Have American whites lost their nationhood and then had it resurrected – by leftists? It would not be the first time a nation unknowingly transformed from a natural, organic nation into one whose existence is somewhat artificial and, therefore, whose very nature has changed. Rather like a science fiction tale of a human falling asleep as flesh and blood and waking up as an android.
No doubt some native American tribes, for whom membership used to require no paperwork and whose self-identity was as natural and flowing as the rivers around them now find themselves struggling to maintain a meaningful existence in a different world. They must keep computer files for members and follow practices previously unheard of just to maintain some semblance of continuity for their nation.
At a time when the United States was over 90% white, one could still accurately say that, by and large, America was a nation founded by whites and composed of whites. Back then, a white American’s nationality could be defined by his U.S. citizenship. He could convincingly equate the two in most cases. Of course this is not so anymore. These days, “American” can mean anything and (as I’ve stated before) therefore it means nothing.
Thanks to leftist policies, which are specifically designed to marginalize and displace whites, America no longer exists as a nation. It has been reduced to nothing more than a specific territory ruled by an elite political class. Former white “Americans” have either lost any true sense of nationhood (their former patriotism having become a hollow fantasy) or else they have embraced their white heritage as their nation. The former have no nation. The latter now belong to a new nation – created indirectly by leftists.
Proud white Americans, being members of a new nation, may find themselves confused. On the one hand, they feel deeply rooted in their historical past. On the other hand, that past – though lived by their genetic forebears – was the past of different nations. In the meantime, the rules have changed. Things that used to be assumed must now be argued. Things that used to be safe must now be defended. Things that used to be sacred are now openly questioned. Things that used to be profane are now considered sacred. When faced with disruptions such as these, a people will typically take measures to preserve the culture they have inherited from their former nations. Unfortunately, those measures sometimes prove themselves to be as disruptive as the challenges that provoked them.
These are dangerous times for white peoples wherever they are. They are, of course, dangerous because of the widespread violence, hate propaganda and genocidal government policies directed against us – but they are also dangerous because of the ways we sometimes find ourselves reacting to such persecution. Unable to maintain the innocence of yesteryear, some of us may slide into mentalities that are not helpful. During his speech, at the most recent Amren conference, Sam Dickson urged caution lest we become like the caricatures our enemies use to portray us. Let us take his advice to heart. With one hand, let us defend our cultures, genetic legacies, language etc. but let the other hand steady us so that we remain normal, natural people. We cannot control the events that brought about our status as new nations – but we can control the ways we adapt to it. We can nurture our new nations in such a way that the artificiality of it takes on the qualities of a seamless transition still rooted in our past but well suited to forge ahead on our own terms.
