The Age of Apocalypses

Josef Rebell – Sea Storm at the Arco di Miseno

“But the peasants – how do the peasants die?” – Leo Tolstoy

The sky is falling. We are bombarded daily with dire warnings: the planet is dying, nuclear hellfire is imminent, the global economy is collapsing, and AI will at best make us unemployed, and at worst destroy the human essence of society. Politics has fragmented into a collection of competing doomsday cults, each offering its own dystopian apocalypse that must be acknowledged as the primary threat to humanity itself. Rather than galvanizing the masses to collective action to avert these imagined or real catastrophes, the public is increasingly succumbing to apathy and inaction, paralysed by the sheer multitude and enormity of the problems facing them and their perceived total lack of ability to ameliorate these crises. This downward shift in the collective consciousness has profound implications for those seeking to manifest change in the world. In such a period of mass neurosis, the demographic replacement of whites simply becomes one disaster amongst the myriad.

Often white advocates are frustrated that despite the replete and growing examples of the failure of multiculturalism from terrorist attacks to unmanageable and endless migrant flows, large sections of our people fail to acknowledge the problem. This is at best a partial truth. While it could be argued that in the 1980s or even the 1990s that many of our people were genuinely unaware of the problems of multiculturalism, or at the very least the true extent of them, in 2023 those living in true ignorance are a vanishingly small group. The question for those who have not accepted our credo is now no longer whether our claims that demographic replacement is occurring are true, but whether this matters more than the other pressing problems society faces. This conclusion will be anathema to many on the radical Right, who will state that it is self-evident that the extinction of our ethnic group is the most salient problem of our time, and all other problems are downstream of this. If we could simply regain control of the levers of power, all other problems could be overcome, the argument goes.

The inconvenient truth is that for many people, this line of logic is not self-evident. The connection between saving the white race and solving the crushing problems they face on a day-to-day basis is a tangential one. It is the case that huge numbers may well even agree with us that mass migration and demographic decline are grave social ills, but when faced with nosediving standards of living and economic prosperity, a rapidly degrading environment, and the prospect of global conflict this seems a secondary priority. Even the avenues by which action to avert demographic disaster might be taken seem doubtful and fraught with intractable problems. How can voting for nationalist parties be a solution when the electoral system itself has been called into question? What difference does the ethnic composition of your neighbourhood make if tyrannical technocrats can institute global lockdowns and trample the freedom of all, regardless of race? And what solution can white advocacy offer when the most important active war in the world is one which is intra-European?

Our political work must be informed by an understanding that globalisation is not only an economic process, but a psychological one. Where once the scale of reference for the average individual was local or national, in an interconnected world even the most parochial minds are not immune to thinking on a planetary scale. This shift has manifested itself recently in Elon Musk raising the problem of falling birthrates – not amongst whites, but as a global process heralding disaster not only in the West, but in countries as disparate as India, China, and Japan. It was not that long ago that aging populations and vanishing countries were spoken of as exclusively a problem inherent to dying Western societies, but now infertility has gone global as a trapping of modern materialism and its seemingly inevitable reproductive dysfunction. This has given rise to a deracinated pro-natal argument: a fall in global population will be a disaster for us all, and it will disproportionately affect higher-IQ countries.

This white noise has muddied the waters of our efforts to make the case that European countries should stay European. It is in part a function of an over reliance on purely utilitarian arguments which state we should save our ethnic group because we are statistically on the average more productive and more intelligent. If our arguments for our continued existence are solely based on materialist claims, they are open to relativist subversion. We must animate our people not only by logical and rational claims, but by also making metaphysical and emotional appeals. Our group is not monolithic; there is no single approach that will inspire every individual to urgent action. Our platform must be multifaceted and focus on activating a broad base.

We must also acknowledge we are being buffeted by tremendous countervailing psychologically demoralising and malicious attempts to prey on our racial sense of morality and fairness. While Elon may have positioned himself as the most well known pro-natal advocate, huge swathes of our people have bought into the idea that global population decline is in fact a desirable outcome, to save the planet from total destruction. In the infertility arms race we are simply ahead of the pack; we are making a Christ like sacrifice by lessening our own numbers to save humanity writ large. And we are doing so with total moral authority because whiteness itself has been vilified to the point that many of our people are deeply afraid of it.

It is not hyperbole to state that for a significant proportion of our group Whiteness itself is in fact another disaster, associated only with injustice, genocide, slavery, and oppression. While we can complain that this is a psychological operation foisted on us by malevolent outside groups with our worst interests at heart, this does not lessen the reality of the pervasiveness of this neurosis. Pointing out a fear is irrational rarely dispels that fear in the minds of those who have a deeply ingrained phobia. We cannot heal the souls of such people by impotently complaining that our enemies wage psychological war upon us, but only by winning this tug of war taking place in the shared imagination of our folk.

