A Lack of Self Awareness

Something is missing.

This is a good podcast as far as it goes, particularly with respect to the DACA fiasco.

But something is missing.  I did not hear the comment: “We here were naïve about Trump, we exhibited poor judgment, we were wrong and others who long ago identified the truth about Trump were right.”

But, no, they cannot do that.  But let me ask one question to the readers here.  Some of the readers of EGI Notes are, I assume, also readers of Amren (and other standard “movement” sites).  So, the question to you, dear readers, is this: Which site, months before the election, correctly identified Trump as an unworthy buffoon and beta race cuck; and which enthusiastically pro-Trump site told you that Trump was “the last hope for White America?”

You know the answer to that, don’t you?  You also know that you – and by “you” I mean the “movement” rank-and-file – will do nothing about it, and will continue to support a leadership that has let you down time and time again.

Truth be told, many years ago, the Legion Europa project attempted to reason with the “movement.”  Years ago, when I was interviewed by Robert Griffin for his book, I outlined the types of activities that racial activists can do – centered around those that look to the Legionary movement for inspiration and/or those also centered around community activism – to actually make a difference.  What happened?  The Legion Europa project was either ignored or attacked; the advice in Griffin’s book went for nothing, as if I was speaking to the wind. The “movement” did not like the message, no, actually, the “movement” did not like the messenger, so it was all for nothing.

And old saying: “Every nation gets the leadership it deserves”  The same applies to racial activists – all of you get the leadership you deserve.  And now, the American “movement” sits around and scratches its collective (empty) head and wonders how they got fooled once again by a false “man on white horse” hero.

And so, the “movement” talks about “pattern recognition” – without recognizing the patterns inherent in its own failures.

Can you recognize any patterns?  Good luck with that.

This is Serious

This all needs to change.

Thus, my recent supposition – made at the time with no knowledge of the details of these affairs whatsoever – that Morgan joining Counter-Currents is somehow fundamental to this feud has turned out to be correct.

I have no idea whether the accusations made in this post are true or false.  I have no idea whether the accusations made against Friberg are true or false. I have no definite idea whether O’Meara’s accusations against Spencer in the comments thread are true or false, but I believe the accusation that Spencer is a “CIA asset” is patently absurd.  Of course, I have no evidence that it’s not so.  I also have no evidence that Spencer isn’t really an alien from a planet circling a red supergiant star in the Andromeda galaxy.  Some things are more or less likely than others.  And read more through the comments section.  Besides the anti-Spencer “CIA plant” ranting, we also see rude and vulgar attacks against Greg Johnson (similar to the vile crap at Majority Rights), who is an excellent writer and nationalist theorist (albeit one who has soured on Sallis, but, hey, no one is perfect), other back-and-forth personal attacks, and the like.  All about personality; nothing about ideology.


Greg Johnson’s response.


I’ll give credit to Greg for this:


But the only way to “win” these sorts of public battles is not to get involved in the first place. And since I obviously failed at that, the second best option is to stop them before they escalate any further. So, for my part, it stops here.


I hope that’s correct.  But the Friberg-Spencer side have their arguments as well, and much of that focuses on Morgan.  Again, it seems to me as an outsider here that Morgan switching to Counter-Currents was an initiator of this sorry sequence of events.


Greg also writes:

And since criticism is inevitable, isn’t it better to get it from our friends now than from our enemies later?


Er…yes.  Exhibit one: Ted Sallis’ criticism of the “movement.”


And although I grant that there is definitely a place for barbs and mockery in driving home a well-argued point or skewering pretense and folly…


So, it’s not always “crazed bitterness?”

Apparently, there are no real consequences for wrongdoing in this movement. 


I’ve been saying that for years.  That’s what you get with a dysfunctional “movement” with affirmative action “leadership.”


A movement that seeks the renewal of white civilization should, at the very least, try to maintain a few minimum standards of civilized behavior. But the movement today resembles a post-apocalyptic wasteland in which warlords and their gangs fight for spoils.


