The Light Beyond Rationalism

Doré. St. Paul at Ephesus

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. –1 Corinthians 1: 19-25

Based purely on my own anecdotal observations I have concluded that this stepped-up, intensified attack on the white race by Antifa and Black Lives Matter has brought out a rage in some white grazers that was not there before, and it has forced some of the button-down conservatives who have never liked people such as me using terms like “satanic” and “negro worship” to concede that just maybe the liberals are satanic and just maybe they really and truly do worship the negro. But will the rage against the BLM fiends and the new awareness amongst some whites about the real religion of modern Europeans bring about a change in the hellish conditions the European people are currently living under?

I doubt it, because of the extent that the worship of Satan, through the sacred negro, has become institutionalized throughout the European world. Burke said that if “’we suffer any person to tell us his story, morning and evening, but for one twelvemonth, he will become our master.” The liberals have been telling us their story of the evil white race and the sacred negro for over one hundred years, which is why I think it is highly unlikely that the rage of a few white grazers and the new awareness of a few white conservatives is going to start a white counterrevolution. But unlikely is not the same as impossible. If a poll had been taken at the time of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection from the dead on the subject of “which religious cult will replace Rome?” you probably would have gotten 45% for Mithra, 35% for Cybele, and the remaining 20% for the philosophers. The religion of the Nazarene would have gotten a statistical zero. The spirit is not subject to the same laws of birth, death, and decay as plant life, no matter what Oswald Spengler tells us.

In order for the European people to go from here, the worship of the sacred negro, to there, the worship of Christ the Lord, they must reject rationalism. St. Paul led the charge against the rationalist dragon when he stood before the Athenian philosophers and preached Christ crucified, Christ risen. Hamlet followed in his train when he confronted Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and refused to be “played upon” as if he were a musical instrument with a predetermined amount of notes. Burke echoed St. Paul’s and Shakespeare’s defiance of the rationalists when he exposed the “cold malignity of the metaphysicians”:

Nothing can be conceived more hard than the heart of a thorough-bred metaphysician. It comes nearer to the cold malignity of a wicked spirit than to the frailty and passion of a man. It is like that of the principle of Evil himself, incorporeal, pure, unmixed, dephlegmated, defecated evil. –Letter to a Noble Lord

Scott continued the attack:

Among those who were the first to ridicule and abandon the self-denying principles in which the young knight was instructed and to which he was so carefully trained up, Louis XIth of France was the chief. That Sovereign was of a character so purely selfish—so guiltless of entertaining any purpose unconnected with his ambition, covetousness, and desire of selfish enjoyment, that he almost seems an incarnation of the devil himself, permitted to do his utmost to corrupt our ideas of honour in its very source. Nor is it to be forgotten, that Louis possessed to a great extent that caustic wit which can turn into ridicule all that a man does for any other person’s advantage but his own, and was, therefore, peculiarly qualified to play the part of a cold hearted and sneering fiend. –Quentin Durward

Then Dostoyevsky’s Underground Man: “A man lives his whole life to prove he is not a piano key,” and Dmitri Karamazov: “I defy the logic of two plus two equals four,” upheld the Christian Europeans’ defiance of rationalism, a defiance grounded in the Gospel of Christ and the epistles of St. Paul.

And finally it was Ian Maclaren’s young pastor of Drumtochty, who came to Drumtochty determined to bring the newer, scientific Gospel to his people; but then, with the memory of his mother in his heart, he preached Christ crucified, Christ risen, the unadulterated, unscientized Christ, to the people of Drumtochty.

Next minute he was kneeling on the hearth, and pressing the magnum opus, that was to shake Drumtochty, into the heart of the red fire, and he saw, half-smiling and half-weeping, the impressive words, “Semitic environment,” shrivel up and disappear.

As the last black flake fluttered out of sight, the face looked at him again, but this time the sweet brown eyes were full of peace.

It was no masterpiece, but only the crude production of a lad who knew little of letters and nothing of the world. Very likely it would have done neither harm nor good, but it was his best, and he gave it for love’s sake, and I suppose that there is nothing in a human life so precious to God, neither clever words nor famous deeds, as the sacrifices of love.

The moon flooded his bedroom with silver light, and he felt the presence of his mother. His bed stood ghostly with its white curtains, and he remembered how every night his mother knelt by its side in prayer for him. He is a boy once more, and repeats the Lord’s Prayer, then he cries again, “My mother! My mother!” and an indescribable contentment fills his heart. Beside the Bonnie Brier Bush

The folklore of our people gives the lie to rationalism. But is the folklore true? If we decide, with our abstract reason, that the folklore is false, then we will add the sacred negro and science to our unholy trinity and reject the Christ in whom the European people believed. And then we will, of necessity, have to reject the European people. There are variations on the anti-European theme. The intellectual Christians squeeze Christ into the ‘abstract reason’ position of the unholy trinity and place the negro in the position of the Savior while retaining science as the Holy Ghost. The neo-pagans embrace abstract reason and science while rejecting the negro and Christ, which is why they always lose in confrontations with their liberal cousins: they have no Savior. But when all variations are stated, we are left with one huge obstacle to the restoration of the European people – Christ’s incarnation and His resurrection from the dead is irrational and unscientific; therefore, the European people must look either to a utopian future with a modified, rationalized Gospel of Christ or a utopian future completely devoid of Christ. In either case, the European people must, if they want to survive on the lowest rung of the liberals’ ladder of diversity, repudiate their ‘racist’ past and embrace the new doctrine of ‘white is evil and the negro is good.’ And as we now can see clearly, ‘racist’ means something entirely different from the dictionary definition of racist. The liberal definition of racist is – Any European who believes in the Gospel of Christ as St. Paul and the antique Europeans believed. The condemnation of our heartfelt faith in Christ the Lord is at the heart of the Antifa/BLM attack on the white race. They are from hell, and only those who love much, only white Christians, will have the passion to fight such creatures to the death.

