Amerika Is The Alpha Male Of The Alt Right

marcus_aurelius_in_shadow

Among the Alt Right and Neoreaction blogs, there are many good ones, most of which are featured in our links section. But Amerika, thanks to its many contributors, rises to alpha male status among even this select group, although only other alphas will recognize it.

Writing presents a challenge because words are acts in themselves, and it becomes tempting to separate the words from the meaning. As Arthur Schopenhauer wrote in “On Authorship”:

Again, it may be said that there are three kinds of authors.

  1. First come those who write without thinking. They write from a full memory, from reminiscences; it may be, even straight out of other people’s books. This class is the most numerous.

  2. Then come those who do their thinking whilst they are writing,—they think in order to write; and there is no lack of them.

  3. Last of all come those authors who think before they begin to write: they are rare.

Writers suffer temptations. There is the temptation to construct the message around what the audience believes should be true, which brings in more readers but limits what can be said. There is the temptation to write with the emotions, which makes one seem bold and extreme. Or to write excuses for the personal failures of the audience, and find scapegoats instead of solutions. All of these are paths to dumbing-down.

Alpha writers are those who focus on expressing with clarity what is most accurate in their observations. An Alpha does not spend his time writing prose that flatters the audience or gratifies their pretense; he brushes past these things and tells them something of relevance. A good book is like a pocketknife, full of handy tools to use in the many different types of scrapes one can get into in life.

Your beta writer will rage and bluster in order to be part of the trends of the moment and to get “his share” of the attention. An Alpha will take a middle path: calm, reasoned and yet unwavering in its focus on the bottom line. Your Alpha writer is like an old West gunsel, soft-spoken and steely-eyed, waiting for the chance to pounce and then acting with abrupt and conclusive violence.

Writers of this nature, like the contributors to this site, are not here to make you feel happy and warm. Nor are they here to give you a shot in the arm of righteous rage and victimhood. They are here to slay the dragon, which is human ignorance, and to re-orient your mind toward useful activity.

This is what the Buddhists call a “middle path”: avoiding extremes not as a moderate, but as someone who is reality-based and therefore does not need the signaling which is the intent of extremes. There are practical reasons for this; as recent research suggests, extremism can backfire:

A recent study published in PNAS showed that when people who hold extreme opinions are exposed to even more extreme opinions, they tend to moderate their views. Unfortunately, exposing moderates to these same intervention messages makes them more extreme in their opinions, so this technique may be a double-edged sword.

When exposed to extremism, extremists get less extreme and moderates get more extreme. For that reason, a winning strategy is to avoid being extreme in the ways that are obvious, but to be extreme in the ways that are not, pushing the moderates toward more fully realizing their views.

On this site, you do not see the kind of punitivism and scapegoating that is the norm on all political sites because it is the norm in democratic times. Instead, there is a different kind of extremism: rejecting failed policies and unrealistic plans like diversity, equality, democracy, ethno-bolshevism and other nonsense that pleases groups when spoken but fails in reality.

That is why our writers are Alphas and this site is the Alpha of the Alt Right. We do not back down from the essential issues, nor do we get confused with the fascinations and intellectual accessorizing of the betas. Instead, there is only that steely-eyed look down the barrel of a weapon, fixed on the target always.

    The writing here is greatly engaging and is interesting even beyond the subject matter. That said, where do you come by those great graphics that are the prologue?

  2. Avraham Rosenblum says:

    This is in fact the only blog I visit on the Alt Right and besides Dalrock the only one I look at on a consistent basis.

  3. Johann Theron says:

    Great argument.

  4. Finnish Individual says:

    First rule of the alphabeta: if you talk of alpha and beta, you are omega.

    I am sorry.

    ALL EVALUATIONS OF VALUE ARE OPINIONS. Nobody can force his opinion on others, unless with violence or coertion. Both are not going to work with me. ONLY I DECIDE WHO IS UP OR DOWN TO ME. If you want me to believe youre my leader, chances are I will automatically disagree, and youll have to kill me somehow. Begin developing ways to kill those who disagree with you, over the web.

    anyway, Brett, id the oicture of you that was piblished by someone, long hair nerdy, is you, you are NOT alpha of any kind. Stop being insane. I hate ugly people who claim theyre “alpha”.

    and no you arent the good looking guy you out on your twitter. That looks more like me.

    • Finnish Individual says:

      Are going to be a crybaby who acts tough for this too? I hate ugly people who complain when theyre called what they are. Are you that guy, or not?

      I tend to forget it, but one thing I really hate of the web is how you dont see peoples faces. They are important in selecting who to listen too – albeit I am still aware looks can be deceiving, and handsome doesnt equal smart and ugly doesnt equal stupid. Behold the perfection of my evaluation method.

