From Ireland

Vdare recently posted an excellent article from Ireland’s recently-formed National Party.

The party’s site is great – definitely worth the binge-reading I gave it this morning.  However, it isn’t just that it says all the right things.  What’s even more gratifying is that the organization  appears to be a real thing – or at least more than just a couple of guys with a grand-sounding name and a web site.

Here are a few samples of what the National Party has to say:

We contend that the first duty of an Irish government is to an Irish people and that this duty can only be served by the National Idea. Ireland cannot simply be a transport hub for a global citizenry. It must be rooted, coherent and authentic to itself.About

And:

The organising unit of society must be a social unit. And that social unit must be as organic and cohesive as possible. The family, the parish, the nation. It is a social communitarian ethos which is the organising basis of everything human-beings create. – #WeAreIrish – Twitter Hashtag Reveals the Contradictions in How Liberals View Ethnicity

And:

… to a liberal and a globalist, nationalism is always something lurking in the shadows. It is a kind of Other. A kind of Id. Something monstrous and irrational which constantly threatens to plunge an ordered society into chaos. It is associated with darkness and danger. Nationalism, one might say, is the foreign element in a globalist society. What does globalism exclude if not nationalism?Is Irish Nationalism Dead like Dan O’Brien Says?
