Though talk about crumbling patriarchal societies is normally limited to Muslim countries, a similar process is taking place in America. The redneck majority was parochial, openly racist, and anti-Semitic just forty years ago. In the span of a single generation, tremendous changes took place. “Normal” families left the cities for the suburbs. Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean enemies became friends and immigrants. Homosexuals got married. Blacks gave the country a president. Jews took control of the economy, media, and the Senate.

Though the American majority’s mindset falls beyond my area of expertise, I imagine they should behave like Arabs. In the sea of change they need some firm values connecting them to the days of old. Anti-Semitism is just such a value.

Unlike other hatreds, anti-Semitism remains politically correct if one dresses it in anti-Israeli garb. This reveals an immensely important tendency of liberal societies. They have demolished natural lines and differences inside the society, but human nature demands enemies. Such enemies are found abroad. Liberal societies are therefore extremely aggressive on the international scene. This tendency not only harkens back to Classical Greece and Ancient Rome with their incessant wars, but also applies to Napoleonic France and the contemporary United States. Arguably, a similar tendency worked in the Soviet Union—though not liberal, it also homogenized society by suppressing dissent rather than legalizing it. Thus, the communists sought foreign enemies.

Tens of millions of new entrants into American society seek to establish themselves in the culture. Especially Mexicans and blacks embrace anti-Semitism as a respectable white European Christian value. At the same time, anti-Semitism offers an outlet for their discontent toward European whites, capitalists, and politicians.

Anti-Semitism in America is not unthinkable. Sixty years ago, Jews had hard time being accepted for any jobs. Forty years ago, Jews were largely denied access to country clubs. Twenty to thirty years ago, anti-Semitic incidents were commonplace in the poor districts of New York, and the police did not intervene.

A major surge in American anti-Semitism is probable.
