Book by multiracialist author documents much of value in history of White America.
by M. P. Shiel
Thanks to a submission from a National Vanguard reader (see that little 'submit' button up there? -- it can have marvellous effects, even if they are sometimes delayed by several weeks... or months in my case), I discovered an inadvertently (?) excellent book by a non-White committed multiracialist, the Asian Indian S. T. Joshi, who despite the positions he's taken must have a closet liking for European culture, particularly the rationalist/High Romantic/racialist culture that was developing in Europe and America before it was killed by the Jewish supremacists in the last century.
I say this because Mr. Joshi has spent much of his life promoting the works of H. P. Lovecraft and Lord Dunsany -- more Eurocentric you cannot get, and, in the former's case, more racialist you canot get -- and is even editing a forthcoming edition of some of the racially-tinged works of one of my relatives, the late fantasy writer Matthew Phipps Shiel.
Our correspondent writes, "Joshi is a expert on H. P. Lovecraft, an Indian (from India), an anti-racist and a militant atheist." So add rational materialist/evolutionist thought (so essential for an understanding of racialism) to the list of things that both racialist Euro-America and Joshi have on their favorites list.
Mr. Joshi has given us an amazingly good book in his collection of writings from the greats of the Old America; this book is not "racially tinged," but is out-and-out racialist on almost every page: Documents of American Prejudice: An Anthology of Writings on Race from Thomas Jefferson to David Duke, by S. T. Joshi, does contain a few weak paens to racial mixing and condemnations of White racial consciousness.
But as the author documents the racial ideas of the founders of America and her leading scientists, statesmen, and literary lights over her first 200 years, it becomes clearer and clearer that Kevin Alfred Strom was right when he said on American Dissident Voices twelve years ago that America was brought into being as a nation by and for White people -- and her founders and her leadership and her culture-bearing strata virtually all recognized that fact.
Reviewer Will Wilson noticed that "The editor feels that by associating these 100+ excerpts with the word 'racist' he can instantly refute them. On the contrary there is much here for reasoned minds to agree with... Even some of the predictions made many years ago, like in Ross' 'The Old World and the New' (1914) about the future of America have proven quite accurate."
Of course, care has been taken by Joshi to include some absurd, jingoistic nonsense, which is easily refuted, under the rubric of racialism -- and he added some pro-"equality" essays for no good reason I can see -- but that really does not vitiate the book's impact at all. This is a very valuable resource. I think National Vanguard Books ought to start carrying it.
You know, looking at Joshi's CV, I suspect that his White genes are showing and that, despite all protests to the contrary, he wishes the European race and all the great things it produced (some of which Joshi passionately loves), to survive and prosper. Hey, I could be wrong.
But read the book anyway.
