A Contrast Of Lives

odal3

Editorial Note: The following extract is from the highly controversial Understanding Neo-völkisch Satanism, which article was first published on the TWS Nexion blog.

The extract provides succinct descriptions of the ‘modern satanism’ manufactured by Howard Stanton Levey (better known under his aliases of Anton LaVey and Anton Szandor LaVey) and the ‘traditional Satanism’ of the Order of Nine Angles, and – most interesting of all – also provides an account of the contrast between the life of Levey and the life of the person often alleged to be behind the pseudonym Anton Long, the founder of the O9A and author of most of its texts.

For those interested, the allegation regarding who is behind the pseudonym Anton Long is considered in detail in the 87 page book titled A Modern Mysterium, for which see the article at https://regardingdavidmyatt.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/a-modern-mysterium-2/

°°°°°°°°°

The Satanism Of Levey

The Satanism of Levey is based on the premise that Satan is a symbol of the carnal, the selfish, the egoistic, nature of human beings, with satanism understood as manifesting the raison d’êtres of ‘might is right’, of ‘lex talionis’, and of the individualistic ideas expressed in Ayn Rand’s Objectivism {5}.

This type of Satanism promotes “the total satisfaction of the ego” {6} and obeying the law of the land {7}.

The Satanism Of Anton Long

The Satanism of Anton Long is based on the scholarly premise 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.

Thus, for the O9A, a satanist is someone who is heretically opposed to those who believe they are the chosen people of God/Jehovah, with O9A satanism understood as an antinomian – amoral – means to exeatic personal experiences which shape and evolve an individual’s character and understanding. {8}{9}.

A Contrast Of Lives

The contrast between the Satanism manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey and the Satanism developed and expounded by Anton Long is perhaps best illustrated by comparing their respective lives, for one would expect their respective types of Satanism to be reflected in their own lives.

The life of Howard Stanton Levey consisted of conducting carnivalesque – and sometimes fetishistic – ‘satanic’ rituals while dressed like Mephistopheles in some amateur production of Marlowe’s Faust; selling membership in his showmanry Church of Satan while telling members to “obey the law”; pontificating – and giving lectures – about his type of satanism; giving interviews to journalists; hosting parties for hedonists and Hollywood-types, and boasting about his past.

Levey, for instance, boasted that as a seventeen year old he worked in the Beatty circus and handled lions and tigers, although circus records from that time showed that no one named Levey or LaVey worked for them. He boasted that he had worked as a photographer for the San Francisco police department although they had no record of anyone called Levey or LaVey working for them.

Levey boasted that he had an affair with Marilyn Monroe, and yet again there is no documentary evidence to substantiate his claim. He boasted that he worked in a burlesque theatre called Mayan and met Marilyn Monroe there whom he claimed worked as a striptease artiste although the owner of the theatre at the time – Paul Valentine – denied it was a burlesque theatre, stated Levey never worked there, with there also being no documentary evidence that Monroe worked there as a striptease artiste.

Levey boasted that he enrolled on a criminology course at the City College in San Francisco although the college had no record of his enrolment with under his real name, Levey, or under the La Vey alias he often used.

Thus the life of Howard Stanton Levey does indeed exemplify his type of Satanism: hedonistic, egoistic, boastful, materialistic, and showmanry. In common parlance: all mouth and trousers.

              In contrast to Levey, “Anton Long” – aka David Myatt – is a “principal proponent of contemporary neo-Nazi ideology and theoretician of revolution” {10}, was “the mentor” who drove someone to kill three people {11}, who before and after 9/11 publicly praised bin Laden and al Qaeda, called the 9/11 attacks ‘acts of heroism’ and urged the killing of Jews {12}, who preached “race war and terrorism” {13}, who wrote “a detailed step-by-step guide for terrorist insurrection with advice on assassination targets, rationale for bombing and sabotage campaigns, and rules of engagement” {14}, who travelled and spoke in several Arab countries about Jihad {15}, who was a bodyguard of England’s principle neo-nazi activist, Colin Jordan {16}, who took over the leadership of the violent neo-nazi group Combat 18 when its previous leader was jailed for murder {17}, who is an “example of the axis between right-wing extremists and Islamists” {17}, who is a Martial Arts expert {18}, who was imprisoned twice for violent offences in connection with his neo-nazi activism {17}, and who in 1998 was arrested for conspiracy to murder and for other offences {14}{19}.

