Identity politics: On the edge of self-destructing chaos?

Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe
Niall Ferguson
Penguin, 2021

What could be less surprising than a mainstream academic, a pop historian at that, who misunderstands the social revolution? Niall Ferguson’s pandemic-inspired book Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe looks at a range of disasters past, present, and possibly future while downplaying the upheaval all around us. But he unwittingly reinforces an interesting perspective on the fragility of the multi-faceted coalition intent on destroying the West.

Before addressing that, however, it’s worth looking at the insights Ferguson offers for the apocalyptically preoccupied. Whether catastrophes are biological, political, social, economic, geological, environmental, or even inter-stellar, he maintains, “at some level all disasters are man-made.” Regardless of cause, humanity has a way of aggravating circumstances.

He writes about the Spanish flu that started in 1918, killing 40 to 50 million, more than World War I but less than the catastrophe of communism. After typhus killed up to three million in the Russian Civil War, the victors unleashed two man-made famines on Ukraine, from 1921–1923, and 1932–1933. The latter spilled into Russia and especially Kazakhstan, killing about five million people altogether. “Stalin’s conception of class war implied not just terror but mass murder,” Ferguson states.

The agricultural disaster imposed by China’s Great Leap Forward from 1959 to 1961 killed between 30 and 60 million. Ethiopian communists caused their 1984–1985 famine, an atrocity overlooked by pop fans swooning over the Live Aid music fest.

Ferguson surveys epidemics from fifth-century BC Athens, through the bubonic plague in the early modern period, to the recent outbreaks of Asian flu, AIDS/HIV, SARS, MERS, and Ebola, up to the current pandemic. China, he says, responded to Covid-19 as it did to SARS. The difference this time: they did it with the “acquiescence” of the World Health Organization, with the WHO’s China-backed Ethiopian director-general “supine, if not sycophantic.”

About seven million people left Wuhan in January 2020. When China finally restricted travel, the country imposed tighter controls on movement between Wuhan and the rest of China than between Wuhan and the rest of the world. Let that sink in.

This planet’s history of disasters includes “an infinity of non-events” too. Only luck has (so far) prevented a meteor strike of existential proportions. Other possible threats might include an alien invasion (although the distances are incomprehensibly vast), solar activity, planet-swallowing black holes, or an exponential expansion of the universe.

Humanity’s contribution to its demise might come from nuclear war, terrorism or accidents, biological weapons, cyber warfare, genetic engineering, or nanotechnology—any of which could cause “some self-perpetuating and unstoppable process that drowns us in gloop.” Artificial intelligence can be used to enhance totalitarianism or justify its creation. Or AI could turn against us.

Ferguson notes AI theorist Eliezer Yudkowsky’s warning: Every 18 months, the minimum IQ necessary to destroy the world drops by one point. (Ferguson doesn’t provide the minimum starting point. Yudkowsky said that in 2008, nearly nine points ago.)

Ferguson completed this book before the vaccine controversies. Yet in discussing “science and the revival of magic,” he writes of “that vague deference to ‘the science,’ which proves, on close inspection, to be a new form of superstition.”

As for the obsessions of Greta Thunberg, “the child saint of the twenty-first-century millennialist movement,” Ferguson says an eruption of Wyoming’s Yellowstone supervolcano “would render discussion of man-made climate change superfluous in the brief period before mass extinction ensued.”

Comparing the near-catastrophe of Cold War I with the potential catastrophe of Cold War II, he mentions that America’s allies the first time around prefer to remain non-aligned in the second. He points out that Western pop culture helped undermine Soviet power in CW I, but doesn’t acknowledge that it’s now undermining the West. Nor does he mention that, while the Soviets had Cold War spies, agents, and sympathizers working abroad, as China does now, Beijing also has fifth columns across the West in CCP-loyal immigrant spies and potential spies who are welcomed by universities, corporations, and even as government employees throughout the West.

As at least some of Ferguson’s previous 15 books indicate, he finds fascination in networks—social, political, economic, cultural, communications, infrastructure, and so on. Each can be described as a complex system with many components held together only through a delicate equilibrium. The networks also intertwine into an even more complex entity.

