Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

A nation is blood, soil, culture and language

It is not cultural marxism or the multi-cult club.

by StFerdIII

What is a nation? Is it an economic construct over a certain area? Is it just a politically defined territory? Is it an area ruled by common laws and one constitution? Or does it denote a race, a tribe or a culture? Does a nation have any meaning in the modern world, with its cultural Marxist preoccupations; its internationalist drift and subservience and its revisionist anti-Western, anti-Christian ideology? If narcissism and self-gratification, in a culturally relative world is the main preoccupation of living, why then should we worry about an abstract concept such as a ‘nation’? A nation in the post-modern, anti-Enlightenment, statist-Marxist world we live in, surely must be irrelevant? Just open the borders and live and let live, why worry about the abstract?

The definition of a nation takes on great importance in an age of Islamic fascism; cultural Marxism and relativity; and the ever burgeoning rise of state control. If we don’t know who we are, how can we defend our freedom and rights? In the orthodox conservative tradition the definition of what is a nation has four major elements: blood, soil, a common culture, and a common language. If these four essentials are not present then any collection that calls itself a nation is living a lie.

Blood, soil, culture and language are the muscles and flesh of national consciousness. A nation is first and foremost an emotional appeal. To belong to a blood line, and to an area of soil, is to root yourself in history, tradition, lore, and the majesty of shared experiences. A nation needs a common ancestry living on unique soil, usually paid for in blood and treasure, to create in its people the emotional consciousness that uplifts life’s everyday toil to a higher plane of destiny and fulfillment. Blood lines are always mixed, inter-racial and impure, but there needs to be some historical integration of blood lines, a commonality in the racial experience along with living in a defined area for the emotionalism of a nation to take root. Simply put different blood lines and races usually have difficulty adjusting themselves to forming a common statehood.

Beyond blood and soil national emotionalism is fashioned in heritage and culture. There is no doubt that individual, tribal, societal, community and national health and vigor is informed in every way possible by culture. Morality, spirituality, economics, demeanor, pride, wealth, compassion, charity, love, family units - all are informed by the culture of the nation. Without a shared culture there is no nation state. This is true of language as well. You cannot build shared systems of beliefs and cultural links, when languages divide a people. Without a common language there is no common national consciousness. As Mark Steyn has written, bilingual societies are in fact, bi-cultural states and the two cultures usually end up divorcing from each other.

If the above is true then cast your wary eye around the world today. Canada recognizes Quebec as a ‘nation within a nation’. Mecha, La Raza and other racist Hispanic organizations call for the future independence of a Latino Californian-state. Ten countries within the EU face serious separatist challenges by groups and regions who desire independence. Tribal wars and civil wars are the norm in Africa and parts of south-east Asia. What links all of these national fissions are the above mentioned elements; blood, soil, culture and language. The fissiparous regions of these states do not share these 4 key elements with the rest of the nation.

Quebecers have little in common with the rest of Canada – language, blood, culture and even the soil are all different. Why should a Quebecer feel like a Canadian or vice-versa? A rapidly Mexicanizing California will soon have nothing in common with Utah or Kentucky. Why should a soon to be majority Hispanic population in California with a different language, culture, set of attitudes and heritage want to stay inside the US for anything other than economic reasons? What will happen to Holland or Sweden when in 30 years time 60% of people under age 35 are Muslim and are demanding Sharia law, more mosques and the destruction of infidel statutes, public monuments and place names that offend Islam? In this sense does it make sense for Madrid to bribe Catalonia or Basque country to stay inside the Spanish union even as Spanish society succumbs to a rising tide of Muslim immigration and demands?

Understanding what a nation is and what the blood, soil, culture and language linkages of the nation in question are, is rather vital in a world torn asunder by thundering fascist Islam, and the deconstruction of cultural Marxism. If you don’t know who you are or what you believe in then your nation is lost. If your nation is not really a nation but a collection of multi-cults; interest groups; competing languages and economic actors, than defending civilization and the abstracts of: freedom, culture, heritage, and progress is impossible.

This is why in Europe, in Canada and in other states that have implemented the cultural Marxist, multi-cult scam the nation will simply disintegrate. If your overarching national identity is a sport, state welfare programs, some muddle-headed nonsense about multi-cultural relativity and harmony you are doomed. If blood, soil, culture and language are not common, uniformed and shared, than your state is a lie. Simply put a false nation is not an emotional attachment but an illegitimate empire. These false empires, premised on cultural Marxism, relativity and government power, have deadened us to what makes Western civilization great and monumental. In the face of jihadic Islam this puts us at a distinct disadvantage.
