Video of the Day:
Nietzsche’s Historical Vitalism

186 words

In the latest episode of Guide to Kulchur, Greg Johnson joins Fróði Midjord for a conversation on Nietzsche’s second essay in the Untimely Meditations, On the Uses and Disadvantages of History for Life (1874). Topics include civilizational decline, nihilism, vitalism, Christianity, and Nietzsche’s critique of Hegel’s philosophy of history.

The episode is archived on BitChute (video) and Spreaker (audio only). Guide to Kulchur streams live on YouTube and DLive every Tuesday and most Sundays. Two episodes per month are devoted to First Principles, focusing on books that are central to understanding a Right-wing worldview.

    I love Candace. I just feel so bad for her that she feels so let down by her fellow Blacks. She’s such an outlier (over 2 SD above the mean for sure) in both IQ and levels of psychopathy that she just can’t understand why Blacks would behave like this: she thinks it’s father’s absence and not genes 😭

      I still have romantic ideas of black and white nationalist cooperation, not with all blacks, but some, blacks such as Owens, Tom Sowell and Clarence Thomas, who have brilliant minds and are more or less aware of the predicament they’re in, who realize that they’re not like most of their kind and should be made to lead their kind to a better destiny, a freedom that can only come from living in ones own country, free from multicultural, multiracial blood sport, that turns nations into arenas, pitting race against race until one succumbs – or both. Resist the urge to antagonize those black masses who behave aggressively, stupidly or selfishly, in what we consider to be an “un-white” way, and realize that our interests are mutual, that as blacks deserve the freedom to assert their identities, so do whites, and let us focus instead on our mutual jailers, the Jews who force us to be together, who force us to fight over space, culture, resources, who rudely inject whiteness into black life and blackness into white life. The blacks hold no unconditional love for the Jews. Don’t let the Judaized blacks speak for all of blackness, just as we don’t let Judaized whites speak for all of whiteness, and don’t let Judaized women speak for all womanhood.

        There is a measure of truth in your words, but only that. Why would conservative blacks ever support white nationalism?

        I think we might – just might – be able to work with some of the more extreme (but non-looter) BLM types, the ones who really believe their own hysteric PC falsehoods about “systemic racism” and “white privilege”, to further the idea of “white racist separation”: ie, that they would be much happier in their left-progressive multiracial utopia (as they imagine it would be … lol!) if only the nasty white supremacists (along with a bunch of conservatives) would all leave to form their own country. We could also work with many progtard whites on this. They would like to be rid of us as much as we would be rid of them. If we ever do achieve peaceful separation and an ethnostate, this is how it will be done, via convincing our political antagonists that the best way to avoid civil war, a war we on the white Right might very well win (even though, in terms of devastation, we’ll all lose), is peaceful ideo-racial separation and secession (which, in fact, it is).

        [For the record, I’m sceptical we will win our ethnostate in this way. I think the most peaceful way we’ll achieve it is via long-term agitation combined with white nationalist physical relocation, ingathering, metapolitical development, successful in-state white secessionist candidate elections, and civil militia/paramilitary organization, and then a declaration of independence at a time when the FedGov and nation are in extreme crisis.]

        But non-white nationalist conservatives will be the LAST people to support ethnostatism. As I keep saying here at CC, most prowhite whites are also conservatives. Conservatives, including non-racist ones, will be the backbone of any secessionist movement with real political standing. I know many conservatives who are non-racist but can’t stand living around progtards, and do support conservative ingathering and secessionism. My belief is that after another couple of worsening decades, such non-racist types will be amenable to more open racial solidarity appeals. But for the moment they see ideology, not ‘color’.

        The black conservatives you mention would not support white nationalism because the country will only drift to the far Left once a white ethnostate has been established. Indeed, mainstream establishment conservatives fear white nationalism in part for the same reason: we leave, and the GOP dies.

    I always thought Nietzsche’s claim that Christianity was brought down by its commitment to truth was bizarre. The church threatened to burn Galileo for speaking truth and fought every scientific discovery along the way. But they were trying to prove Christianity was true and, since it isn’t, failed. OK.

    But WHY were they obsessed with proving Christianity true? Because white people demand truth. White people are the one group that is capable of putting truth above authority. Christianity was trying to cater to this need in white people. Did Nietzsche ever put it that way?

    White people got tired of the hypocrisy and contradictions and either became real Christians (therefore effectively anti-white) or lost their faith. How do you reconcile Luke 14:26 -“If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.”- with trad family values? Traditionalists think we can and should go back to the hypocritical phase. I don’t think that will work. Whites need a pro-white religion. Christianity is inherently universalist and demands its adherents put belief in words above blood.

    Nietzsche says we shouldn’t be so concerned with truth. I don’t think that will work against a competent enemy. If you demand people believe things that you can’t prove or forget things that actually happened you open yourself up to being discredited by a competent enemy. We have to embrace the truth. That is our one advantage against our enemies. We have to meet Socrates’s challenge and not just throw up our hands and say the emergence of a Socrates meant the end is nigh.
