Today, Macron took a swipe at Heritage America,
As Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and dozens of other heads of state and government listened in silence, French President Emmanuel Macron used the occasion, as its host, to sound a powerful and sobering warning about the fragility of peace and the dangers of nationalism and of nations that put themselves first, above the collective good.
“The old demons are rising again, ready to complete their task of chaos and of death,” Macron said.
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,” he said. “In saying ‘Our interests first, whatever happens to the others,’ you erase the most precious thing a nation can have, that which makes it live, that which causes it to be great and that which is most important: Its moral values.”
When you e-race a nation, you erase its moral values. Patriotism and nationalism are mutually beneficially linked because both protect and lionize the people who are the source of the cherished moral values.
Maricon, like all post-nation globalists who read the Camp of the Saints as an instruction manual, inverts reality for a feelgood lie. He believes race as reflected through national borders and immigration controls is irrelevant to morality, which exists in the ether separate and distinct from the minds of different human groups. The truth is that the race comes first, the moral values follow. I wonder if Maricon seriously believes France’s moral values would survive the replacement of the native French with Pakistanis, Eritreans, Nigerians, Moroccans? If he does, then he is worse than a fool. He is an annihilationist.
From commenter AM,
Men used to have a moral education (if they were educated); they understood that virtue – “values,” in castrated newspeak – is not so much a matter of opposing one good value to another “bad” value, as it is a promontory rising above two crevasses of excess and deficit on either side… i.e., the “golden mean.” It’s not that anger is a “bad” value and meekness is a “good” value; it’s that you should be as angry and as meek as a given situation requires.
There’s also obviously an order and harmony amongst the virtues, just as amongst what few, legitimate rights there are, such that they are never in conflict – indeed, the philosophers have always said that one doesn’t really possess any single virtue unless he possesses them all; they are a participation in true being – in God, and are therefore as wholly One as He must be. Yes, even the pre-Christian, pagan sages knew that.
Organizing your paper clips and preventing your kids from overeating are both “values.” I’m judgmental enough to say they are both good values. But a mother who starved her kids because she refused to compromise her “moral values” as regards paperclip-propriety would rightly be publicly executed. It shouldn’t require any particular moral genius to understand that the balancing act between the common and particular good on the global stage is just as naturally resolvable as on the domestic: most people manage to cooperate with their neighbors and towns without feeling like they have to invite all the local hobos to move into their own kids’ bedrooms. Piety requires us to love our kith and kin, our country, before we love others; justice requires us to tender the offices of piety to our kin and country first, and to help others only from our excess, and never in a way that disproportionately, adversely affects our kin and country.
Time was nobody could have sat still to hear a grown man like Macron speak such nonsense; somebody would be compelled to smack him and say “How the hell did you live past puberty with so much shit impacted in your brains!?” The fact that our elites applaud piously and bask comfily in his wisdom, is proof that God is preparing for destruction. Quos vult perdere…
Repent! One assumes that such a call must be tongue in cheek, but I’m afraid it’s not, fellas. By all means, continue to act prudently for change in the world, because that is a moral duty. But don’t delude yourselves into thinking that God will stay His hand without real repentance. For yourselves and others: repent, repent, repent.
“Piety requires us to love our kith and kin, our country, before we love others; justice requires us to tender the offices of piety to our kin and country first, and to help others only from our excess…”
Good times create weak men.
Is this what it is, after all? Our collective insanity a product of excessive prosperity? We can’t abide the easy life without an urge to throw it away for the purpose of a difficult life?
If this is the kernel of the White Western soul, then nothing we do here will make a difference. Decline and collapse has to happen, just as rebirth has to happen.
