Ethnocentrism, Chinese Nationalist Maiden, Sex Strike

In der news.

Read this.

Prof. Dutton tries to explain the relatively low ethnocentrism of whites. One theory is that we have an evolutionary strategy based on producing geniuses. Exceptional people make breakthroughs that advance the interests of the group, but the type of environment that produces and supports such people is one of low conformity. This would decrease ethnocentrism. 

As he does in his earlier book, At Our Wits’ End, Prof. Dutton also argues that social changes connected with the Industrial Revolution have meant far less natural selection in industrialized populations since then. For most of history, children with maladaptive traits usually died, but now they often survive. This means harmful mutations stay in the gene pool. 

Prof. Dutton argues that ethnocentrism benefits groups in the struggle for survival, so natural selection has generally promoted it, whereas maladaptive attitudes such as very low ethnocentrism are the product of mutations. Mental and physical abnormalities due to genetic mutations are often found together, so that as the population is increasingly burdened with mutations affecting physical health, it may also be afflicted with reduced ethnocentrism, which reduces a population’s chances for long-term survival.

Is there an inverse relationship between degrees of ethnocentrism and the levels of such deleterious mutations?  This could be assayed. I avoid making comments about intra-European possibilities here, but the failures of Der Movement’s affirmative action “leadership” raises possibilities.

By the way, will Amren review Dutton’s book on Rushton?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Me so horny, me ruv you rong rong time:

Chinese Nationalist Maiden • 20 hours ago

I have witnessed for a long time that Whites are less ethnocentric than other races…

Is that why Whites let the likes of you live in their nations and infest their “pro-White” websites?

…and that is why I consistently try to increase White ethnocentrism.

By living in their nations.

I am not scared of White ethnocentrism. 

Really?  Even when your yellow rear end is kicked back to Hepatitis Land?

I agree with Kevin Macdonald’s view that Whites are unusually altruistic, which explains their weirdly low ethnocentrism. 

Exemplified by your presence at Amren.

However, I really hope Whites wake up soon because it is not good for the future of humanity if this planet becomes flooded with low-IQ peoples as low-fertility, high-IQ races, namely Whites and East Asians, decline. 

IQ, IQ, Asians have high, high IQ!  Asians are really declining, eh?  There are hundreds of millions more Chinese alone (a single Asian ethnic group) than there are all Whites combined, worldwide. Asians are in such “decline” that their excess population floods into White nations.

Currently, the East Asian demographic decline is inevitable due to low fertility. 

And if China loses half-a-billion people they’ll be down to where the entire White race is right now.

Together with Whites, we will be a dwindling minority in centuries to come…

Lie.

…and therefore we need a strategy for high-IQ peoples.

Whites enslaved to Asian interests.

However, idiots like Xi Jinping make sound racial thinking nigh to impossible in China…

Which is why the Chinese are fiercely nationalistic and are practicing eugenics.

…whilst the West is not being helped either by the liberals and (((rulers))) who wish for White genocide.

If the subtle sexual bait is not enough, there’s a (((little pretense))) of anti-Jewishness to whet Nutzi appetites.  Just like that Japatrix from Majority Rights.  It’s as if they are reading off the same script…which is probably the case.

Retarded wopess just confirmed to the world that all women are basically whores who use sex to control men.

MGTOW, my friends, MGTOW.

Those deceptive yeastbuckets.

More MGTOW.

The Year in Review: 2018

The year that was.

A brief outline of 2018, with an emphasis on Der Movement and the Sallis Groupuscule.

1. Sallis contra Lewontin. I finally got around to formally (preliminary) demonstrate that “Lewontin’s Fallacy” applies to any form of human population grouping, including random grouping, mixed-race grouping, etc.  That is, any human population, however chosen, will demonstrate “more variation within than between” – and this has nothing to do specifically with race, and retarded leftist “arguments” that assert that “within/between” somehow invalidates race, or worse, demonstrates that “Whites and Blacks are more genetically similar to each other than to members of their own racial group”, are absurd, and objectively and quantitatively absolutely wrong.

This was, in my opinion, by far my most important contribution in 2018 and, predictably, it was completely ignored by Der Movement.  Indeed, even among readers of this blog, based on page views, I notice that criticisms of Der Movement get much more attention than any of my genetics-based posts, or book reviews (here or at Western Destiny), or any other such analysis.

Whether that is because activists are “hungry” for alternative and critical viewpoints of the “movement,” or simply because people prefer to read about “movement gossip” and infighting, I do not know.

However, the fact that groups ostensibly interested in these genetics-based matters – racialists, HBDers, etc. – studiously ignored this (and other similar material produced here) should tell you something.  It’s “Who” and not “What.”  Material of utility for White racial interests, material of interest to “race realists”- all of that is ignored if it is produced by the “wrong” people.  Values get thrown out the window when personal and narrow ideological interests are at stake.  Remember that when all those types protest about how much they prioritize ethical activism and White racial interests and “the pursuit of the truth.”