Exactly.  And therefore isn’t vehement criticism of such a “movement” – including “barbs and mockery” – justified in “skewering” the “pretense and folly” of such a “movement?”


The original of this post was written before Greg Johnson’s response.  This version of my essay is not substantially different from this version (hardly different at all) – I still do not know who is right or wrong (both sides make plausible arguments but show minimal concrete evidence and I am not taking sides).  I am glad though I waited so I could link to Greg’s riposte. However, as you will see as I make my argument below, it really does not matter who is more in the right and more in the wrong here.  Someone here did wrong and the entire episode is a blight on the Alt Right and by extension the “movement” that the Alt Right has, unfortunately, become the predominant element in.  


For all these people’s criticisms and ignoring of that crazy shit-stirrer Ted Sallis, they are, by far – by an order of magnitude or more – “stirring the shit” more than I ever have.  And my “shit stirring” has always been about substantive issues – ideology or “movement” defectives and their unethical behavior. It’s not been a “movement catfight” of folks hurling accusations against each other.

And to me all these explanations seem incomplete.  Not that it matters for my final thesis of this post, but: what was the true origination of the Johnson-Spencer feud that seems to have predated this latest imbroglio? Why did Morgan leave Arktos for Counter-Currents? From an ideological standpoint, how does all of this background drama affect, for example, the (in my opinion unfortunate) embrace of narrow ethnonationalism by some of the people involved over the last few years?

Let us crudely divide the combatants in two camps.  First, we have the Spencer-Friberg-Jorjani-Arktos camp and then we have the Johnson-Morgan-O’Meara Counter-Currents camp.  Some very serious accusations and counter-accusations have been made in both directions.  As I’ve said, I have no idea where the truth lies here. I previously asserted on this blog that Spencer and Johnson should settle their differences for the good of racial nationalism; this obviously does not appear likely to occur.

What are the broad implications here?  Now, it is of course very possible that the storylines of both sides are mixtures of truth and falsehood.  Reality – particularly in these sorts of internal squabbles – is never so clear cut that one side is all pure moral goodness and the other side pure evil.  For example, imagine that the Counter-Currents side is mostly correct, but O’Meara’s accusation about Spencer is not true (which I believe it is not). Or maybe some of the Counter-Currents folks were bad-mouthing Friberg. On the other hand, if the Arktos side is essentially correct, it is still possible they are exaggerating and embellishing the “crimes” of the other side and taking things out of context.

However – and this is the key pint – it is HIGHLY improbable, to the point of impossibility, that each side’s storyline is an exactly equal distribution of truth and falsehood; exactly 50:50.  In fact, it’s far more likely that one side is completely right and the other completely wrong than it is for there to be an essentially equal distribution of mixed truth and falsehood. In other words, it is most likely that one side of this conflict is mostly telling the truth (even if some embellishments and misleading “spin” is thrown in) and is in the right, and the other side is mostly lying and is in the wrong.  Oh, I guess it is theoretically possible the whole thing started out as a misunderstanding – but don’t you think that rational and disinterested players would have realized this and settled the matter by now if that was really the case? The situation is only getting worse – suggesting there is “real meat” to some of the accusations and/or there are some strong (financial) interests at stake.

As I said I do not know which side is the one mostly right.  And maybe, just maybe, in the broad scheme of things, it does not really matter.

What does matter is this.  If my understanding is correct and one side here – whichever side it is – is essentially in the wrong, that means that one major component of the Alt Right, one major faction of Der Movement, is in fact guilty of (some of) the serious accusations made against it.  From my perspective it really doesn’t matter which side it is – since I’m opposed to the Alt Right in general and opposed to Der Movement as it currently exists as well.

