Power and Losing

sower-after-millet-18891by Andrew Hamilton

WE HAVE BEEN without genuine freedom of speech or association for so long that we don’t even know what they mean anymore. Ordinary Whites are completely clueless. They’re anti-White racists and neo-communists because that’s what the System tells them to be. From morning to evening and birth to death that’s all they hear. They’re denizens of Oceania. (ILLUSTRATION: Vincent Van Gogh, The Sower (after Millet), 1889)

White racialists, an iconoclastic subset, think it means addressing a miniscule audience on a tiny website or individual blog, or organizing six people for a street protest — until a writer or activist is taken down by the System, at which point remaining racialists gleefully join the Left-wing mob in kicking the helpless victim to a bloody pulp. He didn’t get it! He said the wrong things! He acted the wrong way! I have witnessed this unedifying spectacle again and again over the decades.

Any given Counter-Currents article I write will be seen by roughly 1,000-2,000 people. Seen by (i.e., clicked on), not necessarily read or agreed with; only a small number will actually read a piece with some degree of sympathy and understanding, or have a seed planted that will eventually take root and grow, which is the best one can hope for.

A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched; and since they had no root they withered away. Other seeds fell upon thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.

Such are the hard facts of the World Wide Web. At best, my variable little audience is equivalent to one very small town in the Midwest. Like a politician who is cognizant of every single vote (and, believe it or not, those not representing one-party districts are), I value every single reader (excluding the evil ones paid to monitor the Right). It’s not that. Rather, it is imperative to keep things in proper perspective.

The situation is especially strange in that in addition to theoretical access to a worldwide audience of English readers, market forces — supply and demand — are in my favor. I fill an unmet need. In a genuine marketplace of ideas there would be some demand, certainly more than there is now, for suppressed facts, information, and opinions. But this natural demand is not there. The absence of a greater positive response is like the dog that didn’t bark in “Silver Blaze,” alerting the perceptive observer that something was seriously wrong. (“I had grasped the significance of the silence of the dog, for one true inference invariably suggests others,” Sherlock Holmes noted.) In our case the primary culprit is disparate power, and the refusal of elites to play by the rules.

Conversely, those who hate my race — and I mean hate it — broadcast their hatred repeatedly, many times daily, to billions of people worldwide: a distinctly unnatural state of affairs in an ostentatiously “anti-racist” culture. Thousands and thousands of people make exceptionally good livings doing this. They monopolize not only the mass media of communications with their racist and totalitarian bile, but educational systems, governments, legal systems, and other institutions as well — everywhere. This, also, is not natural. It is exceedingly strange.

Such a lopsided disparity of power can have only one possible outcome in terms of who wins, who loses, and why. Therefore, I never scratch my head, stumped, wondering blankly: “Why are Whites doing this to themselves?” I’d be dense, dishonest, or willfully blind to express such puzzlement.

With all due respect to race and genetics, environment is also important. Psychological plasticity seems nearly limitless. Human beings are malleable.

In order to survive, Whites must begin thinking in terms of power. We’re where we are because of power, and only a radical shift in power will change that. Words and images released into an artificially-maintained vacuum will not. They need to regularly reach millions (nay, billions) of people, and be just as vicious and uncompromising in content as those of Jews and the Left.

Whites can stick to Marquess of Queensberry rules, but their destroyers will not. They fight dirty. By way of deception they destroy freedom and commit genocide. And, for now, the world is their oyster.

Even as 2013 draws to a close, the Internet is viewed by some as a game changer. Unfortunately, that opportunity, if it ever existed, is gone. Control of the new medium is already in the hands of the same crowd that formerly maneuvered its way into dominance over motion pictures, radio, and television.

The largest websites are media and e-commerce domains generating billions of dollars in revenue annually, and tightly linked to repressive governments, the ADL, the SPLC, the National Security Agency (NSA), and other sinister organizations. All actively suppress speech, even in the US, the only country left where Jews have not expressly outlawed it. And that was only due to the foresight and principle of European leaders who lived 228 years ago!

The new Internet kings propagate the same old Hollywood-New York-Washington “values” on a scale that dwarfs anything impecunious racialists under constant pressure from Jews and government can muster. Truth alone will not set us free.

As one man long ago observed:

The fundamental error of the right wing — that sweet reason will change the world and save us from the Jewish tyrants.

Reason is still an infant in human affairs, a precious and rare development found in the mutational brains of an infinitesimal minority of Homo sapiens. And even the few geniuses able to exercise genuine, independent reason are almost entirely incapable of acting in accordance with the dictates of that reason — which is one of the reasons so many of them end up as failures in a world which does not appreciate them or their reason.

It is FORCE, POWER, STRENGTH which rules the world, from the ebb and flow of the tides to the decision of your neighbor to join the Rotary. Only a negligible fringe of oddball humans change their mind as a result of being convinced by a superior argument. The overwhelming masses, including the mass of today’s “intellectuals” [emphasis added], change their minds only in order to CONFORM. In other words, the minds of the vast majority ALWAYS bow to the strongest opinion — the opinion which brings rewards and avoids punishment.

The right wing examines its reasons and arguments and facts and finds them true and good — as they may be. They then become outraged [or hopelessly befuddled] when the slobs next door cannot see and appreciate this rightness and, very probably, throw them out of the house for preaching “hate.” But this is only as things are. The slobs will hold whatever opinion seems to show the most strength and WILL TO POWER. They are completely, hopelessly female in their approach to reason and always, ALWAYS prefer strength to “rightness.”

