Cass Sunstein; to build a resurgent pro-white movement, build social capital

Cass Sunstein gives us excellent advice.

Harvard University political scientist Robert Putnam has done a great deal to explore the beneficial effects of social capital. In his book “Bowling Alone,” he documented what he saw as its decline in the U.S., connecting that decline with a wide range of social problems.
Pointing to research by Putnam and others, many people have argued that the U.S. and other nations should make a sustained effort to measure and increase social capital, with particular attention to civic associations that help to generate it.
At the same time, social capital can have a dark side. If people are in a social network whose members are interested in committing crimes, the existence of social capital will promote criminal activity. A fascinating recent study called “Bowling for Fascism” goes much further: It shows that the rise of Nazism was greatly facilitated by unusually high levels of social capital in Weimar Germany.
Hitler’s Rise
The research offers an important and novel perspective on Adolf Hitler’s ascension to power. And by identifying conditions that help to spread extremism, it also offers significant lessons for the present, including the risk of terrorism.
The study, conducted by New York University’s Shanker Satyanath and his co-authors, is based on a wide range of original materials, including Nazi Party membership lists and hand-collected data from 112 German towns. The central question: Who was most likely to join the Nazi Party?
In the late 1920s and early 1930s, Germany had an exceptionally vibrant civil society that included clubs involved in hiking, animal breeding, shooting, gymnastics, bowling, firefighting and singing. The authors’ principal finding is that in cities with dense networks of clubs and associations, Germans were far more likely to join the Nazi Party. In their words, “a dense fabric of civic associations went hand-in-hand with a more rapid rise of Nazi party membership.”
It could be suggested that some independent factor, such as socioeconomic status or religion, accounts both for associational activity and for willingness to join the Nazi Party. But that suggestion is inconsistent with the evidence. Even if we control for these and other variables, a dense network of civic associations is correlated with significantly higher rates of entry into the Nazi Party.
This finding undermines the view, held by some, that the Nazi Party succeeded by appealing to people who were socially isolated and that Hitler was able to draw support largely from the lonely and the rootless.
But the evidence strongly suggests otherwise. Nazism spread in part as a result of face-to-face interactions by people who were in frequent contact with one another.
Consider the chilling remarks of a Nazi Party member who recalled his growing acquaintance “with a colleague of my own age with whom I had frequent conversations. He was a calm, quiet person whom I esteemed very highly. When I found out that he was one of the local leaders of the National Socialist party, my opinion of it as a group of criminals changed completely.”
Social Pressures
The authors’ central findings fit well with emerging research on the immense importance of social influences on individual behavior. With respect to music, political convictions, voting and food, we constantly learn from others. Like-minded people tend to go to extremes, in large part because they learn from each other. Within nations and around the world, modern social media connect disparate people and hence build social capital, intensifying social influences on thought and behavior.
For the current period, there is a straightforward lesson. Individuals and nations generally benefit from large numbers of private associations, including sports clubs, religious groups and parent-teacher associations. But in some nations, dense social networks also increase people’s vulnerability to extremism. A great deal of work suggests that terrorism itself can arise not because people are isolated, poor or badly educated, but because they are part of tightly knit networks in which hateful ideas travel quickly.
No one should doubt that private associations are desirable and valuable, and that they can produce a dazzling range of social goods, including checks on the power of government. But Satyanath and his co-authors reveal another possibility: that such associations can facilitate the spread of extremism, ultimately laying the groundwork for serious challenges to democracy itself.
(Cass R. Sunstein, the Robert Walmsley University professor at Harvard Law School, is a Bloomberg View columnist. He is the former administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, the co-author of “Nudge” and author of “Simpler: The Future of Government.”)

Of course, it’s hard to build social capital when everyone has plenty of corn syrup and transport fuel. We don’t hang out with each other because we don’t need each other. We live in our bubbles, and Cass Sunstein is darn glad of it!

