Right Side of History Produces Surprisingly Shitty Third Wave Microroasts

Every safariist is familiar with the twiggy androgynous hipsters that constitute much of Western civilization’s urban native fauna. These peevish herbivores are distinguishable by a complete absence of sexual dimorphism and unmistakable keening when confronted: you’re a fucking white male!

More perceptive zoologists will also note a herd-like social orthodoxy that is counterintuitively cultivated to eschew the appearance of conformity. Observers theorize this mindset holds that if everyone they know is saying the same thing, it must be very novel indeed. And true rebels are forged in the high volumes of repetition.

Though despite (or perhaps because of) their conspicuous virtue plumage, these peacocks often become poultry to the swarthy predators they invite into their habitat. This leads to infuriated demands for demilitarization of rifle-owning rural farm-nazis. Some may recognize this as a not-very-veiled attempt to obliquely defang their cherished “minorities” before another hipster-cock culturally appropriates some stray rounds of diversity.

This is why I often imagine, with what is almost certainly a surfeit of optimism, that more than a few of these historically unique creatures retire from a day of shrieking at racists to secretly yearn for their success. Because no matter how precious your posturing, a civilized life depends on a society of civilized people. No one wants their lattes ruined by arterial blood spray.

All of which is a circuitous route to say I really don’t think effete liberals want the Brazil they think they do.

I’ve never been to Brazil and so will comment only from what I have read buttressed by the personal experiences of people I know who have lived there. And from those sources, I feel sanguine in saying the place is an irredeemable shit-hole that any parent who felt something more than contempt for his children would earnestly wish to avoid for their future.

My thoughts turned to this topic upon reading of that country’s recent declaration of financial disaster. This resulting from the economic strain of a second-world society trying to produce the elaborate Potemkin pageantry of a first-world olympics. It’s much like asking blacks to maintain the amenities of a white western city. An ambitious request to be certain.

Of course economic disaster is only the tip of the favela with the 2016 Rio olympics. There is also the filthy water, which in less polite terminology is sometimes called “urine.” The beaches and waterways there being open reservoirs of sewage, viruses, and bacteria–that is to say, The Smallest Immigrants.

Then there is the crime. Brazil boasts 19 of the world’s 50 most enthusiastically homicidal cities. A national embarrassment that 31 slots fell to foreign competition. Viewing the situation positively, I expect a patriotic murder-surge could reclaim many of these before the next survey. Though bordering states seem just as determined and Brazil only has so many cities to begin with. They’re all nices places to die, but you wouldn’t want to live there.

But it must be conceded that the majority of people in Brazil won’t ever be murdered, even in São Luis. So we can largely dismiss homicide figures as more fascist demagoguery from Donald Trump. What citizens there do face, however, is an oppressive blanket of petty and more-than-petty crime that alters the way people live entirely. Rampant urchin thievery, burglaries, break-ins, car-jacking, and assaults. Most of these activities aren’t even constitutional. Regardless, quality of life is altered dramatically when the perception of crime punctures that threshold from exception to expectation.

A predictable corollary to Brazilian crime is the official response to it. Just as American law enforcement has evolved with its demographics from temperate beat cops wielding dusty truncheons and revolvers into domestic soldiers in full military kit, so has it hardened in response to lawlessness south of the equator. Reports of suspects being beaten while in custody are complimentary to officer restraint in comparison to many other instances involving summary execution.

And while life in Brazil is always on discount, just living is charged at a premium. Housing, cars, clothing, healthcare: all carve ugly gashes into disposable income there. Many Brazilians schedule foreign junkets just for purposes of shopping. Supply chain inefficiency, gross corporate and government bureaucracy, punitive taxes, and native inability to produce mass quality output all contribute to the cost burden. Also, it’s likely that certain protectionist policies do as well. Some things are not worth their cost and some things are (you’re welcome for that tautology).

But the resolutely unmentioned fact is that there is a certain quality of people and culture necessary to produce the preferred shitlib lifestyle. This being one of society’s most unappreciated points. And gaining that appreciation post-mortem has a poor track record of resuscitation.

Then there are the costs of education. Or more accurately, the costs of keeping your children alive through the process. As in America, all parents with means seek out Good Schools. The difference in Brazil is that the options for those are almost exclusively private–and that’s going to cost you dearly also.

