Do not give up your freedoms

by | Jul 9, 2020 | Uncategorized | 5 comments

It is fashionable, especially of late, among the intelligentsia and the mainstream whorenalist classes to run down the USA as the most racist and awful country in the world. They maintain that the past history and present state of the USA in particular, and of Western civilisation in general, is one of oppression, slavery, racism, colonialism, murder, rape, genocide, hatred of non-whites, and general awfulness.

These people never try to propose alternatives, of course – that isn’t the point. If you try to point out to these idiots, as politely as possible, that if they don’t like it in the USA or the UK or Canada or Australia or wherever, then they can go to the very Dirt World shitholes that they wring their hands over so much and want to help so badly, you will inevitably be met with a derisive snort and a rapid change of the subject.

This, too, is deliberate. The people who make these characterisations about the West don’t want to improve things. They just want to tear down the West – because they imagine that they can then set men free from the very rules and trappings that Western civilisation has imposed upon them.

It’s always the same story, every single time. It’s a story that goes back to the second-oldest story in the book, the one that involves the sentence:

“And ye shall be as gods”.

The goal of these people is to tear down the West and reshape it. They do not want to solve the problems of systemic racism – they ARE the racists, since they see every single issue through the lens of race and not of individual or societal traits. And of course, in that world where everyone is theoretically “free”, they would be the “enlightened” ones in charge.

What would such a world look like, you might wonder?

Actually, you don’t have to. It already exists.

It’s called “the People’s Republic of China”, and it is one of the most repressive, oppressive, racist, and freedom-hating countries anywhere in the world.

The thing is, that isn’t because of the Chinese people themselves. They have a number of unpleasant racial characteristics that are nearly universal – their ability to lie with a completely straight face in order to avoid any kind of embarrassment to themselves or their superiors is one of them. I’ve been on the receiving end of that numerous times and I’m heartily sick of it.

But Chinese people in general are not too bad a bunch. They are capable of creating and living in multi-racial, multi-ethnic societies where people can coexist harmoniosly, within limits. They are capable of creating vibrant democratic and republican institutions. They are capable of being… well, everything that Communist China is not. All you have to do is look at the way things used to be in Hong Kong, or the way things are in Singapore and Taiwan.

There are, to repeat, plenty of problems with the Chinese people. They tend to love authoritarian thinking and have few problems with the exact same ossified modes of Confucian thought that led to cultural and economic stagnation for centuries in their homeland in the past, and they tend to bring those tendencies with them wherever they go.

But overall, the Chinese people themselves aren’t the problem. Their government is.

You don’t have to take my word for it. Listen to the words of a man who went to China from the USA, lived there, met his wife there, had a child, and eventually fled to the USA.

The YouTuber known as laowhy86 or C-Milk is in real life a rather affable chap named Matthew Tye. He spent over 10 years in China and has a Chinese wife and two half-Chinese children. He now lives quite happily and freely in the USA. And it is because he lived in China and saw how rapidly it changed and devolved over 10 years that he is deeply, intensely grateful for the fact that he gets to live in the USA.

He started out really liking China, just as many foreigners did back during the boom years. These days, however, his opinion is rather different, and he explains exactly why:

That is the future that you Americans and other Westerners are looking at if you give up your freedoms.

It’s not just your freedoms that you give up, either. The West is successful because many (not all) of the nations within it are high-trust, high-performance cultures. China, on the other hand, is a low-trust, high-performance culture. And that leads to some seriously perverse incentives and outcomes, as Matthew’s good friend and fellow China afficionado Winston the Sefrican points out:

Part of that low-trust nature of Chinese society is cultural. But a BIG part of it is due to the way that the one-party rule of the Communist Party, which is basically an entity unto itself there, has no problems with trampling roughshod over the “rights” of its citizens.

That is because those rights are dispensations of the government, not rights held back by the people and away from the government.

In China, the people are beholden to the government. In the West, it is the exact opposite.

Now, yes, I know, over the last couple of decades, Western governments have become increasingly authoritarian and globalist and no longer really care what the people think. They are becoming ever more like the CCP and there is little to distinguish most of these government systems from the Communist system in China.

That’s where you come in.

If you voluntarily surrender your freedoms in the name of fancy pants and lollipops, then do not be surprised when you find yourself waking up one day and wondering why the government is breaking down your door to take you away from your family on the basis of nonsensical charges.

You might be pissed off and unhappy about how shitty your government is in the USA or the UK or Spain or France or wherever. You may decide that you’d be better off somewhere else.

Well, where are you going to go?

The hard reality is that most of you will not have the option to go somewhere else, somewhere better, very easily. Your roots, your family, your tribe, is around you now.

Some of you might have the ability to move and leave and do other things. But you’ll probably end up doing that within your own country. That is no bad thing.

If you’re like me, and you have little of anything in common with the people of the country of your birth, then you’ll be forced to decide where your loyalties will lie. It will be a very unpleasant and difficult process. You’ll simply have to deal with it.

