THE MISSING NPI SPEAKER

unti11tled-1

I had gotten to know Richard Spencer some years back after a long an disappointing career in right-wing conservative politics, however he sold me on the idea of the “Alt-Right” right off the bat as I thought that FINALLY something would get done, FINALLY a dynamic new movement that would do away with the conservative cowardice that I had been battling for decades, what has been since popularly described as “cuckservatism”. What happened instead, however, was a repeat of all the mistakes, errors and problems I’ve seen before. This inescapable realization is what led me to abandon Spencer’s group and forego attending the post-Trump-victory NPI meeting.

I was made aware of the Jewish Question at a relatively young age, however it took me a few years to absorb this knowledge before I would attempt to actively participate in politics. By this time, I had plenty of opportunity to look over the activity of the “right wing” – the conservatives – and had come to the conclusion, in my total ignorance of the real nature of the case, that all they needed to succeed was an organizatonal drive to get them “together”, with a business-like PLAN. I had found that there were dozens and maybe hundreds of well established and respected men in society, who felt much as I did, and who, together, could pool enough money and resources to swamp the Marxist-Zionist Jewsand leftwingers. There seemed to be plenty of talent and ability – and actually a majority of our people over on my side of politics, so that common sense seemed to force the conclusion that it was only a lack of determined effort to put this TOGETHER which permitted the left-wing minority, sparked by the sub-minority of Jews, to keep winning victory after victory and send America down the path to Marxist socialism and racial disintegration.

But I reckoned without any knowledge of the human content of the “right-wing.”

From the financially well-to-do to the scared little people who attend the endless pitiful “conservative,” “100% American,” “old-fashioned,” “constitutional,” “state’s rights” – meetings – I learned by bitter experience, that the human material of the right wing consists 90% of cowards, dopes, nuts, one-track minds, blabber-mouths, boobs, incurable tight-wads and – worst of all – hobbyists – people who have come to enjoy a perverted, masochistic pleasure in telling each other forever how we are all being raped by the “”shhh–you-know-whos,” but, who, under no conditions, would think of risking their two cars, landscaped homes, or juice jobs to DO something about it.

Nevertheless, at the time I was full of optimism and eagerness to get to work, and with the help of some old and newfound friends with similar outlooks, organized a number of behind-closed-doors meetings. I addressed such meetings in the best “conservative” style, lecturing “nicely” on the need “to get together” more than anything else, and receiving little flurries of polite applause.

UGH! How I shudder now to think of all that feeble, useless, and stupid “niceness” – while our race and our whole world are being brutally destroyed!

Back then it was still considered dangerous to attack the Jew directly, thus we had to tip-toe around the subject. From time to time somebody in the audience would ask “what about the Jews!” – and there would be snickers and shifting around of feet, like grammar school kids when somebody mentioned the word “sex”. Then I would scold this “bold” character for such a “disgusting display of prejudice”, making my righteous love of the wonderful Jews very clear, and even sharing knowing winks with some close friends at my “clever” deception.

The Jews would not have disturbed such a meeting for anything in the world. We, like a million other “conservatives” were giving ourselves the illusion of “fighting” treason, subversion, communism and race-mixing (the Jews) without DOING anything and without HURTING the enemy himself. If we did NOT have such silly little secret meetings, we would eventually build up such a pressure of frustrated patriotism that we just MIGHT have done something forceful – and therefore effective.

The conclusion of these events was always a sort of after-party as we all stood around babbling, as is the inevitable custom after such “battles” with the enemy.

Once the audience of these clandestine soirees had swelled to a couple of hundred people I poured out my time and money in an all-out effort to organize the right-wing “nicely,” as the “American Federation of Conservative Organizations,” and published a conservative paper – not at all unlike Spencer’s NPI and Radix journal. Now having gone public, we held meetings in different hotels, I had a beautiful stationary engraved in gold. I used all my skill in art, writing, organizing, promoting and leading – but they were useless. The basic premise – the premise of conservatism – was wrong.

Although it is made to appear so, the battle between the “conservatives” and “liberals” is NOT a battle of ideas or even of political organizations. It is a battle of FORCE, TERROR and POWER. The Jews and their accomplices and dupes are not running our Country and its people because of the excellence of their IDEAS or the merit of their work, or the genuine majority of people behind them. They are in power in SPITE of the lack of these things, and only because they have DRIVEN their way into power by daring MINORITY TACTICS. They can stay in power only because people are AFRAID to oppose them – afraid they will be socially ostracized, afraid they will be smeared in the press, afraid they will lose their jobs, afraid they will not be able to run their businesses, afraid they will lose political offices. It is FEAR, and FEAR alone which keeps these filthy left-wing sneaks in power – NOT ignorance by the American people as the “conservatives” keep telling each other. Our right-wing “fighters” keep assuring each other “ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” – when the truth is that any SLAVE knows the truth – that he is a slave – but he is NOT free in spite of knowing this truth, unless he can somehow get the POWER to FORCE his way to freedom. It is not the truth which will make us free in America, because millions already know the truth and hate bitterly what is going on, but they are AFRAID even to admit they know the truth. As long as the right wing spends all its time and money trying to “win” millions instead of getting the thousands we already have to STAND UP! We have plenty of people, money and facilities to take America back from the traitors TOMORROW MORNING if all the people who already know what is going on, were not AFRAID anymore and would STAND UP!

As long as the right-wing confines its fighting to being “nice”, the great masses of the public will bow down like the sheep they are to the left-wing which is NOT nice – which uses smear, economic persecution, legal harassment, and finally physical terror to maintain its domination of our national life and culture by FORCE. The force is disguised, of course, in checkbooks, judge’s robes, rigged party conventions, etc. – but it is still either the force itself, or the threat of force which has America down and AFRAID.

No amount of papers and pamphlets, or podcasts and memes that this new generation relies on today, were they all masterpieces of propaganda – and no amount of talk and meetings can stop this growing left wing force and POWER and the FEAR it inspires – much less drive it back and finally destroy it.

And I was as much a part of this childish illusion as anybody else. I spent literally hundreds of hours discussing the methods for legal revolution – and the only thing I gained from it all was the final discovery that it was – and always has been – impossible to unseat the terrorists by talk. One must dislodge such evil usurpers by the same weapon which got them IN – POWER. Theirs was and is secret and disguised. Ours, by nature, must be open and honest. But it must still be POWER – not talk or pamphlets or sneaky dreams – and it involves, therefore RISK.

I also learned to know the perennial “patriots”, the eternal attenders of meetings, the inexhaustible talkers and babblers, the super-clever know-it-alls who are going to “throw the election into the house this time”, etc., etc., etc., and the disgusting hobbyists who discharged their pent-up “patriotism” once a week or so in the masochistic orgasm they seemed to obtain by flagellating themselves with the latest outrages of the Jews. These people seemed to have been “fighting” the Jews all their lives – years and years and years. Their standard reaction to anything they didn’t think up themselves – a new plan for sneaking up on the Jews – was “I was fighting this thing before you were born, son” – and this was supposed to send the upstart packing. As if people who had spent forty or fifty years fighting so monstrously unsuccessfully had any business daring to open their mouths at all. Which is exactly why I was taken by Spencer’s pitch for me to join the Altright – here was someone with a much bolder and open approach than that of the past several decades (or so I first thought), during which many others, including myself, had been failing and tripping over our own feet.

In my own time our meetings were better and better attended, but there was no result at all – nothing accomplished.

Only now do I realize that the idea that there is ANYTHING EASY that can be done, which will send the Jew traitors scurrying for Israel like rats, while we walk triumphantly into the White House, is one of the worst self-delusions which has been keeping the right wing babbling and conspiring while the Jews have been laughing at us and trampling all over our Constitution, our rights, our traditions, our dignity and our White Race. Any man who spends thirty or forty years pretending to imagine there is such an easy way, while our Country and our White Race go down and down and down – is not a dreamer – or ignorant – he is a Coward! And this very well applies to myself.

“Conservatives” are the world’s champion ostriches, muttering to each other down under the sand in “secret,” while their plumed bottoms wave in the breezes for the Jews to kick at their leisure. They are fooling nobody but themselves.

My own political undertakings were finally crushed when during, what was to be the last conference of the “American Federation of Conservative Organizations,” I planned a new “Declaration of Independence”. The result was absolutely nil – nothing. There were a good many compliments and pleasant remarks, but no real progress or offers to help build such an organization. I knew the situation for our people and Nation was desperate, and everybody agreed that it was. But nobody would DO anything No matter how hard I tried, I ran into a solid, blank, silent wall. With the idea gaining no traction the AFCO and myself were fated to fade away into obscurity.

I still cherished the hope that we could save ourselves by some easy way when I was approached by Richard Spencer, who had learned of my exploits from some dug up copies of the conservative magazine I used to publish.

We talked over the “movement”, as patriotic leaders inevitably do upon meeting, and agreed that what was needed was what he called a “hard core”. His concept of creating an alternative right-wing to that of the conservative sphere was intriguing, and as I have established earlier, I felt I was in no position to scold someone with a bold new idea, my own practice having been an abysmal failure.

However the reality had finally hit me, when I came to realize that I was reliving my own failure all over again, this time with Spencer at the wheel. What seemed to be a brand new direction, by virtue of but a few superfluous changes, was in reality MORE OF THE SAME. The Altright felt like it would not fall into the trap of being “nice” by virtue of attacking the conservatives for being exactly that, and yet in practice Spencer and all other persons affiliated with the Altright label whom I had since learned about, were doing the same exact thing, except instead of “niceness” they would talk of maintaining a “respectable” image, of the need to be “presentable”. IN FACT Spencer himself was one of the most guilty parties in this regard, professing respect for Jews, while Jared Taylor was bending over backwards to seemingly prove his utmost devotion to them. Even the “bold” ones who dared to openly criticize and “name” the Jew were otherwise doing everything exactly the same way as when we did it.

I confronted Spencer some days before the election as to these issues and told him I would depart from the Altright altogether if the present state of affairs were to continue. He had assured me, that should Trump win, we’d be able to act even more boldly than before and live up to the full promise of the Altright as he had presented it to be at our first encounter. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt, though certain people warned me that he would welch on his promise, and instead double down on the disgusting niceness.

It is probably an insult to the reader’s intelligence to state bluntly what happened. Men do not suddenly change their pattern. Spencer DID welch. I prompty departed from the Altright and refused to attend the latest NPI conference, instead focusing my efforts on exposing all these frauds who were simply repeating the same mistakes that have plagued the right-wing for generations.

Many right-wingers are sincerely concerned, I know, about my current battles with men such as Spencer, Greg Johnson, et al., and my revelations of what they really are. “They are doing good”, I am told, “why not let them go about their business their own way. They are helping. Don’t hurt them”.

I maintain they are only giving the APPEARANCE of helping – and are actually hurting. To which I can already predict a “meme” response and accusation of “purity spiraling”.

Before a mass of people will rise up and DO anything effective and forceful about a tyrannical situation, there must be built up a certain emotional PRESSURE. A fire-cracker has not the force of a rifle bullet because it explodes harmlessly in all directions. But the gas from a rifle bullet cannot escape. except by forcing the bullet out at terrific speed, because it is CONFINED, DIRECTED INTO USEFUL CHANNELS.

The Jews know this, and in my day would PERMIT these hundreds and hundreds of harmless little right-wing organizations to spout endlessly in silence behind the Jewish “paper-curtain”. They don’t reach any significant number of people OUTSIDE their own group, and when they do, their approach is so feeble and so psychologically wrong that they win only a few odd-balls. They NEVER, NEVER get out into the public, into the streets – and reach the MASSES with an INSPIRING and DRIVING masculine movement, which alone can win the HEARTS of the MASSES! And the same is happening now to the Altright, despite possible appearances. The Jews allow these public venting sessions and allow their lapdogs to throw some protest, but don’t take any REAL action against Spencer and his ilk, proving how little of a threat they pose, how much they lack any of those qualities I list above. 

Which is where I had finally learned my lesson that there will be NO easy ways out, that niceness does NOT work and NEITHER does the Altright’s “not-niceness”. Only a RADICAL approach can do the job that we MUST do: we must stiffen the backbones of enough people so that they prefer to lose their jobs, they prefer to be unjustly jailed and fined, be railroaded to the insane asylum, or even to be beaten before they will permit Jew tyrants to advance one more fraction of an inch into our last frontiers of racial pride and National freedom.

Radix journal, online podcasts and blogs perhaps “inform” a lot of people. But we don’t need any more informed people WHO WON’T STAND UP AND FIGHT TO OPPOSE TYRANNY!

Such things as Radix also keep the “steam pressure” of emotions down in thousands or millions of Americans who are already informed – who feel that as long as Radix is published, “something” is being done, who are fooled into imagining that we can somehow petition or talk our way out of tyranny.

These false right-wing leaders, who, for forty or fifty years have been preaching a million different tricks to avoid the desperate, dangerous FIGHT which is always the price of any victory, are approaching the end of the road. They can not much longer pretend that we can save ourselves with their sugary nostrums, when the patient feels the death rattle in his chest, as White America can feel it now.

It is for this reason, not personal animosity, that I consciously and calculatingly expose these political frauds. The doctor cannot cure as long as the patient is chasing after quacks, and imagines himself “getting better”. The patient, our White Race, is DYING – the situation is desperate! And it is viciously CRIMINAL to be loaded and then take sincere little people’s dimes and dollars for sugar syrup!

We intend to make it impossible for the fakes to keep up their medicine show. Sooner or later, our mastery of the right-wing is assured. Exposing the simple truth about such men as Richard Spencer, Jared Taylor, Greg Johnson, etc., is part of that cruel but utterly necessary conquest. No matter how we are cursed and hated by the short-sighted, we will win all sincere Americans and White Men when they SEE that we have DONE what they have so long prayed for – united the right-wing, and driven steel into its backbone, even if we have to force this unity upon them. The process is never easy or pleasant, but we mean to SAVE OUR COUNTRY AND RACE. The hurt feelings of a few rich kids, hobbyists and incompetent leaders will not deter us from that holy mission.

No, American, it is not wicked to attack and expose Spencer and his ilk. They have been wrecking the movement they are supposed to be creating for many, many years – and until they pitch in with their money, their brains, their guts and their blood – they are FRAUDS, and I intend to drive them out of our way.


What you have just read above is not, in fact, a contributed article by a nameless American patriot who desperately fought against the Jews for the last 50 years dating back from 2016. Instead, you have just read the words of Commander George Lincoln Rockwell of the American Nazi Party, from his autobiography “This Time the World“, referring to a period of his life in the 50s (events addressed by Rockwell in the original text happened prior to 1956) when he had just entered politics, but before he became an open National-Socialist.

The text was adapted to create a narrative that would showcase you how much beating around the bush is truly going on with the American “right-wing” – of which the Altright is but a new manifestation, despite its claims to be an alternative to it. It practices all of the same damned mistakes that had been made for 50 years, as Rockwell puts it, in his own time. Hence these mistakes and errors have been repeating themselves for well over a 100 years. Every part of the text in cursive is not the words of Commander Rockwell, but our edits and additions, added to form the character of the “Missing NPI Speaker”.

One has to wonder how it could be that each generation of “right-wingers” keep making these exact same mistakes. Not only that, but how is it possible to make these mistakes at all, when someone had already written down their own experience with these issues and setbacks, as they were present 50 years ago. Do these supposed allies to the National-Socialist cause simply ignore one of the greatest Americans to have ever lived? Apparently so. And why do they do that? Because Commander Rockwell was a Nazi.

The only person to have been a successful heir to Rockwell’s legacy is perhaps James Mason, who had likewise offered the same warnings as Rockwell, and beyond, whilst also giving us a new plan of action for this day and age in SIEGE. Despite these two great Champions of our Struggle giving all ample warnings, the cycle of a new generation of “right wingers” cucking themselves in some self-induced delusion as to the effectiveness and uniqueness of their methods (which had not been, supposedly, tried before) has continued to perpetuate itself through the decades.

