The democratic process relies on the assumption that citizens (the majority of them, at least) can recognize the best political candidate, or best policy idea, when they see it. But a growing body of research has revealed an unfortunate aspect of the human psyche that would seem to disprove this notion, and imply instead that democratic elections produce mediocre leadership and policies. - "People Aren't Smart Enough for Democracy to Flourish, Scientists Say," by Natalie Wolchover, LiveScience
Why is the right rising?
We reject equality.
You either look at the world through yourself, or in the big picture.
The latter is for conservatives: we care how things actually work.
Liberalism, starting in 1789, has been a descent into human narcissism.
The world is turning right as we realize that democracy is a dead-end path to total Nanny State/Corporate control.
Who should rule?
The Highly Sensitive Person has always been part of the human landscape. There's evidence that many creative types are highly sensitive, perceiving cultural currents long before they are manifest to the mainstream, able to take in the richness of small things others often miss. Others may be especially sensitive to animals and how they are handled. They're also the ones whose feelings are so easily bruised that they're constantly being told to "toughen up."
Today, science is validating a group of people whose sensitivity surfaces in many domains of life. Attuned to subtleties of all kinds, they have a complex inner life and need time to process the constant flow of sensory data that is their inheritance. Some may be particularly prone to the handful of hard-to-pin-down disorders like chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Technology is now providing an especially revealing window into that which likely defines them allâa nervous system set to register stimuli at very low frequency and amplify them internally. - "Sense and Sensitivity," Psychology Today
Remember the wise words of Arthur Schopenhauer:
"Plato had something of the kind in mind when, in the fifth book of his Republic, he explained his plan for increasing and improving his warrior caste. If we could castrate all scoundrels and stick all stupid geese in a convent, and give men of noble character a whole harem, and procure men, and indeed thorough men, for all girls of intellect and understanding, then a generation would soon arise which would produce a better age than that of Pericles."
In another context, Schopenhauer reiterated his antidemocratic-eugenic thesis: "If you want Utopian plans, I would say: the only solution to the problem is the despotism of the wise and noble members of a genuine aristocracy, a genuine nobility, achieved by mating the most magnanimous men with the cleverest and most gifted women. This proposal constitutes my Utopia and my Platonic Republic". Analysts (e.g., Keith Ansell-Pearson) have suggested that Schopenhauer's advocacy of anti-egalitarianism and eugenics influenced the neo-aristocratic philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, who initially considered Schopenhauer his mentor. - "Arthur Schopenhauer," Crowdist Group Blog
The left got by for 200 years by calling us racist, elitist, sexist, etc. It was all nonsense.
Their fear is that the return of sanity will come.
A sanity which ranks some above others, and restores natural selection and a sanctity of life.
They fear it, because they are corrupt inside.
It's time to purge them and in their place, put a functional and realistic conservative Empire.
