A Primer Text
“Like plants, men cannot exist without roots.” – Dominique Venner, The Shock of History
Make no mistake, Western Civilization is in its death throes, the 11th hour, as it were. Take your eyes off of your television or your smartphone for a moment and train them on the world today. Everywhere Western Civilization exists you will see that it is in the stages of rapid decay and it is sheer vanity and stupidity to deny it. The United States is being overrun by hordes of non-White immigrants, legal and illegal, fundamentally altering its demographic landscape in key cities, and driving a stake through the heart of its culture. The whole of Northern and Western Europe is similarly being flooded with Muslim immigrants who are gaining more influence as their numbers grow and the elected leaders refuse to do anything about it. The Great Replacement is well underway.
The fall of Western Civilization has nothing to do with any failings of traditional Western Culture in and of itself. Instead, it has everything to do with an epidemic of apathy among its creators, innovators – the Culture Bearing Stratum, and former maintainers. We have forgotten who we are. We have lost our connection to our identity and correspondingly our culture. As a result, our people are dying. It is not solely the fault of politicians, bureaucrats, or any economic system as any of them can be overthrown at any given time. It is our fault. We as a people have allowed this to happen and we are suffering the consequences.
Because of the indifference of our people toward their own survival combined with government-sanctioned systematic displacement, subsumption via miscegenation, transracial adoption, and a below-replacement-level birth rate, we are disappearing at a rate that is soon to be irreversible. What’s worse is we, as the living representatives of our people, have allowed it to happen and when we are gone or when we have been sufficiently displaced, Western Civilization will vanish along with us. The question for those that stand outside of this seemingly willed destruction is what can we do about it? How do we as a people survive the inevitable collapse of our civilization?
The way to survive the collapse is to restore our identity as a race. A practical restoration of our racial identity will foster solidarity among our people and embolden them by opening their eyes not only to the fact that they belong to a specific human population – and by virtue of that fact comes an obligation to protect it – but also to the impending annihilation of it and ultimately the dire consequences thereof. We cannot hope to survive or to restore our identity and some semblance of Western Culture without properly educating ourselves on what racial identity is and we cannot do that without first coming to the realization that race is real.
Scores of articles, essays, and books have been published that aim to reach out to Whites in general in an attempt to arouse them to the reality of their demise. Since it is outside of the scope of this article to provide a comprehensive knowledge base for this education, it would be wise for you, the reader, to seek out these works and educate yourself on your history, your present, and your future.
What I offer in this brief work is a common sense, succinct refutation of the notion of race as a social construct, demonstrable evidence that White Genocide is real, and a reassuring assertion that we can survive, or even potentially reverse, the coming collapse.
First, we must begin by realizing that race is indeed a biological reality and not the social construct that we have been told it is. We can do this scientifically.
To Deny Race is to Deny Evolution
For all intents and purposes, modern science has rendered arguments against the theory of evolution null and void. One would be extremely hard pressed to find any legitimate biologist that does not embrace evolution by natural selection. Nevertheless, there remains an outward stance of egalitarianism within the scientific community, even amongst geneticists in what can only be described as a desperate attempt to cover up the truth of race and its biological foundations. Due to their notoriety and prestige as scientists, their proclamations are taken as holy writ.
Evolution is defined as the gradual change in the inherited traits of biological populations over successive generations through genetic transmission, i.e. the gradual change of the physical characteristics of organisms over time. The theory of evolution by natural selection has been proven many times over by the fossil record, the universal genetic code, bacterial resistance to antibiotics, and more.
After mapping the human genome scientists confirmed that humans do indeed have a common ancestor, but that seems to be where they want to end the conversation. Only a select few have come out to speak what is deemed an “inconvenient truth.” This begs the question, why is it so inconvenient for scientists, people who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of knowledge and truth, to admit that human evolution has guided the formation of the different races of mankind and its multitude of differing phenotypic traits?
James Watson, an American molecular biologist and geneticist and co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, was once the head of the Human Genome Project. Well aware of the continuity of human evolution over time and well within the bounds of reason and the theory of evolution, he wrote in his 2007 book Avoid Boring People and Other Lessons from a Life in Science that
“… there is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so.”
Essentially Dr. Watson is calling out the scientific community on the ontological fallacy of egalitarianism given that it has no scientific basis in the reality of evolution. The reality is that given the vast geographical separation of human populations it is completely unscientific to assume that natural selection has not had an effect on human intelligence. This logic can, and should, be applied to other physical characteristics besides intelligence, such as skeletal structure, eye shape and color, skin color and thickness, hair texture and color, height, weight, strength, resistance to disease, etc.
