Today I met with a local nationalist who goes by the pseudonym Western Survival. We first spoke, or met, through one of Millennial Woes‘ “Millenniyule Hangouts” last December. I cannot remember the occurrence too vividly — those streams were a blur to me given all the different people and all the contacts I made (over fourty in a matter of three days) — but thereafter WS met with another participant in the streams, Knightmarez, when over a weekend together they actually visited Exeter. After that, Millennial Woes, in conversation with them, brought up the fact that I live here, and that leads us to the present day.
It was a pleasant day. Quite grey and cold, with occasional streaks of sunlight bursting through the clouds, but not too windy nor was it raining, which made a nice change. We met around 1pm and walked around the city, had a drink and something to eat at the quayside, and conversed, and before we knew it, three hours had passed. We bode eachother goodbye and agreed to definitely meet up again in the future.
One of the things we spoke about — keep in mind, dear reader, that this was the first time things have been translated from the internet into reality for me — was the formation of an organisation of sorts; a sort of south-west English nationalist/Right-wing group of some description. I must add that I myself am not an ethnonationalist in the same fashion WS and others are, my conception of nationalism or patriotism is consequential of self-affirmative thinking in accordance with philosophy; it is secondary; consequential. There is a good post on Gornahoor titled “The Notion of an Elite” which goes into detail explaining the Traditionalist or spiritual perspective in relation to “what is to be done.” The people of the Occident will be preserved and so forth, but that comes as a consequence of more vital questions, it is not the primary point — the crux of the matter — itself.
So, this group which could surface will not be some rip-off of National Action or (remnants of) the National Front, et cetera — to also consider is the fact that we are all (to include the other people WS is in contact with) young men who spend a lot of time on the internet; we do a lot of reading, debating and discussing. We have a strong “thinker’s” streak to us due to how we have come to the conclusions about the world we have, and so forth. This group will likely have a nationalist bent to it, simply due to the other members and the fact that nationalism, or pro-Englishness in this case, acts as the lowest common denominator in a sense. My input, and of course the input of potential others, would go beyond this and into philosophy, history and metaphysics, hopefully.
Say we started a group not dissimilar to the National Policy Institute in America, currently headed by Richard Spencer, we could organise a conference or a talk, and if so, the things explored and so on would go beyond the basic “We must save the white race!” sentiment and related rhetoric. This is was one of mine and WS’s points of disagreement to a degree; for him at this point, the Fourteen Words is a complete maxim, but for me it is not — to clarify, I am not in total disagreement with the statement, I simply believe it is incomplete. But this is not a graver issue than some would assert; we can disagree with oneanother and debate the topic, we can learn eachother’s arguments and a dialogue can come out of it: something which is enhancing and useful to the noviate, to the people who wish to explore such a topic. The point stands that we are in a similar position, in a world which seeks to uproot us from our selves, a world which seeks to destroy the human spirit, or at least deny its nourishment. Spoken-about matters can easily become the be-all and end-all for us modern Westerners with our fancy gadgets and high I.Q.s; the internet especially lures us into simulating our experiences: thinking or reading about things instead of doing them, knowing them, living them. This is what the formation of a group which has a tangible physical presence partly remedies, one which organises meet-ups, conferences, and so forth. Even the merely social aspect of this is a great positive, especially for those still fumbling about in the dark by themselves, waving their fists in anger at the world without any guidance or support.
As for political activism? I am not too sold on such things, marches et cetera; though I understand what draws people to such activities, I do not believe them to be actually worthwhile or of much tangible value, at least at the present in Britain (in the future, such events will be of a much higher significance) — note the difference in symbolism between National Action’s recent demonstration in Newcastle, England and P.E.G.I.D.A.’s recent march in Cologne, Germany. Irrespective of what one makes of either organisation, it was the latter which, running off of the steam the notorious New Year’s attacks generated, had a deeper symbolic meaning. The situation, as it were, is differentiated significantly country by country, which means that the same actions will not have the same results country by country; this must be kept in mind. But we are now getting into the future regarding “The Happening” and so on; back to the here and now…
What is the purpose of a potential group, then? One could ask the question: “What is the purpose of the Alternative Right?” and face the same answer. This answer is simple and will upset some, but nevertheless, the purpose is the purpose itself. “Agents of Change” is an interesting concept because often, when people think of any change in our present scenario, they believe one of two things: either change will come through conscious, undestined action, or the opposite; unconscious (at least in the moment), destined action. I suggest that the two can be the same, insomuch as conscious action is actually the fulfilment of destined change from the human perspective.
The very emergence of the Alternative Right and parallel phenomena is indicative of the times a’ changing. To relate part of what I am describing to the broader perspective regarding the abovelinked article on Gornahoor, as well as a conversation I had with Paul Andersen which can be found within a short compilation of some of my writing, we may quote René Guénon‘s East and West,
The outer society … is in this case no more than an accidental manifestation of the already existing inner organization, and the latter, in all its essence, is always absolutely independent of the former; the elite does not have to take part in struggles which, whatever their importance, are necessarily outside its own domain; only indirectly can it play a social part, but this makes that part all the more effective, because to be the true director of what is in motion, one must not be involved oneself in the movement. Here, then is just the inverse of the plan that would be followed by those who would want to begin by forming outward societies; these societies must merely be the effect, and not the cause; they could only be of use and there could only be a real point in them if the elite had already been brought into existence…
I believe it was Mark Citadel of Citadel Foundations who, in conversation to me, said that he believes we will live to see the end — or at least the beginning of the end — of Kali Yuga. A potentially polarising statement, but I must concur. And even if it is untrue as some would argue, one’s actions should be dictated by that — similar to the question of collapse. Whether “it” (The Happening or the end of Kali Yuga) occurs or not, there is no reason why it would dictate right action; afterall, right action or virtue is not circumstantial, it is ongoing. One does not stop acting in a good or positive manner as a means to an end, it is the end in and of itself.
Thus, the contacting of like-minded people, of active and outward endeavours which encourage upright behaviour — self-reliance, honesty, creativity, et cetera — is appropriate whatever the situation is externally. Details obviously need to be worked-out, but the point stands that the making of right actions in life stands beyond society and politics and I would encourage every young man experiencing dissolution, inner disharmony and so forth to transmute that friction into something which stands beyond their mere selves, in the form of religious experience and/or political actualisation. As the phrase goes, οὶκειοπραγία — “to each his own.” Some of us will have no use for others, many will (quality over quantity, in any case).
This notion of actualising clearly relates to recent observations by many people that this could be the year of “The Great Shuttenning,” as it has been called. It is definitely the point now to consider bringing things into the world, especially if you are living in mainland Europe. The evident political polarisation amid millennials is significant as it speaks of great dissatisfaction with the liberal status quo, undercut as it is with progressivism; people are increasingly tired of the mercantile, bourgeois mentally which, for varied reasons, stifles any and all genuinely dangerous change — change, might I add, needs to occur properly, but, to quote my wise old grandmother, “If things don’t change, then they’ll stay as they are.”
