The frequency of events is an important indicator of their true proportion. If there were so many Nazis around why are they so few and why was their flagship website on GoDaddy? If they are on the rise, then why are "white supremacist" statues so old instead of so recent? On the other hand, if Islamic extremism were so rare, why are attacks rising instead of falling? The relative weakness of the Nazis versus Radical Islamism can explain the emphasis on "right wing extremists". Since it's relatively easy to go after Nazis or dead Confederates compared to radical Islamists backed by oil money and guns, it is human nature to go after the low-risk bad guys.

Today the Nazis can only boast of GoDaddy websites and tiki torches. It's the Islamists that have the Scuds, poison gas, AK-47s and suicide bombs. Modern Nazism is to all intents and purposes, a dead movement. Their only real value today is to serve as a minor or spurious target whose goal is to draw attention away from a real threat. If you want to keep the public from locking in on the actual target, give them another.

Violence works like a radar reflector that returns a big fat target the media can't help but lock on to. Consequently a few hundred neo-Nazis temporarily become the center of the media world while everyone was locked on the offending statues -- until something burned through. Today ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack on a pedestrian mall in Barcelona that left 13 dead and a hundred injured. Suddenly the War on Statues was thrown off the front pages by the War on Terror. The Lone Wolf Narrative can be sold to the public only while attacks fall below a certain frequency. Once the attacks happen too frequently, the script fails and the public begins to wonder if the Lone Wolves aren't really a pack. Even the immense media resources at the disposal of progressives can be overcome by a strong signal from events.

20170816 21:29 badanov From Wretchard, from someone called Subotai Bahadur:
Francis Cardinal George of Chicago. A quote of his from 2010 seems on point today.

>>>>"I expect to die in bed," Francis Eugene Cardinal George famously remarked. "My successor will die in prison, and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history."<<<<

That is not a pessimistic statement. It is essentially an optimistic one. There will be a struggle, a struggle that many will not survive. But there is hope of a victory.
Such is our world. It needs to be faced clearly. Duty is as heavy as a mountain. Death is as light as a feather.

The warriors prayer:

Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be If only I had my gun; and Lord if today is truly the day that You call me home, let me die in a pile of brass

20170816 16:36 badanov From The People's Cube:

There is an old Soviet joke about better sex under communism.

"When was your life happier, under Khrushchev or under Brezhnev?"
"Under Khrushchev, of course."
"Can you elaborate?"
"The broads were younger."

Behind hue and cry over the alt-right versus ctrl-left clashes lurks the big-stakes game for control of the State. Past State tyrannies operated through control via censorship, surveillance, the criminal justice system and propaganda. After Nazism and Bolshevism, Western societies built organs for their States to protect themselves from the tyrannies' return. "We have drawn a different lesson from history", was how some European commentators reacted to the violence in Charlottesville. That lesson can be summarized thus: "strict laws against hate speech are at the heart of Europe's reckoning with the past." They'll not give up the State - just make sure that it never falls into the 'wrong hands'. What happens in riots is unimportant except as it affects control of the State.

For Progressives, survival means retaining ascendance over the American State. For the Rebel Red or Populist side, the goal is merely to keep the American State from being ascendant over them. If Progressives don't win, they lose. Consider Google's firing of James Damore for questioning the company's diversity policies. It wasn't about opinion, it was about control. Everyone can have an opinion but only one side can be in control.

But sooner or later the costs of witch hunting will be too high. A Progressive movement that has routinely regarded the pacification of Vietnam, Iraq, or Cuba as uneconomical must realize the suppression of half of America is infeasible. The raised tone and heightened warnings of the cultural elite is reminiscent of lion-tamers shouting to keep the beasts under control. For Progressives, the show means controlling the Rebel lions. For the Rebels, if they don't lose they win. All they have to do to end the performance is walk out of the ring. They don't even have to bite the tamers.

20170814 21:21 Thing From Snowy Mountain Seen at Instapundit:
FLOWERS IN THEIR HAIR: REMEMBER THE SUMMER OF LOVE? NO? Lucky you, Andrew Ferguson writes on location at Haight-Ashbury:
When the tour was over I walked back downtown to the library to take a last look at the exhibits there. I saw something I’d missed in my first walk through. There was another thing absent from all the celebrations: They were neglecting the people who lived in the Haight before the Summer of Love, before the freaks arrived and the world changed. But here they were, in the basement of the library. At the end of the exhibit there’s a single display case, labeled “The Rest of Us,” as a reminder that not every San Franciscan participated in the Summer of Love.

They are photos from the mid-sixties. One shows a beauty shop, beehived women lined up for their weekly rinse; another is a family picture of a wedding party, fading with that washed-out color you find in sixties Polaroids. In another a line of middle-school cheerleaders smiles brightly, and there are a few men in suits and ties. They all look so odd — odder to the eye than the surrounding pictures of dancing hippies — and not simply because they’re antiques a half-century old. They look odd because, with the smiles and the attitude of self-assurance and contentment, they look clueless. We know something they don’t know. They don’t know what’s about to hit them.
When Alfred Hitchcock was shooting Vertigo on location in San Francisco in the fall of 1957, he thought he was making a sexually-charged psychological thriller. What he actually produced was a time capsule of city about to be utterly transformed by forces just as powerful and destructive in their own way as the 1906 earthquake – and whose effects have been infinitely more long-lasting.

The riots in Charlottesville reflect the breakdown of the Narrative, which has been the subject of several past posts. What happened on the street has been a long time coming. The bonds of trust are breaking down. Reputation and authority are no longer recognized outside of a membership group. The personal, already political, finally became commercial. Some companies, like Air BnB, have flatly refused to serve those whose views they disapprove of. Political views are becoming conditions of employment at Google. Some national political leaders like Bernie Sanders are proposing explicit "litmus tests" to sort people according to virtue.

The riots and death in Charlottesville are the physical manifestation of the idea of separateness. If the thought is the father of the deed, the children of hate, the offspring of "by any means necessary" and the scions of superiority, so long in gestation, are finally being born. Donald Trump's plea for calm and his exhortation to remember "we are all Americans first" may find scant resonance among those for whom hyphens come first. The long sought-after goal of diversity has been attained and it is not what many imagined. Hopefully it isn't too late for reconciliation but there is every chance that resentment will intensify.

Human history suggests that conflict, like entropy, grows faster than understanding. It is harder to unscramble an egg than to scramble it. The process of division may grow until the resentments which drive the hyphens apart are finally overcome by the attractions of cooperation and commerce. Until then division will spread and spread. The identity politics on display in Charlottesville has long been dissolving bonds in Europe, the Middle East -- even on the borders of China and Russia. The acid came to America relatively late, but it is at work everywhere. The question may no longer be "how can we return to the old Global system" so much as can we survive in a world new-built on hyphens.

20170813 22:40 3dc But the statues were not removed in a smart way. What's a smart way? Cleaning and repair that ends up taking forever.
If it's not done that way it's a provocation.
20170813 01:47 badanov The problem in acting like the conqueror is that if you have paid no cost to be a conquerors, your acts are little more than a dangerous conceit.
20170813 01:02 badanov Removing statues is what conquerors do. ISIS did it. In every revolution, the conquerors did it to signal the end. They not only want to rid us of antiquities, but also they want to demonstrate in concrete form that they are the conquerors and those who protest are the vanquished. And so far elected officials have sided with the conquerors.
