Cosmopolitan Balkanization in the Savvy Smartphone Age

All right YouTube, let’s do a little “Phil by the Dashboard Light .” Tip of the cap to Alex, I hope you don’t hate me for that one.

But I had an idea this morning called “Cosmo-Balkanization,” which I think is happening or going to happen in this country soon. And the thought is this: So with the likes of Ocasio-Cortez being touted as the new face of the Democratic party… You know, Hispanic immigrant or child of immigrants, supplanting old white male Democrat politicians, that’s going to be the future, they say.

But I think it’s going to be further than that, because of some anecdotes and experiences I’ve got to relate encountering immigrants or children of immigrants here in Los Angeles.

The first one is a Ukrainian woman that I met over the summer. Has an American boyfriend but she’s from the Ukraine, and we were out drinking, talking, getting to know each other, and I guess later in the evening the topic of immigration came up, and my thoughts were we need to slow it down, potentially go back to a 1924, “let’s close the borders down for a while, there’s just too many new people here.”

And I think the latest news story saying that sixty million people don’t speak English at home, that’s not a recipe for a, you know, if not homogeneous, sort of country on the same page with itself. So I told her, yeah, I think we should slow it down.

And herself, only coming here recently, disagreed with that. And one of her points was the fact that because I came from the East Coast, I’m from the DC area, but now I live in California. And because I did that, people should be able to come here too. And I had to explain, well no, because I’m moving within the borders of my own country. I’m not going to Canada. I’m not going to Chile. So what I sensed from her was a sense of entitlement, that she should be here, everyone should be here, everyone should go where they want to go.

And in theory that’s a nice concept, this migration notion that everyone gets to wander around. But there’s simply a capacity for… logistical capacities for being able to stay somewhere. Toilets, furnishings, plumbing capacity, sewage systems, food… trucking in the food. All this stuff, no one thinks about that stuff.

And in fact about a year ago or so I had an Uber driver, I’m not sure where he was from, but he was Jewish and there was some sort of foreign, slight foreign tongue to him. And we were talking about stuff and the concept of migrants, immigration came up, and again, what’s the capacity? When do we shut it off? And his thoughts were, well, if you have the room, the space, or the extra money, the extra food, just let ’em in. And again, should that really be the threshold? “Oh well, I have $5 in my pocket. I have to give this to somebody else now.”

No consideration for the fact of what if I’m saving up for a new truck for work? Or I’m saving up for a gift for my child? No, it’s if you have this dollar now you have to give it to somebody else who’s less fortunate or shows up saying they need it. And that is no way to long-term run a society or a family or a business, because that doesn’t, that’s so short-sighted, doesn’t think about the consequences. And if it’s simply a matter of heartstrings, sad images, “I need,” nothing will ever progress with great leaps forward, of inventions, breakthroughs, art.

You know, if someone’s going to be a great violinist, a classical composer, that doesn’t happen overnight. They need a “safe space,” if you will, for many years. To have the quiet space physically so that their mind and body can work together to to learn the instrument and learn the history and to become a great player.

So stepping back to what I was saying earlier about entitlement for foreigners moving in here, and Cosmo-Balkanization. Well, the “cosmo” comes from cosmopolitanism, and I think what we’re seeing because of smartphones is that people around the world have been empowered in a way that was never possible before.

And I think it’s a very interesting experiment, an anthropological science experiment that we’re all part of. Because some of the work that I do in my business, you know, they hire illegal laborers from Central and South America. And I see these guys at their lunch breaks playing with their phones, and I think it’s pretty fascinating.

What is a person from a very small impoverished town in Mexico, who’s now in Los Angeles with a smartphone. What is he getting up to? What is he looking at what? What is he exploring? What is he putting his mind into? Is it just video games or is he trying to learn history?

And then what at what websites, what news sites target first-generation, straight-out-of-the-field immigrants in 2018? What kind of information are they putting in their heads? Is it a matter of indoctrination? Is it entertainment, like Univision with the big-breasted sitcoms?

So anyway in previous generations I think you would have more humble, grateful immigrants. But now because everyone is sort of a “global citizen,” everyone’s hearing the same music, seeing the same movies, we’ve got these smartphones, yeah you just feel like, “I’m here. I can be here. I’m not going to be thankful to this new country.”

And that’s where we’re seeing politically on the news people who’ve been here for less than five, ten, fifteen, twenty years screaming in the streets about Brett Kavanaugh or “white males.” And I guess I’m trying to posit, this is how it happened. This is how it’s happening, and how it’s only going to get worse.

