How To Survive the Apocalypse

Jean-Pierre Houël, The Storming of the Bastille, 1789.

1,097 words

There are times when the best course of action is to do absolutely nothing. This is one of those times. The events of the past three or four months need no recapitulation here. There is a level of madness seen throughout the West today that we have not seen since the French Revolution, a madness that is centered upon a complete inversion of reality. Truth cannot be spoken, and when truth cannot be spoken, no problem can be solved. In times such as ours, prudence and discipline are the foremost virtues. We are, indeed, “riding a tiger,” and it is best not to make of oneself a tasty meal for the tiger, but to allow the beast to consume our enemies instead.

Tempting as it may be, no one on the Dissident Right should even contemplate getting involved in a counter-demonstration or a street fracas with Antifa or BLM. Let the subhuman rioters attack with abandon the property and persons of the civic nationalists, corporate conservatives, and even those of their supporters on the Left. It is a delicious irony that the more BLM, Antifa, and their fellow travelers burn, loot, and rape, the more self-evident the truths become that the Dissident Right has been espousing for years.

Protect yourselves, your families, your loved ones, and friends. Remember, for white people, America is enemy territory. You do not have freedom of speech; you do not have freedom of assembly; you barely have freedom of religion; and the right to bear arms is hanging by a thread. If you have a concealed carry permit you should belong to one of the organizations that provide legal assistance, bail money, and insurance protection against civil and criminal penalties. Keep in mind that if an armed Negro breaks into your home and threatens at gunpoint to loot, rape, and murder you and your family, and you shoot the perpetrator in a perfectly justifiable act of self-defense, it is likely that you, not the home invader, will be indicted for multiple felonies.

Forget about organizing boycotts. Amazon’s profits aren’t going to be affected one iota if a group from the Dissident Right stops purchasing from the online Leviathan. Rather, accept the harsh reality of the situation and try to use it to your advantage. Let Amazon deliver to your doorstep the materials you need for the fight against globalism. To paraphrase Lenin, after the revolution, the oligarchs may discover that they have not only sold the rope by which they are hung, they may also have sold the lumber for the scaffolding and the nails by which the 13 steps to the gallows were assembled. By all means, do business with small white-owned and white-positive businesses as much as possible, but don’t feel guilty if you need to buy something from one of the evil giant retailers.

White positivity is becoming increasingly mainstream. One sees it in the most unexpected places — in the comments sections from various articles on Breitbart to conservative nationalist podcasts like Dr. Steve Turley. Normies are coming to our side. We need to be patient and allow them to discover us. Plato understood that the most lasting lessons learned are those when students believe that they have uncovered the truth on their own. Even a few Leftists are beginning to understand that feral Negroes do not distinguish between the daughters of woke and unwoke whites when they seek to satiate their lust and barbarism. Some will never get it; others will need to be robbed and raped several times before they reluctantly come to race realism.

It may sound heartless, but take it from an old guy. Once you get your affairs in order, sit back, relax, and enjoy the carnage. It’s rough seeing normie whites — even woke liberal whites and the AWFLs who love them — have crimes perpetrated against them by SADs (my new term: Savages of African Descent), but some lessons can only be learned by some the hard way.

I don’t really care if the Left burns down a Chase Manhattan branch or a Starbucks. Likewise, if Negroes burn down Negro small businesses, why should any white person care? My country domicile has just doubled in value, and I am being inundated by real estate agents wanting to buy my house for cash. Sorry, I’m not selling my quiet home in a riot-free zone. Rich white liberals and civic nationalists caused this problem, and they can suffer the consequences. Hey liberal, get back in that burning building and do some gentrification. What are you, a racist?

Events have been set in motion, and there is nothing that one individual — certainly nothing that one individual member of the Dissident Right — can do to affect the outcome. I think that the Left is going to discover the truth of the old maxim, to wit: If you sow the wind, you will likely reap the whirlwind.

Although he a feckless fool, Donald Trump accidentally does something right every now and then. It’s worth voting for him simply for the reason that he causes so much agony among the Left and the Republican establishment. I come into contact on a regular basis with many members of the academic Left, and they actually believe that Donald Trump has inalterably changed the United States into a fascist state run by white supremacists.

If only.

Until a few months ago, I thought that Trump would lose his reelection bid. Now I think he will win — not because of anything positive he has done — but because of the Left’s lack of self-control. And after Trump wins reelection, there will be an orgy of self-destruction among the Leftists. They may try and start an actual civil war. They’ve boxed themselves into a position that they may be unable to demobilize their African pets. What is it that the laissez-faire economists call it? Oh yeah, creative destruction. But in my Heimat, my homies call it schöpferische Zerstörung. Out with the bad old globalism; in with the good new ethnic nationalism.

