The following is an article by a gentleman named Andrew Graf.
Andrew does a variety of different writing endeavors and is a passionate Identitarian.
He submitted the following essay to us and I am very glad to publish it.
It is a very short polemic on the question of Trump and his relationship to this broader ‘movement’, and why it is not worth worrying too much about what he does.
Big thanks to Andrew for submitting it!
PS I have included some memes and images below it for good measure 🙂
Why Trump Doesn’t Matter
by Andrew Graf
There’s a lot of hype around Trump attacking Syria several days ago. Clearly, a lot of us are disappointed, as the fact that Trump won the US elections meant a new hope and a possible shift appeared possible. Here’s a quick commentary on why its all irrelevant though.
Trump’s latest attack can mean anything. It can be 4D chess or he might just be a sell-out. None of that matters.
Trump is not an event, nor a force in this world. He’s just a result of events taking place.
History is cyclical. Everything in the world works like a pendulum swinging from one point to another. Big empires rise and fall, demographics change dramatically, and so on. Nothing is still. Everything evolves.
What we’re seeing now is the pendulum swinging back. And there’s no way to stop it.
Trump is just one of the symptoms of it. Not the cause.
Men in the West are turning right-wing and they’re taking action. I travel around and I see guys getting more and more ‘awakened’ in this manner and they don’t know why. It just feels natural. It’s an instinct of self-preservation.
White guys have had this drive toward self-preservation and masculinity taken away and they’re getting angry. I see it in strong men of all backgrounds. It’s not just one close-knit ‘far right’ demographic. I can bond with guys far beyond just this one traditional niche or stereotype.
They all have one thing in common. They feel the evolutionary call for self-preservation.
Yes, many men submit and stay liberal, left-wing wimps. That’s okay though. Nature has a way of selecting out the weak.
But more and more men feel the need to take action. They feel things aren’t alright. They feel that this is not the way we were meant to live. To be emasculated sheep in a matriarchal world while all our ancestors fought for is taken away.
Whether it’s more men getting red-pilled, or the rise of Identitarian youth in Europe, or the ‘Alt-Right’ in the United States, there’s a movement going on. There’s force being released. There will be more Trumps, more events, more action and more unification. All the result of the pendulum swinging back.
So who cares about Trump. He’s only one of many developments that demonstrate this changing paradigm.
You can’t stop the forces of nature.
