The AltRight term received a lot of attention recently thanks to a US presidential candidate targeting it in a speech. This has given a lot of air to the movement, further accelerating its capture of the right. As the New Right captures hearts and minds, the AltRight will drop the Alt and simply become the Right.
NRx has received some recognition in the past few years, as part of the Dark Enlightenment. But its effects have been far outstripped by the AltRight. And that’s OK, because of the division of labor of cognition. They play separate, but related, roles.
Humans exist in classes which are formed on a biological basis, and which are most easily divided by IQ, though this is nothing more than a convenient marker. At the bottom of this post I have provided Curt’s original post and my slightly modified version of it. This is a table of the various classes of the New Right. I think it would be valuable to further complete this mapping of the members of the various classes because we need each class to repackage and present the same message in terms that their class can interpret. We also need to create hierarchical linkages in order to move the messages downstream effectively and spread them throughout the Right.
NRx is Middle Class
According to Curt’s table, NRx is middle class. Some might take offense and argue that it is upper-middle class. Sure, the leaders of NRx are likely upper-middle class, but the average NRxer is solidly middle class. Software engineering is a middle class profession. People who run teams of middle class professionals are upper-middle class (CTOs, CIOs, CEOs, Directors, etc). The middle class is not a salary range: it is an ability range. The middle class are those who have the ability to engage in the system of production. This is why the middle class seeks liberty: because given freedom to choose their means of production, they will choose and perform, because they can. As an aside, this is why working classes are less interested in liberty, because they simply can’t capitalize on it within the system of production to nearly the level of the middle class. And the lower and under classes have zero interest in liberty, because they are completely unable to capitalize within the system of production; they desire security, not liberty (and that’s what self-interested politicians trade them in return for votes).
We can argue about the parameters of classes, and we should. We should define them. We need to understand their roles and to define the behaviors that makes one a ‘good’ member of any class, because these behaviors and actors do exist in every class. We just need to incentivize them properly, which is why we must define and understand them.
The middle class has certain behaviors which make them middle class. They follow norms of propriety. I was right when I wrote that NRx is Right Brahmin Signalling. From the SJW encyclopedia: “Brahmin is a varna (caste) in Hinduism specialising as priests, teachers (acharya) and protectors of sacred learning across generations”. NRx is a group of teachers and priests, solidly middle class and exhibiting middle class mores and norms, such as the prohibition on ridicule, mockery, libel and slander.
AltRight is Working Class
The working classes do not share the middle class values and prohibitions on ridicule, mockery, libel and slander. I have seen very clearly the revulsion of NRx to the coarse meming of the AltRight. The NRx aspersions about ‘populism’ of the AltRight. This is simply the middle class reaction to working class norms.
The thing is: the middle class needs the working class. They will do the jobs that the middle class just won’t do. Say, for example, openly attack with vitriolic hostility the enemies of Western Civilization using Pepe and Le Happy Merchant memes. Or say, engage in ‘high energy’ physical activities which raise the cost of the status quo on the controlling elite. Once the cost of the status quo is high enough, then that controlling elite will accede to the demands of the Right. Who will formulate these demands? Ultimately, the aristocratic class will, with large input from the scholarly classes. Who will implement these demands at the local levels? Obviously, the people who organize all production, the middle class, under the direction of the upper middle class, with the ‘real’ work being done by the working classes at the direction of the middle class.
Moral License, NRx and the AltRight
We have a problem with moral license. Typically, our Churches have granted us moral license to defend the West, but the modern Churches are corrupt and useless. Our current set of priests will never grant us moral license to defend ourselves. Waiting for them is suicide. Alternatively, our politicians could grant us moral license to defend ourselves, but they are corrupt and useless and waiting on them is suicide.
The working class (and the lower classes) are the first to feel the affects of diversity. They are not nearly as insulated from it as the middle and upper classes. For this reason, they were the first to grant themselves moral license. This is the AltRight: the working class which has declared war on the Left and on those who pretend to be our leaders (the cucks) who refuse to grant us moral license to self-defense.
Their weapon is (currently) mockery, ridicule, libel and slander. This weapon is off the table for the middle class for normative reasons, thus it was unavailable to NRx, which instead uses Continental and Cosmopolitan philosophy, using myth and critique, respectively. Priests use myth and teachers use critique.
We are in the process of granting full moral license to ourselves for the purpose of defending our civilization. NRx will become an integral part in granting this moral license, or it will fade into irrelevancy. They will use narrative, myth and critique to justify our Holy War for the survival of our people, or they will become nothing.
