I was inspired to write this commentary from a comrade in the Bay Area and a comrade who lives further south from me. One comrade highlighted a Wikipedia article that described the region I live in and one comrade gave me the impetus to write my own thoughts and projections so as to give the readers an idea of this region.
Wikipedia has a fantastic article in regards to the Inland Empire and and gives a lot of facts and figures that speak for themselves. My purpose is to give an account of my own experiences and what have been derived from them through personal contemplation.
I grew up for most of my life in this region and the whole region itself has various demarcation lines that bound and limit the different micro-regions within the greater framework. The first demarcation is between San Bernardino and Riverside counties; these are two separate political-territorial entities that govern the regions separately. The term Inland Empire is really more of a cultural-social term rather then a political one. Each of these counties have different cities within them but because of geographical diversity there is different regions that the cities are contained in. For example, in San Bernardino county there is the mountain region, high desert region, inland valley region, and a region that incorporates the city of San Bernardino as it’s center. All these different regions have unique, cultural-social manifestations that effect and determine the forces that operate within those regions. For example, in Rialto and San Bernardino there is a substantial population of African-Americans and where they congregate the area becomes molded and modified through the presence of those people in there. It works the same in other regions; in the mountains there tends to be a framework of small communities, mountain-style living, isolationism, and cultural norms derived from the European-descended people that live there. The unique situation that is the Inland Empire offers a unique approach to National Anarchist interests that seek to operate in the area. The diverse regions within the greater framework offer a ready-made palate to cultivate small, tribal communities. Regardless, the region is itself a decadent and degenerate region that only has semblances of lucid and ordered forces operating within there.
The social corruption is a product of many different factors operating within the region but the foremost factor is Modernity in it’s many different manifested forms. Capitalism, being one of these forms, operates through the participants and the participants themselves, knowingly or not, by replicating a lifestyle that is based on material gain, social advantage over others, consumerism, and anti-spiritual tendencies. This lifestyle is the engine of activity for the whole region and reaches even to communities in the mountains and more isolated areas. “High” culture or anything of that paradigm is virtually non-existent in the whole region save for small residues in the universities or small pockets lightly peppered throughout. Despite different ethnic groups operating in the area the mass of ethnic groups follow this lifestyle but with different motivations and purposes.
Purposes and motivations are vastly disparate throughout the region and the typical lifestyle manifested is aimed at different directions. Mexicans that immigrated to the region from Mexico are more privy towards familial and ethno-centric interests but from my experience, the immediate familial interests are more prioritized then the greater ethno-centric framework they are part of. Given the different varieties of Mexicans in the region there is a variety different of aims, purposes, and ideologies that operate within them so by witnessing this area you can see first hand the variety of the different types of Mexicans. The same can be said of different ethnic groups around the region with European descended peoples tending more towards individualism as a whole. There is few pockets of close knit-family interests and even fewer ethnic interests that make up the European peoples’ general ideology. They themselves feed the hardest into the consumer system even more so then all other groups though I will say that they can be reformed just like the others. By realizing their own identity and heritage the Whites here can learn to live in small, cooperative communities that can benefit the members and whomever they choose from the outside. This can be said of well for other ethnic groups.
Given the fluctuating and chaotic nature that typifies this region the clear cut antidote to this situation is establish small tribes and networks of like minded people in this area to give them a sense of Identity that will stabilize the forces in this region. There can not be an all encompassing federation under one rule in this region given the disparate elements that reside in the region. I can see alliances and compromises forming between the different networks and groups operating in this region based on ideological, philosophical, geographical, and cultural concerns that is similar to Renaissance Italy. This is not a situation that can be without strife but it’s a goal that can be done with enough vigor and energy. For those that are not affiliated with the IENA and are in this region I recommend clicking on any of the links to the side and searching through the solutions and understandings that will help bring this area away from degeneracy and into a more wholesome circumstance.

