For all regimes, growth expectations assume moderately competent population, otherwise go straight to 4. Re-running the race to ruin Liberals are baffled and infuriated that poor whites vote Republican, yet voting on tribal grounds is a feature of all multi-ethnic democracies, whether [in] Northern Ireland, Lebanon or Iraq.
Will it happen here [in the UK]? The patterns are not dissimilar.
In the election the Conservatives won only 16 per cent of the ethnic minority vote, while Labour won the support of 72 per cent of Bangladeshis, 78 per cent of African-Caribbeans and 87 per cent of Africans. The Tories are slightly stronger among British Hindus and Sikhs — mirroring Republican support among Asian-Americans — who are more likely to be home-owning professionals and feel less alienated.
Vast structures of historical irony shape his writings, at times even engulfing them. How otherwise could a proponent of traditional configurations of social order — a self-proclaimed Jacobite — compose a body of work that is stubbornly dedicated to subversion?
This can be seen, most tellingly, in his chosen name for the usurped enlightenment, the dominant faith of the modern world: This is a word that he appropriates and capitalizes within a reactionary diagnosis whose entire force lies in its exposure of an exorbitant particularity.
Moldbug turns continually to history or, more rigorously, cladisticsto accurately specify that which asserts its own universal significance whilst ascending to a state of general dominance that approaches the universal.
The route that it has taken, through England and New England, Reformation and Revolution, is recorded by an accumulation of traits that provide abundant material for irony, and for lower varieties of comedy. Yet, as the Cathedral extends and tightens its grip upon everything, everywhere, in accordance with its divine mandate, the response it triggers is only atypically humorous.
More commonly, when unable to exact humble compliance, it encounters inarticulate rage, or at least uncomprehending, smoldering resentment, as befits the imposition of parochial cultural dogmas, still wrapped in the trappings of a specific, alien pedigree, even as they earnestly confess to universal rationality.
Or denied that, in these words, reason and evidence are explicitly set aside, to make room for principles of faith? Could anything be less scientific than such a declaration, or more indifferent to the criteria of genuinely universal reasoning?
How could anybody who was not already a believer be expected to consent to such assumptions? That the founding statement of the democratic-republican creed should be formulated as a statement of pure and doctrinally recognizable faith is information of sorts, but it is not yet irony.
For that reason, they are associated less with revered predecessors than with the retarded, fundamentalist thinking of political enemies.
Sophisticates of the Cathedral core understand, as Hegel did, that God is no more than deep government apprehended by infants, and as such a waste of faith that bureaucrats could put to better use. Since the Cathedral has ascended to global supremacy, it no longer has need for Founding Fathers, who awkwardly recall its parochial ancestry, and impede its transnational public relations.
Rather, it seeks perpetual re-invigoration through their denigration. Paleo-puritanism must be derided in order for neo-puritanism to flourish — the meme is dead, long live the meme! If resistance to the War on Christmas is not yet established as the solid center of Yuletide festivities, it can be confidently expected to become so in the future.
The purposes of the Cathedral are served nonetheless, through promotion of a synthetic secularism that separates the progressive faith from its religious foundations, whilst directing attention away from the ethnically specific, dogmatic creedal content at its core.
As reactionaries go, traditional Christians are generally considered to be quite cuddly.
Even the most wild-eyed fanatics of the neo-puritan orthodoxy have trouble getting genuinely excited about them although abortion activists get close. For some real red meat, with the nerves exposed and writhing to jolts of hard stimulation, it makes far more sense to turn to another discarded and ceremonially abominated block on the progressive lineage:This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality initiativeblog.com specific problem is: repetition, organisation, coherence.

I’ve been in communication with Dr. Marik about his sepsis treatment. I’m not knowledgeable enough to have a very strong object-level opinion about whether it works, and there is a daunting graveyard of failed treatments for sepsis, but the potential benefit is so staggeringly large (sepsis causes *millions* of deaths per year worldwide, and .
