The Theology of National-Socialism
An Examination of National-Socialism, Christianity and Islam

David Myatt: The Theology of National-Socialism
(pdf)

The essay was written by David Myatt in 2003 during his campaign to bring National Socialists and Muslims together in order to fight what he perceived as their common enemy; that is, the Zionist State that occupied Palestine, and Zionist influence as manifest especially in the American government with their military, economic, and financial support of the Zionist State, and with their foreign policy of invading Muslim lands such as Afghanistan and Iraq. {1}

The essay was subsequently circulated by Reichsfolk – and by others, for example it appeared on the Историја и култу forum of the Srbija section of the Stormfront website in July 2003 – and built on and to some extent developed the ideas Myatt had expressed in his voluminous 1990s National-Socialist writings and pamphlets and which ideological writings, {2} many of which were published by George Dietz in his Liberty Bell journal, were described in an article about Myatt in the July 2000 issue of the anti-fascist Searchlight magazine as a revisionist version of Nazism.

As with those National-Socialist writings the essay was ideological and idealistic with Myatt attempting to provide some philosophical foundations for his vision of a modern and “ethical” National Socialism. It should be noted that since some of the writings Myatt references in his footnotes – such as Acausal Science: Life and the Nature of the Acausal and Surreal Science – are no longer available we have provided links to archive versions.

Given below are some quotations from Myatt’s essay.

Quotations from Myatt’s Theology of National-Socialism

Introduction

It is my view, which I have expounded in various writings, that National-Socialism is a complete and unique Way of Life – or Weltanschauung – with its own ethics, based upon the ideal of personal honour, and with its own Theology, based upon what I have called “The Cosmic Being”. This Being is not the same as the God of Christianity, nor the Allah of Islam […]

In many ways, my National-Socialist writings have evolved National-Socialism itself, presenting it as a complete Weltanschauung, and freeing it from the misinterpretations and anti-evolutionary concepts of the past […]

The Origin and Meaning of Life

The essential starting point for a Way of Life is to pose, and answer, the questions about the origin and meaning of life – or, more specifically, about our lives, as human beings on this planet we call Earth […]

For National-Socialism, the meaning, the purpose, of our lives is to further evolution: both our own, and that of our folk […]

The Cosmic Being

One crucial difference between Islam and Christianity is the concept of incarnation – of the supreme deity being, or possibly being, incarnate in the world, and in human beings. According to Islam, Allah is not and never can be incarnate in His creation: He is totally separate from, and totally untouched by, all Creation […]

Both Allah, and God, are regarded as being infallible, and perfect: completely evolved, and not subject to change.

In contrast, the Cosmic Being of National-Socialism is regarded as the Cosmos in evolution, with Nature representing one manifestation, one incarnation, of the Cosmic Being on our planet, Earth. Thus, the Cosmos Being is not complete, not perfect – but an evolving, changing, being – just as we ourselves are the Cosmic Being in evolution, and just as Nature is this being in evolution. That is, there is a symbiotic relationship between us, as individuals, as members of our folk, between us and Nature, between us and the Cosmic Being, and between Nature and the Cosmic Being. Nature is also a being: that is, some-thing which is alive, which changes […]

Prophets and Revelation

Both Islam and Christianity are revelatory religions, or Ways of Life. That is, they accept that Allah, and God, have sent Messengers and Prophets to guide us, and reveal truths, such as about how we should live, and what our laws should be. Thus, both Muslims and Christians accept that we must turn to a supreme being for guidance, for the final answers, for the truth […]

For National-Socialism, there is no revelation from a supreme being, and thus no belief in Prophets or Messengers, and no Holy Books. There is only a reasoned apprehension, an acceptance that our human nature depends upon being civilized, that is, upon us accepting the ethics of honour, and the idealism of loyalty and duty to our folk, Nature, and the Cosmos. National-Socialism accepts that we – as Aeschylus wrote – learn through the experience of suffering […]

The Ethics of Honour

The foundation – the essence – of National-Socialist ethics is the ideal of personal honour, manifest in a Code of Honour. Honour is accepted, by National-Socialists, as the foundation for their ethics because honour is regarded as one of the those qualities which make us human, and which enable us to achieve both excellence (arête, for the Ancient Greeks) and further evolution, for ourselves and our folk […]

The Concept of the Folk

The folk is considered, by National-Socialism, to be a manifestation, a presencing, of Nature, and thus represents Nature and the Cosmos in evolution. National-Socialism regards every individual as balanced between the past of their folk, and the future of their folk, and considers that their duty is to aid this folk, and thus Nature, in an honourable way.

