Power & Losing

Vincent Van Gogh, "The Sower (after Millet)," 1889

Vincent Van Gogh, “The Sower (after Millet),” 1889

2,257 words

We have been without genuine freedom of speech or association for so long that we don’t even know what they mean anymore. Ordinary whites are completely clueless. They’re anti-white racists and neo-communists because that’s what the System tells them to be. From morning to evening and birth to death that’s all they hear. They’re denizens of Oceania.

White racialists, an iconoclastic subset, think it means addressing a miniscule audience on a tiny website or individual blog, or organizing six people for a street protest—until a writer or activist is taken down by the System, at which point remaining racialists gleefully join the Left-wing mob in kicking the helpless victim to a bloody pulp. He didn’t get it! He said the wrong things! He acted the wrong way! I have witnessed this unedifying spectacle again and again over the decades.

Any given Counter-Currents article I write will be seen by roughly 1,000-2,000 people. Seen by (i.e., clicked on), not necessarily read or agreed with; only a small number will actually read a piece with some degree of sympathy and understanding, or have a seed planted that will eventually take root and grow, which is the best one can hope for.

A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched; and since they had no root they withered away. Other seeds fell upon thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.

Such are the hard facts of the World Wide Web. At best, my variable little audience is equivalent to one very small town in the Midwest. Like a politician who is cognizant of every single vote (and, believe it or not, those not representing one-party districts are), I value every single reader (excluding the evil ones paid to monitor the Right). It’s not that. Rather, it is imperative to keep things in proper perspective.

The situation is especially strange in that in addition to theoretical access to a worldwide audience of English readers, market forces—supply and demand—are in my favor. I fill an unmet need. In a genuine marketplace of ideas there would be some demand, certainly more than there is now, for suppressed facts, information, and opinions. But this natural demand is not there. The absence of a greater positive response is like the dog that didn’t bark in “Silver Blaze,” alerting the perceptive observer that something was seriously wrong. (“I had grasped the significance of the silence of the dog, for one true inference invariably suggests others,” Sherlock Holmes noted.) In our case the primary culprit is disparate power, and the refusal of elites to play by the rules.

Conversely, those who hate my race—and I mean hate it—broadcast their hatred repeatedly, many times daily, to billions of people worldwide: a distinctly unnatural state of affairs in an ostentatiously “anti-racist” culture. Thousands and thousands of people make exceptionally good livings doing this. They monopolize not only the mass media of communications with their racist and totalitarian bile, but educational systems, governments, legal systems, and other institutions as well—everywhere. This, also, is not natural. It is exceedingly strange.

Such a lopsided disparity of power can have only one possible outcome in terms of who wins, who loses, and why. Therefore, I never scratch my head, stumped, wondering blankly: “Why are whites doing this to themselves?” I’d be dense, dishonest, or willfully blind to express such puzzlement.

With all due respect to race and genetics, environment is also important. Psychological plasticity seems nearly limitless. Human beings are malleable.

In order to survive, whites must begin thinking in terms of power. We’re where we are because of power, and only a radical shift in power will change that. Words and images released into an artificially-maintained vacuum will not. They need to regularly reach millions (nay, billions) of people, and be just as vicious and uncompromising in content as those of Jews and the Left.

Whites can stick to Marquess of Queensberry rules, but their destroyers will not. They fight dirty. By way of deception they destroy freedom and commit genocide. And, for now, the world is their oyster.

Even as 2013 draws to a close, the Internet is viewed by some as a game changer. Unfortunately, that opportunity, if it ever existed, is gone. Control of the new medium is already in the hands of the same crowd that formerly maneuvered its way into dominance over motion pictures, radio, and television.

The largest websites are media and e-commerce domains generating billions of dollars in revenue annually, and tightly linked to repressive governments, the ADL, the SPLC, the National Security Agency (NSA), and other sinister organizations. All actively suppress speech, even in the US, the only country left where Jews have not expressly outlawed it. And that was only due to the foresight and principle of European leaders who lived 228 years ago!

