Dear Angry Young White Man,

You are forced daily to endure an entire system telling you explicitly that you are worthless, to see images designed to denigrate you, to marginalize you, to make your presence in the lands your ancestors built seem arbitrary and insignificant.

“2017 is the New 1968”:
The Latest in the War on Noticing

2,107 words

Those of you who are not fortunate enough to manage to avoid all exposure to mainstream media might have noticed a recent avalanche from the Democrat wing of the collaborator class extolling the similarities between the social and political upheavals of 1968 and those of the current year, the Trump era. Last November these same people were telling their “literally shaking” audience to brace themselves for the end of the world as an unprecedented darkness descended upon America and, because they are at heart small-minded provincials, by extension the entire world.

On Universal Nationalism

William Blake, The Ancient of Days, 1794

1,296 words 

There are two common positions within the White Nationalist community regarding various non-white nationalisms: there are those who support what Frank Salter refers to as “universal nationalism” (nationalism for all peoples)[1] and those who argue that this idea is naïve and that the assertion of any particular group’s interests is invariably a messy process which will more often than not involve behavior that cannot fit neatly into contemporary popular notions of political ethics. The first view is held to be true because it is seemingly ideologically consistent and, additionally, provides the powerful bonus of moral comfort which stems from conforming to the “golden rule”; Read more …

Preference Falsification & White Nationalism

2,521 words

Timur Kuran

One of the many interesting things about the election of Donald Trump is how spectacularly wrong the mainstream media were in their predictions. In part this was, quite obviously, loosely (?) coordinated psychological warfare designed to intimidate and demoralize potential Trump voters. But their predictive failure was also the result of a more organic phenomenon, one ultimately rooted in the same maelstrom of Jewish culture war that produced these coordinated efforts, but expressed in the concept of preference falsification, defined by the Turkish-American economist Timur Kuran Read more …
