Where Next?Jonathan Sawyer
Where do decent white folks go from here, when it’s all but too late?
What is their life going to be like when the demographic scales are tipped and the usual pathways to success and respect are blocked by the unforgiving, power-thirsty trolls drunk on woke?
What distant lands or even yet what nearby nations will open their arms to discontents from abroad in search of what they once had but now seem to have forever lost?
Is there an early America somewhere else where white folks can go without prying, progressive eyes and distrusting voices monitoring every move and word?
Maybe to Canada or Mexico, but up there wokish restraints are many as they become less and less receptive to displaced renegades who yearn for the freedoms of another time. All the while, south of the border, the mestizos and forgotten masses seek refuge in our diversified country where money flows unabated in spite of the whites’ deep longing to be in less judgmental places where families can flourish in traditional ways and former greatness is celebrated without sowing doubt and hatred in fragile minds.
It’s very hard indeed to find a comforting place, somewhere else, to put down roots and start life afresh in times of uncertainty. But sooner or later white folks will have to choose fight or flight just as war-displaced millions have had to choose between devastation or new, promising lands. At worst, if you try and stay complacent or passive as the world around you comes apart, you wind up being scorned or simply irrelevant. In due time, brushing aside meritocracy’s outcomes and barriers, the darker-skinned ones will rise to the top of the leadership pyramid by sheer numbers alone. But in the meantime, if the white cultivated elite should withdraw from the unfair struggle and move away, to more promising lands, there would be a sense of loss that would ripple throughout government and finance. How does one replace intelligence and creativity except with people of lesser merit?
When the creative nexus of a country disappears, its wealth is not spread as fairly or evenly as planned. Complex problems will go partially solved or grow even more complicated. Castro-infected Cuba let its best and brightest flee abroad, leaving the struggling many behind. Socialism expropriated the leftovers of a once-thriving society. Poverty and ideology became the dual tenets of survival in a land where prosperity took root elsewhere.
Europe’s great minds gave our founders inspirational guidance a long time ago. This cradle of freedom was also the source of wars and persecution of wayward sects that defied royal norms and Roman Catholic rituals. From the religious sanctuary of Holland, very brave souls risked the oceanic crossing in poorly equipped vessels sailing to the unknown world far away. A belief in providential destiny gave them hope for better times; God and raw courage sustained their efforts to build a new Jerusalem far from secular strife and rejection.
The puritanical fervor of Mayflower voyagers was soon replaced by the mercantile adventurers who saw the New World as terra incognita to be conquered and developed. . . or as some now say — exploited for selfish aims. European powers spread over these virgin lands and brought with them a lust for precious metals and expanded territorial grandeur. Agriculture, stone-based architecture, legal codes and laws, structured cities, religious faiths combined with missionary zeal, and military forts followed in their wake.
The ingenuity of pioneers and the quest for agrarian wealth that lay beyond the European-like communities of the East gave rise to human caravans that trekked across arid expanses to the Pacific coast. Over time a new life, with its flaws and assets, took form; land-hungry settlers pushed aside nomadic indigenous tribes and challenged foreign empires that were seeking lebensraum in war-prone territories that yielded no immediate wealth.
These were days of past glory and unrestricted growth. Intrinsic American values were given life by freethinkers who rejected religious and authoritarian rule. They replaced royalty with republican governance, Eastern imperial conformity with individualistic assertiveness, and state religions with multiple Protestant sects.
The concept of unalienable rights was conceived by disciples of Locke, Grotius, Montesquieu, and other enlightened minds of European descent. The Western World, as we know it today, devolved from the genius of Caucasian thought and imagination. Other societies saw the individual as either an obedient servant or a subject whose needs were subservient to the betterment and preservation of the whole.
