The Way Forward

If you think things are bad now just imagine how bad things will get. Liberalism is a progressive philosophy, which means that it cannot stop it must constantly move and change. But it will change according to the logic that is Liberalism, towards creating the Autonomous Individual and the breaking apart of everything that stands in it's way. So unless we stop it things can only get worse.

The question of course is how do we stop it?

Before we get to that I want to talk about the four things that we need to concern ourselves with:

ideology
politics
policy
organisation

Ideology is what do we believe and why do we believe it.

Politics is how do we get political power.

Policy is what do we want to do with political power once we have it.

Organisation is putting it all together, along with everything else that is required to achieve our aims.

I think that currently we are stuck in the ideology phase. We keep having the same discussions relating to the same subjects. Of course it is important to know what we believe and why we believe it. That is the correct starting point but it is a lousy finishing point. To achieve our aims we need to move from ideology without losing track of our ideology.

We need to start focusing on politics, policy and organisation. The gaining of political power, what we intend to do with that power and we need to create the organisation to get there. None of these things are easy but they all need to be done. We would all like to short circuit the system and to change things right away, but I do not realistically see that happening. We need to learn patience and to accept that we need to do more than want things to change, we need to act.

But not in a stupid way, we need to do what Liberalism has done and create a logic. That way it is hard to lose your direction because that logic determines your direction. We need to be consistent in our thinking and in our direction. In war there are four phases:

Retreat
Defence
Attack
Advance

We need to understand that all four are valid in war and politics and that we will not always win and to prepare for that. We are far to ready to accept defeat, instead of accepting that it is a phase that we have a choice in changing. We must stop thinking of ourselves as flotsam without any control over the future. We must stop simply complaining and begin the much harder job of changing things. To do that we need to organise, to do things while accepting that victory is only one possible outcome, that it is not preordained. But that that should not stop us because this is a long war. It will not be won in a day, a year or a decade, it will last longer than us. This war is eternal, politics has no winners, only constant fighters and if you stop fighting you can lose.

There is the paradox that we face, that while we can never win 100% of what we want we can lose 100% of what we have. We need to defeat our defeat and to do that we need to fight. In politics you fight as much with your mind as with your physical efforts. The way to fight is with organisation, lets get organised!

A Path For Women In A Traditionalist Society

Traditionalists do not like the modern world, we find much to disagree with. One of those is the place of women within modern society. Our society wants women to either be equal with men or to replace men, like much Feminist thought it wants to keep it's options open. We want men and women to be partners with each having their own sphere in which to operate without competing against the other.

I want you to do a thought experiment, think of two societies, each with the same people and economy. In one every single job is carried out by women and not a single man has a job. Now I want  you to think of the second society, in this one all jobs are carried out by men and not a single women has a job. Now both societies are extreme but only one of these societies could work. Which one?

The second society, the one where only men worked because in this society there would be a place for both men and women. But in the first society there is no place for men. Women are attracted, at least in part, by a mans successes, money, position and status. A world in which men have none of these is a world in which there is no place for men or women for that matter.

Liberalism insists that men and women are interchangeable and we know that not to be true. In a Traditionalist society men and women must have their own distinct place, their own distinct roles.

It was once said that 'a womens work is never done', that women were always busy. Ironically this is now as true as it ever was, but we no longer hear this said. Much of today's busyness is spend in transit and not in actually doing the work, whatever that happens to be. When women worked at home, because that is what a Housewife does, she could priorities work instead of needing to run around like a headless chicken. But women still want to be needed and they want to be busy. They want a life plan that gives them all of the things that women have always wanted. A husband, children and a respected place within their community.

Instead of men and women competing against each other and each finding fault with the other. We need to restore the natural attractiveness that each sex feels for the other. To encourage that natural attractiveness unlike Liberalism which seeks at each turn to destroy it. To that end this is the path that women should have in a Traditionalist society.

1. Marriage and children

2. Volunteerism

3. Education and jobs

Before the age of 25 most women should have married and have had a child. These things should happen when they are at their most beautiful, at their least cynical and when they are at their most healthy, with the most energy. That is the time to fall in love and to spread that love to their children. Not when life has made them hard and less attractive, but when life is in full bloom.

A women might need a job before she marries, this article has some great ideas for women of a Traditionalist bent.
Early career ideas for future homemakers

So what should a women do if she finds herself with time on her hands?

She should volunteer within her community to help those who need help. The elderly who need company and jobs done for them. The young who need look after or a helping hand. The sick and those unable to look after themselves. This is the proper way for women to contribute to their community while still looking after their husband and children.

When her children are able to look after themselves some women may want to gain an official qualification or work. This is when that should take place, after she has children, not before. Before becomes a way to stop women from having relationships and children. We want her to have both, a job or qualification is optional. A social worker who is a wife and mother would be better than one who has real experience with neither.

Work within the home is something that greatly aids society and helps create strong and durable families. Today it is undervalued, in a Traditionalist society it would be put back into it's rightful place.

The Revolution Is Always About Destruction

Earlier today I was on YouTube and I saw a clip entitled "Star Trek Picard Disaster | CBS Admits It Wanted Picard Humbled" by Overlord DVD.

