This is Kevin Alfred Strom. Welcome to American Dissident Voices.
It's my sad duty to inform you that my mentor and my friend, William
Pierce, died a few days ago. He and I founded American Dissident Voices
ten and a half years ago, and it was his wish that I continue the
program now that he is no longer able to do so. I humbly accept that
Dr. William Luther Pierce, founder and Chairman of the National
Alliance, died on July 23, 2002, after a battle with cancer lasting less
than one month. Prior to his sudden disability, Dr. Pierce maintained
his 80-hours-per-week schedule of writing, broadcasting, publishing, and
organizing on behalf of people of European descent around the world, a
regimen which he continued almost without interruption for 36 years.
Standing far above his contemporaries, history will rank William Pierce
with Shaw and Nietzsche as a visionary who saw clearly what European Man
could become; and he will also be recognized as a great man of action
who made his ideals concrete in an organization, the National Alliance,
which will continue his Mission beyond his physical life.
Most of today's broadcast will consist of my eulogy to Dr. Pierce, which
I delivered at his memorial service last Saturday. But first I want to
assure every single one of you that Dr. Pierce made provisions for the
continuity of the National Alliance. The Alliance's Board of Directors
was established decades ago as a bulwark against the malicious and the
ambitious who sometimes raise their heads at times like these, and that
Board, chosen personally by Dr. Pierce, is making certain that all
Alliance functions, and any necessary adjustments, are made smoothly and
without interruption in the Alliance's important work.
Eulogy to Dr. William L. Pierce
DR. WILLIAM LUTHER PIERCE, founder and
Chairman of the National Alliance, died on July 23, 2002, after a
battle with cancer lasting less than one month. Prior to his sudden
disability, Dr. Pierce maintained his 80-hours-per-week schedule of
writing, broadcasting, publishing, and organizing on behalf of people
of European descent around the world, a regimen that he continued
almost without interruption for 36 years. Standing far above his
contemporaries, history will rank William Pierce with Shaw and
Nietzsche as a visionary who saw clearly what European Man could become;
and he will also be recognized as a great man of action who made his
ideals concrete in an organization, the National Alliance, now National Vanguard
, which will continue his Mission beyond his physical life.
Sixteen years ago, Dr. William Pierce spoke these words from the Havamal:
Cattle die, kinsmen die, and so must one die oneself. But one thing I know which never dies -- the fame of a dead man's deeds.
The writers of the Edda did not mean fame
in the sense in which that word is now commonly understood. Today, when
the semi-literates of the press utter the word "fame," what they mean
is notoriety -- the notoriety that one gets by marrying or divorcing a
Hollywood starlet or harlot, committing a sensational crime, or
extracting tears and cash from the public by writing or filming a
"best-seller," which will be quickly forgotten when next season's
heart-rending thriller comes along.
"Fame," to the ancients of
our race -- and even to our great-grandparents -- carried with it an
implication of acclaim and high honor and repute for great deeds well
done. And, of course -- and this is crucial -- for the "fame of a dead
man's deeds" to live on and "never die," the dead man's people, his
race, which unlike a man can truly be immortal, must live on and never die.
Ensuring the immortality of our European race was one aspect of William Pierce's purpose -- of William Pierce's deeds.
No man saw more clearly the threat to the
continued existence of our people than did William Pierce. No man
strove more mightily to avert our enemies' genocidal plans than did
William Pierce. No man exhorted our people more compellingly to tear
the blinders from our eyes and to see the world as it really is than
did William Pierce. No man called forth nobility from the White men and
women of our time as did William Pierce. No man hammered the truth home
again and again as did William Pierce: from this, his mountaintop
pulpit, he called out to his people to stop our insane and suicidal
course, to stop worshipping our deadliest enemies, and to take the hand
he offered to help us return once again to what he called the Upward
Racial survival is absolutely necessary, the sine qua non of William Pierce's purpose. Insisting upon European man's right of
survival, and creating a vital and growing organization to bring that
about was enough to make William Pierce some very powerful enemies. And
to his friends and comrades that great goal was enough to bind them in
loyalty for a lifetime. But understanding racial survival, racial
continuity, even racial immortality is just the beginning of an
understanding of William Pierce's purpose -- of William Pierce's deeds.
