We are not witnessing a decline, but an engineered destruction of everything Americans used to hold very dear.
Written three years ago in 2007, Rayburn’s opinions were, ironically, a foreshadowing of things to come. WW~

“Don’t tell me I am wrong, you must first endeavor to prove it! Don’t simply disagree with me, show me why I am wrong, and for God’s sake move it. For if you cannot prove that I am wrong, I must assume I’m right, but if you can prove to me that I am wrong, I’ll for once get to sleep at night.”
W.P. Rayburn, BA, Anthropology, JD
America is in decline. And the world knows it. Yet it is still difficult for Americans to grasp that we are declining. After all, we have a 12 trillion dollar gross domestic product, by far the strongest economy in the world. We have a low rate of unemployment. We have the most technologically advanced military in the world, with the ability to project raw power anywhere on the globe. Our per capita standard of living is the highest of any country in the world and on and on and on, ad infinitum. So how could we be in decline? What are the other nations of the world observing to which we Americans are apparently blind? And what, if anything, can we do about it?
Among many of my fellow countrymen there is a general sense of anxiety about the future. A sort of low grade dread that not only are their lives as Americans not improving, but for reasons they just can’t put their finger on, are indeed getting worse. I almost haven’t the heart to tell them, but they’re right. What is happening in America is inexorable decline. And civilizations in decline have historically been characterized by a host of disparate problems that seem unrelated, but in fact, in the aggregate, are part of a discernible mosaic of doom. The anxiety and uncertainty felt by most Americans is a result of the social fallout from this mosaic. The decline of nations manifest in numerous ways, many of which we are viewing everyday in the news, or in our pocketbooks, or perhaps in our own feelings of isolation, emptiness or marginalization. But don’t despair my fellow countrymen, for at the very least, you aren’t alone. As a matter of fact, you are a member of a growing group of concerned citizens who are refusing to bury their heads in the sand any longer and are mad as hell and ready to fight. So how you may ask, is America declining? What are some of the signs and symptoms of this decline, and is it possible to turn it around? While this essay is by no means an exhaustive list of the problems facing America, it will illustrate some of the reasons why many of us are as concerned as we are.
To start with, our most sacred institution, the family, is in tatters. The breakdown of the nuclear family is an epidemic in America. This breakdown has occurred in the historical blink of an eye. In the 1950’s the nuclear family was relatively intact with low overall divorce rates and high numbers of stay at home moms who were able to love and guide their children, to teach them right from wrong. Just over 50 years later the institution of family is a desolate wasteland. Divorce rates are over 50%. Illegitimacy rates have soared by 500%. Over 50% of children are raised in single parent homes. In nuclear families that are left over 60% of families with children younger than ten have working mothers and fathers. Very little is left at the end of the day for investing in the future generations.
At the root of almost all of our social problems, the breakdown of the family is ubiquitous. The prospects for a healthy nuclear family are so bleak that a whole generation of young men and women are choosing empty “careers” over family. There is an entire generation of young adults who are simply choosing to not marry and have children. This is a tragedy, for not only are these men and women generally unhappy and unfulfilled (money doesn’t kiss you back), but among white Americans, they are contributing to a birth rate crisis that is a greater threat to white Western man’s existence than the Plague, World War 1 and World War 2 combined. If these trends continue then the future is indeed bleak. We must endeavor to save the family with the utmost haste.
