Kaufmann distinguishes four possibilities, which he calls fight, repress, flee, and join.
- “Fight” means attempting to avoid the inevitable, as the Japanese have mysteriously been able to do, by maintaining inherited majorities.
- “Repress” refers to intensified state repression of white opposition to their own dispossession under color of fighting “racism.”
- “Flee” refers to what has long been known as white flight, with whites colonizing areas where they maintain a supermajority. “Join” refers to a Brazilian-style acceptance of admixture whereby whites would continue to exist as a social category even as most become mixed to some extent.
- “Join” is Kaufmann’s own preference: firstly, to convince whites that resistance is futile (hence the inevitability tropes) and, secondly, to assure them their mixed-race future won’t really be so bad.
Kaufmann wishes to “draw the sting of right-wing populism,” but realizes that repression alone cannot succeed. “Conservative whites need to have a future,” he warns, because “even if [they] don’t win elections, they are in a position to obstruct change, damage social cohesion and, perhaps, pose a security threat.”
Once this white pacification is accomplished, however, the West “can begin to refocus on priorities such as democratization, climate change, economic growth and inequality” (which we are apparently not focused on enough already).
