Australia is an Anglo-Celtic Nation


Editor: Yesterday, Rod Lampard challenged those of us at The XYZ to define what we mean by pro-white nationalism, and to demonstrate how this will not repeat past tragedies. This provides an excellent opportunity to recap some of our authors’ defining works on the subject. We start with the following article by Moses Apostaticus, originally published on May 21, 2017.

There is a double standard at work in the world today, and it revolves around the issue which will become the most divisive and yet most important one in the years to come: race.

There are some nations which are allowed to have an ethnic identity and others which are not. The difference between the two is that the nations which are permitted to have an ethnic identity are non-white. In the world today, only whites are not allowed to exist as distinct ethnic peoples in the nations their forefathers civilised.

When we look at the countries around the world that are the most successful, and we all know which ones they are, they have certain things in common. I’m talking about places like Israel, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, the Western European homelands and the countries, like ours, of the Western diaspora. The two things which are consistently in common across those countries are ethnic homogeneity and a high-IQ population. There’s no getting around it; if you don’t have those two things, your country will always and ever be ‘developing’. You’ll never achieve the status of ‘developed’.

This is a biological reality that remains true regardless of how you feel about it. Shake your fist at nature or God if you like, but it’s just the way it is. The Congo will never be the Netherlands. Such places with low-IQ populations or too much ethnic diversity will always be troubled places full of savagery, violence and low levels of human organisation. Just because it’s a racist fact doesn’t change that it’s a fact.

We in the decadent, postmodern West have ignored these biological realities to our peril. We’ve been convinced by perverse intellectuals for the last few decades that there is no biological basis for national identity. It’s been a dangerous delusion, and has resulted in the peoples of the West playing dead demographically while our lands are handed over to others. This is not a danger for Israel or the nations of East Asia as they have protected their ethnic integrity. We though are on a trajectory which makes our future more likely to be like Brazil’s than China’s. And we can’t even say it, because we might hurt someone’s feelings.

What did the diggers die for if we were just going to hand the country over to foreigners anyway? Why did the convicts sweat into the hot, sandy soil of their tenements, raising 10 kids on a pittance in the hope that they would have a better life than them? Why did the chocos struggle in the humid terror of jungle warfare against the Japanese during World War II if their grandchildren were just going to let Australia become ethnically Asian, African and Middle Eastern one day anyway? It makes of all our history, our stories and our heritage a futile joke.

Fellow XYZ writer Adam Piggott recently referred to this demographic destruction of Australia, pointing out that nearly 30% of Australia’s population today was born overseas. This is Bruce Jenner’s odyssey into biological denialism and madness on a national scale. You can keep pretending that biology doesn’t exist, that concrete realities such as race and gender are ‘social constructs’, and for a while you’ll be able to float in the space of your own imagination enjoying your own feelings in a relativist supernova of cosmic narcissism. Then one day, reality will hit you. And it will hit you hard.

The reality is that we are dying. We are old before our time, grown decadent and insane in our riches and our sophistries. Other peoples, more vigorous or wiser than us, are taking what our ancestors built and defended. They are the future, not us.

If you go to Egypt, China, Burma or indeed any non-white country in the world you’ll find the same pattern. You can live there for as long as you like, speak the language, eat the food, convert to the religion and in all ways take on the local culture, but you’ll never be one of them. This is true even in parts of Southern Europe, where the roots of tradition were too deep for cultural Marxism’s predations. These nations know their national identity has a biological foundation.

It is no coincidence that the Latin root of ‘nation’ refers to birth. A nation is nothing if not an extended kinship network.

The core ethnic stock of the nation of Australia are the English and Celtic peoples of the British Isles and Ireland. That is who we are as a people. It took two centuries of civilising, fighting, intermarrying, struggling and cohabiting together before this ethnic fusion was achieved. It was a remarkable accomplishment in itself. Perhaps it took the harshness and remoteness of the Australian landscape to finally make the English and Irish stop killing each other.

