Alexis de Tocqueville Predicts Current Year America

Give the Frenchman credit for having Nostradamus-like power of prescience. He eerily foresaw the primary danger to established democracies like the US, and his warning echoes in the reality that exists today.

Democratic governments may become violent and even cruel at certain periods of extreme effervescence or of great danger, but these crises will be rare and brief. When I consider the petty passions of our contemporaries, the mildness of their manners, the extent of their education, the purity of their religion, the gentleness of their morality, their regular and industrious habits, and the restraint which they almost all observe in their vices no less than in their virtues, I have no fear that they will meet with tyrants in their rulers, but rather with guardians.1

I think, then, that the species of oppression by which democratic nations are menaced is unlike anything that ever before existed in the world; our contemporaries will find no prototype of it in their memories. I seek in vain for an expression that will accurately convey the whole of the idea I have formed of it; the old words despotism and tyranny are inappropriate: the thing itself is new, and since I cannot name, I must attempt to define it.

I seek to trace the novel features under which despotism may appear in the world. The first thing that strikes the observation is an innumerable multitude of men, all equal and alike, incessantly endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures with which they glut their lives. Each of them, living apart, is as a stranger to the fate of all the rest; his children and his private friends constitute to him the whole of mankind. As for the rest of his fellow citizens, he is close to them, but he does not see them; he touches them, but he does not feel them; he exists only in himself and for himself alone; and if his kindred still remain to him, he may be said at any rate to have lost his country.

Above this race of men stands an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure their gratifications and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks, on the contrary, to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing. For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness; it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances: what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living?

Thus it every day renders the exercise of the free agency of man less useful and less frequent; it circumscribes the will within a narrower range and gradually robs a man of all the uses of himself. The principle of equality has prepared men for these things;it has predisposed men to endure them and often to look on them as benefits.

After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.

I have always thought that servitude of the regular, quiet, and gentle kind which I have just described might be combined more easily than is commonly believed with some of the outward forms of freedom, and that it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the people.

Our contemporaries are constantly excited by two conflicting passions: they want to be led, and they wish to remain free. As they cannot destroy either the one or the other of these contrary propensities, they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary, and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty; this gives them a respite: they console themselves for being in tutelage by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. Every man allows himself to be put in leading-strings, because he sees that it is not a person or a class of persons, but the people at large who hold the end of his chain.

The great fear de Tocqueville harbored about American democracy was the rise of the Administrative State. He believed a vast, expansive and expanding, bureaucratic regime would spiritually enervate the nation’s citizens by stripping them, slowly and inexorably, of their agency and willpower. We would become consumerist pods attached through dopamine IV drips to an impersonal and suffocating paternalistic directorate issuing countless rules and regulations and codes of social conduct intended to relieve us, as de Tocqueville wrote, of the need to think.

Alexis de Tocqueville if he were alive today would have admired Trump, figuring him for the incarnation of a true resistance against the Administrative State; a man embodying the desperate howl for life from the broken but not yet dead soul of Heritage America.

There’s still fight in us Americans, and we’ll go down swinging if nothing else.

      DE TOCQUEVILLE: “I seek in vain for an expression that will accurately convey the whole of the idea I have formed of it… the thing itself is new, and since I cannot name, I must attempt to define it.”

      I suspect that what he’s imagining is what now we would call “Psychology”, and especially “Group Psychology”.

      But de Tocqueville seems to be describing a natural, innate, organic drift of the Group Psychology into a state of soft totalitarianism, rather than imagining a foreign race of genetic psychopaths seizing control of the culture and intentionally pushing their psychological slaves in that direction.

      In de Tocqueville’s time, the passions [and the passionate] burned themselves out so quickly – de Sade & Robespierre & Napoleon & the disastrous early 19th Century turnover of governments & political movements – that the idea of a long-term, methodical, scientific slow-boiling of the frog might not have dawned on de Tocqueville.

        Although I suppose de Tocqueville would have been intimately familiar with jesuitical nihilism, and the jesuitical penchant for seizing control of institutions & poisoning them, but the jesuits never dreamed of becoming as powerful as the Frankfurt School became in the 20th Century.

