A farmer discovered that, instead of painstakingly sorting his potatoes in such a way that the small ones were in the bed of the truck, covered by a layer of  medium sized potatoes, with the big potatoes on top, he simply threw all the potatoes onto his truck together and raced to market over a bumpy road. By the time he reached his destination, the potatoes had sorted themselves, with the small ones underneath, covered by the medium ones and the big potatoes on top. The big potatoes inevitably rose to the top. Just like people do.

99.9% of people don’t change. It’s not that people can’t change – most choose not to, and some simply cannot. For example, a sociopath can’t change. Sometimes, people are too damaged to change. And genetics don’t change; ones genetic makeup is inherited. But mostly, people are too comfortable with their entrenched choices, habits, and nature.

Quintus Horatius Flaccus (8 December 65 BC – 27 November 8 BC), known in the English-speaking world as Horace, was the leading lyric poet in Latin. He wrote, “You may drive out Nature with a pitchfork, yet she still will hurry back.” A tiger doesn’t change his stripes. You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. And no matter how many fools cultural Marxism persuades that “people are all the same,” the truth is that you may stretch an elastic band to look longer than it is, but sooner or later it will jump back to its original size. The illusion of uniformity doesn’t last – it doesn’t stand the test of time.

I challenge objective, open-minded, intelligent people to take off their fear-based, “politically correct” glasses and take a good, hard look at the overwhelming evidence presented to them by life, experience, and history before they continue to sabotage themselves by hoping, expecting, and wishing that people have or will change.

The collective cowardice and brainwashing of whites and Christians in the Western world who claim to be “tolerant, loving, and caring” is their downfall. They prostrate themselves before those who hate them and are intent on their destruction. They eagerly, willingly bow and scrape and give away their culture and heritage and wealth in order to be liked, accepted, and tolerated by savages who interpret this behaviour as weak and timid and act accordingly. Making excuses for barbarians doesn’t change anything.

Sooner or later, and hopefully not too much later, we will realize how irrational our relinquishment of our rights, our renunciation of our culture and beliefs has been, and the tide will turn. It has happened before in history with the Crusades and rebellions on a macro level and in the lives of individuals as we become older and hopefully wiser. The pendulum will start to retrace its path to the other side. At that time, sanity and perspective will return.

The cream will rise to the top. Sadly, the change is often preceded by crisis and accompanied by much strife and loss, but the losses already incurred cannot continue unabated. Nature will HURRY back.