The life of Myatt does indeed exemplify O9A Satanism: actually or potentially harmful, destructive, pernicious, baleful, misleading, deadly; bad in moral character; malevolent, offensive, sly; and hard and difficult. In common parlance: extremist, violent, and terrorist.

An Itinerant Jihadi

Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt

Abdul-Aziz ibn Myatt

Several pages of a new book – Itinerant Jihadis: Arab and Muslim War Volunteers by Raphael Israeli, published by Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency – are devoted to David Myatt and his Muslim years, with the author quoting from several articles written by Myatt.

While there is nothing new about Myatt – with the information somewhat dated, and the author covering previously well-described aspects of Myatt’s life from his leadership of the NSM to his publicly-given (rather propagandistic) reason for converting to Islam – the author does, however, write that Myatt et al provide “incriminating evidence of the brewing Islamic subversion in Britain, and elsewhere, and of its close relationship with world Jihadi organizations.”


The Ignorant Vulgarians And Islam

odal3

The Ignorant Vulgarians And Islam

There are two things that I find of particular interest about David Myatt. The first thing is the range and the depth of his practical experience, which included thirty years experience of street-level often violent political activism, several years as a Christian monk, and ten years as a practising Muslim. The second thing is his erudition, evident as that erudition is in his familiarity with the culture – and especially the literature – of the West from the time of Homer to Cicero to TS Eliot and beyond. Having “fluency in the classical languages (Greek and Latin), as well as Arabic and possibly Persian” {1} he is thus erudite, a scholar, as those terms were understood by English speakers from before the time of Shakespeare to the time of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

When, therefore, he in his mature – post-2011 – years writes about ancient Greek culture, about Christianity, about the culture of the West, and about Islam, he is writing not only from personal experience but also as a scholar able to read primary sources – such as Homer, the New Testament, and the Koran – in their original language.

What Myatt in recent years has written about Islam and Muslims directly contradicts the anti-Muslim rhetoric of “the vulgarians”, such as The Master Vulgarian who currently occupies a position of power and influence in America and the hordes of minor, anti-Muslim, vulgarians who style themselves as defenders of ‘civilization’. {2}

Regarding such people Myatt asks:

“Have [they] read the Quran in Arabic? Have they studied the Sunnah – at the very least the collections of Bukhari and Muslim? Have they studied Al-Adab Al-Mufrad? Have they studied Islamic jurisprudence and discussed Shariah with a Qadi? How many conversations about Islam have they had with learned Imaams? Have they lived in a land where the majority of people are Muslim? How many times have they been guests of Muslim families and so shared meals and personal conversations and thus empathised with Muslims? How many Muslim women have they interviewed or asked about Hijab – about why they wear it and how it makes them feel?

If they have not done all those things then they are, in my view, fundamentally ignorant concerning Islam and the Muslim way of life, and thus they speak and write and demonstrate in public about what they personally are uneducated about and about those whom they have not personally interacted with in a courteous way. Thus their opinions, their views, are those of bigots, and their behaviour is uncivilized – that is, the behaviour of people who are unlearned, ill-informed, uncultured, uncourteous, hubriatic. They are also hypocritical, for these leaders and organizers – and those who bankroll them – are virulent in their praise of ‘Western civilization and Western values’ without, it seems to me, realizing that they themselves with their ignorance, their hubris, their intolerance, their prejudice – their bigotry – are excellent examples of the new barbarians assailing Western culture.” {3}

In another article he writes:

“My personal view of Islam, of the Muslim way of life, and which view I have expressed in recent correspondence with others, is a very positive and tolerant one; of respect born from experience, a scholarly study, and a comparative assessment with other religions and spiritual ways also personally experienced.

