THE PROBLEM WITH “HEART-CENTEREDNESS”

“When a man has given up the desires of his heart and is satisfied with the Self alone, be sure that he has reached the highest state.”
– Lord Krishna in The Bhagavad Gita

The subject of love, compassion, and the heart center has been a recurring theme that is popping up in my own life, as well as the world around me. I was recently in a class with some fellows from the Order and the topic was love and “opening the heart”. The emphasis of the teachings given as of late have been very “heart centered”, focusing on “ripping the heart open” and allowing it to “gush”. Opening the heart center and having it fully activated is essential for spiritual growth and development, just as I understand it as a specific lesson for my own incarnation here. However I am also seeing what is becoming a BIG problem with what I would describe as reckless, emotion-driven “heart gushing”. This is essentially when the heart becomes ensnared and motivated by emotions and the subconscious/unconscious belief systems that create them. This is a problem that appears to be afflicting people across the Western world, including many in various spiritual communities.

During the class, a fellow spoke of how they could not watch a movie with the slightest amount of pathos without going to tears. While this is natural for many and not a bad thing, it is a reaction, and understanding the mechanics of how reactions are triggered within us is something everyone should understand, so as to avoid becoming reactionary, which is antithetical to Self-Mastery.

I have detailed in previous articles as to the specifics of how media, in particular film and television, are specifically designed to target the emotional center, while bypassing the logic/reasoning center in order to implant beliefs and ideals into the subconscious. This is proven neuroscience and psychology, but we don’t even need to be told that to know that if we watched the movie “My Girl”, we probably cried when little Macaulay Culkin died. Now Macaulay Culkin didn’t really die; that was a fictional scenario, but it FELT SO REAL, because we suspended our disbelief and became engrossed in the movie.

The above scenario described had to do with fictional television and movies, which most people on a conscious level know are not real (except for so-called “reality TV” which some people do think is real), but what of those things that we see on the television or the Internet or even the newspapers that claim that they ARE real? What of those images we are given that are meant to evoke a certain emotional response from the viewer?

As anyone who has seriously studied advertising, film, photography, or graphic art and design (such as myself) will tell you that the colors, symbols, imagery and scenarios are chosen to create a desired effect on the subconscious, ultimately triggering an emotional response on the viewer. Now, this imagery can be psychologically empowering or destructive, depending on the motivations of the artist as well as the state of the viewer, but in either case, the subconscious is being worked on and to some degree, manipulated. Well-crafted visual art and media is entirely about reaching into the subconscious and unconscious mind of the viewer, and establishing some sort of relationship with it.

A great case as to how this all works is the image of the drowned Middle Eastern boy washed up on the beach that caused such an outcry among Westerners in favor of admitting the “Syrian refugees”. This was an image that was printed and reprinted in newspapers and news websites and blogs and shown on television to a point of hyper-saturation. However it turned out that the family was not living in Syria and they were not fleeing ISIS. Some stories state the father was trying to see a dentist as they are free for non-taxpayers. Others suggest that he was a human smuggler. I am not going to judge the father here, as I do not know the full breadth of the situation, but the undeniable truth here is that the media across the Western world misled people into believing a scenario in a photograph was one thing when it was another. This was done through manipulation of people’s emotions and is completely political and subversive in motivation, as is increasingly evident through the words and actions of those in positions of power.

When someone manipulates emotions, they can get someone to do things that may not necessarily be in their best interest. This is commonly done through triggering emotions like sympathy and guilt. There is a reason Nietzsche referred to sympathy as something belonging to the realm of pathology. Pathology, which is a process of disease or imbalance, is indicated in the word “sympathy”, as it is in any other word that ends in the suffix “path” or “pathy”. Sympathy is a state of “feeling sorry” for someone, which is disempowering for both parties. Sympathy is defined as “feelings of pity and sorrow for someone else’s misfortune”.

Nietzsche explained the disempowering nature of this emotion when he stated that “Pity stands in opposition to all the tonic passions that augment the energy of the feeling of aliveness: it is a depressant.”

An example of how pity could be seen as pathology can be seen in a recent story out of Sweden when a woman was raped by a migrant. The woman stated that she did not report the incident because she “felt sorry for him” and did not want him to be deported. She did not know this man or his story. The person and the story she held in her mind was one that was based in belief, not fact. This story evoked the emotions of pity as well as guilt. She felt sorry for the idea of the man based on a story someone else told her that she believed. She did not feel sorry for the man himself, as she knew nothing about him. At the end of the day, feeling sorry for another person is no more helpful than feeling sorry for oneself and does nothing to raise or elevate anyone to a state of greater spiritual strength and evolution, and ultimately harms all those involved.

This sort of pathology is evident in those who reside in a continual state of emotional dominance. One can reside in a state of emotional dominance just as one can reside in a state of intellectual dominance.

In our modern political discourse, it is emotion that really runs the show. While the Right tends to be triggered by fear and self-preservation, the Left tends to be triggered by pity and guilt, which leads to self-destruction. All of these are pathological, as living in fear of death and marching oneself off a cliff are equally fruitless, but since we are looking specifically at sympathy we will use the example of a “politically correct” Left-leaning individual. This person might put their emotionally charged views on blast, being vocal and active for the cause of “righteousness”, and then settle there, satisfied, similarly to what one feels like after eating a good meal. They may think to themselves, “Man, do I feel good about how compassionate and loving I am by backing this issue. I am on the right side of this one.”

This is of course a trap of the lower ego. Unfortunately, many who work or volunteer for Left-leaning “social justice” causes often fall into this trap of emotion-based self-righteousness, believing that all should be forced to share in their beliefs by the gun of government.

This sort of imbalance in a person is often signified by a reliance on what is known as “emotional reasoning”. Emotional reasoning is a cognitive distortion that occurs when one justifies actions strictly based on emotion; i.e. “I feel strongly about this, so I am right”. This is the belief that feeling deeply about something makes it just and true. “I feel this to be so, so it must be so”. Emotional reasoning has become pandemic in much of modern Western society, particularly on the socio-political “Left”, which has come to dominate the overall discourse of society and culture.

In contrast to all of this, we have the virtue of compassion, which is simply the ability to “identify” with one’s feelings, i.e. “I relate to your suffering because I have suffered similarly”. Of course it is hard to relate to that which we have not consciously experienced, but we are on some level capable of this type of empathy nonetheless. That being said, compassion is not obligation, compassion is not sympathy, compassion is not guilt. Compassion as I understand it is being of service, but it is also using discernment as to whether or not such service is going to ultimately benefit or harm. This why clearing out emotional clutter is so important, so we can wisely use the heart center rather than let it be driven by unbalanced emotion and beliefs.

This brings us to the other side of love referred to as “tough love”. This is the sort of love a mother bird shows its babies when she tosses them from the nest. She knows that in order for them to survive and thrive, this action that may seem harsh, is necessary. The same thing goes for the man who is an alcoholic who needs to hit rock bottom in order to find recovery and ultimately the spiritual empowerment that comes from that. If this was not allowed to happen: if some well meaning individual or group continued to supply him with everything he needed, then it is more than likely this individual would simply continue the same self-destructive behaviors and never reach a point of true empowerment and wellbeing.

Human beings need discomfort and suffering in order to grow. These are things that are the dictates of the individual experiencing the suffering as well as the karma attached to that group or individual, neither of which can be discerned from a photo or a television screen.

We in modern society have been conditioned to abhor suffering and think of it as a bad thing. We see suffering in others and see it as a bad thing. We seek to alleviate suffering AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. This is what a good portion of the general public is doing with the migrant crisis. They are suffering psychologically from the guilt of living comfortably. Therefore they are seeking to alleviate this suffering by doing whatever they can to alleviate the suffering they are told is happening to others. This is of course based in the emotions of guilt and pity, both of which are disempowering and can never amount to anything but disempowerment for all parties involved. It is also rooted in an over-identification with the physical and a fear of death. For those of a “Christian” persuasion, this could be likened to the desire to stop the Crucifixion so Jesus doesn’t suffer and ultimately die.

The heart center is what allows us to feel and truly experience life. Feeling IS NOT emotion. In a physical sense, emotion stems from the digestive/gut area, while feeling stems from the heart. Emotion happens when feeling is ensnared by reactions, which are a product of subconscious beliefs. When emotion is driving our heart, we have a problem. This is why it is so important to sort through and throw out our emotional baggage and the belief systems they have created- they can pretend to be something they are not.

All of these things I have described come from being in a state of imbalance. We want to maintain a place of balance between all three centers; Mind, Heart, and Will, as each serves and strengthens the other, and when one is out of balanced it effects the other two. These centers correlate with the Divine Masculine, the Divine Feminine and the Divine Child, respectively. If we are completely heart-focused, and neglect one or both of the other two centers, we revert to a state of child-like naivety.  In this state we are easily led, easily fooled and easily manipulated, like the trusting child lured into the van of a pedophile with an ice cream cone.

