Enoch Powell was hated by fellow politicians but loved by the common man.

Politically, he was a failure due to his inability to play nicely and tow party lines. To the working classes, he was a champion because that inability was fueled by conviction to his beliefs regardless of cost.

The fact that he, despite being prescient on so many issues from immigration to the futility of a European Union, is still talked about as a crank and ‘old white racist’ says nothing about him but plenty about those who got so many things wrong, yet escape criticism.

To me, Powell is the ultimate example of a true leader, a man who saw his message as being far more important than the negative consequences and stigma he would receive for delivering it. When people ask why there is so much apathy from the general public towards the political process, the answer is obvious; no courage, no intellect, no Powells.

One day, history will allow the true story of Enoch Powell to come to the fore. One day, he will be vindicated.

“And you that sought for magic in your youth but desire it not in your age, know that there is a blindness of spirit which comes from age, more black than the blindness of eye, making a darkness about you across which nothing may be seen, or felt, or known, or in any way apprehended.”

—   Lord Dunsany

“The typical Norwegian home is — taking a long-view of history — an extremely, extremely wealthy place. To re-use an appropriate cliche, the average modern Norwegian is a thousand times richer than even great, eternal King Olaf. The amount and variety of food: greater. The amount and variety of alcohol: greater. The amount and variety of home comforts: greater. The amount and variety of entertainment: incomprehensible to a Year-1980′er, let alone a Year-1080′er! Living in such material wealth and comfort, according to the meta-Enlightenment claim, should have thrown man into a new Utopian age. Instead, material wealth and comfort have largely killed man’s desire to do anything worthwhile, and thus his desire to civilize the surrounding barbarism that is the state of nature. Norway’s fertility rate is — like in so many industrialized, developed countries — below replacement rate. This single statistic alone is proof that modernity is failing humanity, and that, from the civilizational standpoint, the Norwegian civilization is transitioning into a state of decadence — or, if one considers the extra-European hordes moving in as “refugees” and “immigrants” (read: invaders, looters), from a state of decadence to one of barbarism. A country that, on average, is not confident and virile enough to transmit its biological life and cultural lifestyle to a new generation is one crying out for help as it slowly suffocates in affluence.”
