Exiles

Exile is a central part of human existence, most certainly as old as human settlement and probably predating it. Humans are social animals. Banishment and ostracism are primeval weapons, wielded by human groups for the worst crimes like sacrilege, murder and subversion. Exile as a punishment is based in the understanding that much of who we are as a human is based on our relationship with others. Our role in the group is who we are, so therefore being forced out of the group is a nullification of one’s identity.

Death, of course, is the ultimate nullification. For a group of humans to decide that one of their own must die is the acknowledgement that the person can never be a part of the group. Who they are is not just out of sync with the group. It is a danger to the very existence of the group. Exile, in contrast, assumes the exiled can be reformed. It offers the exiled at least some opportunity to regain himself and become a part of the group again. Alternatively, he can find a new group where he belongs.

While exile is as old as man, it is also as modern as man too. In fact, we would not have modernity without the prominent role of exiles in the human story. The Bolsheviks, for example, came out of exile to rock the old order and begin close to a century of struggle in the West. The Iranian revolution was engineered by exiles, who ushered in half a century of unrest in the Muslim world. Of course, America was born as an enclave for exiles, men divorced from the old country and starting new in the wilderness.

A useful way to understand the role of exile in shaping the West is to think about the birth of conservatism in Europe. Unlike everything else in modern thought, it was not the result of the Enlightenment, but rather a consequence of the French Revolution. The destruction, terror and wars that resulted from the revolution, created a generation of exiles, divorced from their lands, their people and their way of life. Their struggle to understand the revolution and formulate a response, was the birth of conservatism in the West.

Today, of course, there is never any discussion of how the revolution transformed the aristocracy of Europe. The radicals who rule over the West, like chimps looking in a mirror, can never stop obsessing over their antecedents. The revolution, however, fundamentally altered the elite of Europe. There was the material changes, of course, as they were forced to abandon their lands and flee to neighboring lands. There were also a spiritual and intellectual changes that resulted in being exiled from their homes.

The French aristocrat living in Vienna, for example, suddenly found himself around a new elite, with different habits and different tastes. This sudden juxtaposition gave these aristocrats a new perspective on their own culture. Prior to exile, they had no reason to think about why they lived as they did. It was just the way things were as they entered the world. In exile, they had to examine why it was their way of life existed, why they existed, and why it was swept away by the revolution.

In other words, exile created a romanticism for that lost past, but also an intellectual framework to understand how that old order was lost and how best to respond to the radicalism that was unleashed on society. Further, the restoration cemented the point that the old order was gone for good. The saying among conservatives at the time was that the restored king Louis XVIII was not sitting on the Bourbon throne, he was sitting on the throne of Napoleon. It was an acknowledgement that there was no going back.

In this age, exile explains why northern conservatism was a shabby response to northern radicalism. The conservative was not the result of exile. He was always as much a part of the ruling ethos as the radical. The relationship between the American conservative and the American radical was always as co-dependents. The radical needed the conservative as a foil, while the conservative needed the radical for a reason to exist. Without one, the other could never exist as an independent mode of thought.

The closest America has come to having an authentic conservatism was in the South where the conquered and displaced planter class had to reconcile the loss of their past with a way forward as a regional elite. It never really worked, as there could never be a restoration, even an artificial one. The anathematization of Southern culture has been so thorough and complete in the 20th century, that now the very symbols of it are treated as an affront to public morality. That aristocracy was exterminated, not exiled.

What may be happening in this age of cultural upheaval, however, is the birth of a new class of exiles. White men of the older generation are seeing the world in which they were born slowly succumbing to the darkness of multiculturalism. Theirs is not a romanticism for that old age, but a growing anger at its loss. The baby Boomer conservative takes a lot of grief, and deservedly so, but every day that group inches closer toward identity politics as the only available response to the gathering darkness.

In the younger generations, there can be no romanticism or an angry response to the loss of old white America. Instead, there is an acceptance that old white America can never be restored. There’s also a reconsideration of what created mid-century America and what sent it rocketing into the abyss of self-abnegation. These are the new exiles, divorced from the past, cut off from their culture and hounded by the radicals of this revolution, as the aristocrats of France were hounded by the Jacobins.

The defect in the conservative response to 18th century radicalism was it could never get past its own romanticism. The conservatives of that age were still surrounded by the results of their lost culture. In every city center, in every local village, they were reminded of the glorious past. As a result, the conservatism of Europe was always destined to be a compromise with radicalism. Constitutional monarchy was an effort to retain the spirit of the past, inhabiting the sterile, lifeless body of social democracy.

This generation of exiles will have the benefit of not living in a museum. In a way, the radical destruction of the symbols and language of old white America is doing a service to the exiles of today and tomorrow. Without the ghosts of the past, clawing at the present, the response to today’s radicalism can be independent and new. Today’s exile will not be animated by a longing for a lost past, but instead be haunted by the unrealized present and an anger at the radicals who foreclosed his future.

The only ideology to stem the tide of leftism came from a bunch of Italian socialists. Even then, it wasn’t a remotely conservative ideology until it had to absorb elements of the old order. It wasn’t clinging to the past but forking Progress towards a different future.

