"They simply failed to recognize the full horror"

The near-total inability of the American people, and the U.S. government, to recognize the full horror of their situation is not exactly new. For Christmas, Spacebunny hunted down a complete first edition set of A History of the Peninsular War by Charles Oman, which she somehow managed to obtain for less than five percent of the going rate. When it comes to things used and garage sales, she is without question an Apex Predator; she is the party primarily responsible for my beautiful collection of books.

Naturally, I immediately awarded the seven-volume set pride of place in my library. In addition to being one of the most thorough and well-sourced accounts of a war in recorded human history, Oman's history of the Peninsular War is remarkable for its keen observations of human nature. Prior to encountering Martin van Creveld, Oman was my favorite military historian, and A History of the Peninsular War is indubitably his magnum opus.

The attitude of the people of Northwest Spain during the French invasion can't help but strike the observer of the current US situation as one that is all-too-familiar:
Leon and Old Castile had, as we have already had occasion to remark, been far less energetic than other parts of the Peninsula in raising new troops and coming forward with contributions to the national exchequer. They had done no more than furnish the 10,000 men of Cuesta’s disorderly ‘Army of Castile,’ a contingent utterly out of proportion with their population and resources. Nor did they seem to realize the scandal of their own sloth and procrastination. Moore had expected to see every town full of new levies undergoing drill before marching to the Ebro, to discover magazines accumulated in important places like Ciudad Rodrigo and Salamanca, to find the military and civil officials working busily for the armies at the front. Instead he found an unaccountable apathy. Even after the reports of Espinosa and Gamonal had come to hand, the people and the authorities alike seemed to be living in a sort of fools’ paradise, disbelieving the gloomy news that arrived, or at least refusing to recognize that the war was now at their own doors. Moore feared that this came from want of patriotism or of courage.

As a matter of fact, the people’s hearts were sound enough, but they had still got ‘Baylen on the brain’: they simply failed to recognize the full horror of the situation. That their armies were not merely beaten but dispersed, that the way to Madrid was open to Bonaparte, escaped them. This attitude of mind enraged Moore. ‘In these provinces,’ he wrote, ‘no armed force whatever exists, either for immediate protection or to reinforce the armies. The French cavalry from Burgos, in small detachments, are overrunning the province of Leon, and raising contributions to which the inhabitants submit without the least resistance: the enthusiasm of which we heard so much nowhere appears. Whatever good-will there is (and among the lower orders I believe there is a good deal) is taken no advantage of. I am at this moment in no communication with any of their generals. I am ignorant of their plans, or those of their government.’
At least the Spanish people of the 19th century realized that they had been invaded and they were at war. Today, despite having been invaded by a force 250x larger than the Napoleonic army that invaded Spain, the American people still completely fail to understand that their country, their culture, their government, and their traditions are being fundamentally altered without their will or their consent.

not true.

the reason you say this is because of the US policy of birthright citizenship, ie - Jus Soli citizenship. which is not how Natural Born Citizenship was conceived of by the Founders.

for the Founders, children of Naturalized Citizens would, as a matter of course, be considered Naturalized themselves.

but NBC status wasn't tied to the principle of Jus soli, but rather to the legal principle of Jus sanguinis or Citizenship by birth / blood.


"And the children of such person so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age of twenty one years at the time of such naturalization, shall also be considered as citizens of the United States.

And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens: Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States:
"


current American policy has not merely been changed from the policy of the Founders ( Jus sanguinis ), it has actually been inverted to be regarded as Jus soli of itself being the total and only requirement in order to be a Natural Born Citizen.

go back to a Jus sanguinis ( or even sanguinis AND soli ) criteria and the problem, for the most part, disappears.

I think this is changing, and fairly rapidly. A few years ago the idea of "A-10ing the Caravans" would have been horrifying; now I hear more agreement: it's becoming absolutely clear to more people that we need to be willing to kill in order to secure the border.

The real question is if this change is happening fast enough. / It's certainly surprised the globalists insofar as "Build the Wall!" is popular, but I think they might not realize how many are fed up with the "invite the world (and give them preference to the Citizen)" elite.

This holiday weekend I visited two small burgs on the US East Coast. Never before did I witness so many interracial pairings, and all of them were black male and white female. 90% of the females were firm 7's or higher with several 9's and not the expected dregs. I also observed noteworthy numbers of young apparently single white men, ashen faces ensconced some digital screen, who are overweight, poorly dressed and unkempt. I don't see that saturation in Chicago where I live and work, maybe it's different in the burbs, I did receive a shocked report the muzzies had taken over the Oak Brook Mall, which used to be a white Catholic hot spot for Christmas shopping.

The government's nothing special, it is not our culture. That's the strange inversion of civic nationalism, this nation of ideas crap, that elevates some abstraction over our natural human bonds. "We are a nation of laws, not men!"