The conclusion, offered in these pages often, is that diversity is a luxury good. And when purchased in abundance, budgets are left with little else besides.

I suppose no contemplation of our engineered brown-mustard future would be complete without mentioning Brazil’s almost science-fictional levels of income inequality and corruption. There miles of squalid shanties muscle for rank against thin skirmish lines of luxury high-rises, half crowned with helipads. A feature that wealthy residents will find very convenient indeed when their multitudinous neighbors one day spill out in rage. I really don’t think I’d like to be at a sidewalk cafe enjoying an artisanal cocktail of thyme sprigs and peach bitters at that moment. Fortunately, modern Los Angeles bears no resemblance to that environment whatsoever. But those with a particularly vivid imagination might want to deploy it to envision what life in America may resemble when its population resembles Brazil’s.

Despite their obligatory anti-racist fulminations I almost believe a few libs might possess the same powers of imagination. A similar, perhaps only instinctive, capacity to discern the foundations of their lifestyle. If so, you can wager there is more than one prog sub-conscious responding to their own fucking-white-male and alt-right denunciations with a silent please God let them win.

  1. Interesting piece. Thank you.

    An observation, however. You wrote the following, which you probably intended should encompass events in Orlando:

    “Though despite (or perhaps because of) their conspicuous virtue plumage, these peacocks often become poultry to the swarthy predators they invite into their habitat. This leads to infuriated demands for demilitarization of rifle-owning rural farm-nazis. Some may recognize this as a not-very-veiled attempt to obliquely defang their cherished “minorities” before another hipster-cock culturally appropriates some stray rounds of diversity.

    “This is why I often imagine, with what is almost certainly a surfeit of optimism, that more than a few of these historically unique creatures retire from a day of shrieking at racists to secretly yearn for their success. Because no matter how precious your posturing, a civilized life depends on a society of civilized people. No one wants their lattes ruined by arterial blood spray.”

    Mateen announced that he acted in order to stop us from bombing his country. (This elephant in the room motivation has been assiduously ignored by the media.). Is retaliation in kind “uncivilized”?

    • It’s obviously uncivilized to let people into your country who intend to harm you, no matter their motivation. I want us out of that entire ass end of the globe. Though even if I were as war rabid as John McCain, it would hardly make sense to say “let them in to attack our civilian population, after all fair’s fair.”

      Second, and not responsive to your point, Mateen’s statement runs wholly counter to the “he was American because he was born here” baloney. Being born here certainly didn’t dissuade him from identifying with his blood nationality. Maybe he just wasn’t familiar with current fashion on 14th Amendment jurisprudence.

      • There was a moment in the Repube debates when someone mentioned “Americans going overseas to join ISIS”. I wanted so badly for Trump, a moderator (OK, highly unlikely), or anyone from the audience to blurt out, “Those aren’t Americans!”, to test my theory that every candidate not named Donald would have been reduced to a drooling vegetable after the ensuing stroke or aneurysm. That not happening left his victory somewhat anticlimactic.

    • Key concept in your post: “his country.” He isn’t part of this country; he’s not an American. He’s an Afghan. Depending on how charitable one is feeling, that either makes him an enemy alien, or a traitor.

      Blood and soil. A nation consists of people, not of boundaries on a map. He brought his nation with him because he’s Afghan; no matter what his physical position on the globe. Just like an American is a white English-speaking person with a basically “frontier British” culture, whether you stick them in Hartford, Connecticut or Calcutta.

      Nation is inescapable, because it’s hard-coded both in genetics and in the cultural perceptions we receive from our parents, mostly.

  2. Brazilian here. Your descriptions are very accurate, but here are some facts:
    1. If you’re rich, no matter where you are in Brazil, you’re going to have a good life, with safety, education, etc (I think it’s like this everywhere in the world, maybe)

    Now, open a Brazilian Political Map.
    There are very strong distinctions between the States and the Regions.

    The “North” region is full of shit, jungle and poverty. The population consists mainly of Blacks and Indigenous.

    The “Northeast” region is also full of shit, deserts, poverty and infected with crime. The population is mainly Black, with a few pocket White elites in the capitals, they are from Dutch and Portuguese descent and live there since Colonial times. These whites have no salvation, they are a bunch of degenerates.

