Where the Globalist Agenda Really Leads

where globalism leads

 

The greatest, or most commonly raised, objection to the “Flight 93 Election” piece by the inimitable Decius seems to be that he is too pessimistic. In fact, they said precisely what he said they would: things aren’t so bad! No need to panic, or even to question the way we think about politics! So it would seem to be unwise to out-pessimize Decius, who has penned the best political essay of the election cycle. And yet, here I am. In one respect, I think the situation is more dire than he allows.

In his original essay, Decius said that if Trump loses, we face a set of options:

The possibilities would seem to be: Caesarism, secession/crack-up, collapse, or managerial Davoisie liberalism as far as the eye can see … which, since nothing human lasts forever, at some point will give way to one of the other three. Oh, and, I suppose, for those who like to pour a tall one and dream big, a second American Revolution that restores Constitutionalism, limited government, and a 28% top marginal rate.”

 

And again, in his response to his critics, he wrote of the managerial Davoisie liberalism option:

Keep in mind, this is the best case scenario. Which leaves open the larger questions raised in the prior essay that gave so many the vapors: how long could that possibly last? And what follows when it ends? The #NeverTrumpers don’t even attempt to answer the second because their implicit answer to the first is: forever. Who knew they were all closet Hegelians? Yet I’m called nuts for raising doubts.”

 

I don’t think history has ended, and it’s true that, most likely, nothing lasts forever. (In some ways, history seems to have restarted in this election cycle.) Eventually, I assume, the world will end. But I fear that the consequences of a permanent global managerial oligarchy are more fearsome than Decius allows. He is trying to make the best case: allow me to, briefly, make the worst.

The logical outcome of global open borders is that all nations become the same. Not everything gets taken to its logical conclusion, of course. But a borderless world is a borderless world. The mass migrations into Europe and the United States currently taking place show no signs of stopping on their own, and it isn’t as if the Third World is going to run out of migrants any time soon.  The UN predicts that the population of Africa alone will quintuple to 4 billion in the next 80 years while Europe flatlines around 700 million.

But of course, it isn’t really a borderless world. While Mark Zuckerberg and Paul Ryan lobby for more immigration and amnesty, they build walls around their own homes. There will always be borders: but eventually, they will only exist for the Davoisie.

The answer Decius might give to this is, sure, but eventually the people will rise up and overthrow the managerial elite. And sure, let’s say a large enough group of them did. What of the vast resources of science and technology at the fingertips of those who rule us? Will they allow themselves to be overthrown? Will they allow the global system to go down because a few hicks decide that it matters that the difference between us and them is that “We live here”?  To put it more simply, what becomes of the “deplorable” Americans who object to the new America, who are deemed “irredeemable?”

In his Thoughts and Adventures, Churchill warned of the “nightmares” to come “if Civilization cannot take itself in hand and turn its back on those Cities of Destruction and Enslavement to which Science holds the keys.” The scientific elite and the political elite of our world now work hand in hand – knowingly or not – to create a world slum where the only suburbs are the ones they live in. My question for Decius is this: are you sure this can’t last forever, or what may as well be forever?

There is, of course, a message for my dear conservative friends here, the ones who think they can hide from what is to come: they will not leave you alone. You cannot retreat into your Christian enclaves, your small towns, your gated communities. The Clinton Justice Department will find your cloister to be insufficiently diverse and your pulpits filled with hate speech. The arm of the Davoisie will reach you even there. No matter where you run, the world will follow you.

    No doubt you have described the desired end point of the Davoisie. Events may have gotten ahead of them, though, with Brexit, the looming breakup of the European Union, and the rise of Donald Trump. If Trump loses, the United Kingdom elites prevent exit, and the European Union resorts to outright totalitarian measures to keep member states in the fold, your worst case scenario will become reality. It is hard to imagine all three of those things happening, and that’s not even an optimistic assessment. That the conservative remnant doesn’t foresee such a scenario or even worse supports it shows why the movement richly deserves to die.

