TOO Triples Down

Der Movement marches on.

As a follow-up to thissee this:

In 1924 Americans restricted immigration to conform to the ethnic status quo of 1890. What they really needed to do was to deport the newcomers in droves.

Of course, Jews only made a fraction of those newcomers – the rest were Southern and Eastern Europeans, some of the descendants of which are pro-White activists and who in the past defended MacDonald’s work (including defending it from good old boy Derbyshire).  The above quote could have specifically said that the Jewish newcomers should have been deported, but it did not.

Now, from the standpoint of the ethnic interests of America’s core population of 1924, the above deportation sentiment can certainly have validity – better yet, not to have allowed the newcomers in to begin with.  But then, the same could be said of the earlier German, Irish, and Scandinavian newcomers for the ethnic interests of America’s core population of, say, a century earlier, but we’re not allowed to mention that, I suppose.

Even an more fundamental error: bringing Negro slaves to America.  Worse: letting them stay after being freed, which was sheer madness.  One world historical mistake after another; apparently, it’s all the fault of the wops and hunkies.

Regardless of what ethnic interests were at different points of American history, 1924 was 94 years ago.  Der Movement should consider that they are constantly alienating White Americans of Southern and Eastern European descent (the same ones instrumental for putting the “movement’s” hero Trump in the White House – no, contra Roissy, it wasn’t the caravans of Amish).  Apparently, Der Movement, back up as it is by decades of endless failure, believes this approach of alienation is a wise strategy.

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.

State of Der Movement, 4/1/18

It is not good.

Read this, emphasis added:

…for the first time since 2010 — the year we were founded — Counter-Currents lost money… 

…What happened? The answer is simple: Charlottesville, then PayPal deplatformed us, and we lost our monthly donors. Many donors did not miss a beat. They went straight to our Donate page and signed up for monthly pledges with their credit cards. Others signed up at Hatreon, which is now defunct. But many never returned. Some were wedded to PayPal. Others took it as an opportunity to re-evaluate their spending. Others were swept up in the widespread post-Charlottesville disappearances. Whatever their reasons, we lost a significant number of supporters, and that put us in the red.

Probably, the multiple infiltrations, as well as the Johnson vs. Spencer/Friberg feud eruption, can be added to that list of reasons. Although I will agree. if forced to name one reason more important than the others, that Charlottesville has to be named as reason #1.  The other things are problems, and serious ones, but they added on more problems to that termed here “Charlottesville Ragnarok.” All the Alt Right “spin” aside, the Unite the Right fiasco was one of the biggest blows against the progress of White racial activism in America.  Don’t get me wrong: the Far Right has every right (no pun intended) of having access to public spaces, and there is nothing wrong with claiming the right to such spaces, if you do so with adequate planning and understanding of the underlying realities.

It’s not like all the fearless leaders shouldn’t have seen that coming.  It’s not like it was so difficult to predict that a poorly planned mass rally would end in disaster.  Most of all, it should have been known that the System works hand-in-glove with “Antifa” – and for the purposes of this post, “Antifa” describes all of the currently extant Far Left domestic terrorism groups, regardless of what they call themselves.

The “movement,” with all its grand intellectuals, is unable to comprehend the difference between an official de jure factoid and an established, truth-on-the-ground, de facto reality.  The following three statements constitute the de facto reality in America (and with slight rewriting of the statements, applies for most of Western Europe as well).

1. Antifa is part of the System.

2. Antifa is part of the US government.

3. Antifa is part of the Trump administration.

Let us consider each statement in turn, from the perspective of Der Movement.  Most of the Alt Right would, I believe, agree with Statement One will little quibbling; after all, it is obviously true (but that underscores the gross incompetence of Der Movement, because if Statement One is obviously true, the  behavior of the Charlottesville government and police should have been anticipated and planned for).  A smaller fraction of activists would agree with Statement Two; although in reality Statements One and Two are equivalent, in that the US government is part of the System (and NOT the other way around, by the way), so all who agree with One should also agree with Two.

It is Statement Three that would cause problems for the dimwitted Type I Alt Right Trump fanboys; this ties into the lack of understanding to my previous comment at this blog that “President Donald Trump is the head of Antifa.”

Now, that last comment is not meant to be taken literally, in the official de jure sense.  Of course, it is not true in the literal sense.  After all, Antifa loathes Trump and his supporters, consider them all “racist fascist bigots” and actually considers Trump, if anything, “the head of the Alt Right.”  For his part, Trump considers himself a “law and order right wing populist.”

But I’m not talking about official roles here, and I’m not talking about perceptions, and I’m not talking about a literal reality in which Trump gives the leftists their marching orders.  No, I’m talking here about on-the-ground de facto reality.

Consider: Trump as President is the head of the US government’s law enforcement. It is his constitutional obligation as head of the federal branch of government, assisted by his Attorney General, to clamp down on domestic terrorists (including domestic terrorists who attack his own supporters at rallies!).  For Trump and Sessions to take action against Antifa is not some sort of crazy, rightist fantasy; it is part of their mainstream obligation, their constitutional responsibility.  When Far Left domestic terrorists run wild in the streets (often masked, further violating the law), it is the OBLIGATION and the RESPONSIBILITY of Trump and Sessions to take action.  This they do not do.  Their inaction enables domestic terrorism and allows the Far Left to act with impunity.  Why Trump and Sessions behave in this manner is not the point, the point is that, whatever the reason, this is what they do.  Not only that, but Trump signs congressional edicts condemning the victims of the domestic terrorists (and some of these victims are Trump’s own supporters!), pledging to use the resources of the federal government against the victims.  Therefore, by unimpeachable logic, it is Trump (and Sessions) who enable Antifa; therefore, the latter can reasonably be seen as part of the government of the former.  As long as Trump and Sessions refuse their lawful obligation to take action, it is a de facto tacit approval of the leftists.  That the Far Left hates Trump, and that Trump may call them “bad guys,” is irrelevant.  Action, or the lack thereof, is relevant.

