    Escape from Freedom por Erich Fromm (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: Granted, while married to his first wife, Fromm had an affair with fellow psychologist Karen Horney. But in his book:

      I have tried to show in Hitler’s writings the two trends that we have already described as fundamental for the authoritarian character: the craving for power over men and the longing for submission to an overwhelmingly strong outside power. Hitler’s ideas are more or less identical with the ideology of the Nazi party. The ideas expressed in his book are those which he expressed in the countless speeches by which he won mass following for his party. This ideology results from his personality which, with its inferiority feeling, hatred against life, asceticism, and envy of those who enjoy life, is the soil of sadomasochistic strivings; it was addressed to people who, on account of their similar character structure, felt attracted and excited by these teachings and became ardent followers of the man who expressed what they felt. But it was not only the Nazi ideology that satisfied the lower middle class; the political practice realized what the ideology promised. A hierarchy was created in which everyone has somebody above him to submit to and somebody beneath him to feel power over; the man at the top, the leader, has Fate, History, Nature above him as the power in which to submerge himself. Thus the Nazi ideology and practice satisfies the desires springing from the character structure of one part of the population and gives direction and orientation to those who, though not enjoying domination and submission, were resigned and had given up faith in life, in their own decisions, in everything.

    Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again por Donald J. Trump (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: Quite possibly the struggle part II. If you can figure out who said what, you just might be smarter than a 5th Grader.

    I use the media the way the media uses me—to attract attention. Once I have that attention, it’s up to me to use it to my advantage.

    The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses.

    Our country, our people, and our laws have to be our top priority.

    Once again the songs of the fatherland roared to the heavens along the endless marching columns, and for the last time the Lord’s grace smiled on His ungrateful children.

    I’ve seen these so-called journalists flat-out lie. I say that because incompetence doesn’t begin to explain the inaccurate stories they have written.

    All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to.

    Citizenship is not a gift we can afford to keep giving away.

    The struggle between the various species does not arise from a feeling of mutual antipathy but rather from hunger and love. In both cases Nature looks on calmly and is even pleased with what happens. The struggle for the daily livelihood leaves behind in the ruck everything that is weak or diseased or wavering; while the fight of the male to possess the female gives to the strongest the right, or at least, the possibility to propagate its kind. And this struggle is a means of furthering the health and powers of resistance in the species. Thus it is one of the causes underlying the process of development towards a higher quality of being.

    We can’t be afraid to use our military, but sending our sons and daughters should be the very last resort. I’ve seen what wars do to our kids. I’ve seen their broken bodies, know all about the horrors that live in their heads, and the enormous effects of trauma. We cannot commit American troops to battle without a real and tangible objective.

    The application of force alone, without moral support based on a spiritual concept, can never bring about the destruction of an idea or arrest the propagation of it, unless one is ready and able ruthlessly to exterminate the last upholders of that idea even to a man, and also wipe out any tradition which it may tend to leave behind.

    When Kuwait was attacked by Saddam Hussein, all the wealthy Kuwaitis ran to Paris. They didn’t just rent suites—they took up whole buildings, entire hotels. They lived like kings while their country was occupied. Who did they turn to for help? Who else? Uncle Sucker. That’s us.

    The gigantic North American State, with the enormous resources of its virgin soil, is much more invulnerable than the encircled German Reich. Should a day come when the die which will finally decide the destinies of the nations will have to be cast in that country, England would be doomed if she stood alone.

    I manage to blast through the ridiculous liberal bias of the media and speak right to the hearts of the people—or at least I try.

    No matter what amount of talent is employed in the organisation of propaganda, it will have no result if due account is not taken of these fundamental principles. Propaganda must be limited to a few simple themes and these must be represented again and again. Here, as in innumerable other cases, perseverance is the first and most important condition of success.

    True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.

