what we on the alt right have known all along: life for white people
isn’t all peaches and “privilege.” On account of a major spike in
suicides among middle-aged whites, many progressives have gotten the
memo that the economy hasn’t been too kind to white Americans either.
Due to such economic distress, the white male death rate has risen –
even as their counterparts in other majority white countries
increasingly live longer. American exceptionalism strikes again, it seems.
Even though I agree that economic inequality necessarily engenders a
certain sense of despondency, I don’t think it’s an entirely sufficient
explanation. After all, various other economically struggling
demographics have not experienced similar epidemics. Of course, I’m sure
SJWs would insist that privileged white men simply can’t cope with the
hardships of life compared to more battle-hardened “POC.”
My take is that a couple of factors are at play. For starters,
compared to other whites, white Americans are much more atomized and
radically individualistic; there’s a far greater sense of anomie than is
normal in other industrialized societies. It also goes without saying
that white Americans are less communal than Latinos and Asians, who
place a higher premium on group identities. Even blacks, despite high
illegitimacy rates, are more collectivist than whites. I suspect that
when you’re aging and financially strapped, having to sink or swim
completely on your own can seem unbearable.
This sink or swim feeling is only compounded by the whole bootstrap
myth, which asserts that any failure in life is entirely your own fault.
In many ways, it adds insult to injury; not only are these struggling
whites broke and miserable, but our culture in so many ways tells them
that they deserve to suffer. Since whites are far more likely to
subscribe to bootstrap libertarianism than other groups, growing numbers
seem unable to handle the misery and humiliation any longer.
Shit like this is why I have been so critical of American
pathologies lately. Not only does American exceptionalism lend credence
to open borders, multiculturalism, and other lunacies, but now it’s
driving white people to suicide. At some point, we need to acknowledge
that extreme individualism and unfettered capitalism deserve much of the
blame for white America’s deterioration; it’s not the Joos who are
pressuring these besieged men to kill themselves. I sometimes feel
like those of us on the alt right get so caught up attacking external
threats that we neglect to tend to white peoples’ internal wounds.
Just to be clear, by no means should we ignore enemies of our people.
Nevertheless, given that the alt right openly espouses a pro-white
ideology, I think we have a responsibility to at least try to find a
solution to alleviate white American pain. Given our low birthrates, we
can ill afford to lose more whites to self-inflicted death.
