Uncle Adolf’s table talk, 186

  13th June 1943, evening The French painters—The great artistic achievements of the nineteenth century were German—Architecture in Munich.   I cannot make up my mind to buy a picture by a French painter, because I am not sure of the dividing line between what I understand and what I do not understand. I have…

  15th June 1943, midday Intellectual and artistic poverty—Only decadent art is harmful—Teutonic nostalgia—The need of open spaces.   The industrialisation of a country invariably provokes an opposite reaction and gives rise to a recrudescence of a certain measure of romanticism, which not infrequently finds expression in a mania for the collection of bibelots and…

24th June 1943, evening The vibrant pulse of Berlin—Vienna the home of music— Mozart—Slav blood and German blood—Beethoven—For and against Vienna—The new capital of the Reich—A remark of Treitschke.   In Berlin, I think, people work harder than anywhere else. I know of no other city in which it would have been possible to complete…

  1st March 1944, midday A nursery for film actors—Futility of the art critics—Weber’s Freischütz and Bizet’s Carmen.   It is often said that among our film actors we have none capable of playing certain parts—that, for instance, of the hero.

16th May 1944, evening Research and instruction—State encouragement for free research—The two tasks of research worker and teacher—Kant, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche.   The theory that independent research and instruction are two fields of activity which must be indissolubly related is false. Each has an entirely different function, each calls for men of a different type, and…

Night of 29th-30th November 1944 Jesus and Saint Paul—Christianity, a Jewish manoeuvre—Christianity and Communism—National Socialism, the implacable enemy of everything Jewish.   Jesus was most certainly not a Jew. The Jews would never have handed one of their own people to the Roman courts; they would have condemned him themselves. It is quite probable that…

The stone

Recently Tom Goodrich, the author of the most relevant book in English so far this century, introduced me online to one of his friends as a “WN in Mexico City who is desperate to create a very low-budget, but effective YouTube film on the crimes against Germany.” But I am not a White Nationalist. This…

Brother Vincent

To those who are still skeptical that today’s suicidal ethos throughout the West is related to the deranged altruism in the gospels let me remind them that, between 1879 and 1880, in the miserable industrial district of Borinage in Belgium, Vincent van Gogh, apparently imitating Jesus and St Francis, lived a kind of primitive and…
