BEYOND THE FASCISM OF THE RIGHT AND THE DOGMATISM OF THE LEFT
WHAT IS NATIONAL-ANARCHISM?
Q. Why ‘national’ anarchism? Surely nationalism is incompatible with anarchic principles?
A. National-Anarchists do not support nationalism in the sense that we look to artificial nation-states or borders and boundaries. In a more realistic sense we are Indo-Europeans and therefore part of an ethnic heritage that includes not only Europe but also countries like Iran, Afghanistan, India and Tibet. Indeed, we base our ‘national’ outlook upon a much broader interpretation, not on the limited parochial attitudes of nineteenth-century imperialism. When we speak of nationhood we are referring to its tribal and organic implications. Therefore our concept of the word ‘national’ relates not to territory but to the racial identity which is a natural facet of all peoples.
Q. So do you support some kind of Eurasian superstate?
A. No. We believe in political, social and economic decentralisation. In other words, we wish to see a positive downward trend whereby all bureaucratic concepts such as the UN, NATO, the EU, the World Bank and even nation-states like England and Germany are eradicated and consequently replaced by autonomous village-communities. However, given that National-Anarchist communities will always be regarded by the Establishment as some kind of fifth column - and, in all likelihood, infiltrated and crushed - it may be necessary to migrate to areas which currently lie completely outside of Western jurisdiction.
Q. Are National-Anarchists racist?
A. Certainly not. Our vision comes from a love of our own kind and a genuine respect for others. This stance is totally at odds with racial hatred and is fundamentally based upon the realities of self-determination for all peoples. Furthermore, we do not subscribe to a white supremacist agenda or wish to enforce our worldview on others. National-Anarchists are racial separatists and wish to build links with like-minded individuals and organisations regardless of their racial or ethnic background. Racial miscegenation endangers mankind in the same way that hunting and pollution threaten both the environment and the animal kingdom. Together with our comrades around the world, we are seeking to preserve the natural condition of humankind.
Q. So do you plan to outlaw mixed-race relationships?
A. Not at all. These are issues which must be decided by those concerned, although we do remain adamant that such practices remain outside of our own communities.
Q. But what if people disagree with your ideas?
A. Fine. We have no problem with that. As long as they do not prevent us from occupying our own space and land in which to live according to our own principles and beliefs. Attempting to interfere with our way of life or seeking to prevent us from living in our own anarchistic communities is fascist and authoritarian. We do not wish to persecute others or bend them to our will. But if our opponents are not prepared to respect our freedom and establish their own communities elsewhere, we will not hesitate to defend ourselves accordingly.
Q. How do National-Anarchists intend to pursue their objectives?
A. The Capitalist System is dependent upon the constant acquisition of resources for its own survival. In years to come, however, International Capitalism will slowly disintegrate in the same way that the Roman Empire - which also specialised in expansionism and the control of the periphery - finally collapsed under the weight of its own greed and ambition. Therefore we must hasten its demise by encouraging revolution on the periphery and, thus, depriving the urban centres of their valuable resources. Once we empower the exploited peoples in the so-called Third World, we can finally slice off the tentacles of Capitalism one by one until the very core of political and economic power is completely eradicated. Destroy from within and create from without, that is the very essence of National-Anarchism.
Q. But the centres of power are mainly in Europe and North America, so what will become of the West?
A. Who cares! The whole concept of Western civilisation has been built upon exploitation and greed. Moreover, it is an historical progression which has taken mankind away from its primordial condition and led to the enrichment of the few at the expense of the many.
Q. But surely this process will lead to technological regression?
A. Of course. National-Anarchists are not opposed to technology per se - or at least those forms which do not harm the environment - but it remains a fact that once the internationalist system begins to wither away and people start to return to a more natural lifestyle, the factories will stand idle and therefore nobody will be on hand to produce computers, televisions and other luxury items. People will be forced to live without cars and supermarkets, chat shows and telephones, vibrators and central heating. Eventually this will lead to a more leisurely way of life, simply because on average hunter-gatherers work something like two hours a day in order to satisfy their basic needs. But it would be wrong to suppose that National-Anarchism is deliberately advocating a more primitivist lifestyle, on the contrary, we merely predict that it is inevitable and that people must face up to it. It remains to be seen just how far this process will go.
Q. What is the way forward for National-Anarchists?
A. We will continue to forge links with other opponents of globalisation in the hope that, eventually, we will become one of the makers and shapers of the developing anti-Capitalist movement. So in this regard we extend the hand of friendship and co-operation to all like-minded peoples both in Europe and around the world.

Kind regards to the National Anarchists, specifically Troy Southgate, for letting us explore the idea of National Anarchism here at Folk and Faith! Those that now lay claims to the title of 'Anarchist,' and yet seek to deny others the right to form autonomous and separatist communites are not only unanarchistic, but are perhaps the only real 'Fascists' and 'Racists' left.
As with other noble thoughts; i.e. orthodox Christianity, Nationalism, Socialism, Self Rule, to name a few, it is only a matter of time before it gets hijacked by the destroyers of culture. Often times as a result of such, the entire idea gets thrown out rather than simply throwing out the defilers of truth. It is hightime that the Anarchist title was reclaimed, and in comparison to typical Right Wing hollywood Nazi's and Left Wing Marxists, National Anarchy is indeed a breath of fresh air! -FNF!-