And people have been enabled to be ungrateful because it pushes at an agenda. Particularly politically it’s for the Democrats’ agenda. People are being enabled to be ungrateful because they’re actually pawns in a larger political game. Demographic change, electoral change. All in all, this is terrible for any country that would want to stay intact, and have a sense of identity.

You know, you watch a movie from the late 80s, even some comedy like “The Naked Gun,” and you’re just like, that world is gone. That America is completely gone. And am I allowed, is anyone allowed to lament the fact that the America of their childhood really is gone? Not just a matter of, “I was a boy and now I’m a man, and I’m sad.” No, that world is completely gone, and because I’m a “straight white male,” I’m supposed to shut up and not lament.

Anyway, the future that I see is basically more Balkanization, more special interests, more in-group preference getting a toehold politically. And then the question is, do the new groups that have power, whether it’s Somalis up in Minnesota, or maybe Ukrainians here in LA, Chinese, Korean, Mexicans everywhere… Are they going to really buy in to the principles of the Founding Fathers?

And also something I heard Luke Ford discuss with Jim Goad in an interview sometime in the last year. Luke Ford is an Australian, grew up Christian, converted to Judaism because of Dennis Prager’s radio show here in Los Angeles.

His thoughts are, Northern European culture is the only culture to put principles over tribe, because to survive those harsh winters up in Scandinavia, say, you had to agree on ideas so everyone could survive. Whereas other cultures were always getting marched on and invaded through. The Middle East, Italy, Africa. So tribal/family bonds were more important than principles and ideas.

So the question is, here in America can all these people from more tribal cultures—Asia, Latin America, Africa—can they give up those tribal/family agendas, or loyalties, and really believe in ideas and principles? And maybe that’s what the whole “living, breathing Constitution” versus “strict interpretation” comes from.

So that’s about as far as I’m gonna go with those thoughts right now. I’m very fascinated by it. I don’t know if it bodes well for the future, but you know, if we see… People are talking civil war, that’s one of the new memes, but maybe there are more nuanced changes coming up beyond just outright violence. And if you know about it, if you can if you can visualize it, maybe you can help react to it, if not influence it.

So thanks for listening. My third novel, the first book in a new series actually, is coming out in mid-October. I’ll be making some videos about that pretty soon. I’m very excited! Check my website PhilipWyeth.com subscribe to this channel.

America is Just a Place Where People Live

This is Philip Wyeth. There is a malaise in the air across America. We are a distinct personality type finding ourselves without a homeland. The time in which we grew up is over and gone, and now the land on which we were born is being razed and resculpted.

The world’s poorest and the world’s richest squeeze us from both sides. Then the mind-controlling media tell us how wonderful it is to be a taxi driver or hotel owner, using fancy terms like Uber and Airbnb.

Where are the children of Babe Ruth, Motown, Francis Ford Coppola, and classic rock lore supposed to go in an era when assimilation means the children of foreigners who skipped the line are indoctrinated by childless white Leftist professors into ingratitude and being angry at the country where they want to live?

Is America only desirable because we have toilets and electricity and mostly peaceful streets? Those of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s wanted to make ourselves great, but have been hamstrung by the complete lack of noblesse oblige by our elites.

Economic malfeasance and betrayal on every level have made saving money a losing proposition, and homeownership as a concept almost a human right, but in actuality has become an arms race leading to impossible prices.

Seventeen years of demoralizing and expensive wars all based on highly dubious allegations. The wholesale dismantling of our manufacturing base, while politicians talk on TV about supporting “working families.” Schools so out of touch that we import workers to do high-paying tech jobs.

Now a divided population is licking its chops as if some sort of internal conflict is inevitable.

Were all these policies and misadventures worth it if at the end of the day we have a device in our pocket that can play any song we want, but we cannot communicate with our next door neighbor, either because of a language or political divide?

The America I grew up in was a place that fostered me to be great. It had a distinct identity and a culture that sizzled with creative energy. Now this country is a playpen for the world’s richest to buy up real estate. We’re told it’s a “human right” for the world’s poorest to homestead in an endless stream, using any number of insidious justifications.

And yet people scratch their heads why those of us who were already here fall into despair, smoking meth, committing suicide. It’s because we have the eyes to see that in the course of just one generation the United States has ceased to be the country where an idea was protected and nurtured, to sprout wings through invention, art, freedom of thought and speech.

