Another Day in Zone 1


I love raining on parades, and I’ve been accused once or twice of being a reflexive contrarian. But I can’t bring myself to hate on “America” all that much today.  It’s not because I entertain a tiny sparkle of patriotism or hope for the Union. I don’t. This regime is dying, and everybody knows it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an “Evil Empire”, the “Great Satan”, or those “Damn Yankees”. It’s not the enemy because it’s not capable of standing in our way, or in anybody else’s way. As we speak, “America” is being trounced by impoverished and illiterate nomads, and our own failure to trounce it here at home lies squarely in our own lack of vision and mobilization.

We're #1!

This Fourth of July, allow me to put the “meh” in America. Loyalty to it belongs in the past, a past where it was arguably synonymous with our identities and worthy of investment of our hopes and dreams. But opposition to it also belongs in the past, a past where the state of technology dictated that this administrative district would define our daily lives, experiences, occupations, hobbies, identities, and subcultures. This government is no longer capable of devising the Interstate Highway system and utility infrastructure; it’s struggling to maintain the ruins of what already exists. This government is no longer capable of fighting world wars; it’s retreating on every strategic front. It’s no longer capable of stopping domestic dissidents, either.

John Engelman’s recent article at Alternative Right, “What Will the Future be Like?” explored George Orwell’s proposition that politics is a relatively simple function of military technology…

Orwell thought weapon systems determined government. He wrote that when the battlefield is dominated by weapons that are expensive and difficult to master societies and governments are authoritarian and hierarchical. When the battlefield is dominated by inexpensive weapons that are easy to learn how to use, democracy has a chance.

Eisenhower shared a similar foreboding in his landmark farewell address.

Both George Orwell and President Eisenhower were more correct than incorrect about the incipient danger of the monolithic military-industrial complexes which dominated and controlled the world up until just about 1984. But like those feisty Velociraptors in Jurassic Park, life is gradually finding a way around these expensive and complex military technologies, …and the vast and complex institutions they entail. Terrorism is one such development, empowering lone individuals or small cells with little resources to inflict quantifiable damage on military-industrial superpowers. Improvised Explosive Devices are another example, targeting the supply networks and vulnerable infantrymen along those supply networks rather than the US military’s invincible doomsday contraptions themselves.

The Internet and related technologies have broken the institutional monopoly on the dissemination and framing of information. Bitcoin and related technologies now threaten to subvert the globally centralized monetary order. An institution as massive and sprawling as the United States government was an optimal locus of power in the 20th century, but will not be agile enough to face the challenges of the 21st century. More nimble tribal collectives and social networks will become the loci of power and social change in the decades to come.

It will actually matter once again which religious denomination or social clubs you’re affiliated with, because they’ll replace the military-industrial complex as the source of jobs, welfare, entertainment, and even public infrastructure investment. In other words, the normal and natural human condition will re-emerge after having been suppressed for generations. Packing and sorting humanity into arbitrary administrative districts, like slave drones in a sci-fi flick, has been the dream and goal of the cosmopolitan oligarchs in command of the vast military-industrial super-states, but they’re rapidly losing the leverage to manifest their dystopian scheme.

America will remain #1, at least in the telecommunication country code database. It’s going to stay put for many decades to come, on elementary school wall maps and on identification cards for traveling, but that’s despite the paradigm shift away from it. United States citizenship is rapidly dwindling from a cardinal marker of one’s identity down to mere administrative trivia. It’s been happening for decades and is pretty much a done deal, though White Americans in flyover country are only beginning to suspect that perhaps the vast mobs of foreigners and minorities aren’t eagerly assimilating into their Anglo-American social fabric as they other waves of immigrants before had done. They’ve brought their own fabric, and founding stock White Americans are merely one patch in an AIDS quilt of alien identities spanning the continent.

There’s nothing stopping us from forgetting about tearing off our own little patches and working toward a better future for our families and communities. “America” can’t help us do that, and “America” can’t stop us, either.

    I’m skeptical about all these confident assessments of America’s impending demise. Wasn’t the same thing said in the 70s? And I can remember reading a year before the Gulf War that America would never be able to go to war again – the population would never be up for it. Well, we did and actually loved the Gulf War!

