Deadly Illusions, Part 1
Some nonsense stories are harmless, but others are fatal.

SOME PEOPLE make the mistake of thinking that National Vanguard is a "conservative" organization, because we take many positions in favor of traditional culture and the ideals of Western civilization. Others make the mistake of thinking we're "liberals" because we support preserving the environment and because we have a scientific, biological view of human life.
But we can't be categorized as either "liberal" or "conservative"
because we pay no homage to and have little congruence with the
predetermined and predigested belief systems -- "liberal" or
"conservative" -- that plague our people today. What we are is an "eyes wide open" organization of men and women
who look reality unflinchingly in the eye, see the threats to our
continued existence, and work to change society for the better so that
we can continue to exist and continue to progress.
process of being "eyes wide open" people, of seeing reality as it
really is, we've had to ditch the delusions and illusions that really
are the defining characteristics of so-called liberals and
These illusions are so many that I make no claim that those I will
mention today comprise anywhere near an exhaustive list. The list I
shall enumerate is what you might call my Top Ten Liberal and
Conservative Illusions That Are Killing Us.
10. Number ten on the list of illusions is that America is freer
than any country on Earth. That may have been true once, but it is no
longer true. Where is freedom as the government expands its "rights" to
listen to your every telephone call -- to read your every letter -- to know every single thing you do with every cent you earn? Where is freedom
when you cannot choose who you shall hire, or with whom you will
associate without following the ever-changing dictates of the
"Affirmative Action" bureaucrats?
Where is freedom when college admissions and entry examinations are
always skewed against the young people who are members of the founding
race of this country? Where is freedom when everyone in our major
cities who is not wealthy is compelled to send his little children into
gang-infested multiracial hellholes that are called public schools?
Where is freedom when you work a large part of every year, for your
entire life, to pay for programs and organizations which work against
Where is freedom when invaders can come and take your jobs and your
land and your wealth -- and your government will not protect you?
Protecting us from invasion is, after all, the most basic and
primary thing we're supposed to be getting when we pay our taxes. Where
is our freedom from invasion across our own borders, when our
government seems much more intent on protecting the borders of a
certain Middle Eastern nation?
9. Illusion number nine is the concept that America's founders somehow would have approved of the current anti-White establishment and
that the edicts of that establishment are somehow "constitutional" or
legal. I've covered this one before in great detail, so for now it will
suffice to say that America's founders made it abundantly clear that
they wanted America to be a White nation. Many of them were members or
officers of an organization devoted to the humane repatriation of all
Blacks to Africa. They voted on and approved many laws which had the
effect of guaranteeing that only people of European descent could be
citizens of the United States.
And they set up the federal government so that it had very limited
powers -- in fact, that was the central principle of their system. But
the limitation of powers has been chipped away so much now that the
Congress can do practically anything that a majority of its members
want. Except for a few shards of the Bill of Rights that they haven't
totally abrogated yet, the Constitution is in tatters,
with practically everything the central government does in the United
States -- from anti-White preference programs, to gun laws, to wealth
transfers from Whites to non-Whites and a million other things --
totally in violation of the Constitution's precise words and clear
intent. And the people have, for the most part, supinely accepted this
completely illegal usurpation and cult of the omnipotent legislature.
8. Illusion number eight is the idea -- held by some right-wingers
who oppose the blatantly illegal and unconstitutional usurpations I
just mentioned -- that we can somehow make the government and the
corporations obey the law and stop their destructive acts just by going
to court and boldly stating the truth. How I wish that this was true!
-- but alas, it is just another illusion.
How do you think the demagogues and deceivers managed to build the
power of government and trash the Founders' limitations on that power?
By corrupting the legal profession and the political process, of
course. When you go to court and boldly state that Law X and court
decision Y are blatantly illegal and unconstitutional, you will be
facing a judge whose very career depends upon and whose whole education
is suffused with the falsehoods that prop up the establishment. He will
be deciding on the basis of thousands of interlocking laws and
decisions which are themselves as illegitimate as the ones you are
challenging, and which buttress them 100 per cent. You're going to have
as much luck as Alice in the Court of the Queen of Hearts.
