Darkening Age, 27

Below, excerpts from the final
chapter of Nixey’s book:

‘Moreover, we forbid the teaching of any doctrine by those who labour under the insanity of paganism’.

– Justinian Code

The philosopher Damascius was a brave man: you had to be to see what he had seen and still be a philosopher. But as he walked through the streets of Athens in AD 529 and heard the new laws bellowed out in the town’s crowded squares, even he must have felt the stirrings of unease. He was a man who had known persecution at the hands of the Christians before. He would have been a fool not to recognize the signs that it was beginning again.

As a young man, Damascius had studied philosophy in Alexandria, the city of the murdered Hypatia. He had not been there for long when the city had turned, once again, on its philosophers. The persecution had begun dramatically. A violent attack on a Christian by some non-Christian students had started a chain of reprisals in which philosophers and pagans were targeted. Christian monks, armed with an axe, had raided, searched then demolished a house accused of being a shrine to ‘demonic’ idols. The violence had spread and Christians had found and collected all images of the old gods from across Alexandria, from the bathhouses and from people’s homes. They had placed them in a pyre in the centre of the city and burned them. As the Christian chronicler, Zachariah of Mytilene, comfortably observed, Christ had declared that he had ‘given you the authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all enemy power’.

For Damascius and his fellow philosophers, however, all that had been a mere prelude to what came next. Soon afterwards, an imperial officer had been sent to Alexandria to investigate paganism. The investigation had rapidly turned to persecution. This was when philosophers had been tortured by being hung up by cords and when Damascius’s own brother had been beaten with cudgels – and to Damascius’s great pride, had remained silent…

Damascius decided to flee. In secret, he hurried with his teacher, Isidore, to the harbour and boarded a boat. Their final destination was Greece, and Athens, the most famous city in the history of Western philosophy.

It was now almost four decades since Damascius had escaped to Athens as an intellectual exile. In that time, a lot had changed. When he had arrived in the city he had been a young man; now he was almost seventy. But he was still as energetic as ever, and as he walked about Athens in his distinctive philosopher’s cloak – the same austere cloak that Hypatia had worn – many of the citizens would have recognized him. For this émigré was now not only an established fixture of Athenian philosophy and a prolific author, he was also the successful head of one of the city’s philosophical schools: the Academy. To say ‘one of’ the schools is to diminish this institution’s importance: it was perhaps the most famous school in Athens, indeed in the entire Roman Empire. It traced its history back almost a thousand years and it would leave its linguistic traces on Europe and America for two thousand years to come. Every modern academy, académie and akademie owes its name it.

Since he had crossed the wine-dark sea, life had gone well for Damascius – astonishingly well, given the turbulence he had left behind. In Alexandria, Christian torture, murder and destruction had had its effect on the intellectual life of the city. After Hypatia’s murder the numbers of philosophers in Alexandria and the quality of what was being taught there had, unsurprisingly, declined rapidly. In the writings of Alexandrian authors there is a clear mood of depression, verging on despair. Many, like Damascius, had left.

In fifth-century Athens, the Church was far less powerful and considerably less aggressive. Its intellectuals had felt pressure nonetheless. Pagan philosophers who flagrantly opposed Christianity paid for their dissent. The city was rife with informers and city officials listened to them. One of Damascius’s predecessors had exasperated the authorities so much that he had fled, escaping – narrowly – with his life and his property. Another philosopher so vexed the city’s Christians by his unrepentant ‘pagan’ ways that he had had to go into exile for a year to get away from the ‘vulture-like men’ who now watched over Athens. In an act that could hardly have been more symbolic of their intellectual intentions, the Christians had built a basilica in the middle of what had once been a library. The Athens that had been so quarrelsome, so gloriously and unrepentantly argumentative, was being silenced. This was an increasingly tense, strained world. It was, as another author and friend of Damascius put it, ‘a time of tyranny and crisis’.

The very fabric of the city had changed. Its pagan festivals had been stopped, its temples closed and, as in Alexandria, the skyline of the city had been desecrated; here, by the removal of Phidias’s great figure of Athena…

Despite his success, Damascius had not forgotten what he had seen in Alexandria – and had not forgiven it, either. His writings show a never-failing contempt for the Christians. He had seen the power of Christian zeal in action. His brother had been tortured by it. His teacher had been exiled by it. And, in the year 529, zealotry was once again in evidence. Christianity had long ago announced that all pagans had been wiped out. Now, finally, reality was to be forced to fall in with the triumphant rhetoric.

