Download: Wilmot Robertson’s Dispossessed Majority
ALTHOUGH IT IS MARRED by a Nordicism that has the potential to divide North Americans of European descent, Wilmot Robertson’s The Dispossessed Majority is still a classic of prescience and analysis and well worth reading.

‘The sickness of America is the sickness of the American Majority, which is presently racked by a double infection: (1) the moral debility of liberalism, which has brought about a near-fatal split in the ranks of the Majority at the very time it should be most united; (2) the rampant virus of minority racism, which has sapped the Majority’s powers of resistance and diluted its group consciousness.
‘Sick to the point of moral disintegration, the Majority has become the loser in a racial war. In this context the book examines the backgrounds, strengths, and weaknesses of the combatants, with special emphasis on the assimilable and unassimilable minorities. It records the sorry chronicle of Majority reverses on all the important battle grounds cultural, religious, political, economic, and diplomatic. Since the liberal-minority coalition has emerged victorious on all fronts, it is not an overstatement to describe the losers as the Dispossessed Majority.
‘The Majority’s defeat is a great misfire of history, a harbinger of decadence and downfall. For the Majority is America. If the former goes, the latter goes, as recent events are making all too clear. The question is no longer the survival of hallowed political, legal, and economic dogmas, but the survival of Western man in the New World, and perhaps in the Old. Those who are assuming control of the United States have a long history of failure in the art of civilization. As always, what they cannot measure up to, they are driven to destroy.
‘But there is still hope, and throughout the book many iconoclastic yet essential measures are proposed for the realization of this hope. The regeneration of a dying people is an all-or-nothing mission that will strain Majority capabilities to the limit. It is no easy task to reject the indoctrination of half a century, to rescue a magnificent idea from its despoilers, and to return to the very old in order to create the very new.
‘Wilmot Robertson is a native Pennsylvanian whose family goes back to colonial times and whose forebears fought on both sides of the Civil War. The author waited for decades for a qualified Majority scholar to write this book. Having waited in vain, he decided to take on the project himself and devoted ten years to it. His credentials are long periods of study in American and foreign universities, three years’ overseas service as an army officer in World War II, a varied career in journalism, advertising, and small business and, above all, an overwhelming concern for the darkening tragedy of his people.’