It’s been a while since I wrote on here and there is many reasons for not doing so but what it comes down to it is that I let myself get afflicted with an infection that is permeated around my area and to all the world. What is this infection? A spiritual disease that only instills vices and a mode of living that is not striving towards spiritual fulfillment. Though I read quite a bit compared to the average TV surfer I still don’t read nor contemplate enough like I should. Why do I mention this? Reading texts of writers that are worthy and contemplating their thoughts and philosophies instill a mode of living that strives to perfection and to carrying out an aim that seeks to bring people together in a collective mode that harmonizes with one another. Such is the Tribe; a collective mode that looks to each others members as part of the same communal family and they seek to fulfill duties and practices that is good for the whole. An individual perfects himself and others in this communal mode. A Tribe is the strongest center of any associated individuals and by growing out of itself it becomes stronger but at the same time it can fall into traps and pitfalls. In this pitiful Modern world a Tribe of people, just like an individual, can be corrupted and in turn desist from having any real power. Expanding has it’s hazards and it should be the aim of the Tribe to find due proportion and balance, something that is missing from most of this world. So in essence, without much further verbiage, by realizing yourself and protecting your mind from the Modern world you can in turn be empowered to guide others; by doing so they can help you and in turn help the whole. This is what I.E.NA seeks to do and what it seeks for all NA groups of the world to do.
As founder and leader of I.E.NA I am going to be posting some new information with an emphasis more on local issues but within a larger framework of anti-Modernism, National Anarchism, and ancient sources. I hope you find it refreshing and spread the word!
A few days ago, our sister organization BANA was attacked in San Francisco for showing support for a recent law that passed in Arizona. Check out the link for more details.

In this video a younger Black assailant is looking to act “tough” with an older White gentleman in which the latter simply went to the front to avoid confrontation. The Black assailant goes up to the front to try to confront the man, now known as “Epic Beard Man”, and in turn gets ass kicking. Now events and incidents like this can happen in ethnically homogeneous reasons but in this instant the circumstances were amplified given the differences in ethnic backgrounds between the White and Black actors. Also, if you listen on the background you can hear profanities being voiced by the woman holding the camera. This is a common occurrence in areas where Blacks, especially of a poorer kind, seek to establish territorial dominance in the area they inhabit by trying to create a hostile situation towards the opposition they are seeking to overcome. This could be taunts, body language, metaphysical points, physical aggression, and many other tactics and techniques. Also, at the end of the video you can see the camera lady picking up the bag of “Epic Beard Man” and thus showing another facet of her character.

This article, more then anything, exemplifies why multi-ethnic societies are not a viable option in the temporal world and that a clashing of world-views will lead to chaos.

I wanted to write this article because for one thing I haven’t been active on this blog as I should and also because I’ve been thinking about this particular subject for a long time, especially since I opted for a world-view that I currently hold. This is not scholarship, a thesis, or a standard theory that I am trying to create; rather, this is just a commentary that I hope to shed light on since it relates to the Modern World as a whole but also because it’s highly reflective of the area I live in. Writing in the form of a commentary allows more freedom of expression and intellectual activity but at the same time it lacks any objective credibility in the eyes of 3rd parties because it doesn’t appeal or point to outside reference points or 1st person sources. Though I don’t use any sort of references like this in the article I will say that my personal influences are Stoicism, Neoplatonism, Nouvelle Droite, Julius Evola, and other intellectual forces and those influences will manifest themselves in particular ways in this article. I do highly recommend you read about my influences and look no further then the links that are to the right in this blog. Without further ado, here are my reflections.
The beginnings of hostility
Hostility, in a general sense, can be a position, emotion, idea, and view that sets itself in opposition to another position, emotion, idea, and view. The opposition doesn’t necessarily have to be embodied in any entity (human, cat, horse, spider, etc.) but can be inherent within the oppositional view itself; for example:
View A: Abortion is wrong because you’re murdering a fetus that has a soul and has inherent worth.
Opposition to View A: Abortion is not wrong because a fetus is still a part of the woman and the woman should have a right to get rid of a “thing” in her body she doesn’t want. The soul is also “non-existent” and therefore does not have inherent worth.
This is just one of many examples of oppositional views that are inherent in the Cosmos and especially more narrowly in society itself. Every view that is upheld always has an oppositional view that is directly opposite of it. Hostility is the manifestation of that opposition at various levels of intensity and degree. For this example, I am going to use a measurement of this hostility in 3 levels that in a sense corresponds to real world degrees of manifestation but it not necessarily an absolute measurement but just a way to systematize it.
A and B disagree about view C; A is for C and B is against C.
Level 1 manifestation of hostility
A and B disagree about C but still communicate and correspond with one another and they never let C be a subject of discussion between them.
