Editorial Note: We reproduce here an interesting article which mentions David Myatt in relation to such modern mystics as Julius Evola. It seems that a few select individuals actually do appreciate Myatt’s contribution to Western (esoteric) mysticism.

Brutalism I
The almighty Sol

I have just finished my artistic exploration of the Sphere of Venus as part of my intent to symbolize the whole Tree of Wyrd, as a sign of my dedication to the Sinister Tradition.

A lot has already been written about the Sphere of Venus, the astrological aspects of Venus, so no need to copy them. Also the Sphere of Venus has already been described in the Mss of the ONA. There are a few things I have personally added through my exploration of its singular power.

First of all, and part of the exoteric strategy of the ONA, the reference to one of the most ancient symbols of the West, namely the magickal script of the Runes. Specifically for Venus I have drawn the Othala and Fehu Runes.

Fehu

Fehu, of course, as the Rune of Freya, the most powerful goddess of love, war and sexual attraction of the Northern pantheon. Fehu’s energy stands for the Will-to-Power, Sexual power, Feminine and matriarchal Power. The Rune itself means ‘cattle’ and stood for mobile wealth. But I prefer not to pay attention to the ‘materialistic’ connotation of this Rune as materialism is already the main focus in the West nowadays. The Rune’s spiritual power lies however in the energy, the transference from the acausal to the causal through Love/agape, in the ability to feel empathy, to feel connected with your folk around you, good friends, soul mates, between lovers but also the connection with Nature, your Heimat. This also denotes wealth, but a spiritual one. Being, as Heidegger wrote, is always a being there (Dasein) as we are thrown into this world (Gefallenheit) we are here with others and the Other. There is the transference of energy, of experiences which we are building on and how we shape who and what we are at this moment, but always with a higher aim. For those who are able to ‘feel’ Fehu, to feel the green glow of Venus, reassuring yet tantalizing, know that there is something Eternal calling us. As Myatt described this very well: there is no division between us, ipseity is just an illusion and ipseities offer us no answer, no matter how we are longing after definite answers. The Sphere of Venus offers no answer, but its green colour, one of the colours of Nature, can actually soothe us. Not soothing us ‘to sleep’ but actually an awakening, a break-through.

The feeling of empathy and compassion is one through which we become humble again, (as opposed to the ‘Black Magic’ formulas of becoming gods), and then we are ready to receive the richness from the acausal. The Sinister demands one to go beyond one’s limits and to leave the Ego behind. Just like in the alchemical Opus we have to become a vessel ready to accept without hesitation. The same applies to showing compassion: we can learn to love, to hold on. Agape is a Greek term which refers to such a state of mind and which is far more spiritual than the word ‘love’ that is used nowadays. Agape refers to a state of mind which destroys all illusions and puts us in an unconditional position. Unconditionally religious (religare = to connect). A most orthodox state of mind. Bataille demanded us to be ferociously religious. And we will not contradict him!

Bataille also referred to ‘love’ and ‘friendship’ as forms of wordless communication, a communication without demands, words, and this puts one in a delicate position almost defenceless. One enters the energetic Continuous where boundaries by definitions no longer apply. When I meditate I open my being-there to the World, and I let go of all my thoughts by casting them aways as illusionary. Agape is for those who are committed to an acephalic path of pure, selfless commitment. The ‘I’ is no longer present, one is devoted to a higher cause, devoted to the happiness of a friend or lover, to the spiritual realization of one’s Wyrd, the Wyrd of the West. A Higher Destiny of which Spengler and Heidegger wrote. Agape is also a Christian term, but one should not be afraid of it, or cast it aside as something ‘un-satanic’ or ‘weak’, for the term goes beyond all morality: to feel connected is a naturalistic essence. It goes beyond ‘good & evil’ and orthodox Christianity (its roots being Gnostic) is well aware of that.

We are all driven by a thrist, a longing, a will-to-power (Buddhist tanha), and we all have the need to satisfy this but let us not focus on that kind of easy satisfaction. Those urges and cravings steer us away from any possibility to inter-connect, to feel the energy drawn from the acausal to the causal.

Othala

The Othala Rune’s energy denotes the spiritual inheritance from our ancestors, our people, the land where we have been raised, its traditions, its folklore, its customs. What can we learn from those traditions that also played an important role in Europe such those of the Greeks, the Romans, the Arabs, Christianity and gnosticism. What can we learn from them? I genuinely believe in an Wordless tradition, a Tradition of the Soul which has been causally transferred through the ages into the Alchemical Tradition of the Great Work. The Sinister Tradition and my particular acephalic path are based on those ancient insights, add new ideas but are loyal to the Tradition.

