These are a few excerpts of Greg Johnson’s Preface to North American New Right, vol. 1, which will be published in November (no ellipsis added between unquoted paragraphs):

North American New Right began on June 11, 2010, as an online journal, the “blog” of Counter-Currents Publishing. The goal of the North American New Right is to lay the metapolitical foundations for the emergence of a White Republic (or republics) in North America.
This project is motivated by consciousness of an existential threat. European peoples, both in our mother continent and scattered around the globe, now live under a cultural, political, and economic system that has set our race on the path to cultural decadence and demographic decline. If these trends are not reversed, whites will disappear as a distinct race.
The incomparable light we bring to the world will be extinguished, and the greatness of our achievements will be preserved only in fragments, like the scraps of literature, shards of pottery, and shattered artworks that survived the wreck of pagan antiquity.
We aim to halt that process here in North America, but we also wish to learn from and contribute to the struggle of our comrades for white homelands around the globe.
“Metapolitics” refers to what comes before the political, i.e., the foundations of politics, including both (1) political ideas, i.e., the intellectual case for a particular political order, and (2) a concrete community that embodies those ideas in the present and will serve as the seed of a new political order to emerge in the future.
Before the White Republic can become a reality, it must first be a fantasy, a dream, a vision of a possible world.