If Der Movement understood all of this, understood that the entire Charlottesville system would be against them, that Trump would condemn them, and that Sessions would refuse to use the power of his office against the Far Left, then Charlottesville 2.0 would never have happened.  But it did happen, so clearly Der Movement understands nothing.

This is relevant to the funding issue since it is possible that some of the loss of funding is due to donors becoming disgusted by, and weary of, constant failure and bad judgment.

I’ve already written before on what needs to be done, so no need to repeat all of that; suffice to say it is time for a strategic retreat and some quiet, behind-the-scenes building infrastructure in-depth, which is what should have happened after Trump’s election. The Type II response to Trump being elected would have been “we’ve got a least four years of breathing room; let’s take advantage of this interregnum to really build and prepare for the interesting times ahead.” Instead we got the Type I approach of publicity, mass rallies, cosplay costumes, juvenile bravado, immature podcasts, and comedic infiltrations.  Obviously new leadership, with fresh perspectives, is required; just as obviously, the continued affirmative action program in the “movement” will prevent the emergence of that leadership.

Let us consider more “movement” insanity. What respect for, and interest in, had for Faye’s work significantly evaporated after reading this nonsense.  Can we come back to reality for a moment, and deal with the issues at hand? I mean, yes, good science fiction/fantasy (as opposed to bad, such as March of the Titans) can be thought-provoking, and thus useful in helping to consider alternative future possibilities, but this Fayeian nonsense is boring and juvenile. And of course it led to a stereotypical Type I comment:

Snigga Odinson
A day in the life of a delusional capitalist who dreams of muh Western Civilization.
There is no future outside of the forest!

Right…Whites should be in the forest, eating twigs and branches, or “snug in our hobbit hole” as one defunded failed “leader” so eloquently put it – we’ll just leave it to the Asians to build and maintain technological societies, employ nuclear weapons mounted on hypersonic missiles, engage in eugenics, conduct scientific research, explore and colonize space, and reap the benefits of exploiting science and technics.  What could go wrong with that?  Why, they’ll just leave us in peace, snug in our hobbit holes in the forest, and the borders of the West can be guarded by Chinese girls with guns (high, high, high-IQ Chinese girls, let us not forget).  And then Der Movement wonders why even thick-headed fanboys are starting to wise up and become tight with the purse strings?

Then we read Sailer’s typical rambling.

As someone with a background in the natural sciences, I can assure the reader that the net impact of population genetics studies is to CONFIRM and SUPPORT the racial-biological agenda of this blog, which was NEVER about “purity” – see my writing here (deemed “sophistry” by a deranged mestizo Mexican Nordicist) – but about genetic differences between populations, differences in genetic kinship, and how all of that should be interpreted politically through the lens of Salter’s EGI thesis.

“Racial purity” has never been a driving force, or meme, of this blog; it has instead been the driving force, and fossilized meme, of the ethnic fetishists and crazed Type I Nutzis opposed to this blog. The Levantine alien Reich can scream and cry all he wants, but his work in toto strongly supports some of the main theses underlying what is discussed here, which are in part tied to the idea of genetic difference, NOT “purity.”

Read or listen to this.

They have not yet realized that slow, patient, and relentless effort may be required, possibly over multiple generations, before the National Alliance’s ideas of radical racial-nationalism will triumph as the best, and indeed the only reasonable, way to govern society. We’ve always known we were in this for the long haul, and you should too.

Right…which is why, in my experience, the National Alliance always had a “the revolution is just around the corner” Der Tag philosophy, with one prominent NA activist (to be fair, not Strom) pontificating back in ~2001 that “I don’t understand why White people have bank accounts or go to college, don’t they know that it is 100% certain that the entire System will collapse within five years?”  

How did that work out?  If Der Movement continues to be a tragicomic clownshow, then they should not wonder when the tin cup remains empty and disillusioned followers drift away.

Dissecting the Fundamentals, Part I


Another look at “the fundamentals.”

Pan-Europeanism as the major focus will replace other more narrow “isms” – be they national, ethnic, subracial, etc.  The narrower “isms” will not disappear, they can continue to exist, but at a lower level than the overarching pan-European unity.  The two fratricidal world wars of the 20th century wrecked Europe, the West, and the White race, and those who continue to promote division even now, are, whether they know it or not, working for the enemy, working for the Death of Europe and for the destruction of the worldwide fraternity of the European Peoples.  Therefore, all those who preach division within the European family – be that division genetic, phenotype, cultural, historical, religious – are the enemies of European Man and enemies of the West and enemies of our Identity and our Future.

Pan-Europeanism is the First Principle, the non-negotiable, the underlying thesis, the Idea of Yockey (opposed by those ethnonationalists who make pretense of being some sort of Yockey acolytes, presumably for fundraising purposes), the organic evolution of the West. Now, as Yockey stated, and I certainly agree (as does Lowell and others), narrower forms of Identity can and will exist within the context of pan-Europeanism, but these will be local and secondary.  The European, the Western (in the broadest sense, not equivalent to the modern decadent West nor even to the current Faustian High Culture, which we must overcome and supersede, as it is dying, if not already dead) Identity must be primary and existential.

