Darkstream: Alt-Right and Identity

Tonight at 7 PM Eastern I'll be talking about the Alt-Right and what the future likely holds for it in light of the debacles, successes, and revelations of the last six months.

UPDATE: the replay link is here.

I keep typing this, but your speaking improves with each Periscope video, Vox. More engaging, focused, and smooth.

You even cut down on the swaying and saying "you know" and "umm".

I also imagine your Periscope videos are drawing a wider audience, judging by some of the trolls and idiots today.

These darkcasts are great as they really get you into a student mindset on wanting to sit back and really concentrate on the topic at hand.

Here's the thing that was running through my mind while you were talking about China moving into Africa. Do you think China will try to step into the power vacuum as we try to disentangle ourselves from the Imperialist role...more importantly, do you think it will run into the same political tar pits we run into by making too many treaties and deals?

still swaying back and forth.

absolute stillness would not appear natural either but right now you look antsy.

would be better to take a step to one side or the other every minute or so, and then remain still from the waist down. occasional gestures are fine.

speech tempo is still quick.

while i appreciate Evil Lord of Evil portraying the dead black Earth on his globe, it's a bit distracting on top of the bookshelf. *wink*

whether you add more stuff on top of the book shelves or take the globe off, i'm not sure how you'd light that up there anyways.

perhaps better to find some way to screen that off or reposition the camera so that it doesn't capture the ceiling.

So I gathered from some of the questions. But there are few things I despise as much as stating a fact and having some moron who thinks he is intelligent posturing and demanding "evidence".

Go fly to fucking Africa and count the Chinese if you don't believe me. It's like demanding "evidence" that there are Muslims in Europe... China has more money invested in Africa than in the USA.

China is after resources. Africa is rich in them and has little to defend itself. It takes the China money because it doesn't trust the Western money - besides, so much of the Left has demonized any attempt to engage in Africa by the West as racist that it has left a vacuum China is more than happy to fill.

Another reason that African despots prefer the Chicoms is that they don't get lectures on human rights.

Blogger Robert Divinity January 23, 2017 9:06 PM  

Excellent point, to paraphrase badly, that the ideas and not the individuals matter. Avoidance of personality has been one of the Alt-Right's greatest strengths. The unsettled, to paraphrase you again, orthodoxy helps avoid someone acting as a voice, media-designated or otherwise. It will be interesting to see what happens after the orthodoxy settles, which assumes it likely will. The Alt-Right is innately intellectual so thought and philosophy at least for now trumps individuals (spellcheck tried to undermine that point and capitalized "trumps" before an edit was applied).

Anonymous Aphelion January 23, 2017 9:13 PM  

@23 Bingo! Under Obama the US browbeat African nation's who don't support our liberal agenda - while hypocritically saying nothing to Saudi Arabia and the GCC for far more terrible crimes committed in the name of Islam.

China has been investing in Africa for a long time. I was in business in Uganda over 15 years ago and most of the hotel was occupied by a week long conference of the Chinese chamber of commerce. They come for resources and in return build schools and hospitals. On many projects they bring in Chinese workers, that is how they colonize, building company towns near mines, factories, etc. populated by the Chinese.

My suggestion to improve your performance art is to bring back the flaming sword. In 75% of my studied cases a flaming sword increased information retention by 1000%*. With a flaming sword, only Helen Keller or Spergatron 5000 can fail to understand your video presentation.

*Michael Mann helped me to interpret my data set, so you know it is a completely scientific study. I'm told that he is the best scientist around at interpreting data and I only settled for the best.

The main issue that I see about the alt-right is that it overemphasizes the importance of civilisation and tradition. A true banner of resistance against the cathedral would be an ideology of absolute destruction towards the structure of society to ensure its eternal demise. Modernity is a product of ever-progressive societal overdevelopment. To truly stop this monstrosity advancing to a seemingly-invincible point, an anti-system of pure chaos would need to be born. Any attempt of cultural rejuvenation or religious conversion only stops a few listening individuals from degeneration. A whole society has never been recovered by copying its past as any historian can see.
As in fourth-generation warfare, politics will continue to become more and more decentralised outside the mainstream. This is already happening with the alt-right. The lack of a definable, or even named head is its greatest strength. If a real blow against society is needed, sheer anarchy based only upon evolutionary pressures to reshape the genetic fabric of western man can really kill the internal disease of pathological altruism. Possibly even breaking the whole cycle of eventual r-selected deterioration into ghetto apes and fruitboys.

Yes, but a more complex matrix of information is communicated in a written presentation. The information can be meditated upon.

You don't get it. Evolution, as in the way of breeding, can replace any trait and add new ones. Just like breeds of horse, dog, and cat, the white man can be bred as a being without an out-group altruism disease. I can tell you missed the end of number 33.

says someone who doesn't know a damn thing about animal husbandry.

there are hard limits on what breeding programs can accomplish ( ex: Great Dane vs Chinese Crested vs wolf ), beyond which the basic genetics cannot be driven. animal breeders have been aware of this issue for centuries.

further, Vox himself doesn't believe in Darwinian evolution. so, citing it as if it were a known and incontrovertible philosophical principle is going to be a non-starter in any discussion with him.

it never will. reality has nothing to do with the situation.

they are driven by Cultural Marxism. and too Cultural Marxism the White Christian Man is the original sin of the world.

this is why you can find Marxists back into the 30s talking about how WASP American culture is oppressing them and how the WASPs need to be destroyed.

and why it's been a constant theme of all the offshoot orgs ( like Feminist Marxism and Racial Marxism ) since.

White Men are the enemy, they have designated us so.

That is exactly what I wanted to find out about. Africa still is a mineralogical powerhouse. I'm curious of how long the Chinese can subtly push in there before they start getting tarred with the same brush that the white folks did.

"yet you assert Satanic principles. odd."
If by "satanic" you mean striving for racial success, then too people to count would be satanists. In any case I am not a satanist nor have I ever been. If I had to classify myself, then I would be a deist with an agnostic tendency. My ideas are my own.

"the White man is the only group to ever suffer from out-group altruism?"
Out of all recorded races of men, modern europoids have the worst case of it. Altruism surplus is a trait capable of infecting any group. Never said it was a unique problem.

I never once said anything about fascism. My post was about the necessity of anarchy and the survival of the capable and strong from its course. Its super-obvious you don't want it because you know and won't ever admit that the victory of survival does not belong to you. In the real man's world, which is untamed wilderness, you would be killed by your betters.

I apologize for not being more clear on Periscope. My request for more, “evidence,” was in response to the statement:

“[China’s] main interest in expanding is into Africa, and that’s where things could get a little dicey.”

I do not dispute that China is expanding; I dispute that “things could get a little dicey.”


While China does have one military base in Djibouti, so do France, Italy, Japan, and the United States. Forget Africa, China lacks power projection off its own coastline. Wouldn’t it acquiesce at the first sign of conflict? Further, what gives you reason to believe Chinese settlement in Africa would be more violent than 600 years (okay, 5 years of violence in the late 1960s) of peaceful Chinese settlement in Malaysia?

PS If the request for, “evidence,” annoys you so, is it acceptable to ask for, “elaboration?”
