Can You Drop Out?

4,103 words

Simply to survive, whites require state power. The ways we obtain it, where it should take place, what ideas or culture it should be based on, and how exactly we are going to get there are all up for debate. State power will be the last step of a political, metapolitical, cultural, economic, and military project that will last for many years. Nonetheless, it is a necessity.

This sounds like work, including work that is dangerous, work that is difficult, and work that is boring. So why bother? Why not retreat to the catacombs, crack a brew, and wait for it to all crash down around us?

What happens if we do nothing? What happens if you do nothing?

White Americans believe no unhappy end is possible. Maybe they’re right. Let’s be honest – regardless of what happens politically, white people will disproportionately be counted among the wealthy, educated, and powerful members of society as long as they exist. Opponents of mass immigration have pointed to societies like Brazil as the inevitable result if present trends continue. Of course, Brazil is essentially ruled by whites, most of whom occupy the dominant positions in major corporate and financial positions. In South Brazil, there are prosperous communities of German Brazilians that still hold to the traditions of the old country. If the future America looks like Brazil, whites may still be able to get good jobs, move to reasonably peaceful white communities, and generally live their lives.

Let’s go even further and look at South Africa. Life is, in many ways, better for an affluent South African now than it was under apartheid. There is rampant street crime, but there is no active terrorist campaign. International travel and global business relationships are easier to maintain, so your economic opportunities are greater. You don’t have to deal with liberal protesters wherever you go, your rugby team can participate in tournaments, and despite abuses, the ANC government has not been outright seizing your wealth or nationalizing corporations. Even though it’s horrifying to see the head of an ostensibly civilized country dancing around in Zulu war gear to celebrate his acquisition of yet another wife, Jacob Zuma does still describe the Afrikaners as the only whites that are truly African and even praised the white settlement of Orania. Whites still control a disproportionate amount of financial power within South Africa. And there are still entire neighborhoods and regions where you can escape from diversity, if that’s what you want.

Technology will still advance. IPhones will keep getting better. We’ll have driverless cars soon enough. Even in the midst of a crushing recession, crime is down. Exciting medical developments are just over the horizon, as the internet makes it easier for skilled researchers to share information and research. If you study hard, keep to the straight and narrow, go to a good school, and keep your head down, you can still get a good job and provide for a (small) family. While the direction of the larger world can cause frustration, it’s unreasonable to become personally offended by broad social trends.

“The Collapse” is possible, but more likely, things will just drag on as they always have. If you read white advocates from the 1960s, or the 1980s, or the 1990s, all of them seem to be predicting that the end of the liberal system is right around the corner, and yet, here we are. So why should you care? If anything, now that mainstream American politics is a lost cause, the smart move is to drop out. Make money. Live your life. Right?

The problem is they are not going to let you. The problem is even what I say above will not last forever. It may not even last our lifetimes. The dominant Western global economy the white South Africans sacrificed their country to join won’t be around much longer. It’s going to be increasingly difficult to squeeze out any kind of private life whatsoever, and even if you do, it can be taken away at any time. Things really are changing this time – not as sudden as we would hope, but changing nonetheless.

The Retreat of the White West

White nations still constitute the global center of both military “hard power” and financial and cultural “soft power” in the world. Despite the ongoing demographic dispossession, all of the leading powers of the world outside of Asia have white majorities, including the European Union, the United States of America, and Canada. While whites in these nations are denied effective political representation as whites, the existing demographic situation makes it difficult for the government to move too far in targeting whites on racial grounds. If anything, anti-white racial preferences in the United States are actually on the retreat in the legal realm, and policies such as reparations for slavery are still utterly unthinkable.

This will change. Whites seem to believe that as they become a minority, their own universalistic legal principles will endure. Unfortunately, we have existing models of Western or quasi-Western nations that that retreated with staggering speed from the First World once the demographic situation changed. The bread basket of Africa, the land of hope and glory that was Rhodesia, has collapsed into the apocalyptic nightmare of Zimbabwe within decades, without troubling the sleep of either black African nationalists or white liberals. South Africa’s basic infrastructure has already begun to fail, and the white minority is still punished with discrimination in jobs, education, and even charity. The poverty rate has, not surprisingly, skyrocketed among Afrikaners, and the farm murders are familiar even to Genocide Watch. While many white South Africans still enjoy a great deal of wealth, their position is precarious and getting worse all the time. Many have already fled.

These are only minor examples. James Burnham, in his seminal Suicide of the West, begins by describing how a map of “the West” would show call, hard, objective retreat for the last century, and the process has only accelerated in recent decades. French Algeria, once a center of Mediterranean culture, has regressed into Islamist primitivism after a civil war that killed hundreds of thousands. Lebanon, once home to the “Paris of the Arab World,” is now known for terrorism, slaughter, and the occasional Israeli military intervention. While I actually have a great deal of sympathy for Francis Fukuyama’s “End of History” thesis, we can point to nations throughout the world that are actively regressing into barbarism, re-entering “history” in the worst way.

