Following the Upward Path

by Dr. William L. Pierce LAST MONTH we received the first part of the answer we have been seeking. It did not seem to tell us much, but in reality it contained the essence of everything else we will learn. Let us think about it for a moment before we go on. What we are seeking to discover is man’s purpose, both individually and collectively. Throughout a billion years of evolution the answer to our question has slowly taken shape and has been written by God on our souls, just as a different answer to an analogous question has been formed in the deepest part of the being of every living creature — and the non-living as well. (That is, . . .

What Are They Doing to Our World?

Environmental quality, resources threatened by failing economy by Dr. William L. Pierce DURING 1981 the real spendable earnings of the average American wage earner fell another 3.3 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington announced on January 22.

(In Anticipations, he held that the less advanced races, those “swarms of black, and brown, and dirty-white, and yellow people,” who believe the world to be a charity institution, “will have to go.”) But this idea seems to have been washed away by the rising tide of color and by the present, unreasoning insistence that all men are somehow “equal.” However, a brief look at the Huxley family shows us there is more truth than poetry in the old saying.

Man and Technology

An albatross chick found on the beach of Midway Atoll that never grew to adulthood. Its parents accidentally fed it bits of plastic from the Pacific Ocean, and essentially choked it to death. by Dr. William L. Pierce TECHNOLOGY has come somewhat into bad odor among many of today’s young people. Sensitive souls who find themselves out of tune with the gaudy, gimmicky, and artificial world of 20th-century America often place the blame for this dissonance on the technology which has made all the gimmicks possible. This attitude is revealed, for example, by the pejorative use of the term “plastic.” DDT and Big Brother Hostility toward technology also often finds expression among those genuinely and deeply concerned about wildlife . . .
