Clown World Chronicles: Race Relations In Clown World

Race relations have always been tricky, because they’ve always involved a degree of coercion. But for most of the recent history of the West, we’ve managed to muddle through. This was until Clown World dawned, and brought acrimony and hatred into every aspect of life, and few more so than race relations.

Ideally, race relations would be a matter of mutual appreciation in the same way that the yang appreciates the yin. In practice, the different natures of the different races creates a number of challenges. Varying biology leads to varying cultural values, and this makes it hard to find a middle ground that everyone can agree on.

In Clown World, race relations are as antagonistic as many would think possible. Things are so bad that it’s now possible to speak openly about resegregation (along the lines of e.g. the New Afrika model). This grim state of affairs is the case all across the Western World.

In the New World, there are natural tensions arising from the fact that the New World is made up of colonies. This means that there is an inherent conflict between the settler government and the political structure of the natives. These tensions are especially bad in places like America, Brazil and South Africa, which had some form of slavery.

In the Old World, there are similar tensions, only from different causes. The race problems in the Old World have been imported over the course of the last 60 years. Germany, France and Britain imported cheap labour from Turkey, North Africa and the West Indies (respectively), and now the offspring of those imports are clashing with the natives.

Race relations in the West probably peaked when Martin Luther King declared that people ought to be judged on the character and not on the colour of their skin. People tried doing that, and it led to a degree of race unity that posed a direct threat to the interests of the ruling class. This had consequences that terrified the ruling class, such as the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The ruling class quickly realised that, in order to secure their position, the various races had to be set at each other’s throats. The story of race relations in Clown World is the story of how this was achieved.

In Singapore, most racial tension was solved by the brilliant Lee Kwan Yew, who intuited early the problems that would arise from pretending all races are the same. Lee Kwan Yew understood that if we say all races are the same, then any economic disparity must have arisen from oppression. Therefore, equalitarianism is a recipe for resentment and discord.

The West, unfortunately, adopted a different approach, and it was partly the decision to do so that led to Clown World.

In Clown World, your skin is your uniform.

If you have white skin, you’re automatically to blame for all the greed of other people with white skin. Wearing white skin marks you as a member of the oppressor class, a beneficiary of slavery and of warmongering. It means that you have “privilege”.

If you have dark skin, you’re automatically a victim. Poor, sweet, innocent, native, innocent of all misdoing. Any crime you commit is the fault of the white man whose economic oppression forced you into desperate circumstances. Even if you rape and murder someone, the white man made you do it.

This state of affairs, quite naturally, appalls two major groups of people: the working-class whites and the non-criminal browns and blacks, neither of who are given due respect. These two groups, who have a great deal in common, are thereby pitted against two other major groups of people: the middle-class whites and the criminal browns and blacks, both of who benefit enormously from racial conflict and strife.

In short, the ruling classes of Clown World understood that racial tensions had to be stoked in order to distract from their misrule. However, it’s not just a simple matter of stoking tensions. It’s mostly about the psychological control that can be seized as a consequence of those tensions.

Although your skin is your uniform in Clown World, this can never be admitted. Not only is racial consciousness higher than ever, but the imperative to deny it is stronger than ever. The slightest error will bring accusations of racism crashing upon you like an ocean wave. The big challenge comes from the fact that the mass media has brought about a renaissance in race-based thinking – mostly through constantly highlighting any and all race issues, and magnifying them into global dramas.

This has created a situation that is ripe for racial tension. Now, even though most people know it’s a bad idea, it’s normal to identify with one’s race instead of the wider community. People can’t help doing so because it’s become normalised thanks to McDiversity. Clown World is when society becomes ever more like a Californian prison, where social bonds are made on the basis of skin colour before any other quality.

These racial tensions have all but destroyed the west, but that is by design. As far back as Aristotle it had been observed that tyrants tend to rule over multicultural societies, because the racial tensions inherent to them created the kind of animosity that made people happy to put evil men in power.

Race relations in Clown World, then, are about as poor as one might expect, given the enormous lack of social coherency and the aggressiveness of the propaganda campaign dividing us all.

Clown World Chronicles: Spirituality In Clown World

As a society declines, usually the first thing that disappears is spirituality. Once a society loses touch with God, and starts adopting superstitious religion in place of genuine spiritual tradition, it’s only a matter of time until they lose everything else. Spirituality is the cornerstone that we’re missing in Clown World, and the lack of it causes many of our problems.