And the verdict has been already passed, Commander Rockwell rightfully called these people cowards and sissies, for they refuse to learn and refuse to let go of their delusions for an easy victory, as they are too AFRAID of engaging in any REAL form of action that would lead to nothing less than Total Aryan Victory.

Even if we were allies with these imbeciles, they would be utterly useless to our cause for the very reason of their play-safe cowardice that dooms them to repeating the same mistakes, which is indicative of their inherent mentality.  A Fascist/National-Socialist cannot be a coward, cannot be a sissy, it is intrinsically against our character and is an intrinsic part of theirs.

It is well overdue that someone honors Commander Rockwell’s legacy, his contribution to our cause and carries on the fight which he had started, and which James Mason brought up to speed with our current conditions. One thing is becoming increasingly clear: to break the cycle of same old mistakes and stop the American “right-wing” from stepping on the same rake time and again, a new and openly Nazi movement must rise and build itself up as a conqueror of the “right-wing”, by bringing everyone else into the fold by force if necessary, thus driving out all the cowards and forcing them to forsake their fraudulent labels. It’s time to bring these fakers and hobbyists to heel. It is time for America to remember what REAL NAZIS LOOK LIKE.

THE GOLDEN CORD (BOOK REVIEW)

serrano

The Review

The past week I’ve been reading Serrano’s Golden Cord and have to say, it’s quite a ride. If this book was Serrano himself talking to you, you’d hold up your hands defensively and cower away slowly while saying: “Why dontcha backoff Serrano! Don’t steamroll over me with this plox, how about yah take it easy for a second?”

Firstly: I absolutely and categorically ward off anyone reading this unless they have read all of the following Evola books first, in the order that I give them here:

  1. Mystery of the Grail
  2. Hermetic Tradition
  3. Doctrine of Awakening
  4. Yoga of Power

It’ll be beneficial as well if you’ve read Guenon and Schuon most likely as well (I haven’t read anything at all by Schuon yet, but I can say that having as much perennial/esoteric reading under your belt as possible will be of absolute necessity). Furthermore, you need Florian-tier (our comrade and host of the Mysterium Fasces podcast) knowledge of Christianity and various christian heresies. Without these you will be all but lost reading this book, I myself had been lucky enough to have finished reading the Yoga of Power not too long before I decided to tackle the Golden Cord.

Reason for this warning is that Serrano’s style, as far as this book is concerned at least, is hard to deal with – it is very heavy with various references and names and concepts without providing in-depth understanding of them, so it’s heavy in content but at the same time light in explanations. Basically, unless you’ve read the books above this will be a wasted read as you won’t understand any of the words, concepts and names utilized, which he borrows from all those subjects and beyond. He often strews together several concepts that are symbolically describing one and the same thing, and later in the book mixes them up to create a narrative built out of several languages. Hence, it does describe one process but using different narratives, like speaking one sentence but with words from different languages.

The Golden Cord has a peculiar structure of several major portions divided into multitudes of very short segments. Most of these segment don’t last longer than a page and a half. The forward alone, as one portion, contains 21 segments. The other portions are named after the Cathars, Druids, Templars and the Rosenkreuz. The titles of the portions, and in some cases of the segments, are misleading, as he does not go into the in-depth background of each group. Sometimes, he barely mentions them at all in certain segments, while mentioning the other groups, and groups that don’t get their own titles (Minnesangers and Fedele d’Amore for example).

Word of warning (of sorts): pretty much everything up until you start reading the second half of the Templar portion will appear to be extremely wAcky. Conspiracy-theory-tinfoil-hat meets ancient-aliens+DaVinci-Code-History-Channel-documentary-series-marathon-special wacky. Most of the Hollow Earth and UFO stuff will be in the Forward segment, complete with questionable science claims, followed by the History Channel special in the rest of it.

It’ll be kind of like this:

oh the Druids? Yeah mages of hyperborea, and the Cathars were their descendants, kind of? Templars followed in their footsteps and so did the SS, btw jews aren’t jews and the 10 commandments that we know of were a second set of commandments that are false, the original ones are the for real ones and who was Moses anyway, oh an Egyptian priest-mage actually, vikings and Templars had been to South America btw, in fact one Aztek “White God” is actually a depiction of a Templar.

It might be hard for some people to take him seriously, absolutely impossible even, unless they read the ‘must read books’ listed at the start of this review. Problem is that one may easily get lost figuring out how much of this Serrano presents literally as supposed historical facts and real science, and how much of it he presents symbolically and allegorically. With the more historic stuff it becomes a question of the legitimacy of the narrative that he builds depending on what can be believed to be historically true, that might in fact be completely erroneous (as he constantly references other people for the basis of some of his points).

However the historic validity may be completely unimportant as the symbolism takes primacy for Serrano, thus legend becomes more important and more real than factual history – his take on Druids and Catharism for example. Still, Serrano presents this information for those who would like to test the historic accuracy of these things, but their symbolic value as myths/legends would nevertheless prevail – he leaves it up to you to make the call if you want to believe these things as just symbols or as symbols rooted in reality. The myth/legend narrative that Serrano weaves, however, does seem to be legitimate and in line with everything we know from traditional teachings.

As an example:

>otherworldly beings from other planets
Okay, well is that symbolic of transcendental beings, or is this tied to a literal aliens/UFO interpretation?

-Is it aliens or not, Serrano? What are you saying?
-I’m not saying it’s not aliens, but it is totally angels. They could be aliens tho.
-Oh… o-okay?

Serrano also comes from the anti-christian perspective – which is a lot more muddied, however, with these concepts of Jesus having a twin brother. Or, of there being another prophet, which brought more Buddhist/tantric concepts to Christianity, whereas the first one was merely a Jewish nationalist concerned with politics.

Serrano also goes into a concept of how Christianity “inverted” positive symbols into negative ones and vice versa per its lunar antiaryan roots, ergo Lucifer at the center of the earth is not HELL, it’s actually Paradise of Hollow Earth. Overall Lucifer is used as a positive figure in this book, equaled to Apollo and others, referred to as the “God of the Defeated who would come back Victorious” ergo he’s also the god of Esoteric Hitlerism in this narrative.

Apparently this is something that Alfred Rosenberg goes into in his Myth of the XXth Century, a book I, personally, am yet to read. But I did play around with this kind of narrative myself in my kike-on-a-stick phase. Regardless, if you can get past the antichristian/heretical implications you can still see the basic point and narrative being delivered, which isn’t wrong, but the delivery method may be off-putting to our Christian comrades. Of course, I’m saying this from the newfound viewpoint of Christianity being fully in line with traditional, solar/hyperborean esoterical teachings, a stance some of our comrades may not share, and thus be partial to this Rosenberg interpretation.

As far as the Hollow Earth / UFO science is concerned, I did have my theory prior to actually reading the Golden Cord, that in a world fully explored by science, the only way to give life to certain symbols again is to circumvent modern science by introducing some pseudo-scientific claims, and I was curious to see if that is what Serrano was going for. There is one portion of the text preceding all the Hollow Earth science that partially validates this suspicion. The portion in question is, in fact, something one should keep in mind while reading the entire book (italic highlights – Serrano’s, bold highlights – mine):

Before I begin laying out the arguments and theories of those who believe in the existence of hollow Earth, it is important to point out that in all of them I see but a repetition or resurgence of an ancient idea, manifested in many myths and legends which have a significant meaning to humanity, as I will discover and showcase in the course of this work.

Scientific explanations provided below are of no significance in themselves, and it is only interesting to show them here as oddities and extravagances. I see the truth in all of this only in the manifestation of the archetype in a more Platonic sense of the word than a Jungian one.

Myth and legend are indivisible, just as the prototype, archetype. They do not take hold of one specific place on the planet, but rather engulf it whole, instantly, so as to cover it with their influence from both within and without, in a unified world  (Unus Mundus). Only in certain historic times do they firmly plant themselves in some center of the Earth’s living body and act from there, manifesting themselves in a human being, in order to declare their message within the scope of the occurring fatal development…

In short, Serrano’s position is this: it doesn’t have to be literally real because it is still a valid archetype/symbol/Truth, but one can speculate that these things are also quite literally real.

So there’s all sorts of issues with reading this book that may drive people away or give them a false understanding of some things, it’s all up to your level of erudition in this field of knowledge, hence why its important to read all the Evola books that were listed at the start of this review as a bare minimum before getting into the Golden Cord.

However: all is not so bad, and from the second half of the Templar portion until the very end the book becomes a lot more comprehensible with some good stuff in it. Moreover, for me at least, it kind of helped distill and organize everything that was in the book up to that point into a coherent base narrative.

Serrano later talks about the “Three fundamental positions of Esoteric Hitlerism,” which can be summed up thusly:

  1. The position that all of these concepts and narratives are purely symbolic for the inner processes of the soul towards liberation/transcendence
  2. The position that these things are the “as above” equivalents for the real world “so below” concepts that do/did really exist, like Hyperborea and Atlantis, and this position drives people to establish a Golden Age on Earth (he associates Evola’s direction with this via Evola’s promotion of an esoteric order/aristocracy establishing an organic state and etc)
  3. Lastly: “besides these two directions which seem to be different, there is also a third one, that contains the previous ones and reconciles them”

Serrano does not explicitly say which “position” he subscribes to, but it would seem all but certain to be the third one. This doesn’t do much to say how much of the stuff he talks about he himself takes as purely symbolic and how much as being symbolic with a physical/samsaric world counterpart. He is only delivering the “as above” symbol, and leaves the possibility of its “so below” manifestation an open subject of discussion, while providing you will all the relevant information.

Ultimately how much of this he himself believes to be factual history and literally real is unimportant, hence why he doesn’t go into much detail, leaving that much open for debate and open for you to decide (depending on which of these 3 positions you subscribe to yourself) – he just provides all the relevant materials via which you may conduct your own research.

Personally, I have a point of disagreement with this division: there is nothing to reconcile between positions 1 and 2 as they do not oppose one another to any degree (Serrano certainly doesn’t provide any examples of how they would be contradictory enough to be different), thus position 3 is the only, sole position that exists. One can argue that somebody might subscribed to a 100% symbolic interpretation as per the first position, however I doubt such a stance would be possible to maintain once somebody starts reading into these materials. So in reality there are not 3 positions, there’s only the one  the first 2 positions are rather practices, first one for personal transcendence and the second one for establishing the rule of Truth on earth, ushering in the next Golden Age.

An interesting aside is how he introduces the idea of two Grails, one being the initiatory process of the Templars and the other one being the path to immortality, except that they are technically one and the same thing – the ritual of initiation into the order follows the motif of the process towards transcendence. He also thus makes one of the Grails the Templars pursue to be the establishing of Truth on Earth, so the difference of the two Grails is that of the internal struggle for liberation and the outer struggle for establishing Order in human affairs. It is kind of like splitting hairs and at the same time provides just slightly more clarity and a whole new narrative one can take with the same symbol, which can be useful in presentation.

To conclude: this book is a wild ride, and not for beginners. The sheer amount of stuff Serrano hits you over the head with can be overwhelming and disorientating, I myself forgot his earlier warning in the book, the quote provided above, and thus was rather blindsided. I only got the narrative towards the end, which is indeed the same narrative we all follow regardless, but with a whole new style of presentation which is kind of frankensteinian in the way it merges concepts from different symbolic languages as well as ancient and more immediate history together to strew one story. Ultimately you won’t lose much by not reading this book, but it can provide some insight to those who can stomach it.

Its biggest goal, I’d say, is to showcase how Nazi Germany was following an archetypal path, that Hitler, NSDAP and the SS were avatars/reemergence of forces that had manifested themselves prior in history, however out of all his proposed parallels only the Templar one warrants the comparison I think, since the other ones are very dubious in their historic validity. However, since the goal was to have a symbolic connection and to create a new Myth, that can be excused. Being yet another manifestation in a long line of such manifestation is what makes Hitler and Nazi Germany another link in the titular Golden Cord of these manifestations of the solar/hyperborean tradition.

Something that Evola covered in Mystery of the Grail much more succinctly to be honest:

When considered from the above-mentioned perspective, Arthur’s saga appears to be one of the many forms of the general myth of the Emperor or invisible Universal Ruler and of his manifestations. It is a theme that dates back to the most ancient times and that bears a certain relation to the doctrine of the “cyclical manifestations” or avatars, namely, the manifestation, occurring at special times and in various forms, of a single principle, which during intermediate periods exists in an unmanifested state. Thus every time a king displayed the traits of an incarnation of such a principle, the idea arose in the legend that he has not died but has withdrawn to an inaccessible seat whence one day he will manifest himself, or that he is asleep and will awaken one day. And just as the suprahistorical element in these cases overlaps the historical element, by turning a real figure into a symbolic one, likewise the opposite occurs; that is, the names of these real figures sometimes survive, yet designate something that transcends them.

But Serrano seems to have tried to establish a narrative that leads all the way from the mythical Hyperborean prehistory to Nazi Germany via myths and (questionable) historic events in a kind of line of succession, with some other elements involved, hence the idea of Golden Cord, which is a metaphor for Tradition. In a lot of ways the same thing we’ve all been subscribing to for a while now anyway, hence why you won’t lose much by not reading it. However it can be useful for those who want to come up with an esoteric Hitlerist myth themselves.

The final and best suggestion for reading this book is something that our comrade Greve Hans keeps saying “don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story”, which can be altered to be more appropriate for the book so: “don’t let the questionable claims get in the way of their symbolic meaning”.

In other words, don’t fret about the historic and scientific accuracy of anything offered in this book, you can look into them if you so like, but that will not take away from the Truth hidden in their role as symbolic links in The Golden Cord.

Hitler, The Sleeping King at the Center of Hollow Earth

The archetypal narrative that Serrano associates with the idea of Hitler escaping to Antarctica and from there to Hollow Earth, waiting for the day of his return with a large force behind him in the last war to usher in the next Golden Age, is that of the King sleeping in the Mountain. The major themes of this narrative contain a wounded, poisoned, sleeping Hero/King who exists in a state of sleep/paralysis/unconsciousness in some locations that impart the meaning of centrality, like inside a Mountain or on an Island. He awaits the predestined hero who searches for the Grail and passes on the mantle of the King to this hero, becoming the new avatar of this function.

Hollow Earth = Center of the Earth = theme of centrality.

Hitler losing the war = theme of the Wounded King.

Some of the relevant passages from Evola‘s “Mystery of the Grail“, with particular elements highlighted by myself.

First on how Hollow Earth is another symbol of the inaccessible hidden place where the wounded/sleeping King has been taken to.

This is how the traditional notion of an invisible “King of Kings;’ or “Universal Ruler;’ or “King of the World;’ came to be associated with specific symbols, some of which derive directly from analogies, while others are mythologized memories of the land or lands where the primordial Olympian cycle unfolded. 

These are first and foremost symbols of centrality: the center, the pole, the region in the middle of the earth, the central stone or the foundation, the magnet. Then, symbols of stability: the island surrounded by the waters, the rock, the unshakable stone. Finally, symbols of inviolability and inaccessibility; the invisible or not-to-be-found castle or land, a wild mountain peak, a subterranean region. Moreover, the “Land of Light,” the “Land of the Living,” the “Holy Land.” Yet again, all the variations of the golden symbolism, which, on the one hand, includes all the notions of solarity, light, regality, immortality, and incorruptibility while, on the other hand, it has always had some relationship with the primordial tradition and with the age characterized by gold. Other symbols point to “life” in the higher sense of the word (e.g., the “perennial food;’ the “Tree of Life”), to a transcendent knowledge, to an invincible power; everything appears variously mixed in the fantastic, symbolic, or poetic representations that in the various traditions have foreshadowed this constant theme of the invisible regnum and of the Supreme Center of the world, in itself or in its emanations and reproductions.

