The Elite vs. The People

Every society produces a number of what might be called damaged individuals.  One such individual was Sergei Nechaev a nineteenth century nihilist and revolutionary.  Nechaev described the role of the revolutionary:

He despises and hates the present public morality in all its forms.  For him only that is moral which contributes to the triumph of the revolution.  All that obstructs this is immoral and criminal.  Day and night he should have but one thought, one purpose - merciless destruction.  With the purpose of merciless destruction the revolutionary may and often must live in society, pretending to be something he is not.  The revolutionary must penetrate everywhere: into the highest and the middle classes; into the merchant’s store; into the church; into the mansions of the aristocrat; into the worlds of bureaucracy, the military and literature.  Our task is terrible, complete, universal and merciless destruction.

Nechaev and his disciple are not a problem as long as they remain on the fringes of a society.  However if they attain positions on power they can become a serious problem.  We are experiencing this now.

A nihilistic elite has gradually gained control of the commanding heights of the West.  This has been pointed out by several Western commentators.  Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger remarked, "There is a self-hatred in the West that can be considered only as something pathological. The West . . . no longer loves itself; it now only sees what is despicable and destructive in its own history.”  Judge Robert Bork claimed, “Some of our elites - professors, journalists, makers of motion pictures and television entertainment, et al. – delight in nihilism and destruction as much as do the random killers in our cities.  Their weapons are just different.”  This claim has been repeated by Irving Kristol, Eric Hoffer, Herman Kahn and many others.   

Hostility towards Western civilization takes many forms and varies in intensity.  Some of this hostility stems from total ignorance of Western culture.  Mona Sahlin, a Swedish politician, “I cannot figure out what Swedish culture is. I think that is what makes many Swedes so envious of immigrant groups. You have a culture, an identity, a history, something that binds you together.”  Some of it is the result of indoctrination by the schools and entertainment industry.  South African playwright and singer David Kramer told People magazine in 1988, “I’ve seen whites come out of my plays crying hysterically. They come up to me after the show and say, ‘You have made me ashamed to be white.’ That is what I wanted.”  Kramer has been pretty successful.  People like actor Donald Sutherland stated he is “ashamed” of being a “white male.”  Lena Dunham has called for the extinction of white men.

Some critics have been very blunt in their condemnation of the West.  Susan Sontag asserted, “The white race is the cancer of human history.”  German politician Gregor Gysi remarked, “Every year more native Germans die than there are born.  That is very fortunate.  It’s because the Nazis are not very good at having offspring.”  Professor Noel Ignatiev at Massachusetts College suggests that “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites!”

Politicians have to be more moderate in their criticism.  Perhaps Hillary Clinton went too far when she claimed, “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?”  Barack Obama may have lost votes when he remarked, “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest . . .they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

One of the weapons used by the elite is third world immigration.  A criminal class has been imported for supposedly humanitarian reasons.  These mostly male refugees have abandoned the wives, daughters and mothers.  They do not appear to be showing gratitude for being accepted.  Former UK Prime Minister David Cameron  commented, “I found myself thinking that it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around.”  Not everyone views Muslim behavior as admirable.  A professor at the University of Oslo explained that one reason Muslims are disproportionately responsible for rape was that in their native lands "rape is scarcely punished" because it is generally believed that "it is women who are responsible for rape.”

