A Telling Quote

It explains much.

From the novel Majestrum by Matthew Hughes:

A lifelong habit of being right also had the effect of diminishing one’s social appeal, especially among those who prefer to keep the bubble of their various illusions a safe distance from a needle-sharp and probing intelligence.

There probably is not another sentence in the history of literature that more accurately reflects the true underlying reasons for the hostility of “movement leaders” for the “crazy and bitter” Ted Sallis.

And the whole interplay is amplified by the “rage of a privileged class” effect of affirmative action beneficiaries smashing up against the wall of the Peter Principle, and taking out their frustrations on those who have more ability but who are not part of the quota set.

It’s unfortunate that such attitudes stand in the way of pro-White interests, and of properly utilizing the available human material to advance those interests, but it is what it is.

Movement Good Old Boy Mafia

One of the boys.

Notice the mention, and link to, Greg Johnson at Counter-Currents.  I am sure readers of EGI Notes can think of certain blogs dealing with race, science, immigration, politics, etc. that go unmentioned by Der Movement, Inc.  Now, you may argue, goodwhite Derbyshire can hardly be expected to link to blogs or blog writers who have been sharply critical of him.  It’s only natural.

That’s some low information moralizing, friends.  The following are some of Johnson’s characterizations of Derbyshire made at the Counter-Currents blog (emphasis added):

Derbyshire, by the way, is not a White Nationalist at all. He is a conservative cognitive elitist who is married to a Chinese woman and has two non-white children. Beyond that, he has attacked White Nationalists in the most scurrilous terms, referring to AmRen attendees as “latrine flies” and attacking Kevin MacDonald on the most swinish possible grounds. It is only when this sucking up to Jews and centrists failed to save him from the charges of racism that he began to associate with White Nationalists, who were all too willing to cross his palm with silver. Frankly it is disgusting that the donations of White Nationalists are being sluiced into the pockets of this opportunist.

2. RE Derbyshire. Yes, every dog should get one bite. But Derbyshire has been at it long enough to show his agenda. Of course, Derbyshire has “grown” a bit in recent years. At one time, he referred to Am Ren attendees as “latrine flies.” But he changed his tune after Jared Taylor crossed his palm with silver. He’s a fox in the henhouse, eating the lunches of genuine pro-whites.

I first learned of Derbyshire when he penned his critique of Kevin MacDonald and his defense of the craven philosemitism of National Review. That was all I needed to know. He is a loathsome individual, and I avoid his work completely.

You were saying?

Now, in actuality, I agree with Johnson that Derbyshire is a “loathsome individual” and I would go further and say VDARE is a loathsome blog.  They have an agenda that is not compatible with pan-European racial nationalism and therefore their behavior is to be expected.  However, the point is not that the Alt Wrong should be citing the genuine Far Right, the point is simply to demonstrate that there really is a “one of the boys” network – a “mafia” if you will – within the “movement” in which affirmative action recipients, despite harsh attacks against one another, will still consider each other “one of the boys” while those outside the quota system are not.  As Der Movement (hypocritically) likes to say about affirmative action when it is used by the System to favor Negroes and other Coloreds – affirmative action is corrosive of merit, of accomplishment, of quality. Endless decades of “movement” failure are thus explained.  That is the point.

Larson and Counter-Currents

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Read there.  Excerpts, emphasis added;

Among the candidates running against incumbent Rep. Barbara Comstock in Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District is a self-described pedophile who has allegedly admitted he raped his late spouse and advocates what he calls “benevolent white supremacy.” 

After all, this is exactly the kind of press, and public representation, Der Movement needs.  If you in any way question that, you’re obviously “crazy and bitter.”

HuffPost reports that Larson used “Leucosticte” and “Lysander” as user names to post in the chat rooms, where he endorsed child rape and sexual abuse. He reportedly wrote one essay about father-daughter incest and another about raping his ex-wife repeatedly and was asked by HuffPost whether there was a “grain of truth” in the essays. He said there was, and suggested that it’s not uncommon for women to have rape fantasies. 

