Open niche space.
Read this. I will refrain from my typical critiques of Durocher and Unz and instead concentrate on the issue at hand – the dominance of the Left in all aspects of modern cultural production, including scifi/fantasy, pop culture, etc.
Let’s focus on scifi/fantasy, which can be extended to include the superhero/comic book genre. As Durocher’s piece asserts – and which is backed up by observable fact – we are in the midst of “woke” scifi/fantasy, which has displaced and replaced the more interesting and White male-friendly scifi/fantasy of the past. There is widespread dissatisfaction with the “woke” version of scifi/fantasy and much nostalgic pining for the more robust versions of the past.
This would suggest an open niche space for new cultural creations of more “rightist” and White male-oriented scifi/fantasy – both written (books, graphic novels) and audiovisual (film-style works). The argument will be, of course, that “no publishing houses or studios would host such work” – an objection which, even if true, certainly doesn’t exhaust the possibilities in the year 2020 and beyond.
We are now in the age of self-published books as well as niche (including rightist) book publishers. There are independent comic book/graphic novel publishers establishing competition with Marvel and DC. Independent films of all sorts obviously exist as well.
I have previously written about the scifi “cult classic” independent film Primer. You can read the Wikipedia article on the film here. This highly regarded and award-winning production was made with a budget of only $7,000. It is a science/technics-based, (White) male-oriented film; indeed, the two main characters are “Nordish” White guys who look and dress like Mormons. There are two South Asians with bit parts, everyone else in the film is White. There are no SJW messages in the film – it is quality scifi compatible to a White male audience. Of course, there is no explicit rightist message here – we can say it is implicitly, not explicitly, White.
Here we see some Star Trek fan fiction – in this case, it is “diverse,” but, putting race/sex issues aside, we observe it is of high quality. Take a look at the short film Among the Ruins. Again putting aside demographics, focus on the high quality. My point being is that it is not impossible for motivated individuals with an artistic bent to produce quality material with limited resources. Therefore, addressing the currently unmet need for White male-oriented scifi/fantasy is not an impossible task.
Not all of this needs to be explicitly White, rightist, and racialist. It may be prudent to start with implicitly White productions like Primer, while gradually introducing racialist themes. However, I would have no objection if someone was ambitions and motivated enough to dive right into the openly pro-White racialist set of themes. Optimally, eventually, you would have a mixture of both types of cultural productions – the implicitly White politically neutral material and the more explicitly White openly rightist and racialist material.
Of course, given my objections to Der Movement, I fear that Type I Nutzis and other “movement” nitwits would create material so bad, so counter-productive, as to do actual harm. One would hope that rightist scifi/fantasy and other cultural productions would be sane and reasonable, helpful and productive, and not reflect crazed dogmas, sweaty fetishism, traditionalist idiocies, paranoid ideation, lies and distortions, and other Der Movement specialties. Type II input and participation would be essential.
Some would respond – well, why don’t YOU do it? I make no claims of being an artistic type. However, I would be willing to be a consultant for such projects (evaluating concepts, critiquing the science/technics of it, making criticisms and suggestions). Folks can post their projects online or contact can be established through certain “movement” “heroes” or whatever.
New stories can be created, or adaptions can be made of established stories, both of traditional scifi/fantasy as well as rightist works (Camp of the Saints? Take Back this Day?) – although casting non-Whites would be admittedly problematical (Nutizis in blackface?). If permission can be obtained from the relevant estates (if required), non-political fan faction based on the work of Wolfe and Vance and van Vogt would be useful. Very old works from other authors are likely in the public domain
In any case, this post is not about details, but about the general idea of targeting the open niche space and creating useful cultural content – targeting an area that may be “pop culture” of sorts but nevertheless important.
Do I believe Der Movement will make any progress on this front? No. And this raises an important point. If Der Movement is not good at the arts, not good at artistic cultural creation, then what is it good for? Certainly not STEM; indeed, hostility toward honest, objective STEM is fundamental to lying “movement” dogma. What? Business? They always complain that they have no money. Law? Laughable, since they constantly complain about a lack of competent legal help. Philosophy? What philosophical insights have been contributed by Der Movement? Economics? That boils down to “I want my UBI money.” History? More laughable lying dogma. In fact, Der Movement seems to be good for perfectly nothing.
