When establishment people start talking about the interests of the West, they're not talking about helping us or preventing harms. They're talking about the helping anti-Western individuals, including themselves, who sometimes happen to have mailing addresses in the West. And the same often applies to magazines with misleading names such as The National Interest and The American Interest.
Our rulers regularly conflate or confuse their interest in their own egoism with what would be beneficial for the people they rule over.
In general, we should be wary of the word interests. Nonmulticulturalists frequently say the interests of nonwhites clash with those of whites. But the word interests is vague and euphemistic, making it sound as if whites and nonwhites have minor differences in preferences. Writers seldom define interests in the context of their essays.
Instead of differing interests, we should use more accurate words and phrases such as invasions, massive harms, dysgenic hells, mass destruction, beneficence lost, stealth annihilation, globalized totalitarianism, long-term horrors, anti-white genocide, massive opportunity costs, and ideological weapons of mass destruction. While the political record of whites is poor, that record is far better than that of nonwhites, who create mass totalitarianism and mass Machiavellianism almost everywhere they have the power to do so, especially in ethnoracially diverse societies.