Nicholas Wade confirms Dr. Watson’s statement regarding human evolution and DNA in his book The Twists and Turns of History,
“New analyses of the human genome establish that human evolution has been recent, copious and regional. Biologists scanning the genome for evidence of natural selection have detected signals of many genes that have been favored by natural selection in the recent evolutionary past. No less than 14% of the human genome, according to one estimate, has changed under this recent evolutionary pressure.”
Before writing his book, Nicholas Wade, a former staff writer for the Science Times section of the New York Times, published an article on March 12, 2006. In it he makes it quite clear that human evolution has not stalled and continues to this very day.
“In a study of East Asians, Europeans and Africans, Dr. Pritchard and his colleagues found 700 regions of the genome where genes appear to have been reshaped by natural selection in recent times. In East Asians, the average date of these selection events is 6,600 years ago.Many of the reshaped genes are involved in taste, smell or digestion, suggesting that East Asians experienced some wrenching change in diet. Since the genetic changes occurred around the time that rice farming took hold, they may mark people’s adaptation to a historical event, the beginning of the Neolithic revolution as societies switched from wild to cultivated foods.Some of the genes are active in the brain and, although their role is not known, may have affected behavior. So perhaps the brain gene changes seen by Dr. Pritchard in East Asians have some connection with the psychological traits described by Dr. Nisbett.
Some geneticists believe the variations they are seeing in the human genome are so recent that they may help explain historical processes. ‘Since it looks like there has been significant evolutionary change over historical time, we’re going to have to rewrite every history book ever written,’ said Gregory Cochran, a population geneticist at the University of Utah. ‘The distribution of genes influencing relevant psychological traits must have been different in Rome than it is today,’ he added. ‘The past is not just another country but an entirely different kind of people.’”
So does race exist?
Is there something in our genetic makeup that sets certain human populations apart besides simple physical appearance? Is evolution still a factor in human development? From an empirical viewpoint, the answers to the preceding questions are most certainly obvious. However self-evident they may be to the average person, though, common sense (certainly an uncommon virtue these days) is surely enough for the politically correct, deluded racial egalitarians. Thankfully we no longer have to rely solely upon our ordinary powers of observation and reasoning to answer the question of the existence of race. We have genomics to lend support to what we have already known regarding race that extends beyond mere physiological variations.
Before genomics, common sense dictated that there is a biological factor to race in that it is impossible for members of one race to give birth to a child of a different race. For example, Asians give birth to Asian babies, not Negroid babies. Negroids give birth to Negroid babies, not White babies, and so on.
The knowledge we now have about evolution and the human genome vindicates the aforementioned position and we can easily dispel the oft-repeated egalitarian assertion that race is a “social construct.” Despite what we have heard from politically correct social scientists for decades we now have scientific proof that race is a biological reality. April 13, 2003 marked the completion of the Human Genome Project which was established to sequence the base pairs of human DNA and to map its genes and it did so with 99.99% accuracy. Since then, geneticists have been able to analyze the genome and allele frequencies from which they are able to identify a person’s ethnicity with immense certainty. Again, in A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race, and Human History, Nicholas Wade writes
“Analysis of genomes from around the world establishes that there is a biological basis for race, despite the official statements to the contrary of leading social science organizations. An illustration of the point is the fact that with mixed race populations, such as African Americans, geneticists can now track along an individual’s genome, and assign each segment to an African or European ancestor, an exercise that would be impossible if race did not have some basis in biological reality.”
There we have it. Thanks to a select few scientists and astute writers who do not bend to the coercive will of political correctness and egalitarian influence, we have rock solid, irrefutable evidence that race is a biological reality. This information allows us to step over any contentious egalitarian assertions of social constructs and gives us a foundation upon which we can educate our people and work toward the survival of the white race.
Let us first begin by defining race, ethnicity, and culture so that we may better understand their differences and commonalities.
Arthur Kemp provides succinct definitions of each in his work March of the Titans: A History of the White Race:
Race is defined as a group of individuals sharing common genetic attributes which determine that group’s physical appearance and, more controversially, their cognitive abilities.
Ethnicity is the creation of groups by individuals of certain common traditions, languages, art forms, attitudes, and other means of expression.
Culture is the name given to the physical manifestations created by ethnic groups – the actual language, art forms, religion, social order, and achievements of a particular ethnic group.Racial Identity, then, can be defined as the conscious recognition that one belongs to a specific race, ethnicity, and culture and with that comes certain obligations toward their own welfare.