The determination that lay behind this threat was not only felt in Athens in this period. It was in AD 529, the very same year in which the atmosphere in Athens began to worsen, that St Benedict destroyed that shrine to Apollo in Monte Cassino…

Previous attacks on Damascius and his scholars had largely been driven by local enthusiasms; a violently aggressive band of Alexandrian monks here, an officious local official there. But this attack was something new. It came not from the enthusiasm of a hostile local power; it came in the form of a law – from the emperor himself…

This was the end. The ‘impious and wicked pagans’ were to be allowed to continue in their ‘insane error’ no longer. Anyone who refused salvation in the next life would, from now on, be all but damned in this one…

This was no longer mere prohibition of other religious practices. It was the active enforcement of Christianity on every single, sinful pagan in the empire. The roads to error were being closed, forcefully. Everyone now had to become Christian. Every single person in the empire who had not yet been baptized now had to come forward immediately, go to the holy churches and ‘entirely abandon the former error [and] receive saving baptism’…

‘Moreover’, it reads, ‘we forbid the teaching of any doctrine by those who labour under the insanity of paganism’ so that they might not ‘corrupt the souls of their disciples.’ The law goes on, adding a finicky detail or two about pay, but largely that is it.

Its consequences were formidable. It was this law that forced Damascius and his followers to leave Athens. It was this law that caused the Academy to close. It was this law that led the English scholar Edward Gibbon to declare that the entirety of the barbarian invasions had been less damaging to Athenian philosophy than Christianity was. This law’s consequences were described more simply by later historians. It was from this moment, they said, that a Dark Age began to descend upon Europe…

Free philosophy has gone. The great destruction of classical texts gathers pace. The writings of the Greeks ‘have all perished and are obliterated’: that was what John Chrysostom had said. He hadn’t been quite right, then: but time would bring greater truth to his boast. Undefended by pagan philosophers or institutions, and disliked by many of the monks who were copying them out, these texts start to disappear. Monasteries start to erase the works of Aristotle, Cicero, Seneca and Archimedes. ‘Heretical’ – and brilliant – ideas crumble into dust. Pliny is scraped from the page. Cicero and Seneca are overwritten. Archimedes is covered over. Every single work of Democritus and his heretical ‘atomism’ vanishes. Ninety per cent of all classical literature fades away…

The pages of history go silent. But the stones of Athens provide a small coda to the story of the seven philosophers… The lovely statue of Athena, the goddess of wisdom, suffered as badly as the statue of Athena in Palmyra had. Not only was she beheaded she was then, a final humiliation, placed face down in the corner of a courtyard to be used as a step. Over the coming years, her back would be worn away as the goddess of wisdom was ground down by generations of Christian feet.

The ‘triumph’ of Christianity was complete.

Ron Unz and JFK

or

Leaving the courtroom

My comment in the previous post, about Ron Unz’s credulity about conspiracy theories (CTs) of the assassination of John F. Kennedy has made me think, once again, about what we might call the pathology of extraordinary beliefs. As the sceptics of CTs have said, which not only includes JFK but also 9/11, this is a topic that, like religion and politics, should not be touched in after-dinner conversations. People feel very hurt and it is impossible to argue on good terms.

Let’s use the analogy of the lawyer and the prosecutor who bring the experts to court to try to convince the jury; say, the mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald staged by British television between Gerry Spence and Vincent Bugliosi. A good litmus test to know who has a closed mind is simply to point out who, when watching the TV show at home, leaves the room when the speaker is either Spence or Bugliosi.

The fact is that it is those who believe in the CT who usually leave the room, so to speak, in the sense that they never read sceptical books. Their attitude is as surreal as Alice’s Queen of Hearts in Wonderland: first comes to the sentence and then the trial. First we ‘know’ that 9/11 was an inside job, or, in the case of JFK, we ‘know’ that Oswald didn’t act alone. The long trial process that culminates in the sentence is of no importance or consequence for those who ‘know’ the truth.

Ron Unz is reputed to be a voracious devourer of books and articles. But when the issue of the trial between Spence and Bugliosi arrives, he leaves the courtroom every time the prosecutor speaks. Last year, in this discussion thread of his webzine, Unz said he had not read the thick Bugliosi treatise. When a supporter of Bugliosi pointed out that there was a much shorter book of another ‘prosecutor’ (pic above), a book that with the amazing capacity that Unz has could read it in one day, Unz did not respond.

