Entering The Age Of White Civil Rights, The New Counterculture Has To Decide If The Medium Is The Message

Friday, October 20th, 2017

It is no secret that the tables have turned, and former counterculture is now the Establishment, opposed by those who understood what the prior Establishment claimed to represent but never could quite achieve. The real question now is whether the new counterculture aims to become the next Establishment, which is any type of old dogma weakly defending itself, or to be something better.

This cycle of home team versus away team creates the sportsball nature of politics. Everyone sticks with their team because it fits their individual identities. Home team argues that they are winners, where away team portrays themselves as underdogs gunning for an upset. The people who think life is good “as is” join the home team, and people who are dissatisfied join the away team.

More than Left-versus-Right, this creates the seesaw nature of modern politics. When one side gets in power, it begins dismantling what the other side did, and then the process repeats again. Every few decades there is a fundamental power shift, usually provoked by an enemy which seems allied with either the Establishment or counterculture, and that puts the corresponding party out of favor.

In our case, the most recent enemy after the Soviets has been the globalists, who take a toxic mixture of Leftist ambitions and capitalist funding, amplify it through Keynesian tax-borrow-and-spend policies, and enforce it with the notions of “freedom,” “justice” and “equality” that sound like they should be good things, and so people are afraid to oppose them.

Domestic parties that support similar ideas, mainly the mating of egalitarian sentiments with culture-destroying international business, have suffered a bit of a hit as a result. When they were the counterculture, they promised the opposite of what now that they are finally fully in power, they have delivered.

In addition, their approach has taken on a decidedly Soviet character. Their neo-Communism consists of the same drive toward mass equality, similar attitudes toward censorship and declaring dissidents to be unperson, and a strikingly similar result: a mass culture of workers, living in small apartments, owning little and with no future prospect of escape, in this case because they are taxed to provide for a growing and hostile underclass.

Enter the Alt Right, which could be described as “traditional conservatism” in that it embraces aspects of the Right that were discarded by the mainstream Right in order to be able to compromise with the Left as it won the culture war and consequently, political dominance only occasionally interrupted by a moderate conservative like Ronald Reagan.

In particular, the Alt Right endorses nationalism, which is the recognition that diverse or multicultural nation-states lead to the destruction of the founding group, which in the case of Western Civilization is Western European people. Without this group, there cannot be Western Civilization, although mainstream conservatives would be happy with a mixed-race group upholding its Constitution, capitalism and Christianity.

The Alt Right also endorses a strong social conservatism, in defiance of the trend of the mainstream Right to be more libertarian or “classical liberal,” in response to the disaster of sexual liberation and divorce that has blighted the family and ruined the chances for happiness for many young men. It also seeks to differentiate itself from white nationalism, a movement which focused too much on race alone and ignored the bigger problem which is the real target of the Alt Right, namely the collapse of Western Civilization and our need to restore Western Civilization in order to survive.

Recognizing the success of the Left, the Alt Right sought a simpler goal than the political intrigues of the mainstream Right or underground Right like white nationalism. It sought to create a cultural wave of cynicism toward equality, and in the void created by that doubt, insert the idea of a redesigned and revitalized Western Civilization which would end white genocide and the ongoing consumption of our natural world.

Now that the Alt Right is the new counterculture, or the underdog confronting a calcified Establishment with new ideas that it claims will lead to a better way of life, it has to decide whether it will continue the cycle of in-power versus out-of-power, or if it will entirely upend the paradigm.

Upending the paradigm looks like this: we escape ideology entirely, and instead of imposing human order on the world, we study its order and learn to impose it on ourselves. Darwinistic adaptation instead of humanism. Tradition instead of individualism. In other words, we get over ourselves, transcend our fears, and accept life as not just logical but beautiful, optimal and glorious.

The Alt Right is coming to this place. It is not a political revolution, and not just a cultural one, but a philosophical upending of all that we have considered sacred for the 228 years since the French Revolution. It is the end of mass culture, mass politics and utilitarianism; it is the rise of realism, futurism and sanity.

Only one question remains: what path does the Alt Right choose toward cultural dominance?

Two options exist. First, we could follow the usual pattern and try to get as many warm bodies as possible. Second, we could aim instead for the head, and target the one-in-twenty people who are the natural leaders of humanity. These are the people in any office who always know what to do, understand the core of their tasks more than anyone else, or just can find a path where everyone else falters.

The warm bodies option appeals most to us because it was the way to succeed in the era we have just come out of, The Age of Ideology. In that time — defined by the individualism that says what a person wants is more important than culture, nature or reality — whoever accumulated the largest mass culture movement won. But faith in democracy has shifted; people want results, not the warm feeling of participation.

In our new era, The Age of Organicism, hierarchy and standards have returned. These two go hand-in-hand because standards mean that each individual meets those to a differing degree, which creates rank not based on money and popularity, but ability to fulfill the needs and goals of culture. Organicism refers to the preference for innate tendencies like ethnic, cultural and religious identity as a replacement for the ideology, or motivation of the masses, preferred during The Age of Ideology.

If the Alt Right is the new counterculture but does not want to end up being the new Establishment, it must break free from the methods of the past entirely, which corresponds to an understanding of what the famous utterance by Marshall McLuhan that “the medium is the message” means; much like understanding that demography is destiny, it apprehends that changing behavior is more important than ideology:

McLuhan tells us that a “message” is, “the change of scale or pace or pattern” that a new invention or innovation “introduces into human affairs.” (McLuhan 8) Note that it is not the content or use of the innovation, but the change in inter-personal dynamics that the innovation brings with it. Thus, the message of theatrical production is not the musical or the play being produced, but perhaps the change in tourism that the production may encourage. In the case of a specific theatrical production, its message may be a change in attitude or action on the part of the audience that results from the medium of the play itself, which is quite distinct from the medium of theatrical production in general. Similarly, the message of a newscast are not the news stories themselves, but a change in the public attitude towards crime, or the creation of a climate of fear. A McLuhan message always tells us to look beyond the obvious and seek the non-obvious changes or effects that are enabled, enhanced, accelerated or extended by the new thing.

McLuhan defines medium for us as well. Right at the beginning of Understanding Media, he tells us that a medium is “any extension of ourselves.” Classically, he suggests that a hammer extends our arm and that the wheel extends our legs and feet. Each enables us to do more than our bodies could do on their own. Similarly, the medium of language extends our thoughts from within our mind out to others. Indeed, since our thoughts are the result of our individual sensory experience, speech is an “outering” of our senses – we could consider it as a form of reversing senses – whereas usually our senses bring the world into our minds, speech takes our sensorially-shaped minds out to the world.

But McLuhan always thought of a medium in the sense of a growing medium, like the fertile potting soil into which a seed is planted, or the agar in a Petri dish. In other words, a medium – this extension of our body or senses or mind – is anything from which a change emerges. And since some sort of change emerges from everything we conceive or create, all of our inventions, innovations, ideas and ideals are McLuhan media.

In other words, message is change and medium is what changes behavior, usually as a labor-saving device.

