I have written about the role of fraternal organizations for non-elite whites here and here. I have an idea of what it would be, but an idea does not make an organization. Here is my concept, in the form of a charter or FAQ. I would appreciate comments and interest in going further. I’m not a leader, I’m not even a joiner. But I would like to do something.
The Ancient Brotherhood of Shepherds and Foresters
The Ancient Order of Shepherds and Foresters is a fraternal organization of the people of Europe wherever on earth they live. The AOSF works to provide mutual assistance and support, charity, and brotherhood among our people.
Why the Brotherhood?
Since the most ancient, unremembered times our people have live by principles of justice, equity, honor, commitment, and love. The people, civilization, culture and society of Europe have been the best in the world. Sometimes our rulers have been just and sometimes evil, but through most of time we have not depended on our rulers for anything except protection from outsiders. In recent centuries, the ideologies of capitalism and communism have told Europeans to see themselves as individuals in their relations to each other and the state, and they have been guaranteed prosperity and safety for this choice. These promises of prosperity and safety have been shown not merely to be empty but to be active, malicious deceptions, so the Brotherhood seeks to return us to the old system of mutual assistance.
We have always relied on such groups as families, churches, and guilds to provide for assistance when needed and to provide for opportunities for fruitful work. In the early years of capitalism friendly societies were founded so that people working in cities could have these same benefits.
In ancient times people without land or position could live on unclaimed, uncultivated lands herding flocks or hunting and foraging. The shepherd, beyond being a symbol of care and concern, was a person who could live off rugged grassland without a landlord or master. The forester could live, hunt and forage with others but was expected to be able to help fight off intruders, and before being admitted would have to prove his fighting skills.
Both shepherds and foresters were used as models for friendly societies- shepherds as models of care, foresters as models of mutual protection and assistance, and the Brotherhood seeks to combine these, so we use both in our name.
Why the Brotherhood now?
We have seen in recent years the failure of both capitalism and socialism to deliver on their promises to our people. Not only have these systems failed, the elites promoting them have shown their unrelenting hostility towards common Europeans everywhere. Beyond economic devastation and dependency, the elites have attacked common Europeans through destruction of our culture, false religion, promotion of sexual immorality, promotion of consumerism, and nihilistic entertainment, including athletics. To ask for redress of grievances from our rulers or response from the law, media or the so-called democratic political system is neither an immediate nor long-term solution to our problems.
Who are the Brotherhood?
The Brotherhood are ethnic Europeans. While marginal amounts of Native American or Asian ancestry are acceptable, all members must identify as European and with the European culture. We respect and use the practical aspects of other cultures but identify only with our own. The Brotherhood believes in freedom of conscience and pro-European Christians and practitioners of old European religions, not to include witchcraft, are accepted. No African ancestry is acceptable, nor the practice of non-European religions. No one of European ancestry part of, associated with or allied with the hostile elite, in any progressive political or religious organization may join or have any contact with the Brotherhood. This includes Puritans, Quakers, other progressive Christians, and members of progressive unions.
What does the Brotherhood do?
We come together to provide a positive community as an antidote to atomistic individualism. We help each other with opportunities to earn and produce. We help each other, and deserving Europeans in need who are not members. We avoid violence except in legal self-defense.
How are members of the Brotherhood expected to conduct themselves?
Members are expected to live and behave responsibly, for their own well-being as well as the well-being of their fellow members and fellow Europeans. They should live healthy lifestyles, avoid sexual immorality, consumerism, and nihilistic entertainment. They should obey the laws of the state and coming into formal and direct conflict with its power.
Why can’t Europeans who want to help others just go to churches or other charitable organizations?
Churches are essentially all progressive institutions. A person devastated by black crime going to a church will be told he must unconditionally forgive the black criminal and give money to the church, which will give it to blacks here or in Africa. The common European is to the progressive “Christian” church a “sinner” most certainly guilty of racism who must repent and commit himself to submitting to and helping blacks and other non-Europeans everywhere. The needs, physical and spiritual, of common Europeans go uncared for. Charitable organizations are largely the same.
Don’t many organizations for Europeans already exist?
Implicitly white institutions help elite whites and their allies. Explicitly white institutions are mostly ineffective or worse and built on outdated models. The progressive system creates a great deal of rage and despair, and these institutions provide a place for this to pool. Anger and hate are legitimate emotions but they need to be channeled effectively, and the best way to oppose the system is to help each other.
