It’s no secret that people all around the world generally regard Americans as ignorant and uneducated. Causes for this is are seen in all levels of our society, even including the “nationalist” movement. It is generally inescapable. Why is this a dominant feature in our national make up? How did it get this way? What can be done about it? What can we do to improve ourselves?
In this article I will attempt to give my view on the matter and some historical context as to how we arrived at this place.
Many of you out there will rightly blame the media for promoting a culture of ignorance, glorifying the illiterate jock or thug as the ultimate and only real examples of masculinity. Many of you will note that the rise of this destructive cultural trait started as the degeneracy of the 1960s spread outward into popular culture when the government loosened the reigns it had on the media back then.
Few people today know that at one point there was a list of acceptable and unacceptable things to show and promote in film, tv, print, music, and popular culture in general. The mass media wasn’t keeping itself in check out of a feeling of civic duty anymore than a potential rapist was keeping himself from doing something to get executed over out of civic duty. The international cartel that has run our media for the last century or more was interested in protecting itself from the wrath of the citizenry and government when we as a nation were still more educated and moral. Once the decay ran too deep into our educational system many of our youth were more concerned with music and subcultures and drugs and hedonism. The die was cast and the nation changed within a single generation, although the most destructive aspects took time to manifest.
At the very end of the previous era, the one before the decay took root, most people would say that masculinity was easily described as the representation of pioneers, westward settlers, cowboys, astronauts, soldiers and the like. Men who took on personal hardship and sacrifice in order to carve their destiny from the wilderness and the cruel natural tendencies of fate itself. Our society glorified explorers, stunt men, daredevils and the like. A safari in Africa hunting big game which could kill you easily was a fantasy of many young boys. Honor and high regard for yourself and your people was universal. You could order submachine guns from the Sears catalog at the tender age of ten and nobody thought to stop you because we as a society were still strong and glorified the upright moral warrior spirit of the west. It was inconceivable that someone would be so deranged as to turn a weapon on his fellow citizens over a grudge or on a whim. In that age, the age of a far different America, there was nothing lower than being a self hating coward, there was nothing lower than being an oath breaker. Men and women trusted the government and media because it was absolutely unthinkable that these entities didn’t represent the values of the dominant culture. How far we have come.
The change happened so fast that many folks didn’t realize it until decades later. The last era of American western civilization was the end of segregation. People in the north and people in the south were all living in segregated neighborhoods. It was natural to prefer to be around your own and it was natural to refuse to intermingle. Racially aware attitudes were the norm up until the late 1950s and even into the 1960s despite what we are told to believe. Many modern people are lied to, told that this was an expression of hatred for the other. Love for your own is not hatred for anyone else. Neonazis didn’t really exist yet and where they did they were hated by everyone, the klan was generally disliked, and most white people just wanted to live their lives peacefully around their own without harming anyone else. Making it in life same as now required most of your time and attention, and the family required the rest. Social clubs were common. Nobody had time to go around hating every other race. The first major attempt at using media to change this self focused attitude was on the show “All in the Family” featuring the racist and rude “Archie Bunker”. This sitcom didn’t take place in the deep south. It took place on the east coast. It goes through scenarios such as the first black family to move into the neighborhood and how giving them a chance won’t destroy your neighborhood, or being falsely mistaken as jewish and having swastikas painted on your door and having the JDL show up and stand guard over your house in-case the vandals return. In reality this seemingly moral attempt at making whites more tolerant was really meant to get them away from thinking of their own best interests, and instead considering others who did not think of the whites in kind. The integration movement was only enforced at gunpoint in the south, but the most significant racial riots took place outside of the south. Make no mistake that this was a national cultural shift taking place. Descendants of both sides in the American Brothers War were facing the same struggle at the same time. What was the reason?
