Discerning readers ought to take note at the outset that I have long been a contributor to Alternative Right, even before I became a co-editor in 2013, before demoting myself to an assistant editor in 2015. Readers should also note that—as I have always made clear—I am not now a white nationalist, have never been a white nationalist, and don’t intend to become a white nationalist in the future.

Those who have a difficult time comprehending how an Alternative Right writer and editor could be a non-WN should go here to find out what the Alternative Right movement has always meant to me, as well as to others. But I wished to preface this critique of white nationalism with these clarifications, lest anyone accuse me of the dread act of “countersignaling.”

A supposed countersignaler—as the term is typically used—takes a point of view before conspicuously bucking against the conventional wisdom held by others who hold this perspective, just to burnish his bone fides as a controversialist. I, on the other hand, offer this critique of white nationalism as an outsider, albeit a kindly-disposed one, who counts many white nationalists as friends and who is unashamed to ally with WNs against a hostile and extremely powerful ideological establishment which hates us all with a near-equal degree of murderous fury.

While not a WN, I do find a good deal of common ground with WNs, as I observed in that previous article:
I have never been shy to admit the ways in which I might not fit into everyone’s idea of the “alt-right” mold. To wit, I am not a white nationalist (though I apprehend the folly of multiculturalism and strongly oppose the imposition of the “white guilt” psy-op upon the native Occidental populace); I don’t see miscegenation as a sin against the Holy Ghost, or as any kind of sin at all (though I do find the race-mixing propaganda of the powers-that-be thoroughly obnoxious, and observe that there is no shame in people’s natural proclivity to prefer their own kind as mates); I am not hostile to Jews qua Jews (though I recognize the reality of Jewish power and the baleful influence of many contemporary Jewish-led movements); finally, I hew to a universalist morality and recognize an essential unity of men of all races being created in the image and likeness of God (while at the same time acknowledging the obvious existence of biologically-based racial differences).
For all that, there are certain aspects of white nationalism that, I will be so bold to suggest, seeing as how I am an non-WN, might warrant re-examination. First and foremost of these is what I will label the often-alarmist  “fertility cult” approach to racial demographics. As I will attempt to argue, this propensity is frequently hysterical hand-wringing mentality which gives rise to almost inevitable mischief.


When I speak of the “fertility cult” mindset, I mean the tendency to say, “Look at the rising tide of color! The black man, the brown man, and the yellow man are outbreeding us, and soon we won’t exist anymore!” Then comes the inevitable call to arms, or perhaps more accurately, to beds: “White people, have lots and lots of white babies right now!!! That is your imperative goal, superseding everything else! We must reproduce more than we are currently reproducing, or there will be no more white people in this world!”

There is, of course, great reason to be concerned about demographic trends in the West, but the culprit isn’t lack of white fecundity; rather it is the mass importation of Third Worlders to Western nations, as engineered by the West’s collective political, financial, and business rulership, who seem to have decided, almost to a man, that the borders must be thrown open to allow infinite streams of foreign folk easy entry into Western realms, and that citizens of these countries, who overwhelmingly and quite reasonably oppose such chaos-producing insanity, have no legitimate say in the matter and ought to shut the hell up , lay back and accept their own demographic displacement and ongoing “soft” ethnic cleansing.

Reversing this trend will require “deleting the elite” in some mode or manner, peacefully or otherwise. Whites have more children is generally beside the point. White people haven’t stopped siring enormous broods of children out of some racial “death wish” or because they have been guilted into submission by anti-natalist propaganda launched by white-hating oligarchs. They are simply following the trend in more developed countries, wherein smaller families are the norm. The problem isn’t that there are fewer whites than non-whites in the world—that has long been the case—the problem is that traditionally white countries are being converted into multicultural hellholes, all for the benefit of the ultra-rich and the mega-powerful.

Telling whites to breed more, then, is beside the point. Whites aren’t going to cease to exist due to declining birthrates or the largely chimeric phenomenon, loathed with such neurotic intensity, of miscegenation (more on that later). The white race, in short, will go on, one way or another; the problem is that they—as well as other culturally-assimilated Westerners who aren’t white-- are being gradually displaced by foreign, unassimilated  elements in their own homelands.