It is uncommon to write about it and then run for Congress.

Here are some of the agenda items in his lengthy campaign manifesto:

Legalize the possession and distribution of child pornography;

I suppose a certain English (ex) illegal alien will be jumping on the Larson bandwagon.  All aboard!

End minimum age for consumption of alcohol;

That’s the Beavis-and-Butthead Alt Right plank of the manifesto.

Repeal Violence Against Women Act. “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands,” Larson writes; 

I won’t argue too much against that.

Legalize early marriage

How early?

Legalizing suicide. “Legalizing barbiturates, heavy machine guns, etc. makes available reliable and peaceful means of suicide for those who need them,” his manifesto reads;

If he wants to thin the herd, he can start with Der Movement.

Favors right to discriminate;

OK.

Legalize insider trading;

The Jewish plank of the manifesto?

Puts forward the idea that Jewish state should be in “more defensible location,” like the state of New Jersey;

That’s great.  Let’s move Israel to New Wopsey. Fuggedaboutit!

End laws that ban felons from owning firearms.

Self-interest?

Larson’s manifesto also reveres Adolf Hitler as a “white supremacist hero,” as well as Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism.

Did I need to tell you this is a Type I?

On a related issue.

A realistic assessment of our situation is that we simply do not have a ready collective of prepared people who are ready for prime time. We don’t have a network of disciplined organizations full of large numbers of people who are ready and able to effectively present our message to the American public, or take effective, focused action.
Are we working on it? Absolutely.

Absolutely!  After all, Revilo Oliver talked about 50 years of “movement” failure – 50 years ago.  Maybe in another 100 years all the quota queens will have figured it all out, and they can proceed to save both of the White people still existing at that time.

Are we making great strides? Most definitely. Do we have promising candidates? For sure. American Renaissance is an utterly invaluable resource.

Invaluable if you are Jewish or East Asian.

But it is also definitely true that we just aren’t there yet. We’re building it. And do you know what it looks like to build effective organization? It means sorting the wheat from the chaff so we can create something that is all wheat and no chaff—and that means criticizing the chaff so that it can get out of the way and make room for the wheat.

Yes, that’s why I criticize Der Movement in general and Counter-Currents in particular. All the chaff have glass jaws though, good at “punching right” but not at taking a punch.

Notwithstanding the fact that what we stand for are principles that vast numbers of people do (and should) consider common sense, we are a fringe political movement. And fringe political movements attract weirdos no matter what their political position.

A point I’ve made online for, literally, years.

Online movements attract people who have extra time on their hands and choose to spend it reading on the Internet. To make it into our niche in particular, we had to be curious and intelligent enough to read and comprehend essays on things like human biodiversity…

Let’s read and comprehend pseudoscience, that’s the ticket.  We’ll look at the Pyramids of Atlantis next.

…—but not so curious and intelligent that we’d already made a career in academia, where acknowledging these findings would risk ruining everything we’d built. 

Kevin MacDonald.  Frank Salter.  Those are academics. How much support does Salter get from Der Movement?

The situation we are in is intrinsically, inherently paradoxical. To succeed by “democratic” means, we need to reach ordinary people; but we are, by definition, weirdos.

Yes, and let us make ourselves more weird by rambling about “the spectral,” “Kali Yuga,” “the men who can’t tell time,” and other such nonsense.

Furthermore, “public leadership” is a position which is doubly attractive to the worst of peoples’ personality traits. People with families and children whose well-being they care about are inherently less likely to do it, but the more narcissistic a person is, the more likely they will.

Again, I’ve written about this over and over again.  The social pricing problem needs to be solved.  The incompetent affirmative action “movement leadership” are not the ones to do it though.

For a movement whose ideals are built on hierarchy and the elevation of “greatness” as a moral value of central importance, this reluctance to make high demands of those we call “leaders” is especially ironic.

Yes, indeed. And what website are you writing this for?

And for a movement so focused on mocking the modern world’s obsession with “inclusivity” and how this causes everything from the military to firefighting departments and educational faculties to constantly lower their standards regarding actual performance and success, we sure do seem to be demanding a heavy share of standard-lowering “inclusivity” of our own.

