Reality is Never Recognized by Consensus

In many significant ways, this epoch is different from all others. For example, the pervasive phone-zombie disorder or levels of degeneracy that would have appalled the citizens of Sodom & Gomorrah. But, in terms of the average person’s ability to notice important things and do some critical thinking for themselves, I suspect the population is much as it has always been. One of the principal reasons we’re considered “fringe” is the simple fact that the average person is a “rube” or “sheep” to the extent that they’re even paying attention to existential issues at all.

Thus, when we point out the obvious, then apply common sense to our situation, and next do a bit of reasonable extrapolation, it fails to resonate with many individuals who are otherwise intelligent. Here’s rough format for a conversation I’ve had on numerous occasions over drinks with a bunch of different European expats:

The Gist of my Question:

Given the violent disposition of Islam towards non-Muslims (cite one of endless historical or contemporary examples along with Koranic justification), doesn’t it seem like importing a Muslim majority into Western Europe would be a perilous proposition for its dwindling native population? [Take a sip of beer] Especially since your country is nearly insolvent?

The General Answer:

Hatred for Muslims is a big problem in America.

Depending on just how much alcohol I’ve imbibed, I’ll sometimes attempt to press the matter. Almost always, I don’t because using facts and reason to prevail upon these people would be like training my Border Collie to write an email. It’s a fruitless endeavor, so I’d need to drink far more than I should to even embark on it.

So, usually I just let them go back to talking about something like soccer or the idiocy of Donald Trump. Now, bear in mind, these guys are either electrical or mechanical engineers. They’re not employed in professions for the stupid. Yet, while they can be taught to use their high-functioning brains to repair precision industrial equipment, they’re wholly incapable of thinking for themselves when it comes to the pressing issues that will define their lives and the survival of Western Civilization. At any rate, most of them pay little if any attention.

Unless you are fortunate to an extreme degree, I’m sure you could come up with numerous comparable experiences at the drop of a hat. However, highlighting a pervasive lack of critical thinking isn’t the point of this article. What I’m getting at here is that there seems to be a narrow genetic predilection for recognizing reality. This can’t be defined in broad terms like eye color or height.

Take a quick personal inventory. How many family members do you have who either think the opposite of what you do about pressing issues, or never even ponder them in the first place? I must admit that I’m probably the only one of my kin on the same page as you. This is why I feel a great deal of skepticism about the term “Red Pill”. I don’t think it applies unless you grew up in a wonderful, white area far away from reality (please tell me where, because I’m looking to relocate).

If you did, then you’ve accepted the reality exposed by the Alt-Right as a result of abstract intellectual considerations, in much the same way that one might ponder the writings of Plato vs. Arthur Schopenhauer. But, if you grew up in a city with a large black population for example, then what could we possibly help you understand if you couldn’t at least suspect that something was gravely amiss?

Consequently, there seems to be a limited market for realism. If someone can notice the obvious, then we can assist him to fill in the blanks and introduce a broader community. It’s a fundamental prerequisite, because if you weren’t gifted with this predisposition, then no amount of facts and reason will convince you otherwise.

If the world’s white population was an iceberg, the portion with enough common sense to join the Alt-Right would be analogous to the tip. Still, there are enough people with their heads above water to constitute a huge movement. But, the iceberg will just have to drift aimlessly until it gets struck by the Titanic. Only then will the majority, with their heads well below the waves, start paying attention. So, my message is to stay positive until all the delusional idiots you must tolerate on a daily basis get bludgeoned by reality.

  1. I hold the theory that in order for Europe to rise, it first must fall. Only a stint in the third world/minority status abyss will be enough to wake them up. I’m baffled as to why the ongoing terror attacks hasn’t already had that effect but anyway…
    The leftards and normies who reside in Europes inner cities, sip champagne and lattes, and chat among themselves how wonderful diversity is, haven’t yet, for the most part, really been affected by the more negative aspects of islam and diversity….yet!
    When or if Europe does fall, it will, to a degree, be a positive phase as they will finally be forced to wake up and take the required action. Most of the native populace will be on board.
    The Jews especially will be in a HELL of a lot of trouble. They, and the minorities, will be cleaned out permanently.
    I’ll likely live long enough to see Europe fall, but the rise, which could take some decades to eventuate, may be after my time, but I know they WILL retake control.

  2. People avoid the truth because it is ugly and unpleasant, if the truth is uncomfortable, they do not want to know. And, most people will never rise above Gurdjieff’s: “Man number 1 = instinctive-moving center, physical man.”

