The desire for race war is a result of confusion

Recently Jim had an article in which he discusses the so-called day of the rope. The day of the rope (and the related helicopter rides) is a commonly referenced trope among at least some parts of the alt-right. It is my humble opinion that most of this is hyperbole used primarily for shock and awe. Otherwise known as lolz. In other words, it probably shouldn’t be taken too seriously and I think most people realize this. Or hope so.

However, it may be that some people at least take this as a serious and proper policy in the event that power is seized by reactionary groups. The left does, of course, because it suits their narrative. However, I could also imagine particularly disenfranchised and confused individuals taking this hyperbole to heart and acting rashly on their own accord. It is towards this avoidable potentiality which this post is addressed.

As Jim points out, many people in support of the cathedral today are exactly equivalent to Havel’s green grocer. In other words, there are many people who ape the common tropes of the cathedral because if they don’t they may lose their often apolitical jobs and their kids will starve. These people are in the completely unenviable position where they are forced to live a lie while knowing in their heart they would be much happier without it. I would argue that a true majority, at least, of those outwardly espousing progressivism to co-workers and other personally known acquaintances fall into this category for one reason or another. It is not right or proper to hate a man simply because he wants to live his life in peace and/or wants to maintain good conditions for his family. This is a reasonable desire we all share. He really has very little choice in the matter and this personally rational decision under current circumstances in no way warrants punishment at the end of of a rope or a ride in a helicopter. Give him the opportunity to be free and he will gladly call you brother.

A great deal of the anger felt on the reactionary right is related to race. And for good reason. It is clear that large portions of some populations, especially blacks, are basically out of control. The broader community is doing a pretty good job pointing this out and convincing people that something must be done about it. The rope meme, for better or worse, is often used in the context. Honestly, though, I think some may not realize that greatly reducing “petty” crime, for lack of a better term, is not actually all that difficult when you have the proper will, motivation, and institutions. Even extremely flawed cathedral institutions can successfully solve, or at least drastically reduce, this issue given the right motivation. Criminality by individuals is certainly an issue, but it is one that is eminently addressable without the need to resort to mass public executions.

The real issue with crime by problematic populations over the last few years has far more to do with motivations and reactions of institutions than it has to do with the technical feasibility of curtailing crimes by individuals. Even though law enforcement institutions are on the front lines, it is difficult to pass very much blame onto them with the exception of some of their leadership. Far more important to the public perception of the problem, which increases it like throwing gasoline on a fire, are the actions of NGOs, academia, and the media. All of which regularly and consistently encouraged more chaos among simplistic proles through their publications and coverage.

The unifying feature of these organizations is that in most cases it is possible for a small number of individuals to direct the policies and narrative of them. In the case of NGOs like the SPLC and Black Lives Matter, this control is exerted by donors:

The documents further confirm that the Open Society [A George Soros org] last year approved $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.”

In the case of the media it is a small number of owners. In the case of academia it is less obvious how this control structure works, but clearly involves centralized federal funding, hiring ideologically and enforcing ideological norms on possibly neutral professors.

It is clear to me that these groups who clearly have a limited number of leaders and funders are intentionally exacerbating the fundamental problem of individual cases of black crime to exceptional levels above and beyond all reason. This is obvious in the case of getting blacks riled up to go out and riot, but I think it is less obvious that they may also desire to some degree the militant reaction of the white population. In other words, I am starting to wonder if these actions are some sort of divide and conquer initiative.

It is quite possible that this is a case of virtue signalling gone awry and at the lower levels and in academia this is almost certainly a large factor. However, it is clear that there are other motives at higher levels. From the leaked emails at the Soros foundation:

In particular, recent events offer a unique opportunity to accelerate the dismantling of structural inequality generated and maintained by local law enforcement and to engage residents who have historically been disenfranchised in Baltimore City in shaping and monitoring reform.