Putting aside the practical objection that the WN “fertility cult” is beside the point because mass immigration has no relationship to white fecundity, let us examine the ethical problems inherent in the oft-expressed “Have more white babies!!!” imperative.

It should of course be understood that there is nothing wrong with having children, and that there is nothing wrong with having many children, provided they are raised within an intact, stable, love-filled home. Under the right circumstances, large families can be wonderful indeed. But the end of man, and woman, is not merely to breed. The value of human life does not lie solely in marrying and reproducing. Many people do marry, and do reproduce, and derive great joy from doing so. But other people, men and women alike, have a different calling. No one is obliged to breed. No one should be shamed for not having children. (Rather, one should be shamed for having children, then neglecting or abusing them, as all too often happens.)

Reducing people to “reproduction factories,” which must be operational at all available times, is in fact a deeply dehumanizing conceit. Perhaps such an outlook is the grim outcome of the materialist mindset, which occludes notions of man as a being of inherent worth, whose end is to grow towards God; not as a mere cog in a racial collective, with a ruthless Darwinian drive to conquer and consume.

Making humans into mere things, to be exploited and disposed of once their usefulness has ceased, is in fact a symptom of an altogether degraded and morally-polluted mindset. Which leads into the other reason why I find the “Gotta have more white babies!!!” imperative unseemly and wrongheaded.


White nationalists who try to shame, bully, and guilt-trip others into parenthood on account of their whiteness are not expressing a desire for more children to be loved, cared for, and appreciated for their inherent worth. Instead, they want more ivory-colored pawns to be placed on the global demographic chessboard. Whether these children are loved or not, appreciated or not, whether their parents are worthy or not, appears to be of secondary importance. The main thing is to “make more of us!”

Children are not chess pieces
But children aren’t a strategic asset to manipulate in Machiavellian machinations for dominion and control. Children are people. Just as it is degrading to regard men and women as baby-producing factories, so it is frankly distasteful to espouse what essentially amounts to the manufacture of children to function as a demographic weapon.


White nationalists want to create an ethnostate dedicated to the nurturance and maintenance of the white race. I certainly see no harm in the notion of people of a certain mindset voluntarily living together in an intentional community dedicated to a shared view of the common good. But this goal need not be accomplished by treating one’s racial kin as a means to an end, or as utilities to be exploited. For these reasons, and because the real enemy is demographic displacement of the West at the barrel of a gun, not low breeding rates among Westerners, I humbly suggest that the “white fertility cult” mentality be discarded.

  1. great article--the misguided WNs who push the fertility idea are pushing away white females that we desperately need....

    1. Indulging "females" is what got us into this demographic mess in the first place. The best way to alienate women is to have indulge the more stupid cohort among them. Same with chikdren. For every Lauren Southern or Ann Coulter there are 10 that aren't. Queen Ann herself has concluded that we'd be better of without the female vote. I agree. The women "alienated" are the likely lost causes anyway. Women are incomparably better of at the end of their life as a beloved matriarch grandmother, over 1/3rd of White will now never have children, than a few stories of their sexual "romances" in the hostels of Europe.. The data on IQ and sex now shows that not only do women have a slightly lower mean IQ (over 15 years of age boys catch up and exceed women) but also lower rstios of high IQ. For an IQ of 120 there are twice as many men for each woman, for 145 the ratio is 10:1 and for 165 the ratio is 30:1. This is why there should be few female noble prizes. Furthermore on the systemising empathising scale developed by Simon Baron Cohen women predominate in empathising rather than systemising. This is unlikely to keep a civilisation together, develop higher morality, or spot a looming trend that requires higher morality or maths, such as demographic collapse. Women are capable but seldom go there. Men must start being men again rather than being in the thrall of hysterical leftist women eternally triggered. Do our job as men and the women will do their job as women. Create a patriarchal safe space for them. Hold the line Hopolite.

