Nation Revisited # 124 February 2017

Climate Change
Factory chimneys belching smoke used to be a sign of prosperity. We never worried about pollution is those days because we were glad to have jobs to go to. Today, it's very different. We still make cars and pharmaceuticals but heavy industry is only a small part of our economy and financial services are our biggest export. Nevertheless, employment is at record levels.
President Donald J Trump thinks that climate change is a trick by the Chinese but the rest of us are convinced by the evidence. We know from tree ring data and core samples that the climate has changed over the centuries. We have suffered several Ice Ages that have left their mark on the landscape. How much industrial activity effects climate change is a matter of speculation but it must play a part.
Environmental causes have been taken up by left wingers but the green movement was pioneered in Britain by BUF writers such as Jorian Jenks and Henry Williamson.

Those of us who lived through the smogs of the fifties know how dangerous they were. Thousands of people died of respiratory problems until the Clean Air Act was passed in 1956. The air in London became breathable when coal fires were banned, thus proving that we can control our environment with sensible legislation.
The pollution generated by industry may not be melting the polar icecaps but it's definitely contaminating our environment. Science may eventually find a way to use fossil fuels safely but at present all we can do limit the damage. 
The answer surely lies in solar power. The Sun powers everything in nature and we already know how to harness it. The big oil companies know that they have to change and they are already investing in solar technology. The challenge is to generate and store electricity without destroying our planet.
We survived in prehistory by learning to hunt animals and live in caves. Later we discovered farming and developed societies. Now, we are advancing beyond the industrial era into the age of artificial intelligence. Science has always found a way.

Blogs and Newsletters

I published a newsletter called Nation from 1973 to 1975. At that time there were two very different patriotic movements campaigning against uncontrolled immigration; Union
Movement which stood for 'Europe a Nation' and the National Front that was bitterly opposed to European union. I thought then, as I do now, that Third World immigration was the biggest threat to Britain; in or out of  Europe. 

Nation was a small scale newsletter typed on an old manual typewriter and reproduced in a photo-copy shop. In those days the written word was all we had apart from street corner meetings. I used to distribute Nation from the Bladebone pub in Bethnal Green. It was mostly my own work but several friends contributed articles including Terry Savage, Bill Whitbread of Tru-Aim, and Roy Chester in South Africa.

An article by Bill Barnes, writing under his nom de plume ‘Athelstan’, was included in John Bean’s political memoir Many Shades of Black. It was entitled From Camelot to Ridley Road and it questioned the value of marches and demonstrations.

In 1975 I accepted Jeffrey Hamm's offer to write for Action, the journal of Union Movement. The last issue of Action 
appeared in November 1992, just as the Internet was about to transform publishing. Unfortunately this technology
came too late for Robert Row and Jeffrey Hamm who had worked so hard to produce the paper.

In 2005 I started an email bulletin along the same lines as Nation - which is why it's called Nation Revisited. In 2012, Rufus, of News from Atlantis, helped me to turn it into an online blog. I do not share Rufus' conspiratorial worldview but I will always be grateful for his help.

In 2014 I brought out European Outlook in support of the Remain campaign. Unfortunately, the referendum was won by the Brexiteers with the help of the mass-circulation tabloids. The cause of European unity has suffered a setback but it's early days yet and we are still tied to Europe by blood and culture.

Those of us with something to say should be heard. Our efforts are bound to be dwarfed by the mainstream media but we can still try to inform and educate the public. The little parties of the far-right want to deport millions of people, dynamite the Stock Exchange and hang all the bankers. 
Nation Revisited is not so ambitious but we support good government, social justice, and European solidarity. 

Bigotry and Racism - Beyond the Cliches
by Rabbi Mayer Schiller - http://thirdway.info

To hate a human being because of his race, religion or nationality is a horrible thing. The history of all mankind is marred by the outbreak of unspeakable violence against people perpetrated, not because of anything they did, but merely because of who they were. Bigotry is a vile thing, its prejudgment of a man in direct violation of Judeo-Christian morality as well as the norms of Western Civilization.
Yet, it is also clear that so much of what makes life worth living is to be found in group identity. We are who we are not only as individuals, but also as members of larger entities, i.e. families, neighborhoods, towns, nations, races, religions and civilizations. No man is born into a total vacuum of identity. We are the products of genetic, familial and cultural forces. In the end meaning is provided solely by these extra forces which provide our perceptions and action with conceptual or at least visceral coherence.

Whether these extra personal loyalties be of a metaphysical nature deriving their essence from an essentially spiritual (God centered universe) or be they merely an inherent part of the rational world is a question beyond the confines of this brief essay. What is relevant for our purpose is that man needs identity, meaning and purpose and becomes confused and demoralized without them.

Accordingly it is one of the moral imperatives of our era to articulate a philosophy and seek to implement a policy which will allow men to realize themselves in a group without falling prey to hating or harming other groups. This is far from an easy task. Indeed, there are those who would maintain that the enmity which often goes hand-in-hand with group identification is inevitable and it is best to pursue policies which will inexorably weaken those loyalties. It is an alluring position and one to which the "respectable" media and politicians of our era are all pledged.

