CHAPTER 3: The Spinning of the Web
"Just as the spider weaves his silky web, to lure flies into the larder of his banqueting hall in order that he may, at his leisure, pick the flesh off their bones, so, deceitful Ideals are cunningly woven by dexterous political spiders, to capture and exploit swarms of human flies."
"What are the grandiose paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence, but the weft and woof of a dazing spider-web? And what are the American People but the flies that have been cleverly entangled in its gossamer meshes?"
"How absurd of men to hurrah over their 'glorious political liberty' who have not even been able to retain possession of the substantial products of their own laboriousness. After a century of 'constitutional progress,' ten per cent of the population are absolute owners of ninety-two percent of all the property."
"To all contemporary demagogues, the high-sounding phraseology of the 'Declaration is as honey from paradise.' Everywhere its seductive abstractions are the Avatars of anarchism, communism, republicanism, and scores of other zymotic convulsionisms."
"America! America! Never shall you realize the true meaning of thorough-going Independence and Self-Proprietorship until an American Cromwell or an American Caesar has signed the death-warrant of an American King. The Executive who sells his people into bondage is a Public Enemy, whether he be an elective Monarch or a hereditary King. Such a Scoundrel and Traitor has no rights that property holding Freeman are bound to respect: no not one. By accepting the gold of Public Plunderers he makes himself an Ishmaelite. His hand is against every man's hearth and every man's property. Therefore, every man's hand should be uplifted against him."
"What is viler than a government of slaves and usurious Jews? What is grander than a government of the Noblest and the Best — who have proved their Fitness on the plains of Death?"
"Cromwell and his Ironsides — Caesar and his Legions shall be born again; and the thunderous tread of Sulla's fierce destroyers shall roll and rumble amid the fire and glare and smoke of crumbling constitutionalisms: "as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be" — warfare without end."
"Strive therefore against them that strive against you, and war against them that war against thine. Lay hold of shield and buckler or their equivalents, stand up! Be a Terrible one in thine own defence. Raise up also the Clenched Hand and stop the way of them that would persecute you. Say unto thine own heart and soul "I; even I, am mine own redeemer.""
Ragnar describes how the false idea of equality was implanted into the Aryan mind, and what effect it has. He describes the American People as willing subjects to Jews and the parasitical ruling class. The average People believe they are free, thanks to "liberty & equality" ideas found in documents such as the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Ragnar believes the only solution is for Free and Strong Men to rise up to over throw the old order, and put in it's place a Warrior Aristocracy. The American people will have to accept the reality of inequality. Ragnar says that Men of all time periods have their own struggles they must ultimately deal with, and you must be able to "redeem" yourself because the time to act is in this lifetime.
The rejection of democracy & equality, embracing a life of struggle, meritocracy, and rule of the strong are all obvious similarities to National Socialism.
If Hitler were to object to anything Ragnar writes in this chapter, it would probably be the description of a large section of the common folk. The National Socialists organized the "Winterhilfswerk" to make sure none of the struggling People would starve or freeze. Where charity fits into the "Might is Right" worldview is dependent on the Individuals will, National Socialism used the State to reach the common folk with their worldview and encourage charity.