      I JUST DONT BELIEVE IN ANYTHING, until there is ultimate proof. It is the scientific method, it is agnosticism. I love it.

      • -_- says:

        The scientific method is just egalitarianism applied to experimentation. Consensus defines fact.

        • Finnish Individual says:

          consensus is fact? so the majority is always right and many people cannot be wrong? this contradicts all this blog has ever written.

          YOU ARE A BUNCH OF PSYCHOS.

          CONSENSUS IS NOT FACT. scientific method is. fact.

          consensus is fact is the most egalitarian idea. YOU ARE FUCKING IDIOTS. ill try to stay away from you idiots. You are seriously disturbed.

          consensus is fact, and the moron replies “sounds accurate”. YOU HAVE WRITTEN THE EXACT OPPOSITE MANY TIMES, YOU FUCKING RETARD.

          you are mentally ill. period. fact.

          • Err… his comment was most likely critical of it.

            • Finnish Individual says:

              Sarcasm and irony should be explicitly affirmed on internet comments. Anyone who still didnt get that doesnt deserve to use the internet.

              by the way I doubts it. He was totally serious. He thinks consensus is fact. You are gaslighting. Malignant Narcissism confirmed.

            • Finnish Individual says:

              the scientific method is NOT “consensus is fact”, in case the millennial retard (only a millennial uses that retarded pompous narcissistic emoticon – like he is always right, sure hahahha!) thinks so.

      • crow says:

        Maybe it’s time to switch to decaf..?

      • Asian Reactionary says:

        I think he’s just having a bit of fun with terminology.

      • Some things do not require belief. Love, honor, pride, heritage, beauty, excellence and realism. They just are, and their utility is available to those who can understand it.

    • ONLY I DECIDE WHO IS UP OR DOWN TO ME.

      This is the first part of wisdom. But you are missing the second part: ONLY REALITY DECIDES HOW RIGHT YOU ARE. (And at its own pace, which requires great patience and immortality to observe).

  5. Asian Reactionary says:

    Its amusing to think of blogs as having Game. But I do agree that this is by far, one of the best sites in the Reactionary sphere. Even if I might not agree with every single idea advocated, it still is well reasoned and comes from a genuine gentleman.

  6. crow says:

    I have difficulty equating the term ‘Alpha’ with writers. I mean, whatever next? Alpha confectioners? Alpha interior decorators?

    Let’s not do the leftist thing, and co-opt terms to describe things they are the opposite of.

    • Finnish Individual says:

      The term should be used for animals only. Humans are more complicated.

      Anyway, I am an alpha Super Mario player, and dont you dare not bow down to my immense accomplishment =)

    • I reserve the right to attack and subvert all adjectives.

      • Finnish Individual says:

        That right should be taken away from you.

        You have written enough, you said everything you had to say. You dont need the internet anymore.

        • Asian Reactionary says:

          Somewhere out there is a feminist who needs to be targeted by your internet revoking powers.

        • 1349 says:

          “That right should be taken away from you.”

          There’s a Belarusian saying about you which translates to something like:
          “It’s good that God gave no horns to the cow that is given to butting”.
          (“A cursed cow has short horns” is an analog.)

    As youths me may have dreamt of living as Zarathustra but few of us have the strength or the wisdom (a shard is not enough) for that as the crowd is strong and dangerous and so we accept the ‘social’ as a fact of life.

    It’s difficult to be a participant in society and to keep a clear mind free from the crowd’s influence. The crowd is the social as an end rather than as a means to an end.

    This blog is great for recalibrating after a day spent in the social environment and any points of disagreement I have with the content are largely irrelevant. That this blog is uncompromising makes it what it is.

  8. Montefrío says:

    Fifty years of zen practice has long since led me to understand a simple maxim from Latin, a language once studied by nearly all non-mouth-breathers: res non verba. At 70, I’m still paid to write, therefore I’m a writer not a dilettante. “Steely-eyed” young men are usually too busy doing rather than writing, but maybe they’ve developed a reservoir of experience; one hopes so. In any case, this is my first visit here, so it’s still too soon for me to tell just how “alpha” this site and its contributors are. The thing is, though, being “alpha”,it’s kind of like the Tao: “Those who know do not speak; those who speak do not know”.

    • crow says:

      At 70 you’re still paid to write, even though you haven’t yet discovered the paragraph-break? That’s amazing.

      Those who know, do not speak, in the moment of knowing.
      Those who speak, do not know, if all they do is speak.

      There are many lines in taoteching that Westerners utterly fail to grasp. Inversion being a Western thing, and all.

  9. Crucifier says:

    I’ve enjoyed the writing here, DM.org and the old anus site. It came to me at a crucial time and helped me sort my thoughts out and refocus, it was a true light in the dark!