Let’s quote Yockey here:

Our European Mission is to create the Culture-State-Nation-Imperium of the West, and thereby we shall perform such deeds, accomplish such works, and so transform our world that our distant posterity, when they behold the remains of our buildings and ramparts, will tell their grandchildren that on the soil of Europe once dwelt a tribe of gods.

That’s what is important, that’s the inspiring vision for the future, not a dismal future of squabbling ethnonationalists ready to “ethnically cleanse” each other over disagreements about “sovereignty.”

Now, I must stress: to a large extent this Yockeyian vision is for elites.  Nietzsche was willing to grant the masses their Christianity, their religion of resssentiment, if they so required, but the elites, the Overmen must eschew such childish crutches.  Similarly, the masses can have their ethnonationalism for the time being, as they are slowly weaned off of it; better ethnonationalism than globalist universalism.  But the nationalist elites have to be true acolytes of the pan-European Ideal, and eventually lead the masses in the correct direction as those masses become improved and enlightened over time.

Genetic kinship will replace racial “purity.”  As per Salter, ultimate interests are genetic interests, and genetic interests are based upon genetic kinship.  Only genetic kinship is relevant for biopolitics.  This contrasts to the unscientific strawman of racial “purity” which is usually derived from some a priori comparison to a picked parental population.  Since all genetic differences, regardless of their derivation (e.g., “admixture” [real or an artifact], selective pressures, genetic drift, etc.) influence genetic kinship, measurement of such kinship is the most inclusive and definitive approach for understanding our ultimate interests.  We accept the European genepool for what it is now and strive to improve it in the future.  To use Yockey’s terminology in a new way, we completely replace outdated and unscientific “vertical” concerns with “purity/admixture” with “horizontal” concerns with genetic kinship and genetic interests.

The “movement” will resist this, no doubt.  Some precincts of the “movement” play lip service to this idea, but as always look at that they do more than what they say.  Look what posts they present, what authors they promote, what memes they spread, what their commentators are saying – it doesn’t match their ostensible “position” on this matter.  Remember Horace: “You may drive out Nature with a pitchfork, yet she still will hurry back.”  Unscientific fetishistic fantasies will collapse under the edifying light of science, the reality of facts, and no “movement” flim-flam and sweaty fossilized dogma will stand up to truth in the long term.

How to fuse these horizontal concerns with genetic interests with Yockey’s vision, which was flawed by its blithe dismissal of “materialistic” race concepts?  See this.

Total biocultural Identity will replace as narrower biological and cultural identities as the major focus of European Being.  The narrower identities will still exist, but as part of Identity, and the narrower identities will become increasingly aligned with that of Identity.  Biological and cultural classifications by themselves are not disjunctive, only total Identity is disjunctive. The ultimate solution to any discordance between Identity and biological identities is this: we will align our biological/genetic interests with Identity by closing the borders and stopping non-European gene flow into European territories.  Thus, over time the genetic boundaries between Europe and the Others will become ever larger and more distinct; the genetic commonalities between Europeans, compared to the Others, will become larger and more integrated.  The same applies to any potential cultural overlaps between The West and The Rest.  Examples of this possibility, as exemplified by the Levant and by China, are shown here.

This is an important point, and an answer to sweaty fetishists using minute difference in Fst values – ignoring that Fst is a flawed metric for measuring genetic differentiation – to make asinine comments about negligible levels of relative ethnic genetic distances.

Biopolitics will replace the old fraud of Right vs. Left.  We care not if any specific policy of ours, or our entire program, is deemed “rightist” or “leftist” or whatever outdated label.  We are not conservatives, reactionaries, not in any way beholden to “right-wing” thought.  We are revolutionaries, striving to create a new order.

This should be self-evident.  We are not conservatives, reactionaries, or traditionalists.  We look to the future, not to the dead past.  This leads to:

Futurism, not Traditionalism.  Unlike some of the more reckless statements in support of Futurism, we do not call for the abolition of museums, the disregarding of our past and the great deeds of our ancestors.  Past, Present, and Future are all linked.  However, we look to the Future, our real Golden Age is that which we will make in the Future, it is not some sort of delusional Traditionalist fantasy set in the Past.  We will not reject the deeds of our ancestors, but these are not the sum of our being, we do not settle for them – we must surpass them.  We remember the Past, but for the purpose of spurring us to achieve greater deeds in the Future. 

One of the most unpleasant aspects of the “movement” is its obsession with gnostic esoteric “traditionalism” and with a Lord of the Rings style romanticization of feudal values.

Rational realism and empiricism is for facts, values and objectives can be irrational.  Thus, we reject the old, timeworn, factually incorrect knee-jerk beliefs, memes, and paradigms that have defined to so-called “racialist movement,” particularly in America.  With respect to facts, history, knowledge – the age of “movement” dogma is over.  We reject the misanthropic freakishness and lies of the old movement.  With respect to facts, we depend on rationality, on realism, on empiricism – on real Science.  But these things cannot provide us with our values and our objectives – they are merely tools.  Our values and objectives can be irrational as they spring forth from our vision of the reality we want to come into being.  But we cannot confuse what we want with what actually is – nor can be settle for what is instead of what we actually want.  What is – that is the current reality, which must be discerned with empiricism.  What we want is derived from our values, irrational as they may (or may not) be, and for these objectives, empiricism is only a tool, a means, not an end to itself.  As part of this, the fantasies of Traditionalism – which invents false facts – must be put aside in favor of empirical facts and the irrational objectives of an enlightened Futurism.