Or simply end birthright citizenship, thus removing a key way non-citizens manipulate the system. If the U.S. did that, as well as remove all social services (at least to non-citizens), it would go a long way to reducing the number of people eagerly crossing its borders in order to get free stuff and become citizens without responsibility.

We had a house fire when I was 6. After getting us kids out of the house, both my parents went back in a few times to gather things until my father said no more.

After us, what did they grab? Small family heirlooms, the family Bible, pictures.

I view the situation in America much like that fire. Certain things are worth saving in themselves; there is a Natural Order in which things are saved or salvaged, this Order is reflexively acted out and upon.

My family has 400 years of ancestral blood and bones in this ground. I can't think of a single thing, culturally or traditionally, that is not worth dying for, let alone worth preserving or salvaging.

@21
Culture exists to enable men and women to cooperate and have children. It provides men an opportunity to compete for status in a pro-social way and aligns male status with how women view status.

As for government, it exists to organize society for war. The purpose of the state is organized violence- war to defend its inhabitants and conquest to secure more land and resources for them to live. 'Social welfare' is typically parasitism that occurs due to political conflict. I'd say we'd need to go back to aristocratic monarchy, but the Swiss have managed to work tolerably well. Regardless there is nothing from the American Republic that is worth saving (although state and local government systems may be salvageable).

Of course Napoleon eventually lost, but I see it as tragic for think of all the immense amount of energy pouring out of the people, and to what end?

" ... limited powers is far more important than limited terms. More important than the form of the government, too."

A problem with that is we started out that way. The original "Articles of Confederation" was a blueprint for a very weak central government. That start led to the present nightmare. Perhaps there is no way to constrain a State.

I was just reading H.H. Hoppe'e speech delivered at the 12th annual meeting of the Property and Freedom Society in Bodrum, Turkey, on September 17, 2017.

He went over what real libertarianism is missing and what the alt-right is missing. It is worth a read, especially the ending part where he talks about how a solution has to start with populism. (just as Rothbard pointed out in the 90s)I guess populism has always been the way in my view.

https://misesuk.org/2017/10/20/libertarianism-and-the-alt-right-hoppe-speech-2017/

Hard right paleocons, Rothbardian anComs, Alt-righters and the "old right" have always been nearly the same to me. More in common than not.

Bottom line? The federal government has been used by the "elite" to destroy us. We are going to have to have allies and God. Even then we may lose if all of this is part of God's plan. Perhaps we must lose just as Jesus had to die. I pray not.

In the end though, it is the good against the evil. Jesus vs. Satan. We will win, but much pain will come our way before the end.

Sorry but you are wrong. While "demographics is destiny" has been misapplied by the usual suspects and used as a weapon of demoralization and propaganda, it has a certain flair of truth attached to it, whether you like it or not. Without youngsters and children, a nation has no future no matter how you slice it; or how good its warriors are. If you don't believe me you can just ask the Spartans whose downfall was partly the result of their demographics. Are we on time? Of course. But don't delude yourself and think that the situation can change in less than a month and it doesn't matter what happens because we have all the time in the world...

@14 Finally, someone else has opened their eyes and sees this. Ever since Trump was elected this has accelerated here in Canada. In 2015 or thereabouts, (((James Deen))) worked to influence porn stars to sleep with black men on screen. Women take their fashion cues from whores, historically. A few weeks after Trump was elected, I also saw the hard 7's and 9's dating Arabs and blacks. But they had a defiant look, like "are you going to stop me, white man?" But this year that had completely changed. Now these women of all ages are looking at their swarthy lovers with the look of genuine attachment and fondness. The rebellion is gone, the coup was won.

In the episode of the Walking Dead where Rick left the show, he was doing a lot of flashbacks. At the end of the flashback, someone would shout YOU HAVE TO WAKE UP and he would wake up and see the zombies almost upon him. Looking around at the situation is just like this.

If the current policy isn't Satanic, then I don't know what would qualify as Satanic.

"I don't know -- I am praying for justice, as I really don't want an American version of the [French] Terror to come about,"

I grew up thinking that the French Terror was one of the worst events in human history.

Now, understanding that
1) After having witnessed Britain's unmitigated disaster after having embarked on "Free Trade" policies in the 1760's, which caused the Corn Riots which lead directly to losing the majority of the American colonies as a result of the heavy internal taxation required)... the French King and aristocracy decided to sign on onto Ricardoism, also.

2) The fact that, even with people starving to death in the streets at unprecedented rates, the aristocracy and the King continued as if the "Free Trade" policies were beneficial to everyone, despite the unmistakable evidence in the form of dead people all over, not just in Paris, but throughout the country...

