Nazi Party Program Analysis (6)

We demand freedom of religion for all religious denominations within the state so long as they do not endanger its existence or oppose the moral senses of the Germanic race. The Party as such advocates the standpoint of a positive Christianity without binding itself confessionally to any one denomination. It combats the Jewish-materialistic spirit within and around us and is convinced that a lasting recovery of our nation can only succeed from within on the framework: “The good of the community before the good of the individual”

The second half of the first clause for all practical purposes does away with the first one. So in reality it means that German citizens and other residents of Germany will be able to practice only those religions that “do not endanger the existence of the Nazi state or oppose the moral senses of the Germanic race”.

In practice, it pretty much limited the list of the approved religions to Christianity (Catholicism, Protestantism, Orthodox), Islam and possibly Buddhism and Hinduism. Adherents of Judaism and occult religions were (for different reasons) severely persecuted.

“Positive Christianity” in reality meant Christianity that actively supported Nazi regime (or were at least politically neutral). Consequently, contrary to a popular misconception, Nazi regime was (unlike the Bolshevist one) not inherently hostile to Christianity and was willing to tolerate (and even support) it as long as it stayed out of politics (which was very difficult for the Church to do).

Therefore, while Bolshevism was an existential threat to Christianity worldwide, Nazism was not. More than that, by fighting Bolshevism on the Eastern front, Nazis actually protected and defended Christianity from being annihilated by Joseph Stalin and his Bolshevik cabal.

And as the Germany in 1920 (and in subsequent years) faced not one but several existential threats and was in a genuinely dire economic situation, the demand that “the good of the community before the good of the individual”.

For the execution of all of this we demand the formation of a strong central power in the Reich. Unlimited authority of the central parliament over the whole Reich and its organizations in general. The forming of state and profession chambers for the execution of the laws made by the Reich within the various states of the confederation. The leaders of the Party promise, if necessary by sacrificing their own lives, to support by the execution of the points set forth above without consideration.

This was essentially a clear-cut promise to do away with a democratic Weimar Republic and to replace it with a totalitarian Nazi state (Führerstaat). Which the Nazis did – immediately after the Enabling Act of March 1933 gave them the power to perform this radical reengineering of Germany.

Analysis of the “25-points” NSDAP program can lead to only one conclusion – that it was a natural and almost perfect program for a national-socialist, national-sociopathic, racist and anti-Semitic (Judeophobic) party. Which DAP undoubtedly was.

The program that for the most part was implemented – ultimately with murderous results for the Jews and other nations – and with the catastrophic results for Germany.
