Few Quotes On Power And Order

From The State of Africa by Martin Meredith, p476

Most Somalis welcomed the Americans, expecting them to disarm the militias and restore order in the city. The militias for their part indicated they did not intend to give the Americans any trouble. Both Aideed and Mahdi accepted the American presence as a fait accompli, hoping they could use it to their advantage. Two days after the landing, the chief US envoy, Robert Oakley, a former ambassador to Somalia, engineered a public rapprochement between Aideed and Mahdi. At their first meeting in more than a year, they embraced on an old tennis court in front of the world’s media.

From the start, however, the American strategy was inherently flawed. In order to ensure ‘zero causalities’, they accorded Aideed and Mahdi a prominent role, treating them almost as partners in the exercise, elevating them in status and legitimacy just when their own authority was on the wane. Far worse, instead of using the initial period of goodwill that their arrival had generated to tackle the problem of arms control, they allowed Aideed, Mahdi and other warlords to keep their arsenals intact in designated compounds. No attempt was made to round up heavy weapons, let alone disarm the militias. On Day two, when an army patrol arrested a group of Aideed’s gunmen loading up an arsenal of weapons in a building near the US embassy, army commanders instructed the patrol leader to let them go. From then on, the militia leaders knew they were untouchable. Only piece-meal efforts were ever made to locate and destroy arms caches. Many Somalis concluded that Operation Restore Hope was little more than a cynical deal between the US and the warlords to allow the US to withdraw with minimum difficulty once relief supplies were assured. But it was a strategy that would come to haunt the Americans.

Arrians history of Alexander’s campaigns p59

When Alexander had once lost his horse in the territories of the Uxii, he caused a proclamation to be issued throughout all the country, that unless they would restore him, he would put them all to the sword; upon which he was immediately restored: so dear was he to Alexander, and so terrible was Alexander to the Barbarians.

From Cosa Nostra by John Dickie, p175

Militaristic, decisive, tought, spectacular: the siege of Gangi is rembered in more or less the way the Fascist propaganda wanted it to be, the way it very deliberately styled its war on organized. When mafia defectors began to talk to Giovanni Falcone in the 1980s, it became clear that mafiosa themselves had similar memories of the fascist years. Catania man of honour Antonio Calderone, who turned pentito in 1986, revealed that, more than forty years after its fall, Benito Mussolini’s Fascist regime remained a scar on the mafia’s folk memory.

The music changed [under Fascism]. Mafiosa had a hard life. Many were sent to a prison island, just from one day to the next…Mussolini, Mori, the people in charge of justice, they did this: they gave mafiosi five years of internal exile without trial, the maximum. And when those five years were over they issued a decree and gave them five more. Just like that. A decree! Five more years… After the war the mafia hardly existed any more. The Sicilian Families had all been broken up. The mafia was like a plant they don’t grow any more. My uncle Luigi, who had been a boss, an authority, was reduced to stealing to earn a crust.

From Cosa Nostra by John Dickie, p385

Before setting off, he [General Alberto Dalla Chiesa] made it clear to his political masters in Rome that he had no intention of being soft on the mafia’s political wing. A few short month after his arrival in Palermo, a firing squad of about a dozen mafiosi blocked the road in front of his car in via Carini and machine–gunned him, his young wife , and their escort to death. The day afterwards, someone scrawled on the wall at the scene , ‘Here died the hope of all honest Sicilians’. The funeral was televised live across Italy, and the nation saw the angry crowd throwing coins at the government ministers who attended.

The politicians had failed to give Dalla Chiesa the powers he wanted, and a campaign of journalistic sniping created the distinct impression that he was isolated, as his son explained five days after the murder:

During the fight against terrorism my father was used to having his back covered, to having all the constitutional political parties behind him – first among them the DC. This time, as soon as he arrived in Palermo, he understood that a part of the DC was not prepared to cover him. More than that it was actively hostile.

BBC article regarding the London riots.

“When the riots started it was almost like a carnival atmosphere, and people have described it to me as a sense of release.”

“Ken Hinds, who has worked as a mediator between warring gangs in north London, said he thought relationships with the police had “got worse” since Mr Duggan’s death.

Mr Hinds, who was at the Broadwater Farm riot in Tottenham in 1985, said he believed more riots were possible because of the way “the youth are treated by police”.”

Gender Mainstreaming blowback

As I highlighted in my previous post, the media is acting in a social engineering role to push the hard left feminism being dumped on the UK by the EU. One major method is to make examples of people who are not in synch with the new gender equality ideology (message amplification).

