PRAISE OF FOLLY: STATISM AND THE ALT-RIGHT

Image result for god king


This is an interesting discussion between Alternative Right assistant editor Andy Nowicki and Todd Lewis of Praise of Folly concerning the affinity of many on the alternative Right for excessive statism. It would seem that such an approach amounts to throwing the baby out with the bathwater. One of the great achievements of Western civilization is the idea of the rights of the individual, the autonomy of civil society and limitations on the power of rulers. This is an essential element of the Western heritage, and those who wish to reject it would seem to be disregarding a major Western political tradition in favor of Eastern despotism.

IN DEFENSE OF MILO YIANNOPOULOS



Oi Vei!, the Alt Right struggles with self-definition yet again. Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos is befuddling the Left.
"Following Out magazine’s recent profile of Breitbart Senior Editor, Milo Yiannopoulos, leftists have trotted out one of their favorite buzzwords: 'white supremacist.'

Lucas Grindley of The Advocate, who can be seen in this piece’s header image, wrote an article reporting on an open letter signed by over forty LGBT reporters and media professionals condemning Out for their profile of Milo."

HAWTHORNE AND LOVECRAFT: TWO WHO RODE THE TIGER

                    
Nathaniel Hawthorne


Americans are supposed to be energetic. After all, we “went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between” because of our relentless drive for expansion and profit. The American caricature, so idolized and reviled throughout the world, is a loud creature with a fondness for action and a devotion to extolling the virtues of thinking big and making quick money. According to Louis Hartz, author of The Liberal Tradition in America,irrational Lockeanism” is our prevailing credo, with both liberals and conservatives essentially agreeing on the soundness of liberal democracy and global capital. A good Cold War liberal, Hartz (and generations of leftists after him) believed that a genuine and unique American right did not and could not exist. The left has all the best ideas, after all.

MONTHLY ROUND-UP: SEPTEMBER 2016—THE RISE CONTINUES!


After an unexpectedly strong August—thanks Hillary!—September also saw a slight rise in page views, with 243,252 page views. Of course, we could easily have boosted these figures taking the easy route for many sites on the Alt-Right, namely by going full "stormfag" and Pepe, but we see this as an unstable growth model and ultimately bad for the movement. Instead we prefer to push growth by a steady stream of lucid and intelligent articles, as well as other items.

FASCIST PIGS PODCAST: TALKING TRUMP & MOON CRICKETS WITH MATT PARROTT



In the latest edition of the Fascist Pigs Podcast, Alex Fontana and Matt Parrot of the Traditionalist Workers Party discuss a range of issues, starting with the first Presidential debate and moving on to the rise of the Alt-Right, 'country-club nationalism,' the complexities of racial politics, Jewish power, the "evils" of the British Empire, Amish girls in cornfields, and "folklore racism."

REVIEW: MJOLNIR IV

Mjolnir IV
Edited by Dave Yorkshire
68 pages
Buy here

Reviewed by Colin Liddell

Dave Yorkshire’s cultural and metapolitical magazine—appropriately named after the hammer of the mighty Norse god Thor—has now reached its fourth incarnation, and this time it's gone for a theme of marriage and procreation. It is always important to emphasize the essentials in an age like our own, when so many lives are derailed by distractions and trivialities.

It may seem somewhat odd, that I have ended up reviewing this testament to the "life force" just as the first signs of autumn are becoming apparent and nature is winding down. But, as all good pagans know, Samhain (a.k.a. Halloween), which is now approaching on the horizon, is the start of the life cycle and in fact the year. Death to life, not life to deathas in certain other cultures.

FASCISM: GOOD, BAD, OR INDIFFERENT?


Todd Lewis and Keith Preston discuss the most controversial ideology of all. Listen here.

It's also interesting to compare Todd's analysis of fascism with that of Paul Gottfried.

REORIENTATING THE MEN'S MOVEMENT

Is there an alternative?
by James Lawrence

Any movement dedicated to securing the future of the Western peoples must deal with the fact that feminist legislation, moral corruption and hate-spreading has rendered marriage to a Western woman a decidedly unwise act for most men. The online networks of male resistance to feminism, most of which overlap at some point or other with the Alt-Right, have so far managed to offer three alternative paths for men:

THE 'SPORTSBALL' SNEER


To make an allusion to a certain hairy-fairy poet of celebratory bombast and glorified deviancy (no, not Milo), every mass movement can be said to “contain multitudes.” Such a circumstance is inevitable, when one considers the fact that “mass” invariably equates to “massive”; when more people are added to a group, that which could be called the group’s essential core is in some way diluted by the result.

