In his latest essay, Takuan Seiyo weighs in on Andreas Malm, Tor Bach, Klassekampen, NRK, and the demographic makeup of Gates of Vienna readers (see previous posts here, here, and here). Using these issues as his starting point, he extends the topic to take in the Progressive ascendancy and the resulting suicide of the West.
Prokophy is Destiny
by Takuan Seiyo
Gates of Vienna recently published two articles about the Norwegian state broadcaster’s (NRK) risible construction of the demographic and psychographic profile of readers of counterjihad blogs. The second of GoV’s articles (with link to the first) was entitled “Demography is Destiny”.
I propose that NRK’s article has nothing to do with demography, however great the number of socio-economic-attitudinal variables it has thrown into the Marxi-mixer to come up with a profile of antijihad sympathizers. The assorted tags include: men, over-65, primary-school education, childless, unemployed, homebound, lonely, obsessive, distrusting society and democratic principles, angry, frustrated etc.
Prokophy is as much a determinant of national destiny as Demography is. In fact, in the postmodern era it is Prokophy that determines demography itself.
Prokophy — a term I made up from Old Greek for “progress,” prokope — is sinking the Western peoples’ boat: civilization, 15,000 years of history, gene pool, eventually physical existence itself, as surely as if the inmates of a lunatic asylum transported in a ship’s hold broke out and took over the captain’s chair, steering wheel, navigation and radio.
Whatever the Progressive Left says about anyone or anything that is an active opponent to the Great March of Progress has little do with facts. Dealing with it on a factual basis plays only to one’s own gallery. Farther gone than Humpty Dumpty, not only words mean what Progressives want them to mean, but facts are shape-shifting hedgehogs to be rolled around the lawn of “discourse” to suit the Great Plan etched on every Progressive brain. It’s strictly a Plato’s cave game.
This started as a clever tactical maneuver by the early Bolsheviks and continued through the lifespan of the Comintern. But the heirs to the Comintern — and few are more so than ex-Socialist International Norwegian poobahs like Jens Stoltenberg, Thorbjorn Jagland and Gro Harlem Brundtland — are not nearly so clever. They and their Progressive brethren across the West are simply mad. I call them “Body Snatchers” because, just as in the eponymous film, their brains have been infiltrated by some alien virus . They are constitutionally unable to perceive reality, which is pretty much the clinical definition of a psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia. Lenin and his associates, on the other hand, were shrewd appraisers of reality who were lying and distorting it for tactical purposes.
Naturally, Progressives call themselves “the reality-based community,” but it’s no different from the Napoleon Bonaparte you meet in most any asylum. He is convinced that you are the mad one because you fail to perceive his obviously Napoleonic self. Furthermore, you add insult to injury by not addressing him as His Imperial and Royal Majesty.
NRK, the Norwegian state broadcaster, is an active organ of the Progressive Multiculti-Socialist Left, just as Sweden’s SVT or Britain’s BBC are, and on the left side of the pond, PBS in the US and CBC in Canada. As the Progressive spongiform encephalitis virus requires a colder climate, higher GNP and a blonder people to thrive, in the warmer zones of Europe it’s a little different: there, state broadcasters like RAI in Italy, ERT in Greece, RTP in Portugal, TVE in Spain are tools of hard-line socialists and communists. Commercial broadcast networks and satellite news/chat channels bring up the rear in this zombie battle formation, worldwide .
All the characteristics ascribed by NRK’s scribes to GoV readers should therefore not be taken for factual allegations or even probabilistic statements based on professionally conducted polling. They are a fog of sputum droplets sprayed by mentally handicapped people in an automatic reptilian brain reflex action that has bypassed the rational mind completely.
It is our misfortune that the MSM, particularly the broadcast media, are the most powerful atomizer for such nebulous mists yet in history. Universities, and other brain-altering institutions that replaced church and grandpa, are also in that category. But they are not alone.
The cloud of Progressive madness smothers the West like a wet blanket from Berlin to Bordeaux to Birmingham to Boston to Berkeley to Brisbane: a swath of the globe roughly 13,000 miles (22,000 km) long, traversing the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It is a phenomenon on such a scale, and its unfolding consequences are of such lasting impact, that historians of the civilization that inherits ours, except if it be Islam where all reality-based intellectual endeavors halted 1000 years ago, will be arguing about it 100,000 years from now.
