Making Sense of White American Misery

Well, it looks like the left is finally beginning to realize 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.

  1. Oh but it is jews. Its always them. Whenever the World turns bad for unexplained reasons its them. They own and operate the media and when they can’t find a good scapegoat to blame their greed and stupidity on, you know for sure its them. Their fake money monopoly gives them the wealth to buy out businesses and squeeze out innovation. They are a dead weight that holds down the world like a millstone. Every economic downturn since the Great Depression is their stupid greed destroying industry after industry. They buy factories and send them to where slave labor is legal, and then bankrupt both countries when no one in America has the money to buy anything anymore. They’re not a boogeyman. Their greed is well known. They’re shameless about how cheap and greedy they are, they are the misfortune of all who do not attack or expel them.

      I hardly deny that Jews are disproportionately wealthy, nor am I blind to certain shenanigans of theirs.

      That being said, I maintain that blaming Jews is a cop-out. Or do you seriously believe that the Koch brothers and Waltons aren’t avaricious, amoral bastards who would gladly sell your grandmother just to make yet more profit?

      I have no problem with taking Jewish elites to task; don’t let white gentiles off the hook though.

    Yeah, but WASP/Northern Euro Americans have close to zero group cohesion. On a scale of 0-100 NW Euro-Americans are 0 or 1 and non-Hasidic Askenazim would, say, be something around 30 or 40 to attempt a cautious estimate (Of course the degree of cohesion within the “ecosystem” as a whole would vary according to the issue). Given the high profile of Haim Saban, we know there is a non-Ashkenazic presence within the essentailly Ashenazi Jewish-American power elite complex (For want of anything better to call it) along with inevitable mischlings and Goy fellow-travellers . Jews have a lot of ethnocentric big money players, zealots and activists while NW Euros have none who have any money or influence. We know there once were a lot of ethnocentric WASPs, so the current state of affairs likely has at least something to do with the rise of Jewish media and political [in the FDR adminstration] power beginning in the 1930s and Jewish power in academia mostly post-WWII. For the pre-WWII period, see KMAC’s review of The ‘Jewish Threat’: Anti-Semitic Politics of the U.S. Army byJoseph W. Bendersky and RHE’s “Paul Gottfried hates “WASP” people” at his blog (In the latter, especially the highly entertaining parts about Kingman Brewster, Sr.).

    Given the nature of the zeitgeist/cultural hegemony it’s too much grief for a white billionaire to even be a moderate civic nationalist like renegade billionaire Donald Trump. Of course Trump’s actual business practices were as anti-national as anyone else’s-he had to play within the rules of the existing system. Billionaire Peter Thiel was apparently bullied into backing off from his support for NUMBERS USA. It’s really funny that SPLC’s “big money man” for American civic nationalism for the past thirty years is a small town physician in MIchigan. My guess is all this has more to do with the nature of post-WWII American imperial system than it has to do with Jews.
