If You Want Free Speech, Get Rid Of Democracy

Let’s take a step back and look at the big picture here.

Is there an all-powerful state that is watching you from CCTV cameras, monitoring you for hate speech at all times? Maybe if you live in London that is a day to day reality, but for most people, it is peer pressure that keeps a lid on any CrimeThink.

Your friends and co-workers will report you before Big Brother’s spies ever will.

This phenomenon decreases as you go to other countries where there is less pretense to democracy. Authoritarian states tend to be freer in many ways. When the people’s political opinion doesn’t matter, their opinions don’t have to be so closely monitored and controlled. Centuries ago in the West, you got only punished when you spoke against the king or the church, but now everything is self-regulated, every thing we do, say and believe, therefore potentially every word we say can bring social ostracization upon us. Alexis de Tocqueville remarked on this observation way back when:

I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America. In any constitutional state in Europe every sort of religious and political theory may be freely preached and disseminated; for there is no country in Europe so subdued by any single authority as not to protect the man who raises his voice in the cause of truth from the consequences of his hardihood. If he is unfortunate enough to live under an absolute government, the people are often on his side; if he inhabits a free country, he can, if necessary, find a shelter behind the throne. The aristocratic part of society supports him in some countries, and the democracy in others. But in a nation where democratic institutions exist, organized like those of the United States, there is but one authority, one element of strength and success, with nothing beyond it.

If you didn’t complain too much about the king, you were otherwise left off the hook, not a bad deal by today’s standards, you must admit.

But then the era of mass democracy dawned, and people’s opinions suddenly mattered, therefore they had to be molded.

And now, you have regular shmucks who willingly enforce the ruling dogma of the state by keeping tabs on you, even though ostensibly they are in the same boat as you. The state doesn’t need to denounce you, your own co-workers will and HR will take it from there. The state doesn’t need to send SWAT teams after you, Antifa will do the dirty work for them.

As a result, people have become stunted. Have you noticed how difficult it has become to talk about anything other than Netflix with a regular guy? This is no mistake, the number of safe topics is diminishing every year. Football is politicized, Game of Thrones is politicized, people’s elective identities now revolve around their political identities.

Which is a shame for the little people living little lives throughout the country. There is a certain charm in living abroad in a country where the State is all-powerful. There’s a feeling of solidarity and comradery that comes from having no illusions about your ability to influence the throne. It does wonders for your ability to speak freely in mixed company. Whether its a Liberal or a Nationalist or even a NatsBol, you can find common ground. And why shouldn’t you? These are just hobbies for people in a less than democratic state. No one thinks anything will come of it. So why fight one another over what essentially is abstract theory? Why go out to “Bash the Fash” when the all-powerful State isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Better to pass the drink along, lighten up and have a laugh. You’re all in the same boat, after all.

A White Ethnostate is the only answer! Democracy is a joke, a lie. I don’t want a nonwhite making my laws for me. I am tired of the jews in control. I want a pro-White White Man in charge.

Democracy has always been a cover for oligarchy. Ancient Athens; Republics of Venice, Florence; UK liberalism; US democracy – all oligarchies masquerading as democracies. This is why would-be oppressors and transient grafters like Jews agitate against “authoritarianism,” meaning a government with enough confidence to stop their exploitation. This is why the philosophy that most advances the interest of oligarchs is Libertarianism, for it delegitimizes the only protector the people have. Today we have courts of law, but no courts of equity; the king has been killed and replaced by $$. This is also why Prote$tanti$m is the vehicle through which… Read more »

I agree. Politically correct policies are “democracy’s” way to silence free speech. Last night I saw a movie called “Nothing left to fear”. it was another horror flick targeting Christianity. the hatred against Christianity in that film reminded me of the hatred shown in the Talmud against Christianity. No other faith would put up with this kind of vilification. If a minority makes such a film of Muslim in a Muslim majority nation they usually suffer within 24 to 48 hours after it is released. Same with Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs. Each community will go ballistic within that time. Not… Read more »

Most of these alt righters, “populists” and white nationalists just don’t get it. The problem isn’t just the elites, it’s also the HR departments and people you consider to be next door neighbors. And nepotism is pretty rampant.

“The great masses, who have never been, in the history of mankind, more subject to hypnotic suggestion than they are right now, have become the puppets of the “public opinion” that is engineered by the newspapers in the service, it need hardly be emphasized, of the reigning powers of finance. What is printed in the morning editions of the big city newspapers is the opinion of nine out of ten readers by nightfall. ….

The only reason Trump has any ‘victories’ is because he has used his non democratic powers to effect change. In effect he has been a dictator to get change..

