Archive/File: imt/nca/nca-06/nca-06-3553-ps Last-Modified: 1997/01/29 Nazi Conspiracy and Aggression, Volume 6 [Page 240] PARTIAL TRANSLATION OF DOCUMENT 3553-PS A. ROSENBERG: MYTH OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY [Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts], Munich, 1934 To the 150th Thousand [Page 18] The "Myth" has today drawn deep, ineffaceable furrows into the emotional life of the German nation. Ever new editions are a clear indication that a decisive turning over of the spiritual soil [Page 241] is growing into a historical event. Many things which in my book seemed to be a peculiar idea have already become a reality of state policy. Many other things will yet, I hope, materialize as a further result of this new vigour. The College of the Inquisition of the Roman Church has ceremoniously put the "Myth" on the Index. This feeble protest will contribute its share to the wider dissemination of this work. I am in the best of company on the Index. The state-political revolution has ended, the change of spirit, however, has just begun. In its service the "Myth of the 20th Century" now stands among the first. Berlin, May, 1934. A. R. [Page 28] The "significance of world history" has radiated out from the north over the whole world, borne by a blue-eyed blond race which in several great waves determined the spiritual aspect of the world * * * [Page 479] The essence of the contemporary world revolution lies in the awakening of the racial types. Not in Europe alone but on the whole globe. This awakening is the organic counter- movement against the last chaotic remnants of the liberal economic commercial imperialism, whose object of exploitation out of desperation had fallen into the snare of Bolshevik Marxism, in order to complete what democracy had begun, the extirpation of the racial and national consciousness. [Page 452] Thereby the new thought is sifted out in a palpable way. It puts nation and race higher than the actual state and its form. It declares protection of the nation more important than protection of a religious belief, a class, the monarchy, or the republic; it regards treason against the nation as a greater crime than high treason against the state. [Page 642] No "Central Europe" without distinction of race and nation, as one Naumann had proclaimed, no Franco-Jewish Pan-Europe, but a Nordic Europe is the watchword for the future, with a German central Europe. Germany as a racial and national state, as the central power of the main-land, as security for the South and the Southeast; the Scandinavian states with Finland as a second alliance for the security of the Northeast, and Great Brit [Page 242] ain for the security of the West and overseas at points where it is necessary in the interests of the Nordic peoples. That still requires comprehensive confirmation. (Foot note: I do not wish here to go from the principle to single immediate European problems as they have already been dealt with in the clearest manner--See Adolf Hitler: "Mein Kampf," Vol. 2, and my work "The Essential Structure of National Socialism" ) [Page 673] After throwing off their worn-out basic ideas and the present purse proud conditions (i.e. the destruction of the New York idea), the United States of America,- which all travellers with common accord regard as a glorious land of the future, have the great task of putting into being with youthful energy the new conception of racial states which a few awakened Americans have already foreseen (Grant, Stoddard): the emigration and settlement elsewhere of the Negroes and the yellow races, the cession of East Asiatic territories to Japan, work for the preparation of a colonization by the blacks of Central Africa, the emigration of the Jews to a territory where that whole "nation" can find room, in agreement with a future settled European policy in this direction.