It’s common knowledge among our circles that there is an IQ gap between the races, most notably the 15 point average gap between blacks and whites. Some people credit this gap with being the cause for our national educational decline, but it is not true. It isn’t common knowledge in our circles that in the 1950s we were #1 in the world for high school and college education and as of 2009 we were in 18th place. The downward trajectory seems to have really started in the 1980s although we can pinpoint the weakness being introduced into our educational facilities with the rise of leftist student activism and social marxism campaigns. This significant change in education cannot be explained purely by demographics. If it was only due to demographics we would need to have been made into 1/18th of the population of this country.
School integration didn’t result in an immediate drop in performance in most areas, like anything else it was a gradual process that was held back by social convention. At that point there was still high social pressure for blacks to perform and for whites to not adopt their culture and idioms. If anything it initially did have a positive result in the black student makeup of most districts. Being forced to compete on an even playing field with white students caused black competitiveness to rise and the effect was noted early on from what I’ve read. Still in the 1980s we were much closer to #1 globally in education. This was also the time period in which the system started pushing it’s effort into high gear to demonize “nerds” as well as promote jock culture and stupidity and hedonism and disrespect for cultural norms through music more than any point since the 1960s. As much as I hate hippie era bands they still had some meaning behind them, they still represented an ideal and had a philosophy. The bands in the 1980’s aimed at the “masculine” members of our youth like Van Halen were only meant for promotion of an empty, hedonistic party life. It is this point where we see school being represented as boring and uptight and lame and white. Rodney Dangerfield movies also represented the manufactured war on traditional values and intelligence. There are many more examples I wont mention, but I will instead turn your attention to the manufactured resistance to this phenomenon which we see in the “Revenge of the Nerds” films. These films show the “nerds” as social misfits, geniuses, spergs, perverts, and homosexuals who only want to get along and be equal while the mean old party-jocks who represent the dominant social order are repressing them and committing hate crimes against them. As we know social programming comes from above and these ideas were injected into the public mind, especially of the 1980’s youth in various ways. I am just using these easily referenced examples to make a point.
We see two examples of social programming here that are clearly defining social roles and rivalries in the educational system that simply did not exist prior. Friends of mine in Europe take education much more seriously, it’s not just my friends though. People of every political variation in Europe take education more seriously. They see American education as being torn between degenerate party freaks who use education as a social club and sex adventure, and defective intellectuals who for some reason just aren’t normal. I think in many instances the archetypes that the system created in the 1980s are still as strong as ever but now altered with a more racial and radical aspect. In the 1950’s you could be a “nerd” and wear glasses and a pocket protector and work for IBM or NASA or a university and still be masculine. You worked hard and were proud to be good at your profession, maybe you drove a jeep in the woods to camp and fish on weekends, maybe you still enjoyed the American mythology of masculine heroism and manifest destiny. Being a “nerd” wasn’t an indication that you were a defective then. Nerds were an exciting required class of advanced man who would bring us into the world of tomorrow through engineering and science and computers. Knowledge was glorified while the illiterate and slow were an underclass to be pitied and spoken about in hushed tones.
In today’s version of these archetypes the ignorant jockish class are generally empty headed urban thugs in school on sports scholarships and sad white males who accept or emulate this try to fit into a social place which no longer is readily available to white males due to increasingly being pushed out of college and national level sports. The nerds really aren’t nerds anymore, but instead are the logical extension of the “Revenge of the Nerds” protagonists and are multi gendered sexual deviants and open marxists who assume they hold the mantle of the smart nerd class due to their love of video games and fantasy novels. The only legitimate people in any amount in our college system who totally reject these roles tend to be East Asian students who score better than all other groups and as such are more discriminated against in college entrance policies than even whites are. The amount of normal or conservative white students in higher education seem to be very low and generally they dont exit higher education unscathed, especially the females.
We can see in the 1990’s how this came to be, again using mass media programming as an example. The terrible movie “PCU” takes place in a time shortly after higher education had been totally and unapologetically hijacked by the SJW liberal types. The old guard party jocks are all but extinct and have devolved into nothing but a group of wasted goof offs, the old guard “smart and serious” students only exist in secret and are openly despised for representing a retro version of white American culture which is universally regarded as evil. They are of course compared to “muh evil nazis” several times. Everyone else almost without exception is a member of some leftist freak organization which are all coddled by the school administration who put education as their absolute last priority.
