“Shiny Happy People” is the name of a song by the soft-rock group REM from the early 1990s that mocked America’s fake-happy culture. And what a fake-happy society it is! Practically every White American in this age of “selfies” has mastered the art of the perma-fake smile for photographs and videos. Television shows with studio audiences feature beaming hosts and audiences that are furiously clapping on cue like well-trained seals that have imbibed a dozen cups of coffee. Commercials are similar, always acted by United Nations casts who are incredibly happy as they bite into their favorite candy bar or go into debt for six years to purchase a car. What a happy and content face America presents to itself and the world!
Look at pictures from several generations ago. Most Americans had a normal non-smiling look on their faces, and often times even a stern appearance. East Europeans and Russians still often present a somber expression when having their pictures taken. That outward serious look is one of the reasons Americans with their ever-present fake happy faces fear them, yet when Eastern Europeans and Russians warm up to someone they are among the warmest and friendliest people to be found anywhere, as they smile and laugh when it’s natural to do so rather than always presenting a fake exterior.
Perhaps Russians and Americans of past generations had more of a genuine connection to life and its tribulations and felt no need to constantly smile at certain times whether they felt like smiling or not. Yes, in most cases it’s more pleasant to see someone smiling than not, but in the case of White Americans, the fake happiness also seems to cover the emptiness and frustration of the pointless rat race that so many waste their life pursuing.
Are today’s White Americans truly more content and happier than those of past generations? Not when the smiling mask is removed. Aggression and hostility is widespread on the nation’s roads, with many men drivers in particular seemingly always a hair-trigger away from engaging in road rage. Only the fear that the “offending” driver is armed prevents road rage on a massive scale.
A stranger showing kindness, or any kind of “weakness” to another stranger, is almost unheard of in most areas. An ever alert wariness is the standard m.o. when walking about in unfamiliar places and even many familiar ones. Even in neighborhoods, many mothers have been indoctrinated to think that child kidnappers and rapists are lurking everywhere; the ongoing demonization of White men has resulted in a White man by himself, minding his own business, being regarded with barely veiled suspicion wherever he goes. Men are even increasingly prohibited from sitting next to children they don’t know on plane flights.
Forced multiculturalism at the point of a gun is a major cause of the problem, but even if by some miracle America were to suddenly become the roughly 90% White, 10% black nation it historically was until the 1965 Immigration Act was passed, after a half century of cultural communist indoctrination, Whites would still regard each other with great mistrust. After all, in most cases American families used to be close, including extended ones. Now more and more it’s routine for various family members to have disowned various siblings and even parents, or to be estranged from their entire family. And men and women are being taught to regard each other as rivals, even enemies, rather than as partners who complement each other.
Inner happiness is what counts, and the fake smiles all around cover up the lonely and desperate lives so many lead. There is no sense of community anymore in America, no shared purpose. Sure there are still many neighborhoods where people take the time to get to know their neighbors and look out for each other and there are still a lot of people with good hearts who try to follow the Golden Rule, but that number is diminishing and will continue to diminish as one place after another is forced to “enjoy” the poisonous fruits of multiracialism, along with the general selfishness, greed, atomization, and extreme materialism that characterizes American life.
A society with weak families is a failure. A society where there is widespread distrust and cynicism is a failure. Only homogeneous societies with Nationalist leaders are capable of succeeding. The Hollow Empire of the Washington/New York/Hollywood Axis is the greatest and most dangerous failure in world history, and must be replaced if men are again to be free and not spiritual and financial slaves in perpetuity.
