A New America Will Be Created By the Young

Jack Donovan writes on why he prefers Hilary Clinton win over the Trumpenfuehrer (Recent events seem to indicate this won’t happen, but I’m not speculating).

I want soldiers across the country to grimace and feel a little bit sick every time they salute, knowing that she’s their commander-in-chief. I want men all over America to cry during the national anthem for all the wrong reasons. I want them to become angry and defiant. I want them to get misty during fireworks next July, not because their hearts are filled with Budweiser and Apple pie, but because they are bargaining with themselves.

“If only we’d done something sooner.”

I think most middle and lower class white American men know on some semi-conscious level that America is never going to be great again — at least not for them — but it is going to take Hillary Clinton’s cold, Reptilian resting bitch-face on a Presidential portrait to make them accept it and start working through the rest of the stages of grief, so they can finally move on. So they can finally start imagining a post-American future for themselves and begin developing tribal alternatives, before it is too late. Before there are too few of them left to matter.

His proposal is the answer to the Wiglaf Question. My own personal observations suggest that any new America will be created chiefly by young Americans who have no ties to the old America, chiefly because they weren’t around to experience it and have no investments in the United States.

Generally speaking, most conservative Baby Boomers and even Generation Xers who have something to lose will cling to the delusion until their graves; Hillary Clinton will be their president and the United States will still be their country – at least in their own minds even though their neighborhood is full of people who do not speak their language or celebrate any American holidays.

The reasons are obvious. Baby Boomers grew up during a time when America was distinctly and uniformly American, and they behave as though it is still the case; they are like the high school football player for whom it is always senior year when he caught the state championship-winning 55 yard pass despite the fact that he’s 55 now and can hardly jog. He’s living in the past to avoid confronting the present.

A lot of Boomers also have a retirement chocked full of Social Security, Medicare, and pensions at half salary. Things may get ugly for their grandchildren, but they’re too full of nostalgia for the good ol’ days to even entertain that thought or the realization that it is time to move on. They have little to no incentive to do so.

The same could be said for Generation Xers who lived during a time of relative economic prosperity, but they – like the Boomers and nearly everyone else- also adhere to the magic dirty theory in which anyone who enters the United States will suddenly or eventually transform into a John Lockean limited government, pro gun rights/free speech/separation of church and state Anglophile.

If any kind of new identity is made, the bulk of the movement will be comprised of Millennials too young to remember the last vestige of the old America dissipating before their adolescent eyes.

However, the movement itself will be led by older men from these previous generations who, for one reason or another, reject the groupthink of their peers. They will provide the guidance and leadership learned from experience and hardship, but the young will swell the ranks.

For Millennials, the idea of America that the Boomers experienced is nothing but a idealistic dream or some historical time period. It has nothing to do with the current United States Empire, and thus they are not emotionally connected to it.

If our present adventures in the Middle East do not cease, and God forbid a major war break out, we will have an entire generation of young people who do not know what peacetime looks like; they will have known nothing but perpetual war and cavity searches at airports. The realistic among them also realize they have no hope of collecting Social Security when they retire. It won’t be long before retirement as we know it is as quaint a notion as using a 14.4 Internet modem. Marriage is a dying institution as we languish in a post-feminist world.

In other words, Millennials have all the incentives in the world to move on and little reason to maintain the charade.

But it really comes down to ego investment. Most Boomers and Gen Xers have invested too much in the current narrative to detach themselves and start afresh.

The reason the Alt. Right is full of young American men is because they have hardly any investment in the United States as it actually exists today. And why should they? They’ve been taught for years, indirectly or outright, that it is not their country anymore and they need to go away.

They are the ones who will actually do what Donovan hopes:

Men in America can’t keep waiting for someone to come and stand up to feminists and race-baiters and social justice warriors for them, and then stand behind them, saying, “yeah, what he said.” They can’t keep waiting for some elected leader to put big businesses and banks and all of the scheming, swindling, greedy sellouts that run this country in their place. These people hate you, and they don’t care what you think or what you want. No matter what happens to you, they believe you have it coming, and if you don’t do anything about it and take control of your own life and destiny — you will deserve it.

At some point American men are going to have to take a stand, to separate “us” from “them.”They will have to speak the hard truth, to segregate themselves in thought, word, and deed from others who live under the same Empire and ignore it as a legitimate source of authority.

It will undoubtedly require sacrifice and loss by those who do.

If there is ever a New America, it will be created by those willing to pay the price. They will be those with nothing to lose except the hope for a better future, if not for themselves then at least for their posterity.

    To Hell with arrogant Alphas like Donovan. He demands civil war with no intention of leading by example and blames the weak for the crimes of the strong. News flash: WE are not responsible for THEIR behavior.

    More than an ethnic group or geopolitical entity, America is a religion, Protestant Christianity. It disturbs me that the next generation might be the most Godless of any generation of humanity ever and mostly fatherless to boot. Evangelizing them is hard, however, when the entire Church is such an apostate liability that even a devout guy like me considers himself better off without it.

    Regardless, Christianity is where the pushback will happen. The anti-Christian alliance between Communists and Muslims is undeniable; the Elites are obviously not moving large numbers of Christians into Saudi Arabia or Hindus into China. Ethnic strife is the context but the coming war is clearly a religious one.

    Atheist Donovan looks forward to African-style tribalism, no doubt expecting to become one of the new crop of petty warlords, but religion can be just as powerful a unifying force. Discounting God is a foolish thing to do.

      I think you might be misunderstanding Donovan’s point. You get that Americanism is Protestant and Anglo-Saxonism, but too many Americans believe in the magic dirt theory in which “anyone” can become an American. Donovan is saying that needs to end.

      I would agree with you about the pushback if this were the fall of Rome, but as you’ve pointed out there is no central institution to provide stability the Catholic Church did in the Dark Ages. Unless America had another Great Awakening, which could happen, I don’t see America ever becoming great again the way we think of it.

      We don’t need to adopt Donovan’s specific heathen tribal practices. We just need to start acting like every single other ethnic group in the world that looks out for the interests of its own rather than adopting a suicidal, self-hating, altruistic mentality like Americans have.
