What next?

Jim Goad's Fourth of July piece at TakiMag is worth reading if you haven't yet read it.
Goad goes down the list of the various grievances enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, and the irony is stark.
''The Declaration bemoans the fact that the King of England had blocked many of the colonies� laws, whereas today the feds� judicial henchmen routinely overrule the American electorate�s will in matters such as immigration, gay marriage, and anything else that obstructs its agenda�s steamrollering path.
The Declaration endorses such terms as "common kindred" and "consanguinity," whereas today such sentiments are confined to a despised cattle pen of cultural "extremism," but only if you�re similarly hued to the Founding Fathers. It�s a ghastly irony that America�s primary modern cultural demons are precisely the sort of people who made America.''
That last sentence is on the money. It's hard to believe that everyone doesn't see the irony there. The respectable right and even some of their brethren on the left join in the chorus praising the Declaration and the Constitution, and of course they laud the Founding Fathers, (or as some are wont to call them, 'Framers' in true non-sexist fashion). Yet these very people in the next breath will denounce 'extremists' 'racists' and the usual villains. If the 'patriots' really read the Founding Fathers' words, they might notice that the 'primary cultural demons' are just those who believe what the Founding Fathers believed.
Goad sounds very pessimistic about the future of America, and it's hard to deny that many people on our side are equally pessimistic, especially in the wake of the recent 'flash mob' violence and assorted other acts of aggression against our folk.
Goad notes that
''The Declaration complains that King George "excited domestic insurrections amongst us" and encouraged "merciless Indian Savages," whereas today the feds file their nails while violently anti-white mobs stalk urban streets. A mere five-minute walk from where the Declaration was signed, here�s what Philadelphia looks like these days. And like King George, today�s feds encourage a culturally antagonistic alien onslaught, this time from our southern border by those who, mistakenly or not, consider themselves the common kin of the aforementioned "merciless Indian Savages."
That last quote (which is very pertinent to what is happening lately) is important. Is he right that this violence is being 'excited' as was the case when the Declaration was written? I've said previously that there seems to be an intent to incite violence, and there is an undeniable pattern of officials and the media fomenting an attitude of grievance and bitterness toward Whites.
There's little denying that the border situation has been encouraged and allowed to fester, while millions of invaders enter our country unimpeded. This is what ''our'' government wants, clearly. If it were not wanted, this mass invasion, it would not be allowed. But it is allowed, and we might rightly say that illegal and legal immigrants are bribed to come here, or at least that there are many incentives for them to come here en masse, incentives which ''our'' government provides -- all the while our economy is crumbling.
The supposed 'random' violence which is occurring all over the country is increasing, though some have suggested that it is not increasing, just becoming more noticed of late. Jim Goad seems to be of the mind that it is being incited.
I'd like to hear opinions about whether or not it is incited, orchestrated, directed, or is it spontaneous and without pattern, except that it is always nonwhite against White?
And if it is being incited knowingly, or encouraged, to what end is this being done? Just for the sake of creating chaos? Intimidation? Disruption?
Goad says darkly that we deserve everything that is coming --
''And believe me, it�s coming'' he says.
I can't indulge in the temptation to be a doomsayer; it can help create a climate in which people feel helpless and despondent. I don't want to do anything to encourage that kind of feeling. It would be better to say nothing than to predict doom.
I do believe nothing is written in stone, at least from a human standpoint. We don't know what is next, because we see only part of the picture. To predict certain failure is as arrogant as predicting only good things for the future. Things can turn on a dime; change sometimes happens unseen, beneath the surface. I've lived long enough to see that happen, as it did back during the massive cultural revolution of the 70s. That was when the great pendulum swing began, wherein cultural Marxism seemed to be ascendant. But just as all good things come to an end, so do all bad things. Change is certain.
And as I've said, we have human nature on our side, while the other side has this system of high-maintenance 'political correctness' at which they must work very hard to hold back the tide of human nature.
Just as in the fable of the Dutch boy trying to seal the hole in the dike, the tide can't be held back forever.
