Memorial Day: Remembering the Dead 2

The true Memorial Day slogan should be: “Never Again.” -Jeremy Weiland

The idea of “democracy” has persuaded countless gullible people that they are somehow “consenting” when they are being coerced. The real triumph of the state occurs when its subjects refer to it as “we,” like football fans talking about the home team. That is the delusion of “self- government.” One might as well speak of “self-coercion” or “self-slavery.” –Joseph Sobran

by Anna Morgenstern (originally published by Center for a Stateless Society)

The government holiday now known as Memorial Day has become largely, in practice, ”Barbeque day” here in the USSA.  The purpose for which it was established is much more nefarious.  It is meant to be a memorial of the soldiers who died fighting for the government (specifically for Union soldiers after the Civil War, it was expanded after WWI).  But from an anti-state point of view, there is a good purpose in remembering our dead soldiers.  That would be the same as remembering the victims of any atrocity.  So that instead of saying “thanks for propping up our government” we can say “never again”.

The United States, like most nation-states I suspect, is chock full of war memorials.  Every city has a few.  The US has been a very warlike nation in its short history.  These memorials, in addition to a token pacification of the pain of losing family members in war, act as an incentive to potential new soldiers.  “If you should die fighting, we will remember your sacrifice.”  But what have they sacrificed for?  Despite what the propaganda saying says, they did not, in most cases, die for our freedom.

There are only two cases of US government war (post-revolution) where any sort of case could be made that the government was fighting for its citizens’ freedom:  The Civil War, and WWII.  Despite the fact that there is a growing  faction of people who argue otherwise, I think the Civil War has a decent case to be made.   Once the southern states seceded, there was no longer any sort of legislative possibility of freeing the slaves in those areas.  If the US had opened its border to fleeing slaves and gone as far as to extract them from the south, there likely would have been war anyway. And the southern states seceded, at least in part, over fears that slavery would be abolished.  However, even in this case, there is a lot of moral ambiguity.  Did the northern states emancipate their slaves in 1860?  Even the emancipation proclamation only claimed to free the slaves in the confederate territories.  And the war itself was conducted using tactics that amounted sometimes to crimes against humanity.  The Civil War was not explicitly fought in order to free the slaves, but to reclaim the territory of the southern states.   Does anyone believe that if the CSA had emancipated its slaves in 1861 that the US government would have called off the war?  Lincoln could have said something to this effect.  He could have said “we accept your right to secede, but we cannot accept your enslavement of millions.”  But of course he didn’t, and so the war was at best a dark grey affair.  It is this war which produced much of the war memorials and Memorial Day itself, as the government tried to pacify its people from the anguish and horror of what had just transpired.

As for WWII, the possibility of the Axis successfully taking North America may have been unlikely, but it was a real threat.  Hitler was working (somewhat unsuccessfully) on cruise missiles, long range bombers and nuclear weapons to use against us, and Japan had struck our shore.  So in this instance, there was a self-defense motivation to fight and win this war.  It has been argued that FDR intentionally manipulated the US into the war, which is entirely possible, yet it is also possible that Japan would have attacked us sooner or later anyway.  Our conduct in the war however amounted to mass murder of civilians through bombing, both nuclear and otherwise.  And let’s not forget the internment camps, where 100000+ US citizens were imprisoned simply for having Japanese ancestry.  WWII was also a direct result of the effects of WWI and the terrible, punitive conditions imposed on Germany by the Treaty Of Versailles.  And WWI was one war that the US entered simply for reasons of world domination, economic and otherwise.  Had we not entered, it is likely that the allies would not have been able to press for “unconditional surrender”.  As for the Jews, they were turned away from our shores during Hitler’s reign before, and even after we entered the war.  Not one bomb was dropped on the train tracks leading to the camps, though bombing raids were taking place nearby.  Why didn’t the US government say “Send us your huddled masses, even Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals”?  Again, this one is at best, a dark grey area.

Outside of these two conflicts, the US was involved militarily over and over simply for reasons of economic and political domination.  We still are today.  The extensive war in Afghanistan no longer has much if anything to do with Al Qaeda, if it ever did.  And Iraq is simply a case of US power politics taken to the level of mass murder.  You don’t have to poke very deeply to see the economic corruption behind the scenes of these wars, just as with Vietnam and Korea, Panama and Grenada, Cuba and the Phillipines.  General Smedley Butler gave a rather famous speech called “War is a Racket“, which he later expanded, and it’s still relevant today.  To quote one of the more well-known passages:

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

Governments will always create pretexts, however thin, for their activities, especially war.  But in most cases, it is the same sort of business-government corruption that occurs throughout our economy, only writ large and more deadly.  So when you go about your memorializing this Memorial Day, please, remember those who died (unwittingly, for no soldier would openly fight for something as crass as gangsterism, unless he was getting a cut of the action, which in most cases, they don’t) both soldier and civilian, to fatten the pockets of the power elite.  And remember that as long as we have a power elite who historically have been willing to kill off entire cities to make a few extra bucks, we will always have war.  Remember that.  And if you do, perhaps one day we can honestly say “never again”.

-Taki Theodoracopulos

“The “clash of civilizations” is, in a very literal sense, a clash of God and Mammon. The Islamic revolutionaries are driven by a fanatical devotion to their god and the promises they believe he has made to them if only they take up arms on his behalf. The nations of the West are driven by an almost as fanatical devotion to Mammon, that is, to wealth, luxury, power, pleasure and privilege. Further, the culture of the West combines this unabashedly materialist ethos with rejection of strength and discipline in favor of a maternalistic emphasis on health, safety, “sensitivity”, “self-esteem”, “potential”, “personal growth”, “getting in touch with one’s inner child”, “feelings” and other concepts common to pop culture psychobabble. Of course, the socio-cultural ramifications of this is to create a society of weaklings, mediocrities and crybabies.”

The National-Anarchist Concept of Tribe

Why Be a National-Anarchist

Summer of ’69

Those of you who have “third way’ Anarchist blogs of your own (or are considering such) may wish to re-post some of these. I tried to keep things simple for newcomers. I posted the Mailer article because Mailer’s ideas have always seemed to me to be an excellent model for what the practical application of Anarchist, Libertarian, National-Anarchist, DeBenoistist, etc. ideas might be in a modern society.

We Need Volunteers, Damn It!! 10

Over the past month or so, I’ve probably had at least half a dozen conversations with different colleagues and comrades regarding the need to get this pan-secessionist, national-anarchist, tribal-anarchist, anarcho-pluralist, alternative right, conservative revolutionary, whatever we are movement off of the internet and into the realm of real-world action. Some of our colleagues (most notably, the Bay Area National Anarchists) are already doing this. So what are the rest of us waiting for?

I’ve come full circle on this. For some years (roughly 1986-1992) I was heavily involved in activism of all different kinds. If it was part of the radical Left during those years, I was part of it. After developing the desire to move past some of the deficiencies I found on the Left, I became inactive for a good number of years and devoted myself instead to private study, radical journalism, and what might be called “behind the scenes” efforts. I recall a conversation with a close comrade circa 2003 where I said that I wasn’t interested in any activism at that point, on the grounds that before we could have a fresh and dynamic radical movement, we first needed to have a solid intellectual foundation for such a movement. After observing subsequent events in radical circles for a few years after that, I wrote in 2006:

In the realm of strategy, I have to confess to being a fairly orthodox Bakuninist. This perspective emphasizes the necessity of a militant vanguard and conspiratorial secret societies composed of radical intellectuals and activists acting as a leadership corps of a larger populist movement of which the lumpenproletariat and the rural population are the class vanguard. This is the strategy that was utilized by history’s most successful anarchist movement, that of the Spanish anarchists. Indeed, it was Bakunin’s emissary Fanelli who first planted the seeds of what was to become classical Spanish anarchism. As I will attempt to demonstrate, this approach might be quite feasible for modern North America as well. At present, the primary intellectual framework of a new American radicalism is pretty well complete…

The next step is the assembling of the “principled militants” whom Bakunin recognized as the intellectual and activist vanguard of the insurgency. This is not to be confused with the Marxist-Leninist concept of the “vanguard” whose only purpose is the achievement of military dictatorship for the sake of managing a centrally planned economy. We are now in need of an organizational framework that can play the same role as that of the FAI in the development of Spanish anarchism. Translated into modern American terms, such an organization would be a combination think-tank and activist and propaganda front, sort of an anarchist alternative to ruling class entities of a similar nature…

Four years later, such “militant vanguard” groups have slowly started to emerge. With increasing frequency, websites, blogs, editorials, and new articles have started to appear that present the alternative anarchist tendencies, the alternative right, secession, and other related outlooks in a positive light. Consequently, our enemies have begun to take notice as well. Last night, it was suggested to me by a leading figure in the new radical milieu that there could and should be at least 30 alternative anarchist “tribes” active in North America. Unfortunately, there are only about five at present and plans for a few more in the works. Another comrade recently suggested to me that a present we have all the theoretical work floating around that we need at present, but what we are lacking are serious volunteers who can turn theory and action into strategy.

In recent times, as I’ve been working on networking projects for the North American secessionist movement, it has occurred to me that it will be the local groups who from the foundation of any future pan-secessionist effort. That has always been my position, but the difficulties I’ve encountered involving regional secessionist efforts have driven the point home further that localism is really where it’s at. With regards to secession, Norman Mailer rather than Jefferson Davis should be our role model. Some years ago I came up with an idea called the “100 Cities Project.” The idea was to find a hundred volunteers in a hundred different cities in the U.S. to run symbolic campaigns for mayor of their respective cities on Mailer’s model, and to do so simultaneously during the same election season so as to generate a blitz of media coverage regarding issues of decentralization and secession. But before such an effort could work, there would have to be strong local organizations capable of supporting such efforts with resources, time, and manpower.

So let’s get busy building functional and active local organization, collectives, “tribes” whatever we want to call them. Recently new groups have emerged in Dayton and Ontario. I’m told plans for a queer-oriented national-anarchist group are in the works. We can build local organizations around whatever themes or cultural identities the participant wish: race, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, class, ecology, philosophical beliefs, economic preferences, etc. There can be different groups for Eurocentrists, pagans, Christians, Muslims, queers, blacks, native peoples’, women, primitivists, anarcho-capitalists, syndicalists, Evolans, Nietzscheans, and so forth. But whatever our individual or collective preferences, let’s just get something going. With these considerations in mind, I am announcing the launching of a new project for my own local area, Richmond Attack the System (RATS).

Vote for Truth in Politics: Elect Linda McMahon Reply

I’ve often said the pro-wrestling industry is the best analogy for the American political system. It may no longer be an analogy. Thomas Knapp seems to agree.

She’s never held political office before (and she still faces a primary fight in August), but if she’s elected this November McMahon’s 30-year career in professional wrestling will make her a strong contender for the “Most Experienced Politician in American History” belt before she ever even sets foot on the Senate floor.

Professional wrestling, as exemplified by WWE, is the purest imaginable distillation of the political ethos as art, specifically theater. Its executives have created a fantasy world in which they and the other actors fight an ongoing series of epic battles — extended wars, even — over imaginary issues.

Questions for Pro-Immigrationists 4

These are some questions that left-wing proponents of mass immigration have never been able to answer satisfactorily (at least not to my satisfaction):

1. What will be the fate of such matters as womens’ rights, gay rights, church/state separation, free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of scientific inquiry, and exemption from excessively harsh punishment when Islamic fundamentalist parties become competitive in European elections?

2. Will not the allowance of mass Islamic immigration into the West eventually result in the overthrow of present day Enlightenment civilization in the same way that Christianity overthrew classical pagan civilization?

3. Will not mass immigration from Latin America into the U.S. not result in a replay of the Mexican War in the U.S. Southwest?

4. Will not the demographic threat posed by mass immigration result in the traditional ethnic and national groups of Europe and the Anglo nations going the same way as the American Indians?

5. If whites become a minority in the future America, will they not suffer the same fate as whites in present day Mugabe-ruled Zimbabwe? Are not whites legitimate in seeking to avoid such a fate for their posterity?

I’m still waiting for the answers.

Still Stuck in the 1960s 7

Just saw this post and discussion among my left-libertarian former colleagues, now adversaries. I’m not a Rand Paul fan, and I supported his father mostly because he takes a more or less straight Rothbardian line on foreign policy (i.e. to the left of Chomsky). Rand seems to be more of a professional politician type, and compromises more on the big issues. I’m against running for federal offices anyway, unless it’s done for the purpose of agitating for secession by regions and localities (e.g. the positions of Larry Kilgore, the RPN, or the Quebecois Bloc).

But what I found most interesting was the amount of attention given in the comments section to sit-in protests against segregated lunch counters in the 1960s. As if that’s something anarchists in 21st century America need to be worried about.

Former Federal PIG Predicts National-Anarchist Revolution in America Reply

Read all about it.

In decades, not centuries, we will split apart like the Soviet Union into a loose confederation of autonomous states. People will refer to us like they do that area of the Balkans now known as The Former Yugoslavia, or similarly to the way Russia and its old republics are now known, as the old Soviet Union.

If the goal of this nation is reflected in our motto of E Pluribus Unum, out of many, one; then truly this 200-plus year experiment in representative democracy and melding ethnicities has failed, and failed spectacularly.

Here are some similar sentiments from Michael O’Meara of The Occidental Quarterly and from Christian Reconstructionist Gary North. Read this stuff and then go back and watch the old videos of Jerry Rubin from my last post. Isn’t it interesting that the radical right is now saying a lot of the same stuff as the radical left from the 60s?

Remembering the Great Jerry Rubin Reply

This guy was a hero of mine during my youth. Watching this stuff again 25 years later, I can’t say there’s much that I don’t still agree with.

Yippie to Yuppie, On the Sixties

So Much for Liberal "Diversity" 1

Pat Buchanan nails it.

If Kagan is confirmed, the Court will consist of three Jews and six Catholics (who represent not quite a fourth of the country), but not a single Protestant, though Protestants remain half the nation and our founding faith.

If Kagan is confirmed, three of the four justices nominated by Democratic presidents will be from New York City: Kagan from the Upper West Side, Sotomayor from the Bronx, Ruth Bader Ginsburg from Brooklyn. Breyer is from San Francisco.

What kind of diversity is this—either in geography or life experience?

While Sotomayor went to Yale Law School, the other three liberals went to Harvard, though Ruth Bader Ginsburg graduated from Columbia. Seems a fairly narrow range for a party that once claimed to be America’s party.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg tied for first in her class at Columbia, but neither Obama nominee is academically distinguished. Sotomayor called herself an “affirmative action baby” who, at Princeton, was urged to read children’s books in the summer to improve her reading and writing skills. Kagan never served as a judge, never litigated a case before being named solicitor general, never wrote a book or anything else anyone has turned up that manifests real legal scholarship.

From her Princeton thesis on the sad demise of 20th-century socialism, to her tears at the defeat of the radical liberal Senate candidate Elizabeth Holtzman in 1980, to her hostility to the U.S. military on the Harvard campus while dean of the law school, Kagan has revealed herself to be one more Ivy League leftist anxious to use a lifetime seat on the court, winning the plaudits of her peers by imposing her ideology on a nation that has never voted for it.

Pro-Immigration Activists Are Their Own Worst Enemy by Filmer

“The Italians were called wops, the Jews were called hymies, I was of course a greaseball, and every Hispanic was a spic. Well, we all got along famously! It was rough, but it was fine.”

-Taki Theodoracopulos

“The “clash of civilizations” is, in a very literal sense, a clash of God and Mammon. The Islamic revolutionaries are driven by a fanatical devotion to their god and the promises they believe he has made to them if only they take up arms on his behalf. The nations of the West are driven by an almost as fanatical devotion to Mammon, that is, to wealth, luxury, power, pleasure and privilege. Further, the culture of the West combines this unabashedly materialist ethos with rejection of strength and discipline in favor of a maternalistic emphasis on health, safety, “sensitivity”, “self-esteem”, “potential”, “personal growth”, “getting in touch with one’s inner child”, “feelings” and other concepts common to pop culture psychobabble. Of course, the socio-cultural ramifications of this is to create a society of weaklings, mediocrities and crybabies.”

-Keith Preston

Wasted Years by Iron Maiden

Life is war and conflict, struggle and strife, from conception till death…Never shall the lion lie down peacefully with the lamb…”

Why are those who espouse Univeral Love, Tolerance, and ‘Human Brotherhood,’ usually the most screwed up people you’ve ever met, socially and emotionally? Not to mention some of the nastiest and most self-centered narcissists around?”

-Chris Donnellan

“What You Believe is Not as Important as What You Do.”

C4SS: Find Your Political Philosophy 6

The Center for a Stateless Society has a new version of one of those “find your political philosophy” quizzes up. This is actually much better than most others I’ve encountered. There are more questions and the questions are more nuanced and varied in content. Here are my results:

67% Economic Leftist (Economic Leftist / Economic Rightist)
81% Anarchist (Anarchist / Statist)
100% Anti-Militarist (Anti-Militarist / Militarist)
74% Socio-Cultural Liberal (Socio-Cultural Liberal / Socio-Cultural Conservative)
77% Civil Libertarian (Civil Libertarian / Civil Authoritarian)