Now, the Othala Rune exoterically reconnects me to my Heimat, the environment where I have been raised and which strenghtens me to honour those ancients Traditions. Albeit there being different high cultures (Greek, Roman, Arab, Christian) this is not about modern-day multiculturalism. Multiculturalism is only focussed on the causal (food, spice, habits and so on) while an über-cultural Tradition is about the lifting of the Soul, about what Jung referred as a collective unconcious. The Green sphere of Venus can be seen as nurturing that feeling of connecting again.

Another important aspect of the Othala Runes can be traced back to nobilitas, nobility, being noble. And this is an important element if we desire to grow spiritually, to evolve further and further away from the pathetic state of the mundanes in order to realise the Nietzschean Overman. Hence the connection with the Fehu Rune in the Sphere of Venus.

The Wet Path

Alchemically speaking this is the Sphere of Conjunction (in Naos one refers to Coagulation but I cannot agree with this). In the Hermetic Arts Conjunction occurs when a synthesis, a conjunctio occurs of the anima and the animus, the unconscious and conscious, the natural and that which one knows. One must therefore enter the Continuous and start to look introspectively: the Geist must turn towards itself (the inner change of which Myatt writes) instead of always looking at the outside. We must let ourselves be seduced by the Numinous or what Bataille calls the Sacred. Situated in the Sphere of Venus we talke about the Feminine principle, the eternal-Female which has always been honoured in the Satanic manifestation of the Numinous Sinister Tradition. This is quite a revolution as most Satanic ipseities are male oriented, and regard the female as being submissive, to be controlled. In that opinion these paths do not differ from the Magian beliefs they claim to criticize. The Sinister Tradition however is unique because of its utmost respect towards the female. This is based on the Alchemical understanding of the anima and the animus.

The Path of Venus is what is called a wet Path where the practioner is burnt by water. In the wet path of hermetism there also occur sexual symbols. The sexual act can therefore be seen as an alchemical process in which man and woman are united in love. The conjunctio of man and woman is akin to the operation between two vessels:

“the active and passive, the golden force against the captivating and sympathetic wet force that ‘dissolves’ the former and its own ‘enclosure’. […] ‘Our corpereal gold is as though dead before it unites with its mate. Only then is the secret, interior Sulfur developed’. […] ‘With the Sulfur of Venus, the inner sulfur of man is rectified, reinforced and wholly perfected’.” (Julius Evola, The Hermetic Tradition)

Death & Ecstasy

Interestingly, Evola also mentions the fact that the hermetic texts frequently “speak of a death that is a consequence of the coniunctio, of the ‘joining’, perhaps it also refers to the trauma that can occur at the height of the embrace and orgasm if subjected to a deliberate control.” Bataille referred to the orgasm as a ‘little death’ and this is exactly what occurs at the culmination of the sexual act: ecstasy or ekstasis: going beyond of oneself. In this moment of rapture one become headless, acephalic as one transgresses the limits of ipseity. The Sphere of Venus can therefore be deadly as well and the Dark Goddess Darkat reigns most supremely.

Dragon and the Ouroboros

In Naos one can find the symbol Dragon as being atributed to the Sphere of Venus. I have chosen the Ouroboros as it stands for the endless flux of energy, birth and Death, creation and destruction, and I find these aspects united in the Sphere of Venus. Freya as a Goddess embodies both love and war, creation & destruction. The dragon, often described to Mercury with which Venus is connected, devours itself and recreates and archetypically symbolizes the collective UR-grond of the Life Cycle. The attribution to Mercury is perhaps more accurate but Venus does possess such maternal qualities as well for the Water, as they element of Venus, also refers to the maternal water from which we are all born. The Mother as a guardian of the Life Force.

We can therefore conclude that the Sphere of Venus has much to offer to the practitioner. Approach it with the utmost respect. Enjoy the sexual rapture & the mystical Death. Become Acephalic!

Agios O Darkat! 333!

Evola re-interprets the notion of War as a metaphysical duty. At the centre of a traditional society Evola locates a spiritual elite from which warriors derive their ultimate reason of being, their supreme justification of their actions. According to the traditional concept the warrior does not fight as a servile caste, is not a ‘profession’ or a mercenary as in a capitalist system. The warrior caste has its own spiritual and distinct way of living, its own rituals, and the act of fighting becomes a spiritual practice. This can be compared to the cult of Eastern combat which integrates fighting techniques with the Numinous. This is the definition of metaphysical warriorship.

