Adolf Hitler on Propaganda and Organizaion

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2022-09-30 14:19

Chapt. 11  Propaganda and Organization

11.1  Organization is something that owes its existence to organic life, to organic development. […] One must take account of those human weaknesses that make men hesitate, especially at the beginning, to submit to a superior mind. For this reason it's advisable to sift through the gathering human material to look for leading minds. It sometimes happens that apparently insignifical men will nevertheless turn out to be born leaders.

Great theoreticians are only very rarely great organizers. The organizer must first of all be a psychologist. He must take men as they are … must not have too high or too low an estimate of human nature. Rarely is a great theorist also a great leader. ...An agitator who shows himself capable of transmitting ideas to the broad masses must always be a psychologist, even though he may only be a demagogue. …Being a leader means: to be able to move the masses. The gift of formulating ideas has nothing to do with leadership abilities.

Chapt. 9, Basic Ideas Regarding the Meaning and Organization of the S.A. (Part Three)

9.13 As an underlying principle in the SA's internal development, we decided to have nothing to do with the bourgeois type of defense organizations, and especially not with any secret organization. Rather, we decided the men should be perfectly trained in physical education, also instructed in the National Socialist idea [worldview] and finally, educated toward the strictest discipline.

9.14 In examining the question of the creation of defense leagues, I've not stopped asking: For whom am I training these young people? For what purpose will they be employed when they are called up? The answers to these questions provide the best rule for us to follow.

Chapt. 9, Basic Ideas Regarding the Meaning and Organization of the S.A. (Part Two)

9.8 The Revolution led to the enforced creation of a new power factor to ensure state authority—a worldview in direct contradiction to the former one. It was able to create a new army—limited externally by the peace treaties—that was subsequently transformed in spirit into an instrument of the new state conception.That the revolution as a political act succeeded was due to: 1) a paralysis of our conceptions of duty and obedience, and 2) the cowardly passivity of our so-called state-preserving (conservative) parties. [Mitch McConnell is the epitome of this in the US.]

Adolf Hitler on Basic Ideas Regarding the Meaning and Organization of the S.A. (Part One)

HI FRIENDS. Well, I stopped my summaries of Mein Kampf, Vol. II after Chapter 8 back in November 2020, took a break for Thanksgiving through New Year, after which the madness of January 2021 began, with the U.S. Capitol “riot” and the beginning of the criminal Biden administration taking center stage. Now that I've slowed way down on writing original commentary, and finished making much more of my site content visible and linked from the front page side bar (have you noticed?), I've decided to complete the special section on Mein Kampf (still so relevant today). So we begin with Chapter 9, Vol. II, using Thomas Dalton's side-by-side German to English translation (pictured here). Enjoy.

Chapt. 9, p 285 Basic Ideas Regarding the Meaning and Organization of the S.A. (Part One)

9.1 The three bases for authority in a state are popularity, power (force,) and tradition. Popularity alone is weak and must be bolstered with power. If these two are united, the authority becomes more stable and secure. An invincible foundation is laid by adding the authority of tradition.

Serious attempts in Canada to fight what's called 'rising antisemitism' with first law against 'Holocaust' Denial

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2022-05-01 18:36

By Carolyn Yeager

HAS ANYONE NOTICED A GROWING PROBLEM WITH ANTISEMITISM in Canada? I didn't think so.

There's absolutely no reason to pass a Holocaust Denial law in Canada, even less reason than in the United States. Jews officially make up 1% of the Canadian population and there is no history or evidence of anti-semitism over and above probably a few minor incidents now and then, as would be found for any particular religious, racial or political minority. I'm quite sure Germans have in the past been worse-treated in Canada than Jews ever have but they did not seek to have laws passed especially for their protection.

The evidence that this legislation is wanted, designed and promoted specifically by the Jewish community is overwhelming. Two separate bills are already before the legislature.

Revisionist news: Gunter Deckert dies; Ursula Haverbeck headed to prison ... again

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2022-04-12 22:40

Political activist and revisionist Günter Deckert in 2019 in London, looking hale and hearty.


By Carolyn Yeager

GÜNTER DECKERT PASSED FROM THIS FALLEN WORLD ON MARCH 31, 2022 AT AGE 82. I do not have any information as yet on the cause of death and do not know if it was preceded by an illness. He was, however, active in local political electioneering in his home city of Weinheim well into the month of March, so if he did fall ill, it was brief.

Günter was always a dynamic personality. He had a successful career teaching English and French in German high (upper level) schools and colleges for 20 years, from 1968 to 1988, and during that time he was a member of the NPD (National Democratic Party) and the 'Deutsche Liste.' He was National Chairman of the NPD from 1991 to 2005.

Ingrid Weckert considers 'Cui Bono?' – Who benefited from the Kristallnacht affair?

Early Jewish settlers in Palestine, here in a lumber warehouse, were welcomed by the Arabs. "When the Jewish settlers arrived and bought the land from the Turks, swamps were drained, plantations established, settlements built, and the beginnings of an industry created. The Arab population worked together with the Jews ..."

Psychological warfare operations explain the 'Kristallnacht' action

Psychological Warfare Division personnel looking over their work output and appearing quite happy with it. In fact, a certain lack of seriousness, even hilarity, pervaded these well-financed efforts, which we can more easily recognize today for what they are.

Damage from 'Kristallnacht' greatly overstated by world press

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2022-02-22 09:27

Pedestrians walk along a city shopping street taking subdued notice of the broken store windows--possibly even unaware of what was the cause of the damage. Even though much glass was broken, there was little looting. Most of the shops were insured so the problem was mainly for the insurance companies, to which Reichsminister Hermann Goering addressed himself in the following days and weeks.
