Ryu recently said, I think, that white nationalism is dead. I can’t find where I thought he said it but this is close.
It’s not a hard call to make. WN was barely alive to begin with. Anybody who tried resisting the system in an organized, violent way has wound up dead- burned alive often, with statistically curious frequency- or doing life in supermax.
WNs are a kind of suicide squad, as I have written elsewhere. Usually people with nothing to lose or eager to go out in a blaze of glory. I had a long spell of unemployment where I said to myself, “If God wants me to be the Punisher, I’ll be the Punisher.” I have since regained my perilous grip on lower middle-class status, but there’s no guarantee I’ll maintain it.
The typical man does not want to die for his race. He will fight for his race, but he would like to win.
Ryu notes frequently that soldiers and cops make poor criminals, because they work with extensive support systems. But really being a cop or a soldier is just a job. Cops go to work, get paid (a lot of money), enjoy their time off, and retire with a nice pension. The best a cop can expect in his job is to fight to a draw, to keep a lid on things. Idealists can’t deal with it but few cops are idealists now.
Soldiers- or let’s say armed forces members- mostly have it even easier. They mostly work in jobs very much like a civilian, are paid but not as well as cops, and have benefits and retirements but not as good as cops. Most aren’t serving their country or doing anything heroic. Only combat infantry is suffering anything most civilians don’t deal with as well.
However, for the real soldier, fate can be very grim. He goes to fight and may suffer serious physical and psychiatric injuries, his side loses and he comes home ruined and nobody cares or will help him. World War II is portrayed as a great victory but many fighting men were permanently destroyed by it, a story which you don’t hear much about.
If white nationalism never got off the ground, it’s because nobody could figure out what it was. Was it a war? WNs who acted like soldiers got killed. Was it politics? WN political activism has been mostly ineffective, although the Overton window has moved some recently.
If there is ever going to be any meaningful white nationalism, it has to be something different.
