The Acid Test of Humanity

The Acid Test of Humanity is the welfare of the sick, the weak, the young, the less fortunate. A recent book on the 'privatized' U.S. health care system, The Death of Compassion, details how HMO's, doctor-owned hospitals, and an overspent federal budget (thanks to hordes of non-White parasites) have all contributed to a system which severely rations access to health care by amount of insurance or other funding by the patient. A society of productive citizens who share similar traits and a close evolutionary range to one another is a good social support network. Until recent non-White and non-Nordic immigration to Scandinavia, Swedes, Danes, and Norwegians enjoyed an excellent health care system. The conservative revolution in politics in the West has had the result that these programs are now considered fiscally unsound. Though the three nations are products of Christian universalism, their mostly Nordic and Alpine peoples were unintentionally racially separate for hundreds of years. They benefitted from lack of Third World mobility, their own geographic isolation and inhospitable climates. Socialism, as long as it is within a folk, or racial community, does work, and will not result in wide scale parasitism.

Another measure of people's evolution is how they treat their children and women. Fatherlessness is, of course, such a tradition in African and Carribean societies that settling of estates in Jamaica is complicated by the fact that 85% of the population are illegitimate. Women, in most African states, cannot vote, institute divorce proceedings, nor own property. Rape is not considered a serious crime. The more evolved a society, the more likely that the rights of children and women shall be taken seriously. In Sweden, striking children is frowned upon and can become a criminal offense. A child protection league, the bandesratt (children's rights) watches over childrens' treatment, even in the family. Now, it will never be the position of a GS article that kids should roam the streets freely, imbibing of the deliberately created 'youth culture', posturing and "hanging out". We advocate well-structured and disciplined families, but know that this does not follow from spanking, slapping, or strapping.

Contrast this with the least considered child abuse, aimed at the youngest, genital mutilation of the male infant, which takes place at most births in the developed world. It is a ritual Hebrew practice which the Christian West adopted. In less evolved societies, female genital mutilation is also a very frequent practice, particularly in the Islamic world. Thus it is with interest that we excerpt the following from the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers (P. O. Box 2512 San Anselmo, CA 94979):

ENGLAND A private consultant who agreed to perform an illegal female circumcision for �400 cash was found guilty. . .of serious professional misconduct and barred from practice. Professor Sir Herbert Duthie, chairman of the General Medical Council's professional conduct committee, told Dr. Farooque Hayder Saddique, "The committee is appalled by your willingness to perform an abhorrent, illegal and mutilating operation with no possible medical benefit for the patient.

ISRAEL Commenting on post-mortem circumcisions performed without the permission of the family, Israel's Ashkenazi chief rabbi Yisrael Lau said, "The chief rabbinate sees circumcision as a privilege and not something that should be forced on anyone." Former Shepardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliahu says circumcising a Jewish corpse would "allow the person to enter the Garden of Eden," but added that family consent should be obtained, and it should not be done if the man had refused circumcision while alive.

Israel's Ministry of Religions dismissed kidnaping charges in October against a rabbi who mistakenly circumcised a baby boy without the mother's consent. The panel determined the rabbi circumcised the baby in "good faith" even though the baby was not Jewish.

PORTLAND, OREGON A deportation hearing was held for Lydia Oluloro, 32, who is fighting to have her immigration regularized in order to protect her 4 and 6 year old daughters. If forced to return to Nigeria, the girls, who are American citizens, will be subjected to genital mutilation, as was their mother. The decision, of Oluloro's case, which has received national attention of ABC's Nightline, will be announced .. .

The above facts belie a common brainwashing phrase used by the controlled, corporate media, "blacks and women". Whenever discussing opportunities, earnings, or income, the propagandists use the phrase (or similar) to imply that White women share identical interests with non-Whites. A critical look at gender discrimination and the ritual genital assault on young girls by the Islamic priesthood should dispel this suggestion. All women have more rights, status, legal and customary protection in nations with a White majority than anywhere else on earth.

