Identitarianism and the Great Replacement

What is Identitarianism?

Identitarianism is a metapolitical framework within which Identitarians work to influence political and socio-economic activity in an effort to protect and preserve racial, ethnic, and cultural identity. Identitarians share a traditional worldview of the historical development of the various and differing peoples of the world. Our primary ideological principle maintains that every race, ethnic group, and culture have immeasurable inherent value and should be afforded the right to live and develop themselves as they see fit through the cardinal principle of self-determination, remaining steadfastly against adverse influence from imposing forces that wish to destroy them.

Every racial and ethnic group existing today has a history all their own. Each person belonging to these populations are the result of thousands of years of historical and cultural evolution and development. Identitarians are aware that their ethnic and cultural identities have been under attack for generations and aim to counter these attacks on multiple fronts.

The cultural institutions that set European culture apart from others, the very institutions that built and maintain European civilization and European values, are crumbling under the weight of a relatively new enemy, that of Cultural Marxism. Marriage, Family, Faith, Government, Tradition, Education, and the Arts are being subverted from within and fundamentally altered from without. Contemporary views toward cultural institutions have undergone such a paradigm shift that our youth now view traditional values and cultural institutions as old, outdated, and no longer necessary to maintain society.

Cultural Marxism is a culturally toxic worldview that was popularized by the Baby-Boomer generation. Their willful rejection of cultural institutions resulted in political correctness and societal entropy. The Boomers effectively turned their backs on thousands of years of positive cultural development, divested themselves of their identity, and introduced this poison into the minds of their children so that they no longer know who they are, where they come from, and thus have no sense of direction. Today’s youth are simply taught to consume and be satisfied with their lot in life and to never question the authority of their anti-nature multiculturalist society.

The crushing tide of Cultural Marxism has given rise to the Nine False Values. These so-called values malign traditional Western cultural values and corrupt the minds of those who embrace them. They  are Liberalism Modernism, Ignorance, Individualism, Egalitarianism, Moral Relativism, Universalism, Multiculturalism, Materialism, and Miscegenation. Through the adoption of these values, the left has successfully ushered in the age of the Great Replacement, the plan to cripple and utterly destroy civilization beyond repair.

What is the Great Replacement?

There are many different descriptions and colloquialisms that nationalists and identitarians use to characterize the Great Replacement. Everything from an invasion, disenfranchisement, to dispossession. However the most accurate term is genocide.

The legal definition of genocide can be found in Articles II and III of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide. Article II defines genocide as the “destruction in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group.

Article III lists the five crimes associated with genocide and their descriptions. The following are listed as punishable acts “when committed as part of a policy to destroy a group’s existence”:

  1. Killing members of the group includes direct killing and actions causing death.
  2. Causing serious bodily or mental harm includes inflicting trauma on members of the group through widespread torture, rape, sexual violence, forced or coerced use of drugs, and mutilation.
  3. Deliberately inflicting conditions of life calculated to destroy a group includes the deliberate deprivation of resources needed for the group’s physical survival, such as clean water, food, clothing, shelter or medical services. Deprivation of the means to sustain life can be imposed through confiscation of harvests, blockade of foodstuffs, detention in camps, forcible relocation or expulsion into deserts.
  4. Prevention of births includes involuntary sterilization, forced abortion, prohibition of marriage, and long-term separation of men and women intended to prevent procreation.
  5. Forcible transfer of children may be imposed by direct force or by fear of violence, duress, detention, psychological oppression or other methods of coercion. The Convention on the Rights of the Child defines children as persons under the age of 18 years.

It goes on to say that “genocidal acts need not kill or cause the death of members of a group. Causing serious bodily or mental harm, prevention of births and transfer of children are acts of genocide when committed as part of a policy to destroy a group’s existence.

Given the aforementioned definition and descriptions of genocidal acts, combined with what we are witnessing in Europe and the Anglosphere as regards anti-European sentiment, we derive our definition of the Great Replacement as a loosely organized, multi-tiered, long term strategy with the ultimate aim of the replacement (i.e., destruction) of the European people.

It consists of a minimum of four chronological, often overlapping, phases: the critique of organic culture, the corruption of traditional values, the introduction of alternative artificial values, and finally the outright destruction of the culture bearers.

The proponents of the Great Replacement strategy were well aware that the European people could not be corrupted using quick and easy tactics, so a long term plan was devised to cloak their intentions and gradually lead European culture toward its own annihilation. Since the 1950s European people across the world have been exposed to ever-increasing decadence through various mediums. Faith, family, and a sense of pride for one’s own people were the first to be attacked. As with most movements wishing to alter society, they began with the youth of the nation. Television, radio, advertising, technology, books, fashion, education, consumerism, and other forms of popular culture were recognized as the easiest and most effective mediums through which Cultural Marxists could work to replace traditional values. They have worked tirelessly to gain an edge in the phenomena of popular culture in order to cloud the minds of our youth and begin dismantling the foundations of traditional European culture brick by brick. Religion, the family unit, and racial or ethnic pride were the primary defenses keeping Cultural Marxist values at bay. They had to find a way to weaken those defenses so they could set to work on further corrupting, and therefore changing society to suit their own ends.

The intellectual foundations of Cultural Marxism and the beginnings of the Great Replacement can be traced back to the founding of the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research at The Goethe University of Frankfurt by the Marxist philosopher Carl Grünberg. In keeping with Karl Marx’s’ dictum that “The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.”, Max Horkheimer’s penned an essay entitled Traditional  and Critical Theory. In it, he demonstrates that the intent of the Frankfurt School’s Critical Theory is to fundamentally alter society, to transform it and emancipate it from its traditional values.