Now, as the melting pot begins to smell more like a chamber pot, it appears to me that America is just a place where people live. And if that’s the case, and we are told we don’t have a distinct identity like Japan or India, who will take in our mass of anachronistic spiritual refugees?

Or are we expected to quietly be marched into the ghettos of silence, because our history and opinions offend those whose own home countries have far fewer rights than the ones they twist and grandstand upon to use against us?

The phalanx of grievance and entitlement is converging upon good, everyday Americans. All we wanted to do was enjoy life and have families, but it turns out we owe the entire population of the world everything. Literally everything.

We will be hounded by government, self-loathing Leftists, sad media images to manipulate our emotions, and ultimately the Democrats’ army of imported voters.

But to even observe and make predictions is called “hate,” because our globalist overlords have a long-term plan for the world. A total-surveillance heaven without borders or war, because we’re all the same skin tone, have the same opinion, and obediently apply for a permit to purchase a kitchen knife.

But it’s all just part and parcel of being a good global citizen.

I Was Right. Even Murder Can’t Cure Leftist Brainwashing

This is Philip Wyeth here to say that I was right. I was spot-on in my characterization of a social justice warrior, and I’ll tell you why.

I’m sure you’ve seen the news story about Mollie Tibbetts getting killed by an illegal alien. And we just saw one of her relatives said, “Please remember evil comes in every color.” This is proof of how brainwashed liberals, even at the time of their own relative being murdered, play a mental game to get away from the feeling of bloodlust.

And I’ll relate a personal anecdote to you as well. A couple months ago I attended the memorial service for a murdered relative of one of my in-laws, and at that ceremony I met a female relative who lives in LA. So we agreed to get together, and this was about a month later we got together, and at one point I asked her how her mother—a close relation of the murdered man—was handling things, because at the memorial service she broke down.

And this is what she told me. Nothing to do about how her mom was recovering, but simply that an accomplice after the fact, who was paid by the murderers to clean up the crime scene, was caught, pled guilty and got two years in prison. And she said, “Wow, two years in prison is sure a long time for someone who wasn’t involved in the crime.”

What?! What about bloodlust? What about anger? What about rage? Even if you’re fine with the person going to jail as opposed to you beating them up or killing them, if anybody was involved with the murder of one of my friends or relatives… You have to be angry, you have to be furious. You can’t think about, in this case she said privilege, she did the mental abacus thing and talked about some court case where a white guy raped a college student and only got six months.

Cherry-picking to fill her liberal narrative. So, why was I right? I’m gonna read you an excerpt from “Reparations USA,” a book I wrote summer of 2017, and in this chapter I break apart the mindset of the social justice warrior, in the case of my character Kate Donohugh. Here are several short excerpts:

“…an unsparing inner voice that turned making even routine decisions into a statistical analysis ritual, which involved going down a mental checklist to consider how anything she was about to do might affect someone else less fortunate than her.

“Kate tangled her mind in knots trying to think of new ways she could eradicate her privilege. But now she was beginning to suspect that no matter what selfless act she performed, there would always be something else to account for. And how could you sleep peacefully, let alone function, when the goalposts kept moving?

“What virtuous acts would serve to fully exorcise the guilt she now felt for passing decades of her life blind to the thousand micro-advantages she had taken for granted?”

And that’s it. That is where we are. You saw the story last week about those cyclists who, to prove people are good, went and rode their bike all over the world and got killed in a dangerous country. It may be that there’s no reasoning with people like this, if they’re so far gone, having succumbed to the brainwashing of the mainstream media, universities, public schools, Hollywood.

On the one hand you want to sympathize with them, empathize with them, try to reach out a hand to pull them back from the brink. But with this kind of pathological altruism maybe you just need to step back and save yourself, protect your family.

Because these people are so separated from what it means to be a human, and to have the passion and the love to actually stand up for your people when they’re being killed… Or you’re being killed yourself! There’s nothing we can do.

So I would hope that you would support me as an author, because I clearly have my finger on the pulse of something going on in society. The first book, “Reparations USA,” is free on platforms like Barnes & Noble and iTunes, only $0.99 as an e-book on Amazon. And the second book “Reparations Mind” is available on all these platforms. Paperback and e-book on
Amazon for both books.

I’m currently working on the third book right now, it could possibly be a four book series. So help me out and we’ll stick together as the crazy election season approaches. Thanks for listening.

Do Guatemalans Dream of the Gettysburg Address?

This is Philip Wyeth. Another Philip, one much more famous than me, once asked, “Do androids dream of electric sheep?” I’m going to paraphrase Philip K. Dick’s question to talk about the challenges we face after having taken in so many “new Americans” over the past twenty years.

