White Racial Economics
ADV Broadcast Of April 9, 2011
Hello, and welcome to this week’s broadcast of American Dissident Voices, the Internet radio program of North America’s foremost racialist organization, the National Alliance. I’m your host and Chairman of the Alliance, Erich Gliebe.
Today it seems that the most pressing concern for the average White American is the economy. Inflation is upon us, and while food and fuel prices are skyrocketing, wages are not. Over the past three months consumer prices have been rising at a 5.7 percent annual rate, while the average weekly income has remained stagnant.
And to show you how high prices have climbed in the last decade, take note of this: In the beginning of April 2001, the price of oil was just $26 a barrel, while earlier this week the cost was $108.47 a barrel and rising.
Now although the unemployment rate is still reportedly around 9 percent, a major issue is that we are living in a global economy. So-called developing nations such as China and India have such a rapidly growing economy, that it’s straining the available supplies of all types of raw materials. As people in those nations become wealthier, they develop a bigger appetite for spending. They wish to eat more meat rather than just rice or beans, and they would rather drive cars than ride bicycles. Those higher living standards have left suppliers struggling to grow enough food grain, mine enough iron, and produce enough oil. Because of this, the signs are obvious that this is a long-term problem that will not be going away anytime soon.
And, of course, we currently have in the White House, President Barack Obama, whose most cherished economic accomplishments for this country are the creation of thousands of low-paying McDonald’s jobs and unemployment extensions. However, in the long run, a dismal economy will be to our benefit, as more Whites will be knocked out of their comfort zone and actually give a damn as to what is really going on in this world.
The economy is always a big issue, but this time it’s bigger than usual because the economic crunch is hitting more people at the individual and family level than it has in quite a while. In other words, this time it isn’t just that the trade deficit with China continues to grow, or that corporate earnings are slightly down, or that the dollar is still slipping relative to every other type of world currency. All of that can be happening and most middle-class Americans won’t even notice. As long as the huge middle class is employed and their dollars are buying pretty much what the consumers expect they should buy, then as far as they are concerned, the economy is just fine. Today, people look at the economy and say it ISN’T fine because the economic pinch is hitting people where it hurts: right in the family pocketbook. The dollars aren’t buying what people expect they should buy, and the natives are getting a little bit restless.
There is always a certain amount of unemployment and, to my knowledge, the unemployment rate in the United States hasn’t jumped tremendously in a short period of time, so that isn’t the major cause of the economic concerns of most of the mainstream voters. Of course it’s a big concern to those who ARE unemployed, but again, that segment of the population isn’t large enough – at least yet – to bring the cauldron of economic concern to a rolling boil. It’s the rest of us out there who are more uneasy than we usually are that is causing the media to take notice and causing every politician to put the economy at the top of his or her agenda.
Let’s take a closer look at the economic concerns of the average American, the one who usually doesn’t think twice about the economy because he feels secure in his ability to bring in enough income every month to pay all of his bills, including a large amount of interest on his home mortgage and his car loan. The main issue for these normally economically-oblivious consumers is, in short, oil prices. The fact that gasoline costs him $3.80 a gallon is very troubling. And with the prospect of higher prices for a barrel of oil a real possibility for the future, those concerns only grow.
And it isn’t just the high cost of the gas that he pumps into his own vehicle that troubles the average American consumer. It’s far deeper than that. Even the most naïve citizen can conceptualize some basic math: “Every product that I buy gets to me by modes of transportation that depend on oil, whether that be trucks, trains, or ships bringing goods here from China. The increasing price of oil therefore MUST increase the price of every single item I buy. When I buy something online and the company ships it to me, the cost of bringing it to my door HAS to be accounted for in the price I paid for it. If I go to the store to buy it, not only are the transportation costs of GETTING the item to the store affected by higher oil costs, but I pay more myself in burning the gasoline in my car to go to the store and buying the item.” In other words, ALL prices are related to the cost of oil, in one way or another, and the oil prices are therefore translating into a higher overall cost of living.
The real unfortunate thing about oil driving our economy is that it doesn’t seem to me that the federal government has done much – or IS doing much – to wean us off our dependence on oil. All evidence at this time suggests that the largest oil reserves in the world are located in the Middle East and nearby regions of central Asia. So, not only are we dependent on foreigners to sell us their oil that props up our economy (and, in the process, paying them essentially whatever they ask), but there seems to be little hope for independence in this area. The ethanol plants that are popping up all over the Midwest are one step in the right direction, but the burning of ethanol in internal combustion engines puts carbon dioxide into the atmosphere just like the burning of oil does, which will accelerate the greenhouse effect that already seems to be well underway. The problems, in other words, are many but, for now, the American economy is still far too dependent on oil – no matter where it comes from – and when oil prices go up, it is inevitable that at least mild inflation will follow in its wake.
But the price of oil isn’t the only thing that is making Americans nervous about the economy. The ease of paying for anything from shoes to booze with a credit card has now grown into a national nightmare, with the average American being THOUSANDS of dollars in debt to credit card companies which – unsurprisingly – charge exorbitant rates of interest. This is an absolute plague to all segments of the socio-economic scale, but especially for the lower and middle classes. Those who bring in lower incomes find it too easy to buy whatever they want, only to find that, come the end of the month, they can’t come close to paying off the full amount of the credit card bill.
Thus begins a downward spiral, with much of future payments being used to pay off just the interest from previous debts. If the debtor maxes out his card and is no longer able to purchase anything on it, the short-term thinker sometimes “solves” this problem by simply getting another credit card that WILL allow him to continue his spending habits. As crazy as it sounds to some of you out there, this is exactly how people are able to max out four or five credit cards and ring up credit card debts in the tens of thousands.
