Further to what I said in my previous post about Yahweh. In his exchange with a Jew, Spencer gets the gist of what we have been saying about Christianity. For example, on 1:11 he speaks about the destruction of Greco-Roman art by Judeo-Christians and on 1: 18 we hear from him that ‘the origins of Christianity are entirely Jewish’ and a minute later: ‘The difference between Judaism and Christianity is like this Menshevik vs. Bolshevik stuff’.
1: 35. Spencer said: ‘We function better’ in paganism after mentioning the Dark Ages. Although I doubt he has read us, Spencer is conscious about the subject of the masthead of this site, the essay about Rome against Judea and Judea against Rome:
You have to understand that the triumph of Christianity was a class revolt; it was a revolt against a people who had achieved a higher, a superior level of civilisation. And it always has been that way. It always has had that germ in it—even if it was adopted by aristocracy. Christianity… if you read the words, if you take that text seriously it is full, it is dripping with class resentment of the rabble, fighting against a people who are rightly superior, who are more beautiful, more physically imposing and domineering, who have achieved higher levels of military prowess and scientific acumen and civilisational glory.
Then after 2: 19 he said that the early Christians ‘fundamentally shifted the collective psychology of the white race, to a point that I think it’s very difficult for us to think outside of Christianity’, something that includes ‘cultural Christians’, i.e., secular westerners.
What Spencer says next hits the nail about why racialism has been a failure. It has to do with the resistance among whites, even white nationalists, to transvalue values back to Aryan normalcy: ‘What we’re doing now is going to be small, but in many ways it is going to resemble the early Christians who adopted this creed’. Indeed, since Christian ethics has invaded every atom of the Aryan soul, now we need the same process in reverse. In the Q&A after a listener asked Spencer: ‘What is the destiny of whites and how to achieve it?’ he answered:
Huge things: I would say this, I think disobeying Yahweh has to begin there… The Aryan spirit is best articulated through domination and Empire… basically kicking asses across the world… That is who we are, fundamentally. And Judaism, the Old Testament… is revered for the wrong reasons. I think that it is good to use it as a kind of moral compass in reverse: that the things that displease Yahweh… are exactly the things that we should do… We [whites] are the villains on some level. We are that person who other peoples fear [the blond beast]. We have to embrace that aspect of ourselves if we are going to free ourselves.
Then Spencer mocks ‘the poor victim of the little Christian lamb. That’s not going to work. Lambs get to be slaughtered. We should be the ones slaughtering lambs’ (this he said after 2:32). Ten minutes later he sees today’s nationalists as folk preaching to the choir, and uses the metaphor that they are trapped in a hamster’s wheel, telling to themselves the same old story over and over.
If white nationalists started to speak like that I would be a little more optimistic and would stop trolling them on this site!
