Post Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
Introduction

This is a review and commentary of the book Beyond This Horizon by Ward Kendall published in 2016 by Alternate Future Publishing. The book’s byline states: “A White Nationalist Blueprint for Tomorrow.” Kendall was born in Texas in 1954 but lives in Southern California. He is the author of several novels, his most successful being Hold Back This Day. I have never read any other book by Kendall. Fiction isn’t my bag. These novels all seem to be centered around the future United States when the nation’s white people are facing extinction. Sorry, but I’ve already read The Turner Diaries and that’s enough racialist fiction for me. Beyond This Horizon is not a novel, however, but a treatise of sorts. Kendall is a white supremacist (although he probably prefers the term white nationalist) and states he became one the first time he saw a black man.

I have been trying for some weeks to get this commentary published on the Stormfront forum where it would do the most good but they have thus far refused. My normal abrasive manner of dealing with those I see as twits I have to hold in check so they won't ban me outright as I state my case to them as forcefully as I can. But they are not budging as of now. So I will put it here. Hopefully I will be doing more than preaching to the choir. It was, in fact, a Stormfront member who recommended this book to me thinking that I am an "alt right" adherent. I didn't deceive anyone, he just assumed it for some reason. I ordered it off Amazon. While I find Kendall's ideas unworkable, that won't stop white nationalists and the hardcore racists from attempting to accomplish his goals as set down in this book. The white nationalists see this time under the Trump regime as their time. Never in the history of this country have organized racists had the opportunity to be so vocal, to grab at the reins of real political power. So they see this golden opportunity as a time to mobilize and to organize. If the average American does not understand what they are dealing with, this absurd idea of the future might get off the ground. It won't work, of course, but how much damage will be done before this is realized? Not so long ago, the idea that Donald Trump would be elected President of the United States was seen as too absurd to seriously entertain and dismissed as a joke. As of late, I'm not laughing.

Beyond This Horizon is not a very long book, 277 pages of large print. I found the writing style to be clear and articulate but not particularly scholarly. Whether this is because Kendall lacks the proper education (I do not know what his educational background is but judging from the occupations he has held it is probably not very extensive) or because he is reaching out to a certain demographic is up-in-the-air. Perhaps a bit of both.

This is a book written for the average white American whose background is likely similar to Kendall’s own. This book is for the white American whose own racial feelings fall towards being somewhat critical and suspicious of non-white people, the white American who looks with contempt upon the ideal of multiculturalism or the Melting Pot, the white American who would not intermarry with non-whites and would not want anyone in his family to do so although he would not become violent or openly antagonistic should this be the case. He would accept it grudgingly and prefer to keep his own contact with non-white people to a minimum. He automatically takes the side of the police whenever one stands accused of brutalizing or murdering a black person because he is an unconscious authoritarian. This book is for the white American who is still relatively young—high school or college age—who feels that the state and federal governments are actively engaged in destroying his future in order to give handouts to non-whites (blacks, in particular). He despises immigrants—especially those with Spanish names—and sees them as competition. He also feels somewhat resentful towards females because they too want more which always seems to mean less for him. He sees them as fickle but he often blames this on feminism. This white American is not particularly religious but leans towards being Christian. He has no interest in becoming a blathering evangelical even if he agrees with a lot of their views. This American feels lost and put upon. He knows the world is changing and that every time it does, he gets kicked in the testicles. He feels taken advantage of. He feels left out of the American dream and the national conversation. He feels like a victim.

But this white American is mainly impressionable and a book as Beyond This Horizon was written to speak to him in a language and at an education level he can understand. As such, it could indeed be an effective indoctrination tool for younger, disillusioned whites who feel disenfranchised by an unjust legal/political/social/moral system in the rigid grip of someone who wants to subjugate and control him but he is not likely to pin this on Jews as this smacks too much of Nazism which makes him uncomfortable. He cares about his own interests and, by extension, those he sees as his people but he is not a virulent racist. He is not Dylan Roof nor does he agree with what Roof did but can sort of understand why he did it. He would never join a neo-Nazi organization or the Klan. To him, Hitler was a crazy German guy who did bad things. Maybe some of Hitler’s ideas were good but he just took things too far. And wearing sheets is for redneck, tobacco-spitting hicks.

No, to this white American, the enemy is not the Jew but rather those the Washington Times refers to as the “Washington elites who have little to fear from public opinion.” Their motive is simply profit and their foot soldiers are the Washington politicians on both the left and the right within the Beltway of the federal government. He likely supported Donald Trump for president for this reason. Hillary Clinton is a hand puppet of these elites (and a woman/feminist) while Trump was an outsider unbetrothed to and unspoiled by the corrupting touch of the elites and, best of all, a white man shamelessly proud and arrogant of his gender and race and unhesitant about telling the liberals where to stick it. But Trump does not only symbolize this white American, he symbolizes hope—that this white American and his kind will not perish and be forgotten in this terribly uncertain future that seems to have no place for him. This white American is what the more hardcore members of his race might term as being 25% to 35% “woke.” Beyond This Horizon hopes to be the coffee that fully snaps him out of his lethargy and energizes him to actively start to build that Alternative Future—to give him a firm grasp of the issues at hand and all that they entail, to install the ideology of White Nationalism in his head in clear, concrete terms, to show him the work that lies before him that must be done first in order to take this Alternate Future from frilly pipe dream to cold, hard reality.

I will post this review in installments. Too much at once is simply…well…too much at once. This will give us a chance to pause, catch our breath and take in the scenery, so to speak. Don’t feel afraid to post if you have questions or take issue with anything. I intend for this thread to be fully participatory.

Post Re: Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
Kendall lays down what he calls eight foundations for American White Nationalism: the first is defining what WN means, the second is defining what being white means, the third foundation is defining a WN economy, the fourth is defining the logistics of relocating non-whites, the fifth is defining a WN government, the sixth is defining the rights and duties of a WN citizen, the seventh is defining WN foreign policy and the eighth and final foundation is defining the goals of the WN civilization.

The first foundation—the defining of what WN means has a lot of truth to it concerning why it has been such a non-starter. Kendall lays much of the blame on neo-Nazism. Much of the WN movement in the U.S. was jump-started by George Lincoln Rockwell, a former Naval officer and aviator, who founded the World Union of Free Enterprise National Socialists (WUFENS) in 1959 in Arlington, Virginia and which became the American Nazi Party (ANP) in 1960 and which later became the National Socialist White People’s Party (NSWPP) in 1967, the year Rockwell was assassinated by a former follower.

Thanks to Rockwell’s efforts, WN emerged in America framed as an outgrowth of the German National Socialists and the Third Reich. Rockwell borrowed their emblems (most notably the swastika), flags and uniforms. He also decried communism and engaged in Holocaust denial (yet also supported it). From that point on, Americans naturally saw WN as essentially neo-Nazism. Kendall makes clear that WN was doomed from the start by embracing Nazism and the Third Reich. Hitler’s Germany was our chief enemy in World War II. Many Americans died fighting against Hitler whom most Americans viewed as a madman and mass murderer of maniacal proportions. Kendall feels that marching around in stormtrooper browns with swastika armbands and throwing Nazi salutes would only anger most white Americans and cause them to reject WN. I believe he is right on that.

