Advancing the Culture WarBeau Albrecht
Not long ago, I met with some of my fellow deplorables. For the first time, I got to see one of our vast subterranean bases. I was pretty jazzed about that! (Naturally, gratitude for permission to use these cavern complexes goes to our Vril-ya comrades way down under — mighty white and out of sight!) There was much on the agenda up for discussion, but I’ll just say that I’m very pleased with the reports of how rapidly our colony at Aldebaran is developing. I always knew that adding another Andromeda-class starship to our fleet would be a great investment that would alleviate logistical problems and pay off in the long run!
I was asked to make a brief speaking appearance. That’s not my greatest talent, which became especially evident when my specs fell off of my ugly mug while I was trying to read my prepared statement. I’ll present it here, a little more fleshed out and polished.
Which culture war issues should White Nationalists be engaging in, and which ones should we be avoiding?
Even in times like this, we can take heart in the fact that our ideas have been getting around, despite the best efforts to suppress them by many in high places. Although we’re not the ones carrying the Big Megaphone, it does count for something to have truth, sensibility, and justice on our side. On the other hand, time is not on our side, so presently it’s important to try for the greatest efficiency in reaching the public. Part of that includes fundamentals such as being relatable and tailoring the message to the audience. Another part is selecting the topics themselves.
What is necessary to focus on are subjects that will capture common citizens’ interests. For one matter, there is a place for dry debates and esoteric discussion, but it’s better saved for internal channels rather than external public outreach. What affects people’s day-to-day living and overall livelihood will get a lot more attention. Another thing to remember is that we should avoid subjects that will be unnecessarily divisive or otherwise turn off a significant fraction of the people we’re trying to reach. As long as we’re not diluting our message, we’re already controversial enough, so unnecessarily introducing further wedge issues is a bad idea.
To get into specifics regarding the cultural realm, religion is an example of an unnecessarily divisive topic. We all have our opinions about it, and for some it plays a major part in our lives. Still, we’ll have to accept the fact that there are others with very different ideas, and likely some strong opinions. Given this, explicitly theocratic measures would tend to make for a bad fit in any party platform.
Another topic best avoided is abortion. Note well, I’m not considering this on sectarian grounds, but in terms of basic decency. To Leftists, abortion is the neatest thing since sliced bread. On the other hand, it’s an abomination according to many of the people in the public we’re trying to reach. Curiously, I’ve seen opinions on our side that concur with the Leftist consensus. I know what the utilitarian arguments are about it. To me, such arguments conjure up the image of Winston Churchill grinning as he sucked a cigar and listened with glee to damage reports from the Dresden bombing raids. I don’t know what he said at the time, but it might not have been too far out of character for him to remark that the more children were burned to death down there, the fewer Germans they might have to fight in World War III.
Our stated goal is the peaceful separation of incompatible populations. That’s how we win, which has nothing in common with tactics the likes of which Britain’s greatest arsonist might have endorsed. Rather than supporting abortion, it’s better not to bring it up at all.
Another topic that’s come up on occasion, yet could use more attention, is the spread of the transsexual fad among children. What’s happened is clearly an artificial development, mainly the work of the usual constellation of Leftist institutions. It’s backed by the usual type of “civil rights” rhetoric. Disagreement is met with the typical sort of shrieking. Despite the familiar cultural Marxism script, this time it’s different. They’ve pushed too far, encouraging confused children to make life-altering choices contrary to their physiology. The results have been very damaging, and we’re only seeing the beginning of it. Moreover, the very idea is abhorrent to the ordinary public. It’s even too much cognitive dissonance for some liberals to handle. Simply put, being a man or a woman is a matter of biology, and making a wish won’t change that.
I was one of the early voices sounding the alarm on this catastrophe — in my case, back in January 2017 — and I saw the Dissident Right unite against it. Since then, the problem has continued to get worse, but we’re also seeing new signs of resistance lately. Mainstream conservatism has taken notice, and already there have been some legislative efforts to protect children from getting indoctrinated into this mass hysteria and permanently damaging their bodies. Again, our ideas are getting around. Sooner or later, the transsexual movement will collapse under a shower of lawsuits. The Right will have a very good chance of breaking its decades-long losing streak, as well as doing something good for the public. Until then, anything we can do to hasten this will be for the better.
