Hermann Goering, 1923

Plain speaking.

In Hitler: The Path to Power, we read this from Goering (1923):

The most vigorous forms of terror must be employed; anyone who creates the slightest obstruction must be shot.  It is essential that the leaders decide now which individuals must be eliminated. As soon as the decree is issued at least one person must be shot immediately as an example.

A few years earlier, a Major Schulz unburdened himself thus, during the right-wing takeover of Munich after the brief Marxist regime there:

It is a lot better to kill a few innocent people than to let one guilty person escape….

All this is being presented in the interest of historical study only.  As a pacifist blog, EGI Notes in no way suggests that a future White ethnostate should follow such precepts; indeed, such would be denounced most vigorously!

Hitler Quote: Fascist Dictatorship in Germany

From the very mouth of Saint Adolf.

From Flood’s Hitler: The Path to Power, a Hitler quote from 1923:
Germany’s hope lies in a Fascist dictatorship, and she is going to get it…

Adolf’s talking about himself and the NSDAP here. Contra to the idiots who believe there is no connection between national socialism and fascism, even the Sainted One himself understood that national socialism was a variant of the broader “fascist species.”

Lunatic Raging With Frenzy

As Nietzsche would say: you need some chaos within you if you want to be a dancing star.

In Flood’s book, Hitler: The Path to Power, there is an amusing quote from a Professor von Muller, describing the reaction of 54-year old Dietrich Eckart to a speech by Hitler in the early 1920s:

After one of Hitler’s orgiastic cascades he jumped onto the table with a fiery red face screaming his song “Deutschland Erwache!” frantically…while a brass band performed the music roaringly: it was the picture of a lunatic raging with frenzy.”

I wholeheartedly approve of Eckart’s reaction.  What we need are more White men acting like a “lunatic raging with frenzy” and fewer of them being passionless, over-rational, effete pansies.
Now, my critics will accuse me of hypocrisy, not understanding my point.  They will say, “Hey, you routinely criticize ‘Nutzis’ and other ‘movement’ extremists and their reckless actions and stupid atomized violence, and now you are promoting ‘lunacy’ and ‘raging with frenzy.”
My response is that you cannot conflate Eckart’s reaction with some Nutzi or neckbeard doing something foolish.  After all, when Eckart was finished singing like a lunatic, what did he do?  Did he shoot up a beer hall?  No – he used whatever abilities and influence he had to support Hitler politically (up until their falling out, but that’s an irrelevant matter). 
One can be a “lunatic raging with frenzy” while, at the same, time being disciplined and focused, and channeling all that “raging frenzy” into political activism, like Eckart did.  The approval of “lunatic raging frenzy” is an approval of an attitude, not promotion of any specific activity.

It is a call to White men to sometimes heed the call of the blood, to follow irrational impulses to achieve rational goals, to unleash chaos in the service of ultimate order.

Hitler: The Path to Power

A good book. 

I am re-reading Flood’s book about Hitler’s early years (up to his release from prison after the aborted putsch).

This is an excellent, reasonably objective (only a small bit of pointing and sputtering at Hitler’s views and actions, although those instances, where they do occur, seem like the author desperately – and amusingly – trying to establish his anti-Hitler bonafides), well-researched book, and I recommend it to those interested in Hitler, history, and/or national socialism.

The book also truthfully describes Hitler’s excellent record as a solder in WWI, in contrast to modern revisionist attempts to discredit Hitler’s performance.  Say what you will: Hitler was a fervent supporter of Germany’s entry into WWI, and he fought in that war. Contrast that to today’s levantine Neocons, who love to start wars that other folks have to fight. I don’t quite remember any of the Necons riding into Baghdad on top of a tank…

I have been critical of Hitler and of the “movement” Cult of Saint Adolf, and I will continue to be so. However, one must state an obvious fact: Hitler was a great man, a world historical figure, an interesting individual of great talents and high intelligence, and he was right about 90% of things. If only he had concentrated more on domestic German affairs and pursued in foreign policy a Fascist International approach rather than military hegemony, if only that 10% of error were not so glaring, then I would be able to have a more positive appreciation of his role in White history.