For the Alt Right, the medium is politics as an expression of hierarchy; that is, we listen to what is the most accurate depiction of reality, recognizing that only the top 2-5% of our population will “get it.” This conveys the message of traditional society: social order, above all else, represented by values, customs, ethnic identity, standards, hierarchy, principles, caste and norms.

We want social order back. We want to restore Western Civilization. But we cannot do that through the medium of mass politics because mass politics inverts signal and noise by choosing popular semi-truths over unpopular complex ones, which most people cannot understand and consequently, discard because they consider it insane or stupid.

The medium distorts the message, and this was the longstanding contribution of The Age of Ideology. By translating an idea into something that a mass culture can understand, we are forced to twist it until it no longer resembles itself, but is most like everything else, because everything else is attuned to the simple fact of what the crowd can understand and what it likes to think is true (once called “pretense”).

This fits with an ancient idea, derived from Plato and represented in the Bible, that only a small number of people make all the important changes in our world, while everyone else basically creates chaos through their individualistic behavior:

As the word masses is commonly used, it suggests agglomerations of poor and underprivileged people, laboring people, proletarians, and it means nothing like that; it means simply the majority. The mass man is one who has neither the force of intellect to apprehend the principles issuing in what we know as the humane life, nor the force of character to adhere to those principles steadily and strictly as laws of conduct; and because such people make up the great and overwhelming majority of mankind, they are called collectively the masses. The line of differentiation between the masses and the Remnant is set invariably by quality, not by circumstance. The Remnant are those who by force of intellect are able to apprehend these principles, and by force of character are able, at least measurably, to cleave to them. The masses are those who are unable to do either.

…Plato lived into the administration of Eubulus, when Athens was at the peak of its jazz-and-paper era, and he speaks of the Athenian masses with all Isaiah’s fervency, even comparing them to a herd of ravenous wild beasts. Curiously, too, he applies Isaiah’s own word remnant to the worthier portion of Athenian society; “there is but a very small remnant,” he says, of those who possess a saving force of intellect and force of character — too small, preciously as to Judea, to be of any avail against the ignorant and vicious preponderance of the masses.

…In the 18th century, however, certain European philosophers spread the notion that the mass man, in his natural state, is not at all the kind of person that earlier authorities made him out to be, but on the contrary, that he is a worthy object of interest. His untowardness is the effect of environment, an effect for which “society” is somehow responsible. If only his environment permitted him to live according to his lights, he would undoubtedly show himself to be quite a fellow; and the best way to secure a more favorable environment for him would be to let him arrange it for himself. The French Revolution acted powerfully as a springboard for this idea, projecting its influence in all directions throughout Europe.

The Age of Ideology was the age of domination by the masses; The Age of Organicism will be dominated again by the Remnant through the principle of hierarchy, by which we place those who have “force of intellect” and in parallel also “force of character” above the rest, and entrust them with wealth and power, because they will conserve it — keep it out of the hands of the insane — and use it well.

From elsewhere in The Republic:

When discord arose, then the two races were drawn different ways: the iron and brass fell to acquiring money and land and houses and gold and silver; but the gold and silver races, not wanting money but having the true riches in their own nature, inclined towards virtue and the ancient order of things. There was a battle between them, and at last they agreed to distribute their land and houses among individual owners; and they enslaved their friends and maintainers, whom they had formerly protected in the condition of freemen, and made of them subjects and servants; and they themselves were engaged in war and in keeping a watch against them.

The “true riches in their own nature, inclined towards virtue and the ancient order of things” is what we need. Mass culture has ruined Western Civilization, even though this decline had its origins far earlier when corrupt merchants began using lesser aristocrats and fallen churchmen as a weapon against the kings. The goal was always to seize wealth and power from those who would not abuse it.

The Florida demonstration constitutes a victory for the Alt Right. The Alt Right went in saying that the masses are delusional, that they hate any ideas they cannot control, and that they are violent Communists who use diversity as a weapon to destroy white people. Antifa and other Leftists promptly showed up and proved the Alt Right correct, for the third or fourth time in a row.

America and Europe are looking at this and thinking, “Holy mackerel. We let these people — the Left — rule us?” Not surprisingly, a wave of populist victories in Britain, America, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Poland and The Czech Republic are showing us that people are in fact rejecting the Leftist idea in its ultimate form as globalism.

Globalism expresses the single idea that the Left really has — human equality, which is the individualism legitimized during The Enlightenment™ — by removing any borders and standards imposed on human behavior. It creates the one worldwide mass culture, unified by consumerism and socialism, which like the French Revolutionaries which are its ideological ancestor, demands more for the individual from society and in the name of equality.

Most people find it hard to reject the idea of equality. Like pacifism, it seems to make sense when you take it for granted that civilization will always be there, and that your immediate need to transact business and socialize is more important than goals above the individual, like values, philosophy, heritage and purpose. But when “equality” reveals itself to be a path to neo-Communism, censorship, third world levels of disorder, constant ethnic violence, corrupt governments, and racial replacement by foreign populations, people oppose it; even more, they have realized that the roots of globalism were formed of democracy and equality and proceeded inexorably from that seed, eventually flowering into its final form, which suspicious resembled Communism with consumerism.

But to the Alt Right, equality is a false god that replaces the need to strive for virtue. Egalitarians of course will insist that equality is the only virtue, which is a popular message because it is easier to be politically correct in one area than to be morally upright in every area of life.

How a message of virtue became contorted into a message of upholding only one presumed virtue shows us the medium as the message. When we simplify for the herd, corruption and inversion of the message occurs, and that always reverts to the most base instincts of humanity. Those boil down to a desire for “anarchy with grocery stores” and free stuff paid for by other people, as propelled the French Revolution.

In Florida, the Alt Right triumphed. It has revealed its enemies to be the Establishment. Its strength is rising, and at this point, the only enemy that can defeat it is the Alt Right itself, if it does not heed the lessons of history and focuses on pandering to the lowest common denominator instead of looking toward informing, inspiring and revitalizing the Remnant.

Can The Alt Right Perfect “Scientific Government”?

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Understanding risk in the context of organizations involves breaking down a relatively simple definition into its multiple implications:

Business risk is the possibility a company will have lower than anticipated profits or experience a loss rather than taking a profit.

This identifies two areas of concern, first inefficiency and second, failure of productivity. Governments and civilizations, like business, belong to the category of organizations and are subject to risk, including the ultimate risk, which is that disorganization or lack of productivity will cause a collapse as seen in the Soviet Union or Venezuela.

Using the book as input, we can see how to apply risk to American civilization instead of the current government, as it is normally viewed by voters.

In our modern world, we do not refer to nations or civilizations as organic things, but as products of the state, and so when we think of risk, we worry about our government shutting down, spending too much, not taxing enough or being unable to achieve internal compromises and becoming locked up.

The Alt Right, being of a variety of conservative that occurred before the neoconservative and classical liberal forms that were adopted because of their compatibility with Leftism in the era after the French Revolution, views risk different because we see a different target: Western Civilization, or the organic and naturalistic collaboration of Western peoples.

For the crime of looking at civilization instead of the state, we are dubbed “white supremacists” and “bigots,” but in reality, we are looking at the organization which creates and empowers the state. In theory, the state is the caretaker of civilization, but once it becomes powerful enough, it simply replaces civilization with itself through ideology, usually of egalitarianism.

