I am going to write a series of blog posts on The Great War, or World War I, as it is called. A period of time on which many a lie has accumulated, like layers of sediment, going back in time, a very long way indeed, it is for us ancient history, and I would point out the fact that Adolf Hitler speaks very little of history other than the The Great War and the events leading up to it. The Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries are largely unknown, times of almost mythological proportions, so distant and remote that they are the shifting mythical mists of the ancients, old and dangerous spectres, known only to the most penetrating of minds, minds that can even read mountains. So let’s begin with reading the Aryan Old Testament, Chapter V, The World War, Mein Kampf:
(I have added capitalization for emphasis)
“During the boisterous years of my youth nothing used to damp my wild spirits so much as to think that I was born at a time when the world had manifestly decided not to erect any more temples of fame except in the honour of business people and State officials. The tempest of historical achievements seemed to have permanently subsided, so much so that the future appeared to be irrevocably delivered over to what is called peaceful competition between the nations. This simply meant a system of mutual exploitation by fraudulent means, the principal of resorting to the use of force in self-defence being formally excluded. Individual countries increasingly assumed the appearance of commercial undertakings, grabbing territory and clients and concessions from each other under any and every kind of pretext. AND IT WAS ALL STAGED TO AN ACCOMPANIMENT OF LOUD BUT INNOCUOUS SHOUTING.
This trend of affairs seemed destined to develop steadily and permanently. Having the support of public approbation, it seemed bound eventually to transform the world into a mammoth department store. In the vestibule of this emporium there would be monumental busts which would confer immortality on those profiteers who had proved themselves the shrewdest at their trade and those administrative officials who had shown themselves the most innocuous. The salesman could be represented by the English and the administrative functionaries by the Germans; whereas the Jews would be sacrificed to the unprofitable calling of proprietorship, for they are constantly avowing being called upon to ‘pay out’. Moreover they have the advantage of being versed in the foreign languages. WHY COULD I NOT HAVE BEEN BORN A HUNDRED YEAR AGO? I USED TO ASK MYSELF. somewhere about the time of the Wars of Liberation, when a man was still of some value even though he had no ‘business’.
Thus I used to think it an ill-deserved stroke of bad luck that I had arrived too late on this terrestrial globe and I felt chagrined at the idea that my life would have run its course along peaceful and orderly lines. AS A BOY I WAS ANYTHING BUT A PACIFIST AND ALL ATTEMPTS TO MAKE ME SO TURNED OUT FUTILE.”
Well, that is the best introduction one can find to The Great War, an introduction from the pen of Adolf Hitler, as relevant now as it was then. And might I add, that these redactive efforts to transform Hitler into a peaceful Buddha, will be futile, all their efforts, as expansive and resourceful as they are will fail to make Hitler into another dumb idol, an eastern Buddha, soulless and spiritless and peaceful…for the dead letter of the word does not overcome the living Spirit of the Führer!