Yes, indeed. And what website are you writing this for?

If anything, what we really need is to be a whole hell of a lot more exclusive.

Exclude Counter-Currents.

Power, Approach, and Inhibition

It applies to Der Movement.

Let’s give credit to the gamesters for bringing this to our attention.  PDF here.

We can ignore the absurd sociopolitical implications and statements in this paper made by the (obviously leftist) authors; e.g., that European-Americans are socially more powerful than are Coloreds and men are socially more powerful than women, while the reality of today’s Multicultural America is that the White man is a low caste subaltern demographic, discriminated against by both law and politically correct custom, and that the socially dominant groups are Jews, Coloreds, and shrieking feminist harridan women.

In all cases, emphasis added.

The fundamental concept in social science is Power, in the same sense that Energy is the fundamental concept in physics . . . The laws of social dynamics are laws which can only be stated in terms of power. (Russell, B. 1938. Power: A new social analysis. London: Allen and Unwin, page 10.)

We define power as an individual’s relative capacity to modify others’ states by providing or withholding resources or administering punishments.

That’s as good definition as any.  One can think of ways this applies to Der Movement.  One example – withholding access to blog forums and “banning” critics from participation.

Elevated power, we propose, involves reward-rich environments and freedom and, as a consequence, triggers approach-related positive affect, attention to rewards, automatic cognition, and disinhibited behavior. In contrast, reduced power is associated with increased threat, punishment, and social constraint and thereby activates inhibition-related negative affect, vigilant, systematic cognition, and situationally constrained behavior.

This is key.  Why do people always want positions of authority? To think it is only about material rewards betrays a strictly economic-materialist worldview.  Status?  Yes, but status leads to power itself, and what good is status anyway?  The satisfaction of exercising authority and getting your ideas actualized?  Self-actualization itself?  Why are any of those things desirable?  Answer – it leads to: less stress, lower cortisol levels, more testosterone, more uninhibited behavior, a more positive affect in every way; people in power feel better, they are objectively better even at the level of their hormones.  Those not in power are depressed, anxious, inhibited, wary and worried, have a negative affect, more stress, and a negative hormonal profile.  Think of the contrast: a person who makes decisions about others, or another person who has decisions made about him by a powerful manager.  The first person controls his fate, the second person has his fate controlled by someone else.  Who do you think actually has more stress?  Feels better or worse?

When those in power complain about how “stressed” they are, and the “burdens” of “power and responsibility,” that is just a bunch of “squid ink” to fool their subordinates.  In reality, it are those subordinates who are the stressed and burdened.  If those in power were really “suffering” so much, why don’t they just resign their positions of authority and let someone else do it, eh?

Authority is power that derives from institutionalized roles or arrangements…Dominance is behavior that has the acquisition of power as its end, yet power can be attained without performing acts of dominance (e.g., leaders who attain their positions through their cooperative and fair-minded style). Thus status, authority, and dominance are all potential determinants of power as we define it.

Including “status” as a “movement leader.”

Powerful managers, as a consequence, valued subordinates’ performances less, attributed subordinates’ efforts to their own control rather than subordinates’ motivations, and desired greater distance from their subordinates.

Look at the tinpot “leaders” of Der Movement, who exemplify these traits very precisely.

Certain physical characteristics…are also associated with elevated power.

Such as Der Movement’s ethnic affirmative action program.

…we predict that elevated power will be associated with increased positive mood (Hypothesis 1) High-power individuals more frequently experience and express positive mood and emotion. Low-power individuals more frequently experience and express negative mood and emotion. This pattern of results was observed across various measures of affect, measurement contexts, and determinants of power (e.g., peer ratings, ethnicity, and SES).

That was discussed above.  Power improves quality of life.  It is the ultimate stimulant.  Powerlessness is a depressant.

