Michigan Mess Shows Elites Don`t Care About Nation-State
Forget the legalistic hieroglyphics in which Monday`s
Supreme Court decision upholding federally
anti-white admissions policies in American
universities was wrapped. Look instead at whose
interests the decision serves, and you will begin to
grasp far more clearly why the Court belched forth this
The obvious interests the decision serves are those
of the racial minorities for whose benefit much of the
budgets of the federal leviathan are explicitly
designed, but probably the lobbies and
legal expertise of these ethnic interests would not
be sufficient by themselves to sway the Court.
What is not commonly recognized is that these are not
the only forces that possess a special interest in
preserving the "diversity" that affirmative action is
supposed to promote. General Motors and 64 other large
friend-of-the-court briefs in support of it.
As The Washington Times reported in its
coverage of the decision, "Corporate heavyweights
Coca-Cola Co., Microsoft Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp.,
and DaimlerChrysler Corp. aligned themselves with the
university" and against the majority white
population of the United States. [Race
case ruling a `victory` for firms, By William
Glanz, June 24, 2003]
Justice Sandra Day O`Connor, one of the three
Republican-appointed justices who supported the 5-4
majority decision in the case, explicitly pointed to the
importance of Big Business in affecting how the Court
The benefits of "diversity,"
she claimed, "are not theoretical but real, as major
American businesses have made clear that the skills
needed in today`s increasingly
global marketplace can only be developed through
exposure to widely diverse people, cultures, ideas, and
Grutter v. Bollinger
What skills exactly? The skills to conceive, invent,
and manufacture new technologies? To manage huge numbers
of people, assets and transactions? To market the
products of the transnational economy?
Obviously, all these skills are necessary to Big
Business, but every one of them and almost all others
are products of white, Western Man. Many in the
Third World are eager to learn these skills, but
their presence in our
industries is not needed to develop or apply them.
The claim that "diversity" is necessary for large,
transnational corporations to succeed in the global
marketplace is as much a mask as the legalistic
abstractions in which Justice O`Connor enveloped the
Court`s ruling. Nevertheless, it remains true that
Big Education and the
government itself—wants the institutionalized
discrimination against whites known as affirmative
1991, similar corporations, led by the
Business Roundtable, lobbied Congress for passage of
the expanded affirmative action provisions in the Civil
Rights bill of that year that. Yet the publicly stated
reasons that Big Business and its spokesmen offer are
not true and make no sense. What`s the real reason?
The real reason is complicated but essentially has to
do with the collective decision made by Western elites
in the latter part of the last century that the white,
Western world must vanish.
This is not a conspiracy hatched by a few freemasons
in a basement but a consensus of those who hold
institutional power in the developed world—not only Big
Business, but Big Government, Big Education, and Big
Media as well.
The reason these elites decided that the white
Western world must vanish is that they now have what is
"global reach"—they can literally straddle the
earth in the technologies of transportation,
communication, transfers of wealth, and military power.
Loyalty to and identity with any particular race,
culture or nation constitute restraints on their power
and reach, and in order to extend their power and reach
across the globe, those restraints must be undermined.
Mass immigration is one way the
elites seek to accomplish that end; affirmative
action is another. By means of the former, an entire
population and its culture are being replaced; by means
of the latter, the natural elite, the best and the
brightest, of the old population, is being pushed aside.
The new elites have thus long since disengaged
themselves from any sense of identification with or
loyalty to their own race, nation, or civilization. Of
course, most do not explicitly say so. What they say
(and have largely persuaded themselves to believe) is
that they need "diversity to compete in the global
marketplace" and are working for an "end to racism,"
"progress," "equality," "
and "harmony." But behind the cant, the jargon, and the
legalisms with which the revolution is disguised lie the
blunt realities of racial and class power.
Justice O`Connor wrote in her decision that 25 years
from now, affirmative action may "no longer be
needed." For once, she`s right. By that time, thanks
to mass immigration and the continuing deliberately
dispossession of the
white majority, whites will have been excluded from
the elites that hold political, economic, and cultural
power and will soon no longer be a majority at all.
