Black Folks, Let Pharaoh Go!

I really don't know how I missed this and I'm very late to the game but the black citizenry of Chicago, Illinois - homeland of President Barack Obama - are up in arms about the state of their city. For only the second time in my life, I'm seeing a glimmer of hope that black American's will eventually get tired of putting all of their proverbial eggs in the Democratic Party's political basket and getting almost nothing to show for it.

The first time was in March 2010. Tavis Smiley was holding a symposium titled "We Count! The Black Agenda is the America Agenda." During that conference, the glimmer of hope came from the most unlikely of sources: Minister Louis Farrakhan. Despite the racist overtones he made the following impassioned comment.
Farrakhan: Now remember, our dear sister [Dr.] Julianne Malveaux mentioned A. Philip Randolph. Man that was long time ago and the cry was jobs and justice. In the March on Washington in 1963 the cry was...
Crowd: Jobs and justice!
Farrakhan: In the 20 year anniversary of the March on Washington the cry was...
Crowd: Jobs and justice!
Farrakhan: We are now in 2010 and what is the cry?
Crowd: Jobs and justice!
Farrakhan: Well, wait a minute! How long are you gonna [sic] sit around begging white people to do for us what we have the power to do for ourselves? ... We have come up with black agendas but we've been looking to the wrong people to fulfill our agenda.

This is almost identical to the sentiment El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) expressed while with The Nation of Islam almost 5 decades ago. Malcolm essentially said we need to do this on our own and stop waiting for someone else to solve our problems. While I don't agree concerning separation from America, the idea of Black Nationalism needs to take hold if we are to improve the black experience in America.

Then on December 19, 2013, noted race-baiter Al Sharpton hosted a town hall meeting at Hyde Park Academy High School to hear solutions from panelists and residents to the massive violence in Chicago. The agenda was, of course, gun control but Rev. Sharpton got something completely different. The video speaks for itself.

Of course, this may be wishful thinking on my part. Blacks have been giving their vote to the Democratic party since President Lyndon B. Johnson famously said: "I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years." That was also said over 5 decades ago and hasn't changed since so I'm guarded. Nevertheless, as things get worse there may be a change coming. It would be ironic that it took a black Democrat coming to power in the U.S. to make blacks realize that voting for the Democratic Party is never going to solve their problems.

Open Your Eyes

I haven't written a blog entry for a long time and I was wondering why. I could blame my unemployment status or being busy. However, the real reason is apathy. I'm apathetic about American society and the direction that we're going. I still hear many things that politicians and pundits say that arouse my ire but I'm beginning to believe that it's all pointless.

You see, at one point I had a secret desire that I think most conservative libertarians have. To wit, that one day the liberal collectivist agenda would actually get fully implemented and then people would see how horrible it is and go the other way. Well, to some extent that has happened with ObamaCare. It is a horrible program with devastating political and financial consequences, many of which have yet to be realized.

When I tell you that it's going to get worse I'm not talking about marginally worse. I'm talking about a complete collapse of American society as we know it. I believe that if ObamaCare is ever fully implemented it will be the tipping point. From there, it's only down. You see, ObamaCare is accelerating a financial collapse that has been years in the making. Those that are intelligent and truly run this country know this and they just don't care. They are too busy enriching themselves to care. Don't believe me? Watch the video below. The title of the video is misleading. It is the entire political class that is corrupt not just the Democratic Party.

Moreover, even without ObamaCare, we are nearing the collapse. So I've been mentally preparing myself for that eventuality. Those of us that can see it coming are truly horrified. Those that are blind to its existence are in for a massive shock. Meanwhile, the power brokers just don't care because they are preparing and their enablers in the mainstream media are busy obfuscating the collapse to the public by playing the class warfare card.

You see, envy is a powerful tool and not one of us are immune from it. They know that and will play it up. The newest cause célèbre to confuse the masses is income inequality. You need to look no further than New York Times polemicist Paul Krugman.
Most people, if pressed on the subject, would probably agree that extreme income inequality is a bad thing, although a fair number of conservatives believe that the whole subject of income distribution should be banned from public discourse. In short, what’s good for the 1 percent isn’t good for America.
Krugman stopped being an economist a long time ago and now shills for liberal collectivism.

What's more unsettling is the aftermath. You see, unlike my dream that people will wake up from the collapse what they will really do is blame capitalism and the rich. Why? Because our government has had a vested interest in keeping its citizens unknowledgeable, unthinking, uneducated and incapable of critical thinking. You see, there is no such thing as common sense because there's nothing common about it. It is utterly uncommon to be sensible and the more people I talk to the more I realize that to be true.

Do I think I'm better than everyone else? No, hardly. I just have a perspective that many don't have and aren't willing to cultivate. I am by nature a contrarian, only believing in what I can prove and adjusting my beliefs unequivocally when the data changes. The data is unambiguously negatively and unlike "climate change" is provable. We as a people are not heeding the admonition of George Santayana.
Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
The events of today have happened before. They will happen again.

Meanwhile, I've been trying to ascertain the next global collectivist cause célèbre. They have moved from Eugenics to The Population Bomb to DDT hoax to Global Warming Alarmism to the Genetically Modified Organism hoax. I've finally realized that the next cause célèbre will be the collapse of capitalism.

So open your eyes because the totalitarian state that collectivists have been longing for is on its way and nothing can be done to stop it.
