this really speaks to my personal motivation for belonging to the movement. Had I not read the Way of Men before learning about Identity Evropa, I might not have applied to join.
*"A serious decline of population appears in the West after Hadrian. . .. . A law of Septimus Severus speaks of a penuria hominum - a shortage of men. In Greece the depopulation had been going on for centuries. In Alexandria, which had boasted of its numbers, Bishop Dionysius calculated that the population had in his time [250 A.D.] been halved. He mourned to see “the human race diminishing and constantly wasting away.” Only the barbarians and Orientals were increasing, outside the Empire and within.(50)*
*How did Rome reduce its population? “Though branded as a crime, infanticide dourished. . . Sexual excesses may have reduced human fertility; the avoidance or deferment of marriage had a like effect.”(51) Adds Durant: “Perhaps the operation of contraceptio n, abortion and infanticide . . . had a dysgenio as well as a numerical effect. The ablest men married latest, bred least and died soonest.”(52) Christians were having children, the pagans were not: “Abortion and infanticide which were decimating pagan society, were forbidden to Christians as the equivalents to murder; in many instances Christians rescued exposed infants, baptized them, and brought them up with the aid of the community fund”(53)
Irony of ironies. Today (2002), an aging, dying Christian West is pressing the Third World and the Islamic World to accept contraception, abortion, and sterilization as the West has done... But why should they enter a suicide pact with us when they stand to inherit the earth when we are gone?*

“The characteristic fact of the moment is that the mediocre soul, recognizing itself as mediocre, has the audacity to assert the right of mediocrity and impose it everywhere.”

Interesting quote in this book from Nikolai Bukharin, one of the leading early Bolsheviks, on the assumptions underlying the goals of leftism. He said, "Plasticity of the organism is the silent theoretical premise of our course of action. If we were to take the point of view that racial and national characteristics were so great that it would take thousands of years to change them, then, naturally, all our work would be absurd."
That's fascinating! Changing one premise shifted an entire civilization. Where'd you find this gem? :)
I'm reading the book for a class on the history of the Soviet Union, if you just search "Everyday Stalinism" on Amazon I'm sure you can find it. It does a really good job providing an understanding of all the contraditictions in the Soviet system and how those contradictions impacted the lives of Russians in the 1930s. It's a very mainstream work but I would reccomend it if you're interested in the period.
Apparently the modern left's support for nationalism and group identity in ethnicities/races it considers to be oppressed, while at the same time viewing as evil any nationalism or group identity in ethnicities/races it considers to be oppressors, is not at all new. The Bolsheviks did the same thing. Look at the first and third paragraphs especially (note: I got the book used and the highlighting is not mine).
Wow, it is really strange how similar this is to today. The central paragraph, especially the end of it, builds on the stuff mentioned in the previous picture.
@Travis - IN Interesting that these are some of the same platforms pushed by the Democrats/Neoconservatives.
Revolt Against the Modern World. Just had to post this, because I can't across the bit about crying over human dignity" being, relating to slavery and class division mere rhetoric ", something I agree with. The current economic system is much more heinous a crime than we had in ancient times, if not simply for the fact that it has totally undermined the dignity that came with labor toward a higher purpose
"Having discovered fascism’s nesting ground in patriarchal families, Adorno now identified its natural habitat: traditional culture: “It is a well-known hypothesis that susceptibility to fascism is most characteristically a middle-class phenomenon, that ‘it is in the culture’ and, hence, that those who conform the most to this culture will be the most prejudiced.”15
Edmund Burke once wrote, “I would not know how to draw up an indictment against a whole people.”16 Adorno and the Frankfurt School, however, had just done exactly that. They flatly asserted that individuals raised in families dominated by the father, who are flagwaving patriots and follow the old-time religion, are incipient fascists and potential Nazis. As a conservative Christian culture breeds fascism, those deeply immersed in such a culture must be closely watched for fascist tendencies." - Patrick J. Buchanan, *The Death of the West*
On Games and Victory,
"The fasct remains that modern man needs these degraded and desecrated forms of action as if they were some kind of drug; he needs them to elude the sense of his inner emptiness, to be aware of himself, and to find in exasperated sensations the surrogate for the true meaning of life. One of the characteristics of the Western "Dark Age" ( Kali Yuga) is a sort of Titanic restlessness that knows no limitations of and that induces an existential fever and awakens new sources of elation and of stupefaction.

How bout those Yankees
I read this basically as, competition without a higher purpose or dedication outside one's self is the same as masturbation, filling an emptiness with a similar feeling but without true meaning
This is the conclusion of a book called Black Sun: Aryan Cults, Esoteric Nazism and the Politics of Identity by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke. Since it’s a “scholarly” work published by New York University Press, I was puzzled to see that he was treating many of the figures he addresses like Julius Ebola and Francis Parker Yockey with a good dose of objectivity. Usually any historian with a PhD will smear the subjects of their books with pejoratives and phrases like “but he was apparently crazy because he was a racist”. I got to the conclusion and now I’m thinking this guy might actually be on the level—woke, as they say.
He’s at least Molyneux-level woke. Anyway, the pages I posted are worth reading, and, for those of you that are into some of the weirder esoteric origins and trends in the greater White Identity movement, this is a good read. One of the only “scholarly” works that is moderately fair.
You guys might find this funny -
I'm currently reading the Journals of Lewis and Clark, and the party just came across an "anamale" they had never seen before but have heard the French refer to as a "Brarow" [badger], the first thing the party does is kill it and eat it. 😂
There's a story that a British ship landed on an island off of the Southern part of Africa, the island being incredibly densely populated with penguins that had never had exposure to humans. The sailors immediately start clubbing every one they see
I love our people, man.