Thus, the would-be leaders of any burgeoning movement inevitably wind up imposing, or at least prescribing, with a heavy dollop of “extreme prejudice,” a certain top-down set of precepts or attitudes, to which those in the general herd (that is, the would-be underlings under these would-be leaders) feel a need to conform, lest they be ridiculed for the ridiculous gesture of standing alone with their hideously contrary views and looking like a bunch of uncool, uncouth, autistic fedora-clad goofballs who most assuredly never get laid. 

ALT-RIGHT, ALT-LITE, AND THE FUZZINESS OF DONALD TRUMP


The Alt-Right includes a spectrum of views: from the racist, White Nationalist Alt-Right to the culturist, Western-Civilization protecting Alt-Light. Herein I will cover both sides' mutual disdain for multiculturalism, discuss their differences and place Trump in the spectrum. Ultimately, I will argue, not only is Trump not Alt-Right, he is only tepidly Alt-Lite.

TOWARDS A "GRAND HIERARCHY OF THE ALT-RIGHT"



There has been a lot of interest in an article at Counter-Currents that goes by the sweaty-palmed title "The Caste System of the Alt Right." It purports to be written by someone called "Michael Bell," a person I have never heard of before, but who apparently has enough confidence in his leadership qualities to dictate to the rest of the Alt-Right how it should organize itself. This leads me to suspect that Michael Bell is in fact someone much more well-known in our circles, who is possibly being a little coy with us on this occasion. Just who it is...the mind boggles.

While an interesting improvement on recent efforts to excommunicate people wholesale from the movement and thus whittle it down to a tiny ghetto of hard-signalling stormfags, I feel that Mr. Bell's schemata can do with some mild improvements, so, here without further ado, is my own intricately constructed pyramid of status, with examples of where the various luminaries of the Alt-Right slot effortlessly in. Starting at the top...

CREEPING CARNIVALISM


The following passage, describing the failure of the New Left in the 1960s and 70s, has a lot of relevance for our own movement:
"Ironically, just when the New Left was experiencing an unprecedented wave of support, its leading organization, SDS, which claimed almost a hundred thousand members and a million supporters, was being torn asunder by internal contradictions. Chapter meetings throughout the country degenerated into ideological squabbles as the Progressive Labor party (PL), a disciplined Old Left cadre, made a power play and tried to take over the SDS. The PL people were cultural conservatives; they wore their hair short, dressed straight, mouthed Marxist dogma, and dismissed lifestyle as a peripheral concern that diverted attention from the true working-class struggle. On repeated occasions PL castigated SDS regulars for being ‘escapist’ and ‘objectively counterrevolutionary when they spoke in favor of turning on. (Quite a few SDS members would have agreed with Arthur Kleps when he said, ‘Marxism is the opiate of the unstoned classes.’) PL also criticized propaganda tactics like guerrilla theater and rock bands at rallies as ‘creeping carnivalism,’ and they even claimed that Timothy Leary was a CIA agent who pushed acid on the Movement as part of an imperialist plot." (Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: the CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond by Martin A. Lee and Bruce Shlain)

VIDEO: THE FAILURE OF CONSERVATISM AND THE INEVITABILITY OF THE ALT-RIGHT


One Man's Chorus is an excellent source of well-argued Alt-Right videos. This video addresses the Conservative movement's surprising refusal to engage with the Left on fundamental issues, where it could win, and to instead to argue detail. Hint: symbiosis

IS GERMANY F**KED OR NOT?

Panic, don't panic!


You'll have seen the story by now—"Germany: Nearly 40 Per Cent of Under Fives Now ‘Migrant Background"—accompanied, as in the linked article, by a picture of leering, brown-skinned urchins.

Under fives 40% kebab!!! you are invited to think—stick a fork in it, the land of the sausage is well and truly done:
"Following the release of figures which reveal almost four in ten children under five have foreign roots, Michael Paulwitz says the demographic change will be the death of Germany’s welfare state.

The journalist and historian predicts that 'hard struggles' over resources will take place when ethnic Germans are a minority, and that native Germans 'will inevitably lose out.'"
