As long time readers of Occident Invicta are no doubt aware, we subscribe to traditional conservatism, and thus do not hold most liberal ideals in high esteem. However, there are many aspects of traditional conservatism that most people neglect, especially as they pertain to economics, imperialism, and anti-war sentiment. I figured that now would be the time to elaborate on what we mean by “traditional conservative.”
When the average person thinks of a “conservative” today, he envisions a parochial, anti-taxation, Israel worshipping jingoist who wants to bomb every Muslim country into oblivion. If he’s a young millennial such as myself, he associates conservatism with the costly imperialism and hubris that characterized George Bush Jr’s administration.
Throughout my own life, I was trapped within a binary. On the one hand, there were the fruity, self-flagellating, guilt mongering liberals. On the right side of the aisle, the conservative scene was pervaded by religious nuttery, war mongering neocons, and corporate lackeys. I could never conceive that there were pro-white, cultural conservatives who also denounced imperialism and corporate avarice. For the longest time, the fact that there were alternatives to Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter eluded me.
Courtesy of the internet, I finally discovered these alternatives. For a period of time, I enjoyed perusing the old articles of the late Sam Francis. A staunch paleoconservative (another way of saying traditional conservative), Francis lambasted multiculturalism, unfettered immigration, as well as assaults on the West’s identity. Yet he also attacked corporations for their greed and lack of loyalty, and connected the tragedy of 9/11 to U.S. imperialism in terms that would make Obama’s former reverend Jeremiah Wright proud. Other prominent traditional conservatives include Pat Buchanan, who has cited outsourcing as one of the reasons for the demise of the Republican Party. He has also spoken out against the saber rattling against Iran. Additional traditional conservatives include Kevin MacDonald, Stephen Sniegoski, as well as many others.
Having described what traditional conservatism looks like, I will now present our manifesto:
- We believe in significantly curtailing non-white, non-Western immigration. However, we also believe that the various non-white nations of the world should enjoy full sovereignty and self-determination, free of predatory neoliberalism and U.S. invasions.
- We look at Marxism and Communism askance, and believe in Western Capitalism. However, we support traditional Capitalism, as envisioned by Adam Smith. We do not support tax breaks for the wealthy, outsourcing, or other manifestations of greed. We recognize that a vibrant middle class is a fundamental prerequisite of a healthy society, and decry soaring income inequality.
- Unlike cowardly mainstream conservatives, we unapologetically endorse the white identity of the West. However, we also believe in de jure equality under the law (with a few modifications for immigration policy) and reject blatant racism (which, as Dota has pointed out, is distinguishable from a healthy xenophobia).
- We believe in patriarchy, as it has produced and sustained the greatest civilizations in the history of mankind. However, we believe in a benevolent, reciprocal patriarchy, and we frown upon the blatant violence and mistreatment visited upon women in various parts of the world.
- Even though we are critical of the increasing degradation of Western society and believe that its denizens must be held to higher standards, we are simultaneously critical of the growing erosion of civil liberties, as exemplified by the Edward Snowden affair.
In so many words, we are pro-white, pro-Western, and pro-male. However, contrary to the claims of our enemies, this does not mean that we want to slaughter or forcibly expel non-whites, relegate women to the sole role of baby machines, or restore archaic monarchies. We seek to conserve the positive elements of Western civilization, while simultaneously extirpating the pernicious trends that have been undermining the West over the past few decades.
