In donning that uniform and taking to the streets, NN showed more courage and dedication than most people here ever will.


For me, this blog is far more an exercise in courage and dedication.

For when I took to the streets, no courage on my part was involved - in the sense of overcoming one's fear of violence. I've always been prepared for it, and always considered myself a threat to others, physically and intellectually, rather than they a threat to me. I will, however, accept the imputation of courage on behalf of those of my comrades who *were* afraid and who *weren't* prepared, and who nevertheless did what needed doing for the awakening to come.

But now that forty years of dedicated study are a part of me, and I am responsible for others than myself, I do not hold my life and health so lightly. Yet those who intelligently address the issues with which this blog is concerned *are* engaged in a display of courage and dedication, in my judgment of the hazards that lurk and the investment of work. So, ironically, I consider myself worthy of that assessment by virtue of *this* exposure of hard-core truth, rather than by virtue of the exploits of my youth.


  1. NN,

    It does require courage to don that reviled symbol and take to the streets where enemies are ready, willing, and able to physically or financially ruin you. The fact that you were not distressed by the prospect of street action would seem to indicate innate courage coupled with youthful naivete, but courage nonetheless.

    In terms of dedication, many of the brightest racialists I know are unwilling to work for the Cause in any way, shape, or form. They seem to think revolution happens in a vacuum, but I think we need people laying the groundwork by doing the inglorious but necessary daily work of folk-building. It is not easy to get people involved in these "hard daily tasks" (Mosley) and those who put in their time (as you did) should be commended for it.
