Twenty-First Century Conservatism

Conservatism finds few fans in the underground. To them, conservatives are the people who in the name of a symbolic platform — defense, abortion, business, Judeo-Christianity/rapture — sold the nation for twenty pieces of silver.

They have a point, but the fault lies not with conservatism, but democracy. Few understand that democracy is advertising: whoever says what pleases most, wins. For that reason, most of the people you see in politics are flatterers-of-the-crowd first and conservatives second.

Imagine a product where all you have to do is complete the sale and then explain away its failures. If it breaks, the other side did it; if it does not work, just buy two. Even better, you can do so with money taken from other people.

This explains the grossest failings of conservatism on a functional level, like our debt and dysfunctional big government; on a more insidious level, conservatism was dumbed down in the 1960s to be consistent with 1940s American wartime propaganda, and this has removed its claws and fangs.

Until the 1980s, conservatives did not break out of their self-imposed mental ghetto, which basically left them as libertarians who wanted to preserve their right to voluntary personal behaviors. This missed the big point: Leftism had changed society itself, and so those behaviors were now demonized or illegal.

However, the sway of WW2-era propaganda remained strong. We beat the Nazis and Soviets by having more “freedom,” we were told, and in order to preserve that, we needed civil rights or legally-enforced equality. Never mind that legally-enforced equality was the cornerstone of the Soviet state.

Conservatives faced a dilemma, however, in that Leftism is perpetually popular. It argues that we can have our cake and eat it too, mainly by subsidizing the individual at the expense of civilization, allowing us to live without the burden of perpetuating civilization.

Leftism represents a variety of that type of human behavior that occurs when we take things for granted. In a functional civilization, it is easy to forget that functional civilization only comes about when we do things like reward the good and smite the bad.

Once civilization finds itself fully established, people with no purpose in life arise who demand that we “share the wealth” even though not sharing the wealth was the method that allowed civilization to thrive. Rewarding the good, like natural selection, builds civilization.

For this reason, successful societies die by Leftism. Once safe and happy, the citizens lose sight of reality, and indulge in their own pretenses that they think make them look good, sexy, intelligent, brave, and wise to their fellow citizens.

Conservatism slowly emerged from the fog of this type of thinking when, in the early 2000s, it became clear that Leftist programs had bankrupted our society, wrecked social order, and made people so miserable that they stopped reproducing at replacement rates. This is a death spiral.

It became equally clear that a large number of our citizens, especially on the lower levels of competence, would always vote for more of the same entitlements, civil rights, and big government that was wrecking our society.

Further, the demographic question came into view, with people slowly realizing that importing lots of people from third world societies also brought in social conflict through diversity, and people who permanently vote Leftist to depose the majority and re-create the type of society from which they came.

For moderate conservatives, the shocker appeared when over time it became obvious that these people were genetically wired toward third-world style civilizations; after all, anyone else had been weeded out in their home nations by natural selection!

Consequently, conservatism began to emerge from the haze of fusionism, or a conservative-flavored hybrid of libertarian and Leftist beliefs as advocated by fake WASP William F. Buckley.

With populism, conservatives found a winning formula. Instead of going hard to the Right, they emphasized a radical middle which was fundamentally libertarian but also skeptical of ideology. It posited that there was a spirit to each civilization that was more important than the “will of the people” because most of “the people” did not and could not, biologically/genetically, understand it. It takes high IQ, high moral character, and strong diligence to understand this spirit.

By slamming to a moderate extremist position, the populists drove the Left further to the Left, which caused them to remove the concealment that hid their intentions toward a neo-totalitarian, socialist regime in which historically successful groups like whites and Jews would be eliminated.

In the meantime, the Left has boxed itself in through success. It cannot go back on its civil rights, entitlements, immigration, and globalism policies because during the past century government has become so powerful that now industry is created by its policies. Corporate donors and many jobs depend on the jobs the Left has “created” with the consumerism circular Ponzi scheme, fast money fiat currency, and jobs created by bureaucracy and regulations.

This sets up the stage for twenty-first century politics: an Establishment comprised of Leftists driven by civil rights and the industry dependent on third world underclass spending, opposed by those who want an organic order of national identity, competitive economics, class awareness, and smaller government. In this context, “Big Government” means ideological government, as only with a blank cheque like civil rights and fighting poverty can government grow to a controlling level.

For the Right to take itself to the next stage, it will need to adopt a few stances that right now seem heretical but soon will be normalized:

  • Strong realism. Realism means that you measure by results, not what people say makes them more happy. People have no idea what they want, for the most part, and most look to scapegoats and “grass is greener” scenarios, which leads to self-destructive behavior. We look at what happens when we adopt a policy and, if results are bad and/or include new problems, we reject it.
  • Genetic awareness. This influences social class more than anything else: the social classes are genetically different and have different abilities. Someone from a long line of upper-echelon people will be smarter, thinner, longer-faced, healthier, and more adept at complex tasks than someone from a lower-echelon background. This upsets modern people, but it is obvious reality.
  • Western identities. Western identity comprises several parts: European race, a European regional group (Southern, Eastern, Western), an ethnic group, a religion, a culture, and social class. There can be no pan-white movement; there can only be allied European ethnic movements. These cannot deny social class, but must embrace inner hierarchy and follow the maxim of Plato, “good to the good, and bad to the bad” which unites conventional morality of responsibility with natural selection.
  • Against the herd. Populism has already taken a step in this direction by recognizing the spirit of a civilization over the immediate delegated will of the people. Some interpret civilization better than others; this is why we have some good leaders and some bad ones. We have to focus on choosing the good in leadership, art, culture, and the professions, which we have not done for some time.
  • Benevolent xenophobia. Nationalism works because diversity destroys civilizations and must be avoided, but also serves to build cultural identity. However, it must be done correctly. Nationalism needs to be seized back from those who simply detest other groups and conveyed into the hands of those who recognize that all other groups are seeking to conquer us because this is the rule of nature. No group is stable unless it rules the world, although empire also destroys them, so the best order is one where each group commands its own local region.
  • Futurism. Conservatives forget that “conserve the best of the past” means “implement for the future.” Instead of looking to police our societies, we need to focus on generating more productivity, quality, and learning. Defensive outlooks quickly become fatalistic excuses for armchair activism.
  • Green misanthropy. Our environmental problems distill to having too many people and too many big cities. If we leave aside half of the land for nature and stop policies that encourage growth of population and cities, we might be able to survive and avoid ecocide. If we commit ecocide, humanity will never like itself again, which will lead to the brightest dying out from lack of reproduction, and the only remaining people being the selfish, greedy, and oblivious.

Next-stage populism of this type seems impossible now, since politics is still saturated in the twentieth-century narrative of civil rights and entitlements. However, liberal democracy has run itself aground with debt, social chaos, crime, and corruption; its era is slowly ending.

This means that for conservatives — everyone who is not an egalitarian, at this point — to seize the day, we must plan for the future with a platform that makes life better in addition to simply avoiding the crisis of Leftism.
