Where are the Syssitias?

“You can’t fight jewish tribalism with white individualism.”

—Alex Linder

In ancient Greece, notably among peoples of Dorian blood, i.e., pure white Aryans, and especially among the Spartans and Cretans, the custom that full citizens should eat the chief meal of the day in a public mess was called Syssitia. I first read about the Syssitias, or mandatory dining club of fifteen or less men, in the online book Esparta y su Ley published in the Spanish site Evropa Soberana (that I translated to English here).

Last year I was shocked to learn, after a street meeting of the British National Party that I attended right outside London, that the BNP had no headquarters or a house for its members. Unlike Greece’s Golden Dawn, there are no “Syssitias,” or guilds, for the most dedicated Briton combatants. (About a dozen of those who attended the meeting, myself including, had no choice but going to a pub after the event.) I later learned that the National Front used to have a house in England; not anymore.

Well, well… Wouldn’t you agree with me that, after a few years of working like atomized individuals who don’t even know each other’s faces or voices, and often with international distances separating us, the internet is utterly demoralizing? Wouldn’t our moral skyrocket if we could count with a safe place for the proper Männerbund such as those in the rigorously heterosexual Spartan army guilds? (again, cf. the translated book about Sparta).


We need a home for the most energetic and fanatic soldiers of the 14 words. It would suit the perfect candidate: the “lost kid” that the anti-white System had destroyed. (Unlike this kind of adolescents, bourgeois people are unsuitable: Mussolini, Hitler and now Golden Dawn figured that out. In the words of Commander Rockwell, “A National Socialist is someone who wants to save his race. A conservative is someone who wants to save his money.”) Isn’t it objectionable that the old guard, potentially capable of saving such lost Aryans, are not doing their best? Shouldn’t we try to get a shelter for potential soldiers recruiting among the working classes, or at the very least try to live within a maximum driving distance of fifteen minutes between each other? Who among my visitors is willing to move to form such a guild?

Any white country could serve this purpose, although there are special restrictions in occupied nations like Germany. Unlike most white nationalists, who are mere reactionaries, revolutionary Harold Covington has urged whites to move to the American Northwest and join what he calls the Northwest Front. Unfortunately, before Covington became known as a novelist he was known as a defamer of nationalist leaders. His character disqualifies him for a commander of future guerrilla warfare, after the dollar crashes. The Northwest Front discarded, this is my second question: Which wealthy white might be willing to sponsor the project (renting or purchasing a house)?

What shocked me last year in a bus with the dozen or so nationalist Britons after the meeting was, as I said, that they told me the BNP had not even one house in the whole UK. My guess is that in this darkest hour for the fair race, unlike the sponsoring that Mussolini and Hitler obtained (and apparently the embryonic National Front) there is no sponsor willing to fund a new political party based on racial preservation. If I am wrong—if you believe there’s indeed such a wealthy person—please contact me:

I have no illusions. But where there is a will there is a way—even if it is the will of only two or three fanatically committed priests of the 14 words with no sponsor at all!

It is a pity that Rockwell and Pierce could not find a legitimate inheritor for their respective groups, although in the case of Rockwell it is understandable for his premature death. Regarding Pierce, in and English restaurant-pub Arthur Kemp told me that the most serious error in Pierce’s career was rejecting the formation of a political party to fight in the real world (something that Rockwell so hard tried to do).

Let me put it this way: Unlike those who presently fly the Confederate flag throughout Dixie—again: reactionaries, not revolutionaries—, following Rockwell’s methods would place a new NS party immediately in the spotlight of the most vicious Western media. I know that such group would be forbidden in Germany, but when was the last time that uniformed fascists marched in the US? And in the UK?

I also met Jez Turner last year, the director of the London Forum. OK: he was not in uniform during the street demonstration earlier this month. Originally they were going to, provocatively, hold it in the Jewish area of London, Golders Green, but the MP for the area notified the Prime Minister David Cameron about the “neonazi” demonstration and pressure was brought on the police to deny the “Nazis” their right to demonstrate. So they moved the demo to outside Downing Street, where David Cameron lives.

On the other hand, and with Nazi uniforms, decades ago Rockwell did the same in the very heart of the anti-white regime, Washington D.C., also complaining about Jewish power. He got immediate TV attention—negative of course, but his purpose was recruiting adepts. William Pierce wrote:

The first step was general recognition. His earlier conviction that that goal must be attained at the expense of every other consideration was now stronger than ever. Thus, instead of following the natural urge to dissociate National Socialism from the Hollywood image that Jewry had been building for it for more than three decades, he temporarily threw all hopes of “respectability”—even among other National Socialists—aside and set about turning to his own advantage all the Jews’ previous efforts.

Toward this end he deliberately pinned on himself the label “Nazi” rather than “National Socialist,” using this bit of journalistic jargon which had been coined by the enemy during the early days of struggle in Germany, a term looked upon by National Socialists with about the same feeling that convinced Marxists must look upon the designation “commie” or “pinko”. Behind this step—one which was to cause much misunderstanding and suspicion in days to come—was the cold-blooded realization that a strutting, shouting uniform-wearing, Hollywood-style “Nazi” was vastly more newsworthy, had vastly more “shock value,” than any mere National Socialist.

Pierce’s tribute to Rockwell is a must-read to understand what I have in mind. After a couple of paragraphs, Pierce added:

Despite the news quarantine imposed on him, despite beatings and jailings, despite a chronic lack of funds, despite serious personnel problems, and despite a thousand other troubles and difficulties, his campaign to gain public recognition made steady progress. Newspapers found it impossible to completely avoid mentioning his brash and daring exploits; editors and columnists found irresistible the temptation to denounce or “expose” him. Even radio and television emcees, ever on the prowl for sensation, yielded to temptation and defied the ban on publicity for Rockwell.

The image of George Lincoln Rockwell and the America Nazi Party created by the mass media for public consumption was, of course, a grossly distorted one. Rockwell had succeeded in forcing the media, more or less against their will, to give him publicity.

And a few paragraphs later:

Rockwell’s original program was divided into three phases. The first phase, beginning in March, 1959, was to be a phase of provocative but essentially non-constructive activity, intended to generate publicity and build a public image, no matter how distorted. The second phase was to be a cadre-building phase, during which a strong, disciplined, effective, professional National Socialist organization was to be built and capabilities in propaganda and organizing developed to a high degree. The third phase was to be one of mass organization.

Phase one was masterfully executed. Rockwell proved himself an outstanding tactician in the rough-and-tumble game of smashing through the Jewish blackout barrier.

Phase two, attracting a few idealists to constitute the skeleton of an organizational structure started to be successful, and—who knows?—, hadn’t Rockwell been murdered phase three might have become reality…

Alas, since the fire in Rockwell’s torch was extinguished after the assassination, presently we would have to walk all the way through phase one—as Mussolini and Hitler also did. I imagine myself with a uniformed group picketing during this phase, reciting well-planned slogans about the Hellstorm Holocaust or the Holodomor that the typical man of the street has never, ever heard of. Wouldn’t this risky business be more fun, and heroic, than staying at your mom’s basement in the vain hope that the Luftwaffe key-commandos of your computer will make a difference?

Fact is, whether we follow Rockwell’s tactics or not, would-be soldiers badly need Boys-only, Syssitia-like guilds in every major city of the West.


P.S.: Since this entry is mostly about the two questions in bold-type, please post off-topic comments elsewhere.

My apologies, but I have now deleted all comments in this thread—including my own—as they didn’t focus on the subject of moving, in real life, to form a Männerbund group.

Years ago on my HEARTLAND (Helping Euro-Americans Reclaim Their Land And National Destiny) website, I wrote about the need to have a network of real-world facilities scattered across America. I illustrated my concept with graphics, photos, schematics, etc in order to convey a detailed vision of the idea. I still think it’s a much needed plan but too many activists are addicted to the mental-heroin of Stormfront to make any effort toward that goal.

As for HAC’s “Northwest Front”, I harbor no ill-will toward my fellow WN novelist, but his concept – had it any merit – would’ve taken off by now. The reason it’s a dud (even Dylann Roof publicly refuted it) is not so much Covington’s fault than it is his miniscule group of sycophants who are simply unable to accomplish anything.

Finally, though he went about it all wrong in Leith, North Dakota, I do believe that Craig Cobb is quite intelligent and potentially capable of creating such a Männerbund group up in Antler, North Dakota – IF his flamboyant excesses can be controlled and he has strong assistance and/or proper guidance. But if not him then someone else.

In the end, we need to come together to establish a WN Command Center capable of carrying out legal – but powerful “civil disobedience” activities on a national, coast-to-coast scale using a multiplicity of tactics and techniques in order to topple the complacency of multiculturalism while at the same time targeting Cultural Marxism in a manner different than we’ve ever done before.

About your HEARTLAND project, I like these paragraphs:

In my view, this paucity of on-the-street activism is key to why we are losing ground. Surely, it takes no great leap of insight to understand that any effective national opposition to cultural Marxism must begin by establishing a visible real-world presence of pro-white installations in every major city of the United States, along with many secondary cities and towns. We need such physical locations, to serve as inspirational beacons to Euro-Americans from every walk of life, where we can gather—as others now gather in Masonic lodges, meeting halls, and churches—to organize, plan, and carry out effective media campaigns, street rallies, recruitment drives, and more. We must also reach out to America’s white youth as never before, and win their allegiance.

The time has come—in fact, it is imperative—that a group of interested white patriots convene for the purpose of laying the foundation for a nationwide network of white advocacy meeting halls. As I see it, such a network must be operated on a regular basis by volunteer staff, led by dedicated leadership, or we can never hope to carry the fight to the next level. Without a doubt, we have the talent and I am convinced there will be no shortage of enthusiastic volunteers, provided we can demonstrate a razor-sharp level of professionalism in everything that we say and do.

The name I suggest for this project is HEARTLAND—which stands for Helping Euro-Americans Reclaim Their Land And National Destiny—an acronym which I believe says it all.

I am glad that, after eleven days that I posted this article, at least one person says something germane about the subject. Most nationalists don’t want to see the obvious, that we gotta move our asses in the real world.

Once more, I’ve just deleted twelve more tangential comments in this thread, including my own responses. Please stay focused. (In other threads I allow tangential subjects but the importance of “coming home” to form groups is such that I must ask you to avoid such subjects. Thank you.)

Several White people working together can accomplish more on our streets than a million whites do individually. That is why the networked jew kehillahs are so adamant to stop all instances of developing White unity.

The point of deleting all these comments is that this thread is not about a sterile discussion that tribal whites could perform miracles, but the actual logistics of doing it (e.g., finding a suitable sponsor for “coming home”, etc.).

Thanks for that link. Since my native language is Spanish I could help in translating letters to the mayor.

My “Syssitia” idea is different insofar as a violent revolution is needed to reclaim our civilization. You can imagine what would happen if we ask our spoiled women if they would join us in a wonderful Galicia project where each woman will be having ten babies…!

You want a bucolic Galicia town with no interference from the Spanish government? The only way is to do a stealthy job there for the moment, hiding the fact that we are racists longing for a Nazi ethnostate.

Are you familiar with my compilation of those articles that convey our POV (click on The Fair Race at the sidebar)?