According to the book, risk applies only to objectives, and when civilization does not have an objective, no risk management applies to the typical threats apparently only perceived by the Alt Right. For that reason, an Alt Right view will take the opposite viewpoint: that risks lead to objectives, and not vice-versa.

In other words, civilization has an inherent objective, which is to survive in a Darwinian sense, which at some point requires encoding its values and culture into DNA so they can be passed on without relying on political constructs like the state and social constructs like equality, rights, liberty and freedoms.

Using the ISO 31000 standard, risk is defined as the “effect of uncertainty on objectives,” resulting in the management imperative to “coordinate activities to direct and control an organization with regard to risk.” The White House has no risk management for its “America First” goal because its authorization extends only to setting up a sub-organization to address risk as defined in ANSI/ASSE Z690.2-2011 Risk Management Principles and Guidelines.

In other words, governments cannot address civilizational risk, but can only look after themselves, and only indirectly. This requires us to re-interpret risk as applicable to civilization itself instead of the institutions of those civilizations. This becomes complex because risk involves both threats and opportunities. For example:

The approval of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was intended to infuse the US economy with desperately needed funds. The risks associated with issuing multi-million-dollar grants and contracts as required by ARRA in such a short period of time were great: however, the opportunity to stimulate the economy and make economic gains was projected to outweigh the risks.

This means that a standard threat-versus-opportunity guideline does not exist because most people think only in terms of threats. The eventual outcome of “predicted” threat and opportunity scenarios are never confirmed after the fact meaning that lessons are never learnt and mistakes repeated over multiple administrations, as is obvious from the way risk management in American government is structured.

But at least the Government Accounting Office (GAO) has a “High Risk List” including solutions used. It address solely the government: “The US federal government is the world’s largest and most complex organizational entity, with about $3.5 trillion in outlays in fiscal year 2012.” These risks are:

  1. Limiting federal government’s fiscal by better managing climate control risks.
  2. Mitigating gaps in weather satellite data
  3. Strategic human capital management
  4. Managing federal real property
  5. National flood insurance program
  6. Improving and modernizing federal disability programs
  7. Pension benefit guaranty corporation insurance program
  8. NASA acquisition management
  9. Protecting health through enhanced oversight of medical products
  10. Protecting the federal government’s information systems and the national cyber critical infrastructures
  11. Revamping federal oversight of flood safety
  12. Restructuring the US postal services to achieve sustainable financial viability

The above risks are defined as “important” which translates to sustained manpower and budget allocations. But in the aftermath of flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, the Manhattan Institute found that instead of mitigating the effect of flooding, that the US Government makes matters worse by tempting people into Hurricane’s paths.

Identifying “all” risks to “America First” — itself a proxy for protecting our civilization, as opposed to setting global standards to protect the world economy — is obviously not possible because it would require inputs from all managers in the American government. Identifying a risk also requires an important methodology of detection, verification and scope before manpower is allowed to define and spend resources on it.

Various sources of risk are possible, but these fail to include threats to civilization. The RIMS (Recent Risk Events) for 2013 is an example of the variety of risk, as follows:

  1. Horse meat discovered in UK beef
  2. New rule strengthens mine safety
  3. Brazil nightclub fire kills 242
  4. The cruise from carnival
  5. Meteor explodes over Russia
  6. Sinkhole swallows Florida man
  7. Data breach exposes 50 million accounts
  8. New avian flu threatens humans
  9. Massive explosion levels fertilizer plant
  10. Bangladesh building collapse kills 1100
  11. Tornadoes tear through Midwest
  12. Vermont fights patent trolls
  13. Washington bridge collapses

If you are not concerned about the risks above, you should be, because of what is missing. For example:

  • Globalism is not a risk
  • Migration is not a risk
  • Economic collapse is not a risk
  • Political succession is not a risk
  • Diversity is not a risk
  • World wars are not a risk
  • Private censorship is not a risk

These omissions present the Alt Right with an opportunity to demonstrate its rightful leadership by addressing risks that affect civilization, even if they do not affect institutions like the American government or clusters of institutions such as those which administrate the world economy.

What the Alt Right can bring to our consideration of risk is the understanding that politics is actually about life or death challenges; the government and its institutions are supposed to serve the people, which does not necessarily mean doing what they want, but in protecting them from that which can destroy them while enhancing that which brings quality of life.

This will force a move away from decadently setting “political goals” based on utopian visions of ideology, and instead toward consideration real risks. For the past two centuries we have focused on symbolic correctness, whether economic or social, and ignored consequences of our actions to the organic entity of civilization.

As the age of ideology fades, and is replaced by consciousness of the need for civilization above the desires of the individual, attention focuses on actual risks instead of what we might call political risks, or things which would displace our rulers or destabilize their institutions.

Luckily for the Alt Right, average people understand risk because they are accustomed to balancing threats and opportunities in their own lives and for the sake of their families. Through bypassing the entire world of political risk, and focusing on actual risk, the Alt Right can address the actual concerns of people instead of these utopian notions.

America Cannot Control Its Leftists, So Declares A State Of Emergency Over Possibly Upsetting Words

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

For the Left, success is easy because it uses the methods of a cult or criminal gang. You must declare an enemy who is obstructing the achievement of the only way to succeed, then show how that enemy is holding back the share of the loot that goes to each person, and then you must portray this future golden land in such a way that it makes your audience feel like it will solve all of their problems.

Modern Leftism has succeeded for the last seventy years by using race as a dog whistle. Racists are bad, so anything which is called racist is an impediment to progress, peace, justice, equality, happiness, legal marijuana, or whatever else they can make it stick to. Hillary Clinton attempted to do this when she mentioned the Alt Right in her speech, but really, she merely emboldened an already inevitable revolution.

People are tired of the age of ideology. It promised a golden land and delivered a Soviet wasteland covered in paste-on brick finish. It hoodwinked us by appealing to our lowest urges, basically for anarchy and unearned wealth, and then befuddled us with lust through sexual liberation, drugs through the culture war, and an endless array of theories which are basically irrelevant to anything but themselves.

As the Alt Right surge sweeps the land, the Left is reacting badly because they realize that, unlike the Right, the Left has only one wall around its citadel. If the theory dies, so dies the Leftist movement, and so they are doubling down on anything that can be used to defend egalitarianism, with diversity at the forefront.

Not surprisingly, panicked Leftists who are seeing their justification for their lifestyles about to go up in smoke are enraged and rioting. The Alt Right, betrayed by police at several events, has capitalized on this by essentially telling local communities that they either protect free speech, or the Alt Right will show up with Antifa in tow, and Antifa will then as usual burn, vandalize, loot and destroy.

Florida is trying to get out of this by declaring a state of emergency, which gives them expanded police powers:

Spencer is scheduled to speak at the University of Florida campus in Gainesville on Thursday.

Scott declared the state of emergency in Alachua County, noting that Spencer’s speeches in other states have in the past “sparked protests and counter-protests resulting in episodes of violence, civil unrest and multiple arrests,” according to the Tampa Bay Times.

