A Lack of Competition

A car analogy.

I’m old enough to remember the days when foreign cars were relatively rare on American roads; most people drove vehicles produced by the big Detroit auto companies.  The quality of those products were horrendous.  Looking back to my childhood, it seems like my father’s cars were having major breakdowns every few months, necessitating costly repairs.  Cars lasted only several years before requiring replacement with another shoddy, shambling half-wreck (and these shoddy replacements were mostly new cars, not used). Everyone else was in a similar situation; a major topic of conversation was what problem your car had today.  My own first car was a used American model, of like kind, which died within several years of low-level use, with complete transmission collapse (literally).

Things changed with the Japanese car invasion.  Not only were the Japanese products themselves of a much higher quality, but the competition forced the American companies to produce cars that didn’t have a planned obsolescence period of three-to-six months.

Now, the alert reader may question my commitment to economic protectionism after these comments (by the way, I seem to remember the protectionist Buchanan being criticized for driving foreign cars), but that is not the point of this post. However, before moving on to the main topic, I will say this – protectionism should not be about preventing all foreign products from having access to the domestic market. High quality foreign products, which exhibit characteristics not typical of native production, should be welcome, if for no other reason as to spur native economic efficiency through the pressure of competition. No, the reason to be protectionist is to protect the domestic market from “competition” of cheap products made by Colored coolie labor, products of no better quality than the native brands (and often of lower quality), but so cheap that they undercut the native producers and drive them out of business.  The only competition there is merely to lower labor costs, not to improve quality, and that undercutting of cost and of a Western standard of living (and hollowing out of the native productive economy) should be targeted by protectionist policies.

And now the main point. I make an analogy between the car situation and “movement” “leadership.”  Just like the old days when there was little to no competition and the American automakers produced absolute trash, Der Movement’s affirmative action policy, and its concomitant lack of accountability, leaves us with “leaders” of the most abysmal character and ability.

All that is required of a Der Movement “leader” is to be of an Anglo-Germanic “Nordish” type, to spout fossilized “movement” dogma, and to seamlessly integrate into the good old boys network. Actual accomplishment, judgment, responsibility, and accountability mean nothing. Quality competition is artificially forced out of the marketplace, leaving the “leaders” no incentive whatsoever for quality control and improvement. They can be wrong about almost everything, make one terrible error after another, be exposed as to have done one unpleasant act after another, be shown to be inept and with questionable  judgment – and there are no consequences. The absolute worst that can happen is that they will be eclipsed by someone else exactly the same as them, who will behave just as badly, making the same errors over and over again.  Fungible incompetence.  Different face, same disgrace.

Obviously, competition is required to spur “movement” “leaders” toward quality control. Someone may ask: Why can’t all the parameters for the Nutzi crowd be met and the competition only come from “movement”-approved ethnicities?  In theory, that is possible; however, in reality, the number of Whites, of any ethnicity, who are of high quality and interested in racial activism is very low.  Most high quality Whites, people of accomplishment and ability, have thrown in their lot with the System and are concerned with their personal interests and status. This is why the “movement’s” affirmative action policy is so pernicious – it artificially constrains an already very limited pool of potential leadership candidates. There is only a handful of such people to start with, and eliminating a significant fraction of these due to affirmative action leaves too few to be sustainable. In the absence of the required sustainable pool of able candidates, we instead get the incompetents, freaks, and grifters. Sure, by making the “movement” more acceptable, weeding out the defectives, you’d create a positive feedback loop moving forward, possibly attracting quality potential leaders of any White ancestral background, including and especially the upper caste ethnicities. But, unfortunately, it seems like you will first need some competent leadership in order to get the virtuous cycle going. So, if competent leadership is the first step, then the whole process is stuck at the present status quo. The logjam must be broken in order to achieve success.

So, if you want the competition required to promote merit, quality, and ability in real leadership for racial activism, you have to open up leadership possibilities for everyone ostensibly part of the ingroup.  Ostensibly is the word, because it seems that some types of folks are around only to provide “D’Nations” or to provide some intellectual heft missing in the “leadership.” These lower-caste individuals are not taken seriously and would never actually be considered as potential leaders, never given that chance in any meaningful way.  

