Kossaat is not a micronation, but an emergency plan, an association that will come into effect when the need is great. I fear that today’s civilization, its states and world organizations will put our world in such a precarious situation that its people will be forced to affirm themselves with a global totalitarian plan envisioned by our world leaders to ‘rescue’ our planet. The choice will be to live as cattle or to be excluded from the system (no longer allowed to work, no longer receive benefits). Kossaat is for people who cannot confirm themselves with the new society and are therefore forced to self-reliance.
I rather believe in a network of owners and sympathizers, who join Kossaat and at the same time try to survive within the system of their respective countries. So it is certainly not the intention to claim a territory or to live together in a community, rather it is the intention to create an alternative economy and a platform for spiritual and cultural exchange.
If you know of yourself that you cannot live as a fully domesticated human, I think it would be wise to create at least partly that self-reliant life in the present, as a kind of insurance for your future dystopia, so that you can withdraw if it gets too totalitarian. Self-sufficiency by going off-grid or starting a permaculture garden is a good start, but personally I think buying a second home or plot of land in a remote region is a better option; because in urbanized areas more regularizations will be imposed and the totalitarian regime can enforce more control. How far you want to go in this is entirely your choice. There are people who chose already for a fully self-reliance lifestyle, to be ahead of their forced self-banishment. I personally choose to remain with one foot in the current system (yet). The least you can do as a remotist is to gain knowledge and experience.
Blue represents ecosystems around the coast and major rivers, green represents ecosystems from the hills, the two ecosystems in which most Europeans live. The red and white inguz rune symbolizes the eternal chain of rebirths in which we are individual links. I advocate the doctrine of spiritual freedom, property rights and unforced naturalness. It is this doctrine that ultimately confronts us with totalitarianism (which revolutionaries and ideologists unintentionally support). As long as the totalitarian state can maintain itself, Kossaat will be a form of rural anarchism. For practical reasons, Kossaat will be an individualist anarchist association, as its participants will be individuals who live far away from each other and will in the first place have to learn to fill in their own lives.
Remotists and outlaws will establish an alternative economy and will do on cultural exchange. Instead of wanting to pursue an organization, here I call this loose association Kossaat. So Kossaat is rather a growing movement than something you may or may not be a member of. Kossaat might become similar to the history of the Cossacks who had to banish themselves to the corners of the Russian Empire to live free. History repeats itself. A uniting flag or patch can help as a unifying factor.
Kossaat is an obsolete Flemish word for a small farmer or kosatter. Kos comes from the word cottage: a house with stables (instead of a farm). A kosatter owns a house and land, but, unlike a farmer, does not own enough land to run a profitable business, which means that he must have a job elsewhere or hire more land. Unlike the farmer, the kosatter had no voting rights in board meetings on landscape matters. The farmer became the state, the kosatter the domesticated man, who often even lost his land and house. The idea behind Kossaat is to at least regain and control the kosatters own croft, something the totalitarian state is already trying to prevent today (through regularizations and taxes).
I am the author of all essays and artworks on this website, but feel free to spread the word and share the images posted on this page, as this webpage will probably stay rather unvisited. But unlike my essays and artworks, you don’t even have to mention me, as I am here rather the medium of what I see happening in this world.
Nativistic Belgian Party
For naturalness, liberty, respect and loyalty!
Nativists against ethnicity
Nativists want to structure society around the lineage of their people, in our cause around Belgians, not on the common values or norms they share. The naturalness of a people forms on the long run the fundamental basis of individual liberty. As free man and woman we should carve our own destiny, and that destiny will form the society of our people. The lineage mark is the 19th century and 50% genetic conformity. Strangers can become Belgian by marriage or adoption. We belief that nativism is the ultimate conservative boundary to preserve our so cherished freedoms for the coming generations. Without it an ethnic police state will be needed to preserve safety in the pluralistic society progressives create.
Language is the norm that divides the Belgian people. As nativists reject ethnicity we don’t recognize Flemings and Walloons as a people. These are ethnic constructions. Better if the regions dissolve in the provinces. To bridge this existential problem we choose to speak English on meetings within the party. And we strongly support English as a working language trough all governmental departments. Ultimately the origins of English lies in the union of Dutch and French, so it is natural to choose this language. And not to forget that the native English are our closest relatives.
Small government, strict rules
Big government means more ethnic constructs and thus lesser freedoms. The government should handle its basic tasks: safety and economic policing. The welfare state could be replaced by compulsory insurance by and for the native Belgian people only. Economic policing should be reduced to simple rules. For example that products on the Belgian marked can only be sold by Belgian companies owned by native Belgians. The borders are open, but there will be no social safety net for nonnatives, except bread and a roof during the night for those who should otherwise starve to dead.
All classes belong to the tribe
Social mobility is important, but rather than to play a power game between the classes, we want to bring them together. Localism and meritocracy can play in some form a role in doing so. Incentives should exists to redirect successful people to their tribe, instead of them indulging in senseless materialism. We belief that strong and successful people uplift society. But therefore we need them close and we need to work together as in a tribe.
