Robert Hanson observes we are less inclined to kill, rape and plunder than in past centuries, and proposes some explanations for this: (more…)

When someone says “There are too many Jews,” we suspect that he wants to kill Jews. Similarly, it turns out that at the root of Hitler’s propensity to kill people was his belief that there are too many people.
And if you’re tempted to say that Hitler proposed a barbaric solution for a real problem, take a look at how Germany actually did feed its population since 1945: increasing agricultural productivity and increasing exports. The two methods that Hitler dismissed out of hand transformed Germany into one of the richest nations in history.
Religions that command human sacrifice are good at providing power to their priesthood. Thus we see the first greenie famine being welcomed with delight by the true believers, much as they previously welcomed the return of malaria.
Environmentalists confidently state with immense confidence all sorts of “facts”, most of which are impossible to meaningfully test, some of which can be easily tested, and which test false – which test does not impair the confidence of the environmentalists in the slightest, just as the obviouse falsehood of the Christian doctrine of transubstantiation does not trouble those Christians who believe in it in the slightest.
Two obvious and extreme example are:
- the much repeated “fact” that we are in the middle of a vast mass extinction, that ten thousand species go extinct every year. Ask any greenie to name a species that has recently gone extinct. He will not be able to answer, and will be entirely untroubled by his inability to answer.
- the much repeated “fact” that the ice is melting, even though satellites show that the area of the world under ice has not changed significantly since satellites have been observing.
When environmentalist “scientists” report the disappearance of ice, they are not in fact reporting the disappearance of physical corporeal ice and snow, the stuff that causes your car to slide, and has to be shovelled off the path, the stuff that is apt to sink ships at sea. What they are really reporting is the disappearance of magic ice, the spirit of the ice, Gaia’s infusion of spirituality into a frozen wilderness that they contemplate from the comfort of Starbucks. Hence their total indifference to physical evidence. The holy ice, which is melted merely by man’s unholy gaze is disappearing, even though the merely physical ice continues to endanger shipping in pretty much the same places as it has for the last century or so.
Similarly when environmentalist “scientists” report that the polar bear is endangered, they are entirely indifferent to actual numbers of polar bears. Far from being endangered, polar bears, like deer, a pest and a hazard. Rather, because they raid garbage dumps, because they have become a pest and a hazard, the holy spirit of wild nature of which the holy bear is a manifestation, is in danger of going extinct.
Yair Lapid self pityingly whines “why do they hate us?”, “us” being in this case the Jews, though it could equally well be any group that is economically successful and reluctant to murder innocents.
What a maroon! It is same reason as they hate everyone, only more so. Just look at everyone else who gets hated then murdered.
The most recent event was in Kenya, where a party won the election on a platform that sounds like a euphemism for “Kill the Kikuyu”. (Fortunately the government burned the ballots.)
Why do they hate the Kikuyu? Well the number one item on the list that Kikuyu tend to occupy jobs that require ability, enterprise, ambition, foresight and patience. Another big complaint is that when Kikuyu farm land, a small amount of farmland supports a surprisingly large number of Kikuyu at a surprisingly high standard of living – at least it surprises the people who are so much enraged. They conclude that the Kikuyu must have benefited unfairly from some kind of evil plot.
Check back to the most recent genocide: Hutus massacring Tutsis: What is in the complaint list: More of the same!
And let us look at which nations and individuals are still backing the Hutus. Who wants war crimes charges against the Tutsis for defending themselves against genocide: Same people who want war crimes charges against the Jews for defending themselves.
Recall Hitler’s indictment of the Jews:
Von 100 Ärzten 52 Juden, und von 100 Geschäftsleuten 60 Juden. Das Durchschnittsvermögen des einzelnen Deutschen betrug 810 Mark. Das Durchschnittsvermögen des einzelnen Juden betrug 10.000 Mark.
Of 100 doctors 52 were Jews and of 100 businessmen were 60 Jews. The average assets of individuals amounted to 810 German marks. The average assets of individual Jews was 10,000 marks.
Let us go back to a recent mass murder that was bigger than the holocaust of the Jews: The liquidation of the kulaks. What was the indictment against the kulaks? And who endorsed that indictment: Same people who now indict Israel. The campuses and the intellectuals were jumping for joy when the liquidation of the kulaks was under way. During the liquidation of the kulaks the intellectual who had graduated with a thesis titled “the hermeneutic negritude of linguistic lesbianism” thought to himself “How dare those damned
Jews kulaks become so well paid as doctors and lawyers when the oppressive capitalistic American imperialist world order refuses to reward me for my brilliant studies of the hermeneutics of language oppressing black lesbians.
So cut the damned whining. You sound just like the people who are trying to murder you.
When you go for a run, there are dogs that will see a running man, and seeing running, will see prey, and attack. You have to thump them viciously, and they soon learn to keep their distance. If they don’t, you were not vicious enough. Similarly, when people see wealth, they see high status, and when they see high status without brutality and murder, they think they see weakness, and so they attack.
And when they hear whining, they hear weakness, and so they attack.
Stop whining. Kill someone.
To the man who wrote the thesis about the hermeneutic negritude of linguistic lesbianism, wealth without strength is a crime, whining shows weakness, and to him, only murder shows strength. To stop him hating, you have to kill people in a fashion that he is likely to believe is murder. He is never going to comprehend economics and the creation of wealth any more than the dog is going to understand running for exercise.
Stop whining, start killing.