[David] Myatt’s life has been a supreme example of this kind of exeatic and metaphysical living, and the West was clearly not ready to accept such a living as an example of a regeneration of the European man and his Volk. Georges Bataille was also drawn to this kind of living although he would not have supported the choices made by Myatt. Nevertheless the mysticism of Myatt, his Numinous Living, is a grand example of an ongoing Innerer Krieg and an ongoing influence of the sinister forces of the Sphere of Mars. Evola talks about ‘a spiritualized personality’, namely a personality realized according to its supernatural (metaphysical) destiny.

A Review Of Hitler’s Echo

Paul Jackson: Colin Jordan and Britain’s Neo-Nazi Movement: Hitler’s Echo. Bloomsbury Academic.
e-book, 2016. ISBN 9781472514592. £ 84.99
Hardback, 2016, ISBN 9781472509314. £ 85.00

As the author notes, this is a political not a personal biography of Colin Jordan with the intent being to use Jordan’s political life as a means of understanding post World War II National Socialism in the context of the definition by the author of what ‘neo-nazism’ is.

This definition is detailed, but in essence states that neo-nazis have a revolutionary goal which is futural, of creating a new era, a new order, anti-liberal in ethos and practice, with this new order drawing inspiration from Hitler and the Third Reich, and consequently involves the belief that the Jews pose an existential threat, celebrates the ideal of racial identity and the development of new communities and/or nations while developing fraternal ties with other White peoples. In addition, neo-nazism has elements that make it a modern political religion and is currently distinguished from inter-war fascism and German National Socialism by the fact it is not a mass political movement but devolves around groupuscules which tend to be in permanent state of flux and which are invariably, in political terms, marginalized.

Aside from the use by Jackson of the pejorative term conspiracy theory to describe the belief that the Jews pose a threat, his definition is a welcome academic step forward for those interested in contemporary fascism and National Socialism.

A substantial part of the book is given over to an academic analysis of the literature concerning fascism and neo-nazism, which is unsurprising given that the intended audience is an academic one. However, given that this analysis occupies the long first chapter it may deter many contemporary fascists and National Socialists – interested in the life of Colin Jordan – from buying the book. Which would be a shame as it provides the most detailed narrative of Jordan’s life and writings currently available using many unpublished or hard to access sources and documents.

While the narrative is – as befits an academic work – generally free from obvious bias, on several occasions a certain bias is evident, as for example at the beginning of chapter two – From Private Jordan To Emergent Leader – when Jackson writes that “[Jordan] used his prejudices to make sense of the confusion he saw in the immediate post-war world…” whereas it would be more apt, and certainly more academic, to write something akin to “his political beliefs enabled him to understand he confusion he saw in the immediate post-war world…”

Similarly, the author accepts without question that the Shoah is historical fact, and that the National Socialist belief – contemporary and as manifest by Hitler and his NSDAP – that the Jews pose a threat and have too much influence in certain spheres is ‘a conspiracy theory’ ungrounded in reality.

Such lapses into bias aside, his narrative provides an insight into the political activities and writings of Jordan; so much so that Jordan emerges, in the context of academic research (rather than in the frame provided by neo-nazi supporters), as an important, and indeed a pivotal, figure of post-war National Socialism in two respects: keeping alive and propagating, in Britain, the tenets of National Socialism, and, by his overt political activities, becoming and then being the respected figure that young National Socialists and others would often go to or would correspond with for guidance, to learn about National Socialism, or to “carry forward” through the political activities of his various groups the flame of the new order.

Jackson’s book, with its multitude of verifiable sources, also provides context for the self-published biography of Jordan titled Twaz a Good Fight! The Life of Colin Jordan and written by Stephen L. Frost, a sympathetic supporter and member of British Movement, one of the groupuscules that Jordan founded. According to Frost, his account is based on unpublished autobiographical notes written by Jordan himself, a claim which Jackson also mentions and accepts but with the obvious caveat that in the matter of such memoirs, and texts written by admirers and supporters, they are often “romanticised evocations” and/or “idealized” versions of events.

