At IDNL we work towards the dissemination of identitarian ideas in the Netherlands. Our inspiration comes from the identitarian movement that is flourishing all over the Western world. This movement however, is embedded in a broader vision, that the French thinker Guillaume Faye called ‘archeo-futurism’. It envisions a new blossoming of the Traditional ‘virtus’ (strength / character) in our ruined society, pointing to a future that integrates the old and the new, or to be more exact: the ancient and the futuristic. The essay below treats the identitarian movement both from the specific Dutch angle and from the archeo-futurist point of view.
in memoriam Pim Fortuyn
On the Threshold of Power
IDNL is the brand new Dutch representative of brand new international movement – the Identitarian Movement. This movement is now developing in both size and intensity at a historically unprecedented pace all across the Western world. Fed and carried forward by a new generation, it is already starting to have a decisive impact on the direction and tone of the entire public debate. To more clarify the place of IDNL within this larger Identitarian Movement it is necessary to define it with more precision.. This English-language version of this introduction, followed by a specification of the foundational principles of IDNL, serves to affirm the commitment of the Dutch Identitarian Movement to a vision it shares with its allies throughout Europe and the Anglosphere: a renaissance of Western Civilization under the aegis of authentic identity.
The origin of the Identitarian Movement must be sought in breach of contract of the Western ruling elites and the Western peoples, resulting in a dangerous – and now increasingly irreversible – loss of confidence. This breach of contract tends to exacerbate and magnify the approaching ‘Crisis of the Modern West’ to the point of what Jason Jorjani has termed the ‘World State of Emergency’. The trajectory of this crisis is determined by a number of converging existential threats to Western Civilization. The visibility and urgency of these threats are increasingly obvious to the Western peoples – and so is this the fact that their elites are implicated not only in an elaborate cover-up, but also in a deliberate betrayal. Anthropogenic climate catastrophe (global warming, seasonal changes, invasive species) is destroying the natural biotope of the Western peoples, but their elites are deliberately hastening it through the promotion of intensified consumerism (obsessive mass tourism, car ownership cult, spiralling consumer cycles). Technocratic transhumanism (biohacking, prolongevity, transgenderism) is undermining the physical nature of the Western peoples, but their elites are deliberately advancing it through psycho-social ‘deconstruction’ and medical-technological manipulation: sexual orientation, gender identity and natural body forms are dismissed as mere ‘life style’ options. Ethnic replacement (sui-genocide, Umvolkung) is threatening the historical core territory of the Western peoples, but their elites are deliberately promoting anti-natalistic policies domestically and neo-liberal ‘open borders’ internationally. Social implosion (hyper-individualism, disposable relations, extramarital procreation) is ‘deconstructing’ the societal cohesion of the Western peoples, but their elites are deliberately pushing an agenda of atheistic indoctrination and matriarchal legislation. Ever since the start of the ‘long march through the institutions’ of the soixante-huitards, this year exactly half a century ago, the baby boomer elite of the West has been gradually transforming itself into a totalitarian regime: it is now beginning to openly show its true face as a hostile elite. The Machtergreifung of this hostile elite is happening under our very own eyes in our very own countries in our very own time. Its ideology is philosophically based on an absurdly extremist form of Historical Materialism, characterized by militant secularism, social-darwinist neo-liberalism, narcissistic hyper-individualism and dogmatic culture-relativism. For convenience, this conglomerate ideology, largely submerged in sub-rational negative emotionalism and sub-conscious self-destructive impulses, will here be defined as Culture Nihilism.
The present power of the rationally universalist, emotionally cosmopolitan and operationally globalist hostile elite rests on trans-national structures and institutions that systematically evade sovereign national authority and authentic democratic control. These trans-national ‘spectral structures’ (‘international markets’, ‘international treaties’, ‘European monetary policy’, ‘European law’) and the ‘letter institutions’ (IMF, WTO, UN, UNHCR, EU, ECB, NATO) are effectively controlled by a tiny group of new global ‘overlords’, operating anonymously and above to law in the closed bubble of high finance cartels and industrial multinational corporations. The result is an intricately woven web of globally operating mafia gangs. In certain ways, the New World Order of Postmodern globalism resembles the Cosa Nostra, especially in terms of its informal structure and shadow state functionality. The true godfathers always operate behind the scenes, but they are represented by well-informed and smooth-talking consiglieri in renowned international universities, law firms and accounting firms. At the national level, their policies are implemented by nominally independent caporegimes: talented politicians and administrators who conform to the unwritten rules of their ‘old boys network’ and the subtle omertà of their fraternities. The present comatose state of the Western democracies, characterized by impenetrable political cartels, politically-correct media conglomerates and a cognitively dissonant consensus, can be traced back to the gradual infiltration and final take-over of the political and public life of the West by this globalist mafia. To maintain the façade of legitimacy, the appearance of parliamentary, judicial and journalistic autonomy is kept up at the national level, but effective policcy is consistently trans-national – and, above all, anti-national. In the long run, however, the hostile elite is bound to pay a high price at the national level, viz. a total and final loss of credibility and legitimacy. Counting from the start of the Postmodern Era (marked by the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Soviet Union and the Apartheid as well as the rise of the EU, the Euro and the World Wide Web) over a full generation has now passed – the old forms and the old discourse of the combined neo-liberal/culture-marxist dictatorship are now entirely outdated. What remains, are the totalitarian trans-national power structures, left to operate with impunity in the psycho-historical and social-cultural void of Western neo-matriarchy. This matriarchal void is characterized by a hedonist-orgiastic public climate and a sado-masochist inversion of all authentic forms of political hierarchy and social identity. Elsewhere the author has already pointed out the cultural-historical background and socio-cultural effect of the Western neo-matriarchyi – here it suffices to say that the rise of the Identitarian Movement can be understood as a socio-political reaction: a reaction against the totalitarian dictatorship of the globalist hostile elite and against the matriarchal conditioning on which its power is based.
