I ran into an old Movement comrade whom I had not seen in a while.
“How’s the NEW ORDER doing?” he asked me.
“Progress is slow, but we’re in it for the long haul,” I replied.
Indeed, one thing that sets the NEW ORDER apart from most other racialist formations is its realistic sense of perspective regarding the length of time that will elapse before we can put our ideas into effect on a large scale.
While some overly optimistic racialists imagine that the decline of our Race and nation can be reversed in short order, the NEW ORDER is under no such delusion. There is no quick fix and no magic bullet, and there will be no sudden turnaround. When we consider the racial struggle to come, we should think in terms decades and generations, not in terms of news cycles, election cycles or years. And we should plan accordingly.

In the late 1970s, Matt Koehl was the commander of the National Socialist White People’s Party. He had taken over party leadership after the assassination of George Lincoln Rockwell a decade earlier. He had achieved considerable success in building up the NSWPP as a mass-oriented political formation. But at some point – I do not know exactly when – he had a revelation. He came to realize that American Whites (then over 80 percent of the population) were inevitably going to slide to minority status. The demographic trends were such that at some point in the mid-21st the White people of America would be outnumbered in their own country. There was nothing that he or anyone else could do about it.
This farsighted realization was a key factor in his decision to dissolve the NSWPP. He knew that any racialist political party or political strategy that was predicated on Whites being a majority in the US was doomed to failure. Instead, he reorganized the party as vanguard formation – the NEW ORDER – which would plan for the day when American Whites would be truly besieged.
For this was another insight that Koehl had: that falling to minority status would not be the end of the racial struggle for our people, but only its beginning.

It saddened me, in a way, to see the naïve enthusiasm with which many well-meaning Movement comrades embraced the candidacy of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump’s bluster and bravado, with all his tough talk about immigration and political correctness, allowed many in the racial movement to believe that he was the great White hope for whom they had been waiting.
Now, a mere nine months into his presidency, these same people are experiencing “voter’s regret.” Trump, they now realize, was not who he presented himself to be.
But even if he had been the secret White Nationalist many had hoped for, he would have been unable to reverse the decline of America and the West.
For there can be no reversal, at least not in the way that many envision. There will be no restoration of the American constitutional republic, nor of the glories of Western civilization. The forces pulling us down have caused us to reach such societal velocity that a complete collapse of the West unavoidable. And it is not just the numerical decline of the White population that is leading to this collapse, but also its cultural decline, its social decline, and its decline in fundamental values.
But the somber acceptance of the end of the West should not be a cause for despair or demoralization, for the survival of our civilization is not what matters most, but rather our survival as a race. We can always erect new buildings, sculpt new statues, compose new music, paint new masterpieces and write new poems and novels. But once our bloodline has disappeared, it will be gone forever.
These realizations condition the strategy of the NEW ORDER in planning for the future. For example, we are constantly advised that we will never get a majority of White people to support us until we abandon the Swastika, stop praising Adolf Hitler, and get rid of the term “National Socialism.” But we are not trying to recruit a majority of ordinary Whites into our organization, but rather a key minority of extraordinary Aryans.
As Adolf Hitler himself writes in Mein Kampf, “World history is made by minorities, when this numerical minority embodies a majority of will and determination” (Volume II, Chapter 2, p. 399 Manheim translation).
These extraordinary types are those men and women who have the mental acuity, the spiritual strength and the moral courage to throw off the sick values of the sick society that is dragging our race to its destruction. In common parlance, these are the ones who are “woke” or who have been “red-pilled.” And by definition, this racial elite will not be put off by Adolf Hitler or the Swastika.
We are not trying to seize the reins of government, or win a majority of votes in some rigged democratic popularity contest. Rather, we are digging in for a protracted struggle for our survival as a people. We pace ourselves accordingly, for this struggle is a marathon race, not a sprint.
We are not hermits. We pay attention to the world around us. We actively strive to build a functioning National Socialist community within American society. We spread our message to our racial brothers and sisters outside the Movement and we recruit new cadres into our ranks and train them.
But we are not deluded into believing that there is a short-term solution to the enormous, deep rooted problems that confront our Race. We are more pragmatic than that.
We are in it for the long haul.
– Martin Kerr, NEW ORDER Chief of Staff