The 2019 horror movie Midsommar presented a folkish, bucolic, homogenous and traditional Swedish society as the setting for occult murder and inbred evil traditions, building on the demonisation of similar themes in the Wicker Man of 1973. It may seem laughable to those involved in dissident right politics that the traditional modes of living our ancestors enjoyed are scary to many of our people today, while multicultural cities where crime and terrorism are increasingly frequent are not, but nevertheless this narrative has warped the psyche of our people. This gets to the heart of the problem with our strategy. We can devote huge amounts of time and energy to pointing out racial crime statistics, individual acts of interracial violence, and examples of social breakdown and degeneracy, but ultimately, we have been unable to terrorise our people with messianic visions of disaster as well as our opponents have done. Put simply, we cannot move the needle in our direction by adding more woes to an already embattled and beleaguered collective consciousness. Our enemies are too proficient in wielding and distributing despair.

If we cannot win the battle to present the most convincing apocalypse, we must instead adopt another tack. We must strike back with the most potent weapons in our arsenal: hope and inspiration. In an epoch of disasters defined by the almost unanimous belief that nothing can be fixed, and everything will get worse, we must be the voice of spiritual renewal and racial resurrection. We must set our sights higher – we should not only make the nebulous claim that we will save our people, but also, we will make for them a world worth living in. If our enemies say that whiteness is only a force of destruction and evil, we must conclusively prove them to be liars by our words and deeds. If our flock is threatened by the howling of distant wolves, it is incumbent upon us to take up the role of shepherds, herding them away from dangers both imagined and real.     

In all that we do, we must emulate the example of Gabriele D’Annunzio in his daring 1918 ariel raid behind enemy lines over the city of Vienna, risking his life to drop tens of thousands of propaganda leaflets to a stunned and ostensibly hostile audience. We must embrace the theatre of the grand gesture which ignites the imagination of all who witness it. We must be a relentless whirlwind of energy and hope, delivering the unwavering message that we will not only secure our existence, but we will fix the economy, we will restore the environment, we will bend technology to our ends, and not become subservient to it. We will resolve the fratricidal conflicts of our age, and at the eleventh hour, we will save the world from disaster.

It may seem a fantastical and naïve approach to claim we will fix the world, when we are so far in the wilderness, lacking the power or resources to implement even one policy in our favour. Yet if our people are wracked by huge doubts, if their waking nightmares are so terrifying, half-measures are useless. We must take a defibrillator to the heart of our people; we must administer a psycho- spiritual EpiPen to a race in anaphylactic shock. Whiteness has been the organising principle and engine of history for millennia, it is not we who are the ones who are attempting the impossible by returning to this state of affairs, but our opponents who are doomed to failure by trying to remake the world without us. The genius strategy of European evolution has always depended on the explosive imagination of a few heroic individuals, and it is time for us to accept this mantle of responsibility once again. If our people cannot envisage a future for themselves, it is time for us to articulate one for them to believe in. In a world of rack and ruin, where all seems lost, we must be the lighthouse, the shining beacon, guiding our people home and out of their deep despair in The Age of Apocalypses.

Wain’s World & The Disintegration of Discourse

The progression of English artist Louis Wain’s (1860-1939) work as his mental health reportedly declined

The wheel has turned, the merry-go-round of modernity has performed another rotation. One could be forgiven for thinking at first sight that things are much as they were before; the same cast of characters leers back at us. Trump and Farage continue to dominate the headlines, and the entourage of grifters and sycophants that surround them seem wearingly familiar. Yet even a cursory glance at contemporary political discourse reveals that we have experienced a sea change. Even the most humdrum media commentators are not as they once were. The embattled centre has finally collapsed. The dam which was holding dissident ideas of all stripes has broken, and formerly simmering undercurrents of thought boil to the fore. Extreme ideas are battling for the minds of the public, and with a sudden thawing of restrictions on speech, the great war of value systems is being conducted in the open for the first time.

To see the fast-developing new fault lines, we need only to contrast the utterances of Jordan Peterson with the bombast of Kanye West. As Jordan Peterson weepingly prostrates himself in Jerusalem, declaring “the fate of the world depends on Israel”, Kanye West has launched into a shocking attack on the prevailing power structure. Confused and partial though his strikes have been, they have forced those previously pulling the strings from behind the curtains into an uncomfortable and unwanted spotlight. Kanye West is a stray bombshell that has hit an ammo dump, igniting furious debate from all corners. The elite are battling an inferno they cannot put out, the damage has been done. Elon Musk is pouring fuel onto those flames, reassuring us in what we already knew to be true. Vested interests have been subverting reality, desperately trying to channel discourse along acceptable lines while maintaining their grip on power.

