The deep Crisis of the West


Is it a race issue?

29.06.2009. A high proportion of such attacks appears to be carried out by young black men, according to Metropolitan Police statistics. Sorious Samura investigates this horrendous crime – and what it says about Britain today. Continue reading in The Independent.


Praises demographic suicide of European Americans

22.06.2009. According to a report in myway.com, Clinton said that by 2050 the U.S. will no longer have a majority of people with European heritage and that in an interdependent world "this is a very positive thing."

HonestThinking comments: Clinton's statement is very bold, indeed. Does he have any scientific backing for it? No. Does he have empirical evidence to back up his case? Hardly. For all practical purposes this is nothing more than wishful thinking. And a prime example of irresponsibility bordering on treason.


Average IQ higher than previously thought?

17.06.2009. It has been stated many times over the past decades that the average IQ of sub-Saharan Africans is around 70. However, a study from Wicherts et al published online in the journal Intelligence indicates that the true IQ number may be above 80.


Part 12: Swallowed by Leviathan

17.06.2009. Below are some highlights from Takuan Seiyo's latest essay at The Brussels Journal (boldface emphasis added):

Another way of putting it is that after decades of promoting yin (i.e. the cosmic female element) and suppressing yang (i.e. the cosmic male element), the West now suffers from yin toxemia. As per Chinese Taoist precepts, this produces an overabundance of the soft, wet, squishy, sweet, flabby, irrational, diffuse energy that characterizes yin, and a shortage of the hard, dry, salty, muscular, rational and compacting male (i.e. yang) energy that could rectify this imbalance.

The yin-soaked West rests on a foundation of feelings. It feels for the plight of the female trapped in a male body, the Somali who has never seen indoor plumbing, and the abandoned son of a Kenyan exchange student who made good. That all such feelings translate into actions that dismantle the West financially, demographically and culturally no longer registers, for reason no longer registers, nor does survival. This is the age of I feel, therefore I am. The essence of yin.

The West is no longer able to deal with the abundant yang characteristics of the nonwhite, male-dominated ethnic groups – acting as “minorities” on the inside, and rogue and semi-rogue nations on the outside. In particular, gelded Snatchland (4) is unable to perceive, let alone to protect itself, from the main characteristic of the yang groups: Nashism.

Nashism is a neologism derived from the Russian word for "ours."  Nashi is how the Russian refers to the Russian side in a war, dispute, or soccer match, the other side being vashi, "yours." It is a command of the heart, the culture, almost the language itself, that a Russian identify with and support nashi, irrespective of right or wrong, gain or loss, truth or falsehood.


The good intentions of the squishy West stem from biblical morality so mainstream that a sermon in a random Western church or synagogue sounds like induction into the Body Snatcher creed. There is the shame and sorrow for Nazism and Fascism, Colonialism and Slavery, centuries of poisonous anti-Semitism, copious internecine bloodshed in the name of the loving Jesus or xenophobic nationalism, exploitation of peasants, workers and women.

Contrition and restoration one can understand. But suicide?

After all, any calamity, any atrocity committed in the history of Western civilization was exceeded in non-Western civilizations – and they don’t have the West’s redeeming features on the other side of the ledger either. Both Stalin and Mao murdered more people than Hitler did. The Khmer Rouge murdered 26% of Cambodia’s population in four years (6). In the 1200 years of Arab slave trading, millions more Africans were enslaved by Arabs and treated with far greater cruelty than were ever by white men. As Thomas Sowell, a descendant of slaves himself, has pointed out (7), more Europeans were enslaved and taken to North Africa by Barbary Coast pirates alone than there were African slaves taken to America.

In Japan, a samurai could cut a peasant in half under the pretext of an insult, but really just to test his sword. Besides the hard feudalism, racism and ethnocentrism of the East Asian peoples, there is the cruel gynophobia of the Muslims, the appalling savagery of the Amerindians, and so on. But according to such intellectual luminaries as Susan Sontag -- and I am quoting – it’s the white race that’s the cancer of human history.


It’s partly through the efforts of Yagoda, Yezhov and Beria (8) that my Barack buddy from Harvard will continue flagellating himself and his country daily because of the N-word he grew up with. His shelves are crammed with books like Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in the United States, and he revels in the racial guilt indoctrination program his freshman daughter was compelled to undergo at the University of Delaware.  There, Body Snatcher credo is expressed as follows:

“A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination.”

Meanwhile, quite a number of real (and black) Barack buddies are overt, genocidal racists of the frothing kind. Louis Farrakhan has taught his Black Muslim followers that white people are a race of devils created by the evil black scientist Yakub. American lawyer, Wahabbi activist and Obama mentor, Khalid al-Mansour, makes speeches with statements like this (at the 3:07 mark):

"White people don't feel bad, whatever you do to them, they deserve it, God wants you to do it and that's when you cut out the nose, cut out the ears, take flesh out of their body, don't worry because God wants you to do it."

