Slogan: "For Ourselves and Our Posterity"
Search Text Case Sensitive  Exact Words  Include Comments

tm4BzTRAmHveu5M656JmPLT6Commenter ABN suggests:

… maybe “For Ourselves and Our Posterity” would make a good slogan.

The repeated possessive pronoun “our” unmistakably draws a contrast between the American nation and foreign nations. The implication is that our government arises organically from a specific national community and has neither rights nor responsibilities outside this context. If there is an “us,” there must be a “them,” and the state must necessarily distinguish between the two.

Moreover, the reference to multiple generations of a single people is a standing repudiation of the globalist/immigrationist notion that our people’s problems can be solved by other people’s fertility. The solutions to any economic, spiritual, or demographic problems we have must be found among ourselves, or the inter-generational social contract will be broken and we will cease to exist as a nation. Also, the invocation of demographic continuity here implies an ethnic or racial component of national identity without being too explicit or divisive in that regard.

The reference to the Constitution also has the advantage of attracting some of the Cruz-supporting types who have created a kind of cargo cult around the country’s founding documents. The underlying message to them is that Trump’s nationalism and True Conservatives’ constitutionalism are complementary; the Constitution wasn’t written in a vacuum. The laws and the ideology can’t be separated from the people and the land.

Finally, it’s hard for the Left to attack the Constitution itself. If leftists attack “For Ourselves and Our Posterity” as “racist,” “xenophobic,” or whatever, we need only point out that it’s part of the written mission statement of the USA. There would be no better opportunity to implement Peter Brimelow’s advice to respond to the accusation of racism with the counter-accusation of treason. That aggressive posture would suit Trump’s style.

Issues, however, include:

- The Preamble reads “to ourselves and our Posterity” rather than “for ourselves and our posterity.” Preposition usage, being arbitrary, shifts over the centuries.

- Random 18th century capitalization is distracting.

- The Preamble has almost been written out of the Proposition Nation propaganda; not quite as much as George Washington’s farewell message has been stuffed down the memory hole, but it’s getting there.

    Yes, and yes ... the key difference is that that at the end of the day they don't have to hold their noses to vote for the sh*t candidates foisted upon them by the Dem party elite because they know their cause is going to get a piece of the action.

    There's more than 14 types of Trotskyists alone - the left (I'm assuming that's what you meant by liberal, everything across the aisle) are more schismatic than South Korean evangelicals.

    Obviously there are not 14 mutually exclusive types of lib, but the same is true of conservatives.

    But if you were to force 100 random Democrats and fellow travellers to tell you their primary agenda, I think at least one person would list each of the following (possibly using euphemisms):

    1) black supremacy

    2) female supremacy

    3) taxing the rich more

    4) killing the rich

    5) Gay power

    6) Lesbian power

    7) Tranny power

    8) anti-war

    9) Latinx power

    10) anti-christian

    11) Sharia jihad

    12) Weed legalization

    13) Single payer healthcare

    14) tuitionless college, student loan debt forgiveness

    15) ban guns

    I could probably name a few more

    , @SFG
    Anarchists, communists, environmentalists, LGBT activists, feminists, black activists, Latinx activists, Muslim groups, academics, union activists, SWPL yuppies, artists, suburban Northeastern limo liberals, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, militant secularists.


    I'm sure I forgot a few. (Jews are split up among the other groups--whatever the net effects of immigration, etc. may be, pro-Israel activists don't really seem to be a cohesive group within the Democrats at least--it's more a position people take to keep donors happy.)

    Just because the founders thought this was a catchy slogan fit for the times (the 18th century) doesn’t mean it must have the same appeal as now.

    Sweden believes the fundamental mission of the country is to fight racism worldwide and 1% of their economic output at least every year should go towards helping mothers in Africa and such.

    Why not adopt that mission instead?

    It wasn't a "catchy slogan". It is the purpose of the enterprise.

    Sweden believes the fundamental mission of the country is to fight racism worldwide and 1% of their economic output at least every year should go towards helping mothers in Africa and such. Why not adopt that mission instead?
     
    Well, let's see ... because how is that working out?

    In Sweden, the high-cost, low-procreation society is imploding, pulling hostile and unassimilable immigrants into the resulting vacuum.

    In Africa, the "helping" of mothers does not result in a higher standard of living, it just results in a higher number of living, whose surplus numbers are even now crossing Europe's beaches.

    So the reason not to adopt that mission is because it's bad for Sweden, bad for Africa, and bad for everyone getting the surplus population. Like most SJW-inspired missions, it is a triple fail.

    Any other questions?


    P.S. I doubt "Sweden" actually "believes" in this "mission". A self-righteous, largely self-appointed claque of conceited elites may, but Sweden not so much.

  3. Yes the Constitution was dedicated TO a specific people and their descendants. Don’t tell me how much you worship the Constitution yet fail to realize that (silly cuckservatives).

    I must say, it appears we are in the beginning stages of a social revolution which people like Steve seemed to think were impossible without “elite intellectual” support.

    It's more than simply dedicated to a nation of people, it is that nation. The English nation is constituted in their two Houses of Parliament and the Monarch; the American nation is constituted in our two Houses of Congress and a President. A nation's constitution represents the parts of which it is made and the way the people of that nation govern themselves, do business, etc. If the nation is altered beyond recognition, then its constitution must be changed to represent the transformed nation.
    The Pew polls that show stronger Black and Latin support for big government and other differences with Whites indicate that a real change in the small-c constitution of the nation will come without a change in immigration policy.

    I think it is unlikely that Bill Clinton has no plausible (even if not 100% accurate) connection to Epstein’s island and although that subject would be safe with any of the usual GOPe puppets it may not be safe with Trump and there is going to be too many people who don’t want the island and what goes on there to come out imo.

    “If leftists attack “For Ourselves and Our Posterity” as “racist,” “xenophobic,” or whatever, we need only point out that it’s part of the written mission statement of the USA.”

    What the left probably would request is for clarification as to who specifically “ourselves” and “our” refers to. There is the implication that is generally attributing to “white men”, although Thomas Jefferson had to muck things up when he stated “all men are created equal”. Damn him.

    I'm aware that Steve was adopted. I'm also aware of the fact that my dad is an immigrant.

    That said, neither my existence nor Steve's changes the fact that the institutions of family and nation are basically biological in origin.

    Just as the biological family creates the normative family structure into which non-biological children are adopted, the ethnic and historic tribe creates the nation into which immigrants are naturalized.

    It would be pretty obnoxious for Steve to argue that all children should be randomly assigned at birth to unrelated foster parents.

    Likewise, I find it obnoxious when high-agency minorities try to deconstruct the white cultural and racial heritage of America and Europe to suit the parochial agenda of their special snowflake selves.

    The implied but not explicit racialism of "For ourselves and our posterity" basically mirrors the way I view the National Question. The core of a country is biological, but the precise boundaries of the national polity are historically contingent, socially constructed, etc. Numbers are of the essence.

    But if you were to force 100 random Democrats and fellow travellers to tell you their primary agenda, I think at least one person would list each of the following (possibly using euphemisms):

    1) black supremacy

    2) female supremacy

    3) taxing the rich more

    4) killing the rich

    5) Gay power

    6) Lesbian power

    7) Tranny power

    8) anti-war

    9) Latinx power

    10) anti-christian

    11) Sharia jihad

    12) Weed legalization

    13) Single payer healthcare

    14) tuitionless college, student loan debt forgiveness

    15) ban guns

    I could probably name a few more

  36. The problem I have with “Ourselves and Our Posterity” is precisely its explicit reference of the Constitution.

    The US Constitution is a Gnostic and Masonic document. It has nothing to do with anything I would like to “conserve” about the United States of America or Western Civilization. This professed love for the Constitution belongs to the Cruzers’ brand of ideological non-servatism which went down in defeat two days ago. For my part, I am very happy to be living here at the dawn of a post-constitutional age.

    Yes the Constitution was dedicated TO a specific people and their descendants. Don't tell me how much you worship the Constitution yet fail to realize that (silly cuckservatives).

    I must say, it appears we are in the beginning stages of a social revolution which people like Steve seemed to think were impossible without "elite intellectual" support.

    It’s more than simply dedicated to a nation of people, it is that nation. The English nation is constituted in their two Houses of Parliament and the Monarch; the American nation is constituted in our two Houses of Congress and a President. A nation’s constitution represents the parts of which it is made and the way the people of that nation govern themselves, do business, etc. If the nation is altered beyond recognition, then its constitution must be changed to represent the transformed nation.
    The Pew polls that show stronger Black and Latin support for big government and other differences with Whites indicate that a real change in the small-c constitution of the nation will come without a change in immigration policy.

    I’m aware that Steve was adopted. I’m also aware of the fact that my dad is an immigrant.

    That said, neither my existence nor Steve’s changes the fact that the institutions of family and nation are basically biological in origin.

    Just as the biological family creates the normative family structure into which non-biological children are adopted, the ethnic and historic tribe creates the nation into which immigrants are naturalized.

    It would be pretty obnoxious for Steve to argue that all children should be randomly assigned at birth to unrelated foster parents.

    Likewise, I find it obnoxious when high-agency minorities try to deconstruct the white cultural and racial heritage of America and Europe to suit the parochial agenda of their special snowflake selves.

    The implied but not explicit racialism of “For ourselves and our posterity” basically mirrors the way I view the National Question. The core of a country is biological, but the precise boundaries of the national polity are historically contingent, socially constructed, etc. Numbers are of the essence.

    I agree with you that mass immigration is bad. I agree that America can't solve its fertility "problem" exactly the way that Mom and Pop Sailer (presumably) solved their fertility problem.

    Rather, I'm saying that "for ourselves and our posterity" is not "implied racialism" and is not an argument against mass immigration. The masses of Hispanic and other immigrants, once they become citizens, are every bit as much the "posterity" of the Constitution as Steve and his descendants are the posterity of Mom and Pop Sailer. And the fact that the Founding Fathers undoubtedly imagined their posterity as English—not "white," but English—is no more relevant than the fact that the Sailers probably imagined their posterity as biologically related to them.

    That's not just a theoretical point of public law. Like it or not, America been a nation of immigrants ("adoptees") for several decades at least, maybe up to two centuries, depending how you define it. When people think of the "posterity" of the founding, they now imagine all sorts of ethnies that don't belong to the founding stock: Irish, Swedish, Jewish, black, German, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and so on.

    It wasn’t a “catchy slogan”. It is the purpose of the enterprise.

    Sweden believes the fundamental mission of the country is to fight racism worldwide and 1% of their economic output at least every year should go towards helping mothers in Africa and such. Why not adopt that mission instead?

    Well, let’s see … because how is that working out?

    In Sweden, the high-cost, low-procreation society is imploding, pulling hostile and unassimilable immigrants into the resulting vacuum.

    In Africa, the “helping” of mothers does not result in a higher standard of living, it just results in a higher number of living, whose surplus numbers are even now crossing Europe’s beaches.

    So the reason not to adopt that mission is because it’s bad for Sweden, bad for Africa, and bad for everyone getting the surplus population. Like most SJW-inspired missions, it is a triple fail.

    Any other questions?

    P.S. I doubt “Sweden” actually “believes” in this “mission”. A self-righteous, largely self-appointed claque of conceited elites may, but Sweden not so much.

    “Sweden believes the fundamental mission of the country is to fight racism worldwide…”

    This is fascinating. Is there a mission statement somewhere? I don’t mean from nice Lutheran churchmen, Jewish press-owners, or academics, I mean a government statement. I could well believe they do. It would make interesting reading.

    On the other hand, despite their “beliefs”, they may end up creating a situation worse than Northern Ireland.

    “EXCLUSIVE: Neo-Nazis thugs warn of a ‘year of violence’ following attacks on child migrants at train station in Sweden”, Daily Mail, Nick Fagge, 3 February 2016:

    “…The extremist Swedish Resistance Movement (SRM) hailed the racist mob that attacked ‘foreign-looking’ men, women and children at Stockholm’s Central Station ‘heroes’ last week, describing them as modern ‘Robin Hoods’…

    …A recent poll found that the Sweden Democrats, an anti-immigration group with a neo-Nazi past, have become the country’s biggest political party with 28.8 per cent of the vote.

    It’s almost as if someone is working hard to set up the optimum environments for triggering wars. Maybe it’s a giant experiment by secret alien overlords. Perhaps the space aliens are betting on the outcomes.

    Doesn’t sound like high-trust Swedes were all that smart, instead they were callow, credulous, and just not very worldly:

    “…SD spokesman for migration and citizenship Markus Wiechel told MailOnline: ‘The rise in Swedish nationalism is a direct consequence of the situation we see today.

    ‘A lot of Swedes did not realise what was going to happen when we opened the borders [to large numbers of refugees].’…”

    Who could have ever guessed?
