe Virginia Dare would be first to erase it. If I am wrong, tell me and we have another place to hit.
We are not in a unique position here. All through history the greatest breakthroughs have been made by people who spent time developing their points down to the nub and then somehow getting it past an establishment, and the establishments established “opposition,” which is determined to wipe it out.
In fact, that, more than any Great Battles, is what MAKES real history.
I am beginning to believe that someday you will be able to say, “I was with the ORIGINAL BUGS, the Original Mantra Group.”
“The question then arises, why was the Greatest Generation such a bunch of self important jerks? Who trained them? As opposed to who trained both sides of the blood letters of the Civil War [War Of Northern Aggression]? May I suggest it was the FDR’s Jewish appointees with a Jewish agenda? Does anyone have any evidence on the issue? I have nothing more than a gut reaction. Agreed, the Greatest Generation was brainwashed, but who did it, and why? Basics.”
The reason the WWII Generation got to be such self important jerks — BBG is always a master of subtlety — actually came from the fact that in 1945 America regretted its wretched treatment of World War I vets — the Bonus March crowd of 1932. The Bonus Army was very recent headlines by 1945.
But, our usual BASIC question: Why was this information, which could be forgotten as yesterday’s news, produced? Because it was food for the biggest lobby America had ever seen: those who found a gold mine in exploiting those who had been in uniform during the War.
Many of the soldiers in WWI were left in Europe for over a year after that War ended. American soldiers wanted to go HOME. So a movement began in America and Britain:
“No boats, no votes.” That was the first cry of the lobby that would dominate America for over a generation. Soon every discharged soldier got a year’s pension after he was discharged. Vet’s benefits became a giant lobby.
The Jews did not plan this, the leftists did not plan this. But once that force was there, they, unlike our side, made USE of it. So naturally the theory arose that they PLANNED it. Successful politics doesn’t MAKE the opportunities, it EXPLOITS them.
But BBG is right about the invention of the self-righteous part.
It is almost impossible to credit, but when I was coming up and the Korean veterans came home, the WWII crowd was known as, of all things, the Quiet Generation. It was noticed that, while Korean War vets talked endlessly about their war adventures, WWII vets didn’t want to talk about it.
When I reached my teens, the WWII vets were doing what earlier generations had done, getting back to real life.
As you know, in 1948 the Red Cross reported on Nazi killings and they were not Six Million. Nazi killings in wartime were vastly inferior to Stalin’s in peacetime. If they had been as vast as it is now illegal to dispute, the Red Cross would have talked about it and Churchill would have mentioned it.
So why was this information that Hitler killed as many Jews as the left wanted him to have, PRODUCED?
You know the answer to THAT. Everything encouraged the production of this information and there was no lobby against it. As the years passed, the left wanted to end the Cold War. Anything that showed that World War II was against Evil, while the Reds were entirely different, was eagerly published.
Yes, Virginia, there was Jewish Lobby. But its basis was disappointingly prosaic. I have no idea how many hundreds of billions Jews got of our reparations from Germany, but it was titanic. Two overwhelming lobbies, WWII vets and the Jewish Lobby, became indistinguishable. It would-be astonishing if the left did not USE this.
It wasn’t until the 1960′s that the Good War against Hitler was invented. In the 1960′s people were shot down daily trying to escape Communist countries, so that was not reported on. This was no plot, it was as natural as gravity. All the news became Eichmann and the Good War. By the time opposition to Vietnam became media policy, this natural development turned into a tidal wave.
In this tidal wave the Quiet Generation turned into self-righteous jerks. All of the media made Vietnam Vets ashamed of fighting the People’s Republics. Suddenly the millions of WWII “vets,” of whom about a third had ever heard a hostile shot fired, became John Waynes. Again if you have the slightest understanding of the human animal, this was as natural as gravity.
Veterans of the Good War were lionized. Veterans against Communism were portrayed as psychotic nut jobs.
For millions of WWII vets the Good War was the last noteworthy thing they had ever done. They began to talk about nothing else. They became self-righteous permanent adolescents, self-righteous jerks. Once they had this tool in their hands the left used it ruthlessly.
The left was simply not as stupid as the right was. As the leftist media found a need for some kind of opposition, they naturally gave those slots to the people who threatened them least and agreed with them on vital matters like the Holocaust.
This is not as exciting as a Jewish Conspiracy. But it IS the way history really works.
When I talk about the Obedient Generation that calls itself The Greatest Generation, people always ask me about later ones. As I have patiently and repeatedly explain, the later generations were the natural byproduct of the first one, the Obedients.
When you have a fifth of an entire generation taken in youth and beaten into mindless submission in Basic Training, and an entire generation forced to believe that anything the Government does is Glorious and Right … and all the rest of it, the crowd these people raises is going to be warped.
