Nationalism allows individuals of disparate and dubious quality to enter and move within its ranks. One only has to sit back and watch the numerous numbskulls and thugs who participate in street activism to see that many of these nationalists do not accord with the Aryan type that they espouse and idolise. In comparison to mainland Europe the majority of nationalists have no clear idea of what they are for, only a vague idea of what they are against. Levels of argument both verbal and written are shockingly poor and this enables their enemies to deride them for their lack of education and literacy.
English nationalism only ever seems to enjoy a boost when the indigenous masses feel unempowered and disenfranchised. In recent years with the onset of economic recession and ever increasing levels of migration nationalist groups have enjoyed an upsurge of interest but this interest and support is rather unstable as the masses tend to be rather fickle. One only has to reflect on the reversal of furtunes of the BNP to see that this is true. This is the problem with democracy and mass movements generally: They have a feminine quality to them.
History is not made by mass movements but by individuals of a certain quality. One only has to look at the NSDAP and how the National Socialist movement crumbled in Germany with the announcement of the death of Adolf Hitler. Very few held to the ideals of National Socialism because the majority were fellow travellers who clung to the coat tails of more powerful and better men. All too often nationalists seek validation for their own inferiority by trying to be part of something bigger, something greater than the individual which they can lose themselves within. This is the essence of a mass movement. One sees something similar to today in militant islamism.
Race is the material from which greatness may be moulded but it should not be seen as an end in itself for this is gross materialism. Race is not only a matter of biology but of spirituality for each race has its spirit and each spirit has its race. This is the essence of the Volksgeist. If the race dies then the spirit no longer has a vehicle, an efficient vehicle for its expression in the world of matter. If the racial spirit no longer inhabits a race then the race dies. the two are mutually inclusive. This is why a healthy folk must remain loyal to its spiritual roots, to its Gods. When the Aryan peoples adopted the semitic and alien religion of xtianity something died within them. In returning to our Gods we are attempting to revive that which is dying.
The vast majority of Europeans today are little more than cardboard cut outs of real human beings. Physically, mentally and spiritually out of shape I struggle to refer to these people as Aryans. They lack by and large an Aryan spirit for the Aryan spirit is dying within the European peoples. Most of these people appear to be oblivious to what is happening around them, concerned only about the latest technological gadgets, TV soaps, the next alcoholic beverage or foreign holiday. They have no understanding of who or what they are. When they die their essence will become a temporary shade, earthbound for a while before it dissolves and in time they will be utterly forgotten.
Out of Nordic man must emerge the Sonnenmensch, the Übermensch. This is the Task of the Ages. The enemy of the Sonnenmenschen attempt to do everything in their power to prevent this from becoming a reality so it is the responsibility of those who are awakened, who are not spiritually dead or stillborn to struggle through incarnation after incarnation to achieve the next phase in humanity: to overcome the human: man must overcome himself and become God!
"As they are frequently understood today, Nordic thought, Aryanism, the imperial idea, and the concept of a super-race are burdened with an interpretation entirely foreign to the great free breath of the corresponding primordial traditions. According to the Aryan primordial conception, the Reich is a metaphysical solar reality. The Nordic heritage is not semi-naturalistic, only conceivable on a blood-and-soil basis, but rather constitutes a cultural category, an original transcendent form of the spirit, of which the Nordic type, the Aryan race, and the general Indo-Germanic moral being are only outward manifestations. The concept of race itself, according to its higher traditional significance, cannot have anything in common with the rational idols of modern biology and profane science. Above all, race is a basic attitude, a spiritual power, something primal and creative, whose outer, tangible forms are only a last echo....(from the Introduction, Julius Evola's Political Endeavours in Men Among the Ruins)