The Leabhar gabhala (Book of invasions) mentions the advent in Ireland of a new race, that of the “sons of Mileadh;’ whose physiognomy is not clear. In this race the warrior element predominates – it seems that Mileadh has the same root as miles (soldier) – yet it is not distinct from residues of the highest tradition proper to the previous cycle of the Tuatha. Thus even in the civilization of Mileadh we find the symbolism of the “central seat.” The constitution of this people is feudal, with a supreme regality established in Tara, in the “Land of the Middle” (Meadhon), which already had been a sacred center of the Tuatha. Their king used to be consecrated by the “stone of destiny” (lia-fail), more on which later. This too belonged to the tradition of the Tuatha. As for the Tuatha themselves, according to some texts they allegedly left the country, assuming an invisible form as the inhabitants of marvelous “subterranean” palaces or of mountainous caves inaccessible to mortal men, among whom they appear only in exceptional cases. According to other texts, they returned to their original home in Avalon.

***

… while Arthur is attempting to realize his legendary world empire and to conquer even Rome in order to be crowned emperor therein, his nephew Modred, who remained at home, usurps the throne and takes possession of Arthur’s woman, Guinevere. In the war that ensues the traitor is killed, but the best knights of the Round Table also die. Arthur himself is mortally wounded; he is taken to Avalon, that the health-restoring techniques of the women inhabiting that land (especially Morgande’s) may heal him and allow him to resume his function. But Arthur’s wounds (especially the one produced by a poisoned spear, according to some writers) open up again every year while his faithful subjects at home vainly await his return. There is a tradition, however, according to which one day Arthur will return from Avalon to resume his reign: this is why the Britons, since then, never wanted to appoint another king. In other forms of the legend-for instance, in the Otia imperialia by Gervasius of Tilbury-Arthur is portrayed lying in bed in a wonderful palace located on top of a mountain.

***

In the Hindu tradition we encounter the theme of Mahakasyapa, who sleeps in a mountain but will awaken at the sound of shells at the time of the new manifestation of the principle that previously manifested itself in the form of Buddha. Such a period is also that of the coming of a Universal Ruler (cakravartin) by the name of Sarpkha. Since sarpkha means “shell;’ this verbal assimilation expresses the idea of the awakening from sleep of the new manifestation of the King of the World and of the same primordial tradition that the above-mentioned legend conceives to be enclosed (during the intermediate periods of crisis) in a shell. An analogous Iranian tradition refers to the hero Kereshaspa, who, having been wounded by an arrow while he was immersed in a state of slumber (here we find again the same symbolism), survives in a lethargic state through the centuries, being nurtured by the fravashi (like the wounded Arthur, who is tended by women expert in healing techniques); he will come back to life at the time of Saoshyant’s advent and will fight on his side. Saoshyant is the lord of a future, triumphal kingdom of the God of Light and the slayer of the Arhimanic dark forces…

ParaSu-Rama never died, but withdrew to a mountain named Mahendra to live as an ascetic. When the right time comes, in conformity with the cyclical laws, a new manifestation from above will occur (Kalki-avatara) in the form of a sacred king who will triumph over the Dark Age. Kalki is symbolically thought to be born in Sambhala, one of the names that in the Hindu and Tibetan traditions designated the sacred Hyperborean center. His spiritual teacher is Parasu-Rama, and after being initiated into the sacred sciences he receives the regal investiture. From Siva he receives a white winged horse (which in the legend is so important that it came to be identified with Kalki himself), an omniscient parrot, and a bright sword. Recall that Arthur is believed to return one day on a white horse and that this symbol also plays a famous part in the Revelation of Saint John the Divine; recall also Excalibur, the lost sword that Arthur will one day yield again and that from time to time emerges from the bottom of a lake.

***

The “knight of the swan;’ named Elias or Lohengrin, comes from a place that is portrayed as the earthly paradise where the Grail is located (annales quosdam veteres volunt prodidisse, Heliam istum e paradysi terrestris loco quodam fortunatissimo, cui Graele nomen esset, navigatio tali venisse), as Arthur’s seat, and as a mountain.

***

The images of the seat of the Rosicrucians and of their emperor correspond to those of the center: this seat is the “solar citadel;’ the “mountain in the middle of the earth;’ simultaneously “close and far away;’ the “Palace of the Spirit at the further end of the earth, on top of a mountain, surrounded by clouds;’ almost a facsimile of Montsalvatsche.

Next, on the theme of the King.

The awaited, hidden emperor, who never died and who withdrew to an invisible or inaccessible center, is here transformed into one of the major representatives of the Holy Roman Empire: Charlemagne, Frederick I, or Frederick II. The complementary theme of a devastated or sterile kingdom awaiting renewal finds its equivalent in the theme of the Dry Tree. The Dry Tree, associated with the seat of the Universal Ruler, will blossom again at the time of a new imperial manifestation and of the victory against the forces of the Dark Age that are represented, in conformity to the new biblical and Christian religion, by the people of Gog and Magog, who will launch their attack at the time of the advent of the Antichrist.

***

In this case we have also the interference of a further motive, namely, that of the kings who, as they await a predestined avenger or restorer, are artificially kept alive by the Grail.

***

Wolfram has portrayed in Amfortas the type of the wounded king who awaits the hero who will heal him and to whom he will transmit the mandate of the Grail’s kingship.

Thus we come to the Esoteric Hitlerist Myth/Legend of the Fuhrer taken to Hollow Earth, where he awaits the Hero to whom he will give his title and command of the Last Battalion that will usher in the Golden Age in the final war against their enemies.

This theme mimics perfectly the Hindu narrative followed and presented by Savitri Devi (following quotes taken from “Lightning and the Sun“), in which Hitler represents one of the divine Avatars or incarnations of the Gods, one that precedes the final incarnation, the Hero to whom Hitler passes his title, the Hero being the equivalent of Kalki the Avenger:

They live and wait. Knowingly or unknowingly, they are waiting for Kalki; Kalki the last Man Against Time; the Avenger who will give them– or their children– the world.

***

That last, great individual – an absolute harmonious blending of the sharpest of all opposites; equally sun and lightning– is the one whom the faithful of all religions and the bearers of practically all cultures await; the one of whom Adolf Hitler (knowingly or unknowingly) said in 1928: “I am not he; but while nobody comes forward to prepare the way for him, I do so.

THE FACE OF DECAY

faceofdecay-1

One of our favorite fascist quotes is that of Corneliu Zelea Codreanu: “A country has the Jews it deserves. Just as mosquitoes can thrive and settle only in swamps, likewise the former can only thrive in the swamps of our sins.”

The basic message of the quote is that much like how a decaying and disease-ridden body attracts flies and parasites, only a weak and decaying society can allow the jews to latch onto it and accelerate the decomposition of the festering gaping wounds, leading to its ultimate demise. Healthy societies have expelled the jews time and time again throughout history, whereas sick societies had fallen victim to them and faced ultimate destruction, least they managed to once again find their inner strength.

Thus arises the obvious question: where does the initial decay come from, where does the first sore appear, inviting in the jews and leading us on the path to the degeneracy we see today? Those of us who understand history to be cyclical, know that the engine of history is that of conflict and complacency. Conflict breeds strength, aspirations and leads to prosperity. Prosperity, however, becomes the inheritance of people who never knew conflict and that begets complacency – people who were handed that, which was fought for with blood, treat it as a given, leading to decay. This is something we have briefly touched upon in relation to conservatism in one of our earlier articles, and is likewise the premise of the antique Greek concept of Anacyclosis, one that we bring up regularly.

engineofhistory

This constitutes the short and fundamental answer to the question of “where does initial decay come from?” and this is the answer that will remain relevant throughout all of time for it strikes at the fundamental premise of the problem. What follows below, however, is a look at our own immediate history, to discover how this process played itself out in our times, which can serve as an example for future generations of what to watch out for. Moreover, this analysis will help us better identify who is responsible for the current state of affairs we face today, so that we may hold them accountable and not allow them to escape retribution.

In our immediate history the face of decay first began to take shape with the Bourgeoisie, who rose up against the traditional societal order and spearheaded ideas that would culminate in the French Revolution. Much of this is already widely known in our circles and doesn’t really need further prodding or elaborating, except for one particular element, which is the core of what one may call the “Bourgeoisie mentality”, for though the word is largely discarded nowadays, the mentality lives on and has been at the forefront of the social decay that allowed for jews and degeneracy to creep in and bloom. This mentality lives on in the liberal middle class.

This mentality is the natural consequence of living in prosperity without having ever known its price first hand: conquest, war, blood, strength of character. These are the things that are also closely linked to supremacy, hence prosperity is their reward. The following generations, however, inherit this prosperity, and a warped understanding arises, one that associates prosperity with not having to do anything at all, thus breeding decadence and a false sense of arrogant “supremacy“.

Prosperity is the consequence of true Supremacy – yet here the situation is reversed, and prosperity is deemed to be the evidence of supremacy. This is the trademark of the Bourgeoisie moralistic outlook, where wealth serves as proof of one’s supremacy, even if one merely inherited it and has not proven himself to be capable of living up to the legacy of those who procured that wealth in the first place. Sure, the Bourgeoisie do enjoy wealth they themselves accumulate through economic means, however they wouldn’t be able to do so in the first place, had conquerors not carved out a safe space for them beforehand (note, when we talk of the Bourgeoisie we don’t criticize them on an economic basis, but on the basis of moral outlook definitive of the Bourgeoisie, the very mentality we are addressing in this article). One can likewise easily see how this mentality is at the basis of the Calvinist heresy and its notion of material wealth being a sign of God’s favor.

Which leads us to the other important aspect of this mentality that has to do with inherited security that comes with prosperity. One who has not experienced any sort of hardships and proven himself to be truly Superior by overcoming said hardships is incredibly likely to be a weakling that would prefer to avoid any hardships at all – and thankfully he doesn’t have to in his inherited prosperity. Presence of prosperity without actions necessary to acquire it leads to a moralistic interpretation of supremacy, that simply dictates one being superior “just because he is good“, or rather “just because“, since “goodness” is often defined by such people as “not having done anything bad/wrong“.

This false sense of “supremacy” (in reality nothing more than pretentious smugness) breeds a particular kind of moralistic narcissism and moralistic hedonism, of being “morally superior” by virtue of not doing anything wrong. They get a literal psychological high off of the image of themselves that they construct in their minds: “I am such a good and virtuous person“. However, should this self-image come to be challenged (should someone “harsh their buzz” with some inconvenient truths) or start to wane, such people will quickly jump into “action” so as to sustain said image, for no other reason than to keep their self-appraising delusion going. This “action” is well known and defined now as virtue signalling. You are all well familiar with this kind of behavior and the many ways that it has been depicted and made fun of (prepare for a lot of South Park clips).

We can now summarize the mentality in question thusly:  I have all this wealth and prosperity, and I have not hurt anyone in achieving it, hence I am a good, righteous, morally superior person! I love myself so much for this!

Funny and relevant South Park clips aside, though, one might ask how exactly could this mentality have undermined, let alone led to the downfall of our Race and Civilization. Well simply look at the historical example of Gandhi, who had exploited this very mentality against the British Empire in order to provoke a virtue-signalling reaction from them that was favorable to his goals. You can pick up Robert Greene‘s 33 Strategies of War[pdf] for more details on how this unfolded. Below is the audiobook reading of Chapter 32, “Passive Aggression“, which deals with Gandhi’s tactic of exploiting the British Bourgeoisie mentality and need to virtue signal in the face of a threat to their self-image.

Mind you all, that Gandhi was by no means a true pacifist, he would have used violent means if it were plausible, but India was hopelessly inferior to the British Empire where conventional warfare was concerned, yet had he the means, by his own admission, he would have used them:

Had we adopted non-violence as the weapon of the strong, because we realised that it was more effective than any other weapon, in fact the mightiest force in the world, we would have made use of its full potency and not have discarded it as soon as the fight against the British was over or we were in a position to wield conventional weapons. But as I have already said, we adopted it out of our helplessness. If we had the atom bomb, we would have used it against the British.

-Speech (16 June 1947) as the official date for Indian independence approached (15 August 1947),
as quoted in Mahatma Gandhi: The Last Phase (1958) by Pyarelal Nayyar, p. 326.

But India had no atom bombs, and thus Robert Greene’s analysis comes to the forefront, solidifying what we have established thus far (highlights mine):

Gandhi was a deceptively clever strategist whose frail, even saintly appearance constantly misled his adversaries into underestimating him. The key to any successful strategy is to know both one’s enemy and oneself, and Gandhi, educated in London, understood the English well. He judged them to be essentially liberal people who saw themselves as upholding traditions of political freedom and civilized behavior. This self-image – though riddled with contradictions, as indicated by their sometimes brutal behavior in their colonies – was deeply important to the English. The Indians, on the other hand, had been humiliated by many years of subservience to their English overlords. They were largely unarmed and in no position to engage in an insurrection or guerrilla war. If they rebelled violently, as other colonies had done, the English would crush them and claim to be acting out of self-defense; their civilized self-image would suffer no damage. The use of nonviolence, on the other hand – an ideal and philosophy that Gandhi deeply valued and one that had a rich tradition in India – would exploit to perfection the English reluctance to respond with force unless absolutely necessary. To attack people who were protesting peacefully would not jibe with the Englishman’s sense of his own moral purity. Made to feel confused and guilty, the English would be paralyzed with ambivalence and would relinquish the strategic initiative.

[…]

Many people today are as ambivalent as the English were about having power and authority. They need power to survive, yet at the same time they have an equally great need to believe in their own goodness. In this context to fight people with any kind of violence makes you look aggressive and ugly. And if they are stronger than you are, in effect you are playing into their hands, justifying a heavy-handed response from them. Instead it is the height of strategic wisdom to prey upon people’s latent guilt and liberal ambivalence by making yourself look benign, gentle, even passive. That will disarm them and get past their defenses. If you take action to challenge and resist them, you must do it morally, righteously, peacefully. If they cannot help themselves and respond with force, they will look and feel bad; if they hesitate, you have the upper hand and an opening to determine the whole dynamic of the war. It is almost impossible to fight people who throw up their hands and do not resist in the usual aggressive way. It is completely confusing and disabling.

This analysis is correct when dealing with the modern mindset, the Bourgeoisie and liberal mindset, however it would be entirely incorrect if one were dealing with true conquerors who establish empires like the British one in the first place. Such people know the price of their own prosperity and security, including hardships that must be overcome and blood that must be spilled, your own and that of those who refuse to submit. Furthermore, we would do well to recall the words of Clausewitz, who stated that conquerors prefer submission and peace – it is the victim who makes the war, by refusing to submit. The nature of the refusal, peaceful or otherwise, is irrelevant. Gandhi had set out to wage war against the British Empire with the only means he had, but with full knowledge of their impact. Had Gandhi faced an opponent who was not muddled with petty narcissistic ideas like “self-image” he would have been utterly powerless and faced assured defeat.

That is how the inheritors of Empires, built up with blood and sacrifice, come to lose those Empires, as they grow complacent and overly concerned with their own self-image, motivated by their inherited prosperity and security. This is the starting point for ruin.

Yet this is but one example, however one can easily trace a parallel between the old Bourgeoisie mindset that lost Gandhi and the mindset of the modern liberal that is allowing degeneracy and muslim immigrants to overrun the West today. The quintessential face of this new Bourgeoisie is the American Dream family of the 1950s.

There are two fundamental issues with this visage that is being upheld by American conservatives (who are factually classical liberals as opposed to the American democratic neoliberals).

The first one being its standardized nature. The “American Dream” is a one size fits all model of having a suburban home with a white picket fence, a family of 4, at least one car and, optionally at no extra cost, a dog. The ideal American life is a husband doing his job, wife supporting the home, obedient kids, barbeques on the 4th of July and weekend wine mixers alternating with book club for the wives from the neighborhood. This is not an ideal to aspire to, this is standard to fall in line with. It seemingly maintains all the hallmarks of a traditional family, but in reality acts as a subversion of it in order to produce identical atomized individuals who fully comply with the expectations of the Jew-ridden System.

