Things aren’t so bad

General Ideas

In last week’s column I raised an issue that had hit home a bit personally — the increasing number of mass murders committed in our country’s public places by madmen who, armed with high-powered rifles and abundant ammunition, kill as many as they can.

It had become a bit more personal because our company underwent “active shooter” training, with instructors informing us of our choices to “run, hide or fight” if a killer arrives at our New London offices.

Not a happy thought.

So, this week, I offer something completely different. Things are not that bad. I’m talking big picture; globally. While you may be watching disasters, famines and health crises on your TV screens and smartphones — because such is news — the reality is the world is a much better place than it was not long ago.

I was reminded of this recently when reading an article in the latest edition of Reason by Ronald Bailey, the magazine’s science correspondent. His point was that despite the perceptions of many, these are not the glory days for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse — Death, Famine, Pestilence and War.

Human nature being what it is, folks tend to think things have never been this bad when, in many ways, they have never been this good.

Take war, the world has not had a big one in 75 years, since the end of World War II. Local wars have killed thousands and displaced millions, each death a tragedy, but global institutions such as the United Nations and NATO have held, preventing war from again spilling across the planet. Europe has been at peace for the longest stretch in its history.

Thanks to science, medicine and improved food production and distribution, people are living much longer. Bailey notes that demographers estimate that in 16th-century England, 60 percent of children died before age 16. By 1820 things had not improved all that much, with average life expectancy hovering around 30.

Today in the United States the infant mortality rate is 5.9 per 1,000 births, while in the United Kingdom it is 3.8 (tell me again why national health care would be so awful?).

Average life expectancy for Americans is 78.7 years, which is impressive by historic numbers but has actually dropped slightly the past couple of years and trails many other developed nations. Analysis continues, but increased substance abuse and resulting premature deaths appear the likely cause.

Worldwide, the average life expectancy is 71.5 years (68 years for males and nearly 73 females), according to the United Nations.

A big factor in people living longer is the eradication of diseases such as smallpox, which decimated populations in the past, and great strides in controlling other sicknesses. Cancer may seem like the modern plague, but one big reason we see more of it is because people live longer to develop it. Medicine is dramatically improving the ability to successfully treat it.

According to the World Health Organization, at least 10 million deaths were prevented worldwide in the first five years of this decade because of the availability of vaccines and another 1.5 million deaths could be avoided if vaccines were more readily available in poorer nations. Remember those numbers the next time some irrational anti-vaccine advocate tries to paint vaccines as bad.

Could things go south in a hurry? You bet. The world is filled with nuclear weapons. A decline in liberal democracies could invite renewed conflict. Climate change, declining natural resources and an exploding global population will present difficult challenges.

Things could be better. But for perspective’s sake, it is sometimes worthwhile to recall that things have been far worse.

    There may not have been a WWII if the Russian could have made a stand in the early part of Barbarossa. It is that incompetence that cost millions their lives.

    You are historically challenged.
    But that is alright.

    Duncan, he is more then “challenged”. Maybe brainwashed is a better term, like so many Americans these days who are being prepared for a big war. Sooner or later it will come home to America.

    makatoo, I am a highly respected expert on the the war on the Eastern Front, and know far more about the matter than you ever will. And Incompetence. I am also an expert on that as well. My own incompetence has not only ruined my own miserable life, but also this entire discussion area. You, on the other hand, are just a stupid old man suffering from dementia, that collects welfare in some 3rd world shit-hole that is deep in overshoot.

    Not a very noble people, as German women know all too well. Predators, liars. Stupid Brexit British are walking straight into their own final demise, while they keep deluding themselves on history and their US “buddies”.

    Thank God, China and post-communist Russia exist. It’s probably going to be bloodier than WW1 and WW2 combined.

    “There may not have been a WWII if the Russian could have made a stand in the early part of Barbarossa. It is that incompetence that cost millions their lives.”

    OMG, empire dave, the nail in the coffin of the white race himself, is having a go at splaining history for us.

    Again suggesting that Germany was assaulting “peace-loving USSR” out of the blue. And if only the Soviets had been “more competent”, good ol noble USA would not have been forced to intervene on the side of the “good guys” (the USSR) and could have continued to do what they prefer: attending the cows in the prairy.

