Perspective

What It Means To Be Alt-Right

The Charlottesville Statement

August 11, 2017

1. Race

Race is real. Race matters. Race is the foundation of identity.

“White” is shorthand for a worldwide constellation of peoples, each of which is derived from the Indo-European race, often called Aryan. “European” refers to a core stock—Celtic, Germanic, Hellenic, Latin, Nordic, and Slavic—from which related cultures and a shared civilization sprang.

2. Jews

Jews are an ethno-religious people distinct from Europeans. At various times, they have existed within European societies, without being of them. The preservation of their identity as Jews was and is contingent on resistance to assimilation, sometimes expressed as hostility towards their hosts. “Judeo-Christian values” might be a quaint political slogan, but it is a distortion of the historical and metaphysical reality of both Jews and Europeans.

3. The Ethno-State

Nations must secure their existence and uniqueness and promote their own development and flourishing. The state is an existential entity, and, at its best, a physical manifestation of a people’s being, order, and will to survive. Racially or ethnically defined states are legitimate and necessary.

4. Metapolitics

Spirit is the wellspring of culture, and politics is downstream of that. The Alt-Right wages a situational and ideological war on those deconstructing European history and identity. The decrepit values of Woodstock and Wall Street mean nothing to us.

5. White America

The founding population of the United States was primarily Anglo-Saxon and Protestant. By the Great War, a coherent American nation emerged that was European and Christian. Other races inhabited the continent and were often set in conflict or subservience to Whites. Whites alone defined America as a European society and political order.

6. Europe

Europe is our common home, and our ancestors’ bone and blood lie in its soil.

European unity emerged at critical points in history, but so did fragmentation, rivalry, and betrayal. As brother nations, Europeans have competed with one another, and even hated and killed one another. We can no longer afford the luxury of intra-racial squabbling. “Brothers wars” gain us nothing, and directly lead to our collective downfall. Europeans must come together as a family.

The so-called “refugee crisis” is an invasion, a war without bullets, taking place on the fields of race, religion, sex, and morality. At stake is Europe’s very identity—whether the continent will be the locus of our people’s shared story, or become just another Islamic outpost.

7. Family

The family—a man and woman in a loving relationship that produces offspring—is an essential, indispensable foundation for a healthy and functioning society.

8. Human Nature

Man is not a blank slate on which to be written, nor was he born a guileless, noble savage. Human nature—the reality of race, sex, heritability, and innate endowments—is the most powerful force shaping individuals, families, societies, and nations.

9. Women and Sex

Women, as mothers and caregivers, are key to the future of our race and civilization. We oppose feminism, deviancy, the futile denial of biological reality, and everything destructive to healthy relations between men and women. We must overcome today’s debased and lonely “porn culture” and return to a sexuality that is fruitful and erotic in the truest sense of the word.

10. Foreign Affairs

The foreign policies of European states (including immigration, diplomacy, and war) should be based on the safeguarding of its peoples—and not be beholden to special or foreign interests, nor to corporate profit motives, nor to the chimeras of globalism, humanitarianism, or the End of History. Insofar as “chauvinism” means attempting to transform non-Europeans into Europeans, we are not “Western chauvinists.”

11. Speech

American citizens should enjoy freedom of speech as guaranteed by the Constitution; we endorse this value for all European peoples. We oppose those who seek to suppress the speech of people with whom they disagree, whether through government censorship, corporate policy, digital platform denial, or intimidation.

12. Firearms

All U.S. citizens, and all Europeans, should have the right to bear arms, as a means of protecting themselves and their families and enjoying the manly sport of hunting.

13. Globalization

International trade and the good-faith exchange of ideas can be beneficial to all. Economic and political globalization, however, has been destructive to authentic cultures. Industrialized countries are being transformed into great “nothings” and “nowheres”: indistinguishable, concrete dumping grounds and shopping centers, divorced from culture, people, and history. Globalization threatens not just Europeans but every unique identity on Earth.

14. The Left

Leftism is an ideology of death and must be confronted and defeated. “Losing gracefully” will eventuate in the destruction of our people and civilization.

15. Economics

Economic freedom is not an end in itself. All economic policies should serve the people of the nation; the interests of businessmen and global merchants should never take precedence over the well-being of workers, families, and the natural world.

16. Urban Life

The automobile, the highway system, and resultant “car culture” have contributed to the death of cities and towns. While not everyone will live in urban environments, cities are vital institutions of culture, community, learning, and the arts. They should never have been abandoned by American Whites of older generations and should be reestablished as jewels of our civilization.

17. The Natural World

We are a special part of the natural order, being in it and above it. We have the potential to become nature’s steward or its destroyer. Putting aside contentious matters like global warming and resource depletion, European countries should invest in national parks, wilderness preserves, and wildlife refuges, as well as productive and sustainable farms and ranches. The natural world—and our experience of it—is an end in itself.

18. The ‘68ers

The generation born between the years 1945 and 1964 abrogated its duty to safeguard and pass down a civilization to its children. The so-called “‘68ers” engage in childish narcissism of the most extreme kind; they bear responsibility for today’s lamentable state of affairs; and they are seemingly unable even to recognize their culpability.

A new generation of leadership is desperately needed.

19. Education

Modern education—from preschool to the doctoral level—has become corrupted past the point of recognition. This industry (both public and private) serves leftist ideologues, loan financiers, and a new class of administrators far more than it serves students and parents.

