Infiltration of the Dissident Right with fake leaders, shysters, hucksters, and lowlifes.

Perks, but what about responsibility?

Everyone wants to be someone important.

Forney with Aurini had a recent stream on Candice Owens and her rise to prominence via “grifting” in Conservative circles.  I will say that I don’t hold quite the antipathy toward Owens as others do and I specifically appreciate her role in helping to confirm what many of us already knew about Zoey Quinn – that she was harassing herself and making a virtue signaling false flag racket with it.

It however brings up an overall trend that’s been happening in the last few years and what I’m going to label as “Dissident Appropriation”.    We saw it with the anti-feminists on YouTube, the Skeptic “community”, various members of the Red Pill communities, and in the Dissident Right in general.

What did we see?

Even in the Dissident Right as well as other associated spheres, you’ll notice there’s a crop of people – often anonymous or semi anonymous – trying to create a name for themselves.  It happened with the manosphere and now it’s happening throughout the Dissident Right at large.

People coming in to make a quick buck and trying to create a product – not a bad thing necessarily – but with little actual ORIGINAL thoughts and ideas. They just rehashed what had been circling in the various spheres from the abstract and intellectual writings of reactionaries to the Red Pill shock jock larger-than-life style bloggers.

It’s not just tradthots like Laura Loomer or anti-feminists like Shoe0nhead who are parroting Dissident ideas to a thirsty male audience, but “entrepreneurs” and PUA types who throw out a few pieces of common knowledge with a polished looking website in hopes of getting money from people who already are likely down on their luck.

Want to charge people for a boot camp? How about “Dating” advice?  There’s always self-improvement that involves making tons of money by writing edgy blog content because clearly, that is an actual feasible thing.  You don’t really need an actual job, nor the skills and experience that comes with having one for your future. Just buy their stuff and girls and lots of success will come your way.

That valuable experience, contacts, friends and network created by working various jobs – no matter how menial apparently doesn’t matter and isn’t needed. All you need is a blog and a phone.   Now some of you have been told all about this a few years back, but there’s a new wave of subversive elements who want to talk the talk but not walk it.

Yea, life is hard and while we can blame feminism, SJWs, etc for it.   instead of any real solutions however, here’s some self-help with some “alpha” like words and phrases thrown in to make you feel like it something much different.

Shysters, Hucksters, and Infiltrators

This feeding of false hope is horrible and despicable on a moral level – especially any that laments losing core Western values and whatever is left of that.  How can you build or rebuild social trust and social capital when your own sphere is being subverted to the point of that trust being destroyed?

What the hell are we doing?

Deliberately feeding false hope and supposed “freedom” to live any way you want to susceptible broken shattered men and teenagers is shameful as is avoiding alternative theories that newbies may want to consider. But the something 50% of what’s left of the Manosphere selling supposed self-improvement don’t care.  Encouraging hedonism and narcissism sells apparently as well as sex does.

It’s hard enough for freelance journalists and real entrepreneurs to make money, but somehow kids writing about their Tinder experiences with your hosting site from a beach in Thailand is going to generate enough income for them to become financially independent and able to start a family if they wish?

With what contacts and network? (Someone on  the stream mentioned earlier makes the point most of these people pushing this have already established passive income streams – like owning property they rent out – which they of course don’t disclose because their writing and books is making them all the cash.)

People criticize Matt Forney all the time, but he took down most of his books because he couldn’t in good conscious sell stuff that isn’t applicable to the internet world in 2018. Who else does that?  This is how you can tell how much someone cares about the people they want to engage with.

You wonder how much these other people really care about the supposed community there are “creating” content for.  Do they really care if their “consulting” and advice ends up destroying your life and potential future? I’m starting to think they really don’t.  Sure, don’t go to college and get a worthless degree, but move overseas and everything is suddenly going to vastly improve without a real passive income stream?

What about your future? Don’t look toward getting a wife and building a career as a wife and children will hold you back from being a lifetime bachelor sailing around the world banging 100s of foreign women – as will a stable 9-5 job.  It’s no secret much of modern society is arrayed against young men, but these infiltrators and hucksters are adding more pain to their misery and disguising it as self-help.

Of course these hucksters appeal to your inner “alpha” in an attempt to persuade you that being a true Machiavellian is something that you really want.   Take for example the advocates of the Dark Triad which want you to fork over 300$ for some kind of uber Volcano lair meetup so you can feel like a man by being in the presence of “supposedly” top alpha men.   Iron may sharpen iron, but is there any iron here?