Important to note is that these aren’t just irrelevant movies and cheap entertainment, these are examples of the roles and values and thoughts being pushed down on people from above from every direction, but that were not commonly recognized at the time. In many ways the parody versions of these realities are helpful to show us the true nature of things through satire. It’s as if the people who are responsible for forcing these things on us feed us entertainment mocking us for submitting to their agenda. I have heard many times that the people who really run things are fond of waving it in our faces this way.
1950s integration by itself was not enough to destroy our national intelligence, 1960s hippie leftism also was not enough to destroy our national intelligence, 1970s drug culture was not enough to destroy our national intelligence. Social programming which forced fake roles onto our educational classes in the 1980s were the key and by the 1990s they had all melded together into what we have today as the dominant culture in our schools at all levels. It isn’t just the teachers and staff being reds that are the problem, we had that since the time Senator McCarthy was hunting reds wherever they were hidden. It took the combination of these destructive social elements unleashed on our youth to finally kick us down a few notches and make whites start performing at a lower level and by extension so did the blacks. The degenerated garbage culture embraced by the blacks who are no longer held to a higher standard is exported globally by mass media corporations hoping to cause a dumbing down effect on foreign culture. And we wonder why the world thinks Americans are violent degenerated morons…
The world used to think americans were all cowboys, now they think we are all idiots from rap music videos.
We all know various examples of how we appear to be dumbed down over previous generations but how many recognize that this is good for our handlers who want us to be easily led?
You may have an understanding of the social pressures placed on our people and think that you are immune to it’s effects since you see the problem and don’t fit into any of the manufactured archetypes I’ve mentioned, but I guarantee that at some level you are affected, if not by one I’ve mentioned then by another I have not. We must all inspect every aspect of ourselves and compare it to the best examples we have of the past. Our grandparents, great grandparents, pioneers, settlers, national heros (when is the last time we had one of those?), and great thinkers of the past.
Compare yourself to a man such as President Theodore Roosevelt. Compare yourself to Daniel Boone. Recognize that at one time the attitudes and performance of these men was not considered uncommon. Strip away the modern sentiment in your mind, the pop culture or subculture influences and take a clear view of these men from the past who challenged death and their own limitations to carve a destiny from this country. There are very few great men such as them today, there are no new legends of great men to inspire us to rise higher and fight harder and persevere. We live in an age of forced mediocrity that affects every race equally. Men aren’t men anymore or worthy of the respect we would give a man of the past. Women aren’t ladies anymore and likewise deserve very little respect when compared to earlier generations. We have been stripped of our heros and our inspiration.
If you aspire to be worthy of your ancestors and the men who carved this civilization from the wilderness you must become more like them in every aspect possible. Educate yourselves about these men and their exploits, inspire yourself to greatness based on their example, and mold your weak modern body into something which would be capable of surviving in an era before convenience and luxury were the norm. Become proficient in a skill, become an expert on a subject that interests you. Adjust your personal code to being one of honor and respect. Stop being selfish, think of the greater good and reject destructive individualist notions which were created to justify being less than your potential. Reject vices as much as possible. Improve your diet and above all learn to create. Consuming media does not improve you. Consuming television, movies, video games, or pointless podcasts made by other mediocre men does not cause you to excel, it makes you complacent. Think of the best interests of your ethnic group, it isn’t evil and hateful. Think of the best interests of your country, it isn’t immoral. Take pride in what you are and where you come from. Your heritage defines you. You come from a long long line of men who all worked and sweated and bled and suffered in ages much harder to exist in and they did it well enough to have carved a civilization out of the wilderness and breed you into existence. Give these men your respect and live up to their examples.
Further articles going into areas of personal improvement are in the works. Until then remember this, a real man is capable of accepting his limitations and faults and addressing them accordingly. If you are incapable of this you are not and never will be a real man. If you are capable I welcome you to join us on our journey to revitalize our people and serve as an example to the future.