National-Socialism conceives of our folk as a type of being – that is, it is a type of life, with its own character, nature, ethos. The health and welfare of this living being depends on us: on what we do, or do not do […]

Conclusion

It should be clear that there are fundamental, and irreconcilable, differences between National- Socialism, Islam, and Christianity. National-Socialism, as I have stated, is a complete Way of Life – independent from, and different from, other Ways […]

David Myatt And Reichsfolk

One question which we at Reichsfolk have been repeatedly asked since 2000 ev – and especially since 2012 ev – is why we publicize and use the National-Socialist writings of Mr Myatt given his conversion to Islam in 1998 ev and then his post 2012 ev development of his "philosophy of pathei-mathos" with his condemnation of German National Socialism and of Adolf Hitler.

Our answer, pre-2012, has always been along the following lines:

° That, in our opinion, his NS writings – such as those in the pdf collection the Selected National Socialist Writings Of David Myatt – are among the best modern writings about National Socialism and cement his reputation as “England’s principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution.” [1]

° Because even during his decade as a Muslim he not only such wrote gems as (i) Esoteric Hitlerism: Idealism, the Third Reich and the Essence of National-Socialism, and (ii) National-Socialism, Folk Culture, and a Muslim Khilafah (pdf) but also embarked upon a campaign to bring National-Socialists and Jihadi Muslims together in order to fight their common “Zionist” enemy. [2]

To which answer we, post-2012, have added the following:

° That we consider that he has in the words of JR Wright in her article One Man Above Time: David Myatt, Reichsfolk, Esoteric Hitlerism, and Savitri Devi (pdf) moved from living a practical “in Time” life to one that is totally “above Time”. [3]

° That in the context of Reichsfolk – with its emphasis on new, local, leaderless, folk communities as opposed to the concept of The State, and with the Reichsfolk emphasis on personal combat as opposed to impersonal war between States – Myatt’s criticism (i) of German National Socialism (predicated as it was on a powerful State and on kampf) and (ii) of Adolf Hitler, may well be valid since all “in Time” States and Empires and armies are, in the perspective of centuries, transitory, and since all leaders, however gifted and charismatic, are fallible and inevitably make mistakes and often commit the error of hubris. Was, for example, Hitler’s invasion of Russia a strategic mistake that inevitably led to the destruction of the Third Reich?

° That Myatt’s latest writings – such as his Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos and his Tu Es Diaboli Ianua – as well as his translations of classical ancient texts such as Sophocles and Aeschylus and his Corpus Hermeticum: Eight Tractates expound the pagan ethos that formed the genesis of our Western “Faustian” civilization.

Thus we consider Myatt as migrating – due to his pathei mathos – from an “in time” activist and ideologue to an “above time” philosopher and mystic. As Savitri Devi wrote in her Lightning And Sun:

“But there are also men ‘outside Time’ or rather ‘above Time’; men who live, here and now, in eternity; who (directly at least) have no part to play in the downward rush of history towards disintegration and death, but who behold it from above – as one beholds, from a strong and safe bridge, the irresistible rush of a waterfall into the abyss – and who have repudiated the law of violence which is the law of Time…..

But the salvation which the men ‘above Time’ offer the world is always that which consists in breaking the time-bondage. It is never that which would find its expression in collective life on earth in accordance with Golden Age ideals. It is the salvation of the individual soul, never that of organised society…..

Men ‘outside Time’ or ‘above Time,’ at the most saviours of souls, have, more often than not, disciples who are definitely men ‘against Time.’