300$ to feel like an Alpha

If you put on that mask for so long, do you become that monster eventually? It’s a significant question and you need to ask yourself if it’s worth the price – considering you might be selling yourself, soul, and future livelihood for something that may have no material, spiritual, and measurable payoff.

Unfortunately, these are elements in the “Dissident Appropriation” in which that occurs. It’s often in the form of people looking to create a niche for themselves, purely for the sake and feeling of being “counter-cultural” because there’s no Patreon dollars of real controversy to draw attention to make the shekels if you are parroting the usual mainstream views.

You end up with a Dirty Dozen of denizens and not knowing what they really think, if they are some kind of subversive elements, or if they have any loyalty to the people and spheres they are trying to influence.  From what we’ve seen with recent Bloodsports and the implosion of the remaining Alt-Right, many of these people seem to be trying to fly close to the sun to attain maximum exposure and are willing to backstab and destroy anyone in their way.

So much for a stable foundation to rebuild the West or present any kind of feasible foundations to stand upon.  You start to wonder if they ever really had those intentions in the first place.

Granted there will always be jealousy of those who make a name for themselves and get “recognition” and those who don’t – regardless of what community you associate with. Furthermore to be fair, what man doesn’t want to create a name for himself wherever and whatever way he can?

Well let’s examine.

The Cost of Fame

A serious question that I wonder if people ask themselves is, “Do you really want all this attention?”  Do you really want to be a leader and deal with the actual vast and harsh burdens and responsibilities that come with it?

What about the cost to your family and any possible future that involves a stable financial footing? How much do you really care about those closest around you who arguably are the most important?

As we saw with the ROK Meetup insanity back in 2016, there comes a point where controversy and attention becomes a negative thing that has real cost to your family and livelihood.  We point this out and these deviants who engage consistently in the dark arts of Dissent Appropriation call us cucks.   Yea, it’s real cuckish to want to build a stable future for your family and friends.

Internet fame might be fun, but it’s also a curse and if have a family or hope to have one, it becomes quite a bit harder when you are trying to build any kind of family and legacy in order to become any kind of “leader.”  Again there comes a point when you end up with too much recognition from all the wrong people and it ends up greatly hindering yourself.

This isn’t 2005.  Anyone and everyone is a google search away from a damning internet post or ill worded rant torpedoing their career or imploding their network of contacts built over 20 years.  Yea sure, maybe they should have chosen better “friends” and contacts, but that takes a huge amount of time to do. It doesn’t happen overnight.  (Neither do the alternative platforms those in the Dissident Right are trying to build.)

Often some of these “leaders” remind me of feminists who want all of the perks but none of the responsibilities that come with leadership. It ends up boiling down to accepting praise for what goes right and gets attention and blaming others for what goes wrong and blows up in your face.

That’s not leadership.

Leaders are front and center. They don’t just write the walk from their anonymous blogs. They live that walk everyday and show people how it’s done.  When things go to hell, they clean it up and don’t deflect the blame.  The buck stops with them and their lives are the example.

This isn’t a game or a scene that you can simply stop attending.  Lives, careers, and people’s ability to not live paycheck to paycheck are at stake here.  Once people have put their names forward, they are susceptible to all the deviants and viciousness of SJW types gunning for their jobs and looking to make hell on earth for the lives of their family members.

If you are going to be some sort of leader, you better be prepared to help your “followers” deal with the shitstorms that come their way due to your influence and guidance.  Being a real leader of any kind – assuming any level of morality — means that you don’t just take their money and run – you face the music with/for them with that said money.

Briefly Remembering Charlottesville

Consider what happened with Charlottesville and the supposed leadership of the Alt-Right there.  When everything went to hell, there was no around to accept any responsibility let alone help the people who were likely going to lose their jobs from the mere association. (There had been warnings about the movement and the leaders.)

Jason Kessler ran away and is hiding, Spencer disappeared, and Cantwell acted like a tough guy on TV to Vice, while later crying on YouTube once he realized he was in real trouble.  Totally white ubermench alpha right there.  Instead of being self-proclaimed smart tacticians and strategists,  they all ended up being indirectly responsible for that lady’s death – regardless of what you think of her and specifically in the eyes of the American public.

