Knocking At The Door

One of the pitfalls of dissident politics is the temptation to succumb to despair, focusing only on the negative. Excessive cynicism is an escape, an indulgence, like libertarianism, where you get to pretend the sideline is the high ground. Cynicism is a cost free way of both participating in politics, but standing outside of it, as if you are above it all. It has been a feature of modern conservatism as a way of keeping the people from noticing that they are being scammed.

The truth is, politics at this level is not about elections or public policy. It is about effective social change, by changing the frame of reference. That’s a lot like steering a super tanker into port. A little nudge here. A little there. In the moment, you see little progress, but eventually, the tanker does move. That’s the point of dissident politics in the current age. It is moving things a little here and a little there in the effort to make our target audience aware of what’s happening to them.

An example of one of those tiny little bits of evidence that the ship is moving a little bit our way is this post from NRO, of all places. It is an interview with Oren Cass, who is the director of a new think tank in the Imperial Capital. The mission statement of American Compass says it is “to restore an economic consensus that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity.” Put another way, they claim to oppose what we call marketism.

Another Washington think tank is hardly an inspiration to our side, but Oren Cass has gotten a lot of attention from influential people. This twitter thread spelled out the problem of worshiping economic data as an end in itself. More important, he did so in the language technocrats can understand. That is an important step, as it introduces dissident topics to people lacking the language and mental constructs to understand much of what is discussed on this side of the great divide.

A good example of this is the response from another NRO pod person to that Oren Cass twitter thread. Like so many in that hive, he clearly does not understand the concept of trade-offs. He certainly is clueless when it comes to concepts like social capital or community capital. He’s stuck at the place where knowing that the big number is more than the small number gets a gold star. Still, Cass is able to speak to him in language he can grasp, which is important.

Now, this does not signal a revolution of thought inside the Imperial Capital, but it does suggest some people inside are looking over the divide to this side. More important, instead of just assuming the people on this side of the great divide are evil or stupid, they are wondering why so many people are heading this way. The first step to legitimacy is often when the people in charge simply start taking their critics seriously, rather than treating them as a pestilence to be eliminated.

To be clear, Oren Cass is not “one of us” and never will be. In fact, if the inner party decides to round us up and ship us off to camps, he will be right there with them, as he is them and not us. The ruling class, along with their attendants, define themselves in opposition to us. Who they are is explicitly not us. They are the occupiers, the colonial pod people, ruling over the rest of us. Oren Cass and his project are simply a flicker of doubt, a sign that all is not well inside the walls.

A sober minded person would wonder why it has taken so long for anyone inside the walls to notice the problems outside the walls. After all, paleo-conservatives were predicting these sorts of problems forty years ago. Pat Buchanan ran on these issues, as well as Ross Perot. Trump is in the White House, in large part, because of the economic realities just dawning on people inside the walls. Heck, Bernie Sanders exists because of the things Cass identified in that thread.

It is the big tanker ship. A thing normal people cannot grasp is just how different the world inside the walls is compared to regular America. In the Imperial Capital, it is always a booming economy. Every day is Fat Tuesday, because tomorrow is always fat Tuesday as well. It’s always good times in the Washington for people who make their living in politics. Imagine a college campus the size of a city, but instead of students roaming about it is adult who work in politics.

This is why all past political reform efforts have failed. When the road goes on forever and the party never ends, reform sounds like ingratitude. From the Tea Party to the Bernie Bros, to the people inside, these movement strike the revelers as irrational ingratitude by people who don’t know how good they have it. But, the dissident right is knocking at the door and some people are starting to listen. It is a tiny example of how things are moving our way, ever so slowly, like that tanker ship.

Solid stuff here. The black pill is indeed both a crutch and a dodge and sometimes it does pay to take stock of how much things have started to move our way, however incrementally. As to the interview, though, the National Review guy is like a Moonie. Despite the universe of evidence that indicates people are not in fact doing well, he spouts clichés and shibboleths that have been debunked again and again by facts on the ground; he seems quite taken aback by the answers. This degree of cluelessness indicates the daunting task of turning the tanker around as… Read more »

Remember Patrick Deneen? He hit the same brick wall Cass is about to hit. https://www.amazon.com/Why-Liberalism-Failed-Politics-Culture/dp/0300223447. Hopefully, Cass will put a few cracks in that wall. Cass is a step in the right direction. The articles Zman has linked to are worth the time to read, just don’t translate terms like “community” into what one of us would call community. Cass take a very big step in the right direction with one critical ingredient missing: demographics. Read the comments on the twitter thread, they are encouraging.

