Elon_MuskAmerican Dissident Voices broadcast of May 23, 2015

Listen to the broadcast

On today’s program, Mr. Strom shares the letter he wrote to Elon Musk (pictured), the founder of Paypal and the man behind Tesla Motors and the pioneering private space exploration company SpaceX.

Mr. Elon Musk
Space Exploration Technologies Corporation

DEAR MR. Musk:

I recently watched the interview you gave to the World Post, and I was struck by your insights into the demographic decline of that part of the human population of this planet on which we absolutely depend for the continuance of our civilization. I was honestly amazed that you — unlike most men who have achieved eminence, and who hence have a great deal to lose — took on, without any apparent hesitation, an issue . . . → Read More: The Challenges We Face: An Open Letter to Elon Musk

God — A Work in Progress

Earth

by Max Musson

MOST PEOPLE fall into the trap of believing that there is either;

1. A fully formed, often anthropomorphised, conscious, sentient, all knowing, all powerful, all loving God, who has a particular interest in, and cares for us; or

2. There is no God.

Dawkins is good at demolishing belief in the first of these possibilities and the mistake that most people make as a consequence is to believe that his arguments therefore prove that the second possibility is therefore correct.

Science indicates that the universe came into existence with the ‘Big Bang’ approximately 13.5 billion years ago. No one knows what existed prior to the Big Bang and the Big Bang consisted of a sudden out-rushing of raw energy from a central point, filling the void of nothingness that existed beforehand.

Whatever existed in the void . . . → Read More: God — A Work in Progress

Cosmotheist Ethics

Stars

by Dr. William L. Pierce

THE PERSONAL CONDUCT of those who strive to follow the One Path is based on three foundations: Knowledge, Discipline, and Service.

First comes knowledge — an understanding of the nature of man, of his relationship to the Whole, and of his purpose. Then must come action based on that understanding; we must put our knowledge to work. We must let it direct us in our daily lives, so that we live in accord with our ordained purpose, so that we serve the ends intended for us by the Creator.

Knowledge is our guide, and service is our object, but discipline gives us the indispensable means. Discipline allows us to actualize the potential strength which our knowledge gives us. Without discipline, our knowledge will remain sterile, our actions weak and ineffectual.

The gaining . . . → Read More: Cosmotheist Ethics

Hawking: Computers Will Overtake Us — But When They Do, Will They Have “Goals Aligned With Ours”?

Robot

Those who will make such weighty decisions — mere decades hence — must now be made aware of Cosmotheism and all its implications.

STEPHEN HAWKING today warned that computers will overtake humans in terms of intelligence at some point within the next century.

Speaking at the Zeitgeist 2015 conference in London, the internationally renowned cosmologist and Cambridge University professor, said: “Computers will overtake humans with AI [Artificial Intelligence] at some time within the next 100 years. When that happens, we need to make sure the computers have goals aligned with ours.”

Hawking, who signed an open letter alongside Elon Musk earlier this year warning AI development should not go on uncontrolled, added: “Our future is a race between the growing power of technology and the wisdom with which we use it.”

Identity, Purpose, Survival

teachers_WLP

“Identity, Purpose, Survival” is an early Cosmotheist-related article written by Dr. William Pierce

by Dr. William L. Pierce

DEAR FRIENDS, we have come a long way in five months. Do not be deceived by the brevity or the seeming ease of our progress. What we have learned so far can be stated in a few words, but a full appreciation and understanding of the meaning and implication of those words call for much careful thought. In the coming months we shall devote some of the necessary thought to the elucidation of those parts of our message already revealed, but it will not hurt us to look ahead occasionally to see where we are headed. We can always go back and digest more carefully what we learn.

We have been asking certain questions, and we have . . . → Read More: Identity, Purpose, Survival

The Need for a New Religion

cloudscapeby Max Musson

WE LIVE IN a world in which many people have a dark sense of foreboding. Particularly in Western European countries where we have experienced better times within living memory, there is a feeling that many facets of our lives are deteriorating and have been relentlessly deteriorating for several decades at least.