If there is one criticism of both books it is that both, in their different ways, tend to overemphasize Jordan’s importance as a theorist and writer while Jordan’s strengths were as an activist and as a propagandist. A case in point being the ideas Jordan propounded during his Gothic Ripples period, especially that of the abandonment of the political route to power and promotion of the idea of a vanguard, of alternative National Socialist and White-only communities, followed by sabotage of the old order to prepare the way for the new. For these were basically a melding and a development by Jordan of the ideas of Joseph Turner – Jost – and his NS kindred, of activists such as David Lane, and of writers such as William Pierce.

However, that said, Jackson’s book is recommended reading for those – be they contemporary National Socialists or otherwise – desirous of learning both about a pivotal figure in post-war National Socialism and about what modern National Socialism is. For Jackson succeeds in shedding light on neo-nazism by his political biography of Colin Jordan.

The Vulgarian

So a majority of people in the United States voted for The Vulgarian to be their next President. Their choice – of a vulgar, uncultured, arrogant, misogynist, ignorant, draft-dodging bully, obsessed with money and power – says much about that majority, about our times, about America, about democracy, and also possibly about our future as a sentient species.

What it says about that majority, about our times, is that people – even in a prosperous country such as America with its millions of well-educated citizens – are still easily persuaded by rhetoric and still follow and approve of some demagogue who gives voice to those fears about ‘the other’ that lurk within us all; and that appeals to jingoistic ‘patriotism’ – even when made by a duplicitous draft-dodger – still work.

That democracy allows such men as The Vulgarian and The Proxy Rapist – who joked about the gang-rape of a White woman by natives of his Filipino country – to assume positions of power and influence makes one understand the rationale behind the type of government that Heinlein outlined in his novel Starship Troopers.

As for our future as a sentient species, with the bellicose Vulgarian set to become Commander in Chief of the most powerful military forces in the world, it is as if we as a species have failed to learn anything from the past five thousand years of almost continual warfare; failed to learn from the killing, the destruction, the hatred, and the trauma that war causes. For it’s as if we’re trapped in an inexorable cycle of brutality and savagery in which there are only brief periods – in millennial terms – of relative peace, civilization, and prosperity, undermined and eventually destroyed as those brief periods always are by conflict, by hatred, by war; by the savagery, the uncultured instincts, which always and somewhere burst forth again. For our history shows that we’re the most savage, the most destructive, species on this planet even if the majority of us refuse to believe it.

In our majority, and across millennia, we humans – we terrans –  have failed to achieve a balance; a balance between our inherent savage, destructive, nature and what successive civilizations, and their rise and fall, can teach us. What they teach is self-restraint and the importance of civility and honor; a teaching which was eloquently expressed in the past in the writings of Cicero and more recently, I believe, in the still little known ‘ethical National Socialism’ which Myatt developed and which is manifest in Reichsfolk. For in that evolution of National Socialism there is not only an honorable balance between men and women but also a natural balance between us defending and fighting for our family, our homeland, and us living a cultured, a civilized, life. As Heinlein wrote in his novel, “the noblest fate that a man can endure is to place his own mortal body between his loved home and war’s desolation.” A sentiment which echoes what the Greek poet Kallinos wrote thousands of years before:

Noble and glorious is he who fights
For his folk and family against the foe.
Since death comes when chosen by Fate –
Bringing to an end the thread of life –
Go forward with spears held high and shields shielding brave hearts
When battle is joined:
There is no flight from death, for that Destiny comes to all mortals
Even they claiming descent from the gods.
Many from the battle-fury of roaring javelins have fled to their home.
But even there, their fate of death awaits;
And they die unloved and unmourned by their folk
While both chiefs and the clan lament for the brave.
All of a community weep for the courageous who die:
And if they live, they are hailed like a god,
Exalted by those who behold them
For the deeds of the many, they did alone.
{1}

For it is the self-restraint and the ethical guidelines which honor provide which we as a sentient species require. A point made by Myatt in many of his idealist National Socialist writings of the 1990s and which he carried over into his later philosophy of pathei mathos writing in his book The Way of Pathei-Mathos – A Philosophical Compendiary that honor is “the numinous balance”.

David Myatt

 

For a long time I, personally, have always respected Michael Aquino, founder of the Occult group the Temple of Set. Why such respect? Because, judged by his actions over some forty years and judged by what individuals who have known him have personally said or written about him to me, I judged him to be a person of integrity. Someone, that is, who would not knowingly besmirch a person’s reputation and someone who had and who upheld certain moral standards. Which is most befitting given that he was for years an officer in the United States military.