These “leaders” couldn’t even police their own – regardless of false flags or not – and now ensured that the Alt-Right label was left to actual Nazis and foaming white supremacist types on the Daily Stormer.  It’s hard to tell people you aren’t Nazis when people with the damn flags show up or end up committing murders, because actual Nazis weren’t denounced hard or extensively enough.  (Seriously, who the hell let’s Nazis show up to their events?)

Furthermore, consider the tactical failure in having a “rally” there in a VERY hostile city with a government and police force that basically did everything to ensure a riot and violence would ensue.   Of course they weren’t going to play fair and restrain AntiFa from attempting to kill whoever there they deemed a fascist.

Why the hell didn’t they plan a rally somewhere that WAS NOT in a liberal stronghold.  Sure, you might want to protect a statue, but was it worth the shattered lives of the guys holding tiki torches who can’t find regular employment now? “Blood and soil” doesn’t matter that much if you can’t afford to live.  (How the awful optics of this evaded the minds of Alt-Right leadership, I have no idea.)

All this over a damn statue.

Now they’ve found that out the hard way.  While AntiFa and all the rest of their slack jawed deviant supporters will rejoice, it just adds to the list of broken young men who now have even a harder life then before and will ironically make them even radicalized in the process.

What kind of leader allows that to happen to their “followers” if they actually care about them instead of just the “cause”?  This is a very serious issue.  Very recently one of these young men – Andrew Dobson – who was there and not even a WN or even a follower of Spencer or these “other leaders” was doxxed and was harassed so much that he recently committed suicide.

Guilt by association. He made have been on the “right”, but the penalty for being near this rally has literally been fatal. Sure some henious assholes on leftist sites will rejoice, but who will comfort his family and friends?  It’s not just maddening, but it’s depressingly sad.

Again, this dude essentially lost his life over a damn statue.

One major criticism I heard of Richard Spencer – who isnt really the “Hitler” people make him out to be – and people like him is that they enjoyed the attention and the recognition of being “organizers”, but had little to offer both in terms of responsibility and aid when the Charlottesville debacle occurred.

Most of us already knew that most of the people – specifically leaders – in the Alt-Right were ready to betray and step on one another to be famous in the eyes of the Media.  (Not sure that’s a prize really.)   But what did we really expect with an ideology that shuns any real moral foundations to be replaced with some weird nihilist post modern “might makes right” crap?

N.T. Carlsbad from Therimdor Mag made this damning observation about what was left of the Alt-Right:

 “After the Enoch doxxing, after Charlottesville and now after the implosion of TWP, there simply is no fooling anyone. The illusion has been shattered. “Alt-right” is just a pompous synonym for white nationalist, and nothing more. The psychotic mania among the press that for some time drove them nuts about how the next-door neighbor kid drawing cartoon frogs might secretly be a member of an “alt-right” fifth column waiting for the right moment to ethnically cleanse minorities, has since dissipated and mellowed as the specificity of the alt-right has been made clear.

Andrew Anglin and weev no longer LARP as neo-Nazis, but as American nationalist MAGAmen, in response to this shift. With no enigma left to it (and it never got to the point of developing any real organizational capacity), the alt-right is now a tabloid media cash cow for the ADL and the SPLC to scare their donors into handing over those sweet shekels.”

I couldn’t have put it any better.  Stop following people who don’t care about you or anyone else.  Mike Enoch literally destroyed his life even further divorcing his Jewish wife – so he could prove his Jew blaming rants were legit. (Disclosure to you goyim, I found out I’m 3% European Jewish apparently.)

For what?

Now he’s alone and removed from a woman who seems to have loved him for some internet trolls and LARPers who don’t give a shit.  That’s not a life that you want emulate. Unless the leaders of a movement are willing to sacrifice themselves for you – like true leaders do – then you are wasting your time and your future.

These same people are still around and lurking in the Dissident Right looking for new targets and people to deceive and profit from – either for the sake of creating a name and recognition for themselves or for a sin as old as time – greed and the money that comes from it.

We need to ask ourselves, how much damage are we doing to people vs helping them?  What kind of identity are we forming? Yes, we know feminism and the excess of Modernism had wreaked havoc on the foundations of society and made it a hell of time to be a young straight male looking to succeed in life.

However are we just adding false hope to that miserly brew that they’ve already been thrust into?  We need to make sure people know the “risks”, while giving them as much advice, info, and knowledge from our mistakes and successes as we can.  If you become like Machiavelli, you might end up in a prison of your own – or someone else’s making just like him.

We are talking about fire and it burns – maybe for life if you end up with a mindset and worldview based on treachery, deceit, and a will to power with no moral restrictions.  Your soul can and is at stake when you expose it to this kind of lifestyle.

Perhaps at the core of this, one alternate explanation is the most depressing one; that some of the people being attracted to the Dissident Right by shysters aren’t being “taken in.”  They are willing participants who want to lie to themselves instead of put in the hard and long time to build something stable for their futures.

I suppose they will have to learn the hard way.

The Alt-Right Failed To Purge The Nazis And Now It’s Too Late

Charlottesville has been all over the news for the last few days and it’s big. It’s been on almost every Facebook feed expanding to people who aren’t even very political.  A common theme emerges.  The  Alt-Right = Nazis.  All those Nazi Larpers in the background with their swastikas, armbands, seig heils, and all of that nonsense have tainted what the alt-right could have been; what it should have been.

At this point, the Nazis and the “lulz” trolls can have the label.  Perhaps critics were right all along and Spencer’s supposed claim to the label ensured it was doomed from the start.

We’ve been trying to highlight for ages how vicious and dangerous AntiFa is. While they haven’t killed anyone and it’s probably a matter of time, some demented mentally instable nazi wannabe did.  He deliberately murdered a woman with his car in ISIS fashion.  That’s all people see, and it’s all they will see.

They wont see the vicious AntiFa violence there. They won’t see how the VPD not only stood down, but deliberately herded the “UniteTheRight” protesters into the path of AntiFa.  Sure enough, the police would vanish and leave the two groups to fight it out Gangs Of New York style.  This alone implicates that the authorities in heavily urban democratic cities are essentially cooperating with AntiFa.

Instead of seeing any of this, people see what was obvious – actual Nazis throwing up salutes, chanting “blood and soil”, and the works.   How can any sane person look past actual Nazi flags and not associate who ever else was there with being a Nazi.  Instead of kicking them out, you let them in.

We on the dissident right wanted so badly for the Alt-Right to become something. Now it’s done.  I associated myself with the Alt-Right for a time because I thought the Nazi Larpers were a small minority, just like the AntiFa are with the progressives.  I was wrong.  I’m not interested in denouncing them, just as the left isn’t going to denounce AntiFa. However, I can’t associate myself with them.

I enjoyed their trolling, the hillarious memes, and even chuckled at those terrible jokes that triggered the easily offended progressives to the point of Hillary herself reading them to a national audience. They were the new 1950s conservatives and we were the rebellion.   “It was the left’s turn for their sacred cows to be violated!”, we told ourselves.   We were the new anti-establishment. But that’s all we were.

What The Hell Have We Been Doing?

Rebels. With barely an articulate cause, because the “normies” weren’t worthy of wasting time for our glorious explanation.  That’s what the 1488 Larpers insisted in their glorious socialism.  We all thought they were just in it for the “lulz”.

Wasn’t building white identity supposed to be about building one that isn’t based purely on opposition and hate?  Instead they memed and kept whining about how their aren’t enough white babies, all the while refusing to bother to even take the first steps to attempt to create a family.

Yes, we have been saying that demographics is destiny. It is.  We must outbreed the left who keeps murdering their babies in the womb. Encourage the feminists to keep doing it.  Yet you ignored core strategy and the public schools indoctrinating the kids we do have.   Instead of throwing your weight behind men like Vox Day who are creating alternate platforms, you rallied to Spencer who has been a disaster for the alt-right every damn time.

You ripped on the men who actually tried to create families by marrying women from overseas for their horrid race mixing while you jerked off in your damn basements.   You stomped on Christendom and called for a return to paganism, ignoring the fact Christianity is what built European identity and made it great.   Well, you can have your weird cultish occult symbols.  That’s surely and identity that we need.

Their irony turned into sincerity as Common Filth pointed out.   It was with a horrid shock that we realized they actually believed all these things. They really did loathe blacks, jews, and minorities to the point of revulsion.  The hate had consumed them, their glorious Nazi identity and white identity based almost completely on opposition to others who were to be blamed.

Kind good hard-working immigrants don’t exist in their world. Diversity regardless of the reason is always terrible.  Hispanics are all criminals. My personal experience working and being close with them and seeing how many good people there are were all anomalies.  Yea okay.