But the credit card craziness isn’t limited to the lower socio-economic classes. Many young people from the middle and upper-middle classes are finding themselves having the same sorts of problems managing their money. For most of these kids, money was never an issue; they never lacked enough, and Mom and Dad would always pay for the really expensive things or bail them out in a pinch. Well, now those young people are in their twenties, out on their own, and they can’t control their spending habits. If they see a new TV or iPod or computer or cell phone that they want, they buy it on credit. They don’t want to cook, so they go out to eat and put the bill and tip on the credit card. Too much of this, and they are right where the credit card company wants them; this is, after all, how credit card companies make a lot of their money, besides them getting a kickback for a small percentage of all of the products and services the user puts on the card. Pretty soon, a young college-grad with a white-collar job, a studio apartment, and a fancy new car finds himself at the mercy of his own spending habits. The lessons of fiscal responsibility that were never taught at home are now being learned the hard way.
And even those of us who DO pay our credit cards on time every month are getting increasingly annoyed with the cost of all of the necessities that show up on the billing statement every month. In other words, just to SURVIVE – buying necessities like gas, food, car repairs, and so on – when all of those things show up on the credit card bill every 30 days, it can be quite annoying and sometimes depressing. The fear that we face a terrible economic future is starting to take hold among even the level-headed mainstream Americans.
Since its founding in the 1970s, the National Alliance has never taken a strong and specific position on most matters that deal with the economy. The main reason for this reluctance to bring up the subject was that we didn’t want to try to attract people to us because of our economic policy. We were concerned that if we started talking about the economy, then a segment of our audience would start to see the dollar sign instead of the Life Rune – the symbol of the Alliance that stands for racial rebirth and renewal – and the last thing we need is a bunch of hobbyists who claim to have the well-being of the race as their top priority when really it is just that they think our economic policy sounds like money in the bank to them. So, for that reason, we have never had a specific economic policy in the past and – for the same reason – we aren’t going to have much of a specific economic policy now. We WILL discuss some general features of the economy that will be necessary to support a White racial homeland that we hope to create in North America in the near future, but we’ll get to that in a minute.
The National Alliance’s reluctance to bring economics to the fore of things is centered on the fact that, in our worldview, economic matters take a backseat to racial matters. There is certainly no denying that a strong race needs a viable and stable economy if it is to make great strides in moving itself forward and upward along the evolutionary path, but standard of living and economic growth and capitalist ego-centrism are well down on the list of “most important things” for the survival of the White race. We can’t ignore the economy forever; at some point, the specifics of the economy that will function with our White racial homeland will have to be laid out and followed. But for now, I’ll just stick to generalities.
The economy that we’ll have in the White racial homeland of the future will be a race-centered economy. Since there won’t be any non-Whites living within our territory, obviously all of the economic positions in society will be filled by Whites – and yes, that includes all of the so-called “low” jobs that are filled now largely by Mexicans. Incidentally, on that subject, it goes without saying that we won’t have ANY governmental leader calling for more non-White immigrants in order that the “low” jobs in society get filled. Our leaders will accept the principles of progressive White racialism, and that means that they will understand and fight for a Whites-only work force, from the top of the economic spectrum to the bottom.
The economy of our White homeland will be a self-sufficient economy. We will not depend on any non-White nation for any essentials: heavy industry, sources of energy, or food production. We might import some non-essential items from non-White countries, but our economy will be structured so that any breakdown of the inflow of imports from non-White countries will have absolutely NO effect on the basic effectiveness of our White economy. We might consider setting up preferred trade agreements with other White nations but, even then, we will take pains to make sure that all of our most fundamental needs are taken care of on our own turf. This policy has gradually been abandoned ever since the end of the Second World War, with the result that the United States is now almost at the economic mercy of non-White nations, especially China.
We will also adopt a strict policy of fiscal responsibility, which is completely absent today within the federal government. That lack of responsibility is now a national crisis, with the trade deficit climbing higher and higher with each month and, as I mentioned earlier with regard to credit card debt, that lack of accountability has trickled down to the individual consumer. In our White racial homeland, there will be no trade deficits. Quite to the contrary. Useful work – production and artisanship and agriculture – will become once again important parts of our culture, with a de-emphasis on careers that create nothing, but rather merely push money around in such a way that more of it finds its way into the bank accounts of the money-movers. A massive re-education program will have to be launched toward the end of re-teaching the values of money and property management, self-reliance, and controlled and rational spending habits.
The economy of the White racial homeland that we in the National Alliance hope to bring into being will be a simpler economy. Items will last longer, and those that break will be more likely to get fixed than thrown away. Quality will be the order of the day in the manufacture of every type of product. Planned obsolescence will be discouraged instead of being – like today – the unwritten and unspoken modus operandi of all business enterprises. I can’t say that a dishwasher or a microwave will cost less in our White racial homeland economy than it does now, but the one you do buy will definitely be more reliable and will last longer, at least it will if I and the rest of the members of the National Alliance have anything to say about it.
And if and when the economy goes down the tubes, let’s be ready to do something about it. There is an unlimited future ahead of us if we can secure a White homeland, and I’m not talking here about an unlimited economic future. The economics will be enough to keep us strong and stable, but the real progress will be biological progress. And all of the economic talk is, for us, just a means to that end.
I’m Erich Gliebe, and thanks for being with me again today.