This is a “secret” the Jews learned long ago.

Another voice from the past:

Things are very bad indeed, but they are far from hopeless. Only a people or a nation that gives itself up for lost is truly and irrevocably lost. There is a bloody and terrible ordeal ahead of us, and many will perish — but our race can still be saved, and that, in the long run, is all that counts.

Do not be discouraged by the indifference of the people around you. Remember, the great mass of people have always been like that and always will be. When the Christians are ahead they cheer for the Christians, and when the lions are ahead they cheer for the lions. They have no understanding or concern for anything but the present and for what they see as directly affecting their comfort, welfare, or security.

But the masses do not make history. [Again, “the masses” includes academics, intellectuals, and high-IQ and socially successful people generally. It is not a class thing.] That is and always has been the task of the few. Those few must embody in themselves a majority of will and determination. They must know what they want and be willing to do whatever is necessary to achieve their goal.

Today the old order of things is crumbling into ruin, and the world will never again be restored to what it was before. But a new order will eventually emerge from the wreckage of the old.

It is only too late to save the present order from final collapse. It is not too late to begin building the new.

How many are “the few”? Here’s the assessment of a formidable achiever, also deceased, whose judgment on such matters cannot be taken lightly, much less dismissed out of hand: “In my view, when there are nine thousand men in a country who are capable of facing prison from loyalty to an idea, this idea remains a living one.”

For conceptual purposes, this might be adopted as a provisional benchmark since, implicitly, the reference is to a minority existing amidst a hostile majority in a Jewish-Leftist state. It imparts concrete substance to the idea of “the few” whose task it is to embody within themselves a majority of will and determination.

Of course, the speaker was probably referring to an extraordinary level of commitment, on the order of an Anders Breivik or Timothy McVeigh. Even so, he added, “And as long as a man [i.e., presumably one man] is left to carry the flag, nothing is lost. Faith moves mountains.”

Each of the three men just quoted was an optimist. They said so explicitly and their words and deeds bore them out. Yet each “failed.” I qualify “failed,” because in a larger spiritual sense (as far as White survival is concerned) they were all successes given the insurmountable odds they faced.

Moreover, the battle in which they were engaged still rages. It is world-historical and spans generations. The outcome has yet to be determined. Although it would be wrong to say that they represented — or desired to represent — the forces of Light, they most certainly opposed the forces of Evil on the race issue.

God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm.

Jews and the Left focus societal rage on specific targets. They deliberately demonize individuals, organizations, movements, and ideas. Those on whom they train their sights are invariably depicted as utterly evil. There is no gray, no complexity, no “other side” of an issue. Everything is crass, simple, and stupid: “Axis of evil” (12.3 million Google results), “The Butcher of Lyon,” “The Angel of Death,” “Chemical Ali.” They understand that nuance and evenhandedness are the enemies of hate. Their most brazen and startling innovation, perhaps, is to so often depict good people, in fact the best, as evil, and the evil as good, in order to traduce justice.

The Left obsessively studies its enemies, spies on them, and meticulously identifies and catalogues their strengths and, especially, their ordinary human frailties. Finally, they isolate and destroy the poor creatures without mercy or remorse. Pitiless and cruel, they enjoy hurting and humiliating people.

The Jew who crushed the young life out of blonde Rachel Corrie with his bulldozer is paradigmatic. (He ran over her twice.) An Israeli military investigation and an Israeli court both exonerated the killer, who was demolishing a Palestinian family’s home. The court rejected the American parents’ civil suit against the State of Israel, contemptuously claiming Jews were not to blame for the girl’s death. The parents had sued for a symbolic one US dollar in damages.

Many, many Jews had a holiday in their heart when they witnessed Corrie’s murder. It is the sort of thing that fulfills their most cherished, bloodthirsty fantasies.

And not only Jews, but the Jeffrey Harts, John McCains, and Lindsey Grahams of every Gentile race as well. For the admirers of Jews are Legion.

Germans, hardcore anti-Communists, Rhodesians, South Africans, Southerners, believing Christians (not many of those left anymore), Holocaust revisionists, broken 90-year-old WWII veterans, White racialists, opponents of replacement migration — even the Tea Party, “conservatives,” and Republicans! — are mercilessly subjected to the same brutal, Soviet-style treatment.

In the process of destroying flesh and blood individuals and civic organizations, they simultaneously destroy ideas, organic social movements, and the spiritual forces behind them. Their modus operandi has proven spectacularly successful, so much so that we now wallow in the detritus, the civilizational shambles, the spiritual toilet that is the natural expression of their race soul.

The forces for good will make a great leap forward when they start thinking concretely and realistically in terms of power, of specific enemies and oppressors, and act accordingly.

As far as the messages people are permitted to think and hear go, why should today’s rulers be the only ones with a voice? Why should they possess a monopoly on violence? Why should they be permitted to shut everybody else up, jail, assault, torture, murder, assassinate, and even commit genocide against anyone they please? Why should they, and they alone, destroy any nation they choose, jailing, humiliating, murdering, and even sodomizing fallen leaders in their insatiable quest for world dominion?

Why?

Like Communism, this is not a natural state of affairs.
