An Abridged Version by Lasha Darkmoon
LD: Kevin MacDonald’s important article, complete with charts and scholarly footnotes, can be read in its entirety HERE. This abridged version of Professor MacDonald’s original 5000-word essay is followed by a short video I have added as an afterthought, together with an extended reflection of my own arising out of reading MacDonald’s brilliant exposé of the dark forces at work in the background of this human tragedy enfolding before our eyes: “The Opioid Epidemic and the Jewish Family behind it.” [LD]

Overdoses, fueled by opioids, are the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old — killing roughly 64,000 people last year, more than guns or car accidents, and doing so at a pace faster than the H.I.V. epidemic did at its peak.
A sense of betrayal seems to lie just behind today’s political discourse—a feeling of being left behind, a suspicion that those at the top, in media, corporations, politics, academia, and finance, have motives and goals at odds with those of the broader population. Put simply, Americans of all backgrounds fear and loathe a hostile elite. Political memes like “the Deep State,” “the 1%,” “Drain the Swamp,” “the Davos Set,” and “Masters of the Universe” each capture this feeling of alienation, suspicion, and helplessness.
Recently, the phenomenon of “The White Death” has entered the public consciousness and received comment by mainstream and elite sources. In a nutshell, working class Whites are dying at an increasing rate, whereas most studies show the mortality rates of non-Whites decreasing. For working-class Whites, almost every indicator of social dysfunction and depression are increasing: they are committing suicide; they are using drugs more often and with damaging results; they are failing to establish families; they are sleeping more and watching more television.