That is the all too common attitude among those who believe in CTs. True Believers can read a dozen books promoting the conspiracy but not a single article from the other side (listen how Bugliosi explains this bizarre behaviour: here)! That is why they ignore the most basic arguments of the prosecutor. For example, in the most recent discussion thread about the 9/11 attacks, some visitors got mad at me but none advanced an argument about a video I linked about Building 7 (for the believers in the 9/11 CTs, Building 7 is considered one of their strongest arguments of what they call ‘controlled demolition’).

It is relatively easy to find out who’s the one who leaves the courthouse every time the opposing lawyer speaks. They are those who believe not only in the CT about JFK or 9/11, but in the so-called Fake Moon Landing, Satanic Ritual Abuse, or the existence of UFOs in Hangar 14 of the US government.

Let’s illustrate this with my case. I used to believe in the pseudoscience of parapsychology. I spent many years of my life wanting to prove the existence of ‘psi’ (extrasensory perception and psychokinesis). I didn’t read the sceptics of the paranormal because they were ‘the bad guys in the movie’.

When I finally spoke with them, at a November 1989 conference they invited me to, I was surprised that those I considered closed were, in fact, quite open people. They even subscribed to the main journals of parapsychology. That happened also with UFO sceptics. They were avid readers of their opponents’ literature: those who promote the hypothesis that UFOs are manned extraterrestrial ships. It is the believers of the extraterrestrial hypothesis who never read the literature of the sceptics.

Before, I only read literature from parapsychologists. But after meeting the ‘prosecutors’ in the early 1990s I became familiar, little by little, with their literature. A few years after subscribing to the Skeptical Inquirer there came a time when I felt agnostic (just as there are people who are no longer a hundred percent sure that God exists). Concurrently I realised that my parapsychological colleagues did not read sceptical literature, nor did they respond to the main arguments of the sceptics (Occam’s razor, the falsifiability principle, etc.).

Only until May 1995, thinking outside a subway station, there was a time when I seriously doubted, for the first time in life, the existence of psi (something similar to a priest doubting for the first time in his life of the existence of God). However, it would take me a few more years to understand why had I got caught in such a self-sealing belief system in the first place: an issue I address in my autobiographical books (see sidebar at the bottom of this page).

I mention this just so that it is understood that there are times that we are so absolutely convinced that pseudoscience is real science that we do not realise that it is a cathedral built on clay bases.

When I lived in Marin County I once had the opportunity to realise that the foundations of the ‘science’ I was studying were shaky. In a bookstore I saw that they sold A Skeptic’s Handbook of Parapsychology. Thirty-four years have passed since that night and I still remember the image of James Randi on the dustcover. But I thought I couldn’t afford it. If I had listened to the prosecutor, a dozen (lost) years of my life would have been spared! But I didn’t listen to him and embarked on a quixotic project of wanting to develop psi.

You can’t learn from another’s mistakes. I know that what I say here won’t make any dent whatsoever in the True Believers’ worldview who, like Unz, flee from the courtroom every time Bugliosi speaks. They do this to avoid the most elemental cognitive dissonance, as I did when I was trapped in my self-sealing system. But if I could travel to the past and see Cesar in that California bookstore in 1985, I would tell him, I would beg him, to buy the book he had in his young hands…

Excerpts of Unz’s WW2 article

To put things in plain language, during the years leading up to the Second World War, both Churchill and numerous other fellow British MPs were regularly receiving sizable financial stipends—cash bribes—from Jewish and Czech sources in exchange for promoting a policy of extreme hostility toward the German government and actually advocating war.

The sums involved were quite considerable, with the Czech government alone probably making payments that amounted to tens of millions of dollars in present-day money to British elected officials, publishers, and journalists working to overturn the official peace policy of their existing government.

A particularly notable instance occurred in early 1938 when Churchill suddenly lost all his accumulated wealth in a foolish gamble on the American stock-market, and was soon forced to put his beloved country estate up for sale to avoid personal bankruptcy, only to quickly be bailed out by a foreign Jewish millionaire intent upon promoting a war against Germany. Indeed, the early stages of Churchill’s involvement in this sordid behavior are recounted in an Irving chapter aptly entitled “The Hired Help.”

