Domine, Quo Vadis?

“There is no obligation upon any man to passive obedience, when his life, his liberty and his property are threatened by footpad, assassin or statesman.”

- Ragnar Redbeard.

Ragnar Redbeard was the nom de guerre of a mysterious Social Darwinist who, some 110 years ago, authored “Might is Right.” Described in its day as “a vitriolic, racist hymn to the doctrine of force," and "... surely one of the most incendiary works ever to be published anywhere," Ragnar’s screed retains its power to induce menstrual and rectal haemorrhaging in all but the hardiest of men. In our hyper-individualistic, post-modern day, the words of this self-styled Viking reaver are about as welcome as the jaws of Fenris. I’d suggest the religious avoid Ragnar’s words as they would anything endorsed by Anton Szandor LaVey - much less plagiarised for his Satanic Bible.

Ming the Merciless and Anton LaVey...)
Ragnar’s philosophy is brutally pragmatic. The world belongs to the powerful, who draft laws to keep the herd servile and craft lies to enslave their weak minds. Through strength, a man might rise from the herd to dominance, his ambition rewarded with wealth, women and power. Life is struggle and those who reject this principle will themselves be rejected by life.

As his berserker rage wanes, Ragnar makes way for Darwin’s charge: "Inferior organisms succumb and perish or are enslaved. Superior organisms survive, propagate and possess." Undeniably, this is the way of nature. Only the naïve or deluded will deny it to be the way of the world. The only question is whether it should be.

I’d say the answer, inevitably bound in slave-morality when negative, makes little difference. Whether a Christian king, Marxist dictator or egalitarian president rules, the laws of nature remain unchanged. The only worthwhile measure of governance is the degree to which it adheres to reality. Even the most noble, or apparently noble, deviation therefrom leads only to greater suffering. The oft-cruel ways of Mother Nature, that occasional cackling crone, must be acknowledged just as her fairer aspects are admired.

But we have forgotten such lore. Modern technology has partially repealed the “red in tooth and claw” tyranny of the natural world, particularly in Western societies where even slaves possess slave-machines. Advancing beyond machinery, genetic science might soon provide us all manner of crudely-illustrated marvels:

Q: What do you get if you cross an octopus with a gentleman of Negroid extraction?
A: Dunno, but it sure picks cotton like a motherfucker!

However, all such present and future technologies, and by extension the “liberated” societies thereby enabled, are predicated on a single thing: cheap oil. One 42 gallon barrel of crude oil contains the equivalent of 25000 man-hours of hard, physical labour. Really. When the oil runs out, as all finite resources do, we’ll have to start putting the man back into man-hour. It remains to be seen exactly when the oil dries up, and whether we can develop a replacement energy source.

Anyone who believes existing energy “alternatives” can prevent the energy crisis, likely also believes alternative medicine can cure epidemical AIDS. Thus the tenets on which modern urban, industrial civilization is based, infinite progress and limitless growth, are revealed as mere assumptions, not reality. This is heartening to those of us who value our EGI; our ancestors, contemporaries and descendents, above pleasure-seeking.

The easy life is a product, often literally, of an unsustainable system based on consumption. Ultimately, self-indulgence is the morality of this order, hyper-individualism the philosophy. No longer needing slaves to live as sybaritic lordlings, the elites spread the lie of equality and invite dysgenics. No longer needing to band together to survive a hostile world, the elites outlaw our ties of blood and invite race-replacement. The inferior “survive, propagate and possess” in defiance of Darwinian law, as the elites conspire to breed an ever more docile, domesticated herd.

Already showing warning-signs of instability, if not outright collapse, this disintegrating, Leviathanesque superstructure can’t endure indefinitely. Whether through dysgenics, immigration or both, an increasingly idiotic and immoral population are its rotting shorings. To say nothing of the changing environment and depleting resources which are its foundations; a system built by intelligent, altruistic whites cannot be maintained in their abscence. The hideous hag will have the last laugh on all of us. In the words of Ayn Rand, “One can evade reality, but one cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.”

