Food for thought.
Read this. Excerpts, emphasis added:
Getting it wrong because decision-making was freighted with unreasonable expectations might result in consequences that range from the merely amusing to the deeply frustrating to the existentially threatening.
The same continuum of consequences from “the merely amusing to the deeply frustrating to the existentially threatening” equally describes decisions on topics related to race and civilization. Some of the nuttiness of the SJWs or the HBDers or Der Movement is merely amusing. Some is deeply frustrating and many merge seamlessly into the existentially threatening. It is sometimes difficult to “bin” a particular decision (or meme) into any of those categories, since the effects of a seemingly “merely amusing” decision or meme may quickly become frustrating and then threatening. It also depends on your point of view. For Joe and Jill Sixpack, decisions about whether to try and contact intelligent alien life are amusing – “the nerds are trying to contact the little green men.” Others may become frustrated; Tyrone Carjacker may complain – “why is Whitey wasting money on that instead of increasing my handouts?” Intelligent Whites may feel threatened by others revealing our presence to potentially dangerous extraterrestrials. Likewise, many short-sighted Whites are amused by the concerns of WNs, while SJWs are frustrated that WNs care about race, while the WNs themselves view the problems they are concerned about as existential threats.
We proceed by first assessing possible risks and benefits of First Contact. The daunting language problem serves as the linchpin between possible risks and benefits. We then examine the underlying political problem before offering some conclusions about optimal public policy making.
Such balancing of costs and benefits were never done with respect to current racial policies in America and Europe as they concern the racial interests of Whites.
Possible risks…What worries pessimists is the possibility that silence is motivated by rational existential fear. A preference for survival as a species and extraordinary uncertainty about possible risks attending contact between different intelligent technological species may have persuaded most species to avoid alerting others to their own existence…When Stephen Hawking warned against alerting any extraterrestrial civilization to our existence he offered as a familiar cautionary example the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus. It follows that silence is thus a plausible strategy for a risk-averse species because the result for any other species that might be listening is indistinguishable from a universe empty of species with technological civilizations.
If only we had the same prudent risk aversion for multiculturalism. Speaking of multiculturalism and diversity, another explanation for the “silence of the endless wastes of space” is this interpretation of The Fermi Paradox, which is directly related to the race question.
That all of those encounters ended badly for one party, frequently involving population crashes and extinction, should not be ignored by policy makers. We note, however, that the analytic value of these analogies is constrained by three considerations. First, there are no data for…encounters between populations of intelligent but unrelated species, which would encompass First Contact.
What about Europeans and East Asians?
Also, if you are going to make analogies between Alien-Human First Contact and European-Colored First Contact, then you should follow the latter to its ultimate conclusion – reverse colonization of Europe by the Third World, Coloreds using European technics for Colored empowerment and to endlessly multiply, and guilt-wracked Europeans groveling to the world of Color. Will invasive Aliens crumble and grovel to Humans the same as Europeans have done to Coloreds?
What matters here is that terrestrial analogies to encounters between populations offer the only empirical information for assessing the risks of First Contact. It follows that silence is thus a plausible strategy for a risk-averse species because the result for any other species that might be listening is indistinguishable from a universe empty of species with technological civilizations. Even if every intelligent entity would be benevolent towards other intelligent entity given the opportunity to interact, an implicit silence norm might be self-reinforcing as species choose to interpret the uncertainty inherent in the result as possible evidence of the rational behavior by other species. If you do not hear anyone else speaking, then either there is no one to talk to or they may know to be quiet for a very good reason.
And maybe the fact that non-White peoples tend to avoid multiculturalism and diversity within their own nations suggests that they know that it is best to be racially homogeneous “for a very good reason.”
Comparing Chinese with German, Christian Helmut Wenzel notes how the tendencies of (human) languages derived from their cultural evolution create habits of thought. For example, Chinese language requires Chinese speakers to be more context sensitive than German language requires of German speakers, both in text and in speech. In another example, Chinese speakers use vertical spatial metaphors to reference time—for example the future is described as “down”—while German speakers use horizontal spatial metaphors to reference time.
That is quite remarkable, and underscores how alien the Chinese (and other East Asians) are from Europeans (as represented by Germans) – their conception of time itself (!) is radically different. How can the thought processes of such different peoples – akin to different species – be bridged? It cannot be done. Indeed, we must consider the possibility that East Asians are more alien to Europeans than are sub-Saharan Africans.
Benefits…What do political decision-makers know about the benefits attending First Contact? The answer is that they know very little. Indeed, the claimed benefits appear to reflect wishful thinking…It sometimes seems as a means of inoculating the public against xenophobia about human Others.
That is outrageous, particularly when we consider that all of these “means of inoculating the public against xenophobia about human Others” are aimed solely at Whites. No one is attempting to lessen Chinese ethnocentrism and xenophobia; it is only Whites who are targeted for thought control, to break down their defenses so they lower their guard against the Other. Speaking of existential threats, this constant meme war against Whites – now including leveraging SETI for anti-White memetic propaganda – is the prime existential threat we face. We need to worry about that before we worry about the little green men.