There is too much progressive baggage in the West’s history now that nations can legitimately say they are the products of liberalism. Conservatives have to ask how they can subvert this history. Which isnt really conservative is it?

One of the boomers’ underappreciated flaws is their shyness. At least the Midwestern boomers like my parents. They went to the U. of Wisconsin in the late 60’s and early 70’s–the height of campus radicalism. Bombings on their campus while they were there.

But they were just shy Midwestern kids who weren’t ready to stand up to the effrontery and shamelessness of radicalism and its (cough) proponents. And they were too shy to speak out against the degeneracy that followed. We just can’t afford to be shy any more.

This is a major problem with the Anglo Protestant standard that all white Americans have assimilated to.
Maintain a stiff upper lip, don’t be loud or confrontational, don’t call people out on their obvious BS to their faces. This standard works well enough around other middle class whites. It falls apart in the face of the loud, confrontational ethnic chauvinism of black people and members of the 2%.

Yep, the whites hopefully are learning that other races, generally speaking, don’t do things like white people do.

Negro families were more functional when they were expected to adopt the European nuclear structure. It was the ending of Jim Crow and the formation of the welfare state that rewards single motherhood that hastened the end of the colored family. Now they’ve reverted to their natural lifestyle.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s “The Negro Family: The Case For National Action” is interesting to look into. I have only read the synopses, but he touches on some of the issues at play.

“Wealth” is created when value is added to raw materials. When you say white males “stole” the worlds wealth, you are saying that whitey harvested raw materials and used those unused resources to create wealth, or as whitey likes to call it, civilization. Without whitey you would be back to rocks and dirt. Without whitey it’s ashes to ashes, dust to dust, better get back to eating berries and nuts.

Interesting—the concept that YT stole all the POC’s resources and therefore are today wealthy. I’m wondering, is there any country of color in the world where there are *no* resources left, i.e., a place of barren desolation that historians can confirm were once paradises of plenty, until the dreaded white plague arrived to impoverish the country—sort of like the plot line from the movie “Independence Day”.

I think not. Rather, I see countries that, without YT, have not been able to harvest their abundant resources, nor maintain what was bequeath to them when YT left.

Capital is a product of the mind. That is why wealth can be created and is not finite . It’s being able to look at the Stream and see a dam that will power the valley. It is the endless incessant tinkering that makes things better bit by bit. It’s not a universal trait

I regularly meet young, uni educated exiles and their anger is about Trump (for being a bigot). and boomers for not more aggressively implementing cultural Marxism.

Cognitive dissonance isn’t enough to get through to most of them because there is a well rounded system in place to reinforce not noticing.

They are not the “exiles”, they are merely exiled from their own past and heritage. They are the unthinking robo-bots who willingly buy what is being sold to them, so they can “fit in” and “keep it real” and all that pablum. We are the here-and-now exiles for standing up against all that BS.

“They are the unthinking robo-bots who willingly buy what is being sold to them.” The NPC meme (non-player character) to describe SJWs is one of the funniest I have seen. No wonder it was banned on social media.

I find that most uni educated whites I meet are NPC no matter the age. Those of us on the dissident right see the newest stupid narrative du jour pushed by the media and see through it easily. Most who have gone to university want to believe the narratives because doing so reinforces their sense of superiority over bad whites.

In a sense, elites are self-exiling into gated communities and prescient whites are self-exiling to rural secure enclaves; both in anticipation of a coming violent revolt. The.elites fear an imagined redneck hoard and the preppers foresee chaotic marauding gangs. The current zombie craze in movies and TV is a reflection of these fears. The more likely Doomsday scenario is the oft-repeated rise of tyranny and authoritarianism from the ashes of the old guard. South Africa will be an interesting leading indicator with a small but well armed minority going up against a large but dependent majority. Europe won’t be far… Read more »

South Africa? The Boers brought their problems on themselves. They shouldn’t have been providing food for those bastards all these years.

all I really wanted to reply with was “cynic !” but I was laughing at your comment for so long that the reply no longer seemed sufficient.
I had a short conversation with a literal Hollywood world saver and I asked him what he was going to do with the flood of “refugees” once the African continental population hits 5B…it was the end of the conversation.

One of the worst tragedies of the modern age is the NGO industry providing food and medical supplies to Africa so that its population can swell way beyond their low IQ ability to build civilizations.

I’ve recently read that average IQ of 90 is insufficient to achieve a ‘democracy’. The average IQ in Africa I believe is around 74.

And, while having some of the most fertile land on the planet, the people there can’t even feed themselves, let alone grow food for export.

It’s a place doomed to failure, and a spectacular one at that.

I believe that the impact of the two 20th century world wars (which were in many ways one war with a interregnum) is an essential element in understanding self-abnegation and exile in the West. Nationalism was identified as the primary culprit, but the yang of nationalism was religion. Both have been anathematized, with massive help from the, uh, “an intellectual class of rootless cosmopolitans” among us. My father, who served in WWII as a young man, would rail at me (a late Boomer) in the 1980’s and 1990’s that “Religion has done more harm that good in the world.” I… Read more »

Steve, I must repeat what one of the great rootless analysts (David Goldman, aka Spengler) revealed.

