Osama bin Laden predicted the United States would break up. The measures and expense of the “security” state and the eternal war are certainly causing tension. Samuel Huntington’s The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order seems to be on the mark. The Western, Turkish, Persian, Chinese, Russian and Hispanic civilizations are all generating friction with their neighbors.

“”Ramos took an unusual tack, pivoting from talk of diversity and togetherness into boasts of conquest. Mass immigration, particularly illegal immigration, was a fait accompli. There is nothing the U.S. can do about it, and they must accept that America is “not their” country and that illegal aliens, particularly Latinos, “are not going to leave,””

The US is traditionally a society of citizens living under the rule of law, as opposed to the rule of a king, despot or tyrant. It was not race or religion based, but incorporated a state of mind. The melting pot ensured continuity of their different perspective through time. The ending of assimilation and increased emphasizing of difference have weakened the glue which bound the society. Recent history will have encouraged views like these:

A 2013 poll found that 66 percent of Mexicans believe the U.S. government has no right to limit immigration, while 52 percent said Mexicans have a right to be in the United States. Another 88 percent said it is fine to enter the U.S. illegally if one needs money. Over half, 56 percent, said they had friends or family who tried to immigrate to the U.S. illegally.”

Attempts to remake the world order to remove the role of States with the right to enforce their boarders is not without popular appeal. As utopian visions go, it is probably no more far fetched than those of Marx, Hitler or even Charles Fourier. The split between the national and international socialists was heated and bloody. Both had state sponsors. The internationalists Russian state sponsor won the war against the national socialists. Socialists have defined themselves as having an internationalist perspective ever since. Global dominance is nothing, if not international in nature. States, be they socialist or otherwise, cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the inevitable glorious socialist future.

I’ve labeled their vision utopian. Like other central communist tenets it contradicts fundamental aspects of human nature. We evolved as tribal creatures. We will form tribes. They can be based on race, religion, ideology, geography, sport, hobby or basically anything which we have in common with some and not others. The internet has greatly expanded the range of possibilities. The current US unrest may prove to be the tip of the iceberg.

 
Exploiting productive people

Peasants used to be the primary productive class. They were the ones slaving away to support those living off their labor. Now it’s the capitalists, skilled workers, risk takers and the thrifty whose wealth is being expropriated. The money is no longer given to retainers, but welfare recipients and others who can be trusted to vote the right way. The blood sucking vampires living off the sweat of the working people are not courtiers or capitalists in any true sense of the word, but the connected class.

It’s the bribery of population segments which is behind the retribalisation of the West. But look around, countries which remained tribalised did not enrich their people. Neither will a retribalised West. We have inherited a legacy of wealth, but we can cannibalize and live off it for only so long.

But the privileged elite either do not know or do not care. To hell with the national interest, their only concern is their own interest. They are desperately clinging on to power. They are the truely bitter clingers.

Hello privileged elite, we see you for what you are. You’re not just parasites, but parasitoids. Survival of our civilisation necessitates the removal of your corrosive and corrupting influence. Earn your money in a free market, not through government largess. That includes greenies, much of the finance sector and other corporate welfare recipients as well as individual dependents.

With so many bought already, it is no surprise that they have the numbers in this on-going death spiral. The growth of debt/GDP reveals by just how much they have exceeded the capacity of our society, their host, to support them. They will kill it and our way of life if we do not contain them. We can but hope enough of them realize it’s in their and their children’s longer term best interest to side with us – the productive people.

We exploited peasants when they produced the surplus which was expropriated. Now it is capitalists, skilled workers, risk takers and savers being exploited. With peasants we realized that it was in all our interests that they continued to be productive, to feed us. It’s the same with our current productive classes. Communists might have been willing to starve millions for the greater good, others were not. We must not allow the productive classes ot be persecuted “for the greater good”. Loopy lefty ideology must not be allowed to run rampant over our rights and our way of life. It’s not just time to say enough, but well past it.
