    The Pan-Europeanism of Coudenhove-Kalergi

    The Pan-Europeanism of Coudenhove-Kalergi

    This idea of Pan-Europeanism, in the form of Coudenhove-Kalergi, is the opposite of a positive European spirit for all people, nations and racial types of Europe we should approach and its interesting to hear his "prophetic calls"...

    The Pan-Europe of Coudenhove-Kalergi existed between 1920 and 1940 and propsed a form of Pan-Europeanism which opposed Nazi 'aryanism in favour of a united European race.
    This was a Liberal approach which wouldnt have cared for European racial unit neither. Not just panmixture of Europeans, but Eurasians and beyond being accepted or even promoted. So European panmixture rather as a first step to worldwide panmixture without any real efforts to care for the Europeans further racial existence even.

    Coudenhove-Kalergi held some controversial, less known, opinions about race mixing and the role of the Jews. In his book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism, Wien/Leipzig 1925, pages 20, 23, 50) he wrote:
    "The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today's races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals."
    "Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility through spiritual grace. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation."
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard...e_and_the_Jews

    This ideas coming clearly from a Liberalcapitalist who wanted a plutocratic rule of a bourgeois society which main "values" would have been centered around economic success and gaining profits.
    He recognised a truth but evaluated it in a very specific way. A good example of how the same facts can be interpreted differently morally from a subjective point of view.
    Its anti-biological, even self-destructive, but what to say against someone who just accepts individual actors and thinks of humans as individual actors in the bourgeois cultural facades he prefers? Obviously that leads again to the great distinction between individualist and collectivist approaches to political evaluations.

    Just to make clear what this Kalergi "Pan-Europeanism" is about. This idea of a petty minded bastard masses living under the control of a Jewish dominated Liberalcapitalistic plutocracy being obviously the opposite of my ideals.

    There could be other Pan-European or better just European approaches though and they being seen by me much more positive on the very long run. However, the preservation of the national and racial diversity seems to be a good and natural protection against the Liberalcapitalistic occupation and degeneration, of course, thats the reason they want to destroy it. In later times, in many centuries or even thousands of years, this entities might be replaced by a larger organisational unit, but now this wouldnt make any sense, especially not in the context of a Liberalcapitalistic system, which is highly destructive and doesnt just lead to partially mixture, but long term outbreeding of everything relatively pure and of real value in Europeans.

    AW: The Pan-Europeanism of Coudenhove-Kalergi

    Actually those text extracts make me wonder some things.
    How can this "ideology" can be called pan Europeanism when it is basicly just secular jewish racist liberalcapitalism was the first question that came to my mind. The second one was if Jews were also supposed to interbred with other races and the third is not really a question but some things I simply consider as wrong like calling this "future race" similar in appearance to the ancient Egyptians. Those were a predominantly Europid people which was totally different in appearance of those present-time people, the indio-european-negro mix races in south america like caboclos, who come her dystopia nearest.

    Eventually I think we can all agree that her so called ideology is liberalcapitalistic cow pat.

    Sv: The Pan-Europeanism of Coudenhove-Kalergi

    Obviously, at base his ideas of European unity, and furthering the case of Europe, allowing her to reach her full potential is sympathetic. What's problematic is, as has been pointed out by Agrippa, that he conceives all this, in the typical liberal manner, in completely soulless and purely economic terms, completely without regard for what may be termed 'the spirit of Europe', which is what has spurred her on to greatness in past times.

    It is also somewhat tragic that a nobleman, instead of remaining standing upright with the dignity befitting a true aristocrat, should assume so defeatist a position with respect to the Jews having overtaken the position of the ruling class of Europe: "Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility through spiritual grace. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation."

    Furthermore, this is of course pure speculation, but as his father was of European descent while his mother apparently was Japanese it isn't unlikely that his seemingly almost obsessive attachment to the idea of miscegenation was something of a misdirected attempt at making sense of his own race, or rather lack thereof. This is probably how this man and his positively ridiculous ideas about race are best understood.

