I'm normally not big on sweets but April 20 only comes around once a year.
I'd like to take a moment and enjoy a big slice with all of my friends and comrades.
Here's to us, Here's to the future, Here's to der Führer!
88 and to all a blessed 4-20 for years to come.
Hi, I am almost finished reading this book
I think every white person should read it, it has some of everything,
including- Hitler- John Birch- George Lincoln Rockwell- Savitri Devi-
National Alliance- Turner Diaries- Cosmotheism- Bob Matthews-
Hunter- The fate of millions of Germans at the end of WWII-
Well, William Pierce admits he was not a "people person" and I am
not always impressed with his dvds, but he is a great thinker and
writer, he brings an almost all-encompassing crystal clarity which I
think our movement needs.
The other thing I am thinking about lately is I hope we in the movement
can put aside our religious differences, I myself can accept any religion that is not
Zionist or radical Islamic. Good luck to the NSM in LA! Hail victory!
I send this to show that the
white race is under attack, that extermination of our race
is being planned and implemented.
Hitler as Philosophe: Remnants of the Enlightenment in
National Socialism, by Lawrence Birken, 1995, Hardcover.

Hitler as Enlightenment Intellectual: The Enduring Allure
A specter is haunting the world -- the specter of
Hitlerism. That, in short, is the stern warning of this
provocative book, written by an Assistant Professor of
History at Ball State University (Indiana), and published
by Praeger, a leading US academic publisher.
In spite of decades of vehement vilification, says author
Lawrence Birken, Hitler's views have enduring and
dangerous appeal -- not because they are bizarre and
alien, but precisely because they are rational and well
grounded in Western thought. In particular, Birken
stresses, Hitlerism is firmly rooted in the rationalist
and scientific outlook of the 18th-century European
Enlightenment. This is not meant as a compliment, however;
the author is hostile to the West and its traditions.
Rejecting the American and Western historical legacy,
Prof. Birken openly calls for a new, racially homogenized
For more than half a century, Hitler and his views have
been ceaselessly demonized in motion pictures, on
television and in the print media. And yet, according to
Birken, the appeal of Hitlerism remains so potent that it
threatens the ideal of a racially "redefined" America of
"higher unity." As traditional standards and long-
established cultural, racial and religious values come
under ever greater attack, and as this country's racial
and cultural crisis becomes ever more acute, Birken fears
that those who are unwilling to accept the "redefined"
society that is developing in America and Europe will turn
in ever greater numbers to Hitler's alternative vision of
society. Hitlerism, Birken says, will loom ever larger as
a dangerously seductive "siren song."
'A Genuine Intellectual'
Scholars and others have made a major mistake in failing
to take Hitler seriously as a thinker, argues Birken, who
believes that the German political leader "must be
regarded as a genuine intellectual" on a par with Karl
Marx and Sigmund Freud. Birken's assessment is not as
startling as many might believe. As he notes, as early as
1953, British historian Hugh R. Trevor-Roper "evoked the
image of Hitler as a kind of synthesis of Spengler and
Napoleon, noting that of all world conquerors the German
leader had been the most 'philosophical'..." More
recently, German historian Rainer Zitelmann established in
a study of impressive scholarship that Hitler's outlook
was rational, self-consistent and "modern."
Although he is endlessly castigated as "the most notorious
racist of the twentieth century," Hitler's racial views
were actually quite in harmony with mainstream 19th- and
early 20th-century European thinking. "It should be
obvious," writes Birken, "that Hitler possessed a
'classical' theory of race which dovetailed nicely with
his classical notions of political economy."
Far from being aberrant or bizarre, his views on race were
consistent with those of most prominent Westerners in the
decades before the Second World War. And while Birken does
not specifically mention it, Hitler's racial views were
comparable to those of Thomas Jefferson, Theodore
Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Winston Churchill.
It is "of course, a great mistake to see anti-Semitism as
a rejection of Enlightenment values," writes Birken. "On
the contrary, the Enlightenment simply secularized rather
than destroyed traditional Judeophobia." (No Western
thinker was more outspokenly anti-Jewish than Voltaire,
the great French philosophe, who regarded the Jews as
"enemies of mankind.")
