Deadly Illusions

SOME PEOPLE make the mistake of thinking that National Vanguard is a "conservative" organization, because we take many positions in favor of traditional culture and the ideals of Western civilization. Others make the mistake of thinking we're "liberals" because we support preserving the environment and because we have a scientific, biological view of human life.

But we can't be categorized as either "liberal" or "conservative" because we pay no homage to and have little congruence with the predetermined and predigested belief systems -- "liberal" or "conservative" -- that plague our people today. What we are is an "eyes wide open" organization of men and women who look reality unflinchingly in the eye, see the threats to our continued existence, and work to change society for the better so that we can continue to exist and continue to progress.

In the process of being "eyes wide open" people, of seeing reality as it really is, we've had to ditch the delusions and illusions that really are the defining characteristics of so-called liberals and conservatives.

These illusions are so many that I make no claim that those I will mention today comprise anywhere near an exhaustive list. The list I shall enumerate is what you might call my Top Ten Liberal and Conservative Illusions That Are Killing Us.

10. Number ten on the list of illusions is that America is freer than any country on Earth. That may have been true once, but it is no longer true. Where is freedom as the government expands its "rights" to listen to your every telephone call -- to read your every letter -- to know every single thing you do with every cent you earn? Where is freedom when you cannot choose who you shall hire, or with whom you will associate without following the ever-changing dictates of the "Affirmative Action" bureaucrats?

Where is freedom when college admissions and entry examinations are always skewed against the young people who are members of the founding race of this country? Where is freedom when everyone in our major cities who is not wealthy is compelled to send his little children into gang-infested multiracial hellholes that are called public schools? Where is freedom when you work a large part of every year, for your entire life, to pay for programs and organizations which work against you?

Where is freedom when invaders can come and take your jobs and your land and your wealth -- and your government will not protect you? Protecting us from invasion is, after all, the most basic and primary thing we're supposed to be getting when we pay our taxes. Where is our freedom from invasion across our own borders, when our government seems much more intent on protecting the borders of a certain Middle Eastern nation?

9. Illusion number nine is the concept that America's founders somehow would have approved of the current anti-White establishment and that the edicts of that establishment are somehow "constitutional" or legal. I've covered this one before in great detail, so for now it will suffice to say that America's founders made it abundantly clear that they wanted America to be a White nation. Many of them were members or officers of an organization devoted to the humane repatriation of all Blacks to Africa. They voted on and approved many laws which had the effect of guaranteeing that only people of European descent could be citizens of the United States.

And they set up the federal government so that it had very limited powers -- in fact, that was the central principle of their system. But the limitation of powers has been chipped away so much now that the Congress can do practically anything that a majority of its members want. Except for a few shards of the Bill of Rights that they haven't totally abrogated yet, the Constitution is in tatters, with practically everything the central government does in the United States -- from anti-White preference programs, to gun laws, to wealth transfers from Whites to non-Whites and a million other things -- totally in violation of the Constitution's precise words and clear intent. And the people have, for the most part, supinely accepted this completely illegal usurpation and cult of the omnipotent legislature.

8. Illusion number eight is the idea -- held by some right-wingers who oppose the blatantly illegal and unconstitutional usurpations I just mentioned -- that we can somehow make the government and the corporations obey the law and stop their destructive acts just by going to court and boldly stating the truth. How I wish that this was true! -- but alas, it is just another illusion.

How do you think the demagogues and deceivers managed to build the power of government and trash the Founders' limitations on that power? By corrupting the legal profession and the political process, of course. When you go to court and boldly state that Law X and court decision Y are blatantly illegal and unconstitutional, you will be facing a judge whose very career depends upon and whose whole education is suffused with the falsehoods that prop up the establishment. He will be deciding on the basis of thousands of interlocking laws and decisions which are themselves as illegitimate as the ones you are challenging, and which buttress them 100 per cent. You're going to have as much luck as Alice in the Court of the Queen of Hearts.

Just making an argument and trusting one of ten thousand corrupt sitting judges to see it your way -- and then hoping the favorable decision will be implemented by an army of bureaucrats deeply hostile to what you're trying to do -- is a losing cause.

What is needed instead is a revolution in the hearts and minds of our people, and a thorough housecleaning of the halls of power, removing all those who have betrayed their positions of trust and power. I know that sounds daunting, but it is the only possible solution.

