PEOPLE, LONG-LIVING; SHORT-LIVING PEOPLE - A people that desires and knows how to preserve itself in history, ensure its biological line, and maintain the longevity of its civilisation.
This concept comes from the philosopher Raymond Ruyer. The Arabs, Chinese, Jews, Indians, and others are typical examples of such long-living peoples. Numbed by Western civilisation, which they tragically created and which has turned against them, Europeans today no longer see themselves as a long-living people. For like short-living people, they are not concerned about their ancestors or their posterity — their lineage, cultural heritage, or future. They are devoted to the cult of the immediate present, in their pursuit of small individual pleasures and in the nervous preservation of their material acquisitions.
Small peoples are destroyed by their demographic, military, and technological disadvantages. Great peoples, on the other hand, who sink into the oblivion of time, die because of anaemia, of a lack of will — despite the apparent force of their actually fragile civilisation. This was the destiny of the Incas, the Aztecs, the Egyptians, and others. A long-living people is characterised by the following qualities: demographic vigour, collective ethnic consciousness, popular solidarity, and a common spiritual ideal. A long-living people possesses deep biological roots, a memory and common history, an idea of the divine and a project. This is everything that Western civilisation lacks, since it can’t even project itself five years into the future. All this is fit for reconstruction.

POPULISM - The position which defends the people’s interests before that of the political class — and advocates direct democracy.
This presently pejorative term must be made positive. The prevailing aversion to populism actually expresses a covert contempt for authentic democracy. Like its corollary antidemagoguery, anti-populism is a semantic ruse of politicians and bourgeois intellectuals — to deflect the people’s will, especially that of the modest social strata, reputedly dangerous, because they are the most nationalist.
The cosmopolitan bourgeoisie, whether of Left or Right, that presently holds power attacks ‘populism’ because it rejects direct democracy and because it’s convinced that the people is ‘politically incorrect’. On the subject of immigration, the death penalty, school discipline, fiscal policies — on numerous other subjects — it’s well known that the people’s deepest wishes (as evident in referendums and elsewhere) never, despite the incessant media propaganda, correspond to those of the government. It’s logical, then, that those who have confiscated the ‘popular will’ tend to associate populism with despotism.
PREFERENCE, EUROPEAN; NATIONAL PREFERENCE, ALIEN PREFERENCE - A political notion inherited from Greek democracy, which accords superior rights to the City’s natives — to ‘citizens’.
It’s an idea of good sense — practiced by all peoples on Earth, except by sick Western societies (France particularly) — the idea that citizens in their own country ought to have an advantage of rights over foreign residents. What else could the notion of ‘citizenship’ — which the Left evokes in every realm, but whose principles it thoughtlessly violates — possibly mean?
--The refusal of national preference inevitably culminates in foreign preference: another sign that egalitarian ideology has become crazy, that it has inverted the egalitarian principle to favour the superiority of aliens. Foreign preference is a collective pathology, imposed by the reigning elites, though it won’t last. Such an abnormal situation can only lead — and this will be for the better — to an extremely grave crisis. Social harmony and peace are possible only with the Aristotelian principle of ‘every City its own privilege’.
PRESENTISM - Cult of the present, of the moment, of fashion — a cult distinct to Western society — forgetful of the past and indifferent to the future.
Presentism is a form of blindness — it’s the behaviour of ‘those whose eyes are on the ground, not the sky, not on what’s before or behind them’ — in the expression of the Breton painter and identitarian Yann-Ber Tillenon.
The long-term is never taken into account. Future generations don’t count, the notion of lineage, like that of foresight, is absent. Only the ‘present generation’ counts. But when a fashion ceases to be fashionable, ‘its look’, as Olivier Carré says, ‘becomes tacky’.
--Presentism fosters contempt for the survival of one’s people. It’s a consequence of a narcissistic individualism and the bourgeois spirit. It’s become a way of refusing a common future and a common past, memory and foresight, enrootment and collective ambition, identity and continuity.
