If you’re reading this, I assume you’re very “red-pilled”. I also assume you care about making the world a better place. We need to meet people where they are, however. If your friend is in a dangerous drug addiction they can’t go straight to having white babies and raising them peacefully. There has to be a progression. In the same vein, if your society is profoundly sick you have to introduce marginal improvements to get to something healthy.
That can be immensely frustrating when you’re more aware than the average person. We desperately need to change our ways, and we need to do it quickly. I empathize with those who call for acceleration and “radical extremism”. We need that feeling of urgency and purpose. It’s real. But before we can change the policies of the government, we need to change the attitudes of our people. We need to develop a strong and responsible group of people who can assume the State’s power and use it in the best way possible.
If you’re hanging out with your friends and some of them might not be completely on board with your politics yet, you need to embrace that boundary. Ask questions, don’t get confrontational, they will learn with time if they have a curious soul and they care about your friendship. There’s a caveat here, which is that I assume the other person is actually curious and that the relationship is otherwise enjoyable. Don’t spend more time around enemies (people you can’t talk with) than you need to.
There’s also the possibility of not being intense enough. If your best friend is about to throw himself off a bridge and you just stand next to him all relaxed, you’ve got a problem. In times of emergency, you get as serious and active as the situation warrants. When you are aware of problems in society, you have a responsibility to your fellows. I want to recognize that.
I invite everyone to check their intensity and measure it against your standards. Am I doing what is best for my people, myself and my future children by acting this way? That’s what I ask myself. I want us to win, and I believe great courage, empathy and reason will be necessary.
Best of luck in the Culture War.
We can only act in the present moment, but our consciousness should not be limited to it. We live in a historical context, and our actions are informed by the past. This can be a great asset if the context we are currently in obeys the same rules as the one we used to be in.
Let me give you an example. Let’s say your mother was clinically insane and literally treated you like a dog, only feeding you if you got on your back and barked. Let’s say you got away from your mother and are now an adult in the wider world. If you feel hungry, would it make sense, as a free adult, to get on the floor and pretend to be a large, hairless dog? It wouldn’t make sense. If you didn’t examine your new environment and compare it to your history, it would be very difficult to change that habit and get new, updated and healthier ones.
I don’t believe anyone reading this ever experienced something so extreme, but the principle is the same. Our present situation is different from our past and our history. In some ways, it can be similar and you would not want to change your habits and attitude. That is why the study of history, both personal and collective is important to acting productively in the present.
We must learn where we came from, to understand where we are now so we can effectively go forward to the future we wish to see. Let’s make 2018 a year of introspection and deep study, that we may direct our movement and ourselves in the best and most successful direction so far.
Happy New Year.
A boundary is a limit placed on behaviour. It is meant to protect the one who establishes the boundary. Boundaries are necessary to civilized life, they are the result of self-ownership and self-responsibility. Just like the terms of a contract between businessmen, boundaries set the standards for relationships.
I would recommend everyone to check out Steve Franssen for more on boundaries. He concretized the idea for the philosophical community and has personally enlightened me on this issue. I will talk about some of my own history with boundaries and the general idea of it. He goes much deeper. His book Make Self-Knowledge Great Again is simply the bible of self-knowledge and a great starting point for those curious about the concepts discussed on this blog.
I used to be someone with poor interpersonal boundaries. As I learned philosophy and applied it more consistently in my life, I improved my behaviour. I learned that I need to take care of myself, the responsibility for that is on me, not my friends or family (unless you’re a child!). I made a separation of duties and I was able to accomplish much more. I also improved my relationships and made them an equal exchange of value, not a codependent mess.
I was also an open-borders libertarian. I learned that there is a difference between nations. I also learned to care for my own people before others. That is the only way we’re going to get anything done to make the world better. Our responsibility is only to ourselves. I want to help others too, but you have to put the oxygen mask on yourself before you help your kids. Everyone understands this.
Boundaries are empiricism and voluntarism applied to relationships. Empiricism calls on us to deal with the world as it is. To work with from human nature, not against it. I’d like us to reach a point where the State is no longer necessary. Where we are free to make whatever contracts we deem to be profitable to us. We don’t live in a world where people can handle that kind of freedom. We live in a world where we need organized violence and taxation to protect the genetics and cultural heritage of our people.
You don’t have to like empiricism, you don’t have to like the necessity of boundaries, but you have to live with it. Life gets easier if you enjoy being subservient to objective truth.