Mark Steyn points out in his books and writings that the British Empire of the 19th century was closer to a real, functioning multiculturalism than anything the world has today. Aside from the highest levels of business and finance, cosmopolitan whites are actually far more restricted in their travels than they would have been in the mid-20th century, or in the 19th when small numbers of white men controlled vast empires. States are not turning to the West for guidance – they are regressing to their ancestral patterns, with a thin layer of technology on top. As Steyn again notes, it is a strange triumph for globalization when Africans are using the latest cell phones to spread rumors that witches are running around stealing people’s genitals. Contra Christian Lander, we can point to specific places around the world where there has been a bad ending for whites that developed within the span of a generation. Objectively speaking, it was even bad for the nonwhites who lived there.

More importantly, we can see this happening within the nation-states of the West itself. Obvious examples include Detroit, Camden, or East Saint Louis, urban wastelands more definitively destroyed by what Paul Kersey calls the “Black Undertow” than by the most fearsome neutron bomb. Tragically, this is also taking place within Paris, Malmo, and the capital of Europe itself, Brussels. While whites are aggressively re-gentrifying some urban locales, like Washington DC, the overall pattern is that of retreat. Rather than smoothly navigating a globally connected world of megacities, urban whites will confront a the future that looks more a shrinking map of neighborhoods surrounded by no-go zones that even the police don’t dare enter. Perhaps most importantly, once these areas fall to demographic aliens, they do not become postmodern liberal paradises in the mode of Portland, but aggressively xenophobic and parochial colonies that systematically exclude rival tribes from political power.

The destruction of the white working class and the squeeze on the white middle class is so obvious that it only has to be mentioned in passing. Even though President Obama justified his “shovel-ready” stimulus programs by talking up infrastructure and construction jobs, whites are being excluded from these kinds of positions because of a mass influx of Third World labor. Partially this is because whites (as employers and employees) simply cannot compete against illegals who are paid under the table, have their families and businesses subsidized, receive welfare benefits whites cannot obtain, and have full time activists working exclusively for their interests. More than that, however, it’s that a society based on cheap credit, low interest rates, high rates of consumption, and low rates of savings values cheap, low-skill labor more than high-skill labor. All products, from staplers to houses, are built to be disposed of in this society, much like the “labor” who build them. Skilled white laborers and workers capable of making products that last or handling white collar work efficiently are not valued.

The larger impacts on a society (or whether the result can even be called a society) will be addressed later. Let’s say you don’t have to worry about the proles. There will always be a desire for elite lawyers, or brilliant software developers, or skillful financiers. Let’s say you are even one of them. Why should you care?

Even the Privileged Won’t Survive

First, off it bears repeating that you can be destroyed at any moment, regardless of your position or respectable background. Thilo Sarrazin was a central banker, a member of the Social Democratic Party, and a pillar of the German establishment. He mildly dissented against mass Islamic immigration into Germany, couching his argument in terms of Enlightenment values and seeking to defend the interests of Jews. It didn’t make a difference – he was attacked as a racist and an anti-Semite anyway and he suddenly became disreputable.

Just keeping your mouth shut isn’t enough. Something can give you away. An overheard joke, a glimpse at your internet history, a spiteful ex-girlfriend, or a million other unfortunate incidents can take away the work of a lifetime. Even if you actually are a committed egalitarian, it may not matter. They can just make something up – and the Google results labeling you as a “racist” will never go away. In this society, you live at the pleasure of your enemies, and while they may keep you around if you can create value, they can dispose of you just for the hell of it. You have to ask yourself whether it is worth living like this.

Secondly, the marginal costs are gradually increasing. Perhaps you are incredibly smart, talented, and creative. Unfortunately, so are a lot of other people, and this society does not value achievement so much as cost effectiveness You may be a better programmer than anyone else in your company, but that doesn’t mean you’re are immune from outsourcing if it is determined that there are Indians who are only 90% as good as you, but can work at 80% of the cost. It’s no longer enough to be the best – you have to be the best and the cheapest, and you are competing on a global market. More importantly, workers, entrepreneurs, and business owners from other nations have advantages that you do not, from an unfair global trading system, to economic privileges dispensed by the American government, to simple ethnic nepotism in entire industries.

Beyond that, everyday life is simply becoming more expensive and harder to sustain. Public education is a joke unless you can move to a wealthy and white/Asian school district, and those are becoming fewer and fewer. Private schools are expensive. Homeschooling is an option, but both spouses may need an income to maintain a lifestyle that could have been maintained on an average job a generation ago. Even if you don’t have children, the onslaught of fees, regulations, rising rent, transportation costs, and the inability to rely on basic services mean you have to pay more and more to get less and less. Sure, you might be able to make enough money to keep it going, but you are being squeezed. The margins get smaller and smaller – in terms of job security, keeping ahead of the cost of living, and maintaining what advantages you have. At any moment, as the member of a politically powerless class, you can have everything you own simply taken away, as the government is already discussing huge tax raises and outright seizure of 401k holdings. Your intelligence, discipline, and hard work are not a competitive advantage in this society, as we get all of the costs of the welfare state with none of the benefits.