The non-violent protests of minorities have been successful only in Anglo-Saxon nations or their colonial possessions. Tolerance for dissent is a redeeming characteristic of the so-called white mentality. Black civil rights demonstrations could never have succeeded in authoritarian nations such as Stalinist Russia, communist China, Islamic Saudi Arabia, or other autocracies that do not tolerate public disruption or political protests. Gandhi’s fasting and opposition to the Raj or British colonial rule in India would have been unsuccessful in Mao’s China; in South Africa, the English were anti-apartheid activists and clashed with the Boers over its abolition. Without individual rights, societal change is effected only through violent revolution.
We need to carefully ask and examine these questions: where can we go, rejected white pluralities in a country we helped to build and which now finds our presence to be an encumbrance? How could this truly be? Being white is not a cultural defect, but skin pigmentation. Millions of immigrants from Caucasian countries in post-Civil War years have never raised their hand to minorities nor been guilty of discrimination of any sort. Others come from countries where blacks or Hispanics don’t exist. Teenagers in Western states have little if any contact with minorities as determined by governmental fiat. But, according to woke logic, they are potentially favored because their skin is lighter than other less-privileged groups. “Systemic racism” and “White supremacy” are attributes based on suppositions, not a fact-based reality. At a glance, our guilt is perceptual and our foreheads are branded with the mark of Cain. If we protest, if we take our case to the courts and streets, will it alter the nature of a socialist-centered nation that revises history to fit its agenda? This is a current reality we must embrace. We have only one choice: we must protest from within; we must use the disruptive techniques and strategies of those who oppose our very existence. Our unity is a sign of strength; the repressed discontent of many white advocates, however, is no more than a silent confirmation of our weakness and demise. We now realize there are no welcoming oases left where a better life can begin anew.
Unrestricted and poorly vetted immigration will lead to greater diversity and the eventual tribalization of America. As the races mingle indiscriminately, our national sense of identity will decline. To clarify matters, we should look to the southern hemisphere where our future mirror image lies: Brazil with its variegated population, indigenous tribes, massive corruption, rampant deforestation, and lack of technological mastery beckons us to imitate its profligate ways. The Anglo-Saxon-puritanical goals of inner and social discipline, the sacrificial demands of creating a more efficient and profitable society, the willingness to postpone momentary satisfaction for future security, the concept of individual responsibility, and the deep pride in group accomplishments. . . all these characteristics will fade as white dominance gives way to less demanding cultures.
It is interesting and even ironic that in the aftermath of the American Civil War, a large group of Confederates (circa 20,000), not wishing to live under Northern rule during the Reconstruction years, immigrated to Brazil to start their lives anew in a country that was sympathetic to their cause and where slavery was still legal. Even today there are descendants of these Confederados living in Brazil who honor their distant past culture.
Which way do we turn, how do we react, and most importantly, do we have viable options? Without action, without commitment, the future will not be ours but theirs. Like the Greeks and Egyptians before us, our civilization and its Anglo-Saxon values will slowly dissipate into mediocrity and become a historical curiosity in the centuries to come.

I say the time for running away is over. We’ve been doing that since the 1960s, abandoning one neighborhood after another. You know what? If we had unity of purpose – all Whites holding fast together – anything would be possible. As of right now, developing this unity of purpose is our number one job.
I had an interesting lunch with 3 other ladies this past weekend; a highly specialized dermatologist from Florida and two very successful real estate agents from Colorado. What are the odds that all 4 of us are race realists? These are not “daily” friends of mine who know my opinions, one I just met for the first time at lunch. Every one of us spoke in depth and very freely about the problem, and in earshot of other tables. Each had stories of standing our ground with others, too. The time to fight seems to be at our doorstep and I think more of “us” are ready than we might have guessed.
I tend to agree with this.
It takes about 20% of the total white population in the U.S. to get things going.
“Anglo-Saxon values will slowly dissipate into mediocrity and become a historical curiosity in the centuries to come.”
That’s assuming there will be anything as characteristically white as ‘historical curiosity’.
According to Wikipedia, “many of the Confederados are of mixed race.” They look more Brazilian than Anglo in the pictures I saw.
