It is important for White Nationalists to visualize what victory would look like. There are really two answers to this question. The ultimate answer is our vision of Whitopia, the society we want to create. But before we build Whitopia, we need to achieve a victory over the present political system. Read more …

White Nationalism, the Alt Right, & the Alt Light

1,550 words

There is a lot of confusion about the relationship of White Nationalism, the Alt Right, and the so-called Alt Light.

The “Alt Right” is a vague category that encompasses different tendencies of thought united by their rejection of mainstream conservatism. White Nationalism is one such tendency, and the Alt Light is another.

The Alt Light is defined by civic nationalism as opposed to racial nationalism. Read more …

Porque Ramzpaul está en lo Correcto
(& porque no importa)

Ramz1,696 words

English original here

Ramzpaul está básicamente en lo correcto al quejarse sobre el ala “1488” del Nacionalismo Blanco. Él esta obviamente frustrado con las señalizaciones puritanas y el LARPing[1]. Creo que se equivoca al acusar a los 1488s de ser plantados por el enemigo, aunque algunos probablemente si sean. Pienso, sin embargo, Read more …

Stand Your Ground:
Milo, the Alt-Right, & Mainstream Attention

2,386 words

It is hard not to like Milo Yiannopoulos. Watching him is like watching Firing Line if it were being hosted by Noël Coward. He is unquestionably a witty, bright-eyed, and charming individual. Politically, he inhabits the intellectual space in which White Nationalism and conservatism sometimes overlap. That is to say, he is a vocal opponent of feminism in its most flawed manifestations, opposes Muslim immigration, supports Donald Trump, and so on. Read more …

Европейцы образуют отдельную расу – белую. То есть быть французом, немцем, шведом или греком значит также быть белым. Значит, ни одна разновидность гражданского, языкового, культурного или религиозного национализма не достаточна для защиты европейских народов. Read more …

L’éternel débat entre les « avant-gardistes » [vanguardists] nationalistes blancs et les « majoritistes » [mainstreamers] fait à nouveau rage sur Alternative Right et dans The Daily Stormer.

Recientemente he tenido una epifanía de cómo los Nacionalistas Blancos podrían hacer un mejor trabajo creando un movimiento vanguardista genuino. El Vanguardismo, al cual nunca me canso de señalar, es y siempre debe ser una estrategia elitista. La historia está hecha por las elites. Los blancos, sin embargo, son dominados por una elite judía y plutocrática que, a lo mejor, es indiferente al futuro de nuestra raza Read more …

The Racial Law of Sociopolitical Thermodynamics

The Left has an easier time of things than the Right, given that the Left’s objectives run alongside the flow of increasing entropy, while the Right’s objectives run in the opposite direction. This underlying fundamental difference explains why attempts at “mainstreaming” and “working within the system” are doomed to ultimate failure, Read more …

The Smartest Guy in the Room

Headboard2,112 words

I recently had an epiphany about how White Nationalists might do a better job of creating a genuine vanguardist movement. Vanguardism, as I never tire of pointing out, is and must always be an elitist strategy. History is made by elites. Whites, however, are ruled by a Jewish and plutocratic elite that is at best indifferent to the future of our race and is at worst intentionally supporting policies that are leading to our simple biological extinctionRead more …

Vantard Strategies

1,966 words

marvin

Attack!

My recent article “Vanguardism, Vantardism, and Mainstreaming” was directed primarily at mainstreamers. My goal in distinguishing between genuine vanguardists and “vantards” was to force the mainstreamers to focus on the substance of the vanguardist position, which I think is entirely defensible, rather than on the non-productive strategies of the vantards, Read more …

Vanguardism, Vantardism, & Mainstreaming

Hermann Anton Stilke, Joan of Arc, 1843

Hermann Anton Stilke, Joan of Arc, 1843

2,149 words

Translations: French, Russian (excerpt)

The perennial debate between White Nationalist “vanguardists” and “mainstreamers” is raging again at Alternative Right and The Daily Stormer. I think the discussion would be clarified by introducing a third category: “vantardism,” which is a combination of “vanguard” and “retard” and refers to stupid, counter-productive forms of vanguardism —  Read more …

Against Mainstreaming

In a country where Israel is widely unpopular in the political mainstream, the Sweden Democrats cleverly co-opt themselves in search of what? Credibility?

In a country where Israel is widely unpopular in the political mainstream, the Sweden Democrats cleverly co-opt themselves in search of what? Credibility?

1,120 words

Some in the “movement” – including some “movement intellectuals” – are championing the concept of “mainstreaming” and cite France’s Front National (FN) as a sterling example of this paradigm. After all, as these “movement” think tankers report, the FN, it seems, is these days saying it doesn’t matter if the French become a minority of the population of France.

Yhdistä itsesi ääriainekseen

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

Suomentanut Jukka Hakola

English original here

On olemassa katkeamispiste – jotkut saavuttavat sen myöhemmin kuin toiset – jonka jälkeen yksilöä ohjaava moraalinen kompassi tekee aidon pesäeron valtavirran yhteiskunnallisiin normeihin. Suhteeni statukseen ja arvostukseen on aikaa sitten vapautunut noista normeista, ja tänään vaikutan pienessä ja kieltämättä vaikutusvallattomassa yhteisössä, joka koostuu heimo- ja traditionalistiveljistä.  Read more …

Link Yourself to White Nationalism

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

772 words

Finnish translation here

There’s a snapping point–some arrive at it later than others–beyond which one’s compass of esteem is truly decoupled from popular societal norms. My own sense of status and respect has long since broken free from that orbit, now revolving around the admittedly small and powerless world of tribal and traditional comrades.

While it once required an act of social courage to stand for our identity and interests, I now embrace the denunciations and attacks as badges of honor. Read more …

Why the West Will Go Under

3,167 words

The life cycle of a civilization is an extraordinarily complicated affair, subject to a thousand changing influences. It is all too easy for analysts, by focusing their attentions on various of these influences, to reach differing conclusions as to the state of health of the civilization they are studying. This is as true of Western civilization as of any other. Yet there are trends, clearly observable in the West today, which, if not reversed, must inevitably dominate all other influences and bring about the demise of the West. Read more …
