A Fine and Heroic service to Civilization

Concerning a closely related struggle, but in a different country and era and with different reference points, Georges Sorel gave advice that may be worth storing away for today’s British nationalists:

The danger which threatens the future of the world may be avoided if the proletariat hold on with obstinacy to revolutionary ideas, so as to realize as much as possible Marx’s conception. Everything may be saved if the proletariat, by their use of violence, manage to re-establish the division into classes and so restore to the bourgeoisie something of its energy: that is the great aim towards which the whole thought of men who are not hypnotized by the events of the day but who think of the conditions of tomorrow must be directed. Proletarian violence, carried on as a pure and simple manifestation of the sentiment of class struggle, appears thus as a very fine and heroic thing; it is at the service of the immemorial interests of civilization; it is not perhaps the most appropriate method of obtaining immediate material advantages, but it may save the world from barbarism.

George Sorel, Reflections on Violence, Ed. Jeremy Jennings: Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought (Cambridge University Press, 2004) p.85.

The political and even the democratic is no less the preferred method than it was before the race-replacers outlawed the BNP’s policy of being unapologetically White, but we must know that other means to our ends might one day become preferred or necessary.

Like Jefferson said, ‘The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.’