We propose that high-power individuals, who are disposed to approach, will attend to potential rewards rather than to threats and as a consequence will construe others through a lens of self-interest…We further expect low-power individuals to selectively attend to punishments and threats (Hypothesis 7). The literature on anxiety lends indirect support to this hypothesis.

Potential rewards, like the tin cup panhandling.  Or sex. The increase in positive affect is the primary reward, but why not enrich yourself in other ways at the same time?

elevated power is associated with more automatic, less complex styles of reasoning, whereas reduced power increases controlled information processing, deliberation, and the complexity of thought.

“Less complex styles of reasoning.”  See – Extreme vetting meaning “are you Swedish?”  Charlottesville Ragnarok.  Decades of constant failure and an inability to build an infrastructure.  The inability to realize you need such an infrastructure before “going public.”  Regurgitating fossilized dogma over and over again.  The constant Man on White Horse Syndrome mistakes, repeated endlessly.  Adulterous trailer park soap operas.  Gambling away supporter donations.

Proposition 12: Elevated Power Increases the Likelihood of Socially Inappropriate Behavior

Behold Der Movement!  Drunken Beavis-and-Butthead podcasts.  Acting like jackasses.  Petty feuding.  Adultery with colleagues’ wives. Gambling with supporter donations. The list goes on.

More generally, we would expect factors that reduce the freedom with which the powerful can act to dampen approach-related tendencies. In fact, many social values and practices, from conceptions of virtuous leaders to institutionalized checks and balances, have as their very purpose the placing of constraints on those with power. Drawing on extant literatures, we propose that three processes—stability of power relations, accountability, and social values embodied in cultural and individual differences—act as constraints, thus moderating the effects of power on affect, cognition, and behavior.

Note the importance of accountability (and see the next point, below).  Of course those in power in Der Movement want to protect their petty fiefdoms by reacting hysterically to anyone who wants to hold them accountable.  Those in power have an inherent distaste for accountability, which by its very nature restrains their power and suppresses the positive affect they derive from that power.

The excesses of powerful leaders—their propensity for disinhibited behavior and stereotypic, error-prone social perceptions—are certain to feed into the processes that lead to changes in leadership.

And that is one key to EGI Notes – enabling the processes that hold “movement” “leadership” accountable for their behavior and for their failure, leading to “changes in leadership.”  “Error prone perceptions” – isn’t that interesting, particularly how I have been chronicling how Der Movement’s “leaders” are constantly wrong, while the “crazy and bitter” Ted Sallis is constantly correct.

Leaders can of course justify their power and its rewards by contributing positively to whatever they are leading, by benefiting others as they themselves benefit, by producing value for others, for their people, and for society.  In this manner, the positive affect and other rewards of power can be viewed as justified compensation.  But if the leaders are inept – at times, actually destructive – then they are just free-riding parasites.

Donald Hypercuck

Obama wouldn’t do it, but the obese effeminate leftist Trump did.

Read here.  Trump pardons race-mixing Negro boxer Jack Johnson, who was infamous for physically abusing and marrying White women.

Read here, emphasis added:

Johnson engaged in various relationships including three documented marriages. All of his wives were white. At the height of his career, Johnson was excoriated by the press for his flashy lifestyle and for having married white women…Johnson met Etta Terry Duryea, a Brooklyn socialite and former wife of Clarence Duryea, at a car race in 1909. In 1910, Johnson hired a private investigator to follow Duryea after suspecting she was having an affair with his chauffeur. On Christmas day, Johnson confronted Duryea and beat her so badly she was hospitalized. They reconciled and were married in January 1911. Prone to depression, her condition worsened because of Johnson’s abuse and infidelity. She committed suicide in September 1912, shooting herself.

The Far Left anti-White ultracuck Trump probably fantasizes about Melania, Ivanka, and Stormy all together with Jack Johnson.

       

No doubt that homoerotic Trump fanboys like Roissy will “spin” this as a “4-D chess” attempt by Trump to appeal to the “hoteps” – after all, in classic Republicuck fashion, his White base can be safely taken for granted and ignored.  Or, perhaps, we’ll just get more gifs of Trump strutting around like Vince McMahon, breathless pontifications about Trumps’s jackass Tweets, or more delusional rambling about how the defeat of the Deep State is “happening.”

