IN 1776 some British colonists on the Atlantic coast of North America revolted because they were unwilling to pay some trivial taxes and wanted to issue their own currency at par with that of the Bank of England. They won a civil war (the only real civil war in our history) against their fellow colonists who wished to remain loyal to the mother country, and, thanks to the folly of King Louis XVI of France, who committed the resources of his country to their support and thereby bankrupted it, and to the treason of the English Whigs, who sabotaged British efforts to regain authority over the insurgent colonists, they won their independence and obtained undisputed possession of the richest portion of the globe yet unoccupied by civilized men. In 1788 they formed a federation with a rationally framed constitution that was designed to supplement the constitution of the several states then in force and to prevent both monarchy and democracy. They therefore had before them an opportunity for greatness that had been given to no other people in the recorded history of mankind.
From that unprecedentedly grand and auspicious beginning, they, through their own doltish stupidity and incredible folly, have brought themselves to their present state of degradation, in which they are, for all practical purposes, livestock on a vast plantation owned by those who invaded and took over their country. If the Americans were merely too ignorant and witless to perceive their captivity, one might feel some compassion for them, but they, while slobbering with mindless sentimentality, have become so craven and groveling that they even fawn upon those who have been set upon them to chevy and harry them. To this pass have Americans come in two hundred years.
These unfortunates are now living under a tyranny in which whatever General Manager their owners appoint to the White House has the officially legal and undisputed power to confiscate all their property, including their homes, and to put them in labor camps in which they will have to do whatever work they are ordered to do. But just because their owners have not yet taken the trouble to throw them into work camps, the uncomprehending wights, like cows walking stolidly into a slaughter house in which the sledge hammer will soon fall on their heads, plod cheerfully along, switching their tails to discourage flies, while gabbling about their wonderful “liberty and freedom.”
So what the Hell is there to celebrate?
From Instauration, December 1975

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.
The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.Listen: Turner Diaries commercial
