    My top 5, in no particular order:

    2. Men Among the Ruins - Julius Evola
    3. The Decline of the West - Oswald Spengler
    4. Man and Technics - Oswald Spengler
    5. Myth of the Twentieth Century - Alfred Rosenberg
    Yep, that sounds all good to me, except from the book of Evola, but only, because I don't no it.

    I would also add all other works of Spengler, especially Prussianism and Socialism, but also other politicals works like Hour of Decision or Neubau des Deutschen Reiches.

    (Huntington is a bit a "Spengler for poor people", just as Harry Potter is "Tolkien for poor peaple". LOL)

    I also enjoyed H. St. Chamberlain's Die Grundlagen des 19. Jahrhunderts, very good and fresh written, though not clear enough and outdated in some anthropological details (it was written around 1900!).

    Moeller van den Bruck's works also are at least nice to read.

    Of course, great parts of the German racialist literature of the Twenties ans Thirties are political and philosophical in some respect (Günther, Clauß).

    BGE is definitely a favourite, along with 'The Will to Power.'

    'The Decline of the West' is brilliant. I have not read it word for word, though. When I buy a copy and read it more closely, I aim to remain extremely critical. Fundamentally, according to Hitler for one, the book is pessimistic. I assume we are almost all, here, operating on the assumption that this 'decline' may possibly be halted and even turned into an 'ascent of the West' (I found his examination of the cultural/racial element in different peoples' mathematical systems, particularly, intriguing.)

    Of course I'm fond of texts like 'Mein Kampf,' 'The Prince,' 'The Republic' etc.

    I wonder if anyone knows of a book 'The School for Dictators,' by Ignazio Silone? It takes a critical look at Mussolini and Hitler from a contemporary perspective. It is written in the form, albeit modern, of a platonic dialogue. One of the speakers is a would-be fascist dictator! It was written in 1939. 'Tis an interesting, and quite funny, read


    Currently my philosophico-religious interests have been spanning into the realm of the final fate of the universe (or intelligent life within it). Men with the vision of Freeman Dyson fill me with optimism about the possible invincibility of human will. He speculates on ways we might survive in Big Crunch and Heat Death scenarios, respectively. The following text is, mostly, quite readable to the layman - ignore the hard physics, or just make an effort to grasp the basic points they elucidate:

    http://www.aleph.se/Trans/Global/Omega/dyson.txt

    I think the above paper (a set of lectures, actually) verges on being a philosophical text, in the same way as Darwin's 'The Origin of Species' does.

    Off and on, I'm working my through the texts on this page, from where I got the Dyson article:

    http://www.aleph.se/Trans/Global/Omega/


    Thinking along these lines is probably the ultimate expression of the questing, Aryan spirit. I think the true Aryan never loses that childlike wonder in staring at the nightsky.

    (I realise the last half of my post may have gone somewhat off the topic of the thread. I was thinking of making a thread dealing with this very subject alone, however I doubt it would receive great interest. While it is not racialist in direction, I feel this this branch of science is fundamentally Aryan in inspiration. The grandview almost always seems to be elaborated by the Aryan - non-Aryans are there just to do the math)

    The "pessimism" of Spengler is what National Socialists and some others criticized mostly. I've got some Spengler-critical books of writers with a völkisch position who appreciate Spengler's great merits but make some good points what one can do positively and actively against the "Decline of the West" when one has at least theoretically the cognition and knowledge about the deep origins of many symptoms of what we call the "Decline of the West".

    One must say that until now - 21st century - Spengler was absolutely right - even more and worse than he could think of (E. g. Spengler mentions the coming clash between the white, Western world and the arising and awakening coloured races. He couldn't think of a situation where the Western, white people are infiltrated and destroyed by a "peaceful" mass-immigration of the non-whites - that's the reality of today!). If there will be no real deep change in all aspects of our mental and material life the Untergang des Abendlandes will come.

