"WHAT IS REALLY REQUIRED TO DEFEND ‘THE WEST’ AGAINST THE SUDDEN RISE OF THESE BARBARIC AND ELEMENTAL FORCES IS THE STRENGTHENING, TO AN EXTENT PERHAPS STILL UNKNOWN TO WESTERN MAN, OF A HEROIC VISION OF LIFE..."
IT’S TIME FOR LIBERTARIAN FASCISM
PUBLISHED: 8th August, 2017 | By Richard Heathen
For years libertarians have debated the best way to construct a libertarian social order. From agorism to outreach to minorities, libertarians have debated in length on the best strategy for reaching a critical mass of people, enough to have a society built in their image. Honestly, these efforts have been less than impressive and no where near satisfactory. The reason for this is most libertarians are like children - they project their views on the world instead of taking it for what it is empirically. For instance, it has become very trendy for the rootless cosmopolitans in the libertarian movement to bleat on and on about how there’s not enough women and minorities in the libertarian movement and that libertarians must “diversify” in order to grow. They like to use the existing majority demographic in libertarianism as a whipping boy and go on and on and on and on about how if these white males weren’t so sexist, racist, and just altogether mean they would have their magical and diverse movement where wymyn would rule and there’d be more genders than colours of the rainbow. Oh joy… They just don’t know why that despite all their virtue signalling, ethno-masachism, and self castigation just why these minority groups and bull dyke feminists won’t sign up. This is because of a flawed view of what libertarianism really is, isn’t, and what its roots are. Libertarianism isn’t some moral philosophy that’s compatible with all human beings. It’s not an idea that was created by Jewish thinkers like Rothbard, Rand and Hayek, although they certainly did contribute to it’s modern manifestation. At it’s root it is a legal theory based in the European (specifically the Anglo-Saxon) tradition. Given that context it’s not surprising that the majority of libertarians are of European descent.
Libertarianism in practice isn’t compatible with leftwing principles like egalitarianism. In a libertarian society there would be vast inequalities. It would be a merit based system and if certain demographics were left behind so be it, there would be no communist agitators to campaign for equality. Each man would have the right to disassociate with whomever they liked for whatever reason they chose. This is where modern libertarians become so confused when it comes to their ideas on equality and diversity. This confusion is understandable however, since libertarianism doesn’t have an explicit cultural viewpoint most libertarians just adopt the views of the prevailing cultural paradigm and our culture has been the subject of nearly 100 years of socialist propaganda, and agitation.
Because of their love of decentralization libertarians like to think that by educating people they can create a big enough groundswell to make their ideas popular enough to spontaneously manifest. This is flawed for a number of reasons. Firstly, most people don’t care about politics or political legal theories. What concerns most people is sports, watching Game of Thrones, celebrity gossip and numerous other trivial pursuits. Most people don’t come to their ethics and beliefs through study, reason, or a contemplation of history. Instead, they have their beliefs handed to them by their family, peers, or the culture at large. Some people just aren’t intellectually inclined and it takes time and serious study to understand the libertarian critique of statism or Austrian economics and it’s simply above some people to understand. Many libertarians will have problem with this because our ideas don’t seem that complicated, but trust me, I’ve been to numerous leftist events and many of these people are the dregs of society who want their existence subsidized by the well off. From time immemorial there has existed a group, or “class” for the lack of better term, of people who wanted their existence subsidized by the powers that be. One need only look to Ancient Rome or the French Revolution to see this. These people think that the government should take from the well off to give to them because that’s “fair”.
The second reason the outreach strategy won’t work is because as a whole non-whites aren’t attracted to libertarianism. Yes, yes, I know there are black, asian, and natives who are libertarians, as well as every other racial group under the sun, but I am talking in broad macro-trends. You don’t see a lot of blacks voting for smaller government and low taxes. The early history of Western nations like England the US and Canada (emphasis on early) are all examples of societies with some foundation in libertarian law. All these nations in their founding had a small government and a legal system based on English common law. It wasn’t until the advent of mass democracy that this heritage was desecrated by clients looking to live off the productive fruits of their fellow citizen, often preceded by mass movements lead by communist agitators. It used to be that only white male property owners were able to vote, and that kept the size of government in check far better than mass democracy. This is simply a historical fact.
