THE STRUGGLE IN A TRUMPIAN WORLD

If you want to keep your principles constant, your course of action will necessarily change as the circumstances evolve.

And the circumstances are definitely “evolving.”

It would be wise, at this stage, to ask ourselves what has changed for us since the Trump election, if it affects us in any way, and ponder on how we might tweak our tactics to adapt to this new reality.

While these changes would be particularly noticeable and effective in north America, they may have repercussions everywhere in the West eventually. But as of now, the tactical discussions will be more oriented towards the situation of Yanks and Leafs.

I’ll begin by discussing what has changed. I’m not passing judgement here on whether any of this is “good” or “bad” for us, simply noting how the situation is evolving. It’s up to us to turn these events into either problems or opportunities.

Changes in the media

The mainstream media and its relationship to us, the state and the public might be the thing that changed the most in the past year.

For one, tv-watching and newspaper reading has gone down steadily, and all studies show that public trust in the media is in free fall. In their enthusiasm to promote Hillary and sink Trump (and then get him impeached), the media’s been caught lying again and again, further lowering their credibility.

This has led to a bizarre new effect, in which people the media attack become more popular in polls while people the media praise lose public approval. The latest example of this is Jared Kushner, who has the lowest popularity score in Trump’s family, yet is the only one the media has praised consistently.

The second effect of this is that the media is on financial life support, relying mainly on sensationalism in order to boost their ratings. This means, for the most part, attacking Trump and his supporters through various scandals.

However, Trump’s constant attacks on the media have left them in a state of acute paranoia and fear, leading to frequent grave errors in judgement, especially in the form of over-reaching. The latest example of that was their public threatening of the guy who made that CNN wrestling GIF.

Parallel to all of this, and partly because of it, we’ve seen an explosion in the viewership and importance of alternative media sources, as well as a significant right-ward shift by popular internet figures (PewDiePie, Jon Tron and various twitter personalities come to mind).

All this, I believe, has changed the media’s relationship to outright Fascist and National Socialist groups. We used to be a Boogeyman helpful in demonizing the people the media didn’t like, or for reminding people that anyone who doesn’t like Blacks or Homos are literal Nazis. Because the entire political establishment was basically fully liberal, they latched on to any manifestation of Nazi-ism as proof that a continued “revolution” against straight White males was still necessary.

But now, the media firmly and sincerely believes that the Nazis are in power. Of course, liberals have no idea what Fascism actually is, so they can’t distinguish real Nazis from Trump and his supporters. But that doesn’t matter. In the eyes of the shitlibs writing local and national news reports, there is no meaningful difference between a guy in a MAGA hat who wants to kick out Moslems and Beaners, and a guy in a swastika shirt who wants a new Reich.

So while they tried early on to hurt Trump by associating him with Nazis and White supremacists, this was just a ploy. Now, however, they really believe it. This changes things. They won’t promote small right-wing groups in order to attack Trump, as they no longer believe that could serve any purpose.

Changes in the State

I’m not going to discuss the Trump administration’s social policies or whatever, as those don’t really matter to our strategy or our long term goals.

It’s the unspoken things that are more interesting to us.

The first thing is that Soros and subversive NGO’s seem to have stopped funding negro chimp-outs, while the media seem to have stopped agitating for them. This would seem to indicate that our enemies firmly believe the state would now crack down on these riots, unlike all previous governments.

Because, obviously, when minorities riot against the majority and the government simply lets them burn everything with no consequences, this is deeply demoralizing to the people, and encourages individualism. If, on the other hand, the government cracks down on minorities who misbehave, this instead emboldens the majority.

Of course, we don’t know for sure that the Trump government could or would bring in the military if a category 8 chimpout were to occur, Ferguson-Style. But our enemies seem to fear that.

Another change in the state is that there appears to be an effort to redirect resources previously used to investigate and monitor “hate groups” (Nazis, Fascists, White nationalists, etc) and use those to fight Islam or whatever else. In other words, our types of organizations will probably be under less scrutiny (and be less targeted for infiltration) in the next few years. That, of course, doesn’t mean that there will be no efforts at all by the Feds to mess with us.

Additionally, information has recently come out indicating that there were definite plans to abolish free speech in America and clamp down on internet freedom in the case of a Hillary win. Those plans have been put on hold for now.

Changes in the lemming masses

The masses are more polarized than at any other time in recent history. On one side is the group who sincerely believes that Trump is literally Hitler (and that it’s somehow a bad thing). These people are enthusiastic about every form of POZ imaginable. On the other, you have Trump’s vaguely nationalistic (in the civic sense) supporters. They’re nostalgic for a less degenerate past (the 60’s/80’s or whatever) and pretty much hate Moslems and Mexicans.

None of these people are sympathetic to Fascism at this point.

However, while the Trump supporters don’t love Hitler, they’re so used to being called Nazis by this point by their opponents throughout the campaign that they no longer take it very seriously. In other words, the shock-value of “Nazism” and “Fascism” has gone down considerably in the past year, due to how much the terms have been thrown around as attacks at such a large part of the population. Outside of ultra-liberal centers like New York or Los Angeles, it’s much less likely that a random person being accused of being a “fascist” will lose his job or suffer serious consequences.

But probably the biggest and most important change in the masses of people is the radicalization of the very young “generation z.” The media is currently framing this as the youth being “more conservative” but in fact, they’re imbibing the new counter-culture, which is racist, hates Fags and trannies, and makes fun of whinorities in general.

Poor little Shaneequa.

These young people aren’t watching TV or reading news papers, obviously. They’re consuming massive amounts of online content, however, and this translates into a very different attitude towards the world.