Thus it is with pleasure that my attention was drawn, by a comrade, to a posting that Aquino (on the 11th of October 2016) made on an internet forum and in which posting he not only reproduced a letter he had received, in the 1990s, from David Myatt but also mentioned that his correspondence with Myatt was “mutually courteous and respectful.”

Since some people who have associated themselves with the Order of Nine Angles seem intent on maligning and mocking Aquino, I reproduce in full here the aforementioned posting in which Aquino quotes from a letter he received from Myatt. The posting is as follows:


[Begin quotation]

My last correspondence with David Myatt [under his own name] occurred in February-March 1998 and was mutually courteous and respectful.

°°°

 David Myatt to M.A. 2/28/98:

Sir: It has come to my attention that you have frequently mentioned my name in connection with a certain “occult” group, alleging among other things that I am some sort of leader or sole member of this group. This is completely untrue. I am not “Anton Long” nor “Stephen Brown”. Neither am I an occultist! As for Mr C Beest, if you know people who had ever met him, you would know he is not yet thirty years old and could not possibly be me, being as I am almost fifty years old!

I am certainly a National-Socialist – that is, a NAZI. I have been a Nationalist-Socialist since I was sixteen years old. For your information I once many years ago infiltrated an occult group in the hope of using that group for NS ends – to propagate National-Socialism. It seemed a good idea at the time!

As far as I am concerned, National-Socialism and the occult are incompatible, and NS and Satanism certainly are! No one can be both a NS and a Satanist – you are either one or the other.

Yours, etc.
D. Myatt

°°°

So let us take Mr. Myatt at his word: that he is not “Long/Brown/Beest”, has no connection with “ONA”, and as he is a professed Nazi considers that it would be impossible for him to simultaneously be a Satanist.

In this case my disapproval of the “ONA” consequent to both the writings under its name and the manners of its professed adherents, are no reflection on Mr. Myatt. I do not know him personally beyond our brief, courteous correspondence almost two decades ago. I have absolutely no reason to wish him ill.

[End quotation]


While a few O9A’ers will doubtless believe that Aquino has fabricated that letter from Myatt, I personally am of the opinion that it is genuine since I accept Aquino’s honesty in this matter and know that Myatt’s letter expresses what Myatt has consistently written and said over many decades. For instance, that Myatt did “infiltrate an occult group in the hope of using that group for NS ends” and that he did believe that “National-Socialism and the occult are incompatible” as evidenced by his 1990s text  Occultism and National-Socialism (pdf).

What I find of particular interest is that the letter from Myatt apparently dates from shortly before – or shortly after – he was arrested for ‘incitement to murder’ following a Dawn Raid on his home by police officers from S012 (Special Branch) stationed at Scotland Yard.

Below is a link to a pdf edition of David Myatt’s seminal National Socialist text Vindex: The Destiny Of The West, a text first published and printed in 1984 in the USA by George Dietz.

This pdf edition was produced some years ago by a member of an Australian ONA nexion, who added a few footnotes to the text and an essay at the end. While the transcriber introduced a few typos into the text, these – and his few footnotes and end essay – do not detract from its value: from the fact that, to date, it is still the only publicly available edition of Myatt’s text, with rare secondhand copies of the 1984 printed edition fetching high prices when they come up for sale, and thus kudos is due to the person who transcribed the printed text and produced this pdf version.

Vindex: Destiny of The West
(pdf)

nypd

 

Two events today – one very local and personal, the other of international political interest and personally unrelated to me – reminded me of what we in the West have and one of the important reasons how what we have is currently maintained.

Local

Earlier this morning Police surrounded a nearby house, with one armed Police officer – a quite young man – detailed to guard a possible rear escape route. Raid over, with arrests made, the armed officer politely and calmly re-assured a local resident who had, seeing and hearing the kerfuffle, ventured out into her garden, next door. In return, she thanked him knowing as she did how and why he had that morning willingly put his own life in danger. He genuinely surprised yet pleased that someone, some local resident, understood.

International

Such an orderly, and so very civilized, change of leader of a government in one Western country. Established, time-honored, procedures, a certain formality, and most definitely a long-standing tradition. A last appearance in a debating chamber for the departing leader during which not one of his political opponents used vulgar language or indulged in argumentum ad hominem. Then, for him, a journey – in a convoy with armed Police – to a formal audience with the Royal Sovereign of that land who alone, constitutionally, had the power to accept his resignation as leader, and who asked for his recommendation of who would be his successor as political leader of that land. Followed, shortly thereafter, by that new leader – in another convoy with armed Police – who only the Royal Sovereign of that land could formally, legally, appoint.

