War, most dissident Brahmins agree, is upon us. The peaceful path is prolonged suicide by demographical replacement. The current system offers no solution. America may have found temporary hope in president Donald Trump, but such hope seems faraway for West Europe, whose constitutions firmly assert a system of checks and balances, the intent of which was to make sure those in power don’t abuse their power, the practice of which means no one is allowed to rule. Chronic kinglessness is written into the constitution: no one in is in command of our airplane and no one is allowed to be in command of this airplane even if it is crashing at faster speeds everyday, as we see happening now. The cockpit is empty, save for a bunch of conspiracies that exert power for selfish short-term reasons. Such is the current nature of West European state policy.
When democracy started out in the Netherlands there were only a few parties, all proudly founded on ideological principles. But as time went on these parties discovered the cruel capriciousness of the voter and how solely dependent their power was on this voter base that kept changing its mind. New parties popped up like mushrooms, old parties splintered. No one could hold on to anything. Today there are more parties than you can wag a stick at. And all the old parties have shrunk to a fraction of their old size.
Politicians nowadays publicly whore themselves out for votes. They have no vision, are not allowed a vision except for that eternal catchphrase looping in their head: ‘what will my voter base think of this?’ In fact their voter base couldn’t care less about 99% of what you do, but politicians will always act as if because they never know which 1% will be judged.
After more than 100 years of democratic experiments we have learned with great surprise: voters vote selfishly. The politician’s actual capability is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is the amount of FeelGood the voter associates with a politician and his party. This is why in Holland the most successful parties are those that give away free stuff, also called other people’s stuff. If too much free stuff is being given away in too little time we vote on parties that slow down the rate at which more free stuff is given away and we pat ourselves on the back for our prudence.
Problem is you eventually run out of free stuff to give away. The industrial revolution has given us lots of free stuff to give away, but eventually we will still run out. Even worse: the belief that we could give away free stuff for ever is equivalent to a perpetuum mobile scam or, more down to earth, to a pyramid scam, which is why our entire political system has been selecting for scammers, salesmen that promise you to get rid of your bald spot for only 12 monthly instalments of $99,99. See for instance how politicians discovered that the problem of an inconsistent voter base can be solved easily by importing a new voter base from a foreign country. It might be rough if that populace takes with them a religion that demands the beheading of infidels, but that is exactly the kind of long-term problem politicians have learned to ignore: we need to take votes away from our opposition now!
Of course when we point out that the whole thing is a scam the politicians will point to our constitution and indignantly cry that they are acting fully within its spirit! This is true and part of the reason why we are in such deep shit. There is no constitutional solution to our problem. Our constitutions have specifically been designed to ensure chronic kinglessness. West Europe has painted itself in a corner it can not get out of peacefully.
In the United States, the people are gearing up for war. Mind you, we are still far from a full-blown civil war and I have faith that Trump will squelch violent uprisings while president. But the fire is rising all right.
In West Europe, the people are spiritually depleted. The revolution against God has spiralled further and further out of control and now we have reached the point where everyone is holier than Jesus, smarter than Nietzsche and better than God. We do not listen to our friends or to our family members because we all believe that The Holy Me, the individual, knows best, which is a frame our material decadence allows us to uphold our entire life. We say we listen to one another but we simply don’t. Reality has ceased to pull at our feet and consequently we cease to listen to anything that does not flatter our ego. Hence the tendency to listen more intently to the media than your own family: your family might offend your ego, but media will always try to make you feel good about yourself. West Europe has in effect become an echo chamber of egotistic pretentious narcissistic crap.
Honestly I do not see a solution. Ideally we’d have white men rioting. Now that would be a sight. But things will have to deteriorate to much worse before such a thing will happen. Which means we have to grit our teeth and play the waiting game. Perhaps a black swan event will take place. Likely any outcome will be bad. I keep thinking of David Hines’ description of war: Godzilla stamping through your town, arbitrarily killing a few people each day. We are far from that point, but on the current path such an outcome is inevitable.
