Because I grew up in the era of the Space Shuttle, when most toys for boys were plastic space rockets, soldiers, and Star Wars dolls, I wanted to be an astronaut. I even begged my dad to send me to “Space Camp.” But once I realized the actual probability of becoming an astronaut were about the same as winning the lottery, I switched over to Fireman for a while.
Firemen are cool because they have the cool hats and firetrucks are awesome – they are so long they have TWO drivers, one in the front and one in the back. Plus, Firemen live in the Firehouse and when the alarm comes in, they literally slide down a pole, just like Batman and Robin. Also Firemen are heroes to everyone because they save the women and children and then go back for the puppies and kittens.
But something I struggled with was the concept of “Volunteer Fireman.” Volunteers do their jobs for free, but Firemen get paid – in big cities, with strong unions, they get paid quite well. So how are they “volunteers?”
The answer, of course, is that traditionally firemen were conscripted. In unorganized areas, literally everyone got in a long line and passed pails of water to each other from the river to the fire – a quite fascinating social organization, by the way. If you were an able bodied male, and there was a fire, you were essentially required to help put the fire out. But no one really had to be coerced, because a fire is a threat to everyone, and in pre-industrialized European Christian societies, people love their neighbors as themselves, because their neighbors are themselves.
Supposedly in the era of “private” fire departments, if you weren’t a paying subscriber to the fire service, they would just contain the fire from spreading to paying customers while watching your house burn. Considering the fire fighting is a very dangerous job, this is hardly just “greed” – you’re the greedy one for not subscribing to the fire service.
But eventually cities and counties figured the best way to do this is just to tax everyone, thus making everyone a subscriber to the fire service. Libertarians will complain, but libertarians are just obtuse autistics that like to argue. Mike Enoch once pointed out that when he was a libertarian, it was really just a game he was playing, a “puzzle to solve.” So, someone asks, “what about roads?” Then you would come up with a verbal quasi-argument about how roads would work under Libertarian principles. Note that this is just meaningless verbiage, Libertarians ideologues don’t actually do anything. Ayn Rand didn’t build any buildings, she wrote about fantasy libertarian men who did. It’s easy to write ideology, it’s difficult to actually do things in the real world.
According to Enoch, he never “really believed” it, it was a game, a kind of pilpul – betraying the Jewish roots of Libertarianism, frankly. So, you can’t carry anything on the Sabbath, except within the walls of your house, because that would be work. So what to do? Run a wire around the city and call that a “wall” now you are not inconveniened by Yahweh’s Laws. In Bill Maher’s Religulous, the Rabbis say that pushing a button on the phone, which connects an electric circut, which is like making a fire, counts as work, thus you can’t dial a phone on the Sabbath. But if the buttons are already pushed, the circut is already closed, and you unpush the button, thus opening the circuit, it’s putting out a fire, which is allowed, presumably for emergency purposes.
So the clever Jew has outsmarted Yahweh, and Yahweh is happy because clever Jews are his chosen people. Or, for the more frum, Yahweh must have put the loophole there on purpose for you to discover it, so it’s actually following the law by doing just as Jesus accused them of doing, “making the Law of none effect.”
Look, folks, we cannot live with these people.
According to a few commenters on the Reddit “Flat Earth” section, no one “really believes” the earth is flat, it’s a game to see if you can bamboozle people or just get internet points for coming up with a plausible sounding explanation for obvious falsehoods. Competitive bullshit, in other words.
Some Swedish comedian made a TV series about thier version of “political correctness.” All the ones about immigration and Islam were banned from Youtube, but the one about feminism was allowed to remain. The series had such an impact the Swedish Center for Gender, which is where all the nonsense came from, was shut down when their government money was suspended due to the program.
So there’s two funny scenes. The comedian goes and interviews a construction company. The guy who runs it is proudly showing off their ultra-high-tech equipment, bragging about their most complex projects, and praising his engineers as Sweden’s best. The comedian asks him, do you have any women working here? He says, oh sure, Lajla is our office manager. The comedian presses, do you have any women working on the construction crew, as engineers. The manager looks surprised that someone would ask such a stupid question, and says, well, no, construction is pretty much a man’s job, isn’t it?
