The end of empire

Eventually, inevitably, the decadence and demoralization of imperial society catches up with the leading military power. As the Z-man notes, the USA is no exception in this regard:
For starters, the sorts of men excited about taking orders from a girl are not the sorts of men you want fighting your wars. That only works in Hollywood propaganda. That propaganda, however, has had an impact on the culture. As a result, a decreasing number of men are physically able to meet the minimum requirements. A boy who spent his formative years playing video games and being asked if he would prefer to wear a dress, is unlikely to have the ability to make it through basic, much less be a good soldier.

Then you have the fact that white guys are starting to figure out that the government is their enemy, so signing up to fight for the government is not in their interests. Part of it is the fact that the public has figured out that the neocon response to 9/11 was a scam. They did not care about keeping the country safe from Islam. They only cared about keeping Israel safe from Islam. Importing millions of Muslims after 9/11 did not go unnoticed. A volunteer army relies on patriotism to fill the ranks. Fighting for strangers does not cut it.

There’s also the fact that whites are getting wise to what’s happening and public trust is plummeting. A volunteer army not only relies on patriotism, but it relies on civic duty. It is why we still call military service a duty. Some still call politics “public service” even though no one is so naive these days. The point is, like patriotism, civic nationalism is a social contract. Both parties have to uphold their end of the deal in order for it to work. It’s why blacks lack patriotism and they have never been willing to join the military.

The black issue is one to understand. We are constantly bombarded with propaganda about the heroic blacks in the military, but blacks have always been under represented in the services. Blacks, of course, are leading the charge against the  national anthem. It’s not just a stunt by coddled athletes. Blacks in America have never felt a sense of duty to the country, which makes perfect sense, given the nature of black identity. If you see society as dominated by the people you hate, why would you feel loyalty to society?

Then you have the much celebrated browning of America. As of the last census, the majority of people under-18 are non-white. By the next census, it will be distinctly non-white. War fighting is a young man’s game. A military built to run on smart white guys with a sense of duty is not going to function when it has to rely on non-whites, who despise their host population. Inevitably, the military is going to start looking like a Chicano version of Stripes. No one says it, but everyone in charge sees the problem.
This is one of the many reasons that Trump and the generals would be wise to ignore the increasingly desperate blandishments of the neocon imperialists to go to war somewhere against somebody. It's only the relatively small size of the commitments and the caution of the generals that has permitted the US military to avoid a Syracuse-style disaster of the sort that crippled the Athenian Empire.

Something I've noticed about Trump is how he's been quietly making sure that he's on the good side of the top military brass. And I'm sure the bulk of the military overwhelmingly supports him. He's canny, and definitely enough so to know who to have on his side if things really did go south.

I cannot say I do not care, because I have always cared about this country ....and I am sure there are many here who still feel the same way.

What I will say is...I am not allowed to care anymore because this is no longer MY COUNTRY.

For me, the Rubicon was crossed in 2007, when I was forced from my position in Texas by local Leftist radicals and Mexicans, under the accusation of being "a Patriot, a Nativist, and a Rightist"...to use the exact wording.
(I was also accused of supporting the Rule of Law, which even more damning.)
I freely admit to all of their charges, but I have never known any of the accusations to be a detriment or a negative.

I am, therefore, unmoved and undisturbed by all the talk these days of demographic shifts, political filth and corruption, lack of public civility, crime, cowardice, treason, and the likelihood of future domestic conflict. Likewise, I have zero interest in yet another war in the Middle East, or war with Russia, or war with China, or even North Korea. Unless and until this is MY COUNTRY again, I have no foreign enemies other than those who dare to invade this country. (Leave & Live is the only solution for invaders.)

Blogger Sherwood family August 26, 2018 8:53 PM  

The Founders well understood that having a large standing army always tended toward the kinds of evils that such armies spelled for Rome. Grinding up the pick and flower of American manhood in the Civil War by conscripting a immigrants to fight them was a major step away from the Founders view.

The U.S. needs no massive standing army. It needs a small, highly trained expeditionary force for the occasional threats that would require such a force. Reducing the size of the thing to something with no more than a brigade's worth of fighting men with the needed support structure would be one of the best things we could do monetarily as well. We have nukes, keep them in shape and let the world go its merry way.

I agree with Albright but only in one particular way, why have an army if you won't use it to protect your nation's borders? If it isn't doing that job it doesn't deserve to exist. And since the powers that be have seen fit to make that impossible there is no raison d'etre for our military in any practical sense.

