Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this meditation on Star Trek, mass immigration, utopias, and related topics.
The Star Trek Connection
“Religion is the opiate of the people” said a famous Communist, and then proceeded to create a new political religion.
Religions are always messy. They are messy because the elites get hold of them and pervert them into their own personal fiefdoms, and those fiefdoms are then twisted to become ambitions of their leaders. The relevant ‘god’ is pushed into a backroom and only occasionally dusted off and allowed to come to the party, but only at the convenience of said elite.
Then there are the wacky video religions, of which the Cult of the Trekkie is one of the bigger ones.
But has anybody else noticed that there is an agenda here? Is our home world to become that of the fantasy TV series, portrayed as a utopian community where there is no money, no borders, and everybody has everything they could ever want, subject to the replicator functioning correctly?
I don’t know which came first, the warp drive or the patronising influence of the Vulcans (the intellectual elite), but both appear as pivotal in a ‘godless’ community (do Klingons see it as Federation ‘rootbeer’ supremacy?). And above all, are Kirk and his band of politically correct brothers (at the time) guiding us wisely through the mayhem of the present to a bright and glorious future, complete with the ‘moderate Klingon’ who sets an example of tolerance for us all?
Of course. the reality is that there are no warp drives and no Vulcans (and no ‘moderate’ Klingons) except as a bunch of pixels and neurons in the minds of our wonderous elites and their flocks, and there will be no magic wands that can be waved to clear up the mess that such trekkie socialism will once more create in our own backyards.
The dominance of the elitist obsession with the otherwise abstract ideas of ‘racism’ and ‘equality’ produce a wonderful inversion where non-trekkies — those race groups which are not part of the Federation — are always portrayed as imperfect, even if perhaps redeemable, but always as inferior and backwards. To be nationalist is to automatically be fascist, and also to be irreconcilably stupid.
The Federation culture is so superior that no other idea can be tolerated, and all must be encouraged (forced) to come into the fold.
So we have a politics of provocation where, as in a game of tennis, you are looking to make your opponent make mistakes. In the corrosive politics of the now, it is something which enables you to point the finger and shout “Nazi” or some such other inappropriate but demeaning slander, even if that insult itself is so misused as to be virtually meaningless.
We are watching this happen right now. Hamas, a known terrorist organisation and oppressor of ‘Palestinians’ is once more playing the blame game, and once more the gullible (and the malicious elite) appear to be falling for it. Thus Hamas is a terrorist organisation only when they are hitting non-Israeli targets, but when they are lashing out at Jooz, they suddenly become freedom fighters. This is the real ‘racism’. And this, from a supposedly multicultural country where the ardent multiculturalists of the UK Labour party just cannot keep their virulent anti-Semitism (the real racism here) under wraps. And as for the UN, well, what else can we expect but to have to pay continuously and heavily for the privilege of having our posteriors battered by the ‘Bandung generation’.
The BBC article here is a wonderful mix of truncated news and veiled anti-Semitic propaganda, where the actions of a terrorist organisation are justified simply because their opponents are Jooz . However, to a person living within two miles of said fence and the riots, the flavour of BBC reporting is very bitter, and if the terrorists break out, then their object is to kill the Jewish civilian population, no mercy. Note the substitution of the word God for Allah in the paragraph after the second picture — after all “we all worship the same god”.
If Labour want to control anti-Semitism in their party, they need to start with the BBC, who still have not yet published the Balen Report (an investigation into anti-joo and anti-Israel bias in the BBC), and who have spent a lot of licence fee payers’ money covering it up.
To a humanist, one god really is much the same as any other, but to compare say, Allah, with The Buddha requires a high degree of (political) wishful thinking.
Whilst it is true that Allah is a god, when a supposedly British media institution uses ‘God’ in the context of Islam, it is trying to send a message.
What is really happening here is provocation. Hamas want the Israeli Defence Force to shoot indiscriminately so that they can parade the supposed iniquity before the world media, who, like the duplicitous BBC, will always find that the Israelis have responded ‘disproportionately’.
So just how do you respond to a terror organisation whose charter demands the genocide of all Jews? Well, the last one was subjected to an unconditional surrender, at great cost in lives and materiel.
But now it is the turn of the USA to defend against the same type of provocation. Just what is the motivation behind the march on the southern border? Is it to present President Trump with a lose-lose situation? Is it to get the President to commit an impeachable offense? If it is, then, is this not treason?