Bring your standards up and don’t let anyone drag you down into the mud. Don’t let harmful people into your life or into your country. Build a wall for your inner life and protect it like the Hungarians protect their beautiful country.
I hope you had a cosy time with your friends and/or relatives over the Christmas weekend. Many will be setting New Year’s resolutions this weekend, with varying degrees of success. I want to talk about that.
I grew up in a sectarian religious movement which prevented me from participating in certain traditions, like Christmas and New Year’s Celebrations. For the longest time, I was a bit annoyed by it all, to be honest. But as I’ve moved away from the dogma in which I was brought up to a more rational and empirical view of things, I’ve come to appreciate those events and the wisdom behind them.
Winter is a natural time to rest and reflect. It’s a time to reflect on whether or not we’re going in the right direction. We can analyze the path we’ve taken and change our course if need be. I think that’s a very valuable thing. When we take a moment to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we can start to look back. I suggest writing down what you’ve accomplished, then you can see yourself in a greater context and see things more objectively. That’s how you get some really valuable insights into your personality and your goals as a person, in my experience.
Personally, I’ve had a very good year. Settling in a new city, building up a real-life network of friends and allies and getting into a new career are some of the things I’ve done which have made my life better. Naturally, I plan on building upon these advancements and have set some reasonable goals for the next year. What about you? What accomplishments are you proud of? What are your biggest challenges right now? What can you do in 2018 to become a better advocate for our people? What can you do to make yourself and your civilization great again? Those are questions I ask myself as often as possible. The more we examine ourselves and strengthen our personalities, the stronger our movement will be, and the higher the likelihood of victory.
Happy New Year.
A few days ago I listened to a conversation between Mike Enoch and Jean-Francois Gariépy. A lot of ground was covered, but one subject, in particular, grabbed my attention. Political Correctness. I strongly recommend you listen to the whole show, it was an enjoyable experience and I learned a lot from it and I hope you can do the same.
To get to the subject at hand, some people have defined Political Correctness as “niceness” and “not offending anyone”. Those are things which may or may not be good, but the main issue is that the definition is wrong. Political Correctness is thought control. It is a tool used by those in power to silence opposition to The Narrative. Not only does Political Correctness shut down conversations and encourages the “de-platforming” of dissidents, it also fucks with our mind. The Social Engineers in charge of the West at this point in time have found a way to stop Crimethink in its tracks. George Orwell would be terrified. One cannot even begin to entertain a counter-argument to the Liberal agenda without negative feelings being triggered. The moral legitimacy of the system is extreme.
If we do not resist this development with all our wisdom, courage and might, we may perish forever. Consciousness is the proof of existence, and if they can control and manipulate our consciousness with totalitarian language, freedom is lost. Fight back, don’t let them take an inch inside your own head. The Reconquista starts in our own hearts and minds.
We need a society which is run according to the way the world is. We need empiricism, which is really the root of wisdom. We can’t begin to fix the problems we’re faced with if we can’t honestly think and discuss the issues. We need to debate and challenge the ideas and ideals upon which our system is based. That is the only way we can continue to approach our destiny and our dream of a more perfect political solution.
Cultural Marxists get out REEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Dear reader, welcome to the Identity Talks blog. This will be a written companion to the Identity Talks live show. The goal is to delve deeper than we have time for on the show. We will also explore different ideas which might not be relevant to the news cycle but are important to our mission.
If you are not familiar with our live show, it’s all in the name. Identity Talks is a focused project, with a clear, concise message. We wish to spread awareness of identitarian issues. Specifically, we want to bring attention to the demographic and cultural dangers which present themselves to Western, European-descended peoples. We are not exclusively concerned with politics, however.
We believe that there is a deeper, more personal way these issues present themselves. We wish to empower the individual by encouraging self-exploration and personal improvement. We believe that this is the only sustainable way to affect change in the world, especially in the areas of relationships and child-raising. After all, this is where we have the most power. Extreme vetting starts in your personal life! As a civilization, the level to which we overcome our past traumas and limitations is the degree to which we prosper.
We hope to present insightful and actionable information you can apply in your own life. We want to build a body of work which can serve as a complete introduction to the discipline of self-knowledge.
I hope you will join us on this adventure! We are looking for writers who are as passionate about these ideas as we are. Please send all inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. In most circumstances, I’ll follow up with you within 48 hours.
Emanuel Neves, co-host of Identity Talk
