The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition


What is the most basic human instinct? Self-preservation; and many other powerful instincts flow from this. Oh, we can quibble, and I won't be too doctrinaire, but it is certainly up there with the important ones.

Here is Sarah Hoyt discussing the very real everyday experience of self-preservation when it is in conflict with the insanity that is leftist/postmodern social norms. Well, that's my view of it anyway.


For instance, when going into an elevator with a burly man whose eyes look feral (you’ll know it when you see it, trust me) you might feel a pang of fear. But if you’re a well brought up woman and particularly if the man is another race you might not want to show it. After all you’re not a racist, right?

But what you actually should be asking yourself is: Should I die because I don’t want to be impolite?

Sure what you’re picking up on might be prejudiced. Or just paranoid. Sure, maybe you’re reacting to this guy because his clothes are old, and he’s a different race.

But maybe not.

I am fascinated by the Left's insistence on rejecting nationalism and tribalism and all of the other perfectly normal and natural tendencies that man has had since he became Man. And obviously well before that as proto-humans.

History teaches us that tamping down the unquenchable desire to be around people like us is a recipe for very bad things. We have discussed this in the past, and of course the excellent recent example of Yugoslavia comes to everyone's minds, but there are dozens of examples in any history book if the progressives would just bother to read one or two. Yeah, that won't happen, because THIS TIME they will get it right!

Is it the loss of the instinct for self-preservation? How can that be? Have we finally selected against the very thing that created us?

Looking at photographs of progressive crowds gives me the distinct impression that it's more than just lack of self-preservation...it's probably a subliminal distaste for the blue-haired tatted chick with the gut and the piercings, and an instinctual sense that the effete, man-bun-wearing, skinny-jeans dude with the whispy adolescent beard is not going to confer robust genes on your offspring.

Maybe there is a more powerful societal self-preservation that prevents these types from breeding too much!