No organisation can live ‘outside Time’ – ‘above Time’ – and hope to bring men back, one day, to the knowledge of the eternal, values. That, all men ‘above Time’ have realised. In order to establish, or even to try to establish, here and now, a better order, in accordance with Truth everlasting, one has to live, outwardly at least, like those who are still ‘in Time’; like them, one has to be violent, merciless, destructive – but for different ends.

Knowing this, the real men ‘above Time’ are the first ones to understand and to appreciate the wholehearted efforts of their disciples ‘against Time,’ however awful these might appear to ordinary people…. The fallen world can never understand them.”

Most people today apparently do not understand David Myatt, and perhaps never will. But we like to believe we do.

Zionism And The Zeitgeist Of The West

°°°°°°°°°

Zionism And The Zeitgeist Of The West

The actual zeitgeist of the governments of the modern West – as opposed to the imagined zeitgeist that many people seem to believe in – was evident in a recent event. Which event was the attack in May 2018 on unarmed Muslim civilians by the army of the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine and which attack resulted in 58 Muslims killed with over 2,000 injured. The Muslims were protesting at the American government moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in compliance to Zionist demands.

Officials of the American government failed to condemn the massacre of civilians, with the Zionists blaming Muslim “terrorists” for the violence, even though not one Zionist soldier was injured or killed. In addition, the governments of Europe merely expressed “some concern” at the events, although had some Muslims, somewhere in the world, killed 58 civilians and injured over 2,000, those governments would assuredly have stridently condemned such an attack, called it “an atrocity”, and demanded that the killers “be brought to justice.”

The zeitgeist is also evident in another recent event. The imposition by the government of America, again at the behest of the Zionist entity, of even more punitive sanctions on Iran with the excuse being to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons even though the Zionist entity has – in violation of international treaties – developed nuclear weapons and has not been, is not being, and will not be, subject to international sanctions for so developing such weapons.

       The zeitgeist is thus one of hypocrisy, of double standards, and of uncritical support – economic, financial, military, propagandistic and otherwise – for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine, with overt criticism of that entity and of its policies deemed to be, especially in European countries, “anti-Semitism” and regarded by all Western governments as “morally repugnant” and as “hate speech.” The career of any Western politician who dares to criticize, for whatever reason, the Zionist entity will be over, as the recent case of Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London, illustrates.

The new zeitgeist of the West is founded – as the Zionist entity was – on one modern legend and one old myth. The old myth is that God intended Palestine for those who consider themselves “the chosen people” and who thus regard themselves as the descendants of the Hebrew tribes mentioned in the Old Testament, and who sincerely believe that

                  “The Jews were chosen to act as pathfinders for the world, and Israel has a special place as an instrument to effect the Jew’s social engineering upon the world.” {1}{2}

The modern legend is of “evil Nazis” who persecuted and then deliberately exterminated millions of “the chosen people” leaving those who remained with a duty to emigrate to and settle in Palestine and thus force (or by various means persuade) the Muslims who lived there to leave.

This zeitgeist – and the uncritical support engendered, especially by both past American governments and the current government of America – has assured the present success of the Zionist entity, commercially, financially, economically, and military. A success and a zeitgeist evident, for example, in that the entity is now advertised and accepted as a “European-type” tourist destination for Western peoples and is included in the “Eurovision Song Contest” even though it is not, geographically, in Europe.

Yet successful as the Zionist entity now appears to be, what its government, and those in the Western governments who support it, forget or do not know – what those who resort to “in time” methods and tactics always forget or never seem to know – is the Aeonic, the “above time”, aspect and perspective. {3}

An Aeonic Perspective

Perceived Aeonically, the Zionist entity may well be successful, for a while: be it for some decades, be it for a hundred years or perhaps more. However, their success is dependant on the continuing support of America, on a continuing belief among the peoples of the West in both the legend of the holocaust, and in the myth supported by evangelical/traditionalist Nazarenes (especially in America) that their support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine is authorized by Nazarene Scripture which they believe revealed that their Nazarene God intended Palestine for those who consider themselves “the chosen people” as thus who regard themselves as the descendants of the Hebrews tribes mentioned in the Old Testament.

