The New Romantics

One of the forces pushing the alt-right along is a rejection of the modern, sterile aesthetic that is the technological age. This seems to be especially true of the younger millennials and Gen Z. They grew up in a world of glass and stainless steel, smooth edges and shades of gray.This is also an age that rejects speculation and spontaneity. It’s why popular culture is so dull and feminine. There’s a drugged dullness to our age. It’s not a rational age, for sure, more like a unromantic age, in which nothing interesting happens.

That’s part of the appeal of the new dissident politics. There’s a danger to showing up at alt-right rallies or associating with hate thinkers on social media. Men, especially young men, like adventure. For the generations raised by helicopter parents, thought police and sensitivity training, the danger of the alt-right is wildly attractive. Breaking taboos and standing outside the herd is exhilarating, but the associated brotherhood fills a void the custodial state created in young men. It’s not just fun to be bad, it’s liberating.

We seem to be at the confluence of two forces acting on our societies. One is the hyper-feminization we see everywhere. There are few public places where men can be themselves or hold a dominant place. In fact, any sphere of life that is male oriented is under pressure to bring in girls. Even things like sports are forcibly integrated. We live in an age where elites want to put girls on football teams and in the boxing ring. Modern life is covered in a wool blanket, drenched with the fetid waters of feminism.

The other force is mass media. If you examine modern movies, one of the odd things is that many are in celebration of old weird America. Boston, for example, became a popular setting for movies, but almost always the old Boston of ethnic neighborhoods. Mass media allows young people a glimpse of the old lost age. They can see a time where the South was still rural and mysterious, the Northeast had tribal ethnics and Los Angeles still had Americans. For the young, old weird America feels like a foreign country.

The point here is that we are now at a time, at least from the perspective of a young male, where America is a feminine and deracinated society. For those of us who have lived through this transformation, it may be depressing, but it is not jarring. We saw the changes over time, We heard the warnings of those commentators on the Old Right and we saw those warnings ignored. It’s like driving a new car for ten years. You know it is old and you remember when it was new, but you also remember everything in between.

Young people lack that middle part. They came into a world disconnected from the old world they can still see on TV or in movies. For young white males, increasingly alienated from the modern culture, it is not a big surprise that they would look backward for examples of how to move forward. Spend time following alt-right social media, and you see lots of references to the fact that the current culture is degraded and ugly. The past had true diversity, while present is a homogenized, degenerate slurry of nothingness.

This interesting story from the Guardian UK, about something similar happening in Germany, suggests this could be a pan-Western phenomenon. The difference is that it is still possible to be a famous intellectual in Europe. You can also be famous as a writer of fiction, read by men. In the US, public intellectuals are chattering skulls on cable TV, who spit out vapid platitudes approved by the people in charge. Literature, of course, is now dominated by women, so it has no point and no audience, outside the academy.

That said, Europe and America have something in common. Young males, disconnected from the culture, are searching for something to give purpose to their lives. A common refrain on the alt-right is about the uselessness of being a wage slave in a cubicle farm, just so you can buy useless crap from global corporations. That seems to be a theme of the new romanticism bubbling up in Europe. It’s young people, particularly young males, reaching back to an age before they were born, for inspiration and  purpose.

The Guardian piece is quick to point out the connections between German Romanticism and you know who. That brings up a big difference between the US and Europe. Germans are not about to become minorities in their own country. The same is true of the rest of Europe. In the US, whites will be a minority in a generation. The cultural phenomenon may have many parallels today, but in the fullness of time they will head off in different directions. It’s why the alt-right is less artsy than the new European romantics.

All in all, what we are seeing is validation of an age old truth. One of the top-level duties of a ruling class is to keep its young men busy. Too many alienated and idle young men always spells trouble. What’s happened in the West is the ruling elite has deliberately pushed men out of the social order. The follow on act was to invite in millions of foreigners to gloat over the deracinated male population. There are only so many mixed race couples you can see on TV before you get the message.

This will not end well

It would follow that we’re due for a new era in the endless cycle of things. Before Modernism, before even Postmodernism – there was Romanticism. I guess you can put the whole steampunk vibe into that strain of culture. I think it’s too early to tell which way things are going to wiggle but your educated guess is as good as any.

