What the Alt Right is

In the interest of developing a core Alt Right philosophy upon which others can build.
  1. The Alt Right is of the political right in both the American and the European sense of the term. Socialists are not Alt Right. Progressives are not Alt Right. Liberals are not Alt Right. Communists, Marxists, Marxians, cultural Marxists, and neocons are not Alt Right.
  2. The Alt Right is an ALTERNATIVE to the mainstream conservative movement in the USA that is nominally encapsulated by Russel Kirk's 10 Conservative Principles, but in reality has devolved towards progressivism. It is also an alternative to libertarianism.
  3. The Alt Right is not a defensive attitude and rejects the concept of noble and principled defeat. It is a forward-thinking philosophy of offense, in every sense of that term. The Alt Right believes in victory through persistence and remaining in harmony with science, reality, cultural tradition, and the lessons of history.
  4. The Alt Right believes Western civilization is the pinnacle of human achievement and supports its three foundational pillars: Christianity, the European nations, and the Graeco-Roman legacy.
  5. The Alt Right is openly and avowedly nationalist. It supports all nationalisms and the right of all nations to exist, homogeneous and unadulterated by foreign invasion and immigration.
  6. The Alt Right is anti-globalist. It opposes all groups who work for globalist ideals or globalist objectives.
  7. The Alt Right is anti-equalitarian. It rejects the idea of equality for the same reason it rejects the ideas of unicorns and leprechauns, noting that human equality does not exist in any observable scientific, legal, material, intellectual, sexual, or spiritual form.
  8. The Alt Right is scientodific. It presumptively accepts the current conclusions of the scientific method (scientody), while understanding a) these conclusions are liable to future revision, b) that scientistry is susceptible to corruption, and c) that the so-called scientific consensus is not based on scientody, but democracy, and is therefore intrinsically unscientific.
  9. The Alt Right believes identity > culture > politics.
  10. The Alt Right is opposed to the rule or domination of any native ethnic group by another, particularly in the sovereign homelands of the dominated peoples. The Alt Right is opposed to any non-native ethnic group obtaining excessive influence in any society through nepotism, tribalism, or any other means.
  11. The Alt Right understands that diversity + proximity = war.
  12. The Alt Right doesn't care what you think of it.
  13. The Alt Right rejects international free trade and the free movement of peoples that free trade requires. The benefits of intranational free trade is not evidence for the benefits of international free trade.
  14. The Alt Right believes we must secure the existence of white people and a future for white children.
  15. The Alt Right does not believe in the general supremacy of any race, nation, people, or sub-species. Every race, nation, people, and human sub-species has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and possesses the sovereign right to dwell unmolested in the native culture it prefers.
  16. The Alt Right is a philosophy that values peace among the various nations of the world and opposes wars to impose the values of one nation upon another as well as efforts to exterminate individual nations through war, genocide, immigration, or genetic assimilation.
TL;DR: The Alt Right is a Western ideology that believes in science, history, reality, and the right of a genetic nation to exist and govern itself in its own interests.

The patron saint of conservatives, Russell Kirk, wrote: "The great line of demarcation in modern politics, Eric Voegelin used to point out, is not a division between liberals on one side and totalitarians on the other. No, on one side of that line are all those men and women who fancy that the temporal order is the only order, and that material needs are their only needs, and that they may do as they like with the human patrimony. On the other side of that line are all those people who recognize an enduring moral order in the universe, a constant human nature, and high duties toward the order spiritual and the order temporal."

This is no longer true, assuming it ever was. The great line of demarcation in modern politics is now a division between men and women who believe that they are ultimately defined by their momentary opinions and those who believe they are ultimately defined by their genetic heritage. The Alt Right understands that the former will always lose to the latter in the end, because the former is subject to change.

Blogger SteelPalm August 24, 2016 7:46 AM  

Overall, it's good. General, but with enough specifics that many of those that call themselves "Alt Right" violate and would do well to observe.

The only tricky one for me is 10. White people have an "excessive influence" in many Asian and African countries that they're in, even today.

