The Great Rebellion

Joel Kotkin tries to explain why the world is rebelling against the experts claiming the right to lead it:
The Great Rebellion is on and where it leads nobody knows.

Its expressions range from Brexit to the Trump phenomena and includes neo-nationalist and unconventional insurgent movement around the world. It shares no single leader, party or ideology. Its very incoherence, combined with the blindness of its elite opposition, has made it hard for the established parties across what’s left of the democratic world to contain it.

What holds the rebels together is a single idea: the rejection of the neo-liberal crony capitalist order that has arisen since the fall of the Soviet Union. For two decades, this new ruling class could boast of great successes: rising living standards, limited warfare, rapid technological change and an optimism about the future spread of liberal democracy. Now, that’s all fading or failing.

Living standards are stagnating, vicious wars raging, poverty-stricken migrants pouring across borders and class chasms growing. Amidst this, the crony capitalists and their bureaucratic allies have only grown more arrogant and demanding. But the failures of those who occupy what Lenin called “the commanding heights” are obvious to most of the citizens on whose behalf they claim to speak and act.

The Great Rebellion draws on five disparate and sometimes contradictory causes that find common ground in frustration with the steady bureaucratic erosion of democratic self-governance: class resentment, racial concerns, geographic disparities, nationalism, cultural identity. Each of these strains appeals to different constituencies, but together they are creating a political Molotov cocktail.
It's moderately amusing that Kotkin first asserts that nobody knows where the Great Rebellion is leading before promptly explaining where it is going to go. He doesn't know. No one does, but the idea that someone whose sympathies clearly lie with the dishonest, predatory elite that has met with such a visceral rejection from widely disparate people suggests that he will no more be able to anticipate its direction than he was able to see it coming in the first place.

Islam has spread aggressively, from my observation, since Pakistan got the nukes and was able to fend off India while inspiring/spreading to other states. Iran's revolution stands out as well. Today the caliphate is diverse and erratic and will keep consuming all in its path until the host is dead, or it is defeated.

Western countries have massive muslim enclaves which serve as a fear and cover so that other of its tendrils can infiltrate (academia, business, media, govt etc) so that if it is not repelled, has a substitute organizational framework.

All your landmarks, libraries, cultural centers will be demolished.

Speaking as a white, hetero, Christian male, I know that in the long term, these wicked usurpers will be smitten. In the near future, this means seeing my civilization erode and collapse.

If a #NeverTrumpie had a time machine, he'd want to go back and stop Trump.

But the one thing he'd never do is tell Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio to listen to the people and their cries about massive immigration.

I can speculate where I think it's going. I believe we're seeing a renaissance of the middle classes, and a sense by the middle class that it's them against a coalition of the Welfare Class and the Truly Rich.

For decades, the upper middle class and the lower middle class have been divided. That seems to be ending...and the resulting united Middle Class has tremendous political power. Power to upset the status quo.

I think what will emerge is a more nationalistic world...and one much less tolerant of the antics of both the Welfare Class and the Truly Rich. A reemphasis on the concept of One Law For All.

So someone named Klotkin decides to explain to other rootless cosmopolitians why the peasants are revolting. Well, it’s a step. “Gosh, guys, those racists we’ve been dumping on for 20something years don’t like us anymore!”.

Although the “peace” he babbles about is pretty thin stuff - the 90’s had wars in the Balkans, Africa and Kuwait just for a start.

Not to mention the “prosperity” was and is a debt-fueled illusion.

Global government run by "expert" bureaucrats.
That was the EU.
It is the idol that is failing and has failed.
All anyone with sense knows is that it is collapsing, so run away, whether to the left or right.
When the Berlin Wall fell, it showed communism to be empty. Socialism in Venezuela similarly.
The elites experimented on the people and have created Frankenstein monsters and "V"s.
The original deal was peace (now no USSR) and prosperity. The middle class ignores much when they are content. But the hubris of the bureaucrats destroyed things, and bailed out the elite.
The elite won't make in to their bunkers, and those who do are likely to have them sealed as tombs.
Nationalism? They love mexicans.
Free trade? nonsense, thousands of regulations and crony carve-outs.
Democracy? the failing juggernaut goes forward regardless.
Peace or security? A perpetual war on method and expensive toys.
The elite are delivering the opposite of what they profess.

The reason the world is rebelling against the experts is simple: the free flow of information. Specifically, the Internet.

And, the rebellion against the experts is not just in politics. Diet, relationships, and religion are three other areas I can think of off the top of my head that are being revolutionized by bottom-up movements.

I agree that Blind Justice will again be the ideal, but it will never be the reality. A more assertive middle class may indeed be less tolerant of lawbreaking, but they and working poor are the only ones that have ever had an autogenous instinct to follow the law.

We're all aware of the Criminal Loophole in every possible gun control scheme; well, that applies to every law and regulation in general. (Which is why it's not just a bad idea, but pure insanity to let people from low-trust cultures into high-trust societies.)

The welfare class, truly rich, and low-trust ethnics will continue to do whatever they think they can get away with, as they always have; all we can do is shrink that set by making it harder.

Yes. The establishment/media/SJW's are going mental here. It's hard to put into words just how febrile the political atmosphere in the UK is right now. I knew they'd be upset, but I've never seen anything like this.

