reviving cultures and unscrambling eggs

I saw a comment recently that seems to sum up a popular viewpoint on the alt-right. The gist of the comment was that it doesn’t matter if our culture gets destroyed because a destroyed culture can easily be revived. The commenter went on to argue that on the other hand the effects of immigration cannot be reversed. You can’t unscramble the egg.

In my opinion it’s actually the other way around.

A dead culture cannot be brought back to life. But undoing the effects of immigration is only difficult if the political will is lacking. It has been done, many times. There is the example of the ethnic cleansing of Germans from eastern Europe after 1945, or the population exchange in 1923 in which Greeks were expelled from Turkey and Turks were expelled from Greece. Unscrambling the egg is possible, has been done and can be done.

Once you lose your culture however it’s gone forever. You’ve lost everything that made you you. If you lose your culture it just doesn’t matter what happens after that. For example if German culture is overwhelmed by American culture then Germany ceases to exist. After that point the colour of the inhabitants of that geographical region of the American Empire formerly known as Germany doesn’t matter in the least.

I understand concerns about mass immigration and I share those concerns. I’m totally opposed to mass immigration. I’d like zero net immigration for my country. Immigration is an important issue. But it’s not the most important issue. Cultural integrity is more important. If you look at Britain their problem is not immigrants. Their problem is that they have thrown away their own culture. They have committed cultural suicide. That process began in 1945. At this point even if they stop all immigration it won’t help because Britain can’t be saved because it no longer exists.

And white nationalism cannot work and it cannot help because it ignores culture. Culture is the one thing that really matters.