    The US will be fantastically rich for generations to come. The US has over 10,000 nuclear weapons and all kinds of high-tech weapons in the cue. The US has the ONLY currency the world trusts. The US and the UK retain a reputation for honest dealing in financial and legal matters that no one else can really touch (at least not on a grand scale).

    I do agree it will be harder for “them” to maintain control over the central “narrative” of our time, as social media and the internet is destroying their monopoly. But the basic power of America, it’s huge, raw, wealth and social capital, will go on indefinitely.

    Yes, I am probably hyping it a bit on the positive side, but I’ve heard so many Impending Doom or Inevitable Failure predictions. Perhaps the real key is WHO will be in control of American’s massive wealth and power in the future. Whites (real Whites, not traitor Whites) may have a bigger shot at that control than they currently imagine.

      Jason,

      I’m skeptical about all these confident assessments of America’s impending demise. Wasn’t the same thing said in the 70s?

      I have no choice but to make the broad prediction. According to my “model”, a political entity’s success is a product of its optimal application of its cognitive capital to its available resources. “Optimal application” is comprised by cultural degeneracy, as disease-infested and impulsive scumbags from broken homes don’t produce as much wealth for society as wholesome traditional folks. “Cognitive capital” is compromised by the demographic trends we’re all familiar with. The United States has been rapidly burning through its advantage relative to other nations in natural resources, though I’m generally optimistic by movement standards about natural resource development in the near term (next few generations).

      I’m not operating on some poetic, sing-song “They acted a bit like this before Rome fell!” line of thinking. I’m operating on a formula which predicts that things would begin gradually declining in the 70’s and build momentum from there. The tsunami of cheap and productive East Asian labor into the global economy helped mask the decline, and technological advances helped mask the decline. Those processes are slowing down, while the decline is speeding up. The net effect is that the decline which actually began in the 70’s is only becoming apparent now.

      The US will be fantastically rich for generations to come. The US has over 10,000 nuclear weapons and all kinds of high-tech weapons in the cue.

      Can you explain what the added value of nuclear weaponry is, militarily or economically?

      The US has the ONLY currency the world trusts.

      This has slipped a little bit in the past decade, and is liable to slip more as America’s fundamentals slip.

      The US and the UK retain a reputation for honest dealing in financial and legal matters that no one else can really touch (at least not on a grand scale).

      Very true and not noted often enough. I believe this faith is invested more in the Anglo-American elite class than in the US and UK governments themselves, with those elites no longer being as synonymous with our political and economic institutions as they had been.

      Yes, I am probably hyping it a bit on the positive side, but I’ve heard so many Impending Doom or Inevitable Failure predictions.

      My article claimed that there will be a gentle gradual decline of the federal government which will be largely imperceptible to the general public. I don’t feel my work is doomer porn.

    Matt,

    “Doomer Porn!” I hadn’t heard that term, that is a good one. Your piece is NOT that. On the nuclear weapons, I can only look at it from an amateur’s perspective. It must certainly be useful in intimidating governments and populations around the world. It is widely accepted that once a country goes nuclear, it makes it much harder for enemies to invade due to the potential for a massive response.

    A small all-White country would be in a precarious position if it didn’t have nukes. If a nation decided to go pro-White, how long would it be before a pretext for war was established by our current elites? Our elites would love a hot war with Russia and if Putin didn’t have a big arsenal of nukes, I’m afraid we’d be in such a war.

    So, basically, the ability to take out a city or kill several hundred thousand people in an hour, must represent a real form of power.

    On economics, I suspect our position as world reserve currency is connected to our overwhelming military forces, including nuclear. No one doubts the US will be around and will be sovereign for decades to come. That makes the US a safer place to invest. People have no doubt the US will remain number one in military and perhaps economics for a long time, which makes others more likely to use our currency. And when the world uses your currency, you can, in effect, screw the world in a variety of ways (and we do).

    This is not best written response but hopefully it gives you an idea what I mean.

We're #1!
