Today, the United States officially takes the position that all races are equal. Our country is also committed―legally and morally―to the view that race is not a fit criterion for decision-making of any kind, except for promoting “diversity” or for the purpose of redressing past wrongs done by Whites to non-Whites.
Many Americans cite the “all men are created equal” phrase from the Declaration of Independence to support the claim that this view of race was not only inevitable but was anticipated by the Founders. Interestingly, prominent conservatives and Tea Party favorites like Michele Bachman and Glenn Beck have taken this notion a step further and asserted that today’s racial egalitarianism was the nation’s goal from its very first days.
They are badly mistaken.
Since early colonial times, and until just a few decades ago, virtually all Whites believed race was a fundamental aspect of individual and group identity. They believed people of different races had different temperaments and abilities, and built markedly different societies. They believed that only people of European stock could maintain a society in which they would wish to live, and they strongly opposed miscegenation. For more than 300 years, therefore, American policy reflected a consensus on race that was the very opposite of what prevails today.
Those who would impute egalitarianism to the Founders should recall that in 1776, the year of the Declaration, race slavery was already more than 150 years old in North America and was practiced throughout the New World, from Canada to Chile. In 1770, 40 percent of White households in Manhattan owned Black slaves, and there were more slaves in the colony of New York than in Georgia. It was true that many of the Founders considered slavery a terrible injustice and hoped to abolish it, but they meant to expel the freed slaves from the United States, not to live with them in equality.

James Burnham died July 28th, 1987 — nearly three decades ago, and just before the arrival of the current age. Born in a Catholic 1905, he quickly delved into Marxism in his college days. But Kapital couldn’t keep him, and he quit the party in 1940, and the next year wrote his post-Marxist, and criminally underappreciated book, The Managerial Revolution. In brief, the book spelled out how the rulers of our day are not the cliched nobles and aristocrats, nor the triumphed pioneers and businessmen, but the technocrats, the pencil-pushers and the “experts” behind the scenes in our ever more complex society.
That book, popular in its day, put Burnham on the map, and he wrote quite a few books thereafter: The Machiavellians, Congress and the American Tradition, andSuicide of the West to name just three. He became a titan within the burgeoning conservative movement — writing regularly for National Review and The Freemanand reaching prominence enough to be a target of George Orwell’s ire from all the way on the other side of the Atlantic. However, for all his new found glory in William F. Buckley’s posse, Burnham never “purged” his mind of his early influences like Niccolo Machiavelli, Max Weber, Vilfredo Pareto, and Gaetano Mosca — thus ensuring that his thinking always remained above the echo chamber of Republican politics.
But not with a bang, but a whimper, did he fall from the limelight. Largely debilitated by a stroke in 1978, he was largely left in the dust by his conservative colleagues, and one by one his books fell out of print. Though a recipient of the Medal of Freedom — from Ronald Reagan no less, today his mentions are few and far between, certainly nothing in comparison to his contemporaries Russell Kirk and Whittaker Chambers.

The next big ideological-spiritual or ideo-spiritual struggle of the coming decade will be the Homo-Tug-of-War.
The next big ideological-spiritual or ideo-spiritual struggle of the coming decade will be the Homo-Tug-of-War.
The Zio-Glob has elevated homomania as the new religion of the West. Jews tried it with Holocaustianity, and it is indeed huge, especially in the EU(where every city has a holocaust memorial and every year yields its crop of save-the-Jews movies), but it had problems. Holocaust is too Jewish, and most nations have no Jews. In contrast, all nations have their share of homos.
Also, Holocaust is a glum affair. You can't have fun with it. You can't celebrate it with fanfare. It only guilt-baits and depresses. It's a form of self-flagellation for whites. It doesn't appeal to people in a fun way.
The thing about Christianity is it had its glummy but also happy side. Jesus got killed real bad, but He was resurrected and triumphed, and people could sing songs about it and even dance(esp if one is a Negro).
But the Holocaust is a downer. To be sure, there is the narrative of the postwar triumph of the Jews in the US and Israel. But celebrating the rise of Jewish power is something Jews are nervous about. It will only reveal to the world that JEWS GOT THE POWER and JEWS DO CONTROL THE WORLD. Jews want to hide their power and make everyone believe that privilege is just a 'white gentile' thing. Jewish power depends to a large degree on people(esp white people in US, Canada, and EU) feeling sorry for Jews.
So, Jews celebrate Jewish power by using the PROXY of homo power(or Homoxy) because homomania is essentially the financial and legal creation of Jewish Power.
When Jews see so many American gentiles go gaga about homos, they wink-and-smile at one another and mutter to themselves, "WE got the power over those dumb goyim."