This gets to the core – one core at least – of my criticism of the “movement,” and why “movement” “leaders” have made me persona non grata in their circles.  My message is blasphemy and, what’s more, gets in the way of “business as usual,” and the concomitant tin cup panhandling that is facilitated by giving “movement” “activists” the dogmatic “red meat” they crave.  The “movement” wants to continue dwelling in its little cul-de-sac of crazed religious fervor with its fossilized memes; but this is an dead end, a recipe for failure, and anyone who actually wants to win, and actualize their ideology into reality needs to understand – truly understand – what that reality is all about.

Preservationism plus eugenics replaces static preservationism.  We are not interested in preserving a racial stasis…We wish to promote eugenics to improve the stock and, also, allow for the creation of new stabilized blends of European stocks – while also at the same type preserving the original stocks – to increase the diversity of European Man. Ethnic genetic interests are compatible with (gradual) genetic change within the race…

There are a number of important points here, all of which focus on a forward-looking, palingenetic view of race (i.e., futurism, not traditionalism).  Contra to misinformed complaints that a concern for EGI leads to “genetic stasis,” here we see an overt call for eugenics (albeit a prudent form of eugenics that seeks to avoid both unnecessary loses of genetic interest and unforeseen negative consequences to designating traits – and the alleles that code for them – as worthy of replacement or increase without understanding possible consequences of such changes), and the call for “the creation of new stabilized blends of European stocks…increase the diversity of European Man.”  As long as original stocks are maintained, there’s nothing wrong with creating new variants of European man, in diaspora regions such as America.  When such crossing create excellent new strains, such can be cultivated as new ethnies to be preserved and improved; if negative strains (however defined) are produced, they can be selected against.  The creation and selection of new dog breeds can be a model for this process. Gradual genetic change that eschews mixing across continental population groups (broadly: races) and that preserves the vast bulk of genetic interests is a natural part of the lifecycle of evolved organisms, is part and parcel of genetic interests, and is wholly compatible with a prudent and well-informed eugenic scheme.

The Strategic Objective

Nietzsche’s child rather than lion (or camel) – a constructive thesis.

Let’s first consider two points that form the foundation of the thesis of this post.

Point 1. A primary objective of terrorism and guerrilla warfare is to provoke repressive measures from the government, which will negatively affect the population, alienating and radicalizing that population, and turning them against the government.

This is generally true, and as I recall was favorably mentioned by Pierce in The Turner Diaries.

Note that while this statement derives from historical examples of political violence, it can also apply to memetic “terrorism” and “warfare” as well.  Thus, discussion of Point 1 does not in any way imply advocacy of actual physical terrorism or guerrilla warfare (which are, by the way, primarily performed by the political Left), but instead illustrates the point – the historically demonstrated fact – that provoking a government to repress its people typically generates hatred of the people toward that government, to the benefit of the adversaries of that government.

Point 2. Revolutions typically do not take place during the time of the greatest repression, but rather occur when that repression is suddenly relaxed.

This point (previously mentioned at this blog) is also generally true.  Note that the System either consciously or unconsciously recognizes this to be so, since its reaction to Trumpism and the brief rise of the Alt Right has been to viciously double down on the repression and on its anti-White narrative. They have absolutely rejected the path of concessions and reconciliation.

Obviously, Points 1 and 2 are not fully compatible with each other, which allows a prudent strategy of provocation to present to the System a dilemma manifested by a choice between two unpleasant, and ultimately destructive, alternatives.

If the System responds to Far Right provocations with increasing repression – and it is fundamentally important that the repression must be distributed among at least a sizable fraction of the White population and not just tightly targeted to the Far Right – then it will alienate and radicalize that portion of the population (Whites) on which the System’s own effective function, and its overall long-term viability, depends.  The System will lose moral authority as it props itself up by using the same terror it purports to fight.  

With the loss of moral authority comes more resistance, and while Revolution per se may not occur during this period of great repression, the loss of moral authority, and the cycle of repression, hatred, resistance, and more repression cannot go on forever. Eventually a breaking point will be reached in which the System can no longer be tenable while repressing and attacking the very population necessary for ensuring the System’s efficient maintenance; the System will either break down and collapse under the weight of what is essentially a runaway, and ultimately fatal, autoimmune reaction (i.e., attacking its own body after being exposed to an antigen), or it will be forced to attempt to salvage the situation by making concessions, leading us to Point 2. 

On the other hand, if the System wants to avoid the scenario of Point 1, sensing that if it pushes Whites too far and too fast it will eventually lose everything, or if tries repression and it fails, and it starts making concessions (relaxing the repression, Point 2), then the System loses moral authority by looking weak, tacitly admitting that its Far Right adversary has legitimacy, and admitting that White interests and White opposition to the System are at least partially valid.  This will lead to a “snowball” effect as increasing concessions lead to increasing legitimacy for White demands and thus further concessions, undermining the System’s whole raison d’etre of anti-Whiteness.  

