The A3P masthead prominently features Charles Lindbergh and his airplane “The Spirit of St. Louis”. The world knows this 20th Century hero and aviation pioneer for his solo flight across the Atlantic, We, however, know and admire him for so much more. He sacrificed much of his life and a portion of his worldwide esteem to promote the interests of the Northern European peoples.
Many of you have read his famous article published in the November 1939 Reader’s Digest entitled Aviation, Geography and Race. Fair-minded and independent thinking people of the time found the article to be insightful, while others, influenced by wayward forces, read it with opprobrium. At the time, it generated much debate, but in the end countervailing viewpoints held sway. Now today, more than ever, the prescient content of that article speaks to us with urgency.
In that article, Lindbergh wrote this about the impending Second World War: “We, the heirs of European culture, are on the verge of a disastrous war, a war within our own family of nations, a war which will reduce the strength and destroy the treasures of the White race, a war which may even lead to the end of our civilization… It is our turn to guard our heritage from Mongol and Persian and Moor, before we become engulfed in a limitless foreign sea. Our civilization depends on a united strength among ourselves.”
In that same article, Lindbergh wrote this question that only we can answer today: “A great industrial nation may conquer the world in the span of a single life, but its Achilles’ heel is time. Its children, what of them? The second and third generations, of what numbers and stuff will they be?”
We are the second and third generation from World War Two. We are the children of the 11th hour. As Lindbergh opined, the seeds sown during the last great conflict may indeed “lead to the end of our civilization”–unless we act now. Those of you who are aware of our fate, and care for our heritage, must sound the alarm and rally your neighbors.
We want each of us to join together to move for change. Please act independently of headquarters and set up regular A3P meetings. Organize, meet and mobilize. And keep us informed of your progress.