There’s no reason for anyone to get offended by this analysis; it is what it is. I am just reporting the reality. It is doubtful it will change any time soon; the rank-and-file are too invested in maintaining the status quo.  They like it, they support and enable the affirmative action program, so there’s no point trying to do anything about it. Just sit back, watch the Quota Queens ruin all they touch and run the “movement” into the ground, and just shake your head sadly and move on.

Enjoy the endless failure.  Imagine what cars in America would be like if the Japanese invasion never took place. Broken down jalopies spending more time in the repair shop than on the road. Back to the 70s!  The same for a “movement” where real competition for leadership positions is not allowed.

Race, Primer, and Der Movement

Welcome to July.

Primer movie – with subtitles that will get the HBDers and the Silkers all hot and bothered.

How the movie was made; note budget and crew size.

Filming

Principal photography took place over five weeks, on the outskirts of Dallas, Texas. The film was produced on a budget of only USD$7,000, and a skeleton crew of five. Carruth acted as writer, director, producer, cinematographer, editor, and music composer. He also stars in the film as Aaron, and many of the other characters are played by his friends and family. The small budget required conservative use of the Super 16mm filmstock: the carefully limited number of takes resulted in an extremely low shooting ratio of 2:1. Every shot in the film was meticulously storyboarded on 35mm stills. Carruth created a distinctive flat, overexposed look for the film by using fluorescent lighting, non-neutral color temperatures, high-speed film stock, and filters

Director/actor commentary on how the film was made.

What’s the point of this for Der Movement? A critically acclaimed and thoughtful independent film was produced with $7,000 – a drop in the bucket with respect to “movement” “D’Nations” – with a small film crew and many characters played by friends and family.  It would seem that the heroic “movement” should have the resources – certainly the money – to produce low budget quality films that have race-oriented storylines. After all, with all the big-brained, high-trust, superior ubermenschen leading the way, certainly we have the visionaries and drivers in charge to accomplish such goals, right?  We have been told that “movement” organizations are “getting things done,” so certainly $7,000 films are just waiting to be released, right?  You all just need to spend a bit less on this and you’ll have all the shekels you need to produce a steady stream of quality productions.

And now more general comments on race and Der Movement:

An Asian I can support.  Note that the Dalai Lama has also previously made remarks in favor of European preservationism.  Is that yet another reason (apart from the Tibet issue) that he is opposed by China (the favorite nation of the HBDers and the Silkers)?  After all, White has to decline so Yellow can rise, correct? The Occident must wane so that the Orient can wax.  Hail HBD!  Hail Silk Road White nationalism!  Hail China!  Hail!

Quota Queen promotes a fraud.  What else is new in Der Movement?

RT, and comment, if you are tired of mendacious Quota Queens who never admit they were wrong about Trump.

Note for the Queenies: Your God Emperor, the “last chance for White America,” is the President, the head of federal law enforcement.  It is only a slight exaggeration to say he can end the reign of terror overnight; most accurate to say he can, overnight, take steps definitely leading to ending the terror.  Same difference.  He does nothing.  He either doesn’t care that his own supporters are being attacked in the streets, and sent to the hospital, with impunity; or he actually approves of it.

Can you imagine what Trump’s DOJ would do to any American “Neo-Nazis” that did anything even remotely similar to this?  Antifa Don Trump: America’s first Antifa President.  The fact that the pathetic losers who have supported Trump in lickspittle fashion for years have not been held to account proves the truth of all I’ve written about Der Movement’s affirmative action policy.

By the way, my question to Kevin Strom yesterday about Der Movement’s affirmative action program still stands.  Come on, Kevin, you were on of the few people, like me, who called out Trump as a fraud before the election.  You can now have the moral courage to call out the “movement’s” quota system – the sooner you do it, the better for the cause you have dedicated your life to.

Der Questions for Der Movement

In all cases, emphasis added.

See this excellent and powerful Strom piece.  One part particularly caught my attention:

We need a strong, organized, racially conscious White community in every state, in every city. When we are much stronger, much larger, and much better organized, then even the most venal of politicians will be afraid to cross us. We will have businesses that bring in hundreds of millions per year, not just hundreds of thousands. We will have our own media providing not just racially-oriented news and commentary, but every kind of information and entertainment and advice and anything you can think of, in depth and with an implicit (and often explicit) pro-White perspective. That’s where we need to be. That’s what we need to do. In the words of the old union men who stood for White labor against Gilded Age leaders who betrayed their own Folk, we need to organize, organize, organize.