Kendall decries internet sites as Stormfront and its owner, Don Black, for being the most salient proponent of WN online today and yet carelessly pushing the Third Reich agenda. He criticizes David Duke and Paul Fromm for the same reason and both are contributors to Stormfront. Duke and Black did, at one time, operate their own Ku Klux Klan organization in the seventies (Rockwell also dabbled in the KKK attending the lectures of Klan preacher Gerald L. K. Smith). Duke, aware of the redneck hick aspect of the Klan, attempted to update it by removing the campy mysticism of such offices with titles as Grand Dragon and Imperial Wizard and instead called himself National Director. No more secret passwords and handshakes. He also did away with the white robes. Needless to say, the Duke-Black Klan fell apart pretty quickly when a former-member named Bill Wilkinson started a rival Klan with the mysticism reinstated full force. Most of Wilkinson’s membership were, in fact, defectors from the Duke-Black Klan. To Kendall, KKK trappings within the WN movement only serve to turn people off.

In short, Kendall decries what he calls “big tent” WN where white supremacist groups of all shades are given voice whether they be Nazi, KKK, Posse Comitatus, Identity Christianity, Creativity, skinheads, National Alliance, hardcore Southern Confederate groups, Aryan Nations and other survivalist offshoots, anarchists or free market capitalists (Kendall includes this last although free market capitalism is not WN of itself although it may be embraced by proponents of WN) whether out of a sense of white power camaraderie or a sense of noblesse oblige. Kendall asserts that this big tent approach is damaging WN and perhaps beyond repair. So, we can see that this book is a blueprint not only of WN in general but of the so-called “alt right” in particular. Basically, Kendall is saying that WN is not merely a conglomeration of different white power organizations operating under one umbrella but is a distinct and separate ideology from any of these others.

Kendall believes part of the problem has been egotistical leadership within the various WN groups. Many of these groups are simply the lengthened shadow of its leader who functions something like a puppet master and when he is gone, the organization itself loses its steam. Kendall specifically mentions William Pierce, author of The Turner Diaries, as an example. After his death in 2002, there was no one else to move into the leadership position in the National Alliance, which Pierce founded, and it ceased to be much of a force in WN. He accuses WN leaders as Black, Duke, Fromm, Sumic and others of getting perilously older without having really engaged their “rank and file” in any meaningful way because they are too enamored with themselves and hence their eventual deaths will simply leave holes and vacuums with an ensuing mad scramble of assorted wannabes and screwballs trying to fill them.

Kendall feels that for a successful WN movement to get off the ground (where it has lain buried for so long) it must conjure in the minds of white Americans good things, pleasant things, things they can relate to—family, home, leisure outings, what Kendall calls “time-honored images of the American heartland.” These are the things that will promote a sense of unity and pride in white Americans far better than a bunch of skinhead thugs slamming in a mosh pit and stomping all over anyone who gets in their way or images of emaciated corpses being thrown into mass burial pits. Kendall states that “the Neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan have repeatedly turned the WN cause upside down, making it into an endless and unpleasant history lesson, rather than an uplifting and modern political affirmation of white interests.”

Instead of drawing attention to “the scourge of Third World invasion,” says Kendall, “the costumed reenactors” keep instead thrusting in images of jackbooted Germans killing American soldiers and or “Confederate rebels slaughtering Yankee troops.” I don’t, however, think the latter is what bothers most whites about KKK imagery in WN and I suspect Kendall actually knows this. They hate it because it forces them to imagine chuckling hicks staring up into trees at handcuffed black men hanging by their necks. But I get his point. Therefore Kendall states that if WN is to survive, all the trappings of Nazism and Confederate rebellion must go. There should be no references whatsoever to Hitler, no uttering of 88, no swastika flags, no death’s heads, no SS runes, no white robes, no Confederate battle flags, no praising Samuel Holloway Bowers, nothing. Perhaps the 14 Words might still be acceptable since they express the very mission of WN as Kendall sees it but perhaps not since they have been so thoroughly linked to 88.

Another thing that Kendall says must go—and this is a biggie in the larger movement—is the glorification or denial of the Holocaust. Don’t even bring it up. In fact, just forget about Jew hatred altogether because it only generates sympathy for the Jews and does nothing but demonize the WN movement. And when these groups extend the Holocaust idea to today’s Jews, well, most white Americans are repulsed and many more turn away in ridicule. Who wants to put up concentration camps and start that mess up all over again?

Kendall further asks how do they plan to round up the Jews? Where will they put them? How will they exterminate them? The problem the Nazis encountered was that while they could kill hundreds of Jews in gas chambers within a half an hour, they couldn’t dispose of the bodies in anything less than several hours each. There are 5.4 million Jews in the United States—about as many that went to the gas chambers in Europe—and there is no way to get rid of that many bodies quickly. Killing a thousand people at once is the worst thing a mass murderer can do if he can’t get rid of the all the rotting corpses. The Nazis first tried to bury them in mass graves but that took much needed space and polluted the ground and infected the water table so they decided to burn them up but this takes hours of constant and very high heat and even then the body is not completely destroyed. In addition, the chimneys of the crematories spewed ashes of the dead for miles and miles around. Germans were literally eating, drinking and breathing the ashes of dead concentration camp victims. In short, it is very expensive and messy to round up, imprison and destroy millions of people.

Moreover, Kendall believes that most neo-Nazis in the U.S. use Jew extermination as an excuse to do nothing. He states that many of these people say that until every last Jew is snuffed out, they cannot begin to realize their dream of utopia. “This effectively relieves the Jew Exterminationist of actually having to do anything productive until the mass extermination is complete, of which they invariably have no idea how to achieve…” He accuses such people as Alex Linder of having “tainted the larger body of White Nationalism, both in the eyes of the mainstream media and in the minds of the average white American, who generally view them as psychopaths.”

If these other white power groups cannot bear to part with the Hitlerian regalia and the Confederate battle flags, says Kendall, then they and true WN (apparently the alt right) must go their separate ways. While Kendall makes a plea for what seems to be a more humane form of WN, there is a noticeable lack of humanity in his words. He never says, for example, that the slaughter of millions of Jews was barbaric or that even if some Jews could be proven to be involved in some kind of anti-white conspiracy, the vast majority of Jews are nevertheless innocent people and should be left alone but simply says that the WN should lay off them because trying to kill them is impractical and it would make them look bad to bring it up. Nowhere does he give any impression of where he personally stands concerning the Jews. He comes across as not really liking Jews much but they are here and we may as well accept it but it would sure make things a whole lot easier if they weren’t here.

The next foundation concerns defining who is white. Kendall’s rather superficial take on this issue is: “Any North American (and greater Anglosphere) individual whose root ancestry is originally of European stock is qualified to be considered white, as commonly defined by that term in Western society.” This includes those white peoples found outside Europe and Russia due to “ancient migrations” although I am not exactly clear on what people he may be referring to. Kendall goes on to include as white those people who “may have traces of non-European ancestry.” In other words, there is no such thing as racial purity and he is not going to uphold the one-drop rule. The one-drop rule was popular in the American South where a seemingly white person would be considered to be black if he or she had even one drop of provably “black” blood from a grandparent or a great-grandparent or a great-great-grandparent. Kendall apparently knows that such a rigid system will only result in a great many white people desperately hiding their family trees and people being ruined by a simple accusation of having such an ancestor. If a person looks white then he or she is white.

