A is A

In order for there to be individual freedom and liberty, there must first exist a society in which individuals are self reliant, self controlled, and responsible.  In a society in which people must be controlled, liberty must be diminished so that the irresponsible majority do not destroy the society, the nation, the infrastructure, and ultimately themselves.  Don't believe me?  Go look up what happened in Albania in the 1990's.

 If men are to have the right to life, liberty, and property, they must exist in a greater society that values and protects these precious things.  If this necessary precondition does not exist, no amount of wishful thinking and happy thoughts will cause it to become so.

So, individual liberties may, indeed must, to some degree be constrained in order to create a society in which these ideals may flourish.  In time of war, one does not have the right to object to and obstruct those defending one's own homeland.  We can disagree on tactics, strategies, methods and means, but the existence of the war itself is without question.  We can fight, because we must.

Free men need no chains, but chained men can not enjoy freedom until the chains are removed.  Soldiers for a cause must submit to discipline for the cause to have any hope of success, even if their cause is liberty.

A is A, and not-A is not and never will be A.

American society is white, northwestern European society.  We are the descendants of the British and Germans, with a smattering of other compatible cultures.  We are Christians, and though we may disagree on dogma and ritual, we recognize Christ as our only King.  We speak English, although it is the peculiar American variety, with its regional dialects and accents.  We believe in the free market, and find communism and socialism to be abhorrent on both moral and practical grounds.  We believe that men and women are different and complimentary, just as God created us.  We believe that only homogeneous societies survive, as all of history has shown us.  We believe that diversity is not our strength, but a fatal disease which our enemies are deliberately attempting to inflict upon us.  We believe that all men are created equal, and then they are born, each separate and unique.  We believe in one law for all, high and middle and low, government and corporate and private.  We believe that women and children must be protected, for they are irreplaceable and the promise of the future.

We believe that we should never start a fight, but always finish one.  This fight started long ago, decades even before I was born.  It will continue long after I am dust.  Only by not fighting can we lose.

After all, it is said that the Devil's greatest trick lies in making people believe that he doesn't even exist.

From an away game

A comment I posted at Intellectual Takeout, in their article on the philosophical history of the alt-right.

Bottom line - the article's author obviously confuses any opponent of the left with nazis and fascists.  Because those are totes obvs the only choices.  Or something.


The Alt-Right stands in direct contrast to the Control-Left. However, where conservatism, inc. has failed due to multiple causes, the alt-right is succeeding because it is a reality based movement. The root philosophy of the alt-right is that there is such a thing as objective reality, and men must live and deal with reality as it is, not how one might wish it to be.
The reality is that only homogeneous societies are stable. A nation is defined as a people with a shared language, culture, religion, and history. Multiculturalism is a direct affront to this simple, common sense understanding. A is A, and not-A is not, and never will be A. One can not mix poison with food and call the lethal mixture a rational compromise.
We are in a war for survival. Our deadly enemies want to destroy us, root and branch. They attack physically and morally - striking at both genes and memes. The culture war is a real war, and has been so for the left for decades. The right has simply ignored the approaching threat, with conservative leaders choosing to roll over and show their bellies to keep their well paid jobs.
Conservatism has failed to conserve a single thing. Not marriage, not the rest room, not Christianity, not the English language, not even the idea of a nation. Conservatism, inc, is indistinguishable from a paid arm of the control-left, like the Washington Generals to the Harlem Globetrotters.
This is a war for the survival of our people, our nation, our culture, our lives. Any weapon which our enemies finds good to use against us is good to use against them. We will not stop. We must not stop, for the alternative the left offers us is death and utter destruction.