So we've seen the MSM basically declaring war on the majority of the British population. Broadsheets - not the sensationalist tits n' football obsessed tabloids, mind you, but the clever papers for clever people - openly calling chaps like Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage "rats" and threatening unspecified future reprisals.

This is just days after Jo Cox MP was murdered by a random loony and we were solemnly told - by the same people - that there'd better be an end to fiery political rhetoric, BTW.

London, or Ponce Central as it should be known, has been drenched in the salty excretions of arseblasted Remainers. There have been ill-tempered demonstrations on the streets by people demanding the EU save us from British democracy.

Celebs have taken to Twitter to threaten emigration and call ordinary people cunts. Gnome-featured millionaire cocksniffer Richard Branson says Parliament should ignore the referendum result and let the peasants eat crepe. Brown people who campaigned for Leave have been called "nigger" and "Uncle Tom" by those enlightened progressives in the Remain camp.

There was a poll released today by the LSE claiming that Brexit made half of all young people cry.

It's absolutely bloody glorious. If I'd known there was going to be this much blood pouring out of their wherevers I'd have put up a big LEAVE sign in my driveway and made a bin bag full of popcorn.

How about skinners?

Their perception of culture is skin deep, so their multiculturalism is like reskinning the models in a video game: fashion only.

They're also materialists and therefore behavioralists, so society is a Skinner box and its culture is just conditioning. (This is actually another gaming reference because of MUD-derived games such as Everquest.)

I think it would work for the "beauty is skin deep" level of reference, with a couple levels of richer meaning for gamers.

@ Bard

This is what my cucked friends do not get. I've traveled all over this country and live in a "whitopia" of sorts. They truly do NOT get the massive....MASSIVE demographic change that has occurred in just _15_ years.

Formerly white towns in many rural backroads are now barrios. It has to be seen to be believed unfortunately for most whites.

The average age of whites is 57, of mexicans.....9...!!!!

You wouldn't have to explain "reskin multiculturalism" to a gamer, and our novelty voraciousness ensures that subcultural phenomena spread.

I feel that the best way to get battle-forged rhetorical weapons is to wait for one to arise from the chaos of /pol/. And if that's too passive for you, then go ahead and start posting there to add your power to the internet's hive consciousness...

I mean, the chans brought us "cuck" as it's used today.

11 million illegals....bullshit, try 60 million and another 60 million legals.

You've gotten a small glimpse of it Bard, it is out of control, even the old generation latinos are overwhelmed.

I think the Great Rebellion can be considered a form of decentralization. If so, this makes it, and the alt-right in this country, worthy of support even if one disagrees with many position points of the alt-right.

Gold mine here for anyone who bothers to shift through it. Trump's team would be grossly negligent if they didn't have people poring over this material for useful stuff.

WikiLeaks on Monday released 12,058 Hillary Clinton emails it has compiled out of the 50,000-plus pages of emails released by the State Department.

According to The Hill, which first reported on the release, WikiLeaks pored through the emails released through Freedom of Information Act requests and compiled the ones it says Clinton sent or received during her time as secretary of state that related to the Iraq War.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange last month said his organization had found enough evidence to have Clinton indicted.

The effort was part of a searchable archive launched by WikiLeaks in March of PDF documents released by the State Department. They span the time period of June 30, 2010 to August 12, 2104, according to WikiLeaks.

"All Orcs will be carefully vetted prior to being allowed to migrate to the Shire. The fact that there are a small minority of bad Orcs should not reflect upon Orcdom as a whole. Upon entry into the Shire we will insure that all Orcs receive appropriate assistance toward acquiring jobs and healthcare." -- Pres. Obamauron

Never mind that large sections of Hobbiton are now "no-go" zones for Hobbits.

Next up: Orc Lives Matter protesters demand reparations for what they term "excessive use of force" in a recent border incident between Rangers and refugees. Speaking at a press conference, Mouthpiece Al Sharptongue promised supporters that they would "Taste manflesh!"

In response, Harvard Chairman Saruman the (((White))) has issued invitations to an Isengard summit promoting interfaith, interspecies dialogue, which will address the root causes of systemic inequities in an effort to begin the healing process. A summary of the proceedings will be published under the working title: "Through the Palantir - Perspectives on a Post-Dipolar Middle Earth."

"Until there is a massive tax rebellion in the US, the Elites won't care what is done or said."

I've seen a number of Americans online recently saying 'that's it, I'm done, I'm closing my business/quitting my job and earning as little as I need to get by'. They've decided that starving the Beast is the easiest way to take it down, even if not the fastest.

But that's going to happen anyway. Even if there's no revolt, VR, 3D printers and similar technology are going to gut the work economy over the next couple of decades. The tax base of big business employees that keeps big government funded is going to disappear, regardless.

I tried to copy the meme about Italians not waving Italian flags & learning English but the content is protected. It would be a great source of memes otherwise.

Here is an interesting data point.

A friend of mine attended a dinner at the local chamber of commerce. There were a number of EU interns present, many of whom were voicing the opinion that "democracy was a hinderance to the EU", that it "got in the way and would therefore be better to have less of it".

Another was heard saying that the "technocratic structure of the EU is what is to be admired and emulated"

It's very much like 1933. The allies won WWI but the economic policies of the Elites caused the Depression and the rebellions of the 1930's.

I've been doing that for years. And no, I don't get a handout from our blessed gubmint. I'm white and from the South, so I automatically am disqualify. But for those that can game it, go for it.
