BEHIND THE NEWS DECEMBER 1977
EDITOR IVOR BENSON
We have had it with us for quite a long time and we are becoming increasingly aware of its existence, but it was left to the Rhodesians to isolate it, identify it and give it a name – they call it the “K-factor” in modern politics.
Why “K-factor”? Why not? In America or Britain they will probably prefer to call it the “N-factor”. Therefore, as there are far more English-speaking people outside Rhodesia than inside, let us rather call it the “N-factor”.
What has made is so much easier for the Rhodesians to isolate this factor and identify it is the simple fact that they see the N-factor as the only thing which now stands between them and the delivery of their country and themselves to savagery and Marxist tyranny.
But for the N-factor, Rhodesia, its name changed to Zimbabwe, would today be in much the same state of gory chaos as Mozambique and Angola.
So what is the N-factor? It isn’t the Negro, or Black man or African as some people prefer to call him. It is something more abstract than that – it is the appalling mess Whites are liable to get into when they try to use Blacks as proxies for clandestine political purposes.
And the most important reason why the Black man does not make a handy proxy, or catspaw, is that he is simpler, more honest, lacking the White man’s almost infinite capacity for lying double-talk, double-think and make believe.
Again and again the Rhodesians have been saved from disaster because the Black man insisted on being himself, saying whatever comes into his head and doing without inhibition, all those things which come naturally to him. And when the Black proxy is presented with a great deal of power which he is totally unqualified to exercise, the consequences are appalling; both for himself, his own people and for those who try to manipulate him like a puppet.
For those power-wielders of global politics that do the paying and manipulating, the implications of the N-factor grow more terrifying by the day.
THE EQUALITY DOGMA
For example: The N-factor is today ticking like a time-bomb under the Race Equality Theory, the Great Lie of the 20th Century, a most important part of the foundations of modern power politics. Central to the whole problem of race relations, especially in the United States, is the question whether the obvious differences between White and Negro are genetic, therefore ineradicable, or merely the product of cultural or environmental influences.
So what happens if the Black man continues to demonstrate to the whole world, with exuberant frankness, that he is radically different and is determined to stay that way? Obviously, all those political structures and laws and social conventions which have been raised on the foundations of The Great Lie are going to come tumbling down around the ears of the builders!
As the N-factor asserts itself ugly, widening cracks appear in the superstructure.
Mr. Dipak Nancy, former director of Britain’s Runnymede Trust and a member of the Equal Opportunities Commission, admits at last that “Mr. Enoch Powell’s pessimistic race predictions are coming true.” Mr. Nancy said that he had challenged Mr. Powell’s 1960 predictions, but now he had to admit that “impeccable non-discrimination policies in urban housing had produced only heavy concentrations of colored immigrants.”
If that were all, the British people would have nothing to complain about.
“Violence: a deep cause for despair in Britain” reads a heading over Don Boddie’s London newsletter in The Natal Mercury. “Riot Fears Mount for London Carnival” says another. The carnival riot fears, it turned out were fully justified. Blood flowed in the streets of London as gangs of Black thugs, armed with razors and other dangerous weapons cut swathes through the terrified multitude.
And no one pretends that it not Blacks who are mainly responsible for the waves of violent crime in Britain’s largest cities. Another aspect of the N-factor at work! Not to mention the conversion of vast areas of these same cities into cesspools of filth and disorder where the civil authorities have given up trying to implement public health regulations which are still so stringently forced on Whites.
In a Canadian university rioting Black students destroyed more than a million dollars’ worth of electronic computer equipment. How can that be in a country whose leaders are forever preaching about racial justice to South Africa and Rhodesia? Again it is the unmanageable N-factor at work! The Black embarrassing his supposed friends by insisting on being himself.
In South Africa rioting Blacks (described as “children” even if old enough to have families of their own) destroy all their own schools and social amenities and run amok on university campuses. But surely this because they find it necessary to demonstrate against their “White oppressors”! Is that so? Then why do they behave much the same way in so-called “independent Black states” whence the White man has been expelled?
Only in recent weeks there has been rioting and destruction – how they love stone throwing – at Lesotho’s university and in Swaziland’s public schools. And there is no university anywhere in Black Africa which has not been the scene of violent disorder and destruction, resulting in shut-downs lasting months and even years. And nowhere, as far as we know, is there a primary school, even among those run by the missionaries, where Black scholars have not, from time to time gone on the rampage, burning, smashing windows and sending their teachers fleeing for their lives.
Again the N-factor; these young Blacks don’t want that kind of education, they want to be themselves and think after their own style.
Black intractability and unpredictability take a score of different forms, always to the acute embarrassment of those who seek to use the Blacks as proxies for undisclosed, undisclosable, purposes. And much more embarrassment would be caused if only one-hundredth part of the truth were permitted to penetrate the barriers of suppression set up by the power-wielders’ own media of communication. The new Black rulers in Africa help along by virtually excluding Western journalists from their countries.