The third trend is the most worrisome. Even if you could count on being the smartest, the most efficient, and the most connected member of the ruling elite from the time you were born, that won’t last much longer. The gradual displacement of Western nations from the top of the global economy will have wide reaching social, financial, and cultural impacts beyond just fiddling around in geopolitics. All Americans, from high-flying financiers to the lowest members of the lumpenproletariat enjoy huge structural advantages just from being members of the globe’s dominant culture. Things we take for granted like speaking English, access to American universities, and a reasonably reliable and corruption-free legal infrastructure have real economic value. Even if you are poor and uneducated, if you can climb to the top of the American system, you have climbed to the top of the world system, and you have an automatic leg up just by being here.

This won’t be true much longer. America’s displacement from the top of the global economy is only a matter of time. The European Union has been bandied about as a Western successor, but the EU is on the brink of collapse, frantically trying to shore up the crumbling financial sectors at the margins (in nations like Greece and Spain) and even at the core (France, Italy). The United States of America has defied repeated predictions of decline and remains the economic superpower, but the country’s debt situation is worse than Greece and barely avoiding recession seems to be the new normal.

The future belongs to the rising Asian powers which are ethnically homogenous, increasingly nationalist, and impatient with or indifferent to Western rhetoric about human rights or free trade. While the West alternates between Islamic sharia in its courts or publicly funding the sex changes of illegal immigrants, China is quietly colonizing the entire African continent and securing trade relationships in Latin America. While India is an English-speaking nation, there are signs it is reversing from an alliance with the West to trade partnerships with other Asian powers. Long established cultural patterns are collapsing, as even Australia’s ruling party has announced plans to jettison its British and Western identity to embrace an Asian future.

Let’s think about what this means in practical terms. Financially, it means that whites and Jews will find it increasingly difficult to dominate the global financial system. The state driven model of Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and most of all China will close out Western competition. Asian populations also have no problem using ethnic nepotism to staff the leading ranks of their corporations. As the West itself has been (deliberately) hollowed out of industry and the white workforce is being replaced by unskilled, Third World peasants, it’s unclear how the West will be able to compete. A number of the structural advantages Western nations (especially America) enjoy, such as control of the Internet, the English language, a reputation as a “safe harbor” for investments, and political reliability will continue to decline. As the First World moves into the Third World, the economic situation will transform, as local elites will owe their wealth more to political connections rather than creativity and banks and investors from outside the country will ultimately control the country’s fate.

America’s ace in the hole is the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency. However, things which can’t last forever, don’t. It won’t come during Obama’s second term; it probably won’t even happen in the next decade; but at some point, it will cease to be profitable for the rest of the world to go along with America’s economic manipulation. The balloon officially goes up on the day that occurs.

America’s energy reserves could provide another lease on life, but this is misleading. Believing that the country will be able to use them effectively assumes that the American political system is capable of efficient administration, which is far from certain. More importantly, it could also lead to the kind of “resource curse” that has plagued African and Arab nations which grow dependent on resource extraction and an authoritarian government dispersing the spoils. After all, it’s not like Russia has been able to transform its vast resource holdings into a dynamic, corruption-free economy.

While White Nationalists discuss the demographic threat of blacks and Hispanics, such populations are incapable of actually displacing whites from the summit of the global system. They just drag us down. The global economic transfer of power to Asia is, in the long run, more important. It cuts whites out of the highest financial positions. Culturally, it undermines the classical liberal ideas like radical individualism, free trade, and open migration that have been promoted as “inevitable” accompaniments to the end of history. It also means the American cultural trends will no longer dominate global markets – “Gangnam Style” will become the norm for youth culture. While this is probably preferable to a world dominated by American hip hop, it will accelerate the drain of economic and cultural power from the West into Asia.

Militarily, while it won’t happen overnight, the United States will find it unsustainable to maintain the balance of power in the Pacific, having frittered away its strength in never-ending Middle Eastern wars. Key allies like South Korea or especially Japan may attempt to forge an independent foreign policy. The United States will gradually be forced to the margins in the areas of the world that matter, along with its all but demilitarized European “allies.”

None of this is bad for Radical Traditionalists and white advocates, as it opens up a great deal of space and opportunities for action (and I’ll take Gangnam Style over Lady Gaga). However, it also means it will be harder for individual whites to climb to the top within the system. It never was “our” system, but now it won’t be dominated by people who even look like us or speak our language. Success – real success – will be impossible.

