The Problems of, and Solutions to, Money - Wilberg on Wednesday

The History of Money Power - Usury versus Fiat Money
Gods, religions, tribes, cultures, cities, civilisations and empires have been around for untold millennia. So also have wars, violence, destruction, plunder, slavery and the forced occupations or migrations of peoples. All these phenomena are interrelated . Marx and Engels were among the first to cease using the religious or cultural paradigms of good and evil to seek a particular scapegoat for these phenomena - or to blame one on the other - but instead to seek to analyse their dialectical interconnection and development. Everyone who has read the Communist Manifesto knows of the historic line of social-economic development that they traced - from primitive communism to slavery, feudalism and industrial capitalism. Few readers, even of Das Kapital , are as knowledgeable of their - and particularly Engel’s analysis - of the history and nature of money and usury. Yes there are the formulae relating commodities to Money. C-C (barter), C-M-C (selling in order to buy, and obtain use values), M-C-M (buying in order to sell and accumulate surplus exchange value - or M for money. Yet what is considered far less, even by Marxists, as well as academic historians in general, is the history and nature of money itself - both in the ancient past and in the present day - where a quite different formula ruled and now rules also: M-M-M. Making money from nothing, and then making money, with money from that money - and all this quite independent of any use-values, commodities or even labour - but purely through money in the form of what is now called ‘fractional reserve banking’ i.e. the multiplication of promissory notes or numismata, whether in the form of clay tablets, letters of credit, paper money or figures keyed into an electronic account - but not based on any actual reserves of either simple commodities such as grain or precious metals such as silver or gold. This brings us to the nature of money, not simply as an accounting unit, exchange value or capital - but as debt. Immediately we have a relation established to religion via the notions of sin, guilt and ‘redemption’. The words for debt and guilt are actually identical in German ( Schuld ) and closely related in many religious cultures. The sinner is the debtor. Therefore ‘forgiveness’ related initially and primarily to debt. Debt forgiveness or ‘redemption’ for the peasantry and lower castes was an annual event in early Sumerian civilisation, in which money - as in many other hierarchical and theocratic civilisations such as Egypt - ruled by divine god-kings from the heavens - was an accounting unit defined, created and quantified by law - fiat, which meant also divine law. The institution of state accounted and state issued fiat money and non-interest bearing credit began in the form of a generalised use-value or commodity such as grain or cattle - both of which can be repaid by reproducing themselves biologically. If this proved impossible, there was debt forgiveness to maintain stability and social well-being.

Before, Behind and Beyond Marx
In his pamphlet “Critique of the Gotha Program,” Marx advocated exactly the same alternative to money as the Welsh socialist Robert Owen - to get rid of money and replace it with labour vouchers, as Hitler did. Yet if one famous Marxist thesis declares that “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles”, another, hidden thesis, asserts something quite different, namely that “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of money” - and in particular the long history of a struggle between state money, accounted, quantified and valued by law or fiat on the one hand, and privately accrued debt- and interest-bearing money, created from nothing. Crucial in the evolution of this form of money was the introduction of metal coinage. Aristotle: “Men called bankers we shall hate, for they enrich themselves while doing nothing.” But Plato and Aristotle also disagreed. Plato, unlike Aristotle, was an opponent of private property, and believed in the ‘Chartalist’ principle that money should take the form of a mere token or symbol. Here he anticipated the argument of John Law that “Silver that serves as money with no other use than to buy goods might just as well be replaced by a cheaper material, in the limit, by one that has no commodity value at all, such as printed paper” because “Money is not the Value for which Goods are exchanged, but the Value by which they are exchanged.” On the other hand, what Joseph P. Farrell called the “Babylon’s Banksters” - bullion banksters - went for the ‘Metallist’ thesis that the value of money is and should be intrinsic - based on its own hard won labour-value and its market-value as a commodity. Hence the brutal ancient and modern slave-mines for gold - the conversion of slave ownership from a relatively benign cultural custom into an important source of booty from war, and one which also offers the state rulers and temple priesthoods both a new form of monetary power - and could be used to build up more powerful and well-equipped armies, albeit only through debt to the bullion bankers and slave drivers - who therefore naturally had an innate interest in fostering wars, and all their dire consequences - destruction and destitution that led either to physical slavery or to debt slavery to the same banksters. Engels was more aware of the danger of usury capital than Marx, noting that it was “the principal means for suppressing the common liberty, breaking apart the old communal bonds of the Greek gens, and reinforcing the inequalities and exploitation of the newly emerging class society of the Athenian state”.

“... the growing money economy penetrated like corrosive acid into the old traditional life of the rural communities founded on natural economy … Hence the money rule of the aristocracy now in full flood of expansion also created a new customary law to secure the creditor against the debtor and to sanction the exploitation of the small peasant by the possessor of money…”

“...when men invented money, they did not think that they were again creating a new social power, the one general power before which the whole of society must bow . And it was this new power, suddenly sprung to life without knowledge or will of its creators, which now, in all the brutality of its youth, gave the Athenians the first taste of its might.”

