[freedom] twilight's last blogging

These are not my words but they could be:

Imperfect, divided, mutually quarrelsome as often as not; we still see the threats approaching and try, as best we can, to rearm the shrinking world of freedom and the culture it springs from. Even when things look as black as they do today for freedom’s cause, we need to fight and fight again, and plan and persuade and rage and swear and sneer and joke wherever and whenever we can.

Because the bad guys aren’t going to stop. So let’s hear it for Themistocles: the dirty, sneaky, pig-headed father of the West’s survival.

Please read the whole thing at North Northwester.

I guess you're not asking for superficial answers.

The true answer goes much deeper, and is also the answer to the immediate preceding piece you wrote, on litter, etc.

It is the current thrust of the nation to destroy itself, the standards that were once held, the education/intellectual levels, the philosophic identities, the family, the "knowing".

This is deliberate at all levels and markedly so since the election of nulab. Its deliberate prey are the easily influenced young, - ergo it is very active in the education systems.

It is happening internationally and is orchestrated and funded by the same culprits as before.

You keep showing the symptoms, and I believe you know the answers, so thank you for trying to raise awareness.

Regrettably, judging by the answers written here, you seem to be failing.

This conscious movement is now so far advanced that I do not believe it can be turned.

Be aware of it in your personal life, and seek to nullify its effect on any of your loved ones. Seek to preserve what it seeks to destroy, and inform those that are receptive. As the movement gains power in the future, don't make waves.

Maybe, Anonymous. We sure are neck deep in it.
But....


A handful of cultists watch the execution of their only teacher by the greatest state on earth's distant province in the First Century .

Frankish Knights and infantry face the The Umayyad Caliphate - perhaps the world’s foremost military power- at Tours.

General Washington hides in Valley Forge with a tiny force of starving, freezing troops whilst soldiers the world's most powerful empire move freely through much of his country.

My post was about it being a struggle. A long struggle. But it's not lost yet.
And it won't be until we all give up.
All.

What you say is true.

This war is for minds.
The aggressors have all the mouth pieces and all the ears of the populace.
The populace have been subjected to, and still are, 24/7 propaganda.

Shortly, this medium will be controlled.
RFID everywhere, eventually controlling your access to your finances, and controlled by "them". Press abutton, and, hey presto, you don't exist, - nothing!

Don't misunderstand my motivation on this issue, I'm quite happy for James to fill you in on my history.

How do you propose to fight?

North Northwester said...

Anonymous; thank you for your reply - especially as mine to you was way pompous to say the least...

I agree; the Sinisters own the culture and they're handing it over to the Jihadis as fast as they can appease. i started to blog overtly politically at Senator Obama's election because I share your fear about our situation.


I agree we're in a weak position - but only comparatively.

We still have the internet,and some print, and Big Hollywood, and much of the Anglosphere won't knowingly sign up for suicide - if we tell them it's suicide.

Look, I have guests coming tonight soon and I don't want to do other than answer your important questions as well as I can, because I am committed to the culture war.

I have a couple of ideas and, if you're still interested, I'll try and post a couple of answers when sober tomorrow.

And would ask James, if he thinks I ought to know, what your history is that's pertinent to this but he's trying to move house so you can mail me at northnorthwester@yahoo.co.uk if you need to.

Anon - I think we can be on first name terms, don't you? what we need to do is in the spirit, though not thankfully in the form of a well known speech that contains the words beaches, fields and streets.

And with that, thanks and goodnight.


The mead's starting to kick in you see..

Have a good evening, NNW.

I don't see too much of a problem with the Jihadis. They are recipients of benefits unearned, and that is galling to the incumbents,- I rather see the problem as being the criminality of our elected representatives, who are failing in such a despotic manner, legislating away our legal rights, and proceeding with their own agenda.

They have seized this financial crisis, that has been orchestrated for decades by a select few, all members of a single organisation, to accelerate their plans.

The size of the conspiracy is vast and the leaders extremely wealthy.

Ethnic minorities are a side issue to distract attention.
They aid in the planned destruction of OUR society, but, they will be dealt with in due course, as the leaders who are giving away the above are not really the leaders, and don't understand the totality of the plan. In a word, they are pawns.

Are we on the same wave-length?
Do you see it this way?

If you don't, you have weeks of reading to do. :)

That is my philosophy too, it is what drives me to do some of the things I do.

Or put another way, it isn't over until the fat lady sings!!!

I guess you're saying that you don't sing or something, right?

BTW the National Memorial Arboretum thing you posted was a revelation; I'd never heard of it and never expected my lottery cash to be spent so well.

