Supporting The Cause

Since we are rapidly running out of road in 2019, it seems like a good time to address some common questions that come up from time to time. Something that has gone unnoticed over the last year is the number of people moving into dissident politics is growing, despite the efforts of the ruling class. When big shot pundits feel comfortable using terms like “cloud people” in public, it suggests the people on the other side of the great divide are at least looking over at what’s happening here.

A question that comes up with some frequency is what people can do to support the cause of dissident politics. It makes sense. Once you have come to terms with the fact we are in the demographic age, you want to support your team. There’s also the fact that people attracted to this type of politics are the type used to solving problems and fixing things that are broken. Sitting around bitching about things being broken is not what comes natural to those drawn to this side of the great divide.

The first rule of organizing is to develop as many on-ramps as possible for people to come into your thing. The reason outsider politics remains fringe is it tends to have just one entry point and that door is guarded by weirdos. The libertarian movement never got out of the valley of weirdos, because it deliberately disconnected itself from the mainstream, despite so much help from Conservative Inc. The key is offering many paths to entry and not being ideological about those paths.

For example, 2020 is an election year. There are few good candidates running, but there are some worth supporting. No, they are not “our guys” and no, winning elections will not result in the changes we seek. The way forward for us is not going to be through the ballot box, but elections can open doors to our side. Despite all the screw-ups and mistakes, Trump has opened a lot of doors for us. Lots of people had their eyes opened about demographics through the issue of immigration.

If politics is your thing, consider supporting these candidates:

Again, there is no voting our way out of the problems of democracy, but engaging in the process can open doors to our side. A guy like King winning is social proof to a lot of people who quietly agree with us, but maybe don’t know it. This was the sole value of Trump winning in 2016 and will be the only value of his winning again in 2020. It validates the opinions of people who are heading this way. When you learn that your taboo thoughts are not uncommon, it liberates the soul.

There is another angle to this. If you are in these areas where populist candidates are running, even if it is a guy running for dog catcher, volunteer for the campaign. What you will find is that there are other bad thinkers doing the same thing. These campaigns have become an underground meetup for people in dissident politics to recruit people into local groups. If you are in a local group, find a candidate close to our side and get your guys to volunteer. It’s a great recruiting tool.

That is, of course, the main thing we should be doing. Getting people of like mind together in real life is the foundation of any movement. The story of every successful mass movement is normal people getting together in real life for fellowship, support and community building. If you don’t know anyone local, sign up for AIM. They have local groups all over now. It’s not just young people either. They have men of all ages in their chapters. It is a good thing to support.

Another way to engage likeminded people in real life is to attend events where our people meet, like American Renaissance. They will be holding their annual convention in May this year. It has not been announced, but the tentative date is the last weekend of May. There will be other events coming up like the Northwest Forum, which is held in Washington State. There are a lot of plans for events in the works this year and they will be posted here and elsewhere as the details emerge.

Finally, if the best you can do is throw money at the cause, there is no shame in that as there is no shortage of donors in this thing. American Renaissance and VDare are two groups that do a lot for the dissident cause. Solo acts like Steve Sailer and Paul Ramsey are examples of individuals, who can always use a few bucks to help keep the lights on and food on the table. Paying NetFlix every month may ease the pain of your demise, but giving that money to dissidents may save your kind.

It’s not just about donating to our guys. You can also buy the books written by our guys, which is is a great way to support our media. Conservative Inc. is a great book by one of our great young writers. It’s a good book to give to your curious normie friend. If you are into fiction, pick up a copy of Faction by Karl Dahl. For something witty and funny, there is Galaxy Mindset. Greg Johnson has a lot of books for the dissident reader and he can always use our support.

Of course, the best thing you can do, the most important thing you can do, to support the cause is be a prince among men in your daily life. Men follow men. By setting a high standard in your personal life and being a respectable face to skeptical people about these issues, you become one of those many on-ramps to our thing. If you are the sort of person people admire, they will admire your politics. The reddest red pill is the realization that you are the message. Never forget it.


For sites like this to exist, it requires people like you chipping in a few bucks a month to keep the lights on and the people fed. It turns out that you can’t live on clicks and compliments. Five bucks a month is not a lot to ask. If you don’t want to commit to a subscription, make a one time donation. Or, you can send money to: Z Media LLC P.O. Box 432 Cockeysville, MD 21030-0432. You can also use PayPal to send a few bucks, rather than have that latte at Starbucks. Thank you for your support!

Already in the process of picking a roster of 2020 candidates to support, though emphasizing those that can take back districts lost in 2018. Know this doesn’t meet the ideological purity test, but there is just as much utility in removing the left center portion of the Democrats–and leaving the party in the hands of the Tide Pod Evita wing. I also have to be careful about getting on searchable databases. We’ve already got nutters using databases to search up Trump contributors around here.

Acceleration is under-appreciated due to many things, residual patriotism among them.

