To prepare for an interview with Carolyn Yeager, Schattenkoenig worked out in English the following thoughts to highlight some crucial aspects of Germany’s (and, in general, the West’s) situation.
I. The German concept of Geopolitik
The term describes an outline of global political strategies centered on the German Reich and founded in the tradition of holistic views which had dominated German thinking since the Middle Ages, when the Reich (Holy Roman Empire of Germanic Nation) had formed a kind of ordering brace for nations which maintained their autonomy and national character. In the new age, a more genetic viewpoint was established, giving respect to different peoples’ characters.
Most important seems to me the rooting of German Geopolitik in a scientific and rationally gained perspective of what is given naturally. It thinks of peoples as of what they really are and what their realistic potentials are, instead of forming peoples according to some utopian ideology which is inadequate for reality. The powers victorious over Germany in 1945 were unfortunately following ideological concepts and had little respect for peoples’ natural conditions. If reality causes their utopian views to fail, the worse they make it turn out for reality which will be forced to „change“ – until all the world will wake up in a new totalitarian and globe-spanning Soviet Union with no freedom left to speak out the facts.
Geopolitik was fully aware of the fact that there were powers in the world aiming at erecting such a global totalitarian and artificial system. The German intellectuals had fully recognized Western Liberal Capitalism and Marxism as two sides of one medal or, in a better analogy, two arms in a pincer movement with the goal of overwhelming all nations and blending them into a world economic system. Geopolitik was a defensive theory against these attempts undertaken by France, Great Britain and, later, by the Soviet Union.
The Ideal of German Geopolitics was the „organic nation“, defined as a physically, morally and economically healthy people optimally realizing its given potentials. The national economy was to be safeguarded from dependence to outward interests, therefore a strive for „autarky“ was adopted. A nation which is able to produce everything it needs and consumes within their guarded boarders is less likely to be blackmailed or stifled in case of conflict.
This concept was already a strong motivation before World War I, and the National Socialists added the concept of „racial purity“ as they believed the character of a people and even its political decisions being determinated by its genetics. This also led to fatal errors, e.g. as they expected England to be a natural ally against France and Russia. They couldn’t have been further from what then really happened, as Britain (and also the U.S.) were completely undermined and subverted by a clandestine power capable of dominating a people totally, economically and mentally.
As the German people was still in demographic growth at the time the concept was developed, and Germany already had a high population density, the concept of „Lebensraum“ gained importance. Even the idea that a smaller nation which had no opportunity to gain autarky and strength on their own was to disappear and give way to its greater neighbour seems to have risen from the earliest concepts, and was only popularized by Hitler and the National Socialists as a kind of social darwinism of nations. The concept has nothing to do with genocides or exterminating peoples in favor of another one, but as there was a theory in which countries like Belgium, Luxembourg or Poland had no perspective of existing very much longer, it seems no longer a big thing to wipe them off the map deliberately and subdue their peoples to German dominion.
The Geopolitik also had little respect for existing borders because of the natural condition of Germany having no natural boundaries and therefore having been subject to foreign intrusions for centuries (e.g. the Thirty Years’ War). The only boarder of interest was the „Volksgrenze“, which was allowed to expand, also giving way to military means, if the German people expanded continually.
II. German and Western concept of economic science
In a similar way as Geopolitik, the German view on economics was integrated and holistic. It had always been a consensus, even beyond the German boarder, that totally uncontrolled markets pose a severe threat to freedom and security of peoples and even might end up in mass starvation and genocide. In an economy uncontrolled by means of „the state“ there would be players active aiming to ever greater control of the market and to ever greater profits, and the more profit a player would be able to make, the mightier and less scrupulous he would become, and as he cares not for the people’s welfare but solely his profit, the result would be a big monopoly with prices for things of basic need the average consumer is unable to pay.
German economic scientists, and even from other European countries such as France, Italy or England, were aware that, in order to reach the goal of national prosperity, there had to be established a state-controlled economy for things of basic needs, such as water, electricity, food, communication and transport.
If you are talking to economic liberalists today and come up with this fact, they will usually denounce such kinds of thoughts to be „marxist“, „socialist“ or other harsh words. They have inhalated the concept of total freedom of every economic movement, especially that of peoples and money. While they do so in oder to silence opposition even before it can develop its thoughts completely, they couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, the concept of total market liberty is in itself much more Marxist than the traditional continental approach to economy.
Liberalism, as it dominates scientific and political debates today, comes from a completely different school of thought which has no roots in the traditional theory of national economics. Those who formulated the essential works on liberal economy had their personal experience not in the field of working or organizing work and supply for the people in a certain area but rather dealt in transregional trade or in stock markets. Therefore it is not a surprise that their own economic interest comes to dominate their theoretical building. These people made their interest in no boundaries for trade into a central economic „law“, although it is no natural law as the Law of gravity but a demand to legislation.
