Cracks in Babel

Did you hear it? That is the sound of globalist jenga blocks striking the deck. I am not one often susceptible to the siren of optimism, though the successful Brexit initiative is nearly enough to crack a grin. Because when a structure becomes unstable, the first block to fall is rarely the last.

Already sovereignty advocates in other European states are beginning to clamor for their own glimpse of sunlight. And the phenomenon is not limited to that continent. Fractious Texans are also chaffing under the bridle of distant lords. It may even be possible that the ambitions of petty Tyrants of the Bureau are equaled by the desire of common men to thwart them.

For European integration was only the Brexit vote’s exterior facade. The underlying structure was a referendum on the Liberal Order: mass immigration, demographic submersion, cultural petri-dishing, industrial offshoring, surveillance states, citizen disarming, and verbal duct-taping.

Of course turning an ancient organic nation into a multinational market segment has its own advocates. Businessmen and politicians find irresistible lucre in selling off their children’s inheritance. And I don’t use this formulation flippantly. For it is a precise description. Enormous human and cultural capital have accumulated in Europe over the centuries. It is analogous to the world’s most coveted and meticulously crafted family estate. One that has been the source of violent longing from outsiders since antiquity. That countless of our forefathers poured their blood into the soil defending it might even be considered reason enough to pause before giving it all away.

Because even the poorest man can take pride in passing his civilization from father to son. It’s value in social amenities alone being priceless. But that’s apparently too high a price to pass up. So the typical consortium has busied itself doing what no right was ever conferred to do: selling your stake for their enrichment. Whether there’s more than a handful of Brits who consciously understood the Brexit subtext, that was it.

And the problem brought to light in this vote may just be systemic. As it blights into global vastness, the progressive program has come into tension with certain elements of man’s nature–or at least that of Western man.

People fundamentally want to be governed by their own kind. By those who share a common history and aspirations for the future. They want leaders who will support and advance their way of life, not that of others. They want an advocate and a champion for their interests. No man hires an attorney who pledges to make the best possible case for his opposition.

Further, as the effects of scale grow untenable, citizens begin to yearn for leadership that is responsive to popular appeal, accountable for its failures, and thoroughly exposed to the fruits of its policies. None of which is remotely applicable to the star chamber of a super-state.

In simplest terms, every nation of people wants some ground specifically for themselves–and a government that isn’t trying to bury them in it. That’s why the first block fell last night. Did you hear it?

    This is great.

  2. Maybe someday we’ll be able to put a stake through the heart of the UN. Millennials would be shocked to know that ‘US out of the UN and UN out the US, was once an actual political position.

    • For hundreds of years stock markets have fluctuated up and down, collapsed and always recovered. Nothing new under the sun here, let’s not overreact. A few over leveraged traders being scrapped off the pavement are nothing compared to a civilized culture finally getting their country back.

  4. My cynicism towards those who zealously protect Our Values is such that I’ll believe the United Kingdom is exiting the European Union if and when it in fact happens. I’ll be mildly surprised if it actually ever does happen, as I’ve seen nothing in the past 50 years that would suggest the will of the people is of any importance to the Right Side of History.

    By the way, Porter, longtime reader, first time commenting. I very much enjoy the blog. Please keep up the good work, you vile bigot.

  5. Let’s return to some more rational pessimism. In this interview, a Tory MP assures his constituency that their screams will fall on well-plugged ears. Specifically: immigration won’t decline after Brexit, and whoever thought it would?

    A couple of points on this. One, obviously the Brexit vote was only a miniscule step in a very long march. Enormous national damage has been wrought in Britain, and its architects are little inclined to reflection on the matter. The immediate–and only–benefit of Brexit was to bring Britain’s rulers within range of her citizens. That proximity of government to the governed in no way implies the former will be willingly faithful to the latter. But it does mean government can be exposed to voter wrath–unlike faceless EU-crats.

    It is now entirely up to the British to decide what they will do about the traitors they have suffered to lead them. They used to have a BNP option, though apparently that was deemed too unseemly and so the Pakis kept rolling. At some point the British people (and of course all the West) will have to prioritize their own survival over issues of petty appearance or values.

    Which brings me to point two. If a people can’t be bothered to persist on their own, no one will force it upon them. Our task is to break down malign managerial bureaucracies to give the West’s many diverse peoples that option. If they choose a flattering eulogy over a future, then it is incumbent on others to wave goodbye and well-insulate themselves from the folly.

    Scotland and England represent an excellent example. As a general observation, the Scots seem most incensed that their castles remain bereft of Sudanese squatters. England should recognize this yearning, and unilaterally move to protect itself from the flails of an intentionally drowning people.

    I wouldn’t grant Scotland another independence referendum, I’d hold one in England on jettisoning their northern neighbor. And upon passage, build a fortified Anglo-Scottish border fence. Scots could then be at full liberty to shit on their children as the imperative moves them.

    That’s all you can truly ask: to grant a nation discretion over its future. If they are determined to make that future Zimbabwe, then they must know it is a course for themselves alone, and not the many others they would see submerged beside them.

