Fed court says to let El Chapo speak publicly is too dangerous.
El Chapo was denied the request to speak in fed court 2 days ago after prosecutors and a US judge agreed on the possibility of El Chapo trying to send Narco Don type “messages to his family,” or something shady. This is CYA for senior management of the Security State: if El Chapo escapes from custody a third time – that would look pretty bad. He’s being kept inside a one man max security bubble with restrictions on him greater than the ones placed on Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. El Chapo isn’t even allowed to be in the same room with his lawyers, although the court did allow him to smile at his 28 year old beauty queen wife and their two twin daughters during the pre-trial. He’s lucky The Boys didn’t make him wear a Hannibal Mask in the courtroom.
Author’s note: This is not an attempt to debunk a Harvard professor’s 800 page book with a 900 word article from an underground WordPress Blog. The decline in violence is obvious, and it is over centuries, but the causes of violence are still with us.
Most research shows that we live in a far more peaceful time than previous periods in human history. It’s a complicated topic with a lot of incomplete data for a massively huge period of examination, but the current conventional wisdom follows from Dr. Pinker’s study of the long decline in violence, “The Better Angels of Our Nature.” I agree with Pinker’s specific argument that violence has declined generally, and Pinker does save for a break from the typical 10 o’clock news run about how you might get stabbed to death by some Sureños while walking to your car at night.
Author’s note: I know I said I wouldn’t get all philosophical on this blog but the Betrayal Essay is an important piece. This was my attempt to defend Nietzsche against white nationalists who thought they’d get away with claiming Nietzsche as one of their own.
Friedrich Nietzsche described the “free spirit” as one who takes his acquired positions, his instincts, his experiences, and holds them as foreground—stressing them, straining them, and discovering what they are made of. The free spirit requires a discipline of not “staking his heart” on ideas and concepts, for ideas and concepts merely assist us as “hostels for a night, which a wanderer needs and accepts,” and though one may be tempted to move into the most comfortable hostel, one must be wary of settling down.1
Nietzsche sought to see western man move away from the passive recede of concepts to become active in the creation of new concepts. This rejection of purifying and polishing concepts was not a call to ignore the western cannon, but a desire to see the individual cast off his snake skins, at which point, the individual creates new work without irony or moral condemnation—“the work of the pure free willed spirit.”2
One thing about European New Right philosophy that I think is right is that America is a completely separate culture and civilization from Europe even if it is a derivitive in many ways. Interestingly, North American New Righters try to be more European culturally and intellectually even if many of them are Americans by birth and citizenship. That said, as the demographic change continues and whites become just another minority I don’t see how white nationalists will not become even weirder to most Americans or not be a right wing version of the creepy cross dressing homo plastic surgery freaks of leftist identity politics groups with their own bizarre subcultures and idiosyncracies. I am just not convinced that a high brow, intellectual, racialist counter culture is going to achieve intellectual hegemony in US cultural institutions and then trickle down from the Alternative Bourgeoisie to the white masses to forma zee Eudapean Amedikin Etno Homozexuelle State.