This birth of our people is the story of my own family. On my patrilineal side, I have five generations of English Catholic ancestors who, every generation, married an Irish Catholic girl. Or two, once the first one died in childbirth. It seems marrying a Protestant was even more detestable than marrying a Mick. On the other side of my family, my own grandparents had to get married behind the altar and my formerly Church of England grandfather convert to Catholicism before they could marry. As we can see from the troubles in northern Ireland, religion was often a proxy for ethnicity between Catholics and Protestants in the English-speaking countries of the New World.

Although religion is a powerful force for ethnic identity though, it is ultimately biology which proves more powerful. Catholics and Protestants are never going to agree on transubstantiation or sola scriptura, but their kids intermarrying for long enough will produce a new race. That’s what we achieved in Australia prior to World War II.

This is how ethnic identity can change over time. It just happens very slowly. Again, Australia is an example of that. At the time of Australia’s colonisation, an Englishman or an Irishman would have hit you had you suggested they are the same race. Now, in Australia, that ethnic distinction has disappeared. It took a century and a half though, and there are still cracks where the ethnic fault lines used to be. On the whole though, by the time of the Second World War, Australia was well on its way to achieving ethnic homogeneity.

This, always, should be the goal of a nation. The extent to which a nation is ethnically homogenous is the extent to which its future is guaranteed. The Kurds and Jews are evidence of this. Miscegenation is death.

After the war, we welcomed millions of Southern and Eastern European foreigners. The social disturbance which resulted was significant. Societies have antibodies against foreigners, and the wogs represented the first of successive waves of increasingly alien foreigners to our shore. Had we stuck with the Mediterraneans for a century or two, we may have been able to ethnically accommodate the newcomers and again achieve homogeneity. Instead, our neo-Marxist elites doubled down on their albophobic policies. Our society is failing as a result.

Now many of you reading this will have by now experienced a primal fear at these hatefacts. I understand; I experienced it too. These realities can lead to some troubling conclusions. We’ve been so conditioned to think that the great problem of history has been white ethnic identity that even the whisper of it can cause otherwise normal people to quite literally lose their minds.

Let me be clear about what I’m not arguing. I am not saying that Australia must be ethnically cleansed. I fear this may happen at some point in the future, as this is the pattern of history. It would be tragic beyond words though. I do not agree with some of those in the alt-right movement who believe that Western countries should become a white ethnostate. My disagreement with such notions is not only moral, but also practical. There is no such thing as a ‘white’ culture, ‘white’ religion, ‘white’ language or meaningful ‘white’ identity. The resurgence of Russian nationalism under Putin is a case in point. Russia is revitalising not because of a rediscovered identity in ‘whiteness’, but rather because of a rejuvenation of Russian Orthodoxy and the rejection of all forms of Marxist thinking.

For nations whose ethnic group have a clear religious tradition, like Italy, Ireland or Russia, this is fortunate. This provides a pathway for ethnic revival. We do not have such a religious unity, and so our rebirth must be through a rediscovery of the Anglo-Celtic basis of the Australian nation.

I am proposing, however, that we understand ourselves much as the Israelis and East Asians do. A foreigner can go and live in Japan for as long as the country will have them, put down roots, intermarry with the locals and make a living, but they will never be Japanese. There are 700,000 ethnic Koreans living in Japan who know they will never become Nipponites. Throughout history, this has just been how things were done. Ethnic enclaves can live within otherwise homogenous nations for centuries. It’s not ideal, and it usually ends badly during times of crisis, but it’s just what happens.

Only people born in this country should be citizens. In-group preferencing should be allowed, and seen as natural. If ethnic enclaves living here want to hire and do business with their own, then fine. But so should we. Discrimination must be restored as a natural and healthy practice of free people. It is only through such in-grouping that the ethnic identities of both Australians and foreign guests living here be maintained.

If also there are ethnic groups who consistently demonstrate that they are hostile to the interests of Anglo-Celtic Australians, then they should be expelled back to their homeland. There are many historical precedents for such measures.

