H/T OD. Speaking of, in case you aren’t already, you should make Occidental Dissent one of your daily reads. Hunter Wallace has been absolutely killing it lately.
His case is simple: The Alt-Right is filling the void.
You know how that goes, you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
He also makes the case that the decline of religiosity among younger blacks directly corresponds with an increasingly racialist militancy among them, viz: BLM.
Where I think this analysis whiffs is that it does not consider the people and groups who have become more egalitarian as they have become less Christian.
However, to the extent that Beinart is right, I don’t think it’s a matter of Christianity demanding egalitarianism as a spiritual exercise, it’s that Christianity as an institution (“Churchianity” — Vox Day) prostrates itself to Jewish social and cultural power by itself demanding egalitarianism as an institutional imperative. Decreasing religiosity among the kind of people that would have been seriously institutionally religious Christians in past decades parallels an increasing loss of trust in secular institutions. And that’s a function of the institutions of all sorts becoming commissars for egalitarianism.