But, let us agree – both sides cannot be essentially right and ethical at the same time. Someone has done (serious) wrong; someone has been engaging in unethical subterfuge at the expense of the good of racial nationalism as a whole.  And, truth be told, even the (relatively) “innocent” faction (whichever it is) is not handling the situation well, as both sides are escalating the feud – the Arktos side keeps on running anti-Counter Currents articles at AltRight.com, while O’Meara is accusing Spencer of being a CIA plant.  They keep on “airing dirty laundry.”  So, even the “innocent” side – whichever it is – is in fact behaving more destructively than the dreaded Sallis ever has, with my tongue-in-cheek mocking ridicule of “movement” stupidities (which as we see has been justified).  They claim they are “restraining themselves,” threatening they could “disclose even more.” That’s great.  It’s a public site, read by everyone and anyone; keep it up, it’s obviously doing us all a world of good.


And guess what?  I could “disclose” many things as well, but choose not to do so.  What would it achieve?

Yes, the Alt Right spurns Sallis, thinks Sallis is crazy, and ignores Sallis. That’s great; you know, at this point, with all of this going on, I’ll consider it a compliment.


Indeed, as Johnson writes:


All things considered, though, it is better to sacrifice personal friendships than to weaken the movement as a whole.

Yes, indeed.  See the last few years of EGI Notes.

I for one do not have any financial interests in activism, I earn zero money from it (it is actually an opportunity cost taking time away from other endeavors) and I’m a third party disinterested observer to this whole mess. Do not misunderstand: I do not begrudge overt full-time activists from earning a living from activism.  Obviously, they must do so and they should do so.  In fact, if we want high-quality full time activists we need a situation where at minimum they can have a comfortable middle class existence, etc. But this should not be achieved through vicious squabbling over financial resources, unethical behavior, and the like (I also do not like constant Alt Wrong panhandling so that kosher conservative “activists” earn exuberant six figure professional-scale salaries while funneling money into the pockets of “writers” who are race-mixing child porn apologists).  From what I can see this feud is NOT over ideology or any grand statements of principle. It’s about personality, it’s about claims to leadership, it’s about the resources (such as they are) of Arktos, and it’s about money.

If it was actually about ideology and principle, then it would be at least understandable, if regrettable. But it is not.

And, I must say – the “rank and file” “movement” “activists” are to blame for this fiasco as well.  It are they who enable the “leadership,” it are they who add fuel to the fire of the feuds, it are they who keep on propping up a failed “movement” instead of looking elsewhere to people offering an alternative.

Fact is – one year after its “breakthrough” the Alt Right is a feuding muddy mess.  Who was skeptical of the Alt Right?  Who has been skeptical of Der Movement and its leaders?  Was this the same “crazy” and “bitter” person who warned you all that Trump was a vulgar beta cuck buffoon?

That’s OK though.  Double down on the Alt Right, scream “Hail Kek!,” draw some more Pepe cartoons, and let the affirmative action train keep on rolling along.  Here’s a comment from someone who understands.  Excerpt:

I don’t identify as Alt-Right – after all it isn’t an organised movement and has no clear manifesto, it’s a free for all of undisciplined rabble. It’s perfectly possibly to be Right wing and not Alt-Right. I think you find that the majority of Right wing people would never associate with such a trashy bunch of people. Teenagers might enjoy memes, but I think you will find that the adults have all the money…

All the rest of you get the “leadership” you deserve.  And you obviously are deserving of what you have.  Enjoy.

And let me rewrite this Johnson comment:

If the best among us had any conviction, people like Daniel Friberg would have never grown into the menace that he is today. If the best among us had any conviction, they would speak out against him. If the best among us had any conviction, then the worst among us — people like Friberg, Spencer, and Forney — would have no audience for their lies and no platform from which to broadcast them. They would have no credibility, no friends, no supporters, no authors, no podcasters, and the sole audience of the tabloid freak show at Altright.com would be the chan nihilists and Left-wing press they so eagerly cultivate.


