The WASP Question

Arktos, 2011
422 pp

paperback: $30

Andrew Fraser’s The WASP Question deals with the question of Anglo-Saxon life in the United States, Australia and everywhere across the world where they have settled. Having for the most part lost a sense of their own ethnic identity in a time of increasing globalism and international multiculturalism which values nearly every culture except their own, the ‘WASPs’ – White Anglo-Saxon Protestants – are alternatively mocked, attacked and ignored in their own lands.

Professor Fraser addresses the many questions involved in the matter with impeccable erudition and proposes possible solutions for the future. Constitutional and legal history, evolutionary biology and Christian theology all come into play as Fraser tackles one of the most burning questions of our time. As an analysis of the problems, and possible way forward, faced by a European ethnic group, the book will be of interest to anyone concerned about the fate of not just the Anglo-Saxons, but any specific cultural and racial identity in the postmodern, multicultural age.

The WASP Question is a groundbreaking contribution to the project of synthesizing Anglo-American constitutional and legal history with the evolutionary biology of ethnicity and a Christian ethno-theology. Fraser adds a new aspect to the modern ethno-pathology that now infects the Anglo-Saxon bioculture: “Civic patriotism cannot be sustained in multi-racial societies.” His radical critique of American constitutionalism exposes a major threat to the ethnic interests of America’s founding race—the White Anglo-Saxon Protestants who have since degenerated into an “invisible race” of deracinated WASPs.

Anglo-Saxon constitutionalism and its modern deconstruction are intertwined with excursions into history and genetics. Fraser explores the religious dimension of ethnic group strategies in a plausible historical and evolutionary frame. Evolutionary biology lends this book a magisterial view looking back to ethnogenesis in the England of Alfred the Great, and looking forward to a world made human by postmodern tribal solidarity, including that of the scattered Anglo-Saxon nation. The result is a fresh analysis of the ethno-religious foundations of the English people.

The WASP Question is valuable for focusing attention on the plight of Anglo-Saxon societies assailed by runaway materialism and imposed diversity. The book articulates a role for national religions in defending populations of ethnic kin. For Anglo-Saxons, that role is fulfilled by the orthodox Christian doctrine of nations. Fraser’s appeal to a patriot king who can restore Anglo-Saxons’ biocultural identity and ethno-religious autonomy is a provocative alternative.

Agree or disagree with Andrew Fraser’s prescriptions, his combination of originality and scholarship deserves to find a place in literature dealing with ethnicity, nationalism, constitutional history, biosocial science, and advocacy for Anglo-Saxon ethnic identity and biocultural continuity. Be prepared to read, reread and ponder.

    I am glad that a scholar has finally tackled the long neglected subject of the enigmatic and self-destructive state of Anglo ethno- miasma. This is much needed, and long overdo. I am currently reading this tome, and yet to finish it, but so far, it contains a lot of valuable insights about the conflicted Anglo mindset. Fraser seems to grasp the origin and essentials of the problem, but the ‘solutions’ that he appears to be leading to, strikes me as more of the same. Anglo/Whites need a real revolution in thought, if they are ever to survive.

    Posted November 8, 2011 at 11:28 am | Permalink and the newspapers all provide free daily horoscopes and psychic shops are proliferating throughout our towns and cities. Fraser, to his credit has realized that battles are both secular and spiritual and has set out to examine how the Anglo-Saxon lost his spiritual bearings and has become today’s flabby excuse for what was once the warrior nation.
    Being somewhat new to all this New Right stuff I was particularly intrigued by Fraser’s inclusion of a chapter using Guillame Faye’s term Archeofuterism but thankfully CC earlier ran an article by Julious Evola clearing up any misunderstanding of what neo-Paganism meant so it is all beginning to make sense to me. But to be fair to myself you can read on the back cover of The Wasp Question that it is a book that not only has to be read but reread and pondered over.
    The big question now is no longer how Matt Parrott and others can succeed at the political party game but how the Matt Parrotts and somebody else (Matthew and Mark – sorry) can succeed at both the political party game and the church game – secular and spiritual?