Ironically enough, German Intelligence learned of this massive bribery of British parliamentarians, and passed the information along to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who was horrified to discover the corrupt motives of his fierce political opponents, but apparently remained too much of a gentlemen to have them arrested and prosecuted. I’m no expert in the British laws of that era, but for elected officials to do the bidding of foreigners on matters of war and peace in exchange for huge secret payments seems almost a textbook example of treason to me, and I think that Churchill’s timely execution would surely have saved tens of millions of lives…

There is a feeling now prevalent in the United States marked by growing hatred of Fascism, and above all of Chancellor Hitler and everything connected with National Socialism. Propaganda is mostly in the hands of the Jews who control almost 100% of the radio, film, daily and periodical press. Although this propaganda is extremely coarse and presents Germany as black as possible–above all religious persecution and concentration camps are exploited–this propaganda is nevertheless extremely effective since the public here is completely ignorant and knows nothing of the situation in Europe…

Given the heavy Jewish involvement in financing Churchill and his allies and also steering the American government and public in the direction of war against Germany, organized Jewish groups probably bore the central responsibility for provoking the world war, and this was surely recognized by most knowledgeable individuals at the time…

With such examples in mind, we should hardly be surprised that for decades this huge Jewish involvement in orchestrating World War II was carefully omitted from nearly all subsequent historical narratives, even those that sharply challenged the mythology of the official account.

The index of Taylor’s iconoclastic 1961 work contains absolutely no mention of Jews, and the same is true of the previous books by Chamberlin and Grenfell.

In 1953, Harry Elmer Barnes, the dean of historical revisionists, edited his major volume aimed at demolishing the falsehoods of World War II, and once again any discussion of the Jewish role was almost entirely lacking, with only part of one single sentence and Chamberlain’s dangling short quote appearing across more than 200,000 words of text.

Both Barnes and many of his contributors had already been purged and their book was only released by a tiny publisher in Idaho, but they still sought to avoid certain unmentionables.

Even the arch-revisionist David Hoggan seems to have carefully skirted the topic of Jewish influence. His 30-page index lacks any entry on Jews and his 700 pages of text contain only scattered references. Indeed, although he does quote the explicit private statements of both the Polish ambassador and the British Prime Minister emphasizing the enormous Jewish role in promoting the war, he then rather questionably asserts that these confidential statements of individuals with the best understanding of events should simply be disregarded.

In the popular Harry Potter series, Lord Voldemort, the great nemesis of the young magicians, is often identified as “He Who Must Not Be Named,” since the mere vocalization of those few particular syllables might bring doom upon the speaker…

While visiting France during 1986 in preparation for an unrelated book, a Canadian writer named James Bacque stumbled upon clues suggesting that one of the most terrible secrets of post-war Germany had long remained completely hidden, and he soon embarked upon extensive research into the subject, finally publishing Other Losses in 1989. Based upon very considerable evidence, including government records, personal interviews, and recorded eyewitness testimony, he argued that after the end of the war, the Americans had starved to death as many as a million German POWs, seemingly as a deliberate act of policy, a war crime that would surely rank among the greatest in history.

Assuming these numbers are even remotely correct, the implications are quite remarkable. The toll of the human catastrophe experienced in post-war Germany would certainly rank among the greatest in modern peacetime history, far exceeding the deaths that occurred during the Ukrainian Famine of the early 1930s and possibly even approaching the wholly unintentional losses during Mao’s Great Leap Forward of 1959-61.

Furthermore, the post-war German losses would vastly outrank either of these other unfortunate events in percentage terms and this would remain true even if the Bacque’s estimates are considerably reduced. Yet I doubt if even a small fraction of one percent of Americans are today aware of this enormous human calamity. Presumably memories are much stronger in Germany itself, but given the growing legal crackdown on discordant views in that unfortunate country, I suspect that anyone who discusses the topic too energetically risks immediate imprisonment…

When intellectual freedom is under attack, challenging an officially enshrined mythology may become legally perilous. I have seen claims that thousands of individuals who hold heterodox opinions about various aspects of the history of World War II are today imprisoned across Europe on the basis of those beliefs. If so, that total is probably far higher than the number of ideological dissidents who had suffered a similar fate in the decaying Soviet Bloc countries of the 1980s…

But if we gradually conclude that the story that all of us have been told during our entire lifetimes is substantially false and perhaps largely inverted, the implications for our understanding of the world are enormous.

