On his recent radio programme, Keith Preston critiqued different strategies for defeating the present PC Establishment and proposed his own strategy of pan-secessionism. He argues convincingly that Federal politics is basically a waste of time and a distraction for those interested in serious change. They System at that level is too tightly controlled to permit change. Therefore, efforts at running third party candidates for US president or trying to reform the Empire from within Congress should be abandoned. Instead, Preston proposes the creation of local secessionist organisations that are tied to the culture and identity (be it religious, ethnic, racial, cultural, etc) of the local people. Importantly, he also proposes that these organisations cooperate together at the political level against the Empire, supporting self-determination in the various cities, regions and localities throughout the United States. Such cooperation would not be based on shared ethnicity, culture or values (because increasingly there is no majority population upon which a broad secession effort could be based) but rather on a shared desire for survival, self-government and opposition to the PS Establishment. He gives the example of how this might work in his home State of Virginia (which is divided, as he notes, by religion, culture, race, etc), describing how it might be re-organised as independent, local communities in a loose federation. Under such a system, the conservative Southern-dominated regions would be able to control their own affairs and preserve their identity and values while other, different areas would be able to do the same. It’s a strategy to avoid conflict, as Preston notes. There is no reason why such very different people and groups should be forced together under a single central government and then have to compete to see whose values and preferred policies will be pushed onto everyone else.
This proposal by Preston fits in well with the ideology and historical strategy of Southern nationalism. Some of our ancestors realised as early as late 1820s that reforming the US Empire was impossible. They began to focus their attention on the local level, creating grass-roots secessionist organisations within their cultural and ethnic group and doing all they could to undermine the Empire. These were focused primarily in the Lower South, where support for secession was the strongest, and ultimately were successful in changing public opinion, breaking up the Democratic Party and pushing the Southern States to secede. Today we have organisations such as the League of the South. Chapters of Southern nationalists are being formed across Dixie to form the basis of a grass-roots Southern secessionist movement. Dr Michael Hill, the president of the League of the South, has already set the standard for cooperation with other secessionist groups (such as his work with Dr Thomas Naylor and the Vermont secessionist movement). As time goes on and different groups see how destructive the present system is to them and everyone else, we will surely see more cooperation against the Empire and more of a concerted effort amongst various secessionist organisations.
