For maximum radical unity

National Anarchism is a school of thought which goes above and beyond all hitherto dogmas. It transcends the pigeonholes that strangle political discourse to such an extent that many have ceased thinking of them as such. National Anarchists allow the individual to define concepts of nationhood as they see fit. National Anarchism is the new vanguard of anti-imperialisms - political and cultural. We celebrate and defend all ways of life and do not seek to deny anyone of their right to live according to their chosen ideals and identities - whether they be ethno/racial, national, religious, ideological, cultural or subcultural.

My own tribalism is based on that of the ethno-English and their collective national identity (I reject the leftist argument that this is an artificial con and a ruse, and maintain that this identity is born of an innate human desire to belong). My tribalism is based on my own peoples' common origin, traditions, culture, customs, language and history. That said, as a National Anarchist I don't seek to impose my values on others and certainly won't defend a nation state.

So I am a nationalist of sorts - a radical nationalist. I have my own definition of nationalism, but I accept that it is not the only legitimate definition. In the past I have posted missives here which have criticised civic nationalism - I still stand by these, but that doesn't mean that there can be no common ground between civic nationalists and ethno-nationalists. We have common enemies.

 The National Liberal Party - with its emphasis on national self-determination, is one group that has parallels with National Anarchist arguments.  Read up on them, learn from them. Differences of principle should not stop us from finding friends and fellow travellers - we have enough enemies. We need allies.

The National Anarchist current is growing - of that I'm certain. We are holding our ground and winning arguments with our detractors. But we must not become arrogant. Let's not let National Anarchism become just another dogma itself!

Raising standards

It's brilliant to see that Exmoor now has her own flag. Congratulations to Jenny Stevens, its designer. You can read about the flag's evolution here. It's encouraging to see that, in this age of mass junk consumerist culture, local identity is shining through in England. People are still proud of their patch, their home, their tribe, their vibe...County flags have taken off in a big way, and the flags of England's historic regions are beginning to catch up. Following on the heels of the Wessex Wyvern, the St. Alban's Cross - the flag of Mercia - has just been registered with the flag institute, thus freeing it from Whitehall red tape. What is significant about the Exmoor flag, however, is that it represents a bioregion -  and if Exmoor can have a flag, then why not Dartmoor, the Cotswolds, the Weald, the Dales et al. Unofficial cultural regions too, the world over, can (and many probably do!) have their flags. In England a recent example of such would be the Black Country. Now whether you choose to proudly hang them from your castle wall, or simply wear them on your lapel - just do it. The globalisers and centralisers won't like it, but they need to be told - OFTEN!
