What 3 books have had the largest impact on your personal philosophy?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Great question. Without a doubt:

  1. Plato, The Republic. How civilizations rise and fall, and commit suicide.
  2. Fred Nietzsche, Ecce Homo. Most people live in illusion and oppose anything healthy.
  3. Michel Houellebecq, Atomized. Modern society, based in equality, is existential death and this misery is responsible for the death of Western civilization.

[–]AfroFogey 6 points7 points  (8 children)

As a nationalist, what do you consider to be required reading for us of that mindset?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 12 points13 points  (7 children)

Great to see you here! Basic nationalist reading:

  1. Guillaume Faye, Archeofuturism: European Visions of the Post-Catastrophic Age. An insight into how we get past this era in history.
  2. Julius Evola, Men Among The Ruins. Why modern society does not meet our needs, and how to have a spiritual nationalism that saves us from ourselves.
  3. Theodor Herzl, The Jewish State. One of the first modern arguments for nationalism for its own sake, Herzl saw diversity as the cause of racism and pointed out that the only solution was to end diversity.
  4. Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley. The common sense and far-reaching argument for nationalism: without it, we have nothing in common, and it makes us hateful.
  5. Marcus Garvey, Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey. A sensible view into how each group walks its own path, and has to bypass competition within the diverse state to find its own destiny.
  6. Tom Sunic, Against Democracy and Equality: The European New Right. A theoretical approach to thinking our way outside of the world in which we live, a Left-leaning internationalist regime.
  7. Billy Roper, The Big Picture. This one is new, and is a practical argument for nationalism and how to introduce normal people to it.

On top of those, a general background in history, literature and philosophy. For those wanting to enter the latter, Will Durant's The Story of Philosophy is a good toe-dipping-into-the-water entry point.

Herzl saw diversity as the cause of racism and pointed out that the only solution was to end diversity.

When a Jew says 'end diversity'...

[–]amerika_blog[S] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Many Jews are realizing that diversity will end them, too. I suggest that we form partnerships with the Other who are sensible, because nationalism is in all of our interests. Nationalism for Jews means all Jews are safe in Israel, without Palestinians blowing up buses every few days to stay relevant.

[–]cuckdestroyer1 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I think we should support everyone's right to their ethnic homeland. Supporting Palestinians even if I don't personally give a fuck what happens to them, is currently an acceptable way to promote ethno-nationalism. Then once that position is mainstream we are able to say 'it made sense for them, now what about us?'

[–]amerika_blog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To my mind, the modern age of diversity began with the Jewish diaspora, and the best way to end that is to restore the Jewish people to their ancestral homeland.

As far as Palestinians are concerned, it makes sense to realize that they are not ethnically distinct from populations from which they descended in nearby Muslim lands, and repatriation with reparations is appropriate. There are enough open spaces in these areas to create a nation of Palestine; Israel faces the same problem that the USA and Europe do, which is a surge of third-world immigration resulting in massive social problems and eventually, in demographic replacement through democracy and outbreeding. Our goal should be to hold the line that more advanced populations should keep out others and encourage those populations to evolve in their own lands.

[–]BillyRoper 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Dr. Sunic is a brilliant guy, and very down to Earth. I had a chance to spend a week with him a few years ago when we both were lecturers giving seminars at the Soldiers Of The Cross Training Institute. Great sense of humor!

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

All alt right personnel might want to pay attention to Mr. Roper and his new book, The Big Picture, which is quite clear, entertaining and edifying. Many of you know him for the more than two decades of energy and quality thinking he has put into the cause of Nationalism for white people.

[–]BillyRoper 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's very generous, Brett, thank you for the kind mention.

[–]djflowwolf 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Brett, what philosophies (if any) would you add/subtract from Ted Kaczynski's Manifesto?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Kaczynski is wonderful, but I disagree with him on two key points:

  1. The source of our downfall: we did not fail because of industrial civilization, but because our society drifted toward individualism/Crowdism (a collectivized form of individualism) with The Enlightenment.™ Industrial society just poured fuel on the fire.
  2. He needs to go full Nietzsche: Leftism is our problem, yes, but we need to find a new direction. What does he say yes to? The answer is a bonding of nature and humankind, based in the idea that hierarchy is not wrong, and that it is not terrible if there are some winners and some losers.

Other than that, his manifesto is a top-notch analysis, especially of liberalism.

[–]kolarov133Dark blue letters next to my name 5 points6 points  (1 child)

What are your expectations and hopes for 2017?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Viktor Orban called it: 2017 is the year of rebellion against the Leftist elites and their ideology, including globalism and diversity. We have started a wave pushing back against these people who deny reality so that they can control all of us with their "progressive" ideology, and now it is time to take this wave to all of the many ways they hold back the growth of realist and right-wing ideas and policies.

[–]reactionarytree 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What are your thoughts about Donald Trump?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Donald Trump represents (1) a cultural revolution against the idea that white people cannot have self-interest and (2) a reversal of direction in the West from ideology toward practical concerns, or time-proven results in the conservative tradition.