At the same time we don’t want to be completely mind-centered or will-centered, as imbalance of these things can bring about issues like heartless rationalism and thoughtless action. This internal trinity seeks a form of balance or equilibrium, and we will suffer in one way or another until that is achieved. We want strength in Mind, Heart and Will, not relying on one over the other.

https://terrabeata.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/book-review-coping-with-cancer/

This is where the Self comes in. The Self is our “internal Sun” and the place of balance and equilibrium. The Self is the Christ within- “this little Light of mine.” Austrian mystic, Rudolf Steiner understood the nature of the Christ to be one who brought balance to polarities. It is this Self; this internal Christ, which when fully attuned to, brings balance and harmony to the energy centers of the body, as well as our lives. This is what allows us to be in the place where our mind is open, our heart is open, and our will to right-action is fully activated. This is what will bring us to a place of strength and unity in our mind, heart, and will, which will allow us to achieve the personal sovereignty and mastery we are here to achieve, as well as the ability to be of service in the completion of “The Great Work.

So in closing I want to emphasize the following five points:

1. Develop a relationship with Self.

2. Focus on balance of the Mind, Heart, and Will/Action centers.

3. Pitying someone is to look down on them, while having compassion is to lift them up. This could be seen as the difference between “giving a man a fish” and “teaching him to fish”.

4. Don’t immediately buy into social-political narratives the mainstream media pushes that trigger your emotions. If a narrative is pushed into the culture to the point of saturation, it has an agenda and it’s probably all or in part bullshit.  In other words don’t believe everything you see on TV- especially if you see it a lot.

5. Be mindful of emotional reasoning and emotion-centered moral righteousness.

Namaste and God Bless.

ORIGINS OF WORLD WAR II: “THE GERMAN QUESTION” (Part 3)

“The desire to destroy Germany is not new. For over 300 years England and France have fought against Germany’s right to consolidate its states… Hate against Germany has been taught for centuries… We do not teach our people hate against the British or French. But in their countries they are relentless with their hate campaigns. One day these brain-washed people will become the new government and then Germany will not know what hit it. This is why I am building up a defense.”
– Adolph Hitler: speech at the Sportpalast Berlin on January, 30th 1940

adolf-and-crow

The Germanic Folk Spirit has played a special role in the history of humanity.  For those not familiar, a “Folk Spirit” is a collective informing consciousness of a people created through genetics, metagenetics and the unique interaction between the Earth and the Heavenly Bodies in an area of prolonged generational habitation.  If one looks at history, one might see what was a sort of consciousness “counter-current”.  The philosophy of spirituality, science, and society coming out of Germany differed from that of the dominant “empire” at the time, be it Rome, London or Washington D.C.  In one way or another, the Germanic peoples and the Germanic Folk Spirit have competed with the sort of materialistic and monopolistic philosophies of the Roman Empire (The Caesars and the Vatican), the British Empire, and later the American Empire, as well as others who shared their philosophies and ideologies.

Since at least the Middle Ages (and undoubtedly before that), the land of the Rhine and Danube Rivers has produced some of the greatest artists, musicians, scientists, alchemists and mystics the world has ever seen.  It is this land that gave birth to Meister Eckhart, Christian Rosenkreutz, Paracelsus, Bohme, Luther, Goethe, Hegel, Nietzsche, Steiner, Beethoven, Mozart, Wagner, Schauberger, and many others.  Author Jonathan Black speaks of a certain spiritual impulse that rose out of the Germanic lands (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, as well as parts of Belgium and France):

As.. materialism.. took root and spread, the opposing impulse arose in Germany- an idealism alive to the varieties, the subtleties and the anomalies of the human experience.  The great tradition of idealism in German philosophy includes Johann Georg Hamann, known as ‘the Magus in the North’, Fichte, Schelling, and later Rudolf Steiner…”

During World War II, this beautiful German land was scorched, incinerating men, women, children, the elderly, as well as a host of animal and plant life.  The horrors enacted upon the German civilian population by the combination of the bombings and the pillage, rape and torture by the Red Army produced incredible trauma in the psyche of the German people.  The suffering would continue for those east of the “Iron Curtain” for decades after half of Europe was essentially given to the Soviets.

The common narrative around the beginning of World War II in Europe is that “Germany started it” to fulfill super villain, Adolf Hitler’s “mad dream” of world domination and an Aryan Empire.  It is taught that this was Hitler’s goal from the get go, and that he re-armed massively during the build up to the war in order to accomplish this vision.  However, this was not exactly the case.  Contrary to popular belief, Hitler did not assign priority to the manufacturing of military hardware prior to the outbreak of World War II, but rather focused on things like housing construction and improving conditions for the German working man and his family.  Likewise, international trade and economic restrictions imposed on Germany  after the NSDAP came to power made a massive arms build-up a little challenging.

When the war finally broke out, Hitler and the NSDAP used strategy, not sheer military might, to gain the upper-hand during the early part of the war. By and large, much of Hitler’s “advances” into countries like Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland were in fact taking back territory that was held by Germany before the World War I and the implementation of the Treaty of Versailles. Many within were former German citizens who were welcoming reunification with Germany.  And while some may argue that Germany’s actions of moving into Poland and France was a “power grab” (and in some ways it was)again, these nations both held territory whose populations were ethnically German, and belonged to Germany prior to the Treaty of Versailles, and it was these regions that were occupied by Germany, while the areas that were not being “taken back”, remained under the governance of Poland and France.

As far as Poland, Germany technically only took back the pre-Treaty of Versailles German territory where ethnic Germans still lived, while leaving the rest of Poland to be run by the Polish government. Likewise, Germany had a “non-aggression” pact with Stalin, who also invaded Poland around the same time as Hitler while Britain turned a blind eye (Britain declared war on Germany for invading Poland). It was when Hitler found that Stalin had plans to launch a full on invasion of Europe that he launched the ill-fated preemptive strike on Communist Russia.

Hitler would see the encroachment of Communist uprisings across Europe coupled with the advancement of Stalin’s forces as reason for Germany to step up as a defender of Europe and leader in a sort of united Pan-Europeanism. Of course, the German occupation of European nations would have been done first and foremost to protect Germany from the Soviets, many of the “Nazi sympathizers” within the leadership of nations like Finland, Hungary and France, shared the NSDAP concern of advancing Communist power and willingly allied with Germany, seeing it as a strong leader in the fight against Communism. Of course at the end of the day, motives and reactions to Germany’s exertion of influence varied across occupied Europe.

By the end of the war, it would be the Communist Red Army that was allowed to march into Germany, raping and pillaging everywhere they went. This was something that severely upset U.S. General Patton, who could have taken Berlin before the Red Army in a much more humane fashion, but was not allowed to by Allied Commanding General Eisenhower. After the war, Patton became increasingly outspoken of his criticism of the Communist Russians and the fact they had essentially been given half of Europe. Shortly after the war, Patton died in a hospital in Germany after a minor vehicle accident. Many believe he was killed to silence him. In Patton’s diary, he recorded a correspondence between him and French General Alphonse Juin who told Patton:

It is indeed unfortunate, mon General, that the English and the Americans have destroyed in Europe the only sound country – and I do not mean France. Therefore, the road is now open for the advent of Russian communism.

German cities were absolutely leveled by the ferocious carpet bombing of the British and American forces. The supply rail lines were bombed out and the labor camps like Auschwitz that provided most of the raw supplies needed for the war effort were falling into chaos due to pandemic outbreaks of Typhus (which was spread by lice in particular) and the inability to get food and medical supplies. The German military was suffering massive casualties to the point where the NSDAP was recruiting youths and elderly men to fight to defend Germany from the advancing Communist hordes. In the end, though, NSDAP Germany would fall, and the Nuremberg “Show-Trials” would use torture and outlandish and unreliable “testimony” to make Germany an example to the world.

After the war, Europe was utterly devastated, and since then, no European nation has risen to the status that Germany did prior to the war. The creation of the E.U., which essentially signs on member nations to a shared debt (owned by Jewish-founded banking establishments like Goldman-Sachs) and rule by an unelected bureaucracy, ensures this. Likewise, the utter despair that dwelled behind the Communist “Iron Curtain” dwarfed anything that the Fascists or the NSDAP had created. This further served to weaken and demoralize Europe as did the U.S.-N.A.T.O. organized false flag terror campaigns created fear and instability in the heart of Europe for years after the war. Destabilization is a tried-and-true tactic of globalism to take out any potential resistance or competition.

While some may argue that Hitler was intentionally put into power by the actions of the banking establishment, the overwhelming historical evidence suggests that this can only be seen as true if it was done by proxy- which is that Hitler and the NSDAP were co-opted and infiltrated by agents working for the International Banking interests and somehow manipulated unwittingly into taking actions that would create conditions for another war. This would have been steered by those who wanted a Second World War to achieve what the First World War did not, i.e. a permanent global governing body (i.e. the United Nations) and the establishment of the State of Israel, among other things.