Those redneck civic associations could work together to make sure that people like Cass Sunstein don’t get in any positions of power or influence ever again! Wouldn’t that be terrible? Sunstein wants us to stay in the dark, not cooperating, not thinking as a group. Because we don’t like Cass Sunstein. We don’t want him micromanaging our lives for us, or dictating our morality from his ivory fucking tower.

Cass Sunstein surveys the masses of white people from sea to shining sea, and feels a shiver of fear. If these people ever start cooperating, I’m done for! My goose is cooked! He knows we hate him and hate everything he stands for.

High fuel prices and high food prices and high booze prices and high tobacco prices is what we need to bring back social capital. There was a time, believe it or not, when a large percentage of the population was involved in producing and/or processing and/or trading these things. This naturally built social capital.

Which is why I thank the stars that oil is 107 a barrel. Every year that it continues at that price, the process of capital formation degrades. As it is, it is Ponzi schemes all the way down. I know Hipster Racist says it can go on forever. But I think at some point, some group of people who lost their investment will have the power to set off a chain reaction that crashes the whole thing in the space of a day or two.

Oil could go back down to 60 or 70 a barrel for lack of demand because of a destroyed economy. But at this price, the shale drilling stops, destroying those jobs and thus destroying even more demand. This is what is called “the bumpy plateau.” So there’s really no “recovery” scenario, except maybe killing off a few billion people.

What I’m really looking forward to is the end of the yellow school buses and the end of public schools. Public schools promote anti-intellectualism, and anti-intellectualism is the most effective Mindweapon against us. People who are thinking again, are going to start thinking about how Cass Sunstein and millions of his Paycheck Liberal minions have been shitting all over us. At the same time, those Paycheck Liberal minions will lose their paychex, and likely end up in our camp.

That’s why I see Sunstein’s Bloomberg article linked above as a prophecy of doom for the Chutzpahcracy. I smell fear on him! He doesn’t trust ordinary White people to not be Nazis! I think he’s right.

    Jews are idiots, some jews admit this. We are in a 4th Generation conflict, that between the State and other social organizing forces. Well the jew State of liberal welfare bennies is broke, its basic ideology the Blank Slate Theory is a joke requiring strict censorship to protect its fragile existence (there exists more proof of the Easter Bunny than the BST), and with the broke State and its disgraced founding myth people are drifting towards actual human organizing.

    If a big jew wrote an open editorial that basically said that the funding for all this crap should be pulled quickly instead of the slow bleed I would not be surprised in the least. I’m not a jewser per se but they basically do the heavy thinking, people like Egan above do the repeating.

  2. clytemnestra57 says:

    Wow! I never thought those in power were such frightened little men!

    I highly doubt that White people socializing is going to lead to some sort of violent, Antisemitic Aryan Nazi uprising in the USA considering that most Americans take great pride in the fact that our grandfathers rescued the poor little Jews in the concentration camps by defeating the Nazis during WWII. Not only is a star-spangled, red, white, and blue pogrom very unlikely, but IMO, it’s the last thing America needs.

    The big problem with those of European descent where “The Eternal Guest of the West” is concerned was the pendulum constantly and violently swinging back and forth between virulent Antisemitism and a slobbering Philosemitism. The goal we all want to strive for is ASEMITISM, so that we can focus on our own Japhethite identities. The goal is to stop trying to either fundamentally change or adapt to Semites, but encourage them to be what they are on their own home turf instead of ours. No need to get personal here.

    Bowling leagues evolve into Nazi paratroopers? Methinks Cass Sunstein dropped a little too much acid in college to successfully make that kind of extrapolation. Otherwise, he might have opened up a history book and realized that Germany having a front row seat to the Holodomor and other atrocities by the Bolsheviks of Russia might have had a lot more to do with it.

    Still, there is a passive aggressive side of me that thinks fucking with idiots like Sunstein would be a lot of fun. So, being the bitch that I am, I think that WN v.2.0. should co-opt his crack-headed idea just for shits and giggles. I love the idea of the Sunsteins of Washington losing sleep over scary stuff like: bowling leagues, tag team football, baseball, soccer, volleyball, quilting bees, chili cook-offs, etc.