I see DJT as a moderate, ultimately, but also a businessman, which means that he measures his successes in terms of how well his projects turn out, not just the theater of public opinion as Leftists do. People elected him because he pointed out the obvious crises of America -- big government, diversity, immigration, red tape -- and showed how people were suffering on a day-to-day basis because of these. If he acts to reduce these problems, especially BUILD THAT WALL, he will be a success bigger than Reagan. If he does not, he will quickly exit stage left.

My hope for Donald Trump is a reversal of affirmative action, civil rights and anti-discrimination law through an act of Congress, in addition to what he has promised above. These laws mean that if a non-white person wants a job, apartment, sale or home and a white person wants the same, the non-white person always gets it because the seller/employer can be sued for millions of dollars if they do not give it to the non-white. Diversity is killing America, and its forefront is this triad of laws.

In addition, DJT can do some great things for Europe. He is against American ideological intervention in Europe, which frees up Europe to have non-Leftist opinions again. He will make them pay for their own defense, which means that their socialist-style social welfare programs will no longer be affordable. He has started a cultural wave away from the appearance-based Leftist ideology and toward practical realism.

There is much to like about DJT, but I think it is a mistake to see him as a rightist or alt-righter. He simply wants to make this country functional again, but there will be ripple effects from this worldwide that the alt right can seize upon and use to further our message and objectives.

[–]ImmortalNorseGod 5 points6 points  (3 children)

On the topic of Nihilism, and I plan to buy your book on the subject, do you see Nihilism as a starting point for reevaluating ones values where one throws out everything they thought they knew, and starts over? Or, Nihilism as a life philosophy where nothing matters?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Great question. Nihilism as I see it is radical skepticism toward humanity, both as individuals and as mobs, which are ultimately individualist because every person in the mob wants to use the mob as their personal army to achieve social acceptance without having to contribute toward a positive direction for society. For this reason, I see nihilism as a clearing out of all the insanity of the Leftist years and The Enlightenment.™

From that space of zero belief in humanity, it is possible to notice nature and the pattern order of reality, and from that to understand what was common knowledge 2,000 years ago, including the divinity inherent to life and the necessity of sane and normal practices like patriarchy, nationalism, reverence and warlike aggression.

[–]appolodorus 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This response reveals the mystifying nature of post-modern society. There are far to few people thinking like this, every time a crack a book by an ancient Grecian or an ancient Roman I weep for how far our people have fallen. And yet there may still be hope.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The nature of modernity is individualism, and with that, we stop paying attention to the world and pay more attention to our individual concerns and those of the group because both of human. This creates a consensual hallucination that the types of thoughts that are convenient for human minds are in fact the patterns found in the world, when the opposite is true. Plato saw this happening back in his day and wrote of it with his metaphor of the cave; clearly, this is a zero-day exploit in the human brain that has never been patched. The only solution is to put our best people in charge so they can figure out reality and then rule accordingly, knowing that most people lack the genetic/biological ability to do so or the inclination.

[–]MarcusCamillius 6 points7 points  (1 child)

What do you think is in store for 2017 for the alt right? Where do you think we should focus our energies?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

2017 is the year when Donald Trump begins to change American law, but more importantly, he has changed the playing field by refuting the accusation of "racism."

This campaign was interesting. The Left was accustomed to using its magic word "racist" to make white people stop advocating for their own interests; when they used it on Trump and his followers, they shrugged and said, "If you say so." This broke the power of the Left.

In addition, we are seeing a wave across the West, including USA and Europe, where people are realizing that Leftist policies have failed, and that we have to change direction if we do not want to be dragged to certain destruction by these policies.

For this reason, I suggest we start with "baby steps" by removing the laws in our way. I mention the triad of affirmative action, civil rights and anti-discrimination laws as a starting point; if we restore freedom of association, the normal functional people are going to break away and leave the freaky rainbow nation of deracinated people of all races and the "beige horizon" mixed race people to their own fate. We need to be able to break free and pursue our own goals, and that requires getting rid of 70 years of Leftist rules designed to stop us from breaking away from the herd and living sane lives on our own. That would be my first point of focus.

[–]Demilichmynuts 3 points4 points  (7 children)

How do you feel about current Republican's attitudes toward global warming, sustainability, and environmentalism?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Demilich rules!

  1. Global warming: this is a scapegoat. The real problem is overpopulation, which means not enough land for nature, which in turn means local effects in climate, pollution and other nasty things. The Left seized on climate change as a way to force wealth transfer from the first world to the third, which will help neither group. It will create an unsustainable population bloom in the third world that can only end in tears, and will cripple the first world at a time when it needs to rebuild.
  2. Sustainability: you know what needs to be [expletive deleted] sustainble? Our civilization. People are not having kids, because they are miserable. People are self-destructing, because they are miserable. People are giving up because they are miserable. What is the common vein here? That people are miserable, because modern society with its bureaucracy, diversity, consumerism, mob rule, etc. is a miserable experience on an existential level, which indicates how we think about life and whether we find meaning in it. If we make civilization livable again, people are going to stop chasing these fantasies of consumerism and gadgets and get back to a focus on real, normal, and healthy living. At that point, society naturally stabilizes.
  3. Environmentalism: I am a deep ecologist which means that I recognize that the only sensible environmentalism consists of re-structuring our society so that environmentally sane practices are part of daily life. This very much follows the National Socialist environmental policy of re-structuring Western society around the needs of nature, and seeking to represent humankind and nature both in its designs.

