Reforms for Ferguson & Haiti

As socially-conscious people, Southern nationalists face a question of what to do about the growing problems of places such as Ferguson, Missouri and Haiti. Baltimore, Birmingham, Memphis and North Charleston also immediately come to mind as failed urban centers afflicted with many problems resulting from the imposition of Modernist US bourgeois values and policies. The broader Black Belt region and Mississippi Delta, once prosperous and orderly regions, are also plagued by these problems of extreme poverty, failing schools, criminal violence, gangs, rampant drug consumption and political corruption. When facing these problems we look to our Christian faith, traditional patriarchal values and the lessons of our historical experience for solutions.

SERIOUS REFORMS

We at SF acknowledge the present US social order and welfare system to be a failure in the post-plantation world. We propose that it be replaced by a voluntary work program. Those able-bodied people in declining, chaotic areas such as Furguson who need security, housing, education and healthcare would be able to join the work program. They would be required to engage in productive labor and maintain a clean criminal record (and possibly pass periodic drug tests – a reform Florida was prevented from implementing by the unjust US court system) to receive tax-payer assistance. While in this program and receiving assistance they would be considered wards of the state and would forfeit certain privileges. Their housing areas would be heavily policed and outbursts of violence and rioting would not be tolerated. They would be free to leave the program at any time and once they did so and left the assisted worker housing areas they would regain their forfeited privileges. Those physically unable to work and provide for themselves could remain in the program as long as they wished. The housing areas would not be built adjacent to productive, safe neighborhoods. There would be optional ethno-cultural zones that workers could join to rebuild their community ties and live with those who share their identity. This proposed reform is based as closely as possible on a model of directed labor, hierarchy and patriarchal oversight under which the plantation civilization flourished and enjoyed a high level of culture and influence.

Haitian poverty and emigration has been a persistent problem for the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Dixie and other post-plantation societies. Haiti has long been a failed state, dependent upon outside aid to feed, educate and house its population.

We might work out a deal with Haiti to provide jobs, food, housing, education and healthcare in exchange for leasing a significantly sized piece of land in Haiti on which we would operate a worker program much like we propose for Ferguson. It would be voluntary and those Haitians who lack the necessities of life could join it. It would operate for profit to repay Southern tax payers and would also operate under a moral and social code with the aim of providing patriarchal reform, bettering the lot of the Haitian people and ending the problem Haitian migration currently poses to the post-plantation world. We might eventually be assisted in operating this worker program by a Council of Golden Circle Nations, including the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Venezuela and Brazil.

As Southern nationalists we are looking for long-term, moral and socially-conscious solutions to the problems our post-plantation civilization faces. We want to see our people and others of the former Golden Circle region secure and prosperous in stable, decent societies – something that the present US-led bourgeois and Modernist order has not been able to provide. Our values work. We know this from history. Theirs do not, as we see today in Ferguson and Haiti. It is time for some serious reforms.

  1. Excellent plan. I’d say that I.Q. testing be incorporated to determine what exactly these individuals are capable of, work wise. I think that communal vegetable gardens and even stock raising could be attached to some of the housing establishments, especially in small town/rural areas.

  3. Sir, from everything I observe, both in my life and that of others, it is not possible to be a healthy person, and lead a contented life, in the absence of work. Work is vital for the human soul.

    So, I like the fact it is at the center of your proposal.

    • Yes, productive work is especially vital to a man’s self-confidence and moral character.

      In every tribal society I have studied healthy people were expected to work if they wanted to eat. The tribe would also take care of the aged or crippled where possible.

  4. Sir, there is an awful lot to consider here. Let me play Devil’s Advocate for a moment.

    What would be your response to someone who, argueing against your proposal along these lines, said this :

    ‘Mr Cushman’s proposal for dealing with the high unemployment rate that afflicts minority communities throughout The South, is no more than a lightly veiled version of the old chain gangs – places where disenfranchised minorities were railroaded by unfair court proceedings, and then, once having been sent to rot in decades of hopeless detention, these individuals were deprived of the fruits of their labour by those corrupt officials that ran the system…’

    • It is a line of argument we can expect. But this is a plan for all poor citizens, first of all, not just non-Whites. And it is one specifically aimed at rebuilding community and families. It rewards work, not simple reproduction or the fact of being a certain racial group. It is also voluntary. Anyone can join or leave it at any time. It is meant to be a transition for those capable and motivated while providing a life of dignity through productive labor where the necessities of life are met for those who are not.

      It is also a way of dealing with immigration. There would be no benefits for those who don’t work. And only citizens could join the work program.

      • Sir, this is a lovely answer!; and, I think, for those who are at all disposed to this plan, it is going to do more than suffice.

        That said, it, in and of itself, will not work for those Southerners, in the center, whom you shall be looking to sway; and who, shall be hearing day and night, from our opponents, that this proposal is the very opposite of democracy – that this is, in fact, a repackaged Soviet style work gulag or a Nazi concentration camp for dissidents – above the door of which shall be emblazoned that maxim, by Nietsche, ‘Arbeit macht Frei’.

        That is why I tell you that you need a better answer.

        Please forgive me for asking you to try again. I will await your answer, Sir…

  5. In this one rare case, I have to disagree with someone whose perspectives I endlessly find myself admiring – Mr. Owen. This because, before we arrive at the phase he describes, any Southern Nationalist Party would have to run the gauntlet of an adversarial Yankee ‘democracy’ – all this while attempting to win the hearts and minds of those Southerners, in the center, whose unaffiliated and politically unsavvy ears will be accosted, day and night, by the Yankee media, and those many Southern liberals, who will fight this party tooth & nail.

