Editor’s Note: We’re not done here. I will soon be adding three more points on the environment, positive vibes in our movement and humanity and whiteness not being inherently opposed. We also need a discourse that blends a message of peace, populism, progress and prosperity.
I’ve been working on this ever since the debacle at Michigan State:
“Ok, I’ve seen enough.
This is a send off post. I’m tired of this subject consuming my time and distracting me. Whether it is the lack of a sturdy ideological framework, the lack of cohesion, the total lack of solidarity, the optics spiraling, the hatred of women, the disrespect and whining about our elders, the unseemly snobbery, the inability to handle the slightest setback, the unwillingness to make sacrifices, the absence of traits like loyalty, the Trump personality cult, the dominance of aesthetics over morality, the intersection with weird internet subcultures which have nothing to do with nationalism (are traps gay?) or everything being a nihilistic joke, ironic bantz, troll or retarded meme, I’m sorry but this is going nowhere.
I’m going to tune out, clear my head, get back to work here and move on. See you around for Alt-Right 2.0 or whatever the hell comes after this incarnation of it. …”
I joked on James Edwards show last night that when our thinking and discourse is purified and polished up a bit from the last upgrade it will come out sounding French.
White Nationalism 1.0
1.) Race – The first point is that race exists within the human species. This isn’t “racism” which is rooted in a spirit of malevolence. It is simply an acknowledgment of reality.
2.) Jewish Power – Jews have enormous power and influence within our society. It has become the elephant in the room in the age of Donald Trump and MIGA. This antiquated taboo simply can no longer be maintained when Jewish donors are buying our foreign policy.
3.) White Identity – It Is Okay To Be White. There is nothing wrong with White identity. It is healthy and normal to have a positive sense of identity. This shouldn’t be repressed.
4.) Humor – The Alt-Right took the first three points from White Nationalism 1.0 and made it funny and sold it to a broader audience. This was one of its greatest accomplishments. When the Alt-Right ceased to be funny and became overly serious, it lost a key to its success.
5.) Memes and Optics – The Alt-Right’s memes and optics game has improved tremendously in March as the wider community has finally begun to move on from Donald Trump. I’d like to see more of this visual art. The people who are creating it are very talented.
6.) Infiltrating Politics – In the Trump era, this took the form of trying to infiltrate mainstream conservatism, the debate over “Americana” and backing the MAGA movement. Clearly, this strategy hit a wall though around the time of CPAC 2019. Hold that thought.
7.) Identitarianism – Identitarianism was the backbone philosophy of the Alt-Right and expressed itself in identity politics groups like the NPI, Patriot Front and Identity Evropa. Unfortunately, I think this has lead us to a dead end in trying to align ourselves with the “White People’s Party.” I think we all now realize these people are extremely old and will never change their ways. Identity is good. Identity politics, however, has misled us.
National Populism or Radical Centrism (3.0)
8.) Health and Fitness – I think the Rise Above Movement was on to something here and tacking on an emphasis on physical fitness and rejecting drug abuse would be widely accepted as an improvement in the platform by almost everyone. I recently sounded delirious to some of my readers because I have incorporated fasting into my diet for health and mental clarity reasons. I do this to develop spiritually and to cut through mental cobwebs to write more incisively.
9.) Post-Americanism – White Nationalism 1.0 and the Alt-Right made peace with the idea that America was dead and was never coming back in the 1990s. The Trump era was an aberration. Donald Trump sold us on a nostalgic vision that he could take us back to the White America of the 1950s or even the Ronald Reagan era of the 1980s. Unfortunately, he has only made matters worse.
We need to accept the fact that we are living in the 21st century. This means getting beyond nostalgia for a variety of dead regimes whether it is restoring the Confederacy or the Third Reich or 1950s America. It is impossible to resurrect the dead. We can only learn from history and apply its insights to the present and the future. That’s why we need to move beyond identity politics (which is being exploited by conservatism) and instead organize to become America’s largest tribe.
Even if we are no longer dominant, White people are still the largest tribe in America. It is going to be in the interest of everyone that a big space be made in the “mainstream” for White identity and White interest group politics. The two parties should be competing over our support. We shouldn’t simply automatically vote Republican because the Boomers have done so.
I’m going to stay White, Southern and Christian. I am going to be a wild card though in elections. I could really swing either way given how worthless the Republican Party has become.
10.) Cultural Message – The Alt-Right never had a clear cultural message. The message should have been that political correctness is a terrible operating system for our society. It is a cultural virus that divides and inflames the body politic. It pits groups against each other. It is wholly a negative, diabolical force in our society and the True Faith is propped up by disciplinary institutions like the SPLC and ADL, SJWs in academia, Antifa at the street level and Journofa in the media with their heretics list.