Hello again Anon. Thanks for your comment.
I’m rehydrated, breakfasted, lunched and ready for the ego-trip I call blogging…

I wish you were more right about the jihadists. Their petrodollars certainly don’t derive from much science or technology from the world of Islam, but it doesn’t matter where their power comes from in the context of this clash-of-civilisations war. Their ideology is mean, superstitious, warlike, intolerant, imperialist and totalitarian, and just because Islam is uninventive compared to enlightened Christendom it doesn’t mean they can’t win.
Culturally the Normans were inferior to the Anglo-Saxon England in pretty much every way but they won a battle. One battle and they were in charge; depopulating Yorkshire and warring with every neighbour the English had and speaking French at court until Queen Elizabeth’s day, I think.
Saudi money is being spent throughout Britain and the rest of the West and it’s no distraction at all.
The Islamists mean business; they take their founder’s teachings and actions at face value, and in the glorious words of film hero Kyle Reece, they absolutely will not stop.
I’ll recommend some reading for you; Koran, Sira, and Hadith.

Or look here;
http://www.politicalislam.com/
http://www.frontpagemag.com/
http://www.danielpipes.org/

Now THAT’S a conspiracy!

You say “Ethnic minorities are a side issue to distract attention.”

I don’t see Islam as an ethnic issue – what race is an ideology? What sort of hair, skin and stature do Moslems have? Pretty much every kind, I think, except they haven’t got any Eskimos or Aborigines yet.
Probably.
Ethnicity is important as a marker for cultures and our culture is surely under attack in part due to uncontrolled immigration but I don’t worry about it in its own right because I’m not that kind of right-wing.
The good guys won the Battle of Britain and the bad guys lost and that’s that.

“I rather see the problem as being the criminality of our elected representatives, who are failing in such a despotic manner, legislating away our legal rights, and proceeding with their own agenda.

The size of the conspiracy is vast and the leaders extremely wealthy.”

What I think is going on is that mainstream socialists and their parasites and allies the Gramscian Marxists have pretty much stolen most the bits of the culture (the media, the academy, arts and entertainment) that they haven’t been given on the plate by narrow-minded conservatives and other supposed guardians of our great free-trading and property-based Judeo-Hellenic civilisation. This puts us on the back foot and up a gum tree (devilishly clever these bastards are!) when it comes to arguing about economics or education or foreign policy. If every debate we enter is framed in a cultural world in which families are rape-infested hell-holes and Americans and Israelis are evil mass-murderers and all businessmen are river-polluting shanty-town-bulldozing robber barons we’re not going to have much luck persuading propagandized people to vote for a family-supporting, anti-terrorist and pro-market economics supporting party or coalition.

And so we blog.

I do think that the ideology of both legitimate socialists and their undercover Marxist pals has allowed/compelled them respectively to treat property, businesses, and peoples’ bodies as public resources and hence their illegal activities and statutory instrument (free from parliamentary debate) legislation means they’ve pretty much nationalized the British people. And they fund their party with taxes to Left-wing recipients of government advertising and via public-sector jobs to their union bosses and subsidizing their cultural arms. Plus they are sodding up the economy because that’s what even honest and decent and patriotic socialists do.

Don’t even get me started on the European Union.

Thus, we are so screwed.

I’m not going to go into what I want to do about it straight away because I’ve got this idea and I want to work on it a bit. Also, I’m on holiday this week and Mrs. Northwester has a number of marital duties that she wishes me to perform and that’s going to take up a lot of time, what with my back and all.

“Are we on the same wave-length?
Do you see it this way?”

From the context I think you may be concerned with ideas about, for example, Common Purpose or that international group whose German-sounding name eludes me at present. There’s a chap over at Biased BBC who comments as Atlas Shrugs/Shrugged and his thoughts remind me of yours.

I tend to believe that if such over-arching conspiratorial organisations existed in the form you hint at and were armed with such power as their keenest critics suggest, then at least some of the regular right-wing bloggers would know about them and publicise accordingly; such as Mark Steyn or Melanie Phillips. But then, if it was a really powerful conspiracy it might hide its tracks perfectly, or suborn even the ultra-good good guys as well. Or misdirect them.

Okay. You’ve done me the kindness of commenting about my Themistocles post on James’ blog and mine, plus done me the flattering honour of engaging in polite and rational political debate. I’m grateful for both.

I’m a skeptic, and therefore have an open mind. So here’s what I’ll do. If you want to post me a couple of links to websites which are on your ‘wavelength’, then please do so.
I won’t promise to be convinced, but I will look at them because:

A. You’re polite and I like to think I’m polite too, and that’s what a polite person would do, and
B. You might be right.

Fair enough?

Cheers,

NNW.

Common purpose is a very small part of it.

There is an organisation that is pushing the global coalescence of nations into power blocks, eg the EU next move is North Africa.

The same group is behind the Global Warming/Carbon Credits/Green Taxes/Control of Industry scam. It therefor has the power to influence UN thinking.

