One of the many depressing aspects of the falling apart of the country is the reorganization of it along constructed racial lines.
The blacks are out of control! Or rather, are presented as such. Whites oppress! All of them, all the time. Since time began!
It is the Jews who are behind it all!
The Gauleiter of Virginia – Ralph Northam, aka “Coonman” – isn’t Jewish. Neither is the Gauleiter of New York or California.
Their “race” – their religion – is authoritarian collectivism.
And that is our enemy.
Not Barack Obama’s skin. His “faith.” Which he shares with his predecessor, whose white skin and non-Jewishness didn’t immunize him against authoritarian collectivism.
This is the foundational disease and it comes in every color of the rainbow. To avoid becoming sickened by it, we must not let it infect us.
Or rather, not allow it to undermine us. And empower those preaching it.
To collectivism, as such.
Perhaps you see why agglutinations based on general appearances is being so acidly promoted. Black vs. white. Women vs. men. “The Jews” – vs. “us.” To take our focus off of them. The Northams, Newsomes and Cuomos, oh my! The authoritarian collectivists. Whose goal is to collectivize us all, irrespective of how we look or what we worship and which sexual apparatus we possess.
Identity politics is a form of collectivism which – like all such – leads to authoritarianism in its name. It blames groups for the actions of individuals, fungible like pawns on a chessboard.
Not an individual or even a human being whose virtues or lack might take some effort to discover and respond to accordingly.
Similarly – congruently – the black man I see across the street? He isn’t a man, either. He is a black man – an alien creature (per identity politics) on that account; someone who must also be regarded as an archetype, a manifestation of his group. Someone who has been taught to regard me in the same manner – before we have said a word to each other.
Who must also regard himself as an archetype. As I am expected to regard myself.
Exhausting, isn’t it?
Human interaction – which is personal and individual – is rendered impossible by identity politics. Which makes civilization itself impossible. Because without the presumption of innocence – and with the collectivization of guilt and virtue – arbitrariness reigns. And arbitrariness is a working definition of tyranny. It leads to mindless oppression first and wholesale slaughter inevitably.
In a collectivized society, everyone is pre-loaded with preconceptions and either presumed guilty of things – or innocent of them – on account of what other people (never specific people) who share general appearances or circumstances did or didn’t do to other people (also never specific people) a long time ago.
How does one atone for what one did not do? How does one assert innocence?
Or establish guilt?
How is it that a person who hasn’t been harmed is entitled to harm someone who hasn’t harmed him – because someone who shared the same general appearance may have harmed the ancestor of someone who shared the same general appearance of the supposed “victim”?
It is based on the ancient and effective doctrine of divide and conquer practiced by the Roman caesars. They understood that keeping the disparate skin tones and cultures and religious groups under control was a simple matter of keeping them at each other’s throats.
The caesars, incidentally, weren’t Jewish.
Who twirled his moustaches and laughed at their idiocy.
Today, the Coonman – and his fellow high priests of authoritarian collectivism – also laugh and twirl their moustaches. It is so easy to control people accustomed to agglutination.
Imagine how difficult it would have been to “lock down” the country – excepting the handful of places, such as South Dakota, where the sickness of authoritarian collectivism hasn’t yet “spiked” – if rather than agglutinized, WuFlu had been considered on a case-by-case basis.
If I am 80 or not in good health, it makes sense for me – as an individual human being – to avoid public places where I might catch the bug. But if I am 35 and in good health, it does not – and so I don’t.
But the agglutinized herd, having been preconditioned by the authoritarian collectivists – behind the curtain and with their hands on the levers of power to accept the collectivized policy of one-size-fits-all accepted it.
And are now agglutinized against those who didn’t. The Face-diapered vs. those who aren’t.
It is just the same as black vs. white and women vs. men except it is really all of us against a few of them. An old straight white guy named Albert J. Nock wrote about it a long, forgotten time ago (Our Enemy, the State). A Jewish guy named Murray Rothbard did, too.
If only more of us could see it – rather than seeing each other as cardboard cutout archetypes, as they wish us to see each other.
Then we could pull down some statues, all right.
And maybe some other things besides.
