Sad news from the other side of the Atlantic

A comrade has fallen...

The famous Wotanist and BRUDER SCHWEIGEN member David Lane died during his sleep under "strange" (But not suprizing) conditions few days ago.

Statement taken from http://www.davidlane1488.org/

"May 28th 2007 - It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to our Brother, Friend, Dad, Hero "David Lane".. Our Hearts are broken and our family has lost someone who can never be replaced."

Here is the story & details about his death from Tom Metzger

"Recently David Lane 69 year old ORDER MEMBER was advised that he would be transferred from Federal Prison in Florence Colorado to an unknown destination. We both assumed due to age and poor health it would be a lower security institution.

David called me a few days ago and told me he was being shipped to the notorious Federal Prison at Terre Haute, Indiana. This prison David says was a gathering point for what the Oligarchs call Terrorists.Not a place for an older man with a bad heart. David said "we are all considered domestic terrorists now."He said he just hoped that the middle of the night trip would not include a black box they put over your arms and wrists that forced an extremely tortuous position.

David called the entire thing the DEISELING method of breaking or torturing prisoners.I told David that as soon as he was settled I would visit him since the prison is only a 3 hour drive.Several days past with no word. Then upon returning home from town two days ago there was a message on my phone machine. It was David but if you don't physically enter a code he cannot talk to you or leave a message. His voice sounded encouraging and in good spirits and I expected a call a bit later. It did not come.

This morning I received a call from April Gaede who had been contacted by the prison Chaplin who told her David was dead.The Federals murdered David as sure as they had put a gun to his head. There was absolutely no reason to transfer him unless it be to a lower security prison. They knew how bad his heart was but they did it anyway.We probably will never know what they did to him at Terre Haute. I assume it was fairly rough treatment.Never Forgive Never Forget. AVENGE OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS."

David Lane is finally free!! His passionate fight will not be Forgotten, his untamed spirit will be always a source of inspiration for us!

Wulf Sörensen's "Voice of Our Ancestors"

Here is an online version of "Voice of Our Ancestors". Many(Including myself) believes that Wulf Sörensen was a nickname of the famous Reichsführer-SS Henrich Himmler. Truth or not, "Voice of Our Ancestors" is worth reading it anyway. Here you`ll find also a foreword made by the Political Prisoner David Lane.

The truly admirable story behind ABSU's "Tara" cover painting

I`m sure that most of you are familiar with the latest album of ABSU named "Tara" and for sure you must know as well the famous artist KRIS VERWIMP. He is responsible for several covers in the Black Metal scene(Moonblood, Immortal, Marduk, Night Conquers Day e.t.c.). I always liked the art of this guy and i oftenly checking his website for the latest news, covers e.t.c. Today i noticed something which definately suprized me.

"I had already planned a trip to Ireland when I received a letter from Absu. Tara was one of the places I wanted to visit in Ireland, so when I read that Absu were doing a concept album about this place, I immediately got an idea. It's one of those strange coincidences that occur sometimes. When I was on the Hills of Tara, I collected some soil from the place where the high kings were seated. I also collected soil from the place where the Stone Of Destiny stands and from other parts of the site. Later, when I got back home, I mixed the soil with water and acrylics in order to be able to paint with it. So using that mixture, I painted all the borders and artworks for the Tara CD. So there's really a physical connection between the cover art and the actual Tara itself. I think there is no greater tribute."

With this, Kris Verwimp show that he is a devoted artist with true dedication & respect about his painting art.

Ioannis Sikoutris-The Hellenic Idealist

Ioannis Sikoutris(1901-1937) was a Hellenic scholar, borned in Smirni (Now under Turkish occupation since 1922) and in 1919 moved in Athens. He wrote several works about Ancient Hellas and the Immortal Hellenic Fighting Spirit. His best works titled "Platonic Evangelism" and "Heroic Way of Life". At 1937, Ioannis Sikoutris in a very young age commited suicide. As usual, almost none of his works are translated in English. Below are in English some parts from his work "The Philosophy of Life" (Which is a part from the "Heroic Way of Life").

