During the 10 years since I spoke toan AR audience, I have come to feelthat a deep interest in the comings andgoings—alas as much going as com-ing—of diverse nationalist movements,interesting and entertaining though theyare, has something of the voyeur aboutit. So many years have passed, so manyfalse dawns have come, that it is time tolook closely at our dilemma. It is timenot merely to look closer to home, not

Instead, I shall throw off someideas about how each of us might bemore effective. If I give some of you afew ideas this talk will not have beenin vain.

It’s easy notto be apologetic about our beliefs at anAR meeting. I mean stop apologizingin your daily lives. When we apologizewe are on the defensive. For example, Inever apologize for the British Empire.

 Letters from Readers
Sir — I wonder if Wikipedia’s devo-tion to racial orthodoxy (see “Wikipediaon Race,” July issue) is not a sign of hope. It is frustrating that the race-deniers who edit Wikipedia suppressevidence for race realism, but why arethey so ruthless about it? Are they afraidof us, and of what we say? Becausewe’re right?Curtis McAllen, Jessup, GeorgiaSir — The
Scotsman
newspaperrecently described what it called falseand/or deliberately misleading informa-tion in Wikipedia. It seems the ScottishParent Teacher Council (SPTC) isblaming the online encyclopedia forthe increase in the number of studentsfailing exams. A spokeswoman for theSPTC says, “It’s dangerous when theInternet is littered with opinion andinaccurate information which could betaken as fact,” and warns students not tobelieve everything they read online. Theauthor of the article wrote that when hisson was researching the US civil rights

that Wikipedia was obviously biasedand written by people with “vestedinterests.”Charles Westin, Bangor, MaineSir — I was particularly pleased withthe subhead you chose for “EuropeanNationalism on the March” in the Julyissue. “Lessons for Americans” is spoton. The Europeans have the VlaamsBelang, the British National Party, theFrench National Front, the Swiss Peo-ple’s Party, the Danish People’s Party,and the Lega Nord. And we have . . .nothing. We need an American NationalParty, or an American People’s Party—aparty to represent middle and workingclass whites who’ve been abandoned byboth the Democrat Quislings and VichyRepublicans.William Eckart, Denver, Colo.Sir — Mr. Hood’s account of hisadventures among the Flemings wasthe most inspiring thing I have read in along time. It is wonderful to learn aboutwhites who love their heritage and will

Your magazine describes Mr. Hoodas having been active in American youthmovements. Let us hope he is still ac-tive, and will inspire young Americanswith the spirit of the NSV.Bill Anderson, Birmingham, Ala.Sir — I appreciate your desire toinform AR readers about the BNP’ssuccess in getting Richard Barnbrookelected to the London Assembly, but tocall this a “breakthrough” that “showsthe party is credible political force” islaying it on a bit thick. Yes, he wona seat on the assembly—barely. Thecutoff was 5 percent of the vote, and hegot 5.33 percent. It was the bright spotin what can only be seen as a disappoint-ing performance by the BNP, given theexpectations they had raised. The BNPforecast an increase of 40 local councilseats and three seats on the LondonAssembly. In fact, they picked up onlyone spot on the assembly and 10 localcouncil seats. This was a modest suc-cess. It will not be a breakthrough untilthe BNP wins a seat in Parliament.R. L. Kendle, Vancouver, B. C.,CanadaSir — How discouraging to learnin your July ‘O Tempora’ section thatJames Watson has been going from badto worse. You would think the co-dis-coverer of the structure of DNA—and aman old enough no longer to have careerambitions—would be able to speakhis mind. He clearly knows the truth,because he blurted it out once. But now

He knowsthat a few Ethiopians he may have met,even if they really were “bright,” cannotbe assumed to be a proper sample of black Africans. It is embarrassing to seea man sink so low to seek the approvalof people he knows are wrong.Garrett Stone, Rockford, Ill.Sir — I appreciated Thomas Jack-son’s review of

 in the June issue. I was especially struckby the contempt Yale professor PeterSchuck and Georgetown professor MarcHoward seem to have for democracy.Mr. Shuck believes the public is stupid,while Mr. Howard thinks it is racist andxenophobic. Will the Third-Worldersthey want to replace us with be smarterand less “xenophobic,” or do our elitessimply think they would be less trouble-some?I was also amused by Prof. StephenMacedo’s agony over whether weshould care more about the poor of ourown country than about poor foreigners.

Is that so? How many of these illegal immigrants do you want?How many would you let in? If it doesn’tmatter then say directly that you don’tbelieve in national boundaries at all.How high should taxes go to supportthem? How much extra income tax areyou willing to pay?
Alan:
We have to look at incometax later . . .I hope you notice that in the seconddialogue Michael is not apologizing.Apologizing sounds like weakness, andan impression of weakness is never goodin politics.My next point is about optimists andpessimists. I have often been asked if Iam optimistic about these matters, butI have never understood the question.It’s irrelevant. If we believe, we be-lieve, and it is our duty to act on whatwe believe.Now it is true that for some, especial-ly for a second generation of supportersof any movement, the chance of successplays a crucial role in their decision to

They paint such a nega-tive picture they give the impressionnothing is worth trying.A long time ago there was in theUSA a pro-white racially consciouspublication that was notorious forits pessimism and downbeat report-ing. If you saw someone broodinglike Hamlet and asked “What’s upwith him?” the answer would bethat he had been reading the latestissue. This magazine had an annualseries in which the white personwhom the editor thought had donethe most damage to the white racewould be depicted on the front cover,

There is another kind of pessimist—perhaps we should call him a misan-thrope—who can only see the worst inpeople with whom he disagrees, insteadof trying to work together on the basisof what they hold in common. A well-known British nationalist magazine thatis also out of print took the misanthropicview of Harold Wilson, former Labourprime minister of Britain. He was wellknown for his opposition to Ian Smith’sunilateral declaration of independence