Likewise, there are those who sight Hitler’s relationship with Bernhard Stempfle, a Catholic Priest (critic of Jewish atheism and alleged Jesuit) who  helped Hitler write “Mein Kampf” as proof that Hitler was a Vatican agent or patsy.  It is believed by some that it was in fact Stempfle that wrote “Mein Kampf” and not Hitler, and that Hitler was used to further promote what were in fact Jesuit Vatican interests and agendas in Europe.  However, it is interesting to note that Stempfle was one of the NSDAP’s political enemies that were “eliminated” during the infamous “Night of the Long Knives

Hitler himself was a master politician, able to reach out to and convince wealthy industrialists and the common folk alike to work towards the common goal of a strong Germany and a strong German people. Does this mean he was a double agent of some kind? I don’t think so. If one reads his writings, I believe his love and sense of duty to Germany and the German people was very real, and held over from his days as a soldier. While you certainly can’t be a master politician without learning to compromise, and certainly the threat of annihilation by the Allies made for some difficult sacrifices, but I don’t think he ever willingly or intentionally “sold out” the German people.

hitler-unseen-images-pictures-illustrated-history-043

Others argue that there is evidence of Hitler being drugged before his alleged suicide attempt, and then taken to Argentina by his secretary, Martin Bormann during the Nazi “exodus” at the end of the war. Some researchers have suggested that he was an agent of some kind, put in place to stir up the environment for another world war, and then allowed to escape to safety after his “mission” was completed. In either case, the evidence seems to be either lack of evidence or quotes from the Soviets stating that Hitler escaped, or that a cover-up ensued to ensure the world he was dead for P.R. purposes. However, other researchers dispute this and state that while there was most certainly a large emigration of Nazi officers and funds from Germany to South America after the war, Hitler was not among those that made the trek.

Researcher Dr. Joseph Farrell suggests that Hitler and the NSDAP managed to escape to South America and else where with secret technology they had developed to create a form of colony separate from the Anglo-American-Zionist establishment. Farrell argues that a “Nazi International” organization exists as a sort of self-interested bulwark against the Anglo-American-Zionist establishment. He also provides a great deal of evidence of “Ether” technology based on the science of men like Viktor Schauberger and Nikola Tesla, as well as the Vedas, being developed. Things like the “Nazi Bell” and various forms of “flying discs” were said to have been developed by the S.S.’s secret science program. It was this technology that was reportedly confiscated (at least some of it) by General Patten at the end of the war. Dr. Farrell concludes that the Reich’s development possession of this sort of technology was the “secret” reason for the war, and that most of the post-war U.F.O. sightings were the result of this technology being used by both the Anglo-Americans and the remnants of the NSDAP.

Indeed, German science was cutting edge at that time (television existed in Germany a good decade before it did in the U.S.), and it appears that “rocket science” was just scratching the surface of it. This is of course why German scientists were brought to the U.S. during “Operation Paperclip” after the war. This has been used as “proof” of a ‘Nazi conspiracy” to infiltrate the U.S., but again, this is more “cartoon history”. The rest of the story is that these scientists had three options: work for the U.S., work for the Soviets, or die. Given the reputation of the Soviets, it’s no small wonder so many German scientists came here, but it does not make it an infiltration, if anything, these men were co-opted and used by more powerful interests than their own, who had a different agenda than the Reich.

I am not a worshipper of Adolf Hitler or National Socialism. I don’t worship politicians and political parties, regardless of how intriguing some of their ideas and rhetoric may be. I do not agree with Statism and many of the tactics used by the National Socialists. I am vehemently opposed to totalitarianism and police state tactics. I am opposed to locking up political dissidents in internment camps. Likewise, I find it appalling to incarcerate innocent men, women and children who have not committed a crime because they are seen as potential enemy combatants by the government. However we should remember that this was done in the United States as well with people of Japanese as well as German ethnicity. Likewise the “dehumanization of the enemy” type of propaganda that was created in Germany targeting public perception of Jews and Communists, was also mirrored in the U.S. and other Allied nations towards the “Axis of Evil”.

I am of course, opposed to any sort of medical testing done through deception, manipulation or coercion (although the majority of the stories around Dr. Mengele and company are either seriously embellished or completely fabricated). Again though, this is something that the U.S. government has been guilty of on numerous occasions throughout the last 70 years. Neither am I a fan of things like coerced sterilization, race mixing laws or many of the other components associated with state-sponsored Eugenics that was a part of NSDAP Germany such as the Nuremberg race mixing laws (supported by the Zionists and not fully supported by Hitler). But again, we would do well to have appropriate historical context and know that these ideas and practices originated in the Anglo-American world, not Nazi Germany.

It is worth noting that the racial supremacy ideas that have long been associated with Nazi Germany are caricatured and often understood by the general public through the rhetoric of modern day Neo-Nazi Skinhead groups (many of whom have been federally infiltrated and are headed by federal operatives, i.e. Hal Turner).  As evidenced from later speeches, dialogues and writings Adolf Hitler’s notions of “racial purity” changed from his ideas he wrote about in “Mein Kampf” 20 years earlier. By the time of the war and the “Holocaust”, he saw the German people as a mixed people rather than of “pure stock”.  In fact, the evidence of Hitler’s “racism” can be seen in the words of African-American Olympian, Jesse Owens:

When I passed the Chancellor, he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour (Hitler) in Germany… Hitler didn’t snub me -it was FDR who snubbed me. The president didn’t even send me a telegram.

Hitler saw the idea of a common Germanic “folk culture” to be the uniting factor. It was this folk culture that he used to unite and invigorate a demoralized the German people across a very entrenched class system. A united and culturally reinvigorated German people and the possibility of the same thing happening in Europe as a whole was a dangerous thing for the powers of Globalism and the Judeo-Zionist and Anglo-American combines behind it- the very reason why modern European Nationalist movements like Golden Dawn are so heavily demonized in the media.

It is this “Folk Culture” and its use of ancient Indo-European symbols like Runes and the Swastika that lie much at the heart of claims that the Nazi’s put some kind of spell on the people of Germany. The Swastika is an ancient Sun symbol and can be found all over the world. Sadly, it is now seen in the west as THE symbol of evil. It could be argued that the demonization of our sacred symbols of empowerment is an end unto itself, but that is a discussion for another time.dd89b46d1c83ad3d5be961c94e351e6a

A major component around the sort of evil “mystique” that has been given to Hitler and the NSDAP has been the rumored use of “occult” magick to cast a literal spell on the German people. Much of this centers around rumors and tales around the members of the S.S. and the symbol of the Swastika. This occult element has been employed to a great deal in Hollywood with films like “Indiana Jones” and “Hellboy”, and makes up a substantial part of certain alternative and conspiracy literature. The fact of the matter is that there was an interest in the occult and mysticism throughout the western world during the first part of the 20th century among intellectual circles.  Germany was no exception with mystic and occult orders and societies like the Rosicrucians, the Thule Society, the Vril Society, and Anthroposophy.

Rather than being “evil” or “good”, these “Occult” symbols are a tool, and are used by governments, corporations, and religions all over the world.  Austrian mystic (and no friend to the NSDAP) Rudolph Steiner was pointing this out when he said:

Be certain that these people who are now bringing this sign to Central Europe- they know exactly what they are doing.  This sign works.”

Looking at the complete turnaround from demoralized decay, to unified strength, this talisman certainly did “work”.  The myths and legends behind them have been used to motivate and inspire tribes of humanity for millennia. Just because the NSDAP understood the power of certain symbols on the German Folk Consciousness, does not automatically imply that they were employing them for sinister or strictly self-serving ends. In fact, it could be argued that what they were really doing was trying to awaken the archetypal folk soul of the people, as opposed to put them into some sort of trance.

80721d3be9b6246dc50b5a2e090aa5db

This demonization of the Swastika, Folkish Nationalism, and other philosophies and ideologies of Nazi Germany is part of the programming we have been subject to that teaches us to think: “If Hitler/the Nazis did something then that something is automatically bad because Hitler/the Nazis are bad so likewise everything they do or believe is going to be bad.” This is line of logic is a textbook “logical fallacy”. The fact of the matter is that the German were empowered under the NSDAP in a way they have not been since. The uniting of a people under common values and a unique shared identity is a dangerous thing for those who wish to eradicate the concepts of sovereignty and self-determination in favor of a world where corporations literally own people and nations.

Hitler’s idea of a greater “Folk” culture for Europeans through shared heritage and symbolism, and his view of Germany as needing to take a leadership role in promoting this “Pan-Europeanism” (similar to Japan’s Pan-Asianism), has been twisted into a story of Hitler wanting to “conquer the world” and that if the Allies didn’t win, we’d all be speaking German. Hitler and Pan-Europeanism with its emphasis on folkish nationalism was seen as a way of beating back the sort of cultural oblivion that Marxism openly sought. It is a similar sort of “cultural oblivion” that people all over the world are facing as Globalism seeks create one Hollywood/Madison Avenue “monoculture” ruled by big banks, big corporations and the idea that “we are all the same” like cogs in a machine.

Indeed World War II can be summed up as “Globalism vs. Nationalism”. On one side you had proponents of a global “mono-culture” implemented through a synthesis of socialism/communism for the masses and exploitative crony capitalism for those on top. On the other side you had an alliance of nations who wanted to preserve their national sovereignty, self-determination and ethnic uniqueness, allied for that common cause. Globalism won. The world we live in today- and the agencies and institutions that control it (UN, CIA, IMF, etc.) are the direct result of that “victory”. It is basic criminal psychology to project one’s immoral or amoral behavior onto another. It wasn’t Hitler that wanted to “take over the world”- it was the men who said he did… and they pretty much did. While the time since World War II has been called “The Long Peace” (as large nations have only fought wars by proxy with one another since, i.e. Vietnam) it can be argued that slavery could be likened to peace when no one is fighting back.