"Jews here and Jews there and Jews everywhere." (pg. 410)

As a graduate of modern history and a World War Two buff, I've always felt I should read Mein Kampf – I've certainly read about its results. And as someone with an odd sense of humour, I've always sort of liked the idea of reading Mein Kampf ironically, and then writing a no doubt hilarious straight-faced review about how the source material doesn't match up to all the films based on it (Saving Private Ryan, etc.), let alone the live re-enactment.

The book's actually quite hard to get hold of nowadays for a decent price, considering it's in the public domain (I guess no one wants the copyright, and besides, they keep the price on academic editions artificially high to deter neo-Nazi looky-loos). Not that I wanted Mein Kampf for a coffee-table book, of course, but nor did I want to inadvertently bung money towards some far-right self-publisher on Amazon and end up on a government watchlist. But I still wanted a serviceable copy. I can't imagine anything worse than buying a used, well-thumbed edition of Mein Kampf – it'd be like buying second-hand underpants – so the edition I eventually chose was a Jaico edition from India; relatively cheap but brand new (the swastika has less stigma attached to it over there). This edition, however, proved to be chock full of typos, printing errors and misalignments. But then again, if there's one book you're probably allowed to treat shabbily, it's this one.

It's probably not a surprise to learn that a book by Adolf Hitler is awful; what's surprising is that it's even more awful than you imagine. Of course, there's all the stuff about the Jews and race and the cleansing power of war, which is more than a tad strong, but that's to be expected: it is Mein Kampf, after all. But you'd expect the book to have a certain raciness, a perverse entertainment factor at being so woefully inappropriate.

Unfortunately, this isn't the case: even read ironically, this is a terrible experience. It's absolute dreck: tedious, tautological rambling for six hundred (!) pages, lacking any lyrical or structural writing ability whatsoever. It has a handful of ideas which it then unpacks, repacks and unpacks and repacks and unpacks over and over again with complete ideological mercilessness. In reading this ironically, my commitment to the bit rather backfired, for the only book less appealing than Mein Kampf is Mein Kampf unabridged.

Another surprise is that, for the most part, the book is rather banal: it is My Struggle, a political memoir by an upstart radical politician talking with super-sincerity about his journey and his political 'awakening'. With its obsession with racial hierarchies and reinventing the political wheel, all in the name of the 'ordinary, hard-working folks', the book confirms what I have long suspected about political discourse, even (perhaps especially) in our current time: the extremists dominate the discussion because they have far more stamina for this tedious business than reasonable people do. Any sane person will find reading this book an arse-ache; but, by Christ, imagine writing it.

One unironical impression I got from the book saw me put my history graduate cap on: the extent to which Mein Kampf was a blueprint for all that came later. Some eminent historians, such as Ian Kershaw, have cited passages about 'extermination' of Jews as evidence the Holocaust was always intended. Personally, I didn't get this from the book: certainly, the Jews are repeatedly identified by Hitler as the ultimate and implacable enemy, but there's no grand plan offered here. As it stands, I'm of the mind that what eventually became the Holocaust was an escalation, exacerbated by the war. What is beyond doubt is that war and persecution was certainly intended: Hitler makes no bones about seeking 'lebensraum' in the East and in reversing the Versailles treaty: in his mind, the latter speaks to a wider trend of German disgrace and impurity, which can only be purged by a great blood-letting. When he writes of feeling "calm and cool" at the recognition there will have to be a war "by the whetted sword" (pg. 561), or that the "coming struggle" against Russia will be under conditions that "assume the character of sheer slaughter" (pg. 589), you can't help but feel disconcerted, knowing as we do what was to be initiated by this man.

