Spiritual Man and South Africa
by William White Williams
Chairman, National Alliance
THE STATE OF the White race in southern Africa is one of extreme peril, stemming from the near-absolute political power of non-Whites there. It is hoped that White South Africans can successfully secede, establish their own homeland free of non-Whites, and hold it. But these Whites, mostly Afrikaners, must first free themselves of the binds of the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC). I seldom see any mention of this aspect of the Boer secessionists’ plight. A quick search on the word “Orania” reveals that the people of this White stronghold still embrace the DRC and other similar and suicidal Protestant creeds. William Pierce addressed this vital issue 22 years ago when he said
…[W]hen the crucial time came the Dutch Reformed Church did betray the Boers. Their church sold them out. Their church held them back from putting up any real resistance to the theft of their country. Why was that?
I don’t believe that the Dutch Reformed Church in its earlier days was anything but what it pretended to be, and that was a Boer institution. I don’t believe there was any long-running conspiracy in the Church to betray the Boers. But as the Boers prospered, so did the Church. The Church’s leaders became prominent men, wealthy men. Many of the Boers’ political leaders were ordained ministers in the Dutch Reformed Church. They were comfortable men, soft around the waist. They ate well and dressed well and lived well. And when the time came to make a hard choice: a choice between their people or their own comfortable positions …well, they made the kind of choice that comfortable people tend to make… The Boer establishment — including the Boers’ church — put its own short-term interests above the welfare, even the survival, of the Boer people. Greed prevailed over racial loyalty and racial responsibility.
In this regard it’s interesting to note what the Dutch Reformed Church has been up to since 1993. If the Church’s leaders expected South Africa’s new Black rulers to be grateful to them for pushing their Boer constituents toward surrender, they badly miscalculated. So the Church has continued to try to accommodate itself to its new situation and somehow hold onto whatever it can. Actually, even before 1993 the Church had reversed its former doctrine and had told Boers that apartheid was a sin. The Boers at least had the gumption in 1994 to shoot the preacher, to shoot the former leader of their church, who was responsible for that change, but shooting just one traitor wasn’t enough, and the Church kept back-pedaling anyway. Last month, the Dutch Reformed Church tried to merge with a Black and mixed-race church in South Africa and open its membership to all races…
Many who are concerned about the fate of Whites in southern Africa avoid speaking about how the Dutch Reformed Church betrayed the Afrikaners, much less mentioning how the Anglican Church (favored by the British settlers in the region), which had already named 1984 Nobel laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu as its highest-profile leader in the region in 1988, betrayed its White believers.
“Be nice to whites, they need you to rediscover their humanity.” – Desmond Tutu
How Christian of you, Desmond. How has this advice from the former Black Archbishop of the Anglican Church to his kinsmen worked out for Whites?
In hindsight, how much better would things be today for the two branches of the Aryan race in southern Africa — each now, as then, worshipping the same Jewish tribal god and having essentially the same Semitic belief system — had they acted together based on common blood rather than engaged in the fratricidal Anglo-Boer wars? After all, despite their differences, individuals from each branch could form marital unions with one another and produce White children. That should be the bottom-line consideration between members of our race going forward, not which denomination of which Abrahamic creed one “believes” in, nor even which language one speaks. Race preservation is biological! Whites need a belief system that holds to the primacy of race, not the failed universalist creed with the stated goal of putting the top rail on the bottom and the bottom rail on top (as has been accomplished in southern Africa).
A commenter using the screen name “MoneyTalks” over at the Occidental Observer stated:
The “historical enmities that arise” between various peoples originate in the biological necessity to compete for more or less scarce/limited life-sustaining resources; and then successfully take possession of the resource in dispute. These so-called “animal behaviour instincts” are expressed as “enmities” against a resource competitor and are a logical result of the self-interest expressed in depriving a competitor of a biological necessity such as a scarce food.
A deity is presumed to inform any religious persons on how to behave during resource competitions.
And in general, political power sooner or later becomes a life-sustaining resource of control over people.
I had assumed that one who answers to the name “MoneyTalks” would be an economic man (in the Brooks Adams sense), but his spiritual man is showing here.
A religious peoples’ deity doesn’t necessarily have to be a Jewish spook up in the sky, as so many have become accustomed to “believe.” It can be Mother Nature, whose laws of survival here on Earth — the only place our people have ever lived, so far — tells us “how to behave.” She does not reward the foolish among Her creatures, which certainly includes many among our unique White race, that will give up their habitat and resources to a competing race. It’s no matter to Her that Her White race is the prettiest, the smartest, the most inventive, or even the foremost among the builders of civilization — if we Whites do not separate and fight for our survival as a distinct biological entity during the currently spiking human population expansion, and do so quickly, we will become as extinct as the Dodo bird.
Dr. William Pierce explains the kind of men we need in his “Men of Valor“:
One of my favorite authors is Brooks Adams, the 19th-century American economist and historian. In his book The Law of Civilization and Decay Adams put forth the idea that the spiritual climate of a particular period in history favors the survival and proliferation of men with a particular inner orientation, while driving men with a different orientation out of existence, much in the way the physical environment favors or disfavors a particular somatic trait.
Adams divided men roughly into two classes: spiritual man and economic man. The former are what I would call men of valor. Adams saw their epitome in the English yeomanry of the Middle Ages: freeholding farmer-warriors. They flourish during the period when a new civilization is being established.
The other class, economic man, epitomized by the merchants and bureaucrats who later replaced the yeomen, flourishes during the period of a civilization’s decay and collapse. Adams pinpointed democracy as an institution congenial to economic man but especially inimical to the existence of spiritual man.
The entire Western world — not just America — has been spiritually dead since the Second World War. Economic man has swarmed over its corpse, fattening himself on its material remains and multiplying mightily. Physical collapse may not yet be imminent, but the decadence is profound and irreversible. Valor, sorely needed to see us through the coming night and hold us to a worthy purpose until the new dawn, is a memory growing fainter by the decade.
