The Nature of the Beast

Consider: the peaceniks of the '60s blew up buildings and killed wantonly out of principle.

Right-to-life fanatics murder abortion doctors and abortion doctors murder babies. UN peace-keeping troops abuse and kill their charges. And on and on. Now consider which part of our population is growing faster. The ever-so-sensitive high-IQ professional dreamers of brotherhood and nonviolence aren't even replacing themselves while the barely sentient parenchyma multiply like mold with fangs. They can't use tools much less make them and can't organize themselves much less anything else. They're unintelligible, illiterate and their notions about tomorrow are their long-range planning—in fact, volunteers have to tend thim like indoor plants or they couldn't participate in society at any level, and that includes feeding themselves.
But they are violent, unpredictable and homicidal. And openly so. Therefore it is they who prevail in the long run, not their over-aware and over-educated keepers. You'd think scientists would notice these things. Well, they do notice in little ways, like how some parts of public transit aren't theirs to use. The underclass isn't the underclass because, say, the educational system is defective—although it is defective and fundamentally so. Education fails because it's built around our fantasy that everything will be nice, and everybody will be nice if we just tap our heels three times and insist it's so. It isn't so. No amount of education can improve the incurious and improvident, which is to say: the stunningly stupid and violently impulsive. They know it and we know it. The difference is they admit it and tell us so in every way they can. -- ol remus and the woodpile report

Your Say

I read the whole thing and all the joy at seeing my fellow freedom lovers rise up against the statists last week evaporated in despair. We are doomed, I say, doomed, doomed, doomed. It's down to beans and bullets time.

We have to stop subsidizing the underclass.

I'm not talking eugenics here; just stop subsidizing them.

By thinning out their keepers, they go to weed, soon become choked off and are lost in the resurgent pioneer growth of the new wilderness to be conquered.

At that time you'll recognize them, a patch of brambles, here and yon, to be plowed under. Nothing is forever.
