The Cracks Are Showing

Cracks in Wall

The globalists that have made a serious bid for world dominance since WWII constructed a seemingly impregnable hegemony. However, you don't have to look all that closely to see that the cracks are showing.

In California's 25th Congressional District, carnival barker Cenk Uygur not only failed to win Katie Hill's (probably sticky) former seat, he may have helped split the Democrat vote just enough for the GOP to win it back. This, despite Google backing the self-styled Young Turk to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

That small glitch in the machine repeated itself on the macro scale, where not even hundreds of millions could buy New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg the Democrat presidential nomination.

Both of these failures on our ruling class' part are significant because they're signs of systemic failure. Everybody's heard that the tech giants have sworn a mighty oath to prevent another 2016. They're doubling down on rigging elections against Conservatives, but for all their considerable power, it's just not working.

Bloomberg's farcical run is a direct example of an actual oligarch stepping in to take an out-of-control situation in hand. He's supposed to be one of the guys calling the shots behind the scenes. The fact that he felt the need to personally intervene tells us there's a major snag in the elites' plan. His spectacular failure may augur that they're losing control entirely.

Speaking of out-of-control situations, the experts our rulers charged with fighting the corona virus pandemic are now admitting the battle is lost.

Every civilization throughout history has had a ruling class. The purpose of such elites is to keep order and ensure at least basic levels of security and prosperity for their people.

Any one of our global elites' failures cataloged above would be an ill omen regarding their tenuous hold on the mandate of heaven. Taken together, these disasters paint a portrait of a ruling class that no longer understands the systems of power they've inherited. Not only have they forgotten how to run the engines of civilization, they've forgotten what those institutions were built for in the first place.

All signs indicate that a period of transition is upon us. It's too early to predict what society will look like on the other side. But as with the transition between the fall of Rome and the rise of Medieval Europe, it will be those who hold fast to the Christian tradition that informed the West who keep the light of civilization burning.

  1. An elite whose method for maintaining their position on the pedestal was to destabilise the pedestal. Now, which is more likely to survive that instability? The vase or the pedestal?
    Thank God, as perfidious as they are, our enemies are idiots.

      A classic illustration of Nassim Nicholas Taleb's intellectual but idea.
      The most obvious take: most elites have never faced snybreal adversity but feel entitled to pontificate.

  2. Given how profoundly wrong Bloomberg got this, and how much money he stacked and burned along the way, I have to wonder if his business empire was built by someone else. Selling himself as the savior of NYC probably didn't play well anywhere. I can't imagine New Yorkers appreciating him taking credit for their grit and effort. I am pretty sure that the average Southerner has no use whatsoever for a rich Yankee technocrat. "Mike Will Get It Done" isn't quite "Dewey Defeats Truman," but it's a marketing failure for the textbooks.

    1. Bloomberg fits the original definition of a Robber Baron to a T. Instead of setting up a toll booth on a trade road, he positioned himself as the gatekeeper controlling access to America's financial data.

      Bloomberg's key error was equating himself to Trump. The two are nothing alike. Trump actually builds intrinsically useful stuff people like. Bloomberg is a rent-seeking middle man.

  3. If you look hard enough into any western country there is quite a lot of dissatisfaction to go around. You won't see it in the media, for obvious reasons, but the pendulum is swinging.

    The '20s are going to be very interesting indeed.

    1. You just described the conditions for a preference cascade. The consensus among smart dissidents was that nothing would really change until middle class normies started feeling the heat. Corona-chan has cranked up the furnace.

      And the realization that the elites by and large are mediocrities with undistinguished track records. Yet they puff themselves as genius with gravitas.

      A good example: the so called fourth generation leaders in Singapore.

    3. The political duopoly has decided what political product people will demand, and will hold to that until the mismatch of preference and product destroys them - one way or another.

      If I were advising our elites, I'd tell them that now is the time to make some token concession. Cut a deal with Trump that lets him say he built the wall while your long-term aims are advanced. Cancel some of the student loan debt. Throw a few mid-level cogs like Strzok, Page, or McCabe to the wolves to maintain the appearance of justice.

      If they were smart, they'd have figured this out on their own. Perhaps some have, but there's just too much bureaucratic inertia to course-correct even slightly. Either way, this doesn't bode well for them.

  4. They're committed to the idea that extremism begins by conceding in a small way to the wishes of the public. Because building half a wall is what started the Holocaust; forgiving some student debt gave the Bolsheviks their toe-hold, and permitting a few token executions of the most despised criminal elements in the French aristocracy eventually snowballed into the French Revolution.

    1. The Death Cult was always going to destroy itself. The question is how many others it will take down with it.