The elementary problem is what can be described as the Clown World Fork: either worship Jesus as God, or not believe in God. This is the fundamental spiritual dilemma facing the denizens of Clown World. Because the spiritual foundations of the West are rotten with Christianity, the spiritually inclined have great difficulty finding an alternative to Jesus-worship.

Those who are born into Christianity have the option of worshipping Rabbi Yeshua ben Yosef in place of God, thereby opening themselves up to a lifetime of doubt and confusion. All of them who have a spiritual sense will intuit that they are worshipping an idol, and this will lead them into misery and despair, and usually away from the religion.

Those who are not born into Christianity, or who reject it, have the option of becoming atheists. Such people tend to be big fans of Richard Dawkins (who, while a genius evolutionary biologist, is no theologian). This atheism brings with it the belief that consciousness is extinguished upon the death of the brain, and consequently also leads to misery and despair.

Worshipping God as God is not permitted. Understanding that the material world is an illusion and that consciousness survives the death of the physical body is right out. Any such genuine spirituality is dismissed – or worse. This has led to an immense dissatisfaction among the more open-minded people. Anyone with an innate spiritual sense is all but guaranteed to suffer from the Clown World Fork.

Most cruel of all, there is no easy way for these people to get solace. Back in the day, spiritual misfits were able to find others of their kind in secret societies, or were at least able to disconnect from the world in monasteries, but today they are simply flung into the void – if they’re lucky. They might also get directly persecuted by a psychiatric system that is almost entirely staffed by hard-core materialists.

In Clown World, all talk of genuine spirituality is considered mental illness. Not only has science proven that God doesn’t exist, but psychiatric science has advanced to the point where we know that anyone who believes in God is mentally ill. Anyone who speaks of direct knowledge of God is considered to be on the verge of losing their mind completely.

In the opinion of the mental health system, anyone speaking of God is psychotic and therefore a danger to themselves and others. They probably need to be medicated until they come back into their bodies again and realise that there is no God. At this point, they will once again feel the yawning existential despair that marks normality.

This approach is why entheogens such as LSD and psilocybin, the latter of which has been used for millennia to reconnect with God, are considered to be psychotogenics rather than spiritual sacraments. It’s true that consuming these sacraments can be a bad idea for the wrong sort of person, but for a person who is properly prepared, an infinitude of spiritual insight can be gained.

Being properly prepared is a matter of doing the correct spiritual work, which in practice means a lot of meditation and wrestling with one’s shadow. But spirituality in Clown World seldom recognises either as avenues to spiritual wisdom. In fact, the remnants of Abrahamism tend to dismiss meditation as an avenue to demonic possession. Sitting still and peaceful with a headful of propaganda and advertising jingles is not easy, and in Clown World there are few with the requisite capacity for delaying gratification.

In Clown World, spirituality has degraded to such a point that all discussion about life after death is terrifying. So terrifying that it’s traumatic to raise the subject. If a person starts talking about taking a psychedelic and having an ego death experience, they are liable to trigger panic attacks among their listeners.

It’s common for people in Clown World to have never devoted any real time or thought to the question of their demise, inevitable though it be. Most people go from work to television to bed then back to work, with very little time devoted to contemplation. The few groups that are contemplative are dogma-bound.

Despite this, the need for spirituality is as great as ever. The yearning for answers still expresses itself, in several ways.

We may have killed the Christian God in the late 19th Century, but superstitious behaviours remain. Christianity has been reborn as social justice warrior culture. Instead of flagellating ourselves, we degrade ourselves with struggle sessions. Instead of having original sin because of our lust, we have original sin because of our racism. Instead of fighting heathenry, we fight white supremacy.

Things are so desperate that some are even turning to Islam as a solution to Clown World’s degeneracy problems. This desperation is encapsulated in the phrases “Islam is right about women” and “Islam is right about homosexuals”.

The suffering caused by the fear of death and by nihilism is immense. It’s the primary reason why we live in such a shabby and plastic world. Clown World spirituality leaves no-one fulfilled, and does more to mislead than it does to assuage anyone’s torment. The first sign of Clown World ending will be the introduction of a new spiritual tradition.

Clown World Chronicles: Education In Clown World

Going through the education system is tough at any time, in any place. Most children would rather be outside playing than sitting in a classroom, and for them it’s not always obvious what the value of an education might be. Although getting educated is, in theory, a great privilege, in practice the value of an education varies.