  2. Nicely said Grima Wormtongue.

  3. There's is no place for White Nationalism at alternetative-right.blogspot.com. This is family-friendly civic nationalist conservative culturist website.

    1. You are an illiterate moron who just wants to shout "kike" and "nigger" all day long (no doubt you are also Jewish). Don't know why you keep coming here instead of your natural home (((The Daily Stormer))).

      There are literally hundreds of articles here dealing with race. We deal with racial differences in a sensible and intelligent way that can win over people who are not complete antisocial retards like you.

    2. "How very mature of you."
      What's your solution to all this then? Let us stay with 1.5 fertility?

  4. Alternative right takes the "hipster loser" approach to fertility rates...such a bourgeois attitude on white genocide. Like or acknowledge it or not,you are in a war-RIGHT NOW. If you have no children you have no steak in the future. Regardless of if you're a white nationalist or just a way come easy go right wing larper. With no stake in the future you are merely a spectator, period. You have a duty AT THE VERY LEAST, replace yourselves. Demographic war against us is real. Denying it is like denying that western civilization is in peril at all. People are in fact "baby making factories". That is the point of all life. To reproduce and survive. When a nation is at war they produce weapons for them to win that war. Children are chess pieces in that war like it or not. When we win and beat back the mud then we can worry about scaling down our birth rates. But as of now? In the new global context the "nuclear family" model is causing us to lose the war long term.If you don't want children it's because you're selfish. Lose your egos. Think about your history and your people and the new Judaic dark age we're entering and the answer becomes clear as glass. This article reads like cosmopolitan rubish made by gay pseudo intellectuals living in a bubble. Put down your martinis and get to procreating and making armies for our people. Or don't and "alternative right" will go the rout of the Cato institute having to beg for money from the porn industry and literal shit heads like John McAfee.

    1. "Alternative right takes the "hipster loser" approach to fertility rates..."

      We are not marching in lockstep here. I favour a more proactive ethnocentric fertility program. We obviously need it.

    2. "[N]ot marching in lockstep" is an understatement. This article is opening fire on the most central issue for whites in the current year. It is pushing an anti-white agenda as acrid as most kiked media outlets.

    3. CB Liddell, what would be your idea for a more proactive fertility program? This is a sincere question. The whole "you're a traitor if you don't breed" meme from many alt right blogs and vlogs isn't exactly inspirational.

  5. If the issue were simply a matter of race or civic government, then your argument against pressuring for fertility would make more sense. But we have a cultural problem that is best cured through social pressure.

    A few generations ago, it took social pressure and social engineering to turn people against raising families (admittedly aided by human hedonism), and it will take some degree of social pressure to restore the value of child-rearing in whites today.

    The question is, do the WN's go too far? Based on likely results, I don't think so. Would-be unwitting feminists (and what modern woman hasn't absorbed feminist attitudes?) are driven away while young men learn to value patriarchal families once again. Women will follow the lead of strong men, so there will be no shortage of pairings.

    This is a good thing, and we can see clearly that it doesn't turn people into machines of the movement. Whatever the possibility of that danger in the long run, it is not here now.

  6. "There is, of course, great reason to be concerned about demographic trends in the West, but the culprit isn’t lack of white fecundity"
    This subversive would actually have us believe the above statement is true. In Israel the fertility rate is 3 children per women. Would we have a demographic crises in the white countries if whites had maintained that fertility rate? No. The number one reason the globalist are importanting the third world is because whites aren't having enough children. The number of whites in the US is shrinking, which is bad for white people, and the most important thing we can do is have more white babies. This article is anti-white.

  7. Re: Demographic displacement of the West at the barrel of a gun, is a direct result of the West’s resource rape of Third World cheap labour, renewable and mineral resources; and the West’s advocacy, endorsement and enforcement of the ‘right to breed and consume with total disregard for ecological carrying capacity limits’ clauses of international law; in order to breed more cheap labour slaves and consumers for the fuck honour Western elite’s Fortune 500 corporations.