Really, a murdered country looks very, very different. Trust me, we murdered Iraq. Nearly murdered Syria. A murdered country looks like Iraq and Syria.

The government is in the hands of hostile and frankly occupying forces – the good news is they’re weak, craven degenerates – and we the people are merely guilty of being asleep at the switch.

I wonder if any genuine catastrophe is avoidable. I’m not talking about natural disasters, but human-induced catastrophic events. Was WWI avoidable? All kinds of actions had to fall into place to make that war happen. It’s as if it were an expression of the existing system, not an exception to it. I think we’re in the same situation.

Peak neoconservatism was after the failures of the Perot and Buchanan campaigns, then later the purge of Sam Francis as a syndicated columnist, along with Joe Sobran disappearing from many newspapers. Things like immigration and free trade were no longer allowed to be debated in the mainstream and meanwhile war raged on. VDare, Amren and Lawrence Auster and Steve Sailer were still doing their thing, but it was far in the background. Neoconservatism reigned supreme. Then came Trump.

You are absolutely correct about Trump. Much of the Dissident Right criticism of him is little more than the Beautiful Loser mentality Z described. We, or at least our children and grandchildren, will look back in amazement at what he did in such a compressed period of time. It is easy to forget you are winning while the battle rages, but we are winning, perhaps too late to forestall the awful consequences but early enough not to be devoured. We do have to reassess what winning is.

I only blame him for those things entirely within his remit to remedy: Immigration and War. Immigration was just an issue for him to run on. His businesses always employed illegals and didn’t implement E-verify (which, by the way, he’s defunded in every budget and no longer supports.) His position on the ME wars of choice is far more interesting. He correctly blamed the Saudis’ for 9/11 more than a decade before he entered politics. Then he overrides congress to give them sensitive military technology and wants them to continue training here. Explain that. I’m all ears.

I’d push back strongly on the notion that Trump has “kicked open doors.”

What he has done is kick at doors, without actually breaking them, which just tells the enemy which doors need to be reinforced or replaced.

His one great virtue is that he’s proven we can’t vote our way out of this. That’s the only reason I can’t say we’d have been better off if Hillary had won.

I’ve had a change of opinion on this point recently. Previously, I also thought the demographics bomb would go off around 2033/34 but no longer do.

In the ancient Near East there was an empire we call The Assyrian Empire which weaponized multiculturalim. When the Assyrians conquered a country, they would deport (IMS) roughly 80% of the population; replacing the deportees with multiple groups from throughout the empire. Each group would have its own individual racial, ethnic, cultural and linguistic identity. As now strangers in a strange land, usually far from their ancestral homeland, these groups would work very hard to retain their identity. This would make the sort of political unity necessary to a successful rebellion a virtual impossibility. Thus the Assyrians solved the problem… Read more »

People are starting to look over the fence at our thing, in part, because Trump has showed up and does not appear to be a flash in the pan. His followers will stick with him, that is clear.

My favorite piece from March! Excellent tanker analogy, and I loved the reminder of optimism! Realism and rationalism have a gravitational tendency towards nihilism, (I.e.

Obviously you don’t look very deeply into immigration questions. Buchanan made it clear back in ’92: immigrants such as Polacks, Wops, Krauts, and Micks come from CHRISTIAN cultures (as did the original colonists).

The culture makes all the difference. Mohammedans are not Christian; nor are Confucians, nor Hindi. That doesn’t mean that they are “bad people.” But it DOES mean that there will be a Kulturkampf.

Whites are having an identity forced on them by the rest of the world, because the non-whites don’t make any of the distinctions that you recount.

Their rectums prolapse and they soil their sexy black leggings and sexy Victoria secret panties (shh! It’s secret!). They can’t control their urination the same way ever again and they routinely urinate on… Read more »

Hear, hear!
Whiskey, being in the industry, was one of the first to point out that Madison Avenue was owned by Eskimos who hire 90+% women (and gays) as judas goats, as sirens, the voices leading the others over the cliff with ‘naughty’ fads and fashions.

Women are afraid to speak out against other women in public- and will stab them in the back in private.

Not saying we must change their instincts and nature. Can’t anyways. Only to expect them.