When the various claims surrounding National Socialism and pre-World War II Germany are looked at in a different lens, we see a much different picture than what is presented to us in western film and television. We see actions with somewhat understandable motives and realistic situations, as opposed to the popular taglines of “racist insanity” on the part of Hitler and the Nazis, and a sort of “mass-hypnosis” being used on the German people. People were terrified of Communism and the cultural oblivion it promised in favor of “equality”, and the nightmare scenarios been seen in places like the Ukraine with the Holodomor. A “strongman” type arose to push back, and yeah, grab a little power for himself and the NSDAP leadership along the way.

And once the “death camp” narrative is understood to be fraudulent (see Thought Crimes: Questioning Zionism, Communism, the Holocaust, and the Founding of Israel), the bottom falls out of this story of “Nazi Evil”, giving us a much more grounded version of reality.  This version actually puts Hitler’s Germany and World War II itself in its proper context. Again, I am not looking to deify Hitler and the NSDAP; I am looking to relegate their role to its proper place in historical reality, as opposed to the Dr. Doom meets Jack the Ripper comic book super villain role they have been assigned to play. When the childish “comic book” stories are thrown out and events are put into proper context, the world we live in now, the one that was shaped by that war, makes A LOT more sense.

The belief system constructed around Hitler and the “Nazis” is a testament to the seemingly monolithic power of Hollywood, the global media, and western academia to manufacture and sustain belief systems in the modern world through illusion, “smoke-and-mirrors”, and political correctness. Of course, no one has been more devastated by this belief system than the German people themselves, who have been racked by a collective guilt, demoralization and self-hatred that is leading to the outright destruction of them as a nation and as a people at this very moment.

Unlike the philosophy of the NSDAP, many modern day German leaders don’t even pretend to be concerned with the well-being of the German nation or the ethnically German families who have called that land home for milennia.  People like  Joschka Fischer, ex Foreign Minister and Vice Chancellor of Germany agree with the strategy of keeping Germany on a short rope:

“Germany is to be contained from outside and heterogenized from the inside by influx, ‘diluted’ so to speak.”

Others like Attorney Gregor Gysi, the Jewish-German head of The Left party in Germany. Gysi, praise the inevitable destruction of the indigenous Germanic population.  Gysi and others within German leadership state that the German people were morally obligated to their doors to unlimited “refugees” from North Africa and the Middle East because of the actions of the Nazi Party. Gysi actually refers to Germans who protest the massive migration influx as “Nazis” and praises the German population crisis:

Every year more native Germans die than there are born. That is very fortunate. It’s because the Nazis are not very good at having offspring.

foreign-group-emotional-guilt-propaganda

The Holocaust story and the other “evils” of the Nazi regime would be used to force financial reparations from the German taxpayer, as well as be used to indoctrinate schoolchildren through trauma.  The Holocaust narrative has caused generations of Germans not even alive for the war to hold onto a sense of guilt and self-loathing for themselves and their ancestors.  This guilt-based indoctrination has caused such a neurosis in the German collective consciousness that they dare not speak ill of anyone who is Jewish as described by the “Jewish Daily Forward” article entitled “German Left Haunted by the Holocaust- Split over Israel”:

“Growing up in reunified Germany, Eva Meyer remembers being overwhelmed by the Holocaust studies that were part of each school year. Meyer and her classmates were assigned to read books about the Holocaust. They heard personal stories from Holocaust survivors. They had to write essays about the Holocaust, too.

Learning so intensively about the horrors committed by Germans left her feeling shame and guilt, Meyer said. But that same education communicated something else:

‘There is Israel, and that’s the solution,’ Meyer said, describing the role that was assigned to the Jewish state in her education. ‘That’s the salvation. It makes you feel better. All the shame and guilt is not that bad, because there is Israel and everything is fine now. And whatever Israel wants — give it to them. And whatever a Jewish person wants — don’t ask, just give it. That’s what I learned about it.’”

In his article for the London Guardian entitled, “The Loneliness of Being German“, German-Irish novelist Hugo Hamilton states how “The emotional attachment to home, to the land, to the place in which you are born, is something hereditary that lies deep in the human psyche…” and how “In the process of exorcising the Nazi crimes, generations of Germans also denied their own heritage and severed an emotional link with their own people…”

Hamilton explains how Germans “In effect, they became a homeless people, and still are. The physical destruction of German cities, the occupation by foreign armies, was overcome by adapting and rebuilding. But the intellectual homelessness was more profound, and included a ruthless defection from anything that had a spiritual link with the German soul. There is an unacknowledged loneliness in being German… They have been to hell and back with guilt, and their overriding sense of duty towards their victims is unheard of in any other society.”

Many, both Jews and Gentiles believe that the people of Germany “got what’s coming to them” and that the results of WWII was “karma”.  But what do we say when we know how many of these “crimes” are a complete fabrication?  If this karma or is it a group of well-meaning, good-hearted, but unfortunately naive people being mentally, psychically and spiritually crippled and enslaved, while getting financially fleeced in the process.  Now with the “Refugee” Crisis, Germans are forced to move out of their homes and apologize for being racist after being sexually assaulted  in places like Cologne, while the German government cracks down on anything deemed as “anti-migrant hate speech

I believe that deep down, there sincere desire among many who sing the praises of German “extinction” to see this spiritual impulse that rose from the Germanic Folk, and the industriousness and creativity that comes from it, exterminated from the Earth.  As a man of Anglo-Saxon lineage, the German people are my people. The German people are also the family of my fiancée, who still has family living in Germany today. These Germans are the family and kin of my future children, and I will not stand silent as this manufactured, one-sided guilt is used to cripple and crush the spirit of my  Germanic folk, ultimately pushing them towards oblivion.

However, as bleak as things may seem, I don’t think Theodore Kaufman’s vision in “Germany Must Perish!” will come to pass. The mystic Folk Spirit of the Germanic People, as well as the European Peoples as a whole, is not something that can be snuffed from the face of the Earth, as it is at its core the extension of something immortal.

ORIGINS OF WORLD WAR II: “THE GERMAN QUESTION” (Part 2)

“I emphasized that the defeat of Germany and Japan and their elimination from world trade would give Britain a tremendous opportunity to swell her foreign commerce in both volume and profit.”

– Jewish Wall Street mogul Bernard M. Baruch: Presidential Advisor during World War I & II and associate of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill

84295552

The Treaty of Versailles and its intentional economic ruin of Germany is what laid the foundation for the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Worker’s Party) or NSDAP.  They would later be dubbed “Nazis” by the British and American press.  The crippling economic sanctions coupled with the runaway inflation of the German currency during the post-war Weimer Republic led to the absolute economic ruin of Germany. This runaway inflation was caused by reckless financial speculation by the primarily Jewish banking establishment in Germany and Europe, who were tied to the Banking Investment Houses in London and New York that triggered the Great Depression. As a disenfranchised, but decorated war veteran, Hitler saw German families starving, pushing around wheel barrows of useless currency while these Jewish banking and merchant elites lived quite well in Germany and neighboring Austria, where Hitler spent much time in his younger years. During a 1940 speech in the Sportpalast Berlin, he would reflect on this time:

Who can even recall the reality of the situation of those years: the despondency of the collapse of 1918; the tragedy of the year 1919; and then all those years of economic decay domestically; the continuation of the enslavement; the poverty of our Folk; and, above all, the utter hopelessness of those years! Even today the memory of these years profoundly shakes us when a great nation slowly lost not only its belief in itself, but all hope for earthly justice in this world. During this entire period, this “democratic” Germany hoped in vain, pleaded in vain, and protested in vain. International finance remained brutal and squeezed our Folk ruthlessly to the utmost. The statesmen of the Allied Nations were hard hearted. In cold blood, they declared that we were twenty million Germans too many.”

In the case of the Jews, Hitler (and many others in Europe as well as America) saw them as having been destructive to the German nation and its people since Germany was the first to ‘emancipate’ them- that meant they had the same rights as the citizen of that nation. Historically certain “rights” and privileges only applied to the hereditary people of the tribe or kingdom. Those “outside” or rather those not under the jurisdiction of the tribe or kingdom would have not had the protection of the tribe or kingdom. Our idea of civic nationalism or “citizenship” like what was developed in the “democratized world” is pretty new. After being emancipated, the Jews developed the reputation of using the privileges of newly awarded government protections and privileges to operate in a subversive and self-serving manner at the expense of the native ethnic population.

Jews hadn’t been citizens before, as they were seen as and behaved as outsiders- keeping socially exclusive to themselves, except during business operations, however, much of this separation between the Jews and the Europeans was self-imposed. The Jews saw themselves as needing to stay socially separated from the gentiles or “goyim” they did business with. It was taught in the Talmud that Jews had a different set of guidelines in dealings with those outside the Jewish community (that is not to say that historically most peoples have tended to treat those outside the tribe different).