2. Reviews. Speaking of things that have been ignored, Bolton’s important biography of Yockey was available, so I got a e-copy, read it, and reviewed it found here. I also did a review of the “Whither Judaism and the West?” book chapter, found here.

3. Alt Blight.  2018 is the year that the Alt Right definitely and obviously collapsed, the bubble burst, the Alt Right fever broke, much to my relief – and just as I predicted as far back as 2016 (when all the heroic “movement leaders” were jumping on the Alt Right bandwagon).  This has to be by far the single biggest “movement”-related story of 2018, at least on the American scene.  And both proponents and opponents (Left and Right) of the Alt Right admit and acknowledge the collapse.  Indeed, post mortems have been written from both sides of the political spectrum. It’s that obvious.

The problem is that the niche space of “movement” stupidity must be filled, like air rushing into a vacuum, and we are now seeing a resurgence of the Alt Wrong (see the Counter-Currents ethics issue below).

4.  They’re not proud, boys.  Concomitant with the collapse of the Alt Right, the Alt Lite has also degenerated, exemplified by the “Proud Boys” being chased out of LA bars by noodle-armed soyboys, and then essentially disowned by their creator.  Are these the types you want to get under the “big tent” with?

5. Deplatformimg, persecution, and the rule of Antifa.  One reason for the decline of the “Alts” and the “movement” as a whole, has been the inability to deal with a concerted effort by the System to target Far Right activists at various points of vulnerability.  Rightists have been deplatformed from social media and various online financial entities, they’ve been targeted by lawfare and social pricing, and the Far Left Trump administration has let Antifa essentially conquer the American Street, so we have scraggly wanna-be leftists acting as the running dog enforcers of the globalist-big business-anti-White alliance. Antifa is now the de facto police force of the government and of globalist big business interests.

6. The Turd Emperor.  This blog correctly and presciently identified Trump as a fraud and a vulgar ignorant buffoon back in 2015. Three years later, and after two years of a failed Presidency, most (but not all) of the Trump cheerleaders have realized that they’ve been “had, “and the intra-“movement” consensus is that Trump is a pathetic failure.  However, the Quota Queens by and large take no personal responsibility for this fiasco of misplaced trust and enthusiasm; there will of course be NO accountability for the latest Man on White Horse Syndrome episode.  Expect it to happen again.

7.  Going counter to the ethical current. The ethical collapse of Counter-Currents is another story of 2018. That site has been in decline for several years, and the gaslighting of trying to blame the failures of WN 2.0 on WN 1.0 was one low point this year.  But, as bad as that was, it was merely an appetizer to the two shoes dropping

First, we observed Counter-Currents embracing Derbyshire, doubling down on the good old boys network, despite the fact that Johnson in the past strongly denounced Derbyshire as an anti-WN, race-mixing opportunist, and also denounced WNs who embraced Derbyshire.  Second, Johnson wrote that “Trevor Lynch” is going to be featured at the Jew Unz site.  That’s astonishing, and not in a good way.  It seems that with the death of the Alt Right, Counter-Currents is pivoting to the Alt Wrong.  

More evidence of the Counter-Currents shift is this excerpt of a recent Johnson comment:

The mature thing for the American movement is to invest in individuals and organizations that are changing minds and bringing people over to our side, as opposed to failures who only bring shame upon us. Here’s my short list:

1. Counter-Currents and me

2. American Renaissance and Jared Taylor

3. VDare and the Brimelows

4. The Occidental Observer and Kevin MacDonald

5. Identity Europa and Patrick Casey

6. Red Ice

Of the five non-CC entities listed, three (60%) are HBD/Alt Wrong, with two (40%) – Amren and VDARE – being the fundamental pillars of the Alt Wrong.  Johnson and Counter-Currents have thrown in their lot in with the Alt Wrong, and one can reasonably predict that  in the long term Counter-Currents as a vehicle for White racial nationalism is finished.  Also note that Johnson’s list is enriched in people and entities who “threw Spencer under the bus” after Hailgate.  Also note that there is solidarity there for both the affirmative action program as well as for tin cup panhandling.  This is the “movement” “amen corner” reinforcing each other’s biases and errors.

By the way, here is my comprehensive list of “individuals and organizations” that are of any use:

1. Ted Sallis and the Sallis Groupuscule (EGI Notes and Western Destiny)

List complete.

I have had my disagreements with the WN 1.0 folks, but at least those people are of a more sound character when it comes to not selling out.  I can’t imagine the likes of Duke, Strom, Roper, Linder (or Pierce when he was alive) writing for Unz, groveling to a race-mixer like Derbyshire, or anything else of that nature.  Leave that to all the WN 2.0 and 3.0 heroes. Despite ideological disagreements, as well as disagreements on strategy and “optics,” I’m much closer in basic character to WN 1.0 than I am to any of the later permutations.  All these guys keep on trying to reinvent the wheel, and they haven’t yet figured out that this won’t work.