The political birth of the Identitarian Movement can be dated to the years 2015-16: the time of the open Machtergreifung of the totalitarian matriarchy: the openly demophobic and extreme feminist election campaign of matriarch Hillary Clinton in America and the openly xenophile and extreme anti-nationalist ‘open borders’ campaign of matriarch Angela Merkel in Europe. With its va banque strategic decision to pursue openly totalitarian globalism and with its final abandonment of the disguise of national sovereignty and law enforcement the hostile elite of the Postmodern West showed its real face – but it erred in its timing. Entirely wrapped up in its own narcissist obsessions with ‘marketing’ and ‘public relations’ the hostile elite mistook the decennia-long lack of serious political and discursive resistance for a sign that the will to live and the instinct of self-preservation had been finally broken in the Western peoples. The hostile elite mistook its own mirror image – the politically-correct consensus of media and academic life – for reality. The result of this miscalculation was a politically fatal ricochet effect on both sides of the Atlantic: the British people voted for ‘Brexit’, the American people voted for Donald Trump, the Austrian people voted for Sebastian Kurz and the Italian people voted for the Five Star Movement. Even in Germany, reduced to the castrated pet of the New World Order by seven decades of anti-national indoctrination, the institutional status quo was broken: with the AfD an authentic nationalist opposition entered the Bundestag in strength. In the historical context of the thorough Postmodern nihilist-hedonist conditioning of the Western peoples, this political upheaval constitutes the equivalent of a classic popular uprising. Even in the silted-up canals of Postmodern Western ‘democracy’, obstructed by the decades-deep sediments of institutional corruption, political cartels and politically-correct media censorship, the wave of popular indignation is noticeable. Even in the stagnant ‘dead marches’ of the Dutch political landscape – perhaps the most tranquil garden pond of the Western hostile elite – tiny ripples are visible in the murky parliamentary waters. The ‘old populists’ of Geert Wilders Freedom Party (PVV), repeatedly and scornfully dismissed by the regime press, are making an electoral comeback. And, for the first time, they are joined by a patriotic ally in the Tweede Kamer, the Dutch House of Representatives: two stylish gentlemen of Thierry Baudet’s Forum for Democracy (FVD) join the parliamentary arena to introduce a civilized ‘alt-light’ – some hope an ‘alt-right’ – discourse. The Identitarian Movement is approaching political power – the Barad-dûr of the hostile elite is tottering. The demophobic cordon sanitaire of the political cartel, the smooth ‘business as usual’ of high finance and the cynical conspiracy of silence of the Lügenpresse can still artificially prolong the life of the hostile elite for some time, but they represent nothing more than desperate attempts at postponing the bankruptcy of hostile elite’s power institutions and the funeral of its entirely outdated worldview for the sake of ‘a few dollars more’. But the longer this ‘overtime’ lasts and the higher the emergency dykes are built against the incoming identitarian tide, the greater will be the catastrophic flooding that will eventually wipe away the Culture Nihilist order and the globalist hostile elite. Until that moment comes, identitarian thinkers and activists are well advised to come up with ideas to channel the coming storm surge and to salvage as much as possible of the rich cultural heritage of the West. The first indistinct outlines of the new world order that is situated at the far side of the final Crisis of the Modern West are beginning to become visible. They indicate the direction and meaning of the far greater historical revolution of which the Identitarian Movement is merely the harbinger: the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution.
The harbinger of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution
Everything is dark, as in the demonic netherworld below,
where furious nature forces dance on the tune
of the storm bird’s terrifying cry…
The storm bird cries out that wild weather is on its way…
– Rudy Vermeulen (translation by the author)
Elsewhere, the author has described the philosophical foundation and anagogic cultural-historical value of the approaching Archaeo-Futurist Revolution in more detailii – here it is important to consider the societal impact of this coming revolution. The Identitarian Movement is the avant-guard of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution: for the generation awaiting this revolution, it functions as a pioneer – and a ‘comforter’. The ‘comfort’ it offers is this: it announces the turning of the tides of history and the approaching end of the world of Culture Nihilism, doomed to sink into infamy and oblivion. The pioneering function of the Identitarian Movement is most obvious in the fact that it permanently dislodges the Culture Nihilist hostile elite from the ‘moral high ground’. The ideology of ‘enlightened’ universalism and ‘humanist’ cosmopolitanism on which the doubly neo-liberal/cultural-marxist hostile elite based its authority and credibility is ethically and morally bankrupt. The ‘ballast’ of ethical authority and moral credibility, casually jettisoned by the hostile elite’s during its ‘long march through the institutions’, is now lying abandoned in the street: merely picking up makes it the exclusive property of the Identitarian Movement. Now it is the Identitarian Movement that stands for the rights of indigenous peoples: for the rights of all peoples, including the Western peoples, to cherish their identity and to protect their place in the sun – without the compulsion of multicultural ‘diversity’ and without the manipulation of socio-cultural ‘deconstruction’. Now it is the Identitarian Movement that stands for the rights of the working class: for the right of young people to basic income security and reasonable living wages – without unfair competition by ‘labour migrants’ and without obligatory tax contributions to the cynical ‘asylum industry’. Now it is the Identitarian Movement that stands for women’s rights: for the right of girls and young women to be wives, mothers and grandmothers and not merely a convenient mass of cheap workers, docile consumers and obedient voters. Now it is the Identitarian Movement that stands for animal rights and bio-ethics: for a final elimination of barbaric atrocities of ‘ritual slaughter’ and ‘bio-industry’.
