The subject of dueling and the National Honor Court in the Northwest American Republic's Constitution recently came up in one of our discussion groups. I know it seems a bit odd to some people, anachronistic and out of place in today's world. But there is a distinct reasoning behind it.
It is generally thought that the Mafia code of omerta means simply not speaking to the police about assorted criminal acts, but it is much deeper and more nuanced than that. In the best translation, omerta means "manliness," to live a life of honor and personal integrity.
"Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both. It is as cowardly to betray an offender to justice, even though his offences be against yourself, as it is not to avenge an injury by violence. It is dastardly and contemptible in a wounded man to betray the name of his assailant, because if he recovers, he must naturally expect to take vengeance himself."
We've got some idiots in the Movement who have problems with Italians. I don't. I think maybe we need to take a lesson from them in some things. Okay, granted, criminals may not be the best examples of what I'm talking about here, but in the underworld of the Cosa Nostra there is a kind of personal responsibility for one's actions which is lacking throughout American society as a whole.
People in America aren't afraid to be assholes and to screw other people over, because there is seldom any real penalty attached to simply being an asshole. In fact, the capitalist system encourages it, and consistently rewards assholes with positions of petty power, to keep order among the masses and also to act as a focal point for White resentment, turning that resentment away from the soulless men in business suits who actually run this society.
The result is a kind of social dysgenic breeding; decent and honorable behavior among White people has become almost extinct, because it's so much easier, so much more socially acceptable, and so much more fun to be a degenerate and a jackass and to push other people around without consequences while hiding behind the protection of the Jews' law.
In a healthy society there needs to be some penalty for being an asshole, and it needs to be unpleasant enough to act as a deterrent to assholic behavior. It also needs to be swift, and needs to be administered in the first person, by the offending party, not by some third-party process that can be bought off, diverted, corrupted, stalled, or confused and manipulated so the asshole gets away with it or even uses the law to further his assholic behavior. A young white man needs to grow up in a world where he understands that he is personally responsible for his actions and responsible for his own honor and integrity, and nobody is going to come riding over the hill and bail him out of problems for free.
My favorite comment on this is a line that comes from a John Wayne movie (where else?):
"You set a code of laws to live by: I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I demand the same from them."
Hence the legal dueling provisions in the Northwest Constitution.
