Nedan följer en oöversatt recension av den amerikanska originalutgåvan av The Nordish Quest (Det nordliga sökandet) hämtad ur Instauration vol. 14, nr. 10 september 1989. Instauration utgavs och skrevs till större delen av Wilmot Robertson, författare till The Dispossessed Majority som i hög grad inspirerade Richard McCulloch till att börja skriva på sin första bok.

from Instauration vol. 14, nr. 10, September 1989


Is it possible for a race to be loved to death? Richard McCulloch thinks so. The author of The Ideal and Destiny (reviewed in Instauration, March 1983) and Destiny of Angels (March 1987) believes that the several subraces of Northern Europe are in immediate danger of permanent genetic eclipse, not just because of their falling birthrate, but because of the attraction which other races feel for what he calls Nordish nations, neighborhoods and individual bodies. Whether the lethal motive is love, hate or, perhaps most often, an unstable mixture of the two, it adds up to genocide against Nordics, argues McCulloch.

The author does not care what opinion other races hold of his race… He would rather have other races hate, despise, scorn, revile and insult his race, but respect its vital interests and right to life, than have them love, adore and praise it but deny it the conditions of separation, independence and freedom from intermixture it needs to live… It is flattering when other races desire to be friends with his race, to live among it and intermix with it, but such flattery, if accepted, is fatal, and it is better to be without it and live. Such friends are as dangerous and destructive as the worst of enemies, and would love his race to death.

“Love” of the destructive kind is undeserving of the name. Others may “love” to be close to us only because they covet the good life which we have created and which our presence sustains. They would “love” to come even closer through intermarriage, because they covet certain physical (racially based) traits which the very act of intermarriage denies to posterity.

These are a few of the vital ideas which appear in Richard McCulloch’s third book, The Nordish Quest (Towncourt, 1989). The author begins by showing just how bad things have gotten for his people. He divides Homo sapiens into five subspecies, one of which, the Caucasoid or Europid, he further divides into 12 races, including, most prominently in Europe, the Mediterranid, the Alpine, the Dinaric (“predominant in the western Balkans [Dinaric Mountains] and northern Italy”), the Ladogan (common in Russia), and the Nordish, Nordian or Northern European race. He speaks of “Nordish” or “Nordian” rather than “Nordic” because the latter term, in the strict anthropological sense, embraces only a rather restricted group of people.

McCulloch counts about 530 million members of the Nordish subrace worldwide, or about 10% of the global population. Yet Nordians account for, at best, 0.5% of the babies now being born.

Within this broad Nordish or Nordian group, McCulloch distinguishes an “Inner Circle of Core or Central Subracial Types,” numbering 260 million, and an “Outer Circle of Periphery Subracial Types” (270 million). An abridged version of his outline appears below.

McCulloch explains:

Of the three central Nordish subraces, the Borrebys and Brunns tend to have somewhat larger heads, broader features and heavier body builds than the Nordics. In height they are essentially the same. Of American presidents in this century Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt and George Bush are good examples of the Nordic subrace, Theodore Roosevelt and Gerald Ford of the Borreby, and John Kennedy of the Brunn. Of all the Nordish types only the Palaeo-Atlantid is typically dark-eyed. The others are predominantly light-eyed (blue, gray, green or light-mixed), usually by a ratio of more than two to one. Light-mixed eyes (a mixture of blue and green) are particularly common in the Nordic race. The two Atlantic types are dark-haired. Among the other types hair color is variable, with the light and medium brown shades generally the most common among adults… Among adults the incidence of blond hair varies, from lows of 13-15% in the Walloon Borrebys and the Irish Brunns, to highs of 50-75% in the Hallstatt Nordics and Tronders of Norway and Sweden and the East Baltics of Finland… Red hair is common in the Brunn and Borreby stems (and in those of partial Brunn or Borreby derivation), minimal in the Nordic.

The nations of the Nordish world contain several different Nordish groupings: Sweden, for example, is roughly 75% Hallstatt Nordic, 10% Borreby (especially along the southwest coast), 5% Tronder, 5% Falish and 5% East Baltic (i.e., 100% Nordish, with 95% central and 5% peripheral types). Austria is 35% Noric, 25% Dinaric, 20% Alpine, 15% Keltic and 5% Hallstatt (i.e, 55% Nordic, with 20% central and 35% peripheral types). These figures, of course, do not reflect the waves of nonwhite and dark-white immigrants who have washed ashore in countries like Sweden since the 1950s. McCulloch’s estimates are a synthesis based on John R. Baker’s Race, Carleton S. Coon’s The Races of Europe and other sources.

While Europe is still home to most Nordians (people of Nordish racial background), they are more likely to be of the peripheral types:

McCulloch calculates a Nordish element of 141.4 million among America’s 248 million and 110 million among the Soviet Union’s 285 million. But 65% of American Nordians are central types (i.e., Nordic proper, Borreby or Brunn) against only 15% of Soviet Nordians. As for the peripherals, most of those in the U.S. are Atlantic types of British derivation, while most in the USSR are Neo-Danubians (Nordic-Ladogan).

Such numbers are extremely fragile, given the torrent of non-Nordian immigrants presently raining down on the Nordish homelands, and the consequent new mixtures of genes. McCulloch provides a sobering U.S. racial population table, the essentials of which are reproduced here:


The Racial Golden Rule

Racial anthropology and demography merely lay the foundation for McCulloch’s main message, which is ethical. The golden rule, which “can be traced to the origins of ethical thought in many different cultures, and can be regarded as the most basic rule governing social relationships between equals,” he says, now must be extended to races. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” – or, in the negative form, “do not do to others what you would not have them do to you” – is the basic message which Nordians must begin to deliver loudly and collectively to the blacks, browns, yellows and dark whites who threaten their existence.

