A Revolutionary Act

This essay is from Michael Polignano’s book Taking Our Own Side, available in a limited, signed and personalized hardcover edition here.

German translation here

I believe that the fall of our multi-racial, multi-cultural regime will closely resemble the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. It will occur just as suddenly and unexpectedly, and will spring from equally humble acts of courage, responsibility, and good will.

At the beginning of 1989, Communism seemed invincible. It was guarded by the greatest apparatus of coercion and terror the world has ever seen, an apparatus that had murdered tens of millions of people and subjugated countless others. Communism also controlled the second greatest propaganda machine ever created—second only to the “free” media of the West.

None of the experts predicted the imminent fall of Communism. And they surely would have scornfully dismissed such a prediction. Yet fall it did.

Communism fell because it was founded on a lie. Although few believed this lie, the regime held on to power by intimidating most people into keeping their doubts to themselves. Each individual thought that he was alone because he was afraid to express his doubts to others and others were afraid to express theirs to him. The system fell when enough people took the risk of speaking against its lie, enough that the regime hesitated to crush them. In that moment of hesitation, a space of free communication was opened, millions discovered that they were not alone, the repression and isolation collapsed, and freedom was born.

America’s regime is based on the same fundamental lie as Communism: the lie of human equality. Only rather than expressing this lie through a command economy and the suppression of individual entrepreneurship our regime expresses this lie through policies premised on two phony ideas. First, the idea that racial groups cannot differ on average in innate quality. Second, the idea that any observed differences in societal outcomes between racial groups result solely from past or present oppression of one group by another.

We White Nationalists are not alone in believing that racial equality is a lie and that a multi-racial society based on it won’t work. I am convinced that many outside the White Nationalist community believe it too. The present regime has victimized virtually every White, and millions are aware of this fact. But most have been intimidated into silence and think that they are alone. Or worse, they have been convinced by the media that only unsavory or outright dangerous people share their beliefs: “rednecks,” skinheads, and bizarre Hitler cultists who live in “compounds.”

Ideas are not judged by logic alone. They are also judged by the individuals who espouse them. The most radical ideas will seem plausible to some simply if they are expressed in a measured way by a socially “respectable” spokesman—i.e., someone who is polite, well-spoken, educated, and of manifestly good character.

Desegregation triumphed not only because segregationist ideas were dismissed as false, but also because the segregationists themselves were portrayed as ignorant, inbred, and stupid. Intelligent and successful defenders of segregation never received any media attention. And to this day, people associate racism with stupidity and ignorance, even though it is the only scientifically-informed and morally-enlightened position to take.

One cannot readily counter these stereotypes through the anonymity and impersonality of the internet, making face-to-face persuasion necessary.

One of the most important subversive, revolutionary acts a White Nationalist can do is creating a space for free, in-person discussion of racial inequality and the threat posed to White survival by multi-racialism, multi-culturalism, and unlimited immigration.

Begin with your friends and family. Some of them might already agree with you. How will you know, unless you are willing to take the risk of talking to them? I am amazed at how many White Nationalists refuse to talk about their beliefs to their families, even to their children!

Run through a list of people you know. Ask yourself which ones live with their eyes open, which ones have direct experience with non-Whites, which ones have the courage to buck social trends. Then all you need do is take them aside, one by one, in a comfortable, safe, and private place and speak frankly. If one responds defensively, according to script, don’t give up too early or too easily. Try to bring the conversation down to the level of personal experiences. Most people are not interested in abstract theories unless they can be shown to explain their own concrete experiences.

More often than not, I suspect you will be surprised at how receptive your friends and family really are. We have the truth on our side, and plenty of thinking individuals see through the lie but have no one with whom to share their feelings.

Even if a friend or relative rejects everything you say about race, he will still have learned important lessons. First, he will have learned that intelligent, articulate, respectable people are racists, so it is all right if he is one too. Second, he will have learned that some are unafraid to dissent from racial orthodoxy. Third, he will have learned that he can go to you if he ever wishes to discuss matters further. Just make sure to leave the door open to future conversations.

Eventually, after a series of individual conversations, you might want to get a few individuals together for more in-depth discussions. And once you feel comfortable talking to friends, develop your skills in talking to strangers.

Those who do not feel quite ready to speak out should at least become good listeners. Being receptive to the awakening racial consciousness of others is enormously valuable. Simply cultivate a reputation for being “politically incorrect” and open to heretical ideas, and you will soon hear radical ideas coming from the most unexpected sources.