Did i miss something or was that sarcasm? Europe has serious hate speech laws, the US does not, that is just F’N pathetic. I am as pissed as any White Nationalist in America but at least we have free speech and can deny the holocaust without fear of a fine or jail time.

But soon you will have even worse haye speech laws than us. Risking fines up to one million bucks and 20 years in jail if you criticize the jews.

In my workplace, most of the white people are pretty cynical about race relations. We can say things to each other like, “Tawanka would not have gotten that job if she were white.” If we’re in the break room when we say something like this, we look around first, to make sure that no blacks or browns are within earshot.

Free speech that is constructive and meant to better the society is necessary – how else is a nation going to argue and determine the merits of varying polices – this is a fundamental aspect of Fascism – falsehoods,behavior fake news, negative speech with intent to harm the society should be crushed – i.e transgender-ism, pornography, usury, drugs.

Yeah Vinny, authoritarian states are bastions of free speech, lol.

Look, the right to free speech is reeling all across the west, but it’s still a fact that nowhere else on earth are people as free to express political opinions. Only people who hate democracy so much they can’t see straight could disagree with this.

The problem isn’t democracy. The problem is political correctness hasn’t had any competent opposition for decades so it has been able to put an ever tighter stranglehold on public discourse.

A nation is either based on a proposition or a people. If it is based on a people, it can allow free speech. If it based on a proposition, it cannot allow any serious questioning of that proposition. Therefore, it cannot allow free speech.

The minute Europe had a significant number of non-whites, hate speech laws were imposed there. Freedom and diversity are incompatible.

Yeah, states founded on and maintaining their demographic and heritage basis do not have significant free speech issues.

One will keep hearing about how a place like China is not free, but I would bet that the average citizen in China is less afraid to talk about more thing than we are allowed to talk about. Things like race, gender, even religion, they can probably say more things that we are ever allowed to.

But then the era of mass democracy dawned, and people’s opinions suddenly mattered, therefore they had to be molded. Molded by whom? It’s odd the way this article refers to the people doing the “molding” so nebulously. It is almost as if the author doesn’t want us to think about that. This reminds me of what Michael A. Hoffman called “twilight language” in “Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare.” An example he gives of twilight language is the use of “they” to refer to those in control. It is essential that we (meaning the alt-right) always keep our eye on who… Read more »

Democracy, today, has taken on the character of a global, false, religion.

Crud Bonemeal

I’m sure there is some truth to those observations, but if those authoritarian states had an elite as hostile as our elite, then those people would be really screwed, communism style. And the UK is still more screwed than the US, because it has a similarly hostile elite, but a more all powerful state. 2017 criticisms of democracy need to take into account the fact that THE MOB elected the white people’s nominally right wing party to control all branches of government, and it simply refused to do anything, and actively worked to prevent it’s president from doing things for… Read more »

The only difference between the US today, and the former Soviet Union, is that the Soviet citizens knew they were not free. The majority of Americans and Western Europeans today still think they’re free, when in fact they’re under as much control as any Soviet citizen ever was.

Yeah, great points.

But I haven’t read NRx’s critique of democracy. Nor do I espouse support for a managerial elite, aristocratic elite or monarchy.

Just pointing out that there are other parts of the White world where people don’t tear each other to pieces over their political opinons, and speculating on why that is.

You mean over their racial opinions.

Otherwise you’ll find plenty of political bloodsport there too.

Somehow NRX never really took into account the fact that in the United States we didn’t vote for most of this, and voted against much of it, and we’re still voting against it. And without the UNDEMOCRATIC actions of a hostile elite, this country would be far to the right of where it is today. The issue with democracy isn’t that our people are suicidal (like some would have us believe), it’s that Democratic politicians can be bought off by powerful lobbies. It’s the traitors within our people, who often end up skyrocketing to the top of the political world,… Read more »

Unfortunately the logical endpoint of universal suffrage democracy is the ‘special interest’. The idea that disputes between factions can be settled at the ballot box is myopic and assumes a base-level of decorum which the system actively disincentivizes. The system only works when built upon a large amount of social capital accumulated through a preceding political formula which democracy will eventually squander. Political blocs are institutions unto themselves and gain power through polarization so actually resolving conflicts is rarely in the interests of any bloc. You need an enemy outgroup to define, rally and recruit for your ingroup. Add in… Read more »

So if the choice is between living in a place where having opinion an doesn’t matter or a place where having an opinion can get you killed, the former sounds better but it will come at a perceived cost because of what we’re used to. Here’s the thing though, in the latter scenario where your opinion makes no difference in a political sense, opinions will matter very much in a cultural sense. Under the rule of a King or Monarchy, certain things are expected of individuals, but as long as those certain things are met, it doesn’t matter what else… Read more »
