Back in the 1980's someone, ostensibly some Jew, was selling bumper stickers that read “The man who dies with the most toys wins.” This statement seems to be one of the more popular new-age mantras of Western materialism. The luxury sedan, the second SUV, the third Xbox, the large flat-screen television in every room, the abundance of what the merchants call consumer goods: today the stock-piling of all of these things far beyond necessity gives the individual a false sense of value, and keeps oiled the gears of the artificially constructed global economy. With this, the international Jewish bankers are happy, although they are never satiated.
Once upon a time economies were centered around the extended family, or tribe. A man's sense of self-worth came from what he could contribute to his tribe, which was his community. By making extraordinary contributions to his community, a man advanced his own status and value. In time of need all men were builders, soldiers, hunters, herders or farmers. When a man did well, the community benefited, and when the community thrived the man did well. The community could not exist without a collection of noble men, and the man could not survive without the protection of the community. If left to himself, he may well starve to death, or be robbed and enslaved, or even destroyed by outsiders from other tribal communities. The man served the interests of the community, and the shelter provided by the community protected the man. The community was governed by the tribal elders, the patriarchy, and those who were most capable among them. This was all a part of the natural order recognized by our fathers – and our mothers - as they wandered the Eurasian steppe and the forests of the north.
As those tribes began to grow and prosper, the tasks of men became specialized. While in necessity every man remained a soldier, only some men were builders, others herders, yet other farmers. But the patriarchal family and tribe remained the primary components with which Western civilization was formed. Thus was the case in Rome and Athens as well as in Hamburg and London. Pride in one's heritage meant pride in the deeds of one's fathers, those men whose sacrifices benefited their communities so that those communities could build the great cities, principalities and nations which the tribal units had eventually become. That pride is true patriotism, an idea which cannot be authentically separated from patriarchy. Two men cannot be patriotic together, if they do not have common patriarchs.