…”The left wing establishment is built around anti-white policies,” Spencer told the group.

This is typical democratic thinking: instead of fixing the problem, stop whatever makes the problem visible. The Alt Right is a whistleblower telling America that not only is our multicultural nation-state dead in the water, but that our principles are all garbage, and we are living through the Fall of Rome 2.0 with only our social media presence to keep us from going insane.

Florida may declare a state of emergency, but they cannot stop the decentralized nature of riots. Now it is the Left, who usually uses riots as a weapon, who must face their own tactics used against them as the Alt Right instigates these riots by… speaking words that cause some people to question their existential value and path in life. Nothing more.

If we were looking for a sign that Rome has truly fallen, no better one could be presented than this ridiculous response to an innocent request to be heard.

How To Conquer The Herd

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Equality brought an age of mass politics: to get anything done, it requires finding a “personal army” of warm bodies to support that idea. This in turn meant that ideas became simplified and more emotional.

Many have focused on the problems of democracy as a system for achieving sensible ends; few have focused on what democracy does to people. Because the message must be simplified, people in turn resort to simplistic thinking.

This in turn shows us how pandering to the herd distorts the message and ensures that no actual idea will be transmitted:

But without following up this suggestion, I wish only, as I said, to remark the fact that as things now stand Isaiah’s job seems rather to go begging. Everyone with a message nowadays is, like my venerable European friend, eager to take it to the masses. His first, last and only thought is of mass acceptance and mass approval. His great care is to put his doctrine in such shape as will capture the masses’ attention and interest. This attitude towards the masses is so exclusive, so devout, that one is reminded of the troglodytic monster described by Plato, and the assiduous crowd at the entrance to its cave, trying obsequiously to placate it and win its favor, trying to interpret its inarticulate noises, trying to find out what it wants, and eagerly offering it all sorts of things that they think might strike its fancy.

The main trouble with all this is its reaction upon the mission itself. It necessitates an opportunist sophistication of one’s doctrine, which profoundly alters its character and reduces it to a mere placebo. If, say, you are a preacher, you wish to attract as large a congregation as you can, which means an appeal to the masses; and this, in turn, means adapting the terms of your message to the order of intellect and character that the masses exhibit. If you are an educator, say with a college on your hands, you wish to get as many students as possible, and you whittle down your requirements accordingly. If a writer, you aim at getting many readers; if a publisher, many purchasers; if a philosopher, many disciples; if a reformer, many converts; if a musician, many auditors; and so on. But as we see on all sides, in the realization of these several desires, the prophetic message is so heavily adulterated with trivialities, in every instance, that its effect on the masses is merely to harden them in their sins.

Even where the group is intelligent, mass culture selects for those ideas which are lowest common denominator, and thus unite some large group of people behind them, even if the original intent is lost. This is how you win, get the A+, succeed at the job of politics, etc., and it means that any complex or long-term ideas are filtered out before the point of decision.

Democracy makes people insane. It combines the lottery with the type of social reasoning that groups use in choosing where to go for dinner, and the result is that whatever flatters the most and offends the least will win, which by its nature excludes anything truthful, realistic or relevant. The herd chases after dreams and ignores realities.

Much as we talk about “peer pressure” influencing teens to engage in risky behaviors, democracy institutes peer pressure as a means of making decisions. What will win is more important than what is right, so the task becomes the cultivation of the audience instead of being accurate, which brings out the type of thinking common to entertainment or socialization, but not leadership.

The alternative is to do what the Alt Right is attempting: to reach the 2-5% of civilization who are still capable of analytical thought, convince them to think toward a goal that is immediately impractical but offers a long-term future, and then by inducing these natural leaders to have an idea, convince others to emulate them.

This process of emulation works unconsciously among people, and consists of imitating what is perceived as successful rather than an analytical process of questioning what is right, efficient, appropriate or helpful:

In new research that appeared Sept. 29 in Psychological Science, they find that focusing on how norms are changing can help people alter their behaviors.

…The researchers also conducted an experiment involving conserving water during the recent California drought. They posted signs in laundry facilities at high-rise residences of Stanford graduate students with static messages (“Most Stanford Residents Use Full Loads/Help Stanford Conserve Water”) or dynamic messages (“Stanford Residents Are Changing: Now Most Use Full Loads/Help Stanford Conserve Water). While the number of laundry loads were unaffected in buildings with no signs over the next three weeks, there was a 10 percent reduction among those who saw the static message, and nearly a 30 percent reduction for those who saw the dynamic message.

…“Dynamic norms may play a large role in social change,” Sparkman said. “Just learning that other people are changing can instigate all these psychological processes that motivate further change. People can begin to think that change is possible, that change is important and that in the future, the norms will be different. And then, if they become persuaded and decide to change, it starts to become a reality.”

Left to its own devices, the group imitates itself, with people seeing what others have done and then doing the same. This herd behavior proves damaging because it is entirely self-referential, which means that realistic concerns are ignored in favor of social concerns, namely keeping up with what the other monkeys are doing.

Luckily, this provides an option for future change, in that instead of reaching the masses, we need only to reach those who the masses imitate, which does not require simplifying the message. With this approach, the full questions can be presented, and those who can understand will pick up on those, with the less thoughtful imitating.

This knowledge clashes with the idea by many of the Right that we must create our own herd. They suggest that instead of tackling difficult truths, we should present a simplified version as a means-to-the-end of acquiring a large audience. But as research and historical evidence suggest, this approach will fail as it will simply destroy the message, where presenting a clear idea to the naturally capable has a chance of victory that is denied by mass culture cultivation.

What Actually Threatens The Alt Right

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

The Alt Right arose as an alternative both to the Left-leaning neoconservative mainstream conservatism and to the antisocial and violent underground far Right. As such, it gained great momentum in a time when people are tired of the options that placate the crowd, because anything popular converges on the inevitable mix of pacifism, egoism and neurosis.

Since that outsider status is what gives the Alt Right its power, its one fatal mistake — as opposed to missteps involving Nazi flags — is to become what it succeeded by not being, namely the Right-Left hybrid that is neoconservatism or other herd-friendly doctrines. The Alt Right succeeds by being all Right, which people accept even if disadvantageous to them because it is stable and sane.

From the days of its inception, the Alt Right has been threatened by infiltration from within by people who do not realize that they bear the Leftist idea-virus, and therefore convert the Alt Right into the Left by bringing into it their assumptions and dogma. If this de facto fifth column succeeds, the Alt Right becomes subverted like the mainstream Right.

Unfortunately, this fifth column is unaware that it exists. It consists of people who have gone through life, absorbed aspects of the Leftist hive-mind that is now our mass culture, and then turned toward the Right, without realizing how much of the Left is within them. This is why the Alt Right struggles with an angry audience of skraelings who will doom it just as they doomed white nationalism:

The comments sections of our website devolved into a cesspool filled by the most despicable pond scum, former 4-chaners who would routinely pile on in trolling attacks against me every time I published something with a bit of intellectual content.

The anti-4chan negativity seems off-base to this author, since 4chan is a mixed bag with some insightful commentators among the Reddit-style angry crawlspace NEETs and Whole Foods workers.

