American culture now drinks deeply from the ghetto, and there is no turning this around either. The country has achieved the dictatorship of the sub-proletariat. Someone said that when the lower orders found that they could vote themselves the treasury, they would. They can also vote themselves the culture, and have.
That struck me as stark truth, with this in addition…
Soon there will be none left who remember what has been lost. Once broken, the chain cannot be repaired.
Chilling once I realized that I am one of ‘those who remember’. Then I realized that it is already too late, because no one is listening. I was reminded of something that my father told me, in the forties and after the war, he was a sailor in the U.S. Merchant Marine. Time and again his ship would dock late at night after the trolleys and the buses had stopped running and he would walk home to Squantum (part of Quincy, MA) from the docks in South Boston. He would have up to six months pay in his pocket. The neighborhoods that he had to walk through, at night, were; Southie, Roxbury, Dorchester, and Quincy. Anyone who reads this and currently resides in the Greater Metropolitan Boston area just got a shiver up their back. Even at the time he first related this story to me, in the seventies, he followed up with the comment, “I wouldn’t do that today even with five of my buddies at my back”. What has been lost.
Fred on the election…
…according to Hillary, ardent of becoming National Basilisk, half of Trump’s supporters are evil and the other half losers, deplorables all. That is, she holds half of Americans in contempt.
I frankly think her admirable. As she coughs, staggers, convulses, lies, pilfers, sells favors and lapses into intermittent confusion, she still has the courage to tell America that she loathes half of it. That´s candor.
…never having accomplished anything on her own, always riding Bill’s coattails, having a disastrous record as SecState, always for sale. With her, we know what we will get. With Trump, it’s a roll of very weird dice.
It’s been obvious for a long time that the American Political System doesn’t work (at all) anymore. In 1775, to many British subjects in the Colonies it became obvious to them that the British Royal system wasn’t working for America. They did something about it. But not at the ballot box. Yeah, I know what I’m saying.
The final (cheerful) conclusion from Fred…
America is more fragile than it looks. Its people cannot feed themselves. The economy really can collapse. If civil unrest broke the link from farm to cities, in two weeks New Yorkers would be eating each other. Soft white urbanites eeeeking and squealing about guns cannot defend themselves.
It is over. Watch. Trump if elected will be more interesting, Hillary a boring but more certain civilizational mortician, but both are chips floating on a fetid tide.
My previous advice still holds, don’t start stocking up for the Apocalypse unless the first items you procure are guns and ammunition. Otherwise you are just shopping for someone else. And do not tell anyone about what you have.
If you don’t feel that you could use a weapon against another person then stock up on good whiskey, maybe the looters will have a drink with you before they shoot you in the head.
