“Donald Trump is a fascist!” is the accusation that has been on many a spittle flecked lip ever since Herr Trump has risen to electoral prominence by advocating such radical courses of national action as enforcing national borders against waves of illegal immigrants seeking to sack the nation via dole dependency and wage compression, selectivity in terms of those who are allowed access to the country, and governing in a manner informed by principles of logic and reason while allowing facts to speak for themselves. Certainly, Trump appears to flirt with reaction: the patriarch of a large family who has run an unapologetically jingoistic presidential campaign, who asserts the nation’s right to sovereignty and to continued existence on its own terms rather than on the terms of the
cuckmunity community of nations. All of this is quite laudable. Unlike the other candidates who stand for suicide by open borders, capitulation, and corporatism, Trump stands for nationalism, vigor, and bellicosity – if and when necessary.
Naturally, to the thoroughly cucked any display of will, fortitude, or pride will seem fascist, preferring as they do to lead a life of abdication, weakness, and shame. The world “fascist” has been neutered & rendered meaningless phrase; it is now an empty slur used to discredit rather than define. Nevertheless, one cannot help but think that a truly fascist Trump, a Trump who fully embraced both the political and spiritual aspects of fascism, who upheld tradition, blood, soil, and continuity would be a wonder to behold. It would be truly galvanizing.
Firstly, there is no longer anything to be gained politically from centrism or moderation. These days, all of the action is at the poles. This explains the popularity of Sanders on the Left and Trump on the Right. To some extent, both parties realize that to remain relevant they must appeal to “extremist” factions within their respective bases, or at the very least, ride the reactionary wave to victory. Secondly, the demoralized populace longs for candidates who embody higher and more noble ideals, so long have they been mired in cravenness and baseness. The people seek to be led by an individual who is more than just a statesman, as it has become abundantly clear that mere statecraft is insufficient to halt and reverse the decline. It is quite fair to say that the people seek a leader in possession of an elevated type of spirit who will drive the nation to achieve something more transcendent.
Liberalism’s failures are becoming apparent even to the least sophisticated who intuit that something is amiss with the world but nonetheless lack the critical tools to diagnose the malady or the words to articulate how it has destroyed the world. People seek genuine values and are instead plied with ersatz ones. This yearning has contributed in large part to Trump’s appeal, and it is something that he ought to embrace more fully. He should become more Right & truly relate to the people in a spiritual way. The average American finds himself in a world that has toppled the noble and the upright only to replace those values with the anti values of pusillanimity and spiritual poverty, to hideous result. Not fully comprehending this, he seeks political and economic solutions. Of course, this extends beyond the merely political. But the current zeitgeist – this thirst for political change – I believe masks a deeper desire for a more profound sort of change. The leader who understands this and engages with this can channel the restless collective energy and redirect it towards more useful endeavors and higher aims.
The people are tired of being given license while the elites strip them of freedom. They are discombobulated by the civilization’s gradual slide into entropy and seek order. The radical individualism advanced by the various merchants of liberalism have resulted in a deracinated people who believe that it is their duty to systematically spay and neuter themselves and in the “bravery” of self mutilation. All which are symptoms of a debased spiritual condition. For Trump to openly take a stand against degeneracy and moral inversion and rootlessness, to call for a cultural reformation that would edify the nation in addition to his political platform would be a
fashinating fascinating development.
