Taking Action – Engaging In Practical Politics
If you have read our article regarding current anti-White policies, you should now have knowledge of the ongoing, morally reprehensible program of genocide against our people. You know about the importance of having the right approach when communicating your ideas and the importance of possessing the correct terminology in order own the moral high ground. If you are reading this article, you have probably decided to do (or at least considered doing) something by engaging in practical politics and spreading awareness of this issue.
First of all, congratulations on deciding to take action and actually endeavouring to do something. Too many people complain about the current policies concerning immigration but very few are dedicated enough to actually take some kind of constructive action against it rather than simply being angry and passive. Purely by making this decision, you have already accomplished more than most people.
A Shared Responsibility
Before we go into specific strategies or present various ways to take action, it is important to realise that stopping White genocide is not YOUR responsibility alone.
A lot people who are consciously aware of these issues, and feel that they have to do something about them, often feel overwhelmed by the weight of responsibility; that somehow the fate of their people depends on them and them alone. Whilst this is true in some respects (if no one took action we would not stand a chance of spreading awareness of current anti-White policies and securing the future of our people), the fate of a people cannot realistically be expected to be put on one man’s shoulders. The burden would simply be too much, and the heavy feeling would leave the person paralysed and incapable of doing anything about it at all. It would all feel hopeless.
Remember: It is not one man’s struggle, it is every man’s struggle and we are all in this together.
It can also be frustrating when all of your efforts to “wake people up” are met with little more than scepticism or even contempt, which is quite common if you are not aware of how to communicate your ideas in a convincing and reassuring manner. Sometimes the response you get, or the things you witness, can put a real dent in your motivation. For some people it might even make them question whether it is all worth it or not, especially if doing something may be a risk to your job or make you an outcast in your social circle.
So why do we do it? It’s simple. We do it because we have a sense of duty and a natural love of our people, and we want them and our children to have a future. We do it because it is our moral obligation and because it is the right thing to do.
It is important to have the right motivation. If you become active solely for personal gains or to feed your own ego you will never succeed. Likewise if your motivation is fuelled by hatred.
A Blessing In Disguise
Despite its hardships, this “awakening” is as much of a blessing as it is a “curse”. It is a blessing because you finally know what is wrong, and if you are dedicated enough, your life will have gained a new purpose or mission.
I can relate to this. Since I started to take action, it has felt like a fire has been ignited within me. I have become more passionate, both professionally and in my personal life, and I have made it my life-long goal to spread awareness of current anti-White policies and to ensure that our people will have a chance to live on into the future. I can wake up every morning loving what I do. I know that I inspire people and everyday more people want to join our cause.
No matter where how life concludes, I know that it will have served a deeper purpose.
Being Anonymous VS Being Openly Active
While it is true that some doors may close if you are openly active (for example, it might be difficult to be allowed to work as a teacher in an anti-White society if one is a pro-White activist), other doors will open in their place. There are many people who have chosen to become active and they may have lost their jobs but gotten a new one thanks to new connections and other pro-Whites wanting to support similar minded people. Some individuals can even make a living by spreading awareness of White genocide and anti-White policies. David Duke, White Rabbit Radio and Red Ice Creations come to mind to name a few. So there can be as many opportunities as disadvantages when being openly active. Others do it regardless of potential disadvantages simply because they feel that it is their obligation and they gladly make the sacrifice if necessary. Of course, there are people who are active and have had no issues in their professional or personal life. It will all depend on your personal situation and where you are in life.
That being said, a lot of people still have issues with revealing their identity, even if they will not be engaging in anything illegal. After all, this is still a somewhat controversial area for some people, even though attitudes globally are drastically changing as more and more people begin to discuss these issues, and therefore it can be understandable that some people want to remain anonymous for various reasons. More often than not, these reasons are mainly strategic rather than simply being a result of cowardice, as not all people will currently be in a situation in their life were being openly active is a realistic option. Many are in a position where they need a secure income because they have a family to provide for and do not have a husband or wife to rely on economically. This does not necessarily mean that they do not want to be openly active, or that it is a permanent choice, it is just a strategic choice for them based on their current situation.
In extreme cases, being openly active might even risk ending up in court in countries with strongly enforced “hate speech” laws. In such cases, it can certainly be to your advantage to remain anonymous. However, if you know how to communicate your ideas in a smart way, and you can keep your activities legal, the chances of that happening are quite slim.
But one can also choose to be anonymous simply because there is no real added benefit to revealing one’s identity (depending on the activity undertaken). It is for this reason that we at This is Europa, for example, have chosen to remain fairly anonymous. We do not have to broadcast our identities doing what we do, as the strategies would be the same and we have no desire to feed our personal egos. There is also the fact that we want to present ourselves as being neutral with This is Europa, as we seek to unite different and active people in Europe. Unfortunately, there are still many internal conflicts and divisions amongst Europeans and in European countries. But if the situation changes in the future, we see no problems with being openly active. In fact, we already are openly active in other aspects of our lives.
Only you will know your current situation and whether remaining anonymous or being openly active is optimal for you at this point. If you are new to practical politics, or have just “woken up”, it may be a good idea to start off by being anonymous and by building up experience as well as confidence. Although the goal should be to eventually open up publicly to speak your mind openly amongst other people. Not only for your own personal growth but also for the fact that the more people are openly speaking out about anti-White issues, the more widespread and normalised it will become to discuss the topic thus making more people aware of this issue.
Where to begin?
Many people want to take action but not all of them know where to begin. If that is the case for you, then rest assured; it’s easy!
No matter your skill set, and whether you have creative qualities or not, we really do believe that everybody can do something. We are all just cogs in a big complex machine. Most people have something that they are good at or at least something that they can contribute.
Some people are really good at making videos and engaging in related projects. Others are good at speaking and find recording podcasts to be a useful tool to reach out to a lot of people, and some people prefer to be active in a political party or being active in some kind of organisation that shares their interests. Others prefer a more hands on approach and want to talk to people face to face and door to door. Many activists have their own YouTube channel with thousands of followers.
There really is no right or wrong way. As long as you have the right intentions and aim to spread your message to other people constructively, it does not really matter what route you take. Sure, some methods will be more effective than others but you should do what you love to do and are good at. Find your role and go for it, but do not be afraid to try new things and challenge yourself with new approaches.
For people who think it is a big step to become openly active it can be good to start off by being anonymous and sticking to internet activism. Internet activism is often underrated among pro-White activists. Some of them still have the conception that the only way to affect public opinion is to demonstrate on the streets, hand out flyers (most of which will end up in a garbage can somewhere) and put up stickers that will most likely get peeled off a few days later. Although this form of activism may hold a purpose in some respects, it is a fairly outdated and ineffective approach considering that is has not changed public opinion over the last few decades. If we want to succeed, we definitely need to be more open-minded vis-à-vis activism than that.
The internet is one of the greatest tools of our time to distribute a message (as you can reach thousands upon thousands of people with relatively little effort). It is a good place to build up your confidence and to practice your practical politics skills, whether these include debating with anti-Whites or learning how to convey your message in a way that can appeal to the masses. This is of course possible in real life as well, but there certainly is room for a lot of experimentation when being anonymous and active on the internet. It should not be underestimated.
Granted, talking to people face to face or voicing an opinion visibly will always have a larger impact than writing anonymous posts online, and we really prompt you to be more openly active, but until you are ready and until your situation allows it, internet activism can be a great place to start.
I would say the most important thing is to do what you love doing. If you love media and are good at making videos, make videos. If you are a musician, create catchy songs with lyrics that highlight talking-points. If you love writing, consider writing articles for a political blog or an online newspaper. If you are a photographer, use it to your advantage and distribute your works to as large an audience as possible. Create memes if you are active in social media and make them go viral. If you prefer a more “hands-on approach” which includes real life interaction with people, consider joining a political party or organisation and take your activism outside the web. Network with other, similar-minded people.
As previously mentioned, the end goal should be to eventually appear in public and speak openly about these issues. Until then, do what you can to contribute by doing something that you are good at or passionate about. Support other activists and contribute in any way that you can. We need you.
And if your life gets tough, remember that no matter where you end up, your life has the greatest purpose of them all: making sure our people can live on into the future.