Finally, all of this is taking place in an atmosphere of increasing social and economic control directed at whites. The internet and social networking makes it easier for people to be tracked and codified. While Europeans and Canadians are already familiar with political activism being outlawed, the affirmative action people at the Supreme Court are already paving the way for the First Amendment to be suspended in the United States. The loss of American control over the Internet, when it occurs, will also go a long way towards making it impossible for dissenters to voice their opinion. The passage of Obamacare, the expected rise in tax rates, the drive for global taxes, the crackdown on nonprofits, the restrictions on churches and community groups, and the increasing bureaucratization of everyday life show that James Burnham was also prescient on his prediction of the rise of the “managerial class.”

What is emerging is a global system of Anarcho-Tyranny, where nonwhite underclasses lives beyond the law, while even normal business transactions are closely regulated for whites. It’s not just that such a life is not worth living because it means total control by people who hate you. It means that the White Man or Woman will not be allowed to prosper, even if they follow all the rules, because “success” will become almost solely a product of central control, rather than hard work. Like in Atlas Shrugged, the laws are so extensive now that they are in place so the government can justifiably shut down whatever business or project they like. And as the global economy moves away from the West, even membership in the likes of Skull & Bones might not be enough.

Politically, while liberal whites (and Jews) can assume they will float to the top of the roiling Third World masses today, that will not be true tomorrow. More and more elements of the power structure will simply be closed off on account of color. In many American cities, regardless of how liberal or pro-black a politician’s position, the mayoral office and city council positions are reserved for blacks. The Supreme Court and congressional offices are also being reduced to affirmative action playthings. As both the private and public sectors or closed off, even the most capable and connected whites will have nowhere to go, with the most they can hope for is to serve as kind of kulaks in a system built around their dispossession.

Conclusion

A nation like Brazil is not the worst case scenario for whites – it’s the best. Things that are literally unthinkable today – such outright seizure of white property, deliberate hard violence targeted at whites, and legal exclusion from positions of power – will become possible for the anti-white Left within a generation. Dedicated as it is to defending the interests of capital, the Right will offer no opposition as the commanding heights of capitalism are increasingly occupied by nonwhites.

You can’t drop out. You can’t remain silent. You can’t work a job quietly and hope they will leave you alone. As hard as it is to lead a somewhat decent, respectable life in the America of today, it is only going to get worse. If you build a farm, they’ll just take it. If you live off the grid and get back to the earth, they’ll come and find you. If you try to leave everyone alone, they won’t return the favor.

There’s a thin chance that you might be able to squeeze out a decent living and pray to God that it won’t be destroyed overnight. But every single year, it will get worse. Every single year, you will be forced to rely more and more on your own resources, as society is increasingly dominated by deception and incompetence. Finally, every single year, the forces of hatred against you will be unleashed all the more.

We are reaching a point where studying in school, going to a good college, and being responsible with money isn’t an advantage – it’s a huge waste of time. The forces of destruction are accelerating and consolidating their power worldwide and there is not going to be an escape. It’s not just a question of being forgotten and despised after you are dead – it’s reaching the point where individual accomplishment is impossible in this world, in this life.

There is one alternative. It is the ethnostate. It’s being part of a people and a society with state power mobilized on behalf of the folk that make it up. It’s that or extinction – and unless you are already advanced in years, it’s not going to be possible to run out the clock in comfort.

You may not be interested in politics, but politics is interested in you. An unhappy end isn’t just possible, it’s inevitable. They are coming for you, your job, your family, everything you care about. The nature of this attack is outlined each day in the headlines, in the advertisements that mock you, in the ever increasing tax bills, in the dozens of encounters each day where you feel like a second class citizen in the land your ancestors built. You can give in to their system, accept their oppression, play by their rules, do everything you are supposed to do. It just won’t matter.

Struggle is not a choice. That’s inevitable. The choice is a desperate struggle for a white homeland – or the surrender to eternal darkness. And the worst part is — no one will care.

    Just want to say thanks, Mr. Hood, for this article. It’s nice to see such a wide ranging, open minded consideration of so many possiblities. It feels fresh.

    Here’s where I agree: The white middle class – especially the lower middle class – is indeed shrinking and is slated to disappear entirely. Some whites will scramble up, but most will be absorbed into an emerging mocha-colored US underclass that is largely dependant on the state, genetically too stupid to move upward socially, capable only of service jobs, and expressing an ugly, retarded pop culture. As the identity of this class becomes increasingly multiracial and vague, it will gain much of its cohesion by being anti-white.

    Where I disagree: I don’t think it’s at all clear that the EU is on the brink of collapse and I’m not sure what you mean by “collapse” here anyway. Collapse as in these countries plunging into some sort of economic crisis that will result in severe hardship for most average Europeans? I doubt it. I think both the US and Europe are in for a Japanese-style “lost decade” (that, like Japan, could take longer than a decade) of paying down debt and slow revaluation of assets. After that, I’m not sure anyone knows what will happen. But Collapse is certaily not inevitable. Perhaps a ratcheting down of the standard of living – hardly the End Times.