But as I said, this is very superficial reasoning and is doomed to fall into insurmountable problems. Kendall doesn’t raise the issue of one’s immediate ancestry. Suppose an American is born of a union of, say, an Irish parent and a Japanese parent but the child of this union has no apparent Japanese features. Is this person white? By Kendall’s criteria, the answer would be yes since the child was born in North America and has a root ancestry from Europe. But suppose another child born under identical circumstances looks more Japanese. Is this person white? No, because he or she doesn’t look white. What about a person who is three-quarters white that doesn’t look to be fully white but her siblings do? Do we consider her non-white and her siblings white? Then there is the mixed individual whom some whites think looks white but other whites do not agree. Is this person white? Kendall makes no attempt to address such issues and yet they are important ones that need to be settled if they were to found a white nation on such criteria otherwise families will be ripped apart which undermines the state. Trying to make such distinctions invariably gives rise to committees that must vote on which individuals are white and which are not and then one ends up with a Nazi-like bureaucracy.

Kendall tries to smooth it over by stating: “If…a stray individual of questionable racial pedigree should, on rare occasion, make it into our racial family, it is no more significance to our overall racial health than when the vast waters of the Atlantic merge and blend along the outer edges of the mighty Pacific: in neither case will such superficial contact significantly effect [sic] the greater body of the entity it touches, and that is all that matters.”

The problem with Kendall’s reasoning here is obvious: How much is too much? What if you have 20 million people of “questionable racial pedigree” claiming white status in your new all-white society of, at best, a hundred million people? Is that too large a percentage? Where is the cut-off point? What are the quotas? Who decides who is white and who is not? What happens to those not deemed white enough? Kendall’s criteria raise more questions than they ever attempted to answer.

Kendall sums it by quoting the late David Lane thusly: “If a person looks White, acts White, fights White, then until their actions prove otherwise, they are our Folk.”

Of course without defining how one acts white or fights white, it’s difficult to imagine what Lane meant. For example, there are plenty of white kids who listen to rap while a great many Asian kids play classical music. Which are acting white? If we say the Asian kids are acting more white, does that make the Asian kids white and the white kids non-white? As for fighting white, who knows what that means—boxing with Marquess of Queensbury rules instead of karate? I suppose the answer I’d most likely receive would be “It means to fight for your race!” How? That’s just a platitude. Same with acting white if I should get the response, “It means don’t do anything to disgrace the white race.” Such as what? Acts as robbing, raping or murdering don’t disgrace one’s race but only the person who committed those crimes. If a white person hurts or kills a non-white person out of racial pride, is that fighting white? Isn’t that the kind of behavior Kendall said turns white people away from WN? So what does it mean? It doesn’t mean anything. David Lane’s brains were addled by all those years he spent in prison where he eventually died and deservedly so.

Bottom line—when a person is considered white, it is because he looks white—period. It’s the only thing that makes any sense. It has nothing to do with actions or morals and it certainly has nothing to do with one’s fighting style. These are beside the point. One can be a paragon of virtue but that doesn’t make one white unless one looks white. That is the sole determinant. The WN movement is, when all is said and done, nothing more than a movement hung up on appearances. Nothing else matters.

Post Re: Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
This leads us to Kendall’s own question: Why is Whiteness Important? He writes: “Whiteness is simply the easiest and swiftest way that nature has provided us, as a means to identify people like ourselves…” He goes on to explain a lot of malarkey about shared morals and literature and so on. For example, he writes: “A white skin…tells the observer that ‘packaged’ within one’s body is the same racial DNA that produced Shakespeare, Goethe, Newton, and Galileo.” This is the thing about racism that I find tiresome--that somehow the achievements of one white person automatically becomes the achievement of all white people. If we can do that then there is no reason such achievements cannot be shared by the entire human race.

Then, there is no such thing as “racial DNA.” Nothing—and I mean nothing—in our DNA specifies us as Caucasoid, Negroid or Mongoloid. There is not a single gene found in one human being that is not found in human beings all across this so-called racial spectrum. You may have blues eyes and blonde hair and I don’t but I have the same gene responsible for blue eyes in me as well as the gene responsible for blonde hair. You could say, they are there but switched off. Likewise the genes responsible for black hair and brown eyes are present in you but due to mutation have produced a variant that causes a different color. We call these variant genes alleles which are genes with two variations: dominant and recessive. The alleles that are responsible for blue eyes and blonde hair are recessive (what I meant by switched off) in me but the ones responsible for brown eyes and black hair are dominant. Why are some alleles dominant in some people and recessive in others? Because our ancestors came from different geographical areas with different climates and other conditions. Hot, tropical regions tend make the allele responsible for dark skin dominant because dark skin fares better in such a climate. Colder, darker regions tend to make the allele for lighter skin dominant because it fares better in such a climate. In other words, these alleles were determined by natural selection.

So the sum total of all your alleles, i.e. inherited genetic variations, is your genotype. They make you an individual (unless you have an identical twin). Which alleles are dominant and which are recessive as well as some of your learned behaviors determine your phenotype. For example, a person may have alleles for red hair and brown hair but the latter is recessive and the former dominant. This person may have alleles for green eyes and brown eyes but the latter is recessive and the former is dominant. This person may have alleles for dark skin and fair skin with freckles but the latter is dominant. Then those dominant genes determine which traits will manifest themselves—in this case, red hair, green eyes and freckles—and that is that person’s phenotype. In short, your genotype makes you what you are while your phenotype makes you who you are. Another way to look at it is that your genotype is a palette of alleles that are used to paint a portrait with one of a few specific colors combinations and techniques which would be the phenotype except that the palette has colors and pigments on it that will not be used but were simply inherited. All human beings have nearly identical palettes of colors and pigments but the portraits painted from the palettes are only one of a few sets of color combinations and techniques. This is where the concept of race comes from.

The human race is, in fact, incredibly homogenous genetically speaking, at least 99.5%—far more so than our nearest primate relative, the chimpanzee. This is because of the fact that we are a comparatively new species on the planet. Racist ideologues still like to trot out the concept of race found in the 19th century version of Meyers Konversations-Lexikon, 4th edition where Caucasoids are characterized by high, narrow noses and Negroids by protruding jaws and long skulls and Mongoloids by wide faces with high cheekbones. These are useless classifications because all three of these groups will each run the gamut of these same features. This is aside from the fact that no two people will even agree what constitutes a high, narrow nose or a long skull or high cheekbones.

Race is a social construct—a heresy among the racist ideologues. This can be proven simply noting that we use terms as “black” and “white” to describe race. How many people do you know who are truly and literally white? None. Even albinos have some amount of pigmentation because we are all have melanin glands which produce pigment. Likewise, have you ever seen someone who is literally black? No. Very dark-brown perhaps but not literally black. But we use these inaccurate and polarizing terms to describe the Caucasoid and Negroid peoples. These very people use them to describe themselves and each other.

So why are so-called white people white? The racial ideologues obviously believe it is some sort of marking off from other races. That they are God’s Chosen (Identity Christianity). Kendall refers to it color-coding so we can tell the races apart and mark ourselves off because we weren’t meant to mix. I have read about people believing, for example, that the white race is directly descended from angels in heaven or that it is descended from a race of advanced extra-terrestrials. Back in the 1950s during the flying saucer contactee craze, the “Venusians” were always said to be blonde-haired and blue-eyed (i.e. the Aryan god-men of ancient Indian literature flying around in their vimana). A white supremacist named William Dudley Pelley firmly believed that the white race was descended from an extra-terrestrial race that may have been synonymous with angels and preached this line to the membership of his Brown Shirt-like organization generally known as the Silver Shirts (officially called the Silver Legion of America) in the 1930s which contained such racial ideologues as Gerald L.K. Smith (Klan preacher and early founder of Identity Christianity), Wesley Swift (Smith’s protégé and founder of the Identity-based Church of Jesus Christ-Christian), Henry Lamont Beach (founder of the Posse Comitatus) and Richard Girnt Butler (founder of the Aryan Nations and former member of Swift’s church). In other cases, the extra-terrestrials were at least some form of Caucasian and friendly if not beatific. When the MIB or Men-In-Black ETs gained ascendancy in the 1960s to become a permanent part of UFO lore, they were short, dark, “Oriental” in appearance and just happened to resemble the very people the U.S. was fighting half a world away in Southeast Asia. Predictably, the MIB were always sinister, malevolent, creepy and evil. White aliens good; dark aliens bad. White comes from god and dark/black comes from Satan (known in puritanical New England as “the Black Man”).

Consider the following passage from The Turner Diaries by William Pierce (under the pen name of Andrew Macdonald) when the novel’s protagonist, Earl Turner, learns the truth about the origins of the white race:

I had barely sat down when a girl brought me a plate of sandwiches and a mug of hot coffee. I thanked the girl, and, as I was hungry, I began sipping the coffee and munching a sandwich while I casually read the first page of the material in the binder.

When I finished the last page some four hours later I noticed that the sandwiches—including an uneaten portion of the one I had started—were still on the plate. The mug was nearly full of thoroughly cold coffee. It was as if I had just returned to earth—to the room—after a thousand-year voyage through space.

What I had read—it amounted to a book of about 400 typed pages—had lifted me out of this world, out of my day-to-day existence as an underground fighter for the Organization, and it had taken me to the top of a high mountain from which I could see the whole world, with all its nations and tribes and races, spread out before me. And I could see the ages spread out before me too, from the steaming, primordial swamps of a hundred million years ago to the unlimited possibilities which the centuries and the millennia ahead hold for us.

The book placed our present struggle—the Organization and its goals and what is at stake—in a much larger context than I have ever really considered before. That is, I had thought about many of the things in the book before, but I had never put them all together into a single, coherent pattern. I had never seen the whole picture so clearly.

(Note to the reader: It is obvious that Turner is referring to the Book. We know from other evidence that it was written approximately ten years before the Record of Martyrs, in which it is mentioned—i.e., probably sometime in 9 BNE, or 1990 according to the old chronology. Turner mentions “typed pages,” but it is not clear whether he means reproductions of typewritten pages or the originals themselves. If the latter is the case, then we may have here the only extant reference to the original copy of the Book! Several reproductions of the original typescript in binders fitting Turner’s description have survived and are preserved in the Archives, but archeologists still have found no trace of the original.)

For the first time I understand the deepest meaning of what we are doing. I understand now why we cannot fail, no matter what we must do to win and no matter how many of us must perish in doing it. Everything that has been and everything that is yet to be depend on us. We are truly the instruments of God in the fulfillment of His Grand Design. These may seem like strange words to be coming from me, who has never been religious, but they are utterly sincere words.


So Pierce and devotees of the novel likely believe that somehow the white race has some kind of divine origin from a very ancient time and are white specifically because of that. The other races are darker because they have a wholly separate and non-divine origin. The white race comes from the sky—the place of pure celestial light and will someday return there—while the other races come from the dust of the earth and are hence the “mud people” and to the mud they shall return. Kendall seems to believe something along these lines when he states: “…[L]et us unite in the goal of improving the white race through genetics and science, to further refine what we are, both physically and mentally, so that we may one day become greater still, until our destiny is without limit, and the Stars above lie truly within our grasp.”

Kendall stated that WN should rely on science and genetics and I agree so let’s look at the scientific evidence concerning our genetics. The reason Europeans have light skin is simply due to diet and adaptation to habitat (which is also the same reason Africans have very dark skin and so on).

There may have been Homo sapiens in Europe around 700,000 years ago but prior to that, H. sapiens was found only in Africa. H. erectus and H. neanderthalensis were already in Europe from 1.8 million years ago up to 20,000 years ago. We do know that about 45,000 years ago, H. sapiens hunter-gatherers of the second great migratory line out of Africa called M89 had migrated out of Africa to the Middle East. They were, of course, dark-skinned but 90-95% of all non-African humans are descendants of M89. This line arose from the first great migratory line out of Africa designated at M168. They were the first Caucasians although most people today would simply pronounce them to be Negroes and Semitics. Some of the peoples that comprise M89 stayed in the Middle East but others, probably following migrating herds of animals on which they depended for food and skins, journeyed across Central Asia and eventually migrated into North America from Siberia.

Image
Based on available genetic and forensic research, science has reconstructed the face of the first Caucasoids to enter Europe.

Based on extensive genome sequencing of ancient peoples of Europe, we know there were also dark-skinned hunter-gatherers in Hungary, Luxembourg and Spain about 8500 years ago. These people would have resembled the Tutsi people of Africa. They lacked the alleles that cause skin depigmentation. These alleles are now designated as SLC24A5 and SLC45A2.

The African caucasoids still exist.

The Caucasoid race is largely dependent on genes from Asia—particularly Mongolia, Siberia and Turkestan from perhaps 30,000 years ago. These Asians would have looked like Aborigines, Melanesians or Ainu and comprised fully 2/3 of the genes of the Caucasoid race. The y-chromosome lineages in Northern and Atlantic Caucasians linked them inextricably to North and East Asians. This is haplogroup Q of genetic marker M242 which diversified into Central and Northern Europeans, Polynesians and American Indians. In Europe, there are two types (called subclades) hg Q—one from the Middle East and one found in both northern and eastern Europe and these blended together through interbreeding. Haplogroup Q originated in north and east Asia and its presence, for example, in Sweden can be explained easily because the Scandinavians have close and intimate contact with Mongoloid peoples through Inuits and the Saami people (often called Laplanders). Q is not found homogenously over Europe which also has haplogroups as the R1b and I1b subclades, for example.

About 7700 years ago, hunter-gatherers in Scandinavia did have these depigmentation alleles and so had fair skin. They also had the alleles HERC2 and OCA2 which are responsible for blonde hair and blue eyes. How they got these genes is not precisely known but they likely came from Asia. Farmers from the Near East entered Europe and bred with the darker peoples of Central and Southern Europe bringing with them the allele SLC24A5 which caused the Central and Southern Europeans to get lighter but SLC45A2 was in low supply until about 5800 years ago when it suddenly began to spread which again caused the Central and Southern Europeans to get even lighter more like the Northern European hunters.

Image
The Laplanders or Sami as they preferred to be called are nomads of extreme northern Scandinavia. They are clearly both Caucasoid and Mongoloid as these three woman demonstrate.

About 4500 years ago, a very sizable group of herders from the Black Sea region called the Yamnaya migrated into Europe. They brought in alleles for tallness. Other alleles for tallness were already present in Central and Northern Europe about 8000 years ago but the Yamnaya allele made them even taller while alleles responsible for shortness made their way into the Mediterranean region about that same time. The Yamnaya may have also brought the first Indo-European languages.

All these early European peoples had one problem: they lacked the LCT gene and so were lactose intolerant and could not digest the sugars in milk. Ötzi the Iceman, for example, had brown hair and eyes and was lactose intolerant. Dairy consumption would have caused acute loss of bowel control which could result in death. This was a major problem for the very light-skinned, blue-eyed hunter-gathering nomads of Northern Europe. Without dairy, they suffered from vitamin D deficiency (hypovitaminosis D) which can cause bone deformation, pain, asthma and other issues and lighter skin helped them capture UV radiation from sunlight to synthesize vitamin D (melanin inhibits this synthesation). But lighter skin was not enough to prevent hypovitaminosis D as evidence shows it was still a problem. However, about 4300 years ago, genome analysis shows that lactose tolerance (the gaining of the LCT gene) was suddenly introduced into Europe and spread very quickly although exactly how this happened is a mystery but not an unsolvable one since it could have been introduced by a single person with a genetic variation.

But lactose tolerance would have spread quickly by natural selection because it alleviated hypovitaminosis D since dairy products are rich in vitamin D. This would indicate that the Europeans starting about 4300 years ago needed to keep dairy on supply at all times. Since milk is hard to keep for long periods without spoilage, they would have needed to process dairy to keep and this would have resulted in cheese and even mold doesn’t destroy the entire cheese and often even encouraged to grow on it. While cheese is found around the world, Europe is and always has been the world’s center of cheese-making and the most popular cheeses today are European—Swiss, cheddar, brie, gouda, parmesan, mozzarella, asiago, limburger, bleu, feta, Roquefort, stilton, ricotta, Cheshire, etc. Although the exact place of the origin of cheese is not known, Europe is strongly suspected of being that place. We know that cheese-making only arose, at best, less than 5000 years ago because Europeans before that could not have consumed it without incurring some terrible digestion problems.

So from science, we see that the modern white race has only been in existence for well less than 5000 years and is not from a long, ancient lineage descending from the gods or whatever other pseudoscientific beliefs the white racists may have about their phenotype. Five genes underwent natural selection processes that resulted in the modern white race a little over 4000 years ago. Even though the White Nationalists decry interbreeding, their race is a product of interbreeding. Waves of interbreeding produced the modern white person and wasn’t simply a cold climate causing light skin but genes introduced via interbreeding. Without this interbreeding, there never would have been a white race.

Post Re: Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
To prove how muddled and stupid “modern liberalism” is, Kendall then engages the reader in a test called “Are You a Racist?” consisting of 20 statements each followed by the phrase: “If you don’t then you’re a racist.” I won’t go through all 20 as a few will suffice for the reader to get idea of the strawmen Kendall sets up. The first statement, for example, is:

· “You must love all races, ethnic groups, cultures, and societies equally.” No one says anyone must do this except for perhaps a few internet SJWs whom virtually everybody despises. The truth is, obviously, that not loving all races, ethnic groups, cultures and societies equally is completely harmless whereas looking upon them with contempt or hatred (WNs are very sensitive about using the word “hatred” to describe their feelings towards other races, ethnic groups, cultures and societies) is far from harmless and has often been lethal.
· “You must believe that all races should, whenever and wherever possible, interbreed with one another.” This is, of course, ridiculous. Not even the internet SJWs believe this. People should be able to fall in love with and “interbreed” with whom they choose of any race or ethnicity without facing hostility from others. To state this as though it is some sort of mandate is just stupid.
· “You must believe that Martin Luther King died with a spotless moral record to his name even though extensive government evidence proves he did not.” I don’t know anyone who believes this. King’s womanizing is well known and no one denies it.
· “You must never make the claim that an American rocket engine is ‘superior’ in any way to an African clay pot or a Jamaican voodoo doll under any circumstances, scientific or otherwise. Both are to be considered ‘equal creations’ to the rocket engine and must henceforth be defined as such.” I suspect here that Kendall is saying a rocket engine is a product of a superior mind but I would disagree. It is a product of an advanced technology but we have to keep in mind that the civilization that achieved that level of technology did so on the backs of slave and menial labor and involved keeping certain people suppressed to remain permanently at that level so that they will be fit for little else. We can always attribute this to the idea that they are, in fact, fit for nothing else. That's the easy part. By the way, there is no such thing as a Jamaican voodoo doll. That would be Haiti.
· “You must never deny the validity of IQ tests when you are discussing Asian scores, since Asian scores generally outrank all other racial groups. However, on any particular IQ test where Asians have failed to make the highest scores, then you must emphatically deny the validity of that particular IQ test.” I can only assume with this statement, Mr. Kendall thought he was leaving Asians out of the discussion too much and had to come up with something concerning Asians to bitch about. On the other hand, it’s no more nonsensical than his other statements.
· “You must believe without question that the American Indian was the first man to walk this continent. You must believe it even though there is now strong anthropological evidence that supports a European presence in North America first.” There is such evidence. Stone tools of the type found in Europe have been unearthed along the northeast coast of North America and have been dated as far back as 26,000 years predating the Indians by as much as 10,000 years. But the modern white race only came into existence maybe 4500 years ago. The white phenotype has only been in existence for about 8000 years. If these tools came from Europe, they were brought by the dark-skinned Caucasoids of the type discussed earlier.

Foundation 3 deals with defining a WN economy and Kendall does so in four statements:

· No more job outsourcing.
· No more needless bloodshed.
· No more homelessness, full employment.
· No more foreign aid.

Kendall is a capitalist stating that it was how America rose to greatness. He decries multiculturalism, egalitarianism and globalism as having largely destroyed this system. Combine that with illegal immigration and job outsourcing and the seeds of inevitable doom have been sown—unless WN can put a stop to it. Kendall’s solution is the four points listed above.

While these four points are not altogether a bad plan, the devil, as they say, is in the details (a phrase that should be the motto of Kendallian WN). A WN economy, he says, will save billions of dollars because, after kicking out all the non-whites (yes, of course, we will explore this in great detail later), there will be a huge amount of money freed up that right now is being wasted on “North America’s massive welfare, Head Start programs, Affirmative Action programs, drug and gang programs, teen pregnancy programs, AIDS programs, inner-city rejuvenation programs, multicultural indoctrination programs, diversity programs, race relations programs, hate crime programs,” etc. can be funneled into infrastructure, education and industry.

This plan sounds nice but that’s all it is—something that sounds nice. It has no chance to ever work. Let us assume that the white nationalists actually manage to take over the U.S. and kick out the non-whites without triggering a massive civil war that would destroy the country and cause massive international upheaval, does Kendall really believe that with all the non-whites gone that there would be no need for teen pregnancy programs, AIDS or drug programs? Does he really believe gangs are a non-white phenomenon? They started among young whites in the rural Southern and Appalachian regions where my father grew up in the 1920s and 30s where he had plenty of opportunities to run into them—or rather run away from them. There will always be trouble-making kids going into criminal enterprises and pitting themselves against authority figures to prove themselves and to make quick illicit profit.

Does Kendall or any white supremacist really believe there are no whites on welfare? Currently, the U.S. spends about $132 billion annually on welfare and the number of Americans receiving welfare assistance is 110,489,000. There are 10,200,000 people on unemployment insurance. 41,700,000 receive food stamps. This puts 35.4% of the population on some form of welfare. Whites comprise 38.8% of all people on welfare while 39.8% are black, 15.7% are Latino and Asians number at 2.4%. Another 3.3% are listed as “other.” Note that these percentages are not the percentage of that demographic on welfare but the percentage of the welfare recipients who are of that demographic—two different things. Other programs as Medicaid are also a form of welfare and a great many people depend of Medicaid. In an all-white America, there are still going to be sick people, disabled people, elderly people in need of medicine, people who suffer from clinical depression, paranoid schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and a huge host of other diseases rendering such people incapable of working. Then there will always be those who simply refuse to work. They’ll scam the system endlessly to find ways of getting out of having to work for a living. Since the types of people who would favor an all-white society would necessarily be the type to be fanatical about second amendment rights, there will be a lot of guns which means there will be a lot of shootings. Likewise, there will still be economic downturns, recessions, plant closures, layoffs, bankruptcies, bank foreclosures and the like. There must always be a government-run safety net to catch people who have fallen or that society is asking for trouble.

Foundation 3 deals with defining a WN economy and Kendall does so in four statements:

· No more job outsourcing.
· No more needless bloodshed.
· No more homelessness, full employment.
· No more foreign aid.

Kendall is a capitalist stating that it was how America rose to greatness. He decries multiculturalism, egalitarianism and globalism as having largely destroyed this system. Combine that with illegal immigration and job outsourcing and the seeds of inevitable doom have been sown—unless WN can put a stop to it. Kendall’s solution is the four points listed above.

There are over 100 million non-white people in the U.S. The largest group are the Hispanic/Latino people at 56.6 million. That’s a tremendous number of people to deport and finding countries that could take that many would be impossible. Also, over nine million people identify as mixed race. Those that can’t pass for white would also be deported.

Kendall makes this mass forced exodus sound easy but a real world check demonstrates what a monumental undertaking it would be. There are about 13.5 million Syrian refugees currently requiring humanitarian aid. Of them, 4.8 million are seeking asylum outside of Syria. Look at how difficult the task of finding host countries to take them all in is and Kendall is talking about relocating 100 million at the very least! He says it could be done in five years. That’s 23.8 million people a year for five consecutive years! There is no way to relocate that many people no matter what incentives are offered to accomplish it.

Such an undertaking is not humanly possible for a number of reasons:

· The amount of manpower needed to round up 100 million people would take an unrealistic toll on the nation’s resources. We simply cannot do it.

· Kendall seems to think that the deportation force could be our own military but the numbers of non-whites in the armed forces would cripple those forces if those personnel were suddenly removed. There are about 1.4 million personnel in the United States armed forces. About 25.4% of the armed forces are minority with the highest percentage being in the Navy (33.8%). More than a quarter of the Army (26.1%) is minority. These would leave a huge number of occupations unfilled resulting in overworked personnel, a reduced deportation force or forced conscription to fill the vacancies and those people would have to be trained from scratch and that takes time.

· Just the ethical ramifications are troubling. So a non-white person has given 15 years or so of his or her life to serving their country and suddenly, though they have committed no crime, they are stripped of rank and citizenship and thrown into a detention center to await deportation to some unknown destination. Meanwhile, tens of millions of whites who have never served their country a single day in their lives and have no intention of ever doing so are deemed more valuable to society simply by dint of the color of their skin. They would vigorously resist being conscripted and either revolt or flee the country. That simply does not work.

· The removal of over 100 million people would leave large swaths of the country—both in the urban and rural areas—significantly under populated. Entire neighborhoods would fall into abandonment and disrepair. If you need to see the effect this has on an area, visit Detroit which has large areas that are no longer populated because the former-residents packed up and fled to the surrounding suburbs. The yards, lots and sidewalks are overgrown with uncut grass and weeds while the houses fall apart and the pavement fragments and crumbles for block after block after block. The end result of a mass deportation that Kendall prescribes as a solution to the ills of the nation would only turn the entire country into Detroit.

Kendall’s reason that America must be transformed into an all-white state is because of IQ. Blacks and Latinos drag down the U.S.’s mean IQ. This is a frequent excuse that white supremacists resort to. We know it’s a sham in Kendall’s case (and I strongly suspect it to be the case for virtually all white supremacists) because his bio points out that Kendall became a racialist the first time he ever saw a black man. What does that mean? It means Kendall doesn’t care how smart that man is, he is repulsed by the man’s skin pigmentation and that, I believe, is what lies at the root of white racist thinking—not IQ, not crime rate, not education, not anything but contempt for those who are dark as dung or have funny-shaped slits for eyes.

Asians, after all, have the highest IQs in the world. The top six international mean IQs go to Far Eastern nations or city-states: Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China and Singapore so Asian-Americans ought to be considered primary candidates of retention in an all-white society. Are they? No. Kendall contradicts himself in his “Are You a Racist?” segment when he sarcastically states: “You must never deny the validity of IQ tests whenever you are discussing Asian scores, since Asian scores generally outrank all other racial groups. However, on any particular IQ test where Asian have failed to make the highest scores, you must emphatically deny the validity of that particular IQ test.” Aside from a total lack of evidence to prove his assertions, his statement is basically saying, “IQ isn’t everything.” On that, I agree with him but it contradicts his idea that IQ should be the measuring stick between the division of the races.

I am not going to launch into a big discussion on what IQ measures and whether it is an accurate gauge for anything because it is enough to show that white supremacist justifications that involve IQ are a sham. If the worst inner city blacks were white, there would be no discussion about IQ or crime rate or the need to segregate from them. Kendall already made the statement that nature has conveniently color-coded the races to make them easier to separate and that should be justification enough for a racist. There is no need to drag IQ or anything else into it.

The solution, says Kendall, is to “relocate” the non-white races from the North American continent. He writes: “At present, there is an estimated sixty to seventy million blacks, mestizos, mixed-race, and Asiatic peoples now living in North America that are eligible for relocation. Primary destinations for relocation are: Africa, Asia, Mexico, Central & South America, and various islands stretching all the way from the Caribbean to the far-flung atolls of the South Pacific.”

As I mentioned earlier, the Census shows at least 100 million non-whites in the U.S. Earlier in the book, Kendall stated: “Most Jew Exterminationists, when questioned, cannot (or will not) explain just how they plan to round up millions of American’s Jews and liquidate them…” Kendall, on the other hand, at least tries to but he falls far short of any mark.

First he claims that the enslavement of black Africans centuries ago was a mistake. “The solution, then, is to undo this monumental mistake and return the descendants of America’s slave populations to Africa and, if need be, to nearby Mexico.” As though pronouncing the taking of slaves to be a mistake somehow justifies uprooting some 30 million black Americans from their homes and sending them to Africa where virtually none have ever been. Mr. Kendall apparently believes that two wrongs make a right.

Kendall further justifies such a move by claiming that since these Americanized blacks have white blood, they’ll raise the IQ of the native populations of Africa through interbreeding. At this point, I seriously have to wonder if he wrote this with a straight face or did any research. He gives the average IQ of American blacks as 80 yet countries as Sierra Leone in West Africa have a mean IQ of 91, Eritrea in northeast Africa has a mean IQ of 85, Nigeria and Uganda are at 84. So once again Kendall simply does not know what he is talking about.

To facilitate the removal, Kendall says that relocation centers will be established. “Round the clock fleets of busses, followed by freight trucks and rail cars bearing the personal belongings of America’s mestizo population, would transport and then deposit them one hundred miles behind the Mexican border, at which point the Mexican government would assume complete responsibility for their welfare. Their return will not be possible since, by that time, a fortified concrete wall would be firmly in place, and heavily armed with WN troops. As with Africa and Asia, however, a white nationalist government would (for a limited period) provide generous monetary aid to Mexico, in order to smooth the transition of these relocated Mestizo populations.”

The cost of moving 100 million people all across the New World and the Pacific? Only $200-300 billion, according to Kendall. How does he arrive at this figure? The same way he arrives at how many buses, freight trucks and rail cars would be needed. He simply assumes it can be done. Under what circumstances does Mexico simply decide to accept these millions of people? It would be necessary to force them to and that involves starting a war which would be denounced all over the world and foster further refusal to cooperate which, in turn, fosters further wars. Kendall seems to think that relocating 100 million people (or even 60-70 million as he claims) could be done humanely. History will easily bear out that the very act of uprooting and relocating even small populations is inherently inhumane. It has never been accomplished without the shedding of blood and a great many tears.

Whereas Kendall does his best to come across as a sane, sensible white nationalist, we see that such people can be neither sane nor sensible. Kendall is, in fact (and it will become more apparent as we move along), a subhuman piece of slime.

Post Re: Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
So that leads us to Foundation #4: On Defining the Logistics of Relocating Non-Whites. Since we’ve already written extensively about this topic, there is no need to recap it. Instead let’s look at some points I didn’t bring up. One is the realization that no relocation can take place without fierce resistance. Kendall seems oblivious to the dangers posed. He says that Congress will pass a Minority Relocation Act and that those minorities “who refuse to comply, immediate arrest and detainment would result.” But isn’t that essentially what the Minority Relocation Act consists of? He is saying that those minorities that refuse to be arrested and detained to face deportation will be immediately arrested and detained to face deportation. This is virtually encouragement to resist as vigorously as possible by showing minorities they have nothing to lose via extreme resistance. Face it: the only way to send a message not to resist is to kill resisters.

Kendall doesn’t seem to understand just how deep and widespread that resistance would be. That kind of underestimation would be lethal to the white nationalists. He writes: “Should pockets of minority civil resistance erupt, or outright gun violence break out, then police and US military forces would immediately swing into action.” Hmm, I kind of think the resistance would be nationwide and raging in virtually every neighborhood. Neither the police nor the military (now depleted due to a purging of minorities from its ranks) would be equipped to handle it. They would be swept aside like corks in a deluge. The country would be caught up in a bloody civil war which would shut the country down. This would leave the country vulnerable to attack and plunge the international markets into deep depression.

Not done showing how clueless he is, Kendall winds it up by writing: “In the end, what is needed here is a firm policy that makes it clear to America’s minorities that it is to everyone’s advantage that the Minority Relocation Act be carried out with as little disruption as possible.” To everyone’s advantage? How would this be to the advantage of minorities to simply allow themselves to be uprooted and deported without a fight? Quite the contrary, it would be an advantage to those who favor this Minority Relocation Act and why would minorities want to make it easy for them?

White nationalists need to ask themselves do they really want to live in a society where venturing outside could be lethal to their health? If blacks are the vicious criminals that white nationalists believe they are, do they really want to go to war with these people? Do they want their children to grow up in a society with snipers and car bombs? Where they could be ambushed at any moment and beaten to death? Because that is the future they face should they attempt to implement any type of minority relocation. They would be bringing upon themselves the very thing they insist they are trying to prevent.

While Kendall doesn’t bother to consider how minorities would feel about being relocated against their will, he is just as clueless as to how whites would feel about it. What are the white nationalists going to do about all the whites who would also vigorously resist white nationalism? In a nation of about 300 million people, the best Kendall could hope to have that would favor a WN government is perhaps 100 million and that’s being very generous. He assumes the white nationalists would have the police and the military on their side and even if they did they would be outnumbered 3:1. There would certainly be more whites opposed to a WN government than those that favor it. This also doesn’t take into account defectors—whites who originally favor a WN government who then, for one reason or other, now oppose it.

Lastly, Kendall does not address the overthrowing of the Constitution because the Minority Relocation Act would certainly be ruled unconstitutional. In order to get it passed and made law, the Constitution would have to be bypassed or eliminated. At that point, there is no United States of America any longer. I am not sure if Kendall realizes that this is what he is advocating but I get the feeling he couldn’t care less if he is.

And that brings us to the WN political system.

Post Re: Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
The basis for the WN system of government is what Kendall calls “Merivocracy,” i.e., a merit-based voting system. Merivocracy will end the one-man/one-vote system of electing leaders where a single person can earn enough merit that his vote will count as twenty votes. The electoral college will also be done away with as will corporate and private campaign contributions. A state-allocated fund will be available to all candidates equally and all states will have the same amount.

The two-party system will be eliminated by dividing the US in to ten US Regions. Each region will consist of five states:

· Pacific Region
· Southwest Region
· Inland Northwest Region
· Gulf Coast Region
· Southeast Region
· Plains Region
· Inland Northern Region
· Central Region
· New England Region
· Mid-Atlantic Region

I’m not clear on this but it appears there will be a governor for each region rather than a governor for every state. Every state will elect a presidential and vice-presidential candidate. Then a second election will be held to determine which of these teams will represent the Five-State Region to which their state belongs. Kendall doesn’t tell us which states are in which region other than the Pacific Region (Hawaii, California, Alaska, Oregon, Washington). Then there will be a nationwide election to determine which team will lead the entire country. Popular vote will determine the winner. They will serve a four-year term and then a new election will be held. Neither person can ever again run as president or vice-president.

Each state will elect a single senator to a single four-year term after which that person can never again run for senator.