However, the larger point is a good one: when the herd takes over, it converts everything to a lowest common denominator, which then subverts the target and turns it into de facto Leftism. People allowed to express their individual judgments, desires and feelings become a force of entropy, fragmenting any focus by injecting their own personal needs where shared goals need to prevail.

This condition is not the fault of our leaders, but represents something against which they must struggle, because otherwise they will become Left-converged by those who, despite taking a hard-Right direction, do not understand — or do not care — about the meaning of the Right, and will convert it into the same old herd behavior that is the basis of Leftism.

The only solution to this behavior is to aggressively point ourselves toward clear goals and to extend our ideas to their logical conclusions, as this effectively excludes the neurotic intermediate steps favored by the herd. With a purpose, we do not fall prey to the swarm behavior of the aimless herd; without it, we become exactly what we were formed to oppose.

“Unite The Right” Went Better Than People Think

Monday, September 4th, 2017

We live in a relative universe where it would not be possible to have good without having bad, and sometimes to see what is good, you have to see who the bad guys are. This is what happened in Charlottesville, and it is why the Alt Right is rising: despite the media chiming in about Nazi flags and “Jews Will Not Replace Us” chants, the world shrugged and thought, “If other ethnic groups can have identity politics, I guess it’s only fair that white people do as well.”

This flipped the narrative.

Among other things, it rendered the Nazi flags obsolete because now simple statements of European identity are something the media fears more, and so the Hollywood Nazis have lost their power. It introduced many people to the idea of European identity politics which, when presented by well-spoken normal-looking people wearing polo shirts, seems less of a hateful diatribe than another take on a political scene that desperately needs different ideas to escape from its echo-chamber ideological spiral.

Even more, it showed us who the bad guys were. The media, government, police, and big corporations are all on one side, designing a technocratic egalitarian utopia which sounds as boring as Soviet architecture. On the other side were normal people arguing for an organic view of human life which emphasizes positive values, in contrast to the resentment politics of the Left.

It also showed us that our authorities are negligent and seek to instigate violence:

The vast majority of our people enter Lee Park and begin socializing. The shield wall takes up a defensive position at the entrances to Lee Park. This was due to the failure of the police to enforce a neutral barrier. You can also see the shield wall race into the crowd to rescue people who are attacked. #UniteTheRight protesters actually show little interest in engaging with the Antifa.

I’ve been to dozens of events and have never seen anything resembling the policing on display in the video below. It is incomprehensible. Everywhere else I have been the police established and enforced a neutral barrier. It makes even less sense when you consider the fact that the Department of Homeland Security warned McAuliffe and Charlottesville about the potential for violence.

At every protest where Antifa were unmasked, violence did not occur; at Charlottesville, where the police not only refused to unmask Antifa as required by state law but also pushed the two groups together, violence and chaos resulted. This was their plan: the Leftist mayor wanted to cause violence, then goad the Leftist media into blaming it on the Right, so that Leftist government would act against the Alt Right. This failed because the public did not pick up the media outcry, and Donald Trump made a statement about bad actors “on both sides,” implicitly condemning Antifa for their part in instigating the mess.

This negligent policing is going to get these cities sued at some point, but we are lucky they did it. America woke up to a media narrative about Right-wing violence, and saw the opposite, at which point the Left turned on Antifa because politicians like Nancy Pelosi realizes that the Left thrives in the polls, like Angela Merkel, on appearing to be a stable order who is holding back the bad guys who want to take over and wage race war and Holocaust 2.0.

It was the reaction to Charlottesville, rather than the event itself, which fully put the Alt Right on the map: people took the Alt Right seriously and became more vocal in their criticism of the Leftist ideal of multiculturalism, which is to most minds unfair if it allows one group to have an identity and self-advocacy and denies it to another group.

When you get normal-looking people marching on the streets and saying, “If every other group can have identity politics, we want that right, too,” then you have a rebellion against the dominant paradigm which is going mainstream; it’s not weird guys on meth, living in trailers and dating their sisters, planning for the great race war because they have personally failed at life, as the media narrative repeats to us daily.

Years ago, some rebellious students founded The Hessian Studies Center with two objectives: to parody identity politics, and to encourage the study of heavy metal:

The Hessian Studies Department believes that any truly diverse multicultural population will contain representatives of this world-wide underground culture, with its rich and spanning historical and social contributions.

The Alt Right is similarly part comedy and part serious: we believe that European-descended peoples have the same need for ethnic self-determination as other groups, and by doing this, we turn multiculturalism against itself and reveal it for the parodic idiocy that it is. If we can have black, Asian, Hispanic, LGBT+ studies and other advocacy groups, college majors and politics, why not white versions of the same?

Maybe we can make the casserole our symbol. White people can show up and do typically white things like program computers, have block parties, go to museums, watch nature documentaries and trade stock tips. By adopting the normal white guy attire of polo shirts, slacks and loafers, the white studies team is winning the war of optics.

The point is that either no group gets an identity — this is what assimilationists want, believing that if we unite people with economic and legal systems, they all become good citizens who carry on whatever it is that we’re doing — or every group gets its own identity, and there is no way for these groups to exist, but instead they will each live in balkanized “Chinatowns” if not their separate continents.

Americans and Europeans have opened their countries and their wallets and hearts to The Diversity Project only to find their countries broke, themselves marginalized and discriminated against, and their societies converted into alien places that do not resemble any form they recognize from the past. Diversity has failed.

The police at “Unite the Right” were the bad guys, hired by Leftist unions and commanded by a Leftist mayor, and this meant that the Alt Right was the scrappy underdog in an old American trope updated for the present era. The bad guys bet on the wrong trend because they were looking at society as it was during the early Obama years, when praising diversity was a path to government approval and success, and not the later Obama years, when the wreckage of Leftism and diversity left people overworked, feeling persecuted and exhausted.

By the end of Obama term #2, people worldwide had seen quality of life in America collapse alongside American prestige, in the hands of a government which not only refused to recognize the problem, but was doubling down on its ideological agenda. Instead of having fewer racial troubles because it elected a black president, America experienced all of them but worse as a Leftist/minority coalition, emboldened by multicultural propaganda, went on the warpath.

Ironically, this came about because of the rise of neoliberalism, which hybridized socialism and capitalism to make a conservative type of society which was waging war for Leftist ideals:

The book’s central indictment is that President Clinton, in submitting his welfare, budget, and tax bills from 1995-1997, “signaled surrender: the Reagan revolution was going to achieve its major goals.” The Reagan neoliberal program of small government, tax cuts, deregulation, free trade, and monetarist financial policies was more than just consolidated. In signing the Welfare Reform Bill of 1996 and the subsequent 1997 budget compromise, Clinton broke the back of the New Deal. The government commitment, however modest and poorly implemented, to protect the poor against the worst ravages of the market was thus ended. A central redistributional bargain crumbled as well: the top 20 percent of income earners in the United States would gain after-tax relief, while the bottom 20 percent of Americans would further suffer the marginalization of deepening poverty.