The same group was/is behind the Womens Lib movement, in order to expand the pool of labour to increase the tax base, to offset the decline of G7 prosperity/purchasing power, weakened by a mathematically waning Fiat currency system. It had the added advantage of destabilising the family unit.

The same group is behind the teaching of "sex education" to primary school children, behind the slaughter of the teaching of christianity in state schools, behind the drastic dumbing down of education levels, principally in the US and UK, but spreading in the G7, behind the teaching about alcohol and drugs, about various, ermm, "moralities" in partnerships - now deemed normal. The destruction of our society.

The same group behind the initial financing of 9/11, (I'm working on 7/7), (they actually got ambitious and predicted 9/11 in private conversations, and these are repeated on utube!) - - Hence my stand that the war on terror is largely false, and was in Iraq, (oil), and is in Afghanistan, (pipelines down to Asia, and a rich plethora of minerals).

The same group behind the financing of the Bolsheviks, and the financing of Hitler.

The same group historically behind so many failed states in SE Asia, and S America.

The same group behind the NAFTA, the Amero.

The same group has cross memberships with the group you were thinking about, the b/bergers.

The same group that planned and organised the financial malaise that now grips the planet, and are now growing immensely stronger because of it.

The same group that infest every global organisation, the UN, IMF, the BIS, the WTO, the WHO, and on, and on.

And after all that, you have to realise that only perhaps a small %age of that group realise the genuine game plan.

To de-fang this movement, you must de-fang the few who pull the strings of these groups, and that is the problem.

I say again, the minority population problem is a side issue to the major problem. It may be very real at street level, it is part of the overall plan to destroy our society.

The answer is to destroy the forces behind the curtain, then their acolytes would disappear into the intellectual slime from whence they originate.

I'm patient.

Check with James first.

Good luck with your move, James. I’m going to post this in a couple of places in the hope you’ll see it.

From yours of yesterday
“It's as well to look yet again at the elite's manifesto:
1) Abolition of all ordered governments
2) Abolition of private property
3) Abolition of inheritance
4) Abolition of patriotism
5) Abolition of the family
6) Abolition of religion
7) Creation of a world government

Marriage and the family

Pornography, the gay mafia, feminism and the predictable male backlash, along with the tame reconstructed male, domestic violence which is never explored for its true antecedents, the rise of the unsocialized young male and now female, the dumbing down of education, agendas of destructive organizations like planned parenthood and the detested CSA, the controlled MSM, a new generation which knows nothing of ordered society - all contribute to the destruction of the family unit and marriage as its binding glue.”


It’s one of the great fun things about t’interweb to meet like-minded people, and as our posts show, we tend to agree on lots of stuff, you and I. but then, so do a lot of others, it seems.

To put it crudely (hey, it works for me), when I read this particular post I nearly arrived.

It also crystallized something I’ve been thinking about lately.

Now, here’s the thing. I witter on in my own sweet way about the culture wars, taking my inspiration from House of Dumb, ambush Predator, Ranting Stan, Unenlightened Commentary, UK commentators, Archbishop Cranmer, NO itself, and the like.

Western civilisation is down 4-1 and it’s nearly full time.

A Gramscian Marxist is about to be inaugurated President of the United States with a torrent of media approval and with the full cultural anointment of Hollywood; the Manchurian Candidate, originally filmed as a satire of Red-baiting in the US but which also pointed out that the Communist world was indeed a foul, manipulative, and imperialist place, has been remade with the evil corporations rather than communists as the manipulative web-masters; and the Leader of the Conservative Party is not planning to cut taxes to help cure the oncoming socialist-created depression.

(Pause to adjust jaunty angle of Bacofoil bonnet, kiss piece of True Cross, touch Enoch’s collected speeches.)

We freedom-lovers and culture-warriors are divided. There are at least 2 1/2 freedom-loving parties of the Right intending to put up Westminster candidates against each other. The good guys in the Liberal Democrats are pretty much imprisoned by being mixed in amongst all those communitaire illiberal non-democrats, and as for the torch of freedom being upheld by patriotic Labour supporters…Well, they are out there alright, by the busload; look at Harry’s Place or, I’m guessing Cherry Pie(? sorry if I’ve read you wrongly Cherie), Steven Pollard and the rest. But mostly, such people seem to be huddled, spiritually, at Frank Field’s lighthouse whilst the Harmans and Smiths and Darlings rule the roost.

…And then there are the hundreds of thousands of people out there who comment on the BBC CIF and Daily Mail blogs with varying chances of being published.
Some of these may occasionally write to their MP ( -’s secretary/assistant who may or may not pass the odd letter on, or do a digest of the day’s/week’s mail, depending on just how dedicated and professional the MP is) but the MPs look at the media and other politicians’ blogs perhaps more than they pay attention to us; the poor dumb schmucks who provide their daily swill.

