Amren commentator – Trump is the anti-Teddy:

Trump speaks loudly but carries a twig

Hey, Roissy, are you paying attention?

Question for the Alt Wrong: If, as you claimed, Trump was “the last chance for White America” and if, as you claim today, he is a do-nothing fraud and swindler, then what now?

The FBI under Trump: Proud Boys BAD, Antifa GOOD.  With Sessions gone, can we now talk about Antifa Don, as opposed to Antifa Jeff?

Zman:

The rules, as currently written, are designed to protect the Left. Antifa gets police protection at riots, because the cops know the dissidents would tear the spaghetti armed Antifa boys to shreds, if given the chance. Everywhere you look the system is rigged to protect the Left and make it difficult for dissidents to mount a challenge.

Well, yes, that’s obvious, and has long been that way.  Very well.  But now the “God Emperor” is in charge of the federal government, of law enforcement, and the System’s pro-Antifa bias is stronger than ever.  That is what one would expect with Antifa Don in charge, a far-left effeminate, obese, and vulgar anti-White radical.  Make Antifa Great Again!

And it’s another great moment in Der Movement history. But let us give Spencer some credit: At least, unlike some other people, he does not use his children as fund-raising props, a behavior that is in my opinion indescribably inappropriate.

Yeah, Richie, you were real prescient and all.  And this blog – EGI Notes – was saying that Trump was a fraud, a Negrophile, a Jew-lover, and a vulgar, ignorant, buffoon, long before the election.  I guess it is time to establish the Crazy and Bitter Ted Twitter Account – and start broadcasting my ultra-prescience to the masses, eh?

See this.  Apparently, things have changed since the time when Russian soldiers would strip Italian POWs naked in the snow and pour ice water over them.  Of course, the Afrowops invited such contempt because of their pitifully pathetic military performance in WWII.  To the extent that that performance was not inherent in the Afrowop biological character, Mussolini has much blame there.  Fascism was in power for nearly twenty years when Italy entered WWII, and after all that time the population (such as it was) was not in any way radicalized, the military was ill-trained and ill-equipped, and sending such specimens to the Eastern Front was akin to sending Pee Wee Herman to compete in a Mixed Martial Arts event.  Il Duce did complain that he was like a sculptor with no stone to work with – that the poor human material of Italy’s population left him with little do no anything grand with.  To the extent that is true, he should have realized that, and either not gotten involved in the war, or at least only participated with limited contingents of the highest quality Italian soldiers, equipped and trained as best as possible, rather than with a general mass enlistment force.  A more focused group of soldiers may have demonstrated a credible military performance.  And, if the population was as bad as he said, he should have concentrated on eugenics and racial hygiene rather than blustering and war, and should have “fascistized” the existing population so as to extract from them the best performance possible – instead of being an Italian Trump with all blustering talk and no real action.

High-T Quota King Coulter – mudshark Annie herself – mocks Trump.  Gee, what ever happened to In Trump We Trust?

In response to the latest System lies about race, I point to:

1. This post.  You know, every time the “more variation within than between” nonsense is trotted out, the sly implication is to suggest to people that “within” is always within races.  But my post shows that this applies to ANY grouping of people.  However, the between racial differences are above and beyond the random genetic variation that exists, proving the biological validity of race.  In other words, there is just as much (if not more) “within group” variation for mixed groups of Whites and Blacks as there is within separated groups of Whites or groups of Blacks, but the between group variation is maximized when comparing the separate groups of Whites and Blacks.

2. Genetic interests are based on genetic kinship, which itself is based upon relative genetic similarity or difference.  Genetic kinship and genealogy track to an imperfect degree (as both Sailer and I agree).  So what?  A random co-ethnic may share more genes with you than your fourth cousin.  Again, so what?  If anything, it proves how closely co-ethnics can be genetically related.  And there is no difference, objectively speaking, between identity by state and identity by descent. Identical is identical. If two gene sequences are the same then they are the same regardless of why they are the same.

3. And, yes, it is possible for a European descendant of Charlemagne to have zero genes directly derived from Charlemagne.  But guess what?  They will be more genetically similar to Charlemagne than is a Nigerian.  Guess what racial group Otzi the Iceman clusters with?  Hint: It is not Negroes or Orientals.  Genetic kinship is not the same as genealogy, and as a proponent of EGI, I’m concerned with genetic kinship.

So…A woman is told that (from the NY Times article that Breezy Steve links to):

Johnson’s father, a chauffeur who later became a superintendent at a housing project in North Philadelphia, had a golden-brown complexionHer mother, who said her own father was a white Brit and her mother was half African-American and half Native American, was light-skinned. People sometimes mistook Johnson’s mother for white, and when she applied for seamstress jobs at department stores in the 1920s and ’30s, she chose not to correct them.  

