The Lost Heroic Age: Part Five
by Rose Sybil
Rose Sybil details how we can set up alternative communities running independently of the prevailing anti-white globalist order.
The lost heroic age had no currency, merchant class, or middle management. Money is an abstraction that mediates our wants and needs, creating a distance greater than the physical. In this distance, our use is extracted, taking our life energy to put into the system -- making order out of the system by transferring the chaos to us. This is why Lycurgus minimized his currency circulation to slow the effect, but we are in a different form, requiring a different strategy. We cannot just demonize money or shift to a further abstraction of money like crypto as a solution. We must invert the use of money by utilizing the strategies employed against us from above and below to stop the transference. We can maximize the chaos in the system used against us to regain order.
Seidr is a form of magic that takes the life force of one being and transfers it into another entity, not just a form of divination. It can also be a driver towards a specific future utilizing the life force of another, which is precisely what has long been happening to the heroic spirit subsumed in trader civilization. This age is stuck in a negative feedback loop of this specific form of civilization utilizing seidr to extract the life force out of us, creating chaos in us to transfer into its order. You can remove any player in the elites, but they would be replaced and still fold along this same meta-zeitgeist. There is a fusion of wills where the archetypal madness has become their shadow will exerted on us all. This is why it is useful to gain control within the system and the mob-elite axis is only a temporary transition between folds of the meta-zeitgeist into the next zeitgeist.
From above, elites use corporations to extract subsidies, prevent double taxing, and funnel money into NGOs and offshore accounts. They also utilize our governing systems -- including but not limited to world and regional governing and economic zones -- to expand the third world into their globalizing system against us. Globalization increases mechanization and chaos of social systems, destroying our cultures. The Western and European tax bases are also used to fund foreign and domestic welfare systems and NGOs while increasing the cost of living and driving down wages for the same corporations. We need to pull our tax base from being used in this manner by grounding them back to the land because the system depends on making things more complicated and chaotic for Whites.
Catastrophes are meant to drive our best to compete for a place in smart cities, where they will be atomized and isolated from any strength of bonds or spiritual synergism and controlled by technological oversight and addictions.
Homesteading is used as an escape but furthers isolation from the strength of bonds, plus they still pay into the system. Orania stems from a healthy drive to build something new, but with a buying-in model that will never happen on time or on a mass scale. We would need a network of Oranias rapidly, but in many nations. It would not work with different laws of separation and taxation. It also does nothing to help pull people out who could not make the jump in time, even if they saw it in their interest to do so when strained under the current system. Those with families and jobs that uphold the system’s foundation, like skilled trades and STEM, are under the most economic strain and time constraints without community or much extended-family support. Orania is very hard to enter unless you have a specific skill they need or lots of money.
People do not need to be ideologically driven or in perfect sync to be a part of this strategy, nor do they need to know why. A new aristocracy must pave the way to pull out our foundations being used by globalism and ground them back into a living system. Taking up this responsibility earns and proves the new aristocracy while this time of external pressure will maximize ethnogenesis. The strategy is to utilize various types of non-profit organizations and grow them as rapidly as possible to pull resources away from the system and use tax-exempt status. Instead of amassing money or liquid assets, reinvest everything gained from donations, businesses, etc., into horizontal growth of fixed assets. Utilize tax loopholes to pull volunteer families into these nonprofit de facto sustainable communities without feeding the tax base to meet their needs while using welfare and Medicaid.
In this system that uses chaos against us to create order, the most vulnerable points are transitions. This next high to build the infrastructure needed for Agenda 2030 will be a time of opportunity. The system’s transitional chaos can be tipped over a controllable point. By refraining from being used by the system and instead using legal means to create order in ourselves, many people starting these projects can organically grow into new totalizing localities as the foundation of a new order. In this way, it is good that those upholding globalism are the most disenfranchised because they would be open to an alternative system. Many people just want natural communities, a meaningful life, real cultural identity, spirituality, and family again, so it will be easy to add more people continually driven by the lifestyle offered instead of ideologically or politically motivated.
