Navigating the madhouse.
What advice would I give a (real, not infiltrator) newcomer, particularly a young one, to the “movement?” Since most, albeit of course not all, such newcomers would be expected to be relatively young, and since younger, less experienced, individuals would be more likely to be vulnerable to errors of judgment, I entitle this piece: “Advice For the Young Activist,” although it applies to all people who find themselves in The Movement Madhouse.
Based on plenty of experience (most of it negative), I would start off with the following.
Be careful of who you deal with, who you have confidence in, who you trust. In more than 20 years involved with racial activism, I can honestly say that there have been only two people I’ve known in the “movement” that I have had complete confidence in, who I would consider 100% trustworthy. One of these is someone I’ve known for nearly 20 years, the other is someone I worked with very closely for several years before he passed away. That’s it. Two in 20+ years, of the dozens and dozens (if you can online commentators, hundreds) of people I’ve encountered. If we relax the criteria and ask how many people in the “movement” I have reasonably solid confidence in, people I’d be willing to invite over for dinner, interact with personally – maybe half-a-dozen total (including the two already discussed). The point: be very careful who you associate who you trust. You will meet some of the best people you will ever know in the “movement,” but also some of the worst, and the latter will outnumber the former. A dissident movement will by its very nature tend to attract marginal personalities, and that has been amplified by freakish dogma, lack of quality control, and piss-poor leadership.” Combine that with outright trolls infiltrators, and agent provocateurs, as well as the weak-minded who join for dubious reasons and then leave – without being able to keep their mouths shut about it – and you have a recipe for disaster unless you are very careful. Then one hears rumors of “homosexual grooming of young boys” at “Alt Right pool parties” – I have no idea if that is true or not, but young men should exercise caution. The same applies to young women entering the “movement” who may be the center of attention from the sex-starved heterosexual activist contingent.
Don’t fall in with personality cults. Note to the “movement”: there are no “rock stars” – or there should not be any; no one is infallible; and although there are some important personages who have done real solid work, which should be respected and appreciated, no one is above criticism. The idea that we should, on the one hand, critique “the personality cults of Jewish intellectual movements” while, on the other hand, mimic the same type of personality cult among racial activism, is outright hypocrisy and demonstrates a stunning lack of self-awareness. If you read or hear “rock star” in reference to anyone, if you see, read, or hear anything that tells you that criticism of certain people is forbidden, then run as fast as you can. That’s a cult, not a genuine movement.
Think for yourself, don’t mindlessly swallow fossilized “movement” dogma. The same admonitions against cultism applies to dogma that is above criticism. We all know the official dogma: Nordicism, ethnic fetishism, Ostara-like “racial history,” HBD, etc. If there is something you are not allowed to criticize, then that’s a cult, not a real political movement.
Be wary of real-life public meetings and rallies, know very well what you are getting into and be prepared. There are a number of dangers here. First, even in the absence of leftist opponents, you will likely be exposed to some “sincere” unsavory characters. Second, the leftist problem exists and comes in two flavors. There’s the “infiltrator” flavor and then there’s the overt “in your face” flavor, the latter of which runs the spectrum of merely loud protests, and the taking of pictures and filming, to actual physical assault. Most likely, your personal self-defense will be your own responsibility, and don’t expect any real security to weed out infiltrators or to even to prevent someone sticking a cell phone camera in your face. Weigh the costs and benefits of such meetings, look at your own personal situation carefully, understand the implications and consequences, and go from there. If you do attend meetings at which there is no confidence of security (most of them), you at least would want to consider investing in some “technics” to obfuscate identity if you do have that cell phone camera in your face. It goes without saying that unless you want to play a leadership role – and you know you would be accepted as such based on your merits (see below on “affirmative action”) – then do protect your pseudonymity.