One could do nothing all day, every day, but collate astonishingly lunatic utterances made in 20 Western languages by Progressive heads of state and government ministers, media personalities and other celebrities, journalists and professors, and many important opportunists in the corporate world, the military, etc. who bolster the utopian juggernaut to further their own careers. The feeble-minded zillions, particularly the impressionable young, shimmy to this tune as though compelled by electrodes implanted in their frontal lobes.
The Pods from Space rule everything. You dance their jig, or you don’t dance at all. Blogs such as GoV and the writers who write for such blogs, and their readership, have lifted a small corner of the global blanket to reveal a slice of Reality. That makes them into the Winston Smiths of Prokopia, the land of Beautiful Progress, where any negative truth spoken about a non-Christian religion, a non-white race, a non-Western nationality, a non-taqiyyah version of Islam, a non-male gender, a non-heterosexual orientation, a non-deconstructionist Whitey Bad version of world history, a non-AGW theory of Climate Change, is assiduously logged, and its origins pursued and smothered.
If you bounce the Islam taboo of Prokopia you get what NRK has just dished out to Gates of Vienna and its readers, as well as to those of other counterjihad blogs. But that’s the lightest sanction. You may be hauled to court as happened to Islam offenders from Brigitte Bardot to Oriana Fallaci to Geert Wilders to Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, or you are summoned before a tribunal like Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant, or you are fired from your job as happened to Jean-Claude Barreau already in 1991, to Thilo Sarrazin and to countless others, or you become an Enemy of the People as happened unofficially to Bruce Bawer, and semi-officially to Fjordman. The depth of depravity of the demented Progressive state is such that the Norwegian establishment has practically excommunicated and expelled Peder Jensen, a valuable, brilliant, native Norwegian from his homeland.
Islamization opponents who get exercised over NRK’s defining them as senile, unemployed dunces, should remember that the same NRK went as far as to sacrifice a holy cow, the disabled, in order to bolster the holier cow of Islamization. It did so by portraying Fjordman in a TV show as Heine Fjordland, a quadriplegic, retarded Nazi.
But it’s not Fjordman who is a retarded, handicapped Nazi. It’s Norway that is. One who objects to this statement — surely the Norwegian people have come to despise their Nazi-collaborationist past and are fanatical peaceniks and “anti-fascists” — does not know either his quantum physics or his Oriental cosmology. For at its extreme, a phenomenon becomes its anti-phenomenon.
40,000 Norwegians, 15% of Oslo’s population, gathered recently to sing “Children of the Rainbow” from their cherished Kumbaya songbook. The venue was Young’s Square, the beating heart of Norway’s Soft Bolshevik, flanked by the headquarters of the Norwegian Labor Party, Liberal Party, and Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions.
This is the same Young’s Square where on Nov.19, 2010, during a Boycott Israel rally
100 Red youths attacked two Israeli girls selling cosmetics at a stand. The same square where the cuddly Rainbow is regularly expressed in massive Israel-hate rallies, demonstrations of solidarity with the non-Jewish victims of the Middle East war, and other Down-with-the-Jews events of heartwarming rainbow catholicity. Even the Hirden, Norway’s equivalent of the Nazi SA, did not do this.
Vidkun Quisling inspecting a Hirden lineup 
In Sweden, reports the Danish blogger Joern Pallensen, the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO) has just initiated an ambitious project to train 150,000 of its members in monitoring suspected racists at work. “Anyone reported for criticism of immigration policies risks being excluded from a number of LO-affiliated trade unions. This giant committee for the promotion of virtue, with its 150,000
Scandinavia is an extreme case. Its gratuitous self-destruction will be of great interest to paleontologists of the distant future. But the rest of the West is not far behind. Consider this recent French video entitled “All France”:
Look at the mélange of young, vigorous, semi-barbarians “of color,” vested and accessorized in a transgressive Identity wardrobe, doing gangbanger gesticulation and Afro-soul crooning, all that interspersed with white ghost crones, white Halloween hags, white post-menopausal flabby men, white diabetic invalids, white faux-Cherokee artistes preening to their own mediocrity, white little indoctrinated children doing a French equivalent of “Obama Shall Lead Us,” and, of course, white Media, Arts and Literature Snatchers doing their snatching. All asserting that this is France. It’s enough to haunt your dreams, along with that vulgar hip-hop-or-sump’n music laid under it all.
