Organizing Our Environment

Blueprints of matter and mind.

Excerpt from a useful Counter-Currents comment:

…I realized that there is a likely connection between the way we think/act and the way our environment is organized.

There is something to this of course, particularly for the masses, but likely affecting even the “elite” to as well.  “The way our environment is organized” can include many things.  Obviously, at its most basic level, demographics and culture.  The “behavioral sink” is real.  I’ve noticed that White behavior declines as the non-White – particularly Black and Hispanic – portion of the surrounding population increases.  Now, part of that is simply White flight and selection: many higher-quality Whites flee diversity, leaving behind others more likely to ape (pun intended?) non-White behavior.  But I suspect that is not the full story; to the extent that higher quality Whites live among diversity, their own behavior may be coarsened and degraded by the experience.  No doubt all of the poisonous and vulgar cultural artifacts brought to us by a globalized, multicultural, and vulgar Judaized society affects (negatively) White behavior.

I suspect though that the commentator in his/her comment is concerned more with the physical structuring of our environment: for example, the architecture, the degree of urbanization (or lack thereof), and the entire milieu a person find themselves in.  No doubt one’s way of thinking would be affected living in urban vs. suburban vs. rural environments, and not only because of differing demographics and culture. Architecture would have a large effect: different styles are not only the product of a way of thinking but may feed back and affect the way of thinking itself. One wonders if Traditionalist vs. Futurist architecture and city planning would influence one’s preferences for those opposing worldviews: snug in your hobbit hole vs. reaching for the stars.  My article on avant-garde fascism touches upon some of these matters in more depth.

Understanding of these matters can clarify our realization of how current organizing of our environment affects us and our race, how to resist negative and promote positive influences, and how we may want to physically structure the environment in the ethnostate (or Imperium, eh?) to mold population-wide ideals and preferences in the desired directions.  Aesthetics are important, architecture, planning of living spaces, all of it.  The blueprint of our physical environment can be the blueprint of the ideals we strive for.

6/8/17: Behold a Hypocrite

Nonsense from a certain weasel-faced hypocrite.

Christianity is the religion of the higher IQ, the more empathic, the bigger-souled, the guilt-based (inner morality); it’s a religion for a people whose impulse is to transcend their human failings and better themselves, rather than to embrace their will to filth and stamp a seal of approval on their avaricious barbarity.

You mean, like: rejecting hedonistic nihilism and promiscuous sex?  You mean like getting married to a woman of your own race and not miscegenating with Negresses with “gravity-defying asses” or with Asiatrixes with wandering fingers?  You mean like “love thy neighbor” as opposed to snarky “shiving?”  This Roissy has to rank among the most outrageous hypocrites on Earth.

Now of course there are exceptions…

Meet Jimmy Wideassmann.

I’m of the opinion that a religion is less an influence on culture and society than it is a manifest revelation of the genetic foundation of the people who profess belief in it.

Absolute nonsense.  

Regrettably, Christianity, like its people, has “out-evolved” itself — it evolved to where it was always logically heading…

So, if Christianity was “always logically heading” to self-destructive Universalist cucking then (1) what good is it?, and (2) what does that say about the “genetic foundation of the people who profess belief in it?”  If we’ve all “out-evolved” our adaptive instructs, what now?  Should we just lay with the aforementioned Negresses and Asiatrixes and leave saving society to “the anti-poolside chumps?”

Those who think the White West can be unyoked from Christianity and not just survive but thrive are fools…

That makes me a fool then.  Or maybe someone who believes we need to move on to the next High Culture.

Christianity can no more be excised from the West than charity, empathy, genius, poetry, and high trust can be cut out from Western societies without permanently altering the character of the people. Discarding Christianity is taking a hatchet to a part of the essence of European man and expecting him to walk off the operating table unchanged…

But, Jimmy, if Whites have evolved past adaptive fitness and are riding the Cuckstianity horse into genetic oblivion, maybe some operating table change is drastically needed?

My opinion: Christianity must be mercilessly destroyed.  Crush the infamy!

Contrasting Ethnocentrisms

Contrasting ethnocentrisms.

One can say that the type of Middle Eastern ethnocentrism noted by many observers as characteristic of that region is formally analogous to the idea of a White ethnostate and the pursuit by Whites of their (very) legitimate racial interests.

But there is a fundamental difference.  Salter has proposed, and I endorse, the idea of Universal Nationalism – that every people have the right to preserve their own uniqueness, both biological and cultural, and this applies to non-Whites as well as Whites.  That’s an enlightened ethnocentrism.