This still doesn’t answer how to construct a libertarian society. The answer to that is force. Violence. For close to a hundred years libertarians and conservatives have stood by trying to make patient and well rounded arguments in good faith to people who want nothing less then to take their wealth, disenfranchise them as well as their offspring, and burn their civilization to the ground. While you’ve been working on your argumentation ethics and trying to make well reasoned arguments, the communists have been plotting to take power and kill you. We have to take power and enforce our will on the world. This type of talk is unsettling to a lot of libertarians, but it’s a fact. Our ancestors didn’t build great civilizations by sitting around and debating, they went out into the world and took action. They fought and conquered their enemies and they built a better world. The desire for liberty is an expression of what Spengler called the Faustian Spirit of the West. We have to harness this spirit of our ancestors once again and build a new great civilization using what has worked in the past as a framework.
What would this “libertarian fascism” look like? Picture a society where the state is formed like a corporation, the shares of which are owned by noble families. Much like Hoppe discussed in his book Democracy the God that Failed, these men (yes men) would plot a long term strategy and the tactics for managing the resources of the state. There would be decentralized courts that would operate on the basis of libertarian common law, and law enforcement would be decentralized. Police and military would be decentralized as much as possible and both would taught that part of their duty was keeping the other martial organizations in check. As I documented in my film, Hidden Influence: The Rise of Collectivism, social engineering happens and I suspect it will always happen. The church, an institution which played a central role in social life during the greatest epochs of Western Civilization, would return to it’s rightful place as a central social institution around which most social life was centred, and from where people adopted their ethics. As I touched on earlier, people generally receive their views of morality from their community.
Here’s the thing. Leftists already think you’re a fascist. There’s numerous volumes of leftists talking about how libertarians are crypto-fascists, are carrying the water for fascists, or are friendly with fascists. The Daily Kos calls Hoppeian AnCaps “Anarcho-Fascists”. Just Google the words “libertarian fascists” and you’ll see numerous leftists declaring that libertarianism is simply a stalking horse for fascism. Even the irrelevant and senile Webster Tarpley has jumped on the “libertarians are fascists” train. Why are you trying to be friends with these people? They hate you! Oh they’ll play nice if they think that they can use you to further their own agenda but at the end of the day they still hate you and if they ever get their full revolution, they’ll kill you.
Think about it. How are we going to have a society based on private property norms when Marxists have complete control of the universities, when they have infiltrated the highest circles of power? How are we going to have anything resembling a libertarian society when violent communist revolutionaries like Antifa are running around attacking people without consequence? Or when Cultural Marxists like Black Lives Matter are getting millions from George Soros to agitate for social unrest? The fact is we will have to subdue and destroy the violent leftists within our societies before we can have a libertarian social order. We will have to take over using force and they will either have to be deported, imprisoned, or executed before our vision of society can be made manifest. Even then it will take time to undo 100 years of socialist cultural conditioning through the education system. Take a look at my documentary film Hidden Influence: The Rise of Collectivism for a glimpse into that.
Society will have to be remade from the ground up, if we are going to have any hope of creating a meritocratic society based on private property norms, and yes this society will have to be explicitly Western with a white majority. I am not someone who takes a hardline on race. I have no problem with the few minorities who embrace Western Civilization and libertarian principles coming to join it as well as shed their previous cultural identity. The expectation would have to be that you conform, you assimilate. They have a saying where I come from - “fit in or fuck off”. That said, it bears mentioning again that this society would be explicitly European, Western and white.
Libertarians don’t like these kinds of ideas because at their heart they just want to be left alone and leave people alone. This is an attitude that I not only have a great deal of respect for but one that I held close to my heart for many years. Here’s the problem with it though; the globalists, the Marxists, and communists of all denominations won’t leave you alone. They want to kill you, take your property, disenfranchise your kin and your offspring then burn your civilization to the ground. Not only that they want to erase you from history.
I can hear the autistic battlecry of the libertarian purist already “YOU’RE A STATIST REEEEEEEEE”. You do realize that not all states or statists are created equal, right? I’d rather have a nightwatchman state that at least has a marginal respect for private property and low taxation than a communist state that will take everything you own and kill you.
There’s hope though. During a speech at Mises University Jeff Deist declared we need a “better kind of libertarian” and he even used the terms blood and soil much to the chagrin of the rootless cosmopolitans residing in libertarian circles. There’s also the Unite the Right movement which correctly sees libertarianism as being on the rightwing and seeks to build a broad based, rightwing coalition that transcends ideology.
Perhaps the coming conflict and challenges ahead can awaken the heroic spark of Western man within libertarians. Only then can we begin the work of tearing down this decadent and corrupt manifestation of our civilization and building a social order worthy of our heritage. To quote Julius Evola:
“What is really required to defend ‘the West’ against the sudden rise of these barbaric and elemental forces is the strengthening, to an extent perhaps still unknown to Western man, of a heroic vision of life”
