Happy New Year! I should be in bed, but I really want to catch up on some of my correspondence. It is indeed exciting to delve into the history of invention and the transmission or extinction of such. The iron-making amongst certain Black tribes in Africa is unique to the Black race, for they seem never to have developed nor maintained anything else. In the tribal trustlands where I was stationed, water barrels were put on large treeforks, which were chained to oxen and dragged from the streams or waterholes to the kraals. The Blacks neither built nor bought wheeled carts for the purpose. Over time, these forked trees would dig ditches from high ground to watercourse and large erosion gulleys or dongas would contribute to the desertification of the agricultural areas. Over-logging, over-grazing and over-population are rapidly enlarging the deserts of Africa, just as in China.

As I recall from readings, Black iron-making came from the north, from contact with the Arabs. It is also likely that the Arabs traded iron for other items. The parts of Africa which showed the most developed metal artifacts are those parts heavily settled and influenced by Arabs. In Black parts of the continent, such artifacts are virtually nil. The Blacks are aware of the value of metals, for they stole the first telegraph wire to make those brass or copper necklaces and other items of adornment, just as they steal fencewire to make snares for game. They use, but they do not make, and Blacks never seem to invent, according to my studies and firsthand experience with Blacks in Central Africa.

The triangular sail has long been used by Europeans, and the Vikings knew how to tack into the wind with their rectangular sails. Apparently, the Spanish explorers of the west coast of North America did not know how to tack, so they could only explore that coastline by sailing south. The English knew how to tack into the wind, and on Drake's northward voyage up the coast of California, he discovered San Francisco Bay, which he announced as the western outlet for The Northwest Passage, which held thoughtfully claimed for England! When the Spaniards heard of that, they exerted themselves mightily to build a chain of forts and missions up the coast. Drake's little boast cost them plenty! If you look over the trade routes before steam propulsion, you will be struck as I was by their long, indirect distances. That is because sailing ships do their best speed running with the wind. The lateen sails require less labor to set than do multiple rectangular sails, but they do not catch as much wind as the square ones do when running. You will note that the latest yachts use "balloon sails" in addition to jib rigged sails when running in races, with the wind behind them. Surface area is important in calculating sail efficiency.

The Germans built many wind-driven ships between World War I and World War II, to save the costs of fuel. Most of the "tall ships" were stolen from Germany. At the outbreak of war, they were seized by Allied powers when found in an Allied port. The Germans, who are members of the White race, not "the German race", invented an interesting "rotor ship", which had huge funnels fore and aft. Apparently, the propulsion system used the Bernoulli principle to take wind from any direction, which caused big propellers to turn, which drove propellers under water. I have seen a prototype in an old National Geographic Magazine.

Whites usually invent something better to solve a problem, as you may know in Canada. The aboriginal Asians introduced the Whites to the snowshoe, which was soon superseded by the more efficient White invention, the ski. Kayaks and canoes were improved greatly once the White man decided to use them.

Whites can also copy other races' inventions, as Amundsen did when he beat Scott to the South Pole, using Eskimo garb, food and dogsleds. Nowadays, one could reach the South Pole in a jiffy, using the White man's skidoos and airdropped supplies. It kind of takes the 'fun' out of eating one's dogs, Eskimo-style, on the return trip, as Amundsen's men did, according to plan.

If the 3 races and mongrel mixtures all were to have equal civilizations, I would not be a racist. If gravity did not exist, we could all flap our arms and fly around, too. Whether we like it or not, gravity and race do determine the creation, preservation and/or destruction of civilizations. Some race-mixing may allow a bio-cultural entity known as civilization to exist, just as the adulteration of milk with a wee bit of vinegar might still be drinkable, but, as you pointed out in your book on "The Importance of Race in Civilization", adulteration does not contribute any positive value to a civilization. On the contrary!

