“Here’s a young friend who one day will be a very important man.” – Dietrich Eckart
Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)
Widely considered the single most important figure of 20th century history as leader of the NSDAP and Chancellor of National Socialist Germany, as well as one of the most gifted orators ever to have lived, Hitler’s enigmatic character continues to fascinate the world. Having gone through villification by Zionists, wrongheaded praise by neo-Nazis and other racists, and outrageous speculations by occultists, esotericists and conspiracy theorists, Hitler has re-emerged at the beginning of the 21st century as the supreme symbol of defiance against Jewish power, a shining rolemodel for serious (ie. non-racist) anti-Zionists worldwide and a universal heroic icon able to unite non-Jews across colours, cultures, religions and all the other old lines along which Jews thought they could divide us in perpetuity. His rise to leadership despite humble origins and seemingly lackadaisacal early years gives hope to present-day dreamers whose idealism has not yet been recognized. His transformation of Germany within a matter of years from an economic wreck into the most powerful state in the world that took the combined military might of Britain, America and Russia to defeat inspires present-day activists to believe that miracles are possible, and even that the miracle of the swastika itself might not be over yet, so that it is still his flag rather than any other that we today have chosen to gather under.
“It was Hitler’s regime, Hitler’s policy, Hitler’s rule of force, Hitler’s victory, and Hitler’s defeat — nothing else.” – Hans Frank
Much scholarly research is available from many mainstream and non-mainstream sources on Adolf Hitler, the NSDAP, the Third Reich and WWII, which will therefore not be reiterated here. Instead, we suggest a more intuitive approach. As Hitler said himself: “To study history means to search for and discover the forces that are the causes of those results which appear before our eyes as historical events.” Applying this principle, to study Hitler means to understand the psychology that drove the historical decisions made by him during his life. Why did he make such a statement at such a timing? What considerations and reservations he did have in such a situation? What kind of people had he surrounded himself with at each stage of his life, and how did having to work with all of them affect his way of doing things? In whom did he confide his innermost thoughts, and to whom did he speak merely pragmatically? Who were his true friends, and who were merely career acquaintances?
Only via such an approach can we then imagine how Hitler might be responding to the current world situation had he been born in our era, and hence build a serious and confident movement inspired by his essential personality, as opposed to merely by his circumstantial actions. It is this which distinguishes the Aryanist movement from other post-WWII Hitlerist clubs that merely reiterate what Hitler said or did in his own vastly different era with little or no regard for context and present-day relevance.
Hitler’s birth certificate
“In my will it will one day be written that nothing is to be engraved on my tombstone but ‘Adolf Hitler’. I shall create my own title for myself in my name itself.” — Adolf Hitler
“In the times immediately after the end of the war people did not believe in the suicide of Hitler in the Bunker. In a survey conducted in the United States in 1947, seventy percent of those asked said they believed Hitler was still alive.” – Miguel Serrano
“I wanted to become a painter and no power in the world could force me to become a civil servant.” – Adolf Hitler
Throughout his life, Hitler regarded himself foremost as an artist, specifically a painter. As such, his paintings, sketches and other artworks should be considered one of the most important sources for comprehending the spirit of the man who gave birth to National Socialist Germany. Hitler did most of his painting during the years as an unknown and often impoverished youth between leaving school and joining the military upon the onset of WWI. This was also the period when he spent much time thinking about the world. In his own words: “During those years a view of life and a definite outlook on the world took shape in my mind. These became the granite basis of my conduct at that time. Since then I have extended that foundation only very little, and I have changed nothing in it.” A few themes are common throughout his paintings: bright light; near-absence of humans even in urban settings; abundance of green life; the simplicity of an agrarian landscape. One can see from his art that even before Hitler was formally a National Socialist, the spiritual qualities characteristic of Aryanism were present.
“Thinking that he was a house decorator, I said it would surely be easy to make money at this trade. He was offended and said he was not that sort of painter, but an academician and an artist.” – Reinhold Hanisch
The same core which formed his own artwork was gradually projected onto the aesthetics of first the NSDAP and then National Socialist Germany as a whole, in the latter case with the state and Hitler himself acting as patron to artists – many of whom were (or became) personal friends of Hitler - whose work attempted to embody National Socialist ideals and played a key role in inspiring the people with idealism. Hitler also remained an avid collector of artwork until the end of his life, primarily purchasing pieces that held deep sentimental or symbolic meaning to him personally, regardless of their academic reputation or market value.
We suggest that Hitler’s own artworks be studied first, and only afterwards the state-supported artwork of National Socialist Germany. It is also helpful to compare and contrast these with other popular artwork of the same period in other countries, especially those also involved in revolutionary movements and which also tried to use art to project their ideas, such as Bolshevik Russia, Fascist Italy, and many more. Some themes and motifs were used by all visual propaganda of the period, therefore are not necessarily representative of National Socialism despite being included in NSDAP propaganda. The themes most representative of National Socialism would rather be those which are not used in the propaganda of competing ideologies but which are exclusive to NSDAP propaganda.