It is, an illusory, immoral and unnatural agenda, however. Illusory, for history's testimony is that widely diverse people cannot and will not live peacefully together. Immoral, because its ultimate results will be the end of the truths and virtues of the world's various faiths, races and nations. Unnatural, because group identity is a fundamental need of all men.

The way out of our current impasse on matters of race, ethnicity, etc. would seem not to lie in the direction of totalitarian coercive mixing, but towards voluntary disentanglement by men of good intentions.

All any man really desires is a sense of physical security, some orientation towards a life of meaning, a community whose ways are familiar and pleasant to him and a place to call his (and his peoples') own.

Sadly, today all the above is granted certain groupings but not others. Europeans, White people and those attached to traditional faiths and lifestyles of the West are told by the powers-that-be that they alone among mankind's tribes are forbidden to have or even articulate a collective identity.
Perhaps this is due to their having overstepped the proper boundaries in the past, or alternatively to their own current weakness and gullibility. Whatever the reason none can deny the current threat to Western Man. Other peoples define themselves as groups, only European Man is forbidden to do this.

A solution to our crisis will be found to the degree that all of the world's assorted tribes can say to each other: "You have your way of life and your place to live. We wish you well. Now let each of us live among our own. We bear you no ill will."

It is in the spirit of separation founded on mutual respect that I have attempted on a personal level over the past decade to communicate with nationalists (White and Black), to patriots of many nations and to committed members of many faiths. My goal has been to strip group identity of hatred and the responses I have received have been almost uniformly encouraging. I have found that when you face a man and say; "Your people are a people with a unique identity. They have a right (perhaps an obligation) to survive as a people. Yet you must realize there are other peoples in the world who have similar yearnings. How can we work this out?" - that most men are willing to act in a positive fashion.

To sum up, groups should speak to each other as groups (away from media terror and self-seeking politicians). Far more important than speaking, though, is listening. To hear the other as we remain ourselves is our contemporary task.

Sorting Fact from Propaganda - Ian Buckley
This article was posted on the BPP website in 2005

We can all be fooled at times, and I was recently fooled by a film called Enemy at the Gates. This covered the epic battle-within-a-battle when Soviet sniper Vasilly Zaitsev fought German Colonel Thorwald at Stalingrad. I had believed that this scenario was true, since the story is recited as history in several books.

But the masterful Stalingrad the Fateful Siege: 1942-1943, by Anthony Beevor, dismisses the whole thing as a Soviet propaganda tale:-

'The telescopic sight of his prey's rifle, allegedly Zaitsev's most treasured trophy, is still exhibited in the Moscow armed forces museum, but this dramatic story remains essentially unconvincing. It is worth noting that there is absolutely no mention of it in any reports.'

The history of the Second World War is littered with numerous examples like that. The outright lies shade into half-truths and distortions, such as the so-called 'Malmedy Massacre', which incidentally could and frequently did happen on the allied side, a process that continues to this very day in the military operations of Bush 'n Blair's various NWO wars.

This is not to suggest that the German soldiery were saints, merely that they were better than some and no worse than many others.

If we fast-forward through the decades, how are those who fell for the stories and the half-truths of World War II fared?

Well, our government typically seeks to crow over some statistics which seem to indicate that Britain is starting to move up from the very bottom of the European poverty league. Big Deal!

If the aged veteran should want the council to repair his leaky roof, he'd better be prepared to wait until every last asylum-seeker has had his dwelling done up to scratch, in accordance with those many secret government directives! Is this the future that our war veterans fought for, and was John Amery not right when he wrote that: "Win or loose, every door reads 'RIP Britannia' "?

In spite of being plastered by dozens of B52s, Baghdad still looks to be in a better state than most of our own towns, wrecked as they are either by glass and concrete in prosperous areas or by dereliction and decrepitude in poorer ones.

You know, just when we think that we have the measure of this Government's utter contemptibility, they seem to sink a little lower, as if - as it were - to wallow around more in their own sleazy evilness.

Now we have wasted around £3 billion (perhaps far more) on a war against Iraq, that was staged in the pursuance of no possible British interest, economies are required. From now on it's farewell to pension books. Instead pensioners have been issued with swipe cards and PIN numbers. 

Arthritic fingers will have to get the hang of fiddling with mini-terminals. Obviously, this will mean more hassle and longer queues for our pensioners. Inflicting inconvenience and misery on the aged will help save a mere £35 million for future wars for Zion, and Uncle Sam (sadly, now almost indistinguishable).

Additionally, the prospects of their grandchildren enjoying the dubious privilege of being stuck in a cubicle all day answering telephone calls seem increasingly slim given the ongoing export - at a mind-numbing rate of loss - of call  centre jobs to India.

