myths and madness

It was born as a minor issue in comparative linguistics; it grew into a full-fledged racial theory of history, and ended by almost devouring European civilization. The Aryan myth…..

The most famous proponent of the Aryan myth was Count Arthur de Gobineau, a Frenchman of great charm and considerable but erratic learning. Though he came, in fact, from a prosperous bourgeois family of Bordeaux, he convinced himself and his contemporaries that his lineage was truly aristocratic. Thus identifying himself with the harassed and impoverished French nobility, he looked with distaste upon the “progress” of nineteenth-century civilization.

The revolutions of 1848, which particularly horrified him, reinforced his sense of alienation from the modern world. To challenge the rising currents of democracy and socialism, he adopted a racial interpretation of history that had a long pedigree in France. This was the theory that the Gauls and Romans defeated by the so-called barbarian invaders were the ancestors of the French lower classes and that the aristocracy was descended from the conquering Franks, whom commentators by Gobineau’s time considered to be part of the Aryan stock. His hymn of praise to these Aryans was, therefore, also a chorus of protest against the democratization of French politics.

Lanzinger. The Flag Bearer. "I have often used this particular painting as an excellent example of a work of art that is "good" in the sense of being quite effective at conveying its idea (generally, that Hitler was a great man, or that his political program was noble, his party principled and trustworthy) and also false in fact, and evil in its effect (since of course Hitler and the Nazi Party were none of these). It is interesting to note that this painting was stabbed in the face with a knife several times by vandals." Read More:

Gobineau insisted that mankind was divided basically into three races- black, yellow and white arranged in descending order. He further argued that withing the white race itself, the Aryan branch, originating in central Asia, was the finest of all. The rise and fall of civilizations, together with other political and social phenomena, were controlled ultimately by the workings of blood mixture between these races. Gobineau was unusual in suggesting that civilizations could be created only when the Aryans were intermixed on a limited scale, with their colored inferiors. However, his description of the Aryans is typical of the myth: he said they were tall, blond, powerful, and alert, that they loved freedom but placed honor above all.

Albert Janesh. Water Sports. 1936. "This painting is an excellent example of the common theme of athletic prowess in Nazi artworks. It is particularly effective in conveying a sense of motion because of the lines of rowers acting like frames of movie film as the eye passes over them. Certainly the theme and technique of this painting are excellent, and there's certainly nothing especially overtly Nazi-oriented about the portrayal (no swastikas and so on), but given the era in which it was created, the themes of health, athletic prowess, collective action, and competition are unmistakably intended to promulgate this view of German society and what kind of world the Nazis wanted to be thought of as creating. It is unfortunate that today so many artists and others have taken home the wrong lesson from such works. Of course the end toward which they aggitated was evil, but must we reject the idea of meaningful art promoting true virtues (such as health, success, and strength in this case) on the grounds that some artists in some eras have used their power to portray good ideals in association with evil political movements?

The similarities between the racist Gobineau and the communist Marx, between a conception of history dominated by Aryan destiny and one enslaved to the destiny of the proletariat, are evident. So, too are their shared intolerance and limitation of vision. But, though some of Marx’s myths have proved therapeutically useful in provoking helpful revisions of social attitudes, no such qualification applies to the disastrous results of Gobineau’s Aryanism. Ironically, Gobineau was drawn to the myth by considerations of class conflict. He identified the Aryans not only with the ancient French aristocracy but also with much of the European nobility, a caste whose overthrow by Slav and Latin was virtually complete.

Arno Breker Studio. Tomislav Sunic:If one accepts the conventional wisdom, widely accepted in all corners of he world, that National Socialism was a form of totalitarianism, one must then also raise the question as to whether there were any authentic cultural successes achieved during the Third Reich at all. Certain parallels can and should be drawn between artistic efforts in the USSR and National Socialist Germany, in view of the fact that culture in both systems was dominated by a specific ideology. Does this therefore mean, that there were no valuable works of art created in the USSR, or for that matter in National Socialist Germany? What both National Socialism and Communism had in common was the rejection of “art for art’s sake,” (l’art pour l’art) and the repudiation of middle-class aestheticism. Instead, both political systems favored a committed and normative approach to art, which was supposed to be a tool for the creation of the “new man.” On the other hand, from the thematic, aesthetic and stylistic point of view, the differences between art in Communism and art in National Socialism were immense.