Jews, like Gypsies, were traveling merchants, and would go from city to city setting up shops and banks, and were typically involved in many different forms of trade (including the Slave Trade). It is in banking and lending where the Jews were able to attain the most power and influence. It is in their business practices where they developed a less than stellar reputation among the Europeans who had a different set of ethics for dealings amongst themselves than for dealings with those “outside the tribe”, than did the Jews. It was a reputation for fraud and political subversion (like assisting the Islamic conquest of Spain) that was the major reason the Jews were expelled 110 times from 90 different nations and kingdoms over a millennia. Much of the frenzy around Jews in Christian ideology and “Blood Libels” was (at least in part) propaganda put out by the church or the nobility to get the public support for Jewish expulsion due to disputes over debts and interest on said debts and struggles over political power and influence.

Hitler viewed the practices and policies of Jewish businessman and politicians to be self-serving to their own desires, which in turn was detrimental to the German people as a whole, causing them suffering and hardship. Hitler believed that it was a lack of connection to the German people that allowed these Jewish bankers and politicians to behave in such a manner. He saw the Jewish social exclusiveness as indicative to the notion that they were an “alien” and ultimately “parasitic” race of con-men and hustlers, who live off the labor and livelihood of their “host” societies.

Hitler and the NSDAP also saw cohorts in this “conspiracy” being Freemasons, who often held political office and worked with these International Bankers, advancing their agenda through legislation. Likewise, Freemasons were also later persecuted and imprisoned. Hitler saw the corruption in modern politics as a whole as being enabled by the democratic governments set up by statesmen who were members of Freemasonic lodges. It was this collaboration that Hitler saw as the internal “sickness” that allowed Germany to have the crippling Versailles sanctions. Hitler saw these men as selling out the best interests of their fellow Germans and destroying the pride of Germany:

To strengthen his political position he [the Jew] tries to tear down the racial and civil barriers which for a time continue to restrain him at every step. To this end he fights with all the tenacity innate in him for religious tolerance—and in Freemasonry, which has succumbed to him completely, he has an excellent instrument with which to fight for his aims and put them across. The governing circles and the higher strata of the political and economic bourgeoisie are brought into his nets by the strings of Freemasonry, and never need to suspect what is happening.

Hitler understood the Weimar media establishment as being subversive to German nationalism, and the interests of the German people as a whole. Like in America, the media establishment was predominantly Jewish. Hitler would restrict Jewish ownership of radio and newspapers, and use political power to promote what he saw as a healthy and uplifting folkish patriotism to emotionally rejuvenate a destitute and demoralized people. Hitler did similar “housecleaning” in academia, politics and the arts, which he saw as having similar issues of promoting the sort of morally ambiguity and selfish individualism that Hitler saw as the “root cause” of Germany’s external social and economic woes.

Hitler saw that German cities like Berlin become places where families were no longer safe, teeming with prostitution, pornography, pedophilia and sex trafficking. Hitler saw the fact that the theater owners and the “smut-peddlers” were predominantly Jewish in ethnicity (many of whom would go to America to found the American Porn Industry) as yet another justification for the economic and social persecution he would later impose. He also saw a deeper issue with a predominant influence of Jewish politicians, academic leaders, and media moguls in Germany. He saw their actions as selfish and subversive to the general welfare of the German people. While some may see this as creating a sort of “morality police”, those German families who saw their quality of life (and the safety of their children) improve were often thankful.

metropolis(1)

Most importantly of all, Hitler (as well as other European Nationalists) saw the very real threat of Communism and Bolshevism in Europe, and the absolute horror it had caused in Russia. Hitler saw the very real fact that Jews were in positions of leadership throughout the Communist Party in all its forms as reason number one for their forced expulsion and later internment in prison labor camps. He saw the pincer attack of Capitalism driven by greedy Jewish financiers and Communism driven by disgruntled Jewish revolutionaries, and the destruction it had caused, to be ample enough proof that this needed to happen. While we may find it somewhat black and white to say that forced internment of civilians without trial is wrong, we still inevitably make those judgments from a position of historical “privilege” and lack the context of living in Germany at that time.

When Hitler and the NSDAP got into power and began to severely restrict and limit Jewish avenues to wealth and power in Germany, it drew the ire of the extremely cohesive and resourceful international Jewish community, which organized an international boycott of German industry and goods in March of 1933, shortly after the election of Adolf Hitler. There was even a rally of 40,000 that assembled in Madison Square Garden. Due to the large influence of the international Jewish community in the western media, this boycott spread to the gentile community as well. As a result the NSDAP government in turn, encouraged Germans to boycott Jewish shops and services, although with far less impact than that of the Jewish-organized international boycott.

Once again, the government and media propaganda machine that was active during World War I began to demonize Germany and beat the drums of war. However this time the rhetoric became even more incendiary and antagonistic. A good example of this was a book written by Jewish American author Theodore N. Kaufman entitled “Germany Must Perish!” Published in 1941 (just before Germany declared war on the U.S.) and acclaimed by the New York Times, Kaufmann’s book infuriated NSDAP Germany by making incendiary comments that Hitler and the NSDAP used as proof of the dangerous and subversive nature of “International Jewry”, and their hatred of the German people in particular. One such statement was:

This time Germany has forced a total war upon the world. As a result, she must be prepared to pay a total penalty. And there is one, and only one, such Total Penalty: Germany must perish forever! In fact—not in fancy!… the only way to accomplish that is to remove the German from the world. . . . There remains then but one mode of ridding the world forever of Germanism— and that is to stem the source from which issue those war-lusted souls, by preventing the people of Germany from ever again reproducing their kind.”

Punch-Communism-Fascism-Cartoons-1939-10-18-433

Another book with a similar message was “A Program for the Jews and an Answer to all Anti-Semites; A Program for Humanity” published in 1939 by Marxist Jewish Author Harry Waton. In the book, Waton stated that “Jews are far more numerous and infinitely more powerful than the fascists are. Not that the Jews fear the fascists or have reasons to fear them, but the fascists fear the Jews, and have good reason to fear them.”

Like “Germany Must Perish!”, this book provoked the concerns and fears of NSDAP Germany with statements like: “Since the Jews are the highest and most cultured people on earth, the Jews have a right to subordinate to themselves the rest of mankind and to be the masters over the whole earth . . . The Jews will become the masters over the whole earth and they will subordinate to themselves all nations.

This sort of propaganda added fuel to the fire in the need for what became termed “The Final Solution”, which was not an expensive and resource-wasting gassing/extermination program, but rather was the plan for yet expulsion of the Jews (and any other Communists)- this time from all of Europe completely. This was Hitler and the NSDAP’s intent until the Allied carpet bombing and Soviet advances stalled his attempts to transport the Jews into mid-Eurasia. Hitler wanted to expel the Jews to the neither-reaches of Russia (arguably part of the reasoning behind Operation Barbarossa), and then secure Europe in a manner that kept them from returning.

Meanwhile, propaganda was also released by anti-German elements of the gentile Anglo-American establishment like the book “Conversations with Hitler”. The only record of Hitler stating he wanted to “take over the world”, “Conversations with Hitler”, printed as “The Voice of Destruction” in the U.S. in 1940, was later presented as evidence at Nuremberg. However, Swiss historian Wolfgang Haenel spent five years diligently investigating the memoir before announcing his findings in 1983. Haenel was able to conclusively establish that the author’s claim to have met with Hitler “more than a hundred times” is a lie. The words attributed to Hitler, he showed, were simply invented or lifted from many different sources. Haenel also found evidence that a prominent British journalist named Henry Wickham-Steele, who was known to be a right-hand man of Sir Robert Vansittart, perhaps the most vehemently anti-German figure in Britain, helped to produce the memoir. In addition, one of Germany’s most influential periodicals, “Der Spiegel” concluded in an article published in 1985 that Rauschning’s Conversations with Hitler “are a falsification, an historical distortion from the first to the last page

A careful study of the lead up to World War II and the rhetoric exchanged on all sides will show that the most vehement antagonism was directed towards Germany and was coming out of the Allied camp, specifically from Britain and the international Jewish leadership. Interestingly, many in the U.S., including many industrialists backed NSDAP Germany, and actually shared Germany’s concern over Jewish power in both Capitalism and Communism. Many spoke out against Communist International and their openly stated goal of a world Communist empire.

There was in fact a coup planned by elements within the American industrialist and business class to overthrow F.D.R. due to concerns of Communist and Zionist infiltration within the government. While the plot was foiled, the concerns of these business leaders were later confirmed in the book “My Exploited Father-In-Law”, by Roosevelt’s son-in-law, Col. Curtis B. Dall, which detailed the activities of Jewish influentials like the Warburg banking family and Secretary of the Treasury for the Roosevelt Administration and accused Communist, Henry Morgenthau. Morgenthau was the author of the infamous “Morgenthau Plan” for postwar Germany, calling for Germany to be partitioned into separate independent states, stripped of all heavy industry and forced to return to a pre-Industrial Revolution agrarian economy. Morgenthau was also a part of the Bretton Woods Conference at the end of World War II, which established globalist entities like the IMF and the World Bank.

