Housing prices just keep going up. What makes anyone think this process will ever stop? Liberals conspire to restrict the supply of housing while dumping immigrants on American shores. This process shows no sign of slowing down. Already I have been priced out of living in Los Angeles.
People seem to think this is a one way pump. It is not. Eventually poor people in the First World will begin emigrating to the Third World to escape high housing prices. It has already started with expat communities abroad, and retirement communities in Mexico. What you are seeing is a planetary sorting effect based on income. There are more upper middle class people in the Third World than in all of the First. They will all want to buy housing in America or Europe. Nationalism isn't just about immigration. It is about your children and grandchildren being able to afford to live in the country of their ancestors. Everything follows the law of supply and demand. Frenchman can no longer afford to live in Paris. Eventually they will no longer afford to live in France. The same thing will happen everywhere. There is no law of nature that says that you will continue to be able to afford your rent in America or Europe. You could be pushed right out. . .
We already live in a Nick Land fantasy. We already live in a patchwork — in case you haven't noticed, Mencius Moldbug is a globalist, and patchwork is inherently a globalist vision. Consider what he is advocating: he wants to divide the world up into thousands of states, let people freely immigrate wherever they want, and then, once the poor are all clustered into ghetto city-states, let them die there. This is the world we already live in, only the patches are larger and the process is slower. Neocameralism is globalism. If implemented it would create a planet of miscegenated people stratified entirely based on IQ. The ideal neocameral "patch" is described as a sovereign real estate corporation that seeks to maximize its real estate value. Here is Moldbug on his own idea:
"A patchwork - please feel free to drop the capital - is any network consisting of a large number of small but independent states. To be precise, each state's real estate is its patch; the sovereign corporate owner, ie government, of the patch is its realm. At least initially, each realm holds one and only one patch. In practice this may change with time, but the realm-patch structure is at least designed to be stable."And;
"A Patchwork realm is a business - a corporation. Its capital is the patch it is sovereign over. The realm profits by making its real estate as valuable as possible - whether it is Manhattan or some ranch in Oklahoma. Even the oceans can and should be divided into patches; a naval realm is sovereign over, and profits by taxing, all economic activities within a patch of ocean."And;
"Which is a more valuable patch of real estate, today: South Korea, or North Korea? Yet before the war, the North was more industrialized and the South was more rural. Such are the profits of converting an entire country into a giant Gulag." — Source.Let me get this straight. A half Jewish guy who advocates hyper-globalism is the godfather of the alt-right? And his vision is the maximization of profits on real estate.
Oh, and this guy also hates democracy. And he thinks that the solution is direct elite control. Here he is worshiping progressive elite control and hating democracy;
"The original progressives (or Progressives) were original and iconoclastic thinkers, believe it or not. Just as we do here at UR, they found themselves grappling with difficult truths. One of these truths, which has revealed itself again and again ever since Plato, is this: democracy doesn't work. — Link to source.Really? Democracy works just fine in Switzerland where they have the purest form of democracy: direct democracy. Switzerland also doesn't have any immigration problem. Hmm. . . And Switzerland also doesn't wage aggressive wars for profit. As for Plato? He was the worlds first totalitarian thinker, and all philosophers acknowledge him as such.
Continuing with the quote;
"Or, as Croly puts it:
Majority rule, under certain prescribed conditions, is a necessary constituent of any practicable democratic organization; but the actions or decisions of a majority need not have any binding moral and national authority. Majority rule is merely one means to an extremely difficult, remote, and complicated end; and it is a piece of machinery which is peculiarly liable to get out of order. Its arbitrary and dangerous tendencies can, as a matter of fact, be checked in many effectual and legitimate ways, of which the most effectual is the cherishing of a tradition, partly expressed in some body of fundamental law, that the true people are, as Bismarck declared, in some measure an invisible multitude of spirits — the nation of yesterday and to-morrow, organized for its national historical mission.
"Here we see the seam between progressivism and reaction, under glass. Here at UR, we are perfectly happy to observe that majority rule is an arbitrary and dangerous piece of machinery, which is peculiarly liable to get out of order." — Same source."National historical mission." I detect totalitarianism — and a bit of Hegal? Or Marx? The "seam between progressivism and reaction." Meaning: the place where progressiveness (globalism) and reaction are supposed to meet.
He also says that majority rule is liable to get out of order. No dumb-ass. It is elite control which always gets out of order. Please observe that monarchies have constant civil wars. Also observe that as America has become less democratic it's politics has become more insane. In fact, the more America is ruled by an oligarchy, the more insane its' politics become. Could this be because the elite are inherently insane themselves? After all, a wealthy person who has never experienced hardship has never had to test their beliefs against reality, has he? These people can afford to be as delusional as they like. Money buys that kind of indifference.
Moldbug's entire shtick is to;
1. Observe that democracy is broken in some way.Imagine if a doctor said: "Cyanide is killing the patient. Clearly the solution is more cyanide and less patient." This is basically Moldbug's entire central thesis. Everything else depends on this.
2. Point out that elite control, (the Cathedral) has broken it.
3. Assert that the solution is more elite control.
The problem is ostensibly supposed to be the cure. But we have hundreds of years of experience with elite control, and we know that Kings are despots. Remember the, "right of the first night?" Hmm? Anyone? Bueller? ever see the movie Braveheart? It's called Droit du seigneur, as per la wik;
"Droit du seigneur (/ˈdrɑː də seɪˈnjɜːr/; French pronunciation: [dʁwa dy sɛɲœʁ]) ("lord's right"), also known as ius primae noctis (/ʒʌs ˈpraɪmiː ˈnɒktᵻs/; Latin pronunciation: [ju:s ˈpri:mae̯ 'nɔktɪs]) ("right of the first night"), refers to a supposed legal right in medieval Europe, and elsewhere, allowing feudal lords to have sexual relations with subordinate women (the "wedding night" detail is specific to some variants).Well, that's one way to practice eugenics!
America has a pedophile billionaire. Imagine a world were that guy is your king.
Do you really think that your progressive overlords would be any less insane in a modern monarchy? Remember, Moldbug actually wants progressives to rule you. He actually believes that they will behave responsibly if given absolute power. What a naive vision. And what if they decide to practice their sexual perversions on your children? What if the local lord thinks your son would look good in a dress? What is your recourse? Do you really think that these corrupt people wouldn't wind up ruling you? Imagine a globalist oligarchy with absolute power. That is what Moldbug's vision would really be, whether he realizes it or not.
No thanks. I'll keep democracy.
You are all fucking fools if you think you will be any freer under any other system.
Oh, and for those of you who hate immigration? There is absolutely no reason to think that monarchy will be any better on the subject. Granted, it will not have an incentive to import people to win elections. But it will also not have any incentive to not enslave people, import them, export them, or whatever. There is absolutely no proof that a monarchy won't be co-opted by globalists. The fact that ancient monarchs were not globalists is only caused by the fact that globalism did not exist at the time, and could not, because of the absence of technology. Today is different, and the elites can always afford more palace guards while they turn your country into a Third World hell hole. They will do whatever profits them at your expense. Donald Trump anyone? If he can sell out do you really think a king won't? Hmm?
I regret anything I have ever said in favor of monarchy. At this point I am a nationalist.