It seems to me that the apparent over-arching goal of the last several years of black riots was to get blacks, whites and everyone else so bothered by black crime/black deaths to consent to major reforms in law enforcement for opposite reasons. Typically the way any such reforms have been handled in the past has been to create federal legislation and mandates that require specific actions for local or state entities to qualify for federal money. Usually this money is substantial and virtually no local agency, law enforcement or otherwise, can say no. Since the feds are getting the money from local taxpayers then redistributing it, the setup can directly hinder local self-funding. Refusing the federal policies basically equates to instituting a double tax on the locals because the federal income tax just disappears and more tax must be taken locally. It is a double bind and onerously expensive, thus almost never tried. It is a very sneaky way to exert centralized control in a way technically within the limits of the constitution, though obviously in complete opposition to the spirit. Proving, perhaps, the worthlessness of the document.

Thus, the handling of the very real issue of minority crime appears to be a distraction with ulterior motives at its current level of hysteria. Specifically a desired result of it is some sort of federalization of police departments. Getting wrapped up in the distraction can and will cause confusion for everyone involved and could potentially result in a much more Orwellian structure than needed to address the underlying problems. People who want a day of the rope, or a race war, have allowed themselves to be caught up in this ploy and need to reflect on more sensible positions than any which require completely unnecessary mass executions.

In the early days of my subreddit, I created a guideline to help with this unfortunate tendency for drastic reactionary anger and termed it biotemperance. I believe it is a helpful concept to re-review considering the events which have happened since.

There has recently been some confusion about how discussions about different ethnic groups can be conducted in this subreddit. Frank and open discussion on any and all ethnicities is and will be tolerated. Period.

However, there is a common concept or principle in the manosphere that is equally applicable to this situation (slightly modified) which I will refer to as biotemperance. In the context of game and relationships there is a disparity between what men tend to want in terms of love and relationships and what women are able to provide. (read this, then this, then this for more detail) Taking the red pill involves the understanding and acceptance that due to biological instincts women act in certain consistent ways which often lead to frustration in men. By understanding the biological imperatives of women, a man can work within that framework to then create more fulfilling relationships. Men gain an understanding and acceptance of biological determinism in mating with the intent of improving the quality of his life and that of the woman or women he is with. Women can’t be blamed or hated for having the instincts that they do because the man would never, ever be able to form fulfilling relationships with that kind of baggage. Moreover, natural selection has endowed women with these instincts for a reason: it improves her odds of being successful in reproduction. Therefore not only is it necessary to not hold onto hate or blame from a quality of life perspective, it is also irrational in the context of evolution.

In the general case, a good definition of biotemperance:

biotemperanceis when the pursuit of knowledge of biological differences between human groups is guided by a moderate temperament and desire for benevolent outcomes for both the pursuer and group under consideration.

I do not suggest that one group should make sacrifices for the sake of another (see Atlas Shrugged for more details).

I feel the concept is important for the growth of this sub. Western culture is irrationally afraid of HBD as part of the aftermath of World War II. Racial conflict and mass murder figured greatly into all the theatres of that war. After it was over, it is understandable that intellectuals would try to craft the culture in such a way as to prevent such things from happening again. Preventing genocide is a desirable goal. Unfortunately, they resorted to a fiction of complete egalitarianism which, being untrue, is also very unstable. To quote Anthony Edwards

It is a dangerous mistake to premise the moral equality of human beings on biological similarity because dissimilarity, once revealed, then becomes an argument for moral inequality.

Biotemperance, if genuinely accepted by neoreaction, should allay the neurotic fears many people have that even talking about HBD is one step away from genocide. Most people have a knee-jerk reaction of fascism when they read this sub, I want to do whatever I can to get rid of that impression.

If and when the egalitarian bubble pops, and neoreaction grows significantly, biotemperance should ensure that whatever realistic steps are taken to improve order in society do so in a humane way. (I am not using the liberal definition. For example, it would have been far more humane for Belgium to have maintained control over the Congo so it could have imposed order. Imposing order through force by colonial powers would have clearly been more humane when compared with the suffering, deaths, rapes and other atrocities since the country became “independent”.)

Biotemperance will be treated as a guideline or suggestion and not a rule. It is not mandatory that you agree with it. You should feel free to disagree with the concept and perhaps post a better alternative if you have one. In terms of moderation, biotemperance will be my main guide for evaluating whether posts are trolls or, less likely, shills. If experience of /r/theredpill is any indication, there are people who would like to create havoc here because they strongly disagree with the DE. One of the tactics employed is to post extreme crazy ideas in order to discredit the overall sub to outsiders. This problem hasn’t happened yet, but if the sub grows it will likely be something that needs to be addressed. If a post strongly deviates from biotemperance (IE advocating genocide) it would be removed. However, I only anticipate applying this in very extreme and obvious cases.

