Yay for Abe

Courtesy of Dean Baker, one of my favorite economists, I read this interesting article about Shinzo Abe’s stimulus plan in Japan. It turns out that, contrary to the assertion of venal hacks like Fareed Zakaria, the Abe government’s intervention in the economy has done a lot of good. What makes the success of Abenomics so critical is that it serves as a rebuttal to the junk economics pervading the financialized West. Be sure to throw Abe in the face of the next neoliberal/libertarian who waxes eloquent about “balanced budgets.”

Speaking of balance, this article got me thinking once again about the differences between the liberal West and the rest. In most countries, mild economic populism and mixed private/public economies coexist with a strong sense of nationalism. Indeed, Shinzo Abe has been branded an “arch-nationalist” by mainstream outlets such as the Economist. As Abe shows, sane nations look after their people while simultaneously erecting walls against mass immigration and cultural leftism.

By contrast, the United States eschews this normal balance in favor of a bizarre combination of cutthroat neoliberal economics and SJW lunacy. Under this wonderful system, big corporations prove how enlightened they are by standing up for gays and transsexuals – all while paying their CEOs 300 times as much as their regular workers (Japanese CEOs earn far less). The United States is a land where we celebrate the diversity of our people, most of whom devote large chunks of their income to paying a diverse range of parasitic rentiers. We may be atomized, alienated, and economically insecure, but at least we can eat out at “ethnic” restaurants; well, when we can occasionally afford to.

What makes this arrangement so untenable is that it’s hard to maintain harmony when resources are increasingly scarce. It’s difficult to see the Other as a brother when he could potentially take your job. At some point, the U.S. will either have to work towards genuine economic justice (unlikely) or find a way to maintain a white majority and reject cultural liberalism (even more unlikely). Otherwise, expect turbulence in the years ahead.

While many might rightly contend that you cannot compare the United States to Japan, the leadership of Shinzo Abe nevertheless shows that there are alternatives to our current economic and cultural rot.

    Trying to secure a white majority in the US is now impossible. Birth rates among Hispanics compared to European Americans and high immigration rates say it all. The USA will have a white minority before long and I can’t see that ever being reversed.

    It’s a shame really. I do hope Canada can save itself but I can’t see it. In fact I can’t see any European country, especially Western European country having a white majority by the end of this century.

      I’m inclined to agree. At this point, I think it’s more important for whites to “uncuck” themselves and find a way to remain relevant even as a minority; though I still support immigration and other measures to mitigate the effects of demographic change. As much as I would like the majority of Westerners to look like me in the future, we might just have to settle for genuine assimilation.

      A healthy economy would help in this regard.

    Hey Bay Area Guy, I’m a reporter working on a story about the alt-right’s influence in the Bay Area. For some reason you seemed like a good person to talk to. I please let me know a good way for us to chat. My email is josh.harkinson@gmail.com.

    I think you are right about demographics BAG, but I also think that a form of White Zionism will be a political force in the future because we are financially reaching a boiling point where diversity with no wide spread conflict will be unmaintanable. Some of our nations will fall to the rising tide of color through assimilation or even outright warfare, but some others will resist, and the Whites remaining in the former nations will be encouraged to emigrate to escape diversity and persecution. We may never rule the world again, but I believe we will at least have homelands just for us again.