Pro White Passive Resistance - Code of Conduct

The below essay is by the Kentucky Gentleman. It is a day-to-day guide to acting, legally, in whatever small ways we might, to resist the System's genocidal program against Whites.

1. Loyalty: Give highest loyalty to your own race, above politics, religion, law, or profit. Any creed not putting race and family first is false. Like queers, mixers are not content to do their own thing and leave everyone else alone. They try to force everyone else to accept and adopt their perversion. We Whites have a right to survive, every bit as much as the Spotted Owl.

2. Education: Educate yourself in racial reality, learning to recognize anti-White bias and lies in the media. Recognize racial hybrids like actor Keanu Reeves, whom the media try to pass off as White. Learn the deep, spiritual, scientific, and moral reasons that races should not mix.

3. Family : Teach your family to be Pro White. It cannot survive without the race of which it is part. When non-Whites become a majority, they will kill your descendants, as surely as they did in Zimbabwe, Kenya, or Haiti. Hybrids and race-mixers have always been the first killed, as after the successful communist revolution in Viet Nam. Teach your family your values and do not let them voluntarily associate with non-Whites. Such actions are treason. Shame them into honorable behavior. Your opinion is more important to them than they will admit.

4. Segregation : Segregate yourself and your family from non-Whites as much as possible. Avoid living in a mixed neighborhood, even if you must commute further to work. Educate your kids at home as much and long as you can: counter the lies they learn there with facts at home.

5. Socialization : Do not socialize with non-Whites or race-mixers. This includes any voluntary association, from sharing rides, eating, drinking with, or going places with them. In job situations, it may be necessary to eat in their presence, but do not sit with them. Do not confront or argue about your actions; rather, use a polite excuse if questioned. Seek White friends.

6. Business : Avoid patronizing non-Whites, particularly service providers, small merchants, or tradesmen. Sale of a home in a White neighborhood to a non-White is an act of treason.

7. Shopping : Buy products made in mostly White, non-sweatshop states, like in the N. Midwest and the Northwest. Buy products made in Europe. Avoid products made in China, Taiwan, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Pakistan, etc. wherever possible.

8. Entertainment : Do not subsidize non-White, race-mixing, or homosexual entertainers, sports figures, or entertainment products, such as tapes or videos. Such products, whether an Elton John concert, or the pairing of blonde cheerleaders with black players at a basketball game always involve messages which further the System's exploitation of our Folk.

9. Speech : Express separatist opinions to potentially receptive friends. Do not argue with committed enemies of our people. You will not sway them and will give them information to use against you. Speak out against acts of violence, discrimination, and bias against our people. No one can fault you for Racism for protesting the racial discrimination against us by non-Whites.

10. The System : Realize not just intellectually, but viscerally, that the System is your enemy. It includes government, police, courts, law, Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals, and any religion or ideology which is not for racial separation. Internationalists and race mixers allow the upper class to exploit the middle class economically. A constitutional government would not permit this. Expect injustice, abuse, and oppression.

11. Support : Seek out and support local Pro White activists who have good judgement. Listen to them. Help and inform them when you can. If there is a crack dealer on your block, they might have helpful suggestions as to where to turn when police are paid to overlook it. Give to a pro-White charity or group instead of a System church or charity. Spread information.

12. Silence : Tell police, federal agents, or other hired killers nothing. Police lie, cheat, entrap, and plant evidence in order to obtain convictions against innocent persons. They hold you in contempt and will not protect you from criminals or non-White crime. Say nothing that might harm a White activist. Simply say that you do not remember, do not know, or had no contact with the matter, then don't discuss the topic with anyone else- bugging and wiretapping are pervasive. If you serve on a jury, do as jurors of another race did recently- find the White man not guilty. You need not justify your vote. Strike back with a wall of silence.