As:

If the best among us had any conviction, people like Der Movement’s “leadership” would have never grown into the menace that they are today. If the best among us had any conviction, they would speak out against them. If the best among us had any conviction, then the worst among us — people like the “leadership” that’s failed us continuously for many decades — would have no audience for their lies and no platform from which to broadcast them. They would have no credibility, no friends, no supporters, no authors, no podcasters, and the sole audience of their tabloid freak show at Altright.com would be the Game/HBD/Nutzi nihilists and anti-racist freaks they so eagerly cultivate as show opposition.


My advice to third party observers such as myself: be patient and wait until the Alt Right contagion, burns itself out.  This is, by the way, we need something like Codreanu’s Legion; we need the New Man, ethical and moral leadership. not something accurately described as a “freak show.”


Delenda est Alt Right.  This episode is a perfect reason why.

Der News: Rotten Orange, Silk Road, and Der Movement

Der Movement marches on.

Here is affirmative action in action – both sex and ethnic.

What choice did we have?” she asked. “I don’t apologize. … He said all the right things and nobody else would even say it.”

OK, fair enough, Mudshark Annie. Making a strategic decision to support Trump given his rhetoric during the campaign – one could understand that. But, here, my dear curry muncher, is the problem:

Coulter help drum up big support for Trump during the presidential campaign and wrote the book “In Trump We Trust,” in which she said she “worshiped” him with “blind loyalty.”

“I have no regrets for ferociously supporting him.”

How about – I don’t know – prudently supporting Trump without declaring your “blind loyalty” and how you “worship” him?

And, no, this is not “20-20 hindsight.”  I’ve been criticizing the “God Emperor” all along – as well as being exasperated with the “blind…worship” of him. Here are five posts which I made just in a period of several weeks in August 2016, representative of my skepticism:

It was always obvious what Trump was.  The disappointment of idiots like Coulter simply reflects their bad judgment (you know, bad judgement like dating Dinesh).  But Annie is a “wimmin” and “one of the gals” (the vaginized version of “one of the boys”) so she’ll get a free pass, while those who actually did know better long ago are castigated as “bitter” and “insane.”  It’s all a mystery!

More on the Jew-Chinese-Trump axis of Silk Road anti-Whitism.  To borrow the language (in a more dignified fashion) of a certain love-struck Silker blogger, one can say that the Silkers are “fellating Jewish phallus.”

This what you get when you worship “dem wimmin” in De Movement.  Is Jef going to make Pettibone breakfast?  Affirmative action cuts all ways, doesn’t it?

“Just ask…straight out.”  First, as if that’s the way to get to the truth, and second, who cares if an airhead has an affair with a Derb-wanna-be?  Oh, that’s right, Roissy cares. What I care about is racial activism, and how vagina-worship from thirsty betas introduces stupidity – well, more stupidity than is normally present.

The Asinine Alt Right, 5/13/17

More stupidity from the Alt Right.

Trump has always been a one-way man-crush for the Alternative Right. 

That’s true enough.  But only Trump?  Can we forget Reagan?  No, Ron Paul, no, I mean Rand Paul, no, really I mean Trad Vlad playing his “deep chess game” by rallying the world against “neo-Nazism.”  Now it’s Trump. This pathetic fanboy obsession, this Man on White Horse Syndrome, is a sign of weak-minded individuals who cannot stand harsh reality and who have to find comfort in a Big Daddy to save them (Hint: The origin of religion. Fear of death, fear of life, fear of struggle, fear of overcoming…Big Daddy and his son Jaysus will save you).

Like a beta orbiter fuming in his bedroom that a girl who is only dimly aware of him has “betrayed” him by acting on her own initiative and taking someone else to the prom, the “Honeymoon is definitely over” (Mike Enoch’s phrase) is only of the Alt Right’s volition. The Honeymoon is only over insofar as the Alt Right has read motivations into Trump’s Syria strike that are purely speculative and likely do not exist. The Alt Right can only remain TrumpTrain passengers, able to pile on weight to increase momentum, but not much else. So why bail now, so early into his Presidency?