Is the Alt Right opposed to their influence in said countries, and should they be cast out of, say, Hong Kong?

It also brings up the question of how fine one wants to make the gradations. For instance, do Scots living in England count as a foreign ethnic group? What about the French in England? Or a Serbian living in Germany? Some of these groups violently hate one another, after all.

Blogger Krul August 24, 2016 7:46 AM  

"The Alt Right is opposed to any ethnic group obtaining excessive influence in any society through nepotism, tribalism, or any other means."

ANY other means? How about the means of being the majority, or the group that got there first, or merit? This looks like a justification for equality of outcome.

Alternative: "...opposed to any non-native ethnic group obtaining..." if that's the meaning that you intend.

Anonymous Bobby Farr August 24, 2016 7:47 AM  

I would take issue with 10. As drafted, it would seem to be anti-nativism i.e., it indicates the alt right would oppose using the law and cultural norms to ensure the dominance of the native ethnic group over foreigners.

Saying the Alt-Right is an alternative to Libertarianism is like saying DOCSIS is an alternative to JavaScript.

Even in a perfectly alt-right world, intranational politics should strive toward libertarianism within the bounds of an international alt-right framework. Despite what the faggoty "bleeding heart libertarians" think, libertarianism isn't a suicide pact and you don't have to tolerate foreign invasion. Seems like you're losing focus with that point.

Or maybe Ive just outgrown libertarianism and fail the True Libertarian test and haven't fully realized it yet.

Blogger 1337kestrel August 24, 2016 7:59 AM  

Different ways to look at the definition of Alt-right, other than the policy planks, which do need to be laid out.

The AltRight is ideological, not partisan.

The AltRight consists of every right wing group that was ...ostracized... By the GOPe.

The AltRight has some overlap with Paleocons, but is much more critical of classical liberalism, and is more explicit in its regressivism.

We also need to develop an Auatrian theory of limited trade vs free trade. Nationalism doesn't necessarily lead to tariffs unless the tariffs can be shown to be good for the nation. Vox made a good start but is mostly attacking free trade, whereas we need to show how irrationality and incomplete information make consumer imports a bad deal.

Thaw Alt Right includes all of the white nationalists, but is not a supremacist ideology, in the sense that black nationalists or Asian nationalists could adopt it for their own nation-states.

If you need a ghost writer hit me up.

Blogger N Matheson August 24, 2016 8:01 AM  

Why is there opposition to free trade? How do you feel about North East Asian cultures? I lived in Asia for many years and was very impressed with many aspects of Japanese culture. I'm not sure they'd have got there on their won and there is a tendency to totalitarianism. I suppose I'm asking as I am not sure that Christianity is one of the pillars of Western success.

The just-added appropriately numbered item 14 "The Alt Right believes we must secure the existence of white people and a future for white children" is important.

I like this, and was about to note that it lacks a theory of political governance, but then decided that any nation of similiar people with shared cultural values will thrive under nearly any political system. It is the shared values that come first. Governance is just "discovering" the means by which those values are most easily expressed.

The problem across the West today is that Western values have been discarded in favor of chasing the unicorn of a system that can simultaneously serve adversarial values, producing #11 as a consequence.

Start with Cuckservative and SJWAL. Christianity is only one of the three pillars. Obviously SOME of the seeds of success predate European Christianity. But that doesn't mean Christianity is not a necessary element.

#20 Can we get this manifesto printed in a little red book? I know Maoist Red Guards did this, but putting the manifesto in a Red Pill strikes me as less than useful.

The next alternative would be to print this in small font on a sap glove. I really, really want to use a sap glove when engaging in "discourse" about the Alt-Right, and having the manifesto on one would provide "reasonable man" justification.

I don't think a lot of the alt-righteous will get on board with Christianity and I know that most Christians will not get on board with the alt-right.

there is no conflict there. What is good for one race is not necessarily bad for all other races or even any one of them necessarily.

OpenID countenance August 24, 2016 8:21 AM  

Here's the definition I came up with a few months ago:

The alt-right is the space of the political right consisting of people whose rightist politics are chiefly motivated by some form of anti-egalitarianism, and at the same time are not comfortable with associating with the incumbent categories of modern rightist politics.