So the statist Left, the militant atheists and class warriors, the Gaian fanatics, the family-haters and cultural relativists have a pretty clear run at it.

When a proposed and much-needed road finally gets planning permission, it’s the antis who do the demonstrations, who contact the media and who are interviewed at length. If a freedom type or traditional Labour person gets interviewed, then the journalists will already have been extensively briefed by the wreckers’ incoming phone calls, emails, information packs and, of course, they’ll know where to find their Greenpeace/Marie Stopes/Amnesty/CND/Liberty website.

Our side doesn’t get much of a look-in in the local papers, radio station phone-ins and websites because our side are off doing jobs and are already out of the information loop about local and national issues not highlighted by their own favoured information sources. There’s no single go-to place for news about vindictive bin-men and unwelcome housing developments and high local taxation, and even where such things are posted, they don’t usually link to or provide information about the national bodies and campaigning groups which are interested in such issues.

When an MP opens his mail digest – if he gets one – he will be impressed by the high numbers, quality and clarity of the Left’s demands that he follows their viewpoint. Even if he is highly ideologically educated and resistant to Left-wing propaganda, he still wants to be re-elected, and if he gets a diet of this every day he’s going to at least consider a course change closer to port.

And what are all those unaffiliated, floating voters; our silent majority, our moral majority to do? Who promotes their concerns to local, regional and national media?
Where do they get the encouragement to phone councillors (whose phone numbers are where, exactly and what are their names?)
Where can they find information packs and existing local pressure groups so they don’t needlessly duplicated effort?
Where do churchgoers who would never, in a million years, consider themselves to be political, let alone culture warriors or Tories [heaven forfend!] or libertarians [the paedo drug-users, right?] find the people and the resources to oppose LEAs’ gay rights or other sex education indoctrination?
Where does the Starbucks employee get to meet the rabbi when they’ve finished sweeping up the broken glass and how do they get to learn about the Zion chapel’s vandalism? Who’s going to join the dots for them – where would they even see the dots? Remember, a lot of these people are unlikely to meet each other and would normally run a mile if obliged to read a specialist website which is known to be contaminated by the dreaded Tory name, or the unforgivable ‘Right-wing.’
Who will make up the numbers in the media wars?
How will they ever realise that their own personal interests are a part of a shared struggle [same cultural enemies in charge of their nightmares and ours] and team up for mutual support – we’ll support your family-friendly housing development if you call Radio Castletown about the kerb-crawling down by the old railway sheds. Together we’ll team up and support the copper who’s in trouble for investigating whether those schoolgirls are going off to be married in the middle of term.

Where’s the go-to source for information for the good guys?

How do we, the somewhat aware, do what American conservatives and patriots of both of their main parties did from the 1950s onwards to build campaigns that would one day coalesce with Moral Majority, national security buffs and fiscal conservatives to create the Reagan coalition?

We have so much knowledge and talent out there on our side; I don’t think we’re even a minority in our own land, but we need to get the people together because what with one thing and another, considering what the Left has been doing to us for decades, the majority of our countrymen have developed a defective gag reflex.

The comments on your site and mine from in response to “Why We Blog” and at NO “[freedom] twilight's last blogging” have somewhat clarified my thoughts on this.

The good news is that politics is the League, not a knockout cup competition.

Today Devil’s Kitchen proposed a specialist version of my idea – a bogus charity site to identify and expose the insiders’ quangocrats. Take a look when you’ve moved if you like. It’s very good.

http://fakecharities.org/


I’m thinking of a site where people can post information about local campaigns in a readily accessible form, by town, county, or region, or by theme – womens’ rights and safety and the right to life [nice trick if you can combine the two!], justice, the welfare state benefits aristocracy, taxation, Euro-serfdom, against anti-Semitism, and so on – and about local, national or international issues that the other side are promoting.

This should gather together the resources; campaign groups, contact details for potential listeners or publishers in the media and their audiences and readerships, plus MPs, MEPs, councillors and other decision-makers so that people can at least put it all together and put pressure on the Them to at least hear about and maybe even consider the interests of Us.

I don’t yet know how or even whether to resolve the obvious potential problems of those who value freedom more than some other valuable thing like national security on each particular issue; libertarian versus wider conservative concerns. Perhaps it would be a good idea just post the lot and let readers’ consciences sort them out. Freedom, and all that.

It should be non-partisan – this is our shared civilisation we need to protect; not just some Tory private estate. The Atlantic seabed is littered with merchant and RN ships enclosing the skeletons of sailors from all political persuasion who thought that Britain and the West worth fighting for.

Call it something like “national and local citizenship information” and let battle commence.

Any takers?

Better yet, any givers?