That is what France has become, and if you dissent, e.g. by voting Front National, you are a “fascist” or, as NRK’s savants would have put it, an over-65, semi-literate man, childless, unemployed, lonely, hateful, obsessive and “anti-democratic.”
Eva Joly, a Green Pod (double entendre) Presidential candidate in the French elections and a Norwegian (naturellement) expat, addressed the candidate of the “Party of Hate,” Marine Le Pen in these words :
“We are at home, we the French men and women, and wogs come from four corners of the world to make France. We the mixed-breeds and the immigrants who work in construction sites, we breaking our backs erecting buildings, we are at home. We are at home, we the Bretons, the Corsicans, the Southerners [Provence], the Dagos and the Spics, we the kikes, the Negroes, the North African towelheads, and we the menopausal Norwegians. We are the freedom to love, the equality before the law, the fraternity. We are at home.”
What can one say of such a stream of insanity, a string of emotional trigger words that Reality prohibits from tossing into the same bucket of hyperbole? After all, Joly is the same menopausal NordoPod who proposed to replace the traditional Fourteenth of July military parade on the Champs-Élysées with a “citizens’ march.”
May one point out that Bretagne and Provence are parts of France but Albania and Ivory Coast are not? That the organic connection between the peoples and cultures of France and the adjacent Iberian and Italian peninsulas goes back to the dawn of history? That the Bourbons who were kings of France are now kings of Spain? That Italian de Medicis sat on the throne of France and Italians sit to this day on the throne of Monaco? That Napoleon was Corsican? That the people of northern France are of Norwegian stock but no part of France has ever been of Senegalese stock? That descendants of a French general now sit on the throne of Norway’s eastern neighbor? That Henri d’Anjou was King of Poland before he was King of France? That French notables from Napoleon to Balzac had Polish paramours and wives, as did the French father of Frederic Chopin and French husband of Marie Sklodowska (Curie)? That Poland’s King Jan Sobieski (he of Vienna) had a French wife? That Jews in France go back 2000 years and comprise illustrious names from early 16th century’s Nostradamus and Michel de Montaigne to 19th/ 20th centuries’ Pissarro, Modigliani, Chagall, Offenbach, Sarah Bernhard, Marcel Proust, André Maurois, industrial giants like Citroën and Dassault, mathematical geniuses like Benoit Mandelbrot and even church dignitaries like Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger? What do millions of subliterate, hostile, organically unassimilable African Muslims sluiced to France by venal politicians beginning in the last third of the 20th century against the wishes of the French people have to do with those other nationalities?
The Grand Intellectual Face of France, BHL, he of the big tan, big hair, big inheritance and big reputation that, like US Presidents’, allows for getting by with an acronym handle alone, said recently about Front National, France’s last and only hope before the curtain descends: “The political combat against FN has to harden. It’s a struggle unto death. I repeat, death.”
Struggle unto death it is indeed. But only one side in this struggle knows it. And it’s not the side that faces death.
This is France in which Socialists and Communists, Camp-of-the-Saints Thirdworlders, violent Muslim thugs, militant homos, feminazis, the ugly, the moral duds, the spiritually arid, the slackers , the failures and the pretend-intellectuals have banded together to bring down their host. Currently, they are carrying a Roberto Benigni lookalike (plus 60 lbs., minus comedic talent) socialist schnook to the Élysée Palace, but anyone could be carried on this frothy wave who would become its spokesperson.
What can one say of Chris Matthews, of MSNBC, who has just compared B. Hussein Obama to Henry V in the context of BHO’s campaigning for the 2012 Presidential office, after having confessed to a tingling in his leg as he was listening to BHO’s honeyed prose in the 2008 presidential campaign? Obama, remember, is the man who upon taking office in the White House dumped the bust of Winston Churchill back onto British shores, so dislikeable the second Henry V was to the metrosexual ward of Saul Alinsky, Jeremiah Wright, and the Weathermen.