I’m currently working on ideas for reforming Christianity. NRx is full of the religious, but they have neglected this topic, possibly because they do not understand that this is an essential step, and that only we on the right will undertake it. Does that sound ambitious enough for you?
There are many excellent religious scholars among NRx. Their job is to re-invigorate the Germanic Initiatic Oath within Christianity: Don’t lie, Don’t steal, and protect the commons (every man a sheriff, reciprocal insurance). They must also understand clearly the Morality of Transcendence: man is directing his own evolution, ‘transcending out of savagery to become closer to God and to live in God’s will’ (I am speaking in your voice here, NRx). They should create the narrative, using the Bible, that our new era of truthful scientific language is demanded by God (don’t lie)(Testimonialism), and our prohibition of parasitism (don’t steal)(no welfare state) is God’s law, and that we must become closer to God by promoting the best of our species, and limiting the worst (transcendence/domestication).
If NRx has a place in this movement, it is to reform the Church and grant ourselves moral license to defend Western Civilization, by any means necessary. The AltRight and the working class are preparing to march.

Marginalization as Obscurantism
The pseudoscientists use the words ‘marginalization’ and ‘marginalization’. From Social Exclusion (on the SJW Encyclopedia):
Social exclusion, or social marginalization, is the social disadvantage and relegation to the fringe of society. It is a term used widely in Europe and was first used in France. It is used across disciplines including education, sociology, psychology, politics and economics.
Social exclusion is the process in which individuals or entire communities of people are systematically blocked from (or denied full access to) various rights, opportunities and resources that are normally available to members of a different group, and which are fundamental to social integration within that particular group (e.g., housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement, democratic participation, and due process).
Alienation or disenfranchisement resulting from social exclusion can be connected to a person’s social class, race, skin color, educational status, childhood relationships,living standards, or personal choices in fashion. Such exclusionary forms of discrimination may also apply to people with a disability, minorities, LGBT people, drug users, institutional care leavers, the elderly and the young. Anyone who appears to deviate in any way from perceived norms of a population may thereby become subject to coarse or subtle forms of social exclusion.
The outcome of social exclusion is that affected individuals or communities are prevented from participating fully in the economic, social, and political life of the society in which they live.
Marginalization is an overloaded term used by social pseudoscientists to frame the group under discussion as victims. Marginalization is a process that is performed upon someone. This brings up the concept of agency: the argument is that victim classes lack agency (the ability to act). Marginalization is such a term that removes agency from the groups under discussion. This is the loading. If the victim class lacks agency, then logically it follows that there are agents acting upon the class (the victimizers). Marginalization is defined by the social pseudoscientists as a form of victimization or oppression, which is the process of an agent acting upon those who lack agency.
These loaded terms: oppression, victimization, marginalization are obscurantist techniques: they are an attempt to hide something? But what?
Humans can be roughly divided into classes. We build social hierarchies based on these classes. Class or caste is a common feature of many societies today, but in the West there was a reaction to aristocracy. The middle and lower classes murdered their upper classes (the aristocracy) and then attempted justify this murder with a lie: the denial of the existence of class.
Marxist theory contains an attack on class and advocates re-organization of every aspect of culture and society to remove any differences and achieve the Utopian Classless Society. The Founding Fathers sought to create a form related to a classless society, a middle class society. This was the American project: building a new country on a new continent out of only the middle class and higher. In the New World, more than a 1/3 of the newcomers returned home to Europe, they were the lower classes who could not produce on their own. The Aristocracy of the Old World sought to reduce the numbers of the lower class through selective breeding. This was achieved through manorialism, where only those capable of production (the middle class and above) were granted land, which was essentially equivalent to being granted breeding rights.
The Marxists attempt to achieve their goal by lying: there are no classes. The Founders attempted to achieve their goals through a combination of lying and incentive: all men are created equal and no welfare for layabouts. The Aristocracy attempted to achieve their goals through a combination of lying and incentive: we have the divine right to rule and these are our rules.
Quick Note on All Men Are Created Equal
Keep in mind that the Founders were reacting against Rule of Man (autarchy)(discretionary rule). What they sought was Rule of Law. Any system lacking universal standing, meaning fair and rules based treatment under law, which instead has discretionary rule for some and law for others, then that system cannot be called Rule of Law. For RoL to exist, then all members must be given treatment based on institutionalized rules (law). I believe the phrase ‘all men are created equal’ is an attempt to justify universal standing using religio-moral language, because the Founders at the time lacked the ability to articulate universal standing and its fundamental necessity for the creation of institutionalized order: Rule of Law.
