"The wishes and the selfishness of the individual must appear as nothing and submit," declares Hitler in Mein Kampf; a man must "renounce putting
forward his personal opinion and interests and sacrifice both..."
Morality, writes Edgar Jung, a contemporary German rightist with the same viewpoint, consists in the "self-abandonment of the Ego for the sake of
higher values." Such an attitude, he notes, is the ethical base of collectivism, which demands of each man a life of "subservience to the Whole."
Individualism, by contrast - since it grants man the right to pursue his own happiness - rests on the opposite attitude: "Every form of individualism
sets up the Ego as the highest value, thus stunting morality..."
The political implementation of "subservience to the Whole," according to the Nazis, is subservience to the state - which requires of every German the
opposite of self-assertion. Hence the ruling principle of Nazism, as defined by a group of Nazi youth leaders. The principle is: "We will."
"And, if anyone were to still ask: 'What do we will?' - the answer is given by the basic idea of National Socialism: 'SACRIFICE' "
Since the proper beneficiary of man's sacrifices, according to Nazism, is the group (the race or nation), the essence of virtue or idealism is easy to
define, according to them. It is expressed in the slogan "Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz" ("The common good comes before the private good"). "This
self-sacrificing will to give one's personal labor and if necessary one's own life for others," writes Hitler, "is most strongly developed in the
Aryan. The Aryan is not greatest in his mental qualities as such, but in the extent of his willingness to put all his abilities in the service of the
community. In him the instinct of self-preservation has reached the noblest form, since he willingly subordinates his own ego to the life of the
community and, if the hour demands, even sacrifices it."
"Du bist nichts; dein Volk ist alles" ("You are nothing; your people is everything"), states another Nazi slogan, summarizing the essence of the Nazi
"Providence," Said Hitler to Rauschning, "has ordained that I should be the greatest liberator of humanity. I am FREEING men from the RESTRAINTS OF
INTELLIGENCE that has taken charge; from the dirty and degrading self-mortifications of a chimera called conscience and morality, and from the demands
of a FREEDOM and INDEPENDENCE only a very few can bear."
Here he outlined the very CORE of Nazi philosophy in epistemological, ethical, and political terms. To liberate man from intellect, he advocated
irrationalism. To rid man of conscience, he advocated for altruism. To free the world from freedom, he advocated collectivism. And that is the core of
Nazi belief: Collective irrational altruism. These three theories, together, constitute the essence of Nazi philosophy, which never changed from the
start of the movement to today.
Of course, this is the very same philosophy being triumphed from Washington DC and virtually all state and local governments. "GIVE YOUR MASKS TO THE
HOSPITALS INSTEAD OF WEARING THEM TO NOT GET SICK BECAUSE IT'S BETTER FOR THE COMMUNITY. SIX FEET OF SEPARATION SHOULD BE FINE FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS
AND SHOPPERS," the media cried, as they ran editorial pieces floating the idea that doctors should give up on anyone over 60 years of age if they
arrive with Coronavirus at a hospital, watching the numbers of infected persons soar as a result of their policies.
"See, your problem, America, is that you seek to be intelligent, free, men of conscience. If you wanted to make America great again, you'd voluntarily
give up your rights to allow the group to better sacrifice you," said the tyrants in Washington, the state governors, the public health officials, and
the local municipalities.
F NAZIS. And any nation taught that in the name of morality, they must reject the pursuit of values can reach no other end-of-trail. Men without
values are zombies or puppets - or Nazis.