The new Internet kings propagate the same old Hollywood-New York-Washington “values” on a scale that dwarfs anything impecunious racialists under constant pressure from Jews and government can muster. Truth alone will not set us free.

As one man long ago observed:

The fundamental error of the right wing—that sweet reason will change the world and save us from the Jewish tyrants.

Reason is still an infant in human affairs, a precious and rare development found in the mutational brains of an infinitesimal minority of homo sapiens. And even the few geniuses able to exercise genuine, independent reason are almost entirely incapable of acting in accordance with the dictates of that reason—which is one of the reasons so many of them end up as failures in a world which does not appreciate them or their reason.

It is FORCE, POWER, STRENGTH which rules the world, from the ebb and flow of the tides to the decision of your neighbor to join the Rotary. Only a negligible fringe of oddball humans change their mind as a result of being convinced by a superior argument. The overwhelming masses, including the mass of today’s “intellectuals” [emphasis added], change their minds only in order to CONFORM. In other words, the minds of the vast majority ALWAYS bow to the strongest opinion—the opinion which brings rewards and avoids punishment.

The right wing examines its reasons and arguments and facts and finds them true and good—as they may be. They then become outraged [or hopelessly befuddled] when the slobs next door cannot see and appreciate this rightness and, very probably, throw them out of the house for preaching “hate.” But this is only as things are. The slobs will hold whatever opinion seems to show the most strength and WILL TO POWER. They are completely, hopelessly female in their approach to reason and always, ALWAYS prefer strength to “rightness.”

This is a “secret” the Jews learned long ago.

Another voice from the past:

Things are very bad indeed, but they are far from hopeless. Only a people or a nation that gives itself up for lost is truly and irrevocably lost. There is a bloody and terrible ordeal ahead of us, and many will perish—but our race can still be saved, and that, in the long run, is all that counts.

Do not be discouraged by the indifference of the people around you. Remember, the great mass of people have always been like that and always will be. When the Christians are ahead they cheer for the Christians, and when the lions are ahead they cheer for the lions. They have no understanding or concern for anything but the present and for what they see as directly affecting their comfort, welfare, or security.

But the masses do not make history. [Again, “the masses” includes academics, intellectuals, and high-IQ and socially successful people generally. It is not a class thing.] That is and always has been the task of the few. Those few must embody in themselves a majority of will and determination. They must know what they want and be willing to do whatever is necessary to achieve their goal.

Today the old order of things is crumbling into ruin, and the world will never again be restored to what it was before. But a new order will eventually emerge from the wreckage of the old.

It is only too late to save the present order from final collapse. It is not too late to begin building the new.

How many are “the few”? Here’s the assessment of a formidable achiever, also deceased, whose judgment on such matters cannot be taken lightly, much less dismissed out of hand: “In my view, when there are nine thousand men in a country who are capable of facing prison from loyalty to an idea, this idea remains a living one.”

For conceptual purposes, this might be adopted as a provisional benchmark since, implicitly, the reference is to a minority existing amidst a hostile majority in a Jewish-Leftist state. It imparts concrete substance to the idea of “the few” whose task it is to embody within themselves a majority of will and determination.

Of course, the speaker was probably referring to an extraordinary level of commitment, on the order of an Anders Breivik or Timothy McVeigh. Even so, he added, “And as long as a man [i.e., presumably one man] is left to carry the flag, nothing is lost. Faith moves mountains.”

Each of the three men just quoted was an optimist. They said so explicitly and their words and deeds bore them out. Yet each “failed.” I qualify “failed,” because in a larger spiritual sense (as far as white survival is concerned) they were all successes given the insurmountable odds they faced.

Moreover, the battle in which they were engaged still rages. It is world-historical and spans generations. The outcome has yet to be determined. Although it would be wrong to say that they represented—or desired to represent—the forces of Light, they most certainly opposed the forces of Evil on the race issue.

God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea and rides upon the storm.

Jews and the Left focus societal rage on specific targets. They deliberately demonize individuals, organizations, movements, and ideas. Those on whom they train their sights are invariably depicted as utterly evil. There is no gray, no complexity, no “other side” of an issue. Everything is crass, simple, and stupid: “Axis of evil” (12.3 million Google results), “The Butcher of Lyon,” “The Angel of Death,” “Chemical Ali.” They understand that nuance and evenhandedness are the enemies of hate. Their most brazen and startling innovation, perhaps, is to so often depict good people, in fact the best, as evil, and the evil as good, in order to traduce justice.

The Left obsessively studies its enemies, spies on them, and meticulously identifies and catalogues their strengths and, especially, their ordinary human frailties. Finally, they isolate and destroy the poor creatures without mercy or remorse. Pitiless and cruel, they enjoy hurting and humiliating people.

The Jew who crushed the young life out of blonde Rachel Corrie with his bulldozer is paradigmatic. (He ran over her twice.) An Israeli military investigation and an Israeli court both exonerated the killer, who was demolishing a Palestinian family’s home. The court rejected the American parents’ civil suit against the State of Israel, contemptuously claiming Jews were not to blame for the girl’s death. The parents had sued for a symbolic one US dollar in damages.

Rachel Corrie moments before her death, March 16, 2003

Rachel Corrie moments before her death, March 16, 2003

Many, many Jews had a holiday in their heart when they witnessed Corrie’s murder. It is the sort of thing that fulfills their most cherished, bloodthirsty fantasies.

And not only Jews, but the Jeffrey Harts, John McCains, and Lindsey Grahams of every Gentile race as well. For the admirers of Jews are Legion.

Germans, hardcore anti-Communists, Rhodesians, South Africans, Southerners, believing Christians (not many of those left anymore), Holocaust revisionists, broken 90-year-old WWII veterans, white racialists, opponents of replacement migration—even the Tea Party, “conservatives,” and Republicans!—are mercilessly subjected to the same brutal, Soviet-style treatment.

In the process of destroying flesh and blood individuals and civic organizations, they simultaneously destroy ideas, organic social movements, and the spiritual forces behind them. Their modus operandi has proven spectacularly successful, so much so that we now wallow in the detritus, the civilizational shambles, the spiritual toilet that is the natural expression of their race soul.

The forces for good will make a great leap forward when they start thinking concretely and realistically in terms of power, of specific enemies and oppressors, and act accordingly.

As far as the messages people are permitted to think and hear go, why should today’s rulers be the only ones with a voice? Why should they possess a monopoly on violence? Why should they be permitted to shut everybody else up, jail, assault, torture, murder, assassinate, and even commit genocide against anyone they please? Why should they, and they alone, destroy any nation they choose, jailing, humiliating, murdering, and even sodomizing fallen leaders in their insatiable quest for world dominion?


Like Communism, this is not a natural state of affairs.

    As Schmitt reminds us, the first order of business is openly identifying your political enemies. Most either don’t know where to begin in that regard or are too afraid to honestly take such a position, to live with a permanent target on their back which is basically inevitable. What many fail to grasp is that WE all have been identified and marked for some kind of punishment, including torture and death, especially Orthodox, Kinist or other hardline Christians. It does not matter if you merely want to be left alone, care deeply about the politics or long-term goals of WN or not. That is the reality and the longer we deny this, the more dangerous the situation becomes. For many, it will be too late when they finally “get it”, but what else is new?

    One of your best pieces, Andrew.