Black Supremacists publicly threatened Dallas police and fire fighters a month before the shootings according to a leaked Dallas Police Department memo

A user on my subreddit sent me a private message claiming to be a Dallas city employee (he didn’t say what he did, but I assume he/she was a fire fighter based on the memo I was sent). I was told that about a month before the current shootings, a memo went out from the Dallas police department warning city employees to be careful because a black supremacist group  known as the African American Defense League (AADL) made a facebook post telling its members to not only target police in their “fight,” but to also target fire fighters as well. This post apparently received enough support from Dallas area blacks that the DPD felt the need to warn at minimum the fire department if not all city employees. After the shooting last week, the user felt that this memo should be publicly shared even though it is intended only for city workers. He asked me to post it for him so that it could not be traced back to him. I agreed and here it is (I covered up any phone numbers, emails, or individual names on the document):

Memo redact screenshot

The anonymous Dallas employee did not provide me with any other comments, he/she just wanted me to share the memo and chose me since I am fairly accessible on reddit. The rest of this post is my own thoughts and has no association with the source.

The first thing that sticks out is the Marxist fist pump. At least there is no confusion what branch of political thought is creating these terrorists…

The second thing that pops out is that clearly the DPD had at least a month warning about the increasing militancy of the local black population. Could they have launched investigations then and possibly prevented this shooting? Was this group officially recognized as a terrorist group or was it only lightly covered via this memo? Did some of the perpetraitors (pun intended) like this comment? The existence of this document raises a lot of questions.

Lastly, the fact that these groups would target fire fighters boggles my mind. If a fire fighter shows up near you the only thing he is going to be doing is trying to save lives. Your life, your friends life, your child’s life and whoever else is in need of saving. This doesn’t always mean fires either. Many if not most fire fighters do double duty as emergency medical technicians. If you get in a wreck, it is usually a fire fighter using the jaws of life to get you out of your crumpled car. You or someone you know has a drug overdose, including alcohol, you bet it is likely a fire fighter keeping you alive long enough to get to the ER. Stroke, heart attack, you name it, these are all things fire fighters come across day to day. Fire fighters are not involved in law enforcement at all. How could anyone be that stupid to want to target them? If you chase them away or kill them, it is you, your friends, and family who are going to die when help doesn’t arrive.

I will hazard to guess it is a symptom of a population of people who have on average only an 85 IQ [PDF]. Since IQ is a distribution, half of the black population falls below that. In the past, that half of the black population would have been considering mentally retarded. However, in 1995 the threshold was shifted down to 70-75. Care to guess why this was done? A hint:  It wasn’t because people in that range became more competent. It was because half of the black population had to be officially classified as retards and political correctness could not let that stand. So, the establishment threw out all experience (people below 85 IQ really aren’t very functional) and just changed the definition to sound better. You can’t make this stuff up.

I think we need to re-evaluate our understanding of these violent black groups. These aren’t normal human beings; these are people who are literally retarded via the older and more accurate definition (IQ<85). Chances are that as a group they are just too dumb to understand the basic concepts we take for granted. For example, fire fighters save lives and shouldn’t be harmed. Local businesses provide you with valuable services, but they won’t stick around if you destroy them. If you act like a complete git and threaten a cop, chances are you are going to get shot and possibly killed.

Frankly, other races should stop assuming blacks have any sort of agency at all. Their IQ is not high enough to allow them to think through things effectively. When you start from that premise, the practical approaches to the black problem become more obvious. Allowing the mentally retarded portion of black population (i.e., half of their population) the level of freedom they currently waste has been a complete disaster. They constantly kill each other (and us when they get the chance), they rape, they steal, they are unable to perform adequately at decent job and they also suffer catastrophic family break down. Plus, their general criminality puts them under the constant, and warranted, suspicion of law enforcement.

