    Excellent discussion. I’m rather surprised at Gottfried’s belief that it may take decades for a serious opposition to form, and several centuries (!!) for the US to fall. If that’s the case, why should we worry? Why should we do anything? I disagree with Gottfried and I think the decline is happening now. The opposition is forming as we speak.

    Really great show. One of the best so far. I agree with Gottfried that there will not be any “serious” real-world (i.e. not online) opposition. Left and Right are the same on race and immigration. Third parties have no power now, and that doesn’t look like it is going to change. White Nationalists have too many loons to be taken seriously, and WN’s seem to prefer online fantasy worlds to the real thing.

    Opposition is impossible – Whites will be a minority group within 40 years. As we get closer to that point of no return, it gets increasingly more difficult for opposition to be useful.

    Sunic’s Croatia is probably a better long-term bet than the USA…

    So, Tom, when are you emigrating? Your kind of defeatism (and despair?) is really distasteful.

    I think it’s absurd to extrapolate current trends to predict future reality. The future is open. It’s unpredictable.

    ANYTHING could happen between now and then, that could ensure white survival and predominance in our own homelands: civil war, pandemics, a white ethno-state, nuclear war, bio-warfare, variable birthrates, migrations, population transfers, ‘ethnic cleansing,’ etc.

    I suspect many White Americans prefer a defeatist, fatalistic attitude to our future because the practical alternatives–e.g., revolution, secession, civil war, bio-warfare, mass deportations–are literally unthinkable to them.

    Another fine interview, Dr. Sunic, intellectually action-packed!

    In the beginning you were typing and the mic picked it up. I would suggest moving your mic, getting a headset or something else so it doesn’t pick up the noise.

    If Dr. Gottfried views liberalism as a non-individualist (or anti-individualist) European middle class ideology of the nation-state then how would he categorize 19th century individualists like Herbert Spencer, Auberon Herbert, Frédéric Bastiat, Lysander Spooner, or Eugen Böhm-Bawerk among others?