In the 2nd part (“The Engineering of Consent“) of the Adam Curtis documentary series “Century of the Self” it is well documented how in the 50s Americans were conditioned even psychologically to fit a certain standard model of behavior that was meant to be one of perpetual mindless happiness and conformity to the American “standard”. Below you will find the entire series comprised of 4 parts in one video.

The amount of various comical PSA (Public Service Announcement) films on topics including the “Do’s and Don’ts of Dating, “Family Dinner Etiquette“, “Are you Popular?and even “How to Undress” are further testament to how the entire population was being pigeonholed to fit a unified, standardized model most suited for the atomized individualist structure (it is also highly amusing to consider how American conservatives who love these PSA’s complain about State intrusion in private life). Lastly, we can turn to Francis Parker Yockey‘s IMPERIUM for further insight on the creation of the American standard (highlights mine):

A contest was recently held in America to find “Mr. Average Man.” General statistics were employed to find the center of population, marital distribution of the population, family-numbers, rural and urban distribution, and so forth. Finally a man and wife with two children in a medium-sized town were chosen as the “Average Family.” They were then given a trip to New York, were interviewed by the press, feted, solicited to endorse commercial products, and held up for the admiration of all those who fell short in any way of the desirable quality of averageness. Their habits at home, their life-adjustments generally were the subject of investigation, and then of generalizing. Having found the average man from the top down, his ideas and feelings were then generalized as the imperative-average thoughts and feelings.

To drive home the point of difference between an ideal that is to be aspired to and the standard to fall in line with, one must realize that the absolute ideal is different for each individual based on their particular nature, whereas a standard is based on a common denominator – one is fundamentally rooted in quality, the other in its universality and thus lack of quality. The American Dream is but the common denominator, a single digit in an atomized structure. This in of itself is bad enough from an authentic Fascist perspective.

However there is something else fundamentally wrong with this image, and that is how this American standard of American Life and Family are likewise rooted in a complete lack of awareness of the price of security and prosperity that they enjoy. And this was the model upheld and promoted for all Americans as the standard to comply with, compounding the problem of self-image faced by the old Bourgeoisie with a whole new layer of what constitutes one’s morality and “goodness“. This would later evolve into the turmoil of the 60s, when, much like Gandhi, the African-American Civil Rights Movement would stage numerous peaceful (and not so peaceful) protests that would provoke White Americans, who care about their self-image, into helping the jew and negro ruin their country even further. And they would do it for the sole reason of virtue signalling foremost to themselves that they truly are “good people”. Some may protest and say that the 60s were a clear break from the standard of the 50s, hence the rise of Hippies, and yet hippies are a direct tie-in to the same Bourgeoisie/Liberal mindset of virtue signalling one’s own goodness to themselves. They did, partially, breakaway from the american standard, but only so as to virtue signal to the niggers that they are no longer part of the “system” (what these opponents of surface-level politics call the “system”, and not the far more sinister enemy that we call by the same name with a capitol S). You can check the 3rd part (“There is a Policeman Inside All Our Heads; He Must Be Destroyed”) of the Century of the Self documentary on how a new psychological conditioning was employed that helped the 60s unfold as they did, this time feeding directly into the narcissistic aspect of the mentality we are discussing and the beloved “freedom” narrative, which would form the more familiar to us today strands of deviant and degenerate behavior.

In reality, however, the entire struggle of the time was done with American values in toe, and just as how Gandhi used Britain’s self-image, so did the jews, blacks and faggots use the American values and Constitution and the self-image cultivated and derived from them in order to undermine power in their favor (and said values were easy to exploit from the start anyway as said values had always been the values of materialists, rationalists, atheists and others, who are the jew’s prime customers).

The 50s are directly responsible for the 60s and thus for all other subsequent degeneracy (in as much as the 50s were a result of other events going back further than the French Revolution – the point being that the 50s were in no way some ideal of traditional values). This holy cow of american conservatism had always been a lie. The transition from the 50s to 60s seems to be a radical one only to people who have a limited scope and conform to an outlook that is incompatible with the Fascist/NS one, to us however, the change is insignificant qualitatively, from one lie to another, but all lies share a common aversion to Truth and thus fundamentally share certain points of negation of the Truth. Moreover, the supposed change did not stick, and everything was reversed back to the 50s model by the 90s, but with a contemporary face. Former hippies were now back in the mold of the American standard, further proving lack of any true qualitative difference.

This model persists today, but the standard has been generalized further for export worldwide, thus this form of decay finds itself nowadays in countries which did not experience the kind of prerequisite decay through prosperity that was necessary for countries which are now exporting degeneracy worldwide.

However, we are not done, for there had been developments in this mentality which has led it towards subversion of our movement, and that is the primary reason why we must come to understand the difference and uniqueness of the Fascist mindset, derived from our Worldview, as opposed to the Bourgeosie/Liberal mindset, derived from narcissism and hedonism – seemingly something obvious, and yet during this US presidential election we’ve clearly come to see a danger that must be addressed.

As an introduction to this point, we’ll once again address the topic of “White Pathology” or “pathological white altruism“. This concept could only have come from the mindset that we are discussing and criticizing here – the idea that the downfall of the White Race is the result of Whites being pathologically altruistic is nothing else but a form of virtue signalling – it is tantamount to asking a political candidate “what do you think is your greatest weakness?” and them responding with “I work too hard“.

The way this argument was born can be traced back to the American Dream, a whole society consisting of the same standard copied over millions of times. However not all can fit the mold, and those who do fit the mold would rather not have to see these “malformed” people, even if they are homeless whites.

ewgentrify

While it is clearly the pretension of this mindset to think of yourself as a good and moral person by some liberal standard, in practice these people are extremely offended by the presence of anything they don’t like – they like helping the homeless and the starving in theory, as a nominal act that is mostly done to satisfy their own ego with some insignificant token action, which is worth a lot more to them as an act of virtue signaling. However, they do not like the homeless and the starving in their own immediate vicinity. They are dirty, smell bad, look ugly, it ruins the carefully constructed standardized image to have something that disrupts the illusion. In an all white or majority white country it is easy to maintain that illusion and throw caution to the wind when it comes to token gestures, until the jew slips in a gesture that has far reaching consequences, but is sold to the dumb goyim as a way to satisfy their own ego, feeds their narcissism and makes them feel good about themselves in their subtle, psychological hedonism.

Let’s help the starving niglets in Africa, why not? We’ll never see one in person, but we’ll feel so very good about ourselves for sending some nominal help that doesn’t inconvenient us in the slightest but gives us such a rush of feeling good about ourselves.

“Oh those poor refugees on boats, we can’t deny them access to our country, I’m sure I’ll never have to actually live next to one of them, but I’ll feel so good about myself!”

Oh, a Black President! Politics never affected me in any tangible way so I doubt this will have directly tangible and readily apparent negative consequences, but what a rush, I’ll be able to brag about how progressive I am and feel good about myself!

That 50s American family standard thought in exactly the same patterns, hence why we have further decay today as this same thought pattern continues to destroy our Race and Civilization. Some of these people do manage to live with the consequences of their actions and continue on their merry ride on the “progressive” train to further ruin. Others, however, don’t, and have to resolve to means of removing themselves from the vicinity of the problem, rather than trying to remove the problem itself. Too many non-whites and homeless? We’ll set up a gated community – problem solved! For the moment. In reality the problem grows exponentially until such a point in time where you can no longer keep the undesirables out – “there’s niggers in tennis and golf clubs now as full fledged members for God’s sake! I can’t not invite them to the next cocktail mixer, WHAT WILL THE NEIGHBORS THINK? THAT I’M A BAD PERSON, A BIGOT, A RACIST!

The panic and realization of the newfound reality sets in for such people and they finally start wondering “how did it come to this?“, and the only “logical” conclusion such ilk can come to is “pathological altruism“, which is, in fact, yet another act of virtue signalling – “it’s because I am fundamentally too kind, I am such a good person that I’m too good! Who says there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing?” – “I’m too good“, “I work too hard“. What is pathological isn’t the altruism – because there is no authentic altruism here to begin with – but the blind and delusional narcissism. And how can they change this unfortunate state of affairs?

They can accept it and keep giving in to the demands of the increasingly entitled, arrogant and aggressive subraces and degenerates, until it reaches the sadomasochistic daze of an overdosed drug user that would, had Christianity not become a target of disdain for such people, compare themselves to Jesus in how much suffering they are willing to submit themselves to, as part of their orgiastic virtue-signaling delirium (so they result to comparing themselves to… Gandhi, obviously).

Or, the ones among them who are not yet high enough off their own farts to completely throw caution to the wind and forget about their own basic survival, they can drop some of their pretentious bullshit to try and salvage the rest of it. It is these “disillusioned” liberals, who suddenly begin preaching against multiculturalism and for the “white ethnostate“. They are only disillusioned in the liberal narrative as much as one of these gated community liberals would be upset about a homeless person walking down their street, hence the vagueness of their end goal of “white ethnostate“, which simply translates to a nation-wide gated community where they would carry on with the rest of their liberal bullshit, but without the undesirables to ruin the view. In throwing out the multicultural and multiracial narrative they are left no other option but to side with white nationalism, not because they feel any real racial kinship or understand higher values, but simply as a matter of securing their own, personal interests – “I happen to be white, so I have to throw in with the white nationalists”. They simply seek strength in numbers, they project their individual interest via a common denominator to a larger group.

It is thus, that these liberal minded vermin worked their way into the movement and began injecting it with false narratives like “white pathology“, likewise done by means of the same projection: “I’m white, and I’m such a good person, the very best, and these other white guys say whites are superior, and I know that I’m the best so it must be true, and you know why this is happening? It’s because I’m too good of a person, that’s what went wrong, in fact that’s the problem with our whole race really – we are just pathologically altruistic as a race, that’s what the problem is.

No. Whites are not “pathologically altruistic” – you are just pathologically narcissistic and you are the cause of this: decadent, hedonistic, virtue signaling scum that never had any intentions of living up to the deeds of your ancestors and the call of your blood, you are the face of our decay, a spiritual and physical weakling, result of the prosperity and security attained by men infinitely greater than yourself and you simply took all they built for granted and let it burn with a braindead smile on your face saying “This is fine” as the fire consumed the world around you. But so long as you felt good about yourself it didn’t matter, and only now, after having thrown everything to shit, you suddenly decide to “join the struggle” that you share no fundamental values with, and in reality stand for everything that we despise which had led to this state of affairs in the first place? No.

You will be held accountable as much as the jew, if not more so, because the jew simply acts according to his nature and we cannot expect different from him. The traitor always gets the bullet before the enemy.

And if we now discuss most recent history, we have to look to the appearance of the “Altright“, which we likewise have criticized time and again, and one of the articles by Max Macro had likewise drawn that distinct parallel between its advocates and those of the liberal mindset, using the “elegant dinner party” simile.

The Altright represents a new wave of “former” liberals who discovered undesirables in their gated community and who want to change the state of affairs, however they have presented themselves in such vague terms while using our themes, symbols and parts of our narratives  to such a degree that it became unclear at first glance as to whether they are our allies or not. However the real nature of Altright revealed itself quick enough during the course of this US presidential election, namely that of being the same liberals who are just more internet savvy and who, for some reason, were utilizing our materials, but ultimately not to uphold our values but to secure their own petty, personal interests.

The actions of the Altright do seem to have a parallel with another action of gated community liberals, namely of white flight and gentrification: “Well we ruined this place with our liberal bullshit and can’t keep these undesirables out, time to uproot move to a new place with low property value and gentrify it, make a new gated community out of it. Oh look at that spot, it’s kind of backwards and quaint isn’t it? Let’s spruce it up a bit, what a project! Are you excited? I know I am!

The Altright is the first ever attempt at “movement gentrification“, of attempting to subvert the tools and message of an existing movement in order to plant and secure their own petty agenda within it: “Well we ruined conservatism with our bullshit and can’t keep these niggers out, time to uproot and move to a new place, something with next to no respectability and gentrify it, make it more presentable. Oh look at that, Fascists! That’s kind of backwards and quaint isn’t it? Le’ts spruce it up a bit, what a project! I guess I don’t like democracy too much either, I’m so fashy tee-hee!

Thus the Altright attempt to use our tools and message but then proceed to harp on issues of “presentability” and “respectability“, try to declaw and defang our methods. To an extent this is a calculated method of self-preservation against the inevitable accusations of being Nazi if you don’t keep up fast enough with the progressive parade, hence the existence of the gay term “fashy“, as a kind of cute and quaint way of belittling the idea as being no more than a joke or a meme in order to deflect the accusation. This, obviously, never works, and these people get branded as “evil nazi white supremacists” regardless, but they do serve to confuse and steer people with potential away from becoming true and full fledged Fascists and National-Socialists, offering them that last easy way out of breaking with the System and the decaying society that holds them hostage.

Below is an accurate video presentation of Altright movement gentrification, complete with parody of Dickie Spencer’s Phalanx:

We’ve even had one crystal clear example of this, when one startup movement had stolen the design of another movement’s poster and after changing the name, logos and links, “gentrified” it by removing the swastika and the word “jews” from the poster – “NOW it’s presentable!” Look up any pictures of Dickie Spencer and his attempt at a 1950s Average Man braindead smile, or the Identity Evropa rally where they all look like they are protesting shortage of caviar at their golf/tennis club, listen to the pretentious intellectual voice of Jar Jar Taylor with his retarded little bow-tie.

Other obvious tell tale signs include the attempts to pander to the mainstream media, the exultation of intellectualism over character, defense or apologetics of faggotry, which is not surprising in the least – faggots are the ultimate bourgeoisie and thus the envy of straight bourgeoisie, who would love nothing more than to get the fag couple on the block to come over to their next wine mixer and hear their comments on the newly refurbished living room, and all the wives in the gated community have been just dying for a gay best friend to be a faghag to.

huwitestate
So long as the fags are white they are ALT-RIGHT with me, haha, yes, such witty banter!

Thankfully, one doesn’t have to worry about the Altright too much as its demise is inevitable, and just as the hippie protesters of the 60s seamlessly converted back to the American standard and the jewish narrative, so too will the Altright convert back to mainstream politics by means of its representatives actively seeking that and them being overrun with mainstream Trump supporters who are claiming the title for themselves. However one must avoid the danger of these liberals gentrifying potential Fascist/NS movements, while potential individual Fascists must hear loud and clear that Fascism and the Altright are in no way the same and cannot be allies by definition – a true Fascist/NS is not simply a racist liberal with bourgeoisie mindset, morality and sentimentalities and we shall not stand for people muddying our message and standing in its way as a detour that obscures the one and only path to the Truth:

 

And there are those that are by no means that way, and whose authors, far from being true followers of the doctrines, of which they display the visible symbols, represent in reality only themselves and use the prestige of the doctrine and the authority that it confers on them to promote their own interests, to satisfy personal grudges, or simply to give free reign to their passions.

-Savitri Devi, “The Religion of the Strong”

And for those that accuse us of “purity spiraling“, know this – we do as one of the great champions of our Worldview had instructed us to, thus proving once and for all, who we are, and who you are:

The greatness of any powerful organization, which embodies an idea in this world, depends on the absolutely religious fanaticism with which it establishes itself when compared to others. It must be fanatically convinced that it is right and just, and it must be absolutely intolerant of any idea or organization that is counter to its own teaching. If an idea is right and it takes up the sword of battle with this mind-set, it is invincible and any persecution only strengthens it.

-Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf V1, Ch12

We are the movement for the Worldview of Truth and Cosmic Order, the rest are nothing.

GOD IS DEAD – LONG LIVE GOD!

longlivegod

“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.” — so declared Nietzsche to the world in his “Science of Joy,” a statement to be later popularized via “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”. Yet most people misunderstand the message Nietzsche conveyed and thus atheists and nihilists use that declaration as a message of triumph, when in reality it was a statement of despair.

