It’s time to put an end to classical liberalism.

Classical liberals make a two-paragraph declaration of obsolescence

No one ever thought that classical liberals would ever get around to actually acknowledging that they are fine with getting you and your family killed by roving bands of Islamic ‘migrants’ who are permanently conducting hijra for the past 1400 years and are always looking for a new location to park their reactionary socio-economic caravan of rampant misogyny, homophobia, mestizaje and genocide, but here it is:

Charles Johnson / FEE.org, ‘Why Free Immigration is a Right’, 30 Mar 2017:

Well good God, of course it is morally wrong for nations to pursue their “self-interest” in anything, and especially in border control policies. People have self-interests that matter, morally; nations do not. Nations are toxic hellholes of false identity and purveyors of monstrous political violence.

Nations are not rational people; they are not free associations or contractual agreements; they are unchosen, coercively assembled collectives, whose interests are typically an abortion of, if not an outright war against, the moral interests of individual people which actually deserve to be cultivated, practiced and respected. For anyone committed to individual liberty, a nations’ “interests” deserve no notice at all except to trample them underfoot.

So, there is that. That happened. A classical liberal man actually wrote those paragraphs, and he was not intoxicated when he wrote them.

That excerpt really is basically a two-paragraph declaration of ideological obsolescence on the part of classical liberalism.

Apparently if you pre-emptively use force so as to prevent your enemies from pillaging your lands and killing your family, that makes you ‘a bad person’ or something. Crucially though, it also happens to make you a winner, which I think is the most important thing.

Separately, Charles Johnson is indeed correct when he says that nations are ‘coercively assembled collectives’ which wage ‘outright war’ against ‘the moral interests of individual people’. The process of state formation is indeed an inherently violent array of actions from which all other actions of the state cannot be extricated, and the law itself is essentially an opinion with guns and detention facilities behind it. That is completely true.

With that said, though. Does anyone actually care?

Literally nobody even cares, so whatever

When asked to choose between the ‘liberty’ to have some individuals make moral choices in complete chaos and uncertainty, versus the ‘monstrous political violence’ of the state which creates stability and guarantees the safe existence of the people from which actual prosperity flows, the people should always choose the state.

Liberty has to be properly understood as not ‘freedom from’, but rather ‘freedom to’. The task of the state is to steer a course that allows for the flourishing of prosperity without undermining the social-economic position of the dominant class which creates and reproduces state power, and without significantly undermining the ethnic composition of the people within the jurisdiction of the state’s territory, as genes are a productive force and as such are a factor in the creation of the prosperity atop which the state subsists.

Talking to the invaders is useless

If someone virtue-signalled to Arabs through enacting lax border policies and then framed it as an act of kindness in the social media domain in the hopes that this would somehow smooth integration (still a stupid idea, of course, as integration is a stupid idea), it would actually be just liberals signalling to other liberals in a de facto echo chamber, because Arabs actually barely find time to read their own Arabic print media much less finding time to read English language in the social media domain. This is a fact that is known among most security consultants and among almost anyone who has ever been involved in Information Operations in Mesopotamia after 2003. ‘The Arab man in the street’ does not read. The Arab guy in the street has a political understanding gleaned from the oral pronouncements of his local Imam, a surface level understanding of current events from Arab language television, and a tangle of mutually contradictory conspiracy theories shared orally or across social media. In the case where social media is used, engagement-rates among Arabs are low, which is to say, they do not actually click links.

Almost 100% of the hearts and minds ‘messaging’ that classical liberal thinktanks who are trying to ‘defend values’ have engaged in, has actually been sent into an echo chamber of Europeans and Americans congratulating each other for crafting increasingly sophisticated narratives which all point toward strategically stupid conclusions which undermine European security.