Thus, in a strange and wholly unexpected turn of events, it is the Identitarian Movement that inherits the long-abandoned original ideals of soixante-huit – and the duty to promote them in the public sphere and to implement them in the political arena. The unfulfilled promise of the utopian ‘universal reformation of mankind’, as symbolized by the ewige Blumenkraft and flower power of the ‘sixties’, now fall into the lap of the Identitarian Movement like a ripe fruit: it is now up to the Identitarian Movement to realize this promise in a realistic manner and to realistically implement it in the limited setting of each Western people separately, where it can be preserved in lived examples. In its capacity as a pioneer of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution the Identitarian Movement simultaneously embodies the function of ‘night watch’, awaiting the Golden Dawn. The Golden Dawn is this: the fulfilment of promises that are brand-new as well as age-old and the realization of possibilities that are brand-new as well as age-old. Above all, the realization of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution represents a meta-historical Catharsis. Thus, the Identitarian Movement can already now identify the basic ingredients of this Catharsis: Jubilee (‘collective debt forgiveness’ – an end to the merciless usury of the bankers’ dictatorship), Amnesty (‘collective pardon’ – an end to the exploitation of vulnerable people through hyper-democratic ‘party politics’ and collectivist ‘class struggle’), Manumissio (‘slave liberation’ – the humane repatriation of guest workers and refugees), Gaia-principle (‘bio-ethical revolution’ – the end of industrial ecocide and bio-industrial horror) and Purification (ritual cleansing – the re-dedication of desecrated holy places). The resulting restitutio in integrum implies the fulfilment of the doubly Christian and Faustian destiny of the Western peoples: a living enactment of self-surpassing archetypes. The journey towards this sublime end destination has started for the Identitarian Movement – also in the Netherlands. It is up to the young people of the West to make the journey of which the soixante-huitards dreamt, but which they never started. It is up to the génération identitaire of the West to set an appropriate course.
And the ship went out into the High Sea and passed into the West, until at last on a night of rain [there was] a sweet fragrance on the air and… [a] sound of singing that came over the water. And then… the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, white shores and,
beyond them, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
In hoc signo vinces
Signs of the Golden Dawn
In its capacity as a pioneer of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution and of night watch of the Golden Dawn the Identitarian Movement is obliged to conform itself to the archetypal symbols of the Western Tradition – and to re-conquer them. Above all, this means that it is obliged to appropriate the boreal symbol of cyclical rebirth par excellence: Sol Invictus Augustus. In this symbol, the glorious return of the Invincible Sun equals the redeeming ‘Return of the King’: the natural (astronomical) cycle of dark and light is associated with the cultural (historical) cycle of chaos and order. In the ancient Indo-European Tradition, the symbols of Helios and Sunburst represent the restoration of the authentic authority of the legitimate Katechon. Thus, the ancient Iranian Derafsj-e Kāvīān is still found in the contemporary standard of the president of Indo-European Tajikistan. After every cosmic night of lawlessness, the return of the Katechon ensures the restoration of the Nomos. Elsewhere, the author has described the relevance of the principles of Katechon and Nomos for the only worthy aim of the Identitarian Movement, viz. the rebirth of Western civilization.iii Here it will suffice to say that the victory of the sun over the night symbolically equals the victorious implementation of a transcendentally sanctioned Law in the immanent realm, i.e. the conquest of primordial chaos by heavenly order. The motive of this cosmic battle is elaborated in the myths of all Traditional cultures: it is the subject of scientific cultural-anthropological studies through the binary opposition male/sun/white/north:female/moon/black/south. In the present Crisis of the Modern West this ancient motive of cosmic battle is rapidly resurfacing at the partially converging fault lines of patriarchy-matriarchy (male:female), Christianity-Islam (sun:moon), Caucasian-non-Caucasian (white:black) and First World/Third World (north:south). For the Western Identitarian Movement, a correct positioning in this multi-faceted conflict depends on the reactivation of the archetypal Indo-European symbols of cosmic power and supernatural identity. Given the naturally conservative and sober nature of the Dutch people and given its Christian civilization history, IDNL chooses for a stylized black and white and historically Christianized version of the Sunburst.
The first letter pair of IDNL does not only refer to ‘identity’, but also for a new concept of this identity: a new ‘idea’ about ‘identity’ – and about its consequences. Thus, IDNL must refer to a societal reformation in conformity with all authentic forms of identity: a proper place for natural identity (gender, age, talent) and cultural identity (caste, religion, language). And above all, it must refer to a societal re-appreciation of our Dutch identity, which is a doubly natural-cultural identity because every ethnicity is characterized by bio-evolutionary as well as cultural-historical forms of expression. Thus, the second letter pair of IDNL refers to Dutch-ness as an authentic identity. This authentic Dutch-ness is something entirely different than the empty ‘Dutch-ness’ of the faceless homo aeroporticus with a convenient travel document to commute between his Scheveningen penthouse, his Long Island timeshare villa, his Tuscany holiday home and his Maldives weekend spot. It also is something entirely different than the counterfeit ‘Dutch-ness’ of the fraudulent a beau mentir qui vient de loin ex-‘refugee’ who uses a fake name and a fake birth date in a travel document that is immediately used to travel back to the country from which he ‘escaped’ in order to arrange Dutch residency for the rest of the clan. It is emphatically not the parking permit model ‘Dutch nationality’ of the neo-liberal hostile elite. Authentic Dutch-ness is more than paper citizenship en who does not know what it is – who does not feel and live it – is no (longer a) Dutchman. We respect all those others that live in our country but have another birth nationality and those of their descendants that can claim another nationality: we encourage them to be who they are and they are allowed to be proud of it – in their own communities. But we do not respect those indigenous ‘Dutchmen’ that do not recognize, feel and live their own Dutch-ness. Indigenous ‘Dutchmen’ that experience themselves as mere ‘world citizens’, ‘Europeans’ or ‘nothing’ are either part of the trans-national, cosmopolitan and oikophobic hostile elite – or simply lost. As far as we are concerned, the first group is free to leave and never return – preferably after restitution of the huge profits they have made at the expense of the Dutch people. The latter group, however, may – in good time – apply for a professional detox therapy for ex-Social Justice Warriors. Perhaps then they will learn an ancient truth: There is only one real vulgarity: to reject being who we are (Nicolás Gómez Dávila). Perhaps then they will recognize the vulgarity of the camp followers of the hostile elite: the sado-masochistic transgender activist, the permanently resentful professional feminist, the militantly atheistic pseudo-intellectual, the politically-correct self-censoring journalist.