It is too bad for the anti-alcohol forces that Prohibition came a generation too early. The Obedient Generation would have accepted it. The Greatest Generation would certainly have obeyed Prohibition, as it obeyed everything else imposed on it.
We will never get rid of that Generation’s War on Drugs. Failure just means jam it harder. Anything that generation called a War was lost, like the War on Poverty and the War on Terror. No modern American is able to question walking around an airport with his pants at his knees and barefooted — if he’s lucky and not stripped — but I can’t see the Americans who threw out Prohibition putting up with it.
The Stockholm Syndrome is not new. It was what WWII Basic Training was all about: The Sarge reduces you to kissing his ass, probably sometimes literally, by screaming in your face and you drool over any little mercy he shows.
No, that does not “make men.” It makes slaves. It is a process aimed at producing slobbering moral cowards. Today’s military, I hate to admit, could take out the Greatest Generation, a battalion to a regiment, in short order.
I have known people on about every side in WWII. I have never heard ANYBODY praise American soldiers except Americans. If it were not for the Italians, who didn’t even know which side they were on much of the time, Americans would have been the bad jokes of the War.
As a practical Matter, I noticed early that the person who uses the word “liar” all the time is invariably a person who is very loose about the truth. Let me repeat and emphasize that this is not theory, it is PRACTICAL matter if you are in professional-level politics. I can see in my mind people who would come in to see congressional staff and start saying liars, liars, liars.
I can remember how we ALL reacted to them, while acting like we took them seriously. A lie is an INTENTIONAL untruth. Most of the people on the other side are screwed, but not lying. And calling a liar a liar is not going to phase a real liar.
As I have pointed out, a person who keeps denouncing Hate is always pretty good hater himself. He cannot see the other as different from him, and for him, hatred of what he calls Hater is a perfectly good motivation that needs no explanation.
A person who keeps talking about Mercy, Mercy, Mercy is kind to the Inquisitors.
Some time ago I talked about what interrogation is all about. The largest part of it is LISTENING. What a person says about those he hates tells you all about him. People who do not know this wonder why interrogators would like to get to terrorists early unless they are going to torture him.
Actually, if you know how to handle it, you can get answers from someone who is against you almost as well as you can someone on your side at a debriefing. If you know things like the Liar rule and so forth, a person who is not ready for such questioning will dance around information in a very predictable way. He won’t think he has given you any, but if you know what you’re doing he might as well have a neon sign on his forehead.
Which brings us to the only group in history that could call itself the Greatest Generation with a straight face.
The Founding Fathers would never have even considered such a label. Neither side in the Civil War, even the most self-righteous, would have been able to keep a straight face calling itself the Greatest Generation Ever.
A piece of wisdom which predates me says it:
“Methinks he doth protest too much.”
When the Greatest Generation was born, the white race straddled the world like a giant. They left apologizing for their very existence. No wonder they have to shout so loud.
When Hungary threw off Soviet rule, the State paper in my home town had to use a photo different from the one used in every other paper in America. The State was fighting to get the Confederate flag off of the flagstaff over he State House, and every other news paper had, under the Hungary headline, a photo with a huge Confederate flag right in front of the speakers’ platform.
A major factor in putting that flag there was Hungary’s huge Gypsy population. The Communist Government had suppressed all Politically Incorrect statistics, and one it had just published was that the one quarter of Hungary that was Gypsy committed well over one third of the total crimes.
“Heritage not Hate,” HELL! The Confederacy had no Tradition in Hungary. That flag represented what the anti-white Confederate flag supporters called Hate. It was a screaming denunciation of the anti-white, anti-Hate mongers around the world!
That flag was a denunciation of the lies and suppression of the leftist regime that had just fallen. It was answered by the State newspaper’s suppression.
If it is not pro-white, the Confederate flag is nothing. Respectable conservatism is facing a grassroots revolt in the Tea Party Movement, but it will be abortive because it, too, does not dare face what is actually happening to America.
By concentrating on the Tea Party, the media will once again avoid the reality the American grassroots is struggling with. The Tea Party will be obsessed with all the things respectable conservatives shout about.
The only important thing about the Tea Party is that it reflects an understanding that our anti-white political right has a symbiotic relationship with our political left. That realization has taken my entire lifetime, and it is a major step forward.
But until it includes a pure, unadulterated HERESY it will not mean anything positive.
History has nothing to do with what actually happened in the past. Historian are people who get their reputation by being published and quoted TODAY.
When today was 1938 John Maynard Keynes wrote his General Theory and became the number one economist on earth and progressive historians hailed his work as detailing the true historical causes of business cycles.
Keynes’s explanation was enormously complicated and it was based on a flat-out lie. A fellow doctoral candidate of mine did his dissertation on what Keynes called “classical economists” he said completely misdiagnosed the whole thing. Keynes said, over and over and over, that these “classical economists” advised a balanced budget while the country needed a stimulus.