    The truth is that the US declared war on Germany as early as 1933:

    https://images.app.goo.gl/tJKzzmKA4hSVP6uK9

    …because they knew they were strong enough to set up a world empire.

    When Germany started Barbarossa, it was an act of pure desperation, because they knew if they would not deal the first blow, they would be overrun by the USSR, that was in a state of full mobilization, against the terms of the non-agression agreement.

    Europe was intentionally destroyed by the US and USSR, who conspired as of 1933 and were enabled by the British, who opened the door for them, because they cannot let go of their 500 years old “splendid isolation” strategy, a strategy that in geopolitical terms made the British the biggest losers of them all, toppling from #1 to #6 position.

    And the tragedy is that under BoJo-Fromage, they would readily do it again tomorrow, as the junior of the US:

    Anglos exist to carry their kiken oligarch owners to planetary rule.

    According to said owners themselves, the kosher One World Project is going to fail, thank God:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2019/01/07/the-good-news-zog-is-dying/

    The Anglo has done his job, the Anglo has failed. The Anglo can go. The self-identifying Europeans among them may have a second lease on life, the rest can “Brasilianise”, never to be heard of again.

    Bye-bye und auf niemals Wiedersehen!

    “The German Army Was Better Than Allies”

    After completing an exhaustive analysis of archival records, Britain’s pre-eminent WW II historian, Max Hastings and the US Army War College, wrote in the attached Washington Post article, “On a man for man basis, German ground soldiers consistently inflicted casualties at about a 50 percent higher rate than they incurred from the opposing British and American troops under all circumstances (emphasis in original). This was true when they were attacking and when they were defending, when they had a local numerical superiority and when, as was usually the case, they were outnumbered, when they had air superiority and when they did not, when they won and when they lost.”

    “Against the Russians, German and allied Finnish forces inflicted a mortality rate of an almost unimaginable 1.950%. In other words, the Russians incurred on average 19.50 battlefield deaths for every one (1) German/Finnish KIA.”

    “The inescapable truth is that Hitler’s Wehrmacht was the outstanding fighting force of World War II, one of the greatest in history. For many years after 1945, this seemed painful to concede publicly.” It still is for most.

    “The Iranians sunk Carter also.”

    It was a collaborative effort. During the campaign, the Reagan team conspired with the Iranians not to release the hostages until Reagan was sworn in. The Iranians upheld their part of the bargain and in exchange the Reagan administration rewarded Iran with the secretive sale of US military hardware in direct violation of US law (i.e. Arms for Hostages Scandal).

    The fact that Davytard here, believes that the Washingdum Compost Jewspaper, is a ‘liberal’ rag, is definitive proof that he belongs in a mental institution, and not running around un-supervised where might, potentially come into contact with other humans.

    Of course, we’ve been saying that years.

    Forgot to mention: The above courtesy of Cloggie (I think).

    Yes, I posted it here first. As Anonymouse correctly says, comes from a jewish source.

    Could be interpreted as a kosher-note-to-self to not overestimate the US military options. The US actually “fell into planetary pole position” in 1945, “fell with the nose in the butter”, as the Dutch saying goes…

    https://www.tegelspreuken.nl/gezegdes/met-neus.html

    …mostly thanks to the clash of the two true giants of the white race: Germany and Russia, creating a vacuum the US stepped in.

    If WW3 will be what I think it is going to be, namely a soccer match between Anglosphere and Eurasia, the US empire stands no chance. Nobody can use nukes anyway. MAD still applies. The US will be thrown back entirely onto their continent.

    The only big question mark will be if white Americans will use the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and motivate themselves to distance themselves from Washington or that they (and their British subsidiaries) will volunteer to roll over and endure USSR-2.0-of-color for a century or so, Orwell’s Oceania.

    N.B. to the defense of the new president of the EU commission, Ursula von der Leyen, or “Flinten-Uschi” as she is known in Germany, as she is defense minister (doing a lousy job), at least:

    – has 7 blond children (!)
    – wants an EU army

    The latter is probably the reason Macron promoted her as a solution.