That said, the book was published seven years before Hitler was elected and thirteen years before war broke out, so that's a long time for ideas and strategies to change. Hitler himself even said, to one of his cronies year later, that he would never have written Mein Kampf if he had known he was going to become chancellor of Germany. You can also see why, despite the fanaticism evident in the book, statesmen in the 1930s thought Hitler might be an ally, or at least harmless or controllable. He is resolutely anti-Marxist in these pages, as well as indulging in some of your meat-and-drink demagoguery and rah-rah trade unionism; what becomes clear is that he is very much a national socialist, even though not a Marxist, and many of his converts in the early years came from the left (those George Orwell later identified as communists "who will be fascists five years hence"). If you try to read the book from the perspective of 1926, rather than with the knowledge of what happened between 1939 and 1945, it's much harder to pin him down as such an apocalyptic threat – certainly by the mores of the time, with anti-Semitism a common prejudice, Marxism resurgent, and Germany paupered. From a historical perspective, such a dangerous knot of complacency and power is fascinating to try to assess.

And, taking my history-grad cap off again, it's much harder to pin him down when the book is so bloody tedious. Not an ounce of real personality comes through in six hundred pages. It says a lot that Hitler was later embarrassed by its publication; the man had one bollock, shit facial hair and chronic flatulence, to say nothing of being the berk who both started World War Two and lost it, so for Mein Kampf to be the one thing that left him rather sheepish only illustrates its abject awfulness. He should have at least included a few funny anecdotes. ( )

Este libro es varias cosas, todas ellas entre-mezcladas sin orden y no siempre habilmente. Doy puntuaciones separadas a cada parte: (de 1 a 5)
- Teorias sobre raza, guerra y odio 1/5
- Autobiografia 1/5
- Teoria politica 3/5
- Ensayo sobre la sociedad y el poder de la epoca 3/5
- Documento historico sobre el nacimiento del partido y pensamiento nazi 5/5

Explicando cada punto anterior orden:
Raza. Hitler no se corta la lengua aqui, llama todo tipo de terminos peyorativos a judios, eslavos y otras etnologias o religiones o clases sociales o cualquier cosa que el considere anti-aleman. Estas opiniones estan basadas en, al menos segun este libro, una lectura retorcida de la historia y de la ley de evolucion de Darwin.
Basura pseudocientifica de la mala.

Autobiografia. Hitler se ensalza a si mismo pero de formas muy discretas. Por ejemplo, diciendo que es de origines humildes, cuando la verdad es que su familia era mas bien acomodada o diciendo que era el numero 7 del partido cuando realmente era el 550. Mal escrito y mentiroso. Las partes autobiograficas en general, fatal.

Teoria politica. Aqui es cuando empieza a haber algo leible. En trozos aqui y alla se puede encontrar una teoria politica. A mi no me parecen ideas originales, ya que por lo que puedo entender es fascismo simplemente pero hila el hilo correctamente, le doy un aprobado.

Ensayo sobre sociedad y poder. Relacionado con lo anterior, nunca de forma muy directa, pero si que da una buena idea del poder de la epoca y como se sentia las revoluciones y los nuevos idearios. Creo que es bastante interesante conocer que fuerzas estaban en el tablero para poder comprender como un partido como el suyo pudo llegar al poder (y como se podria repetir la jugada).

Y esto me lleva al ultimo punto, el documento historico. Hay miles de libros escritos sobre la segunda guerra mundial y muchos otros para intentar hacernos comprender como pudo pasar. En que narices estabamos pensando? En que estaban pensando?
Pero nada mejor que leerlo de la pluma de su principal arquitecto. Y no se corta en dar toda la informacion necesaria para comprender el fenomeno, en esto me parece completamente sincero.
No se cual era la audiencia de este libro, desde luego no es propaganda ya que habla de la gente como escoria sin cerebro por tanto tiene que ser un circulo mas reducido, un libro del mayor nazi para explicar la ideologia a su circulo mas escogido. Desde luego es un gran documento, ayuda a poner a los nazis en contexto y poder comprender un poco mejor esta parte negra de nuestra historia. ( )

“Das furchtbarste Beispiel dieser Art bildet Rußland, wo er an dreißig Millionen Menschen in wahrhaft fanatischer Wildheit teilweise unter unmenschlichen Qualen tötete oder verhungern ließ, um einem Haufen jüdischer Literaten und Börsenbanditen die Herrschaft aber ein großes Volk zu sichern. Das Ende aber ist nicht nur das Ende der Freiheit der vom Juden unterdrückten Völker, sondern auch das Ende dieses Völkerparasiten selber. Nach dem Tode des Opfers stirbt auch früher oder später der Vampir.”

