Novelist, commentator, and AtlRight co-editor Alex Kurtagic joins Richard to discuss his recent speech at NPI's fall conference in Washington, DC, "Masters of the Universe."

For at least 50 years, nationalists in America and Europe have been accumulating mountains of data and sound intellectual arguments regarding the dangers of egalitarianism, multiculturalism, and mass immigration. And yet, the nationalist side has been consistently losing the battles for political power and, more important, the hearts and minds of Western peoples.
The reason for this is not that the Left won the argument, but that the equality zealots were able to use the power of the state and similar institutions to reconfigure how we see the world, how we learn about the world, and even how we think about the world. Western peoples were enveloped in symbols and values that have emotional, pre-rational resonances. And the global Left became Masters of the Universe.
Far from descending into despair, Alex calls those gathered to begin looking beyond rational argumentation and sober warnings of destruction and begin developing a worldview and symbology based on our own values of Tradition, Identity, and Hierarchy—which are, we shouldn’t forget, more inspiring than what the Left has on offer.
Alex Kurtagic’s presentation was, for many, the high point of the conference. It is something that must be heard and experienced, not just read.