" The heroic perception of life commences from the principle that Life is a never-ending struggle, an unceasing and interminable fight against nature, against people and against ourselves. Thus men from every generation constitute a continuous transition to something else, something superior. Not a different kind of organic being (like, for example, Nietzsche's superhuman) but a conveyor - a carrier- of an inferior, i.e. an intense, richer life. This way every worthy man becomes a prodromos (a forerunner, a precursor) who drafts the meaning of his existence neither from the past, nor from the present but from the future. He neglects the past and finds him self in an enduring conflict with the present…"

"The Heroic man feels himself chosen by Destiny as a fighter and a martyr -more like a martyr, as he never counts success with direct results, with numbers and proportions he doesn't count it at all. He is the lightning rod that attracts voluntarily all the storms and thunders so that the homes of the peaceful can remain safe. The reason he does it is by no means some spirit of altruism or self-sacrifice for the rest. In his quest for danger he is dragged by an irresistible attraction, by the aesthetics, the fascination of danger, the sense that it is a prerogative of the exquisite ones (and not a duty, nor a philanthropy) to be crashed for the others, under the others- the most valuable privilege! The Heroic man is not the fruit or the flower -these represent the present and its implicit joy. He is the seed to be buried and rot in order for the blooming and fruitening to emerge. He is the one buried for the resurrection to be celebrated, and there is no resurrection without a burial…"

"The Heroic man does not ignore the pleasures of Life but he only tastes them as much as necessary to overcome them, he only knows them as much as necessary to understand that in principle they paralyze his strength rather than enhance it, regardless if they grand him a feeling of intensity and expectance. Even more, these pleasures are a quest and a goal for someone who desires to take from Life not for him who has something to give to Life - and a man does not get rich by taking but by giving…"

"He enjoys many aspects of life simultaneously and he enjoys them not as an aesthetic display or a satisfaction to his curiosity he experiences all these forms inside him, he integrates them and attributes them with his own, personal way. His soul looks like oleaginous, fertile soil where every seed easily blooms and gives fruit. Thus he transforms himself without ever losing it. This multiplicity though does not bring splitting or loss of personal basis, diffusion and blaring of the personal nucleus -these happen to ordinary people when they try to acquire multiple aspects and characters. For the heroic man multiplicity does not hinder centralization but makes it more evident and mightier. He would not be a hero if he didn't have a powerful personality, if he didn't have a powerful central ego ("ego" meaning here the personal character and not the origin of egoism) that restrains the adventures of the soul and the incidents of the surrounding world, the flinging (ephemeral tendencies) and the interests (cares) in a well tied unity, not just of time but of logic cohesion and moral necessity. His personality is so rich that every aspect of it could - and does for many- comprise a whole different world, independent from the world that could be found in another of his aspects. So it is not strange that many people find these parts uncompromising to each other. But the Heroic man does not look like the nice and quite carriage drivers that drive their carriages safe and slow on peaceful streets right up to the end that others have paved for them. No! He looks like the charioteer dominating over four or eight angry horses - each horse speeding uncontrollable to the direction it craves. He governs them with a strong arm without, though, extinguishing their momentum and mutinous ness (tendency to be disobedient, revolutionarism). Otherwise he would find no attraction in charioteering! He doesn't know of "safe and sound"! Indeed Fight and Danger is his element, his food. Fight and Victory, not success. Success is not always victory. Victory is external, it means getting rich in profits and achievements - like the records of the modern runners, measured by fractions of seconds. On the contrary, he seeks the victory of him who enjoyed the fighting, the risking, of him who saw victory as an opportunity to live intense and suspenseful moments. And by all means victory coexists with failure, failure of the objective, like the "failure" of the 300 Spartans at Thermopile…"

"…He gives the impression of a lunatic, a mad man and he is indeed a mad man. He has the insaneness of a child, lacking this over celebrated experience of reality, which is nothing more than idlesse (laziness, kowardness) and lack of faith. He is a child because he still believes and he believes unconditionally. He is the eternal youth - he has no need of caution and prudence, these are for the quiet who pace safe and sound on the walk of life. The Heroic man never paces, he dances!…"