Blogger dc.sunsets August 24, 2016 8:22 AM  

Would it be redundant to recap in #14 (or #15) that the Alt-Right believes every race & culture is entitled to its own, homogeneous place; Africa for the various Africans, Asia for the various Asians, Mexico for Mexicans and places that are predominantly Caucasian for the various Caucasians?

Maybe too pedantic, but I'm a fan of asking critics, "Do you object to Africans being entitled to Africa?" And if in debate with a Soros-funded astroturfed clown, "Do you object to Israel for the Jewish people?"

There could be the appearance of a contradiction between No. 4 "The Alt Right believes Western civilization is the pinnacle of human achievement" and No. 15 "The Alt Right does not believe in the general supremacy of any race, nation, people, or sub-species."

The problem is that Western civilisation should not be seen as some goal or model that Western nations have to impose on others; it must never again become a mission civilatrice. Western civilisation is the model WESTERN nations should strive for but other races and cultures may find that other organizational system fit their particular needs better -- and that is OK.

Anonymous Be Not Afraid August 24, 2016 8:29 AM  

@33
I bailed on the United Methodist Church during Lent and started attending a small Anglican congregation. Anglicans are serious and vastly more orthodox than the modern UMC. When one of the first sermons I heard the rector give was entitled, "What is the worst sin?" I knew I'd found the right place for me. Many of the Protestant churches are nearly converged, but the Anglicans in the US are clearly not.

On the main topic, it's good to get this out there before Hillary defines the strawman Alt Right tomorrow. Part of the strength of the Alt Right is its nebulosity, but that same aspect can allow the movement to be boxed in and defined by others.

No. Alt Right is a Western ideology. We therefore favor Western Civilization. We don't expect the Japanese or the Navajo to do so and we respect their right to reject it in favor of their own cultural preferences.

I would like to raise an important revision to #7 for your consideration:

"The Alt Right is anti-equalitarian. It rejects all concepts of equality except equality before the law for the same reason it rejects the ideas of unicorns and leprechauns, noting that human equality does not exist in any observable scientific, legal, material, intellectual, sexual, or spiritual form."

Given the last of the three pillars mentioned in #4, I think this might be worth emphasising as the one kind of equality that is accepted. Thoughts?

There's this idea that all nations and homelands as they are now or were fifty years ago should be frozen that I don't agree with. Land changes hands. Peoples are exiled and win new homelands. If the homelands of the West are taken over by invaders it's because the West allowed it, and we should own that. In a hundred years Africa might be a Chinese homeland, with the Caribbean the only homeland for the African race. These things happen. It's not up to us to decide if others try this; it's only up to us to decide if we will take the land we need and defend the land we have won.

A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of nationalism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Soros, Merkel and Hollande, humanitarian aid workers and Facebook police-spies.

Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as racist by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of racism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?

Two things result from this fact:

I. Nationalism is already acknowledged by all European powers to be itself a power.

II. It is high time that Nationalists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Nationalism with a manifesto of the party itself.

The definition of "native" becomes very important here. For example I would say the first listed below are "native" and the second "invasive". My reading of this highlights a potential conflict between a European and American alt-Right.

Native Americans vs. white Americans
Palestinians vs. Israelis
French (français de souche) vs. Muslim Maghrebians.
Blacks in South Africa vs. Whites in South Africa.

Americans had better pray that there is no justice in this world, because justice would require an invasion of over one billion Asians and Africans and Arabs killing most of them and sweeping the rest onto reservations in the desert.

The Alt Right is not interested in excusing America's historical sins. History is what it is. Deal with it.

This was one of the hardest things for me to let go of in my conversion from "conservative" to "alt-Right." While it is not difficult to demonstrate that Marxist command economy political governance is inferior to laissez faire, almost anti-governance, if you will, within like-minded communities (and scripture will back this up if my interpretation of the reign of the Judges and the whole process Israel underwent to select a king in spite of God's specific warning to them not to), the fact is that clearly it isn't the most important variable that affects performance. There is a reason, after all, that the Democrats like to point to places like Japan, Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, etc. as socialist or at least quasi-socialist societies that work reasonably well.

