Behold the living dead:

Living Dead.jpg

Longing for death’s sweet embrace.

Secret Life of the Human Pups is a sympathetic look at the world of pup play, a movement that grew out of the BDSM community and has exploded in the last 15 years as the internet made it easier to reach out to likeminded people. While the pup community is a broad church, human pups tend to be male, gay, have an interest in dressing in leather, wear dog-like hoods, enjoy tactile interactions like stomach rubbing or ear tickling, play with toys, eat out of bowls and are often in a relationship with their human “handlers”.

The fate of Western civilization is the abattoir. Bit by bit, we begin to understand why. Boundaries are passe, limitations on individual comportment are philistine. In 2016, everyone demands to be themselves and demands acceptance, no matter how putrid those selves are and no matter how cancerous their acceptance would ultimately be to society as a whole. It’s 2016, goyim! No longer is it sufficient to be a functional human being. One must seek relevance through the concoction of increasingly exotic and idiosyncratic identities. Therefore: entire documentaries dedicated to men seeking to have their neg holes pozzed while wearing full body latex dog suits. Pups, you see. Simply harmless gentlemen innocently enjoying the surrender of assuming the personality of a dog while being anally violated.

But it’s all okay, because none of this affects you. Slippery slope don’t real, you provincial cunt. IT’S STUPID TO THINK THAT THIS COULD EVER LEAD TO ANY KIND OF NORMALIZATION OF BESTIALITY. Or anything like that.

The one thing that no one seems to understand, or at least the one reality that everyone studiously avoids is that nothing affects anyone until all of these discrete nothings combine to create one massive conglomerate of something packing enough of a wallop to completely obliterate a civilization. And how can a civilization endure, once values of licence and cum are substituted for foundational principles of order and temperance? Once the door is opened to one vice, all of the auxiliary perversions traipse in behind it in short order-because on what authority could the door be closed to them?

The average person spends so much time genuflecting before the gods of tolerance and liberalism that they are unable to perceive the extent to which pathological dysfunction has become the law of the land and the currency of the realm. They fail to see that everyone around them seeks only to debase themselves and in this pursuit, have become corrupt, capricious, and cum obsessed. That the condition of the average person’s soul has become little better than that of a third world favela.

A right wing junta is looking pretty good right about now. That and some piping hot ovens.

Meanderings

Anglo common law has managed to strike a harmonious balance between bloodless logic and the need to accommodate human frailty. It demonstrates a surprisingly intuitive understanding of human nature and as such, has, over time, gradually developed into a nuanced legal framework durable enough to promote the rule of law without forgetting the human element. I actually believe that the Anglo legal tradition is perhaps the culture’s single most important contribution to the world. In 50 years, this system will likely vanish, consigned to the dustheap of history, buried under the enormous weight of the mass of retards that the West has been steadily manufacturing within the public mis-education system for the past 50 years. The Current Year is very hostile to the the notion that truth is indeed ascertainable and that uniform rules (based upon an understanding of how humans actually are) can be applied in order to effectively thresh truth from lies.

The children of The Current Year possess neither the ability to sustain the current legal system nor to create a parallel tradition that would be equal in magnificence. A system like our current one could have never emerged in an age or a time like the one we currently inhabit. This is an age in which emotion reigns supreme, where logic and rigor are scorned, and in which denial of fundamental human nature is viewed not as stupidity, but as virtue. Nothing methodical, admirable, or interesting could ever come from it.

The Unbearable Autism of Gender Neutrality

New guidance issued from the New York mayor’s office now prohibits city bars and restaurants from refusing to serve alcoholic beverages to pregnant women. According to the the Mayor’s office, this refusal is prohibited by the New York City Human Rights Law which classifies pregnancy discrimination as “discrimination based on gender.” Thus, refusing to serve alcohol or raw fish to pregnant women constitutes rights violations. Quoth the legal wizards on the Commission on Human Rights, in part:

While covered entities may attempt to justify certain categorical exclusions based on maternal or fetal safety, using safety as a pretext for discrimination or as a way to reinforce traditional gender norms or stereotypes is unlawful.