End-Time Scenarios II

Shipton, McKenna, Figgie

Our steadfast readers of this (increasingly) irregular journal will recall that in our last edition, marked Summer 106 ('95), we carried a series of articles on various views of what many feel will be a next two decades full of unprecedented changes. Some looked at these impending changes as Erde's removing Her planetary dermatitis. Others expected an end of history or at least, the collapse of Christian-led "Western" civilization. With the exception of some modern prophets, few claimed to know the precise details. We even speculated that an "end" might be more a matter of an entropic rather than an apocalyptic series of events, in which the engine of a society ruled by a cryptocracy through deception and for greed and control of the masses, simply winds down. Worse, we speculated, the apocalyptic teachings of Judeo-Christianity, Islam, and other death-cults, may become a self-fulfilling prophecy as people conditioned to anticipate their doom may, in an externalization and concretion of the collective unconscious, precipitate precisely that condition.

None of the modern prophets has really stood the test of history. Even the 'sleeping prophet', Edgar Cayce, was quite incorrect on many of his predictions, causing his followers to selectively recall only the 'hits', not the far more numerous misses. Our first seer, a Pagan prophetess of Elizabethan England, was no dilettante. In her society the apparatus of the death cult murdered those who saw too much or had powers. These real events, the rulers feared might obscure the fraudulent, reported miracles and visions of its scriptures. Mother Shipton, 1488-1561, of Norfolk, England, was such a person. She did not turn a shekel on her powers, but rather paid for her capacities with her life, having met her end burned at the stake. During her months of torture and imprisonment by the death cult, she did write down her vision of the future and hid it in her cell where it was uncovered years after her murder. Unlike Cayce, we can verify a great many details of her vision of a world that would come to be, one which she would see only in spirit flight and which seemed wondrous to her 16th Century perspective. Throughout the long, poetic prophecy, it is not difficult to understand the events described, whether the sectarian warfare in Northern Ireland or the unnatural masculinization of our women, a disastrously low White birthrate, the AIDS epidemic or the coming dominance of homogeneous (and therefore functional) monoracial Pacific Rim nations over the melting potties of the West, her prophecies require little interpretation or doubt as to what the visions forecast. They even appear to predict the rise of the (universalistic) "Mountbatten" (originally 'Buttenberger') royalty in England. One characteristic of her planetary "eschatology", shared with the Eddaic view of Voluspa and the Vedic traditions, is that the world does not end, but merely renews itself, through catastrophe. Could Comet Hale-Bopp have been the sixth "dragon."

Mother Shipton's Visions

A carriage without horse will go

Disaster fill the world with woe.

In London, Primrose Hill shall be

In centre hold a Bishop's See

Around the world men's thoughts will fly

Quick as the twinkling of an eye.

And water shall great wonders do

How strange. And yet it shall come true.

Through towering hills proud men shall ride

No horse or ass move by his side.

Beneath the water, men shall walk

Shall ride, shall sleep, shall even talk

And in the air men shall be seen

In white and black and even green.

A great man then, shall come and go

For prophecy declares it so.

In water, iron then shall float

As easily as a wooden boat.

Gold shall be seen in stream and stone

in land where Western sun has shone.

And England shall admit a Jew

You think this strange, but it is true.

The Jew that once was held in scorn

Shall of a Christian then be born.

A house of glass shall come to pass

In England, But Alas, alas

A war with follow with the work

Where dwells the Pagan and the Turk.

These states will lock in fiercest strife

And seek to take each other's life.

When north shall thus divide the south

And Eagle build in Lion's mouth

Then tax and blood and cruel war

Shall come to every humble door.

Three times shall lovely sunny France

Be led to play a bloody dance

Before the people shall be free

Three tyrant rulers shall she see.

Three rulers in succession be

Each springs from different dynasty.

Then when the fiercest strife is done

England and France shall be as one.

The British olive shall next then twine

In marriage with a German vine.

Men walk beneath and over streams

Fulfilled shall be their wondrous dreams.

