Working for the Future

America is falling to the invaders before our eyes. Our borders are open, and an ostensibly conservative president wants to open them even further. So does his opponent. Our women and children are increasingly raped, beaten, and killed by non-White gangs, demographic trends forecast the doom of our race, our soldiers have become nothing but enforcers for a criminal foreign state -- and yet the people blithely play their ball games, work at making more and better widgets and burgers, listen to the soothing words of the preachers and the newscasters, and generally carry on as if death was not about to tap them and their children on the shoulder.
It has been said by Dr. William Pierce that the brainwashed American booboisie are like lemmings, those little arctic rodents who, when population and environmental pressures build up, flee in a mass unthinking panic, often directly to their doom. A legend was created -- and popularized by a Disney film from the 1950s, White Wilderness -- that the lemmings were deliberately committing suicide. But the truth is that the lemmings aren't purposely killing themselves at all. They simply don't know what they're doing.
This makes Dr. Pierce's analogy even more apt. Lemming numbers build up dramatically after a season or two of prosperity, and, as the lemmings attempt to spread out, sometimes geography constrains them into a small area or narrow channel, where social friction and distress lead to mass panic: some lemmings begin to run in a certain direction, and soon they all are running madly in that direction without any purpose or destination in mind. And then comes the cliff, the river, or the sea. And the end of the lemmings.
What brings these lemmings to their doom is a kind of insanity related to the herd instinct. They're running because the others are running. They're running to get away from each other, but they're all running in the same direction, so they never get away from each other until the fall or the water takes them. Insane.
But the behavior of these lemmings is no more insane than that of the men who continued their card games in the lounges of doomed and sinking ocean liners, or the members of the orchestras who kept playing to entertain them. No more insane than the behavior of the Romans, who, when the barbarians had entered the city and the slaughter had already begun, refused to adjust their behavior accordingly and continued to feast and bathe and indulge themselves with their fellow degenerate nobility until the end finally came. No more insane than the White people who willingly vote to send their children to school with vicious savages, tax themselves to import more savages, build breeding colonies for those savages in their own neighborhoods, and provide lavishly for every need of the savages to the point where something like half their lives are wasted laboring for them, crippling their own lives and the lives of their own children thereby. Yet these lemmings in human form, some of them apparently quite intelligent, continue to do that.
They've gone insane. Even if you leave the all-important issue of race out of it, they are clearly acting against the interests of their own families, their own children. They are mentally ill. They're high on the hooch of the "equality" religion -- and it is a religion -- and, like an alcoholic whose habit is threatened, they will lash out viciously at anyone who tries to cure their addiction.
Even modern-day conservatives, who claim to want to preserve traditional American values, dare not tread on the really crucial issues -- race and Jewish power -- because if they did, they'd be outside the limits of permitted debate, and the attacks of the media masters and their conformist former friends would begin in earnest. They'd have a real fight on their hands, not the play fights in the Democratic/Republican sandbox they're accustomed to. As our Membership Coordinator David Pringle says, the future belongs to those willing to get their hands dirty, to take the real risks and fight the real fight, the only one that really matters, the fight against the Jews who exploit, oppress, and kill our people. Since the conservatives won't fight that fight, and the left, though awakening to some degree, is so mired in the "equality" religion that it cannot fight that fight, it falls to us. Every time I come to a National Alliance meeting I am filled with joy to look at the faces of men and women who understand that fact and are willing to do something about it.
The conservatives are permitted to rant about the Constitution and conspiracies and "traditional values" (so long as they never mention racial integrity, a core value of America's founders) and prayer in the schools and bronze plaques of the Ten Commandments and the size of government and tax rates until they're blue in the face, and no one really cares -- because all these are peripheral issues, and even if each and every one of them were decided for all time in the way favored by the conservatives it wouldn't slow the death of our race and civilization by so much as a six months. The conservative movement, which is more and more openly run by Jews -- like David Horowitz -- and lunatic Christian Zionists, has become nothing more than a business to separate the yokels from their shekels and get them alarmed, running in circles or, better yet, running over the cliff. They're allowed to be distressed by the symptoms of multiracialism, but they can never even look for the real causes of our decline, much less the solutions, which they are not permitted to think about.