However,

§ Regarding American support, both the demographic and the belief of the people of America are changing. Demographically, the move is away from a White majority toward those hitherto ethnic minorities – the Hispanic and the Negro – who have an instinctive aversion to the policies and politics espoused by people such as The Vulgarian {4}. In terms of belief, it is estimated that, in America, every year around 3,000 Nazarene churches close due to falling congregations, with a 2017 study by the American based Public Religion Research Institute revealing that in 1996 around 65% of Americans identified themselves as White Christians while a decade or so later only 43% did so.

Thus it is reasonable to conclude that in a hundred or so years time the people of America, and their beliefs, will be different from that of today, with there being no guarantee of American support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine.

§ Regarding belief among the peoples of the West in the legend of the holocaust, although it is likely that over the next three or four decades more Western lands will introduce Zionist-supported tyrannical laws making questioning “the holocaust” a criminal offence punishable by imprisonment, the history of Western peoples over the last three millennia reveals that rebellion against tyrannical laws is inevitable, sooner or later, be that later a century or more. For every tyranny, every Empire, has its day with none, in the entire history of humanity, lasting more than three or four centuries. There is always a revolution or rebellions; there is always the death – from natural causes or otherwise – of a tyrant or potentate; there is always a change of government; always the removal, the overthrow – violent or otherwise – of a ruling cabal. And there are always new ideals, new ideas, new ways of living, which replace – gradually or otherwise – the old.

§ Regarding the belief among Nazarenes that support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine is authorized by Nazarene Scripture, the Nazarene religion itself is currently threatened by the spread of Islam which of course is why the Zionist entity – and supporters of that entity, such as the current American government – have waged and are waging both a propaganda and an actual or a proxy or an economic war against Muslim influence in the Middle East and elsewhere: such as in Afghanistan (actual war and invasion), Iraq (actual war and invasion), Syria (proxy war), Yemen (proxy war), Iran (economic war and agitation for regime change), Sinai (proxy war), Rakhine State (proxy war), Somalia (proxy war).

While Zionist and Western propaganda describes this war against Muslim influence as a “war on terror” it is in reality – as the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan has revealed – a war against Muslims living without Western influence and according to Shariah in their own lands. The hypocrisy of calling it a “war on terror” is evident in the fact that Western wars and invasions and proxy wars, and the Zionist entity, have killed far more Muslim civilians – tens upon tens of thousands – than Muslim “terrorist” groups have killed Western civilians and residents of the Zionist entity.

Zeitgeist Of The West, Heresy, And The O9A

That the original zeitgeist of the West has been replaced by the aforementioned Zionist-loving zeitgeist was explained in Myatt’s 1984 essay Vindex: Destiny Of The West {5}. In that text Myatt described the replacement zeitgeist as Magian and concluded that National Socialism – what it actually was, not what Zionist propaganda and the modern legend of ‘the holocaust’ has made it appear to be – was an expression of the original, Faustian, zeitgeist of the West, and that

                  “in its relation to what we have called the ethos of the West, National-Socialism, from its very beginnings in Munich in 1919, stands as an embodiment of that ethos. National-Socialism was a resurgence of basically Faustian values over and above the cultural dominance of the Magian.”

That National Socialism – correctly perceived and understood, as for example by means of the life and writings of Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle {6} – is now a modern heresy, with promotion of such heresy and denial of modern legend of ‘the holocaust’ made illegal in several European lands, should be obvious.

