Strom and Johnson

Some comments.

Kevin Strom is one of the few people on the far-Right who talk sense about Trump.

Greg Johnson is another.  While I usually agree with him on most things, a serious point of departure is described in this brief fisking.

When I speak of White Nationalism, I mean ethnic nationalism for every particular white ethnic group — Italians, French, Americans, Canadians, etc. — not some sort of European Imperium and melting pot, an idea which is revolting on the face of it, since it replicates all of the problems of globalization merely on a smaller scale…

Some problems, perhaps, but then the nation state can have the same problems as well. Greg is talking to Italians there.  Very well.  There are separatists in Italy who feel that the Italian state smothers their identity as does globalism, and the Flemish in Belgium feel similarly and there are other such examples.  Well, fine, let them separate.  Very good.  And how does a micro-state of Flanders or Padania or Catalonia or whatever make its way in a world with a clash of civilizations and with single nations (e.g., China and India) which contain hundreds of millions more people than all the Whites on Earth combined?  An alliance of White states perhaps?  A European Imperium that preserves a degree of internal sovereignty and certainly prevents internal migration flows, but puts up a common front for defense, space exploration and other science/technics, and various cultural projects? What’s wrong with that?  Even Durocher I believe endorsed that at one time or another.  Or do we try and have nations of several million trying to have relevance in a world with nations of over a billion?

…and which could never be realized without the fratricidal European wars…

Brought to us by ethnonationalism, which wrecked the White race with its internal feuds.

 …it is supposed to prevent. 

Why can’t the Imperium be voluntary, a confederation of nationalists?

If advocates of a white Imperium want to prove that it is more than a pipe dream, they can demonstrate this by first putting Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia back together. 

Why should they?  Serbia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia can all be independent members of an Imperium that respects internal differences, as Yockey and Lowell have proposed.

If they can manage that, I will take them seriously.

I will take ethnonationalists seriously if they accept responsibility for two world wars that wrecked the White world and if they can explain why China should take Flanders seriously.