Social chaos is used to order a globalist system that could survive most of our demise. Catastrophes are meant to drive our best to compete for a place in smart cities, where they will be atomized and isolated from any strength of bonds or spiritual synergism and controlled by technological oversight and addictions. Industrial farming using primitives and lower classes as migrant workers with the chaos of gangs and die-offs will be the field slaves used to drive competition towards a place as the house slaves in cities. A collapse will never come for the system, but it will make a sacrifice of those it does kill and be used to herd our best into inescapable slavery. Even if a total collapse could happen independently of globalist-directed catastrophes, if no organic bonds exist, much of our evolution will be forever lost.
Liberal anti-culture has an intense selective pressure to make Whites into beasts of burden for globalism.
Accelerationism only accelerates the loss of inclusive fitness -- the foundation of our apex status. This is shown in progressive regions, where most Whites bend to the worldview forced upon them. Hope for a political solution and accelerationism leading to a collapse of globalism is a losing false dichotomy. We need to regain living cultures that continue on the formation of meaning and stop feeding our lifeforce to this simulacrum. People need a solid foundation to resist the destruction of our cultures and future generations. Without our foundations, acceleration just changes what people consider normal or acceptable for the most part.
Most people will bend to the times, propaganda, and their upbringing, creating a cascading effect. With greater potential, there is a greater range of outcomes. People are quite malleable in formative years, especially since the system is designed to isolate while feeding imbalance and addiction. This is why culture is so important – it exerts an epigenetic and selective pressure. Liberal anti-culture has an intense selective pressure to make Whites into beasts of burden for globalism. Those who think they can sit back and everything will have a eugenic effect for their desired effort are making an excuse to do nothing and deluding themselves that it will work out. Apex evolution requires the will to exist and overcome; the framework of what made us apex holds the key to mankind’s willpower: inclusive fitness.
It is important to avoid drawing the system’s attention to these localizing projects. Many point to Ruby Ridge or Waco, etc. for an excuse not to build outside of the system, but they were religious fundamentalists who cut off normal contact. My strategy does not require us to live cut off from the system, only to invert the use of our taxpayer base from above and below to transfer more chaos back into the system while bringing bonds and order back to our people. Thousands of sustainable living communities nationwide are not targeted and have existed for the past century. Many people want an alternative to the current system, which can quickly grow by offering community and a less stressful and isolated way of life.
These projects should not be politically motivated, promoted to the masses, or fundamentalist in any manner. This will naturally discourage narcissists who want public attention more than putting in the effort to build, which has been a significant failing of recent political movements. Those drawn to nationalism for the public dramatics create a caricature used by the system to demonize our natural need for cultural synergism and autonomy, feeding right into the globalist image of Whites as antithetical to all other races. Adding in one family at a time, reinvesting money, and expanding by word of mouth allows for learning and adapting details as you grow without the negatives of attracting unwanted attention. We want many of our NGOs to start in various ways, growing organically and horizontally to avoid drawing political notice. Slowly increasing decentralized chaos in the system more than it can handle, very slowly then gaining momentum from all directions, like a lobster boiled over a hot flame in cool water.
Charitable non-profit organizations can gain tax-exempt status for different reasons, including providing a service to the community, environmentalism, education, arts, making alternative medicine accessible to the working class, STEM, community centers, and religious centers, etc. Only some of these must be rural or centered around regenerative agriculture or permaculture to prevent us from funding the system or being dependent on it to live. However, food stamps can be utilized to pull more people out of the rat race. There can also be a crossover between those and organizations in towns and cities. The non-profit status does not mean they do not earn money, but profits are reinvested into the business, perfect for horizontal growth with fixed assets.
