Two interesting articles came out recently analyzing the social and behavioral origins of the situation in Europe.
The first, title ‘The Age Of The European Eloi’, was published by “Morgoth’s Review”.
The second is titled ‘
’, and was published by Diversity Macht Frei. It is a transcript of a discussion between three individuals (I am not sure who).
The fist article (the Eloi one) begins:
The first time I came across the comparison of modern European liberals with HG Well’s “Eloi” was in Mark Steyn’s book ”After America” and though I’ve grown to despise Steyn’s Neo Conservative, philo-Semitic, Constitution obsessed Americana, his analogy stands up very well. Well’s ”The Time Traveler” depicts humanity in a distant future which evolution has caused to split, one half becoming the docile, effeminate Eloi, plenty and comfort having molded them into a servile race of cattle lacking any will to survive whatsoever.
The Eloi, though normal-looking, indeed, very attractive European-looking humans, have become more like bonobos in their sociology. As the original book proclaims:
To adorn themselves with flowers, to dance, to sing in the sunlight; so much was left of the artistic spirit, and no more. Even that would fade in the end into a contented inactivity. We are kept keen on the grindstone of pain and necessity, and, it seemed to me, that here was that hateful grindstone broken at last!
The author proceeds to bring modern-day Europeans into the discussion.
From Article One:
Modern Europe is a place where a young White couple can head off for a weekend away and, while standing at the airport or train station, the young man can increasingly expect to look into his girlfriend’s eyes as an Islamic nail bomb rips her face off. If they manage to arrive at their romantic location there’s an even greater chance that he will be smacked around as Iraqis, Turks, Algerians, Moroccans and Somalians gang rape his girl.
The media probably won’t even bother reporting the rape, they will report the bombings but it hardly matters, the dominant response by the European public will be one of apathy. There will be no attempt to drag the political class or liberal media out on the streets and hang them, instead there will be digital ribbons on digital flags, hashtags on Twitter, sometime soon Samsung or Apple will begin offering a whole range of apps tailored toward mourning the victims of a terror attack.
But, as the article is showing, we have seen this before:
The most shocking characteristic of the Eloi is that they are completely indifferent to the suffering of their own kind. In Well’s novel a young woman falls into a fast flowing river and not one of the men attempts to save her, it’s just something which happens, when a Morlock batters an Eloi over the head and runs off with it the idea that they should put up a fight, defend themselves, is a non starter, it’s just the natural order of things. The allotted role of the Eloi is to sit with flowers in their hair, eat berries, have sex, and die violently.
This ties in directly with the second article, on Expecations Formation and Prejudice. Why do the Eloi react (or not react?) this way? Clearly it is dysgenic. But what is at the root of it? Enter the second article, mid-debate:
Owen: So you’re now arguing that prejudice has practical value, utility, rather than merely what we might call aesthetic value as a component of a people’s identity?
Isabel: Yes. And the dismantling of prejudice, as you describe it, really just means the totalitarian repression of its overt expression. It means sending people to prison for saying the wrong things, hounding them from their jobs and so on. It involves a loss of freedom, subjecting people to harm and fear. It is not cost-free. It injures human well-being.
Owen: I acknowledge that. But the benefits outweigh the costs, in my view.
Isabel: The benefits of prejudice outweigh its costs in my view.
They then segue into a discussion of the origins of this belief-system:
Gregor: Looking at the 20th century, we can see the intellectuals got it wrong, time after time. They were entranced by Communism, multiculturalism, state interventionism in the economy, the European Union. Each time the clever people made catastrophic misjudgements, the instincts of ordinary, unintellectual people acted as a restraining influence upon them.
So you have this bunch of intellectuals who alight on the idea that “People are all the same”. I mean really they’re just concerned about the social and economic unfairness within a specific society. Some people have to pay taxes. Some people are exempt. But rather than just focus on these specific grievances, they feel impelled to express their discontent in grandiose, universalistic terms. So “People are all the same” becomes this religious dogma that governs the society they help bring into being. And this dogma forms the basis of the multicultural experiment in Europe. “Even if the brown people coming in will have a few rough edges, after the first generation, they’ll be just like us, except for the colour of their skin”, said the multicultists. Because “People are all the same”, right? But we now know that isn’t true.
Owen: I honestly can’t believe this. In my view, the triumph over prejudice that we have seen in Europe over the last few decades is one of humanity’s greatest achievements. I find it incredible that obviously intelligent people such as you can see it as a bad thing.
Gregor: Owen, the jihad attacks we’re now seeing routinely, the “new normal” as they put it; the tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of British children who have been enslaved, raped and tortured by the new brown-skinned “Britons”; these are the practical results of your “triumph over prejudice”. Prejudice was the guard at the frontier. Prejudice was the sentinel on the wall. You took it away. With catastrophic consequences. This is what happens when your fine, philosophical abstractions collide with reality. And yet you cling to them even after the collision has taken place.
The issue of Islamic terrorism and how it is widely perceived is telling, according to the narrative Muslims are not an invading force which is slaughtering us, the Islamic terrorist is something amorphous and nondescript, it is a geopolitical issue which the Eloi don’t really understand, and anyway, if they dig too deep there’ll probably be some academic or writer telling them it’s the Eloi’s own fault. At any rate, when the bombs go off there’s no actual enemy to point at apart from ”terrorists” and so being blown up becomes a force of nature, like the girl falling into the river and drowning, the victims of Islamic terror are simply ”unlucky”. The Eloi take it for granted that this week the Eiffel Tower will be lit up in the colours of the Belgian flag, next week perhaps the German flag, or Swedish. It just depends on whose turn it is.
The Eloi worshipped a giant stature of ‘Morlock’ (origin of word is Moloch), and delivered sacrifices to it:
Mass Third World immigration is the Moloch of the European political class, they worship it, they obsess over it and they feed their own people to it.
Gregor: Anyone who had switched off this process of expectations formation would have been wiped out by evolution long ago.
The word ”Morlock” is derived from the Phoenician god associated with child sacrifice in the Bible ”Moloch” the word ”Eloi” is also found in the Bible, in the Gospel of Mark, Jesus yells out from the cross “Eloi Eloi lema sabachthani?”: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”.
Isabel: We’ve just had a few minor scrapes so far. The real collision is yet to come.
Will it ever dawn on the Eloi what their liberalism really is? will they ever get that jolt of lightning as the horror of reality hits them, will they ask:
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”.