Sorry john no cell phone service where I live and closing the tab did not help.
RACE, RACISM, ANTI-RACISM - A genetically distinct population.
The idea of a ‘pure race’ is obviously not a serious one. It’s the racial fact that counts. A race can be the stabilised product of an ancient melange. Contemporary genetics, out of favour with the dominant ideology, has well and truly confirmed humanity’s division into genetically statistical populations.
Races are not so much distinguished by phenotypic differences (skin colour, hair, height, etc.) as by genotypic variations affecting temperament and mental abilities — along with innate physiological and biological differences.
--Anti-racism, the indispensable viaticum of the self-righteous, is actually a form of xenophilia (the valorisation of the ‘Other’) and of race-phobia. Obsessed and terrified by the fact of race — a major problem with the advent of multi-racial society and the problems it brings — Western ideology has succumbed to both race-phobia and, contradictorily, race-mania. To declare oneself ‘anti-racist’ and to denounce racism are today an obligatory propriety for all ideologues, artists, politicians, and journalists, on the Left and the Right — an obligation as necessary as proclaiming oneself a ‘good Muslim’ in Saudi Arabia.
I don't know what to tell you, man. Good luck
I couldn’t get sound to work either. Usually works fine.
No worries I will work on this later. I got a lot out of why we fight and gave a little written input.
I'm sorry it didn't work out, bro
My personal reactions to BLM with/around some of my friends and family estranged me from a couple of people. (One friend, one family member)
No, I don't mean that way.
Most of my friends and family are liberal but basically roll their eyes at BLM
I mean my visceral reaction against the idiocy of BLM and the chimpouts.
mmm I see, sort of like a "why do you care" reaction they had?
"Why are you so upset about this?"
RESISTANCE AND RECONQUEST - Faced with their colonisation by peoples from the South and by Islam, Europeans, objectively speaking, are in a situation of resistance. Like Christian Spain between the Eighth and Fifteenth centuries, their project is one of reconquest.
--Not until the state is visibly colonised by aliens and Muslims (which won’t be long for reasons of demographics and enfranchisement) will there be revolt and resistance. For revolt and resistance arise only in the face of a power seen as alien and illegitimate. For the moment, civil society alone is affected and power still appears to be in native hands — thus no serious resistance is yet possible. But soon, in the course of things, aliens and Muslims will have their own municipalities, legislative
deputies, and ministers. It’s of some urgency, then, that we start preparing and organising the resistance — by every means possible, politically and metapolitically — so as to ready ourselves for that moment when the alien colonisers start taking over the public powers.
yeah. how did that wind up? was it something you talked about a lot that they just didn't get @Why Tea ?
I want to reconquer constantiople in my lifetime
Yes. With the friend I lost, I went into depth with him on how diversity was a weakness. He didn't want to believe it, but couldn't refute it. He broke off contact.
WILL TO POWER - The tendency of all healthy life to perpetuate itself — to assure its survival, its
superiority, and its capacity for creation.
--A people or civilisation that abandons its will to power inevitably perishes, for what doesn’t advance,
retreats — what doesn’t accept life as struggle hasn’t long to live.
i'd rather have no friends than libtarded friends tbh
if you cant understand how that harms us then you are effectively part of the prob imo
Yeah, with a lot of my liberal friends, I just talk to them much less nowadays
being married kind of gives me an excuse
plus a marginal amount of distance
but it's really just that we don't have much in common anymore
they're way too into bugman stuff
my gf is the normie i could stand being around after i red pilled.
@Deleted User yeah that's a deeper connection, a solid couple has a dialogue based on trust and the mutual benefit of each other and the couple
@John O - I love Alt Hype and never miss a video, but on that one it may be a bit of "just so" thinking. That would require those people executed to have not had any children, or at least to have had far fewer children than the others in the population.
Yeah, the math isn't perfect, and he admits it, and he accounts for that
It's an interesting hypothesis and I like thinking about those sorts of things, but I don't think that's "all the way there" in terms of an explanation.