In a video entitled White Identity – What it is and Why it’s Necessary for Europe and the USA, Jared Taylor defines White Identity as
“…a recognition by whites that they have interests in common that must be defended. All other racial groups take this for granted, that it’s necessary to band together along racial lines to work together for common interests.”
Jared Taylor is indeed correct and completely justified in stating that whites have common interests that must be defended even if it were only our common interests that were the focus. We can go further than mere “common interests” and state that those common interests are born of culture, and culture of race. Therefore, we can modify his statement and say that we defend ourselves as a race. Defending our race means defending our culture, as well as our various sub-cultures, and in so doing, we defend our common interests, ensuring our survival.
It is an undeniable fact that Western Civilization was born of the White race. From the cradle of civilization itself in Mesopotamia, to Egypt, Ancient Greece, Macedonia, Rome and every western civilization between then and modern times the White race has been one of ingenuity, art, literature, philosophy, technology, and engineering. Our race has bestowed upon the world the fruits of its knowledge and as such has been fundamental to the advanced development of the human species.
Yet despite all of our monumental accomplishments, we are in decline. We face a very real threat of racial extinction because we have forgotten our place in history. As a result we have forgotten our place in the present and thus face future annihilation.
We are Experiencing Genocide
“Asia for the Asians, Africa for the Africans, white countries for everybody!
Everybody says there is this race problem. Everybody says this race problem will be solved when the third world pours into every white country and only into white countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this race problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final solution to this race problem is for every white country and only white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
What if I said there was this race problem and this race problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into every black country and only into black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a race problem. I am talking about the final solution to the black problem?
And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.” -Robert Whitaker
In March of the Titans, Arthur Kemp describes the four factors that contribute to the fall of civilizations.
- Massive immigration by or an invasion of individuals that are not of the same racial stock as the creators of the original civilization.
- High birth rate among the immigrants or invaders.
- Low birth rate among the creators of the civilization.
- Miscegenation between the creators of the civilization and the immigrants/invaders.
Thus the rise and fall of civilizations can be explained as such:
- Each and every society and culture is the sum and unique product of the people making up that society.
- For example, the Chinese civilization is the product of the Chinese people; the Australian Aboriginal culture is the product of the Aboriginal people, and white society is the product of white people.
- This has nothing to do with subjective notions of superiority or inferiority.
- If the people in a society change their racial makeup, it is, therefore, logical that the culture of that society will change to reflect this shift in society.
- This is what is called the “rise and fall” of civilization – where one culture gets replaced by a different culture.
- The cause of this replacement of cultures is the replacement of the people in that society.
- In this way, the American Indian culture “fell” because they were replaced by whites as the dominant race on the North American continent.
- Civilizations do not then “fall” – they are replaced by another culture, which is the product of the new population.
According to Article II of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, genocide is defined as any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such:
- Killing members of the group;
- Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
- Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
- Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
- Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
The four groups that are protected under international law against genocide are national, ethnic, racial or religious groups.
- A national group means a set of individuals whose identity is defined by a common country of nationality or national origin.
- An ethnic group is a set of individuals whose identity is defined by common cultural traditions, language or heritage.
- A racial group means a set of individuals whose identity is defined by physical characteristics.
- A religious group is a set of individuals whose identity is defined by common religious creeds, beliefs, doctrines, practices, or rituals. (“The International Legal Definition of Genocide – Prevent Genocide International.”)
Mass immigration of non-whites into white countries, forced assimilation by traitorous governments, media and entertainment industries that encourage miscegenation, and liberal egalitarian professors that demonize “Whiteness” and Western Civilization are just a few examples of the program of genocide against all people of European descent. The Federal Government’s refusal to enforce immigration laws, its refusal to curtail illegal immigration, and as forced assimilation is all anti-Whites need in order to eventually exterminate or subsume us as a race since it leaves no homeland for exclusive to Whites. Though the Federal Government’s actions we can see now that what was once an inconspicuous movement of radical leftists aimed at culling Whites on a local and regional scale has now become a clarion call for our gradual replacement.
According to United States Census Bureau projections, the non-Hispanic White population will become a minority in the country that it founded by the year 2043 with Hispanics accounting for one-third of the total population no later than 2060.
The tables below were published by the Census Bureau and represent the estimated percentage distribution of the American population between the years 2020 and 2060.