Presidents after Clinton essentially followed his ideal: keep the core of the economy capitalist, then tax the heck out of it and use that to buy the allegiance of a permanent underclass of third world minorities, blue-haired obese feminists, pajama boys and angry single women. This same coalition brought Obama into power and, heavily employed by media and academia, quashed notice of the failure of these policies.

This unstable situation morphed into globalism, or a worldwide extension of both American capitalism and the Leftist ideology, creating misery everywhere as it produced Soviet levels of demands for obedience to dogma while reducing the quality of life for most. Third world nations found themselves lifted up, only to become overpopulated sources of raw labor, and discarded as soon as costs rose; the first world discovered that it was planned to be the host for the world, importing that cheap labor to drive the fires of industry and pay the taxes that bought votes for Leftist leaders.

Globalism brought itself down because of its tendency to homogenize humanity, which put it at odds with the idea of multiculturalism, which is that different cultures would exist. This paradox detonated when it confronted those in minority-majority cities, who realized that the dynamic was not white-versus-black, but many groups, each striving for its own control, laws, leaders, culture and values:

When I recently mentioned, to a friend at the local Pacifica radio station in Houston, the “melting pot” as a concept that had worked well for us throughout most of our history, I was met with utter befuddlement, and the firm rejoinder, “But we should all hold onto our cultures!”

When minorities become the majority, we see that the narrative is not as simple as white oppression of the other, but many others, all struggling against everyone else, because biology, genetics, standards and desires differ. One cannot have multiculturalism and make war against Islam, nor can one be multicultural and deny the right of Germany to be German.

The “diversity is our strength” mantra hit the floor, and the Alt Right has picked up the narrative and re-directed it toward a future where we can escape both multiculturalism and globalism.

Why National Socialism and White Nationalism Have Become Obsolete

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

In the weeks after the Charlottesville protest, which will prove to be a pivotal event in human history, several movements have become obsolete and not because they are being censored by government, media and corporations.

Neo-Nazism, white nationalism, National Socialism and White Supremacy have died. In their place has risen something much more threatening to the status quo: the awakened interest of Western European people in having their own civilization. This includes the knowledge that diversity, democracy, consumerism, tolerance and other equality-based ideas make it impossible to have that civilization.

For many years, WN/NS have coexisted with our media in a symbiotic relationship: when the news gets slow, the Hollywood Nazis show up and do something outrageous, which allows the media to have a conniption fit and sell tons of newspapers and internet ads because people are terrified that Hitler has showed up among us to genocide our Jews and enslave our African-American citizens.

The reality is that the people who have showed up tend to be insignificant, except for the fact that they can get media attention and then, in a mirror image of the SPLC and ADL, solicit donations from those who realize that diversity is unworkable and want an alternative. The whole thing is a big scam on both sides, except for a few True Believers who are worth paying attention to.

But in the last seventy years, WN/NS have done nothing but drive away the normal, well-adjusted upper half of middle class citizens who make all the decisions in our society. When you look out and see angry proles, you do not care if they are Communists or Nazis, because you realize that they are marginal at best and probably unstable.

The rise of a cluster of movements — Neoreaction, the Alt Right, Traditionalism and Identitarianism — show us that people desire the ability to speak in favor of social order, which general includes taboo ideas like nationalism and traditionalism, instead of the barely contained anarchy that is our democratic, consumerist and diverse society.

When the Alt Right showed up in Charlottesville, the Nazis among them did not define the day, although the media and Hollywood Nazis both wanted that to be the case. What defined the day was the the Alt Right, dressed in preppy clothes and snarky like college students, created an even more extreme reaction than WN/NS could garner, and this made the WN/NS elements obsolete.

Consider this as a simple question of economics. If you have two products, and one suddenly does everything that the other does and more, then why keep using the less effective product? WN/NS has been priced out of the market by the Alt Right, which communicates in a language that normal people can appreciate and avoids the extremism, violence and insanity of the majority of WN/NS groups.

The Alt Right is not calling for genocide, warfare and discrimination. The Alt Right simply points out some taboo aspects to reality: the diversity does not work despite centuries of effort and trillions of dollars in aid, that democracy creates a parasitic and tyrannical government, that promiscuous and selfish behavior is ruining our future. These truths themselves terrify egalitarians.

In other words, the Alt Right offers what people wanted from WN/NS, but gives much more. It offers a hopeful future vision, where diversity ends peacefully and a transition of power occurs, and Leftists resettle to the third world. It gives reasons for those ideas, and points out the obvious failings of our society by making fun of them in the grand tradition of savage humor.

Where WN/NS promised instability, the Alt Right offers stability. Part of this is that it did not eject the WN/NS from its ranks, but simply removed their power and made their ideologies obsolete, so that their best option is now to join the Alt Right and give up the unstable and sadistic aspects of their belief systems. They can no longer command the cameras by simply stepping out with flags and regalia. They are obsolete.

It is natural that conflict begins at the edges of society where antisocial behavior thrives. The man who is making a half-million a year notices the same problems that the man making a twentieth of that and living in a trailer does, but the first man has options and chooses to avoid conflict by escaping the problem. That has ended with the accelerating Leftist takeover of government.

The antisocial behaviors common to WN/NS are no longer needed. The upper half of the middle class is open to the idea that Western Europeans should live apart from others, that everyone else must go home, that our behavior needs an upgrade, and even that we need leadership more competent than what democracy can provide. They are not interested in cruelty, bigotry and a proclivity for violence however.

We have bypassed the conventions of those edges of society, including antisocial and cruel behavior, and gone for the middle. People in the middle want function above all else, and respond to practical ideas that are also favorable in the long term. These people have sleeping in them the ancient spirit, and secretly desire a Lord of the Rings style anarcho-monarchist and traditionalist society, which requires rule by culture and not markets or the popularity contest that resembles a market, which in turn requires identitarianism, or selecting the population by both ethnic heritage and cultural compatibility in parallel.

Many of us have for years criticized WN/NS as being excessive about the wrong things and weak about some important things. We were waiting for something better to come along. During the past few months, the Alt Right has had an internal debate about its future, and the issue has been decided by the fact that we neither need WN/NS, nor want their instability. We have a better path.

Folk Heroes Of The Apocalypse

Monday, August 28th, 2017

Many people are currently telling you that the Alt Right is doomed, but they are only partially correct. The Alt Right is growing, and will become the Right, because it finally beat the civil rights warriors of the 1960s. It did that by assuming the position that those social warriors took: as the victims of an Establishment, and the folk heroes who would liberate us all.

In 2017, European-descended peoples are really tired of the diversity gig. It always works out that a few white people end up paying for a vast horde of third world people at the same time that diversity, by lowering social trust, destroys the white society by making it paranoid. This means that on an individual level, at an existential level, white people live in fear and uncertainty for the future.

They are now tired of this. We have seen where Leftist programs like diversity, social benefits and equality lead, which is to a Soviet-style society, and so we are fighting back. The only problem is that now we are the revolutionaries against a system filled with dimwitted bureaucrats who are making a good living by being Leftism, Inc. and they do not want to cede that role. This applies whether they are Democrats (socialists) or Republicans (liberals).