The education systems of the past have given us a foretaste of what Clown World would be like. With its indifferent authorities, its braying masses, its absurd rules and regulations, its propensity for fads and fashions and its non-consensual nature, the education system was always a Clown World in microcosm.

Clown World education began with the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999. This was the moment when most people realised how shit the school system really was. Up until then, it was laughed off or denied. After then, it was acknowledged that school truly sucked for a great number of people, and that bullying and emotional abuse were rife.

These shootings led to one of the stranger aspects of Clown World education: school shooter drills. Because schools have now been shot up by disgruntled students so many times, it’s common for them to run drills where children are taught to lock the classroom door and hide. Mass shooter drills are so common that psychologists have analysed how to conduct them most effectively.

These drills aren’t the most horrifying thing in Clown World education – that’s the brainwashing.

The problem is that school could be great. In theory, a place where a young person could go to learn accurate information about the world would be excellent. It would prepare them for life as an adult and would make that life much easier. After all, there are few things that cause as much suffering as ignorance.

Unfortunately, politics has prevailed. The opportunity to mold the minds of the next generation proved too tempting for those who had ambitions to reshape society. Schools have always been brainwashing centres, but they have become worse in recent decades as they have attracted a certain sort of person to their staff.

There is immense power in being able to dictate the terms of reality to impressionable people. So those who wish to reshape the world in their own image have always been drawn to taking jobs in education. Today, instead of being places of education, schools have become places of indoctrination.

The ‘Long March through the Institutions‘ is the name given to the Marxist strategy of reshaping society by infiltrating its institutions, taking high positions of power, then using that power to destroy their opponents. Along with the media, the education system has been a primary target of these activists.

The logic is that teachers can indoctrinate any children under their command into believing whatever the teacher desires. So if the teacher is on a social justice crusade, they have a captive audience to push that on. Even if some children reject the programming, most of them will be some form of NPC, and will repeat what they’re told uncritically.

So most teachers are now social justice warriors or at least committed leftists. One study found that, at America’s top 40 universities, leftist professors outnumbered right-wing ones by 12 to 1. The situation is similar at earlier levels. This has ensured that students in Clown World only get to hear the accepted, politically correct perspective.

Complicating things is the influence of big business. From the advent of public education, business interests have lobbied politicians to design the education system in such a way that the needs of employers are met.

What big business wants are workers who are too traumatised to resist authority or to demand wage increases. They want mindless drones who turn up on time, do their jobs without complaint, and then fuck off home. The last thing they want is a population instructed about the workings of politics who could effectively oppose them.

The education system meets corporate needs as much as it meets anyone else’s. That’s why it isn’t fussed about the bullying that can lead to events like the Columbine Shootings. School bullying is simply the way that young people are broken in and brought to the heel of their elders. Only through repeated exposure to human sadism can the desired degree of submission be achieved.

This is also why children are educated to solve technical issues and not, for example, mental health issues. Children will learn trigonometry well before they learn to recognise the signs of depression, even though the latter skill is far more likely to be useful. Clown World doesn’t care about solving mental health issues. Mentally ill workers are chucked on the scrapheap and new ones imported.

In Clown World, you get this form of education whether you like it or not. Children are the property of the government, and this goes for their minds as well as their bodies. This is why governments across the West are opposing moves to allow homeschooling of children. Homeschooling is either illegal or heavily regulated in most Western countries today.

You have to learn what the government wants you to learn – and that’s technical skills, submission or just crap. It’s in achieving the latter two objectives that so much time is taken up with Holocaust classes or hamfisted attempts to “end racism”. Such teaching instills submission-inducing guilt even more effectively than a priest could.

It’s also why there is so much emphasis on homework – students have to learn, as early as possible, that their time is owned by someone else. That someone with the power to punish them is always watching. Clown World education teaches delusion and submission for political and economic reasons. It’s so pozzed, some classrooms even teach that objectivity is white supremacy!

Unluckiest of all is the student who genuinely wants to learn, as he will most likely be surrounded by howling monkeys who don’t.

Clown World Chronicles: Business In Clown World

A common proverb states that the business of America is business. Indeed, America has long been the place where fortunes were made. But now that the West has degenerated into Clown World, business works in a different way. Fortunes are still made – but at a cost.