As McCulloch insists repeatedly, the dogma of interracism, currently dominant worldwide has a far more destructive impact on Northern Europeans than on other racial groups. In theory, all groups are supposed to sacrifice their futures to the One Race ideal. In practice, huge population groups in places like East Asia, Central Africa, India and the Middle East remain today as pure as ever. Northern Europe, North America and Australia were likewise “protected racial environments” until very recently, but now are being invaded by unwanted racial aliens. McCulloch insists that we quit wasting precious time, seize the moral high ground and apply a new Racial Golden Rule to our present predicament:

The Racial Golden Rule is the application of the ethical Golden Rule to the interaction and relationships between different races. Racial rights and interests can be classified as vital or non-vital, primary or secondary, and legitimate or illegitimate… Legitimate rights and interests are those which do not conflict with, or violate, a greater right or interest than themselves. A right which conflicts with a right greater than itself is illegitimate.

Under the Racial Golden Rule, a non-vital right or interest of one race which conflicts with, or violates, a vital right or interest of another race is illegitimate…

[The Racial Golden Rule] is consistent with the so-called “Prime Directive” of the television series Star Trek, which prohibits interference with other peoples or cultures, including any attempt to give aid or advice, or otherwise influence their development, and respects their independence and their right to make their own choices and follow their own destiny.

How often we hear about a Black Agenda, a Jewish Agenda, an Hispanic Agenda. We also hear about “black issues” or “Asian-American issues.” When politicians and media commentators use these terms, they must be challenged again and again with the question: “What, then, might a ‘white issue’ be?” McCulloch provides a formidable ethical basis for such challenges:

The racial future of North America is of much greater importance to the interests of the Nordish race than to the interests of the non-Nordish races. It contains over 30% of the world Nordish population and over 40% of the central Nordish types. By contrast, is contains only 6% of the world Congoid population…, less than 3% of the non-Nordish Caucasoids and less than 0.3% of the Asian Mongoloids… For the other races in North America, their racial presence [there], is peripheral and only a minor and non-vital part of their total racial being. The Nordish race has much more at stake, and much more to lose, in North America than any other. For it alone, North America is not expendable, as its racial loss might well prove racially fatal. For it alone, the struggle for the future of North America is a decisive one.

Merely to speak of a white or Nordian agenda in the U.S. or Canada is to stir up visions of gas chambers and bayonetted babies thrown from rooftops. Yet, unless this moral blackmail can be ended, the destruction of our race is guaranteed. The decent rule of “live and let live” has been deliberately replaced with an anti-Nordian double standard of “live and let die”: “[A]ny resistance by Nordians to the genocide of their race, and support for the conditions it needs to live, is portrayed as leading to the genocide of other races...”


The Solution

“If the British could leave India,” McCulloch writes, “the Indians can leave Britain.”

If the Dutch could leave Indonesia, the Indonesians can leave the Netherlands. If the French could leave Algeria, the Algerians can leave France. If the Europeans could leave Africa and Asia, the Africans and Asians can leave Europe.

The situation in North America is more complex, because of the larger numbers involved and the longer periods of residence, especially in the case of blacks. Unusual circumstances like mixed marriages and interracial adoptions further complicate the picture. Yet there must be racial separation, if the Nordians are to have any future on this continent. Differential birthrates and the recessiveness of most Nordian racial traits guarantee our doom in advance unless separation in some form is achieved.*

[*For decades, sociologists prophesied the convergence of white and nonwhite birthrates in North America. Yet there is still no sign of the miracle occurring, as a true social scientist would have predicted. Now some sociologists have begun to admit, “Well, yes, the Hispanic immigrants (and the native blacks) will always have higher birthrates.”]

McCulloch recommends that the Nordian nation which must arise someday on the North American continent should not attempt to digest the large number of Mediterranean whites. This would work a hardship on many Sicilian Americans, for example, but the Racial Golden Rule dictates that a non-vital interest of a numerically small branch of the Mediterranean race must take second place to a vital interest of the Nordian race in one of its two great heartlands. Our “white ethnic” types of Alpine, Dinaric and Ladogan antecedants will tax the assimilative powers of America’s diminishing core racial group to the limit.

The urgency of McCulloch’s appeal for the implementation of the Racial Golden Rule cannot be exaggerated. At present, he estimates, about one in four American Nordians is totally lost to reproduction, while another 10 to 20% are mixing their genes with unassimilable races. Yet resistance is unthinkable until a solid ethical foundation has been laid. Until millions of our own people begin to grasp that the struggle for Nordish survival is infinitely more justified than Martin Luther King’s fight for the rights of blacks to drink from white water fountains, there is little we can do.

One small criticism: The Nordish Quest, which is loaded with the racial passion which characterizes McCulloch’s previous works, could have benefited from even more passion. Although McCulloch was called a “genius of racial passion” in Instauration’s review of Destiny of Angels, that unique emotional amperage could have been boosted still further. McCulloch provides a large portion of the moral ammunition which could potentially rescue our besieged breed, yet he needs to keep doubling and redoubling the ardor, the fury, the desperation, the intensity in his voice, on the page and, hopefully, someday off it as well. And dozens of others must repeat his arguments with the same moral zeal. That is how the Gandhis and Kings have set their peoples’ hearts ablaze. Nothing less can succeed for us.