    On a serious note, though, a practical reason for WN to exchange political activism in favor of groups that create social networking is that all of these social clubs that encourage Whites to socialize with each other only create more Whites. IOW, Whites will have a built in network to form tight friendships and meet potential spouses. Whites would have a social support group which would back the up as they raise White children.

    It would take WNism from being this grim affair where angry White activists bark orders at the White sheeple to have children they fear they can’t afford, because they have no support system to a fun, warm, supportive community network that will back them up.

  3. anon334 says:

    What a disturbing way of thinking Cass has. It brings up another angle on diversity and why Jews promote it – because diversity destroys the white ability to work together with others, it prevents the rise of “Nazis.” They purposely crush white social capital through promotion of degenerate culture because if they don’t whites will rise up and kill all the jews.

  4. anon334 says:

    BTW, love the comments at the Bloomberg link. Looks like WN got there first 8)

  5. Sam Barber says:

    This is excellent guidance in what to do. More practical advice on what to do day to day in order to become a full fledged MW. Building social capital and maintain a good reputation seems like solid advice.

    I took part in an investing seminar a few years back and came away with some solid information and a reinforced ideology on how to win by playing both sides. The goal was to win no matter what you had to do in order to win. One of the tidbits of information that I gleaned from the course was the use of nuggets. Nuggets of information are what become useful to a man when he has a goal. Nuggets are in line with your strategy and ideology and are useful bits that most people will miss ( although MW’s don’t miss very many at all). IN order to win we MW’s use nuggets and implement them when we see them.

    I love the blogosphere and MW’s who post articles and comments as well as those who practice their arguments and test their ideas among our peers. I love even more the practical nuggets that I can make part of my strategy and building social capital instead of alienating people is now part of that strategy. I am ever expanding my social circles with more people, and more importantly expanding them with a higher caliber of person.

    I am also combining that building of social capital with taqqiyah ( another nugget ), it’s not easy and at times rather distasteful but we do what we have to do to win.

    Thanks for this post.

    • mindweapon says:

      Good one! I never heard that term, “nuggets” but it’s certainly applicable.

      Best example I can think of — we had a young man here who was going to major in history. Myself and a commenter started emailing him, and we persuaded him to major in Petroleum Engineering instead. We got him to kill his idealism and the bankrupt idea of “persuading people with sovereign reason” and instead to pursue raw power.

      I don’t want to persuade the liberals. I want to enslave them and otherwise dominate them.

      • Sam Barber says:

        The pursuit of raw power might appears to be the bare bones goal of MW-ing. Thinking 500 years ahead should allow for the construction of indestructible raw power.

        Excellent post.

      Because of this site, I too, instead of being a crank like most WN, am becoming a diplomatic friend-maker.

  6. Well, Cass Sunstein finally explained the reason for the neurotic and hateful attitudes that non-goys possess towards European Americans. It seems that the neurotic non-goys think that we’re as obsessed with them as they are of Whites. Not only that, the non-goys seem to think that Whites are hiding behind every bush and tree, waiting to Holocaust them at every given moment. Or, it could be the result of a collective ‘guilty conscience’ of what the non-goys have been doing to Whites for hundreds of years–and they legitimately fear our righteous fury and retaliation for their behavior.

  7. Afterthought says:

    Sunstein is a Mayberry Machiavelli, but he is right on this one.

    White nationalists need to be like Hezbollah, a humanitarian arm and a political arm.

  8. Tom Bowie says:

    “Can IT happen here?”

    The usual suspects ask that question not only of themselves but of each other. They don’t even know that they’re hopeful they’ll be told a comforting lie rather than the truth. They seek desperately the comfort that lie would bring and fear a truthful response.