Stop Lying About Class
It’s time to end the lies about class. Classes exist. We have the science. We can measure IQ, which is a rough approximate of class. All men are not created equal: We can create rule of law without lying. The Utopian classless society is an unachievable dream.
Rough Table of Classes (Curt Doolittle’s)
140’s revolutionize INTELLECTUAL (Professors)
130’s synthesize and communicate UPPER (CEO’s etc)
120’s solve and design UPPER MIDDLE (engineers, scientists)
110’s calculate and organize MIDDLE CLASS (white collar workers)
100’s interpret repair and operate (lower middle upper working managerial clsss)
90’s operate, report, but not repair.( midddle working class)
80’s operate (middle working class)
70’s dig ditches and clean. (lower class)
<70 = underclass
The lower and underclass are not ‘marginalized’. They have not been victimized. They have not been oppressed. They are not lacking agency and been acted upon to be placed into a lower position. They were born as lower and underclass.
There are no ‘marginalized peoples’. There are only those classes who cannot function within the system of production and which must be addressed in some way in order to make a functional society.
There is no ‘systematic blocking of access to rights and opportunities’, there is a biological inability on the part of the lower classes to participate meaningfully in the system of production.
Ending The Game
Of course, the end goal of the use of social pseudoscience is always the same: parasitism. To use words to extract resources from society at a discount (it beats working for a living). It doesn’t have to be this way. We can recognize the existence of class and then deal with it. There is no shame in being born in the lower classes, just as there is no shame being born in the upper classes.
The Founders and the Aristocracy were on the right track: the goal is to create a society made up of middle and upper classes (minimizing the lower class components through incremental suppression). This is the upward development of the species. This is true progress: increasing the genetic capital of a population through selective breeding. This is the domestication of man. It is self-directed evolution. It is transcendence. (Note: this strategy is available to all the peoples of the world. Africans and Arabs have just as much genetic potential as the Northern peoples.)
It’s time to be honest. The strategy of the West is that of transcendence. The average Western high IQ is the result of self-directed evolution, of the suppression of the breeding of the lower classes. The strategy of the modern ‘progressives’ is inverted, where the result is to suppress the breeding of the middle and upper classes, to redistribute their wealth to the lower classes, and to import millions of lower classes for short term political gain. This is a suicidal stratagem, and one that the men of the West have every incentive to prevent, by any means necessary. This is the crux of the current political turmoil, as millions of Westerns begin to intuitively grasp the situation. The modern progressive strategy will have the result of devolving the West back into savagery, and could potentially devolve it into a new Dark Age. Europe was on the cusp of an industrial revolution when the last Dark Age overtook it. It took a thousand years to recuperate. A new Dark Age is not beyond the realm of possibility.
aka “The soft bigotry of low expectations”
This is the realization that Democrat politicians accept the existence of lower classes, which is de facto acceptance of race realism/HBD, and they actively exploit the lower classes for votes, while giving lip service to equality. Republican politicians actively reject the existence of the lower classes, attempting to force the lower classes to behave like the middle class. On the Republican side, this is an idealistic denial of HBD, and the reality of races and that various groups have classes in varying proportion. Africans currently have a larger underclass than whites, the Democrats realize this and exploit this condition for political power.
The Republicans notice this ‘racist’ behavior of the Democrats and cry foul: ‘dems r real racists!’. In truth, the Democrats are actually being more realistic (about race and classes) than the Republicans, who blindly pursue their Utopian Christian Marxist classless brotherhood-of-man society. In essence, the charge of ‘dems r real racists’ is a charge that the Democrats are not holding to the faith of Marxism and the classless society that he envisioned.
The idea that DR3 is a ‘conservative’ argument, made by ‘true conservatives’, is laughable. It’s in essence, the purest Marxian Utopianism. It is an attempt to hold the Democrats to the ‘true Marxist’ vision of a classless society, which the Republicans already hold. Complaining that “we can’t get to the classless society because the Democrats are in effect exploiting the class structure”, is really simply blaming the Democrats for not plugging their eyes and ears like the Republicans and chanting the mantra “All men are created equal! All men are created equal! All men are created equal!” As they chant, the Republicans will continue to slide off the cliff into political irrelevancy, all the while telling themselves that they are the ‘real good guys’.
The solution is for the Republicans to grow up. Quit being idealistic children. Simply tell the truth and drop the pretense of equality. Recognize and accept class differences and national differences and civilizational differences. Recognize and accept being called ‘racist’ by the Democrats who already accept these class differences (the irony) and build workable solutions. Be pragmatic. Exploit the realities of the battlefield.
You know: take your own side. Win.
A wise man once said “We never win anymore”. Saying stupid thinks like ‘DR3’ is a big reason why.
