Corona Capitalism

By Ferdinand Bardamu for the Occidental Observer

The world is in the midst of another pandemic. The virus responsible, COVID-19, is a respiratory illness linked to the unsavory culinary habits of the Chinese. It was traced to a wet market in Wuhan, China, which sold rats, bats, snakes, cats, dogs and other “exotic” food items. Virologists have determined that COVID-19 is a zoonotic pathogen, meaning that it was able to jump the species barrier and infect humans. Urban overcrowding and high population mobility facilitated the spread of the virus across mainland China. Mortality statistics reveal the demographics most likely to be affected are the elderly and the immunocompromised.

How COVID-19 was able to spread so rapidly, affecting all 195 countries, cannot be fully understood without some knowledge of globalism. American political scientist Joseph Nye defines globalism as “networks of interdependence” whose “intensity, or thickness” is determined by globalization, which “refers to the dynamic shrinking of distance on a large scale.” It is this dynamic shrinking that has increased the prevalence of globalism, making us interdependent. Nye identifies four separate dimensions of globalism: economic, environmental, military and socio-cultural.[1] He attributes the influenza epidemic of 1918–1919 to returning soldiers after the end of the Great War, thereby implicitly recognizing that mass migration can devastate entire populations by facilitating the spread of infectious disease. Historically, both phenomena are closely linked. Genoese and Venetian merchants first contracted bubonic plague from Mongols and then infected the rest of Europe, killing off one-third to two-thirds of the population. The indigenous populations of the New World were decimated by diseases introduced by Europeans for which they had no immunity. Recent examples of migration-related diseases include HIV/AIDS and SARS.

In this essay, only socio-cultural globalism will concern us. This refers to “movements of ideas, information, images and of people, who of course carry ideas and information with them.”[2] It is this aspect of globalism, especially the incentivized mass movement of non-Whites from impoverished South to industrialized North, that has had―and continues to have―the profoundest impact on Western societies. It is interesting that Nye fails to make the connection between socio-cultural globalism and transmission of infectious disease, a glaring omission probably made for ideological reasons.

Since the late 1940s, globalist elites have encouraged non-Whites to uproot their lives and migrate en masse to Western countries. Nationalist policies designed to maintain ethnoracial status quos, like White Australia or the US national-origin quotas, were dismantled to accommodate the influx. This mass migration has continued without pause for decades, until now. Countries that were once 90%+ White, like the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Germany and France, have seen their White populations drastically reduced, as more and more non-Whites are resettled by elites in what used to be de jure and de facto White ethnostates. Demographers predict, often with glee, when Whites will become minorities in their own countries.[3],[4],[5] Most Western Whites, like the demographers themselves, consider the complete demographic transformation of their own nations a fait accompli, something to eagerly look forward to,[6],[7] despite the misgivings of a tiny minority of White nationalists.

The Western elites, in their zeal to reduce Whites to minorities, have seldom considered the possibility disease may end their attempt to multiculturalize the West. Their short-sightedness, stupidity and monomaniacal obsession with mass migration has apparently placed this possibility beyond the pale of globalist thinking. Again, unimpeded flows of people around the globe have always been linked to the spread of infectious disease; this is even more the case given the sheer size of the mass migrations orchestrated by Western elites. What makes the post-1960 mass migration particularly dangerous are the migrant-sending countries, which are all plagued by unsanitary dietary practices, low standards of physical hygiene and inadequate medical facilities and screening.

Given the close relationship between migration and infectious disease, it comes as no surprise that researchers have concluded the rapid spread of COVID-19 is due to mass migration. The suspected pathway of disease transmission? Chinese disease carriers flying out from Wuhan to other Chinese cities or international destinations in Europe, North America and Australia, infecting unsuspecting fellow travelers with the virus.[8] If not for globalist “open borders” and the conversion of Western countries into international economic zones, COVID-19 would not have become the worldwide pandemic it is now.

