Alfred Rosenberg and the Rebirth of the European Spirit

by Guillermo Coletti

Should the subduing talisman, the Cross, break, then will come the roaring forth of wild madness of the old champions… The talisman is brittle, and the day will come when it will pitifully break. The old stone gods will rise… and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes. And Thor, leaping forth with his giant hammer, will crush the Gothic Cathedrals!

— Heinrich Heine, Germany, 1834.

Paganism in Europe

FRENCH PHILOSOPHER Alain de Benoist has rightly noticed (“The Way to be Pagans”, 1980) that Europe could not and will not return to Paganism, but rather that Paganism was inevitably returning to Europe. Paganism indeed has been returning to Europe, long before the twentieth century, long before Nietzsche and Wagner. Its return, noticed de Benoist, can be traced as far back as the days of the Renaissance and can be found in those magnificent paintings rich in infatuation and love with the Aryan mythos of Hellas, and thereby with the Ancient Pagan soul of Europe. Perhaps most modern historians have not taken notice of that evolution of Heathen creativity, but Christian priests have long ago manifested their concern, or, maybe, fear. Abbot J. Gamme wrote in his letter to Monsignor Dupanloup in 1852: “The Renaissance was the resurrection, the cult, the fanatical adoration of Paganism with all its literary, artistic, philosophical, moral and religious idols; the Renaissance engenders the Reform, the Reform engenders the Volterian impiety; this engenders the French Revolution, the French Revolution is the most devastating moral cataclysm ever seen!” Unrepentant before the evidence of the destruction they have caused, the real cataclysm of Western man soul, the warriors of the Semitic Yahweh seem to have done “mea culpas” over actions which may have just engaged in following natural instincts, while oblivious and even joyous over their own faults against Euromankind. Today, as Judaeo-Christianity finds itself immersed in a sea of confusion, division and desperation, the Ancient Gods of Europe enjoy a heroic, long awaited return, that not even the most ferocious renegade Caucasians can avert. From the ruins of shattered shrines to bedouinic deities, new realms will be built. Precisely because the priests of the cult of the cross fanatically incinerated our spiritual past in murderous raids, and as if defiant to history, they attempted to conceal it by building churches on top of the still smoky ruins of the treasures of our ancestors. The European Gods, those who belong only to Euromen, and those to whom only Euromen belong, have been witnesses of our rise to conquest, then our decay, and now they are watching us struggling back to recover the values of that which is eternal, the undying tribute to our blood.

Rosenberg and the Undying Heathen Soul

Those who seek out answers, not into the teachings of Moses, Abraham, or their apostolic inheritors, but into the evolution of our own biological reality through the mythos of the Ancient Gods, must refer to those great men who left us, in the form of books and artistic expressions, the fruit of entire lives dedicated to research our forbidden past. As the 20th century reaches its end, we find in the Euro-Heathen ranks an increasing number of freethinkers, philosophers, politicians, historians and others, working hard to reconstruct the original identity of our people. Names like Julius Evola (Italian philosopher, deceased in 1974) and Alain de Benoist are no longer souls navigating in a sea of intellectual solitude. Just before them, the World War II generation had taken great steps to bring us nearer to completion of this task. In 3rd Reich Germany, Heinrich Himmler (SS Reichsführer), and Walther Darré (Reichsminister of Agriculture) joined Alfred Rosenberg, quite conceivably the leading Pagan National Socialist theoretician, in defining with historical accuracy the soul of the Euroman. The National Socialist rise to power is a great example of that European will that defies oppression and censorship and finally, triumphs. Adolf Hitler, for example, was banned from access to the airwaves and could not use the German radio broadcasting system until after his becoming Chancellor of Germany, in January of 1933. In an article entitled “Germany and the Federation of Nations”, published on August 30, 1923, in the periodical Völkischer Beobachter, Rosenberg provides a brief description of the oppressive spirit of the times: “On June 15, the Israelitische Wochenblatt für die Schweiz demanded the prohibition of the sale of the well-known book of Henry Ford, Der Internationale Jude. On June 23, already the Swiss federal railways issued a decree according to which the mentioned work may not be displayed any longer in the railway bookshops”. Today, over seventy years later, the shaping of the European culture encounters opposition from almost identical alien forces. Again, those working against the free trade of ideas are in our midst.

Alfred Rosenberg dedicated his life to bringing Europe in accordance with her history. In doing so, Rosenberg made friends and enemies, and with every day of work, he constructed his own life into a monument to the revival of the mythos, the man who will come.