Don’t forget that lemmings adapt their behaviors, attitudes and opinions based on social expectations. In the past, this meant  the opinions of the immediate community. Then, the Jewish media formed an artificial community at the national scale. But these young lemmings (pretty much everyone is a lemming before reaching maturity) are getting their “social pressure” from the internet instead of getting straight from the Jews.

And the internet is teaching them that the mainstream media is deceptive and evil, SJW’s are stupid and annoying, and liberalism is boring and square.

Meanwhile, the antifa – who are the militant branch of the liberal lemmings – are shifting their attention away from groups like ours and towards normie Trump supporters instead, favoring softer targets to the “tough meat” that they’ve been experiencing defeat after defeat fighting against in the past few years.

They’re still getting their asses kicked by regular republicans though.

This means that the antifa’s resources will be stretched even thinner than before, keeping track of both the large numbers of regular rallies by republicans and Fascist activism.

Our Tactics

Those, I believe, are some of the most important things that have changed in the past few months, and that could potentially influence our tactics from now on.

Let’s now examine what problems and opportunities this new situation affords us.

Outreach

There’s currently a significant reliance on the mass media when it comes to publicizing our groups to the masses. By doing various type of pranks or demonstrations, we try to get the easily offended liberals to make a scene and thus generate television news coverage. This has worked consistently in the past.

However, the various factors discussed previously mean that the media is far less likely to cover anything we do, both because they’re more focused on Trump and his supporters, and they now have to worry that attacking us will actually make us likable in the eyes of the large proportion of Americans who distrust the media.

Moreover, the banalization of Nazism means that there’s less shock value (and thus lower ratings) in covering mere swastika posters or talking against immigration and whatnot.

Those who use the swastika and nazi imagery mainly for the purpose of shocking may need to start using other symbols as well. In America, I think the KKK might actually have maintained a greater power to trigger liberals, though it’s a bit goofy. If the aesthetic could be modernized and made more “hip,” the tactic of postering universities might be used for a bit more time.

But generally, going for bigger pranks may be necessary. The only nationalist stunt that was given significant, sustained media attention in the past few months was the identitarian’s ploy to rent ships to go intercept refugee boats and turn them around. Regardless of what you may think of these groups, as a PR stunt it worked very well, by playing into the shitlib journalist’s fears about Nazi pirates going around sinking boats full of their precious niggers.

Similar things could be done in the USA at the Mexican border, for example. You could launch a crowdfunding campaign to set up motion sensors (or mines, lol) at the border to catch invading Beaners. Or, you could do videos where you spot illegals working in restaurants or getting health care or whatever and call ICE on them, cutting the footage up into slick propaganda videos to trigger liberals. Basically, use the current climate of fear and paranoia about deportations to generate buzz.

A last strategy to garner media coverage would be to use their obsession with Trump and their paranoia to trick them into giving you a platform. For example, feeding them false information damaging to Trump and then using the ensuing shitfest to promote yourselves. Or attacking the media directly in your propaganda in order to play on their new fear of being “victimized” (for example, with posters showing journalists being hung during the day of the rope).

Use their delusions against them.

However, because of the clear trend towards the media losing its reach and credibility, especially with the younger generation, it might be wiser in the long term to forget about getting media coverage at all and focus on social media buzz.

Because of the mainstream media’s decline, they are now forced to cover social media trends anyway, as a last-ditch attempt to stay relevant. So getting one gets the other.

In order for something to trend on social media, an element of humor, irony or absurdity is helpful, as well as relations to famous people. So it’s necessary to go beyond just doing something shocking, but instead go got stuff that is more likely to get facebook shares. In this sense, postering a celebrity’s house is more likely to get a viral response than doing the same thing with a university. Or doing a video where you publicly shame a race-mixing celebrity and posting that online with your group’s logo.

As an aside, our research indicates that attacking race-mixing has a better viral effect than just attacking minorities. Do with that as you will. Shaming specific women also has a good potential to get those social shares going.

But in any case, studying viral marketing and implementing those principles in the publicity stunts will definitely be a winning strategy from now on.

Recruitment

Until now, the main focus for recruitment has been young men in their 20’s. Those are the men who have the energy to fight for something, while not yet being too invested in the system to be afraid of the consequences.

That is still the case.

However, the unforeseen radicalization of the younger generation Z presents us with new opportunities. He who possesses the youth, gains the future. Some groups may find that reaching out to young teenagers and teaching them, while acting as role models as they grow up, could be extremely effective in the long run.

Fascist groups today are essentially in the same position as older beatniks were in the 60’s; we can lead the youth in a rebellious cultural upheaval against the previous generations of stuck up, boring adults. If we can help mold a social movement like the hippies did, that should give us a huge source of radicalized and militant recruits to bolster our ranks in the next five years.

The hippies had their love bus…

… but we’ll have our hate bus.

In the more immediate term, it’s possible to use the Trump/alt-right phenomenon to gather and recruit comrades. If you organize “alt-right” and “pro-Trump” parties and social events (for young people), you can expect that 5-15% of those who attend will either already identify as National Socialists and be in general alignment with our ideas, or will be amenable to be radicalized. Whether you’re willing to do so or not is a different matter.

Keeping regular social events not officially related to your group will allow you to see a lot of new faces and with some sorting you may get some recruits over time out of these meetings/parties.

Otherwise, if you follow the viral outreach strategy outlined above and keep a public blog or faceook page where people can contact you, that should give you some candidates pre-selected for radicalism.

Advanced “Pranks”

The more devious pranks, as discussed in Colin Jordan’s Uprising, could probably trigger large chimpouts much more easily in the current climate than ever before, as minorities are feeling stressed and paranoid about the “evil Nazis” in power.

However, as discussed, we note that most organized efforts to agitate minorities have stopped, for fear of giving more power to Trump’s administration.

There is no doubt that if you do Soros’ work for him and get Blacks really angry about whatever, there’s a very real possibility that the Trump administration could come down hard on them and strengthen his position. Whether you see this as a positive or a negative is a question of tactics.

The System is currently divided into two camps. Activities aimed at destabilizing it will almost certainly help one of those two camps. If the “establishment” camp succeeds in ousting the Trump administration, the political climate will change and all the tactics discussed here will have to be revised. For example, restrictions would probably be set on the internet, making viral promotion much more difficult. But other opportunities might arise from that too.

Resource gathering

If you’ve heard my podcast “this is the plan,” you’ll know that I advocate a two-pronged approach to the struggle. On one hand, we have the “destructive” activism which involves destabilizing the System’s institutions of power and weakening the positions of our enemies, while on the other you have the “constructive” activism which builds up our own power base.

This cultivation of our own power involves accumulating resources, in the form of land, money, businesses, non-profit organizations, and so on.

This is where the reduction in surveillance and infiltration by the System could prove to be a boon if it pans out. The reason for that is that building our own institutions is greatly facilitated when we can make use of the System’s resources. But if the people involved are already identified as enemies of ZOG and tracked closely, the system may interfere with their attempts.

For example, if you want to create a church as a cover for gathering donations, acquiring land and doing charitable works, you’ll need system approval to get all the tax benefits. If they know you’re Nazis they could easily decline your application for tax-exemption on some technicality. This is why the power-building aspect of the struggle could greatly benefit from the increased secrecy that comes from being taken off the “terror watchlists” or whatever.

This aspect is sorely lacking in North America, if we compare our movements with what you see in Europe. Golden Dawn, Casa Pound and the NRM are much better organized in terms of creating their own parallel social institutions, even in their much more difficult situation. Hopefully we can grasp this window of opportunity (which could easily close right back within a few years) to make up the slack and acquire as many resources as possible.

And so…

The current climate, created by the bizarre election campaign and now Trump’s presidency, creates both challenges and opportunities for nationalists.

It’s up to us to adapt to the new reality and grab as much “territory” as we can under the new rules of the game, which are liable to change at any moment.

Even if Trump were the new incarnation of Hitler himself, there’s very little he could do, surrounded as he is with the swamp of Kikes and shills which have festered at the heart of America for decades. As such, his presidency doesn’t change our goals and the task at hand.

It’s our duty to make our movement grow as large and as strong as possible, as quickly as possible, getting new members, additional resources, better public outreach, and expanded tactical options.

We don’t know what tomorrow brings. So we have to be ready for anything.

FASCIST FOOD: PERMACULTURE

permaculture

We’ve devoted the previous articles of this series mainly to construction techniques, along with a few methods to address some of our essential needs. But one of a man’s most pressing need is Food. Food is already created in incredible abundance by the industries of the System, and as such isn’t something we tend to think about too much.

Even a Nazi's gotta eat, man. And when he eats, he doesn't eat Jew food!
Even a Nazi’s gotta eat, man. And when he eats, he doesn’t eat Jew food!

But if our goal is to be independent from the system, and eventually replace it, then we shouldn’t discount talks of alternative ways to make food.

The current agricultural methods are unsustainable. Artificial fertilizers increase production, but turns the soil into lifeless dirt. And as oil becomes less abundant and prices increase, the price of food, which is dependent on it, will skyrocket as well.

Permaculture is a relatively new paradigm in food production, which does not rely on artificial fertilizer or even on machinery, yet is potentially more productive than conventional modern agriculture.

Working with nature, instead of against it
Conventional traditional agriculture methods are not born from an observation of nature, but rather of trying to force nature to bend to our whims in order to make our lives more convenient. The result, over time, is the destruction of the soil and the multiplication of our problems. Our crops are besieged by pests and disease, requiring increasingly complex pest control methods. The land becomes less and less fertile over time, requiring massive inputs of artificial fertilizers.

crop-spray-plane
No, goy, it’s entirely normal you have to spray complex chemicals on your crops from the skies in order to feed yourself.

Biologists and naturalists have been studying plants and animals scientifically for hundreds of years. But for the most part, the insights into plant and animal ecology haven’t been put in practice by farmers and agricultural industries. Permaculture was born from trying to apply our modern, scientific understanding of ecology to efficient food production.

The reality is that a forest is orders of magnitude more productive than farmland, in terms of both animal and vegetal mass produced yearly. And it requires absolutely no human intervention. A forest doesn’t need to be watered, doesn’t need to be plowed, seeded, fertilized or protected against pests. A forest tends to just grow by itself and increase it’s productivity over time. A farm is basically hard core communism applied to plants. Very neat on paper, but in practice it doesn’t work. We’ve just gotten really good at working around the enormous problems we’re creating with our methods.

Tropical-Rainforest
Wow, I guess fairies must be spraying forests with pesticides and fertilizer from tiny invisible airplanes. How else would you explain it?

As fascists, we need to work in accordance with the natural order, not against it. Thus it makes perfect sense to understand how a forest works and let that design inform our own farming practices.

Some basic principles and concepts
What’s some of the problems with farming, and what can we learn from nature on how to avoid them?

First is plowing. This was always very time intensive. The point of plowing is to increase soil fertility by disturbing the soil. This creates bacteriological activity and brings deeper minerals closer to the surface. But over time, the soil becomes more and more barren. By disturbing the soil structure every year, we prevent the formation of humus, which is spongy soil filled with bacteria. Eventually all the bacteria in the soil die and the minerals are all used up. Plowing was a bad idea.

Plowing_ecomat
You wouldn’t do this to your friend. Don’t do it to your land, bro.

What about pest control? Why do we have to spend so much time and money pouring pesticides on our crops, or even manually removing pests? Why do we sometimes lose entire harvests to epidemics or invasions? This never happens in a stable ecosystem. Every “pest” has predators, and if the environment isn’t meddled with things will balance themselves out. Our way of creating huge fields with only one kind of crop makes the environment perfect for whatever parasite feeds on that crop, while leaving no room for the predators that control it. Instead, permaculture doesn’t concentrate a single crop in one area, and creates habitats for a variety of insects and animals close to the crops.

Spraying strawberry field with pesticides Spain
Turns out spreading poison all over your food might not be a good idea, in the long term. Honest mistake though.

What about fertilizers? Each season, the earth gets more barren of it’s minerals and bacteria. Conventional agriculture deals with this by pouring chemical fertilizers to artificially “re-enrich” the soil. Eventually this leads to soil erosion (fertile land becomes a barren desert). In permaculture, plants are matched together to complement their mineral needs and ability to enrich the soil. Also, instead of completely removing plants each season, the inedible parts are left to decompose in the field, enriching it and forming a “mulch” for the next season.

Sowing is also big time and resource drain. Part of that is inevitable. But many plants are perennial – they don’t need to be resown each season. Permaculture always favors perennial plants over annual ones, as the former become more productive over time.

These are some of the differences between conventional agriculture and permaculture. There are many more principles to learn, however.

2015-Pc-Cal-LR10
Jews treat nature with contempt. Fascists are actually close bros with plants and animals.

Advantages and disadvantages
An obvious disadvantage of permaculture is that it moves away from clean fields that can be totally mechanized and automated, and towards gardens with wide varieties of plant species not organized in neat rows. That means that while the labor involved maintaining the garden is much smaller, the harvest is much more demanding. It can’t be done with machines.

Land on which permaculture is practiced will become more fertile and more productive over time, even without additional human effort. Once a permaculture garden is established, you can leave and come back years later and things will still be more or less as you left them, albeit more mature and stable. A normal farm, if left unattended for any length of time, will be wrecked completely.

permaculture-garden2
A permaculture garden.

On the other hand, you’ll probably be producing different types of food than what conventional agriculture does, simply because you’ll be adapting the selection of plants to the climate, geography and other natural constraints of the land. That may mean having to change recipes, and the diet more generally.

Diet
And here we come to the main challenge, which is something permaculture books don’t generally address because they’re written by hippies. Permaculture moves away from growing grains on a large scale, because it’s way too much trouble without machinery (or at least work animals). They say that’s fine, fruit trees and squashes and all that are more productive per acre anyway.

The thing is that humans need both protein and calories to be healthy. That’s something most plants, outside legumes and grains, don’t have much of. Thus being a vegetarian and living on fruits, nuts and other perennial plants will cause malnutrition.

Somali-Famine
Ain’t no right wing death squad who’ll accept you if you look like this, bro. And I don’t mean being a Negro.

It’s necessary to implement animal products, if only dairy. But here lies the problem. Animals are usually fed with grains too. So the problem remains.

The solution is to innovate by creating forested animal pens. Instead of fencing of a barren field, you put the animals in a stable ecosystem with sources of food (but no predators) and shelters. Pigs can eat anything. Chickens will eat insects and other pests. Their droppings will contribute the the fertility of the land. Some have already started experimenting with this to various degrees.

Aren’t they adorable?

Once you have a good source of protein and energy (fat), the diet becomes sustainable and nutritious without a need for getting System food as a complement.

Conclusion

Fascism is about conformity with the natural order. It makes sense, then, to abandon the harsh and unnatural agricultural practices that our degenerate civilization is based on and adopt a wiser approach.

No, I’m not going hippie on you!

woodst10
Like, gas the kikes, man! The race war is all about, like, expanding your mind, dude. Whoa…

Permaculture is definitely the most efficient way to grow food in terms of time, space and resource investment. The fascist workshop series is written within the conceptual framework of a struggle against the System. This, by necessity, implies a need to maximize resources and keep a low profile.

But it’s more than that.

We’re not just fighting against the System. We’re also the harbingers of a new world, a new order. Food is the most basic human need, and a core aspect of the human experience. But fundamentally changing our relationship to it, a large scale social change would be enacted.

So, start working on that green thumb, fellow fascists!

THE STRUGGLE IS ETERNAL

eternalstruggle

We recently published an article advocating the final solution to our little hebrew problem. Reading the words of Max Macro made me reflect on this issue, and I’d like to share some of the insights I’ve had.

The struggle is eternal

There’s a certain satisfaction to be had in contemplating the absolute destruction of those who are sucking us dry and plotting our destruction. It’s a natural and healthy reflex. The only danger in it is the notion that by destroying our current enemies and competitors, we would be creating a new, eternal age of prosperity and freedom for our people.

Struggle and hardship is something we must always contend with. In all our endeavors, we have to seek to be stronger than the obstacles in front of us, not to make those obstacles disappear. Our current predicament isn’t that we have horrible conditions. Yes, we’re being invaded by third worlders. Yes, we’re being fleeced by jews and traitors. Yes, our economies are being dismantled and shipped to third-world shit-holes. But those problems pale in comparison to the kind of hellish problems our ancestors had to deal with.

The fact is that our woes are rather insignificant, in the grand scheme of things. The invasion could be stopped overnight with some suitably muscular law enforcement. The brown hordes could be deported in a year or two with our current organisational prowess and transport technology. The jews were kicked out countless times in the past, and nothing concrete is preventing us from doing so again. The problem isn’t our situation. We have more resources, technology and manpower than ever before in the past. We just need to harden ourselves to DO IT.

The jew fills an ecological niche

Our civilization is based on trust and hard work. This combination of trust and wealth, however, creates a ecological niche for parasites who can survive by leeching our resources away from us by exploiting our trusting nature.

Jews, as a race, basically became hyper-specialized to inhabit this ecological niche. Their instincts and biological traits got refined over thousands of years to better exploit our society. But hypothetically getting rid of the jews wouldn’t make that ecological niche disappear. It would leave a vacuum just waiting to be filled.

If jews were to somehow disappear, the most likely scenario would be for the worst elements of our own race to fill the niche now vacant. The cycle would then start again, but this time far more difficult to escape, since the enemy would wear the mask of our own people. If we’re close to disaster now, imagine what our descendants will have to deal with when they won’t be able to distinguish between the subversive leeches and their own people.

A long term strategy

Rather than worrying about “exterminating” our enemies down to the last (not that there’s anything morally wrong with that), we should be worrying about removing this ecological niche that springs up as a result of our nature.

The very existence of the jew is helpful in a certain sense. The knowledge of jewish duplicity makes us more vigilant and skeptical. Experience with these hebrews hardens our heart in a way that’s very desirable, if we’re to survive. Their disappearance would ensure that our vigilance would drop and make us vulnerable again to just such corruption in the future.

Perhaps a more fruitful approach would be to shape our culture around the notion of an eternal struggle between the forces of corruption and decay (embodied by the jew) and the aryan spirit of truth and heroism (which the nation does it’s best to inherit). This obviously would not involve having jews within our society. But if they were to exist in some reserve somewhere, under close watch, it would help avoid complacency.

Conclusion

There’s often a conflict between what is expedient and feels right on one hand, and what is ultimately wise on the other hand. It’s very hard for us mortal men to think of the consequences of our actions on future generations, in times when we personally will be long gone. But thinking only of what is immediately convenient is the mentality that’s given us the modern liberal mindset and our present problems.

It’s not within our power at this moment to enact any significant policy, one way or the other. As such discussions about these distant decisions are mainly thought experiments at this point. And of course, in the realm of propaganda there’s not space for subtle distinctions or moderation. But NOOSE isn’t a propaganda outlet destined for the masses, and we can afford to ponder on these far reaching questions as an exercise for future leaders of the various movements engaged in our struggle. One day some of us (or our sons) may have to make these decision. Let us hope we have the wisdom then to make the right one, and avoid letting history repeat itself too soon.

 

FERROCEMENT: SCULPTABLE STEEL

ferrocement

I’ve made numerous references to ferrocement in my previous articles in this series, but haven’t been too clear on what it is. The reason I couldn’t help talking about it before this article is just because ferrocement is so useful and versatile. Now we’ll see just how crucial of a tool this will be in a fascist builder’s arsenal.

This is the future.
This is the future.

The search for the perfect material

All construction materials have strengths and weaknesses. Bricks are fast and easy to lay, but expensive and relatively fragile. Cob is free and simple to make, but vulnerable to moisture and labor intensive. Concrete is tough and waterproof, but requires molds to pour into and is expensive when you use a lot of it. Wood is light and strong, but demands great precision in assembly, and is vulnerable to the elements.

The smart builder will use the materials that are the best fit for the job, and will combine materials to offset their mutual weaknesses. But there’s one material that is gaining popularity because of it’s great versatility.

After the race war is won, everything will look like this, brothers.
After the race war is won, everything will look like this, brothers.

What if you took the toughness of concrete, and removed the requirement of having a mold? What if you had the flexibility of steel, without the rust? What if you could use a fraction of the concrete to get the same result?

Ferrocement
Ferrocement is very simple to explain. You use steel mesh (chicken fencing) and rods (rebar) to sculpt a shape. Then you manually apply concrete to this shape until the steel form is entirely covered. That’s it. Why is this so great?

The steel mesh will “wick” the cement, preventing it from dripping off. This is what allows us to avoid using a mold to “hold” the cement as it dries. Because the ratio of steel to cement is much higher than in conventional reinforced concrete, the strength of the material is very close to pure steel, yet the concrete, if there are no failures or air pockets, will protect the steel against rust. And because the strength of the material is so great, very little of it is necessary compared with poured concrete. A small water tank could have walls less than an inch thick and still withstand the water pressure.

Yeah, you'll probably want to insulate that wall though.
Yeah, you’ll probably want to insulate that wall though.

Because of all these properties, you could use ferrocement for practically anything. It’s water proof, fireproof, can withstand enormous loads, can be made to fit any shape (I knew a guy who made actual sculptures using this techniques) and is relatively simple and cheap to use. But probably the most popular use right now is making cheap and durable water tanks.

Water storage
If you live off grid and independently from the System, there’s many reasons why you’ll want to store water. Of course, if you don’t have a well or access to a stream, then you’ll need to accumulate rain water. If you’re growing your own food, storing water is necessary to water your crops in dryer times. Emergency supplies of water can be a lifesaver in the case of a fire, or if your normal source of water fails you for some reason.

Pedro is working on his mesh frame. Soon his family will be able to drink mexican water.
Pedro is working on his mesh frame. Soon his family will be able to drink mexican water, instead of mud.

You can of course buy metal or plastic tanks, although they’re expensive. And in reality, their performance is far inferior to a ferrocement tank. Steel tanks are very strong, but vulnerable to corrosion – they have a relatively short life-span. Plastic tanks can leech toxins into the water and will get degraded if exposed to UV radiation (sunlight), and thus are usually buried underground. Yet if a lightweight plastic underground water tank sits empty for too long, the air pressure will tend to push it out of the ground (in the same way an empty water bottle will float above the water.)

Art Ludwig’s Water storage has detailed instructions on building ferrocement water tanks of all sizes. I strongly recommend consulting that book before you set about building yours, as there are many pitfalls to avoid and I could never cover them all in this article.

Another interesting point is that the same design could be used for fuel storage. After all, fuel is probably the product whose price best reflects the constant inflation of our currencies, and we always need it. Storing large amounts of it would be a wise investment, sure to pay off even in the near future.

The technique
The first step of the technique, as was mentioned earlier, is to create a frame to which the cement will be applied. But in fact, for some purposes, this frame doesn’t even need to be made of steel mesh. For the smallest sized water tanks, for example (1 cubic meter/250 gallons or less), will remain structurally sound even without the steel reinforcements as long as their geometry is well designed. This would be accomplished by filling a canvas bag with sand or sawdust, then plastering it by hand with the cement. Once dried, the bag would be emptied and then removed.

It's a beauty. A couple of those and you have enough water storage for a family.

But in most cases, steel mesh is used to form the desired shape. Smaller projects (which won’t endure enormous loads) can be completed exclusively with chicken wire, while other will need steel rods with a greater diameter.

The wire and rebar will be bent into the desired shapes, then tied together with steel string using pliers. Some projects will require a poured footing on which to stand, however.

Once the frame is complete, the plastering begins. This is usually done in teams of 2 people. One person presses a trowel or board against the back of the mesh, while the other applies the cement against it. Thus the cement is pressed into the mesh from both sides by the two workers. This process is repeated until the whole frame is covered in cement. Then the cement is left to cure for a few days. Curing must be done slowly however; if the weather is hot, dry and sunny, it may be necessary to cover the project in plastic tarp and even spray it with water to slow the curing process. If cement dries too quickly, it can form cold joints and fail later on in it’s lifespan.

Potential uses
Ferrocement is a relatively new and unexplored technique. The sky is the limit, and experimentation will yield some interesting uses for the future. In the meantime, here’s a list of things I’ve seen and ideas I’ve had:

  • Geodesic domes
  • Wall material

INTERVIEW: RIGHT WING DEATH SQUAD ENTERTAINMENT

RWDSent

NOOSE magazine has arranged an exclusive interview with youtube music outlet Right Wing Death Squad. RWDS brings a fresh new approach to far-right music, donning a pop aesthetic while setting a high standard for production values and technical execution.

What was the process which led you to your current beliefs and convictions? Any specific events that changed the way you look at things?
Zeiger

I have always been mildly politically engaged, but my beliefs never strayed too far from a center-right position. This changed shortly after watching streams of the Ferguson riots (around August 2014) and especially now after the migrant crisis in Europe. What really stoked my fire was the ridiculous reaction of the media and the general populace, and how tame and misguided it seemed in reaction to these incredibly troubling events. There have been plenty of other events like this in my lifetime, but these two affected me the most.
Right Wing Death Squad

What gave you the idea for this project? How did you start doing these parody songs?
Zeiger

I’ve been writing music and singing for most of my life, so that part was already there. One day, I heard a Youtube user’s parody song called “Blink 1488 – All The Rapefugees” and although it was incredibly hilarious, I wanted to do a more serious sounding version of my own. I contacted him (Flimzim) and he said he was totally fine with it, and I ended up turning it into an album of Blink 1488 songs. I have since recorded and released 19 parody songs from various genres and artists, and I have about just as many in the works.
Right Wing Death Squad

The production quality on your material is extremely impressive. Do you have a professional background or was this ever only a hobby? If so how did you learn?
Zeiger

I am self-taught, and I’ve been using the same DAW [ed: digital audio workstation] for over 10 years now so the production side comes naturally. Music in general has always been a passionate hobby of mine, but I’m hoping that RWDS can turn into something serious so that I can start focusing all my time on creating content.
Right Wing Death Squad

Can you talk to us a bit about your creation process? How do you choose the songs to cover, and where do you get inspiration for your lyrics? Also, what software and equipment do you use and recommend for other aspiring musicians?
Zeiger

For the covers, choosing the songs is the most complex part of the process. It mostly stems from my own tastes in music, but I also consider how the tone of the song will help carry the message and how the listeners will receive it. The singer and their style of singing has to at least somewhat fit my voice. The topics I choose usually emerge from the existing lyrics and manifest themselves from there, although sometimes I do scrap the original lyrical concept if I have a specific topic in mind. As far as equipment goes, believe it or not, I’ve been using a $30 Logitech headset to record all of my vocals so far, so if I had a message to other artists it would be to not be afraid to start small. I recently ordered a Samson USB Meteor Mic (still a pretty cheap mic), and although I haven’t tried it out yet, I’m certain that the quality of my production is only going to increase as I keep releasing content. As far as recommending software goes, this all depends on your level of experience and which software fits your needs. Everyone is going to have their own unique setup, and it’s best to just experiment with what works best for you.
Right Wing Death Squad

Right now pretty much all music produced in fascist and nationalist circles is hard core and abrasive. Nothing approaching the mainstream. Yet you cover a lot of material with mainstream appeal and a catchy quality to it. What gave you the idea to make pop-style nationalist music, and is this something you’d encourage others to do?
Zeiger

I think it’s important that we don’t confine ourselves to one type of music. We shouldn’t hide away from mainstream culture, and instead it should be our prime focus to take it back. Making this catchy pop music with the pro-white message is, at least in my mind, a good way to go about that. I’m also dipping into abrasive genres like metal, but that’s because I love heavier music and I think that the metalheads of our movement shouldn’t be denied their fun. Over time I’m going to hit as many different genres as I possibly can, while making sure that it still suits the level of quality I’m going for with RWDS.
Right Wing Death Squad

Your channel is devoted to parodies of existing songs. Are there original pieces in the works? If not, is that something you contemplate for the future?
Zeiger

I absolutely plan on writing my own music. I have the instruments, but I’ve been saving up for a new digital input so that I can record my own stuff. With that said, I’m having a lot of fun doing parodies right now, so I think once I finish everything I’ve wanted to get out of my system, I’ll focus on writing my own music so that I can actually sell it and distribute physical copies.
Right Wing Death Squad

A few of your most recent songs have had a very heavy sound. Do you intend to branch more towards that direction, or are you rather committed to exploring a variety of different styles?
Zeiger

I am 100% committed to exploring new genres, but it will follow my own tastes in music, which I think will help to continue differentiating myself from other content creators.
Right Wing Death Squad

Are you affiliated with any group or movement (which you’d like to plug)? Are you active in any online community?
Zeiger

In the same way that I don’t want to confine myself to one type of music, I’m going to do my best to keep my message separate from specific groups. I did write my most recent piece from the perspective of the alt-right, but I want to make it clear that when I write songs like that, I’m not trying to be that community’s spokesman. I wrote that track because someone (Milo) was trying to subvert that community and redefine what had (from my understanding) already been defined. As a content creator just trying to push out the best message for my people, I think that confining myself to one space would be counter-productive. The message will always be pro-white and pro-European, but the angle I approach it from will be varied depending on how I feel like writing that day.
Right Wing Death Squad

Any other comments or message for the readers?
Zeiger

Although the general movement I’m trying to help push forward is one that is serious and somber, I want my fans to have fun with my music. I’m having fun with it, and at the end of the day, I’m just trying to help create content to help people see inside a mind that is dealing with being a white male in the current year.

POWER GENERATION

power

Building infrastructure is well and good. But if you want to actually live in it, or do something in it, you’ll need energy. All activity in this world requires energy. In the modern world, we’re used to fulfilling all our energy needs simply by plugging appliances in the wall socket and paying our monthly electricity bill. It would be a grave mistake to keep that mindset when going off-grid, and expecting to just plop down some solar panels or wind turbines while maintaining the same lifestyle.

Good luck running your 3 freezers, 2 big screen tv's and you industrial oven off of a battery bank.
Good luck running your 3 freezers, 2 big screen tv’s and you industrial oven off of a battery bank.

We need to look at power from two different perspectives. First is the conserver mindset: reduce our needs as much as possible to become more free and independent. In the second place, we need to become very aware that electricity is just one form of energy, and rarely the most efficient or economical source of power for most applications.

Energy efficiency

If we want to be independent from the System, the first step is to reduce our energy needs as much as possible. This makes everything else much simpler. This may seem obvious. But it’s not. Because I’m not talking about cutting 10-20% on your energy needs. I’m talking reducing consumption by upwards of 90%. This is a transformative difference, not just a little change.

The reason this is so important, is that as your energy expenditures creep closer to zero, the effectiveness of your power supplies start being multiplied hugely. This means enormous savings in terms of money and labor. For example, a typical household will consume from 25,000 to 50,000 watt/hours in a day. A typical solar panel, costing 150$, will supply 100 watts. If you have 5 hours of sunlight in a day, that gives you 500 watt/hours per day. So each 150$ panel you buy will only supply 1-2% of your energy needs. This isn’t even considering the vast array of batteries you’ll need to keep up, and the land you’ll need to devote to them (since your roof won’t be able to hold 50-100 panels).

Inversely, if you reduce your needs to 2000 watt/hours per day (which is achievable), a 150$ panel will supply 25% of your daily energy. A little bit of money and labor will provide a much greater benefit than if you’re being wasteful.

Examples of energy saving measures

Here I’ll provide examples of drastic energy saving measures. The point is to get your imagination running in the right direction, and to help you understand that 90% savings isn’t an exaggeration.

Heating: Electric heating should be right out of the question. It’s a huge waste. With proper use of insulation, thermal mass and passive solar heating, it’s possible to keep a habitat livable without any form of heating, even in arctic weather. Add to that a rocket mass heater running on scavenged wood, and your heating costs can remain at nearly zero.
Cooking: Stoves are very wasteful appliances, whether they’re electric or use gas. Use the heating stove as a cooking surface when possible instead (the heat will end up in the house either way). Also, there are far more efficient ways to cook food: slow cookers, convection ovens and front loading toasters.
Electronics: A desktop computer can use up 300-600 watts when in use. A laptop will use less than 100 watts. Cellphones and tablets will consume a fraction of that. Any of these devices will let you check your email or read Noose, so go for the more economical one. Limit the use of televisions, powerful sound systems, etc. For any power hungry device you might want to use, there’s typically a very low power device that’ll do the same thing. Why listen to music alone on your 300 watt sound system if you can listen to it with headphones on a 20 watt mp3 player?

Root cellar: looks better than your fridge.
Root cellar: looks better than your fridge.

Appliances: Refrigerators and freezers are some of the most power hungry machines we use. This is because they run continuously, and need a compressor to keep the food cold. Most food doesn’t need to be kept in a refrigerator. The technique of root cellaring can be used instead to keep most of your food. You can use a mini-fridge for the rest, and keep it very full at all times (keeping an empty fridge cold consumes a lot more power than a full one). Adding extra insulation to the fridge would also help. For clothes washing and drying, there exist devices that use little or no power and do the job. For example, the “wonderwash” uses air pressure (and a little hand power) to clean clothes, requiring no electricity or gas. You can hang your clothes on a folding indoor rack to dry them.

A convection oven uses a fraction of the power, compared with a conventional electric oven.

Light: LED lights are more expensive, but last forever and consume a fraction of the power, compared with conventional bulbs. Your buildings should have windows anyway, so the need for light should be a negligible burden on your power system.
Tools: For many applications, quality hand tools will do the job, and will require no power. For more intensive applications, like sawing lumber, grinding, etc, it is possible to set up direct mechanical power rather than electrical. In other words, using a windmill, or water turbine to spin a flywheel connected to the tool. This is at least 2x as efficient as converting the power to electric and back again.
Pumping water: If possible, pressurize your water with gravity instead of a pump. Otherwise, get an electric pump that can turn on and off intelligently required, rather than being on continuously.

If you implement the above recommendations, living on 1000-2000 w/h per day is an easily achievable goal.

Types of power

As you could glean from the previous section, the most important concept to integrate when moving off grid is that electricity isn’t the only source of usable energy. And for many applications, it isn’t the most efficient.

All forms of energy need to be converted from one form to another to have practical utility. But each step of conversion involves a loss. Thus converting all your sources of energy to electricity and then converting your electricity into heating, cooling, mechanical power and light is very wasteful.

So our most basic strategy is to take each source of energy we have, and use it in the most direct way possible. Mechanical energy in the form of windmills and waterwheels/turbines should be used to directly power mechanical devices, before powering an electric generator. Chemical fuel like coal, wood or gas should be used to generate heat, before powering boilers or engines. And obviously, using a bicycle (human power) to generate electricity is stupid; it should be used to power devices directly.

Generating electricity

But of course, for many applications, electricity is the only choice, or the most efficient choice. So getting rid of electricity completely isn’t a good practical choice. But we need to be smart about how we generate our off-grid electric power, because many factors come into it and it’s easy to waste a great many resources. Our goal, ultimately, is to be as independent from the System as possible. Thus we don’t want our electricity to be so expensive as to require constant, large inputs of System money to keep it active.

The costs of the electric system can be split into four categories:

  • Fuel requirements
  • Initial investment for the generator
  • Maintenance costs (parts, repairs)
  • Expected lifespan

These costs can vary drastically depending on the location and time, so it’s impossible to give a definitive answer as to which system is the best. For example, if you’re living next to a stream, the “fuel cost” of hydro power is effectively zero. But if you need to rent the neighbor’s land to have access to the stream, suddenly your “fuel” has a cost. Today solar panels might cost 250$ each, but the cost is going down steadily. Repairing a diesel generator might be very expensive for one person, but another might be a skilled mechanic and be able to do it themselves.

The first step is to examine the situation, and determine what resources are available. If your land is in the woods, you probably have free access to wood. However, there will be little or no wind. In the city, it might be possible to get free used oil from restaurants who want to get rid of it. In any situation, there will be free sources of energy to be tapped.

Once you know the sources of energy that are available to you, you can make the cost/benefit analysis for each of them to find out the best one for you.

Alternative sources

Solar, wind and water power are well known, but there are other types of off-grid electricity generation methods in existence that aren’t well known. I’m going to go over them now to broaden your perspective and start you out on your research journey. Note that many of these methods can also be used to provide direct power, rather than generating electricity.

Don't actually do this.
Don’t actually do this.

Used cooking oil: A diesel engine can run on cooking oil. So if you have a source of free (or very cheap) cooking oil, this can be an attractive option. The problem is that at room temperature, cooking oil is too viscous and will not combust properly. So you need to install a device to pre-heat the oil before injecting it into the engine. Alternatively, there are systems to treat the oil chemically to reduce it’s viscosity. The advantage of the used cooking oil system is that you can use it to power vehicles as well as generate electricity.

Wood and coal: There are different ways to generate electricity using wood or coal. The most obvious is to have a steam engine. However, this is dangerous and demands constant surveilance. But you can also process them into a type of natural gas and use this gas to power a diesel generator. This is called a wood gas generator, and can be made using metal cans and welding equipment. Finally, wood gas can be converted into liquid fuel using the Fischer-Tropp process, though I’ve never heard of anyone doing this on a small scale.

Biogas: A gas similar to wood gas, discussed above, can be made from decomposing biological matter (food waste, manure, plant matter, etc). You’ll need a air-tight containment chamber to put the biological matter into. The gas will rise up as the matter rots. You can pipe the gas into a holding tank, which will be connected to your diesel generator.

Stirling engine: A Stirling engine transforms heat into power, much like a steam engine. However, it has the advantage of not exploding if left unattended, because it’s not intensely pressurized. If you can get your hands on one, then anything that can burn will provide you with electricity, if you connect it to a generator. This is a very versatile solution. Unfortunately Stirling engines aren’t really easy to acquire, short of building it yourself.

Conclusion

There’s little point in creating independent enclaves to resist the System if we’re totally dependent on the System for our energy needs. Having control over the production of our energy is just as important as producing food.

If we master these various techniques, then we will be in a position to offer the people a true alternative to the System. This knowledge is, quite literally, power.