    A few have stopped asking the question and are even more deluded, thinking that by tightening the screws harder they can stop what has always been the result of their own actions. They’ve always lived in fear of events while never asking themselves what role they played in such events.

    For them every White Man they encounter could transmogrify into an SS Soldier complete with uniform and every White Woman into a cheerleader chanting death to the Juden, without invoking undue surprise, they already see us that way.

    They are a people who’s history is in three parts; heading towards a Pogrom / In a Pogrom / Recovering from a Pogrom. Worse yet is the lot of the more intelligent Jew who wonders how he can sell out his fellow Jews before they do it to him; selling out too soon can bring the ire of their fellow Jews down upon them and too late, is simply too late.

    Unlike most, my awakening began as a long deep look into the abyss.

    Q
    In recent decades, many social scientists have drawn attention to the importance of “social capital.” The term is meant to capture the value, economic and otherwise, that comes from social networks, through which people frequently interact with one another. But what if social capital ends up contributing to the rise of extreme movements, including fascism?
    It is well-established that individuals and societies can gain a great deal from civic institutions, such as parent-teacher associations, athletic leagues, churches and music clubs. High levels of social capital have been associated with numerous social benefits, including improvements in health, promise-keeping, trust, altruism, compliance with the law, child welfare and individual happiness.

    I'd say having our country be run by Jews who are hostile toward whites, innundate them with third worlders and hate crime laws while asserting their own right to a semitic, Jewish state has more to do with it than bowling. AIPAC, Verint and Narus, The Jewish dominion over what passes for news and entertainment must end. The lies and the using of America as Israel's thug enforcer will end now. America has finally awakened and sees that it is a once proud nation now occupied by Jews.

    Cass forgot the most evil, the most pervasive, voluntary associations around: the nuclear family, the extended family and the tribe. Operating in secret, meeting and sharing in secret, even eating in secret, they pass on the most pernicious beliefs imaginable. The tribe keeps all others out during their special rituals and celebrations in which they pass on their pernicious extremist beliefs. Until we can ban meetings of the tribe and the family, democracy will never be safe.

    The Nazi's were resisting Communism within Germany, a noble goal given the "excesses" of Stalin.

    Who is this "We" White man? Michael Jackson was a drug taking pedophile, Conservative Whites supported Paula Deen or any person who has the guts to throw off the politically correct yoke and say any word they want, especially racial descriptors and defamatory words. I also looked at the evidence and supported and still support Jorge Zimmerman, while this negro run administration turned a blind to harassment and felonies including the issuance of a death warrant for his life by a negro political party. When the jury found the truth, the administration doubled down. The only political party that supports less free speech is the Democrats with their Orwellian "Political Correctness".

    Conservative Whites have been on the truth side of these and many other issues.

    Well, bowling is about throwing a ball down a lane to violently knock down a set of completely innocent pins who have done nothing to offend the bowler. The more pins one knocks down, the higher the score and the more acclaim a person receives.

    I could see how bowling alleys could be a good recruiting ground for a violent ideology — especially with the early 1930's collapse of the German economy during the Depression.

    Genocide involves the mass murder of another group, in an attempt to remove them. Think Rwanda. That is in Africa, and it had nothing to do with whites, yet the world did object. Thus it is false to claim that only white people are told they have to live people they consider to be ethnically different.

    None of which answers the question why you keep posting under different names, rants about diversity, under a blog that seems to be on an entirely different topic. Is there some relevance? My working assumption is that you simply don’t like the writer’s implication that there was something wrong with Nazi thinking.

    The answer is very simple: Most “Social organizations” are founded for and by whites. The author is attempting to make it out that white people are naturally going to turn into Nazis by being members of social groups. The fact of the matter is, if a black group wants to deny membership to non-blacks, its okay. If Jewish groups like the Bilderbergers want to refuse non-Jews entrance, it’s fine. If white people want our own social groups, we’re naziswhowanttokillsixmillionjewsandenslaveblacks ,when in reality the Jews and blacks are the ones who want to enslave and kill whites.