Those are men from another space/time dimension, the Progressive Parallel Universe. And since they and their allies of the same persuasion control the destiny of the crumbling West, what does it portend for the future of Western Civilization when warning voices are systematically silenced? Of course, the control is slipping; things are increasingly tumbling on their own toward their inevitable conclusion.
People who run afoul of the Progressive paradigm in matters other than Islam or Third World immigration suffer punishments just as severe and lunatically disconnected from Reality’s compass as the Islam-resisters do. The United States is experiencing an unprecedented spike in violent hate crimes by blacks against whites, unspeakably heinous murders of whites and North Asians by blacks in the course of muggings and other forms of robbery, rape of white women by black men, murder of white women by their black boyfriends, black group beatings administered to individual white men or women, savage rampages by blacks for trifles such as lukewarm fries at MacDonald’s, armed assault, mass lootings of stores by dozens of “youths” at a time, and so on.
All that is taboo (and even more so in Europe). Police spokesmen and public prosecutors routinely obscure the racial angle of the crimes — but never so in white-on-black crimes. With rare exceptions, the MSM refuse to name the race of perps and victims in accounts of the crimes. The Zimmerman-Trayvon saga could yield a dozen original Ph.D. dissertations  on media manipulation of facts, tampering with audio and video recordings and photos, prejudicial opinionating disconnected from the facts of the case — all following the prepackaged Progressive script in a stampede trampling basic journalism ethics, integrity, honesty and, ultimately, the rules of societal survival itself. For a society with such media wades blindfolded through the current of history.
As this is being typed, a Drudge headline pops on my screen: 100 black teens beat white couple in Norfolk….media bury attack. But for how long will the Snatchers running things allow Drudge to operate before he too suffers a heart attack? A Republican president will not change anything, for Republicans are cowards, playing ball happily on a field in which the Left has been shifting the goalposts leftward for 50 years now without interruption.
John Derbyshire, a mild-mannered, scholarly WASP immigrant with a Chinese immigrant wife, focuses in his polemical writings on the empirical, i.e. reality-based, issues related to culture, race, gender and related social phenomena. One of the few original thinkers at the “conservative” National Review, he was fired recently for having written an honest essay discussing white parents’ dilemmas with black crime. He was pilloried not merely by the Progressive Left but by all the editors and major contributors of NR plus various other prominent “conservatives.” It’s difficult to know whether they are blind and stupid, or was it careerism mingled with cowardice. Derbyshire, now in his 60s, suffering from cancer and with a wife and two children to support, is now out in the cold. Sic semper veritas in Prokopia.
Before Derbyshire, Sam Francis had been handed the fateful pink slip. A brilliant and prescient intellectual (no derision quote marks), Dr. Francis was the first to articulate for intelligent non-Nazizoid Americans the Rivers-of-Blood direction that the United States was pursuing, after it had been identified and named for Great Britain by an equally brilliant intellectual, Enoch Powell, in 1968. Working as a columnist for the Washington Times, Francis was “outed” by a weasel conservative, Dinesh d’Souza, for having given a speech at the 1994 American Renaissance conference “in the spirit of white bigotry” . For that, Francis was fired in 1995 by WT’s chief editor, Wesley Pruden.
Sam Francis died in pain and penury in 2005, at 57, having been unable to make a living all those years. D’Souza and Pruden remain as conservative (and well-greased) beacons, misleading the unwary onto the final shoals of the West’s once-splendid voyage.
No black man advocating genocide of whites (try this and this, and this “Hispanic” version, among others) has suffered repercussions of the sort Derbyshire and Francis have, even though neither white man has expressed any hostile intent toward blacks and both have voiced their analysis of the racial reality in America in fair, polite and non-threatening ways (as does American Renaissance’s Jared Taylor, a truly proper gentleman, heckled and manhandled by hate-crazed, foaming white Pods across the continent).
Prokopian maligning and persecution of the true Reality Community — specifically of thoughtful whites of Christian heritage who have managed to scrape the scales off their eyes, knows no bounds.
