Part of what I think terrifies Jews– and this draws upon something yet another commenter once said at Vox Day– is that, left among themselves, they’ll sink into mediocrity. I think he’s right, although I’m not entirely sure what the exact mechanism is. Jews of genius have achieved greatness in white “gentile” genres– Mahler in the symphony, Kubrick in the cinema– but all the head-counting of Nobel laureates and Fields medalists cannot obscure the fact that European arts and sciences would get along fine without Jewish contributions. Though even Andrea Ostrov Letania would dispute this point, I submit that, in crucial regards, Jewish success in letters is overstated: Spinoza fan that I once was, I’m convinced he is only a pitiable Asperger’s case and an out-of-town tryout compared to Leibniz or Malebranche. And if Roth and Bellow are the best the American Jewish Novelist can produce, well– what are Jewish novelists compared to English girls? But it’s not white peoples’ job to create avenues for Jews to excel in– particularly if some of the “exceling” amounts to taking a big dump over what we’ve been doing and then nepotistically claiming a monopoly over it that shuts out native voices. It’s not exactly a coincidence that “Modern Art” is mostly something to talk about No doubt Tel Aviv is a thriving metropolis, and could thrive still further with a fresh influx of Jews abroad relocating themselves and their (legitimate) assets. But would I place bets on it usurping the cachet of Singapore or Hong Kong, or a whitopia London or Paris? Well, no. In any event: people like Podhoretz pere, who tells whites to miscegenate into stupidity and ugliness because otherwise something bad might happen to black people, and Podhoretz Normanson, who thinks America needs a billion immigrants, are the main problem in the West today and once that fount of hateful stupidity is shut off most of our other problems can be handled reasonably. Even relations with Israel– though those relations will no longer make the front page often, because in the cosmic scheme of things Israel, even if it houses every Jew on earth, is simply not that important.
