I am not a white supremacist, nor do I espouse Christian Identity.
As I wrote in my statement of August 2005
I briefly attended a Christian Identity church when I was seventeen years old. Identity Christians believe that the peoples of Northern Europe are the direct descendents of the ten lost tribes of Israel. As God's "chosen people," they believe their racial characteristics have made them superior to non-white races.
I didn't believe that doctrine twenty-five years ago. I don't believe that doctrine today. And I defy anyone to show me where in my writings I have advocated Christian Identity or white supremacy. Some will say that my brief association with Identity Christians suffices to prove me a "racist".
Others will say that my criticizing Affirmative Action and other racist policies is tantamount to "racism". Combating such beliefs is difficult because they are ultimately irrational and bigoted. To convince me that I hold the opinions of everyone with whom I have ever associated, you must first prove that everyone holds the opinions of everyone with whom they have ever associated.
Beliefs are indicated by current actions, not by past associations.
To prove to me the legitimacy of Affirmative Action, "hate crimes" laws, and other racial policies that favor non-whites, you must first show me why discriminating against non-whites fifty years ago was wrong, but discriminating against whites today is right.
Religiously, I am a traditional Catholic. Philosophically, I am an Idealist. Thus, I do not accept Materialism; do not believe that biology is destiny; do not believe any one race is superior to any other. But I do believe that some ideas are superior to others. And as culture is a web of living ideas, I believe some cultures are superior to others.
I believe that Western Christian culture is superior to all other cultures. And I believe in cultural homogeneity -- the keeping of one set of cultural values at the helm of society's social and political life. Here is wisdom: all history teaches that pursuing a policy of cultural diversity leads to division, oppression, violence, and eventually, to civil war. Thus, I reject all notions of "multiculturalism".
But I am not a totalitarian. I don't believe that any one human authority should rule the world. I believe in Free Will, in individual and group integrity, in private property, and in national sovereignty. I believe that there are limits to diversity in any society. Those limits are reached when cultural diversity seriously threatens social order.
Subject to the public good, I believe that you, as a property owner, have a right to exclude anyone from your property. You have a right to set rules for those people you do allow onto your property. And for those wanting a permanent home on your property, I believe you have a right to insist that they adopt your value system. Very simple stuff.
A nation is a people's property. To maintain social order and ensure cultural continuity, I believe that a nation has a right to make rules for assimilation, and it has a right to exclude those who refuse assimilation. Take Israel for example: at the heart of the Arab-Israeli conflict is the so-called "right of return".
During the 1948 war, hundreds of thousands of Arabs left Israel. Some the Israelis drove out; the rest left voluntarily. The descendents of those Arabs have increased dramatically since 1948. Now they want the "right to return" to Israel. They want to reclaim their lands and to become "Israeli citizens". If Israel allows this, Jews will eventually become a minority in their own country, and Israel will cease to exist as a Jewish state.
So I believe that Israel has a right to refuse the "right of return," to restrict non-Jewish immigration, to ensure that Israel remains a Jewish state. America should learn from Israel's experience in dealing with "multiculturalism".