I expect these consequences to be tumultuous, likely a resurgence of tyrannical, autocratic rule. According to Oswald Spengler’s Decline of the West, capital replaces faith, and Caesar follows capital. Interestingly, South Africa has seen an extremely accelerated version of this model: from the multi-cult of Mandela, to the capitalism of Mbeki to... Well, I’ll reserve my Ave to the coming Imperator, who hardly deserves to be spoken of in the same paragraph, or indeed article, as Julius Caesar.

Violent totalitarian regimes, when led by a charismatic, strategic genius, have much to recommend them. They inevitably unify the populace, usually by emphasising racial solidarity. Racial struggle always supersedes class struggle, according to Spengler. Next, the nation is enriched through cannibalisation of foreign elements. Yay for power, loot and expansion! Boo for inherently unstable, hyper-masculine, aggressively-thrusting Rapocracies though. The weakness of such tyrannies is that they tend to die when the tyrant does, and depend largely on his character. Brilliant leaders who can achieve lasting victory are rare, almost invariable is the power-mad tinpot,

overreaching himself to brings ruin and humiliation upon his people. From such ashes, the nation eventually arises anew on the wings of faith: the only strength to which the poor and powerless can lay claim, and no less a strength for that.

Returning to the greater Western context before I trigger a mass exodus of whites from South Africa;

democracy’s fatal flaw is it’s susceptibility to corruption. This inevitably brings down the prosperity its earlier purity creates, the ensuing poverty and power vacuum giving rise to authoritarian rule. If Western economies crash, we’ll likely see a resurgence of Fascism, or even Nazism... Which, like a particularly tacky prostitute who fails to swallow her chewing gum before fellatio, would only half-suck. While such systems provide in abundance for love of people, they’re poison to love of freedom. A notional Axis victory might be heaven for German, Italian and Japanese EGI but it’d be hell for free speech, free association, free market values, scientific freedom... And, yes, the freedom to (occasionally) indulge in illicit sex, harmful drugs or decadent rock ‘n’ roll - preferably all three at once with some donkey-on-midget porn thrown in for good measure. In other words, a victorious Axis would usher in an era as imbalanced as the one resulting from the Allied and, more specifically, Soviet victory.

Now, why have I raised such matters of Social Darwinism and Fascism? Well, because they relate to the quote so kindly provided by our esteemed, shield-biting

Mr. Redbeard. And why did I choose such an inflammatory emcee to introduce me? Well, because his particular words:

“There is no obligation upon any man to passive obedience, when his life, his liberty and his property are threatened by footpad, assassin or statesman.”

are not only sound common sense but the unassailable moral high-ground, Satanist associations be damned. Why then, when I repeat them to the more pallid of my white brethren, perhaps accompanied by a call to resistance against such threatening menaces, am I denounced as an evil Fascist or devilish Social Darwinist? Because fuck them, perhaps? Quite likely, but let’s examine the causes more thoughtfully.

The Social Darwinist charge is easiest to answer, with a simple admission: I am a Social Darwinist. Not exclusively in the manner prescribed by old Red Rag though. After all, his views were based, among other things, on a version of Darwinian theory since greatly improved by such luminaries as Watson-Crick, Hamilton, the Wilsons, Dawkins and Salter, to name but several. R.R.’s teachings extend to the singular, competitive alpha male and little further. For example, cooperation is just as crucial as competition to survival. Admittedly it doesn’t make for the same high drama as war for survival, waged by all on all. The point is - “Biopolitics” being taken - my “Politics of Science,” complete with a more evolved species of ethics than dog-eat-dog, represents a practical, workable framework for human society. How can humanity organise without knowledge of humanity?

Of course, there’s no shortage of idealistic, unrealistic frameworks out there. I consider all such, from Feminist penis-envy to Marxist success-envy, to be contemptible denials of reality. Their proponents get butt-hurt by their inferiority in some regard, then ascribe the associated aspect of the universe to some great evil, be it Chauvinism or Capitalism. And just so no one thinks I’m cheating, I’ll include ze Juden as another “great evil.” But don’t take my word for it. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. If anyone can mention a consistently successful matriarchal or Marxist society, I’ll accept them as solid ideologies. The converse applies. Feel free to reject Social Darwinism if largely homogenous societies which organise themselves meritocratically, in accordance with human nature, are shown to be consistent failures.

