Top of the Pops

I've always been a political trainspotter - I remember when Veritas split from UKIP and when the Popular Alliance split from Veritas. I'd almost forgot about the Popular Alliance, but I stumbled across them again the other day. They have some good ideas. National Anarchists should remember that we've lots of allies out there even if we don't realise it and in places we would not normally expect. The very 'normal' looking Popular Alliance for example say this:
We are anti-globalist and part of our anti-globalism is a policy of non-interference in other nation's affairs, opposition to interference in our policy making. We believe in localism - the small scale economy and decentralised society as envisaged by EF Schumacher, GK Chesterton and John Papworth. This is the direct opposite of internationalism and multinationalism, which is run by a remote global elite who are increasingly unnaccountable and powerful. A return to small nations, small governments, small farms and shops, and support for the "small man" against the big forces is what we strive for.
That's not a million miles from National Anarchists and other radical and revolutionary nationalists and tribalists. Of course we we differ on many things but so what? Build on what we have in common in line with the National Anarchist principal of pluralism - each to their own. Five years ago (what?!) I wrote about the need for a Grand Alliance against globalism and we still need one today.

The way through

National Anarchists promote intentional communities, villages and homesteads for different tribes (however defined) to secede from mass universalist 'clone' society and start living life in line with their political, cultural and social ideals. We do this because we know that we cannot seriously challenge mass society or overthrow the global elites  - we are realists. It's the reverse of "if you can't beat 'em - join 'em" If you can't beat 'em ignore 'em. Move away. The National-Anarchist Movement have a good slogan: There is no way back, there is no way out. But there is a way THROUGH. This sums it up perfectly.

Some nationalists have criticised our desire for our separatist tribal communities - they say we will become like the Amish. Well, we should take this as a complement! From where I'm standing the Amish are doing just fine and have done for a long time!

In South Africa today the Red October movement is getting organised. I'm assuming these folk are tribalist in essence otherwise they wouldn't be organising along tribal lines. Shouldn't they at least begin considering secession? They have fine examples in their country to follow like Orania and Kleinfontein - Tribalist communities that are making a go of things. And am I right to assert that National Anarchists would prefer rural communities to urban? We become closer to one another when we are closer to the soil.

"An agricultural country which consumes its own food is a finer thing than an industrial country, which at its best can only consume its own smoke." - G.K. Chesterton