And now seeing the same actions AND the same SMUG ATTITUDES towards the people who those at the top are screwing... I know understand fully not only how the French Terror was not only logical, but NECESSARY.

It has taken 200 years for the French government to try screwing their population again. And let's hope that the Yellow Vest movement, if not satisfied with genuine reforms, repeats history.... And that it will be 1000 years before any French politicians are dumb enough to try screwing their own countrymen again.

"Build the Wall, my foot. Lay the Minefield."

And, as a border should be UNDERSTOOD to be inviolate without permission, NO WARNING SIGNS other than the line demarcating the border.

Let them get the hint in the way that will be most memorable -- the TV showing images of the destroyed bodies of those who chose to violate our sovereignty.

"I guess I ask because there's so many negative critiques of American society in our circles and beyond."

Whatever one (((the critics))) are criticizing for being offensive to Ashkenazi nonsensibilities.

"Preservation is a defensive mindset. We should focus on restoration."

This is why I no longer call myself a conservative.

I now call myself a reactionary, and damned proud of it.

"Regardless there is nothing from the American Republic that is worth saving (although state and local government systems may be salvageable)."

In Michigan, the state government is even WORSE than the Feds. They trample due process like it's never been heard of before. A Federal judge put an injunction on the Secretary of State's office prohibiting any further suspending of drivers' licenses for unpaid tickets without due process in the form of an ability to pay hearing. Dick Schuttie, the Attorney General (who, thank God, was defeated in his run for governor... but at the cost of us now having a Democrat (and probable witch) win instead) actually ran to the Appeals Court all the way down in Cincinnati, IN PERSON, so that he could claim that he, and the Secretary of State, have absolutely ZERO CLUE about "what due process looks like."

Schutte. Damned Germans and their "the rules state that you must do this impossible thing (*), therefore you MUST do it, or suffer the consequences!(**)" attitude.

(*) produce money that you don't have and is beyond your current earnings

(**) of being prohibited from driving, even to and from work, under pain of arrest, and thus preventing you from going to work so that you earn the money to pay off the fine that you didn't have enough money to pay in the first place.

"
I think an elected government with limited terms is probably worth keeping too, though the voting franchise should be earned and not granted indiscriminately."

Thomas Jefferson advocated that there be no such thing as Natural Born Citizen, as that all, even those whose family has been here for generations, should go through the naturalization process, to demonstrate that they actually understand how the government is supposed to work.

Of course, seeing what's happening today, that would probably ALSO be used as another weapon against us, in that all answers that reflect the truth would be regarded as wrong answers under the current Congress and bureaucracy.

"limited powers is far more important than limited terms. More important than the form of the government, too."

And the death penalty for any Congress-critter who voted in favor of any Act of Congress which is later determined to be unconstitutional.

Who knows, they might start actually READING WHAT THEY VOTE FOR again. Only the suicidally stupid would vote for a bill which he hasn't personally read to make sure there's no poison pill in it to have him literally executed.

And if they are required, out of fear and practical requirement, to read ALL of their proposed legislation (as well as have some independent parties look at it, too), that would really slow down the entire process of meddling in our lives.

"Bottom line? The federal government has been used by the "elite" to destroy us."

Which takes the mystery out of why Broadway was so willing to produce a play about Hamilton(*) . Hamilton's idea of the perfect United States is one thoroughly controlled by what he called "The Natural Aristocracy." And aristocracy has never meant nor implied, ability, talent, worthiness or merit.... Only favored families allowed to abuse all others, the others having no avenue for legal redress of said abuse.

Today's America *IS* Hamilton's vision for the U.S. A very few families doing fantastically well, and everyone else is trapped in inexorable decline.

The fact that Trump does not share this "Natural Aristocracy"

(*) Black actor was just another f-u to middle class whites. And a meta-joke, too. Putting the play and the historical Hamilton together, you get "black guy and his system is what's economically destroying your white family, you dirty peasants!"

"Without youngsters and children, a nation has no future no matter how you slice it; or how good its warriors are. If you don't believe me you can just ask the Spartans whose downfall was partly the result of their demographics"

Taking the most physically fit boys, and putting them into Sparta's army at age 12 or even earlier, in which they were literally buggered into homosexuality with no attraction to women at all certainly isn't a policy for long-term survival of your city-state.

Rome tolerated some homosexuality, as long as it was kept in the closet, and went from city-state to controlling the entire Mediterranean basin.

Therein lies the difference.

"But, I think she's more right than wrong that this NEXT "American revolution" WILL be the French Terror, and not the honorable military fighting between two armies of men..."

I'm just waiting for it all to start.

I have a mental list of those nearby of who to kill right off, starting with neighbors who plaster their car bumpers with deliberately thought-stoppping left-wing platitudes and slogans. Take all of their stuff as Prize of War and then move upwards and onwards to more significant targets.