"He is never deceitful, this is only for those who putter with the others in order to copy them, envy them, or both they do this out of necessity because their own personality is not rich enough to satisfy them. On the contrary, the Heroic man is the center of himself, free in his isolation, aristocratic through the distance he keeps from the rest, unabashed (steadfast) through the courage of his personal opinion and his personal responsibility, prideful in the impassable temple of his solitude. That is why he doesn't allow himself to envy or compete with the rest, he has no need to confirm himself by the acknowledgement of the rest, that is by his excellence…"

"He undertakes labor with unreserved eagerness he accepts it evidently and joyfully as it is heavy and difficult, and for him life is all about action and toil. He works driven by his desire to use his physical and spiritual powers and he works aesthetically, like an athlete. He thinks the same way about his mental labor he doesn't study in order just to write a book or to accomplish a deed - thoughts for him are lively experiences, not something he would write down. He wants to be wealthier inside, to become richer through the joy he gets from a demanding task. He disperses very keenly a multitude of personal thoughts and syllogisms (personal even when he obtains the roots of his thoughts from others), a multitude that would be enviously guarded by someone else as his personal belonging. But the Heroic man ignores envy, and this is completely natural he retains and enshrines the character and the charisma of a genuine aristocrat: his solitude, his avoidance of intermingling, his courage and his ability to condemn, his long-lasting devotion and his noble generosity. Above all he cherishes the feeling of his personal Honor and compared to this everything else, wealth education authority or health, are just zero…"

"Nowhere else is his pride more obvious than in the way he curries out the so called ideological fights. He never aims to win. What does it mean to win? His believes to be accepted? A tragedy! He knows very well what it cost him to acquire them, what boldness it requires -"sapere aude", says the ancient poet -, and what kind of inner maturity it requires. Thus he is more worried rather than glad for him who embraces his ideas by force or as a result of a short conversation. Maybe in order to find himself supporters? It is true that many feel the need to propagandize their ideas as if fearing that they are not correct without the affirmation of the others, the more the better. The Heroic man knows very well it is not the content of the ideas that really matter, but the spiritual might through which he conquered and holds them, not what you believe but how do you believe in it. He knows that your fundamental, vital convictions (believes) are controlled by your Destiny, and not the other way around and your Destiny is something profoundly personal, you cannot borrow it nor lend it. Thus when he defends his ideas he doesn't do it in order to impose them but in order for himself to remain who he is. And remaining who he is exactly what the others see as an act of war. His existence and only arouses hatred, he needs only to describe himself to evoke antipathy (dislike) -this is how great a part of the future he represents! Because the future is dark and most people are afraid of the dark, and fear turns into dislike…"

"The Heroic man's life can only be short. Short, but not always in the common sense - he can very well live for many years but these years are never enough compared to the vastness of his vigorousness. Anyway, age is relevant. It is not measured by duration rather by substance. It is a moral not an astronomical concept. Though, usually, it is also short with in the common meaning of the term because the Heroic man spends his life in the hazardous front of battle. It is short because he is always in love with Death ("erasthithanatos")! He walks to Death not to rest, not because he is bored of living, not because he dismayed (became a coward) in front of it or because his strength faded. The Heroic man is not subject to Death! For him death is not suffering but acting! It is his final act that seals and gives meaning to all his previous acts. Life is an incessant beginning, and this beginning acquires its significance from the End, the End that is determined from this very beginning. Death is the End as well as the completion!…"

"Voluntary or not the Heroic man's Death is always like the explosion of a volcano. Suddenly his life's vessel ruptures and crashes smashing everything around it, covered in flames it burns everything else, illuminating it grants Light - and frightens the cowards and the humbles. Fury of the Lord….."

The Last Survivor from Fuhrer`s Bunker

Some weeks ago there was documentary in Hellenic Tv about "The last survivor from Hitler`s Bunker". It was about the Life of Rochus Misch, the Fuhrer`s bodyguard which is still alive till these days. To my suprize , the documentary was pretty good! The local journalist visited Rochus Misch at his home in Berlin and did an in-depth interview with him about his life as Fuhrer`s bodyguard. The questions was really good and the whole conversation turned out very intresting.