Enter, into this heretical milieu, the esoteric Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA). Which modern esoteric movement {7} has antinomian Insight Roles {8} some of which involve supporting National Socialism and denying the modern legend of ‘the holocaust’, and which esoteric Order

                  “has always praised the warrior ethos, Hitler, and the Waffen-SS, and propagated the Vindex mythos, and emphasised the idea of a Galactic Imperium; and why the O9A values, and emphasises, both ‘the clan’ and ‘the tribe’ and such pagan ancestral European traditions as the Rounwytha.” {9}

In addition, the O9A has always promoted the idea – founded on scholarship – that

                  “as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan – (i) hasatan – the satan – refers (in the Septuagint) to the chief adversary (of the so-called ‘chosen ones’) and to the chief schemer against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah, and (ii) “a satan” historically (in the Septuagint) refers to someone who is an adversary of and who thus is pejoratively regarded (by those so opposed) as scheming, as plotting against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah.” {10}

That this heretical understanding of Satan and of Satanism has been usurped by the Media-supported egoistic, Magian, ‘satanism’ manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey (the Yahoudi, a.k.a. Anton Szandor LaVey) – and accepted by most self-described “neo-nazis” as defining Satanism – should be sufficient of itself to understand (i) how the Faustian zeitgeist of the West has been replaced by one based on a modern legend and an old myth, and (ii) what the O9A with its Aeonic understanding, its “sinister dialectic”, and its practical dangerous heresy, is all about, and (iii) why that acausal “sinister dialectic”, undermining as it does the status quo, is based on the knowledge, the wisdom, of the inevitable decline and fall of those individuals – and of those governments and entities – who are “in time” and who thus are enamoured of, and by, simplistic causal abstractions.

A Different Perspective

odal3

The essays which make up the document titled Regarding Western Paganism And Hermeticism {1} seem to me to point to a truth which is both relevant and controversial.

The document is relevant because of how our Western culture is mis-understood even by many native Europeans, and also because that culture is under attack by those – now often government supported – advocates of a ‘multi-cultural society’ with public advocacy of one’s own native culture being (if, that is, one is of European descent) frowned upon and even in some European lands outlawed because deemed by certain governments to be “hate speech”.

The document is controversial because it describes a culture which most modern political advocates of Western culture – of Western ‘civilization’ – will be unfamiliar with, fixated as so many of such political advocates seem to be with the mistaken belief that Christianity is the embodiment of that culture.

However, as described in that document – and in the texts referenced therein – Western culture is essentially pagan and derived from the culture of ancient Greece and Rome with Christianity thus understood as a Hebraic intrusion.

The document thus provides an entirely new – perhaps even a heretical – perspective on Western culture as well as referencing texts, such as David Myatt’s Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos and his Tu Es Diaboli Ianuas which, with their focus on such things as καλὸς κἀγαθός, metaphysically evolve Western paganism beyond “mythoi and anthropomorphic deities (theos and theoi) to an appreciation of the numinous sans denotatum and sans religion.” {2}

There is a cultural revolution in the truths embedded in Regarding Western Paganism And Hermeticism and in the texts referenced therein. But whether such truths can replace the prevalent and mistaken belief that Christianity is somehow the embodiment of Western culture remains to be seen.

A Review of The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt by JR Wright & R Parker

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt
(pdf)
From National Socialism To The Philosophy Of Pathei-Mathos

Available as a Gratis Open Access pdf file this slim volume of 55 pages is by the authors of The Mystic Philosophy Of David Myatt (1) which was published last year and which provided a reasonably comprehensive – and currently the only available – analysis of Myatt’s philosophy of pathei-mathos, which analysis is no easy feat since Myatt himself admits that he is “aware that the ‘philosophy’ of pathei-mathos, as described in works such as The Numinous Way of Pathei-Mathos and scattered in numerous other essays is not expounded as clearly and precisely as it could and perhaps should be.” (2)

The first part of The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt deals with Myatt’s criticism of National Socialism and Hitler, spread as that criticism was over a period between 2010 and 2012. The authors use the same methodology as in their The Mystic Philosophy Of David Myatt, which is to provide extensive and relevant quotations from Myatt’s works and then comment on them.

