Racial Resentment, anti-Colonialism, and the White Future

Food for thought.

I’m no fan of Instauration, but I have no argument with this.  The interesting (in hindsight, obvious) point is that all of these Third World revolutionary movements were based on resistance to racial humiliation, and, in some cases, to racial-sexual humiliation.

Movie scenes of relevance: for Vietnam, see this.  For Cuba, see this.

Also, note the racial-sexual humiliation motivation of the North African Clement Dio character in The Camp of the Saints: “his grandmother, a black harem slavegirl, sold to a brothel for French officers ...”

All of the Third World anti-colonial resistance movements, wars of liberation, etc. were based on the sense of humiliation felt by Colored peoples by White political dominion.  It didn’t matter that Europeans ruled Black Africa better than the Black Africans did after the end of colonialism. It didn’t matter that British rule of India was efficient, or that American money contributed greatly to Cuba’s economy. Nor did whatever benefits brought to Vietnam by the French, or by White Americans, matter. The Coloreds wanted independence, they wanted an end to the humiliation, an end to paternalistic rule by an alien people, an end to seeing their women sexually used (willingly or not) by the racially alien men ruling their nations.  

On second thought, that White rule was seen as more efficient than native rule did matter, being actually more of a reason to end White rule – the humiliation, the constant attack against native self-esteem, to constantly be faced with the reality of White superiority, to have it constantly rubbed in their faces that these aliens could rule them better than they could rule themselves.  And added to all of these sources of resentment was the bitter tinge of racial envy, of hatred of Whites for being White, and all that entailed with respect to the manifest superiority of Whites. Have you ever read any of the anti-White bile that emanated from Black African and Black Caribbean “revolutionary theorists?”  Or how about the hatred toward Whites from Black Americans, from similar sources of racial resentment, the “Civil Rights Movement” being a form on internal, intra-American anti-colonialism (and the same applies to anti-White hatred coming from other non-White “American” peoples).

That’s where the conservative Right always gets things wrong, particularly with their emphasis on “economic theory” and “standard of living” and “rational choices.”  A purely rational, economic choice by non-Whites is to be ruled by Whites, but they reject this because there are things more important than purely material well-being. Racial pride, racial integrity and preservationism, a sense of identity, self-esteem, and end to the pain of national humiliation, you can call all of those things “irrational,” but they are powerful motivators nevertheless.

Will this paradigm one day apply to Whites?  Will Whites continue to be bought off by the System through material well-being (which is, by the way, has a limited shelf-life as the West spirals increasingly out-of-control)?  Will Whites continue to allow themselves to be subject to racial humiliation, including racial-sexual humiliation, without resisting?  Will they allow racial aliens to continue ruling over them?  Do they even recognize that this is the case?How “manifest” is “White superiority” if they do not even recognize, much less resist, the same sort of racial subjugation that non-Whites clearly identified and fought when it was their turn to do so?

Are Whites really and truly inferior after all?  Why do they put up with dispossession, humiliation, and subjugation?  Today the West is being colonized by the Third World. Where is the White anti-colonial movement?

Der Movement Makes You Stupid

And HBD is particularly bad.

Following up on this, let us not forget this.
Sweden’s population is highly individualistic, but operates with a societal consensus, while Sicily has strong families but little cooperation at the societal level.
Now, contrast that with MacDonald’s shallow assertion that Southern Italy is collectivist. Now, the Counter-Currents review is of the same work of MacDonald that MacDonald himself was discussing. Thus, if we try to merge both viewpoints of the same work, then we can conclude that a people that exhibit “little cooperation at the societal level” are “collectivist.”  That’s obviously an oxymoron.  These guys, lost in their sea of lies and hand-waving spin, simply can’t keep their stories straight.  Also note that peoples who are “highly individualistic” also operate “with a societal consensus” – which is almost as inconsistent as stating that folks who can’t cooperate at a level higher than the family are somehow “collectivist.”  Amoral familism is not collectivism, quite the opposite, and the “highly individualistic” Germanic populations cannot be that “highly individualistic” as they are prone to “societal consensus” of a mind-numbing conformity (see the SJW hysteria currently infecting the West).

So, in summary, Der Movement believes that people that operate with a societal consensus, easily invest in collective social goods, and who effectively work together are “highly individualistic;” while people who do not cooperate at the societal level, resist investing in collective social goods, and are composed of squabbling atomized families who don’t pull together are “collectivist.”  If that sounds absolutely crazy to you, that’s because it is.

