How America Avoids Europe’s Death

Europe is dying for one reason: the lack of belief in commonality. Having created the most educated, inventive, free & prosperous culture in history, they assumed it would continue … just because.

The tribes fought & worshiped and fought some more between inventing the modern world. Tribalism became nationalism. Pagan & competing worship became Western Christendom. Fertility populated the Age of Exploration, bringing education, literacy, modern medicine and intellectual curiosity to the world.

Then they turned their backs on nationalism. Turned away from worship. They fantasized that a forced commonality many degrees more comprehensive than had organically arisen between their now-peaceful tribes could do other than destroy those – their – tribes, giving them less commonality than had existed for centuries. And their commonality, their culture, died.

And left a vacuum no longer filled with nationality or worship, no longer filled with invention, pride or life itself.

The flowing into this cultural vacuum of Pan-Arabism is the logical flow of a proud culture into territory lacking commonality for the first time in millennia. It fills Europe now with a different worship, and a culture that does not recognize national borders but seeks global dominance instead only for its worship, acting on a belief stronger than the faltering European tribes because they are one tribe. And they are conquering all before them.

America long has been more involved in worship, more tied to our single huge nation than the tiny tribes of Europe. America took in millions from these warring tribes and melded them into one enormous, modern, educated tribe, one nation, essentially one worship.

We, too, now foolishly are turning our backs on nationalism and the culture that made us great in all senses of that word.

The siren call of communism, also not recognizing national borders, is so strong it has pulled half our population away from our ubertribe, the most successful in history. It has destroyed our fertility, our belief in our exceptionalism – an exceptionalism that only can be denied by willful ignorance.

Our new borderless tribe rejects the ubertribe that is America, rejects nationalism, rejects worship. It believes that because it rejects tribalism, our common enemy will, as well, that if it rejects our culture, our culture will not be displaced by one more aggressive.

They are wrong but will not recognize it until it is too late.

Our half of the American Ubertribe recognizes the threat, but has yet to recognize the need for mobilization, to call up the forces required to meet the enemies in what is a two-front war.

So we begin our competition with pan-islam, a far more primitive and brutal tribe than we, a tribe of a savagery we left millennia ago, and with an internal, increasingly communist enemy who hates us nearly as much.

Both enemies hate most what it means to BE American: Liberty.

We begin our competition with leaders not of the American Ubertribe, but domestic and philosophical enemies of our tribe, of ourselves, our culture, our heredity… and of our children – our posterity. These all are being infiltrated with and propagandized by the other, more savage enemy. Both are existential.

Three forces will meet on the field: a communism that recognizes no borders but only totalitarianism, a pan-islam totalitarianism that recognizes no borders but death, and Americans.

As in all wars, the longer we wait to engage our enemies, the bloodier will be the fight.

To win, to ensure the preservation of liberty and human freedom, the fight must be joined, and in our fight we must be as or more brutal than our enemies, for it is brutality that wins wars and saves – or conquers – civilizations.

Smart bombs and precision munitions are tidy weapons of combat. But combat is only a part of war.

War is brutal overwhelming force that destroys not only an enemy’s capability to resist, but their will to do so. Defeat in war annihilates the ability to raise one’s head for one’s cause. It is overwhelming defeat. It is not confined to any battlefield.

War is not the loss of an engagement on the field of battle or a street or in a town, only to go home to lick one’s wounds, say hello to the wife and kids, rest & rearm.

War is the destruction of that home, of any ability or capacity to leave behind the fight.

War is not killing warriors. It is killing the enemy tribe. War is not killing armies. War is crushing the opposing ideology and its adherents, and the cities, towns, farms, transport, electrical & water distribution grids supplying and feeding them.

War is not an Apache helicopter and a chain gun on a dozen killers in a dark, empty field, nor a precision guided munition on a house of enemy leaders.

War is Dresden and Cologne, Tokyo and Berlin. Normandy Beach and Guadalcanal. War is Hiroshima.

War is killing ideologies and the political organizations – nations – that contain them.

If we are unwilling to make war – brutal, hard, final war – we will be defeated, for our enemies already are making brutal war on us, our women, our girls, our society, our culture.

History will not care that we refused brutality to defeat our enemies utterly, but only that the tribe willing to be the most brutal defeated all others.

Will it be us? Or our enemies?

War comes when the danger exceeds the ability of the Rule of Law to defeat it.  Neither enemy, not the Left, not islam, recognizes the Rule of Law.

War has already arrived. It is time to join the fight.

Liberty … or …?

Some have noted this American enemy seems to have gained about 40 lbs since she began living off the fat of the land as we peasants starve looking for work, accept crap Democrat-run K-12 and college, put-up with and pay for violent, illiterate, unskilled big-government immigrants by the millions, and remember liberty only in our dreams.