In the final analysis, is up to the Dutch people to decide when it is time to free itself from the hostile elite and its Culture Nihilist ideology. Until then, IDNL is duty-bound to create alternative perspectives, so that the Dutch people may know that there still exist other ideas and powers. Whether or not the one who sows the seed will see the harvest cannot be predicted, but it is reasonable to assume that finally our patient and meek people will demand back its inheritance. The question is whether this demand will come in time and whether it will be enforced in time. In this regard, simple faith in the future of the Dutch people – a self-assured stance against intellectual ‘deconstruction’ and psyop manipulation – will be decisive. As it is written in Holy Scripture:
…for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
– Matthew 17:20
In Occupied Territory
The most effective power tool that is at the disposal of the hostile elite is its status as a trans-national occupying power: its rule is based on a trans-national network of institutions and structures that allows it to override national sovereignty and democratic control. One of the clearest symbolic expressions of the occupied status of the Western nations is the New World Order’s ‘European flag’: the flag of twelve golden pentagrams on a blue field that is flying next to and over the Dutch flag on all governmental buildings. It is the visible expression of the largely invisible reality of occupation, similar to how the Tricolore and the Hakenkreuzflagge flew over the Netherlands during the French and German occupations. In conformity to this reality all vital attributes of the modern nation-state have been surrendered: the national borders have been abolished by ‘Schengen’, the national currency has been abolished by the ‘Euro’, the national economy has been abolished by ‘global trade’, the national law has been abolished by ‘European law’ and ‘international treaties’ and the national defence forces are under ‘allied control’. The globalist dictatorship of the hostile elite has systematically delegated executive power to trans-national artificial constructs that are supposed to replace the amputated attributes of the nation-state: ‘Frontex’, ‘ECB’, ‘IMF’, ‘WTO’, ‘European Commission’, ‘UN’ en ‘NATO’. The inevitable result is barbaric invasion (‘labour migration’, ‘refugee settlement’, ‘family reunification’), economic slash-and-burn (de-industrialization, outsourcing, privatisation), neo-liberal exploitation (high finance dictatorship, institutionalized usury, fiscally-enforced inter-ethnic wealth redistribution), administrative disorder (‘small government’, ‘liberalization’, ‘de-regulation’), social dislocation (demographic implosion, ethnic strife, endemic criminality) and cultural ‘idiocracy’ (academic ‘internationalization’, artistic ‘counter-culture’, semi-analphabetic ‘infotainment’). The most tangible effect of this occupation reality is ethnic replacement, i.e. the systematic reduction of the indigenous Western peoples and the systematic colonization of their homelands by non-Western mass-immigration. The indigenous population is ‘cropped’ through culturally-selective anti-natalistic social policies (hedonist-sexualized indoctrination, state-subsidized anti-conception, matrifocal-matriarchic legislation) and anti-social income manipulation (disproportionate taxation of breadwinners, subsidized single-motherhood, tributary status for abandoned husbands). At the same time, the immigrant population is constantly inflated not only through import-brides and family-reunification, but also through culturally-selective pro-natalistic subsidies. The immigrant population is not only given undeserved access to indigenous social support networks (medical facilities, social benefits, family allowance), but also to supplementary resources unavailable to – but paid for by – the native population (‘housing priorities’, ‘civic integration courses’, ‘refugee scholarships’). Over the years preferential treatment and affirmative action that facilitates this colonization program have taken on outright perverse forms. As indigenous senior citizen facilities are closed down, immense ‘refugee’ facilities are financed from public funds. As hard-working indigenous young families must wait for years to obtain subsidized housing, permanently-unemployed ‘refugees’ are given priority access to top-location housing in the inner cities. As indigenous citizens are forced to walk the financial and administrative tight-rope of repressive bureaucracies, hordes of raping, thieving and cheating ‘refugees’ walk between the raindrops of a chronically under-staffed police, a deliberately lax immigration service and a toothlessly demented legal system.
Domestically, this state of affairs is covered up by the feminizing brainwash of educational indoctrination and the purposeful dumbing-down of media propaganda, fed by the hostile elite’s Culture Nihilist ideology and resulting in a de facto cultural-relativist ‘state religion’. ‘Civil nationalism’ is an intrinsic part of this package: a poisonous cocktail of neo-liberal ‘calculating citizenship’ and cultural-marxist ‘world citizenship’. The Culture Nihilist ingredients of ‘civil nationalism’ create an anti-national acid that burns through all forms of ethnic identity: the bio-evolutionary element is destroyed by ‘homoeopathic dilution’, the religious element by militant secularism and the linguistic element by profit-driven ‘internationalization’. As the ‘commoners’ of indigenous European population sink into the socio-cultural quack mire of the urban-hedonist stasis and psycho-historical trance that are the inevitable results of the sub-intellectual and anti-rational Culture Nihilist discourse, the ‘long march through the institutions’ of the hostile elite is nearing its final destination. The soixante-huitards babyboomers and their matriarchal-immigrant heirs are able to launch a final Griff nach der Weltmacht. According to their new Reglen für den Menschenpark the ‘common people’ – and the entire indigenous population of the West – is checkmated: the institutional ‘democratic mandate’ of the hostile elite and the dominant humanist ‘anti-discrimination’ discourse preclude all effective resistance within the existing power ‘frame’.
