America Is the Stupidest Country

Totalitarian or authoritarian systems are based on the idea that some people know the truth, and through forceful authority will organize society around their knowledge. People have versions of the truth of varying quality and functionality, and to the extent the model is true and functional, it will work. These systems aren’t great but they at least sort of work, usually.

Modern America is unique in that its leaders don’t think they know the truth, but that they can create the truth, that what people believes becomes true. Keynesian economics and modern race relations wouldn’t seem to have anything in common, but Keynes believed that if people thought the economy was good, it would be good, and liberals believe if the people believe blacks are nice and smart, blacks will be nice and smart. They don’t believe these things are true, only that they should be true, and if people believe them they will be true.

People who believe in objective reality can deal with facts in some kind of rational way. They can accept the theory doesn’t match the facts 100%. If they can’t, they are at least just crazy. To believe something that doesn’t match reality and refuse to change your beliefs is a good definition of crazy.

To believe that reality is malleable, that it is based on a mass hallucination is not even crazy. But that is what modern American liberalism is.

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.

    A good, succinct, restatement on the insanity of modern liberalism.

    But there are two caveats that keep the elite from being either stupid or foolish. 1) They exempt themselves from their own rules 2) They don’t ever fully believe, even the things they claim most passionately to believe.

    Chris Matthews lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland, so where or how is he playing along with the narrative of multiculturalism, except in word, and only probably (whether consciously or not) to shore up the voting base? Jared Taylor and Steve Sailer have made a cottage industry of pointing out this hypocrisy. It pisses liberals off and amuses white nationalists, and no one is really fooled.

    Those who actually do believe that blacks are wonderful either, a. get ther Darwin or award or the mugging from reality, or b. are the children of the cynical liberals like Clinton, who are so insulated from the reality of black aggression that their obliviousness has no consequences. Ferdinand Celine said that the only reason to get rich was to forget; but if you are born rich, the beauty is you never even know in the first place.

    On my second point, if things get too liberal, liberals themselves will pump the brakes if there are no conservatives present to stop them. Bill Maher recently mewled about paying fifty percent of his income in taxes (and that Obama would lose him) and he said David Sirota was spouting “liberal bullshit” regarding the behavior of Muslims. If conservatives are present, liberals will be good cops, but if there is no one present to deal with reality, liberals will throw on the bad cop hat and do what needs to be done.

    Maybe there are still some true believers, like Paul Krugman or Noam Chomsky, but they would never be where Obama is, I don’t think.

  4. Stupidity is “knowing as ‘gospel'” data which is false-to-fact.

    Simply on my own experience, it seems that idealism and stupidity are closely kin. Disabusal of such an unfounded ideal is often abusively painful, worse so because there is no one else to blame. This can leave one cynical, for cynicism is the scar-tissue remnant of idealism that has been burned.

    Agenda politics. Look up Agenda 21, my dear fellow.

    I don’t think they care about the truth. This fairly well known quote from Theodore Dalrymple sheds some light:

    Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

    The fanatics just below the elite who drive the agenda, those hate-filled social losers who’ve turned their personal bitterness into an ideology, simply want destruction, they feed on the pain and degradation they are causing. So do the minority members of this coalition, they are straight genocidal racists dispossessing the natives, with the added desire to live as parasites off of the white population until it is sucked dry – it’s a money-making proposition for them and at least somewhat rational. The white elite certainly don’t believe the folderol of political correctness – look how they actually live – but are willing to pretend to as long as it pays and enhances their power. Most political correctness consists of a sort of ritual mounting of traditional America simply to show them who is boss. Truth has little to do with it.