Demographics is most obviously another significant topic. The first order of business is to challenge the idea that there’s something wrong with us acting in our collective self-interest. Nobody else is expected to observe such limitations; instead, they are encouraged to think and act collectively. This contradiction must be broken. When it is, all things will become possible. There’s no way to justify the usual double standard other than resorting to Leftist tautological hogwash.
Defending our culture is important, too. Whenever some overpaid drip in academia or the mainstream media trashes Western civilization, this needs to be answered, loud and clear. We’ve shrugged this stuff off for much too long. Tenacity matters; much of the reason for our present condition is that others have pushed us collectively, but we haven’t pushed back.
Then there’s the economic side of things. Although it’s not traditionally considered a cultural matter, one can’t deny that the well-being of a society will have deep implications for its way of life. To continue as a society, we need a strong middle class that is prosperous enough to be able to raise children. The subject of economics does come up a lot, but we could be doing more with it, especially in terms of public outreach. How are those glowing promises about free trade and the global economy doing today for the common people? I think we all know the answer to that one.
Finally, we need to address electronic surveillance and the loss of privacy. We’re under a blatantly unconstitutional surveillance state regime, but too many people out there don’t care. There’s an even worse development under discussion, which is the “cashless society” our friends in Davos have been so feverish about lately. It hardly needs saying, but if that turkey flies, it means your every purchase could be traced. If it’s tied to a Chinese-style social credit system, then that means you can lose access to your funds if you say the “wrong” thing. The way to head that off is to make the very idea of a cashless society as appealing as radioactive waste. We need to do this, or it will be the end of any remaining scraps of freedom. It’s that serious.

Beau, this is sage advise, and I couldn’t agree more with you in particular about the trans issue.
One reason so many people are viscerally against trans dogma (i.e., that men, women, boys, girls don’t exist objectively despite their having done so for the whole of history) is that it is glaringly false, yet they are told, “Believe what we tell you. Do not question it. We will punish you if you do.”
We should be leveraging this to our ends for all it’s worth, because it is analogous of another of their great lies (the one we are most concerned about): that race doesn’t exist objectively, either.
We need to be saying to other Whites who aren’t yet on board with us, if inimical groups lie about something as obvious as boys and girls and insist that we believe them, would they not also lie about other things having to do with fundamental features of life, truth, and identity?
And If they do so with no regard for how badly they harm vulnerable people–putting them on a path to almost certain tragedy (and they know it)–what makes you think they would then, apropos of race, suddenly become honest dealers with the best interests of all parties at heart?
As I see it, this issue is a gateway to race realism like few others.
Your every purchased would be tracked, and every unauthorized purchase would be punished.
I mostly tend to leave religion out of politics. My views are out there enough that I don’t need to invest religious fervor into my opinions on secular topics most of the time. But abortion is grotesque regardless of religion. The fact that so many people genuinely believe that it’s some ordained right to get as many elective abortions as they want staggers me. It’s evil. Yes probably more non-whites will be born. The demographic situation is so hopeless at this point, whites a minority in major cities, and the population is in danger of being killed by Russian nukes and experimental mRNA shots, that I know the game is perhaps already lost. Given all this, it costs us almost nothing to trigger the daylights out of wealthy white female liberals by banning abortion and lapping up their delicious tears and have people knowing that if theres one thing the being right wing stands for in america, what voting republican in 2022 means, its banning abortion to a maximal extent. Flay me alive if you disagree fellow counter-currents readers, but pro-abortion right-wingers just muddy the waters in what should be a clean mighty river.
Am I reading nihilism? Why should we go out of our way to ‘trigger’ our enemies through divisive and clownish arguments if the world is doomed?
Thank you, Leroy Patterson, that was my take exactly. Whenever I see that childish meme about “delicious tears” something in my brain squirms with embarrassed disgust.
Serious and contradictory matter.
Not engaging might be the path to irrelevance. Too much might be divisive.
The heavy losses on the cultural front have many explanations and they are usually avoided.
Instead of talking, listen. If anything they say is anti-White, make a disapproving noise. If anything they say is not anti-White, make an approving noise. If they say anything pro-White, vociferously agree and tell them how right they are. What makes people agree with you on the complicated stuff is their sense that you agree with them on the little stuff. Instead of arguing or selling our ideas, get them to identify with you. The process is : I’m White. You’re White. We’re White.