She tests out as between 43-45% sub-Saharan African, which seems to me to be fairly accurate (as Sailer agrees). What’s the problem? The sickness of the SJW System is such that when genetic testing confirms race and demonstrates reasonable accuracy, the hysterics moan about “problems” and “inaccuracies.”  Likewise, when genetic analysis refutes Kemp on Ancient Egypt, the equally sick and hysterical “movement” says that the same analysis “proves Kemp was right.”  Both the System and Der Movement are frauds when it comes to racial science and racial history.

Well, when Roissy declared Salvini “the Italian Trump,” I guess he was right:

A young Somali refugee, who has just been granted refugee status, has been arrested on suspicion of raping a 68-year-old woman as she sunbathed on a beach in Abruzzo, Italy.

And, hey, according to the great and good Sir Desmond Jones, Italy is 100% ethnically and racially homogeneous to the end of time, forever and ever, amen.  After all, Afrowops, Somalis, what’s the difference?  

Hey, be careful there Hunter, you might get banned from Counter-Currents.  Don’t you know you are not supposed to challenge Greg too vigorously?  He’s already previously more or less called you “crazy” (*) and then wrote that your site was “black-pilling” (bitter); you may be next on the blacklist:

Billy Roper purity spiraled his way out of it.

He didn’t trust Jason Kessler. He didn’t like a variety of people who were scheduled to speak there. He didn’t trust the plan. You can say he opposed it for the wrong reasons, but it is unfortunate that Jacob Goodwin went and will be paying the price for years. There were a lot of WN 1.0 guys besides Roper who thought it was naive to hold such a large rally.

That’s correct.  Roper was right.  Why can’t Johnson give Billy credit for that? Both Roper and Johnson were skeptical about Unite the Right.  As was I – neither WN 1.0 nor WN 2.0 – by the way.  So, three people, with three different “movement” ideologies, all thought the rally was stupid.  Who thought it was a good idea?  All the heroic Millennials of WN 2.0. Let them assume the responsibility for that. It’s called accountability. Try it some time.

* In the comments thread of the above-linked article, Johnson wrote (about Wallace):

Moreover, this individual had also been committed to a mental institution and diagnosed as bipolar and schizophrenic…and during this psychotic episode (the one that he will admit to), he blogged about going to work for the SPLC.

If memory serves, Johnson later had Wallace as a podcast guest.  

Finally, Greg Johnson and I are in complete agreement on something:

I am not a defeatist, but I do think that unconscious defeatism is a factor when movement people demand less competence and responsibility from so called leaders than they demand from their car mechanic. After all, a brake failure is serious. A failure of movement leadership . . . well, one would think that much more serious, since we are concerned with the preservation of our whole race. But the fact that people treat it far less seriously indicates that they really don’t think that the movement can accomplish its aims under any circumstances.

Greg seems “crazy and bitter” there – “blackpilling” – and should therefore ban himself form commenting at Counter-Currents.

Movement Monday

Odds and ends. In all cases, emphasis added.

Counter-Currents writer takes a Joyceian, rather than a Johnsonian, view of Mr. Screw Your Optics:

No White Nationalist should feel the slightest desire to apologize, backtrack, disavow, or rethink a single thing he believes because of this event. 

I do none of these things.  I need to rethink nothing: I believed Der Movement was a disgusting mess before and I believe so now.  I believed the Type I retards have ruined racial activism and I still believe so.  I believe “acting out” is a mistake – nothing has changed.  And why should I “apologize, backtrack, disavow?”  The incident was a Type I operation; it has nothing to do with Type IIs.

Continue as if nothing happened. 

That attitude worked with all the infiltration incidents, and all other “movement” failures, why not now?

Call out our enemies at every turn, mock them for their hypocrisy, ridicule their insanely childish ideals, and throw statistics and blunt truths at them as usual – do everything but blink. Don’t give them an inch of moral ground. They have absolutely no right to take it.

True enough.  However, the same can be said of the Type Is – who have long ago forfeited any moral high ground or legitimacy whatsoever.  I suggest that the Type Is burrow down into their snug hobbit holes and let adults run things for a change.

Zman:

That’s the real fight here. Rod Rosenstein can threaten obstruction of justice all he likes, but he has not power. Trump has real power. He can address the nation one night, reveal the secrets Rosenstein is trying to hide and then fire all of the people involved in this subversive plot and its cover up. Congress, even one run by Democrats, is not going to impeach Trump for exposing corruption. They will make the ritual noises and rush to their media outlets to complain about how Trump is a tyrant, but nothing will come of it.
That’s probably why Trump has been sitting on this stuff until after the election. He has no fear of twerps like Rosenstein. He just needs to get through the election and then figure out the new game board. If the GOP keeps the House, then maybe he lets Congress work this case. If it is the Democrats, then maybe he calls their bluff and releases these documents to the public during the lame duck session. The one thing he will not be doing is worrying about what silly men like Rod Rosenstein have to say about it.

Here’s another possibility, regardless of the election’s outcome: Trump, as usual, does nothing.  Oh, not exactly nothing – he’ll continue with his blustering tweets, his late-night cheeseburgers, and will continue to trade insults with horse-faced porn stars, but with respect to actual governance, actual hardball politics, it will be, typically for him, nothing.  All talk, no action. MAGA!

