The following is an interview with Jean-Yves Le Gallou, a former French high civil servant, author, and identitarian activist. He was involved with the Nouvelle Droite intellectual movement as early as the 1970s before going on to join the Front National (FN). As a politician, he served as the secretary-general for the FN’s parliamentary group of 35 MPs in the National Assembly between 1986 and 1988, working closely with senior party leaders such as Jean-Marie Le Pen and Bruno Gollnisch, and was an FN Member of the European Parliament between 1994 and 1999. As such, he has been able to participate in and observe the French political scene, and in particular the struggles and travails of the Right, from a unique vantage point.

Since then, Le Gallou has been a relentless crusader for European awakening. He created the Polémia Foundation in 2002, a think-tank which focuses on denouncing the harmful effects of non-European mass migration and critiquing the biases of the French mainstream media. In 2014 Le Gallou and activists climbed Mount Olympus to found the Iliad Institute, an organization dedicated to transmitting European culture and civilization to the next generations. The Iliad Institute was created at the request of Dominique Venner, a noted identitarian historian, who had taken his own life the year before at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris in what Le Gallou calls a “sacrificial act.”

The Iliad Institute organizes five-week training sessions for about 30 cadres every year, covering various topics: philosophical debate, European history considered in the longue durée, geopolitics, criticism of the contemporary world, sports, and cultural struggle. It also organizes a large yearly conference near the National Assembly whose speakers include academics, historians, and journalists. This year’s conference, taking place on April 6, is entitled “Europe: The Time for Borders.”

* * *

According to your CV, you have been both a high civil servant and an FN elected official. Is that actually possible?

Yes, I was a civil servant both before and after working for the FN. That is the good side of the French system: you can have political or ideological activities and remain a civil servant. I had a bit of a double life after working for the FN. I was in charge of monitoring and evaluating other government services. We covered all kinds of issues: the environment, transport, civil protection, rescue services and IT modernization. Of course they kept me away from positions dealing with immigration but, anyway, in the current system I wanted nothing to do with them!

It was not always easy. Some colleagues may privately agree with you but as soon as you are among others political correctness’ wall of silence comes down. The System is maintaining itself through this kind of double-talk and double-think. For my part, I always quite clearly indicated what I thought deep down.

Freedom of opinion and thought is better protected in the civil service than in large companies. Unfortunately, this is beginning to change. I know a judge who now has problems because of his views, although his case is still going through the courts of appeal.

The Code du Travail [labor legislation] in theory protects politically-incorrect opinions. There is even a penal law which bans discrimination because of someone’s political views. Thirty years ago, I would say opinions were indeed protected. But today, in practice, the law only protects politically-correct opinions. Companies are becoming more and more totalitarian, they claim to defend “values,” and so will fire people for the wrong opinions even if they are good for business.

[Interviewer’s note: Several other nationalist or identitarian French politicians have also been high civil servants. These include Anne Kling, Henry de Lesquen, and Florian Philippot.]

The FN’s parliamentary delegation,1986
The FN’s parliamentary delegation,1986

Could you speak about the FN parliamentary group at the National Assembly, whose work you coordinated between 1986 and 1988? The presence of a large nationalist contingent (35 MPs) at the national parliament has been unheard of since!

It was a parliamentary group of a very high level, real top class people, with many graduates from the Grande Écoles. Our role was essentially that of a “tribune of the people”: monitoring, criticizing, and serving as a check on the government. The group was very present and was even heard. We were an effective watchdog. This serious work was a great boon to the FN’s credibility, which no doubt made it possible for Jean-Marie Le Pen to break through with almost 15% of the vote in the 1988 presidential elections.

[Interviewer’s note: for the 1986 elections, President François Mitterrand, a Socialist, in a Machiavellian move instituted proportional representation so as to divide the Right between conservatives and nationalists. This did not prevent the fall of his Socialist governmen. The traditional majoritarian system, punishing smaller parties of both left and right, was reinstituted in 1988.]

In Italy, there have long been electoral and even governmental alliances between nationalist and conservative parties. Yet in France, there seems to be an omertà. How were relations between the FN and conservatives in the 1980s?

A dialogue was possible with the mainstream right, with which we even had cordial relations privately. However, publicly it was impossible for them to take up one of our proposals even if they shared our views.

There were local electoral alliances between the FN and the mainstream right in Dreux [a town of 30,000 people to the west of Paris] in 1983 and in Marseille in 1988. Then it became impossible. Those conservatives who crossed the line and advocated any alliances with the FN were politically destroyed. In 1998, Charles Millon, who had been a conservative defense minister, became president of the Rhône-Alpes region thanks in part to the vote of FN regional councilors, who would not participate in his administration. This was then not an intimate alliance. But he was toppled soon thereafter anyway.

Why did nationalist-conservative alliances become impossible?

In France, such alliances were forbidden by a certain number of pressure groups who considered them unacceptable: the Grand Orient of France (a left-wing Masonic lodge), the CRIF (Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France), the so-called anti-racist groups, and the LGBT groups, working with the mass media. We were also opposed by the B’nai B’rith, usually a fairly discrete group, and even by the Conference of Bishops of France. All these forces fought against any possible alliance between the mainstream right and the FN, and tried to liquidate any politicians who were tempted.

The mass media and their demonization of dissenting politicians and thinkers are extremely important. The level of political correctness differs by country. In Italy there is more freedom of tone and thought. [Interior Minister] Matteo Salvini expresses views while in government which Marin Le Pen cannot express even in the opposition! I think the Italian press is more pluralistic. The press in France is made up of the State on one side and 10 billionaires on the other. Alternative media still represent perhaps only 1% of the influence of the mainstream ones.

Do you think Jean-Marie Le Pen – and notably his so-called dérapages (verbal excesses) – were responsible for the FN’s marginalization?

The conventional wisdom holds that the FN’s demonization was caused by Jean-Marie Le Pen’s supposedly anti-Semitic dérapages. Personally I don’t think so. Le Pen may have contributed to this demonization, but really the process of demonization was independent of this.

In fact, any person who criticizes immigration – at least in France, Germany, or Great Britain – will be demonized. The first man to be demonized in postwar Europe was Enoch Powell – a leading figure of Britain’s Conservative Party, a classics scholar, a brilliant man – who gave a speech opposing immigration and was politically destroyed as a result. There was no trace of anti-Semitism there.

Then there is the more recent case of Thilo Sarrazin in Germany, who though coming from the Social-Democrats, denounced immigration. His career was also destroyed. The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is also being demonized. As is the prime minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you oppose immigration, you will be demonized.

Jean-Marie Le Pen’s demonization began before his rough comments on World War II or the Jews [starting from September 1987]. The formal ban on alliances with the FN dates from 1986, whereas he was received by the World Jewish Congress in New York as late as spring 1987. On the flip side, Marine Le Pen has made great efforts to distance herself from what her father was criticized for and the results are basically marginal.

What was it like serving in the European Parliament from 1994 to 1999?

I feel very strongly that I am a European. We share the same civilization, challenges, and destiny as our European neighbors. However, the period in which I felt the least European was when I was in the European Parliament. It was a great globalist thingamajig with no European spirit.

At the National Assembly, the FN was at least part of the political game. In the European Parliament, we were 13 with the Vlaams Blok (VB, Flemish nationalists), but we counted for nothing. We were a voice in the wilderness.

Things may begin to change with the EU elections taking place this May. With the further breakthrough of nationalist parties, there may be a threshold beyond which the centrist parties will no longer be able to secure their majorities. Then we could begin to block things.

Jean-Marie Le Pen, Bruno Mégret, and Bruno Gollnisch. The bitter departure of Mégret and his followers in 1999 would prove debilitating for the party

In 1999, the FN experienced a bitter dispute between the followers of Jean-Marie Le Pen and those of his second-in-command, Bruno Mégret, which permanently split the party. You are among those who left with Mégret. Why did this split happen? I must admit I still don’t understand why it occurred.

That’s quite understandable! There was a personal component: a war between chieftains and Le Pen’s tendency to keep his seconds from growing. There was also a political component: no divergence on the substance – immigration, the EU – but on style. Mégret wanted to make the FN more palatable. There was also a disagreement on strategy. Le Pen did not believe engaging in local politics would be useful, whereas Mégret did.

For me, the main cost of the split was the fact that if the FN had begun establishing itself at the local level the party might control 60 or 80 town halls today. This could serve as a political springboard and the mayors could have done many things. The second cost was the purge that accompanied the split. The party lost many of its cadres and best elements. And those who stayed with Jean-Marie Le Pen were then purged by his daughter a decade later. Marine Le Pen’s personal management has been catastrophic. The FN has never recovered from these purges.

Poster for the Iliad Institute’s upcoming annual conference: “Europe: The Time for Borders.”

In the North-American Alternative Right, the question of European unity is a fairly divisive one. Some, like Richard Spencer, consider European unity to be a priority, a prerequisite to greatness, while others think that the contempt for national identity is symptomatic of White Americans’ lack of identity. What do you think?

This is a fairly complex issue. At the Iliad Institute, we stand for the defense of European identity and civilization. There is a civilizational unity in Europe. But among the elements of European civilization, there has been the development of the nations. The national identities are a part of European identity. It would be utopian to have the nations disappear, even though they share in a common struggle to defend their borders and civilization.

I don’t really support the narrow sovereignist discourse which is liable to cause problems between France, Germany, and Britain. I don’t think Brexit is very interesting. It has made possible the reduction of Polish immigrants, but not of Pakistanis, Afghans, and others coming from the rest of the world. I think Frexit would be the wrong struggle even if the European Union does not work today. The problem is not the institutions as such but their political and ideological orientation. Viktor Orbán as president of the European Commission, that would be something else!

We shared our vision of Europe – which is not the EU – in a video: “Neither Lampedusa, nor Brussels, be European!”, which has accumulated 5 million views. There have been 4.5 million hits in French and about 500,000 in other European languages. Significantly, the most popular non-French version was Hungarian with 161,000 views. By contrast, the English version has only 13,000 views, about half coming from the United States. That is quite remarkable given that Hungary only has a population of 10 million people!

There should be a total halt in immigration to Europe from different or incompatible civilizations. We Europeans should highlight and build upon our common civilizational heritage. And perhaps we should build a shared European historical narrative: just as there is a national narrative in France or Italy, we could have a European narrative which would be the story of our achievements and discoveries, and of the battles which we fought together to save Europe, notably in the 14 centuries of struggle against Islam. Only if Europeans remember who they are, their deep history, will they be able to reclaim their identity and destiny.

  1. This is largely correct. Petty nationalism has a been a bane of European survival. It should be discouraged in favor of White racial awakening and the recognition of the common civilizational identity (although in the European context, ‘positive’ ethnonationalism – recovery of ethnocutural specificities – should also be encouraged).

    I oppose the EU, but on purely tactical grounds, because it is comprised wholly of self-hating, auto-genocidal Whites. Le Gallou gets this: if the EU were headed up by nationalists, then it should be supported by nationalists/identitarians.

    The ultimate goal, however, is not merely immigration halting, but reversal. ALL nonwhites, not only Muslims, and including Jews, must be removed from all European soils (only diplomatic personnel should be allowed to remain). Anything less is a move towards white genocide.

    Recovery and transmission of European history and heritage is vitally important to post-liberal national and civilizational revivification, but never lose sight of the immigration invasion. If that is not stopped, the White race will one day find itself having been slow-motion conquered, with racial amalgamation and the erasure of culture to follow.

    It was a referendum in which a long standing consensus among the political class was clearly defeated. I think that shows that party politics is a dead end as far as reversing immigration goes. Michel Houellebecq says he only votes in referendums.

    The Iliad Institute was created at the request of Dominique Venner, a noted identitarian historian, who had taken his own life the year before at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris in what Le Gallou calls a “sacrificial act.”

    Venner committed a mortal sin, and in a revered Cathedral. It was an affront to Conservative Catholics that they will remember when his former associates expound their strategy of unity.

  6. Sarrazin’s career was not destroyed really. He chose to leave the Bundesbank because he felt that thus he would be less restricted or torn between opposing loyalties. So: He was not destroyed, but made a career move, which turned out to come along with incredible success. Sarrazin became the most successful writer on politics in post-war Germany. A well respected survey by the well-respected political monthly CICERO lists him as the fifth most influential intellectual in Germany – based mostly on hard facts such as quotations and mentionings in public etc.

  7. That is a gorgeous poster design. Of course it is French. It’s great that a few Frenchmen are fighting to preserve their beautiful culture. But if it’s anything like America, the Dali Llama’s struggles to preserve his native culture is celebrated by every 20-year-old French coed, sitting in the lotus position in honor of a campus speech by Tibetan activists, but it is automatic racism if a fellow, white countryman opposes mass-scale immigration, even on wage-undercutting economic grounds, much less by standing up for the integrity of Western cultural ways.

    College campuses used to be the most friendly places for the free exchange of controversial ideas. Now, apparently, they are the least tolerant. The private sector used to be the place where you suppressed your political views to avoid alienating customers, but that was back when instinct played more of a role in commerce, and the USA had more small businesses.

    Today, the genius overlords in the big corporate monoliths analyze every bit of data, right down to our bank accounts and family composition, concluding who is or is not okay to offend. They have concluded that the biggest number of potential big spenders are in the multicultural camp, so that group is endlessly courted and bowed to, with all manner of offensive-to-me speech tolerated. The anti-mass-immigration crowd is either silenced or vilified.

    The bots must have concluded that we lack money. When in small business for myself and in the businesses of others, I assumed that I did not know who had money, showing every potential customer the best possible product and price-down options if needed. Except in a few cases where customers made it clear they were open to it, and would not hold it against me, I never felt like I could impose my political beliefs on them since I was there to serve them. Today’s crusading globalists are rock-solid sure that the algorithms and the so-much-smarter-than-us-oldies, youthful PC preachers have everything figured out.

    They know what is best for us.

    And it is not the highest products of Western culture.

    There are cross-cultural influences in every nation’s culture, of course. There is some Chinese influence in the French applied arts, the chinoiserie, but no one critiques non-white people for celebrating their culture. No one calls it racism. Non-white countries are also above criticism for maintaining nearly 100% racial homogeneity, as in many Asian countries. And it is ludicrous for Muslims to critique whites for rejecting multiculturalism when so many of them cannot even tolerate one, tiny, non-Muslim nation in their midst: Israel. The Muslims of the Dark Ages era had more tolerant, pluralistic societies than many Muslim countries today.

    The, likely vain, attempts to stop Brexit has also further discredited politicians, our current political parties and the media. This has perhaps been as beneficial as Brexit itself.

    I would be in favour of some pan European institutions for cooperation between the nations, the EU is not this. Anyway maybe the next European elections will be beneficial.

    And it is ludicrous for Muslims to critique whites for rejecting multiculturalism when so many of them cannot even tolerate one, tiny, non-Muslim nation in their midst: Israel.

    It’s interesting that there are so many Zionists now in the alt-right, anti-immigration movement. Israel, after all, is nothing if not a tale of immigration run amok. A hundred years ago, there was no ‘Jewish state’ in Palestine, and only a relatively small number of (mostly) indigenous, non-Ashkenazic Jews. It was then overwhelmingly an Arab country, mostly Moslem and partly Christian. Given all that has happened there since, I dare say I understand perfectly why Palestinians are so ‘intolerant’ of Jewish settlement in their country!

  11. The irony of the European Union is that it actually uses anti-European sentiment as a tool to create something like a shared class identity among those who dominate it. Thus, it is not only anti-nationalist, but also anti-continentalist. Weird …

    On the flip side, Marine Le Pen has made great efforts to distance herself from what her father was criticized for and the results are basically marginal.

    It’s obvious that Le Gallou doesn’t like MLP very much, which is his right. But that statement strikes me a way off base. Didn’t she get something 34% of the popular vote in 2017, compared with her father’s 18%? That’s nearly a 90% increase–a lot better than “marginal”!

    That being said, I think the FN can and should do better. MLP pandered too much the Zionists, hoping they would temper their criticism of her, and it clearly didn’t have that effect. I may not be an expert on the country, but I really don’t think the Frenchman on the street really cares that much what CRIF thinks anyway.

  12. I’m glad you’re giving Jean-Yves Le Gallou and his work more exposure in the Anglosphere. I follow him on Twitter (and elsewhere) and have often wished we had more like him.

  13. Replenish says:

    If you want a vibrant country and culture, we have to do something about the low birthrate. Probably the best solution is to promote polygamy. Plural Marriage strengthens the family, provides safety for children, and creates cohesive communities.

    Right now, in pretty much every western nation, Muslims are the majority of polygamists. That factors into their high birthrate as authorities either ignore or have allowed them to continue to practice plural marriage. However, they quickly prosecute any Europeans that do it.

    We need to fight against the double-standard and unequal prosecution. Eliminating immigration won’t solve the demographic problem – but legalizing polygamy for Whites will greatly help.

    Thank you! TV Libertés has great shows.

  17. The so-called forward French thinkers of any age (such as we might say of Jean-Yves Le Gallou) are, when you come right down to it, simply superficial contrarians. All of them are clever enough to look around, detect the current mindset, and rebel against it. This isn’t due to any great conviction or philosophical angst, but rather because the best way to put themselves on top of the académie is to first place themselves outside of it. If they can propose some kind of opposing view, they have a chance at becoming philosophical rock stars.

    But in actual practice, there are only so many unique ideas that a static body of knowledge like philosophy (political or otherwise) can contain. Running through the associated permutations and combinations is like waltzing around the zodiac. Eventually something old will be recycled, ho hum.

    My conclusion is: Never trust the French.

    This has to be the core of the problem. If the EU was genuinely representing the interests European people there wouldn’t be Brexit, Yellow Vests etc. The EU elite is just a clone of the Zio-Glob US elite, promoting outsourcing, cheap labour, open frontiers and political population replacement.

    Petty nationalism has a been a bane of European survival.

    100% agreement, with one minor proviso:

    Europe must jettison any ties to the USA, even the music and movies that come from there.

    The USA was “the world federation in miniature” as far back as the 19th Century, and to some degree the EU was mimicking the place from the Common Market’s earliest days. But it’s an odious example and getting more malignant by the year.

    In the States you can find yourself hated up north for being southern, hated in the south for being northern, and play with all of the other directions for lots more. From the start of the media era, when movies were still silent, dividing people by “generation” began and slowly gathered steam. Now they check your age to see if they want to listed to you or not. This literally has never occurred before; people always used place and occupation to define themselves or even some religion, but never age cohort.

    Then there’s the Unmentionable, working class verses… the world. Naturally generational in-fighting makes it superfluous for the most part anyway. The USA thinks talk of class is, like, communist or something. The white working class was demonized for the entire final quarter of the 20th Century and nobody had the wit to notice it was racist even by the ADL’s definition.

    And this is all among people who are white. There is literally not one thing you cannot be hated for no matter who, where, what age you are and what you do to earn your keep, if your are white and male.

    Europeans in Europe have a chance. The Europeans in Canada, New Zealand and Australia are under fire but still may be salvaged. The United States is a goner.

    (Or like the man said, stick a fork in it, it’s done.)

    The ‘Nouvelle Droite’ was in reality a continuation of the ‘cultural’ Marxism assault against the true roots of the European civilization, the Christian Church and the classical philosophy (Plato and Aristotle), wrapped in nationalist-esoteric verbiage and aggressive pseudo-germano-celto-slavic and Nietzschean ‘paganism’.

    Wikipedia:
    “The Nouvelle Droite was deeply indebted to ideas drawn from the New Left movement. The Nouvelle Droite borrowed heavily from the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci, and its proponents have described themselves as “Gramscians of the Right”. Among the other Marxist thinkers whose work has been utilised by the ND have been Frankfurt School intellectuals Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer and Neo-Marxists like Louis Althusser and Herbert Marcuse. Other leftists have also been cited as influences by various ND figures, with former GRECE secretary-general Pierre Vial for instance praising Che Guevara, the Italian Red Brigades and the German Red Army Faction for their willingness to die fighting against capitalist liberal democracy. During the 1984 election to the European Parliament, De Benoist announced his intention to vote for the French Communist Party, deeming them to be the only credible anti-capitalist, anti-liberal, and anti-American political force then active in France. In 1997, he referred to The Greens as the only French political party that challenged the materialist and industrialist values of Western society.
    The ND claims that the Christian heritage of Europe has generated an egalitarian ethos which has since developed into such secular variants as liberalism, social democracy, and socialism. It condemns the monotheism of Christianity as exhibiting a totalitarian ethos which seeks to impose a Western ethos on the world’s many different cultures. According to Vial, “totalitarianism was born 4000 years ago … It was born the day monotheism appeared. The idea of monotheism implies the submission of the human being to the will of a single, eternal God”.
    Sort of National Bolshevism.

    Modern White women are so much “emancipated” that many of them reject traditional marriage. That is the main reason for our low birthrate. To try to sell polygamy to such women is an absolute non-starter. We will be lucky if we can restore traditional marriage. We need only an average birthrate of 2,1 child per woman in order to survive.
    Let us concentrate on realistic aims.

    It’s interesting that there are so many Zionists now in the alt-right, anti-immigration movement.

    And as the muslim invaders keep on coming and the ones here multiplying I think there will be more, and not just among the end-of-times Zio-Christians but amongst anti-immigrant Europeans of all political stripes. When things get far worse than at present, I can see many demanding that the IDF man our borders as they do a better job than those we have at present.

    But alas, we are the Palestinians, victims of a genuine invasion, no matter how they present it to us. And the UN officially calls it Replacement Migration and clearly sets out its plans:

    Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

    http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/ageing/replacement-migration.asp

    There is the UN plan clearly spelt out. In fact what they’re trying to do is not solve the decline in white populations which is no problem at all just yet, but the overpopulation in the third world by dumping as many as they can in those countries they list above. And your governments are all in this UN and doing everything to assist this plan. It’s not even a conspiracy, it’s a programme they all subscribe to.

  23. I am Norwegian, and we are not EU members, after voting no in two referendums on membership (1972 and 1994). Opinion in Norway is stably around 70% against, 25% for membership.

    The political class here (most of the conservatives and social democrats) however, is sadly mostly for membership, and have succeeded in undermining the referendum result through the EEA (European Economic Agreement), which since 1994 essentially forces on us the EU directives even if the EEA has a clause where we may refuse to adopt them. This clause has never been used by the parliament majority however, because the political class wants to punish people for voting “wrong” in the two referendums. I instead want a regular trade agreement resembling what the Swiss have.

    I disagree about ‘petty nationalism’. I want every country in Europe to have its own currency and decide through domestic political processes on all domestic matters, trade policy, foreign policy, immigration.

    I want the EU destroyed. That is the most important role of brexit seen from my position. Brexit contributes to such a process.

    What we need instead is a cooperative organisation between completely soverereign European countries. Look to Switzerland.

    College campuses used to be the most friendly places for the free exchange of controversial ideas.

    I don’t think this has been the case in France. If feel that at latest since ’68 you could maybe argue whether you were tending more towards one red fashion trend or another (Leninism/Marxism/Maoism as modified by [random luminary who once wrote a book], now with added antifascism/antiracism hot sauce and anticapitalism lard) but beyond that, you better kept schtum. Especially if you wanted to score with the ladies.

    “totalitarianism was born 4000 years ago … It was born the day monotheism appeared.

    Damn you, Akhenaten.

    The idea of monotheism implies the submission of the human being to the will of a single, eternal God

    Well, there is not much evidence we can choose the universe to inhabit, so “submission” (more like inseparability) is not up for negotiation. We may be looking at the psychological roots of the bizarre “multiverse” ideas.

    OTOH, having a pack of cards of various Gods you can choose from depending on how you feel today doesn’t change much, does it? It multiplies the festivals.

    you say : ” I want the EU destroyed ”

    I understand that a little rich country like Norway , with only 5 million people , a lot of oil and gas , and 75,000 dollars per capita income , does not want to join anyone in the world , be the EU, BRICS , the USA or the State of California . No ,no way , norwegians would have to share money with others , that`s a no no .

    . Egoism is deeply rooted in human nature , and the farisaic nordics are among the most egoistic people of the world , you prove it in your comment ” I want the EU destroyed ” ….

    Well , viking , race of predators , as a european I do NOT want your Norway destroyed , if you do not want to join the UE , and live counting your Kronas , fine , it is your option , but you must respect the other european countries ( good markets for Norway , isn`t it ? ) , and refrain your destructive pulsions towards other european countries .

    You’re dead wrong but for the right reasons
    Petty nationalism as you call it it is culture over geography biology over geography bioclture can not be undermined subverted their is nothing more fundamental and is why it is te ultimate glue for that fragile thing a civilization.
    That said some euro nations today may need further exit into the actual genetic components basque flemish walloon cornish scotts etc, however these clans should carefully consider if they are not better off strategically as a larger alliance state with what are usually their cousins or brothers genetically.

    Many WNs in america which is hopelessly mutt euro declare that anything smaller than a pan european mega state is going to lead to whites warring on whites. This is not necessarily so, its probably more likely that different ethnicities being ruled by one mega state will cause one or more of those states to revolt and cause war. We also have experience as our guide 100 years ago we may have not understood the precarious positions whites would find themselves by not sticking together after all we were in aggregate hegemony today we are at a tipping point.
    The other argument seems to be that unless we are one state we cant be organized as a race, this too is nonsense we already are organizing as a race and the future will encourage us to do so more deeply we get what is our common heritage but as a group of race we are more defined than as a “white race” its hard to say where european racial lines end, greeks and bulgarians are more closely related to turks than to icelanders the entire mideast is part of our classical heritage but a greek knows a turk when he sees one. Multiculturalisms real problem is not multicultural ts mono culture which stomps all over what binds us, I can only be bound so far as a european a bit more as a northern european farther still as a germanic keltoi etc its ok the brits invented steam and the italians modern banking etc theyre cousins we are a family but an extended family.
    finally its true america is gong to have to go for whiteness but they really ought to call it europeanness and accentuate regional differences and encourage everyone to pick one and pitch in the rest of the anglosphere is pretty celtic and germanic and ought to try to salvage that its not as mixed as america.
    If you destroy the details of our cultures with pan europeanism you will have destroyed what binds us as a race you would be a multiculturalist and heading in the direction again of human raceness thats a race we lose to other races who know who they are

    But in actual practice, there are only so many unique ideas that a static body of knowledge like philosophy (political or otherwise) can contain. Running through the associated permutations and combinations is like waltzing around the zodiac. Eventually something old will be recycled,

    Indeed, above the fray though. You deserve on merit to trade places with the first in line authors of most contraptions on unz.com. You probably would renege the invitation?

    Anyhow, another tactic is to reduce to simplicity any argument by reducing the variables, …or the context. A few other “classics” are in the toolkit of most authors here.

    It is all about numbers, as Ron Unz proudly propagates, as if that is not the game of the whole of the media world, the obese bodies of politicians anywhere. And that makes not for educating the readers but herding general opinion, in such a way that somebody can exchange interest against financing somehow, somewhere. The next big thing is elections, and as a zine of sorts, this site is cooked up to capitalize on them.

    These latter days, Engelhardt, another lifelong shaper, and trying to, shaker, remodeled the focus of his zine. You’ll see it happening here a few dozen times if this forum hold on to it’s bootstraps. Anyhow, glad somebody (you in occurrence), noticed. Very few others do. We still have to wait for some-one to define the lines of division, say White, Muslim, Immigrant, Native, Jew, Christian, European, American, Latino, Commoner, Young, Old, Gender X-Y-Z, Class, Elites, all in a few focused articles. That would be progress? Probably not, goes against the law of numbers.

    Immigration is another such a “thing”, it is used as a word, not as a definition, not as a justified policy. Does it occur to any-one that it might be asked and insisted upon to your American politicians elected into positions of administration, to define and explain their policies. Democracy, or Holy Cow, sounds about the same. Nazi, Communism, Capitalism, anything can be corrupted, and when it is, it stinks as much.

    Terror is another great one. Over the last week terror as in state terror was not mentioned once in the different articles skirting a minor terror event in Zealand. Gaming was, and to give credit to Anatoly Karlin, although it was whispered to him, he made the prop amusing by going into kill counts, efficiency of a few feats compared. Amusing but daring anyhow. Not politically correct, thus daring. Daring as in being thrown off of Fecesbook, or Tweeter. When one needs some-one else to hold his dick, you might pee your pants.

    Something wrong with the setup at unz.com when it creaks in the seams, as far as opinionating not gnawing a bone at a time thrown by general events, themselves rarely having intrinsic importance.

    Again glad you noticed.

    “Petty nationalism has a been a bane of European survival. It should be discouraged in favor of White racial awakening.”

    Your idea to homogenize “Europe” is cultural engineering on par with the psychopathic Kalergi Plan to make a mongrel Europe. Both constructs have been tried and both resulted in an elitist class controlling a wider generic society.

    What “White” language do you propose will be the official language of “White” Europe? What songs, poems and ethnic dances will be discarded from what European countries for the sake of “White” unity?

    Also, who will decide on what defines a “White” citizen in Europe? Are Sicilians not European because they are darker skinned? What about Serbs and Poles? Many have dark hair and brown eyes. Will you exclude them?

    The point is that ethnic cultures developed naturally and regionally through many centuries. You want to destroy this beautiful process with a higher political power that appoints itself supreme.

    The mongrelizer’s best friend is the homogenizer. You both can point at each other and control the dialectic while Europe burns in absurdity.

    Centralized power of the EU is the problem as well as foreign influence on all “democratic” governing bodies. All countries have been severely corrupted and have resulted in the normalization of usury, weaponized immigration, abortion, and sexual perversion.

    @Replenish

    If you want a vibrant country and culture, we have to do something about the low birthrate. Probably the best solution is to promote polygamy. Plural Marriage strengthens the family, provides safety for children, and creates cohesive communities.

    …and the reply to the above,

    @Franklin Ryckaert

    Modern White women are so much “emancipated” that many of them reject traditional marriage. That is the main reason for our low birthrate. To try to sell polygamy to such women is an absolute non-starter. We will be lucky if we can restore traditional marriage. We need only an average birthrate of 2,1 child per woman in order to survive.
    Let us concentrate on realistic aims.

    These make for deep thinking, it cannot always be light on unz.

    @Replenish suggests?, to do away with Muslim interference, …by adopting Muslim mores? So not war, but lifelong peasantry attending one’s harem, provide for it, as a solution. We would say, a wet dream? One of the best suggestions ever here on unz.com. Some know how to speak frankly.

    Most appreciative of the reply of @Franklin Ryckaert, that “our” women would not go along. After wiping the drips of sorrow, looking at the car with no wheels and the engine not running as stated.

    After the burp of our own, always willing to assist, —that Muslim women are not asked that insistently to agree, a weaker, a minor addendum to the logic.

    Then melts our new found assurance so scaffolded above. Beating breeding by breeding is rather moronic? You Gents, would breeding not turn Europe into Muslim Ummah without any help from the outside and rather immediate? Would that solve the population count globally? Proportionality between populations, Resource availability, foul water and food?

    Admittedly, our secondary emotional reaction was overacted. We will use the rest of the day to explore in depth the above suggestions, there must be some cryptic deeper sense in them. The upside, consumerism corrupts as much the Muslims as the Christians, it comes with the territory. Better comply pro-actively. Above suggestions indeed would be of great help to our elites to turn all these proud Whites into vegans and single book bobbers. Then there is alcohol, and pork.

    You have a point, a strong one, now then…

    … it is al about defining the divides, and what unites. There are planetary issues, to be addressed, these structural solutions if ever, should not interfere with the folk, cultural, ethnical and whatever else and top of with religion, divides, in agreement. There is also a discrepancy to be bridged as to what is individual and what is collective as an issue. Green hair and skirts for males, who cares or not? To what extend they can be submitted to above planetary structural rule.

    The largest one, who should rule, on what basis, regardless of democracy, Ummah, dictatorship and other bruhaha. It seems rather more important to us, as to who dictates, then a dictator we have. As we take our own columns as an example, more said is not necessary better or even anything done.

    Another one, absolutism, dictatorial systems and how they compare to ethics of result. Democracy de facto, is obviously part of the problem.

    Basically the same mistake is made over and over, even you and your very strong point made, the devil is in the details. We should stop tweaking the context, or hiding variables (cards) under the carpet, just because, since we are individuals or groups, and cannot escape the boiling water. (frogs in boiling water, a Russia experiment).

    Before you reproach us for as much, and rightfully, the above only suggest expanding the context of the problem as to a solution that takes into account the planet, for now, and hopefully our universe later. There is no time for building bird cages, painting doors, grooming dark suits any longer. Not playing by the rules, White rules (inclusiveness for all) was done by all actors, now how to get a grip on this?

    Thanks for your straight shooting.

    Contradictory statements. Surely, we are at a point in time where the existing EU institutions should be razed to the ground and the traitors prosecuted. We can’t afford the luxury of reforming (or pretending to reform) a cancer into a set of useful organs.

    I agree. Not only is it a great piece but the questions and answers in the interview are pertinent to what is occurring in America. Durocher’s articles tend to be international in scope which you will never find in the Jewish controlled mainstream media in the US in which only the Psychotic Jewish viewpoints are forced upon us.

    Qaddafi warned Europe and the world what would happen in Europe but no one would listen. Instead Qaddafi was murdered by order of Jewish World Syndicate who did not want Qaddafi organizing the oil producing nations of Africa to form their own cartel and to go off the US dollar and adopt a gold standard. Of course, the resident Jewish Whore Boy President Obama (tailored by Axelrod) and their Jewish Lapdog Killary Clinton just couldn’t wait to do the bidding of Jewish bankers.

    By the way what happened to all of Libya’s Gold?

    Now, there is no dearth of festivals in the Church. Orthodox and Catholics do not differ much in this respect. Both have been accused by the ‘monotheists’ that these festivals are ‘pagan’, that the saints in whose honor these festivals were held are just a mask for the ‘gods’ of ‘paganism’! At the same time the Church is accused of enforcing ‘monotheism’ by the ‘free spirits’, multiculturalists, cultors of ‘diversity’, you name it. The Church is accused of being too ‘patriarchal’ or too ‘feminized’, too ‘judaized’ or abandoning its ‘Judaic’ roots.
    But all the accusers have a thing in common despite their apparent ‘diversity’. They hate the Church, because they hate the Christ. “If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world”.

  42. This was an enjoyable interview to read.

    Regarding European unity, I think European nationalities will become increasingly amalgamated. Western European countries already have large numbers of other European residents, who will intermarry readily into the local population, and many who work and study in other EU nations.

    Eastern Europe will likely be less affected, but returnees who have spent a long time in Western Europe will probably have an effect.

    For better or worse, I believe the longer the confederation lasts the more chance it has of lasting, at least in a loose form, as more people grow up having known nothing else.

    When unifying a nation, one can reach for the lowest common denominator, create a universalistic ideology, emphasise certain regional/sub-cultural traditions and habits and de-emphasise or suppress others, or create a artificial high culture through the cultural intelligentsia.

    I suppose we will see what prevails in the end.

  43. @Digital Samizdat

    “… including Jews, must be removed from all European soils …” says Leon Haller.

    Not too bright. Haller would expel some of the best immigration patriots there are. (At least if his program were applied to the U.S., I’m not that familiar with Europe.) Remove traitors, among which would be a disproportionate number of Jews, perhaps but that’s all.
