Leave the Type I Luddites in their hobbit holes while real men grasp the future. In all cases, emphasis added.
Full of dumb assumptions, underestimation of technological advances, complete misunderstanding of nuclear power, etc. No, you see, let’s not dream big and got to the stars. Instead, let’s be snug in our hobbit holes in the forest, reading Tolkien, and letting the Chinese run the world.
As a commentator wisely wrote:
We are stuck with technology. Let’s assume that Whites regained full control over Europe, North America, and New Zealand tomorrow, and then settled on some sort of low-tech, ultra-traditional, Amish-style existence. How long do you think it would be before some non-White, high-tech race, most likely the Chinese, kicked in the door?
Both nuclear and hydro actually produce large net gains in energy after construction and maintenance, after the input of both parts and services that partially derive from fossil fuels. Replacing internal combustion engines with some sort of electric motor and battery storage (solid state, lithium ion, sodium ion) is not far fetched at the moment, we are clearly moving in that direction. As more gasoline powered transportation and construction equipment is replaced with those which are battery powered the amount left of hydrocarbons left for plastics, planes and ship transportation become much larger. These changes would eliminate conservatively 70% of crude oil use. Nuclear and hydro grid energy would power electric construction equipment and heavy industry producing most goods needed by civilization. Oil will still be required but in much smaller amounts which could be sourced from ethanol after we run economical oil some time in the future. Prior to WW2, across Europe doom was predicted when the interdependent and very complex industrial economies were destined too be bombed from the air in the next war. Civilization was predicted to crash, production to slow down to a crawl; instead industrial civilization proved more resilient in the face of shortages of key goods and bombing than ever imagined.
Space exploration and colonization will not be impossible due to their high fossil fuel costs, in comparison with a billion automobiles this is amount is very small even if you launched many large objects into orbit. One great reason to fight for our race is to help realize a future where dreams about space exploration are made a reality. One of the defining characteristics of our civilization is striving towards infinity, which only the white ethnostate will enable us to do. Not just in space exploration but in vast networks of highspeed trains, more efficient forms of nuclear power, great construction projects, creating great cities both livable, traditional and monumental, furthering genetic technology, and rewilding large parts of the continent. This seems much more inspiring to me than we are all going to die due to some club of Rome predictions. Futurism inspires action today to enable a more glorious future tomorrow. Our movement is full of the negative aspects of what awaits us if we do not act, like Frodo gazing into the mirror, which is obviously necessary redpill people. But, crime statistics and horror stories are not the only way to inspire comrades. A positive and glorious vision of the future, like Faye’s archeofuturism, can also provide a novel way to inspire members to action. Hitler and the NSDAP party did not just show the negative aspect of the Weimar republic in their propaganda, but they showed what a Germany with a reinvigorated spirit could accomplish, futurism. Men of action can utilize both the carrot of futurism and the stick of “the future that may come to pass” to help propel the movement.
If mankind ever attempts to cross the interstellar void, “fossil fuels” will not make the journey with him. That assertion is breathtakingly naive. By the time such a leap is attempted, we will have overcome the technical obstacles of fusion power, by which, at the very least, such an interstellar ship would be powered. Aboard that future ship will be fusion-reactors capable of powering a future colony on another world, and not a single drop of “fossil fuels” will be necessary. The very act of mentioning that such would be “necessary” indicates one has not investigated this subject much, if at all, or the solid pathways toward realizing a star colony in the future.
For a moment, contemplate what one of the most powerful intellects of their time said about the likelihood of the Wright brothers airplane: “Lord Kelvin, the President of the Royal Society of England made a forceful declaration: “Heavier than air flying machines are impossible.” Impossible, said this great man of science. Impossible. Let that sink in, before we so easily blow off the likelihood of colonizing other worlds.