As the virus spread from China to the rest of Asia, Europe and the Americas, the casualty rate increased dramatically. According to statistics, the US has surpassed China to become the world’s disease epicenter (but this should be taken with a grain of salt, given the evidence Chinese officials lied about casualties from the disease[9]). Worldwide, there are currently 1,095,134 cases of infection and 58,791 deaths.[10] These numbers may be even much higher, since people can remain asymptomatic for weeks.

Unsurprisingly enough, world leaders were caught with their pants down. Seldom has the public witnessed so much incompetence and ineptitude from a gang of elected buffoons under the spell of a dim-witted ideology. The UK’s chief science advisor said the Boris Johnson government was looking into building up “herd immunity” by managing the spread of the virus.[11] This would have significantly increased the UK’s rate of infection and mortality. Observers thought the government’s response to the pandemic was “satire.”[12] Although initially downplaying the pandemic, Trudeau announced international traffic would be exclusively handled by major airports in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, with all passengers forced to undergo “rigorous health screening.” This apparently amounted to answering an “automated questionnaire administered by a computer touchscreen.”[13] Only Trump was able to impose travel bans on China (incomplete), Iran and western Europe, despite his earlier dismissive attitude toward the viral outbreak.

The globalist bureaucratic incompetence detailed above was due to an almost religious devotion to diversity. When combined with White racial self-loathing, it becomes apparent why mass non-White migration must continue indefinitely. Of course, given the close linkage between mass migration and transmission of infectious disease, it was only a matter of time before the world was ravaged by another pandemic.

As the crisis unfolded, governments enacted draconian measures to restrict migration flows. It was as if reality had intruded on globalist fantasies of one world under a single market. In the UK, police were granted emergency powers of arrest and detention of anyone suspected of having COVID-19;[14] later, Johnson was forced to declare a three-week lockdown as casualties mounted. Nevertheless, the UK’s borders remain wide open, even though air and train traffic are limited.[15] Despite the precautions taken, the UK continues to signal to the world that native Britons will have their noses rubbed in diversity even if it sickens and kills them. In Canada, entry was denied for most foreign travelers. The unauthorized crossing point at Roxham Rd. in Quebec, notorious for being a conduit of illegal migration, was shut down[16] (although this is disputed by some media outlets[17]). The Australian and New Zealand governments banned entry to foreign travelers, while citizens and permanent residents were expected to self-isolate for 14 days.[18] The Trump administration restricted non-essential traffic from the US-Canada and US-Mexico borders, the first time any restrictions had been imposed on cross-border traffic since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.[19] [20] Despite these measures, the window of opportunity to effectively control the virus had long since closed.

If not for local Chinese officials who ignored the early warning signs of infection, the virus would have been easily contained.[21] According to a recent study:

“[I]f interventions in the country could have been conducted one week, two weeks, or three weeks earlier, cases could have been reduced by 66 percent, 86 percent and 95 percent respectively – significantly limiting the geographical spread of the disease.”[22]

More concerning are the Western governments taken completely unawares by the disease, despite their vast economic and material resources. For months, governments stood by and did nothing while the virus raged uncontrollably in China. Instead of being proactive, the elites waited until COVID-19 became a national health crisis in their respective countries, forcing them to declare national emergencies when they realized half-hearted measures wouldn’t be enough to contain it. If only they had the foresight to act before the situation spiraled out of control, life would have remained just the same as it was before the Wuhan outbreak. The closure of schools, universities, theaters, restaurants and other large venues would have been unnecessary. The stock market would not have crashed and the economy would not be headed towards recession.

The callous disregard of elites for the lives of their own citizens can be further seen in how they prioritize the feelings of foreigners over their own citizens’ health and safety. Instead of closing the borders and grounding air traffic, they virtue-signaled about the dangers of anti-Asian racism. There is evidence this anti-racist virtue-signaling may have contributed to the spread of COVID-19. Dr. Giorgio Palù, an Italian virologist, confirms that the first victims of COVID-19 in Italy were Chinese tourists. Through “Hug a Chinese” campaigns organized by Italian officials, Italians would hug these same Chinese tourists, become infected with the virus and spread it to others. Dr. Palù concludes the reason Italy suffered as many casualties as it did was because many feared the dreaded r-word: racist. Italians who physically distanced themselves from the Chinese out of fear of contracting the virus were berated by media and politicians for “xenophobia” and “hatred.” The media also opposed calls to quarantine travelers and ban air traffic from China, predictably denouncing these preventive measures as “racist.”[23]