For in those wondrous far-off days

The women shall adopt a craze

To dress like men, and trousers wear

And to cut off their locks of hair.

They'll ride astride with brazen brow

As witches do on broomsticks now.

And roaring monsters with man atop

Does seem to eat the verdant crop

And men shall fly as birds do now

And give away the horse and plough.

There'll be a sign for all to see

Be sure that it will certain be.

Then love shall die and marriage cease

And nations wane as babes decrease.

And wives shall fondle cats and dogs

And men live much the sames as hogs.

In nineteen hundred and twenty six

Build houses light of straw and sticks

For then shall mighty wars be planned

And fire and sword shall sweep the land.

When pictures seem alive with movements free

When boats like fishes swim beneath the sea

When men like birds shall scour the sky

Then half the world, deep drenched in blood shall die.

For those who live the century through

In fear and trembling this shall do.

Flee to the mountains and the dens

To bog and forest and wild fens.

For storms will rage and oceans roar

When Heimdall stands on sea and shore

And as He blows His wondrous horn

Old worlds die and new be born.

A fiery Dragon will cross the sky

Six times before this Earth shall die

Mankind will tremble and frightened be

For the sixth heralds in this prophecy.

For seven days and seven nights

Man will watch this awesome sight.

The tides will rise beyond their ken

To bite away the shores, and then

The mountains will begin to roar

And earthquakes split the plain to shore.

And flooding waters, rushing in

Will flood the lands with such a din

That mankind cowers in muddy fen

And snarls about this fellow men.

He bares his teeth and fights and kills

And secrets food in secret hills

And ugly in his fear, he lies

To kill marauders, thieves, and spies.

Man flees in terror from the floods

And kills and rapes and lies in blood

And spilling blood by mankind's hands

Will stain and bitter many lands.

And when the Dragon's tail is gone

Man forgets, and smiles, and carries on

To apply himself-- too late, too late

For mankind has earned deserved fate.

His masked smile, his false grandeur

Will serve the Gods Their anger stir.

And They will send the Dragon back

To light the sky-- his tail will crack

Upon the Earth and rend the Earth

And man shall flee, King Lord, and serf.

But slowly they are routed out

To seek diminishing water spout

And men will die of thirst before

The oceans rise to mount the shore

And lands will crack and rend anew

You think it strange. It will come true.

And in some far-off distant land

Some men-- oh such a tiny band

Will have to leave their solid mount

And span the Earth, those few to count

Who survives this purge and then

Begin the human race again.

But not on land already there

But on ocean beds, stark, dry, and bare.

Not every soul on Earth will die

As the Dragon's tail goes sweeping by.

Not every land on Earth will sink

But these will wallow in stench and stink

Of rotting bodies of beast and man

Of vegetation crisped on land.

But the land that rises from the sea

Will be dry and clean and soft and free

Of mankind's dirt and therefore be

The source of man's new dynasty.

And those that live will ever fear

The Dragon's tail for many year

But time erases memory

You think it strange. But it will be.

And before the race is built anew

As silver serpent comes to view

And spew out men of like unknown

To mingle with the Earth now grown

Cold from its heat, and these men can

Enlighten the minds of future man

To intermingle and show them how

To live and love and thus endow

The children with the second sight.

A natural thing so that they might

Grow graceful, humble, and when they do

The Golden Age will start anew.

The Dragon's tail is but a sign

For mankind's fall and man's decline.

And before this prophecy is done

I shall be burned at the stake, at one

My body singed and my soul set free

You think I utter blasphemy

You're wrong. These things have come to me

This prophecy will come to be.

Additional verses were found in a separate jar and appear to have been contemporary to those above:

The signs will be there for all to read; When man shall do most heinous deed

Man will ruin kinder lives; By taking them as to their wives.

And murder foul and brutal deed; When man will only think of greed.

And man shall walk as if asleep: He does not look-- he may not peep

And iron men the tail shall do; And iron cart and carriage too.

