The Alt-Right Rises to Challenge Liberalism

We’re challenging the liberal world order now, folks. In fact, we’re the biggest challenger that world liberalism has seen since the fall of communism:

“But it is the underlying ideology of the Alt-Right, rather than its controversial policy positions, that is truly sinister. Alt-Right thought is based on white nationalism and anti-Americanism. The Alt-Right holds, in essence, that all men are not created equal, and that as racial equality has displaced white dominance, America has declined and no longer merits the allegiance of its white citizens. …

In short, this new strain of reactionary thought goes beyond the garden-variety racial prejudice of yore — which certainly was bad enough — to a root-and-branch rejection of American 21st century values. The Alt-Right represents the first new philosophical competitor to liberalism, broadly defined, since the fall of Communism. …”

I can’t say that I disagree.

I don’t agree with any aspect of liberalism whether it is the origin myth of the “State of Nature” or “Original Position,” its radical individualism, the blank slate, the notion that universal human rights exist like stars or planets, “freedom” and “equality” as the twin poles of politics, or social contracts that result in proposition nations.

Why should I believe in racial equality? I don’t see any compelling evidence that racial equality exists. If I had a good reason to believe that the races are exactly the same in every respect, I would readily admit it. It would make my life much easier. I don’t see it. That’s why I don’t believe it. It’s not because I hate or wish to harm anyone.

Every system of measurement known to man points to the conclusion that the human races are not equal in their genius or capacity to maintain a civilization. I don’t think it is my fault that this is so. I think the system we live under now, which has squandered trillions of dollars based on the false premise of human equality, is spitting in the wind.

I think it is a bald faced lie to say that blacks are suffering from systemic racism and that I am the beneficiary of white privilege. I’m the one who is discriminated against! I’m the one who is denounced from the commanding heights of the media and academia for being the villain of world history! Sorry, but if the Klan or some other pro-White group was secretly running the United States, wouldn’t we know about it?

Liberalism is built on an edifice of lies. We’re just pointing out what is increasingly obvious.