Reporting on criminal activity by “refugees” is routinely suppressed.  Punishment is frequently little more than a slap on the wrist.  Examples:
Muslim Rapes Child in Sweden, Gets Two Months, Not Deported.
Muslim Appeals 40 Hours Community Service for Raping Child and Filming Assault
Somalian migrant who murdered asylum worker has been sentenced to psychiatric care in a Swedish court for manslaughter.
Migrant who repeatedly raped runaway schoolgirl and threatened to kill her spared jail.
African migrants Rape Swedish Teen, leave male friend with brain damage
given three and two-and-a-half years sentences. The government will try to deport only one of them, temporarily.
A 9-year-old Swedish girl was repeatedly beaten, sexually assaulted, and emotionally tormented by a group of migrant children at her school. Instead of reporting it to the authorities, the school decided to cover up the abuse. 
A Somalian refugee who raped two women and sexually assaulted two others will remain in the country following a decision by Scottish judges.
A teenager in Australia pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting 9 women and girls but was not sentenced to prison. Instead, he was put on two-years’ probation. The judge reasoned that, as a Muslim who had immigrated from Afghanistan, “seeing girls in bikinis is different to the environment in which he grew up.”
Hamburg gang rape teenagers' suspended sentences spark anger
A “17 year-old” Muslim youth named Mohammed raped a 13 year-old Swedish girl.  He was given two months in prison.
“A 14-year-old Swedish girl who was sexually assaulted in her school by two boys. One of them, a 16-year-old, suffers from an “impaired ability to understand what is right and wrong.” the verdict stated. He was therefore punished mildly and was sentenced to 100 hours of youth service plus 24 meetings with a social worker “in order to learn to make better decisions,” while the 15-year-old is considered by Swedish law to be too young to be held criminally responsible and has thus been set free.
Perhaps the most outrageous example is the Rotherham sex abuse scandal: 1,400 children exploited by Asian gangs while authorities turned a blind eye.

The incident involving the 9-year-old in Eskilstuna, Sweden illustrates the authorities’ attitude toward these incidents.  Instead of reporting it to the police, the school decided to cover up the abuse.  The principal in the incident involving the 14-year-old Swedish girl wished to remain anonymous.  He stated, “All three youths involved were our students here and all three are, in a way, victims in this case. The boy who was convicted has gotten a pretty harsh punishment, which turns him into a victim as well.”  100 hours of “youth service” will be an ineffective deterrent.  An additional factor in these assault cases is the age disparity.  Adult “refugees” are often placed in classes with children.  In Sweden they can be listed as “children” if they don’t look over 40. This was the case in the Rockville High School, Maryland incident.  A 14-year-old student was violently raped by two of her fellow freshman students, ages 17 and 18.  The governor of Maryland was seeking information about the incident.  He remarked, "My biggest concern is the Montgomery County School System and their lack of cooperation and the lack of information they've been providing.”  The school superintendent appears to be primarily concerned with the public’s “xenophobic” reaction to the incident.

This situation has confused Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Putin remarked, “In a European country, a child is raped by a migrant, and the court releases him. It doesn’t fit into my head what on earth they’re thinking over there. I can’t even explain the rationale – is it a sense of guilt before the migrants? What’s going on? It’s not clear….A society that cannot defend its children has no future.”  He made these comments in response to a case where an Iraqi refugee raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in a “sexual emergency.” His conviction was overturned because the Austrian court “didn't prove he realized the boy was saying no.” 

Once it is understood that the people in authority sympathize with the criminal everything becomes clear.  Theodore Dalrymple commented, “The laxisme of the French criminal justice system is now notorious. Judges often make remarks indicating their sympathy for the criminals they are trying (based upon the usual generalizations about how society, not the criminal, is to blame.”  Alice Vachss a former Assistant District Attorney in Queens County, N.Y., stated, “There is a large, more or less hidden population of what I later came to call collaborators within the criminal justice system.  There seems to be a residuum of empathy for sexual predators that crosses all gender, class and professional barriers.”

The criminal justice can be severe when necessary.  Michael Wolfe was arrested and charged with criminal mischief of a religious building, a third-degree felony.  Prosecutors added a hate crime charge because they believe Wolfe left a slab of bacon at the mosque, which is offensive to Muslims. The charge carries a possible life sentence.  Thomas Salbey who stood up to the Munich shooter after he killed nine people is facing being charges by a prosecutor for insulting the killer.  A British Man Jailed for leaving a bacon sandwich outside a mosque was found dead in prison.

There is a solution for people who disagree with their government’s immigration policies.  It was provided by Walter Lübcke, the district president of Kassel.   Lübcke announced that citizens who disagree with the government’s open-door immigration policy are “free to leave Germany.”
