One of the big problems in any resistance movement, be it alternative finance or immigration control, is the lack of ability of White people to unite. Why?
According to Brett Stevens:
the answer is internal competition, so that we struggle against each other without recognising our common interests. External threats thus become secondary. Stevens thus rejects the idea of pathological altruism:
“More accurately, our problem is individualism, or people deciding that no one can say “no” to them and as a result, social order, values, standards, heritage, religion and all other systems of order above the level of the individual go out the window. From this, people invent altruism, because it is a way to show they are “good” without having to do good except in a symbolic role.
Think of politicians kissing babies, or public donations to charities. Your older brother getting you ice cream once to make up for all the times he pounded you flat in the last few weeks. Cubicle workers showing up on the weekend to demonstrate loyalty after screwing off all month. This is symbolism, which like language can be used to manipulate, in lieu of doing the deed the symbolism refers to.