        On the other hand, for (((anyone))) already IN the Frankfurt School [or maybe thinking about formalizing the proto-Frankfurt School into the actual Frankfurt School], with this passage, de Tocqueville is handing to (((them))), on a silver platter, precisely the strategic game plan necessary for seizing control of the huWhyte Sh!tlib Insula, enslaving it, and destroying it, on a racial & societal & civilizational level.

    • Tocqueville’s famous passage is best paired with Zarathustra’s discourse on “The Last Man,” what we would call betamales. Especially since we seem to have our own flea problem among the reactionary right:

      (And thus spoke Zarathustra to the people:)

      It is time for man to fix his goal. It is time for man to plant the seed of his highest hope.

      His soil is still rich enough for it. But that soil will one day be poor and exhausted, and no lofty tree will any longer be able to grow there.

      Alas! there comes the time when man will no longer launch the arrow of his longing beyond man — and the string of his bow will have unlearned to whiz!

      I tell you: one must still have chaos in oneself, to give birth to a dancing star. I tell you: you have still chaos in yourselves.

      Alas! There comes the time when man will no longer give birth to any star. Alas! There comes the time of the most despicable man, who can no longer despise himself.

      Lo! I show you the Last Man.

      “What is love? What is creation? What is longing? What is a star?” — so asks the Last Man, and blinks.

      The earth has become small, and on it hops the Last Man, who makes everything small. His species is ineradicable as the flea; the Last Man lives longest.

      “We have discovered happiness” — say the Last Men, and they blink.

      They have left the regions where it is hard to live; for they need warmth. One still loves one’s neighbor and rubs against him; for one needs warmth.

      Turning ill and being distrustful, they consider sinful: they walk warily. He is a fool who still stumbles over stones or men!

      A little poison now and then: that makes for pleasant dreams. And much poison at the end for a pleasant death.

      One still works, for work is a pastime. But one is careful lest the pastime should hurt one.

      One no longer becomes poor or rich; both are too burdensome. Who still wants to rule? Who still wants to obey? Both are too burdensome.

      No shepherd, and one herd! Everyone wants the same; everyone is the same: he who feels differently goes voluntarily into the madhouse.

      “Formerly all the world was insane,” — say the subtlest of them, and they blink.

      They are clever and know all that has happened: so there is no end to their derision. People still quarrel, but are soon reconciled — otherwise it upsets their stomachs.

      They have their little pleasures for the day, and their little pleasures for the night, but they have a regard for health.

      “We have discovered happiness,” — say the Last Men, and they blink.

      (And here ended the first discourse of Zarathustra, which is also called “The Prologue,” for at this point the shouting and mirth of the multitude interrupted him. “Give us this Last Man, O Zarathustra,” — they called out — “make us into these Last Men! Then will we make you a gift of the Overman!” And all the people exulted and smacked their lips. Zarathustra, however, turned sad, and said to his heart:)

      They do not understand me: I am not the mouth for these ears.

      Perhaps I have lived too long in the mountains; I have hearkened too much to the brooks and trees: now I speak to them as to the goatherds.

      My soul is calm and clear, like the mountains in the morning. But they think I am cold, and a mocker with terrible jests.

      Now they look at me and laugh: and while they laugh they hate me too. There is ice in their laughter.

  2. The French have produced excellent thinkers in their day, and fierce warriors upon the battlefield. To this day, they still maintain a pussy infrastructure that is beyond most states, even if it shows signs of wear and neglect brought on by the fuggernaut. They are, after all, descendants of the Gauls, and Germanic by blood.

    To see a nation like France, the most populous Christian nation in centuries past, is truly sad. Mother Europe is crumbling, and her daughter America is becoming a post-wall tattooed and septum pierced mud shark.

    Reagan was right. This is the last best hope on earth. If we fall, there will be no place left to escape to.

Now they’re openly calling for the death of white people, setting up dichotomies where we can do no right (have an opinion, “whitesplaining,” don’t have one, “white silence is violence”), calling our DNA an abomination, designating all pro-white activism as “bigotry” and “racism,” saying that we have no culture, opposing “whiteness,” saying that we stole everything from the saintly browns, etc.

