Aufstieg und Niedergang der Kulturen.

Gustave Le Bon hat die Entwicklung historischer Kulturen studiert und deren Entwicklung schon vor über 100 Jahren beschrieben. Wir sehen, dass auch die Entwicklung unserer heutigen westliche Kultur nichts ungewöhnliches an sich hat und sie wie alle Kulturen zuvor dem Untergang geweiht ist. Beängstigend oder hoffnungsvoll (je nach Perspektive) ist lediglich die Tatsache in welcher Phase dieser Entwicklung wir uns offenbar befinden.

Aus „Psychologie der Massen“ (1895) von Gustave Le Bon (1841-1931)

„Wenn wir in großen Zügen die Entstehung der Größe und des Niedergangs der Kulturen der Vergangenheit betrachten, so sehen wir folgendes:

Beim Erwachen dieser Kulturen einen zusammengewehten Haufen von Menschen verschiedenster Abstammung, zufällig vereinigt durch Wanderungen, Überfälle und Eroberungen. Von verschiedenem Blut, verschiedener Sprache und ebenso verschiedenen Anschauungen, hält diese Menschen kein andres Band zusammen als das halb anerkannte Gesetz eines Häuptlings. In ihrem verworrenen Haufen finden sich die psychologischen Merkmale der Massen im höchsten Maße. Sie zeigen den Zusammenhang für den Augenblick, den Heldenmut, die Schwächen, die Triebhandlungen und die Gewalttätigkeiten. Nichts ist bei ihnen von Dauer. Sie sind Barbaren.

Dann vollendet die Zeit ihr Werk. Gleichheit der Umgebung, wiederholte Kreuzungen, das Bedürfnis eines Gemeinschaftslebens fangen langsam an zu wirken. Die verschiedenen Bestandteile des Haufens beginnen zu verschmelzen und eine Rasse zu bilden, d. h. ein Aggregat mit gemeinsamen Eigenschaften und Gefühlen, die sich durch Vererbung immer mehr befestigen. Die Masse ist ein Volk geworden, und dies Volk kann sich aus der Barbarei erheben.

Es wird sie aber erst dann völlig hinter sich haben, wenn es sich nach langen Anstrengungen, unaufhörlich wiederholten Kämpfen und unzähligen Ansätzen ein Ideal errungen hat. Die Beschaffenheit dieses Ideals ist nicht wichtig. Ob es der Kultus Roms, die Macht Athens oder der Triumph Allahs ist, es wird imstande sein, allen einzelnen der Rasse, die sich bilden will, vollkommene Einheit des Fühlens und Denkens zu verleihen.

Nun kann eine neue Kultur mit ihren Einrichtungen, Glaubensformen und Künsten entstehen. Von ihrem Wunschtraum fortgerissen, wird die Rasse nach und nach alles gewinnen, was Glanz, Kraft, Größe verleiht. Zuweilen wird sie zweifellos Masse sein, aber hinter den beweglichen und wechselnden Eigenschaften der Masse wird das feste Gefüge, die Rassenseele, stehen, welche die Schwingungsweite eines Volkes genau bestimmt und den Zufall regelt.

Nach Vollendung ihrer schöpferischen Wirkung aber beginnt die Zeit jenes Zerstörungswerk, dem weder Götter noch Menschen entgehen. Ist die Kultur auf einer gewissen Höhe der Macht und Mannigfaltigkeit angelangt, so hört sie auf zu wachsen, und sobald sie zu wachsen aufhört, ist sie zu raschem Niedergang bestimmt. Bald schlägt die Stunde des Alters.

Diese unentrinnbare Stunde ist stets durch das Verblassen des Ideals gekennzeichnet, das die Rassenseele erhob. In dem Maße, als dieses Ideal abstirbt, beginnen alle von ihm geschaffenen religiösen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Gebilde zu wanken.

