Our Interregnum

One of the most remarkable things to happen in the West since the end of the Cold War has been the rise of identity politics over the last half decade. It is remarkable for a couple of reasons. One is that it has emerged in what economists consider to be a time of unrivaled prosperity. People should be happy and content, rather than angry, with post-national liberal democracy. A central tenet of liberal democracy is that the end point of human activity is to create a world of material plenty.

The other remarkable aspect is these movements are flourishing in the face of strong moral prohibition, often backed by force. It’s literally dangerous to be an identitarian in most of the West now. America is now a land that bans books and subjects dissenters to internal banishment. The titans of industry are studying China for ways to suppress internal dissent. Despite these efforts to anathematize identity politics, white people throughout the West are embracing identity politics.

The aggressive assault on dissidents is a direct result of the unpreparedness of the ruling classes. They really were convinced they had ushered in the post-historical moment as imagined by Francis Fukuyama. The great battles of political economy in the 20th century were settled. All the “isms” had been vanquished by liberalism and there was nothing left to discuss. The sudden reappearance of old cultures and old ideas about how people should organize themselves was like seeing a ghost.

Now, this is a good time to note that the phrase “identity politics” has been kicking around American political circles for decades. In the mouths of conservatives, it was always part of the grift they have been running on white people. It looks like an attack on left-wing tactics, but in reality it is an endorsement of Progressive morality. For the Left, it was always a cover for anti-white agitation. They could not come out directly in favor of anti-white polices, but non-white camp followers were free to do it.

The success of this game of good cop – bad cop played by the American political class is another reason they remain baffled by what’s happening. This game has worked for so long, its sudden failure is like the sun rising in the west all of a sudden. Perhaps a better metaphor is it seems as if all swans are now black. Everywhere political elites turn, the world is no longer as they imagined it. All the axioms upon which they based their world view are suddenly being called into question.

It turns out that Fukuyama was sort of right after all. The West had reached an endpoint after the Cold War. It was not the end of a great ideological battle, but the end point of the great multicultural project launched by the Frankfurt School following World War II. The West, particularly America, had become fully actualized as multicultural societies. They no longer possessed a core identity, based in biology, which informed their politics or restrained their politicians. It was just one big open marketplace.

The trouble is, you cannot have a nation without a sovereign identity and there can be no sovereign identity without a nation. This is the core insight of multiculturalism, which was never intended to strengthen the West but to destroy it. To have a multicultural society is to have no culture at all. Once the people’s sense of who they are is destroyed, the nation must follow with it. That is exactly what we see in the West as political classes struggle to perform their basic duties.

The reason for this, is that the people’s sense of who they are is what animates the political institutions of the state. That shared reality of a people is the soul of every nation, just as the soul animates the body. To kill it and simply try to artificially animate the body, is to create a Frankenstein’s monster. The modern Western state is now a collection of cultural parts robbed from graves around the world. It is neither organic nor natural, so it is always at war with normal human sensibilities.

Multicultural liberal democracy, when lying on the table, is ugly in appearance, but when animated it is truly horrifying. Multiculturalism becomes a monster that attacks everything around it, because at some level, like the mythical monster, it knows it is an abomination, a sin against creation. We have quickly moved from eradicating the people’s sense of identity to systemically eradicating the people. Instead of creating a new society, superior to the old, multiculturalism has destroyed the very essence of western society.

In addition to the end of the post-war cycle, we may also be at the end of a much longer cycle that began with the Enlightenment. The thinkers and philosophers who gave us liberal democracy had a mechanistic view of nature. This led them to see society as nothing but a collection of parts, like a watch. In order to make a better watch, the watchmaker simply had to improve its parts. Make a better spring or a better crystal and snap it into place. Liberal democracy is the full expression of this belief.

It turns out that human society is nothing like a watch and the people in it are not simply automata that can be tinkered with as necessary. Human society is the expression of the shared reality of the people. That shared reality is the result of actions, experiences and mating decisions made by their ancestors. Who they are is what they are. The Frenchman is French, because his ancestors were French, not because the map maker said he was born in France. The nation is the manifestation of this reality.

The confluence of these two end cycles, plus others forces like demographics and technology has brought us to this interregnum. The reason the ruling elites helplessly lash out at the gnats whirling about them is they are built for an age that is fading into the past. Their weapons are crude and destructive, but ultimately ineffective at halting the march into the abyss. The weird nostalgia of American politics is just another aspect of that effort to halt the momentum. It’s an effort to stop the clock.

Similarly, the incoherence and confusion among dissidents is due to the inability to break free from the Enlightenment ideas of liberal democracy. Those looking for an alternative, rummage around in the past for prior rejections. First it was the neo-reaction trying to revive the age of kings. Then it was the alt-right trying to revive 20th century fascism. Like clothes from a prior era, they were a poor fit and made the wearer look odd. They are answers to questions no one remembers, not the questions of today.

That’s why the on-going efforts to put Buckley Conservatism back together will fail. It was an answer to an old question. Similarly, libertarianism is in crisis, because it was a set of tools made for a tradesman who is no longer needed. Whether it is an effort to impose the old forms on the new opposition or re-brand the old stuff as a new form of nationalism, the effort must fail as it is an artifact of the past. The emerging opposition to the prevailing orthodoxy will be rooted in a rejection of its core principles, not an embrace of them.

Very true. despite our justifiable nostalgia for the great past of our lost country, the only way out is forward. We can look to the past for elements and ideas that we wish to incorporate into our new country and society, but there is no going back. You can do anything with the past but live in it.

I should not have expressed that idea mathematically.

The promises of Christianity and its moral teachings are not exclusively offered to a specific people but for anyone who accepts Christ as savior – accepts Christian morality.