This approach illustrates not only how Myatt’s thinking evolved as he developed and refined his Numinous Way during those years, but also the criteria he employed; in the process also revealing Myatt’s detailed understanding of National Socialism and the interesting fact that his criticism was framed by the pagan spirituality of ancient Greece, that is, in terms of hubris, the classical Fates (Moirai) and the Ἐρινύες. In an illuminating footnote the authors write that Myatt “expresses in his intellectual way the irony, the tragedy” by placing in context the Greek quotation the philosopher Martin Heidegger used in his 1933 speech at the University of Freiburg.

The second part deals with Myatt’s latest book – Classical Paganism And The Christian Etho – and while it is a useful summary of that book there is no detailed analysis of Myatt’s assumptions and conclusions. For example, whether or not Myatt is correct in his statement that the ethics of Greek and Roman paganism can be summarized in the phrase καλὸς κἀγαθός, or whether or not Homer’s Odyssey is “redolent of the classical paganus ethos”, and whether or not Christian ethics are indeed based on “the example of the life of Jesus of Nazareth as depicted in the Gospels.”

The second part also does not in our view unequivocally answer the question that the authors asked at the end of part one, which was whether that book by Myatt marks “a return to his earlier folk culture”, with that folk culture being – in their words – “”mostly but not always just his ‘ethical National Socialism’ of Reichsfolk with the term ‘folk culture’ replacing the term ‘national socialism’ and with references to Hitler and the Third Reich removed.” All they say in answer is that “there are no such links” to and nothing redolent of “Myatt’s old ‘folk culture’ world-view.”

Well over half the book is taken up with four old essays by Myatt, the most interesting of which is Three O’clock One English Morning – written in 2010 – in which he gives details both of his motivation as a National Socialist and the tactics and strategies he employed in his three decades as a violent political activist. These four essays by Myatt, and the one by Ms Wright with the intriguing title David Myatt, Reichsfolk, Esoteric Hitlerism, and Savitri Devi, are however – as the authors claim in their Preface – useful resources for those interested in or researching “the life of David Myatt and of how and why he developed his philosophy of pathei mathos.”

The book, despite its deficiencies, is a useful addition to the literature about Myatt given that Myatt’s life and writings continue to interest certain individuals, with some of those interested influenced by or identifying with various modern Western sub-cultures – such as the Order of Nine Angles, the Occult Left Hand Path, Esoteric Hitlerism, Reichsfolk, NRx – while others (currently, an admittedly miniscule and heretical minority) see in Myatt something Faustian and ineluctably redolent of that strange dichotomy between Light and Dark, Numinous and Sinister, between Apollonian and Dionysian, between The Scholar and The Activist, between The Monk and The Warrior, between Honour and Dishonour, between The Wisdom of Pathei-Mathos and The Reckless Promethean Quest, that lie at the heart of – which are – the ethos and the mythoi of the culture of the West.

The Fourth Reich

odal3

Editorial Note. Republished here is the Introduction to the comprehensive Constitution of The National-Socialist Reich which David Myatt circulated in the late 1990s when he was involved with and producing propaganda for Combat 18. The Introduction is a précis of National-Socialist ideals and beliefs.

Although no author is given, it is widely believed that Myatt himself was the author given the occurrence of such themes as ‘the numinous’ and the emphasis placed on honour, with the Constitution itself being one of the most detailed contemporary expositions of National-Socialism and thus regarded as the theoretical basis for the Fourth Reich; that is for the Western Imperium theorized by F.P. Yockey, and also by Myatt in his 1980s text Vindex: Destiny Of The West, available here: https://regardingdavidmyatt.wordpress.com/myatt-vindex-destiny-of-the-west/.

While many of Myatt’s NS writings are idealistic, often propagandistic, and thus vague on practical specifics, the Constitution of The National-Socialist Reich gives precise details regarding the practical implementation of Myatt’s ‘revisionist version’ of National Socialism: from the economy, to the type of government, to the judiciary to foreign policy.

How realistic such theorized practical implementations would be were a National Socialist or neo-fascist movement ever to obtain State power is another question, especially as many of those theorized implementations are exceedingly idealistic in a typical Myattian way. Nevertheless, and insofar as we are aware, no other contemporary neo-nazi document goes into such practical detail thus making it a valuable resource for those studying or interested in neo-nazi ideology, in extremism and/or in the life of Mr Myatt.

