After a little research, we were disturbed to find their rather murky history hidden beneath the anti-corporate, anti-capitalist and permaculture ideals.
Though we are very happy to promote the independent esoteric and occult authors and publishers whose work and dedication invigorate and stimulate our community, it is entirely another matter to contribute our energy to a project which would seem to be attempting to use a multiplicity of voices from the occult scene to promote the ideas of the so-called New-Right.
First port of call is Wikipedia:
Of course, the accuracy of Wikipedia is always up for debate, but then there are plentiful online interviews:
Or perhaps this article on Co-opting the Counter Culture: Troy Southgate and the National Revolutionary Faction:
We find it impossible to ignore statements like this on the main http://www.national-anarchist.net/ site:
"Race defines who we are, it provides us with an identity and exists for a damn good reason. Without maintaining this essential diversity, something you can find throughout nature, the world will become increasingly drab, standardised and monotonous and the only people left on the planet will inevitably form part of a coffee-coloured mush of uniform humanity. National-Anarchists wish to preserve the different races of the earth and believe that multi-racialism ends with the dissolution of all races. Racial separatism is the only way that the organic balance can be restored."
Our emphasis is in bold, and our disgust is profound.
What is clear in magickal history is that racial mixing has been incredibly beneficial. Let us consider the influences of Persian, Arabic, Chinese, Indian, Tibetan, Jewish and Greek magick that characterise the Western Tradition. Not to mention Africa, which has enriched Europe and the New World. This is proved by the material on Palo Mayombe, Quimbanda, Voudou et al. We could go on. Knowledge comes from exchange and inter-pentetration of peoples, cultures and ideas. And the mingling of knowledge and blood is as old as man and woman. The idea of purity of race and culture is a relatively recent innovation in the quest for meaning amongst the ruins.
We have sought to print writers, some of whom we disagree with, as we hold that there is much to gain from a plurality of voices, perspectives and experiences. However, this does not mean that we ever support giving fascists a platform, or having our own voices co-opted to that end.
To be clear we are not implying that those who write for this Press hold fascist views. Nonetheless, those who choose to write for these publications must be clear that they are providing an intellectual fig leaf for an ideology which would otherwise struggle to be taken seriously.
There is a Spanish proverb, 'Tell me who you walk with and I will tell you who you are'.
All blood is mixed in the cup.
