THE THIRD RENAISSANCE: More thoughts from John Galsworthy; writing in 1911 — near the brink of the Suicide of the West in World War I — he called his age the Third Renaissance:
“I cannot help thinking that historians, looking back from the far future, will record this age as the Third Renaissance. We who are lost in it, working or looking on, can neither tell what we are doing, nor where standing; but we cannot help observing, that, just as in the Greek Renaissance, worn-out Pagan orthodoxy was penetrated by new philosophy; just as in the Italian Renaissance, Pagan philosophy, reasserting itself, fertilised again an already too inbred Christian creed; so now Orthodoxy fertilised by Science is producing a fresh and fuller conception of life — a love of Perfection, not for hope of reward, not for fear of punishment, but for Perfection’s sake. Slowly, under our feet, beneath our consciousness, is forming that new philosophy, and it is in times of new philosophies that Art, itself in essence always a discovery, must flourish.”
GALSWORTHY’S “THE APPLE TREE”: This work by John Galsworthy (pictured) is surely one of the greatest short stories in the English language. It sensitively and artistically delineates the deep feelings, the rapture, the ecstasy, the tragedy, and the compromises and social strictures that surround erotic and romantic love.
I think it also says something new to modern men and women who live in a world of cheapened sex, who may not yet understand how deeply Cupid’s arrow may — and indeed, ought to — pierce.
“The Apple Tree” has passed into the public domain, and so one may read it online for free. But there is nothing quite like experiencing this story in an oaken-paneled library or in a meadow dotted with wildflowers — so buy a copy or make a printout and read it someplace far from flickering LCD screens.
Whites may be inferior to other races in several critical skills

Free Speech magazine, December 1995
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This publication corrects some typographical errors and omissions which have been present since this article’s first appearance on the Internet in the 1990s. I would also add that the term “separatist” has become, in the intervening years, an opprobrious media smear word almost as frightening to two-legged rabbits as “supremacist.” The word “compound,” referring to someone’s rural house or business or intentional community, is another coöpted word which has been given newly-negative implications. – K.A.S., January 26, 2009
I RECEIVED an electronic mail message a while back accusing me of being a “White supremacist.” I won’t give the name of the person who wrote me with this comment, even though he left the message, including his name, in a public forum on a computer network that can be accessed by anyone. I won’t give his name because he didn’t give me permission to do so. I had left a message on the computer network, asking everyone who read the message to tune into American Dissident Voices, and giving our latest radio schedule.
DEPROGRAMMING, PORTUGUESE STYLE: Another site has linked to my main page (thank you!), this one a news portal dedicated to awakening the people of Portugal to the need for racial integrity and cultural survival.
Its title means “Blind, Deaf, and Dumb” in English, which is exactly how the billionaire media elite wants all peoples to be.
The wars which the American sheep are bamboozled into supporting are far more about establishing a “friendly climate” for “foreign investment” (translation: the establishment of racially-destructive and pro-Zionist media combines) than they are about oil. Plaudits to the unselfish editors and writers at Cegos, Mudos, e Surdos.
THANKS TO ROMANIAN NATIONALIST SITE: My poem “To Those I Love” was recently reprinted by the Romanian National Vanguard News Agency; they seem to be quite active, with daily international news updates in English.
THE JEWISH CONTRIBUTION TO ‘ANTI-SEMITISM’: Pravda online just published a rather even-handed article with that daring title by Dr. Peter Baofu. I applaud their courage in doing so, and they do outshine the nominally American press in many areas, but I wish they would stop damaging their credibility with articles by anti-evolution cranks and junk science essays like “Birds can scan the future,” et cetera.
MORE WHITE CHILDREN: According to the Daily Telegraph, encouraging a higher birthrate in his country is Russian President Medvedev’s pet cause. Among other measures, Medvedev (pictured) instituted the “Order of Parental Glory” for Russian families who bring four or more children into the world and provide them with a healthy environment. Russian birthrates grew by 8 per cent. in 2007 and 6 per cent. last year.
Russia has the glory of being a country where the phrase “more children” is synonymous with “more White children.” Bravo to Medvedev for making the world a better place.
A READER recently wrote: “I share your enthusiasm for Poe, but I do not understand how he is a Cosmotheist.”
I regard Poe as an instinctive, intuitive Cosmotheist thinker, though he did not construct or expound a religion or philosophy based upon his ideas as did William Pierce and others.
Consider Poe’s words from his ‘prose poem’ Eureka, which he held to be one of his most important works, though it is among his most ignored today. Poe makes many errors in Eureka, but few that cannot be excused by the limited scientific knowledge of his day. He didn’t have the facts available to Pierce, Romer, Dawkins, Cattell, or even Shaw and Nietzsche; but he did see far more deeply than most writers of his time. Some of his intuitive insights are astounding.
One of the central ideas of Cosmotheism is that Man’s consciousness is but part of the emerging self-consciousness of the universe. Poe, who also seems to anticipate the idea of entropy in this passage, said:
I’M OFTEN MISQUOTED: Two quotes of mine are often given incorrectly, the first because of imprecise remembrance of a memorable idea, and the second because of a purposely or inadvertently sloppy journalist reporting on my historic trial.
The first is my maxim on the rulers of society, which exists online and in print in a dozen different variations, some of them probably more elegant than my original.
What I said was: “To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?”
The second common misquotation is of my statement on racial supremacism when I was on trial in 2007 (at which trial I was acquitted of all charges). The press had repeatedly accused of me being a “White supremacist,” a totally false claim since I oppose all forms of racial supremacism (one race ruling over or dominating another and denying the other’s self-determination and freedom).
The papers and those who parrot them had me saying “I’m no more a White supremacist than the Dalai Lama,” a nonsensical statement since no one claims the Dalai Lama is White, much less a White supremacist.
What I actually said was this: “I’m no more a White supremacist than the Dalai Lama is a Tibetan supremacist. He loves his people too.”

MY NAME is Kevin Alfred Strom. I have been in solitary confinement for sixteen months. Circumstances and strategic considerations have kept me silent until now. But I have sworn to tell the whole truth, so I ask the court to grant me now perhaps one minute for every month I have been imprisoned.
All along I’ve told the truth to everyone — investigators, family members, this court, my closest friends — about this case, even when that truth was embarrassing to me or easily misconstrued to be used against me.
Let me tell you a little about my background. For some 20 years, I worked as a broadcast engineer. For three years, until I moved to Virginia in 2001, I was the local chapter leader of the Family Support Network, a parenting group. I’m a writer, a publisher, an editor, a broadcaster — and an activist for social change who’s taken on some powerful interest groups, armed only with a microphone and a pen. But more than anything else, I’m a father.