In the end, your tribe, your people, and the freedoms that you hold dear in the West, are all you have. The rest of the world is not going to be much of an option for you.

China is not an option. They don’t like foreigners there and the CCP is really cracking down on them.

Russia might be, but the language and culture barriers are daunting. Trust me on this one. I’ve lived in Moscow for a total of almost a year and I can just about get by in Russian, and I find Russia a serious challenge.

India? HA! Forget it. The Indian government is getting stupider and their culture more xenophobic with every passing day. And, if you happen to like conveniences such as indoor plumbing, streets that are free of literal cattle-grids and cow-shit, and not being sucked dry by mosquitoes every night (and day), then honestly, India ain’t for you.

You could do what our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Voxemort the Malevolent did, over 20 years ago, and move to Italy. Or you could do what my friend Kyle Trouble did and move to Ukraine. Both are doing quite well for themselves.

But the option for Americans to escape en masse has largely closed. The Europeans are fed to the back teeth with loud, obnoxious American tourists coming over there to wreck their tranquil and quaint villages, and they really aren’t overly fond of being required to speak English to people who can’t be arsed to learn the local language.

There are other places in the world where outsiders are relatively welcome. Argentina is one. Bali in Indonesia is another. Other parts of Central and South America might be worth looking at. No matter where you want to go, though, you will be the alien, you will be the outsider, you will be “the other”, and you will have to adapt to them.

They will not adapt to you the way that you have been forced to do for decades when they come over to your country. They don’t want to. Nor should they. You’re in their house.

You made a huge mistake in letting hordes of people into your country who looked and acted nothing like you. And now you are paying a dreadful price for the mistakes of your forebears.

But in the end, when it comes to a country like America, the country that the presstitutes and whorenalists and lying shills of the never-to-be-sufficiently-cursed (((media))) would like you to believe is the most sinful and racist on the planet, the wisdom of one St. Ronald Magnus of the Right speak through the decades and resonate loudly today:

Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are? I had someplace to escape to.” And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.

Do not give up your freedoms. Not now, not to anyone, not EVER.

Where, after all, are you going to go, in the end?

    For the Americans considering leaving the US:

    My wife and I emigrated from the US a number of years ago. We moved to Eastern Europe where it’s quite nice, they have a down-to-earth, friendly homogeneous society. It’s really great; but it’s not our home. It’s theirs. The other Americans both here and in other European countries tend to be shitlib lefties who whine and complain about the US, but in the very next breath start pontificating to the locals how they should run things to be more like the US, like a bunch of damned Mexicans. The feminists bitch about the femininity of the local women and their traditions. Unfortunately, it’s starting to show some visible effects.

    You can move here and turn back the societal clock a bit – dial it back to a modified 1950s. You will have to learn the language. It’s fun at first but then when you have to solve more complicated problems, you are opening yourself up to being misunderstood and everything takes more time and resources because of the language barrier no matter who speaks whose language. If you want to integrate (which you will never fully do because you aren’t them), you will have to learn some of the customs. That’s fun at first too, but eventually you start to feel the differences because it’s not what we do at Christmas, Easter, etc. There is no Memorial Day or Thanksgiving. Independence Day happens multiple times per year depending on which era of history you’re talking about, but not on July 4 – no beer, boats, or fireworks. Maybe you can watch your family do that over Skype, while they still can. You are going to give up your familiar annual hunting trips. Hunting is Olde World here. No Mossy Oak, no state or federal land or hunting on your own private property, but in a hunting society where the leader dictates who gets to shoot and when. If you shoot the trophy animal, you don’t get to take it home. Fishing is different too. Wanna talk about guns? Sure, other places may be worse than here, but it’s still a far cry from the glories of even the tattered remnants of the Second Amendment in the US.

    So many Americans talk about packing up and leaving for greener pastures. My wife and I made it out a long time ago. But as the time to defend our home quickly approaches there is a growing feeling in the gut that continuing to stay away is straight up cowardice. Leaving the US now is yellow. Are these guys going to move back to the US after someone else straightens it out? Are they going to sit back and relax in their new country with popcorn, disarmed, while grandma or their brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, literal blood who stayed behind, get necklaced, disemboweled, or God knows what else by BLMGBTQANTIFA2++? Other countries might look nicer or even be nicer than the US, but it gets to be a little like visiting someone else whose house looks nicer than yours. In the end, it’s not your house. You may not be overstaying your welcome, but you do eventually get to the point that it’s time to go home for the evening or to take care of business. I don’t expect anyone to care what some random asshole on the internet thinks, but I couldn’t abide staying overseas and watching my homeland and family burn from afar without doing anything to try to stop it. Sack up, gun up, grow a freaking spine and stay to defend our home, fags. It’s time to clean house. Everyone has to go back.

      Amen, Reverend. Every single word you wrote in that comment is absolute truth.