In material terms we appear to be better off than ever before and yet the material benefits themselves do not seem to adequately compensate for less welcome changes and the sense that somehow our civilisation is in decay. Also the greater awareness of environmental and demographic factors means that we are conscious of the fact that we in the West are ‘living beyond our means’ and beyond the means of our planet to sustain indefinitely. We are told that mankind is . . . → Read More: The Need for a New Religion

Fred Streed: A Cosmotheist Dialogue

galaxy_eternityIntroduction by William White Williams: “In 1978 a group of members who were especially interested in the religious or spiritual aspects of the National Alliance’s work organized the Cosmotheist Community Church.” That sentence from page 17 of the 1993 edition of William Pierce’s National Alliance Membership Handbook was removed in the 2005 edition — along with several other crucial passages, including pages 46-51, which described Christianity as an opposed ideology.

Additionally, entire paragraphs were removed from the section on general principles of National Alliance ideology and were replaced by a watered-down section on religion (p. 24), which stated, “Our membership consists of a variety of beliefs. A member may be very religious or very non-religious.”

Why did Erich Gliebe and Shaun Walker decide to remove those sections?

Following the Upward Path

Treeby Dr. William L. Pierce

LAST MONTH we received the first part of the answer we have been seeking. It did not seem to tell us much, but in reality it contained the essence of everything else we will learn. Let us think about it for a moment before we go on.

What we are seeking to discover is man’s purpose, both individually and collectively. Throughout a billion years of evolution the answer to our question has slowly taken shape and has been written by God on our souls, just as a different answer to an analogous question has been formed in the deepest part of the being of every living creature — and the non-living as well. (That is, the answers are different in detail, but they are all the same in a more . . . → Read More: Following the Upward Path

The Measure of Greatness

Adolf Hitler DrawingA Cosmotheist view of history’s most vilified man

by Dr. William L. Pierce

APRIL 20 of this year [1989] is the 100th anniversary of the birth of the greatest man of our era — a man who dared more and achieved more, who set his aim higher and climbed higher, who felt more deeply and stirred the souls of those around him more mightily, who was more closely attuned to the Life Force which permeates our cosmos and gives it meaning and purpose, and did more to serve that Life Force, than any other man of our times.

And yet he is the most reviled and hated man of our times. Only a few tens of thousands of men and women, in scattered groups around the world, will celebrate his birthday with love . . . → Read More: The Measure of Greatness

Winning

Cosmos

Without a deep understanding of one key concept, all pro-White efforts will inevitably fail. But there is a way to win.

by Dr. William L. Pierce

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK me, “Are we making any progress? Are we winning? Can you see victory ahead?”

I answer thus: “Yes, we are making progress, but not enough. The Enemy, despite a few setbacks he has suffered recently, is gaining ground faster than we are. Therefore, we cannot claim to be winning at this time. Nevertheless, I can see victory ahead — far, far ahead, and the road to that victory is rocky indeed. It runs through a vale of sorrows the likes of which we have never yet experienced.”

Let me explain my answer, because a full understanding of it is essential to all of you who have made, . . . → Read More: Winning

Following Our Race-Psyche

William_Pierce_runes

by Dr. William L. Pierce

BEFORE WE proceed further toward the answers to certain fundamental questions, let us fix one fact in our minds: Reason does not, and never has nor ever will, determine our ultimate goals for us. That determination must, by its very nature, be made by our inner sense of direction, by our psyche rather than by our intellect. It is essentially a religious rather than a rational decision.

No matter how clever we become, no matter how far we advance in every realm of science, we can never use our reason alone to answer such questions as: What actions, what modes of behavior, are, by their nature, evil, and what are good? Or, having defined good and evil, why should we strive to do good and to promote good things? . . . → Read More: Following Our Race-Psyche

Getting White Evolution Back on Track

A Conversation between Dr. William Pierce and Me

by James Harting

AUTHOR’S NOTE: In light of the recent discussion of the role of Cosmotheism in a revived National Alliance, Dr. Pierce’s comments in the third-to-the-last paragraph are especially interesting and relevant.