They learned the secret to victory in America’s civil war:
One third of two generations of fighting ages males must be killed, and then there will be victorious “peace” (islam).

WW1- the fathers
WW2- the sons
Unwon “police actions”- the grandsons

“White men of the older generation are seeing the world in which they were born slowly succumbing to the darkness of multiculturalism. Theirs is not a romanticism for that old age, but a growing anger at its loss.”

I believe lack of a link to the past would be a weakness, not a strength. It would also disqualify us as ‘conservatives’ b/c what would be we be ‘conserving’?? The link to some common loss is what would keep us all shooting (figuratively, feds) in the same direction. Otherwise, w/o that common loss it will be what rejectionist right groups always become, a dog’s cluster foxtrot breakfast of internal strife.

Materialism is not much of a culture to protect. If our Christianity were more prevalent, maybe whites would not have allowed things to progress to this point. But that’s exactly why Christianity was attacked and smeared, anti-church/Christianity being a key part of public school indoctrination.

Good stuff! I like the challenge you have presented with a broadened and well-articulationed historic perspective on the upcoming chaos. I gotta wonder though, did France have anything approaching the equivalent of a 2nd Amendment – I don’t mean constitutionally, just from the viewpoint of the widespread ownership of firearms (for hunting or protection) among those being exiled? With no serious counter to the power of the military and law enforcement (particularly when it is entirely controlled by others). But when the populous has their own force of arms, the math certainly changes. Once the major cities become ‘free-fire zones’… Read more »

OT, but the Fields story gets worse.

Heyer was found leaning forward against a front grill, three vehicles up from Fields’ car. His impact was so slight, she hadn’t moved, instead of being flung ass over teakettle.

Apparently dead of morbid obesity, heat, and overexcitement.

Everybody knows that car crash had nothing to do with Heather death.
The problem is that religious madness does not need evidence. If Fields was not guilty for Heather death, probably he was guilty for some other crimes. Christianity works the same way. Jesus was definitely no threat to Roman Empire but he was delivering anti Semitic hate speeches according to Bible. So real christian is happy that Jesus got what he deserved with other anti Semites like Hitler and Himmler. Fuck Jesus and support Israel. Religious madness is worst thing what can happen with any group.

The news surprisingly did…at first. Once the narrative was crystallizing, everything that deviated from the narrative was purged. Nothing can ever be deleted forever and a lot of tweets harvested from various journalists covering Charlottesville were archived before they were deleted. Mike Enoch of TRS fame sent those tweets over to Fields’ (maliciously?) incompetent attorney. It’s pretty telling that the best they could do for a sympathetic picture of Heyer is use a 15 year old picture of her whenever they talk about her. Kind of sad that they had to go that far back. Heyer was a very unhealthy… Read more »

You’re not doing the cause any good by spreading ignorance. The coroner’s report on Heather Heyer concluded that she died of blunt force injury to her torso. Her thoracic aorta was severed. Her femur was broken. Forensic scientists testified at trial that her DNA matched blood samples on Field’s car.

You are not doing good by spreading information that people in certain positions can not be communists or just liars.
I lived 16 years of my life in the Soviet Union so I would recommend a little precaution, when communist college graduate testifies or Richmond Pravda prints.

You cannot trust exiles. Machiavelli had this dialed 500 years ago. Listening to exiles, whether Jews, or Poles, or Cubans, or Persians, or Iraqis, had caused us no end of trouble. Of course the first has caused more problems than all the rest combined.

In my descent into shitlordism, I knew that we were never going to restore society to any previous period in time. The 1950s are considered the ideal but it led to the idealism of the 1960s. If we do win, and I am still optimistic that we will (even if it will take a while), our new period will have to be one based off of cautious optimism where we enact laws or a constitution or whatever that prevents the last 70 years from happening again. Whatever society we generate will have to have a “freedom from subversion” clause that… Read more »

White men predominantly have quite little problem with being exiles from our history. Many of them are so ignorant of history they’re not truly aware of it (they’ve been purposely kept ignorant, or given false pictures). The New Upper Class of Charles Murray’s ‘Coming Apart’ are well off financially, and still have good prospects for themselves. They only need to keep their heads down, mouths shut, and play the game, which is an easy trade-off for most of them, as modernity has crafted them into materialist degenerates, to the extent modernity has not conditioned them to embrace the hegemonic neoliberal/cult-Marx… Read more »

New “exiles” that jettison 2000 years of cultural inheritance because some nihilist WASP businessmen and degenerate navel gazing cosmo white gave them a hard time and wrecked our country and starting over with just the garbage of contemporary society in their veins?o whites.

These “exiles” will be the quintessential “men without chests”, they’ll believe in nothing, fight for nothing, have nothing.

Hopeful that the coming white kids are studying at the knee of the exiles. Learning the good things lost with an eye to regaining some measure of control. If whitey disappears, everyone’s for dinner and even the most rad leftoid knows this deep inside.