Dr. Pierce saw the future looming,
dangerous yet infinitely promising, before us. He saw that man, and
even our race, and even the highest among our race are not ends in
themselves but a bridge to something higher.
The Jews like to caricature us by saying
that we are "White supremacists" who believe that we are superior
"Supermen" who therefore deserve to lord it over other peoples and
enslave or kill them at our pleasure. Although that more accurately
describes Ariel Sharon's attitude than it does anyone else's,
unfortunately there are some among us whose racialism is an act of ignorant hubris like that, and who therefore bring great discredit upon a Cause they do not understand.
William Pierce's vision was less of what European man is than of what European man could be in the future.
Yes, by our own standards we are superior
-- the best among us markedly so. The Aryan race, by dint of its
intelligence and creativity and character has managed to drag itself up
to a state of civilization and some degree of scientific understanding
of the universe about us. But what Dr. Pierce could clearly see, and
what the more jingoistic racialists cannot see, is that that state of
civilization, impressive as it may be, and though none has exceeded it,
is but a few inches above the slime of universal savagery. We are a few
inches above the dirt on a journey to the stars. The journey has just begun and the danger of falling back is very great.
European man is, in two senses, very much
like the first amphibians that took their first faltering steps upon
the land and tremblingly and inefficiently (and certainly without
comprehension of what they were doing) took their first breaths of air.
As the amphibians broke through the
previously unpassed boundary of the surface of the sea, so Aryan man
has in the last microsecond of geologic time touched the surface of
another world. I should not need to tell you what implications that has
-- for building a new civilization of the selected few -- our selected few -- on another world, for giving Life itself a second
chance on a new world should circumstances or bad choices render this
one unlivable, and for a thousand other things.
Even more important than colonizing other
worlds in the macrouniverse of space, we also are stepping into a new
world in the microuniverse of our own DNA. Since the time of Gregor
Mendel, every year we have increased our fund of knowledge that will
allow us to accelerate and direct the course of our own evolution.
Since the fall of Europe in 1945, no nation has yet fully grasped the
implications of this knowledge. Today it seems likely that the less
Jew-ridden elites of Asia will embrace this truth and so gain
world-ruling power and superiority in a few generations -- power to
destroy and enslave us if they so choose. Now, more than ever, it is
important for White men and women to regain control of our governments
so that the power of applied eugenics will be ours to wield during the
time that human life is still restricted to this planet. And I should
not need to tell you of the monumental implications of eugenically
increasing our intelligence and understanding -- for avoiding cosmic or
biological catastrophes, for greater understanding of natural processes
and the technological power that can bring, and a thousand thousands
more, most of which our limited minds cannot even imagine at this stage
in our evolution -- just as the first amphibians could not understand
the implications of their first shaky steps upon the Devonian sands
millions of years ago.
Critics with very little insight called
William Pierce an "anti-Semite" and lumped him together with ignorant
provincials, religious fanatics, and conspiracy-obsessed lunatics, of
which he was more nearly the opposite than anyone else.
William Pierce knew that for our people to
achieve their potential greatness, we must regain control of our own
destiny. That means that our ruling elite must be of our people and for our people. And he saw the Jews from a realistic, objective, and
biological perspective. He perceived that, as a race, Jews are unique
-- very strange parasites that replace our race's elite and leadership
Jews deprive our race of what it must have if it is going to survive and prosper: the leadership of the best
among us. In a Jew-led society, the best are suppressed, vilified,
hated, imprisoned, exiled, killed.
As Dr. Pierce pointed out to me almost 20
years ago, what Jews do to other races is not unlike what certain
parasitic ant species do to their hosts.
There is a parasitic ant species whose
queen invades a colony, climbs atop the colony's queen, methodically
gnaws her head off, and thereafter displaces her. The parasitized
workers then feed and raise the immigrant queen's eggs, which mature
and go off to invade other colonies.
Apparently, chemical signals (much like
television or radio signals are to us) prevent the colony's workers
from recognizing the parasite as an invader.
An even more dramatic example of immigrant
parasite "chemical signal" use is the species which, it is theorized,
uses such signals to induce the host workers to murder their own
mother. As Richard Dawkins describes it in The Selfish Gene:
But sawing off heads is a bit of a chore.