Now that the holidays are upon us, a lot of us get to see friends and relatives we don’t ordinarily see. Don’t spend this holiday season gorged on turkey and vegetating in front of a football game. The holidays are a time when we can reflect on who we are. Traditional gatherings remind us that we have a collective past and a collective future. They are ideal for having a serious conversation about our future and what threatens it.

You know the truth, so pass it on, and remember George Orwell’s oft-quoted words: “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

    We are growing implicitly. Let’s help direct our White Humanity into explicitness.

    It’s easy. Anytime you want to start a WN warm up conversation, just ask “What do you think we should do to help African Americans reduce the crime rates in their communities, as well as helping to reduce their out of wedlock birth rates?”

    That sounds good and liberal, but it gives the listener an opportunity to offer opinions on black crime and black hypersexuality, but in a context where if they really do believe the Equality Lie, they put themselves in the position of having to explain why blacks refuse to live up to Civilized Equality. If they are Ordrung, they will let their Race Realism show, otherwise known as bigoted racism, which is the only healthy option for us right now.

    If you can get someone to even slightly acknowledge that blacks’ behavior sustains our stereotypes for them, then you have your opening to recruit a new member into the growing WN community.

    Probably the best you can hope for is that they will say something about “typical” this or “typical” that, while shaking their heads or shrugging their shoulders, and the worst you’ll get is “We need to do more outreach with better information.”

    If you get the worst, have fun. Ask them what new information they’d use in reaching out to the blacks. Ask them if they’d first investigate when and where that same info. has been attempted, at what cost, and to what rate of success or failure. Ask them what they could do to convert any past failure into future successes.

    You’ll have them thinking either about the limits of possibility or the greater depth of their obligation than they yet have acknowledged… “we have more work to do, because our work is unfinished…”

    I asked a liberal girl, who is convinced I’m a racist, duh, that “If you took all your privilege and resources, how much would you be willing to sacrifice in order to improve the black community?” She said “Lots of it.” I said, “And if you didn’t get the results you expected, if things went badly, how much more would you spend?” “All of it,” she said automatically.

    Then she started thinking about my question and her ridiculous and obviously lying answers, given that she likes to shop, and she quickly changed the topic to how many slaves were “slaughtered,” and she got the Jews in there too, who were “slaughtered.” She said it was SEVEN million who were “slaughtered.”

    She realized that she was sounding like an idiot on the black question, but she didn’t reform through emancipating herself from the Lie- she just got madder at me for being a “raciss.”

    Lesson learned: Until a woman actually suffers a personal visit from an emissary from the black community and gets almost robbed, raped, or murdered, she will always be able to afford to believe the pretty illusion of Equality and in our White Duty to do more and more.

    Given women’s weakness for sounding compassionate at the least, we should not waste our time trying to convert those who have not yet been scared or hurt, or who don’t have friends who have yet similarly suffered close contact with the Diversity Curse.

    Maybe besides our own White Nationalism advocacy, there may be a White Revolution beginning right now that will live and thrive without our high-brained efforts.

    Assume for a moment that Comprehensive Immigration Reform, giving citizenship amnesty and the vote to millions, maybe 20 million or more brown, hispano-mongrel, uneducated, uneducable criminals, is an inevitability. Progressives’ greatest successes have been achieved on the tactic of Fabianism: “We’ll just do it because we can, and it will entrench us in power. We call it ‘doing the right thing,’ add lots of moral imperatives and the words ‘should’ and ‘ought,’ and then demand that everyone else catch up with us, and if they don’t, the facts of our successes will render their arguments outdated. We can make them obsolete by calling them all ‘bigoted hate mongers and racists, just like the Nazis were.'”

    What hope should we have that free amnesty won’t happen? If White Americans will allow Integration and Civil Rights to destroy their White Republic for the sake of the inferior blacks, then on what basis of courage and strength will they stop the surrendering of what’s left of their White Liberty to the Third World swarms who crash our borders with immunity?

    But this time, it may be different, and that could give us the long-needed White Revolution. We are in dire financial circumstances with no real hopes of solution in the future. The debt is a problem of such catastrophic proportions, that all you can predict with safety is a catastrophe. Our private savings will be either wiped out through inflation or taxation or both.