I defined these first because it allows you to compare Republican ideals to these. Republicans will solve nothing; they are a slow retreat that hopes to make some money on the way, and they have failed their people. It is time for them to go and be replaced by an honest realist movement, which would include something like the ideals expressed above.

[–]BillyRoper 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Would you support decentralizing society into more gemeinschaft agricultural concerns, as Walter Darre did?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Agriculture is the soul of civilization; it is what enables us to survive without moving around. I favor decentralization whenever possible because it is more flexible, and so, I think that idea calls for serious consideration as to how we would adapt it in our time and alongside a political order like the four "pillars". More people should be aware of Darre's ideas however, as they seem to have fallen into "the memory hole" for most.

[–]BillyRoper 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Dr. Pierce liked the idea, in fact, he wrote the Turner Diaries from a future perspective where the 'Blood and Soil' had come to fruition.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I always say The Turner Diaries as the basis of much of your work: a recognition that fiction is more powerful than non-fiction, and that people want stories which make them want to get in there and fight for what is right. Dr. Pierce is a great man in this life and the next. The fame of a dead man's deeds...

[–]BillyRoper 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh, absolutely, when I wrote 'Hasten The Day', I wanted to update 'The Turner Diaries' by combining it with the scenario outlined by Thomas Chittum in 'Civil War Two', fictionalized of course, to push the balkanization meme in literary form. I channeled Dr. P for all the dry snark. You remember that wry grin of his. ;->

[–]amerika_blog[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, I do. A highly educated, thoughtful, witty and humorous man. I miss him all the time, because he had a power that enabled him to get the core of any issue and express it as a simple but nuanced metaphor.

[–]SplatterSabbath 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Hello Brett, I'll think of a question in a minute, possibly, but hello!

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Howdy! Thanks for attending.

[–]CC_AMA_Throwaway 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Hello Brett, I'm a fan of your writings especially on Heavy Metal, and got some questions for you:

Do you think WW3, and/or any other conflicts/upheaval on a massive global will occur sometime in the next couple of months? If so, what will you do if something like that would occur?

As a member of the upcoming so-called "Millennial" generation it seems like almost all my peers are quite blue-pilled/left-wing/SJW etc. Is Trump's victory a sign of right-wing views becoming more and more mainstream and acceptable to normies? Or is the ""culture war"" only going to get more divisive and hostile in the coming years with the left trying to double down even harder on those who don't conform?

Speaking of which, in general, what general advice would you give to a young man trying to find their way in modern-day North American society?

This is probably going to sound like a really dumb question, but if you had to choose one single Metal album to show to say a University Professor or prominent Classical composer to "prove" that Metal is a style of music with genuine artistic merit which one would you choose?

Have you ever listened to Fanisk/Eldrig? There's a negative - and in my opinion extremely unfair - review on DMU of their album Noontide by Cory van der Pol. Whatever one has against NSBM for disagreeing with views or having politics in music whatever, their music is really no more (in fact arguably less) political than say Graveland, and is more influenced by esoteric look at things. Irregardless I personally consider their work to be criminally underrated on the Internet, and for them to be easily the best (and quite possibly only really enduring) Metal act of the 21st century. Even if you dislike/hate them I think you should give them a fair shot, and either way I would very eagerly love to read your review irregardless.

Have you ever listened to the albums The Spectre Within and/or Awaken the Guardian by Fates Warning? It's some of the best of Metal in my opinion, and even though you focus considerably more on Death and Black Metal than the classic stuff I've never seen you talk about them either way and I'd be curious to know your thoughts.

Forgive me if I am mistaken in any of this, but it looks like earlier in your life/writings you were a rather adamant user of certain psychoactive substances - namely that of Cannabis - for mind-expanding reasons among others, but that now you no longer engage in such things. What are your thoughts on drugs today? Especially those of psychedelics like mushrooms, LSD, DMT, etc.

Are you familiar with U.G. Krishnamurti? I would be really curious to see what you think of him especially w/r/t your beliefs on nihilism, reality, etc.

What religion do you think would be best to base Western Society on from a realistic perspective. Christianity? Neo-Paganism? Atheism? Something else?

What are your thoughts on Pepe/Kek/Meme Magic? Or chan culture in general?

Are you familiar with the comedy of Sam Hyde/Million Dollar Extreme? If so, what do you think of it?

Even if you don't answer most/any of those questions, thanks for doing this regardless and I wish you best of luck in the future.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Do you think WW3, and/or any other conflicts/upheaval on a massive global will occur sometime in the next couple of months?

Possibly. If Obama wants to hang on to power, this is how we can do it: he will pick a fight with some power the US cannot easily best, which will create a war that will require his continued presidency.

Is Trump's victory a sign of right-wing views becoming more and more mainstream and acceptable to normies?

Yes, or rather, he is the start of a wave that is moving from ideological/emotional thinking to realistic/time-proven thinking. We have been living through seven decades of Leftist thinking, and Trump has pointed us back toward reality-based thinking.

Speaking of which, in general, what general advice would you give to a young man trying to find their way in modern-day North American society?