During the interwar and postwar periods following World War 2, neo-Marxist Frankfurt School philosophers Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno published Dialectic of Enlightenment and Minima Moralia: Reflections from a Damaged Life. These works are considered fundamental texts in Critical Theory and were highly critical of Western culture. They expounded upon the idea that nationalism and traditionalism were actually societal regressions that needed to be eliminated. These works, among others, attempt to pathologize traditional thought and undermine traditional values and organic culture by claiming that traditionalism is a sickness to be cured, rather than virtues to be celebrated and preserved.

In essence, the Frankfurt School’s Critical Theory calls for the destruction of naturally occurring organic culture, specifically that of European or Western culture, and supplanting it with an artificial one based on the false values of universalism, egalitarianism, and multiculturalism.

The primary barricades against cultural decadence have been breached, and only small fortifications now exist on the fringes of society. These red-pilled protectors of European culture and identity have been maligned for decades as hate-mongering Fascists, Nazis, racists, bigots, and misogynists.

Over the past decade, however, the pendulum has started to swing back against the so-called anti-Fascists as our people have begun awakening to the plight of the European people. In response, the final phase of the Great Replacement was initiated. Calls by the liberal left for open borders are now being answered. Politicians from the left and right have effectively swung the doors wide open in nearly every European country on earth while completely ignoring what little resistance they encountered.

The indigenous European populations of their respective countries are now threatened with minority status within 40 years or sooner. The European American population has dwindled from 90% to just 63% from 1950 to 2012 due to low birth rates, miscegenation, and ever-increasing mass immigration of non-European peoples.

Since the European Migrant Crisis began in 2015, Europe has seen millions of non-European peoples, consisting primarily of military-aged, Muslim males, freely strolling over their borders. They have been deemed refugees attempting to escape the outbreak of war in Syria, however, rather than seek refuge in neighboring Islamic countries, they headed straight for Continental Europe and are soon to be welcomed in the United States. Since 2015 we have seen a multitude of terrorist attacks by these alleged “asylum seekers.” What is worse is that due to Cultural Marxist inculcation, the victims of these atrocities have received more blame than the perpetrators. Yet these are just a few of the examples of the things we can expect as our European identity fades into oblivion. These were not the first attacks, and they will certainly not be the last considering the overwhelming response of European leaders is to invite more refugees into their nations.

How do We Stop It?

Competition and self-interest, existing both on the individual and group levels is a natural human tendency. Given that culture is born of race, competition between cultures is sure to be found in an artificially diverse, multicultural society. This is the fate of European culture in its respective countries. Due to the invasion of non-European peoples into both Continental Europe and the countries making up the Anglosphere, the overwhelming influence of non-European cultures has reduced European cultural hegemony to practically nothing. When those customs and traditions that uphold a people’s interests and secure their survival die, the culture bearers, charged with maintaining identity, die with it.

If we hope to halt the Great Replacement, we must reverse the process. We must re-establish European Identity so that we can proceed towards Cultural Hegemony in our own lands again. While the tables are beginning to turn on our leftist detractors, we must use this momentum to slingshot Identitarian Politics into the mainstream so that we can raise a conscious awareness of the reality of the Great Replacement. There are myriad ways we can all work together on to restore our identity. Identitarian groups, small and large, all falling under the banner of the Alt-Right, are appearing everywhere. While each group has its own particular focus and purpose, the singular goal of each of them is to re-establish and preserve European identity by stemming the tide of multiculturalism and the Great Replacement. The Alt-Right bears witness that European youth are becoming increasingly aware that their interests are no longer being looked after and that their prospects for a future are bleak at best should the status quo remain.

All races and ethnicities have the right to self-determination. This right, though, is not guaranteed by any law or act. It must be purchased with constant vigilance. A world that is apathetic toward identity is automatically opposed to it and complacency will certainly not lead us toward our goal. Once we restore our identity as European descended people, we cannot leave it stagnant. We must promote it by being living examples of our values.

The Alt-Right exists to help re-establish and reinvigorate European identity, especially among our youth.We do this by acknowledging that we are indeed a distinct people, worthy of a future and rejecting the lies that previous generations have taught us. We are turning off our televisions, stepping away from our keyboards, and getting into the streets to talk to our people face to face about issues that affect and relate to us. We will help them to learn about our history as a people, to realize that we all have individual and group value, and that we deserve to preserve, protect, and promote our own interests as a people.

We do not expect our politicians to help us with a centralized top-down approach, nor do we want them to. We have already begun the process through personal development, educating ourselves on our true history so that we may know our future. We are doing the same with our families and we are also moving into the streets of our local communities, forming direct action groups that meet and recruit regularly to discuss issues, demonstrate, protest, formulate new initiatives, and participate in community activities and events. When we make ourselves visible in our communities, they will see that we are working toward a positive goal of unifying our people. As Markus Willinger stated, “If we are not in the streets, we don’t exist.” Positive activism will ultimately result in strengthening the bonds between not just our own people, but will inspire others to follow our lead.

The Alt-Right is the future of the entirety of European peoples, but our future remains in the balance. Strong identitarian values will help to tip the scale toward a positive future. Should the scales tip the other way, though, we are headed for certain destruction.