Economically, America is a model of un-sustainability in practically every conceivable way. We are currently in debt to foreign nations in the trillions and counting. Our annual trade deficits with other nations are running at almost 1 trillion dollars annually. In layman’s terms we are consuming more than we produce. This can’t go on indefinitely without a painful readjustment. Imagine a family farm producing 100 bushels of corn annually but consuming 1 million bushels of corn annually. It doesn’t take Adam Smith to figure out that this family will not survive for very long. America is doing exactly what our farm family is doing. How can we do this? We do it by amassing debt, debt, and more debt. Already Americans are working two months out of the year just to service the U.S debt, and another two months to pay off their own escalating debt. How did this come about, when throughout most of our history we have been an entirely self sufficient nation? Traitorous politicians who are owned by the large global corporations, that’s how. Our insane “free trade” policies have gutted almost all of the major industries of our country and decimated the wages of millions of American workers. No longer can a man get a job at the local union plant and support a wife and a family with 3 young children. We may have low unemployment, but the majority of all job creation is now in the service sector. Service jobs are inferior to manufacturing jobs in salary and benefits. We are going from a nation of producers to a nation of janitors and bartenders. Free trade is a silly utopian vision at best and at worst is a sham. Such trade agreements as NAFTA and GATT began the nailing of the lid on the coffin of what was a great nation. And how does free trade benefit the global corporations at our expense? Simple: Nike can pull up stakes in America, laying off thousands of workers, relocate in Cambodia or China, pay their workers .31 cents an hour(as opposed to $9.50 an hour for an American) produce their product at near slave wages and sell their shoes and apparel back to Americans with virtually no foreign tariffs to pay. It’s that diabolically simple.
The newly globalized companies start to reap the benefits of global “free trade” while the former American employees of these companies feel lucky to get a job at Wal-Mart. As you can imagine this creates a staggering profit for companies that relocate. Those workers left behind will not be as thrilled about the fruits of globalism, or as Pat Buchanan calls it “Globaloney.” The notion that this helps the American people in the form of cheaper consumer goods is an absurd lie. Free trade is a zero sum game. Corporations win, American workers lose, period. One of our first questions is therefore answered. The economies health is gauged primarily by the volume of business conducted and profit made by a handful of companies who are making obscene profits at the expense of your average American. We appear to have a bustling economy, but there is a catch. There is more wealth, but in fewer hands. People are working longer and harder, for an ever decreasing piece of the financial pie, and all the while are being told by the corrupt mass media that the economy is “booming.” Our corrupt leaders in Washington have forgotten that a nation is more than an economy. The economy of a nation is meant to serve the people, not the other way around. This degradation of our working class because of the immoral money grubbing of the elite class is a major cause of our decline.
Our economy is a veritable house of cards. It could collapse at any time. Our unsustainable consumption and massive debt are signaling the nations of the world that America is not as safe a bet as she used to be. The dollar is declining in value relative to almost every major currency. Some countries are even discussing trading in Euros instead of dollars. When foreign drug dealers are arrested with Euros (which many are), it is not a good sign. The recent surge in the value of gold and other precious metals is another sign that the dollar is not inspiring as much confidence as it once did. As the dollar declines in value and concomitant exchange rates, those cheap free trade consumer products won’t be as cheap anymore. Although heavily tied to trade and debt, the declining value of our currency is evolving from a symptom into a cause of our decline.
The mainstreaming of moral degeneracy and decadence is one of the most telltale signs of a nation in decline. And if you haven’t noticed, 21st century America makes the ancient Romans and Greeks look like Puritans. Civilizations historically seem to pass through three stages, each with its own different ethos. The first stage, or the ascendancy of a civilization, is marked by discipline, social conservatism (as opposed to self expression), struggle against man, nature and self, and a relatively homogenous population with a strong group identity. Ascending civilizations possess a world view that emphasizes scarcity and the need to sacrifice individual needs for group needs. This first stage was most evident in America in its first 200 years. Americans were mostly rural folk with a strong sense of discipline, a willingness to sacrifice for family and country and strong traditional religious values. Selfishness and self centeredness were mortal sins. The early Americans who possessed these traditional values settled the entire continent, conquered all the great powers of the world, and built a veritable empire. Not a bad record for a people who, by today’s standards, would be considered unenlightened, narrow minded, right wing extremists (and probably racist, sexist, nativist, or any other of the liberal epithets).
At its peak, a civilization will transition into its second stage, a period similar to the golden age of Greece. America’s golden age seemed to be at the end of World War 2.
After centuries of toil and conflict we Americans were reaping the rewards of our well earned prosperity. Optimism was rampant as birthrates boomed and incomes grew. We were not ashamed to celebrate our success and superiority. In schools, entertainment, and literature our culture was permeated by our optimism and our greatness. During the two decades from 1945-1965 we prospered as a nation like never before. Unfortunately, our golden age didn’t last as long as it did for the Greeks, for with this prosperity came material excess, not just to the elite, but to almost everyone. With material excess came social excess, and the seeds of our eventual decline. The third and final stage of great civilizations was quick to follow.
