Let us say clearly, at the outset, who we are, for what we fight, and in whose name. Let us say what the enemy is, and why he says he fights, and then say why he truly fights.
Who are we?
We are those who accept the fundamental first principles of Western Civilization.
For what do we fight? There are nine points of belief that form the foundations of civilization which are currently being subverted and undermined. To restore and rectify these we take up the cross.
We believe, first, in the majesty of truth; the impartiality of reason; the objectivity of reality. We believe in the authority of virtue; the verity of beauty; the dignity of man; the equality of the law; and the duty of the patriots, as free men, to uphold that law. And we believe in revealed truths too sacred for any law to approach or touch.
Because human dignity belongs to Man by nature, not by grant of law, hence natural also are his sacred rights to life, liberty, and the possession of the fruits of his labor. Sacred also are his duties, oaths, and covenants. We believe it is the sacred duty to enact among men just and equal laws to protect those rights and enforce those duties.
A manmade law purporting to alienate man from his natural rights merely loses its own authority as law.
Hence it is the duty of patriots to love their homes and nations and defend those laws. However, there are things more sacred than law which the law may not overbear, including the sacred duty to love, adore, and serve the Creator whose hand makes all the blessings men know, and man.
In other words, put more simply, we hold that truth is true, reason is reasonable, reality is real, goodness is good, beauty is beautiful, and that man is man. Sacred therefore are the laws that uphold, the flag that protects, and the cross that endows man with life and liberty.
