The following is an article by ECW-contributor Fenek Solere.
It is about Ideology and Action and reasons for hope regarding Europe’s future.
If good Fenek is right we may have cause for optimism regarding the future -outside of the possibility of every male leftist getting accused of sexual assault and society imploding that is 🙂
But if you feel like an all-female news media, entertainment industry, professoriat, and political class still might be dangerous, you might want to read on…
(Just joking! (you filthy misogynist!)… While I am glad these nutjobs are cannibalizing themselves I would not be surprised if at least a couple of the men are innocent).
Anyway without further ado though I will just shut up and print Fenek’s article, its excellent and ya’ll should read it!
New Right Europe
‘You are of Yesterday, We are of Tomorrow!’
Seeking Synthesis between Ideology and Action
in New Generation Nationalism:
With the rise of ideologically sound Identitarians like Generation Identitaire in France and Identitare Bewegung Deutschland sweeping mainland Europe and other youth associations in the form of the Estonian Blue Awakening and Nathan Damigo’s Identity Evropa gaining traction in America; coupled with the electoral progress of right populists like the Austrian People’s Party, the Alternative for Germany, Fidesz and Jobbik in Hungary, the Law and Justice Party in Poland, the Swiss People’s Party and the stubborn remnants of the Front National in France; a chill northern wind is forecast to blow once more over the Occident – cleansing both Europe and the American continent of the foul vapours of multicultural double-speak and Politically Correct persecution.
And through the, as yet, still sporadic and geographically disparate, but nevertheless, highly symbolic militant actions of people such as Phoenix Rising in Ireland and Russki Obraz in the Russian Far-East, the first tentative steps towards Francis Parker Yockey’s vision of an Imperium and Guillaume Faye’s Euro-Siberian ideal stretching from Galway to the Urals is being realized.
So are we truly witnessing the Political Soldier Redux?
A warrior generation willing to face up to the inevitable sacrifices required to free Europe from the dark forces that have held our continent in thrall for decades?
A new breed of youth dedicated to defending their birthright?
If Markus Willinger, in his Generation Identity: A Declaration of War Aagainst the 68’ers (2013) is to be believed, we most certainly are.
Do you want to know who we are? Where we come from? What drives us? We’ll tell you
We’re time flowing, the wind rising, the new generation
You surrendered us to a world, uprooted and disorientated, without telling us where to go, or which direction our paths lay in. You destroyed all our opportunity to find a direction. We’re your answer because we’re your children
You should finally realize we don’t live in a unified world or a global village. War victims, the poor and repressed will always be with us. This world will never be a paradise on earth. Your delusions have achieved only one thing: you’ve uprooted your own children
We’re lost and homeless. ‘Who are we?’ we ask ourselves. ‘Where are we going?’
We look for our identity and find it in the ruins of your destructive fury. We have to dig deep to rediscover ourselves’.
It may already be five to midnight but our erstwhile masters are finding it increasingly difficult to suppress or distract us from what is becoming painfully self-evident.
That the scale of the financial and demographic crises emerging before our eyes threatens the survival of civilization in general, the West in particular and the Occidental community specifically.
Despite decades of Frankfurt School style social conditioning, it is my contention, that there is greater potential to form a vanguard amongst the current generation, than those who came before. If only because our backs are pressed so firmly against the wall that we are left with no other option.
Whether marching under national flags, the Celtic Cross or the Lambda of ancient Sparta, what we see reflected back at us in the determined eyes of the young men and women of the Polish National Revival on the streets of Warsaw, the thousands of Latvians gathering in Riga on Legion Day and sense behind the cold expressionless masks worn by The Immortals as they parade in torch lit rites through ancient German towns, is a quiet confidence and a growing sense of defiance.
And that new found solidarity is sending shivers of fear through those that uphold the globalist liberal-democratic order.
Those who thrive because of our divisions, beneficiaries of the status quo, the cabal that Alain de Benoist attacks for their monopolization of world capital, the immiseration of the masses and the decline of the nation-state (Bar-On, 2007, pp155/6). The same purveyors of one-world multiculturalism, the lie of White Privilege and the bankster architects of a slow pervasive genocide of the indigenous European people from their own ethnic homelands.
For the Identitarian movement is answering the call of the blood, stating boldly to their opponents ‘You are of Yesterday, We are of Tomorrow!’ With the rebellious Gauls, descendants of Charles Martel, seizing the Grande Mosque in Poitiers and setting loose their flares and chants amid the minarets.
They have stormed the Socialist Party headquarters, unfurling their banners, demanding the resignation of the French President. And then built barricades and formed a human chain to stop the migrants at Calais.
In Germany Identitarians have stood atop the Brandenburg Gate to spread the message.
While in Austria their compatriots draped the statue of the Empress Maria-Theresa in a burqa and climbed the EU’s Fundamental Rights building in central Vienna, declaring ‘The Future of the Third World Cannot be in Europe. The Future of Europe Cannot Be Africa!’
In Holland, the Dutch Identitair Verzet (Identitarian Resistance) locked the gates to the Ibn Ghaldoun Secondary School in Rotterdam.
Whilst in Italy Blocco Studentesco have subjected the leftists to their belt-whipping cinghiamattanza in the Piaza Navona and their identitarian comrades have confronted the seemingly endless black tide of sub Saharan illegals polluting Mediterranean beaches by taking to the high seas to intercept the Soros sponsored NGO ferry ships collecting and transporting so-called refugees to our golden shores.
Similar groups have sprung up in Spain, such as the Resistencia Identitaria Solidarista; Slovakia, where Marian Kotleba’s People’s Party – Our Slovakia brought thousands out onto the streets of Bratislava on the 26th June 2015 to march against the Islamification of Europe; and all across Scandinavia and the Baltic.
