Our Response to the Nordic Supremacists
book, Mosley - Right or Wrong?, Sir Oswald Mosley made
his views on race perfectly clear when he stated, “The first thing to note is
that races are different - I say different from one another, mark you, not superior to one another”.
Many misguided racial supremacists, have been led up the garden path, however, and had adopted the
concept of Nordic superiority and the absurd idea that only the Nordic is creative. The Scandinavians of the 9th century are
remembered as the feared Vikings of the seas but today are the pacifist exponents of democracy, pornography and liberalism.
Nordicism is a very narrow concept based more on sentimental attachment to the past than on any real scientific evidence.
They talk of “our Nordic race” when, in fact, Nordics are simply a type and not a race.
The idea that a Herrenvolk should
be characterised by blondness of hair, blue eyes and tallness of stature is a misleading interpretation of National Socialist
doctrine. This exaggerated Nordicism was promoted quite independently of the German NSDAP by the eccentric Hans Guenther.
Other Nordic theorists were even more barmy and an embarrassment to the National Socialist movement.
The nonsense that the Nordic
was a special gift of creation and that they even created Chinese culture was tame stuff compared to some of the wilder notions
in this superiority theory.
Would you believe that a Karl Weinländer proclaimed that an infusion of “Nordic blood”
promoted rapid good health, whereas, a transfusion of “Jewish blood” would kill a patient.
The idea that all creativity
stems from the Nordic would imply that anyone creative must be Nordic ... tall, blond and blue-eyed.
One could fill all the pages in this publication
with the names of the greatest in European history and very few would qualify as being Nordic. It is very easy to laugh at
this claptrap and, indeed, it has been jumped on by the Hollywood film mafia as representing the official race theory of National
Socialist Germany and thus a grotesque caricature.
It should be suffice to state that Hitler had no truck with these ridiculous theories
and talked only of ‘Aryans’ without being at all specific regarding physical type.
We can assume from that, that
he was referring to all Europeans, regardless of colour of hair and eyes or stature. He made this clear at Nuremberg at a
party rally in 1933 where he said, “We do not conclude from a man’s physical type his ability
but, rather, from his achievements his race”.
This is a far cry from the
rubbish involving cephalic indices and blondness.
An intelligent race theory requires a far broader perspective and an appreciation
of other races, people and civilisations. We share this planet with many diversely different groups of people with whom we
need to communicate and understand. To do otherwise is a great folly, for we would only isolate ourselves and reduce the chances
for greater opportunities in the wider world..
No race is inferior or superior to another. We must establish this fact if we are ever to be taken
seriously with a wider audience. That does not diminish the love and worth we place upon our own race, the European race.
We must acknowledge the great
achievements of other peoples down the ages and not insult them with nonsense about superiority.
The contributions of the early
Egyptians or the civilisations of Sumaria, of Babylonia, of Phœnicia or the Chinese, have been of immeasurable significance.
As Arnold Toynbee pointed out in his Study of History, the Nordics have contributed only
to four or five of Mankind’s twenty one great civilisations ... in contrast, the peoples of the Mediterranean have contributed
to ten. The Arab Empire extended from Spain right across to China while Europe lived in the Dark Ages.
The greatest empire builder
was the Greek [Macedonian] Alexander the Great who spread Greek culture to many parts of the world. He was undefeated in battle
and regarded as one of the most successful commanders in world history. Such was his fame, twenty cities he founded all bore
his name ... Alexandria in Egypt for one.
Many military academies around the world still teach his tactics.
But Alexander the Great was not a Nordic.
He was from the Mediterranean. The ancient Greeks were an ‘Aryan’ people whose achievements easily outshone those
of the Nordics. After all, Classic Greece is regarded, justifiably, as the cradle of European civilisation.
Dr Ludwig Eckstein
from the headquarters of the Reichsführer SS encapsulated this view
towards the end of the Second World War with:
“While supporting our own race and, if necessary, fighting against other
races to protect its right to exist, we should not overlook the fact that almost all other races display something in themselves
that is sound and biologically resolved and is therefore BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL and VALUABLE. ... each race carries first of all
the measure of worth in itself.
When once we understand this then we do not foster feelings of inferiority
in others, a consequence the hitherto existing race theories have too often achieved”.
This was a far more mature
approach to the race issue and a lesson many still need to learn today.
Hatred is borne of fear and has no place in our racial consciousness,
where we stand firm and confident regarding the great achievements of our own people ... no more than the achievements of
need to fear nothing when we adopt this maturity of thinking, for then other races and peoples would regard us with respect
while, at the same time, dealing a powerful blow at the mistaken and misbegotten slurs our traditional enemy has thrown at
Race is an ideal ... A
COMMUNITY OF BLOOD IN A COMMON HOMELAND.
It provides us with our character in a collective
expression. It is the same with all races and we must foster this ideal for all Mankind. Only then can some order be put back
into the world and our destiny as Europeans fulfilled.