It’s ludicrous.  If Italy – at least the south – was “collectivist” then they’d band together to at least stop the “migrant” invasion of their nation.  What’s the reality? The anti-immigration Salvini (a “Germanic” “individualist” Northern Italian, by the way) is gone, and the influx (aided and abetted by Northern Europeans) continues. The Italian mafia actually enables human trafficking of illegal immigrants into Italy in order to make money. They are destroying their own people and culture for individual and family self-aggrandizement. Collectivist?  Is corruption and organized crime collectivist? If you really want to see collectivism as a national trait look at the Jews and the Chinese, the HBD favorites. Collectivism?  How about German National Socialism?  That seems to be a lot more “collectivist” than a bunch of Afrowops scurrying around, all wrecking their own nation and people to make a buck.

HBD makes people stupid.  Der Movement’s fetishistic dogmas make people stupid. Always having to shove a square peg of dogma into a round hole of reality should cause severe cognitive dissonance in all of our “movement” “rock stars.”

So, this is a good Taylor video, but it demonstrates a lack of self-awareness.
“Say yes to your friends and no to your enemies.”
So – maybe stop slamming White ethnics and praising Jews?  Who’s been trying to shut down Amren?  Jewish organizations and/or organizations with strong Jewish support.  Who, on the other hand, used to be Amren supporters, even writers? Who do you attack?  Who do you praise?  Indeed, stop taking orders from people who hate you.

And, getting back to the main point of the video – what does this say about that “sincere man of genuine greatness” Donald Trump?  Any comments about that Greg?

It isn’t just HBD that makes people stupid.  Der Movement itself makes people stupid. Look what’s happened to people who’ve marinated in the “movement” milieu for years. MacDonald went from being a courageous and thoughtful scholar to a sweaty Kempian, spouting nonsense that isn’t even internally consistent or even superficially logical, never mind historically accurate. Johnson went from being a reasonably useful metapolitical contributor to a gaslighting grifter concerned about spiting Richard Spencer and garnering as much “D’Nations” as possible. David Duke, maniacally focused on “Zionism” to the exclusion of everything else, has been reduced to endorsing an anti-White half-Samoan leftist who supports reparations for Negroes. The National Alliance has become a pathetic caricature of what it was under Pierce (which itself wasn’t so hot). Whatever promise Spencer had as an activist before he took over NPI has been flushed down the toilet, and he’s become basically a meme for both the Left (elbowing in the face videos) and the Right (the face of Beavis-and-Butthead White nationalism). Taylor is an intelligent and well-educated man, and articulate enough to have been a viable political candidate (in the proper context), but he doesn’t realize when his video criticisms of others apply equally to the direction Amren has taken (HBD is also a problem there). And if guys like Johnson label me as “crazy and bitter,” then chalk that up to my experiences in the “movement” as well.  If Ted Sallis is now unbalanced and defective, as my detractors claim, then that’s from 25 years exposure to the madness of the “movement.”

Food for thought, isn’t it?

Jews, the Decline of MacDonald, and Other News

Jews and other news.

An excellent Joyce piece about Jewish self-glorification.
Jews have a joke among themselves that goes something like this: A class of schoolchildren is asked to produce an essay about giraffes; little Tom Smith hands in a piece on the neck; little John Baker writes about its diet; others write about the tail, the environment, and so on. Then little Benny Cohen hands in his paper, and it is titled “The Giraffe and the Jews.”
The joke, little-known among non-Jews, conveys an important truism — that, for Jews, everything, no matter how distant or abstract, often comes back to the idea and feeling of being Jewish. In other words, it is a joke about Jewish ethnocentrism. That non-Jews aren’t very familiar with the joke speaks to the fact that Jewish ethnocentrism is something that is very frequently discussed and celebrated by Jews, but also something that is frequently downplayed, obscured, or even denied when queried by outgroups.
Indeed.
A particularly interesting aspect of the study by Brown et al. is the response to increasing rates of intermarriage among American Jews. Jewish intermarriage has been raised as evidence by some scholars objecting to analyses of Jewish ethnocentrism, most notably and recently by Nathan Cofnas.[6] However, as Brown et al. note, given more than a century of intense assimilation and acceptance by the host population and a population size of only around 3%, “an endogamy rate [among Jews] of 50% is surprisingly high.”
People familiar with my work over a long period of time may remember that I did a quantitative analysis of this, graphing various White American ethnic groups for proportion of the population (X axis) and outmarriage rate (Y axis). A linear relationship was established – the smaller the group, the greater the outmarriage rate (since the greater the chance of a partner of a different ethnicity). I then tried to place Jews (in America) on that line and saw that they didn’t fit; indeed, their outmarriage rate was depressed compared to gentile groups of similar population size (who had outmarriage rates of greater than 70%). Of course, the more ethnocentric Jews practice endogamy, and if ethnocentrism has, at least in part, a genetic component, this trend would have the effect of increasing Jewish ethnocentrism over time.

