Peter Pan-Europeanism

via traditionalRight

There is a considerable amount of literature out there on the New/Alt-Right. The internet and a few successful publishers spawned by the movement have made a huge impact on our ability to have resources for people to find. It has been a largely idea-based movement ever since AlternativeRight.com was started in 2010. Over time these ideas have developed and matured to the point where people start mixing and mashing them, putting together a rough vision for what an ideal society might look like, as racial consciousness has taken center stage.

Being racially conscious allows us to have honest discussions about how people interact, develop, and organize themselves. People, as we have rediscovered for ourselves, are less malleable than the Earth around us. And largely, our role has been to clearly and uncompromisingly define who “we” are. Things like White identity, remembrance of our forefathers who were instrumental in creating the great stories and myths of our civilization. This harkening back to European identity appeals to our nostalgia for a time where an all-White society was taken for granted. This, of course, leads to visions of a future society in which that could be possible again.

Enter Pan-Europeanism.

To preface, I have always loved thinking about the possibilities of a society like the one a Pan-Europeanist worldview could create. Really, any society that has White identity at its core should be unanimously preferred over any of the alternatives we as a people have been forced to endure. But as always, at the end of any red pill conversation or internal debate there comes many difficult questions: What do we do with these new understandings? Where should we be headed? What should I be doing to advance these ideas beyond myself?

And, I think, Pan-Europeanism provides many with a placeholder for these questions. In an ideal world, the type of society we would like to see might resemble the Pan-European vision.

But has the red pill taught us nothing? There is no such thing as an ideal world, and we have to start thinking and acting with reality in mind.

2015 was a huge year for the Alt-Right–thank you, Donald Trump–and now suddenly our ideas are getting little bit of mainstream traction. We need to ramp up our focus on honing and critiquing our own movement, and that includes our vision for the future.

Dreaming of a pan-European empire alone isn’t enough to make it a viable goal. It will require a massive amount of work and even greater cultural programming. It is based on many assumptions about how the world will react to whatever the future brings. We don’t even know with reasonable certainty if many of our people will survive to see a future nation-state with White identity at its core. I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but Britain, Sweden, and Germany might be lost. Does a Pan-European empire sound great? Yes. Is it also pie-in-the-sky? Without a doubt.

This wasn’t an issue a year ago. It wasn’t even really a major topic at the forefront of debate within the movement. Pan-Europeanism and religion may be the most divisive items of controversy for the movement in 2016. It is an issue now because as I pointed out, we are at a point where we need to cull and critique our movement into a plan of action. We have brilliantly laid out the aesthetics of what we want society to reflect, but just as the paleo-conservative movement in the ’60s/’70s, we have so far failed to put these theories into anything more than an aesthetic and rhetorical critique of the world in which we live.

In order for us to continue to advance towards a racially-conscious agenda, we must put more energy into making it real-world applicable. For those of us who are Americans, we need to appeal to the American mythos. While we share a European heritage, we have our own American spirit of pioneering and adventure that makes us distinctly unique from native Europeans. The Alt-Right for the most part dismisses anything to do with America, because “lol duh failed experiment haha.”

With that attitude, we are ignoring a valuable piece of positive propaganda for our people to rally around. Even if America has become a cesspool, we still have the American legend and myth that people can, even if just barely, relate to. White Americans have always had a sort of chip-on-their-shoulder attitude, and if the events of the past year are any indication, are much more racially aware than we may have realized.

The Pan-European idea simply isn’t the best vision for Americans to adopt. It is based on the assumption Europe even survives the rapefugee invasion that is projected to add at least another million fighting-age males to the horde.

We as Americans have a lot to work on ourselves as well. We have grown too trusting of the nation-state and its ability to provide for its people. As of 2015, many have begun to question this very issue. The first questions are ones of loyalty. We need to help redirect loyalty not to the state, but to a people. Not to sports teams, but family. Not to instant gratification, but to history.

People can continue to salivate over the prospect of Pan-Europeanism. But if we truly want to draw more Americans into our camp, we need to appeal to things they can relate to. We can’t slap the European aesthetic on ourselves and call ourselves Europeans. Just as proud Italians don’t want to become Germans, or French, I don’t think Americans should be so quick to lose their loyalty to their own American identity.

Pan-Europeanism sounds great, and has a place in its ability to inspire those of us who long for the civilizations of old. But now that it is apparent that reality is catching up to us, we must be careful not to get stuck in Neverland.
