The shape of things to come

SHARE
The French contestant in the Eurovision competition is a young, homosexual Arab in a blonde wig, but he is in big trouble for having years ago criticised Israel in a tweet. 

Every day there are lots of stories like this and there will be for at least decades to come, even after the inevitable reaction to identity politics.

  2. even after the inevitable reaction to identity politics.

    Identity politics has been with us since the beginning of the 1970s. Almost half a century. There's been no reaction against it so far. in fact quite the opposite. it just goes on gaining momentum. We now have several generations who have been so thoroughly indoctrinated in identity politics that they can't conceive of a world without such a thing. To them it's as natural as breathing.

    The only chance of a reaction against the madness is that radical Islam will gain sufficient strength to mount some real opposition. It's our only hope. We can't save ourselves. We're too far gone.

    Or perhaps the neocons will finally get what they want. Nuclear combat toe-to-toe with the Russkies, Out of the devastation civilisation might once again arise.

    Islam sounds like the better option. The one downside would be no more ham-and-cheese croissants!

    1. Yes there has been no reaction for decades. What do you even mean about radical Islam being our only hope? That white Europeans will become Muslim or be replaced by Muslims? Why would either be better than what we have now? There is every reason to expect that Muslims will form the majority in Europe one day because of immigration, not mass conversion and yes in some ways Islam is better than liberal atheism, but on the whole an Islamic Europe would be a disaster for our civilisation.

      Our civilisation is headed for disaster anyway. All we can hope for is a moderately horrific trainwreck rather than a spectacularly horrific trainwreck. To my way of thinking an Islamic Europe is the lesser of two trainwrecks compared to the inevitable end result of liberalism.

      I'd prefer a Christian Europe but that option has been off the table for a couple of centuries.

      In the U.S. on the other hand the liberal agenda is almost certainly unstoppable. It has actually accelerated under Trump.

    4. I see why you might think Islam preferable to atheism if you are a Christian. I might agree, though I am not as sure as I used to be. But why want the peoples of Europe to be supplanted in their ancestral homes?
      You think Trump is making liberals go further? Certainly he is and this is his strategy.

    5. I see why you might think Islam preferable to atheism if you are a Christian.

      I'm not a Christian. To be honest I'm pretty much an atheist. But I don't think a civilisation based on atheism can survive. Religion is a necessity.

      But why want the peoples of Europe to be supplanted in their ancestral homes?

      I don't, but the peoples of Europe don't care. They just don't care. They're dying anyway, with frighteningly low birth rates. They don't want a future. They want momentary pleasure and they want shiny consumer toys. They're already doomed. They'd have a better chance with Islam. Not a great future, but better than what they're looking at now. At the moment they're following a death cult, because that's what consumerism/liberalism/atheism amounts to.

      You think Trump is making liberals go further? Certainly he is and this is his strategy.

      If that's his strategy it's a very poor one. Americans had one chance to throttle liberalism. Trump was that chance. And he blew it. In my opinion he blew it because he's always been a liberal. In any case by the time Trump leaves office the apparatus of totalitarianism will be pretty much complete. The means will be there to crush any future spark of dissent. Maybe Trump just lives in the same fantasy world as the alt-right.

    6. Interesting. There is some truth in all this but what do you mean by 'Maybe Trump just lives in the same fantasy world as the alt-right'?

    7. what do you mean by 'Maybe Trump just lives in the same fantasy world as the alt-right'?

      Among alt-righters there's a popular delusion that if liberals get more and more extreme then it will trigger a massive backlash by the Silent Majority of decent sane ordinary people.

      The problem is that the Silent Majority doesn't exist any more. The Silent Majority elected Nixon, but that was half a century ago. There is no majority of decent sane ordinary people. Decade after decade after decade of indoctrination has done its work.

      Most people cannot even conceive of questioning ideas like the awesomeness of homosexuality, that a man in a skirt magically becomes a woman, that climate change is real.

      There's a related alt-right fantasy, that there's going to be another Civil War and that decent God-fearing gun-owners will easily be able to defeat the government. It's a particularly popular fantasy among the libertarian fringe of the alt-right.

      Trump certainly doesn't believe the second delusion but he may believe the first one. He may think he'll be propelled to a second term by a Silent Majority-type backlash against liberalism.