But as successful as KGB’s destabilizing has been, as devastating as the Frankfurt School’s paving of the way for Hitler’s revenge, as brilliant as the psychological sabotage conceived by leftist tacticians Gramsci and Alinsky, Podism could never have taken over all social, political and cultural institutions of the West on the strength of its false propaganda alone. What has brought this takeover is the opportunism and greed for power and money by the 50-50 State (9) and by global economy’s managerial class.


Leviathan as manifest in Snatchland – i.e. all of the West -- exists only to perpetuate itself, and it perverts the social contract any way it can in pursuit of that goal. Like the whale sucking in krill for sustenance, it prospers (until the day of reckoning) by sucking in new groups of dependents. Some of these it creates internally, like the single mothers on welfare who increase their income in proportion to the number of fatherless children they breed with a parade of male pollinators passing through the drunken night. Others are imported aliens from all corners of the globe -- the foreigner and more primitive the better.

There is no better way to fatten Leviathan than by importing people useless to the modern economy and hopeless as prospects for melting in Western society. What excitement at the thought of the many more civil servants who will have to be hired per each 1000 newcomers, to administer ever-larger public welfare and wealth-transfer programs!


The Belgian Anti-Racism Act (12) defines racial discrimination so broadly as to allow Leviathan to prosecute anyone who has anything negative to say about the demolition of that country through immigration. Under this law, the Belgian State ruled the ethno-conservative party Vlaams Blok a racist, therefore criminal organization, and forced it to disband in 2005. The state continues to persecute Vlaams Blok’s successor party, including stripping its leaders of their civic rights, ruining them financially and imprisoning them.

In Canada, the Human Rights Tribunal destroys people under the flimsiest allegations of “racism” or “discrimination”, with Ezra Levant and Mark Steyn the two better known cases among hundreds. But no country can hold a candle to the demolition derby that Snatcher Law wreaks in the United States.

American Leviathan has passed “civil rights” laws, then turned them into racial quotas, then encouraged the spread of nonwhite racial spite and victimology, then unleashed an army of prosecutors to enforce not merely the same starting line for everyone but to sue for race and gender discrimination if there are unequal results at the finish line.

Since the finish line results cannot be equal, because Reality decreed that most women are not as strong and fast as men, and most Blacks have a lower mean IQ than most Whites, and Muslims don’t make good employees in ham sandwich shops, and 200-kg. gluttons don’t make suitable fitness and beauty consultants, there is no end to Leviathan’s Reality-improving work, all done by well-paid employees with fringe benefits unheard of in the private sector.  The result is the systematic wrecking of the United States.

Under the “Disparate Impact” doctrine, American employers are prevented from hiring based on competence, because minorities often cannot pass competence tests. Regardless of merit, if members of a “protected class” are selected at a rate less than four fifths (80%) of that of another group [read “white males”], the employer is subject to harassment and legal proceedings by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, currently employing 2200 persons, soon to go up to 3,000.

An employer cannot refuse to hire convicted felons, because a disproportionate ratio (13) of them is black, hence the refusal would have “disparate impact.” Customer Service employees of major American companies talk incomprehensibly, because a suitable screening policy would have a “disparate impact” on the protected class of nonwhite immigrants. And since requiring a down payment and a good credit score would have a “disparate impact” on black and brown minorities, American banks were forced to waive such requirements. Thus was the sub-prime mortgage born, leading to the unraveling of the American banking industry, and of America itself.


When Reality becomes taboo, and fiction becomes an official totem, civilization has driven itself into a swamp. From then on, it’s the flotation coefficient of the lying totem versus the suction force of Reality’s swamp. That is a contest with only one possible outcome, as gravity and entropy work for the swamp. Unless the lie be smashed and the taboo repealed, that civilization must be sucked under.

The lying totem of equality and the taboo on discrimination cannot be smashed or repealed in time to save the West from its own folly. For they are not merely the Snatchers’ mental chip but are the engine of Leviathan itself.

What sort of awakening can still save Rotterdam, with 40% of its population foreign born and procreating at triple the rate of whites, one in eight a Muslim, 30 mosques and a Moroccan as mayor of the city? Nor will the U.S. that Barack and Rahm found in 2009 be the same in 2014.

Those who refuse to be sucked under have only one option: step outside the swamp and construct a new civilization. Or, as we glimpsed in Part 4, an Altneuland – a new civilization that restores and reinvigorates the old one.

Michael H. Hart's book available on line

17.06.2009. Michael H. Hart (born in 1932) is an American astrophysicist who has also written three books on history and controversial articles on a variety of subjects.

Hart, a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science who enlisted in the U.S. army during the Korean war, received his undergraduate degree at Cornell in mathematics and later earned a PhD in astrophysics at Princeton. He also holds graduates degrees in physics, astronomy, and computer science, as well as a law degree. He was a research scientist at NASA before leaving to be a professor of physics at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. He has also taught both astronomy and history of science at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Maryland. His published work in peer-reviewed scientific journals includes several detailed computer simulations of atmospheric evolution.

His first book was The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History, which has sold more than 500,000 copies and been translated into 15 foreign languages. His second book, A View from the Year 3000, published in 1999, is a history of the future which includes both technological advances and political developments.

His most recent book, Understanding Human History, (Washington Summit Publishers: 2007) is a history of humanity, beginning about 100,000 years ago and going through the 20th century. It includes discussions of developments in every major area of the world. Unlike other books on world history, Hart's work explicitly discusses group differences in intelligence, and explains how, why, and when they arose. The book also discusses the many consequences that those differences have had on human events, starting in prehistoric times and continuing to the present. The book includes an abundance of data and tables, together with sixteen maps, three tables, an extensive bibliography, and a thorough index.

Hart describes himself as a Jeffersonian liberal, while his critics call him a conservative and a racial separatist. At a 2006 conference, Hart had a public confrontation with David Duke, the former Gran Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and one-time Louisiana politician, over Duke's anti-Semitic remarks.

Among Hart's controversial articles was one, published in 1975, that gave strong scientific support for the conclusion that the only intelligent life in the Milky Way Galaxy resides on the planet Earth.

Another article disputed the authorship of the literary works of Shakespeare, asserting that the famous plays and poems were in fact written by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford rather than the man from Stratford-on-Avon who is credited with them.

Also controversial was his paper that suggested that a future of Yugoslavia-type ethnic conflict in the United States could be avoided by a voluntary partition of the country into four states: an integrated mixed-race state, a white state, a black state, and a Hispanic state.

HonestThinking comments: Understanding Human History could in my opinion have benefited from somewhat tighter editing, but is full of interesting facts and well worth reading. See book reviews by e.g. Steve Sailer and John Derbyshire. The book can be downloaded from the publisher .


Where does he stand?

12.06.2009. Writes Wafa Sultan at Hudson New York: Most disturbing was the president’s call to defend Muslims against negative stereotypes. A dangerous precedent is set when freedom of speech is silenced and ideological criticism forbidden. This, again, is the stuff of nightmarish totalitarian regimes. The beauty of the US Constitution is its balance, and the wisdom it embraces by distinguishing between that which should be protected and defended and that which should be prosecuted and decried. Encouraging laws to make criticism of Islam an offense punishable by law is troubling.


Still people wonder why voters vote for BNP

09.06.2009. The UK is experiencing a demographic shift of epic proportions. Yet the media and political elite wonder why so many ordinary Britons vote for BNP. Comments Ed West in The Telegraph: The only way to beat the BNP is an open debate about immigration.

HonestThinking comments: Unfortunately, that's precisely the kind of debate the semi-totalitarian multikulturalists cannot allow, knowing all too well they're bound to lose.


Interesting Muslim voice

06.06.2009. Sadia Dehlvi is a prominent journalist, socialite, commentator and author, with nearly three decades of experience in Urdu-language journalism in India. Her articles are published in Urdu, Hindi and English. Her latest book, Sufism: The Heart of Islam, is being published by HarperCollins India. I found the following two articles of hers both interesting and encouraging:


New book by Christopher Caldwell

06.06.2009. Christopher Caldwell has authored the book Reflections on the Revolution in Europe- Immigration, Islam and the West. For some excerpts from the book, see his article in Prospect Magazine, which begins as follows:

Postwar Europe was built on an intolerance of intolerance and a downplaying of national tradition—a mindset praised as anti-racism and ridiculed as political correctness.


Debate in Oslo

06.06.2009. Irshad Manji and Tariq Ramadan recently met for a debate in Oslo, Norway. The event turned out to be somewhat confrontational.

HonestThinking is dedicated and committed to the art of thinking honestly. Yet honest thinking is not the same as true thinking, for it is possible to think honestly, but be mistaken. For the same reason, honest thinking is not identical with objective thinking either. Honest thinking is striving to get things right. This involves being truthful about whatever one publishes, but just as importantly, it involves an uncompromising dedication never to suppress relevant data, even when data collides with dearly held prejudices. Such an approach may sometimes cause hurtful revisions in one’s belief system. That’s what HonestThinking is all about! Read the entire manifesto.

The current European immigration and integration policy is profoundly disrespectful of both Muslims and Islam, because it is built on the tacit assumption that the Muslims will become like us. One claims to have respect for Islam and for Muslims, but one also expects Muslims to give up their orthodox faith when they come here. At the same time one is assuming that Islam will be reformed and modernized as soon as the Muslims become integrated and understand and appreciate how superior our Western culture is compared to their own. This is cultural shauvinism and arrogance indeed! The unspoken premise for this scenario is that Western socities are superior to Islam. Read more.




Human rights and democracy are under pressure. One threat comes from the Western world, in the form of lack of or dishonest thinking. There exists a peculiar Western "tolerance" which is so "tolerant" that it even tolerates totalitarian or anti-democratic ideologies. A tacit assumption underlying such an attitude is that all cultures, world views, and religions are really equally good. As a consequence of this assumption one is cut off from the possibility of critically examining the above mentioned ideologies. Read more.
