Myth of the 20th Century

Known for his prolific output and incisive analysis on the culture war and broader struggle facing Europeans and Americans, the Z Man lives close to Washington and knows all too well the insider nature of the power elite that rule over us. Tonight he joins us for a discussion of the ‘great chain of causality’, what to realistically strive for in a declining empire, and a way forward that brings more people together with a positive identity and a shared purpose.

The rise of the Private Military Contractor, or PMC, may seem like a recent phenomena, but the tradition of hiring mercenary armies is an ancient one. These enigmatic ‘soldiers of fortune’ wear no flag, offer seemingly little loyalty to anyone other than the highest bidder, and operate globally using the latest in military hardware and techniques - all under the cover of secrecy when doing their job right.

Written in the wake of modern mankind’s worst violent cataclysm to date, the Great War, Lothrop Stoddard’s ‘The Rising Tide of Color’ noted the sharp decline of European civilization and the breaking of its dominance over the colored world it had held since the advent of colonialism in the 15th century. Stoddard went on to predict the further deterioration of the white world’s relative standing in the years to come, as the rise of Asia and the utter annihilation wrought upon Europe in the Second World War paved the way for final decolonization and the rise of a new world order that saw white supremacy and even race aware thinking such as Stoddard’s deemed anathema.

Invention is often described as 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. In the high-flying game of venture capital, where the stakes are in the billions of dollars and the competition is on a global scale, the odds for true invention are even longer. Words like innovation are often bandied about, with recent entrants like ‘disruption’ taking a more aggressive spin on the culture of Silicon Valley, but the true success stories, while building on the backs of some genuinely breakthrough developments such as the microprocessor and the personal computer, have given way to more derivative works such as scrapbooking on a website (Pinterest) and taxi cabs on a smartphone (Uber.) Venture capital, originally a term connoting ‘adventure’, has turned into something much more mundane, short-sighted, and in many ways a sign of the times of diminished expectations and reduced ambition.

International arms smuggling is one of those businesses that captures the imagination of authors and Hollywood producers alike, conjuring images of suave but savvy businessmen in sharply pressed suits sitting in cafes in some European resort town hammering out three simultaneous interconnected deals on their satellite phone. Figures like this have and do exist, yet the illicit trade in arms is but a shadow of the defense contracting industry that supplies much of the world’s major militaries with their weapons, the United States first among them, to then only be sold off at steep discounts to the secondary market, which inevitably finds its way into the hands of smaller nations, guerrilla armies, and those with a penchant for military hardware in a business or part of the world that demands they maintain an extra degree of finality in their stride.

You had questions, we attempted some answers. It’s been about a year since we last did a Q&A, and since then we’ve broken 10,000 subscribers, been tossed off of YouTube, and witnessed the slow devolution of yet more of the American Empire. We’re also very fortunate to have an audience smart enough to know all this, yet still have incisive and thought-provoking questions that challenge our assumptions and hopefully make the round table that is Myth of the 20th Century part of a greater community of those that dare to tread where the system seeks to keep off limits.

If you look at the mainstream news today, one gets the distinct impression that the planet is headed for a cataclysmic environmental shift driven by the earth’s changing climate. What you will not hear, however, is that this shift may very well come from cooling of the planet by reduced solar activity, and not the warming that most climate alarmists are warning of due to anthropogenic (man-made) emissions of greenhouse gases. In ‘Twilight of Abundance’, scientist David Archibald reviews the evidence over the last several thousand years, and comes to the conclusion that our current age is an interglacial one, which if historical patterns hold true, will revert to a period of glaciation and cooling that will bring catastrophic down-pressure on earth’s carrying capacity for life as the sun goes into a period of lower radiative activity.

In democratic republics such as the United States, power is officially held by elected officials who are supposedly held to account by the electorate. In one of his last speeches, however, US President John F. Kennedy warned the public against shadowy forces who hold power by operating through secretive networks. Shortly thereafter he was assassinated. Allen Dulles, the man who had been recently dismissed from the CIA by Kennedy, was a 33rd degree Freemason, and found himself on the Warren Commission overseeing the investigation into the President’s assassination. Secret societies such as the Freemasons, and in particular those based out of the elite Ivy League schools such as Skull and Bones, have had a long history of power in the West, forming a cabal of rulers that no matter the elected party, always seem to have a member at the table.

Built in the depths of the Great Depression, the Hoover Dam rises over 700 feet along the canyon walls of the Colorado River. Originally named the Boulder Dam and officially begun in 1933 after decades of contentious debate over the feasibility of such an ambitious project, the dam opened in 1936 as the largest hydroelectric facility in the world. Responsible for powering cities all throughout the southwestern United States, as well as controlling water for flood mitigation and agricultural use, the engineering and architectural wonder has attracted nearly a million tourists a year and stands as a testament to the capacity of a nation that commits itself to great works that they are possible if the will exists.