– Population Distribution Projections
|American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut||4,328,000||4,889,000||5,407,000||5,881,000||6,308,000|
|Asian and Pacific Islander||19,708,000||23,802,000||27,945,000||31,967,000||35,815,000|
|Two or more races||9,704,000||12,929,000||16,814,000||21,443,000||26,737,000|
|Hispanic (of any race)||63,784,000||78,655,000||94,876,000||111,732,000||128,780,000|
– Population Percentage Distribution Projections
|American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut||1.3%||1.4%||1.4%||1.5%||1.5%|
|Asian and Pacific Islander||5.9%||6.6%||7.4%||8.0%||8.5%|
|Two or more races||2.9%||3.6%||4.4%||5.4%||6.4%|
|Hispanic (of any race)||19.1%||21.9%||25.0%||27.9%||30.6%|
Meanwhile, 91.51% of China is made up of Han Chinese, 98% of Japan are ethnically Japanese, 90% of Saudi Arabia’s population is Arab, and North and South Korea are statistically 100% ethnically homogeneous. The last time the United States saw anywhere near a 90% White majority was in 1950. In 1965 the Hart-Celler Act radically changed the immigration quota system in the United States. The White population began declining immediately even though we were told that it would not have any adverse affects on the White population. The foreign-born immigrant population has more than quadrupled fromit’ss 1970 figure of 9.6 million to just over 41.3 million in 2013. (“U.S. Immigrant Population Record 41.3 Million in 2013.” Center for Immigration Studies)
That facts are clear. The only way that Whites can reverse the genocidal flood is to put a moratorium on non-White immigration, mass deportations of illegal immigrants, increase the White birth rate to above replacement level, cease all forced assimilation, and establish boundaries demarcating large areas of land with suitable and plentiful resources solely for Whites. If we do not put a system in place that follows by these steps, White Americans will become a minority in their own country in less than 30 years and will eventually fade into oblivion.
The biggest problem that we face, though, is not opposition from non-Whites or anti-Whites in general, but our own kinsmen who do not share our pro-White stance. The majority of White Americans have little to no sense of racial identity because it has been bred out of them through social constructionism as if the natural tendency toward racial solidarity were some sort of defect. Our roots were severed long ago and we have lost our collective sense of self.
While some may claim that winning the hearts and minds of our kinsmen is a foolish and wasteful effort, I must disagree. Given that pro-White numbers are so small in comparison it would be difficult to defend a direct assault should our opposition decide to stage one. The more people that we can awaken to the genocide of our race, the more we will have to help defend us and future generations. We cannot do this solely by the written word, lest we find ourselves preaching to the choir as the people we want to reach are not going to read our literature until we have given them sufficient reason to do so. Thus we must become activists. We must develop our oratory skills and deliver the message directly to the people in the streets. We must engage them in a professional manner by speaking directly to them and offer them only the facts. It is vital to our mission that we be steadfast and wise so much that it would disgrace our detractors.
Let us step back from what we know about race and pretend for just a moment that it is not a biological fact, but indeed a social construct, as our social scientists would have us believe. Would this still be grounds for the proscription or vilification of non-coercive, free association amongst groups in human populations? Would it make Robert Whitaker’s Mantra any less true? Would it make the Great Replacement any less real even though international law explicitly protects groups that are not specifically racial in nature? Absolutely not. Freedom of association means that any group of people, great or small in number, have the right to peacefully associate and dissociate with whomever they please. This does not insinuate hate or bigotry, but a love and esteem for one’s own and the natural desire to preserve it.
However, as you know from the information provided above, race is undeniably a biological reality and with that reality comes obligations to our kin. We owe it to our ancestors to preserve what they have conferred on us, a proud heritage and legacy worth preserving. We owe it to ourselves that we might live happily by the fruits of our labor in a homeland dedicated solely to us, and we owe it to our posterity to fight for their survival and to leave a legacy they can take pride in.
Lastly, racial and cultural identity have absolutely nothing to do with notions of superiority or inferiority as it pertains to race. Each race is an evolutionary branch of the human species, each with its own genetic peculiarities. These manifest special characteristics wrought by tens of thousands of years of evolution honed by their geographical environments. These qualities define them and differentiate them from the others. Every race on earth is worth preserving since we are all human beings and we all have inherent value. But in order to secure a future for the White race we must defend it against the Great Replacement that is happening before our eyes.
All great movements begin as blasphemies against the status quo. Given the myopic, egalitarian nature of the left, it is inevitable that we shall be derided, condemned, and persecuted for what we stand for, but we will not let that stop us. For it is not that we might stumble or perhaps fall at the hands of our adversaries, but that we might have the tenacity and the will to persevere, to rise again and continue the fight for our people. The Alt-Right’s message is not a call to arms but a call to consciousness! We have a duty and obligation to our people to awaken them from their slumber and reclaim their identity and thereby their future. We must take our stand in the present in order to make our mark on history. We are the standard bearers in the march to restore our honor and our identity as a people.