  3. It is both much more simple and even more profound…

    There is but one “race” of men who desire (P)erfection, ie., objective (S)upremacy.

    This “race” of men is usually called “white (s)upremacy.”

  4. I have thought about the genetic disposition thing a lot. To be honest I am on the fence about whether these people are hopeless or simply….sigh….normal. In history I think most revolutions have happened without much participation from the bulk of the population (aside from extreme revolutions like Cuba). No one recognized the Republican revolution would result in a 5 year civil war, many Germans thought Adolf Hitler was just a bunch of youthful passion, of course the list goes on. It seems like most revolutions have come and gone before most people notice.

    Yes people still need a good awakening. It’s not just earthly affairs, I want people to wake up to reality of their need for a savior and their responsibilities as a human created. People need purpose more than cheering for teams and doping up.

    When I hear people say that cliche “don’t talk politics or religion” I always say to them that’s funny because those are the two most important topics to talk about.

  5. I think if any of us know a leftist, whether related to us, an associate or friend of a friend and we think we can win them over, there are some rules we need to follow:-
    -always talk with them one on one, never when they’re among their comrades.
    -ask them what it is about third world culture that is so special to them.
    -explain why our race and culture are worth preserving.
    -bring up issues close to their heart that we can also relate to. Under Islam, she will have to give up her champagne and love of fashion. She will be a second class citizen as a female. Does she/he love the environment and our beautiful animals? Well….endless immigration will mean more traffic, more houses, more pollution and habitat destruction. And non-whites-particularly Asians and Muslims- hold no concern for either animal welfare, or the environment.
    -explain the Jewish role and how they’re playing right into their hands. Leftists in many Western nations hate the Jews because of lsraels treatment of Palestinians-yes its complicated!

    Finally, leftists are perhaps more likely to be converted over than a normie as the latter possibly just aren’t generally political, and wouldn’t do anything with their new found knowledge.
    Rightly or wrongly, there’s an old saying in political circles:- ‘if you’re conservative when you’re young, you don’t have a heart, if you’re a leftist when you’re older, you don’t have a brain’.
    Its common for a leftist to finally come to their senses.

  6. People we need to understand that bad times will not get people to”wake up.” Rome stands as a perpetual reminder that a people can march to their extinction under moderate bad times.
    We need to strongly push our ideology if we want to keep this land another 150 years.

    • No WAY you’ll keep “THIS” another 150 ! Unite into a very enlarged Confederate States or die. Period. Europe IS falling … so we should invite as many white Christian ones of them we need in The CSA to make up for all the 3rd world s&it balls we’ll be booting out. Not so much from Ukraine and the like … they for some reason don’t seem to “get” the south and that we’re being invaded. Bring in talent and $$$ from South Africa and Europe.

  7. I am not as pessimistic as you are. I believe the vast majority of White people ARE “red-pilled,” but not black-pilled enough or put into such dire straits by the system that they are prepared to engage in lit torch processions while shouting pro-White slogans.

    Even the most liberal of Whites go out of their way to avoid non-Whites even as they espouse Cultural Marxism. And they ALL lead implicitly White lives. And in their dating habits, the vast majority of Whites prefer White sex partners and marry White. Just google OK Cupid.

    I also notice that younger Whites tend to marry and have more children than older Whites, especially in my Echo Boomer age group. The more you get out to the exurbs the more likely you are to see young families with three or four or even five children.

  8. It is often said that there are two kinds of people in the world, those who make things happen and those who watch things happen. It is a little bit more complicated than that. A better analysis would be there are 5 types pf people in the world; those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, those who wonder what happened, those who are not aware of anything happening, and those who deny what just happened. Can we really save both the United States and the white population thereof? What if it came down to a choice between union or preservation? It is said there are 313.9 million people in the United States with the white population being 197.7 million. If we had ten percent of that population on our side we would be 19.77 million strong. If we only has one percent of 197.7 million that would still be 197,000 or one percent of that would be 1970. So we obviously need more than 1 percent of one percent.But if we had 197,000 that would be enough for a professional advocacy group.

    • We have enough people but not enough will to fight. We are intimidated by the word “violence” so we have given a Monopoly on it to our enemies.

  9. “White genocide.”

    “White (s)upremacy…”

    How do both of these “things” exist simultaneously?

    “White” self-annihilation.

    And white (S)upremacy…

    How come these “things” are not self-evident truths?
