"The Ethnostate," The Beyondist vol. 1
No. 1 November 1993 p. 2.
Wilmot Robertson's The Ethnostate, offers a very
timely supplement to the argument of the Beyondist. That is that
a better organization of government would result if instead of large
pluralistic states, like the former U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A., we
had smaller groups more intensely uniform. The specifically racial
uniformity which he argues for is not essential to Beyondism, but
the organization of mankind in many smaller groups is.
The whole book is a repetition, with different
illustrations of the greater respect for law, and the greater
harmony of life for everyone, that occurs with a smaller more
uniform group. Perhaps we have some statistical support for this
in the finding that the number of political assassinations correlates
positively with the size of the group. (See "How Good is Your
As for similarity of genetic and cultural make
up bringing all the advantages that Robertson relates we have
yet no directly scientific psychometric evidence. The only evidence
on can cites is that on survival of marriages. The difference
of break up and stable marriages is directly related to the measured
similarity of the spouses (Cattell & Nesselroade, 1967). Marriage
is a group of only two, but we can extrapolate to larger groups
in this respect.
In any case the wide range of instances that
Robertson brings to bear seems convincing to the careful reader.
The practicality of forming such groups is another matter. The
average size of an American state is optimum, but a continued
extension of states' rights seems unlikely. Yet ethnostates cooperatively
united in defense and certain broad common laws. Massachusetts,
Illinois and Oregon are sufficiently different in spirit to give
any citizen by migration the values that he values.
The Enthnostate is a book that every seriously
thoughtful citizen should read and ponder upon.

"If, thanks to some beneficial mutation, man
has the ability and the will to make some beneficial quantum jump
into a higher evolutionary grade, the question arises: From what
ethnic group will he emerge? Everyone, of course, will root for
his home team. Members of the Northern European branch of the
white race, who have been top dogs until recently, should make
every effort to keep their group in the pink of mental and physical
condition if they are not going to loose out permanently to the
Japanese or members of some other Mongoloid race. As with gifted
children who are singled out and assigned to advanced classes,
so the more gifted members of every race should be provided with
whatever is needed to help fulfill their individual and collective
potential. It goes without saying that these special students
should not have their education slowed by being forced to move
at the pace of less capable and less astute learners. Gifted pupils
often become so bored at the repetitive lessons required by the
slow student that they may develop lifelong antipathy to education.
At the same time, slow learners are made tragically aware of their
own deficiencies by being compelled to compete with bright pupils.
Rather than continue this hopelessly unequal battle, they drop
When we speak of intelligence we mean more than
verbal acumen and quick thinking. We are also speaking of such
important character traits as a fine sense of moral responsibility,
/p. 9/ the ability to concentrate, and a serious attitude towards
life. The absence of these and similar traits in a genius with
an IQ of 180 could make him more of a menace than a book to mankind.
It follows that the population group best qualified to produce
the ‹bermensch [italic in original] will need much more than a
high genetic quotient of intelligence."
