Weekend Reading: Basic Russian for crash test dummies

From Brussels Journal comes this essay, part 12 of a series entitled From Meccania to Atlantis, on the sordid state of Western civilization, and the rise of Leviathan. An excerpt:
... In former chapters of “Meccania – Atlantis” I described Podism (1) as a sort of mental chip programmed for white people’s (2) collective guilt and self-loathing, irrational and false assumptions about the superior virtue and moral deservedness of nonwhites, nondiscrimination as the highest value, ahistorical and utopian delusions, and the conviction that the road to universal peace and brotherhood hinges on the unilateral self-disablement of the West’s collective survival mechanism and the disablement of autochthon Westerners’ individual (3) survival mechanisms as well.

Another way of putting it is that after decades of promoting yin (i.e. the cosmic female element) and suppressing yang (i.e. the cosmic male element), the West now suffers from yin toxemia. As per Chinese Taoist precepts, this produces an overabundance of the soft, wet, squishy, sweet, flabby, irrational, diffuse energy that characterizes yin, and a shortage of the hard, dry, salty, muscular, rational and compacting male (i.e. yang) energy that could rectify this imbalance.

The yin-soaked West rests on a foundation of feelings. It feels for the plight of the female trapped in a male body, the Somali who has never seen indoor plumbing, and the abandoned son of a Kenyan exchange student who made good. That all such feelings translate into actions that dismantle the West financially, demographically and culturally no longer registers, for reason no longer registers, nor does survival. This is the age of I feel, therefore I am. The essence of yin.

The West is no longer able to deal with the abundant yang characteristics of the nonwhite, male-dominated ethnic groups – acting as “minorities” on the inside, and rogue and semi-rogue nations on the outside. In particular, gelded Snatchland (4) is unable to perceive, let alone to protect itself, from the main characteristic of the yang groups: Nashism.

Nashism is a neologism derived from the Russian word for "ours." Nashi is how the Russian refers to the Russian side in a war, dispute, or soccer match, the other side being vashi, "yours." It is a command of the heart, the culture, almost the language itself, that a Russian identify with and support nashi, irrespective of right or wrong, gain or loss, truth or falsehood.

If this is so for the Russian, it's squared for the Chinese, for whom the white person is still laowai, “old outsider,” or gweizi, “foreign devil.” It's squared as well for the second and third generation Mexican-American, for whom Mexico is the land of the heart, and the US is a depot where idiot gringos hand out massive social entitlement gift packages to foreign invaders with user instructions in the invaders’ own language.

It's squared also for the 10th generation African American, who – a rare and despised 'Oreo' like Thomas Sowell or Ward Connerly excepted – all too-often acquits black murderers if he is on jury duty; takes up reflexively the cause of black hoodlums (the "Jena Six," "Free Mumia" etc); votes for black candidates irrespectively of their qualifications; sees white "racism" where there is only his own racism; and sees only other blacks as "brothers."

Muslim Nashism is the ultimate: it's dar-al-Islam, "the abode of peace," for Muslims, and dar-al-Harb, "the abode of war," for the kuffar – that's you and me, the infidels. A practicing Muslim, be he 4th generation Swiss, cannot be true to his faith unless he treat the Islamic ummah as nashi, in precedence to his civic nation, vashi. Incidentally, Switzerland’s motto being Einer für alle, alle für einen (One for All, All for One), only a ruling elite of Body Snatcher cretins could have thought up the idea of importing 350,000 Muslims (5), 4.5% of the population, to that country.

Postmodern identity politics have made of gender another powerful tribal force, with the feminist “sisterhood” or groups formed according to GLBT sexual practices supplanting traditional civic allegiance. In contrast, Western ethos instills a civic commitment to one's nation, not a tribal commitment to one’s folk or genital affinity group. This disparity, catalyzed by the Pod creed, causes Snatcher State to hobble its majority autochthon people in order to confer advantages on disaffected centrifugal groups who show no reciprocal munificence.

Raymond Kraft, [hat tip, Fjordman] has written that the Islamic movement has turned the civility of the Western peoples into a weapon against them. It has weaponized niceness, compassion and the fundamental decency of Western Civilization. “We have become too civilized to defeat our enemies, perhaps too civilized to survive.” True, but it applies to much more than just Muslim colonization.

The questions this begs is, first, how could such insanity have taken hold in a civilization based on reason, and second, how could a “mental virus” alone produce this level of collective psychopathology, unmatched in the recorded history of mankind. The answers require that we move on to the next Russian expression, kto kogo.

Kto kogo, which means the same in several Slavic languages is “who whom.” Like in “who is ruling, dominating, doing in, controlling whom.” This was Lenin’s formula for instant clarity in politics.

The good intentions of the squishy West stem from biblical morality so mainstream that a sermon in a random Western church or synagogue sounds like induction into the Body Snatcher creed. There is the shame and sorrow for Nazism and Fascism, Colonialism and Slavery, centuries of poisonous anti-Semitism, copious internecine bloodshed in the name of the loving Jesus or xenophobic nationalism, exploitation of peasants, workers and women.

Contrition and restoration one can understand. But suicide?

After all, any calamity, any atrocity committed in the history of Western civilization was exceeded in non-Western civilizations – and they don’t have the West’s redeeming features on the other side of the ledger either. Both Stalin and Mao murdered more people than Hitler did. The Khmer Rouge murdered 26% of Cambodia’s population in four years (6). In the 1200 years of Arab slave trading, millions more Africans were enslaved by Arabs and treated with far greater cruelty than were ever by white men. As Thomas Sowell, a descendant of slaves himself, has pointed out (7), more Europeans were enslaved and taken to North Africa by Barbary Coast pirates alone than there were African slaves taken to America.

In Japan, a samurai could cut a peasant in half under the pretext of an insult, but really just to test his sword. Besides the hard feudalism, racism and ethnocentrism of the East Asian peoples, there is the cruel gynophobia of the Muslims, the appalling savagery of the Amerindians, and so on. But according to such intellectual luminaries as Susan Sontag -- and I am quoting – it’s the white race that’s the cancer of human history.

That’s where Lenin’s kto kogo comes in. Since the 1920s, hard core Western leftists, under the guidance of the Comintern and the KGB (and KGB’s predecessors, OGPU and NKVD), have fashioned “fascism” and “racism” into a lever with which to upend the West. It’s with the help of this lever that Lenin’s useful idiots were once stamped assembly-line fashion out of Western yin material. Though the original masters are gone, it’s this lever still that 80 years later activates the hydraulic presses from which issue next generations of Pods. ...