Those of us who identified Trump from the very beginning as a vulgar ignorant buffoon with no philosophical foundation, a Negro-loving beta race cuck with strong Jewish family connections, those of us who are not quota queens and who have something called “judgment” – we do not have to “bail” since we were never on board the pitiful “TrumpTrain” to begin with. The ONLY thing useful about Trump was the perception of him by the masses, and the right-wing populism he ignited among his supporters, which is why I rejoiced over his victory – it showed that some White Americans would support a candidate labeled as a “racist fascist.”Trump himself: a moron. Trump: a two scoops-of-ice-cream-eating fat bastard who doesn’t have an ounce of sense in his orange-hued head.  And Der Movement’s obsession with this buffoon should permanently disbar Der Movement from any serious consideration as a vehicle for White racial interests.

The one-way, ideologically blinkered rationale that Trump has bent the knee to the “kikes” is an allegation born of circumstance. However, Trump cannot afford ideology. He is the President of the United States, and Richard Spencer is an otherwise unemployed activist. 

In the end, Spencer is likely to end up promoting White racial interests more than Trump ever will.  And this Spencer-bashing is getting old and reeks of envy. If you are going to critique Spencer, do so for legitimate reasons: the Alt Right itself is a disaster and not worthy of his time, the switch from Radix to AltRight.com was a terrible mistake, and he should never have fraternized with the Alt Lite/Alt Wrong to begin with.

Trump has responsibilities that are formalized by holding office, and the figures of the Alt Right are able to freewheel and dispense speculation and ideology as they please. Trump was elected to MAGA, not to immediately force through an isolationist agenda because it suits the Alt Right’s prejudices and one-track thinking. 

You can’t MAGA by doing everything and anything in opposition to what is necessary to MAGA.  It’s not like Touchback Trump simply bombed Syria and did nothing else wrong. He’s been reneging on virtually all his campaign promises, he is absolutely wasting his political capital on Neoconservatism, he’s cucking big time, and he’s behaving like a juvenile jackass on top of it. MAGA?  Really?

Trump, according to TRS, Spencer, and Counter-Currents (I don’t keep up with the Stormer) has betrayed his loyal fans and acquiesced to Israeli influence. I don’t believe he has done any such thing, and now that the last debris of the last Hebrew Hammers has been swept away, I think it is clear that the Alt Right’s hysterics have been totally premature and unjustified.

The only hysterics come from Trump fanboys whose fervor belies some deep psychosexual disturbances.

Let us consider some geopolitical realities. The United States is a maritime power whose strength is primarily projected through its allies. 

Complete retardation.  America’s allies don’t do “jack shit,” they depend on us, not the other way around. They project nothing.  They’re passive.   America’s strength is based on its military, and whatever remnants of international prestige and economic power it retains.

The only reason it can rack up trillions of dollars in debt is because of the strength of the petrodollar, which BRICS and those in their spheres of influence have been gradually building the infrastructure and alliances to circumvent. The dollar and the stability of NATO and North America as an economic whole is constantly under direct threat of being knocked off the perch of world leadership by a multipolar alliance.

More Neocon-economic blather.

The Alternative Right is also blinkered to the point of idiocy if it believes that the subsequent economic stagnation and eventual collapse would be to its benefit. 

No, we should instead embrace the genocidal status quo, as long as it makes everyone real comfy and all.

Should the West’s standing on the world stage diminish to the point of dollar and euro irrelevance – two currencies wedded on a multi-tier cake of military adventurism, arms sales, and technical innovation – the Alt Right would likely succumb to retrograde paramilitary, revolutionary fanatics, and get utterly smashed in a failed stab against “ZOG.” 

Let’s prop up the System, because if it collapses, we may actually have to do something to finish it off, and we certainly can’t have that.  On the one hand, this author dismisses the current Alt Right has unemployed misfits fuming in their bedrooms over their lost Trump love; on the other hand, being “revolutionary fanatics” is no good either.  Just sit down, shut up, consume, watch sports on the “telly” and be a good cog in the System machine. That’ll show ‘em!