“Any just evaluation of historical developments must make a differentiation between words spoken and acts performed during times of strife and war, and governmental measures carried out later by a victorious regime.” – Alfred Rosenberg
Besides being an artist, Hitler was a politician. This does not mean that his wisdom was inferior to that of a purely theoretical philosopher, but it means that he was required by profession to conceal, disguise or even grossly misrepresent his true beliefs and express instead whatever would motivate his audiences to quick action so as to further his cause. As such, his words cannot be considered but in context of the capacity and pre-existing biases of his various audiences, private as well as public. In his own confession: “All propaganda has to be popular and accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach;” and “A great and popular orator … will scarcely ever repeat the same argument or the same material in the same form on two consecutive occasions. He will always follow the lead of the great mass in such a way that from the living emotion of his hearers the apt word which he needs will be suggested to him and in its turn this will go straight to the hearts of his hearers.”
Many words attributed to him only appear in records that emerged after WWII, whose authenticity is highly suspect. And among his earlier writings, much was actually written (or in some cases copied verbatim from older tracts) by Rudolf Hess in Hitler’s name. Fortunately for us, Hitler’s writing style shares strong similarities with his speaking style. We suggest that by first becoming familiar with Hitler’s distinctive style of communication from his speeches, one can make an educated guess as to which parts of Hitler’s supposed writings were really written by himself and which were the work of others.
Towards the end of his career, Hitler often expressed a wish to retire peacefully and spend the last part of his life reading the books he had not had time to read in the past, and writing his true and final beliefs for posterity, atoning for the lies he had to tell during his political career. This wish was denied him by the Zionist Allies which declared war on National Socialist Germany, forced him to commit suicide, and shamelessly lied about him ever since. The truth of what Hitler believed will never be known for sure. It falls to us to fulfill his wish on his behalf using our own imagination.
“It’s against my own inclinations that I devoted myself to politics. I don’t see anything in politics, anyway, but a means to an end. Some people suppose it would deeply grieve me to give up the activity that occupies me at this moment. They are deeply mistaken, for the finest day of my life will be that on which I leave politics behind me, with its griefs and torments. When the war’s over, and I have the sense of having accomplished my duties, I shall retire. Then I would like to devote five or ten years to clarifying my thought and setting it down on paper. Wars pass by. The only things that exist are the works of human genius. This is the explanation of my love of art. If somebody else had one day been found to accomplish the work to which I’ve devoted myself, I would never have entered on the path of politics. I’d have chosen the arts or philosophy.” – Adolf Hitler
“Hitler is lonely. So is God. Hitler is like God.” – Hans Frank
“There is no question but that Hitler belongs in the category of the truly mystic medicine man. As somebody commented about him at the last Nuremberg party congress, since the time of Mohammed nothing like it has been seen in this world. His body does not suggest strength. The outstanding characteristic of his physiognomy is its dreamy look. I was especially struck by that when I saw pictures taken of him in the Czechoslovakian crisis; there was in his eyes the look of a seer.” – Carl Jung
“Hitler … bore pain without complaint even when there was no need to do so. Hence the surprise of Dr. Erwin Giesing at Hitler’s decision not to have anasthetics for operations. When Giesing operation on Hitler’s ear after the Stauffenberg attempt, Hitler merely requested that I should hold him down. “What my soldiers have to endure daily at the front, I must also be able to tolerate,” he said, and forbade all further discussion about the unnecessary pain.” – Heinz Linge
The many accounts of Hitler by his contemporaries, particularly those with whom he had some intimate relationship – from Degrelle through Speer to Bormann – often appear contradictory. An analysis of them in combination can make it seem that the truth lay not somewhere in the middle, but somewhere at all extremes. Accounts about Hitler are helpful when combined with his own words in order to sort through rhetoric, simplification and outright lies to find his core. While the primary accounts on Hitler are obviously biased, they are at least absent of the insidious opinion of secondary sources. Even if not written until long after WWII, or even if written under external pressure, they remain accounts by those who had first-hand experience with Hitler.
Hitler sometimes joked about the larger-than-life legend growing around him. In his words: “I’m going to become a religious figure. Soon I’ll be the great chief of the Tartars. Already Arabs and Moroccans are mingling my name with their prayers. Amongst the Tartars I shall become Khan. The only thing of which I shall be incapable is to share the sheiks’ mutton with them. I’m a vegetarian, and they must spare me from their meat. If they don’t wait too long, I’ll fall back on their harems!”
“[Hitler] relied on no previous esoteric current, and was not part of any – he was and is the current. This was why esoteric groups, including Thule, were banned in the Third Reich – they were not necessary, were irrelevant or were detrimental to the energies National-Socialism had unleashed and was using to re-shape us and the cosmos. In some ways, Thule helped prepare the way for Adolf Hitler – with his emergence, Thule was no longer necessary. … All esoteric groups which existed before Adolf Hitler are either now irrelevant, or, if they still exist, are now detrimental to future development.” – David Myatt
After an Aryanist base has been established, it is easy to read more widely (including both primary and secondary sources) about Hitler and be able to sort through what was merely the propaganda of National Socialist Germany and what is merely the continued propaganda of the victorious Zionist Allies. In Hitler’s words: “The art of reading and studying consists in remembering the essentials and forgetting what is not essential.” While one could spend an entire lifetime researching this period for historical purposes, it is not an ideological prerequisite. Ultimately, it is not Hitler who defines Aryanism, but Aryanism - UNITY THROUGH NOBILITY - which defines which Hitler we see and keep alive in our hearts. In Hitler’s words again: “Everything I am, I am through you alone.”
“Normally the great men that we admire from a distance lose their magic when one knows them well. With Hitler the opposite is true.” – Joseph Goebbels
