OVER 400 YEARS ago, the French philosopher Étienne de la Boétie
told us "Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not
ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply
that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great
Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight
and break into pieces." There are many lessons for us as a people --
and as racially conscious White activists -- in la Boétie's words.
On last week's program I spoke with David Duke about the political
changes that resulted from a change in consciousness in eastern Europe.
One day, the Communist bosses controlled the press, controlled the
secret police, controlled the military, and exiled, imprisoned,
tortured, or killed any who dared to oppose them.
But when the people who provided the support for
that system -- the people who were productive and paid the taxes, who
manned the press rooms and the scientific laboratories and the
universities and the machines that kept the economy going -- when these
White people realized that their leaders were corrupt, when they
realized that the system they were supporting was an alien system
imposed on them through lies and trickery and force, when they realized
that there was a better way, the Communist bosses found themselves
overthrown almost the very next day.

The same thing can happen to the Jewish supremacist bosses. The same thing will happen to the Jewish supremacist bosses if we act responsibly.
Sometimes there was violence when these Communist regimes were
overthrown -- but often there was not. The change in consciousness made
the revolution, and the power that propped up the illegitimate rulers
evaporated almost instantly. Their misrule was simply no longer
tenable. No one believed in them anymore. No one believed anything they
said. And a new and healthier, more natural, order emerged -- one
better suited to the nature and needs of the people.
We can make a similar revolution in the hearts and minds of White
Americans, too. We can make a similar revolution in consciousness.
That's what the men and women of National Vanguard have resolved to do.
We've already seen that revolutionary awakening happen in ourselves, in
many of our friends and family members, and in people we've met through
our outreach activities. So we know it's real. We've seen it happen.
And we've seen a swift response and reorganization to clean out our
own ranks and continue on the upward path when the rogue executives in
Hillsboro had corrupted our racial message with immorality and
I'm proud of the men and women who heeded the call so swiftly and
so well, and National Vanguard is well on its way to success. We've
received hundreds of letters of support and the membership applications
are pouring in. We've purchased the software and hardware necessary for
managing our membership records, and trusted members are working on a
plan for the production of printed materials of high quality and low
price for mass distribution. The Board of Directors has contacted
potential new directors and will be meeting soon to create an expanded
and responsive board. We're determined to win your trust, the trust of
those who are already awakened and ready for the task ahead -- and also
the trust of the intelligent, perceptive minority of White men and
women who are our real target audience: the independent-thinking folks
who set the trends that others follow, and who make the wheels of

This letter, from Bob I. in California is typical of those that we've been receiving here at National Vanguard:
"I'm with you and National Vanguard, Kevin! Please place me on your
e-mail list. I've been active in Sacramento with my brothers and
sisters for nearly five years now! There is MUCH work to do, as I know
you know. Keep up the great, important, and necessary work. I still
think very highly of those few activists in my area who haven't yet
joined us, and I'll stay in touch in hopes that they will soon join us,
as I believe they will. I especially enjoyed your interview with April
Gaede. Her girls [the 12-year-old twins who form the singing group
Prussian Blue] are precious and obviously a big part of our future. I
also have twin girls, both married to excellent White men and each with
a son now. They are becoming more and more racially aware. I am trying
to diligently teach them our values. I am honored, proud, and greatly
looking forward to our future success and advancement. I'll be working
ever harder for our Cause."
Just as important are the new people writing in response to our
outreach efforts and news articles. Jim T. writes via the Internet:
"By God, the lack of coverage of the Lowenstein sex-slave ring is a
huge indicator that the Jewish media are, indeed, what you say they
are. The evidence, for me, keeps piling up. I have been on a three-year
quest to find out the reasons for the wimpiness, self-debasement, and
lack of affirmation of the modern White male. Your site is a big help."
[ http://nationalvanguard.org/story.php?id=5057 ]
And a young man still in school, Erick B., writes:
"I just wanted to tell you at National Vanguard that I deeply
admire and respect all of you and your work. It is so commendable --
all of the time and effort you spend for the cause. Such devotion to
our European race is viewed, by me, as honorable in the highest
possible meaning of the term. I too act, in small ways at least, to
empower our cause -- such as by spreading awareness to my peers and
putting up flyers in my school, but nothing matches the devotion and
determination shown by everyone at National Vanguard. I am planning on
getting involved in politics so I can voice our message, the righteous
truth, publicly. Nothing matters more in my life than my race and
family, and I do as much as I can to spread our great message. No reply
needed, I just wanted to let you know that there is another youth out
there who stands at your side and adds to our ranks. Love - Honor -
Pride - Strength - Unity; what I live by and preach. I will never let
my brothers and sisters fall. Thank you for all that you have done."
Some letters, while supportive of what we are doing, express dismay
at losing the buildings, land, and inventory at Hillsboro, since those
things represent many years of business activity, hard labor, and
financial contributions -- and they are now in the hands of the
unworthy. I share your feelings.
I was there in 1985. I stood then with William Pierce and with men
like Robert Pate and many others, literally digging the ditches by hand
which carried the utility wires and water pipes for the offices and
homes that were being built. I know that many tens of thousands of
dollars were expended to fund our operations there. To make an analogy:
Our labor and our gifts were the fuel that powered our race's
spacecraft toward the stars.
And while Dr. Pierce was at the helm, our White Zion was
efficiently run -- every dollar, every hour, served to advance us
further on our mission. Unlike the recent mismanagement -- which
brought in contractors at a premium price to finish a building used
only once or twice a year, at a cost of hundreds of thousands of
dollars -- Dr. Pierce used volunteers and spare-time labor to lower the
average cost of everything he did.
Current and recent staffers and members who saw what was going on
in Hillsboro in recent months can tell horror stories of padded
accounts, wasted funds, high salaries for those who did little good and
much harm, and very questionable deals. And I know that some of that
inventory is worth very little in terms of our true message, and some
of it is positively harmful. In the former category are hobbyist
trinkets, and in the latter are the incompetently done magazines and
catalogues and some of the music CDs that the Executive Committee
successfully forced out of public view before our reform efforts were
terminated by the rogue executives -- one CD in particular, but there
were others almost as bad, included horrifying "art" depicting a
woman's genitals, bloody and ripped from her body, and nailed to a
cross. It is well that we are separated from that sort of thing.

