In Washington D.C. the Uber driver Mohammed Anwar was murdered by two car-hijacking teenagers in the most brutal, revolting and meaningless fashion. Who is to blame?
The easy answer is society. Everybody but the murderers could have provided better education, welfare and whatever the left-wing wish list of the day asks for. How convenient. But the easy answer is, ‘the girls and the girls only.’ The charm of this answer lies in the ease of ignoring the left-wing wish list. With two easy answers I was prepared to record a short video, but it became a long one.
The tension between individualism and collectivism is felt in every school of thought. Even Muslims insist on individualism to vaporize their responsibility. No group should be judged for the acts of an individual. Blame the suicide bomber! Or whatever is left of him.
And while the left-wing wish list is the only go-to for the public in the age of “liberal” media hegemony, an honest search for the remedies of our societal problems is neglected. The signs of cultural decay are written on the wall. Crime as well as professional, financial and reputational insecurities cause high levels of stress which in turn breaks down families and leaves frustrated singles unable to find their matches. The gender confusion (not to be confused with actual queer people) has gotten so badly out of control that even gay (and mostly left-wing) journalist Glenn Greenwald scratches his head. And amidst the exhaustion conservatives wonder whether ‘everybody for himself’ still holds all the answers.
To illuminate the subject, I discuss the case of a sociopathic murderer who was elected member of parliament in Berlin. His victim died either of his brutal beating or his strangulation. The murderer Gerwald Claus-Brunner electrocuted himself to death five days after the murder.
In this video I discuss narcissism, which, I believe, is the underlying problem of the Social Justice Warrior phenomenon. There are economic and social reasons that culminate in the #craze. So I walk you through the hilariously exemplary activist Kübra Gümüsay and the final section of her equally exemplary speech at the #SJW convention Republica.
It is technically an open series. So I am happy to attend to Kübra again if she comes back with choice material. For now I set my eye on another SJW issue, anyway, because I have just stumbled over the extent of institutionalisation of feminism. I think, I must organise that material a bit. The women “rights” issue is more dangerous and also more imminent than I thought in the past. I had no idea. So I’ll turn my eye on that.
In the sixth episode I explore the weakling side of SJW narcissism. As Kübra Gümüsay presents us with the horror of G-rated nipple free quasi-“nudes” on Twitter, I wonder whether helicopter moms or child neglect in über-large famiiies yield the same result: people who skipped negative feedback for too long. This comes with an overall decline of our culture which drives the return of a long-forgotten, dangerous concept: the Cardinal sins.
In the first segment we talk about the role of arts in the public discourse. The new restrictions of a chaotic class that used to challenge order and has come to perceive itself as the hectoring gatekeepers of the debate. Did postmodernism go from being inspirational to “truth is whatever the authority of the day likes to hear?” What roles do schools play and what roles should they play?
Since Gamergate it became clearer that the younger generations react against anti-masculine venom. At the same time the left doubled down. We discuss how the well-monetized pseudo-religion of the good intention industry has run out of purposes and is lashing out now, how they engage in witchhunts against symbols and try to dominate the interpretations of symbols and our reality.
The helicopter-parent millennial generation struggles with narcissism and self-hatred. One outlet can be racism towards ones own group, which can take the form of white guilt or BDS. The other outlet is seeking confirmation in ones group and replacing all reasoning (logos) with the dos and don’ts of the peers (ethos). The newfangled religion seeks to replace Christianity, but cannot hold the candle up to it. Is the belief of a society the result of the game of politics, anyway? Is self-hypnosis, the consent to get deluded, the reason why some people really believe it?
