CREATIVE CREDO No.24 THE WILL TO LIVE — THE UNDERLYING BASIS OF ALL LIFE

Instinctive in Each Creature. Nature does not for long keep any species on its payroll whose will to live falters. Inbred in each species is the will to survive, the will to live, the urge to reproduce and extend itself by perpetuating its own kind. True, in each generation of any species, there might be those individuals in whom this basic urge is weak or totally lacking. But Nature does not play games and tolerate such deviants for long. They are the end of their line, and their weakness will not be perpetuated.

Our Ancestors were Winners. I am proud to boast that of the millions of ancestors I have, each and every one of them without a single exception, not only had the strength and the aggressiveness to struggle to maturity, but every one of them reproduced offspring that was strong enough, healthy enough to also grow to maturity and again reproduce. This endless chain in my ancestry remains unbroken for millions of years. What a tremendous accomplishment!

You too can make that proud boast. Are you measuring up to the standards that your ancestors have firmly established over the millions of years of life on this planet? Millions of White young couples are not measuring up. Some of them are unable to reproduce. Many more have deliberately shunted aside Nature’s most basic urge — to extend and expand their own kind through their children.

Our Instincts Tampered. Why have these White couples shunted aside this most sacred and basic urge that was faithfully and immutably followed by 100% of their millions of antecedents? There might be any number of trivial reasons, but the most overwhelming reason is that their instincts and their brains have been tampered with by Jewish propaganda, drugs, chemical poisons and other Jewish manipulations. As a result the White Race, the most precious value on the face of the earth, is not only on the decline, but on its way to extinction. The White Race did not come to this sorry situation by natural means, but through the abortive processes of a parasite, namely the perfidious Jew, preying on its nervous system.

Dying Species. Though all creatures and all species that exist have an inherent urge to live, reproduce and expand, that urge is by no means equally strong amongst those millions of species. The Whooping Crane is one species whose will and means is extremely weak. There are only 50 of them alive today, and this pitiful handful is only alive because man is wet-nursing and nurturing them, artificially giving them every opportunity and encouragement to survive, reproduce and expand. It is a losing battle. The Whooping Crane will die out and become extinct. Why? Because its will to live and reproduce is weak. The Golden Eagle, a noble bird indeed, still numbers in the tens of thousands, but despite it being a great hunter, keen of eye, strong of wing, and noble of mien, it too is declining and is an endangered species, as is the noble White Race.

Survivors. On the positive side there are many creatures that have received no protection or helping hand from man, that nevertheless survive and thrive in the face of all adversity. One example is the cockroach, which despite pesticides and poisons has survived and easily held its own. This it has done for nearly three hundred million years, with very little basic changes in its inherent design. What a record of longevity for any species! Mosquitoes survive and multiply easily, despite all our scientific attempts to exterminate them. In fact, man has been the primary cause of the extinction of numerous species of mammals and birds, most of them without deliberately intending their demise. However, of the estimated 10 million species of insects, man has not been able to successfully exterminate a single species, despite billions of dollars spent in trying to do so.

Fierce Competition. Nevertheless, there are numerous species of animal and bird life that cannot cope with the fierce competition on this planet and are “phasing out” in our era. A dramatic example of a formerly extremely successful species that numbered in the billions a few hundred years ago is the passenger pigeon. By the end of the nineteenth century it was extinct for all practical purposes, the last relic dying in a zoo in 1918. Many other species can’t cut the mustard and are dying out in our generation. Many more will do so in the next generation.

The critical factor that makes the difference is the fierce, tenacious will to live, to survive. to reproduce and to multiply.

The Rat — A Fierce Survivor. The rat is a most reprehensible and destructive pest, from our point of view. Around the world rats and their abundant parasites (lice, fleas, etc.) will spread at least twenty kinds of disease, from typhus to trichinosis to deadly Lassa fever. In Asia, Africa and the Americas, people will die of plague, the dreaded Black Death that destroyed no less than a quarter of the population of medieval Europe. The rat and its parasites are, and were, the prime carriers even then.

