Summarizing Descent

Marxism, despite its best efforts, is a mega-structure of ‘social constructs’, it is the tenets of Communism implanted onto culture and human interaction and is the source of the modern ‘social justice’ movement prevalent among youths and in universities.

Liberal society strives for equality in all social and political areas, but fails itself in the economic department, though democratic governments practice welfare systems and equality in regards to work and education opportunities, it continually fails to practice true equality within economics. So although liberal society practices ‘Cultural Marxism’, it fails to put into practice the natural (historical) conclusion to the question of economic ‘equality’, which is Communism. Communism is an economic system rather than a political system – modern liberals seem to believe that economics will solve all problems within society, the redistribution of wealth, the levelling of material possession and the stripping of old concepts of (racial and social) superiority will cease conflict and ensure the abstract idea of equal human rights. It is true that communism does in fact strip the individual of his identity; it removes the natural element of competition and makes each man indistinguishable from the next, ultimately unveiling a sort of democratic totalitarianism – and if the isolated man has no rights (Rougier) until relationships are created, then the people under communism, as interchangeable outlines of men certainly have no ‘rights’. 

Marxism, despite its best efforts, is a mega-structure of ‘social constructs’, it is the tenets of Communism implanted onto culture and human interaction and is the source of the modern ‘social justice’ movement prevalent among youths and in universities. The focal points are that gender and race are constructs built to discriminatorily divide people and every person ‘deserves’ universal human rights (which contrarily is not a social construct). This process of unblinking despotism succeeds through firstly encouraging one to willingly throw off one’s oh so oppressive, presumptuous characteristics and either acquires new vetted titles or else entirely denies nationality, race, gender etc. Unfortunately these advocators are misty eyed over ‘equality’ and cannot see the ‘double-think’ for the teetering manipulation of words – “we are all the same, but different”.

So how do you convince a young person to throw off their identity? You baffle them with biased history lessons and sentimental ideas. You lead them to believe that their natural attributes are a representation of historical persecution (i.e. all white males were slave traders), so upon this illogical guilt they attempt to align themselves with the ‘persecuted’ by putting themselves in an ‘oppressed minority’ or as we’ve suggested, denying themselves, this then rids them of their guilt. ‘Oppressed minorities’ i.e. women, then convince themselves that they need to rid themselves of the memories of their collective oppression, i.e. femininity, which is a relic of the past –equally, men who’ve adopted this neurosis, rid themselves of masculinity which again is a reminder of patriarchy and the pattern continues. Their behaviour is self-destructive, akin to caged animals, performing obscenities in affront to their ‘persecutors’.

Alienating the individual is not nearly enough, however. The ‘diversity through homogeny’ stint must permeate all institutions, in every group imaginable – political, social, cultural is the apparent need for a universal attitude within (the group) regardless of its aim. It must allow representatives from every category; every gender, race, age and religion must be heard and represented. Exclusivity, pride and success are sins which create resentment, instead of dealing with conflict the natural way – division (tribal and national) or competition, we insist that that is wrong but what is more humane is making the two agitators more alike, and then surely they will cease fighting?

It’s widely believed that Judaism and its sequel Christianity are the progenitors of egalitarian thought and ‘human rights’ since ‘all men are equal under God’. The modern distaste for competition and pride, and the seemingly impossible task of accepting a plurality of truths, or rather ideas as well as the thinning integrity of borders (globalisation) is evidence enough that liberal ideas stem from the universalism of these Asiatic religions. To reverse to a time when these thought structures were not neatly entrenched, we’d end up at our pre-Christian ancestors who worshipped a pantheon of gods and spirits and competition and pride was at the centre of culture. Victory was its own justification and life was sacred for its ephemeral nature and not clung to, to the detriment of growth.

So this simplified explanation of Cultural Marxism aims to enlighten the individual, who finds the communistic ideas appealing on a superficial level, because ‘equality’ is an obvious truth in a society that revolves around money. When money and equality are synonymous, we have the growth of global trade and larger bodies of power to oversee it. We have Westerners involving themselves with ‘less’ civilised parts of the world to spread the truth (spot the Christianity again!). What is the result? Large corporations who own a complete trade where the cogs are paid little and the product is equally cheap, this causes the deterioration of local industry and ambition. This makes it increasingly difficult for people to own their own businesses, houses etc. This is where Cultural Marxism and Economic Marxism cease mirroring each other and actually meet to form all-inclusive Communism. There is no middle ground on the path we are on, because in the society that values ‘progress’ over sustenance (and tradition), there will reach a pinnacle of extremism.

