My people have a right to exist. My people have a right to celebrate our heritage and identity. My people have a right to ensure our future existence. For positively any other identity aside from those of White Americans, our colonial sister nations, and our cousins in Western Europe, this assertion would be uncontroversial. And yet, for our people, it’s intuitively scandalous. Some even contend that the assertion is so vile, so immoral, that it’s intolerable “hate speech” of questionable legality. Others even claim that it’s so wicked that it amounts to outright heresy, and condemns one to eternal damnation.
Mass hysteria is a human universal, though the object of that hysteria varies from one crowd to another. We White Americans in particular are especially known for our moral panics. Mere decades ago, marijuana was considered a dangerous and decadent gateway to criminality and mental illness and our law books have only recently began to soften from the hysterical position that possessing and consuming this mild hallucinogen warranted years, even decades, of hard time alongside racketeers, rapists, and murders.
Charles Mackay famously noted that “Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.” Slowly, and one by one, more and more of us are awakening from the anti-White madness which has gripped the West for well over a generation.
Nationalists like myself, men and women who are actually organizing in our collective interests and speaking publicly in defense of our heritage, are merely the spearhead of a much larger phenomenon. Wherever the institutional grip on controlled discourse is loosened, most pointedly on anonymous Internet comment threads and in private discussions both online and in real life, a rift is rapidly widening between what Serious People™ think and what people seriously think. For quite some time, even as we reach more and more people with our sensible and straightforward positions, we can expect barking and biting from the institutions and the men beholden to them.
But, why? On the face of it, it’s a transparent double-standard. Many identitarians who happen to be White, including myself in my earlier years of activism, presume that our task is as simple as raising awareness of that double-standard. It’s straightforward logic. It’s self-evident that Black, Asian, and Middle Eastern men and women ought to take pride in their identities and fight for their group interests, so it follows that White people have that same right. Right?
The proximate and obvious reason this argument tends to fall flat is that the majority of people are more status-oriented than fact-oriented. Most men are more concerned about whether their ideas are fashionable than whether their ideas are correct. The majority of objections to White Identity amount to some form of appeal to social status. From the drunk girl at the bar incredulously asking Scott Terry “What century are you from!?” to the pretentious claim that we’re “on the wrong side of history”, the implied premise is that ideas are like antiperspirants. If you’re repelling and offending the people around you, then it’s time to switch brands.
The belief that Whites are uniquely and categorically unworthy of organizing and acting in their own interests or even self-preservation is promoted by our society’s elites, the men who control our keystone institutions of government, academia, entertainment, and journalism. Prof. Kevin MacDonald asserts in his landmark essay, Culture of Critique, that the organized Jewish community, driven by deep-seated historical resentments of Christian Europe, are leveraging their access to and success within our keystone institutions to wage a broad campaign against Christianity and Europe alike.
I suspect they’re not only motivated by ressentiment, but by a defensive necessity to transfer blame for the excesses and abuses of global colonialism from themselves and their gentile corporate capitalist cohorts. Just as Southern Aristocrats rapidly shrugged off the guilt of supremacy and slavery onto the Southern White working class who collectively had little to do with the peculiar institution, the families and communities at the helm of the multinational corporations actually accountable for exploitation, domination, and oppression have successfully transferred that colonial guilt onto the entirety of “white people”.
In Understanding Power, Noam Chomsky notes,
“See, capitalism is not fundamentally racist — it can exploit racism for its purposes, but racism isn’t built into it. Capitalism basically wants people to be interchangable cogs, and differences among them, such as on the basis of race, usually are not functional. I mean, they may be functional for a period, like if you want a super exploited workforce or something, but those situations are kind of anomalous. Over the long term, you can expect capitalism to be anti-racist — just because its anti-human.”
This is precisely what we’ve seen, with the capitalists exploiting and inflaming racial supremacy when it was profitable to do so in the colonial era, and now staunchly opposing our racial (and religious) identities because they impede commerce in our neo-colonial era. While an atheist and anarchist, even Chomsky has acknowledged that our tribal identities and our religious affiliations are perhaps the last remaining obstacles to the absolute hegemony of the alienating and dehumanizing oligarchs.
We Radical Traditionalists share with Anarchists and Marxists the broad conclusion that the decline of the contemporary world is rooted in the usurpation of power by corrupt bourgeoisie elites. All three of our positions (anarchism, marxism, and traditionalism) remain outside the realm of mainstream discourse precisely because corporate (liberal) interests dictate the limits of popular discourse. While both anarchism and marxism address the problem in secular, material, and reactionary terms, we understand this battle in its full metaphysical and metapolitical context. We, and we alone, strike at the root of Modernity.
The final step in the decline of the colonial corporate world order which has prevailed since the Age of Discovery isn’t my identity group voluntarily extinguishing itself to atone for its alleged wickedness. The final anti-colonial step is for our Western identity groups to fully rebel against and overturn this Masonic cabal in our own homelands, root and branch. To go along with “White Privilege”, “White Guilt”, and all that other garbage is to fall for our elites’ effort to transfer blame for their historical crimes onto ourselves. We’re an “indigenous people” who’ve been colonized and oppressed, too, and we should join the Global South, Eurasia, and the Far East in asserting our identities and traditions in a united revolt against the modern world.
