Every Phoenix Needs Its AshesMark Gullick
I have believed for some time that the only way the white West can be saved is disaster. I appreciate that we seem to be in the middle of one, but I will be more specific.
The West, from the eastern borders of Finland and the Visegrád 4 (V4) countries to the Californian coast, needs financial collapse in order to continue. (I am not counting Alaska as being more westerly, incidentally, as The Simpsons informed we British long ago that, along with Hawaii, it is one of the “freak states.”)
I am not an economist, but then neither are economists. If the magic money well suddenly runs dry (possibly meaning hyperinflation, economic stagnation, mass unemployment, and the resultant social breakdown) an awful lot of expensively woke projects will go to the wall, not least the “Green New Deal” in the USA. Also, should the EU welfare system break down, for example, then fewer unskilled Muslims will choose Lampedusa or Crete for their next family holiday, no matter how enticing the NGO brochure looks.
Also, and this largely concerns America, no reparations, I’m afraid. But you will have 40 acres each, because there will be plenty of land left by white flight. The mule? Well, you will have to arrange that. (Without whitey.) So, a sudden collapse will mean automatic savings, even if it is of money no one has to begin with.
Now, my prognosis of the necessity of international, bi-continental bankruptcy might not convince you of my economic credentials, but the white West as it stands will die, and although it will die in its sleep, it will not die peacefully. If it is to be reborn, then it must accept that every phoenix needs its ashes. And, if there is some sort of civil war coming (which seems likely) or international war coming (which seems even more likely), we may do well to turn to another war from the decade that largely got us into this mess.
A famous quote from the Vietnam War is attributed to an unnamed US Army officer and was made to Associated Press journalist Peter Arnett. Exact versions differ, but after the remorseless American shelling of the Viet Cong village of Bên Tre, the officer remarked that “it was necessary to destroy the village to save it.” Sadly, the same applies to the West, and the collapse is likely to be brought about by its leaders. I hope they can ride the tiger.
To turn our attention to other animals, George Orwell famously wrote in his 1946 essay The Lion and the Unicorn that “England is a family with the wrong members in control.” He was not referring to the Royal Family, whose ultimate patriarch and penultimate patriot recently passed away, leaving only his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, as the last member of Britain’s Royal Family who genuinely loves her country. No, Orwell was — I believe — on to the existence of the deep state a long time before the term was used. And the existence and function of the deep state, as with international communism, is not confined to nation-states, those entities so hated by the globalists in the EU and beyond. Like Pascal’s strange sphere (and definition of God), the center of the deep state is everywhere, the circumference nowhere. America is not the focus here, but in passing, and with Orwell’s sentence in mind, that confederation is looking increasingly like The Addams Family with the wrong members in control. Or even the Manson family.
The future of the white West in Europe is beginning to look to its geographical center. Led by Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, the bullish and most fiercely nationalistic of the leaders of the V4, this emerging bloc may have essentially set in motion the slow, grinding gears of European white secession. Hungary long ago opened its borders to encourage Germans who had had enough of ex-Stasi comrade Merkel and her determination to import the Third World into a country that once yearned for lebensraum. There were many takers. When your Chancellor states publicly that immigration has “no theoretical limit,” grappling with the Hungarian language may seem preferable to living in pandemonium.
On that subject, and in passing, when my own adopted country of Costa Rica was asked to take in 5,000 Syrian refugees, the government offered up to the UN what is called in British legal Latin a nolle prosequi — a disinclination to proceed. There was some grumbling from the UN, but Costa Rica politely explained that this is a Catholic country and Muslims wouldn’t like it here. (I wonder if it was also a coded message to the West that, if they hadn’t bombed Syria, there wouldn’t be all these Mohammedan refugees in the first place.) Costa Rica is not a militaristic country, as evinced by the fact that it has had no standing army since 1949 after its bloody civil war. I digress, but the country’s Muslim population is 0.01% and they are all in the capital, San José, 170 kilometers from my town. Both these figures are pleasing to mine eye, as is the fact that when the few Muslims there asked the capital’s municipality for permission to build a mosque, the request was once again politely declined. Imagine that happening in Bonn, or Bruges, or Birmingham. The Muslim call to prayer was described by Barack Hussein Obama as the most beautiful of sounds. I find it one of the ugliest purely for its implications. It is unlikely I will ever hear it drowning out the Angelus bells here.