As Ferguson explains, “Some such systems operate somewhere between order and disorder—‘on the edge of chaos,’ in the phrase of the computer scientist Christopher Langton.”

Bernice Cohen’s 1997 book The Edge of Chaos: Financial Booms, Bubbles, Crashes and Chaos applies that perspective to a highly technical but often fascinating analysis of economic disasters dating back to the 1630s Dutch Tulip Mania. Ferguson points out how American subprime mortgages shattered the delicate equilibrium of global finance to crash the world economy in 2008. Lionel Shriver refers to complex systems in The Mandibles: A Family, 2029–2047, a 2016 novel that wonderfully expresses the human element of a financially induced societal collapse. (Ferguson’s survey of sci-fi and dystopian fiction ignores this American classic, yet he praises Margaret Atwood and the equally lame TV series Survivors.)

A very delicate equilibrium might be seen in the current social revolution. Certainly not a movement of reform, it proposes nothing remotely realistic to replace the society and culture it’s destroying. That will delight the many activists who simply hate normality. But they themselves could be threatened by ensuing chaos.

As a complex system, the social revolution shows what Ferguson would call phase transitions. Some examples include the 2016 election of Donald Trump, the 2017 Charlottesville confrontation, the 2020 George Floyd martyrdom, and probably the 2021 Jan. 6 Capitol Hill protest. Canada took these American events to heart and experienced an additional phase transition this year with sudden allegations that unmarked native graves that had long been publicly known indicate mass burials of atrocity victims. Each of these transitions brought a wildly disproportionate and seemingly irreversible escalation of activism, mainstream propaganda, and sometimes official policy.

In addition to phase transitions, the revolution features a more fluid radicalization that continues through almost every aspect of Western society and culture. For example increasing levels of weirdness become mainstream with public celebrations of homosexuality, then homo marriage, homo adoption, sex change operations, and now gender fluidity and hormone injections for children.

Could all this constitute an overly complex system doomed for self-destruction?

The delicate equilibrium might face infighting. Some early indications came from Blacks who delayed the 2016 Toronto Pride Parade and forced cancellation of its 2021 Boston counterpart, as well as the CCP-loyal Chinese who disrupted the 2019 Montreal Pride Parade. Of course those actions would be considered intolerable hate crimes were they not committed by privileged minorities—and supposed allies with homosexual culture in the war on the West.

It doesn’t take a chaos theorist to imagine where this might lead. How long will BLM get along with antifa, anti-Zionists with the old guard Jewish left, feminists with transgendered “women,” Muslims with feminists, immigrant Hutus with Tutsis, Shiites with Sunnis, Blacks with Hispanics, Blacks with Asians, Blacks with other Blacks, and Whites with all of the above? Meanwhile resource-hungry China watches for opportunity in chaos, as might some regional cartels and maybe an up-and-coming caliphate.

The delicate equilibrium applies to institutions too. Schooling and academia have already collapsed under the Gleichschaltung of identity politics. Law enforcement and justice don’t have far to go. As medical care (staffed through affirmative action) prioritizes patients from a hierarchy of group identities, the spoils system should provoke greater resentment. And if education and employment denigrate merit, who’ll keep complex infrastructure running? “Traditional indigenous knowledge” somehow seems inadequate to provide nuclear power.

Comparisons can be made with some aspects of the French Revolution’s Great Terror, the USSR, the Maoist Cultural Revolution and other eras of madness. Vicious as they were, they lacked the complexity of today’s morass. A question for our time might be whether we endure a period of total chaos before a totalitarian regime imposes order, or whether we slide straight into totalitarianism.

Ferguson misses these possible scenarios, although he does mention some quasi-religious aspects of what he calls the “Great Awokening.” Examples include White cops washing the feet of Black marchers, White BLM supporters displaying wounds (real or fake) from self-flagellation, and Whites kneeling on the pavement praying to Blacks for forgiveness.