Clown World commerce is not what we’re used to. The story we’re all told at school is that productivity is a function of capital and labour, which work happily together to create needed goods and services. The supply of needed goods and services ameliorates human suffering and therefore earns profits and is a moral good.

The reality is much more complicated.

Although most of this book blames varieties of Marxism, atheism and materialism for Clown World’s woes, a large amount of the blame must be placed on capitalism. The political demands made by Marxists may be obvious, but the demands made by capitalists are no less pressing. These demands have had the effect of making Western society more of a twisted circus.

Capitalism is to blame for the fact that the growth of low and middle-income wages has decoupled from productivity. Although productivity has increased several times over recent decades, wage growth has lagged a long way behind. This has occurred because capital has exploited its strengthening negotiating position to offer workers worse deals. This change is shown graphically on the website WTF Happened in 1971.

The major consequence of this decoupling is that most of the increase in wealth accrues to an ever-smaller section of the population. Some studies suggest that the top 1% of the American population has looted as much as 85% of the growth in wealth since the Global Financial Crisis. In Clown World business, the system does not work for the good of the population, but only for the people at the top.

Capitalism is also to blame for the mass importation of cheap labour, as well as the sentiment that bringing in cheap labour is necessary because the locals are unwilling to do those jobs. Major industrial interests lobby government representatives to open borders and to lift restrictions on the movement of cheap labour. They also instruct their propaganda organs to manufacture public approval for such measures.

The Clown World workplace operates on a model closer to that of West Indian sugar plantations: if you won’t work for nothing, we’ll find someone who will. Any demand for a fair wage is portrayed as a refusal to work. The Clown World media plays a crucial role, supporting the capitalists by running stories about how fruit and vegetables will rot in the fields if immigration restrictions are not relaxed.

Things are so badly tilted towards capital now that it has become extremely difficult to buy a home without using inherited money. In New Zealand, house prices have increased 7 times since 1992, but wages have only increased 2.25 times. It’s a similar grim story in other Western countries. In the United States things are so bad that it was possible for the Wall Street Journal to headline an article with “Millions of Young People Shut Out of the Housing Market.”

Clown World business is about maximising short-term profit at the expense of all other considerations.

Because labour is usually one of the largest costs of any business, Clown World has seen extreme measures taken to cut labour costs. The most popular of those has been to ship manufacturing and services overseas to cheap labour zones that don’t have expensive regulation relating to worker protection.

The result of this drive for cheap labour is a lower quality of goods and services. We might have more of everything, but that everything is worse. By today, it’s all but impossible to speak to a customer service representative who has English as a native language. The result is confusion and frustration.

The drive to cut costs doesn’t stop at being cheap. It can extend to living entirely off someone else’s credit.

In Clown World business, it’s possible to live off investor money as it keeps rolling in, rather than make a profit. It’s not actually necessary to turn a profit and live off that, as a traditional business would. Investor money will keep coming into a business as long as that business retains a positive reputation. This means public relations.

As recently as 2015, media giant YouTube had never turned a profit, and it’s not clear that they turn one now. Twitter still doesn’t turn a profit. It’s not necessary to ever turn a profit as long as investor money keeps coming in to finance operations. And this money will keep rolling in as long as the company has good public relations. In Clown World business, success is mostly a matter of politics.

That politics trumps profit in Clown World can be seen from the bizarre alliances that corporate titans make with various political movements. Before the body of George Floyd had cooled to room temperature, major corporations had hit the media with campaigns showing their support for Black Lives Matter. Even McDonald’s ran an advertisement hailing the memory of Floyd.

These alliances help secure government funding, which is often even better than investor funding because it can come in the form of grants. The Government is a major source of funding for Clown World business, whether in the form of business development grants or tax breaks. Elon Musk got $4,900,000,000 of it! If you can convince an important person that your business is likely to provide jobs in the future, chances are good that person will cut you some public cash.

A business model where people are paid low wages, and hence can’t buy the goods and services of other businesses, isn’t sustainable for long. Sooner or later the impoverished masses start counting every last dollar, and when they do the consumerist economy shudders to a halt. Clown World business is when all long-term considerations are abandoned in favour of the next quarterly report.

There are many questions around Clown World business in the post-coronavirus future. If consumption falls sharply, how will people stay employed? If they can’t stay employed, must we introduce a universal basic income? And if 50% of women under 30 supplement their income with OnlyFans payments, where does that leave young men?
