The Words of Adolf Hitler, part 3: Education; The Enemy; Struggle

As 131 beckons us, align your thoughts with new beginnings; with greatness; with understanding.

Education

. . . THE RACIAL STATE must not adjust its entire educational work primarily to the infusion of mere knowledge, but to the cultivation of absolutely sound bodies. The training of mental abilities is only secondary. And here again, first consideration must be assigned to the development of character, especially the promotion of will-power and determination, combined with training in a joyful sense of responsibility — and only lastly, academic schooling. (II:2)

. . . A man of little academic education but physically sound, with good, strong character and imbued with joyful determination and will-power, is worth more to the racial community than a clever weakling. (II:2)

. . . In the long run a sound mind can only dwell in a sound body. (II:2)

Loyalty, spirit of sacrifice, discretion are virtues that a great nation absolutely needs, and their cultivation and development in school are more important than some of the things which today fill up our curriculums. (II:2)

And so the racial state, in its educational work, must side by side with physical training place highest stress precisely on the training of character. (II:2)

Aside from this, it is the task of the racial state to see to it that world history is finally written from a position in which the racial question is raised to dominance. (II:2)

The crown of the racial state’s entire work of education and training must be to burn the racial sense and racial feeling into the instinct and intellect, into the heart and brain of the youth entrusted to it. No boy and no girl must leave school without having been led to a final realization of the necessity and essence of blood purity. (II:2)

The Enemy

The mightiest counterpart to the Aryan is represented by the Jew. (I:11)

He is and remains the perpetual parasite, a sponger who like a noxious bacillus keeps spreading as soon as a favorable medium invites him. And the effect of his presence is also like unto that of all spongers: wherever he appears, the host people dies out after a shorter or longer time. (I:11)

Existence impels the Jew to lie, and to lie perpetually, just as it compels the inhabitants of northern lands to wear warm clothing. (I:11)

Was there any form of filth or shamelessness, particularly in cultual life, without at least one Jew involved in it? If you cut even cautiously into such an abscess, you found — like a maggot in a rotting body often dazzled by the sudden light — a little Jew. (I:2)

. . . No one need be surprised if among our people the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew. (I:11)

The Jewish doctrine of Marxism rejects the aristocratic principle of Nature and replaces the eternal privilege of power and strength with the mass of numbers and their dead weight. Thus it denies personal worth, contests the significance of folk and race, and thereby withdraws from mankind premise for its existence and culture. As a foundation of the universe, it would lead to the end of any order intellectually conceivable to man. . . .If, with the help of his Marxist creed, the Jew is victorious over the peoples of the world, his crown will be the funeral wreath of mankind and this planet will — as it once did for millions of years — move through the ether devoid of men. (I:2)

Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by resisting the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord. (I:2)

There can be no making pacts with the Jew, but only the hard: either — or. (I:7)

For a racially pure people which is conscious of its blood can never be enslaved by the Jew. In this world he will forever be master over bastards alone. (I:11)

Struggle

Those who want to live, let them fight; and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live. (I:11)

This world is not for cowardly peoples. (I:3)

It is our duty to inform all weaklings that this is simply a question of to be or not to be. (I:2)

. . . Victory lies eternally and exclusively in attack. (II:2)

. . . Against those who confront us with force, we will defend ourselves with force. (I:12)

. . . Terror can only be broken by terror . . . (II:7)

. . . Obstacles do not exist to be surrendered to, but rather to be broken. (I:2)

. . . He who first demands of Fate a guarantee of success, automatically renounces all idea of a heroic deed. (II:2)

But precisely in this seeming hopelessness of our mighty struggle lies the greatness of our task, as well as the possibility of our success. The battle-cry which either scares away the small spirits from the very start, or soon makes them despair, will be the signal for the rallying of real fighting natures… Only the best fighters will step forward. And in this selection lies the guarantee of success. (II:2)

World history is made by minorities when this minority of number embodies a majority of will and determination. (II:2)

No one can doubt that this world will one day be exposed to the severest struggles for the existence of mankind. In the end, only the urge for self-preservation will triumph. Beneath it so-called humanity — that expression of a mixture of stupidity, cowardice and know-it-all conceit — will melt like snow in the March sun. Mankind has grown great in eternal struggle, and only in eternal peace will it perish. (I:4)

Almighty God, bless our arms when the time comes; be just as Thou hast always been; judge now whether we be deserving of freedom; Lord, bless our battle! (II:13)

“Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by resisting the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord. “(I:2)

Yup! Hitler’s deep spirituality or religious views are often missed by those who point out that he was born Catholic. He moved beyond that to a specifically White religious view and this can be seen, in part, by various symbols used by Hitler and the Nazis as they tried to get Europe back on the correct spiritual track for Whites. He was indeed doing the work of the [real] Lord, not the make believe ones.

“Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.” – JFK

“For a racially pure people which is conscious of its blood can never be enslaved by the Jew. In this world he will forever be master over bastards alone.”

I’m not sure which translation is being quoted here, but the word “bastards” is somewhat misleading. The German language has the cognate “Bastarde,” but this word does not mean the same thing as the English word “bastards.” “Bastarde” are persons of mixed-race, regardless of the circumstances of their birth.

Judging by a spot check of a few quotations, the translation used isn’t that of Ralph Manheim, but Manheim’s translation of the passage quoted is nearly identical: “For a racially pure people which is conscious of its blood can never be enslaved by the Jew. In this world he will forever be master over bastards and bastards alone.” In any case, it should be clear enough from the context that Adolf Hitler was referring to those of mixed race as bastards, as when he wrote earlier in the same chapter: “He [the Jew] poisons the blood of others, but preserves his own. The Jew almost never marries a Christian woman; it is the Christian who marries a Jewess. The bastards, however, take after the Jewish side.” Similarly, in the chapter… Read more »

As the introduction to this series explains, these passages are a fresh translation made by Matt Koehl, who consulted the Manheim and other translations to assure the most accurate rendering of Adolf Hitler’s words into English.