But in downplaying the extent of these manifestations, Ferguson seems oblivious to our possible oblivion. The cover photo for one printing of his book shows a golfer intent on his game while a raging wildfire approaches. That image might serve as a metaphor for academics like Ferguson himself.

    Identity politics: A political approach wherein people of a particular gender, religion, race, social background, class or other identifying factors, develop and act on political agendas that are based upon these identities.

    You will not get more politically identifying than that of how members of one race are torturing and beating prisoners of another race in a Washington D.C. jail.

    “The Inexcusable Treatment of January 6 Prisoners Continues …”

    Quincy L. Booth, the African/American director, and Wanda Patten, the African/American warden, of this US prison run it as a gulag in which many January 6 protesters are being held and tortured.

    “Judge orders Jan. 6 defendant with cancer freed after ‘deplorable’ conditions found at DC jail …”

    This prison director and his jail warden refused to cooperate with a federal judge’s order to hand over paperwork in relation to the treatment of these White prisoners. But not only that, a short time ago they also refused to allow elected members of the United States Congress entry to this prison to talk with and inspect the inmates.

    “Jail guard beat Capitol riot suspect …”

    You can take “em” out of Africa, but you’ll never take Africa out of “em” As a commenter on Substack said: “Give em a little bit of power and you very quickly see what vile trash they are. When these Untermenschen thrash get power over you, then you’ll really see what racism is”.

    Albeit many don’t realize it yet, talk of identity politics is now a side show. The race war has started. The next step is to cut these Untermenschen down to size, and dispatch whatever’s left of “em” back to their homeland.

    And don’t anyone tell me that it’s impossible to dispatch this good-for-nothing-thrash back to where they came from. Don’t tell me this when the Left over the last few decades are after transporting untold millions of these types from the 3rd world to the West.

    If they can come one way, they can go the other way.

    Ferguson has been accused of “racism” and “Islamophobia”, and compared – somewhat unfairly – to Lothrop Stoddard. Practically all his elegantly written and carefully documented books are worth reading, despite a few occasional errors of fact (e.g. Spengler’s mentors), especially his works on imperialism, war, migration, financial and revolutionary networks, and the Rothschilds. This latest book seems a bit rushed, and could do with some revision and expansion – in a world where Europe is cheerfully destroying itself demographically and industrially, while China is nonchalantly emitting carbon and Africa fecklessly emitting children.

      Of course.
      The rest are just controlled opposition of various types. I find it interesting in what some are, and some aren’t allowed to talk about. Mark Stein can speak of the stollen election, the climate change hoax, and the great replacement. But 9/11 is verboten(among much else).
      Peter Hitchens can mention the Duma hoax in Syria, the idiocy of lock downs, speak against all the murder, mayhem & inhuman cruelty our nation does abroad, plus he’s allowed to enlighten the public on other crimes the elite have engaged in these last 50 years, the destruction of our education, the ruination of our families, of our once loved police force, now a paramilitary state ‘service'(fire ‘service’ – similarly ruined). The non enforcement of drug laws, the transformation of prisons, now controlled by the inmates with most drugged into servility by the staff, plus much more.
      But he can’t touch even totally obvious hoaxes like the Manchester bomb, 7/7 in London, the Jo Cox farce, the Maddie McCann phy-op, and if you are waiting for him to mention “midazolam”, you’ll be waiting a very long time.

      All the other controlled ‘conservative'(which in future will be a synonym for loser) shills have their own personal sets of what they are, and aren’t allowed to speak on, to gain trust from their readers, and so betray that trust towards their readers with what they hold back.
      These guys sure have thick skins and cold hearts, i’ll give them that, as it is one sick, evil game they play.

      Are these creatures of the elite, there to make normal people believe in the fantasy that they have someone to speak for them in public spaces, a gateway to truth tellers? (How anyone who hasn’t been banned from social media can look themselves in the mirror each morning is beyond me)
      Or are they a hindrance to our cause? Is it a good thing it is the natural instict of a Brit or Yank is to still believe he lives in a free society, and not in a freedomless occupied nation? I can’t decide.