Some Background: I was a member of the National Headquarters staff of the National Socialist White Peoples Party/NEW ORDER in Arlington, Virginia, from 1977 through 1983. I left the staff on January 1, 1984, partly for personal reasons. I found myself at loose ends, both politically and financially. In the spring of that year, Dr. William L. Pierce of the National Alliance contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in working on a catalog for National Vanguard Books. Up to that point, NVB had no catalog, just a two-sided sheet of paper listing . . . → Read More: Getting White Evolution Back on Track

Awakenings

500-3American Dissident Voices broadcast of March 14, 2015

Listen to the broadcast

by Kevin Alfred Strom (pictured)

THE IDEA of “awakening the people” is a perennial chestnut of pro-American and pro-White political efforts — from paleoconservative Birchers to racialists of almost every stripe. “Awaken the American people” or “awaken White people” to their peril, and all will follow from that.

Our people slumber amidst a haze of media lies — so certainly awakening is necessary. But, equally certainly, all does not follow from that. The proper foundation has not been laid. The people themselves are deeply corrupted and deeply compromised — and have been for centuries. The foundation they once had, decades ago, was pretty poor to begin with — and has now been uprooted and all but destroyed. “The people” are, for . . . → Read More: Awakenings

Making Your Life Count

Dr-Pierce-portrait-by-SM-Casper_commissioned-by-Kevin-Alfred-Stromby Dr. William L. Pierce (pictured; portrait by S.M. Casper)

AS WE GROW OLDER our attitudes change — not just our opinions on particular subjects, but also our general outlook on life. This changing outlook is manifested in different people in different ways, but there are common elements which apply to most people. For example as most people grow older they become less willing to take chances — chances of any kind. Politically, economically, and socially they become more conservative, more determined to hold onto what they have than to try for something different. And older men are also less willing to risk their lives — even though they have much less to lose — than younger men are.

In addition to these things, many men at about mid-life — around the age of 40 . . . → Read More: Making Your Life Count

Cosmotheism: On Society (updated)

Music, video editing, reading by Omniphi

Text by Dr. William L. Pierce; introduction below by Kevin Alfred Strom:

EDITOR’S NOTE: On Society is the third essay, in a series of three, in which Dr. Pierce expresses the fundamentals of his philosophy, on which all of his political work was ultimately based. If you have not already done so, you should read The Path and On Living Things before reading On Society.

In prior articles in the series ‘Intimations of Cosmotheism’ on National Vanguard, I have shown that other writers and thinkers, including Charles Lindbergh and Sir Oswald Mosley, have expressed ideas parallel to those which Dr. Pierce brought to their fullest expression.

Dr. Pierce wrote these pieces — expressing what he saw as his most profound insights into the nature of reality — in somewhat poetic language. The . . . → Read More: Cosmotheism: On Society (updated)

Cosmotheism: The Path (updated)

Music, editing, and reading by Omniphi; text by Dr. William Pierce;
dedicated to Mary Phagan (June 1, 1899 – April 26, 1913).

Text by Dr. William L. Pierce; introduction below by Kevin Alfred Strom:

EDITOR’S NOTE: ’Cosmotheism’ is the name given by the late Dr. William Pierce to his philosophy of life — his religion, if you will — which embodied for him the fundamental truths about the nature of the Universe and our purpose in it. By the standards of a more childish and innocent time, Dr. Pierce might be adjudged an atheist, and by those who call themselves ‘atheists’ today — the narrow egoists of the Rand cult and its derivatives, and the sentimental Christians-without-Christ who constitute the ‘Secular Humanist’ and Marxian reformations of the gospel — he could not even be understood, so limited is their . . . → Read More: Cosmotheism: The Path (updated)

Out of the Darkness (updated)

by Dr. William L. Pierce
National Alliance General Convention, 1983; recorded and transcribed by Kevin Alfred Strom; video by Omniphi

TWO THOUSAND years ago the poet Ovid wrote that night is a sadder time than day. I know that’s always been true for me. When discouraging thoughts come, it’s usually at night.

Actually, I’m pretty cheerful most of the time. But it used to be that, occasionally, when I was working alone in the National Office late at night, a black thought would come into my mind — always the same thought. It was that there’s not enough time to do what I must do. It was that something will happen to me before the Alliance is strong enough to survive and continue growing without me.

Then a feeling of desperation would come over me and I would have to . . . → Read More: Out of the Darkness (updated)