°°°°°

The Constitution of the NS Reich exists to create, maintain and advance the cultural, social, political, and economic institutions of a society based on National-Socialist ideals and principles: ideals and principles which represent the honourable aspirations of National-Socialists world-wide.

National-Socialist Government

The purpose of a National-Socialist Government is to protect, maintain, advance and enhance in a positive and noble way, the people, their culture, their way of life, their separate racial identity, and the land where those people dwell.

The Form of Government in National-Socialism

According to National-Socialism, government does not exist to impose the domination of one individual or group over others for the benefit or purpose of that individual or group. Rather, government represents the collective political ideal and will of a people who share a common culture, a common outlook, and a common racial heritage.

A government must take an organized form in order to begin the process of social, intellectual, spiritual and ideological evolution towards the final goal, which National-Socialism perceives to be continuing the work of Nature. The purpose of the Constitution is to establish and make real the objectives of the National-Socialist movement and to create conditions conducive to the development of individuals in accordance with the noble and idealistic values of National-Socialism.

Thus the Constitution abolishes all forms of intellectual, economic and social tyranny, and aims to return the destiny of the people to the people themselves in order to completely overthrow and do away with all types of oppression and injustice.

In creating, on the basis of National-Socialist philosophy and ideology, the political infrastructures and institutions that are the foundation of society, only the honourable and noble will assume the responsibility of governing and administering the new National-Socialist community. Legislation setting forth regulations for the administration of society will be based upon the concepts of personal honour and duty to the folk before self-interest.

In particular, the aim of a National-Socialist government is to encourage the noble change and further evolution of human beings in such a way that they progress upward towards a more noble way of living and the establishment of a noble and just order. This involves creating favourable conditions for the emergence and blossoming of the innate nobility of individuals, and encouraging and developing their talents and abilities, so that the numinous dimensions of the human being are manifest and made real, thus enabling the creation of a new, and higher, civilization. This goal cannot be attained without the active and willing participation of all members of society in the process of social, cultural, political and spiritual development.

Accordingly, the Constitution provides the basis for such participation by all members of society at all stages of the political and social decision-making process on which the destiny of the community depends. In this way during the struggle towards the new civilization, each individual will be involved in, and responsible for, the growth, advancement, and leadership of society. In this willing and committed involvement lies the realization of the noble ideal of fulfilling our noble Destiny as human beings, in accord with the laws of Nature: that is, in harmony with our fellow human beings and in harmony with the other life with which we share this planet which is our home.

The Economy is a Means, Not an End

In respect of the economy, the fundamental principles will be the fulfilment of the material needs of the members of the community in the context of the good of the community and the good of the land itself.

This principle contrasts with other economic systems, where the aim is concentration and accumulation of wealth and the making of profit. In materialist schools of thought, the economy is an end in itself, so that it comes to be not only a subversive, decadent and tyrannizing factor in the life of the community, but also the destroyer of Nature: a destroyer of what is numinous, and thus the destroyer of what is important for our humanity. For National-Socialism, the economy is a means, and one which is be employed in a noble way to ensure the well-being of both the community and of the land itself, on which the community depend not only for sustainence but equally important for what is numinous.

It is one of the duties of a National-Socialist government to provide all members of the community with equal and appropriate opportunities, to provide them with work, and to satisfy their essential needs, so that their basic well-being is assured.

Woman and the Constitution

Through the creation of a National-Socialist social infrastructure, it is essential that women should regain their natural rights and duties, considering the commercial, social, and political exploitation that they suffered under other political systems.

The family is the fundamental unit of society and the foundation for the noble growth of human beings. Compatibility of husband and wife with respect to belief, ideals, culture and racial heritage, is the prime consideration in the establishment of a family. It is the duty of the National-Socialist government to provide the necessary services and structures for the attainment of this goal.

