Finding A Way Forward Past The Corpse Of The West

We stand at an interesting time in history. The accelerating idea of the past thousand years, individualism, has fallen. Something new will take its place. Visualizing this however proves difficult because the modern society mixture — democracy, consumerism, equality and diversity — is all that we have known, so we are treading in uncertain mental waters.

The past is just far enough away that we cannot resurrect it, and are not sure we want to go down that path again. Futuristic notions tend to be based in technology, which whether we follow Kaczynski and blame it for our situation or not, we tend not to see as a substitute for the workings of a functional society. And so, a void exists, and because we cannot see past it, we stagnate in indecision.

The problem with Western Europeans today is that they have no “branding”: a singular, simple and expressive notion of themselves which carries forward into the future. We do not know what defines us, and therefore, have no idea what parts of the present to keep and which to reject.

In other writings on this site, it has been proposed that Western Europeans have a defining trait in that we are reflective, or prone to contemplate the nature of the universe and measure our own acts against it. The problems with this approach are that it can lead to navel-gazing, and because it is solitary, it is easily subverted by social forces like peer pressure.

Western Europeans can recapture their sense of identity through this forward-looking notion. Those that reflect, refine, improve and seek to understand — the rage for order in our Faustian souls — created our civilization, and we can apply these principles toward the future. That is: we do not need a new theory, but a new start, and then to improve qualitatively.

We know we need an intermediate position between our present failure and whatever comes in the future, and that laws will not save us. Some have suggested forming corporate settlements, and others want strong governments.

Right now we struggle because we must ask which way is forward for “us” because the answer is not clear at all. There should be a long term plan but there is no such thing. The current time-frame is a good time to think about these things, where at least we can identify the goal as Civilization: a non-self-destructing society which advances past the capabilities of the individual human.

The example of South Africa may be instructive for future civilizations as seen in the light of populist changes. Western Man has accepted world wars, liberal academia, abusive corporations but only protested when finances got out of hand. This applies to America as well as to Europe.

In South Africa, money was not affected at all initially, which goes a long way to explain the “willing” apathy of local whites caught in the bourgeois dream of succeeding amongst a sea of others who do not. This situation did not last; as government failed, so eventually did the economy. Essentially this means we — South Africa and the West — are slowly being bundled into the same boat.

Going forward towards a civilization requires an organized and coordinated approach. In South Africa, the Boer elite pushed primarily for a legal system followed by a mother tongue system. They thought that the law would protect them against crime and corporations, but they were wrong. We had specialized white-collar-crime courts, which failed, and Corps & Municipalities which failed too, except the banks (of course).

For the American civilization, I would propose a re-focus on majority rights. It is possible to change the law so that only majority tax-payer people can vote (without affecting the Constitution). I would also propose a mother-tongue dispensation and English-language schools instead of defining an official language to the nation-state as a whole.

The difference between South Africa and this future USA would be law enforcement, which would be enhanced to include Corporations and Cities/NGOs, where no multinational corporations would be allowed. The US economy used to be 95% internal and 5% external. So what was the point of globalization, other than greed and arrogance? The Trump plan of “bilateral trade” is the opposite, namely an adjustment for cost of porduction.

In the near future, it may be possible to support a law which would limit who can vote. Many have suggested a vote only for those who pay taxes, but this favors the middle classes who often vote against their interests. Perhaps a return to those who own property free and clear is required to offset the democratizing force of usuary.

As far as a possible “war” in the sense of street fighting goes, it should not be opposed; it is a necessary stage in spurring the herd to want to actually fix problems. The swarm needs to resolve itself before it will accept culture as their guideline. Until then it will only desire more anarchy and lack of responsibility.

Black protests and demographic voting continue in South Africa precisely because there is no culture or identity “branding.” The rest of the West needs to learn from this example, and rush to brand itself as what it is, Western Civilization. With that being done, it can start acting in self-interest and avoid the chaos of the conflict of special interest groups that democracy creates.

  1. The Enlightenment philosophy has proven to be problematic but that does not imply the West is gone. The West is going through a period of awakening and transition to something new. Some new kind of question and answer or answers.

  2. The West besides being characterized by the Bible also depends a lot on philosophical questions. That is starting from Parmenides how is change possible? which resulted in Plato and Aristotle and the Middle Ages. Then the Enlightenment questions, What is a just society? and the Mind Body problem which resulted in a whole long list of people answering one or the other. Kant and Hegel were results of the second question–but also the first to some degree. Now the questions and answers are changing.

    • Plato’s response to “What is a just society?” — a consequence of wealth and thus navel-gazing introspection — was to ask instead “What is the best life?”

      More sensible, and geared toward health/sanity instead of human emotional/social constructs.

    What worries me is that our owners will create the dialectic to control the outcome, we will not. The dumb herd will walk off the cliff if “everybody” is doing it. I reference the Bolshevik revolution and the civil rights movement. The herd view of the Communist revolution is that it was an inevitable popular uprising due to the repression of the Tsarist government. In fact, the Bolsheviks managed to topple the Russian provisional government with relatively little support from the Russian people as a whole. The Bolsheviks were concentrated in St. Petersburg, not the entire country. Plus, they were aided by the German government which sent Lenin and others back to Russia. Not only that, but these “Communists” were financed by Western jewish bankers.

    As to the civil rights movement in the US, it was and is presented by the media as another noble, popular uprising that was supported by every “good” person. The truth was that there were very small numbers taking part in the Freedom Rides or the lunch counter sit-ins, but you wouldn’t know this from the amount of press it got. Again, it was presented as an inevitable outcome given the “evil” of slavery that had to be atoned for. The Federal government then forced it down the throats of the Whites of America and it has been a milestone around our necks since.

    My concern is for us to beware of any movement that garners any media or political support from the entrenched party system. If there is going to be a change, it will have to piggyback on the coming economic crisis. Unfortunately, economic privation is the only thing that will get Whites off their asses and focused enough to do what is necessary. And it will need to occur on a local level. We need to divide the US up into units and enforce our autonomy. South Africa will be any interesting example. Blacks can’t maintain an economy, so are they going to be able to exterminate the Boers without money and weapons, along with their superior numbers? I know that a small number of Boers almost fought the British Empire to a draw. I hope that both the Boers and Western Whites still have the “Wrath of the Saxon” in their bones.

    • The Bolsheviks were small, but combined with all the leftists were great. The provisional government was not tzarist but rather the social democrats and the Menschiviks. Thus the general opinion of the Russian people seems in fact to have been in that direction–at the time. Eventually Socialism lost its plausibility.

      • And the Mensheviks were just as communist as the Bolsheviks as Dr Bryan Caplan has pointed out.

        Yeah, that seems to be the party line. Are you jewish? The truth is that the entire “communist” revolution was a top down imposition that occurred because the Bolsheviks were able to militarily control St. Petersburg. The “general opinion” of the Russian people was one of ignorance, since there was no omnipresent source of information and only those that could read would get the party line about was happening. The fact that the White armies, led by the military aristocracy, did not win is because the Western jewish bankers were financing the reds and deliberately blocking the Whites from receiving funds and weaponry. Look at America. Do the powers that be control the 83% of the land that voted for Trump (and by this I mean county wide areas that voted overwhelmingly for Trump)? No. They focus on the urban areas, since these have disproportionate opinion making power. In Russia it was even easier. They only had to focus on St. Petersburg and they won.
