The Racial Revolution and the Middle Class

Speculations of a political activist

BECAUSE OF ITS inhibitions and inertia, the middle class will be the last to participate in the coming racial conflict. This means we must endeavor to reach and organize the upper and lower classes first.

The middle class’s importance is primarily functional, not time-sequential. The idea of working from the top down and the bottom up has eluded us because most of us come from the middle class. But the truth is that the upper classes and the lower middle and working classes are far more accessible to our ideas.

Let us examine each of the three classes for their current revolutionary consciousness and potential:

1. The Privileged Class. The worst and best will be found here, but only a very, very few members of this degenerate class will be of help. Since our task is to build a new aristocracy, the remnants of the old upper class will provide a meager but necessary foundation.

A few wealthy people and a few intelligent professionals have the ability to comprehend the biological, cultural and political dimensions of our failing culture. Consequently, they will be among the first who can fully appreciate the promise of a new White civilization.

Second, many members of the privileged class have been in close contact with our Jewish mentors and have had the best opportunity to understand them. Those who know most about Jews don’t like what they see — in spite of the ritualistic flattery and praise.

Third, the privileged class is composed of experienced leaders, of which a handful still feel some responsibility for the well-being of their race. These men of action and vision, accustomed to command and dominance, but now reduced to a subservient status, should be intrigued by the possibility of ruling a regenerated America, as their ancestors ruled before them.

Finally, as aristocrats, a few still have a yen for victory. They may not always be of the highest intelligence, but they are schooled in the methods of power. A small minority have the ruthlessness, callousness and heartlessness it takes to win in a contest for big stakes.

2. The Lower Class. Exploited, victimized and oppressed by the System, the broad masses of White blue-collar workers have developed a deep hatred for established society and are now beginning to be receptive to a racial message. These are increasingly desperate people who have been hardest hit by inflation, taxes, busing, crime and reverse discrimination. They have little to lose by opting for action. As our ideology sinks in, their present mood of doom and despair may give way to a restive hopefulness.

Living and working side by side with Blacks, having escaped the mental pollution of higher education, lower-class members have brains that are still functional. Their perception of events makes them less susceptible than other Whites to the equalitarian myths and biological perversions of the media.

Also, the masses are more easily organized and more willing to be led. Racial populism, if we can get the message through to them, will accord with their main drives and inclinations.

3. The Middle Class. Of the lower, middle and upper divisions of this class, the latter is by far the least race-conscious and indeed the most degenerate and defenseless. There are several major reasons why the middle class is not yet ready for action, although most of these can later be turned to our advantage. Generally speaking, this great human mass of inertia is what holds the System or the status quo together.

The paranoid middle class has fled to the suburbs where it has built itself a dream world that is both physically and psychologically distant from the deadly problems of the city proper. Middle-class members are materialistic, selfish and politically obsessed with “economics,” which comprises 90% of conservative and libertarian ideology. When the System breaks down and takes middle-class prosperity with it, a racial program will attract middle-class members by offering them a chance to save or regain their own property.

“Moderation” is the watchword of Middle America, which is enamored with respectability and abhors any form of “extremism.” Most middle-class Whites simply cannot believe that radical action is now the only possible effective action. But when the collapse hits its bottom, our position will seem “moderate and reasonable” to the desperate bourgeoisie. When chaos prevails, our blueprint for a post-Western society will be the only “moderate” course, since it will be the only valid prescription for order and security.

The middle-class is politically inept (perhaps apolitical is a better term), as proved by the ludicrous Republican and Libertarian party platforms. Whether Jews, who are moving into the higher echelons of these parties, can adequately train and further corrupt the non-Jewish leaders before we are ready to press them into our own service is questionable. Whatever happens, the middle class will continue to be misled politically until the time comes for us to recruit them.

Radicalizing the middle class is analogous to turning a gigantic wheel. If the middle class is the huge, ponderous hub, then the best approach is to grasp the rim (the upper and lower classes) and give the wheel a hefty spin. Since the wheel has spokes connecting the rim to the middle class hub, the extreme movement will be transferred directly to the center.

    I find this a convincing argument.
    And yet, and yet, I know a few middle class people who are totally /ourguys (and at least one who is /ourgal but doesn’t want that to get out and poison her social circles).

    Maybe it is just the “exception that proves the rule thing”.

    I certainly share the experience of how DIFFICULT it is to inspire these moo-cows to lift their eyes to the dangers approaching.

    And yet, some do seem to wake up anyway.

    And it isn’t just that they encountered black violence, or anti-white racism and suddenly saw the light — some I know live with such phenomina for decades and just never made any connections — then someday they blunder out of the maze and can’t get back in even if they wanted to.
    (And some do, I suspect, wish they could go back, but they just can’t “un-see”/”un-understand” — too much intellectual honesty.).

    Hey maybe that is the whole deal: Those middle class cattle with sufficient intellectual honesty — say maybe only contained to their technical work for decades and decades — maybe the day gomes that this mental discipline derails and runs amuck through their sacred cow temple and they are done. Hoist by their own petard of redeeming intellectual qualities so to speak.

    So my new experiment:
    1. Notice normies with intellectual honesty on rails.
    2. Subtly engage them in ways gratifying to this intellectual habit yet that lead to broader considerations.
    3. Enjoy the derailment and subsequent shennanigans
    (And help them with the right ideas when they are ready
    for a hand.)

    Sounds funny, but maybe…?

    The best can be found in every grade of White society.

    I saw the following chart in the 1970s:

    Wealthy — upper rich — rich — lower rich — upper middle — middle — lower middle — upper poor — poor — lower poor.

    Correction: The bottom is not poor. It’s — upper lower — lower — lower lower.