We already have ethnic ghettoes in this country, and while deportation of non-citizens and non-residents and an end to immigration are absolutely necessary, our traitorous government has already allowed so many foreigners here that there will be sizeable enclaves within this nation into the future. Perhaps some policies of Australian demographic repair will be necessary, such as lower tax rates for those who can prove second-generation status or more. Of course this seems preposterous now, but if this demographic situation was happening in non-white countries they wouldn’t hesitate to bring in such measures. If the foreign guests who are living here don’t like it, they have their own ethnic homelands to return to.

Many will stay, and while we have taken far too many foreigners in over recent years, those who accept the Anglo-Celtic basis of our national identity, make a virtuous contribution to the country and do not try to change the country to suit themselves should be treated as guests. Many East Asian immigrants particularly that we have taken in are high-IQ, industrious and have better morals than most of us real Australians. In my view, these people are honoured guests. But they are still guests.

On a concluding note, I don’t hate foreigners. I am actually quite xenophilic. I have non-Australian family and many of my friends are foreigners living here. I am not a white supremacist; indeed, I tend to focus on the failings of my people in comparison to others because I want us to remember our greatness and become what we should have been before we took so many wrong turns. We won this land fair and square, and it belongs to us. We’ve made the best nation on earth out of its ancient, alien soils. As Dorothea Mackeller pointed out so beautifully, we’re not in England anymore. We’re a new nation. We’re still a nation though. We’ve earned it.

The love of field and coppice
Of green and shaded lanes,
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins.
Strong love of grey-blue distance,
Brown streams and soft, dim skies
I know, but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

The stark white ring-barked forests,
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon,
Green tangle of the brushes
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops,
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When, sick at heart, around us
We see the cattle die –
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the rainbow gold,
For flood and fire and famine
She pays us back threefold.
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze.

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land –
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand –
though Earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

‘My Country’, Dorothea Mackeller, 1904.

    Good piece of writing and it all rings true.

    Below, is a link to a Sydney news report I saw today.
    Middle Eastern sand people kidnapping,drugging and repeatedly raping a young Catholic Aussie White girl.
    Just great, isn’t it, how these middle eastern lowlives enrich our diverse multi cultural paradise ?

    It’s the first stanza that gets me. A clear homage to old England. Don’t forget your roots.

  • Felipe R.

    I’m a straight white Christian male and I make no apologies for it. I think political correctness is a cancer of modern society that must be eradicated for truth to be spoken freely. I also define myself as very conservative and take a hard line stance in all social issues, including immigration. Yet I believe everything in this article is awfully wrong. There is absolutely no link between a country’s ethnic homogeneity and its ability to develop. This is absolute (and very dangerous) garbage disguised as ‘politically incorrect fact’.

    • Warty2

      I suspect it is more that the ideas (which are by no means original) are offensive because of the political climate you have been brought up, i.e..visceral political correctness, inculcated since the end of WWII, for obvious reasons. But if you go back to classical times this was common place. The society we live in today would have been a complete anathema to Plato and his teacher, Socrates.
      Our Western Civilisation is under serious threat, indeed I suspect we have gone way beyond the tipping point. This is something Moses has been arguing for some time now, and for many Australians today it is an ‘unpleasant’ truth, quite simply because we have been taught to believe that every culture is equal, every belief of equal value, each and every sexual preference as good as another. My argument is that these perspectives are part of the run-down destroying our once great civilisation. Unpleasant truths need to be spoken if we are to have any chance of stepping back from the brink.
      Unfortunately far too many Christians have allowed ideas of ‘compassion’ to undermine the very values that have stood for two millennia. Atheists don’t really count, as they know not what they do.

      • Felipe R.