Surely, no nation can supress the truth and hope to prosper? We are assailed from all sides with calls to tackle the 'drugs menace', and informed that we are in the midst of a 'war on drugs'. But how can we tackle a problem like this when the facts about the drugs trade are kept from the public?

To discuss the realities behind heroin, cocaine and especially ecstasy, is like treading on a mine field in the present atmosphere of political correctness. In the days when sanity still prevailed in this country - during the middle to late 1950s - Robert Fabian of Scotland Yard wrote a couple of books detailing his experiences.

Fabian was very forthright in saying that most organised and persistent crime was the responsibility of foreign elements in this country. This was not to stigmatise any particular nationality, since the natives of many different countries were involved, but merely to point out the facts as they prevailed at that time. But these days Inspector Fabian would be behind bars on 'hate crime' charges, while the asylum-seeker he arrested would be claiming massive compensation at the High Court!

A fair number of readers will be already familiar with what happens every year to several thousand gullible and native Russian and Ukrainian women. Such girls, who are often well-educated but lack opportunities in their own homelands, are enticed to Israel by adverts which promise well-paid jobs as office workers, hotel receptionists and the like.

But once they arrive, these unfortunate women find themselves trapped inside a hellish world of forced prostitution and sex-slavery. Even this statement conveys something milder than the horrifying actuality, since according to The Jerusalem Post of November 12th, during these Slav girls' trek to their destination:-

'Women who complain of any kind of pain during the taxing march across the desert are drugged with medication and painkillers, and anyone who breaks down and collapses is abandoned on the roadside in the desert, as if she were a dying freight animal.'

The author of the article, Isaac Herzog, is a member of the Israeli parliament, and to his credit he called for an end to this evil trade, suggesting that: "Too bad those traffickers cannot be hanged, but long years in solitary confinement would be an adequate alternative."

How utterly despicable it is that the 'mainstream' media makes disappointing noises about Arab women in far-away countries being allegedly forced to wear veils, while ignoring the torments inflicted on these poor duped Russian and Ukrainian females in Israel. Surely, if forced to the choice, all women would plump for a scarf over the head rather than suffer the fate of being auctioned off like Roman slaves and stuck in filthy cages - which may sound like hyperbole but actually happens in some cases.

Alas, the man on the London bus does not read The Jerusalem Post, and is thus an easy target for the merchants of managed, pseudo-news with their childish and inaccurate cast of 'goodies' and 'baddies'. The slave trade in Eastern European women, like the Lavon affair or the Mossad transmitter in Tripoli that led to the Reagan/Thatcher bombing raids in Lybia, remains unknown to 99 percent of the people, and both the broadcasters and the governing elite would like to keep it that way.

Indeed, if a person had any capacity for independent thought  or a backbone of any sort, they would never find themselves in the position of making Newsnight commentaries or writing Observer editorials. Those kinds of people know all the accepted parameters of received opinion. They are adept at providing slanted coverage, basically state propaganda and censorship masquerading as public service broadcasting.

But recently, it seems that the boundaries of 'left' and 'right' have begun to change. Increasingly, it is everyone else against the media, the politicians and the plutocrats. Could it be the beginning of the British peasants' revolt? If so , it is long overdue!

Nation Revisited # 123 January 2017

Almost Forgotten Genius: Rider Haggard by Ian Buckley
Originally published in Spearhead - spearhead.co.uk

Though a vastly popular writer at one time, Henry Rider Haggard is now more or less ignored. Even King Solomon's Mines, Allan Quatermain and She have almost disappeared from the bookshops and libraries, to say nothing of the writer's forty odd other books, most of which have been out of print for decades.

This neglect of Haggard is no accident, but rather reflects a considered policy of the poisonous cult of political correctness. His stories always celebrate the virtues of honour, nobility, loyalty and courage, and so are at odds with the shabby modern world, whose only real God is money. Rider Haggard saw the beginnings of this distasteful trend and, as he says towards the end of Allan Quatermain (1887):

"Well it is not a good world - nobody can say that it is, save those who wilfully blind themselves to facts. How can a world be good in which Money  is the moving power, and self-interest the guiding star? The wonder is not that it is so bad, but there should be any good left in it."

Or again, in Allan Quatermain, we find the following pithy and wise comment:

"For instance the law of England is much more severe upon offences against property than against the person, as becomes a people whose ruling passion is money. A man may half-kick his wife to death or inflict horrible sufferings upon his children at a much cheaper rate of punishment than he can compound for the theft of a pair of old boots."

Surely in his own sub-creational world, the dashing Allan Quatermain has more reality about him than does the ludicrous figure of the Prime Deciever, Mr Tony Blair!

Henry Rider Haggard was born in 1856 at West Bradenham, Norfolk, the son of the local squire. The youngest of eight children, he was a slow developer and was originally viewed as the family dunce. Today, ambitious young people face continually diminishing horizons, but fortunately for Haggard there were many opportunities then available in Africa.