The kings shall false promise make; And talk just for talking's sake

And nations plan horrific war; The like as never seen before

And taxes will rise and lively down; And nations wear perpetual frown

Yet greater sign there will be to see: As man nears later century:

Three sleeping mountains gather breath; And spew out mud, and ice, and death.

And earthquakes swallow town and town. In lands as yet to me unknown.

And Christian one fights Christian two; and nations sigh, yet nothing do.

And yellow men great power gain; from mighty bear with whom they've lain.

These mighty tyrants will fail to do; They fail to split the world in two.

But from their acts a danger bred; An ague leaving many dead

And physics find no remedy; for this is worse than leprosy

Oh many signs for all to see: The truth of this true prophecy.

Terrence McKenna

Nested Cycles : Another Theory on the End of Time

The author is a psychedelic experimenter and writer. Despite our abhorrence to recreational drug use, shared by most readers with whom we have had contact, McKenna's mathematical model of an historical cycle predisposed to end soon is worth the read. His article, "Approaching Timewave Zero", appeared in the Summer edition of Magical Blend 1994. Anyone who would like to further research McKenna's theories can write for software, video, or print materials to Timewave; P. O. Box 2111; Mill Valley, CA 94942. McKenna's teleology is quite distinct from ours, looking for the end of 'racism and sexism,' so take care what address you use for any research.

This caveat given, then, what would a mathematical model of cyclic, kalpa-like history say to us at the end of the Judeo-Christian interregnum? McKenna developed a 'novelty map' based on novelty and connectedness on one polarity as opposed to habitual forms of human activity. He worked through the mystical Chinese divination system, the I Ching and with co-researcher Peter Mayer used the 64 hexagram King Wen sequence as a mathematical model of a wave form, as metaphor for human events.

On his novelty graph, the vertical axis is novelty and the horizontal axis represents historical time. In this measure, the Old Kingdom, which peaked at 2700 B.C.E. in Egypt, the pyramid building era, was considered a time of novelty. The only true zero value on the vertical axis will develop on 12/21/2012 at 11:18 Greenwich Mean Time. That final point, at which some sort of numinous change in mass consciousness is predicted to occur, coincides with the final date revealed in the Mayan calendar.

To achieve this view, McKenna and colleagues begin with the human genome project, which is set to map the 700 million paired helical nucleotide units, or codons. He arbitrarily decides on a Cosmic age, or age of the multiverse as being a magnitude of 100 greater, or 70 billion years old. As they then treat the King Wen constant of 64 as a divisor and nest each successive dividend, the operation yields a figure of 4,300 years ago as the arbitrary start of history, as an evolution toward a temporal/ cosmic attractor. If there is a wave pattern encoded in the I Ching and it involves a map of time, this operation intersects the Mayan chronology.

Not only do the cycles "nest" mathematically, but they appear to involve an historical determinism, a recapitulation of all past content into the current, ever smaller, cycle. Thus, he writes,

At the end of that 4,306th year comes a 67 year cycle that has all the themes of all these larger cycles compressed and folded into it. That sixty-seven year cycle began on August 5, 1945 with the faint echo of the big bang, as the atomic flower blossomed over Hiroshima. It runs from that day -- August 5, 1945 -- to December 21, 2012. But 384 days before we reach that date, we cross into a cycle only 384 days long that has all these larger cycles compressed into it. And six days before we reach the zero point, we will cross through into a domain of only six-days duration that has all these huge cycles compressed in it. From six days to an hour and thirty five minutes to a minute and six seconds to 1.3 seconds to .035 seconds down to the domain of Plank's constant-- 6.55x10 to the minus 23rd second, or what we refer to technically as a "jiffy." The point I want to make is that if you have a universe like that of 72 billion years in duration, it will undergo half of its evolution in the last thirty seconds of its existence.