It turns out that not one of these “classical economists” actually existed in the real world of the 1930s. Every professional economist, every single on, demanded deficit spending AT THAT TIME. In fact, Adolf Hitler had ALREADY used the stimulus by building the Autobahn and other huge public projects and the German Depression, worse than ours, was OVER by 1938.
But no one in 1938 wanted to hear these two facts. They wanted a complicated explanation for what was to them the overwhelming disaster of the age.
When the 1950s was NOW the debate was for or against Big Government. Conservatives took KEYNES’ explanation of what he called “classical” economics as their own doctrine! So conservatives were “anti-Keynesian and liberals were pro-Keynesian. But conservatives were talking about balancing the budget as an eternal principle, the way Keynes said they should.
New Deal history had nothing to do with what actually happened. Readers wanted to read about Big Government versus Small Government.
When NOW was 1970, President Nixon said “We are all Keynesians now,” by which he meant that nobody advocated balancing the budget in the face of depression. He had no idea that everybody intelligent was a Keynesian — in his sense — in the 1930s .
Except the Democrats who nominated Roosevelt. Their 1932 platform denounced the huge national debt Hoover was piling up in an attempt at recovery.
When NOW was 1985 the debate was over REAGAN’S deficits. He cut taxes to stimulate the economy and the Democrats were once again raising hell about his huge deficits.
When NOW was 2000 pretty well all liberals agreed that Reagan’s tax cuts had worked, and their only argument against them was that they were too MUCH. But by 2000 everybody agreed that tax cuts were a true method of reducing recession. Democrats simply preferred keeping taxes as they were and using SPENDING to do the stimulating.
In other words, by the time NOW was 2000, everybody had gone back to REAL economists’ thinking in the 1930s. But before that it was not accepted politically that raising taxes was a way of keeping a depression going.
When NOW is 2010, all the obvious facts about the New Deal are easy to state.
The New Deal consisted of two parts. One part was stimulus, which was deficit spending and major stimulus programs. The other part was a backbreaking regulatory and tax burden on the private sector, including income taxes up to the 91% bracket and putative action against business in general, out of the Marxist textbook, which was aimed at leftist ideology and punishing the villains of the day, businessmen. Which I like to all the Dillinger Phenomenon. John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde and the rest were heroes because they robbed banks, the villains of the day.
But it was the Dillinger Phenomenon used by the far left which kept the Depression going. But one can only say this simple fact today. When NOW is 2010 and everybody now recognized that raising taxes depresses the economy.
And it is now accepted that shrinking the money supply, which was done in the 1930s to the extent of cutting it by a third, is a sure way to cause a depression. That was done by the banking industry and the Federal Reserve.
That was not a Conspiracy. It was same blind, drooling stupidity by Experts that caused the collapse of 2008. He who does not learn from history repeats it.
Those who think history is the real past will pay for it.
History has nothing to do with the past. History is information that is produce and sold like any other information. If you want to know what is true, you have to analyze “history” like any other information that is produced.
People HATE that idea, because distorted history can have so many more exciting causes. You can produce and sell a World Conspiracy tome using just a few of the endless truly egregious distortions in any history text. Why waste all that on a simple explanation?
People HATE simple explanations. My discussions of the obvious reasons that history has nothing to do with the past does not involve Big Names and Secret Deals. It has none of the pizazz and popularity of an issue of People Magazine.
Which is why People Magazine is PRODUCED.
In the case of the Titanic, for example, all discussion for a century focused on the design and the designer. He deserted the ship and was a Big Man. Big and interesting people designed and built the thing, and it is THEM that people want to read about.
It turns out that the biggest reason Titanic went down was that some of the pieces put in at the shipyard were shoddy, iron instead of steel, and Best grade instead of Best-Best. Try to make a really thrilling exposure of THAT!
The Titanic was an accident waiting to happen. It went down THEN because the officer in charge swung the ship, so that its hull plates were unzipped when it hit an iceberg. If they had hit the iceberg head on, the Titanic was built for that and would have survived.
These are INTERESTING causes. You can groan about the lack of a simple pair of binoculars; the lookouts had none. You can thrill at that moment what the man at the helm made a split-second decisions. During World War II the Germans even made a movie showing it was all the fault of the Britons because they didn’t listen to the one German officer aboard.
But a RIVET? Hull plates attached by the wrong sort of material, bad iron instead of good steel?
Put in by a bunch of common laborers or subcontractors no one in Hollywood could possibly relate to?
Try to make THAT thrilling, and lots of luck!
Like all respectable conservatives FOX is trying to get every Haitian under the age of forty adopted into American families. And they are GLORYING in it.