Like his close friend, Rudyard Kipling, Rider Haggard played an active part in building the British Empire. As private secretary to Commissioner Shepstone, he was one of the party that annexes the Transvaal in 1887. Again like Kipling, he was a keen defender of British imperial expansion, but also had some sympathy to spare for those displaced by the process. For, in the final analysis was it the British Empire that advanced into the Zulu homeland... or the Rothschild Empire, seeking gold and diamonds and - more important - the raw power that these precious commodities represented?

Another reason for Haggard's present-day unpopularity can be found in his Private Diaries published in 1980. These diaries reveal him to be an unabashed conspiracy theorist. Those who hold up their hands in horror at this should reflect that Rider Haggard only came to these particular views after long and careful reflexion, just as was the case with another famous author and administrator, John Buchan. Are such men, with wide experience of the world of public service, likely to have been completely wrong? My own view is that, in matters of great national  and international importance, there should never be any forbidden areas of discussion. If any taboo subjects exist, then logically one should become more suspicious on encountering them, while always taking care not to descend into gibbering paranoia.

In any case, Rider Haggard's opinions on what happened in South Africa towards the end of the nineteenth century have now been mostly confirmed by a mainstream book, The Randlords, by Geoffrey Wheatcroft.

Haggard's first major literary success, King Solomon's Mines, was written as the result of a bet that he made that he could produce an adventure story as good as Stevenson's Treasure Island. As with most of Haggard's later books, King Solomon's Mines is a blend of carefully observed realism and wild flights of imagination.

Haggard's interest in the esoteric and supernatural came to the fore in She, a story of the undying Ayesha, ruler of the lost kingdom of Kor. She, with its blend of mysticism and carefully sketched archeological background, was appreciated by no lesser figure than Carl Jung. Rider Haggard's She can be understood and appreciated on many different levels - as is the true mark of a great writer. The following quote illustrates this:

"The religions come and the religions pass, and the civilisations come and pass, and naught endures but the world and human nature. Ah! If man would but see that hope is from within and not from without - that he himself must work out his own salvation."

The rest of Haggard's many books cover so many different genres - historical fiction, fantasy and adventure, for instance - that it is quite difficult to single out specific works. A good introduction to his historical fiction would be The Wanderer's Necklace, which tells the tale of the Norseman Olaf, who became captain of the Varangian guard at Constantinople:

"Instantly from three hundred throats, above the sound of running feet that drew ever nearer, came the answering shout of "Valhalla, Valhalla! Victory or Valhalla!" Then out of the gloom up dashed the Northmen."

Eric Brighteyes, written some 25 years before The Wanderer's Necklace, also explores the ancient Northern world, and is perhaps the best modern work written in the form of an Icelandic saga.

"When Eric left her, Gudruda drew yet nearer to the edge of the mighty falls, and seated herself on the very brink. Her breast was full of joy, and there she sat let the splendour of the night and the greatness of the rushing sounds sink into her heart. Yonder shore the setting sun, poised, as it were, on Westman's distant peaks, and here sped the waters, and by that path Eric had come back to her."

The twenty odd books ans short stories devoted to the exploits of Allan Quatermain are also worthy of attention. Though some might (wrongly) view these adventure stories as juvenile, they are at the very least a welcome antidote to the electronic cesspit of television.

After his return from Africa, Haggard became an expert on the land, agriculture and rural poverty. His non-fiction books such as The Land and the Poor and A Farmer's Year based on extensive research and travelling, deal with problems such as rural depopulation. Haggard was one of the few men of influence who expressed sympathy and concern for the rural poor, a fact which should not be forgotten. It was for this work that Rider Haggard was knighted in 1912. His autobiography, The Days of My Life, published in 1926, just after his death.

Complete editions of most of Rider Haggard's books can be found online - including some hard-to-find out-of-print works - at http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/ and http://www.blackmask.com/

Economic Reasons

Coal was not phased out in Britain because of concerns about pollution and global warming. Those issues were
discussed at the time but the real reason was that coal miners were the highest paid industrial workers in the country and gas was cheap and plentiful.

We were taught that the British Empire abolished slavery in 1833 out of Christian charity. But the white working class worked for such low wages that they were actually cheaper to employ than slaves that had to be shipped from Africa and fed. Mechanisation and poverty were the real liberators.

When Idi Amin expelled the Uganda Asians in 1972 prime minister Ted Heath was reluctant to accept them as refugees, until he realised that they included doctors, dentists opticians, and accountants. We were desperately short of professional people at the time and the Uganda Asians helped to fill job vacancies. His actions have been lauded by liberals and condemned by conservatives but they were simply expedient.

Margaret Thatcher was critical of the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 but she was originally a pro-European. As a shopkeeper's daughter she knew the value of money. Our
affinity to Europe is based on blood and culture but it has always been dictated by economics. We are an offshore island separated from half a billion people by 30km of sea. Isolation does not make sense.

