Our movement is currently benefitting from the (often limited) freedom of speech that the ruling liberal-leftists continue to allow us to have. Originally the concept of freedom of speech was advocated for by liberals, Jews, etc., who wanted to be able to criticize ruling institutions such as the Church, monarchy and the aristocracy in hopes of breaking their long standing authoritarian hold on power in Europe and elsewhere. Liberals (backed by the Jews) particularly wanted to criticize the Church which was often previously not allowed under blasphemy laws. Once this alliance of malcontents succeeded in overthrowing the old European establishment, most notably in 1789, so called ‘liberal’ ideas became mainstream.
Fast forward to the present day where we see current European societies, founded largely on these ideas, crumbling, the ruling left-liberal establishment is now trying to end freedom of speech as it is their opposition who are now utilizing it. This is exactly what we are seeing with the treasonous British MP Yvette Cooper, the ‘Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee’, who is trying to pressure Youtube to remove Alt-Right channels which she feels threaten her ideological power. Here she is mentioning Red Ice as one of the channels she would like to ban.
Alt-Right authoritarians such as those who advocate a return of 1930s style National Socialism are hypocritical on this issue. They need freedom of speech to pontificate now, but they make clear that if and when they take power, they certainly won’t allow it for their opponents. They lament their own speech being suppressed by authoritarian leftists, yet cheer authoritarian regimes such as Russia when Putin’s opponents and critics are jailed. This approach is not entirely viable as it only works if the ruling authoritarian government ticks every box of ours in terms of policy. Even if we had a government which supported every one of our policies, as soon as there was a change of policy not in our favour, under an authoritarian system we would have no means to change it back to how we wanted it. Also there are differing opinions within the Alt-Right. No authoritarian Alt-Right government would please every section. Aspects of democracy would therefore be necessary in order to critique state and local policy.
In a recent interview, Sargon of Akkad posed various questions to Millennial Woes relating to authoritarianism, of which Woes was largely not sure of the answers. Sargon created a survey for Alt-Righters which included some of these questions. One of them was ‘Should interracial couples be forced to separate?’ Woes intelligently said they should not be forced, but that racial mixing should be discouraged culturally. Other questions were, ‘Should the government prevent citizens from leaving the country to preserve the race?’, ‘Should the state control the media?’ and ‘Should the state control the economy?’ These questions reflect more the stances of the statist and socialist National Socialist and National Bolshevik factions of the Alt-Right, not those of us who seek a society with many everyday freedoms but which is also ethnocentric.
We should have low taxation, extensive gun and self defense rights, freedom of speech and private property rights which make us more powerful in the face of what are often hostile statist entities who want to rule every aspect of our lives. All the state really has to do is patrol the borders and deport invaders. The problem with fascism is that it is too statist like the communists and modern socialists are. The problem with libertarianism is it’s lack of emphasis on ethnic/racial preservation and tribalism. Essentially what we need is libertarian ethno-nationalism so that we can have the best of both worlds. Europeans are traditionally both tribal and individualistic. Our heraldry is a great example of this with each individual having his own coat of arms based on his ancestral pride and heritage. One day we will brave the stars as our Viking forebarers did the seas, carving out new dominions for ourselves and our Volk.
