The deeply-embedded legal atrocity of affirmative action that advances the interests of recent Nigerian and Mexican immigrants over those of natural born Americans similarly highlights the fatal confusion in a culture hurtling into the depths of anarchy and sought-after, celebrated stupidity.
. . . [T]he world has been following the French Revolution narrative now for two-and-a-quarter centuries, and that narrative has failed because democracy did not deliver a Utopia, but instead a globalist dystopia that erased not just class but heritage, customs, values, and families.In the paragraph immediately following this superb passage, Mr. Stevens says that the “rise of the far-Right, who are defined by their nationalism or the idea that a nation is comprised of a single ethnic group, shows that diversity is over.” Well, you can take that to the bank though Stevens is in error to say this is a position taken by the “far-Right.” There’s nothing “far” about it. In fact, the current insanity is what is lunatic and extremist. Leftism with its hostility (1) to the Constitution and the rule of law and (2) to less than totalitarian government is what has brought us to this point. "Neurotics" doesn't begin to describe these freaks.
What we call “populism” is the transition between a world order based around the individual as an equal unit in fungible nations to a civilization format based in social order, shared values and heritage, and a virulent realism that rejects the happy clique [collection] of self-reinforcing illusions which is created by the presumption of being “good” that liberal democracy conveys.
For the past two centuries, the West has seen a minority of neurotics in each country seize power on the pretext of making us all “equal,” and then failing to achieve that while steadily grinding away at any kind of social order, hierarchy, or values system. The result has been massively destructive to the point where, while our technology has improved, everything else is in decline.
Righteous anger of long-suffering normal, hard-working patriotic whites is more like what we’re seeing. But the usual semantic nonsense that places National Socialism and fascism on the “far right” has great currency, so don’t be surprised if normal love of one’s own people and homeland is casually dismissed in this way.
Still, Stevens’s point is well taken. Anyone extolling the wonders of diversity is going to be dismissed out of hand for the moron (or demon) he or she is. Everything else in our lunatic culture is but a rear guard action by the left. They promised utopia but delivered open sewers. People are waking up to that tragic reality. Trying to convince normal people about the wonders of diversity is like trying to convince them that what they feel falling on them is actually rain. That's where we are. The ship is taking a long time to turn around, but the rudder's cranking starboard.
