America, the Land of the “Free”

At Eradica, Firepower speculates as to whether “America” is already lost. I’m beginning to think it never existed in the first place.

The one blogger I really like now is Anonymous Conservative. He has a simple idea, which he illustrates over and over again- the search for free resources versus surviving on limited resources. Simple as it is, it explains a lot of human existence.

Animals either live off the territory they have, or they find a new one. If they go to a new one, it may be unoccupied, occupied by competitors easily displaced, or by competitors difficult to displace. In general animals must defend their own territory against intruders and can take over new territory only opportunistically.

Oceanic transportation changed human life dramatically. A boat was for millennia the only was to move heavy stuff long distances, and that includes people. Once Europeans were able to venture outside of the Mediterranean, the Baltic, and the North Sea, they found vast territories inhabited by Neolithic people with little ability to resist invasion.

The earliest development was slave plantation agriculture. The tropics were a hostile environment for Europeans, and Africans were dangerous and difficult to handle, but the commodities produced brought a huge profit when transported to Europe.

Much of North America was not suitable for Africans, and inhabited by more warlike natives. Still the land could be farmed in small units by peasants, and so they came, for the free land. To buy land was an impossible dream in Europe, but if you were willing to hazard Indian attacks you could have your own farm in North America.

The Native American response is usually communicated to us in progressive historical terms along the lines “White man speak with forked tongue, take our land.” But they must have been driven crazy. Whites won few significant battles with Indians. Mostly Indians killed whites as they pleased. But the whites just kept coming, more and more, and they didn’t seem to care about the terror tactics that would have put any sane people on notice to stay the hell out of their territory. The Indians were not defeated in the normal sense, they were simply overwhelmed.

The American settlers were certainly hardy pioneers but they were also moving away from pain and restricted resources to comfort and plentiful resources. People came to America because it was easier, more food, more money, more land, more status.

And, when things got tough, there was always someplace to go, farther west. As a place got crowded, expensive and with few resources and lots of competition, you could go someplace fresh. Part of this process was that as a new area became established, bankers and businessmen showed up from the east, to establish more social control. But if you objected to being “sivilized” you could “light out for the territories”.

Of course there’s no “west” anymore, now that California is packed to the gills, but if you are tired of the crowding and expense in California you can go to Colorado, where the prairies on the Front Range are filling up with strip malls and subdivisions.

Americans in general are people who when things get rough, avoid conflict by going somewhere else. This is the white nationalist strategy as well, the problem being that even places long overlooked by TPTB like Colorado or Utah are being californicated, and all any small town needs to be ruined is one nasty lawyer to bring it to its knees.

Confrontation has to happen at some point, but I’m not sure that Americans are up to it.

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.

    I’m not a Freudian or a Jungian, but I think you should never underestimate the subconscious, seething rage. Call them what you want: Red Staters, Cornpone Nazis and Palinites with pitchforks (James Howard Kunstler), or the silent majority (if they even are a majority anymore), these people have played by the rules for too long, and had their rules used against them for too long, for something not to eventually manifest. Trump’s lasting impact in the race (despite the naysayers) is some indicator of this; even if he loses at this point, he’s gotten way further than anyone would have thought.

    When avoidance becomes impossible, anything is possible. And numerical superiority doesn’t mean a damn thing. Four humans using their brains can keep a mob of zombies at bay.

    America existed, Thrashy.

    America WAS the white ethnostate, from about it’s origin to 1920 or so. We used to have a eugenic movement. They fell into decadence, and by WW2 it was all over. America lost that war, in every way but militarily. I now think the US became a police state in 1969.

    Not all Americans run when things get tough. It once took the National Guard and bayonets to integrate us. Our great direct action soldiers have fought the enemy directly, only to be betrayed by those they protect.

    Our new frontier is the conquest of fear. The enemy appears invincible. Few are willing to set sail and leave the safety of the shore.

    Holy crap, your boy is long-winded, Thrashy.

    Is he a racist or a WN? I see him talking around things a lot.

    “America WAS the white ethnostate, from about it’s origin to 1920 or so.”
    Read this, went away and pondered it. This short statement by Ryu is really quite extraordinary. America was essentially a white nationalist country. This observation, in the right circumstances, could be rhetorically important. In essense, my European ancestors either founded (the English ones) or joined (the German ones) a white nationalist country. My country is a white nationalist country. We didn’t move, they changed it. It’s still ours.
    As an originally white nationalist state, if it’s not explicit in the constitution, it’s darn near explicit (Indians don’t count, blacks count just for purposes of apportioning white influence). Of course the constitution changed, but the country by law was kept essentially European until 1965 with the white nationalist immigration act of 1924.
    As a rhetorical weapon, I think it’s best to emphasize America as a white ethnostate to a date as recent as is reasonably arguable – 1965.

      I don’t own that statement, Brucy. FP made it. I just ripped it off him.

      Murka was designed only for white men. By 1890, we had this place cleared out. But, we made some mistakes. We didn’t export the blacks after the civil war, for one.

      • Bruce says:

        Yes, or, at a minimum, they should have been some chunk of land they had to stay on – I don’t know Florida. Or maybe the Southwest so there’d be an African buffer between the U.S. and Mexico.

  7. Bruce says:

    should have been GIVEN …..

  8. Toddy Cat says:

    Yes, the period 1965-1975 is crucial, and the true history of that period has yet to be written.

  10. At this point its not even fear, its a bad habit. You play by the rules long enough and its hard to break out even when you find out the others are cheating you. When it happens it’ll be quick. It’ll start small and grow big like a snowball going downhill. The system is dead. Its so broke its not even funny. I wonder how many schlubs will die fighting in the burning house of Die-vershitty?