And National Alliance members are doing exactly that, all over North America.

I have some questions for Kevin Strom. These questions are coming from someone who has been involved in pro-White activism for a quarter-century, who has met your mentor Pierce, and who has praised you for the positive effect that your 1990s ADV broadcasts had on my activist development.  So this is not coming from a direction of hostility.

1. I understand that there may be things the National Alliance is currently doing that you cannot talk about publicly and – who knows? – maybe your group is really making the headway you claim.  But based on my experience with Der Movement, color me skeptical (no offense).  Do you really believe that your group is “doing exactly that” – all the things that you have described?  Really? Or that there is even the slightest possibility in the reasonable future that even the smallest fraction of these goals will be achieved?

2. With endless decades of “movement activism,” utilizing millions of dollars of donations and membership dues, and millions of man hours of effort, why hasn’t ANY of the above mentioned goals been even partially accomplished?  And that includes the efforts of Pierce and his incarnation of the National Alliance.  Are you aware that your other mentor, and friend, Revilo Oliver made a video discussing 50 years of “movement” failure…said video being made 50 years ago?

3. Why should we expect anything to be different now?

4. Do you admit that there is an ethnic affirmative action policy in the “movement,” particularly with respect to leadership, favoring individuals deriving from Northwest European (especially Anglo-Germanic) ethnic groups?

5. What has the National Alliance learned (if anything) from past failures?

Ethnonationalist filth attacking Spencer:

The majority of European nations, including the entire Schengen Area, and nations with nationalist governments, have banned Spencer and condemned his “racial European” message and his call for a “white racial empire”. While promoting his message in a controversial speaking tour in Hungary, Spencer was mocked by the Hungarian newspaper Népszabadság for his call for “a white Imperium” through a revival of the Roman Empire, and for his claim to be a “racial European”, ideas that the newspaper called contrived and without any basis in European history. In the aftermath of the controversy, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán pressed through legislative measures which banned his entry and condemned Spencer. The government of Poland has also banned him from entering the country and condemned Spencer, citing Spencer’s Nazi rhetoric, the anti-Polish and anti-Slavic racism of the Nazis, and the Nazis’ genocide of Slavic Untermenschen during World War II. In July 2018, Spencer was detained at Keflavík Airport in Reykjavík, Iceland en route to Sweden and was ordered by Polish officials to return to the United States; the successful effort of the Poles to ban Spencer from other parts of Europe arises from the Schengen Agreement.

The Hungarian newspaper was a leftist one, but Orban has no excuse, nor has the Polish government.  And remember what happened to Taylor. Has anyone noticed that, interestingly, divisive American ethnonationalists so far have had no problems traveling to Europe?

The Unz Review reader comment about Taylor and CNN:

Mr. Taylor is a gentleman and prone to the altruistic sentiments that plague Whites. Consider that Miss McGuirk started out by by making the implausible claim that although she is executive producer, she has no influence on the even the title of her own production.

It is entirely possible that she is another Lucy imploring Mr. Taylor to go ahead and kick the football because she won’t pull it away. Her role was to sweet talk him into walking into the abattoir.

I could be wrong, but consider this rather telling bit of evidence: if she was genuinely what she presented herself to, be a fair, impartial seeker of truth and discourse why would she be working for a cesspool like CNN? And why would the denizens of such a pit retain someone like her?

Then we have this, also from The Unz Review comments:

White supremacism has been a tool of those who seek to subvert Christianity. Any greatness of Europe and the West is due to Christianity and to think otherwise is an abominable blasphemy. Had Christianity taken root in the heart of Africa or India rather than Europe and the West we would have had a flourishing of Africa and India for the past 1500 years and Europe and the West would still be barbarian.

Now, initially I thought this was just sarcasm or amusing trolling.  However, considering how deranged devout Christians are, it may be for real.  Who knows?  

The Rudolf Hess Restitution Commandos

And other news.  Emphasis added.