Here’s Roissy on Unz:

Ron Unz lies a lot in an article about the Alt-Right which he penned last year but reposted yesterday. I think the strawman-per-word ratio in his id-shaped rant is higher than anything I’ve read outside of a feminist tumblrrhea screed.

His main contention is that the “alt-right” are being deplatformed and de-personed because representatives (whoever they are) exaggerate the criminal threat of latino immigration, and the Soylicunt Valley nerdos who have been thrust into the role of Speech Police can’t tolerate the lies.

This is an utter inversion of the reality, which is that the Big Tech Poindexters can’t tolerate the truths which dissident outposts daily level against the corrupt Globohomo worldview and nation-dissolving agenda.

The “alt-right” (really, a constellation of realtalkers who refuse to parrot neolibogisms) is silenced because they write truths that the masturbators of the universe don’t want to read.

Simple as that.

Censorship has historically been used as a tool by the powerful to suppress the views of the powerless who threaten the former’s hold on power. That Unz can’t or won’t grasp this ineluctable fact of no-holds-barred status jockeying between antagonistic groups says a lot about what kind of resentful agenda motivates him.

How about all Unz contributors being upfront as to whether they are being paid by Unz and if so how much?  And can any of us believe we’d see the day when Roissy makes more sense than Johnson?

8. Randy Phil. Rushton was exposed as a hypocrite, a race traitor, and a fraud – and by a fellow HBDer no less.  Rushton fathered a child with a Negress.  What’s next?  Pierce having had a secret love child with a Jewess?

And of course all the Rushton fanboys either ignored the revelations or started with ad hominem attacks against the messenger Dutton, as if those personal attacks could in any way alter the pathetic and disturbing facts of the case.  That’s HBD for you.  But let’s give Dutton credit for some honesty here.   Twilight of the Idols indeed.

9. Out of Africa. The Spencer and Johnson 23andMe results – emphasizing the absurdity of that test’s minor admixture estimates.

10. Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong. Typically wrong – Jack Nicholson as a prospective “alpha shitlord” – while any 30 second Google search can demonstrate that he’s a life-long liberal Democrat.  A “jacked” Bezos making a “hard turn right” politically – except he didn’t. Good going there, Roissy, on both counts.  “Shakin’ Stevens” and his Odinist perspectives – that is, when he’s not being a Red.  Good going, Rowsell.  Not to mention the “movement’s” humiliation about Trump, mentioned above.  In Trump We Trust – until “we” don’t.

11. Can’t keep it in the pants.  There was the Heimbach-Parrott and Spencer-Conte dramas. The lack of moral fiber and sexual self-control demonstrates a failure of leadership character.  To be fair, the Spencer-Conte issue is murky, and has not been definitively established.  The other incident is more definitive.

And, gee, Heimbach’s latest comeback attempt was short-lived.  Try, try again.  It must be great to have a “free pass” from Der Movement for having the appropriate ethnic ancestry.  After all, even Baby Daddy Rushton is still worshipped in some circles. 

Delenda Est Der Movement

The White race will be free only AFTER Der Movement, Inc. is destroyed.

Der Marching Movement

Some points.

Read this.

What is Populism? is a truly terrible, even contemptible performance. Müller is Professor of Politics at Princeton University, so he’s not totally stupid. What’s stupid is the Left-liberal democratic ideology and system that he defends. One gets the impression that he has lived so long in the echo chamber of academia and the middle-brow press that he has never really articulated and challenged his own political convictions. You’d think that would come with the territory as Professor of Politics at Princeton. But they don’t make Princeton professors like they used to. I think Müller stumbles so badly because, for perhaps the first time in his life, he has blundered out of the cave into the sunlight.

But take heart: an establishment this out of touch is truly doomed.

That was a reasonably good analysis by Johnson.  As he is a full time activist – living off donations – he certainly has the time to read, and review, all these books.  One problem is that he’s preaching to the choir here. How to get these analyses out to a broader population?  After all, I thought Counter-Currents was all for the “big tent” and wants to normalize WN?

Johnson should challenge Muller to a debate on the subject of populism. There’s not much of a chance that Muller would accept, but what do you have to lose (assuming Johnson believes he could win such a debate)?  In the off chance Muller accepts, that would be a major promotion of Johnson’s views; if Muller objects, or ignores the invite, he can be publicly accused of intellectual cowardice.

This is a relevant point to my concerns about funding – I don’t begrudge anyone living off donations as long as they earn it. The question is whether anyone is earning it, according to my standards. Giving a forum to scum like Derbyshire is not a step in the right direction in that regard.  Breaking through the System’s cordon sanitaire to promote positive memes would be step in the right direction. Activists should only contribute donations to those people doing positive things. But, alas, the walking wallets disagree with my assessment and will continue to fund retrograde destructiveness.  Such is life.

As regards this: “But take heart: an establishment this out of touch is truly doomed.”

