My question would be: Is the dogma of racial equalism a cause or a symptom of Western man’s degeneration into der letzte Mensch? Nietzsche, I believe would have argued that it’s a symptom. The disbelief, irrespective of the banal facts, in racial or cultural — or for that matter individual — superiority is a mark of degeneration.
But my single greatest influence arose from an accidental introduction, in the late 1980s, to the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. Not only was he objective about Jews, he also predicted the decline of Western Civilization. Nietzsche says,
“The Jews…are beyond any doubt the strongest, toughest, and purest race now living in Europe; they know how to prevail even under the worst conditions (even better than under favorable conditions), by means of virtues that today one would like to mark as vices…” Beyond Good and Evil, Peoples and Fatherlands, Section 251 [Note: Quotations are from Walter Kaufman’s translation,, links go to online versions.]
“The Jews, that priestly people, who in opposing their enemies and conquerors were ultimately satisfied with nothing less than a radical revaluation of their enemies’ values, that is to say, an act of the most spiritual revenge…It was the Jews who, with awe-inspiring consistency, dared to invert the aristocratic value-equation (good=noble=powerful=beautiful=happy=beloved of God) and to hang on to this inversion with their teeth…saying the wretched alone are good; the poor, impotent, lowly alone are the good; the suffering, deprived, sick, ugly alone are pious, alone are blessed by God, blessedness is for them alone—and you, the powerful and noble, are on the contrary the evil, the cruel, …the godless to all eternity; and you shall be in all eternity the unblessed, accursed and damned!” [On the Genealogy of Morals, First Essay, Section 7, 1887]
His insights hit me like a thunderbolt. I also realized how Christianity was affected by this worldview, especially secularized Christianity.
Everything I saw around me confirmed what Nietzsche wrote. In the present day, Western men (the aristocratic class) are the “bad” and the poor, the violent, the “underdog” are the “good”.
This worldview opened the floodgates to the immigration crisis we have today. How can we stop immigration if these people are “good” and we are “bad”? We, as the “bad”, owe it to all of the “good” to invite them into our societies and support them, if necessary. How can we judge them when they are the holy and the noble? They only want what we have. Isn’t that a modest request?
To be clear, it is important to understand that there is no conspiracy among Jews, no Protocols of the Elders of Zion, to advance this view because it benefits them as a group. In fact, it is the opposite—these views are suicidal to all higher people, particularly the Jews.
It is dangerous to believe in the inherent equality of groups because it leads to such questions as: Why are the Jews nearly always at the top rung of every society? Why are they invariably the most educated and the wealthiest? If one believes all groups are equal, then the Jews must be doing something especially deceitful and clever, not to mention evil.
The belief in group equality is the most harmful and dangerous notion today. It is the basis for all policies regarding immigration, education, and civil rights in the US, as well as all Western societies. Despite reams of scientific evidence that supports racial differences throughout the body, from differing diseases, rates of cancer, hypertension, reactions to drugs, all types of physical attributes, etc., for some reason we are to believe that these differences stop at the brain. And the fact that Jews succeed in every society wildly out of proportion to their numbers cannot be discussed.
Western man has been crippled by guilt and a bad conscience that puts our alleged misdeeds totally out of perspective. We have embraced this notion. As Nietzsche said: “One puts to one’s lips what drives one faster into the abyss”. [The Case of Wagner, Section 5]