However, on the other hand, Middle Eastern ethnocentrism is characterized by an aggressive dual morality and an expansionist, imperialist mindset.  Thus, one Middle Eastern people strive to be at the top of the human energy pyramid, both parasites and manipulators, those who oppose all nationalism except their own, and those who promote multiracialism and multiculturalism to destroy the West and the White race. Another group of Middle Easterners – and other non-Whites who follow a Middle Eastern High Culture – wish to colonize the West through their mass migration and impose their own civilization on Westerners, both a demographic and a cultural form of colonizing imperialism.  Thus, in contrast to Europeans, the well-known ethnocentrism of the Middle Eastern High Culture is aggressively particularistic and definitely not universal.  Universalism it seems is a trait of the West and of the West only.

Importance of Culture for EGI

Culture influences EGI.

At my other blog I had written about the importance of gene-culture interactions and how the concept can be used prescriptively, not only descriptively, through the convergence of European genetics (without panmixia!) through a sealing off of Europeans from non-Europeans, and low level gene flow over time among the former and none between the former and the latter – a concept of genetic concentration based on Identity (current genotypes and phenotypes, culture, history, etc.). Thus, culture is directly related to EGI, and directly influences it over historic time.
I again cite this paper that I briefly mentioned before that describes the process as occurring in the past. Note how NEC genetics has been radically changed by an important cultural-historical shift (Islamization). Note also that the more EC-like genetics in the Levant (of important when considering pre-Islamic Levantine gene flow into Europe) were Middle Easternified. In general, actual genetic data tend to go against the fantasies of “the movement.” Emphasis added:

Abstract 

The Levant is a region in the Near East with an impressive record of continuous human existence and major cultural developments since the Paleolithic period. Genetic and archeological studies present solid evidence placing the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula as the first stepping-stone outside Africa. There is, however, little understanding of demographic changes in the Middle East, particularly the Levant, after the first Out-of-Africa expansion and how the Levantine peoples relate genetically to each other and to their neighbors. In this study we analyze more than 500,000 genome-wide SNPs in 1,341 new samples from the Levant and compare them to samples from 48 populations worldwide. Our results show recent genetic stratifications in the Levant are driven by the religious affiliations of the populations within the region. Cultural changes within the last two millennia appear to have facilitated/maintained admixture between culturally similar populations from the Levant, Arabian Peninsula, and Africa. The same cultural changes seem to have resulted in genetic isolation of other groups by limiting admixture with culturally different neighboring populations. Consequently, Levant populations today fall into two main groups: one sharing more genetic characteristics with modern-day Europeans and Central Asians, and the other with closer genetic affinities to other Middle Easterners and Africans. Finally, we identify a putative Levantine ancestral component that diverged from other Middle Easterners ∼23,700–15,500 years ago during the last glacial period, and diverged from Europeans ∼15,900–9,100 years ago between the last glacial warming and the start of the Neolithic. 

Author Summary 

Population stratification caused by nonrandom mating between groups of the same species is often due to geographical distances leading to physical separation followed by genetic drift of allele frequencies in each group. In humans, population structures are also often driven by geographical barriers or distances; however, humans might also be structured by abstract factors such as culture, a consequence of their reasoning and self-awareness. Religion in particular, is one of the unusual conceptual factors that can drive human population structures. This study explores the Levant, a region flanked by the Middle East and Europe, where individual and population relationships are still strongly influenced by religion. We show that religious affiliation had a strong impact on the genomes of the Levantines. In particular, conversion of the region’s populations to Islam appears to have introduced major rearrangements in populations’ relations through admixture with culturally similar but geographically remote populations, leading to genetic similarities between remarkably distant populations like Jordanians, Moroccans, and Yemenis. Conversely, other populations, like Christians and Druze, became genetically isolated in the new cultural environment. We reconstructed the genetic structure of the Levantines and found that a pre-Islamic expansion Levant was more genetically similar to Europeans than to Middle Easterners. 

These results suggest that population migration to Europe from the Near East could have started after the LGM warming and continued until the Neolithic. In addition, these results show that the modern European genetic component is more recent than would be expected from a component that developed from the initial peopling of Europe in the Upper Paleolithic ∼40,000 y.a.

An Interesting Counter-Currents Comment

On White Identity:


I am inclined to agree with Jonathan Bowden and others: white identity has to be given and must claim an upper edge and must be seen as an advantage, as more robust and meaningful than merely holding to a classical segregationist argument (my impression of Taylor). A segregationist’s mentality is crucial, no doubt, but the real power in white identity is our link with Europe’s intellectual and cultural projects and achievements. It is part of the tragedy we are facing that fewer and fewer can define value in this way.


All true, but there also must be the underlying biological/EGI component as well.  But, yes, actualizing a High Culture, as Yockey would say, is one foremost forward-looking identity-building project.