Communism does not see the individual, you are interchangeable, replaceable and therefore your national identity matters little, your national identity encourages exclusivity which is detrimental to the growth of global economy. Your countrymen could be easily replaced or mixed with that of another, and the cogs would continue. There is no place for ‘aiming higher’, the schooling system and therefore public expectations are lowered to accommodate the lowest common denominator, the message is uniformity masquerading as tolerance and equality.

Your best form of defence is quite simply to value your national identity, your local community and its smaller businesses. Cultural Marxism is the process of willing Communism – so revolt against it by embracing tradition and your natural identity, changing your priorities from the materialism that sedates you to your innate spirituality. Enhance your self-esteem, not by demanding others opinions accommodate yours, but by arming yourself with intellectual and physical strength. What is popular is rarely there to inspire success, cultural Marxism is not a system of elevation but of degradation, encouraging the belief that self-destruction and lewd behaviour is ‘empowering’, in open revolt against healthy tradition.

Support true identity, not the merging and watering down of it.

Burn Down the Colleges

The purpose of a college education, Joe Sobran opined, is to give you the correct view of minorities, and the means to live as far away from them as possible.  Today, of course, you don’t get the means to move anywhere – you just get the debt that forces you to move back in with your parents.

Prior generations of students were at least expected to retain a kind of intellectual elitist liberalism – think of Robert F. Kennedy reciting Greek poetry to a black audience when Martin Luther King was assassinated.  Today’s students can’t read The Great Gatsby without a “trigger warning.”  While White, blue collar America fights the Empire’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the nation’s future leaders are thrown into hysterics at the thought of cracking open Huckleberry Finn.  The educational experience in the liberal arts at many universities is essentially absent.

This is a feature, not a bug.  The rise of the Managerial Class and the mass access to higher education created by government funding changed the purpose of the university.  Instead of a place of learning for the traditional aristocracy, higher education is a certification process for white collar jobs.  Just as union membership was once required for certain blue collar jobs, a university degree granted permission to work in an office.  And as the Managerial Class consolidates its grip and hardens its ideology, a university is also an indicator that the individual has received the approved ideological training and can be trusted to participate in the anti-White regime. 

This is now becoming increasing formalized.  At Harvard University, students at the Kennedy School of Government, including minorities who gained admission though affirmative action, are advocating mandatory training in “privilege” for all students.  There are conflicting reports on whether the school has acquiesced to the demand.  At Princeton, a Jewish student’s mild critique of “white privilege” (and defense of Jewish privilege) has led to the usual girlish shrieking by the social justice warriors.  There is no theoretical limit to the amount of ideological training (or manipulative government policies) enabled by “privilege theory”, and universities will simply be a factory for churning out commissars and ideologically approved worker bees. 

The problem of course is that the Parasitic Class has a natural limit in economic terms.  Fewer and fewer of these college graduates can actually produce anything.  Again, Sobran – “In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to teaching Remedial English in college.”

What’s worse, the one thing these graduates do know how to do is complain about their oppression, file lawsuits, and generally cripple the country unfortunate enough to have to deal with them.  The mentally handicapped student “Noah” who is “going to college” will contribute more than the typical illegal immigrant “DREAMER” who will be allowed to stay in the country because he can pull a C average in “Chicano/a Studies.”  At least Noah won’t file a discrimination lawsuit if he gets a job as a Wal-Mart greeter.  Far from being an advantage, the “best” liberal arts programs in the country are actually a crippling weakness for the United States, because all they do is turn out people who will be employed in making the country worse. 

To use just one example, take the “can’t make it up” example from Towson University, where particularly vibrant specimens of multiculturalism were awarded a national championship in debate precisely because they refused to obey the rules and instead ululated about racism.  Even more hilarious are the White reporters who coo over this development as if it is a great triumph.  If only one of their opponents had simply read a paragraph or two from Rushton, Murray, or Wade and then dropped the mic and walked away, the nation (which is to say, the European-Americans who keep this country limping along) would have cheered. 

