Nordicism and National Socialism, 11

Wilhelm Petersen, unknown boy

The selection and the elimination carried out in a territory belonging to a specific species means that only those who have succeeded in the conditions of that particular area reproduce in the long term. Conversely, whoever does not overcome these conditions disappears. As the researcher V. Eicktedt has done, let us take as a basis that Europoid Nordic humanity with light skin has been particularly marked by the uniform and isolated Nordic-Eurasian (Siberian) habitat of the ice age.

We can easily imagine the consequences of a natural selection and elimination in that space. Only those who had been subjected to the harshest conditions of existence could survive and perpetuate for the next millennia. Reproducing and perpetuating was granted only to those who finally revealed themselves superior to that climate and to that inhospitable aspect of the earth; to those who were, in short, stronger than Nature thanks to their inflexibility and their hardness. Only the qualities that allowed the victorious man to overcome Nature were perpetuated and consolidated by the means of hereditary transmission.