This anti-freedom bigot is but a symbol of all that is wrong with America.

Americans once fought a revolution over far less than the crap we are putting up with today. As has been pointed out, not even King George had the powers Obama unilaterally has arrogated to himself – and that the GOP has refused to rein in. The last time a monarch in England tried to assume the power Obama has been allowed to take, the result was the Glorious Revolution.

Not sure what we are waiting for – it ain’t gonna get better by itself; Leviathan isn’t going to GIVE back OUR rights, liberty and powers….

I’d say it’s about time to get Glorious.

One of America’s Freedom Riders, John Lewis, in the struggle for Civil Rights, once asked, “If not us – then who? If not now – then when?”

Our liberty is every bit, and more, at risk of enslavement by Leviathan today. Our liberty is not being infringed because of our color. We are, all of us, being degraded to slaves to a totalitarian government and ideology for which half of us, in true ignorance, vote.

Frankly, I never again want myself or my family to be hostage to the failed ideology of the Left. I don’t want to discuss it with them as they are immune to history and facts and logic. I don’t want them around any more than I want islam around – both are totalitarian ideologies that reject the Liberty that was America’s founding principle.

I don’t want to continue to support a system in which half the population has no kids yet demands the entitlements that only can be paid for by strong fertility.

I don’t want to continue to support a system in which half the population demands to be state-sponsored parasites on the children of the half that rejects their failed ideology.

I don’t want to continue to support a system in which half the population is more than comfortable stealing future living standards from the children of the other half in order to buy votes for totalitarian power today.

THIS is why I support Trump: The status quo has failed – and no one else out there is willing to say and do what needs to be done to burn it down. Not Cruz. Not Johnson. Certainly not Hillary or Bernie.

Trump may be Liberty’s last chance.

when there was no such thing as ‘shovel-ready’ jobs.

First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of
companies to his union supporters.

through executive fiat.

First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the
deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those
with criminal convictions.

First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of
his political appointees.

First President to terminate America ‘s ability to put a man in space.

First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law
unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

And you thought he was just the first Black president…

Disruption. Innovation. Trump.

Why Trump. Give me a sec here…

In 1967, the Johnson admin initiated Project Follow Through, the largest & most comprehensive study of pedagogical methods ever. The top publishers of K-12 curricula were funded to implement their curricula in their ideal methods – assistants, materials, etc. Some focused on math, some on reading, some on self esteem. Then another guy, not part of the teaching establishment joined with a different idea. He was an ad guy. In our capitalist society, who can be more interested in learning how people absorb information… than an ad guy?

He beat the math curricula in math, the reading guys in reading, the self esteem guys in self esteem. He kicked ass. Kids under his methodology showed a statistically significant advantage in High School from his system in 1st & 2nd Grade

The final results of the study were sanitized so that “everybody won.”

Why? The establishment refused to accept one not of their own.

In 1980, Reagan…

In 2016, Trump…

Getting the point?

Between? Establishment pols. Useless wars. Trillions of debt. A society in decline

The establishment is more interested in stasis than progress, in tradition than innovation. In their own ass than  a disruptive – and better – future.

It matters.

Disruption. Innovation. A better future.

The Core Values of Islam and its Historic Decline into Savagery

Dr Walter Russel Mead, whom I admire and whose columns I follow, has an interesting take on the decline of islam here.

I’m not at all sure I agree with Dr Mead’s conclusion, however: “… the failure of the Arab world to … find a way to be economically and politically successful under modern economic conditions without losing the core cultural and social values.”

If one is to see these values as only those propagated over the past few centuries as islam has been overtaken by its fundamentalists and declined into an obvious cult of death, barbarity and savagery, sure. But if one defines its “core cultural and social values” as those which earlier caused it to rise among nations, then, no.

The “core” values of a civilization can be seen as those which cause it to succeed as a civilization, which islam did for many centuries, at which time it was able, through those “core” values to be “economically and politically successful,” to tolerate others within its midst, to reach heights in art, math and science.

When a civilization is in decline, as islam has been for the last couple of centuries (see Lewis, Bernard, “What Went Wrong, The Clash between Islam and Modernity in the Middle East”), then it becomes difficult to argue or conclude, as has Dr Mead, that its “core… values” are the problem.

No. The problem, and the reason it can no longer compete, is because it allowed its far-right fundamentalists to overthrow those core values, and turn them into what drives the savagery of a formerly successful civilization to failure.

Interesting as it may be, however, to discuss WHY it cannot compete with the modern world, the WHY is not concerning to us today – only the THAT: It – provably –  CANNOT compete with modernity, and its descent into savagery only is accelerating. Eradicating it is the only civilized alternative for the billion people trapped in it – and the 5 billion at risk from it.