Does that apply to Der Movement, Inc. as well? We can only hope.  And the fate of the Alt Right give us good reason to hope.  The good old boy network is not invincible, even with the narrow confines of racial activism itself (and it is that context I am talking about, as the network is absolutely inept – far from invincible – in tackling the System).

Whites as a defeated and despairing race.

Why not?  They thought they were electing a pro-White right-wing populist as President, and instead they got a radically left-wing Antifa supporter.

Interesting how Sailer talks about Whites as a race.  Hey, Breezy Steve, I thought that White nationalism is “impossible” because we can’t figure out who is, or is not, “White?’  But you seem to do so in every other column.  Of course you include Jews as “White”- what was your ancestry again?  And does Unz pay you?

An excellent gamester comment below.  Note how Asians are included in the non-White hordes.  Colored is as colored does.  They are all the same.

For reasons that are a mystery to me, I like to put myself into the shoes – or more accurately, into ‘da haid’ — of a nonWhite in America or any White country. What I feel on these jaunts into their skulls is their simple and unbridled joy, their unshaken belief in a bright future that rests on this one, single foundation: wypipo will continue to play by the rules.
Those rules being, that we (I’m back to me now, a White) will continue to be the inanimate backdrop of social capital that lays a nice habitat for blacks, browns and yellows though our competence, niceness, our imbecilic good cheer. One-man-one-vote and the browning of America mean that we’ll resign ourselves to the shifting electoral reality just like individual trees continue to stand around and cast shade and look pretty no matter how many trees around them are cut down.
Whether we’re talking about a 70-IQ black or the 110-IQ Asian, they lack the flexibility of imagination that would let them envision a dynamic system within which, when pressure is turned up on Whites, Whites stop playing by the rules of present-day’s strange, unstable moment of transition between the old complacent America of plenty and the new America whose myths of plurality are becoming Boomer-relics.

While Roissy writes about “pasta naggers,” I write about BOTH the Italian question and about “cuck naggers.” This blog attempts to be honest about, and critical about, all ethnies, while the quota queens are ever-so-selective.

This is interesting.  Fascinating that they didn’t prioritize a particular Borreby individual, but, what can you say?

I was listening to a Radio Europa podcast which was going well until the commentators started critiquing the idea of a European Imperium, using all sorts of retarded straw man arguments.  It doesn’t matter how often one points out that even an extreme integrationist like Yockey supported local sovereignty.  No sir!  Those horrific “Greek Orthodox” people are going to torment you mercilessly by their very existence, so no Imperium for you!  Of course, having nice “Commonwealth” West Indians and South Asians around is all fine and dandy, eh?.  In other words – Rotherham good, Brittas Bay bad.

Ahhh…cuck naggers.  Shakin’ mah haid…amirite?  [Gamesters weep]

OK, to be fair, they don’t want the Blacksters and Brownsters around either. But their hysterical reaction to the Imperium idea, without discussing the nuances, is despicable, and deserves to be mocked.

Der Movement Marches On

More wreckage.

Whatever you want to say about Taleb, he’s at least forcing the Alt Wrong HBD fetishists to defend their premises – for the first time, in, well, forever.

Apparently, those 23ndMe results have real world consequences.

A bit behind the times:

December 2018.

August 2017.

Never fear – given enough time, Der Movement belatedly realizes, promotes, or understands many of the points raised here months or years earlier.

Does the taint of Arktos prevent book reviews?

What about Bolton’s Yockey bio? Did you read it by chance?

Greg Johnson

Posted December 26, 2018 at 5:37 am | Permalink
I have not been able to read it.

A Type II review is here.

Meanwhile, Johnson is now a writer for the Jewish-HBD Unz site.  Zman would be proud. Is this a paid position?  After all, moneybags Ron usually pays his writers.  Does Greg believe that Unz should be “driven out of White society” as he has stated for Jews in general?  Pay close attention, goys, pay close attention.

The young Pirandello.

The young Mussolini.

More examples for the “movement” cherry pickers:

Giovanni Gentile.

In phenotypic contrast, Lega Nord politician Maroni, born in Varese, Lombardy.  Undoubtedly, a Celt-Germanic Nordic.  As Roissy commentators assert – “geography matters in Italy, like a lot.”

For Greg Conte – an Italian politician of Calabrian ancestry.  Another purebred mountain wop, no doubt. Arya…arya….

Go away, Parrott.

This is the future you choose for your children when you mumble on with your excuses and reservations.
Yes, it’s worth some people getting doxxed, fired, and arrested over. It’s a real struggle, not an internet hobby.

Rewritten:

This is the future you choose for your children when you tolerate outrageously incompetent quota queens, freakshows, and online grifters.
Yes, it’s worth some “movement leaders” being mocked and ridiculed. It’s a real struggle, not a panhandling scheme for people who want to live off of follower’s donations.

Der movement marches on.  The voices of WN 3.0?  Say it aint’ so!  Let’s see now.  Trolling, “shitposting,” and generalized juvenile jackassery: all WN 2.0 activities.  Another fail.  Is Greg going to try and blame this fiasco on WN 1.0 as well?

