Patriotic Alternative hold second successful meeting in London

Given the county of origin of the two leaders of the Patriotic Alternative, the conference started auspiciously when on arrival I engaged a distinguished-looking gentleman in the venue’s car park and he proved to be by profession a tea-blender, who had achieved some kind of acme of achievement by being the man whose taste-buds had put together the secret formula which has made Yorkshire Tea Britain’s number one blend. And he it was who had also suggested the name. So that intelligence immediately ingratiated me with Laura Towler and Mark Collett.

It can scarcely be over-stated, how difficult it is to organize and successfully host large scale international meetings of this quality, given the contrary conditions that have to be contended with: it has to be accessible enough for new or young people to be able to attend and at the same time inaccessible enough that saboteurs do not prevent the event from taking place. And given the broadcasting workload that Mark sustains as the over-all coordinator.

By general consent, it was the largest nationalist meeting of its kind in Britain for over a decade. It was twice the size of the first PA conference in Lancashire. And the people were of the quality of those who attend the Scandza Forums; and that is the real extent of its success. Just to speak personally, two public school educated artist friends of mine had registered to attend quite independently of me who decades ago when we were working on projects together used merely to smile at me when we talked politics.

The attendees at the meeting evinced what Jared Taylor repeatedly says about the way the movement has changed in his lifetime of activism. Normal people are now the norm and not the exception.

This gathering further evinced what seems to me true, that in the absence of a default ethnically specific and indigenous religion, such as Hinduism for Indians, in the vacuum that is opening up at the heart of Western culture, this movement is increasingly taking on a spiritual dimension––because it needs to in order to fill that vacuum. The charismatic last speaker of the day, Jason Köhne, with all the eloquence of a man seemingly brought up in the tradition of gospel preaching, inspired everyone with how he invoked the “Spirit of the West”, as that which lies dormant within us and may be kindled and raise us into the sky like an eagle that had forgotten its own wings. He used the phrase several times and, in each context, it could have been replaced with the word “God” or, more specifically, with the name of one of the European Gods.

The first to step to the podium to speak was the prime mover of the event, namely Mark Collett. In developing his general theme of community building, he extolled the benefits of face to face interaction, which, by all the additional information that tone of voice and body language can supply, forges firmer bonds, with far less of the characteristic misinterpretation that can occur online and that can rapidly deteriorate into name-calling. And he asserted the need for the provision of “safe spaces” in order that what he described as the most unfairly maligned and oppressed people, namely, the indigenous population, can freely interact and form friendships, as steps towards ensuring that everywhere in Britain is such a safe space.

It is almost disrespectful to commend the craft of Dionne Møller’s speech as it was one of the most disturbingly graphic accounts I have heard from the lips of a contemporary, yet at the same time she was able to transmute the dark unpleasantness of her experience into something of useful effect. In a quarter of a century’s service as a decorated police officer, she saw some truly harrowing sights, but she said that it was only one that led her to shed a tear and took her to what she now believes. I shall let you find out what that was by watching the video (at Secret Sources, her YouTube channel or at another channel, Patriotic Talk). Naturally, she was able to amplify the subjective with objective corroboration by providing statistics to show how horribly widespread what she had been witness to is. She invited us to see the internal tears that we all have shed over something similar and that have brought us to where we are now as a common reservoir to draw upon and out of which fertile action will be born.

Even more timely now than then, from a recently locked-down Barcelona, Simon Harris presented his speech via a video-link to his house, where he had decided to remain since, had he flown to Britain, he would not have been able to return to be with his family and support them at this most important and uncertain time. He spoke of his fairly recent ideological migration from civic to ethnic nationalism and of the advantage that such people have in being able to see more readily the two positions and argue for the latter; and he spoke of the great potential in disillusioned inveterate Labour Party voters to be attracted towards a “Patriotic Alternative”, since their allegiance to the party had always been more identitarian than ideological. The circumstances of his confinement focused his mind inevitably upon the virus. On the one hand, whatever its origin, the governing powers could use its presence to institute “police state measures”, which once in place, they might be reluctant to withdraw later; and they might further the elimination of physical money and attempt to delay the implementation of Brexit. On the other hand, it could show the value of effective border controls, “increase xenophobia in a good sense”, and begin to localize the economy when components from the other side of the world ceased to be so easily available. Which was to corroborate a theme I had heard Nigel Farage articulate on the radio a few days before when he said that he thought the virus would lead to the collapse of the EU since it showed that when a matter of vital importance arose, each nation acted in what it perceived to be its own interest. Certainly, this kind of contingency does question some of the assumptions of globalism. Ultimately, a nation-state community that is relatively more self-sufficient in resources and skills, that is, which has grown no larger than that size which its land’s and people’s attributes can sustain, will be relatively more safe and sound than one needing Chinese expertise to maintain its infrastructure and far-flung foreign farms to put food on its tables.

Colin Robertson (AKA Millennial Woes) appropriately enough addressed matters pertaining to millennials and their woes and to the currently unhealthy state of the relation between men and women; and he did so through illustrations taken from his own upbringing and from the role his YouTube channel has played in his personal evolution. He opened with the statement that the fact that millennials have less sex is because the genders have become too similar in their behaviour, and proceeded to expatiate upon what he described as a feminisation of our societal values wherein the avoidance of conflict and the establishment of a pastel-tinted harmony tended to stifle other aspirations that entail conflict and competition: discovery, grand enterprises, pursuing a vision through to its fulfilment or failure. The ultimate harmony, he said, is nothingness; and yet the harmony of the womb is not a place of safety when transferred to the real world, where functioning society needs men behind the scenes maintaining its foundations.

Men always need to be expanding. Weak men seek the unconditional love of their mothers, which is different from the love of a spouse, which is always conditional. Healthy women select men strong enough to reject them. But modern women have no need to select for quality because of the welfare state.
He spoke of how his mother had imbibed feminism whilst not being a feminist herself and how her view of men made him not want to become one. Masculinity is under attack because white men are under attack. We are not genetically weaker than our forefathers. Women will not change; we must change and so change them.

It is your gifts that matter, not you. You are the vessel and the vessel can be repaired. If your life is a giving of your gifts to the world, you are a success.

I think the concluding sentences are wise and why, I would suggest, his work will be studied in universities within fifty years, because there is nothing like it within nationalism, in its personal honesty and philosophic profundity.

Laura Towler’s speech was one of the most valuable contributions to the day in that it explored practical steps to ameliorate the demographic decline facing the indigenous population, and it spoke rationally about the explosively emotive issue of repatriation. It is easy to react to things one does not like, to blame and to complain, but to suggest feasible means to reverse the trends that have brought them about is the engineering needed to change people’s minds. People can persuade themselves to call anything good if they think it is inevitable. And no one will expend energy in any cause if they do not believe it is achievable. She suggested offering to pay £15,000 per person, of any age, plus the cost of a one-way ticket to the ancestral country; so, for a large family, this could be a tempting offer. Illegals and criminals would be deported without reparation. Laura then answered several of the more common objections to such programmes.

When the matter of whether this country needs a constitution or not is raised, it singularly always fails to address the matter of this country’s physical, human constitution, which is the underlying causative body, whatever the “constitutional” governmental clothes in which it may articulate itself. Like a jar of strawberry jam, for it to be legally deemed so, it should be constituted by a certain percentage of strawberries, rather than by anything else that may have been planted on the ground where strawberries once were the only cultivated fruit. If the physical constitution, the limiting proportion of essential ingredients is stated, then demographic planning can take place to ensure that it remains what it is, that its “constitution” is defended (though that phrase has now such a hollow ring given its paradoxical use in Germany to outlaw those who would defend its physical constitution).

The builders of Cologne Cathedral laboured to complete a project they would never see come to fruition

The day was brought to a peroration by the exceptional oratory of Jason Köhne, whose talent to extemporize and entertain made him the ideal final speaker, who was thus able to summarize what those who spoke before him had said and to cast it into a coherent whole. He powerfully put forth his vision of one people, many lands. I wished I had had time to ask him to if he had in mind a certain anthropological history when he said that at some point, we were one people, or if he had meant this in a more cultural sense. One image remained with me. That of the first builders of Cologne Cathedral, which was to take eight hundred years to complete. They laboured upon what they knew they would never see come to fruition. We must all do what is right without thought of the immediate result.

As I write, I think all the speeches are available on YouTube, but not necessarily on one channel. Audio is available at Radio Albion.