Meanwhile, the mostly male Arab Muslim migrant wave has been ignoring it all while sitting in an ideological trash dumpster of misogyny and homophobia, as they despise all the progressive gains that have been made in regions of the world other than theirs. They have no respect for any other ethnic group and they believe that it is their mission to demographically infest the whole planet.

Safe beneath the watchful eyes

Without security there can be no real freedom. Most people know this almost instinctively, and that is for example why the United Kingdom’s referendum on membership of the European Union delivered up a ‘Leave’ result.

The British people have displayed a revealed preference for the untrammelled full spectrum dominance of the British security state led by Theresa May and Amber Rudd, rather than a European Union which has fallen under the de facto control of Angela Merkel.

We can conclude from this that the British people enjoy actually winning at counter-terrorism more than they enjoy virtue-signalling to a foaming tide of Arab Muslim ‘migrants’ who can barely find time to read their own Arabic print media much less reading English in the social media domain.

The British people don’t actually believe in classical liberalism. They believe in being real people. And that is a reason for optimism.

Classical liberal ‘freedom’ supposes that individuals can be abstracted from their origins, their environment, the context in which they live and where they exercise their choices, that is to say, abstracted from everything that makes them who they are specifically, and not someone else. It supposes that the individual is always prior to her ends. However, there is nothing that can prove that the individual can apprehend herself as a subject completely free of any allegiance, free of any form of determinism. There is no reason why she would prefer that form of ‘freedom’ over any other social good. Such a conception ignores commitments and attachments to clans or spiritual sects, bonds of blood and soil, long-term economic class interests, and the fact that nations are the deepest and most enduring source of political experience. Classical liberal ‘freedom’ is a purely formal conception, which is completely incapable of capturing the rich tapestry of what a real person is.

The real person seeks ‘love’ and ‘eternity’. ‘Love’ is the wish that someone or something should continue to flourish forever, or at least, that they should ‘get the last word’ in the world before the story of humanity ends. In that sense, love is a desire to pursue victory and create a meaning where there was originally none. When standing alone, the individual is always defeated and approaching death alone is the most final of all defeats. But while death is a threshold which must be crossed and can only be crossed alone, it does not have to be approached alone. If the individual can pool her identity with the group, so that she becomes one with the will of the group as it solves the historical tasks which have been placed before it, then she is all-seeing and all-knowing forever and ever—capable of knowing what she is, and what she can become. She is really free and has attained ‘eternity’. 

Victory becomes attainable. We become the gendarmes who protect the actualisation of eternal love so that others can become part of it. We never die because this empire never dies, as it is constructed not only in the physical domain, but is also fortified in the domain of the mind. As such, we are expected to fight eternally for it. 

We are not afraid of the conflicts that lie ahead and we are not sorry about anything. 

Because love will emerge victorious over terror.

The self righteousness and clear augury to destroy the homeostasis of group systemicization (such as nationalism) evident in this drop quote from the quoted article is appalling:

“If you don’t want immigrants in your neighbor’s house, that’s tough for you, bro; you’ll need to keep your prejudices on your own property.” - Charles Johnson

Yes, liberalism has to die. Excellent find and call by you, Kumiko.

It is made clear in these monumentally negative statements by Charles Johnson.

I don’t necessarily agree with your agreement of this:

[The state] wage[s] ‘outright war’ against ‘the moral interests of individual people’.

I believe rather that coherent peoplehood, such as the state allows for, is requisite to individualism.

However, I suspect that your point is to be radically provocative

Posted by Sean Gabb / James Kalb discuss liberalism on Mon, 26 Jun 2017 14:37 | #

Todd Lewis is joined by Keith Preston (anarchist), Sean Gabb (classical liberal) and James Kalb (conservative) to discuss liberalism.


Keith Preston’s hair splitting is unhelpful, saying that many of the things that Gaab is attributing to liberalism go back to pre-modern times. Gaab answers correctly, in my opinion, that just because liberal ways were not called liberal in these times does not mean that these were not expressions of liberalism, albeit its roots, perhaps.