And this is another example why Parrott and all the other quota queens are so wrong in their “suggestions” and “advice.”  Rallies, trolling, beer bellies with their muskets, and all the rest mean nothing, absolutely nothing, when there is no infrastructure, no one embedded in the System, not a single lawyer on call ready to defend, absolutely nothing, nada, zip, zero – nothing except drunken podcasting, Pepe and Kek, trailer park cuckolding, “Proud Boys” chased out of LA boys and then abandoned by their founder, and “leaders” constantly with their hands out demanding “D’Nations.”  There’s nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  And if anyone asserts that we need something, then the good old boys emerge out of the woodwork and – aping their retarded God Emperor – lash out with tweets.  Pathetic.

We’re stuck in an eternal negative feedback loop.  The freakshows of Der Movement repel high quality people.  The lack of high quality people leads to a “movement” dominated by freaks, incompetents, and jackasses. This in turn further repels high quality people.

Only when the rank-and-file activists rebel against their “leaders” will this ever change.

Delenda Est Traditionalism

Excerpts from a Morganian diatribe.  Emphasis added.

Of the major (and even several of the minor) European languages, the Traditionalist school of philosophy – that articulated by René Guénon and Julius Evola…

One of the most fascinating things about Type I nitwits is the juxtaposition of their fervent man-crush on Evola – which equals if not exceeds that which Roissy has for Trump – and their visceral disdain for Evola’s ethny.  The cognitive dissonance must be extreme.

…and their offshoots – was a latecomer in the Anglophone world. After the better part of a century of near-total obscurity, it was only thanks to the hard work of publishers such as Sophia Perennis, Inner Traditions, and World Wisdom (not to mention Counter-Currents!) that most of the writings of the Traditionalist school finally appeared in English and became known – in certain circles, at least – in recent decades.

To our detriment.

While this has been a major step forward…

Off a cliff.

…there is still a dearth of original, secondary works pertaining to the Traditionalist perspective in English. And most of what has been produced in English has focused exclusively on esotericism (particularly of the Islamic variety). What has been conspicuously absent have been works dealing with history, social issues, and politics from a Traditionalist point of view.

Compared to Rightist works dealing with those issues from a Futurist point of view, the mass of Traditionalist scribblings are akin to the grains of sands on a beach.

It’s not difficult to understand why, however, given that for a long time, Traditionalists have been operating under the guise of being purely concerned with religion and mysticism, remaining silent about the fact that Traditionalism in its complete form is one of the most – if not the most – reactionary current of thought that exists in the postmodern world. 

So, we want to promote and identify with a “reactionary current of thought?’’  You think you are going to inspire revolutionary activism and a reordering of society to your liking based upon backwards-gazing reactionary “traditionalism?”

This is of course a consequence of the fact that most Traditionalist thinkers today have opted for the safety of academic careers (something which Evola noted already in the 1950s and for which he expressed his contempt)…

A contempt not quite as intense as that of Der Movement for Evola’s ancestry.

…and thus want to avoid being called fascists. Their cover has been somewhat blown, however, as a result of Steve Bannon’s claim that Guénon was a crucial influence on him…

The anti-racist, anti-WN, civic nationalist Bannon.

…which has in turn led to some superficial and ill-informed propaganda from journalists using Traditionalism as a branding iron with which to mark both Bannon and Trump (by association) as fascists, by bringing attention to the connection between Evola and Guénon. (And Evola had the audacity to call himself a “superfascist,” so by the logic of the average half-witted journalist of today…

As opposed to the average quarter-witted “movement activist” of today.

…that makes Bannon and Trump really fascist!) It remains to be seen what the long-term consequences of this will be in terms of Traditionalism’s reception in the mainstream, although I’ve noticed that it’s become harder to find Evola and Guénon’s books on bookstore shelves these days. It may have the beneficial effect of forcing Traditionalists out of the realm of pure scholasticism and into putting their beliefs into practice, if academia ultimately becomes a hostile environment for them – which it inevitably will, if present trends continue. Time will tell.

Put your beliefs into practice!  Snug in your hobbit hole!

Dr. Wolfheze is not content to merely sit on the sidelines while his civilization is destroyed, justifying it by whining about “muh Kali Yuga.” 

Like Greg Johnson?

The book’s Preface is titled “Childhood’s End,” and in it Dr. Wolfheze briefly discusses the Arthur C. Clarke science fiction novel of the same name as being symptomatic of the post-war (in this case meaning the Second World War) mentality: namely, that the rapid and dramatic progression of science and technology are leading us towards an apocalypse that we cannot yet identify, but which still fills us with a sense of dread. 

