AS THE WHITE FOOLS “take the knee” and imagine that appeasing non-White haters from Blacks to Jews will have different results than it did in 1954, in 1965, in 1992, and in 2014, we as a society edge further and further down a road whose ultimate destination is death. We, weighed down by our fools and our Christians, are taking the same path that the White people in South Africa and Zimbabwe took. If only we are “nicer” to those who hate us, these fools say, if only we give them another 40 per cent. of our wealth, if only we mix with them more, if only we stop enforcing all our laws and all our standards of behavior they find irksome, then they will finally be “happy” and live in peace with us forevermore. Isn’t that what Jesus wants?
My late friend Revilo Oliver came close to despair at the suicidal, quasi-religious insanity that caused our European race to so abase itself, and when he was alive, more than a quarter century ago, that abasement was far less obvious than it is now. Dr. Oliver became so pessimistic that he regarded the fall of our society to have been in the past, as early as the 1970s — and he even titled his long-running column “Postscripts” to drive home the idea.
Dr. Oliver sometimes referred to us as “the self-doomed race.” He liked to remark that the White fools, by embracing the suicidal creeds of equality and multiracialism, had sentenced themselves to death and must “dree their weird” — a Scottish expression meaning “endure their fate,” that is, the fate they have brought upon themselves. I will quote, in part, what Oliver wrote in 1982 about White equality-believers, what they have brought upon us, and what they deserve, from a long out-of-print piece he wrote about formerly White Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe:
If you were God and looked down on this Earth in 1970, you would have seen the 210,000 White men and women of Rhodesia declare themselves an independent republic in a desperate effort to save their lives and property from the swarming savages about them. And you would have seen the White men and women of Britain, and the White men and women of the United States, and the White men and women of Canada and of Australia and of South Africa, and the White men and women of …Europe — you would have seen those [more than] 500,000,000 White men and women, who form 10% of the Earth’s population and could still rule the world, if they had left any vestiges of self-respect and manhood, gang up on the 210,000 of their kinsmen in Rhodesia and resolve to destroy them.
You would have seen virtually the whole of the White race inspired by the diseased sadism and depraved hate of their own kin that alone can be an intelligible explanation of their murderous unanimity. And looking down in 1981, you would have seen one of the first fruits of the crazed 500,000,000’s hatred of their kinsmen: Like the photographers of the press, you would have seen the gleeful grins of the Black ape-men as they hacked up the bronze statue of Cecil Rhodes, a symbolic enactment of the hacking up of all White men, of which everywhere they dream by night and think by day.
Even those who who would never dare to speak as Dr. Oliver or I have spoken would have to admit that his vision of the slaughter of Whites in Zimbabwe — and now in neighboring South Africa as well — has come absolutely, frighteningly true. The anti-White governments there look the other way while murdering gangs of Blacks mutilate and slaughter White men, women, and children by the thousands in the most horrible manner imaginable. And the Jewish-controlled media say almost nothing about this ongoing genocide that has been going on for forty years — I would say less then a millionth of what they’ve said about the death of one Black career criminal, George Floyd; less than a millionth of what they’ve said about Ahmad Arbery; less than a millionth of what they’ve said about Michael Brown. When are the fools going to “get it”? — “get” the obvious fact that the media are owned and operated by people who want us dead? — by people who brazenly encourage those, as Dr. Oliver put it, who “dream by night and think by day” of hacking up every last White man on planet Earth?
Even those who who would never dare to speak as Dr. Oliver or I have spoken would have to admit that his vision of the slaughter of Whites is now clearly on the horizon in America, too.
And, if you were God, a just god, and saw the White race’s obscene orgy of racial depravity, wouldn’t you have sent down from your heaven cleansing floods of purifying fires to annihilate a race so degenerate? In his place, I would have.
Oh, yes, I know what the apologists of the White race would say. They would say that the 500,000,000 White men and women didn’t really long to see the White women of Rhodesia raped and mutilated and the White men of Rhodesia mutilated or tortured to death. Oh, they didn’t really want that. They just didn’t give a damn. …And they had elected traitors to govern them and were just too craven and cowardly to protest. No, the White people are full of love and brotherhood — so full that, at their own expense, they are arranging to have their own children raped and butchered by subsidized savages.
…If you were a God, a just god, and heard such paltry excuses, such contemptible whining, would you be moved to withhold your purging floods or avenging flames? Neither would I.
…And so [in Rhodesia]… they joyfully hack up the bronze statue of a man who once hoped to civilize Africa, fondly believing that his own race would remain civilized.
But cleansing floods or purging fires do not fall from heaven on the pest-hole that is now “Zimbabwe.” Nor do they fall upon the White nations that assassinated Rhodesia.
No deluge, no conflagration, falls upon the foully guilty. There is no god. But no, wait a minute. Perhaps there is a just god and he has withheld the lightnings of his righteous vengeance because he has doomed that degenerate race to the far more painful, lingering, and terrible death that their own suicidal insanity is infallibly bringing upon them.
