Create a tribe, become a lobbyist or engage in metapolitics? 

Some of the people I admire most are the ones who totally rejects modern society altogether. They go out into the woods, and with their own sweat, blood and determination they create something new and unique beyond stiff conservative ideas and postmodern illusions. Anyone can adopt a set of ideas and thus “become part of a movement”, but to create something in the real world that both defies modernity and that is able to carry the weight of a whole tribe, it doesn’t just require ingenuity, it takes grit, discipline and organization. The wolves of Vinland and operation werewolf is the best example I know of this. 

I also believe that tribalism is something more rooted in human psyche, much more than globalism, occidentalism or even nationalism. And no matter If we live in a society based on the free market or in a socialist regime, in our hearts our loyalty will always remain around our family, close friends and the local community, all that is much closer to a tribe than anything else. 

Like Jack Donovan points out in his book “the way of men” even incredibly large organizations like the US-army are built on many much smaller units – bands of brothers, units that are small enough to create the kind of loyalty that can stand the test of situations revolving around life and death, but still big enough to carry itself like an organization in and of itself. A tribe is small enough so you don’t have to pretend to care about every single member of it, but it is still big enough to run a small society, city or municipality. 

Cast a vote without relying on it. 

I wholeheartedly embrace tribalism as a worldview, however I don’t exclude that I am, no matter If I like it or not, entangled in processes and interests that go beyond or outside the tribal ones. And it doesn’t cost me much to cast a vote every four years on a party that atleast pay lipservice to the interests of my people and that in some small way can halt or at least slowdown the displacement of my kind. So that just maybe my children wont have to grow up as a hated minority in what used to be their native homelands. I now have children in Sweden and Italy, countries that are both besieged by cultural marxism and its symptoms of open borders and ethnomasochism.

Metapolitics in practice. 

But on the arena of ethnic struggles I realize that what matters most in the long run is not partypolitics but metapolitics and culture. Therefor in my own small way I try to contribute in any way I can to the cultural struggle, by writing about culture in a pro-European perspective on my blogs in Swedish, English and soon also in Italian. By teaching my children about the their true history beyond the simplified and often falsified versions of Hollywood, and most important of all through leading by example in the best of my abilities by demonstrating a life of pride, strength and purpose. Except for this I hope to be able to create something resembling an authentic tribe as well, or atleast join one, after all, one thing doesn’t have to exclude another.

Being precent or living in the moment? 

Last week I burned my hand quite severely. It was an accident while cooking, I was tired, stressed, I was suffering from the flu, and I tried to do several things at once. The pain was immense but it was entirely my own fault, I wasn’t present enough to notice that I hadn’t turned of the stove. However painful it can seem to have an accident like this, it is nothing compared to the suffering caused by not being present in the long term. Let me explain.

Going to McDonalds can actually be quite a pleasurable experience, if your very hungry and not aware of the crap they put in their “food”. But if you go to McDonald’s everyday for maybe ten years and you start to suffer from diabetes and a high blood pressure as a result of it, it is actually the long term equivalence of me burning my hand on the stove. Because you weren’t aware of the long-term consequences of what you were eating in the present everyday for a long time, you caused yourself a lot of pain and possibly permanent damage to your health.

The false understanding of living in the moment. 

Today the concept of living in the moment have been commercialized and perverted beyond recognition. Now there are ads on television with modern-looking youngsters eating candy with a reassuring background voice saying “be in the moment”. You can hear some fat fuck at the bar telling his friend “hey man have another beer you gotta live in the moment” and so on. To be present does not equate with living frivolously. To be present is to be aware of cause and reaction as well as being attentive to what’s going on around you.

This concept is as stupid as the modern concept of YOLO (you only live once), I have heard people justify taking drugs with this motivation. Yes you only live once, so why not try to live as long and be as capable as possible so you can feel content with your life the day you will have to face the prospect of death.

Mindfulness means conscious presence. 

The concept of mindfulness have become very popular today with courses in mindful cooking, mindful sex, mindful studying and so on. In Swedish mindfulness have been translated into “Medveten närvaro” which means “conscious presence”. I prefer this term since it refers to its original meaning. If your really practicing Mindfulness on a consistent basis you don’t need special courses in mindful gardening, mindful masturbation or whatever, because you are trying to be mindful in everything.

The concept of mindfulness comes from Buddhism even if we can find similar techniques in Stoicism. Unlike what many people believe the Buddha did not mainly propose that his followers should meditate a few hours per day and then just go about the rest of their days mindlessly, he thought his students that their whole day should be a meditation. He told his students that they should meditate while walking, eating, having sex (if they werent monks) and even while taking a crap. To live in the present, to be mindful in its original context means to be aware of the realities of life, the laws of nature and most of all of death.

So be aware that life consists of the moment, that is all you have. Don’t numb yourselves with drugs or alkohol or television, that is not being in the moment that’s missing it. Life is short so make the best of it and remember – fucking YOLO!
