I haven’t written much lately because I have been black-pilled by the Islamic terrorism in Europe (and the lack of a proper response to it) and the destruction of Confederate monuments across Dixie. While good things are happening in Poland and Hungary and nationalists are increasingly popular in Sweden it is clear that we still have much work ahead of us if we want to survive and prosper in the future.
The rise of the Alt-Right is evidence that there are many who feel alienated from the culture and people around them in the West today. Whites both here and in Western Europe “exist not as peoples with states, but inside them.” Southerners and other Western peoples generally exist within hostile regimes that are actively and aggressively replacing us and denying us political influence in a system aligned against our interests.
Recently, I came across the idea of the Fifth Political Theory, an approach for “identity-conscious Westerners” as a “diaspora tribe” who want a future for their people. It seems to fit well with my thoughts about our present state and what we can realistically do going forward. The key fact of our situation seems to be our statelessness, and that is not likely to change in the near future here in Dixie. “What 5PT wants to achieve is not state power but congregational power, that of real communities networked together as part of our sub-national and trans-national diaspora.” This approach seems promising. In fact, we already seem to be doing this on the Alt-Right:
5PT will be about building and creating our congregations and networks, about forging the Western diaspora into a real-world tribe with populations in both hemispheres in order to restore ourselves as a viable ethnos. We will link the Western diaspora of Europe with the Western diaspora of North America, with the Western diaspora of British Oceania, with the Western diaspora of Latin America, with the Western diaspora of Africa, and so forth. This is a stateless, sub-national and trans-national conception.
This is obviously not an in-depth analysis of 5PT but rather an introduction for OD readers. How well does 5PT fit within a Southern Nationalist or Alt-South framework? What, if anything, useful can we take away from it? These are questions for our readers to consider.