Just making an argument and trusting one of ten thousand corrupt
sitting judges to see it your way -- and then hoping the favorable
decision will be implemented by an army of bureaucrats deeply hostile
to what you're trying to do -- is a losing cause.
What is needed instead is a revolution in the hearts and minds of our people, and a thorough housecleaning of
the halls of power, removing all those who have betrayed their
positions of trust and power. I know that sounds daunting, but it is
the only possible solution.
It will involve decades of work, instilling our values in each new
generation to come, as they become teachers, writers, and men and women
of influence. It will mean the gradual filling up of positions at
universities, teachers' colleges, and elementary schools with people
holding our values. And before any of that can happen, it will involve
the building of explicitly racial institutions for White people that
will not only survive but grow progressively stronger as the
generations pass. We must aim at a counter-media, a counter-culture, a
whole counter-society and counter-establishment that will be able to
step in when the multiracial experiment reaches its inevitable
7. The number seven illusion on our list is the pernicious idea that unfettered capitalism is one of the principles on which America was founded and on which our
success as a nation is based. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Now it is true that allowing people to keep the fruits of their own labor is not only right and just, but also a tremendous spur to excellence.
When the state owns all the means of production, history shows us that
the people lead static lives of chronic shortages and a miserable kind
of sameness. In the old Warsaw Pact countries, one often had to queue
up for basic foodstuffs and clothing, and sometimes there were waiting
lists for things as simple as 4-40 nuts or ball peen hammers. Their
system was not in harmony with human nature. It didn't allow the best
people to rise and better themselves. Those who rose were those best
able to curry favor with the state bureaucrats just above them.
Free enterprise is in better harmony with human nature. People work
willingly and achieve more when they and their families benefit
personally. That makes your nation stronger and more progressive in
almost every way.
But unfettered money-accumulation also brings out some bad aspects
of human nature, which can ultimately subvert your entire society.
Would-be monopolists use their money to corrupt the lawmakers and law-enforcers to stifle the competition. Big business uses its
power over politicians to erect regulatory barriers to prevent small
business from rising and challenging them. And they use their power to
break down any barriers to maximum profits. Right now, borders are
barriers to maximum profits. Anything that allows the money men to use
the cheapest labor, and move products and workers wherever they like,
is what they want. They want to use Chinese labor; they want to use
Mexican labor, and to Hell with any country or any people that gets in
the way of their unfettered accumulation of dollars. Now here's a good
use for government: take all the wealth away from these
globalists and internationalist corporations and put it back in the
hands of those who still feel a bond with -- and act with love and
responsibility toward -- their own people.
6. The sixth illusion which threatens our survival is the idea that
replacing rapacious capitalism with state socialism run by Congress is
the solution to rapacious capitalism.
First of all, isn't it a truism that a Congressman would steal
anything except a red hot stove? Don't we all know and, in our more
philosophical moments, laugh at the rampant dishonesty and criminality
of the current two-party system? Why is taking power away from the guys
in the corporate boardrooms and giving it to the guys in the
Congressional cloakrooms an improvement? Would you trust your child
with the average Congressman or Senator? Would you trust your wallet
with them? How about your valet parking ticket? I didn't think so.
The guys in the boardrooms use influence-peddlers like Jack
Abramoff to get their way almost all the time anyway, the public be
damned. The lobbyists own the Congresscritters, the public be damned
again. And AIPAC is the biggest and dirtiest lobby of them all -- and,
even after AIPAC was caught with the goods stealing U.S. military secrets and funneling them to Israel, the bought politicians still line up like prize poodles at an AKC show to bark at the command of the Israel lobby. You can't get more corrupt than that. And these are the people the lefties and the
socialists want to entrust our health care and our basic industries to?
I don't think so.