A National Revolution

Those of us who believe in European unity but are opposed to Third World immigration and unrestrained capitalism are effectively disenfranchised. The Labour Party is weak and divided. The Conservatives are dominated by right wing reactionaries like Boris Johnson and Liam Fox. The Liberal Democrats are sound on Europe but weak on almost everything else. The Greens want to save the planet but they are not interested in European civilisation. Ukip are petty nationalists and so are the little parties of the far-right.

We are still suffering from the global financial crisis of 2008. Unless we find a way to revive the economy our insurance companies and pension funds will not be able cope with near zero interest rates and the government will not be able to sell bonds. We are a low wage economy with a desperate housing shortage and a failing National Health Service. The British public have reacted to austerity by voting to quit the EU but that will only make things worse.

The world has largely benefited from global capitalism. Nearly everything is cheaper and people have been able to work and study wherever they want to. But the downside is that manufacturing industry has declined in Europe and North America to the point where people are not earning enough money to afford the cheap goods available.

This crisis of capitalism will eventually lead to the breakdown of the global system predicted by Oswald Mosley. When the lights go out, the supermarket shelves are empty, and our credit cards stop working, even the well-behaved British will be driven to revolution. Several times we have come close to economic collapse. In 1944 it was the Bretton Woods Agreement that saved us from bankruptcy, in 1976 it was an emergency loan from the IMF, and in 2008 we lent ourselves the money by Quantitative Easing; a practice made respectable by the Japanese. But our national luck will not last forever and when it runs out anything will be possible.

Harold Soref

Last month marked one hundred years since the birth of Harold Soref. He was born in Hampstead on December 18 1916 and died in London in 1993.

Most Jews of his generation supported the Labour Party but he was proud to be British and acted as a standard bearer at Oswald Mosley's great BUF rally at Olympia in 1934.

He was educated at St Pauls' School, Hammersmith and at Queen's College, Oxford. His father had been a pioneer in Rhodesia and the young Harold specialised in colonial studies. In 1937 he was sent to the All-British African Congress in Bulawayo to set up the African Defence Federation.

He served in the Royal Scots' Regiment and the Intelligence Corps during WW2 and worked as a freelance journalist until elected as Conservative MP for Ormskirk in 1970. He lost his seat in 1974 to Robert Kilroy-Silk of the Labour Party.

He was a founder member of the Anglo-Rhodesia Society, a prominent member of the Monday Club and a fearless defender of South Africa. He was frequently attacked by left wing thugs but he campaigned tirelessly against terrorism, pornography and declining standards. In 1965 he wrote The Puppeteers, with Ian Greig, which exposed the organisations and individuals behind the anti-South African campaign. In 1964 the Williamses, a coloured (mixed race) family from Capetown, were brought to England by Christian Action. The Guardian reported that they had suffered no persecution and that apartheid was not the reason for their leaving. But the usual suspects made themselves busy: "Mrs Judith Hart, the Labour MP for Lanark and Vice Chairman of the Movement for Colonial Freedom, raised the matter in the House of Commons and later led a deputation to see Selwyn Lloyd."   

Albert Friedlander wrote in The Independent: "There was a total consistency in all that he did and, while he did listen to others, he rarely changed his point of view. He was clear, lucid, bitter, and out of step with the world."

The Israelis commemorate Righteous Gentiles that have served their cause. If we had a similar memorial to Righteous Jews that had served Britain Harold Soref would certainly
have an honoured place.

Racism and Nationalism

Racism originally meant a dislike of other races but it has come to include different nationalities. Hostility towards the Irish, Poles, and Romanians is regarded as racism and some people are so anti-American that they can only be described as racists.

All of the great religions proscribe racism and inciting racial hatred is illegal in most of the world. But despite a century of racial equality in Brazil the whites are still at the top of society, the blacks are in the middle and the Amerindians are at the bottom. Similar arrangements apply throughout Latin America.

The Hindu caste system is known as Varna by the Indians. The word caste is from the Portuguese "casta" which means "race." Discrimination has been illegal since independence but it still dominates Indian society, with the fair-skinned Brahmins at the top and the dark-skinned Dalits at the bottom. 

Race is intertwined with class and income. A rich black man in the USA is better off than a poor white man but he might still be the victim of discrimination. It is also mixed up with culture. The Pieds-Noirs in French Algeria were poor whites of Mediterranean stock but they were Europeans and the Algerians were Arabs. There was little racial difference between them but the cultural division was decisive. Over a million Pieds-Noirs fled to France after Algerian independence in 1962.

There was even less to distinguish Slavs from Germans but the Nazis thought that there was. Adolf Hitler was so convinced of the inferiority of the Russians that he refused to take the Red Army seriously until it stormed the gates of Berlin. His racial theories led him to believe that they would not be able to fight a modern war, and in pursuit of this nonsense he destroyed most of Europe.

Nationalism is not necessarily racial. America is a multi-racial country united by "American Exceptionalism," and civic nationalism is promoted by Ukip who are putting up non-white candidates and restricting their hate campaign to European immigrants. 

