The recent marches and conflicts are becoming more prevalent, with people being hurt and killed. The general reason given is that there are Nazis and KKK organizations that operate under a doctrine of hate, but why here and why now? No one has even attempted to explain why these events are becoming more common and why they are happening right now. Although it is easy to label protestors as Nazis and white supremacist, the fundamental questions have not been answered. The astounding part of the whole question is that there seems to be very little interest in actually looking for underlying reasons that motivate people to leave their comfortable, overstuffed chairs and march under a common banner. I attempt to answer the question about who these people are and explain the grievances of these novice protestors. During my investigation, I found that my conclusions were driving me toward the very uncomfortable position of white patriarchal nationalist. Through my journey, I hope to shine a light on the problems facing America today and to show why these protestors are not just a natural consequence of their environment but an expected result. In other words, given the position that America finds herself today, protests and conflicts are an expected outcome. More to the point, conflicts are expected to grow and become more widespread. I do not ask you to join me in my expedition, but by examining my trajectory of thought, hopefully you will understand the fundamental nature of what is happening to our society and perhaps be able to construct operational solutions that are so desperately needed.