Before we continue with this article, we’d like for the reader to understand what we will be talking about when referring to God in this article. In the previous articles published on NOOSE we have occasionally talked about the Ultimate Truth and the Cosmic Order – the central core of the Fascist Worldview. These same things can be understood and expressed in a number of ways, depending on the conceptual and symbolic language/narrative employed, thus they have also been referred to, for example, as the Absolute, or, more commonly, as God. What all these words have in common at their core, regardless of the narrative employed behind them (be it an abstract spiritual force, a host of pagan Gods, or the Christian God), is an understanding of a spiritual force that pervades and rules supreme over all. It governs all of life and gives it structure and order, from the physical laws of the universe to the intricate nature of the Human condition. Ultimate Truth / Cosmic Order / The Absolute / God(s) are expressions of that spiritual force by different means, which are not the subject of this article. Thus we aim to simplify the narrative presented in this article by referring to them all simply as God, not necessarily specifically the Christian or any other God, but nevertheless not excluding them either.

The deeper nature of these narratives and their correlation is something that will be explored in depth in a series of articles that will be published by IronMarch at a future date. This article, however, will be focusing on the issue of mankind losing its connection with that spiritual force, the consequences of that, and what it has to do with the Fascist Struggle. Thus, let us continue with the article proper.

God is dead” is a statement of fact, the fact being how mankind has lost its connection to the spiritual world (for if we can no longer perceive God, he might as well be dead to us), which ultimately leaves us stranded in the desacralized, material world without a guiding light towards which we could orient ourselves – with no objective, absolute law ordained from a higher source. Nietzsche did not, in fact, celebrate this state of affairs, but was horrified of it and thus sought a solution – Nietzsche was not a nihilist, but to the contrary, an anti-nihilist, seeking a solution to nihilism as a problem that mankind faced in the absence of God.

As much as he may have had his qualms with Christianity, it nevertheless presented such a guiding light to men, without which we are but rudderless ships lost in a storm. Where else could man turn to, in such a state of affairs, other than himself and his own strength? When men lose their connection with God they can do nothing else but rely on themselves – thus the man-centric conception of the world is born, which is exactly what Nietzsche had contributed to, by promoting Will to Power and the Übermensch, fine additions to what Oswald Spengler defined as Faustian culture, all things associated with the nature of Titans.

In many ways Nietzsche comes to mankind as an earthly counterpart of the Norse God Heimdallr, who blows the Gjallarhorn to signify the beginning of Ragnarök and the coming of a host of Chthonic/Elemental forces (e.g. Fenrir, Jörmungandr, the Jötunn giants, etc) that would wage war against the Gods. Whereas Heimdallr warns the Gods of the start of Ragnarök, Nietzsche comes to mankind with a message that the Twilight of the Gods has already arrived – we are living it. The world of man has been submerged into the “waters“. However, at the exact same time it is Nietzsche that promotes the coming of the Elemental Giants (Titans) via his concept of the Übermensch – man as a law onto himself.

The Bronze Age is also marked by the unleashing of the principle proper to the warriors’ caste, namely, pride, violence, war. The corresponding myth is the Titanic or Luciferian revolt, or the Promethean attempt to steal the Olympian fire. The age of “giants,” or of the Wolf, or of the “elemental beings;’ is an equivalent figuration found in various traditions and in their fragments preserved in legends and epics of various peoples.

-Julius Evola, Mystery of the Grail

Twilight of the Gods” and “God is Dead” are one and the same notion. They are different narratives for the same event of mankind losing its connection with the spiritual world, ushering in materialism, nihilism, rationalism, atheism and other concepts that lie at the heart of modern degeneracy and decay, associated with Faustian, Titanic, Promethean and Luciferian themes, unified in a simple formula: Man must become his own God and take control of God’s creation. Such a man is an Übermensch  a Titan. 

The true message of the Norse myth, along with many other similar traditional narratives, warns mankind of its inevitable downfall into ignorance of the Higher Order of life as ordained by God. This ignorance would force man to find a new absolute law to orient himself towards, and he would inevitably place it in himself. Man becomes the end in of himself, thus his own desires are of the utmost importance, his own mind and ego are the ultimate judges of his own conduct.

Let us map out the timeline of the Death of God:

  • Mankind loses sight of God and is left bereft of a guiding light.
  • Mankind begins to look inwards and cultivates the man-centric worldview. This stage is best embodied by the Enlightenment Era. This is the Luciferian/Promethean aspect, where man begins to place value in himself above all else, including God. These processes are tantamount to Lucifer’s revolt against the Christian God and to Prometheus stealing the Fire of the Gods from Mount Olympus, bringing it down to man.
  • Once this self-obsession is cultivated, it is directed outwards against nature/God’s creation as man attempts to subjugate everything to himself. This stage is best embodied by the Industrialization Era.  This is the Faustian aspect, where man uses his own reason, will power, science and technology to manipulate the world around him. Here we witness the birth of Titans, the Nietzschean Übermensch, driven by his Will to Power.

At this stage man essentially becomes the “perfect animal“, the “king of earthly beasts” so to speak. Yet this state of affairs cannot last for two major reasons. First of all, when man places value and ultimate authority within himself he can negotiate with himself and thus compromise on anything. Man cannot negotiate with a Higher Order, but he can always negotiate with himself, which is what we can witness today as people rationalize their shortcomings and degeneracy. Secondly, man becomes a slave to his own mechanical creations by means of which he exerted his dominance against nature, which helps further degenerate mankind. Man grows lazy, complacent, compliant, and his Will to Power withers away, leaving something even less than animal, something subhumanThis is the era we find ourselves in now. The Fall of Titans.

However, just as Mankind was warned of its downfall, so it was likewise foretold of its restoration by means of coming to know the Higher Order of life once again. All traditional narratives talk of how in the last and darkest age after the Death of God there would come Heroes who would dispel the darkness and restore God’s Law on Earth.

The last age is the Iron Age, or, according to the corresponding Hindu term, the Dark Age (Kali Yuga). This age includes every de consecrated civilization, every civilization that knows and extols only what is human and earthly. Against these forms of decadence there emerged the idea of a possible cycle of restoration, which Hesiod called the heroic cycle or age of heroes. Here we must employ the term heroic in a special, technical sense distinct from the usual meaning. According to Hesiod, the “generation of heroes” was created by Zeus, that is to say, by the Olympian principle, with the possibility of reattaining the primordial state and thus to give life to a new “golden” cycle.

-Julius Evola, Mystery of the Grail

Through the reconciliation of the Titan and Hero archetypes, who are cut from the same cloth, the titanic Will to Power would be directed towards the restoration of the Cosmic Order and thus it would be converted into a Will to Truth.

Heracles earns Olympian immortality after allying himself to Zeus, who is the Olympian principle, against the “giants”; according to one of the myths of this cycle, it is through Heracles that the “titanic” element (symbolized by Prometheus) is freed and reconciled with the Olympian element.

[…]

The titanic type – or, in another respect, the warrior type – is, after all, the prime matter of which heroes are made.

-Julius Evola, Mystery of the Grail

It is the overcoming of the Nietzschean Übermensch, granting Nietzsche’s legacy a positive connotation.

Freeing the doctrine of Nietzsche from its naturalistic aspects, one sees that the “superman” and the “will-to-power” are not real except as supra-biological, and, we should say, supra-natural qualities. Then this doctrine, for many, can be a path by which the great ocean can be reached – the world of the solar universality of great Nordic-Aryan traditions – from whose summit the meaning of all the misery, irrelevance and insignificance of this world of prisoners and lunatics can at last be grasped.

-Julius Evola, Heathen Imperialism

It is the appearance of what Savitri Devi called Men Against Time, those who fight for the Eternal in the world of change, counting Adolf Hitler as one in their number.

The saviours in the worldly sense of the word — those who set out to perfect not merely men’s souls but men’s collective life and government, and international relations — are what we call men “against Time.” And they are necessarily violent, although not always physically so. They may be, — in fact, they should be, — personally free from the bondage of Time, if they are to act with the maximum of foresight and efficiency. But they have to take into consideration the conditions of action “within Time” to live “in” Time, also, in a way.

-Savitri Devi, Lightning and the Sun

It is the coming of the Wildes Heer – the Wild Hunt, heroes sacrificing themselves in battle to aid Odin in Ragnarök

First of all, as is well-known, Valhalla is the centre of celestial immortality, reserved mainly for heroes fallen on the battlefield. The lord of this place, Odin-Wotan, is presented to us in the Ynglingasaga as having shown to the heroes the path which leads to the place of the gods, where immortal life flourishes. According to this tradition no sacrifice or cult is more appreciated by the supreme god, and none produces richer fruits, than that sacrifice which one offers as one falls fighting on the battlefield. In addition to this, behind the confused popular representation of the Wildes Heer this meaning is hidden: through the warriors, who, falling, offer a sacrifice to Odin the power is increased which this god needs for the ultimate battle against the Ragna-rökkr, that is, the “darkening of the divine”, which has threatened the world since ancient times. This illustrates clearly the Aryan motif of the metaphysical struggle.

-Julius Evola, The Metaphysics of War

It is, indeed, the coming of Fascists and National-Socialists – the last Heroes of the cycle, the last Titans who turned their Will to Power into a Will to Truth. We practice what is described in Buddhism as, negation of negation: in our opposition to the forces that denied God’s Law we reaffirm it once again, restoring the Cosmic Order in human affairs. It is the path of restoration on a civilizational and racial scale, rather than the path of individual salvation, yet the latter will follow suit with the former.

Such is the true essence of the Fascist struggle – to deny the forces of decay, involution and degeneracy and in that denial restore all the positive aspects of the human condition. It is nothing short of a Holy War, a spiritual and physical Crusade against the forces of materialism, secularism, atheism, rationalism, humanism, egalitarianism, hedonism, relativism, utilitarianism, nihilism, i.e. the powers of ruin that only seek “nothingness, nothingness without end“.

Thus, to Nietzsche’s desperate cry of “God is Dead!” we will give our roaring and triumphant battle cry: “God is Dead – LONG LIVE GOD!”

CHARACTER VS INTELLECTUALISM

CHARACTER

We’ve already had a couple of articles by Greve Hans that dealt with anti-intellectualism, but we’ll have one more crack at this subject. This time, however, we will present what it is that Fascism/NS prizes over intelligence and why exactly it is incompatible with intellectualism.

The prevalent default dichotomy that people just go with is that of smart vs dumb people, the former being “good” or at the very least “better” than the latter. The emphasis on this dichotomy took hold with the rise of Rationalism and the Enlightenment, when it was cemented that the “rational”, “smart” and “intelligent” people should form the social elites as the “most” capable.

Such origins alone should signal to proper Fascists that there is something suspect going on here, and for good reason. For all intents and purposes Intellectualism is fetishization of intellect, whereupon intelligence becomes a measure of social worth and thus social status. What follows, is that if one wants to rise in his social standing, he must prove himself to be intelligent, and thus achieve the title of higher social standing “intellectual”.

However, what this does, is create a proverbial rat race to prove one’s intellect even when one does not possess said intellect, for blind ambition is most often found with fools, as the Dunning–Kruger effect will attest. In fact the less a man understands a given subject, the more likely he is not to realize all the mistakes he is making, whereas someone actually knowledgeable in the subject can correctly evaluate their own shortcomings (consider all the singing competitions in the world and how many delusional people are convinced their shitty singing is amazing). Same effects apply to intellectualism – people aspire to be regarded as “intellectuals“, as smart, however they may only be smart enough to read truly intelligent or complicated texts, but not understand them – and therein lies the origin of most intellectuals. This is a problem that Adolf Hitler highlighted in Mein Kampf, when he talked of how most people don’t know how to read:

In either case, what is read shouldn’t simply be stored in the memory like a list of facts and figures. The facts, like bits of a mosaic tile, should come together as a general image of the world, helping to shape this world image in the reader’s head. Otherwise, there will be a confusion of information learned, and the worthless mix of facts gives the unhappy possessor an undeserved high opinion of himself. He seriously believes he is “cultured and learned” while thinking he has some understanding of life and is knowledgeable simply because he has a stack of books by his bed. Actually, every piece of new information takes him further away from the real world, until often he ends up either in a psychiatric hospital or as a “politician” in government.

-MK, V1, Ch2

These people, fueled foremost by the desire to achieve a certain social standing, put on a pageantry of supposed intelligence by trying to dazzle everyone with fancy and complex words or concepts that they picked up from smart books. Sometimes, not even that – as intellectuals feeds off each other, thus they will gladly regurgitate each other’s nonsense. One of the favorite maneuvers of intellectuals is to take something simple and dress it up with needlessly complex phrasing to, once again, give off the appearance of being intelligent.

The more honest term for these people is “smart idiots” as Julius Evola described them in Chapter 14 of The Bow and Club.

HfO1OxY

In short, Intellectualism is the fetishization of intellect, where intelligence becomes a goal in and of itself. It creates the desire in people of weak character to propel themselves socially by giving off the illusion of being intelligent (though often even some truly intelligent people are of weak character). In the process of striving for that social status they actually manage to fool even themselves into thinking they possesses high intellect.

Coupled with the idea of egalitarianism, this created the conditions for the “rat race of smarts“, where anyone is supposedly capable of achieving high intellect, and thus enjoy the social position from whence to sneer down on those who had not achieved the same. This being motivated, in the first place, by envy of those held in high esteem for intellect above oneself (regardless if their esteem is well earned or not).

The whole of modern society is actually built on perpetuating this misguided ambition with motivations of mass higher/academic education. An education which is, in fact, used to socialize and thus integrate people into the System, our mortal foe. Yet it is done under the guise of creating “intelligent” people, where one’s intellect and rightful social standing is proven by nothing more than a piece of paper. In USA this is also coupled with a larger usury scheme of student loans. One has to wonder how smart a person truly is, if he is willing to be duped out of his money in a simple swindle, for the promise of becoming an “intellectual“.

In psychology, the mass idea has triumphed, so that “genius” is equated with high intelligence, and the latter with “college education.” Again — no qualitative differences among persons. The commercial maxim is “You can buy brains.”

-IMPERIUM, by Francis Parker Yockey

However, one not being deluded by the System’s institutions of learning does not mean one has escaped its larger influence of placing value in intellect as a goal in of itself, hence all the “fringe” intellectuals, the self-taught and self-read wannabes who merely covet the same aspirations as the lemmings in the halls of modern academia – they simply do so “from the outside”. This, in fact, likewise gives them a sense of intellectual superiority as they believe themselves too smart to fall for the System’s influence, despite the fact that they follow the same aspirations everyone else has been told to uphold.

If a lemming intellectual is hard to get through to, because he believes himself intelligent by virtue of his diploma, then the fringe intellectual is hard to get through to, because he believes himself intelligent by virtue of “not having been fooled” by the System. In either case they will tell you of how much smarter they are than you because of a piece of paper or because of how they “know” what’s “really going on“.

The worst offenders of the latter type are the people who claim to be on the same side as ourselves, but immediately try to assume a position of superiority based on their delusion of personal intellectual grandeur, and regard the rest as their personal army of foot soldiers, whom they can “direct” with their “high intelligence“. This “intellectual vanguard” (sometimes self-described as “the brains”), that sneers down on the people who would actually get things done (“the muscle”), forgets that after any revolution the first group to be purged from society is, in fact, the intellectuals. Moreover, most ills of modern day can be traced back to ill-conceived ideas of the intellectual strata.

All of this, however, is not to say that education is wrong, but rather, to point out how its purpose has been completely perverted and transformed from cultivating useful knowledge for practical purposes, to cultivating a sense of self-worth, measured by one’s “intelligence“. Neither are we harping on intellect or intelligence itself (and thus, by extension, on the truly intelligent people), rather we oppose the transformation of those things into social credentials.

