The morality of equality is an evil and destructive morality. What is equal is replaceable, and what is replaceable has no value. Equality makes everyone a slave. Value comes from two sources, superiority and scarcity. What is superior is higher in quality than what is average. And what is scarce, what is rare or unique has higher value than can be found everywhere. The ultimate consequence of an egalitarian morality is the destruction of human value.
It’s no surprise that the history of egalitarianism is a history of state terror, and mass murder. The french revolution led to the guillotine, and the reign of terror. And since the only people in the world who honestly believe in the absolute moral goodness of equality, are the European descended people of the West, and those in the white western diasporas and elsewhere. The egalitarian morality is ultimately the methodology for destroying the value of western man, in the eyes of western man. And what makes this especially nefarious is the fact that western man is deeply preoccupied with morality. That’s why he is more worried about being called a name, than about his own continuity and prosperity. That’s why he is more worried about being thought of as a bad person than about feeling at home, in his own homeland. That’s how he becomes an ethnomasochist.
You may think it’s strange to speak about western mans moral preoccupation in times of perceived widespread immorality. But the truth is, we are living in Puritanical times. When it comes to the belief in the moral goodness of equality, the consequences of heterodoxy are severe. So western man is and remains deeply preoccupied with morality, and ultimately this has geopolitical implications, because most of the peoples of the world value their own uniqueness. They think tribally, ethnically, and racially. They are willing to act in consequence, no matter what it says on their passport. For them this is right and good and completely uncontroversial.
“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
After you start doing the thing, that’s when the motivation
comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”—John C. Maxwell (via quotes-shape-us)
“And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery store. You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally. You are not the moon kissing the black sky. You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July. You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years. Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday. You’ve got to stop worrying about what you’re going to tell her when she finds out. You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago. You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo. You’ve got to love yourself.”—(via privetsdrive)
“In the immortal words of the late American paleontologist Jack Sepkoski: ‘I see intelligence as just one of a variety of adaptations among tetrapods for survival. Running fast in a herd while being as dumb as shit, I think, is a very good adaptation for survival.’”—Does life have a purpose? – Michael Ruse – Aeon (via we-are-star-stuff)
“That sand into which we bury ourselves in order not to see, is formed of words…and it is true that words, their labyrinths, the exhausting immensity of their “possibles”, in short their treachery, have something of quicksand about them.”—
Georges Bataille, L’expérience intérieure, translation by Leslie Ann Boldt
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for your own pleasure.”—John BergerWays of Seeing (via glowing-ovaries)
