Quote of the Week: Lawrence Auster, “The Path to National Suicide”

Lawrence Auster

Lawrence Auster (1949-2013). American traditionalist essayist and commentator.

As we all know by now, racism, like witchcraft, is a difficult accusation to defend oneself against. The reason is that the word no longer has a defined meaning. I was first struck by this phenomenon several years ago when New York City’s closing of a hospital in Harlem, as part of an economy move, was ferociously denounced as ‘racist’ by black leaders. This was a new and startling use of a highly charged word that I had associated mainly with race hatred. ‘Racism’ now apparently meant anything that, in the view of black people, hurt their interests or offended them or, indeed, anything they did not approve of. In recent years, this limitless definition has come to include the entire structure of our predominantly white society, as well as all white people.