      Has anyone else stated in an argument “this is still a free country!” Without losing all conviction halfway through the phrase, and mumbling the last two words pathetically, as the truth of our situation hits home hard?

        HUGO FUERST says:

        Peter Hitchens: better 5/6 loaf than none at all. He is losing it a bit, with his pessimism and puritanism. He attacks the climate mobs but cites in comparison the criowds who welcomed “Peace in Our Time” – yet he has written a book on the folly of the Allied position in WW2.
        The latest cringes in the “UK” are (1) a fuss about the late Max Mosley (who read physics at Oxford) bequeathing money for university science research &c on the grounds that e.g. he took part in an anti-Jewish rally (which is absolutely untrue) and that his father’s blackshirts over 80 years ago attacked leftwingers and Jews, exactly the opposite of what happened, as confirmed by the current celebrations, and TV fictions, over “Cable Street” (which was an attack on policemen) and “Ridley Road” where his father’s local supporters were attacked by armed criminal gangs, and (2) the groveling apology from a theatre management to the “Jewish Community” because a financier in a recent play is surnamed “Fink”, on the grounds that this perpetuates the “trope” that Jews might have (had) some connection with money, a “stereotype” in fact well illustrated by the billionaire top-financier Larry Fink (q.v. details online), the “Moneylending” entry in the Jewish Virtual Library (online), relevant books by Jerry Muller, Jacques Attali, Norman Cantor and Stephen Aris, plus Gentiles like Niall Ferguson (mentioned elsewhere on TOO).
        Since I regard Archbishop Joke-Woke Wellby as a Weepy Weed anyhow, I avoid discussion of the outcry because he thought the death of tens of millions of all races from “climate change” could be worse than the death of “six million Jews” in a world war.

        Well, jews are a cult and play the long game, passing the game, wealth and control onto their children who pick up where their elders left off, moving the ball further down the field, which is something the atomized goy has no knowledge of. We think jews think/live just like us and the opposite is true. The every man for himself, “rugged individualism”, which is the culture we’re born into, is a actually a sophisticated divide and conquer strategy that jews have been running on us for centuries. We think our atomized, competitive individualism is normal because the game has been running for so long we know nothing else. one of the tricks jews use to control society is by manipulating the minds of the young. Just like they did with the boomers and Gen Xers with the hippy movement, which accelerated the young moving away from the traditional values of their elders (folks who fought WWI, WWII), so to have they moved the young of today even further away from their elders (Boomers/GenX), so, in response about how they face themselves in the mirror, the truth is, they don’t know anything other than the cultural manipulations they see in mass media today (multi-racial, globohomo, etc). Jews have perfected the process of creating splits between generations, severing the young from their nation, people, past history, identity and tradition. This puts the young in terra incognita, completely ungrounded and easier to manipulate, while the jews further consolidate their collective takeover/destruction of the nation.

    lets talk real estate. In China, a news report came out about a poor woman who entered the wrong elevator in her building and got locked in and nobody found her until they found her lifeless body a month later in that service elevator. Try and imagine the horror she must have suffered? And that brings me to high density highrises and a comment I read from a guy over at the doomer blog who lived and worked in Hong Kong and his argument about the building of these very stupid buildings. You may like or love the views but believe me if something catastrophic were to happen like the loss of plumbing or a city wide electrical grid collapse what are you going to do living on the 30th floor? If elevators don’t work how are you going to navigate the stairwells getting groceries home? No heat on the 30th floor means a very cold environment! etc etc?
    lol i mentioned this to my brother and he laughed cursing these monstrosities and saying he would never buy one as he knows as he builds works in them and then proceeded to inform me working in Toronto what happened to him. End of shift he missed the last elevator call and got trapped way up there and the stupid security personal never bothered to check that all workers made it out and got the shock of his life when my brother opened the door 3 hours after having been forced to use the stairs. I said to him 3 hours why? You have to take breaks especially after having worked all day! Further to that the stairwells no light or little?