    I also disagree that Asian asendancy is inevitable. China has huge problems, perhaps the largest being the extraordinary amout of corruption that comes with having an authoritarian form of government run by a small political class. China will never move to #1 (whatever that means) until it embraces a form of goverment which is more transparent and accountable. China’s middle class plus the international capitalist class will demand democratic reform by refusing to invest in the kleptocracy, and if China’s political class in turn refuses, China will simply stagnate.

    China also has tremendous demographic and environmental problems. When China eventually liberalizes – as it must – these problems will actually get worse in the medium term as a host of political parties spring onto the scene and in short order muck things up even more. I wouldn’t bet on China being “number 1″ for quite awhile, if ever.

    Thus, the planetary center of gravity won’t shift to Asia, but neither will the US and Europe reign supreme either. Actually the stage is being set not for any single country or region to dominate – it’s being set for the Era of the Rising Global Brown Tide. The central struggle of this era will be the contradiction between the demand of the planetary brown horde for first world (i.e. white) standards of living versus the reality that (1) they are too stupid to acheive it on their own, plus (2) there are so many of them that the planet cannot provide them with that standard of living even if they were smart enough to figure it out. White people will factor into this struggle as the Brown Tide tries to steal what whites have, and/or force whites to work on behalf of the Tide. Plus, of course, the prevailing ideology of the era will be to try to mix whites out of existence in the process. In the face of this, our struggle is simple – we whites should be trying to simply to continue to exist.

    Regarding Hood’s “Conclusion.” The point I see underlying this article is a good one, that is, that the emerging system is anti-white in it’s very nature. All of the various redistrubitive measures of the Obama regime, the social engineering, the immigration policies – they’re all anti-white. It’s not enough to oppose them as conservatives, we should oppose them as white people who recognize that they harm us and will ultimately lead to LESS OF US. Hood fails to point out, however, that this argument is actually a very good point of entry into mainstream political debate on a whole range of issues.

      This makes sense to me. What also makes sense, if you aren’t in fact implying it, is that we need to stay politically/culturally competitive within the American and European political states.
      Most of us are aware of the visceral hatred of the Tim Weises and the Noel Ignatievs.
      If we restrict ourselves to just controlling an Ethno state or multiple geographically fragmented states here and in Europe, those who’ve hated us for millennia will likely be tempted to close in for the “hard kill” now directed solely at Boer farmers.
      We should aim for both ethno-states AND continent wide political viability.
      I’ve one comment on the tone of this article. It sounds like it’s pitched to enlist people into white nationalism via an appeal to self-interest. No one here I’m sure is in it for self-interest. We are here because we care about our people. And I don’t think we are going to recruit a million American white revolutionaries just or even primarily by an appeal to self-interest. We need at least a hard core of individuals who are driven by the spirit of self-sacrifice.

    This article doesn’t offer any constructive advice/solution. If you drop out of the system, you’re damned, if you work for the system, you’re damned. What’s the point of this article? Simply to induce despair? Be as coldly realistic as possible?

    That’s not necessarily a bad thing. But what’s the point of critiquing every path if you don’t explain offer any kind of alternative?

      The answer is in the first paragraphs: to commit oneself to replacing the system by building the white ethnostate.

        The point is that’s a long, convoluted goal. There’s no clear way to get that done. Is he suggesting we all become writers?

        The ethnostate could theoretically be more easily achieved if some of us drop out from whatever we are doing, and others develop into elites in our career/make as much money as possible, depending on where we are and exactly what that career is.

        We can hope we are dedicating ourselves to the ethnostate and do any number of things that may or may not assist in achieving it. The variables are too random right now to know what will accomplish anything, but I certainly don’t doubt that this site is contributing.

        I think this article is actually very helpful.

        It helps us take a step back and get things in perspective.

        Furthermore, this is a great one to send around to our neo-con “tea-party” family members, who know something is wrong in the world, but have all these misguided ideals of how to fix it.

        Mr. Hood has done us a service.

        Yes, I think I was in a good mood, and then this/reality fouled it all up. But now I’m back to normal and realize that a hard dose of reality is necessary every now and then (actually, very often so).

      The dropping out referred to is dropping out as an individual and working for nothing larger than than one’s own personal advancement. Working to advance oneself now while assisting the development of an ethnostate in whatever way you can is making a positive contribution to the solution. We will need the talents of those who work in the current society to gain money and power that can be directed into assisting the founding of the ethnostate. What is not viable is expecting to be able to drop out as an isolated individual (or family) and hope you will be left alone. You won’t be – you’ll simply become a more tempting target.