In “Mein Kampf” by Adolph Hitler

What is frightening to me about “Mein Kampf” is that it is a vivid account of what is in the souls of most people, in most cases barely repressed. The fact that history and its mistakes are repeated in spite of Santayana's admonition, may be the consequence of our immature biological evolution, which has remained the same for 2 million years while our cultural evolution marches on. The reptilian brain dominates human endeavors, and power is grabbed with ease by those who have greater or more efficient reptilian attributes. Hitler's cynicism about the acquisition of power and the manipulation of masses in MK is not very different from what we see in some of today's leaders. Both are recipes for dominance, the latter better written and more successful than the former… for now.

I guess the Holocaust wounds are still too open for people to accept its premises, but there are quite a number of surrogate victims that will do for the time being, like homosexuals, blacks, browns, undocumented immigrants, etc. In the US we have not yet (as far as I know) started building the new ovens, but I have no doubt that sooner or later some entrepreneurially savvy people will come around who will disguise them and sell the idea to the people so that they feel better, happier and more secure after the ovens have done their job. The US public has sold away its freedoms for a little bit of so-called 'security', which is the new illusion of the 21st century, and like all other illusions, based on the response of the reptilian brain to a perceived attack, especially if one attack has already happened. In MK it was the humiliation of Germany...here is the humiliation of the corporate power by a few towel heads with box cutters that produces the reaction. In both cases the reaction becomes the defeat of those who react, as happened to Hitler and as it is happening to the USA.

In our case all of us will be guilty, those in power for what they did, those governed for voting them into office, those who don't vote for not voting.

I watched a speech by Hitler on the Yesterday channel in colour, it was fascinating to watch this powerful orator mesmerise his audience and you understand after seeing him why he had such an impact; he is speaking garbage, simplistic nonsense and it's that bit I fail to understand how people were hoodwinked. He would have been laughed at in Portugal as an idiotic mad man. Whatever you may think of the author, "Mein Kampf" is an important historical document and, as someone once said, if we don't learn the lessons of history we are doomed to repeat them.

Out of curiosity I remember back then looking up it on Amazon to find that the cheapest print version was over 21.49 USD, and on BookFinder.com was almost as much. By comparison, you can buy a used copy of “The Communist Manifesto” from Amazon for 1p. Does this indicate we have more to fear from the extreme right than from the extreme left? I believe we need to keep a close eye on all political extremists. Why is everybody so afraid of this book? If it is so awful then let it be read and let people make up their own minds. It’s difficult to get a copy which is not replete with footnotes 'explaining' that Hitler's 'insanity' is clear from this or that statement. So there's not much danger that the SS will rise from the ashes as a result!

The worst thing about “Mein Kampf” is that it is hideously, tediously and appallingly boring, badly written, incoherent and frigging LONG. It does make a useful doorstop, mind you. If you want to hear a better, more pithy and well-reasoned argument, just take a trip in any Lisbon taxi and no doubt the cabbie will tell you in short order just who should be strung up.

My old man said to me once: "You know, you don't really have to try shit to know it tastes like shit". Of course, I read it. And you know what... My old man was right. Maybe I should have read instead the updated version of “Mein Kampf”, the one he finished a few months before he died in Argentina in 1962. ( )

On November 9, 1923, at 12:30 in the afternoon, in front of the Feldherrnhalle as well as in the courtyard of the former War Ministry, the following men steadfast in their belief in the resurrection of their people, were killed:

[Names, occupations and birth dates of sixteen (16) men are listed]

So-called national authorities denied these dead heroes a common grave.

Therefore I dedicate to them, for common memory, the first volume of this work, as the blood witnesses of which they may continue to serve as a brilliant example for the followers of our movement.