Aryanism and communism were thus enlisted in the same conflict of interest, but on opposite sides. Since Gobineau believed that the Aryan race was exhausted after centuries of culture-creation and that nothing but degradation and decline lay ahead, he preached stoicism  rather than racial messianism. But others, ignoring his comparatively harmless conclusions, were to steal his methods and use them to wreak havoc. Whatever changes of mind may have arisen, the damage had already been done through the declarations of philologist Max Muller and others. Myths tend to have a life of their own and like Frankenstein’s monster, they often end up terrorizing and enslaving their creators. The ideal of the ancestral Aryan hero was firmly established.

Danny Miller:Is it possible to appreciate the art of your oppressors even if its intent is to annihilate you? Does such an attraction reveal some deep-seated neuroses or perhaps a tendency towards self-hatred? Riefenstahlposters I’ve always been a huge fan of German cinema, including many of the propaganda films made during the heyday of the Third Reich. The most famous of these are Leni Riefenstahl’s “Olympia” and “Triumph of the Will.” Say what you like about Riefenstahl’s “innocence” or “guilt,” there’s no question that she was a remarkable filmmaker whose work pushed the boundaries of cinematic artistry. Whatever her personal motives (she claims she was something of a dupe and not a supporter of Hitler’s vision for the German people), Riefenstahl’s work underscorses how effective such propaganda tools are. After watching either of these films, I can see how politically ambivalent people might be moved to declare their allegiance to

The myth continued to feast upon what scientific ideas it could. Having lost the general support of philologists, it relied upon some of the more convenient applications of Darwinism and, especially, upon the pseudo science of anthroposociology, of which the most infamous manifestation was crainiometry, or skull measurement. Its adherent were soon quarreling about whether the long heads or the broad heads were the real representatives of the Aryan heritage.

Alys Eve Weinbaum: Indeed, ever since the announcement of the completion of the map of the human genome in June 2000, the case against race more often than not is presented in genetic terms and as definitively closed. As a headline in the New York Times rhetorically queried as early as August 2000, “Do Races Differ? Not Really Genes Show.” By 2003, Scientific American saw fit to announce on its cover that “Science Has the Answer” to the age-old conundrum of racial difference: race has no genetic basis.

Arno Breker. "In referring to the resurgence of the idea of race in our supposedly post-racial moment, I refer secondly to the use of race in the development of drugs advertised by their makers to act selectively on specific racial groups. The most often discussed and controversial of these is commercially known as BiDil, a combination of two existing drugs, isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine, which was approved in 2005 by the FDA for prescription to “blacks” who suffer from heart failure. FDA approval was based on a series of clinical trials that purport to have revealed BiDil’s exclusive effectiveness among African Americans.---Weinbaum. Read More: image:

What concerns me in this article is that even as the hegemony of a colorblind racial project currently being expressed as a post-racial euphoria holds sway, the dominant understanding of race, newly energized by genomics, exists side by side with a culture that continues to renew its commitment to the idea of race through its practice of biotechnology. Most of the biotechnological, medical, and consumer practices currently available, routinely prescribed, and widely purchased depend on geneticized ideas of race and, paradoxically, on the same genomic science that has been invoked to prove the non-existence of genetically distinct races. Here, I refer to a range of practices, among them recreational genealogy, race-based medicine, and the new fertility medicine comprised of an arsenal of assisted reproductive technologies, or so-called ARTs.

In one clear-cut instance, race is resurrected in and through the expanding market in recreational genealogy that frequently claims to be able to identify the consumer’s “racial origins.” Such genealogical tests popularize and commercialize the work of population geneticists who have used DNA analysis of many of the world’s peoples to argue that individuals can be assigned to their continent of origin on the basis of their “DNA fingerprint” by adding to this research the claim that such geographic regions correspond to self-identified categories.5 Consumers mail off a swab of inner cheek cells and two to four hundred dollars and receive an analysis of their DNA that identifies their origins in terms of race and ethnicity, informing them whether they are African, East Asian, Jewish, Native American, or, perhaps, a bit of each.

    You got it right there about Muller & Gobineau.

    If you are interested, Dr. Aich in his book ‘Lies with long legs’ have brought out these things brilliantly.
    You can read the complete book for free here-

    So accordingly to the zionist controlled mainstream media race differences do not exist?
    Not accordingly to the modern science.

    How about exposing the myth of multiculturalism, created by the cultural marxists?
