Poor Spencer Sunshine need not have worried. The Alt-Right ended up self-destructing largely on its own initiative. When I became involved in the Alt-Right during its initial phase, it was a high brow neo-Nietzschean movement influenced by European conservatives such as Ernst Junger, Carl Schmitt, and Alain De Benoist. At the time, I was hoping the Alt-Right would move in the direction of something like ATS or National-Anarchism. However, things went in precisely the opposite direction, and the Alt-Right eventually drifted into reactionary 1920s style white nationalism, then into Alex Jones-like cartoonish behavior, then into Trumpism, and finally into neo-Nazism. Charlottesville was the worst possible publicity stunt the Alt-Right could have staged, i.e. failure on all counts. R.I.P., Alt-Right. Death by suicide.
