Conscience and Honor
IDEALISM: The Chief of the Danish branch of the Nordic Resistance Movement, Jacob Vullum, writes about the concepts of honor and conscience, and relates them to White morality and social acceptance in the modern world.
by Jacob Vullum
WHAT IS HONOR, this old-fashioned concept, which, in the modern world, appears to have been replaced with the concept of conscience? Honor is an abstract concept that involves personal, individual character and a code of behavior relating to a people’s primordial values. Honor is a measure of the quality of a person, which in a natural Nordic man includes heroism, bravery, and trust. Honor should be at the core of who we are, and who we strive to become, and influence all our choices in life.
Conscience, on the other hand – the substitute for honor in the modern world – functions somewhat like honor, as it involves personal, individual character and a code of behavior, but in relation to social norms; i.e., the norms of the modern world, and not the original values of a people. The conscientious person is seen as a good person by the modern world, a useful member of society, when he acts completely without honor vis-à-vis a natural set of values.
The fact that people in the modern world can be swayed so far from their natural path by the (new) norms of society to such a degree that it can be considered brainwashing is evident every day. We see it when young people choose degeneration and destructive pleasure, and shun strength of character and self-improvement. We see it when bravery is exchanged for tolerance, when selfishness triumphs over the common good, and when “conscientious” individuals engage in race-mixing rather than keeping their blood pure.
If we look at the famous social experiment at Stanford University, where students’ behavior was observed after they were divided into groups of “prisoners” and “prison guards,” it becomes clear that people’s behavior is influenced by the social norms around them, if one is only led by his conscience. The conscientious “prison guards” treated their fellow student “prisoners” particularly badly because it had been made socially acceptable to do so. Conversely, honorable behavior rooted in a deeper, stronger morality – for our people, the original White values – is not shaken by changing circumstances or toxic influence.
If we imagine an experiment that is not limited to a university basement, but which is instead widespread throughout the West, we see an image of our modern world, in which, day by day, its norms and social acceptance pave the way for dishonorable lifestyles and totally destructive behavior. Race-mixing, LGBT ideology, drunkenness, substance abuse, cowardice, selfishness, laziness, and nihilism are presented as socially acceptable norms within this modern world for those who seek an easy road to a good conscience.
All people naturally seek honor, but many are content to act according to their polluted conscience, while invoking a lost “honor,” such the homosexual who speaks of honor (or “pride”) while vulgarly posing in a “gay” magazine, as if it were something for an instinctively healthy-minded person to emulate.
Is it honorable – or merely socially accepted – to make one’s living as a completely egotistic and self-glorifying shameless tramp on Instagram while invoking the wider social community? Beware of dishonor that dresses in honorable clothes.
Our concepts have been hijacked and our core value system has been under attack for more than 1,000 years, ever since Christianity occupied our countries and – as Alfred Rosenberg wrote in the 1920s – replaced our natural values of courage and pride with fear and humility.
We must all strive toward something higher than just being content with a good conscience. We must look beyond, to the future we want, and back to the morality that guided our ancestors. This morality must guide us in all aspects of life, so that both our conscience and honor emanate from this ancient, natural morality, which – if practised correctly – functions as the ultimate source of rules and laws in this decadent modern world.
Our people are not only quickly being outnumbered by mass immigration; authentic and instinctive idealism is equally in danger of drowning in the anti-culture and anti-morality of today. Our countries will not be liberated from racial foreigners tomorrow, and the anti-White agenda will not disappear in an instant, but you can start your self-improvement today – and it is needed.
Return to your true self as an authentic European. Immerse yourself in the values mentioned above, practise and work on them, spread them and defend them.
