Read full description of the books:
It's an unflinching look at racial issues within 20th century America culminating in a damning sentencing of Affirmative Action, the modern welfare state, and all sorts of reverse racism policies that have been perpetuated in the U.S. from the Civil Rights act onward all in the name of equal opportunity and with nothing short of the best intentions. Fear-mongering within the penultimate chapter, and the possible cherry-picking of evidence concerning some various statistics aside, it's an excellent book that doesn't just target but, holistically deconstructs the big elephant in the middle of the room that everyone proverbially and casually ignores.
Taylor correctly criticizes welfare because it a provides a disincentive to hard-work, frugality, living within ones means, and making smart decisions concerning procreation. Ultimately these gubermental policies are products of various Librul delusions premised upon nonsensical and bogus ideas like the Blank Slate and Cultural Engineering. While Taylor has harsh words for the guberment because it's the progenitor of these idiotic policies and he whole-hardheartedly endorses practical conservative solutions to the problems, he doesn't go far enough in this direction. Because, ultimately, the guberment is the issue and its the modern conception of the state, vis a vis fucking Modernism, and that is what needs to be abolished.
Just as libruls abolished the conception of god and religion, being the opiate of the masses and all that jazz, so the state becomes the replacement. Instead of receiving help from your local family/community/religious organization(s) so divine intervention is replaced by the all knowing state, Big-Brother sends you a welfare check in the mail and you're on your way. The state destroys normal, organic, and local relations between people. Severing what should be normal healthy relations that were what us humans have experienced throughout most of our history, instead we are presented with a faceless deity (the state), cold patron saints that administer to our every needs (the local bureaucracy that perpetuates this cycles to it can grow to meet its own needs) and replaces the boogy-man that used to be Ha-Satan, The Devil, and Iblis (take your pick lol) with indivisible, invisible, and ultimately unfalsibiable and disprovable (this is important) boogy-men; in the case of Blacks, its Racism, in the case of Feminism, it's the Patriarchy. Illusory, impossible to disprove, and always active, what a nice neat way to blame all your failings and problems on something else, sounds like human nature at work once again.
Although he makes this statement quite early in the book and doesn't quite come back to it near the end, which basically everything else is well drawn together for a solid conclusion, ultimately, "The Free Market is the solution to racism." If good 'ole boy John, for instance, only hires white people because he's a racist, and he hires mediocre workers, ony because he shares his race. And Bob, for example, hires people merely based on skill and work-ethic (discounting race)- obviously John will go out of business and Bob's business will be doing fine. The state is the problem here, the Free Market will fix it. Too bad it's too simple of a solution for da guberment.
All these inneficient policies can't exist in a free market, they can only exist in a state to feed itself to make it grow itself. The guberment can print money out of fucking thin air, why the hell not? The overwhelming amount of money that go into these programs invariably ends up fattening the wallets of beurocrats as it filters its way down the political totem pole (see the last chapter). It's a self feeding cycle that produces nothing short of a gravy train. Of course, it's always racism, because if the issue is anything less, these cycles can't perpetuate, and minority leaders can't get all continuous guberment funding that they so greedily desire.
Finally, what Taylor also fails to mention but, implicity nails, is that this whole silly house of cards based upon the most illusory Marxist premise. Within the dank confines of Marxism, there is no individuals. It's a fucking collective philosophy at thats at the fucking root of this shit. Either you're part of the bourgiouse oppressing the proletariat, or you're the proletariat being the oppressees (is that even a words? ha ha). Either your part of the majority enjoying the institutionalized racism at the expense of the minorities, or of course, vice versa. And it's quite diametrically opposed to the truth, we're fucking individuals. Yup.
To quote one of my many heroes, Ludwi Van Mises, "Only the individual thinks. Only the indivual reasons. Only the individual acts." And as Taylor demonstatres throughout his tract, many blacks are unhappy with these poolicies and want to placed in higher positions based on merit alone, not because of some quotas. And these is where Jared makes his most damning point, that at the end of the day, the modern welfare state and Affirmative Action as insulting to Blacks. It's insulting to say they can't achieve anything on their own and that they require the state to baby them along, treating them as less than the autonomous human beings they are.
So sleepy. I'll edit all my spelling mistakes tmrw lol.
