Unlike the nebulous ravings of inane armchair philosophers and oriental mysticism, however, National Socialism is based on common sense, and it seeks its arguments in the real world, where the difference between truth and lie and between good and evil is determined by facts and not by wishful thinking and theoretic reveries.
National Socialism is able to solve all practical problems in society by applying the principles of its fundamental philosophy, and its followers do not need any foreign element to satisfy their spiritual needs.
National Socialism is really nothing but the application of physical and biological laws to the political, economic, social, and religious areas of human life in the same way as they are today applied to technology. /forum/showthread.php?t=42462   (7262 words)

 Rufus Jones and Mysticism for the Masses an article by Matthew S. Hedstrom in the Summer 2004 issue of CrossCurrents
This was the practical mysticism that Jones and Fosdick and Thurman each advocated, and that Merton's readers, the "sensible married women," evidently sought as well.
The Society of Friends, as Jones argued in his numerous histories of Quakerism and mysticism, had a deep heritage in mystical religion, and yet also was unquestionably American, unlike Roman Catholicism, which even in the middle of the twentieth century was still seen by many Americans as foreign.
For the affirmation mystic, the solitary, personal, inward, mystical experience, which for Jones always lay at the heart of spiritual life, was to be valued only insofar as it empowered the participant to service in the world. /Hedstrom0204.htm   (5041 words)

 Hitler's Program
The whole historical philosophy of National Socialism proceeds from the supposedly fundamental inequality of nations and the right of the “superior” races to trample upon and to extirpate the “inferior” races.
Present-day Europe is decomposing economically and culturally not because its national frontiers are imperfect but because the old continent is cut up in every direction by customs prison walls, separated by the disorder of inflated monetary systems, and crushed by the militarism which Europe requires to insure its dismemberment and its decadence.
When Hitler asserts with indignation that the great German people has been transformed into a second-class nation, and that this conflicts with the interests of international solidarity and the principle of equal rights for all peoples he is simply talking for effect. /archive/trotsky/works/1934/1934-hitler.htm   (4505 words)

The Nazis were also staunchly anti-Communist and regarded the leftist movement and international capitalism as the work of conspirational Jewry.

Despite attempts by nationalists to make religion or mysticism speak for nationalism, this is simply manipulation of people's belief systems.

 Ecofascism / Fascist Ideology: The Green Wing of the Nazi Party and its Historical Antecedents by Peter Staudenmaier
The National Socialist "religion of nature," as one historian has described it, was a volatile admixture of primeval teutonic nature mysticism, pseudo-scientific ecology, irrationalist anti-humanism, and a mythology of racial salvation through a return to the land.
The mantra-like repetition of the word "German" and the mystical depiction of the sacred forest fuse together, once again, nationalism and naturalism.
Still, it was largely Darré's influence in the Nazi apparatus which yielded, in practice, a level of government support for ecologically sound farming methods and land use planning unmatched by any state before or since. /library/places/germany/sp001630/peter.html   (7905 words)
