Time and Money:
A Speech at the Phoenix Eurofest

MR. CURNOW, Mr. Berg, ladies and gentlemen. It's an honor and a joy to be here and to speak with you today.
Some time ago a Jew went up to a ticket window at Grand Central
Station and told the ticket agent "I want a ticket for Springfield."
The agent replied "Which Springfield? Springfield, Illinois --
Springfield, Missouri -- Springfield, Massachusetts -- or Springfield,
Ohio?" The Jew paused and thought for a moment, and then asked "Which
one is the cheapest, Mister?"
When Mr. Curnow called to ask me to speak here in Phoenix, he
really didn't make it clear what he wanted me to speak about. He didn't
say, "Kevin, I want you to speak on 'Why Jews Aren't White' or 'Why Do
So Many White People Pretend to be Indians?' or 'How Did We Get Stuck
With That Slopehead in the White House?' or 'Why Starting World War 3
in Iran is a Really Bad Idea.'" He didn't even suggest that I
ask the question 'What Precisely are Blacks and Mexicans Good For?'.
No, Mr. Curnow just left it open. I could hold forth on anything I
chose, and I'd get to see the city and enjoy the delights of this
European Festival. How could I refuse?
So I thought about the
old adage that you can never be too young, too beautiful, or too rich
-- and, considering that we as White people have beauty all sewn up,
that leaves the subjects of 'too young' (which refers to time, really)
and 'too rich' (which refers to money). So I thought I'd devote my talk
tonight to time and money.
Money is on people's minds these days. Bankruptcies are higher than
ever before -- and not just personal bankruptcies, either -- local
business, major airlines, and other large corporations are increasingly
facing the wall, too. As war- and storm-induced oil price spikes hammer
all areas of the economy and high-paying jobs for White working people
are literally gone with the wind, even the most dim Bush supporters are
starting to wish we still had that $200 billion we spent on defending
Israel in the Middle East. Well, there's nothing like the coming
Depression II to clarify White people's thinking. At least I hope so,
because the Depression is coming, clarification or not.
About 2,000 years ago the Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, in
essence, that the man who would never think of borrowing -- much less
taking -- money from you, thinks nothing at all of presuming to take
your time. But while it is possible for money to be paid back, time can never be. Once it is gone, it is gone forever, and however we spent
the day, whether we worked toward a worthy goal or expanded our mind,
or whether we wasted the day on sordid entertainment or unworthy
companions, we are all nevertheless one day closer to the time when we
will either face oblivion, or finally learn the truth about mystery of
consciousness which we can never know while we live. Every minute that
passes, we are one minute closer to death. Time advances inexorably and
never gives a respite. Young or old, we cannot control the rate at
which we spend it -- but we can control what we spend it on. I'm here
to tell you today that we'd better start spending a lot more of it on
saving ourselves as race, or all is lost.
And money? What is it, really? It's what everybody wants more of --
so he can buy more things and have others work for him. It's a symbolic
representation of wealth, as I discussed last year on American Dissident Voices.
There was a time when a dollar (or a pound or a franc or whatever)
actually represented a fixed amount of precious metal, and so-called
"paper money" was really only a promise to pay real money. Old paper
currency even has printed on it "The United States of America will pay
to the bearer on demand twenty dollars," so you sure as hell knew that
the paper itself was not twenty dollars. Those days are long gone, and
the dollar today is just words on a piece of paper, or digital bits
recorded on a bank's hard drive somewhere. It has no more intrinsic
value than trading stamps or grocery store coupons.
What makes grocery store coupons have any value at all? It's the
promise of the store to give you something you value when you trade
them in. The promise is what makes them good. If you and others believe
in the promise and want the goods that are promised, you could even use
them as a medium of exchange and a store of value, just like you use
And dollars are based on a promise, too, though it's really sort of
a forced promise. The government promises that they'll demand money
from you from time to time in the form of taxes -- and they further
promise to accept dollars as payment. So you know the dollars are good
for paying that kind of debt, and you know that sooner or later you'll
need some of them when the tax man comes calling.
And the government requires us to accept dollars in payment of any
debts owed us. That's what legal tender laws are all about. So, in
effect, the law forces us all to promise that we will accept
dollars -- meaning, really, that we will perform services or trade
valuable things for them. Since we know that everyone has to accept
them, that forced promise to accept them makes them good in roughly the
same way as the grocery coupons -- but on a much larger scale and in a
much more coercive way.
You might think that you can accept other things in payment, but
they've got you there, too. Sure, you can accept payment in francs or
rubles or water buffalo or gold bricks -- but you can't just say,
"Well, I traded my services as a racial agitator for 15 CDs and an
autographed picture of Vladimir Putin, even trade." No, sorry -- the
law requires you to enter these on your books in terms of their current
dollar value as if you had received the equivalent number of dollars
anyway. So they've locked you, as best they can, into the dollar and
into the system where they get their cut. As we all know.
