What the Alt Right is.....From Vox Day at Vox Popoli

In the interest of developing a core Alt Right philosophy upon which others can build.
  1. The Alt Right is of the political right in both the American and the European sense of the term. Socialists are not Alt Right. Progressives are not Alt Right. Liberals are not Alt Right. Communists, Marxists, Marxians, cultural Marxists, and neocons are not Alt Right.
  2. The Alt Right is an ALTERNATIVE to the mainstream conservative movement in the USA that is nominally encapsulated by Russel Kirk's 10 Conservative Principles, but in reality has devolved towards progressivism. It is also an alternative to libertarianism.
  3. The Alt Right is not a defensive attitude and rejects the concept of noble and principled defeat. It is a forward-thinking philosophy of offense, in every sense of that term. The Alt Right believes in victory through persistence and remaining in harmony with science, reality, cultural tradition, and the lessons of history.
  4. The Alt Right believes Western civilization is the pinnacle of human achievement and supports its three foundational pillars: Christianity, the European nations, and the Rule of Law.
  5. The Alt Right is openly and avowedly nationalist. It supports all nationalisms and the right of all nations to exist, homogeneous and unadulterated by foreign invasion and immigration.
  6. The Alt Right is anti-globalist. It opposes all groups who work for globalist ideals or globalist objectives.
  7. The Alt Right is anti-equalitarian. It rejects the idea of equality for the same reason it rejects the ideas of unicorns and leprechauns, noting that human equality does not exist in any observable scientific, legal, material, intellectual, sexual, or spiritual form.
  8. The Alt Right is scientodific. It presumptively accepts the current conclusions of the scientific method (scientody), while understanding a) these conclusions are liable to future revision, b) that scientistry is susceptible to corruption, and c) that the so-called scientific consensus is not based on scientody, but democracy, and is therefore intrinsically unscientific.
  9. The Alt Right believes identity > culture > politics.
  10. The Alt Right is opposed to the rule or domination of any native ethnic group by another, particularly in the sovereign homelands of the dominated peoples. The Alt Right is opposed to any non-native ethnic group obtaining excessive influence in any society through nepotism, tribalism, or any other means.
  11. The Alt Right understands that diversity + proximity = war.
  12. The Alt Right doesn't care what you think of it.
  13. The Alt Right rejects international free trade and the free movement of peoples that free trade requires. The benefits of intranational free trade is not evidence for the benefits of international free trade.
  14. The Alt Right believes we must secure the existence of white people and a future for white children.
  15. The Alt Right does not believe in the general supremacy of any race, nation, people, or sub-species. Every race, nation, people, and human sub-species has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and possesses the sovereign right to dwell unmolested in the native culture it prefers.
  16. The Alt Right is a philosophy that values peace among the various nations of the world and opposes wars to impose the values of one nation upon another as well as efforts to exterminate individual nations through war, genocide, immigration, or genetic assimilation.
TL;DR: The Alt Right is a Western ideology that believes in science, history, reality, and the right of a genetic nation to exist and govern itself in its own interests.

The patron saint of conservatives, Russell Kirk, wrote: "The great line of demarcation in modern politics, Eric Voegelin used to point out, is not a division between liberals on one side and totalitarians on the other. No, on one side of that line are all those men and women who fancy that the temporal order is the only order, and that material needs are their only needs, and that they may do as they like with the human patrimony. On the other side of that line are all those people who recognize an enduring moral order in the universe, a constant human nature, and high duties toward the order spiritual and the order temporal."

This is no longer true, assuming it ever was. The great line of demarcation in modern politics is now a division between men and women who believe that they are ultimately defined by their momentary opinions and those who believe they are ultimately defined by their genetic heritage. The Alt Right understands that the former will always lose to the latter in the end, because the former is subject to change.

This is merely a very early draft. Discuss amongst yourselves.

And to think the media almost failed at sicking this on Trump.

I thought "Alt Right" was/were TOP conservatives.

The alt right's myopia about race will in the long run hurt it.