Parasites are not accustomed to exerting themselves if they can coerce
a stand-in. My favourite character in Wilson's The Insect Societies is Monomorium santschii.
This species, over evolutionary time, has
lost its worker caste altogether. The host workers do everything for
their parasites, even the most terrible task of all. At the behest of
the invading parasite queen, they actually perform the deed of
murdering their own mother. The usurper doesn't need to use her jaws.
She uses mind-control.
How she does it is a mystery; she probably
employs a chemical, for ant nervous systems are generally highly
attuned to them. If her weapon is indeed chemical, then it is as
insidious a drug as any known to science.
For think what it accomplishes. It floods
the brain of the worker ant, grabs the reins of her muscles, woos her
from deeply ingrained duties and turns her against her own mother. For
ants, matricide is an act of special genetic madness and formidable
indeed must be the drug that drives them to it. In the world of the
extended phenotype, ask not how an animal's behaviour benefits its
genes; ask instead whose genes it is benefiting.
Indeed. One reflects that the Jewish media elite also use "antennae" of a kind to induce us to commit suicide.
Their parasitic, money/pleasure earthbound
existence, the highest goal of which is merely to manipulate their
hosts to provide all the material needs of the ruling Jews, is
anti-Faustian, anti-evolution, and will ultimately result in the final
and irreversible termination of our long journey on the Upward Path
toward greater consciousness and understanding and mastery. Despite its
glitter and its temporal power, the path of the Jews is an empty and
bleak one, an evolutionary dead end whose final stop is extinction and
death. William Pierce knew, with more depth of understanding than any
other man, that they must be removed from their position of power over
us, or all is lost.
He knew that the survival of everything we love, everything we know as noble or beautiful, depends on our victory.
If we lose, every sacrifice made by our
ancestors will be turned into nothing -- like dust blowing across
Ozymandias' dead empire, they and we will be utterly forgotten, and the
universe will know us no more. Only a very few men of vision could see
that those are the stakes -- and because William Pierce lived, we can
see that too. Time will tell if we were worthy of that knowledge.
It is hard for me to believe that William
Pierce is gone. For twenty years he was my teacher. He was my mentor.
He was my friend. Just a few days ago, he was still joking with me as
he made plans for a future he knew he would not see. Just a few months
before that, after my wife and I had dinner at his home, he surprised
us with his vigor and life-force at the age of 68 by sweeping his lady
friend off her feet and kissing her as they laughed and swirled around
the room to the music on her stereo. Dr. Pierce lived -- truly lived --
and gave his all for his people every day for 36 years after his
awakening. I'm glad I was able to know him and learn from him.
Yesterday I received a note from Joseph Pryce, the man who gave us the beautiful music of Call of the Blood, and he said good-bye to Dr. Pierce in these words:
Rest in Peace until you need no longer
rest, o William! Be of Good Cheer, You Are Still What You Have Always
Been, And What You Were You Shall Remain: Our Doctor! And that is going
to be true through all of time for you, and through all earthly ages
that will come for all of us who live within you, we, reflections of
William Pierce, as I have said before, had
his eyes on the stars. I am not a mystic and I do not believe in magic
or the supernatural. I believe we live in a purely material universe,
and the objective study of it should bring us all the awe and wonder we
need, an awe and wonder all the greater for its source being real and not in the prosaic imagination of some con-man or mystery-monger.
But I do not think that I exaggerate when I say that William Pierce is
looking down at us from those stars.
The unimaginably immense universe shines
down upon us, an infinite field of galaxies and the blackness of the
void. In its structure and in the nature of Time itself, operating not according to chance as some would have it, but according to absolute
laws in which one moment is the inevitable and unavoidable father of
the next, there was an inherent pattern that led to the development of
Life from non-living matter. Just as inevitably, consciousness
developed among living beings and, eventually, there arose among
conscious beings our Kind -- our race -- on planet Earth. And among our
Kind, there occasionally arises a Great Man, a man who can see the
Future beckoning, who knows that we face a choice between Infinity and
Nothingness -- a man like William Luther Pierce. That such a man could
arise among us -- that the birth and life of such a man was inherent in
the structure of this universe of stars from the very beginning of Time
-- should give us hope, should banish fear, should bind us together for
the rest of our lives and call us to give those lives so that our
journey to those stars, our ascent upon William Pierce's Upward Path,
