    Lightbulb Beautiful quote

    There I stood in Innsbruck and saw 30,000 deploying farmers. 30,000 German farmers and each of them more Germanic than all German senior masters together. It was egregiously beautiful. Ethnologically it was a wonder and artistically nothing else. Goths, Baiuvarii, Alemanni, as distinguishable from each other as in nil after Christ. Farm labourers from the Sarn valley looked more noble than English Lords and indeed are more noble. The German emperor with his staff and all counts and barons of Brandenburg are bourgeoisie compared to those grand men of Dietrich von Bern. My old belief, that only the farmer upholds the race has found its shining affirmation and I have been happy and proud to see for three hours, as a German, what our folk once was before baker-bellies and savants´ glasses disfigured it. My god, was it beautiful! To be allowed to see with own eyes what already had excited a Dürer and Riemenschneider. 30,000 bellicose Germanic farmers, Goths conserved in glacial ice!

    Our real problems, in fact, started with the over-population, industrialization, and urbanization. People becoming alienated from nature, soil, physical work, and the fruits of their labor. The instincts of a city dweller in a 50m² apartment are typically not more intact than the one of their pets that live under similar conditions of domestication.

    True, but we also have to consider that an industrialized country will always be superior to an unindustrialized. From an evolutionary point of view, industrialization has been something necessary.

    True, true. Progress can't be reversed, for sure. However, the new technology opens chances for long-term sensible restructuring, as far as sensible community sizes are concerned. In general, villages and small towns where people stay in contact to nature and are an integrated part of a biological-organic community and where they have a face that can be identified and thus are held responsible for their actions on a social level are preferrable to metropolises. The latter, supported by the conditions of anonymity and atomization it creates, making persons replaceable parts, appears to be responsible for really most negative consequences of today's society, in particular alienation from the folk and deterioration of central values and morals.

    Increased mobility means that people can live on the country-side and work farther away; a larger information sector means that many people are and will be able to work and to study from home using network structures. Perfect for the family and the children.

    This would need some planning on a larger community level, as at the same time Verhüttelung should be avoided, but on the long run I would consider it highly desireable to reduce the population size of the big cities and to bring people once more into contact with nature and to integrate them into smaller organic folk communities, as the traditional village used to be.

    Very good post. I think if the situation continues, people will leave the big cities voluntarily. City air makes free once was the parole but now we can observe a constant escape (Stadtflucht) from the large urban territories in Germany. Who still wants (or can afford) to live in the Ruhrpott or in Berlin nowadays? Rosenberg also wrote a lot about this in the Myth of the 20th century.
    Leave the metropolises to the immigrants. They will crush sooner or later and we can build them up in a more reasonable order.

    btw. here is the original German quote to the above posted:

    How so? In terms of military power, well that's a given. But would an unindustrialized nation of people, with green minds and earthen bodies (so to speak), really care about the superiority of an industrialized nation?

    What has indistrialization broght humanity in reality? Sure, we got steel, which the manufacturing of creates unbelievable amounts of pollution. And that steel was used to create vehicles, such as trains, planes, cars, all of which release massive amounts of pollution as a byproduct. Those items require fuel, and in order to aquire that fuel, more polluting machinery has to be made to suck it out of the ground, and refine it. Hello more pollution, and hello to the beginning of the depletion of those natural resources. Of course, if humans would in general, keep their pants zipped and stop breeding at such an alarming rate (And I can assure you, it is not wholesome Europeans doing the majority of this breeding, unfortunately) then our resources would not be depleting at the rate that they are, and things would be more balanced.

    Of course, I know fully well the relatively superficial gains that we have gotten from the industrialization of planet Earth. But to look at it more objectively; what we really did was made this planet entirely too small and unable to sustain our exponentially growing numbers. Indistrialization made thigns more convienant for humans in the short term, but sounded the death knell of humanity in the long run, at least humanity as it is known today...