Resistance to the power and rule of bullion and debt-based money in Athens and Persia came only from Sparta - which deliberately used degraded iron as money to defend its fiat currency against silver and gold from the East. In Rome resistance was restored by Julius Caesar, thereby challenging the power of the patrician plutocracy over an impoverished populace. In England it was maintained by the pre-Cromwellian Monarchs (with the exception of King John) who issued tally sticks from the 11th to the 15th century as debt- and interest-free currency. Rejection of the Rothschild banksters was enforced by Napoleon - and, yes, by Tsarist Russia.

In modern times, the battle for fiat money was maintained by the (assassinated) U.S. Presidents Lincoln, Jackson, Garfield and J.F.K. and through the Social Credit movement. State banking and fiat money was used with incredible success by Japan before WW2 (under the influence of the Social Credit Movement), by Germany under Adolf Hitler (under the influence of Gottfried Feder) and by Libya under Gaddafi. It is still maintained by the Isle of Guernsey! Unknown to many is that one of the secrets of Germany’s post-war e conomic success (along with its maintenance and modernisation of its traditional craft and trades apprenticeship system) was its revival, protection and expansion of a significant number of regionally and communally devolved cooperative, public banks - with a share of 40% of total banking assets in Germany. These ‘saving banks’ or Sparkassen are regionally or communally controlled, rather than state controlled, though they operate under state law. They have no owners, but are non-profit savings and credit organisations, designed to serve their local communities, providing low-interest loans for farmers, small and medium-sized businesses, and not engaging in speculative transactions. The attempt to disrupt and destroy rather than replicate this successful regional and communal public banking system, which withstood the 2008 banking crisis, has been an aim of Anglo-American financial and banking interests since the Thatcher-Reagan era.

Some Notes on English History

“In the thirteenth century … the agriculturalist over nearly the whole of Europe was a freer man … England for example, was even in the fifteenth century almost entirely in the hands of thousands of farmers, who were not only legal owners of their land, but possessed in addition far-reaching free rights to common pastures and woodland.” 
Anglo-German philosopher Stuart Houston Chamberlain

From ‘The History of Central Banking’ by Stephen Mitford Goodson:
With the banishment of the money-lenders (Edward III in 1364) and the abolition of usury, taxes were moderate and there was no state debt … Tally sticks were first introduced by Henry II (1100-1135) and would remain in circulation until 1873 …
… With tolerable taxes, no state debt and no interest to pay, England enjoyed a period of almost unparalleled growth and prosperity. The average labourer worked only 14 weeks and enjoyed 140 to 160 holidays. According to Lord Leverhulme, a writer of that time, “The men of the 15th century were very well paid” … a labourer could provide for all the necessities his family required. They were well-clothed in good woollen cloth and had plenty of meat and bread…During their spare hours many craftsmen volunteered their skills in building some of England’s magnificent cathedrals, which reinforces one of the basic tenets of Western Civilisation that without leisure time, the fostering of culture is not possible … The York Minster was completed in 1472 and has the largest expanse of stained glass in the world.

This golden period came to an end with Cromwell - whose Puritanism was financed by Jewish
money (the Jewish usurers even told him he was the Messiah!).

Thirty-three years after Cromwell had let the Jews (back) into Britain, a Dutch prince arrived from Amsterdam, surrounded by a whole swarm of Jews from that financial centre … six years later the Bank of England was established for the purpose of lending money to the Crown. 
A.N. Field All These Things

Henceforth a pattern would emerge where unnecessary wars would be embarked upon which simultaneously increased the national debt and the profit of the usurers. Significantly, most of these wars were started against countries that had implemented interest-free state banking systems, as was the case in the North American colonies and France under Napoleon. This pattern of attacking and enforcing the bankers’ system of usury … includes the defeats of Imperial Russia … Germany, Italy and Japan in WWII, and most recently, Libya in 2011. Goodson

The Great Paradox
The same breed of Jewish money-lenders that heralded from Holland are now freely financing
white nationalist movements such as that of Geert Wilders in Holland! Mr Horowitz’s organisation, Freedom Centre, has paid out $150,000 (£125,000). Some $120,000 of that was given in 2015, making it the largest individual contribution to the political system in The Netherlands in a year. The conservative Zionist think-tank Middle East Forum paid a substantial sum into a legal fund set up for Mr Wilders after he was accused of making racist statements. Two US right-wing foundations, the Gatestone Institute and the International Freedom Alliance Foundation, have sponsored his trips to America. I pray that social nationalist parties in England do not fall prey to this hidden international game - and become mere red-painted Trotskyist or Stalinist pawns in that game.