The second interview is with the head nurse at a hospital. He films the nurses sitting around the lunch table talking, and asks the head nurse, do you have any men working here? She says, oh sure, we occasionally get a man doing nursing, but they never stay long. Either they go on to become doctors, or they just can’t handle the environment and move to something else. The comedian asks, why? The Head Nurse says, well, nursing is all about taking care of people, it’s just something that women do better than men.
Why the hell would a woman want to be a fireman? Because she wants the masculine prestige we give to men that perform these vital services – or the prestige we give to soldiers and police, out of simple fear if we don’t kiss their asses they will kill us. It’s a form of transgenderism, it comes from the same place that causes men to want to dress like women and get a sexual thrill out of being mistaken for a woman.
It is important to not see these things as “opposites,” per se. A woman dressed up in a fireman’s outfit is sexy, a man dressed up like a woman is grotesque.
On a more complicated level, cross dressing and transgenderism are forms of magic – in the anthropological sense, not the supernatural sense. Modern LGBT turned homosexual men from respected Catholic priests and admired artists and writers like Michelangelo and Oscar Wilde into effeminate, grotesque parodies riddled with disease and a hatred for their own families, communities, and the shock troops of the Anti-White movement.
Similarly, modern industrial society has leveraged the magic of transgenderism, and turned it to a very unsexy purpose.
When your girlfriend wears your shirt, it’s sexy. The calendar at the Firehouse with all the sexy women posing in firefighter costumes is sexy. But an actual woman LARPing as a Fireman – or a soldier – is grotesque. Since women are not men, you have to lower the physical standards. When a man dies saving women and children from the fire, it’s a tragedy, but he is a hero and joins the Glorious Ancestors in Valhalla. When a woman dies while pretending to be a Fireman, it’s just a tragedy. The best case scenario is some children lose their mother, the worst case scenario she never had children at all, thus her line dies.
So in high school I dated this half-Greek girl. She had an older brother who – rightly – hated me at first, but warmed up when he realized I wasn’t just “using” his sister for sex. This guy was “macho” is every way. In fact, he was dating a high school senior who was the stereotype of the Hot Blonde Cheerleader, who I never admitted I lusted after more than I lusted after his little sister.
But this guy did what a lot of these Eastern Med guys do. He wore fancy necklaces, he had both ears pierced and he sat around painting his nails with clear nail polish. In the American context, these are all feminine gender expressions, but on him it just highlighted his masculinity, his machismo, and made him sexy enough to date the Head Cheerleader. Incidentally, I found myself in a relationship exactly like theirs later in life. They hated each other and the more they hated each other, the more they wanted to fuck each other’s brains out. When he expressed his love and devotion to her, she responded by “taking a break” and “dating” other guys. When he told her to fuck off and started “dating” other girls, she would scream and cry and throw things at him and ten minutes later they were boinking each other’s brains out.
So once my … “girlfriend” if that is what you want to call it … and I were meeting up with our girlfriend for a night on the town, and I was viciously trolling her as we got into the cab. She would then start in on me. Then, in the front seat, our girlfriend started laughing hysterically and says, “oh, I finally get it – this is your foreplay, isn’t it?” We just sort of looked out the window and didn’t answer, because we knew that it was. It’s like being in a codependent relationship. You know it’s not healthy, but it feels so good how can it be wrong?
Now here comes the swerve.
Who are the Ten Percenters?
Are they like the Five-Percent Nation, the “Nation of Gods and Earths (NGE/NOGE) … a cultural movement influenced by Islam founded in 1964 in the Harlem section of the borough of Manhattan, New York City, by Allah the Father, who was previously known as Clarence 13X and, before that, Clarence Edward Smith.”
No, not quite.
Are they the Three Percenters, the “American and Canadian far-right, anti-government militia movement.”
Musonius Rufus of Identity Dixie, one of my favorite podcasters, has what he calls the “outside the system strategy.” Considering he is a conservative, Protestant white Southerner, and a Freemason, his system reflects his own identity and culture.
In a recent podcast, his friend, a young man just starting out, is protesting how expensive land is, even in the very rural South where he is from. It’s virtually impossible for a young man, just starting out, to buy any land, even undeveloped rural land, the kind where traditionally a young man could buy and build his own house on.
Musonius Rufus explains that the only way to do this is via a kind of Land Trust. Before the Sanhedrin declared restricted covenants unenforceable, one could buy a small plot of land next to others of your kind and no one could pull a Libertarian and defect, selling their plot to an outsider or worse, someone actively hostile.
