Category: The American right
I have already critiqued Steve Sailer’s idea of “citizenism” but, although I do not wish to start blogging again on a regular basis, I note that Sailer once again has been promoting this viciously destructive idea - this time in The American Conservative. Therefore, I have a few more things to say on this issue.
Sailer is illogical or he is mendacious. He states that Taylor’s white nationalism is doomed because white Americans are non-tribalistic individualists, and then he himself recommends his own form of tribalism - a collective group identity as “American citizens”. Very well, but if white Americans are so individualistic that a collective group identity based on actual biological kinship is doomed to fail, then why should a collective tribal identity based on the legalistic fiction of citizenship succeed?
Further, Sailer asserts that “citizenism” would entail a degree of personal self-sacrifice (see below). White individualists will sacrifice for the American tribe - which includes guys like Sharpton - but not for their own white tribe. In other words, tribalism for whites is bad or “impossible”, except for the type of tribalism promoted by Sailer.
I’ll begin with an apology to Geoff, who was off the starting line a lot quicker than me with a response to Steve Sailer’s second instalment of his answer to Jared Taylor. But I found a great deal in the Sailer argument that merited detailed attention, and a dedicated post was the only way to do it justice.
As we shall see, Sailer’s argument is, unfortunately, pretty lame. The more salient quotes follow as indents, with my responses beneath.
Does anyone know the history of the 1965 law? I just can’t figure out why anyone would be in favor of such a law. Who were the backers for this sort of thing? Who lobbied for such a bill and why?
A comment on this Amren post, which somehow slipped past Ian Jobling’s eagle eye.
Is there anyone out there who is still so innocent ... even at Amren? Or is this Alex Linder in playful mood?