A civilization’s state of development is most often readily apparent in its buildings. The capacity for stepping beyond the limits of nature, and forging into the realm of modernity is enshrined in the time capsules that are major works of architecture and infrastructure. When historians and anthropologists trace the path from pre-historic societies to today, they invariably look to the quality and sophistication of their earth, stone, and rock monuments that serve as milestones in their journey to today. What has consistently stood out is the importance of water infrastructure in all great civilizations, from the flooded terraced farming techniques in Chinese rice fields to the Roman aqueducts. Upon examining America, one notices the astonishing amount of decay that has set in to its water management system, from municipal water contamination in Flint to the breaking of sewer lines in Seattle, raising the question if any of this will even be around to examine for future generations once the final proverbial dam breaks.

James LaFond, author, fighter, and anthropologist of all things urban and unseen by the aspirational and increasingly disconnected bourgeois classes of American cities rejoins the crew tonight for a much overdue conversation. Since we last spoke James has traveled and lived in various cities across the country, spent a night on the streets of Manhattan, and even managed to train a few listeners to the podcast on hand to hand combat and mixed martial arts. Always insightful and a pleasure to talk to, James remains one of the most honest and perceptive members of the growing class of people looking up at the decaying mass that is Western civilization and wondering if their time might be better spent maneuvering horizontally rather than vertically.

Representing 2-7% of the Pentagon’s annual budget, and with a projected lifetime cost of over $1 trillion dollars, the Joint Strike Fighter program with its three variations of the F-35 airframe for the US Air Force, Navy, and Marines and over a dozen partner countries is the most expensive weapons system in history. For point of contrast, World War II cost the United States an inflation-adjusted $4 trillion, and was finished in four years, less time than the initial phases of development for the JSF, which has taken over 20 years. Critics of the program are numerous, but when faced with the choice of scrapping the program and potentially having to spend even more money versus attempting to fix what is already existing, the US government has decided to stay the course. Tonight we are joined by a former Lockheed employee and F-35 representative to discuss why the program has run into so many problems, what could have been done better, and how this fits into the overall war fighting capability of the United States and its allies.

Fiction writers today have a plethora of options for getting their stories out, from e-books to streaming video to old fashioned print. But the challenge of capturing people’s imagination, in addition to slipping through the ever-tightening electronic net in an age of censorship has made the task of right-leaning authors all the more difficult in the modern era. Tonight we are joined by our good friend Ethnarch for a special ‘After Dark’ episode to talk about the speculative fiction, sci-fi and fantasy genres and the importance they bear on the broader front of the culture war.

“Spetsnaz has no distinguishing badge or insignia - officially, at any rate. But unofficially the spetsnaz badge is a wolf, or rather a pack of wolves. The wolf is a strong, proud animal which is remarkable for its quite incredible powers of endurance. A wolf can run for hours through deep snow at great speed, and then, when he scents his prey, put on another astonishing burst of speed. Sometimes he will chase his prey for days, reducing it to a state of exhaustion. Exploiting their great capacity for endurance, wolves first exhaust and then attack animals noted for their tremendous strength.. The wolf also has a powerful intellect. He is proud and independent. You can tame and domesticate a squirrel, a fox or even a great elk.. But you cannot tame a wolf. The wolf lives in a pack, a closely knit and well organized fighting unit of frightful predators. The tactics of a wolf pack are the very embodiment of flexibility and daring. The wolves' tactics are an enormous collection of various tricks and combinations, a mixture of cunning and strength, confusing maneuvers and sudden attacks. No other animal in the world could better serve as a symbol of the spetsnaz.” -Victor Suvorov, Spetsnaz - The Inside Story of the Soviet Special Forces

Viktor Suvorov, author of over a dozen books on the inner workings of the Soviet military apparatus, from the Red Army to the Spetsnaz, put forward the earth shattering thesis in his work ‘Icebreaker’ that Hitler’s invasion of the USSR in 1941 was a pre-emptive strike designed to cut the legs out from under a Russian military machine that was gearing up to invade Europe and then the world. Although highly controversial in places like America, where the people are taught from birth about the triumph of WWII and the necessity of the conflict against Nazi Germany, Suvorov’s thesis has garnered much acclaim in many parts of Europe and even Russia, where the proximity to the reign of terror imposed by the Soviet regime still echoes and people look to explain why the allies seemed to unite with one of the most deadly empires the world has ever seen.