The final stage of great civilizations can be described as decadence and decline. By the 1960’s we Americans were richer than ever before. There was an entire generation of children who were given so much and had to work so little that unemployed teenagers, for the first time in history, were able to develop their own culture and their own consumer block. With this material excess came an almost instantaneous shift in the ethos of America. Conservatism, hard work and sacrifice were no longer necessary. Hedonism, rebellion and self expression became the rage. Material excess made a worldview of scarcity unnecessary, and with it the conservative values that made us a great nation were officially “out.” The abundance created by our conservatism and hard work and sacrifice had provided excess in both material wealth and in leisure time (the proverbial devil’s workshop.) Every great civilization seems to descend into degeneracy when it starts to create excess. Excess diminishes the need to adhere to a system of morals that evolved as a result of scarcity and imminent peril. So called traditional values reflect the kind of discipline required to survive such threats as a crop failure, or a protracted military conflict. Why adhere to stuffy traditional values when our excess makes such threats unlikely? By the mid-60’s, America was in need of some new, more “progressive” values.
In America our material excess is currently guaranteed by our unrivaled military. As no foreign power is yet capable of depriving us of the fruits of our excess, we are guaranteed our freedom to live decadent lives. The entire nation is in the grips of a mass media that promotes every conceivable form of filth and degenerate activity. Daily we are shown images of transvestites parading down our streets. We have television shows that feature loveable homosexuals teaching “straight” men how to primp like women and we glamorize the lives of single 30 something women who live like whores. Our American culture now promotes the most abject forms of promiscuity among the young and the degradation of females as fungible sex objects. Our first Amendment used to be a brilliant bulwark against tyranny as we were able to freely engage in any variety of political discourse with impunity. Now the first Amendment is used to tear down conservative religious symbols, legalize flag burning, legalize pornography, protect the rights of pedophiles, and promote educational programs that teach grade school children to put condoms on cucumbers. I could go on and on and on, but I think the message is clear (besides, I deal with the poison of modern liberalism in another essay.)
So what have the new “progressive” values brought us in the last 30 to 40 years? A 50% divorce rate and the virtual destruction of the family, a 500% increase in illegitimacy rates, a drug epidemic of staggering proportions, an exploding prison population, the elevation of absurd political correctness to a religion, whose heretics are branded with such labels as racist, sexist, etc. (so much for freedom of speech), high school dropouts by the millions, social programs that transfer the wealth of the most productive members of society to the most unproductive members of society, the demonization of our national heroes because they were slave owners, white guilt, ethnic divisions……..need I go on? You name the social malady and we have it. One can understand the revival of evangelical Christianity as a reaction against the sickness we see all around us. Humans need a strong sense of right and wrong, a strong sense of identity and shared purpose with their fellow man, none of which are provided by our society today. The “Brotherhood of Man” our elites have been shoving down our throats for decades is a failure, just like it was in the Soviet Union, because a worldview emphasizing brotherhood with everyone means that people are close or connected to no one. Imperfect as they are, churches have become one of the last mainstream institutions that give Americans any sense of order, community, and a higher sense of purpose, as well as an anchor to hold us down to Earth in this insane nation of ours. We are a sick, twisted nation. We live in nation where wrong is right and right is wrong. Perhaps humans are not highly evolved enough to handle free time and disposable income. I really have no idea. What I do know is that our systemic moral degeneracy has weakened us almost to the point of no return, and is a major symptom of our decline.
