The Epic State of Mind
by John Young
I HAD the opportunity to take a couple of classes at a local college at my employers’ expense. One of these classes was an American History course, which the obviously Jewish professor seized upon to make every possible point in favor of multiracialism, instill White guilt, deny the reality of race — calling it a “social construct” — etc. The single thing this instructor fears more than anything, according to his statements to the class, is a person that he designates a “True Believer.” Because, as he said, “a True Believer can change the world.”
Of course, the instructor misunderstands the very thing he fears. Eric Hoffer wrote The True Believer in 1951 and “True Believer Syndrome” was coined by M. Lamar Keene in his 1976 book The Psychic Mafia to describe a pattern of behavior in which an individual believes something that is utterly irrational even in the face of overwhelming and uncontradictable proof to the contrary. An honest example of a True Believer, then, would be the instructor himself — who seemingly believed that race is merely a “social construct” in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary. Either way, a prerequisite for a person to be referenced as a True Believer is that his belief must be clearly, unambiguously, and provably false.
Merely being a True Believer is not enough to change the world.
Take, for example, the Christian missionaries in sub-Saharan Africa who, in spite of ardent belief and endless self-sacrifice, have failed in their mission for hundreds of years because they are expecting a result from their efforts that is not in keeping with observable reality. Look also at the Great Society programs and similar political movements that have failed to achieve their stated objectives for the same reason.
Of course, what the professor fears is not really the True Believer.
A True Believer’s range of effectiveness is intrinsically limited by the fact that his behavior is based upon false premises and will thus, at a certain point, be stymied by reality.
But to give the Jewish professor a little credit, while he has the terminology wrong, he does have something to fear. He has something to fear from people who are not fooled by his assertions and claims. This is what he really meant in using the term.
What the instructor truly fears is a person whose unshakeable belief in the facts of reality cannot be undercut by empty rhetoric and media manipulation, whose aims go far beyond the individual, and whose aims encompass a time frame extending from the deepest past to the farthest future. Such a person can be said to possess an Epic State of Mind — and the good professor’s fear for the change wrought by such people is not misplaced.
Ours is an organization that attracts people with an Epic State of Mind, in the image of our founder Dr. Pierce who dedicated his life to our righteous cause. His writings and American Dissident Voices broadcasts serve to awaken that mindset in places where it may have lain dormant.
This — the nature of the people attracted to our organization, people with an Epic State of Mind — explains the longevity and relative success of our organization compared to others that were and are based mainly on hatred of “the other,” on a particular personality, or on short-range “issue of the moment” thinking. The mindset of our members has sustained our organization across multiple generations and continues to energize the striving toward goals which have remained unchanged for decades — and will continue unchanged until long past their realization.
Dr. Pierce’s selection of the Life Rune as our symbol was therefore auspicious. The Life Rune, or Algiz, has been used by our Folk for thousands of years to denote not just life and birth; but also protection. It is a rune that reminds us not only of our present as being a continuation of an heroic past, but that also outlines our vision of the future in a positive and affirming way: Life. Not death. Not hatred. Not short-range goals. But the long-range goal of Life for our People for millennia to come as we reach for the stars, and our every achievement along that path, becomes an affirmation of our goal.
Thus, we bring men and women to our banner with a positive life-affirming — and true — belief in our cause and a willingness to play a role, no matter how great or small, in the rebirth and awakening of our people to a greater future.
Possessing an Epic State of Mind is not the sole province of kindly physics professors. Our Folk from all walks of life and all levels of ability may possess it or have it awakened within them. Each awakened person will patiently work within his best abilities to forward the cause. That work will continue in spite of Jewish-inspired societal condemnation, because such condemnation is recognized as irrelevant and false. Each person’s work will combine with the efforts of others. At times, those efforts may grow slowly — but they always grow and always move forward relentlessly.
And that is the point.
WE — the men and women of an Epic State of Mind —
WE — who see ourselves as playing a role in the shaping of history for generations hence —
WE — who forego short-term pleasures and gains for the good of the cause to stand as the Vanguard of future generations —
WE — whose ideas come from factual reality and thus will always persist —
WE — the men and women of the Rune of Life —
We shall ultimately succeed and secure our people’s future. We will change the world. And we will turn the Jewish professor’s world on its head, justifying his fears. We will do it. We will do it all.
We will do it all for the unborn generations of our People, for Love, and for Life.
