    Anglo-Saxons Most Individualistic

    I found this great article on Kevin McDonald's site, and I thought Id like to share.

    All Germanic countries trend towards individualism according to these studies, but the Anglo-Saxon countries trend towards it to an extreme degree.

    Wow! Those charts yield some incredible results! China being on the extreme end of collectivism, and countries like the USA on the extreme end of individualism couldn't be more spot on.

    Thank you for these findings- what a treasure.

    Thanks for the link to the study. It really shows that the economic, governmental and social systems we Anglo-Americans developed are a genetic expression of our particular ancestry.

    Of course there is the downside of most of us not having a strong cultural identity. It shows why boards like this are important to foster a cultural consciousness based upon our Germanic ancestry and not just the meaningless term "white".

    We need Anglo-Saxon studies in kindergarten.

    That is who we are, and who God intends us to be forever. Lets celebrate it, cultivate it, and embrace it instead of choking our souls with self-loathing, multiculturalism, and corporate-mush-crap-consumerism.

    Im certainly glad I found this place, skadi has opened my eyes and educated me in a million different ways. Ive never been a more self-assured, confident person in my entire life

    One Volk. One Tribe. One Destiny.

    Becouse of their extreme individualism, Anglo-Saxons have become a tool for other ethnicities.

    Individualism can be a double-edged sword when it comes to working together. I guess it's in our nature, however, according to this paper.

    Individualism is great when the individuals have a common heritage and destiny - but it's terrible when you have a short-sighted inhomogeneous society like we have at the moment.

    East Asian countries have always favoured top-down authoritarianism and collectivism, from Confucius to Mao.

    I could go for 'rogue nationalism' on the parts of sovereign folks, but am more collectivist within this sphere. I don't believe in individualism without the family component, so a man and wife may form a compact for their interest without regard for specific religious or political objectives, because it is up to them to decide what courses of action to take in life, especially with child rearing, which ought to be helped by grandparents and grandchildren should look up to them likewise. Growing up, I was the fourth generation alive at once and my first born even became the fifth, as my father's maternal grandmother still lived. I would hope all such close descent across cousinages keep together for common purposes, but hardly have the means to influence more than that and have resented strangers' unsolicited impositions.

    Andrew Fraser discusses this in his book The WASP Question, which he explains as being a result of the initial migration of the Angles, Saxons, etc to the British Isles. There was an element of voluntarism in this settlement as choice was involved in migrating to Britain as opposed to staying on the mainland. Men swore allegiance to leaders of these war-bands and later kings, which gave great importance to the concept of giving oaths (against the backdrop of Germanic/IE culture of honour). Fraser even remarks this is probably why deep down we're still moved by "others" when they offer oaths of loyalty to our ideals of nation because of how ancient this phenomenon is among us. One of the positives of this is an evolution to the idea of supra-tribal state institutions and modern statecraft, which the English have always excelled at. But the argument could be made that an obvious downside is that in this phenomenon is the kernel of the very idea that anyone offering loyalty to the king/state/community can be a citizen.

    But this plays into the cheap dichotomy that is individualism vs collectivism. Although I am sure most of us know by now that unlimited individual "freedom" really represents another kind of totalitarianism. Rather what is more interesting and less discussed is individuality, and the West's appreciation of this concept is what differentiates and elevates the West from the rest. Individuality referring to the essential of man, the bare person. It may surprise some self-identified national socialists that individuality was considered a key component of the coming national socialist state by both Hitler and Rosenberg. Hitler discusses this is section 4.2 (vol. II) of MK as the primary driver of progress, and argued the purpose of the NS state was to facilitate the accession of these individuals to leadership. Rosenberg several times discusses individuality as a creative force in Myth of the 20th Century. Before this, the concept features to varying extents in Thomas Carlyle's "Great Man Theory" and can also be drawn from Nietzschean philosophy.

    Point being that if there ever was a square to be circled, it was done long ago.
    If only you knew how bad things really are