These above 501(c3) organizations can be used in conjunction with 501(d) organizations in many ways. The 501(c3) organizations can accept tax-deductible donations, lowering the effective tax rate of members in an adjoined 501(d) organization. When a business gives non-monetary benefits to employees, the business cost decreases the potential taxable profits, and the employee still has to pay taxes on the market value of what they received. With non-profit charitable organizations, volunteers can receive food and lodging (with certain restrictions, which I will show in examples) without being liable for taxes on the value. Trading a few hours of volunteer work a week per family also lowers the cost of running the charitable organization and minimizes complexity. Charitable organizations are also able to fund education for volunteers without taxes. On the other end, people living and volunteering within these organizations can utilize Medicaid, food stamps in some cases so that not all food needs have to be covered immediately, and tax grants. Plus, many social, spiritual, and cultural activities can be fostered through charitable organizations that enrich the lives of those participating without cost, effectively localizing and bonding people at every level of daily life.
501(d) organizations offer many benefits to build alongside 501(c3) organizations. It effectively creates the means to house and grow an intentional community with far more flexibility than charities and religious places of worship. They can work in tandem with them to negate taxable income, generate funds, provide housing, and grow just like churches and monasteries. Monasteries are so wealthy because of the framework, flexibility, and tax advantages they are given by being 501(d) organizations. 501(d) organizations require that the people have a religious or spiritual common vision of how they want to live and live communally (this can be in many ways). They no longer require a vow of poverty, so all that members own privately before joining is still their personal property. They do not have to sell it or donate it to the group.
The 501(d) corporation pays no taxes but files taxes as a corporation so that each member claims the total profit as divided-up dividends, including children. Dividends are taxed much lower than self-employment and treated in most states as employed income. The organization can make charitable contributions to their partner NGOs to keep taxable income low but still utilize those funds to enrich the community. Trying to keep the dividend for each member as close to the standard deduction as possible is ideal. The company costs can also cover community cars, training, equipment, etc., and members can eat at parallel charitable organizations since that is part of what 501(c3) organizations can legally offer volunteers.
Part of the curse of mechanization of people is that it suffocates the soul’s need for meaning, connection, and authentic religion or spirituality.
A group of 100 people can earn $2M in one year after costs and donate $600k to their partner charity like a religious organization (Hof, temple, church), community center, regenerative agriculture, etc.. The donation lowers the taxable income to $1.4M, with dividends of $14,000 per member, almost the same as the standard deduction, making their taxable income nothing. Since these organizations will be families, 60% could be dependents like children or elderly who would not make income anyway. That would be 15-20 families living tax-free, dividing that profit to about $93k–$70k per family, respectively. Some of this goes to costs of living but very little since charities will cover many regular costs, allowing for rapid horizontal growth and increased quality of life for members. 501(d) organization benefits can work just as well for a couple of families and grow one at a time or help others in the same charitable organizations start their own.
We can be creative with many tactical variations to the same strategy, and it by no means needs to be a centralized effort. Many starting these on a small scale across the US and other White nations in the following years can have a cumulative, synergistic effect. Differentiation is a core aspect of anything alive; our diverse European backgrounds and spiritual cultures need variation for living cultures to exist. Variable applications of this strategy allows for local identity and difference while uniting in opposition to the same globalizing threat. Part of the curse of mechanization of people is that it suffocates the soul’s need for meaning, connection, and authentic religion or spirituality. We must not only invert our people’s financial use but also awaken our souls by building places of beauty, truth, and goodness. We need more than just places of use but also inspiration and connection distinct to differentiated European and Western cultures to combat the abominations of this age.
Until Agenda 2030 is complete, the US is being utilized as the lynchpin of globalism, so the more this can change here, it will have a domino effect for Europe and other parts of the White diaspora. Be creative in making these and growing them. Focus on something other than politics or what we are against but on creating what inspires the will to live and the strength of bonds. Focusing on what we can build (communities, families, localism, community places of worship and socializing) will attract people and grow as things worsen. Enough people are already spreading what is wrong or fighting political battles. We do not need to draw the system’s attention or get reactive attention. Here are some examples of how this can function and grow:
A family desires to start regenerative agriculture and moves out of the city. They sell their house and buy one in a cheaper rural area with land for much less. A family they are friends with is interested in joining them and splitting responsibilities to uphold the farm in exchange for room and board. This new family is also able to utilize food stamps and Medicaid. They start raising chickens and cows for dairy and meat. There is a sizable learning curve but they get the hang of farming. They start sharing homeschooling responsibilities and inviting locals from the nearby area for homeschool events. They take their kids to sell at farmers’ markets in cities in the region and utilize social media to generate customers for their farm goods.