In Latin America, this refusal to accommodate negative social capital merely thumbs a nose at the UN. In the EU, the story is very different. The V4 — Hungary, Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia — have all been intimidated, traduced, and given the full Nazification process by the unelected gauleiters of the EU. Germany intimidating Poland. How do they have the bloody nerve? The Jews may have been the cover stars of World War 2 victimhood, but a little investigation shows the atrocities the Germans visited on the Poles. And Poland is indicative of something else the rest of the West would do well to remember. World War 2 was not the Allies versus the Nazis. It was the Allies versus the Germans, who voted the Nazis into power. In a sane world, Germany would not now exist and we would all have German servants. Imagine how shiny your shoes would be. You never saw the Gestapo in scuffed old trainers. Hans, you can clean that car again and do it properly this time. Lotte, where is my dinner? Instead, Merkel is continuing the war on the West she began when a fresh-faced commissar.
So, could we see white flight from European nations to the V4? The temptations must be strong on both sides; that of the decent, white Europeans who are tired of the fact that their daughters can’t leave the house unaccompanied, their local councils are gradually falling to Islamic parties, and there is a de facto social credit system in place designed to provide covering fire for Islamisation by punishing dissent.
The other beneficiaries may be the V4 countries themselves, who stand to gain economically from such a migration. After all, this would most likely be the reverse of the situation Donald Trump accurately described when he said that Mexico wasn’t exactly sending its best across the US border. An influx of economically viable, can-do, high-IQ Dutch, Germans, Belgians, Scandinavians, and so on might put the V4 countries’ economies on steroids. Racial mixing at the right end of the bell curve worked for the founding of America, no?
Finally, an economic overload followed by complete societal collapse would necessitate a reconstruction process if the West were to be able to clamber back into the ring. And it hardly bears pointing out that, when it came to rebuilding economies and even cities, it would not be Somalis, imams, and rappers who would be doing the heavy lifting. No, that would be the white man’s burden 2.0.
Not every pile of ashes produces its attendant phoenix. Detroit hasn’t. Nor has Zimbabwe, Venezuela, or Haiti. One would hope that the West would be made of more robust human capital.
That remains to be seen, however, and the phoenix may be summoned a good deal sooner than we think.

While I agree that the ashes are indeed coming, I am not onboard with the idea that any solution lies in whites fleeing land that they once held in order to form redoubts somewhere else. There isn’t any honor or salvation to be found in retreating from victorious conquerors, just a temporary reprieve at best.
I have always found expatriots, particularly those who choose to relocate for political reasons, to be the most contemptible of parasites. What is to be held up as virtuous in men too weak or cowardly to fight for the territory and ideals of their forebears, who instead run to foreign shores and depend on the tolerance of an alien host culture? These V4 countries, despite being quite admirable in their stand against Globohomo, have nothing to offer me as an American. The blood of my ancestors lies in this soil, not the old world, and I’d much rather fight here to carve out a place where my people can thrive. In short, this is our land and if we are to rise as a phoenix, let the ashes be made from the works of our enemies.
Honestly, the worst thing that could happen to the “diversity” is for whites to exit the field. The entire system is propped up by whites.
I’m a straight, white, male, gun owner. The system and my government hate everything about me and want my people to go extinct. As far as the virtue of becoming an expat, I’m reminded of a quote from a survivor of a ship that was sunk rather quickly in the Pacific during WWII. He was asked if he received an order to abandon ship, he replied “I didn’t abandon the ship, the ship abandoned me.”
It may be that the USA sees a trickle of micro-secessions which, if they link arms, may redistribute the ‘talent’ to the advantage of the white man. My piece was Eurocentric, as noted, but I don’t see the advantage of soil if your neighbours don’t cherish it. If whites congregated in ethnically concentrated areas, of course, the black rule over America would soon be at an end.
