This article by Julian Langness was originally published by Counter-Currents on February 19th, 2016.
A couple days ago the Daily Mail presented the case of another young British girl, thirteen years old in this case, who was groomed, beaten, and forced into sex with a Muslim teenager, and then pimped out and virtually enslaved for months in a small room with a couch, to a group of at least 12 Muslim men, who would rape her- sometimes one at a time, sometimes in groups of up to six- for hours on end every day. In reading such reports; in seeing the laughing faces of these Muslim men at trial; in hearing the traitorous leaders of many European countries excuse and enable such crimes, our hearts can easily (and rightfully) become filled with rage of an almost overwhelming nature.
Beyond this however, what compounds this wrath, is a distinct feeling of not being able to impact the situation. For those of us in America, our great distance from the problem can engender a sense of helplessness. And even for Europeans themselves, what can seem like a complete lack of outlets for fighting back against such forces can cause a similar feeling of impotence. The unbearable combination of this stifled sense of ineffectualness, and this overwhelming rage, burns in the hearts of many.
For that reason it is helpful to lay out those proactive steps which can be taken to start fighting back against our enemies, and on the behalf of our people and our future. To that end is the following list laid out. It is a catalogue of ten everyday actions which will in various ways serve this purpose. Some of the first few items on the list may seem pedestrian, but they are all important building blocks of what must be a foundation for action.
1. Get control of your finances
Our lifestyles in the modern West are defined by rampant materialism and outrageous amounts of debt. Many people mired in these forces do not understand their full significance however. Debt and consumer spending are the veritable glue that hold our corporatist system together. It does not have to be like this, but it is. And for the powers in our system, there is nothing better than for our people to be distracted, riddled with debt and anxiety, and thinking only of the next shiny plastic bauble, the next car or vacation, the next College Degree they can get through increasing indebtedness.
To reject such a lifestyle and such a system is therefore a revolutionary action. Furthermore, it is imperative if one is to reject the forces arrayed against us and do one’s utmost to protect our folk. Therefore we should not rest merely with rejecting debt. One should fully master financial literacy to the point where he or she is also able to 1) build wealth and passive income, and 2) become self-employed or otherwise free of the “rat race”. Lest any reader feel I am getting off topic, consider the evidence: How many traditionalists and opponents of anti-European racial and multicultural utopianism have lost their jobs when their views were outed? How many more are forced to keep silent for fear of the same? If each person who shares our views could get out of debt, build passive income equal to their monthly expenses, and then quit their job to focus more of their time on our struggle, how much more could be done on our people’s behalf? What if only 20% achieved this? Surely the outcome is worth the struggle. Furthermore, if one is working for a large multinational corporation, or for the government of one of these corrupt nations, then that is reason alone to cultivate such an exit strategy.
2. Get control of your time
This is a very similar point to #1, but bears highlighting separately. For just as the vested interests in our societies wish to keep us in debt and terrified of unemployment, they also knowingly benefit from the countless distractions that modern life throws at us.
If we could curb our broader race of addictions to facebook, video games, pornography, reality television, and all the other vices of our world, the magnitude of the results would be monumental. For that reason it is important to take stock each day, and catalog just how we are spending our time, and what we are creating vs what we are consuming. Even as relates to our struggle, there is certainly a difference between re-tweeting endless rounds of rape stories, vs actively building up our ability to combat them.
This follows from item #2 and is partially related to it. It is an idea which is tangentially, if not directly, related to the theories of Col. John Boyd and the OODA Loop. Namely, it is the question of whether one, within a conflict, is a “feeder”, or a “receiver” of action/violence/input. “Feeders” are far more likely to be victorious, as they define the progression of battle. In the language of the OODA Loop, they “re-orient” themselves far faster, keeping their opponent off his footing and reactive. Within our conflict, we have been the “receivers” for far too long; sitting back, subdued, while our opponents happen to us, instead of us happening to them. Indeed one could argue that the entire history of multicultural Europe has been defined by proactive action on the part of the ethno-suicidalists, while the great “silent majority” holds back, afraid of being called racist, and distracted by the day to day concerns of life. Similarly, the behavior of the Muslim immigrants in the West over the last 25 years fits squarely within the same category, as they purposefully chip away more and more at their host societies, inflict countless wounds upon our racial and cultural body, and build greater and greater power within our lands.
4. Donate Money To European-Preservationist Groups And Causes
The success of revolutionary movements is directly related to their finances. While the level of this correlation may vary, it is an undeniable fact of history. Our movement is currently in an extra-difficult position vis a vis this issue, because there are few governments or groups of very wealthy individuals whose goals are in line with our cause. I believe this may change as anarchy begins to spread in Europe, and that governments that are now taking more pro-active steps to avoid massive immigration, such as Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia(and hopefully soon Denmark and Finland), will eventually give money to preservationist-groups in other European countries, in an attempt to halt the spread of destabilization. In the meantime however, funding is of crucial importance.
