How Fabian Tactics bring low the enemies of the West
Let me set the stage: The year is 218 B.C, the location Italy.
Rome, having come off of her first war with the great city of Carthage, sat fat and happy with her simple conquests, working to consolidate Italy and Sicily into their fold. Meanwhile, their (yet unknown) great enemy Hannibal, the son of a disgraced Carthaginian general and the swearer of a blood oath of eternal enmity to Rome, consolidated his own power in Spain. Even now, the soon to be known “Great and Terrible” marched his way along the coast, a move culminating in one of the most
ambitious actions in military history: To cross the Alps just as the Winter snows began, and bring the war directly into the Roman heartland.
In such a time of crisis, the Romans turned to the one man whose tactics had, for a time, proven successful against Hannibal. Quintus Fabius, twice Consul and once Dictator of the Republic, was again called to serve as the supreme authority of the City, and he brought with him the strategem he had utilized after the defeat at Trasimene and which had, to the Roman's folly, been abandoned in favor of Cannae. They are now known to history as Fabian Tactics – The exquisite art of denying battle.
Where other Romans saw Hannibal's intrusion on their homeland as such an affront that it had to be met with anger and immediate military action, Fabius saw Hannibal's army for what it was: a large, vicious animal that was very much out of its own territory and desperate for supplies and a path to victory. Knowing that Hannibal was banking on decisive victories to erode the Roman will and dependent on fickle Roman allies for provisions, Fabius shifted the focus of the war: keep an army in the field, shadow Hannibal's forces, and harry their fragile supply chain at every opportunity. This led to the eventual collapse of the Carthaginian strategy, as Hannibal's efforts to win over the native cities were thwarted by a tailing Roman army which would flip back any major town which Hannibal strong-armed into surrender. Just as important: pinning Hannibal down allowed the Romans to expand their horizons past the Italian peninsula back to abandoned theaters: 2 major expeditions to Spain, both led by members of the Scipio family, would see Hannibal's personal fiefdom collapse. This culminated in the Mediterranean stronghold of Cartago Nova being razed and the entire city's population slaughtered. While this is a whole article on its own, this action would see Scipio Africanus - the rockstar counterculture icon of his day – finally gain the fame he needed to launch a counter invasion of North Africa, spelling the doom of Hannibal as Carthage finally called for his retreat from Italy.
While Scipio gets the glory of winning the war, beside his shining star stands the stony, resolute figure of Fabius. Stoic Fabius, who guided Rome with restraint and a keen eye for the realities of warfare. What can he teach us?
No one in our movement has to be told about the problem that is Antifa. They storm our events, they attack our Normie auxiliaries, and they get these auxiliaries arrested for the act of defending themselves and others. Our reaction is visceral disgust; we can't stand the idea that this actual human garbage is allowed to act completely without consequences. Our immediate reflex is to strike back, to draw our cudgels and knives and meet them head on, blood for blood.
But we have to see the world as it is: Antifa is NOT a grassroots movement. Like BLM, it is supported by Globalist financial interests and propped up by a complicit media. It is not a movement that can exist under its own power, and it has no inertia to spread itself without exorbitant sums being pumped into it along with deliberate efforts by bureaucrats to let them act unimpeded. They are the darling of the old status quo, the beloved of the entrenched classes. If you try their tactics against them, you aren't going to win, for the simple fact that the deck is stacked against you. You will have the full force of the State come down on you as soon as you start to win. What would you even be winning? We aren't in Greece or Italy, we aren't in Egypt or the Middle East. Street violence doesn't cause a political shift in a country as (relatively) stable as our own. What does winning the streets due to advance the ideology of our movement?
Here, we must return to Fabius: delay the enemy on their preferred front in order to advance the cause where we can secure lasting victory. We can't abandon the streets entirely: signaling our dominance in meatspace is too valuable a PR tool to completely cede to the enemy. But it can't be our focus. Our real enemies are in academia, in the crumbling cable news studios, in the halls of power and the smoke-filled rooms inhabited by the real force behind American Hegemony. These are the foes who, wary of our acknowledgment of them, have done everything to paint our pseudo-Manchurian Candidate as an active enemy of the People, to paint the true inheritors of this country as a decadent, ill-educated pack of racists. They are the foes we beat every time we turn to AltRight.com, or TRS, or The Daily Stormer for the real facts rather than just let ourselves be spoonfed by aged hippies in the classroom and CIA shills in the newsroom. When Dicky Spencer gets interviewed and holds events, so much so that his name is becoming immediately recognized, we are twisting the knife even deeper into the apparatus that has sought to deprive us of our birthright.
THESE are the enemy, not the unemployed balaclavas who serve as their unwitting stooges and pepper spray our people. But it is Antifa that they want us to fight, to have our vital energy sapped on a battlefield of their choosing. The Antifa have written treatises on street warfare, and they use classical era infantry tactics to accomplish well-coordinated operations. They're prepared to engage us on their battlefield, and we're not organized for it. But they can't adapt, they can't abandon their two-dimensional view of the battlefield. We aren't locked in like they are. We can easily begin our march into the institutions of education, entertainment, and power without even having to come within 12 blocks of an Antifa rally.
In order to fight smart, we have to be willing to know when to deny battle, not just wage it. If we allow ourselves to enter into the pass of Trasimene, and let these dollar-store Hannibals isolate and assault us, then all we'll do is appear inept and unable to defend what is rightfully ours. If we can engage their real masters, however, we can win the war before they have the clarity to look up and see the broader picture. They'll be left to do the only thing they can: weep in their mother's basement, screech autistically, and eventually conform to the new order that we will construct on the ashes of the Globalist pyre.
Let Fabius be your guide. Fight Smart, remember that our objective is too important for us to bullrush.
