The following 'culturist' policy formulation by John K. Press echoes much of Liberty GB's political manifesto.
Culturism (cÇ”l-chÉ™r-Çz-É™m) n. The philosophy, art, and science that values, promotes and protects majority cultures.
Culturist (cÇ”l-chÉ™r-Çst) n. 1. An advocate of culturism. 2. One who engages in the arts or sciences of managing and protecting majority cultures. 3. Adj. Of or pertaining to culturism, culturists or culturist policy.
Culturist assimilation policy in a nutshell:
Whereas multiculturalism emphasizes diversity, and drives us apart, culturism emphasizes our unity. Whereas multiculturalism says the West has no core cultures into which to assimilate, culturism affirms that western nations have wonderful core traditional cultures to protect and promote. Culturism asks immigrants to assimilate. Â
Latin American and Islamic immigration to the West must stop now. For both groups, this forces a choice: here or there? Additionally, if foreign peoples are the majority in an area, they will not assimilate to the wider country. We must not grow already large immigrant communities.Â Â
A later article will detail repatriation policy. Suffice it here to say that, in America, displays of 'fealty to foreign potentates' provide evidence that you perjured yourself during your naturalization proceedings: your adopted citizenship contract is thus null and void.
Criminalize sharia law in the West:
Culturism affirms that the West has a core culture. Sharia is not western. Refusing to show your face during government proceedings and advocating public schools become halal, shows fealty to non-western ideals. As such (where legally possible), those advocating sharia law should have their citizenship revoked.
No dual citizenship:
Rather than convenience for individuals, ending dual citizenship is designed to create unity behind our Western nations and values. It forces a choice of loyalties.
Western schools must teach that the West and western nations are the best. Multiculturalism says all cultures are equally wonderful; this undermines schools' ability to inculcate pride in western values and achievements. We need culturist education.
Local governments should celebrate western history and holidays. While not requiring attendance, these celebrations provide an opportunity for new citizens to show public enthusiasm for their adopted nations.
Conversely, our local and national governments and schools should not fund celebrations of other nations or their cultures. Multiculturalists believe that Ramadan is just as western as Christmas.Â Culturists disagree. Our governments must not promote foreign cultures.
Flags and anthems:
Fly a flag in front of your house, in banks and government offices. Let's have the anthem before films. Stand when it plays. Let's play our national anthems on television and radio. Those who don't want to stand should feel uncomfortable.
Government transactions must only take happen in the traditional majority language of your nation. Language is a primary source of unity. Not providing services in foreign languages forces new citizens to learn the national language: this is an essential part of being a citizen.
Furthermore, conducting government work in foreign languages creates enclaves where only foreigners may be hired. This creates foreign dominated communities, which leads to enclaves where only foreigners can be elected. In democracies, such enclaves make passing immigration laws difficult, which undermines national sovereignty.
Limited travel to foreign nations:
Returning to 'your country' should be made difficult. This goal will work in tandem with ending dual citizenship to force new citizens to decide if they really want to adopt the receiving western nation as their new homeland.
Immigrants must know that family reunification can happen by their returning to their country of origin; citizenship does not mean their family can come into ours. And, adopting a new homeland necessarily entails familial and cultural rupture: forewarned, the immigrant has the burden of choice.
No foreign mosque funding:
In America, existing law allows us to trace and stop foreign enemy funds from entering our nation during wartime. Investment is welcome. But, foreign mosque building is not investment; it is culturist aggression. Foreign-funded mega-mosques discourage assimilation into western Christian culture and must be stopped.
Rights advocates must know that this policy does not prohibit local citizens from building mosques and engaging in their chosen religion. Also, note that China, Iran, and other nations have culturist laws. Our Constitution is not a suicide pact; we can legally define and protect our traditional majority culture. Our constitutions are ours: they do not provide foreign nations rights in our nations.
Those in the U.S. annually send more money in remittances to other nations than the combined debt of several of our major states. Doing this while our nation is in debt shows poor citizenship. If you are here to send money back to your country, you need to return to your country. Â
Reinstate real citizenship oaths:
Finally, citizenship is a matter of the heart, not paperwork. If you refuse to consider advocating laws that prioritize your new nation's safety over your convenience and your group's self-interest, you are not a citizen in the truest sense of the word.
Therefore, we must affirm the importance and legal standing of loyalty oaths for those seeking to become new citizens. We must prosecute and expel those who perjured themselves during their naturalization process.
Citizenship means supporting the nation's traditional majority culture. People of varied backgrounds can celebrate the greatness of the West and western nations.
But this will only happen if we replace multicultural philosophy and policies with the culturist philosophy and the culturist assimilation policies enumerated herein.
