CREATIVE CREDO No.34 PARASITES AND PREDATORS — THE MAJORITY IN NATURE’S SCHEME

[AUDIO WILL BE ADDED AT A FUTURE DATE]

The Eternal Laws of Nature. The Jewish bible foolishly promises us the “coming millennium” when a universal peace will descend upon the world, and “the lion will sleep with the lamb,” presumably without the lion eating the lamb for breakfast. To realize how utterly ridiculous such fantasies are in the light of Nature and reality, all we have to do is make a cursory study of how the great majority of all living creatures are either predators or parasites, or both. This they have been for millions of years, and will forever remain so, or starve to death.The lion and the lamb peacefully sleeping together might be a great philosophy for the lamb, but a very sick and suicidal philosophy for the lion. Should the lion be foolish enough to embrace it, he and his species would soon starve to death and become extinct.

Predators. Most species of fish, birds, insects, reptiles and mammals are predatory. In short, they hunt and kill other species of life and consume them as their daily food. Fish eat tadpoles, shrimp, minnows, and in general, the larger fish eat the smaller fish. This is the Law of Nature and the ecological “Chain of Life” in the sea, starting from the smallest live creature in the food chain, the plankton. The plankton, which derives its food from the minerals of the ocean water, is the great exception, but then there has to be a starting point. From there on out it is mostly fish eat fish, and on up the ladder. Birds eat insects, worms and other live creatures different from themselves. However, hawks, eagles, falcons also hunt and kill other birds and consume them as food.

Others form Prey. The animal kingdom is largely divided into Carnivora and Herbivora. The carnivores are flesh eaters, and the herbivores eat herbs, grasses, vegetables, or in general, plant food. Some like the bear, are omnivores, a mixture, eating on both sides of the trough.There are also the frugivores and the graminivores, as I have mentioned. Those like the wolf, coyote, lion, tiger, and many others whose mainstay is meat, must hunt and kill to feed themselves and their offspring. Otherwise they would starve. They are called “predators” and their victims are the “prey.” Without prey, the predators would starve to death.

Survival the Only Morality. Nature does not handicap the predators with any moral “hang ups.” It tells the coyote to freely catch the rabbit and bring him home to dinner, and if he doesn’t, he and his species will starve and become extinct. The coyote is not bothered with pangs of conscience about “killing one of god’s creatures.” Nature places supreme emphasis on survival. It places the ultimate penalty on those too sluggish in the struggle for survival. That ultimate penalty is extinction.

Man a Predator. Now we come to our own species — mankind.  Here we find that man, like the bear, is a mixture, carnivorous and herbivorous — predator and producer. In a previous chapter we have already designated him as a frugivora. In the case of some nigger tribes in Africa, he is even a cannibal and eats his fellow man. Whereas from earliest times man relied on hunting and killing game for food, in modern times the civilized White Race raises, grows, and in one way or another, takes a hand in producing most of what he consumes, whether it be beef or pork, or fruits, grains or vegetables. Nevertheless man is a true predator, and undoubtedly the most successful predatory mammal alive.

Some Species of Mankind Parasitic. A certain segment of the human race is not only predatory, but intensely parasitic. Since we are mainly concerned about the White Race and since our race suffers much greater damage from human parasites than other predators, it is parasitology in particular we want to examine more closely.

PARASITISM

Parasite Defined. Parasitism can be described as a mode of life in which an organism of one kind (the parasite) lives within, or upon, an organism of another kind (the host) with the primary objective of obtaining food and sustenance from the host.

Whereas with the Carnivore the relationship is between predator and prey, in parasitology the relationship is between “parasite” and “host,” the latter being a benevolent term indeed, since the host suffers the parasite not because it wants to, but because it can’t get rid of the parasite.

Parasite Completely Dependent on Host. Parasites differ from predators in the fact that whereas predators usually kill in order to devour their prey, the ideal relationship from a parasite’s point of view is to feed upon a host from which it can indefinitely suck its blood and life juices without killing the host. The best situation of all is, if possible, to keep draining the life juices from the host without inflicting significant damage to the victim. After all, if the host dies, the parasite dies, since it cannot live without the host. In any case, the parasite has to be able to attach itself to the host, either on the surface, like lice, fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, or internally, like tapeworm, hookworm, amoebae, trichina and many others, including viruses, germs and bacteria.