As long as the Far Right is prudent enough to keep up the pressure, keep up the demands, keep up the provocations, keep up the memetic war, keep on “heightening the contradictions,” then the loss of moral authority for the System will become irreversible and lead to the loss of political, economic, and social authority as well.  Keep in mind that Coloreds, with their sense of entitlement and hatred of Whites, will see any concessions to White interests as a betrayal by the System (which they see, all grievance rhetoric aside, as THEIR System), further weakening the System’s moral authority, and making the System have to choose between placating sets of incompatible tribal interests. The endpoint is collapse, perhaps from different mechanisms as the collapse of Point 1, but collapse nevertheless.

The System would try to solve this dilemma by doing what it is doing now – attempting to specifically target repression to a relatively small subset of Whites, including the Far Right itself, while slowing down White dispossession enough so as to “boil the frog slowly.”  More recently, with the hysterical reaction to Trumpism, this strategy is starting to fray, and repression is more and more leaking out to the general White population.  In a very real sense, that general repression has always been with us – forced integration, affirmative action, racial double standards, mass immigration, political correctness, social pricing, hate crimes laws, hate speech laws in Europe, etc. – but it is becoming more obvious now.  This demonstrates the validity of this post’s general thesis – if something as mild as Trumpism, and as inept as the Alt Right, could provoke the System as much as it has, and “dropped the mask” to the general White population, what would a serious and strategic strategy of (memetic) Far Right provocation achieve?  Thus, any movement would need to create conditions so that backlash against it would affect Whites outside of that movement, so as to put “in play” the various processes outlined in this post. For example, serious and authentic community activism and political engagement would create ties between the Far Right and the broader White population, so that repression targeted at the former would be necessity negatively affect the latter.  Of course, we need intelligent, disciplined, and rational Type II activists to plan these strategies; Type I activists have demonstrated, time and again, their inability to effectively manage (or even attempt) these approaches.

Before we conclude with an outline of things to do, let us briefly consider: how could an alternative System – for example, a racial nationalist System – avoid being placed in the sort of dilemma outlined here?  Simple: by representing the interests of the people, by supporting majority rights rather than that of minorities, by making Whites into authentic stakeholders in the System and its well-being.  Whites have long since stopped being authentic stakeholders in the current System, in any real sense, long ago.

What to do? The following have been discussed at this blog in detail previously, but briefly we can summarize:

1. Build a legionary cadre.  No defectives, no Alt Right lulzers, no obsessives and fetishists, no zombies mindlessly parroting “movement” dogma, but hardcore, “vanguardist” political soldiers, truly vetted (extremely!) and put through years of long apprenticeship, a genuine movement akin to that of Codreanu, a pan-European Brotherhood that will form the core of the undermining of the old System and the creation of a new one.  And guess what?  This is not talked about in “interviews” with the media, it is not recruited online in sniggering “forums,” it is instead done privately and prudently, slowly, carefully, and with forethought.  Obviously, the existence of such an organization would not be a secret, just as the existence of the CIA, MI6, KGB, and GRU were not secrets, but the inner workings of the group, by analogy to those others, would of course be hidden from the public.  

2. Community activism.  Real community activism is done, not talked about.  It is done as much as possible “under the radar.”  You do not broadcast it to mocking media operatives, you don’t go through the motions for the sake of a quick blog post, this is not something done overnight.  True community activism is for the long-term, it is a work of years, it is done to help the community, not with an attitude of expecting an immediate compensation – the idea of compensation should not come into it at all. Of course, community activism by its nature cannot be kept secret; the point is that such activism is its own publicity – in other words, it becomes known because it occurs and it is effective, it is its own advertisement, it doesn’t become known because activists spend more time talking to the media than they do actually helping people.

3. Metapolitics and infrastructure. Metapolitics has been discussed endlessly by the Far Right, and so there is no need to repeat all of that here. Such activity is essential, as long as it is fresh, creative, and open-minded, and not merely the regurgitation of fossilized “movement” dogma.  We need real infrastructure to carry out our objectives, approaches to defeat social pricing, funding that goes beyond tin cup panhandling but actual involves earning money through some sort of productivity, service, and/or representation, we need lawyers (and not to drive them out of the “movement”), we need businessmen, doctors, academics, plumbers, mechanics, schoolteachers, politicians, we need a recreated and actualized society. By the way, metapolitics should include Salter’s democratic multiculturalism, which overlaps with both community activism and electoral politics.

4. Electoral politics. This has three purposes.  First, education, propaganda, and recruitment.  Second, provocation, heightening the contradictions, undermining the System, promoting chaos and balkanization.  Third, if elected, these people can not only leverage their office for the preceding two purposes, but also to protect the movement as much as possible,

5. Rallies, etc. – false-flag and genuine. False-flag rallies are meant as a distraction, to focus attention of adversaries to the open and superficial “cosplay actors on the street” as opposed to the more serious work going on elsewhere.  It would still need to be credible, to be viewed as a genuine threat and so worthy of attention, and also so as not to repulse Whites interested in joining the cause.  Later on, with the success of the other objectives 1-4 above, rallies and mass meetings, of a highly professional nature (even more so that the false-flag ones), can occur for all the positives such events can genuinely provide to a real and growing firmly established movement.

Camel, Lion, Child Redux

Nietzsche’s three metamorphoses.

I believe I already wrote about this, but for the benefit of new readers (and for cognitively deficient Type I established readers) I will repeat this concept, and its relevance to what the long-term objectives here are.

Read Zarathustra.

A reasonable explanation.

