Like the alchemists of old, I seek to transform one element to another. Unlike traditional alchemists, however, it is not my intention to turn lead into gold. Instead, my goal is to turn anger into courage. I know that some of you readers are also alchemists of this sort.
Day after day, we sit in front of our computers and read about atrocities and outrages. Our anger wells up within us. It builds and builds and then… we go watch a movie or order some pizza. It is bad for the heart to allow our anger to simmer inside of us, so we extinguish the flame with food or entertainment. This is anger wasted; the people who write about outrages and atrocities are trying to escalate your anger to the point where it turns to courage – and courage is the immediate precursor to action.
The founding fathers of the United States had courage. Their very lives were at stake when they publicly endorsed separation from England. I found this account of their sufferings:
The British captured five signers during the war. Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, and Arthur Middleton were captured at the Battle of Charleston in 1780. George Walton was wounded and captured at the Battle of Savannah. Richard Stockton of New Jersey never recovered from his incarceration at the hands of British Loyalists. He died in 1781.
Thomas McKean of Delaware wrote John Adams that he was “hunted like a fox by the enemy – compelled to remove my family five times in a few months.” Abraham Clark of New Jersey had two of his sons captured by the British during the war.
Eleven signers had their homes and property destroyed. Francis Lewis’s New York home was razed and his wife taken prisoner. John Hart’s farm and mills were destroyed when the British invaded New Jersey, and he died while fleeing capture. Carter Braxton and Nelson, both of Virginia, lent large sums of their personal fortunes to support the war effort but were never repaid.
The founding fathers knew that they might die for their cause. They knew their families would suffer and that they might lose everything they worked for their entire lives. Compared to their risks, ours are minimal. In extreme circumstances, you might lose your job. Your Aunt Bessy might no longer speak to you. Strangers might look at you as if you’re crazy. Neighbors might shun you. Can we really compare these risks to those taken by the founding fathers?
The founding fathers put their lives on the line. Some of them actually took up arms against their own government. Theirs was an act of treason and rebellion. In contrast, what kind of action am I asking of you? Here are some real-life examples:
1) When a co-worker says she wants to work on her tan, tell her that white skin is beautiful as it is and that she should be happy with what she has.
2) When you see a white couple with cute white children, smile and say, “what a beautiful family!” You needn’t even mention anything about race.
3) When you see a poster celebrating “black history month”, turn to the stranger next to you and say, “it’s wonderful that people take pride in their own heritage. I’m white and I take pride in mine!”
4) After you’ve read about the latest atrocity, committed by non-whites against whites and suppressed by the MSM, make chitchat with your coworkers by saying, “so… what do you think about the Knoxville Horror verdicts?” When you get the vacant look that tells you they don’t know what you are talking about, fill them in. Point out, as a matter of course, the blatant anti-white bias of the media.
5) If you can, donate to a worthy white cause and/or attend pro-white conferences.
In short, your “actions” need only be minor ones whose risks are minimal. New Years is not far away. If you are the type of person who makes, and keeps, New Years resolutions, how about this one:
Starting January 1st, I resolve to make at least one pro-white statement per day to somebody who is not a family member or close friend.
If you do this, after a while it will become second nature. This is how societal attitudes are changed; it all begins with you.