We have the technology to feed all the people in the world but we also have the power to destroy them. Pakistan, India, China, North Korea, and Israel have atomic weapons and Japan, South Korea, and Iran have nuclear programs. The United States has enough nuclear warheads to destroy the planet; the NATO countries, including Turkey, have access to nuclear weapons, and Britain and France have their own nuclear arsenals. With so much firepower at our disposal we should avoid sabre-rattling.

Overproduction and mass migration are the hallmarks of global capitalism. An equitable distribution of land and resources would require a new world order based on geopolitical self-sufficiency.

Ideas and Suggestions

John Bean writes: In your latest Nation Revisited you state that a conspiracy theory surrounds the Frankfurt School "that appeals to a deluded minority. But the majority of people put it in the same category as flying saucers of the Loch Ness Monster." I believe that such a comment belittles your knowledge (which normally I respect) and the reliability of your NR blog. Just look at some of the numerous pages on the Frankfurt School's history to the present day which appears on: A. Wikipedia, Frankfurt School of Social Theory and Philosophy. B. Marxist Internal Archive.

You will note that I do not recommend any of the so-called 'evidence' on this subject prepared by the anti-Jewish sector of the Far-Right. Although many of the followers past and present were/are Jewish, so were many of the intellectual followers of Marxism. Today, many, but not all, of such followers have been replaced by the 'uni-trained' sons and daughters of the bourgeoisie. In essence this is why some of us are concerned with the existing influence of the Frankfurt School of social theory thought


Michael Woodbridge writes: Thanks again for a jolly, thought provoking read. Without writing a blog myself I couldn't do justice to every point you made.

My fundamental reply to your theme is that the EU as an institution has long since ceased to serve the European interest because it has made economic interests paramount, whilst ignoring the cultural and especially the biological concerns of the European people.  It has thus aligned itself with our most vicious enemy, the cosmopolitan "liberal elite."

To restore Mosley's original vision of 'Europe a Nation' I believe you'll have to champion the racial factor of our people, united as blood relatives.

Nation Revisited # 122 December 2016

David Myatt

Last month we reported that David Myatt was dead but he's alive and to prove it he posted his latest poem The Leaves are Showering Down on his blog on November 5th. http://www.davidmyatt.info/

Whilst researching his premature obituary I came across the following piece from Nationalist Week.

David Myatt is well known to the editor of this bulletin who has had occasion to expel him in the past from a Leeds-based group because of his black magic rantings - we kid you not! Now he has written to Nick Griffin urging him to study Islam. Here is the beginning of his letter to Griffin which he signes Abdul-Aziz. An open letter to Nick Griffin of the BNP which ends with a Koranic quote and the following words:

"I know from my own experiences that Islam produces - has produced and can produce - honourable individuals and an honourable society: that it is a guide to living in a noble, civilized way...I invite you to accept Islam: to discover Islam, to learn about it. For surely, the honourable thing to do in this matter is for you to so learn, to gain some first-hand experience of Islam itself?"

The recent horrific deaths of the two Americans in Iraq, which were grotesque and sickening, shows how some of the tenets of militant Islam can be twisted. Islam is a religion, which can if viewed from a fundamentalist point be very dangerous indeed. Why have we reproduced this? Because it shows that although 99% of British Nationalists are for the most part pretty sound people - there are complete loonies like Myatt around. Avoid him and his kind like the plague. Eddie Morrison 2004.

The Danger of Dogma

One reason why Adolf Hitler lost the war was that he put his National Socialist ideology before military strategy. He never had a serious plan for the invasion of Britain because he was convinced that the Nordic blood of the British would stop us from going to war with Germany. He invaded Russia with three million men expecting the 'inferior' Slavs to flee before his conquering armies. And when the Americans entered the war he dismissed them as being half Negro and half Jewish. He took over a broken and demoralised nation and turned it into a world power but the fatal flaw of dogmatic racism
reduced Germany and most of Europe to ruins. 

After a famine in the fifties Mao Zedong ordered that every region of China should maintain stocks of rice to tide them over in times of shortage. He appointed inspectors to make it happen but in order to meet their targets they confiscated the harvest. The result was that people were starving when warehouses under armed guard were full of rice; another case of dogma gone wrong.

Margaret Thatcher's laissez faire policies were popular but 

they destroyed much of British industry and her easing of banking controls went too far. Surrounded, as she was, by  sycophants she became convinced of her own infallibility and having won her battles with General Galtieri and Arthur Scargill she decided to impose the Poll Tax; an unpopular and uncollectable tax that provoked the worst rioting in Britain since the eighteenth century and ultimately brought her down. She was the victim of her own dogma.

We are now approaching another disaster. The Tories are determined to break away from Europe in order to stop immigration. 
Unfortunately, the leaders of the European Union are just as dogmatic as our politicians and they are insisting on free movement of labour. Switzerland voted by referendum to limit immigration but they have been unable to close their borders because of the same EU directive. This impasse must be resolved.  