Despite international demonization, Hitler was extremely popular in Germany and admired all over the world and was even Time Magazine’sMan of the Year”. Hitler was elected by German people through a popular election, to the position of German chancellor. Of course it can be argued that the events of and around the Reichstag Fire that allowed Hitler and the NSDAP declare a State of Emergency, which allowed them to set up a form of martial law, were somewhat questionable and possibly orchestrated through false-flag tactics.

controversy11n-2-web

This State of Emergency and martial law (which was actually enabled by the Weimar Republic Constitution established pre-NSDAP power) declared by Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP after the Reichstag Fire in 1933 was done (according to NSDAP leadership) to secure Germany from the wave of Jewish Communist terror attacks and assassinations that were running rampant throughout Germany as well of the rest of Europe at the time. At that time, this was seen by many as reasonable and justifiable given what had been occurring. But it was somewhat of a totalitarian society nonetheless, and there were certain guidelines for conduct and speech and the like that some did not care for. It was clear that those living in German society were to put Folk and the National Identity above their own individualistic desires. Hard-line individualists were certainly not a fan of Hitler’s German Police State, but the NSDAP saw self-interested individualism as antithetical to the wellbeing of a nation:

This state came into being, and all states come into being, through overcoming interests of pure personal will and individual selfishness. Democracy steers recklessly toward placing the individual in the center of everything. In the long run it is impossible to escape the crisis such a conflict will produce.”

While demonization of the NSDAP began as soon as they came to power, the fact remains that the actions of the National Socialist government enabled a social and economic “180” that astonished the world. Someone during that time may tell you how Hitler and the NSDAP turned Germany into and economic powerhouse in three-year’s time, while the rest of the world was still deep into an economic depression. Upon taking power in 1933, Hitler and the NSDAP implemented radical sweeping changes including pulling Germany out of the League of Nations; banning the Communist Party in Germany and arresting its leaders; replacing the national Marxist Trade Unions with smaller company unions; establishing the NSDAP as Germany’s only political party; refusing to make any more reparations payments on the Versailles Treaty; taking control of Germany’s Reichsbank and issuing debt-free currency; restricting Jewish ownership of radio and newspapers; cutting taxes and providing tax incentives for mothers to stay home and raise their children; rebuilding infrastructure and initiation of projects like the Autobahn Highway system.

Hitler’s state-sponsored social and development programs, backed by a German currency based off the production of the German people rocketed Germany to an unfathomable economic recovery and boom. Even the regularly praised “New Deal” of President Roosevelt was rife with corruption and financial boondoggling, and had nowhere near the efficiency and overall success rate of the German work programs. It was World War II and the U.S. dollar reserve currency status that came out of Bretton Woods that rebuilt the U.S. economy and turned the U.S. into a “superpower”, not FDR’s “New Deal”.

The philosophy of meritocracy was heavily promoted in National Socialist Germany, meaning that the individual was praised and promoted within the various avenues of society based on his merit and work, rather than any pre-determined class or social status. This philosophy eventually drew the resentment of the German Aristocracy; many of whom held had positions of high rank within the German military. They saw the rise to power of a man from an upper-middle-class family, as being antithetical to what Germany should be. It was these men who sought assassinate Hitler and gave information and military secrets to the Allies that ultimately led to German defeat in World War II.

propaganda-poster-s-nazi-germany-second-world-war-002

It can be argued that it was National Socialism, with its emphasis on meritocracy, family and promoting vacations to the countryside and cruises, while maintaining good wages and working conditions, was the real “worker’s paradise” as opposed to the oppressive Communism, which essentially promoted the opposite of those things. Hitler understood that it was the uniting of the German people under folkish nationalism and a sense of the needs of the community trumping the desires of the individual:

We have overcome our internal division! Destructive forces took a grip on Germany. But constructive National Socialism has overcome this force. It has refused to allow the existing state of affairs and undertaken its modification. It changed the method of eradicating the state of affairs by saying: ‘We want to change this state of affairs by gradually permitting the non-possessing classes to partake in the national wealth and by educating them in how to partake in it.‘”

Hitler with animals

Much of the NSDAP leadership were also classical environmentalists and believed in animal rights. Vivisection (animal testing) was banned under the NSDAP government. Having the goal of building in harmony with their environment, the NSDAP pioneered “sustainable development” long before anyone knew what it was. The designs for NSDAP roadway and infrastructure projects were ecologically sound as well as aesthetically pleasing, as aesthetics and “classical” beauty in art and sculpture was highly prized by the NSDAP, who sought to produce a sort of “New Renaissance” and do away with what they saw as subversive and ugly modern art and architecture.

Of course, the Anglo-American and Judeo-Zionist powers that wished to establish the system of Globalism that we live under today understood that in order for this system to come to full fruition, Nationalism, especially the “Volkisch” Nationalism that was gaining strength and momentum in Europe, would need to be crushed.  Likewise, any and all “sympathizers” to this ideology in Britain and the U.S., needed to be marginalized and silence.  With the inevitable declaration of war by the Anglo-American establishment, any supporters of Hitler or National Socialist ideology, were now marginalized and seen as enemy sympathizers.  This included both British Royalty and wealthy American Industrialists.

In the third and final installment of this series, I will talk about the factors that surrounded the outbreak of the war and the results that linger still today.  I will also get into some of the “conspiracy theories” around Hitler and the NSDAP as well as the spiritual/occult side to all of this.

 

ORIGINS OF WORLD WAR II: THE “GERMAN QUESTION” (Part 1)

“(We are fighting) to defeat the most dangerous conspiracy ever plotted against the liberty of nations, carefully, skillfully, insidiously, clandestinely planned in every detail with ruthless, cynical determination.”
– British Prime Minister Lloyd George: speaking about Germany during World War I

3g02794u-1562

If you go up to anyone on the street and ask the question, “Who was the most evil man that ever lived?” the vast majority will undoubtedly say one name: HITLER. No one person throughout the entirety of history has been more demonized and vilified than Adolf Hitler, and no entity more so than the National Socialist German Worker’s Party (NSGWP or NSDAP in German); aka. “The NAZIS”. To this day, to call someone a “Nazi” is to liken them to an ultra-racist, aggressively oppressive, freedom-hating, genocidal maniac. But the question is, how much of our perception around Hitler and the “Nazis” is rooted in actual fact and how much of it is rooted in propaganda? Also, what was their actual motivation for doing what they actually did?

To get a clear picture of what brought Hitler and the NSDAP to power, we need to have a firm rooting in historical context. To many, the rise of Hitler has been seen as a phenomenon that cannot be explained outside of some form of “mass hypnosis”.  Much of this is cartoonish, one-dimensional thinking, that lacks context and historical perspective. When we objectively look at history in totality, with a solid understanding of basic human psychology, things make a lot more sense. Sadly, even many with “spiritual sight” get sucked into the  emotional propaganda and the concrete belief system built around this period. So let’s look at why decent German people would have popularly elected a “madman”. In order to do that, we need to look at the history surrounding Germany and Europe before, during and after World War I, so we can provide context for the NSDAP’s rise to power.

For Germany, this really begins with the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. After thwarting Napoleon III’s (nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte) advances, Prussia and a confederation of smaller German states unify under Kaiser Wilhelm I and Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck. With the defeat of France, this newly unified Germany was now the economic powerhouse of Europe with one of the most powerful professional armies in the world The Prussians were renowned for their military prowess, and in fact, their model for training their soldiers was used to model the American education system. Imperial Germany also began to acquire a small number of colonies to extract resources. This created a bit of uneasiness and contempt in the seat of global economic power that resided within the British Empire at the time.

The British Empire and more importantly the corporate and financial interests that controlled it through the City of London (a sovereign state within a state like the Vatican or D.C. except instead of churches or statehouses it’s banks) had a near-complete monopoly of economic power and control of resources at this point in history- something that continues to this day. In a recent article for the London Guardian, journalist George Monbiot describes how the City of London Corporation “has exploited this remarkable position to establish itself as a kind of offshore state, a secrecy jurisdiction which controls the network of tax havens housed in the UK’s crown dependencies and overseas territories. This autonomous state within our borders is in a position to launder the ill-gotten cash of oligarchs, kleptocrats, gangsters and drug barons… It deprives the United Kingdom and other nations of their rightful tax receipts.”

Monbiot goes on to say that the sovereign, unaccountable City of London Corporation “has also made the effective regulation of global finance almost impossible… the absence of proper regulation in London allowed American banks to evade the rules set by their own government. AIG’s wild trading might have taken place in the US, but the unit responsible was regulated in the City. Lehman Brothers couldn’t get legal approval for its off-balance sheet transactions in Wall Street, so it used a London law firm instead.

This economic empire operated in the same manner a century and a half ago. This empire wished to maintain this power, and did not like the competition that arose out of middle Europe. Throughout the latter part of the nineteenth century, it was the slight-of-hand “diplomacy” of British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli during the Congress of Berlin after the Russo-Turkish War, that created seeds of contentment and mistrust among Germany and her allies in continental Europe; specifically Czarist Russia- Great Britain’s other economic competitor. This fostered the environment that would isolate the economic competition and lead to World War I; this strategy was a tried and true tactic of the British Empire- the strategy of divide and conquer. Disraeli was Britain’s first Jewish-born Prime Minister, “who was always true to his race and proud of his origin.

It was Disraeli who once stated,The Lord deals with the nations as the nations deal with the Jews.