Presented for your amusement.

This fellow – a German Borreby who claims to be “the head of the German Alt Right” (I’ve never heard of him) – seems like he has a good heart, but he’s naive about the whole thing.  He sees a difference between Johnson and Spencer, while, in reality, there is no real difference.  That’s why I don’t take sides in that feud – it’s mostly personality, not principled differences in fundamentals (superficial differences yes, fundamental, no).

HBDer Welton:

The likely moral for people in the West and especially in “secular” Western Europe: fundamentalist religiosity seems to be pretty important in defeating the forces of SJW chaos. It “gets things done”.

HBD and Sallis are as different in viewpoints as two entities both ostensibly on the “racially aware Right” can be.  I disagree with the HBDers on virtually everything.  It’s quite remarkable, actually.

Roissy:

Trump does have to do something, fast. He has to regulate these social media companies, internet hosting companies, and payment processor companies as common carriers. Do it!

Yeah, Trump is going to do something fast – what he does best.

Amusing:

1488D chess strikes again! Just tell the Cville and RAM guys, even those Proud Boy cucks, they have to sit it out in jail a little while longer until Trump reveals himself as the Great White Hope after the midterms, and walks back all the ZOG kissing and anti-WN rhetoric he has made. And don’t take those threats he made yesterday in the aftermath of the Pittsburgh shooting personally. He really isn’t coming after you just some strawman to placate the kikes and libs.

Crudely put, but essentially correct. The Trump worshippers will be waiting for their “God Emperor” to “do something” long after he’s dead (probably from a heart attack after eating a Big Mac) and buried.  Why, he’ll rise from the dead like Jesus and smite the heathens with some clever “negs.”

Kamikaze: a European invention.  Asians: copy, copy, copy, steal, steal, steal.

Puerile Brimelow is with his cheesecake pictures again.  This fellow used to be useful and mature.  I’m not sure what happened, but I suspect it may have to do with the tragedy of his first wife’s death – an event for which I had genuine sympathy for Brimelow and his first set of children) and his subsequent second marriage to a much younger woman.  Since then he’s been behaving like an absolute jackass.

Has Brazil elected a real right-wing populist, unlike the fraud Trump?

Roissy:

He says, without a hint of irony or glibness, that subversives within State will take Trump down if he doesn’t immediately clean house and fire at least three-quarters of the staff. He says, again sans glibness, that whatever negative blowback this will have on foreign relations is more than compensated for by removing an actively hostile threat to his Presidency, and he wonders why Trump has to date dropped the ball on this pressing matter. He presumes members of Trump’s inner circle are deliberately hiding State Department subterfuge from him, and if that’s the case, then the fix is in.

“…he wonders why Trump has to date dropped the ball on this pressing matter.”

Trump has other pressing matters to attend to…like pressing all those cheeseburgers down his throat.

“He presumes members of Trump’s inner circle are deliberately hiding State Department subterfuge from him…”

Yeah…it’s being discussed on juvenile gamester blogs, but the President is too clueless to know what’s going on in his own State Department.  MAGA!

In Der News

Odds and ends in der news.

Some old news, but still relevant.

The USA continues to follow the insane directives, promoted especially by the Obama administration, to continue to decrease yields of US nuclear weapons.  Last I read, they wanted to get rid of all the low megaton range B83s – which themselves can’t destroy deep targets – and replace them with low yield “dial-a-yield” weapons.  I have nothing against the “dial-a-yield” concept, as long as megaton range yields are included in the spectrum, which was NOT the case for the leftist Obama-pansy military planning.  Meanwhile, Russia continues to have high-yield weapons, and with improving accuracy.  They’ll be able to take out fortified targets, while US bombs would be hard-pressed to mimic Hiroshima.  Another example of Western weakness and degeneracy – but let’s put ‘Western” in scare quotes.

“Even nuclear weapons have limited effectiveness at destroying the deepest or widely separated underground bunkers,” reads a 2005 report from the Union of Concerned Scientists. “For example, an earth penetrating weapon using the 1.2 megaton B83 warhead—the highest yield weapon in the U.S. nuclear stockpile—could crush underground bunkers to a depth of about 1000 feet. Deeper bunkers can be constructed with modern tunneling equipment, and are essentially invulnerable to nuclear attack.”

Pan-Europeanists = early Rome.
Ethnonationalists – Greek city states. Didn’t Stoddard compare WWI with the Peloponnesian War?
Excerpt of comment from AltRight.com:

I prefer Spencer’s speeches to Jared Taylor citing stats about how Jews and Asians are smarter than Huwhites.

SLC News.

“World Brotherhood of Europeans” – excluding Afrowops and Romanohorians of course.

