The Rectification of Names is obviously important, if our talk is to be pertinent to reality, ergo effectual. But prior to the rectification of terms is the rectification of the grammar we use to treat of them. If we can’t agree on the right *way* to talk, we shall certainly find it impossible to agree on the right things to talk *about.*
Too often on sites putatively dedicated to the restoration of the West, or of Tradition, or to Reaction (toward tradition) have I seen writers err grammatically, at the most basic level; even that of the agreement as to number of subject and verb. It makes them look like fools.
Grammar more even than diction – than, i.e., the names we mostly have for this or that – is the basic tradition, and the basis of all other tradition. Grammar is the tradition of tradition. When grammar goes, you can bet that everything else has gone, too. For, grammar is the basis of linguistic communication. If you can’t get your grammar straight, you can’t get straight.
If you can’t or don’t care to get your grammar straight, you are not a reactionary or a traditionalist. Whatever you might say, or want to believe, you are a liberal, and a nominalist. It doesn’t matter how based or real or woke your thoughts may be. If they can’t be expressed grammatically, they can’t be of the Right. They cannot therefore be quite right.
So, express yourself grammatically.