Fiat Money and ‘Free Energy’ - where Finance meets Physics
There are important and intimate connections between finance and physic s, fiat money and 'free energy '. The 'alchemy' of creating money from nothing can be likened to creating energy from 'nothing'. The question, of course is whether this power rests in the hands of a people’s state or of a tiny elite of private banksters. Another connection between finance and physics is that national financial sovereignty on the one hand, and national energy sovereignty or ‘autarky’ necessarily go together. This is why, in addition to Hitler defying the banksters with state-issued fiat money - but then being forced to fight a war despite trade boycotts and lack of petroleum and rubber - there was also intensive research in Germany into 'free energy' under special departments of the S.S. This in order to ensure energy autarchy in the face of trade boycotts and petroleum shortages. This secret research challenged the established fictions and shibboleths of relativity and quantum mechanics. It also combined conventional with occult science and physics - deriving from earlier pre-war secret societies such as the Vril society (the ‘All-German Metaphysical Society’). Going back even further in history, Joseph P. Farrell claims that a war between god kings, rulers and states issuing their own money, and those wishing to subvert these rulers and their temples and priests using debt-based money and ruthlessly slave-mined silver and gold (to be used purely as money and to finance wars) has not only been going on right through known history , starting with ancient Sumerian, Assyrian, Egyptian and many other civilisations - but has perhaps a 100 million year old pre-history going back to Atlantis - a subject of such great interest to the S.S. that it was intensively researched through expeditions to Tibet and many other countries. This civilisation may have destroyed itself through its advanced sound- and resonance based physics, as a result of which this science was first lost - and preserved only in fragments by secret societies and esoteric thinkers. I believe a sound metaphysical basis for this science can be I found in what I call The Awareness Principle - a principle which has applications in fields as diverse as economics, medicine and the sciences. The Awareness Principle is a unified field theory of awareness - one which denies that awareness is either a product or the private property of any localised body or being, and has an essentially non-local or field character. A physics based on this principle would recognises awareness itself as that universal ‘aether’ (much spoken of by free-energy physicists) which is the very source of all ‘matter’ and all ‘energy’ - and the very stuff’ of which, like dreams “they are made on” (Shakespeare). This new philosophy I call ‘dialectical trans-materialism’. It follows Marx’s insight ( Theses on Feuerbach ) that all previous materialisms have denied the subjective dimension of human sensuous activity and labour.

The chief defect of all previous materialism (including Feuerbach’s) is that the object, actuality, sensuousness, is conceived only in the form of the object of perception, but not as sensuous human activity, practice [Praxis], not subjectively . Karl Marx

Open letter to the open-minded people trapped on Stormfront

SWPE is a party of revolutionaries.  Although few in number, we are steadily building the Vanguard, with the aim to grouping together people of quality, rather than going the 'normal' path of political parties, which is in recruiting anybody at all in order to build a mass membership.

We employ a strategy of open cooperation with all who oppose global capitalism.  We do not limit ourselves to only working with people who are already on an ideological path which is almost indistinguishable from our own.  Self-ghettoising is a form of self-destruction, and we see no reason to help our class enemies by playing the games of division which they have created to contain and control dissent.

SWPE activists have reached out to potential comrades across the spectrum.  We have found that our open approach has led to problems as well as opportunities.  This does not mean that we should halt our approaches, but perhaps that we need to be more selective in who we attempt to enter into dialogue with.


The following is an exchange on the far right forum 'Stormfront', although the answer in point 4 has been updated to fit with potential changes in tactics:

Questions by 'Patriot93', followed by responses
  1. SWPE view of Worker's Ownership, Syndicalism and European Socialism as advocated by Oswald Mosley's post-fascist Union Movement (UM) during the 1950's?
  2. SWPE view of National Socialism?
  3. SWPE view of the National-Anarchist Movement?
  4. Any SWPE plans to register with the Electoral Commission and contest elections, or do you stand for Revolution?
1. Workers ownership is vital.  SWPE policy is to make the people the owners of everything.  We would abolish the stock market and socialise the entire economy.  Overseas ownership and outsourcing of labour would come to an end.  The economy must be organised so that it is for the benefit of the people.  We would abolish income tax and in place would price goods so that they would generate profits which would be used to fund the nation.  We have members who favour Guild Socialism and others who favour Workers' Cooperatives.  For larger concerns, Syndicalism is a worthwhile economic ideology.  Our underlying policy is to abolish ownership as it is currently understood and to make all people partners in the economy as a whole.  European Socialism is an ideal to fight for, but not Europe A Nation.  We want freedom.  European cooperation is one thing, European statehood another.

