Show Summary Details


After Matthew Hale's arrest, the World Church of the Creator (WCOTC) began a steady decline and process of fragmentation. The resulting fallout shook the foundation of the church. Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, believes that for all intents and purposes the formal organization of the WCOTC is now defunct and many of its former activists have gone on to affiliate with other neo-Nazi type organizations. Despite all of the setbacks, there are signs that the movement is reconstituting albeit with considerable fragmentation. This chapter discusses the influence of the Creativity movement on the extreme right and speculates on its future direction. Over the past few years the revolutionary racialist right has experienced several setbacks, as groups such as the Aryan Nations, National Alliance, and the World Church of the Creator have all lost important leaders either to death or imprisonment.