It seems completely out of place to talk about gentle Jesus in the wake of the demon-cratic, Antifa, BLM assault on the white race, but I ask you – what force on this earth can overcome such evil? In Our Mutual Friend, Dickens tells us, through John Harmon, that there are white moments in this life when we touch the heart of God through His channels of grace:

So, she leaning on her husband’s arm, they turned homeward by a rosy path which the gracious sun struck out for them in its setting. And oh! there are days in this life, worth life and worth death.

The hearth fire virtues, those bonds we form with our kith and kin, give us the faith, hope, and charity to survive in this vale of tears. The demon-crats, the Antifa and the BLMers would destroy every channel of grace that connect us, through our people, to the living God. It’s of no use to dialogue with such creatures from hell — they don’t want a dialogue, they do not want peaceful coexistence. This is war, against an enemy that has no mercy.

In the 20th century, as psychology, the scientific study of mankind, replaced the Biblical view of mankind, our laws reflected that new world view. Murderers and other violent criminals were often given second and third chances. The end result of that new psychology was an increase in the murder rate, for the simple reason that society gave murderers extra opportunities to murder. But still, there was a belief, even among liberals, that violent white criminals should be apprehended and punished. What kind of society would we have if murderers and rapists were not punished?

Enter, stage left, the sacred negro. When the negroes commit violent crimes, there is a strong belief among liberals that they have not committed any crime, that the crimes attributed to them are fabrications by racist whites (see To Kill a Mockingbird), or that their alleged crimes are justifiable, self-defense killings of their white oppressors. If you look at any police show, you will never see black criminals. And all of the documentaries on crime focus on the Mafia and white murderers such as the barbaric white fiends that recently surfaced in Florida. Evil exists in all races, no white Christian has ever disputed that, but no white Christian should ever exempt one race from original sin. The consequence of that exemption has resulted in the destruction of all that was decent and good in our civilization – the pietas that connected us to His divinely human heart.

Would the demon-crats and the Antifa be able to destroy every last vestige of our European civilization if they did not invoke the sacred negro? Of course not. Which is why they do invoke the sacred negro, to justify everything they do. Every time the liberals meet the slightest opposition, the cry of ‘racism’ surfaces. It is their battle cry, and thus far they have defeated all their enemies under that banner. So long as abstract reason remains the first person of the liberals’ trinity, the negro will be sacred, and Satan, through the sacred negro, will reign supreme in the European world.

Great artists are not separate from us because they are unlike us; the Shakespeares, the Rembrandts, and the Handels are separate from us in their artistic excellence. But we are drawn to them because they express, through their art, what we feel. The lesser artists, who do not reach our hearts, men like Proust and Joyce, belong only to an intellectual elite who enjoy only that which is esoteric and devoid of humanity. Dostoyevsky belongs with the great artists; he describes for us, through his art, a modern man’s journey from rationalism to faith in Christ, the God-Man. Dostoyevsky was a radical, inspired by the revolutionary atheist Visarion Belinsky. During his imprisonment for his revolutionary activities he gradually converted to a faith in Jesus Christ. But it was only when he saw that there was a higher truth than rationalism that he could believe in the God-Man. First it was the humanity of Christ, what he called the “radiant personality” of the God-Man, which drew him away from rationalism. And then later, after much suffering, he came to believe that Christ’s “radiant personality” pointed to the truth – Christ was indeed the Son of the living God. Dostoyevsky believed that he, “an intelligent man, a European,” could believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ.

Christ faced the religious rationalists when He stood before the Sanhedrin, and He faced the secular rationalists when He stood before Pilate. In both instances He stood alone – “He hath borne our griefs, And carried our sorrows.” St. Paul also stood before the religious rationalists, the Jews, and the secular rationalists, the Athenians, who considered the incarnation and resurrection of Christ blasphemy and foolishness. But St. Paul did not stand alone — Christ was with him: “In Him and through Him.” What Dostoyevsky went through is what we must go through, the inner struggle against rationalism, if we will be able to stand against Satan and his minions. We cannot ‘out-reason’ the liberals – we must defeat them with a heartfelt faith in the God who transcends reason. In the absence of that faith, we stand alone before the liberals’ rationalist tribunal where the white man is always guilty and the negroes are sacred. Is the folklore of our people, the Christ story, true or false? It is true, and our certainty that it is true will sustain us against this intensified onslaught of the devil.

We do well to dwell upon the short story, “The Man Who Saw through Heaven,” by Wilbur Daniel Steele, written in 1919. In the short story a fundamentalist minister goes to an observatory and, for the first time in his life, looks at the heavens with the outer eye of reason rather than with the inner eye of faith. In a ‘Road Away from Damascus’ experience, he sees the un-light of rationalism. Having lost the Savior he plunges into primitive religions. At his death his wife is left with the hope that her husband has finally purged the rationalist demon from his soul:

From here, Mrs. Diana, your husband walked out — “

“He had sunk to idolatry. Idolatry!”

“To the bottom, yes. And come up its whole history again. And from here he walked out into the sunshine to kneel and talk with ‘Our Father Which — ‘ “

She got it. She caught it. I wish you could have seen the light going up those long, long cheeks as she got it:

“Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name!”

We went down hill in the darkness, protected against goblins by a vast rattling of gourds and beating of heathen drums.

We too must walk out of the rationalist nightmare and return to Him who bids us pray to “Our Father which art in Heaven,” rather than to the sacred negro who is Satan’s surrogate. +