    Those two regions are the worst of the Country, Africa-tier, only create fiscal deficits and, just like the Migrant Crisis in Europe, they’ve been sending shit people to the Southern regions for decades now.

    The “Center-West” region is a grassy flatland, barely with people, but with vast Agricultural and Cattle productive lands, with “Rural Barons”. This region is not that shitty, at least economically, but is completely degenerate. The population consists mainly of Whites of Portuguese descent and Indigenous people, Blacks are a fourth minor group – The third is the racemixeds.

    The “Southeast” region is the Heart of Brazil. “Espírito Santo” is an “European State” with a multitude of small-scale Farming Families, mainly from Northern Italian, Southern German and Pomeran descent – It also has a strong Minning Industry.
    “Minas Gerais” was a California-like state, full of Gold, that now specialized in Cattle. Many people live here, and it’s one of the richest and most populous states. The population is mainly White of Portuguese descent with Mixed second and Blacks third.
    “Rio de Janeiro” is the worst place in the world. The state itself has nothing of value, only poor people who used to be slaves and settled in the interior after being released. The Capital, the famous city, has no riches at all: The city is divided by extreme black poverty, a shrinking white/mixed middle class, and a rich white minority (Portuguese, French, Dutch) – The city’s income sources are Services, which only move capital, but do not create, and Oil Extracting in the Sea.
    You see, when you said the City went bankrupt it is because our State Oil Company, Petrobras, is going bankrupt as well, so, the City has no income source.
    “São Paulo” is the Crown of Brazil: The richest, most industrialized, most productive state. It’s mainly composed of White Italian Immigrants who came there and Industrialized the shit out of it – the Mattarazzo family was, at one time, one of the richest families in the world, Rothschild and Rockfeller level, that got shut down. There are Blacks and Indigenous people, mainly migrants from the poor Northern regions.

    The last region is the “South”. The South is mainly composed of Germans, and has minorities of Blacks who migrated from the Northern regions. It has the most educated, most healthy, less violent places of Brazil. They even have Separatists movements and a Nationalist Front (which is not a party).

    The South region is a good place to live, High-Level American or Standard European. São Paulo is good too, but it’s too mixed and full of corruption that will lead it to its decay. Espírito Santo is great too, European level.

    And that’s it.

      • Let me supply some additional informations to supplement those given by the Anonymous Brazilian above.

        First thing, Brazil is very large in size. It’s larger than the Lower 48 states of the US. So it’s difficult, though not impossible, to generalize. You make a mistake, to pick one example, when you write of the country’s recent declaration of financial disaster. Brazil didn’t declare that (although the financial situation is quite disastrous indeed), Rio de Janeiro State did. There are other 26 States in Brazil.

        Second thing, Brazil is also very large in population: 200 million. Half of that, according to self-identification in the census, considers itself “white”: 100 million. Even if you give a very big discount, and guesstimate that “only 30% of that really is white”, it would still be 30 million people.Only the larger European countries have more (white) people than that..

        Third thing, this population is very much not uniformly distributed across the country. The website “http://patadata.org/maparacial/” (**) gives the racial distribution within Brazil, putting every single person on the map according to census data. You can zoom in and out. If you want to play with it, white is branco, mixed-race is pardo, black is preto, Asian is amarelo and American Indian is indigena. The “Asians” are almost exclusively Japanese: Brazil has the largest Japanese-descended population in the world outside Japan proper

        I very much suggest you take a look at the link. You’ll see the broad swath of “white Brazil” in the center-south,with the three Southernmost states being all 85-90% white. You won’t find things like the picture you posted of the favela and the high-rise around there. Put some city names of southern Brazil in Google Images: Gramado, Canela-RS, Bento Goncalves, Nova Petropolis, Blumenau, Joinville, Londrina – or just wander around in Google Maps. You’ll be surprised.

        In the southernmost state, which I know better because I lived in there for a while, pop. ~10 million, some 4-5 million are descendants of 19th century German colonists, and some 2 million still speak a Germanic language – Riograndenser Hunsrückisch, which branched off some German dialects in there, much like Afrikaans developed out of Dutch among South African whites. Google “Gisele Bündchen”.