But this will not happen.  Reform will not come from the universities themselves or certainly from students.  While conservative groups occasionally talk about “taking back the universities,” the Beltway Right flails about trying to get college students to “celebrate Ronald Reagan’s birthday.” The smarter groups simply run race-baiting websites that draw hits and donations, while funding harmless and pointless activities about tax cuts or the federal debt.  And as for the campus libertarians, they will make it a point to condemn “fusionism” and refuse to ally with right wingers on the “wrong side of history” – to the utter indifference of the “conservative” gatekeepers who wail and gnash their teeth about the presence of a Peter Brimelow at CPAC.  

Nor will conservative donors save the day by pulling funds from the schools.  Progressives never went broke underestimating the stupidity, short-sightedness, and reactionary delusions of paleo-Americans.  While leftist donors fund a relentless legal and activist assault on White America, “right-wing” millionaires either fund football teams, open borders activism, or sophomoric study programs on the thought of Ayn Rand. 

Yet in spite all of this, the Education Bubble will eventually pop.  College has only one practical use, other than just networking.  It’s not what you learn at an Ivy League school that means anything – it is gaining admission and showing that you were smart enough to graduate.  Higher education is simply an extremely expensive and inefficient IQ test.  And as colleges are forced to put classes online and alternative education systems like Khan Academy grow in popularity, savvy donors may begin to wonder why they should blow millions of dollars in donations so “Professor” Cornel West can record a rap album and ham it up in crappy Matrix sequels, or so illiterate charlatans can enjoy a new “Ethnic Studies” department.  They might start looking for alternatives.

Many of the leading figures of the tech revolution – Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerburg, Steve Wozniak, Michael Dell, and others are college dropouts.  Peter Thiel offers a program that actually pays students to leave college in order to start their own businesses.  What the emerging economy values is less “the college experience” than raw intellectual power.  As Bill Gates says, Microsoft’s biggest competitor is not another tech company, but Goldman Sachs, because they are both competing for the best human capital (at least in terms of intelligence). 

An alternative method of education already exists online.  What is needed is a new method of credentialing employees – be it through a universal IQ test, the creation of “technical schools” for white collar jobs, or even using college admissions themselves as proof of qualification, rather than an actual diploma in diversity studies one receives after four years and six figures. 

The Left sees this as a threat, hence the increasing volume of effeminate whining about Silicon Valley’s “disturbing bro-culture” or even subversive (Dark Enlightenment) ideas.  This is also why the media is increasing efforts to put more members of the Parasitic Class into the offices and boardrooms of companies such as Twitter and Facebook.  In San Francisco, this has already led to a kind of intra-Left civil war, as the eco-friendly and SWPL tech employees find themselves targeted by white anarchists and Hispanic immigrants demanding handouts. 

Unfortunately for them, the tech industry is not like the media or academia.  In a global marketplace that prioritizes intelligence and efficiency, even a titan like Google can only tolerate so many pet “debate champions” (a new euphemism for the Sons of Obama) before its top talent flees to another competitor, even overseas.  Unlike universities or propaganda mills, the tech industry needs people who offer something to the company besides high estrogen, high melanin, and low IQ, or some combination thereof.  The tech industry (as shown by its championing of amnesty) doesn’t care about the country – but its very sociopathy enables it to ignore the faux egalitarianism of the subsidized servants of academia.

American higher education is an active liability for the country.  It won’t be long before the degrees they award will be liabilities as well.  A college degree will symbolize that the gradate is either a coward at best or a litigious, whining incompetent at worst.  Conservatives need to stop considering it an accomplishment if more people “go to college.”  The objective should not be to save the universities from themselves.  It should be to pop the Education Bubble, create serious alternatives for productive Americans, and starve the Parasitic Class and their training camps of the resources they need to survive. 

Revolutions occur when the political system prevents the most talented people in a society from reaching the status that they feel entitled to.  American culture increasingly resembles one particularly large university, with all the waste, incompetence, and stupidity which that entails.  The authentic American Right will have an opportunity when the talented and productive members of society take a hard look at the cesspool of diversity higher education has become, and decide they can do better with an alternative.