The lunacy of the American conservatives reminds me of the story of the policeman who was walking his beat one dark night, when he saw a drunk under a streetlight on his hands and knees, going round and round in circles with his face pressed almost to the ground. The officer called out "Say there, what are you doing?" and the drunk replied "I lost my wallet on Maple Street, in the next block over." That puzzled the policeman, and he asked "If you lost your wallet a block away on Maple Street, why are you looking for it here?" The drunk looked up and calmly explained "I'll never find it on Maple Street -- there's no streetlight there."
The American people, of course, have lost a lot more than their wallets -- they've lost their country and they've lost their minds.
The tragedy of White America can be compared with another, perhaps even more mysterious tragedy: the tragedy of autism. Autism has touched my family directly, so I know something about it. An autistic child will never be normal, even though his intelligence may be high. He cannot communicate well. Some autistic children only repeat what is spoken to them. Some never speak at all. They see the world in a very different way from the rest of us. Patterns and meanings which are obvious to us make no impression on them. Patterns and meanings that we cannot see or which seem trivial to us assume overwhelming importance to them. The spectrum of autism ranges from individuals who seem almost normal but a bit withdrawn, all the way to those who never speak a word, never make eye contact, and spend most of their waking hours in a trance, waving their arms in front of their faces. Parents of an autistic child feel a deep sense of loss, a sense that their son or daughter has in some sense been taken from them.
And "taken" may well be the operative word. There is undoubtedly a genetic link to autism. For one thing, it impacts boys four times as much as girls. For another, parents with an autistic child are at a small but definitely increased risk for having another. There seems to be a link between fathers with high mathematical abilities, like engineers, and autism. All this points in the direction of a genetic explanation.
But there are reasons why a genetic explanation alone will not suffice. The rate of autism has exploded in recent decades. In the last 20 years, the number of children with full-blown autism has increased by 200 to 600 per cent. in every state of the Union. Twenty years is less than a generation. Genes don't change that fast. Natural selection needs many generations to produce that kind of change. The genetic susceptibility to autism may have been there all along -- just like the genetic susceptibility to alcoholism may be there all along, but as long as the potential alcoholic is never exposed to alcohol, you'd never know it. So the potential to develop autism under certain conditions was always there, but the 'certain conditions' were absent. But a few decades ago, something happened -- something changed. Call it "X." Once children were exposed to X, those with a genetic predisposition to be affected by it became autistic. But we don't know what X is. Some theorize it's the changes in our diet, some say it's mercury or other substances in childhood vaccines. But whatever it is, X is real. And the parents of the more than 400,000 autistic children in this country want to know what X is. In a very real sense, they've lost the children they were meant to have, their children have lost the lives they were meant to live, and these parents are full of righteous anger, and they want to know what -- and who -- is responsible.
The plight of our race is very similar, with one exception. Whites are not substantially genetically different than they were just a few generations ago, when our racial integrity was secure and White civilization and power were at their zenith. Just a few decades ago, within my short lifetime, America was over 90 per cent. White; for all practical purposes only Whites could immigrate here; and racial mixing was a punishable crime. And all that has changed now, gone withe wind. But little or none of that change is due to genetic change. We've succumbed to something that's come along in recent decades, something that that has sent our people into a suicidal tailspin that may prove fatal to all of us. This unknown factor has literally made our people mentally ill, insane --  a person who works for the extinction of his own people is mentally ill by any reasonable definition. This unknown factor, this  racial suicide version of "X" may have been something that we've been susceptible to all along, but only became widespread in recent decades. But here's the difference: Unlike the parents of autistic children, we know what X is. The X that has caused this mental breakdown in so many of our people is Jewish power: the toxic Jewish memes of equality and anti-racialism, injected into our people from their first conscious moments of television-watching, imbibed through all their school years (in most public and private schools), heard from the pulpits of many churches, read on almost every page of all major newspapers, and even seen in many non-Jewish publications who 'go with the flow' to avoid trouble. That's X.
And those of us who are working for the future of our people in the National Alliance are still sane. We are the ones who are immune to X -- or who, through a painful process of growth and learning and self-examination and will power, have liberated ourselves from its baleful influence.
