The Left’s Now-Complete Lobotomy
“Science is aristocratic: the Republic has no need of savants.”-Maximilien Robespierre
Joseph Sobran defined alienism as “a prejudice in favor of the alien, the marginal, the dispossessed, the eccentric, reaching an extreme in the attempt to ‘build a new society’ by destroying the basic institutions of the native. The most terrible fulfillment of this principle is Communism.” The hand of global “progressivism” weighs heavily on the Western world, the impress of its sweaty palm crushing each and all into the mud below, a squalid, impoverished uniformity in this mass grave. This is the dawn of the new world of Lothrop Stoddard’s Under-Man:
Every progressive principle which mankind has thus evolved: the solidarity of civilization and culture; community of interest; the harmonious synthesis of muscle, intellect, and spirit—all these the new heresy of the Under-Man howls down and tramples in the mud. Up from the dark purlieus of the underworld strange battle-shouts come winging. The underworld is to become the world, the only world. As for our world, it is to be destroyed; as for us, we are to be killed. A clean sweep! Not even the most beautiful products of our intellects and souls interest these Under-Men. Why should they care when they are fashioning a world of their own?
Death is not enough, though, for not even death can equalize; monuments and legacies live on, they stand as a testament to who we were, who we are, and who we can be, which is why it must all be swept away—everything we have accomplished, everything we have built, everything we once held dear, erased. Western civilization and the people that built it must cease to be. The existential threats are legion. Sam Francis enumerates:
The ideological poison has assumed several different names: Marxism, liberalism, globalism, egalitarianism, and indeed much of…conservatism…Behind all of these ideologies and slogans lies the pervasive venom of universalism, the vision of mankind with a capital M…In the universalist world-view, there is neither history nor race nor even species, neither specific cultures nor particular peoples nor meaningful boundaries. Therefore there are no concrete duties to race, nation, community, family, friend, or neighbor and indeed no distinctions to be drawn between neighbor and stranger, friend and foe, mine and thine, us and them.
Humanity, flora and fauna, only so much bio-mass. There is no real diversity here, for nothing can grow in this hellish moonscape of egalitarianism. That does not stop the malignant forces of revolution, however. The first collapse of communism necessarily begets another attempt and then another, a lack of “purity” always faulted for the system’s failure, not human nature and the inequalities of existence. Bertrand Russell condemned communism’s “universal struggle” by presciently predicting that the damage and destruction wrought by World War I would be a cakewalk compared to what was to be unleashed by the attempted implementation of impossible equality under the communist system:
The devastation and impoverishment, the lowering of the level of civilization throughout vast areas, the general increase of hatred and savagery, the letting loose of bestial instincts…An economic system cannot be considered apart from the population which is to carry it out; and the population…would be savage, bloodthirsty and ruthless to an extent that must make any system a mere engine of oppression and cruelty.
In his The Revolt Against Civilization Stoddard wrote of the hideous manifestations of Marxism that resulted from the “mission creep” as its guise of “equality” inevitably failed:
To this supreme end everything else must be subordinated. But this means that education, learning, science, art, and every other field of intellectual activity is perverted into propaganda; that all doubtful or hostile ideas must be excluded; that no critical or independent thinking can be tolerated. And history has conclusively demonstrated that where thought is not free there is no true intellectual life, but only intellectual mummies or abortions.
In place of a dynamic civilization, a shambolic, superstitious, and stunted hell. It is “Harrison Bergeron” realized—the strong brought low, the beautiful disfigured, the intelligent effectively lobotomized. Bolshevism is the secular theology of the Under-Man, whipped to a frenzy to undo the civilization that has left him behind. When you are losing the game, you have four options: 1) continue playing by the rules and losing, 2) give up, 3) find a new game, or 4) try to change the rules of the existing game. As biological inequalities inevitably manifest themselves through Western equality of opportunity, with environmental factors largely controlled for, the egalitarian myth becomes that much harder to sustain. The constant agitating for “diversity” and the attendant lowering of standards from the workplace to the academy should tell you all you need to know about why the game is changing. Ethnic studies, affirmative action, racial hiring quotas, HR commissars—it’s all there. To quote Jared Taylor from White Identity:
Nations are at their most sensitive and irrational where they are weakest. It is precisely because it is so easy to point out the weaknesses of diversity that any attempt to do so must be countered, not by specifying diversity’s strengths—which no one can do—but with accusations of racism.
“Racism” is the canard of Social Justice, that what is really the product of biological predispositions and/or the product of poor life choices is somehow attributable to systemic and largely-invisible processes that disadvantage “people of color,” women, and whoever else believes they might have a credible claim to victim status. The ideology of egalitarianism provides the disaffected, the maladjusted, and the degenerate a world-view that justifies their short-comings. It is much easier than admitting that reality is tragic. Quoting Lothrop Stoddard:
We are now coming to realize that, besides progress, there is “regress”; that going forward is no more “natural” than going backward; lastly, that both movements are secondary phenomena, depending primarily upon the character of human stocks. Now when we realize the inevitable discontent of individuals or groups placed at cultural levels above their inborn capacities and their instinctive desire to revert from these uncongenial surroundings to others lower but more congenial, we can begin to appreciate the power of the atavistic forces forever seeking to disrupt advanced societies and drag them down to more primitive levels.