Did you ever notice that:

***When Americans fight wars that benefit Jews (e.g., WWII, any of the Middle Eastern wars that benefit Israel), then veterans are good and noble, and popular culture fetishizes veteran worship; however, when Americans fight wars that Jews disapprove of (e.g., Vietnam or even the entire “Cold War” military endeavor), then veterans are despicable “baby killers” to be scorned, while anti-war protesters and draft dodgers are lionized.  Funny, that.  It’s almost as if the entire American culture is modulated to reflect Jewish concerns and Jewish views. 

***In a typical modern American classroom, half the students have attention deficit disorder and the other half have a peanut allergy.  And most are overweight.

More SLC News:

The Alt Right’s “generational warfare” is ludicrous from my perspective for many reasons, foremost among them is that virtually every White Millennial I have known (many in fact) is not only an extreme leftist, but they all are hysterically ultra-SJW extreme leftists, oozing with the most virulent anti-White attitudes imaginable.  Boomers may be cucked cowards, but many (most?) Millennials are open enemies.

Read this.

The roots of what we now call the Alt-Right lay in the Ron Paul movement.

And that is why the Alt Right is doomed to fail.  It was tainted by libertardism from the very beginning.

Read this, emphasis added (from the original book):

….the degree of genetic differentiation among Indian jati groups living side by side in the same village is typically two to three times higher than the genetic differentiation between northern and southern Europeans.

Let’s unpack that for a moment.  Typically, population genetics tells us that the greatest genetic differentiation in Europe is along the north/south axis, being a bit larger than east/west; the first axis in PCA is north/south, the second is east/west.  However, that differentiation, the north/south, in Europe is two to three times smaller than that between Indian brownster “micro-castes” who live “side by side in the same village.”

Playing Out The String: Rome

The last century (or so) of the Western Roman Empire.

I will consider two relevant books, building on previous discussion at this blog on the subject of the Fall of Rome.

The first book: Theodosius: The Empire at Bay, by Williams and Friell

This book begins with the battle of Adrianople and its outcome (disastrous for Rome, good for the Goths and, hence, for Der Movement), focuses its major sections on Theodosius and his reign and its implications, and then finishes with a brief epilogue of the post-Theodosius Roman world and the question as to the inevitability of the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.

The historical background for the reign of Theodosius, and its influence on European history, which are covered in this book, are a matter of record, can be read (in summarized form) online, and we need not repeat all of that here.

Instead, we can address certain issues of interest to this blog.

This book makes some good points, which usually escape the obsessives and fetishists.  The Fall of Rome, the Western Empire at any fate, can be effectively explained without resort to sweaty rambling about “racial degeneration through admixture.”  

What about the Decline of Rome, as opposed to its Fall, if we agree that a “decline” took place?   

That Rome changed is without a doubt, but what do you expect?  The Theodosius book makes (what should be) the obvious point that the gigantic land empire of Rome could be maintained over time, and against the constant barrage of threats, only by co-opting and assimilating the subject peoples.  This process invariably would erode the specifically Roman – as in the original Romans – nature of the state. By state I mean the empire as a whole, as well as the nature of its rulers, as emperors eventually came from non-Roman and then non-Italian origins. This does not imply a mass panmixia of the population.  In other words, the Roman state, its citizenship, and its leadership, eventually came to include all the various ethnies found within it, so that any specific and exclusive character to the state was lost.  That is not the same as postulating “racial degeneration through admixture” – cultural and political degeneration may be more accurate, if one holds the narrow character of the early Roman Republic as the ideal.. But again, these changes are the price of establishing an empire – an integrated land empire especially – through conquest.

Other obvious points made is that as peoples become more civilized, their willingness and effectiveness as warriors diminishes to some extent (genetic pacification, along with cultural and social changes), and so the need exists to expand the pool of prospective soldiers; for Rome, from Italy to Gaul and Spain to the Danubian provinces and then, ultimately to Germanic and Asiatic barbarians (the latter of which contributed to the Fall).

So, yes, we observe the inevitable changes in the nature of the Roman state, the elevation of Emperors of non-Roman (in the strictest sense) and non-Italian heritage, and the creation of a multiethnic civil service and military force.

None of this should come as a surprise – was it possible for Rome itself, alone or in conjunction with local Italian allies, to administer and defend this vast territory against constant threats (Germans, Persians, Huns, Alans, etc.) for century after century?

The choice was between a Roman Rome or a multiethnic Empire.  A strictly ethnically Roman empire was an impossibility. Note that the European colonial empires of the last few centuries were for the most part overseas empires, local elites were co-opted even then, and these empires lasted not very long before collapsing and resulting in a backflow of colonized peoples into Europe itself.  One could argue that the overseas colonial model ended up being a worse disaster than Rome’s.


Another point made is that conquest of the empire, which brought with it all the goodies initially extracted from the conquered lands, was economically, politically, and organizationally easier than maintenance of its vast holdings over the centuries.

It is true that there was a lot of political corruption in the Later Western Roman Empire, but that had nothing to do with racial degeneration, as the Theodosius book clearly demonstrates. The chapter “The Topheavy Empire” discusses in detail the causes, types of, and consequences of, the excessive levels of political corruption that grew over time in the Roman Empire, particularly in the West.

