Having interestingly read an article called “Good Night, Left Side”, which fully reflects my thoughts, I would like to focus more on our ideological differences with the Right Wing, because it really is one of my favorite subjects.
I used to believe, and I still do, that a high and solid ideological wall should divide us from the right-wingers and it’s Far-Right derivatives. Our differences with the so-called Right-wingers are less obvious to the People and our comrades, than those with the left-wingers, and this is the reason why this challenge is a big one. I hope my effort to find and point out these gigantic differences, which are often hidden in small details, will receive sharp criticism and comments by my comrades.
Firstly, we must examine the matter of the free market competition between people, products and nations from our point of view and compare it with that of the Right Wing. The right-wingers, either populists or liberals, have distorted the Darwinian logic of improvement of the species by antagonism, by relocating Darwinism to the field of economic competition.
First of all, biological reductionism (namely coming to social-economic conclusions based on the theory of evolution) does not stand for itself as a science, but only as a philosophy, and even though I am myself a hard-core "biologist".
Secondly, the modern theories of evolution (Richard Dawkins for instance in “Selfish Gene”) support that the biological choice matters not for individuals but for groups of people with a common genetic “pool”(namely, they share a great number of common genes) and that for humans means that the interest of the individual is sacrificed for the interest of the nation, so that the genetic pool will be supported! Therefore, the competition between individuals does not exist on many neo-darwinian theories.
Thirdly and most importantly, market competition has nothing to do with Darwinism, simply because fortune and capacity can be inherited in the capitalist system! Animals compete each other, but according to Darwinism, this happens with everyone starting at the same conditions and nature is the one to decide for the survival of the most qualified. In the capitalist system, as we are all aware of, only the offsprings of the rich and powerful, those who have the contacts, the money and the connections will be in power and that is in no means a biological choice. Also, the so-called social mobility, people from the lower castes reaching the higher ones, exists mostly due to contacts made by those those who kiss asses and crawl through lobbies and bedrooms to approach the rulling class of capitalists. No reasonable human being considers this as a biological choice!
Fourthly, and very important as well, is the fact that even if in capitalism the high ranks weren't the aftereffect of corruption and fortune, it would again promote sub-human beings! Who would survive in the free market? The brave, the strong, the bright scientist? He who keeps a harmony between the bodily, ethical and spiritual virtues? Of course not! This would really institute a biological choice. The one who survives will be the one who knows how to buy everything for a low price and sell it expensively using any means necessary .
Therefore, such social hierarchy which is accepted by the right wing cannot be perpetuated, comrades.

Besides, a society which is bound with blood ties and ideas is an almighty adversary against the capitalist consuming mass. We do not create societies of worn-out people resting on top of one another, like the leftists do, but hoplite columns in which every individual has his usefulness. It’s not the position that gives him prestige and respect, but how vigorously it is served by every hoplite-citizen!
We all are workers of the spirit and of the body, all labor is equal and the moral recompensation by the society, when we do our work correctly and unselfishly, is that which is going to make us productive and will power our internal impulse to create, an impulse existing in every human, and not the ill impulse to accumulate wealth.
Blood, Honor, Hellas
We know that between competitive nations, they are usually protected with military means and there is always the probability of war. The Right Wing uses minimum wage employees as soldiers, to protect the investments and the profits of the capital itself (domestic and multinational) deriving from the exploitation of the soil and the geographical-geopolitical-geostrategic position of the country! This is not about our national interests, but about the benefits of several families that have wealth and power. The Right Wing, when talking about national interest, it implies the interests of this oligarchy which it serves!
When we, the Social Nationalists, use the term “national interest”, we mean that the profits from the exploitation of the natural wealth will be distributed among all the Greek people through state enterprises, and the Greeks will be those who will protect them with their own blood! No soldier will be left in the service of the capital, as the Right Wing wants them to do.
Finally, we must refer to the so-called “free economy” which the Right Wing supports so strongly.
The “free economy” is neither a free one, nor it’s propagandized “freedom of the consumer” exists at all. A “free economy” means nothing but an economic jungle, where whoever owns a big capital (to advertise and lower the prices) and presumes upon their employees, becomes dominant, prevails and buys off all everyone else, resulting all the market to get under the control of a small number of multinational companies which control not only the market, but finally the state itself, even its very elementary functions!
Even if they bribe politicians or the Army of the dictatorships they install, they gain such great economic power within the state itself, that it’s impossible to be controlled, even by a decent government, if their economic size is not limited.
Truly, whoever supports “free economy” is like supporting the abolition of the Police and the Law in a country, resulting us killing each other until the dominance of the strongest caste is achieved. It really is about a deep anti-social conception which converges with the hatred against all state structures that anti-authoritarians and mobsters exhibit.
We propose state control (and not ownership) in all sections and state ownership via public bodies and enterprises in strategic sectors, as are education, healthcare, the army, energy, transportation, telecoms, the war industry, etc. Of course, our state will not be the ill and clientelistic parliamentary state...
Comrades, I hope that this small introduction in our huge cosmic differences with the bourgeois Right Wing will become a rock on the ideological wall we have to build and raise against it.