Even so, the occupation regime of the hostile elite is far from stable: the institutional ‘democratic mandate’ and the humanist ‘anti-discrimination’ discourse are transparent illusions that are increasingly meaningless to the indigenous populace. There, it is understood that democracy is dead – the ‘common people’ no longer trust the ‘democratic’ process. In the Netherlands the opposition – Wilders’ ‘populist’ Freedom Party and Baudet’s ‘alt-light’ Forum for Democracy – have provided many in-depth analyses of the political cartel and of the secret monster alliance between the neo-liberal ‘right’ and the regressive ‘left’. These have their uses, but the fact is that the ‘common people’ are already fully awake to the realities on the ground: they know they have been betrayed by their elite. The clearest demonstrations of the systematic electoral sabotage of their parliamentary democracy through the import of hundreds of thousands of non-native voters are the daily spectacles of a Moroccan citizen being addressed as ‘chair-person’ and of a Turkish lobby-group being tolerated as a ‘political party’ in the House of Representatives. The legitimacy of the present ‘government’, which has installed itself after the farcical elections of March 2017 with the slimmest possible majority, merely exists on paper. A never-ending stream of scandals (the ‘fake news’ affair of ‘Lying Dutchman’ Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra, the cover-up of the ‘corporate dividend’ affair by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the Third World-level ‘penthouse affair’ of parliamentary government-prop Alexander Pechtold) has deprived it of the last vestiges of credibility in less than a year’s time. Its consistent inability to self-correct proves that the ruling hostile elite has opted for a desperate Flucht nach vorne – its zombie-like transformation from ‘government’ to regime has begun. This explains symptoms such as the abolition of the consultative referendum (in fact a cutting of the last anchor lines of democracy) and the introduction of the ‘security services’ bill (in fact a formal transition to an undisguised police state). Thus, the national caporegimes of the globalist occupation power finally drop their masks and show their real faces as traitors: they have betrayed their country and their nation for ‘a fistful of dollars’. Thus, the standing of our ‘government’ is, slowly by slowly, reduced to zero: as an occupation regime it is now openly falling into the role of the banana republic dictator that robs his country, the cruel stepfather that abuses his defenceless stepdaughter and the false shepherd that opens the sheep-fold to the wolves.
E pluribus unum
One Nation under God
The metapolitical aim of IDNL is: the protection, restoration and renewal of the Dutch identity. The strategic premise of IDNL is: the fact that the Dutch people are an organic unit and that the shared interests of the community must prevail above the interests of its constituent parts. The ‘divide and rule’ policy by which the political cartel of the hostile elite has torn apart our nation for many decennia must end. To this end, the various divisive issues by which the hostile elite has sought to splinter the nation must be shown for what they are: chimaeras without substance. Here, the most important of these issues should be addressed:
(1) For IDNL the difference between educated and un-educated, consistently emphasized and exploited by the hostile elite to ridicule and delegitimize its patriotic-nationalist opponents, is an entirely artificial problem. This difference is merely a reflection of the different natural and cultural roles of different elements that necessarily exist within each larger ethnic organism: these different roles are expressed in complementary aspects of labour specialization and social functionality. For IDNL the must humble manual labourer that obeys the natural duties that come with gender, caste, family and religion alliance is equally valuable to his most high-born, most prosperous and most talented fellow-citizen – and far superior to the arrogant ‘world citizen’ that looks down on his own people because he had a better education and because he has more money.
(2) For IDNL the difference between the ancient castes – Monarchy, Nobility, Church, Academy, Patricians, Commoners – is also an entirely artificial problem. Again, this difference reflects a natural hierarchy and a necessary division of tasks. To effectively function and move forward as a people it is important that everybody accepts the reality of birth differences and does his own work in his own place. In this regard, it is of vital importance to utterly reject the neo-liberal and neo-socialist ideology of ‘class struggle’ as an ideology of envy and jealousy. That ideology is utterly unnatural because: People only truly admire what cannot be earned: high birth, talent and beauty (Nicolás Gómez Dávila). It is important that everybody develops himself in his own station according to his own nature: according to his birth privileges and talents – and that everybody is respected for doing so. This means that the King should do what he is supposed to do: rule the nation – without the hostile elite first degrading him to an ornamental decoration and then accusing him of parasitical uselessness. This means that the Nobility should do what it is supposed to do: protect the nation in the Royal Army and the Corps Diplomatique – without cosmopolitan ‘internationalism’, rejecting decadent dolce far niente. This means that the Church should do what it is supposed to do: teach and cure the nation in education, hospitals, shelters and holy service – not as a hyper-altruistic aberration for illegal aliens but in dedication to its own people. This means that the Academy – higher education, scientific research and high art – should do what it is supposed to do: uplift, inspire and build the nation – without degenerating into a lucrative job centre for politically-correct management consultants, resentful feminists and ambitious ‘affirmative action’ creatures. This means that the Patricians should do what they are supposed to do: create wealth for the nation in trade and industry – without descending in ‘free for all’ globalism and a morbid ‘offshore’ mentality. This means that the Commoners should do what they are supposed to do: procreate the nation through work and family life – without losing itself in the laziness, arrogance and vice that come with dishonourable money and disposable relationships.
