Good Sense Dept.

     Good sense often seems to have been anathematized, if not outlawed. It’s still possible to have good sense, but to speak good sense where others can hear is becoming increasingly dangerous. It can cost you everything: Your family, your friends, the good will of your neighbors, your occupation, your business associations. Now and then it can even cost you your life.

     Good sense is expressed in a number of maxims. The one that comes to mind just now is a simple one:

Don’t go where you’re not wanted.

     Fairly straightforward, no? And awfully hard to argue against. But a whole lot of people don’t…quite…get it. They’re determined to force themselves on others who’d rather not be burdened by their presence. And their efforts in that direction create a great deal of tension and resentment. Occasionally it eventuates in violence.

     Herewith, a brief video from Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert. Please watch it.

     Good sense raw and unprocessed. It calls to mind the observation of Professor Helmut Schoeck that the typical response to generosity is resentment and envy:

     No one admits publicly, and hence public opinion does not admit, that ingratitude is the norm. It is astounding that countless benefactors allow themselves to be persuaded over and over that ingratitude with the resultant hatred is a rare and special case.

     We tried, White America. We tried our best. We told ourselves it was our duty to help, that we were atoning for the crimes of Americans past. And we gave without any reckoning-up.

     It’s time to stop. There must be a divorce. Not the sort Marjorie Taylor Greene advocates, but a racial divorce:

Whites must have their own nations.
Blacks must not be welcome within them.

     This will be condemned by the bien-pensants, of course. “It’s racist!” Damn right it is, baby. “It’s prejudicial!” You think we’re the only ones? The necessity has become too blatant to be denied any longer. Too much blood and treasure has been spilled in the attempt to harmonize inherently unharmonious races.

     Will it cost us? Of course. But as David Bergland has said, Utopia is not one of the options. All the alternatives are still more costly – and not always in dollars and cents.

    Eliminate welfare, AFDC, EBT, Head Start, Affirmative action, all laws concerning racial discrimination in housing, and employment, except within three “black opportunity zones” located at divers points. Whites will leave these zones of their own volition. In the Zones are free housing, UBI/EBT. In the Zone they’re on their own to maintain infrastructure and services. It would cost a fortune to underwrite the BOZ’s. It would be money well spent to be free of the blight.

    Funny thing about the truth…. it’s usually really hard to take, no matter how good it is or how well thought-of. The positives are sometimes difficult to see through the values the hearer brings to the table.
    For a population raised to be colourblind, it’s a real trick to fight through that training to see the nature of the situation as it really is. Like any set of learned responses, refutation is conscious and deliberate until the day when it becomes, at last, automatic. The black community is making whites racist again, because the white self-preservation instinct is kicking in as it is shown that we are being purposefully reduced, in some cases by blacks.
    It is very difficult to reconcile these things. You have to practice. This has a tendency to make you tedious company. If you want to survive this, however, it is necessary.
    Sorry about everyone’s feelings. HTFU.

    I’m pretty sure this video won’t change your mind.



    What bothers me is the number of people who walked by without taking that hulking beast out.

  1. […]      Just recently, an accomplished man who seems more courageous than most had occasion to say a couple of things that the Cancelers took amiss. One was that he’d been wrong in saying that aversion to the COVID-19 vaccines is wrong or ignorant. The other was even more controversial: […]