I do not care who you care to procreate with. if it is important to you to have a spouse of the same background as you, more power to you. To make it a political position is a problem. If you believe in the concept of preserving your race, go out and have six or seven kid (or more). If you don't bother to do that, don't complain that your identity is dying out. Who is to blame for that?

We live in a nation that has diversity of background, what the drive should be is to make one nation with assimilation to the culture. E pluribus unum. That does not mean no immigration, but it does mean controlled immigration.

We are not mere nationalists, we are a constitutional republic. The United States is founded on ideals of liberty and freedom, from the Enlightenment and Western Civilization. That means you teach youth to understand and love those principals and you live by them and to understand the role of the Constitution, which is intended to limit the power of government.

Any race can be an American. Most faiths can be American. Some ideologies are incompatible with it--Communists, Islamists, etc.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Do Jews count as white? Just wondering, this list seems to exclude them.

Methadras said...

Alt Right loses me at racism.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

This sort of thing is widely promoted and tied to Trump would hurt him far more than help him.

It is a shame because the emphasis on Western Civilization and culture is so important.

The racist twist to this takes away from that.

Sixty Grit said...

You keep using the word "racist", evi, that word does not mean what you think it means.

Michael Haz said...

Never fall for the left's attempts to define the right. Their hatred and bigotry seeps through their definition like a coffee stain does a white shirt.

What is Vox, anyway? Just a room full of self flagellating white boys who think everyone else is racist. They despise middle America, especially flyover country.

edutcher said...

Interesting manifesto.

I'll have to study on some of it, but a lot makes sense.

ricpic said...

The Alternative Right is COMMON SENSE!

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Racist: a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

I have to admit, my breed is superior to any Holstein or Angus. Don't even get me going about Limousin, they are dumber than a box of rocks.

I do not mind people having subjective feelings and biases because we all do. If you only want to date black girls you are racist, just like saying you only want to date white girls. That is not what I am talking about.

I believe a lot of stereotypes and our biases are driven by culture. I am absolutely think Western Civilization and the Enlightenment, along Judeo-Christian values are superior to all other cultures and in large part explain American Exceptionalism. A drive for education, work ethic and moral values is critical for the success of our nation. Our public schools seem hell bent on teaching alternative values.

My warning is the alt right embracing race pride as a policy and political philosophy is toxic to the other very valid points the alt right adopts.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

You don't think the Vox boys think they are superior to all of you and they don't have contempt for themselves and their Democrat coalition? They are self hating fuck nuts.

chickelit said...

Always check the manifest against what's actually delivered.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Chick, this manifest by Vox is intended to cause harm, but like all big lies there is an element of truth in it. I have heard some of these points on the margin of the Alt Right. I would caution against that part.

The biggest actual racists are Democrats. Always have been. They want their dependent supporters doing what they are told for some walking around money.

edutcher said...

Sounds like the Libertarians are afraid of some competition.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

"Sounds like the Libertarians are afraid of some competition."

Can you explain that?

edutcher said...

Intensity of response.

Another belief system to define the many who think of themselves as Conservative; the Libertarians thought they'd make it this time, but, as always, the brass ring eluded them.

PS I need to think about 14. A lot.

Trooper York said...

I think youse guys are confused.

Vox is the liberal blog that you are referring to in your comments.

Vox Day is the leader of the Rabid Puppies and a leader in the Alt-Right movement. He and Milo and some others are the intellectual heft of the organization.

I thought it would be a good idea to get an idea of how the Alt-right thinks of itself since Hillary is making a major speech attacking them today.

Trooper York said...

The self righteous preening about racism is getting old.

The racial dynamic has changed in a big way. Tribalism is the norm. It is the reality. You can say all you want that it is terrible but you just have your head in the sand. Black Lives Matters is now the norm. It is only going to get worse and worse.

The Alt-right has some fringe elements. But all in all I think they are on the right track.

Much more so than the Republican party. Which is coming to an end after this election in one way or another. The question is what comes next.

Trooper York said...

I have posted about Vox Day here many times before.