It will involve decades of work, instilling our values in each new generation to come, as they become teachers, writers, and men and women of influence. It will mean the gradual filling up of positions at universities, teachers' colleges, and elementary schools with people holding our values. And before any of that can happen, it will involve the building of explicitly racial institutions for White people that will not only survive but grow progressively stronger as the generations pass. We must aim at a counter-media, a counter-culture, a whole counter-society and counter-establishment that will be able to step in when the multiracial experiment reaches its inevitable conclusion.

7. The number seven illusion on our list is the pernicious idea that unfettered capitalism is one of the principles on which America was founded and on which our success as a nation is based. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Now it is true that allowing people to keep the fruits of their own labor is not only right and just, but also a tremendous spur to excellence. When the state owns all the means of production, history shows us that the people lead static lives of chronic shortages and a miserable kind of sameness. In the old Warsaw Pact countries, one often had to queue up for basic foodstuffs and clothing, and sometimes there were waiting lists for things as simple as 4-40 nuts or ball peen hammers. Their system was not in harmony with human nature. It didn't allow the best people to rise and better themselves. Those who rose were those best able to curry favor with the state bureaucrats just above them.

Free enterprise is in better harmony with human nature. People work willingly and achieve more when they and their families benefit personally. That makes your nation stronger and more progressive in almost every way.

But unfettered money-accumulation also brings out some bad aspects of human nature, which can ultimately subvert your entire society. Would-be monopolists use their money to corrupt the lawmakers and law-enforcers to stifle the competition. Big business uses its power over politicians to erect regulatory barriers to prevent small business from rising and challenging them. And they use their power to break down any barriers to maximum profits. Right now, borders are barriers to maximum profits. Anything that allows the money men to use the cheapest labor, and move products and workers wherever they like, is what they want. They want to use Chinese labor; they want to use Mexican labor, and to Hell with any country or any people that gets in the way of their unfettered accumulation of dollars. Now here's a good use for government: take all the wealth away from these globalists and internationalist corporations and put it back in the hands of those who still feel a bond with -- and act with love and responsibility toward -- their own people.

6. The sixth illusion which threatens our survival is the idea that replacing rapacious capitalism with state socialism run by Congress is the solution to rapacious capitalism.

First of all, isn't it a truism that a Congressman would steal anything except a red hot stove? Don't we all know and, in our more philosophical moments, laugh at the rampant dishonesty and criminality of the current two-party system? Why is taking power away from the guys in the corporate boardrooms and giving it to the guys in the Congressional cloakrooms an improvement? Would you trust your child with the average Congressman or Senator? Would you trust your wallet with them? How about your valet parking ticket? I didn't think so.

The guys in the boardrooms use influence-peddlers like Jack Abramoff to get their way almost all the time anyway, the public be damned. The lobbyists own the Congresscritters, the public be damned again. And AIPAC is the biggest and dirtiest lobby of them all -- and, even after AIPAC was caught with the goods stealing U.S. military secrets and funneling them to Israel, the bought politicians still line up like prize poodles at an AKC show to bark at the command of the Israel lobby. You can't get more corrupt than that. And these are the people the lefties and the socialists want to entrust our health care and our basic industries to? I don't think so.

There's no way any serious reform will come from the current system, barring a near-revolutionary situation, which the open border debacle may yet become. The so-called progressive tax system is a good example of how the people have been given a yearly fleecing for almost a century and they still don't get it.

It works like this: The big money men hate competition. And they hate any threat to their wealth from an angry and increasingly impoverished public, which might someday use government to wrest it from them. So they periodically pay their politicians to pretend to "soak the rich" through "progressive taxation," which means that tax rates go up the higher your income, and sometimes also that corporate rates go up, too. What the public never finds out is that these "soak the rich" plans were written by the money men themselves.

The super-wealthy have their foundations and numerous schemes which allow them to avoid much of the taxation, and they have the services of the most expensive accounting and law firms to guide them through the unbelievable complexities of these purpose-written laws.

The families and businesses that are just rising into the ranks of the wealthy -- those who own a factory or two, or a successful business worth a few million but far from the billionaire class -- do not have these advantages. So the "soak the rich" taxes do not actually soak the super-wealthy at all. Instead they soak the possible up-and-coming future competitors of the super-wealthy. They ossify the power structure and keep things "in the right hands." And the suckers never catch on.

The solution? Go reread the answer to illusion number eight again -- the in-depth creation of a whole new system to eventually replace the one that's self-destructing.

I can see that I am going to run out of time before I can complete my list of illusions that work against us and that the most highly aware people have discarded. I'll continue this subject next week, when I'll talk to you about these illusions:

5. Number five on the deadly illusions list is the concept that using our scientific knowledge to improve ourselves genetically is somehow "evil."

4. The fourth item is the idea that democracy is a synonym for freedom, or is even compatible with it.

3. Number three on the list of illusions is the idea that Jews have suffered in unique and unprecedented ways, different in severity and moral quality from the sufferings of other peoples.

2. Illusion number two is that the Jews are "God's Chosen People"

1. The number one illusion that is killing us is that the races are in some sense "equal" and it is of no consequence if one race replaces another.

Part 2

by Kevin Alfred Strom

THIS PROGRAM IS THE second in a two-part series illustrating ten deadly illusions that threaten the existence of White people. Like the beliefs prevalent in the Dark Ages that a flat Earth was the center of the universe and that evil spirits caused disease, these false ideas cause us to fundamentally misunderstand the world around us, make us blind to the real potentials of our situation, and make real solutions and real progress impossible. Let's take some time and sweep the cobwebs from our minds.

5. Number five on the deadly illusions list is the concept that using our scientific knowledge to improve ourselves genetically is somehow "evil."

Far from being "evil," eugenics is actually the most beneficial and humane discipline ever devised by the mind of man. In fact, eugenics is the only viable long-term solution to all our social problems. As I said on this program in 1993, eugenics is the only way to a better world. Science has shown us that genetic structure is by far the greatest determinant of intelligence, character, and behavior. Unfortunately, those with the best genetic inheritance tend to have the fewest children -- and those with the lowest intelligence, lowest potential, and worst character tend to have the most children. This leads to a genetic deterioration of the race that gets worse with each passing generation. No amount of education, no laws, and no increase in the power of the police or of the state can counter this degeneration.

Eugenics is simply the idea that we should humanely use our social policies to encourage as much as possible the birth of children with good genetic qualities and to discourage as much as possible the birth of children with poor genetic qualities. Some of this could be done with the more advanced techniques of modern reproductive science, such as allowing surrogate mothers to carry genius-level children in large numbers or encouraging the voluntary use of egg banks and sperm banks to propagate the best children that our race can possibly produce.

But most eugenics would be simple and basic and just good common sense: Instead of taxpayers subsidizing the birth of ever more 70-IQ underclass gangbangers through welfare payments to crack whore mothers and the like, the welfare system and the tax system should be reorganized to discourage in every possible way the birth of future Crips and Bloods. This could be done by linking the perennial underclass's benefits -- and mitigation of criminal sentencing -- to sterilization or emigration.

And there could be endless variations on the theme of tax deductions, tax credits, and interest-free loans extended to families of good genetic inheritance to encourage them to give the priceless gift of their children -- most of whom will grow up into highly-evolved creative problem-solvers -- to our society. How can that be "evil"?

It's not evil. It's really the ultimate good. After a few generations of eugenics -- after a few generations of ten times the number of problem-solvers and culture-creators being born, and a tenth of the number of problem-makers and culture destroyers being born, we would have a very different world indeed. An infinitely better world.

4. The fourth item on this list of toxic illusions is the idea that democracy is a synonym for freedom, or is even compatible with it. This is really an insane idea, and I have even run across it among those calling themselves White nationalists. A democracy is a society in which the majority rules by voting and its power is essentially unlimited. I ask -- how in the Hell is that compatible with freedom, much less synonymous with it? How are you "free" if at any time the majority can silence you, take your property, imprison you, enslave you by dictating your actions and associations, or even kill you?

Just as we need to be protected from individuals who are bandits and murderers, we also need to be protected from groups who would steal from us or harm us. And there is no more dangerous group than the fickle mob given the powers of force and of life and of death. And that is exactly what a "democratic" government is. A mob with force to back it up.

That is precisely why America's founders did not make America a democracy. In fact, if you read the debates that brought the Constitution and the Bill of Rights into being you will learn that preventing democracy, preventing mob rule, was one of the founders' main concerns. That's why more than half of the Constitution consists of enumerating a very short list of things that the government can do -- and a much longer list of (then thought to be) ironclad statements detailing numerous things government can never do, the will of the majority notwithstanding.

Consider the right to keep and bear arms -- an absolutely necessary right for any free people: If only the police can have guns, then you are living in a police state. End of story. Our Bill of Rights says that no legislature, no majority, no democracy, no consensus no matter how strong can ever disarm us.

The form of government given us by the founders allows us to vote for representatives to perform the limited functions of government, true. But it also protects us from democracy. The Constitution also specified that our nation was for White people and the future generations making up our posterity. It says that no legislature, no majority, no democracy, no consensus no matter how strong can ever make America a multiracial nation.