These are a metaphor for the three stages men have to go through, in their path towards moral self-sufficiency.The camel is a “beast of burden”, that is, it carries a weight someone else has put on it. When the person is the “camel”, they don’t follow their own moral judgement, but have instead a set of external rules they’ve been told are right. “Thou shalt” and the dragon refer to the Ten Commandments and the Church.

Someone becomes the lion when they realise those rules they’ve been taught through their lives aren’t necessarily immutable truths. The lion looks at the conventions and morals he thought were the only possibility and tears them apart. “There is no Good, there is no Evil”… This is that “sacred no”; the realisation that these are man-made concepts and the choice to reject them.
However, the lion can only destroy, it’s just an act of nihilism. After the lion has done away with those morals imposed from outside, the child will be the one creating new values. Not out of duty to an external force or out of rebellion against it, but for itself. The child is pure creativity. That is his “sacred yes” to life.

The camel accepts established dogma and bears the burden of working within a constrained tradition. The lion rebels against that dogma and tradition, realizing that there is no reason to accept those dogmas and traditions as “immutable truths.”  The lion deconstructs, rejects, destroys.  Finally, the child enters the scene and creates new values, new traditions – “pure creativity.”  Over time, this process can repeat itself, if necessary.  The child’s creation may fossilize into a dogma, burdening camels, and leading to lions.

So, I spent many years as a “movement” camel, accepting dogma and following flawed “leaders.”  Much of the work of EGI Notes is the lion phase – what fossilized Type I activists call my “crazed bitterness” – deconstructing, rejecting, and opposing the “movement,” with the objective of destroying the Old Movement, to make way for the New.  And, finally, some of my work at both EGI Notes and Western Destiny is the child creative phase – creating a New Movement based on a fresh set of values – the Fundamentals.

The Nazi Next Time, II

Further analysis.

Let’s take another look at my The Nazi Next Time essay from 2015.  How does all of that look now from the perspective of Trump’s election and all the events from the year (and more) since that election?

Before we look back at the main points of that “Nazi” essay, let us consider that now, approximately two years later, certain elements of the System Left are beginning to reach similar conclusions.  Read this Frank Rich piece.

However common the ground of Democrats and Trumpists when it comes to economic populism, they will still be separated by the Trumpists’ adamant nativism, nationalism, and racism. The liberal elites who continue to argue that Democrats can win by meeting Trump voters halfway don’t seem to realize that those intransigent voters have long been hardwired to despise them.

The pot calling the kettle black?  Who despises who?  It was the Democratic Party’s abandonment of the White working class, in favor of Colored Identity Politics, which set the stage for right-wing populism to begin with.  Working class and middle class White Americans rightly perceive that the Democrats despise them, so why not return the favor?

Looking to the future in his 60 Minutes White House exit interview, Bannon said, “The only question before us” is whether it “is going to be a left-wing populism or a right-wing populism.” And that is the question, he added, “that will be answered in 2020.” Give the devil his due: He does have the question right. But there is every reason to fear that our unending civil war will not be resolved by any election anytime soon in the destabilized America that Trump will leave behind.

But the long-term threat is bigger than the potential arrival in the Capitol of radicals like Moore or the conspiracy theorist Kelli Ward, a possible inheritor of Flake’s Arizona seat. By illuminating a pathway to power that no one had thought possible, and demolishing the civic guardrails that we assumed protected us from autocrats, Trump has paved the way for far slicker opportunists to gain access to the national stage. Imagine a presidential candidate with Trump’s views and ambitions who does not arrive with Trump’s personal baggage, his undisciplined penchant for self-incrimination, and his unsurpassed vulgarity. 

Yes, I can imagine it: that’s why I wrote the “Nazi” essay; the vision was clear in my mind…and still is.

Finer-tooled instruments — smarter and shrewder demagogues than the movement’s current titular head — may already be suiting up in the wings.

Oh, we can only hope.  I do believe eventually, we’ll see that.

In any case: Sallis was prescient once again.

Now, back to the 2015 Sallis piece.

The hysterical angst of the Republican Establishment concerning the rise of Trump is glorious to observe.  Of course, the interesting thing is their complete lack of self-awareness, their lack of understanding that they themselves are responsible for the predicament they find themselves in.

I was I believe too kind to the GOP then.  Or, perhaps, I realize now that the Republicans don’t care about winning; they only care about being part of the System’s anti-White agenda.  Trumpism in the 2016 election gave the GOP sweeping victories at every level, leaving the Democratic Party in complete disarray.  2016 was a stunning confirmation that right-wing populism is the path for continued Republican electoral dominance even in the face of the changing demographics that the GOP itself has been complicit in promoting.  Trumpism can build a solid White voting bloc, with strengths among demographics (working class Whites, White ethnics) who were part of the Reagan coalition, but who have been straying from the GOP after decades of Neocon-corporate-cuckservatism, as exemplified by the Bush family, “plastic man” Romney, and execrable filth like John McCain (and the pink-frilled Lindsey Graham).  And how has the GOP reacted to this good fortune?  By doubling down on their anti-Trumpism, by obstructing what little the Grand Cuck Trump (this revealed after the election) wants to accomplish in a positive sense, by joining in with the absurd moral panic over “Russian interference,” by cucking to an extreme degree, by doing everything possible to throw away the fruits of the 2-16 electoral sweep an alienate and discourage Trump’s base.  So, now, I believe that they have awareness and understanding – it’s just that they are part of the same corruption, and always have been.  It’s always been a fraud, a scam, a con game run on the White American voter.  The GOP really isn’t in any predicament at all; they are simply playing the role assigned to them, playing it with relish.

