The Organization Man

One of the funny things about doing what I do here is that I often stumble onto things that get no play in the press, but are on people’s minds. I’ll write about a topic that interests me, but is not in the news, and it will get a ton of comments and links back from people passing it around. Our side of the great divide tends to have a different focus than what you see in the above ground world, but not always. Sometimes, the stuff on our mind at the moment, regarding current events, is on their minds too.

The topic of last week’s podcast is a good example. I did not think it would be all that interesting to people, but I was wrong. I got a lot of long e-mails from people about what they are doing in their community. I’ve also seen postings in the so-called conservative media about the topic this week. It turns out that a lot of people are thinking about how and why they should be joining and building local communities, where the likeminded can socialize and talk about this stuff.

Thinking about it, I suspect the reason is lots of people are looking around at what’s happening and coming the conclusion that the wheels are coming off the cart. What’s happening in Washington is an insurrection. The normal order is no longer respected by the people who are supposed to maintain order. Instead, the political establishment is in open rebellion against the very laws that make it possible for them to be an establishment. How many clicks before there are tanks in the streets?

It’s not just Washington. That story of the Mormon group getting ambushed over the border resonates with people. It would be one thing if they were in the Congo or down near the isthmus. That’s far away and people can imagine it is savage. The border is their backyard, literally and figuratively. People can imagine that spilling into their towns and neighborhoods. Not only is our government doing nothing about it, the establishment celebrates it. Their indifference is breathtaking.

At various times in my life I have been in situations where things go sideways and the normal order breaks down. The white people, for reasons they never consider, just show up where they think they need to show up, ready to take direction, lend a hand to restoring order and helping those who need help. It is our nature and why civilization exists in the first place. That is maybe what we are seeing. The collapse of normal order is getting people to seek out their neighbors and start figuring out what to do.

I’m not in the camp that thinks there will be a sudden collapse and we will be thrown into a war of all against all. Instead, I think decline is like an uneven staircase, where society takes small imperceptible steps down, then a big step or two and then some more little steps again. Just as progress is fits and starts, regress is fits and starts too. We could be about to hit one of the bigger steps. A year from now, the current year will feel like a foreign country. There is nowhere to go but down.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.

Agree about the uselessness of trying to persuade left-wing lunatics and bioleninists. I think we’ve got to look at our thing as a kind of missionary work, and focus on converting the convertible. A gun-loving MAGAman is, for example, a better candidate to spend an hour of political talk on than a wine aunt. (Although I’ve never actually tried it, I imagine it would be instructive to examine some missionary handbooks.) And never forget that reality is on our side. That’s the one wind that blows our way. We’re trying to get people from 2 +2 = 5 to 2… Read more »

I could add, be gentle with boomers and libertarians if you think you can win them over. (I know that we go hard on them here, but that’s among the Redpill Club members.) Remember that these are potentially future /ourguys/. If you call a libertarian or boomer a retard or moron to his face, you’re never going to win him over; he’ll just dig in (trust me, LOL.) Better a metaphorical arm around the shoulder. There’s one exception: if one of them is truly unconvertible, then you can ridicule him if the real audience is not him but some other… Read more »

Frankly, I’m very cautious about winning over people to our side. In the community sense I assess whether they have skills or resources to offer. But if they’re a career bureaucrat or office-weenie – specifically someone who lives off the production of others – and have zero skills to share in sustainable community, then why bother? I suppose it’s fine to win over a convert to vote correctly (or withdraw from the charade altogether), but in the community-building sense I’m looking for skin-in-the-game, and those with medical, agricultural, trade skills. Rarely – VERY rarely – do I meet people on… Read more »

County courthouse, indeed. I’d urge people to consider what’s happening in San Francisco, where the son of Weather Underground’s Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert (Chesa Boudin) is still close to becoming District Attorney. He might not get it this time — their byzantine voting system may keep him out, and he’s running against a woman — but they’re getting closer and closer. Gilbert is serving life for the Brinks robbery in Long Island decades ago — he could’ve gotten a deal, but refused the court’s authority over him. That’s the family background of someone who might be the district attorney… Read more »

The very fact that you may question whether you’d make the cut would sway things in your favor.

These things go a long way. Another thing I’ve learned about community-building – everyone can’t be a leader, and everyone doesn’t have to be master of a trade.

