With the successful launch of Alternative Right, the old split between the neo- and the paleo-conservatives was laid to rest. What many of us felt was coming, finally happened. There now exists a very real and very serious split between conservatives who remain firmly emotionally, spiritually and intellectually attached to the United States and those whose attachment has transferred from that nation state to the people who formed that nation state to protect and defend their natural rights and liberties: the European-American people of North America.
The latter was so long associated with the former that it still seems absurd to many Americans to speak of the two as having dissimilar interests, let alone clashing interests. Nevertheless, what was once a tiny fringe has become, if not a mass movement, a much larger fringe.
But it is not the size of this fringe but its quality and character that is important. When one looks at small movements that were harbingers of grand change in the past one notices certain commonalities. Expression of a valid nationalistic ideal, appeals to a common heritage, rejection of current politics in favor of an entirely new polity based on a new understanding, wit, passion and, most of all, the ability to reject the status quo as out of date and already dead convincingly.
In that sense, the war has already been won. While superficially the American state appears beyond challenge and is actively spreading its radical egalitarianism in all corners of the world, the reality on the ground is that the backbone of the country which works and produces to provide such fiscal, moral, legal and military power has also been scheduled for destruction by the power that relies upon it.
It is really no more complicated than that. The liberal state is driven to destroy what makes it and its illusions possible by an almost mechanistic impulse.
And as this has become more clear, we now see with the rise of the Euro-American nationalist right as a new virtual community the first post-American rightist opposition to the current system.
The ability to take the huge mental step and declare the current government a failed experiment is extremely powerful and liberating. It enables one to take a long view and take comfort in the fact that while we are writing and speaking in a dark time for our people, we are also now laying the base for the nation to come, the first stirrings of a new nation in the New World.
Take heart, we are just finding our voice.