One can note that arguments about Jewish outmarriage rates, while perhaps relevant to Jewish genetic strategies, are not directly relevant to the effects of Jews in White societies. Even if Jews are destroying their ethnic integrity through outmarriage (which is questionable) that doesn’t obligate other groups to endure Jewish destructive behavior toward those other groups for the period of time that Jews are still extant.

And speaking of self-glorification, isn’t that what Jewish involvement in the HBD cult is about?  When is Joyce going to denounce that cult and denounce “pro-White activists” who seemingly care more about Jews than about European-derived peoples?  Both Joyce and Strom write good things about the general subject of the Jews, but when it comes to criticizing people on the (Far) Right who are slavishly pro-Jewish, they suddenly become reticent.

And then we have this nonsense:
TOQLIVE: JAMES EDWARDS HOSTS KEVIN MACDONALD: INDIVIDUALISM AND THE WESTERN LIBERAL TRADITION
What that basically is, is MacDonald going hardcore, ultra-Nordicist. And why not?  I've predicted a convergence of HBD, anti-panEuropeanism, Nordicism, etc., with the net effect of alleged anti-Semites being puppets being manipulated by the likes of Hart and Unz.  And, a per the vast majority of my other predictions, I've been proven right.  MacDonald is so hysterical in his HBD-Nordicism that he makes ludicrous comments.  One example is the Kempian talking points about complete population replacement in Rome, which is not only factually incorrect but logically inconsistent with the idea that North/South European differences have been place since the Neolithic. Another example is the idea that Southern Italy is "collectivist" while the truth is that the amoral familism there is inherently anti-collectivist - there is no sense of civic duty or ethnic loyalty or nationalism, just loyalty to smaller family units.  I wrote about that at my old Richard Lynn's Pseudoscience blog:
Amoral Familism is Not Ethnocentrism
This Afrowop defect is not the same as this.
That the HBDers are apparently unable or unwilling to distinguish amoral familism from ethnocentrism does not reflect well on their intelligence or their honesty.
Whether amoral familism is a step on the universalism-ethnocentrism spectrum, or represents an independent entity (in which case we would have at at least a triangle rather than a straight line representing the possibilities), is open to debate.
However, it should be clear that in many ways amoral familism is, practically speaking, as opposed to ethnocentrism as universalism is.  Universalism rejects ethnocentrism because it sees the ethnocentric view as too selfish and narrow, amoral familism rejects ethnocentrism because it is too broad and selfless.
For EGI, ethnocentrism is the "sweet spot," and the other two options are defects.  From the standpoint of building a civil society, amoral familism is the worst, ethnocentrism is the best in a (relatively) homogeneous state but leads to problems in multiculturalism.  Universalism allows for temporary smooth functioning in a multicultural state, but long term leads to ethnic replacement of universalists by ethnocentrists.  Universalism in a homogeneous state is not stable, since it will eventually lead to alien immigration and multiculturalism.
A moderate degree of ethnocentrism in a (relatively) homogeneous state is more optimal than the alternatives.
There is also a question of the relative hereditability of these behavioral patterns.  The more genetically influenced, the more the pattern should hold with migration and existence in multicultural societies. The two extremes of universalism and ethnocentrism may be most heritable.  Contra the HBDers, aside from a dwindling number of mobsters, Afrowops in America really don't practice amoral familism, while Jews and other Asians definitely still practice ethnocentrism. Thus, I doubt that amoral familism hereditability of these behavioral patterns.  The more genetically influenced, the more the pattern should hold with migration and existence in multicultural societies. The two extremes of universalism and ethnocentrism may be most heritable.  Contra the HBDers, aside from a dwindling number of mobsters, Afrowops in America really don't practice amoral familism, while Jews and other Asians definitely still practice ethnocentrism. Thus, I doubt that amoral familism is strongly heritable.  It seems like a very plastic behavioral phenotype.
While it may be extremely difficult to make ethnocentrics into more disinterested civic-minded people, hopefully the more universalist and ex-familistic can be "trained" to become more ethnocentric, in competition to those with an innate sense of extreme ethnocentrism.
This isn't the kind of analysis one would get from a HBDer, who instead would be pathetically groveling in front of the Altar of Asia, and worshiping a pile of yarmulkes.
HBD: the enemy of truth.
MacDonald is essentially trashing his legacy in his old age.  While it is sad to see, and unfortunate, it doesn't obligate me to pull my punches when I comment on such mendacity.