    If any paid 700,000 for a highrise condo well enjoy the view you have and and live in hope or fear the power stays on and the toilets work lol!

    Politics of Catastrophe? I like or love the words of the truly intelligent and where does one find that:

    I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Proverbs 1:26

    and why such laughter from a being of supreme intelligence?

    Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
    But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
    Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
    For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
    They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
    Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
    For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. Proverbs 1

    Wow … ‘the prosperity of fools shall destroy them lol?

    What was it that the Jewish Banker Paul Warburg said upon witnessing the bubble of the roaring 20’s?

    “The world lives in a fools paradise based upon fictitious wealth, rash promises and mad illusions.
    We must beware of booms based upon false prosperity which has it roots in inflated credits and prices.”

    Real estate here in the lower mainland of BC is just stupid. I know of a family both parents who are working at good jobs the lady wants to start a home based business as well as working full time to get in on the action of buying real estate in the fear of being left out! With 2 jobs they can’t afford the bubble and so add more work lol? Yeah, I say you really think your going to buy at say 999,000 and then sell when at 1,900,000 while rubbing your hands in glee?

      “Capitalism” shouldn’t be confused with what we have now, which, especially since the virus hoax, is monopolyism, the exact opposite of capitalism. Or another word could be “cartellism”. Take your pick.
      Some say the merging of the monopolies with the government means it’s “fascist”, but that’s like saying a country with a gulag is communist. It takes allot more than one similarity to make something fascist or communist.
      Adam Smith’s books were to be taken together, what he called capitalism in The Wealth of Nations was impossible to work without the morality of a religious people expressed in The Theory of Moral Sentiments.
      Just like a constitutional Republic doesn’t work without a religious, moral people, of a similar race, whith lots in common.
      The American Republic lasted until the civil war, when it became a continental empire, then after WWII, a world empire.
      You just have to look at the way Washington DC was built(you can add to this point all the masonic stuff if you want, even without it, nothing changes).
      Were they preparing for a small, limited federal government with next to no business in the states? Or were they planning the base from which to snatch world power, the idealistic little representative republic of Jefferson and Washington was the last thing on their minds.

        The Adam Smith Myth

        TAGS History of the Austrian School of EconomicsPraxeology

        01/13/2006Murray N. Rothbard
        (This is an excerpt from Chapter 16 of An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought, Vol. I and II, Edward Elgar, 1995; Mises Institute 2006. Here is his source page )

        Adam Smith (1723-90) is a mystery in a puzzle wrapped in an enigma. The mystery is the enormous and unprecedented gap between Smith’s exalted reputation and the reality of his dubious contribution to economic thought.

        Smith’s reputation almost blinds the sun. From shortly after his own day until very recently, he was thought to have created the science of economics virtually de novo. He was universally hailed as the Founding Father. Books on the history of economic thought, after a few well-deserved sneers at the mercantilists and a nod to the physiocrats, would invariably start with Smith as the creator of the discipline of economics. Any errors he made were understandably excused as the inevitable flaws of any great pioneer.

        Innumerable words have been written about him. At the bicentennial of his magnum opus, An Inquiry into the Nature and the Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776), a veritable flood of books, essays, and memorabilia poured forth about the quiet Scottish professor. His profile sculpted on a medallion by Tassie is known throughout the world. A hagiographic movie was even made about Smith during the bicentennial by a free market foundation, and businessmen and free market advocates have long hailed Adam Smith as their patron saint.

        ‘Adam Smith ties’ were worn as a badge of honour in the upper echelons of the Reagan Administration.

        On the other hand, Marxists, with somewhat more justice, hail Smith as the ultimate inspiration of their own Founding Father, Karl Marx. Indeed, if the average person were asked to name two economists in history whom he has heard of, Smith and Marx would probably be the runaway winners of the poll.

        As we have already seen, Smith was scarcely the founder of economic science, a science which existed since the medieval scholastics and, in its modern form, since Richard Cantillon. But what the German economists used to call, in a narrower connection, Das AdamSmithProblem,[i] is much more severe than that. For the problem is not simply that Smith was not the founder of economics.