Today the „theory“ of free markets, which is in fact a wonderfully unproblematic way for globally operating trade concerns to gain huge amounts of profit, even dares to force the „four fundamental flows“ upon every single nation. These flows are: Money (Investitions in and Profits out), Goods (Natural resources MUST be allowed out everywhere, Products in everywhere), Information (concerning production factors) and Workforce. The last thing of these is the most dangerous of all, as a free flow of workers across the globe will root up entire peoples and force them into a soulless system of exploitation and maximization of profits. To secure these four flows, the U.S. military strategy considers to establish a fifth flow: that of „U.S. Strategical Services“, which actually means: War on every nation resisting the implementation of the flows.
Where Marx criticizes „Capitalism“, it is always this form of capitalism he describes. From the perspective of early 19. century Germany, this is untrue as there were actual means of limiting and moderating markets by imposing legislation in favor of national welfare. Marx’ main argument is: In an economy as he describes it, revolution is a necessity. But as Marx considers revolution a necessity anyway, why not let things turn out really bad for the masses first. Therefore the most unscrupulous capitalists, the international bankers and the Marxists always got along so very good for the last 150 years. Marxists, in fact, even are the bankers’ stormtroopers which do their dirty but necessary work.
The Marxist system of rule will come either way, be it via a Marxist revolution or as a creeping menace, as it is today. Neither Western liberalism nor classical Marxism will lead European and American societies out of that pincer movement. Maybe a consideration of the long-established but long-forgotten continental theories of holistic economics may provide a way out.
III. War Propaganda
Following the establishment of great nation states, great standing armies were put up, and in order to provide to these armies a sense of what they were for, states had to conduct propaganda on a greater scale. The Western powers, especially Britain, had got this point very early. Britain was the driving force in encirculating the German Reich, as it, from the No. 1 position, was afraid of any concurrent possibly rising on the Continent. In order to prepare a war against Germany propagandistically, the „Tavistock Institute on Human Relations“ was founded. Ever heard of it? And it is still in existence, for 100 years now. This institute instrumentalized defamation, infamy and lies for the cause of demonizing Germany as a people.
In order to get war bonds sold to simple British citizens for financing Britain’s war measures, the Institute set up in their propaganda posters the idea of Germany aiming at conquering the whole world and enslaving Britons. They spread the lies of German soldiers cutting off babies’ hands, raping Belgian nuns and processing fallen British soldiers into swine food – even in WWI!
There is this person named Edward Bernays. He was an American Jew, a nephew to Sigmund Freud. As the Jewish network wanted America to join forces with Britain against Germany, Bernays went to Britain and worked in the Tavistock Institute with the goal of propagandizing unto the American People until they believed war against Germany, which the U.S. didn’t border to and which never posed a direct threat to it, was a necessity. Can you think of a greater act of treason than getting your homeland into a war in favor of a foreign power, without the slightest interest for itself? After the war had ended, Bernays instrumentalized some of the propagandistic techniques for advertising and for public campaigns, which became known as Public Relations.
Germany had nothing to set against this perfidy. It tried to present the facts and figures about national education, expenditure for the armed forces and the amount of war ships built to invalidate the accusations of being „barbaric“, „war-seeking“ or „militarist“. Unfortunately, the truth about these topics is only presentable as numbers, and propaganda posters presenting numbers are not very supposed to catch peoples’ eyes and bring in money from war bonds. Only as of 1917, the Germans made their first picture-only propaganda poster, showing a soldier with the words „Helft uns siegen“ (Help us win). It raised ten times the result of the previous posters. Tragically, before Germany lost WWI militarically, it lost the war propagandistically.
And this tragedy even repeated in WWII, as Germany had drawn consequences from the propaganda disaster in WWI. Goebbels’ Ministry for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, which has subsequently been demonized as telling infamous lies, had actually just found a way of putting things into catchy headlines while the Allies’ propagandistic branches spread even more diabolic lies over the world. Unfortunately, the power which lied much less lost again and was then blamed for all sins every fighting power had committed. Just look up the name of Ilja Ehrenburg if you want to know of what kind the Allies’ war propaganda was.
IV. The situation in Germany today
Any German who still thinks the German education system will provide him with an adequate mindset is hopelessly enslaved by the Matrix. Germany today is not a free country, but the elites never stop praising their system as „the most democratic, the most free state ever in existence on German soil“. In fact, you are free to consume drugs, you are free to kill your children as long as they are yet unborn, you are free marching naked through the streets on one of those notorious CSDs – but you are NOT free to call this kind of „freedom“ decadent and menacing to our future. You are also not free to claim that the procreation of imported Islamic minorities will not only put these symptoms of decadence to an end but also will bury the small rest of our civil rights when they start struggling for the installation of Sharia Courts.