    Thumbs Down Re: The Pan-Europeanism of Coudenhove-Kalergi

    it reminds me much of what nietzsche said about this issue, probably he was still under the influence of his idolatry and love toward some jewish "beauties" :

    http://www.geocities.com/thenietzschechannel/human8.htm

    human too human 475

    European man and the abolition of nations.— Trade and industry, the post and the book-trade, the possession in common of all higher culture, rapid changing of home and scene, the nomadic life now lived by all who do not own land—these circumstances are necessarily bringing with them a weakening and finally an abolition of nations, at least the European; so that as a consequence of continual crossing a mixed race, that of European man, must come into being out of them. This goal is at present being worked against, consciously or unconsciously, by the separation of nations through the production of national hostilities, yet this mixing will nonetheless go slowly forward in spite of that temporary countercurrent: this artificial nationalism is in any case as perilous as artificial Catholicism used to be, for it is in its essence a forcibly imposed state of siege and self-defense inflicted on the many by the few and requires cunning, force and falsehood to maintain a front of respectability. It is not the interests of the many (the peoples), as is no doubt claimed, but above all the interests of certain princely dynasties, and of certain classes of business and society, that impel to this nationalism; once one has recognized this fact, one should not be afraid to proclaim oneself simply a good European and actively to work for the amalgamation of nations. The Germans are, through their ancient and tested quality of being the interpreter and mediator between peoples, able to be of assistance. — Incidentally: the entire problem of the Jews exists only within national states, inasmuch as it is here that their energy and higher intelligence, their capital in will and spirit accumulated from generation to generation in a long school of suffering, must come to preponderate to a degree calculated to arouse envy and hatred, so that in every nation—and the more so the more nationalistic posture the nation is again adopting—there is gaining ground the literary indecency of leading the Jews to the sacrificial slaughter as scapegoats for every possible public or private misfortune. As soon as it is no longer a question of the conserving of nations but of the production of the strongest possible European mixed race, the Jew will be just as usable and desirable as an ingredient of it as any other national residue. Every nation, every man, possesses unpleasant, indeed dangerous qualities: it is cruel to demand that the Jew should constitute an exception. In him these qualities may even be dangerous and repellent to an exceptional degree; and perhaps the youthful stock-exchange Jew is the most repulsive invention of the entire human race. Nonetheless, I should like to know how much must, in a total accounting, be forgiven a people who, not without us all being to blame, have had the most grief-laden history of any people and whom we have to thank for the noblest human being (Christ), the purest sage (Spinoza), the mightiest book and the most efficacious moral code in the world. Moreover: in the darkest periods of the Middle Ages, when the cloudbanks of Asia had settled low over Europe, it was the Jewish freethinkers, scholars and physicians who, under the harshest personal constraint, held firmly to the banner of enlightenment and intellectual independence and defended Europe against Asia; it is thanks not least to their efforts that a more natural, rational and in any event unmythical elucidation of the world could at last again obtain victory and the ring of culture that now unites us with the enlightenment of Graeco-Roman antiquity remain unbroken. If Christianity has done everything to orientalize the Occident, Judaism has always played an essential part in occidentalizing it again: which in a certain sense means making of Europe’s mission and history a continuation of the Greek.

    European Visions: The Visionary Coudenhove-Kalergi with Otto Von Habsburg

    European visions: The visionary Coudenhove-Kalergi with Otto Von Habsburg



    Otto Von Habsburg with chairman of the European Academy in Berlin,

    Eckart Stratenschulte


    100 year jubilee of CK’s birthday



    Public discussion in the European House [Europäisches Haus] in Berlin about the visionary Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi.
    ‘He who is not an optimist concerning the European effort, will always be on the wrong side’.
    This was only one of the evening’s central sentences spoken by Otto von Habsburg, honorary President of the Pan European Union, and son of the last Austrian Emperor.

    In a dialogue with Eckart Stratenschulte, leader of the European Academy, the 95 year old emperor son presented a collection of writings by the European visionary Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi (1894-1972).
    Kalergi, the founder of the Pan European Union was Otto von Habsburg’s mentor and model.

