Book of the Month

Posted by Socrates in Book of the Month program, book selections, books, Socrates, William Gayley Simpson at 2:01 pm | Permanent Link

“Which Way, Western Man?” by William Gayley Simpson, 2003. It’s a good book if you ignore the references to Jesus.

      Essential reading for all WN. Having said that, Simpson’s book isn’t an easy read and he takes awhile to gather momentum. The last chapters are some of the best, hard hitting with surprising insights on every page.

      My only criticism of WWWM is that it tends toward pessimism, almost a cry from the heart as to why the best and most noble are being destroyed by the scum of the earth.
      For an more positive and up to date approach the book to read is, “New Right versus Old Right” by Greg Johnson.

      I don’t think that Simpson’s references to Jesus were something to be ignored. Rather, that is one of the parts of the book I enjoyed the most.

      Jesus was on fire . . . for his people. He accepted death rather than let that fire be quenched.

      Simpson saw the virtue in that . . . but he wanted the fire to be Aryan, not Semitic, and for Aryans.

      But he admired anyone who had the fire, who wanted to burn their life out for a cause, an artistic vision, for the enoblement of their own kind.

      But Simpson’s attempt to adhere to the life-style that Jesus preached is one of the best parts of the book! It ends in complete futility, and shows that the Christian message is basically Semitic, and not for Aryan-derived peoples.

      Simpson was looking forward to a religion for us, by us, and promoting us. He did not see it, could not dictate it in tables of stone, but said that it would evolve over time.

      But, yes, the man was a bizarre genius.

      I generally avoid reading those 1,000 page long books written by pretentious, cranky old White men, where they complain about the imminent demise of Western, Christian civilization. Whiners, pedants and reactionaries are of no use to us!!!!!!!!