I'm amused by conservative memes that keep pointing to Venezuela or Cuba or even communist Russia as examples of ones that don't, and also conservative memes that try to debunk the "Denmark is so great" claim of the liberal by creating a circular argument that basically says that it must suck because it's socialist.

Both liberals and conservatives are unwilling to accept the obvious data in front of their faces; the system of government is not the most important variable that affects outcome.

The Alt Right is openly and avowedly nationalist. It supports all nationalisms and the right of all nations to exist, homogeneous and unadulterated by foreign invasion and immigration.

Incompatible visions of society are an inevitable consequence of multiculturalism. Antagonistic cultures guarantee warfare, political or real, as cultural factions seek to compel their visions of law and behavior, and use society to redistribute wealth and power from others to their faction members. Multiculturalism is thus an observable failure and a hopelessly naive goal. Peace and prosperity are promoted in homogeneous polities.

[I know, I know, too verbose. I just like to pound home the point that we have problems with BLM, Aztlan, arguments about open borders, even the egregious violations of equality before the law of Affirmative Action, because factions in the USA use political power to enrich their members while bullying and robbing their competitors. No such BS would exist in a place where people all share a much closer notion of social standards and where the spectrum of personal abilities has nothing to do with the excuse of physical appearance.]

Some of these points are obviously intended to clearly state that those on the alt right are not "conservatives." There is a huge amount of confusion among the general public about what is right wing due to the fact that for the last generation the talking heads for the right have primarily been pro-war leftist foreigners who are ignorant of American history and culture and who largely advocated policies that were hostile to America's pre-WWII political traditions and the interests of the native population.

For that reason, to the extent this list specifically describes the American alt right, it might make sense to say "the alt right is reactionary" (without using the word reactionary of course). The intention would be to state clearly that the alt right views the recent innovations of empire and open borders as failed post-Hoover experiments and seeks a return to the isolationism and anti-immigration/diversity that were the rule for most of America's history.

The alt right isn't new or fringe - neocons/cucks are. The more clearly it can be stated that the alt right is the true representative of traditional American principles and the views of most native whites, the more clearly it will be clear that the Bill Kristol's and Ben Shapiro's of the world are not on the right and can no longer co-opt the right wing.

As for No. 1, there is a tendency in France to deny the relevance of the left/right political spectrum and to instead emphasize the binary struggle between Nationalism and Globalism.

Another point is saying "Socialists are not alt-Right". What do we mean here by Socialist? If we mean someone who believes the government should own all the means of production, then OK. But if we really mean no national health service then this could be a problem. I would consider Marine Le Pen as the Founding Mother of the alt-Right and her program, which includes many things that could be labelled "Socialist", and so we should make sure as much as possible that what we list as the fundamental principles of the alt-Right do not conflict with the Front National's program.

I guess the question is: can the irreligious support Christianity (I think it's obvious they can in a sense), and what is the standard for supporting it? Full-on belief in God and Christ? Or support and promotion even in absence of that belief?

With respect to Christianity and Western success, think of European genes as the firmware/hardware and Christianity as the operating system that best unlocked the Westerner's potential.

But as you can see with Windows 10, adopting a crappier operating system (let's call it SJWacintosh) means you're able to do less with your machine, and possibly even see your machine work against you (e.g. Windows 10 data mining and spyware).

If Europeans returned to Christianity, they would have the moral foundation on which the nations can be defended, the impetus to improve themselves individually and as a society, and a love for Truth that transcends the need for consensus. And of course, a desire to realize beauty. The Truth shall set you free, as Christ himself says. And Christ is the Truth, the Life, and the Way to the Father - God.