This wouldn't be so bad if the dollar was a real and honest measure
of value. If you could be sure that the dollars you saved to retire on
would buy the same amount of housing and food and heating oil and
clothing -- even roughly the same amount -- when you did get around to retiring, then maybe their coercive system would at least
be honest. But it's not honest. If it were honest, then the dollar
would be like the foot or the inch or the mile or the ounce, an
unvarying measure. A ruler made in 2005 is 12 inches long, exactly the
same length as one made in 1913. But a dollar in 2005 will only buy
what 2 cents would buy in 1913. As Edgar Steele and other commentators
have pointed out on numerous occasions, prior to 1913, the value of the
dollar had remained almost perfectly stable for over a century. Then
the Congress gave control of the currency over to a quasi-public
consortium of private banks called the Federal Reserve. One of the
ostensible purposes of this act was to -- get this -- "stabilize the
value of the dollar."
The dollar which was once a relatively stable store of value -- a
device, crystallized time as it were, to store the surplus production
of hard and creative workers so they and their children could enjoy the
fruits of their labors in the future. But over the last century the
dollar has become a device for stealing from the trusting, for 98 per
cent. of its value has evaporated into the pockets of those who were in
the know ever since this group of criminals was given the power to
"stabilize" it. In just the last 20 years, fully half of whatever value it still had in 1985 has disappeared.
So the value the dollar has is that we all have to work for it. We
all have to give whatever it is we have to give in exchange for it --
usually damned little of it. And that's where time intersects with
money in the evil fun house called modern Western society. For we trade
our time for money. Money is crystallized time. The time you spent in
making more than what you needed is converted into money so you and
your family can enjoy it later -- maybe even after you are dead it can
help your great-great-grandchildren, or it can help fund a cause that
you believe in. That's crystallized time, the time that makes up your
life, the only time you will ever have. Even though money-getting can
be crass and dishonest sometimes, when you look at it as the
crystallized time of honest men and women, you can see that it really
is a sacred thing. A thing of trust and honor, and not to be taken by
tricks or deceit.
When you're smart the way White people are smart, you produce more than you consume. You produce a lot more than you consume. You develop things like scientific agriculture,
mass production, electronic communication and information technology,
heating and air conditioning, and modern plumbing and sanitation
systems, and one hundred thousand other wonderful things. And then some
of these things make you even more productive. You build up surpluses
that can be traded for things you want -- things that other smart and
productive people have produced. But it's cumbersome to trade hogsheads
of wine for automobiles directly, so a medium of exchange that
everybody agrees upon is a real convenience. Hence money.
But with the money system we have now, the value of money can be
adjusted, and the powers that be almost continually adjust its value
downward. That way the value of the surplus we have saved is constantly
drained off, leaving us far poorer than we would otherwise be, and
forcing us to constantly trade our labor of today for the necessities
of today, so we can never truly build up the store of wealth that we
and our ancestors have earned. They stay in their counting houses and
we stay on the treadmill -- where we "belong." That tends to perpetuate
the rule of those in power now -- and prevent the rise of many newcomers to independent wealth, who might upset the current power structure.
But the wealth of White Americans isn't being stolen only by manipulation of the currency.
Our "free trade" policies allow the importation of non-White labor
to undersell and put White Americans out of work. They also allow
corporations to relocate their factories to Mexico or China, with the
result once again that White Americans are put out of work. That's bad
enough, but what is less well known are two hidden effects of these
policies. As I said a few months ago on this program:
[T]he cutthroat world of finance capitalism has discovered a way to
unearned billions by marking up the products of Chinese and other Third
World slave laborers by several hundred per cent. and vending them in
K-mart and Wal-mart and the like to those of you who still have jobs.
...[O]ur trade deficit with the non-White world is staggering and
growing more out of control every day. A trade deficit means that, just
as in the case with 'foreign aid' and giveaway loan programs, huge
numbers of dollars are building up in Asian and other coffers, and they
will naturally use those dollars to employ Americans to provide them
with goods and services -- and land. The trade deficit just keeps
hitting record after record, and in April it reached another one -- $48
billion. ...And the System that misrules America has been letting this
go on for decades. How much wealth has been transferred away from our
people in this manner? -- it approaches the incalculable.
Some will argue that the only use for dollars is to buy American
goods and services, so therefore all this trade does is help Americans
sell goods that American workers are paid to produce. But that's a
facile and deceptive explanation. All those dollars were in America to
begin with. Transferring them to Israel or China or wherever doesn't
make them buy any more than they would have otherwise. That's just
paper shuffling that produces nothing. And no matter how you shuffle
the paper, services and real physical goods are transferred over there,
the lives of our people are being spent in service to the Third World, and they can never get those minutes and years back again.
