A Palatable Solution

1 min read

Over at Vox Day’s blog, Vox Popoli, a good discussion has been had on the fact that the past few decades (or more) have been a charade, as far as politics go.  The globalist worldview is in shambles, and continues to deteriorate. In the midst of this conversation, the estimable Tom Kratman offered his thoughts, which you can see in the screen shot above. Therein, he raises and important question, and one that I have struggled with. Some of our regular readers and commenters will agree to the veracity of that fact. Some of them have gone farther down that line than I have, to this point.
Now, this does not mean that I do not realize the possibility of no palatable solution being available. I just hold out some ray of hope that one can be found. Of course, that totally depends on how you define “palatable.” I am quite comfortable with repatriation of all non-Americans, which we have discussed before. Muslims need to be sent packing. I wholeheartedly welcome a “Big Beautiful Wall” on our Southern border.  So I do find all of that palatable.
What I hope to avoid is excessive violence to make it happen. I am no Pollyanna, expecting all sunshine and rainbows, and that these non-Americans will gladly pack up and leave. I am sure that there will be many isolated cases of violence and forced repatriation. However, I would sure like to avoid wholesale bloodshed. At this point, I find that unpalatable.
However, the situation is not static. It is a very dynamic scenario, and if those non-Americans refuse and react with violence, then we will have no choice. There comes a time when what used to be unpalatable becomes palatable.
I agree with Kratman. There is a very real likelihood that no palatable solution will present itself. If that is how the chips fall, then so be it. I just hold out some small sliver of hope that a more palatable solution can be found.
Either way, Men of the West have to be prepared for the absolute lack of palatability. If we have steeled ourselves to that unpleasant possibility, recognizing that we might have to do things we do not want to do, but must, then we will be much more efficient and effective when the time comes. And prayerfully, we will be pleasantly surprised with a better option.

  1. 99% of the immigrants arrived peacefully. I’m sure 99% would leave peacefully, too. Dry up illegal jobs and buy plane tickets back home. It wouldn’t take much more than that.
    Not that I believe anyone will do this. There’s no political will for it in this country. Even Trump seems disinterested.

  2. The longer the disease is allowed to progress, the more bitter the medicine required to cure it.
    You can deny it is getting worse, that you can live with it, or that it will go away by itself.
    “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
    Winston says good like a cigar smoker should.

  3. “I agree with Kratman. There is a very real likelihood that no palatable solution will present itself. If that is how the chips fall, then so be it.”
    Exactly right….

  4. Anyone who willfuly engages in a campaign of demographic eradication against a group knows that the group being eradicated is left with no choice but to destroy you first.

  5. Late to this thread but I thought I’d give my two cents. Yesterday the wife and I went to a metro park north of Detroit. Being a hot day it was packed with people. We were surrounded by numerous groups of people with people setting up closer and closer to us as the number of visitors rose. Nearby I could here two non-English languages being spoken: Arabic and German. The German group appears to have been mixed with some Americans included so I’d here English mixed in off and on. The Arabic speakers had some daughters wearing one piece or normal two piece bikinis so at the least they weren’t strict Muslims. Nary a word of English spoken. Not sorry at all – they need to go home. When leaving the park had to drive behind a few slow walking Arabs who decided to walk spread across the entire aisle to join a group of about twenty five others of their ethnic group (whatever it was). If it had been another ten feet it would probably have raised my ire enough to have blown the horn. Civilized and civil people recognize that you get out of the way or walk on one side – they all need to go back to their own uncivil cultural brethren. They aren’t ready for our level of civilization.