Naturally, this development has been made possible by a confluence of factors: a culture so degraded that it has enshrined as paramount value the primacy of corrosive individualism, fanatic adherence to the ideology of gender egalitarianism, and the devaluation of the lives of the unborn. This guidance is the logical product of a society in which the individual is free to engage in any manner of life destroying acts while those who aim to preserve life are denounced as bigots. This is the perverse morality of a dying civilization. This is the logic of a society so collectively autistic that it views dysgenesis as an acceptable price to pay for complete equality between the sexes.

The logic implicitly operational here is that the genders are equal in every sense, so much so that any deviation from a common standard of treatment is per se suspect, even when there is a material physical condition present in one group that would militate for the disparate treatment in question. There is no functional difference between a man and a pregnant woman that would justify a bartender’s abstention from serving alcohol to a pregnant woman, even though the risks of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) are known to all and have been known to all for decades. We live in a world in which is exercising judgment is a crime and to make an observation is a sin.

But what else could one expect from a state that demurs to hold pregnant women accountable for willfully engaging in behaviors deleterious to the health of “the fetus”?

In 2003, a New York court found that child protection law does not apply to pregnant women whose actions could influence the health of a fetus.

If child protection laws do not extend to the child in utero, and the mother cannot be held legally responsible for conduct that harms the child while in utero, then why should it matter if a pregnant woman indulges in one, two, or even ten drinks?

Ghost World

Charnel HouseI recently read an essay in which the postmodern experience was likened to living in a “corpse world.” Poignant and elegant. Striking, because that is precisely the nature of life in the West. The vague malaise, the listlessness that is the hallmark of the average Westerner, the aimless hedonism-all of the defects of spirit that have developed as a result of living in the graveyard that is late Western civilization. The unease and the despair experienced by the average Westerner is a despair that dare not speak its name because it cannot; the consequences of being surrounded by death but lacking the discernment necessary to recognize decay, to distinguish between that which affirms life and that which ensures death.

The experience of existing in the postmodern charnel house is a profoundly discomfiting one because there is something utterly ridiculous about striving to live in the midst of death. Every value that once fortified man against despair and enabled him to forge meaning out of meaninglessness has been cast off like so much trash. Where we once found solace in God, we are now forced to bow to the ersatz gods of science and nihilism. Where we once took pride in blood and nation, we are now perfunctorily and regularly informed that yielding to such  natural stirrings make us “literally Hitler,” and forced to sublimate this healthy energy-channeling it instead into the pale substitutes of sports and abortive & increasingly exotic identities. Where once stood the family and the status derived therefrom, there now stands atomization, malignant individualism, and aimless status seeking through employment, virtue signalling, and the acquisition of baubles.

Graveyard values subscribed to by the living dead, who live in a world that has already become a mausoleum.


In America, the Trump paroxysm is the latest manifestation of these graveyard sensibilities. Many intuit that the civilization is accelerating towards the abyss. But, as the average soul is incapable of accurately perceiving the true nature of the problem, they seek an earthly & political solution to what is essentially a spiritual & transcendental problem. The problem is that the culture has degraded past the point of redemption; the zeitgeist of progressivism is naught but poorly masked decline that functions to render body from soul. Everyone-from the  most aware to the least-has begun to feel the demoralizing effects of the current state of affairs and they seek out anything that looks like salvation.

I have no quarrel with Trump. Given the current state of things, he may well be the best of the vast array of bad options that we have been presented with. Nevertheless, a Trump presidency will be nothing more than a speed bump on the road to perdition-it may retard the collapse but it cannot prevent what is at this point, an inevitability. In this ghost world, Trump plays necromancer: a wizard looked to to raise the nation from the dead, to restore some vestige of former greatness, to discover some truth in an age of lies.

All the while they amble through valleys of death, looking high and low for life, unaware of their folly.

 

 

 

 

Fisher v. Texas Redux

Fisher v. University of Texas is in the news again. The case is before the Supreme Court again after having been vacated and remanded to the Fifth Circuit for reconsideration over two and a half years ago. The case is the latest in a series of decisions dating back over 35 years grappling with the (dubious) constitutionality of affirmative action-or as it is now euphemistically termed “race conscious admissions”-in public institutions of higher education. Since the Bakke decision in 1978, the Court has consistently held classroom diversity to be a “compelling state interest” and thus on par with such other compelling interests as national security and the protection of the fundamental rights of the citizenry.

Consider that. Diversity is considered to be as important an interest as protecting the nation from the machinations of foreign marauders intending to do it and its people ill.


