In Wilmot Robertson’s watershed book The Dispossessed Majority (1972), in the chapter titled “The Esthetic Prop,” he describes the Esthetic Prop, which he associates most closely with the “Nordic physical ideal,” as a “genetic resource” and “an enduring, deeply-ingrained esthetic preference on the part of most Americans.” It is also a source of White (i.e., European) racial feeling and allegiance and one of the few remaining props supporting the White position:
It is the…Esthetic Prop which helps the American [White] Majority to hold on to the trappings, but not the substance, of its former power. Only in the sector of esthetics, through the pervasiveness of the idealized Nordic [i.e., Northern European] biological type and its continued acceptance as the national template of physical charm and attractiveness, has the Majority been able to mount a small but successful holding action in the present racial melee.
In the nearly half century since these words were written our racial position has continued to deteriorate, becoming identified ever more clearly and correctly as an existential life and death struggle. The causes of White dispossession, replacement and destruction — multiracialism (euphemistically called “diversity”), non-White immigration and racial intermixture — have continued to worsen as intended, promoted and enforced by the dominant anti-White establishment, which define this process as “progress” and any pro-White opposition to it as “racism.” In this growing darkness Robertson’s words point us toward a still active beacon of light which has been given too little consideration. We should give new heed to what his words clearly suggest: that the Esthetic Prop is a latent source of power that could and should be activated to help our cause.
Can the beauty of our race play a role in our racial salvation, in preventing our racial destruction? Could the beauty of our race provide a significant source of inspiration and motivation for racial preservation and resistance to racial destruction, i.e., motivation for its preservation and resistance to its destruction? Does it have such power? That depends on the extent it is valued, appreciated and loved, not taken for granted as an unchangeable and unthreatened part of our surroundings, and the extent to which the connection between that beauty and the race to which it belongs, and the growing danger to the continued existence of both, is understood. When that connection is made and understood, as Robertson suggests, the beauty of our race is a source of inspiration and motivation, and so of strength and power, that gives us another reason — an obvious and undeniable reason — to value, care about and love our race, to want it to live and continue to exist, and to recognize and oppose the causes of its destruction.
