"When all beneath Heaven abides in the Way, common people need not discuss politics."
The common people don't talk about politics unless and until they hurt. That is basically what the BNP are about. They only do it for themselves, which is why the calibre of its members is so low.
A prominent nationalist admitted that he did not see the point of having principles. Another could define it but appears incapable of acting according to it.
To them, a principle is something you claim to have until it starts to hurt, whereupon you give it up pronto.
"If things far away don't concern you, you'll soon mourn things close at hand."
An example that comes to mind is the deliberate suppression and marginalisation of white people who complained about immigration because it was thought they deserved it, especially if they lived in the constituencies of the likes of Enoch Powell. You had to be poor and stupid to live in an area swamped by immigration, therefore you deserved all you were getting. If you complained you would be called an evil extremist Nazi racist, for this was how the white liberal middle classes would treat the white working classes - whom they despised for being part of the great unwashed - when they complained. And now, when the middle classes notice to their horror that they now have mosques in Oxford and Sandhurst, it is too late.
"Don't rush things, and don't think about small gains. If you rush around, your efforts will lead you nowhere. If you worry about small gains, your great endeavours will go unrealised."
This must be Confucius referring to the fucking bloody useless Eurosceptic parties of Britain.
"Worthy admonitions cannot fail to inspire us, but what matters is changing ourselves. Reverent advice cannot fail to encourage us, but what matters is acting on it. Encouraged without acting, inspired without changing - there's nothing to be done for such people."
"To be wrong without trying to change, that is called *wrong* indeed."
"Wild and yet dishonest, base and yet insincere, simple-hearted and yet untrustworthy - I'll never understand such people."
"Showing no deference or respect when young, accomplishing nothing worth handing when grown, and refusing to die when old - such people are nothing but pests."
This is of course Confucius referring to the treachery, cowardice and intractability of the illegitimate, depraved and degenerate British.
"If you can revive the ancient and use it to understand the modern, then you're worthy to be a teacher."
"The noble-minded are all-encompassing, not stuck in doctrines. Little people are stuck in doctrines."
This probably describes me.
"Mistakes of the noble-minded are like eclipses of the sun and moon: they make a mistake, and it's there for everyone to see; they make it right, and everyone looks up in awe."
This is what I hope to be when I am Dictator.
