Preamble on Race Realism
In the early chapters of my life I considered race to be a purely aesthetic factor. It was just the color of some skin, or the shape of a nose. A culture or background might come along with these features, but purely by the mercurial whims of history had that come to be so. That culture wasn't inherent or a part of nature.
For me this was a dualist perspective. Mind was purely separate from body, either as a universal symbolic language, simply encoded chemically in the brain, or as a metaphysical liquid, poured into the body like gelatin into a mold. Regardless of whether the materialist or spiritual perspective was taken, mind was inexorably separated from those superficial features of color and shape that we so easily recognize as race. More over, linking those features to the mind was morally stained, a primitive and disgusting behavior.
That dualistic belief was wrong, both factually and morally. It was a quasi-religion about the nature and moral quality of the world. I had been given that religion with great emotional force, cordoned off from the usual kind of questioning and examination that all other subjects faced. It was the religion of "all men are created equal." Whether I believed that as a legal conceit, a spiritual admonition, or a physical fact, ultimately changed very little.
The first impulse that freed me from this church of equality was the philosophical thought of Jonathan Bowden. He presented to me that the essential quality of nature is inequality and asymmetry. However close the appearance of equality, different forms, matter, and beings will always express themselves unequally in the world. By this difference we know all of existence, rather than undifferentiated potential.
I now view the mind as light shown through the prism of the body. That which can manifest from logic, reason, or the spirit is governed by the chemistry of desire, native presentiment and ability. I do believe there is mind in its pure form, but only some of its colors touch us, as permitted by the nature and biology of the physical world.
That's all philosophy. Let's get practical. Why should you care about any of this? You should care because you love your children. You want them to know what is true and what will bring them happiness and meaning. Peoples of different genetic backgrounds, that we loosely understand as races, have widely differing life histories. These histories influence the individual course a person's life takes, and, more profoundly, the form of society that people of these races create. People who, by nature, want to create different societies will never be happy together. Conflict of interest and hurt feelings are the only sure results of multi-ethnic and multi-cultural societies.
Those are negative images of racial conflict, but there is also a positive image that has been lost, obscured and maligned. You have a people, much like you have a family. Not every person’s relationship with their family is good, but there is no other group in the world you have a better chance of sharing common character and cause with. Your people is a greater family. There is no other group with whom you have a better chance of finding home and purpose. Without knowing the spirit of your people you are a man incomplete. Incapable of truly knowing yourself or being rooted in this life.
With that in mind, I am going to explore what I consider to be the key native differences between major genetic groups of people. I am not going to do that out of idle curiosity, nor am I possessed by an ignorant or provincial animosity toward people different from myself. I am doing this because I think this knowledge is of vital practical and moral importance to everyone, especially my own group, European people.
The key differences I will focus on are intelligence, discipline or delayed gratification, interpersonal violence and life history timing. To me these represent the essential ingredients for a successful nation.