Trump’s campaign antagonism toward the military and intelligence world was at best a millimeter thick. Like almost everything else he said as a candidate, it was a gimmick, designed to get votes. That he was insincere and full of it…
But, hey, according to Greg Johnson, Trump’s sincere, a man of genuine greatness, who could have won with Jeb Bush’s political views.  Even Trump himself refutes the latter, as chronicled at this site.  But Johnson continuously insists otherwise. Is that rent-seeking behavior?  Is Johnson using the Counter-Currents platform to gaslight his readers in order to safeguard his own reputation and the flow of “D’Nations?”

Not a bad Zman essay…particularly as it repeats points made here years ago.

After all, she’s of great benefit to all humanity. Why would anyone think otherwise?  How dare you!  In all seriousness, the positive attitude of Der Movement to that obviously unbalanced little Ladogan is truly tragicomic and pathetic. It is also confirmation of the validity of my criticism of Der Movement.


Hey!  Giovanni Gentile had that Ray Luca-John Gotti-Judge Napolitano puffed up hairstyle.  It’s in the blood, apparently.

Algis Budrys and the Question of Identity

Algis Budrys.

Lithuanian-American science fiction author Algis Budrys emphasized the question of identity, featured in his three major works: Who?Rogue Moon, and Michaelmas.

Read this.  What this summary doesn’t explicitly state about Rogue Moon is that the “matter-transmitter” makes the copies by scanning the person’s original body and coding the information – a process that completely destroys the original body (the copies are reconstituted from any available matter). Thus, there is a question of identity: Hawks insists that the copies are NOT the original, despite being biological duplicates and sharing the memories of the original.  And when Barker and Hawks (copies of the originals) both travel to the moon (via the "matter-transmitter") and survive the artifact, Hawks insists that they can never go back to Earth, because their duplicates (also copies of the originals) are already there, living their own lives. This moon version of Hawks kills himself after stating this, by walking away and letting his air run out; the Earth version of Hawks continues his life (although he is a copy of the original Hawks, and bitterly cognizant of that fact; the Earth copy of Barker, by contrast, could care less).  For a somewhat similar theme, see this Outer Limits episode.

The question of identity in Who? Is obvious and at one point, when nothing is left to be done, Rogers asks the man in question point-blank: “Martino, are you Martino?” The answer he gets back is a simple “no” – even though (spoiler alert!) we find out at the end that it really is Martino. After everything that has happened to him, his sense of self, his identity, has been erased.

In Michaelmas - which unfortunately contains snide attacks against “xenophobic populism” – the question of identity is also considered, as it involves copying individuals as well.

Issues of identity are of course of interest to us, so these works may be useful reading. Indeed, regardless of Budrys' politics, his work clearly suggests that identity - sense of self - depends upon the authenticity and integrity of physical being. That is certainly compatible with a racialist worldview; hence, these works are of value from that perspective.

All Part of the West, Even Though Different

Important Western Destiny essay.


That is a clarification of my pan-European focus, inspired by a nine word phrase found near the end of Yockey's masterpiece Imperium.

The power of Yockey's writing is such that he conveyed in only nine words an idea that it typically takes me an entire essay to articulate.

Odds and Ends, 10/15/19

And the jackass Zman.




Italianthro is gone.  Was he intimidated by Greta Thunberg?

Fighting predatory, invasive, non-native species.  Good idea.  Let’s talk immigration.

I agree with dat dere Rienzi guy.

Jim Colosimo – “swarthy animal magnetism” – Der Afrowop.


