Enemy In The Gates

This week a friend of mine made a comment about how pro-Western advocates opposed to soft-invasion via state-sponsored migration can often overlook the internal problems contributing to the debate itself.

I heartily agree. Stuff like this New York Beta Times article and the increasing sexualizing of young children proves his point, and the one I’m about to make.

The stuff we want to preserve is already dead. The American culture we all loved and wanted to live in is gone. You might as well try resurrecting old time radio serials in the hopes kids will put down their XBox.

The barbarians are swarming within the city’s gates, but the city fell before they entered it, for they did not enter in face of great resistance by its defenders. They were welcomed by the decadent and morally degenerate inhabitants who had long been working to destroy everything and anything worth protecting inside their city before throwing the gates open far and wide to all except the only people willing to fight for it.

Like the concluding scene to Orwell’s Animal Farm, it’s impossible to tell which from which; the barbarians and the “civilized.”

I say let them eat each other while we try to build something new that is noble, beautiful, and good.

  1. I am continually impressed by your ability to be succinct and yet significant. It reminds me of the advice of VIctor Hugo: “concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.” This is something I aspire to as well. I would add ‘incision in debate.’ Rothbard was a master, at least with a pen. He would first would attack your premise, and then he would accept your premise and attack the conclusion you drew from it. Or maybe it was the other way around. I can’t remember.

    “I say let them eat each other while we try to build something new that is noble, beautiful, and good.”

    I hear you man. I think the old culture we know and love is still alive though, as evidenced by you and I, but it is just a very small minority. But there is still a Remnant. This is why real libertarians must favor secession and nullification, and why we must come to some sort of consensus on social ethics and culture beyond mere liberty. To be a real movement, as you’ve stated, we must have a cultural prescription, not just a political one.

    The social sickness within the borders of the US is just too great to heal without a political fracturing. I sure hope it’s a peaceful separation, but we should be prepared for the claws of the Left to come out.

      Thanks. Inspiration can come in brief bursts.

      The thing is, the Left is in a bad spot right now. They have had the helm for 50 years and now the tide is turning. They don’t own the guns, control the government, or grow the food. Once the debt bubble bursts, there’s not much they can do. If independent states want to break away and form federations, all the Left can do is try to migrate there and restart the whole subvert, undermine, and destroy process.
