**Empire Of The Summer Moon by S C Gwynne**
Tis the season where normies will bash Whites for conquering the savage. Make sure to remind them that these people were literal barbarians with the good ol tale of the Fort Parker massacre.
The world, as it presents itself to us, is empty and cold.
Its communities have been dissolved; what remains are individuals rushing madly to and fro in the service of the
It may not be surprising, therefore, that many of us escape into another, much more pleasant world — that of computer and video games.
There one finds that which no longer exists in the real world — a community to belong to, solidarity, great heroic deeds, authentic chivalry, and true love.
In fact, video games are, for many of us, the last possibility to somehow perform heroic deeds, experience epic battles,
achieve victory in combat, and overcome defeat.
This is why many of us choose this path, and some even forget their real lives in favour of it. They don’t want to go back into the cold, senseless world that you've created, into which you’ve forced them.
You’ve nothing but disdain for their behaviour, and want to force them back into your reality. But they are fleeing from you.*
*We, however, understand our brothers and sisters.
We know why they run, why they don’t want to have anything more to do with this world, with your world.
So we say to you:
Come to us, brothers and sisters! In this life there are still battles to fight and struggles to win. We need your desire for action and your passion in order to defeat our parents.
Let’s end their reign of terror together. Let’s join each other in entering into a new era. Let’s build a new world
together. A world in which no one needs to run anymore.
A world in which there will be genuine values and true friendship. A world of community and solidarity. Come to
us, brothers and sisters. Join us in the struggle against the ’68ers. Defend yourself with all your strength. Join us
to reclaim our inheritance, our country, and our identity.
Come back, brothers and sisters! For we all belong together.
We are all generation identity.*
**Chapter 30 - Generation Identity by Markus Willinger**
Better than Chaplin's speech in the "Great Dictator" by many orders of magnitude.
I’ve thought of this as well. Nice to see these thoughts in print
What book is this?
Pretty sure it's from Rules for Radicals.
No. Definitely not. Don't think it's Taylor (White Identity, the next book). Maybe u just haven't gotten to this part...

Only a real progressive is willing to acknowledge when it’s time to turn around and retrace our steps
@Nemets What made you pick up this book in particular? I'm trying to dig into European history on the whole but it's hard to know what's worth reading and what's not.
if it's 600+ pages and the 1 star reviews on amazon aren't about formatting errors or freudianism it's usually at least half decent @Mick
How is it written? Is it tough to read, meaning, maybe a little dry?
I'm enjoying it, but it is pretty academic
Ok with academic, that can be written in a way to keep you reading imo.
I'm very inexperienced with Russia, does it get into what it means to be Russian wrt ethnicity?
I'm only 7% into it so far - but a lot of it is past the arrival of ryurik
I don't know if ethnic conflict was later, obviously soviet era
was a big deal
I've always been curious about the history of the various groups that fell under Russian influence
