People interested in the revival of Western Culture usually focus on the various political and cultural aspects of the problem, which are certainly vital and worthy. A different focus, one that White activists almost always overlook, consists of the actual material, the sine qua non, of the future: children. There are two basic problems connected with the biological perpetuation of the race and culture. The first is, how to motivate and enable men and women to form stable marriages and have children, and the second is, how to raise the children to become mature adults who will perpetuate the White race and Western Culture. In our circles (not to mention the wider culture) not much effort is devoted to either of these problems, especially the second. I have found, to my disgust and horror, that very few parents give much thought to the proper raising of children. To my way of thinking—the Germanic tendency that places everything under periodic reevaluation—that deficiency is appalling. Every badly trained child is a tragedy, a tragedy that ripples through the wider society and down the generations. Therefore, I would like to address the art of raising children.
I offer this advice because I was fortunate enough to snare a bride in my early middle age (finally!), and become father to six children. From the first, I have approached fatherhood with the utmost seriousness, knowing that I am responsible for six souls, and also from a sense of pride, desiring to show the world the mettle of my lineage. Mostly, however, I trained my children the best I could because I loved them and wanted them to have the best chance of success. I must say that all the principles I outline below are just that, principles; my wife and I strove to abide by them, but we were far from perfect in their observance. Stuff happens with six kids, believe me. However, we followed them well enough that adults who interact with our children literally rave about their maturity and competence. (I am not bragging about “my” great work as a parent; I know very well that the good reputation of my children comes partly from a low prevailing standard, and that my children are themselves partly responsible for the formation of their character. I also believe that the grace of God was a crucial element. The only credit I claim is being aware of the issues and doing my best.)
I will discuss the raising of children under three headings (interspersed with my own experiences). Children need moral, social, and political formation. The last of these really falls under the second, but the times call for me to develop it at greater length. I will not offer a comprehensive treatment under all headings, but only certain issues I think are most important. Read more
