The Case for Culturism: Creating a Conservative Long March

You may not have heard of the word, but each one of us nationalists are culturists. Culturism is an important ideology which is often overlooked, and in fact stretches back to the 1800s, with famous British poet Matthew Arnold being the first man to be openly recognised as a ‘culturist’.

The ideology can be easily described by saying that it is the opposite of multiculturalism. We all know what multiculturalism entails, and how it affects our country. But there’s a dirty secret – a secret that multiculturalists don’t want you to know.

Multiculturalists hate diversity.

Multiculturalists make a mockery out of culture by simply suggesting that culture spans no further than food, music and festivals.

It’s when you consider this that culturism gains a greater context. Culture spans much further than food and festivals. Culture has socioeconomic implications, and culturism can have social and economic government policy implications. Our culture includes rights for women, our Church, relative separation of Church and state, freedom of speech, respect for individual conscience and democracy.

We can destroy the left with their own words by constantly bringing them back to acknowledging the importance of cultural diversity.  And, every time they call us racist, we can tell them, no we’re discussing culturism, that’s about culture.  When we ask them if cultural diversity is important enough to merit discussion, and they answer yes, we have steered the conversation onto a ground where we can win.  This beats just denying we’re racist.

This will be easily done because, when you honestly discuss cultural diversity you find that our customs and traditions, our architecture, our family lives, our financial systems and pretty much any kind of institution in Britain which is comparatively different to foreign counterparts are all a part of our culture.   And, in noting this diversity we note that Britain really does have a core traditional majority culture to protect and promote.  We’re not a culturally neutral society that random cultures meet in.  We’re British and western.

Multiculturalists don’t even consider these things, and this is why culturism is so important for improving public awareness and creating a society that isn’t ignorant.

British people really should understand what culture entails.

We can show the British electorate and youth that the multicultural view of the world makes a mockery out of culture, by suggesting that the only differences in the world are food and music.

We can show the world that yes, we can reject multiculturalism and still enjoy Italian food. We can reject multiculturalism and enjoy French opera. These are western.

But, we must reject mutliculturalism because it embraces female genital mutilation and the stoning to death of homosexuals.   Western cultures have commonalities in that they believe in separation of church and state, individual conscience, and democracy amongst others.   As culturists we can protect majority western culture and traditional majority British culture as we distinguish them from Islamic and Chinese culture, which believe in few of our western values.

We can be proud to be British and be British culturists, preserving what we hold dear, whilst respecting our European neighbours, sharing what we have to offer, but at the same time keeping our nations and institutions separate and fundamentally different.

Culturism is the ideology of the people – the ideology which keeps the world so wonderfully diverse, and the ideology which reduces conflict and tension. Culturism is also the true ideology for equality of opportunity. Whilst equality doesn’t exist (as diversity means we are all different), the equal right of all nations to maintain their right to self-determination does exist. All nations are culturist, as they should be, we’re only asking that western nations get to be practice culturism as well.

Culturism and Nationalism

Culturism and nationalism go hand in hand. The two complement one another and work together.  A nation without a corresponding traditional majority culture will fall.  But currently, nationalism has a bad reputation. Not with our predominantly working class voting base, and traditional Old Labour voters, but with those who agree with basic parts of our ideology but are put off by perception created by establishment puppets in the media.

The left have succeeded in tarring the ideology with a plethora of methods. Perhaps one of the biggest has been using the holocaust as a stick to beat us with, telling us the ideology took six million lives – whilst failing to recognise that the holocaust was a result of a twisted, expansionist and bigoted regime that has nothing to do with us real nationalists. German nationalism violated the western culture traditions of respecting individual conscience.  True western culturism protects individual rights.  If the west falls, which nation will champion democracy, freedom of speech, and women’s rights?

But instead of dwelling on this, we nationalists and culturists need to do something. By no means should we abandon our nationalism, but there is no reason why we should not adopt culturism as well – and use culturism to win back public discourse in the media and in education.

We are nationalists and conservatives. We are nationalists and culturists.

One must recognise that we are not just defined by one ideology. We must use ideologies and ideas alongside one another in order for us to effectively talk about current issues and solve problems – and ethnonationalism is not the solution to all of our problems. Culturism picks up where ethnonationalism is not relevant.

Culture and Race

Naturally, culture derives from a people. A people create a culture. But it must be recognised that culture and race, whilst linked, are two different things. So whilst campaigning to ensure we preserve global racial diversity in the future with nationalism, we should be using culturism to push our cultural agenda – the belief that a native people should preserve their traditional majority culture and in turn, respect their history and maintain a nation that represents what its people love.

Culturism hates racism, and so do we. Nationalists often avoid the word racist, and understandably so. But instead of just putting up with these slurs, we instead need to use the word for its real meaning. Racism is race hate, and our beliefs do not equate to race hate. We patriotic Britons and our European brothers and sisters do not hate other races, we are instead concerned with culture. Frankly, the National Culturists don’t care what colour you are. When the Chinese are culturist or the Saudi’s, it doesn’t mean they’re racist towards us.  They are protecting their culture as they should.

Culturism allows us to talk about cultural issues, like the Islamic grooming gang problem, without being called racist. Islamic grooming is a cultural issue, and has nothing to do with race. And opposing Muslim grooming gangs is not an ethnonationalist stance – it is a culurist stance, relating solely to culture and not race. Using this example, we can clearly see that by making the point that opposing Islamic grooming is a culturist cause and not a racial one, we can avoid the common misconception that our problem is with race, when it isn’t in this case and never has been.

Culturism can help us win back public discourse by separating us from racism totally. When we talk about Islamic problems in Britain, our rebuttal to claims of racism is simply this: it’s not racist, it’s culturist and if cultural diversity is real, culturism is necessary.  When we simply deny our racism, we lose.  When we steer the topic towards the reality of cultural diversity, we can win.

Of course this concept is already accepted by nationalists, but rebuttal goes no further than ‘actually, we’re not racist’. Culturism allows us to point out that talking about cultural issues has nothing to do with race and since they’re already dedicated to promoting cultural diversity, they cannot refuse to discuss culture.

Culturism, in turn, provides us with a well-needed term, and an ideology which will help us win back public discourse. These terms can easily spread. Many people agree with us, but are afraid of being called racist.  When given the words culturism and culturist and embolden to talk about the reality of cultural diversity, we will have awoken the silent majority.

More importantly, culturism could allow us to talk about this issue in the media, resulting in a true and open national discussion about this as a culturist issue and not a racial issue (because it’s not and never has been!) – as the British media continues to suggest this is a racial issue by referring to the problem as ‘Asian grooming’.

The media is being fundamentally irrational by suggesting that denouncing grooming is racist – we have a unique chance to show the people that this is a culturist issue – and with nationalism, the people will not understand. Our nationalism relates so heavily with the importance of preserving racial diversity, that the electorate assume that’s all we talk about.

Culturism and Diversity

In terms of the international community, culturism allows us to cooperate and remain separate. Culturism stresses the importance of diversity – but not the ‘diversity’ you’re thinking of. The multiculturalists try and make you believe that diversity is about forcing as many people and cultures to mix in one space. But that’s not diversity at all. That’s just the process of making every country in the world the same multicultural mess, and destroying the sovereignty of many different peoples and cultures in the world.

When we see countries losing their culture, and becoming a part of a larger ‘global community’, we see a distinct lack of diversity. The world is the same and we lose distinct cultures.

We culturists believe that diversity is real, and important. And if diversity is real and important, then culturism is necessary. 

We must not be afraid to use the word diversity. It is our word. It is not a word of the left. The left can use it, but their ideas are based on a fundamental flaw – multiculturalism flies in the face of diversity.

Culturism also allows us to work together with other nations, whilst maintaining our mutual respect. For instance, a culturist economic policy would see Britain maintaining distributist ideals, whilst our American cousins would chase the American dream in their capitalist society. Culturism does not condone forcing ideals on another land. What is good for one country is bad for another.

Culturism is the Next Step

We’ve done well to get where we are. Nationalist policies resonate with the public, but it’s not enough. Culturism is the next logical step. The ideology not only resonates with voters, but it allows us to openly discuss our beliefs without being called ‘racist’.

With culturism, we are given the opportunity to talk about how we are the ones who want to preserve individual freedoms. Culturism, for instance, opposes the inclusion of Sharia law, Sharia banks, female oppression and the violent victimisation of gays. Multiculturalists believe that the inclusion of oppressive cultures and laws is acceptable, and in turn, multiculturalists are promoting sexism and homophobia.

When we use culturism to escape endless ludicrous claims of racism, we can openly discuss cultural diversity, we can speak about how the forced integration of Islam destroys individual freedom and promotes an air of hatred in society – something we see many young people today campaigning against. Culturism, in fighting for western values, gives us common ground with those young people. This is the common ground we need to make use of – and the most effective way to do this is on university campuses.

The Left, unfortunately, have been much more successful in mobilising young people. Successive governments pandering to the left, with educational institutions abiding by left wing rules, preaching Marxist propaganda have meant that sensible, culturist and conservative ideals have been lost. But not all is lost.

Nationalism will not get anywhere if we continue like this. Universities will never allow a nationalist presence, and without a nationalist presence, the youth will never listen. How can we expect to succeed in the future if the youth aren’t being engaged?

A culturist presence, however, can and will exist in universities. This step will allow nationalists, culturists, conservatives and traditionalists to meet and not be discriminated against in their place of study. Universities have “no platform” policies for ‘racist’ societies, but there’s no policy against culturist societies, which openly oppose race hate, and celebrate international diversity. There’s no reason why universities should stop students who celebrate identity from having a voice – but we need to act quick.

The words culturism and culturist can spread quickly on universities and immediately engage students.  Wherever universities only present multicultural courses, students can demand an equal number of culturist courses in the name of intellectual diversity.  Each time an individual professor mentions multiculturalism, students can challenge their teachers by asking if both sides will be discussed.  The culturist perspective can incite student activism.

This door is open for us now, but it’s slowly closing. Culturism is not only our solution to the ‘racism’ problem, but it’s our gateway to engaging the British youth in a way that the ideological right has never done before.

The Key to Cultural Revolution is our Youth

Ever wondered why no matter how far nationalism gets politically, we’re still plagued with constant lies about our core beliefs as racist, and militant reactions from predominantly youth-based movements? No matter how well nationalism does in future elections, we will still be plagued by these reactions. Establishment-sponsored antifa groups, Marxist student groups and ‘hip’, ‘young’ and ‘trendy’ political movements which have become fashionable amongst young people will continue to attack us.

This means more than just putting up with some abuse on the streets, and hassle when trying to make public appearances. This will in fact be the downfall of nationalism in Britain, and in turn, the total destruction of British culture and the genocide of our indigenous people.

Political gains are important, but if we’re looking for long term success, we need to tackle the root of the problem – the British education system, its slandering of all who would take pride in Britain’s traditional majority culture, the student lifestyle, ‘fashionable’ politics, modernity and political ignorance.

Now of course, it’s important to note that the universities have ways of stopping us succeeding with the youth. Without question this has been the primary reason why we have in fact never succeeded in engaging people in university. This does not, however, mean this- is the end for us. As I pointed out at the beginning of this article, conservative, culturist and nationalist ideals have been lost, but all is not lost. There are still ways that we can engage the youth in universities, even when abiding with strict ‘no platform’ policies which we are given. There are a number of factors to consider.

First of all, we need to consider the actual students and the duties that the universities have to protect those students from abuse, discrimination and harassment. That’s right, these discrimination rules can in fact work in our favour. For instance, when slanderous leaflets about myself, which compared me to Anders Breivik, were printed and distributed around campus, a simple trip to related offices on campus resulted in them being taken down and the matter looked into further.

Universities, whilst being incredibly left-oriented, are legally obliged to treat students the same. What’s more, respectful, well-mannered students will also be treated with respect, as long as they put forward ideas and opinions politely and without aggression. In my experience at university, a difference in opinion can often be welcomed by lecturers who really are passionate about debate and diversity of opinion.   And this debate will spread beyond particular classes if we make culturism a known foil to multiculturalism, consistently discussed in national discourse.

What we need to take from this is that if we are to create a counter culture movement, something like the English Defence League will not do. We need to play the system, and work our way up – and that requires us to be strict about the actions of an organisation, and the way in which it approaches issues.

The second thing we need to consider is our actual message. Now, currently, we are totally unable to have any kind of official nationalist presence on university. This is partly because of the misguided view that we condone race hate, which flies in the face of their ‘anti racist’ policies – but it’s also partly because as a movement, we have been unwilling to actually use words which already belong to us. As mentioned earlier on, words like racism, diversity and equality should not only be used by the left. These are our words. As nationalists, we oppose racism (race hate) and promote identity, promote global diversity and believe in equality for nations to benefit from self determination, by adopting the culturist position.

By openly using the words culturism and culturist, we are abiding by policies outlined by universities and student unions. In using a vocabulary that overtly has noting to do with race, we are opening up a whole new platform for culturist, nationalist and conservative views.

This isn’t to say that it will be easy – it won’t. I have been considering this concept for around two years now, and only in the summer of 2012 did I manage to pull off the first stage. It was hard work, and it still is – but it works. By taking into consideration what I have outlined above, we really do have a chance of infiltrating the universities – but we need a thorough and strict direction. This idea is the equivalent of a crowd trying to squeeze through one door. We need to form an orderly queue and do things the right way. By sticking to strict guidelines, we can create the foundations of a counter cultural movement within British universities. Without guidelines, we’ll just create yet another pointless splinter group with people looking to satisfy egos, get their face in the paper and cause a bit of trouble.

I have a plan to realise these concepts, further than I already have done with the help of a small team of dedicated activists and a larger team of supporters and members. I’m going to outline what I propose, what I have already done, and how an organisation called the National Culturists has the potential to change not only the future of British educational institutions, but the future of British politics.

Manifesting These Ideas into an Effective Movement

The National Culturists group was set up in Summer 2012 by myself. I received inspiration from American politician Dr John Press, the founder and former president of the Brooklyn Tea party. Dr Press has become known online as ‘culturist john and through his book ‘Culturism’ and his youtube videos, he has helped improve awareness about the failures of multiculturalism and the importance of culturism.

After realising how effective this word could be, I consulted with nationalist friends and created the National Culturists website. I then set about creating online content to help educate people, and recruit friends from the nationalist sphere to help me spread the word. It has now evolved into an attempt at engaging young people. We have a simple registration system, whereby supporters can show their support by becoming an official member for just five pounds, which helps us cover online advertising costs, website hosting costs, leaflet printing and placard making.

We’ve made the first steps to make this organisation necessary but we are far from ready for taking the action that is necessary.

This September, five patriotic students took to the Liverpool freshers fayre, only to be attacked by a large group of antifascists. Our tactic, however, had myself and another member leading the antifascists round in circles, whilst our secondary team leafleted the fayre without any problems.

October 2012 did not see us set up an official National Culturist society, but we were told that there should be no real issue with setting one up. This was said to me after a conversation with some of the staff from the Student Guild. As I have already outlined, the concept behind a National Culturist society does not go against the guidelines of universities and their Student Guilds.

September 2013 can and must be the time when the culturist movement achieves national notoriety, by setting up not just one, but multiple official societies within universities, and perhaps even groups in colleges. Local community culturist teams would also be necessary in order to help spread the word to the regular voter, as well as helping promote the university cause.

This will be our long march through the institutions, and it will work.

Currently, nationalism is in a political race – and while the left is nearing the finish line, the nationalists of Britain remain at the start line, discussing how its running shoes will provide a competitive advantage over competitors.

The reason for this is that we’re not preparing for the future. The old parties, along with the likes of the SWP and UAF, have been preparing for the future for decades, and today they maintain a stronghold over the youth of Britain, particularly those in education. You literally cannot move through freshers fayres without bumping into Labour societies, Liberal societies, antifascist societies and more. Their early recognition of the importance and power of the youth has put them in the position now where they can dictate who can and cannot have access to students. We have not done enough to counter this, and as previously said, this is indeed because we’ve been stopped.

The National Culturists is, in my opinion, the only way in which we can take action on university campuses. The only way we can be accepted amongst the youth of today is to actually abide by these rules, whilst sticking to our fundamental principles. You might prefer not to, but using ‘liberal’ language is the only way we can win. Young people already associate with ‘liberal’ language, and many words belong to our ideological side anyway.

And, culturism’s associating Nationalism with liberalism is a true, intuitive and simple.  If we do not save the West, all of the liberal left’s values will be smashed.  China will not defend democracy, Islam will not defend freedom of speech or gays.  Nationalist culturism, taken in a world context, is on the forefront of upholding liberal western values.

With a national organisation in place, with a team of people representing all members and supporters, and regulating activity and conduct, we will be able to manage a number of regional branches for students and non-students, as well as political student societies on campus. The regional branches would consist of experienced nationalists, who understand culturism and the direction that must be taken, and these people would be there to help the student societies work effectively.

Student societies will need to abide by rules when in university, in order for the National Culturist cause to be effective and not face criticism. We will need to be on our ‘very best behaviour’, as tiny slip ups could see our potential university societies kicked out by the university. Already, I have been threatened with expulsion for producing a documented what I believe is anti-white racism in my university. This is why an organisation and hierarchy is required. Without it, we will become yet another mess of a ‘group’, like the English Defence League, without s clear direction, with no clear action plan and absolutely no consistency to behaviour, actions and our message.

By ensuring that we simply do what the left have done, we can actually succeed. For too long we have simply dismissed the left, when in fact, we should have been learning from them. There is no shame in saying that they do things better than us – and one thing they certainly do better with is engaging the youth. Their long march through the institutions must be combated with a more effective march, which needs to start as soon as possible – and I believe the National Culturists can do this. But we need your help to succeed. Not only do we need experienced nationalists to help with organisation and with the training and guidance of young people, but we need as many young nationalists as possible to get on board and help us with the task of forming a number of official university societies in September 2013. Without this, the concept of embracing the youth with culturism is simply a concept.

To summarise, nationalism and traditional ideas will only become real competition for Marxist ideals if we do the following:

- Engage the youth.

- Use familiar language that is often associated with the left to our advantage.

- Operate a culturist organisation with a hierarchy.

- Ensure that our representatives provide a consistent message.

- Ensure that our representatives act consistently and appropriately in university. No violence, no trouble – just polite dissenting.

- Use the word culturism and culturist to stress the fundamental difference between race and culture.

-

The Left are Already Scared

Whilst the National Culturists has only existed for less than a year, and in that time done only a few days of action, we are already being recognised as a potential threat to the hold the left has over universities and students. Only recently, the left wing organisations ‘Extremis’ and ‘Student Rights; have acknowledged us – with Student Rights even taking time to produce a full ‘report’ about the National Culturists. In an online article, Student Rights stated

‘The fact that this group does not openly affiliate with the BNP, and its admission that it aims to rebrand nationalist ideology in a covert attempt to draw young people closer to the party, makes this organisation more worrying, as it represents an evolution in strategy.’

It is indeed an evolution in strategy, and it’s one that can work. Through the use of ‘liberal’ language and culturism, we can not only win back public discourse, but we can bypass ‘no platform policies’, engage with the media in a better light and begin the long journey ahead of us to a future with patriotic students who clearly recognise leftist bias and anti-British politics.

The interjection of the words culturism and culturist can successfully challenge the dominance of multiculturalism on our campuses and in our society.

You can read more about what we have done so far on our website www.nationalculturists.org . The content provides clear examples of how our use of ‘liberal’ language can indeed be effective.

If you would like to help us with our cause, please get in touch via our website and tell everyone you know. We need all the help we can get. Furthermore, if you are a student in college or university, or you know people who are, be sure to get in touch or make others aware about our existence. Our movement needs more students to help our current team perform a nationwide attack on Britain’s universities in September 2013.
