Race and America in 2034

AR Staff, American Renaissance, June 20, 2014

Big changes or more of the same?

What will American race relations be like in 20 years? That was the question we put to a group of hard-headed commentators. The results were 10 essays that we published—one each day—from June 9 to June 20, 2014.

Some of the answers may surprise you, and some may provoke you, but they are exactly what you would expect from American Renaissance: thoughtful, undeceived, and free of conventional pieties.

Here are our authors, in the order in which they were published:

John Derbyshire — “The Narrative” will hold firm.

Paul Gottfried — A real break from the leftist revolution.

Gregory Hood — To the catacombs–for now.

Joseph Kay — The triumph of the boring.

Paul Kersey — Our flag will still fly on the moon.

Tom Kuhmann — More of the same.

Gavin McInnes — We are not doomed.

Fred Reed — Hispanics could go either way.

Richard Spencer — The Howard Beale theory of history.

Jared Taylor — Local communities are finding their own way.

    A fine collection of essays. I especially enjoyed the pieces by Gottfried, Taylor and Kersey.

    Unsurprisingly McInnes and Reed, the writers least committed to race realism, had the least gloomy forecasts for our future.

    Well done, Amren!

  • Tarczan

    I enjoyed this effort by AmRen, but it was lacking in diversity. As a 21st century American white male, I have been trained to have complicated issues such as race and the future explained to me by super smart, uber patient darkies. Guys like neil de Grasse tyson(or whatever his name is), Barack Obama, Eric Holder; even Oprah would do in a pinch. I have learned to expect the magic negro to do the heavy thinking for me in both the print and electronic media.

    I take it “2013” is a typo?

    I’ll put my “two cents” in: Much talk has been about the Hispanics and other “minorities” (for now) and what they will do. For me, the real issue is what Whites will do. Remember: The Soviet Union was the most powerful nation in the world in 1980; in a little over ten years it was gone. Things change. Sure, young people say they are “liberal.” But young people have hardly even begun life in the “real world.” Come on, what does anyone know at 22 or 23? Wait til they look for work; start a family; and, most important, rub elbows with blacks and browns at work commuting and on the street. That will change them. We are nearly all liberal at twenty, and more conservative by forty. A united White population of say 45% will have far more power, than a disunited one of 70%. These commentators need to remember that.

    • Jack Whistler

      What you have described is why marxists work so hard to infiltrate the education system, they know that their unnatural system be it socialist government, racial equality, social justice, or whatever BS they dream of is unnatural; and in order to spread the disease they must seduce the young, before they have experienced the reality of the world.

    • BillMillerTime

      >The Soviet Union was the most powerful nation in the world in 1980;

      That’s simply not true by *any* measure. The USSR was essentially a Third World country with a strong right arm, but even in military power they always lagged behind the US. See The Myth of Soviet Military Supremacy by General Tom Gervasi.

      • Jacobite2

        In 10 years or so, the USA will be a Third World country with a co-ed, cross-dressing military. On a scale of 1-10 for military power, the US will be at about a -3 (as in Kosovo, where we used our firepower to aid our enemies).

    • maxonepercent

      I think most people in college are liberal, but when they get out into the real world they wake up pretty quickly.

  • Nevsky

    A good mix of perspectives. And it was good to have semi-dissenting views from McInnes and Reed just to have us look at another side of the coin from a race realist perspective. Personally, I have a very apocalyptic view of how this is going to turn out, and it is shaping some of my decisions for the future. Reading these essays helps me realize that I need to wait a few more years before gauging how things are going to turn out. A lot can happen.

    • Mike Lane

      Western civilization has seen worse: Invasions from the Middle East, Asia, the black plague, etc. The Marxist Machine took years to come to power. If we want success we need to see change happen from the bottom- up. We must organize. Just when we begin to see ourselves as a living, breathing group we must then define the direction and aims of our movement (via a manifesto, books, publications, films, etc.).

      The mistake we’re making (as are most right wing organizations, parties, etc.) is trying to work within the current political sphere. It’s so broken that it is like dumping water into a broken vase. Now I have no problem with trying to become political, but alone it is futile.

      Instead we must go with metapolitical routes:
      Syndicates,
      home schooling,
      bleed the system of welfare,
      establishing like-minded friend bases, neighborhoods,
      etc.

      • Jacobite2

        Yeah. Western Civilization turned back Mohammedan invasions with metapolitical ‘routes’? Actually, I don’t remember that. I thought it was killing Mooslums all day and all night until the buggers were gone, one way or the other.

        • Mike Lane

          I don’t see how that’s even relevant. We live in a very different time. At this stage you really can’t organize a crusade against Islam. We need to work back a little bit. First, Westerners must organize under a preservationist mindset. Then we can organize against Islamization.

          • Jacobite2

            The Mohammedans have sure as Hell organized a crusade against us (Euro-Christians). Exactly why can’t we reciprocate? We not only have nukes, but out at Fort Detrick, MD, Dugway PG, UT, and a couple other places, we have some real effective tricks to solve the Mohammedan infestation for good and all..

          • Mike Lane

            You misunderstand me. I agree 100% that Islamism is absolutely a threat that must be dealt with (mostly by use of force, though I do think peaceful deportation methods could work to some extent). What I am saying is that you cannot rely on our current Western “democratic” governments to save us. I think we have a much better chance organizing beyond the political realm (whether this be through like-minded communities, underground syndicates, organizations, etc.) and just start focusing our energy toward fostering a culture of our own (via the options above) that will unify all racially/culturally aware whites under one coherent set of ideals. That way, when a societal collapse or revolution occurs, we will essentially be independent of the government and self-sufficient while everyone else is looting, dying, starving, etc.