You can see that the tide has turned because today, in normally Left-leaning “Pravda on the Potomac” newsrag The Washington Post, there is an article entitled “Black-clad antifa attack peaceful right wing demonstrators in Berkeley,” which is notable for several major reasons:

  1. They noted that Antifa were the attackers.
  2. They acknowledged the Right-wing demonstrators as peaceful.
  3. They called them “right wing demonstrators” instead of “white supremacists” or another dogwhistle term.

Holy mackerel, this is unbelievable. The above changes represent either the longest typo in the history of the world, or the media hedging its bets because it has seen how popular the Alt Right has become. The latter makes more sense because in the 1990s, anyone demonstrating along neo-Nazis would have been written off immediately. In the 2010s, people are less bothered by the Nazis

And although the anti-hate and left-wing protesters largely drowned out the smaller clutch of far-right marchers attending a planned “No to Marxism in America” rally, Sunday’s confrontation marked another street brawl between opposing ends of the political spectrum — violence that has become a regular feature of the Trump years and gives signs of spiraling upward, particularly in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville.

“I applaud the more than 7,000 people who came out today to peacefully oppose bigotry, hatred and racism that we saw on display in Charlottesville,” Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguín said in a statement. ” … However, the violence that small group of protesters engaged in against residents and the police, including throwing smoke bombs, is unacceptable. Fighting hate with hate does not work and only makes each side more entrenched in their ideological camps.”

Last May, 150 similarly black-clad agitators caused $100,000 worth of damage when they smashed through Berkeley protesting a University of California Berkeley speech by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. Portland, Ore., has been the scene of street battles between antifa and white nationalists this summer. White nationalist Richard Spencer was sucker-punched by a protester in a January video that went viral. And Inauguration Day 2017 in Washington, D.C., was marked by violence when masked protesters burned vehicles, smashed windows and clashed with police, leading to 231 arrests.

Unbelievable. Amazing. Stunning. This shows the media reporting what they absolutely refused to in the past, which is the possibility that more than one side exists. Granted, they like to get the core message in there — “Fighting hate with hate does not work and only makes each side more entrenched in their ideological camps” — because their hope is for a return to centrist politics, so that over time as the voters go to sleep again, the Left can resume its steady infiltration and takeover of everything to the left of Charlemagne.

Public opinion is shifting toward the Right. The last eight years just showed us what all those nice people really intended to do in the 1930s and 1960s, which is make us into the Soviet Union. This caused people to lose faith in freedoms, civil rights, liberties and pluralism as a means of protecting them from the insanity of human social collapse. They no longer want democracy; they want order, and only the Right delivers order, because only the Right believes in an organizational level above the atomized individual.

In part, the reason opinion is shifting is that the Baby Boomers are retiring, and people who grew up under the disaster that the 1960s created are rising. Skipping the Millennials, most of whom seem to have taken what they were taught in school and Wikipedia as gospel, Generation X and Generation Z are appalled by the adult world they were expected to enter, because they realize that in this world, nothing good wins, ever, and most people are crazy and most of what we do is merely for show and has no value.

This is not a political revolt, but a social one inspired by the fact that the existential experience of European-descended peoples — how we think about the future, the meaning we find in life, the hope we have of being relevant — has declined radically over the past two centuries, and the situation now is too bad to endure. We are turning to politics because the crazy people who run our society have made daily life (jobs, marriages, dating, socializing, public life) into a uniquely placid and pacifistic form of Hell, and we want out. But the only way out is to overthrow the crazy Leftist regime ruling over us.

Among other things, the brightest of these generations have turned toward the Alt Right:

Among many anti-racists, there has long been a naïve hope that racism is handed down from one generation to the next. If that cycle is broken, this view goes, then racial harmony can finally prevail.

…Far from defending the ideas and institutions they inherited, the alt-right—which is overwhelmingly a movement of white millennials—forcefully condemns their parents’ generation. They do so because they do not believe their parents are racist enough.

…To complicate matters further, many people in the alt-right were radicalized while in college. Not only that, but the efforts to inoculate the next generation of America’s social and economic leaders against racism were, in some cases, a catalyst for racist radicalization. Although academic seminars that explain the reality of white privilege may reduce feelings of prejudice among most young whites exposed to them, they have the opposite effect on other young whites.

In other words, the Alt Right is not the ancient specter of racism rearing its head, but the result of people who are not racist but then encounter diversity and the half-socialist hybrid of a Leftist society that we live in, and decide that both are broken. This is why the Alt Right so heavily embraces social issues like chastity, discipline, morality, cleanliness and most of all, order. We grew up in the disorder of failed marriages, clandestine affairs, soulless jobs, constant ethnic resentment, high taxes paid to subsidize parasites, heart-crushing dating, urban blight and crass mass culture, and we hate all of it. We want something that works instead.

A recent poll by ABC News and the Washington Post revealed that attitudes are changing toward the far-Right in gradual but steady steps:

Additionally, 9 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll call it acceptable to hold neo-Nazi or white supremacist views, equivalent to about 22 million Americans. A similar number, 10 percent, say they support the so-called alt-right movement, while 50 percent oppose it.

Twenty years ago, the numbers of those who outright oppose the Alt Right would have been much higher, and few who have admitted that neo-Nazi or white supremacist views were acceptable in any form.

The poll reveals the separation of views along ethnic and ideological lines, which makes sense given how we see Leftist whites and minorities forming the bulk of the Antifa who vandalize and riot their way across America, and protesters against Alt Right events:

Trump has 44 percent overall approval among whites vs. 22 percent among nonwhites, including just 11 percent among blacks. On Charlottesville the pattern also is similar – 35 percent approval from whites, 14 percent among nonwhites and a single-digit 8 percent among blacks.

…Trump’s approval rating overall drops from 80 percent among Republicans to 34 percent among independents and 12 percent among Democrats; it’s 67-27-16 percent moving from conservatives to moderates to liberals.

The country is divided: on one side, white Democrats who are still hammering on the 1960s message of inclusiveness, and minorities; on the other, Republicans and a new audience who have realized that if each group gets to have “identity politics,” European-descended people need an identity too, and this means divorcing themselves entirely from those who are not European-descended.

Unfortunately for the Left, they are now in the place that conservatives have been since the French Revolution, which is the unenviable role of defending the wisdom of the past against the trends of the moment, and arguing for the preservation of an imperfect society against those who damaged it and now want to finish the job. The Left, after having made themselves powerful enough to alter society, pointed to the results of failing Leftist ideas and claimed that those failures were the result of capitalism and conservatism, and so were able to style themselves as revolutionaries attempting to overthrow a failing system.

Now the shoe is on the other foot; it is obvious even to outside observers that Leftism ideals dominate academia, the lower levels of government, the media, every non-white group, and even many of our largest corporations. The Alt Right are the underdogs, the little guys, the brave few who dare to say that the Emperor has no new clothes after all, and this makes people sympathize with them, especially since the Leftist system is achieving bad results across the board which are hidden by a lap-dog media, and has no intention of changing course, which makes it an old calcified geezer ranting about ideological purity while everyone around him starves.

