Let’s face it, Nationalism in Britain has been in the doldrums for many years. To the majority of people, the recent economic swings of capitalism could be tolerated and were preferable to any alternative. Cheap goods were the goal, so who cares if importing the products that we used to manufacture ourselves puts British workers’ on the dole? Surely they could get a job at McDonald’s or Burger King?
But, as is the way with consumerism, the people are not fulfilled and have grown increasingly restive. Having a nice house and car, along with the latest gadgets (and the accompanying debt), does not make you happy. If anything, it is the opposite.
Having an ‘I’m alright Jack’ attitude doesn’t insulate you from the problems of the feral gangs, drugs and crime that are happening on your local street at night. It’s safer to stay in, watch the TV, keep voting for the old gang politicians and pretend everything is hunky-dory. Bury your head in the sand and it doesn’t exist. Simple.
But that selfish attitude will not protect your children from the realities they face of being in a minority at school or from the dealers who hang around the school gates at home time. Or the predators and grooming gangs who see every young girl as something to be used and abused. The ‘migrant crisis’ continues to grow and won’t go away, no matter how much the establishment hopes it will.
Marxist Trade Union leaders, sensing an opportunity to further their political ideology, exploit the discontent amongst their members by calling strike after strike. Using genuine grievances, they scream that the NHS, the education system, the Railways, etc are failing because of cutbacks in funding. The fact that Britain’s population has increased by 8 million since the 1990’s is totally ignored since the increase is almost solely due to mass migration from the third-world.
Our enemies snigger that the ‘Fascists’ are now all middle-aged men. The young have turned their back on them and have embraced multi-racialism they cry. Materialism, liberalism and apathy have won them over. The political police and their woke leadership, aware of the changing political climate, are intensifying their harassment of Nationalists.
But, as in the title of this post, the times they are a changing. In Europe, populism is making huge gains at the expense of the old left-right elites. The latest poll of voters carried out a few weeks ago in Austria, shows that the Freedom Party of Austria (FPO) is tying for first place with the socialists. From Sweden to Poland, Italy to France, the people are looking for a radical alternative to the ‘safe’ bourgeois politics of yesterday.
Although not perfect by any means, these civic nationalist groups are preparing the ground for genuine racial Nationalist and National Socialist organisations to make a breakthrough. They are making Nationalism and patriotism respectable again.
The young are taking an active role and they won’t be content to just tinker around the edges of the system that created the problems in the first place. A significant number of them will look to us as a natural progression from the safety valves of the right to genuine revolutionary movements.
And now add into the mix the economic crisis. In the UK, the consumer price index (CPI) eased slightly to 10.7% in annual terms in November, down from 11.1% the previous month. These figures are causing panic for those who believed the good times would last forever. House repossessions and hardship will follow.
The price of food and non-alcoholic drinks went up by 16.5% in the 12 months to November, up from 16.4% the previous month, the biggest jump since April 1945. The value of sterling slipped after the news, and the Bank of England is under pressure to raise rates again and again to try and ward off the crisis. The young will find the option of getting on the housing ladder a non-starter.
Britain has been hard hit by the surge in European natural gas prices caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The two-year cap on prices has been scrapped by the new Chancellor and replaced by a six-month cap. The slogan ‘Eat or Heat’ is now a reality for many. The post-COVID supply-chain bottlenecks have opened our eyes to the amount of unnecessary tat we import from China and the Far East every year.
A container ship, a quarter-mile long and loaded with 18,300 individual containers, get’s stuck in the Suez Canal, and suddenly there are shortages of everything from chocolate to kitchen rolls. This accident, by one ship we must remember, brought an estimated 15 percent of international trade to a halt. With some $1 billion worth of cargo, including fruits and vegetables, Lenovo computers, Ikea furniture, Nike footwear, and one full-size replica Tyrannosaurus Rex destined for a Putt-Putt course in England, the blockage held up an estimated £9billion of trade per day.
The full fragility of Globalism was laid bare. Capitalism is a cancer that is sucking the lifeblood and vitality out of all individual nations, pushing us into a coffee-coloured, one-world global consumer society. In this capitalist utopia, the people who developed cures for deadly diseases, built magnificent cathedrals and sent men to the moon, are relegated to mere consumers, on par with those from the other side of the world who still live in mud huts. A wage slave is still a slave whatever their colour or state of development.
But all is not lost. For the first time in nearly two decades, Nationalism is on the march again. Our stand on capitalism and consumerism can only gain us more young, idealistic followers. Our brand of Nationalism, accompanied by our genuine Socialism and modern outlook, gives us a head start in the battle for influence and power.