But owning property collectively is very legally complicated and culturally can lead to conflicts. Since the legal system is under complete enemy control, the usual American way of dealing with conflicts, the court, doesn’t work any more than asking your worst enemy to arbitrate a dispute between you and your brother, he will of course rule in the way that is the worst for both parties.
But there does exist an institution in American society with a very wide legal berth and a huge cultural “grandfather clause.” That is, of course, the local Church assembly.
Now the “real Christians” will complain that the Church assembly gets the 501(c)(3) tax exemption, thus can’t be involved in “politics.” The IRS is always on the lookout for some White pastor telling his congregants to not vote for a pro-abortion politician; Black churches, and Jewish synagogues and Muslim mosques are completely exempt from this and do politics all the time. But Whites are held to a different standard.
But ask yourself, why SHOULD the local congregation be telling people who to vote for? Why would the local church assembly, in fact, be involved in politics at all?
To find this out, you would do well to read Guaranteed Pure: The Moody Bible Institute, Business, and the Making of Modern Evangelicalism by Timothy Gloege.
American evangelicalism has long walked hand in hand with modern consumer capitalism. Timothy Gloege shows us why, through an engaging story about God and big business at the Moody Bible Institute. Founded in Chicago by shoe-salesman-turned-revivalist Dwight Lyman Moody in 1889, the institute became a center of fundamentalism under the guidance of the innovative promoter and president of Quaker Oats, Henry Crowell. … At the core of their “corporate evangelical” framework was a modern individualism understood primarily in terms of economic relations.
Conservative evangelicalism and modern business grew symbiotically, transforming the ways that Americans worshipped, worked, and consumed. Gilded Age evangelicals initially understood themselves primarily as new “Christian workers”–employees of God guided by their divine contract, the Bible. But when these ideas were put to revolutionary ends by Populists, corporate evangelicals reimagined themselves as savvy religious consumers and reformulated their beliefs. Their consumer-oriented “orthodoxy” displaced traditional creeds and undermined denominational authority, forever altering the American religious landscape. Guaranteed pure of both liberal theology and Populist excesses, this was a new form of old-time religion not simply compatible with modern consumer capitalism but uniquely dependent on it.
It may or may not be a coincidence that the Moody Bible Institute promoted Christian Zionism and the Scofield Reference Bible, but what is more relevant here is that MBI was a “Para-Church” institution that created “Christian consumer products.”
The small town Protestant minister, especially of the low church varieties that may not have even had their own seminary, and almost certainly had no Greek, Latin or Hebrew, would receive a free copy of the Scofield Reference Bible, the King James text accompanied by an “interpretation” that was clearly based more on the interests of Samuel Untermeyer and the man who “converted” him, and “John J. Ingalls, an aging Jewish lawyer who had been sent to Atchison by the “Secret Six” some thirty years before to work the Abolitionist cause.”
So the pastor could simply preach from Scofield, read a passage of the King James, then paraphrase from the “interpretation” in the footnotes. He needed no other book to prepare a sermon.
Similarly, the Moody Bible Institute, based on the principles of consumer capitalism, provided pastors, churches, and even laymen with “Christian consumer products” – “Christian” books, “Christian jewelry,” and most importantly, “Christian tracts” – sales literature, based on the cutting edge door to door and mail order sales tactics of consumer capitalism, meant to grow your church the way a business grows its customer base. The more customers, the more money, the more prestige.
A Church congregation based on the sales tactics of consumer capitalism is a very different beast than a congregation that simply serves a settled community.
But, if you are not interested in growing your congregation by converting the heathens or “sheep stealing” – raiding other congregations for converts – if your pastor isn’t interested in selling books and tapes and getting his own TV show, the congregation can, in fact, stay out of politics and instead perform a very different function.
First, your church grows organically as the congregants get married and have their own children. There is no need to look for outsiders. You can have very strict requirements that simply keeps out anyone you don’t want, and you use perfectly theological reasons for doing so. Calvinist Limited Atonement and Double Predestination are just sitting there, waiting to use.
Second, you have no need to get involved in politics, or do any sort of electioneering, because everyone is part of the same community and vote independently for their own common interests.
Thusly, third, you can leverage your 501(c)(3) tax to own property collectively, your church building, your church park, available for church families to use, your graveyard to honor your ancestors, and increasingly importantly, the school that your children attend and even, with the right polity, in cooperation with other congregations, your own universities and hospitals.