Consider that in the year 1902, both Lord Kelvin and much of the scientific world, along with much of the general masses of people, thought that heavier than air flying machines were “impossible”. Then, one year later, in 1903, the world’s great scientific minds saw that it was indeed “possible”. And within the lifetimes of many of those who witnessed that historic breakthrough, 400 mph jet travel was achieved in 1939, a mere 36 years later. From “heavier than air flight is impossible” to jet travel in three and half decades. The lesson in that is that what is considered “impossible” now could be proven otherwise in the course of one lifetime. Fusion power has not been achieved yet, but any year now some brilliant researcher could find the long sought breakthrough. And from fusion power will come virtually unlimited power for the equivalent cost of a few cents a day. And from THAT will come, in time, spacecraft engines sans “fossil fuels” propellant, and mankind will begin to have the tools ready to seek new homes beyond this solar system.
Now, I suspect that the pessimism toward this very possible future is that many alive to today may not live to see the beginnings of it. To glean the emotional equivalent, imagine the 75 year old man on his deathbed in the year 1902, or another 75 year man in similar circumstances in the year 1968 – both so close to living to see heavier than air flight or Man reaching the moon, yet….not quite. What the future holds may bring terror or great promise, but the reality is that many of us may or may not live to see such astonishing – but very possible – breakthroughs. Therefore, we may tend to write them off as credible possibilities. And down that road lies nothing but bleak acceptance that we should give up on the brilliant capabilities of the White Race, and the record he has demonstrated, time and again, of his greatness.
Reality: The only real impediments to nuclear (fission) power are political and racial-cultural-economic, not technical:
Political – It is opposed to all sorts of regressive forces: Leftists. Greens, and Type 1 morons and cowards, who want Whites living in the forests, snug in their hobbit holes, while the Chinese lord it over the Earth
Racial-Cultural-Economic – only technically competent races and cultures (Europeans and East Asians – although, hey, Fukushima Orientals, don’t build reactors in earthquake and tsunami zones) can safely use such power, and only certain types of societies as well. For example, unrestrained capitalism gives us Three Mile Island, communism gives us Chernobyl. France has been doing well, but once France turns Brown, forget about it.
Reality: The future of solar is not “diffuse” solar panels on hipster restaurants, but space-based solar; there have already been successful experiments with microwave power beaming (militarization possibilities make Archimedes’ mind boggle). Note: The hipsters and Greens would be turned off to solar power if they understood what the sun really is. It’s dat dere nucleasr fusion and quantum tunneling and all of dat! Not like, um, natural….
Reality: Western societies dedicated to technical progress, instead of what MPC calls the “Spin-Nig cycle,” would have solved the fusion problem already; as it is, progress is being made.
Reality: There are other potential power sources, and let’s not forget that at one time “informed opinion” told us that “deriving useful power from nuclear radiation/fission processes is impossible.” Yeah, sure it is. Impossible.
Reality: If we listen to the Tolkien fetishists, we’ll abdicate the modern world to the Yellow Race, and become nothing but living fossils, observed in our hobbit holes by contemptuous, grinning Oriental tourists. That’s why the Type Is are best suited to being bully boys, and should let others do all the hard thinking.
Final sarcastic word from commentators:
Yep. Abandoning space to LARP as iron age peasant farmers is definitely the way to safeguard the ethnostate.
Hey, no worries! We’ll just adopt Silk Road White nationalism, and let Chinese girls with guns guard the borders of the West. Think of all the masochistic thrills the Iron Age peasant farmers will get while holed up in their snug hobbit holes!
We’ve reached a point where the commentators at Counter-Currents are at least one order of magnitude better than the writers. The blog itself now basically represents things I vehemently oppose: narrow ethnonationalism, reactionary traditionalism, Luddite backwardness, and twigs-and-branches hatred of technology. To the forest! To the provinces, where de facto anarchy reigns! Tolkien! Hobbit holes! Evola! Guenon! Savitri Devi! The Men Who Can’t Tell Time! The Age of Iron (Age peasant farmers)! The Age of Tungsten! The Age of Aluminum Foil! Orcs! Orcs! My kingdom for an orc!
What a waste. Der Movement is a disgusting disgrace.