First we must establish by what right supposedly ‘civilian’ marchers have to invade a sovereign state en masse. And, having established that they have no rights to do so under law, one must then ask the question why are they doing it? It is here that things get murky, because it is here that we find that we are having our noses tweaked.
The socialist religion irrationally believes that all are all equal, a wacky Vulcan type of superior belief which also dictates that all must share what we have (but only if we are not socialists or members of socialist-approved victim groups). Which means that all are entitled a share in the fruits of any individual’s labour. The inevitable conclusion then is: Why bother to grow that fruit in the first place? Let’s just pick somebody else’s fruit!
Personally, I do not want to be forced to give away my hard-earned wages to those who would steal them from me anyway. It is all theft, and however you want to look at it, redistribution of wealth is legalized, government-enforced robbery. I do not mind bona fide asylum seekers, but economic migrants need to prove that they are capable of supporting themselves in the very near future before their visa applications are even considered.
I emigrated from the UK because for Jews in Europe the writing is on the wall, and those who survived the last genocide of the Jews were the ones that got out of the war zones early. Israel is prepared to defend her borders; the UK is not. But what of the USA?
Troops have been deployed to defend the southern border, but will they be allowed to shoot? And will the President survive either way? He is damned if he gives the order and he is damned if he does not.
The reality is that he, the POTUS, needs to start exposing and locking up those who are committing treason and other crimes, beginning with the governors and politicos who have defied him (and by default, the American people). Criminals are criminals, no matter their rank and status. It is high time that politicians who break the law are put in front of a jury in order to demonstrate their innocence or otherwise. But maybe there are just too many flying pigs in the swamp for that to happen.
The ‘Judeo’ part of Judeo-Christianity comprises the idea of one law for all, great or small, and a set of ten basic tenets that establish a synergy with whoever or whatever created this world. Those countries that followed these memes prospered beyond the dreams of mankind, but many did not, and became cesspools of violence and corruption.
As we in the West now abandon those same Old Testament memes, we watch the European world flush itself back down the long drop into the sewer of warlord culture, with men eagerly awaiting the arrival of their new Mohammed to steer us to loot, rapine and salacious glory.
We have been taught to want it all now. We have been taught that we deserve it all now, and if we are not careful, we will take it all now and civilization will slit its own communal throat and bleed out in a gutter of its own making.
The Star Trek Utopia required that over 80% of the world’s population be culled, so that the Vulcans could guide its rebuilding along their own socialist model. But socialist models are always full of good intentions, and the tearing-down bit is the easy part; somehow the rebuilding never quite works….
Children, families and marriage have no relevance in the Star Trek world. Neither do grandparents and other close family ties. Kaiku is a burden; she only drags her heroic husband down. Far better the unattached life, the casual relationships and the holodeck.
I step back and I ask myself, could the world be remade in the Star Trek image? And I shudder at the thought. At best Star Trek is a modern fairy tale. To try and make it happen is pure phantasy, and who is going to preside over the required genocide?
History shows us that there are always willing volunteers, those for whom the ends justify the means. Hold up to people the vision of a better world and they will gladly abandon the boring but civilized behaviour of the now, for the exciting barbarism of terror and fanaticism.
Something special happened to the world in the last two centuries. A polite, cultured society grew up to the point where, on the whole, people could enjoy the fruits of their labours, but there is a huge gap between where we are now and the Star-Trekian utopia that has been presented to us as such a desirable and brave new world. It is this gap which presents the real problem, for there is no clear pathway from here to there, just a genocide or two and a set of unpredictable results and unintended consequences.
Do Vulcans exist? Can they guide us to liberty, justice and brotherhood, or are they just a well-paid band of Soros puppets?
I for one am quite content with what we had, what we had before the social justice warriors started telling us that our world was imperfect and that we had to start inviting parasites to join us in our well-being. But you know, a body can only support so many parasites before it succumbs.
Their ‘Critical Theory’ may work to bring down the status quo, but it does not build; it only destroys. It is not a constructive form of criticism which has value. It is purely destructive, and is designed to make people feel guilt and shame and discontent.
Its aim is to create the conditions necessary for those aforementioned genocide(s) to happen — to spur you and me to murderous anger or to the violence of acute frustration. To force us to condone (by inaction) the slaughter of opponents.
So what is really is our nemesis? Is it a Klingon invasion? Can we be re-assured that Kirk, our fantasy godmother, will always show up in the nick of time? Saving us the trouble of having to do anything for ourselves. Will the enterprise pumpkin bring us home safe and sound with Prince Charming in tow?
Kahless, Mohammed — Is there any real difference?
Live short and in slavery…
