Man a Meat-Eater – William Pierce

by William Luther Pierce [from Attack! Issue No. 3, 1971]


Ancient man, according to [recent studies by U.C.L.A. anthropologist R.D.] McCracken, was a healthier animal than modern man — at least where his eating habits are concerned. Before the advent of agriculture, a bare 10 millennia ago, man lived on a diet of fish, game, edible roots and berries, and fruit. This was his diet during a period of millions of years-many thousands of millennia — as he evolved from his subhuman primate ancestors.

Thus, his body chemistry had ample opportunity, through the slow process of mutation and natural selection, to adapt itself perfectly to this diet.

Then, almost overnight on the evolutionary time scale, man’s diet underwent a radical change. Instead of meat and fruit, cereal grains — the produce of agriculture — became his staple.

And this change, says McCracken, played havoc with man’s body chemistry: “The carbohydrates, or starches, are an unnatural diet for him.”

McCracken traced the rise in prevalence of a long list of degenerative diseases, including heart disease, stroke, schizophrenia, alcoholism, and some forms of diabetes and cancer, to man’s increasing ingestion of grains and other high-carbohydrate foods — such as sugar.

“Two hundred years ago the per-capita consumption of sugar in England was about 7 1/2 pounds a year,” he said. “Today it is 120 pounds.”

He pointed out that it is precisely during the last century or so that almost all the degenerative diseases have assumed such devastating importance in the morbidity and mortality statistics.

It is comforting to think that we now have scientific backing for our vague and undefined feeling that the highly artificial nature of modern man’s selection of edibles is somehow “wrong.”

    1. In the Bible, “gluttony” refers to eating meat instead of keeping to the Biblically prescribed diet of vegetarianism, rather than obesity:

      Proverbs 23:20-21 – “Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”


  1. The sacrifice creates the state of ecstasy…such enthusiastic, heaven-assailing ecstasy, which lets all gravity of the earth vanish in the beatific presence of the gods. The witches during the middle-ages likewise had a magical feast and dance as the center of their cultic practices, and unification with the demonic world was carried out by them in a most palpable manner.

    He who wants to enter the actual area of demonism and therefore of magic has to be in full possession of all, thus also his animal powers, and will therefore stick to the appropriate meat food. The consumption of meat played a virtually cultic role in the primeval religions, every other kind of food on the other hand was regarded as something almost worthy of contempt. The primitive man still had a sense for the fact that in the meat of the animals, and last but not least of the human itself, a compression of certain world powers is given, which for him reached into mysticism. The content of “mnemonic energy,” that is to say of latent memory-substance, and therefore of psychogenic force in general is without a doubt greater with regards to the animal body than the vegetable. He who “eats” an animal is thereby also assimilating the whole ancestral line of the animal, and this has a greater energetic meaning than the ancestral line of plants which are used for nutritional purposes. Vegetarian food notoriously decreas[es] the intensity of the animal powers, so that the vegetarian is then easier to control. Man is becoming “tamer.” Meat in contrast increases animalism and demands therefore increased efforts for its direction; it makes the man “wilder.”

    The sacrifice gives and creates everything. In this way does the sacrificial hymn, the sacrificial formula, the Brahman obtain domineering power. Since initially the demon is always thought of as incarnated in a human – the oldest sacrifice is the human sacrifice, and since the sacrifice always consists of an “eating” of the sacrificed one – we clearly recognize the magical sacred roots of what we call “cannibalism.”

    The intellectual of today only has a scoffing smile for these things, since from the heights of his “bodiless knowledge” he no longer recognizes the deeper connections of reality. For the old peoples the consuming of a “body” – irrespective of whether animal or human – was something gruesome-holy and of darkest magical importance. Even in the moderated religions of our time we can still see the bloody origins of individual rites.

    A very abstract form which the sacrificial techniques have developed in the European cultural sphere, but still distinctly refers to the bloody foundation is, at present, in the Catholic mass. Here bread and wine are the replacements, but the consciousness, that this is the flesh and the blood of a human god, is still clearly preserved.

    The following is an excerpt from the book of P. Anselm Schott, which plainly illustrates these facts: “God exerted all means of almightiness and wisdom to enhance the sacrifice of the cross and to give it everlasting importance. He made the once opened source of his lifeblood into a vast stream, which flooded the whole of God’s kingdom on earth and the whole of the Holy Church. As often as a poor human, who is consecrated by the bishop as a priest, changes bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the sacrifice of reconciliation on Golgatha is renewed. Jesus Christ is indeed sacrificing himself on the altar, truly like on Mount Calvary. The priest elevates him, shows him to the people and by separating the body from the blood, the consecrated host from the chalice, Jesus appears as slaughtered and deceased, as the lamb whose lifeblood to the last drop has run out of its body. The word of the priest which changes and separates the forms is much like the sacrificial sword under which the lamb is slain. The breaking of the consecrated host represents the violent sacrificial death of the Lord. Encouraged and strengthened by the prayers, the priest enjoys the body and the blood of the lord.”