 

There are two aspects of this case that I find particularly interesting, specifically the public vilification of the plaintiff as a bad plaintiff who wouldn’t have qualified for admission at UT anyway based on her SAT performance and her high school GPA, and the vitriol unleashed against Justice Scalia for some hatefacts observations he made during oral arguments. The criticism launched against Fisher has been nothing less than a magnificent display of doublethink. Fisher’s detractors have criticized her for bringing the case, arguing that she wouldn’t have qualified for admission to an elite school like UT anyway given her underwhelming SAT scores and high school performance. These are the very same critics who approve of affirmative action, which is nothing more than programmatic justification for the admission of URM candidates who wouldn’t have otherwise qualified for admission to elite schools- due to their generally underwhelming SAT scores and high school performance.

Of course, her critics fail to grasp her argument. The argument was never that she was a stellar test taker and a superstar high school student who should have been granted admission as a matter of course. Her argument is simply that based on her test scores, had she been black or Latino, she would have more than likely been granted admission to UT as affirmative action initiatives make it permissible to accept URM candidates with less impressive academic profiles than would be acceptable for white (and marginally Asian) candidates. Her argument is that it is unconstitutional, indeed, unjust for the government to employ different standards for different groups of ostensibly equal citizens, especially when the application of these differing standards serves to disadvantage one group of citizens relative to other groups.

Naturally, this demonstrates the indisputable veracity of the “liberals think that only whites have agency” meme that has been swirling around the alternetz for awhile now. Fisher is ridiculed for being “too dumb” to have secured admission to A Good School. Presumably, her critics would have told her that she should have been better: she should have studied harder to improve her scores so as to ensure admission to the choicest of schools. The onus is completely upon her as a white person to succeed & her failure to do so is met with scorn and derision. When it comes to URMs however, they are viewed as being utterly incapable of performing to standards and of ever bringing themselves up to standards; it’s ridiculous to even suggest that they should try. So it stands to reason that the standards must be brought down to suit them.

Scalia, Scourge of the Left had this to say on the issue:

There are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to get them into the University of Texas, where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a slower-track school where they do well. One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas. They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them.”
“I’m just not impressed by the fact the University of Texas may have fewer [blacks]. Maybe it ought to have fewer. I don’t think it stands to reason that it’s a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible.”

 

 

He’s been blasted for these comments, but he’s absolutely correct. Excellent point poorly made, I’d say. But the data bear out his poorly articulated observations. The attrition rates for black public college attendees is astronomical for black students, and the remainder struggle to finish a four-year course of study. . .in six years.  Considering that for 2007-2008, the school year during which Fisher sat for her SATs the black mean stood at 1280/2400 as compared to the overall mean of 1511/2400, this should come as no surprise. Compare both means to the UT mean of 1901/2400, and the nature of the problem becomes even clearer.

URM students who are admitted to elite public colleges are by and large unable to compete with the rest of the student body and would be better off attending schools where the academic aptitudes of the student body are more in line with their own. Instead, they are pushed into and through colleges where they either fail out or flounder even after selecting economically useless social justice courses of subjective study guaranteed to saddle them with mountains of debt, chips on their shoulders, and no useful skills.


Of course, none of this means anything. The Court has recently become populated by affirmative action nominees willing to contort the Constitution any which to justify their prefab conclusion that the Equal Protection clause exists in order to ensure that some Americans are more equally protected than others.  The underachievers of today must ensure that the pathways to power remain available to the underachievers of tomorrow so that they too may succeed in spite of their mediocrity. As a result of Kagan’s recusal, the outcome will likely be a 4-4 decision – a worthless outcome, as it will create no binding precedent.

So why write about it? Simply because this case is a reminder. As we’ve always maintained here, diversity is not a value. It is an anti-value. It obliterates values. It is antithetical to values and principles, and it forces everything to genuflect before it. It perpetuates a culture of falsehood, failure, and lowered expectations that will ultimately level and destroy everything of worth within a civilization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Middle Class Death Impulse

Christian-Woman-800x400

For any transformative social movement or scheme to be successful, it must have the active support of the middle class. At the very least, such movements must have its passive assent. For as long as it has existed, the middle class has been the gatekeeper of political legitimacy, working to maintain a functional social order by filtering out potentially destabilizing elements before their poison has the chance to infect the mainstream. Consider the responses to both the manufactured “European migrant crisis” and to the incoherent and increasingly strident Black Lives Matter movement. The moribund European middle class finds itself cheering for the Muslim invaders that they will soon be financing on their dime; the American middle class submits itself to hectoring by BLM Minitrue operatives helpfully dispensing advice on how to be more effective allies cucks.

