Why Europe is committing suicide

A good rant on how Europe's current auto-genocide arises from the same impulse as previous genocides:

To outside observers it's somewhat difficult to understand what's happening in Europe, because this is something that has never happened before. They do not quite understand why Europeans would accept the ongoing wave of mass migration that's destroying our continent.

The answer here is that Europe is stuck in an existential crisis. This is a crisis that has a prelude that began long before 1933, but finally reached a breaking point in 1945. If you're looking for someone to blame for the fact that Europe is committing suicide, here's a suggestion: It's not the Jews who are responsible, but rather, the Americans who ordered the German people to march through the concentration camps. This is not meant as an indictment of the Americans, but rather, to illustrate a point: This crisis isn't about Jews, but about guilt. Europe has a guilt complex. Note that a nation like Denmark, where most of the Jews survived the Holocaust due to Danish resistance, seems far more hesitant to embrace mass immigration that Sweden and Germany. The trauma that affects much of Western Europe has left Denmark relatively unscathed.

As I said, this problem began to develop long before 1933, when we realized that we effectively had complete control over most of the world. The white man ruled the world, so what is he to do with this power? It's a question we've struggled with for as long as we got this power. Throughout much of history, the answer was always extermination. That's what happened to the aboriginals of the New World. In other places it was more financially attractive to economically utilize the native population, by forcing them to produce luxury spices and other goods that could be sold for high prices to Europe's growing middle classes. Eventually this led to the realization that our presence effectively made other people's lives miserable. The publication of Max Havelaar in the Netherlands forced people here to begin to think about our relationship to the rest of the world.

Of course Europe was still confident at this point about the direction that history was heading in, so the idea developed of the white man's burden, where it was assumed that we would have to deliver the virtues of civilization to the people we conquered. After 1945 however, the tone become more sober. Under American pressure decolonization began and eventually Europe started to import millions of immigrants, in an effort to demonstrate to itself that it could tolerate diversity. The consensus at the time was that the migrants should maintain their own native cultures, the more exotic the better. Suffice to say that this led to a variety of problems we see today.

Whereas congenital differences between human races were somewhat of an obsession to us Europeans ever since we began to understand evolution, discussing such differences became taboo after 1945. There is however no physical law that obliges Mother Nature to endow each and every human race with the same temperament. If tens of thousands of years of evolution had left us all behaving and thinking similarly, it would be evidence in favor of a God directly intervening in his creation. We try to force reality to amend itself to our wishes, by shouting angry words at people who dare to notice differences between the newcomers and the natives, but denial of reality does not force reality to adapt to our beliefs. We go through great cost, to maintain the illusion that there are no differences, that can not be resolved through education. When newcomers commit mass sexual assault on the streets, we assume that they simply do not understand that Europeans do not appreciate it. Similarly, when they persecute homosexuals, it is assumed that they can simply be "educated" into accepting homosexuality.

The success or lack thereof of this European mentality of reality-denial can be seen in the wave of terror that has now flooded across all of Western Europe. Many people are afraid to leave their houses and many places are gradually returning to some form of tribalism, with vigilante groups and no-go areas for native Europeans. Europe is now beginning to wake from its dream and entering a nightmare, that is surprisingly reminiscent of an old nightmare we went through...In Europe, our moral disposition hasn't changed. We blamed the genocide on hatred and declared that we could solve it through indifference, which we use the euphemism tolerance for.

In reality hate was not the perpetrator. It was cowardice, which hides behind many different names. Cowardice means to choose the easiest path, to go along with actions that we know are wrong or to look the other way. It doesn't require education to understand why rape is wrong, but it doesn't require education to understand why genocide is wrong either. Nations have personalities, produced by the choices and experiences of generations of people who make up the nation.

How popularity destroys every cause and leaves a hollow shell behind

Over on Pedophile/Safe Space social media, someone made an insightful observation about how groups are destroyed by their own audience, in the process of becoming successful.

People who jump on any kind of bandwagon are usually incapable of critical thinking.

and also that

This fact does not say anything about "the bandwagon itself".

Meaning: You'll be able to find dumb, angry, vicious, ungrateful, pedantic, annoying, just SHIT people EVERYWHERE. Vegans, meateaters, keto guys, gays, straights, left, right, theists, atheists, whatever. Basically if you belong to ANY club, there's a high chance you're just doing it unconsciously to feel better about your shitty life/mistakes/self esteem. Personally I don't care or know enough about the specific subject here so I won't say anything about keto/vegan/etc. Bear in mind that for most people who jump on a bandwagon, it's likely that it's the first time they ever felt they belong somewhere, and that they know something that others don't.

So what does this mean for you guys?

It means most of you belong to the subredditdrama-club. You're not a Vegan or a Meateater, you're a Redditor. You are the only person on reddit who sees and calls out nasty/stupid/childish behaviour. You are the all-knowing oracle of virtually every subject/subculture/etc on Earth and you have both the capacity and the say-so to decide whether another redditor is misusing/defaming/misrepresenting/ something. You see all negative behaviour and you have a Dog-given right to judge it make fun of it. You sit on your majestic throne above these people and you bask in the glory of your comments making fun of people who you identify as X or Y .

Just take a look at the top comment:

Poor keto people. So angry, and they can't even eat the popcorn. I guess they can still have the butter, though.

Is it just me who's out of the loop on how fucking ridiculous and unworthy these "keto people" are, or is this comment more judgemental than it is actually observational and funny? Just to clarify, I'm not saying being judgemental can't be funny. What I'm saying is that I feel that a lot of reddit and especially this subreddit kinda seems like people just think they're on some moral high ground when it comes to anything. And it is fun to laugh at the immoral, the stupid, the crazy, the poor.. the common people. Or is it??? It seems like, doesn't it? But is it true, or is it a fucking disgusting mental disorder of evolution, civilization and esp. modern culture? And is it not ridiculous, that the people who laugh at the dumb and the poor are morally and emotionally dumber than the ones they're laughing at, without even realizing it?

So let me just tell you very plainly: in my eyes what you're doing is basically believing ( imagining, more precisely ! ) that you're somehow above the common person(idiot) who a certain thread is about. What you don't realize is that you're most likely the same common person(idiot), only with a different kind of idiocy; naturally, one which you yourself are probably unaware of, and usually come with a ridiculously inflated, unfounded sense of self-esteem. And I do realize that I'm being a little bit judgemental here, and I do admit that I most likely am a part of these groups as well. But let someone else be the judge of that.

You guys are basically making fun of people just like you because through some mental/moral distortions you aren't even aware of, you've reached a common conclusion that the combination of all of you here are better than anything anyone says anywhere, ever. You're laughing at people who don't know better because you don't know better. You just don't see that. You're essentially humiliating yourself. This concept is very funny to me in theory, but as I thought through it here I don't laugh, it makes me rather sad and feel compassion for humanity - I would guess that's the main difference between us but I know for saying that you'll think I'm pompous or something (I can't find the right word here, sorry) - and I don't give a shit. I don't derive my self-esteem from the opinion of others and I know that given you have an IQ and emotional intelligence high enough you'll feel the truth in my words.

I'm not sure about unsubbing because it can be somewhat entertaining, and if anything this comment came out of it, but I've had this feeling about this and other subs for a while now, just couldn't put it into words. I wouldn't even think of telling someone they're making gross generalizations, it's become so ridiculously common but for some reason this specific post did me in. This was a perfect occasion, thanks if you've read it, I hope you learned something like I did.