Good points, CAPT S, but (and here I’m speaking generally, not as a rebuttal to your comment) it might be useful to think of “our side” on multiple levels. At perhaps the core level or most constrained circle there is the “side” of “Do I want this guy in my lifeboat?” but there is also the much wider circle of “Is this a decent person that I can persuade to support the same issues that I support?” While it’s good to plan for the worst case (being the lifeboat situation), it would not do to plan and work toward only… Read more »

We should always check our assumptions.

Some assume that MAGA CivNat evangelicals are closest to becoming WNs

But I am not aware of many instances when they have actually made the transition.

It’s a shame that they never conducted the “what red pilled you” poll they were talking about on the TRS forum, back when it was a central hub of the Alt-Right. You could have gotten some interesting data.

But my impression was that it was mostly ex-leftists and ex-libertarians, very few ex-conservatives.

The conservative temperament may not be suited to “dissidence”.

Angelo Codevilla recently did a Q&A interview on Tablet.

He, however, liked to question things and fiddle with the status quo way of things, so he washed out and became a teacher and author.

Had a family friend, 31 years in the university admin trenches and a union steward as well, retired a few too early because she was forced out by a lesbo feminista who wanted her job.

You teachers spend years walking on eggshelves, avoiding tripwires while penned up with feral animals. Heartbreaking, really, but you might’ve avoided a similar hatchet job by the Woke.

I’m thinking that the rabid over-emphasis on national/international topics is a classic piece of misdirection. It shifts our focus from things we can fairly easily change – the local arena, to those that have us fulminating into impotent paralysis.

Let the Holocaustian myth die of old age & irrelevance rather than outright debunking. Trying to set the record straight just helps keep the subject alive and current, which is exactly what (((they))) want. The more they say “never forget,” the better a strategy grounded in letting our people forget sounds.

Never explain, never apologise. It’s my natural bent to throw a party and raise Cain wherever I go, so I am done with making an earnest, serious fool of myself.

Hitler should’ve defended his borders and the Sudenten wheat fields (what became Czechoslavakia), not spread his damned army all over the continent. Should’ve focused on securing fuel, kept it to the Bagdad-to-Berlin railway, Italy’s Libyan and Ethiopian oil shipping, and Japan’s Phillipine fuel depots. What the heck was his navy doing in US-British shipping lanes? The Danzig corrider failed, but the Poles would’ve accepted a permanent exchange of Germans for the transit camp Jewish workers. Israel should’ve been located in the Pale, where it had been before. He over-reached, spreading all over the map, and got 14 million Germans murdered,… Read more »

One alternative to all this is to get serious about playing the Left’s game on the big scale. It might be the only real alternative. Here’s what I mean. Take the IRA as an example. They were fighting against somebody who wanted something. That’s a different critter than what we have now, which is globohomo mimetic rage. Our opponents don’t want anything at all – they’re furious and are looking for scapegoats. I think that suggests these local, quiet groups are not going to fly under the radar, since the entire point of the Left is to find and punish… Read more »

“But we’ve been trying to yield enough ground to the other side to have them be satisfied and go away for decades…”

Speaking for myself nothing about any strategy I believe in relies on them ever being satisfied. I agree that they can’t be satisfied, although I disagree that they’re merely raging. They want something – White dispossession & perpetual mass-curb-stomping until extinction. Relying on satisfying that thirst would indeed be self-defeating.

We’re looking to exploit the limits of their competence, capabilities & resources, not the limits of their ambition or rage, which are boundless.

“Kulak genocide-grade thinking.” That’s what I immediately thought when I read about then candidate Obama back before his ascendancy.

Acronym for “Dems R the Real Racists”

This tactic is frequently used by cuckservatives like Ben Shapiro and Dinesh d’Souza.
This is a futile tactic, because it accepts and reinforces the left’s framing of race issues.
Dinesh d’Souza wrote yet another book about DR3. You know what they say about people who do the same thing over and over but expect a different result?

One big advantage we have that few people ever talk about is the fact that the left has destroyed everything.

