Every historical event in the world is nothing more nor less than a manifestation of the instinct of racial self-preservation, whether for weal or woe.
[Actually, no. In reality, just about every historical event was driven by one or more deadly sins – greed (mostly), pride, hatred, envy and fear. Sometimes even lust. In some cases, love (for one’s nation or other social group, not race). No “racial considerations” had any influence on the corresponding decisions and actions. Ever. Even Nazis were no exception]
The readiness to sacrifice one’s personal work and, if necessary, even one’s life, for others shows its most highly developed form in the Aryan race.
[Not really. In this respect, just about all human nations are equal]
The greatness of the Aryan is not based on his intellectual powers, but rather on his willingness to devote all his faculties to the service of the community.
[This is purely individual feature that has nothing to do with nationality or race]
The essence of organizing activity consists in the readiness of the individual to renounce his own personal opinions and interests and to lay both at the service of the human group.
[Actually, no. It is in finding the proper balance – and ideally a synergy – between individual and collective needs]
By serving the common weal he receives his reward in return; he does not, for example, work directly for himself but makes his productive work a part of the activity of the group to which he belongs, not only for his own benefit but for the general welfare.
[This is surprisingly true and correct]
Idealism is something which has been, is and always will be, a necessary precondition of human civilization; it is to this that the very conception ‘human’ owes its origin.
[No. In reality, the two most powerful forces that drove – and continue to drive – human progress – are pride and greed. In other words, just about every significant contribution to human civilization was done either for pride (mostly), for money or for both.
Sometimes out of fear, often out of sloth (to make life easier) but seldom out idealism. True, Nazis were driven by genuine and powerful love for their country and their nation, but hatred, pride and fear were also very much present]
Were it not for idealism, all the faculties of the intellect, even the most brilliant, would be nothing but intellect itself, a mere external phenomenon without inner value, and never a creative force.
[Pride, greed and even fear are very creative forces. Proven by just about every sponsor of just about any cultural masterpiece. And by every entrepreneur]
Preservation of the species, even at the cost of the individual life, is a primal necessity.
[Yes, but it has nothing to do with idealism. One of the fundamental human needs is the need of belonging. To one’s community and one’s nation (rarely to one’s race – only for the blacks it appears to be important). To satisfy this need, an individual needs to make sure that his community and his nation continue to exist. So it is essentially pure egoism, not idealism
As for the sacrifice of one’s life, it is s very, very bad idea. General Patton – the most feared by the Germans Allied commander – correctly noted that you can not win the war by dying for your country. You can only win the war by making your enemy die for his country. And the more – the better]
As soon as the spirit of egotism begins to prevail among a people, then the bonds of the social order break, and man, by seeking his own personal happiness, tumbles out of heaven and falls into hell.
[True, because it destroys the balance between individual and communal needs (let alone synergy), harms the community and automatically harms the individuals. A perfect example of this is the sorry emotional and spiritual state of modern “developed nations”]
It is not, however, by the tie of language, but exclusively by the tie of blood that the members of a race are bound together.
[Wrong. There are numerous examples when an Indian or Oriental or Negro boy is raised by the British aristocrats and “out-Brits the Brits”. And when the USA was still a “melting pot”, immigrant of any blood quickly became a perfect American. US-born children of just about all immigrants are “All-American” boys and girls regardless of nationality (and even of skin color). The same is true for Canadians and Australians – both “immigrant nations” as well.
Which means that members of the nation are bound together by a common culture, mentality and behavioral patterns – in other words, by nurture, not nature and by “software”, not hardware]
The industrial revolution in Germany created a new social class – [proletariat] Which currently stands in low esteem, and the day must come when we shall have to face the question of whether the German nation will be able to make this class an integral part of the social community or whether the difference of status now existing will become a permanent gulf separating this class from the others.
One thing, however, is certain, namely, that this class does not include the worst elements of the community in its ranks, on the contrary, it includes the most energetic elements of the nation.