2. National Socialism.  This was an ideology which didn't have a chance to get off the ground.  We prefer the Strasserite model to the Hitlerian one, but see both as foreign ideologies based in the period around WW2.  They are worth studying to see where they had strengths and where they failed, but they should not become fetishes.  Living in the past won't win the victory in the present which is needed to secure the future.

3.  NAM. National Anarchy has its good points.  Defence of nature, initiative, self reliance, family etc are all good.  The problem is that the vision of Kropoktin, (and to a degree Bakunin) etc relies upon people being decent, unselfish and saintlike.  SWPE is fighting against tyranny, greed and selfishness.  If the Ruling Class were overthrown and no measures put in place to prevent their return, the victory would be short lived.  National Anarchists call us Statists because we believe that we need a strong state to stop exploiters rising up and replacing one set of tyrants with another.  We have good relations with some National Anarchists.  We disagree with their view of human nature.  Perhaps we are more cynical and less trusting.

4. We are revolutionaries.  We are in the process of considering the option of registering with the electoral commission.  We support the efforts of people who join in the democratic process on a seat by seat basis.  We have publicly endorsed the Populist Party and we are supportive of the Wessex Regionalists.  We would not stand against people who advocate policies which we can broadly support, because if we did, this would inevitable join in the frenzy of vote splitting.  By not standing we can give support to candidates who promote similar ideals and in this way spread the ideals to the general electorate.  A lose coalition of small parties campaigning in areas of strength is much better than them fighting one another.  In Parliamentary elections, parties have to give the government £1000 per seat and all their membership information to stand.  If everyone is doing this the government will hold on to a lot of deposits and get a lot of information about who opposes their corruption.  We can see little merit in handing over members' hard-earned cash in contests which are rigged to begin with.  Local elections are different - they are free to stand in for one thing!  It makes sense to stand in local elections as a way of gaining publicity and in this way helping to develop the party by attracting activists who might otherwise not be aware of us.  This is something which we are considering doing in the future.

(Comment to anti-Socialist post attacking SWPE) Now to turn to the statement that should the Stormfront writer meet any of us with our Sword and Sickle badges, he should consider us just another bunch of red tossers, if you do meet any of us wouldn't it make more sense to strike up a conversation?  To the poster in question, you may be a capitalist (I don't know, its just an assumption), you may hate people because you have fallen for the right wing good left wing bad tool of the Ruling Class (sorry if I'm wrong but your post suggests this), but regardless you will find SWPE activists to be happy to speak to people of all political persuasions.

The problems we face are global in dimension and we need to work together.  You may not agree with us on many issues, but even if we can unite one issue at a time that is better than fighting each other.


As a result of this discourse and a few other posts calling for the Stormfront community to wake up to the lies of national capitalism, globalism and the highly divisive identity politics which so-called white nationalists indulge in to the point of obsession, complaints were made and the administrators saw fit to disable our active account there.  They did this so that the account still looks like it is in use, just inactive - which indicates that the censors at work are keen to not lower the number of registered users, but to make sure people who are a threat to their cosy self-adulation forum, are silenced.  Interestingly the poster (one of a handful) who bucked the trend and engaged in intelligent conversation, 'Patriot93', is also listed as no longer active...

There are good people in most political arenas.  For a myriad of reasons, people can become loyal to causes which are not worth supporting, and which in many cases, really deserve to be opposed. The reactionaries who run Stormfront are doubtless aware that alongside people with a fetishistic attachment to 1930s imagery, a lot of the people who use their forum are simply confused individuals who know that Globalisation is a problem, but have no idea what the solution is. The administrators cannot afford to have Revolutionary Socialists shining a light on the false solutions of fascism, and going into their domain to rescue those who have not been totally indoctrinated into the path of futile 'larp' rebellion. This is bad news for them. Our active account has been disrupted, but there are others, and the light of Socialism cannot be eclipsed by the darkness of reaction.

For those who have come across us in the most unexpected of places, and have taken the time to seek out more information, the next step is ask yourself if we are really the bogeymen you have been warned about. Are you awake to the harmful nature of globalisation? Are you awake to the reality of war without end all for the sake of corporate imperialism? Are you awake to the fact that Capitalism is the economics of death? If the answer is Yes, but there is something holding you back from becoming fully conscious of the lies of the Ruling Class; something preventing you from finally breaking through the wall of propaganda which paints Socialism as the enemy, and all the aforementioned as the protection from such 'evil' people as us, then you need to take a step back and consider that the ideological crutch which gives you strength, is actually taking your strength away and giving it to those who are destroying the world you love.

If your path to awakening has seen the idols of false rebellion fall, and you are ready to take your side with the only solution to Global Capitalism, Socialism In One Country. If you are ready to join the fight for Class and Nation, then get in touch.

