The Future of the West is California (Unless Godly Men Act Now) By Chris Knight
Will Australia and the rest of the West end up like California? Yes, it is only a matter of time given existing trends, so we need to be prepared for the inevitable crash, as occurred right throughout history. Yes, it is sad, but that is what happens when a people embrace decadence and the diversity mania, and California is the leading edge of this madness. Individuals can be insane, raving lunatics in fact, but until recently we would not have thought that entire states and countries could be clinically insane. But, California is stark raving mad. Thus, while native Californians are homeless in record numbers, while the streets are littered with human excreta, this bankrupt state now is giving health benefits to illegals, dragging the state further into the economic cesspool, and of course, becoming a magnet for infinity illegals.
Still, some liberals (boomers) are “happy” seeing white people hungry, until, of course, they are the ones going hungry too:
In case you think this is just me being cranky, here is a view from another, no doubt just as cranky, but just as right:
“California has morphed from paradise into a garbage state run by garbage people for their own garbage benefit and amusement. The “garbage” part is literal – once the Sierra Nevada mountains symbolized the state; now, towering heaps of trash and human waste do. Welcome to what the Democrats want for all of America. Just watch your step. Literally. If it were not for the climate, something the liberals in charge of my state have nothing to do with as much as they think they do, it would likely be a nearly empty desert once again. But the sun shines, the beach beckons and the palm trees sway over a population of morons who keep electing proggy fascists to run the place. Which they are doing, right into the ground. Where once people flocked to make their dreams come true, you now pay multiples more for a U-Haul heading out than heading in. The great California middle class, made up of the Normal people whose hard work and ingenuity made it the Golden State (even though Hollywood types got the publicity), is fleeing to places where they can afford to live, and where the government doesn’t hate them. And hate them Sacramento does, targeting Normals with petty and not so petty attacks, from bans on straws and gun grabs to the threat of lifting the Proposition 13 caps on property taxes that keep millions of retirees from being tossed out of their homes when their annual bills go up 4000%. What would that mean?
Well, when that modest ranch style you bought for $100,000 in 1985 gets reassessed to its current $1,000,000 value (something Prop 13 prevents), and the 1% Prop 13 tax rate goes to 3% or 4%, your tax bill goes from $1,000 a year to $30,000-$40,000. Remember that retirement you worked for? Well, now it will all go to subsidize the deadbeat government workers and welfare cheats that the California Democrats really represent. “No, that’s crazy talk! That would never happen!” Yeah? Just watch. Already, petty crime has been effectively legalized. Crooks get a free pass on the first $950 a day they steal. The casual larceny and other offenses that make life unbearable are becoming more and more common as liberal laws release criminals to victimize regular citizens. This is known as “justice,” as if someone who steals from a hardworking businessman is being cruelly put out by being arrested for it. And now pot’s effectively legal here, which is spectacular. Just what Cali needed – more people on a drug that makes them dumber and lazier. Take a walk down the street and see the sights! Look, there’s a schizo with his cargo shorts around his ankles baying at the billboard informing you about how no human being is illegal! Oh, and there’s another homeless druggie muttering to himself about alien carrots stealing his vital essences as he pushes along his stolen shopping cart heaped with refuse. If you’re appalled or distressed by this, you’re the bad guy. Caring means letting lunatics and addicts wallow in the elements enslaved by their insanity and/or sickness. Shame on you for wanting your kids to be able to play outside. Hypodermic needles and piles of human waste on the sidewalk are just part of the price you must pay to dwell in the sun.”
This is the real face of pre-collapse, not yet the full Mad Max because it is still the case that this parasite state drains its life blood from the rest of our country. People are oblivious to oblivion, as Brett Stevens has recently written:
“During societies in this state of decline, the illusion of being “good people” comes about. Those who support the idea of equality find themselves gaining social popularity, therefore more customers, therefore winning at the consumer economy. People of this nature are explicitly anti-realistic, meaning that they reject the cause-effect logic in which we look at what actions we took, how those turned out in reality, and judge those actions by the results achieved in reality. Instead, they want us to judge by social intent, or how our actions were designed to make others feel. Actions no longer aim at results, but at symbolic goodness that brings in more customers. Knowing to some degree that the free money raid cannot last forever, these “good people” (German: gutmenschen) engage in a fiction that their actions have no consequence beyond the immediate. This bourgeois mentality announces itself any time you hear people say things like, “Just work hard, go to church, and pay your taxes, and everything will be alright.” They ignore the need to keep society functional or invest in the future.
All that matters is consumption, right now. In the bourgeois view, anything but your own desires in your own lifetime does not matter, mainly because this is what you tell customers. They ignore the long-term in favor of celebrating the individualistic and short term. Eventually this bourgeois attitude leads to something like Communism. Individualism creates a rowdy and selfish populace, and those demand free welfare and entitlements, but because of the high degree of abuse, government must oversee this to avoid exploitation. As a result, government grows more powerful until the point that the bourgeois mind rejects free markets entirely, and wants simply to have government keep order so that business can continue, as it always seems to especially under these theoretically cash-free states.
Soon things have grown bad, but only a few percent of the population can figure it out. Simpler minds understand a strong state and free stuff; they do not understand more nuanced views, and so when people talk about alternatives, they laugh and walk away. This means that the only people who understand what is wrong—that Rome is falling—will be shouted down, beaten up, and killed by those who are incapable of understanding that any option exists. All human populations demonstrate the bell curve, or a difference in abilities with most people clustered in the middle, but the middle is not complex enough to understand what is wrong or what might be better. The Dunning-Kruger Effect ensures that. Instead, the society falls into a group pathology of denying that anything is going wrong in order to avoid being clobbered by their fellow citizens, and affirming that everything is going well as a means of becoming popular and selling stuff to others.
This affirmation that all is going well forces them to embrace the idea that “decay=good,” since all is in decay, so they endorse all forms of breakdown. Perversity, corruption, criminality, stupidity, time-wasting, incompetence, and genocide must all become “good.” In the end, socializing wins out over the type of clear thought that comes from lone exceptional individuals. The herd triumphs in having finally achieved its great Utopian victory, since no one can tell them they are wrong, just before the end. When the barbarians arrive at the gates, it is too late, and has been too late for a long time. The strong minds have all left or died out. The fearful herd, cowering in darkness, calls out for its guardians to protect it. However, those saw the society for what it was, ignored its face value and looked into its essence, and got paid to do exactly what they promised, none of which included “saving a dying regime from itself.” As a result, they are long gone, and the few left who understand what must be done are not sufficient in number, not to mention barely motivated to save the group of craven, selfish, parasitic, and quivering free riders that have taken over. Thus the barbarians sweep in and easily conquer the fallen empire, which died by its own hand.”
Can this national suicide be resisted, or at least, side stepped? What about the barbarians within the gates who have come from the Trojan Horse? That is the real question.
