Soft Revolution: Part I

Soft Revolution

Part I

Drip, drip, drip.

Nothing like a little water, soft, nourishing, and consistent, to make a person realize the value and merit of a healthy drought.

Aesthetically, what of a broad expanse of Water, surrounded by undulating shoreline, outcroppings of boulders, natural debris, Pine trees, and blue sky? Magnificent, no?

Who wouldn’t want to swim, relax, or Fish in a venue such as this?

What of a Mountain stream, flowing steady, cascading brilliantly over a mountainous ridge, spilling outward and downwards, filling the basin below? What of the its great cousin, that Ocean of water, filling the great abyss of our natural home, giving us food, natural power, unlimited, and avenues of commerce and social contact?

We understand and feel some natural affinity to this placid description, knowing as well, that with a little help from Mother nature, a little change in atmospheric conditions, and viola, this placid context can soon change into tempest, Storm, and destruction.

Such is the placid life of a ‘drop’ of Water.

Containing such a valuable commodity, in the day to day routines of Life, as well, provide the individual an opportunity to share with the larger group, that Community, which sustains them both. There is a certain equanimity to this formula.

Remember, this all started with a single drip.

Such can be, and in most cases, is, the beginnings of change, of certain conditions necessary for rapid change; for Revolution.

In the modern world1, that is to say, the ‘world’ of today, there are many qualities and nuances, which bring one to wonder: Just what is this world coming too? What does this world mean, too me? The great mainstays, romantic illusions or common experience, grounded, or experiential proof, of a time in which the many parts fit; not always gingerly or safely, but the natural flow and rhythm was consistent, however much change sought its slow, yet ineluctable move toward an evolutionary shift. Moreover, the usual introduction of an existential shift, danger and threat, proved the most common of impetuses in garnering the momentum necessary to go beyond one’s normal capacity, one’s normal sense of complacency.

By some, the term Westernesse2, means ‘romantic license’, and is seen as ‘mythological’, as in ‘untrue’, vague, or ‘mythic’, as in Poetry or Prose, yet sums up the modern-day verbiage of ethno-nationalists, representing the West, as perfectly encapsulating the meaning of ‘western lands’. That is to say, All lands inhabited, conquered, maintained, and extended by this self-same people of Westernesse. And yes, the people of Westernesse do exist.

In Europe, America, South Africa, Australia, Russia, New Zealand, Canada, England and Scotland, the people of Westernesse exist in great numbers ruled, ostensibly, by ‘democratic’ systems. This later being the unique variations of location, temperament, and opportunity. This has brought about natural sensitivities, competition, and progressive change in the Western experience.

Throughout this variation, some of this change was caused by outside influence: War, introduction of social and political variation, Cultural appropriation by those who were given the chance of a ‘better life’, but who were not members of the host population, a comcomitant change in perceptions by the host population as well as the foreign insertion of numerical, cultural, and religious indoctrination, started the ineluctable path toward alienation and self-deprecation of the host populations in traditional Western lands.

This change has been slow…drip, drip, drip.

ii.

At first, as is the wont of intellectually honest, inquisitive, and altruistic people, which make up the West, the change in outlook, theology, awareness, and political adaptation was to become a mosaic, a cacophony of thought and action, a sense of continuous inertia, without possibility of breaking the inevitable outcome; finally, one senses the after-birth of this frenetic pairing: Canaille.

José Ortega y Gasset, in his Revolt Of The Masses, states simply:

There is one fact which, whether for good or ill, is of utmost importance in the public life of Europe at the present moment. This fact is the accession of the masses to complete social power. As the masses by definition, neither should nor can direct their own personal existence, and still less rule society in general, this fact means that actually Europe is suffering from the greatest crisis that can afflict peoples, nations, and civilisation.

He continues:

Such a crisis has occurred more than once in history. Its characteristics and its consequences are well known. So also is its name. It is called the rebellion of the masses. In order to understand this formidable fact, it is important from the start to avoid giving to the words “rebellion,” “masses,” and “social power” a meaning exclusively or primarily political. Public life is not solely political, but equally, and even primarily, intellectual, moral, economic, religious; it comprises all our collective habits, including our fashions both of dress and of amusement. 3

Here, he is speaking strictly of Europeans, in an ethnic-nationalist, context. As we extend this observation, and now include the myriad of races, religions, cultural imperatives and languages, one may rightly adduce the tremendous weight of conflict and nature-imperatives requisite for the instability and confusion of the Masses.

Instability, breeds confusion, both sociologically and spiritually. Moreover, the political manifestations, brought about in large part by the adaptability of modernity, seeks not the greater essence of nobility, but the nomenclature of the culture-destroyer. As we see in almost every region of the West, the political ‘status quo’ has begun to unravel. The ‘progressive’ pathology of ‘identity rearrangement’, has reached a crescendo of alienation to the Traditionalism of our way of life in the West. The consolidation of the progressive liberalism of the modern world has, as well, brought the beginnings of reaction. In the last two generations, this reaction has started to congeal, to ferment the ingredients, making the elixir a combustible combination.

In Sweden, for instance, the tell-tale signs of impending reaction have begun to manifest itself.

The Swedish population, a peaceful, intelligent, graceful people, have been overwhelmed by the spectacle of invasion. Never was immigration to the climes of the Northern European, of peoples from far-away lands, gods of alien and intemperate conditions, suited for the pristine and harsh realities of the northern European. The Socialist government, suited for a homogeneous population, is a fragile arrangement at best, and when faced with the ‘masses’, and influx of humanity, without even being asked by their government for the need to do this, the people of Sweden are, even now, seeing their national State succumb to the threats and violence of persons displaced, in large part, by the exigencies of other Western powers, still living off the remnants of failed policies and financial greed.