Mit dem fortschreitenden Schwinden ihres Ideals verliert die Rasse mehr und mehr alles, was ihren Zusammenhalt, ihre Einheit und Stärke bildete. Der einzelne kann an Persönlichkeit und Verstand wachsen, gleichzeitig tritt aber an die Stelle des Gemeinschaftsegoismus der Rasse die übermäßige Entfaltung des Einzelegoismus, die von einer Schwächung des Charakters und einer Verringerung der Tatkraft begleitet wird. Was ein Volk, eine Einheit, einen Block bildete, wird zuletzt ein Haufen zusammenhangloser einzelner, die nur noch künstlich durch Überlieferungen und Einrichtungen zusammengehalten werden. Dann geschieht es, dass die Menschen, die durch ihre Neigungen und Ansprüche voneinander getrennt sind, sich nicht mehr regieren können und danach verlangen, in den unbedeutendsten Handlungen geführt zu werden, und dass der Staat seinen verzehrenden Einfluß ausübt.

Mit dem endgültigen Verlust des früheren Ideals verliert die Rasse zuletzt auch ihre Seele, sie ist dann nur noch eine Menge alleinstehender einzelner und wird wieder, was sie am Ausgangspunkt war, eine Masse. Sie zeigt all ihre flüchtigen, unbeständigen und zukunftslosen Eigenschaften. Die Kultur ist ohne jede Festigkeit und allen Zufällen preisgegeben. Der Pöbel herrscht, und die Barbaren dringen vor. Noch kann die Kultur glänzend scheinen, weil sie das äußere Ansehen bewahrt, das von einer langen Vergangenheit geschaffen wurde, tatsächlich aber ist sie ein morscher Bau, der keine Stütze mehr hat und beim ersten Sturm zusammenbrechen wird.

Aus der Barbarei von einem Wunschtraum zur Kultur geführt, dann, sobald dieser Traum seine Kraft eingebüßt hat, Niedergang und Tod — in diesem Kreislauf bewegt sich das Leben eines Volkes.“

Just found this and love it.

Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation In Boston.

National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order. The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed widespread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.” Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition.

However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans. During a tense standoff in Lexington’s town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the radical extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops. Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

And this, people, is how the American Revolution began on April 19, 1775.

( by Ed Schriber Col. USMC (Ret.)

My take:

One has to wonder why a country founded on the concept of personal liberty and personal responsibility is increasingly one that has so little of either. And so bent on forgetting the lessons of history. As a country we have really lost our way. I support the restoration of the Republic as well as the rejection of the ‘soft-tyranny’ of the Big Brother, nanny state. We are a free people and should act and live like it without the fear or implied threat of undue government surveillance, interference, or regulation. As a loyal American it saddens me that the most divisive president in modern history has pushed such radical policies that there are now significant numbers of people who feel like they have been pushed into a corner. That there are those who believe that there may be no other choice than to repeat history is a sobering thought.

I do not necessarily share that view and nothing in this article should be construed as such. I am far more of a “propagandist” than a soldier, and I am a Restorationist, not a Revolutionary. But I do know that the actions of the current administration has increasingly radicalized large numbers of people in the country and the right to keep and bear arms is a very significant red line for many. Just as it was back then. That is something that people of all ideological stripes cannot deny and the current administration should keep in mind. Right or wrong, it is the simple truth.

One cannot be seen as significantly infringing on what is considered a fundamental, sacred, and important constitutional right by millions of people without there being some issues developing from that. Serious, if sporadic, civil unrest is not necessarily that crazy of a possibility in the future, and one could foresee a cyclical series of government overreactions to such events that would only trigger more of the same in an unfortunate downward spiral of ugly actions and reactions.

Where all this will lead is anyone’s guess, but it doesn’t look good. My crystal ball is not all that clear, and everything I’ve stated is mere speculation with observation as my guide. If widespread violence or civil disorder occurs in the Republic, the blame must be laid at the feet of the Obama administration. It is their policies that have led us to where we are today. You cannot drop a lit match on a pile of dead leaves and then complain about the resulting fire.

In many ways, we are sitting on a tinderbox with millions of people arming themselves and laying in supplies while the government does the same thing with its ever-growing ‘internal security’ forces. Nerves are on edge, and you can feel it in the air. That’s an uncomfortable feeling at best for us all, and we should not be afraid to point the finger at the culprits who has led us to where we are today.
