It takes a nation to protect the nation

Rodney Atkinson argues that the EU is a continuation of the fascist project.  After WW2 the western elites have created a cartoon version of "fascism" - one that is racist and right-wing, whereas in truth Mussolini's fascism was supported by jews, and was considered to be socialist and progressive throughout the 1920s.   It is the cartoon conception of fascism that allows the elite to disguise the fact that the west has been coming inexorably more fascist for 50 to 70 years.

Mosley's British fascists are alive and well. And they are revelling in the fact that Mosley's 1932 vision of a single European Nation is coming into being.

Fascism vs. Capitalism: The Central Ideological Conflict of Our Times

“Fascism” has become a term of general derision and rebuke. It is tossed casually in the direction of anything a critic happens to dislike.

But fascism is a real political and economic concept, not a stick with which to beat opponents arbitrarily. The abuse of this important word undermines its true value as a term referring to a very real phenomenon, and one whose spirit lives on even now.

Fascism is a specific ideology based on the idea that the state is the ideal organization for realizing a society’s and an individual’s potential economically, socially, and even spiritually.

The state, for the fascist, is the instrument by which the people’s common destiny is realized, and in which the potential for greatness is to be found. Individual rights, and the individual himself, are strictly subordinate to the state’s great and glorious goals for the nation. In foreign affairs, the fascist attitude is reflected in a belligerent chauvinism, a contempt for other peoples, and a society-wide reverence for soldiers and the martial virtues.

Lew Rockwell, in this new volume, examines the starkly contrasting systems of capitalism and fascism, noting pro-fascist trends in recent decades as well as the larger historical trends in the United States and internationally.

In Section One, Rockwell focuses on the nature of fascism and its influence in Western society, with a focus on American political and economic institutions.

In Section Two, Rockwell examines capitalism as the enemy of, and antidote to fascism.

Combining economics, history, and political philosophy, this book doesn’t just provide a diagnosis of what ails American and Western society, but also sheds light on how we might repair the damage that has been done, and with the help of the intellectual work of great minds like Murray Rothbard and Ron Paul, we might as a society shed the fascism of our times and look to freedom instead.

The EU pretends it believes in capitalism and freedom and markets, but then it uses its pan-continental power to impose economic sanctions on a country which gets in the way of the EU's political expansion to the east.  No wonder Putin is pleased; I'm sure he'd be pleased to see the EU implode.

Putin is pleased with the Greek result. He has a friend in the EU.

Pat Condell on the lack of democracy in Britain

I'm not sure any of you will be interested in this, but I thought I'd record it anyway.

This is an essay by a British philosopher, who went mad in the mid 1990s. He was in some of the same academic places as me, and some of those around him at his descent into madness also went to some of the same institutions as me, and studied some of the same subjects.  Around 1995 I gave up on academia, as I could see that too many around me were going down one-way streets, and that their encounter with philosophy was sending some round the bend.  I couldn't see any reasonable future for myself in that corrupt, dishonest environment. So I left.

This article was written after his return from madness (and his disowning of his former self).  I only post it here because it relates to the video series coming out on Rotherham (@MillenialWoes' ROT series).  This is probably the defining statement on the Dark Enlightenment.

After this philosopher regained his sanity, he left the UK and went to live in China. That might seem like a sensible decision, when one considers the views of the Dark Enlightenment, and the designation of them as "fascists":

Those of you with an interest in the American Constitution might find Nick Land's exposition of some interest.

I kind of wish I hadn't dug into the Dark Enlightenment (again).  It brought be back to reading the amazing Mencius Moldbug, who has to be the true visionary of the DE.

He's pointing out many of the contradictions which dis/connected people on Twitter are also pointing out.  Seems rather strange that a politically & philosophically-engaged computer scientist should have so thematically mined this seam, and then to have random strangers also mine it again and again on Twatter less than 10 years later.  

I can well understand why the Stasi at HNH are onto the Scottish man about Rotherham. They don't want the ideas of the Dark Englightenment taking hold.

Story on how British spies vaccum up internet searches, emails, Skype calls, and even who listens to what internet radio.

The fascist state is already upon us. It never went away.  Mussolini didn't create this state: it already existed. All that happened circa 100 years ago, is that people (basically leftwing) started to recognise that democracy was a lie, and in truth the state was fascist: a combination between the state and corporations and vested interest groups (who wielded disproportionate power).

Fascism was simply the explicit acknowledgement that this was how things worked in "liberal democracies".  And they decided to simply drop the narrative of deceit, and explicitly accept this was how things worked.  They wanted to drop the pretence, and focus peoples minds on the real mechanism of power.

There is something really important about recognizing this deceit.  Those who recognize the deceit do not waste their energies trying to work within society the way the (false) narrative tells the populous that this is how society works.

Another phrase which means the same as "fascism" is "the mixed economy".  Anything between communist totalitarianism and a free-market, libertarian, minimal state is a state that is more-or-less fascist.  The reason why this is important to recognize, is that I keep on wasting my time believing the false narrative.  I have to stop deluding myself that we live in anything other than a more-or-less fascistic state.  Just because our fascistic state has chosen different "progressive" social policies from Mussolini's fascist state, does not mean that our fascist state is different in kind; it is only different in degree.

This is how it can be revealed that everyone in Britain is routinely under total (and untrammeled) surveillance, and no-one cares. At some semi-conscious level, we know that it is a fascist society.  And this is why "cartoon fascism" (silly-looking men, marching round in military uniforms) is kept foremost in our minds as the image of fascism: while we don't see those people on the street or on TV, we can continue to delude ourselves with the false narrative.

Incidentally, this "almost totally unwitting belief in a false narrative which justifies existing power structures" would have been a long-winded explanation of the Marxist idea of ideology, which prevailed for 100 years.  That concept of "ideology" has been evacuated: "ideology" now means "someone's stated or obvious political beliefs".  We no longer have a word or a concept which makes us wise up to the false narrative which makes us accept the way things work, whilst telling us they work in a different way.

As countries like Britain become more and more obviously fascist, I'm not sure The Demos will notice. 

A couple of weeks after Corbyn's coup in the Labour Party, I pointed out how his fellow-travellers were using specifically nazi-sounding phrases ("one leader, one party" etc.)

Now The Telegraph is pointing out another similarity between fascism and Corbyn's brand of socialism.

There seems to be a new breed of Leftist along the scale of Darwinian evolution.

People like Wilson and Callaghan were OK.  The worst they would do is slow down the economy by nationalising large industries, but at least people still had jobs, even if we were poor.  

Then Blair came along with his modernised centrism designed to draw in the Islington crowd and the liberal middle class, and we started down a dark path of callous manipulation of the media and message, with blatant disregard for the concept of 'truth'. He was dangerous, but in a way we could recover from after he got voted out, and get back to normal.

Now with Obama and Corbyn, we got a whole new species of predator. The truth was discarded long ago, as Alinsky told them to, but now its the structures of democracy that get discarded.  Thus you have Obama ruling by executive fiat (sorry, order), because he's 'got a phone and a pen', you have 320 Sanctuary cities defying federal law, and you have the federal government punishing states like Arizona for enforcing the border laws that Washington has paradoxically repudiated.

I don't think it will be long before we are craving a hardline government like the Russians have, to rescue us, once the Leftists have gained total power.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