    Spengler gave us the great view of what is really going on. Spengler was right but those who criticized his "pessimism" in some aspects and made alternatives were also. We need on a higher level a synthesis of both views; and from this theoritical position we then must be able to shape a positive will out of our cognition and to transform our will into real political action: into the white, supranational "movement".

    You're very right, brother! But if this political process doesn't work, though, the continued existence of the purest white Europids of eugenic quality and an innate sense of racial discrimination must still be secured, at ANY cost.

    I agree. It's just very hard to find people willing to pay the cost.

    It would be worthwhile to post something here.
    But before it is posted, I say my favourite text, and the only one which I have read, other then BGE by Nietzsche, is Decline of the West by Spengler. It is recommended for everyone who is interested in reading about history and world, and a frank, unbiased account of the spiritual element in every Culture's folk.

    I am think of writing and developing a website on him, infact.

    Ok, now for my turn

    Human, All too Human - Nietzsche
    On the Geneology of Morals - Nietzsche
    Imperium - Francis Parker Yockey (Thorburnulf - there's your synthesis)
    White Power - George Lincoln Rockwell
    What is to be Done? - VI Lenin (practically a textbook on revolutionary organisation )
    The Anti-Christ - Nietzsche
    The Open Society and Its Enemies - Karl Popper
    Dostoyevsky - Notes from the Underground

    I'd also include Men Amongst the Ruins but I've only read Troy Southgate's chapter by chapter summary, not the actual book - but it's still good.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Yockey is in Germany as good as unknown. I only know his name from websites in English language, such as this one for example. He isn't mentioned in intellectual debates, even among "right-wingers". Race is here a taboo in all discussions. I figured out through the Internet that there must have been a German translation of Imperium in the Seventies through a right-wing publishing house, but it seems that it is a quite "unprimed" version and only includes comparetively harmless passages about world politics in the cold war. However, even this book wasn't reprinted anymore and is hard to get.

    What I read from and about him in the Internet, seems quite excellent and intelligent for me, and I'll try to get Imperium into my hands in the next times. I know, the whole book is already somewhere in the Net, but I don't love reading hundreds of pages and voluminous texts on the computer - and: already the cover design of the book is worth owning it, lol.
    Normally it's no problem to order English books in Germany, but non of the importeurs in book-shops have got it. Seems that I'll have to register at Amazon.com or order it directly at Noontide. Aaahr... I hate such complications.


    As I see your note of Lenin's "What is to be done?" as practically a textbook of revolutionary organisation, I'll have to think of a well written little book that is practically a textbook of political propaganda and political party work: Joseph Goebbels' Kampf um Berlin (Struggle for Berlin) where he writes about his time as Gauleiter in Berlin from 1926 until 1932. When he arived in Berlin in 1926 the party only had a few hundred members, and the city was completely red. And the party had at the Reichstag election even less voters than members (what means that even not all members believed so much in the party that they moved their asses to the polls)! It's very instructive - independent from the whole Nazi thing - to read how he made out of such a poor little troop a strong party of which the city talked of and how he resisted against enemies that were much more powerful.

    Thorburnulf - I've got Imperium in English hosted on my website in PDF file:

    http://members.odinsrage.com/superman/Imperium.pdf

    I am God It's about 300 pages on the computer. You could probably take it to a printing company and they'd print all of it for you inexpensively, I managed to get a book that was 470 pages printed for $25 Australian dollars (that's about $17 US).

    Umpf, that's all to complicated for me. It's a good thing that it's available in the Net, but I ain't a friend of the idea printing it out of the net. I think it's already more complicated to find here a company that does such stuff than to order it from the US. And no printing company here will make me a cover with such a nice Imperial-NS style eagle growing out of a column as the Noontide edition has got. It's really lovely, because publishing houses here normally don't dare to design such covers. I will love reading the book in the Busses and Subway lines with people throwing a look at the title and then shaking their head.

    lol, I must think of the German edition of the "Turner Diaries" which I printed out here for me quite a time ago. The bundle of paper still lies and flys around here, cause I'm too lazy to go in a copy shop where they could bind the whole thing together in a board cover.