In the end, one can hardly be surprised by the Fascist/NS opposition to intellectualism and all self-professed intellectuals. The former necessitates a kind of social structure that is incompatible with our ultimate goals and allows for the rise in society of people who are unworthy of the posts they might assume. The latter presents a person of low quality trying to pass themselves off as someone worthy of your admiration, respect, and even obedience, based on their own self-evaluated “higher” intellect.

Fascism/NS outright reject the inflated importance of the smart/idiot dichotomy and opposes intellectualism with Character. Where Modern World Rationalists place Intellect, Fascism and National-Socialism places Character. This is because unlike intelligence, one cannot pretend to cultivate it artificially or pretend to have any other kind of Character than the one they truly have.

I would strongly compel everyone to read Ernst Junger’s interwar article on Character for the best insight to its nature and importance, but we will nevertheless provide some quotations from it and other Fascist/NS sources.

Unlike the Age of Enlightenment we believe character to be the highest value – that is the most important sign of our inner transformation.

-Ernst Junger

One’s Character is their true inner nature. Fascism prizes the great, strong, firm character over the weak and soft, for that is the character that can uphold our values and honor Truth. One’s intelligence comes second, for a person of great character may not be the smartest, but he will stand taller than the person of weak character, who is more intelligent. In fact, the latter is the perfect description of the intellectual, of the modern man in general.

The person of weak character desperately needs some modicum of intelligence to have the skills for rationalizing why his lack of will power (a trait of a strong character) doesn’t matter or should not be taken into account. It is these people who will try to intellectually justify degeneracy – foremost their own, and then that of others, to secure their own standing. “Faggotry is not a problem” is something only a faggot or a smart idiot will say, ignoring that faggotry is often the consequence of a small and weak character, as is the case for all degeneracy.

A simple and humble man may be far more virtuous than the intellectual, and thus we do not prize intellect itself and would not offend said man for not being the smartest. “Smart” and “dumb” do not figure in our worldview as substitutes for “good” and “bad“, nor do they rank as the all-defining human traits – only Character can fulfill that task. Thus we also do not recognize the “smart” jobs as the superior ones, instead we recognize the effort of the man fulfilling the task he was meant for, as per his Character:

“Each has his task in the community, given to him according to his gifts. Never do all have the same task, but rather each his own. His task gives him a place in the community, if he fulfills it completely, he wins the esteem of the others. He is happy, even if his task is not large in the overall scheme of things.”

“A worker on the street can stand higher in the ranks than a government minister if he has better done his duty.”

-Faith and Action, by Helmut Stellrecht

In reality, intelligence is a tool, and like any tool it can be wielded for good or ill, and what determine’s ones use of that tool is, again, Character. The small man will use intellect to justify his shortcomings and to secure his petty interests, to protect his own hide and swindle others. Thus intellect serves to create ideas like equality and communism. A great man will use intellect in service to a higher task that he seeks to realize, in service to a greater principle that dictates a necessity, rather than a personal whim. Thus intellect serves to create the Organic State.

As our spiritual experience shows, above the outer logic of reason, conditioned by the senses, rises an internal logic of fate. And we perceive it not by the brain, but by blood which uses the brain for its own goals or in spite of it. The arguments of blood are not convincing, they are compulsory. Its goals are not logical constructs but are the consequence of necessity. It’s main organ is the heart. And that which in relation to the brain we call reason, in relation to the heart we call character.

-Ernst Junger

It thus follows that we also do not recognize the notion of an “Intellectual Elite” as the leaders of State and Nation, seeing how the qualifications for such an elite would once again put men of weak and small character above men of great character (hence our laughter when self-proclaimed intellectuals deem themselves to be the “brain” to our “muscle”). The only elite possible in Fascism/NS is the natural-born leaders, men of great character, what Francis Parker Yockey called the “culture-bearing stratum“, the natural spiritual minority within any given culture who represent its absolute best:

Races and nations express themselves at their highest potential in strong individuals, who embody the prime national characteristics, and acquire immense historical symbolic significance.

Not intelligent or smart individuals, but strong individuals, men of great character, that is the primary prerequisite, what follows is their natural talents and aptitudes, including intelligence, which they can apply for the best effect:

The notion of prominence is related to the idea of the Culture-bearing stratum in this way: every man who is prominent in any field, and who also has inner gifts, of vision, appreciation, or creativeness, naturally belongs to this stratum.

Hence why it has always been Fascism/NS that attracted exactly this type of people:

Only Authority represents a step forward, and thus the strongest, most vital, creative elements in the Culture-bearing stratum are found in the service of the resurgence of Authority.

Which likewise accounts for why Fascism/NS had attracted into its ranks people from all walks of life, from all social fields and classes – something that has been a mystery to our enemies for the longest time. Our worldview did not attract people on the basis of interests or existing social standing or common secondary attributes, such as intelligence – it attracted that very culture-bearing stratum who felt the “compulsory argument of blood” to do “that which is necessary” and whose representatives are hidden throughout society:

“The Culture-bearing stratum is not recognized by its contemporaries in any way as a unity, nor does it recognize itself as one. As a stratum it is invisible, like the Culture it carries. Because it is a purely psychic stratum, it can be given no material description to satisfy the intellectuals.”

“The Culture-bearing stratum, articulated into creators and appreciators, is invisible as such. It corresponds to no economic class, no social class, no nobility, no aristocracy, no occupation. Its members are not all public figures by any means. But by its existence, this stratum actualizes a High Culture on this earth.”

One other Fascist figure who wrote on this same culture-bearing stratum, from which the elite could be formed, was Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, in his autobiography “For My Legionaries”:

A people is not capable of governing itself. It ought to be governed by its elite. Namely, through that category of men born within its bosom who possess certain aptitudes and specialties.

Furthermore, when he qualified the necessary characteristics of an elite, he does not once mention intellect, instead listing qualities that are also properties of Character:

On what must an elite be founded?
a) Purity of soul.
b) Capacity of work and creativity.
c) Bravery.
d) Tough living and permanent warring against difficulties facing the nation,
e) Poverty, namely voluntary renunciation of amassing a fortune.
f) Faith in God.
g) Love.

Finally, Codreanu talks about how a new elite may be born only in a direct confrontation:

And if a nation has no real elite – a first one to designate the second? I answer by a single phrase which contains an indisputable truth: in that case, the real elite is born out of a war with the degenerate elite, the false one. And that, also on the principle of selection.

Anyone familiar with the history of Fascist/NS movements can clearly see how all of these things have been proven in practice, that it were men of great character and natural gifts, which were used in service to that character and the higher goal, that made up the ranks of our movements, and in their struggle against the enemy in power a new elite was formed, forged by fire and in various trials and tribulations. The kind of trials and tribulations that would leave weak men of intellect crushed underfoot and tossed to the curb.

When George Lincoln Rockwell put a new recruit to the test, it wasn’t a test of intelligence, but a test of Character, as the second chapter of White Power will attest:

He actually convinced me he wanted to try to be a Storm trooper!

As a matter of policy, whenever I hear that (as I do every day), I do all I can to discourage the applicant. We want no dabblers, but dedicated, fanatical fighters who will STICK through hell itself. With this crazy character, I went even further. I made fun of him. I told him he’d never make it, that we’d run him off the first day.

He rose to the challenge.

“You name it, and I’ll make it!” he said.

Strangely, I could sense a fiercely burning WILL behind the words. I told him he couldn’t come up to try life as a Nazi Storm-trooper until he was eighteen. He left, vowing to return in a few months. He did return – without the beatnik get-up. He turned out to be a blonde, young Viking, built for combat.

We poured it to him.

There was no place left inside for him to sleep. So he was assigned to a wrecked car out back. It was still winter and cold. But the kid moved into the wrecked car with a couple of blankets. We put him to work cleaning the toilets, and yard.

He worked.

Spring came, and then a broiling summer. He was still in the wrecked car, eaten alive by mosquitoes. I tried him on the printing press, and never saw such a bear for work. He was all dried out of booze, off the pills and dope, exercising plenty, and showing every sign of “making it.”

A weak intellectual would never submit himself to such treatment, for his character wouldn’t be able to take it, and he would rationalize that this was all either beneath him or did not test his “true” value to the cause, that of his “high-brow” “intelligence“. The intellectual would rather prove himself with a smartly written program, but as we know from, again, Codreanu: “This country is dying of lack of men, not of lack of programs…”

What we lack is men of great, strong character, whom the weak-willed intellectuals will disregard as “dumb” “muscle” that requires their “guidance“.  For our enemy doesn’t fear the intellectual, someone who deals with rationalizing all their life is easy pray for coopting and molding into something that can be worked with or even outright ignore, whereas a man of character will stand on principle no matter what and will not accept anything less than the complete satisfaction of the compulsory demand in his blood:

They fear an impotent, weak-willed genius less than they fear a forceful nature with only modest intellect.

-MK, V1, Ch2

No matter whom you look at in the Pantheon of Fascist champions, you cannot in all honesty declare any of them “intellectuals“, rather you see men of great Character who also possessed great intellect, and not necessarily academic smarts, but worldly knowledge of how the world around them operates. That intellect was subservient to their goals and their character, establishing them foremost as Men of Action, rather than men of pen and paper. Even well educated people like William Luther Pierce spoke without pretense of intellectual superiority, and the content of their speeches was always that of Action, as opposed to the kind of speaking one might hear during various “think tank” get-togethers.

These people spoke plainly but they spoke of things of great magnitude, something that is impossible for an intellectual, for his instinct drives him towards either analyzing and dismantling and picking away at things until there is nothing left; or towards making mountains out of molehills as they proceed to over-intellectualize the most basic of things. Intellect left to its own devices is a tool for tearing at the very fabric of reality or satisfying one’s own ego, whereas the intellect subservient to great character is a creative force that helps us return closer to the Truth.

These types think themselves to be the next social elite, whereupon they can occupy stuffy cabinets with leather chairs and sip wine whilst stroking each other’s egos over meaningless yammering coated in complex wording. Well let them dream. Reality of the matter is, however, that history shall repeat itself once again, as these intellectuals will find themselves trampled underneath the jackboots of “low brow” “thugs” (the favored insult towards fascists in the past, all of them, from Hitler and Mussolini to Sir Oswald Mosley and Rockwell, to Codreanu, Italo Balbo, Joseph Tommasi and etc) – the very ones they thought would be doing their bidding.

And from the ranks of those “thugs” the new elite will come forth.

FIRST STEP TO ADVENTURE

First step to Adventure

The purpose of NOOSE foremost always was to be a Fascist Lifestyle zine, where Fascists can share about their passions, boast of their accomplishments and provide insight into how this or that activity helped them shape themselves in one regard or another. However, for the most part so far it has been just another commentary blog, something we’re working to fix (with some art and activity articles on the way) and perhaps this article will help with that.

My goal for this article is to provide you with an idea of how to start going on adventures – if you were to look at the people who had essentially helped inspire Italian Fascism and a lot of its aesthetics, you would find larger-than-life personalities. For these men, life was all one grand adventure that had to be embraced to the fullest.

Gabriele D’Annunzio was a poet and dandy who became a pilot when he was already over 50, which he did in order to fight in the First World War. Later still, he and a grand army of adventurers took over an entire city, which they ruled as their own domain for a little over a year, sustaining it with piracy and turning the whole endeavor into a theatrical performance. With him were other figures like Guido Keller, the dashing pilot-corsair who never flew without his tea service and once had to land his plane on a pig! The father of Futurism, Tommaso Marinetti, had likewise partaken in this endeavor and also contributed to a very Fascist attitude towards life:

Today we preach a methodical and everyday heroism; a taste for despair that encourages the heart to give up all it’s fruits, a habit for enthusiasm; intoxicating madness… We preach a leap into gloomy death under the watchful and clear gaze of the Ideal! We preach by example, giving ourselves to the fierce dressmaker that is War, who carved out for us a fitting scarlet uniform. Brand new beneath the sun, it will put light in our hair, which was combed by bombs.

Thus the heat of the summer evening paints the fields with the flickering lights of fireflies. It is necessary that people electrify their nerves with insane pride every day!.. It is necessary that people be ready to bet their own lives in an instant, not paying attention to the roguish dealer, nor controlling the balance of the roulette that had sprawled over the vast green carpets of war, so cherished by the dubious lamp that is the sun… It is necessary – understand this! – for the soul to cast the body into the fire, like a fire-ship is cast against the foe… an eternal foe, one that ought to have been invented, had he not already existed!

“Let’s kill the moonlight”

Of course, these people come from the Golden Age of Heroes, adventurers, travelers and explorers, who lived to see that crucial “changing of ages” period of history. When the First World War signaled the coming of monumental things, and these figures we mentioned above rode the wave of history and the last adventures it had to offer them, the War itself became an adventure. However, this spirit was still alive and well in the 70s, in what became known as the Years of Led, where one Fascist Terrorist, Pierluigi Concutelli, led his own life of adventure in the struggle against the System.

All of this is to say that the Fascist Lifestyle is one that also treats life as an adventure, a challenge, a game to be embraced and played, courting Danger and flirting with Death – “For us an accident would be to die in bed.” By all accounts “YOLO” should have always been a Fascist slogan that would call on people to become bold and daring, instead of being a rationalization for engaging in degeneracy. A lot of that adventurous romanticism is gone nowadays, however the spirit of adventure is always alive, one only has to embrace it, and it will resurface in forms that will befit the circumstances we find ourselves in today. So how does one take his first step to adventure?

You just do it. The lifeblood of adventuring in spontaneity, you can’t overthink it, you just have to do it. This seems both an overly simplistic answer and at the same time a huge demand, but there is no other trick to this other than diving in head first without much time spent contemplating what you are about to do. Yet it is true that most people are too used to their routines and comforts to just drop everything at a moments notice and go off galloping towards adventure, which is why this kind of spontaneity has to be cultivated. That is the real essence of the advice we’re offering here.

Your first adventures don’t have to be big. They can be very minor and simple things. But, if you learn to just engage in them, to just say “Yes” to the offer when it comes around, you can develop that spontaneous readiness for adventure that will help you transition to bigger and more exciting activities. An initial adventure can be something as simple as going out on the town with friends, just do it at a moment’s notice and drop everything else. Next time you can travel to a different city, perhaps a hike or a train ride away. After that you can go exploring into the woods, explore abandoned locations, go rafting, travel to a neighboring country, a far away country, and on it goes…

Most adventures begin with the words: "No time to explain, let's go!"
Most adventures begin with the words: “No time to explain, let’s go!”

Yes, of course the latter examples demand respective levels of planning, however, once you’ve developed a spontaneous nature with smaller activities (and better still maintain in with such small activities in between large ones) you’ll be more open to these bigger prospects and the minimal necessary preparations will become an issue to solve, rather than an excuse not to do them at all. With smaller things the excuses are likewise small and take less to overcome.

The other key aspect to this is the initial push towards an activity. If you have a friend who always calls you out to do something of this nature your answer should always be “Yes” – if you don’t have such a friend then you yourself must become that person to your own friends.

Allow me to provide some examples from personal experience: I have such a comrade who is big on the Italian adventurous side of Fascism. Sometimes, his enthusiasm and desire for such adventures really pushes him towards some funny proposals of mimicry, for example the idea of the Fiume City-State conquered by a band of adventurous rebels was enough for him to tell me “let’s take over a building, hoist a flag on it and call it our building-state!” Sure, the idea is absurd, at least here. In Italy, Casa Pound does exactly that – take over buildings that is, not pronounce building-states. Out of the two, however, it is the former that presents the real challenge.

In my experience it has been this guy who would call me out of the blue and say “Hey let’s go to X right now! These guys are already coming too!” This would sometimes come at inopportune times, but this guy did this fairly often. Although for the first few times I would decline, I’d later start agreeing more and more, until a call from him was enough to start thinking that I need to get dressed and run out or change my plans for the day. Inevitably, I started calling with proposals of getting together myself.