So, yes, lots of political corruption. But then there was always corruption in Rome, including in the Republic period, also including Pierce’s favorite, Sulla.

Indeed, corruption throughout the Classical period was a problem, and it is also important to distinguish political corruption from moral.  Political corruption is always a problem for bureaucracies, and the larger the bureaucracy grows – as one would expect from a large, established empire over time – the more political corruption grows.  Moral corruption has some overlap with political corruption, but the two are not the same.  One could have political corruption without a large amount of moral corruption spread throughout society; on the other hand, political corruption is usually found whenever moral corruption is widespread.  So, it does not follow that political corruption in the Late Western Roman Empire necessarily means that that moral corruption was growing; one can argue that the Christian Late Western Roman Empire was significantly less morally corrupt than the Rome of Sulla, Caesar, Tiberius, Caligula, or Nero. Likewise, the America of Tammany Hall, the Grant administration, and the Harding administration, had enormous amounts of political corruption, but was far less morally corrupt than the America of today.

So, it is understandable that growing powers and established empires will have political corruption and such corruption is bad and it is destructive, but it is not the same as moral corruption, and there is no clear connection of corruption to “racial degeneration” as Der Movement typically asserts.

The racial degeneration theory raises the question as to why the more racially degenerate Eastern Roman Empire lasted a thousand years longer than the West.  Perhaps because the Fall of the West was due in large part to military reasons and not racial degeneracy, and that the East had the wealth to “buy off threats.” This the West could not effectively do. Of course, Der Movement will assert that unlike the degenerate later empire, the noble, Aryan, Dolph Lundgren-like original Romans would never stoop to buy off their enemies. Yeah, sure.

Indeed, the Roman accommodation of the Goths under Theodosius, and their treatment as equals and settlement in Roman lands as an integrated unassimilated group – that would later prove disastrous – was done because of serious Roman manpower shortages and the realization of other threats over the horizon – Huns and Alans.  Manpower shortages, coupled perhaps to Frost’s “genetic pacification” of the shrunken population, and, most importantly, the constant hammering from “barbarian” threats – Goth, Huns, Alans, etc. – were too much for the Empire to bear, especially when coupled to strategic idiocy and infighting from the leadership of the state.

Under those circumstances, one wonders how the Western Empire lasted as long as it did, not that it collapsed.

On another point, if the Romans had been in a better positon in the West, and had the Goths (and Vandals and other Germanics) been more reasonable and far-sighted, the initial steps of Roman and Germanic cooperation (e.g., Frankish generals and Gothic soldiers serving in the Western Roman military, as well as the cooperation at Chalons), could have led to the evolution to a more modern Europe without the interregnum of the Dark Ages.

As an amusing aside, as part of moral posturing on the part of the authors of this book about ‘racism and xenophobia,” they note the anti-barbarian sentiments of Synesius of Cerene who proposed that “Let all fair-haired men be banished from positions of power.”  Cue fainting fits from Der Movement. (Jordanes’ Getica is more in Der Movement style).

The authors suggest that Synesius’ opinions were unrealistic, before telling us all about the disintegration of the Western Roman empire under the onslaught of the selfsame barbarians critiqued by Synesius, including “allies” of one emperor or another (or of their behind the scenes handlers).  Does the name “Alaric” ring a bell?  So, the authors need to do a better job of refuting Synesius than SJW hysteria about “racism and xenophobia.”

This book is the mirror image of the Theodosius biography; it gives a brief summary of what went on before the main subject of this volume, including a brief history of the reign of Theodosius himself, and then concentrates on the last decades of the Western Roman Empire, including an analysis of what went wrong.

The Vandal conquest of Rome’s African province was devastating for the Western Empire, cutting off a significant source of revenue, leading to bankruptcy and the inability to maintain an effective independent military force.  Grain shipments were disrupted, as was trade in the Mediterranean.  The Roman aristocracy selfishly refused to contribute to the empire’s defense, with either men or money, and the provinces began losing loyalty to Rome (itself obsessed with palace intrigue and civil wars), with an increased emphasis on local loyalties and dissension due to religious conflicts.  Superimposed on this was the constant barbarian threat, and the split of the empire between West and East, with the wealthier areas in the East – an East that increasingly thought of itself as a self-contained entity superior to the West. Therefore, the Western Empire spun increasingly out of control.  “Racial degeneration through admixture” need not play a part in any of this.

The author points out that Romans, and then Italians in general, soured on the idea of military service quite early, and were content to let border provincials carry the brunt of the duty, leading to a situation that made the peoples of Italy increasingly unfit as effective soldiers (20th century Italian military disasters can be considered in this light, perhaps – a too-long period of genetic pacification?).  This is more a function of genetic pacification, overcivilized softening with prosperity, and altered social mores, as it is any “racial degeneration through admixture.” The last “Conclusion” chapter of this book sums up the many inter-related problems faced by the Late Western Roman Empire and the (postulated by the author) “inevitability” of its collapse.  

