It is blacks who should pay reparations to whites for bringing their ancestors out of that perpetually wretched hellhole Africa and giving them a chance at civilized existence in America.

Not to mention for the enormous sacrifices whites have suffered in blood and treasure in order to uplift the blacks.

“19 families buy nearly 97 acres of land in Georgia to create a city safe for Black people.”

Safe from whom? From other black people? From each other? It doesn’t work that way.

But by all means, do segregate yourselves from the civilized world and stew in your own juices. No reasonable white person would want to live among “your people” if he can avoid it anyway:

“Watching our people protesting in the streets, while it is important, and I want people to stay out in the streets, bringing attention to the injustices of Black people. We needed to create a space and a place where we could be a village, again, a tribe, again,” Scott said.

I agree, with the proviso that “your people” rioting “out in the streets” should only loot their own “communities” including your future “city.”

Sidgwick on religion influencing morality:

Still, it might have made a great difference to the human race if (e.g.) Mohammed bad been fond of wine, and indifferent to women. (Methods, 462-3n1)

Or if Luther had not suffered from constipation?

Here’s how it used to be:

First comes Love, then comes Marriage, then comes Baby in the Baby Carriage.

Here’s how it is now:

First comes Sex, then comes Abortion, then comes Breakup in its Bitter Portion.

Could we be going the wrong way?

Sidgwick:

… a Jew of liberal views might be restrained from eating pork by a desire not to shock the feelings of his friends, and might be moved to eat it by the desire to vindicate true religious liberty combined with a liking for pork. (Methods, 368)

Now that’s a moral dilemma right there.

I wonder what the ideological aspect is of the anti-Trump war the media is waging.

Is it some Green New Deal? Return of hardcore socialism with expropriation and confiscation of private property? What’s the political vision underneath the “mostly peaceful protests”?

My guess is that we have a rather unique situation of the Democrats uniting the undead — all the social rejects, losers, criminals, perverts, haters of mankind, etc. — into a loose coalition in hopes of establishing a kakistocracy — rule by the worst.

An ideological vision can be important if the country is not so divided and “multicultural,” such that the citizens care about the common good. There is certainly no such thing now. In addition, the majority of Americans have been dumbed down to such an extent that they are not even capable of entertaining a coherent ideology.

This anti-intellectual anti-ideological climate is problematic because it implies a sort of war of all against all, with the government spitting out laws and regulations at random, and the legal (and now also illegal) plunder cranked up to the max.

If there are space aliens hiding somewhere in earth’s orbit, I think we should kill all of them and plunder their ships.