We’d go to pubs and then walk around the city, nothing fancy but it was a time spent in company of friends and comrades which always resulted in fun times, even if nothing of note happened. Later this would transform into calls of “let’s go to another city for the weekend”. No planning other than to buy the train tickets there, or bus tickets as it so happened one time. Mind you, these weren’t short trips as such if you’re not used to traveling, 12 hours in a bus can be tiresome, though if you’re in a big company of comrades it is hardly an issue. Why did we go to another city? We only had a concrete reason to go there once, every other time was justified with “just because”. We made no plans about where we would be staying, what we would actually be doing, though a big part of it was of course that we simply know people in the other city, so if nothing else it was about meeting some comrades in person and doing the same thing that our group did back home: go around town and spend some time in a pub. But it was fun, and it was spontaneous.

There were people willing to put us up for the night, and if not, well, sleep is for the weak, anyway. It’s an adventure – let’s pull an all-nighter! There will be time to sleep on the bus or train ride home, provided that is an option.

One time we went to a town much closer just for the day, but didn’t have the money for the full trip there, so we only bought tickets till the first stop and after that proceeded to hop train compartments once we saw the conductors coming. The trip there and back with the constant train hopping in order to avoid the conductors was more fun than the actual time we spent in the town, but that is what made the trip memorable and fun, and insert generic quote here about journeys and destinations here.

-Did you check?
-Yeah two coming from that side!
-Okay let’s move to the back junction with the other compartment.
-Fuck! There’s another one from that side!
-Don’t panic we’re close to a stop!
-The hell, she’s checking tickets faster on this side!
-RUN TO THE OTHER END!
-Aaah those guys are almost on us from this side too!
-We’re stopping! OKAY, RUN TWO  COMPARTMENTS FORWARD!

Sure we might get some scars along the way - but think of the stories they'll tell!
Sure we might get some scars along the way – but think of the stories they’ll tell!

I honestly wish I had turned on the camera in my phone and just recorded those kinds of exchanges and how we ran through the snow on the platform two compartments back to get behind one of the conductors. On our way back we had actually been caught and cornered in the junction between compartments by one conductor who was ready to write us up a big fine, which we avoided by the negotiating skills of another train-hopper who had joined our mad dashes between compartments through the snow, when he offered the conductor a bribe. Giving a glance around him he agreed and we got off with a much cheaper fiscal penalty and a free pass for the rest of the way, which a few of my comrades spent in drunken sleep.

Perhaps some of you will have objections to our train hopping and the unexpected bribe, but daring and roguish behavior often does by necessity demand flaunting the law (for instance if you don’t have the money). Now, I’m not saying if I was part of the following stories or if these happened to people I know, but they serve as nice examples of spontaneous mischief that can happen on a trip:

A group of friends walk into a grocery store to get some produce, but don’t have the money for it. Two of the friends and a girlfriend walk off to one end of the store while the rest “browse”. One friend accidentally bumps into the other friend’s girlfriend and they start a rather loud conflict, pretending not to know each other in the first place. The verbal confrontation attracts the attention of everyone in the store as the it gets heated and the two friends almost engage in a brawl but the store staff and security try to interfere, when suddenly the one friend grabs an eggplant and tosses it at the other one – what followed was a mad food fight with shouting and cursing as the guards and staff try to stop it, while the bunch who were “browsing” start stuffing their pockets with goods and run out, soon to be followed by the trio that staged the fight.

Say what you will, but this is a bonding experience that creates memories, a minor exploit to laugh about for people who only commit to such mischief when they are together, in a company of trusted friends, but individually see neither reason nor fun in doing stuff like this. And not all stories go that way and yet still manage to create a memorable experience:

A small group of friends walk at night and have fun banter when they pass a gas station and one of the guys bombastically announces to the rest that he will go in and rob the place. The others call his bluff and tell him to go ahead. He walks in, boldly, head up high, shameless of his intentions. Some time passes as his friends wait. He walks out with a small paper cup of instant coffee, and a somewhat awkward facial expression, equivalent of a shrug. Turns out that the moment he stood in front of the cashier he lost all his willingness and instead asked how much did their coffee cost before proceeding to play up how he doesn’t have enough and what a bummer it is. The cashier takes pity on him and offers him some of her own instant coffee, to which he reacts with a Shakespearean delivery of how she is a noble and kind soul that shared with him in his time of need, saying God will bless her for her generosity. The friends all crack up together at the failure of the endeavor and the marvelous juxtaposition of ill intent and repentance for that intent in how much he praised the cashier for sharing a tiny cup of instant coffee.

Things worked out for the best but they also came with a hilarious story that would not have come about if everyone walked on without even noticing the gas station. Now, this isn’t a call to actually go rob places, but rather displays of spontaneity which help create such situations and stories. Depending on the character of your whole group your stories will differ, as they should if they are to be authentic adventures that were exclusively your own. Nevertheless, adventures demand that daring first step that throws at least some caution to the wind, inasmuch as needs to be thrown in order to make that first step – after that, you become cautious not of engaging in something in the first place, but of how the situation can play itself out.

These initial trips to a pub or another city, with some mischief along the way, build up the spontaneity and courage to engage in more daring things. In my own experience, these trips led to my saying “Yes” to a sudden phone call from the same comrade who asked me “want to go exploring an abandoned mine with us?” This was the first time that there was need for preparation, but it was barely more than what we normally did – travel to a different town and from there hike to the mine, put on appropriate clothes and equipment and get in there (informing people we know about where we had gone to and at what time to expect us to call them that we’re out)!

This was the first dangerous adventure as the mine is old and the “roof” had been setting for years, what used to be carved out stone tunnels where a man could stand at full height in most areas became so small that you can barely fit standing on your knees while also bending your head down – in some spots even tighter than that. In some spots having enough space to bear crawl was a luxury as in others you need to literally crawl on your belly. The mines had several cave-ins that killed people, it is perfectly pitch black without a flashlight, shouting is absolutely out of the question and the nature of the bending and twisting tunnels meant that should somebody turn a corner and you are not following them closely behind you may very well lose sight of them and thus become separated. Which is what happened to me.

One of the guys wanted to splinter off and take a different route, going on his own but to ultimately meet up with the rest at another juncture. I figured that could be a bad idea and decided to go with him, which apparently he didn’t hear as he steamed ahead at some point and I lost sight of him.

I kept following the tunnel until I came to  a fork and thus was presented with a dilemma: I had to either wait for them to find me or make my way back out on my own and wait for them to come out as well. I did not like the first option as it relied on the main group to find the other guy and then them all finding me. Moreover, by then we were already running out of time before we had to call in that we are out. Thus I figured that I need to make my way out on my own, as even if they were to go looking for me they would be pressed for time to get out and call their own contacts to say that they were alright but possibly lost me in the mines.

I had a paper copy of the map for the mine and a digital one in my phone, and to everyone’s surprise I had actually made my way out of the mine successfully a full 5 minutes before the rest of the gang made their way out. At that point we began loudly exchanging our respective experiences and reactions to how I became separated from the group. To date this is one of our best stories from the adventures we partook in together.

There are always dangers in every adventure, as should be well realized by anyone who wants to actually take part in them. Consequences can be anything ranging from getting caught, arrested, getting lost and all the way to dying. That is the nature of adventure, it has to be a challenge.

The first step to adventure is the challenge of just accepting it. When an opportunity comes along you say “Yes“. It’s great to have a friend in the group who is there to make that offer and drag you out into the unknown “just because.” If you don’t have such a friend, then you must take on that role. Once you start and keep at it with small escapades they will progress by necessity to bigger things. And whatever dangers you’ll face will be a challenge at the time, and a great story in passing should you come out alive – maybe not unscathed, but alive.

By now it should have also become apparent that traveling is the ultimate source of adventures as all these stories involve leaving home, even if it is just to go to a pub with friends. Spontaneity is the lifeblood of adventure as it breaks the comfort of routine, traveling is likewise the lifeblood of adventures as it pulls you out of the comfort of home. I had the opportunity to travel quite a bit and been lost in the woods on a snowmobile, capsized a mini catamaran, got stuck on a mountain on skis after the slope was already closed, once almost drowned on New Year’s night in a military vehicle. Fun things happen if you just leave the comforts of home and routine.

And why aren't YOU out adventuring?
And why aren’t YOU out adventuring?

Adventure is literally just waiting for you, all you have to do is start building up to it with small escapades. Get a crew of friends and comrades who live in the same area as you and just start pushing them with random proposals for doing something, anything, just because, straight out of the blue. Perhaps you’ll meet new friends along the way, not necessarily fascists, nor does your initial crew need to be made up of fellow fascists, just friends – point is that such activities will naturally exclude those who are incapable of being Fascists, and your activities may be what helps them go down that path. All it takes to start, is that first step.

LEGACY OF ME NE FREGO

menefrego

Guido Keller (February 6th, 1892 – November 9th, 1929) was an Italian pilot, revolutionary, adventurer, close friend and comrade of D’Annunzio and one of the early influences of Fascist aesthetics, and even a precursor to the psychedelics revolution of the 60s.

He was born in Milan to an ancient aristocratic Swiss family named Keller von Kellerer, which moved in the middle of the 18th century to Lombardia, Italy. After having finished primary school, his parents sent him to a Swiss boarding school, where he attended for two years before getting expelled for undisciplined behavior.

Sports enthusiast and pilot, he took a tea set with him on his plane and never wore his flight jacket – substituting it for a fancy suit with a long scarf that had a bow-tie on the end, plus a fez hat instead of a pilot’s helmet. In flight he’d sometimes steer the plane with a rope while reading a book. He was shot down several times and was heavily wounded in his leg, after one emergency landing he was taken prisoner and released by Italian forces after the Battle of Vittorio Veneto.

Keller organized the hijacking of the trucks that took 300 volunteers to Fiume for D’Annunzio’s adventure, a gift that Keller gave to D’Annunzio along with a huge bouquet of red roses.

In the established Regency of Carnaro, Keller was made the acting secretary and capo. In practice, this meant that he was in charge of getting weapons, supplies and materials – by any means necessary.

When Fiume ran short on supplies, Keller would personally fly on his plane to various villages, where he would outright steal anything he could get his hands on. These “corsair” activities were viewed favorably by D’Annunzio. One time, Keller even stole a big live pig that he put on board of his plane, however it was so fat that it broke through the fuselage. So, when Keller was landing, the pig became an impromptu part of the landing gear.

In Fiume, Keller, together with writer and yogi Giovanni Comisso, start the “Yoga – Union of Free Spirits Longing for Perfection” movement, with the swastika as its symbol, along with a 5 leaf rose. The movement had an esoteric foundation and saw as its goal to protect D’Annunzio from the moderate conservative elements that attempted to influence him, along with declaring ideals of free love and that thieves and prostitutes are preferable to them than boring and lawful bourgeois.

The movement attempted to theoretically explain the necessity of a “science of Love as a means for Transfiguration,” declaring that the true meaning of the word “philosophy” wasn’t “love of wisdom“, but “wisdom of love“. The movement described the Fiume adventure as a moment of spontaneity and non-seriousness in a businesslike and serious world, an ongoing holiday in a world that forgot how to celebrate, a world enslaved by dumb, pointless labor.

Yoga” regarded itself in opposition to spiritual movements founded on the unquestioning authority of a single man. According to them, even if that man were the greatest genius, by his nature, he’d be limited and intolerant, incapable of accepting differing views of things, whereas Keller declared that it was the dialectic capacity to embrace opposing positions that was the sure sign of the fullness of life. In contrast, the dictate of a single person created a devastating monotony, which was negation of life itself.

Keller also founded “The Desperates” (Disperati), a division of bodyguards for D’Annunzio, made up of a gang of guys who were rejected by the Fiume Command from participating in the service, due to their uncontrollable nature. Most of their time The Desperates spent swimming, exercising, singing and marching around town dressed in only shorts. They would gather in the evenings in some deserted area where they’d fool around, dividing up into two teams and having shoot outs with real weapons, live rounds and functional grenades, as such they had their fair share of injuries. Thereafter they’d walk around town singing, wearing flower necklaces.

Giovanni Comisso described them as “A small squad of eager, cynical, cruel young lads, wonderful in their daring: the color of rebellion and freedom, people who made it through the sieve of war, revolutionaries if not in their ideas, then in spirit. These guys were known as “soldiers of death”. No dirt stuck to them – these lads cursed by mediocrity and wise men of the world – who had shown the world the color of man in the epoch of the spirit’s twilight“.

Their slogan was “me ne frego”, which later was adopted by the Italian Fascists, with the first true Fascist “Disperata” appearing in Florence in June of 1921.

Disperata

Following D’Annunzio’s love for the theatrical, his comrades turned politics into an aesthetic expression. D’Annunzio wrote during the Fiume Adventure: “Arditi camp in the evening. Real fire. A speech, inspired faces – a race, born in fire. Chorus singing… Marching. Daggers glistening, held tightly in fists. Grandeur that is entirely Roman in spirit. The daggers point upwards. Slogans. Spirited pace of cohorts. Meat being fried over an open fire. The erupting flame burns the face – fever of courage. Rome is the goal.

His legionaries devised symbolic rituals which would later on be adopted by fascists. Legionary-insurgents adopted the Moroccan Fez as their head dress. Black shirts and skulls became the symbols of power over life and death. Their banners depicted the roman eagle with open wings. Geometrically strict marches symbolized through the anonymity of their participants a rejection of the bourgeois. Utilization of theatrical techniques into political activity helped cultivate a particular connection between the the Comandante of Fiume and the masses, utilizing the power of symbols and myths.

By the end of the Fiume Adventure Keller became friends with Marinetti and in time becomes a supporter of Futurism.

Leaving the air force, Keller for a time finds himself in Turkey, where he unsuccessfully attempted to start a piloting school.

In 1923, he returned to the air force and worked in the Italian embassy in Berlin, becoming widely known in certain circles thanks to his nonconformism.

In 1925 he is sent as a military pilot to Libya, after requesting transfer to active duty.

Upon his return to Italy he is sent on a commerce mission to Latin America. He spent the winter in Venezuela, taking an expedition down the Orinoco river, crossing the Guyana and reaching the Caribbean sea. Returning to Italy once again, he develops projects for commercial ties which would be realized using hydroplanes. These would be able to land on rivers near Brazilian, Colombian and Venezuelan shores.

In 1928, he crashes his hydroplane, losing his comrade but surviving with no serious injuries.

On November 9th, 1929, Keller dies in a car crash with his two pilot friends. On D’Annunzio’s request, Keller was buried in the Vittoreale estate at lake Garda in Lombardy, where D’Annunzio himself would also be eventually buried.

PROPAGANDA: A PUSH OVER THE LINE

linepush

This article is essentially a reply to everyone who simply don’t get the point of propaganda, or at least don’t understand its point when hardline Fascists/NS use propaganda. It can likewise be viewed as a companion piece to Zeiger’s talk “This is the Plan“. The majority, being lemmings deep down, regardless of what they try to market themselves as, who eat up what they’ve been taught at libshit colleges, constantly assume that propaganda is some magic bullet to sway opinions and convert people, the key to “shifting the overton window” which likewise led to the delusional inflation of the importance of memes.

We’ll be foremost discussing the relationship between propaganda and lemmings, so we will forego discussing the use of internal propaganda, that is to say propaganda created for the consumption of your allies and movement/struggle comrades. For those who need a reminder as to what lemmings are, here is Dr. William Pierce’s explanation:

This lack of understanding on the subject of propaganda is indeed a product of liberal thinking. Libshit education centers constantly talk bout the evils of propaganda as something that brainwashes people into a certain way of thinking. Thus, it is dangerous.  This is a point that lends itself to justification of censorship and no-platforming policies of real Fascists and NS, or anyone branded as such, even if they are a jewish faggot.

The majority of lemmings believe this shit and buy into it 100%, however the reactions always differ – some believe this fairy tale and then do everything to avoid wrongthink materials out of fear, all the way up to making retarded arguments like “I don’t need to read Mein Kampf, I already know everything I need about Nazism from the HOLOCAUST!Others buy into this myth and think that they can use this “magic wand” to forward their agenda. And as is always the case, when one doesn’t understand the purpose of the tool they can never wield it efficiently.

