Sony: The Logical end Result of the Culture Wars

December 20th, 2014 | No Comments

He [Theodore Arduino] got there [ Santa Monica ] from Nazi Germany and immediately became chronically depressed because everybody was so cheerful, relentlessly cheerful and that they were caught up in consumerism, he was depressed because they were not nihilists like he was.

The more I think about what happened with Sony the more I realize how incredibly unsurprising this is.

One of the things that Andrew Breitbart talked about often was the strategy of the left and the enemies of America to attack the nation through its culture since its economic and military might was too great to overcome. Six months before he died he discussed this in Lexington MA

The Sony Hack is the logical conclusion to what we have seen during our lifetime.

From prayer in schools to team mascots, to testing standards, to the words “Merry Christmas” & even “Father & Mother” and Public Statements of basic biology (To wit: No amount of surgery or hormones treatments actually changes a man into a woman or vice versa) through a series of intimidation and annoyance we as a culture have allowed a small but well funded minority of people to literally dismantle the culture to the point where a member of the greatest generation (You know that generation that saved the world from the Nazi’s) would not recognise it.

At each step in this culture war people have advocated appeasement, it’s just a small thing, it’s not worth the lawsuit, they’ll make too much trouble for us, it will break our budget to give in and finance these type, much like the European Powers once paid off the Barbary Pirates or the British the Danegeld and with each such payment and concession these forces have simply gotten stronger as Kipling once warned:

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say: –
“Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

Short sighted people who look only to their own comfort and advancement have found the culture war quite profitable.  By giving lip service or actual aid to these forces they have been granted short term legitimacy, personal comfort and to some degree power but once you empower such people you are owned:

It tells you a lot about media/Hollywood priorities that a person at the heart of an unprecedented cyber-sh*tstorm that’s brought her company to its knees and is rapidly becoming an international crisis with a nuclear-armed North Korea felt she’d better take time immediately to kiss Al Sharpton’s ass as penance for a tacky joke. (Trey Parker and Matt Stone, whose own movie ended up as collateral damage in the aftermath of “The Interview” being pulled by Sony, understand what public contrition for racial offenses entails.) Sharpton’s obviously enjoying it too: The money line from his presser yesterday is “the jury is still out on where we go with Amy,” a sly but probably correct insinuation that whether she gets to keep her job at Sony going forward depends on how accommodating she is to whatever demands he comes up with for absolution. If I were her, I’d cut him a seven-figure check (if she hasn’t already) and hope, in the spirit of the Christmas season, he doesn’t tell her to make it eight.

And as such people fighting this war have overwhelmingly gone to media & education (you don’t expect them to go into any kind of field that actually involves building or creating something did you?) they have found themselves in the best possible spot to distract the uninformed & misdirect the inexperienced.

That incidentally is the entire basis for the march of the current breed of feminist, by this method they have actually reached the point where you have men making declarations like this:

If you’ve been socialized in dominant constructions of gender in the US (and many other parts of the “Western” world for that matter), no matter how much you try to be an ally, you’re going to screw up.  This is because it takes tremendous work on self for those socialized into privilege to fight that socialization. . . .

This is the reason why the founding fathers had to be discredited and minimized in the schools, because if you learn about and respect men who say things like this:

“With hearts fortified with these animating reflections, we most solemnly, before God and the world, declare, that, exerting the utmost energy of those powers, which our beneficent Creator hath graciously bestowed upon us, the arms we have compelled by our enemies to assume, we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverance employ for the preservation of our liberties; being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live as slaves.”

You’re certainly not going to give into  3rd rate apparatchik who says he is offended by your nativity scene, or your political donations.

There is only one solution to this kind of cultural rot and that is the one that Kipling gave at the end of his poem

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: –

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!”

Unfortunately years of conditioning and giving in makes this kind of retaliation and courage difficult. It sometimes takes a really big shock to realize the state you’re in so you can regain your lost dignity.

Let’s hope the Sony situation is that shock.