Voracious Destroyer. In a world haunted by threats of famine, rats will destroy approximately one fifth of all food crops planted. In India alone (partly due to ignorance, and the superstition that rats are holy) rats will deprive that perpetually hungry and starving people of enough grain each year to fill a freight train 3,000 miles long. In the United States, which has numerous rat extermination programs, rats will destroy perhaps a billion dollars worth of property, excluding innumerable “fires of undetermined origin” they cause by gnawing insulation from electrical wiring.

Extremely Successful Mammal. As much as we may detest the rat, yet we have to admit it is a most remarkable creature. When we speak of rats, we are dealing with the most numerous and successful mammals on the face of the earth, excepting perhaps mankind itself.

Unfortunately for us, the rats’ success is almost invariably at our expense, just as the success of the parasitic Jew is always at the expense of the White Race.

The rat undoubtedly is one of the most tenacious mammals in existence. Its will to survive, live and multiply is developed to the extreme limit. Like man, the rat is a generalized animal, not specialized like the anteater.

It is highly adaptable, ingenious in its methods of survival, and can live anywhere from the crown of a Pacific island coconut palm to the attics of northern Norway.

Commensal to Man. Despite the poisons, and rodenticides, traps, snares and cats that man has foisted on it since the days of ancient Egypt in a campaign of extermination, the rat has successfully survived them all. It thrives and multiplies as never before. In fact, of the hundreds of species of the rodent, the four most abundant species thrive on the expansion of mankind and are described as “commensal”, meaning literally they share our table. The more man multiplies, the more food he produces (and especially garbage), the more these “commensal” rats thrive.

Tough Creature. To illustrate how tough and resilient rats are, the average rat can wriggle through a hole no larger than a quarter; scale a brick wall as though it had rungs; swim a half mile or tread water for three days; gnaw through lead pipes and cinder blocks with chisel teeth that exert an incredible pressure of 24,000 pounds per square inch; survive being flushed down a toilet, and enter your house by the same route; plummet five stories to the ground and scurry off unharmed.

Fertility Rate Extremely High. Adaptable, resilient and self reliant as the rat is, its greatest weapon for survival is its outstanding fertility. A single pair could have as many as 15,000 descendants in a year’s life span. The Lesser Bandicoot, the species that plunders India’s grain warehouses, is an example of such extreme fecundity. The female can begin bearing young at two months, and produce seven “pups” every month thereafter. With that kind of multiplication factor, no wonder that in several tropical nations rat populations will suddenly explode, and rodent hordes will devastate the land.

Ability to Adapt. Not only is the rat highly versatile, but because of the rapid succession of generations it also has the extraordinary ability to adapt genetically. Having been subject to poisoning for thousands of years, some species have developed a high genetic resistance to poison, some capable of withstanding a hundred times the amount that would kill a normal rat.

Survived Atomic Blasts. During the period following World War II, as we know, the United States carried out atomic bomb tests in the Eniwetok Atoll. Huge craters were gouged out, all vegetation was flattened, and the atolls were engulfed with mammoth waves. With each blast lethal radiation spread beneath the mushroom clouds. One of the worst hit was the small islet of Engebi, on which among other flora and fauna, lived our subject, the rat.

A few years after the holocaust, biologists visited Engebi. They found radioactive substances in plant life, reef fishes, and in the soil itself. Had the rat perished? Indeed it had not. The island abounded with rats. Nor were they maimed or genetically deformed creatures, but robust rodents so in tune with their environment that their life spans were actually longer than average. That is real genetic adaptation.

Lessons We Can Learn. We can learn a number of valuable lessons from the rat, if we are willing to learn.

  1. The rat population would never have survived if first of all the rat was not endowed with a super-abundant Will to Live, to survive, to reproduce and to improve its capability of surviving.
  2. Some of the key factors in this ability are the rat’s high fertility rate and its adaptability.
  3. Nature plays no favorites as to “good guys” or “bad guys” and those we deem “bad” are given an equal opportunity to survive, expand and multiply, whether they be rats, parasites or disease germs.
  4. The only “favorites” Nature plays is in the endowment of inherent qualities. What each creature does with them from there on out, is strictly up to the intensity of its will to live.

In the next chapter let us examine what it is that the White Race lacks and what it must have in order to re-kindle its fierce will to live, to survive, to expand and to climb to glorious new heights far beyond that attained by any of our illustrious ancestors.