Sit back, my friends, and enjoy the spectacle. This is going to be one apocalypse you won’t want to miss.

    Respectfully, I am not wholeheartedly sold that these recent conflagrations will be enough to spark consciousness in a broad enough sphere of white people that can organize for their own common good. I have spoken with my parents, and they have been remarkably open to discussing the kind of topics that fly around here, which is reassuring. However, my father, who hitched his cart to Trump rather ferociously, is struggling to process the ailments of mainstream political intercourse. He truly believes that America can “join hands back together” after all this blows over. Furthermore, my immediate peers do not inspire much confidence (although admittedly I can’t pretend to have an encompassing view of them, having always tended towards shyness), with a considerable margin showing patterns of behavior associated with left-wing “true believers.” Oh, but if every day the snail crawls up the well two inches, the rain washing him down one is only delaying a success he has rightfully earned…
    I will however admit my regret in occupying a mostly “watching-by-the-sidelines” role in this cause, although I am considering ways of contributing.

      I agree, while I appreciate the effort towards white pilling, the vast majority of people on the ground see it their way, or at least “understand” their behavior. People who ageee with us are in the extreme minority. Everyone wants to take a stand against white supremacy.

      I agree that this isn’t going to be enough, but, the thing to remember is, somewhere there is a line, a line, however impossibly far away that may be, but there is, beyond which any further humiliation and degradation becomes intolerable, for every human being, it exists, and it must even among the pathologically masochistic white race, and the liberal regime, with it’s nearly limitless power, and megalomania, won’t stop denigrating us now, or then, or ever, until it reaches that line, which, still, must exist, and lies somewhere out there, concealed in the vast precipices of the white collective mind, it simply can’t not exist, so it does. It’s both horrifying and hopeful, but this is just the beginning, they’re only getting started, the storm is still on the horizon, but it will come, and that we’re already seeing signs of awakening among ordinary Western whites is encouraging, because, even though it’s just a trickle, as the violence against them grows from a trickle into a raging torrent, so will the dissent. The march of liberal “progress” isn’t going to stop, and neither is the awakening. That’s why it’s implied that the apocalypse is yet “to come” and be survived, and not here already. That’ll help anyway, and at least there’s no way it’s going to be boring, regardless.
      PS. I don’t want to make the comment about this, but I couldn’t help but brag after such a “based” comment. So here it is: I’m a Marxist. Point: We’re not all bad, actually, I never
      met a real one that wasn’t “based.” You probably just never met one before… over.

    Well written and well reasoned. I couldn’t agree with you more. Opposing this wildfire is futile. It’s going to sweep over all that’s in its way. I’m not sure I see as much “white positivity” as you do, but I do see some here and there. I do see alot less reliance on the myth of the “good black.” I used to be a big cheerleader of small black businesses, but if they can’t save themselves from their own kind, what are we to do? 90% vote Democrat. 90% of blacks vote for the party that’s importing Mexicans as fast as it can who will ethnically cleanse black communities. Screw them.

    As for the Trump victory, you might be right. I certainly hope so. I just hope and pray we don’t lose the Senate and that maybe we pick up seats in the house. There has got to be some push back against this neo-Bolshevism soon, or there will soon be not much left to save.

    I see a Wisconsin State Senator, Tim Carpenter, a DEMOCRAT, got his ass kicked and beaten and pummeled by social justice warriors in Madison WI, while the cops stood by and did nothing as a monument (this one an abolitionist) was destroyed. Too bad he was only beaten. They should have killed him. Maybe next time.

    I remember Conservatism Inc satraps like Nikki Haley say Confederate monuments belong in a museum.

    What if we take them up on that?

    Open Confederate theme parks in Branson Missouri or Nashville Tennessee.

    Private property where normal families can enjoy history and a wholesome experience away from the rotting system around us.

    Quintilian, I agree with your article wholeheartedly except the part about Trump being a feckless fool. He must be in the dark about a lot of things but I hesitate to conclude that he’s incapable of turning on the light. No President since Andrew Johnson has been so opposed even to the point of periodic abandonment by members of his own party.Many of Trumps party would not stand with him when he called rioters thugs and murderers and called for police action.They were afraid to criticize BLM. Afraid it might make them seem racist.No other president in history, think about it, has faced the onslaught that this president has.Even his supporters criticize his tweets.I don’t give a damn what he tweets in retaliation to the lies his haters tweet about him.He’s usually right and the stupid things he’s said, well everyone says stupid things.It appears that his major mistakes have been his choices of employees, and you would think he would be very talented in that field.I’ve been concerned with this because the Presidency is not “The Apprentice”. He needs true friends as his administrators and I hope he can find some.Is Trump a shill for the “elite” I don’t know. I hope not.But I would never have guessed that a man of his social stature and wealth,associating with all the big wigs of the world for years, could be so Jew-unwise.

