Editor’s Note: “Silicon Reich,” of course, is tongue-in-cheek. Lighten up.
Shotgun writes in the comments:
“The vaunted “changes” in the South ought not to be thought, especially in hindsight, good changes, unless Hunter’s new placement on arbitrary star-charts has also realigned his views of the wholesomeness of antebellum Dixie …”
I haven’t changed my views at all on antebellum Dixie.
I still believe that Slave Society had all sorts of underappreciated advantages over Free Society. Now, I see a real path toward rescuing and reviving the Old South. In the months ahead, we are going to be writing about neo-Fitzhughism in the context of reactionary futurism.
“What point is it to gain the world if we lose our souls? I – for one – am an unreconstructed Southerner and want that old-world Christendom, or nothing.”
When this Yang movement came along, it just so happens that I was already independently exploring this question. I had been watching an old science fiction series called Caprica that was the prequel to Battlestar Galactica. The whole plot of the show is about the spiritual vacuity of the near future world of robotics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. You should check it out.
A FUTURE TO WORK TOWARD
“Southern squirming and wiggling for the tit-of-the-state was the outward sign of decay caused by the Civil War and was, at best, a desperate attempt of the war-ravaged to salvage daily meals; that form of “populism” ought not be accepted as a principle. We’re not principled “democrats” after all, even if some of our ancestors were members of the Democrat party.”
It was our ancestors who launched both populism + progressivism into orbit in the early 20th century to take out the ruinous poverty and capital scarcity that followed in the wake of the collapse of the Confederate economy. They literally inflated the money supply and built military bases and ratcheted up government investment in infrastructure and human welfare to end sharecropping.
“– Second, historical facts are, in a way, like the infamous “Gestalt Beast” – they can appear however the observer (or, in this case: the historian), wants them to appear. And how will a thoroughly-reconstructed, modernist academic, educated at radical left-wing state universities, understand the history of the south? A far better source for understanding this tumultuous period, in my opinion, is William Percy’s “Lanterns on the Levee” – a work that represents unreconstructed commentary on the emergence of the New South.
I recommend it, not to discard Hunter’s citation above, but perhaps to supplement it and give it proper perspective.”
There have been several New Souths.
The one that began with Woodrow Wilson, which reached its apogee under FDR and crashed under LBJ under the pressure of the Civil Rights Movement and Vietnam was a populist-progressive coalition. It also just so happens that Southern heritage flourished in this period.
The Jews took over the Democratic Party in the mid-20th century. They launched an attack on Southern Whites and Middle America as revenge for the Holocaust. It has continued down to the present day, but the dominant Jewish elite position is more vulnerable than ever. In particular, there are lots of wealthy Asians in the Democratic Party who would rather make peace with the Whites. Just let all this toxic shit go from the 20th century and move forward like China.
The Yang movement is an opportunity to accelerate this process. We’ve already accepted that America as we know it is over anyway. We’re never going back to the 1950s. Instead of continuing to get screwed over by conservatives, we’re going to try something different. We’re going to try to make peace with and bargain with the other racial tribes in the Democratic Party.
It is in the best interest of everyone for White America to be cut into the “mainstream” to depolarize our politics. It is going to have to happen at some point anyway. Instead of getting violent to try to bring on the “collapse” of civilization, we’re just going to vote for Yang. We’re all going to join the Democratic Party and rebuild the center of the electorate and nullify Jewish power there.
No one except SJW ideologues really wants a lot of this Jewish cultural venom to continue anyway. Asians, Hispanics and Blacks aren’t ideologically committed to social liberalism. They disagree with Boomer conservatives mainly on economics, but on social issues they are far more moderate. We disagree with them too. It’s just that … it has never occurred to anyone until quite recently to abandon conservatism as a failure and try to compromise with the other side.
The compromise could be really simple: political correctness is tossed in the garbage, White identity is normalized within the Democratic Party, the “MAGA agenda” is salvaged from Trump and in return we make deals on a whole variety of social and economic issues that have been politically impossible in Washington due to the partisan gridlock. We could start by abolishing wage slavery and student loan debt and making healthcare more affordable and rebuilding our infrastructure. Boomers can scream with their Don’t Tread on Me flags about MIGA and the country becoming Venezuela.
Most people would happily make that trade. How committed is the Democratic base to Jewish supremacy in the Democratic Party?