Science and technology – BAD, BAD, BAD!  Being snug in your hobbit hole – with de facto anarchy in the provinces of course – GOOD, GOOD, GOOD!  Let’s leave dat dere scientific mumbo jumbo to the Chinese, we’ll get out in dem dere woods and munch on some twigs and branches. That’ll work out well – about as well as Evola “pondering his fate” during a Soviet artillery barrage and ending up in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.  Traditionalism!

Spoilers ahead; if you haven’t yet read the book but think that you might, skip to the next paragraph.) In that book, a near-future humanity is visited by an extraterrestrial civilization which helps to solve all of humanity’s problems, bringing about Utopia. The problem, as humanity soon learns, is that it turns out that it was the struggle to deal with those problems that gave their lives meaning, and having everything handed to them eventually leads to stagnation. It turns out that all of human history was merely a process leading us towards humanity’s real end, for which the aliens have come to act as midwives: evolving into a species of plain, anonymous children, all identical and part of a collective with no more distinguishing features than ants, but endowed with what we would consider to be superpowers. Ultimately, these children combine their forces and transform themselves into a non-corporeal being, destroying the Earth in the process and incidentally all of those unevolved humans such as ourselves – those who haven’t already committed suicide, that is.

This is a science fiction book – and one that promotes race-mixing by the way – not a reflection of reality.  But I suppose that to those who believe that The Lord of the Rings constitutes a viable blueprint for a future society, the membrane separating fact from fiction is thin indeed.

As an allegory of the modern world, the parallels to the Right-wing and Traditionalist view of the modern world is clear, even if Traditionalists would deny that “progress” is leading us towards anything higher, collectively or otherwise. 

OK – you’ll have your hobbit hole and the Chinese will have their nuclear-tipped ICBMs and we’ll see which vision is triumphant.

We, too, are fighting against the transformation of the world into a giant supermarket, where everyone is identical and meaning is to be found solely through the acquisition of material possessions.

Lack of self-awareness alert: How about raging against a “movement” in which everyone is ideologically “identical” and “meaning” is found solely through the mindless chanting of retarded dogma?

In the second decade of the 21st Century it is clear, even to the most simple-minded…

Thus, even to Type I “activists.”

But one thing about this new audience is certain: it will not include the old audience. The old audience will cling to its complementary comforts of infotainment consumption and academic snobbery…

Counter-Currents complaining about “academic snobbery?”  The pot calling the kettle black, indeed.

For Dr. Wolfheze, the end of the Traditional world should not be seen as a cause for mourning, but rather the mark of a need for a new maturity, a desire to be a “man among the ruins,” to use Evola’s phrase…

Or, to be, like Evola himself, a swarthoid subhuman among the supermen?

And indeed, this book, while extremely interesting, is certainly not for everyone – but then Traditionalism has always been an elitist doctrine. 

No “academic snobbery” there!

Engagement with history has always been a weak point in Traditionalism; the Traditionalist authors will make occasional reference to certain historical events as being indicative of the metaphysical trends they see at work in the world, but to my knowledge there has never before been a sustained analysis of modern history from a sacred, Traditional perspective, which has always seemed to me to be a major flaw in their work since it neglects to show how the forces which have produced the modern world have been at work in material and tangible ways. 

Congratulations to Morgan for writing a champion run-on sentence.

I intend to write a more in-depth review of The Sunset of Tradition at a later time – my primary purpose in writing this brief announcement…

More than 2000 words is a “brief announcement.”  More run-on sentences to come, have no fear!

Speaking of “traditionalism,” we see Der Movement is obsessed with The Lord of the Rings once again. Someone needs do an ethnological study of that work’s relationship to Der Movement.  Is the obsessive appeal biological – to Celto-Germanic NW European-derived people – or more ideological – to Type I traditionalists independent of ethnic origin?  That would be a productive analysis to better understand the traditionalist memetic virus infecting the “movement” – to better understand it and how to combat it.

Delenda Est Traditionalism!

Blackpill Friday

In all cases, emphasis added.

MAGA keeps on marching on:

President Trump still has the power to stop this. He’s surrounded by enemies that he has appointed, enemies that even brag about their sabotage of his Administration in The New York Times. He needs to ignore his advisors and fight for the platform he was elected on. Rather than getting in pointless fights on Twitter, he needs to discipline his own party [Trump stirs up needless controversy over Hurricane Maria death toll, by Philip Wegmann, Washington Times, September 13, 2018]. If he doesn’t, he has no one else to blame for what is coming.

Does anyone believe he’ll do anything useful?  After all, there all those Big Macs, tweets, jackass comments, and “negs” – and that’s more than enough to make the fanboys swoon in onanistic ecstasy.

The Rise of the Alt-Right gets off to a promising start. In chapter one, “The Emergence of the Alt-Right,” Main defines his terms and introduces his cast of characters. In addition to reading, Main did interviews with Peter Brimelow, John Derbyshire, Mike Enoch, Brad Griffin, Kevin MacDonald, Richard Spencer, Jared Taylor, and me.

Dear God, what a crew.  MacDonald has done good work in the past, as did Taylor in the 1990s and early 2000s, but the rest of them?  That’s an embarrassment.

