When I hear Milo speak about what true conservatism stands for, I think to myself that conservatism sounds like a wonderful thing that I want to be a part of.
Then I read about how conservatives have given away so much to the left on gun control.
Then I read about how conservatives have given away so much to the left on immigration.
Then I read about how conservatives have given away so much to the left on transgender issues.
Then I read about how conservatives have given away so much to the left on higher taxes.
Then I read about how conservatives have given away so much to the left on banning hate speech.
I knew before I even took the label of conservative that others would want, if not enjoy, placing guilt on me for failures in our government. The failures that have given over to pleasing the left so they could avoid being called racists, bigots, Nazis, xenophobes, sexist, misogynist, etc.
But when I hear Milo’s definition, it sounds like something I want to aspire to.
I also hear members of the alt-right talking about how conservatives are completely ill-equipped, if not incapable of addressing the problems that the U.S. will face in the coming decades ahead. This is without a doubt, extremely true. Conservatives, if they want to survive, must adopt some of the theories that the alt-right has developed. Things such as race realism, human biodiversity, closed borders (until demographics can heal a bit). And they must do so without the fear of being called racist or anti-immigrant. I personally think that anyone against these things is anti-American. Because they have no understanding of what made America a strong country to begin with. And here’s a clue. It was never diversity.
The alt-right says constantly that conservatism is dead. Maybe it is. Or maybe it’s evolving into something else. Something that the palecons and neocons can’t fathom or even come close to understanding. Which might be why they are still scratching their heads at the ascendancy of God-Emperor to the cherry blossom throne.
But Milo is certainly right about one thing in this conversation. Conservatism is a bit lost at the moment. The philosophy in general is lost. But while being lost and not concretely defined, maybe something new can rise from the ashes. That might be the alt-right. If conservatism is dying, and it appears as though it is, I want on board with the alt-right. Because they are the only ones willing to examine questions, facts, and identity in ways that are realistic and will keep European culture alive.
