Generation Identity By Markus Willinger

generation_identity_front_1This book does not pull punches – it is a polemic. In fact it describes itself as a declaration of war “against the ’68ers”. Who are these ’68ers and why is a new generation so angry with them? It’s not a term we use a lot in Britain but on the Continent it is common currency. This generation is squarely blamed for the creation of an apolitical, self-destructive and atomised Europe. For us in Britain it means the soft, ‘right-on’ generation of some of our parents. Written in 41 easily digestible, short chapters this book is a call for youth rebellion against the values of that generation which shape our society today.

It’s a rebellion based on rejection. Rejection of a shallow multi-culturalism, of an economic system which has placed a generation in debt and of rootless consumerism and globalism. The rebellion asserts contrary values founded on tradition and heritage. It also emphasises mutual cultural respect and limits its ambitions to the European homeland. For ‘right wing’ Nationalists the sections dealing with the correct approach to foreign affairs, Islam and the Middle East conflict may be the most shocking as they indicate far more sensitivity and understanding than current manipulated opinion.

I don’t share the small ‘c’ conservative views of the author on abortion, relations between the sexes and sexuality but I recognise that others will see them as legitimate expressions of resistance to the current oppressive Zeitgeist. For me the sections dealing with these subjects were not as fully developed and thought out as others.

This is a passionate and inspiring book. It should provoke debate and discussion. The subjects it covers all point to the challenges we face as a culture. It should be a basic book for the education and development of any Nationalist. It stands as an accusation against the old generation and provides a voice for the new ‘Generation Identity’ that rejects their values.

If you want to understand the ‘Generation Identity’ movement which (naturally!) began in France and is spreading through Europe buy this book. If you want to understand the values that form the basis of the new youth rebellion buy this book.

For those who still uphold the tired old values of the ’68 generation it is both apposite and ironic to recall the words of Bob Dylan:

“Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.”