(3) For IDNL the difference between ‘classes’ – rich and poor – is also an entirely artificial problem. Again, this difference stems from a natural condition that is as old as humanity itself: it is a difference of fate that we are meant to make bearable for each other by avoiding distasteful extremes – and by not begrudging each other our place in the sun. In this regard, the Dutch nation can build upon its natural tendency to solidarity, modesty and fairness: with these characteristics, it is easily able to correct extreme imbalances by generous charity and effective social support systems. Our social security system is proof of this ability, but it must be reserved for the nation that has created it and that supports it. This obliges us to an emphatic rejection of the prevalent neo-liberal and pseudo-Calvinistische social-darwinism: a rejection of the ‘race to the bottom’ between our workers and cheap ‘labour migrants’, a rejection of the neglect of our elderly and sick for the benefit of ‘asylum seekers’, a rejection of the ‘investment portfolios’ and ‘real estate exploitation’ of the baby boomer at the expense of our young people, who are facing unpaid ‘internships’, endless ‘temporary work’ and an impenetrable housing market.
(4) For IDNL the difference between worldviews – religious affiliations, philosophical doctrines, political preferences – is once again an entirely artificial problem. The great diversity of opinion that is characteristic of the Netherlands since its independence is a fixed feature in our national history: the Dutch people have a particularly individualistic national character and a strong tendency to non-conformist thought experiences – where two Dutchmen come together there will be (at least) three opinions. In fact, the birth of the Dutch nation dates back to a popular mass movement that overthrew a foreign-imposed religious dictatorship: the Beeldenstorm, or Great Protestant Iconoclasm, of 1566. In this regard, it should be noted that the sum of all individual worldviews and opinions provides the Netherlands with a valuable critical mass of useful (back-up) options and (reserve) positions that guarantee an adequate response to present and future problems. The recent inflation in political parties is proof of this: after the regular establishment parties formed a de facto cartel, immediately a plethora of interest groups found their way into politics to address necessary and urgent problems. Thus, the Socialist Party (SP) constitutes a direct reaction to the structural poverty and youth unemployment that was created by the early neo-liberalism under Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers (1982-94) and the betrayal of social democracy under Prime Minister Wim Kok (1994-2002). Thus, the Pensioners’ Party (50+) is a direct reaction to the cowardly assault on pensions and health care of defenceless elderly people under Jan Peter Balkenende (2002-10). Thus, the Green-Left Party (GL) and the Animal Rights Party (PVDD) are a direct reaction to the studiously ignored – because expensive – but increasingly dramatic tragedies of environmental degradation, climate change and bio-industrial inhumanity. In this context, the Identitarian Movement is bound to respect – and capitalize on – the plurality of worldviews prevalent that prevails in Dutch society: our new monopoly on ethics obliges us to do so. Within our movement, all these truths and preferences must be respected, but always within the framework of the common interests of all Dutchmen, viz. the preservation of our way of life and our shared identity. Within this framework freedom and democracy – the key slogans of the power establishment – have their rightful place, but only in the right doses. Absolute freedom and absolute democracy are deadly poisons for every authentic community. Thus, IDNL rejects the absolute freedom and the absolute democracy that are preached by the false prophets of the hostile elite as empty promises that only serve to subject the Dutch nation to globalist exploitation (the bankers’ regime imposed by the Prime Minister’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, VVD) and nihilist anarchy (the lawless matriarchy imposed by governing coalition partner Democrats 66). Thus, IDNL also rejects the absurd hyper-altruism of politically-correct ‘tolerance’, which allows nihilist-inspired Umvolkung and islamistically-inspired terrorism to ravage our country. The present system media and justice system, which wilfully neglect, censor and abet these outrages, must be reformed and the political culprits will be held responsible. As far as IDNL is concerned, the ‘hard core’ of the hostile elite – those that are willingly and knowingly driving our country and our people into the abyss with their falsehoods and machinations – is no longer part of our nation.
Dura lex sed lex
Strength and Justice
There are a number of urgent societal problems that of particular interest to the Identitarian Movement: the anthropological climate catastrophe that is destroying our natural biotope, the trans-humanist technology that is threatening our human nature and the social implosion that is ‘deconstructing’ our families and communities. But by far the most urgent of these problems is ethnic replacement. Assuming a continuation of the present speed of the process of Umvolkung – a combination of indigenous sui-genocide and mass-immigration – it is likely that within a few decades the Dutch people will simply become extinct. Thus, the problems of climate change, trans-humanism and social implosion are of secondary concern. Immediate and far-reaching measures are necessary to halt the ethnic replacement of the Dutch people: without the restoration of authentic political authority and the exercise of effective state-power the process of Umvolkung will soon reach the point of no return. This makes the resolution of the ‘ethnic question’ the highest priority of IDNL. Due to its ethical prerogative, IDNL rejects all forms of racist extremism and all notions of facile Endlösung. In this regard, it is important to note that IDNL not only views ethnic violence and contempt as ethically reprehensible, but also as pre-eminently un-Dutch. IDNL promotes a resolution of the ethnic question that is realistic as well as effective, but without undue impatience and injustice. Finding such a solution requires a precise analysis of the exact cause and nature of the ethnic problem.
