It’s starting

Getting some unexpected clicks from CH. This was not written with you in mind as the audience, and I am in no way a professional blogger. If you’re coming from over there you’ll probably prefer the practical applications, which are less crazy-sounding:

I’m calling it. In 2014, the year of our Lord, people are splitting into sides and whipping themselves into a lather for the big one. I only wish I could predict how long we have.

I wish I could organize my thoughts on the matter and actually make my case to you. It’s happening too fast, and here I’d thought we had a couple of decades. Maybe a couple of years instead, five or so? I know, I know, you look outside and see the same old weather.

Here’s why I’m calling it: War is a phenomenon that exists primarily in the minds of its primary agents. This is particularly true for ideological wars. It starts when both sides take up arms and ends when the winners put them down (or the two sides call a truce, but have you ever heard of such a thing in real life?).

Most people are not primary agents. We are swept away by currents we can never understand or hope to reverse.

In my voodoo parapsychological way, I can see the locker room preparations: Coaches and team captains are warming up their subordinates with speeches and chants. The snowball, the wave, the supercycle has crossed some point of no return.

The fascists in the Neanderhall, of which there are surprisingly many (fool that I am, I wasn’t paying adequate attention to posting rates), are discussing ideological suppression and plans for practical action. The leftists are becoming increasingly bold, perhaps going so far as knocking the Chateau off the internet. Publishers and authors, unable to coexist or even do commerce, have begun to break off into separate nations (see the blogs of Vox’s outstanding authors for that). Yeah, that’s the right word for it. Breaking into separate nations.

Roissy has made some noise about firing the rogue WordPress employee- John C. Wright said I’m supposed to remind you of Duck Dynasty, but that only happened a month ago anyway. Like I said, bolder.

Why must it come to excessive violence? It is the simple nature of nihilism. What we call leftism in modern America is nihilism with a coat of paint that’s all but chipped away. Dissent is not allowed in that ideology. Be a nihilist or be annihilated.

And with that said, there are only Christians and nihilists in the end. Fascism, conservatism, libertarianism, progressivism, pantheism- all gradations of the same thing. This world must one day end. No earthly ideology denies this. They rely on our short-sighted insistence to build up treasures on earth.

    No, the losers.

    >Why must it come to excessive violence?

    “The last Incarnation of Him-Who-comes-back-the last Man, “against Time” — has many names. Every great faith, every great culture, nay, every true (living or obsolete) form or a Tradition as old as the fall of man (and as the subsequent yearning for the lost earthly Paradise) has given Him one. Through the eyes of the Visionary of Pathmos, the Christians, behold in Him Christ “present for the second time”: no, longer a meek preacher of love and forgiveness, but the irresistible Leader of the celestial “white Horsemen” destined to put an end to this sinful world and to establish “a new Heaven and a new earth”; a new Time-cycle. The Mohammedan World is awaiting Him under the features of “the Mahdi,” Whom Allah shall send “at the end of times,” to crush all evil through the power of His sword — “after the Jews will once more have became the masters of Jerusalem” and “after the Devil will have taught men to set even the air they breathe, on fire.” On the other hand, in nearly every country of Europe, popular Tradition has greeted the One-Who-comes-back either in the form of a departed and returning King, or as the very Soul of a mythical, hidden Army: in Germany, as Emperor Frederic Barbarossa, who shall one day come out of the cave in which he has been asleep for centuries, and save his people, and lead them to unheard-of glory; in Denmark, as Holger Danske, of the Kronborg Mountain; in Poland, as the “Sleeping Host” of folk-tales; in Hungary, as “Attila,” who is, one day to re-appear at the head of “Csaba’s Army” and to work divine vengeance upon the wicked and to mete out justice; while the old solar religions of Central America pictured Him as the radiant white god Quetzalcohuatl, returning in glory and power — like the rising Sun — from beyond the Eastern Ocean. And the millions of Hindusthan have called Him”

    “The means cannot be foretold, for things will have changed, by then. Things are changing — and the science of war, progressing, — every day. One point is, however, as a main feature of every recurring “great End,” beyond doubt: “Kalki” will act with unprecedented ruthlessness. Contrarily to Adolf Hitler, He will spare not a single one of the enemies of the divine Cause: not a single one of its outspoken opponents but also not a single one of the luke-warm, of the opportunists, of the ideologically heretical, of the racially bastardised, of the unhealthy, of the hesitating, of the all-too-human; not a single one of those who, in body or in character or mind, bear the stamp of the fallen Ages.

