Healthy communities in rural Australia

Mark Wilson writes about his experience of country living for nationalists.

I wrote an earlier article on this subject whilst living in Sydney and at the time had never lived in a rural community. In effect, this is Part Two of that article. [The article, “Healthy Mind: Healthy Body” by Mark Wilson is available on the internet.]

Since then I have moved to rural Victoria and now live on a small farm with my wife and three children, and we’ve been here two and half years now. We grow our own fruit and vegetables – all organic. We have our own chickens for eggs and we raise pigs, lambs and turkeys to eat.

We have rain water tanks for our water needs, we have solar hot water and wood fired heating. My children go to the local school of sixty children, all Aussies. I work part-time off the farm and, coming from the city, I was amazed at how much work there is in rural Victoria of every description.

Now if that all sounds idyllic, it is – but it’s hard work, growing your own food and raising animals and maintaining fences, pumps, solar systems, cutting wood, removing weeds (by hand no chemicals), etc., is very time-consuming, although very rewarding.

Before I moved here, I – like many other urban nationalists who had never lived in the bush – assumed that what was needed was for people like myself to move to rural areas around the country and start self-sufficient communities of Aussies, who would supply goods and services to each other and trade on a barter system, and generally live a sustainable lifestyle, with as much political freedom as possible, and with nationalist political representation at the local level.

Well, I can tell you that I was pleasantly surprised to find that, apart from nationalist political representation at the local level, everything else already exists. As far as politics goes, the vast majority of country people are pro-nationalist, very patriotic and not in favour of Asianisation; however, for most of them, nor is it a big issue – because in most country areas they don’t have large populations of Asians and Africans (and the resulting racial problems) that the big cities have.

There really is no need for any purist ideological planning to set up purist [pro-nationalist self-sufficient] communities in country areas. The real deal is already there. All that needs be done is for political activism to be undertaken in rural areas to convince the locals to get actively involved in saving their way of life. What is needed is for them to be made aware of the dangers that will be coming their way.

We don’t need to impose anything on them, nor set up any cult-style purist ghetto in the bush that the locals would just regard as city slicker elitists who have no idea of what they were doing. For those interested in living a country way of life, we just need to join in with the country folk in general.

Just for the record: I’m not suggesting abandoning the cities and everyone fleeing to the bush. What I’m saying is – if you’re thinking of leaving the city for a better life for you and your family in a pro-nationalist setting, then you don’t have to set up a whole community to do so.

The rural Australian community is already there, you just have to go and join them, get active in the local politics, and then you can live the dream and make that dream a reality.
