It is a prerequisite that the culture of a people must first be changed in order for public policy of a nation to be altered. This truth was best demonstrated by the Marxist Frankfurt School and how it used critical theory to attack Western civilization, engaged in a long march through the institutions, and caused the unraveling of the moral fabric of the United States.
The easiest way to change culture has historically been—and is still today—by writing texts. Yesteryear, Karl Marx launched the worldwide communist movement by having written Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto, and Adolf Hitler instigated nationalist movements throughout Europe by writing Mein Kampf. Today, formerly libertarian activists who developed their political views by having first read Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, and Friedrich Hayek are becoming Alt-Right activists after reading works by Patrick Buchanan and Ann Coulter, and viewing the content on websites like The Daily Stormer, The Right Stuff, American Renaissance, and the National Policy Institute.
Nonfiction political and philosophical texts are only likely to be read by politically-oriented individuals, and so fictional books and movies are more likely to be read and viewed, respectively, by the public at large. Through the advent of crowdfunding, it is only a matter of time before the Alt-Right begins to produce its own movies (SPLC: “Camp of the Saints: the Movie?”), but until this happens, the Alt-Right can focus on publishing novels through self-publishing companies that provide print on demand services.
Although Alt-Right activists and their philosophical forerunners have written dozens of books, there are four that are hard-hitting that should be read: Hold Back This Day (Ward Kendall), Eternity Beach (Ward Kendall), Reuben (Tito Perdue), and The Camp of the Saints (Jean Raspail).
Hold Back This Day
By: Ward Kendall
Hold Back This Day is purportedly the first novel in the world to deal with the theme of white racial extinction. Set hundreds of years in the future, a tyrannical multicultural, multiracial leftist regime called World Gov controls all of the very much overpopulated Earth and rules with an iron fist. A few whites exist and come to realize that their only hope for survival is to flee to Mars, which World Gov will prevent at all costs. The book received a copious amount of highly favorable reviews, which are listed on its Amazon.com profile.

Eternity Beach tells an incredibly profound and powerfully compelling story of conflict between good and evil—and authentic love and abhorrent hate—which transcends time and space. The complex character development is excellent, and the incredibly adventurous and suspenseful plot is spellbinding. The captivating story is definitely one that stays with the reader long after they set the book down—which is admittedly very hard to do.
In this book, Garrick Fenstad is murdered by a carload of gangbangers and is resurrected from death by alien technology on a planet lightyears away from Earth where he is afforded immortality with other individuals—many of whom are historical figures—who died on Earth due to horrifically violent circumstances. The characters must chart their own destinies and are eager to do so since they have been afforded a second chance at life.
By: Tito Perdue
The New York Press has said of Tito Perdue that he is “without question, one of the most important contemporary Southern writers.”
In Reuben, the protagonist by the same name learns by his mentor—Lee Pefley—what must be done to save Western civilization. This novel chronicles Reuben’s necessary, great, and terrible deeds.
The book received praise from Dr. Greg Johnson of Counter-Currents Publishing and Derek Turner of The Quarterly Review.
The Camp of the Saints
By: Jean Raspail
The Camp of the Saints is a 1973 French novel by author and explorer Jean Raspail. The novel depicts a world wherein Third World mass immigration to Europe leads to the destruction of Western culture and Europeans.
According to the left-wing The Huffington Post, the “grotesque tale” of the “stunningly racist French novel” is “how Steve Bannon explains the world.” Kirkus Reviews called the English-language publication of the novel “a major event.”
Being that Bannon is the White House Chief Strategist and that The Camp of the Saints has influenced Bannon’s political worldview, this dystopian novel will likely influence future politics when it comes to the formulation and implementation of American immigration policy.