Do Armenian immigrants learn about the old Jim Crow laws? Will Guatemalans from the migrant caravan study the Gettysburg Address? Can you convince an Indian working in Silicon Valley to take interest in the American Indian Wars?

This all may sound like hyperbole, or me trying to be cute, but what I’m driving at is the stark difference between America’s past and its future. A few days ago I dropped in at the local cigar shop to relax and get some writing done. Some regulars dropped in and started talking politics—at times things got heated, but these guys all know each other and honestly this is the kind of healthy debate I think people are starved for now that we only talk to each other through apps on our devices.

Most of the group was anti-Trump—not shocking since we’re in Los Angeles—but a couple of the guys were conservative and did their best to fend off the sometimes haughty questions the liberals were asking.

But the most interesting dynamic for me, and which leads back to the beginning of this talk, was a Jewish man in his seventies and a black man who was in his fifties or sixties. They both see the world through the prism of 1960s civil rights activism, and America’s legacy of slavery and racial discrimination.

There’s nothing wrong with that viewpoint in and of itself, but what they seem to miss is that so much has changed in just this century, that the old narratives don’t hold up anymore. Consider how these three concepts embody the change:

-The massive immigration with seemingly no rhyme or reason, and no consideration for the implications of assimilation or lack thereof, as well as demographic change. As Ann Coulter once pointed out to an audience of Latino students, who were not happy to hear her say it—America up until recently was once not multi-cultural, but biracial.

-Point two, a nationwide loss of wealth due to deindustrialization and several market collapses—with the surreal caveat being that instead of bread lines we all get to drink craft beer and eat organic food.

-And third, decentralization of narratives due to the internet. On the negative side is the disintegration of a national storyline and identity, but up for grabs is a more truthful tale, and perhaps some idealistic results—like internet flashmobs being able to prevent wars based on false pretenses.

So these old timers at the cigar shop, they don’t know about memes. They advocate for all kinds of immigration because they think it will help defeat lingering white racism—but at what point does this dilute the fabric of the country? They want one thing—racial justice—but the tools they’re using—massive immigration—could give us all an existential crisis.

Having lived in Los Angeles for many years and met people from all over the world—some I even do business with, so don’t try and pigeonhole me, please—but I can tell you that their primary motivation for coming here is to get away from repressive regimes or extreme poverty. Yes, they come here for a better life, as the talking point goes, but Americans on both sides of the aisle are deluding themselves if they think that many immigrants will study up on the Federalist Papers or the Dred Scott decision.

Maybe these things shouldn’t be on their radar, who knows? The great experiment of high-speed internet and touchscreens is what’s going on right now. Putting smartphones into the hands of people in the Third World can be like a world warp for their communities, and do far more than any “feed the children” infomercial on TV. Maybe it’s better if we’re all mentally free to take part in this technology free-for-all, without all the baggage or being tethered to the latest handful of new Abe Lincoln biographies.

But if we’re forced to abdicate not only our history but our culture, what is the point of our lives? To provide housing and plumbing to people from other countries? To publicly flagellate ourselves by virtue signaling on social media because our ancestors were bad?

Where do our supposed obligations end, and do the new Americans have any of their own? When does the brazenness of caravan migrants, whose supporters always find a way to rationalize people cutting in front of other would-be legal immigrants—when does this sense of entitlement give way to gratitude?

Or is the true sentiment, unspoken and hidden deep inside the hearts of everyone who’d rather kick in the door rather than knock, is it that the sins of the past are so great that America’s residents get no say? That the ledger of our historical guilt can only be evened out through pandering, confiscation, and eviction?

The most troubling aspect of all is that the Left is willing to drown out their opponents under a torrent of shame just because you disagree with them. They’ll get your account suspended, dox you, whatever it takes to shut you up. Why? Because deep in their hearts they fear being such an object of ridicule, standing alone in the public square taking abuse for a truly held belief.

Watch the 1970 Italian film The Conformist for a taste of the inner hell that progressive types who stand for nothing live and then unleash onto others.

Fortunately, today’s forecast only calls for Tweet-storms after one of them gets triggered, as just happened when a beautiful girl joyfully wore a Chinese dress to her high school prom—which of course was cultural appropriation.