Consider the case of bumboy (I use the word with aforethought) Dan Savage. A denizen of Seattle, he has a long-running homo-sex advice column in a local paper, The Stranger, whose chief editor he is as well. The column revels in immersing its readers in the clinical details and pleasures of homo sex, and it mixes it with aggressive anti-conservative, anti-Christian politics. To gauge what this means, do an Internet search combining the terms Dan Savage and Santorum . This being a family-friendly blog I can’t quote it here, for it’s the most disgusting thing I have ever come across.
But Savage is more than a practitioner of homo-journalism in the city of rain, coffee and lefto-depravity. He has become a nationally-known media pundit courted and featured by such outlets as HBO, CNN, MSNBC, ABCNews.com and Salon.com. He is a featured speaker on university campuses across the United States. That gives him a major platform. For this:
Sent by Salon.com to cover a political event in Iowa, Savage was so angered by a conservative Republican politician Gary Bauer’s opposition to same-sex marriage that he volunteered for Bauer’s campaign. He spent his time there smearing his flu-infected saliva on any surface he thought Bauer might touch. Interviewed in 2006 by a student newspaper about political candidate Carl Romanelli, Savage stated that “Romanelli should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the rope”.
Interviewed in 2011 on HBO by another Lunatic-with-a-Platform, Bill Maher, he stated, “I wish the Republicans were all f***ing dead.”
But the issue is not Dan Savage. The issue is that the Snatcher establishment continues acting as though none of this happened. After all of the above and more, Savage was invited by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association to deliver a speech at the National High School Journalism Conference. On anti-bullying.
He turned that speech into an aggressive attack on the Bible, replete with multiple profanities, and into a promo for pleasures of proctological interest, with lascivious comments about his husband. 100 offended high school students walked out.
What were the Journalism Education Association (JEA) thinking? Why bring a militant homo to insult already meek and forgiving Christian highschoolers when reality shouts it's Muslims who need a Dan Savage lecture about toleration of sexual deviancy?
The issue is the obsequious fawning and courting of gays by the White House and by the entire political leadership of the West, and by all Western MSM, and by the Progressive zombie corps commanded by the above and following in endless columns stretching for 13,000 miles. And it has nothing necessarily to do with the Bible.
I, though a student and lover of the Bible, don’t like religious fundamentalism, have criticized American theocons in print, and am not a fan of Rick Santorum. But the simple truth is that to a sexually normal person, i.e. something between 99% and 95% of the non-Muslim world’s population , buggery is physically repulsive. The provocative physical appearance of many gays causes an instinctive revulsion too.
Why is the ruling regime of Prokopia, i.e. the entire Western World, exalting, protecting, and promoting aggressive spokesmen for this particular deviation? Why do Christians feel constrained from responding aggressively to bum punks like Savage, but Muslim immigrants in the West do not feel so constrained?
Homosexuals should not suffer discrimination or persecution any more than the deaf and mute should. But the majority has the right to protect itself and its children’s brains from being rubbed in what is, to them, physical filth. It has the right to protect Western society’s basic building block: heterosexual marriage and family formation in a reproductive situation of 1.3 — 1.5 children per woman instead of the 2.2 required for generational replacement. It’s just another symptom of Progressive madness that instead of focusing on increasing heterosexual procreation and family formation, they dote on homosexuals.
A disquisition about abuse and demonization of those who do not follow the Progressive Script would not be complete without a place of honor for the Green Green Pods from Space and their invective spilled on global warming skeptics.
“What has become of science?” wrote the science blog buythetruth.com when the lid exploded off the Climategate pot. “We thought that science was about the pursuit of truth. Then we became perplexed at how quickly scientists have prostituted themselves in the service of political agendas. We have seen the unedifying spectacle of scientists refusing to share their data, fiddling their results, and resorting to ad hominem attacks on those who have exposed their work to be fraudulent. We have seen the Royal Society becoming a shamelessly crude advocacy society… President Obama choosing notorious climate alarmists and liars to be his personal advisors… the peer review process and journal editors colluding to prevent publication of results that do not serve the politically-correct agenda … scientists refusing to consider results that demolish their pet theories. What is going on here? What is going on is that science is no longer what we thought it was. It is now a tool in the hands of socialists.”