Ironically, social distancing and other measures, dismissed as racist only a month ago, are now needed to help contain the virus. Although Italian media ignored the connection between mass migration and spread of infectious disease, it should be pointed out Italy’s worst affected region, Lombardy,[24] is home to the country’s largest Chinatown.[25]

Like Italian media, outlets like The Atlantic had no difficulty linking border closures to protect against viral infection with “xenophobia.”[26] The Guardian said imposing travel restrictions was harmful because, among other reasons, it would “fuel racism.”[27] Since the virus has already spread to Western countries, opined the German Health Minister, closing the border would be an exercise in futility.[28] It was as if the media wanted globalist elites to continue importing as many disease-carrying Chinese as possible so more Western citizens would become infected. Although the elites were forced to abandon their commitment to globalism (temporarily) and take proactive measures, fighting coronavirus-related anti-Asian prejudice remains a top priority.

The response of Italian elites to COVID-19, of course, is not an exceptional one. The same patterns were observed in the United States, Canada, UK, France, Germany and other Western nations, where borders were left wide open because elites feared accusations of racism. Any attempt to protect oneself from the infectious disease was demonized as “xenophobic” and “discriminatory.” While China was trying to contain the outbreak, Western media outlets would drone on endlessly about anti-Chinese racism because of COVID-19, but would never mention the real reason for mass avoidance of East Asians: the high likelihood they would be infected by an easily communicable disease simply because East Asians were likely disease carriers. This had nothing to do with racism and everything to do with public health and safety.

Like Western elites, the World Health Organization (WHO), tasked with identifying and preventing pandemics, stood by and did nothing while the virus caused havoc in China. Apparently, they were paralyzed by fear of being branded racists. They were more concerned with renaming the Wuhan flu to COVID-19, to end the stigmatization of the Chinese, than the possibility lives could be lost because of infection.[29] By the time the WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11, it was already too late. Epidemiologists are now predicting worst case scenarios where the American economy falls into a depression and the death toll numbers in the millions.[30]

If only governments had invested as much time in quarantining affected areas in China as they had obsessing over racism, the COVID-19 pandemic would have been easily avoided. Precious time was squandered while politicians endlessly virtue-signaled about diversity. Instead of advising their citizens on how to protect themselves, they lectured them on the virtues of inclusivity and tolerance. They encouraged people to continue patronizing Chinese businesses, despite the fact many Chinese travel back and forth between China, the original disease epicenter, North America and western Europe, exposing themselves and others to the virus. At one point, being racist was far worse than being infected by a life-threatening pathogen; in many quarters, it still is.

Globalism is a Disease

When Western elites had a more realistic appraisal of human nature, before the 1950s, nations were run in their citizens’ best interest, not the government’s, the corporation’s or the Third World’s. With the exception of elites, globalism benefits no one. While some free flow of goods, services and investment capital is beneficial from a market perspective, the real problem is the subordination of the national interest to the world economy entailed by globalism.  Under such a regime, citizens become interchangeable, faceless cogs, members of some vast “reserve army of labor.” This is why utopian policies motivated by short-sighted economic greed and White racial self-loathing are easily prioritized by globalists over domestic well-being and stability in times of crisis. Through a combination of malevolence and naivete, elites have turned their own countries into dystopian Third World dumping grounds. Apparently the purpose of government since mid-twentieth century is to elevate the needs of foreigners above those of native-born citizens.

According to the principles of Jeffersonian liberalism, it is incumbent upon citizens to replace governments no longer serving the public interest, by armed force if necessary. Even an aristocratic conservative like Burke recognized the need for “a temporary deviation from the strict order of hereditary succession” when the English constitution was in danger of monarchical subversion. These days, the prescribed course of action has become an impossible one. The present crop of Whites is virtually indistinguishable from the stereotypical Persians of the ancient world: slavish, weak, luxurious, effeminate, dominated by women and ruled over by tyrants. Herodotus was right when he used the Achaemenid king Cyrus as a mouthpiece for the following words: “Soft lands breed soft men; wondrous fruits of the earth and valiant warriors grow not from the same soil.” This was the Greek view, borne from years of experience with the Oriental despotisms of the East. There is nothing more corrupting to one’s manhood than periods of prolonged wealth and prosperity.