In another strangely sympathetic article in the mainstream press, the idea behind the Alt Right is revealed in its simplest form:

…”[The Alt Right] think that liberalism and diversity have led to the decline of Western civilization.”

What people are starting to realize is that Leftism — the notion of human equality — naturally leads to diversity. “Workers of the world, unite!” as the unions used to say. The Left views race through the filter of class, and to them the goal is class warfare which puts the proles on top and the natural elites on bottom (we have seen this in Obama’s America through relentless pro-diversity affirmative action styled programs) and this requires accepting all as equal, and using diversity to shatter any culture or heritage that people have in common.

Culture limits class warfare. You might see someone with more money than you, but think, “He’s one of us, and he’s not a bad guy, so I’m not against him.” If he is also a positive contributor to your community, you can see it as not just fair but intelligent that he has more money and power. Diversity erodes that.

The Alt Right takes a different approach to anti-Leftism, which is to create a cultural wave like the Polish Dissident movement which helped overthrow Communism. It combines all things that existed before the Left — order, hierarchy, culture/nationalism, civilizational morality, family focus, spirituality — and champions those while mercilessly mocking the gap between what Leftists promise and what they deliver.

It is this mockery which has inspired a wave of censorship against the Alt Right, but most Americans values free speech over safe places, and so the Left is driving a wedge between those who desire a normal, healthy and organic society and its own SJWs and SWPLs, who want an anarchic State-sponsored perpetual lynch mob.

From this division, people are starting to reject those things which came before the current Left and enabled it, because they realize that these were not accidental correlations. Any Leftist — egalitarian — ideas lead to full Leftism, which now we see revealed as something like Full Communism. The only solution is to rip out any idea or practice based on the notion of “equality,” which exists in mathematics but not reality, and apparently is the opposite of “quality.”

Even relatively staid paleoconservative Pat Buchanan has noted the link between equality, democracy and crazed Antifa Leftism. As he writes, faith in democracy is falling as the Left gains power, and proves to be a worse Establishment than any before it:

To another slice of America, much of the celebrated social and moral “progress” of recent decades induces a sense of nausea, summarized in the lament, “This isn’t the country we grew up in.”

Hillary Clinton famously described this segment of America as a “basket of deplorables … racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic…bigots,” and altogether “irredeemable.”

So, what still unites us? What holds us together into the indefinite future? What makes us one nation and one people? What do we offer mankind, as nations seem to recoil from what we are becoming, and are instead eager to build their futures on the basis of ethnonationalism and fundamentalist faith?

If advanced democracy has produced the disintegration of a nation that we see around us, what is the compelling case for it?

The answer of course is that America is gone. Leftism killed another one. “This isn’t the country we grew up in,” is beyond obvious, but the real story is that the old America is not coming back because it was based on an illusion, which is that we can all get along if we just adopt the same Constitution, sing the same songs, speak the same language, and use the same economic system. 2017 answers with a definitive “Nope.”

As everything fails at once, with a debt-ridden government presiding over a herd of selfish and oblivious citizens, those who are not products of the decay are uniting to oppose it. We want escape, but know that it will not leave us alone, so we are rising to take power and drive out the bad and replace it with the good. The Alt Right are folk heroes of this movement, even as all seems lost and the future uncertain.

Avoiding The Fate Of The Know-Nothings

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

The Alt-Right is in the process of taking over the Republican Party. It’s a hostile takeover to be sure. We’re making inroads with Americans and the Identitarians are shifting the debate on immigration in Europe. However, if the Alt Right is to truly become the mainstream political movement that the Left fears it can become, we must look to history to understand how to avoid the fate of the America Party, otherwise known as the Know-Nothings.

We must develop a coherent message beyond just immigration reform and white identity. Indeed if we are to fully engage white Americans we must understand that much of what concerns them isn’t just immigration, but the effects of immigration. We need to engage with them in terms of economics, as in, we need something to present beyond basic bitch conservative “lower taxes” and “fiscal responsibility,” as if those are anything more than marketing buzzwords. We need to engage with whites when it comes to education, both primary and secondary. We need to have a coherent healthcare solution, or at least the beginning of one. And ultimately, we need some kind of foreign policy for dealing with the Middle East, China, India (the rising power that’s often forgotten) and we need to be ready for a multipolar world where the United States is not the lone superpower.

To make this clearer, look at the difference in the success of President Trump and the failures of Wilders and Le Pen. Trump tied immigration to jobs in the rust belt states and to the need to control our borders. He did not win with immigration alone, but instead made it a part of a comprehensive strategy to “MAGA.” On the other hand Le Pen and Wilders were seen in their respective countries as immigration-only candidates and while it should be noted that Wilders’ Party for Freedom (PVV) did quite well, he did not win his election. Perhaps it will take a second election cycle in Europe for Europeans to embrace anti-immigration and anti-migration platforms, but it won’t happen without incorporating plans for other aspects of the population’s concerns.

White identity will be the defining issue of the next generation of Americans. We cannot afford to lose potential voters, many of whom will be former Democrats or libertarians, because we failed to make a comprehensive and coherent platform centered on issues of practical, real-world importance to whites.

So let’s look at the history of the Know-Nothing Party in the United States to make sure we can avoid their fate. First, they operated as an independent party. That was a little more feasible in the nineteenth century, but America was still effectively controlled by two major parties. The Know-Nothings were the response to rising anti-immigrant sentiment in the 1840s centering on the influx of Catholic Germans and Irish. This is what earned the party the label of anti-Catholic. And indeed this helped them do very well in the 1850s.

But their success was short lived.

The Know-Nothings broke along predictably geographic lines due to the issue of slavery. Anti-slavery members went Republican while pro-slavery members joined the Democrats. But is there an issue such as slavery that defines the twenty-first century? At first glance not really. It would seem the Alt-Right is situated in such a position that no major issue will destroy it. However, this isn’t necessarily true. The Second American New Right, a composite of Alt Right and Alt Lite, is fracturing as we’ve seen at the recent free speech rally in Washington DC, as well as at other rallies around the country.

The Alt Lite seems hell-bent on not only distancing themselves from the Alt Right, but by eliminating it from public spaces. The reason though is clear: the Alt Lite isn’t a right wing movement at all. They’re really no different than liberals. In fact you’ll often hear them claiming that they are classical liberals or that they are defending “Western values” but without mentioning that those values are the product of the European people.

The division will come and is in my opinion, already here. The Alt Right is rooted philosophically in a rejection of Enlightenment values such as democracy, equality, universalism, and “human rights.” By contrast, the Alt Lite struggles to hold on to anything other than a pro-Trump vision for the future. The breakup of the New Right will come as soon as the Alt Lite realizes they must either side with the liberals or side with the Alt Right. Civic Nationalism, the proposition nation, and other comfortable compromises are untenable.

As the breakup comes the Alt Right must be prepared to address issues of interest to whites across geographic, economic, and the social spectrum. If we fail to create meaningful policies centered on keeping whites as the majority in America we will find ourselves confined to the dustbin of history. We will find ourselves defending Spanish language debates between the GOP candidate and the Democratic candidate. Or we will find ourselves looking for ways to repatriate to the few countries in Europe that are, for now, resisting demographic replacement.