There's no way any serious reform will come from the current
system, barring a near-revolutionary situation, which the open border
debacle may yet become. The so-called progressive tax system is a good
example of how the people have been given a yearly fleecing for almost
a century and they still don't get it.
It works like this: The big money men hate competition. And they
hate any threat to their wealth from an angry and increasingly
impoverished public, which might someday use government to wrest it
from them. So they periodically pay their politicians to pretend to
"soak the rich" through "progressive taxation," which means that tax
rates go up the higher your income, and sometimes also that corporate
rates go up, too. What the public never finds out is that these "soak
the rich" plans were written by the money men themselves.
The super-wealthy have their foundations and numerous schemes which
allow them to avoid much of the taxation, and they have the services of
the most expensive accounting and law firms to guide them through the
unbelievable complexities of these purpose-written laws.
The families and businesses that are just rising into the ranks of
the wealthy -- those who own a factory or two, or a successful business
worth a few million but far from the billionaire class -- do not have these advantages. So the "soak the rich" taxes do not actually
soak the super-wealthy at all. Instead they soak the possible
up-and-coming future competitors of the super-wealthy. They ossify the
power structure and keep things "in the right hands." And the suckers
never catch on.
The solution? Go reread the answer to illusion number eight again
-- the in-depth creation of a whole new system to eventually replace
the one that's self-destructing.
I can see that I am going to run out of time before I can complete
my list of illusions that work against us and that the most highly
aware people have discarded. I'll continue this subject next week, when
I'll talk to you about these illusions:
5. Number five on the deadly illusions list is the concept that
using our scientific knowledge to improve ourselves genetically is
4. The fourth item is the idea that democracy is a synonym for freedom, or is even compatible with it.
3. Number three on the list of illusions is the idea that Jews have
suffered in unique and unprecedented ways, different in severity and
moral quality from the sufferings of other peoples.
2. Illusion number two is that the Jews are "God's Chosen People"
1. The number one illusion that is killing us is that the races are
in some sense "equal" and it is of no consequence if one race replaces

Now we have a new tool to communicate with our people. We have our own low-priced high-quality tabloid newspaper -- V. V is unlike any pro-White publication ever seen before. V is not stuffy and theoretical. V is fresh, young, and exciting, like NationalVanguard.org. V has graphic style, done with competence and flair. V can compete with ease with the content, look, and feel of the
young-adult-oriented weekly tabloids that are seen in every major city
these days. When people see V on your flea market table, or at
their local college coffee shop, or in your hand as you distribute it
at a busy intersection on the streets of your community, they will be
drawn to it. And we have had mass quantities of V printed to make the price low, so it can be distributed by our activists in large numbers.
Through July 2006, we are going to have a special discount American Dissident Voices listener price for everyone who would like to distribute this
revolutionary new publication in his home town. We will sell these
newspapers at below cost: 12 cents each in quantities of 100 or more.
Each colorful 16-page tabloid paper has a cover price of $2. They can
easily be sold on the streets for $1 or 50 cents each -- but at 12
cents each they aren't any more expensive than a couple of cheap
Xeroxed flyers -- and they are far more effective -- so they can even
be given away door to door for very little investment.
But V is just a stack of newsprint gathering dust on a shelf unless you take the initiative and get it out there.
That's why we're making this special offer to launch it with a smash
this Summer. Please get a bundle of these papers and sell them or give
them to as many receptive Whites as you can. There's no better way to
introduce them to who we are and what we are trying to do. Imagine what
500 or 1,000 or 2,000 of these papers in your neighborhood could do for
our growth and our success!
Send 12 cents per copy, with a minimum order of 100 copies, by
writing to National Vanguard, Post Office Box 5145, Charlottesville VA
22905, or you can also order through Paypal by sending funds via
along with a note telling us your address and the number of papers you want.
Until next week, this is Kevin Alfred Strom reminding you of the
words of Richard Berkeley Cotten: Freedom is not free; free men are not
equal; and equal men are not free.
