Trump: Man v. Ideology

Why did Trump win? Because he represented a paradigm shift away from the failing ideologies of globalisation/open-borders, and back towards a realistic group-oriented identity politics i.e. sober protective nationalism. In a similar vein to Brexit.

One key ideology that Trump defied was the insane free-trade groupthink that has crushed debate for decades, summed up beautifully in this Michael Moore video:

Anne Coulter also sums it up, it was all about "globalism vs. nationality":

And tech billionaire Peter Thiel also hit the nail on the head, by saying that we've been living in these fantasy bubbles, that have trapped us in over-optimistic ideologies such as free-trade and endless unwinnable wars in the Muslim world:
"We’re voting for Trump because we judge the leadership of our country to have failed ...

The trade bubble says everyone’s a winner. The war bubble says victory is just around the corner, but these overoptimistic stories simply aren’t true and voters are tired of being lied to. …

Whatever happens in this election, Trump represents isn’t crazy, and it’s not going away. He points towards a new Republican party beyond the dogma of Reaganism".

And here's a reminder of how free-trade isn't working for America, leaving them mired with permanent trade deficits.

Carefully managed trade with peaceful allies can be a good thing. But mindless and reckless free-trade with our enemies is complete insanity.

Group Fitness - Mind, Body & Spirit

My new website is now live:

Below is the table of contents, followed by a brief introduction.

Some of the pictures are a bit flippant, but the content is serious. The topic is so heavy, that I'd rather lighten the tone, than bring it down with depressing pictures.

IF THE NUMBER of dystopian metaphors in circulation is any indication, we live in troubled times. Apparently, the Western world is asleep, absent minded, and on the path to suicide.  Read More...

HUMAN NATURE IS GROUP ORIENTED. Generally speaking, we like to harmonise with the people around us. Groupishness, to a large degree, is the natural state of humans. Read More...

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. For this website, I'm going to assume that the pursuit of happiness is our goal as individuals. At least for most of us, most of the time. Read More...

INDIVIDUALISM WITHOUT GROUP DIRECTION. In recent times the West has made great strides in the pursuit of individual happiness. However, in many other ways, the West is headed in a distinctly unhappy direction. Read More...

UNDER PRESSURE, only clear and strong ideas survive. Vague, woolly, and complicated thoughts can get thrown by the wayside under the stress of competition. Read More ...

The purpose of the website is to address the lack of constructive and unifying narrative in the Western world, which is a one reason why we're slow to mount much resistance to our decline.

The website is not a detailed prescription for the West. Rather, it's a broad unifying structure and foundation. In technical terms it's a structural, meta-ethical and relational narrative.

That said, it's not a highbrow or intellectual narrative at all. It's actually just common sense.

It's about setting some common goals, outlining a structure within which to pursue those goals, and facilitating smooth relations between the various subgroups of the West.

In terms of goals, the website focuses on the human dimension to life i.e. the pursuit of happiness. That said, it's not anti-religion, or anti-tradition. It's not prescriptive down to that level.

The structure is where group fitness comes in. The key concept is that "groups survive, individualism dies" and so our happiness depends on us falling into line with some group structure, and putting our talents to work in the interests of our group's survival.

The relational aspect is just some ideas for facilitating smooth relations between the subgroups of the West. The purpose being to keep the West as big and united as possible, because we're going to need every friend and ally we can make, going forward in a hostile world.

("United" does not mean forced coexistence or forced mixing, it just means goodwill and cooperation against common threats).

For veterans of the alt-right/conservative scene, there's not a whole lot new here. It's just re-packaging some common sense basics. But even these basics are still muddled too often, meaning that we're spinning our wheels instead of going forward with a unifying narrative. We need to put these basics behind us, and get on with confronting the serious threats in front of us.

If you see any typing errors, or other problems reading or viewing the website, let me know.

Due to health problems, I ran out of steam before completing the website, and there are a few incomplete or sketchy sections at the end. But I may not have the energy to finish it off, so I'm publishing it "as is".

If you like the website, please copy, download, republish, or mirror it, in case it ever disappears. There are no copyright restrictions on the content.

Alt-Right Meta (on Reddit)

Alt-Right Meta: more commentary and less news.

There's now a Reddit forum dedicated to Alt-Right commentary, minus all the distracting news.

Essentially, it's a low noise forum, which limits the news reporting to just big events, and thus leaves space for thoughtful alt-right commentary, which might otherwise get lost in the stream of negative news flowing by these days.

I also have an embedded Storify page which I update with news.

Merkel broke the EU with refugee flood

Here is my guess at why Brits voted to leave the EU. It was the haunting images of the flood of refugees flowing into Europe, a literal invasion, which Merkel welcomed and encouraged with open arms. And the threat of Turkey joining the EU loomed ominously too.

These sorts of images are burned into the brain. They are a symbol of the complete insanity of our current political class. Such pictures show that the Western world is in serious trouble, and headed for oblivion if we don't find new leaders, and new paradigms, and quickly.

Congrats to the Brits for restoring some sanity. I don't know why Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain.