Level 2 manifestation of hostility
A and B disagree about C and in turn stay away from each other and cease all communication and correspondence.
Level 3 manifestation of hostility
A and B disagree about C and in turn look to overpower, submit, eliminate on another. In a sense go to war with one another.
This is the nature of the cosmos itself and this view has many forms and manifestations in the philosophies of the Orient and Occident, Lao Zhu and Heraclitus, respectively, mentions this in their respective philosophies. An opposite is already manifested in relation to every entity before existence itself is actualized. Another example:
A lion seeks to kill a gazelle and the gazelle seeks to prevent its elimination. The lion doesn’t rationalize or seek to systematize why he acts in this manner but it is inherent in his behavior. Hence, it is prior to its existence or else it could never come to manifestation.
Overcoming of hostility
An entity will seek to overcome hostility by a variety of means; by a dialectic process that involves both oppositional forces that in turn will create a 3rd force, a synthesis; an overpowering and submission of one force by another; a submission of one force to another; and the most fluid of them all, a unification of one force to another because of inherent unity between two forces. The 1st and 4th means to an overcoming is the process of culture, race, ethnicity, commonalities, and consubstantiality itself. The 2nd and 3rd means is a process of warfare and violence itself; this is the process that is manifested to a high degree in a capitalist society itself.
Capitalism and its manifestation
Capitalism is an economic system which derives from the Enlightenment and in turn informs and influences the participants that live within the system. The Enlightenment posited man as an abstract with inherent universal qualities as the starting point for its manifestation in the temporal world. The universal qualities it seek to impose on man from the start is that man is a self-interested creature that seeks its own good and is endowed with natural reason from the start. Culture and ethnicity to them are just “accidents” and do not have any importance in their conceptions and philosophy. Since Capitalism manifests itself all these presuppositions of man, the participants in Capitalism will manifest these qualities in turn. The Enlightenment is a falsity from the start because it creates a system out of abstraction and those manifestations that philosophers of the Enlightenment witnessed were ones that were infused by their own system. In fact English society, which a good portion of Enlightenment thought came from, manifested qualities that were pseudo-Capitalistic and Liberal which led to the universal abstraction of these values onto all humans and peoples around the world. The Anglo-Saxons themselves already lived in a culture of small government, individualism, and commerce that “laid the ground” for the Enlightenment itself. From this chain of causality Capitalism and Liberalism in its various manifestations came into fruition. Hence a “culture”, system, and environment was developed that reflected these qualities and in turn qualified the participants in a mode of operation that corresponds with the environment.
Manifestations of hostility within Capitalist Society
In a specific sense, this relates to American society but in a narrower sense, Southern California. The Enlightenment itself, when taken to a logical conclusion, manifests a society where culture, ethnicity, and in extreme forms, race, is seen as a non-factor and that individual gain and supremacy is the ultimate, albeit within a system of boundaries, laws, and other edicts that within themselves are Enlightenment based. Individuals are the real foundation of a capitalistic society and relationships are reduced to contracts, formal alliances, passing gestures, and superficial leanings. In this environment, individuals are “atomized” and the system is only structured by “universal” abstractions, a “culture” of individualism, and a market economy that participants have no choice but to participate in because it’s inherent within the system; alternative systems can be created but that will be for another article. The unifying principles that are not inherent within the system itself will be sought after through other channels: i.e. subcultures, common interests, race, ethnicity, culture, philosophy, etc. These principles will be held by various networks within the larger Capitalistic system and because the market economy itself is based on “competition” between various actors and groups, these differentiated groups and participants will be opposed to one another because of the amplification of “competition”, which is really just a euphemism for warfare. Here is a good example:
Participant A likes Death Metal and hates Rap.
Participant A finds a network of participants that share in his fondness for Death Metal and hatred of rap; this network is Group A.
Participant B likes Rap and hates Death Metal.
Participant B finds a network of participants that share in his fondness for Rap and hatred of Death Metal; this network is Group B.
Group A and Group B live in a town that is part of the Capitalistic system.
The town is not defined by any common, unifying principles (race, ethnicity, culture) that infuse the members of the town.
Group A and Group B are not unified by any principles they both share in.
Group A and Group B are hostile to one another based on the opposition that both groups carry.