Good question. First step is to find mental clarity. Avoid all the proxies for this like martial arts and lifting weights; get to know yourself and what you desire. Next step is to find a wife and start reading the classics.

This is probably going to sound like a really dumb question, but if you had to choose one single Metal album to show to say a University Professor or prominent Classical composer to "prove" that Metal is a style of music with genuine artistic merit which one would you choose?

Painfully difficult question. One of the following:

  1. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
  2. Incantation - Onward To Golgotha
  3. Emperor - The Nightside Eclipse
  4. Burzum - Det Som Engang Var
  5. Suffocation - Pierced From Within
  6. Deicide - Legion
  7. Demilich - Nespithe
  8. At The Gates - The Red In The Sky Is Ours
  9. Samael - Worship Him
  10. Pestilence - Consuming Impulse

Have you ever listened to Fanisk/Eldrig?

Not really my thing. Graveland however, yess.....

Have you ever listened to the albums The Spectre Within and/or Awaken the Guardian by Fates Warning?

Yes, I appreciate both of these. Fates Warning is a great example of late heavy metal with progressive overtones that do not take over the Iron Maiden influenced songwriting.

What are your thoughts on drugs today?

"Pursue meditation instead." I learned a lot, but when the learning was done, I got out. Not everyone did, and if there is any warning inherent in this practice, it is to use it toward an end, and when you have learned what you can, hit the eject button.

Are you familiar with U.G. Krishnamurti?

I like much of what he writes, but am more disposed toward systematic analysis in the German and French style.

What religion do you think would be best to base Western Society on from a realistic perspective.

I think we need not a religion, but like Huxley's Perennialism, an interpretation of all faiths to bend them toward the naturalistic, mythological and aggressive nature of the West.

What are your thoughts on Pepe/Kek/Meme Magic?

Praise Kek!

Are you familiar with the comedy of Sam Hyde/Million Dollar Extreme?

I enjoy what he does. Seems like an astute guy who knows how to hide deep information in trivial information, which is an intense skill.

Thank you for asking such studied and penetrating questions!

[–]The_DogeWhispererOne Sexy Goy 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Can you elaborate further on your stance on weight lifting/marshal arts? I've always seen weight lifting as the only true way for a man to see his potential both mentally and physically.

[–]StudntRdyTeachrApear 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Indeed. Would love for him to elaborate on this as well, because frankly, it's a glaring flaw in an otherwise informative series of responses.

[–]citizen_beyond 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he's just saying to focus on mental clarity.

I like to attempt both. Weightlifting is often a sort of meditative experience for me.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can you elaborate further on your stance on weight lifting/marshal arts?

I do not oppose these things, but they are most commonly fetishized and used as a substitute for what actually must be done, just like many thing that religion alone can save us from civilization decline and scapegoat anything else as the problem while fetishizing a theocracy that cannot stop the decline.

In general, what you really need is this: self-discipline.

This is very rarely mentioned. I wonder why? The human pattern is to find a mentally convenient non-solution as a type of inverse scapegoat, and then to blame some emotionally-convenient target instead of looking at the actual problem. Human civilizations fail because as individuals we tend toward solipsism, and the worst aspect of this is that we impose on reality the type of boxy mental structures which are easy for our brains and therefore make us feel "in control," and the only way out of this is a diligent attempt to re-verify our ideas constantly as complying with reality. It is an internet trope to say "correlation does not equal causation," but the truthful part -- most people are semi-truthful -- that they are hinting at is that we need our ideas to correspond to external reality, not just the sense of "reason" (human logic) that was enshrined as holy by The Enlightenment.™

What are your thoughts on Hans-Hermann Hoppe?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Democracy -- The God That Failed is inspirational reading for all Right-wingers. It is a sensible takedown of democracy which should be read alongside Nietzsche and Alexis de Tocqueville Democracy in America; it helps to be familiar with Plato The Republic already.

[–]lakesupeerior 0 points1 point  (2 children)

What are your opinions on physical removal?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Physical removal is necessary.

I favor gentle kinds of physical removal: reparations only with repatriation for non Western European people in North America, and removal of laws that protect people from their bad decisions, with the idea that eventually it will be time to exile career Leftists -- who are, by the criminal nature of Leftism, also criminals -- to Brazil.

So, helicopter rides... with gentle landings, far away, and those Leftists become someone else's problem.

[–]lakesupeerior 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why Brazil and not Canada

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]reactionarytree 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Would you say that you are still a monarchist like you stated in our interview a while back? https://fanghornforest.wordpress.com/2014/10/09/an-interview-with-brett-stevens-of-amerika/

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Absolutely. I identify four "pillars" of restoring Western Civilization and nurturing it to greatness:

  1. Aristocracy: put the best in charge of the rest, because putting the rest in charge of the best is death.
  2. Hierarchy: at every level, people are ranked by their ability to achieve results, putting the more competent above the rest so that we may all benefit from their competence. This includes free market capitalism, as kept in check by a caste system and cultural rule.
  3. Nationalism: one ethnic group = one nation. The "proposition nation" is dead as concept and reality. We need tribalism, but of the sort that also allows us to act as racial groups, for example pan-European awareness through European national awareness (Germany for Germans) and extending that to the rest of the world (Nigeria for Nigerians, Japan for Japanese, Israel for Jews).
  4. Transcendence: instead of looking at what is happening in the world and declaring it to be "good," we need to figure out what our values say that good is, and impose it on the world. This requires understanding the order of nature as not just good, but smarter than us, and not opposed to any metaphysical or religious truths.