I’ve been involved with the Alt Right, on and off, for the last seven years, before the term was anything more than a phrase used by a few obscure bloggers. Being in the Quicken Loans Arena as Trump accepted the nomination Thursday night, I couldn’t help but feel proud of the part I did, however small, of bringing about his coronation. The concerns we have been expressing about demographic displacement are now completely mainstream and have clearly influenced conservative powerhouses such as Drudge and Breitbart, without which Trump would have been unlikely to win the Republican nomination.
At this moment of triumph for our movement, there is probably no better time to take stock of where we’ve come from and where we’re going.
Back in 2009, when I first became involved with the movement, we were unknown even among the educated class most interested in politics. When Richard Spencer, formerly of The American Conservative, left Takimag that year to start the websiteAlternativeRight.com, only a handful of people on the mainstream right evennoticed. His move was completely unremarked upon by mainstream journalists and the Left, with the only exceptions being a few organizations specifically focused onexposing “hate.”
In the last year however, it is difficult to find a major newspaper or news website that has not done a feature on Richard Spencer and the “Alt Right,” with some of them writing multiple times about the phenomenon. To name a few you may have heard of: CBS, NBC, ABC, the New York Times, and BuzzFeed. The movement has been a particular obsession of the Washington Post, which has mentioned it on its webpageover 30 times since the beginning of 2014. Googling “Alt Right” and “RNC” and limiting the results to the week of the convention gives nearly 100 results, including articles in The Nation, Salon, and, of course, the Washington Post.

ISTANBUL (AP) — In a new tactic against suspected coup plotters, Turkey on Saturday announced it had seized more than 2,250 social, educational or health care institutions and facilities that it claims pose a threat to national security.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also sharply criticized Western countries that expressed concern about possible human rights violations in the sweeping purges the government has carried out after the July 15 failed military coup that have left at least 10,000 people in jail and another 60,000 tossed out of their jobs.
Erdogan told France 24 in an interview broadcast Saturday that Turkey has no choice but to impose stringent security measures in the wake of the attempted coup that killed about 290 people and was put down by loyalist forces and protesters.
“We are duty-bound to take these measures. Our Western friends fail to see it that way. I cannot understand why,” Erdogan said. “I’m under the impression that they will only see that once all the political leaders of Turkey are killed, and then they’ll start to dance for joy.”
Turkey has imposed a three-month state of emergency and detained or dismissed tens of thousands of people in the military, the judiciary, the education system and other institutions. Turkish leaders allege that supporters of a U.S.-based cleric, Fethullah Gulen, infiltrated state agencies and groomed loyalists in a vast network of private schools as part of an elaborate, long-term plan to take over the country.Read More: https://stream.org/crackdown-turkey-seizes-2250-institutions-coup/

Now that we have overcome sexual repression, we have developed a neurotic relationship with food. Not just a neurotic relationship, but a neurotically religious and spiritual relationship with it.
We believe that we are what we eat and that eating grass and twigs does not merely put us in closer touch with nature, but is better for our bodies.
Most religions have rules about what to consume and what not to consume, when and where. But, we no longer believe in such superstitions. We are all proud to be atheists. As for the spiritual experiences that religion provides and that atheism does not provide—see William James’ The Variety of Religious Experience—we practice food rituals anyway. Only, they are missing any reference to religion. Or better, they are devoid of any reference to Western religions.
Do our sexually uninhibited ways have something to do with our obsessions with dieting and with eating healthy? Does one the appetite for food have anything to do with the appetite for carnal relations?
We do know, for example, that people who suffer depression can lose both of their appetites. And we also know, as Julian Baggini explains in the Guardian that in British culture food that tastes good is generally considered to be bad for you… that is, sinful.

In 2004, the eminent political scientist offered key insights into the nationalist-cosmopolitan divide at the heart of our society.
Samuel Huntington, the professor of government at Harvard University (and member of The American Interest editorial board from its founding until his death in 2008) was a titan of 20th-century social science. Several of his books, including Political Order in Changing Societies, The Third Wave, and The Clash ofCivilizations, are classic works that will shape political thought for generations.Huntington’s final book, however, has been denied a place in that pantheon. Who Are We?—a wide-ranging treatise that argued, among other things, that American elites were dangerously out of touch with the American public when it came to issues of patriotism, foreign policy, and national identity—was panned by most mainstream reviewers in 2004 as an ideological and careless screed that flirted with xenophobia. At 77,
The world has reached "Peak Democracy," with the result that we can expect to see it start collapsing any day soon. Those places where it is most likely to collapse include South America and parts of Asia, in both of which it has not really been a natural fit. Also, in certain countries, like Russia and Japan, it will continue simply because it doesn’t rock the boat too much or throw up important divisions, but elsewhere, where it does, it will face something of a reckoning.
Turkey is a good example of the problems with democracy, and why this should have been ideal territory for a partial collapse of democracy. Like Venezuela with Chavas, Brazil with Lula, or Thaksin Shinawatra in Thailand, democracy in Turkey – forced on it by its proximity and economic dependence on Europe – has basically empowered the underclass, but rather than this expressing itself in more gibsmedats it has been channelled along the lines of the creeping Islamization of Turkish society, which reveals a little of Islam's utility as a control mechanism.
But despite its usefulness in keeping the masses fulminating about trivialities, like how long a burka should be, it is also something that the old elites, who are more Europeanized, feel uncomfortable with.