Sean Gaab does an intelligent job of laying out what is ultimately too naive a social outlook: classical liberalism.

Which admittedly, is not quite the same as the working definition of liberalism that I use, which is more like how liberalism works-out in the end - a maximizing of individual liberty at the expense of the conservation of group interests and a minimizing of accountability to those interests. Gaab would try to assert a principle that there should be accountability from government, monarchy and other institutions such as Church to respect these liberties and rules by which people can proceed unfettered; and that he is not actively saying that the inherited biology of a people should be disregarded…but he does not see that the liberal principles alone that he would abide and vote for will, in reality, undermine the accountability.

James Kalb does a good job of pointing that out - the destruction that ensues of liberal society is not simply the result of mistaken conceptions of liberalism, but a necessary unfolding of its ideology.

Comment, DanielS

What James will not do, I strongly suspect, is to trace the individualising and universalising attributes of right and left liberalism to their origins in the Pauline dispensation and the Judaic view of the gentile at the End Times (as an individualised, amorphous lesser-human mass).

Sean has more courage.  Actually, Sean has a lot of courage, and has spoken a good deal of truth in his time.  But he is as devotional towards his faith-object of liberty as James is towards his of Catholicism.  Obviously, religious faith is what it is, and cannot be explicated by the non-religious from the standpoint of personal experience, which is a communicational disadvantage.  Liberty is more interesting.  We can all fully grasp its heady attractions and its necessitous basics in the equal dignity of human life and the right of men not to be property.  But these are what belongs to us as a race.  They are not, of themselves, individualising or universalising in their outcomes.  As ethnic nationalists, and not national socialists, it is mete for us to hold the equal dignity of human life and the right of men not to be property unto ourselves, and to reject the liberal models which lead only to the reductionisms of the radically-free individual and the amorphous mass, both of them sans natural identity, sans truth, sans love, sans the wholly human.

Gaab probably has more mental strength.

And I didn’t mean to imply defense of Catholicism (you may both be right that the Church should not be persecuted but allowed to die a natural death or let to undergo a natural transformation), and I certainly did not mean to imply that Nazism was an answer.

It may have sounded as if I thought it was the goal to limit individual freedom. That is not the goal.

However, I agree with Kalb that liberalism as Gaab expresses it works out necessarily the way it has.

And I agree with you, I believe, that that is the case If it is not accountable to the ethno-nation.

In terms of final outcomes, liberalism’s great goal of a self-authorship got by the breaking of all the bounds, natural and social, is definitionally not a fully human condition, nor even a possible condition for human beings.  The freedom to choose, which this condition is intended to own and maximise, is not free if the human product is not whole, for such a being cannot cognise the truth of things nature to nature.  It is Cartesian.

Genuine freedom, as a condition existing as a possibility, so to speak, somewhat outside of the human being for the great bulk of its self-experience, attaches to human being in the transitional act of self-appropriation.  This freedom is natural and is not strained, and is the freedom in being.  I hold that it, and not the freedom of a notional entity to choose, is the true article.  This freedom in being perfectly vouchsafes the evolutionary function of the optimum selection of adaptive traits over maladaptive traits - the psychological “room” for which is precisely the extent of Man’s free will.

... put a little boy in the room:

Yahoo News, “Australian police charge Vatican cardinal with sex offenses,” 29 June 2017:

For years, Pell has faced allegations that he mishandled cases of clergy abuse when he was archbishop of Melbourne and, later, Sydney. His actions as archbishop came under intense scrutiny in recent years by a government-authorized investigation into how the Catholic Church and other institutions have responded to the sexual abuse of children. Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse — the nation’s highest form of inquiry — has found shocking levels of abuse in Australia’s Catholic Church, revealing earlier this year that 7 percent of Catholic priests were accused of sexually abusing children over the past several decades.

Cardinal Pell is one of the top advisors to Pope Francis.