      Trump is aware of how things work. I think this is the best he can do. Washington DC is a cesspool and he had to get his staff from the mainstream Republican Party or people approved by them. Any attempt to go outside of that circle would be thwarted. The same group maintains power by always being in the upper-tier management. Any new policy is either derailed outright or adjusted with their approval. Trump may have made this whole process more obvious and I appreciate him for that.

    Tim Murdock gave the same advice to all the White Rabbits in his last podcast: “Just grill and chill.”

      Yes, many talk about how “desperate” the Left is. I disagree. They use desperation, irrationality, and rage to accomplish their task. These are their metier, their gas. It’s working. They’re kicking ass. This is how they always do it. If they win, we are in for a very bad time. IF they lose, well race relations are going to be worse. Other changes: an exodus to Red America and many Universities going belly up since people realize how corrupt they are.

      Their “desperation”, their willingness to put it all on the line is their strength. And if they fail this time, they will try again and again unless and until we can separate from them.

        I am not arguing that the Left is desperate. Far from it. What I am arguing is that the Left is undisciplined, which is a very different thing. Already we see evidence that the Left is eating its own. Remember, the perpetrators of the French Revolution were eventually destroyed by the revolutionary apparatus they themselves established. The oligarchs of the globalist system are the arrogant bastards they have always been and are not desperate persons, but they have established an economic system that ultimately subverts itself. Consumerism and never-ending economic growth are impossible in a system in which 0% employment is a goal. The Left is not desperate; it is monomaniacally suicidal. And in this case, I am all for assisted suicide.

    Great essay. Stay focused on white families. The enemy hates strong white families. Let’s give them what they hate ! The America we knew, or maybe imagined, is gone (or never was). Let the savages run wild and their white apologists run scared. Here’s to the fall!

    This is a very good article and I am gratified that so far I see no comments asserting that “Die Juden sind unser Unglück.” A monomaniacal obsession is hardly the prism through which to perceive and analyze complex social phenomena. For one, scan a couple dozen photos of the “protesters” and compose a rough ratio of white females in them. Or, as a capsule, study the photo in this article — BTW written by a J and published in a J-run news platform that’s a major force on our side that drudge no longer is.
    But back to the article. I have one point of contention: the author’s gloating about living in the countryside and leaving the cities to the mob. It was our capital mistake to leave the cities to the mob already in the 70s. Without at least one big city where Whites free of this culture’s sick brainwash are the majority, we have no schwerpunkt, no redoubt from which political influence and logistic and cultural support emanates to the surrounding country, no possibility of showing what attainments and quality of life we are capable of if free of the shackles of the surrounding dystopia.

    I agree that WN economic boycotts of anti White companies like Amazon is a huge waste of time – a drop in the bucket to them. But there are other types of activism that can work, has worked and will work.

    What is needed is to use some of the very effective tactics recommended and used by Saul Alynsky and other Lib Leftist activists/radicals in “Rules for Radicals”.

    One keep point in Alynsky’s “Rules for Radicals” is to make the conflict ….


    Identify a specific enemies, traitors and work to make the whole conflict come down on them personally. Successful Nationalists in Central and Eastern Europe like Hungary’s Victor Urban did this – making former Hungarian born J George Soros the #1 Enemy working to subvert and destroy Hungary. The Victor Orban Hungarian nationalists put up large numbers of street posters of George Soros looking old and ugly with the meme that Soros was the Evil Emperor from Star Wars – this campaign worked, Orban’s Nationalists won majority power and they keep on winning.

    Now here in the USA, we can identify some/one exclusive #1 enemy traitor.

    My pick is Doug McMillion the CEO of Walmart that recently announced a bit PR Campaign giving $100 million to BlackLivesMatter associated groups. Doug McMillon is a great bad guy. He gives himself $24 million in annual compensation, yet pays his American workers very low wages and he/Walmart has outsourced all their pharmaceutical manufacturing to Communist China!

    He’s the perfect propaganda enemy/traitor – lives in a castle in Arkansas, yet funds $100 million to BlackLIESManner.

    There are so many Saul Alinsky type things we can do to this *$&@ rich traitor. Bus out the worst Coronavirus Black homeless people to his castle, demand they be let in to share his luxury after all….

    BlackLivesMatter – or don’t they mister $24 million a year CEO Doug McMillon?