One of the most lethal threats to the American nation is the shrinking of America’s white majority. The browning of America, as it is called, is transforming us from a racially homogenous nation into a third world polyglot cesspool, and more than any aforementioned reason for decline, this is the most serious. America used to be a white nation. It was founded as a white nation and was intended by the founding fathers to remain a white nation. When immigrants were allowed to immigrate in the 19th and early 20th century they were “white only” for a reason. White Europeans came to America from a variety of European countries to live the American dream: Freedom, prosperity and limitless possibilities awaited many of Europe’s best and brightest. And oh to what heights they soared when given the opportunity. Whites from all over Europe eventually peopled America from coast to coast, forever casting off the yoke of the oppressive monarchic regimes of the old continent. Within two generations, most newly arrived European immigrants had ceased to be German, Irish, Polish or Italian. They were now simply Americans. We were able to surmount the language barriers that existed between us by widespread instruction in English and a shared sense of purpose. Soon we were playing baseball, eating apple pie and marching off to war together. We were white Americans, period. We had a deep sense of national and racial pride that was a healthy manifestation of our success, prosperity and sense of oneness with our racial brethren. This was the great melting pot theory at its best. The melting pot is not universal though. It has only worked when blending together people with a distinct racial identity. The only obstacles to such people amalgamating were language (solved by one generation of public schooling), and forgetting archaic national antipathies. The latter would prove to be the most challenging as ethnic politics remained divisive among whites until about the end of the First World War. Sixty years after World War 2 whites in America are simply American. I may be of Irish extraction, but I simply can’t remember why I am supposed to hate the English. And seeing as I couldn’t tell one if I saw one, I don’t really care.
For the last forty years America has been transformed from a white nation into an increasingly brown assemblage of competing ethnicities. The Immigration Act of 1965 opened the door for millions of non-whites to immigrate to America. Unlike European immigrants of old, the new non-white immigrants are mostly not assimilating, but instead are forming ethnic enclaves that retain the national characteristics of the third world from whence they came. As a result of our immigration policies the white majority of America has drastically declined. The sense of nationalism the original white Americans had helped to make this the greatest nation on Earth. As white America shrinks in proportion to the non-white hordes, America has become an abstraction to many white Americans. These disillusioned whites no longer feel a sense of oneness with their fellow countrymen, who don’t look, speak, act, or think as they do, and who possess a completely different history and heritage than white Americans. If whites become a minority in America, what will we have to be loyal to, other than our own ethnic group? The displacement of the white population by throngs of third world non-whites is another major reason for America’s decline.
Finally, the rampant corruption of our government and our major institutions is both a symptom and a reason for our decline. As Lord Acton once said, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Never has this been truer than in America, where it seems everyone is on the take, even our churches. Our wealth as a nation has turned money into a new pagan god. Anyone and everyone it seems, is for sale. Here are a few of our institutions that have been so thoroughly corrupted by money that they are virtually useless to us in any real sense, and are as follows.
A FEW OF OUR CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS:
(THE SHORT LIST)
For most of our history our government has been small and functioned to serve our needs, not perpetuate itself. Since the 1930’s our government has grown into a bloated juggernaut, with around three trillion (with a T) dollars a year of OUR money at its disposal. Politicians are up for sale to the highest bidder. Legalized bribery in the form of Lobbies and PAC’s puts the needs of the few ahead of the needs of the masses. If the welfare of a contributing Political Action Committee is in conflict with the welfare of the American people, guess whose welfare is paramount? The ruling elite in Washington are out of touch with the masses to the point that it staggers the imagination. The American people are so disillusioned with our corrupt government that most Americans of voting age don’t even bother to vote because they know it is pointless. Our government will continue to spend OUR money however it sees fit. We no longer have a constitutional republic, but indeed are subjects of a federal dictatorship. What else can you call it when unelected judicial activists routinely act in contravention of the constitution and the will of the people by interpreting the constitution in any way they see fit while making a habit of overturning referendums approved by a majority of a state’s citizens, ( see Cal. Prop. 187.) The sooner we declare independence from these federal judges and corrupt politicians, the sooner we may hail,”Sic Semper Tyrranus.”
THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM:
The legitimacy of our system of civil and criminal law is highly questionable when money seems to thwart justice in so many cases, and racial considerations keep juries from convicting criminals who are guilty as hell (O.J. ring a bell.) More disturbing than this is the tendency of the criminal justice system to use the system to selectively prosecute dissenters and thought criminals. The so called “Hate Crime” laws at the local level are used almost exclusively to prosecute whites accused of violating political correctness. According to the politically correct orthodoxy, racial minorities can’t be “racist” and therefore can’t commit a hate crime. This double standard is of course absurd and perpetuates the notion that the courts authority is arbitrary and illegitimate, and used as a tool of tyranny against whites who are fed up with minorities getting special treatment virtually everywhere. The truth is, according to the FBI, blacks commit virtually ALL hate crimes against whites, Asians, and hispanics! This is another well known fact that is never mentioned in the politically correct media. Yet blacks are virtually never charged with hate crimes. This is wrong and indicates that so called “prosecutorial discretion” is a euphemism for selective prosecution.