Most of the surprising material presented here is hardly hidden or kept under lock-and-key. Nearly all the books are easily available at Amazon or even freely readable on the Internet, many of the authors have received critical and scholarly acclaim, and in some cases their works have sold in the millions. Yet this important material has been almost entirely ignored or dismissed by the popular media that shapes the common beliefs of our society. So we must necessarily begin to wonder what other massive falsehoods may have been similarly promoted by that media, perhaps involving incidents of the recent past or even the present day. And those latter events do have enormous practical significance…

Both of these simple facts have been widely accepted in America throughout my entire lifetime. But combine them together with the relatively tiny size of worldwide Jewry, around 16 million prior to World War II, and the inescapable conclusion is that in per capita terms Jews were the greatest mass-murderers of the twentieth century, holding that unfortunate distinction by an enormous margin and with no other nationality coming even remotely close. And yet, by the astonishing alchemy of Hollywood, the greatest killers of the last one hundred years have somehow been transmuted into being seen as the greatest victims, a transformation so seemingly implausible that future generations will surely be left gasping in awe.

Editor’s note: The original, ‘American Pravda: Understanding World War II’, is a 21,700-word article. As I said in the preface of The Fair Race, this is one of the elephants in the room.

Strom, Oliver and Dietz

One is always discovering important matters. Yesterday, for example, I listened to the four-part dialogue between Kevin Alfred Strom and Jay Hess about Revilo P. Oliver on the Strom website.

As boomers they are what impressed me was that their way of speaking is very much in tune with my character. If there is something that I no longer tolerate from younger racialists it is, at least in what can be heard in the videos, their tremendous lack of gravitas. They are still wrapped in a ‘happy mode’ as Americans ignore the storm ahead after their dollar crashes. I, a boomer like Strom, have a fundamentally different character and way of speaking to younger generations.

Oliver was not a boomer: he was born in 1908, more or less of the generation of my maternal grandparents. He was a true scholar who read several languages, including Sanskrit, Latin, Greek and Spanish. It is unfortunate that young racialists, who are generally monolingual, do not take advantage of the wisdom of a man like Oliver, especially now that Strom has republished many of his texts on the internet.

Oliver was ahead of his time. He came to predict that by the excesses of the Federal Reserve there would be a monetary problem with the dollar in the future. And in his field of expertise he was also very advanced. Since last year I have been mentioning the young exegete Richard Carrier, who considers it very likely Jesus never actually existed as a historical person. Oliver, who died in 1994, already sensed it a dozen years before Carrier. See for example this essay-review by Oliver of Nicholas Carter’s book, The Christ Myth.

Oliver’s article that republished Strom mentioned Liberty Bell, but the link to that magazine’s issue on the Strom site was already broken. I used a search engine and oh surprise: I found this article.

According to Metapedia, ‘Liberty Bell was an American National Socialist oriented magazine with a conservative veneer. The magazine was published by George P. Dietz and appeared from September 1973 to February 1999. Revilo P. Oliver was a major contributor to this publication’. I clicked on George Dietz’s article in the same online encyclopaedia and found that Dietz’s ‘Liberty Bell catalog held over 300 titles of books and pamphlets in English, German, Spanish, and French’, and that Dietz was the first racialist ‘to appear on the emerging Internet’, that he ‘was born in Kassel, Germany in 1928 and was a member of the Hitler Youth. He came to the United States in 1957 and became a U.S. citizen in 1962’.

So here we have a bridge between the authentic National Socialism and the American racialist movement. Why don’t today’s webzines by racially aware pundits mention it? Counter-Currents has only one mention, in passing, of Dietz and The Occidental Observer apparently none. This seems incredible to me, as Liberty Bell used to mention matters of great importance, such as the American plan to exterminate the Germans after World War II. Also the site of Jared Taylor, who has been called the granddaddy of the alt-right, seems like a parallel world to what survived of National Socialism in the US. Why?

My working hypothesis is that this is because all these seemingly secular people, who are also boomers, have not abandoned Christian ethics. It is precisely Christian ethics, as well as not rebelling against their American project, which makes them blind to a superior nation as was Germany. Perhaps one of the bridges that helps us link the two worlds is Strom’s library work? There is much to read in the process of education that never ends: an antidote to the brainwashing machinery that is the West today, as Oliver called it.