What brave new world awaits is not fully within the scope of the article, although the author describes the break up of the Soviet empire as one of many events in a pattern of falling barriers and deconstruction of limits. He predicts more of a mass spiritual shift wherein human consciousness will undergo an intrinsic and basic alteration. Really, his vision does not contradict that of Mother Shipton: perhaps the few survivors will be permanently altered for the better.

Figgie - the Inevitability of Collapse in Debt-Based Economies

There are some good books by economists on the inevitable economic collapse of this society. In the 12/94 edition of GS, we interviewed Dr. Ravi Batra, noted expert on international trade issues and outspoken critic of "free trade." Dr. Batra, you might recall, predicted that the Soviet empire would collapse from within due to the economic non-viability of the communist system. He predicted, in the same prescient work, that capitalism would collapse shortly (in historic time) thereafter.

Any number of good sources exist, so it was difficult to pick a good economic view of the end of western civilization from all the contenders. One impression the reader gets immediately is that the legislators, who vote ever more spending and sustain ever higher deficits, must not read the works of professional economists. Harry Figgie, Jr. and Dr. Gerald Swanson collaborated on Bankruptcy 1995, the theme of which was that the federal government in Washington would become terminally bankrupt and irretrievably in deficit by that year.

As always, there are contingencies for which no social scientist could prepare and an irrational streak in human mass behavior which sometimes defies prediction. Thus it is that the government, that is, this nation, should by all rights be bankrupt right now. Who could have predicted that President Clinton would 'monetize' the debt? In case you don't know what this fiscal sleight-of-hand involved, the debt burden was satisfied, temporarily, by shifting assets from the pension plans which were to have covered federal employees, into worthless loans to the central treasury, kind of an internal bond issue, as if this transfer of one promissary note (the promise to pay pensioners in as-yet-unaccrued dollars) could be used to satisfy another overdrawn account.

Mr. Figgie was a principal in the Grace Commission, headed by Peter Grace, which President Reagan appointed to eliminate waste in federal government operations. He is a noted industrialist, fiscal consultant, and has served as advisor to different administrations. Feeling that his the commission's work and agenda were being ignored, the book, an appeal to the public, was initiated in 1982, then updated a decade later. While all economists work from official data by Congressional Budget Office, the General Accounting Office, and the Federal Reserve's researchers, Figgie's access to incontrovertible official sources and the thoroughness of this study make it a good read, even for those of us who are not employed in finance or economics.

Many racialists falsely feel closer Republicans than Democrats, to "conservatives" than "liberals," forgetting that the only opposition to GATT and NAFTA, was led by Democratic legislators, such as Senator Earnest Holling (S.C.). Some of the toughest anti-White laws and loosest policies on non-White immigration were products of Republican. Reagan's executive order gave legal amnesty to illegal aliens already residing here. Figgie reminds us that the greatest deficit artist of all time was Mr. Conservative himself, whose 1.34 trillion over his two terms was more than quadruple the debt incurred by his 'liberal' predecessor, President Carter.

Figgie shows, in very readable language, how a society collapses when excessive govern-mental borrowing crowds out private credit and how inflationary, devalued currency buys less and less, causing businesses to close and jobs to be lost. He relates the fiscal mess in the U.S. to economic collapses in Poland, Argentina, and Hungary. In the chapter, "Death by Debt", he reviews several scenarios, including death by hyperinflation:

The financial markets, here and abroad, notice the Fed buying some of the government's debt. "hey", they say, "this is going to be inflationary. We'd better prepare ourselves." So banks and other lenders raise their interest rates to protect themselves against the anticipated loss of value in the dollar. After all, what's the use of charging 4 percent interest on a loan if the inflation rate will climb to 10 percent-- if, in other words, the dollars you get back are worth 10% less than the dollars you loaned. If that were the case, the lender would actually lose 6% on the transaction. So, if lenders think inflation will rise to 10%, and they want to earn 4 percent real interest, they'll raise their nominal interest rate to 14%. Higher rates mean that it costs the government even more to service its old-- and new and growing -- debt. thereby increasing the deficit.