It was also during this time that the Communist movement of Europe began to gather real momentum. Founded by Jewish-German philosopher, Karl Marx, Communism called for a “dictatorship of the proletariat” (the working class) and an overthrow of the “bourgeois” (the moneyed industrialist class). Marx’s “Communist Manifesto” outlines the road to a “utopian society” in three phases. The first phase is a revolution that overthrows the oppressive bourgeois, setting up a dictatorship dedicated to “the common good” (as opposed to rights of the individual).

This begins the second phase where once the dictatorship is established; the government takes centralized control of all aspects of society- property, transportation, education, industrial production, agriculture, regional planning, communications, and labor. Simultaneously, a Central Bank (i.e. the Federal Reserve) is established which proceeds to lay a heavy progressive income tax on the population.

This then takes us to phase three, where in theory, the centralization of power will create a society where the dictatorship of a few select is eventually no longer required. The dictatorship will then be relinquished in favor of a popular democracy of sorts, where ALL the proletariat (men and women) has a say in the workings of government and society. I say “in theory” for phase three because that last phase has NEVER happened in ANY Communist government in history.

The rise of the Communist movement would bring mainland Europe to the brink of chaos, with continued rioting and repeated assassination attempts on European leaders. Communists attempted to assassinate German leader Kaiser Wilhelm I twice in less than a month’s time! There was a concerted movement here to bring down the old monarchies and nobilities of Europe (interestingly, this never really caught on in Great Britain, although there was definitely abuse of the “proletariat” happening there as well).

After the death of Kaiser Wilhelm I, his 29-year-old son, Wilhelm II took the throne. The younger Wilhelm was a bit more pragmatic towards the communist movement and did not want to “crush the Reds” like his father did. He believed that if Germany became more “democratic” it would pacify them. This would prove to be a false assumption. Wilhelm II also turns his back on then-ally Russia in an attempt to get better relations with Great Britain, as his grandmother was on the throne there anyhow. Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck had crafted this alliance with Czarist Russia, but the young Kaiser severed this by refusing to re-sign the Reinsurance Treaty and dismissed Bismarck shortly thereafter. However, by that time the monarchy in Britain had become more of a “face” of power. The real power lied in the financial interests that were at that time largely represented by the Rothschild family of international financiers.

Poster - House of Rothschild, The_04

To quote Lawrence Joffe in his “Complete Illustrated History of the Jewish People”:

In the 19th century the Rothschild name exemplified wealth and success, and so it remains today. Their story is only one chapter in the story of Jewish financial prowess.

The Rothschilds “arguably founded the first transnational corporation” (Joffe) with banking branches in Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Naples and Paris. Again, according to Joffe’s “History of the Jewish People”, in the U.K., Nathan Mayer Rothschildfounded the brokering house N.M. Rothschild. The Rothschild family was soon handling most English financial dealings with the Continent. Nathan’s branch funded the British war effort against Napoleon… Between 1818 and 1835 Nathan Mayer issued 26 British and foreign government loans. In 1824 he floated the Alliance Assurance Company and the following year he helped the Bank of England avoid a liquidity crisis.

Usury is the lending of money at and exorbitant rate of interest. It needs to be understood that this is what international financiers like the Rothschilds did then, and this is what international financial institutions continue to do now. If there was one good thing the Catholic Church ever did it was the outlawing of usury, but by this time the Church did not wield that kind of political power. Through usury, the financial institution gets the one taking the loan locked into debt they cannot pay back due to ridiculously compounding interest. This causes the lender to assert the right to take property, resources, etc. as modes of payment. This is how international finance capital works.

Joffe also states that Rothschild was “famously discreet, and used similarly cautious agents to courier funds… Above all he understood the value of accurate and speedy information. His private intelligence service learned the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo a day before the British Government.

However, what is not stated in this book about the intelligence surrounding the Battle of Waterloo was that Rothschild used this information to start a rumor in the financial circles that Britain had lost that battle, causing investors to panic and sell off stocks, which Rothschild interests bought for pennies on the dollar. An interesting modern-day correlation is the recent revelation that NSA Data had been used by select corporations to get an edge on market competitors- the more things change…

After the passing of N.M. Rothschild, his eldest son Lionel succeeded him as head of the London branch that was based within the City of London. Under Lionel the bank financed the British government’s purchase of the Suez Canal in 1875 as well as Cecil Rhode’s colonial exploits into Africa. Lionel’s son, Alfred de Rothschild, became a director of the Bank of England in 1869, a post he held for 20 years. Alfred was one of representatives of the British Government at the 1892 International Monetary Conference in Brussels. According to Lord Chancellor Greg Hallett, Lionel also had an alleged affair with and sired several children to Queen Victoria of England.

The Rothschild Dynasty was the latest and greatest of the elite Jewish banking oligarchs that made inroads into British aristocratic society by acquiring their properties and titles, and thus mixing themselves with the aristocracy, and by the nature of the British representative system, they came closer and closer to the government. This was enabled after Oliver Cromwell and Charles I readmitted Jews into England in the mid-1600s as they had been expelled back in 1290 by Edward I for practicing usury. The Rothschilds followed the example of Jewish banking oligarchs like Sampson Gideon, and used this favorable climate to seize the reigns of the British military and naval machine in order to seize control of riches and resources across the globe. It was British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli; Rothschild “front man”, and the man who bestowed upon Queen Victoria the title of “Empress of India” who stated:

The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.

The British and French branches of the Rothschild bank also financed and became the largest shareholders of the DeBeers diamond mines in South Africa in 1905. An interesting saga came out of this at the end of the World War I when Jewish-German diamond magnate Ernest Oppenheimer took advantage of German investor panic at the end of the war and was able to seize the German diamond assets that had initially broken the monopoly the British had on diamonds. Oppenheimer would go on to head up DeBeers and be knighted in England.

In 1904, the Entente Cordiale was signed between Britain and France. This series of agreements put an end to centuries-old conflict between the two nations, along with the Triple Entente between Britain, France, and ally-of-convenience Russia, effectively isolated Germany and her ally, Austria-Hungary. Former German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck saw the storm coming and on his deathbed in 1897 stated that One day, the great European War will come out of some damned foolish thing in the Balkans.”

Due to border rearrangement spearheaded by British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli at the Congress of Berlin, many ethnic Serbs found themselves under the rule of Austria-Hungary, who were ethnically and culturally very different from the Slavic Serbs. This caused a culture clash that spearheaded with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary by a group of Serbian Nationalists. Kaiser Wilhelm II attempted to convince Austria-Hungary to engage in talks with Serbia, but it was of little avail, as Austria-Hungary soon declared war on Serbia anyhow.

This started a chain reaction, bringing ethnically Slavic Russia in the war to defend its ally Serbia, which brought Germany into the war to defend Austria-Hungary, which brought France and the UK into the war on the side of Russia, which brings Russia’s rival the Ottoman Turks in on the side of Austria-Hungary and Germany. This began a bloody conflict, which brought death and destruction on a scale that had never been seen before. I’m not going to get into a blow-by-blow analysis on the various battles and tactical maneuvers of this war. What I am focusing on here is Germany’s role and how this was portrayed to the rest of the world.

In the press, Germans were demonized and dehumanized, often portrayed as barbaric monsters that raped women, cut off the hands of children, and impaling babies on bayonets and nailing them to doors. Other stories included that of German soldiers using the bodies of their own fallen soldiers to manufacture soap. This particular narrative would be recycled and repackaged for the Second World War as one of the more fantastical elements of the Holocaust story.

Images and stories depicting the supposed atrocities of German soldiers circulated around Britain and France, but lacked any sort of evidence to back up these allegations. Officially sanctioned by the British establishment, the publication of the infamous Report of the Committee on Alleged German Outrages, better known as “The Bryce Report”, was translated into 30 different languages in 1915, and although nearly every story produced within was eventually discredited, the damage had already been done as these false atrocity stories to rile up British and French youths to go to war with the evil “Hun”.

Despite the “Special Relationship” with Britain that was being promoted by the political establishment in the United States at the turn of the 20th century, the American public typically saw themselves as separate and removed from Great Britain and her affairs. In fact, the voices of impartiality during the war tended to come from American journalists. Roger Lewis of the Associated Press wrote:

To let the truth be known, we unanimously declare the stories of German cruelties, from what we have been able to observe, were untrue. After having been with the German army for two weeks, and having accompanied the troops for over one hundred miles, we are not able to report one single case of undeserved punishment or measure of retribution.”

Irwin Cobb of the Saturday Evening Post also correlated the apparent falsification of German Barbarity:

We found numerous rumours after investigation to be without foundation. German soldiers paid everywhere for what they bought, and respected private property and civil rights. We found Belgian women and children after the battle of Buissière to feel absolutely safe. A citizen was shot in Merbes-le-Chateau, but nobody could prove his innocence.

John T. McCutcheon of the Chicago Tribune confirmed:

Refugees, who told about cruelties and brutalities, could bring absolutely no proof. The discipline of the German soldiers is excellent; no drunkenness. The Burgomaster of Sorle-sur-Sambre voluntarily disclaimed all rumours of cruelties in that district. For the truth of the above we pledge our word of honor as journalists.