Neither the European immigrant dump nor BLM’s narrative hijack would have been possible in the face of a vigorous and oppositional middle class with the will to forcibly reject these propositions and censure the elites either for daring to foist foreign fuckery upon the nation, or for fecklessly failing to suppress a radical minority fringe group effectively holding the country hostage for gimmedats. A vital middle class is absolutely crucial to the continuation of civilization, as no one cares what impoverished lumpenproles think and as ultra wealthy overlords lack the raw numbers to push political agendas through without the support of a game middle class.

This is the very reason why collectivists of all stripes are antagonistic towards the middle class: they realized how instrumental the bourgeoisie was to the maintenance not only of a free market economic system, but of the civilizational status quo. The middle class has the power to check the degenerate impulses of the lower classes and to police the excesses of the aristocracy. In these tasks, the middle class found its purpose and the will to perpetuate itself.


The middle class across the West is currently in the process of extinguishing itself, the author and finisher of its own demise. It has become a casualty of the very prosperity that it was primarily responsible for creating. The middle class of the West, too clever by half, has “successed” itself into crises of faith and identity. Success has led to decay. Having accomplished everything that it sought to accomplish over the better part of the last 200 years-the achievement of political power, economic access, social liberalization, destruction of the aristocracy and replacement of hereditary leadership with meritocratic leadership, material comfort-it now turns to devour itself. The middle class has found its influence neutralized by modernity and is now left bored and purposeless, trapped by stultifying, safe & meaningless office jobs all the while craving danger and play. What is an iconoclast with no icons to destroy? Not an ideological victor, but rather an ideological nomad.

These have all been hollow achievements, as it turns out that the perverse nature of man makes it so that vying for an ideal invariably brings him more pleasure than the achievement of it. And into the purpose vacuum left by the achievement of middle class goals seeps indolence, decadence and self-destructiveness, as there is nothing left to channel these energies and urges into productive things. Now rather than policing the lower classes, it gleefully adopts its vices; rather than checking the plutocracy, it accepts the imposition of policies and agendas diametrically opposed to its interests and to the best interest of the nations.

The middle class, particularly the Millennial middle class finds itself without a reason to exist: all the great battles have been fought, it would seem that all the great discoveries have been made, material comforts are assured, and they have managed to achieve an unparalleled level of social liberalism. So now what? What else is there? Without true ideals to strive for the middle class turns its passions inwards and begins to hate itself, flagellating itself and seeking to dismantle an unjust “system” that does nothing but transmit undeserved “privilege” to a select few. The middle class plunges to the depths of degeneracy while calling declension “progress.”

With all the trappings of a middle class lifestyle secured, the middle class longs for death. 

There is no greater evidence of this than the response to the European migrant invasion and the longevity of radical movements like Black Lives Matter.

What can one make of the overwhelming middle class support of movements and individuals who, if successful will be hostile to these sympathetic bourgeoisie and scornful of their sensibilities?What to make of the middle class’ enthusiastic support of movements and orgiastic welcome to peoples that will destroy them and the things they value most? How can the Millennial middle class of the West delude itself into believing that Syrian Muslims or ghetto blacks will have any respect for the rule of law, multiculturalism, or a well maintained commons? Why does the middle class accept its victimization at the hands of barbarians while it allows itself to be replaced by fecund foreign populations as it remains largely barren? The desire for oblivion leads them to cheer as the cities they love become thoroughly pozzed by vibrancy and turned into cesspools and war zones, while the childless middle class signalers become targets for their resentful, oppressed pets and their spawn.

What make them think that your standard savage will give a fuck about their bike paths, their farmer’s markets, or their separation of church and state? By supporting these culturally alien movements and peoples, the middle class sows the seeds of its eventual obliteration. These are the actions of a people numbed, who long for sensation again. And the modern middle class of the West has convinced itself that feeling pain is better than feeling nothing at all.
