This one is for any of my fellow Southerners.
I recently did a guest post for Identity Dixie, a Southern Nationalist website. A bit about them:
We are Identity Dixie.
We are the true Sons of the South, bound by a shared history and culture and united by a common vision.
We are sons of Albion. Our ancestors hail from the British Isles. They were Celts, Britons, Gaels, Anglo-Saxons, and Normans. While we share this genetic heritage with the greater English-speaking world, we do not deny our Old-World roots, as they constitute an important part of our Southern identity.
We are the sons of English colonists and Southern frontiersmen, settlers, and farmers. Our ancestors were a brave, noble, and hard-working people. We maintain our connection to the land, our land, as vital and sacred.
We are men of truth, courage and conviction and will vigorously defend the honor of our people and the sacrifices made by our ancestors who defended their homes and families against invading foreign armies.
They have some pretty high quality articles over there. I definitely recommend a read.
The guest post I did for them is titled “Destroying Dixie“. Here is a short excerpt:
There is a common political topic I talk about a lot, which I call “The Three Essentials.” This is the recognition that there are three pieces that make up a nation-state: the system, the nation, and the nation’s soul.
The system is rather obvious, it is the government framework. The nation is the homogeneous group of culturally-similar people that make up the population (wherein, there can be many nations within one “state” or “empire,” but there is always only one “state”). But most importantly, is the definition of the national soul. The soul is the animating vital core of the nation. It is an incorporeal essence of a nation, similar to that of an individual, that demonstrates a combination of the mind and spirit on a metaphysical level to produce the very “being” of the nation.
Dixie lost their system completely after the war. Their nation was continually assaulted and subjugated throughout Reconstruction and even to this day. But, their soul remained. A piece of that essential three combination held on.
Which is unique. Especially, considering how fast and with little resistance the other nations within the United States fell. That’s before even mentioning that those other nations did not face anywhere near the same level of constant assaults that the South faced. The war had created a resilient soul in their people, if nothing else.
But the issue is: for how long?
It’s worth a read. And while you’re there, send some love to I.D. It’s always good to support our own when we can.