        I think you’re totally right in that “we have been taught to believe that every culture is equal, every belief of equal value, each and every sexual preference as good as another.” I would go as far as to say that Judeo-Christian western civilizations are superior both morally and intellectually. Don’t get me wrong. It is when you say that this has anything to do with ethnicity, race or ancestry that I take issue. That is just genuinely racist, period.

        • entropy

          Actually, it’s just as racist to claim otherwise unless you have proof to that effect.

          ‘Everyone is equal’ is a liberal fantasy that has no resemblance to reality.

    • Justin Beaver

      Have you looked at the native inhabitants of Africa lately ?

      • Felipe R.

        I would recommend you to read “Why Nations Fail” by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson

        • Justin Beaver

          Thanks for the tip.

        • entropy

          If you can’t summarise it, you probably didn’t understand it.

          “Read this” is not a counterargument.

          • Felipe R.

            The book goes to great depth to explain the causes of countries failing, which have to do with the political and economic institutions of each country. The book disregards ethnicity specifically with the contrast between both Koreas. Would you like to comment on that case study in particular? Ethnicity is quite homogenous in the north.

          • It’s true of course that the political system of a nation can impede the development of that nation’s human capacity. Look at most of the non-Western world over the last century. Since the fall of totalitarianism and the Third World dictatorships, however, some regions have flourished and others have not only languished but slid backwards. Africa is now a worse continent overall to live in than it was a century ago. Why is that?

            What the research in human biodiversity (HBD) is pointing out is that while high-IQ populations flourish under a liberal political order (at least economically), low-IQ populations can have all the democracy in the world and it only hastens their decline. The Middle Eastern dictators were repugnant, but they held the region together. Look at what happens when democracy is imposed upon a low-IQ population there. South Africa is another case in point, and the South American nations have collapsed as more democratic political orders have been instated there. The evidence of recent history is clear – IQ matters, and as different racial groups have different IQ levels this has political implications. Low-IQ nations cannot sustain the liberal political orders which enable economic and technological advancement. They require strongmen to keep them under control at a lower level of civilisation. Our forefathers understood this but we have discarded it as ideologically unacceptable. Millions around the world are paying the price for the utopian delusions of the Western ruling elite.

            Given that our nation has chosen to import huge numbers of incompatible, low-IQ foreigners into the nation, this really matters. We should not take civilisation for granted in such a reckless manner.

          • Felipe R.

            Race and IQ are only correlated, there is no causation between the two. This is a great missrepresentation of Charles Murray’s work (if that is your source). I hope you are just missunderstanding a scientificaly sound author. Otherwise you are just plainly prejudiced against other races (and there is a name for that, which I will not use so you don’t get distracted by me ‘name-calling’ you).

          • entropy

            Sure. This article didn’t say that ethnic homogeneity was prescriptive for national success, and you say your own source cites causes, plural, of countries failing.

            Then you go on to suggest that one proposed cause is invalid because a single state has failed despite its presence.

            Either you don’t understand your own argument or you’re being intellectually dishonest.

          • Felipe R.

            Except that it does. Quite explicitly:

            “The two things which are consistently in common across those countries are ethnic homogeneity and a high-IQ population. There’s no getting around it; if you don’t have those two things, your country will always and ever be ‘developing’. You’ll never achieve the status of ‘developed’.”

            Just drop it. Being wrong once is not the end of the world. Insisting in the point just makes you look dumb.

          • entropy

            Still waiting for you to tell me why North Korea should be successful based upon your reading of this article. Since you can’t, you ignore the thrust of my reply and resort to this pedantry? Let me know if you ever intend to reply to my comment.

            You should consider taking your own advice, but that would necessitate self awareness and personal responsibility. Probably easier to just claim victory and be a twat about it, like a true leftist.

          • Felipe R.

            I never said my understanding of the article led me to think that North Korea should be successful. I can’t tell you because I never made that claim, in other words. You really need to concentrate when reading my friend. And yeah, I’m the one making a fool of himself… and I’m a leftist…

          • entropy

            You really are gutless, aren’t you. In retreat from your own assertions this entire thread.

