The Promise of a New Land:
The belief in Territory

Diverse populations, that is, in a racial sense, no matter the cosmopolis of its language, has never realized a higher culture in the real sense, at least not for long. The many attempts, including the great “experiment” of the United States, have failed. The antagonisms are many. The brutalization of the many inhabitants by each opposing “group” is natural, albeit dysfunctional, and cannot support the integrity of any given organized culture. The platitudes given the populace by its erstwhile leaders are political posturing, plain and simple. They elect to sympathize with “special interest groups” in order to gain an advantage in a “numerical” democracy; this does not promote the real interests of the “host-race” on which mores, spirit, and destiny-will the Nation/Culture was founded. This exacerbates this entire dysfunctional process. Anyone who questions this process is considered a radical by the existing order.
In ROTW, the entire concept of a rising, fledgling, and independent people, presupposes a natural and independent Political State. Without a state, there can be no real affirmation of either independence, nor freedom. As such, the dream of many of those Western men and women must, at all costs, come to grips with the reality of both a natural and geographical State. To this end, to be sure, have been many and varied attempts to distill, and explain to the various adherents and visionaries which encompass the racial/nationalist struggle for a homeland dedicated, and created for members of the West – just as had their forefathers and mothers realized, of yesteryear.
The Rise of a New West is predicated on it.
I have often said that “…the search for Land is over…”, and so it is.
As this discussion has been in the forefront of many personal, as well as public discussions and debates, and seeing the smallest of movements, once again, in the reemergence of this basic, and pivotal role of White Nationalist policy, as it relates to the future growth of a national direction.
Moreover, I feel it is opportune to bring this discussion to the fore again, although in a more oblique, and revised version.
Rather than quote all the ‘usual suspects’, erudite and world-worn though they are, and most certainly deserve our attention, such as Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Kant, Plato, Aristotle, Jefferson, Adams, Jay, and even Franklin, I will try and encapsulate (even offer a few quotes…a mean feat, but remembering also, to assuage those who thrive off this obligatory bulwark of fact and faith) the construct, although not the methodology, of my antecedents, our forefathers, those who made us, who gave us this elusive and mercurial process of ‘thinking for ourselves’, and thereby creating, that environ most suitable for us and our children.
It is well and good that we, White Nationalists, proceed and direct our ideas and common-sense applications of form, as it were, to our fellows, those rudimentary and common-folk who, in actuality, are our neighbors, our wives and sisters, our work-place brethren and, most importantly, to ourselves. To inculcate ideas and forms of methodology are fine, in the main, and what other recourse can we count on? The innumerable words and phrases are, of course, a necessity, until that time that necessity, itself, requires more of us.
In my mind, the penultimate Idea, or as the converse may be attributed, is that Land, or in the abstract, ownership of land, is the absolute cornerstone of White Nationalist philosophy. Moreover, the realization that soil, unlike blood, is continuous, even when changed, superficially, by erosion or man-made enterprises; blood, on the other hand, may be changed, diluted and made more malleable by indifference and lack of responsible attention.
Therefore, it is Land, in its permanent and decidedly unique inference of human habitation, that our discussion relates to a more mundane, yet not so distant interaction with ourselves and our posterity. Land, in a Western ideation, is sacrosanct, a veritable ‘holy grail’ to those independent and sovereign souls who, among the larger body of the earths populace, see the harnessing of a ‘natural’ thing, to be a duty, a responsibility of a dutiful husband man, who would till the land, thereby bringing forth the substance of life, guaranteeing him and his family, the necessities of life and, by extension, those that come after.
Yes, and what comes after?
Those who have made the study of Natural Law a life-long pursuit have, almost to the man, decidedly come to the conclusion that it is longevity, by its very nature, is that which precludes the loss of sustained serfdom. Slavery is, by all accounts, a state of un-natural affairs, although is understood by such as Ragnar Redbeard and Darwin, as a state of nature, however unsavory it might be. Nevertheless, it is to longevity that we address ourselves, namely: Perpetuity.
To ‘hold land’ at the behest of a State, or any authority is, without reservation, opposed by White Nationalists. The revitalization of a racial state is predicated upon this simple realization.
Moreover, to secure Land, proper, is the basis for action of a free people:
the inhabitants of any country who are descended and derive a title to their estates from those who are subdued and had a government forced upon them against their free consents retain a right to the possession of their ancestors…for the first conqueror never having had a title to the land of that country, the people who are the descendants of, or claim under, those who were forced to submit to the yoke of a government by constraint have always a right to shake it off and free themselves from the usurpation or tyranny which the sword has brought in upon them…’ [§192]. ‘Their persons are free by a native right, and their properties, be they more or less, are their own and at their own disposal, and not at his’ [§194].
This, of course, leads the stouthearted to conclusions, ironic though it might appear to some of us, that:
No damage therefore, that men in the state of nature (as all princes and governments are in reference to one another) suffer from one another, can give a conqueror power to dispossess the posterity of the vanquished, and turn them out of that inheritance, which ought to be the possession of them and their descendants to all generations….¶184
Their persons are free by a native right, and their properties, be they more or less, are their own and at their own disposal, and not at his. ¶194
The insistence of tried and true methods, however, seem to have been passed by in the frenetic attempt to ‘convince’ our brethren of the ‘rightness’ of our cause; instead, we should, all of us, attempt to reaffirm the basis, yes the basic realizations of the primacy of our attempt to become a People, once again, by fostering, and inculcating every waking day, the realization that without that personal interdiction of our basic and most intrinsic need for a viable estate, firstly, of personal property, as well as the necessity to maintain this property, in perpetuity, is of the most permanent and incendiary qualities of White Nationalism.
I believe that most of us agree to two things:
- That a ‘place’, physical and identifiable, be a prerequisite to a future homeland/ethno-state’
- That a ‘physical’ and identifiable People populate, as the sole representatives of that people, this ‘particular’ place, so indicated.
This may be an inversion, to some, of ‘blood and soil’, but I feel it places the chicken before the egg; this does not, however, decrease the ideation of ‘blood and soul’, but only reinforces it.
White Nationalists know, or should know, that it was Law, both of the legal variety, as seen conditionally by our English forebears, as well as seen by those considering the natural variety, as the above quotes emphasize. Even Njal, in the Icelandic Saga’s, saw this clearly as “Me lögum skall land byggja og ólögum eya,”which recognizes both a ‘discipline’ as well as a causual effect upon the relationship between the two elements.
One must, firstly, possess property, before one can lay claim legally to it.
This brings us to today’s effort to reclaim, as well as establish, a real territory, an ethno-state, in which we might begin, again, the long process of revitalizing our status as free and sovereign people; to accumulate wealth as our skills support, and begin the long and perilous route of establishing a viable Industrial America, that productive state in which we can, honestly, compete with ourselves, as well as others, to build a nation consonant with our advances in technology and our innate desires.
Once we have convinced our people of the ‘natural rights’ of possessing, in a generational setting, the environment in which we live, we may better and more forcibly, remain fixed to our ‘place’, thereby inculcating and making real, our duty and obligation to our Nation.
Such is the hope of White Nationalism for all our people.