      As just one small example, a tiny number of unarmed black males are actually killed each year by the police. Yet the (((tribe))) has bombarded the groids with enough rage and grievance so they now believe — falsely — that the police are mowing down “black bodies” by the thousand daily.

      All of this appears to be the (((commissars))) whipping themselves, the white traitors, and the brown hordes up into a frenzy of rage and hate, preparatory to loosing them against the “kulaks” (i.e. all neutral or non-submissive white people) for purposes of wiping them out.

    President Andrew Jackson nails it:

    https://millercenter.org/the-presidency/presidential-speeches/july-10-1832-bank-veto

    “It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes. Distinctions in society will always exist under every just government. Equality of talents, of education, or of wealth can not be produced by human institutions. In the full enjoyment of the gifts of Heaven and the fruits of superior industry, economy, and virtue, every man is equally entitled to protection by law; but when the laws undertake to add to these natural and just advantages artificial distinctions, to grant titles, gratuities, and exclusive privileges, to make the rich richer and the potent more powerful, the humble members of society–the farmers, mechanics, and laborers–who have neither the time nor the means of securing like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their Government. There are no necessary evils in government. Its evils exist only in its abuses. If it would confine itself to equal protection, and, as Heaven does its rains, shower its favors alike on the high and the low, the rich and the poor, it would be an unqualified blessing. In the act before me there seems to be a wide and unnecessary departure from these just principles.”

Particularly in light of the giant international corporations, which have quasi-governmental, unelected coercive power (see also Tony Hovater — not only fired from his job for being a pro-white activist, but then having his donations cut off when the payment provider stopped access to the funds for political reasons).

      The international (((corporations))) are hand in glove with the commies, importing the foreign rabble to perpetually drive down the price of labor and to keep us atomized, on the move, fermented into uncertainty and chaos which leaves people isolated, helpless, and unable to band together to assert themselves.

  20. One of the tentacles of the Big State is feminism, which we all know is a harbinger of dark times (unless you’re pink collar, work in health/daycare, part of a harem).

    A conclusion I have reached is this: women themselves, for the most part, do not know what they want. If you don’t believe me, try asking them, getting into specifics, then following up with observation. Most of them declare what they want, but this is just a facade in our grrlpower era. So to think that one should find some direction and support by following the modern woman is an exercise in futility.

    This has opened up numerous other challenges for stable societies, notably how it weakens the host and allows nefarious groups to take root.

New England, Virginia and Georgia all came from different stock, have different attitudes and will develop in a different manner, for instance. His last hundred pages correctly predict what will happen to the Indians, slaves and Texians.

        The fact is, his election alone was all the toehold we needed to begin the counterrevolution, and yet “Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope.” Our faith allows us the sub specie aeternitatis, which in turn protects us from the self-devouring quality of all massive changes, given that “Revolutions eat their children.”

        The chief reason marxism failed wasn’t out of wrong-headedness — for when did ignorance ever inhibit a revolution? — but rather impatience. As Marx himself said, “The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.” Which led to “What do we want? [FILL IN THE GRIEVANCE]! When do we want it? NOW.” The impatience of the young and stupid, marking themselves for extermination in the cradle.

        The cultural marxists learned the crucial lesson and quietly bode their time to make a devastating and near-complete “long march through the institutions.” Your morale is up to you, ye of little faith. This can’t work if we burden our general with maintaining the optimism on behalf of the short-sighted. We few, we happy few — are few. There just isn’t the manpower.

        Here is an interesting related article, just looking at the credit over-extension angle (not the resources angle). It is pretty tendentious in some of its arguments but there are a few interesting historical points in there that I was not aware of.

        For example, I was not aware that Venice and Florence has achieved a monopoly on the minting of silver coinage in Europe and that forced those who wished to borrow to come to them for “real. widely acceptable money” (like the dollar today) at an unfair exchange rate.

        When in response Edward III tried to mint English silver coins, the bankers this article says – arranged a boycott of the coins on the Continent. To force him to borrow from the bankers (who were themselves, like banks today, insolvent, yet still lending!)