In his discussion of intellectual progenitors of the Alt-Right, he focuses primarily upon Sam Francis, Paul Gottfried, Kevin MacDonald, and Michael Levin.

See below.

Main regards the Alt-Right as “far more radical and dangerous than the right-wing extremism of past decades” because of its “underlying ideology” (p. 4). 

Which is what?  The same dogmas from the “right wing extremism of the past decades” but with a veneer of “youth culture” and Millennial jackassery?

He thinks that White Nationalists today are “intellectually and rhetorically sophisticated”—but only “relative to neo-Nazis or Ku Klux Klan supporters” (p. 7). By his own standards, he judges Alt-Right thought to be “abysmal”…

Well, he’s right about that.

Main distills four distinctive features of Alt-Right thought: (1) “A rejection of liberal democracy,” which he identifies with the principle that “All men are created equal.” (2) “White racialism,” which he insists on identifying with white supremacism. (3) “Anti-Americanism,” because we believe that our race should command a higher loyalty than our nation. (4) “Vitriolic rhetoric.” “The movement rejects the standards ethics of controversy and indulges in race-baiting, coarse ethnic humor, prejudicial stereotyping, vituperative criticism, and the flaunting of extremist symbols” (p. 8). This last point, of course, is a very poor fit for Taylor, Brimelow, Derbyshire, and most of the other figures Main discusses. This is just one more reason to finally bury the Alt-Right “brand,” which is dead and getting stinky. 

Err…who was it who promoted the Alt Right and said that “the Alt Right is White nationalism or it is nothing at all?” On the other hand, who criticized the Alt Right from the beginning, asserted the dangers of Alt Right “movement” hegemony, and predicted its downfall?  Readers of this blog know the answers to those questions, eh?  Hint: one is Johnson and the other is Sallis. Just match the right individual to the appropriate memes and predictions that were written.

I simply refer to myself as a White Nationalist.

That sounds a bit too pan-European.  Let’s emphasize ethnonationalism and intra-European ethnic cleansing now instead, shall we?  And let’s be honest here, Greg.  Turn back the clock a couple of years and you were proud to identify as “Alt Right” – at exactly the same time that EGI Notes was routinely attacking the “Alt Right brand” that you now classify as “dead” and “stinky.”

In his second chapter, “How Big is the Alt-Right?” Main compares the web traffic of mainstream and Alt-Right webzines. He understands metapolitics, so he recognizes that the quality of an audience matters more than its quantity…

The Far Right is in trouble then.

In chapter three, “From Right-Wing Extremism to the Postpaleos,” Main deals with Samuel Francis, Paul Gottfried, Kevin MacDonald, and Michael Levin as the intellectual founders of the Alt Right. 

Gottfried and Levin are Jews. Francis was OK, but did write some stupid things in his time. MacDonald’s work on the Jews and on group evolutionary strategies are classic and had a great influence on my own worldview.  I’m less positive about the direction of TOO over the last 5 years or so. In any case, I do not think those four are “the intellectual founders of the Alt Right.”  Beavis and Butthead would be more appropriate.

Main’s emphasis on Francis and Gottfried makes sense given that Richard Spencer emerged from the paleoconservative context. It also makes sense if Main views the Alt-Right through neoconservative lenses, since paleoconservativism was a reaction to neoconservatism. But if Main wanted to understand the thinkers who most influenced the movement’s criticisms of liberal democracy, he should have asked.  I’d love to know what Brimelow, Derbyshire, Taylor, etc. would say.

Pick some Jewish and Chinese authors, I suppose.

Most of the younger people on the Alt-Right, however, are not “postpaleos” but “postlibertarians,” and I suspect that with this population Hans-Hermann Hoppe had many times the influence of Sam Francis.

That’s one reason why the Alt Right is a disaster.  Libertarianism is, almost literally, a retarded political theory, and it is, literally, incompatible with racial interests in the real world of a clash of civilizations.  I simply cannot trust anyone who was once a libertarian.  There’s some basic flaw there.

Main paints a laughable picture of academia as a place in which the disinterested pursuit of truth trumps all political concerns. 

In my experience, the exact opposite is true: political concerns trump all disinterested pursuit of truth.

Elsewhere in the book, he appeals to the “consensus” of impartial scientific researchers who deny that race is a meaningful biological category (p. 178)…

Main is lying.  Race is a meaningful biological construct and can be assayed via genetic testing, with near 100% accuracy for, at least, the major continental population groups.

…and that racial differences in intelligence are primarily due to nature, not nurture (p. 179)…

Another lie.

…and who affirm that mankind is causing global warming (p. 178).

The jury is still out on that.

That’s true, Rich.  But, then, isn’t the Alt Wrong (you know, the ones who threw you under the bus over “Heilgate” and who wistfully email Jewish correspondents on the possibility of you getting shot) A-OK on this?  And wasn’t it written that “dating Asian girls is a ‘rite of passage’ for the Alt Right?”