    We aren’t the only people thinking about something like a white ethno-state.
    Joel Skousen wrote in his survival guide “Strategic Relocation” that it’s best to avoid minority populations. He also stated that it’s common knowledge that high crime goes along with minority population.
    Since the election Skousen has also said that he thinks there will be pockets of free culture amid a general continent wide collapse. Skousen favors the Rocky Mountain West or, in the East the cumberlan plateau in East Tennessee.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRz1iGIyhlA

    Also James Wesley Rawls envisages a conservative/evangelical/Orthodox Jewish “redoubt” in
    the inland Northwest and Rocky Mountain region.

    Not that anyone here will favor living cheek by jowel with the Orthodox but we need to be aware of the Skousen/Rawls tendency. We might also learn useful tactics from them.
    Rawls seems to be right in that he thinks spreading a politically incorrest message is best done in a novel form. The novel of course is the approach Harold Covington also takes.

    I recently read a report in my local newspaper that 45% of the student body in School Board of my hometown is nonwhite, which was actually surprising beyond my wildest imagination. These “demographic changes” are coming on with a vengeance, although many people fail to notice it as it appears incremental; year by year, month by month.
    What is happening now seems to be the reversal of the situation in Europe at the fall of the Roman Empire. The invading peoples then were ethnically similar, although perhaps purer and more vital. Reinforcements from across the mountains cannot be expected this time.
    An ethnostate seems to be a faraway dream. It would take an awful lot of faith and a lot of manpower to get there. However it all begins with the simple desire to have a european society continue to exist in the future. This would seem a modest goal except for the fact that most of us, even nationalists, have not ever lived in one, and can hardly imagine what it would be like. A hundred years ago our cities were beautiful, and now they are ugly. The culture and education we have been fed has obliterated our traditions and thus our vitality, creativity and fertility.
    The movement to regain our sovereignty must begin within ever expanding families, groups and aggregations thereof. Without a youthful and healthy population there is no basis for political action towards an ethnostate. If the will is there, populations can increase exponentially in several short generations. All this would require only a rejection of our current piped in culture in favour of a creative engagement with our own traditions.
    In our historical situation the new vitality and lifeblood that we require can only come from within. I do believe that this can happen. A person looks asleep until he is suddenly awake.

    Hopefully your local statistics are skewed. White parents may be taking their children out of the public school system.

      I like the Amish as much as the next guy but I would favour a futurist/modernist culture rather than a hide bound inward looking one. What I am at pains to point out here is that an ethnostate cannot be built without the proper biological substrate. First we must build an “ethnostate within a state”, which involves a correctly educated, youthful population.

        I totally concur. We need to take over rural market town counties and influence the election of the local sheriff. Mostly we will have to build a private K through 12 or a least have a major voting block on the local school board.
        Those of us near retirement should plan to move, and invite our 18-year-old high school members on cc and stormfront to come start up a little business, which we will patronize. Of course we should also use White Rabbit “practical politics” on the locals.
        If the Amish can inspire loyalty to their ways among their young how much easier will it be to inspire ours without the sever austerity demands?

    This excellent article could be titled as “Consequences of being a White Minority”.

  9. Posted December 4, 2012 at 10:03 pm | Permalink

    Excellent piece! I see this article as a kind of abridged version of Alex Kurtagic’s Mister. Everybody having read it should forward it to his “respectable conservative” friends. It won’t change their mind instantly, but it sure will make their “it’s not my problem” argument ridiculous.

    Of course it’s their problem as much as it is ours. Since the end of Apartheid, the ANC mob hasn’t spared the neutral whites. Shutting their mouth won’t protect them, and their refusal to join any white nationalist movement will make them all the more vulnerable when “the shit hits the fan”.

    Moreover, there’s one thing our “respectable conservatives” never take into account when they say that they (and their family when they happen to have one) have been fine so far: to whom are they going to marry their children if they continue to insulate in dwindling white neighbourhoods?

    If one thinks long term, he is forced to become a racial nationalist in a way or another. But most “respectable conservatives” I know don’t think long term… and they hardly think of anything but themselves. Even thinking of the future of their progeny seems abstract and far away to them.

    A good article, but I think it is ahead of its time. Mr. Hood writes with an eye to waking up Whites from their slumber in the spirit of early American revolutionaries such as Patrick Henry. The hardships and dangers for Whites outlined here are mainly still in the somewhat distant future, and probably seem a lifetime away for the average person, who has a short time horizon. Were this article to be reprinted in say 15 years time, it would ring much truer to the reader, though it would still be foreseeing things yet to come to pass. Print it again in 25 years, and it will then be current and timely.

    Jews are nation-wreckers. They guide nothing, they just destroy. Look at Germany in the 20s or today (jewish rule) and compare it to how it was under German rule in the 30s. America is now a third-world nation because of jewish rule. The same goes for much of Europe; look at what they did to Russia in 1917.

    Jews would be nothing if it weren’t for European civilization. They’d still be wandering around the desert raiding villages and lopping off heads if the Greeks and Romans hadn’t shared their knowledge of mathematics, science, and politics with them.

