A Breakthrough Year

2015 will go down in the history of the American Racial Right as a banner year: we finally began making good on the advice Alex Kurtagic articulated so well for our movement in his 2011 NPI speech, “Masters of the Universe.” His core message was that status, power and emotion matter more to our success or failure than do facts and reason.

Sure, much of the breakthrough this year has been due to Donald Trump, a man and a force that is implicitly White, not explicitly so. However, it’s vital to understand that very positive signs were developing in 2014 and early 2015 from within our movement, well before Trump’s campaign announcement this June. And even in regard to Trump, to quote a commenter at Chateau Heartiste, “Trump isn’t Trump. He’s Ron Paul too. The truth is trying to come out like a rat gnawing its way out of a snake that tried to eat it, gnawing its way to the light.”

In fact, though the discussion provokes controversy on our side, especially among our Old Guard, the increasing political radicalization of some Game websites like Chateau Heartiste was one of those signs of youthful optimism in the air back in 2014. This New Right intersection on sex-and-race has only begun to receive the extensive examination it deserves, but here I will just note that we are not a movement originating in slave morality, comforting the meek with notions that everyone’s sexual value and potential are equal. In any case, the most powerful message in Game is not fatalistic at all — rather, it’s that any man can improve himself and his relationships by using Game to become less meek. In the recent past, our movement has been absolutely desperate for confident men. To me, it’s a measure of how extreme that desperation became, how stuck we were in our own echo chamber, that spokesmen as radical as the Chateau proprietors are on race, and as inspiring as they are to our bolder young men, should be seen by many as tainted.