In any case, empires built through conquest (of one form or another) are inherently unstable, and this has nothing to do with “racial admixture.”  The very maintenance of such an empire over time drains its vitality and resources, and degenerates the population (in ways not dependent upon “admixture” but of course admixture may in theory also occur). For example, would anyone seriously expect the Assyrian Empire to still exist today even if we assume the Assyrians maintained strict racial purity?

As regards the various leaders of the late Western Roman Empire, I am sure at least some of them had an at least an implicit understanding that they were just “playing out the string” – doing the best they could under circumstances in which a bad ending was more or less inevitable, doing their duty as long as they could, delaying that inevitable bad ending for as long as possible, going through the motions of empire even when a point was reached that the “Western Roman Empire” was reduced to mainland Italy and Sicily and really not much else. 

There were opportunities to (temporarily, if we assume collapse was “inevitable”) reverse the degeneration before things reached that point; it was unlikely to have saved the empire on a permanent basis, but it could have lasted longer with better decisions, better luck, and less infighting.  By the way, my judgment is that the division of the Roman Empire into Western and Eastern halves was the beginning of the end for the West; even though that grand strategy may have been useful as an expedient when initially devised, ultimately it led to a situation in which the richer and more secure Eastern Roman Empire viewed itself as an independent (and superior) entity, bent on its own preservation at the cost of the Fall of the West.  An integrated empire would have been able to draw on its total strength for defense, and could have lasted longer to ensure a more gradual change to the sort of federated European union that could have been possible between the remnants of the Empire and the more “Romanized” of the “barbarians” – eventually integrating the West as a whole, and letting the more alien parts of the East go its own way.

Let’s consider Nietzsche as the coda here, contrasting his views to Der Movement dogma, emphasis added.

That which stood there aere perennis, the imperium Romanum, the most magnificent form of organization under difficult conditions that has ever been achieved, and compared to which everything before it and after it appears as patchwork, bungling, dilletantism those holy anarchists made it a matter of “piety” to destroy “the world,” which is to say, the imperium Romanum, so that in the end not a stone stood upon another and even Germans and other such louts were able to become its masters.  The Christian and the anarchist: both are decadents; both are incapable of any act that is not disintegrating, poisonous, degenerating, blood sucking ; both have an instinct of mortal hatred of everything that stands up, and is great, and has durability, and promises life a future.  Christianity was the vampire of the imperium Romanum, overnight it destroyed the vast achievement of the Romans: the conquest of the soil for a great culture that could await its time.  Can it be that this fact is not yet understood?  The imperium Romanum that we know, and that the history of the Roman provinces teaches us to know better and better, this most admirable of all works of art in the grand manner was merely the beginning, and the structure to follow was not to prove its worth for thousands of years.  To this day, nothing on a like scale sub specie aeterni has been brought into being, or even dreamed of!  This organization was strong enough to withstand bad emperors: the accident of personality has nothing to do with such things the first principle of all genuinely great architecture.  But it was not strong enough to stand up against the corruptest of all forms of corruption against Christians.  These stealthy worms, which under the cover of night, mist and duplicity, crept upon every individual, sucking him dry of all earnest interest in real things, of all instinct for reality this cowardly, effeminate and sugar coated gang gradually alienated all “souls,” step by step, from that colossal edifice, turning against it all the meritorious, manly and noble natures that had found in the cause of Rome their own cause, their own serious purpose, their own pride.

The whole labour of the ancient world gone for naught: I have no word to describe the feelings that such an enormity arouses in me.  And, considering the fact that its labour was merely preparatory, that with adamantine self consciousness it laid only the foundations for a work to go on for thousands of years, the whole meaning of antiquity disappears!  To what end the Greeks?  To what end the Romans?  All the prerequisites to a learned culture, all the methods of science, were already there; man had already perfected the great and incomparable art of reading profitably that first necessity to the tradition of culture, the unity of the sciences; the natural sciences, in alliance with mathematics and mechanics, were on the right road, the sense of fact, the last and more valuable of all the senses, had its schools, and its traditions were already centuries old!  Is all this properly understood?  Every essential to the beginning of the work was ready: and the most essential, it cannot be said too often, are methods, and also the most difficult to develop, and the longest opposed by habit and laziness.  What we have today reconquered, with unspeakable self discipline, for ourselves for certain bad instincts, certain Christian instincts, still lurk in our bodies that is to say, the keen eye for reality, the cautious hand, patience and seriousness in the smallest things, the whole integrity of knowledge all these things were already there, and had been there for two thousand years!  More, there was also a refined and excellent tact and taste!  Not as mere brain drilling!  Not as “German” culture, with its loutish manners!  But as body, as bearing, as instinct in short, as reality.  All gone for naught!  Overnight it became merely a memory!  The Greeks!  The Romans!  Instinctive nobility, taste, methodical inquiry, genius for organization and administration, faith in and the will to secure the future of man, a great yes to everything entering into the imperium Romanum and palpable to all the senses, a grand style that was beyond mere art, but had become reality, truth, life.  All overwhelmed in a night, but not by a convulsion of nature!  Not trampled to death by Teutons and others of heavy hoof!  But brought to shame by crafty, sneaking, invisible, anaemic vampires!  Not conquered, only sucked dry!  Hidden vengefulness, petty envy, became master!  Everything wretched, intrinsically ailing, and invaded by bad feelings, the whole ghetto world of the soul, was at once on top!