Take for example this Daily Mail story regarding a minister’s aide who made negative comments regarding feminists. This is in no way a national story, however it is clear the newspaper has a remit to look for such incidents to blow out of proportion, and to make an example of the people involved. Or a more recent example is that of Richard Scudamore and his private emails.

Then we have the comments from a neuroscientist by the name of Gina Rippon who made a major statement regarding Male and Female brains being identical. Proffesor Rippon has stated that the male and female brain differs only due to the “drip,drip,drip” of gender stereotyping. This obviously is pure rubbish, and is not fact, but one of the ingrained tactics of the Cathedral is the use of “science” as a validator of ideology. Gina Rippon’s appallingly stupid theory is already being used to justify a boycott of reviewing gender specific literature by the Independent.

In addition to the nonsense regarding biological similarity between the sexes, another interesting development in Gender Mainstreaming is the reported presentation of a private members bill by Bill Cash, whos aim is to put gender equality at the heart of the UK government’s development aid.

Apparently there was

“Deep confusion in the Commons when Bill Cash, the famously Eurosceptic MP, went off piste and proposed a new law which had nothing to do with Europe”

This seems very noble of the right honorable Bill Cash, everyone’s favorite decade long EU and government rebel…except… the premise of gender equality being made central to foreign aid is part of the EU’s remit. So did Bill Cash dream this up himself in an extraordinary coincidence? Or did the Government request he put it forward as a private members bill as a means to hide its origin? I don’t think I need to answer that one, but this highlights the charade that is opposition government in the cathedral system, and gives a glimpse into how consciously aware they are of the mechanisms available. It also demonstrates the power behind foreign aid – the receiving countries were not consulted were they? where’s the democracy there progressives?

While this (obviously not EU linked [sarc]) action of Bill Cash may seem wonderful to the cathedralites, unfortunately, it appears to have serious ramifications which the media are either not reporting, or misrepresenting.

Take for example Nigeria and its recent law regarding banning same sex marriage, or Uganda’s outlawing of homosexuality, or how about Putin’s banning of homosexual propaganda?, or India’s re-banning of homosexuality? These all appeared at the same time, and I’m sure other countries around the world will follow suit. The media have pathetically tried to variously blame evangelical preachers, and colonialism to divert attention, but what seems to be clearly the root cause is the EU and the UN leading a push for gender deconstruction based on liberal creationism and a complete disregard of logic, science or reality.

It’s an example of a group within the Cathedral using their clout to push an issue.

It’s so bad, they have even halted loans designed for the Uganda health care system.

Gay marriage? or health care for sick people? – gay marriage wins hands down. That’s fucked up.

This, then, as I have discussed before, present a massive area of research for anti-cathedral study regardless of your position on gay marriage. It covers it all – NGOistan, public perception manipulation, aid-colonialism, military intervention on the basis of humanitarianism (R2P) – and it is running live as we speak.

A Troublesome Inheritance

One of the central tenets of the liberal progressives system, if not the single most important part, is that man is a blank slate at birth. This, in effect, turns Man into God. Man therefore creates Man (nurture). This fundamentally results in the mind, and the person becoming a thing of supernatural essence (a thing created from nothing). It is what categorically exposes the religiosity of the liberal progressive.

The central effect of this is the fanatical belief in equality. Not equality of opportunity, but solid, unyielding equality of the person beneath the skin. Beneath the skin of the man or woman, science breaks down and the mystical takes over.

Take gender for example, despite the very obvious fact that men have a XY chromosome pair, and women have an XX chromosome pair, feminist sub- cult segments of the progressive religion assert that there is no difference between men and women.  All sections of the progressive religion now claim that the brain does not differ between thesexes, and nor does it differ between races. The human brain is in effect a kernal of immanence. The line from which this can be drawn is from Spinoza, through Hegel , Marx and then all the various idiots of the post-structuralists, post-moderist, neo-marxist etc schools of “thought”. This is paralleled in the Rousseau and Quaker/ Protestant traditions.

As an ideology which claims to be steeped in reason and science, this is unacceptable. You cannot claim your strength and legitimacy as being anti irrationality and anti theology, whilst failing to acknowledge the function of genetics and inheritance of behavior.

With regard to homosexuality, I have previously discussed how the failure to even acknowledge the central importance of reproduction in a discussion of it is beyond ridiculous. Now, with regard to race, the release of  A troublesome inheritance is helping to expose the inherent ridiculousness of claiming all of humanity is identical apart from superficial differences.

From Tibetans who have develop greater ability to survive at high altitudes, to the spread of lactose tolerance, the human race is varied and has been subject to localised selection pressure (and is still being subjected to selection pressures).

One of the more interesting manners in which these differences are expressed is in the area of intelligence. As you can see from this following map, the differences in average IQ are pronounced.

