The Great Nation

Quotes.

The Great Nation, by  Jean Thiriart, a few quotes:

For us a nation is, above all, a community of destiny.

Originally, a nation is not an ethnic or linguistic entity. What constitutes the reality and vitality of the nation is the unity of its historic destiny.

When men, peoples have arrived at almost identical levels of maturity, when a culture is common to them, when geography makes immediate neighbors of them, and the same dangers and the same enemies threaten them, the conditions are given for making a nation.

For us nationalism is the identity of destiny desired in light of a great shared plan.

We state that the smaller a nation is the more it is subject to foreign influences.

Freedom is power. Power is dimension. It is true of nations as of men: only the big ones are really free (*).

It is a good book, very pan-European in outlook and also very much opposed to petty nationalism. There is also the issue of anti-Americanism, a common trait of continental European (particularly French or Belgian like Thiriart) nationalists (or those like Yockey who were similar in outlook). These types typically do not distinguish the American state from the (White) American people, or, at least for the latter, do not distinguish culturally European Whites from the booby masses.

He also notes – back two generations ago – the folly of importing migrant workers when automation will make their labor superfluous. Even if one were to accept the priority of economics (which we should not) and the idea that aging populations will have a shortage of younger workers, all of that is moot with sufficient automaton. 

Ultimately, the economy is based on productivity as well as the balance between production and consumption, between supply and demand.  Productivity can just as easily be achieved, and typically more efficiently, with automaton than with human labor (hence, the entire economic history of industrialization), and demand does not require ever larger masses of people, as per capita consumption can increase with higher and higher standards of living. Excess production – if a “problem” – can be siphoned off into mass projects such as space exploration and the creation of technical and cultural artifacts.

As an aside, I note the utter hypocrisy of filthy scum like Greta Thunberg who agonize over “the environment” while not opposing mass immigration and unrestricted Third World population growth. both of which are having, and will increasingly have, negative effects on environmental stability. You would think that a person really suffering from “the disability of Asperger’s Syndrome” wouldn’t care about the social sensitivities of political correctness and would just blurt out the truth.  But, alas,the Holy Ladogan does not do so.

*Then towering and statuesque heroes such as Johnson and Spencer are more free than manlets like Anglin or any of the scurrying two foot tall swarthoids old Humphrey was trying frantically to stamp out.

A Telling Quote

It explains much.

From the novel Majestrum by Matthew Hughes:

A lifelong habit of being right also had the effect of diminishing one’s social appeal, especially among those who prefer to keep the bubble of their various illusions a safe distance from a needle-sharp and probing intelligence.

There probably is not another sentence in the history of literature that more accurately reflects the true underlying reasons for the hostility of “movement leaders” for the “crazy and bitter” Ted Sallis.

And the whole interplay is amplified by the “rage of a privileged class” effect of affirmative action beneficiaries smashing up against the wall of the Peter Principle, and taking out their frustrations on those who have more ability but who are not part of the quota set.

It’s unfortunate that such attitudes stand in the way of pro-White interests, and of properly utilizing the available human material to advance those interests, but it is what it is.

Hitler Quote vs. Breezy Steve

Adolf vs. Steverino: better to pursue the necessary but “impossible” than pursue a more “possible” yet useless or destructive course of action.

Hitler quote (*):
“We must not ask if it is possible to attain this goal, but whether it is necessary. If it is impossible, we will try it anyway and be destroyed. But if it is necessary and true, we must believe that it is possible just the same. And we need this faith. A thousand years look down on us, the future demands sacrifices.”
Note how that differs from the short-sighted idiocy of Steve Sailer, who rejects White nationalism because he assumes its goals are “impossible” to achieve.  So instead he promotes “citizenism” that is not only almost as “impossible” as White nationalism but that is worse than useless – indeed actively destructive – even if achievable.

Two Wonderful Quotes

From Romania.
I’ve started reading For My Legionaries and I’d like to note two very wonderful quotes that I’ve just come across there.
First, by Codreanu himself:

This betrayal by these politicians of their people is so frightening that, if they are still alive, the people should gouge out their eyes; if they are dead, their bones should be disinterred and burnt in public squares. Their children and grandchildren should be prosecuted, their wealth confiscated and they should be stigmatized with the epithet of “traitors’ children.”

That beautiful passage, sublime in its power and elegance, should be a guiding light to how a future White ethnostate should deal with whatever traitors, HBDers, anti-White Internet trolls, “movement” wreckers, and other absolute scum fall into its hands.
Then we have Professor Ion Gavanescul talking about the Jewish influence in Romania of the past:

…inadmissible, inconceivable monstrosities of ethnic biology…

Also to the point and brimming with truthful vigor.