Only part I might quibble with is the "spiritual" in number 7. I think there is a sort of equality inherent in Christianity and in the notion of human rights derived from it. Namely, if a 60 IQ African pygmy tribeswoman kills a 130 IQ Englishman, it's equally murder as if the 130 IQ Englishman kills the tribeswoman (assuming for the moment that neither had previously committed a murder or attacked the other, so that it was unprovoked), because both equally have the human right to life, which is binary. The murderer equally merits having their own life taken as retribution in either case. I submit that this basic premise (together with the concepts of property rights and some other things) underlies the notion that no ethnicity has the right to dominate or rule another one in its own land as well.

Appeals to history have no logical cutoff and a 10 year old should be able to see them as without merit.

The tribes of people displaced in the 17th-19th century in North America were simply the latest in a long line of Zeke-displaced-Yale-displaced-Xyphon-displaced-William, etc., etc., all the way back to when Allan and his tribe came across the Bering Land Bridge tens of thousands of years ago.

The only people with an original claim to North America were displaced and/or subsumed a hundred times over during that long period.

If "X" enters a land occupied by "Y" and basically displaces "Y" almost entirely, the land is now "X's."

Leftists explicitly recognize this when they call for the elimination of "whites" (because Racism) or invaders openly advocate for Aztlan. The Alt-Right exists because a few people woke up and realized that if whites consent (out of pathological altruism or suicidal collective-insanity) to displacement, there will literally be NO PLACE ON EARTH for their grandchildren to live.

The stupid (and the Asians) will have inherited the Earth. Not my notion of okay.

This is what will enable us to win. Its a breath of fresh air to see a movement that is not afraid of being confrontational, unapologetic and willing to take the battle to the enemy.

For many years I've been actively involved in a number of forest product industry trade groups. There has been a core group of us who have worked tirelessly to fend off the environmental luddites found at the federal,state and local levels. Despite our hard, thankless work - we rarely win. Instead we give up our rights consistently while flattering ourselves that its not so bad because the watermelon marxists didn't fully get what they want. Roughly eight years ago it dawned on me that the most effective way for us to fight these watermelon marxists is to bring the fight to them. Using all legal means necessary we should be putting them on the defensive. When I tried to convey this to the leaders of some of these trade groups - there was a resistance and certain squeamishness to this idea. It was then that I realized we would never win the war utilizing our current strategy..

But finally, its nice to see the tables turning and a movement starting that has no qualms whatsoever about delivering a good sound ass beating to those parties and movements that have had it easy for way too long !

Last week while thinking of the differences between the two major parties and the Alt Right in regards to the black/white issue I wrote the following ideas.

The republican/conservative think the black man is stupid and easily deceived thus falling for all the democratic schemes to give them free stuff.

The democrat/liberal realizes the black man is lazy, and not able to control themselves. Therefore they can easily win the black man's favor by giving them free stuff and telling them they are not to blame for any of their problems it's the white man's fault.

The alternative observes nature and seeks truth. Truth informs us that black and white men at large are different with differing values and desires. They each deserve to live unencumbered by the chains of one or the other. White men owe the black man nothing, and black men should not be forced to live under white man rules. They each do best when separate and left to their own to seek their own desires.

Sorry if someone else commented on this, but i can't read all posts right now.

A few notes concerning particular points:

-1. The common thread these ideologies share today is 'universalim', which is what the alt-Right opposes.
It is technically feasible to have some of those views, provided they are paired with Nationalism. There are National-Socialists in the alt-Right after all.

-4. The alt-Right is not inherently Christian.
There are many Christians within the movement, who rightly see it as the way to protect their values, but so are there many non-Christians in there.
Where the alt-Right differs itself from the current "Left" and increasingly the current mainstream "Right", is that it has no hostility towards Christianity, provided it's not a tainted, converted brand of it, such as what Pope Faggo preaches.

-14(i see what you did there). This is just incidental to the current state of affairs, as is the tie between the alt-Right and White identitarianism.
The movement extends this same principle to all peoples and i think other points listed pretty much imply this one already.
Moreover, the alt-Right does not presume to preserve peoples with no interest in preserving themselves; Which is precisely the issue here, where currently many Whites desire to preserve themselves, but are being prevented, or at least de-incentivized from doing so.