Powerful truths are in Oliver’s words. And profound pessimism. Oliver once said that he had achieved an “integral pessimism” — meaning complete pessimism — regarding the future of our race. But, high as my regard is for the good Dr. Oliver (I think he was one of the greatest Americans of the 20th century), I note that for every twenty profoundly pessimistic articles like this one, there were probably nineteen times he privately expressed a thin but nevertheless persistent hope that his writings would be of some use and inspiration to White men and women who someday might build a new civilization from the ruins left by this one. And when you see the monumental legacy of great writing he left to us, and what work and energy that legacy represents, you see the true extent of Oliver’s hope that he was making a difference. He began his patriotic work at age 46 and it did not end until his death at 86 — and his output was, if anything, greater in his last decade of patriotic work than it was in his first.
An acquaintance of mine is far more optimistic. As dire as our situation is, he says, and despite our falling percentage of the Earth’s population, it remains true that there are more White people on this planet now than there were 50 or 100 or 200 years ago. It is very, very difficult to exterminate a race of people. The Life Force is not dead within the best of us, he says, and there are millions of the best — still having children, still teaching them well, gradually withdrawing themselves from the society that the alien Jews have stolen from us. A terrible selective event, a Wolf Age, will leave us stronger and better than we have ever been before, he says.
We need a dose of optimism, in the sense that we need to constantly assess and evaluate all the positive forces and facts that we have in our arsenal, so that we can utilize them effectively when opportunities inevitably arise. Doing so gives hope — and hope and a positive attitude, an attitude that success can indeed be achieved, are essential for success in every endeavor — especially in recruiting people for the only cause that really matters.
We need a dose of pessimism, too, in the sense that we need to be constantly reminded of the very great forces arrayed against us, so that we may take them seriously, evaluate them accurately, and bear in mind always the great responsibility we bear for our children’s future, about which no other race, no other people, is going to care about but us. In a hostile and competitive world, we must use all our power and our genius to secure that future.
But more than anything else, we need realism.
Let us imagine that you and your wife and children are picnicking on a high, grassy hill. Unexpected, you see below in the valley the artillery of an invading enemy. They fire their cannon toward you. You have 20 seconds before the certainly fatal impact. You don’t have time for pessimism, for imagining with horror what the impact will do to your daughter’s face, your wife’s limbs, or your son’s strong young arms. You don’t have time for optimism, either — for thinking about how nice it will be when the enemy’s calculations of the trajectory of the cannonball are shown to be off by ten degrees, or how nice it will be when an orange man with big hair will ride in and save you with no effort required on your part. No, such optimism is fantasy — deadly fantasy.
You have time only for realism, the kind of realism that instantly leads to intelligent action — to move out of danger; then to rally others of your kin and countrymen to the cause of destroying the enemy invaders.
So that is what you do — what you must do.
And when you saw what you could do to save your daughter and your son and your wife and yourself — and did it — that was not optimism. That was not just daydreaming about a happy valley and believing that it’s true, while about to go under the cannonball. No. That moment of clarity and action was eminently realistic and the actions taken were practical and effective.
In short, integral pessimism and integral optimism lead us astray. What we need is realism and clarity about the realities of our own nature and the world about us. And I think we also need hope. And the greatest source of hope is not a fatuous “everything’s gonna be all right” mantra. It is the realization that we create the future by our own concerted actions. And so we will get off the track of the cannonball — of the track of death — and the hazards we avoid will most likely consume those who tried to trap us there. And, free once again and awakened forever, we will make a new and better world for future generations.
That’s the kind of realistic hope the National Alliance offers. The National Alliance is unique. It is uncompromising in its principles:
We maintain that Whites are the descendants of the race that developed in Europe over many millennia and created this civilization. We maintain that the Jewish race is an alien, unassimilable race and its international power structure is now by far the greatest threat to our survival. And we maintain that our unalterable goal is White living space, freedom and self-determination for our people in a state which makes racial survival, racial integrity, and racial progress its highest and non-negotiable goals.
Our definition of ourselves is a biological definition, a racial definition. No biological Jew, nor any member of the African or Asian races can be “converted” into one of us as one can be converted to a religion. No one not clearly of European stock can be a member of our people. Citizenship must be based on descent, not on an accident of geography or on artificial lines drawn on a map.
Assimilation of immigrants can work for immigrants of various nationalities but of the same race — as America proves. But it does not work for members of radically different races, as America also proves. Attempting to integrate the radically different Mestizos and Blacks and Semites into Euro-American society has been a total failure. The founding fathers and American patriots of many generations warned us of this, as the Alliance continues to warn us today.
America’s greatest failure was the importation of an even more dangerous race — the Jews — who, unlike the Blacks and Mestizos, had the advantage of similar skin color to ours and quite high average intelligence. The Jewish consciousness of their racial difference from us, and their desire to survive as a unique and dispersed people, were bars to assimilation and, more than that, were spurs to a century-long sub rosa war on Whites that is no longer sub rosa as recent events have shown — and which has yet to reach its conclusion.
The National Alliance brings us realism, and a guide to action that will ensure our survival. That is another way of saying that the National Alliance brings us truth.
The Romans had a saying, “Truth is mighty, and will prevail.” And so it shall — so long as the noble race, the scientific race, the beauty-loving race, the truth-loving race continues to exist on the Earth. Help us bring that truth to victory.