Star Trek Picard was a show designed to humble and humiliate its hero, CBS admits on the official Star Trek website. They deliberately turned Admiral Picard into a sad joke in order to call him out for male privilege. Now they’re trying to sell another Trek show to fans and investors? Can a franchise succeed by deliberately destroying its own heroes?
This is exactly the same question Star Wars and comic fans have been asking themselves!

So why do they take these classics and destroy them?

Why do they seem to love destroying them?

The first thing to remember is that the people who currently control these things didn't create them. They are destroying someone else's work. Often they were the creative idea of one man, Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas, Stan Lee for example. Some of their ideas were good and others bad but it wasn't created by a committee. Many of these are now controlled by committees. Groups of people with no love or passion for someone else's creation. Often hired because of who they are and what they believe rather then because of any talent.

So why do the companies put up with this, even when it loses them money?

Because the people who run the companies also didn't create them. They are committeemen who are loyal to the committee. In other words they like to support other peoples opinions, everyone thinks along the same lines and everyone supports the same things. Groupthink. What they are not loyal to is the company, nor to the companies investors, nor to the customers. They don't care if the company fails, it's not their money, it's the investors money and they are not loyal to the investors.

You may say but thats insane, surely they get paid by the company, surely their financial future depends on the company turning a profit?

No!

The executives will get paid whether the company turns a profit or not. Often they will be paid more if things turn bad because they need to be "incentivized" to turn things around. These profitable companies that have been built up over many decades are being turned into pyramid schemes. In fact that is what is happening to the entire economy. Those at the top are looting everything because that is all they know. They are not creators, they are not builders, they are destroyers.

They are also Ideologues, people who believe what they believe to the exclusion of common sense or facts. Their beliefs ARE facts to them and today they are in charge. In government, in education, in the churches, in companies and of course in entertainment. They really believe that White people are privileged, that everyone is exactly the same, that men can be women. As the Queen said in Alice in Wonderland

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Thats just the kind of people they are. The most important thing in the world to them is what they believe, not what is good. What they believe, whether they understand it or not, is that the issue is never the issue, the issue is always the Revolution and the purpose of the Revolution is the destruction of Western Civilization. Thats why they love to destroy the things that you love. Destroying is the entire purpose of what they do, it's not about creating, it's not about creating a legacy and it's not about money. They hate you because of who you are not because of what you've done. Although they do hate you for what your ancestors did. They created a Civilization and they hate that Civilization. They hate that it isn't the world that they want and to create the world that they want they need to destroy the one that currently exists.

The only way for us to win is for them to lose!

Everything Old Is New Again

Back in the middle 1980's I was a teenager and I used to watch the ABC and SBS, they had good documentaries and panel shows. I learnt a lot and not all of it was what they wanted me to learn.

Both channels were intellectual and Liberal, of course they hated the Liberal Party but they tried not to be. However they failed a lot. They also hated President Reagan and I learnt a lot from that hatred as well.

I wondered why they were so disrespectful of President Reagan, he was constantly referred to as Ronny Raygun. A cowboy warmonger who couldn't wait to unleash nuclear war upon us all. But I couldn't work out why they would say such things, I mean if he really was that dangerous wouldn't he already have started the war?

What I learnt was that the media hates anything to the right, no matter how extreme or mild. I also learnt that TV was a bad place to find out about America. Americans were gun nuts and fundamentalists who hated blacks and what was sad was that they really believed their own propaganda. They expected you to believe it as well.

I also noticed that they hated the past and that the future was a place that they already seemed to know. When that future was threatened or didn't seem to be happening then it sent them into a panic. The past was a place filled with prejudice, often theirs. World War II was begrudgingly talked about, so was the Cold War, but World War I was ancient history and it was treated that way. But actual Ancient History was never shown or discussed. When it comes to history it is one thing that is much better now then back then.

On the panel shows they would discuss ideas that they wanted to hightlight, although they were much more evenhanded then today. If they brought a controversial person on they actually let them talk. Sometimes they even left it up to the audience to make up their own mind. But that didn't mean they didn't propagandize, of course they did. One thing I remember very clearly was that "there are no more Conservatives being born!", or "there are no more Royalists being born". As I said they were more certain of the future than of the past. They were absolutely certain that what they were saying was true. Everyone was becoming a Liberal and everything traditional was going the way of the dodo.

One thing that they talked about was the changing sex roles, unlike today they were not cheerleaders, no they were quite apprehensive of the changes. But they did not oppose them as they saw them as inevitable and therefore it was immoral to oppose them. Those who did they always cast as old fashioned and out of date. They said that those who opposed the sexual revolution were scared of womens sexuality.

Now we are all on the other side of this, we can see that the brave new world that they promised has failed. Individually and as a Civilization we have passed through the eye of the needle. They had the chance to prove us wrong and they haven't. Instead we have gone back to learn about the future, about how to shape and how to survive in the future. We know that the society that they promised has great costs that they could and did ignore. We know that the reason boundaries existed was because we need boundaries. They will continue on their mad race to destroy the boundaries that we all need, but they don't care. They continue to believe the same old lies that they have always believed. And we are renewed, now knowing that the things that they rejected are exactly the things that we need to preserve or to rebuild.

Everything old is new again!