Steampunk was spawned by anime, it had a very brief existence limited to a very small demographic, mainly escapist fantasy drama queens centered in a few specific areas tied to the ‘artistic left’ the alt right rejects what Steampunk represents and sees it as part of the PROBLEM.

I’m the same age as ZMan, and unusual among my acquaintance in that I never played video games. Never saw the attraction, just seemed like a waste of time. It upsets me to see grown men today blowing money on game systems. Recently a co-worker showed me a picture of her new granddaughter – her son was lying back on the couch, cradling his infant under his chin like an old phone handset, both his hands occupied with a video game. There was something so wrong about the spectacle that it stuck with me.

Almost three years ago my wife and I splurged on a WII and a few titles.
Over the week following it I Played the ‘Bowling’ sports simulation exclusively. The other titles were mind-numbing.

Since that week, it has sat behind the television gathering dust. It has been used exactly once since, to play a DVD that was scratched enough that our regular DVD couldn’t play it (Mary Poppins).

We play tabletop RPG’s three times a week (Have for 30 years) and I go bowling once a week. With a real ball.

One reason I was able to adjust to the revolution in minimally invasive surgery better and faster than many of my colleagues was because I played video games. I had a higher level of hand-eye coordination than almost anyone around me when I went to the courses.

Some very good surgeons ended up retiring because they were unable to make it. And some guys who should have retired fumbled on. The reason I got… Read more »

It is interesting the way that video games have become imbued with such hoodoo to the Boomers, in much the same way that rock and roll was once viewed by their parents.
As an X-er, I wonder what new fad, popular amongst my Zyklon children will end up filling me with a similar “get off my lawn” syndrome, as I feel neither R&R or video games are anything particularly malignant in the way of the older generations.

They aren’t (malignant). There is a certain kind of stiff necked boor who feels compelled to piss on anything they personally don’t enjoy. Typically they will start off with “I haven’t watched TV for 25 years” or some such statement. Not sure why they think anyone else cares what they like or don’t like.

Well Karl, I haven’t watched TV for 25 years. I think the compulsion to tell folks about it is perhaps due to weariness from the assumptions people make that I am up to my eyeballs in the same entertainments that they themselves choose. I don’t know how many conversations begin with “Hey, did you see that commercial where blah blah blah? but it happens a lot.

Nah! The vast bulk of Civil War “casualties” (including deaths), reported, were from such “non-bloody” means as mumps, measles chicken pox, diarrhea and malaria!

Battles were sporadically bloody, but casualties were made worse by old-style tactics used in the face of new weapons, compounded by primitive battlefield medical practices.

It’s a shame that so many high status males are brainwashed to buy these used cars that carefully hide their carfax.

I have thought the same Z – basically how stereotypical Feminine the prevailing culture has become. The government can’t manage or even understand basic money management, the lurching from hot fashion to the next (think homosexuals to blacks to trannies to illegal immigrants), the emotional meltdowns (trump, Hillary, Russia). Many men who have been married have lived through the same things in microcosm, a bit of security and the feminine mind seeks out the next conflict/drama to feel alive.

I see the white shitlibs getting forced out of the dem party (happening already) and taking up white identity with a vengeance. The black population will be isolated geographically and politically, shrinking steadily over time as welfare benefits are withdrawn. Asians will pretty much align with the whites, and the Mexicans will be repatriated or assimilated. Equilibrium will be restored, there will not be a race war or any large blood letting. The white lower and working classes will be rejuvenated by Trump’s America first manufacturing policy.

You can get a gun by joining a hunting club, right? You can also make them. Go onto Scribd and search “professor parabellum” or “practical scrap metal firearms.” You can also buy PA Luty’s book. Make friends with some bikers like the Mongols and you can get ammo and firearms.

I disagree with your description of them as invaders. Let me explain: An invader comes with weapons and storms your country. And he kills you. And in an invasion the state mobilises the armed forces.

In at least one city in Germany migrants outnumber native Germans. It made international news in groups I follow.

You are right that the U.S. is much farther along than Europe. A few weeks ago, I applied for a residence permit in Austria. I introduced myself to the female bureaucrat by saying, “ I am English but I can speak German.” She responded by saying, “ That is good because in Austria we speak German.” I really believe that an equivalent statement about English made by a bureaucrat in the U.S. (probably also in the U.K.) would result in summary termination. And in many parts of the U.S., such a statement would not even be true.