I stress homogeneity as it is vital to social cooperation, as liberal scholar Scott Putnam was dismayed to discover, officially. I can’t resist adding that Putnam was a political science professor at Harvard, whose “diversity dean” has just flounced off in an indignant huff over lack of diversity. Apparently academic racism and chauvinism, in the form of entrance exams and the like, were restricting the influx of ethnic exotica.

And I stress a “may the best man win” ethos of economic competition, with perennial losers provided social welfare in the form of exile, as the only way to regain the strength and virtue of my people. Ahem. Our people... So, any takers? One Communist utopia or one “Realist” dystopia and I’ll pack it all in.

At this point, some clever dick will likely shoot up his hand for Nazi Germany. Nice try. The Nazis didn’t come close to organising themselves meritocratically - or else why were Jews, who have the positive stereotype of being smart businessmen, excluded from commerce? Why did Hitler make refugees of top-notch Jewish scientists, not least of whom Einstein, who denounced relativism and offered relativity? Put your hand down, Rabbi Lapin, I’m speaking rhetorically.

As for Nazi compliance to race-realism and that bone I just won’t drop, Salterian EGI, well... Hard to know where to begin. Aryan Superman’s nemesis was the black athlete, Jesse Owens, who egged his face at the Berlin Olympics. Aryan Superman’s Kryptonite the IQ test, which Hitler banned as clearly biased toward the sinister Jewish intellect in some diabolically subtle way.

The truth is that Aryanman wasn’t a serendipitous scientific superhero like Spiderman or Hulk but rather a mythical superhero, like Thor or Conan. Aryanman’s implausible origin story concerns Jungian racial archetypes, occultism, the lost lands of Hyperborea and Ultima Thule, folklore and so on, ad nauseum. He was a social construct just as transparent as post-modernity’s Egalitarian Social Justice League. If Aryan pride were grounded in science, its claim wouldn’t be absolute superiority but rather a healthy balance of intellect and athleticism, aggression and caution. Unparalleled martial prowess and a history of cultural achievement represent similarly factual claims.

Sadly, Nazi Germany understood Darwinian evolution little better than many today. They based their claim to racial superiority on anything but scientific fact, then applied scientific theory, crudely, to their society as an excuse for genocide. In so doing, they set evolutionary thought further back than any amount of blatantly manipulative, anti-science propaganda. The indiscriminate backlash to all things Hitler served as a kind of Heimlich (Himmler?) manoeuvre to the egalitarianism which so beguiles us with its charms today, even as we choke on the masticated remnants of Stalinism.

And don’t even get me started - too late! - on the effects of violent hostility between Teutons, Slavs, Anglo-Saxons to Caucasian EGI... What a tragic fucking loss for Europe. And I’m not sure how close native Germans and German Jews are genetically, but I’m betting on “quite.” As Hitler’s positive reforms drastically increased Germany’s carrying capacity, the Holocaust was definitely overkill. And yes, that was flippant but what of it? I’m disrespectful on matters of race, religion, politics, sex and death. The Holocaust gets no special treatment from me, at least until the Jewish lobby start clicking my Amazon book links.

Finally, does anyone believe the Nazis were in favour of a free-market economy? I’ll give the clueless a nudge: “Nazi” is an abbreviation of National Socialist. Socialist, whether it suffixes nationalism or prefixes democracy, defines the kind of bloated, meddling government which constipates trade.

All this ranting about Nazism and I still haven’t addressed the Fascist charge. Well, this is perhaps left to Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. (2) This book is a godsend for anyone even remotely conservative and weary of being labelled a Fascist or Nazi as a result. His discussion of the book, available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 parts on Youtube, is well-worth watching - if only for his dismissal of common liberal arguments as “bone-snapping stupidity.”

Modern liberals, by and large a green, sticky bunch aloof to mere fact, have no clue that Fascism is a form of revolutionary Socialism (indeed, Hitler wanted to call his party the Social Revolutionary Party) which ends in Totalitarianism. Frequently, modern liberals have no clue that their own ideology is increasingly influenced by and tending towards Socialism, not to mention “totalitarian” oppression of free speech and free market principles in the furtherance of its broken ideals.

