Krieger: People Are Devolving Into Degeneracy And Violence – Don't Join The Club

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

The wayfarer,
Perceiving the pathway to truth,
Was struck with astonishment.
It was thickly grown with weeds.
“Ha,” he said,
“I see that none has passed here
In a long time.”
Later he saw that each weed
Was a singular knife.
“Well,” he mumbled at last,
“Doubtless there are other roads.”


– Stephen Crane, The Wayfarer

When times get tough people can unite and fight back against a common enemy, or they can be manipulated into fighting each other. Unfortunately, the latter has become increasingly popular amongst all sides in what has become an increasingly deranged, adolescent and counterproductive political environment.

Meanwhile, the people who are truly powerful, the oligarchs of industry and their bought and paid for political minions are the ones who really benefit. The primary purpose of this website from the very beginning has been to highlight how power actually functions in imperial America with the hope that people across the political spectrum could unite and push back against the unaccountable rent-seeking practices of a common enemy. It seems I was extraordinarily naive.

When a writer and thinker such as myself is forced to admit failure, it’s a very tough pill to swallow. Writing this blog is in many ways a thankless task. I’m essentially doing volunteer work day in and day out because I passionately believe in the ideas I put forth, and to see them have little to no effect on the public debate can be very depressing. Rather than seeing human beings unite to throw off the predatory shackles that bind them as I had hoped, I see people who should be coming together punching and yelling at each other in the streets — and that’s on a good day. On bad days, people are getting shot or run over, from Virginia to London. Watching all this madness unfold while the truly powerful sit back and grin, more secure in their positions as ever before thanks to rabble fighting each other, sometimes makes me want to just stop doing this writing thing. After all, what’s the point?

But I know better. I know that karma, or action, is not about the fruits of your work, but the action itself is everything. I discussed this concept at length in the post,Do Ends Justify the Means? Here’s an excerpt.

Unfortunately, many people don’t have any principles to begin with and simply live their lives in the pursuit of their own superficial, materialistic or egotistical goals. These are the types of people who most often employ “ends justify the means” thinking, which is exactly why those of us who do have principles must reject this way of thinking and pursue a more conscious manner of achieving our ends. If that means our ends aren’t achieved in our lifetime that’s something that must be accepted. The means we use will reverberate in the universe forever and will benefit the world whether we’re able to point to definitive results or not.

As much as I understand the above to be true, it doesn’t make staring at the world devolving around me any easier. However, it does provide me with the moral fortitude to stick to my principles even if nobody is listening or cares.

If any of what I’ve written so far speaks to you, let me share a few thoughts I wrote down the other night while lamenting the mounting degeneracy that seems to be multiplying in society at large.

What I see out there is ugly. Really ugly and it’s coming from all sides. There seems to be this perverse ascendent philosophy (if you can call it that) to act as depraved as your perceived enemy. I think that’s the worst possible response and can only lead to one thing. More depravity.


I don’t consider myself particularly enlightened, but I’ve come to a few realizations and perhaps the most important one of all is to always try to be better. Look for your better nature and try to follow it. While I certainly don’t always live up to what I want to be in my language or commentary, I understand that when you stay true to your better self you are much happier and content. It’s better for you, it’s better for your relationships and it’s better for the world.


Many people seem to be losing sight of the big picture while focusing on petty arguments and fame obsession.


Picking holes in other people is easy, working on yourself is much harder. But it’s so much more important.

I wrote this post for myself as much as I did for my readers. I hope it connected with some of you, and helps you stick to your better nature as things get uglier around us. The healthy response to others getting worse, is not to imitate them, but to try to be better.

should really keep out of the cities during ramemdown

They told people they're descended from animals, and now they're shocked when people actually act like animals.

jadan's picture

Stop shtting on the animals. Everything was fine until humans showed up. And things were still fine until religion raised its ugly head. Human life has been miserable ever since. And these two-legged maniacs blame the animals!

moimeme's picture

You must be one of them animals. Blaming everyone and everything. If you hate humans that much, go live in the jungle. They don't have internet and comment sections there. Christian western civilization brought you those.

Oooooh, buuuuurn! That'll teach him.

Oooooh, adding value to the discussion, are you luky?  Not hardly...

"Don't join the club".

Yes, indeed.  For starters... watch NO television... listen to NO popularly-produced "music"... and go to NO movies produced in Hollywood.  It's like a cleansing fast when one does this.  If you reject these rivers of soul-destroying poison, you'll soon come to realize that you're missing NOTHING - and a new wholesome realm of life will open up to you.

All valid points.

However, until KEBAB IS REMOVED, it's not much use.

Communists, socialists, and Marxists are the enemy. They brought kebab to our doorstep.

The people can't come together, because some of the people like their shackles and want everyone to wear them.

They cannot be reasoned with.

And even beyond that, the leftists view us taking the high road as a sign of weakness.

One of the best recent comments I've heard was from Tommy Sotomayor: "Bill Maher shouldn't lose his job for saying nigger. He should lose his job because Paula Deen lost HER job for saying nigger." And he's absolutely correct.

Bigly's picture

He says it is bad on all sides.

I disagree. Primarily it is violence coming from the left, primarily from the statists, primarily from bought and paid for traitors.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...

