The Time for Justice: A Repost

Really, I’m just copy/pasting two videos from American Vision because I liked them so much.

Thought Crimes in England… and Disinheritance

The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.  He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: — Deuteronomy 28:43-45

Hate Crimes, Thought Crimes

I would like to put a special emphasis on this part of the video (as quoted below, in TakiMag’s England’s Assisted Suicide )

It is quite clear that not only do the post-WWII cosmopolites who comprise the modern British managerial elite not only have no compassion for England’s poor and abused whites—rather, they actively hate them. The Metropolitan Police’s definition of a “hate crime” is enough to give George Orwell conniptions:

If someone does something that isn’t a criminal offence but the victim, or anyone else, believes it was motivated by prejudice or hate, we would class this as a ‘hate incident’. Though what the perpetrator has done may not be against the law, their reasons for doing it are. This means it may be possible to charge them with an offence.

These vague, slimy and ultimately unquantifiable “hate crime” laws are being used as a psychological cudgel to terrorize indigenous Britons into keeping their mouths firmly shut as they impotently watch everything around them being deliberately destroyed.

The Will of the People

Well, that’s your problem.

The people do not “impotently watch”: they support the current agenda, either by their indifference or their active encouragement. If they wanted a different culture, they would take responsibility to make a different culture.

In general, people get the government they deserve. And the antiChristian — and therefore tyrannical and lawless — attitude of the British (and Western) Ruling Classes are basically backed by the general population, just as (say) the North Korean elite is supported by their general population.

If a mere 3%-5% of a population decide to dump their rulers, those rulers are dumped. Period.

But a price must be paid to ditch the current leadership… and the distant gain must be seen as worth the immediate gain to change the ruling elite. Most of the British population simply don’t think that liberty is worth the price needed to gain it.

Assuming that they value those freedoms — rooted in a locally extinct religion and culture fewer and fewer people can even remember — over the ease and immediate benefits gained by supporting the current system.

If you value a particular culture, a people, a land, a way of life,
then you pay the price to build and promote and protect it.
If you don’t value it… you don’t.

The British lose what they do not value, and gain what they do value.

Simple.

No Free Speech

In 2016, authorities in Telford petitioned British Home Secretary Amber Rudd to launch a Rotherham-style investigation into the decades of child sex abuse in their town, but they received no response. It is thought, however, that Rudd played a role in preventing 22-year-old conservative YouTuber Laura Southern from entering the UK on March 12.

Southern’s crime was that during a previous trip to the English city of Luton, she’d distributed tongue-in-cheek “LGBT for Islam UK” fliers which were obviously meant to shine a spotlight on leftists’ willful blindness about how Islam routinely blasphemes some of KultMarx’s most sacred of sacred cows. Ignoring the fact that Islam is not a race, the UK Home Office accused Southern of “distribution of racist materials,” said she advocated “Christian extremism,” and concluded that her presence in England “is not conducive to the public good,” and insisted that if her pale-and-frail toes were to graze British soil even for a moment, it would represent “a threat to the fundamental interests of society and to the public policy of the United Kingdom.”

Long, long ago, the United Kingdom abandoned any connection with Biblical Law, and the result is tyranny… as usual.

But again, that is to be expected. “Free speech” is rooted in the prophet’s insistence that the king hear and obey the law of the Greatest King, God.

Moderns don’t believe in the authority of God, King of Kings: only the authority of the King who controls the national armies. As such, they have no need to hear the word of the Lord, and thus, they will do their best to insure that His voice is not heard.

So, no free speech.

Simple.

A Change of Elites

The current atheistic tyranny will be a short-lived phenomenon, though.

The real future can be seen by the opening of ~500 mosques every year in London, and the closing of ~500 churches in that same city.

The atheistic/secularistic ruling class don’t believe in having children, and have no hope for the future. They are only grounded by their hatred for Christianity — THE class marker as of 2018, backed by wealth and academia alike — and a love of immediate pleasure.

The young and committed Muslims of Britain have children and a goal of distant victory: a goal they are willing to make sacrifices for in the here and now.