For IDNL law-abiding foreigners that are legally residing in our land are not our enemies: our enemy is the hostile elite that is abusing the powers of the state to replace our people by engineering irreversible mass-immigration. The hostile elite is using the alien population influx to drive down labour costs, to drive up consumer prices and to shift the electoral balance: it is using mass-immigration against us. Even so, these foreigners are not to blame for this situation: to the hostile elite they are nothing more than a new group of slaves: they constitute a new class of serfs that is bound to cling to the hostile elite, because they owe their little piece of bread and their little corner near the fire entirely to the hostile elite. Deep inside, they cannot but hate their masters: they feel they are slaves – public debates about the Netherlands’ ‘slavery past’ and its ‘Black Pete’ culture prove it. Uprooted from their motherlands and their culture, they cannot but cling to their last remnants of original identity: the children and grandchildren of the slaves are rediscovering their roots in their slave ghetto’s – movements such as ‘Islamic Revival’ and ‘Black Power’ prove it. Deep inside, they experience the hostile elite in the same way that we experience it: as the enemy. In this sense, they are better served by IDNL than by the present power establishment, because we respect the real identity of these foreigners – and we invite them to hold on to it and to re-appreciate it. For us, a Moroccan who knows himself to be a Moroccan and who experience his Moroccan-ness in an authentic manner is far superior to a faceless ‘socially integrated’ individual that is neither meat nor fish – an individual who does not who he is, where he comes from and where he is going. If a proud Moroccan man realizes that he is a guest among our people, if he behaves like a guest and if he does not slyly try to steal the possessions, the daughters and the house of his host nations, then he has our respect as a guest. With this maxim – respect and strictness – IDNL conforms to Identitarian Movement’s new monopoly on the public ethical discourse. Our values and norms are far superior to those of the hypocritical Gutmensch jelly-fish of Post-Modern Culture Nihilism, i.e. the politically-correct hostile elite that structurally refuses to respect the authentic forms of identity: gender, age, talent, caste, religion, vocation. The hostile elite knows only ‘deconstructive’ levelling, Entfremdung and anomie.
It needs to be said: the many foreigners that legally reside in our country are our guests – mostly uninvited guests, but guests nevertheless. We are obliged to behave like civilized hosts: with courtesy and hospitality where possible – and with a clear set of rules and strong corrective action where necessary. Guests must behave like guests: not only by conforming to house rules and by respecting his hosts, but also by showing modesty and gratitude for the accommodation and food that they are offered. To the extent that they do not want or cannot do so, they must leave – and if they do not leave of their own accord, we are within our rights to remove them from our house. To the extent that they behave like modest and grateful guests, they are welcome to stay. A Dutch ‘welcome’ for a prolonged stay means this: that the house guest behaves well, works for a living and shares in the common household expenses. Those foreigners presently residing in our country and unwilling to conform to these rules will have to pack up their things and leave, preferably on the basis of voluntary repatriation – their departure can be facilitated through modest travel and start-up allowances, so that they resume their lives in their countries of origin. The costs of these allowances can easily be born if we deduce them from the future financial burden of their continued presence in our land – and with the ‘development aid’ that presently flows into the pockets of Third World kleptocrats. These allowances are a valuable investment: they save us the far greater future costs of ‘business as usual’ – a fraction of the combined future costs of never-ending stipends, welfare fraud, endemic vandalism and counter-terrorist measures – and they allow repatriated foreigners to look back with gratitude and to look forward with confidence. IDNL does not intend to launch a macabre re-run of ‘trains to the east’, but rather to provide comfortable ‘air travel to the south’. In this regard, it should be noted that – in accordance with the ethical premise of IDNL – every group of foreigners will be treated according to its particular situation. A widow from the former Dutch East Indies that had to flee for her life after Indonesian independence cannot be treated in the same way as a fake refugee. A hard-working Chinese entrepreneur who has been paying high Dutch taxes for decades cannot be treated in the same way as a ‘returning’ jihad fighter. A decent Surinamese grandmother who has fed and washed Dutch pensioners during all her working life cannot be treated in the same way as a drug criminal with two passports. Accordingly, and in descending order of historical rights, we can make a first draft of five distinct groups:
(1) ‘Ex-colonials’ (former Dutch East Indies residents, Chinese, Moluccans, Surinamese and Antillians), i.e. those people that came to the Netherlands from its former colonial territory before and immediately after independence, have unconditional residence rights. To the extent that they do not themselves wish to return to their ancestral land with a proper allowance or to completely assimilate into the Dutch populace, they will be allowed to constitute separate national groups with their own specific rights, facilities and neighbourhoods in the Netherlands. (2) ‘Guest workers’ and ‘labour migrants’, accompanied by their families and off-spring, will return to their own countries when they are no longer working (unemployed, disabled, pensioned): they can take their savings and they will receive an appropriate stipend. (3) ‘Refugees’ – a group that largely obtained residency status in defiance of international treaties and against our national interests – will be re-examined with the full vigour of the law and, when found to no longer qualify, repatriated together with their families and off-spring with a basic stipend. (4) Within the listed groups there will be a small number of individuals that have truly seamlessly integrated into the Dutch nation through their family ties and working lives: these people will be given a chance to prove this through a highly selective ‘assimilation’ procedure. For non-Western foreigners this assimilation procedure will be very hard: they will have to take on new Dutch names, to prove a truly Christian or humanist identity, to pass a Dutch language test at a near-native level of command and to show an exemplary civic and employment record. (5) Even stricter will be the new rules that apply to foreigners that have willingly and knowingly outstayed their welcome: terrorists, extremists, criminals, fraudsters, rapists and illegals – they will be treated without mercy and deported without delay. As Scripture teaches us: Let justice be shewed to the wicked, yet he will not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord (Isaiah 26:10). For them there will be no ‘legal recourse’, no ‘humanitarian consideration’ and no ‘media sentimentality’: they will be throw out – the Dutch people has nothing more to say to them.
The foreigners that remain in our country as guests after the completion of this combined repatriation-assimilation-deportation program will be allowed to stay on the basis of the principle of ‘sphere sovereignty’, i.e. with their own rights, their own facilities and – to the extent this proves desirable – their own residential quarters. The ex-colonials, the economically active ‘guest workers’ and the few true refugees will be able to stay on with their own identities. For these remaining foreigners this means: voluntary segregation, with this caveat: repatriation, assimilation and deportation will remain options available as the mutual need arises. For the native host population this means: an end to the permanent financial burden and the unbearable social burden that result from the present stay of masses of ‘free rider’ aliens that cannot be assimilated and that cannot be made productive in our society. The rule of IDNL is: no penny and no hammer stroke for these ‘free riders’ as long as one homeless Dutchman lacks a roof above his head, as long as one Dutch breadwinner cannot maintain his family and as long as one Dutch girl has to prostitute herself. As Scripture teaches us: It is not meet to take children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs (Matthew 15:26). Another rule of IDNL is: we will have to strike fear in the heart of all terrorists, extremists, criminals, fraudsters and rapists – until they leave of their own accord.
