Decadence and Homosexuality

“I would like to develop a couple of ideas for you on the question of homosexuality. There are those homosexuals who take the view: what I do is my business, a purely private matter. However, all things which take place in the sexual sphere are not the private affair of the individual, but signify the life and death of the nation, signify world power or ‘swissification.’ The people which has many children has the candidature for world power and world domination. A people of good race which has too few children has a one-way ticket to the grave, for insignificance in fifty or a hundred years, for burial in two hundred and fifty years…”

– Heinrich Himmler

National Socialism is a revolutionary movement in revolt against the selfish indulgence of modern decadence. That is. National-Socialism insists that individuals do their honourable duty and place the interest of their race before their own self-interest. To selfishly indulge oneself, and thus ignores one’s duty. is to be decadent – to be lacking in self-discipline and thus possess a weak character. To be decadent, means both (a) to have little or no purpose to one’s life beyond self-indulgence, and (b) to live in such a way that what is noble and excellent (and thus evolutionary) is undermined and destroyed. Of course, our present society makes it easy for people to indulge themselves and be decadent; indeed, our society positively encourages people, and particularly the young, to ignore their duty, and ignore what is noble and excellent, as it encourages them to be ill-disciplined and fundamentally weak.

In contrast to our modern society, National Socialism is idealistic. That is, it seeks to produce strong, self-disciplined individuals by encouraging those individuals to strive to achieve, or live-up to certain noble ideas: it encourages them to strive for excellence, for themselves, and for their race. By striving, they become noble and thus advance or evolve themselves. A National Socialist is someone whose life has a purpose beyond self-indulgence and beyond merely having a good time. A National Socialist is, or strives to be, self-disciplined and idealistic – using their life to achieve something. As such, National Socialists are stronger, more healthy, more Aryan, than other Aryans, because only National Socialism represents and expresses what it means to be Aryan, and what is necessary for Aryan health and well-being.

Furthermore. National Socialism totally rejects what is decadent. It rejects everything which produces weak individuals with weak character, as it rejects everything which encourages selfish indulgence before doing ones duty, and everything which is detrimental to the health and well-being of the race. Thus National Socialism stands opposed to such things as homosexuality – not on conventional bourgeois (‘middle-class’) moral grounds (it totally rejects conventional bourgeois values) but because such things weaken the race and express selfish indulgence. To National Socialism, such things are decadent because they do not aid the race – and express only personal indulgence, and a lack of self-control. A homosexual, for instance, is someone who places their own sexual preference before the well-being of their race – fundamentally, they seek selfish pleasure, and are not prepared to try and control whatever impulses they may have. They want to ·express themselves’ – and ‘be what they are. But they are only what they allow themselves to be, and they can be either decadent, and thus homosexual, or strong. That is, they can achieve their own ‘triumph of the will’ by trying to be strong. It is the duty of such people to strive to be strong and to try and aid their race, thus placing their race before their own feelings or pleasures. Thus, if such a person cannot marry, and produce healthy Aryan children, then their duty is to act in a self-disciplined way, restrain their impulses, and strive to do noble things to aid their race. If such people act in such a self-disciplined and noble way, then they have ceased to be homosexuals. To do anything else, is to act in a decadent way, and to be weak. National Socialism gives such people a choice -become self-disciplined, and thus cease to be decadent and cease to harm your race; or remain weak and decadent. A National Socialist society deals harshly with those who so refuse to so their noble duty, because such weaklings are a danger to others, and might infect them with that contagious disease, decadence, which weakens individuals and civilizations, and destroy their vitality.

The ideals which National Socialism upholds in its fight against decadence are Aryan ideals. and National Socialism aims to use these ideals to create an Aryan society were Aryan values of honour, loyalty and duty. It is a society of strong, healthy, self-disciplined individuals who have a sense of purpose, and who, because of this sense of purpose, have a far more rewarding, far more enjoyable life than any decadent person could ever conceive. In short, such disciplined warriors, using their lives to achieve things, have become like gods – they have evolved to become a new elite, a new higher race who have fulfilled the promise of evolution latent within us all.

We Aryans have a choice – we can either become National Socialists, strive to fulfil our promise and thus become like gods, or we can be decadent, selfishly indulge ourselves, and live like sub-humans.