In Capitalism, groups, participants, networks, and other entities live in different realities from one another which in turn ceases any unity between these social forces. These “realities” inform, nourish, influence, potentialize the actions and directions of these different social forces. These social forces, because they follow different world-views, can not share in the same reality with one another and because there is no underlying unifying principles between them their will be a level of hostility between them. Liberalism actually seeks to create a unifying system that prevents differentiated social forces to come at war within one another but because Liberalism is qualified by chaos within it’s principles, i.e. individualism, multiculturalism, market competition, distrust of ethnocentric doctrines, etc., chaos has no choice but to manifest itself within reality. Alienation between these two forces creates an environment that is, at different levels, chaotic. Another example:
Group A has a world-view where Concept A is a supreme principle.
Group B has no understanding of Concept A, which in turn is utterly alien to Group B.
Within this alienation of understanding, Group B has no choice but to have an interpretation of Concept A.
Within the interpretation, there is a hostility to Concept A that Group A sees as absurd in turn is opposed to that interpretation.
Since there is no unifying principles (race, ethnicity, culture, religion, philosophy) between these groups then there is opposition between them, which is a result of chaos within the Liberal system where abstractions take precedence over real unity.
This chaos is typical of the Modern World and in a narrower sense to Southern California and it shouldn’t be a surprise for the population why there is so much tension, angst, misrepresentations, misinterpretations, crime, conflict, hostility, and chaos itself in the region. Southern California, as a region, is not qualified by any transcendental principles which all members look towards; Christianity is manifested in different forms and denominations; Islam is making a presence in the region; a good portion of the population has no transcendental principles or philosophy that they hold onto; alienation is created between these groups, chaos in turn is the underlying principle of this region as a whole.
With many different races, ethnicities, and cultures inhabiting a specific region, all these unified groups are in many different manifestations going to be alien to one another. It can be seen in the tension and nervousness of differentiated participants when they exchange correspondence and communication; their world-views do not correspond to one another. Another example:
Participant A and participant B exchange a monetary transaction at a restaurant.
Participant A believes in world-view C and Participant B believes in world-view D.
C and D will be manifested through various actions and behavioral traits.
Participant A and participant B will interpret these manifestation differently because their world-views do not correspond to one another.
These interpretations will create a sense of confusion and misunderstanding between Participant A and B.
A synthesis can occur but because there is many disunities between the participants the synthesis itself will be interpreted differently by the participants. A unified interpretation of the Cosmos, with race, ethnicity, and culture as underlying factors, will mitigate and modify the conflicts that are manifested between participants because the degree of correspondences and manifestations will be able to unify with another and synthesize with one another. Greater degrees of unity and synthesization will be actualized as the commonalities are more in common between participants within any environment that is not marked by chaos but by order.
In this example I will use 4 manifestations of unity as measurements: Race, Ethnicity, Religion, and Taste.
Race will be A
thnicity will be B
Religion will be C
Taste will be D
Participants will be E and F
E and F share A,B,C,D=Unity is the greatest
E and F share A,B,C but not D=Unity is great
E and F share A and B but not C and D=Unity is less
E and F share A but not B,C, and D=Unity is lesser
E and F do not share A,B,C,D=Unity is non-existent
If E and F have no unity than synthesis will be non-existent because there is not a unifying system that both participants share and agree on and therefore make oppositional forces contained within an ordered, dialectical process.
The degrees of participation between entities in opposition and unity in the Cosmos is differentiated at greater and lesser levels. By bringing oppositional forces into a unified, integrated world-view with underlying principles that unite participants in the highest degree of manifestation this will allow creative energy, synthetic creations, and many more manifestations to be harnessed and nourished by the participants. By bringing participants into an environment where oppositional forces are given free rein and where chaos is the foundation for the environment then the participants will be in constant opposition through their actions with one another and synthesis and creative power is weakened and in some cases, non-existent.
Unity is something that is inherent and something that is sought for and realized through entities with one another. Hostility is the creation of alienation between forces that do not share a unifying principle. Capitalism itself is an environment, system, ideology that infuses hostility between participants because of the underlying principles that make the system itself. By living in an environment where hostility is manifested more abruptly and underlying order is lost then the environment itself manifests chaos and derision within many of the facets. This is the Modern World, this is what I am opposed to.
