The Measure of Greatness

by Dr. William Pierce.


“Hitler’s opponents, Churchill and Roosevelt, were party politicians, with the minds and souls of party politicians. Great, impersonal goals, just as truth, meant nothing at all to them. The only thing that counted was the approval or disapproval of their times: the outcome of the next election, a good press claque, votes. Only Stalin shared in any way Hitler’s disdain for approval; only Stalin was motivated to any degree by an impersonal idea. But the idea that Stalin served was the alien, destructive idea of Jewish Marxism. And while Hitler served the Life Force with the instincts of a seer, Stalin served Marxism with the instincts of a bureaucrat and a butcher. A comparison of careers leads us to a similar ranking of greatness of soul. Churchill and Roosevelt were born into the political establishment. They fed at the public trough for years, in one office after another, grabbing greedily at opportunities for a bigger serving of swill. But it was circumstance, not their own efforts, which thrust them onto the stage of world history.”

      Stalin must have been more than just a butcher and a bureaucrat, because to this very day there are many older Russians who fondly remember him. They put flowers on his grave and kiss portraits of him as if those pictures were holy icons.

      If one is going to give Hitler the credit for rebuilding Germany after WWI and the Depression then what about Konrad Adenauer, West Germany’s first chancellor? Under his leadership the Federal Republic of Germany was formed out of the ashes of WWII and became the wealthiest, strongest nation in Europe by the 1950s.

      I don’t like over-simplifications when it comes to history. And there’s a lot more to German history than just the Nazi period.

      As WN we need to look very critically at the period of Hitler’s rule in Germany, it was a mixed bag. We should to look back to Bismarck’s time to see the foundations of German industrial and military strength. Or perhaps go back even further and give credit to Frederick the Great. This quote comes to mind: “What Frederick faught for and Bismarck brought to fruition Hitler lost!”

    3. Tim McGreen Says:

      Well said, sir, jolly well said. But since 1945 Germany has at least recovered some of what has been lost. Of course Germany needs to regain the Rhineland, Prussia and East Prussia before it can truly be a restored nation.

      For the most part, Hitler took the upward path. He was better than the scumbags who feared a White racial state. But he may not have prepared for being overwhelmed with giant armies.

      General Hood’s curse. Hood’s Texans was an all White army. The phony military base in Texas is filled with colored hordes of every swirl.

      How can any straight healthy fit White male serve the legion’s today ?

      Non White’s in numbers any where pressure the White women for sex, and not long ago there were few White women in the legions.

      The Rostow brother’s instigated Vietnam war destroyed US just as senator Wayne Morse of Oregon stated clearly on the Communist Broadcasting System in 1964-65.

      Our people are living fear and are brain washed to the point of retardation today, thanks kikes.

    6. Tim McGreen Says:

      The real US Army/US military was basically disbanded after the Vietnam War. It’s been a politically correct, affirmative action joke ever since. So what if a spic opened fire on his fellow ZOG mercenaries at Fort Hood? They were all race-mixers in the service of King Kike anyway.

    7. Howdy Doody Says:


      Actually the Legion’s may bring many to our side, but the legions screw many of our race with drugs and prescribed drugs along with self hate and self doubt.

      Thanks kike’s.

      I agree, Tim McGreen. The White soldiers coming home from Vietnam were plenty tough. In defiance of that phony war, a lot of them became bikers, longhaired rednecks and hippies as soon as they got out of the service.

    9. Tim McGreen Says:

      They’re a good bunch of guys, fd, a damn good bunch of guys. EXCEPT for a certain Lt. John Kohn-Kerry. He played the part, the role, of a patriotic but disillusioned Vietnam vet turned long-haired peacenik, as if he was the star of an Oliver Stone movie. But it was just a POSE, a STUNT, so he could launch his career in politics. That Skull and Bones hypocrite/rat-bastid/phony-ass liberal with his gold-digging Heinz Ketchup heiress bitch of a wife. Feh!

      Miley Cyrus and her sprawling tongue reminds me of Kali, the Hindu Goddess:

      fd, what do you think about the Klan’s latest recruitment drive? In your opinion, is it worth checking out or is the Klan just too infested with FBI agents and snitches? I always supported the Knights of the Invisible Empire but up here in Abolitionist country there aren’t chapters. http://rt.com/usa/kkk-america-economy-hate-569/

      Also, is this the official state flag of Mississippi? I certainly hope so! To see the Stars and Bars on a Confederate state flag in this dark age of Cultural Marxist tyranny really makes my day. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/42/Flag_of_Mississippi.svg
