Pluralism with a Dash of Imperialism

<font size=”2″ style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><span style=”font-weight: bold;”>All we have to do is position ourselves politically to be prepared for the final American imperial flowering and collapse into single-ethnicity nation-states, and to defend our own as history unfolds.</span><br style=”font-weight: bold;” /><br />Author anonymous by request<br /><br />Much of contemporary white-on-white debate about history and culture is centered on contested versions of appropriate categories of discourse, those ideas like freedom, a unitary America, Republicanism, constitutionalism, conservatism, right versus left, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, equality, pluralism, loss of vigor in our demographic, and the propaganda spheres we spend our lives in.  There are many more Big Ideas which lead to insights and consequences, but I want to argue here that the most important idea that has done more damage to America and to European Americans than any other is century-old pluralism of the racial, continental origin, religious, and national origin variety which is an idea, an ideology, and a meme.<br /><br /> The term &quot;meme&quot; still awaits scientific validation, but it perfectly describes fundamental belief structures akin to the role of genetics in the physical sense.  Here is what Wikipedia says about memes:<br /><br /> &quot;A meme is a postulated unit or element of cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that gets transmitted from one mind to another through speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena.  The etymology of the term relates to the Greek word mimema for &quot;something imitated.&quot;  Supporters of the concept of memes believe that they (memes) act as cultural analogues to genes, in that they self-replicate and respond to selective pressures.&quot;<br /><br />Even if memes cannot be proven to exist, the term offers up another, and better, way to refer to categories of discourse.  And of course memes are what are drilled into our heads by the corporate entertainment culture, the monopoly educational culture, and the dominant media culture.  So if we may assume, arguendo, that pluralism is a big enough idea or meme to unify our European American discourse and planning, let us take a look at what that might mean.</font><br /><!–[if gte mso 9><xml>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span> <o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Pluralism was known at the time of
the American founding but then it meant a variety of social,
economic, and regional interests having access to the levers of power to avoid
causing internal constitutional crises, but had no racial connotation. 
Between 1880 and 1900, pluralism came to mean a variety of races, national
origins, religions, and continental origins each standing on a legally
institutionalized footing like European American religions, cultures, and
origins.  (This is not necessarily a matter of equality
because disorganized European Americans are not
equal to better organized demographics.)   President
Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to be tremendously opposed to this
kind of pluralism, which he should have been, because the racial,
continental origin, religious, and national origin pluralism meme had been
sneaked into the American pantheon of ideas about 20 years before his
presidency.  This will be the meaning of the term pluralism to which we
refer in the remainder of this essay.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span> <o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>HISTORICAL INEVITABILITY</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span> <o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Self-described neo-cons,
conservatives, liberals, and many others have swallowed this meme whole, and
treat its contemporary meaning as part of the constitutional framework of the
American government and social order.  But what does pluralism
set into motion?  An unstoppable chain of events that unfolds into
new structures, new values, and new ideas that will dominate our children’s and
grandchildren’s lives.  There is no component in pluralism that draws
a bright line saying, this far and no farther.  It has no brakes, and
simply continues to unfold.  (It’s like liberalism in that regard, having
no clear end to its acidic attack on all our values, goals, and
structures.)</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span> <o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>In some ways an argument of
inevitability is a comforting notion because then we just have to figure out
our roles within the unfolding nation, and enact them.  There’s no reason
for blame, praise, triumph, despair, crimes, justice, fairness, morality,
or how to stop the unfolding.  In other words, if pluralism has kicked off
a process we can’t stop, then our job is to get ahead of the curve
intellectually, be prepared for the coming changes, and help our brothers and
sisters prepare. There’s not even a need to seek some kind of calamity to
change history because calamities are guaranteed as a result of changing
circumstances, and will simply unfold and swallow those who are foolish
enough to remain in the way.  It’ll be bloody and cruel, but only because
these changes are written in blood, not because we want it so.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Arguments from inevitability have a
bad odor, notably because of the collapse of the bogus communist credo and its
predicted stages of economic development, but some things really are
inevitable.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>The first thing to understand is the
fundamental value called pluralism as described above.  It is a
culture-cracking and nation-wrecking meme or category of discourse, but it is
like a social addiction because short-sighted people grasp its promises of
wealth, power, and notoriety.  There is no record of any society in the
world which, having once embraced this kind of pluralism has ever been able to
turn back (with the sole exception of Switzerland which has successfully drawn
the line at multi-culturalism).</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>The initial outcome of a national
embrace of pluralism is the legal institutionalization of
multi-culturalism which means identification usually by race, but occasionally
by other demographic features like religion, national origin, and continental
origin.  Multi-culturalism, properly understood as a feature of America,
is nothing but the imposition of an entirely new layer of quasi-government
located between the constitutional levels that are legally part of the
social contract.  By the way, don’t underestimate PC, because it is the
public voice of this new layer of quasi-government.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>We’ve seen the pattern in so many
societies, <em>e.g</em>.,
the Roman empire, the Byzantine empire, the Russian empire, the short-lived
USSR empire, the Ottoman empire (by far the most interesting and little-known
example of this kind), the British empire, the
short-lived Indian empire, the Holy Roman Empire, the Austrian-Hungarian
Empire, the short-lived second German empire, and the
short-lived Yugoslavian empire.  These entities were
officially the collection of &amp; embrace of multiple races, nations, and
territories as well as the common feature so frequently noted, one-person rule.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Multi-culuralism soon morphs into
multi-racialism (along with some variants of religion) and, at this time
(2009), America is both well-established as a social order rapidly embracing
multi-racialism.  An example of this is the practice of print media
to analyze all social data according to one feature, namely race, which
becomes the replacement for the now old ideas of multi-culturalism, and becomes
legally institutionalized and located between layers of our legal
governmental structure.  This is an inevitable step.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Multi-racialism rapidly morphs into
multi-nationalism, and woe betide the demographic that has failed to seize its
opportunity for a seat at the table when the social goods are divided up. 
It is at this point, which is approaching, when Euro-Americans (or some remnant
of them) will grasp what is going on and self-organize into competitive groups
on this level.  I suppose this will make the White Nationalists happy, but
this will be a real toughie for most members of the diverse white American peoples
to grasp.  They’ll cling to their false consciousness of a unitary America
until militarized squads knock down their door.  (There’s a reason,
after all, that &quot;white profiling&quot; European Americans as
hate-mongers and anti-government radicals has been officially promoted in
Missouri, and most recently by the Department of Homeland Security on April 7,
2009. These publications are not accidents, they are just breaking the ground
for more white-profiling governmental actions.)</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>On one level, it will be interesting
to see how and when the instinct for self-preservation kicks in among a
significant number of European Americans — it hasn’t happened yet.  Most
of us are wallowing around in sub-issues continuing to think our elected governments
are still open to us.  To give that idea the lie is easy — just ask
yourself this question: name just three instances of any elected white
officeholder (forget the rest) to speak out (A) when a presidential candidate
uses expressions like &quot;typical white person&quot; (no respect for our
variety), (B) when a US Senator uses expressions like &quot;white
ni–er,&quot; or (C) when other elements of official bigotry occur like the
conversion (for federal statistical purposes) of Latinos into whites and
blacks.  Yes, Latino perps of hate crimes and other felonies &amp;
misdemeanors, when reported for statistical purposes to Washington, are made to
disappear into two groups with about 10% assigned to the black segment and 90%
assigned to the white segment.  This latter phenomenon is so unjust that
it is very difficult to understand why white politicians are afraid to operate
legislatively to change it.  In any case, unrebutted vilification by
elected officials as well as uncorrected toxic official statistics are so
prevalent in American life today, that we must assume that our white elected
leaders will never reach out to help us.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Multi-nationalism is always an
aspect of empire-building for a variety of reasons which are not always clear,
but each of the empires listed above found a wonderful marriage between
multi-nationalism and empire-building.  In fact, that is the nature of
empires, they are made up of many nations. Clearly empire-building is either
caused by, or is enhanced by, multi-nationalism.  The best example of this
is the Ottoman empire although not differently in kind from other
empires.  The Ottoman empire needs to be studied carefully because it will
teach us a lot about the folks who brought pluralism to us in the first place,
and I don’t mean Turks. Pluralism, multi-culturalism, multi-racialism, and
multi-nationalism also sooner or later go hand-in-hand with one person
rule and, as ideologies, are vigorously and officially promoted throughout
the empire.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>The final step in this inevitable
unfolding is for empires to collapse back into single-ethnicity
nation-states.  This was and is true of every empire discussed above
except the American empire, but there is no reason to suspect it will avoid a
similar collapse.  These collapses are a particularly bloody and
cruel time, and the best historical example is, once again, the Ottoman
empire.  It peaked in power and influence 150 years after its founding,
but it took 300 years of war and bloodshed to collapse into single-ethnicity
nation-states.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>The recent collapse of the
Yugoslavian empire into its constituent nation-states was a product of the
Ottoman collapse, ditto for the splitting away of Bulgaria, Romania, and many
Asian nation-states.  This process was not completed until President
Clinton’s administration, and there is still the little matter of the forced
Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian nation to settle out.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>Remember that when the Turkish
people opted to create a single ethnicity nation-state for themselves in Asia
Minor, and decided to change their empire into a republic and shrink it to Asia
Minor and a little part of Europe, the Greeks were roughly expelled from
western Asia Minor and turned into refugees in Greece, and at least a million Armenians
were genocided in eastern Asia Minor.  Yes, we have physical expulsions
and killings to look forward to, all because pluralism wasn’t stopped in 1900
when there was a chance to do it by law.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

(Rwanda) in 1994 when the Hutus genocided 800,000 Tutsis to get a litle tribal
purity going.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>We saw a peaceful version of this in
1993 when the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic split up but,
even though it was peaceful, it came after a remarkably bloody period when
the short-lived second German empire disintegrated at the close of WWII,
and Germanic peoples were converted into targets for killing over-night,
and into refugees from the Slovakian and Czech territories the next day. 
The collapse into single ethnicity nation-states can take weeks, decades, or
centuries. </span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>It is strange to contemplate
that history might be on such an auto-pilot, only barely subject to human
leadership efforts, but it appears to be true in every society that embraced
pluralism and allowed multi-culturalism to morph into multi-racialism. 
The only real exception is the nation of Switzerland which embraces four
different ethnic elements (French, German, Italian, and Roma), but stays away
from multi-racialism and multi-nationalism.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>

<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”><font size=”2″><span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>There is a political benefit to all
this, an accidental side product, which allows Euro-Americans to take needful
action without praise, without blame, without attacking any other demographic,
and without embracing supremacy, hate, self-doubt, or uncertainty.  We
don’t have to engage in verbal contests of much weight (just replies to verbal
drive-bys), and all we have to do is position ourselves politically to be
prepared for the final American imperial flowering and collapse into
single-ethnicity nation-states, and to defend our own as history unfolds. 
That is, we really need to plan to be the Turks when the American empire
collapses, not the Greeks or Armenians.</span><span><o:p /></span></font></p>
