Of migrants and moralities

Rorchach test of moral valuation
Slave morality -- It was an evil thing Europeans did to American Indians, so they deserve to have something similar done to them.

Master morality -- This was bad for the people who allowed it to happen to them. We will not allow it to happen to us.

Nietzsche's duality is applicable not just in the case of an individual internet meme, but on mass migration from relatively dysfunctional, violent, chaotic places to relatively functional, non-violent, controlled places more generally. Jayman may hate to quote her, but the point is so blatantly obvious that he isn't going to contest its validity:


Other than for the purposes of moral posturing and virtue signalling, there are no compelling reasons* to do it.

Humorously, as of late social justice warriors have been emphasizing the divine sanction of their mission. To many of these people, history started when they were in grade school. The religious and historical ignorance of the arguments they put forward are a consequence of this ignorance. An example of the former:


As told in Luke, the story is that Joseph and Mary were returning to Joseph's ancestral home to register for a mandatory Roman census. It's not a tale of fleeing persecution at all. To the contrary, it's a story of being legally compelled to return home.

Which, you know, is what a lot of people want the refugees to do (and what one presidential candidate has pledged to make them do).

And of the latter:


The sermon on the mount putatively occurred 600 years before Islam came into existence. Yikes.

* From a nationalist or a citizenist perspective--if the objective is the demographic displacement of white America, the reasons for support are obvious.

It's *almost* right. They did flee persecution in the Middle East and were refugees: Herod's slaughter of the innocents in the other gospel, which forced them to go to Egypt. It's just that that's usually not included in most nativity plays, which cut out at the Wise Mens' gifts...

Gwern,

The creche, with the exception of the magi, is entirely from Luke, as is the nativity story as generally relayed to Christians across the country every year around Christmas. The treatment of the nativity in Luke is much longer than it is in Matthew, and the story in Luke is where the popular version of the Nativity comes from.

The Luke story, which is the nativity story as popularly understood, is more palatable than the Matthew story. Something about a Jewish king trying to commit infanticide against the Christian savior just doesn't quite sit right in contemporary America!

This Muslim invasion both here and Europe is much like the intifada that the Eye of Soros is funding with BLM terrorists. They want violence and trouble. 9/11 got them a free ticket to get rid of privacy and start up a turnkey police state. If they have more violence and more troublemakers they can disarm people and restrict rights like speech that might cause riots or trouble.
Its not going to work but these idiots are stupid and if something works once they keep doing it forever. I expect a whole new group of Far Right Nationalist Parties will suddenly pop up all over Europe. And here in the USA, its just a giant powderkeg. These fuckers keep playing with matches and there is gonna be a POWWOW.

I don't even read JayMan anymore. His tri-racial makeup clouds his thinking and feeling. He does not understand what's wrong with turning the whole world into a brown soup (that's what you get when you mix all colours), so I'm done with him. It's like Cochran wrote in his latest post: let's not fuck every advanced country up, leave at least one intact for when things really get out of hand.