But spending too much time dwelling on all of that is the
equivalent of the Apollo astronauts stalling in space and bemoaning the
fact that their jettisoned booster stage is breaking up and falling
back to Earth.
The important thing is the ascent, the mission. Everything else is
just a tool, just a stage through which we travel on our journey to our
Just as the Gemini project gave way to the Apollo program in our
exploration of space, so Dr. Pierce's mission found its diverse
vehicles, from the John Birch meetings he once attended, to Youth for
Wallace, to the National Youth Alliance -- and ultimately to National
Vanguard, with many stages in between.

Even the massive power of the Saturn V rocket was just a stage in
propelling the questing Apollo astronauts to their goal. Like the
Saturn V that lifted Apollo 11 to the edge of space but then fell down
burning into the atmosphere, our first White Zion has fulfilled its
mission. It did get us to the edge of space, to the point where our
crew is poised to begin the real journey, the 99% of the journey that
lies between the trailing edge of Earth's atmosphere and the surface of
another world. We, the vanguard of our people, have finally broken free
into the realm of the stars.
The efforts to build our booster rocket were not wasted. Those who
supported its construction and its takeoff did what was right -- and
the result is a community of White men, White women, and White families
with the knowledge and the will to continue that mission forever.
Where should you stand? On the nearly empty and rapidly falling
Saturn V, merely because it took us this far? Or as part of the
dedicated crew of a super-Apollo with its nosecone unerringly aimed at
a White renaissance in a new White civilization of the future?
If there was graft and mismanagement in White Zion's final days,
those directly involved should pay the price. And I believe that the
principals who were deceived and victimized should take whatever action
is right and just in that matter. But the faithful members, the
dedicated activists, and others who have joined us have our eyes on
higher things. We must press forward in our mission. And that is
exactly what the members of National Vanguard are doing.
"Vanguard" is a particularly apt name -- for in all his strivings
for his people, Dr. Pierce was part of an elite, a vanguard in the true
meaning of the word. Webster's dictionary tells us that a vanguard is
the forefront, the front point of any action or movement.
It can be lonely in the front, because in any age the great masses
of the people are conservative in the bad sense of the word. Love them
as we may -- love them as we should -- the majority of our folk,
whatever their political persuasions, are still just barely catching up
to the advanced ideas of the 18th and 19th centuries like biological
evolution and the scientific method, while they are simultaneously
mired in many of the more primitive ideas of ages past -- like ancient
superstitions (sometimes brought up to date by neocon con men),
egalitarianism, and the false religion of equality. Our goal is to
reach the freethinking and intelligent minority that is capable of
making history. If we succeed in forming a vanguard of the best and
brightest, in time the rest of the race will inevitably follow.
But this isn't a popularity contest. This isn't "democracy" in
action, where the most persuasive marketing men make a killing by
selling a carefully-coiffed candidate or selling something else equally
useless. If it were, we would be better off selling snack foods or pain
killers or weight-loss pills or sleazy sex magazines, because those
things are currently a lot more popular than racial destiny or
all-encompassing social change. If all we were interested in was
becoming more popular among average White folks, then we would remove
all references to Jewish power or White living space or eugenics or
evolution from our outreach. By becoming just another "stop illegal
immigration" group or "we want equal rights" group, we'd get more
members. We'd avoid criticizing the average Joe's sacred cows. We'd
absolve him of making any difficult choices or facing up to any
daunting responsibilities. But we'd fail in our mission. We'd have no
basis for excluding Jews from our ranks, for example, and no way of
preventing them from rising and conspiring and changing our
organization from the inside, and corrupting us just as they have
corrupted the once pro-White political parties and government in this
country. We'd have no sound fundamental basis for excluding Christian
Zionists from our ranks and others with similar agendas that would
spell the death of our Cause. We'd have no way to prevent the
continuous mutation of our aims and goals, as the fickle mob is prodded
