Fascist economics and stuff

Previously I have been reading several things about Nazi/Fascist economics, and recently it came back around; notably there is this article: http://www.ihr.org/other/economyhitler2011.html , which was retitled in its French translation Nazi economics: the hidden analyses (http://www.egaliteetreconciliation.fr/Economie-national-socialiste-l-analyse-interdite-27567.html). Yeah lots of bullshit flying around.

Several questions are flying around (with the bs btw), notably how would you qualify an economy as ‘fascist’. One of the first element that comes to mind is the “planned” element second is about its banking system. If you limit yourself to these two elements (actually there’s more if you dig, but let us limit to that for this demonstration), and you try to find which country did oblige to these precepts after WWII, you come up with France & De Gaulle’s financial and state system.

There is this romantic myth that the results of the success of Nazi economics were obfuscated by the abjection of their behaviour. That is utter bullshit, it was used, and as a prime example you can point France’s post WWII politics. Oh, and it gaves us, us the French, 30 years of growth, before these ‘fascist’ politics got replaced by real capitalist liberal ones. What about that?

As I said, Paganism is not sought out for its own sake. It is always for the sake of something else. The root of their Paganism is not a genuine desire to believe in gods that are present, active, and true, but rather to display their anti-Christianity, their historical/cultural allegiance, or simply to express some sort of odd, irrational phase of youth.

boo fucking who, stop defending the senseless genocide, mass murder and destruction and smearing of European culture that happened under an imported Jewish religion. Paganism’s only shallow, false and meaningless when you view it like a Jew and actually think it’s just about a bunch of violent bearded superhumans floating around in the cloiuds and controlling the weather when anyone with a brain and a reasonable amount of research under their belt doesn’t take it at face value and knows there’s a lot more to it than that.

Go back to your worthless death cult that worships a cosmic Jewish zombie.

tl;dr argument: “jews therefore you’re wrong”.

You’re the one making the “boo fucking hoo” argument here. Maybe if your pagan gods were anything but the mindless expression of imaginanation of a few axe-wielding, human-sacrificing savages, then they would have defended you against the followers of the false Jewish Cosmic Zombie :’^)

And if seeing religion as a means by which an individual attains truth rather than worships whatever the hell their ancestors did for the sake of it, then perhaps the Jews are better at creating coherent systems of belief than your straw-hut dwelling barbarian hordes?

And if this doesn’t resonate in the fact that Christianity has developed the most coherent, reasonable and spiritually inspiring concept of what it means to be human, then perhaps it does resonate in the fact that conquering you mutts (if you didn’t convert already) was quite easy, despite the fact that we were the ones teaching that God’s Kingdom is inherited by the meek, humble, poor in spirit, while your hordes taught that rape, pillage, and the attainment of material goods was the path to good life (was just about to say eternal life, but your gods are going to be either killed by giants or eaten by wolves, aren’t they?). Should I mention the fact that European civilization reached the glorious, prosperous apex of its power under the Holy Cross?

Go back to your pathetic “im-going-to-do-whatever-the-hell-my-people-did-a-thousand-years-ago”, straw-hut dwelling, “the entire world is a big fucking tree” religion, while I practice the faith that made Europe great, and has established itself as the only true expression of truth and the Will of the One True God, because truth is truth regardless of whether it coems from a Jew.

But I forgot, it’s difficult to go back to your powerful gods when they didn’t stop the “genocide” of your people and ceased to be worshipped for centuries, isn’t it? I imagine Valhalla is pretty depressing nowadays when the only ones worshipping Thor and Odin are edgy teenagers trying to play “traditionalist”.

But hey, everything I just said was really a superficial rant, because I can make your views look dumb as well (as if they haven’t done that for themselves). When you’re ready to drop the SJW-esque “u guys genocided us!!!11oneone~1” victim-game and address the fact that Odin, Thor, Freja, or whatever the hell you believe in, are giant shams, then we’ll talk. 

Europeans aren’t Jews, therefore they have no reason to practice a Jewish religion and hate their native religions, that’s all there is to it. I am completely comfortable with who and what I am and what I believe in, no reason for me to cry about it, just calling out anti-European weaklings, cowards and traitors for what they are. Christians who hate European paganism are just as repulsive and pathetic as guilt-ridden self-loathing white liberals.

There are plenty of ultra-traditional Christians I have a lot of love and respect for on here who clearly appreciate all aspects of European culture, Christianised or otherwise, and don’t promote Christian elitism and the erasing of native European culture because “it doesn’t matter anymore”. They promote universal European values and standards, and in these cases I completely agree with them.

"Europeans aren’t Arabs, therefore they have no reason to use Arabic numerals"

"Germanic people are Medditeraneans, therefore they have no reason to use the Latin Alphabet"

"Europeans aren’t Asians, therefore they have no reason to use gunpowder"

Religion is not about doing what your “people” are doing. This is a flawed premise, and it is up to you to demonstrate why it should be followed. Religion is about what is there and what isn’t. Religion is about how we are meant to live our lives. Paganism rests on the notion that the “gods” exist, created us a certain way, interact with us a certain way, and our thoughts, actions, and behaviours have to harmonize with the actions of these beings in order to live a life as we are meant to. This is the premise you should be defending. 

However, if these “gods” do not exist, then the very core of pagan belief and practice is null. It is like breaking a branch off of a tree and expecting Apples to grow from it. It is literally useless practice one the core premise of the belief is gone.

"Anti-Europeans" "Cowers" "Weaklings". Again, defend this premise. Why should anyone live according to your standard of what a European should be? Quite frankly, nations, civilizations, people, all come and go. These are temporary things. However, truth is constant, does not decay, and does not change based on who believes in it. If being a Christian and denying that Paganism has any merit beyond that of satisfying silly cultural ambitions makes me a coward, then openly denying truth because it isn’t part of your “culture” is dumb, ill-minded, and childish.

So I’m telling you that I do not care about putting Christianity, the truth of all reality both physical and metaphysical, the faith that preaches the ressurrection of Christ, the one single most important even in all of reality, into a little box of “yuropeean culture”. Europe is great because it is Christian, not vice-versa. 

Christians who hate Paganism are simply honest. False-gods do nothing but lead the soul away from the truth. We destroyed the Roman temples, converted the Germans and the Franks, sent the missionaries to the British Isles, threw the Slavic deities into the Dniepr, and we did so righteously. 

The meek, the weak, the humble, and the poor in spirit conquered the world of those whose entire lives were dedicated to demonstrating their superiority above others. I am not telling you that Christianity is good because it conquered and destroyed the heathens. I’m telling you that the faith of heathens is worthless if it let itself be destroyed by falsehood so easily. I’m saying that Paganism is ill-minded and weak by its own standard, not by the standard of Christianity.

oh my, my paganism started after I read The Spiral Dance & due to my focus on rituals. I feel so far away from this discussion.

I feel quite weird with the relationship of porn and far right. I mean politically speaking it does not make much sense (as a liberalism against tradition opposion), but it exists and it is very much a matter of fact in France.

This reminded me also of Nikki Miller, member of Magyar Gárda (link NSFW, obviously).

I wasn’t aware of this one - I forgot to mention  the infamous Kitti Blair: a german porn star who was a candidate for the German NPD party (a neo-nazi party) and was thrown out by her peers for betraying the race (read fucking black men in a GGG movie).

It’s funny: the more you look, the more you find.