Hitler's attitude toward the United States was mixed. He
saw much to admire in 18th- and 19th-century America, and
as Birken notes, he praised this country's pre-1940s pro-
White racial policies, its restrictions on non-White
immigration, and its pioneering adoption of eugenics
But Hitler also saw ominous trends during the 1920s and
1930s. Echoing the views of American industrialist Henry
Ford, he was dismayed by the spectacular growth of Jewish
power and cultural influence, and regarded Franklin
Roosevelt's "New Deal" administration as a virtual
revolution in American life, through which Jews largely
usurped the country's traditional ruling class.
The defeat of Germany in 1945, Birken rightly notes,
"clearly marked a watershed" in world history, and
especially for the West:
In a real sense, Hitler's defeat implicitly became the
defeat of the European nation-state and the Enlightenment
values that underpinned it. Germany's heirs, the United
States and the Soviet Union, were both fundamentally
transnational, multiracial empires whose territories were
As a result, for half a century we have been living in
what Birken calls a "consumer capitalist" world in which
"the hierarchical order of sex and race which had
originally sustained bourgeois nationalism has been
disintegrating" and in which "the increasing
relativization of values is encouraged by the ever greater
globalization of the economy and consequent emergence of a
multinational business elite."
This new world order is less durable than it might appear,
says Birken. The recent collapse of the multi-ethnic,
multi-racial Soviet Union, he warns, portends similar
problems for the American empire. Even a mere contraction
of the economy could threaten "to dissolve the United
States into several races." In Birken's view, racial
nationalism threatens "the continued existence of the
United States." He warns:
What Hitler said in the thirties is thus what our
racial nationalists are saying today: namely, that a
genuinely inclusive multiracial nation violates the
natural order of things. The United States must either be
a white-dominated state or a collection of breakaway
republics made up of this or that group.
In short: if Hitler was right, America is an increasingly
unnatural and artificial construct that does not deserve
to survive, and will not survive.
Birken fears that Hitlerism will become ever more
attractive to those who reject today's supra-national
"consumer capitalism," and who resist the rapidly emerging
"genuinely inclusive multiracial" order. This alternative
vision has appeal beyond America and Europe, Birken
believes. As he notes, Hitler's fight against the British
empire -- a war he actually never sought nor wanted --
"won him <Hitler> the admiration of colonial peoples from
Ireland to India ...."
A New 'Cosmic' Nation
Birken concludes his book with a fervent call for "the
gradual formation of an American race as a higher
synthesis. Then the Americans will truly constitute a
universal or 'cosmic' people." In Birken's view, the "race
myth" and Hitlerism "will continue to tempt us" unless
Americans "can be given a genuine metaphysical
foundation." This "metaphysical foundation" must be to
"uncreate race" through massive racial mixing. Therefore,
Birken writes, "we should not be afraid of that dirty
little word, 'miscegenation'." (Consistent with this
vision, President Bill Clinton, in his much-discussed June
14, 1997, speech in San Diego on race relations, openly
proclaimed the goal of making America "the world's first
truly multiracial democracy.")
Given the reluctance of many Americans, particularly
conservative Whites, to warmly embrace this new
"universal" nation, Birken says "we must have an education
system that is able to instill this redefinition of
"Before we try uniting the world," Birken concludes, "let
us try uniting ourselves. Until we do so, the siren song
of Hitlerism will call to us."
To anyone who views the past with an open mind, history
demonstrates the utterly fantastic nature of the goal laid
out by Prof. Birken (and President Clinton) -- a vision no
less utopian than Marxian Communism. In any case, to meld
the American population into a "universal" racial-cultural
entity would require government repression on a scale
Few Americans today are able or willing to fully grasp the
enormous implications of the radical program that
intellectuals such as Birken (and political leaders such
as Clinton) are spelling out for our future. But once they
do (and as Prof. Birken fears) many will likely turn to
Hitlerism as an alternative to the official prevailing
ideology. The decades-long campaign of vilification of
Hitler and Third Reich Germany may actually contribute to
this by convincing millions of Americans that Hitlerism is
the antithesis of the Establishment's ideology, and thus
the only real alternative.
In spite of its defects, Hitler as Philosophe effectively
dispels some widely held misconceptions about Hitler and
Hitlerism, acknowledges the critical importance of the
race issue, and boldly spells out stark alternatives for
the future of America and Europe. For this the author