The elite’s ability to control the narrative, to present a false picture of the world to the masses, has collapsed. Major world events occur now without an agreed upon party line, there is no longer a coherent mainstream consensus. What was the origin of the Coronavirus? Who destroyed the Nord Stream pipeline, and why? Why is Sam Bankman-Fried still a free citizen after committing unprecedented fraud? How deep does Hunter Biden’s web of corruption run? The mainstream politicians and legacy media offer no cogent answers to any of these questions, and into this vacuum of credibility thousands of voices have started to offer their own answers, speculating on who the guilty party may be. A din of competing explanations is reverberating on all channels in an open dialogue which was long artificially repressed. Debanking and deplatforming have failed to silence Kanye or to commercially cripple Elon.

The sudden disintegration of the centre and the collapse of narrative control by the elite has in part been facilitated by worsening material conditions in the real world. The scale of the lies which must be told to explain plummeting living standards, huge population movements, all-encompassing health tyranny, and global conflict are colossal. The reasons they proffer for our impoverishment, disenfranchisement, and loss of liberty are insufficient. The mendacious webs they have tried to weave are too transparent; even the most apathetic and detached can now see the falsehoods. All those shivering in unheated homes or living next to overflowing camps of ‘refugees’ now understand politics affects them personally. Those previously contented to let the all-knowing elites run the world have realised that they have driven us off a cliff.

Chaotic and unpredictable forces have now been unleashed. It is unsurprising that into this void of uncertainty, Christianity has reasserted itself in political life. Both Jordan Peterson and Kanye West couch their morality in Christian terms; Nick Fuentes declares himself the prophet of Christian nationalism. Though belief in milquetoast organised Christianity in the West has collapsed amongst the masses, in a crisis it has returned as an animating nucleus of vanguard elements. This path is not our path, however. While the current chaos offers opportunities for dissidents, it also presents severe dangers. We must not allow one set of buffoonish elites to be replaced by another. We must not abandon our principles and follow the pied pipers of pandemonium down the slippery slope into madness.

It is increasingly apparent we are being offered white nationalism without whites, as the coalition of dissenters against the global liberal order expands to include new ethnic groups and social classes. Eric Kaufmann’s theory of ‘whiteshift’ is playing out on a grand stage. Christianity is being lauded as the thread which can tie the disparate disruptor’s caucus together, the tried-and-true glue that can bind a shaky alliance of disaffected groups. At this critical moment, we must not be distracted by the circus an unravelling world serves up to us daily. We cannot lose sight of our goals. Our race will not be liberated from without, but instead its salvation must come from within. Contemporary events are offering us much ammunition and many fresh angles for the ideational attack, but chaos alone does not guarantee our victory; we must also fight to achieve it.

Recent UK census data brings into sharp focus the grave reality of our situation. The demographic clock is ticking and nothing that has been said will change that. We must be Machiavellian in our struggle for power, if truths are uttered from unlikely mouths, we should amplify and utilise them. But we must not forget that our credo is not their credo, and we are working for nothing less than the total metaphysical and demographic revival of our race. The discursive and political environment may have changed, but our goal remains unerringly the same. Our previous attacks have been repulsed, but we throw ourselves at the breach once again with vigour.

To those who have been in the movement for years, the struggle is familiar, yet at the same time strange and novel. Just as the images of English artist Louis Wain (1860-1939) became more warped and abstract as he descended into madness, so too has our world become alien and freakish. Our towns and cities no longer reflect us but are instead degenerated and alarming parodies of what they once were. Discourse too, has become bizarre and unhinged, increasingly gravitating towards the most unnuanced and clownish positions. The disintegration of the centre will only accelerate this unstoppable descent into the incoherent and unknown. The winds of chaos will only become stronger, sweeping up those without any firm intellectual or ideological grounding.

We must stand tall as granite pillars of stability and reason, unceasingly pushing the public conversation towards our message as we try and reach as many of our people as we can. We must not be paralysed by the outlandish theatre playing out hour by hour, but instead be proactive in building our own alternative, coherent, and stabilising worldview which saves our civilization and restores order to a world in chaos. We cannot at this moment change the fact we are living in Louis Wain’s world: an ever-distorting reality, increasingly more abstract and inchoate. We must play events as they are dealt to us, but we must also keep our eye firmly fixed on our final prize: salvation, stability, and the triumph of our ideas.