Now that The Fair Race PDF is completed I should resume my translations of Christianity’s Criminal History. Although Oliver was aware of the Christian problem, just as Strom he did not seem to know that it was bigger than the Jewish problem. As we know, internal betrayal is worse than the subversion of the external enemy. And I cannot imagine anything more serious than worshiping the god of our enemies and obeying his ethnosuicidal commandments (remember, the Old Testament teaches in-group love to the Jews and the New Testament teaches out-group love to us gentiles).

Christianity’s Criminal History, 120

Editors’ note: To contextualise these excerpts of a 2-page section of Vol. II, ‘Theodosius II, Executor of All the Precepts of Christianity’ in Karlheinz Deschner’s encyclopaedic history of the Church in 10-volumes, Kriminalgeschichte des Christentums, read the abridged translation of Volume I.

Regarding this portrait of Theodosius II, remember what one of the authors said in The Fair Race: ‘Judging by the quality of the portrait, we may surmise that the Empire was not in good shape under his reign, or perhaps it is that the old pagan sculptors had been killed!’

______ 卐 ______

 
Arcadius’ son, Theodosius II (408-450), counted at the beginning of his regency seven years of age. For that reason, the government first took the Praetorian prefect Artemius, an anti-Germanic military, who had already educated Arcadius…

As regards to the so-called ‘pagans’, Theodosius assumes in the year 423 that they no longer exist. A godly desire. In fact, since 415 they had been separated from the high positions and the army. In 416 all non-Christians were expelled from state offices. In 423 the participation in sacrifices was punished with banishment and the confiscation of property. In 435 and 438 the celebration of the old religion was punished with death, even attributing the bad crops and epidemics to ‘idolatrous cults’.

We prohibit all execrable animal sacrifices and the damnable libations of the pagan ideology, and everything already prohibited by the authority of older provisions. We send by official disposition that all its sanctuaries, temples and sacred places be destroyed, if there is still one that has gone unnoticed, and that they be redeemed by erecting the sign of our venerable Christian religion. Everyone should know that if someone can be brought before the competent judge with adequate evidence of having transgressed this law, they must be punished with death.

The prince burned in the year 418, when he was only seventeen years old, all the anti-Christian works. At the end of the 4th century and in the 5th century, almost all non-Catholic literature was almost systematically destroyed, and already in 398 the possession of treaties by ‘heretics’ was threatened with death. In 418, under Theodosius II, the last copies of the fifteen books of Porphyry Against the Christians went to the fire, after Constantine had already ordered in the Council of Nicaea, in 325, the burning of the works of said author.

Great personalities defend eugenics, 11

by Evropa Soberana

Many things must be destroyed to build the New Order; now we know that Germany was one of those things… That heaven exists, even if our place is hell.

—Jorge Luis Borges
Deutsches Requiem

Those who stand out at this time are once again British and American, whose predominance in science and other fields places them as the most fruitful branch of the current Indo-European world. After the Third Reich, eugenics became a taboo subject. After the fall of Christianity, the antichrist seemed to be meaningless, but in Adolf Hitler the System found the antichrist he needed to keep the flock once again in ignorance and stupidity.

This new eugenics, relying on the knowledge of DNA, genome, modern embryology and genetic engineering, has the possibility of overcoming the eugenics of the Anglo-Saxons and the subsequent ‘racial hygiene’ of the Germans to give birth, in a single generation, to a man so perfect that it would probably constitute a different species from the current Homo sapiens. In this concluding section I emphasise, above all, the new generation of scientists who were brave enough to, like Galileo in his day, express the truth without reservation. We must be encouraged to see to what extent there are important scientific authorities who defend the idea of human inequality and the need to cultivate the best genes.

Ascending as two intertwining snakes, the double helix of DNA, discovered by the controversial English scientist James Watson, contains the key to our biological configuration. While the media, in the hands of the System, are discouraged to say that science belies human equality, dozens of leading scientists, including Nobel prizes, say the opposite. But with the exception of someone of the stature of Watson, their statements generally do not reach the mass media.

Sir Charles Galton Darwin (1887-1962), a grandson of the famous biologist and genius Charles Darwin, was an English physicist who greatly supported the eugenic mentality of his ancestor. After lecturing physics in Manchester he served his country in World War I, was a professor of physics at the University of Edinburgh and the head of a faculty at the University of Cambridge. Along with Von Verschuer, the mentor of Josef Mengele, he was the editor of the racist publication Mankind Quarterly, which articles are often cited in The Bell Curve. He was vice-president, director and president of the Eugenics Society.

