My Product Description of Mein Kampf
Much of the history books have recorded Adolf Hitler as the most evil man to ever live. A raving madman who murdered six million Jews and tried to take over the world by force, for no reason whatsoever. To be compared to Hitler, or to be called a Nazi, is to be condemned as the epitome of evil.
A seemingly infinite amount of energy and resources are poured into efforts to prevent such horrors from ever resurfacing. A never ending campaign against “racism” and “hate speech” has caused America and Europe to abandon what were once proud traditions of intellectual rigor, academic freedom, and freedom of speech.
Yet, in the midst of all this political and legal action, so few have bothered to pick up the man’s book and see for themselves what motives drove him to do what he did. How can one hope to prevent another Hitler from coming to power, without knowing what Hitler said?
The prevailing narrative today is that anyone who disagrees with a leftist is a Nazi. Accepting leftist narratives necessarily implies that everyone who voted for Trump is a fascist, which is about half the country. Could the leftists have been right all along? Is Nazism merely the struggle for national greatness?
Read this book, and find out for yourself.
Mein Kampf was (perhaps obviously) originally written in German, and there have been several attempts to translate it to English which have all caused varying degrees of controversy. Hitler had unique verbal talents, and did not write the book by hand, but rather dictated it to others who put the words to page while he was incarcerated. He had a way with words that can be difficult to fully capture when translating from one language to another, which has caused much of the controversy regarding the translations of the book.
The Stalag Edition is said to be the only complete, unabridged, and officially authorised English translation ever issued by the Nazi party. I read this version in the custody of the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail in the wake of the 2017 Unite the Right rally. I can testify from the experience that it is full of grammatical errors and can at times be difficult to follow along with.
The James Murphy translation makes a nearly identical claim, but is said by readers to be missing about 20% of the book and riddled with errors. Suspicions abound that these errors and omissions are intentional, as Murphy died before completing the book and possible subversives finished the project for him.
Among reviews for remaining translations, the Ford and Manheim translations battle for supremacy. I listened to much the audiobook version of the Ford translation, and found the experience enjoyable. But Ford was not a native German speaker, and though it contains helpful footnotes for the reader to understand certain contexts, criticisms over translation abound.
The copy for sale here is the Manheim translation. I cannot claim to have read it yet, but I like what I hear about it. Despite Manheim’s open hostility to Hitler, and anti-Nazi footnotes, it is said to be the easiest to read, and most accurately translated by many reviewers. This is perhaps thanks to the fact that Manheim was a native German speaker.
My Product Description of Hitler’s Revolution
The first book I read when I was in the custody of the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail was sent to me by one of you. Hitler’s Revolution by Richard Tedor, set the tone for the rest of my stay.
If you’ve only recently become a listener or reader, you probably think I’m some kind of lifelong Hitlerite devotee, but this could not be further from the truth. I’ve often said (and occasionally still do say) that I would convert to Islam before I unironically call myself a socialist, and not because I’m anxious to pray five times a day. Even as I distanced myself from anarcho-capitalism and got wise to the Jewish question, I still viewed socialism as a dirty word with no place on the Right.
I came to realize that while National Socialism is still socialism in the sense that government interferes in the economy, it is not the type of degenerate crippling welfarism and overregulation the Left is using to destroy America. National Socialism seeks not to make the white man and the negro economic equals. It does not hate success, or worship failure. It does not pretend that economic incentives can be abolished by government decree.
Rather, it recognizes the reality and science of human biology, and applies this wisdom to social, economic, and foreign policy. It recognizes the strengths and weaknesses of monarchy and democracy, and attempts to reconcile them into an ideal authoritarianism with limited public participation. It recognizes the value of both capital and labor, and organizes policy to keep the two in harmony. Perhaps most importantly, it sees communism as the lethal threat which it is, instead of a mere difference of opinion, and organizes all of the powers of the State towards its elimination.
This book is no hateful tirade of racial propaganda, in fact, race is hardly discussed, and religion even less so. Hitler’s Revolution instead cuts through the hysterical anti-Hitler propaganda we have all been fed, and concentrates on what the policies, and impacts were of the NSDAP leading up to and during their rule of Germany, and what World War II looked like from the German perspective.
Tedor’s writing style makes this book an excellent page turner, while simultaneously informing the reader better than any dry historical text. For me, it was an emotional experience as well, as revelation after revelation made me realize how badly I had been deceived, and I felt the anguish of the German soldier who fought valiantly to victory against incomprehensible odds, only to die at the hand of traitors within his own country’s military.
Defying liberal democracy, Adolf Hitler transformed Germany into an authoritarian state advocating sovereignty of nations, advancement of labor, preservation of the white race, and commerce based on exchange of wares to replace the international gold standard. Becoming chancellor in 1933, he tackled his country s bankruptcy, massive unemployment, Communist subversion and foreign domination. His social economic programs and diplomacy restored German prosperity and independence in three years, despite opposition from Western democratic leaders. Penetrating the shroud of vilification draping this controversial figure, our study draws on nearly 200 published German sources, many from the National Socialist era, plus documents from British, U.S. and Soviet archives, to describe not just what Hitler did, but why. It also reveals democracy s genuine war aims, a taboo subject for historians, in the ensuing world war against Germany. Challenging the status quo version of the period, here is the book for the student of history who senses that something is missing and seeks answers.