More to the point, concerns about extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI – the “S” in SETI being “Search”) should increase, not decrease, White concerns about their racial survival. Who should be at the forefront of humanity’s attempts to interface with ETI? The idea that it could be sub-Saharan Africans, including African-“Americans,” is absurd. Who? Muslims? Hispanics? Who? Do you trust East Asians and Jews to do so – or would you fear that they would sell out the rest of humanity for their own racial self-interest? Who? South Asians? New Guineans? Australian Aboriginals? The race you would want to do this is the same race you would trust to deflect an asteroid or comet strike – Whites. And it would have to be a mixed group of White types. Leaving it up to the Nordic “high trust northern hunter gatherers” means we’ll have a “yes we can” campaign to facilitate an alien invasion. Swarthoids and Slavs would be more level-headed, but the Swarthoids would be singing to the aliens from balconies, while the Slavs would be swilling vodka. A coordinated pan-European White response would be best. Only a mixed White response can leverage the strengths of each White sub-type, while masking each group’s weakness. Such a response would by necessity require the continued racial existence of Whites.
Belief in the benign character of any extraterrestrial entity is sufficiently common among members of the attentive public that The Planetary Society uses it to raise money…
Tin cup rattling.
What do political decision-makers know about the risks attending First Contact? The answer is woefully little, and what they do know is decidedly woeful…What do political decision-makers know about the risks attending First Contact? The answer is woefully little, and what they do know is decidedly woeful…Memes, in the original sense that Richard Dawkins coined the term, could be demoralizing and disruptive in the same manner as pandemics. As we are discovering in the 21st century, information itself may be weaponized.
Indeed, memes are being weaponized to hasten White extinction. What if ETI recognizes that Whites are the biggest threat to alien domination of the Earth, and utilize meme warfare aimed at Whites? What if Jews sell out humanity and help the aliens devise anti-White information warfare (a skill set the Jews have in abundance and one that they have much practice using).
Given the worrisome “cat-killing” curiosity common to our species, some may be tempted to respond to a radio signal before it is deciphered and before it is determined whether humans are the intended audience….The time horizons for decision makers are typically much shorter. Long-term consequences of even the most momentous policy making may be discounted in favor of near-term advantages that can be reckoned in public opinion polls and election outcomes.
Indeed, short-term thinking is a problem, particularly among capitalist oriented societies in which making a quick buck at the long term expense of societal stability is prized.
Decision-makers are no less prone than anyone else to errors of misperception that are the product of a human proclivity to tell one another stories in which missing information is replaced with supposition…These tendencies to misperception may be reinforced by both the “groupthink” syndrome identified by Irving Janis and the competition between bureaucratic organizations even during existential crises identified by Graham Allison and Philip Zelikow.
Same for racial crises.
The political problem is initially one of choosing between non response and delayed response…any response to the message should be delayed at least until the message has been deciphered and the intended recipient identified. Potential existential threats warrant decision making patience born of extreme caution.
The same applies to racial decisions. Patience and extreme caution would counsel a rejection of mass migration, miscegenation, etc. Why radically alter a society and a population without fully understanding the ramifications? Particularly since what we do understand tells us that it’s disastrous.
Non-response will require official messaging to dampen both public and scientific enthusiasm. As the experience of nuclear deterrence during the Cold War reveals, news audiences can be persuaded to accept the strategic logic of preparation coupled with inaction. What that is likely to require are periodic official reports on progress in deciphering the message together with a narrative emphasizing the possible existential threat. Although it rubs against the grain of thinking since the beginning of the Modern Era, humans are proficient at living in a state of fear. Indeed, traditional societies are characterized by hostility to strangers, finding in that antipathy a source of social unity.
Ahh, now they say that hostility to strangers can be a source of social unity, while before it was that we need to use SETI to break down xenophobia. The former is for non-Whites, while the latter poison is targeted to Whites only.
Unless the message can be determined to have been intentionally transmitted and that humanity is its intended recipient rather than some other extraterrestrial entity, then not responding remains the optimally rational decision. The value of not responding would be reduced, though not entirely eliminated, if it is determined that humanity is the intended recipient because that would indicate knowledge of our location in space and perhaps other information. Not responding to a message would deny the extraterrestrial entity additional information that might render humanity even more vulnerable. If the message evidenced some malign intent in the form of a threat or weaponized meme, then not responding remains the optimally rational decision.
Another optional rational decision – racial homogeneity.
There are possible advantages to listening in on communications between extraterrestrial entities without their knowledge. Given prophylactic measures to avoid releasing a weaponized meme, the intelligence collected through covert monitoring could be used in deciding whether and how best to respond to a message. Indeed, such monitoring might provide the benefits of First Contact without incurring the risks.
We can interact with other races with everyone staying in their own homelands, without incurring the risk of multiculturalism in the “West.”
The relatively high probability of the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence has led to conversation about the possibility of prolonged communication with such distant intelligences. A number of logistical details beset and make problematic any attempt to engage in the communication between Earth and whatever lies in the great beyond that might speak back to us. That engaging in such communication will be advantageous is by no means a foregone conclusion. Indeed, there are good reasons to suspect that the encounter will be either non-advantageous or disadvantageous, and very possibly extraordinarily dangerous.
Just like multiculturalism is “extraordinarily dangerous” for Whites.
What a national political decision-maker is likely to seek upon encountering an extraterrestrial radio signal will depend on both their relative risk acceptance and on their willingness to act in concert with other national political decision-makers who are in possession of the same information. At present, the bureaucratic scientific apparatus for detecting such is still limited to a handful of countries, but as that number grows a coordinated response becomes more difficult, not the least because of the temptation to defect from a policy of restraint by seeking an advantage in establishing communication.
Just like some Whites succumb to the temptation to be race traitors in order to secure personal advantages within the System.