Adolf Hitler ignored his generals, Mao ignored his commissars, Maggie ignored her cabinet colleagues, and Theresa May will probably ignore the governor of the Bank of England and the leaders of trade and industry. It's not too late for her to change direction. As a Vicar's daughter she should remember the quotation from Jeremiah: “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.”

Bill Clinton was not dogmatic. When he was Governor of Arkansas he introduced a fuel tax to pay for the state’s roads. This was very unpopular and his political advisors told him that it would cost him the governorship. He immediately went on radio and television to admit that he had made a mistake. He abolished the tax and promised not to do it again. His constituents forgave him  and he never forgot the value of an apology. Years later he used the same tactic over the Monica Lewinski affair.

But Hillary was not so flexible. She clung to her liberal dogma and lost the presidential race to Donald Trump, a billionaire businessman who poses as a man of the people.

There's no time for debate: The EU must become a federal superstate right now

by Pinchas Goldshmidt Chief Rabbi of Moscow and president of the Conference of European Rabbis.

I am grateful to Martin Webster for drawing my attention to this article from The Daily Telegraph. The Rabbi is in favour of the European Union but many Jews see it as a nest of anti-Semitism. They include the late Jimmy Goldsmith, his son Zac, Melanie Phillips, and the media mogul Richard Desmond.

Among the terrorists who perpetrated the Brussels attacks were individuals known to the Turkish authorities and subject to an international warrant issued in France following the November attacks. Although it is impossible to know the details, we must question why this didn't alert the Belgian security services to this terrorist nest in their capital.

Clearly, Europe has in-built inefficiencies within its existing structure. The bureaucracy in Belgium, together with communication barriers, limit the Belgian government's ability to protect its citizens. Where some bilateral security cooperation agreements work smoothly (take USA/UK as an example), as soon as information whirls within European bureaucracy, it seems to lose direction and relevant authorities do not act.

Brussels, as the capital of Europe, is both a cause and the symptom of the systems that are in place across the continent. It many ways it can be considered a cause, as it was originally chosen as a neutral, non-competitive base for centralised Europe. The symptom of this is that the comfortable lifestyle and accessibility of the metropolis has led to slow-paced decision making. This has meant the European leadership and central services always appear a stride behind those who seek to undermine them. 

Europe is suddenly in the midst of the two biggest challenges of its recent history; terrorism and mass immigration. For it to remain successful, the European Union must reinvent itself and leverage its member states in at least three areas: security; immigration; and integration of refugees and crisis decision making.

But readers have to be realistic. We have learned from bitter experience that a "one size fits all" approach does not work. Europe today is structured around three distinct circles. The outer circle is comprised of the member states of the Council of Europe, which amounts to no more than an assembly of countries nominally ascribing to common principles and values, not unlike the UN.

The middle circle of Europe is defined by the countries which belong to the EU but did not join the eurozone, and have consequently kept their borders closed to the Schengen Area. Their commitment to a united Europe is limited and prone to reconsideration, as the referendum in the UK on June 23 proves.

The inner circle of Europe is defined by the eurozone and the Schengen Area. The countries are totally reliant on each other (particularly the relationship between France and Germany) and they must change to secure their future. They need to create an anti-terrorist task force which will be accountable to the European Commission and coordinate the war against Islamic terror. A similar task force will have to protect its outer borders and rein in the waves of millions of immigrants from the Middle East, Africa and Asia flooding Europe and threatening the future of the European continent. 

This inner circle will have to create both the effective leadership and decision making mechanisms which will transform it into a formidable force preserving the values of the European continent as we know them today.

Europe in 2016 can be likened to the 19th century United States of America, which lacked a central army and government, rendering it totally ineffective and vulnerable to the forces threatening its fledgling independence. Only the creation of a federal army and a unified, legitimate presidency in the Capital ensured the construction and development of the USA as we know it.

As the events of the past two years - the euro crisis in Greece, terrorism in France and Belgium, and the refugee crisis in Germany and its neighbouring countries - have shown, the inner circle of Europe is often pulled down by the weakest link in its membership. Allowing the inner circle nations to centralise their key systems means Europe can be more robust in the way it deals with crises.

If the status quo does not change radically then we are in real danger of allowing the EU to become a failed experiment, confined to the annuls of history. We simply cannot tolerate further examples of fellow members of the Schengen Area being ignored, without border control this leaves us all vulnerable.

There is no time for debate. The situation is urgent and this is the only way that the French and the German governments can step up their own security, the security of the smaller member states, and ultimately guarantee Europe's future.

What is Nationalism?

Most people in the UK associate 'nationalism' with the Scottish Nationalist Party, Plaid Cymru or Sinn Fein. They want independence for their respective regions but the British National Party, and its many rivals, stand for British nationalism. In 2009 the BNP boasted more than fifty
councillors, two MEPs and a member of the London Assembly. Recently, their last remaining councillor, Brian Parker of Pendle, temporarily resigned from the party following a misunderstanding about the party's finances. 

British nationalists embrace England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Some of them even accept Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans. They have extended their patriotism to include half the world but they object to European unity.

