I JUST RECEIVED a thoughtful letter from a friend. He shared my recent program about eugenics, The Greatest Gift Ever Given, with a group of mostly-conservative, mostly liberty-loving friends and acquaintances. Their reaction was negative. I’m going to share that letter.
In that broadcast, I show that many of our social problems are the result of one basic fact: That consistently more than half the babies are born to the less intelligent and less fit half of the population. This self-reinforcing process is slowly but inevitably causing a general decline in intelligence, character, and abilities among our people. Even if we didn’t have an invasion of inferiors — even if we didn’t have our huge Black underclass — the higher birthrate among lower quality Whites would still doom us. It would unmake our civilization, leaving us ripe for takeover and exploitation by others. This is already happening. I argue that it is urgent that we take command of our own destiny again and reverse this trend by implementing policies that will instead increase our intelligence and abilities with every generation, and improve our character and fitness. This is a far better policy than the only alternative, which is to let the decline continue — and deal with the resulting increase in crime and other pathologies by implementing an ever-growing, tyrannical, and intrusive police state. Barring a fall of civilization and a return of harsh natural selection, eugenics is in fact our only hope.
Well, that’s what I said. Edited very slightly for broadcast, here’s what my friend said:
I only meant to share and discuss your show with one friend privately. But he played the entire thing to the group, even though he paused it and interjected comments, attempting to spin the interpretation. I spoke with him later and we discussed his concerns at some length. But, in the interests of reaching more people, I thought you might be interested in the nature of the up-hill sell that was required on my part, and the kind of objection I encountered.
In general, your show was immediately attributed to “Nazism,” and discredited by association. Everybody agreed with your excellent characterization of the decline, but balked at the notion that any government or committee should arbitrarily decide who was fit to have children and who was not. Knowing how governments become corrupt, and get abused to the advantage of the powerful, people seemed to think of eugenics as the slippery slope that would be used as a weapon against the individual.
I used the analogy of knives. More people are killed each year by knives than by guns. Knives get abused. And yet, we could not survive without them. Knives can protect, and they can provide food, and prevent the miserable death of starvation. So, we don’t rule out knives, just because they can be, and are, abused.
Many other such things were said.
Naturally, I explained that this article did not use terms like “the master race,” did not discuss hegemony over other people, and did not specify a means of implementation. I pointed out that progress toward reversing the decline can be made simply by encouraging more intelligent people to have offspring, and by using disincentives to attenuate the rate of birth among the low-functioning, such as removing subsidies. It wasn’t enough.
Several people were still skeptical, saying that such policies would be abused, and immediately made the “Nazi” connection.
A clip was played of a very nice, German sounding lady from North Dakota, perhaps you know the one, who said she was a teacher in Germany or Austria at the time, and who told the story of a simple-minded man who was their school janitor, who was well liked, was nice to the children, and did well at his simple job. One day, officials came and took him away, and he was never seen again. Naturally, it was presumed that he was taken away and quietly executed for being retarded, and thus, unfit.
When people think of eugenics, that is what they think of: quiet extermination. He wasn’t a “useless eater”. He was performing a useful function.
Or, they think of the young couple having a baby in the hospital, only to be told that their baby failed some test and was euthanized. We’re sorry. Have a nice day.
Yes, I know our history of that period and that country is filtered. But, neither do I have the ability to prove that it was not so.
While the audience felt the article had merit in identifying a problem, they just did not trust that the use of eugenics as a tool would not quickly degenerate into horrible cruelties, and none of us wanted that.
Such cruelties seemed barbaric to all of us. They seemed more like the human race sinking back into a lower and more bestial existence, instead of a step forward to higher civilization.
I kept pointing out that nothing in the article even suggested that sort of thing. But they believed that such cruelty and horror are where eugenics would inevitably lead. They felt that way because, they believed, eugenics had already done exactly that and they wanted none of it.
One man pointed out to me that, while the article did not specify such things, other articles at the National Alliance do, in fact, lead directly to such things. That was pointless to contest. I am quite sure other writers there think such things would be fine. There is a lot of Hitler worship among people who don’t really know what it was like. In our hunger for strong leadership, such things do seem appealing. But, your association with that sort of mentality, if my experience here is any indication, is a severe limitation on your ability to spread your message of hope. You are considered evil by association, and people who have been conditioned over decades about the horrors of Nazi Germany will not even listen to your words.
