    Define the German(ic) spirit

    What is the German or Germanic spirit? What are its highest ideals? What typifies German or Germanic achievements and the attitudes of German or Germanic people? What distinguishes the German(ic) character from that of other peoples? What do you admire most about the German(ic) spirit? Try to discuss the two (German and Germanic spirit) separately if you feel there is a difference. Feel free to define either one or both! I know it's quite open-ended, but I'm excited to hear you ideas! </IMG>

    Re: Define the German(ic) spirit

    The Germanic spirit exemplifies the will to Purity [cf., Tacitus' observations on the relatively unmixed German race in his 'Germania'].

    Purity in purpose; the constant drive to single-minded action.
    Cleanliness in body and mind.

    Loyalty always; loyalty to the homeland, the ancestors, the clan, the kingroup. Loyalty to the Blood; Loyalty to the Brother & to the Sister.
    Loyalty to the Leader - even unto Death.

    Courage in the face of Death.
    Fearlessness.

    Contempt towards all that is inferior.
    Complete lack of fellow feelings towards everything that is anti-German and non-German.

    Rejection of all Universalism and affirmation instead of particularism.
    Germany itself is the Universe; all the rest are alien planets to be regarded with distrust and hostility.

    Masculinity; complete rejection of all effeminate, touchy-feely postures.
    Worship of strength and power.

    Discipline above all; the Commanding and obeying taken to fine arts.

    The military art in extremis; the Prussian.

    The true heirs of the ancient Greeks in terms of high European culture.

    The nation of philosophers.

    The nation of musicians.

    Racial perfection of the Nordic type.

    Germans are spiritual, mystical, but not given to the excessive superstitions of the Celts [cf., Caesar's 'Gallic War'].

    The Germans are Faustian [just as the Greeks were Promethean].

    The Faustian Germans embody evil and seek to overcome every taboo.

    The German race is the inventive race par excellence.

    The German spirit is an exploratory spirit.

    In the Germans, the Aryan race has reached its highest apogee.

    The Germans will and must rule, as they are born to this fate [just as it is the fate of their eternal enemies to prevent them].
    Why are there beings at all, & why not rather nothing?
    [Leibniz/Heidegger]
