Asking for Trouble

The Uniqueness of Western Law: A Reactionary Manifesto, by Richard Storey

Part Two of Storey’s book is entitled “Socio-Biology.”  Mmmm…socio-biology in a book about the uniqueness of Western Law…what could go wrong?

This may sound mean-spirited, but my concern with the data is not to denigrate others so much as to better understand my own civilization’s place.

Good luck with that, Richard.  Of course, I guess I won’t get off scot-free either.  And before any of you highlanders get up in arms about my use of this phrase, it has nothing to do with Scotland, scotch, Scots, or any other derivative of the land of peat and bogs…I actually have many friends who are Scotch: Johnnie Walker and his brothers Blackie and Red…oh wait, that last part was probably a mistake.

Not to say peat and bogs are exclusive to Scotland, or that I have any negative feelings about any other part of the world with peat and bogs…and I don’t just drink Scotch Whisky; Irish, Japanese, Kentucky…I am very multi-cultural on this matter…and not that I have something against lowlanders or anything…man…this is going to be a tough post to get through.

There really is no way to ease into this.  What do you do with chapter titles like “In Search of Non-White Philosophers” and “Why There Are no Successful Black Nations…Yet!”?

Philosophy: One can search Africa, Asia, and China for philosophers and one might find a few; but all of these regions combined could not fill a one semester course for a serious student of philosophy.  One really can’t count Augustine.  Even though he was from Africa, he had an upper-class father (white) and a mother who was a Berber.

If you want a course on mysticism and primitive religions, the world is your oyster.

Of course, nothing against clams or any other member of the mussel family.

Nigerian professor Chigozie Obioma has written an article entitled “There Are No Successful Black Nations.”

“As long as we continue to ignore our own self-assessment…we will remain the undignified race.”

From his article:

Black elites and activists across the world have adopted a culture of verbal tyranny in which they shut down any effort to reason or criticize us or black-majority nations by labeling such attempts as “racism” or “hate speech.”

Not a concern of mine after this post, but who knows?

Nigeria, the most populous black nation on Earth, is on the brink of collapse. … A culture of incompetence, endemic corruption, dignified ineptitude, and, chief among all, destructive selfishness and greed has played a major role in its unravelling.  The same, sadly, can be said for most other African nations.

Look, I didn’t say it and Storey didn’t say it.

Storey asks why libertarianism is unique to the west.  This, of course, is undeniable – just as classical liberalism is unique to the west and just as the 1000 years of decentralized liberty is unique to the west.  Why?

It isn’t competition, science, property rights or consumerism that made the west; it was a cultural tradition that offered the foundation for these achievements.  One cannot parrot the achievements without owning the foundation.

What follows is a discussion of IQs (higher in East Asia, lower in Africa, in-between – but closer to higher) in Europeans); an ethos of libertarian aristocracies (consider the Middle Ages); a rational desire to systematize all enterprises; the ability to defer gratification.  These – in the combination as presented – have provided the soil in which libertarianism would grow in the west and only in the west.

Immigrating non-westerners will not result in their adopting these western traits; it will instead dilute these traits in society:

Professor Haidt has predicted that an increasingly ‘diverse’ society will so reduce trust as to make it unsustainable and dangerous:

“It’s the most intractable world we can inhabit, and it’s the one that will lead to the ugliest outcome.”

Look, I didn’t say it and Storey didn’t say it.


Here is a quote from Noel Ignatiev of Harvard University: “The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists.”

Noel is Jewish.  He can say this about whites.  Actually, anyone can say this about whites.  And whites are supposed to help this project along – and many are eagerly complying.

It’s a white thing.