Scientific thought and capitalism helped, too. After all, there have been plenty of opportunities for Christianity to lean towards some kind of socialism.

If I could put what I think the real threat is in one sentence, it would be this:

Psychopathic opportunists in influential positions use postmodernism and racism to create radicalized and noisy extremists to polarize the population to the point that any kind of coherent direction towards exploring improving society while maintaining the rights of the individual is nearly impossible.

Humans are the purpose of this planet. Its future is dust, ours- some of ours- is not. hahahahaha



Star Wars - The Force theme [1 hour loop]
Killdo's picture

exactly - religion is the mother of all totalitarianism (and the original enforcer of fraud)  and the inventor of all the dirty tricks still used on sheeple to keep them fearful, divided and submissive.

Nothing will change until people stop training (through what's basically child abuse) their kids to fear invisible 'friends', believe fantastic lies (that you can live after you die , give birth as a virgin and other crap) and not to 'eat' from the Tree of Knowledge - i.e. learn useful things about reality) . The invisible Big Brother only wants you to know about his dogma and lies - any othe rknowledge is punishable (even if you learn unintentionally - as Adam did by eating the apple he did no tknow he was about to eat). What a bunch of totalitarian slavish BS . 

No wonder there are so many slavish braindead sheeple all over the country


economicmorphine's picture

My "invisible friend" gave me a system that works remarkably well and has served mankind pretty damn well since the dark ages.  Get rid of him and what's left?   Nothing.  That's the beauty of life.  What appears to be real isn't, and what appears to not be real is.  Maybe you'll get it someday.  Maybe not.  Regardless, you sure are angry for someone who pretends to be so fucking enlightened.

What most religions at their cores attempt to teach regarding living a life worth living is admirable and inspired. However and unfortunately, some use religion as a way to exercise their ego and their desire/need for power. Spiritual growth in many organized religions takes a back seat to ritual and the original message is lost.  Many wars have been fought in the name of religion.  Pointing these things out doesn't make me evil nor does it automatically mean that I don't try to live a life worth living according to spiritual principals.

Progressive liberal democraps are the meanest nastiest hypocrite disrespectful intolerant divisive turds on the face of the earth Fukemall

nmewn's picture

Just look at that fucking idiot up top, humans are a part of "nature" and he wants us gone for "the animals"? 

He should jump all badass onto a lion and end his mental suffering.

I'm pretty sure my words could convict me of manslaughter-suicide (whateverthefuck that is!) in the state of Massachusetts for that but its true, people like him are the problem. 

Lions will kill you graveyard dead just because. 

Only a minority of humans will kill you without cause ;-)

You're a fine example of what the article is about.

Oh yes you will, and the alt light cucks wont be there to protect you.

The ultimate protection is a teddy bear and a candle during ramemdown.

Don't forget the 'safe space' and free counseling to go with it. And 'safe spaces' are all equipped to deal with binary gendering and offer you three restrooms:

1) "Mens";

2) "Womens"; and,

3) "Other."

I just don't see much worth fightin' for any more

When good men become apathetic evil flourishes.

If you live in a liberal city, then there isn't anthing worth saving.  Get out in the rural areas and people are great and civil.

Hopefully welfare will be unpayable soon and we can watch the hordes of niggs/spics/muzzies kill each other off.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Good guys finish last.

Remember Seth Rich.

He wasn't a good guy, he was a pissed off Bernie Sanders disappointed communist. Don't forget the important shit.


Portland stabber? VA shooter? Seth Rich? Chicago Trump rally rock/bottle throwing invaders? Not good company.

  I am gonna go with pop a cap in their ass and move on with life.

countryboy42's picture

Wound 'em, and they sue, go for center mass. 

serotonindumptruck's picture

And empty the magazine at them. Every last round.

When the case goes before a grand jury, as it likely will, the jury will be unable to determine which round was ultimately fatal.

This legal conundrum has precedent.

After all, you were in fear for your life.

countryboy42's picture

Too many rounds, and they will burn your happy ass. Over aggression, or some happy horseshit. There is a reason I carry 15+1 and 2 spare mags of 10mm.

serotonindumptruck's picture

You contradict yourself.

Why would you carry so many rounds while having no inclination to use them to stop a threat on your life?

countryboy42's picture

I am thinking mutiple targets. Usually,l idiots hunt in packs. If given the chance, divide the pack, and roll up one at a time.

Our overly complex society is slowly falling apart ... and the speed won't be "slow" forever. Soon, cascanding systemic failure will be the norm. You think you've seen crazy so far? - most have no clue.

TheLastTrump's picture

Yes, this. People are helpless without fucking Google. What's in your minds, bookshelves, hands, wallets, safes, pantries?

SidSays's picture

Depends on who's fighting who...

...and why....

Be wise as serpents....

....Innocent as doves....

...and when working latrine duty

always wear goggles and gloves.

serpents are wise because they always leave themselves a bolt hole....


doves are harmless because they have no bile gland, they have no 'bitterness', bile (think 3 am pizza/beer night, that shit that got in your throat that burned

Liberty Blitzkrieg doesn't want to fight this enemy huh?.. That's some blitzkrieg for liberty..