The media, for example, ha d a great deal to tell us about last year’s conference in Geneva attended by representatives of the Rhodesian Government, the so-called “front-line Black states” and the British and American governments. But how much more they could have told us had it not been for their built-in defenses against that troublesome N-factor!
What a story they could have told if they had not, on this occasion, suppressed their habitual love of scandal!
Instead, they drew a veil of discreet silence over the escapades of Joshua Nkomo and his gang of drunken cut-throats at the luxurious Intercontinental Hotel where the cost of repairing the damage and replacing carpets ruined with urine and vomit added considerably to the final bill of some R36 000 which Mr. “Tiny” Rowland and his LONRHO company so willingly paid.
Not to mention Robert Mugabe’s gang jumping from their third floor hotel rooms set on fire with a paraffin pressure stove on which they were doing some cooking…..and the great leader himself flinging armfuls of his “secret” papers out of the window – afterwards to be quoted against him by the Rhodesian who picked them up.
The N-factor is important only when it breaks surface and begins to influence public opinion. And it is breaking through more and more. Lord Acton remarked that “truth always prevails when it is no longer in any one’s interest to suppress it.” He didn’t know about the N-factor which tends to force the truth to the surface even against the most determined efforts of those bend on suppressing it.
TRUTH WILL OUT
The power-wielders and architects of a New World Order which would make slaves of all of us are appalled as they see the dangerous and embarrassing truth getting through. Indeed, what sort of proxies are these, and how much longer can they be of service, when a newspaper reaching millions of people every day, the independent London Sunday Express , can write as follows about Julius Nyerere, the Tanzanian dictator: “He presides over a corrupt and ramshackle state…. To court such an empty Caesar is absurd. To encourage him in his mischief-making pretensions is nothing short of infamous.”
Writes Doug Collins in The Vancouver Sun: “Machel, in case you missed the news is the well-known Black cut-throat who hacked his way to the presidency of Mozambique when the Portuguese quit. He is the Idi Amin of the African Left, and since his arrival on the scene, the Mozambique story has been one of murder and mayhem, imprisonment and expulsion.”
Of Rhodesia, Collins writes: “We can be sure of one thing. Once the liberals see their dreams realized, and what is now an efficient civilized country has sunk into chaos along with much of the rest of Africa, silence will reign over the great topic of human rights in Zimbabwe….just as it reigns already over the atrocities the guerillas perpetrate against helpless villagers (not to mention the fact that they are also busy murdering each other – a fine portent of the Utopia to come).”
As for the N-factor in the United States, where can we even begin to discuss, let alone describe, the anarchy, the festering jungle conditions, which have been created by White power-wielders who need for their own clandestine purposes the Great Lie that there is no difference between White and Black except one of complexion?
LONG SUFFERING AMERICA
We might as well start with the White House where the President now finds himself like a cat on hot bricks trying to dodge some of the consequences of his party’s alliance with the Blacks in the last presidential election. The fact that his erstwhile allies are in many cases not Black but only half-Black does not make his situation any easier.
In Mr. Andrew Young we see the N-factor in person, the embarrassing truth walking around on two legs, saying things which would have got a White Ambassador to the United Nations sacked within days. But Mr. Carter cannot sack him. Like the Ancient Mariner with his albatross, Mr. Carter must “wear” him.
The N-factor absolutely guarantees that political and social conditions in the United States will continue to deteriorate at an accelerating pace, guaranteeing, at the same time, that there will presently be a backlash of furious resentment from the long-suffering White American.
Mr. Carter can practice race discrimination in reverse as hard as he likes “putting distinguished Blacks” as one newspaper put it “into such government posts as Solicitor-General and head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice”, but he is not going to be able to postpone indefinitely the day of reckoning when the Lie is Made Manifest.
And it is fast made manifest!
How hard it is to live with a lie – and how much harder when that lie has to be translated into political action all over a great country like the United States, and abroad in the form of foreign policy! If only the lie would behave exactly as if it were the truth!
If only the Blacks in America, in Britain and in Africa, or, at any rate, the “educated” ones, would even try to pretend to be the same as Whites! But they cannot and won’t! All right then – so we will make them the same! We will have race-discrimination in reverse; we will penalize the Whites and help on the Blacks. Which is precisely what successive American administration have been trying to do.
How they must curse the lie for being so unmanageable!
DISCRIMINATION IN REVERSE
Reverse discrimination now looks like landing America’s rulers into even worse trouble. Ever heard of the Bakke case? It appears that a young man named Allen Bakke applied for registration as a student at the University Of California Medical School and was turned down. After he had been turned down a second time he discovered, and could prove, that a number of Black students with qualifications much inferior to his own had been accepted. The Californian District Court ruled in Bakke’s favor in obedience to laws which as a whole world knows, make racial discrimination illegal in the United States.