We should think of ourselves as reformers like, say, Martin Luther or John Calvin or Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuit Order. The problem is political correctness and our message is that we should get rid of it. We can replace it with the finest wines of Western civilization: the virtue ethics of Aristotle and classical Antiquity, the Christian faith which was once the bedrock of our common culture and the values of the Enlightenment such as free speech, tolerance and reason. We should contrast our moderation with the bigotry and fanaticism of the zealots who oppose our message of reform.
These people have mistaken politics for ethics. A common morality reconciles people of different points of view. It is positive as opposed to negative. It stimulates love instead of hatred. I think smart people are beginning to recognize that political correctness has poisoned our discourse. It has made countless issues toxic and nearly impossible for Americans to talk about anymore.
I shouldn’t have to tell you that Pittsburgh and New Zealand is what happens under our current absurd moral system. Catholicism was a better moral system even when it abused indulgences. Protestantism was a better moral system because it eliminated the middle man between the individual and God. Political correctness, however, simply damns the “sinner” to Purgatory in this world until he self detonates in a mass shooting because he sees no other way out of it.
11.) Centrism – The Alt-Right was never the “Far Right.” It was “Far Right” in the sense that nationalists and populists are in the MIDDLE OF THE ELECTORATE. Generally speaking, we are socially conservative, economically populist voters. We are radicalized moderates.
Why have we been radicalized? There is no place for White identity in the middle of the electorate. There is no place for a discussion of such obvious White interests as ending the opioid and suicide epidemic in White America which is a modern day plague. Obesity is another modern day plague. Divorce and the collapse of the family is a plague. Nihilism is one of the biggest modern day plagues. We’re in the center and seeing the social fabric ripped from both ends by anarchists and conservatives.
12.) Economics – The Alt-Right never had an economic platform. Andrew Yang has come along with a slew of interesting proposals: Medicare for All, a Legion of Builders and Destroyers (Infrastructure), Universal Basic Income, Student Loan Forgiveness, overthrowing the oligarchy that controls our politics by giving ordinary people the money to match their financial clout and influence.
Yang is offering what is essentially a 21st century version of the New Deal for Millennials and Zoomers. He calls it “humane capitalism” and contrasts it with free-market capitalism and socialism. It is why the meme makers are so excited about his candidacy. Even if Yang fails to win the Democratic nomination, we should scoop up a lot of his ideas and make them our own. The “Humanity First” message is also a winner because it defuses the tribalism and hostility of other groups.
13.) Vision of the Future – Yang is offering an extremely potent vision of social and economic reform. He proposes putting a financial floor of $1,000 a month of basic income under the feet of the White working class and White middle class in America. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how much stress this would relieve in their lives and how much it would improve their well-being.
The $1,000 a month to abolish wage slavery is also just a start. As history moves forward and robotics and artificial intelligence displace human workers, the wealth created by scientific and technological progress could be redistributed through a social dividend. The “floor” would then grow higher and higher from one generation to the next and it would enable people to pursue higher order goods like, say, living in a culturally and ethnically homogeneous tribal community.
As Universal Basic Income cranks up over time, people will naturally retribalize, kind of just chill and the social fabric will begin to heal as future generations focus more on cultural pursuits than on providing for their basic economic needs. It is a happy vision of world peace and progress. Yang is one of the few people who realizes that having more money and redistributing it more broadly will solve most social problems and reconcile countless previously “irreconcilable” -isms.
14.) Accelerationism – The easiest way to topple Conservatism, Inc. would be to leave the Republican Party and join the Democratic Party. We can have a greater disruptive impact by going into the other political party, pulling it back toward the center of the electorate and by cancelling out the votes of all the bigots and fanatics in that party who are our enemies.
Conceivably, White people could become just another tribe in the Democratic coalition reconciled with the other tribes. It would be the largest tribe. We would be easier for the Democrats to absorb than the Republicans because they are already used to dealing with a wide range of interest and identity groups and treating White people the same as everyone else would detoxify “racism” and give them the electoral majorities that are needed to accomplish major legislative goals.
When the “racists” were in the Democratic Party, FDR was president and the Democrats got all kind of things done. When the “racists” left to join the Republican Party in the 1960s, the only thing it accomplished was resurrecting conservatism for a generation. Thus, it would be better to just have the “racists” inside the fold and reduce the GOP back to the minority party it used to be. The Civil Rights Movement gave conservatism a new lease on life after Herbert Hoover.
15.) Non-violence – Self explanatory.
Note: Everything else can be built upon this platform like immigration reform and lingering concerns about gun rights which can be sorted out after depolarizing our politics. The single most important thing that has to change though is that our politics can no longer be polarized between crazy SJW fundamentalists on the Left and angry conservative Boomers on the Right.
