Karl Popper : The Roots of Totalitarianism

Karl Popper is not just another jewish writter. He is the father of "open society" theory that together with The Frankfurt school of thought plays a major role in the nowadays politics worldwide. Liberal right, social democrats, capitalists, progressive left parties, communists and far leftist movements, anarchist groups ,writters and activists are all influenced by the ideas of Karl Popper.
Therefore its very intresting to see which are the dangers for these people and were for them their enemies traced back in history. Thats why,  starting from National Socialism,  they will always seek to eliminate any persons or movements that adopt such ideals. 
The following words are parts taken directly from karl popper's major work "Open Society and Its Enemies" that published in 1945.

 "This fundamental historical law forms, in Plato’s view, part of
a  cosmic  law—of  a  law  which  holds  for  all  created  or  generated 
things.  All  things  in  flux,  all  generated  things,  are  destined to
decay. Plato, like Heraclitus, felt that the forces which are at work
in history are cosmic forces."

 "Plato,  and  his  disciple  Aristotle, advanced the theory of the
biological and moral inequality of man. Greeks and barbarians are unequal  by  nature;  the  opposition  between  them  corresponds  to  that   between   natural   masters   and   natural   slaves.  The natural inequality of men is one of the reasons for their living together, for their natural gift are coplementary.Social life begins with natural  inequality, and it must continue  upon that foundation."

 "The  analysis  of  Plato’s  sociology  makes  it  easy  to  present  his  political  programme.  His  fundamental  demands can be expressed in either of two formulas, the first corresponding to his  idealist  theory of change and rest, the second to his naturalism. The idealist formula is: Arrest all political change!Change is evil, rest divine. All change can be arrested if the state is made an exact copy of its original, i.e.of the Form or Idea of the city. Should it be asked how this is practicable, we can reply with the naturalistic formula: Back to nature!Back to the original state of our forefathers, the primitive  state  founded  in  accordance  with  human  nature, and  therefore stable; back to the tribal patriarchy of the time before the Fall, to the natural class rule  of  the wise few over the ignorant  many."

 "In  spite of such arguments I believe that Plato’s  political  programme, far  from  being  morally superior to totalitarianism, is fundamentally identical with it."

 "...if I am right in this interpretation, then we should have to say that Plato’s demand for   justice   leaves   his   political   programme at the level of totalitarianism; and we should have to conclude that we must guard against the danger of being impressed by mere words."

Führer Wir Danken Dir

The Führer’s Birthday (1942)
 Kurt Eggers

 "Obedient historians have often enough dignified emperors and kings, nobles and the powerful, with the flattering term “the Great,” without however ensuring that these fine men actually went down that way in the book of world history.

In reality, the great men of history are rare. There are even whole centuries that lack a towering historic figure.

The historically great are those few personalities who stamp a whole epoch with their will, which lives on into the future and entirely changes the political order.

Great men are also rare because the unity of idea and will, of desire and action is so seldom achieved.

As we celebrate today the birthday of our Führer and bow before the greatness of this man, we have both the right and duty as people who think politically — beyond all cheap outward enthusiasm — to ask what is behind this greatness.

Deceived by liberal superficiality during the bourgeois era, people said that character was molded by the environment. The Führer refutes this persuasively: He worked hard to build his will and knowledge such that he became one of the deepest experts not only on the German nature, but on the deep political connections of world politics. The Führer’s ruthless self discipline gave him the strength of his convictions and the unshakable confidence of a genius who reaches his goals through the full force of his will.

The Führer has never been given anything, nor has he allowed himself to be given anything. All that he has, both intellectually and spiritually, he won himself! The blows of fate that he suffered from his youngest days onward made him harder and more passionate. He thus developed a character not dependent on a more or less hostile environment, but rather one able to stand against any opposition.

The World War was the last test of his character: with pride the Führer has always said that he learned as a simple soldier to bear the full weight of war! The war did not break him, but rather enabled him to understand more clearly and plainly the reality of life.

As chaos fell over Germany after 1918, the wisdom of those philosophers and poets who proclaimed that only character can survive defeat and collapse was proven.

In the familiar words of the Greek writer of tragedy, there is much that is powerful, but nothing that is more powerful than man. His words find amazing proof in the Führer, a single man with one goal who applied his passionate will in a time that lacked will. A single man proclaimed freedom during the years of slavery!

 Coming ages will see the Führer as an almost mythic figure who did not only stand against the flow of a worthless era, but rather against a whole avalanche of apparently irresistible fate. He stood up as Germany was in danger of vanishing into the mists of history, changing history’s very direction.