    Heinz Wimpissinger, General Secretary of Coudenhove-Kalergi European Society stated that Von Habsburg had picked up and continued the vision of the free unification of all European states already formulated in 1922.
    The emperor son called the time between 1979 and 1999, when he was a delegate and later president by seniority
    of the European Parliament, the happiest years of his life.
    Eckart Stratenschulte talked about the legendary ‘Pan European Picnic‘ in August 1989 in the Hungarian border town Sopron which led to the spontaneous opening of the iron curtain, and the mass flight of citizens of the German Democratic Republic [GDR - East Germany] to the West. Otto von Habsburg himself had been involved in preparing this event.
    He described his mentor Coudenhove-Kalergi as ‘a completely unselfish man’, who knew that he could only prepare, but would not be able to shape the European future. Von Habsburg sees himself as the ‘professional optimist’, who doesn’t allow him self to be knocked down by adversity.
    ‘Through 95 years I have seen much grow slowly which today is considered a matter of course.’

    Also Gerhard Sabathil, chairman of the representation of the European Commission, who took leave of his time in Berlin this evening, said that he would begin the new assignment which is waiting for him as director of planning and strategy of the General council of Foreign Relations in Brussels with great optimism.

    Translated from (official EU website): Europäische Visionen - Der Vordenker Coudenhove-Kalergi
    Balder Blog 25 april 2008 - EU ærer Coudenhove-Kalergi 18 april 2008 (Dansk oversættelse af ovenstående)

    Comment:
    The article above was published on an official page from the European Commission, but contrary to the stated purpose of the meeting, it tells us nothing about the works of Coudenhove-Kalergi, but reported only superficially.

    Read: Selected quotes from Coudenhove-Kalergi’s ‘Praktical Idealism’

    What is interesting about the article, is not so much it’s content, but the fact that this is another examle of the fact that Coudenhove-Kalergi is still held in great esteem in European circles, despite his confused racist and elitist teachings, which have certain uncanning similarities to Nazi ideology.
    It would be quite interesting to know if Coudenhove-Kalergi’s book Practical Idealism (1925) was mentioned at this meeting, if it at all went beyond the superficial report which leaves us with the impression of just another event where europhile bigwigs are praising each other.
    There is indeed a very high probability bordering to certainty, that it was not referred to, as it is neither mentioned on pages from the European Union, nor on the pages of the Pan European Movement, which was founded by Coudenhove-Kalergi, and supported with money from the notorious bankers Rothschild and Warburg.

    EU ideologist’s book banned in Germany
    In Germany this book is unofficially banned, though it is not on the official list of books censored by the German government, it is not possible to buy it in any bookstores in Germany, neither new nor used.
    The Nazi’s had a racial philosophy in which the Germanic or Aryan Race was thought of as superior, and they were concerned with breeding the right type of people.
    Rather less known it is, that Adolf Hitler’s contemporary Count Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, who is now regarded as one of the founding fathers of the present European Union, had ideas somewhat similar to these, this time however with the Jews as a predestined spiritual leader race [Führerrasse].

    Europe conquered by the Jews
    Coudenhove-Kalergi, credits the Jews with most of the European civilizations philosophical and humanistic attainments, and literally states that: ‘Europe has been conquered religiously by Jews’.
    Europeans are described as slave people who damaged ‘the spiritual master race‘, always jealous of the Jews, therefore eternally seeking to exterminate them.
    Then there is Coudenhove-Kalergi’s vision of the future population of Europe as ‘A Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its outward appearance to the Ancient Egyptians’, and his odd ideas about breeding useful races.

    I think one could really laugh at a lot of Coudenhoven’s self-important archaic style scribblings, if it wasn’t because a lot of people in high and influential quarters seem to take it all rather seriously.