This primitivism isn’t just confined to the natural disparities related to race, either, though that is a major component of Western decline. Ben Shapiro causes riots at UC Berkeley, for God’s sake. Gregory Zilboorg cautioned against the kind of perma-ferment Bolshevism we see in action today in The Passing of the Old Order in Europe:
Such government necessitates the employment of continuous violent methods and maintaining continuously, in the minds of the masses, a consciousness of danger and the necessity for destruction (my note: which through importing unassimilable immigrants en masse is a great way to sharpen “inequities”)…Under such a condition the masses are permanent mobs, able only to hate, to fight, and to destroy.
To quote Lothrop Stoddard:
Revolutionists are coming to realize that science, with its stern love of truth, is their most dangerous enemy, and that the discoveries of biology are relentlessly exposing their cleverest sophistries. Accordingly, the champions of the Under-Man…cling desperately to the exploded doctrines of environmentalism and “natural equality.”
*Noticing* that diversity is anti-white and that the whole of “neo-libealism” is aligned against you and your civilization is cause for a beat-down in the court of public opinion, the drumming out of your presence in polite society, and a probable termination of your livelihood. You must adhere one hundred percent to what Sam Francis dubbed “the happyland of universalism.” Quoting Francis:
In the happyland of universalism, we owe as much to the children of Somalia — indeed, more — than we do to the hapless citizens of Los Angeles. Marines who could not have been sent from Camp Pendleton to Los Angeles during the riots of 1992 and who are not ordered to prevent violation of the Mexican border adjacent to their own installation in southern California are speedily dispatched to Somalia. Even to invoke “our” identity, our interests, our aspirations is to invite accusations of all the “isms” and “phobias” that are deployed to prevent further discussions and to paralyze the formation or the retention of a common consciousness that might at some point swell up into actual resistance to our dispossession. The principal white response to the incipient race war thus far, manifested in neo-conservative critiques of “Political Correctness” and multiculturalism, is merely to regurgitate the formulas of universalism.
That formula includes the #blackprivilege of not being called out for destroying social capital in places like Baltimore, Detroit, Memphis, Birmingham, and Camden but instead blaming “Democrat mayors”; it includes the iron-clad rule that as a white, you may NOT notice nor shall you pass comment on the fact that an entire political party’s raison d’etre is to see you dispossessed and destroyed. The Democrats have positioned themselves as the explicitly anti-white party, and for most non-whites in the country, it does not matter that their economic policies are exacerbating biological disparities because they are sticking it to Whitey.
Whites’ generosity is often mis-interpreted, and it is certainly used against us. As Oswald Spengler wrote in The Hour of Decision:
The hare may perhaps deceive the fox, but human beings can not deceive each other. The coloured man sees through the white man when he talks about “humanity” and ever-lasting peace. He scents the other’s unfitness and lack of will to defend himself…The coloured races are not pacifists. They do not cling to a life whose length is its sole value. They take up the sword when we lay it down. Once they feared the white man; now they despise him.
When addressing whites only, as all other groups are encouraged to be embrace their identity, a common Leftist refrain is, “How can one be proud of totally random DNA—something you can’t control?” Well the inheritor does not control it, though they can maximize or squander the genes bequeathed to them, and there is nothing random about partner selection and the propagation of good genes generation after generation. Only in the perverted shadow of the Holocaust does the positive aspect of eugenics look so horrifying. This is in part why we celebrate the weak, the defective, the sub- and abnormal in popular culture—it is Joe Sobran’s alienism, a celebration if not veneration of the Other as well as a criminalization of simply noticing patterns. Finally, on top of that and of absolutely paramount importance to the maintenance of the modern Leftist worldview and globalist tyranny, whites must never recognize that they have legitimate racial interests the same as every other group. They are to wallow in guilt and actively facilitate their own dispossession; working to preserve one’s nation, people, and civilization for themselves and for their posterity would mean the death of illiberal “liberalism.” For Sam Francis:
The formation of a white racial consciousness does not mean that whites should think of themselves only as whites, to the exclusion of ethnic, national, religious, regional, class, or other identities, or that individuality should yield to the collective category of race...Nor does the formation of white racial consciousness mean that we should conceive of ourselves only as biological beings to the exclusion of religious or metaphysical identities. Racial consciousness means that we add recognition of biological and racial factors to our traditional concepts of human nature.
Without such an acknowledgement, whites and their civilization are doomed to the graveyard of history.
