The True ‘White Privilege’

Srdja Trifkovic, Chronicles Magazine, June 17, 2020

The left talks often about so-called white privilege. Being “white” is a privilege, in that it is a privilege to be a biological, spiritual, and moral heir of the best civilization the world has known, from the Old Testament and Homer via Rome and Constantinople, via the leftward turn of the Renaissance and the heresy of the Enlightenment, to the melancholy fulfillment of the grim warnings of Dostoevsky and predictions of Spengler, all amidst unprecedented scientific and technological advancement.


{snip} To paraphrase a memorable Italian, better one day of Mozart than a hundred years of Jay-Z; better one day of Milton than a hundred years of Maya Angelou and her ilk’s “intensification of life.” As we hum Schubert’s Lieder while attending to our daily chores, let us recall that there is but one standard of reason, evidence, and objectivity. There are no multiple self-validating systems of perception, feeling, thought, and evaluation, each associated with a racially, ethnically, religiously, or sexually defined group. That is a pernicious cultural-Marxist lie, evil and murderous. There are permanent principles of justice, freedom and beauty that apply to all human beings as such, as Kafu knew, as the late, lamented Jean Raspail’s last-stand non-white hero understood. These standards exist, regardless of race or ethnicity.

We the Privileged reject Joe Biden’s addled decision to “choose truth, not facts.” It is not merely idiotic; it is dark and evil. It is on par with the dictum that “justice trumps the law.” We know that it is the well-known path that leads undeviatingly to Robespierre, Stalin, Pol Pot, Tito et al. Of course, we may end up under the Antifa guillotine, or before the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) firing squad, for telling the truth about the life and death of the Martyr of Minneapolis, or for unmasking the BLM freak show, or the role of George Soros in making it possible. For the Privileged it is both dulce et decorum to die for a good cause and shameful and intolerable to linger on in silent servitude to the disciples of Mammon, Muhammad, Marx, or MLK.

We Privileged Whites know exactly what is going on, but unfortunately we lack a coherent strategy of resistance. Some pledges of principle are in order. Hereby I aver:

  • Not to take the knee: a satanic quasi-religious gesture that demeans me and my people, whatever the promise of better treatment in the reeducation camp.
  • Never to accept, even tacitly, that the random melange of mutually disconnected multitudes inside America’s borders is anything but a curse, the exact opposite of what makes a nation strong.
  • Never to cease fighting the monstrous dictum that we should not feel a special bond for any particular country, nation, race, or culture, but transfer our preferences on the whole world equally, and to our enemies first and foremost.