I am sure their lives are pretty miserable. They blame whites for their failures, and while their failures are of their own making, there is something to that. Is it really fair that we allow millions of mentally retarded people go about their business without any adult supervision? Is it really fair for us to believe that these people can take care of themselves when quite obviously they can’t? If a child suffered neglect, I think they would have a case to resent their parents. While this isn’t the same, we don’t owe blacks anything, I can see a certain similarity in the situations. We could legitimately make their lives less bitter while not exacerbating the problem for future generations. However, the only way to do that is to accept that we aren’t dealing with rational human beings with agency, but a large population of the mentally handicapped. Letting a huge population of literal retards run wild on our streets was a huge mistake and everyone is suffering for it, including blacks themselves.

A response to Duerte Harry

Recently Jim wrote about the future president of the Philippines, affectionately known as Duerte Harry because of a slight similarity of his last name to the first name in the movie dirty harry as well as his similar approach to crime as the title character. Namely that the only good crook is a dead one. Duerte Harry is heavily criticized by progressives enthralled to anarcho-tyranny because as Mayor of Davao he wasted no time with criminals, he just killed them.

As Mayor of Davao, [Duerte] has been accused of running vigilante death squads that have killed more than 1,000 people.

On the other hand, average law-abiding people obviously love him because his method is undeniably (and unsurprisingly) effective. A criminal can’t commit crimes when they are six feet under. Would-be criminals start to have enough fear to think twice. Therefore, once dangerous neighborhoods become safe for people of moderate means because everyone committing crimes is dead or in hiding, average people become happy. That kind of competent governance has led Duerte Harry to a landslide victory in the race for the presidency of the Philippines.

During his campaign he promised to end crime in the ENTIRE country within six months. If it were anyone else I would be skeptical, but he has a successful track record and enough right-wing death squads that he just might make this a reality. Here is a rundown of his campaign:

Philippine President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to end crime in his first six months in office through mass executions of convicts and eliminating police corruption… While on the campaign trail, the elderly politician enraged critics and hypnotized fans with promises to ignore human rights laws and solve crime by killing tens of thousands of convicts.

I must admit I am impressed. Part of his platform was willfully ignoring (progressive) human rights laws and a plurality of the country loved him for it. Can’t say I am all that surprised. If you have ever been in a bar that is mostly blue collar and talk about some crime or another, almost everyone will say that the S.O.B. who did it should just be killed and be done with it. This is probably true all over the world. If a person lives somewhere with a high crime rate especially, the idea of getting even with the thug who victimized them is probably high on their wish list. With a president like Duerte Harry, the dream just may come true. If the president kills tons of criminals, he just might get that specific criminal you would like to see get his karmic reward.

The only people who don’t think this way are typically rich liberals who can afford to isolate themselves from the trash. Rampant crime doesn’t bother them as much since they don’t have to live through it, and getting that smug feeling of self-righteousness is more important to them than the well-being of decent people unable to separate geographically from the trash.

Anyway, I would like to point out that Duerte Harry’s plan has plenty of advantages beyond just the immediate lowering of the crime rate. It is actually a profoundly eugenic policy. The personality that makes for a risk-taking criminal also often generates lust in many women. A criminal has high time preference and given his natural seductive talents, is likely to father multiple children by multiple women. And to become scarce when it is time to actually raise them. Do all criminals have this ability? Probably not, but criminals probably have a higher proportion of this ability than the average of the general population. By killing a criminal, you prevent him from reproducing ever again. You actually prevent any number of criminals from ever being born. Fantastic. You also can reduce the rate of single motherhood by removing bad choices from her vicinity, and reducing single motherhood has all sorts of positive benefits itself. Killing violent criminals is a likely reason why the west is (or was) relatively more civilized than other places. Our ancestors really liked their executions.

There is one last thing I would like to note about Jim’s post, and that is to confirm his appraisal of Duerte’s death squads compared to Western police forces. Basically he found that he felt perfectly safe around the death squads because they were highly disciplined and focused on actual criminals. In the West, on the other hand, decent, law-abiding citizens regularly find themselves fearful or wary of police even when they are quite certain they are doing nothing wrong. I have felt this way plenty of times and regularly avoid officers just in case they decide to harass me for the hell of it. I feel this way because it has happened on plenty of occasions. Especially in college, but after that as well.