      You are fundamentally correct, but your bitter and incendiary rhetoric, reminiscent of the things going on at Stormfront, may cause some external observers to dismiss you — perhaps incorrectly, I don’t know enough to pass a judgment on you — as a conspiracy theorist basing his beliefs on probabilities rather than actual evidence.

      The truth is that most Jews, even among the power elite, are actually personally convinced of the inexistence of races and of the veracity of egalitarian theories. When a Jewish newspaper hack writes that Blacks can be uplifted into civilized and developed humanoids, he really believes it. There is no conspiracy, no hidden dark secrets, and no nefarious intentions. This thing can be easily verified nowadays by talking to a Jew on the Internet or analyzing the public behavior of the famous Jewish administrators of Wikipedia (Wikijewdia, for intimates). They really believe their stuff. They really believe Blacks and Whites have the same potential, that universal democracy is the best political system on Earth, or that the world is a better place for everyone, not only Jews, since the death of Hitler on the altar of Berlin.

      What about the double standards, you may ask? What about the Jews who support race-mixing and end up marrying a Jewess? I think it is no sufficient evidence to conclude Jews are evil manipulators. Cultural endogamy is a more rational explanation. Jews and Jewesses are attracted together because of common religion or common psychological traits. Most male Jews are ready to become “race traitors” at anytime, if their sexual partner is of high quality. The modern Jewish fantasizing on Asian girls is an example.

      Yes, Jews are ultimately Nation-breakers. But they do not wish that. It happens in spite of their will. They don’t realize they destroy countries. When the countries fall, they redirect the burden of guilt toward external factors (in 2030, when the American Empire will be dead, Jewish intellectuals emigrated in China will theorize on the causes of this downfall, and nowhere in their books will you find mention of the Jewish problem).

      My vision of the Jewish Question is similar to the one of Hitler and Goebbels. Jews are mindless parasites, dissimulating their intellectual vacuity with verbal prowess. Like voracious ducks or goats eating so much vegetation that they prevent it from growing again, they destroy the world through cosmopolitanism, mercantilism and miscegenation without realizing that their own standard of living will drop as a result.

    It seems significant to me that whites still hold the vast majority of non-government land in the U.S. Despite all the schemes, the red portion of the map is still much greater in area than the blue. I imagine that, in order to make this otherwise, if it is to be made otherwise, the land will, in time, have to be redistributed by force. Apparently, no amount of economic sabotage will root these pesky whites out. Control of this land represents a form of real power that, unlike cultural inheritance, cannot, evidently, be easily as captured through money-lending.

    Good piece, but a few issues:

    1) South Africa and Rhodesia are not just the beginning. Blacks are so much less capable of inducing civilization than other non-whites, that an America that is 40 percent HIspanic 15 % Asian, 15 % Black and 30% white or there abouts will be 10 times more livable than South Africa or Rhodesia, both of which were always over 70% black. The fact that South Africa has managed to survive for 20 years means a Hispan-Asian majority US will be able to limp around for awhile.

    2) Pointing the Thilo Sarazin as an example of the “them” taking down even the most elite isn’t a really good example. It is not as if Thilo Sarzin was some wealthy banker talking on the phone about race and IQ to a friend and then had his career ruined. He was a politician who wrote a book listing taboo traits and his political career has suffered greatly. He still is extremely wealthy and successful, and he ultimately got richer because of what he said. The book sold over 1.5 million copies. Whenever I hear some terrible story about someone getting their career ruined or going to jail because of saying/doing something un-PC they are either 1) involved in politics in some way or 2) are a prole. If you don’t write something “racist” on the internet, you will be fine.
    3) This is a minor point, but your point about all the increasing regulations will make more money for elite lawyers.

    I haven’t got rich yet but the one big lesson from playing the stock market (the penny shares) is that it is always something out of the blue. Always something totally unexpected.

    From even more years of driving the lesson is that when it all goes wrong we react on pure reflex. I’ll never know who was at fault but regardless of who ran the red light we all acted on reflex and what should have happened didn’t – and to this day I don’t know how we all managed to avoid each other; but we did.

    The lesson is that although things are bad and getting worse we just have to keep going and the more we read and the more we contribute the better honed our reflexes will be for when that bolt out of the blue hits. And if it all goes wrong just act surprised in front of the judge and exclaim, “White revolution! I thought he said light revolution.”

    A grim but plausible scenario, and here I was thinking I found a bit of decent news today. Specifically, the law professor Richard Posner blogged that secession doesn’t necessarily lead to economic disaster for the people seceding. This fact is important because the likely path to an ethnostate in North America will be through a secession / partition process. Posner argues small countries without large domestic markets can still thrive because of access to global markets. While true in the past, this trend probably won’t hold up in the future for white nations if there are no whites in the upper echelons of global finance.