They start a Christian homeschooling co-op. Other families in their homeschooling co-op are interested in farming and changing lifestyles. Two more families join and move to the founding family’s land, one with an RV and the other with a yurt. The main house has common space for them to use and they, too, get on Medicaid. The group expands their farming ventures, buying more livestock. They decide to start a 501(d) organization for tax purposes and to use profits to acquire more land. They qualify since they have a religious focus on how they want to live and live communally. The owner of the house and land still retains his property even if he is letting them use it. He decides to become a member and the costs of using the land go to any insurance, utilities, taxes, etc on the land paid by their corporation.
One of the fathers goes through a butchering class partially online to cut out butcher fees to sell their meat and offer butchering services to others. They buy and outfit a mobile butcher van that can be used to butcher remotely for customers and transport cold products to customers’ homes and farmers’ markets more easily. They can profit just over $300,000 that year, which divides up to about $14k per member for tax purposes. They owe nothing and can receive child tax credits since 13 of the 22 members are children, one is an elderly parent, and 8 are the parents. That is an extra $23k added to their treasury.
They find a school for sale in rural Kansas with a few acres of land and buy it for $220k, leaving them with $100k to invest in moving costs, making it ideally livable, and other expenses. They outfit the new place with a simple barn for their animals, and most of the land is gated with grass perfect for pasturing. There are 12 large classrooms with sinks, a huge gymnasium, a playground, four bathrooms throughout the school, a football field, a cafeteria, storage rooms, offices, an industrial kitchen, and a teachers’ lounge with a regular kitchen.
The cafeteria is used as the dining area for everyone when eating together, and part of it is made into homeschooling tables for kids. The gym will be used for their church services, offer more co-op classes, host local events to generate money and find more people, and rent out parties and birthdays to the public. The teachers’ lounge and regular kitchen will be used for the butcher’s headquarters, the van they used before will be used more for transporting meat, dairy, eggs, and produce to sell places. The offices will be outfitted to use for their business and personal use.
The 12 classrooms are made into apartments for the families. They open a second door for each to the outside and build a privacy fence with a lockable gate around it so that each apartment has a backyard and access outside without having to go through the halls. In this backyard, they put in solar showers and compost toilets in an outhouse so each family has their own bathroom. Later on in the year, they will add a small heated bathhouse to each suite by the winter once they bring in more revenue. Each class is around 1,000 sqft so they can add a few walls to make three separate bedrooms with an open living space that leads to the outdoor backyard and outside bathroom facilities.
They save money by utilizing the huge cafeteria kitchen so each apartment does not need a kitchen, but outfit them with mini-fridges and air fryers/convection ovens. They run HDMI cords to each room, allowing them internet and computer TV access. They use state grants to put up solar panels on their barn to eliminate the expense of electricity. Over the next year, they find eight more families that want to join, 12 in full, with newcomers given each an apartment. There are 24 parents, 3 elderly grandparents, and 47 children, totaling 74 members. They are able to greatly expand their farming and butchering business, training 3 more of the men to become butchers. The women and some men offer various homeschool classes and music lessons to the public, throw Halloween and Christmas events, rent out their hall for parties to locals, selling at farmers’ markets and to customers found online. They all split a few hours of daily farming duties, including children, then some get an hour or so of cleaning or cooking and other chores while others do specialty work from butchering to office work to selling at farmers’ markets so that everyone is contributing and has lots of free time.
