Gustav and have been discussing the animus Jews have been acting out toward Europeans with the purpose of asking God to intercede. We decided that a big part of the problem is that white people have a pathological self-concept from losing their raison d’etre in secular nihilism. To understand this problem, it’s necessary to determine what a healthy European spirit looks like. That is, what purpose exactly did God have in mind when he created white people, based on what we can observe about them? We concluded that God created white people specifically to be artists, to experience and express joy profoundly, embodying the paradoxical relationship between childlike, lighthearted whimsy and profound depths of understanding and feeling.
In its healthy form, Europe embodies Aslan in his aspect as the creator, singing Narnia into existence. Our greatest spiritual heights are characterized by magnificent cathedrals resounding with soaring heights of choral fervor, improbable acts of worship expressing an appreciation for God that, in my opinion, correctly strikes other races as a bit unhinged. In fact, I’d make the case that white people will always be a bit crazy one way or another, either good crazy or bad crazy, because our niche is in artistic genius and “there was never a genius without a tincture of madness”. Edward Dutton’s explanation for the low ethnocentrism observed in NW Europeans is that we’ve evolved specifically to get the most mileage possible out of our geniuses. Hence, we tend to nonmaterialism, religious fixations, and a schizotypal individualism that somehow acts as a de facto tolerance and altruism.
In contrast, you can imagine modern Europe to be a talking lion that’s pretending to be a cub, a willful immaturity that is dangerously unpredictable to any living thing nearby that might provoke the neurotic beast. One gets the sense it’s scared or ignorant of its own potential–upon using its natural adult strength it would jump with surprise. If it weren’t fucked in the head it could be a decent, Aslan-like, king-of-the-jungle kind of lion. Where before you had craftsmen building cathedrals for hundreds of years in a long, controlled release of religious ecstasy, you now have Marxist ideologues sacrificing one hundred million unborn children for a vision of the future utopia they will never witness.
The key to a European revival movement then must be a call to joy, a return to our duty to appreciation in the artistic sense and accommodation in the psychological sense. Our souls crave the experience of understanding the meaning of something and feeling the sensory impact of it at the same time. It’s our calling to worship God in his capacity as creator in response to this sort of inspiration with a complexity, harmony, and sheer magnitude that are enabled by our particular nature. We think this is why the lion perversely wants to pretend it’s a cub. Children are much better at these things and an adult who’s lost the humility and security of being small and responsible for nothing in a big, mysterious world will fantasize about recovering this lost sense of pre-rational wonder.
The adult expression of this childish spirit is exemplified in the kings and queens of Narnia. They were pretty wild, like David, but sometimes burdened by situational responsibilities. The wildness was informed by artistic sensibilities, channeled into a love for country, and only post facto rationalizing that inspiration into justice. The European king, at least insofar as he’s the archetype of this ideal self-concept, would be a performance artist balancing mercy and justice. These aren’t concerns you can balance by critical thinking, though you can imagine Caspian justifying his decisions using Aristotelian logic. The artistic preference came first, like taste, and the accounting came afterward.
Will have to continue this line of thought tomorrow.