For those that read the Saker, who rail against “AngloZionists,” the good news is that we are the AngloZionists. 

That’s true no doubt, literally true.

The only reason a few of us are able to support ourselves through Web readership and Alt Right pursuits is because military dominance keeps the lights on.

Therefore, in order to destroy the System, we must support that System completely, and make sure the System survives and prospers and continues onward, so the lights can stay on, so we can destroy the System…no wait….

My friends, this is affirmative action in action.  Ever experience an incompetent affirmative action Negro rambling incoherently?  How are Der Movement’s quota queens any different?

Yes, no doubt, our biggest concern must be the future of Iran.  The Alt Right is the biggest pile of “movement” horseshit imaginable.  Can we pull the plug on this train wreck, please?

It’s Der Failure

Digging deep into the “movement” woodpile.

I’d much rather Anglin would use this money for living expenses and to expand his business rather than throw it away on a lawsuit that he can never win. Basically, I tells the SPLC that all they need to do to drain the movement of capital is file nuisance lawsuits against our public figures. It is sad that our movement would not support Anglin to this amount until he got sued, and then only to raise money for lawyers, not for him.

Greg is correct about the danger of nuisance lawsuits.  However, we need to dig deeper here into this.  Anglin did not ask to be sued. Now, one could assert that Anglin’s actions against Gersh invited the suit, and fault him for that.

Let me be clear: in my opinion, Anglin did nothing wrong legally, and he did nothing wrong morally.  From what I’ve read, the only wrong incurred was against Spencer’s mother, who was – based on online public information and discussion – apparently the victim of a crude extortion plot against her property.  

But just because something is legally and morally justified does not mean it is wise.  Der Movement has a habit of starting fights it cannot win, of constantly backing down (hello, Mudshark Annie), of constantly being on the defensive, of constantly losing.  The whole Anglin lawsuit mess is another self-inflicted wound.

But let’s dig even deeper.  Perhaps the reason Anglin and followers engaged in juvenile jackassery – typical Alt Right lulzing trolling – was out of frustration that nothing could be done to remedy the injustice done to the Spencer family.  And whose fault is that?  Meet Der Movement.  If Der Movement had a proper legal infrastructure, Gersh could have been sued (instead of being the one suing Anglin).  If Der Movement had deep ties to the community and to law enforcement, and had people in poltical office, then pressure could have been put on the authorities to investigate if Gersh was, or was not, legally culpable for the situation with Spencer’s mother.  If the “movement” had something – anything – to show for decades of support, reaching into the millions of dollars, then it would be the other side who may well have been on the defensive, instead of once again having the “movement” on the defense, scrambling for support.

Let’s dig deepest of all.  Given the cucks of Montana, probably nothing could have been done, even though legal means.  But, but, but…I thought that all these “red states” are Whitopias, full of ethnically superior Hajnalites who are the salt-of-the-earth foundation of America’s racial renaissance.   Robert Mathews thought so – that is, before he got burned alive by the Reagan administration (you remember Reagan, the other Man on White Horse – “we won” Der Movement crowed in November 1980) in Washington state, that other bastion of the Northwest Imperative.

So, perhaps at the heart of the matter is an ethnic-genetic-biocultural phenomenon.  Who knows? Maybe the Alt Wrong have been right all along with their heavy breathing about “high trust hunter gatherers” – but rather than being a sign of racial superiority/strength, to the extremes exhibited by Montanans, it’s a cucking weakness.  And what about Der Movement’s failed leadership, its decades of unremitting failure and wasted millions of dollars? If (American) racial activism wants to lose the scare quotes and become a real movement, it needs to ditch the affirmative action program and draw leadership and top activist cadres from a broader base of the European-American population.

He’s Fallen Off His White Horse

The Trump administration is playing “4-D chess” indeed!  The problem is they are playing against White Americans, against their own base.

Cuckadoodledoo!

