Survival – but to what end?

In such condition there is no place for industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain, and consequently no culture of the earth, no navigation nor the use of commodities that may be imported by sea, no commodious building, no instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force, no knowledge of the face of the earth, no account of time, no arts, no letters, no society, and which is worst of all, continual fear and danger of violent death, and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

Summary: The self‑defeating ways of Caucasians.

Entertaining‑enough movie, despite it absurd premiss, because of the mostly‑good actors who do their utmost to make us believe in it.

Yet, somehow, despite global warming, a new global ice age has transpired with only a handful of human colonies left to carry on the human race; each containing only a handful of humans. No other animal life is evident, nor is the Earth‑wide freeze ever logically‑explained.

As usual with White cinema, there is the usual inherent Caucasian belief that human beings are essentially bestial and that White civilization is self‑repressed precisely to avoid a return to a feral past (which never really existed). White supremacy is predicated on the belief that early humans were amoral and only White culture could ever possibly hold back a decline into prehistoric barbarity by its self‑repression. But it is the repression, itself, which causes such beliefs, not human nature, since repression creates the necessary fear of self required for such beliefs to fester and spread.

However, this never explains any of human progress, since it is hard to imagine people emerging from such a red-in-tooth-and-claw primitive past to create any kind of civilization if human nature were really this rotten and self-destructive.

The truth, of course, is that White people consider their own (self‑denying) natures rotten and that this new Dark Age of mankind is the inevitable result of not living in harmony with nature – despite the fact that the old Dark age was largely a European phenomenon. This inevitable White lack of historical and political perspective leads the screenwriter to simultaneously imagine the end of White culture while simultaneously positing a scientific solution to the problems White science has created since the Great Divergence.

There is no attempt to go back to a more primitive style of living as dictated by the circumstances in which the characters now live, but instead to appeal to the very scientific practices that got them where they are now, to save them from the very scientific practices that got them where they are now.

Dog‑eat‑dog and every‑man‑for‑himself has rarely been the way humans have lived on the Earth, as far as is known, so this definition of human nature is really nothing more than a definition of White nature. A nature that refuses to live in harmony with both nature and others, such that internecine conflict can be the only inevitable result – no matter what this film thinks otherwise.

There is no way for any culture to survive, in the long‑run, without a clear morality that this film and its makers clearly lack. This begs the question as to what price survival for Whites, since their desire to be top‑dog in the world, their desire to be the last men standing and their desire to live without a code of ethics can only help ensure their deaths – as individuals and as a culture. It is as if Whites are in a maze of their own making and have forgotten where the entrance is; while pretending that they never knew it. As if Whites know that they can never be top dog, since the War on Terror makes them look foolish in trying police a world they never wish to understand.

in a fit of typically-racist pique, whites have decided that if they cannot have their own way in the world (& they cannot), then that can only mean the world is unworthy of them and is, thereby and therefore, doomed to end badly.

Sleep of Reason:



The dream of reason produces monsters. Imagination deserted by reason creates impossible, useless thoughts. United with reason, imagination is the mother of all art and the source of all its beauty.

Führerprinzip:



One leader, one people, signifies one master and millions of slaves… There is no organ of conciliation or mediation interposed between the leader and the people, nothing in fact but the apparatus - in other words, the party - which is the emanation of the leader and the tool of his will to oppress. In this way the first and sole principle of this degraded form of mysticism is born, the Führerprinzip, which restores idolatry and a debased deity to the world of nihilism.