Children should not be indoctrinated in liberal dogma but given a foundation in language, mathematics, the arts, history, and science. Higher education—far from being a “right” or a “pathway to the middle class”—is only appropriate for a cognitive elite dedicated to truth; it is improper, even detrimental, for most. Practical education—trade schools and apprenticeships—should be revived as the norm for most citizens.

20. Personal Duties

A man distinguishes himself by his deeds. And every man, in his own way, must strive to be something more than a man: to be honored by his heirs; to be part of something greater than his self.

If everyone in this chat got their wish and every non white and Jew were magically gone I’m sure you’d all celebrate.

If your ancestors wanted to live in an all white country, they should have thought of that before leaving Europe, which at the time was mostly white, and invading a continent full of American Indians. They should have thought of that before kidnapping millions of black people off the west coast of Africa and forcing them to move to a place they had absolutely no desire to be and were desperate to escape from. They should have thought of that before invading Mexico and forcibly incorporating 6 new states full of Latino, Hispanic and Indian people into the country. They… Read more »

The leftists have lowered the bar to give the black man an advantage in hiring and school acceptance. Since blacks are less capable and less intelligent, they have to have help. If you’re white, you’re supposed to hide your accomplishments and give up your rights to self expression. You’re supposed to pretend that blacks are just as accomplished.

Judeo-Christianity is real. Jewish tradition (the core of the Christian Bible) shares Christianity’s monotheism, rule of law, and accountability to an after-life. Jewish rituals and traditions, like those in Christianity, ensure a continuity across generations and repeat a pledge of submission to one God. These are admirable and essential elements to the European heritage you revere.

Jewish identity and American Jewish liberalism are hardly cause to segregate intellectually or politically. Ethnic Celts, Catalans and Sicilians can be seen resisting “assimilation”, but we don’t seem too concerned about that.

Leave out the part about the “manly sport of hunting”, it’s unnecessary and tangential.

オスカー
Guest

We were hunter-gatherers, men hunted, while women gathered and
bore children. Promoting hunting for men is maintaining the connection
to our long history, and the way men evolved physically to endure the
physical labour of hunting bigger game.

Plus, hunting brings food to the table, and leather to make clothes.
Well I’ve never cured any leather to make garments out of them,
but the possibility is there at least.

Endymion
Guest
Endymion

Sure, but is bringing this up crucial enough to make the list?

I have no problem with hunting for food, what I don’t like is the misguided sense of masculinity of some conservatives. What I’m thinking of as I write this is a picture of some retard boomer standing over a giraffe in Africa. Let’s leave hunting for sport to medieval royalty. I find it somewhat sociopathic.

If we have to hunt for sport, let’s hunt Deros or degenerate illuminists.

According to these points, hunting is allowed, but not to the extent that it dangers the natural balance, as you put it, giraffes are potentially heading for extinction, thus it would not be in agreement with point 17, The Natural World. Spencer has taken some points from the great Madison Grant, who argued for preserving both wildlife and different human races, and erected some National parks through out the US. But I do as you do, I don’t agree with trophy hunting, and neither would Mr. Spencer, well that was the impression that I got when mr. Spencer and the… Read more »

[…] Nationalism is defined as a “loyalty and devotion to a nation.” So White Nationalism is a movement for white people to express their patriotism and love for their country, right? Wrong. White Nationalism is essentially a new platform to “reclaim” America as an all-white nation. Their ideology goes back to the Nazi chant “Blood and Soil,”, which was that the only “real” citizens of a certain nation (in that example, Germany) were white people living in rural areas. The Alt-Right think of themselves as educated advocates for their belief that white people define the US as a true political nation.… Read more »

As for Judeo-Christian culture. We have inherited a common culture from the Jews. The Ten Commandments, rules on cleanliness and from Jesus Christ (who was Jewish) the Golden Rule of “Do unto others as you would have them do to you”, love thy neighbour etc. These things are foundational in our common culture. It would be hypocritical to reject Jews because they are Jews. It is quite a different thing to reject individual Jews because they are anti-white racists.

Political correct people in essence are wicked liars (social fascism instead of natural darwin order) so this degenerated Zeitgeist should come to an end. There seems to be the possibility of verification for the meta-political manifesto although “race”, “identity, “european”, “whites”, “Jews”, “Judeo-Christian values”, “Anglo-Saxon”, “Christian”, “Protestant” are not easy to define. “Judeo-Christian values”, “Anglo-Saxon”, “Christian”, “Protestant” have no real philosophical-stringent content. It is chaos in its mass of misleading information so for MINT-States or MINT-Nations it seems to be appropriate to pass these concepts to ancient history.

For example, the wave of Ashkenazi German jews who came to America in the 1840s-50s are the ones who started the large Wall Street investment banks. They’ve been screwing us ever since.

I would like to add to my first comment:
Under Economics. Is there any way to state that Usury laws must be limited or banned? There were anti usury laws in Europe at various times in order to stem the Jewish stranglehold. One of our biggest economic problems stems from too much interest. We have one Trillion dollars just in credit cards. our national debt would be under control if not for the interest.
Banking and interest are predominant methods used by Jews to control. There are banks that give loans without interest and instead charge a fee to that loan.

philipknight
Guest
philipknight

Yes, but in practice the fee although nominally small on a retail sized loan or overdraft is equivalent to an interest rate of thousands of a percent. These fees are a sleight of hand by the retail banks to introduce a different but worse form of usury against their customers while marketing them as “fairer” and “easier to understand”.
