Francis Fukiyama Was Wrong About Everything

I can remember back when "THE END OF HISTORY" was published and decided that almost all amateurs, laymen and historical buffs must know far more about human history than the inner circle of academics at the West's "educational institutions." For a book like this to be lauded and celebrated as a fundamental insight into the modern world would only be possible for a bunch of infantile, childlike men who had never held day jobs, still lived in their parents garage and had never kissed a girl or been punched in the face. It didn't seem possible that any man who knew anything of the historical record of the past 5000 years could possibly think this book was anything but gibberish. The ironic subtitle implies that the author had read THUS SPAKE ZARATHRUSTRA and possibly he did - unfortunately he understood it not at all. Nietzsche's "last man" is a fool who will repeat all the mistakes of the past without exception.

Fukiyama was just the last gear on a wheel that always comes around again. As long as Homo Sapiens exists, you will never see an end to war. It defines him. Without it he barely has any substance at all. As Nietzsche said, this rude camp would otherwise have no dignity at all if the martial virtues were not become necessity with them once again.

Let me quote the great epistemologist directly and you tell me if you think Fukiyama comprehended the text.

For those of you reading the text for the first time, I will explain it as concisely as possible - the conditions of peace breed bad character in men and makes them into complete fools who think themselves wise. After this they lose every single thing their ancestors built up and established for them.

Lo! I show you the Last Man.

"What is love? What is creation? What is longing? What is a star?" -- so asks the Last Man, and blinks.

The earth has become small, and on it hops the Last Man, who makes everything small. His species is ineradicable as the flea; the Last Man lives longest. 

"We have discovered happiness" -- say the Last Men, and they blink.
They have left the regions where it is hard to live; for they need warmth. One still loves one's neighbor and rubs against him; for one needs warmth. 

Turning ill and being distrustful, they consider sinful: they walk warily. He is a fool who still stumbles over stones or men! 

A little poison now and then: that makes for pleasant dreams. And much poison at the end for a pleasant death. 

One still works, for work is a pastime. But one is careful lest the pastime should hurt one. 

One no longer becomes poor or rich; both are too burdensome. Who still wants to rule? Who still wants to obey? Both are too burdensome. 

No shepherd, and one herd! Everyone wants the same; everyone is the same: he who feels differently goes voluntarily into the madhouse. 

"Formerly all the world was insane," -- say the subtlest of them, and they blink.
They are clever and know all that has happened: so there is no end to their derision.

People still quarrel, but are soon reconciled -- otherwise it upsets their stomachs.
They have their little pleasures for the day, and their little pleasures for the night, but they have a regard for health.

"We have discovered happiness," -- say the Last Men, and they blink.

"I teach you the overman. Man is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?
All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And man shall be just that for the overman: a laughingstock or a painful embarrassment..."

Excellent analysis on the why young second-generation Muslims join ISIS and become terrorists. The best explanation I've come across so far. Same thing happened with the last pagan Roman generation and their fanatic Christian offspring. Westerners are morons and in the dark about pretty much everything except new products.

Ill be frank- if it weren't for the globalists and human nature I would be all over genetically engineering mankind. Alas, we have chimeras being developed in labs. Part human cows in china now make human breast milk. Despicable. Only the satanist have the power over genetics and thy use it for perversion. Maybe the robots will make it off this rock. Or perhaps robots, being empty things, will become shells for the demons to permanently reside in. Who knows.
Get your rice and beans, for soon comes the end of the Holocene!

"Another form of selection is intimately concerned with the complexity of the social structure. When a population is stratified into social horizons, this cultural differentiation is often the result of the conjunction of two or more social and hence ethnic groups, from two or more geographical sources. It takes time for cultures to blend and for people who practice these cultures to mix, and if there exists, at the same time, the idea that one group is superordinate and the other subordinate in social values, the social mechanism will often function in such a way as to perpetuate this cleavage. Thus the mixing process will be retarded, and at the same time a difference in the reproductive rates of the two racially identified social horizons may arise.

As a rule, at least in modern times, the group which is considered subordinate will reproduce with greater fecundity than will the superior class. In this way the upper class will gradually disappear, or else social mobility will gradually replace the upper from the ranks of the lower, and the social distinction will remain, but without racial significance. Thus a differential reproductive rate has, in effect, a selective value, and one population may quietly replace another. Whether or not the replacement is complete, the relative numerical importance of the two genetic strains will have been altered. "

He was right, he just got the pronoun wrong.

“Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

“Perhaps, when we remember wars, we should take off our clothes and paint ourselves blue and go on all fours all day long and grunt like pigs. That would surely be more appropriate than noble oratory and shows of flags and well-oiled guns.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

“In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in His cosmic loneliness.

And God said, "Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done." And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close to mud as man sat up, looked around, and spoke. Man blinked. "What is the purpose of all this?" he asked politely.

"Everything must have a purpose?" asked God.

"Certainly," said man.

"Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this," said God.

And He went away.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle
