A core aim of Nationalist Alternative is to safeguard the heritage and identity of the Australian people and culture within the biodiversity of the entire planet. Our appreciation of diverse life must extend beyond the human species and hence includes the various flora and fauna of this vast continent and nearby oceans. In keeping with this mandate, Nationalist Alternative activists have put together over $250 worth of supplies for the activists of the Sea Shepherd.

 

Sea Shepherd are a volunteer based organisation that uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately-balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.’

This article does not concentrate on other elements of their philosophy but specifically supports the direct action they take in protecting and thereby preserving the various forms of whales and other oceanic life in the southern oceans. Indeed their activism is congruent with one of our stickers – Radical Autonomous Resistance

Why positive Nationalism is necessary

The old paradigms associated with Nationalism reflect an image of fear-mongering and negativity which is perpetuated by the media and other self-serving interests. These outdated portrayals consist of angry individuals, namely white single males from poor socioeconomic backgrounds, who’s single modus operandi is to ‘protest’ or ‘oppose’. Nationalism has been given a bad name, and in some respects it’s well deserved. If Nationalism were personified as a friend, it would quite often be perceived as complaining, negative and dysfunctional. Too often activism performed by Nationalists is seen as contrary or in opposition of something, rather than being supportive and nurturing of the things worthy of respect, admiration and love. In a previous article written by Michael Kennedy, he clearly stated “To love your country, make it more lovable.” The same can be said of Nationalism. To love Nationalism, make it more loveable.

Positivity breeds positivity

Louise Hay, a renowned author, has an underlying philosophy of positive affirmation, where she believes strongly in the metaphysical law of attraction. According to Wikipedia:

The law of attraction is a metaphysical belief that “like attracts like“, that positive and negative thinking bring about positive and negative physical results, respectively. According to the law of attraction, the phrase “I need more money” allows the subject to continue to “need more money”. If the subject wants to change this they would focus their thoughts on the goal (having more money) rather than the problem (needing more money). This might take the form of phrases such as “I do have more money” or “I will have more money”.

For Nationalists, rather than the only form of activism being testosterone fuelled and combative, a positive and supporting form of Nationalist activism is also needed. Changing negative stereotypes is a matter of being unashamedly involved and committed to the community. In each action you take, you are representing what it means to be a Nationalist to the community. Act as though you are the only Nationalist an individual might meet in their lifetime. This means working positively and positively working in a community which not only doesn’t share your values, your beliefs or ideals, but is openly hostile towards you.

Nationalism is paradoxically thought to be about segregation from the community. However, as the law of attraction clearly demonstrates, society will always reflect those who are willing to engage in it. Positive activism will support and cultivate goodwill, which in turn will cultivate and support Nationalism. For this reason, Nationalist Alternative seeks to engage in more regular positive activism, that supports various causes of environmental and social significance.
