We Need Real Data

This is important.

This is a topic that I’ve brought up in comments at Counter-Currents, particularly in response to some Le Brun podcasts, but is worth discussing again (and again and again).

We need data, strong empirically-determined data, to assist in understanding racial-social trends in society as a whole, as well as within the “movement.” Many assumptions are made, and strategic approaches are designed based on those assumptions, without any real founding on real evidence. This is crucial in determining the answers to crucial questions about how to get Whites in general motivated to pursue their own racial group interests, and how to get Whites actively involved in racial activism.

We need opinion polling and other types of survey data, looking at the White population (in different countries if possible, but at least in the USA), broken down, if possible, by age, sex, education, income/class, and other variables. We need to ascertain how many Whites are concerned about the racial-cultural trends, and if so why, and if not why. We need to understand why those who are concerned do nothing about it, why they eschew racial activism, and what they think of the “movement.” Looking at the “movement” we need to identify the types of Whites who get involved, what their motivations are, how they got involved, and whether the “gateway hypothesis” (that people enter through more mild, Alt-Wrong style activism and the progress to the more hardcore) is correct or not. We need to understand whether ”mainstreaming” really works (I think not), whether “vanguardists” are more attractive or not to recruits, and whether the Alt Right’s “youth culture” is really a net positive to the “movement” and whether it is really responsible for bringing in young recruits. And there are, I’m sure, dozens of other essential questions that need be answered – and answered by real data.

Why don’t the more well-funded and “connected” precincts of the Right (e.g., the Alt Wrong) at least get the ball rolling on this? Or, if not them, can the more hardcore among us pool resources and get the job done?

Real data providing real answers leading to real solutions to pressing problems.

Ben Raymond and Greg Johnson

Interesting podcast.

I finally was able to listen to the Ben Raymond-Greg Johnson podcast. Raymond made a very favorable impression on me and I wish him and National Action well.

I agree with 99% of what I heard.  Only two areas of disagreement.

First, the idea was put forth that we on the far-Right should not criticize our fellows on the Right; if we disagree with their approach, we should merely do better and let our success speak for itself – a “Darwinian” method of outcompeting, rather than directly critiquing, one’s opponents in the “movement.”

At one time I agreed with that.  Unfortunately, it does not seem to work. There is no accountability in the “movement,” decades of failure are excused or misdiagnosed as some sort of bizarre “success,” activists engage in personality cult followings of failed “movement” leaders, and the affirmative action policy in the “movement” protects many of these failures from being held to account for the damage they’ve done, while at the same time preventing others from actualizing their own, potentially superior, ideas as part of any so-called “Darwinian competition.”  The “game” is fixed and until that changes I see it necessary to critique the “movement” and related precincts of the Right.

Second, Raymond’s comments about the advantages American activists allegedly have in terms of “free speech” ignores the specter of social pricing in America, far more potent than in Europe.  This was discussed previously by Le Brun and Johnson and Raymond needs to understand that in certain ways America is more repressive than Europe.  For godssakes, even a billionaire political candidate, the leading candidate of the GOP, cannot hold a rally in a major American city.  Free speech?

By the way, one point of agreement is the criticism of mainstreaming in the podcast.  Cue the “pink panther” music and exit, stage left, one French mainstreamer….

Again Refuting Ethnonationalist Mendacity

Against narrow ethnic nationalism.


“But Vox did seem to be saying that most White Americans would more likely than not identify with a single national-ethnic identity rather than the broader racial identity White”

That’s the sort of nonsense that I’ve spent years refuting over and over again, apparently to no avail.
There are solid reasons for differences in the “success” (*) of ethnoracial nationalism between the USA and Europe, other than the majestic “superiority” of narrow ethnonationalism. These include but are not limited to:
1. The greater professionalism and competence of leadership and membership cadres in Europe.

2. Within Europe itself, continental Europe has always had more developed nationalist parties and movements than the UK, for reasons which are likely deeply rooted in cultural and historical phenomena. The overseas anglosphere, including the USA, have seemed to inherit the more muted propensity for nationalism of the UK.

3. As discussed by Le Brun in a podcast, social pricing is much weaker in Europe than in the USA. Yes, Europe has “hate speech laws” but I believe that social pricing is a far more potent force in stifling dissent. Even with factor #2, if you relieved social pricing in the USA, racial nationalism would flourish. But defeating social pricing would require real leadership (see #1).

4. In America, social pricing is strictly reserved for White racial activism, which is what the System fears.  You want to organize an Irish-American, German-American, Italian-American, etc, club at your school or place of business?  No problem!  Looked on benignly.  Organize a European-American club?  Oy vey, the racism!  Then Day’s SJW’s would really come out. Don’t you think people know this?  Don’t you think we need to break that barrier to have success?
*I put “success” in scare quotes because people are grossly overestimating the power of ethnonationalism in Europe where an outright invasion by young NEC and African males is being greeted with the enthusiasm of a sex starved female virgin getting screwed by a lustful alpha male.