Let’s get real here.   I have mixed race family, and I’m not just talking about my moms side and our Armenian halves.  My half-white/half-black cousins are twice the people than any of these Nazis and White Nationalists are. If push comes to shove, their well-being is my priority.  How’s that for punching right? How does it feel after you shits punching right every damn day about how we didn’t blame the jews enough or were too cuckish?

Instead of pushing truth, beauty, goodness, and the christian roots which made Western civilization, we ignored the Nazis as best we could.  It’s now to our detriment.  They were never the alt-right.  But with one protest that accomplished nothing, they took the label and burned it like the KKK did a cross.

Dickey Spencer claims victory while Baked Alaska may never see again and Heather is now dead.  Antifa or not, she’s dead.  Alex Fields who hit her, scared or not, will be raped in prison.  Lives have been lost and ruined for Spencer to have his “leadership” moment.   Forget the label. He can have it.

We Should Have Been Bold

It should be OBVIOUS that any movement that doesn’t purge Nazis is a non-starter. No sane person will have anything to do with it, let alone should.  Instead of that purge, interlopers in the Alt-right decided that somehow “Nazis” were on the right.  Somehow, someway those in the Alt-right actually believed the leftists propaganda of the last 50 years that “Nazis” are somehow right-wing.

You know, despite all the totalitarian and authoritarian positions that are held by many leftists today.  Jonah Goldberg made this point abundant in “Liberal Fascism“, but they couldn’t be bothered with it because he’s a jew.   We aren’t punching right. The Alt-Reichtards were never “right” to begin with.  Just because AntiFa is their enemy didn’t mean they were our ally.

What many of us failed to realize – myself included – was that many on the alt-right, particularly the White Nationalists, didn’t have any actual “identity” besides opposition to SJWs, BLM, feminists, progressives, etc.   Yes, we all didn’t like how “white” had become a pejorative and that white people shouldnt be ashamed or need to check their privilege.  This came from mixed race people like myself.  That should have been the sign.

As the Z Man pointed out,

Put another way, if being pro-white is only going to mean anti-black or anti-Jew or anti-Asian, then it is never going to be a useful identity group. It’s just going to be the nullification of other identity groups. That’s not a movement with a future, because it’s definition lies outside its control. It’s why feminism is curdling into a home for barren spinsters. It’s just a list of grievances. In order to avoid that fate, white identity is going to have to be a positive identity that defines itself, independent of the rest of the world.”

This is what the movement has turned into.  Constant blaming of Jews, Blacks, and every other group under the sun.  Those racial purists couldn’t even realize that not only do historical demographics constantly change – like they always have, but that it’s changing right now.  George Zimmerman was labeled a “White Hispanic.”

Articles are being published by crazed feminists about how lighter POC need to check their privilege or else they risk becoming white.  It probably won’t be long until mixed race individuals are thrown into the category.  (Remember that the Irish, Italians, Greeks, etc weren’t considered white until the 20th century.)

Despite this, they decided it had to be the core tenant. Insanity. Then the White Nationalists among us decided that Nazis were somehow acceptable, even though the Nazis historically didn’t mind killing and trying to subjugate the Greeks, French, Slavs, and Russians.   They weren’t even about bloody white supremacy!

Western European identity has been dying. Instead of figuring out why, blame was placed solely on blacks, jews, and all those other marginalized groups instead of where it should be: the heretical French Enlightement and the secularists that destroyed the foundations and burned the roots of what made Europe great.

Seriously, ask yourself? What is actually left preserving in Europe. A new identity will be born, but it won’t be one that can’t exist without other groups around to blame to fuel it’s existence. Christendom which built Europe is already being rebuilt in Africa and South America.

While you’ve been raving and ranting about their IQs, Christianity has been transforming the area. There are already more Anglicans in Africa, than in the rest of the world. The next pope will be African.  But no, you couldn’t get past the racial element.

Yes, we were with you for limiting immigration, securing the borders, diminishing the destruction wrought by globalists elites, bankers, and self serving corporations. We were with you in the fight to stop the feminist annihilation of the relationship between the genders and the nonsensical victim crying of social justice.   We were with you to fight back against political correctness.