We are embarked on a journey which, if we succeed, will be the beginning of a whole new world. The world to come will be built, for the most part, by men and women who are immune or liberated from the mental disease of equalitarianism. But like a family who cares for its autistic child, we still love the lost souls of our race, who, through misplaced altruism and manipulated emotions, now follow the path of death. We, the still-awake, the sane, the immune, have an obligation to guide them to safe harbors once again. And to a cure.
When I did my first major project for the National Alliance in 1984, the compilation of the book The Best of Attack and National Vanguard, I chose for a title page illustration a drawing of an acorn falling to Earth -- the Earth was labeled 'America' and the acorn was labeled 'National Vanguard.' Well, I've got a new image to symbolize our progress in 2004. The acorn has sprouted, and the small tree is beginning to take shape, its three branches making a shape not unlike a Life Rune. And when I see what our National Alliance members are doing -- appearing in public, on television, in print; courageously going into the community and distributing our literature as a kind of sanity-promoting antibiotic; going to neighborhood meetings and speaking out; going to gatherings designed to denigrate or intimidate Whites and making sure that the pro-White point of view is heard; erecting billboards seen by hundreds of thousands; writing articles for us; and a thousand other things; I am given the confidence that, as our chairman has said, the National Alliance has taken on a life of its own. The sprout will grow into a mighty tree, an outspreading oak, under whose branches new temples of science and wisdom will be raised the like of which the world has never seen before, under whose branches our people will be able to reach their full, natural, and healthy development; under whose branches the laughter of White children will echo forever down the infinity of space and time.

I know that subscribers will be pleased when the all-new, full-color National Vanguard magazine number 124 is in their hands. It's at the printers now. Here's some of what you're going to find inside:
'Determination,' my editorial which concludes that relentlessly pursuing our goals will keep us strong as Jewish power inevitably passes its zenith.
'Selling White Genocide': Writer and attorney Hugh Lincoln looks at the too-slick-by-half betrayal of Whites of Luke Visconti and his new variation on the Jesse Jackson corporate shakedown, DiversityInc.
'Geologic Wonders,' a fiction piece by the brilliant Ben Parker, takes us to the Southwest desert, where something wonderful and unexpected is about to happen to two White hikers.
In our lively Forum section,  we offer letters from readers on 'stealth activism,' the trials and triumphs of the National Alliance, the self-limiting nature of intelligence, the reasons why the most advanced race seems to want to cease to exist, and much more.
In our important European news section, News from the Homelands, Mark Cotterill brings us an in-depth look at the gains and losses for racial nationalist and anti-immigration parties in the recent European elections.
In Situation Terminal, But Not Serious the razor-sharp Bob Whitaker hilariously dissects 'The CIA: Junior Keystone Cops'; and 'Whatever Happened to the Communist Conspiracy?'
In the continuing section of unpublished and out-of-print works by one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, Postscripts by Professor Revilo P. Oliver, Dr. Oliver looks at Carl Gustav Jung and the possibility of a new religious faith for the West in 'A Faith for the Future?'; and in 'Only Yesterday: Revilo Oliver Looks at the Roots of White Decline,' Dr. Oliver takes us on a sometimes funny, often moving journey back to his youth, the America of the 1920s, and traces the roots of White America's present decline to the events and beliefs he saw then.
'Holocaust Commemoration, Part I,'  by Irmin Vinson, is much more than a deep analysis of the secular religion, driven by Jewish ethnocentrism, that is growing up around the 'Holocaust.' It is a teaching tool that can open the minds of the unconvinced to the stark reality of the Jewish supremacism that is misruling our nation.
Even the cover of National Vanguard No. 124 is a keeper -- you might want to buy an extra copy just to frame it. Victory Day, an original painting by Alfred Sundvall, shows a young woman backed by a majestic memorial on a hill, flanked by Life Rune flags, marching forward with determination. Mr. Sundvall is the same artist who painted Call of the Blood, used as the cover art for the Dresden music CD of the same name.
...and there's more, too, in the new National Vanguard magazine!
And if you've been thinking about subscribing, now is the time to do it: Rising printing costs will probably make it necessary for us to raise our subscription prices very soon.
Bulk copies of the magazine -- 20 or more -- are also available at up to 50 per cent. off the cover price of $4 each. Many of our members and supporters sell these at flea markets, cultural events, and quite a number even distribute them regularly to newsstands at a tidy profit. Just click on the image of the magazine on our Web sites to get subscription details.
