America's Decline: The Education Of A Conservative

Availability: Ready to download

Originally a conservative, Professor Revilo Oliver became an intellectual leader of racialists with a trenchant pen and large following. This collection of popular essays - primarily from 1955-1966, when the postwar struggle for America's soul was at its highest - shows that the conservative cause was inherently not only a lost cause but an unworthy one.

    9/10. This book would be approaching the Platonic form of political writing if Oliver didn't have such a 'reprobate mind' when it comes to Christianity. Whoever called Dawkins et al. the new atheists was quite wrong: Oliver was a more caustic 'new atheist' 60 years earlier and with better justification. As far as he sees it, Christianity progressively destroys the West as a vehicle of Judaic subversion and sklavenmoral the more it becomes 'primitive' and 'biblical' (in his view: Zionist, egalitar 9/10.

As far as he sees it, Christianity progressively destroys the West as a vehicle of Judaic subversion and sklavenmoral the more it becomes 'primitive' and 'biblical' (in his view: Zionist, egalitarian, lefty, communist, love-thy-refugee, feminist, pacifist) and abandons the Germanic 'accretions' which made it so culture-generative, muscular, and life affirming in the middle ages. Thus he hates it passionately, because he believes it a solemn threat to our shared love of Nation. If only Oliver could have been given to understand that egalitarianism was the original sin, and remains the archetypal sin!

    Revilo Oliver: Strictly speaking, 'conservatism' has come, paradoxically, to mean reaction, an effort to purge the nation's social and political organization of deleterious accretions and revolutionary changes imposed upon it in recent times, and to restore it to the pristine state in which it existed at some vaguely or precisely defined time in the past. The persons who now call themselves conservatives, if they mean what they propose, are really reactionaries, but eschew the more candid word as Revilo Oliver: Strictly speaking, 'conservatism' has come, paradoxically, to mean reaction, an effort to purge the nation's social and political organization of deleterious accretions and revolutionary changes imposed upon it in recent times, and to restore it to the pristine state in which it existed at some vaguely or precisely defined time in the past. The persons who now call themselves conservatives, if they mean what they propose, are really reactionaries, but eschew the more candid word as prejudicial in propaganda. In Britain, for example, persons who by conviction call themselves conservative (as distinct from politicians who think the word useful to stimulate the glands of their victims) have no wish to conserve and preserve the existing situation, which has resulted from the invasion of their country by hordes of aliens who are, by a biological necessity, their racial enemies. On the contrary, they desire a reaction, a return to the time when the British Isles were the property of the creators of their civilization, the Aryan inhabitants, whether Celtic or Teutonic in origin. And I doubt whether there is any contemporary institution - not even the present degradation of the Monarchy - that a British "conservative" would wish to preserve as it now is and without restoring it to its condition in some more or less specific period of the past. In the United States, a comparable mutation of the word's political meaning has taken place during the decades through which I have lived. I began as an American conservative: I wished to preserve the American society in which I grew up, not because I was unaware of its many and gross deficiencies, but because I saw it threatened by cunningly instigated agitation for changes that would inevitably destroy it and might ultimately result in a reversion to total barbarism. And with the euphoria of youth, I imagined that the existing structure, if preserved from subversion, would, under the impact of foreseeable and historically inevitable events, accommodate itself to the realities of the physical and biophysical world and perhaps give to the nation an era of Roman greatness. Over the years, as the fatal subversion proceeded gradually, relentlessly, and often stealthily, and was thoughtlessly accepted by a feckless or befuddled populace, I became increasingly aware that 'conservatism' was a misnomer, but I did entertain a hope that the current of thought and feeling represented by the word might succeed in restoring at least the essentials of the society whose passing I regretted. And when I at last decided to involve myself in political effort and agitation, I began a painful and very expensive education in political realities. ... If what I tried to do is more than an example of a kind of sophisticated credulity, readers of the present and students of the putative future may find some interest in the "education", in Henry Adam's use of that word, I received as my most pessimistic fears were again and again proved to have been wildly optimistic. And if this book is to have such interest, I shaIl have to explain how I came to involve myself in activities that effectively diverted a large part of my time and energy from a form of scholarship in which, if it be not vanity to confess it, I had flattered myself that I could attain the eminence and influence of an A E Housman or a Wilamowitz-Moellendorff. Before I do so, however, I must interject an explicit warning, for this book may come into the hands of readers for whom it is not intended. I do not propose to entertain with anecdotes or to soothe by retelling any of the fairy tales of which Americans seem never to tire. If these pages are worth reading at all, they deal with a problem that is strictly intellectual and historical, and they are therefore addressed only to the comparatively few individuals who are willing and able to consider such questions' objectively and dispassionately, thinking exclusively in terms of demonstrable facts and reason, and without reference to the personal wishes and emotional fixations that are commonly called 'faith' or 'ideals'. It is not my purpose to unsettle the placidity of the many who shrink from unpleasant realities and spare themselves the discomfort of cogitation by assuring themselves that some Savior, most commonly Jesus or Marx, has promised that the earth, if not the whole universe, will soon be rearranged to suit their tastes. As Kipling said of the fanaticists of his day, they must cling to their faith, whatever the cost to their rationality: "If they desire a thing, they declare it is true. If they desire it not, though that were death itself, they cry aloud, 'It has never been"'. Persons who are not capable of objectivity or are unwilling to disturb their cerebral repose by facing displeasing facts should never read pages that cannot but perturb them emotionally. If they do so, they must blame the curiosity that impelled them to read words that were not intended for them. The reader has been warned.

Many tropes seem to remain the same on the right, even the Judeocentric interpretation of history... it just gets inverted every now and again into a positive or negative fact.
