A few months ago, I was convinced that I was losing my interest in blogging. I had been unusually inactive for a long period of time. I’m not sure what changed in the interim. I started posting again on almost a daily basis and the old habit quickly returned.
The results have been impressive. This blog is suddenly generating a lot more comments. The groundswell in activity seems to indicate a vacuum that is now being filled.
I have spent most of my time lately discussing the “moderate” tendency which is gaining traction amongst racialists. A number of “moderate” race realist blogs have sprouted up: Lawrence Auster’s View From the Right, Ian Jobling’s White America, Guy White, Mangan’s, Half Sigma, Accidental Dissent, Robert Lindsay. There are also paleocon websites like Taki’s Magazine and Chronicles which give lip service to our issues. VDARE and Amren have been around for a long time. All of these sites are critical of White Nationalism or would qualify it in some essential way.
In Europe, the “moderates” have made impressive gains. Geert Wilder’s PPV is the most popular political party in the Netherlands. Vlaams Belang is popular in Belgium. The BNP has gained more support in recent elections. Their recent success has inspired imitators on this side of the Atlantic. Friedrich Braun’s conversion to the “moderate” position is the most recent example of this trend.
The “radicals” are defined by their insistence on 1.) the ethnostate solution and 2.) the elimination of Jewish influence. I’m more inclined towards the “radical camp” these days. I don’t see much to be gained by self censorship.
In any case, we have spent a lot of energy on this issue. It is time to move on. What other topics would you like to see discussed at Occidental Dissent? I’m open to suggestions.
