Adolf Hitler on 'Causes of the Collapse'

Chapter 10 – Causes of the Collapse – is a long chapter, about 50 pages. I  reproduce here the parts that I think are most relevant and essential, beginning with Hitler's introductory thoughts.

P 427

Only that which is capable of extraordinary heights can experience a profound decline or collapse. The collapse of the Reich [referring to the 'Second Reich' or reign of Hohenzollerns (1871-1918), initiated by Bismarck] was so difficult and terrible because it had fallen from a height that can hardly be imagined in these days of misery and humiliation [in 1925].

[T]his empire had not been brought into existence by a series of parliamentary maneuvers, but by reason of the noblest circumstances. Its foundations were laid not amidst parliamentary debates but with the thunder and boom of war along the front that encircled Paris. It was thus that an act of statesmanship was accomplished whereby the German princes and people established the future Reich, and restored the symbol of the imperial crown. Bismarck's state was not founded on treason and assassination by deserters and slackers, but by the regiments that fought at the front.

Adolf Hitler on 'War Propaganda'

Chapter Six is titled WAR PROPAGANDA. It contains the young Hitler's thoughts on Germany's failure to use effective propaganda against the enemy in the Great War, and compares it to the successful propaganda against Germany by the English in particular. This relatively short chapter contains great lessons for us in the fight against any enemy.

P347  6.1  THE PURPOSE OF PROPAGANDA

Germany was waging war for its very existence. The purpose of its war propaganda should have been to strengthen the fighting spirit in that struggle, and to help bring about victory.

But when nations are fighting for their existence on this earth, when the fateful question of “to be or not to be” must be answered, then all humane and aesthetic considerations must be set aside. These ideals don't float about in the air, but are the product of man's creative imagination; they disappear when he disappears. Nature knows nothing of them. Moreover, they are characteristic of only a small number of nations—or rather, of races—and their value depends on the degree to which they spring from the national or racial feeling. Humane and aesthetic ideals will disappear from the inhabited earth when those races that created and upheld them disappear.

Adolf Hitler on 'The World War' part 3

Hitler ends this chapter on the World War by describing why Marxism could not be defeated by Social Democracy, which he also did not like. His dismay at the outcome for Germany forced him to look for solutions and to consider going into politics after the war.

P333 5.8 THE USE OF NAKED FORCE

Naturally I was distressed at the half-measures that were adopted at that time; but I never thought it possible that the final consequences could have been so disastrous.

But what should have been done? Throw the ringleaders into jail, prosecute them, and rid the nation of them. Uncompromising military measures should have been adopted to root out [Ausrottung] this pestilence. Parties should have been abolished, and the Reichstag brought to its senses at the point of the bayonet, if necessary—or better still, immediately dissolved. […]

Of course, this suggestion would give rise to the question: Is it possible to eradicate [ausrotten] ideas with the sword? Can a worldview be attacked by means of force?

Adolf Hitler on 'The World War' part 2

In the following two selections from Chapter 5, Hitler points out how the defeatist elements in German society sought to undermine the war effort. These Jewish Marxist elements, because they were not stamped out, were able to bring about the post-war communist revolutions in Bavaria and elsewhere, and also World War II.

P329  5.6  ARTIFICIAL DAMPENING OF ENTHUSIASM

I was a soldier then, and didn't really want to meddle in politics—all the more so because the time was inopportune. I still believe that the humblest stable-boy of those days served his country better than the best of, let's say, our 'parliamentarians.' My hatred for those big-mouths was never greater than in the days when all decent men who had anything to say, said it point-blank to the enemy's face, or else, failing this, kept their mouths shut and did their duty elsewhere. Yes, I hated all those politicians. And if I had my say, I would have formed them into a labor battalion and given them the opportunity to babble amongst themselves all they liked, without offense or harm to decent people.

We now move on to Chapter 5: The World War. Hitler had been living and working in Munich for two and a half years when the war came. He tells how the situation appeared to him and how that led him to enlist at the first opportunity. His mistrust of the Slavs and dislike of multiculturalism continues to be part of his thinking.

P 321   5.2   THE GERMAN WAR FOR FREEDOM

The moment the news of the assassination [of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie -cy] reached Munich, two thoughts came into my mind. First, that war was absolutely inevitable, and second, that the Habsburg State would now be forced to honor its alliance. What I had most feared was that one day Germany itself, perhaps as a result of the alliance, would become involved in a conflict not directly caused by Austria. In this case, Austria might not be able to muster the will to fight on behalf of its ally. The Slavic majority in the empire would have immediately begun to undermine any such intentions, and would have always preferred to shatter the entire state rather than to aid its ally. But now this danger was removed. The old state was compelled to fight, whether it wished to or not.

Adolf Hitler on 'The Moment of Decay'

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2018-05-21 10:49

Continuing with passages from Mein Kampf, 2017 Thomas Dalton translation. See here.