Take care of yourself first. When you travel by plane, you are told than in case of emergency, you put your own oxygen mask on first and then you help the person next to you. The same principle applies here. If you and your life are a mess, you’ll be little help to anyone, including “the White race.” Education, career, financial security, family, health – all come first, racial activism comes second. That’s not “selfish individualism” - is it just good sense and putting yourself in the position of being the best you can be, which will be of benefit to everyone around you. Be wary of the siren song: “I don’t know why people bother going to college or saving for retirement – don’t they know that the System is going to completely collapse in five years?” They’ve been saying that same nonsense for more than 50 years now. Ignore them. Essentially what they are saying is: “Don’t take care of yourself – take care of ME instead.” They want your time, your effort, and, above all else, they want your MONEY. Don’t fall for it. In many cases, calls for “selfless altruism” are actually self-interested appeals for the altruist to sacrifice himself for those doing the calling.
Don’t buy into the “Armageddon” rhetoric that “the collapse of the System and the revolution” is just around the corner, within five years it’ll all collapse. As noted above, they’ve been saying that for more than 50 years
Don’t waste time with online comments threads flamewars. That speaks for itself. That’s all a waste of time, unproductive, revolving around personalities and not issues, and this time sink will get you more involved with activist freaks than you would ever want.
Don’t have unrealistic expectations and then get “burnt out” when you don’t see victory right around the corner. I’m not necessarily echoing Spengler’s “Optimism is cowardice,” but you must be realistic. This is a long-haul endeavor, anyone who promises quick fixes ad immediate gratification is either delusional or a charlatan.
Be persistent but know when to change strategy and tactics when a “dead end” won’t budge. Don’t be a fossil. Be flexible.
Don’t throw good money after bad. Many “movement” outlets have their hands out; they are very good at pan-handling. You may feel like: “I’ve already invested so much into these people, I can’t give up now.” No, it’s a sunk cost, accept it and move on. This applies to the investment of time and effort as much as the investment of money. Avoid the “denial of sunk cost” trap – which you are afraid to “break” with a failed group, etc. because of the perception that you’ve sunk too much into it to leave it now. You will just sink deeper and deeper into failure. Accept sunk costs and move on.
If some individual/group/organization is unable to clearly define who their “ingroup” is, who they are for, run as quickly as you can. In particular, if you are in any way unsure whether you yourself are “in” why would you waste any investment of time and resources if a group of mendacious liars or indecisive dithering idiots? You have the right to invest in your own genetic interests. You are not there to be the extended phenotype of someone else, defending their genetic interests at the cost of your own. Demand transparency and reciprocity regarding interests, and if you don’t get it, take your business elsewhere. Don’t fall for the “we’ll sort all this out after the revolution.” No, sort it out NOW. And if you find some individual or group trying to renegotiate the ingroup after the fact, suggesting that maybe you don’t belong after all, AFTER you’ve already invested your time, effort, and money with them, then they are utterly devoid of character, and you need to leave them ASAP, regardless of what they “decide” about ingroups. Deciding on the ingroup is the FIRST thing - the DEFINING thing any group must do. The definition of a group is meaningless without a clear “in/out” and if the “in/out” is going to be redefined midstream, then the definition of the group is also meaningless. Don’t waste your time with meaningless groups….or with meaningless individuals.
Don’t waste time with “man on white horse” syndromes, magical thinking about quick fixes, and that mainstream leaders are “secretly on our side.” They’re not.
Don’t be afraid to call out “movement” “leaders” when such fail time and time again. They’ll get hysterical, “ban” you from their sites, call you names (the pot calling the kettle black), they’ll do anything to protect their money stream. After all, we can’t let the rubes know how they are getting fleeced now, can we? As a corollary don’t buy into, or yourself promote, the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action policy. If any “movement” precinct declares that groups A-M are part of their ingroup, and groups N-Z are not, well and good, but then leadership of that precinct should be able to come from any qualified person derived from that ingroup (A-M). Any “movement” group that has a caste system within their ingroup – run. They are being disingenuous; they really want an ingroup narrower than they outwardly proclaim, and are just fishing for more money sources and other forms of support. Again, don’t be someone else’s extended phenotype.
If I think of any more advice, a follow-up to this post will be produced in the future.
