Second thoughts on SAID

In 2012 I wrote an article saying that the second book of Kevin MacDonald, Separation and its Discontents (SAID), was my favourite of his trilogy. I am afraid to say that, since then, I have changed my mind.

Definitely, the texts of the Spanish blogger Evropa Soberana changed my vision of the world. For example, in my 2012 review of SAID I quoted MacDonald: ‘Western societies, unlike prototypical Jewish cultures, do not have a primitive concern with racial purity’ (SAID, page 196).

As we can see in an essay by Soberana that I recently translated about Nordicism, racial pride dates from the Greeks. In The Fair Race’s Darkest Hour I translated other Soberana essays where it is noted that the Spartans, and Romans of the Old Republic, were as jealous of their race as the Jews: a story that MacDonald and others who publish in his webzine are unaware. We should also investigate more what William Pierce and Arthur Kemp wrote about the incredible zeal with which the Iberian Visigoths defended the purity of their blood (until the Christians convinced them to mix their blood with Mediterraneans in the 7th century).

Another pillar of MacDonald’s study that has now collapsed in my mind is his thesis expressed in a few words: ‘I propose that the Christian church in late antiquity was in its very essence the embodiment of a powerful anti-Semitic movement…’ (page 112). Here too the reading of Soberana’s essay on how the Judeo-Christians subverted Rome, especially in the 4th and 5th centuries—which I adapted as the masthead of this site—provides a perspective virtually opposite to what MacDonald says in this paragraph.

Although he is not a Christian, it is obvious that Professor MacDonald writes for a conservative audience with many Christians. The way Soberana and I see the world, on the other hand, is more in line with German National Socialism.

The link in my post on Wednesday about a discussion with Matt Heimbach is crucial to see why I believe that trying to mix American Christianity with the fourteen words produces a grotesque chimera. So grotesque, in fact, that I must link once again that discussion of the Orthodox Christian Heimbach with a commenter who believes in the religious movement known as Christian Identity (here).

For those who ignore what the acronyms of the subtitle of this site mean (‘WN is a farce, NS is the real thing’), let me say that I refer to Christian White Nationalism and non-Christian National Socialism.
