Oculus maintains three basic truths:
- White people exist.
- White people have a right to exist.
- White people have a right to exist as white people.
This is a book of love: love of one’s own, not hatred of the other. It is intended to bring hope, not to fuel a sense of hopelessness. It is meant to bring people together, not to drive them apart . . .
The aim of this book is simply this: to help people to see the truth — not ideological truth, not political truth, but the simple truth of everyday life. Its purpose is to help people peer through the veil of unreality which has been imposed upon them, and to admit that what they experience in the real world every day of the week is true.Ocolus does not target people of other races and cultures with hatred and abhorrence. While recognizing differences and dysfunctions in every race, he simply seeks to unite white people in a different nationalism from U S A rah rah toward recognition of white people's common unity of language, ancestry, likeness, and culture.
Readers familiar with the race realism of John Derbyshire, Jared Taylor, and Paul Kersey (along with Francis Porretto and myself here at Liberty's Torch) will find the expository chapters of the book covering familiar ground of how white people came to be in such an odd fix in the country they founded, in fact, invented.
Sections IV, V, VI offer fascinating speculation of the future and conclusions regarding the white race in America. The author is more sanguine than I am about the possibility of the various races and ethnicities co-existing in the future through orderly segregation, for example. But his solution, for decent and Christian people, is the one to be wished for, certainly.
Those who enjoyed my past series here, The Next American Revolution . . . will be stillborn, should be pleased to read Oculus' thoughts and ideas in the later chapters.
The Oculus Report is a blog the author regularly posted at until recently when he retired from it based on a number of reasons, particularly that of repeating himself. The blog is still available, though, to be perused.
As far as I'm concerned, Robert Oculus III is a man after my own heart. His energies are based on good will and positive action with Christian feeling and respect for all human beings. I highly recommend The White Book.
He closes the volume with a poem by Rudyard Kipling, brilliant man and poet, who puts into words something I've been trying to express for some time:
The Stranger within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk—
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
But not the soul behind.
The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wonted to,
They are used to the lies I tell;
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy or sell.
The Stranger within my gates,
He may be evil or good,
But I cannot tell what powers control—
What reasons sway his mood;
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
Shall repossess his blood.
The men of my own stock,
Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.
This was my father’s belief
And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf—
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.