      We moved to Eastern Europe where it’s quite nice, they have a down-to-earth, friendly homogeneous society.

      I've found the same with living in Russia.

      it’s not our home. It’s theirs.

      Correct. No matter how well I speak Russian (which is not that well) I will never be one of them. And I don't ever pretend otherwise.

      Unfortunately, it’s starting to show some visible effects.

      It's really starting to show with the younger generations of women in Moscow – under the age of 30 or so. Lots of them are showing up with plenty of ink and tattoos. Old-school gym trainers talk about how over the past five years they've seen the men become more feminised and the women become more masculinised. I've seen it for myself during my trips there.

      If you want to integrate (which you will never fully do because you aren’t them), you will have to learn some of the customs.

      Yeah and that can be very challenging. Female expectations of male behaviour are indeed from about the 1950s, which means any man who isn't at least somewhat handy with a wrench and screwdriver and hammer isn't going to get much respect. It's a very different world, which is great in some ways and terrible in others.

      Sack up, gun up, grow a freaking spine and stay to defend our home, fags. It’s time to clean house. Everyone has to go back.

      Couldn't have said it better myself.

    "And ye shall be as gods".

    King James Version does this verse better than the others. They often say you be like God. I think saying that line is more impact since it reminds me more of the human becoming gods like that of ancient Greece over the God of the Bible. To me is how human with great powers more likely to act over Jesus Christ.

    • Didact

      I like the KJV a lot. Its language is quite archaic and some of its translations about dragons and strange creatures are a bit fanciful – though expected for the time, given what the scholars had to work with – but overall I think it preserves the beauty and complexity of the ideas contained within the Bible better than anything else I've seen. There are issues with the translation – the Sixth Commandment translated as "Thou shalt not kill" made perfect sense back then, but does not today given the full context of that line, and there is an issue with the way that God's curse on Eve is translated as well. But overall, it's a great version.

      The saying about being as gods is basically a warning to men not to attempt to act in an all-powerful way. It states that knowledge is power – and power corrupts.

      A lot of people find the Bible to be very boring to read because they think it's overly long-winded. In fact, the astonishing thing about Biblical wisdom is that it is so compact. The profundities of the text are amazing once you start looking at them carefully.

    "Part of that low-trust nature of Chinese society is cultural."

    Thanks to The Pandemic, this has now been imported into Western societies …

    Think of it this way: if The Government In Control has the ability to order your business closed for "pandemic reasons" or any other reasons, during which you are expected to tread water indefinitely as if you've been cast adrift from your vessel on the high seas, then any fundamental trust of "business as usual" ceases.

    The only meaningful Chinese value for export purposes represents a nullification of existing arrangements for the benefit of the power structures themselves, and everything else consists of an economic or social residue.

    This is how America can now have an actual People's Republic of California in the making as well as a People's Republic of Washington, a People's Republic of Colorado, a People's Republic of New York, and so on.

    Keep in mind: people are fashioned to become ripe for socialism if they are denied the means to acquire capital.

    But on a related note, are the videos from earlier in 2020 of people passing out or passed out on the streets of Chinese cities "realfakes" meant to scare other countries into importing this particular Chinese value to the detriment of their people and economies?

    When you see the pattern, you realise how much subsequent actions continue to fit the pattern.

    My take on Hong Kong is very much different than that of Our COVID-19 Blessed PM Boris Johnson: these people and their ancestors had the ability to flee Hong Kong and the PRC over two decades ago, but they decided they wanted to play a continuing game of Gambler's Ruin.

    Tough shit, Hong Kong. You had an opportunity and failed to take it. Fight your own battles and reform your own country before expecting a bailout from any of ours.

    What the United Kingdom did for Montserrat should never be done for what's left of Hong Kong. The reasons why should be entirely obvious.

    As for Americans fleeing en masse to some other More Perfect Union, think of this as Ricardian theory turned upside down: now the only places left to go to are the ones that present fewer obstacles to acquiring capital and maintaining a standard of living, rather than the ones that fit best according to a range of aesthetic principles.

    Today there are no competitive advantages to be had in accepting mass migration from anywhere, but instead in accepting those who have mankind's better gifts as well as the means by capital.

    All of the remaining major frontiers left are off Earth, and the technology hasn't improved yet to the point where even low-scale migration is a feasible prospect.

    Eventually all of the industrial and post-industrial economies realise that there is no longer a benefit in "skills-linked immigration", especially in a future where corporations have become multi-national in part so they may evade the business, employment, and immigration laws of certain countries.

    "Where, after all, are you going to go, in the end?"

    Presently I have three choices where I hold citizenship, and I remain in the least worst of them, but given the contra-Ricardian choices, there are some interesting alternatives for the future.

    At some point you realise that what you're getting away from isn't The Government In Control, but instead diverse and specific groups of people because of what they've allowed to come into being.

    Or to echo Sartre: Hell is other people.