        To finish: Large area, large population and great social segmentation make Brazil a really complicated country. Even with a low mean IQ, Charles Murray, of Bell Curve fame, has estimated that Brazil has a smart fraction equal to Germany’s in absolute numbers – of course, since Germany has 80 million people to Brazil’s 200 million, Germany’s smart fraction is much larger as a proportion ot the total population, but stil…

        Why doesn’t it show more? Because democracy. The fall of the monarchy in 1889 spelled disaster for such a segmented, low-trust, low-social capital, … in other words, such a diverse society. Answering Cristina below, monarchism has remained a strand in Brazilian society and has gathered some publicity in the great protests of the last few years against the leftist government. But it is not a real political force, and neither are the separatists that the Brazilian anonymous above mentions.

        Sorry for the length of the comment…

        (**) I’m putting the link as plaintext in order not to fall into the spam box.

      • That’s useful insight, and I appreciate your bringing it forward. Though it begins to miss the point. Chicago is a fiscal and demographic disaster also, and yet anyone inclined to its defense could detail a broad array of still livable neighborhoods and solvent institutions–the cataloging of which wouldn’t actually diminish the original criticism.

        If the Brazilian South were to achieve political autonomy and jurisdiction over its boundaries, then we’d have a whole new issue to discuss. Though as it is, I grant the helpful information, though it doesn’t much alter the strategic perspective.

      • Oh, I agree with the original criticism and the strategic perspective, if that was unclear. Brazil, taken as a whole, is a mess, and it would take an unlikely series of events for this to change, probably involving cloning Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew and installing him as dictator for 40 years (as a Brazilian friend joked to me once).

        Yet, a large part of Brazil is not only very livable, but middle-class, decent, and resilient regarding the disasters, corruption, and general incompetence that characterize the country taken as a whole. That would be the broad array of still livable neighborhoods and solvent institutions which do exist. They don’t change the general picture, but they’re not nothing, either.

    • I have Portuguese family that immigrated to Brazil – they’re in the south although I’d have to ask my dad where exactly. Is it true there are certain factions that want to re-instate an Imperial system of governance?

  3. Re paragraphs 1&2; I like the descriptor “uniform of the non-conformist”
    Re Brazil – the partially sane Camille Paglia has a fascination for the place, which I have to assume is attributable to her self imposed genetic dead ending, and her appreciation for the hyper sexual (an innate quality of Brazil and other post-progress societies)

  4. Looks like our friends in Mexico came in a close 2nd, with various Central and South American countries thrown in. Of course the big 4 “black” eyes from the US made their showing. I was kind of surprised that Camden, Oakland, or Chicago didn’t make the list too.

  5. My time in Rio ensured I’d never visit again. I’m sure I commented on it before, but the entire city is capsulated in the photo you posted. They have intractable poverty right next to wealthy areas. So my friends for instance could afford a nice bike. Yet, they would never buy one for fear that riding it would ensure they were violently robbed.

    That in sum is my experience of Brazil and what the U.S. elites aspire to: All the wealth in the world, but no place to spend it.

    Now Chile on the other hand is quite a bit better. Santiago is a nice city and at least as safe as any major city in the U.S. However, they had a little General in the 70s that was very generous with helicopter rides and leftists. His policy compromise with the left I suspect started at either 1,000 ft. or 2,000 ft. above the ground with some wiggle room for negotiation on whether they wanted a water landing or not.

    Haven’t been to Syria. Know Syrians. And that is Syria, to a tee. They told me they never saw it coming.

  9. I know some who have traveled there, all spoke the language. I speak only English, but that was of little convenience when visiting certain districts in England. I understand that kidnapping is lucrative in some of the livelier urban neighborhoods. Those merry-makers from North of the equator will be apprised of this fact by their most competent and trustworthy government, no doubt. The Brazilians are doing their part by warning of cash deficits, infrastructure collapses, in advance of the “games”.

  10. I have personally known a couple of bright young liberals who moved to the other side of the political aisle specifically because they became sickened at left-wing hypocrisy regarding the retrograde mores of barbaric third-worlders (particularly the devotees of a certain soi-disant prophet from seventh century Arabia). Quite fond of flirting with comely young ladies, they didn’t want to live in a society where pretty gals avoid the city streets after dark, or where attractive faces are constantly concealed behind jet-black cloth. Unfortunately, I think they were at least two standard deviations more intelligent than the average SJW.