    It’s well past time white liberals live in the societies they strive to create. And live there with none of us to spoil the occasion.

    • I suppose my point about cynicism reflects my fear that those who make their riches selling your children’s inheritance will not exactly move aside because of mere plebiscites. It’s rather like asking the robber in your house to leave, pretty please, and expecting him to drop your TV and calmly retrace his steps. Obviously credible threats of violence might be more persuasive than polite requests, whether you want to keep your TV or a space for your posterity.

      Said another perhaps another way, as you’ve pointed out before, where one side points to tanks and another side points to either aging documents in the National Archives, or something as apparently non-binding as a referendum, guess which side wins? And my understanding is that the British Parliament is full of those who: (a) prefer the EU; and (b) have tanks available on Line 1. I will be quite interested to see what actually does happen with the British vis-a-vis the European Union. Already I see Cameron has backtracked on invoking Article 50 of whatever convention governs membership into the EU. Various British papers warn of years of negotiations to actually implement the will of the people.

      More broadly, my fervent hope is that I am wrong, and referendums work, and violence will not be required to reclaim our lands. I hope this Brexit vote is as momentous as all that.

      • I don’t know what legal weight referenda carry in Britain. As you speculate, it’s difficult to imagine officialdom there would promptly cede the country’s fate to something so frivolous as the will of its people.

        Fortunately, we don’t face such quandaries here in America. The judiciary would simply declare the result unconstitutional and retire to resume contemplative booger extraction. Whether British courts or parliament are endowed with such latitude is unknown to me.

      • The referendum was non-binding.

        If Britain ever leaves the EU (without bloodshed), then everything I think I know about the global order is wrong.

        I do not know what sort of Talmudic rationale they will use, although it will surely be amusing… But I do know the final result, which is Britain remaining in the EU.

  6. Although I started the day blasting various versions of “Rule, Britannia!”, I’m under no illusion that the exterminator has yet begun to work. The Khan is unrepentant and says the door remains open. Hannen can usually be counted on to make big talkie noise, but he’s wafflin’, Jack Buckby seems to have the right frame-of-mind, but he’s got a tough climb. Jayda Fransen won’t take my calls…

  7. The EU collapse is looking very much like the former Soviet Union whereby the disintegration and collapse accelerated very quickly in the last two years. It’s the math of exponential just like duckweed in a pond that doubles every day. At first you don’t notice it, by the time you do it’s too late to stop.

    Self determination, freedom and stopping mass migration are just some of the benefits of disposing Brussels globalist noose. Let the domino’s fall.

  8. Economist Kenneth Saul Rogoff is quite displeased with the Brexit vote.

    He says the momentous nature of the decision required more than mere majority. In fact, it should have required two consecutive Exit referenda results as well as a supermajority vote in parliament. The reason?

    The greater and more lasting the decision, the higher the hurdles.

    Which is interesting given the remarkably low hurdles–no votes by any parties at any level–required to import a replacement population: a great and lasting decision, indeed.

    All of which makes me think the Saul Rogoffs of the world are facing far too low a hurdle to reside in Western countries.

    • It strikes me that, when dealing with the enemies of Western civilization, the answer is always “Heads we win, tails you lose.” I am an American of the worst sort, which is to say I’m only American insofar as my ancestors stole this land from the noble savages and persist in that wickedness through my resistance to turning over my lands to third world squatters.

      I set that out to explain that I personally am too busy oppressing non-whites to really keep up with the political situation in Britain, but I wonder if the British elites set up this EU referendum as sort of a blood and circuses distraction for the proles, never imagining the rubes out in the countryside would go for it?

    • “Which is interesting given the remarkably low hurdles–no votes by any parties at any level–required to import a replacement population: a great and lasting decision, indeed.”

      Indeed. It’s quite mind-boggling, really.

      • “Racism meaning a thing that does not subordinate white interests to those of people who despise them.”

        I have to steal this one.

        Every word a gem. Our enemies must have their brains knocked out by them.

    • “Just the irony that a country that colonized half of the freakin world is losing its shit about immigrants.”

  9. Porter, I had to revisit this thread after learning this week that some appellate court in Britain has discovered that Parliament must manage the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union. As we discussed above several months ago, officialdom in Great Britain is apparently totally nonplussed by something as mundane as the wishes of the majority of the British population. The robed priests have gazed deep into lost parchments to discern that, no, that is not who “we” are.

  10. Porter, I commented earlier and forgot to include the relevant information to identify myself. If this is duplicative, I apologize. I couldn’t reproduce that comment in toto, but I heard this past week that the appellate courts in Britain have decided that the referendum about leaving is not really all that binding, after all. As I feared, the ruling class over there isn’t going to let the UK leave quite so easily.

    • Yeah, it’s remarkably brazen. And precisely what I expect malign Western courts to continue doing until they are either ignored utterly or tossed into the gutters.

      By overtly issuing legislative edicts they delegitimize themselves as a judiciary.
