There is no strength, no blood, in our Nordic, Greco-Roman heritage if we see that heritage as an end in and of itself. Those pagan civilizations only have significance because in the end the best of the pagans bent their knees to Christ. Europeans do not have a Nordic, Greco-Roman heritage, they have only one heritage, just as there is only one God. Christ became the Europeans’ hero God, the one true God to whom all the heroes of the Norsemen, the Greeks, and the Romans gave way. – CWNY
I love the moral essence which is Europe. I love her with all my heart, mind, and soul. If you ask me whether I love Europe more than Christ or more than my family, I will answer by saying that they cannot be separated. My God and my family are all bound together in the moral essence called Europe. Within that orb, all things human and Christian live; outside that orb there is no humanity and no faith, there is only a lost world of everlasting night ruled by the Prince of Darkness.
The two greatest enemies of Christian Europe are the Church and the Academy. It is there that neophytes are taught to hate all things Christian and European. The churchmen, who still want to make a living by celebrating the Christian holidays, try to separate Christianity from the European. They tell us that the antique Europeans got it all wrong. What they teach, which is in complete contradiction to what the antique Europeans believed, is the true Christianity. At least that is what the churchmen tell us. But ‘tis strange, the churchmen’s new Christianity is virtually the same as modern liberalism, whose proponents are the devout enemies of Christianity. That doesn’t bother the churchmen, because the liberals are only condemning the old European Christianity that they also condemn.
The Academy, which was originally spawned by the various churches, spews out an unrelenting stream of abuse on everything stemming from Christian Europe. The most inhumane places on the face of the earth are the humanities departments of the Western universities. It is there that so-called scholars and experts tell their students about the glories of the demon-based religions of the black, yellow, and brown races. It is there that the ‘smart ones’ talk of the sins of the white, racist Europeans who have ‘polluted’ the world with their hatred and intolerance of the colored people and their heathen faiths. What are we to make of this? There is only one conclusion – the liberals in church and academy are the servants of Satan, they have hardened their hearts against all things humane and Christian: “Nothing can be conceived more hard than the heart of a thoroughbred 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.” (Burke)
The sneering, metaphysical hatred of the Christian Europeans is the lifeblood of the modern anti-European clerics and the anti-European academics. Their hatred, fueled and inspired by Satan, has spread from the pulpits and classrooms to the general population through the various state-sponsored newspapers and media propaganda outlets. It’s not possible to overestimate the damage that the constant stentorian deluge of anti-European propaganda has done to the European people. All successful revolutions are won in the stentorian trenches. The Jacobins kept hurling abuse at the French King and Queen and the entire French aristocracy until those in authority began to question their moral authority to rule. So it has been in all the white nations. The colored barbarians and the Moslems are not overwhelming Europe because of their armed might, they are overwhelming the white nations because the European people believe the liberals’ propaganda. They don’t think they have the right to rule in their own nations, because of their sinful, racist past. All they ask for is redemption.
“Please tell us that we are forgiven, tell us that we are not racist. If we pour millions of dollars into the liberals’ coffers to disperse to the negroes who murder us will you tell us we are not racist? If we allow our cities and towns to be infested with Moslem invaders who rape and pillage, will you tell us we are not racists? Please, thou great and wonderful liberal god, say we are not racist.”
But forgiveness never comes. There can be no absolution for the white man. And why can the white man never be forgiven for the sin of racism? First and foremost he cannot be forgiven because Satan does not forgive. And secondly, there is no racist sin to be forgiven. The white man is not guilty of crimes against the colored races, the white man is guilty of betraying his people and his God. He sins whenever he accepts any part of the liberals’ satanically inspired lie called white racism.
White people are being systemically exterminated because they were the Christ-bearing race. No other race has lifted the Christ child onto their shoulders since the white race abandoned Him. But why, if white people have abandoned Christ, are they still being attacked by the liberals and their colored minions? The whites are still being attacked because Satan knows that they still are the Christ bearers. A father doesn’t cease to be a father because he abandons his children. He has simply stopped being a good father. There is always the possibility, so long as the white race remains white, that white people will place the Christ child on their shoulders once again and fulfill their destiny as the Christ bearing people. Every time a white woman takes a colored man as her mate, every time a churchmen or an academic hurls the racist charge at the whites in the pews and in the classrooms, Satan rejoices, because his work, the destruction of the Christ-bearing race, is proceeding as he desires.
Satan does not love mankind, he uses them for his own purposes, but he does not love them. And he manipulates them by appealing to their intellectual pride. This is the reason that there has not been any successful counterrevolution in the white nations. The Greek temptation is the besetting sin of the opponents of liberalism. This is brought home to me every time I read the literature of the alternative right. I recently saw an article in an alternative right newsletter that illustrated the weakness of the new right, which is really not new. The author rejected the notion that Western civilization began with the democratic age. That is all to the good; we need to realize that American democracy and its European counterparts are all part of the Jacobin-Communist movement. But then comes the fatal fall from grace. The author went on to say that Western civilization began with the Greeks. Au contraire, it most certainly did not begin with the Greeks. It began in a manger in Bethlehem. I prefer beer in bottles to beer in cans, but it is not the bottle that makes the liquid inside taste so good. The Christian churchmen used many of the Greek forms to frame the Christian faith, but those external forms were not the faith itself. Those churchmen who make the outer forms the entire faith are not adhering to the Christ-centered faith of St. Paul and the antique Europeans. The unknown God of Plato and Carl Jung is not the same God that St. Paul encountered on the road to Damascus.
Christian Europe owes nothing of spiritual significance to the pagan Greeks. Marco Bozzaris is more important than any of the pagan Greeks who preceded him, because Marco Bozzaris came from the heart of Christian Greece. The Greek gods, like the Nordic gods, were only significant to the extent that their lives revealed a racial memory of the one true God. Zeus and Odin were dim recollections of the Europeans’ connection to the living God. And the Greek intellectual tradition was one step removed from Zeus. To refer to that tradition as an alternative to modern liberalism is the equivalent of jumping from the proverbial frying pan into the proverbial fire.
As an undergraduate student in a Philosophy 101 class, I was required to read a book that was titled Beyond Socrates and Jesus. The author was, of course, rejecting the Western philosophical tradition and Christianity. In the 20th century the post-World War I conservatives held on to Socrates, but they rejected Christ. So if a man of the alternative right claims to be a conservative because he looks to those Socratic conservatives all we can say for him is that he is more conservative than his liberal cousins, but he is not a conservative as Thomas Nelson Page was conservative, as Sir Walter Scott was conservative, or as all the people of Christian Europe were conservative. They were full-blooded, integral Christian men and women.
When managerial minds, the sons of Martha, assume the leadership in church or state, tragedy ensues, because real life is of the spirit, it is not about processes and systems. But the managerial mind wants to compress the spirit, which goeth where it lists, into a neat little system that can be used by practical men. That is why the managerial men of the new Right look to the Greek philosophers in order to give them a useable, practical guide to restoring Western culture. But in doing so, they make two great mistakes. The first mistake is that they overlook the fact that the Greek philosophers could not sustain the ancient Greeks. People needed something besides the Socratic dialogues and Plato’s utopia, they needed personal gods, so they turned to the mystery religions. (1) And secondly, there is the matter of truth. We grant that the ancient Greeks were the smartest people who ever lived, from a philosophical standpoint – that still leaves us with the wisdom of the heart that St. Paul writes about. What if the men of the West, the men with hearts of flesh, discovered a deeper wisdom than the Greek philosophers? The modern conservatives who prefer the Greek philosophers to Christ are like the dwarves in C. S. Lewis’s book The Last Battle. They cannot see the Christian fields right in front of their eyes, because they are blinded by their intellectual pride, which does not allow them to see with hearts of flesh. They won’t be fooled; they are too smart to believe in a God who enters human hearts.
St. Paul, the man who met Christ on the road to Damascus, tells us that “the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” Europe is indeed dead if all we have is the Greek rationalist tradition. But she shall not die if Europeans love her with a passion that stems from His passion. “For God so loved” – surely that divine act of charity can inspire us to love our own people enough to fight for them. When men act in response to His love, miracles occur. The ‘racist’ men and women of old Europe did not conquer the world because they were smarter than the rest of the world. They conquered the world because they loved much. Nothing will be denied to those Europeans who see with the heart’s eye and follow the Via Dolorosa of the foolish knight errant of charity, who was crucified for our sins and rose again from the dead on the third day. We too shall rise from the dead on the last day, just as Europe will awake from her deathlike sleep when His people become, once again, what they were born to be – the Christ bearing race. +
(1) Two great classical scholars who were also poets, Thomas Hughes and Sir Walter Scott, saw the limits of classical scholarship. They saw that a man needs a romantic vision more than a treatise. Likewise St. Paul; he was neither a philosopher nor a theologian. He was something much greater: he was a poet of the absolute who bore witness to the startling fact that the unknown God had a name and a divinely human personality. “To the Jews a stumbling block, to the Greeks foolishness.” Our apostle, St. Paul, is our guide, not the Greeks nor the Jews – “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” That is the vision that the European people took to their hearts and that is the romantic vision that will restore Europe.
