The Environment and the Dissent Right By James Reed
I have been hammering environmentalism in my columns, even though they run across the page, this year, but others from the Dissent Right think that there is a role for environment issues, while I am happy living surrounded by nothing but concrete, which is really a rather sexy substance, once your face hits it enough, from drunk encounters:
“It was not by chance that the modern conservation movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was founded and led by men such as Theodore Roosevelt and Madison Grant who possessed a strong sense of ethnic identity. Although the Left took over the environmental movement by the 1960s, an ecological perspective is inconsistent with the Left’s global universalism whether animated by neo-liberalism or neo-Marxism. Instead, there is a natural congruence between ecology and the particularism of the Dissident Right, an ideology that never loses sight of man as a biological entity belonging to a specific ethny or race requiring certain physical and cultural conditions to survive and thrive. The Dissident Right emerged in opposition to conventional American conservatism that has failed to conserve much of anything. We want to conserve the genetic heritage of our European-American people, the best of our cultural legacy, and the physical environment that promotes our health and wellbeing. Our environmental concerns include both natural ecosystems and the manmade physical and social environments. Humans, with their comparative lack of instincts, need the support of cultural institutions such as stable families, communities, and states. In lieu of innate behaviors Homo sapiens requires the guidance from these institutions for beneficial socialization.
The Dissident Right’s environmentalism puts people first while affirming that man is in no way separate, above, or autonomous from nature. We believe there is a biological foundation for human culture, thus human bio-diversity is reflected in cultural diversity. Unlike the establishment Right we put quality of life before profits and increases in GDP. Unlike the Deep Greens we do not see man as an evil intruder upon nature. While Homo sapiens is a unique species it remains part of the natural order and must work within that order to flourish. As outlined in this essay we embrace elements of neo-Malthusianism, localism, conservation, preservation, and the new urbanism. Philosophical Foundations: Ecologism, Monism, et al. For the Dissident Right environmentalism is not just another policy issue. Rather, what could be called racial ecologism forms an integral part of our weltanschauung. Such a world view incorporates two of the West’s most positive elements—science and idealism. Our ecologism is both rational and romantic. It is located at the intersection of reason and emotion, combining scientific naturalism with a spiritual aestheticism and a faith in the destiny of our people. Racial ecologism places the welfare of our enthy as our central concern while putting its wellbeing within a global context where other races have a right to their own niches.
This ideology is in strong opposition to the post-modern Left and the establishment Right, both of which are disconnected from the reality of the natural world and a holistic view of human societies. Because Homo sapiens is a social animal, humanism, and other hyper-individualistic views, are wanting. The belief that the individual is the paramount unit of society, that each person must find his own meaning and purpose in life is narrow self-absorption that leads to alienation. It also flies in the face of reality. No person, no matter how intelligent or physically and mentally tough, can thrive outside the confines of a nurturing society. Spiritual elements of racial ecologism can be found in Ernst Haeckel’s Monism, Raymond Cattell’s Beyondism, and William Pierce’s Cosmotheism. As a nature-based ideology, evolution is central to our ecologism. Our spiritualism leads us to a faith in evolutionary progress. Non-conscious nature has produced a world of increasing variety and complexity. For our species, however, it is time for humane social selection to replace the cruel and wasteful mechanism of natural selection. We believe Homo sapiens is an animal species. Therefore, human beings should be viewed as part of the natural world. The social sciences need to be informed by the life sciences. Humans are wonderfully creative creatures, but even as science continues to produce marvels of technology and engineering there are limits to our ability to manipulate nature. There are also limits to the ability of human nature to adapt to different social and physical environments. Each ethny has a particular social/cultural arrangement and physical environment suited to its wellbeing.”
Well, that is more like it. This is light years away from the globalist nonsense I have been attacking, getting higher blood pressure from over-drinking, and more arthritic fingers, barely able to type as the year slowly dies.