The Brits have had their vote on immigration. Now it’s Australia’s turn.

This video comes via Oz Conservative. It's another option for Australian voters at this weekend's election.

Sustainable Australia wants to seriously cut back on immigration levels, but purely for reasons of sustainability i.e. environment, infrastructure, and quality of life. And they want to curb foreign ownership which is spiking housing affordability.

So, they aren't an alt-right or identity-based party, but given the lack of choices in Australian politics, they might be worth voting for if you can't find anyone better.

The 5 (or so) mindsets in Australian politics

With a record 15% of Australians set to vote for fringe candidates at the next federal election, here's my take on the current major mindsets in Australian politics.

Yes, there are many more distinctions than these 5, but these are the important forces, as I see it.


Here we have folks who are:

- Pessimistic/skeptical about the "peaceful" nature of Islam and China.
- Have reservations about mass immigration, free trade and foreign ownership.
- Are more concerned about community, culture and social cohesion, than about individualism.
- Long-term thinkers.
- Mostly white folks.


Here we have folks like current leader Malcolm Turnbull who recently professed:

"There has never been a more exciting time to be alive than today and there has never been a more exciting time to be an Australian".

It's sunshine, rainbows and lollipops all the way with these folks.


This mindset is more prevalent in the bureaucracy than in politics. It's the police, intelligence agencies, defence, and other departments. These are the folks trying to keep the peace, and just want everyone to get along. These folks are on the frontline of containing the chaos of diversity, and containing the attacks from China (possibly even beyond hacking). They're probably fighting a losing battle against a growing Muslim population, and an endless number of covert attacks from China.


These are the folks who want radical diversity to flourish in every corner of life. There is no escape from these folks: every micro-aggression, every thought, and every speech, must be censored so that radicals everywhere are "welcomed" and "accepted". Best to back away slowly from these folks, they are quite mad.


Here we have the growing immigrant anti-white identity politics. It's not represented by any political party yet, although there was one all-Chinese group in the last NSW election. These folks will mostly vote Labor or Green just to open the borders to more immigration. And can you imagine what immigration levels will be like once these folks gain power? Head for the hills.

------------ Looking Ahead -----------

So, looking ahead, which mindsets are likely to prevail? My guess is that groups 1 and 5 will grow, with identity politics solidifying further. Meanwhile, the oddball groups in the middle, 2 & 4, will wither and die under the chaos of diversity and the growing spectre of China as it casts a terrifying shadow further across the region. And the "Fire Department" will remain continuously overworked.

Which brings us to a possible future divide in Australian politics that will dwarf all other divisions.


As China's power grows in the region, and America hesitates to defend its allies here, and perhaps even turns isolationist (e.g. Trump), Australia faces the scary prospect of trying to resist the power of China, without the aid of America, relying only on allies in the region.

In this regard, if Australians comes to their senses, the most important political distinction in the future will be between the Sinophiles and Sinophobes.

Our current leader Malcolm Turbull is clearly a perplexing Sinophile, seemingly even worse than Rudd was. And if (a) America abandons the Asian region and (b) more Australians follow Turnbull and kowtow to China, then Australia may well be the first Western country to fall. 

Will enough Australians recognise the threat of China before it's too late? Who knows. But this distinction (Sinophiles v. Sinophobes) is probably the most important for Australia's future.

So, who am I voting for? That's like asking: what don't I want for dinner? There's not much to choose from. Yes, the Australian Liberty Alliance stands against Muslim immigration, and that's great.

But the biggest threat to Australia is not Muslims (unless they go nuclear terrorism). No, the biggest threats are (a) Asian immigration and (b) the rise of China.

And the only people who stand against these threats are really on the fringe e.g. Pauline Hanson, One Nation Party, Australia First Party, Australian Protectionist Party, Australian Party For Freedom, etc.

Confucius Institutes: Academic Malware

Here in Australia there's talk about the Confucius Institutes in schools and universities. It's obvious that these are subtle agents of Chinese propaganda, seeking to control what people think about critical issues (South China Sea disputes, Taiwan, Tibet, Uighurs etc) and paint an image of China as always peaceful and never seeking hegemony or conflict. China is the gold medalist in propaganda. They want to control your thoughts, just like they control the Chinese people's.
Behind Confucius Classrooms: the Chinese government agency teaching NSW school students:

NSW public schools are being paid at least $10,000 a year by a Chinese government body to offer its Chinese language and culture courses, and some schools make it compulsory to attend.

Despite concerns over the appropriateness of outsourcing public school lesson time to a foreign government body, the state government expanded the program - known as Confucius Classrooms - to a further six schools in late 2015.

These classes might be free to Treasury, but they are paid for by exposing children to a foreign government's propaganda machine.

One Chinese-Australian parent, whose son is at a school where attendance at the Confucius Classrooms program is compulsory from kindergarten to year 2, said it was akin to "the infiltration of the Chinese Communist Party into the NSW public school system"...

Independent China expert Professor Jocelyn Chey of the University of Sydney said: "One might say that if a school program is 'just teaching language', it could not be political, but with Chinese everything is political."
