Neo-classical alternative to Modernity

Canadian High Tory writer Gerry Neal hits on a theme in a recent article to which we have frequently returned. He notes that the ideological “opposites”  (Left and Right) of bourgeois society arise from similar materialistic bourgeois values. These values are at odds with the historic values of seigneurial rooted Canada, just as they are with our neo-classical roots in the plantation civilization of the Golden Circle. Neal writes:

despite the tendency of the advocates of each to represent the other as their polar opposite, for both are manifestations of modern thought. The liberal who believes in capitalism and the leftist who believes in socialism both alike think of man primarily as a producer, distributor, and consumer of material goods. Furthermore, both tend to see man on a universal scale rather than in the context of a rooted tradition. Most importantly, both conceive of human history, especially that of the modern age, as moving forward from a past of darkness and suffering to a future of happiness and light. They are both, in other words, progressive.

  1. Since we cannot go back to a plantation system, could you please tell us what our lives would be like today if we could be rid of the current government and create a system that reflects our traditions and values?

    Civilization must have great urban cities. Could you please tell us how our cities would be different than the way things are today in America’s great cities? Of course ideally we would not have blacks and the problems they cause but also we would not have jews and the problems they cause.

    • We can incorporate the values of our civilization which worked. My book on the GC comes out next month I think and will point towards some answers. The two books which will follow will get more into answers. But in general we can propose the values of inequality and paternalism to live better. We did this recently with regards to the problem of dysfunctional ghettos. We can propose, for example, that all able-bodied people who need government assistance should have to work. In return they should be taken care of as wards of the state in a complete manner unlike at present. We can propose that we tackle poverty and crime from a community perspective rather than individually, eliminating one entire ghetto at a time. We would certainly cut off Third World immigration entirely and deport illegals, thus shrinking the size of our cities and increasing the demand for labor. The increased demand for labor would result in higher wages, allowing more women to stay home if they wanted. Declining White birth rates would quickly stabilize. We would also end incentives for those in poverty to have large families since we do not want more wards of the state. And we can reform democracy to ensure those on the dole can not vote themselves more money. We can likewise institute reforms to decrease the political power of urban centers as we refocus on the land. There are too many reforms to lay out here but I will continue writing about them on SF and in upcoming books.

  2. I would say that the important thing in all of this is that Northerners and other outsiders would no longer have a say in our affairs. This would ease the problem of balance of political power considerably.

Working out the competing interests of South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana, for example, would proceede more smoothly as none of them would have competition or interference from Wisconsin or New Jersey. Both of which are hostile and possessed of conflicting interests.