The real disease here isn’t COVID-19, it’s globalism. Like a disease, it spreads rapidly, destroying everything that comes within reach. Globalism even interferes with normal cognitive functioning, replacing objective reality with childish fantasies about human nature. People under its influence cease to think logically; instead, they regress, becoming just as intransigent in their beliefs as any garden-variety Christian or Muslim fundamentalist. Of course, the Cultural Marxism is only one side of the same coin; the other side is the short-sighted neoliberal economic policies pushed by the great corporations. These celebrate growth at all costs as a virtue; this growth has become the globalist’s sole measure of societal well-being. Cultural Marxism, with its emphasis on mass replacement migration and feminization of males through gynocentric policies, is a perfect fit for neoliberal capitalism, which requires a steady supply of docile consumers in its quest to endlessly grow GDP.

Like the Christian fundamentalist who cannot understand that Genesis 1 is not a scientific cosmology, globalists cannot understand that mass migration and infectious disease go hand in hand. COVID-19 would not have spread to every country around the world if it wasn’t for the stubborn, foolish insistence of Western elites on open borders, infecting significantly larger numbers of people than would have otherwise been the case if the borders had remained tightly sealed. As a disease, globalism is far more damaging than COVID-19, if only because adherents must adopt a rigid feel-good view of the world, totally at odds with objective reality. The truth is, far from having transcended his animal instincts, man’s mind and behavior remain firmly rooted in his own biology, more than he likes to think. For this reason, all utopian egalitarian ideas must founder on the solid bedrock of human nature. Since the current Western elites refuse to take biology into account, their globalist paradigm must remain an unfalsifiable one. The attempt to force society into a non-evolutionary and non-historical mold will inevitably destroy countless lives, but like all bigoted ideologues, theory must always trump reality.

Unlike COVID-19, globalism does have an antidote: White nationalism. Like governments before the 1950s, White nationalism is by and for Whites. The globalist “Evangelical Church of GDP” is repudiated in favor of GDP per capita, since White nationalism promotes White economic and material well-being. Unlike globalists, White nationalists respect human dignity, shown by their rejection of the degrading corporate exploitation of low IQ non-White serfs, whether imported or compelled to toil abroad. White nationalism replaces racial strife with racial harmony; instead of bringing a sword, it brings peace. White nationalists, unlike globalists, respect racial and ethnic diversity by wishing to preserve it, rather than blend it all away into some undifferentiated homogeneous mass. If White SJWs genuinely want to help non-Whites, they would do well to promote White nationalism in their own countries, since a Hispanicized USA or Islamicized / Africanized western Europe will not be able to feed and clothe the world’s poor and hungry. Calling White nationalism the cure for globalism is tantamount to saying the cure for fantasy is a stiff dose of reality.

Once the pandemic is over, it will be business as usual for the elites, which means shoveling more non-Whites into the West’s already overcrowded, decaying urban centers. The question is how long will elites continue to expose Whites to certain danger while busily electing a new people on the side. Mass democracy, mass immigration and multiculturalism—euphemisms for Whites handing their countries over to non-Whites—will continue indefinitely, along with the elite incompetence, short-sighted greed, willful blindness, ineptitude and rigid ideological adherence to political correctness that allowed these policies to exist in the first place.

COVID-19 shows us that neoliberal globalization is not some inevitability. Like all public policies, it remains very much under the control of Western leaders. For White advocates, this means issues of accountability at the highest levels of government must be pressed at every opportunity. Nevertheless, for a number of reasons—whether one wants to blame scheming Jews, media brainwashing, pathological altruism, herd behavior etc.—White electorates refuse to chastise their leaders at the ballot box. If no one can stop the mass non-White immigration orchestrated by Western governments, maybe infectious disease will.