In the USA, we’ve had lots of white flight since the 1960s. It hasn’t done anything to slow the tide, of course. There are those who propose more of the same. I say we need to stand up and start pushing back.
May I ask in what field you have your PhD?
Certainly. Philosophy, from Sussex University in England.
Thank you. It is interesting (to me) how most prowhite (race-realist or white nationalist) intellectuals seem to be psychologists, philosophers or historians. Perhaps the occasional classicist, too, and of course the rare non-Boasian anthropologist from the “old days” (which I personally define as pre-1960s). Not many literature scholars, sociologists, economists, or theologians. Not sure what conclusion if any to draw from these observations.
I believe we are headed into what I have long thought of as a “transcontinental civil war” between the woke and the awakened, progressives and patriots, across all of Europa. I intuited this as far back as the 80s. I remember living in LA with an old college buddy when the Berlin Wall fell. We were in a nightclub in Westwood the next day, and somehow ended up hanging out with several other white guys, tourists, a couple of West Germans and a couple of New Zealanders. That little fraternity pretty much spanned the European globe! I was already deeply racially aware, though less knowledgeable than today. I distinctly recall thinking then how much more I had in common with these “foreigners” (granted, who all spoke English – though my pal and I could understand the Germans far better than the Kiwis!) than the various nonwhite Americans (blacks and other races, mostly Orientals) also present in the club.
So why shouldn’t a racialist American be expected to develop a closer friendship with a racialist European than with a progressive American? From there it was a very short step to my developing a lifelong concern for the state of white nationalism everywhere in Europe (and the Anglosphere). We’re all one race, and thus, in an age of “colossalism” on a shrinking planet, we’re all in this together. And now with truly globalized communications, and universally common racial threats, who should be surprised if white patriots from one nation discover their deep ties of blood and interest with white patriots from other nations? Or that hip hop street activists in Europe should mimic the memes and behaviors of their racial similars in America? The rapid adoption in 2020 of Black Lives Matter themes amongst the global African diaspora testifies to the globalization of the America’s (and South Africa’s) racial troubles.
War is coming, everywhere. Whether it will be precipitated by, or instead cause, economic collapse is unclear, but also ultimately irrelevant. White patriots know what’s coming; who the enemies are; and who’s to blame. Their task is to prepare themselves to prevail.
I don’t care how high IQ they are, Western European libtards and multicultists are not welcome in my particular corner of the East.
In America, white liberals migrating to Texas are the preponderant force in that state’s blueward march. We cannot allow such a thing to happen to Eastern Europe.
Second that. When non-whites start ruckus in our countries, we have a clear view of aliens to punish for abusing our hospitality. White traitors can blend in more easily and subvert our defenses. Besides, I don’t want any right-wing evangelicals and other heretics spreading their ideas in my (at least nominally) catholic country. Likewise I don’t want the City of London (or New York) relocate into our lands so they can infect us with the same disease that eats away the West. I won’t even delve into the issue of national spirit and temperament between various white ethnicities. Ukrainian migration is already creating demographic and economic challenges for Poland (the former somewhat tamed by intermarriage).
Westerners should have only a mental precipice behind their backs. Either fight back or plunge to your death/scatter in the wind. To quote one of the heroes of Costa Concordia disaster: “Vada a bordo, cazzo!” Get back on board and fight your way to the bridge if you have to. There is still time before that ship gets obliterated on the rocks. Even if you fail to avert the catastrophe, you have a duty to stay back until you safely evacuate the rest and salvage most important pieces of your heritage to save it from savages.
The idea of white general strike is enticing, but the system is still able to promise a good life for its drones. Until the illusion crashes, there is little hope for mass opt-out. Instead of fleeing, it’s time to prepare as much people as possible for the imminent breakdown.
I didn’t know Counter-Currents lets jewish authors publish on its site.
If you are referring to me, it may interest you to know that I was born in Stoke Newington Jewish Orthodox Hospital, but only because it was the nearest hospital with maternity facilities and my father had a motorcycle and sidecar and couldn’t travel further. Other than that, I am the proprietor of a rather handsome foreskin, so I am not quite sure what your point is. Neither, I strongly suspect, do you. Now be quiet. The grown-ups are trying to talk.