All that’s really “happening” is Trump’s lickspittle groveling to the Negro.  “Black pill?”  Trump is a walking Black Pill, and I’m glad to (once again) remind the reader that EGI Notes accurately labeled Trump a Negrophilic beta race cuck long before he was elected, in contrast to the pathetic Man on White Horse screeching coming from the cognitively deficient quota queens of Der Movement’s affirmative action “leadership.”

Saint Francis the Prescient

It all sounds familiar.

Read here. Emphasis added.

I have just returned from the Convention in Los Angeles. I see now why you did not feel any urge to go. You already known, apparently, that which I had to find out—viz. that the movement in this form and under this leadership is devoid of a future. 

Hey, that sounds like Ted Sallis talking about Der Movement. Inc. Was Yockey “crazy and bitter” as well?  Dementia praecox, indeed!

The magazine, the newsletters, the World New Service which Lohbeck and I are founding—these indeed are valuable, but of themselves they are not politics. At most they are useful adjuncts to politics.

I met Smith—in company with his wife and with Lohbeck—and he delivered a speech at the lunch table. He had not read Imperium nor the London “Proclamation,” because, as Lohbeck tells me, he reads nothing. 

Sounds like Trump.

Immediately after the speech, Smith delivered one of his own, attacking me, and saying that Americans love democracy, that he would not unite with me in my hatred of the Jew…

Was Smith a HBD race realist Alt Wronger?

…nor in my love for the Western Civilization, but only in the principles of Jesus Christ. Exactly what that means I do not know, but perhaps it was only a way of calling attention to the fact that I had not mentioned Christ. The entire Convention was primarily Christ and Christianity, and secondarily anti-Jewish, mostly on the basis that the Jews are anti-Christ.

Christianity – or, should we say, Christinsanity – must be mercilessly destroyed.

Such morbid suspicion could arise in a case like Elmhurst’s, for he has indeed suffered long and hard persecution, and he lives in the environment of New York, where, he says, Jews are constantly trying to poison him. 

Oy vey!  Don’t eat those gelfite fish!

I thought that you should know these things, for the future.

Yockey’s future is our present.  Nothing much has changed in the ludicrous clownshow of the “movement,” has it?

I do not believe Elmhurst did much damage to the relations between Smith and me, since I believe Smith’s attitude did not change, that he is not yet ready for the kind of political thinking that I brought to him, and that, in any event, he is not political. In his beliefs, he is undoubtedly sincere, but in his actions, so to speak, he is not. His person, his family—in every speech he mentions his wife, mother, and father at least ten times—“the clean loins of my father, and the pure womb of my mother who carried me,” etc.—and himself at least thirty times—his security, physical and financial, are of the very highest importance to him. He lacks entirely what we call in Europe the heroic world-outlook. He explained to the audience at one point that he does not live in St. Louis because there was a plot to kill him in St. Louis, and that under these conditions, his mother could not visit him in his home, nor could he enjoy peace and quiet with his wife. One of the strong points which he makes to his audiences is that he and his wife are as happy a couple as could be found in America. In the closing speech of the Convention, he talked for four minutes about his stomach, his digestion, and the fact that he does not need to take laxatives.

Being around the “movement” for any length of time should sufficiently sicken anyone so that they will have a copious gastrointestinal flow without the need for any laxatives.

Jews and other guks who tried to intervene were silenced by the audience. Guk, by the way, is our new word for anyone who does not belong to the white race and Western Civilization. It is our word corresponding to the Jewish word Gentile or goy—any non-member. It is the word American soldiers use to designate all Koreans, north and south. Gannon will introduce the word in England, and it must enter all languages.

A Story of Disillusion and Hope

Navigating the “movement “morass.

It should be clear that although I am a racial activist, a racial nationalist, I am NOT a member of Der Movement, Inc. – actually, I am unalterably opposed to it.  Thus, I’m part of a broad movement, but not part of “the movement.”  I was at one time in Der Movement, and since both the movement and “the movement” have existential implications for all of our genetic interests, let’s have EGI Notes delve into  my journey through these activist streams.

