What is the realistic route to power for Nationalists in the UK? This post delves into a couple of the conventional routes and introduces another possible democratic route (Plan B). I will start with a conventional route to Power that Patriotic Alternative is pursuing - I will call it Plan A.
- Build IRL communities and a strong activist base
- Stand 100s of candidates in parlimentary elections and win
The assumption amongst nationalists is that the failure of this plan could likely lead to just one other.....
- Wait for societal collapse, balkanisation, civil war
- Win the civil war and fix the country
We all know that Plan A is an extremely challenging proposition but many of us Nationalists are prepared to give it a go, after all Western Civilisation is at stake and the British do not give up easily. Some of these big challenges are listed below:
- Successfully register the party with the electoral commission. And then stay registered and legal as an organisation
- Raise cash which significantly exceed lawfare defence spending
- Persuade enough courageous candidates to risk their livelihoods and personal safety to stand for election
- Successfully compete against or make tactical alliances with other nationalist parties
- Be given some exposure or platform on main-steam media and social media platforms
- Gain the trust of the public, with a united and consistent clear message with a broad range of 'divisive' and mainstream policies. This would be against a backdrop of personal attacks from a dishonest establishment
- Persuade a majority of the shrinking white British population to vote for your nationalist party
Nick Griffin, the ex-leader of the BNP - the most successful European Nationalist party to date, now believes that Plan A is totally unrealistic and we should simply focus our energies in preparation for Plan Armageddo. Watch this video with the late Simon Harris in conversation with Nick.
Deep down, I feel Nick is probably right to be black pilled (apart from my proposed Plan B, which I will get to). Despite the majority of white British wanting to remain a supermajority (https://www.patrioticalternative.org.uk/we_were_never_asked), the parliamentary democratic system is unlikely to give Nationalists any power or influence because the historical achievement of non-centre parties are startlingly depressing. Even UKIP, a centre-right party, never once managed to win a single seat in a general election, despite winning 4 million votes (12.6%) in 2015 and having very popular common-sense policies (very low immigration, scrapping the foreign aid budget, etc). How would Patriotic Alternative exceed UKIPs electoral success? They might and I am prepared to be optimistic and assist them any way I can but it doesn't change the bare reality of the mountain to climb.
Voters tend to struggle weighing up 100s of policies in manifestos and the decision of who to vote for in an election often comes down to which party they trust the most to represent their interests. Even if the public agreed with a nationalist manifesto, they may not trust the people leading the party. Many voters will fear a creep of proposed reasonable polices going to the extremes. For example, could a voluntary repatriation program evolve to become a large scale compulsory repatriation. This question of trust was recently put to Laura in an interview with a Luton based radio station - Radio Lab 97.1FM. Click on the Youtube video thumbnail which starts at this question. Laura's response was very well put but is it enough to convince ordinary people?
A similar question of trust was asked by a Tommy Robinson supporting CivNat called 'Wendy Woo' in a recent debate with Horus. This debate was saved to my Telegram channel starting at the 1 hour mark. https://t.me/nationalistaudio/394
A related trust question could also be asked from the opposite direction - could a promise to end mass immigration not materialise, even with a nationalist party in power. Voters have been lied to before, so why should they trust anyone else? In these times of low political trust, the public is more likely to vote for parties that they know, even if they dislike them.
Politicians have consistently failed to represent the white British. In the 1970s, Enoch Powell had the majority support of the British public and despite this, he was ousted by the treacherous Edward Heath and the rest of the Conservative Party. Whilst the Labour party openly resent and act against the interests of their traditional voter base, the white working class. The party system and representative democracy in the UK are broken and this subject was brilliantly discussed in the Millenniyule 2020 chat between Horus and Millennial Woes. Click on the video below to view the 5-minute segment.
Politicians are disproportionately influenced by big corporations, minority interest groups and Civil Service group-think. Too much power is placed in the hands of too few people and they are easily manipulated. Parliamentary democracy has failed us and will continue to act against the interests and views of the average British person.
We need a Plan B - Direct Democracy
There is an alternative route to power for Nationalists - direct democracy. Politicians would no longer have to represent us - at least on the big questions. I have already mentioned the failure of UKIP to find any notable representation in the UK parliament.... but we must remember that UKIP did do something. UKIP managed to effectively win the Brexit referendum. They didn't achieve power, but their ideas did. Difficult decisions, like leaving the EU, could not be settled by a bunch of MPs debating and making decisions on our behalf, it was only possible when the British had a direct say.
Imagine if every significant policy was put to the British people directly. Imagine if our MPs didn't have to pretend to represent us. Imagine if the British public could vote on important issues like immigration, foreign aid budget, welfare, tax and spend. What about capital punishment, repatriation, abortion?
Patriotic Alternative could instead become a campaign group and not a political party. For some issues PA could team up with other civic nationalist, socialist or libertarian groups, depending on what common ground could be found.
This direct democracy idea did get some traction with the 5 Star Movement in Italy which advocated e-democracy or direct democracy. Estonia and Switzerland also have regular referendums. But generally speaking, direct democracy is an untried form of government. Recent advances in web technology, including blockchain, may now make this technologically feasible.
Opponents of direct democracy have many valid points to be sceptical. Typical sceptic questions would include:
- But how would direct democracy work?
- Most people can not or will not want to understand the intricacies of governance?
- How can the average person make complex / difficult choices?
- Most people would not bother voting in referendums?
- Wouldn't the low intelligent conformists be easily manipulated by the media?
- How could e-democracy ever be secure?
- Don't the people just want to be led?
It cannot be predicted precisely how this system would turn out, but I know for sure, the British would not have betrayed themselves and chosen ethnic suicide. That is obvious. Not only would they not make terrible decisions, but there is also much evidence showing that the collective decisions made by ordinary people are more accurate and better when compared to those from a few 'clever' elite. A good book by James Surowiecki details this phenomena.
In this blog, I plan to expand on direct democracy concepts, including:
- Web technology and user interface
- Delegative direct democracy
- Campaigning for direct democracy
In summary, if Nationalists parties fail to achieve power by building the biggest political party, it still may be possible for Nationalists to gain power in other ways, by giving the British public a direct say.
What do you think? Do you think direct democracy could work? Would it be worth our efforts to campaign for a change in democratic system? I would be very interested in your feedback. This is my first ever blog, so thanks for reading it this far!