The necessity and importance of the family in the life of the community and in the creation of a better, more noble, way of life, gives women special rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities in a National-Socialist society. Not only does a woman thus recover her special, momentous and precious function of motherhood – the nurturing of noble and honourable human beings – she also assumes a pioneering social role and becomes the companion of her man in all areas of life. Given the heavy and noble responsibilities that woman thus assumes, she is accorded great respect in a National-Socialist society.

A New Army

In the formation and equipping of the country’s defence forces, attention must be paid to honour, nobility and the idealistic principles of National-Socialism.

Accordingly, the Armed Forces are to be organized on a National-Socialist basis, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the community, but also for fulfilling the noble mission of creating a new civilization where nobility, personal honour and reverence for Nature exists. That is, they will also be responsible for undertaking the National-Socialist mission to the rest the world

The Judiciary in the Constitution

The judiciary is of vital importance for safeguarding the rights of the people in accordance with the principles of National-Socialism, and for safeguarding National-Socialism itself. Provision has therefore been made for the creation of a judicial system based on the ideal of personal honour, and operated by just and noble judges who have proven themselves to be both fair and honourable.

Executive Power and the Leadership Principle

Considering the particular importance of the executive power in implementing the laws and ordinances of National-Socialism for the sake of the community, and considering also its vital role in the attainment of a new civilization, the executive power must work toward the creation of National-Socialist society. Consequently, the confinement of the executive power within any kind of complex and inhibiting system that delays or impedes the attainment of this goal is rejected. Therefore, the system of bureaucracy, the result and product of old forms of government, will be removed, so that an executive system based upon the leadership principle can be created.

Mass-Communication Media

The mass-communication media (radio, television, cinema, newspapers and so on) must serve the cause of National-Socialist culture and adhere to the National-Socialist principles of honour, reason, duty to the folk, and the pursuit of excellence. To this end, the media can and should be used as a forum for a reasoned and balanced encounter of different ideas, but must refrain from the diffusion and propagation of decadent ways of life, and anything which is irrational, dishonourable, ignoble or which undermines the duty individuals have to their folk.


Concerning Reichsfolk

Editorial Note: Given numerous requests over the years for interviews, for personal meetings, for contact details, and for information about Reichsfolk other than what has already been made publicly available, RS has submitted the following statement to clarify the matter. Until recently Reichsfolk maintained an irregularly monitored contactable e-mail address which was sometimes relayed to those who displayed an interest and which was primarily used to explain the nature of Reichsfolk, as described in the following statement. This e-mail address, however, was suspended by the e-mail provider for ‘violation of their terms of service’ and, in the foreseeable future, Reichsfolk will remain publicly un-contactable.

°°°°°

While Reichsfolk is “a social, educational, cultural, and spiritual, movement based upon and dedicated to disseminating the noble principles of ethical, non-racist, National-Socialism,” {1} it is not a movement – political or otherwise – seeking to publicly recruit members or to continually distribute propaganda or to have a public face. Its commitment is to personally, directly, introduce individuals to the civilized reality of National-Socialism, and to strive to implement the idealism of National-Socialism in practical ways. The former means being clandestine; the latter means individuals and families, on their own or in very small numbers, living in a way consistent with National-Socialist ideals with no outward show of or profession of National-Socialist beliefs, and with this sometimes involving a family, or a few families, living in a usually rural environment as a ‘family community’ or as a kindred of two or more families. In both cases intrusion by ‘outsiders’ – for whatever reason, political or otherwise, and from whatever motive – is considered undesirable.

In regard to Reichsfolk literature, sufficient has been produced {1}{2} for others to understand what has been termed ‘non-racist National-Socialism’ and to, if inspired, form their own ‘family community’ or kindred. Which independent, unconnected, formations and their growth over the years and the generations is how Reichsfolk envisages its ideals – and thus a modern National-Socialism – will be gradually implemented in these times (i) of overt persecution of those publicly espousing National-Socialism, and (ii) of overt persecution of those who either question the veracity of what has become known as ‘the Shoah’ or who believe it is a myth, as we do.
