The Model Citizen

Mindweapon and game blogger Roosh both recently mentioned a cultural condition in Scandinavian countries called the Jante Law, a norm by which each person is expected to conform to the group, not make waves, and not try to place or lift himself above others. It comes from a novel about life in early 20th century Denmark, but is thought to describe well attitudes widely held today.

In a small town or farming community where there is no anonymity and little privacy, reputation is a critical matter. In another Scandinavian work of fiction, the Emigrants novels of Vilhelm Moberg, the author describes a young man who is destroyed when an older woman implies he had sex with a farm animal. Gossip is excoriated in the Gospels, probably for just this reason. The particular example is Scandinavian, but it seems quite English to me; it could be Japanese as well. These have the common denominator of being societies isolated by water, but human beings are by nature pretty conformist in general.

As people move out of farms and villages into cities, the simple social enforcement of proximity and familiarity lose sway. In the English-speaking world, it was replaced by the Victorian non-conforming churches. These churches promoted a variety of norms, as I have talked about before; but most importantly they promoted a kind of egalitarianism in contrast to the hereditary hierarchy that had ruled before. It’s the spirit of these churches that forms the ethos of our elite today.

That our world is strongly influenced by hymn-singing teetotalers seems far-fetched, but what we have today is the same set of beliefs with the supernatural and formally Christian stripped out. People now are expected to be fundamentally mild-mannered, conformist, deferential to others, especially others labeled as victims, deeply concerned with the poor and oppressed, especially those in Third World countries, and submissive to the authority of the moral arbiters.

Most churches are pretty PC. Far from being enforcers of cultural conservatism and traditionalism, they mostly promote whatever liberal cause is current. Any mainline Protestant church has a fag flag sticker on the sign out front; Catholic and evangelical churches stick with tradition, more or less, on sexual morality but in all other ways- HBD, “civil rights”, money for the poor and minorities, are quite reliably liberal. Baptist minister Mike Huckabee, formally a Republican conservative is a flaming liberal in all practical matters, especially his love of criminals.

The main enforcement mechanism however is the educational system. The typical public school is quite like a Sunday school, gently admonishing young heathens to have love in their hearts for black and brown people and green plants, and to never have any uncharitable or selfish thoughts about them.

All people eventually leave school, except for teachers and professors. Some of them go to PC churches, but the majority don’t. After that TV and popular culture take over, having been a constant presence in their lives of course since they could sit up by themselves. The message continues- be nice, be like everybody else, don’t challenge or resist people classified as victims, learn from your moral betters.

This brings up the question of the widespread non-conformity, consumerism, and individuality of popular culture. Aren’t these things the opposite of the kumbaya conformity primarily mandated? No.

“Non-conformity” is allowed if you are a “victim”- NAM, gay, or female- and expressed in completely harmless ways, like “self-expression”, wearing stupid clothes, talking angrily about the oppressor people, and talking about how because you are “different” you love the moral betters so much because they protect your right to be “different”.

Consumerism is highly egalitarian because it means buying stuff everybody else buys. Cheap, baggy clothes that mask the fat of the slothful and hide something you can actually be proud of, your physical condition; CDs and DVDs containing and TVs displaying popular “artists” promoting “individualism” and “non-conformity” and African athleticism.

Individuality in the system is closely related to non-conformity, but not quite the same. Under the system the most proud and outspoken “individualists” are blacks, the most conformist and herd-oriented people in the world. The “individualist” asserts- “I am me; I do whatever I want and answer and apologize to no one.” Which is permitted as long as you are black, the EBT card holds out, and you don’t offend a homosexual, who as long as he is white is higher in the hierarchy than you.

Here is something I ran across on Andrew Sullivan. It’s by Chris Christie, the man we are told is the conservative of tomorrow. It shows the strongest tendencies of the Victorian nanny state, which wants to help you, and only for your own good-

Wouldn’t it be nice if the government could cure drug abuse? Golly gee Wally, wouldn’t it be keen? It would, but the first problem is you can’t cure “drug abuse”, which is people taking drugs because they like to. The idea that drug addiction is a disease that can be cured is slightly less far-fetched, but not by much. Plenty of people use drugs and whatever the negative consequences seem to be to others, have no interest in stopping. These people are making a lifestyle choice, not suffering from a disease. There are certainly people who want to stop using drugs, but can’t overcome the compulsion to do so. Medical intervention is of little help to these people. Detoxification will deal with the physical dependence, but not the psychological component. Twelve step programs and other support groups provide some help for the motivated, but these are not medical or even psychological interventions.

The system can’t make everybody the same, but they can make a lot of people want to be the same, and push a lot of people in that direction. It makes life very uncomfortable for people who aren’t interested in going along. People don’t like being uncomfortable, so they make themselves think they are going along voluntarily, even happily.

Blacks in this view are model citizens- highly conformist and group-oriented, responsive to moralistic preachers talking about the need for other people to do more for them, responsive to TV, popular culture and consumerism.

Unfortunately lower-class whites tend to go along with this as well. Lower-class whites have more proximity with blacks and are punished severely for failure to kowtow, which to some extent explains the junk culture, sports obsession, and purchasing of crap. But not entirely.

If you’re reading this you probably don’t really participate in any of this stuff. But it’s worth reviewing some of what white people need to do to disengage themselves. TV is pretty much all crap. There is virtually nothing worth watching. To the extent there is, you can see it on DVD or online. Sports are a complete wasteland. If you want to make an exception for sports not completely dominated by NAMs, like baseball and soccer, or white sports like hockey or motorsports, that’s probably OK. Music and other popular culture obviously you can make your own choices.

The important thing in dealing with the system is to disconnect and disengage, rather than fight it. What tools can we use for this? I will refer to these as “whiteness tools”- I like the term “tools” better than “weapons”- and that is what I want to talk about next.

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.

    Whiteness tools is a good term.

    I use mindweapon because mindweapons have been used against us. But when we neutralize the enemy mindweapons, then we can start constructing, and one certainly does not build a house or a bridge with a gun or a sword; you need tools for that.

    The video….doogooderism personified. Be good/be nice/stop harming yourself, or we’ll make you do it. That’s mommy.

    Good post.

    I knew we were in for it when I saw Christie surrouned by at least 3 blacks.

  4. The enemy, death, remains, though that enemy has been defeated, so that when death comes, it can be received not with despair, but with triumph.