The notion that propaganda is a means of swaying people’s mindset doesn’t account for how propaganda has different uses in different circumstances. When you are a dominant force in society the lemmings follow your will because you represent the status quo, their modus operandi is to go along to get along, so they conform to the status quo put forward by the dominant force. Propaganda, in this case, is a way of solidifying and perpetuating the status quo, which already exists  regardless of propaganda, making it simply the icing on the cake, unless the purpose of the dominant force isn’t to simply maintain its own power.

If the goal of the dominant force is to completely and fundamentally change the outlook of people in society, then the importance of propaganda changes and becomes something more. Propaganda becomes more widespread, more persuasive, it becomes a part of daily life, because the message has to be hammered in day in and day out until you raise a generation of people who are capable of instilling this new type of thinking in their own children, becoming the perpetuators of the new outlook and societal norms. This use of propaganda is intrinsically tied with a Totalitarian phase that is required in altering a society to the core, hence the association of totalitarianism with mass use of propaganda, be it Fascist, National-Socialist or Soviet, hence the liberals drawing parallels between the use of propaganda in these societies. However, once this new generation becomes capable of self-perpetuating these ideals and norms the need for propaganda decreases, just as the totalitarian phase itself.

To sum up, the point in the use of propaganda by an established dominant force in society is to either perpetuate itself (in which case importance of propaganda is low) or change society at the core (importance is high) and then perpetuate that new society (importance is once again low). This is where the misconception on the use of propaganda comes from, as people take the use of propaganda by a dominant force in society as the only way propaganda works – to change one’s outlook, forgetting completely that it only works this way because the force that utilizes propaganda is already dominant and thus the lemmings of society conform to it regardless – they want to go along to get along, so they will take in propaganda messages readily and willingly. It is in this instance, when the masses are pliable and can be molded into something better than their base behavior, or worse, in the case of jewish propaganda in today’s world.

However, fools mistake this particular use of propaganda under certain circumstances as the universal use of propaganda, including as a means of becoming that dominant force. In reality, the dynamics, point and efficiency of propaganda changes when it’s used as a means of achieving dominance. At the very least, it changes when it comes to our struggle, because it is more than just some political shift between already existing and widely accepted social narratives – in contrast to the situation with existing democratic elections.

Modern “democratic states” use propaganda in this fashion of “swaying people” efficiently only because they deal in widely accepted social narratives, the only ones that lemmings are allowed to choose from, like the Republicans vs Democrats in the United States. To us these choices are mute, they are pointless, they are part of the same whole – they cannot bring about effective, qualitative change that we desire, while the ruling System is purposely keeping options that can issue such change out of the equation. All choices it offers are false, all choices given are the status quo with irrelevant meager differences, the kind of differences that lemmings are allowed to “make up their minds about“, under the constant onslaught of propaganda that tries to pull people to either side. Propaganda is here used to maintain the status quo. It does nothing to initiate qualitative change. Lemmings are deluded into thinking they have a choice and are active participants in the political process. Republicans or Democrats – you’re still ruled over by the System, Coke or Pepsi – you’re still drinking soda. All election campaigns and soda advertisements are exactly the same.

Yet some morons think they can use this same method to sway people to thoughts and concepts that exist outside of the status quo, and expect people to be just as easily swayed as between voting for Republicans or Democrats. People accept the false choice because it is still a form of conformity as each choice is backed by a large percentage of the populace and is sanctioned by the System. If you promote ideas that counter the System – you are an outsider and a minority, a fringe force to be excluded from the equation and kept away as far as possible, you are the threat to the status quo and thus a threat to the lemming principle of go along to get along.

Lemmings will never follow you no matter what propaganda you use on them, be it logical with data backing it up or emotional and empathetic – the lemming may agree for the duration of your conversation with them, but the next day they will revert to a conformist position, because they are pressured by everything in their surroundings to do so, including other lemmings, least they be expelled from the System. Such a fate would be as frightful as a death sentence to a mere lemming.

From this we can conclude that propaganda cannot be used as a means of swaying the masses in order to become a dominant force in society. The leverage over the masses is firmly in the hands of the System and cannot be undercut by anything other than the System’s demise. This is obviously a painful conclusion for idiots with high hopes for the mass movement, however that is the the one thing that undermines their entire plan: in order to have mass control over the people you must be the dominant force, but they want to have mass control over people in order to become a dominant force – they can keep trying that till the cows come home or till they bash their skulls open against the pavement in desperation from begging lemmings to join their side.

So how DOES something become a dominant force in society? Those who believe that entryism and mass movement approaches may work are delusional, whereas those who may seem to be successful are only as successful as the System allows them to be, in other words only in so far as what these idiots try to offer society is still part of the System’s plans. It’s all part of the plan, goyim. Notable exception from this would be, once again, Golden Dawn in Greece but as we’ve explained on NOOSE before, their presence in the System’s workshop is foremost to destabilize it and mock it from within – their true power exists entirely outside the official political channels and in part is owed to just how incompetent and self-destructive the System’s lackeys are in Greece, bowing to their masters and their demands elsewhere.

When talking about real, qualitative change, the kind that only hardline Fascists/NS offer, propaganda plays a different role, one that actually stems from understanding of how this tool is utilized. We know we can’t sway the mass opinion in our favor and we know that lemmings are ultimately useless in this struggle until push comes to shove (Race War). In such circumstances, they are simply forced by necessity and desire for self-preservation to hide behind our backs, whereupon we can enforce our will upon them, becoming the only authority they recognize (which is when the lemming principle will finally act in our favor). Thus we don’t even bother with lemmings as such. What we want are other fanatics like ourselves, those who can break from the System’s hold and become truly proactive in the struggle. All these people truly need is that last push.

That is the real point of propaganda if one seeks to become a dominant force in society and exact real, qualitative change. It’s purpose is not to sway people to a different way of thinking, it’s real goal is to give people who already share our outlook that last push they need to finally cross the line and join our ranks. Many people feel something is wrong and can’t quite put their finger on it, and these are the only people on whom propaganda actually works, those who are already seeking answers and solutions, rather than those who are comfortably set in their ways as conformist lemmings. Propaganda isn’t a magic wand, it can’t just immediately turn someone’s outlook upside down, it is simply a call out to people who are already on their way to accepting this view anyway. It gives them the final push over the line, from conformity to the System to the outcast fanatics who can sink the System.

Once these fanatics commit to direct action against the System, by virtue of their success they will be placed in the public spotlight and made aware of to everyone in society, and the more their victories grow from direct action, the more these fanatics become a legitimate force in the eyes of the masses – not by virtue of propaganda calls, but by seeing with their own eyes that these dedicated activists mean business and can deliver. That is the foremost reason to the rise of Golden Dawn, who could deliver help where the government institutions could not, and for the frivolities that had been afforded to Ukrainian nationalists, who took it upon themselves to crash Lenin statues, destroy Russian Federation bank offices and hunt down drug dealers to be publicly humiliated. The fact that these groups could do so with impunity made them a more legitimate force in the eyes of the masses, when compared to the state and their competitors (commies, liberals, what have you).

While morons try to get mass attention to themselves via propaganda to create a mass movement, we use propaganda as a wide net – we try to maximize its spread not in order to get everyone who hears it on our side, but so as to call out to those few, who are already receptive to our message and just need that last incentive to take the plunge. It is a beacon with which we attract those with potential, and thereafter we vet them for those who are real hopefuls, weeding out losers, fakers and larpers.

We cast a wide net, we call out to the few and then distill those numbers even further, until we get only people who can change the world. The fanatics, the uncompromising believers in our cause, in our struggle. We use propaganda to attract quality, not quantity, because an active, dedicated minority has always been the real source of any revolution and societal change, for better or worse. Meanwhile those who misunderstand propaganda think that it will change the way people think to the core and give them a mass movement with which they could then force the System to negotiate terms and only then consider a confrontation against it. Wishful thinking of the worst kind, one that will leave its practitioners holding the bag alone, with not one lemming ready to stand by their side when push comes to shove for their failed movement.

Only thing left to say on the matter is how mass movement morons are in fact undermining our efforts, or rather, delaying them. By offering hopeful activists a fake way out with less effort they give them false hope as to a non-radical solution, allowing them to set again in the comfortable lemming existence. This was touched upon by our regular contributor Max Macro in his article “Trump Cucks“.

This gives people false hope in methods for change that require less effort but are doomed to fail. This is because they are based on a misunderstanding of the mechanics utilized and engaged in. This diverts the few hopefuls from taking that final step over the line, delaying their progress needlessly, if for no other reason than to indulge oneself in rationalizing “I’ll give this a try and if that doesn’t work out I’m going all in“. These people will join us regardless, once they realize that the hope they were promised was a delusion of morons whom they believed, or if they grow discontent with just how little mass movement people actually do and how they accomplish even less. At best this acts as another step to a vetting process for finding the best of the best who’d become active, radical fanatics in the struggle. At worst this is a delay that needlessly prevents these people from going all in.

Mass Movement morons using propaganda – you’re doing it wrong.

For Fascists/NS propaganda is a push over the line of System conformity to an all out confrontation.

SKYDAS EXCLUSIVE EXPOSE

Cover by SKYDAS
Cover by SKYDAS

Up until 2008 there wasn’t a real nationalist scene in Lithuania apart from some small groups, however in 2008 the country experienced a “Big Bang” of radical nationalism. The build up of fascists, skinheads and nationalists erupted and marched through the streets (which later resulted in a lot of targeting by the police). Until 2013 nationalism was on the rise with LTJS (Lithuanian nationalist youth union) at the forefront. After that everything seemed to go downhill, Lithuania turned out to be a small country with high surveillance, vicious liberal media and Israeli funded ‘nazi watch‘. There were of course groups like Blood and Honor Lithuania, which, apparently, did not last long. At present the LTJS is a legal front for nationalism, but according to our comrades it is falling apart, crumbling from the inside, so to speak, due to poor leadership and administration. As it is trying to stay in the shade of legality, it can’t show its true nature and ambitions. Enter SKYDAS.

Apart from SKYDAS and LTJS there are no other nationalist movements. The need for an all out fascist movement was distinctly felt in many hearts of nationalists, which led to two groups of people separately planning to create a new movement. It just so happened that one member of one group befriended the people from the other group and from that day on the two bands came together as the founding members of what we now know as Skydas. During their first ventures there was no decided name or symbolism, but a common revolutionary fire was blazing in their hearts. National Action played a big role in inspiring Skydas, as well as Generation Identitaire, Nordic Resistance and Casapound. The very idea of Skydas is a manifestation of Gabrielle D‘Annunzio‘s and Yukio Mishima‘s legacy – their ideals, symbolism, artwork can be seen in our works. We took our name after the late author’s Yukio Mishima’s militia Tatenokai (Shield Society). Speaking of inspiration, Skydas passionately acknowledge that throughout history fascism was, is and must be always tied to art, which is also a big part of their activity. The founding members are some anonymous kids, students and graduates stuck in dead end office jobs.

Below is our exclusive interview with SKYDAS. We urge everyone to check out their youtube channel for some epic nazi retrowave stylings.

Did you start out creating Skydas already knowing what you want this group to be or did it experience some changes as it developed?
Hangman

We knew what our goals were and how we wanted to look like from the very beginning. Keeping the current political and social status quo in Lithuania and Europe as a whole would harm the very idea of Skydas, which is why we wanted to present people with something they have never seen before. That is why we strive to be like a living organism, always growing, not too fanatical or dogmatic. Most changes occur as we study political doctrines, philosophy and history in our circle.
Skydas

What are the founding principles of Skydas and what is your overall plan of action in Lithuania?
Hangman

The main goal is to establish a visible counter-culture for the youth. Freeing ourselves from all contemporary sub-cultures and uniting all youth under one idea. The idea of Fascism. For some time to come this means simply informing the youth that alternatives to the current social and political reality exist, providing alternative information sources, a space for people to discuss ideas that are officially taboo. We hope that in doing so we will help to bring up a generation that is much less likely to fall for liberal and leftist brainwashing. For now – the honest support us, the heroic join us.
Skydas

What kind of activism do you do?
Hangman

Our activism is mostly info warfare. Teaching kids the basics of politics and philosophy. We hold discussions, write articles, make informative videos. Currently stickering is getting us a lot of attention too. We did have some demonstrations with provocative banners, but since we hope to keep Skydas a semi-secret organisation, demos will not be a very important in our course of action. It‘s always a good idea to demonstrate what kind of activities we do, that is why we take videomaking and quality of our content very seriously. Another very important part of activism is creating humour. Internet memes are not for killing time, they are a new form of informative medium that we hope to use to its full extent.
Skydas

You’ve taken up a very particular style, could you tell us about its role?
Hangman

At the current state of affairs, our style is the backbone of what we are. Someone on the internet called us post-ironic meta-neo-fascists, and that sounds pretty great and goes according to our plan, to be exact – to provoke and create confusion to attract people that never had anything to do with subcultures like skinheads or metalheads, people that used to think nationalism/fascism/national-socialism is an excuse for degenerate people to gather and do degenerate things. We believe that it is a duty of every nationalist around the world to do what they can to change the image of nationalism. Now instead of associating nationalism with alcohol and beating people up the youth are bound to associate it with internet memes and aesthetic imagery.

Does Skydas appear to be something novel on the Lithuanian nationalist scene? What was the reaction of the public so far to your appearance? What about the other nationalist groups and the police/government?
Hangman

Yes. We came in like a storm to the Lithuanian nationalist scene. The nationalist and right wing groups were shocked. Getting such a reaction only proved that we are on the right path. At the moment the public barely knows about our existence, because we didn‘t receive substantial media coverage and for the time being this might be an issue. On the other hand we are always monitored by commie bastards, vatniks as they are known in this part of Europe. They already accused us of being a CIA financed lithuanian version of Maidan, counter-intelligence honeypot and so on. Speaking about other nationalist groups – we are doing everything to avoid conflicts and do not wish to be seen as competition.
Skydas

How big is Skydas at the moment? Do you have multiple chapters across Lithuania or are you localized?
Hangman

We have people all across Lithuania and with every video released we get new recruits asking to join our ranks. Membership is a few dozen at the moment.
Skydas

Benjamin Raymond of National Action has actually met up with your group, how did that go?
Hangman

Benjamin Raymond was the one who inspired us to create SKYDAS in the first place. Some founding members already know him for over two years, having met him on imageboard circles. The meeting here in Lithuania went great, with support from National Action we knew that we will do our part in contributing to the Fascist Spring that is going to start blooming across Lithuania and Europe very soon.
Skydas

What is the relationship between NA and Skydas?
Hangman

Relations between NA and Skydas are mutually inspirational, we are giving each other ideas for activism and visual imagery. We are constantly receiving tips for strategies of development, as NA is older and has much more experience. We try to keep close contact with our brothers in arms.
Skydas

What kind of news can we expect Skydas to become associated with once you break the media barrier?
Hangman

I think that once we break the media barrier, we will become the main boogeyman. But given some time, we just might succeed in changing the perspective of how the young people see Fascism and it will be a major victory for us all. Of course that would mean facing our enemies in a full-scale media war, but that is why we are starting small, to be prepared for fights to come.
Skydas

Many people find it hard to actually start up an actual group and get going. Is there anything you’d like to say to our readers and fascists worldwide that could prove useful?
Hangman

Revolution begins inside an individual‘s mind. Starting activism all alone requires courage, but our generation has an unique ability to organize online. We advise the readers to do just that. From imageboards to online games, one might find restless kids wishing to do something about the awful social reality anywhere. A Facebook meme page or a Youtube parody channel might prove to be the foundation of a successful organisation. One only has to learn to trust people, forgive their mistakes and act as a team. And never lose hope! “Der Sieg Wird Unser Sein!” (Victory will be ours!)