Much cold wind from Nature and fanatical hot air from envirosocialists have manifested since then, but it’s just the related coercion and its motivation that interest us here. There was a recent “Planet Under Pressure” conference in London in which this professorette, Kari Norgaard from the University of Oregon, presented a paper the synopsis of which reads “Simultaneous action needed to break cultural inertia in climate-change response”.
To break? Notably, Professor Norgaard’s specialization areas include “gender and environment,” “race and environment,” and “environmental justice” . Not that she is alone in this, yet-another mutation of the Comintern. MIT Press, for instance, published a book in 2011 entitled “Cultivating Food Justice Race, Class, and Sustainability.”
A tweet by Anthony Giddens, another socialistologist at the “Under Pressure” conference, “Scientists need to renew an assault on climate sceptics,” resulted in a wave of enthusiasm among the zombie troops, expressed in messages like this one from greenactiongal: “Lord Giddens urges an assault on climate change skeptics! Let's go!”
Hockey stick, anyone? An extensive documentation of the fraud is widely available (e.g. here). So why this continuing beating of the AGW drum, the hysteria, the push by warmed-up freaks for purging “denier” weathermen, the persecution of academics who don’t bow to the AGW EnviroMoloch, the calls for burning down skeptics’ homes or putting them on trial on charge of “high crimes against humanity”; why the hyperbole that climate change is a moral issue on a par with slavery that requires (of course!) a global tax on carbon emissions, why Al Gore calling climate skepticism “the new racism”, why the calls for eco-terrorism by impacted pipsqueaks; why the restriction by BBC of AWG-skeptic news, and so on, every day in a massive, coordinated cacophony?
There are many environment-related problems in the world. Mega-corporations and their pol-pawns in Washington and elsewhere are not clean on this. The paving-over of the Eastern and Western coasts of the United States and of much of Western Europe (and Japan) is a tragedy. The shopping mall and box-store pockmarks on the landscape everywhere are a disgrace. Nature in all its components should be treated with greater respect. There are enormous quantities of pollution and environmental destruction going on, on a gigantic scale.
But the great majority of this destruction is not in the countries ruled by the enviro-freaks and their Snatcher backers . The countries — their own — that they wish to destroy economically after they have destroyed them demographically, morally and fiscally.
The pushing of this scheme by the Socialist-Communist-Green-Muslim alliance in Europe, and by their socialist allies in the United States like Al Gore, President Obama and his senior apparatchiks like global ecofascism advocate John Holdren and Marxist Afro-militant Van Jones, gives a clue. The fact that the same “Green” factions that parade their concerns for Nature, overdevelopment and overpopulation are also the promoters of the inundation of the same strained environment by unceasing streams of Thirdworlders, gives a clue.
The Obama U.S. Department of Homeland Security now has an Environmental Justice Strategy. Please read that sentence again.
Here is a larger clue: “The upcoming United Nations environmental conference on sustainable development will consider a breathtaking array of carbon taxes, transfers of trillions of dollars from wealthy countries to poor ones, and new spending programs to guarantee that populations around the world are protected from the effects of the very programs the world organization wants to implement,” reads a Fox News story about the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) coming up in June 2012. “The main goal [snip] is to make dramatic and enormously expensive changes in the way that the world does nearly everything — or, as one of the documents puts it, ‘a fundamental shift in the way we think and act.’"
Led by the Chicom head of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, just thewebsite (plus allied) of this conference alone impresses with the enormity and ambition of the enterprise. Honey words pour like always in clever confidence schemes: “green economy in the context of sustainable development … poverty eradication… promoting decent jobs….clean energy… sustainable… fair use of resources… advance social equity… ensure environmental protection.”