Instead of a congress, there will be a governing legislative body of twenty members consisting of the presidential/vice-presidential candidates that ran in the last election. There will be 18 from the nine regions which did not see their candidates elected and the runner-up team from the region whose chosen candidates were elected to lead the country. They would be called the United States Council and would have more power than the governors. A bill must receive eleven votes to get to the Senate where twenty-six votes would be necessary to pass the bill into law. The president would not sign the bill into law but does have the power to veto the bill. If the vetoed bill is again introduced for a vote, it must now have thirty-six votes to override the veto and become law. If the bill fails a second attempt, it cannot be reintroduced again until the current administration leaves office.

Non-white immigration is permanently forbidden and no amendment or revision to existing law may be introduced to subvert it. Non-whites may be allowed to enter the country for business purposes or for limited tourism. Only embassies and consulates may take up permanent residence but will be severely restricted by law. No one may run for office who advocates altering the white-only policy of the nation. English will be the official language.

I find the idea of allowing non-white embassies and consuls within the WN America to be a cop-out. If Kendall wants a white-only society, then it should be white only. The same with tourism—no non-white tourism. If whites are so smart and resourceful, why would they need to swing political and/or business deals with non-white countries? This appears to be for one purpose—money. So Kendall is ready to sell his precious WN society for a few bucks from a non-white’s purse. If you’re going to do it then do it all the way. Anything less is a hypocritical betrayal of one’s racial principles.

But the truth is, while a WN nation could, in theory, be founded under the fiery zeal of white supremacy, that zeal will wear off in a couple of generations. Soon, there will be many who will not understand what makes the white supremacy necessary and this will become a very strong feeling in the grip of an economic downturn. If the WN American economy tanks and China dangles a proposal to build Chinese-run factories or to provide employment to those Americans willing to relocate to China, no amount of white supremacist zeal will prevent Americans from accepting the offer. Racial supremacy functions much easier on a full stomach. Traditionally in the US, whites have found blaming non-whites for dragging down the country during times of economic strife to be the order of the day but in an all-white society who do they blame but one another? Non-white countries that present a way out of those economics straights will resemble saviors far more than enemies.

I also find the idea that a person can accumulate a vote of twenty times the power of a single vote to be particularly useless and destroying the integrity of popular-vote-based elections. It will do nothing but breed resentment. Suppose a land-owner with nineteen hands is presented with a petition for better working conditions. Each hand votes yea but the land-owner (who has accumulated twenty-power vote) simply votes neigh. He wins. That begs a revolt to happen. If popular vote determines elections then it is essential that each vote be restricted to one to a person otherwise those with twenty-power votes could band together and determine outcomes they desire over the masses and this is no better than what we have today. There would be no doubt that those with twenty-power votes would be wealthy and influential men (or almost entirely men) and so it would just be the rich calling the shots all over again. It’s an unnecessary temptation for corruption.

This blueprint is so half-baked that Kendall has not even defined the role of the judiciary in a WN government. Will there even be a Supreme Court of the United States? How will the justices be appointed? Should the appointment be for life? Are their rulings final? If a WN government is to function smoothly, the role of the judiciary is of paramount importance. But from Kendall we get silence on the matter and this makes his blueprint completely useless.

Post Re: Review and commentary of BEYOND THIS HORIZON by Ward Kendall
The main problem with this Merivocacy of Kendall’s is that, while he claims John Stuart Mill as the inspiration for it, it can’t work as Mill envisioned. Mill, who lived from 1806 to 1873, did not live in time where racial issues were in question. Sure there were slavery and antislavery issues but most whites were in agreement that blacks were racially inferior. Mill never had to grapple with that issue. Suppose a man in this all-white nation earns himself a power 10 vote. Suppose that he is well respected in his community and people want him to run for government. Suppose that he starts to preach that racial discrimination is wrong and that this all-white country should admit non-whites. Suppose that what he says starts to gain traction. What is going to happen to this man? Either he overthrows the all-white policy of his country or he is suppressed from accomplishing it. Merit can never be allowed the last word in a society based upon race. Since it is a race-based society then race must always be the ultimate deciding factor. Kendall simply assumes this will never happen but never is a big word.

Kendall posits what he sees as a solution of sorts: micro-societies. A micro-society is a society where people with a certain predilection may indulge in it as long as it is kept confined to a small geographic area. For instance, those whites who decide that they are gay and want to marry another gay would be allowed to do so as long as a small portion of the land is designated for gay couples. He cites Las Vegas as an example where people who love to gamble can go and indulge as long as it is kept confined there. What happens when the white citizens with a fetish for people of another race demand a micro-society of their own?

The problem with micro-societies, of course, is what happens when that geographic confinement is no longer large enough and must be expanded? What happens when those so confined demand that they be allowed to live anywhere in the country they choose and be full participants in that society? Nobody likes being stigmatized. Nobody likes being told their preferences are somehow morally questionable.

Now we move onto the 7th Foundation of WN—On Defining a WN Foreign Policy. Basically, it centers around Kendall’s assertion that this new WN nation is not going to get bogged down in useless foreign wars. He writes of how Vietnam was a useless war that gained us nothing and we repeated the mistake in Afghanistan and Iraq. He points out that these last two wars cost us about four trillion dollars. He writes:

“For far too long now, we hard-working, tax-paying white American citizens have been taken for suckers by the evil folly of unbridled American war-mongering, that, for so very long now, has controlled American foreign policy.

“But under a WN Merivocracy, there would be no wars of this kind; under a WN leadership, there would no longer be American intervention in Third World Countries, no matter what their internal problems. Foreign nations, from now on, would have to defend themselves from their enemies, or perish…. Instead a WN military would exist only to protect itself and other allied WN nations from foreign attack or invasion.”

I’m going to call bullshit on this. First, after saying this WN nation is not going to get any other country out of messes, Kendall then admits that WN troops could, in fact, be sent to help “other allied WN nations from foreign attack or invasion.” What constitutes an allied WN nation? Some other all-white, race-based country somewhere? There are likely going to be very, very few of them. Instead, these citizens of the WN nation are going to find themselves in the same old conflicts.

The truth is that an allied nation is any nation that has something you need. There is no formula by which a WN nation will only need to rely on other WN nations. If that nation needs bauxite to make chromium, which is absolutely vital to their security and economy, and they have no natural reserves of bauxite, they have to negotiate with another country that does have it and is willing to sell it or trade for it. The more vital the bauxite is, the more important it is that that trade not be disrupted. If another country threatens the supply of bauxite by attacking the country that supplies it, then the WN country has to either find another source of bauxite or they must send troops, weapons and money to the supply country to fight off that enemy. It may even attack that invader itself to put an end to the threat. But suppose an ally to the invader starts to help out because it too wants that bauxite? Then the WN nation has to put troops, money and weapons in that country to put them down or enlist an ally to fight that country. But if another country attacks the ally, then we must protect the ally. So, you see, it’s right back to the same old war-mongering foreign policy. There is no way around it. And we won’t bother to entertain what the WN nation’s response will be if the supply country, quite on its own, decides to cut off that supply of bauxite but you can guess what will happen then.