An Eventful Life

Alfred Rosenberg was born on January 12, 1893, in the town of Reval (currently known as Tallinn) in Estonia, his father a man of German descent (most people in that area are of German extraction) and his mother Baltic. At a young age Rosenberg moved to Russia to complete his studies; he received his diploma in architecture from the University of Moscow in 1918. During those youthful years, Rosenberg was witness to one of the most dramatic events in modern history: the Bolshevik Revolution. Those days, according to most historians and personal accounts of men who knew Rosenberg in person, were fundamental in the shaping of his views on Communism and Judaism. The connection of Jews to Bolshevism was not only to be noticed by Nazis; Winston Churchill has written extensively on the [kinship of these two — original unclear –Ed.]; in America, government intelligence [agents wrote] numerous reports on the matter, and the [mainstream …ted media] from London and other major world capitals expressed concern over the Jewish-Bolshevik connection. Soon after graduation Rosenberg moved back to the Baltic, to Reval, where he volunteered in a failed grassroots effort to avert the expansion of Bolshevism. As the Red Army advanced with all its might over the fields of Estonia, Rosenberg left the country, arriving in Munich, along with many others, in 1919. Shortly after his arrival in Germany, a 26-year-old Rosenberg joined the Thule Gesellschaft, a small society of nationalistic well-to-do individuals that financed anti-Communist activism during the days of great political agitation. As if inevitable in the progression of his career, Rosenberg joined the NSDAP later that year as member number 625, shortly after meeting with Anton Drexler and Hitler. The new young member’s abilities were quickly noticed by the party leadership, and a little time later the responsibilities deposited on that man were significant. Hitler personally assigned Rosenberg to command the NSDAP, after receiving prison sentence from his involvement with the incidents of November 9, 1923. During the Führer’s imprisonment Rosenberg’s duties were performed efficiently.

The Idealistic Soul of Euromen

Rosenberg was well aware that idealism was a manifestation of the great racial barriers that separate Aryans from other forms of life. The pursuance of ideals and dreams, the selfless devotion to perfection and the intensity of will applied to goals that offer no economic reward, is vibrant and omnipresent in European culture, in contrast to non-Aryan peoples whose actions are motivated by the immediacy of food and shelter, those creatures who never looked up to the sky and never thought of flying. The myths that Ancient Pagans have forged, entirely out of their souls and nothing else, were the purest manifestations of the search for the ideal. In the Myth of the 20th Century, Rosenberg explains:

Once men dreamed of an allseeing and allhearing Being. They called it Zeus. It gazed from the clouds of Olympus over the land, or, perhaps, as Argus. Only a few were bold enough to demand the same for men. But these few dreamers investigated the essence of the lightning-throwing god and examined the mysteriously unleashed natural forces. One day with the aid of these forces they spoke far apart with one another, linked only by a wire. Then even this wire was no longer necessary. Tall slender towers today send mysterious waves out into the entire world and these discharge themselves thousands of miles away as song or music. A bold dream became life and reality.

Rosenberg’s Vision on Duty and Nation

It is frequently charged that National Socialism was another form of colonialism, and that the Germans aspired to rule the world in a sort of reviewed and renovated Anglo-French imperialistic style. That just was not the case. Just as Germanism could have never been implanted within the borders of China, so it was obvious that the Universalism brought upon us by Christians was unworkable, and that only by creating national and racial states, the peoples of this world were going to find themselves in their true identities. On June 2, 1924, the periodical Der Weltkampf published the article entitled “Jewish World Politics”, in which Rosenberg explains some of the National Socialist stand on foreign policy as follows:

Not only individual men but also peoples find their personal lifeform only after many false paths. Wars and revolutions signify the signposts on which the changes in the inner spiritual attitude are to be read. We live today in one of the greatest ages of intellectual, political and economic transformations, that is, all peoples of the white race, although some seem still to slumber fully. The catastrophes which have been effected since 1914 and the throes still to come in world-political events are therefore so powerful because never before have the two old polar oppositions between the racial ideas and international worldview lain in such a strong, instinctive, but at the same time conscious, battle as today…

(Marxist agitator) Instead of setting up for him (contemporary man) as a goal a real homeland and the striving for a national culture, he increasingly freed him inwardly from his fathers, taught him to hate the history of his people and to believe in a nebulous ‘international’. This poisonous seed of hatred against one’s own people has perhaps been the greatest crime of Marxism against all nations…

As if by a natural law! For, every history is finally racial history. Race cannot be explained from the environment, for there will always remain an irresoluble remainder which is not to be resolved either by the climate nor by soil-constitution, nor by adaptation…