For example, if you have a beer or two you have to think twice about walking out of your door. And I am not defending going out completely sloshed, I mean only a beer or two. A police officer is not unlikely to slap you with a 3-400 dollar fine even when you are just trying to go about your business. I remember one time in college I was going to a party and had not drank anything. At least not yet, and neither had my friends that were with me. As soon as I arrived officers quickly ran up to us gave all my friends and I tickets for drinking. We hadn’t had a single beer. They were in it merely to harass, annoy, and maybe get some easy income for the city. They were apparently upset that the people already in the house wouldn’t let them in, so they took it out on us. The whole situation was crap. Meanwhile, on the other side of the city you have a (minority) area overloaded with violent crime and hard drug use that never seemed to get any better . For some reason the police couldn’t do anything about that (anarchy), but they had plenty of time to pick on college students (tyranny). We were easy targets.

After college I spent about 2 years living, working, and traveling in south east Asia. I never once felt the same sort of dread at seeing a police officer in any of those countries. The simple matter was they weren’t going to bother you unless you were actually visibly doing something wrong, and they were very consistent about that. There is only one example of an exception to this rule and that is that sometimes you could get your scooter pulled over and they would check it for drugs, or they might come into a bar and check it for drugs. In the whole time I was there I only saw this happen twice, so about once per year, and only in extremely touristy areas. Outside of those areas it was unheard of and I never saw anyone harassed by police undeservedly. In fact, the only time I saw the police in action was when a homeless man set a truck on fire and he obviously had it coming. I personally never once had trouble with the police, even if I saw other people being checked.

Now, I won’t skip over the important specific example, because it was messed up, but you have to make a comparison to what might happen in the states under similar circumstances. However, I am not going to get too into the details. And the story is second-hand anyway since I wasn’t immediately around when it happened. Some people I had met and was hanging out with generally, if not at this exact moment, got arrested for smoking marijuana. The police forced them each to pay somewhere between 200-500 USD in bribes to get out of the ticket. One guy got really mouthy and they made him pay the bribe, then picked him up the next day and made him pay it twice. That ended his trip and he had to go back to his country of origin.

So they made them pay bribes, which is corruption and sucks right? Well, ya it does, but what would have happened if you were arrested in the US?  My brother has been arrested for smoking pot several times and I watched him go through all of the following types of BS at one point or another until he finally wizened up and quit. The fine you would pay would easily be 300-500 or more (sometimes they add a yearly payment on top of the initial fine that lasts several years), you would have to do between 20 and 100 hours or more of community service, you probably would have had to pay for some “drugs er bad M’kay” class which would waste a few hundred dollars and up to 20 hours of your time, and you would likely have a permanent mark on your record that would make securing future employment far more difficult. To avoid the permanent record, you could be put on probation for a year which requires regular visits to a government office for drug tests. Failing that and other harsh restrictions could lead to bigger fines or jail time. It could easily take years of annoyance to finally stop having to interact with the cursed legal bureaucracy. If you had gotten mouthy like the guy in the story (and apparently he was pretty bad according to his friends) you might expect to get tazed or even shot in the US. Now tell me, which of these things sounds worse to you? Paying a one-time fee and never having to look back, or years of wasted time, money, and hassle as well as bleaker employment options? The kind of crap they force people to go through over a relatively harmless plant is clearly an example of the tyranny part of anarcho-tyranny.

There is no contest. The one example of BS, which I never experienced personally and is honestly easily avoidable if you take simple precautions, actually has far preferable resolution conditions than the equivalent in the states. Not that I want to laud corruption, but if you are going to have it the system over there is superior. In SE Asia corruption is available to all. If you are of modest means and you get caught committing some minor infraction, such as smoking pot, you can pay a bribe just as easily as the wealthiest man in your city to avoid interaction with the legal system and any sort of permanent record. In most of the US this simply isn’t possible unless you are well-connected, and even when it is it is far more expensive. I would honestly argue that the corruption there is in many ways more fair to the middle class and lower than the rigid legalism of the US. It is certainly far easier to move on with your life after something minor happens.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not condoning drug use. A lot of drugs can cause a lot of harm if over-used. In the case of pot, however, its only real problem is that it makes people forgetful and lazy. That can be a problem yes, but not one I think the legal system needs to be involved in addressing. And even being involved it shouldn’t be more than a minor fine and that is it. Of course, it wouldn’t be the US if the state didn’t harass relatively decent people for the hell of it.

