I have some great news to report: two babies were just born within the ranks of the League of the South, a boy and a girl, to two different young couples within the past 24 hours.
This is what I enjoy the most about the Southern Nationalist movement. It is based in the real world, not on the internet. Because we have gone out of our way to make ourselves visible, young couples are joining our ranks all the time. Babies are being born left and right now. My own son will grow up in a large peer group.
In recent weeks, I have seen two of our friends get engaged. I have seen other single friends find mates through the movement. While some people on the internet dismiss the importance of conferences, protests, and rallies, these events have been very useful in building up our community. We’re building a network in the South that really has no parallel on the “Far Right” in other regions of the United States.
I bring this up because we are all familiar with the alternative: anonymous people who are only linked vertically through the internet, who are completely isolated from each other, and who are united only by very thin bonds of shared grievances and abstract ideas and who seem to spend too much of their time fighting with each other. Perhaps once a year they will gather at Amren in an academic lecture format setting.
It’s a striking contrast: I think back to all the WN debates on the internet both here and elsewhere about how terrible women are these days, how The Daily Stormer went full MGTOW in April, and I look around and see all my friends having children. While we share the same ideas, we also get to watch each other go through important milestones in life. I think that anchor makes us much stronger and more committed to our cause.
Anyway, I just thought I would share the good news. It’s a sign of how we are changing and where we are going.
