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”.”

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.