    • Violet

      Yes. The fate of the West seems to me to ride on this election. For Europe the consequences are even more immediate than for us. Brexit does offer some hope. The people of England begin to speak! http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-secret-people-2/

        Thank you for the link. I will read the poem in a more sedate setting later.

        As to my previous comment, it also is possible that all three things actually happen: Trump wins, Brexit is implemented, and the European Union implodes. You are right. The fate of the West hinges on the next few months. Let’s hope our civilization prevails but be realistic enough to accept it may not.

        I agree with you about this election. What I think is likely the next election and especially the one after that worries me even more. The left owns the schools and the media. I read Mark Steyn writing it, he may have been quoting some else though, ” Politics follows culture”.

    • And How to Get It

      The conservative remnant/elite are part of, and owned by, Bill Kristol and his insidious minions. Not for them the fate the rest of us are set to suffer should Trump lose. The Hamptons beckons…

      • jack dobson

        The Bill Kristol types support the Davoisie end point. Fortunately, this faction of the remnant is irrelevant and despite the fig leaf of an independent wannabe-spoiler won’t be able to help Clinton win.

      • Bill Kristollnacht

        The Hamptons isn’t a defensible position, no low lying beach is.

        Watch this- Mark Blyth on Brexit…”eventually people will come for you.”

    • Bill Kristollnacht

      If the EU goes Totalitarian look for Putin to run guns and ammo in from the East.

      The White People are very, very mad right now.

    • And How to Get It

      Oh I know, the Hamptons is where they are now.

      • Bill Kristollnacht

        And New York City is defensible?

        Wake the fvck up dude.

    • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

      It’s a sad world when Putin is a global hero for nationalism and sovereign rights.

      • Bill Kristollnacht

        Putin is a great leader and that’s why the NeoCohens hate him.

        When he declared Russia a Christian Nation they went Bat Sh!t.

      • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

        Yea, he is a good Russian nationalist, which is my point. When the only patriotic, nationalist leader in the world is Putin, it is a sad world indeed.

    • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

      That’s why the elite are preoccupied building defensible compounds and bunkers all over the world in remote locations. Basically their panic rooms.

      • Bill Kristollnacht

        Too bad their compounds will be found and electricity and water will be cut off.

      • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

        One can only hope

        • Bill Kristollnacht

          It always happens that way.

  • QET

    The masses will continue to seethe regardless, forcing the Davoisie eventually to remove themselves to an orbiting Stanford torus. You think Musk and Bezos are building those rockets for any other purpose?

  • Bill Kristollnacht

    There are millions more of us than them.

    They’d be obliterated by the 500 million firearms floating around this country.

    The saying goes that if food supply chains are broken “we are only 72 hours from total anarchy.”

    And I hope the Davoisie remember this line, “money fills purses but often empties heads.”

    One of the problems for the Davoisie is that they aren’t as smart as they think they are. Vicious, venal, and autocratic but wholly dependent on the vast peasantry to obey. I go back to a quote I heard from Benjamin Netanyahu when asked whether freedom would win in the struggle with totalitarianism. “Freedom will win but the only question is how many will die.”

    • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

      True. Very few of the Davoisie attained their position and influence through actual merit… like a Zuckerberg. I’d wager the majority inherited wealth and status or worked their way up the ranks via connections and sycophantic endeavors.

  • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

    Chilling assessment of our prospects. It makes me curious how many of our thought leaders in the #NeverTrump movement are on the payroll of the Davoisie elite or imagine they’ll be rewarded with admittance to the 1%er ranks for services rendered.

  • Mike ✓ᴺᵃᵗᶦᵒᶰᵃᶫᶦˢᵗ

    That’s why they try so hard to break our spirit. When a free man watches a hairy, burley bearded trucker in a sun dress and stiletto heels follow his 6 year old daughter into a women’s public restroom, and the only thought that enters his head is: “yes, every person has the right to use the restroom of their self identified gender, ” then you have irrevocably broken his mind and spirit. He is no longer free, and you can convince him to think and believe anything.

    A “world slum”? Perhaps it is better to think that is a return to an older form; perhaps, a neo-feudalism. Look at the clerisy as a foundational element in this restoration.
