Greg Johnson on The Northwest Imperative & The Stark Truth

54 words

I took part in the most recent episodes of The Northwest Imperative, where we are joined by Kevin MacDonald to talk about the recent Northwest Forum (click here), and The Stark Truth (click here). I want to thank everyone at The Northwest Imperative and The Stark Truth for having me on.

Greg Johnson

    It’s nice to hear you on the Stark truth again. I have to say though that I miss the old intro music.

    I’m curious to hear Greg or the Cascadia boys’ opinions on Harold Covington and the NW Imperative. The silence is awkward.

    Ps. Thoroughly enjoyed both podcasts and my only comment would be re: population control. By what parameter is the US “over-populated”? Jumping into family unit control is too close to Stalin-Mao territory for me.

      A quick search on this website will reveal my views RE Covington and the NW Front.

      I’m in favor of strictly limiting immigration to get a handle on this country’s population issues, not in favor of regulating how many children a couple may have. Even so, 120-150 million people is plenty for this country.

    Why do people go for the dystopian aesthetic of Blade Runner? It’s the same reason that Fight Club struck a nerve by opposing a dark underground against an antiseptic consumerist world. Post-modern society can not meet the high and low needs for White people. By engaging in underground rituals, the Fight Clubber reclaims thumos (as noted in essays on this site).

    We didn’t get that 2001: a Space Odyssey future we were promised (16 years later and still no Moon base!). Blade Runner is the metaphor for the decay of civilization today. And like Fight Club, it offers an alternative by not buying into the system but instead carving out your own space. Rick Deckard is the knight errant navigating through all echelons on his quest per noir detective standard operating procedure, being loyal to his own vision. Blade Runner provides not only the lows of an uber-noir urban industrial wasteland, but also the high pyramids of technology where the Tyrell Corporation builds ubermensch or reasonable replicants thereof.

    The same for Dune and the various steampunk, dieselpunk and cyberpunk genres. They create worlds which make room for White minds and souls to maneuver. There’s a cottage industry of Dune artwork, games, costume design, electronic music, style, and now a planned third movie version. People are creating the worlds in which they would rather live as opposed to the world they’re stuck with. It’s much easier to take on the rat race if you look at it as venturing forth onto the mean sands of Arrakis.

    RE David Lynch’s Dune: on top of the steampunk, there is a certain fascist aesthetic to the movie. We see all sorts of monumental architecture, Sardaukar stormtroopers, and thumos generated knifefights. While the Atreides are the nominal good guys, there are enough high collared uniforms to make their officer conclaves look like the Prussian General Staff. And you see their troopers constantly in parade formations and calling their leaders “sir,” no feisty-sassy-non-conformists here to muck up the works. Dune is a world of leadership and discipline. The Bene Gesserit are into genetic engineering, consciously overcoming dysgenics as their goal is nothing less than the making of the messiah, AD 10,000. And there’s Doctor Kynes with his grand master plan to re-engineer the ecology of Arrakis, worthy of the greatest engineering projects of White civilization (like landing men on the Moon).

    Back in the 20th century, science fiction prepared White people to take on the stars. In the 21st, it’s about superior humans taking on the mean streets of dystopia.

    As a big fan of podcasts, I for the most part enjoyed many sections of these two. With respect to the northwest group podcast, I am gratified to see there is some sense about security, including vetting. As someone who lived through a period in which “movement” meeting security included exhortations of “let’s wear black so as to intimidate the audience” – without the slightest attempt to control who did and did not show up – this increased professionalism is refreshing. Keep in mind though that this is going to be an evolutionary process; the Left will continue to try and gather intelligence. For example, it is unclear how the anti-fa were “tipped off” for that meeting that was described; it suggests a leak. I don’t expect that to be discussed in public, but it is a warning that security will require constant fine-tuning. Having people serious about security, instead of Nutzis gibbering about “battle axes,” is a good start. Please keep it up.

    What I liked about the Stark podcast – and this is something Greg has brought up before – is a defense of city living for Whites. This contrasts to the typical “movement” dogma – of the Piercian and Mathewsian school – that city living by its very nature is degenerate, with Pierce badmouthing the “weak, soft, city bred Whites” among his own followers (i.e., the same people whose donations funded Pierce’s country living). Also refreshing is the admission that the reason why so many Whites go to the suburbs is the need to escape from diversity for normal family formation. As someone who grew up in a diverse urban jungle, facts are that cities as they currently exist are for the most part unsuitable for White children.

    The cyber-security crash course that Greg Johnson discussed would also be a useful online resource, if explained, as much as possible in layman’s terms. I’m talking at the ‘for dummies’ level, in my case.

    There is a need for this sort of thing for, e.g. Gen Xers who are otherwise sensible and cautious about protecting their identity, but have slipped through the cracks when it comes to I.T. education and just don’t have the technical chops.

    Always appreciate a new podcast, you don’t do enough. I’ve been keeping an eye out for the next one with John Morgan. Those have been great so far. I hope you both keep it up.
