The West: Breeding Ravens

I remember an old Spanish saying my grandmother and my mother would throw at me whenever either or both felt I had acted in a disrespectful, stupid, ungrateful or uncivilized manner, "¡Cría cuervos y te sacaran los ojos!" ("Breed ravens and they will pluck out your eyes!") In other words, of course, your own kin will turn on you because they often are, to put it mildly, ingrates.

That saying plays in my head as I watch a conspiracy or unkindness of ravens, aka "youths," in our country and throughout the West, tear down statues, deface monuments, shout-down and threaten dissenters, insult and attack police officers, and loot public and private property--all the while using expensive iPhones to document their "courage" with selfies and video.

No other civilization comes close to the West in the amount of resources, praise, and devotion poured into its youth. What has all that expenditure of public and private resources and emotional investment gotten us?

We have before us quite possibly the most pampered, ill-mannered, ignorant, and arrogant generation in Western history. Notice how many "protestors" seem to have no problem festooning themselves with costly tattoos and gym clothing, and nesting in highly expensive and tony metropolises such as New York, Seattle, San Francisco, and London. Many, if not most, seem to engage in no-known labor, and have the time and resources to flap around, preening and playing at revolution, while, as noted, recording themselves on their pricey "smart phones." Not the grubby sans-culottes of 1780s France--not even close--these mobsters are well-fed, nicely clothed, healthy and wealthy cretins--better said, highly privileged and violence-prone cretins, bird brains, you know, ravens.

These ravens repeat empty-headed slogans, and screech about oppression from their perches of privilege down to working-class cops, many black or hispanic, and other ordinary folk who seek to go to work to feed their families. Indeed, the majority of those squawking about white racism and tearing down "white privilege" and "supremacy," and feigning offense over statues, road names, and Aunt Jemima syrup labels are, well-off white kids--most notably white women full of inchoate feminist resentment and rage. They have had their heads filled with a crude cultural Marxism; they live in a world almost devoid of facts and historical knowledge and context. Violent emotion rules.

The raven mobsters, for example, feel tormented, even driven crazy, by the insane dictates of today's cult of pseudo-science, eaten alive, for example, by the certainty of global climate change caused by capitalism and the fervent belief in the "mutability" of gender. No definition, no standard can hold up. All is fluid. Nothing is certain except that the West is evil, and our history must be erased. Only today counts. Back to Year Zero! Pol Pot call your office.

As I noted long ago, none of this agitation has anything to do with Confederate flags or Confederate statues. The progressive lynch mobs now prowling our streets don't know Robert E. Lee from Ulysses S. Grant; Abraham Lincoln from Jefferson Davis; Winston Churchill from Adolf Hitler. The progressive mobs have defiled monuments to the heroes of abolition who destroyed slavery, and to the heroes of WWII who destroyed real fascism. The mob's goals consist of producing destruction, and a paralysis of thought and action by the good people; they seek to generate doubt and hesitation, and, above all, fear.

President Trump must be careful not to become our President von Hindenburg, presiding over chaos and allowing the anti-freedom, anti-West, Communist-Fascist-Anarchists to own our streets and drive public discourse.

We have bred ravenous ravens.

Unless we shut down their hatcheries and nurseries, and put them into cages very soon, they will pluck out our eyes.

      Oh, the other one too? Seems the dogpile spck wanted me to introduce possible anti-social factors, involving the development of a female (rarely a male) gamete (sex cell) without fertilization, such asexual aberrations at this late hour were not intended, although one is prone to hypothesize on the inordinate number of goofy looking females observed in the MOB gatherings, which may draw in a swarm of male donors attracted by the opportunity to get lucky with a female of sorts.

  3. Thank you, Dip. That is very perceptive writing.

    I have been coming round to the point of view that we should make conscious efforts to learn from the Chinese -- not imitate them, but learn from their successes & failures.

    A generation or so ago, Mao stimulated the Red Guards, rather as Democrat rulers today are assisting the Take A Knee crowd. Those young Red Guards did their best to peck out the eyes of their parents generation who had experienced poverty, European exploitation, World War, and civil war. But that Red Guard insanity eventually passed, and today we see China as the Workshop of the World with arguably the best-educated broad youth of any major country.

    How did the Chinese people effect that turnaround? The Communist Party did not relinquish power, any more than today's Democrat clique are willingly going to surrender their grip on the USA's throat. And yet life for ordinary Chinese citizens has improved dramatically.

    There could be a lesson for us there in how to deal with our own Political Class's insanity.

    1. Chinese communists realized that their ideology wasn't the best approach. They ruthlessly maintained power while relaxing economic restrictions. If our present Democrats take power, we can expect that in 20 to 30 years they too will realize that their ideology was good for getting them into power but bad for governing. Meanwhile, our rights will be a memory.

    2. China has produced some elite students; but I doubt that there's world-class education in places like back-blocks Guizhou, Heilongjiang, Gansu, or Jiangxi. Further, while STEM education in China is excellent, a better education in the Chinese humanities is probably found in Taiwan, or even Singapore.

  4. There is also something to be said for the Tolai tribe of Papua New Guinea. They were cannibals due to the lack of large animals in the islands which resulted in few sources of protein. As a result they had no problem with juvenile delinquency as rebellious teens went into the pot.

  5. I just hope Trump doesn't decide that appointing Nancy Pelosi President of the Senate, which is about the closest equivalent we can get to Hindenburg appointing Hitler Chancellor in the hopes that a place at the big boy's table would induce them to stop brawling in the streets (they did, but not as the other politicians expected).

  8. I am happy to have found you again! I thought you were lost to the ether when GoDaddy pinched your domain. They have since sold it off to someplace called "Parking Crew". I worked in the ISP world, I am well aware that this is not just the first time they ruined a domain. There are many "Ravens" in the IT world, and it is within reason to believe that there could have been malfeasance motivated by ideology.

  9. True justice being dished out by relentless taunters on Jason Charter’s Facebook page — the Antifa punk arrested today for attacking statues. Have a laugh, before it gets taken down:
