Lesson of COVID-19: Globalism Is A Disease

I: COVID-19 and the incompetence of Western elites

The world is in the midst of its first pandemic since 2008. Like H1N1, COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, but this time it’s linked to the unsavory culinary habits of the Chinese. The virus was traced to a wet market in Wuhan, China, which sold rats, bats, snakes, cats, dogs and other “exotic” foods. COVID-19 is classified as a zoonotic pathogen because it was able to jump the species barrier and infect humans. The demographics most affected are the elderly and the immuno-compromised. Beginning in January of this year, the virus spread from China to the rest of Asia, Europe and the Americas. By March, casualties increased dramatically around the globe, especially in Italy, which is now considered the disease epicenter. Worldwide, there are currently 339,039 cases of infection and 14,698 deaths. These numbers may be even higher, since people can remain asymptomatic for weeks.

Unsurprisingly enough, world leaders were woefully unprepared for the pandemic. Seldom has the public witnessed so much incompetence and ineptitude from a gang of elected buffoons. The UK’s chief science advisor said the Boris Johnson government was looking into building up “herd immunity” by managing the spread of the virus. This would have significantly increased the UK’s rate of infection and mortality. Observers thought the government’s response to the pandemic was “satire.” Although initially downplaying the pandemic, Trudeau announced international traffic would be exclusively handled by major airports in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, with all passengers subjected to “rigorous health screening.” This apparently amounted to answering an “automated questionnaire administered by a computer touchscreen.” Only Trump was able to impose travel bans on China, Iran and western Europe, despite some initial dillydallying.

As the crisis continued to unfold, governments roused themselves from their sluggish apathy to enact more draconian measures. In the UK, police were granted emergency powers of arrest and detention of anyone suspected of having COVID-19; in Canada, most foreign travelers were denied entry. The notorious unauthorized crossing point at Roxham Rd., straddling the NY-Quebec border, was shut down (although this is disputed by some media outlets). Foreign travelers were also banned from entering Australia and New Zealand, with citizens and permanent residents expected to self-isolate for 14 days. The Trump administration restricted non-essential traffic from the US-Canada and US-Mexico borders, the first time any restrictions had been imposed on cross-border traffic since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Despite these measures, the window of opportunity to effectively control the virus had long since closed. We are now in the early stages of what promises to be a long-lasting pandemic.

If not for local Chinese officials who ignored the early warning signs of infection, the virus would have been easily contained. According to a recent study:

[I]f interventions in the country could have been conducted one week, two weeks, or three weeks earlier, cases could have been reduced by 66 percent, 86 percent and 95 percent respectively – significantly limiting the geographical spread of the disease.

More concerning are the Western governments taken completely unawares by the disease, despite the vast economic and material resources at their disposal. For months, governments stood by and did nothing while the virus raged uncontrollably in China. Instead of being proactive, the elites waited until COVID-19 became a national health crisis, forcing them to declare national emergencies when they realized half-hearted measures wouldn’t be enough to contain it. If they had the prudence and foresight to take charge of the situation before it spiraled out of control, life would have remained just the same as it was before the Wuhan outbreak. The closure of schools, universities, theaters, restaurants and other large venues would have been unnecessary. The stock market would not have crashed and the economy would not be headed towards recession.

Like Western elites, the World Health Organization (WHO), tasked with identifying and preventing pandemics, stood by and did nothing while the virus caused havoc in China. They were more concerned with renaming the Wuhan flu, to end the stigmatization of the Chinese and curb anti-Asian prejudice, than the possibility lives could be lost because of infection. By the time the WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11, it was already too late. Some epidemiologists are now predicting worst case scenarios where the American economy falls into a depression and the death toll numbers in the millions.

Wet markets amidst Wuhan virus

If only governments had invested as much time in quarantining affected areas in China as they had obsessing over racism, the COVID-19 pandemic would have been avoided. Precious time was squandered while politicians endlessly virtue-signaled about racial diversity. Instead of advising their citizens on how to protect themselves, politicians lectured them on the virtues of inclusivity and tolerance. They encouraged people to continue patronizing Chinese businesses, despite the fact many Chinese travel back and forth between China, the original disease epicenter, North America and western Europe, exposing themselves and others to the virus. For a moment, racism was far worse than being infected by a life-threatening pathogen.

II: COVID-19 is not the real disease

As the culmination of the values of the liberal Enlightenment, globalism is an elite project. The prophet of globalism, English agitator Richard Cobden (1804-1865), considered himself a disciple of economist Adam Smith. He believed that free trade on a global scale would usher in an era of unprecedented international cooperation and peace. Modern globalists have transformed Cobden’s vision into a dystopian nightmare of mass population transfers from the Third World and outsourcing of vital manufacturing industries. So committed are the elites to a world without borders, they’re willing to risk the lives of their own citizens. Not only does this highlight the uselessness of the current elites, but vindicates what classical conservatives have long known about the dangers of democracy (i.e. the so-called “tyranny of the majority”).

The Anglo-Irish statesman Edmund Burke wrote: “Government is a contrivance of human wisdom to provide for human wants.” If governments cannot fulfill this basic requirement, what purpose do they serve? The tax burden imposed on their white citizens by Western elites is an onerous one because it subsidizes the “Great Replacement.” As a result, savings have diminished, forcing many whites to live from paycheck to paycheck. If one cannot save enough money to weather economic downturns and natural disasters like COVID-19, then paying taxes is little more than state-sanctioned theft of private property.

When Western elites were more realistic about human nature, say before 1950, the nations they ruled were run in their citizens’ best interests, not the government’s or the Third World’s. Globalism, however, is in no one’s best interest, with the exception of elites and major corporations who see it as a source of personal enrichment. This is no doubt why globalists believe pursuing a utopian policy motivated by short-sighted greed and white racial self-loathing is more worthwhile than ensuring citizen well-being or providing stability in times of crisis. Through a combination of malevolence and naivete, elites have turned their own countries into dystopian Third World dumping grounds. Apparently the purpose of government, at least since the mid-twentieth century, is to put foreigners ahead of their own citizens.

Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

According to the principles of Jeffersonian liberalism, it is incumbent upon citizens to replace governments that no longer serve the public interest, by armed force if necessary. Even an aristocratic conservative like Burke recognized the need for “a temporary deviation from the strict order of hereditary succession” when the English constitution was in danger of monarchical subversion. However, this course of action is only available to men who have not been made soft and complacent by wealth and prosperity, men so unlike the present crop of whites born after WWII.

Although the concept of global economic interdependence and integration may sound appealing, in practice, these beliefs are inherently dangerous. While some free flow of goods, services and investment capital is beneficial from a market perspective, the real problem is when the economy is placed above the national interest. This makes the citizen easily replaceable. As a result, the globalists come to despise them because they are interchangeable cogs.

Neoliberal globalization is not an inevitable natural process. Like all public policies, it remains very much under the control of Western leaders. Because the sole beneficial effect of globalism is downward pressure on wages and rising cost of housing to enrich elites, it continues regardless of impact on the lives of ordinary citizens. For white advocates, this means the issue of accountability at the highest levels of government must be pressed at every opportunity.

The real disease isn’t COVID-19, it’s globalism. Once infected by this “mental pathogen,” people become just as intransigent in their beliefs as any garden-variety Christian or Muslim fundamentalist. The truth is, far from having transcended his animal instincts, man’s mind and behavior remain firmly rooted in his own biology, more than he likes to think. For this reason, all utopian egalitarian ideas must founder on the solid bedrock of human nature. Since the current Western elites refuse to take this into account, their globalist paradigm must forever remain an unfalsifiable one.

Unlike COVID-19, globalism does have an antidote: we call this antidote white nationalism. White nationalism rejects the globalist “Evangelical Church of GDP” in favor of GDP per capita, thereby increasing the individual economic well-being of whites, rather than reducing it. White nationalism replaces racial strife with racial harmony; instead of bringing a sword, it brings peace. The achievement of these goals requires white racial and cultural homogeneity in Western nations, a possibility globalists refuse to contemplate. Calling white nationalism the cure for globalism is tantamount to saying the cure for fantasy is a stiff dose of reality.

Once the pandemic is over, we can be certain it will be business as usual for the elites, which means shoveling more non-whites into the West’s already overcrowded and decaying urban centers. However, this time around, we can be certain race replacement is a cyclical process, occasionally interrupted by periods of death and destruction on a global scale. The question is how long will elites continue to expose whites to certain danger while busily electing a new people on the side. Mass democracy, mass immigration and multiculturalism—euphemisms for whites handing their countries over to non-whites—will continue indefinitely, along with the elite incompetence, willful blindness, ineptitude and rigid ideological adherence to political correctness that allows these policies to continue. For a number of reasons—scheming Jews, media brainwashing, pathological altruism, herd behavior etc.—white electorates refuse to chastise their leaders at the ballot box. If no one can stop the mass non-white immigration orchestrated by Western governments, maybe disease will.