Long story short, I am very much a monarchist, as every nationalist really should be. Monarchy requires an aristocracy, caste system, strong national culture and some form of religious practice and vision in order to prosper. This will make the strongest and best future for us on the alt right.

[–]BillyRoper 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm glad that you mentioned religious practice, however that evolves, as being integral to a healthy nation.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am rather fond of religious practice. It unifies the nation and dovetails with culture. On a personal level, I spend many years recognizing certain aspects of reality, and only later was able to realize that these in fact constituted a type of faith. I am one of the more religious people to walk this earth as a result, despite having no formal church or even doctrine. But there is no way that life is random, and that there is not a metaphysical underpinning to all that we experience. I consider Johannes "Meister" Eckhart, Plato and the Bhagavad-Gita as my guides here, inspired of course by Arthur Schopenhauer.

[–]Xtraobligatory 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What do you think is the alt-right's weakest link right now? What part of our platform is being neglected that we need to reinvigorate going into the Trump administration?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The weakest link on the alt right is that there is confusion about what the alt right is. For a short definition, the alt right is the original Right that is not restrained by political correctness, and so can tell the truth about homogeneity being the best option for society, that equality is nonsense, that democracy is toxic and that diversity is a path to doom.

As far as the neglected parts of our platform, the biggest one is freedom of association. All of us need to put pressure on Donald Trump to remove toxic civil rights laws so that we can have freedom of association again and begin building our community.

[–]reactionarytree 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What are your thoughts on the Culture of Critique by Kevin MacDonald?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He makes solid points and I am an enthusiastic reader of all of his writing. The bigger point that I like to make is this, and it is so taboo that it shocks most people:

Every ethnic group acts in its own self-interest.

Each group wants to be first in line and to conquer the rest. This is why diversity fails: self-interest does not overlap except on a lowest common denominator so generic that it satisfies no one, which is why diversity results in low-grade racial warfare manifesting itself as crime, violence, vandalism and resentment. Every other group wants to conquer us, at some level, and so we need to be separate from any group. At that point, the "culture of critique" becomes visible as a method more than a goal, because the goal of every group is the same: displace all others, conquer them, take their stuff, rape their women. This is the nature of evolution itself and does not reflect badly on these groups.

[–]reactionarytree 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What are your favorite blogs, websites, podcasts, and youtube channels in the alt right movement?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Thank you for asking. There are too many to list. I have a list of blogs and news sources on Amerika (main link "blogs"), and I tend to read the two parts of the original source named Alternative Right, which lives on as Alternative Right and Radix Journal. I also read Nationalist and Traditionalist blogs such as Garvey's Ghost, Atavisionary, W.M. Briggs, Bruce Charlton, RightOn, Date Jesus, Return Of Kings, VDARE, Peter Heft, John Derbyshire, Jack Donovan, Outside In, AntiDem, Malcolm Pollack, Dissident Right, Ramzpaul, Jew Among You, Change of Seas, Not Politically Correct, The Thinking Housewife, Sydney Traditionalists and last but not least Fanghorn Forest.

I am just branching out to podcasts now, but I like what The Right Stuff and VDARE do. I also read American Renaissance daily, as well as anything Steve Sailer and VDARE put out, in addition to trawling the Drudge Report for the stories relevant to nationalists.

Many old resources do not exist on deathmetal.org or are arcane to find. Do you agree that the DLA needs to be repaired, or should the old bowels of ANUS remain obscure?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It has always needed repairing. The DLA is an ongoing project interrupted by my desire to explore politics, and when I am able to return to it, it will be reborn in a new form.

Those who have been faithful, you are not forgotten.

[–]MarcMan13 2 points3 points  (3 children)

What is your opinion on homosexuals and bisexuals being in the alt right movement, such as Greg Johnson, James O'Meara or (previously) Jack Donovan?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Homosexuality is a complex topic. First, they occur among our people; second, they tend to die young, suggesting that they are genetically different than the mainstream. Finally, homosexuals are a group in which a great deal of talent rests.

Some say we should not tolerate them, others advocate for equal tolerance. My eyes grow red and my teeth gnash at the mention of anything "equal," so you can guess what my response will be, which is to take a middle path.

I say bring back the closet. Let gay people be quietly gay, as the gentlemen you mention above tend to want to. If you target them, they will pretend to be heterosexual and will take on heterosexual families, which will spread those genes for early death and create fractured families; no one can fully love a wife if he wants boyfriend. If you norm them, you expose our people to behavior they do not need to see, especially when young. So take a middle path: let there be gay bars and theaters, let gay people do their thing... so long as they keep it quiet and do not work against our interests.

Beyond that, I do not think about it much. I enjoy the writings of all three of the gentlemen you mentioned and think they are a credit to our movement.