    Keynesians want it that way- no private savings- and that’s what they are giving to us- wealth depletion during the economic crisis. They will ramp all back it back up once they have made enough of us dependent upon them. Read Keynes At Harvard and you will know all about it. The reason you don’t see Obamafro panicking at job losses is because he wants the job losses. He gets more power as we get more desperate and willing to agree to “shared sacrifice”. The fix is in. Read what John C. Calhoun warned us about party politics. It’s all come true, but now it’s coming finally true.

    If amnesty and the vote get pushed on us just before the collapse, you will see a White Awakening of the Race Soul, and then you will see real solutions and the breakup into ethnostates, the most bitter and ready to defend of which will be Whites who once were the haves and suffered seeing what they had destroyed for the sake of the non whites and the White Elite thugs.

    Europeans can be very, very cruel when pushed far enough, and we get that far when we are betrayed into poverty for the benefit of those who were born into poverty.

    I’m reading Rosenberg’s Myth of the Twentieth Century, and it is warming my memories of Savitri Devi’s beautiful prose. I assume, but don’t know, that Rosenberg was channeling pure Nietzscheanism. Do any of our Nietzsche experts recognize these ideas, and if from Nietzsche, care to suggest the source? Any opinions on the value of Rosenberg to WN?

    I offer this snip because I predict that what Rosenberg’s writing about may become a spontaneous eruption in the White Community, Lord willing, once the Mexican criminal invasion becomes a newly legitimized voting bloc for the non white and unionized political coalition, i.e. Obamacrats.

    What the Jews were to Germany, the Mexican chaos will become to us; not in equal form, but in the effect on our collective White psyche.

    Except for the Race Traitors — they won’t feel it. All they will feel is raging, extreme hatred for those who appear as having some special insight, a freedom to comprehend Reality. Our freedom from forcing ourselves to believe lies and from the psychological fatigue that comes with self-willed delusion about Race Differences will become intolerable to them. Their trying to force themselves to deny all that their senses tell them about race makes them insane and dangerous. We will become the targets in their lashing out in agony and envy. They must make us suffer the cost of our racism as a tonic to reduce their own pains of psychosis. They have no limits to what atrocities they will subject us to. We are expendable, and the process of their expending us gives temporary soothing to their churning anguish.

    Have you ever been having a bad day and got word that one of your enemies is having a worse day? Helps, doesn’t it?

    Our job will become finding ways to make them targets of their amnesty pet non whites before we become easy targets of their pets and them.

    The Great War, as the beginning of a world revolution in all domains, has revealed the tragic fact that, although millions sacrificed their lives, this sacrifice was to the advantage of forces other than those for which the armies were ready to die. The dead of the war were victims of a catastrophic epoch that had lost all its values, but at the same time — and this is something which begins to be grasped in Germany today, even if so far by few — the martyrs of a new dawn, of a new faith. The blood which died, begins to live. In its mystical sign the cells of the German Folkish soul renew themselves. Past and present suddenly appear in a new light, and for the future there results a new mission. History and the task of the future no longer signify the struggle of class against class or the conflict between one church dogma and another, but the settlement between blood and blood, race and race, Folk and Folk. And that means: the struggle of spiritual values against each other.

    However, the values of the racial soul, which stand as driving forces behind this new image of the world, have not yet become a living consciousness. Soul means race seen from within. And, conversely, race is the external side of a soul. To awaken the racial soul to life means to recognise its highest value, and, under its dominance, to allot to other values their organic position in the State, in art, and in religion. That is the task of our century; to create a new human type out of a new view of life. And for this, courage is needed; courage of each single individual, courage of the entire generation growing up, indeed of many following generations. For chaos has never been mastered by those without courage, and a world has never been built by cowards. Whoever wishes to go forward, must therefore also burn bridges behind him. Whoever sets out on a great journey, must leave old household goods behind. Whoever strives for what is highest, must turn his back on what is lesser. And to all doubts and questions the new man of the coming great German Reich knows only one answer: I alone will triumph!

    In the old Soviet Union the Samizdat meme was “If Communism is the workers paradise then why do they have barbed wire, mine fields, machine gunners, and attack dogs to keep the workers from escaping said worker’s paradise. In todays USSA the Samizdat meme is “If DIVERSITY is so great then why did they have to force it on White Americans at bayonet point and why do we have so much White flight trying to escape from said wonderful Forced DIVERSITY.” On the day that average White working class Americans, the ones who keep America running, decide they don’t want to play the Anti-White Elite’s game of White Genocide anymore its over for these vermin.
