Is The “Western World” even worth defending anymore? Is Putin correct in his denouncements of “The West”?
The Western World was first to see the rise of the modern Republic, a series of Universal Charters and Declarations on Human Rights, a credible interest in the protection of private property and capital as an end and not merely a means of governance, and so on.
Life is no paradise, but in the late 18th century, life outside of the West was invariably and indisputably worse. Although the introduction of novel livestock and disease to the American continent decimated millions of Native Americans before contact was ever made, this was not an intentional “depopulation strategy” as some provocateurs would have you believe.
The Trail of Tears, a series of forced removals, sometimes at gunpoint, of Native American nations from their ancestral homelands in the Southeastern United States, resulted in several thousand Cherokee deaths, and this was also very evil. I am not saying that life was not brutal and unfair, but it was not as bad as at other places at that time in history.
Progress is slow, but life certainly chugs along in a generally positive direction. Yes, the African Slave Trade was a horrid, irreparable crime against humanity, yet almost nobody talks about the “Slav Trade” and how it went on for much longer than the Anglosphere’s interest in African bondage.
Slavs have been the premiere object of desire for most chattel slavers throughout human history, and almost none of this history of the plight of Slavs achieves anywhere close to commercial limelight in today’s Social Justice-obsessed Civil Rights movement, which, ironically is now energized by new-found Islamomyopia (a strange obsession with protecting a billion strong asecular culture whose even moderate sycophants stone women and homosexuals to death for show). The irony of this coincidence should not surprise you. Will the Slavs be required to free the West from chains of its own making?
It is now patently clear that the Western World is crumbling. The institutions that allowed it to flourish, such as regulated monogamy, traditional sex roles, Patriarchy, “The Protestant Ethic”, Classical Liberal philosophy, and most importantly, freedom of speech, are all falling to the wayside. Its allies, Russia and The Philippines most prominent detractors among them, no longer respect “The West”, and its cultural sphere of influence is dwindling.
It is time for Slav Shift, a new paradigm that recognizes that what truly made “The West” great is alive and well today, strangely enough, in the Orthodox Post-Soviet states of the Eastern bloc, the home of the Slavs. I can only dream of a world in which Bolshevism did not usurp that last great bastion of Christianity. Rest in peace, blessed House of Romanov.
In the end, all we can do is become more cognizant of the fact that we as Slavs are all that remain of the traditional “Western” world, and aim to protect our values from those who would have them taken away. Slavs, from Russia to Czechia to Croatia and to all those living elsewhere abroad, must unite behind Neomasculinity and traditional living in order to free the West of its daily expanding shackles.
It’s my life. I know I won’t live forever. I just want to live while I’m alive.