    After Mr. Cushman plays a seminal role in launching the party, he will be long preoccupied with winning this battle. Framing that battle, now, is key.

    As Harold Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, once said about the exigiencies of positioning oneself for a fight – ‘90% of the battle is won or lost, before the first shot is fired.’

  6. Sir, as it may be I have given you unwitting offence, (in having solicited you to consider rearticulating how you defenced my hypothetical attack on your point, let me say this :

    The trouble with how you explain the fledgling Southern Nationalist Party position, on this issue, is simply this : it is solely positive and filled full of virtuous intentions & hopes.

    That means the opponents will NOT be on the defensive, and, thus, will occupy themselves burying you and yours under constant defamation and caricature.

    When I asked you how you would defend the assured attack of our opponents : (that your plan is merely a rehashing of Soviet work gulags), your reply was to defend it through a carefully articulated reasoning and justification of the position.

    That, in and of itself, will not work.

    Why?

    Because it does not attack what you seek to replace. When you are attacked, defending yourself is mostly a waste of time, unless it is as a temporizing gesture to retake the offence.

    No, when attackt, you must attack back. You must NOT spend much time elegantly justifying yourself and your position, because your foes will not accept it, and will only use it to ridicule you more.

    Oh, what to do, then?

    Attack them – and their positions -immediately! Put the onus on them to explain their system, morally,to justify the horrors of the present system.

    By doing that, you shall give them little time to attack you, and you leave those whom you seek to assuage, a stinging articulation of why they should consider your party.

    Once they have lived with that, they, on their own time, shall take the leap, and go find what it is you propose.

    Our culture has lost what is has, since WWII, because we have either put our heads in the sand, or preoccupied ourselves with defending our culture.

    We have not attacked our opponents effectively, forcefully, and consistently enough.

    We must NOT defend.

    Please, Sir – do not take my admonition to you lightly.

  7. Sir, let me, using your remarks, give you some examples of using your rebuttals to put our foes on the defence.
    First your comments unfettered…

It is meant to be a transition for those capable and motivated while providing a life of dignity through productive labor where the necessities of life are met for those who are not.

    Now a blended comment…

    ‘OUR PLAN is designED to break the generational enslavement imposed on families by the present system; a system which, while purporting to ‘enfranchise it’s citizens’, actually locks souls into an unbreakable cycle poverty, hopelessness, and the violence, crime, and imprisonment which result therefrom.’

    Or another …

    ‘Unlike the present system, which, criminally, has created a permanent underclass of disenfranchised people, OUR PLAN is one of giving hope to ALL disadvantaged people, by bestowing upon them the possibility of changing their situation from one of despair, to one of hope – by their own hands.’

    Or…

    ‘Unlike the present system which purports to make manageable the dysfunctions of one’s sufferings – by removing the sufferer from the ability to do more than tread water in perpetual impotence and despair – OUR PLAN acknowledges the simple truth that one cannot transform one’s life without one being the central transformer himself; that hope must first be brought about by the one hoping, and not those in the distance, who simply yearning keep the sufferer mired in his hopelessness, conspire to build self-serving constituencies for endless political gain.’

  11. One other key principle, in enunciating Southern National points, is to use the ideas and the semantick jargon of the present government, and their supporters, against them; to undermine their policies in the eyes of the general populace, by revealing those policies to be the misanthropick masquerades they are.

    This is very aggressive – pushing your foes off their strong-points and removing them employing their own weapons against them.

    This is, I believe, a vital tactick. From the very beginning of this party, our attack ought begin with an explosive barrage and our signature, ever thereafter, ought be a relentless offensive.

        I am sure we will have many powerful enemies and not much money, in the beginning. That is why the artifice and strategization is going to have to be formidable, right from the start – which is why I propound certain principles to ensure the survival, and proliferation, of our cause.

    • Dear James – anything can devolve into a nightmare. That, in and of itself, does not mean something is, or is not, worth doing.

      Mr. Cushman is trying to piece together a platform for a Southern Nationalist Party that can withstand the intense speculative scrutiny it is going to be given, and yet, be true to the mores of our traditional culture.

      In that platform, there has to be a systemick answer given for how we would handle those who spend a period of their lives in economick misfortune. I believe Mr. Cushman’s idea is a fine one.

      Furthermore, we cannot have a party platform that says : ‘Those who wind up jobless, hungry, and without medical care, will just have to tough it out all by themselves, until death if necessary.’

      Such a policy might appeal to a few Libertarians, but, for the overwhelming majority of those ultimately contemplating our party, it would not fly. In fact, it would totally disqualify us from consideration.

      Do you have an idea you would like to recommend to us?

    • James, I see this as a Centrist solution. Everything about it is optional except the right for able-bodied people to collect welfare while not working. Most people in the South would agree with this. And we would offer them more generous benefits – a real living wage plus housing, healthcare and security – in exchange for working full time. Most people would probably support this too. And we are saying that they can live and work in either homogeneous or mixed groups. What could be more fair than that? Nothing about this plan is oppressive or far-Right. I see it as economically and culturally Centrist. And it would create stable neighborhoods rather than troubled ghettos. That is a major aspect of the plan: it is focused on community building rather than just lifting one individual at a time out of poverty by moving them out of the ghetto but leaving that ghetto intact.