What’s best for “America” is no longer what’s best for Us, and it hasn’t been for a long time. I know there’s a spectrum of dissidence around here but I think being “post-American” is a good defining line.

We’re almost universally united in looking for a better, different future and moving past the idea that the USA as a 50-state CivNat multicultural union is either worthy or capable of preservation or restoration.

A lot of the problem with all Leftist revolutions, whether the kind they had in Russia or China or the slower moving cultural revolution of the last 50 years here is that they target the most productive people in society as objects of derision and destruction. This makes sense from the point of view of the *mechanics* of revolution. If you are a cynical elitist who craves power but are not currently IN power, any society has a ready-made rabble formed from the left side of the Bell Curve types.

Juri, as things stand in the West there’s nothing stopping that from happening now. No establishment-recognized opposition force would stand in the way of totalitarian measures being used against BadThinkers. – see Con, Inc. or the neoliberal defenders of “democracy.”

The only thing we can end up with through acceleration is a more honest, overt tyranny rather than the velvet glove, stab-in-the-back variety we already have.

“Paying NetFlix every month may ease the pain of your demise, but giving that money to dissidents may save your kind.”

This is an excellent point and if you totaled up all the subscriptions to the pozzed out stuff like this including your cable subscription you can take that money and donate it monthly to someone that doesn’t hate you. All these devices are just propaganda machines but you can take control of what you expose yourself to. Even z-man is a form of propaganda but I’ve chosen to embrace it

Watching almost any TV show from the 1970s, 80s, or even 90s is a tremendous eye-opener. Most of them would never be permitted today because of how politically incorrect (i.e., realistic) they are. Jokes in the sitcoms offend all the protected groups. The day is not far off when these shows will be taken off streaming media because of hurty feelings.

I’ve always agreed with that position Z-man and hope others will see the light there as well. The last politician here that I had the most alignment with got his head handed to him after one term in office. How am I or the “cause” better off with him out and a Lefty in? No, I’d have been better off with him a bit less in your face and at least punching in the right direction. But I do recognize and respect those “accelerationists” out there in the group.

That comes from a site that I think was called Stuff White People Like. They had a gag primer for black folks on getting along with whites.

It went something like,

White people like St. Paddy’s day and are cool with letting you tag along and will even buy you beer and shots. Eventually they will begin to tell you about how their Irish ancestors were once enslaved and discriminated against here in America. If you want the white/Irish people to keep buying you drinks DO NOT SAY “Yeah, but you’re white now.”

Another version of Z’s idea would be to identify obscure races for offices nobody votes for, run a respectable-looking, likeable person as a DR candidate with no real expectations of actually winning, and use the campaign as a pretext for networking and organizing, forming structures to be put to good use later. One practice that Jews have which is extremely useful and practical, something the DR should imitate, is this: they form seventy-bazillion tax-exempt non-profit organizations, all fueled from small donations.

I dont think dissidents can personally underestimate the power of defining space in their lives for art. It can be a balm to the frustration, anger and worry that accompanies dissident politics. Carving out time for good music, visiting art museums, or personal creations (even if it is craft or artisanal pursuits) help armor the soul and remind us why we fight for our ancestors.

First, common ground. Everyone hopes that catastrophe can be avoided by a grassroots rebirth of commonsense and peaceful change leading to amicable solutions to the many problems that currently afflict us. Awakening “others” and building communities of common interest is “mainstream” social medicine and the option of first resort. BUT, if that doesn’t work in time, there needs to be a Plan B. Survival is the imperative, not feelgood glad-handing in coffee klatches. Some of us need to work on that problem too.

Meme – the most important thing about optics is getting the message across that we’re not a single movement that can be tarred with one brush.

After Trump’s election but before his inauguration Oliver Stone’s series The Putin interviews aired and in it he asked Putin what he thought of trump and what was going to happen and Putin’s response was, America has a vast bureaucracy, and Trump will be very limited in anything he can do because of it.

I have no quarrel with your premise that school board seats are often uncontested and therefore present an opportunity.

However, if we wanted to make a difference, we would soon have to be a difference.

He supports strengthening background checks. He supported the banning of bump stocks. He has also sent mixed signals on red-flag laws. Third, he voted to prevent the President from lifting sanctions against a number of Russian companies.

“The libertarian movement never got out of the valley of weirdos” because libertarians tend to be progressives with autism. If you cured their social blindness, you’d get a bunch of ordinary center-leftists. Uncured, you get “muh individualism” because most people object to sacrificing (via taxes, regulatory compliance, etc.) for the benefit of others when they perceive no connection to them. They have trouble grasping social relationships except as analytical constructs, and they’ve rationalized the defect into an ideology.

It’s more an attitude of mind than a political movement. I use it as a first check on anything: Why does this need anything other than free association? and then, if it does, What’s the lowest organizational level at which it can be achieved? (Subsidiarity)
then, How do we keep it under control?
As soon a what is the antithesis of politics becomes a political movement, you know the grifters have taken over.