Of course, all else being equal. The GOP would prefer to win elections, as they would like to enjoy the power and perks of elected office.  They also want to convince the rubes of the viability of the “two party system” and they want to keep the political donations and campaign contributions flowing in.  But winning is not an existential issue for them, but being anti-White is. If given a choice between winning with an explicitly pro-White agenda and losing as pandering cucks, they’d pick the latter every time. When the choice is put into those stark terms, the real Republican agenda comes into sharp focus.

Consider: after the startling electoral success of 2016, GOP cucks still pretend that association with right-wing populism will somehow damage the party – they will be ‘”toast.”

Still think they really want to win?

One reason is that the GOP has been complicit in the demographic changes that have put them “in between a rock and a hard place,” politically speaking. On the one hand, Republicans look at America’s growing colored population and see the need to appeal to that demographic. On the other hand, the GOP base of support is conservative White Americans, particularly right-of-center White men.  To pander to minorities runs the risk of alienating the base; to secure the base runs the risk of alienating the coloreds. Up to this point, the GOP strategy has been to pander to the colored minorities, while throwing “bones” to the base in the form of phony “implicit Whiteness” and “dog whistling” rhetoric with no real-life political consequences. Heretofore, the GOP has mastered feinting right during the primaries, running centrist in the general election, and, in the rare cases of GOP Presidential victories (since Ronnie Raygun, we have had only the two failed Bush men being elected), governing from the left. Base anger has been silenced by “they have nowhere else to go” “lesser of two evils” electoral considerations.

But now, the rise of Trump is an ill wind blowing in the direction of the GOP elites: the base is starting to awaken and will not be forever willing to “vote for lesser of two evils” and support anti-White leftist Republican candidates.

Whatever else Trump is or does, this alone justifies supporting his 2016 campaign, which I did.  Even if he is a completely self-interested phony, his reliance on right-wing populism “let the toothpaste out of the tube” and the System, however it may try, cannot get it all back in again, long-term.  They may win some battles here or there, tactical successes, but the tides of war will go against them.  By this, I mean the war to make multiculturalism work smoothly, and have White blithely accept their own dispossession.  The System may still win in the end, but their victory will be a Pyrrhic one, a bloody mess that will leave a nation essentially ungovernable long term as any major power on the world scene.  They may suppress right-wing populism short-term (and likely, not even that), but, like a bed penny, it’ll keep on popping up again.  Trump is a catalyst, a “John the Baptist” foreshadowing things to come.

But there is something else. The problem with Trump is seemingly not only his ideology of right-wing populism (real or fake), it is also because the Republican Establishment – with some justification – see Trump as an ill-informed, vulgar, obnoxious, childish buffoon, with no self-control and an embarrassing lack of gravitas.  Very well, but in response to those concerns I have two words: Pat Buchanan.

Like Trump, Buchanan ran for President as a right-wing populist Republican. In fact, there is considerable overlap in overt ideology between the two men’s campaigns. While lacking Trump’s “alpha jerk-boy” charisma, Buchanan has certain advantages that you would think would endear him to the GOP elites: Buchanan is a well-informed, articulate, religious man, with strong Establishment connections, and prior political experience in previous Republican administrations. Buchanan has always been an “inside-the-Beltway” man, and is not an obnoxious buffoon.

And how did the GOP elites deal with the more polished and political Buchanan?  With the same disdain and hysteria that they now reserve for “Der Trumpening.”  The Elite made it clear that they would never accept Buchanan as the nominee, they panicked over his early successes, they sabotaged his campaign (as I recall, they even prevented him from being on the ballot in some states), etc.  So, the case of Buchanan proves that the problem with Trump is not so much his repellent personal aspects, but his core of right-wing populism. Anything that appeals to Whites is anathema to the GOP, which is of course self-destructive given the nature of the GOP base (it is not for nothing that Sam Francis labeled the GOP “the Stupid Party”).

As stated above, the GOP would rather lose as anti-Whites than win as pro-White.  It’s a well-established trend dating back decades.

The point is that the GOP lost anyway with Bush and Dole in 1992 and 1996. While it is understandable that the incumbent would be favored in 1992, there was no excuse for favoring the “living mummy” “civil rights Republican” Dole over Buchanan in 1996. Favoring Buchanan would have solidified the GOP base and could have put the party in the direction of a right-wing populist track that could have genuinely benefited White Americans.

That is anathema to Establishment Republicans.

But, no. The elites sabotaged Buchanan and they suppressed right-wing populism for several electoral cycles. Now it has erupted in a more “virulent” form with Donald Trump. Instead of learning their lesson and understanding that the base cannot be taken for granted, instead of understanding that they need candidates that appeal to the base, the GOP elites are hell-bent on sabotaging Trump and suppressing right-wing populism for another couple of electoral cycles.

They may succeed but they are playing with fire.