        I find this easy to believe because its exactly the kinds of tactics the commercial and central banks use today to squeeze us dry.

        Go to India to see how that works out.

      “The stock market keeps breaking records, and the latest gross domestic product data show that the real economy is roaring, too. The tax cut bill—despite being about as popular as North Korea—moved significantly closer to Senate passage on Wednesday, as Republican senators on the fence swallowed their doubts and voted to move it to the floor for a Thursday vote. This same tax bill will do much to gut the same Affordable Care Act that was “saved” a few months ago by three defecting Republicans. Another Trump nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals was confirmed by the Senate, meaning that Trump will have placed nine of his nominees on federal appeals courts, three time as many as Obama had placed at this point in his presidency. A federal district court has allowed Trump to place his budget director as temporary head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; the same budget director, who as a congressman, called the agency “a sad, sick joke.” Across the executive branch, industry lobbyists have been placed in charge of everything from drug pricing to environmental policy, while some of the sharpest critics of decades’ worth of trade and immigration policies are now in charge. And in Alabama, Trump’s preferred choice for the Senate, former Judge Roy Moore, has opened up a significant lead over Doug Jones in the days after highly credible accounts of sexual misconduct with teenage girls.

      All of this—and much, much more—is happening under a president who, month after month, earns the lowest job-approval ratings of any first-year president, and whose policies—from taxes to health care to immigration to the environment—are rejected by thumping majorities of Americans.

      How is this possible?

      The logic that persuaded many Republicans to stay with him last year even after the “Access Hollywood” tape—electing Trump was the only way to achieve long-standing conservative goals—has been vindicated. The evangelicals and social conservatives who saw the federal bench as the reason to stay with Trump are now seeing their fondest wishes for a sharply more conservative federal judiciary come to life, as well as a Justice Department now aligned firmly with them on matters ranging from abortion to gay and transgender rights.”

      • So when do we see all the queers and trannies going back into the closet?

        Last I heard a judge ruled Trump can’t ban transgenders from the military… not that that makes a big difference, given all the queers already in the ranks, but still…

      • In short, we’ve all pretty much agreed we can’t vote our way out of this…

        … so what makes anyone think we can legislate our way out?

        Plant? Jes’ keepin’ it real. While I like the news that all these (hopefully) right-thinking judges are being appointed, all I keep hearing about is courts shooting down The Donald on this, that, and the other.

        Besides, too many genies out of the bottle, law-wise, to ever hope of a return to normalcy, amirite?

        God’s law is gonna be the final say… and His judges don’t write no minority opinions.

  34. John Glubb:
    When I first read these contemporary descriptions of tenth-century Baghdad, I
    could scarcely believe my eyes. I told myself that this must be a joke! The descriptions might have been taken out of The Times today. The resemblance of all the details was especially breathtaking— the break-up of the empire, the abandonment of sexual morality, the ‘pop’ singers with their guitars, the entry
    of women into the professions…

  35. CH and DS keep me sane in this world. Up until 18, the way Anglin writes is how my friends and I all talked.We grew up in the last sane white decade..the 1980s.
    Now Anglin is confined to the outer limits of society. I remember normal times, the normal natural world. I cling onto those memories for sanity.

  36. Book 3, Chapter 12, end: “As for myself, I do not hesitate to avow that although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is in some respects one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked, now that I am drawing to the close of this work, in which I have spoken of so many important things done by the Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply: To the superiority of their women.”

  39. “It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd”

    This is totalitarianism. We can call it “soft” totalitarianism, if you like, but there’s nothing soft about what happens to people who break those rules – especially in places like the USA where prison rape is seen as just a regular part of the penal system.

  40. Tocqueville knew Trump-“The mental habits which suit action do not always promote thought. The world is not directed by long and learned proofs. All its affairs are decided by the swift glance at a particular fact, the daily examination of the changing moods of the crowd, occasional moments of chance, and the skill to exploit them.”
    He met in the White House with Trump 1. Andrew Jackson, found the rough man with the hard bark to be an astute judge of all his sophisticated enemies and more than a match for them.