The mixture of White and Black culture in Africa is an objective disaster, if one views overpopulation, starvation and war a disaster. White productivity enabled the Black population to exceed its own productive and distributive capabilities far beyond the optimum. In Zimbabwe, for instance, the pre-White Black population was around 300,000. That was in the 1890s. In 1980, the country was handed over to the Black Marxist misrulers. It had all the productive infrastructure along with developed sources of raw materials. In other words, Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe was practically self-sufficient in all 3 sectors of industry: primary (raw materials), secondary (manufacturing), and tertiary (services). Not only was the country, under White rule, self-sufficient, it exported surpluses, including food, to other parts of the world, including Black African states. Food production is the primary indicator of a people's competence or incompetence, because (whether we like it or not), one cannot live if one does not eat. The White farmers of Africa produced surpluses, which caused the Black population explosion. The Blacks, with their peculiar 'logic' think that the last Whites must be put out of the farming business so Blacks can occupy the land. Wherever this has happened, food production ceases and the Black state must import its staple foods, usually with 'foreign aid'.

If one can see disaster in the mixture of civilizations, then one can also see disaster in the mixture of Black people with White people. One can readily see what I mean amongst the "Coloureds" of Africa and the darkies of the Caribbean islands. Eurasian mixtures are equally disastrous, for I have become quite well acquainted with blond, blue-eyed mestizos who are receiving ZOG handouts in proportion to their Indian tribal blood, down to the 32°! These people are the chief ingredient of what we call "White trash". I have experienced the same phenomenon in Europe, amongst the semi-asiatic Finns and Hungarians, not to mention the Ukrainians et al. With race-mixing, a little dab'll undo ya. Certainly, Hitler's love for the British contributed to his undoing, and German mistreatment of the Russians and other Slavs, drove them into the arms of the jew bolsheviks unnecessarily, but this mistreatment may have been exaggerated by Allied propaganda. I have the British Foreign Office evaluation of Polish sympathies toward the Germans in 1943, after the discovery of the murdered Polish officers at Katyn. It reports that patriotic Poles were tending toward an alliance with Germany to stave off a Red invasion. The British attempted to thwart this alliance by means of lies about the German "extermination" of Poles. One must not forget that Hitler had non-Aryan SS units, who were deemed fellow Nationalists of their own peoples.

Richard Butler is, apparently, a "true-jew" who believes in "Israel Identity", "British Israel" or "Christian Identity". This cult was used by British propagandists around World War One, to enlist their "fellow Israelites", the Anglo-Saxons, against "the tribe of Judah" (the Germans), here in North America. They support all sorts of embarrassing malarkey, such as the Danes being "the tribe of Dan" and the Red Sea being "the Sea of Reeds", &c. I merely point out that the jew-book was written in Semitic languages and that Whites speak Indo-European languages. The Angles and Saxons who left Germany somehow changed their tribe by crossing 22 miles of salt water, thereby leaving the remaining Angles and Saxons to become "Judeans". I crossed lots of saltwater to go to Hong Kong, so I must be a Chinaman, according to that 'logic'. There were, in the B.C. era, White Greeks and Egyptians, for the mummies prove that, as well as the ancient references to Greeks in The Illiad. One can visit the Afro-Asiatic populations of Greece and Egypt to evaluate the status of their current "civilizations". To say that presentday Greeks and Egyptians are "Aryan" is to say that the present denizens of Harlem in New York are "Dutch".

My own ancestors come from a very small region: the Orkneys and the Isle of Lewis with Harris. That makes us "offshore Scots", with some Norwegian admixture. I learned more about British ethnicity while in Rhodesia than I learned during my short stay in London. As I came from the airport into Salisbury, now Harare, I heard bagpipes! That is where I met Ulstermen (Scots), Irishmen, Geordies, Welsh, English and Scots. I knew some people from Hull, where they speak a local dialect which only the Danish fishermen can understand, who have used the port for centuries. I know one fellow whose Irish-English characteristics stand out as much as my Scottish-Norwegian ones. The differences amongst these clear-cut ethnic characteristics are formidable, almost as much as are differences between the 3 races.

As I see it, you are attempting to focus people's attention upon principle, rather than being and identity. My approach is to teach people about their identity as a race, in distinction to the other races, since one knows what is bad or good for him, when he knows who he is. The Chinese know who they are and who they will be, so they maintain continuity and direction. Whites can do the same, once they decide on who they really are. I know who I am through comparison to other races and mongrels thereof, but I hope that other Whites can learn their identity without spending so many years amongst non-Whites.

"Race" in North America is being used against Whites, in terms of The Genocide Convention and "Affirmative Action" laws. If you were to rely on the works of "Ashley Montagu" (Israel Ehrenberg), you could do our race a favor by 'proving' these anti-White laws are nonsense, because "race does not exist", according to expert Ehrenberg.