A Message to Socialists and Social Nationalists in England and the U.K. - Wilberg on Wednesday

“For centuries, no other country brought more grief to the planet, destroyed more lives,
ruined more nations and cultures, and stole more natural resources from the ‘natives’,
than the United Kingdom. All this was done with a straight face, all explained and justified by the most advanced propaganda apparatus on earth, all ‘morally defended’. The entire twisted concept of British-style ‘justice’ was first introduced at home, and then exported to many corners of the globe. It went on for several long centuries, and it goes on until now: the rapists are introducing globally accepted moral codes. Mass murderers are running international courts of justice. Notorious liars and thieves are teaching the world about ‘objectivity’. Gurus of disinformation are even ‘educating’ their own children, as well as the children of elites from all parts of the world, in their ‘prestigious’ factories of indoctrination – schools and universities. Of course there are some countries that have tried very hard to outdo the UK in terms of brutality, greed and tactics of deception … They really have been competing determinately and zealously, but despite all their efforts, they never truly managed to come close to the forerunner.” Andre Ziltchek

Given these facts, social nationalists in England and the U.K. bear a historically unique
responsibility , including a responsibility to:

1. Recognise that the English capitalist ruling caste can, historically, be seen as not only the
oldest but also and indeed the most perfidious in the world, i.e. that for many peoples the
phrase ‘ Albion perfide ’ was a bitter reality for many.

2. To prepare for the decline of this most perfidious caste - and see through its tactics in trying
to save itself.

3. To erect an ideological wall between social nationalism and the new and aggressive forms
being taken by capitalist nationalism - both in Britain, the U.S. and in many countries or parties
of Southern and Eastern Europe. Without this wall, true social nationalism in England risks
degeneration into something more akin to the oxymoron of ‘Daily Mail socialism’. An
‘oxymoron’ could, of course, be defined ‘a contradiction in terms’.

4. To promote and revive great English national music, painting and poetry on political sites
and in political literature - not just policies, platforms and polemics - and in this way give
nationalist politics some authentic national soul.

5. To attend with due diligence and appropriate measures to the low birthrate and declining
demographic of white Europeans (something not helped by their random and arbitrary
deportation from the U.K.) but that would be helped by sparing all couples from the need for
double-income wage slavery - for example through a Finnish-style universal minimal income.

6. To protect and promote regional identity and economies, for example through regional
currencies and local public or cooperative banks like the Bank of North Dakota.

7. To enlist and educate a special cadre of party members drawn from established Hindu,
Jewish and Islamic communities to promote the radical politicisation of these communities on
the basis of a shared Eurasianist, anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist platform.

Taking up the Challenge
Again, we cannot agitate or campaign against the contradictions of capitalism - or the dire
consequences for the British peoples of the coming and historic phase of its perhaps even
terminal crises and decline. The challenge in taking on this great weight of responsibility
is therefore above all to simply see clearly what is happening to capitalism in and of itself,
and then wait - not in the sense of twiddling thumbs - but by educating the people and
patiently preparing for that time when the realisation of socialist policies will have nothing
to do with shouting ‘demands’ but will be something both available and demanded by the
concrete situation itself. The vision of devolved cantons and communities based on mixed
agrarian and industrial cooperatives has a long and virtuous history in English socialism,
art and culture. It is a vision that could, at the right time, be brought to life - if given life by
both local government and state issued money and currencies, and with the help of new
service and manufacturing technologies. This in turn could lead to the transformation into
a moneyless and stateless ‘communist’ society and economy on the Ubuntu model of
Michael Telligner. In this context, allow me to present once again my redefinition of
‘socialism’ and ‘communism’:

Socialism’ - the abolition of the power of the banks to create and control the money supply of
nations through loans - or by restricting their lending. Instead: the nationalisation of money-creation and its centralisation in the hands of the nation state - so that public spending becomes debt-free.

Communism’ - the evolution of a moneyless society in which each and all individuals freely contribute to their local communities their own most unique creative potentials and labour talents - in return for which they receive free provision of the products and services of others.

From the ‘what’ to the ‘how’ - beginning now

In preparing to lead society in these new directions, in essence, the type of work that socialists are needed to do will be an entirely new form of work for society - of ‘social work’. For there will many dispirited people who will be in dire need of help, education, practical guidance and spiritual encouragement. In this respect the model of Islamic organisations like Hamas and others - combining politics with social defence and welfare work through their community welfare militias - is a worthwhile one to consider, and an important role also for socialist youth under mature leadership and mentoring. It will also be important for socialists to exercise leadership not only on a policy level - the level of ‘thought leadership’ and of ‘what’ socialists propose, but also on a practical level of ‘the how’ - of how , for examples devolved communities, cantons or Yugoslav-style federations can begin to be set up through united individual and group initiatives, leading - bottom up - to free communities of communities. So it is not just in the realm of welfare but also in the realm of independent community building that socialists have social work to do in forging new individual, relational and communal identities. This work cannot consist in merely attacking existing communities of any sort. For again, if any community or people can define itself only in negative relation to other peoples and communities it remains essentially in thrall to them - and at the same time lost to itself.