This struggle is IMO about to come, but I don’t consider it to be possibly successful. Islamists have been brought in in masses to destroy the traditional character of the country, to riot in the streets and to stoke fears among the populace, but the main purpose is to make the peoples more likely to accept a totalitarian control system, a Police state which is designed mainly by the EU. The Federal Republic is even eager to deconstruct its own statehood, its own possibility to handle the coming conflicts because the FRG-Pseudo-Elites are so eager for careers in Bruxelles and are, of course, highly confident in the European Utopia. What the average German says about this bureaucratic juggernaut doesn’t matter at all, as with modern media manipulation tools in „modern-day Democracy“, the „Souvereign“ (i.e. the average) can be forced into arbitrary states of mind.
In 2007, I took part in a demonstration in Bruxelles on September 11th in order to commemorate the victims of the New York atrocity. At that time I was still very much „critical to Islam“ and believed the lie set up by people like Ralph Giordano („Not migration is the problem, but Islam is“ – in fact it’s just the other way round). But nevertheless the event was forbidden by the Communist Bruxelles mayor (in Belgium, unlike in Germany, mayors even have the power to forbid demonstrations). Heavy armed police forces were out on the streets, with armored cars on every corner. I saw a man arrested for nothing but standing with a Crucifix and recitating verses from the Bible. I saw people getting handcuffed for flying national flags. Later I heard that there were even MdEPs (Members of European Parliament) and members of the national parliament of Belgium, of the group Vlaams Belang, heavily beaten up and taken into arrest. The Bruxelles mayor had deliberately ordered French-speaking police forces from the Walloonia to „pacify“ the situation, exploiting the inner-Belgian national conflict for his purposes. In Bruxelles, the Muslim part of the population was then already 57%, and the Communist Party led a coalition with several Islamic fractions in the town hall.
In 2008, there was a rally organized in Cologne called „Antiislamisierungskongreß“. A few hundred demonstrators were present, but the official city government organized a counter-demonstration which consisted of more than 20,000 leftists and „Gutmenschen“. The mayor of Cologne, whose son was even killed by a Turkish car driver in 2001, called the conservative demonstrators „braune Soße, die ins Klo gehört“ (brown sauce belonging into a toilet). The Police „failed“ in protecting the demonstrators, of which some were heavily beaten up. A river boat they had rented for the day was thrown at with stones so it almost sank. Finally the whole event had to be blown off. Leftist and militant „Antifa“ forces, indoctrinated school classes, Marxist priests with their also indoctrinated parishes join forces with the official administration – and in the future also with the police – against those who simply rally for Germany to keep its German character. This mess is called „Aufstand der Anständigen“ (Rise of the Righteous).
To provide oneself with a more adequate picture of his country’s very own history, one has to really be both courageous and creative. There is a newspaper which is in fact just a little bit more right-winged than the Allied-licensed press cartel (Junge Freiheit). It comes out weekly on Fridays. Sometimes when I wanted a copy, all the copies from my local kiosque were sold out by Friday 12:00 and no copies were left. This wasn’t because of a high demand for the paper but because the copies were not delivered to the kiosque – some leftist working for the delivery company had got behind what was in the package and simply annihilated it. In another press shop I asked for that newspaper and almost was kicked out by the shopkeeper, who then got a highly red head and almost wasn’t able to speak properly how much she despised of „people reading such papers“, and she „didn’t want to have to do with such papers“.
And the Junge Freiheit is long not capable of providing you the entire picture. Articles on general history dealing with the national socialist epoque are quite sparse. I most profited from reading the „Deutsche Geschichte“, a revisionist magazine which appears six times a year. The Editor reported of one case in which shopkeepers were threatened to get their shops burnt down by Leftists for just having the Deutsche Geschichte in its shop! The Editor also organizes meetings with Revisionist experts. Those meetings regularly have to be cancelled, as there are Leftists who „inform“ the hotel owners on what kind of historical views their guests have, and then the hotel clerks refuse to grant access for the referents.
This is also the way Leftists deal with unwelcome political forces such as „Die Freiheit“ (which internally is, in fact, more liberal than the CDU) or „Pro Deutschland“. These groups are simply unable to find a location to conduct their party meetings at because the location owners always get „informed“ and then act as expected. Nobody can publicly allow himself to be courageous, as reputation can – and will – be immediately destroyed. Would you want to resist a force which is willing to rip you off everything you own and even threatens to harm your home and family?
The head of the right-wing NPD, Udo Voigt, also once got kicked out of a hotel where he was spending his vacation. The hotel owner’s „explanation“ was that the other hotel guests’ right for an undisturbed stay at the hotel would outweigh the right of Mr. Voigt to stay in the hotel. Furthermore, as a private businessman he was able to decide who he wanted to have business with and with whom not. Mr. Voigt went to a court, which ruled that the hotel owner was right in doing so.
Such was the state of the German Nation in the past decade, and the actual decade is far from doing any better.