Let’s take a few notable points from the book, and elsewhere:

- The archetypal Fascist, Benito Mussolini, was a card-carrying Socialist from at least the age of 18. As an amusing aside, Mussolini had this to say in 1933: “Race! It is a feeling, not a reality: ninety-five percent, at least, is a feeling. Nothing will ever make me believe that biologically pure races can be shown to exist today.”

- Mussolini remained a member of the Socialist Party until 1914, when pro-war sympathies led him to left-wing militarism. Along with other revolutionary syndicalists and former Marxists, Mussolini founded the synthesis of these ideals in 1919 as Fascism. Fascist policy was a mixture of radical left, moderate left, democratic, and liberal measures.

- Stalin famously said: “Fascism and social democracy are not opposites, but twins.” Of course, that was before the end of the war... During which, Stalin and Hitler were allies, at least until syphilitic madness perhaps took hold of Hitler's mind. Sorry about the syphilis thing, Neo-Nazis! And before I offend any modern liberals, by “social democracy” Stalin meant “reformed socialism,” which... Well, which is modern social democracy, so be offended equally to the goose-steppers, I guess.

- Long before allying with him, Hitler was inspired by Mussolini. Fascism dovetailed nicely with Hitler’s Aryanism, giving us National Socialism. It’s even said Hitler stole the Nazi salute from Mussolini, who in turn lifted it from the Romans.

- Hitler’s rival, Gregor Strasser, spelled out the Nazi position quite plainly: “We National Socialists are socialists, genuine national, German socialists.” Gregor gave his name to the Strasserism, the leftist, mass-action, arbeiter-based strain of German National Socialism. Which was Socialism... Socialist fucking Socialism, capiche?

A limited rundown of some of the things Nazis believed in:

- abortion
- euthanasia
- gun control
- free health care
- guaranteed jobs
- banning smoking
- alternative medicine
- organic farming
- vegetarianism (Hitler)
- animal rights activism (Himmler)
- pagan spirituality
- purging the church from public policy
- generous pensions for the elderly
- confiscation of inherited wealth
- spending vast sums on public education
- strict racial quota systems in universities
- campus speech codes
- government authority infiltrating every orifice of daily life
- the undesirability of free markets

Now, the above is not to claim that modern liberals are Nazis. We can’t rightly call them Fascists either, even though they’re closer to Mussolini ideologically than are modern conservatives. And they’re certainly not Socialists - in contrast to Socialism, Liberalism upholds private ownership. The divergence from Conservatism is that Classical Liberalism believed government should intervene to relieve market externalities, as described by The Tragedy of the Commons.

The classic example is a lighthouse, from which many benefit, but for which few have to pay. According to Classical Liberalism, the government would need to take over operation of the lighthouse in order to ensure an important service continues to be provided. Not unreasonable, at least when you put it like that. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his New Deal (over-)extended this idea of liberalism however, and Jonah Goldberg has much to say on the Fascist tendencies of Roosevelt, as well as the past and present institution of smiley, friendly American Fascism.

But never mind Jonah, here’s what Ronald Reagan had to say: “Fascism was really the basis for the New Deal.” Indeed, and later, “Anyone who wants to look at the writings of the Brain Trust of the New Deal will find that President Roosevelt's advisers admired the Fascist system... They thought that private ownership with government management and control à la the Italian system [of Mussolini] was the way to go, and that has been evident in all their writings.”

The New Deal types believed that governmental power could alleviate not only economic but social problems. To understand how this widely-criticised ideological jump to Fascism was made, consider that poverty could be misconstrued as a failure of the market by those who don’t understand economics. And so arose the Beast; what we now see as Modern Liberalism, characterised by: State intervention in industry, price controls, wage controls, welfare and social security, affirmative action and so on, perpetually... The Modern Liberal State soon grows into Leviathan, creating more problems as it does so - which then become reasons for further growth.