Some days before documentary play in local tv , a comrade sent me a link to inform me about what day and hour exatly this will be played. I did not checked the link as the documentary was already widely advertized and it was already in my attention. Today , i found the link again and noticed that there is an english version there with photos, trailers and online interview with Rochus Misch. I`m pretty sure that many of you would like to see it:

To the suprize of many, R.Misch remain untill today a loyal SS man. He never did any apologizing statement, never regret that he was in Leibstantadarte SS "Adolf Hitler" , he still speaks with pride about his days there which described them as "The best period in my life". As you can see in documentary & Photos , R.Misch keep visitng the place that the bunker was and telling to the people that visiting the place (Turists , schools e.t.c.) the truth about the SS, Fuhrer , the last days in bunker e.t.c.

Rochus Misch was, is and he will always be a true SS man! Heil!

ALATRISTE: A Triumph of Honour, Courage and Patriotism!

I finally managed to see the film "Alatriste". For those who have not heard of it yet , the film potray the life of Alatriste, a Spanish Captain and war veteran who lived in Spain of 1600`s .As i was expected it , the film is simply amazing! Vigo Mortensen (Which plays the role of "Alatriste") have done again an excellent performance.Another postive aspect is that the whole film is maded in Spanish language.

Searching in internet more info about the film, i found some very intresting things which i was not aware before. "Alatriste" is actually the hero of a novel series of a Spanish author named Arturo Perez-Reverte. The other 2 parts are "The Sun over Breda" and "Purity of Blood".
Here is a review for the book "Captain Alatriste" that will give you an idea also how the movie goes:

"Perez-Reverte wrote the Captain Alatriste seies as a homage to the adventure books that had been his own initiation into the world of reading as a boy - books such as Dumas's The Three Musketeers. Captain Alatriste is a swordsman for hire in Spain in the 1620s - a time when Court intrigue was high and the decadent young king had dragged the country into a series of disastrous wars. As a hired 'blade', Alatriste becomes involved in many political plots and must live by his wits. He comes face to face with hired assassins, court players, political moles, smugglers, pirates and of course, the infamous Spanish Inquisition... All the stories are told by Inigo Balboa, Alatriste's young page. The cast of characters also includes Quevedo, an irrepressible subversive poet who likes to start fights in the local tavern, the kind-hearted innkeeper and ex-prostitute who shares Alatriste's bed, the elegant Count of Guadalmedina, the beautiful but deadly Angelica de Alquezar, and a whole host of underworld figures."
More info about the author you can find here : http://www.perez-reverte.com/

Its the first time that i come in touch with this author, so for sure i`m not the perfect guy to give you more details about his books.Though , i hope the books to be already translated in other languages as it will be something that i`ll for sure look to read in the near future.

If you want more info about "Alatriste" , wikipedia have many details about the film and links for trailers e.t.c.

Another reccommended film which the praise the values of Honour, Courage, Patriotism, the life code and fighting spirit of the real European man!

Dark Hellenic Romanticism

How many of you are familiar with the Hellenic Writer, Philosopher and Poet Nikos Kazantzakis? He is the creator of many novels , poetry e.t.c. Also apart from his works, he did several translations like Dante`s Divine Comedy, works of Gothe e.t.c. His most famous novels amongst the Non-Hellenic people are two of them that become movies. "The Last Temptation of Christ" (W.Dafoe) and "Zorba" (Anthony Queen). Nikos Kazantzakis (1883-1957) is a very famous writer inside Hellas. Though, most people in the world are not really familiar with his best works. Here is the link that you can read in English (Thanx to Nikos G.) one of them titled "Askitiki-Salvatores Dei" :

N.Kazantzakis was a very controversial writer. It was like different worlds was fighting each other inside his mind. One thing is sure, it definetely worth to give some of your free hours to read his works. If you like Nietzche, Gothe or Schopenhauer , then i`m pretty sure that Kazantzakis will appeal to you a lot!

Unfortunately, most people are not familiar with with the Hellenic Romantic Movement of the 1800`s and 1900`s (Up to 1950). There is not many things translated in English. Me and some other comrades here, we plan for the future to start translating works from various writers, fighters & poets. So everybody intrested , have an eye on this blog. Also , be sure that everytime that i`m finding something translated in English, i`ll be posting it directly here in every detail.
