It's a Good Thing

Darwinian selection.

The main article is worthless, don't waste too much time on that. Instead, read the comments section, in detail. While I usually abhor comments sections on blog posts, that one is useful.  Note the widespread disgust for Engelman; more important, note the prediction that the likes of Engelman will ruin the pro-White sites they participate in, and the observation that Amren has already been so compromised (with declining online rankings). Of course, the decline of Amren preceded Engleman's participation; he has merely hastened it.

In fact, most of the major pro-White sites and blogs are in serious decline: in some cases with diminished readership, in all cases a sharp decline in the quality and quantity of posts and comments, in each case reflecting increasing desolation and lethargy.  In some cases, these are sites I was previously involved in, and left when the rot set in, and those in charge refused to listen to the warnings of myself and others about what was happening, and refused to take to heart the suggestions made to effectively deal with the problems.  And these people never noticed that, even at their best, that their blogs/sites were just going around and around in circles, never making progress, never advancing in ideas and action in any meaningful sense.

In the sort run, this is bad; in the long run, it's a good thing.  It's a form of Darwinian selection.  The problem is, however, that currently there is nothing better available to fill the niche space. Groupuscules like the Western Destiny-EGI Notes- Richard Lynn's Pseudoscience axis can in no way even fill a fraction of this gap. What is required is one or more sane and competent and visionary full-time activists, people with a plan, people who know how to identify and weed out the trolls and the dysfunctional, people who eschew freakish people and freakish memes, people who reject the easy path of convenience and compromise, people who know how to do things the right way.  People who have, as stated, a plan - how to get from "point A" to "point B" - without spending years circling around point A in fruitless intellectual onanism and self-indulgent navel-gazing.  People flexible enough to have alternative contingency plans in case things go wrong - and the foresight to have prepared such contingencies in advance. Thus, we require an entirely new breed of movement activist, almost an entirely new species of individual.  Until then, the nihilistic destructiveness of the likes of Engelman, and the the self-destructive spiral of "movement leaders," can only be viewed with a sense of wistful schadenfreude.