Here again were people acting in a civilized, a cultured, way; and here again were Police personnel – without any fuss or bother – putting their own lives in danger.

A Civilization Maintained

Such a contrast to so many places, to so many lands, around the world. Such an order, such a culture, such traditions, such civilized behavior by so many, as we in the West now have and have for over a century managed to maintain, despite the many problems that have afflicted us and despite the uncivilized behavior, the unreason, of many within our own lands.

Managed to maintain: because there are rules, traditions, procedures, for governments and politicians, worked out and refined over a century and more.

Managed to maintain: because there is the rule of law which, despite some individuals some of the time disagreeing with some of those laws, has created and maintained an ordered society for the benefit of the many, which law can be changed by civilized procedures, and which law – for all its faults – does on balance reflect what is fair, civilized.

Managed to maintain: because there is a Police force with long-standing traditions and procedures and with so many individuals within it prepared to put their own lives in danger because they know or because they instinctively feel what is civilized and what it is, in a given situation, the civilized, the fair, thing to do.

Managed to maintain: despite the doubters, the critics, the uncouth, the hateful, ones who seek to overthrow such a civilized, hard-won, order and who – often via the fallacy of arguing from the specific to the general – demean and hate the many (politicians, the Police) for the misdeeds of a minority.

All this, and so many similar things, is why I – aligning myself as I do with Reichsfolk – have a natural aversion to the uncouth behavior and language and the barbaric hatred of the many who now align themselves with National Socialism without understanding, or without feeling, its civilized, cultured, essence: an essence so manifest in the Waffen-SS, and an essence so maligned for so many decades by so much propaganda and so many lies because of the vested interests of so many who, at heart, are uncouth, uncultured, and uncivilized.

David Myatt: National Socialist Essays
(Volume 1, pdf)

As an academic noted in an article – published in 2013 by the United States Air Force – David Myatt is “arguably England’s principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution.” [1]

It seems therefore apposite for us to offer this volume: the first in a projected series of documents containing a few of the hundreds of National Socialist essays of David Myatt dating from the middle to late 1990s, essays which were not included in the recent [April 2016] pdf collection we released titled Selected National Socialist Writings Of David Myatt.

Where that collection concentrated on Myatt’s more philosophical and ideological NS writings – his revisionist vision and evolution of National Socialism – this series will concentrate on his more overtly political writings; the type of writings published for instance in his newsletter The National- Socialist – whose banner was ‘Propaganda Without A Fist To Back It Up Is Useless’ – and which newsletter was initially issued (from 1995 on) in support of Combat 18, and later (from 1997 on) in support of his own political organization The National-Socialist Movement, of which the London nail-bomber David Copeland was a member.

The re-publication of these essays, as with Selected National Socialist Writings Of David Myatt and the Constitution of The National-Socialist Reich, should provide suitable source material for those researching, studying, or interested in, either contemporary neo-nazi ideology and ‘right-wing’ extremism and/or the life and past extremism of Mr Myatt. What is also of interest is how Myatt’s political strategy evolved over time: from supporting covert insurrection and ‘terrorism’ in pursuit of overthrowing the government to – via pathei mathos – the ethical National Socialism of Reichsfolk.

Constitution of The Fourth Reich
(pdf)

While ostensibly the pdf document linked to above is a detailed constitution for the Fourth Reich envisioned by some neo-nazis it is also a primer of contemporary neo-nazi ideology, or at least a primer of the ‘revisionist’ National Socialism propagated by David Myatt in the 1990s in his voluminous National Socialist pamphlets such as The Meaning Of National-Socialism (third edition, 115yf) and in essays such as Esoteric Hitlerism: Idealism, the Third Reich and the Essence of National-Socialism, both of which are included in Selected National Socialist Writings (pdf).

However, 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 vision of National Socialism: from the economy, to the type of government, to the judiciary to foreign policy.

Of course, 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 I am 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 and/or in the extremism and life of David Myatt.

As mentioned in the ‘Editorial Note’ which prefixes this version of the document, the Constitution was first circulated in the 1990s among supporters of Myatt’s National-Socialist Movement and first openly published by Reichsfolk in the year 2000, and although no author was given it has been attributed to Myatt given the frequent use of the terms ‘numinous’ and ‘Folk Culture’, its ‘code of honour’, and given its mention of a ‘cosmic being’ which ‘cosmic being’ featured frequently in Myatt’s later, post-1995, National Socialist and ‘folk culture’ writings.
