Introduction by Hon. Mr Justice J. F. Ludorf. This work applies G.M. Mes’s theory of racial evolutionary psychology as outlined in his earlier work Now-Men And Tomorrow-Men Why We Are Not Equal?, to explain the rise and fall of past civilizations.
The author explains how Western Civilization arose to its world-dominant position though superior technology, and the firearm in particular. The “medium-futured” European, with his gun in his hand saw the advantages of being the “master” and of taking the bounty.
However, Mes points out that the era of white overlordship is coming to an end.
“We, the White men, the hated ‘Palefaces’, have held the world in thrall for fifteen to twenty generations and we have become so used to it, that we cannot see what the rest of the world already knows for some time, namely, that our days are numbered. It is necessary that we open our eyes and look at what is happening around us.”
Mes describes what may happen if the medium-futured Europeans disappear completely—but in the first of two appendices, he outlines, with specific reference to South Africa, what needs to be done to avoid the extinction of Western Civilization.
The second appendix contains the full text of Chapter 12 of Nathanial Weyl’s ‘The Negro in American Civilization.”
About the author: Gerrit Marie Mes was a general and orthopedic surgeon who trained in the Netherlands and London, and lived in Krugersdorp, South Africa.
