Some Future Plans for 5PT

To really build a compelling response to the challenges of modernity (or post-modernity if it allows itself to be defined at all) from the perspective of the Western diaspora, we’re going to want to look at thinkers who describe, study, and critique the status quo from perspectives beyond the all too common supremacy of equality. (It should not be so that progressives monopolize critique of the status quo, since more often than not they get their way simply by waiting a few years).

In addition to the themes/chapters previously listed as wanting for attention, the Fifth Political Theory (5PT) will seek to draw from perspectives on geopolitics, statecraft, identity, spirituality, and other issues that come from other schools of thought such as the European New Right, Traditionalism, the Alt-Right, Neo-Reaction (NRx), and so forth, not to mention authors who would hardly agree with anything 5PT has to say. Tentatively I would like to include commentary/discussion on authors including Alexander Dugin, Guillaume Faye, Julius Evola, Rene Guenon, Samuel Huntington, Benedict Anderson, William S. Lind, Jason Reza Jorjani, Greg Johnson, Lawrence Murray, and those Hestia Society folks.

Other suggestions are welcome, and I assure you they will be dealt with in a highly untimely manner!

  1. I love what you’re getting at with this project. I know people have (legitimate) gripes with him, but these ideas recall Jack Donovan’s work in my mind, particularly ‘Becoming a Barbarian’

  2. Oswald Spengler’s works might be of some importants.
    Particularly his ‘hour of decision’, which he wrote for future statesmen to navigate the decline and fall of western civilization.
    Nearly everything he predicted has happened on que so far.

  3. I’m pretty well-connected to such circles via Faceberg, and intend to overly promote your posts once the zucc ban I’m currently in expires.
    In the meantime, a peer that I can recommend checking out is Jerry Howe, and also seeing what Identity Dixie is up to.

    Cheers!

  4. Troy Southgate and the National-Anarchist Movement follow the ‘move to the countryside, ignore the state into oblivion’ approach for quite a while now. 5PT should be met with sympathy by Greenline Front types.

    Good ol’ Varg’s living this.

    Rural East Germans have a few things going for them. There are quite a few abandoned farms in S Finland afaik.

    1. I don’t think we can afford to completely ignore the state and mainline economy. If we want to have any wealth/influence/power we are going to need people still hooked into it even if for most of us the best solution is to avoid.

  5. Thank you to everyone working on this theory. It’s written with excellence and also expresses and completes the half-formed thoughts intellectuals in the White Nationalist movement had been having about the nation-state and its future. It’s also clear-eyed and honest.
    It allows us a solid framework of thought in which to conceptualize how our respective nationalisms (French, German, Southern American, British, Pacific Northwest, Suidlander etc…) are distinct but connected and strengthened as a White Diaspora, and that only by the creation of a tribal network and mindset can they be even achievable. The nation may not come, but the tribe must.
    Thanks again, and I am looking forward to further essays on the theory.

  6. Another dimension of this theory to look at is our collective European intellectual heritage and educational philosophy.
    The achievements of the Greeks and their ideas on society, politics, and logic should be central reading. One of my favorite parts of Aristotle’s “Politics” is his observation that mass immigration into a city-state tends to destabilize it and lead to ethnic war.
    Just as classical education imparted a shared culture in pre-modern times (primarily knowledge of Greek and Latin language, history, and ideas) without assimilating anyone, a reconstructed body of thought that empahasizes our exceptional achievements, history, racial distinctiveness, and connection as a diaspora allows any one of us to meet and understand another, even though our religions and folkways will be quite different. And indeed, such global, diasporic contact will be essential to our thriving as an active community.
    I do not mean to devalue or countersignal the likes of Evola and modern alt-right writers, but don’t forget the founders of what we recognize today as western, rational thought.
    (I am not suggesting Latin be a lingua franca again)