Meanwhile, of course, the value of the old securities that people hold-- those that were issued at low rates of interest back in the good old days of the late 1980's and early 1990's-- have plunged. Nobody wants them, since they earn at a rate lower than inflation. People sell them for whatever they can get, but they don't save the cash from the sale. With inflation, a dollar saved today could be worth 99 cents tomorrow, so when people get cash, they want to buy something with it, something like an oriental carpet or vacuum cleaner, whose prices will be higher tomorrow than today. Naturally, this strong demand for goods only drives their prices higher still. That's one of the insidious characteristics of inflation. It promotes itself.

By late 1994, the annual inflation rate has climbed to 22 percent and is rising by a point or more a month. Interest rates are running 30% and more. When the government tries to raise cash to cover its deficit, which by now is almost as large every month as it used to be every year, investors refuse to buy the fixed-rate notes because of their uncertainty about future inflation. When it can't sell any of its debt, the Treasury has to sell it all to the Fed, which only exacerbates inflation.

Corporate profits vanish, submerged by inflation, and no individuals or companies are able to borrow. The home construction industry dies. Manufacturing productivity goes into decline as plants deteriorate. Many companies can't generate enough new working capital to sustain themselves, so they gradually slide into oblivion.

Overseas, the dollar is virtually worthless, but foreign corporations can pick up American industrial plants and operating facilities easily if they pay in Japanese yen or the new Euro-currency (the �cu- ed.). So foreigners buy U.S. companies in order to acquire technology or other assets and, often, shut the operation down. American companies also face shutdown simply because banks have cut off their credit, and foreign companies move in like buzzards on carrion. C'est la vie.

As time goes on, banks cancel consumer credit cards, because they can't collect the debt fast enough to keep pace with the declining value of the dollar. Accounting systems break down, and people stop paying taxes because no one can keep track of the numbers anymore. Bookkeeping computers are overloaded with zeros. The deficit, as near as anyone can figure it, seems entirely out of control,. Hyperinflation is pushing the economy, along with public morale, into a hopeless and major depression. Black markets are springing up all over the country. The middle class begins to disappear. In California a nonpartisan committee call RAG (Restore America's Greatness) is organized to draft Ronald Reagan in the 1996 presidential campaign. "Here I go again, " responds the Gipper. (pp84-85)

Figgie is even-handed about explaining the sources of deficit. He outlines (52-53) federal welfare to business and those agencies which specialize in these handouts. He discusses how REA provides subsidies to wealthy farmers and agribusiness and how (47) lumber companies are subsidized by the U.S. Forest Service. Contrary to the usual conservative line on the economy, he (35-37) shows that tax cuts in the present system can only serve to drive up deficits, these high-income tax privileges of Reagan years being the very mechanism which, coupled with continued high spending levels, resulted in the record deficits.

Throughout, he and most other alarmist economists make the same assumptions, those which underlie capitalism, that businesses need banks, stock markets, and the presence of capital from absentee-owners in order to operate. He assumes that a healthy stock market is synonymous with a healthy economy, when record profits in the NYSE have come about largely through investments in far more profitable off-shore operations. Never does he make the connection that democracy, itself, is inherently at fault, that in a system where representatives apportion moneys from a central treasury and must raise large sums in order to run for office, there will be representation only for the special interests who contribute and overspending in order to buy or repay votes. Never does he conclude that the profit motive itself, "free" enterprise, freed of the restraints of a governing council which could protect the people from betrayal of national interests by a wealthy elite, is the fundamental problem.

Unlike the last Great Depression, when the West consisted of homogeneous, White dominated nations, the next one will witness massive uprisings by well-armed non-Whites, whose racism was not addressed by the propaganda machinery, as was ours. Colific forces would find it difficult to restore order and the U.S. would slip into chaotic conflict. At least in this condition, the Third World's surplus people would realize that emigration is not a panacea.