‘Eugenics is the study of all agencies under social control which can improve or impair the racial quality of future generations’ (Francis J. Galton, quoted in Edwin Black, War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race, New York: Four Walls Eight Windows, 2003, 18).

Alva Myrdal (1902-1986). Mother of two children, Swedish diplomat, head of the Social Science section of UNESCO, promoter of the model of the welfare state, parliamentarian and Nobel Peace Prize in 1982.

Until 1970, the Swedish Government had about 62,000 defective individuals sterilised.

Sweden was a country famous throughout the world, not only for its purity of blood, but for being the homeland of a truly beautiful, healthy, sporty, strong and full of beautiful human specimens. With the repeal of the sterilisation decrees of the unfit and the massive influx of third world immigration, Sweden is now a country as degenerate as any western country, in serious danger that its valuable ‘Viking human capital’ may be extinguished.

This woman joins the list of prominent Scandinavian eugenicists such as Søren Hansen (anthropologist, not to be confused with the current Danish golfer), Jon Alfred Mjøen, Herman B. Lundborg, Tage Kemp, Harr Federley, and Gunnar Myrdal.

Cyril D. Darlington (1903-1981), English biologist, cytologist, botanist, geneticist and eugenicist, famous for being the man who discovered the chromosome.

A member of the Royal Society and recipient of the Darwin Medal, he launched harsh criticism of the Soviet Union’s pseudoscientific stance, denying Mendel’s laws in favour of the communist fallacy of Lysenkoism.

He opposed the 1950 UNESCO statement regarding the racial issue and refused to sign it. In 1972, together with fifty other prestigious scientists, he signed the Resolution on Scientific Freedom Regarding Human Behavior and Heredity, an agreement that ended the worrisome attempts of the System to censor and limit the studies of genetic differences. Darlington defended his colleague John R. Baker (1900-1984), biologist, cytologist and anthropologist, and author of the controversial book Raza (1974).

Konrad Lorenz (1903-1989). Austrian zoologist, ethologist, doctor in the Eastern Front who was taken prisoner by the Russians, innovative investigator of animal behaviour and Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1973.

‘Just as in cancer the best treatment is to eradicate the parasitic growth as quickly as possible, the eugenic defense against the dysgenic social effects of afflicted subpopulations is of necessity limited to equally drastic measures… When these inferior elements are not effectively eliminated from a [healthy] population, then—just as when the cells of a malignant tumor are allowed to proliferate throughout the human body—they destroy the host body as well as themselves’ (A. Chase, The Legacy of Malthus: The Social Costs of the New Scientific Racism, New York: Alfred Knopf, 1980, 349).

Roger Pearson. Born in 1927, he is still with us! He was active as a Nordicist anthropologist and English editor of pro-Nazi tendency. His Early Civilizations of the Nordic Peoples is a practical compendium of Nordic history. He founded the Northern League (a controversial Nordic organisation for having several former SS officers such as Arthur Ehrhardt and Nordicist Hans Günther) and famous racist and eugenic magazines Mankind Quarterly and Journal of Indo-European Studies, in addition to being president of the World Anti-Communist League, a notable anti-communist association that attracted a large number of ex-Nazis.

James D. Watson. Born in 1928, like Pearson he is still with us. He was active as a biologist. Very famous after the Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of the DNA molecule: the molecule that carries an organism’s genetic code.

Watson recently became famous again for starring in some controversies, such as stating that blacks have less intelligence than whites. In 2007, after the hysterical and sparkling pantomime that the Pharisee fanatics of the media mounted following his insignificant, though perfectly logical statement on Africa, Watson resigned as president of the Cold Harbor Laboratory, where he had worked 43 years.

James L. Hart (born in 1944), American Republican political activist. Hart argues that there are favoured races that invented the car and trips to outer space, and other races that are incapable of such achievements.

He supports unimpeded eugenics, opposes racial integration by claiming that if our ancestors had been ‘integrated’ centuries ago, electric light and aviation would never have appeared. He preaches the need to lead a ‘war against the poverty genes’ which, according to him, accumulate particularly in marginal areas of the West such as Detroit, a predominantly black American city, and in the Third World.

In 2004, Hart introduced himself as a representative of the Eighth Tennessee State District, but his own party boycotted him as a ‘white supremacist’.