Laugh at this oldie but goodie from Der Movement:

Feb. 13, 1981
Nazis Set Deadline to Get $7 Million for Hess’ Release
BONN (JTA) — A group of neo-Nazis calling themselves the Rudolf Hess restitution Commandos have set a Feb. 14 deadline to kill two Jews at random unless they receive $7 million for a fund to free Rudolf Hess from the Spandau Prison in West Berlin. Hess, 86, who was Hitler’s right-hand man at the Deputy Fuehrer, is now the only prisoner in Spandau.
The neo-Nazi group made its demand in letters dated Jan. 30 and mailed to Salzburg, Austria, to the governments of the four Allied powers which administer the prison — the United States, Britain, France and the Soviet Union — a West German government spokesman said.
The neo-Nazi organization said the $7 million it is demanding would be “a gesture of goodwill” and should be paid to the “Freedom for Rudolf Committee,” an organization formed by Hess’ son, Wolf-Ruediger Hess, 43, a Munich architect. No comments were available from the younger Hess.

I don’t know – maybe it would have made more sense just to directly demand Hess be freed in exchange for not killing Jews instead of asking for “$7 million for a fund to free Rudolf Hess from the Spandau Prison in West Berlin.”  Or was that an early “movement” ploy for “D’Nations?” Who knows the minds of these early day Quota Queens? When I first heard about this back in 1981 my immediate reaction at that time was the same as it is now, but I suppose that a swarthoid simpleton like myself cannot understand the grand 4-D chess moves of my big-brained superiors. Alas, needless to say, they didn’t get the money, Hess was murdered (“suicide”) in prison, and none of these “Commandos” actually went ahead to “kill two Jews at random.”

1981, 2019: It’s all one.  Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Where’s the wall?  Billions of dollars to coddle and care for mongrel invaders, nothing for real enforcement.  And of course Trump will sign it – did you ever doubt it?

Never forget that the Amren crowd were telling you that Trump was “the last chance for White America;” thus:

For President Trump, black criminals are more important than public safety. He’s soft on crime and has broken another promise. Worse, with George Soros-backed progressive district attorneys winning elections, we’re likely to see a lot more “broken windows” in the future—and a lot more crime.

This blog, on the other hand, correctly labelled Trump as a fraud and a Negrophillic race cuck before the election.  But, hey, keep on supporting Amren and ignoring EGI Notes because, well, you know…

Come now, Hood, surely your man Trump has the courage to stop this disaster? He’s the last chance for White America, isn’t he?

Let’s translate all of this rambling into words readers of this blog can understand: A “movement leader” was wrong; Sallis was right.  Wasn’t that easy?

Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark

Another failure for mainstreaming.

Sallis: Mainstreaming doesn’t work, one reason for that is that the Center-Right can co-opt your lukewarm positions and scoop up your votes as the “safe” alternative.

But the situation is even worse than I had written – Denmark shows that even the Left can co-opt weakly moderate “anti-immigration” positions – and of course later betray those positions, leaving the stupid hoodwinked voters high and dry and leaving the Far Right out of power (as usual). If you cannot even distinguish yourself from Social Democrats, then isn’t that the most searing indictment of mainstreaming possible?

The riposte will be that in Europe, with their “hate speech” laws, more aggressive campaigning is not possible.  Even there, Sallis is right once again:

Some will object – what about Europe?  They have repressive speech codes and aren’t the national governments there considered legitimate by the people?  First, I can’t speak for rightist Europeans – it is very possible that the growth of populism there is indicative of a growing element that does indeed consider the System illegitimate. And, second, the USA, with its particular history of, and alleged commitment to, free speech, is expected to exhibit a much stronger association between free expression and political legitimacy than do nations that have histories of kings, dictators, strongmen, and laws against lese majeste. What about the argument that European nationalists have had success despite the speech codes there?  What success?  In some nations, there has been a temporary slowdown in the degeneration, which can be quickly reversed by any subsequent leftist government; at best, there have been victories by civic nationalists and moderate petty nationalists. The “grand success” in Europe is a figment of the Nutzi imagination. And I can turn the argument around – imagine how much more successful the European Right could be if they could actually express their real views without fear of being fined or jailed?