OK, Debbie Downer, this article raises fear and despair, but has no answer or solution. Yuck.
There is nowhere left to run to because the entire world is operating under AntiWhiteism. It is very much time to simply say no to anything and everything which is AntiWhite. Period.
The most effective community of our people is using the lexicon and verbiage of NoWhiteGuilt.org because it works. Start working for White Wellbeing every day and we will regain our destiny. The time of running away from our victimizers is over.
Some White Guy, I agree.
If we use good pro-White language we will do things that could not have been done by generations before us, generations that were hobbled by anti-White language and the traps built into it.
If we try to hobble along with “standard” anti-White language, every time we elevate a leader to accomplish something practical we will hear them celebrate their rise in status by imitating the language and fatal assumptions of the anti-White ruling class. We will hear them say “I’m no racist but,” and we will realize too late that everything we invested in before we got the language right was a waste.
@Some White Guy – You start your comment to this thoughtful, well-written and sobering article with a flippant anti-White slur, “Debbie Downer.” Next, you proceed to plug another website and trot out your magic-words “lexicon” that will somehow make it all better. Truly another “victory” by an acolyte — or do you prefer “apostle” — of your self-aggrandizing Fearless Leader. Although he regularly crows about his “success” in the increasing use of the term anti-White, in reality it was coined and popularized by the truly legendary Bob Whitaker, and made widespread by the BUGS activists: “anti-racism is code word for anti-White.” In more recent history, of course, by the monumentally successful White Rabbit/Tim Murdoch.
I live in L.A, a County of 12 million, and am quite shy, and cannot find one other person who thinks like me. I have two roommates who are the direct opposite of me, so I am a clam at ‘home’. We live together because we lived in the same apartment house which got sold to a Mexican ‘real estate cartel’ — what else can you call it? — and raised our rents double, so we found this lovely house nearby and it fit our needs. However, if I could find 3 other roommates to move in here — 4 bedrooms — it would make a great combo safe-house and meeting place. This is exactly the sort of situations we need — we need to get together. to talk and begin planning a real future, and then taking this ‘concept’ on the road into each state. I view the White Nationalists that post here as mostly young, single and adrift. I could be wrong. Any ideas along this line? Anyone out there in L.A.? Seriously, I couldn’t throw out my roommates, but any four-bed, 3-bath house could be a great beginning to draw our drifters together and get organized.
You are not alone, but be careful that you do not end up with a combination of FBI and ADL agents as housemates, followed by a stint in special government housing with no housemates whatsoever. Try reaching out to [email protected] (the “Way of the World” guy) as there are a lot of us lonely Whites out there and he is trying to connect people. And if you have a good way to screen for the enemy, please share.
There’s no alternative to withdrawing to defensible spaces within the US and holding them. It won’t be easy, but it can be done.
I agree with all the comments above. This article is too defeatist. It states: “But sooner or later white folks will have to choose fight or flight”. Yet it goes on to focus on the “flight”. What happened to the “fight”?
This goes against the European heroic spirit. We fight even when we know we will face certain death –and we did with Honour, not of old age somewhere in Brazil.
Sorry, “and we die”, not and we did (typing on a tablet in a rush)
I don’t know about that. Whites are already on the way out and didn’t put up any fight.
Illegal aliens have been flooding into our homeland at the rate of well over 100,000 per month. Now, let’s say it was 100,000 per month, hence, 100,000 divided by 30 days = 3,333 per day, divided by 24 hours = 138 every hour. INVASION needs to b our #1 focus fore we CANNOT b allowed to not b a super majority in a homeland our ancestors settled, created, built, worked, bled, died for & bequeathed it to us descendants.
No one in their right mind gives away their homeland.
Like I said before, unlimited biological warfare is the last, and only option.
To be honest, I think the idea of retreating to “defensible spaces” within the USA is a fool’s errand. Simply put, without a sovereign space, we have no future. The time has come to begin planning for kith and kin.
