Written in response to Mark Twain's "Concerning the Jews"
by Sam Peyo
"In the oneness of allness, I
am, in some degree or aspect, guilty of, or infected with, or suffering from,
everything that I attack." (Charles Fort)
The question of why Jews have
been so efficient at amassing riches and controlling political and cultural life
over the centuries is most fascinating. It has not been studied much due to the
tremendous psychological/emotional barrier which has been erected to prevent any
serious approach. This barrier is an impressive construction -- more like the
Chinese Wall than a mere taboo. In fact, it is sophisticated mind control.
We are supposed to
think ill feelings against Jews are simply envy of their alleged
superior intellects. Jews are
stereotyped by every writer and movie director as impecunious, humble,
warm-hearted, peace-loving, gifted people who value their roots and are
persecuted worldwide for no clear reason or automatically used as
scapegoats every time a country faces a crisis.
Any inquiry into the real socioeconomic situation
of Jews now, during and before the two world wars causes an instant
malaise in non-Jewish conversation partners. The discomfort manifests
physically through trembling, stomach uneasiness, nervous breathing
and sweating, so it must involve deep emotional conditioning.
is a combination of fear, incredulity, scoffing, aggression and name-calling.
The person raising the issue will be branded as a Nazi sympathizer forever
("forever" because of the emotional level at which the experience is had).
If you persist with your inquiry, you may be subjected to systematic
defamation and unwinnable legal battles.
MOUNTING THE PARAPETS
I cannot prove that
Jewish success is not due to genetic, ethnic or hereditary factors. But, if we look at how
racially heterogeneous the Jewish people have become -- Jews hardly agree on
what constitutes Jewishness anymore -- it is hard to believe their
success is primarily in the genes.
Some historical and cultural
circumstances might give a better clue:
Whether Jews read the Talmud or not
(modern people greatly underestimate the importance of oral transmission), the
notion that non-Jews are ontologically inferior to Jews is
ingrained to the point of being "instinctive" among Jews (religious and agnostic
alike) and, surprisingly, even among non-Jews who ought to be unimpressed by
such a claim. Nevertheless, people who in these days flatter themselves with
even remote and dubious Jewish ancestry (whatever that means in racial terms)
very quickly adopt the chosen-people attitude.
Be that as it may, unrelenting
ambition (combined with social discretion),perseverance at work, frequent
ethical and moral disregard for the lot of non-Jews, centuries-long investment
in "white-collar" trades (with usury and banking in first place), and -- very
importantly -- a zealously guarded transnational network dating from long before
the idea occurred to non-Jewish populations, go a long way to explain the
current state of affairs.
PROMOTING SOCIAL DISSOLUTION
Maybe there is more to it. Maybe
something else is needed to explain why post-Diaspora Jews have so often been
accused of promoting social dissolution, sedition, subversion and attacks on
traditional institutions. Scholars have pointed to something called
"deviant nomadism": having temporarily become a sedentary people in
Palestine, the Jews were expelled and forced to resume their wandering, only
this time not like traditional nomads -- performing strictly
cyclical movements -- but randomly, erratically. An interesting point, or
maybe just nonsense.
If it were not for the ominous fortresses on the "Jewish Wall", it would also be interesting to make an impartial
assessment of how much of American culture is actually "Jewish" culture: comedy, theatre, cinema, music, literature and so forth. Many non-Jews find themselves
wondering: why are the best violinists, comedians, physicists, novelists and
actors apparently Jewish? I think long-time control of media outlets and banking
has given talented Jews greater access to publication, academia and
politics. Or is it the other way around? Do successful people make
up obscure Jewish foremothers overnight simply to follow suit?
There is no easy way the general
public can tell whether Jewish performers and intellectuals are really more
talented than non-Jewish artists who may have lacked the right connections
and opportunities or had too many scruples to make the necessary sacrifice of
conscience or who may have been robbed of their ideas and self-confidence
(sometimes through blackmail).
For example, Anglo-Saxon people have historically
been amazingly inventive in music, science and technology, among other areas,
but to the public their respective fields are usually identified with
some some Jewish icon, like Einstein, Bernstein, Friedman or
GOYIM INVESTED IN THEIR OWN DEMISE
In any case, as always, there are
two sides to the question of the anti-traditional influence Jews appear to
exercise in the world. Are Jews guilty of sponsoring decadent cultural
productions, of promoting atheistic world views and ideologies,
of subverting society and family? If they are, then there must be a
hundred million non-Jews on the other side who are enthusiastically absorbing
these productions, ideologies and new behaviors.
Why do we welcome messages
of evolutionism, egalitarianism, atheism, feminism, lasciviousness, mockery,
materialism and nihilism with such ravenous appetite and then complain
about the people peddling them?
