The Organization Of A Successful Movement
Below is a list of 15 items that I find essential to proper organization on the Right.
These do not apply to leftists, just as leftist organization tactics cannot apply to us. We are separate in our goals and actions, and thus both require different kinds of organization.
Most of these are from my thoughts on the absolute failures of previous organized movements on the Right. Things like the alt-right, Perotism, libertarianism, and the like. Some are a mixture from other Right-leaners that have commented on similar topics.
Either way, this is an important topic going forward. Perhaps the most important, for no philosophy/ideology/action matters if it can’t be practically organized and be successful in that endeavor.
Here are the 15:
- The organization must have a firm ideology, not necessarily a firm leader. Must be able to continue after leader or founder’s death.
- Goals must be framed in specific terms. This is opposite to the leftists and something that the Right so often tries to copy from the left, but cannot, for we are not the “vague-utopian” political branch. Our best expect specific solutions and we should appeal to them above the utopianists.
- Strong vetting of members / conquering the “authority” problem. Somehow, there must be authority necessary to remove bad members. A centralized leader is risky, but so is decentralized membership. Likely, a contributory strategy would be best, similar to Enclavism itself.
- Proper “optics” is necessary. No one wants to join the angry group. Or the loser group. Or the violent group. In politics, image is a big deal. It shouldn’t be, but it is. Just like we live in reality in every other respect, we must accept this reality as well.
- Sustained, long-term, slow growth. Without this, #6 is difficult to accomplish.
- A membership that stays optimistic and positive. Members rarely fear, become pessimistic, or act distraught. “We will win” must always be the mantra. Minor setbacks must be looked at as fun challenges, victories must be looked at as minor stepping stones to the inevitable future.
- The organization must have a higher appeal. It must appeal to something higher than a single leader, a person, or materialistic thing. A Divinity connection of some kind is necessary for any on the Right. Not necessarily a “Christian” worldview or any denominational thing, but an appeal must be present. Moral authority must be grounded, objective, and enforceable. Our organization must have these strong qualities to invoke commitment, fidelity, and courage.
- The organization must benefit its members, and its members must benefit the organization.
- All members are representatives and must act like it. Similar to #3, but all must be adept at #4. This requires vetting out the poor members and not allowing them to act as representatives. However, it’s not enough to vet out the worst. The average must be made the best they can.
- There must be a focus on the right people, not a lot of people. This follows up on #9. A lot of the grey masses will always yield zero results, but even a handful of the right guys can change the entire state of condition. Find these right people and secure them, shield them, and build them.
- The organization must define itself in the positive, not the negative. The organization must be in favor of something; it must be actively seeking a specific objective. They are not to be “against” something or in response to something.
- The organization should be enticing in some manner. It should either have a rough, comradery environment or a mysterious, secret environment. Or some other variation thereof, that is neither bland, boring, nor like the ones mentioned in #4. People should desire to support the organization on their own, without extensive commitment or pressure. They will only do so in a proper environment.
- There is one leftist tactic we can take direct from Saul Alinsky: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can lead the public into your arms. Violence from the organization will only isolate it and give the power-holders a reason to attack it more ferociously.
- The organization must work to disengage from the societal system entirely. Don’t work with it. Don’t seek its support or its acceptance. Become parallel. Don’t even seek its competition. Act like it doesn’t exist while organizing. Build everything of our own. There is little reason to engage with the system except in the rare circumstances when it is personally beneficial to the movement. Otherwise, create an insular system and engage primarily within that structure.
- All actions by the organization and its members should benefit the organization, or the action shouldn’t be done at all. What matters is the movement’s success, which can only be brought about through the organization.
Hopefully, I’ll have more to add on later in a future article. This is a good base to start with.