The Nordiska Forbundet (Nordic Alliance) under the stewardship of inspirational Latvian, Lithuanian, Swedish, Finnish and Estonian leaders and thinkers like Kai Murros, Klas Lund, Juuso Tahvanainen, Stefan Jacobson, Julius Panka, Ruuban Kaalep and Konstantin Pupurs have united under the 2013 Declaration of Bauska, a joint commitment to combat international globalism and multiculturalism.
So the stage is set for confrontation and conflagration.
Increasingly the indications are that the young people of Nation Europa are shifting perceptibly to the right. This opportunity, like the Brexit earthquake, cannot be squandered.
Given the demographic time-bomb the liberal establishment have placed and primed to explode in our midst, we must learn quickly from the lessons of the past and seize the moment. It is now or never, so to speak, because in the immortal words of a certain poet and patriot, ‘Tomorrow is Always Too Late’.
From the banks of the Tunguska and Kolyma in Russia’s Far-East to the Rio Grande in the West, sovereign Occidental living space is under threat. Every day the wire fencing surrounding Melilla, a besieged Spanish enclave, becomes a skirmish line, attacked by hordes from the southern hemisphere, invasive male parasites drawn there by the dream of living off our welfare and the desire for the flesh of the European women inhabiting the countries they wish to infest.
If we are to stand any chance of fighting off this invasion, we need thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions to rally to our cause. And that is why the vanguard we see taking the fight to the enemy today, a modern 300 Spartans holding the Hot Gates of Thermopylae, are so vitally important.
For it was by making his legendary stand that Leonidas and his warriors bought time for the later victories at Salamis and Plataea. It will be for his spiritual successors to set the ideological tone for those who join our ranks later. It is they, the Political Soldiers of the present, informed by the past, who will guide us into the future.
And what a future that could be. A bloody victory ripped from the steel jaws of almost certain defeat. But hard won battles will prove to be pyrrhic if we fail to unite and to overcome the petty nationalisms that have dogged us in the past.
As per Robert Matthews, ‘A Call to Arms’ (September 1983) ‘Ten hearts, one beat. One hundred hearts, one beat. Ten thousand hearts, one beat!’
We must embrace the ethos so well-articulated by the Spanish Resistencia Identitaria Solidarista: ‘Our principle objective is to defend European identity… but beyond these considerations, we advocate the construction of a one and united Europe on the grounds of common origin…’
So, attractive and stylish as the new buzz-cut curtain haircuts are and as reminiscent as they may be of a certain youth movement of the 1930’s, we need more than fashionistas if we are to achieve our goals.
We must act and feel like liberators and freedom fighters as we recite the mantra of Jose Primo de Valera’s Falange, ‘Jose Antonio, Presente!’ and ‘Viva la Muerte!’
And such ideals live on. They are not so easily forgotten or ignored.
Carl Schmitt’s Theory of the Partisan based on two lectures in 1962 defines the Political Soldier as one who arises out of the enmity between diverse peoples. One who is found engulfed in revolutions and civil wars.
His views concur with Martin Heidegger that the true partisan of the future will offer resistance to the homogenized, global, technological civilization laboring under the iron heel of egalitarianism. Someone who fights for the liberation of his or her people and homeland.
The long tradition of Political Soldiery offers various interpretations, including Jean-Francois Thiriart, a Belgian theoretician of European Revolution, who formed Jeune Europe in the early 60’s and argued that Europe was the cradle of civilization, calling for ‘national liberation, sovereignty and self-determination for all Europeans’ and ‘allied ethnicities’.
He set up branches and training camps for his Political soldiers in Italy, Spain and France. Thiriart’s theories were thought to be National Bolshevik by some and a hybrid of Fascist-Maoist philosophy by the historian Walter Ze’ev Laqueur. But there are other versions too.
An Anglo- Evolian hybrid of the Political Soldier emerged out of the fractious dissolution of the British National Front in the late 70’s and early 80’s, the bastard fusion of Roberto Fiore and Massimo Morsello’s brand of Italian fascism and Olde Albion’s independent island mentality. A philosophy articulated through the writings of a well-meaning, if overzealous and controversial Roman Catholic advocate for National Revolution, Derek Holland, in what turned out to be one of the most divisive chapters of modern British nationalism.
…the essential message of the Political Soldier; that what is needed above all else is a fundamental shift in attitude towards struggle, towards life, towards destiny; that there cannot be and will not be any serious change in the overall direction taken by the countries of Europe until the New Man, stands like a giant on the horizon, capable of moulding and inspiring a New Social Order…If the Political Soldier does not stand up and proclaim the Truth, does not point out the Right Values, who will? What future for our families, for our nations, our culture?’
– Derek Holland, London 1994
Like a thunder-clap the Political Soldier’s time has come again.
Foretold in Piero Ignazi’s 1992 article ‘The Silent Counter-Revolution’ which spoke of radical right attracting people who had become disaffected with post-modernism and materialism, the very antithesis of the crepuscular ‘Homo Economicus’.
Anticipating this opportunity the re-activated European Liberation Front including groups like Nouvelle Resistance, Alternativa Europea, The National Bolshevik Party and National Revolutionary Faction, met in Paris as far back as 1999 to issue a sequel to Francis Parker-Yockey’s ‘Proclamation of London’ (1949).
So it comes full-circle, as per Nietzschean prediction, the eternal flame remains lit. Now, those ideals must burn bright once again in the hearts of our advocates and our people, so that they will forever be remembered, just like the 189 courageous Swiss Guards who held the steps to St Peter’s basilica against enormous odds in 1527.
‘I started with an impulse of my heart, with that instinct of defense which even the least of the worms has, not with the instinct of self-preservation, but of defense of the race to which I belong…’ – Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