So, no, the pathetically flimsy “successes” in Europe – which in any case have limited relevance to the American situation – in no way disprove the thesis put forth here.  Given the concerns of White nationalists, the situation in Europe remains dire. Demographic replacement is still “baked into the cake” there. Can European nationalists freely and frankly discuss these concerns?

Der Movement argues how wonderfully the ethnonationalist heroes, with their carefully worded mainstreaming, are doing in Europe.  Sallis argues that this vaunted success is an illusion and that mainstreaming is a disaster, and that without the ability to speak freely – that for the most part European nationalists do not even have as a part of their political platforms – nothing significant can be accomplished.

Sallis – correct; Der Movement – wrong.

But that’s OK, keep on supporting the Quota Queens, those empty vessels who have all the depth of a piece of tissue cut by a microtome and all the heft of a rotifer.  Affirmative action and all that. Meanwhile, enjoy the fruits of mainstreaming in Denmark.

And then we have America:  Trump will be monitoring the situation.  Stay tuned!

I’m fair-minded, and will praise Der Movement when it is warranted.  Thus, in the midst of the horrendous pile of written garbage that now passes for Counter-Currents is a thoughtful essay that I believe has real value – see here.  This attitude, to be actualized into reality, will require community activism, focusing on real social and economic problems instead of nonsense about “Kali Yuga,” and will require an adoption of populist “lefist” economic positions instead of “conservative-libertarian” posturing about “sweet business deals” (the latter coming, perhaps not coincidentally, from the pro-Jewish HBD side of the “movement” aisle).

Cool Fishes and Genetic Manipulations

In der news.

Listen to this. 

First, the deplatforming.  Obviously, despite my disagreements with Counter-Currents and  other “movement” factions, I oppose their deplatforming. I don’t begrudge these types to earn a living from their activism either.  My point is, and remains, that these types should EARN their money, they should EARN their positions of leadership, and they should be held ACCOUNTABLE by their donors and the rank-and-file in general.  It is also obvious from reading my blog that I do not believe they are earning the money they get, nor do I believe that they are being held accountable.  On the other hand, if you have to give money to the tin cuppers, better to give to Counter-Currents than to give to VDARE so that Brimelow and Derbyshire can sit comfortably on lawn chairs in the leafy suburbs.

Greg is correct with his weeds analogy, the natural selection process leading to tougher far-rightists.  Of course, Counter-Currents is not the only groupuscule that has been surviving over the years. One wonders though if the System is also undergoing selection – my Red Queen analogy – and with their greater resources they may be victorious.

Lauren does good work.  Extraordinarily good work.  Laughter at my end.

Milo – who enabled him?  Who ever took him seriously? Wasn’t Milo part of the “big tent” WN 2.0 that some people promoted?  Greg, if the Alt Lite is controlled opposition and all no good, then why were you shilling for a “big tent” including the Alt Lite several years ago? You were for an alliance with the types of people you now denounce; I was against it. Who was right? Do we really need to answer that?

Greg is a “cool fish”- which is why he hysterically censors his blog and bans people when they disagree with him.  Frodi says you have to talk to people you disagree with.  Very well. Frodi, meet Greg Johnson, the cool cool fish.

The discussion about apostates was reasonable and similar to things I wrote in the past. See this about Derek Black. Note that I connect the Black case the “movement’s” affirmative action policy, the latter a topic one is not going to ever see honestly discussed at Counter-Currents.

Frodi is correct that people who are authentic WNs never really go back.  They may drop out of disgust, but they do not become apostates.  

People who live in Appalachia are “losers,” Greg?  Not everyone can live a blue state lifestyle off of “D’Nations.”  Who knows?  Maybe some of the people sending you the money you live on are types you would label as “losers.” Or does giving you money suddenly make them into “winners?’’  

I agree with Greg that those who use the term “White supremacists” to describe White nationalists should be held accountable for it.

New system for genetic manipulation.

Conventional CRISPR-Cas systems maintain genomic integrity by leveraging guide RNAs for the nuclease-dependent degradation of mobile genetic elements, including plasmids and viruses. Here we describe a remarkable inversion of this paradigm, in which bacterial Tn7-like transposons have co-opted nuclease-deficient CRISPR-Cas systems to catalyze RNA-guided integration of mobile genetic elements into the genome. Programmable transposition of Vibrio cholerae Tn6677 in E. coli requires CRISPR- and transposon-associated molecular machineries, including a novel co-complex between Cascade and the transposition protein TniQ. Donor DNA integration occurs in one of two possible orientations at a fixed distance downstream of target DNA sequences, and can accommodate variable length genetic payloads. Deep sequencing experiments reveal highly specific, genome-wide DNA integration across dozens of unique target sites. This work provides the first example of a fully programmable, RNA-guided integrase and lays the foundation for genomic manipulations that obviate the requirements for double-strand breaks and homology-directed repair.

Traditionalists can go off and hide in their snug hobbit holes, but if Whites do not partake of modern technology, others will, and use that ability to solidify their dominion over the Earth.  The Type Is can just go off into the woods, muttering over runes and eating twigs and branches, and leave the rest of us to make our way in the reality of the modern world.

But don’t worry.  Any discoveries made in America will find their way to China before they’re even published.

WN 3.0 Marches On

In all cases, emphasis added.

Remember Greg Johnson’s statement:

Greg Johnson

Posted March 6, 2018 at 8:46 pm | Permalink

Sadly, Occidental Dissent has now embraced “hard right” black-pilling and self-marginalization.

White Nationalism 3.0 will be hammered out by Counter-Currents and advocates of American Nationalism like James Allsup, Identity Europa, Anglin and Weev, and Mike Enoch

How is that WN 3.0 doing these days?  Good judgment (once again) there Greg:

A federal judge has awarded $4.1 million to a Muslim-American radio host who accused a neo-Nazi website operator of falsely accusing him of terrorism. 

U.S. District Court Judge Edmund Sargus Jr. had previously agreed to enter a default judgment against The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin and his company.

Unlike the tin cuppers, I have no financial incentive of donations to tell (i.e., lie to) all of you about how great it’s all going for Der Movement, and how victory is at hand.  Instead, I tell you hard truths – the “movement” is going from defeat to defeat, abject failure to abject failure, embarrassment to embarrassment, and utter humiliation to utter humiliation.

And let’s not forget this little tidbit:

A motion Obeidallah’s attorneys filed in February noted that one of Andrew Anglin’s accounts received more than $198,000 in donations between February 2016 and October 2018. A third-party tracker also estimated that Anglin received more than $378,000 in Bitcoin, the motion said.

If this is true, then Anglin is giving Petey a run for his shekels.  Imagine if that money went elsewhere. Imagine if those donations went to Salter, allowing him to concentrate on research and writing to extend and expand his work on EGI and ethnic conflict.  Imagine that money was invested in a dividend fund, yielding several thousands of dollars of income per year, which could be used for various projects, while the principle is maintained. Imagine the money was spent to help buy a property that could be used for meetings, conferences, and organizing. Imagine it was spent building a legal apparatus or some other sort of needed infrastructure.  Yes, imagine, and all you’ll be doing is imagining, because while the “crazy and bitter” Sallis has those ideas for that money, the big-brained Inner Hajnal heroes running your “movement” obviously have quite different ideas on what to do with dem dere “D’Nations.”

How’s that affirmative action program working out for all of you?  Keep on giving, moneybags!

Very cognitive, very elite.  Remember, it has long been EGI Notes that has preached to you that the existential meaning of Asians is hatred of Whites.  And they openly admit it:

Greg Johnson:

It was nine years ago today that the Counter-Currents website went online. I can’t count the number of writers, YouTubers, podcasters, websites, and entire movements that have come and gone in our ideological sphere in the last nine years. The attrition is understandable. Deplatforming, demonetization, and demoralization take their toll.

Let’s rewrite for added accuracy:

It was nine years ago today that the Counter-Currents website went online. I can’t count the number of writers that have come and gone on our website in the last nine years. The attrition is understandable. Demoralization, disgust, betrayal, and banning of writers take their toll.

Just replace “Lite” with “Right” and you’re 100% correct.

Another shallow Counter-Currents post by one of the horrifically bad new crop of “writers” there. Yeah…if that thesis  is correct, then White women would be flocking to support, and have sex with, “fascists.”  Is this the case?