We are not dreamers and preach no ‘world peace’, and no eternal fraternalisation. But no matter what the future may bring — we strive with all the strength of our racial internal political and external political liberation from the immoral profiteering-state; liberation of our European racial consciousness with regard to the other races of the globe; the victory of an aristocratic idea over the sordid commercial mentality of the age that passes away at present. That is the world battle of today, the world-revolution of tomorrow, the war of which we do not know when it will be ended, which, however must be fought through, if Germany and the entire old Europe should not decay in the morass as so many peoples of ancient history did. That however a new conception of the world and the state could be born shows that the spiritual powers are still alive in us. It is important to listen to them, it is important to strengthen them, until the day of victory…

Germany for the Germans, China for the Chinese, that becomes the world-political view from the racial conception of the state.

Rosenberg and the Cult of the Cross

Nietzsche’s condemnation of Christianity had reached new heights by 1895, as shown in Der Antichrist, the powerful book he released that year: “The Christian Church has left nothing untouched by its depravity, it has made of every value a disvalue, of every truth a lie, of every kind of integrity a vileness of soul”. The recognition of the Semitic Cult of the Cross as the most alien worldview ever to be embraced by Western societies is admitted today by traditionalists, in a returned, refreshing contemporary current among intellectuals in the Old World. The uprooting of our ancestral faiths by the “persuasive” powers of the stakes have left unerasable marks all over Europe. So fanatical was the subversion of our blood-values, that despite the thousands of individual executions and the numerous massacres perpetrated by the armies of the Church, the might of the myths remains today defiant to oblivion. Rosenberg’s awareness of the matter is as omnipresent as his Nietzschean influence. These few following words are just a brief example of the statements made “on the record” by the German philosopher: “Accordingly, the socalled Old Testament must be abolished once and for all as a book of religion. By this, the unsuccessful attempt of the last one and a half thousand years to make us spiritually into Jews will be eliminated… the movement is to be strengthened further by the removal of openly distorted and superstitious reports from the New Testament.”

An Honorable Life, an End with Honor

Rosenberg spent the last year of his life in the Spandau prison, in Germany, while the procedure known as the Nuremberg trial developed. About this, it is important to mention that the German defendants were charged with crimes which were non-existing at the time of the Second World War, that the enactment of the laws applied to the German defendants have been signed only by the allied forces against the Third Reich and that in the Nuremberg Court the enemies of the Axis were simultaneously Judge and Prosecutors. Until the very last time he was allowed to speak on the record, Rosenberg displayed honor and loyalty to his cause. As expected, a guilty verdict and a death sentence was produced for Alfred Rosenberg and many others accused: Reich Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, Field Marshall Wilhelm Keitel, Governor-General Hans Frank, Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick, SS General Ernst Kaltenbrunner, newspaper publisher Julius Streicher, SS General Fritz Sauckel, General Alfred Jodl and Seiss-Inquart. The executions were performed by a Jewish-American hangman. The date of the executions coincided with the Jewish holiday of Purim, a biblical celebration of the extermination of the enemies of the Children of Zion, as depicted in the Book of Esther, Old Testament.

    THE MYTH OF THE CENTURY by Alfred Rosenberg
    Alfred Rosenberg was first a consultant to Hitler before becoming his Minister of the Occupied Territories. The first edition of this essay dates from 1930, three years before the beginning of the Third Reich. By being sure that Hitler will take power Rosenberg started this historical work first and, above all, artistic to show all neophytes who will succeed (like me) that the program of the Genious Fuhrer had an Artistic – Classic seed . His references to the “concentration camps” that were opened after his takeover of power from other neighboring European countries, Rosenberg sounds the alarm to all the falsifiers of history. He begins by saying that the French Revolution of 1789 “lacks of character” (op.cit.page 96) and “Yahweh has made an irruption into the Catholic Church” (op.cit.page 116). He goes so far as to accuse the latter of his “judeisation” since “our churches have nothing to do with our religion” (op.cit.page 121) and that they are “subject to the hyenas of the jewish purse”(op.cit.page 180). “Our soul is also polluted by the jews” (op.cit.page 251) and a little further he adds “so alternated a mystic cabaret, ranging from zebra to cubism with graphic chaos until that we also got tired of this and that we began to experiment today in vain a “new realism” (op.cit.page 257) which will also be the one of the concentration camps inaugurated later. It is not surprising that the jew Marx has taken up this slogan to put it in the forefront of his hollow doctrine “(ibid.) And it is not surprising either to know that Rosenberg was hanged by the allies, in 1946. Seventy-two years passed but his “Light” will shine for a long time in the future.