            “The book disregards ethnicity specifically with the contrast between
            both Koreas. Would you like to comment on that case study in particular? Ethnicity is quite homogenous in the north.”

            Intellectually dishonest or just dumb as dog shit. Either way, enjoy another block. You’ll probably find more friends back at HuffPo.

          • Felipe R.

            That was just to illustrate that correlation has nothing to do with causation. My point all along.

            Keep it up, smarty!

    • entropy

      Correlation is a link, is it not?

      • Felipe R.

        But you know correlation is not causation don’t you? I feel like you know that you are wrong and you know exactly why you’re wrong, but you’re just so emotionaly invested in your position that you won’t see truth even if you can explain it perfectly yourself.

        • entropy

          You didn’t say casual relationship, you said link. Correlation is easy to observe but causation is more difficult to prove.

          If all of your arguments boil down to your feelings, I’m not sure we have much to discuss.

          • Felipe R.

            Regardless of what I said (and I have no problem in being corrected and rephrasing my argument: I should have said “causal link”) the standard for your argument to be true is causality, not correlation. A mere link suggests nothing. Sorry friend, you are just wrong, very wrong.

          • entropy

            Incorrect. A link suggests a link.

            I’m happy to accept a causal standard, which is relevant to this article. But the lack of proven causality does not indicate its absence.

            What caused the tides before we knew it was the moon?

            To reject an argument you must disprove it, not merely point out that it hasn’t been proven to your satisfaction.

            Also, I’m not sure why you keep saying ‘your argument’. My argument is that your rejection of this article is unsubstantiated. Try to avoid these straw men if you can.

          • Felipe R.

            You are happy to accept that causality is the standard. I say there is no causality (it hasn’t been proven by the article). The standard is what needs to be proven for the argument to make sense (argument: we must preserve ethnic homogeneity). Refuting an argument does not imply I have to prove any counterargument. I just have to point out that the argument has no substance, which I did. The burden of proof lies with whoever affirms something. This is very basic stuff (again, I’m warning you, you are making a fool of yourself).

          • entropy

            Considering the standard of your reading comprehension, you’ll understand if I demur from your assessment about who looks the fool here.

            You didn’t ‘just point out that the argument has no substance’, you said it was wrong. “Awfully wrong.” Remember that?

            Why are you changing your story again?

            I made a concession the last time you were wrong, and you just got defensive about it. Perhaps if you were less self conscious about being a fool, you wouldn’t have to throw that accusation around so much.

          • Felipe R.

            It is awfully wrong precisely BECAUSE it has no substance to it. Nothing wrong there…
            By the way, if you want to point to my literary abilities, why don’t you take a look at one of your pearls:
            “Actually, it’s just as racist to claim otherwise unless you have proof to that effect.
            ‘Everyone is equal’ is a liberal fantasy that has no resemblance to reality.”

            Unsubstantiated is not the same as wrong you stupid fuck.

    Good article. I’ll add that the compatibility of the immigrants when integrating. Each wave of immigrants would have though something like this:
    Wogs: The English in Australia are like us, they’re Christians. Since we’re Christian but we’re poor we will work hard for our hosts and even put the Australian flag on our churches
    Asians (30 years ago): Similar to the wogs, only not Christian and not as patriotic. Still very Industrious
    Asians (now): Australia has heaps of land and natural resources we can profit off
    Africans: There is no law in our country therefore there is none in Australia, Australian government = free stuff

    The will and legacy of one’s Ancestors can only be properly interpreted by their living racial kin, not snivelling political whores and religious elites in the employ of others unmentionable as appears to be the case today.

An army whose names are shamed, dishonoured and defamed by the lies of the so called “Elites” who live privileged amongst us….. as reward for their elitist treachery.

It’s not about IQ, religion or spaghetti, it’s about blood and the fact that our enemies identity is as white, not “Anglo-Celtic” or whatever. It’s like you just beamed down from the 70s or something.
