There has been lots of talk about an Asian-Aryan ethnostate lately, with many people drawing inspiration from Kazakhstan… One or several Asian Aryan ethnostates, populated exclusively of Whites, Asians and Eurasians, might indeed pop up in North America or elsewhere in the near future.
However, thinking in terms of countries and nation-states is very much an inheritance of the 19th and 20th centuries (more exactly an inheritance of the Westphalian order dating back to 1648 or so, that defined the modern nation-states as we know them).
Before that, we had principalities, merchant republics, guilds and leagues. People did not define themselves by their appartenance or loyalty to a nation-state. This is why it is so pathetic to watch all those “nationalists” of today being so emotionally attached to a construction that is 2, 3 or 400 years old at best.
There are more than one way of defining oneself’s identity.
The world in the 21st century is again witnessing the dissolution of nation-states and a redefinition of human alliances into globally-distributed commonalities of interest.
People travel all the time, relocate, and connect mostly through the internet. As such, you have more connections with people who share the same interests on the other side of the world than with your physical neighbors.
Enter the Asian Aryan Tong
In Chinese, the word “Tong” means “hall” or “gathering place”. The Tongs were secret societies that helped ethnic Chinese immigrants in North America, who faced hostility and discrimination from the natives. Those underground associations were for support and protection.
Tongs initially originated in an esoteric secret society called the Tiandhui, that was loyal to the Ming dynasty which it wanted to restore, and which was dedicated to overthrow the Qing dynasty.
The tongs met in Clan Halls, accepted members through initiation ceremonies and practiced the ancestral Chinese folk religion. They sometimes got involved in illegal activities, but today, their main aims are to care for their members and their respective communities.
A Clan Hall
Some tongs, – especially in Southeast Asia – evolved into kongsi, or Overseas Clan Associations. The kongsi were more explicitely geared towards business, mutual lending and legal help. The kongsi is similar to modern business partnerships, but also draws on a deeper spirit of cooperation and consideration of mutual welfare. Many kongsi ended up as multinational conglomerates.
– In Borneo, mining kongsis united to form kongsi federations that functioned as self-governing states. Among the largest kongsi federations was the Lanfang Kongsi, which organised the mostly Hakka Chinese miners who had settled in western Borneo and established a republic, the Lanfang Republic, in what is now the Indonesian province of West Kalimantan.
– Singapore itself is largely a product of the tongs and kongsis.
– Taiwan as well could mostly manage independence, stability and rapid development because of the tongs, which were all pro-Kuomintang and all moved there massively.
Asian-Aryans are now in the same situation. We are few in numbers, but growing. We face discrimination. We want to live among our own, help each other and thrive.
The Asian-Aryan, or Eurasian ethnostate will not build itself. Any attempt at state-building requires a combination of both business support and political activism.
The Tong is the most adapted form of organization for the 21st century. It is also a precursor for a merchant republic of our own.
We Asian-Aryans have humble aims. We would be satisfied with our own city state, for a start. Thenwe might replicate that concept elsewhere. In the meantime we can organize to live according to our own culture while being among normies in the current society.
It is therefore time to revive the Tong for Asian-Aryans. To create Clan Associations for our emerging ethnicity.
