In unity?

During the years that I’ve been blogging and/or following discussions on dissident right blogs, there has been a lot of talk about how to bring the ‘normie’ section of our folk to some kind of awareness of our predicament. And having done that, presumably, we would move on to some kind of useful action.

At the AntiDem blog, this question is explored in a blog piece, which I recommend.
In that piece, one idea that is proposed is that of doing concrete acts such as charitable volunteerism amongst our own folk. I know that this has been discussed on forums and blogs occasionally, but it never seems to get off the ground. Why?

The writer of the blog piece has sound ideas and recommendations as to how it could be done, but one obstacle is that for some on the right, the idea of doing charitable acts is seen as enabling society’s losers; there is a tendency on the right to see the poor as being responsible for their own misfortunes, not worthy of receiving any sympathy or help. It’s true that there are those who may have created their own problems through what used to be called ‘vices’, along with fecklessness and irresponsibility, or ”poor life-choices.” In other words, not all those who experience difficulties in life are ”victims,” neither are they villains.

And what about the elderly or disabled, or anyone who through unforeseen catastrophes have ended up in need of assistance?

I commend the author of the AntiDem piece for a more compassionate attitude towards those who, through no fault of their own, are in bad circumstances. It’s surprising to find something other than the usual ‘die, boomers, die‘ rhetoric.

Incidentally, not all elders are ”boomers’; we still have many of the ‘Silent generation’ among us, and even some of the Greatest Generation’. They are human and subject to human frailties, but hardly the monsters they are often alleged to be.

Then there are those who, despite the improved economy, are jobless, and many still homeless. Can we turn our backs on our kinsmen when they are in need?

As the author of the blog piece suggests, we on the dissident right could generate considerable goodwill by doing what real ‘pro-Whites’ should do, helping our brothers and sisters, those who are not likely to be favored when the government or charitable organizations direct their largesse towards the usual ‘victim groups’, not towards Whites in distress. I’ve read that in the UK the government spends considerably more money on immigrants than on their own elders, who receive paltry pensions. I suspect the same situation exists here in the U.S., where ”our” government now spends close to $135 billion on illegal immigrants alone.

I’ve asked before, where is the brotherhood or solidarity amongst Whites? Are we truly pro White, if we nurse grudges against our folk for arbitrary or petty reasons, like the generational grudges which are suddenly in vogue?

Personally I believe that many of these divisions have been created and fostered by those who are hostile towards our folk, and who purposely sow internal dissension amongst Whites. I have come to believe that those who nurture internal strife are ‘outside agitators’ or shills, or paid operatives. They may be antifa types or they may be others not our kinsmen, perennial outside enemies and subversives. Can I prove this? Maybe not, but anyone deliberately stirring up internal divisions is not pro-White, their DNA notwithstanding, no matter what they may say. There are several supposed nationalist bloggers who seem to relish dividing Whites. These are not the actions of a nationalist, populist or a true kinist, or ethno-patriot. I’ve asked where these ideas began? Who’s responsible, and who benefits? Is this blaming and condemning beneficial or hurtful to us as a people?

We may not know who started all this internal animus, but this we know: whoever started it was not on our side, not a well-wisher.

Our foes have created and fostered this, with some of our ‘own’ being the most persistent promoters of internal division. ‘By their fruits‘ we can discern who is loyal and true.

Back in the saner days of the early 20th century, certain phrases were heard amongst Whites; in praising a fellow White’s actions, someone might say ”that’s mighty White of you”, implying that Whites possessed integrity and decency in all senses of the word. Another compliment amongst Whites was “you’re a real White man.” Can that be said of most of our folk now? I still think that we can have some pride in our folk; most of us still have a strong sense of fair play and honor, despite all the slanders against us from the usual suspects. But can we say we actually love our kinsmen, our fellow Whites? Can we, really, when we defame each other?

It’s not very ‘White’ to turn on our own folk, for whatever reason. Most of us have relatives we don’t get along with, including our close relatives in some cases — but they are still our family, and as we used to say, blood is thicker than water. And it used to be that anyone with breeding and discretion did not air family differences in public; we ‘kept it in the family’; we didn’t flaunt the family’s internal problems before the whole world as some are doing now.

Even though all our folk may not be lovable we should show solidarity and loyalty to our own even if only for the sake of mutual defense, survival. Obviously we are under an existential threat. We can’t afford to exclude big segments of our people.

Christians, can we justify having bitter grudges against our kinsmen?

We have a movement within Christianity known as kinism, which should imply
a strong loyalty to our own folk, a concentric set of loyalties and priorities, placing our family and extended family at the center, with non-kinsmen a secondary priority. Our society inverts this, compelling us to extend most of our charity and support to those farthest from us geographically and genetically. The alarming divisions amongst us are a by-product of the propaganda to which we are all subjected, which devalues our folk, producing an estrangement within our family, and internal bickering and antipathy. This is unnatural and counterproductive. It should not even have to be said, it’s so self-evident.

Solidarity with our kin is the sine qua non of being a nationalist or a Kinist, and yet the loyalty and mutual trust is sorely lacking. I’m especially sorry to see Christian ‘pro-Whites’ ripping apart their elders, and justifying these attitudes,
cherishing their grievances. Where is forbearance? Forgiveness?

We might all benefit by a focus on acting within our communities, our neighborhoods, showing our ‘normie’ kinsmen that we are not the caricatured ‘bigots’ and ‘haters’ portrayed by the controlled media. This would be a positive action, showing that we look out for our own; we care. The rest of society seems bent on slandering and defaming us; we could salvage our own reputation by showing that we are human and not a menace as we are portrayed.

Somewhere someone has to do something in the real world to build trust and solidarity with our own folk, beginning with building trust within our communities and strengthening connections with our folk. Nothing is to be gained by continuing with the status quo, with all its divisiveness, internecine squabbling, and accusatory claims. I’ve pleaded this case before, and I may be pleading in vain, but it has to be said, whether or not anyone reads this or heeds the call.

One thought on “In unity?

  1. I’m a bit reticent to keep citing Prof. Smith, but I will take my chances. See his quotation of Chesterton, thus:

    This compromise has long been known,
    This scheme of partial pardons,
    In ethical societies
    And small suburban gardens

    The villas and the chapels where
    I learned with little labor
    The way to love my fellow-man
    And hate my next-door neighbor.

    Here is the link to the post from whence the Chesterton quote is extracted:
