What’s in it for me?

Christian morality is an oxymoron.

If an animal learns that it will get food if it does one thing and a painful shock doing another, it will do the thing that gives it food. This is not morality.

Christianity offers the Big Payoff for being what it says is good and the ultimate pain for what it considers bad. This involves not the slightest hint of morality. If it is true, there is no morality involved.

“What must I do to be saved?” What must I do to enjoy eternal bliss and avoid eternal agony. This is a Pavlovian choice. To call it a morality is a joke.

Before you think I am siding with the atheists, let me add that most of the self-styled “practical thinkers” are exactly the same way.

I am a moral person. I do things because they are right. The Practical Person asks me what I get out of it.

I have paid a huge price in my life and have gotten nothing out of it personally. But I couldn’t live any other way. Most of the pleasures people pay so dearly for don’t impress me. I love to do good things for people. I love to spread ideas that help.

You might say I love power, real power, the ability to change things for what I consider the better. That is my reward.

I was talking to a multimillionaire on the phone and described what I was doing for the cause while I was moving. He sounded a little puzzled and said, “Well, if you enjoy it, fine.”

Rich people enjoy big cars and boats. To me, having a boat is about the most boring thing in the world.

From any practical point of view I have wasted my talents. There was nothing in it for me.

From the Practical Person’s point of view, there was nothing in it for me. From the Christian point of view, there was nothing in it for me.

But I AM me, and I’m glad I did it.

A moral person acts on his morality. That is very hard for anyone else to understand.



I’m Moved

I am now living in a nice tenth-floor condo.

As Mark Twain said, “All sane white people hate noise.”

So does everybody here.

Before my life was all clutter. All the years of writing, learning computers, keeping remembrances, all that is gone now.

All serious business involves trust and promises. When I talked about promises not kept, one commenter wrote they wished somebody would even make promises to them.

Poor baby!

Well, in order to be in any serious business you have to deal in promises, and in any serious business, you have to do two things:

1) Do things for other people, and

2) Associate only with people who return the favor.

If no one ever even promises to do something for you you, you are either

1) doing nothing for anyone else or

2) running with trash.

This is not, as Kelly Bundy would put it, rocket surgery.

But I am no longer doing any serious business at all.

When I move, people always let me down. I could never use a professional mover because my stuff is so mixed together and some of it they cannot see.

That’s all gone. If anybody wants to use my top secret clearance now, they can forget it.

Back to the point. People let me down, as always. That brings me back to point 2) above. I suddenly realized, sitting out on my nice tenth-story balcony watching fireworks at a distance which makes their noise nicely muted but their colors beautiful, that my clutter is not just documents, it is people.

What do I need them for?

Nobody has anything interesting to say to me.

Writers are interesting, if you pick them carefully.

It would be interesting if they had retired from the same business I have.

But nobody has retired from exactly the same business I was in.

There isn’t even a name for the business I was in.

People are a pain. They don’t listen to each other, so they can talk endlessly. Their talk is like background music. Background music keeps out the silence. Talk keeps out the loneliness.

I was raised in extreme loneliness. But now cable and the Internet and the books I CHOOSE take up all my time. And I am personally very good company for me.

Nobody else understands what I am interested in.

One result of all this is that, when I am left alone, I am always glad to see the people I meet when I go out. New Yorkers and New Englanders were always closely packed together and were hostile to people. I am glad to see them when I have been alone awhile.

So my garbage chute and the big dump outside and the local charities and the recycling place are full of stuff I have dumped.

But now begins the people-dumping.

There will be a LOT of it.

The Last Ditch


The British Thought Police Take Action

The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) secretly filmed tape for a documentary about the British National Party (BNP) early last year. Since then the British police have been arresting BNP members and party leaders for what they said on that show.

You see, there is law in Britain against saying anything that might incite racial violence.

Please note that word “might.”

There are laws in America against inciting violence. The classic example is shouting “Fire!” in a crowded theatre. But that law has a very important exception. You may shout “Fire!” in a crowded theatre if there IS a fire in a crowded theater.

When it comes to being convicted of inciting to violence, British law has no such exception. A man was sent to prison for inciting to violence when every word he said was true. In the case of The Crown versus Pierce (1986) the court ruled that, under the racial laws, “The truth is no excuse.”

There is one more little difference between law in a free country and the British race laws against free speech. In order to be convicted for inciting violence in a free country you have to actually incite somebody.

The BBC documentary was made a year ago and there is no evidence that what the BNP members said during their private meeting incited anybody.

Oh, and one other little difference. If a TV station puts on a program that incites violence in a free country, the TV Company is as liable as the person who said the words. The question of condemning the BBC has not come up, and will never come up. They are being praised as apparatchniks of the British section of the World Politically Correct Thought Police.

Me and John and Nick

The two main arrestees in this Thought Police Raid were BNP leader Nick
Griffin and former BNP leader John Tyndall. I know them both.

John Tyndall spoke at the 2004 New Orleans Euro Convention. He is the kind of rip-roaring speaker who brings the crowd to its feet again and again. He is a hell of an act to follow.

Well, SOMEBODY had to speak right after John Tyndall.

When John Tyndall stepped down from the podium to be mobbed by his ecstatic admirers, somebody had to go up and follow that act.

They needed a sacrificial lamb, someone who was dumb enough and loyal enough to be the anticlimax right after one of the high points of the Convention.

Guess who they picked?

Oh, well, I have taken embarrassment for the cause for lesser reasons.

A few years ago, there was a leadership change inside the BNP and Nick Griffin took over the chairmanship. Once again, both the new chairman of the BNP and I spoke.

At this year’s Euro Convention, Nick Griffin searched me out. He was already having problems with the British Government and felt I might be able to help.

Nick Griffin Searches ME Out

The BNP gained some votes in the latest British election and, by some strange coincidence, they were denied the right to have a bank account in Britain. Many years ago I did a lot of work moving money from country to country to help fight terrorists. Since many of the places I worked for were former British colonies, all this was better known in Britain than in the US.

Once again, can you imagine a free country in which any party, no matter how radical, was banned by the authorities from having a bank account? That’s one way they handle opposition in Britain.

Tony Blair wants to help Bush make Iraq a Land of Liberty like Britain.

Nick Griffin asked me about his banking problem, and I am going to try to set up a bank account the BNP can use here.

As soon as I got back from New Orleans I called a big-time lawyer friend of mine whom I last saw on Capitol Hill when he was setting up a bank. Our conversation was a little confused at first. Finally he got what I was talking about.

“You mean,” He said, “They won’t let them put their OWN money into their OWN bank account?” He had thought they were trying to set up a BANK. Even he, a right-wing activist for decades, was astonished at this.

My reply was, “They’re living in 1984 over there, man.”
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Right after the Convention, Griffin made the ultimate sacrifice: He actually READ my book, Why Johnny Can’t Think: America’s Professor-Priesthood cover to cover. He LOVED it. It is every bit as descriptive of the leftist professor tyranny of Britain as it is of the one in America.

And much of the humor in it is exactly the kind an Englishman would appreciate. It would cause a LOT of trouble over there. That is just the sort of thing this kind of government persecution is meant to stop.

Nick is ordering a couple of cases of the book for BNP distribution. He has plenty of serious matters to deal with, but finds my book important enough to add that to his plate. No matter whether they will soon be convicted or not, the British tyranny has crippled the BNP for some time.

I am proud to stand with men like Tyndall and Griffin. You will remember that when the head of the Canadian Free Speech Movement was caught with copies of my book at the Canadian border, the books were seized.

I am not in the same league as people like Tyndall and Griffin, but I am very proud to be on their side. My reason for writing the book and working to get it out there, is to try and stop the Inquisition of Political Correctness before it goes as far as it has in Britain.

Maybe we can keep some of our best men from having to face jail time for standing up for us.

7/2/05 Insider Letter

(Reprinted to Blog from email list of 7/2/05)

*** Bob’s Insider’s Message ***

This week’s WOL is about the arrest of British National Party leaders in Britain. They could not have been arrested in America.

I know the men that were arrested. All this is explained in this week’s WOL.

Right now, every European leader feels it is his duty to attack the United States because we have a death penalty. They refuse to send even people who have committed cold-blooded murder back to the United States for punishment.

But there is one gigantic difference. We may complain about their refusing to extradite criminals, but we never criticize their own abuses of the most basic rights.

One reason the political left has been so successful is because it recognizes no borders. When the local governments moved against Communists in Argentina or in Nicaragua, the entire American left began making movies about it, defending their fellow leftists.

So when Nick Griffin and John Tyndall are arrested for “inciting to violence” under Britain’s draconian anti-hate laws — though no one can name any violence they incited — the American right stays totally silent.

I look at far right-wing sites in America, and all I see is that they are still trying to sell the same old books by dead men they have been trying to sell for fifty years. On the respectable right, they do what respectable conservatives get paid for doing, ignoring the whole thing.

And the rest? They are bitching about Iraq and sending each other e-mails about how Bush is not a nice man.

You can’t push a string. The whole right is limp and lives in the past or is obsessed with the latest news.

Everything important goes on right under their noses and they don’t notice it at all.

I am getting frantic e-mails about how France and the Netherlands rejected the new European Constitution. But it never occurs to any of them that we might harness the power of Europeans who are challenging the powers that be.

If the rejection of the European Constitution is important, why aren’t we in on it?

Because we are busy pushing books by dead men and bitching about Bush.

If Europe is worth telling me about, it is worth thinking about.

If Europe’s rejection of the European Constitution is worth frantic e-mails, then it is worth our getting in on this international rebellion against our common enemies.

But if you want to get in on it, you have to START somewhere. A great way to start would be to show a little interest in the tyranny of the European Thought Police.

Let’s take a little time off from spreading the astonishing word that Bush is not a nice man and trying to sell old books by dead people. Let’s spend a little time encouraging the BNP leaders who are under assault. Let’s take a few minutes out from telling each other how bad Bush is to send some outraged letters to the British Embassy and some letters of support to the BNP.

What I am describing is happening right now. You will have another Media Event to get obsessed with next week.

And the dead guys who wrote all those books can wait.