Stupid whites in North America largely accept their lives. Stupid Chinese in China largely accept their lives. I accept my life and do not compare it to the lives of those who are smarter, more talented or more fearless than I am.

But introduce very definite physical differences, instantly noticeable, and suddenly differing levels of wealth yield white-hot envy and are immediately attributed to those physical differences.

This will exist as long as humans sporting differing physical attributes exist, or until in a distant future science is able to distribute capabilities like chefs with their ingredients produce a meal.

What about your writings on immigration, which you've supported with reference to American law and principles from the founding to 1965 and which have advocated (or at least described as inevitable and desirable) a return to pre-1965 demographics?

No more than the Alt-Right is inherently Western. Or, white. But the reality is that Christianity is a necessary component of Western civilization. If the Alt Right does not support both, it does not exist; I for one would not be a part of it, nor would the greater part of its base.

VD, I am quite close to many (not all) of the principles that you have listed, and I would be glad to hear your opinion on the following:

1. To what extent would you say the Alt Right is close to National Socialism? From what I can gather from your text and my conversations with people who staunchly believe in NS, I'd say the similarities are enormous. Of course, the NS brand is absolutely destroyed and no-one with a brain larger than a peanut would claim it for himself.

2. I hear quite often from alt-rightists the idea that we humans are essentially irrational, and that no ideology that does not keep this in mind can possibly prosper. The alt-right would be a kind of right that correctly assesses this fact of human nature.

To what extend do you think that many of the principles that you have listed are not defensible from a rational point of view, but should be defended anyway because of their capacity to drag the masses?

If we speak frankly, genetic nations are an absurd concept. Wouldn't you say that Spanish and French natives living across the Pyrenees are genetically closer than said French natives and French natives living in Normandy?

Ignoring the biological / ethnic component of nations is unwise (we're seeing now in Europe), but isn't reducing nations to biology equally unwise? And isn't the association of genes and land ultimately conducive to the concept of Lebensraum? Lebensraum is a harmless moment... until the moment when two "genetic nations" don't quite agree on where their "legitimate" soil ends.

Thanks!

Not necessarily. While the rule of law may cover those things, the utility of those things is not limited to a discussion about the rule of law.

Alt-Right came together from what I call the Pat Buchanan and the Camille Paglia directions: moral nationalism and amoral sex-realism. Or WN and Game. The points in this post are overwhelmingly political, with sex-realism and such being implicit but not given their own stand-alone points. Do you think sex/family/game dynamics are adequately covered in this comprehensive set of points?

For #16, should the imposition of values be called empire? I assume it's opposed to empires.

Furthermore, what about political unions like UK and the US? Should it be said that peaceful partition should be pursued?

Finally, on genetic assimilation, does there need be anything said about exceptions? For instance, we know multi-ethnic countries in general start to entrench into different enclaves.

But isn't Switzerland currently an exception in that they're homogenizing? There was a paper I saw mentioning this somewhere.

Alt-Right seems to be above what you're discussing. A Japanese Alt-Right would hardly embrace "guns for all" because that's simply not part of Japanese culture.

Alt-Right is about homogeneous self-determination (yes, I know it's an oxymoron. Sue me.) A homogeneous polity will arrive at the 2nd Amendment (and the entire Bill of Rights) because that's its members' culture, or IT WON'T.

IMO, arguing about the specifics waits until Cthulhu is stopped dead it its tracks (Cthulhu only turns LEFT!) Once culturally and (redundant) genetically homogeneous places are left to suss out the specifics, by that time you should damn well know if your self-chosen group agrees with you on something as foundational as the right to bear arms.

I don't consider the right to bear arms to be a philosophical foundation of the Alt-Right. It's probably a wise policy in most current (multicultural) societies, but it's not a prerequisite. Indeed, if the Alt-Right philosophy is carried out properly, there should ultimately be enough societal trust and respect for the rule of law that gun ownership is no longer required.

Funny thing; as I was reading this manifesto, there's a Rabbi on the news here, talking with the Talking Head about the Australian left's campaign to legalise gay marriage.