They made about 1.5M that year and decided to start a community center as a 501(c3) organization nearby. They donated half a million of their profits as a charitable contribution to start it up. The owner of the original land they used sold his land and bought a small commercial building perfect for the community center outright with the profits. He rents it to the 501(c3) community center for the cost of utilities, insurance, and taxes. This way, he does not lose what he owned before and can contribute it to the organization without losing his equity. He is also not making any money off of it; it zeroes out with costs and will not affect his taxes. The remaining $1M the group made divided by all members equals about 14,000 in dividends which is about the standard deduction, thus no taxes. They take shifts at the community center and offer free memberships to local people who volunteer set shifts to work there.
They can reinvest this million into outfitting their apartments better, buying more farmland adjacent to it, equipping the gym/community center, starting another project like this by looking for another school to buy, and some moving there. They can also find other donors to help their community center grow, offering a very fun indoor gym childcare center their own kids get to use with indoor and outdoor playgrounds. There are limitless ways this can grow on that land and in that area or by adding in more areas. Furthering education and training can get them into other desired markets or to add in more classes at the community center. A 501(d) is highly versatile and offers more than workout classes at their new community center but also a second-hand clothes store in another building room.
A local heathen kindred of a few families connects up with other kindreds in the region in their state and nearby state. They acquire 501(c3) status as a religious organization, and everyone donates (tax deductible for all) to buy a church close to one of them with extra land. There is a house right by their Hof, and one of the families in the local kindred sells their house and buys it. The other families in their kindred move in, and they start a 501(d) organization to homestead. They built a greenhouse, a huge chicken coop, and a barn on the adjacent Hof land. The fathers of the five families continue to do their small business work. Reinvesting all profits into buying materials for the greenhouse, chicken coop, barn, and animals. After six months, they are on a good roll with producing more than enough milk, meat, eggs to sell and feed themselves.
They decide to put two of the mothers through online professional herbalist certification and start to grow medicinal plants and herbs for cooking. They market these products and herbalist health services online, at farmers’ markets, and to locals. They expand their livestock to include pigs and sheep, start learning to sheer the sheep, and make yarn to sell or fashion into products. Every member has set farm duties a couple of hours a day and then either homeschooling, selling, cooking, cleaning, chores or other arts and crafts a few hours a day. Dividing up work allows for everyone only to have about 4–5 hours a day of activities with lots of time off and not even the need to clean or cook during that time.
They throw regular festivals and meetups in their Hof. Other kindreds visit regularly and love the model, so they open a second Hof. The kindred that became a 501(d) organization make about $600k, so they donate $200k to their religious organization along with other kindreds, donating some to open the new Hof closer to another local. This leaves them with $400k to expand and buy more adjacent land with a house to utilize. Over the next year, they plan to use profits to build cabins around the home and new property to bring in more people and to donate to make more Hofs.
Over the next few years, every kindred has a Hof with their shared 501(c3) religious organization adjacent to locally owned 501(d) organizations similar to the one above with various businesses, ranging from regenerative agriculture, renting out the space for parties, throwing events, butchering, making yarn and textiles, midwifery, herbalism, skilled trades, building homes, etc., all of which they were able to pay for as a cost to the organization lowering their profits. They all are adding in more people, with each kindred’s 501(d) organization having about 80 members, all donating to keep that dividend close to 14,000, utilizing child tax credits and Medicaid or insurance tax credits for cheap group insurance. These donations pay for beautiful Hofs and land they can use, pay for banquets and regular events, travel between Hofs for members, and allow them to open an art exhibit at one of their main Hofs. They even have a few local kindreds in some of the areas with separate 501(d) organizations attached to the same Hof, and opening up local community center gyms.
A finance genius and real estate investor and his wife decide they want to start a 501(c3) organization to open a temple to Apollo alongside a beautiful event center. They donate personally, which is a tax break that will be apportioned over a few years, and they also buy a mixed-use building adjacent to it with a few business offices on the bottom and apartments on the top. A few local families are in the area and online that the father knows and are interested in the Apollo temple. He suggests that each family volunteers 5–10 hours between the temple and event center a week in exchange for being able to use the premises and get meals there, as he is the high priest and will hold events along with rent out the community center space to generate funds; especially for wedding venues they can offer both the ceremony and reception between the temple and the event center. In turn, they can rent the apartments above the shops at cost (utilities, insurance, electric) and be paid a portion of the cost of the event center when rented out to put out all of the furnishings and clean up afterward.