What's really happening here is that, in exchange for cheap,
ephemeral consumer items -- or pretty good tools and autos -- all of
which we are perfectly capable of making right here in America and the
West, Americans now have to honor these dollar claims and work an
ever-increasing percentage of their lives providing what these foreign
[That is the first hidden effect of free trade, one that no one
talks about. And here is the second: As non-Whites replace us here in
America], as our workforce darkens and its creativity and productivity
drop apace, these foreign creditors will find their dollars are better
spent on buying up American land and businesses instead of just buying
our products. And do you think either a Republican or Democrat regime
will do anything to protect Americans as that starts to happen more and
more? No, America is for sale and on sale cheap, and almost
inconceivable amounts of American wealth are going to meeting the
demands of the Third World instead of building up America, repairing
our infrastructure, helping our old folks, ensuring an excellent future
for our children. The System and the Jewish media have made our people
so sick that some of us couldn't even define "us" or "our children"
anymore and think that adopting Chinese orphans is a "good" use for
their precious lives.
Well, what kind of future does that promise for your children and
grandchildren, Mr. and Mrs. White America? It promises doom, that's
what. It promises a future where the remaining productivity and
creativity of Whites are harnessed to make a few more billions for the
walled-and-gated self-styled elite of disloyal Whites and ethnocentric
Jews, with more billions going to the Third World through "free trade"
and aid programs, to say nothing of the hundreds of billions spent and
yet to be spent on the insane war plans of the Jewish supremacists who
now command the Bush administration. And as America becomes less and
less White and more and more of a Third World feeding and breeding
zone, the comfort and safety that the tremendous productivity of Whites
have made for us in North America will start to disappear, along with
our liberties. Our children will be serfs in the land of their
I used to say that America was descending toward a future like
Calcutta, or Mexico City, or Haiti. But that was ten years ago. I must
update my phraseology and say that the future our children face is an
America like New Orleans -- rapidly declining in every way, corrupt,
savage, bestial, and only brought under a semblance of control by the
police state powers of a virtual military dictatorship.
But there is a better way. You all know what that way is. It is to realize, as a people, as a society, that what we are
genetically is the basis of all value, all wealth, all morality, and
all that is good in this world. It is to realize that we are White
people, Europeans, representatives and repositories of the gene
patterns which produced the highest culture and the most exalted
philosophies and sublime beauty the world has ever seen -- with the
potential to create a thousand times more than we have so far created,
as we continue the pattern that exploded so brightly, like a supernova,
in the far southeastern corner of Europe two and half thousand years
It is to realize that this civilization we have crafted with our
minds and our hard labor and our blood -- this land -- this wealth that
we have created -- this science and this art -- are for our people alone, for our children and their descendants alone
and we shall not labor for others, nor give them our substance, nor let
them into our gates any longer. Our gates are forever closed to them,
not out of hatred for them, but out of love for the future that we
alone -- and I mean alone
in both senses of the word -- can bring into existence.
Bringing about this revolutionary change in the thinking of our
people is the only task worth striving for in these dark days. It is
the task of National Vanguard.
This is the task to which we must devote our time (what is left of
it) and our money (what is left of it). The hour is very late.
We must not follow the example of the decadent Romans in the latter
days of the Empire, who, hearing that the barbarians were at the gates
of the city, refused to believe they were in any real danger. "Are not
our larders still full of bread and wine; are not the dancing girls
still beautiful; is not the Emperor protecting us?" they would ask, as
they retired to a hillside villa to continue their partying and
debauchery; while stern and determined men crashed through their gates,
cut their way through Rome's polyglot mercenaries -- and brought down
their entire world.
We must be sterner, more determined, and more dedicated than our enemies.
Some of us can give only of our time -- some of us can only give
money -- some of us can give both. But whatever our personal situation
may be, there is no better purpose for our lives than doing whatever it
takes to bring about a race-based White society. With that goal always
in mind, let us move forward through the rest of our lives.
* * * * * *
We can have a clean, orderly, progressive, safe, and incomparably richer and more beautiful nation if it becomes a proud White nation again.
To do that we must begin by restoring White community and White
racial consciousness among our people. We at National Vanguard are
doing that by building world-beating new media for Whites and by
getting out on the street and meeting our neighbors and showing them
what we're all about.
We're going to help our people. We're going to educate our people.
We're going to come up with creative ways to awaken our people. We're
going to create publications that will be like nothing ever seen before
in the cause of White awakening. We're going to do what it takes.
Be a part of what we're doing. Join National Vanguard today. For