A perfect example is the current case of the Duke Lacrosse players, who are accused of raping a black woman. This has become a political media circus. Why, I ask, is so much attention being focused on this case (which is of spurious merit), when most interracial rape cases are black on white. The truth will shock you. There are over 20,000 reported black on white rapes annually in America! That’s right, according to the NCIS, 20,000 reported black on white rapes. That is approximately 55 per day! Would you like to know how many white on black rapes are reported each year? Approximately 100. That’s right, 100 (with two zeros.) You see then, that there is an agenda at work here. A virtual holocaust of rape is occurring against white women, and the media chooses to focus on the Duke rape case. You decide.
I will deal strictly with colleges and universities as secondary education has been irrevocably destroyed by liberal policies and the reader needs no explanation. Our institutions of higher learning used to be open forums of ideas in the true Socratic tradition. If ever there was an open marketplace of ideas and a forum for utilizing our 1st Amendment right to free speech it should be (and used to be) our colleges and universities. Unfortunately most of our most sacred institutions of higher learning have become as repressive as a Puritan church. Political correctness is the new religion that is practiced across our country in almost every college and university in the land. Its heretics and dissenters are figuratively burned at the stake, constantly, for expressing any view contrary to the politically correct canon. Campus speech codes enforce the new religion of higher learning by suspending and expelling any heretic.
Who are these heretics? You can usually tell them by the color of their skin. They are traditionally white, Christian, conservative, and they dare even question the liberal dogma being taught in higher education. Even bringing up such anathema as gender- differences, or the IQ differences between the races, or the black/white/Asian crime differential can get you suspended from school. Students with any different point of view other than that preached by the high priests and priestesses of liberalism and political correctness have quickly learned to keep their mouths shut. The institutions of higher learning are nothing more than incubators for socially engineered zombies, who may not know where Australia is on a map, but by damn, they have the right attitudes! There is a major agenda at play here and it has corrupted our centers of higher learning. Where is the corruption you ask? It’s in the transfer of billions of dollars to universities, public and private, from the big foundations (Ford, Rockefeller, et. al), as well as the federal government, all of whom are pushing their liberal agenda and political correctness on America. Professors are hired and fired according to their views. Professors are given grants and tenure by fitting in with the liberal social engineers designs. Political correctness is more than just the language of liberal philosophy, it is a mandate.
Once the last bastion of sanity and community in this crazy nation of ours, churches are becoming corrupted and agendized by money. Smaller churches are shutting down in droves while the “Mega Churches” are taking over. These mega churches are sprouting up from coast to coast. Some resemble small cities with all the accompanying amenities. Some of these churches bring in tens of millions of dollars annually and are run like corporations. If you look at their list of donors you will invariably find massive amounts of money coming in from big business, foreign nations, and the globalist controlled charitable foundations. Any church that doesn’t conform to the agenda of their biggest donors will find itself with empty coffers. This inevitably leads to corruption. Churches used to lead their communities. Now many are just one more pawn of the globalist agenda. In many cases where churches desperately need to lead, they stand mute. Such corruption is abhorrent in that churches are the one place where people come to be led in a spirit of faith and trust, and there is nothing more insidious than the heartless exploitation of the power that trust brings.
This one is pretty damn obvious. Anyone who controls public opinion (e.g. controls people’s minds and thoughts) will be made a tool of the world’s financial elite by any means necessary. You can rest assured, it already is. The mainstream media is nothing more than a pavlovian tool of the global elite and their social engineers. Just as in academia, the media allows no dissent from its agenda’s orthodoxy. And don’t count on your favorite talk radio show host to be honest about important issues either. As long as they pretend to be advocates of one party, they are implying that the other party is actually different, which it isn’t. Talk radio, especially conservative talk radio, is nothing more than a valve for disaffected conservatives to let off steam. In all actuality talk radio rarely deviates from the government line and keeps people ignorant of some of the most important issues of the day. It’s just bread and circuses for the masses.