But Americans lost interest in their history and their unique legacy of freedom. They let demagogues tell them they lived in a "democracy." They allowed us to stagger toward mindless mob rule, doubly dangerous in an era of alien-controlled mass media. They allowed the fundamental principles of our nation to be violated and then abandoned. The results we see today in our ever-diminishing freedoms, our foreign wars, and in the culture of lies which props up the oligarchs who rule the multiracial feeding and breeding zone that used to be America.

Learn this lesson and learn it well: Democracy is not a synonym for freedom. Democracy and freedom are, in fact, mutually exclusive.

3. Number three on the list of illusions that threaten to wreck our children's future is the idea that Jews have suffered in unique and unprecedented ways, different in severity and moral quality than the sufferings of other peoples.

If you took them at their word -- always a foolish and dangerous thing to do -- you'd believe that six million of the darlings were killed during World War II. Never mind that they've been caught in whopper after whopper in telling this particular atrocity tale -- never mind that the world's richest ethnic group adds to its swollen coffers by milking the taxpayers for billions every year based on these stories, while other groups that suffered more get nothing, or even have to pay -- and never mind the unjust and shameful persecution of David Irving and Ernst Zundel and many others for rationally questioning these Jewish tales. (It's a very strange sort of "truth" indeed that requires draconian laws to criminalize those who question it -- in fact, historically speaking, every "truth" which required the imprisonment of those who doubt it has turned out to be a damned lie.) But never mind all that. Accept the six million figure for WWII Jewish losses.

How does it compare with the losses of other peoples? More than forty million White people died during World War II. More than nine million White people died just a few years earlier in World War I, and that's probably a low figure since figures for civilian losses were not systematically kept during that war. And that's also ignoring the many hundreds of thousands, perhaps as many as a million, Armenians who died under the rule of the Ottoman Empire at that time.

Between the World Wars, many millions of White people died under largely-Jewish-run Communism, including more than 5 million in Ukraine alone. After World War II, historian James Bacque has shown us that some nine million Germans died due to deliberate government policies, almost all of them helpless civilians or prisoners of war -- a genocide that, for some mysterious reason, has not resulted in required courses in public schools, feature films, or a History Channel miniseries.

Our schoolchildren can parrot back the canned figures for Jewish losses in World War II, but haven't the faintest idea of the losses suffered by White nations -- not Russia, not Germany, not France, not Britain, and not even America. This exaltation of Jews as the ultimate victim makes us sitting ducks for economic exploitation -- a kind of slavery, really -- based on these atrocity tales, and it also provides the Jewish supremacists a powerful psychological weapon with which to batter those who point out Jewish genocidal activities in the Middle East, where Jews brazenly kill and take other people's land, and in the West where Jews use their power to push population replacement of Whites by imported Third Worlders.

2. Number two on the list of illusions that are killing us is the idea that the Jews are "God's Chosen People." This nonsense was, sadly, inherent in the ancient writings on which the religion the West inherited from the dying Roman Empire was based. Western Christianity had largely repudiated it over the centuries, and it played little or no part in the doctrines of major sects for hundreds of years, but it was always there in the accepted canon of officially Holy books, ticking away like a time bomb.

The time bomb was set off by the rise of the fundamentalists, ironically the same sects with which the White Right chose to ally itself during most of the twentieth century. These deluded folks, with the help of Jewish money and Jewish television, have made themselves the most powerful prop upholding the neocons, their bloody wars in the Middle East, and their transformation of the conservative movement in the United States from one of racial realism and integrity to one of aggressive support for multiracialism, open borders, and the worship of Jews as virtual gods on Earth.

Those who wish to see the world as it really is, and not through the lens of a false but emotionally-loaded "morality" implanted in childhood by abusers of a holy trust, should objectively consider the following: If you want to enslave an alien people without firing a shot, what better way to do that than by convincing them to accept a religion in which your own people are especially holy, "chosen," and connected to God -- and in which the bedrock of all morality for every nation is to be found in how well they treat and how much they reverence your holy, chosen nation? Then consider who wrote the works which make the "chosen people" claim, authorship which is not in dispute. Then consider how very different our social policies and foreign policies would be if it were not for the political power of those who believe in this self-serving, purpose-written, and crazy myth.

1. The number one illusion that is killing us is that the races are in some sense "equal" and it is of no consequence if one race replaces another. This is the key to everything. This is the falsehood that is pushed most vociferously by the Jewish supremacists in all the media they control. It is a philosophy of surrender and death, so naturally it is promoted by those who want us to give up all that we have and who want us to die without any resistance.

It is especially forced on Whites. No one objects if Japan and China have policies favoring Asians or ensuring that their nations remain Asian. No network news anchors express outrage if Zaire or Kenya remain Black nations with Black-controlled governments. And the controlled media beam benignly when Israel openly announces policies designed to preserve the Jewish character of the explicitly race-based state of Israel.

But let a German say that he doesn't think Germany should become Turkish -- or let a Frenchman say that the millions of non-White Muslims now there should leave France -- or let a Briton say that Britain should be British, not Pakistani -- or let an American say that importing Mexicans is a bad idea -- and the media and political establishments immediately go on the attack. A White person who wants his nation to remain White is placed outside the pale of acceptable political debate. He is attacked as an exemplar of total evil. He is punished in any way legally possible, and new ways are being devised all the time.

But pushing the idea that the races are "equal" and that replacement of our children by Third Worlders is of no consequence is unquestionably genocide. Survival of the genetic patterns of one's group, one's people, one's extended racial family is, so far as science and philosophy have been able to show us, the categorical imperative of all life on Earth. If we abandon the struggle to ensure that our progeny will inherit the land we have developed and the civilization we have created, then we have given up on life itself; we are nothing more than walking corpses.

And there is no crime greater than denying life to the infinite White generations that can exist in the future. By doing that, we would be denying life to future and greater Shakespeares and Aristotles, future and greater Edisons and Teslas and Marconis, future and greater Jeffersons and Columbuses and Curies and Pierces. The race that first spread its wings and touched the surface of another world would die and never rise again to the great discoveries and great powers that it could achieve -- discoveries and powers that we cannot even imagine now. There is no greater crime than this, this killing of the future.

Today I have shown you that the quasi-religious and absurdly false concepts that have been implanted and carefully cultivated in us are worse than the most worthless dross and are in reality deadly poison in the form of destructive thought-patterns: The pious man's belief that Jehovah will give him an extra pat on the head in heaven for every non-White soul he saves or every bullet he buys for the IDF is just as deadly as the LSD-taker's idea that the onrushing locomotive is made of marshmallows.

Does our rejection of these deadly illusions -- does our rejection of much of the dogma of what today passes for religion -- does our stance as logical, rational "eyes wide open" people -- mean that life has no great transcendent meaning? Does it mean that we see everything as governed by mere chance? Does it mean that we can never say the words "creator" or "eternity" or "destiny" or "God"? No. It means instead that we give those words their highest meaning -- their true meaning, or least as true as our current level of intelligence, understanding, and wisdom will allow.

This is one of the reasons I chose the choral setting of Finlandia by Jean Sibelius as the theme music which closes every American Dissident Voices program. With a few breaks, we've used it since 1991, when this program began. The part we use is the final section of the piece, and the lyrics are by American poet Amy Bridgman.

Writer Sam Dickson has commented on the meaning of this piece, in his introduction to its performance at the memorial service for Revilo P. Oliver: "This stirring composition, which concludes the longer piece of the same name, expresses with majesty and solemnity the joy of the Finnish people at their liberation. It was written during the era of the 1905 revolution, in which Finland came close to establishing her independence from Czarist Russia. Ultimately, Finland’s liberation was deferred until the close of World War I. The beautiful English translation expresses the hopes and longings of all branches of our race facing contemporary ruin and extinction through 'diversity,' 'multiculturalism,' 'integration of the races,' and a 'New World Order.'"

The piece not only symbolizes a people's longing for freedom and self-determination -- precisely our goals for European-descended peoples everywhere and for our race as a whole -- but it also symbolizes a striving for racial progress, for higher and more God-like levels of consciousness. And it does so quite beautifully. Since the words may not be perfectly clear in the musical recording, particularly at lower bandwidth, I'll read them to you here:

        On great, lone hills, where tempests brood and gather,
        Primeval Earth, against primeval sky,
        We, faring forth, possessed by fervent longing,
        Have found a throne, eternal and high,
        Have knelt at last in wordless adoration,
        Till fire and whirlwind have both gone by.

        With ardent song we greet the golden morning.
        By faith upborne, remember not the night.
        The whole wide world, triumphant hails the dawning.
        God walks abroad in garments of might,
        The hills, behold, are now a path of splendor,
        Transfigured all, and all crowned with light.

It is with that vision in mind that I beseech each and every one of you who hears my voice to abandon the illusions that chain you to the guillotine, and accept the truths that will accompany you on a stairway to the stars.