        The Masterpiece is Here!
        The problem is that he originated nothing that was true, and that whatever he originated was wrong; that, even in an age that had fewer citations or footnotes than our own, Adam Smith was a shameless plagiarist, acknowledging little or nothing and stealing large chunks, for example, from Cantillon. Far worse was Smith’s complete failure to cite or acknowledge his beloved mentor Francis Hutcheson, from whom he derived most of his ideas as well as the organization of his economic and moral philosophy lectures. Smith indeed wrote in a private letter to the University of Glasgow of the ‘never-to-be-forgotten Dr. Hutcheson,’ but apparently amnesia conveniently struck Adam Smith when it came time to writing the Wealth of Nations for the general public.[ii]

        The Constitution never was about “securing rights,” except for the rights of the State. It is a blank check on power, as intended. I surmise that the bill of rights was to mollify certain factions- we’ll stick this [append] on here so the rubes will think we are on their side. Then we let the rights idea erode over the decades, but we leave the BOR in place so folks will continue to support a totally corrupt State- just like today. The Constitution has enough loopholes to service
        an unlimited number of special interests. [regulation of commerce, and so on]

        btw the Pledge of Allegiance was penned by a socialist/communist- Francis Bellamy [1892]

        btw The Founders pictures are still on the Jewish fake money, to establish apparent continuity with a free past. Truth would demand pictures of Silverstein and Madoff. . .

    For those who wish to join in the fight for our folk, I would simply repeat the advice of a Chinese General from antiquity: KNOW THE ENEMY (and share that knowledge with friends). The enemy is NOT liberals, Antifa, BLM or Democrats. They are just the tools.

    in 1914. Trotsky(a nasty little shit who turned into a nasty big shit according to my family (jew side)) was one of the errand boys bribing and blackmailing the useful peasants and more important people.
    The major European powers were dismantling their empires while Germany was trying to create one.
    WW1 was made possible by German militarism, helped by America until the Balfour Declaration.
    The State Dept. will now lose the White Man Aus., NZ and Canada. The clowns always get it wrong.

      excuse me but the archduke was assassinated by a jew, causing a chain reaction that resulted in the atomization of the ottoman empire into dozens of puppet states controlled by jews, and the creation of the balfour agreement, leading to this abomination called israel. A must read is William Daughtery’s Psychological Warfare Casebook, which has an interesting chapter detailing how US jews, who were supporting Germany in WWI (unbelievable but true) were swayed by lord balfour’s promise to create an israel, in exchange for their shifting alliances to the US efforts in the war. There was also the double benefit where the belfour agreement also swayed the jewish bolsheviks in russia to back down from the revolution, in order to keep the white russians on the front lines a little longer, until US troops made advances on the western front. It’s an interesting read. Lots they hide from us.

    Ferguson has an article in the British “Daily Mail”, November 6, 2021, stating that American parents are appalled at what their children are being taught. So influential are ideas like Critical Race Theory, he says, that almost “every school, college and corporation in the land is currently working on its so-called ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ strategy” and “disparaging today’s white kids for their ‘privilege’.” The situation is similar in Britain, except that it is encouraged, funded and enforced by Government and Non-Government organizations, with the main difference being that the US still has free speech and the UK does not. Ferguson thinks that Trump could return to the presidency on a wave of conservative anger, but I fear that, if so, he woud be as ineffective as Boris in reversing the long-planned, extensive and cunning “woke war” on the native whites and their cultural heritage,

    In this interview Niall Ferguson talks about the university he’s establishing with Peter Thiel’s support featuring courses by academics who have been “cancelled”. If Thiel et al were moderately serious, they’d at least one of 2 things:

    1) Invite Kevin MacDonald to teach a course based on his book “Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition”
    2) Establish lossless compression of a wide range of longitudinal social measures (including GWAS) as causal model selection criterion in the sociology department.

    There is no excuse for failing to do both of these.

    I’m holding my breath for neither.