Naturally, as a blind man, I wonder at my own fate. I am an intelligent person, a keen problem solver, and have excellent dexterity. I have no doubt that I am a productive individual. I have been gainfully employed in private industry all my life, supported my family single-handedly, paid my taxes, and lived a good life. But, when I was a baby, what would have been my fate? If officials used visual means to assess whether I was generally functional, would I have been put to death? This is a really important question to me.
I have wanted to talk to you about this for a long time. I have always loved your work, because the core message is one of love of family and, by extension, race, and not about hatred of people who are not like us. And, I understand the subtle aspects of your message. I understand how attending to your own family first is at the root of survival, and that you can’t be of help to anyone else if your yourself don’t survive. So, I know I am not a lost cause. But what would the National Socialists have thought? What would pure eugenics, which I think is surely distinct from National Socialism, have to say about it?
How do you deal with this in your own heart? I know of your youngest son, who has autism, for example. How do you reconcile all that for yourself?
Please, think this over, and let me know your thoughts.
Many thanks to my friend for sending that letter. I believe that some of the people who rejected my program are intelligent, independent, conscientious, and kind White people — exactly the sort of people we want on the National Alliance team. But they have all been misled, and misled by people who want them dead. They have been taught to hate and fear any idea which might lead to them actually having a future. They have been taught to revere and protect and worship those who are killing them — and to hate and fear and fight and imprison and persecute and kill those who want to save them.
Let’s take the points raised one by one.
First — and most personal — I love my autistic younger son. He is an innocent soul who should be protected and never hurt. But just as surely, he should never be a father, for even though autism is not and cannot be hereditary, he would be utterly incapable of raising a child and it would be unspeakably cruel to both him and the child to put him in that situation. (As an aside, we desperately need to stop the rise of autism, which used to affect one in thousands of children and now affects one in 45. If current trends continue the rate will soon reach one in three, at which point society will likely collapse. Autism rates are far lower in populations that don’t inject their children with Big Pharma products; but that’s a topic for another place and time.)
Now let’s examine the treatment of blind people in National Socialist Germany. Were they persecuted? Were they murdered?
There are some lurid stories out there on the Internet and in the controlled media which make those or similar claims, just as there are claims that German soldiers played catch with Belgian babies impaled on the ends of their bayonets and that Germans washed with soap made out of their dead victims. But I think I’ve found out enough to put the claims to rest about blind people “disappearing into the night.”
- The German Association for the Blind published a history of their organization on the event of their 150th anniversary in 1956 — 11 years after the end of World War 2, when there was every reason for the group to claim to have been persecuted, if they had been. They make absolutely no mention of any persecution of their association or its members. The group describes its operations as continuing normally right through the National Socialist period, though they do make reference to the horrible destruction wrought upon their people and their operations which were caused by Allied bombing!
- Not only was there a German Association for the Blind that operated all through the (first!) National Socialist period in Germany, but there was also a separate Association of Blind Academics. Not only was this group not persecuted by the National Socialists, but a number of Jews have complained that the Association of Blind Academics supported National Socialism so vigorously that it discriminated against Jews! This group agreed with eugenic measures to stop the spread of hereditary blindness, but, in a move that contradicts the picture of Germany at that time as tolerating no dissent, wrote a strongly-worded note to the government disagreeing with the way that blind people were being portrayed in eugenic literature.
- A Jewish memorial site based in Berlin states that a Jew named Günther Edelstein was forced by the National Socialist government to work for the German Association of the Blind.
- Adolf Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, was published in Germany under the auspices of the National Socialists in braille — in 1932 in a three-volume set, and in 1936 in a six-volume set.
People with hereditary diseases, including but not limited to hereditary blindness, were discouraged from having children in National Socialist Germany. In some relatively rare cases, people were sterilized so they could still have a sexual life without passing on their malady. This is not cruel, in my opinion. The health and the lives of the infinite future generations of our Folk are far more important than the entire present generation. Their life and their good must be a paramount consideration in everything we do. Letting hereditary diseases, or severe weaknesses, spread and multiply is not kindness — it is both cruelty and suicide.
Now — were the German doctors always right in their diagnoses? Were the right choices always made? No, I am sure mistakes were made. Is it possible that some of the German laws of that period were wrong-headed, counterproductive, and regrettable? Of course it is, but that is not unique to National Socialism. Is it possible that there were cruel or incompetent people in positions of authority in National Socialist Germany, who did things we would condemn? Of course it’s possible, even likely. In a country of 70 million, there are going to be a few criminals, sadists, and people who abuse their power in high places. Just as I’ve seen in the United States!