Yet more stupidity, lies, and cowardice.

Quota Queen Alert!

Hmmm…who was it who predicted the downfall of the Alt Right – that the Alt Right fever would eventually burn itself out?

“Movement” failure can be chalked up to three inter-related reasons:

1. A defective ideology; the same old tired fossilized memes, sweaty racial fantasies, obsessive ethnic fetishism, rigid dogma, all with a healthy helping of solipsism, self-delusion, and pseudoscience.

2. A failed leadership.  Affirmative action leads to incompetence, and this holds true not only for “women and minorities” in the broader society, but also for “cuck naggers” in Der Movement.

3. A significant fraction, possibly a majority, of rank-and-file activists are Type I Nutzi defectives.

So, the defective ideology justifies the affirmative action policy and attracts the Nutzis. The failed leaders grasp onto the ideology that props up their own “leadership,” while the Nutzis support and enable the tragicomic failures of their leaders.

Neither the leaders nor the followers will condemn themselves and break the cycle, and they certainly will not denounce the ideology that forms the center of (what passes for) their identity.

A New Movement needs to arise to displace the crumbling ruin of the Old.  Do I believe that will happen?  No, but I will continue being a “voice in the wilderness” and hold out hope.

Roissy endorses this comment:

One thing that beta male white knight faggots don’t want to hear about is the obsession that bitches have with wanting to fuck mass murderers. […]
If you want to live in some fantasy dreamworld where “they’re not all like that” then go ahead, but if you don’t accept the truth you’re just going to go through your entire life getting fucked over by these skanks.
Conversely, if you look at them as what they are – stupid, wild animals – they you might have a chance to make a relationship with one work. Just always remember that as a boyfriend/husband you are basically a zookeeper, trying to keep control over a twisted amoral beast.

I endorse the comment as well, the description is 100% correct.  It goes off the rails with its subsequent prescription: we need “game” you see, which is, in essence, pure pussy pedestalization; men need to modulate their every word and action, down to the most minute detail, to appeal to these “twisted amoral beasts.”

How about this: NO.

Sir MGTOW vs. the Yeastbuckets!

Yeah, and there’s no god either, but Frannie boy won’t tell you that.

The Sallistrian religious paradox: The higher one goes up the religious hierarchy the less likely one is to actually believe in god or all the other religious nonsense.

Some old hag fumbling with her rosaries in church believes unconditionally, a priest has his doubts, a bishop understands the value of religion for social control, and the college of cardinals, and the pope derived from then, knows full well the truth and its ideological utility.

Surprise, surprise.  “America’s Senator” fails again.

Hey Jeff, just do what you do best: stand around helplessly, looking like a Howdy Doody doll without the ventriloquist.

I don’t think so, Donnie.

Dem Russkis are already ahead of us and pulling away fast.  Hint: having a nuclear deterrent that dates from the 1960s and 70s, with some sprinkling from the 80s, is not going to scare Russia or China.  Another hint: the constant US trend to downscale its nuclear bomb arsenal in both numbers and yield per weapon is not going to scare anyone either.  I realize, Donnie, that your Presidency, nay your entire existence, is all about empty blustering, but the hard men of Russia and China are not going to be deterred by your windbag exhortations.  No, only true force will do the job, and true force includes missiles than are not older than the fathers of the men whose fingers are on the button, and true force includes nuclear bombs than actually have yields greater than the early atom bombs of the late 40s.

Chinese Nationalist Whore writes:

As a Chinese, I come from a highly collectivistic society and I find it deeply naïve to think that Jews as a group will not have a major advantage over individuals who do not network in the same ethnocentric way.

Yes, indeed, and one good reason (besides of course their alien genotypes and phenotypes) Chinese should not be allowed into Western nations and should not be allowed on Western blogs.

As a kind Japanese writer named Riki Rei at Counter Currents points out, the Chinese elite is in bed with the Jewish elite.

Of course, the MR Silkers who say that any criticism of China is due to the critic being “a Jew or someone who sucks Jewish cock” (their words, not mine, in case you the reader are offended by the vulgarity).

Of course the Chinese are “in bed” with the Jews – the problem is that the Silkers want the Chinese to be in bed with them, literally, preferably all those Chinese girls with guns who are going to the “border guards of the West.”  Among White manlets, Silk Road White nationalism is nothing more or less than masochistic yellow fever fetishism.