[–]MarcMan13 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I very much agree with all points. Total intolerance and total tolerance in this case have proven to both be counterproductive.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Great summary. The point is to get beyond the Leftist ideal of tolerance and its opposite, and instead to look at what is merely realistic. Gays exist; they can be allies. Yes, the idea of homosexual sex strikes me as a bit weird and nothing I want to experience, to be honest, but I see no reason to eject a comrade for having that preference. It is always best to accept people as they are, and then select those who understand what must be done and to ride with that group.

Lately, I've seen a lot of people hating on Breivik and completely mis-characterizing him. Care to give your thoughts?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Anders Breivik is a hero. Instead of shooting minorities, he took the fight to the people responsible, which is white Leftists. He informed them that the choice to be a Leftist was not without consequences, which is why they are terrified of him. He did not fight their proxies -- the human shields they create in minorities, women, gays, trans, etc. -- but fought them directly. What an intellect, and what a man!

Just as there are different shades of Conservatism, are there different classifications of the Alt-Right?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Good question. People are not equal, and so there are as many interpretations of the alt right as there are people, but these tend to cluster because there are only a few directions that people can take that are honestly distinct. The alt right is composed of ideas from the New Right, National Socialism, Neoreaction/Anarcho-Capitalism, Paleoconservatism, Völkisch conservatism, Traditionalism, Nietzscheanism and ecofascism. Each person takes after their primary influence, which is usually one of these. For that reason, you can see shades of the alt right as inherited from those, with some being "Neoreactionary Alt Right" for example and others being more Traditionalist and having that interpretation. For example, I am the Nietzschean alt right with a heavy dose of Evola and Plato.

Looking through history, what civilization(s)/era(s) would you consider closest to your ideal government/society/culture?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We have to go back a ways, but the ancient ones (who rule once more) are the most influential: I think of the ancient Scots, German and non-Athenian Greeks who set up societies which were very much aristocratic, hierarchical, tribal and transcendent, but also sensitive and thoughtful enough to come up with the basics of civilizations that still inspire us to this day. From the Scots, I take an important idea, which is that "formalizing" or setting things down in words and rules is a bad idea; from the Germans, I take their spiritual concept of the beauty of nature; from the Greeks, harmony and balance. These are eternal aspects of any traditional Indo-European society and have been found throughout history, but more on a local basis than in wide-spanning regions.

When's the React-o-lution?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Great to see you here -- thanks for participating. I read everything you write with relish.

The great solution is to put smarter people in charge and oppress those who are less capable, because that way, we all benefit from higher competence. There is no substitute for this fundamental principle which is of the highest importance.

Our civilization is drowning in a wave of incompetence, and it makes slaves of our intelligent, who spend all of their days cleaning up the mess made by the rest. That exhausts them, and they do not breed. This crushes the backbone of the civilization.

From that simple principle -- the best oppress the rest, instead of the rest oppressing the best -- we see the timeless principle of realism, which is time-proven results, with us "conserving" what has turned out best over all time. It allows us to see what our ancestors took for granted, which is a vision of civilization as not just functional, but geared toward making the best of life in all ways.

Did I mention that the Scots invented much of this?

[–]nephilim_fields 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Your interest and writings on underground metal go back decades. Are there any metal albums and/or bands whose themes and music you find particularly* simpatico with alt-right ideas?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

A question I did not expect. In my view, all of metal is simpatico with the alt right because metal is realism plus mythology. But if I had to pick a few... and it's hard to just pick a few...

  1. Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss. If you are a nationalist, and you want to awaken the ancient spirit in yourself, you owe it to yourself to explore this and Filosofem. You can read and hear its creators words via Thulean Perspective.
  2. Infester - To The Depths... In Degradation. This is music for tuning your soul, and like most soul-tuning music, it is expressed at a level below consciousness, a murky dream-like imagery. For the brave of heart.
  3. Incantation - Onward To Golgotha. This album expresses the best of death metal: a descent into the subconscious, away from human civilization and individualism, to discover the fervent rage for order and beauty in life.
  4. Absurd - Asgardsrei. Get the original 1998 mix; the re-issue is garbage. Pure pagan nationalist madness. Entirely enjoyable and complex enough to listen to repeatedly.
  5. Darkthrone - Under a Funeral Moon. In my view, this was the album that broke black metal out of "normie" life entirely, and put it into the feral and naturalistic state from which reality is comprehensible and society is nonsense.
  6. Unleashed - Where No Life Dwells. Our origins lie in the north, the Hyperborean north, and Unleashed discovers them with this intensely rhythmic but precisely structured death metal album.
  7. Ildjarn - Forest Poetry. We need to rediscover ourselves, and this album of a musical journey into the deep dark forest without priests or bureaucrats is the thing that can jar a soul loose and make it rediscover itself, and through its intuition, discover reality.

That is the short list. There are many more, but these are most important for an alt right perspective.

Ah, Hendrik Moebus. (Absurd) Another good guy I had the pleasure of getting to know when he and I stayed in a boarding house together, a couple of miles from the National Alliance headquarters back in the summer of 2000, before his arrest and extradition back to Germany. The "Free Hendrik Moebus" rally I led in front of the German embassy in DC is the one I got attacked and bloodied at, lol.

Probably the exodus of Western people from Asia and how they settled in Europe, becoming more than a wandering tribe but a group committed to the idea of civilization without the doom that humans bring to all advanced civilization (narcissism, solipsism, individualism).