Still, bloated and oppressive government is no reason to call even Modern Liberals Fascists or Nazis. All political systems share certain aspects and handpicking the commonalities to conflate your opposition with history’s despised non-victors is, quite simply, a cheap tactic. Next time someone throws such a thought-blocking slur at you, humiliate them for their historical ignorance and underhanded tactics accordingly.

We’ll get to ignorance and thought blocks in a minute, but first some pictures. Besides Mussolini and the Romans, here’s another possible source of Hitler’s “White Power” salute:

The American Pledge of Allegiance, circa the early 1900s. Kein Witz, Mein Herr.

And of course there’s the American eagle, I trust everyone who’s read their Asterix knows the origin of that particular bird.

And hey, brother, can you spare a dime (or a Senate Seal)? Yeah, that’s the Fasces on there, the Roman symbol for which Mussolini named his party... Confused, disturbed, shaken?

Fret not. “Blak” paranoid schizophrenic, Suzar, is here to explain everything, with some comforting, ignorant thought-blocking. Marvel at her divers alarums and wise pronouncements on everything up to and including “What Cosmic Principle causes hair (antennae) to be Nappy?” Feel your antennae stand on end as Suzar's trenchant philosophy defines slave morality. "Slave" in the Nietzschean sense, that is.

Of course, Stalin dealt in similarly deluded, or at least underhanded, tactics when he conflated Capitalism with Fascism, which has led to all manner of modern confusion. As we’ve seen, Marxism and Fascism are far from diametrically opposed. They’re bedfellows, if miscegenating ones. Following the Axis defeat, anyone with an even slightly Socialist bent set to putting the maximum spin on this ideological relationship. Further, even the left-wing / right-wing dichotomy in conventional political understanding is a false one, borne of Marxist propaganda and prophesying (faith, remember?). Though far from ideal, a better representation might be:

with Hitler and Stalin firmly in place at the lower left. And in case you failed Propaganda 101, this diagram was drawn up by a Libertarian; David Nolan. He founded the American Libertarian Party, whose key tenets I enthusiastically approve... Perhaps with the exception of abortion and sexual freedom as it applies to non-reproduction. These tenets I approve only grudgingly as, in my opinion, the ideal representation of a political system has a third, ahem, axis for EGI. A system that promotes freedom, wealth and folk, that’s my winning ticket.

Which brings me to Norman Lowell and Imperium Europa, after this quick word from our sponsor:

“There is no obligation upon any man to passive obedience, when his life, his liberty and his property are threatened by footpad, assassin or statesman.”

So, does my directing that statement particularly to white South Africans constitute racism, Fascism or Social Darwinism in the Nazi sense? Of course not. With the quick assertion that EGI is “genetic property,” it constitutes: libertarian race-realism. With that assertion made, we’re good to go:

Imperium Europa is the charismatic Norman Lowell’s vision of an alliance of White nations. As expressed in the aims of his local, "Dominion side" party, Viva Malta, individual countries govern their own economies and societies in accordance with libertarian principles. This has clear advantages over centralised governance, as in a dictatorial Brussels handing down procrustean, one-size-fits-all policies. We might extend the idea to America’s states and the federal government in Washington. The continental, "Imperium side," defender of allied white interests, protects the EGI, spirituality, high culture, high politics and territory of all.

I consider this a pretty damn good idea, though I disagree with much else Lowell has to say. His thinking is largely informed by philosophers such as Julius Evola and Friedrich Nietzsche, and he slips from race-realism into racial supremacy on occasion. Now Evola and Nietzsche, master-moralists both, are great as far as they go:

“The Americans' 'open-mindedness', which is
sometimes cited in their favour, is the other side
of their interior formlessness. The same goes for
their 'individualism'. Individualism and personality
are not the same: the one belongs to the formless
world of quantity, the other to the world of quality
and hierarchy. The Americans are the living refutation
of the Cartesian axiom,

"I think, therefore I am":

Americans do not think, yet they are. The American 'mind', puerile and primitive, lacks characteristic form and is
therefore open to every kind of standardisation.”

