Nationalism is a well-defined concept that means one nation is comprised of
a single racial-ethnic group, culture, language, customs, heritage, values, etc. All these forces are in unity, compared to the modern idea of disunity, which results in constant internal power struggles.
The Nazis were National Socialists, which meant existing Social Democratic ideals adjusted to a Nationalist context. The problem was that they then took this too far. Instead of creating a healthy cultural transition, they created a dogma that was self-perpetuating, like communism. It drove people past an appreciation of reality to an insane quest. The war was insane because it could not be won as it was created, and that should have been obvious to everyone. It was more of a temper tantrum than anything else.
Further, I think the Holocaust does discredit Nazism a great deal. Relocation to North Africa was possible; even more, using people who hate you to make your own munitions is a stupid idea, as is shown by the high failure rate of German munitions during the war. The only upside of the Holocaust was that it strengthened world Jewry by cutting out the low-hanging fruit in Eastern Europe while promoting the more prosperous, educated and intelligent German Jews.
Israel today is seeing the situation Hitler was in. What do you do with the Palestinians? Relocate. It's the only answer. The world will hate it, but if you do it quickly, it will be forgotten. If you shovel them into ovens, people freak out because of the sheer terror of that situation. I respect how some sheer terror is cosmically necessary, but unnecessary acts are still pointless. Do not fixate on the Other or it eats you up. Relocate.
Which brings me to modern-day "neo-Nazi" and "white nationalist" movements. These are not national socialism; they are Racial Marxist
movements that encourage a binary view of the world (white is right, everything else is STOMP AND KILL). They remove quality-control limits on white people, which is a terrible idea, as we've now got too many idiots, liars, cheats, rapists, scumbags, shitheads and fools that we need to weed out. Also, these movements are defensive and passive. In their view, the Jew and African (who are morally bad) somehow control the world, and so all that we can hope for is jobs flipping burgers while we prepare for the ultimate race war (which we will not win). It's brain-breakingly stupid which is why ALMOST ALL of the people in these movements come from broken homes and broken lives, many if not all are alcohol and drug abusers, and they listen to angry pointless two-note music (outside of Absurd and Skrewdriver, there's not much of musical note going on within these circles). Neo-Nazism brings death to whatever it touches because it's a self-hating, self-destructive, hopeless movement. Avoid it like the plague.
Liberalism is the same way, just more insidious and less extreme. (Which cancer would you prefer: one that shows up while it's still stage 1, and so you can remove it, or one that is silent until it's stage 5 and there's nothing to do but dig your ass a grave?)
From my experience, there is one world and one truth that can be logically derived from it. This is the product of nihilism; we strip away all the anthro-centric bias and look at life as it is. There is no inherent truth, and indeed there is no truth that exists; there is only the world, and the order that emerges from it, and the truths we can use to summarize that order. From this, we gain an understanding of time, from that we get cause-effect logic, and from that we get a sense of immense realism.
As a realist, I can never support liberalism, leftism, anarchism, socialism, communism, progressivism or even social goodwill -- these are the same thing, which is a placing of the herd-as-individuals above the individual. I prefer a collective, cooperative goal as expressed in culture.
I will never endorse racism or race-hatred. It's pointless and distracting. It is not activism. It is indulging frustration. Again, nothing but hatred arises from it. Interestingly, this applies equally to ANTIFA and other "anti-racist" groups, who are basically bigots who want an object to beat on that is not protected by social rules. Then again, they're leftists -- see comments above.
Nationalism (self-rule by ethnic-cultural group) is a traditional value of all conservatives. It is also a superior system for human civilization. Each group has its own rules and should keep them. Mass immigration creates overpopulation.
Equality, which is a scheme by the less-equal to take from the more-equal, inevitably and always results in a reversal of natural selection and a less-competent society. You can see the results today. 1940s America was relatively crime-free, intelligent, orderly and genteel. Now we live in a crass dystopia. What intervened? A gradual process of liberalization.
Our solution to these problems is not political dogma but undertaking a cultural revolt and revolt in values. It's already happening. Nationalism is rising world wide, as is conservatism (although I prefer the term rightist, as in morally right and right to power). The liberal nightmare of 1789-2009 is showing its true colors, which are dystopia and internal conflict, and now the pendulum is swinging the other way.
I would prefer that way not to go to Nazism, but a traditional society which brings religion in line with science, science in line with philosophy, enslaves government to culture, removes liars and scumbags, gently repatriates the non-indigenous, and creates the kind of society we see mentioned in the Deep Ecology mission statement:
We believe that true ecological sustainability may require a rethinking of our values as a society. Present assumptions about economics, development, and the place of human beings in the natural order must be reevaluated. If we are to achieve ecological sustainability, Nature can no longer be viewed only as a commodity; it must be seen as a partner and model in all human enterprise.
We begin with the premise that life on Earth has entered its most precarious phase in history. We speak of threats not only to human life, but to the lives of all species of plants and animals, as well as the health and continued viability of the biosphere. It is the awareness of the present condition that primarily motivates our activities.
We believe that current problems are largely rooted in the following circumstances:
The loss of traditional knowledge, values, and ethics of behavior that celebrate the intrinsic value and sacredness of the natural world and that give the preservation of Nature prime importance. Correspondingly, the assumption of human superiority to other life forms, as if we were granted royalty status over Nature; the idea that Nature is mainly here to serve human will and purpose.
The prevailing economic and development paradigms of the modern world, which place primary importance on the values of the market, not on Nature. The conversion of nature to commodity form, the emphasis upon economic growth as a panacea, the industrialization of all activity, from forestry to farming to fishing, even to education and culture; the drive to economic globalization, cultural homogenization, commodity accumulation, urbanization, and human alienation. All of these are fundamentally incompatible with ecological or biological sustainability on a finite Earth.
Technology worship and an unlimited faith in the virtues of science; the modern paradigm that technological development is inevitable, invariably good, and to be equated with progress and human destiny. From this, we are left dangerously uncritical, blind to profound problems that technology and science have wrought, and in a state of passivity that confounds democracy.
Overpopulation, in both the overdeveloped and the underdeveloped worlds, placing unsustainable burdens upon biodiversity and the human condition.
As our name suggests, we are influenced by the Deep Ecology Platform, which helps guide and inform our work. We believe that values other than market values must be recognized and given importance, and that Nature provides the ultimate measure by which to judge human endeavors.
If you have further questions, please post them here and maybe we should execute an interview for another political blog. I apologize for taking up the time on this metal blog.
It's worth mentioning also that everything Burzum has released since "Hlidskjalf" has been a mistake.