He has a point, this is:
In a sane world, Germany would not now exist and we would all have German servants. Imagine how shiny your shoes would be. You never saw the Gestapo in scuffed old trainers. Hans, you can clean that car again and do it properly this time. Lotte, where is my dinner?
100% kike rabulistic!
Exactly. I read that and thought-‘who is this idiot and why is he here’..
Whatever injustices the Germans visited upon the Poles, Czechs and other Slavs, it is a little known fact that the injustices they in turn visited upon the Germans were a million times worse.
Knowing what kind of text-walls you post here, I assume that by the “million times worse injustices” you mean letting them live, instead of wiping out their nation. One step further from the anti-natalist cause.
It is very depressing when a CC comments stream takes this kind of direction.
Reading the book Hellstorm by Thomas Goodrich, finding out what incomparable suffering the Germans had to endure, was what finally convinced me to transition to anti-natalism. If you have not read it, perhaps you should, but do so with great caution. Reading it was the most traumatic experience I’ve ever been through.
You could always try to reply to my long comments, which the overwhelming majority of commenters here seem disinclined to do.
Simple folks: white flight and make white babies. That is the simple survival strategy. The hordes will destroy themselves with their incompetence. Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake…
Yes, there will be a collapse, it goes without saying in Zionist hellholes. But it will not be like Phoenix etc. No, it will be endless civil war Middle East-style.
There will be White states and White (independent) areas, but they will be surrounded by Enemy (enemies). The arena has been ready a long time, the Zionist Master is just planning the exact details.
It will be Whites against all others: Muslims, Blacks, Asians, Pervo Squad, you name it. And the money will be miraculously found to help “the oppressed”, the famous Minorities.
Yes, there will be areas that will maintain White Status, but it will be like an eternal Syria with bombing of this and bombing of that, ad infinitum. Try build a civilization on that.
No, my friends, the fight, the battle is here, right now, today, and it is fought now. In fact, an all-in war would be preferable than this eternal civil war projected on all White Countries.
And in any case, please mention the Enemy. We all know who it is, there is no Conspiracy, quite the opposite, they have declared war on us openly, with no shame. Please let us not take any prisoners, ever.
The Phoenix here is an ugly black bird feeding the ashes of liberty to her hungry little Dindoonuffin mouths back home in Chiraq. Any ashes still burning as embers are dropped from the air like birdshit onto white cars and white people.
I disagree regarding your comment about the Queen of England.
She never said anything regarding the grooming gangs.
And her son considers himself a defender of faiths (when he becomes king), while his mother is known as defender of THE faith (yes, she said nothing so there will be no difference to her son.)
Autisticus Spasticus – Thank you for your comment.
Yes, Hungary helps white people. But only a few. They could do better.
To give you a hint:
There is a joke in Germany (can be used in all countries and with all rulers. The first time I heard it, it was with Hitler and Göring, then it was Honecker and Ulbricht etc)
Merkel and Spahn are flying over Germany.
Merkel says: If I throw this EUR 500 down, then one German will be happy.
Spahn says: If I throw two EUR 200 down, then two Germans will be happy.
Then the pilot says: And if I throw you two out of the plane without parachutes, then 80 million Germans will be happy.
(Ok, according to an article in the Sueddeutsche there are 81 million people in Germany and 20,8 million have a foreigner background, so there are only 60,2 million Germans left in Germany. In 1973 address of then chancellor Willy Brandt he talked of 2,5 million foreigners in Germany. So, no replacement to be seen, go on.)
“An influx of economically viable, can-do, high-IQ Dutch, Germans, Belgians, Scandinavians, and so on might put the V4 countries’ economies on steroids.”
Ah, so importing Germans some of whom will be migrating solely to seek a safe place to drive their Mercedes convertibles, will super charge Poland? After these folks let Merkle import all the 3rd worlders now they want to find a “clean place” to live. Good to know that replacing the Poles will have such beneficial effects.
Why is the only thing you hear from Poland: Mimimi?
I’m not sure what evidence there is that The Queen really loves Britain. The country has gone down the toilet on her watch, and she’s never done or said anything to suggest that this worries her.
