Why Enoch Powell was Right, and Not Right Enough by Brian Simpson

With the weekly reports of rapidly accelerating social breakdown and ethno-racial cultural conflict, it is timely to revisit British MP Enoch Powell (1912-1998), who was vilified for his “Rivers of Blood” speech, delivered to the Conservative Association meeting, Birmingham, April 20, 1968. The speech is reproduced below. First, here are some theoretical reasons why Powell was right, and why glazed eyed universalism is wrong:

Proposition (1): The Simmel-Coser principle: conflict between groups tends to increase the internal cohesion and sense of group identity of said groups: G. Simmel, Conflict: The Web of Group-Affiliations, (Free Press, Glencoe, 1955); L. A. Coser, The Functions of Social Conflict, (Free Press, Glencoe, 1956).
Proposition (2): The Choi/Bowles hypothesis: the evolutionary benefits of parochial altruism:
“Altruism—benefiting fellow group members at a cost to oneself—and parochialism—hostility toward individuals not of one’s own ethnic, racial, or other group—are common human behaviors. The intersection of the two—which we term “parochial altruism”—is puzzling from an evolutionary perspective because altruistic or parochial behavior reduces one’s payoffs by comparison to what one would gain by eschewing these behaviors. But parochial altruism could have evolved if parochialism promoted intergroup hostilities and the combination of altruism and parochialism contributed to success in these conflicts. Our game-theoretic analysis and agent-based simulations show that under conditions likely to have been experienced by late Pleistocene and early Holocene humans, neither parochialism nor altruism would have been viable singly, but by promoting group conflict, they could have evolved jointly.” See; J-K. Choi and S. Bowles, “The Coevolution of Parochial Altruism and War,” Science, vol. 318, 2007, pp. 636-640.
Proposition (3): Thesis of warfare intensity: ethno-racial and cultural distance affects warfare intensity, with the greater the ethno-racial and cultural distance, the more intense the conflict: J. Solometo, “The Dimensions of War,” in E. N. Arkush and M. W. Allen (eds), The Archaeology of Warfare: Prehistories of Raiding and Conquest, (University Press of Florida, Gainesville, 2006), pp. 24-65.
Proposition (4): Universal genocide thesis: genocide is more frequent between ethno-racially and culturally dissimilar groups and may take the form of a “war of extermination”: P. Turchin, “Warfare and the Evolution of Social Complexity: A Multilevel Selection Approach,” Structure and Dynamics, vol. 4, 2011, pp. 1-37.
Conclusion: From propositions (1)-(4) expect the future to be one where the River Tiber, everywhere, will foam with much blood: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/3643823/Enoch-Powells-Rivers-of-Blood-speech.html.

Section 18C: From Tyrannical to Tyrannical by Ian Wilson LL.B

At present, there are two main positions for reform of section 18 C of the Racial Discrimination Act. The first is to keep the section, including the “offence” clause, but to add a reasonable person test. Actually, media comments referred to the “man on the Bondi tram,” but he is long gone. Instead it could be a woman or transgendered person, which is not a trivial point. “Man” is sexist, and that is close to “racist.”

Those championing this idea are quick to add that while they value free speech, they do not accept “racist and xenophobic speech.” Today such speech has been redefined to include almost anything worth saying about race and immigration.

The Return to the Kow Towing Keating Era by Peter Ewer

The elites jump for joy at harpooning One Nation in the Western Australian election, what they call a “flop.” One person’s flop, though, is another person’s victory, as One Nation will probably get two seats, despite the rest of the thugs joining forces against Hanson, as thugs always do.

Nevertheless, the ordinary people should get some more guts and brains and wake up before there is nothing left, or are they choosing to continue the Australian tradition of stupidity and apathy? Sure, we all know salts of the earth fighting the good fight, but today there is no excuse for everyone not being aware of the mass corruption of the swampland that is Australian politics.
