- VILJOEN ‘RAISES THE VEIL’
BEHIND THE NEWS FEBRUARY 1981
FOR NOTHING IS SECRET THAT SHALL NOT BE MANIFEST, NEITHER ANYTHING HID THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN AND COME ABROAD – LUKE 8:17
A loss of courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. The Western world has lost its civil courage, both as a whole and separately; in each country, each government, each political party…… Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling groups and the intellectual elite, causing an impression of loss of courage by the entire society. – ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN
Whatever else can be said about the politics and ideas of South Africa’s new Minister of Education, he certainly cannot be accused of a lack of frankness.
In fact, what Dr. Gerrit Viljoen said in Pretoria on January 12 can even be described as brutally frank. Possibly he did not expect to be reported, for he was addressing an audience of academics at the University of South Africa (UNISA) at a Congress on Education in the 1980’s and only one newspaper as far as we know reported him: the Johannesburg STAR. We could not find a mention of his speech in the Afrikaans papers, nor apparently was it mentioned by the SABC, whose policy it is to report cabinet ministers at considerable length even if they have nothing to say.
According to the STAR report, Dr. Viljoen stated that the Department of National Education had forecasted “a considerable drop in the number of White pupils in Southern Africa by the end of the present decade, while Blacks at school would increase by some 3.6 million. There would be 72,000 fewer White pupils in primary schools and about 30,000 fewer undergoing secondary education by 1990”.
When we add this information to what we already know – and have reported (August 1980) – about the Government’s R18-million a year “family planning” campaign which has helped to reduce the White birth-rate to a point approaching White genocide, the answer we get is that what Dr. Viljoen so confidently predicts is, in fact, precisely what present government policy requires.
How otherwise are we to explain an expected reduction of 100,000 White school children in the next 10 years when huge industrial and commercial expansion is likewise confidently predicted, and when there is only too obviously going to be a vast increase in the need for White skill, expertise and discipline?
Heart of the Matter
If that reduction of 100,000 in the number of White children by the end of the decade is not what the Government actually requires, is there not something the Government could do about it?
Could not the Government be thinking of ways and means of making it easier for the Whites to raise larger families – reversing present policies which heavily penalize those who have more than one, or at most two, children?
Could not the Government be giving thought to the possibility of encouraging White immigration which might restore the balance in the White schools?
It would be hard to exaggerate the importance and significance of Dr. Viljoen’s statements, because it is not just another cabinet minister. Until quite recently he was Commissioner-General of South West Africa, and before that he was principal of the Rand Afrikaans University and chairman of the Broederbond, the Afrikaans “secret society”.
Dr. Gerrit Viljoen could even be the most important individual in the Afrikaner hierarchy: Georges Suffert, reporting an interview with him in the Paris paper LE POINT (December 4, 1978), had this to say: “As I sit opposite him I have the feeling that here is the heart-center of the organism that rules South Africa, and I am not going to allow him to talk in vague terms”.
On that occasion, too, Dr. Viljoen must be given the credit at least for having been frank,* even brutally frank, virtually predicting the hand-over to “Black majority” rule (which, as we should never cease to remind ourselves, is not Black majority rule at all but rule by Black puppets on behalf of the super-capitalist one-worlders).
Politics of ‘Change’
With vastly increased industrial activity, and 100,000 fewer Whites in schools who is to supply the skilled labor? Dr. Viljoen had a quick and easy answer to that question:
“We are living in a rapidly changing society in which aspirations have been awakened and will have to be met. I has become clear that Whites will no longer be capable of fulfilling all their own skill and manpower needs….The Government has committed itself to equal education for all its pupils and, in the case of non-whites, there is a decided backlog which has to be erased urgently”.
Dr. Viljoen went on to declare that Blacks in South Africa were not only “capable of accepting responsibility”, but demanding it.
It is, therefore, obvious that the Government’s present policy, involving the phasing out of the White population and the spending of hundreds of millions on Black education, is founded on the spurious assumption that in South Africa it will be possible to do with a negro population what no one has been able to do anywhere else in the world.
