All together now

This is in response to a post by James Higham at Nourishing Obscurity 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 is powerfully aware of 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 those schoolgirls who 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 other 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 this idea – a bogus charity site to identify and expose the insiders’ quangocrats. It’s very good.

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 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?