The Ten Percenters are the people who pay their tithes, 10% of their gross income, tax-free into this institution, this commonweal, this civil society institution. Not only is your tithe tax deductible, but church property is typically exempt even from local property taxes.
The First Amendment’s guarantee of Freedom of Religion has very strong case law behind it and a lot of legal precedents in its favor. Especially, if you keep everything private and not a public accommodation the Civil Rights laws do not really apply to you. The only possible reason you would want a public accommodation is if your denomination is actually a business. If you rent the chapel for the weddings of non-church members, you are running a public accommodation and thus you will eventually have to Bake the Cake. But if you only perform the weddings for the children of your members families, you can tell everyone else to buzz off.
The second institution is the Fraternity; the Lodge, the Mannerbund.
Liberia was founded to resettle the African slaves after the Civil War. The slaves who actually went simply recreated the White society they had grown up in, but with themselves as the Masters and the indigenous Africans as the Slaves. So, in the capital of Liberia, the Freemason lodge sits across the street from the Legislature. All important decisions are made, in private, in the Lodge. Then the lodge members walk across the street and vote to make it official. The indigenous can vote, if they want, but it doesn’t matter because they are organized in public while the Brothers are organized in private.
The saying goes, the Left likes to invade an institution, kill it, gut it, and wear its skin suit while demanding the respect the institution earned.
That can’t happen if you don’t let them in in the first place. The only reason you ever expanded your membership non-organically in the first place is because you were running a consumer capitalist business, not a Church and not a Lodge.
You were a woman pretending to be a man, or a man pretending to be a woman. The magic worked as transgender magic does. You cashed the check, thus you had to bake the cake, or keep your mouth shut as ethnic, racial, and cultural outsiders were allowed in because the only color you cared about was the Green.
So – stop doing that. Private, non-profit, and religious institutions can do more or less whatever they want, as long as they are not trying to convert the public or provide public accommodations. That 10% grows quite quickly, especially if you are leveraging that other traditional institution, the Credit Union, which is a non-profit financial institution for members only.
This is passivism as the Neo-Reaction claimed to advocate. It is the exact opposite of dressing up in a costume, strapping on a plastic helm and a fashy armband, and jumping in front of the TV cameras to get your ugly face on TV. That is itself a form of transgenderism, your wearing the skinsuit of a long dead institution, but instead of parasiting off of the respect that institution had, you are simply redirecting the negative connotations onto yourself.
Who would do such a thing? A narcissist who enjoys masochistic verbal bottoming, that’s who. Dirty talk, in other words. Some people like it. The idea that political activism is a type of sexual fetish has been long understood. There is a fetish called “race play” where people enjoy being verbally abused by being called racial slurs. It’s just a variation of a gal getting turned on by being called a “bad girl” and a “dirty slut.” You actually want to stand around on the street corner and have Antifa scream verbal abuse at you? That is a sexual fetish – it’s time for “the right” to recognize that.
If you really want a Restoration, if you really want a community, if you really want to eventually take power, you must be a passivist. The two steps to passivism are:
- Become worthy.
- Accept power when it is offered.
Because if there really is a collapse, hyperinflation, a lost war, race riots, supply chain disruptions, if the government really fell …
… people will naturally turn to the men that have successfully built institutions that provide the necessities of life and the community that individuals and families can thrive in. Because the “government-in-waiting” is already there with their own institutions, their own schools, their own hospitals, and their own network of men bound to each other as brothers, able to put out the fire and Accept Power.
And if that day never comes, well, guess what? You still have your own institutions, your own schools, your own collective property, your own storehouses, and even your own Moose Lodge where you can drink at the bar and socialize without being a “public accommodation” and accepting outsiders who just want to parasite on what you have built.
So it is a win/win situation for everyone except for the transgendered fetishist narcissists who want to be seen as “activists.”
And if you’re not a Christian and you can’t just take it on faith? Well, you can do the same thing with paganism, or even atheism. Look at the Unitarian-Universalists, the only “religion” in America that is richer and more educated than Jews.
Of course all this requires work, patience, compromise, wisdom, and it’s not flashy and won’t get you on TV – in fact, if you get on TV, you’re doing it wrong.
I’ll believe there even exists a “Right” when I see someone doing these things.