The sophistication which is the result of a so-called civilization has not yet exercised its disintegrating and degenerating influence on this class. The broad masses of this new lower class, consisting of the manual laborers, have not yet fallen prey to the morbid weakness of pacifism. They are still robust and, if necessary, they can be brutal.
[That’s precisely why the founders of DAP called it German Workers’ Party to which Hitler added only “National-Socialist”. It was a brilliant idea and it was executed no less brilliantly, ultimately transforming just about all German workers into loyal and productive Nazis]
He showed himself eager to study their various hardships, whether real or imaginary, and strove to awaken a yearning on the part of the workers to change the conditions under which they lived.
The Jew artfully enkindled that innate yearning for social justice which is a typical Aryan characteristic. Once that yearning became alive, it was transformed into hatred against those in more fortunate circumstances of life.
The next stage was to give a precise ideological aspect to the struggle for the elimination of social wrongs, and thus the Marxist doctrine was invented. By presenting this doctrine as part and parcel of a just vindication of social rights, the Jew propagated it all the more effectively.
[Ironically, Karl Marx was only a genetic Jew who had no connections whatsoever with the Jewish community in Germany (or in any other nation for that matter). For all practical purposes – mentally and culturally – he was a pure German. Hence in reality Marxism was created by a German, not by a Jew]
Marxist doctrine is an indivisible mixture of human reason and human absurdity, but the combination is arranged in such a way that only the absurd part of it could ever be put into practice, never the reasonable part.
[Very true – and unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened. With absolutely catastrophic results. Tens of millions of lives were lost and our civilization as we know it was on the brink of complete and utter destruction for decades]
By categorically repudiating the personal worth of the individual and also of the nation and its racial constitution, this doctrine destroys the fundamental basis of all civilization, for civilization depends essentially on these very factors.
[Also very true – obviously, with the exception of the “racial constitution” part]
The very absurdity of the economic and political theories of Marxism gives the doctrine its peculiar significance. Because of, its pseudo-logic, intelligent people refuse to support it, while all those who are less accustomed to use their intellectual faculties, or who have only a rudimentary notion of economic principles, join the Marxist cause wholeheartedly.
[Dead wrong, unfortunately. In reality, thousands and thousands of Western intellectuals wholeheartedly supported Marxist. Incredibly, still do – with devastating results]
The intelligence behind the movement—for even this movement needs intelligence if it is to subsist—is supplied by the Jews themselves, as a ‘sacrifice’ on their part.
[Not true. Friedrich Engels – the most prominent Marxist after Marx himself was a pure-blooded German. Georgi Plekhanov – the first Russian Marxist – was a Russian noble. Vladimir Lenin – the founder of Bolshevism – had only ¼ of Jewish blood in his veins (and thus by Nazi standards was NOT a Jew)
Stalin – another Marxist philosopher (among other things) had no Jewish blood whatsoever. While it is true that many prominent Marxists and Bolsheviks were Jewish, they were outcasts in the Jewish community (being atheists and internationalists while the Jews are diehard nationalists and no less diehard monotheists)
In fact, Bolsheviks (including their Jewish leaders) were of as existential threat to Jewish community as they were to Germany]
To other instruments of destruction, a third and still more ruthless one was added, namely, the organization of brute force. Massed columns of Marxist attackers [the Red Armies] were to complete the work of attrition which the two other weapons (including Marxist press) had brought to the verge of fulfilment.
[100% true. That’s exactly what Soviet state was. For it had but one objective – conquer and destroy the human civilization as we know it by brutal military force]
Not satisfied with the economic conquest of the world, but demanding that it must also come under his political control, the Jew subdivides the organized Marxist power into two parts, which correspond to the ultimate objectives that are to be fought for in this struggle which is carried on under his direction.
To outward appearance, these seem to be two independent movements, but in reality they constitute an indivisible unity. The two divisions are the political movement and the trade-union movement.
