A Robertson Roundup: Remembering Wilmot Robertson (April 16, 1915 – July 8, 2005)
Wilmot Robertson has been a perennial favorite in these pages, and it’s time to provide a list of relevant links and articles published over the years.
The ever-intriguing fact about Robertson is that he thrived for decades as an original, often contrarian, thinker on the racialist Right; yet he remained a man of mystery, known to few. And that was no accident. (more…)
Instauration: Profound Insights for Troubled Times, Part II
Part I here
As the 1980s ended and the 1990s began, racial issues became more and more prevalent in the United States and around the world. Whites who could, of course, continued to move to the suburbs to avoid diversity and multiracialism. But it was becoming harder and harder to escape racial realities in a changing America. As always, Instauration offered clear-headed commentary on the unrelenting war against whites. (more…)
Instauration: Profound Insights for Troubled Times, Part I
Instauration was a race realist newsletter published monthly from 1975 to 2000. I subscribed for the last two years and fondly remember receiving the publication in the mail. Edited by Wilmot Robertson, the author of The Dispossessed Majority, Instauration was a compendium of racial news, happenings, data, history, philosophy, analysis, and more. (more…)
Editor’s Note: The following is a subchapter from Wilmot Robertson’s book, The Ethnostate. It may provide some encouragement in these trying times. For more on Robertson, see Spencer J. Quinn’s review of The Ethnostate and all posts tagged Wilmot Robertson.
Pessimism is a vital ingredient of tragedy, which is the highest form of drama and the dominant theme in great literature, art, and music. No optimist could possibly have created characters like Oedipus, Lear, and Faust. Still, optimism is a major force for great deeds in the real world. Few will struggle to perform heroic feats unless they feel that “the world,” (more…)
The Ethnostate: An Unblinkered Prospectus on the Art of Statecraft
Ostara Publications, 2018 (1992)
I’d call Wilmot Robertson’ The Ethnostate the Farmer’s Almanac of the Dissident Right, but that would make it seem too quaint. Really, it is an incisive and spot-on encapsulation of everything that is besieging white civilization in the West collected in a slim volume of sterling aphorisms and impeccable reasoning. (more…)
Four Hundred Years Together:
Wilmot Robertson on “The Negroes”
The New York Times has undertaken a “1619 Project” designed to place “the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the center of the national narrative.” In other words, more of the same. While the Times presents the usual fairy tales about put-upon yet angelic blacks being oppressed by malevolent whites, at least one of our thinkers would agree that blacks have a central place in American history.

The writings of Francis Parker Yockey have fascinated the far Right for a half-century and more. I would argue that the person most responsible for this popularity is the late classics professor Revilo P. Oliver. While Prof. Oliver had little practical input in the distribution of Yockey writings (that credit would go more to Willis Carto and George Dietz), it was Oliver’s imprimatur that lent Yockey a gravitas that ensured he would be cherished as something other than the author of some controversial, obscurantist tracts.

Today is the 11th anniversary of the death of Wilmot Robertson (April 16, 1915–July 8, 2005), author of The Dispossessed Majority (originally published 1972; several revisions over the next two decades) and publisher/editor of Instauration magazine, a print-only monthly that flourished from 1975 to 2000. For many people now middle-aged or beyond, these were their first, or most eye-opening, introduction to intellectual racialism.
Six Essential Works on White Nationalism
A reader asked me to compile lists of essential works on White Nationalism, race realism, the Jewish question, the New Right, and other topics. This is the first installment.
White Nationalism is about the creation of racially homogeneous homelands for all white peoples. White Nationalism is, therefore, incompatible with all types of multiracial societies, (more…)
W 1897 r. Robert Lewis Dabney przewidział tryumf ruchu sufrażystek w oparciu o własną ocenę historii i charakteru jedynej siły sprzeciwiającej się prawom wyborczym kobiet – konserwatystów z północnych stanach USA:
Jest to partia, która nigdy niczego nie konserwuje. (more…)
Although Instauration pieces are not signed, based on style and content, I believe this obituary for Martin Heidegger was written by Wilmot Robertson.
Martin Heidegger (1889-1976)
As far as we know there is only one atheistic philosopher whose thought ever triggered religious resonances in the soul of his readers. (more…)
En 1897, Robert Lewis Dabney prophétisa le triomphe du suffrage féminin, en se basant sur son estimation de l’histoire et du caractère de la seule force opposé à lui, le conservatisme nordique :
« C’est un parti qui ne conserve jamais rien. (more…)
This week marks the 40th anniversary of President Richard M. Nixon’s (R.) resignation from office on August 9, 1974 as a consequence of the media-orchestrated Watergate affair. To mark the occasion, America’s Last Conservative and longtime Nixon aide Patrick Buchanan, increasingly productive in the book field in his twilight years, has published a new volume, The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose from Defeat to Create the New Majority (2014).

In retrospect, Aryans appear to have harbored a naïve faith in the natural relationship between reputation, fame, and merit. True, our conceptions served us well enough in our own world. But that was prior to the Age of Defamation. Now we see that fame, reputation, and moral worth can be completely unrelated. It is child’s play for dominant, cunning, and unscrupulous elites to destroy reputations, fabricate evidence and opinions, and reverse the judgments of history—and have their constructs stick, and be universally accepted.

Kevin MacDonald on Wilmot Robertson
These somewhat disorganized thoughts were my contribution to a panel discussion of Robertson at a private gathering in October 2013.
Wilmot Robertson was first recommended to my attention by Sam Francis over lunch one day in 2003. The next time I saw him, unwilling to leave the matter to my initiative, he simply thrust a copy of The Dispossessed Majority into my hand. (more…)
Essential elements of modern nationalism existed in early times in the form of tribalism. In fact, modern European nationalism is often excoriated by critics as a form of tribalism or racism. According to English anthropologist Sir Arthur Keith, in prehistoric times man everywhere lived in small, isolated bands. Yet by the dawn of history, small tribes had become “welded by war and conquest into bigger and bigger units.” (more…)

Soviet Anti-Zionism, a Jewish-Communist Ploy?
Neither Madole nor Common Sense seems to have left a discernible legacy on the extreme Right with the demise of both in the late 1970s. However, with the 1967 Arab-Israeli war there was a new impetus for Soviet anti-Zionism. (more…)
As much as Wilmot Robertson did for the white survival movement — and his work was impressive and considerable — his one major mistake was insisting that “nothing could be done” by whites to take back their civilization until an unspecified period of “education” made conditions right for action. He launched a magazine, Instauration, in 1975 to help in that education effort. (more…)
