Toward a Healthy Society: We Must Rediscover Our European Roots

Posted by Socrates in Socrates, White identity, White philosophy, William Pierce at 1:29 pm | Permanent Link

by Dr. William Pierce.

“The recent mass suicide of 39 members of a flaky, New Age religious cult in southern California has generated a great deal of media speculation and discussion of the cult phenomenon. There seems to be a general agreement that as we approach the end of this millennium cult membership and cult activity are on the rise. Perhaps so. One thing on which we have better statistics than cult membership is the suicide rate, and that very definitely is up, especially among young people. So is the rate of drug abuse. So is the divorce rate. So is the incidence of mental illness. So is the percentage of citizens in prison for crime.”

      Whether or not you attribute the current plight of the white race mainly to the actions of Jews and liberals, it must be admitted that the triumph of egalitarianism is complete. The old order, the forces of hierarchic harmony, have been completely routed. Virtually nobody in public life nowadays seriously argues for the radical INequality of human beings. For example, during the New Haven firefighter legal battle this year (Ricci vs. DeStefano), no one argued that the white firefighters should be privileged over blacks just because they were white. Ironically, it was the white firefighters who were complaining that they had not been treated equally enough! So evidently, just to be the black man’s equal is now an aspiration of the white. More generally, seldom if ever do opponents of Affirmative Action argue that blacks are inherently inferior to whites, or base their case on the radical inequality of the races, even though a lot of science could be brought to bear to support that point of view. No, at most, arguments about so-called reverse discrimination revolve around the claim that it is “unfair” to whites because they aren’t treated equally; that they give minorities special privileges unavailable to whites. Clearly, that things should be “fair” and everyone should be “equal” is seen as the only possible starting point. These notions have become so deeply a part of white culture that white culture can’t be said to exist apart from them.

      This is why I think it is unrealistic to expect, as do MacDonald and others, that at some future point whites will suddenly abandon their love affair with fairness and equality. From a conceptual and cultural point of view, there is no longer any other place for them to go. Yet reading MacDonald, one gets the impression that he thinks that an “explicit whiteness” that represents a latent desire for a culture of inequality is there just in the background, waiting to burst forth when whites are somehow pushed just a little more into desperation. But it will never burst forth because whites themselves, via their own love of fairness and equality, have actively turned against it. They no longer desire any kind of inequality in their culture. That wouldn’t be fair!

      Whatever can be said about the past, it is impossible to claim that unemployment today is due to ‘shirkers, wastrels, and incompetents.’ This is simply blaming the victim.

      Unemployment today is due to the massive technological revolutions that have rendered must people, especially men, redundant. The warrior class is largely gone, as wars have been rendered useless by technology that can kill millions at the press of a button. The same is true of farmers. With modern farming techniques, a mere .5% of the population can feed the other 99.5%. All manual labor is equally useless, as trucks and forklifts and such make a man’s muscles obsolete and meaningless.

      Service industries, smiling to customers and beguiling them to buy useless junk, is more suited to women than men, who were allowed to enter the workplace via the invention of the birth control pill, and a variety of time saving appliances like the dishwasher, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, microwave, etc.

      The invention of the steam liner, the airplane, the railroad, and the truck, allow workers from all around the world to manufacture our products at rock bottom prices, thus displacing the work of natives. Without the technology that makes shipping products over vast distances cheaper than paying local men decent wages, we wouldn’t have lost all of our manufacturing jobs.

      And of course, we must recall that ‘calculators’ once meant real living men whose job was to do math. With the invention of computers, many people’s jobs were made irrelevant. The same with all sorts of machinery involved in the production of cars, clothing, or basically anything imaginable.

      Blaming everyone who has lost a job to these combined forces as ‘shirkers, wastrels, or incompetent,’ is absurd. We must get used to the idea that mass unemployment is now the natural state of the economy, and with more inventions, unemployment rates will only continue to grow. Instead of blaming people for not getting jobs when there are no more jobs men can get, we should be sharing the bounty of our increased mechanized efficiency as a citizen’s dividend to employed and unemployed alike. We must get over this old fashioned, protestant ideal of ‘work = good,’ ‘no work = evil, lazy, incompetent, etc.’ The new ideal needs to center around upright character, family life (more specifically, bearing and raising children in a monogamous marriage), and the enjoyment of high culture, as what makes a man.

      Diamed has some excellent insights on the force of technological change in shaping and re-shaping human societies. In a theme reminiscent of the one Kurt Vonnegut elaborated in his satirical novel Player Piano we see that the global technological system is not just toxic to man in its unintended effects, but in a significant sense, it is culturally toxic by design. The whole point of technological advance is to render obsolete the old ways of doing things. It is thereby toxic in direct as well as indirect effect. Massive unemployment is an entirely predictable result of innovation. Technological advance proceeds by increasing “efficiency”. That is its rationale; that’s the Moloch to which everyone’s vocation must be sacrificed. But if an advance is considered “good” if it eliminates the jobs of a lot of people, isn’t the greatest of all possible technological advances the one that would leave all people everywhere unemployed forever? Apparently so, but of course that would cause chaos. People would run amok and would literally not know what to do with themselves. To solve this problem, other thinkers, such as Huxley in Brave New World, Jack London in The Iron Heel, and Thorstein Veblen in Theory of the Leisure Class have all proposed ideas on how the technological system is constrained from this result, or could be. Veblen’s idea was that the rich filled an essential niche in the ecology of capitalism by engaging in conspicuous consumption, deliberately wasting the excess product of the technological system. For London, this niche was filled by war. He thought the capitalist robber barons periodically would start wars, vast conflagrations into which the excess production of the technological system would be cast. Huxley proposed that the technological system might evolve overseers somewhat reminiscent of the archons of Plato’s Republic, who would deliberately restrain production and technological advance in an effort to keep society stable and orderly — the greatest good for the greatest number. Maybe Dr. Pierce and Diamed could both approve of this solution, although they would not, presumably, approve of the sexual excess and the drug use that Huxley also thought would be necessary to keep the people under control. Yet since these things are both hallmarks of our present technological society, could it not be true that these excesses also are occurring as unintended side effects of technological advance? So too, with the increase in the suicide rate, the divorce rate, and the incidence of mental illness that Dr. Pierce begins his address by complaining about. If that’s true — and I believe it is — then the expansion of the technological system is as toxic to upright character, family life, and high culture as it is to everything else about the old ways.

      Diamed makes good points. Also don’t forget that Big Jew loves ‘outsourcing’ jobs to India etc. It may be boring working in call centres or tech support centres but these are still income streams being taken from away from us.

    5. Tim McGreen Says:

      The main reason for mass unemployment is not due to technological advances but to a de-regulated financial system that is totally out of control. The advent of the automobile, for example, did not produce millions of unemployed railroad workers and buggy-makers wandering the streets in search of food and shelter. Economic catastrophies due to wild overspeculation and bad investments are responsible for that.

    6. Tim McGreen Says:

      The money supply and the real value of that money are also important factors in determining the health of the economy. You don’t need a degree in economics to understand that.

      No, that’s completely wrong. The financial system is completely, totally and utterly regulated. Regulation is the problem. If competing currencies were allowed, if banks were allowed to fail, then we wouldn’t have these problems. The problems in the system are ENTIRELY due to regulation.