[Very true except Jews had nothing to do with it. Marxists are internationalists hence the idea of a nation – any nation – is fundamentally hostile to them. They strive to essentially do away with all national distinctions and amalgamate people of all races and nationalities into a single nation – “Soviet people”]
Sound social policy has to aim at a double objective, that of securing a decent standard of public health and welfare on the one hand, and that of safeguarding the independence [and prosperity] of the economic life of the nation.
[Makes complete sense]
Side by side with this, the political organization advances. It operates hand-in-hand with the trade-union movement, inasmuch as the latter prepares the masses for the political organization and even forces them into it.
This is also the source that provides the money which the political organization needs to keep its enormous apparatus in action. The trade-union organization is the organ of control for the political activity of its members and whips in the masses for all great political demonstrations.
In the end, it ceases to struggle for economic interests, but places its chief weapon, refusal to continue work (which takes the form of a general strike) at the disposal of the political movement.
[Very true except for the fact that in reality it was the work of Marxists that know no nationality, not the Jews]
In a press, the reading matter of which is adapted to the level of the most ignorant readers, the political and trade-union organizations are provided with an instrument which prepares the lowest stratum of the nation for a campaign of ruthless destruction.
[Also very true – that’s the way Marxist press really works]
It is not considered part of the purpose of this press to inspire its readers with ideals which might help them to lift their minds above the sordid conditions of their daily lives, but, on the contrary, it panders to their lowest instincts.
[Like just about any press – including the Nazi one]
It is this [Marxist] press, above all, which carries on a fanatical campaign of calumny, strives to tear down everything that might be considered mainstay of national independence, cultural standing and economic self-sufficiency.
[Marxists are diehard internationalists so no surprise here, except for the “cultural” part which is a bit more complex]
In the field of politics the Jew now begins to replace the idea of democracy by that of the dictatorship of the proletariat. In the masses organized under the Marxist banners he has found a weapon which makes it possible for him to discard democracy, so as to subjugate and rule the nations in a dictatorial fashion by the aid of brute force.
[Correct, only it is the Marxist, not the Jew. In fact, in a Marxist state everyone is a slave of the Marxist bureaucracy, party and the Leader – Jew and non-Jew alike]
Politically, he works to withdraw from the State its means of subsistence, inasmuch as he undermines the foundations of national resistance and defense, destroys the confidence which the people have in their government, reviles the past and its history and drags everything really great into the gutter.
[That’s precisely how the Marxists work. Only the Jews have nothing to do with it]
Culturally, his activity consists in poisoning art, literature and the theatre, holding the expression of natural sentiment up to scorn, overturning all concepts of the sublime and beautiful, the worthy and the good, finally dragging the people down to the level of his own low mentality.
[Not always. Actually, Bolshevist Soviet Union produced a lot of very impressive works of art – fare more and of far better cultural value than Nazi Germany]
Of religion he makes a mockery. Morality and decency are described as antiquated prejudices and thus a systematic attack is made for the purpose of undermining those last foundations on which the national being must rest if the nation is to struggle for its existence in this world.
[100% about religion. However, the Bolshevist state developed and ruthlessly enforced its very own moral code – surprisingly similar to a Christian one]
In the course of a few years he endeavors to exterminate all those who represent the national intelligentsia, and by thus depriving the peoples of their natural intellectual leaders, he prepares them for their fate as slaves under a lasting despotism. Russia furnishes the most terrible example of such slavery.
[100% true – that’s exactly what happened in Soviet Russia]
In that country the Jew killed or starved thirty millions of the people in about of savage fanaticism and resorted to the employment of inhuman torture. He did this so that a gang of Jewish would-be literati and financial bandits should dominate over a great people.
[Well, not 30 million, of course. Bolsheviks killed about 2 million people (including those killed in action). Two more million died as the result of the Great Famine of 1921-22
It was done not for any “Jewish financial bandits” that existed only in Nazi imagination but so that a very small group of Bolsheviks (and ultimately just one individual – Joseph Stalin – who was actually an ardent anti-Semite) should dominate first Russia and then the whole world]
If we review all the causes which contributed to bring about the downfall of the German Empire we shall find that the most profound acid decisive cause lies in lack of insight into the racial problem and especially in failure to recognize the Jewish menace.