In 1932-33, upwards of 10 million people perished in a widespread famine throughout the Ukraine. Estimates vary, but the staggering death toll is undeniable. The causes are debated intensely by various factions, citing reasons ranging from politically motivated intentional starvation to horrible mismanagement of collectivized farming. But what remains notable is the relative lack of awareness of the events, in contrast with the Holocaust. The Holodomor, or “Death by Starvation”, was easily just as great a tragedy as any other, but perhaps more so, because of the silence surrounding it.

The American Dream for most during the Great Depression became more of an exercise in holding on than striving for greatness. But to those recent arrivals in ethnically segregated neighborhoods such as New York and Chicago who sought to get a piece of the action, they found power flowed to those most willing to use their wits, acts of violence, and above all else organization to seize control of lucrative trades in illicit goods such as alcohol in the era of Prohibition. These organized crime operations, led by men such as Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano, and Bugsy Siegel became linked by their enforcement operations known as Murder, Inc., and more broadly as The Syndicate.

— Timeline —

1900 – The Bloody Gennas Brothers create the ‘Black Hand’ network, an early criminal syndicate focused on extortion and smuggling rackets in the Chicago area. This network creates much of the impetus for greater Italian criminal consolidation in the following decades.
1919 – Arnold Rothstein, an integral Jewish gangster in the NCS network, helps to fix the World Series game to his own financial benefit, creating a reputation as a cutthroat businessman willing to use whatever means to make money.
1920 – The Volstead Act, otherwise known as ‘Prohibition’, comes into national effect across the United States, banning the sale and distribution of alcohol.
Mid-1920’s – Several criminal networks, predominately Jewish and Italian, begin investing in breweries or cereal plants to expand their beer manufacturing output, launching the ‘Beer Wars’.
1924 – North Side Gang and Al Capone’s Chicago Outfit launch a five-year war with one another, after the assassination of Dion O’Bannion. By the end of the conflict, Capone had fully subsumed Chicago criminal activity and was directly squaring off against Chicago law enforcement, most notably Elliot Ness.
1929 – St. Valentine’s Day Massacre transpires as Capone orders a massive assault on several members of the North Side Gang, including their leader Bugs Morgan. The opposition to Capone crumbled after this attack, although public support for tougher law enforcement efforts against the mob rose immensely.
1929 – Major mob bosses and crime families from several eastern and Midwest cities converge onto Atlantic City to develop ‘The Commission’, or the corporate structure that would form the basis of the National Crime Syndicate.
1930 – By 1930, nearly every major American city west of Texas had developed a powerful NCS-linked structure, from Tampa Bay, Florida to Providence, Rhode Island. Increasingly, criminal activity was becoming a solely Jewish/Italian endeavor.
1935 – Thomas Dewy is appointed special prosecutor for the county of New York, beginning a brief age of rapid NCS deterioration at the hands of law enforcement efforts.

After living through the hard times of the Great Depression and WWII, America in the 1950s was poised for the era of mass consumption, enjoying unprecedented access to inexpensive air travel and leisure opportunities. Chief among these new destinations was Las Vegas, with visits rising from in the tens of thousands per year in the 1930s to over 40 million by 2015. But obscured by the glitz of the Vegas Strip and the glamour of the show girls lay a new hub for an international criminal enterprise whose reach extended into drug trafficking, money laundering and extortion with extensive ties to the US government itself. Despite efforts to break up organized crime by ambitious US senators and prosecutors, the corruption of the Syndicate had penetrated so deeply into the institutional power of the United States that criminality for those at the top became more and more intertwined with those on whom they sought to pin the blame.

1933 – Prohibition ends with the repeal of the Volstead Act, ending many of the lucrative revenue sources for the growing crime syndicate.
1938 – Meyer Lansky travels to Havana, Cuba to formalize a relationship with the island’s military dictator, Batista. The gambling businesses of Cuba quickly fall under the control of the crime syndicate.

1947 – Flamingo casino opens in Las Vegas, marking a new era of syndicate-driven casinos in America.
1950 – Kefavuer Hearings begin preliminary hearings and research, with Senator Kefavuer launching a national investigation into the crime syndicate’s domestic activities across 14 states. The testimonies of over 600 are undertaken, including several major mobsters from the era.
1957 – Johnny Roselli, a Hollywood based member of the Chicago Outfit, moves to Las Vegas and begins hustling in the casino business.
1960 – Operation Mongoose, a Eisenhower-era CIA program, begins operations. Not long thereafter, Johny Roselli is approached by Robert Maheu (working for billionaire Howard Hughes and the CIA) to introduce Maheau to members of the Syndicate. Angry over the loss of their business in Cuba, Syndicate power-players such as Giancanno, Traficante, and Lansky.