The Ruling Caste's Manipulation of Brexit - Wilberg on Wednesday

The looming post-Brexit contradiction

A historically unparalleled contradiction will ‘hit the fan’ for the English ruling political caste
- being now threatened for the first time with the loss of its own centuries-old capitalist ‘constituency’ of City workers and bankers, European and global manufacturing and service corporations who fear trade tariffs and rely on skilled migrant workers, its use of unskilled immigrant labour to exploit in agriculture (though at least not with the ‘bonus’ of sex-slavery as in Sicily), its loss of the migrant workers on which the whole housing industry, the NHS etc. depend (although naturally there is no need for the ruling caste to concern themselves with social housing or health). Prognosis - the possibility of ever greater civil discontent as, behind all the distracting Brexit blather, a barrage of ever more vicious austerity cuts, made worse by rising inflation, travel and housing costs goes unnoticed - and bite harder, but with no funding to pick up the pieces for the homeless, unemployed, the working poor and all those literally disabled or made dependent on food banks by this continuing barrage of cuts. Then there is the threat of falling inward investment, and the potential voluntary exit from the UK, not just of corporations but of a key economic demographic of young people, and of skilled workers and employees.

Any answers for the ruling caste?

Not many - except throwing Britain’s doors wide open and making it a most welcoming island tax haven for the ruling global caste, a most welcoming property playground for billionaire Saudi head-choppers, Bahraini and Qatari investors, a most welcoming ecological playground for eager American ‘healthcare’, fracking and GM agro- and food corporations - all whilst cutting corporation tax to an all-time low! Oh yes, and hopefully salvaging our thriving arms export business and selling to all and sundry - no questions asked. In a word, the answer for the ruling caste reads: to export our sovereignty to a motley band of pirateering, privatising and asset-stripping corporations - and their nations. At least that way the ruling caste will remain in clover, but now transformed into a mere money-grubbing plutocracy. Alternatively, keep the one link with Europe that could serve the ruling caste with a diversionary agenda. You’ve guessed it - war - but now against rather than with Russia. Meanwhile proceed with ever-intensified neo-liberal austerity and the immiseration of the British people to a Dickensian level of poverty, the reduction of the U.K. - and the destruction of all sense of community except through Empire-nostalgic identitarian jingoism and racism - which defines the rich history and identity of the white people of the U.K. purely in terms of other peoples and their identities, in this way dialectically negating rather than affirming ‘white identity’ itself.

From Capitalist Contradictions to Capitalist Irrationalism

Recently we have also seen the rise, not just of aggressive capitalist nationalism but also of a new phenomenon: overt capitalist irrationalism . The inherent contradictions of capitalism - and their consequences having long reached a point at which they cannot anymore be rationalised away, the previously disguised irrationalism of capitalist politics now finds expression in the irrationally and internally contradictory fantasies that dominate the new and aggressive form of national capitalism displayed by both British and American political leaders - which amounts to nothing more than government by and for billionaires. On the other hand, the now outright irrationalism of U.S. and British governments offers social nationalists the opportunity to shift the focus of their discourse from questions of Brexit, immigration and Islam to the real issue: the degeneracy of the English ruling caste and its overgrown and world-straddling foster-child - U.S.-Zionist hegemony and warmongering. As philosopher, I furthermore suggest that the claim of capitalism and its so-called democracies to have inherited from the Enlightenment a universal principle of reason and rationality was a false one right from the start - unless of course, one first reduces ‘reason’ itself to a mere capacity for utilitarian technical, monetary and political calculation - often of the most cynical sort and for purely utilitarian and capitalist purposes. This degeneration did not go unnoticed by the English poets, by the watertight anti-materialist logic of the Irish philosopher George Berkeley - or by many politically-minded writers, thinkers and philosophers in Germany prior to WW1 and following WW2. One need only think of the immense and ground-breaking challenge to capitalist ‘rationality’ from the dialectical reasoning of both Hegel and Marx - and the poetic or “meditative thinking” of perhaps the greatest thinker since Aristotle and Plato - the now much-maligned Martin Heidegger.

A Historic Question

Will the post-Brexit contradictions faced by the English ruling caste now become so acute that we can effectively say that - in that very same land which led the world in pioneering capitalist development, colonialism and imperialism - (which is why Marx came here to study it!) capitalism may now be looking into the face of imminent and irredeemable collapse. If the answer to this historic question is yes, then socialists in England and the British isles have perhaps the biggest and most difficult historic challenge to face in the entire history of capitalism, for England is already beginning to show all signs of a ‘failed state’.