We remember the catastrophic years that began in 1919. We remember the disgrace of Versailles, Germany’s enslavement, terrible arbitrary international forces.

While “well-meaning” bourgeois circles at best were dreaming that one day freedom would once more shine on Germany, the Führer pondered and labored to realize his idea of freedom, which had as its presupposition the mobilization of the German soul. Year in, year out, first unnoticed, then piled high with suspicion, envy, and ridicule, the Führer wandered through Germany and woke the best of the nation, leading them to self-awareness, forcing them under his prophetic will. The National Socialist movement developed as a gathering of those Germans who no longer wanted something for themselves, but rather thought only of Germany and of the eternal life of the nation.

When the seizure of power came in 1933, bourgeois politicians probably thought that the Führer has achieved the goal of his struggle. Those who saw, or at least sensed more deeply, realized that it was only the starting point for the second and most difficult phase of the Führer’s great struggle."

A Grey Day At The Mountain Temple

In a different day, but continuing where we left off in the previous post about Mount Ypaton. At the same area but in a different mountain. This time we found out some info about the ruins of an Ancient temple with an oracle dedicated to God Apollo. Located in the middle of a mountain near to a village named Akraifnio. The nature of the place is truly awe-inspiring. From the very first steps into the area you`ll see mountains, lakes and rivers. Add to that the grey clouds of a sping raining day and here we have something that strongly reminds something from a painting of the Romantic era. 
Hopefully Hjarulv`s photos that following will give you an insight from the magic of this place. Afterwards i found out that there more remains from the ancient times there. So in the proper time of the year, a return will surely happen.

DIE WELT says that Enoch Powel was right! (seriously. No joking here!)

 (Its just a coincidence. The central organ of the zionist movement had the same name)

Not the above-mentioned "Die Welt" (this has no reason to exist anymore as pretty much most of the press nowadays serve as organs for zionist intrests), the other one. I think everybody in the world knows the mainstream German newspaper DIE WELT. What is really intresting is an article that appeared in one of if its columns about 10 days ago. 
You can see it here:

More info in english here:

Now, how does this article fits in the "liberal cosmopolitan" (click to see the wikipedia entry) position of the newspaper?

Better late than never i would say. But you can imagine how bad the things are or going to be in future that even newspapers like DIE WELT admit that. Or probably its because of the heat from the fire approaching their own doors. However, i think sometime in future these people they will have to apologize because anyone in the past who dared to voice his opinion or write and publish articles with similar views has been targeted, arrested and even jailed. 

Coming to Enoch Powell. Here is a post i did on this blog seven years ago:

Ofcourse he was right! Its simple logic that hopefully more and more will see in future.

The Acropolis

By Hans Christian Andersen
Taken from "A Poet`s Bazaar" (1840)

"The storm roared between the columns; dark birds of pray flew over the valley of Hymettus. Directly under the rock lay Athens extended, looking almost a city indeed, with its white houses and red roofs. Snow had fallen on the mountains of Pentelicon and Parnassus. What a view around; yes it was most beautiful towards the sea, which shone so vast and extended, so deeply blue, as it bore the white sails along. The air was so transparent, that i thought i could see over the whole Peloponneses. I saw distand mountain tops around Sparta ; and toward the hill where Corinth stands, the road appeared very short, yet it is svereal days journey by land. I saw the white walls of fortification at Acro-Corinth with the naked eye,-even the angles they made, and the strong shadows they cast

During my stay in Athens, i visited daily the Acropolis, whether it were sunshine or rain! I celebrated my birthday by a visit here ; here i read my letters from home. The Acropolis was the last place I visited at Athens when i was about to leave ; my thoughts dwell longest on the Acropolis when they visit Greece. It was as if nature and art reposed on my breast in this place ; here i felt no want, except that all my dear friends could not participate with me in this spectacle.

A sunset seen from this place, is one of the most sublime sights i know. I have seen such a one. I sat on the steps of the Parthenon ; everything was void and dead towards Hymettus ; black birds flew over the valley where a single white columns stands. An ass brayed down there, and it sounded like the screams of a jackal ; the sun sank behind the Bay of Salamis, and the mountains shone with the most powerful colors. Aegina was as blue as the freshest violets. The same colors, the same forms of the mountains, were seen by Plato, Socrates, and the great men of that world from the same spot as that from which i myself saw them. It was the same earth they had trodden. I felt, for a moment, that I was living in those times. The sun went down, and the glittering stars streamed forth over the dilapidated temples. I felt that God`s work is eternal, man`s perishable ; but i drank life`s poetry from both, which (if God allows it to flourish and expand) shall refresh the hearts of man."
