William Pierce (1933-2002; pictured) saw more deeply into the nature of life — and farther into the future — than any other thinker of modern times. Here we present extracts of American Dissident Voices broadcasts honoring his life and work.

WILLIAM PIERCE changed my life. And I predict that his ideas will change the lives of millions of men and women of our race in the years to come.
Today, I want to give you two things: An impression of the spirit of the man, and his own deepest thoughts as teacher and mentor and maker of the future.
A friend of mine said of Dr. Pierce:
Simply put, William Pierce was a prophet. He saw the world as it really is and saw our people’s plight in realistic terms; why our folk have become a fallen people — and who is responsible. But Dr. Pierce’s understanding of what is in danger of being lost was only part of the vision he had. Above the bleak realities of our ever-darkening world, William Pierce had a much higher vision of what our race could be. He realized that — if led by the best among us — there is no obstacle we can not overcome, no battle we cannot win, no mystery we can not solve, and no feat we cannot accomplish. With his razor sharp insight, Dr. Pierce clearly saw what a magnificent and beautiful future could be ours if we were once again free to determine our own destiny.
William Pierce was a tall, rangy, powerful man, more physically fit at nearly seventy than he had been at fifty. It was in his fifties that he took on the tasks of an almost pioneer-style existence in his mountain aerie — which we simply called The Land — the beauty of which was one of his greatest inspirations and where now, once again, an intentional White community is rising again, just as he intended.

TODAY I am going to devote this program to the ideas of a man whose vision was the precursor and inspiration for Dr. William Pierce’s Cosmotheism — George Bernard Shaw.
Shaw (pictured), like many geniuses such as Ezra Pound, can sometimes appear confounding and contradictory. Shaw had his “GBS” persona and he did use satire, even laughing at his own positions through the characters in his plays at times. That’s the kind of thing you do when you have a 200 IQ — and, as Shaw quipped, when you are missing the phrenologists’ “bump of veneration.” With evident exasperation at the slow progress of human and social evolution, he endorsed any dictator in sight — “men who get things done” — as preferable to damnable democracy. He took public positions that were designedly shocking, and it’s easy to use the more extreme among these to attack him, as Crazy Glenn Beck and the other leaders of Conservakin have done.
But Shaw’s position on the primacy of the Life Force and improving the quality of human beings was a deeply serious one.
As a young man, he was an atheist. He later said he needed that stage in order to clear his mind of childish and obviously untrue myths. But in his mature years, Shaw openly espoused a religion — he playfully called it “Shawianity” — in which he posited that God is a work in progress: something yet to come, something that is even now evolving. He said that what he called the Life Force was trying to make man more and more godlike, and that this was the real meaning behind biological evolution.

WHAT IS A SIN? Webster says a sin is “a transgression against divine law.” Most churches in this country would define any breach of the Old Testament’s Ten Commandments as a sin, including the commandment that tells us to recognize the Hebrew tribal god, Yahweh, as the only god. This makes, by definition, every single one of our ancestors — from 100,000 years ago to just 1700 years ago — into unrepentant, irredeemable “sinners.”
THE PERSONAL CONDUCT of those who strive to follow the One Path is based on three foundations: Knowledge, Discipline, and Service.
First comes knowledge — an understanding of the nature of man, of his relationship to the Whole, and of his purpose. Then must come action based on that understanding; we must put our knowledge to work. We must let it direct us in our daily lives, so that we live in accord with our ordained purpose, so that we serve the ends intended for us by the Creator.
Knowledge is our guide, and service is our object, but discipline gives us the indispensable means. Discipline allows us to actualize the potential strength which our knowledge gives us. Without discipline, our knowledge will remain sterile, our actions weak and ineffectual.