    Bravo Uschi!

    The Supreme Court is a Leftist enforcement tool.  In other words, an anti-White enforcement mechanism driven by an obsession to make its cruelty appear virtuous.  The members clothe themselves in quasi-religious robes to make the cringing masses think they are gods.  But behind the curtain, the demogogic psychopathy of a crone like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the cloying sanctimony of a Chief Justice such as John G. Roberts, Jr., the vicious hatred toward Whites of Spicess Sonia Sotomayor and Jewess Elena Kagan, the pantywaist character of White token Brett M. Kavanaugh, and the “progressive” dementia of the rest, completely vitiate the justice the elites pretend to embody.

    In the minds of this dictatorial junta, unelected and chosen by self-seeking senatorial lawyers, the United States must become a dysgenic mudpie in order to glorify the absolutist sludge at the top.  The future of homo sapiens means no more to them than it does to the oligarchs (mainly Yid) controlling the bribe-ocracy.  They know nothing about evolution and regard any mention of it as cause for a prison sentence.

    Thus, it is impossible that any serious judicial decision will save Yankeeland from being overwhelmed by a tsunami of ThirdWorld fecal slime.  This, of course, is quite in agreement with the corrupt Democrats who rule most of the nation’s large cities, even now turning them into snake pits of disease, crime, narcotic poisons, and insanity.  The only aim of the Supreme Court, the media, and the oligarchs is to extinguish the White man as a race and enrich the governmental demigods in the process.  This is obvious to every normal White who retains any sense of his ancestry and culture whatsoever.

    Thus we can only welcome the coming demise of the United States and all of its stupidity and criminality.  The end of this vicious organism is long overdue.

    cloggo, I really wish we could keep track of how many times you do history revisions here. You really are amazing at the constant long winded extremist chauvinistic agenda sucking. cloggo feelings are hurt because his natzies got their ass handed to them. He himself knows his little postage stamp country was walked over both ways and subject to famine. The hurt pride is now his battle call for history revisions and white racism. The facts remain that if Russia would not have fallen apart once invaded by the natzies the mass death of W2 would have been halted. Where could the megalomaniac have gone without a diminished Russia? It could have been a stalemate on the eastern front and the rest of Europe.

    Who cares they lost the war. This is what happens to great militaries when leadership goes bad. Just look at the results the US is experiencing in Afghanistan. There is definitely a high kill ratio.

    Come on makato, one liners don’t mean shit. You are a washed up senile old man and that rebut above shows why. You have nothing to say anymore with much legitimacy. You constant extremist anti-American agenda is stale. Who reads the copy and paste shit except other worn out agenda sucking schmucks.

I may be a dumbass american, but I am living the american dumbass dream. Acting like king shit of turd island, while constantly talking down to my betters and out my ass on the internet.

    The problem with Germans and (post war) Americans is they rely too much on the ideology of the individual. The Germans were better fighters. So what. The Vikings were better fighters than the Saxons. So what. The Americans are better fighters than the Russians and the jihadists. So what. The British were better fighters than the Boers. So what. Who wins a war is not whoes the better fighter. Who wins a war is the side that fights until the opponent either can’t fight, or gives up. Soon the EUSSR will break with the UK, throw NATO into the skip of history, it will complete Nord stream 2, and with Russia as a full OPEC member now, overthrow the dollar and with it end the New American Century. To do this however it will have to agree to two things. 1. Join the Belt and Road initiative 2. Submit to Saudi Arabias islamic agenda. The EUSSR has offically teamed up with the banksters in the most public move it has ever made with IMF members being offered jobs leading Europe, with Macron (an employee of the Rothschilds) and Banksters joining up to back the socialist collectivist agenda to turn all people into tools for extracting interest and money. The UK-US naturally does not want to back this, because obviously they wont be in control of it. With the possibility the EUSSR will be as undemocratic as it’s Red Predecessor then prospect of an Iron Curtain decending once again over Europe is very real. England has many times faced down thugs in Europe, from Pope’s to King-Emperors, Sun-Kings to Chancellors and Furers, the English have faced down bullies. Now Europe is revealing itself as the France-Germany show and many smaller nations risk being swallowed up. To ensure this happens the Banksters have filled up each country with as many 3rd worlders as it could to ensure it can play each community off the other when the time comes. Watch out for civil war in Europe, the birth of a new communist totalitarian agenda.

    You brought up the subject first, pall, with your ramblings over Barbarossa.

    I hardly ever bring up WW2, UNLESS somebody tries to insert the usual falsehoods again.

    You come to mind.

    Low-caps joe mutters:

    The problem with Germans and (post war) Americans is they rely too much on the ideology of the individual.

    The problem with the British is, that although they no doubt ARE a great European nation, on par with the likes of Germany, France and Italy, they refuse to recognize themselves as such and, backed up by their island geography, think they can afford to declare themselves the enemy of continental Europe and the white race in general, like they have done of the past 500 years. Uncle Schmull btw loved that attitude, because it opened the door for him in 1939 to set us up against each other, so he could rake in the European loot, until today.

    Don’t take it from me, I might be a natzi, that is everything the ADL and SPLC have warned you against. Take it from your own Canadian subsidiary:

    https://www.eurocanadian.ca/2019/05/britain-started-wwi-and-wwii-and-both-times-blamed-germany.html

    “Britain Started WWI And WWII And Both Times Blamed Germany”

    Exactly right.

    The British are simply unable to change course (that is change geopolitical grand strategy) and avoid the upcoming class with the Eurasian iceberg, although expect typical superb British humor to accompany their own demise (heard from the Titanic cocktail bar: “I ordered ice but this is ridiculous”)

    The German new European commission head Ursula von der Leyen openly wants a United States of Europe.

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9422223/ursula-von-der-leyen-european-commission-president/

    I think that is a bridge too far, I would prefer a lighter, Putinesque continental European confederation, Europe of the Fatherlands, a construct based on the analogy of the Eurovision songfestival or European soccer cups: you can still compete with other nations and cheer for your club or hope that your singing poofter wins…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eztx7Wr8PtE

    …and wave your flag, as long as it is understood that you do so within a European framework.

    But then again, I am a nobody, where she is president.

    To make a long story short: you are well-advised to rethink your grand strategy, because your surroundings, or may I say Umfeld, has changed. Your attitude ruined your empire in 1945, it may this time ruin your entire country. A Versailles 2.0 could this time be applied to you if you make us really angry.

    “BORIS UNMUZZLED: In an exclusive interview, Johnson tells the Mail it would be HIM – not Carrie – calling the shots at No10, the secret behind his new look and the unlikely heroes that have inspired his bid to become PM”

    This might as well interpreted as a euphemism to signal that Boris and Carrie have split up, but agreed among themselves to keep this a “secret” until BoJo has raked in the premiership. Then he will “reveal” that unfortunately the relationship didn’t work out after all.

    Carrie Symonds meanwhile has found a new full-time career in fighting plastic, very far away from conservative campaigning:

    https://twitter.com/carriesymonds

    Not a hint that she still has a liaison with BoJo. The silence is deafening. The press doesn’t cross the line and plays along and doesn’t suggest the obvious.

    “Maduro’s iron fist: Venezuelan dictator shows off his military might with a huge military parade on independence day as the UN says his ‘death squads’ have executed 5,300 people in a YEAR”

    Translation: the US attempt at regime-change in Caracas failed miserably. Another victory for Russia-China, now deep in Monroe-territory.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7216475/Boris-says-gaffes-GOOD-thing-claims-sacrificed-RICH.html

    “Boris Johnson demands immigrants UK learn English because there are ‘too many parts of the country where it is not the first language’…as he praises Jewish and Bangladeshi refugees for ‘buying in to our national culture'”

    New York-born BoJo, with Russian-Turkish-Jewish roots, one walking melting-pot himself and hence is absolutely no continental European style soft-racialist populist, keeps hammering on the “integration anvil”. Just study the fate of Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Ukraine, Iraq, Syria or USSR (all fairly recent events) to know how this is going to end.

    But of all European countries, Britain is the least racialist of them all, a direct consequence of having owned the largest (territorial) empire in world history.