Essentially, there have been four basic stages in my journey through the wilderness of racial activism, and this (brief) story may be useful to genuine newcomers to the scene.

First: Entry to real-world, analog activism, before the Internet age, as a naive, starry-eyed, and relatively young newcomer (albeit one with a family background of Bunkerite racial conservatism and as a person interested in the historical Far Right). So, there were meetings in the “little rooms” mentioned in this Dresden song (although some rooms were in actuality quite big, and none ended up being “sacred” – and if the spirit of Saint Adolf was there, he must have been quite disgusted), there were some good people, well-meaning people, but the usual combination of overall defectiveness and horrifically bad leadership made the entire endeavor a failure.

After experiencing grade-A freakishness, ineptitude, mind-numbing stupidity, and hypocrisy, I dropped out, and took time to think and reconsider.

Second: Introduction to digital activism and testing the leadership waters.  Thus came the Internet and the rise of online racial activism, which I was involved in from the very beginning.  Thinking that “if you want something done right, do it yourself” I decided I should play more of a leadership role.  However, knowing well the dogmas, fetishes, and affirmative action policies of Der Movement, I had skepticism whether: (1) I would be accepted in any sort of leadership role and (2) whether the “movement” was willing to ditch their dogma (to them, something actually “sacred”) and move in a new direction.  The Legion Europa project was, ultimately, simply a test, answering the questions implicit in points 1 and 2.  The answers: NO and NO.  Time to back off again, and go back to the “drawing board.”

Third: Not a leader, but a contributor. Well then I thought, at least I can contribute to the “movement’s” ideological development, promote useful ideas like Salter’s EGI, and perhaps move Der Movement in directions closer to my ideals.  This was the phase of my writing for “movement” publications and writing for “movement” blogs. Ultimately, as more recent readers of my work understand, this didn’t work out either, since the “movement” was never able, or even willing, to shed any of its underlying fundamental flaws. They don’t even accept or understand that they have any flaws, they are in fact all delusional.  One can one see this delusion, for example, when Trump publicly denounces the Alt Right, and signs a binding document pledging to devote all the resources of the federal government to oppose the Alt Right and pro-White activism in general, and this same Alt Right crows “we made the President come out and agree with our position.”  These guys are off in “la-la-land” – there’s no hope there.  Another faction of the Alt Right enables an “anti-fascist” infiltrator to joyride through their “movement” for a year, advising them on how to vet people (cue laughter) and giving talks about “anti-fascist infiltration.”  Instead of mea culpa, they instead hysterically react to criticism and “ban” people (hint: you really can’t ban someone who is not part of your clown show to begin with).

Fourth: One part bemused observer, one part critic deconstructing he “movement.” One part hopeful visionary (with no delusions of success) hoping to build a New Movement.  One does what one can.  Optimism is cowardice I suppose (thanks, Spengler).

If we accept the premise that the racial situation for Whites will continue to deteriorate, and that an untenable situation will one day be reached, there are two most likely alternative outcomes for the “movement.”

#1 – If I am wrong about Der Movement, and it goes from success to success, and carries Whites from a dangerous state to their salvation, then I’ll be quite pleased to admit I was wrong, and do what I can do assist in that salvation (given my disagreement with basic “movement” dogma, I’d probably carve out my own little “movement” niche, or associate with like-minded individuals who had already done so).

#2 – If I am right about Der Movement, then the White demand for effective leadership in the midst of the growing racial crisis will lead to the eventual emergence of leadership that will sweep the flotsam and jetsam of Der Movement from the scene.  Unfortunately, this may well be cul-de-sac leadership: reactionary military strongmen or Trump-like hardcore civic nationalist populists – both types who would just kick the can several decades down the road for when the racial crisis reemerges.  Thus, by taking up Far Right niche space, Der Movement is preventing the emergence of the sort of real leadership that can actually solve the racial crisis.
