Hitler should have recorded everything
I have a distinct dislike for the journalistic class as a whole. They do not so much report news as collectively make the news, according to a peculiar pack mentality, which combines commonly-agreed designated good guys and bad guys, but also sometimes brutal and erratic shifts collective opinion, not according to the whims of an...

In an address to the nation and the wider francophone world on Thursday (April 16), the Franco-Cameroonian[1] comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala called for peace and reconciliation in these anxious times of confinement and coronavirus. Opening his video with his customary “may peace be with you and with your spirit,” Dieudonné recalled the many world leaders... Read More
The following are extracts from a speech made by Adolf Hitler to business leaders of the Industry Club in Düsseldorf on January 27, 1932.[1] This speech apparently was a “major coup” for Hitler in talking to a skeptical German business elite, which he sought to convert. These are the lengthiest comments by Hitler discussing the... Read More
The Nazi Leader’s Critique of the European Union
In his unpublished Second Book on foreign policy, Adolf Hitler offers the following critique of Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi’s Pan-European Movement, which argued for the peaceful unification of Europe. Kalergi is very much a precursor to the post-1945 effort to integrate the Old Continent, culminating in the European Union. Hitler raises essentially two objections: The... Read More
David Wnendt’s 2015 film Look Who’s Back (Er ist wieder da) is based on Timur Vermes’ 2012 novel of the same name about Adolf Hitler being mysteriously transported to modern Berlin and becoming a viral media sensation. Look Who’s Back is a fascinating and funny film, but its intended message is hard to fathom. Is... Read More

I recently wrote on the role of inspiration and perspiration in men’s careers. I also gave the example of Charles de Gaulle, who definitely hewed closer to the side of perspiration. Through the occasional bold move and the blessings of Fortune, the Frenchman’s decades of labor were rewarded with great moments of glory. Adolf Hitler... Read More
Third and Final Installment of Ron Unz’s “Understanding World War II” When we want to demonize someone the worst epithet we can think of is to call him a Nazi or compare the person to Hitler, as Hillary Clinton did when she declared Russia’s President Putin “the new Hitler.” This ingrained habit comes from the...

In late 2006 I was approached by Scott McConnell, editor of The American Conservative (TAC), who told me that his small magazine was on the verge of closing without a large financial infusion. I'd been on friendly terms with McConnell since around 1999, and greatly appreciated that he and his TAC co-founders had been providing... Read More
Adolf Hitler holding a speech, about 1925.
I can think of only one thing which unites Adolf Hitler and Noam Chomsky: a shared contempt for and critique of capitalist mass-media democracy. Concerning Hitler’s speeches, we usually think of rapturous exhortations to his party-comrades. However, the Führer could sometimes strike a more pedagogical note. Such was the case in a December 1940 speech... Read More

A couple of years ago I happened to be reading the World War II memoirs of Sisley Huddleston, an American journalist living in France. Although long since forgotten, Huddleston had spent decades as one of our most prominent foreign correspondents, and dozens of his major articles had appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic,...

Ron Unz is one of the best men of our time. He searches for truth and he supports others who do the same. In this article, he comes to the defense of David Irving, the best historian of the 20th century. Zionists destroyed David Irving’s livelihood with slander and libel, because he made public a...

I'm very pleased to announce that our selection of HTML Books now contains works by renowned World War II historian David Irving, including his magisterial Hitler's War, named by famed military historian Sir John Keegan as one of the most crucial volumes for properly understanding that conflict. With many millions of his books in print,... Read More
Myth & Reality
Standard narratives of the Third Reich have long emphasized the concept of “subhumans” (Untermenschen) as central to National Socialist thought and policy on race. Here is a typical example from Wikipedia (as of 23 March 2016): The concept of the “subhuman” clearly has a central place in the demonology of anti-Nazism, the claim that Adolf... Read More
This year—I just have time to notice!—marks the 25th birthday of Godwin’s Law. In case you don’t know Godwin’s Law, here’s the background. The internet was the plaything of academics and government types until 1989, when the first dial-up access was made available to general users. Just one year later, in 1990, Mike Godwin formulated...

We have learned “Do not make yourself a god”; now it is the time to learn “do not make yourself a demon”
Demonisation of one’s enemy is a relatively new invention. In the good old times, men fought and thenmade friends – and then fought again, like the valiant heroes of the Iliad and like the gallant knights of King Arthur. The warriors who fought and killed each other will forever drink mead and fight at the... Read More
"Herr Hitler: Is He Serious or Just Having Fun?"
New Orleans, Louisiana A week after he was praised in Life’s magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” issue, Time magazine, in its scheduled April 20, 1934, issue went a step further by making the controversial German black-shirt nationalist, just installed as chancellor, the subject of a lengthy cover story, bearing the title quoted in the headline...

While Broadway successfully hosts a musical comedy Springtime for Hitler, a prominent Californian newspaper published a revisionist article, attempting to reverse the accepted version of Nazi Germany and justify the persecution of its Jews. The author of the article has a highly original vision of the German life before Hitler’s rise to power. By subterfuge,... Read More