by the media masters to be excited about this or that. We'd become just
like the Republicans or Democrats, in other words. We'd be corrupted.
That must never happen. For us there is a different and harder path --
making our own media and reaching and convincing the people who really
It's true that we've made tactical errors in the past. I've said
many times on this program that we should never play into the Jewish
stereotypes of the crazed genocidal hater with an unhealthy fascination
with weapons and violence, and a cultish affection for the trappings of
past regimes as seen through the distorting lens of Hollywood. That's
just guaranteed to attract the wrong sort of person and repel the right
sort of person.
We are the healthy people, the sane people, the reasonable and
capable and responsible people. We are motivated by the highest and
purest love imaginable. Our Cause is the most noble in all of human
history. And we are going to bring forth the most intelligent,
accomplished, and beautiful generations of White children ever seen --
as we build a new civilization, greater than any that has come before.
Everything we do, every word we utter, should radiate those images and
ideals to all who see and hear us.
Presenting ourselves in this new and more truthful manner does not
mean that our principles are "softened" or "compromised." Far from it.
The opposite is true.
My mentor Dr. William Pierce had radical views in the sense
that radical means "getting to the root of things." He wanted his
vanguard, his elite, to be thoroughly fundamental in its understanding
of the world. Although he almost always phrased things in a way that
didn't drive away good people with conventional views (he wanted
suburban liberals and fundamental Baptists and elderly conservatives
and rebellious youth to stay around long enough to learn the lessons he
was trying to teach), he would never pretend to believe what he didn't
believe. He insisted that our world view is a biological world view and that who we are is defined by genes and evolution, not by language or geography or ancient scrolls.
By presenting the biological world view that great thinkers like
William Pierce have articulated, and presenting it in a new way,
unfettered by past errors or incompetence or unconscious acceptance of
anti-White stereotypes, we can make the best White men, the best White
women, and the best White youth understand what is really happening and
who they really are.
And that is the key to everything. Then we can build our vanguard
into a new leadership stratum, and a new era of freedom, art, science,
and high civilization will ensue.
Let me return to the thought that began this program, by Étienne de la Boétie:
"Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask
that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply
that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great
Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight
and break into pieces."
This is what we must do. And we must have a long-term plan that
will remain operative for many decades in order to succeed. We must
reach the elite -- and by that I mean the capable and intelligent and
freethinking from every walk of life -- who set the trends and make
Just as the rediscovery of Classical learning and culture by a
small elite during the Renaissance eventually remade the Western world
and brought into being our universe-shaking science and technology, so
too shall our new elite -- as it rediscovers truths about race hidden
from us by the Jewish supremacists, and as it discovers new truths,
principles, and strategies of its own -- remake the world into a fit
place for future White generations.
Just a few days ago I took one of my children to visit Monticello,
Thomas Jefferson's home, located just a few miles from Charlottesville.
Jefferson was a brilliant man and, like most of the founding fathers,
he was also a racial separatist..
Jefferson wanted racial separation on a continental scale, and he
was the author of a Virginia statute that made racial mixture a serious

Like la Boétie, Jefferson also spoke about the tendency of people
to suffer under bad leadership, when he said in the Declaration of
Independence: "... all experience hath shown, that mankind are more
disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right
themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed."
Jefferson and his fellow patriots built a vanguard of White people
who would no longer suffer tyranny, whose questing souls found anything
but real freedom and true self-determination to be intolerable. They
did abolish the old forms and create anew. With will and persistence,
we can do the same. I hope you'll join us.