Retrenchment may have been possible several decades ago, perhaps before President Eisenhower sent the 101st Airborne to Little Rock to force American White race realists – at bayonet point – to accept blacks into their schools and businesses. But we now live in a country in which a millennium of Anglo political tradition has been completely upended, indeed, inverted, with the rule of local control giving way to centralized national government and unaccountable bureaucracy.
Combined with the consolidation of leftist power in education, media, finance, and business, there is not a whole lot of hope. What exactly is “defensible” when people are fired from their jobs (and thus lose their ability to support themselves) for voicing opinions that were deemed truisms a decade or so ago, but no longer adhere to the reigning dogma? When the federal government imports millions of foreigners from the Third World, often purposely dumping them in White communities to upset ethnic harmony? When every local zoning ordinance or housing standard is invalidated as racist from on high? When every profession and even science itself is utterly perverted into a handmaiden for ideology? When basic banking, communications, and transportation is subject to ideological purity?
As for our heritage of fighting to the last man, I will simply note that My People have also explored the seas and stars, and have subdued the wilds of several continents, constantly striving to expand their civilization to the northern reaches of Europa, through Greenland, the Americas, and Australia. If we have to build again, we will build again. That too is our heritage.
I have one question:
Are we whites incapable of guerilla warfare?
I always have this question in the back of my head: What would have happened, if … would have gone 150% guerilla warfare?
… = Germany occupied in the 1920 and after 1945
Americans in the 1960
And what if we would obey the letter of the law while screwing it as much as possible?
So, in Little Rock: Yes, the blacks were to be allowed into the school, but what if they had been herded into one room without any teacher and white students?
And if the 101st would have forced a teacher to be in the room, he just reads a book, ignores the blacks and the same happens if the blacks are forced into the same classroom as the whites.
Unlimited biological warfare is the only option.
Get European dual citizenship, if you can
Relocate to a European-American enclave
Avoid African-Americans (AAA?)
Point #2 is not as easy as it sounds.
The northern half of the U.S. is best on paper – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_emigration#/media/File:European_Ancestry_Large.svg. However, save for third string towns like Boise or Spokane, it also contains the worst of the woke cities – Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, and Chicago.
Meanwhile, the southern half of the U.S., stretching from the eastern suburbs of San Diego to South Carolina, contains the most self aware Whites, but it also “La Raza” and the “Black Belt.” Pick your poison I suppose. I agree with David Cole on this one – https://www.takimag.com/article/spicy-white-and-urban-blight/ – LA > Atlanta.
We really need to be connecting with our brothers and sisters in Europe: Why should they be importing millions of Africans when their own people are in peril? Granted, the politics of the EU are disastrous, but individual nations still have a decent amount of autonomy and perhaps seeing America go down will be instructive.
True, they shouldn’t be doing that. However, the people aren’t in charge over there any more than they are here. Managed democracy is how it rolls there too, and the political class is full of the same types of horribles that are familiar to us.
Move to the the more patriotic and higher percentage european areas of your country/state/region. Or at the very least move away from the worst part of your country.
If you can’t move, be a part of an economic community that serves our people.
Prepare to be mobile. There will eventually be an area that is majority awakened europeans.
Persuade the right kind of people to understand what is going on.
I think we may lose parts of our countries in the short term (either to China or in Europe it could be to ‘refugees’ or in USA it could be to hispanics).
That is an okay price to pay if its what creates the incentive to consolidate another part of the country.
As more is taken from us, it will become easier to rationalise that we have our own space.
Things may need to get worse for whites to wake up. But we can start to create the spaces and communities to welcome them once they have woken up.
A beautifully written and sobering account of the true history of our past glory, with thoughtful and realistic questions of where do we go from here. It is so refreshing to read a TRUE historical reckoning of the United States of America without the anti-White, “idiocracy” interpretation that colors and infects literally everything now. Definitely an article that I will widely share and keep for future reference. I found it uplifting despite its thesis.
