Patrick Le Brun’s latest article presents an attractive situational defense of American abortion policy in his Counter-Currents article, White Nationalists Need Planned Parenthood, Not the Pope. He relies on a compelling Christmas Carol-style montage of what America may well have looked like if abortion had remained illegal given the high abortion rates in the Black American community. It’s indeed frightening to consider, the haunting demographic spectre of forty more Detroits, but the whole line of reasoning is misleading and misguided, …and abortion is wrong.
Universal morality has become an epithet in identitarian circles. It’s become a codeword for pathological altruism, an excuse for colonialism, neo-colonialism, White Savior grandstanding, and White Genocide. On the lips of globalist clerics and kleptocrats, it’s synonymous with every fashion and flavor of social, political, and economic cuckoldry.
Universal Morality ≠ Mercantile Globalism
Universal morality has become synonymous with mercantile globalism over the past few decades. Aside from abortion, is there any way to tell Pope Francis’ speeches from Barack Obama’s? And even on that issue, can we know for sure whether the Catholic hierarchy’s pro-life position isn’t more due to its institutional imperative, as Patrick claims? The churches have been so eager to compromise every other aspect of traditional Christianity that their steadfastness in defense of demographically convenient lives does appear just a bit too convenient.
But it’s not a question of whether one adopts a toxic universal morality or a healthy particularism. The question is toxicity and health, not universality and particularism. Universal morality can be and historically has typically been healthy, inclusive of ethnic and racial preservation. Conversely, particularist morality is no guarantee of racial preservation. Imperial and colonial projects are typically particularist, and frequently manifest in supremacist social orders which are unstable, unsustainable, and just as lethal to the racial stock.
Whites in Latin America, ancient India, and elsewhere rode their particularist ethnic chauvinism right into the cannibal’s pot of their own extermination. Whether one’s a Christian, atheist, Satanist, Scientologist, folk religionist, whether one maintains that there’s a singular transcendent source of moral order or whether one goes for a situational humanist approach, it’s a simple matter of natural law and natural order that humans exist in tribes and families as surely as geese fly in flocks and buffalo travel in herds.
Christianity ≠ Mercantile Globalism
The proposition that one must betray one’s family and identity altogether in the service of an abstract ideal belongs to death cults, not living religions or adaptive secular moral memeplexes. The anti-Christians in the overarching identitarian cause are exploiting the subversion of our religious institutions to attack our religions. It is fratricidal, dishonorable, and easily reversible. After all, the majority of neo-pagans aren’t identitarian at all. Even the traditions which are supposedly particular to Europeans are dominated by dumpy middle-aged anti-racist women in sweatpants. Stunningly, even the materialist atheists who substitute Darwinian evolution for a traditional creation myth are more anti-White, on average, than your typical White Christian.
My aim here is not to reverse the accusation, but to neutralize it. A toxic notion which neither originated in Christianity nor relies primarily on Christianity has infected the entire West. Our Christian institutions are infected, to be sure. Christianity in general and the Catholic Church in particular have certainly become vehicles of destruction, but they’re in a convoy of vehicles which includes just about every institution in the West. Every subverted institution offers their anti-White spin in their own context and language, and anti-White Christians frame their genocidal project in biblical terms, but neither Christianity nor its secularized derivative habits of thinking and behaving are at the root.
Atheist Hollywood celebrities and Evangelicals alike are equally eager to kidnap non-White babies to status signal their anti-White bonafides to their respective peer groups, peer groups which have both been infected with an anti-White moral imperative which neither originated in Hollywood nor the Evangelical movement. The Japanese, only a couple generations removed from their martial heritage, with little Christian influence at all, are steadily succumbing to the same global disease of degenerate globalism. Anti-Christians are barking up the wrong tree.
Against “Family Planning”
For the human male to function effectively, he must internalize a taboo against masturbation. To the secular degenerate mind, this seems very silly, as masturbation doesn’t directly or obviously harm anybody. The taboo only makes sense from a holistic tribal and intergenerational perspective, as that’s the viewpoint at which the danger of self-gratification comes into focus. The individual male can barely grasp all the subtle ways that his decreased motivation to socially compete for status to procure and secure a mate–generating wealth, investing in his community, and providing security for his mates and offspring–drains the vitality out of himself and his community.
An analogous false pragmatism also exists in matters of family planning. To function effectively, the human female must be encouraged to understand reproduction as a transcendent duty, not a mere option to be considered in pragmatic balance against her ambitions, interests, and anxieties about the pain and sacrifice which comes with reproduction. To encourage women to think “pragmatically,” in selfish individualist and situational moral terms, guarantees that the women will ultimately prove barren, androgynous, and more interested in muscling into traditionally masculine pursuits than embracing their congenitally feminine prerogative.
In short, I’m skeptical about the prospects of purely secular and pragmatic approaches to moral questions, as without a transcendent orientation, the temptation for a male to hang out in his basement with his Internet pornography and idle hobbies will win out, just as the temptation for a female to go to college and putz around at being independent and economically successful will win out. Even within the White Nationalist subculture which is defined by its singular concern for the success of White families, the only ones actually producing large White families are the traditionalist ones. Even when one logically concludes that one ought to make sacrifices, the lack of a sub-logical mythic orientation typically precludes sustained self-sacrificial action.
To encourage fecundity in our communities, we must sacralize pregnancy and birth, not pragmatize it.
Against the Fever Strategy
One of the more obvious ways that the human immune system fights infection is with elevating the temperature beyond what the invasive bacteria or viruses can tolerate. The gamble is that the fever will kill the infection without killing you, and it’s not uncommon for a high fever itself to actually injure or kill people. Politically, that’s the basis of Patrick Le Brun’s argument for legalized and normalized abortion; sure it kills some of our children, but it kills even more of this competing population’s children.
In the reptilian calculus of the pathologically pragmatic mind, tens of millions of dead babies are morally acceptable presuming that the metric tonnage of slaughtered non-white babies pitchforked onto the scale outweighs the dead white babies. This seems like a good time to note that the men who generally promote this perspective are also generally the men who frequently note the comparatively minor infanticides and genocides of the neolithic portions of our sacred texts.
To put it bluntly, and at the risk of alienating our pathologically pragmatic identitarian audience, I would object to legalized abortion even if it did eventually entail our destruction as a people. Call me a moralfag. Fortunately for me, that’s a false framing of the moral conundrum.
Abortion isn’t the question.
The question is for White identitarians what the question has always been; sovereignty and separation. If our tribe is sovereign and separate from competing tribes, then the anti-abortion position will prove fruitful. If our tribe is not sovereign and not separate, then disparities in abortion rates will only buy us a few decades more time before we’re destroyed. No amount of self-harm or degeneracy with the hope that the self-harm and degeneracy will harm the other group more than it harms ourselves will break the fever.
