Voluntary Imprisonment

Wretchard has a post on the black girl whose band was at the inauguration, then was killed in Chicago. He notes the airy language decrying the tragedy, and how no one will blame anybody specifically. He notes Alinsky advocated naming and attacking specific individuals, but that the opposite tactic could also be used- not naming specific individuals, but only speaking in vage generalities.

He closed the comments when commenters started bringing up race- something I am surprised Belmont Club commenters would do. They are generally very intelligent but fundamentally conventionally conservative individuals who know what is acceptable and what is not. Whiskey used to comment there, but rather than being banned was asked to refrain, I believe.

Wretchard says race is too emotional to be confronted rationally. But that is hardly the case. Race can and has been examined statistically and scientifically, and th genteel HBDers bend over backwards not to make it personal or emotional.

Wretchard would be a fine commenter on these issues- beyond being intelligent and perceptive he is discerning, committed to understanding things not only from some ideology of power but from a standpoint of humanistic compassion. But he has been told not to go there, so he doesn’t.

There are prisons with nothing but a painted line that tells inmates how far they can go. No electric fence, no watchtowers, no guards withguns. It probably makes the prisoners feel better to look at the line and say, “No, I won’t cross that. I don’t want to pay the price.” But if you do cross it, you will be treated just like you had climbed over barbed wire, so th decision was not freely made.

The trouble is there are no more questions left to be asked, and no more topics left to debate. Race is behind almost everything, and lies about everything, particularly race and gender, are what our society runs on. It was a little boy who first said the emperor had no clothes; but the words were burning on evrybody’s lips, they were dying to say it.

This taboo can’t last the next four years of Obama. He is moving left, while the rest of society is groing to survive. The thing abou fear is that it builds and builds, and then suddenly goes away.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    You read alot of weinie blogs, Thrash. Egad! What a pedigree you are developing my chap.

    He’s right! Race is a primodial force. He’s too afraid to discuss it? Doesn’t want to get his hands dirty? Good – he’s got the brains, maybe the muscle but not the balls. He’s no threat to us.

    That’s right, just bottle it up, hope it will all go away. All these shills for the current regime – that’s why the intellectual classes are always the first to be executed. Their whole job is to sustain the status quo.

    When it’s payback time, maggots like that will be kissing our kneecaps. Then we give the orders, we hold the paycheck. He is a smart man – smart enough to only support the winner. He doesn’t believe in anything other than survival. I promise you that if WN paid him 100K a year he’d say anything we wanted.