    An often overlooked history of the German National Socialist Workers’ Party is entitled The War Against the West, by Aurel Kolnai. Parts of its are online, here and there. The War Against the West is the most thoroughly detailed account of the German national socialist ideology ever put forth.

    An intro to Kolnai’s The War Against the West is online, here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T

    Interestingly, the hostility toward Western civilization exhibited by the German National Socialist Workers’ Party was very similar to the hostility toward Western civilization exhibited by the intellectual vanguard of today’s democrat party, including Mr. Sunstein.

    Hitler used tradtional Western values to sell Nazism to the German people. He spokr og Jesus Christ as his “Lord and Savior’ in a Christian nation that was the birthplace of the Protestant Reformation and also had a strong Romam Catholic Church. His Final Solution came to fruition in the poison soil of 2000 years of Christian anti-Semitism, for which Martin Luther was a spokeperson.

    Same with you. Read “Hitlers War”, the most thoroughly documented war biography yet. Agreed that pagan symbolism was used in the Nazi Party, just as Che’ is used in the Democrat party. Further, the Author has a standing offer of $1000 for any document that states that the Nazi’s ordered a “Final Solution” of Jews. If you want to see killing, it is Rummel’s “Democide” book you should read, with Communists killing from Ukraine to Cambodia. As Suraman said, “We only need to remove those who oppose us.”

    Quit hiding behind one book and stand up for yourself. Did Hitler not refer to Jesus as his Lord and Savior? Does Christianity not have a long history of anti-Semitism? Who invented the blood libel? Who created the ghetto in Rome? Did Martin Luther not write a book titled “The Jews and Their Lies” in which he referred to Jews as a “base, whoring people, that is, no people of God, and their boast of lineage, circumcision, and law must be accounted as filth.” and in which he advocated among other things. burning all Jewish synagogues, schools and homes to the ground?

    Read: “The Nazi Seizure of Power”, by William Sheridan Allen (1965), which is a microscopic look at the rise the the Nazis in one small German town, Northeim.

    Key quote: “The single biggest factor in this process was the destruction of formal society in Northeim. What social cohesion there was in the town existed in the club life, and this was destroyed in the early months of Nazi rule. With their social organizations gone and with terror a reality, Northeimers were largely isolated from one another. This was true of the middle class but even more true of the workers, since by the destruction of the SPD and the unions the whole complex of social ties created by this super-club was effaced. By reducing the people of Northeim to unconnected social atoms, the Nazis could move the resulting mass in whatever direction they wished.”

    Mr. Sunstein’s well-written column is consistent with the current research on the importance of networks — whether data, financial, biological, or, in this case, social. The previous emphasis on nodes has shifted to a greater recognition of the importance not so much of the nodes or points, but of those connections. Good column. Social networks can have a moderating influence on the individual, but they can also reinforce extreme ideas.

    Many people are unaware of the fact that only about 7% of the German population ever joined the Nazi Party. Sadly, that means 93% did very little to stop them. On the other hand, in Austria, the membership rate was nearly 20%.

    I suggest you look at the large amounts of government intervention in European economies at the time, the socioeconomics of early 20th century Vienna, along with the huge influxes of Jewish immigrants that led to high levels of crime there in order to explain how fascism can take hold in a society.

    The United States is simply repeating all of the same mistakes as Europe — and Japan, now — by manipulating its economy in the name of various noble causes. The overall effect, however, is greater societal stratification as creative destruction is repressed until it explodes into collapses that require bailouts.

    I would argue that central banking and fiat currency are the root cause of Nazism; not PTAs and bowling leagues. They just help spread the word.

    Just because they didn’t join it doesn’t mean they didn’t support it.

    “Could Bowling Leagues and the PTA Breed Nazis?”

    No.

    But but we know that control freaks like Sunstein with their Harvard pedigrees closely hew to the NAZI paradigm of rule by an elite clique of self proclaimed experts.

    Don’t we Cass?