How can all of this end peacefully, when on the one hand conservatives are forced to bake cakes that go against their beliefs, but also have no recourse when a private social media company deletes their account? The Left’s unholy alliance of aggression and hypocrisy is in fact creating the monsters they protest against, by breeding resentment in the hearts of good people who, while maybe not be as savvy as they are, only want to live quietly without being lectured to and sued for thoughtcrimes.

All I can do as a person with some life experience and the ability to distill ideas is to share my insights before things really get out of hand. Because conservatives have a lot of two things—patience and guns—and I have too many friends on both sides of the aisle to ever want to see our country descend into civil war.

The 3D Crusade: How Europeans Might Take Their Countries Back

This is Philip Wyeth. Today’s topic could be considered controversial. That is, if a humorous hypothesis can trigger progressives into running to Big Brother to protect their feelings. So let me preface by stressing this distinction: Prediction is not necessarily endorsement. And foresight should not be interpreted as advocacy or incitement.

That said, if something like what I’m about to mull over actually happens, we should remember that it was a predictable reaction provoked by central planning elitists who have no loyalty to their own people. Hubris has been mistaken for vision, and in refusing to protect the gates have put their nations’ children in danger.

So here goes. Multiculturalism in Europe is dying. Or should I say, multiculturalism is killing? The mainstream media would love to completely ignore the failure of this grand experiment which they implicitly endorse—even as they’re forced to cover the most gruesome mile markers of the population importation scheme. Stabbings, bombings, and truck attacks are becoming all too common across the continent.

But beyond the headlines, it’s been left to independent contrarians to put the underlying pieces together, and then present the politically incorrect verdict in obscure corners of social media. These outliers are then insulted, called crackpots, accused of hate speech, and too frequently find that their social media accounts have been sent down the memory hole without warning.

But what if someday in the near future, one of these countries being overrun by refugees and immigrants who won’t assimilate, what if the native-born ethnic population puts its foot down and says no more? What if they see one too many arsons or rapes or trash piles on the street, and as a group say no to the politicians who have sold out their borders and culture?

On that day people in England or Sweden or Germany, who have been disarmed by the nanny state, create weapons with 3D printers and take the fight to people who came not to work or even adopt a “when in Rome” attitude, but simply moved in to take advantage of the kitchen sinks, the paved roads, and free medical treatment.

Yes, the idea of Europeans using knives printed in their national colors to reclaim streets and parks clogged by praying Muslims might be a bit too fanciful—sounding almost like a modern-day Rudyard Kupling screed—but the lawlessness and acid attacks in London alone should be a real wake-up call that the forced Utopia isn’t blooming, and the slow-burn status quo can’t hold indefinitely.

Will young Swedes—whose uncles created one of the fiercest and most influential heavy metal sub-genres of all time, Swedish Death Metal—will they have the courage to assert their Viking heritage by printing out golden broadswords and marching into areas the police have deemed no-go zones?

Will Italian sunbathers, when another boatload of fighting-age African men lands on the beach, put down their camera phones and protect the shores that previous generations knew instinctively to defend?

Will Germans ever shake off their post-World War Two guilt complex of being the world’s scapegoat, and proclaim that they have a right to life in the country that was built over many centuries?

Will Frenchmen, whose famous Parisian streets are now littered with mattresses and filth, will they quietly give in or remember that, Hollywood stereotypes be damned, they too were once great warriors?

The 3D Crusade. Perhaps a bit of folly best suited for a fairy tale or a poem. Or a Netflix movie about Generation Z gamers who discover that they can no longer walk freely in the streets that their great-grandfathers fought to defend. And using tactics learned in military video games, tapping into real-time CCTV feeds while communicating via headsets, the Asperger’s Army stealthily avenges bureaucratic betrayal in what goes down in history as the Memer’s Massacre.

So yes, that’s all probably too much of a stretch. But if you think people whose not-so-distant ancestors took over the whole world, will simply turn the other cheek forever when they have bloodlust baked into their DNA, I don’t think you know much about world history. Whether it’s garden tools or rifles donated by the Swiss, I don’t see how this all resolves itself peacefully.

So we’ll just have to see which of the opposing forces is stronger. Will the cucked-out legal system hold the native populations at bay long enough for Left-wing schools to indoctrinate the children of refugees, so that a snapshot of the future consists of monochrome godless socialists cheering on national soccer teams?

Or will we wake up one day soon to find that a well-coordinated underground of patriots has unleashed a version of pushback as depicted in the John Steinbeck novel “The Moon is Down”?
Because what’s good for Zimbabwe and South Africa surely applies to the homelands of other people too, right?

It’s going to be human nature pitted against the power of soy. Place your bets.