The four-point program of IDNL regarding the ethnic question can be summarized as follows: (a) merciless deportation for the wolves in our sheep-fold, (b) smooth repatriation for foreigners that are not economically self-sufficient, (c) voluntary segregation for foreigners that are economically self-sufficient and wish to maintain their identity and (d) assimilation for a select group of meritorious foreigners. This is justice: it is justice and not opportunistic convenience that is the criterion by which IDNL proposes to resolve the ethnic question. It is obvious that these principles and rules will never be applied in any meaningful fashion as long as the hostile elite remains in power: the hostile elite will never give up the subsidies to the core elements of its ethnic replacement program – its ‘asylum industry’ and its ‘slave electorate’. This is why the first task of the Identitarian Movement will be to seek out the Achilles’ heel of the hostile elite: its pretended legitimacy – by exposing its outdated credibility and by providing an alternative discourse.
Ad astra per aspera
The Lodestar of the Flying Dutchman
It is clear that justice will remain a useless artefact in the curiosity cabinet of history as long as caricature matriarchs such as Minister of Interior Kasja Ollogren and Minister of Defence Janine Hennis are supposed to be ‘responsible’ for our security services and our armed forces. As long as our patient and meek people tolerate the thieving gang that the hostile elite has appointed as our ‘government’ and the self-serving doubly neo-liberal and cultural-marxist political cartel, Umvolkung will simply continue – irrespective of the ‘left’ or ‘right’ nominal alliance of its ministerial appointees. During every governmental term – irrespective of its ‘leadership’ by Prime Minister Kok (pseudo-Socialist), Balkenende (pseudo-Christian), Rutte or Dijkhoff (neo-liberal nihilist) – an extra immigrant population with the size of the city of Utrecht is channelled into our country: this is the reality of Umvolkung. The politically-correct establishment has permanently disqualified itself for further governmental responsibility by aiding and abetting this treason of the nation. On the future political stage, there is no longer a place for both: either the hostile elite stays and the people disappear, or the people stays and the hostile elite disappears into the dustbin of history. The increasingly arrogant demophobia and doctrinal oikophobia of the hostile elite show that the hostile elite is putting its money on the first option. It is up to the Identitarian Movement to prove the hostile elite wrong. There is still hope that the Dutch people will win – that we will win – because, as Prime Minister Rutte put it: there are more of us.
But this hope also has a deeper dimension: the depths of the Dutch people’s soul have not yet been fathomed. Throughout its remarkable history the Dutch people have proven to possess a remarkable staying power: it brought down the Spanish global empire, it humiliated the mighty sea power of England and it withstood the French Sun King at the height of his glory. The Dutch people are also able to survive the Crisis of the Post-Modern West and to hack a way to a bright future through all obstacles: it should only rediscover its true strength and throw in its full weight. But in the Dutch language the word for ‘future’, toekomst, is a feminine word: to conquer her, one should not wait too long – one should walk up to her and get to know her. The sensational rise of Pim Fortuyn, who nearly became Prime Minister in 2002 on the crest of a popular surge, has proven the fact that the Dutch people are dreaming of a future that is different than its wasted past and its perverse present. On that occasion, the hostile elite could only thwart this dream – and save itself – by a cowardly resort to political assassination. But the hostile elite cannot assassinate the whole people when it rises as one man inspired by one dream. A broadly supported and taboo-breaking wave of Identitarian Iconoclasm will tear down all the unholy idols of the hostile elite – including the clay-feet idol of ethnic replacement – in one breath. The mouldering house of the baby boomer hostile elite is about to collapse – a few firm kicks will bring it down. The message of IDNL, the storm bird of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution that is taking shape at the historical horizon of Western civilization, is this: the unsinkable Titanic of Culture Nihilism is irreparably doomed. The bulkheads of political cartel machinations and media censorship can buy the hostile elite some more time, but its fate is sealed. The ‘winds of change’ are rising and they are already filling the sails of the Identitarian Movement.
The time has come to plot a new course for the ship of the Dutch state, so that it may ride out the coming storm at a safe anchorage. The pirates that now hold its helm must be removed from the bridge: the pirates of the hostile elite will not let us return to our home port, but the imprisoned crew and passengers do not want to be sold into slavery either. The time has come for the captain (the Monarchy) and the officers (the Nobility, the Church, the Academy) and the crew (the Patricians and the Commoners) to rise up as one man, to throw the pirates overboard, to turn around the ship and to return to port. If the captain and the officers are held hostage, it is the duty of the crew to liberate and reinstate them. Even if this seems to be an impossible undertaking, we owe it to our women, children and grandchildren to make possible the improbable. This is the higher duty of basic human honour and dignity that brought the poor slaves of the Amistad to take over a vessel that was not even theirs – how much more right do we have to take back our own ship. We cannot give up our women, children and grandchildren into the hands of merciless pirates and cruel slave traders as defenceless widows and orphans. We call on all honourable Dutchmen to do their duty now – so that they will not be ashamed when they stand next to their brave ancestors in the Hereafter. History does not solve problems – it buries them (Nicolás Gómez Dávila): let us bury the regime together.
The goal of IDNL (Identity Netherlands) is to disseminate identitarian ideas in the Netherlands. We have founded a political party and organize meetings and lectures for politically engaged people. For more information, please contact us here.