[–]FashWave30Nat Soc 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What is your ideal form of government?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No government!

Conservatives are anarchists. We dislike government, but do not mind "authority," or strong leaders. What we reject is the idea that there should be some bureaucracy to manage us and save us from ourselves. Let Darwin do his blessed work, and each person face the results of his own actions, including early death if that is the case.

In place of government, I prefer strong culture; nationalism allows this. That way, instead of trying to have an incorruptible police officer for every citizen, we let citizens enforce social standards on one another. This is both less "fascist" and less permissive than modernity. To keep that together, we need military leaders like kings and aristocrats to handle defense, cultural activities and giving us an example to follow.

  1. California: we need a dumping ground for white liberals so they can see the end results of their policies, and leave us the heck alone.
  2. Tobacco: I am smoking, right now, a glorious mix of 60-40 Cotton Boll Twist and Hal O' The Wynd. This combines the strongest American Burley, which is in a form seen by most as "hick" which is unfair and stupid, and a classic Virginia from Scotland. The end result tastes like smoked marzipan.

[–]marczukerberg 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Marxist or Capitalist?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Strongly capitalist, with the caveat that capitalism is an economic system, not a political system. It cannot exist in a vacuum; we need other forces to regulate it, like strong national culture, a caste system so that the "consumers" who define the market are our smartest and not our lowest common denominator, and powerful leaders like aristocrats and kings. Marxism and socialism simply fail whenever they are tried, and they leave behind zombified people who seem to depend on others to tell them what to do, which over multiple generations becomes a genetic trait of the aggregate population. These ideologies are best avoided in any and every form.

One important distinction here is that while any set of political beliefs may be seen as an ideology, the basis of Leftism is ideology itself, or thinking about what "should" be instead of what is. Conservatism consists of time-proven actions that lead to successes above the norm; Leftism is entirely conjectural, and consists of our human intent -- what we wish were true -- applied with force as a kind of groupthink, mob rule, hive mind, cult and gang. Naturally this destroys societies, and Marxism is just one variation of this that includes the idea of the State subsidizing its citizens.

[–]truth-slayer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hi Brett, thanks for doing this.

  1. Were you a nonconformist from a young age? Did anything in your upbringing lead you to your current views? My guess is that we may have similar backgrounds. Smart, not bullied, but sensitive and never had any interest in the fake popularity games that people play, starting in grade school, as far as fashion, slang, music, and everything is concerned.

  2. Your tobacco enthusiasm is interesting. What is your view of alcohol and marijuana? Caffeine?

  3. Is there any hard core leftist that you highly respect? If so, who and why?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Were you a nonconformist from a young age?

Not really a non-conformist per se, but on my own trip. I spent a lot of time in the forest and found this more informative than anything I could discover among human society. This led to me seeing things a different way, which in turn meant that my objectives were incompatible with what the "normies" wanted. Luckily, this allowed me to realize that our problem did not have a location, but was a psychology shared among most people, and needed to be fought on the level of ideas instead of tangible targets and enemies.

Did anything in your upbringing lead you to your current views?

Mostly time spent in the forest. I got away from humanity, saw how things worked, and then saw the beauty of the natural way, and have never been able to re-integrate into human civilization.

Smart, not bullied, but sensitive and never had any interest in the fake popularity games that people play, starting in grade school, as far as fashion, slang, music, and everything is concerned.

You are correct. I had to go my own path, because while I could pretend to be normal, what they found meaningful never gave me a sense of well-being.

Your tobacco enthusiasm is interesting. What is your view of alcohol and marijuana? Caffeine?

Nicotine has many cognitive benefits and is not harmful if not inhaled. Alcohol has its benefits, but I tend to favor the "old school" forms like wine and beer. Distilled spirits can be a bit much. Caffeine is, as the Mormons say, a drug just like any other. But a very helpful one, at times. Remember to hydrate.

Is there any hard core leftist that you highly respect? If so, who and why?

I enjoy a number of authors and musicians who are Leftist, but it is a different form of respect. Ever since I started reading philosophy, I realized that life is a competition for who gets the clearest and most correct answer, and so those I respect the most are those who are most realistic.

[–]Darth_Sidious69 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I know that your main area of interest lately has been politics. But metal music clearly will always be a major part of your life. Do you still attend metal shows?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yes, I do. I will always enjoy metal music and some punk music. When favorites perform locally, I show up if I can. I still listen to a lot of it, interspersed with the Bruckner and Mozart, and consider it the only real art form of my generation, especially underground metal.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Do your associations with nazi.org, nsbm.org, and the admiration for Savitri Devi remain?

Yes, they do. I was involved with the Libertarian National Socialist Green (LNSG) organization back in the day, and think the basic ideas there were relevant far before their time. I was also involved with CORRUPT at the time the term "alt right" was coined, working along similar lines. NSBM was more just to point out that so much of metal was Nazi-inspired, Nazi-friendly or at least strongly not Leftist. I admire Savitri Devi and enjoy much of what she has written. Her metaphor of the crucible is the perhaps her most fertile notion.

[–]Darth_Sidious69 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I always wondered why the American death metal band Infester was included with NS Black Metal bands on that site.