It is the ‘genius’ (so to speak) of The System of Islam that it is structured to constantly produce a surplus of unneeded, idle young men via polygamy, etc. They are a constant aid to jihad, hence Islamic expansion, since they can be easily diverted via Islamic doctrine into things young men instinctively like to do such as fight, rape and plunder.

“Young males, disconnected from the culture, are searching for something to give purpose to their lives.”

Indeed they are. Having a family used to be the number one answer to this – that is, taking on the big bad world and creating a safe and happy little universe for oneself and the wife of his youth to raise some decent future citizens – but as long as so many young men bounce around from one “relationship” to another and waste their lives working on “game” then the cultural Marxists have won.

We can’t fix things or make them right until we understand how they got broken in the first place. Women didn’t go nuts of their own accord. Back in the day they the would have rejected feminism and proggie liberalism en masse – and embraced the Alt-Right in droves. Back in the good ol’ days, they lived in a man’s world. Consider: House work used to be a 24/7/365 proposition. Being a mother and home maker was a wholesome and respected profession. The perfect woman of the 40’s ran her home with the precision of a Swiss watch. Her home… Read more »

Historically and universally, the family was an economic unit of production: Husbands and wives, parents and children, perhaps other family members and employees worked on the family farm or in the family business. Being a housewife was hard work and required a great deal of skill. A man married not just because he wanted someone to wash and iron his pants, but someone to make his pants to begin with, possibly starting with wool from his own sheep. Women earned a great deal of self-respect and the respect of others. With industrialization, urbanization and affluence, the family gradually shifted from… Read more »

There is plenty a woman can do around the house and farm. My wife and daughter homeschool our grandchildren and nieces. They manage some of our breeding program, organize family get togethers, and holidays, and a bunch of other stuff.

They’re happier than when they were in the man’s world and twice as engaged with each other and the family.

Putting them back in the kitchen isn’t an option; they need work, they need to feel useful and appreciated, and they need something to do…just like us. If we don’t answer that soon – well, we know how that goes, right? “ Here’s an idea: Women get chance to ‘one-up’ the men in mixed infantry units “I want to be one of the females to prove to everybody else that just because you’re a female, doesn’t mean you can’t do the same things as a male,”… Read more »

Make fash fash. Know the battlefield. Women, drawn to cities and urban jobs, eventually outnumber the men. They are starved for mates, and dominate urban industry such as academia, bureaucracy, and media. We hear their cacaphony of signaling as they use the shifting fads of enforcement as they try to one-up each other for position, for mates, for pension. When good males are in shortage, opportunists adopt the plumage to attract them. It’s a fashion war. Females in media are driving a fashion war. The good guys were over there getting killed in Vietnam. So the seducers became bad boy… Read more »

Not to sound like the old geezer but if they label fits I guess . . . . . . . Haven’t seen anything in this latest batch of up-and-coming young males to inspire me about any sort of reversal of fortune for the white race. They’ve been bludgeoned by big media to be never ending apologists for the savages that infest the cities. Now big brother is promoting mating with these animals. Until these young white males grow a backbone and defend their women against the onslaught of urban and third world filth we will very likely be an… Read more »

Los Angeles still had Americans

The Los Angeles Municipal Code states that Los Angeles shall be considered American territory until such time as Steve Sailer permanently moves out of the city or dies. At such time the city shall be relinquished to the Mexican government.

‘In the west, whites will be a minority in a generation.” Only in the urban areas. I travel extensively around the country, and am currently in the rural heart of the Keystone State. Out here, old America is alive and kicking. Men lined up at the gun and hunting counter at the small, general store, buying hunting licenses and wearing camo clothing. Their young male children similarly attired, with short hair, no tattoos and muddy boots. And the women look …. normal. American flags abound, along with their yellow, Gadsden counterparts. Farms, rural homesteads and the yards of closely packed,… Read more »

“Germans are not about to become minorities in their own country.”

Not so fast.

Check out the immigration figures and the demographics.

Germans WILL be a minority in their own country, probably some time this century.