“We "conserve" nothing; neither do we want to return to any past periods; we are not by any means "liberal"; we do not work for "progress"; we do not need to plug up our ears against the sirens who in the market place sing of the future: their song about "equal rights," "a free society," "no more masters and no servants" has no allure for us. We are delighted with all who love, as we do, danger, war, and adventures, who refuse to compromise, to be captured, reconciled, and castrated; we count ourselves among conquerors; we think about the necessity for new orders… Is it not clear that with all this we are bound to feel ill at ease in an age that likes to claim the distinction of being the most humane, the mildest, and the most righteous age that the sun has ever seen? We are too open-minded, too malicious, also too well informed, too well travelled…”

but I don’t buy into all Lowell’s talk of pagan spirituality and aristocracy. Or anti-Zionism for that matter. Scientific scepticism, meritocracy and bringing the Jews onboard are where it’s at, baby. No disrespect to Lowell though, as a martial artist and expressionist painter, he’s a man of strength and conviction. He thinks big and doesn’t back down, even from his President, and I salute that. I don’t raise him just for an “Ave!”* or high five though, but rather because the idea of Imperium he proposes has the potential of uniting freedom, prosperity and people-loving Whites around the world. And also because of his ideas on food.

Lowell believes food production to be the key weapon at the Imperium’s disposal. Far from threatening sanctions or deploying troops in fractious Third World nations, Lowell suggests that Whites should simply withhold their surplus food from the Mugabes of the world. As an “old-hand in Africa,” Lowell rather cheekily suggests while outlining the geography of the Imperium, from around 4:50, that taking control of Southern Africa, from the Zambesi downwards, would be “easy.” He also slips in the K-word so, for those of you who haven't been BEE-you-double-tee-fucked yet, don’t watch it at work.

According to Lowell, it’s simply a matter of controlling agriculture: handing out free food (and bottles of gin) to encourage Bantu emigration northwards. Of course, that’s all terribly racist and naughty and I would never publically condone such a thing. Lowell might suggest however, that those Boers who can’t leave the country take careful note of his strategy. If they’ve no other recourse, they might consider, ahem, banding together in solidarity and threatening a farmer’s strike. Starvation is quite the bargaining chip - no more puns, Lowell promises - when it comes to convincing people... Particularly in times of economic instability and rising food prices. And government transition. Of course, such active disobedience could only occur if Whites in general, and Boers in particular, harbour some objection to their ethnic and cultural genocide.

“There is no obligation upon any man to passive obedience, when his life, his liberty and his property are threatened by footpad, assassin or statesman.”

You know, if they feel morally obliged to defy the footpads, assassins and statesmen in defence of their life, liberty and property. Not to mention their family's life, liberty and property. Of course, defending their own interests would be quite a moral leap for some Whites. But never mind such types right now...

Lowell continues: if a worst-case scenario unfolds in South Africa with regard to farm murders, land expropriation and (Black National) Socialism, perhaps the Boers will remember they’re far from powerless slaves. Their position as the food producers makes them, in fact, a masterful power-elite. And should a threatened strike not produce a desired result, reinstating the Commando perhaps, then a few accidental chemical spills might. He who can destroy a thing, can control a thing.

* Believe it or not, my blog’s name and art direction were conceived before my introduction to Imperium Europa. Morphic resonance and racial archetypes, man.

Very good as usual Dante. One thing i disagree with though.

"And I’m not sure how close native Germans and German Jews are genetically, but I’m betting on “quite.”"

The only reason that would be is because they were, and still are, actively stealing their genes through interbreeding, just like they do in every country that gives them asylum.

How close native Germans and pure-blooded jews are genetically? I'd bet about as much as Germans are to Arabs.

Dante said...

Thanks, Rhein.

Yeah, difficult to say off-hand what the genetic similarity is like. I'll keep an eye out for reliable information on Jewish genetics.

Of course, with all the inbreeding and whatnot, it's very hard to nail down the typical Jew... With the exception of Jesus Christ of course, who we all know had blonde hair, blue eyes and a mild Midwestern accent.

Please excuse my long absence. Between work, relationships, emigration plans, moving into a new place and travel, I haven't been able to give this blog the attention it deserves.

I intend to get back into the swing of things soon. That said, I also have a two week golfing holiday coming up...
