Taki at Takimag on Israel as the Bernie Madoff of countries.
As we show below, Taki has it backwards. Its the PLO, Hammas, etc. that are the Bernie Madoff of countries. They are the false claimants to be a country as a legal moral ethical entity that spreads and rewards good and stops the spread of bad internally, externally and into itself.
The Palestinian authority is the Bernie Madoff of countries. This is because a country is supposed to be a legal moral entity that upholds both law, morality and justice. Palestinian entities do the opposite. A portfolio manager is supposed to invest your money not steal it. So its Palestinian entities who are BM of countries.
Palestinians teach hatred, genocide, immorality, blood lust, and murder. They teach that intentionally to children. They are a pathogen of history.
One can analyze human affairs and history in terms of genes. But then one must choose. Its not that every gene is equal. Its not that whichever gene wins, its the same. Its not that whatever gene occupies a land should own it. Genes are not rooted to land.
Genes spread, everywhere and always. Its a question of which ones. That is the real issue of morality. Helping bad genes exist means helping bad ones spread. That means the end of human civilization. Spreading bad genes means the end of goodness, morality, law and ethics. Thus to support the victory of bad genes over good can’t be justified on moral grounds, since its the destruction of morality itself that it leads to.
Human development means weeding out bad genes. Human destruction means the spread and even persistence of bad genes. Bad genes that persist anywhere will spread. Thus human development means the spread of good genes and their replacement of bad genes everywhere. That is morality.
Genes that are the carriers of morality must replace those that are the enemy of morality. That is the only moral course. There is no morality at all in genes that undermine morality replacing those that do. To let such genes persist anywhere is to let them spread everywhere. Thus morality requires their being culled out. That is the only possible morality. Anything else is the end of morality itself.
Opposing genes that carry morality and supporting those that oppose morality is to oppose morality. Liberalism is about opposing and destroying morality. Liberalism is amoral. Liberalism is actually evil. It casts itself in the role of Satan. It uses lies as its preferred method. It says it will do good but delivers evil. The outcome is always evil but the promise good. This is the essence of Satanism and is what Bernie Madoff has pled guilty to in the instances in his plea.
Morality is about self control. Palestinians are about the opposite. Palestinians have shown their lack of self control and that they idolize violent emotion and physical violence over education, work and cooperation. They have intentionally chosen violence over cooperation.
Whatever money Palestinians are given, they waste. This is whether it comes from Arabs, Christians or Jews. The result is the same. They are incapable of being good stewards of money. Or of land. They destroy and despoil any land they are given. When Gaza was given to them by Israel, the Palestinians proceeded to destroy the buildings and improvements to the land.
Taki’s fallacy is useful because it leads us to the truth. This is like much of neoconism. A neocon is someone who advocates defeat against every foe that threatens the West while pretending to fight at least one of them. A conservative is someone who advocates publicly the measures needed to defeat at least one foe of the West. There are few conservatives.
For example, a conservative advocates drafting 2 million men, invading Iran removing its nuclear program, surrounding and blockading Pakistan to do the same, and the invasion of Saudi Arabia to remove Islam at the source. Or a conservative advocates the end of 3rd world immigration and measures that will remove the 3rd world invasive population over time from the West. A conservative is against know-how transfer to China and for stopping Chinese immigration and the gradual return of Chinese to China, because they are a fifth column in the West. There are few conservatives.
Taki is at his core the same as Frum. Takism and Frumism are at the core the same. They both shy away from advocating victory for the West. Or rather, Taki shies away, and Frum is an opportunist as Auster has pointed out who is really the deadly enemy of the West. Taki is a dilettante who can’t remember his lessons. One hopes he can learn, but it never happens. Taki is a perpetual C student on Western survival and anything else which requires a combination of theory and fact. Auster on the other hand is excellent and a fearless realist on that combination when analyzing the threats and remedies the West must pursue.