Parasites extremely numerous. Besides the microscopic parasites such as germs, which we cannot see, the most familiar to us are those of the insect world. Undoubtedly such insects as lice, fleas, bedbugs, mosquitoes, tsetse flies, have been feasting on and annoying man and animal from time immemorial. But fish, birds and even insects, have their parasites, too.

Since, at present at least, the most dangerous threat to the future survival of the White Race is a human parasite on its back that the White Race does not seem to be able to shake, let us study the life style of a few typical parasites in Nature.

* * * * *

The Argulus a Perfect Parasite. The Argulus is a fish louse. It is a parasite that attaches itself to the skin surface of fish. It is well equipped for its business. Although not a good swimmer, it can swim freely under water, using its legs as flippers. Once it lights on the body of a fish, its legs are marvelously designed to become grappling hooks and it attaches itself firmly to the body of its victim, which could be any one of a number of fish, such as a carp or a stickle fish. Once it has itself attached, the host fish seems helpless to shake it off. The next piece of ingenious equipment the Argulus brings into play is a long sharp hypodermic needle.This it slides under the scale of the victim fish and into the body tissue. From thereon out the Argulus has a direct pipeline to the life juices of the victim, and can feed at will, with very little effort on its part.

Parasites can kill. Often a host (victim) is infested with a number of Argulus on its body surface, sucking away at its vital juices. In such a case the fish becomes sluggish, and as it weakens, it dies. The Argulus have then lost their succulent host as a source, and must abandon it and make the effort to find another. Such is not an ideal relationship from the parasite’s point of view, since it has “killed the goose that laid the golden egg”, and thereby at least temporarily destroyed its source.

* * * * *

The Trichina. Whereas the Argulus is an external parasite (ectoparasite) the trichina is an internal parasite (endoparasite). The trichina is a small spiral worm, too small to be seen by the naked eye. The trichina also lives in animals, especially pigs and eating the meat of infected pigs is the main cause of human trichinosis, a disease widely distributed in various backward parts of the world.

Raw pork biggest source. The disease is mainly contracted by humans by eating raw or improperly cooked pork containing cysts of the larvae. The cysts are digested in the stomach, releasing the larvae. They migrate to the intestine where they mature. The females are viviparous (the young are born alive, no eggs) and may produce as many as 1800 progeny in 6 weeks. The young parasites then find their way into the lymphatic system and are distributed throughout the body. They eventually settle in the muscles, especially the diaphragm, chest and tongue muscles. After a period of several months the host body deposits calcium around the encysted worms, trying to isolate them. The worms also often invade the heart muscles, causing myocarditis. It is estimated that five worms for every gram of body weight can cause death.

Still Prevalent. According to a 1948 Encyclopedia I have, 20 million people in the United States were affected by it. Due to better treatment of pork (thoroughly cooking) and some modern medication, the disease has now been virtually eliminated in the United States but still flourishes in many backward countries.

A Part of Nature. I could go on and illustrate the modus operandi of any number of other parasites. There are thousands of varieties. But I think the two cited above suffice to illustrate how parasites operate and how they prey on their unwilling hosts. Humanity (as well as other species) still suffers from the miserable burden of mosquitoes, fleas, lice, bedbugs, worms, ticks and dozens of other parasites, and undoubtedly has throughout its existence. However, it has survived them all, and through modern technology is even gaining some measure of control over them.

The Human Parasite Most Deadly. But there is one species of human parasite that the intelligent White Race has not yet been able to either control or shake off. That human parasite is the International Jew. Because of the White Man’s failure to properly defend himself against this parasite, like the story of the fish with too many Argulus, it is killing the White Race.

In the next chapter we will briefly review the White Man’s prolonged and unsuccessful struggle to shake off this deadly parasite.
