It is time for White Nationalism to move to Stage Three: building institutions and networks in the real world.
I submit that Stage One was completed long ago. There is a broad consensus in the movement that the ultimate goal is a White ethnostate in North America. There is a broad consensus that Jews should be excluded from the White homeland.
We are divided over the particulars: the location of the White ethnostate, secession or taking everything back, the role of religion in the ethnostate, the boundaries of whiteness, the morals of the ethnostate, women’s rights, the specific type of government and economic system, the exact historical minuate of our racial decline.
These are all matters that can be fleshed out in the future. We can divide into factions and engage in politics after a White homeland is secured. In the interim, we should be able to find unity in our desire for a radically different living arrangement.
Stage Two was creating an alternative media in which this ideal could be disseminated and propagated to the masses. It has never been easier to run around the mainstream media and directly connect with our audience.
According to Leonard Zeskind, there are about 30,000 hardcore White Nationalists in America. There are hundreds of thousands of sympathizers who have been exposed to the movement. There are millions of explicit racialists who have never heard of us. There are tens of millions of Whites who wouldn’t stand in our way. There are tens of millions of implicit Whites out there who are potential converts.
Stage Two has matured to the point where we are reaching enough people to start doing things in the real world. Building the Pro-White media is a slow process that will continue long after the White ethnostate is secured.
Stage Three begins with forming state based networks of racialists. I’m referring to innocent stuff like touring historical sites, starting book clubs, holding meetings and conferences, eating dinner at a restaurant once a month, hosting a barbeque, cultural festival, or a concert, hanging out with friends, going out for drinks with a few buddies.
What does this accomplish? It gets people out from behind their computer screens. It shows people that doing stuff in real life is a lot of fun. It shows people that White Nationalists are normal. It dispels stereotypes. It raises spirits and creates real bonds between neighbors. It replaces fragile internet relationships. The enemy has worked hard to keep us anonymous, isolated, and bottled up on the internet for a reason.
Stage Four is openly engaging in political agitation for a White ethnostate. This involves attending protests, confronting the enemy, organizing protests, creating and joining organizations, leafleting, writing letters to newspapers, creating propaganda, running insurgent candidates in targeted districts, organizing boycotts, building an electoral base, etc.
Most White Nationalists are too frightened right now to forge ahead to Stage Four. They don’t have the confidence. The Libertarians have long been at Stage Four. They are moving ahead to Stage Five which is capturing political power, governing, and breaking out into the mainstream.
I’m convinced Stage Three is doable. I don’t see any necessary opposition between “theory” and “action”; we already have the goal, we’ve had it for thirty years, the problem is that no one is following up on it with action in the real world.
We’re stuck on the internet arguing and hairsplitting about the minuate of a collective fantasy! Either that or endless navel gazing. Which is why nothing ever gets done.
If White Nationalism is ever to amount to something more than a wish or a plea, it must move through Stage One, Stage Two, Stage Three, Stage Four, Stage Five and beyond.
If White Nationalists can’t find the strength to move beyond anonymous drive-by posting on the internet, then we are wasting our time and should focus instead on maximizing our own personal happiness.
