An ominous, but insightful post from 4chan on the 6 social trends an anon observed indicating the collapse of western society:
Observing the collapse of the West into Clown World, six sociological trends stand out above all others. Each of these trends has been deliberately engineered by the ruling class to make their subject populations weaker and easier to control. All of them involve promoting one set of behaviours and attitudes over another, to the detriment of the subject population.
The first trend is infantilisation.
Infantilisation involves keeping people in a state of helpless dependency even into adulthood. In particular, this involves inducing them to think and behave like adult children. Emblematic of this trend is the 40-year old collector of Star Wars figurines. Infantilised people are encouraged not to solve their own problems, but instead to tug the skirt of the local authority. This is also true of scientific disputes. Independent thought is strongly discouraged.
It’s essential here that people be kept ignorant about the true nature of reality. Instead of being informed accurately about the scientific nature of humankind and of the world, people are presented with a Disneyfied, Tellytubby version of affairs. It is never admitted that life is suffering and that the good guys die in the end just like the bad guys.
The second trend is feminisation.
This involves forcing women and feminine energy into male spaces. Anything traditionally masculine has to give way to feminine involvement. This trend is why one sees so much mainstream media decrying “not enough women in X” or praising “first woman in X”. All male spaces have to be broken open.
Today this can be seen most obviously in sport. The obsessive promotion of women’s sport has had the effect of removing an avenue for masculinity. Now there are even female referees and commentators in male games. The forcing of women into the military is a more extreme, if less obvious, example. The end result is a generation of feminised males unable to inspire any physical resistance.
The third trend is negrification.
It’s rare to see a white family in the mass media nowadays. A long-running series like Friends, without token diversity, would be impossible today. Much as children have been forced into adult spaces and females have been forced into male spaces, so too have non-whites been forced into white spaces. This is also accompanied by propaganda about “not enough non-whites in X” or “first non-white in X”.
Following from the increasing proportion of non-whites in traditionally white spaces is a lowering of general standards. As a result, r-selected behaviours and attitudes are driving out K-selected ones. The growing cultural obsession with analingus is perhaps the most telling example – arse fetishism is almost non-existent in fully white countries.
The fourth trend is uglification.
This can be seen most clearly in music and architecture. Today’s popular music is almost antithetical to the high culture of Beethoven and Vivaldi. Orchestral music has been replaced with crude jungle beats that appeal to the brain stem. A similar phenomenon has taken place with architecture. Brutalism is a name given to the architectural style that emphasis minimalism and concrete, but it’s so common today that most people think it’s normal.
Uglification can also be seen in fashion. The most notable example today is the promotion of Lizzo, a monstrously obese woman, as a model of beauty. Genuinely beautiful women are starting to become rare in mainstream media. The combined effect of the uglification of music, architecture and fashion is that people have lost their conception of what beauty is. This has had severe moral consequences.
The fifth trend is stupefaction.
In the early days of the Internet, it was possible to easily find information about any subject. These times were known as the Golden Age of the Internet. But as the information superhighway became more commercialised, hobbyist and enthusiast sites were pushed to the bottom of search results in favour of big advertisers. As the ruling class put more and more advertising between the people and the information, the masses became dumber and dumber.
Part of stupefaction involves the promotion of unqualified people as authorities. Bill Nye, “The Science Guy”, only has a Bachelor’s degree, and is therefore less of a scientific authority than the author of this article. Unqualified people are promoted as experts everywhere in the mass media, lowering the quality of public discourse and popularising misconceptions and falsehoods.
The sixth trend is pacification.
Aldous Huxley warned that the ruling class would one day train the masses to love their servitude, and that’s exactly what has happened. We have been pacified by having just enough of our material needs met to prevent any real discontent. No-one really has to go without food or entertainment nowadays, and this has led to an oversatisfied population that is willing to accept all kinds of human rights abuses.
Pacification is the end result of the infantilisation, the feminisation, the negrification, the uglification and the stupefaction of the masses. All of these trends have created a population that is utterly incapable of resisting the abuses of the ruling class – this being, of course, the ultimate reason why they were all pushed.
In the tyranny to come, no adult spaces will be allowed to exist, no male spaces will be allowed to exist, no white spaces will be allowed to exist, no beautiful spaces will be allowed to exist, no intelligent spaces will be allowed to exist and no space for courage will be allowed to exist. In short, no place of order will be allowed to exist, because any order among the masses provides the basis for resistance.
Much of the logic behind Clown World is about forcing chaos into orderly spaces for the sake of destruction. The more the ruling class can sow chaos among their lower-class enemies, the less the lower classes are able to resist the depredations of the rulers. And so, the more infantilised, feminised, negrified, uglified, stupified and pacified society becomes, the harder it becomes to own a home and to raise a family on one wage.
Similar to an essay I posted a couple of weeks ago on the subject matter of humiliation, the above essay also talks of how people are being groomed to accept more totalitarian style of government. On trends like infantilisation and stupefaction, it’s pretty easy for one to understand how they dumb down the population and hence make them easier to control.
A lot of the other points, though, may lead one to ponder, why are they bad? For example, what’s inherently bad about ugliness and what exactly is the “severe moral consequences” that the above writing warns about regarding it?
To understand this further, it helps to circle back and look at these trends through the lens of “humiliation”. Here is a quote by Theodore Dalrymple’s on his criticism toward political correctness, which happens to cover a lot of the trends listed by the author of the above essay under the headings of “feminisation”, “negrification” and “uglification”:
Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.
Knowing someone was hired or promoted mostly due to their race or gender, and not their merits, is bad enough. To be forced to lie and act as if they are just as qualified as everyone else is worse. Additionally, looking at things that are obviously ugly and be forced to act if they are beautiful has a similar effect. The main stream media’s push for transgenderism and its acceptance in the recent years is something in the same vein, as well.
Like what the above quote indicates, the repeated lies on increasingly unrealistic matters in our modern society is a form of humiliation and serves to slowly chip away one’s ability to resist on a spiritual/psychological level, if one is unaware of what is taking place. That, in my opinion, is the worst consequence these 3 trends can do to the general population, and is worth elaborating on. Not to mention aside from “uglification”, the other 2 trends also serve to break up communities that may otherwise band together and offer resistance to totalitarian rule by instigating infighting among them.
Lastly, a tongue in cheek way of looking at how some of the trends mentioned by the above essay have manifested in society:
I originally found the above essay as a screen cap on 4chan (listed below), but further research show that it’s also hosted here, on the site of the original author.
