Ethnic Nationalism vs. White Nationalism

From Colin Woodard’s American Nations

I have felt compelled to write this post because I feel that I have not made it sufficiently clear why I defend the political views that I do on this blog. In time I may amend, or modify this post to clarify my position. It boils down largely to the fact that a house divided cannot stand. If a political nation includes large factions of people who disagree on everything political and hate each other’s guts for it, there is no reason to keep the country in one piece. Doing so results in wasteful damage to persons, property, and culture. In addition to this, the human species is biologically diverse, and without a means of preserving this biodiversity, it would be impossible to continue in whatever evolutionary path our particular ancestors have been in for tens of thousands of years up to the present time. Melting everyone into the same genetic pot would make whatever evolutionary adaptations we possess different to other human populations to be thinly dispersed in the human species at best, and in the case of recently evolved recessive traits, it would practically eliminate them. It would be like reversing the evolutionary clock of Homo sapiens at least 70,000 years back to the time when modern humans first entered Eurasia from Africa, before branching out into all different parts of the world. This was when our relative genetic variation was very small compared to today. I think that my concern is especially relevant due to the fact that modernity has removed many selective pressures which got us where we are, and the large human population of the earth combined with the modern ease of mobility would inhibit recent (as in a few tens of thousands of years old) evolutionary specializations from re-emerging and becoming easily fixed (widespread through selective pressures) through reproduction within small, insular human populations.

I consider myself a universal ethnic nationalist in that I have no problem with any ethnic group establishing a nation-state unto itself. I also think that if people desire to create a multi-ethnic nation-state, that this is fine just so long as all the parties joining do so voluntarily. In fact, I envision that a mixture of mono-ethnic, and multi-ethnic nation-states is probably a fairly bright future mankind can hope for in the next half-millennium. Both types of nation-states are good for different reasons, have different advantages and disadvantages, and ultimately will play different, but important roles on a global scale. So there it is. I am not a true fascist, nor am I an imperialist. Those of you who might wish to accuse me of such positions lack the basis to do so.

I would also like to note that ethnic, rather than just white nationalism would be the most beneficial for European-Americans, namely because of our diverse ancestry. For instance, someone of Anglo-Germanic ancestry such as myself has a distinct biological and cultural heritage from someone of Italian or Slavic ancestry. If we wish to preserve what our ancestors brought over from Europe, I don’t think pouring everyone into a giant stew pot and seeing what comes out is the way to do so.


Towards an Ethnic European Group Evolutionary Strategy

If anyone reading this article has heard of Dr.Kevin MacDonald and knows the summary of his notable works The Culture of Critique, and Separation and its Discontents, Toward an Evolutionary Theory of Anti-Semitism, one understands the importance of a group evolutionary strategy in the survival and well-being of a people. MacDonald argues that Christianity acted as a group evolutionary strategy against Judaism (also a group evolutionary strategy), and a read through the New Testament would seem to confirm this.

To me, it is obvious that the Christianity in its modern form (since the Nominalist revolution in philosophy) has encouraged ethnic Europeans to be less ethnocentric, and is thus no longer a suitable group evolutionary strategy for ethnic Europeans. A replacement is needed, and many have responded to this need with the idea that it is necessary to revive pre-Christian polytheistic religions. I agree that it would be romantic to revive Asatru, Nova Roma, Hellenismos, Neo-Druidism, Romuva etc. as ethnic religions.  However, the reality of the situation is that many if not most Asatruars, and many other neopagans are hostile against European ethnocentric behavior. So it is also obvious to me that European polytheism does not effectively encourage ethnocentrism among ethnic Europeans, and is therefore not the solution we need. From this I have gathered that religion cannot be our sole, or even primary, group evolutionary strategy; we instead need something deeper which crosses all the religious barriers between different factions of the Alt-Right and Neoreaction.

What we need most of all is to pass down narratives. Narratives are powerful. One could argue that the entire Jewish group evolutionary strategy is centered around narrative, the Old Testament. As ethnic Europeans, we have a wealth of narratives to pass down to our children, students, pupils etc: Leonidas at Thermopylae, Arminius and the Battle of the Teutoberg forest, the story of Mucius Scaevola, and the Aeneid to name a few. All of which contain stories of men who bravely stood in the face of massive opposition just as we do today because they understood their duty their people, their ancestors, their children, and their nation.

Additionally , there is an important meta-narrative, which appears to draw from many of the ones I have previously listed–the works Tolkien. Tolkien presented ethnic Europeans under the guise of hobbits, men and elves, all of whom would have their homelands attacked and people destroyed by orcs and servants of Melkor had it not been for their cooperative efforts both on the battlefield, and in destroying the One Ring. In Tolkien’s narratives one finds both the admonitions against cowardice, and the moral instruction which are needed for the formation of a group evolutionary strategy.

Rather, follow the example of Galadriel:

In the following video, she has no sympathy for her enemies; notice her words: “If you try to stop me, I will destroy you”. Also notice the cryptic language of Sauron: “You cannot fight the shadow. Even now you fade. One light alone in the darkness”. It sounds a lot like what the globalist cosmopolitans say to intimidate us: “You cannot keep your country white, we will wipe you out of existence, you are just a bunch of losers etc”. Yet as Galadriel says, and something we should all remind ourselves “I am not alone”.

More of the same from Sauron in the next video too: “The time of the Elves is over. The Age of the Orc has come”. Compare to: “The time of the European is over, the age of rapugees and ISIL has come”. Yet Galadriel is courageous, and eventually, she expels Sauron from Dol Goldur.

These narratives are what we need to be teaching our kids. From them, we can develop a full blown counter-narrative which will compete directly against the Europhobic, Cultural Marxist narrative of leftist academics, public education, and the mainstream media.
