I have written before about the toxic role that corporations have played in polluting our culture and society. However, corporate malfeasance wouldn’t be so deleterious if our elected officials exercised more autonomy and were capable of tempering their influence. Alas, that is not the case, and one can commonly hear Americans bemoaning the role of special interests and major donors. However, very rarely do you hear such “fundraising” described for what it truly is: legalized bribery. Indeed, what would be considered outright bribery in most of the world is perfectly legal and acceptable here in the United States. Such bribery has been aided and abetted by various Supreme Court decisions, which have afforded corporations the rights of individuals and simultaneously removed restrictions on the amount of money that individuals can “donate.” Power no longer resides in elected officials but in those to whom they are financially beholden.
So how is this all relevant, and what does it have to do with the cultural crimes we so often denounce on our blog? One of the recurring arguments of the alternative right is that white majorities continue to be sold out and undermined by hostile elites. The disproportionate power and influence of Jews is often cited as the primary culprit for such elitist aggression, but that’s too simplistic of an analysis.
The real problem is that even if white politicians wanted to make a real difference, their hands would be tied by the process of fundraising. White nationalists attack the Republican party for being feckless and unable to tackle the various issues that their constituents really care about, especially with regards to immigration. However, what makes them think that Republicans would make a genuine effort to close the borders on a national level? After all, since Republicans are beholden to big business interests, they’re not about to deprive their masters of cheap labor. The best they can do is come up with laws such as Arizona’s SB 1070 in certain states. Strangely enough, the evil secret Muslim Kenyan Socialist Barack Obama has done more to deport illegal immigrants than any white Republican in recent memory.
Republicans will also not make any real impact on various social issues, because the wealthy whites who run the party don’t care about their fellow white people or social problems that exist outside of their comfortable bubbles. In a study that demonstrated white peoples’ growing conservatism in response to non-white demographic gains, the only group of white people who didn’t seem too perturbed by the impending minority status of whites were, surprise, the ones with wealth and status. Why worry about multiculturalism and feminism when you can continue to amass wealth and enjoy the good life?
Or take Jewish power and the Zionist lobby, which is another pet peeve of the alternative right. The power of the Jewish lobby is indeed formidable, but it’s not omnipotent. The reason Jews wield so much political power is due to their tremendous fundraising efforts, which accounts for wildly disproportionate percentages of Democratic and Republican funding. Regardless of a politician’s personal views, who is going to risk losing out on money or allowing his opponent to procure more funding than him?
As the Al Jazeera editorial pointed out, there are ways to reduce the influence of money in politics. By having the state provide public funding to politicians, politicians will actually be forced to answer to the people they purportedly represent. Separating politics from private fundraising would go a long way towards addressing the various afflictions we discuss. Politicians could act on the white public’s desire to restrict immigration because they wouldn’t fear the reproach of big business. Jewish power in politics would significantly decline because elected officials would no longer be dependent on Jewish money. Heck, the independence from special interests such as the food industry could even play a role in reducing our nation’s disgraceful obesity rate.
We have penned many articles decrying various toxic trends that are destroying the West. However, it should be recognized that they are but symptoms of a much greater disease. That disease is a group of callous elites who could care less if Rome burns, so long as they can continue living as patricians. Left wing or right wing, rotten elites are rotten elites.
Ending their negative influence is a tall order, but preventing them from buying our elected officials would be a great place to start. And in the meantime, don’t vote Republican.