    I am one of those “believing” Christians (an evangelical). Indeed my doctrinal identification is with the 99% Protestant folk that made up the founding peoples. And it is true and known everywhere that this is a “post-Christian” era. Not of course that there are so few of us left (though there are fewer percentagewise). But that we are the premierly targeted out-group in the sphere of the culture of power and megaphone. When I speak in explicitly racialist terms from time-to-time in a setting so typically irenic in tone and mood such as Sunday school in a main-line denominational church that I attend I find with seeming no exception a lifting of the head in startled recognition of authenticity and a ready agreement which tells me these beleaguered (the best of) people indeed merely need leadership. They have so very little of it these days. Not of course in their theological orthodoxy but in the today of a fiercely pronounced era of the servival of themselves and especially of their progeny (I have 13 grandchildren). We in the traditional American church are ready for such leadership. We would be the first to rally with the minute-men of our forbears. Thank you sir for a stirring excellent piece!

    Great piece dying for footnotes. I’d really like to know the authors of those quotes. They are reminiscent of what Simpson said generations ago, that we were finished and the Jew was going to have his way with us – in the Soviet Gulag sense. But there would be survivors and the chance for rebirth. If we had accepted the worst back then and acted upon it, it might have turned out to be a failed prophecy. But we were addicted to silver linings and now the Disaster looms before us.

      In order:

      George Lincoln Rockwell (“reason is still an infant in human affairs”)

      William L. Pierce (“must embody in themselves a majority of will and determination”)

      Adolf Hitler (“9,000 men”/”a man left to carry the flag”)

      Poet William Cowper’s hymn “God Moves in a Mysterious Way” (1774) can be heard sung by a choir here: It is included in the Lutheran Book of Worship, the Lutheran Service Book, and Lutheran Worship, among other Protestant hymnals.

        Thank you. From what I know of these Men, they saw themselves as fighting for the Light, though as an agnostic, Pierce might have said he was on the side of Evolution instead.

    I thought the quotes were great also. I guess that periodically, its normal to experience a bout of frustration (or even despair) at the lack of obvious signs of significant progress of White Nationalism. It can be useful to stand back a little and see the situation in perspective. WN is an effort that is a current in a greater historical process, the survival of the European gene pool. God and nature wish for and create struggle, wanting their creations to fight against challenges and adversity, overcome them and be stronger and better for it. “He who will not fight does not deserve to live”.

    Like all survival battles for all organisms, there have been times of darkness, times when the lands controlled by the race were taken by others, and even times when it appeared to many at the time that there was a significant possibility that the race would be conquered and possibly destroyed. That didn’t happen because there is great strength in the gene pool, and this potential remains, though dormant.

    For a human being viewing the current crisis period, it does indeed appear to be potentially the end of the race. There are numerous trends continuing that will have very negative consequences to the race; immigration, miscegenation, a hostile elite, and on and on. A human being operates on a fairly short time horizon, a year seems like a long time, a decade a very long time, and a century an eternity. But, this historical process is numbered in millenia, has proceeded for a score of millenia, and hopefully will continue for dozens of more future millenia.

    It is useful to remember that while the European gene pool is not organized, and is in a period of decline, it is very large, on the order of many hundreds of millions of individuals, and bear many millions of new babies each year. Populations can recover quickly, as a single healthy woman can bear over a dozen babies. Even if the current situation were to continue as is for another century or 2, the world-wide European population, though shrunken numerically and in living space, would still be very large and viable, with many very talented and capable potential leaders. While there may not be a large number of official White Nationalists, every man and woman bearing healthy White children is a soldier in the greater cause. While there is no current large WN organization in North America, there are many millions of Whites who are aware that something is very wrong with this country. It is not accurate to envision the entire race as anesthetized sheep – they are not fools for the most part.

    The current period of dominance by Semites is transitory in this historical process. The population of atheist Jews is actually in a fairly steep decline, with birthrates and miscegenation. They and their young are being corrupted by the culture they have created. Their creation, a decadent anti-European civilization, is not sustainable.

    While the future is unpredictable, we do know that this ancient historical process will continue. The race will enter a period of interesting times by the end of this century, with an era of persecuted European minorities, the decline of the U.S. as a world power, the ebbing of the Pax Americana and political instability. For a human being, with a finite life on this earth, it can be agonizing to see the decay of a decade, and be relatively powerless to stop it. Their are daily crimes committed against individual Europeans, without obvious justice, and this chafes against our nature. But this is not a situation that will last forever. The wise man remains patient, continues to do what he can in what capacities he is able, in for the long haul.

      Yes, agonizing is the word. What is unbearable to me is the almost supernatural foolishness of Whites. Our strength is all on the outside – inside we are silly putty. Macho rugby players reduced to tears when Mandela put on their jersey. No other race produces people so unfit for the struggle of life. Decadence is one thing, but this just goes beyond it into another dimension. A few years ago, I would have resented the portrayal of the Blonde Lannisters (Game of Thrones) as a vicious stereotype. But I am so sick of White weakness and goofiness that I enjoyed their cunning and ruthlessness – especially since in real life, the more Nordic means the more PC crazy. The Long View is Medicine indeed. The coming generation is sure to be harder since being softer is simply not possible.

      RE: the decline of the U.S. as a world power, the ebbing of the Pax Americana and political instability.

      The rise of the U.S. as a world power (under Jewish auspices) is what gave us the Jewish Golden Age (1913 – 20??) and the mess we are in. This, now, is running its course and playing out. The future will not be just be more of the past. Stay tuned.

    Why must you be so negative? The world is waking up right now! I only became awakened under a year ago. Not everybody is an author or academic. The problem with the right is the same problem as your article, it and they are depressing. The Holohaux is being debunked internationally. Everybody, and I do mean everybody, is naming the Jew as the culprit. Racialism is replacing environmentalism. I could go on and on. I know it must have been hard for all of you to keep the faith for so long by yourselves but please be patient with us “slow learners.” White people of all different ethnicities are uniting right now against our enemies and it’s beautiful. It will also be the most powerful force in the universe. Thank you for your article.

      Thanks for your comment. I wasn’t aware that the article came off as particularly negative. My intent was to be realistic, to emphasize what the Communists referred to as the “correlation of forces.” Even if one restricts oneself purely to words, the asymmetry is . . . massive.

      Please understand that it is necessary to win. This means always taking power into account, including the power of the Word.

      I’m glad you discovered the movement, and are enthusiastic. After an embarrassingly slow process I finally arrived where I am around 1986. So I have seen a lot. Moreover, I have paid close attention to the rise and fall of individuals, groups, and organizations. And I have studied the movement as it was in the past—the 19th century, the 20th century, and so forth.

      I am old enough to have personally witnessed the most revolutionary, rapid, and massive case of deliberate racial and cultural destruction the world has ever seen. It is pure evil, and it is growing stronger every day. One must not mistake opposition to certain Israeli policies for opposition to Jews, because that’s not what it is. (The Jews lie about that, of course, like they lie about everything.)

      I hope that 27 years from now you will not have given up and dropped out, especially if by that time you have experienced even a tiny bit of the brutality the forces of evil can visit upon you at will.

      The movement is in the worst shape that I have seen it during my lifetime—and that’s saying a lot. It is hard to discern where a revolutionary constituency could even be located.

      Yet nothing less will do. Our enemies have seen to that.

      The white race has truly had a number done on it. Its members have not acquitted themselves well.

    Look your seed bears fruit. I was your garden variety Liberal who evolved into more more radical iterations of Leftism. Eventually finding Post Left Anarchism most attractive to me although always strongly Anti-Zionist a more honest deconstruction of Judaism and its broader influence on The West seemed necessary to me, and watching the external mechanics of this process is enlightening shall we say. I have been made aware of an entire world of thought that I previously did not know existed over the past few years evolution. Though not a WN I can only question why the left fetishizes the preservation of indigenous cultures but the concern ends when the indigene is European. I detest this sort of hypocrisy, I detest the eschewing of class politics with cultural Marxist claptrap and Identity semiotics. In any regard I thank you for widening my epistemology so to speak.
