The End of Times
Alexander Gordon Jahans
The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race. They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in "advanced" countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development of technology will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will probably lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it may lead to increased physical suffering even in "advanced" countries.
If you study the material on this website you will hopefully understand our joy and what our purpose here on Earth has been. You may even find your "boarding pass" to leave with us during this brief "window."
Things are not good and they haven't been good for quite some time but for a while there was hope. Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply troubled society. One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of our world is the alt-right, so a discussion of the psychology of the alt-right can serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern society in general.
The two psychological tendencies that underlie the alt-right we call "feelings of inferiority" and "oversocialization". Feelings of inferiority are characteristic of the alt-right as a whole, while oversocialization is characteristic only of a certain segment of the alt-right; but this segment is highly influential. It is somewhat ironic however that I am such a bastard myself. I like capitalism when it works, I like women pretty much exactly how feminism doesn't, although entirely safe, sane and consensual, I am not a worldly wise expert on foreign history, culture on politics and I do admit a twinge of regret at the thought of pretty white girls possibly going extinct as a breed.
The fact the alt-right has chosen to come to me seeking intense political discourse is not going to alter the fact that I am not such a provider. I am not going to argue with these fools because this is not my job. My failings do not undermine what I believe in and neither does what I believe in damn me. The alt-right is desperately anxious to prove that white males are as strong as capable as people of colour. Clearly they are nagged by a fear that white men may NOT be as strong and as capable as people of colour.
