Toward a New Nationalism: Greg Johnson
A specter is haunting the world, the specter of White Nationalism. Trump, Brexit, Le Pen, Orbán, Salvini: white identity politics is on the rise. Even though the entire political establishment, Left and Right, is committed to globalism, populist nationalism is sweeping Europe and put Donald Trump in the White House. In The White Nationalist Manifesto, Greg Johnson defends the most radical form of white identity politics: White Nationalism, which upholds the right of all white peoples to self-determination. Multiculturalism is a social experiment imposed by international elites on unwilling nations. That experiment has failed. Diversity is not a source of strength, but of alienation, hatred, and violence. But even those problems pale before the fact that the white race in all its historical homelands is on the road to biological extinction-unless there is radical political change. White Nationalists aim to end multiculturalism; restore unified, national cultures; reverse non-white immigration and white demographic decline; and affirm the right of all peoples to self-determination in racially and ethnically homogeneous homelands. Written with great simplicity and clarity, The White Nationalist Manifesto offers a compelling moral case for White Nationalism, presenting it as a logical extension of endangered species conservation policy to the human realm. The Manifesto also clarifies fundamental White Nationalist ideas, patiently refutes common objections, outlines broad policy objectives, and maps a path to power. Once again, Greg Johnson shows he is a master of making radical ideas sweetly reasonable. The White Nationalist Manifesto is required reading for anyone who wants to understand both the origins and ultimate aims of the rising resistance to globalism, multiculturalism, and liberal democracy.
From a Pulitzer Prize finalist, a new and eye-opening interpretation of the meaning of the frontier, from early westward expansion to Trump’s border wall. Ever since this nation’s inception, the idea of an open and ever-expanding frontier has been central to American identity. Symbolizing a future of endless promise, it was the foundation of the United States’ belief in itself as an exceptional nation - democratic, individualistic, forward-looking. Today, though, America has a new symbol: the border wall. In The End of the Myth, acclaimed historian Greg Grandin explores the meaning of the frontier throughout the full sweep of US history - from the American Revolution to the War of 1898, the New Deal to the election of 2016. For centuries, he shows, America’s constant expansion - fighting wars and opening markets - served as a ´´gate of escape”, helping to deflect domestic political and economic conflicts outward. But this deflection meant that the country’s problems, from racism to inequality, were never confronted directly. And now, the combined catastrophe of the 2008 financial meltdown and our unwinnable wars in the Middle East have slammed this gate shut, bringing political passions that had long been directed elsewhere back home. It is this new reality, Grandin says, that explains the rise of reactionary populism and racist nationalism, the extreme anger and polarization that catapulted Trump to the presidency. The border wall may or may not be built, but it will survive as a rallying point, an allegorical tombstone marking the end of American exceptionalism. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Pollins.
