What does America mean as a philosophical event? What is the place of America in philosophical discourse? Here is one possible suggestion.
A celebration of the spirit of America!An Open Letter to Hispanics On Behalf of Ron Paul
If this is indeed Ron Paul’s opinion, I would like to ask him a series of questions.
Firstly, would he say that the land which currently comprises the USA morally belongs to: a. the people of America; b. the US Federal government; c. the whole world; or d. the Mexicans?
Secondly, if the answer to the first question is anything other than a., in what sense is that consistent with libertarian beliefs about people having the unquestionable right to their justly acquired property?
If, on the other hand, the answer is a., I would like to know how forcing the American people to accommodate, on what is morally their property, 60 million strangers they have no wish to have anything to do with is consistent with libertarian beliefs about freedom of association? Does one no longer have the right even to decide with whom to associate on one’s own property?
I would furthermore like to know why Ron Paul believes that an unwanted minority, only in the US because of government indifference to who the moral holders of a property think should be let in to this property, would in any way support libertarian initiatives.
If, as I suspect, these are not Ron Paul’s genuine views, then I would like to ask the same questions of whatever anti-property, anti-freedom anarcho-communist came up with this Kulturkampf-esque plan.
Addendum: The offending passage has now been removed. The questions should still be answered by whoever thought it right to associate such a position with libertarianism. However, I would like to add the further question of why LRC felt the need to ascribe a wholly fictitious position to Ron Paul.
Professor Thomas Barnett, one of the pre-eminent national security theorists in the United States, calling for open borders:-
Excerpt from here:
“Latin will never be a truly dead language, at least not as long as ‘E pluribus unum’ appears on our money. That’s our national motto: ‘Out of many, one. ‘We’ve always been willing to welcome immigrants and help them become Americans. But the unity we once valued is unraveling. Once, new Americans were welcomed with a solemn ceremony that matched their commitment to their adopted homeland. Today’s new citizens have no such uplifting experience. To qualify they need only pass a standardized, multiple-choice test, often given in their native tongue. In fact, they’re not required to show much knowledge of English. If they can transcribe just one of two dictated sentences (correct spelling and punctuation don’t count), that merits citizenship. And the greater problem is that too many people don’t even go that far. Millions of foreigners live here today with no expectation of ever becoming citizens.”
The Failure of Democratic Nation Building: Ideology Meets Evolution (2005) is the second book on this subject by Albert Somit & Steven A. Peterson. Their first book, Darwinism, Dominance, and Democracy: The Biological Basis of Authoritarianism (1997), contends that democracy is very difficult to establish and maintain. This recent book looks at the subject again, with new warnings with regard to Iraq and Afghanistan.
They submit that “[O]ur basic thesis was that, contrary to the prevailing ideology, humans were genetically predisposed to authoritarian and hierarchical, rather than democratic and egalitarian, social and political structures. Even in a so-called Age of Democracy, we noted, democracies still constituted a definite minority among governments, as has been the case throughout the ages.”
That’s the new Canada by the way.

Steve Sailer has earned the ire of White Nationalists by his stated opposition to White Nationalism.
He adds further:
My views on secession, ethnic separatism, and the viability of the United States have dramatically changed, some may recall I once excoriated a Hispanic editorialist for advocating separation of California. Considering the many centrifugal forces at work in the USA, the only way, I see, to hold the center is by using terror, spies, survelliance to suppress the growing mood of separatism, and its not just White Nationalists - in fact the brew of separatism is quite strong in “ethnic” communities.
Lets face reality, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, and New York City are not places where Whites are welcome. The inhabitants of these cities are not like me, and I don’t want to live with them.
Now consider Senate Bill 147, the
Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act
which would allow Hawiians to govern themselves free from the Washington Tyranny, the bill also includes provisions to create a new Hawaiian monarchy. This bill obviously creates a path for secession.
I welcome the legislation, for I would like to see a new White ethno state carved out of the Mississippi and Ohio valleys - a red state republic which jettisons the third world mob.
Please, I welcome comments on these matters. Am I reading this right?
The extraordinarily rapid descent into anarchy and opportunistic lawlessness in New Orleans holds certain implications for the future of America. To be precise, a non-white majority America simply will not be like the white majority America of our past. The “ties which bind” have their utility. Without them all is unconstrained-
There have been reports of killings and rapes as well.
The US Constitution gives to congress formidable powers, including the right to declare war. Instead she has chosen to surrender before the will of the executive, and she likes it that way: after all it’s not your fault 14 Americans were killed in Iraq today! The capital building is still useful, though, as a theatre of the absurd.
The drama playing in the nation’s capital features congress investigating steroid use among baseball players. Baseball, if you don’t remember, is that game where Mexicans and Dominicans throw a small hard white ball. Here is one such Dominican baseball player spitting in the face of a white American umpire. I’m sure Congress won’t touch one! That show deserves an R rating, not suitable for family viewing.
Oh, it’s not all fun and games; my congressman is hard at work. Representative Moore is sponsoring legislation to rename a post office, in honor of a long serving political boss local to these parts: the “Ed Eilert Post Office Building”.
Since whites, we are told, have no ethnic identity of our own, it is probably for this reason my wife so effortlessly overheard a conversation between two “ethnic” co-workers. I’ll try to boil the story down the best I can.
After the American Boys Scouts defied the Homosexual Mafia, by refusing to seat Sodomites as Scoutmasters, they’ve come under siege by the media. Recently, I watched CNN cover the tragic deaths at this year’s Jamboree with particular zest. This is just the beginning of troubles though, in an apparent attempt to appease the Left they’re promoting themselves as multicultural. It won’t work, I’m sorry to forecast. Yes, I was too a Boy Scout, though I doubt any of my children shall be.
In previous posts and threads I talked about the potential, even inevitability for increased racial balkanization in the USA. Balkanization will throw a “monkey wrench” into the multicultural regime that is destroying us. The more the better, therefore.
Naturally, to be of permanent benefit it has to produce a political unit that is self-governing. So I was intrigued to read of the introduction of a bill that would allow a separate government for ethnic Hawaiins.
A little more, if you can stand it, on “On Genetic Interests” … and, yes, GNXP. But I promise, I’ll give you a break after this. So …
One of the most corrosive ideologies for a majority people’s ethnic genetic interests is so-called constitutional patriotism, which can be defined as “the nation as an idea”. Once a state is redefined away from an ethnic basis and toward being a creedal nation little political barrier remains against the genetic displacement of that state’s majority ethny.
