Kevin MacDonald: I am the new editor of The Occidental Quarterly. TOQ fills a unique niche on the right in bringing together scholarly articles on a wide range of topics that are mired in political correctness elsewhere.
There are quite a few reasons for the precarious state of our civilization and our people. But one of the main ones is that we have lost the intellectual and moral high ground to a cultural elite that is hostile to our people and our culture. The domination of the mass media and the academic world by elites that are hostile to White identity and interests is a major barrier for educated Whites to act on behalf of their interests. White people cower in fear of being called a racist for believing and acting in ways that are absolutely normal and natural for all the other peoples of the world. While other peoples defend themselves, their culture and their borders, societies in Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand that have been controlled by Whites for hundreds of years are the only ones to accept their demise as a moral imperative. We view this outcome as the result of competition over the construction of culture in which the legitimate interests of Whites have been compromised.
A main purpose of TOQ is to change the attitudes of White people so that they will feel confident identifying as White and explicitly asserting their interests as Whites. Politically aware Whites must understand that the elites that dominate culture and the political process in the West are intellectually and morally bankrupt.
All of the scientific data are on our side. Increased ethnic diversity is associated with a host of societal ills, including decreased support for social welfare programs and lack of public trust. Those who argue that Western societies have a unique moral obligation to cede cultural and political control to non-Whites completely ignore the legitimate interests of Whites in maintaining their cultural and political control. No one argues that countries like Korea or Uganda have a moral obligation to allow other peoples to swamp the native population.
As editor, my first priority is to increase the number of subscribers. Subscriptions are only $40 for four issues — a very minimal amount – certainly not a financial burden to the vast majority of our target audience. Here is the link to our subscription page.
Having a large subscriber base will make it possible to for TOQ to be self-sustaining. We have established a policy whereby writers will be paid at rates that are competitive with other well-known journals of political opinion and scholarship. The amount of the stipend is not large. The writers who are putting in all the time and energy producing this material will still be working mainly to make a contribution to the ideas and ideals espoused by the journal. But it is important to get White advocacy beyond the volunteer level and to eventually support a large number of professional White advocates able to effectively compete with the legions of professionals who are able to find employment with our opponents.
The first issue under my editorship will soon be sent to the printer. I am sure that our readers will find it an exciting and informative reading experience. The issue will have four articles:
John Graham and Kevin MacDonald: “Is the Madoff Scandal Paradigmatic?” This article discusses several books on the Madoff affair and relates the findings to other research on Jews.
Raymond Wolters: “The Latest Trend in School Reform.” This article recounts the history of failed attempts to raise the academic performance of African-American children. It focuses particularly on recently legitimated concerns about the culture of the Black family as the latest hope among the liberals for raising academic performance.
Kevin MacDonald: “Why are Academics Liberals?” This article discusses a recent important academic theory about why the academic world became a bastion of the left and shows that the findings are compatible with the conclusions of The Culture of Critique.
Roger Devlin: “Louis DeBonald: Neglected Anti-Modern.” Devlin reviews the writing of an early 19th-century French thinker who opposed many of the currents of modernity. His reasoned opposition to divorce is particularly interesting.