In return for each family volunteering a few hours a week, they can use the community center when it is not rented or there is no event for holding local homeschool classes or to host events and earn money that way. They can also start businesses in the downstairs offices at cost, as long as at least one of them is an aquaponics system with food donated to the temple. They volunteer to run for the religious organization and get to eat from it when at the temple most days. They start a 501(d) organization that the owner is not a part of, but for the families now members of the religious organization. In one of the offices, the mothers of young ones start a small daycare. They also start a workout studio in another that they trade off times running. Over time the religious organization draws in more people interested in this lifestyle.
By regaining organic roots, we will have a place to grow out from into a new order, not towards utopian ends in a stasis of anarchic forms.
In the first year, the 501(d) organization made $500k and donated $150k to the religious organization to keep their dividends at about the standard deduction for each member. This left the members earning $350k that year between five families of ten parents and 15 children. They decided to reinvest the money by buying a triplex nearby to add in three more families. They paid a few members to become herbalists, butchers, and midwives. The religious organization purchased land with its income that year and allowed it to be used for farming by its members to generate more revenue. Every year, more families wanted to join the 501(d) organization, and those original apartments were used as trial volunteer lodging so they were close to current businesses to help run them. They also bought land adjacent to the farmland and started to build cabins and community areas for a larger community. Once newer members put in their dues at the apartments for a year, a cottage on the land was built for them, and the apartment was freed up to allow new members to join.
Nicholas Gomez Davila once said, “The anarchy that threatens a degrading society is not its punishment, but its remedy.” Anarchy is not the goal of this strategy but a means of inverting the system on itself while rooting our people back into the ground. By regaining organic roots, we will have a place to grow out from into a new order, not towards utopian ends in a stasis of anarchic forms. There is never an ideal option, but this is viable compared to our other options. Those willing to put in the effort not just for themselves but to regain group cohesion and living systems, not just acquire knowledge, are the true aristocracy that will rise with authentic cultures budding locally again. Being able to destroy the system in this manner will allow the pressure to not reach past the tipping point of destroying us entirely but to shape something new. A controlled fall to gain the potential inflection point back into a heroic age is much better than the heights of a full collapse leading into much greater loss of life for our species than is eugenic, or full domestication into beasts of burden under technological globalist slavery.
Culture is the natural eugenic force of life growing into new forms, bonding us to a living chain of existence, and essential for our minds and souls to be in harmony. Culture is not just the superficialities of dress, speech, or customs. We cannot regain it by mimicking the past or simply studying high cultures. Cultures are continually growing and reborn in the primal formative processes of living with others and struggling to gain a future against the hardships of our times. It is from these localities not only that the current system and meta-zeitgeist will fall but that a heroic culture will rise. It must grow while connected to all aspects of the continuum of life we stand on, not just in a technological simulacrum or attempting a stasis of forms with superficial aspects of past cultures alone.
Legacy must continually be reconquered anew. The step of building must be completed, and the effort to do so is an important rite of passage into earning a future. We can find true meaning and connection only by regaining solid foundations that the budding of cultural identity can continue to grow. Reductive simulacra of existence can only be opposed by being an active force of creation. Cultural synergism can invert the transference of our life force into mechanized globalism, regaining inspiration to live that, in turn, fosters the spirit of self-sacrifice, animating all life. Any “savior” the political system gives is a product of it and bound to sacrifice for it. We must build a truly parallel system to allow our life giver to return in time for the inflection point that can go either way – trader globalist technological slavery eventually collapsing into a primordial state with loss of millions of years of evolution or a new heroic age. In the final article of this series, I will add to all I have have discussed of what was and currently is to what could be -- what a life giver could give life to.