Race and IQThis difference is largely expressed in economic performance and civilisational complexity. To be sure, there are other factors in play such as kinship structures, but IQ is king. This is not to say all member of a racial group have the same IQ – it’s a matter of statistics. As the bell curve shifts towards a higher mean intelligence, a larger proportion of the population will be represented in the higher IQ thresholds. As Cochrane et al explain with the example of the Ashkenazim Jews in The 10,000 year explosion

“For example, if the mean northern European IQ is 100, the mean Ashkenazi IQ is 110, and the standard deviation in both populations is 15, then the number of northern Europeans with IQs greater than 140 should be 4 per 1000, whereas 23 per 1,000 Ashkenazim should exceed the same threshold, about a sixfold difference”


iQ test EUSo while the average IQ of the Indian sub continent is 81 according to Lynn and Vanhanen in IQ and the wealth of nations, this does not mean all Indians have an IQ of 81; this is merely the mean. It means a lower proportion of these groups will be represented in the higher thresholds. But they are represented (and the case of India is very much complicated).

However, this average difference between groups is so pronounced that the leftist have created industries which feed off it. Their claims that low IQ is caused by poverty is a case of claiming wet streets cause rain (someone forgot to tell China), their claims that poverty is the result of racism, and the subsequent targeting of economically successful groups (white males in particular) is nothing short of a 21st century version of the blood libel/ Nazi Jew conspiracy.

The fear from some quarters regarding the danger if this knowledge became accepted in the mainstream is not misplaced. The danger would not be from people now labelled as “racists” but actually from the very same people who have accepted the lies fed by our society en mass regarding the rainbow nations being created through mass immigration. All those who fanatically cheer multiculturalism despite its clear faults, all who clamp down on any news story depicting ethnic minorities as anything other then angels, all those who manically chase “racists” to the ends of the earth – these people have atrocities in their veins. To quote Voltaire –

“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities”

The same mass of people who were susceptible to the excess of religion, were susceptible to the excesses of socialism, and now the excesses of liberalism and it’s attendant anti-racist ideologies. These anti-racist ideologies are based on absurdity, and the Human Biodiversity (HBD) school of thought is making this more abundantly clear with each passing day.

I can only propose that some form of psychometric testing is conducted to isolate those among society who are susceptible to the hive mind, mob behaviour and to irrational beliefs in absolutes (racial purity, class dissolution, equality etc). Disenfranchisement of these sections of the populace and a bar on entry, or involvement in any way, in politics and policy is vital for all sections of society. The other option is a complete removal of democracy and it’s mob corralling nature, as race differences are a very easy subject for the mob leaders to mobilise the mob around.

The Cathedral in Action

A staple of Neo-Reactionary thought is the belief, or should I really say observation, that there is no real democracy. The social political system of the modern world consists of the media, civil service and the university system, and collectively they are termed the Cathedral. The politicians are mere window dressing, they have zero influence on anything, but are present to give the illusion of democracy in the same manner in which the Roman senate existed despite the power really being in the hands of the Emperor.

This Cathederal is populated by people who are liberal progressive. The system self selects people of this type, who then design constantly more and more progressive policies and decisions which are implemented without democratic oversight. The Cathedral is impervious to change. Any politician who does manage to get elected and attempts to combat the Cathedral fails because the only way is to liquidate the entire structure.

It is called the Cathederal, because it is also a tenant of Neo-Reactionary thought that the liberal progressive is in effect a Calvinist atheist Christian sect. The entire belief system of the liberal progressive is in effect hyper atheist Protestantism, only with some minor, but devastating, differences which I will discuss in another post.

In summary, liberal progressiveness and all it’s variants is a religion. The media, civil service and university system is its cathedral.

To demonstrate the Cathedral in action, I want to highlight a funny little term called Gender Mainstreaming.
diversity gender equalityGender Mainstreaming is fundamentally an international policy of trying to force the acceptance, normalization and goals of feminists and gender ideologues onto the populace. The policy includes homosexual marriage, female equality, transgender normalization and alteration of what is considered correct gender behavior. It has been designed by university and government “intellectual experts” at the United Nations and the worlds university systems, and has been co-ordinated and disseminated by the UN, EU and the USA. Consider this UN, EU, USA government triumvirate as the St Peter’s Basilica to the national Cathedrals.

This particular example of the Cathedral in action began in 1995 at the UN’s Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing with the introduction of “Gender mainstreaming” as a policy goal.  This was followed up on the 21 February 1996 with the EU Commission issuing a communication detailing their adherence.