In time, the Western ruling class and the growing Muslim demographic will come together over their shared hatred of Christ and their shared will of power. The dying party will insure a full transfer of power to the young and hungry…. and that will be that.

In the Long Run: Disinheritance

The story won’t end there: I am confident that Christ will cause even an Arab/Islamic Britain to bend the knee to the cross – just as “post-Saudi” Arabia and Egypt and Iran will, in time.

But by that time, Anglo-Saxon England will be only in the history books, remembered as a cautionary tale of

  1. God and patriotism and liberty, leading to
  2. Evangelism, liberty and increased dominion (land, science, wealth), followed by
  3. Darwinism, empire, racial self-infatuation, and ruinous, costly wars, completed by
  4. Nihilism, self-loathing, collectivism, slavery, foolishness and death.

Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a disgrace to any people.
— Proverbs 14:34, ESV


Appendix: the definition of “Hate Crime” at the Metropolitan Police website:

Hate crimes and hate incidents

In most crimes it is something the victim has in their possession or control that motivates the offender to commit the crime. With hate crime it is ‘who’ the victim is, or ‘what’ the victim appears to be that motivates the offender to commit the crime.

A Hate Crime is defined as “Any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person’s race or perceived race; religion or perceived religion; sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation; disability or perceived disability and any crime motivated by hostility or prejudice against a person who is transgender or perceived to be transgender.”

A Hate Incident is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someone’s prejudice towards them because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender.

Not all hate incidents will amount to criminal offences, but it is equally important that these are reported and recorded by the police.

Evidence of the hate element is not a requirement. You do not need to personally perceive the incident to be hate related. It would be enough if another person, a witness or even a police officer thought that the incident was hate related.

The Rise of the Sub-Creators

(A modified copy of a sci-fi post is below, with an addendum.)

Take the word “Vilani” to mean “no-growth, nothing changes, safety-and-stability first” way of life, and the “First Imperium” to be their kind of government, in the style of the Pharaohs, Ming China, or all the other anti-growth, anti-tech, hard-conservative culture.

You know, like those wicked servants who buried their talents rather than take the slightest risk of loss – and so rob their Master of any growth whatsoever to better protect their own faithless, fearful skins.

[My additions for this post are in brackets.]


Issac Arthur is more optimistic than the title of the video suggests.

That being said, some of his concepts are Just So Vilani:

Once you max out a planet to its comfortable population, people wanting kids need to move, people wanting to climb ladders need to move, people bored with Earth need to move, people who want a bigger home and more land need to move, and so on, while people bored with life presumably let themselves die and probably get replaced either by someone who really wants to live on Earth, complete with the culture on it, or got raised by folks who think a thousand years is a perfectly plausible timeline for an apprenticeship.

[This could be a fine way to insure stagnation — “just follow my example, and never ask why” — or it could be a fine way to teach all the things you can’t put in words, to convey the spirit of your work, and not just the technical aspects.

I suggest that the time we have on earth serves as a hard apprenticeship for high positions later,

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
— Revelations 1:5-6, KJV

and

Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?

“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
    nor be weary when reproved by him.
For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
    and chastises every son whom he receives.”

It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. — Hebrews 12:3-10 (ESV)

God is no slackard. If you expect to serve in His kingdom, expect to pay the price.

First serve well, then rule powerfully” as Jesus modeled for us.

On the other hand… the old multi-century lifetimes were removed after the Noahic flood, so evil would not multiply or mature, but always be cut off. But as the world is more fully redeemed, long lifespans — as predicted in Isaiah — return once again.

Things don’t necessarily have to go that way, but it’s very easy for me to imagine Earth as a bit of an island of relics in a sprawling empire of a billion artificial habitats inside our solar system, itself inside an even more sprawling galactic civilization. Old, rich, and quite possibly obsessive about preserving things.

In other words… Vilani. [A.k.a. A pagan, stagnant vision of the future, rather than the expanding, Dominion-oriented one that Christ showed in His life.]