They couldn’t stop Trump from winning, but they are fairly successful in teaming up with Democrats to block Trump’s ostensible agenda. Here, they are getting help from Trump himself, who betrays his base at every opportunity.  xxThere are some who say that there is evidence that Trump is sincere in his right-wing populism: he gave up his easy billionaire lifestyle to run for President. But that in and of itself means nothing.  It ignores issues of ego and the lust for (political) power. By analogy, we can ask why billionaires all don’t just ease up and enjoy the “good life,” why do most of them continue to strive, “wheel and deal,” obsess over money, and engage in rent-seeking behavior, including political lobbying, designed to further increase their wealth and power?  That’s the nature of the rich and powerful: they are never satisfied; they always want more (and that is one reason that they become rich and powerful to begin with).  If such people are given the opportunity to go into the history books as US President, would they eschew that opportunity?  Trump’s Presidential ambitions tell us nothing about his sincerity.  The fact that Trump ran as a right-wing populist may reflect his real views, or it may simply reflect his realization that the only way he could stand out from the established field of GOP cucks was to give the base the “red meat” that they were craving.  If Trump is really the shrewd businessman his admirers says he is, then he must have noticed the open political niche space to the political right of the GOP candidate field.  Trump’s sincerity would be better displayed by an honest and consistent effort on his part to fulfill his campaign promises.  That he is not doing; instead we get jackass tweeting, half-heated measures, backpedaling, a disgraceful waste of political capital, and waffling on issues like DACA.  If there is sincerity there, it is awfully hard to see.

Who will come after Trump?  Who will be the next right-wing populist?  As even worthless and weak Whites become more aggressive out of sheer desperation, who will they turn to next?  Someone more extreme and firebrand-populist compared to Trump to the same degree Trump is compared to Buchanan? 

It won’t be “the fire next time,” but it may well be “the Nazi next time.”  The GOP elites had better hope that their country clubs are well fortified indeed.

Will Trump’s constant betrayals and failures discourage his base?  Or, as Rich suggests, whatever the outcome of Trump, the base will only become more energized?  The latter, we hope.  But we must realize that the trauma of Trump has immunized the System against the “virus” of right-wing populism; they’ll be on their guard against it, and will try and nip any further manifestations in the bud.  Where they will fail, I believe, is that the System is, at its heart, anti-White; they cannot muster up any real “red meat” to satisfy a growing sense of White Identity Politics that will become ever more resistant to Democratic attempts to divert race with economics or GOP attempts at implicitly White “culture war” dog whistling.  The toothpaste is out of the tune, so to speak.

But, the System may not be able to win over the Trump base, but they’ll use their power to sabotage future political manifestations of right-wing populism.

In the movie The Day of the Jackal, the Jackal tells the OAS leaders: “Not only have your own efforts failed, but you’ve rather queered the pitch for everyone else.”  One can say that about Trump perhaps (and about the “movement” more generally, certainly).

Now, right-wing populism, essentially civic nationalism, is not the answer.  It is best a precursor or at least a stop gap, and at worst a diversion, a cul-de-sac, a competitor to what is needed – which is explicitly prop-White racial nationalism – White nationalism.  At this point in time, we can work to ensure that right-wing populism serves positive functions, as a precursor to White nationalism (the membrane separating the two is thin; it is one step from civic nationalism to racial nationalism, but an big step many do not make), or at least as a stop gap as racial nationalism begins to develop (Trump is in a sense a stop gap; one other benefit of his election, besides all “breaking the ice” for more extreme politics and increasing balkanization an chaos, is that he prevented a Clinton election that could have led to more repressive conditions for the development of racial nationalism – worse is not always better).

I would suggest that at this point, right-wing populism is best suited for Presidential campaigns and also for Senate and Governor races, and for lower level races in areas in which the White population is not sufficiently “prepared” for more radical approaches.  However, in selected areas and selected times, we should begin to consider explicitly White candidates – even racial nationalist WNs – ranging from school board elections all the way up to the US House of Representatives. Some successes there can lead to consideration of WNs for the higher level races.  The value of political WN campaigns exists regardless of the electoral outcome: promoting balkanization, recruiting, propaganda, organization, normalization of racial nationalist discourse and “pushing the envelope,” forcing the civic nationalists to get off the fence in one direction or another, a whole host of advantages.

Political campaigns would benefit from effective local organizing and vice versa.  It’s been said, and I believe it to be true, than in some locales, WNs love near each other but do not know of each other’s existence. Even if some fraction of these are kooks, freaks, defectives, Nutzis, fetishists, etc. there may still be a critical mass of useful like-minded people in certain areas.  The trick is to get them together, to work together, and to organize, safely, without the threat of infiltrators exposing them all.  How to do it is uncertain.  Existing meetings with their “extreme vetting” are ludicrous jokes; real extreme vetting would help, but I’m not sure that Der Movement has the competence or discipline to pull it off.  Anyone who is able to put together an effective plan for local organizing is going to be at an enormous advantage.  In the competition for racial nationalist leadership, those who can perform effectively will rise, and those who are laughably inept will fall.  

WNs cannot depend on a “man on white horse” civic cuck “hero” to save them.  The Nazi Next Time is not going to descend from Valhalla, complete with blessings of Saint Adolf; instead, the “demagogues” of the future will come to the fore as a result of hard work, discipline, and commitment.

This will, I believe, likely require a New Movement that replaces the clown show that currently exists.  I’m not sanguine about that, but this blog will continue to play the role of “loyal opposition.”  Racial nationalism is the future, but that future will only become actualized if we make it so.  

Future installments of this topic will be forthcoming when events and new ideas warrant; note as well there is overlap with the concept of Political EGI, as any pro-White leader who is worthwhile must incorporate (even if indirectly) the concept of genetic interests into their memetic toolkit.