Perhaps the bad opinion many people in the West have of Islam would be changed if they spent time with Muslim families in places as diverse as Egypt, Somalia, Turkey, Morocco, Pakistan, Senegal, Malaysia, and Birmingham. Until they have, who are they to pass judgement on the Muslim way of life, and on the Quran, the Sunnah, and the Shariah, that inspires and informs that way of life?” {4}

National Socialism And Honour

Even during his time with Reichsfolk in the late 1990s Myatt was writing about the need to treat other races with honour and thus respect their way of life. In a letter to an imprisoned Comrade {5} dated JD2452013.275 (that is, 13 April 2001) and which letter he expanded into an article published under the title The Question of National-Socialism, Racism and Tolerance, {6} Myatt rhetorically asked important questions such as:

“Should we strive to attain our freedom through certain tactics, one of which is a fanatical intolerance? Is our situation that desperate that we should see those who uphold other ways of life – and those of other races – as our enemies? This is the means that has been mostly followed in the past fifty years or so, albeit that it has been followed and employed on a mostly instinctive level. This is the means of “racism”, whether called by that Zionist-invented term or not.

Or, should we strive to be idealistic, and follow the ethic of honour to its logical conclusion? This means that we always strive to do what is honourable, which means that we should strive to be both strong, yet tolerant in a warrior way: proud of our people, our culture, but accepting of other ways, other people, if those other people respect us.”

After considering the options, he concluded:

“I assert that what is good is what is beneficial to our folk, but also honourable, and that if something – some deed or action – benefits or may benefit our folk but is also dishonourable, then that deed or action is something which a National-Socialist should not do […]

We must use our own values of honour, of loyalty, of duty to the folk as the criteria, the standard, to judge what is right, what is wrong, and what is necessary. Furthermore, we must use these values to determine our own behaviour toward others. This is the National-Socialist way: the way of honour, of loyalty, of duty to our folk.

I firmly believe that we can return our people to their own way of life by setting them a personal example, and to do this we must be prepared to live by, and if necessary die for, our ideals of honour, loyalty and duty.”

His words seem even more relevant now as the vulgarians among us gain more and more influence.

{2} While The Master Vulgarian barks about “Islamic terrorism” he in his ignorance forgets – or ignores – two things. First, that America in the last twenty years has directly and indirectly (through its policies) killed far more civilians than all Muslim terrorists combined; directly, in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan, and indirectly in places like Yemen and Syria. Second, that it is not a question of “Islamic terrorism” – as if the religion of Islam is responsible – but rather of some individuals doing what is dishonourable and using something such as a religion as an excuse for their dishonourable deeds: see for example Extremism, Terrorism, Culture and Physis.

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

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

JR Wright & R Parker, The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt,
From National Socialism To The Philosophy Of Pathei-Mathos. 2017.

Available as a Gratis Open Access pdf file (1) this slim volume of 58 pages is by the authors of The Mystic Philosophy Of David Myatt (2) 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.” (3)

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 – Pagan Mysticism And The Ethos of Christianity – 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.

From the Preface:

{quote}
This study concerns (i) the evolution of Myatt’s thought between 2010 and 2012, and especially his move away from National Socialism to his non-political, mystical, philosophy of pathei-mathos with its virtues of compassion, tolerance, and honour, and (ii) whether or not his recent work such as his Pagan Mysticism And The Ethos of Christianity signifies a further evolution in favour of a modern world-view, based on Greco-Roman paganism, as “a means to reconnect those in the lands of the West, and those in Western émigré lands and former colonies of the West, with their ancestral ethos, for them to thus become, or return to being, a living, dwelling, part – a connexion between the past and the future – of what is still a living, and evolving, culture.”

Such evolution of his thought is natural given that in his Uncertitude of Knowing – one of the works discussed here – he writes:

“I am aware that I may not have all or even many of the answers required, and that such answers as I do have, or some of them, might be erroneous and that [they] therefore may need to be amended […] I have made enough mistakes in my own life to know my fallibility, as my views have evolved, matured, as a result of my experiences, my pathei-mathos. So all I have is my own perspective, my own uncertitude of knowing.”

So we should understand that he sees all his post-2010 writings – from his ‘numinous way’ to his later ‘philosophy of pathei-mathos’ to his recent Pagan Mysticism And The Ethos of Christianity – as inconclusive, fallible, subject to change […]

[Such] changes express the reality of the world-view he developed post-2006, aptly described by Myatt as based on pathei mathos, on the learning that can arise from adversity and personal experience.

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 complete Constitution is available here: https://regardingdavidmyatt.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/myatt-constitution-fourth-reich.pdf

°°°°°

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.

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 of overt persecution of those publicly espousing National-Socialism and of those who either question the veracity of what has become known as ‘the Shoah’ or who believe it is a myth.
