Objectivism, in theory, is a mortal threat to White

In fact, Objectivism denies that they have a side
at all, or even that there is a “they.”
The late 1960s and early 1970s marked the first wave of the libertarian
movement. Ayn Rand's Objectivism had shaken mainstream philosophy with
its core ideas. But Rand was a staunch advocate of limited government,
a stance which distanced her from many of her own admirers and students,
who saw the State not as the protector but the enemy of human society.
At the same time, the political and economic thoughts of Dr. Murray
Rothbard clarified the route libertarianism must take. Rand and Rothbard,
two forces seemingly at odds, personally and ideologically. J. Michael
Oliver, then editor of the nationally circulated objectivist-libertarian
journal, "The New Banner," argued that it was a false division. Written
in 1972 as an academic work but not published until now. "The New
Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism" inexorably links objectivist
principles with anarcho-capitalism, and argues that libertarianism,
both then and now, must be founded upon the bedrock of Rand's philosophy
if it is to remain vital.

J. Michael Oliver was one of the two original founders of the now defunct
New Banner Institute, Inc., and its flagship publication...the equally
defunct "The New Banner" so-called fortnightly libertarian journal. My
intention is not to attack Michael personally, but to draw attention to
the fact that he soon abandoned New Banner Institute within a year or so
of its implementation of many of the ideas outlined in his book. To wit,
I cite "The Black Flag Retribution Agency," masterminded by none other
than the other co-founder...supreme cultist David F. Kennison. Although
these events took place many years ago, they are still relevant insomuch
as Randian/Objectivism/Capitalism threaten Caucasian interests today.

Four Arrested In Chaining Of 14-Year-Old To Bed
By Hugh E. Munn, Staff Writer
Authorities are still trying this morning
to unravel portions of a mystery sorrounding
a 14-year-old Columbia boy who allegedly had
been chained to his bed for more than a month
as a disciplinary experiment.
Richland County Sheriff's Deputies arrested
and charged four persons in connection with
the incident, including the boy's father,
William Robert Black, 36, a former University
of South Carolina geology instructor.
Bond for Black was set Friday afternoon by
Magistrate Michael Davis at $40,000.
Also arrested were the boy's stepmother,
Linda Black, who is separated from Black,
and two other men, Randay Holcombe of
South Kilbourne Road and David Foster
Kennison, 26, of 121 S Bull St.
Bond for Mrs. Black was set at $2,000, $15,000
for Kennison and $5,000 for Holcombe.
All four have been charged with assault and
battery of a high and aggravated nature.
By late Friday afternoon, local authorities,
led by Richland County Sheriff Frank Powell
and Fifth Circuit Solicitor John W. Foard
were able to piece together enough of the
picture to come up with the following account:
A 14-year-old boy apparently had been taken
out of school by his father in early May
after some type of disciplinary problem
between the two.
The teen-ager was taken back to his home
where his father fastened a long chain hooked
to a bed to the boy's ankle and then proceeded
to board up all the windows inside the upstairs
Some type of acoustical material was stuffed
between large plywood sheets and the window to
keep noise from getting out. The door was
bolted from the outside.
Holcombe specifically was charged in connection
with helping to board up the windows. The
boy was forced to remain in chains inside
the room for prolonged periods up to at least
sex weeks and was fed meals while in the room.
The 14-yer-old at first was allowed to visit
the bathroom after pounding on the floor to
get his father's attention. The father
apparently was downstairs.
However, later the boy was forced to remain
at the bed and to use a small bucket for any
bathroom needs. The boy seldom was permitted
to leave the room, but when taken out, he was
handcuffed during most times.
The youth first managed to get the attention
of authorities by calling a young counselor
who worked with the boy after the boy got
into some minor trouble with the law.
The boy told the counselor, who asked not to
be identified, about the incident after
managing to remove a headboard from the bed
which was connected the chain and then getting
to an extension telephone.
The counselor called the boy's father and
confronted him with the information and later
agreed to meet with the father at some neutral
site. When the counselor and his wife arrived
at the site, he was told to get inside a car
with three persons and a fourth remained behind
with the counselor's wife. The car returned
some three hours later.
During that time, the counselor told officers,
he was made to understand he and his wife were
being threatened if they pursued the matter
A short time later, a young friend of the boy
was allowed to visit the chained youth in his
room. The friend later called the Richland
County Sheriff's Dept. and verified the
counselor's account to Juvenile Officer Robert
DeLoache who then went to investigate the charge
at 3806-B Timberlake Dr.
When DeLoache and another officer arrived at the
scene Tuesday, neighbors in the area were
evasive and the boy's father would not allow
access inside the house. The officers left
because they were not carrying any search
or arrest warrants.
Armed with the necessary orders fron the
Richland County Family Court and with a search
warrant, officers returned to the house Thursday,
backed up by other deputies and several SLED
No resistance was met when officers went into
the house and the boy was discovered, but the
chain had been removed and the boards were taken
down fron the window.
The boy was taken from the home and placed in the
hands of the court which subsequently assigned
the youth to a foster home. By midday Friday,
authorities began to uncover still more unusual
facts in the case after officers search the
residence and confiscated the following items:
-six pistols, including four .357 Magnums and
two 9mm handguns.
-two full boxes of new ammunition (consisting of
50 roounds of ammunition per box)
-three holsters and one gunbelt containing 50
rounds of .357 ammunition.
-two five-pound bags of lead shots.
Officers also located gunpowder and an ammunition
making machine at the residence. Also located
and confiscated were a 10-foot-long chain with
a padlock at one end and two plywood boards.
Later Friday, authorities began to investigate
accounts of an organization named the Black Flag
Retribution Agency which had been linked to the
boy's father. However, by this morning, the exact
goal or purpose of the organization is not known.
Authorities were first made aware of the organization
by the 14-year-old's own account and from certain
other items also confiscated from the residence.
Nevertheless, they still have not pieced together
the complete story.
From the boy, authorities learned that the youth was
forced to work off a debt of more than $400 to the
Black Flag group, but the reason for the debt is
Further verifying the new information, authorities
confiscated a printed invoice showing an outstanding
debt to the "Black Flag Retribution Agency" owed
by the boy. The bill shows an original claim dated
May 2, 1973 of $464.62 with another $12.52 added
on for interest. By May 31, 1973, the bill showed
that $54.77 had been paid on the debt.
From the boy's account, authorities learned that
the teen-ager was paying off the debt by ironing
shirts at the rate of ten cents per short-sleeved
shirt abd fifteen cents per long-sleeved shirt.
Still, however, no exact reason could be garnered
for the bill or for the incident involving the chain
other than as some type of disciplinary action.
According to one source who is investigating the
group, the Black Flag Retribution Agency apparently
was founded on several principles, including the
right to punish its owb members or children of
The source said the group was experimenting on
the theory that the group could "purchase the
contract of a person" who had committed a crime
against someone merely by paying off the amount
of the loss suffered by whoever might be accosted.
After the contract is purchased, the group then has
the right to seek any type of retribution and to
inflict any reasonable punishment it deems necessary.
However, authorities indicated late Friday they
are not prepared to attribute any purpose for the
group's existence pending further investigation which
Three of the four person arrested in connection with
the incident were returned to Richland County Jail
after the bond hearing but later were released when
their bonds were posted. The boy's step-mother was
released immediately after the hearing before Magistrate
Black left the university as an instructor last
January after working at the school some ten years.
Black had been an instructor at the university since
1965 and was a research associate at that school
since 1963. A native of Oklahoma, Black received his
masters degree from Virginia Poly-technic Institute
and previously served as a teching assistant at Oklahoma