But the key factor is this, and it’s relevant to every era and every country, not just Germany: To have a better society, we need better men (and of course I mean women too). To have a better government, we need better men. To have better laws, we need better men. To reach the stars and ensure that Life survives, we need better men. To avoid incompetence and cruelty and evil, we need better men. And the Cosmotheist ideal — of using eugenics, conscious direction of our own evolution, to scale the heights of Higher Man — is the only possible way that better men can come into being. There is no other way. No other way.
These people who hate and fear us should instead hate and fear a continuation of the status quo, which is leading us to a stinking Third World hellhole America, where the worst characteristics of a ghetto and a prison camp are combined, where our daughters are possessed and abused and used and killed by lower-than-animals, where our only purpose in life is to slave blindly for the moneyed alien elite and to die forgotten, our mission on Earth unachieved, and all we ever loved blowing away in the dust that will soon enough cover the Earth.
These fearful people who rejected my program say that we can’t give the power to decide life and death and who shall have children to any government. That power will be abused, they say. (First let me say that I agree that that power would be abused by the government we have now, which is not our government at all. I don’t want that government to have any power. Everything I say here is predicated on establishing a new government for our people, answerable only to us, which is essential if we are to live and do anything whatsoever.) What these people don’t understand is that we already have such abuses, and those abuses are part of a program — the System that oppresses us now does decide who shall be encouraged to have children, and who shall be discouraged, which groups will be protected and favored and given resources, and which shall be disfavored and have resources taken from them — and be legally persecuted and hounded unto death. And we all know which race is disfavored and having its resources transferred to others by the government and the alien billionaires that own it: our race, which they have slated for replacement and extinction. That’s happening right now, and we will die if it isn’t stopped. I am saying that this evil, genocidal program should be replaced by one that is moral and in accord with the will of the Creator — and which insures that our children and their children will exist in the future — and that life itself will continue to exist in the future.
We’ll do that if I have anything to say about it. And we’ll do it in a noble way, an Aryan way. We abhor cruelty. We abhor unnecessary harm to conscious life of any kind. If the National Socialists fell short, and if we fall short, that only proves what I said before, that we need better men. And, by God, we must get them, even if the path to that point is not a perfect straight line. We can no more give up on this supremely moral cause because we are imperfect and make mistakes than we can give up on having a justice system because there are sometimes wrongful convictions.
There are many people who sincerely want our race to survive and who sincerely want it to progress, who think that they somehow can avoid the hatred and persecution of the government and the media-fueled mob by condemning Hitler and National Socialism. It can’t be done. If you say you support eugenics for our race — if you say you want our race to progress — if you even say that you want our race to continue existing — and, today, if you even are so bold to state that our race does exist now and has interests of its own — you will be condemned as a “nazi.” Just look at what they’ve done to poor old Jew-loving Donald Trump, who did little more than say we need to slow down immigration a bit — and he is portrayed as a “racist,” a “fascist,” a “nazi,” and every frame of every video of his is analyzed for anything resembling a Roman salute or “White nationalist hand gesture.” A book of Hitler’s speeches has even been published with Trump’s picture, right arm raised, printed on it.
The people who are engineering our genocide believe that the most successful pushback against their evil plans, National Socialism, must be made into a metaphor for evil in the minds of Whites — or they, the parasites, are done for. And they’ve done a pretty good job of doing that. So good a job that only perhaps five or ten per cent. of the White public will at this time consider National Socialism as anything but pure, unadulterated evil.
Should that discourage us? Not at all, for two reasons: 1) When White people are pushed down far enough, when reality cannot be avoided any longer, when every White man or woman has family members dying as a direct result of multiracialism, increasing numbers of them will remember just exactly who it was that their executioners so desperately wanted them to hate and reject — who it is that exemplifies the direct opposite of the enemy that is killing them — who it is that almost defeated that enemy just a few decades ago. 2) National Socialism is, as a wise man once said, simply Natural Law applied to human society. And Cosmotheism is the best expression of the spiritual basis of such a society. If only five per cent. of the people are capable of understanding that now, that is fine. The truth is still the truth, and truth will out. Nature is still Nature, and Nature always prevails. And it has taken a 24/7 multibillion-dollar lie machine going for more than half a century to make so many White people hate themselves and hate the people who are telling them the truth — yet, as any examination of social media will show you, awareness of the truth is growing. And we don’t have to recruit that entire five per cent. Just five per cent. of that five per cent. is 500,000 people — and 500,000 dedicated Aryan souls is enough to do what needs to be done. Let’s get to work, and everybody pull his own weight!