    The ethnostate wont be built overnight. But it will be built. And the only way to do that is to start. I dont have any grandiose ideas about doing things quickly, but I do think that we are on the right track with the Pioneer Little Europe ideology.

      The ethnostate wont be built overnight. But it will be built. And the only way to do that is to start.

      An excellent place to start is by contributing to counter-currents regularly. Monthly would be fine, and today would be fine.

      April makes an important point; no one is coming to our aid. We seem to have forfeited such opportunities, at least for now. This gives us the opportunity to develop our own ethnostate, starting where we are, starting with who we are, and who we want our Posterity to have the chance to become.

      I dont have any grandiose ideas about doing things quickly, but I do think that we are on the right track with the Pioneer Little Europe ideology.

      PLE beats nothing, but I am not going to get into the dramas of Movement Past as to The One Best Way. My opinions concerning the importance of the Northwest Republic as (a) the proper analytical model, and (b) the only responsible temporal bridge available to us, are a matter of record. There is no inconsistency between our positions; I simply see PLE’s as useful stepping stone to the Northwest Republic.

      I think the shift towards counter-currents in terms of depth, breadth, and quality of support, as extraordinarily heartening.We are finally attracting those who are willing to start where they are, rather than waiting for Sky God Rockwell, Sky God Pierce, or Sky God Uncle Adolf, to return and save us from what we allowed to be formed in our midst.

      Incidentally, we already had an implicit ethnostate develop. It was called Suburbia.

      This time, we can Do Better.

      Harold Covington, as always ahead of the rest of us, noted the importance of a religion in this enterprise; he said if he had it to do over, he would have started with a religion. Good idea. I have been working on some ideas for a Restatement of Christianity. Indeed, in my little thought pieces on alternative history, I have had David Eden Lane as the de facto Mayor and Preacher of the Church in the founding city of the Northwest Republic.

      We Can Do Better.

      Indeed, we must.

    Some areas are lot more bluer than reds. Take California for example, it’s already a white minority state compared to rest of USA, so any remaining whites in Calif. may be feeling the pinch as described in the article than those living in more white majority states who won’t feel the pinch for quite a bit of time.

      One, even STRATFOR admits the borders of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo have already been reconqured by the Reconquista.

      Two, I’ve looked at some of the election return data. The raw data suggests I repeat suggests the Divide is not so much Red State/ Blue State as it is Red State/ Blue Cities. Those look like two different worlds in the same greater geographic region.

      As Obama has declared his national policy focus will be on removing regional disparities – i.e.; getting rid of the line dividing city from suburbia, and allowing the City to destroy suburbia – this will be an exciting time for us.

      Suddenly, the ethnostate moves to preeminence in our thinking.

        Yes it’s basically urban vs. rural. Often it’s the urban megalopolises that dominates the politics of the state. For example, Chicago metro area politics heavily influences the entire state of Illinois. Likewise, the politics of the Twin Cities of Mpls. /St. Paul dominates the state of Minnesota politics. Same with Puget Sound metro area (Seattle/Everett/Tacoma) dominating politics of the entire state of Washington.

        A state with small towns and mostly rural areas, such as North Dakota (& perhaps Montana & few others) don’t have major city politics dominating the state politics.

        This ties into a theme I’ve addressed on several occasions, the view from your bedroom window in 2050, and what you did to make the world your Posterity lives in worthy of the best in them – and us.

        The Regional Planning Association did an analysis called “America in 2050.” It strongly supports your hypothesis; everyone lives in metroplexes. Reading between the lines, with the economic hollowing out of America, think of the banlieus of Paris, writ large. The one hundred million I repeat one hundred million Mexicans who are on track to merge with America pretty much define the demographic landscape, and the demographic destiny.

        A state with small towns and mostly rural areas, such as North Dakota (& perhaps Montana & few others) don’t have major city politics dominating the state politics.

        Two thoughts:

        One, The Big Reset will guarantee this pattern to hold. Without money, their power drops dramatically. The Internet effectively disintermediates the status quo, creating fascinating opportunities for small communities intelligently developed by people with a grounded metapolitical focus.

        Two, Northwest Republic.

    I so much enjoy Greg Hoods thoughtful essays and even as much his many equally insightful and intelligent posters. I’m just an average guy trying to figure stuff out and reading (and rereading) these many and varied views on the state of our condition and what if any are the possible solutions to be quite informative. Thanks to all.

    It seems Mr. Hood is suggesting a decade or more of mediocrity and dispossession will drag on and while some whites will continue to excel in success while socially and micro-geographically separating themselves, the majority of us (me) will be left to wallow in joblessness, irrelevancy, and more and more ethnically directed hate and discrimination?

    When the inevitable fall of the dollar occurs and a global depression descends I suspect it’ll be every man for himself, regardless of ethno-state gobbdygook talk. Being no more than average intellectually and in abilities I fear I would be just as dispossessed by a white elite as much as any other?

    It’s all very depressing.
