Might is Right
Never heard of this book before. Only read it because the psycho who shot a bunch of people at the Gilroy Garlic Festival recommended it. Not that I’m in the habit of taking advice from psychos, but the news media made such a big deal of it being “white supremacist” literature, I thought I’d see if they were full of crap or not.
The psycho wrote on social media:
“Read Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard. Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hordes of mestizos and Silicon Valley white tw**s?”
Hmm, that’s odd. The shooter seems to dislike “Silicon Valley white tw**ts” So how can that possibly make him a ‘white supremacist?’ Especially since he was an Italian/Iranian. And how could the book ‘Might is Right’ be a white supremacist book if it justifies the killing of white people at a garlic festival to prevent making room for white tw**ts?
That doesn’t make any sense.

After reading the book, the Gilroy shooting still doesn’t make any sense, but the book sort of does. It’s main premise is that morality and ‘rights’ are social constructs, and that they are constructed to enact control over the weak by the strong, and that the strong rule because they use force, not morality.
“Inferior organisms succumb and perish or are enslaved. Superior organisms survive, propagate, and possess.” — DARWIN.
There’s a bunch more, but that’s the basic point. And though I don’t like that point, its not wrong, that is to say, not factually incorrect.
This principle of force can be enacted by any race or creed, and has been throughout history, so the concept is not specifically ‘white supremacist.’
However the author is a European, and so he does advocate for the use of force by Europeans, particularly led by a strong and ruthless leader. And I would be very surprised if a certain Austrian Corporal was not inspired by this book. For example:
Here, then, is opportunity on a colossal scale. Here is the goal of Cæsars, Nebuchadnezzars and Napoleons in the days that are coming.
All is ready and prepared for them, even as in olden times. Cæsar carried off the treasures of Egypt, Greece, Gaul and Rome. Napoleon looted the money vaults of Venice, Vienna, Madrid, Berlin and Moscow. London only escaped him.
Nebuchadnezzar plundered the Temple of Zion, where the Jews kept all their deposits and drank his beer and wine out of Jehovah’s pots of gold.
Napoleon, Cæsar, Nebuchadnezzar! There were three great men, were they not? And in this their greatness consisted — they seized their opportunities.
So is it a white supremacist book?
Yeah, I guess so. But I fail to see how it can justify or explain what that dipshit in Gilroy did.
