There is an interesting discussion or debate taking place between Hunter Wallace (of Occidental Dissent) and Greg Johnson (of Counter Currents) over Southern nationalism (SN) versus White nationalism (WN). You can follow the discussion on the following links: here, here and here. I use term ‘White nationalism’ in the title and this article because that is how both its supporters and opponents regularly refer to it. However, (and if the name of this website weren’t enough of a give away, this will expose which side of the debate I favour) races are not nations. No major race on Earth is united by language, culture and religion, for example. All human races are multi-national. This is not to diminish the importance of biology (and contrary to what your sociology professor says, race is biology, not just a social construct) but rather to put it in its proper place. As a friend of mine commented recently, race is just one aspect of a nation – I don’t know why that’s so difficult for WN’s to grasp.
Johnson is undoubtedly an intelligent man but his mentality is definitely West Coast, not Southern. I’ve enjoyed some of his podcasts (not sure why he quit doing them) but essentially I think Wallace is right – WN proposes a proposition nation. Races are not nations. And White people are never all going to unite and create a country based on the fact they are all White some day. As Wallace asks, where would such a country be located? What language would the people speak? What would be the religion there? What would be its cultural norms? These sort of questions reveals the propositional nature of the idea – and that is essentially what it is, an idea, whereas we are a people. Even if we are soon to become a minority in our land, we’ll still be a people, the same way the Kurds are a people in Turkey and Iraq and Syria. The fact that they are not a majority in those countries doesn’t mean they are not a nation. They just don’t have an independent state of their own… yet.