In the following section, Hitler asserts that Germany bumbled into war in 1914 because it was weakened from being “eaten from within” by the spread of the Jewish Marxist Doctrine. We can recognize this as exactly what we have still been going though in both Europe and North America. It is an age-old problem. Considering Hitler's reference to Rome (see below – on p 309), it is what we've always been dealing with.

U.S. President Donald Trump is in no way responsible for it, though so many Whites want to point to him because of his support for Israel. We should remember the current administration in Israel is anti-Marxist, as is the typical sovereign racial state. We need to look beyond the easy targets to blame--and look to ourselves. The average American and European is very pro-Semitic and wishes to be tolerant. We need to take these words of Adolf Hitler to heart.

P 307  4.13  THE MOMENT OF DECAY

The belief that prevailed in Germany before the war—that the world could be opened up and even conquered for Germany through a system of peaceful commerce and a colonial policy—was a typical symptom that indicated the decline of those real qualities whereby states are created and preserved. [See my previous installment 'State and Economy.'] It also showed the decline of the insight, will power, and practical determination that belong to those qualities. The penalty for this, like a law of nature, was the World War, with its attendant consequences.

Why revisionism is an historical necessity

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2017-12-19 23:35

THIS ARTICLE WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL LIBERATION IN 1958, during the Cold War. Written twelve years after the end of WWII, it is still necessary reading today. I am posting the entire long article here because I think every word is valuable. I have taken the liberty of bolding some words and sentences that I think are particularly valuable. During this holiday season, take some time to read it, not necessarily all in one sitting. You will be immeasurably enriched and informed by it.

Harry Elmer Barnes (1889-1968) is pictured above in a portrait created for The Barnes Review magazine. He was one of the most influential American scholars of the twentieth century.

Revisionism and the Promotion of Peace

By Harry Elmer Barnes, 1958

During the last forty years or so [since 1918 -cy], revisionism has become a fighting term. To so-called revisionists, it implies an honest search for historical truth and the discrediting of misleading myths that are a barrier to peace and goodwill among nations. In the minds of anti-revisionists, the term savors of malice, vindictiveness, and an unholy desire to smear the saviors of mankind.

Britain's 100 year war against Germany documented

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2017-12-12 14:34

By Carolyn Yeager

THIS IS THE GREATEST 'OPEN SECRET' OF OUR TIME. The facts and the motivation are in plain sight, documented in sufficient detail, but the powers-that-be direct us to look the other way.

I have written and spoken in this space many times about the responsibility of the British for bringing about the wars that came to be called World War I and World War II—including an interview with Nick Kollerstrom about his wonderful little book of only 100 pages, How Britain Initiated Both World Wars. Nick goes as far back as 1905 when Edward Grey (shown left) first became British foreign secretary but does not mention the Saturday Review publications which are quoted here from 1895, 1896 and 1897.

The knowledge we gain from this article is that WWII was not carried on by Britain to destroy the threat of Adolf Hitler and “Nazism”, which clearly was no threat to Britain, but to destroy a trade and financial competitor—an idea carried over from WWI and earlier.

British Government to 'celebrate' centenary of the Balfour Declaration

The brief letter Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour (picutred) wrote to Lord Rothschild in 1917 which came to be known as the Balfour Declaration. Enlarge


By Carolyn Yeager

FAKE HISTORY IN THE MAKING. The 100TH Anniversary of the UK's Balfour Declaration is coming up in November this year.

The Zionists have put up a web site celebratebalfour.org which looks similar in layout to the World Jewish Congress web site. However, it's copyrighted to The Israel Forever Foundation. Conservative UK Prime Minister Theresa May has pledged her government will celebrate the occasion with “remarkable, tolerant” Israel and Jews worldwide.

Britain's Conservative Party has a group called the “Conservative Friends of Israel” (similar to the US Republican Party's Friends of Israel group). In a speech to the CFI in December, May called the fateful letter written by Conservative foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild in 1917 “one of the most important letters in history” which “demonstrates Britain's vital role in creating a homeland for the Jewish people.”

Nick Kollerstrom talks about his new book: "How Britain Initiated Both World Wars"

June 23, 2016

Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom talks with Carolyn about his latest book titled “How Britain Initiated Both World Wars.” The book began as a talk he gave, on two different nights, to a monthly meet group he belongs to in London, and it retains something of the conversational style. But the ideas it contains about who wanted war have been in Kollerstrom's mind for a much longer time. He said he was quite nervous about stating his ideas, especially  on World War II, to British people, and the fact that it was well-accepted by his group gave him the courage to publish it as a book.

The illustrated book is only 99 pages and the price only 4 quid (four English pounds) or $5 U.S. It's a bargain both in price and in the fact you get a good understanding of behind-the-scenes shennaigans without having to read 300 to 500 pages, or more. These wars were both tragedies that robbed Europe of it's self-confidence, as Nick explains in this podcast.

The book is available at Amazon. Nick's author page is here, where you can see the other books he's written. I did a previous show with Nick on his book Breaking the Spell. Visit his website at Terror on the Tube.