    As I said before, His compagnons at arms will be the last National Socialists; the men of iron who will have victoriously stood the test of persecution and, what is more, the test of complete isolation in the midst of a dreary, indifferent world, in which they have no place; who are facing that world and defying it through every gesture, every hint, — every silence — of theirs and, more and more (in the case of the younger ones,) without even the personal memory of Adolf Hitler’s great days to sustain them; those I have called “gods on earth” and parents of such ones. They are the ones who will, one day, make good for all that which men “against Time” have suffered in the course of history, like they themselves, for the sake of eternal truth: the avenging Comrades whom the Five Thousand of Verden called in vain within their hearts at the minute of death, upon the bank of the Aller River, red with blood; those whom the millions of 1945 — the dying; the tortured; and the desperate survivors — called in vain; those whom all the vanquished fighters “against Time” called in vain, in every phase of the great cosmic Struggle without beginning, against the Forces of disintegration, co-eternal with the Forces of Life.

    They are the bridge to supermanhood, of which Nietzsche has spoken; the “last Battalion” in which Adolf Hitler has put his confidence.

    Kalki will lead them, through the flames of the great End, into the sunshine of the new Golden Age.”

    >They rely on our short-sighted insistence to build up treasures on earth.

    Or off of it.

    “If only the, ugly sub-men were capable of lofty thoughts — or simply of thought — that would be something! But they are not. And their leaders are worse than they, not better. True, they all speak of “free thinking”; speak of it, and write about it. They criticise their former friends (the Communists) for “killing individual thought.” Yet they are themselves the first ones to lack both freedom of judgement and individuality. They all have the same views; and the same ideal. Their views are those of the ruling press. Their ideal is to “get on in life,” i.e., to make money and to “be happy,” which means: to enjoy tasty food, fine clothing, lodgings provided with the latest commodities; and, in addition to that, as often as possible, a little drink, a little light music, a little sport, a little love-making. Maybe, they call themselves Christians, Hindus, or anything else. But whatever religion they might profess, their faith is skin-deep. Nothing, absolutely nothing more-than-personal — and, a fortiori, more-than-human, — interests them. The one thing they all pray for, when they pray at all, is “peace”; not the unassailable, inner peace of the Best (of which they have not the foggiest experience), but peace in the sense of absence of war; the indefinite prolongation of a “status quo” which allows them to think of to-morrow’s little pleasure without the fear of to-day’s deadly danger; peace, thanks to which they will, undisturbed, — so they hope — be able to go on rotting in the midst of that increasing comfort, which technical progress secures them; peace, thanks to which they expect to remain (or gradually to become) happy — in the manner pigs are happy, when they have plenty to eat and clean straw to lie upon.”

    Don’t worry, this means we still have plenty of time. Jesus — The Ideology — needs financiers too. It’s time to make money. Always Be Closing.

      I think your comment has been flagged as spam or trolling a couple of times now. I’ll keep an eye out so it doesn’t disappear.

      Still owe you a response, when I’ve disentangled the thing. First question: hasn’t the time of the financiers nearly passed? We live in a world where the 500 richest men on earth can buy literally anything (except that they choose not to dilute their power) and the peasants can afford only what they are allowed to afford (or what welfare can get them). In this case, fiat currency is the only meaningful currency, and only useful as a social engineering tool.

      In the most extreme example, say one dude has all the money and drip feeds it to all of us schmucks. What good is it for a schmuck to try to build wealth in order to get power? The guy at the top can always buy him out. There is no way to win that game unless he lets you.

        Either A) they will spend their money, or B) the people beneath them are undercapitalized, in which case you should just print your own.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          Good points. Scenario B is guaranteed, but the coup would require great finesse. Scenario A depends on the deep-seated values of the financial powers, and I’m not as familiar as I should be with the psychology of that sort of person.

  2. heaviside says:

    No, you don’t understand. It’s not just banks that create money; everyone creates money. All currencies are bubbles, and all bubbles are currency.

    PROTIP: Bubbles are Ponzi schemes, and if currencies are necessary for the functioning of a market economy, then the logical implication is that Ponzi schemes are an essential part of market economies.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      As time goes on, I’m becoming less of a fan of this whole “civilization” business. What was wrong with barter? I think market economies are only good for sustaining R-selected populations.