He's telling the guy that reality has a longer history than the TH's gay sister and faggy friends. The TH is stunned: "How can you tell me that their love is wrong?!?!"

The Rabbi tells him we've been here before. Homosex is not new. The Greeks, the Romans, for centuries it was almost obligatory. Like living in San Francisco. But nature always asserts itself, everything eventually returns to the mean.

So, if you're a Japanese Alt-Rightist, Christianity is not relevant. If you're American or European, it is, as it is an integral part of your cultural tradition, if nothing else.

I don't think a Christian imperative belongs in the definition of the alt-right ideology, despite being a Christian. Many (most?) of the originators of the term and movement (Spencer, Johnson) were and are explicitly agnostics, pagans or atheists. Many alt-righters are ambivalent towards the effects of Christianity on the west (in particular the Jewish influence empowered by it.) Out of respect for that, "Traditionalism" might be a broader, more truthful way of getting at it, although that isn't very normie-friendly.

The Alt Right rejects free trade and the free movement of peoples that free trade requires.

That's not the point i'm addressing.

Even for people who dislike Christianity, you'd have to be astoundingly ignorant, or idiotic, to argue against it's ties to Western civilization. Pretending 'history doesn't real!' is the Left's thing.

What i'm saying is that the alt-Right, as a movement, does not automatically abide by any Christian principles as a guideline.
Individuals within it may willingly do so, of course. But there are a lot of agnostics, atheists and even Pagans in there who should not be expected to do the same, whether they are of a Western heritage, or not.

Also, there's a similar incidental tie between the alt-Right's connection with Christianity and it's connection with White identitarianism. Wherein Christians are increasingly facing a world hostile to their values, in some places to the point of physical mass genocide and the alt-Right is the only political movement which not only allows them to stand for themselves, but will also fight for them.

Some of us really are fetishists with regard to our weapons. Possession of a gun is what makes a human being the most dangerous animal on Planet Earth (i.e., the only one that can kill at a distance.) Every polity on the planet has people who wield such power. The only difference is WHO, and how they are selected.

Slavery is the natural state of humanity. It is entirely self-selected (slaves forge their own chains.) Its basis is consent (i.e., Discourse on Voluntary Servitude by Etienne de la Boetie.)

I don't G.A.S. what others do, but choosing to live overtly as an unarmed slave is not on my to-do list. (This leaves aside the unavoidable choice to live as an armed slave, who has no choice but to jump in the lake when his fellow citizens, mental slaves in majority, decide everyone needs a baptism.)

To be a little pedantic, in the parable of the Talents, God gave the exact same reward—word for word—to the guy who had five talents that he turned into ten as the guy who had two talents that he turned into four.

Or, in other words, there may not be spiritual equality, but the potential worth of each soul is the same to God, and the potential spiritual reward is equal for all.

But I freely admit that that's somewhat pedantic and shouldn't be entertained for change on my account.

Despite all of their work, the left still thinks the NRO is full of racists, and calls them fascists. So they failed twice, they failed in their supposedly original task which was conserve society and politics, and they failed in their secondary task which was to not be called racists and bigots.

On #15, I would end with "right to dwell unmolested in its native culture." The current last two words "it prefers" seem unnecessary, and really their preference is irrelevant. Each race, nation, people, or sub-species may prefer their own native culture, but part of the problem the alt-right is addressing is the mistaken idea that a race, nation, people, or sub-species claims to prefer another culture that it is in fact destroying and bending towards its culture.

With the possible exceptions of 7 and 8, these principles can be summarized as the idea that Western nations must preserve their cultures and autonomy and that this also requires the preservation of the native ethnic groups. Some shared policies flow from this - citizenship based on ethnicity, mass deportations, economic nationalism, purge of foreigners from decisionmaking roles. Otherwise, policies between nations will diverge as they make policy decisions in accordance with their different cultures through some sort of responsive, perhaps representative, but non-democratic process.

Alt right philosophy does not permit national suicide but otherwise seems to prescribe only the decisionmaking process in re to issues like gun control, not the outcome.
