    National Review Lashes Out At “Latter-Day Calhounists”

    by Hunter Wallace



    Jason Lee Steorts has written a lengthy article and a blog post at National Review decrying the rejection of “the Founding vision” by a “virulent challenge from the Right.” This challenge is said to be coming from the “latter-day Calhounists” who are the Alt-Right. This is the first time that “conservatives” have connected the Alt-Right with the Southern Reactionary Enlightenment.

    I’m happy to illustrate that such a relationship does exist:


    The quality of people I am reaching is much higher than I ever did with a forum.
    I'm now at the top of the racialist intellectual community in the United States.
    I was a nobody when I ran The Phora.

    1. The Freedom Shrine The public schools of my youth always had a wall on which had been mounted something called the “Freedom Shrine.” The Freedom Shrine comprised replicas of various great documents of America, such as the Declaration of the Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Lincoln’s Gettysburg and second inaugural addresses, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Maybe you have seen a Freedom Shrine as well; the National Exchange Club sells them to civic and educational institutions across the country.

    I have been thinking about the Freedom Shrine because I have been thinking about what America is and who should get to be an American. Our answers to this deep question imply much at the surface of politics. Matters of immigration and refugee policy, for instance, depend on who we think should get to be an American, or at least get to be in America. In the election of Donald Trump and kindred European populisms, we have seen reassertions of ancestral loyalties — of geography, culture, religion, ethnicity — against multiculturalism, whatever that precisely is. Public soliloquizers have wondered whether this amounts to a resurgence of nativist bigotry or is a meet reply to an unjust demand that particular peoples give up aspects of their particularity for the sake of a political abstraction. Perhaps a bit of both, the proportion varying with the issue and the individual?

    So we should also think about this question: What is, and should be, the relation of liberal democracy to the cultures and peoples that have tried to practice it? Closer to home, what is and should be the relation of the Enlightenment beliefs that inspired the founders of this nation to reflect that “all men are created equal” and endowed with certain “unalienable rights” and on that basis to wage a revolution, to the people who enjoy the fruits of that revolution today? The Freedom Shrine is a useful cultural artifact from which to approach such questions — or is it a useful political abstraction from which to approach such questions? Intriguingly, it is both — both a collection of documents and, in my case, a childhood memory, something I saw on the way to the lunchroom and associate with an emotionally and aesthetically ambivalent olfactory memory of the cafeteria lasagna. And that is an important clue. If the Freedom Shrine can be simultaneously a cultural artifact and an abstraction, then America can be simultaneously a people and an idea. But what kind of people, and what idea? How are they related? And might the details help settle arguments lately had?

    Default Our [Idiotic & Feckless] View: Stop America's breakup

    Our [Idiotic & Feckless] View: Stop America's breakup


    The United States has become two nations in one land, and it seems to be poised for a breakup.

    We don’t trust each other. We don’t like each other. Each side sees the other as a petty and untrustworthy partner who probably is cheating. Sometimes it even seems as though we have become enemies.

    Our relationship had been a productive one. We used to be able to work together. We got things done. We took care of each other. We created the National Park System, Social Security and Medicare together.

    We have overcome a lot: depression, recession, war, terror attacks and millennial fears. We carried each other through and bounced back from each setback.

    We’ve had our disagreements, but we were able to set them aside in order to do what needed to be done.

    Our devotion to our union was stronger than our differences of opinion or our loyalty to our side.

    But things changed. The trouble has been brewing for a while now, and it just seems to get worse. Politics stopped being the art of the possible. Governing stopped being about what could be accomplished. It became a game of tit for tat. The concept of the loyal opposition disappeared.

    Each side has insulted and abused the other. The friction has left raw spots, bruises. These hurts have been nursed by each partner into resentment and even hate.

    Each side has made mistakes. Each side has tried to go it alone.

    The Democrats passed the Affordable Care Act without the other side. That was a wound the Republicans swore to rectify. Now they are in the middle of another mistake, attempting to dump “Obamacare” without reasonable debate or input from the other side. But that effort is foundering. And that offers an opportunity for America to change the tune.

    We must tell our senators and representatives to stop, to reconsider, to reach out to the other side to make common cause for the public good.

    Sen. Claire McCaskill and Sen. Roy Blunt, you come from either side but represent one state — our state. You should lead the chorus. Start talking, introduce co-sponsored legislation, stop singing the breakup song. Join your voices, show that you love our state and our nation by proposing and debating a health care measure that can solve the problems with the health care law. It doesn’t matter what you name it, just get started.

    We don’t want to see this union torn apart. Let’s do what it takes to strengthen it.