However, this voice of reason out of the American press would eventually turn into hysterical war drums. On May 7th, 1915, the British luxury liner, the RMS Lusitania, left New York for Britain with 1959 passengers and, unbeknownst to the passengers, some 600 tons of explosives, 6 million rounds of ammunition, and 1,200 cases of shrapnel shells. The German Embassy however, was aware of this and attempted to warn those planning to travel aboard of the danger they would be in, by attempting to place ads in major U.S. newspapers, but were in most cases, denied. The ship set sail and was deliberately maneuvered into dangerous waters by Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill, who then relieved the ship’s military escort. It was at that point German U-Boats fired upon and sank the liner, killing nearly 1200 passengers aboard, including 128 Americans. However, America was a different nation then, and it would take a bit more than a ship sunk in a war zone to get a nation “wary of foreign entanglements” to jump into what was still seen as “Europe’s war”.

By the end of 1916, the German–led Central Powers had the decisive advantage. France had suffered terrible casualties, the British forces were neutralized by a German U-Boat blockade, and Russia was becoming embroiled in what would become an incredibly bloody civil war. No German lands were occupied whatsoever. It was at that point, the Kaiser made a peace offering on behalf of the Central Powers with no strings attached. However, the British Empire and those who were in control of it had another trick up their sleeve.

The Balfour Declaration was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur J. Balfour to Baron Walter Rothschild, banker, politician, and leader of the British Jewish community. The letter essentially sealed the deal in which the British government agreed to create a Jewish homeland in British-occupied Palestine in return for Rothschild utilizing his connections to mobilize the power and influence of Jewish community in the United States with the goal of getting the U.S. to enter the war on the side of Britain and her allies.

British Prime Minister David Lloyd George later stated to the Palestine Royal Commission in 1937:

In this critical situation it was believed that Jewish sympathy or the reverse would make a substantial difference one way or the other to the Allied cause. In particular Jewish sympathy would confirm the support of American Jewry, and would make it more difficult for Germany to reduce her military commitments and improve her economic position on the eastern front… The Zionist leaders gave us a definite promise that, if the Allies committed themselves to giving facilities for the establishment of a national home for the Jews in Palestine, they would do their best to rally Jewish sentiment and support throughout the world to the Allied cause. They kept their word.”

It was at this point the propaganda machine was turned on full force towards the American public. Jewish-American-owned media outlets like Reuters and the New York Times resurrected the Lusitania and hyped the supposed Zimmerman Note; which was an allegedly intercepted telegraph from Germany to Mexico asking for alliance if the U.S. entered the war; as an intention of Germany to war with the United States. The manufactured horror stories of German barbarism were mass-marketed for American consumption by the “father of public relationsEdward Bernays, nephew of the famed Jewish-Swiss psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud.

Two of American President Woodrow Wilson’s closest advisers, Felix Frankfurter and Louis Brandeis were avid “Zionists” and influential in convincing the President to act in favor of Britain and the Allies. In April of 1917, Wilson convinced Congress to issue a declaration of war, and two months later, he instituted a very unpopular military draft, attempting to rally young men to the cause of “freedom” by using Bernays’ slogan: “Making the world safe for democracy.”

In 1918, after a successful spring offensive, labor strikes organized by trade unions within Germany halted the supply of much-needed munitions to the front. This event would come to be known as The Stab-in-the-Back, by Adolf Hitler, a veteran of the war. By this time, much of Organized Labor within Europe had been permeated by Marxist ideology of the “liberation of the proletariat” as well as the Labor Zionism of Jewish-French-German philosopher Moses Hess. The organizers of these strikes were young Jewish “revolutionaries” who saw what was going on in Russia and sought to use this as an opportunity to create a “worker’s paradise” in Germany. It has been extensively documented and proudly admitted that Jews were well represented in every revolutionary organization at the time and continue to be so today.

Stab-in-the-back_postcard

By 1918, Russia had fallen completely to the Bolshevik Revolution organized by Russian Vladmir Lenin (whose grandfather was Jewish) and Jewish-Russians Leib Bronstein, aka. Leon Trotsky and Julius Cedarbaum, aka. Julius Martov. Funded out of London and Germany by the Rothschild and Warburg banking conglomerates in partnership with the Jewish-American Schiff banking family out of Wall Street. This revolution completely destabilized Russia (a wary ally of and historical adversary to the British Empire), resulted in the brutal murders of Czar Nicholas II and his wife and children, and culminated in what was known as the “Red Terror”- a period marked by mass arrests in the middle of the night, executions, and brutally bizarre methods of torture. These atrocities were carried out by the Jewish-Russian-runCheka”, i.e., secret police and resulted in the murder of as many as 100,000 Russians. When U.S. Ambassador to Russia, David Francis, visited in January 1918, he noted:

The Bolshevik leaders here (Russia), most of whom are Jews and 90 percent of whom are returned exiles, care little for Russia or any other country but are internationalists and they are trying to start a world-wide social revolution.”

The above statement illustrates what was one of the primary concerns/fears and motivating factors of Adolf Hitler in his dealings with Germany (and later Europe) and its Jews. This idea of the danger presented by the “International Jew” was also shared, oddly enough, by a man who would become one of Hitler’s primary nemesis- future British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. In his February 1920 article for the London Sunday Herald entitled “Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People”, Churchill spoke highly of Zionism and what he referred to as “National Jews”, who would say, “I am an Englishman practising the Jewish faith.

He saw the “National Jew” being contrasted by what he and many others referred to as “International Jews”:

The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt (founder of the nihilistic Bavarian Illuminati)  to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing… It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”

Unfortunately, the subversive activities of these “International Jews” became so intensified in Germany and throughout Europe just prior to and during the Second World War that Hitler and the NSDAP (Nazis) saw no other choice then to lock up ALL Jews who had remained in Europe into prison labor camps, regardless of whether or not they were practicing subversive tactics or not. The prison labor camps and the whole “Holocaust” narrative is of course, a deep topic in and of itself, and something deserving of an entire article devoted specifically to it. Again, the point here is to really flesh out some understanding as to why Hitler and the NSDAP espoused to the philosophy adhered to and enacted the policies they did, beyond the simplistic “scapegoat” and “world-domination” memes we are given in most high school and even college-level history books.

By the fall of 1918, the war had essentially reached a stalemate, with neither Germany nor the Allies being able to achieve a decisive victory. However, the internal social and political establishment of Germany began to crumble. Jewish-German Communists Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht founded the “Spartacus League“, which later became the Communist Party of Germany. Aided by Jewish-Hungarian Bela Kun, the group attempted to take advantage of post-war chaos and stage a coup in Berlin. Fearing the same fate as the Czar, Kaiser Wilhelm fled to Holland. While a group of veterans known as the Freikorps reclaim control, the Communists continually attempt to seize power.

The Allied powers took advantage of the internal destabilization that was taking place in Germany and did not invite Germany to take part in the Paris Peace Conference, where a series of treaties were devised to reorganize Europe and establish the world governing body known as the League of Nations– the precursor to the United Nations- which had been a primary goal of the war from the outset (although it soon dissolved due to nations like the U.S. refusing to ratify the treaty). It was out of this that the Treaty of Versailles was established which included the following provisions:

1. Germany accepts 100% responsibility for the war

2. German armed forces restricted to 100,000 men

3. The industrial German Rhineland will be occupied by French troops for the next 15 years.

4. Kaiser Wilhelm should be tried for “offenses against international morality”

5. The German region of West Prussia is carved out and given to the new nation of Poland. (Millions of West Prussians are forcefully expelled from their homes, and East Prussia is left isolated from the rest of Germany)

6. The German Sudetenland region is put under the rule of the new nation of Czechoslovakia.

7. The new state of Austria is forbidden from uniting with their Germanic brothers in Germany.

8. Germany is stripped of her African colonies. Britain, France, & Belgium take them over.

9. The coal-rich Saar region of Germany is placed under League of Nations control for 15 years. During this time, its coal is to be shipped to France.

10. The Baltic Sea port city of Danzig is separated from Germany and declared a “free city.”

11. Germany is forced to pay massive war reparations in the form of money and natural resources. The crushing debt payments, equal to 1 Trillion dollars in modern currency, will devastate the German economy and soon cause a hyperinflationary monetary collapse.

There can be no mistaking that the objective here was to literally rob Germany blind while demoralizing and economically crippling the nation so that it could not pose a threat to the hegemony of the Anglo-Zionist Financial and Corporate Empire.  This war was not about “spreading democracy”, it was economic power and control. After the war was over, President Woodrow Wilson confirmed this point:

Is there any man or woman let me say, is there any child who does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry? …This was an industrial and commercial war.

The methods of war have certainly changed greatly in the last 100 years since World War I (1914-1918), but the reasons have not. It’s funny how this is by and large a sort of “forgotten war” in the public eye (especially now that pretty much every veteran of WWI has passed). Many of us only know there was a World War I because Hollywood loves to make movies about World War II, and so we know there had to be a “one” before the “two”.  Now that we have set the stage, in part two, I will get into the rise of Hitler and the NSDAP, as well as some of the various narratives that surround this period of history that shaped the world as we know it today.
