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.

Liberal Hypocrisy in the Cold-Pressed Civil War

This is Philip Wyeth. The Left is caught up in an arms race of virtue signaling, which leads to contradictions, and in the end, they always eat their own. The latest example comes to us from Manhattan, New York, where parents at a school meeting were furious that 25% of spaces would be allotted to children whose test scores fell below normal admittance standards, but who are also disadvantaged minorities.

I’ll include the link to the video where some of these parents express their anger. At one point a principal named Henry Zymeck says, “There are kids that are tremendously disadvantaged. And to compare these students and say, ‘My already advantaged kid needs more advantage, they need to be kept away from those kids,’ is tremendously offensive to me.”

This is good stuff. The elite of the elite liberals, who lecture the rest of the country about how great their inclusive belief system is, now circling the wagons when their own enclave is forced to accept diversity quotas. I’m willing to bet that none of these people voted for Donald Trump, and there’s probably pictures of a few of them holding signs denouncing hate at one of the women’s marches.

Look, I’m not even against them here. They worked hard and paid top dollar to get their kids into a school where academic achievement levels are very high. But I will savor the fact that they’re getting a taste of their own medicine. Their beliefs about privilege and unfairness, which they’ve forced on everyone else under penalty of social shame—what a pity that their own safe space is now threatened because some of their own progressive fellow travelers took things to eleven without consulting them.

People on the Left get themselves and society in trouble because they won’t ever let things play out organically. They’ll use the excuse that the legacy of oppression is so massive that “we have to do something,” but maybe the destabilization and resentment their ideas create are actually a worse result.

Nowadays anyone who leans conservative gets painted as a grump, or the bad guy. But maybe we just have a more pragmatic outlook about human nature and how things operate in the real world.

So many Democrats suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome still have not made peace with their 2016 election loss, or come to understand why it happened. What they’re going to find out is that people on the Right, who have kept quiet during years and years of being mocked and demonized—we are done. Whether it’s in polite company or in the public square, liberals’ days of mouthing off with impunity are over.

And if you’re on the Left, you should be scared. Not of violence, but because all those years you spent patting yourself on the back for having the right opinions, which you looked at like, “We hold these truths to be self-evident”—your minds have atrophied!

Meanwhile we, while fending off your attacks, have had to develop strong arguments to justify our existence. I think we wouldn’t even feel the need to flash our teeth if you Leftists had been gracious in defeat. But instead you keep doubling down on the self-righteousness, and now you own so many sacred cows that you’re devouring each other on a weekly basis.

It’s Kanye West facing a backlash for asserting the right to his own opinion. It’s Joy Reid’s non-apology for something she wrote a long time ago, when it could be argued that the culture was much different. And it’s the two white lesbians who adopted a handful of black kids as props, only to drive them off a cliff.

It’s you on the Left who are the problem. You’re holier-than-thou hypocrites with an incomplete worldview. And you lack the humility to step down from the podium where you utter feel-good platitudes toward your friends, then put people you disagree with on the defense through dishonest rhetoric.

But get ready for the next big disappointment. You’re putting all your eggs in the basket that is the midterm elections this fall—but what if the Democrat resurgence doesn’t happen? What if your transient or imported voters don’t turn out enough to help you take back the House?
What if a dozen more of your high-profile allies fall into disgrace while you’re out there chasing your own tail, barking about Russia and Stormy Daniels?

Right now it feels like each half of the country thinks the other political party is days away from scandal, exposure, and arrests that will sink their cabal. So the question is, who’s delusional and who’s not?

Is it the bleeding hearts, who move to red states like locusts after the policies enacted based on their beliefs bankrupted and filled their hometowns with crime?

Or is it the conservatives, who were so disillusioned by the two-party politics during the Bush and Obama years, that they said screw it, let’s give this crude loudmouth Trump a chance? Because he may not act “presidential,” but at least you know where he stands.

This country is coming up on some major shifts. Today we’re living in what I call the Cold-pressed Civil War—where one person at a coffee shop sipping on a fair-trade latte lobs Twitter bombs at another customer, who’s drinking organic Yerba Matte and firing her own social media missiles right back.

But the peace isn’t going to hold forever. There’s too many conflicting narratives, talking points, and accusations flying around. Over the next two elections, if the Democrats don’t get what they want, they’re going to rage under the guise of replaying some 1960s activist fantasy. And if they win, they’ll only turn the screws tighter on identity politics and demonizing white people.

This is why they’re desperate to ban guns. Everything they want to do relies on force. It is not hyperbole to say that Leftism always leads to mass murder—whether the poster boy is a mustached Bolshevik holding a rifle, or a scrawny Portlander in black-rimmed glasses and striped v-neck t-shirt drinking soy milk.

Today’s totalitarian may not have the balls to kill you himself, but he’ll find an app for that in his brand new iPhone, I’m sure.