My fiftyish female lawyer told me last weekend that the source of much evil in the US are the covens (my word not hers) of fiftyish divorced women sitting around telling each other how wonderful it is to be free and how when it’s not wonderful it’s all the fault of white men not paying attention to them.

(btw, is it coincidence that the only suggestion that my spell-checker has for “fiftyish” is “shifty”)

Dating site data shows the vast majority of white women prefer white men. Mixed couples are like gays. Far more popular on television than in real life.

And sometimes that tanker sinks before getting into port. Or the captain orders all the naysayers to walk the plank. Or the crew mutinies and throws the captain overboard, then changes course for a better port of call. Ancient wisdom, keep your options open and your powder dry.

When your enemies are forced to use your language and address your concerns, even if it’s to blunt and corrupt them, you are gaining ground. Most of what we call civilization and culture moves almost unnoticed like the tide in the middle of the sea. Events and personalities are the flotsam and jetsam of history. The tide is moving our way. Candidate Trump rode the tide. Once elected he’s been a net negative. Cville was a PR disaster, the media, pop culture, the Justice Dept are at war with us…and yet we grow in numbers. Some surveys have 75% of… Read more »

Again, hear hear! Of course the Concerned will try to co-opt- their instinct is to run in front of the parade. Flotsam floats on the tide.

No, that is what happens when a clever enemy infiltrates your movement. and that is what’s happening with Conservatism Inc. They are slowly using DR – populistic terms to take over. It’s not the success Zman thinks it is. The DR is a basically a big fat joke. Just some disgruntled whites and that’s ti. and you haven’t even seen the DOJ drop the hammer on us. You have no idea how ruthless and barbaric our leaders really are. . You think their constant mantra of wanting us dead and gone are a joke? Well it’s not. What do you… Read more »

Not an original point by any means, but I think the big difference between the Buchanan/Francis/Sobran years and now is the internet. To put it simply, it was a lot easier to fence off and/or disappear people in those days. But now the internet can keep ideas spreading from tiny and even one-man (hi, Zman!) platforms. As well as resurrect earlier, memory-holed voices. Moreover, the internet allows us to draw strenght and ideas from the very far right, the verboten right, which even open nationalists might pretend not to be engaging with as a matter of optics–but which is a… Read more »

Just imagination the rage that this Sobran piece from 1997 would inspire today. “Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost inexpressible. It’s Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world to itself. Other races feel like subjects of Western power long after colonialism, imperialism, and slavery have disappeared. The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled good will, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation. The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it. And,… Read more »

Zman, have you been talking to Rachel Bovard over at American Greatness? A few hours ago I went back and relistened to your Marketism podcast. Afterward, I noticed her article (from today) on the same theme. Looks like the theme is getting traction.

“Imagine a college campus the size of a city, but instead of students roaming about it is adult who work in politics.” That’s exactly what every Blue, liberal city is now — a big college campus. Craft beer, Starbucks, good pizza, freely available pussy, weed, Jewish intellectuals, hippies in tie-dye, gun control, and a smattering of compliant Negroes, handpicked by affirmative action. All financed by someone else’s money, with women giving the orders. As a former white collar intellectual now looking for a job, I am struck by the starkness of the divide between the effete snobs in the bubble… Read more »

James Burnhams “The Machiavellians: Defenders of Freedom” was correct – politics and rational thinking have little to do with each other!

The economy has been distorted with policies galore to funnel taxpayer funds into Solyndra scams, wind farms, POC professorships etc and it’s not about to change anytime soon. Nothing changes without actual numerical representation – especially culture. Now that the POCs joined blacks to form a “majority” demand block, it’s only going to get more dysfunctional. Their rapid ascent and incorporation into institutional positions is like having gays in the military. Soon they will have their own networks within the institutions and the result is true third world government, irrespective of “Technology”. One way to win the numbers game is… Read more »

Trump is pro-black, pro-gay marriage, pro-immigration because he wants to attract white boomer voters who still believe civil right
But also Party told him that if you want to stay in politics, you have to be pro-brown and pro-homosexual
Current system literally prevent any pro-white candidate enter the system

there’s massive immune system to filtering hell out white people who doesn’t hate so much their kin

Well good.

What’s my social capital ROI on the $5 a month or week or whatever it is?

Say something nice about veterans, or guns, or something … even knives.