Since this date, there have been numerous reports and plans conducted by both the UN and EU, which appear to have culminated on 1 May 1999 with the Treaty of Amsterdam in which a binding legal basis for the strategy of Gender Mainstreaming at EU level was introduced by an amendment to article 3 of the Treaty of Maasstricht 1992.

The amendment (see page 23) states that

“In all the activities referred to in this Article, the Community shall aim to eliminate inequalities, and to promote equality, between men and women”

This is complemented by an amendment to article 2 of the Treaty of Maastricht, which states

“The Community shall have as its task, by establishing a common market and an economic and monetary union and by implementing common policies or activities referred to in Articles 3 and 4, to promote throughout the Community”

According to a 1998 Council of Europe Report the aim of Gender Mainstreaming is

“the (re)organisation, improvement, development and evaluation of policy processes. Gender mainstreaming is a political process as well as a technical one. It involves new ways of devising and approaching policies, shifts in organisational or in institutional culture and will lead to changes in societal structures”

Societal structure would include marriage and the family. They are seeking to alter what it means to be a man, woman, husband and mother. In the relevant literature, this is referred to as “transformation”, in which there are new standards for everyone replacing the segregated institutions and standards associated with masculinity and feminity.

To achieve these progressive goals that have not been agreed by the electorate or presented to them in any way, the Cathedral will use the same tactics it always does – propaganda, threats, obfuscation and lies. Central to this part of the system is the media which is nothing more then a branch of the Cathedral.

In this 1998 report there is an interesting summary of the Cathedral’s means of operation.

Education is a key target for gender equality as it involves the ways in which societies transfer norms, knowledge and skills. It is crucial that the education systems and all elements of these systems (teachers, schools, textbooks, research institutes and so on) empower both girls and boys, and take care in counterbalancing the existing gender hierarchies. Media professionals can be a target here too, as they have a very powerful position in the transfer and consolidation of norms and knowledge.”

Translated into non jargon, this means the Cathedral will target children with education, and adults through journalists, newspapers and TV.

The education has already begun in the UK and Europe, see here, here and here.

The media education has been well underway as well, see here, here, here.

To push the policy, pressure groups and NGOs (akin to fascist brown shirts) will be employed to act as

“watchdogs, making sure that gender equality as a goal and mainstreaming as strategy remain (high) on the political agenda.”

for examples of this, see here and here.

On a further post, I will highlight some of the ways in which this policy highlights how schizophrenic the western governmental system is, and how this policy is having massive unforeseen ramifications.

Homosexuality as a Result Of the Pathogen

There are lots of instances where pathogens create behavioral changes in animals.

One of the authors of this blog cites the example of a toxoplasma which causes mice to become sexually attracted to cat urine, but apparently there are a lot of other examples. Off the top of my head, I know of a species of fungus which hijacks the brains of insects in the Thailand rainforests, directs them to go high up into the tree tops, and then forces them to grip the leaves with their mandibles (Ophiocordyceps unilateralis). The insects then die and the fungus feeds off the carcass. The resultant spores become more effectively dispersed given the new found height of the fungus.

On another post, the author even suggests such pathogens, or parasites, could be a factor in animal domestication. The premise being that wild species with a toxin, or parasite like tapeworm, develops an unusual docility, or warmth towards humans in the same way the mice did to cat urine – these then become prime candidates for domestication. There is also the potential that the Flu makes us more social as a way of increasing infection rates.

Homosexuality demonstrates no Mendelian heredity; and homosexuality makes no sense as a genetic survival trait. This is eventually going to have to be dealt with by our liberal-progressive society as their whole bogus belief system is based on the claim of rationality. The human being is either an animal subject to the same rules as the Animal Kingdom and therefore homosexuality is a result of something going seriously biologically astray, or, humans are not subject to the same laws of nature in the liberal-progressive model, and they will have to finally admit their belief system is rooted in a belief in the supernatural.

The only escape route I can see, is a complete submersion of any science around the issue, and reliance on religious devotion to the present b*ll*cks beliefs (see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil). That, and utter false nonsense being spouted by anthropology experts e.g a tribe in papa new guinea once had a gay man babysit for a bit and this demonstrates human eusociality – as if human society is comparable to a termite mound.

Modern anthropology is clearly an utter joke. Apparently one of the more eminent among them tried to link Catalhoyuk with modern Wiccans. Words fail me.

Expect more of the nutters to come out of the woodwork to back up equality based on a non existent human behavior from 3,000+ years ago that they can’t prove. Especially given the current Gender Mainstreaming process effecting the world. Thanks UN, USA and EU.

Thanks a lot.

On a further note, I highly recommend the West Hunter Blog. Every post is fascinating.