Nationalism can be based on nationality, race, language, or religion. Ukip are civic nationalists who regard anyone born in the UK as British; the Nazis were racial nationalists who only accepted ethnic Germans; Plaid Cymru are linguistic nationalists who seek Welsh independence; and the Israelis welcome immigrants from all over the world providing they consider themselves to be Jewish. In practice these qualifications are flexible and interchangeable but the idea of nationality persists.

Nationalists imagine a world divided into sovereign states
with their own flags and armies. But nation states, particularly ones with nationalistic governments, tend to attack each other to gain territorial or commercial advantage. Their proposed patchwork of petty states is exactly what produced the devastating conflicts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

In 1940 Winston Churchill proposed a union of Britain and France to defeat Germany. Both countries fought bravely but it was the United States; a union of 50 states, and the Soviet Union; a federation of 15 states that had the resources and manpower necessary to ensure victory. The era of little states has passed and it cannot be recalled by nostalgia.

Russia and Europe

Many people believe that the Russians relied on American tanks during World War Two. This is far from the truth. Armaments, including large numbers of Sherman M4 tanks were delivered to the USSR by Arctic Convoys but the Red Army’s main battle tank was the formidable T34. The German invasion overwhelmed Russia's defences and destroyed much of their industry but Joseph Stalin moved his factories hundreds of kilometres to the east, beyond the range of German guns, and Soviet workers achieved record levels of production. By 1945 they had produced over 50,000 T34s.

Anti-Soviet propaganda devised by Joseph Goebbels in Berlin and copied by the West during the Cold War is now being used against Putin’s Russia. They try to present Russia as a backward nation but such a nation couldn’t produce great composers like Khachaturian, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, and Tchaikovsky; writers like Pushkin, Gogol, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Turgenev, and Chekov; or scientists like Sergei Korolev who designed the rockets that are still putting men into space.

The Russian Federation has rebuilt her armed forces and is taking the lead in the Middle East. Russia's
relationship with Turkey has improved and her economy has survived American trade sanctions and the drop in oil prices. Europe's hostile reaction to Russia's repossession of the Crimean peninsula was prompted by Nato but even the Ukrainians are coming to terms with it.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is blindly following American foreign policy over Syria. His condemnation of Russia is hypocritical. Britain is supplying arms and military assistance to Saudi Arabia which is using bombing and starvation in the Yemen. His  outburst came only a week after Britain and the US bombed Syrian forces fighting IS terrorists. And he is now trying to organise a "no fly zone" which could start a war with Russia.  

The referendum was a setback but we are nevertheless moving towards a continental system that will eventually include Britain and Russia. Donald Trump has indicated that America's commitment to Europe will not last forever and the proximity of Russian gas and oil to German industry will be decisive. The evolution of Europe that started with Charlemagne will inevitably unite our continent from the Atlantic to the Urals. But first we must drop the myths and prejudices of the past.

The Frankfurt School

The Frankfurt School was a group of Marxist academics who set out to change the world in 1923. The far-right blame them for the tolerant views of most young people. They think that people are naturally race-conscious and only adopt liberal attitudes as the result of left wing propaganda. But it's just as likely that people are naturally liberal and only become race conscious as a result of right wing propaganda.

There's nothing wrong with being aware of one's race and culture but discrimination is unfair. Organisations like 'Black Lives Matter' and the 'Black Policeman's Association' are blatantly racist. All lives matter and the Policeman's Union is for all officers white and black. 

The mass migration of cheap labour into Europe and North America is the result of capitalist greed not Marxism. A few students might have absorbed left wing propaganda at university but most people have never heard of Karl Marx.  

The Frankfurt School is part of an alleged Jewish plot that
embraces racial integration, global warming, fluoridation, sexual promiscuity, and recreational drug taking. The far-right have created a conspiracy theory that  appeals to a deluded minority. But the majority of people put it in the same category as flying saucers and the Loch Ness Monster.

Dr Yaqub Zaki (James Dickie) on Nation Revisited # 118

I was at school with Alfie Primrose. He was my school chum. The family lived modestly in a smuggler's cottage at Inverkip, a village near to where I live. His mother did not approve of our friendship because I was only middle class. I'm pretty sure that it was the Rothschild money that got his grandfather (Archibald Primrose the Earl of Rosebery married to Hannah Rothschild) into No 10 in the 1890s as Liberal Prime Minister.

Similarly the Sasoons (Sybil is my friend; we go to concerts of Islamic music together). The Sasoons took over the opium trade from the Scots (Jardine Mathesons). Likewise in the States. The Delanos were opium smugglers. FDR never once alluded to the source of the wealth that got him into the White House. Liberals are the most dangerous species of all. You may be sure it was the Jews in league with the Liberals in Parliament who got Burton dismissed as consul in Damascus. he wrote a book about a ritual murder in Damascus. Only half the MS was published; the other half was purchased by the Board of Deputies at a book auction to prevent it being published; it is still in their possession.
