Why would the Neo-National-Socialism replace liberalism as the de-facto official ideology of the Western Civilization (NNS will become one de-jure but it really makes no practical difference)?
For starters, even before the COVID crisis, competent political analysts called the Western Civilization “one giant Weimar Republic” – and we all know what replaced the latter. And the COVID disaster made things worse for liberal republics worldwide – not better.
Second, during the times of crisis (especially the existential crisis), no one is looking for “liberal democracy” or even “human rights”. Everyone is looking for the Messiah, the Savior, the powerful Leader, the (almost) omnipotent dictator. In other words, for Der Führer – and the National Socialism is the only successful ideology that can – and will – provide one.
In 1933-38, National Socialism was a highly successful ideology – and so was the Third Reich (the Führerstaat), a unique civilization build upon this ideology (in other words, the incarnation of the latter in “bricks and mortar” – and in “flesh and blood”).
So successful, in fact, that Hitler’s biographer Joachim Fest (a very much mainstream historian and no Nazi sympathizer) gave the following evaluation of Adolf Hitler – and thus of the whole Nazi Germany:
“If Hitler had succumbed to an assassination or an accident at the end of 1938, few would hesitate to call him one of the greatest of German statesmen, the consummator of Germany’s history”
Cut and dry, plain and simple, loud and clear.
Third, today the Western Civilization (in fact, the whole human civilization) faces the existential threat – again. In 1933, it was the very much existential threat of Bolshevism – being invaded, conquered, occupied and destroyed by the Bolshevist hordes led by the “Red Tamerlane” Joseph Stalin.
True, the Nazis committed a whole lot of horrific (and totally unnecessary) crimes against humanity, but they did save not only Germany, but the whole Western Civilization (and ultimately the whole human civilization) from the “Bolshevist Hell”. A very real Hell on Earth, actually.
Katyn massacre of 1940 is an excellent illustration of what awaited the Western nations had Adolf Hitler not launched a de-facto pre-emptive strike on June 22nd, 1941 (there is solid evidence that he pre-empted Stalin by only 24 hours or so).
The post-war Communist regimes in Eastern Europe were far more “vegetarian” than initially planned – the nuclear bomb and the enormous fleet of Allied strategic bombers (not to mention aircraft carriers and other military gadgets) took care of that.
These days, the Western Civilization faces not one, but two genuinely existential threats – the internal one (inevitable collapse of the “world BCE” due to global COVID panic and suicidal “preventive countermeasures”) and the external one (from political, violent, imperialist, fundamentalist and fanatical Islam).
Liberal ideology not only is totally impotent to protect the Western Civilization from these genuinely existential threat – it is a genuinely existential threat itself. For a very simple (and fundamental) reason – making individual good more important than the common good will inevitably lead to making the (inevitable) choice between the two in favor of the individual one.
Which rather sooner than later (and the COVID disaster is an undeniable proof) will lead to the collapse of the whole community, society, state, nation, country, the European Union and the Western (and thus the whole human) civilization. In other words, to a very real Hell on Earth.
National Socialism has already saved “all of the above” from a genuinely existential (and similar) threat – in 1933, the Weimar Republic was on the verge of collapse from the inside – in addition to being under the threat of being Bolshevized. Consequently, it would be only natural to conclude that it will save “all of the above” from current existential threats as well.
Fourth, Direct Electronic Democracy is functionally similar to the way the Nazi Germany really worked – see the excellent book “Hitler’s Beneficiaries” by the German historian Götz Aly (no Nazi admirer either).
He discovered that, contrary to a very popular misconception, one of the key responsibilities of Heydrich’s infamous Inland-SD (domestic intelligence service) was to… identify what the ordinary Germans really needed.
This highly valuable knowledge was structured into reports that the SD (subsequently RSHA – Reich Security Main Office) sent to Nazi Party and government officials. These reports then became the foundation for decisions and actions of the Nazi government at all levels.
Fifth, the Nazis successfully solved the problem that the liberalism is fundamentally impotent to solve – the problem of inequality. In fact, the Third Reich went much further – it built essentially a classless society (as classless as it possibly could be).
Every boy had to join the Hitler Youth and every girl its equivalent – the BDM (League of German Girls). In both organization everyone was equal – regardless of the social status of one’s family.
Every young man had to serve in the German Army and the civilian labor service was compulsory to everyone – regardless of one’s social status. There were no “schools for the rich” – children from all social strata had to study together.
And, of course, the Führerstaat was a textbook meritocracy – only the capabilities and achievements counted (not surprisingly, members anti-Nazi resistance were almost exclusively aristocrats deprived of their privileges by the Nazis).
The Nazi police and security services used the (in)famous Reichstag Fire Decree so successfully that not only the organized crime (a major problem in the Weimar Republic) but the street crime as well were all but eliminated. As were the poverty and homelessness – two other endemic problems even in modern Western nations.
British observers (no friends of the Nazis) stated an unbelievable fact (unbelievable for the “liberal democracies”, of course) – criminal courts in Nazi Germany had almost nothing to do (there were practically no criminals to try).
Ditto for human trafficking, pedophilia, child prostitution, child pornography and the similar vices of the Weimar Republic (the inevitable consequence of the “sexual freedom” in the latter). Oh, and the Nazi Germany was the only country who had the courage to investigate, prosecute, try and convict pedophile Catholic priests (“liberal democracies” started to take this problems seriously only six decades later).
And, finally, the “Nazi civilization” was filled (top to bottom) with enormously powerful – and very positive energies (positive for its citizens, of course). So positive, in fact, that in just four years Adolf Hitler and his regime transformed the almost 100% PTSD-infected nation (and suffering from chronic depression to boot) into the happiest nation in the world (possibly in the whole modern history).
And that’s precisely what the population of the Western Civilization (in fact, the whole human civilization) needs right now – to have their hearts, minds and souls filled with very powerful – and very positive – energies.
However, to make it happen, the “original” National Socialism (ONS) must be changed – and changed radically.
