    Walther Darre's 'Blut und Boden' (Blood & Soil) Movement

    Walther Darre expressed the idea of blut und boden, namely that a surten race is best of in their native soil, like Germanics in Germania for example, I kind of like that.. being that my peope lives with 10 000 years of continious history around the doorstep, dolmens, hillforts, Cathedrals, Castles and Monasteries e.t.c. and the blessing of not having any negroid or Orientalid faces to watch every morning...

    Blood & Soil Philosophy

    The German is 'Blut und Boden'. In foundational terms it expresses the primitive relationship between the Earth and the Folk. It therefore adverts to the anti-capitalist sub-text of our kind of Nationalism. Blood and Soil decribes the unbroken link between man and soil, between man and Nature.

    'We need a better knowledge of man,
    Health through natural living,
    Harmony between Blood, Soil and Cosmos,
    Life reform as National aim,
    Knowledge and Life,

    The Rule of the Living'. [R.Steiner 1939]


    Richard Walther Darre of the Nazi Party made the phrase famous with his book 'Neuadel aus Blut und Boden' ('A New Nobility of Blood and Soil') of 1930.

    An anecdote: "At the Nuremberg Trial in 1948, the judge leaned over and asked Darre's defence lawyer, 'Exactly what IS "Blood and Soil"?' In response, the lawyer slammed down photographs of sturdy peasant men behind the plough, and healthy peasant women with their children, and said, 'THIS, my lord, this is Blood and Soil' ". [A. Bramwell, 'Blood and Soil']

    "Blood and Soil describes the link between those who held and farmed the land and whose generations of blood, sweat and tears had made the soil part of their being, and their being integral to the soil". [ib.,]

    And also, those same tillers of the soil would have been buried in it at their death ... From this aspect then, we have a number of implications; not only of race and nation, but also Spiritual implications when thinking of the burial of the dead. Going beyond that, there is also a philosophical aspect - one thinks of the Ground of Being and Heideggerian philosophy.
    Blood and Soil as foundational metaphysics of racial nationalism.

    That's why I said it is an over-arching philosophy; it is relevant, not only to the ancient tribal consciousness, but to the Romantic imagination, and to the evolution of National Socialism, as well as to the development of modern Nationalism.

    "One pan-European nationalist group of the 1980s proclaimed 'Blood and Soil' to be: 'What WE mean by nation, everything we got from the magic fluid of our ancestors, and from our sacred land: these are the eternal truths the Marxists can never know'."[ib.,]

    Let Blood and Soil be a test - those who deny its relevance or its meaning are not Racial Nationalists; indeed, what are they?

    In Russian philosophy we have a notion similar to "Blood and Soil" called narodnost, which is basically a difficult word to try to translate into English. It was first put forward by the Slavophiles of the early 19th century.

    I note that Blood and Soil [BAS] philosophy has a wide appeal, recommending itself to all kinds of Nationalists as the responses to this thread have shown.

    BAS can be taken in many different directions, of course.
    Darre, the populariser of BAS had his own specific ideas which, as Troy Southgate reminds us [see link provided by Siegfried], did not always see eye to eye with Hitler's objectives, even though both Darre and Hitler were ultimately coming from a BAS perspective.

    Darre said;

    "A State consists of three things:
    A people,
    Their national territory, and
    A State Authority.
    These three things possess an internal connection.
    It is precisely this connection between the people and its territory and political order that gives that order its particular characteristics ...
    "
    [Darre 1935]

    "Darre argued that Capitalism destroyed the peasantry, by splitting farmers from their land, by encouraging a mercantile attitude ...
    National renewal was impossible without the 'life-source', the peasantry ...
    "
    [Bramwell]

    As Darre himself said;
    "If we want to build a truly populist state, then we must build it from the agricultural realm."
    [Darre 1941]

    Of course, these are fine words - but how to put them into practice in a world which had already been industrialised, and was even then broaching technocracy?

    "Darre proposed to form Hereditary Holdings [Hegenhofe].
    Society would be divided into corporations, each forming a self-governing chamber, and only farmers from a Hegehof would have a vote ...
    Primogeniture would be introduced ...
    Foreclosure and sale of farms would be forbidden.
    Younger sons would form the militia and the governing class, leading to the gradual formation of a peasant state within a state ...
    An autarkic trade structure would help defend the peasant from destructive mercantilist forces ...
    The new peasant nobility, secure in its inalienable farmstead, would replace the existing old, worn-out, despised ruling class. It would also correct the tendency of the 'best blood' to die out through warfare and lower birth-rates ...
    "
    [Bramwell]

    From this new peasant nobility would be formed a 'Chamber of Nobles'; here Darre acknowledged his debt to Plato's idea of the Guardians in his 'Republic'.