The interregnum cannot last much more than another 20 years. It was always my fear that the proverbial shit would hit the fan just as I was too old to do much more than observe events from my bed.

A.B., this point about gross wealth inequality and social fabric is an important one, I feel. America’s prosperity in the last couple of generations was spread broadly in the population, and people have forgotten how fragile social cohesion can be. We take cohesion for granted, but it’s built on non-economic qualities of character that can gradually erode under the influence of resentment.

It’s probably difficult for those too young to have experienced it just how astonishing it was that the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union collapsed. Almost until it happened, it was unthinkable that the Berlin Wall would come down.

If you were around back then, it is probably easier to accept today that the whole system could collapse or change radically in a very short period of time, even if it is not obvious right now how that would come about.

In the 1980s, there were a number of books, a movie and even a tv miniseries about a Soviet-occupied US.

I’m glad you bring this up. I see an issue of not having enough people on our side having the trade skills to physically rebuild. Maybe the interim time between now and the great crash should be spent in emphasizing to the school age generations that these skills are important and methods of teaching the skills be focused upon. We sure as s##t don’t need any more managers.

Sure, the measures are terribly inaccurate.

I agree that the metrics they’re using are all stacked to produce the results they want. Just like the polls. The unemployment rate, for example doesn’t take I to account people who have simply stopped looking for work. It doesn’t properly reflect declining male employment rates — male employment is a sign of a healthy society. The more women want and need to work outside the home, the sicker the society is. It also doesn’t reflect the fact that most employment gains have gone to non-citizens. The inflation rate indices are carefully chosen to not reflect price increases in many… Read more »

True – it depends on what you define as the economy. Indicators can be cherry picked, as well as the data to get the result you are looking for. There are so many “inflation” indicators that it is almost impossible to get an accurate read. If you measure inflation using only items that have dropped or stayed flat in price (most electronic gadgets and non-essential consumer goods) inflation looks low. You add in meat prices, fuel (although that can be volatile), durable goods (e.g., cars), insurance and you get a whole different picture. Sh*t we need (or are required to… Read more »

Not true. It’s equal opportunity altruism, but that doesn’t make it any better.

Still scratching my head over the term, “white supremacist”. I know it’s used in a pejorative sense, but is there any more meaningless term to describe a non related, non-unified group of people?

In some of the old mid-century stories, the idea was that the bad guys planted ideas in people that would be triggered into action by using the key word or gesture. That has been put to wide use, and “white supremacist” is one of those trigger things, as are “white privilege” and “MAGA”. They are all signals to put into motion all of the cues to set people off into the narratives they have been trained to believe in.

I agree that the abortion issue is one of the issues to watch. The lefties went way overboard with wanting to kill the baby after its birth. Another issue the lefties go crazy on is gun control. The main action has been at the state level with a lot of non compliance in blue states and counties declaring that they would not enforce state laws, kind of a gun rights sanctuary area. The left does this with laws they don’t like and we will give it back to them.

Not so sure about that. My own trade is doing just fine. And the plumbers, electricians, dental hygienists, car mechanics, etc. in my town are all pretty busy these days. Don’t know what I’d have done if the guys who re-shingled my roof last year weren’t otherwise needed.

This piece is a very fine companion to VDH’s article over on American Greatness.

https://amgreatness.com/2019/06/23/crack-ups-at-the-crossroads-of-intersectionality/

Piggybacking on a couple of Z’s points:

1. Instead of multiculti as Frankenstein’s monster, perhaps the more apposite analogy would be multiculti as a golem unleashed on the West by Benjamin, Marcuse, Horkheimer and Adorno, and then sustained by second-wave cult-Marxists such as Derrida, Foucault, Barthes, Lyotard, Althusser and Deleuze.

2. The nation is the expression of the culture, and the culture is the expression of the race and ethnicity. That seems the proper formulation for what Z expresses about the nation.

The driver of all of this is the idea that people understand their environment as some sort of story or narrative. The traditional white-centered American narrative has been broken and discarded. In place of it has been the multi-culti -homo-globo thing, enforced with the idea that this new thing must be jammed down everyone’s throats. To believe the narrative is to be empowered to beat people over the head with it, so the story goes. Beyond that, people are swindled into defending these false narratives at all costs, not seeing the downside of that. Google and Facebook are the new… Read more »

The next two presidential elections will be the pivot point.

Once our enemies gain both houses and the presidency there will be nothing to hold them back. They can barely restrain themselves today. The organ grinders no longer control the monkeys.

2025 will be our 49BC.

BTW, our fetish for Trump getting to appoint more SCOTUS judges is the governing equivalent of the Maginot Line. If the anti-whites control the gov’t and the court says no to some action they’ve passed … they will be ignored, assuming out of fear they don’t simply ok everything anyway.

They use probing, calibration of messaging, and measurement of feedback. Coupled with the “isolate and destroy” strategy. So far, it is working for them. We are a remnant, a rounding error, and we probably way overestimate our numbers, because we are steeped in what we believe in. A reverse Pauline Kael thing.

Or, there are big numbers on our side, and they are invisible. The midterm elections got me over that idea, in a blackpilled sort of way.

I would say that every nation is forged by war. That’s how you unify all the warring factions, The guy that proved that was Professor Bismarck in 1862-70. Not to mention Professor Roosevelt in 1941-45. After the war national unity slowly falls apart as political actors enact my maxim that “politics is division.”

So, if we want to put the US back together again it will probably take a war.

Western nations are being led by metastasizing governments, and government is a living thing that places it’s own survival above all else. Failure to convert it’s citizens into hive-minded insects will not be tolerated, and tyranny will be the end result when all else fails. If conformity conversion cannot be obtained by soft memetic infection, then harsher methods will be employed as necessary. That is the nature of the coming battle, not a competition to see who wins the popularity contest.