Understanding Language as a Cornerstone of Society

The Welsh Assembly has passed a motion calling for the expansion of the Welsh language, with the aim being for 1 million people to be fluent in the Welsh language throughout Wales by 2050. SWPE applauds First Minister, Carwyn Jones, and the AMs who have worked to push for the protection and promotion of the ancient language, which has been in decline for many years, and could disappear entirely if the English language is allowed to continue to dominate.

The support for the Welsh tongue may appear to be a strange move from a party which is based in England, but this is to misunderstand the nature of SWPE.  Our party is not an 'Anglo-Saxon' supremacist organisation.  We fully appreciate that the English nation is the product of the admixture of the original Britons, with the Celts and more recent arrivals such as the Norse, the Germanics and others.

SWPE stands in total opposition to all manifestations of Globalisation.  Ours is the purest form of Socialism In One Country.  We believe in the promotion of our culture, as the foundation of our society.  Language is an important aspect of who we are, and it has been used by the Capitalist Globalisers as a weapon against us.  The modern form of English (the Americanised global language) is a problem which has to be addressed.  We can use language as a barrier against the machinations of the destroyers of sovereignty.  Our support for the Welsh language is rooted in a belief in the strengthening of the distinct cultural and linguistic characteristics of the nations of the UK.

Anglo-Saxon supremacists have been pitted against Celtic supremacists to create a false division between the peoples of England and Wales.  DNA-research has found that contrary to the myth of the Anglo-Saxons pushing the Celts into Wales, the two peoples mingled, with the 'English' remaining a Celtic people, albeit with a slightly higher percentage of Germanic blood than our brothers and sisters in the part of the country labelled 'Wales'.  SWPE understands that 'Wales' is a derogatory term created to label as foreigners the Celtic people who did not abandon the Celtic tongue and submit to the German dialect of 'English'.  We are one people, divided falsely, pitted against each other as a way of keeping us from realising our unity and throwing off our oppressors - the Ruling Caste who came to our shores in 1066 as the bankers of William the Conquering Bastard, then again as the financiers of William the Orange Bastard.

The Welsh language - or to use its correct name, Cymraeg - is a vestige of the language which we all spoke before the Germanic migrations.  There is no real difference between the people of Cymru and the people of England, other than language - this too is largely a myth, considering that the majority of Cymru has submitted to speaking the bastardised version of the Anglo-Saxon Englisc, which passes for English today.

SWPE calls for the artificial division of the Cymry and the English to come to an end, and for the peoples of the entire territory of EnglandCymru to accept that we are one people, with a common heritage, a common culture, and a common future.  The Ruling Class have imposed French upon us as the language we must all learn when passing through the mental slaughterhouses which they call the education system.  The legal system rests upon an earlier despotic language foisted upon us by the Romans.  A Free and Sovereign EnglandCymru would have no need for the people to be forced to learn the language of the oppressors, whether French or Latin.

We propose that the English language be cleansed of French and Latin influences, bringing it back to a workable version of the original Englisc tongue.  We propose that Cymraeg is not only taught to the people in the geographical area currently known as Cymru, but also to everyone in the area currently known as England.  We want our people to be bilingual in the old language of the land, as well as the one which came after and was adopted by most of our ancestors. Bilingualism is a tool which aids creative thought, making for a stronger and healthier society. Breaking free from the tyranny of globalisation is much easier if we can shield our people from the mind-rotting propaganda of the likes of MTV, CNN, Hollywood etc, by removing our country from the globalist web.

The 'Welsh Assembly' (Cynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru) has stated that to double the number of 'Welsh' speakers would take a generation of education. What we are calling for is a total and permanent revolution which will see our people freed from the global capitalist nightmare, and restored to true sovereignty forever.  The restoration of language will take generations, but unlike democratic socialists with one eye on the next election, our view goes beyond the immediate and into the distant future.  Capitalism will fail - this is inevitable.  What is far more difficult is the task of keeping it down and building something which cannot be crushed by the global parasites. Sovereignty is vital for the revolution to succeed. Maintaining Sovereign languages which are outside the global reach, is necessary, and is something good in itself.

