That other populist movement

We’re speaking, of course, of Corbynism and Sanderism:

An interesting niche in the political Left has appeared over the last 18 months. They are a segment of the Bernie Sanders wing of the Left, socialists who oppose racial identity politics generally and the shaming of poor whites in particular. I call them the anti-anti-white Left.

They are vehemently opposed to the Clinton family and mainstream Democratic figures such as Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid—whom they consider part of the exploiting class—and they attack capitalism, war, and almost every liberal pundit.

I mean, what it comes down to in the end, what it has always come down to is jobs – my job and yours personally. Everything else is just words. Now, if you offer me a utopia where my salary is guaranteed – or at least some sort of payout someone else pays for – then who am I to complain?

And that’s as far as the thinking goes. As all those right of Mao know, the money must come from somewhere to pay for all that. But, say the left, why must it? Why does the State not just issue chits for food and other things?

Answer is that the State then becomes all-powerful and society stagnates and is interfered with, even in the bedroom – it always has. Then it breaks down – it always has. And the evil muvvers running the State from behind the scenes – they create wars and kill our sons [now daughters too].

But the Charlotte Churches cannot see any of this. There has to be something pretty powerful to make these people continue in their ignorance and there is – this love everyone, bird with the broken wing thingy. Nowt wrong with that but it must be tempered by reality, i.e. the businesses of the land must be producing something in order to produce jobs. You know that, I know that, now the workers are realizing that the Democrats and Labour are actually part of the elite triumvirate – Big Government, Big Business and Big Unions. Add Big Press.

So they flock to Sanders and Corbyn – men with no viable economic plan, yet two men who believe there must actually be a Masterplan. They say Trump has no plan beyond encouraging businesses.

That’s it – that’s the plan. The State need not have a Masterplan, it can only reduce and simplify taxes and stop governmental wastage. That’s it, economically. Taking care of defence, borders and provision for the truly unfortunate, natives or approved demi-natives by the way, of all shapes and sizes, all colours, including white and attending to things which can’t be local, and protecting what is rightfully people’s due to paying in most of their lives – that’s the business of State.

Which then gets us onto outsourcing, the Achilles heel of capitalism. I see no solution to that, nor to automation but what I do know is that all those soon-to-be-unemployed must not be on the State teat.

If the State is going to do anything, then it should protect and encourage the white van man, the little lady selling her cooking on street corners, the little man repairing shoes in a booth near his home, stop this ‘concessions’ rubbish. Local farmers bring their wares to these encampments which must at least conform to standards of hygiene. And that’s it.

We have a populist figure in Nigel who perhaps lacks the drive of a Trump, we do need someone with drive who simply says: ‘Stop paying the EU.’ End of.

    Outsourcing works in some cases, but not in others. When it works it is usually (taking dyson, for example_ because our own people are just too expensive to turn a profit. The problem then isn’t outsourcing, it’s taxation and regulation.

    I find it frustrating that it’s cheaper to send the expensive books I buy overseas to be printed then shipped home again than to just print them here, but it is. I’ve seen the taxes levied against printers for what they throw away – often by necessity.

    It just needs a bit of distance to look at the underlying problem: taxation, big state than to se idiotic politicians blithering about about ‘how awful it is’ when they’re the ones who have destroyed the jobs in the first place.

      Taxation is the big one – govt simply does not want onshore businesses.

    The big problem is automation. Once most production is by robots, then we need a huge set of technicians to fix things and people with those skills are hard to find now. The other issue is where do people get the funds to pay for stuff, if they have no jobs?