Scores of thousands of Blacks from Africa have streamed through American and other universities in the last 20 years and more, and hundreds of millions in dollars, francs etc., have been spent on primary education over the same period – and the net result, as we see everywhere in Black Africa today, is nil; in fact, worse than nil; retrogression. Not to mention the racial shambles the Americans have been only a small proportion of full-blooded Negroes!**
The atmosphere of craziness at “the Mad Hatter’s Tea Part” in the story Alice in Wonderland is hardly to be compared with the craziness of Dr. Gerrit Viljoen’s remarks when these are considered against the background of the present disgusting mess of Black education in South Africa where scores of thousands of Black pupils and students continue to boycott the schools, and where, for deeply psychological reasons, there is no chance of Black children being able to produce the response and behavior patterns of most other race groups.***
Unless there is clear evidence in the near future of massive popular resistance to the present policy trend, as reflected in the utterances of Dr. Gerrit Viljoen, then it will be the duty of the individual to begin to pay careful attention to his own future and more importantly, that of his family.
The following extracts are from BEHIND THE NEWS of January 1979 (‘Broederbond Boss Speaks’) – translated from the original French: an interview between Dr. Gerrit Viljoen and Georges Suffert, publisher in ‘Le Point’ of December 4, 1978. This news was apparently “missed” by South African newspapers at the time, as by the SABC –
Suffert: You are trying to set up a Black middle class?
Viljoen: ….It is setting itself up, as you can already see in the streets, the shops and the factories. We have one and a half million unemployed. If we are to find work for these people, we shall need a growth rate of 7%….in five years’ time 35% of specialist workers, the foremen and the engineers, will be Black. These people will have houses, cars and television sets…that is what they are asking for.
Suffert: Therefore, they will also have the vote? And the Whites will necessarily be a minority?
Viljoen: The time will come when we shall have set up the world’s first multi-racial state. And it will be a land that will be more Black than White. The requirement for success will be intellectual and technical qualifications of a high order.
Suffert: Will the Whites be prepared to follow you?
Viljoen: They will follow….they will follow because they have no choice.
Only when they experienced it did they know the truth and rise; and God must have willed it so…for ‘by a divine instinct men’s minds mistrust ensuing danger.’ – DOUGLAS REED.
According to the WEST RAND TIMES, January 16 –“The number of West Rand grade one school pupils rate trend for the period 1974/1975 and is puzzling primary school principals all over the West Rand who were expecting a further influx of grade pupils coming into their schools as has been the case at the beginning of almost every year in the past”.
WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?
The moral sickness that is eating at the heart of educated and nouveau riche Afrikaner-dom is nowhere more clearly exhibited that the massive R18-million a year depopulation programme which, in the last ten years, has reduced the White birth-rate in South Africa by 36%.
The well-documented story of South Africa’s policy of White auto-genocide is told in a book by Dr. Edward Williams, recently published entitled WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?*, reinforcing with NATIONAL SUICIDE?” (BEHIND THE NEWS, August 1980).
As was to be expected, the only reaction to Dr. Williams’ accusations from those responsible – and that only wrung out of them by a newspaper interviewer – was made up of cries of indignation and abuse.
Dr. J.P.H. Roussouw, head of the Department of Health’s family planning section, “dismissed claims” that a drop of one-third in the birth-rate of White South Africans “threatens a population collapse”.
That, however, was not enough. Some means had to be found to exhibit Dr. Williams in an unfavorable light. So now Dr. Roussouw says he is “shocked” by Dr. Williams; statement that “100,000 unborn babies since 1975 means a loss of one-third in the Defense Force by 1995”. Hoe does not deny the truth of Dr. Williams’ statement, but he is “shocked: and described as “disgusting” the suggestion that babies are produced for the army!
What is truly shocking and disgusting is the blindness or stupidity in high official circles that cannot or will not see the full implications of their policies in terms of national defense and survival.
Dr. Roussouw describes Dr. Williams as “a well-known extremist” and his conclusions as “rubbish”.