More Zman:
I had an early flight out of Copenhagen back to Lagos, so I did the sensible thing…
For a Type I Alt righter
…and went out with the conference goers until the early hours…
Beavis and Butthead snigger.
…We have a lot of South Asians, who are not big on daily bathing. There’s usually one on the plane, so be prepared for it. On one trip, I saw one so ripe that the flight crew hung an air freshener on the seat backs…
The South Asian special – body odor mixed with cheap cologne.  A hallway or stairwell will stink of that for, literally, hours after one of the cogelites walk by. It is difficult to restrain from vomiting. Experto crede.
…started to think about those people living in the Roman Empire wondering why the water no longer comes from the big stone thingy anymore. 
Because invading Germans wrecked them?
Some may have remembered their ancestors working on them for some reason, but they no longer recall why. 
What bullshit.  When the water stopped running, it was because the city was sacked by, and later mismanaged by, the Holy Ones.
The people who knew how and why those aqueducts worked were long gone. No one was around who could figure out how to make them work again, because they lacked the capacity to do it.
Absolute, raging bullshit.  The water stopped flowing after the fall of the empire. Who was running the show then?  Maybe folks who never built aqueducts in the first place. Odoacer: “What’s that big stone thingy?  Can my horse drink out of it?” Hey, Zman, take your Kempian lies back to “Lagos.” By the way, the “Lagos” joke is so stale by now it’s starting to stink like one of Zman's South Asians.
I got into Montreal looking forward to some lunch. I had a good long nap and my olfactory receptors were cleansed of Mr. Bong’s stink, by the waves of perfume from the shopping area passengers are now forced to endure at airports. Everyone is forced through a shopping zone now, as they want to make sure you are always ready to consume next product. As a result, airports now smell like the dressing room of a strip club…
Zman knows how they smell.  Interesting.
Normally, when you connect on an international trip, you just walk to the next gate and maybe you have to go through passport control. In Montreal, I had to go through customs, then security and then passport control again. It was a slow mess...
But I thought all of the excess bureaucracy in Europe was because of the EU. You mean, it is in Canada as well?
I finally made it back to Lagos with a collection of great memories of a wonderful time with friends in the European scene. Frodi is a great host and wonderful person.  I’m thankful for having got to know him and now count him as a friend…
But he can’t understand a simple concept even when explained to him repeatedly over a period of months.  Well, he works with Counter-Currents....

Agreeing with Zman for Once

Some points (emphasis added).

I’m usually highly critical of Zman, but this piece is fairly good, particularly as some of his comments overlap with some things I’ve written about in the past.  A few comments:
That is a bit of an exaggeration, but the point is to give Antifa as little time as possible to organize a riot. It works pretty well, but not this year. They were onto the location just as the doors opened. 
What does that tell you?  That the group in question has been infiltrated.  That the Left knew all about your precautions and set-up, probably because all of the “extreme vetting” failed once again.  Operational security is a fatal flaw in Der Movement; and that applies to Europe as well as America. Remember Steadman?
As we see in the States, Antifa in Denmark enjoys broad police protection. 
And who votes into power the politicians that enable this?
This is an old topic I have been debating with Fróði for months…I’ve tried to explain this to them, but they don’t get it
OK, if they cannot understand a simple concept after months of debate (months!), then that doesn’t reflect well on their intelligence or common sense.
It also ties into another topic that is popular at dissident conferences and came up in this one during Q&A. In America, dissident politics tends to attract losers and weirdos, who have nothing to lose. They don’t care about being outed, because no one cares enough about them to bother. In order to attract high quality people, we have to deal with their fear of doxing. Allowing guys to stay anonymous is a part of doing business in American politics now. That’s not the case in Europe.
This is exactly the point I’ve been making for years now.  Defeating social pricing is a key for success for American activism.  We need POPA, among other things.
Another thing that is different in Europe from the US is the dissident movements spring from different roots. In Europe, the guys you see organizing came out of hard right party politics and the underground scene. Collett was in the British National Party, which is a fascist party, for the most part. Fróði got into politics through the far-right Scandinavian subculture and from reading people like William Pierce. Over time, their views moderated and changed in the face of multiculturalism and immigration.
That’s why they are more successful.
In America, most dissidents came through libertarianism…
That’s why American “activism” is pathetic joke – or one reason at least.
It is an interesting contrast, in that the Euros are trying to clean up their act, while the Americans are trying to dirty up their act. For example, Collett, who is a reformed drinker, is intolerant of alcohol and drugs in his organization. He is relentless in his demand for making the right presentation. He talks about health and fitness, personal grooming and how to properly approach people on politics. In America, dissidents are always on guard for cucking, to the point of distraction.
Yes, Zman, but that wasn’t always the case.  In WN 1.0, people like Pierce preached much of what Collett says. It is only with your vaunted WN 2.0, the Beavis-and-Butthead WN of the Alt Right, that we have the “dirtying up.”
All-in-all it was a good time. There are things Americans can learn from the Euros, particularly when it comes to organizing. It’s always good to socialize with people who understand the issues. A big part of the dissident project is community building and that can only happen with in-person events. No matter what comes next, the people to come out the other end in the best shape will be those who have the community strength to handle whatever comes. When the crisis comes, we have to be ready for it.
I agree about community building. The problem is that it is very difficult, if not impossible in America, due to the social pricing problems alluded to by Zman, the high degree of defectives in the “movement,” the incompetent organizing and consequent ease of infiltration, and the bad behavior tolerated at meetings (e.g., the Pilleater Chronicles).
