If this figure is accurate, it would meanhalf the African population is retardedby European standards. Perhaps it ismore fruitful to think of African IQs atthis level as indicators of mental agerather than evidence of retardation.In support of the view that racial dif-ferences in IQ have genetic origins, Prof.Rushton showed slides demonstratingthat whites have brains six percent larger,and Asians eight percent larger thanthose of blacks. He also explained thatbrain size has a cascading effect on thebody, influencing everything from thewidth of the birth canal to jaw structureand pelvis size. Biological differencesaffect many kinds of behavior, and worldAIDS rates show a clear racial pattern.Over eight percent of black Africanadults have HIV compared to 0.2 per-cent of Europeans and 0.05 percent of Asians.In the question-and-answer periodProf. Rushton discussed reasons whyAsians appear to be less dynamic andcreative than whites despite higher IQs.He mentioned several theories, includ-ing differences in temperament, a largerstandard deviation in the distribution of white IQs, and the possibility that higherachievement by Westerners over Asians“may be only a temporary blip in his-tory.”After lunch,
discussedthe prospects for whites in the comingcentury. Noting that “the twentieth cen-tury has been a disaster,” he pointed outthat only 100 years ago whites had un-challenged global influence. Since then,two world wars, non-white immigration,and a dramatic loss of confidence havemade whites unable to defend their owninterests. Whites are now, he said, al-most at the point of “reconciling them-selves to oblivion.”Mr. Taylor noted we have essentiallymade a “state religion” out of diversityand egalitarianism, and that no white canrise in the media, academia or politicswithout professing allegiance to thiscult. Like communism, few people re-ally believe the cult’s absurd dogmas,but most are afraid to speak out. Still,he saw evidence that more and morepeople are challenging orthodoxy andare starting to say publicly what mostbelieve privately. He concluded that his-tory, science, and ordinary Americans allgive reason to expect a regeneration of white racial consciousness.
, a member of theEuropean Parliament and the second-ranking officer in the French Front Na-tional, explained the nature and objec-tives of his political movement. He de-fined its members as patriots who aretrying to preserve “Western civilizationand French civilization.” The FN val-ues historical tradition and is composedof “peaceful, civilized French peoplewho do not want to be foreigners in theirown land.” Nevertheless, front officialsare routinely slandered by the media, andpublic debates about the FN are gener-ally held without representatives fromthe party. As the left-wing press explains,there is “no freedom for the enemies of freedom.”Dr. Gollnisch argued that the idea of nation, far from going out of fashion orlosing its strength, is as vigorous as ever.Pointing out that the Soviet Union splitinto 15 different nations, he asked: “If so many people have dreamed to becomenations, there must be something in hu-man nature that makes it natural.”Even so, the West faces a grave chal-lenge. “Civilizations are mortal,” saidDr. Gollnisch, noting the possibility thatours may be beyond salvation. He urgedthe audience to consider it its duty ei-ther to keep it alive or to at least save asmuch of it as possible. Even if Westernideals are eventually replaced by some-thing else, they might still offer an in-dispensable basis on which to build.In brief remarks,
of the Council of Conservative Citizensdescribed the successful activist work of his group and how it has attracted newmembers by standing up for European-Americans. With his usual good humor,
discussed his fightagainst the diversity cult as member of a New York City school board, colum-nist for a Queens newspaper chain, andhost of a cable television program.The after-dinner speaker was
who defied warnings from his uni-versity not to attend the conference. Prof.Ellis caused a controversy in Englandwhen the
and other newspa-pers reported he was to speak to the ARconference on race relations in Britain.His employer Leeds University ordered
Demonstrators fighting Nazism outside the conference.