“We the People of the United States and OUR Posterity.” That is the ONLY state authority and the ONLY stated PURPOSE Americans have ever adopted. This is the rock on which any possible alliance with the respectable right breaks up.
This is what the respectable right GLORIES in. Nothing makes a respectable conservative so sickeningly righteous as when they out-liberal the liberals. They are so smug, they are so PROUD.
This is the poison in the so-called Pro-Life Movement. They are never so ecstatic as when they can crow about how they value the beating heart of the fifteenth baby in a family in Ethiopia as t hey do for the any American white American child. Mindlessness is always costly.
As Larry Niven says, “Stupidity has always been a capital offense.”
Nothing is more fatal to scientific advance than MILITANT ignorance. Nothing is more deadly to human beings than mindless “Idealism.”
Genocide is fine with conservatives as long as it is done by “assimilation.” In fact, they are droolingly proud of that. When I developed the Mantra it was my last break with conservatism. Conservatives’ main argument against Hispanics and Moslems is that refuse to date and marry the conservatives’ offspring.
The Mantra makes it clear that there is no compromise with this “assimilation” method of genocide. And nothing else on the political horizon makes this clear.
Pierce’s comment that he had no one living to take his place has haunted me. After his death, his great words and movement lost the coherence he had given it. One reason for this may have been that Pierce was TOO brilliant. He would have been dissatisfied with anyone because no one had the breadth of knowledge he had.
I am, as Brian so well put it, an old man with experience to relate, knowledge to share, a Porch Talker. All of us raised with the Porch Talkers were given what young people SHOULD be given, a non-nonsense world view, a Way of Thinking. Grandpa never told us he was a hero like the Greatest Generation or what we had to believe to be Real Men. Grandpa never claimed to be as brilliant as Dr. Pierce REALLY WAS.
Old Grandpa used to say…” never end with a point of absolute Doctrine. And he did not give us that overworked capitalized term, Wisdom. He gave us the real thing, the small-lettered wisdom.
Porch wisdom was not aimed at What You Youngsters Should Be. It was not What You Youngsters Should Believe. It was little bits of practical mental experience that can be used by a priest or an atheist, a doctor or lawyer or Indian Chief. In fact it was the kind of real wisdom that put the Indian chiefs out of business while they spouted Ancient Wisdom.
For that we were supposed to go to the Preacher on Sunday. The Preacher was boring and he got us there by force. We listened to porch talk with pleasure. I remember when I had an exam coming and I had to study my books while I could hear the talk going on when an old guy was visiting. It was torture! I wanted to be out there so BAD!
As Brian notes, porch wisdom consist of “This is how I did it right and this is how I did it wrong.” No self-righteous Mommy Professor demanding you adhere to The Line.
In fact, I can tell WHICH old man’s porch talk my family is quoting without their giving the name. He had a consistency there, as clear as the Preacher or Mommy Professor, but it was not how to Avoid Damnation or Mommy Professor’s constant theme of How Great the World Would Be IF Me and My Fellow Idealists and Intellectuals ruled the World.
You certainly can’t identify a particular preacher or Mommy Professor by quoting him. Mommy Professors all say the same thing and the Preacher always says something that clearly came from a Pulpit, and not just on religious matters.
But Porch Talk IS consistent. The old man has a worldview, or, less grandiosely, he has a tested idea of WHAT WORKS. His stories range around a whole lifetime, but if you listen, the VIEW is consistent, which is why we can tell WHICH old man said it.
And each of them left a LEGACY, not a set of carbon copies.
When Brian started the new General Comments it was a terrible shock to me. I have not been looking in that section for months! It had petered out, so I didn’t look at it.
I felt I had let you down horribly. But now that I HAVE looked at them, I am much happier about the whole thing. General Comments are excellent and, what came as a relief to me, you didn’t NEED me there!
“Our discussion is going very well, Bob, thank you very much.”
This last is a critically important point. That, in fact, is what gives BUGS a future. I don’t think any Leader in politics, left, right, or pro-white, would be relieved to find that things are going right along without him.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the key to our success.
After my guilt rush, I am enjoying reading the General Comments.
Skype-writing Brian a few days ago I happened in on a conversation on which Lord Nelson was having with him, which was supposed to include me after I had gone away abruptly as Brian allows me to do. It was GREAT!
Brian and Lord Nelson were discussing your ongoing activities, from White Rabbit to, one by one, most of our regular commenters and other BUGSers besides. You are not only going out and DOING it, you are going out and DOING it in a MENTALLY DISCIPLINED way.
Every reminder I would have put in was emphasized between Brian and Lord Nelson, with some additions that were dead on the money and I would be proud to have made myself. I was glad I missed the discussion because I was afraid I might screw it up.
Even better, the discussion was about how YOU keep forcing each other back on track.
I have a legacy!