Two Levels of Insurgency

Outer and inner.

Any student of insurgency, of warfare against a stronger power, of guerrilla tactics, of dissent opposition, understands that the fundamental strategic objective of the insurgency is to maintain its existence.

Insurgent armies will often avoid full frontal assault against the entrenched power, will engage in hit-and-run tactics that weaken that enemy while preserving the existence of the insurgent force.  The mere continued existence of the insurgency, in the face of a more powerful enemy, is itself a victory, it undermines the power of the enemy and the confidence of the people in that power, and it allows the insurgency to exist to fight another day.  As long as the insurgency exists, it has the potential for overcoming the enemy, if by attrition if by no other mechanism.  The continued existence of the insurgency will attract followers, it will allow for growth and adaption, it may attract the support of other powers; this is why the enemy state prioritizes the complete elimination of the insurgency – “containment” is not good enough, it is an admission of defeat – and why the insurgency itself puts a premium on existence.  Thus, the brilliant strategy of George Washington in the American Revolution, the Fabian Strategy (despite the negatives that strategy can bring and Washington’s own frustration at his critics), that allowed the Colonial army to survive in the field long enough so that important foreign support, and eventual victory, was achieved.

In this context, the Outer Insurgency is that of racial nationalists/nationalists/Far Right against the System, against the globalists.  Priority number one has to be continued existence of the Far Right opposition; after all, if you do not exist, you will be unable to eventually come to power yourself.  At the current time, the power imbalance between the Far Right and the System requires the former to engage in a Fabian strategy and guerilla tactics against the latter, a form of memetic/political/metapolitical ju-jitsu to use the clumsy bulk power of the System against itself.  A wonderful example of this is the “It’s OK to be White” meme, which puts the System in a lose-lose situation. If the System ignores the meme, ignores the posters and leaflets, then it displays weakness and emboldens imitators and others to push the memetic envelope further; if the System acts against the meme, then it “heightens the contradictions” and makes people wonder: “why isn’t it OK to be White?”  The System is forced to choose between being weak and being openly anti-White in a ham-fisted manner; the System cannot simply say, “Yes, it is OK to be White,” since the System’s entire foundational ideology is anti-Whiteness.  That’s a form of ideological guerilla warfare, a memetic insurgency, which attacks the System at its ideological core without putting the existence of the still-weak insurgency at risk.  Priority one: existence.  Priority two: attack and undermine the opposition. Leading to priority three: systematically replace the opposition and achieve power.

The second form of insurgency – the Inner Insurgency?  That’s the insurgency within the “movement” itself; relatively weak dissidents, presented by EGI Notes for example, staking out a niche in opposition to the (in relative terms) clumsy ham-fisted “movement,” which needs to be critiqued and undermined. Thus, it is the first priority for the Inner Insurgency to survive, to have a continued existence, to engage in a Fabian Strategy when necessary, to mimic on a smaller internal scale the same struggle that is taking place on a larger scale at the level of the Outer Insurgency of Der Movement vs. The System.

The “movement” has made this Inner Insurgency necessary by not engaging in the necessary reforms and by not giving dissidents “a place at the table” to bring their legitimate grievances to be aired without being summarily dismissed or labeled “crazy.”

Indeed, this “craziness” derives from the same source as consistently being correct about things, recognizing problems at an early stage, and realizing trends before they become apparent (if they ever do) to the “sane” among us.

I attempt to view things as they are, without sentimentality, or pity, or self-delusion, or moral posturing, or dogma, to get to the core of an issue, understand it, and project trends going forward.

This of course gets me into trouble both in Der Movement and in “real life,” as I come up against people (the vast majority of people fit into this category) who view things through one prism or another of the aforementioned characteristics that distorts their vision, often giving them whatever picture they want to see, or one that comfortably fits into moral conformity and social acceptability.  To them, I’m “crazy” or “bitter” or “impossible” or “autistic” or “cruel” or “cold” or whatever other ad hominem critiques of my character (some of which may have a kernel of truth) that enables the people in question to disregard my message and feel good about their own delusions.  Also, by disparaging my character, these people don’t have to engage with the unpleasant reality that I’m right in my prognostications 99+% of the time.  Rather than dealing with the hard realities inherent in a truthful message, the weak-minded turn their fear and frustration against the messenger.

I am of course not infallible and do make error; this is usually when I am relatively uninterested in an issue or outcome and do not dissect too deeply into it.  For example, I was wrong about Trump’s chances of being elected in 2016; however, while that was important, it wasn’t an issue of deep existential concern for me.  My real interest was how the Trump campaign was affecting the political, social, cultural, and moral climate in America, its potential to promote racial balkanization and sociopolitical chaos, and the long-term effects of Trump on future populist/racialist “demagogues.”  Much of my predictions in this regard have come true, and we’ve seen the spectacle of System hacks like Frank Rich repeating certain points of my The Nazi Next Time essay two years after I wrote it.  So it goes….

The Inner Insurgency continues.

Crush the Infamy!