The same kind of reaction came from a Mrs. Janet Williams, executive officer of the Family Planning Association, She also describes as “total rubbish” the most obvious conclusions to be drawn from facts which she makes no attempt to dispute – and the only other “argument” she can think of is personal abuse, as when she refers to “extremist rightwing attacks like that of Dr. Williams”.
Our own response to accusation of “extremism” from both Dr. Roussouw and Mrs. Janet Williams is to produce something even more “extreme”, in the form of an extremely authoritative letter written by a leading Johannesburg gynecologist, Dr. J.J. van der Wat, first published in the SOUTH AFRICA MEDICAL JOURNAL and reprinted in Dr. Williams’ book; in his introduction, Dr. Williams describes this letter as representing the “central message” of his book. We reproduce extracts from the letter below –
- ….I sat in on two reports of female sterilization at the 9th Interim Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pretoria, 10th-12th May 1978.
In the first report 333 healthy young women were sterilized by one gynecologist in a private practice in Pretoria. There was a sharp rise in the incidence of his sterilizations in 1977. In the second “over” 1500 sterilizations were done in white private practice in Salisbury. It appears that all the cases were contraceptive sterilizations, because indications were not given and were not to be discussed. The predominant symptoms in the presentation of this epidemic of destructive gynecology was a feverish impulse to own, operate and exploit a “new” instrument. In the first case a bipolar cautery was used. Electrocautery for tubal incineration is a method already given up a decade ago. It is dangerous, with damage to adjacent organs like the bowel, and the extensive spread of the coagulation makes reversal impossible. In the second series tubal cauterization and the Hulka clip were used. It will be impossible to calculate the missing children and loss of potential human life resulting from the sterilization of these unfortunate women. From these reports it is obvious to me that our survival here is threatened – not by gun-powder and Russian AK 47s, but by bipolar causeries and Hulka clips. Demographically sterilization has the same effect as death.
Legacy of Darkness
My first reaction to this mass reproductive vandalism from two practices was that they were dealing with a sick, selfish and shortsighted community, indoctrinated by certain depopulation fanatics. They were in search of professional guidance. Instead they were permanently and irreversibly deprived of the most cherished of human rights, their future motherhood.
Fertility is not an illness and pregnancy is not a disease… In the last three years 390 youthful families came under my care after they have been reproductively spoiled. Their symptoms were directly or indirectly related to the operation of sterilization. Many of them were very bitter and in distress with regret, guilt, unhappiness and psycho-social problems after the operation. Some were desperate to have another child… Women never want children as much as when they cannot have them… Up to three requests a week are now received for sterilization reversal. In some of my series of hysterectomies, 7 out of 10 are done on previously sterilized women. It accounts for 100% of hysterectomies below the age of 25 in my practice. The sterilization of yesterday is the iatrogenic (doctor-induced) disease of tomorrow, with genital invalidism beyond conception.
But perhaps we cannot blame these two gynecologists for their actions. They have succumbed to the most sophisticated form of reproductive terrorism: the blunt, crude indoctrination of calculated depopulationists. They are specially programmed and trained to infiltrate our society to make fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and parenting disrespectable. They operate from 1988 clinics in white areas spending R18-million in an intensive depopulation programme. This is the South African response to the universal overpopulation psychosis. They paint a fraudulent picture – a specter of people crowding each other to death. Their methods override all ethical principles. All over our country self-appointed demographers and “specialists” in family planning have sprung up like poisonous toadstools… Episodes of collective madness afflict mankind at intervals, In this case a universal depopulation neurosis in a responsible society which has already had a natural homeostasis for many years. The mobs are out to strip the South Africa women of her reproductive self-confidence…
And what a legacy to leave our children. The legacy of zero growth is the legacy of loneliness and solitude in advancing years. We will have less young people to care for more old people… A community that fails to maintain its numbers may cause such profound socio-ecological changes that it may forever fail to make a successful comeback. But our downfall is our inability to learn from the mistakes of others… (End of quote. With acknowledgements to Dr. J.J. van der Wat).

The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government – THOMAS JEFFERSON
The American educator Clifton Fadiman recently discussed the effect of television on youth, an assessment which deserves the close attention of every parent.
Clifton Fadiman was quoted in the TORONTO GLOBE & MAIL of November 28, 1979, and we give below extracts from his report:
- We Americans have constructed, in less than 200 years, the most magnificent democratic educational system in history. Today we find that entire system cracking, and some parts of it falling to pieces. We all know the reasons usually given, and all of them contribute to our trouble. Yet one has the uneasy feeling that have all appeared in your time as a consequence of some deeper shift in our national psyche. I am talking about the alternative life. The alternative life is the consequence of the communications revolution of the last 30 years or so.
There is another, highly competitive educational system, opposed in almost every essential way to traditional schooling that operates on the child and youth from the age of two. It takes up as much of his time as the school does and it works on him with far greater effectiveness.
The system is the linked structure of which television is the heart and which numbers among its constituents film, radio, comic books, pop music, sports – and the life-styles (including the drug culture, permissive sex, and systematized anti-social conduct) which this structure either automatically or deliberately produces…
‘Confusion is a Weapon’
It works on children and youths every day, year after year, teaching them, forming them, conditioning them. And it is profoundly opposed to traditional education.
There is no way of reconciling the values of literature or science with the values of the TV commercial. There is no way of reconciling the vision offered by Shakespeare or Newton with the vision of life offered by the Gong Show. Two systems of thought and feeling stand opposed to each other. This has never before been the case. The idea of education was never before opposed by a competitor…
But today there is a complete alternative life to which children submit themselves. This alternative life offers them heroes, slogans, images, forms of conduct, and content of a sort….
In a deep sense, all our children (and, to a degree, our teachers, or parents, and ourselves) are schizophrenics. On the one had is a reality-system expounded in a book, the idea, the cultural past; on the other hand is the far more vivid and comprehensible reality-system expounded by television, the rock star, the religion of instantaneous sensation, gratification and consumption.
Our children are not worse or better than we are. They are different. Their heads are filled with images and ideas (for TV has its own world of ideas) that simply make it hard for them to accept the notion that reading, writing and arithmetic are legitimate. (End of quote from Clifton Fadiman, acknowledgements to Canadian Intelligence Service, Box 130 Flesherton, Ontario).
Comment: “The system” referred to by Mr. Clifton Fadiman, is, in fact, pure psychological warfare, of which culture distortion is a major weapon; it can be detected in daily operation against the youth (and adults) of South Africa in the entertainment supplements of our newspapers, in our popular magazines and in trendy programmes on local radio and television.
The great majority of those actively promoting culture distortion are Communism’s “useful idiots” (Lenin’s words), who are caught up in “the trend” and who, from a career point of view find it highly profitable.
However, we should not allow the ignorant participation by these large numbers of “useful idiots” to obscure the fact that there are within our society certain elements concerned with the deliberate promotion of the kind of culture distortion Clifton Fadiman and others have described.
The end aimed at by the real culture distorters is to reduce the mass of mankind, and he highly individualistic Western nations in particular, to the state of “arrested development” which Winston Churchill described as a prerequisite to the setting of the one-world state. – JB (Joan Benson).
Television Defined here is super-hypnotism. Here the welcomed mesmerism of the permissive herd. All the techniques of the hypnotist are here: the shining object on which we fasten our eye; the compulsion of light; the monotony of mood and repetition; the mind lulled and the message reiterated. Dr. E. Merrill Root.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – ISAIAH 5:20
Western civilization is not going to be destroyed by bombs; it not going to be destroyed even by the Communists; it is going to be destroyed by its own educational system. – MALCOLM MUGGERIDGE.
In thy power, Almighty, trusting did
Our fathers build of old;
Strengthen then, O lord, their children
To defend, to love, to hold –
That the heritage they gave us for our
Children yet may be:
Bondsmen only to the Highest and before
The whole world free.
As our fathers trusted humbly, teach us,
Lord, to trust thee still;
Guard our land and guide our people in
Thy way to do thy will.
C.J. LANGENHOVEN (1873-1932)