We even tolerated Spencer’s vicious attacks and disdain of Christianity while ignoring the insanity of a “white ethnostate” in the US.  We sympathized with the vicious attacks wrought upon people branded “white” on a daily basis by progressives.  I will teach my sons (75%) white to be proud of their heritage, who they, and to never apologize for any actions of their ancestors.   I will however teach them the difference between Nazis and pride in who they are – something you couldn’t do.

But you had to let the Nazis larp with you.   Well, enjoy your label.  The people going out there to punch Nazis certainly will.  The label is toxic because you let it become so.

Signed a saddened member of the Dissident Right.

Do You Know Your Neighbors?

A lady on the morning news is a few streets down from me showing everyone the prevalent and widespread flooding from recent vicious storms. She talks to a few people nearby I’ve never met before.  Two of the girls want to drive through a newly created pond to grab breakfast.  Another guy is closely watching his half submerged house for flooding in critical areas.  I don’t know any of these people, yet they are my neighbors.

Why not?

Another day, another Trump headline.  Some shootings in Chicago again.  Crazy stories and revelations on the Drudge Report about a Russian lawyer no one’s ever heard of.  CNN with shady coverage.  Cringeworthy topless feminists trying to break up a Woody Allen concert.

Virtually every story I come across that I give attention to has no effect on my daily life.  I “know” so much about what’s going on all over the world and nation, but just until today, I had no idea how bad the flooding damage was in my neighborhood and in nearby towns.   In fact, I barely know what’s going on in people’s lives.  Yes, I am busy creature with my wife and kids, but it’s far easier to share a Facebook status or meme than it is to get involved locally.

Plus I get to virtue signal to my own group that I’m woke.  I’ve done my duty for the day and can avoid paying any more attention to the depressing hitsquad media circus in the current year.  Of course, I’m able to do this because my life isn’t terribly hard at the moment.

I used to think that the majority of Americans are apathetic to the “important” stuff happening in the world and nation – and to some extent I still think that’s true – but how much can you care about riots in Berkeley when your basement is flooded and everything you had down there is trashed?

We often ask why all these sheeple don’t care about all the important stuff we know is important, but why should they? When I worked third shift, it was a second job for most of my co-workers. They were working 16 hours a day and sleeping maybe 5 if they were lucky.  They didn’t have time, and anything they did wasn’t going to be spent worrying needlessly about things they couldn’t affect.   Is it really apathy when they barely have time to sleep?

Is it really Apathy?

Time is the ultimate resource, and for all the time I and others bitch about nonsense happening on College campuses to celebrities lecturing us, none of it matters to someone who is spending all their time trying to pump water out of their basement.

I and many of us in this dissident right sphere have ignored our neighbors for national issues.  We’ve ignored the struggles, trials, and chaos that plagues those around us to formulate musings, observations, and rants about feminism, social justice blatherings, and vacuous journalism.  Say what you want about guys like Jack Donovan, but at least he’s creating his own tribe with which to live his life.

I’m back in Illinois – and looking at moving to Wisconsin the future, and I can’t help but notice that people don’t have time to care when shitholes like Waukegan, Zion, and North Chicago are filled with the hopeless who can’t find jobs, drug pushers on the street, and people begging you for money and cigarettes on every corner.  Regardless of whether you loathe or hate Trump, he has no idea who you are and isn’t going to bail you out of your shitty life situation. Neither obviously will his critics.

We keep looking for political saviors to improve our lives, but we find none because the national is never focused or concerned on the local – even more so for your smaller towns.  Washington DC doesn’t care about you. Chicago doesn’t care about the small towns in the rest of the state.  (There’s a reason urban and rural concerns and voting is so different. )

If we want to convince people to care about  the problems that face our future, we have to make their future one that is worth living for.  The friends you make are the ones that will hear you out because they know you, care about you, know the investment you have in their lives, and they know you are going through the same crap they are thus forming a mutual identity.    No one REALLY cares about those that aren’t like them or in the same plight.

Mark my words, this is what will drive a new cultural class identity – not race or ethnicity.  Anyone with brains already knows that there’s little worth preserving in France, that Japan disdains foreigners, and that Europe’s problem’s didn’t come from refugees, but from the terrible bitter fruit of the cursed French Revolution and Enlightenment.  But no, let’s blame the Jews and blacks.

Yea we can be woke with our statistics about true crime, but until communities are rebuilt, it’s pointless virtue signaling to our own crowd and arguing with people online who have never met us and consider us loathsome deplorable chem drooling hicks from the Appalachians who apparently deserve to die.