The Immigration Question - Wilberg on Wednesday


An issue? No question. But even more so a symptom - a result of British colonialism and later of countless brutal U.S. and Zionist wars of aggression in the Middle East. But as in football, do not underestimate the Germans. Even in much-scorned ‘refugee welcoming’ Germany the number of asylum applications has dropped by 600,000 in one year. But behind the refusal of the U.K. and many other European countries to let in and pay for the care of a few thousand young child refugees (of the sort now being held in Greek and Turkish concentration camps, where they are brutalised, self-harm or even attempt suicide) is the same cynicism that has led to child poverty continuing to rise in the UK itself (up 100,000 in one year) . As for the current European refugee crisis, this is not a result of the European Union but of the lack of real European unity in creating a clear plan to deal with it - because what that would need most of all is not polemical debates about mosques, hijabs or cultural identity but 1. The identification of its true causes, 2. money - the money necessary, for example, to train up British workers to the level of their European or Asian counterparts, or to educate both Europeans and non-Europeans in Europe’s rich cultural heritage - whose Greek roots (for example the works of Aristotle) were saved from complete extinction under Arab caliphates of the past . 3. Money again - in the form of help in reconstructing Syria, most Syrian refugees - whether displaced within or outside the country - having no greater desire than to return to their own homes or homeland. 4. Not letting the ruling caste and its media use immigration issues as a front behind which to carry austerity cuts to even greater extremes, the consequent rise in poverty having already reached an all time high of over 14 million - and their aim to transform Britain to their own neo-feudal plutocratic fiefdom. Then there is the 122 billion Pounds the government will need to borrow from the banksters just to pursue the Brexit process. But in the face of all these issues of money we continue to confront the Big Lie that public spending must be restrained in order to ‘make ends meet’, i.e. pay off debt to the international banking system. And this despite such absurd contradictions as spending over three billion pounds just to strip 160,000 disabled people of Personal Independence Payments - revealing how the ruling caste abuses whatever money it controls for its own agenda of aggressive class war.

Immigration and the refugee crisis in a global-historical context

Young Calais male immigrant from dark event in Africa - no housing, no money:

“We blame them, for what they did to Africa! Let’s assume that they (the Europeans) did not spoil our country, you wouldn’t have seen me here.”

Call it blowback or even ‘karma’ if you will. But Marx had a cunning eye for the historical and dialectical essence of ‘karma’ an unfoldment of the contradictions of class society.

  • 1. As ‘blowback’ from the British Empire

“Britain came to one of the richest countries in the world in the 18th century and reduced it, after two centuries of plunder, to one of the poorest.” Indian MP and author Shashi Tharoor.

According to Tharoor Britons suffer “historical amnesia” over the atrocities and plunder committed by their empire which the British educational system failed to tell the real story of - and claimed Britain would have to accept Indian workers and students freely moving across its borders if it wanted to sell its goods in Indian markets following Brexit. Then there was the arbitrary border of Pakistan and ‘Hindustan’ (‘India’) imposed by the British - with all its horrendous human consequences. All this history - and yet there are those who still wonder why the hell there are such significant Pakistani and Indian communities in England!

  • 2. As Blowback from the U.S. Empire

4 millions Muslim dead and many more lives and families destroyed as a result of U.S. imperialist wars of aggression. Yet there are those who still think that the effect on the U.K. of today’s global refugee crisis - which has an almost historically unprecedented scale - can be blamed on lax European or British immigration policies. With respect to Syria in particular, it is of course forgotten that there are over 6 million internally displaced Syrians - or that of the almost 5 million Syrian refugees, only 10%, have fled to Europe - with an almost negligible number seeking asylum in England. Moreover it is largely rejection of asylum applications before entry in a country that creates a problem of ‘illegal’ immigration. Meanwhile the historically biggest troublemakers in Eastern Europe, Poland in particular, refuse to accept a mere 5,000 migrants from Sweden, which is about the same number of refugees as the Czech Republic, another old troublemaker of the 20th century, has let in. Mantra: just blame the Germans for the whole problem - and make sure they pay the price!

Migrant criminality in Germany
A rise to 402.741 from 2014 to 2015, out of a total of 6.330.649 registered crimes . Not insignificant, and largely due to the high proportion of single young males let in. But also not to be confused with the wave of false flag ‘terrorist attacks’ in Germany and elsewhere.

Islamic Terror Attacks and their Victims
“In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97 per cent of fatalities over the past five years.” It also states that Muslims are seven times more likely than non-Muslims to be the victims of terror.”

Between 2006 and 2015 alone there have been more than 40,000 horrific terrorist attacks in Iraq alone, causing over 70,000 Muslim deaths - but not one of them made headline news in Europe. The few attacks that have occurred in Europe - including the notorious Mossad and British Intelligence managed ‘false flag’ attacks in France and London, pale into virtual insignificance in the face of these figures. Muslims in Iraq and other Middle East countries - not British, European or American whites - are the main victims of Islamic terrorism - and continue to be most threatened by it. Saudi Arabia and now Turkey are the centre of control and administration for international terrorism, Riyadh’s and Ankara’s negative influence being felt from Syria and Libya through to Pakistan, Afghanistan and the Caucasus, all encouraged and supported by Washington - which continues to follow the more than one-century old geo-strategic plan of the British Empire directed against the integration of the Eurasian continent - and against all Middle Eastern states which, like Libya, - until it was destroyed - successfully operated state banks free of the international banking mafia and used its own oil for the enormous benefit of its people - and not a vile clique of princes and sheikhs.