[–]amerika_blog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That, and just because they are great and took a lot of flak for having the swastika on their album.

Then again, early death metal is rife with Nazism. I never knew it at the time. Morbid Angel thanked "a leader from the past who cannot be named" on their second album. On the Bathory album that went closest to death metal, Hammerheart, there was a sunwheel. Somewhere I have the copy of Newsweek that shows Craig Pillard of Incantation waving NSDAP flags in front of the white house. Everywhere I looked in old school death metal and black metal, there was sympathy for extreme views, not just Nazism but Nietzschean social Darwinism, eugenics, misanthropy, monarchism, re-wilding, and anti-humanist beliefs like Satanism including the idea that "culling" is a necessary sacrament.

If you were to play the odds and foresee a direction based on current conditions, what are your predictions for possible scenarios in the coming 20 to 50 years?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Your name reminds me of a great blog. Coincidence?

Possible scenarios in the next 20-50 years...

  1. Right wing surge: in Europe and US, Right wing takes center stage and begins peeling back the layers of Leftism, causing the West to rebirth itself.
  2. Underground surge: Right wing loses hard, and Left takes power, which gives the Right intensity as a rebellion against the mainstream, splintering society.
  3. Resurrectionism: people bypass politics entirely and demand a Western restoration, throwing out non-conformists and elevating those who understand this to high positions where they have great influence.
  4. Clinton-Obama resistance: seeing the rising right-wing wave, Clinton and Obama start WWIII as a means to retain power, and essentially seize authority from democracy. Very typical, but also brazen.
  5. We were always doomed: society has gone too far into Idiocracy, dissolves into riots, and results in total social chaos and destruction. At this point, it is a good time to own cluster munitions.

No, but if I were an African, I would be an African nationalist planning reconquest of Africa followed by strict eugenics. If Africa pared itself down to the morally good people above 120 IQ points, it would create the basis for being competitive with all other societies. There would need to be some further evolution for social cooperation beyond that point, but it could easily be achieved. One reason for repatriating African-Americans to Africa is that with new skills and slightly higher average IQs they could help with the reconquest of the continent, which is currently owned by Chinese, Indian and Arab concerns to the detriment of its people.

Great question. It is hard to find a single list. I like Howard Bloom's list although I would leave off most of the 20th century stuff. The Eagle Forum list is also excellent. For modern literature, the GoodReads list is a decent start, although it includes too much political stuff from the latter half of the 20th century.

I have four questions:

  1. I've been reading your stuff for a long time, all the way back during the A.N.U.S. days. I've noticed your stance on Christianity has changed drastically. Back then you would call for a Christian genocide, now it seems like you identify with Christianity yourself. What happened?

  2. If you had to pick the best death metal and black metal album, which would you pick? Back in the day, you said it was "Hvis lyset tar oss" and "final holocaust". Did you change your mind?

  3. If you had to pick just one beer as being your favorite, which one would it be?

  4. Did you get married after all these years?

[–]amerika_blog[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've noticed your stance on Christianity has changed drastically. Back then you would call for a Christian genocide, now it seems like you identify with Christianity yourself. What happened?

Nietzsche was my primary source of inspiration on the anti-Christian argument, but the feeling came from the observation that in the 1980s, almost every public Christian was a flagrant idiot. They wanted to censor records, jail potheads for life, regulate gays, force prayer in school, end abortion -- although I have never objected to that -- and make the country a theocracy, but they were unwilling to talk about real problems like diversity, mob rule, existential misery and the like. This made me leery of Christianity.

Over the next dozen years, I realized that this pattern of decline (scapegoating plus ignoring actual problems in order to keep the social appearance of normalcy) has infected every public institution and Christianity is just one of many, not the source. I call the type of social control that relies on appearance over reality "Crowdism," because it is a type of collectivized individualism that tears down human societies. The root of it is found in our tendency to arrange the world as is convenient for our minds, instead of understanding it on its own terms, and religion can be a great aid in achieving the type of moral and intellectual discipline required for that. Its main advantage, if done correctly, is that religion inspires people to study Creation as the work of a super-intelligent divine being.

As far as my own religious leanings, they were always there; nihilism was a radical skepticism toward human illusions, and the anti-religious side was a secondary effect of that and mostly concerned with bad forms of religion instead of trying to disprove metaphysics itself, which cannot be done. The scientific position is agnosticism; the poetic position is religion; I would style myself as a fan of "realistic metaphysics" in the vein of Advaita Vedanta, R.W. Emerson or Johannes Eckhart.

If you had to pick the best death metal and black metal album, which would you pick? Back in the day, you said it was "Hvis lyset tar oss" and "final holocaust". Did you change your mind?

I changed my mind about trying to choose a single best. As with all things in life, there is a bell curve, and the top 1% are really interesting while the lower 70% are totally ignorable and you miss very little until you get to the top 10% anyway. Both of those albums are fantastic.

If you had to pick just one beer as being your favorite, which one would it be?

Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout.

Did you get married after all these years?

Yes, finally. It was something I had always hoped for but in a time where most people are mental defectives or at least flamboyant neurotics it is hard to hope for life partnership. And yet it occurs all the time. A friend of mine just married an intelligent, moral and militant woman. They are out there, so seek them with aggressive diligence!
