Editor’s Note: I found this in the archives. I wrote this a decade ago when I was attempting to look into the future. I got some things right and some things wrong.
A few reasons for optimism:
1.) I predict advances in genetics will deepen our understanding of racial differences. The data will undermine the scientific legitimacy of Boasian style anti-racism. This information will continue to trickle down into the minds of educated people. I think HBD could go mainstream. It has the potential to become “common knowledge.”
I got this one partially right.
In the 2010s, there were advances in genetics which did deepen our understanding of racial differences and which have firmly discredited Boasian-style anti-racism. The deep human past is rapidly opening up to us due to advances in paleogenomics. The popular culture, however, has diverged from science due to the Great Awokening.
2.) In the decade ahead, what will Kevin MacDonald do with his time? I can only see him deepening his analysis of Jewish influence in destructive social and political movements. He has a strong foundation to build upon.
I got this one right.
Dr. Kevin MacDonald has a new book out on the evolutionary origins of liberalism which complements The Culture of Critique series.
3.) Kevin MacDonald has a small staff now. He has created the nucleus of a group with enormous potential. In terms of theory, imagine where we will be in ten years.
I was referring to the TOQ Online website.
A decade later, we still haven’t succeeded in building institutions around men like Dr. Kevin MacDonald. The TOQ Online website is nowhere near as influential as it was in 2009, but our sphere of the internet is much larger and much more influential than it was back then. As a political theory and economic paradigm, liberal democracy and neoliberalism are on the ropes and have suffered a sweeping decline in the 2010s.
4.) Four years ago, friedrich braun floated the idea of creating a multicontributor blog that would include daily commentary from the brightest minds in White Nationalism. We now have that in TOQ Online and TOO Blog. Finally, it is a reality.
I got that one right.
We have an ecosystem of websites like that now. I was writing at the time when our scene was transitioning from vBulletin forums to blogs and webzines. It later transitioned from blogs and webzines to podcasts and social media. The liberal establishment pulled the fire alarm after the 2016 election and now we live in an age of censorship.
5.) White Nationalists are taking their first steps into radio. Jim Giles has a regular radio show. Dietrich has Voice of Reason. James Edwards has The Political Cesspool. Ten years from now, I predict WN talk radio will be widespread and taken for granted.
Podcast Nationalism is now taken for granted.
TRS has been at the forefront of this. It was not something that we were taking for granted a decade ago. This was an advance. Give them some credit.
6.) Craig Bodeker has created an excellent documentary about race. This is a model for others to build upon. YouTube can bring WN video and racialist commentary to millions for little cost.
In this area, we succeeded beyond our wildest expectations in creating platforms and forced the ADL to step in and SHUT IT DOWN. It is an open question whether they will be able to get away with this in the long run. It depends on the future of social media and whether it remains consolidated and under the control of a few Silicon Valley monopolies.
7.) America’s immigration problem will only get worse. The Republicans will be under constant pressure to appease the growing Hispanic electorate. As the mainstream moves to the Left, a huge cross section of the Right will be pushed beyond the borders of respectability. This could possibly give us our first mass constituency.
This came true.
The immigration crisis did give us our first mass constituency. It fueled the growth of populism and nationalism all over the world. It gave us Blompf who didn’t live up to our expectations. In hindsight, we weren’t expecting to elect a nationalist president though as early as the 2010s, so I remain optimistic that we might get something better in the future.
8.) The internet isn’t going away. The print media is also drying up. Young people rely on the net to get the news. Ten years from now, the young will be middle aged, and the generations that follow will rely even more on the net. White Americans will find themselves in ever closer proximity to our ideas.
This also came true.
I wrote this when I was 29 years old. I’m about to be 39 years old and the generation that is coming up underneath me doesn’t get their news from anywhere but the internet. They don’t read print newspapers or watch much cable television owned by corporate conglomerates.
9.) Ten years from now, the new rhetoric of race and anti-Semitism will have completely replaced the old within the WN movement. The process is already well underway. The popular stereotypes found in the media will be ever more out of sync with reality. The improvement in our public image will result in more recruits.
More or less.
The 1.0 movement was succeeded by the 2.0 movement and now seems hopelessly antiquated. The 2.0 movement had its own problems and also seems increasingly antiquated. Overall, White Nationalism gave way to the Alt-Right which is giving way to something else which isn’t clear yet but which should be soon. We will continue to be a part of it.
10.) The influx of new supporters will reinforce the “mainstreamer” tendency. Suits and ties will be the norm. Costumes will be a thing of the past. The old rhetoric will be gone. Dysfunctional types will be nowhere near as prominent. Many of the issues that are debated today will have long been resolved.
The costume groups are the LWK and NSM.
They are nowhere near as prominent as they were in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. There has been a lull in street activism since Charlottesville, but in the event Blompf loses the 2020 election, a Democrat is elected and there is a resurgence in street activism it will incorporate the lessons of Charlottesville. Costume Nationalism is a thing of the past.
11.) The cultural ground has been prepared for a mass membership activist organization. In the next decade, I predict it will finally emerge. Someone will finally do it. The number of sane and normal people will reach a critical mass and will demand action. The Feds won’t be able to shut it down because everyone involved will be ordinary concerned citizens exercising their rights.
Unfortunately, this didn’t happen in the 2010s, but I expect it will happen in the 2020s because there is now a consensus that real world networking should be done privately and without the media present. It didn’t happen in the 2010s because Antifa and the media were able to disrupt it. We had to learn some hard lessons to figure that out.
12.) The vanguard or spearhead of this social movement is already emerging. You can see it happening here at TOQ Online and at Occidental Observer. Ten years from now, the movement won’t be divided between “mainstreamers” and “vanguardists.” This will be a thing of the past.
This also didn’t happen.