Tribal posturing: Parents of Michael Brown testify before UN

I haven’t said much on the the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, but I have been following it. In short, a young (and large) black man named Michael Brown was shot and killed by police officers. Most of the available evidence suggests that Brown was a thug and criminal (here is a video of his robbery immediately before his death). Considering his previous actions and history, there is a pretty good chance that the officer’s story is correct. Brown attacked them and left little choice but to open fire. A regrettable turn of events, but Brown is largely responsible for his own fate by virtue of his poor decisions.  Unfortunately, many blacks and progressives do not see it that way. Given the facts available, it is hard to understand how the situation could be interpreted in any way that doesn’t acknowledge the role Brown’s actions had in his death.

Hard, but not impossible. Evolution (or evolutionary psychology) doesn’t always favor pure rationality. In this case, thedish loyalty or tribalism outweighs the facts on the ground on what is fair between the two individuals. When two individuals from different groups or tribes come into conflict, from an evolutionary standpoint it is likely that members of a tribe stand more to gain from unconditionally aligning with another member of the tribe against outsiders even if the outsider is objectively in the right. Through this lens, it is much easier to understand why no matter how obviously a black person is shown to be in the wrong, you will always have droves of other blacks aligning with him/her unconditionally and trying to convince everyone else of the tribe members innocence. This course of alliance making is true of most human groups. The notable exception seems to be white liberals. HBD chic suggests that a large fraction of whites are exceptions from tribalism because of past extensive out-breeding. With this unique heritage that now seems to have become pathological, it can be seen why progressives come to ally with the group outside their thede. With less loyalty to others who are clearly related to them, the instead rely more on cultural cues (progressivism) to signal to and find other members of their thede who may or may not be closely related.

In any event, to get to the title of this post. The parents of Michael Brown recently were allowed to address the U.N. on the death of their son despite all evidence that suggests Brown was no martyr. This would be risible if it weren’t a symptom of extreme decay in our civilization.

The media, as is typical with racial issues, at best only shows ambivalence towards possible guilt by minorities:

Accounts differ as to what led to the August shooting of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, by a white police officer.

“Accounts differ” is quite a stretch. They have video evidence of Brown committing a robbery immediately before he was detained. That doesn’t discourage Brown’s parents from making calls of action:

“We need answers and we need action. And we have to bring it to the U.N. so they can expose it to the rest of the world, what’s going on in small town Ferguson.”

Of course, they want the officer who was attacked to be immediately arrested regardless of evidence in a classic case of tribalism. What kind of action are they looking for?

[The parents want] an end to “racial profiling and racially-biased police harassment across the jurisdictions surrounding Ferguson.”

Blacks don’t commit more crimes on average, it is just discrimination…. How might this “discrimination” be solved?

[The US department of Justice] “must conduct a nationwide investigation of systematic police brutality and harassment in black and brown communities, and youth in particular. Methodology and findings of this investigation must be made publicly available.”

So the tax money of law abiding citizens must be used to concoct excuses whole sale for underclass, and especially black underclass, criminals. I think I could imagine better ways to spend tax money than imagining stories which are meant to keep criminals out on the streets.

But wait, there’s more! The Brown’s weren’t acting by themselves. In fact, one can wonder if they had much to do with their appearance at the UN at all. Low SES people don’t generally have the time or connections to garner such an audience or to draft political speeches. So who helped them?

The delegation that organized their trip said the couple would read from a statement submitted by the Brown family and organizations called HandsUpUnited, the Organization for Black Struggle, and Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment.

What a wholesome line up…. Unsurprisingly,  Marxists and black nationalists are milking this situation for everything it is worth, which is surprisingly more than I would have guessed. I imagine they probably talked or possibly pressured the parents into doing this. I wonder what the parents thoughts would have actually been if the media exposure and special interests groups hadn’t interfered.

I feel bad for these parents. They lost a son and instead of being allowed to come to terms with what he did wrong to get himself killed, they are being fed a bunch of Marxist lies about racism and class struggle which can only serve to fuel their bitterness and hatred for many years to come, if not for the rest of their lives.