When you hear such Duckspeak, its time to bolt the door or escape to Fiji. For when you strip the tinfoil, what’s behind is a colossal social engineering scheme, taking from each according to his ability (i.e. from whitey and what remains of his domain) and redistributing it to each according to his need (i.e. failed Third World states, failed societies and retarded cultures, all socialist utopias-gone-sour). In other words, a Global Bolshevik Revolution, at long last, though in tailored suits and Roederer Cristal in crystal flutes. Indeed, some percentage of this planned river of trillions will be inevitably shunted off to a few Lichtenstein, Cyprus and Singapore bank accounts, plus there will be MBZs all around in the manner of Kojo Anan, Koffi’s son.
No wonder that a George Soros front, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, has just petitioned to have the Fox broadcast license revoked. A writer for that racist/fascist extreme right-wing broadcaster had rung the alarm bell on a planned souk where hundreds of participating governments, NGOs, corporations andECOSOC — a curious rhyme with Ingsoc — along with thousands of participants will be haggling over the soon-to-be carcass of the West.
The likes of Shalupe Foundation (14 Av Lotoyi, no city, no country, no statement) or some front solar energy company will vie for Obama Money, and African Youth Organization (“make all African youths equally realized by nature of the call unite African politically,that as a people coming up-the true state of an African,globally” [sic]) will have a photo-op with Jens Stoltenberg and shower in the Norwegian taxpayer’s largesse.
This is the very eschaton, immanentized. The leopard will lie down with the baby goat. The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion. Gay men shall conceive, but female submariners will not. Multiplying government debt will eradicate government debt. Printing money will increase economic strength. A black president will usher the post-racial age. MIT will be black and NBA will be white. Somali and Aztec immigrants will rev up the engine of America’s industry and productivity on bedrock of renewed social capital. Turkey and Morocco will lead the EU to a new European Renaissance. Islam shall at last bring peace and tolerance to a riven world. A glorious glow of unity, peace, justice and equity shall at last infuse the entire globe. And a little Progressive child will lead them all.
And you wonder why you deserve the lies, the wrath, the spittle, the threats, the baiting, the beating, the persecution, the lawfare, the disfranchisement, the exile?

But I live out of a suitcase, in exile. My home, my life in California that I invested 30 years in building, are gone. That dear homeland of mine will not come back in my lifetime, if ever.
I want to finish my novel, but every day a peek at the news goes straight to my inner core with an admonition: ‘Tis no time for vainglorious pursuits; you must give witness, you must protest, though it’s not you who will bear the brunt of the destruction. So I sit down to one of my usual polemics, but then the life of an exile intervenes, and I have to do what life maintenance requires, and the writing has to go into a drawer.
Even the piece here is out of order. I am supposed to furnish the last chapter of “Bee and Lamb.” But B & L requires deep concentration, meditation almost, to come out. Since that has not been possible for me in the last 5 weeks, I do what I can in the meantime, as above.
I am, with all that, in a lucky situation. When I started writing just as the U.S. and the rest of the West were beginning to crumble financially, in 2006, I had already had a long, well rewarded professional career. We lived frugally. I don’t have to worry how we will pay the grocery bill tomorrow. We don’t have dependents. I don’t have to cool my heels in any publisher’s antechamber or Inbox. What Baron Bodissey and Dymphna have to go through, or Fjordman who is in exile too, and doesn’t have the cushion I have, is so much harder. Derbyshire too, who has posted photos of his children training at a rifle range, just in case.
But then, even my cushion is no longer floatable. I have to check every day how low the dollar and our stocks have sunk, and with them our net worth. I have to worry about the survivability of any financial institution that has a piece of us in one way or another. I have to deal with Bengali Customer Service for my computer problems, Panamanian help for my cellphone problems, and “Oprima el numero dos” and Affirmative Action nincompoops in every public or corporate office. I have to replace broken Made in China articles weeks after buying them, and call Repair to repair what the first repair failed to repair. I have to read the label before I feed my dog, lest I serve him melamine, and I have to hold the key bunch just so in my pocket when I take him for an evening walk.
I have to plan what we will do if SHTF happens. Do we have skills and goods to barter? Should I dust off my dog bonding talents or horse skills that may possibly put bread and milk on our table in an hour of need? And where? One of my books-in-progress is about my visits to various American cities in search of the one where we could settle and feel at home again. I have not found this city.
These are historic, incredible times. Walk through them with wide open eyes, for nothing like this has happened since the fall of Rome.