We try to keep our monuments and historic properties around these days, even though we didn’t live there and experience that. It’s possible they might not value antiques as much because there’s no mystique to them. Odds are the construction crew for Stonehenge might complain less about moving or replacing some of the monoliths than we would, but I think it more likely every house on Earth would start resembling a museum or archeological site.

“Welcome to the heart of the First Imperium!”
[The land of dead men’s bones, and whitened, venerated sepulchers.
God expects much better, from you and from me.]

[…snipped some of the discussion about graves: something genuine immortals won’t have to worry about. I am unsure if Jesus even wants us to preserve His grave, even as a memorial. “Why look for Him among the dead?”]

 

But keeping to modern death rates and grave sizes, notably being 6 foot deep, you would layer the planet with tombs in a million years and we still have 5 billion or so left. If those were perfectly preserved you’d layer the land with tombs 10 kilometers or 6 miles deep. We certainly tend to build on top of ruins, it’s pretty well accepted that whether you build a city on a coast or a hill or river, after a while what you’re mostly building that city on is itself, and all the leftover buildings and garbage of prior generations. And with ultra-strong materials and better technology, I could see a civilizations just locking up someone’s apartment when they died with them in it to never be used again, just visited and maybe not even that.

“The Ancestors Approve.”
“The Traditions have been Upheld.”
[“Let the dead bury the dead.”]

That’s a little bit more plausible than it sounds like too. Ultra-strong materials along with ultra-durable ones and self-repairing ones are likely to be technologies we pursue vigorously and are probably on the table, and have to be taken in the context of Ecumenopolises and Arcologies.

“And nothing ever changed, ever again.”
— the Vilani equivalent of “And they lived happily ever after.”

[Things don’t change much in hell, and not at all in the Lake of Fire.

Just endless pain to put an end to all sinful thought… which, for the damned, is ALL their thinking.

No growth, no change, no future, no power, no hope.

Just eternal failure, eternal agony, eternal powerlessness and futility and waste and worthlessness.

The Second Death.]

However, if there is a civilization around then [a billion years from now], it seems very unlikely they’d not take steps to prevent such events or that the galaxy would be particularly natural anymore.

We can say stellar formation in the galaxy ought to drop off to very little in a trillion years and cease entirely in 100 trillion at most. You can have a lot of civilizations arise in a trillion years, but realistically, unless all civilizations terminate at about our current technological levels – – rather than getting out to the stars – – I wouldn’t expect natural star formation to occur more than maybe a few million years after they left their planet.

Of course, I stand with the Solomani [the Vibrant Living],
and not the Vilani [the Frozen Dead].

  • Things are going to change,
  • We are going to change it,
  • So since things are going to change, let’s change things for the better.

*** The original post ends here ***

Of course, I am assuming that God will not forever limit our Dominion Mandate to just this world. I could well be mistaken… but, humanly speaking, I don’t think so.

[See: the implications of logarithmic growth: not just population wise, but knowledge-wise, and holiness-wise, and the expansion of the Kingdom of God to cover the whole earth, and wherever living men are, inescapably.]

In any case, better to assume greater blessings with greater obedience. Just as I assume that we would have been eventually permitted to lawfully eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil… if we had placed God’s Will above our own drooling lust for power without law or limit.

Unlike Adam, Christ humbled Himself before His Father. Let’s follow Jesus’ example — the example of a winner, and not a loser — and reap the blessings of putting God and His Commandments First, and ourselves and our own will second.

Perhaps we will gain the stars, perhaps not… but we will have the love of God to nurture and build and direct us, His Law inscribed in and on our hearts, His Holy Spirit to guide and advise and strengthen us in the way of righteousness, justice, love, and peace. Christ’s people will be seated on thrones to rule the cities and areas Christ appoints for us.

And that’s worth more than all the burning balls of gas, all the rocks, all the time and space of the entire creation. The greater thing, holiness and obedience, FIRST. The rest, great or small, will be decided by God Himself… and rightfully so.

(And didn’t Christ create the heavens? And aren’t all things under His feet? And shall we not reign with Him, under the authority of the Father and the Son, filled with the Holy Spirit, forever?]

