At Unz.com there’s a long but very educational piece , of a very politically incorrect nature. It’s about ‘White racialism’, or more properly, I think, about Whites’ lost ethnocentrism. I don’t mean to ascribe this meaning to Unz’s piece, but really when we speak of ‘racialism’ these days, often what is meant, in a White context, is Whites’ consciousness of themselves as White, and of their differences from other ethnicities or races. It also includes, by implication, a loyalty to one’s own kindred. We know who we are, ideally, (we certainly used to know) and we know where we fit in this world and where we don’t.
And now that it’s ”not OK to be White” and it’s not allowed — in fact it’s dangerous to say “All Lives Matter” much less to say the same of White lives, we probably inhibit ourselves from expressing confidence in who we are, and who we could be if only we were freed from the shackles of political correctness.
It is a long read, as Unz’s essays usually are, but it is informative. I was aware of many of the people Unz writes of in the piece, except for E.A. Ross. I wonder why we have never heard much about him?
I have read works by most of the others he includes in the piece. I’ve read Madison Grant, Lothrop Stoddard, Carleton Putnam, Carleton Coon, Wilmot Robertson, — and Boas, while studying Anthropology in college, so I’ve heard the politically correct lies via Boas’ teachings.
The comments on this kind of article are almost always depressing, with the attitude some ‘respectable’ people take towards anyone who is a realist, who sees things as they are, no rose-colored glasses or denialism allowed.
One thing that I noticed is that Anglo-Saxon Americans were at the forefront of this movement, trying to inform and put facts out there in the public sphere. Why are there no such voices being allowed to examine such subjects? Because no dissenting voices, no contradictions to the narrative are to be heard or read. Whoever can break through that PC barrier and say something to challenge the narrative will be disparaged, ridiculed, and marginalized.
And I wonder if the people who were born into this politically correct echo chamber realize that most people, the vast majority of people, North and South, East and West, held the same opinions as those called the ‘r-word’ today? Do people realize that if they had been born back in those days when people were more of a similar mind, and could speak freely, they would have been one of those politically incorrect people who are so despised now. The past is truly another country, and they did ‘do things differently there.’
They were free in that “other country”. Say what you will (and some people hate the past, or hate what they’ve been told it was) but people were freer.
