The title of this new blog is "Ourselves and Our Posterity". The word posterity isn't really used anymore but it has a powerful meaning. From Merriam-Webster's online dictionary...
Definition of posterity
1 : the offspring of one progenitor to the furthest generation
2 : all future generations
Or from Wiktionary
posterity (usually uncountable, plural posterities)
All the future generations, especially the descendants of a specific person.
The word posterity invokes an intergenerational sense of perspective that is so often missing in our world of immediate gratification and kicking the can down the road.
This word has special meaning for citizens of the United States, although I doubt that any but a select handful of people have ever heard or it or know why it is significant. The significance comes from the preamble to the U.S. Constitution. The preamble is not "law" per se, nothing legally binding is enumerated but what it does for the subsequent generations is tell us who wrote this Constitution, what purpose it seeks to fulfill and who it was written for. Here are the words of the preamble.
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.Usually the focus is on the middle parts about establishing justice, domestic tranquility, common defense, etc. but the opening and closing are critical. Who was the Constitution written by? We the people. The American people. A people of European ancestry and heritage, a people with a vibrantly "diverse" and sometimes tragic history but a people with a shared European culture and a shared faith. We wrote this unique document. Just as important, in fact far more important, is who it was written for. The Constitution was established to preserve and protect this nation for ourselves, i.e. the founders, and for their posterity, in other words future generations of White Americans of European descent.
They did not form a more perfect union to create a multi-cultural melting pot. The very idea is so ludicrous as to boggle the mind. This was always intended to be a nation of European Whites. That idea is repulsive to so many people today, sadly many of them White, but no one questions that Africa is full of African blacks or that Asia is overwhelmingly Asian or that South America is full of Hispanics of various sorts. Nor does anyone dare question whether those cultures are inherently valuable and worthy of preservation and celebration. Only the idea that Whites have a unique and valuable culture and ought to have their own homeland and future is abhorrent to our elite betters who control our media, entertainment and education.
That is the point of my work here, inadequate though it is for the task. Saving what is simultaneously by any measure the greatest culture and civilization in the history of mankind but is also infected with self-loathing and engaged in a massive scale cultural and racial suicidal self-genocide? How arrogant of me! Yet here I am. If I can inspire even one person to give this more thought, to shake off the shackles that keep our very thoughts captive, it is worth my time.
I understand that some of this language may seem to evoke the spectre of the (in)famous 14 words used in "White supremacist" literature and attributed to David Lane. If you are not familiar with that, here it is:
"We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."It is derived from a longer quote from Hitler's Mein Kampf and of course anything you can link to Hitler (but not Stalin or any other non-Nazi genocidal dictator) is literally cancer.
What we must fight for is to safeguard the existence and reproduction of our race and our people, the sustenance of our children and the purity of our blood, the freedom and independence of the fatherland, so that our people may mature for the fulfillment of the mission allotted it by the creator of the universe. Every thought and every idea, every doctrine and all knowledge, must serve this purpose. And everything must be examined from this point of view and used or rejected according to its utility.The association with Hitler makes the statement from Lane and Mein Kampf toxic to most and a source of trolling for some.
I refuse to scamper away in terror because a concept is something that can be linked in any way to Hitler, just as I won't cower from any mention of the Confederacy. I don't want to gas the Jews and I don't want to re-enslave the blacks. You won't find any 14/88 tattoos on me or a Nazi flag on my wall. I do care deeply about the future of my children, my people and my culture. The idea of nationality, identity, racial awareness, did not originate with the Confederacy or Hitler. They were rightly woven into the very fabric of the United States and we forget this and lose it to our immediate peril.
In the next few posts I plan on fleshing out what I am talking about and the issues that I think are critical to be discussed today as well as explaining my move to a new platform and perhaps reposting some material from the prior blog.