He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. — John 3:31-36, ESV

A Feminist Government

“Sweden did you think I’ve forgotten about you how could I forget about my favorite country the only country to have a feminist government while simultaneously being the rape capital of the continent.”
 I expect Christian women to be a good deal smarter – and far wiser –  than feminists: for one thing, God expects rapists to be executed, not coddled and called victims.

An Idealized World

This video remind me of the best part of what has been lost in the 80s, and what Christian civilization will have to get back. Mainly, the orderliness of the people, the calmness, and the peaceful productive activity.

It’s  wasn’t just in Japan: it could have been found in many, many communities across the West at the time. You won’t find that now: without trust in God, love of each other, the willingness to co-operate together for mutual benefit, and a shared agreement of law, good behaviour, and the value of family, you will only get the  cultural disintegration, strife, hostility, and increasing poverty (spiritually, culturally, and finally economically) all around us.

The current order will fall: a culture that comprehensively hates both God and His Law will not long endure.

Although it can last longer than I would have thought: the Soviet Union stood for decades!

Islam, in contrast, is much more selective in how it rejects God – they have no interest in killing their own children, aren’t interested in mindless top-down centralization (in Sunni Islam), and insist on a supernatural foundation for its law. Unlike the atheists and the communists and the vapid post-modernists, Islam is her for the long haul…

 

Europe’s Dying Masters

From What You Need To Know About Europe’s Elites

No wonder that Europe’s leaders have so little interest in protecting the accomplishments of Western Civilization.

They have abnormally foreshortened time horizons.

From a Washington Examiner op-ed last year:

  • French president Emmanuel Macron has no children.
  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel also has no children.
  • British prime minister Theresa May has no children.
  • Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children.
  • Holland’s Mark Rutte has no children.
  • Sweden’s Stefan Lofven has no biological children.
  • Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel has no children.
  • Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon has no children.
  • Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.

The lack of children is not something incapacitating. But when coupled with an indifference to the debt burdens they are dumping on the children of others, it suggests the outlines of a pathological perspective.

These people aren’t the future, Christian: they’re already dead and gone.

Choose differently.

The Blue Church

I was reading North’s Video: Red State vs. Blue State, Red Pill vs. Blue Pill, and Jordan Peterson’s Role Sure, it’s a good if short read, but what I want to focus on is the video he posted… and the central image on it’s title image, the blue church.

The video does mention the Blue Church, but I took a quick look-see on the internet. A useful article on the Blue Church, and it’s contrast with the Red Religion – can be found on the article Understanding the Blue Church.

Quoted below:

In my Situational Assessment: 2017, I quoted a post from Reddit:

“The Blue Church is panicking because they’ve just witnessed the birth of a new Red Religion. Not the tired old Christian cliches they defeated back in the ’60s, but a new faith based on cultural identity and outright rejection of the Blue Faith.” — /u/notjfao

A number of folks noted that they were not familiar with the concept of the Blue Church and wondered what was meant by it. The Democratic Party? Liberalism? Progressivism? As I mentioned in SA:2017, I had originally lifted the idea wholesale from that Reddit post with only an intuitive sense that it (and its juxtaposition with a Red Religion) was useful and pointed at something real.

In this essay, I dive into the concept. Below I endeavor to provide an answer that is adequate to Deep Code. I believe that the results are well worth the effort, but this is not a simple journey. Few things of importance these days are. If we want to get to the bottom of the contemporary situation, we are going to have to get comfortable going deep.

The abstract is this: the Blue Church is a kind of narrative / ideology control structure that is a natural result of mass media. It is an evolved (rather than designed) function that has come over the past half-century to be deeply connected with the Democratic political “Establishment” and lightly connected with the “Deep State” to form an effective political and dominant cultural force in the United States.

We can trace its roots at least as far back as the beginning of the 20th Century where it emerged in response to the new capabilities of mass media for social control. By mid-century it began to play an increasingly meaningful role in forming and shaping American culture-producing institutions; became pervasive through the last half of the 20th and seems to have peaked in its influence somewhere in the first decade of the 21st Century.

It is now beginning to unravel.