“Groups with big money have to have big organizations and far reaching agendas. This is not a conspiracy, but simply human nature.”
So who are the globalists we all keep hearing about, whom we can thank for our declining nation. What is the globalist agenda? The term “globalist” is an umbrella term for the men who represent the organizations that encompass all of the giants of banking, industry, the media and just about any representative of any of the most powerful financial cartels in the world. Like any other group of people with similar interests, they get together to discuss ways to further their business agenda. There is no conspiracy. It is simply the age old ability of those who have to rule over those who have not. Their agenda is a global economy. Their tools are multiculturalism and equalitarianism. These ideologies are used to acclimate all of us to the global free market they envision. Such “divisive” concepts as race and nationalism are enemy #1 to the globalists. Sounds simple you say? It is simple. It is as simple as I have described.
REGARDING CORRUPTION: HERE IS HOW IT WORKS
(1) Elite globalists collude to develop policies that best suit their agreed upon interests (2) These globalists organizations represent the financial giants of the world and use their money, through donations to their “not for profit” foundations to spread their tax free trillions to virtually every conceivable mainstream institution on Earth. These “donations” create dependencies among their beneficiaries and invariably corrupt the institutions and make them susceptible to control, and all the while these institutions claim to be on the side of the every day people they represent. This duplicity and hypocrisy is the essence of corruption.
As I have shown, our once great nation is in deep, deep trouble. We are declining as a nation. Our problems (or in classic Orwellian doublespeak, “Challenges”) are systemic and pervasive. It is important to understand this if we are going to try to salvage what is left, but the hour is late and the time is now. What is going on in our once great nation is disturbing to an increasingly large number of my fellow citizens, and for good reason. I have attempted to outline a few of the major problems we are facing to let my fellow nationals know that they are not alone in their consternation, but this is also a call to action. What is going on is a war. Not a war fought with guns and armies, but a war of ideas, a war for the hearts and minds of white Americans. The ideas which are being fought over are nationalism versus globalism, our sovereignty versus a one world government, liberal insanity versus conservative values, racial and ethnic oneness versus destabilizing multiculturalism, and family versus money worship. We cannot afford to hide any longer. We must commit ourselves to fight in this, the greatest existential battle ever waged against Western man. White America seems to have been marked for extinction. I, for one, am not going to take this lying down. For as Winston Churchhill once said, “It is better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.” As earlier stated, we in a war for the hearts and minds of the greatest people ever to walk the face of the Earth, white Americans. Our weapons are information. Our battlefield is the forum of public opinion. As white America awakens to its plight, let us pray that truth will prevail and we will free ourselves from the yoke that our enemies have placed on us. And may God be with us.
In conclusion, you may ask what you can do as one person. The short answer is: plenty. Don’t despair your relative lack of power. As Margaret Meade observed, the only thing that has ever changed the world are small committed groups of citizens. What you can do, is to read about and study the issues in America that you find the most troubling. Draw your own conclusions and don’t rely on so called “authorities.” The media’s talking heads are almost all corrupt these days. Listen to your heart. Your gut feelings are usually right on the money, pay heed to them. Realize you have been being relentlessly conditioned by our corrupt institutions to respond to issues in whatever way they want you to. Free yourself from their mind control. Find like minded people and discuss these issues. You should research organizations that seem to share your beliefs, and if they seem legitimate, join them. Stand against lies and falsehood wherever you find them. You don’t have to rant or rave, but show your disapproval, even if it’s just in your facial expressions (if that’s all that seems appropriate.) But don’t allow lies and anti-white propaganda to go unchecked. You would be amazed at how many people share your views and are simply waiting for someone to show them how to stand up for the truth. Be a leader, and people will follow you. If only 10% of you who get this message begin to stand up, we will create a critical mass in the collective consciousness of the silent majority of white Americans who agree, but have been cowed into silence by the yapping, name calling, liberal lap dogs of the corrupt establishment. Remember the old Chinese proverb: The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take that step, however small, and you will change the world. And as always, I wish you peace, strength, and good luck.
