The Moderate

The Moderate

The moderate is a conformist with no beliefs of his own. The future belongs to radicals.

The future belongs not to the moderate. The moderate is a coward with no true beliefs. The same “centrists” who are disgusted with Trump and call him racist would have believed in White racial superiority had they lived in the 19th century. This is because the moderate simply chooses the path of least resistance. His political beliefs are based on social acceptance, not on any sense of justice or deeply held conviction. This is all apparent if one simply asks him why he holds his beliefs. The moderate cannot give you a straight answer. He argues using purely negative reasoning. The reason he is “in the center,” he will tell you, is that he fears the extremes. That is, he fears real ideas. Having convictions is probably morally wrong, he says, and, at the very least, the implications are frightening.

The moderate reasons that we should be wary of fixing anything, lest we be wrong. He fears failure and greatness, finding comfort in mediocrity and the status quo. He is incapable of thinking abstractly. He is incapable of imagining a future which is different from his immediate experience. People often speak of wooing the moderate or the “normie” to our cause. It is true that some simply need to be shown the information (that information everyone here has seen but wasn’t supposed to), and will come over after being red pilled. However, the great moderate mass of America—that rootless, unthinking blob of conformists—can only be changed by a change in social pressures. This means a drastic and fundamental change in our institutions and our psychology. The changes that took place to transform the White European world from understanding the fundamental issues of race, gender, and the history and foundation of our civilization to denying all information, knowledge, and wisdom on these subjects needs to take place again, but only in reverse. Because he is a trend-follower and not a trend-setter, the moderate will only change his view after this is done. This means the form the future will take is up to the more ambitious.

America is becoming increasingly divided. The Left is extreme in its politics, and the Right is adapting to match. However, there are a large number of people not on either side, eagerly waiting for politics to become boring and unimportant again so that they can feel comfortable. After all, it is a difficult time to be a moderate. As American politics become more polarized, the moderate may be Left on an island in the middle of the political spectrum, in a position where he now has to defend his beliefs. Or worse, he could be forced to actually choose a side. This is the last thing he wants. He has taken every step possible to avoid having real convictions and views or to think critically about the options. He will only be at ease again when one side has prevailed and he can take his dignified place on the new political spectrum—the center.

The moderate is fundamentally a follower. He is an expression of the state of mind the current establishment wants to create—an essentially uninterested observer who only looks away from insignificant issues long enough to make sure that nothing important really happens. He fancies himself an independent thinker, unattached to the dogmas of both the Right and Left, but he thinks only within the boundaries proscribed by the globalist establishment. He, then, can never think of a future different from the present. He is afraid to imagine ideals or greatness, and in fact finds it offensive for anyone to do so. “It can’t be done” and “that’s not realistic” are his rallying cries.

The moderate is especially terrified of the great taboo of race. Of the establishment pillars he knows not to disturb, this is the one he is most afraid to touch. All the races are equal. He knows not to question that, and he knows that he should feel at least some shame for the actions of his White ancestors—at least enough that he feels obligated to share his country and resources with other races. Statistics about race are not to be researched or remembered, and, if brought up, are to be explained away by racism, “environmental factors,” or ignored. It’s plain to see that the only political importance of the moderate is the fact that he, and the many others like him, can vote and therefore the game of politics must take place within his zone of comfort—the Overton window.

It will be those with ideas and vision who will decide our future. The Left, despite its  many faults, has a vision for the future. Common world economic markets, multiculturalism, the dissolution of borders, the erasure of the White race, and the rest of the program are long-term, far-thinking goals, however repulsive they may be. The Right has been missing this ideal, this grand vision for many years. The Conservatives struggle to think beyond the next election cycle and to think of an issue more significant than tax cuts. This is where the Alt Right is sorely needed. We have a vision for the future. We have the will to create a civilization better than the current one, and even to transcend what is currently thought to be possible or realistic. It is these grand ideals of a White homeland, of a civilization that can articulate man’s relationship to nature, modernity, and the universe that will propel the Right forward.

Those willing to dream will determine the structure of the societies of the future. The moderate will only watch and conform.