OT: Has anyone read this bit of treasonous crap by (((Max Boot)))? I swear I am getting tired of these folks trying to undo the election because Trump doesn't want to play the neocon's stupid games.

Nuttiness from the new-cons is increasing. Case in point: Max Boot recently opined that the military should overthrow Trump.
I take that as a sign of desperation. The longer that the US is not in a major war, the more that these armchair neocon theorists will be seen as irrelevant and wrong headed. The public will increasingly realize that America can be at peace yet not lose standing in the world.
A related point: its telling that the neocons are not worked up about something real: Chinese espionage. A Chinese spy was driving Ms. Feinstein for twenty years. The Chinese infiltrated the personnel records of government employees. The Chinese engage in business and scientific espionage against the US.
Now I'm not saying we should get into a military conflict against China, that would be insane. But the neocons are not giving us interesting ideas on how to block China from harming the US.

Depends on who you ask. Cubans, descendants of the original Californians, descendants of Spanish and Portuguese immigrants, etc.

The primary thing is that, in order to claim that whites aren't a majority, you have to literally lie. And then you have to ignore anyone who's 1/8 or more ???.

It's leftist rhetoric repackaged to convince whites that America isn't s white country, just for cross-purposes to the original. No matter who says it, the goal is despair.

all Spanish and Portuguese are Caucasian. as are most of the natives of the Sahara and the Mediterranean rim.

you have to remember that most Caucasians ( indeed, most Aryans ... which is an alternate spelling of Iranian ... and who came from India ) ARE NOT WHITE.

the 'hispanic' population of central / south America is a mixture of the native 'American Indian' ( mostly ancient Asian ) stock, southwestern European Caucasian and Negro slave stock.

and, obviously, the 'hispanics' of Caucausian heritage tend to be more intellectually capable.

I am the guy in the linked post below, and I have stayed in contact with people from my old reserve unit (35 series reserve linguists) I can attest that it has only gotten worse in the two years since I left.
The unit degenerated from its 2012 height of over 100 soldiers ready to deploy (many positions were double slotted and most NCOs had either combat arms experience, combat experience, deployments AS 35 series, or some combination of the above. For example, in one year the MIRC outlayed 4 million for additional training and our COMPANY used 75% of that for the entire army reserves...we were hungry and capable and had rebuilt the unit from a pathetic platoon sized element with an E7 commander and an E6 in the first sergeant slot....
Now? Back to around 25 troops and a 1Lt in charge.... And all it took was a two year period with a female CO And A female 1SG simultaneously...

Wasn't just the National Guard. 101st Airborne was deployed to Little Rock; 82nd and 101st to Ole Miss (plus other units).

But forced integration was achieved by "peaceful demonstrations" that overcame the awesome power of Southern sheriffs via the power of their example and simple moral suasion, though.

Times have changed. So have attitudes.

That was an army with a lot of conscripts (especially in the infantry) and even a sizeable number of officers had liberal inclinations, even in combat arms. These days, the combat arms personnel, and nearly anybody associated with them, are quite right-leaning. Somewhat cucky, but easily full-on red-pilled by unfolding events. What liberals do exist tend to be in combat service support units (water purification, hospital, laundry, postal ops, dock ops, finance units, etc.), some air force support units, and somewhat more in the Navy (being at sea isolated from world events and news allows one to be a blithering libtard idiot well into... well, look at Carter for example). Army and Marines -- not so much.

For one thing, Syracuse, N.Y. is probably more conservative than Athens GA. Real conservatism not Erick Erickson conservatism.
I say that as a native Georgian with much sadness.
The South is really becoming so hollowed out of good, smart, strong Trad people, it gets harder day by day not to feel the despair.

Ominous Cowherd beat me to it.
Imagine the Bonus Army, but with modern-day proportion of diverse population, with officers hand-selected by Bill Clinton, GWB, and Barack Obama for last 25 years. If that doesn't concern you, raise the diverse proportion of the Bonus Army another 10% over 10 years. Keep doing that until you're concerned.

Praetorian Guard no longer work for SPQR and haven't for some time.

Eh...not a safe bet, after further thought. If PC continues to race down the path of madness and entropy, no corporation will be safe from SJW convergence.
AI’s first order of business will be to destroy “whiteness” knowing our luck.