As disgusted as I am with Trump (but not surprised), I am far more disgusted with the “movement” and I am not going to shut up about, it, regardless of how much they wish I would.

How many people that I am aware of (there may be more, but I’m talking about myself and the major figures I follow, many key players) were warning against Trump – Trump the man as opposed to Trump’s populism and its supporters – from the very beginning?  There’s me, and there’s Strom, and maybe Duke, although Duke seemed to equivocate a bit closer to the election. That’s it – contra all the revisionist history being peddled now, by people who try to convince us that a few brief words in passing (saying once: “Trump may not work out like we wish”) are equivalent to consistent strong words of warning.  Sorry, it won’t wash.  

And how many people clearly identified the “movement’s” Trump worship with the continued repeated disappointments of the Man on White Horse Syndrome?  Insofar as I am aware, only me.  Strom, after all, had been previously caught up with Putin worship, and I am not aware if Duke made these connections. 

Repeating the same mistake over and over and over again, and then lambasting those few who have the foresight to warn you – that’s not a good sign of leadership, my friends.  That’s poor judgment.  All the quota queens with their breathless excitement, their “Trump is the last chance for White America” or “In Trump We Trust” or “Trump will make a real impact on America’s demographics” or, to a more extreme extent, Roissy’s homoerotic fanboy fanaticism, these are not the types you want leading you into battle. These are not the types you want making decisions that will determine the course of “movement” success (or, as is more likely, failure).  These are the affirmative action types who’ve run the “movement” into the ground, but the “movement” rank-and-file will continue to give them a “pass” because, well, you know…they’re “one of the boys.”

It’s going to be a bumpy ride.  I wonder who the next Man on White Horse hero will be. Right now, we’ll have to wait out the current heavy breathing over the new Joan of Arc, Marine Le Pen.  The stupidity never stops, it’s baked so deep into the “movement” that it’ll likely take decades to remove the stench of failure and futility.

Cue the chants of “Pepe!” and “Hail Kek” and asinine comments about Trump’s “deep chess game.”

Lulz, indeed.

Barriers To Improvement

A flawed business model.

According to the standard business model, when a business is incompetent, it will be out-performed by competitors, and eventually go out of business, being replaced by those more competent, effective competitors.

Why then does Der Movement and its quota queen “leadership” go on and on, despite a decades-long record of unremitting failure?

Some ideas (not meant to be a fully comprehensive list):

1. Der Movement is catering to a narrow niche market.  It wants to grow, certainly, but there is right now insufficient “open niche space” for new things to be easily tried (but with difficult effort all things are possible) and for new competitors to become established without running afoul of the heavy hand of monopolization.

2. There are strong barriers for entry to this market, thus barring the way for increased competition. Some of these barriers are external; e.g., social pricing and other forms of persecution from the System, which in turn makes it impossible for most people to be full-time activists, etc. These external pressures are not only a cause of “movement” dysfunction, but also a result of it: a more competent “movement” would have by this time developed approaches to at least partially resist some of these pressures. Internal barriers include the freakishness and defectiveness found in Der Movement, which is a major “turn-off” for the more sane, reasonable, and effective people who otherwise would become more deeply involved in it. Another internal barrier is reason #3.

3. Der Movement’s strict ethnic affirmative action program serves as a sort of “protectionist tariff,” preserving the quota queen monopoly, and which, together with the other internal and external barriers to market entry, prevent some effective competitors from getting a foothold in the market.  This is by no means a “free market” in any sense of the word “free.”

4. A deluded customer base that in some cases doesn’t even realize how badly it is being served and if they do realize it are unable to discern some of the reasons why  In fact, the customer base in in some cases actually complicit in the problems, by demonstrating defective freakishness, by supporting the affirmative action policy, and by enabling “leadership” dysfunction.

Educating the customer base would seem a reasonable first step toward beginning to alleviate these problems; however, expect the quota queens to resist any attempt to break their monopoly.