[Actually, none of the above. In the section on the Second Reich I will list and analyze all key reasons for this downfall. In short, it was the fault of Germans, not the Jews]
Our downfall was not the result of defeats suffered on the battlefields; we were overthrown by that force which had prepared those defeats by systematically operating for several decades to destroy those political instincts and that moral stamina which alone enable a people to struggle for its existence and thereby secure the right to exist.
[Partially true, but it was not about the Jews – it was all about Germans]
All the symptoms of decline which manifested themselves in pre-war times can be traced back to the racial problem. By neglecting the problem of preserving the racial foundations of our national life, the old Reich abrogated the sole right which entitles a people to live on this planet.
[Wrong. The decline of nations has nothing to do with racial purity (or lack of thereof). It is about the decline in culture which is totally independent of “blood”]
Nations that make mongrels of their people or allow their people to be turned into mongrels, sin against the Will of Eternal Providence, and thus their overthrow at the hands of a stronger opponent cannot be looked upon as a wrong but, on the contrary, as a restoration of justice.
If a people refuses to guard and uphold the qualities with which it has been endowed by Nature and which have their roots in the racial blood, then such a people has no right to complain over the loss of its earthly existence.
[Again, it is all about culture, not about blood. The nation that allows its culture to decline and collapse, will inevitably perish]
Everything on this earth can be changed for the better. Every defeat may be made the foundation of a future victory. Every lost war may be the cause of a later resurgence. Every form of distress can give, a new impetus to human energy, and from oppression those forces can develop which bring about a rebirth of the national soul – provided always that the racial blood is kept pure.
[Very true except for the “racial” part. In reality provided that the national culture – system of values, beliefs, principles, etc. – is strong and powerful]
The loss of racial purity will wreck inner happiness for ever.
[No, it won’t. But the decline and collapse of national culture will]
It degrades men for all time to come, and the physical and moral consequences can never be wiped out. [Again, it is all about culture, not blood]
Whether one is dealing with questions of general law, of monstrous wrongs in economic life, of phenomena which point to a cultural decline or political degeneration whether it be a question of defects in the school-system or of the evil influence which the press exerts over the adult population in every case there phenomena are caused by a lack of consideration for the interests of the race to which one’s own nation belongs.
[Not of the race. Just of the German nation as a whole. The ruling elites of Imperial Germany simply lost touch with the needs of the Germany people – and with reality, too. With predictably catastrophic results]
The nation, as well as the organization which enables it to exist, namely, the State, were not developing in inner strength and stability but were, on the contrary, visibly losing their vitality.
[Very true. But it was a cultural, not racial, problem]
The false brilliance of the Second Reich could not disguise its inner weakness, and every attempt to invigorate it anew failed, because the main and most important problem was left out of consideration.
It would be a mistake to think that the followers of the various political parties which tried to doctor the condition of the German people, or even all their leaders, were bad in themselves or meant wrong.
Their activity was doomed to fail, merely because, at best, they saw nothing but the symptoms of our general malady and they tried to doctor the symptoms while they overlooked the real cause of the disease.
[True; however, this cause had nothing to do with race]
A profound recognition of all this was the source of those principles and tendencies which inspire our new Movement [i.e., the Nazi Party]. We were convinced that only by recognizing such truths could we stop the national decline in Germany and lay a granite foundation on which the State could again be built up, a State which would not be a piece of mechanism alien to our people, constituted for economic needs and interests, but an organism created from the soul of the people themselves.
A GERMANIC STATE OF THE GERMAN NATION.
[A great idea, only the definition of a nation was dead wrong (literally). In reality, a nation is a community of individuals united not by blood, but by common culture. This incorrect definition was the root cause of all colossal blunders and horrendous crimes committed by the Nazis – and of the demise of the Third Reich]