I hate the IRA’s guts. They were scum. I’m just saying they were extremely good at insurgency. I don’t know the details but Peter Hitchens, Christopher Hitchens’ brother, a black-pilled UK patriot, says the Good Friday Agreement was the UK’s loss. If that’s true, the IRA beat the Western country w the strongest record of beating insurgencies, on their own doorstep. Hate them all you want. But they evidently knew how to say ‘FU’ to state power disagreeable to them. So I’m asking, why was the IRA willing to go so far, and why did they get so much support,… Read more »

Some color on that IRA thing. This is what I saw over there in the ‘80s. The English, who run the UK, really look at the Irish (including their own side, Ulster) as little better than animals. The six Ulster counties cling to the UK, but across the Irish Sea, the embrace is a cold and mostly nonexistent one. Awkward… The British garrisoned up Ulster, and the spying and surveillance were omnipresent and probably very good. But the soldiers sent out to patrol the streets were wet-behind-the-ears newbies who were scared to death, simply trying to escape alive and not… Read more »

Okay, you obviously know a lot more about the situation on the ground there than I do. I’m just wondering why they haven’t been cut to pieces by the British state long ago. The British sent their sharpest cutlery after them, they weren’t fooling around. And I mean, if a bunch of anti-replacers tried something today, would it even last 30 minutes. I don’t ‘like’ the IRA. But they evidently knew how to run a covert operation against serious state opposition for a handful of decades or so. That’s impressive, even if you re bunch of evil psychos.

The thing is, London knows that if you publicly take out one of the IRA, everyone in Ireland is related to everyone else, and you get a hundred new converts to the cause against you. Also, London didn’t really want to “get” anyone, they just wanted the troubles to go away somehow. The key element to the whole thing, IMO, is the unspoken reality that Ulster is actually a burden to London, like the ne’er do well sibling that you can’t get rid of. There is this weird triangle between London, Ulster, and the Republic that is simply unique to… Read more »

Short answer to your specific take on the British military, the surveillance and spying were very good, to head off more terrorism at home, but all London did on the ground in Ulster was throw scared recruits at the problem, and their heart wasn’t much in it. The IRA didn’t actually “win” anything meaningful in the streets; they and the UVF on the other side basically fought to a draw and everyone went home, leaving the status quo mostly unchanged. The IRA instilled a sense of terror into many civilians and British soldiers, though, for whatever that was worth.

The IRA had state support from the Eire Gov. They were allowed to cross the border unhindered.
If the British had ignored international law and pursued them across the border, the troubles would have been ended much sooner.
The only reason the troops didn’t want to serve there is because they were under strict instructions not to engage and defend themselves.

The IRA is not a valid comparison for our situation, for several reasons. 1. The IRA were marxists and so had the support of the left everywhere. 2. They had considerable financial and political support provided by Irish-Americans. 3. They had the tacit and, sometimes, overt support of the Irish Republic where they could also hide in safety. 4. They were fighting a war against a foe (the British) who were constrained by laws, decency and political pressure.

Now, ask yourself this: will we have even one of those things?

I like the direction Z’s pointing for how we approach and prioritize online activism and real life organizing. As we touched on in the post on Scandza, the risk-reward of academic-style conferences may be net-negative going forward. Publicly announcing ourselves to the enemy so that we can meet essentially in private to preach to our own choir seems to offer the worst of both worlds – minimal potential positive exposure/recruiting opportunities, maximum risk of doxxing, arrest and media-smearing. Without a competitive media presence, we can’t bend that curve. Z says all that needs be said on the uselessness of social… Read more »

Mark Collett and Laura Towler recently organize and conducted a private poll. They planned it quietly and conducted it without any fanfare.  The number of people they interacted with were impressive. Then they released the findings onto every platform they could. It’s had a real effect in opening up the conversation on immigration especially within the white working class. Their motivation in doing this was the BBC having reported that Britain’s current immigration policy had 97% approval.  Their findings within the white community were almost an inverse of what the BBC had peddled.  Mark, Laura and their team concentrate on… Read more »

The IRA prisoners in the Maze weren’t demanding political prisoner status, they wanted to be treated as prisoners of war – that is soldiers, POWs instead of criminals. > not a small point. POWs have more status and cred, honor than criminals. Its not a small point then, now or ever. POWs mean its a war, and your side has soldiers and by inference a country. It was 10 men dead in the Hunger Strike, Bobby Sands was just then most famous. It absolutely did change the fortunes of the IRA especially in Ireland.

The model is not Ireland but Spain in the Peninsular War. This is actually the model of People’s War for Clausewitz, Mao, et al.

With our enormous territory and all that red on the map a good reference is Mao “On Protracted War” 1938- he was referring to the Japanese. At that time.