    One world Government
    Coudenhove-Kalergi’s vision is that of a one world government, ruled by a spiritual elite, free masons and representatives of royalty and nobility, which ‘seizes the means of power of society: [gun] powder, gold, ink, and use them for the blessing of the general public.’
    Much of it sounds suspiciously similar to the development of the European Union today with the Lisbon Treaty as a decisive point of no return.
    And since Coudenhove-Kalergi is officially recognized and almost uplifted to sainthood by that same institution, I suppose one does not have to have a lot of fantasy to see a connection between Coudenhove-Kalergi’s philosemitic racism, and the strategies of the European Union.
    After the end of WWII, Nazism and Communism have slowly been replaced with this equally totalitarian utterly destructive and ugly philosophy.

    Anti European racism at the core of European policy - a deliberate strategy
    The fanatical campaigning and legislating of the European Union against real or perceived anti-Semitism, racism, islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia etc. becomes even more questionable when one realizes that the strategies from the EU are nothing but a different kind of racism, inspired by the philosemitic racist and supremacist philosopher Coudenhove-Kalergi, which seems to have the destruction of the European race, European nations, culture and identity as a prime objective.

    The introduction of large groups of muslim immigrants into all European countries, and eventually EU membership of Turkey and North Africa, seems to be one of the means by which this evil plot is to be realized.

    Richard Nikolaus Count Coudenhove-Kalergi

    There has been an attempt to define Coudenhove-Kalergi as the founder of the European Union because he was conveniently mixed race and the EU pushes a multicultural ideology.

    For a start they ignore hat Count Coudenhove-Kalergi had an aristocratic background which was like an ethnicity in itself. Though we see nationalism as right wing today, in the 19th and early 20th centuries it was divisive of existing states and subversive of regimes such as Habsburg Austria-Hungary. Coincidentally the Coudenhoves were politically loyal to the Habsburgs and the Habsburgs were forced to draw upon the suppport of Austrian Jewry. In this sense Coudenhove-Kalergi's philosemitism was grovelling. Privately he and his father held a position regarding Jews not unlike those of Nietzshe, Kevin Macdonald etc. That is the Jews are bigoted since antiquity and anti-Semitism such as Nazism is repugnant because it resembles Jewish bigotry. Coudenhove-Kalergi could face a jail term in parts of the European Union today merely for expressing his true opinion and his crimes would be self-reflection and nuance. The author disingenuously points out Coudenhove-Kalergi met with Mussolini and Hitler, not realising that Coudenhove-Kalergi is thus demonstrated to be an opportunist seeking support from racists such as Hitler. And he sought support for a geopolitical ideal not that "the man of the future will be a crossbreed" - actually a flawed scientific prediction based upon what had happened in the Hispanic Americas. Many people of Coudenhove-Kalergi's generation thought this was the inevitable future else it would be were it not resisted with race laws. Either way it was mediocre futurism of the day not some radical prediction nor did it lead to his views on the need for a fifth power bloc in Eurasia.

    For all his eccentricities Count Coudenhove-Kalergi belonged to an old European social order, at a time the old imperial culture was giving way to the mass media culture. Some figures such as Aleister Crowley and Salvador Dali fascinate us because they stood right at the edge with a foot on each side. Coudenhove-Kalergi does not however stand with them: his concerns were those of dispossessed aristocrats and a generation ruined by wars, whilst his dream was not a plebian mixed race republic but a restoration of the Carolingian empire as a counterpoint to Britain, America, Russia and Asia. It is only because he is forgotten that he can be politically exhumed and misrepresented.

    “The European question can be summoned in these three words: Unification or collapse”

    These words make Richard Nikolaus Count Coudenhove-Kalergi the very first modern European and standard-bearer of this idea, which he formerly describes as the “Paneuropean Movement”. Especially in the interwar years he spreads it wide, investing his entire fortune and 50 years of his life in this movement that exists until today. Many who know his name, see him as an important visionary who can be seen as one of the founding fathers of the European Union while others think that his style is pretentious and his thesis too vague. Unfortunately, many do not even know who he was and hence do not even have an opinion concerning his ideas. Consequently the question arises if Coudenhove-Kalergi can even be seen as influential in the process of Unification since influence requires popularity.