    Sunstein breaks a record(or at least ties one) by falsely associating normal people who believe in the direct opposite of total government as NAZI’s in an a vile Orwelliian inversion of language and thus confirming Godwin’s law from the get go.

    Sunstein is dangerously dishonest in his arguments and depends on the historical illiteracy of his audience to pass this drivel off as enlightened reasoning.

    Has Cass ever gone bowling?
    My brother is an avid bowler. His bowling league included teams composed of gay men and lesbians, handicapped individuals, and most of the teams were multi-racial. Perhaps if Cass mingled with regular people more frequently and less with his self-selected, elitist types, he might find that he’s the one who’s got the Nazi tendancies, rather than the other way around.

    In fact, Stuart Chase, the archetypal autocratic technocrat, imported the blueprint for today’s democrat party from National Socialist Germany, the International Socialist Soviet Union, and Italy, in the ’30s and ’40s.

    A bit of introductory background on Stuart Chase:

    Stuart Chase provided the architecture upon which the intellectual vanguard of today’s liberalism, including Mr. Sunstein, spins its vicious web of deceit.

    Excuse me, but could any sane person not realize that flooding EVERY & ONLY White countries with MILLIONS of non-Whites and FORCING everyone to “assimilate” to create a blended humanity IS white GENOCIDE?
    Africa will still be full of Africans
    Asia will still be full of Asians
    Only White children will suffer from this insanity.
    iT’s wHitE geNOcide
    Except they don’t call it GENOCIDE when it’s done to White children.
    They call it “diversity”
    Anti-racist is a code for anti-White

    imagine if Hitler were alive today…….

    he would have a Facebook page, with millions of followers……..

    OMG…….@nazi…..a twitter account.

    STFU!!

    he could dye his hair blonde and be a host on American Idol.

    he could do seminars, like Tony Robbins……..even speak at TED conferences!

    he could have all the storm troopers wear yellow wrist bands…….heck, he could even make them pay for the privilege.

    hmm,……actually beer commercials might be the way to go……Hitler drinking beer by a mountain stream…..the implied message being that ‘fascism quenches your thirst’.

    whoa. dude…..I can see it……

    Why didn’t Sunstein title the article “Could GLAAD and MoveOn.org Breed Nazis?” Sunstein is a leftist bottom feeder who continually tries to smear ordinary Americans with his vile innuendos.The irony is that his politics, his propaganda, and his policy of demonizing anyone who disagrees with him are almost identical to the Nazis’.

    Yes, now can you kindly tell me why what he’s done and what you’ve done are not the same?

    You’re in the same boat, but the problem is you aren’t nearly smart enough to appreciate just how idiotic and brain-damaged you are.

  12. Ah, you guys slogged through all that?! Oy vey!!!

  13. I don’t think it can go on forever, but I do suspect it can outlast our generation. If there’s one thing that makes me worry I might lose our 2 silver dollar bet, it’s WWIII starting in Syria. If that blows up, I could see gold shooting up along with oil.

    Ah, Cass Sunstein, the infamous YKW that wanted to “cognitively infiltrate” truthers, because we weren’t playing along with the Al-CIA-duh mythology (introducing: Veterans Today, all the Obama administration propaganda you can stomach with the worst, least plausible 9/11 theories.) Now I see Cass Sunstein is, like everyone else, stealing my ideas. Which controversial figure in the white blog-o-sphere has been blabbering about civil society, lodges, community organizations, credit unions, the Bowling Alone phenomenon, the mannerbund, and other such things going on 5 years now? That’s right, good ole’ Hipster Racist.

    I know you’re reading, Cass. Thanks for the endorsement. I had no idea that Bill and Frank’s Bowling League was going to lead to a rebirth of the Naawht-zeeees! Oy vey, Hitler’s back, and he’s bowling a 215! Quick, somebody protect Jon Stewart, he’s our most valuable Jew!

  14. Serious question: what’s the best way to build social capital while excluding other races, either implicitly or explicitly?
