THIS WEEK in our audio biography of William Pierce (pictured), read by Miss Vanessa Neubauer, we present author Robert S. Griffin’s exploration of Dr. Pierce’s spiritual ideals, as expressed in his seminal speech Our Cause.
Alone among biographers of Dr. Pierce, Professor Griffin recognizes that William Pierce was a man motivated, not by the cartoonish “hate” that hostile and superficial writers ascribe to him, but by a deep connection to what he saw as the ages-old wisdom imbued in our race-soul — and, indeed, in the Universe itself. How does such a spiritual outlook lead to what many perceive as Pierce’s “racism”? How can the two be compatible at all? You’re about to find out.
Today we rejoin Vanessa Neubauer in her reading of this week’s installment, chapter 13, of Professor Robert S. Griffin’s masterful biography of Dr. William Luther Pierce, The Fame of a Dead Man’s Deeds.
How did Dr. Pierce, an American scientist and academic, come to found the most influential racial-nationalist organization in America? What were his goals? To what extent did he succeed? Listen in to this fascinating intellectual journey by pressing the play button above (or at the end of this article).
This audio book will be published in weekly chapter installments on The American Mercury and will be available from the Mercury as a full-length audio book when the series is completed.
