John Wyndham The Chrysalids
London: Michael Joseph, 1955
I am a child of the Cold War, so good post-apocalyptic fiction, particularly that involving the world after thermonuclear holocaust, resonates with me. An example I recently enjoyed was The Chrysalids by apocalyptic Science Fiction author John Wyndham, also known for The Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes, and The Midwich Cuckoos.
To many of his admirers, the scariest things H. P. Lovecraft wrote were not about Cthulhu, they were about politics. But, as I hope to show, the politics of this master of looming, irrational, metaphysical horror are solidly grounded in reality and reason.
When Julius Evola, one of the leading twentieth-century critics of Judeo-liberal civilization, worked out his racial theory during the 1930s, the principal inspiration for anti-Semitic thought was The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Purportedly stolen from an occult Lodge, the Protocols were a report of twenty-four secret meetings held by the leaders of international Jewry, as they attempted to devise a plan for world domination.
E. O. Wilson’s Sociobiology and Raymond Cattell’s A New Morality from Science: Beyondism were first published in the 1970s, although both writers were developing these ideas for many years before.
Wilson was a better writer, and arguably a better scientist, but Cattell had more creative courage. Cattell believed that a religion could be developed from science, which eventually became “Beyondism.”
In a 1994 speech, Sam Francis reportedly asserted that when whites ceased to exist subjectively, they would cease to exist objectively.
The current genetic destruction caused by demographic collapse and replacement immigration (the de facto policy of replacing white populations with non-white populations) seems to be the consequence of a subjective euthanasia which preceded it.