    Ironically, the European is born in Tokyo on 17 November 1894 as the son of an Austrian-Hungarian diplomat and his Japanese wife. Already few years after his birth, the family moves back to Bohemia where the young count grows up in the paternal palace in Ronsperg. Not only does the family have Greek and Dutch roots but also relatives living in England, Italy, Belgium, Spain and even in Norway. As a result, it comes as no surprise that Richard has no sense of belonging to any of these nations and starts thinking of Europe as a Union. Especially after the collapse of the Habsburg monarchy, all of a sudden making him a Czech citizen, national borders become even more absurd in his eyes.

    As a response to the horrors of the First World War, Coudenhove-Kalergi publishes an article in 1922 complaining about the meaninglessness of European wars and suggesting a pan-European union instead. This is the beginning of his movement, for which his name stands until this day. Only one year later he publishes his work “Pan-Europe”, explaining his visions in much detail and causing a great sensation all over Europe.

    Formally the “Paneuropean Union” is first founded in 1923 as the first international non-governmental organization, its goal being the unification of Europe. The first investor in this idea is the banker Max Warburg. He enables Coudenhove-Kalergi to establish his first office in Vienna and to win more members. In the following years, he begins travelling around Europe and presenting his ideas to a broader mass. Many important personalities, including Albert Einstein, Gustav Stresemann, Stefan Zweig and the French prime minister Edouard Herriot are counted to the group of his supporters.

    In 1929 Coudenhove-Kalergi’s ideas finally seem to get the recognition they deserve: the French prime minister Aristide Briand suggests a European state-union, inspired by Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi. He gets divided feedback: while Stresemann supports him, the British are sceptical and fear the end of their colonial kingdom. The idea is then slowly leaving people’s minds, especially after the death of Stresemann in October that year, the beginning of the economic crisis and the death of Briand two years later.

    Nevertheless, Coudenhove-Kalergi continues to hold speeches all over Europe and to write books, trying to convince as many people as possible that “the man of the future will be a crossbreed”. He also meets with Mussolini and later even with Hitler who at first both admire his work but then dismiss him as a dreamer. During the Second World War he lives in exile in New York, where he holds some lectures at NYU and gets a lot of attention from important Europeans such as Leon Blum, Paul-Henri Spaak and Winston Churchill.

    Around this time, Coudenhove-Kalergi’s influence decreases. Many politicians begin to implement their vision of Europe, leaving him out of the picture due to his lacking political influence. He plays a very small role in the development of the European Union and the “Pan-European Union” ironically loses its importance at the precise moment the idea of European integration is starting to get international recognition.

    Until this day, Kalergi remains a very controversial figure of the unification of Europe who is often forgotten in this context because he never actually held a government position. Still, his ideas strongly influenced the European discourse over decades and form the basis of European integration. Hence he can be seen as one of the founding fathers, if not the Founding Father himself, of the European Union.

    Coudenhove-Kalergi is one of those authors that is quoted the most, but hardly ever read by people on the right. A couple of quotes are isolated and spread as proof of the grand jewish plan that stands behind the European Union. I don't think we need this. There are plenty of reasons to attack the European Union; the argumentum ad Kalergium is a bit more easy though, for the intellectually lazy among us. I must admit, his words are tempting not to quote when you oppose the EU.
    I read an article a while ago called 'Eine notwendige Richtigstellung zu Coudenhove- Kalergi' by Marcel Grauf (Source for reference, it's not online). One of his main points was indeed that Kalergi's vision of a demographically mixed Europe was not so much a plan, or something that he embraced, but a prediction, not to mention a bad one as we can see. To refer to his work, when criticizing the EU is therefore somewhat self-defeating. Some of his other ideas might be interesting; I don't remember them very well though, I would have to read up on that again. It was something reminiscent of an aristocratic ideal at least.

    Otto von Habsburg was a bit more fash than people realise: he held Francisco Franco in a high regard and praised him for helping refugees. Habsburg said he was a dictator of the South American type but not totalitarian like Hitler. Nonetheless most people would place Hitler in the same category be it out of admiration or revulsion.

    Such facts are useful for hijacking and steering narratives, or alternatively for undermining left wing support for the EU.

    Has anyone seen Evola's interview with Coudenhove-Kalergi?