It is easy to say “give money”, but harder to quantify exactly how that is done. Giving even 10% of one’s income is an extremely difficult feat for most individuals, especially young people, as many European-Preservationists are. The solution of greatest efficacy that I know of is that of slowly building one’s “giving muscles”. If you or your family is doing a monthly zero-based budget (point #1 above), the best bet is to begin parceling out just 1% of your monthly income, even a half of a percent, to causes you wish to help. From there you can slowly increase it each month, going up by another one percent or half a percent, until you eventually reach a figure you feel good about. If each of us built up to 10%, imagine the impact it would have.
5. Lift Weights
This is more of a metaphysical or philosophical response to our existential threats than a practical one. Nevertheless it should be deemed valuable. It is also very much related to the threats we face. These threats have arisen because Western man has rejected strength, rejected masculinity, and rejected his responsibilities. We must re-embrace these qualities and these roles, and use our strength to save Europe and save our people. Strength has been an implicit and defining feature of manhood since the dawn of human history. Our ancestors had to use their physical strength to ward off dangers to their tribes and families, so that we could one day be born. If we are physically weak now, when the greatest of existential threats that has ever befallen our people has arisen, do we not dishonor our ancestors’ memories?
This item does have a practical application. This side of its importance need not be elaborated upon. Its study can take two forms:
A. Martial Arts and hand to hand combat. The rise of MMA has brought mixed-martial arts clubs to almost every town in America and Europe. There are numerous choices for any man in terms of gyms, schools, etc. While it is easy to dismiss the rise of MMA-fandom and culture as a “fad”, it is also the case that these are extremely valuable skills to have.
B. Paramilitary/survivalist and firearms training. This strikes a bit of a nerve, as we are well aware that the media would have us all believe that anyone who thinks in terms of culture and race is a potential mass-murdering Nazi, but on the contrary, were the current situation in Europe placed within any other historical lens, who wouldn’t be learning how to defend one’s family if necessary? We have done a thorough job of outlining the foolishness and dishonor of individuals such as Anders Behring Breivak and Dylan Roof, whose actions can be considered neither ethical, honorable, nor strategically valid within a 4GW paradigm, but it does not follow from that that any knowledge or discussion of guns should be dismissed. Indeed I would argue that even within the most well-structured and safest societies, it is important for men to know how to use guns, and how to defend their families. In a modern Europe that is neither well-structured nor safe, such knowledge becomes even more imperative.
7. Create art and information
It is easy to declare that there are “too many writers”, and “too many websites”, and that only more “real action is needed”, but I would deem this not the case. The journey to full consciousness for Europeans and European-Americans is often a slow one, and far more like a series of interconnected conveyor belts than like an epiphany.
I consider it somewhat like a funnel, in which normal individuals “stick” to something, be it a favorite website, a favorite poet, a film, a sub-culture, etc. From there they travel along, until a related conveyor belt snatches their attention. In my case I was lead to Counter-Currents, for instance, through my interest in Jack Donovan. I was lead to Jack Donovan through my interest in Art of Manliness. I was lead to Art of Manliness by a forum I often frequented. By the time I arrived here I already shared many of the views of this community, but this still illustrates a fair reading of how “moderns” (to steal some of the Islamists’ vocabulary), or “normies”, leave the regular world behind and become conscious.
Each piece of art created in this vein is one more sticky point that can catch someone’s attention. Therefore the more art, the more websites, and the more writings we create, the faster we catalyze the awareness that is needed.
8. Cultivate real-life friendships
Jack Donovan has written about the degree to which modern men lack real male friendships, and the problems associated with this. Greg Johnson has written about the virulence of ideas and the exponential nature of awareness. To paraphrase his words, what if you could convert one person to our way of thinking each year, and they converted one other person as well? The nature of such compound growth is overwhelming.
It is certain that one of the defining features of Western modernity is man’s isolation from man, but as we build more real-life friendships and real-life brotherhoods, our power becomes magnified, and greater potential to fight back against our enemies is realized.
9. Decide where to make your stand
If one wants to contribute to the preservation of Europe, a logical question is from where can that best be done. If one lives in North Dakota, or New Zealand, he or she shall be limited to writing, organizing, fund-raising, and the like, at least as it relates to Europe. If one lives in Europe, or relocates to Europe, more direct avenues open up. Each of us will have to decide what course best suits our own purposes and abilities. If one has control of one’s finances, and one’s time, and has the skills that are needed in an on-the-ground conflict, then it should be more than possible to move to Europe and fight tooth and nail for its future. That brings us to item #10.
10. Join a resistance group
All around Europe we see groups trying to fight back against the murder/suicide of their nations. There are small groups like the Sons of Odin in Finland. There are large movements such as PEGIDA. There are more formal groups such as Britain First. There are political parties such as the Sweden Democrats. If you are in Europe, or once you get to Europe (item #9), find a group to become a part of. I have no doubt each is flawed in its way, as revolutionary action is messy and difficult. But they are all doing the noble work of attempting to preserve our lands and cultures.
Whether one sees themselves as a politician, a writer, a protester, or a fighter, there will no doubt be need of each and every person’s help in the years to come.