The Swedish Governmental institutions serving the People of Sweden, have dragged their feet over the last decade thinking, perhaps, that the ‘rule of law’ for their own people and way of life, actually means that all common-sense be suspended, when dealing with foreign persons, however their need and introduction has been fostered on to the people of Sweden and their way of Life.

A recent [Swedish] GovernmentReport4 has, surprisingly, used some very strong language when describing the future of Sweden, and the future of immigration, and points out the concentrated efforts of at least one theocratic/political organization, which is aiding, fostering, and developing a systematic ‘counter-culture’, to that of Swedish ethnic imperatives. Moreover, the ‘politically correct’ narrative, as is the case in all Western nations, has provided the greatest, and most severe, impediments to the future of Sweden.

Academia, the traditional realm of reason, if not also the necessary ‘liberalism run amok’ reservoir of the progressive indoctrination of all Western societies, has taken a position that information like the governmental report, smacks of ‘conspiracy’, but offers no real refutation to the Report.

The small and vitriolic ‘democratic debates’, however, are nothing but the attempt to garner some unseen accolade from persons or institutions, which have an agenda completely devoid of sympathy for the Swedish People. It is hoped that the slow, ineluctable introduction of these methodologies will, in the end, pass the stamina of the people to elimnate this intrusion.

Many non-Swedes, such as Barbara Lerner Spectre, who has openly stated that:

I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive. 5

In France, it is worse.

Former President of France, Nicholas Sarkozy, like Barbara Spectre, are from Jewish antecedents, making claims by european nationalists that foreign ‘interests’, be that cultural or racial, is making significant inroads into the meta-political discussions of national Identity. The old-guard French version of American ‘neo-conservatism’ has followed the same logic: What is good for them is not, strictly speaking, good for the People.

Below, are quotes from former President Sarkozy:

  • “The goal is to meet the challenge of racial interbreeding. The challenge of racial interbreeding that faces us in the 21st Century.
  • It’s not a choice, it’s an obligation. It’s imperative. We cannot do otherwise. We risk finding ourselves confronted with major problems.
  • We MUST change; therefore we WILL change. We are going to change ALL at the same time. In business, in administration, in education, in the political parties. And we will obligate ourselves as to results.
  • If this volunteerism does not work for the Republic, then the State will move to still more coercive measures.”
  • The challenge of racial interbreeding that France has always known. And in meeting the challenge of racial interbreeding, France is faithful to its history.”

True French Men and Women, of which I know many, have significantly differing views on this matter.

The riots6 in the Streets of Paris, including many and diverse townships7, have reached a fevered pitch, and many speak of Civil War. This view, just like in the American experience, shows what frustration and the deleterious effects of countering natural law, with that of incremental liberalism, brings.

The timing, or might say the ‘time’ factor, has been generational. This process continues at present. The West is saturated with the echoes of historical examples of the toppling of Nations through excess, both culturally and racially. Ironic it is, then, that France, with a history of absorbtion like her neighbor Spain, which after 600 years, brought the wrath of Roland to defeat the inroads made by renegade Europeans, and Islamic pirates and religionists. Not much is mentioned in today’s journalism or academic halls, of the horrible Slave Trade8, prostitution, and degradation propagated by Invasions such as we are witnessing today.

The crucible we find ourselves drowning in, was made by us, and no one else. The involvement of ‘others’ is almost a side issue now. We, ourselves, have allowed time to pass, for the countless drops of water to fill this vessel we call the West, to the brim. Soon, very soon, the overflow will carry not only the invaders over the top, and since nature abhors a vacuum, this overflow will, also, carry US away. Whose fault? Maybe none, or all. Nevertheless, it is the time given to us that matters.

Drip…drip…drip…

Which Way, then, goest thou, Western Man…?

Notes:

1 Cf. Modernity, such as that seen by Evola or René Guénon seems to be counter-point to one another. In this context above, it is ‘anti-Tradition’, “Modernity, or the Modern Age, is typically defined as a post-traditional,[citation needed] and post-medieval historical period (Heidegger 1938, 66–67, 66–67). Central to modernity is emancipation from religion, specifically the hegemony of Christianity, and the consequent secularization. Modern thought repudiates the Judeo-Christian belief in the Biblical God as a mere relic of superstitious ages (Fackenheim 1957, 272-73; Husserl 1931,[page needed]).[note 1] It all started with Descartes’ revolutionary methodic doubt, which transformed the concept of truth in the concept of certainty, whose only guarantor is no longer God or the Church, but Man’s subjective judgement (Alexander 1931, 484-85; Heidegger 1938,[page needed]).[note 2].“

Therefore, ‘modernity’ is anti-Western in scope, as well as subject to the rationalism of the Modern.

The ‘extreme’ duality of both René Guénon and Evola, regarding escotericism and occult philosophy are, to many, distractions from a modern and existential threat. Form and function are strange bedfellows to coreligionists, the metaphysics of mysticism. FLS

2From one who was, in fact, Mythic (or, perhaps, mystic) Tolkien says the name is ‘…derived from rare Middle English Westernesse … where the meaning is vague, but may be taken to mean “Western lands”, as distinct from the East inhabited by the Paynim and Saracens.’ (From The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, No 276, dated 1965).
