THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

 

Current issue: August 27, 2018

In some parts of the South, the White community merely intends to prevail—that is all. .…

The central question . . . is whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally, in areas in which it does not predominate numerically? The sobering answer is Yes—the White community is so entitled because, for the time being, it is the advanced race. .…

 [S]ometimes the numerical [white] minority cannot prevail except by violence: then it must determine whether the prevalence of its will is worth the terrible price of violence.

 —August 25, 1957: Excerpts from an editorial in National Review by William F. Buckley