In part it is unravelling because of developing schisms within its master narrative, the Blue Faith. These are important, but they are not the subject of this essay. In this essay, I am focusing on what I think is both much more fundamental and much less obvious: deep shifts in technology and society that are undermining the very foundations of the Church. Shifts that render the Church itself obsolete.

If you are ready for a deep dive, come on in. The water is warm.

[…big, big snip: read the article to see what you’re missing…]

The End is Nigh

There are many reasons why the Blue Church is crumbling. Some of it has to do with an increasing friction among the diverse sub-narratives that have gathered under Blue, particularly where the fundamental incoherence of “identity politics” is reaching a tipping point (and is being pushed into what feels to me like a nihilist endgame by the alt-right). However, while this tension is important, I don’t think it is fundamental. Instead, to identify the real existential threat to the Blue Church, I return to our our two core concepts: technology and complexity.

One primary driver behind the collapse of the Blue Church is the swift replacement of the very mass media it is premised upon with a new symmetric kind of media — the Internet. This new media presents a niche for coherence that is very different from the one that gave rise to the Blue Church. It is a fundamentally different landscape. Like polar bears condemned to extinction by a thawing ice cap, the Blue Church’s days are numbered by the relentless erosion of broadcast mindshare to the new much more symmetrical media of the Internet.

As I discussed in Situational Assessment: 2017, I assign a significant portion of the surprising victory of the Trump Insurgency to the fact that the transfer of power from broadcast to digital has crossed the tipping point.

It is this technological transition that leads me to the conclusion that while the Blue Church (and its allies in the Deep State and the Establishment) can certainly struggle and hold for a while, their day is done. The climate is changing and they must adapt or die.

And then there is the question of complexity. The Blue Church emerged in response to the explosion of complexity of the 20th Century and the capacity of mass media to form a control structure that was adequate to that complexity.

It worked. But the 20th Century didn’t stand still. In fact, it accelerated. In the face of this ongoing acceleration, the Blue Church control structure is no longer adequate. The level of complexity of the 21st Century is simply outside of the control capacity that is possible within the form of the Blue Church. Unless we abandon the Church and move to a new approach, our race into the future will be increasingly out of control.

However, and this is a profoundly important point, we currently know of no form of control structure that is adequate — even in principle.

  1. Our entire approach to managing complex systems like our environment is flawed. Until the late 20th Century we could get away with this flaw because we weren’t powerful enough to matter. This has changed and as Joe Brewer has been writing about beautifully, we need to level up quickly. We need to switch from trying to manage complex systems with complicated control structures and invent entirely new techniques for intrinsically up regulating the complex systems that make up our natural world. We don’t yet know how to do this.
  2. Complex systems that include human beings are different. Unlike atmospheres and nitrogen cycles, people can forecast, strategize and adapt hyper-rapidly to our environment. Dave Snowden calls this anthro-complexity. We have to innovate an entirely new approach to governance that is adequate to the challenging set of problems posed by anthro-complexity. We really don’t know how to do this.
  3. Finally, we have to come to terms with the real nature of technology, the difficult to predict feedback loops of how we affect technology and how it affects us. And then we have to figure out how to navigate the actual consequences of exponential technology — on ourselves and on our lived world. Most people aren’t even prepared to think about how to do this.

In the context of these challenges, the Blue Church is simply in way over its head. The world is just too big and moving too fast for this kind of control hierarchy to keep up — even when it is trying to do its best, it is going to get in the way. Addressing these challenges is going to require the innovation of an entirely new approach to how we collectively make sense of and act in the world.

Quote ends

So dieth the Blue Church.

But the Christian church remains as clueless and as impotent as in the 60’s (…the 1860s…), even as her enemy begins to literally dry up and blow away.

I recommend that Christian laymen don’t waste time, looking for their church authorities to do a thing beside feather their nests and cringe before Establishment figures.

(Yes, I mean the disgusting PC establishment that’s falling apart before our eyes: THAT is who our pastors and priests crawl before. Even the hierarchically-minded, pyramid-of-power Catholics are increasingly disgusted with such raw, craven cowardice!)
