100 years ago today, we were a nation

15

Today is the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War. In just a few hours it will be 11am here in Holland which will be the exact time that the guns fell silent. The 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month. Autumn itself, the most bitter and beautiful month of the entire year.

Around the world and more specifically around Australia, moving and poignant ceremonies are being held. Speeches will be made where words will describe how these young men, simple citizens of their nation, willingly went off to fight in a conflict where so many of them would not return, and even if they did their lives would never be the same again.

If the soldiers who fought in The Great War were able to look around Australia today, they would not recognise the nation for which they fought, bled, and died.

For we have betrayed them.

Today also marks the release of the extraordinary documentary by director Peter Jackson of that conflict. Jackson has taken archival footage from The Imperial War Museum and modified the image speed and color so as to produce a film that looks as if it were shot today. He used lip readers to examine the footage and then actors to repeat the actual words that the real men spoke all those years ago.

The most startling aspect for me on watching various scenes of this documentary is the fact that once we were nations. I see only Anglo-Saxon men here. My ancestors.

A nation is not soil, it is blood. A nation is not an economy, it is a culture. A nation is biology. And demography is destiny.

The conflicts of the 20th century instilled the belief in many that the idea of nations was flawed and had to be erased. If there were no nations then there would be no conflict. Apart from the incredible naivety of this idea, even a cursory examination of human history reveals its falsity. The nation destroyers want an empire, but all empires fall and thus nations emerge.

But they also desired an empire based on the notion of human idealism. The modernist movements were essentially a break from God. A turning away from Christianity. We had entered the modern age and modern man had no need of such superstitions because of our innate superiority to those who had lived before us. Those who had built our nations. Those who had fought and died to do so.

Apparently we were better than them. We were superior not because of what we had done but because of when we were born. The notions of sacrifice; of country over self; of God, were old fashioned.

But we were not better than them. We were far worse. For we believed the lies, we embraced the selfishness of the individual, we rejected God, we allowed ourselves to be seduced by hedonism, and we believed any fad that our rulers told us to be true.

A man who believes in nothing will thus believe in anything.

Our nations now exist on paper only. Lines on a map. In the bible the word nation refers to people, not lines on a map. Australia is no longer a nation, only it doesn’t yet know it. It is a collection of peoples with no common values, with no common history, and with no common blood. It is unrecognisable from what it was thirty years ago, let alone a hundred.

That is not progress; it is destruction.

We should be ashamed of what we have allowed our nation to become as we pretend to honor the memories of the men who fought and died to preserve it. Their nation has been given away to greedy and grasping foreigners, like the so-called refugees on Nauru island who recently rejected an offer to resettle in the USA because the welfare was not generous enough.

We gave it away because we allowed it to happen. And we allowed it to happen because we embraced the lie of welfare ourselves, that it is better to rely on a parasitical government than it is to rely on your own hard work and your community. We do not build; we tear down and destroy. And then we rot, in body and in mind but most horribly in soul and spirit.

The images in Jackson’s film show bodies rotting in the Flanders’ mud, but they died whole in soul and spirit. No matter how terrible, they died as a part of something. Today we are alive and a part of nothing. One of these is hell and it is not the one that we were told.

For we were a nation once, and young.

    Our ancestors were slaughtered in vain so we can sell off the freedom they died for in exchange for self-indulgent hedonism.

    I don’t think I could bear watching the film for the reasons stated in your excellent article. Just no more Brother wars, that means no war on Russia (((they))) are beating the drums for. No war for Judea on Iran or Syria. No more Goyyim slaves with rifles thinking they are fighting for their own country, not a transnational elite.

    And yet in 2018 some foreign lesbian dim sim senator can interrogate the chief of our army and question him about armed forces business. This is nothing short of treason.

    If you have not lived under a rock, then you would have heard our tyrannical leaders speak highly of the current ethnocidal invasion of Australia. With the the phrase“the most successful multicultural country in the world” a popular point of description. If this is the case, then it is surely proof that “multiculturalism” can never be successful. There is a growing discontent among European Australians with the current system of seemingly overt population replacement, however, their righteous angst is being dubiously misleadby various factions of the “conservative” press and various fake “nationalist” parties. Sayings such as “our immigration system isbroken” and deceptive cries for “assimilation” and “integration” are being marketed to our dying people by a variety of snake oil salesmen who offer nothing but a faux alternative to the iron grasp of the neoliberal order we find ourselves increasingly suffocating in.

    The conception that our culture is abstract from our race is absurd, the Australian culture is a product of the Australian people, who are European. It is therefore impossible for an Asian, African or any other person who is not of European heritage to magically become “Australian”, whether they were born here or not. A meaningless piece of paper doesn’t dictate your nationality, it is your race and the culture that you are raised in. A person of a foreign people who is born here may very much feel Australian, but unfortunately for them, they can never be – for being Australian is a combination of both a biological reality and the soil on which you are raised, not merely the latter. The future for our folk under the current our destiny is ripped from our person, destined to be a Brazilian, anarcho-tyrannical dystopia with no distinct identity or unifying national characteristic other than a meaningless passport. The soil on which we stand today, worked by and soaked in the blood of our European ancestors will also be the cursed ground on which we will become a minority – in the land that had been passed down to us, generation by generation. Our forebears toiled selflessly so that we may have more opportunity than they ever did.

    No Australian family in those times remained untouched by The Great War. RIP, chaps. You are not forgotten.

    “Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal
    Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
    There is music in the midst of desolation
    And glory that shines upon our tears.

    They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
    Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow,
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
    They fell with their faces to the foe…..” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/801cbecc8bb2b87b0d50955ebd2baa27ab7bc1a88bc8d56f9cfec58618d224ed.jpg

    Imagine unironically believing that your race is better than others, and that slightly darker skin tones cause the destruction of nations.

    • entropy

      Imagine unironically believing that skin tone is the only racial difference and not noticing the correlation between race and culture.

    • Imagine thinking that we’d rather respond to you instead of give you a free helicopter ride.

    Adam, we Australians never stood a chance of preserving our nation because of the bi-partisanship of the major parties. Pauline stuck her head above the parapet and remember what happened to her. In 1966 her incredible result in Queensland terrified our elites. They had no idea there was such support for her views about the dangers (and injustice) of changing our nation by non-discriminatory immigration. I even remember the Zurich group’s David Hale on ABC advising that if necessary the Coalition and Labor should form a coalition to defeat her.

    That was the moment the scales fell from my eyes, or as they say these days I was red-pilled. Our democratic system of government was and is a sham. Voting allows the people to let off a bit of steam every now and then – as Carroll Quigley noted way back in 1966. But the plan steadily advances.

    The Visegrad countries are making a stand because they have strong MEN leading them as does the US with Donald Trump. Italy and Austria look like boarding the independent nations train too. So it can be done. It takes courage, conviction and determination to ignore – or better still, ridicule – the squawks of outrage from academia, the churches, big business, the Left and government bureaucracies. None of them are patriots – so they don’t matter!

    • I wish I’d woken up that early.

      Oh-so-clever me, buying the demonisation and mischaracterisation thrown at Senator Hanson by close to all and sundry. My country relatives took a liking to her but I was too sophisticated to see it or to see past her less than polished performance with the camera and microphone wielding hyenas. All those letters after my name and I still couldn’t see the bleeding obvious until the crap just got too much for any of it to make sense.