          • Jacobite2

            That’s what makes horse races. Besides the Irish monks of 1,300 or so years ago, the list of small bands of people saving civilization simply by riding out the storm is fairly short. The much higher-percentage strategy is to gather a sizable following and annihilate the “Other” before you are down to hiding out in the woods like deer.

          • Mike Lane

            I absolutely agree. I never said numbers were limited.

          • Jacobite2

            Correct. I assumed the numbers would be small because the idea of large numbers of people living under-the-radar in communities, underground syndicates, organizations, etc., is counter-intuitive. I also assume that any such group coming to the attention of the authorities would quickly come under attack. Could be wrong, though. In this day, recall the measures al Queda had to take to avoid electronic spying from Western countries (in your scenario, the ‘bad guys’ will be the ones with the satellites and the pro hackers, not us). If George III had had the NSA, I’m not sure the Sons of Liberty and the Committees of Correspondence would’ve lived long enough to do any good.

          • Mike Lane

            Our current regime just let go of 5 high ranking terrorists for a traitor, which tells me their balls have dropped off. I honestly think, with enough Americans who value either the old ways, gun culture, and the rest of Americana, organizing an “Americana People’s Defense Corps” isn’t super difficult.

          • Jacobite2

            Man, I wish I lived where you do. I see no such motivation in Mid-West suburbia.

          • Mike Lane

            I do too. But where I live I can easily travel to the city (which is, for the most part, a cesspit) or I can go to the country. It’s in this part that the good ol’ Americana lies. I’m actually pretty thankful I live where I do. I wasn’t so sheltered from urban scum that I was naive, nor was I so deep in the city that I become chronically depressed. I can’t even walk in a Wal-Mart anymore without wanting to cut my wrists afterwards- all the fat, disease ridden, baby mommas and white trash. The countryside is beautiful, though, and so are the people.

            I must agree, though: Suburbia, at least where I live, is either filled with old people too decrepit to fight or spoiled kids who wear such expensive Hollister clothes their parents are in debt up to their butt. It’s examples like this that make me realize we need some big collapse in order to wake people up.

          • Jacobite2

            Unfortunately, I live in the heart of suburbia. The level of Leftist background-radiation here is astounding. Tribute to the indoctrination our public schools have pounded into kids’ minds for 60 years. Barry Goldwater wouldn’t get 20% of the vote here today. And AuH20 is not my idea of a Rightist, at that.

  • Ringo Lennon

    All America’s problems are because of diversity. Nobody likes the other guy. Homogenous countries are the best and happiest. Whoever said “Diversity is our Strength” was lying or crazy. A lot of white dopes actually still believe in this crazy slogan. I take pride that I never bought into that baloney. That’s because I was chased out of my neighborhood by “diversity” when I was young.

    • Jacobite2

      One symptom of societal dis-integration is a failure to reproduce. Europeans all over the world are showing this sign. Logically enough, the cure for societal dis-integration is societal re-integration (i.e., ethnic cleansing). Unfortunately, ethnic cleansing is non-PC to the max. Also, unfortunately, a dis-integrated society lacks the will to crush the PC police and facilitate ethnic cleansing. A death-spiral. Historically, this impasse is overcome by a small, dedicated, violent, group of people who brush aside the masses and make things happen. The American Revolution fit this mold (Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, Tom Paine), although with the best PR operation, by far, in history. The public can be grateful later.

  • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

    A good collection of articles. Jared Taylor’s is the most accurate, in my opinion. In 20 years, it will be more of the same [email protected], different day, so to speak. Once Hispanics are a dominant group, though, they will put a stop to the preferential treatment of Blacks. Whites will generally be more racial realist in 20 years, and more aware of keeping clean, safe, homogenous communities as such. I agree with Jared that such communities will be retirement meccas, with an emergence of retirement homes offering impeccable service, provided by bright, attentive, and clean cut young Whites.

    • Black Plague

      I agree. As a whole, I honestly think we will be okay. Not great per se, but not bad either. Asians will be fine too. Hispanics will have improved, as a whole, through a combination of hard work/ambition and gaining political power. Blacks will remain at the bottom of the barrel, though much further down. And yes, no way the Hispanics will care less about their plight.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I want to read articles written around 1980, and their predictions on race relations in 30 years (2010). The ones who were spot on are the ones we should listen to.

    I seem to recall lots of utopian predictions from back then, and Africa’s problems will be solved by now.

    • Black Plague

      Africa’s problems would have been solved if not for evil Whitey. Don’t believe me, just ask the nearest liberal.

  • maxonepercent

    I think the best way to predict the future is to look at the past. In 1994 the US was on top of the world in every way imaginable. We had just won the cold war, the economy was booming, the middle-class was strong, etc. Since then we have suffered a terrorist attack of unimaginable destruction, entered into two costly and ultimately failed wars, our economy has been in constant recession for years on end, approximately 40% of the workforce has been unemployed for more than 9 months, race relations are worse than they have been since the 60’s, and so on and so forth. Things have changed dramatically, we just don’t easily recognize it. I expect that the next 20 years will bring equally dramatic changes. I don’t know exactly what those changes will be, but I am certain that the current status quo will not survive.