Online persuasion with irritable keyboard happy strangers is a fool’s errand.  Until they meet us face-to-face, their hatred will always blind them to the fact that the suffering of people who aren’t a “minority” or marginalized group actually matters.

Stop going to fight AntiFa in Berkeley or some other peaceful, prosperous, and devoid of poverty liberal city.  Focus on your neighbors instead.    If AntiFa tries to show up to where you live, then fight them there – hopefully with locals and neighbors who don’t care about politics, but see AntiFa as invading scum who are the Fascists they claim to fight.

We want to be on the frontlines “making a difference”, but the frontlines are our OWN communities. That’s where the war has to be “fought”, where it’s always been fought, and it for sure as hell isn’t for those who troll mercilessly on twitter with no attachments to a communities people in real life.   It’s for those who are willing to strain their backs, babysit their neighbors kids, and actually get off their damn smartphone and learn that actual face-to-face conversation is what builds trust, community, and stability for the foundations of the future.

Online Movements Are Nothing Without Local Community

Ask yourself, how much do you have in common with those in online communities besides overlapping parts of your worldview?   If you perished tomorrow, would you be missed? Would articles be written? By no means should any relationships and friendships formed online be denigrated, but are your forming quality relationships with your neighbors?  If a Ferguson erupted in your town, your and your  frantic neighbors would share the same terrifying situation.

What’s left of the Alt-right is already proving to be narcissistic feuding degenerates all wanting a piece for themselves and to rule it from their arm chairs, while throwing each other under the bus.  The online presence is often just that; online trolls to personalities either spamming books, asking for patreon donations, or meming from sun up to sun down. (I won’t denigrate the meme aspect of the culture war.)

Just as most of us pessimistic types realized, online movements are often corrupted into some warped version of themselves – as the white nationalists among us make clear daily as they obsess about race, race, and more race.  Often, I’m wondering if they are just as bitter as the BLM types and what the hell is worth preserving of “white” culture – whatever that means these days besides materialism and perpetually shopping till you drop.

What the alt-right originally undertook – the forming of an identity that could rebuild the crumbling foundations of Western culture – has instead been subverted into a shallow identity of “opposition” to the left.  Rather than offer up real solutions – with the exception of Vox Day – it’s been reduced down to infighting, blaming, “big government is great if it helps whites”, and ramblings about IQ.

As Davis Aurini points out regarding the eventual subversion and death of online movements:

“Take a group of people – any group of people – and if they lack an explicit purpose for associating, as well as a command and control system to make sure that purpose doesn’t waver, their identity will eventually boil down to the lowest common denominator.  And the lowest common denominator for any group is usually the fact that they’re not that other group.  Their identity will become something reactionary and negative; by defining themselves as the opposite of that which they oppose, they will eventually allow that other group to define who they are.  Often enough, their opposition will do the same thing.  Soon enough, you have two groups who are mirror images of one another, fighting one another, and whatever principles or goals that might have started the two groups, are quickly reduced to nothing but slogans, and their former leaders are vilified for holding them back from the fray.”

Even the proposals that do come forth such as Spencer’s white only ethno state aren’t just bad ideas, but will never happen.  That of course assumes “white” will mean the same thing in the future as it does today – which means it won’t.  What are you left with?

A local community from which you and your neighbors will build an identity. Take everything you learn online and apply it.  Avoid repeating the mistakes of your “blue pill” self.  History is a great teacher and one that we must constantly come back to for lessons that have stood the test of time.

Our focus must be local.  You can’t address your neighbors worldview when his house is falling apart and he doesn’t know where the money is going to come from for his next mortgage payment.   Desperation is all around us, but often we are blissfully unaware of it.   We forget that the most eager “converts” are those whose lives were previously in shambles, yet now are starting to emerge from the slime and grind of daily life.

No reformation, societal overhaul, or prevention of the fall of what’s left of Western culture will take place until it transforms local communities.  Online movements are constantly prone to decay, and ours is no exception.  The Neo-Reactionists in our sphere may write as obtuse and high church like manner to keep out entryists and subversion, but they likely will be left behind in their own bubble never pushing the Overton window.

To believe in anything, you must see it impact you and those around you.   It is far better to live in happiness with your neighbors then to write in malice toward strangers on either coast.  The former will always be with you, while the latter you will never meet. Perhaps we can make the “change” Obama disingenuously never intended.