He leads a coalition of voters in the Hugo Awards to stop the trend to awarding affirmative action awards to protected classes. He is also the author of an excellent best selling book
"SJW's Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police."

On his blog he post many threads about political correctness, science fiction, politics and the Alt-right. If you want to learn what that movement is about you need to educate yourself from the horses mouth.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

To the extent the alt right is about promoting Western civilization, classical liberalism, free markets and liberty, I concur. These are ideals that could (and should) be adopted by all persons. They are not race dependent. But they are culturally dependent. And we are losing it through poor and actively contrary education and sell outs from all sides.

When alt right goes down the path of white supremacy, preservation of white people, discussions about Christian values without Judeo values mentioned...count me out. I do not want anything to do with that.

This is not self righteous preening about racism. I do not care about your subjective views on race. I know most people are biased about the topic and those who scream the loudest about it are usually the most hypocritical of all. But it is a loser strategy.

The biggest threat we face is this spreading poison of Islamists--especially in Europe. That is not primarily racial, but ideological. It is a similar threat we faced with Communists (who are also coming back in the guise of socialism).

John Rhys Davies nailed it years ago.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Here is Davies, standing up for the traditional old white man culture you are trying to defend, without being racist about it. And of course his critics call him a racist anyway.

Don't give the other side ammunition.

Trooper York said...

I have to disagree. We are not giving them ammunition. It is the same thing as saying not to talk about Muslims and what a horrible religion Islam is because that gives them a "recruiting tool." The preening self righteousness comes in an overwhelming wave in discussions about race. People are so afraid of being termed racist that they are ashamed of being white. When vulnerable college kids are attacked just for being white and told they have to renounce their "white privilege" then all concern for the tender sensibilities of the easily offended has to go out the window.

There are some parts of the Alt-right agenda I am not on board with like the whiff of Antisemitism that you catch in some of their comments. But I think they are on to something. Something that will become increasingly important whether or not Trump wins. I expect Hillary to go over the top with the white hate and the moral preening and her flying monkeys in the press to be all over it egging her on.

It will be very illuminating to hear her speech and listen to the reaction to it.

Trooper York said...

Currently Hillary is terming all Breitbart readers as Ku Klux Klan members. It is a featured story at Breitbart today.

It doesn't matter what you say or don't say. This is how Hillary and the SJW's and the media will label you. The conservatives have surrendered. There is not a dimes worth of difference between them these days.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

I concur people are deathly afraid of being labeled racist. And it is a tool of the left to control and steer the discussion.

No doubt the Alt Right is on to something. A lot of this is very valid. But that whiff of antisemtism you noticed is a problem.

You can actively defend the culture, as Mr. Davies very eloquently does. The great thing about his line of attack is it is completely defensible morally and ethically.

edutcher said...

For funsies, the Beast is speaking against the Alt-Right.

The enemy of my enemy, as they say.

Trooper York said...

That was the point of this post Ed.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

I hope Trump slams Hillary back about Sharia editing 9/11 truther assistant

And he can reference Robert Byrd to boot.

Amartel said...

Resisting politicized efforts to divide people by race is neither ostentatious nor preening. The Dems holler about racism because, at this point, that's all they've got. They're down to their First Principles. They've always been the party of race and dumb shits. But mainly race. Now they've gotten some dummies on the right to internalize their divide and conquer creed. When you talk of tribalism, you are making their racist wet dreams come true. Stop.

Trooper York said...

It's not a dream. It is a reality.

Cops are being shot down in the street. Criminals are looting CVS because they need to vent and "Have room to destroy."

Tens of thousands of convicted felons are being released so they can vote for Democrats.

You want to surrender to the social justice warriors and buy into their meme. Sorry. Not happening.

Amartel said...

You are just another sad pathetic social justice warrior.

Trooper York said...

You are just another cuck who makes excuses and doesn't want to rock the boat.

Amartel said...

Don't know what that means. Another incoherent response from the social justice warrior.
There is no excuse for social justice warriors. They are willing pawns who allow themselves to be moved about the board in exchange for a brief and illusory feeling of relevance.