Seeing the elephants

I am pleased that at least Goebbels Hub, a news aggregator for racially aware whites, is announcing the latest edition of The Fair Race (screenshot: here).

In my humble opinion, if the people of the Alt-Right saw the pair of elephants in the room, the movement would be strengthened to the extent of producing racial euphoria like the one Germany lived in the last century.

Julian, 76

Priscus: We were besieged for a month. A number of our deserters had gone over to the Germans and reported on our weakness. Encouraged by this, and excited at the thought of capturing a Roman Caesar, King Chnodomar marched on Sens. It was a difficult time and we owed our lives, finally, to Julian’s energy and intelligence. Though he could not make us cheerful or even confident, he at least kept us dutiful and modestly hopeful.

That night the call to arms was sounded. Men rushed to their posts on the battlements. The Germans could be seen less than half a mile away, illuminated by burning farmhouses. It had been the neighing of farm horses that had disturbed our after-dinner conversation. Had the Germans been quieter, they might have taken the city. Fortunately for us, every last one of them was drunk.

During the next few days, Julian’s mood changed from almost boisterous excitement to grim rage. He was positive that he had been deliberately abandoned. This suspicion was confirmed when a messenger arrived from Rheims to say that Marcellus would not come to our aid; he pleaded weakness. He also insisted that Julian had sufficient men to repulse the Germans.

Our rations were nearly gone when the Germans departed as suddenly as they had arrived. Long sieges bored them. Julian immediately sent to Vienne for supplies. He then recalled all his troops to Sens and the remainder of the winter was passed, if not in comfort, at least without fear of sudden annihilation. Julian also wrote Constantius a full account of Marcellus’s refusal to come to his aid. It was a splendid document. I know; Sallust and I helped to write it. So splendid was it, in fact, that unlike most state papers this one had an effect. Marcellus was recalled to Milan and after a short interval Julian finally got what he wanted, the command of the armies of Gaul.

Editor’s note:

To date I have been copying and pasting the entire novel by Gore Vidal, on Sundays, until chapter XI. The idea was obviously to invite the visitor to acquire a hard copy of the novel.

Julian’s quote on this day is the last one following that custom. From now on I will only cite those passages of Julian that have made an impression on me, omitting the others.

Must-read chapter

My main difference with Alt Right folks is that most of them cannot see a couple of elephants in their own room. As I say in the Preface to the updated edition The Fair Race’s Darkest Hour:

This collection of essays by twenty authors is the result of ten years of following closely the movement known as ‘white nationalism’ which I discovered while living in Gran Canaria: an island near Africa that belongs to Spain. My diagnosis after a decade of intensive research is that two astronomical lies spawned a narrative that has been fatally demoralising the white peoples: a millennial lie about early Christianity and a more recent lie about the Second World War.

Part I shows how Christianity, originated in Judaism, during an ISIS-like fanatical takeover of the classical world destroyed the temples, most statues and libraries in the 4th and 5th centuries of the Common Era. Through Christianity Judea thus triumphed over Rome after the disastrous Jewish-Roman wars of previous centuries. Another article of this section also mentions a gigantic genocide that the Allies perpetrated in Germany: the first Jew-wise racially awakened Aryan nation in Western history. Inspired in a passage of The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, this section also includes a subject that I consider paramount to spare the fair race from extinction: the development of the inner soul as a lesson in humility to cure the Anglo-Saxons of the false narrative with which their System bombards us over Hitler and the Nazis. Both the Judeo-Christian destruction of the Greco-Roman world, and the Holocaust of Germans in 1944-1947, are the best-kept secrets in Western history. Studying these events suggests that the current anti-white, pro-Jewish narrative is based on a fantastic inversion of two historical calamities: the ultimate cause of the West’s darkest hour.

As long as the First Amendment hangs on a thread, most racially conscious whites won’t take the trouble to download or print long PDFs. They will simply continue reading the alt-right websites. But online books like The Fair Race (PDF: here) will become handy after the System takes our sites down—if they are now properly saved in our hard disks.

The Fair Race consists of 710 pages with many colour illustrations. It is divided in ten parts and a few appendixes. New visitors who want to become regular commenters must read Part I to see the two elephants. If you find it sufficiently intriguing and don’t want to read onscreen the rest of the book, or print it for a ring binder, consider obtaining a hard copy here. One never knows when the System will drop its hammer on the Gutenberg press of the 21st century (last year, this site was taken down for a couple of days; there’s a backup of it here).
