Back to Basics? - Part Four

Back to Basics? - Part Four

In the second and third part of this series, I was suggesting how we might need to return to some 'normalcy' through promoting our wider values and our policy positions a little bit more often than we currently tend to do. 

They may not always be viable or immediately workable, but when I read the last British National Party manifesto (soon after its launch), I remember thinking it was really quite good and that it suited my tendencies. It had me sold to most of the positions anyway, or the notions behind them.

They may not be perfect in some peoples eyes, but I did not think they were all that bad myself. In fact, numerous policy ideas and positions have actually been stolen by all three main parties over the years. Some of them quite blatantly.

Back to Basics? - Part Three

Back to Basics? - Part Three

We all know that the cultural agenda has to be transformed somehow, but is it possible?

We all should also know the sheer power and might of the "influence" that pushes away from our desires and wishes, so we should therefore know that it is a tall order to achieve.

We may not be able to beat the 'left-wing' nature of society that has been bred (or which has become so malleable and omnipresent throughout society)......but maybe we are looking at it wrongly, maybe it is time to use it to our advantage rather than pit ourselves as automatically opposing it all just because something or other is deemed 'left-wing' or 'liberal'?

The ruling class keeps control by setting the cultural agenda of the country, top down through the political and legal administration, through the schools and universities and churches, through the media, through the family, and through the underlying assumptions of popular culture.

There is also some reliance on the use (or threat) of force to silence criticism (as recently seen at Gatwick airport where David Jones was intimidated) but the main instrument of control is the systematic manufacture of consent from people who know of nothing else or do not know of any other ways things could be arranged.

Back to Basics? - Part Two

Back to Basics? - Part Two

Although I would have liked to kick start this article on a positive note (especially considering what I had said in part one) I do think we have to come to accept that much of country we thought we knew has already gone. There is no escaping this reality. No amount of clever words or wishful thinking will make it any different.

We have to come to terms with the idea that we have currently lost the battle for this country and therefore the battle for our traditional views of how it should be both comprised and organised, whether that be demographically, culturally, educationally, financially, or in terms of manufacture, legislature, religiously, morally, structurally.

Rather than resign ourselves to defeat though, we then need to ask ourselves what we can possibly do about launching a new counter attack on the victors - in order to reinstate ourselves and our legitimacy.

'They' may have won the immediate battle, but the complete war is not over yet. The tectonic plates are shifting under their feet as they flit from one self made crisis to another. The wheels are coming off their cart as things are having to accelerate faster and faster.

Have we got the solutions we need in order to tear down the current hegemony being waged against us (or take over from it should the juggernaut come to a halt)?

What do we need to sell and promote which counters their actions? What have we got to offer? Where are we going? We seem to have lost our way and our sense of direction.

Back to Basics? - Part One

 Back to Basics? - Part One

When it comes to figuring out where British nationalism (as a counter-culture) should head in the future, I always tend to struggle.

Although I try and recollect various concepts and ideas which have resonated with me, it seems that no matter how many times I try and make a start at compiling them together into a coherent mass, it becomes impossible grasp hold of.

Therefore, what I will try and do instead is create a compendium of things which may (or may not) be worthy of further consideration. They are not necessarily all my own insights or observations, but ones from a range of sources and a range of individuals too.