So now the Carter administration is caught in a cleft stick. And the Supreme Court in Washington which has been hearing the Medical Schools appeal is in an even worse quandary. If Bakke loses his case, the highest court in the land will have endorsed the principal of race discrimination. What’s just as bad, the court will have reinforced the conviction that some minorities are inferior and cannot compete without favoritism.
The implications are too awful to contemplate. If reverse discrimination is to be accepted as the law of the land, obviously it cannot be confined to medical schools. As one critic put it: Would anyone willingly have an airline pilot who wasn’t fully qualified but only got his job to fill a minority quota?”
And who would like to risk his life in the hands of a doctor who only qualified because standards were lowered for him? And what about all the Black doctors who must now live under the stigma that most probably they don’t measure up to the stringent standards demanded of White doctors? Perish the thought! But what is the alternative?
If reverse discrimination is declared to be unconstitutional what happens to policies already being implemented all over the United States whereby Blacks are employed in large numbers on a quota basis only because they are Blacks? Allen Bakke certainly started something.
In this situation Mr. Jimmy carter, his smile somewhat awry, stands amazed and helpless, like poor Francis the waiter in Shakespeare’s Henry the Fourth, called and shouted at simultaneously from different directions by Poins and the Prince. His first reaction to the news of the appeal was to have the Justice Department prepare a brief for the Supreme Court condemning the principle of racial quotas.
A few days later so the Washington newspaper Spotlight tells us “the President was soundly reprimanded by the cabinet, bureaucrats serving in his politburo and a gang of radical Congressmen.” After which the Justice Department performed an about-turn with a brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold the racial quotas “by not ruling on their constitutionality.”
PAWNS IN THE GAME
Once again we see the power-wielders, the visible ones under pressure from those behind the scene compelled by the N-factor to publicly abandon all principles of honesty and decency and to exhibit themselves in a disgraceful light, having been trapped by their own lie and not knowing which way to turn.
This brief survey on the subject of the N-factor would be woefully incomplete and unfair without some reference to its effect of Black people themselves, both in Africa and in those countries like America and Britain where they have been allowed (compelled) to settle in large numbers. They suffer far more than the Whites among whom they dwell, prevented by the Whites who use them from realizing their own potential, condemned all their lives to exist in a state of seething resentment, unemployed or filling the goals, in what must always be a weirdly alien, unintelligible, unacceptable human environment.
In Africa, for every White man who is called on to pay the price for evil, White-sponsored policies, ten thousand Blacks and more are slaughtered, die of starvation, or are left to languish in grief and suffering.
When in countries like America and Britain the backlash of White anger finally breaks all bounds, it is the unfortunate Black, many of them descendants of slaves, now the pawns of unscrupulous and misguided Whites who will suffer most.

FRENCH NOVELIST IN AFRICA WARNS THE WEST
Jean Raspail, the French essayist has produced a literary shocker, now published in English as THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS. The blurb tells us briefly what it is about:
By the year 2000 AD there will, on present projections, be seven billion people swarming on the surface of the earth.
And only nine hundred million of them will be white….
What will happen when the teeming billions of the so-called Third World, driven by unbearable hunger and despair, the inevitable consequences of insensate over-population- descend on locust-like on the lush lands of the complacent white nations?
Raspail’s novel supplies one possible answer: Millions of starving diseased Third Worlders set sail for the European paradise of milk and honey. They carry no weapons; they merely disarm all opposition by exciting pity. The fleet of wretchers try to land in South Africa; they are not permitted to land. Europe’s “bleeding hearts” send food and medicines to help the fugitives to continue their voyage. Finally the starving multitudes disembark on the French coast. More fleets of starving Third Worlders follow. Finally the people of the West are engulfed and overwhelmed, destroyed by their own capacity for pity.
We do not know whether President Boumedienne of Algeria ever read Raspail’s novel, but he said something to the same effect in a press interview in 1974: “No quantity of atomic bombs could stem the tide of billions of human beings who someday will leave the poor southern part of the to erupt into the relatively accessicible spaces of the rich northern hemisphere looking for survival.”
However we do not have to wait until the year 2000 for a Third World invasion of Europe. That which is most to be feared is happening right now – and in the only way in which it could happen – through a stream of immigration which has increased during the last 10 years from an imperceptible trickle. Whether the ulcerous social conditions which this invasion of unassimilable is already creating will eventually shock the people of the West to an awareness of the danger remains to be seen.
The possibility of some revolutionary reorientation of the Western intellect is not to be excluded. Indeed, the writing and publication of the Jean Raspail book must be seen as one of many recent signs of the onset of that phase of inwardness predicted by Spengler in his monument DECLINE OF THE WEST. If the people of the West who have proved themselves able, in one of their moods of frenzied extraversion, to place men on the moon, should turn the full force of their minds to the problems of their own survival, there is just no saying what might happen – and happen soon.

Now in the year 2017 a generation or 40 years after this article was written the White Race finds itself in a death cell. The hope Ivor Benson had that somehow the Whites would stand up seems not to be the case. Although in the bigger picture nothing is ever lost, so let us not lose HOPE.
