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.
WE LIVE IN a world in which many people have a dark sense of foreboding. Particularly in Western European countries where we have experienced better times within living memory, there is a feeling that many facets of our lives are deteriorating and have been relentlessly deteriorating for several decades at least.
In material terms we appear to be better off than ever before and yet the material benefits themselves do not seem to adequately compensate for less welcome changes and the sense that somehow our civilisation is in decay. Also the greater awareness of environmental and demographic factors means that we are conscious of the fact that we in the West are ‘living beyond our means’ and beyond the means of our planet to sustain indefinitely. We are told that mankind is already consuming natural resources at a rate faster than our planet can renew them and therefore there exists a sense of guilt in one’s enjoyment of our apparently greater material wealth.

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.

EACH OF US has only a few years to live. At our conception, we awaken from a sleep that has lasted for millions of centuries. We walk this Earth for a few paltry years. We are nurtured by parents and family. We receive love. If we prove strong enough, we give love. If we do right, we find a mate, overcome whatever obstacles there may be, and leave descendants to carry on when we are gone. And we are gone soon enough — a handful of decades if we are lucky, and that is all. Then we sleep again, for billions of years, perhaps for infinity — except for that part of us that lives on in our descendants and in our kin.
And in that brief moment of waking life, bounded on both sides by what Raymond Chandler called “the big sleep,” we are faced with choices, many choices. What should we do with this, our moment on Earth? What should we avoid doing? What behavior, as social beings, should we reward? What behavior should we punish? These are questions of morality, of what is right and what is wrong.