Hey, Sessions worshippers – don’t you think this is worthy of indictment?  Not just the possibility of a cursory “investigation” – which I’m skeptical would even happen anyway? Speaking of Sessions, where is the Justice Department, regarding this?  How about the Secret Service?  Do you need any more evidence that Antifa is an integral part of the Establishment?  It might as well be a branch of government as this point.

This is the sort of in-depth Breezy Steve post that all you suckers who support VDARE are paying for.  And, Ron, don’t you think you should be getting “more bang for the buck” as well?  At least insist on  some long, rambling commentaries on real estate, golf courses, and PISA scores (all PISA, all the time!).

The Wisdom of Calanctus

Jack Vance surpasses Roissy once again.  In all cases, emphasis added.

Readers of this blog are no doubt aware of my great appreciation for the work of Jack Vance.  One of Vance’s strengths is his reading of the female character, as previously described here.

Perhaps “character” is too strong a word; behold the female: But remember – do not “objectify” milady.

Seriously though, let us consider the story The Murthe in the Vance book Rhialto the Marvellous described thus:

“The Murthe”

The Sorceress Llorio, also known as the Murthe, has journeyed through time to the 21st Aeon, and is transforming the wizards of that era into women. Rhialto and his colleague Ildefonse the Preceptor attempt to foil her plans with the aid of the mysterious time-traveller Lehuster.

Also see this description:

In the end, the warring Wizards are reduced to spectators to a much greater struggle between two archetypal forces of Elemental Male and Female.

One of these wizards, by the way, named Tchamast, is a Sallis-like character described thus:

…morose of mood, an avowed ascetic, whose distrust of the female race runs so deep that he will allow only male insects into the precincts of his manse.

MGTOW indeed!

Well, a feminist sorceress (Llorio the Murthe) from a previous Golden Age of magic has appeared onto the time of the last days of Earth, a “Kali Yuga” (Der Movement starts breathing heavily…Tradition!  Tradition!) of sorts, inhabited by magicians who are at best a pale shadow of those of the past.  In her own time, Llorio’s attempts to conquer in the name of the “female race” and subjugate men failed due to her defeat by the macho man sorcerer Calanctus, with whom she has a love-hate relationship (she hates him for thwarting her, but she is attracted to his “jerkboy” machismo), a man who combines “game” and “MGTOW” and saves humanity from the “last man” victory of the “female force.”  Calanctus reappears in the current time in the cryptic form of “Lehuster” to attempt to rally the remaining male magicians to oppose the Murthe; but, that failing, he reveals himself, subdues her, and thus prevents the advent of female domination (cue Silker pouting and disappointment, albeit Llorio is not an Asiatrix).

The story contains a bit of wisdom from Calanctus, from writings he left behind after his first victory over the female race:

Ildefonse, looking through The Doctrines of Calanctus, said: “I find here an interesting passage.  Calanctus likens a woman to the Ciaeic Ocean which absorbs the long and full thrust of the Antipodal Current as it sweeps around Cape Spang, but only while the weather holds fair. If the wind shifts but a trifle, this apparently placid ocean hurls an abrupt flood ten or even twenty feet high back around the cape, engulfing all before it.  When stasis is restored and the pressure relieved, the Ciaeic is as before, placidly accepting the current.  Do you concur with this interpretation of the female geist?”

As Roissy would say: heh.

Let us consider this quote from Llorio, after being defeated by Calanctus a second time (Calanctus, by the way, essentially sexually propositions her after her defeat…she adamantly refuses, but in the end leaves with him, leaving the reader to suspect that he has defeated her in more ways than one):

“Hope?” cried Llorio. “When the world is done and I have been thwarted? What remains? Nothing. Neither hope nor honour nor anguish nor pain! All is gone! Ashes blow across the desert. All has been lost, or forgotten; the best and dearest are gone. Who are these creatures who stand here so foolishly? Ildefonse? Rhialto? Vapid ghosts, moving with round mouths! Hope! Nothing remains. All is gone, all is done; even death is in the past.”

One can imagine that speech also describing the state of Whites today; just replace the names “Ildefonse” and “Rhialto” with those of others, including members of the “movement’s” failed affirmative action leadership.

As Vance would write: “It’s all one.”

Addendum: Yet even more Vancian “game” follows – demonstrating that old Jack Vance novels can tell you all you need to know about sexual behavior, without delving into the juvenile sewer of the “gamesters.”  Thus:

The lady Shaunica laughed. “I ride like a feather on wafts of caprice. Perhaps I am piqued by your restraint, or distance, or indifference, or whatever it may be. Every other gallant has dropped upon me like a vulture on a corpse.”  She turned him a sidelong glance. “Your conduct therefore becomes provocative, and now you have the truth.”

Rhialto was silent a moment, then said: “There are many exchanges to be made between us – if our acquaintance is to persist.”

The lady Shaunica made a flippant gesture. “I have no strong objections.”
