This is a modified version of a FAQ made by Milton Klein in 1995.
What is National Socialism?
National Socialism is the product of over a century of political and social thought cultivated in Germanic nations, popularized and first put into action by its foremost proponent, German Führer (Leader) and Chancellor Adolf Hitler.
It represents the most sound means of assuring the survival and advancement of our race.
National Socialism was at first a political outlook adopted in several European nations, but evolved quickly into a pan-European vision.
Adolf Hitler summarized the worldview in Mein Kampf:
For me and all true National Socialists there is but one doctrine: people and
What we must fight for is to safeguard the existence and reproduction of our
race and our people, the sustenance of our children and the purity of our blood,
the freedom and independence of the fatherland, so that our people may mature for the fulfillment of the mission allotted it by the creator of the universe.
What does “Aryan” mean?
“Aryan” is derived from the Indo-European root “aryo”, meaning noble. “Aryan” has been used as a self-description of Indo-European peoples from Ireland to India for millennia, and survives today in the country names Eire (Ireland) and Iran. Last century, “Aryan” was revived from the largely forgotten heritage of our ancestors, and has been used by both scientists and laypersons as a synonym for European or White. “Aryan” is the proper designation for the peoples of Europe and their descendants across the globe, but has become a “politically incorrect” word.
Why did the Germans use the Swastika?
The Swastika (from Sanskrit, “good fortune”) is an ancient symbol representing primarily the positive powers of the Universe which generate and sustain life, and secondarily good will and good fortune toward the righteous.
The Swastika has been used for over four thousand years by Europeans and non-Europeans alike in Asia, Europe, and North America. Racialists reclaimed use of the Swastika from pre-Christian European cultures as a bold emblem suited to represent the revival of our rich heritage.
Hitler wrote (Mein Kampf II:VII) that he saw in the Swastika ”the mission of the struggle for the victory of the Aryan man” and for ”the victory of the idea of of creative work.”
Since the Swastika is banned in several democratic (!) countries, and since the symbol generates a negative Pavlovian reaction in many people due to controlled media and entertainment industry conditioning, many National Socialists use other symbols today.
What is “Blood and Soil?”
“Blood and Soil” refers to the relationship between people and homeland, and the link of the individual to the natural order. “Blood and Soil” represents reverence for the origin and miracles of life, the ideal of organic lifestyle, and the importance of truly creative work.
What is National Socialist morality and ideals?
National Socialists believe in the quest for excellence and constant improvement. National-Socialists believe the White race, and particularly our own people, must be the vanguard in the never-ending struggle to achieve humanity’s ultimate physical and spiritual potential. Therefore, we must always ask ourselves: ”is it good for our people and race?”
Moral rules exist to serve the community: to ensure its long-term survival and prosperity, for the sake of its members. Without morality, living together and cooperating peacefully in a society would be impossible. Therefore, morality is not only a private matter, but of great importance for the state.
Why do you worship Hitler?
National Socialists do not “worship” Adolf Hitler. National Socialists do offer Hitler deserving veneration for his role in bringing our race a message of hope through his leadership of the German people, and as visionary of a new Europe and a new world.
National Socialists recognize that while Hitler was an outstanding leader, he was human, capable of error. Hitler’s example serves to guide National Socialists in their efforts to initiate racial renewal.
Why do you reject democracy?
National Socialism is democratic if democracy is defined as a government that protects and promotes the interests of the population.
But National Socialists reject liberal “democracy” and its party system, in which the illusion of a people’s government is bolstered by a controlled system of “choices” that all invariably lead to the same end.
Adolf Hitler presented a legitimate alternative to the German people in his day, and was supported by the German people throughout his reign.
National Socialism does not endorse tyranny; that is, a political apparatus that functions contrary to the interests of the people. National Socialism endorses the leadership principle, the idea that a nation is best governed by those most capable of guiding their fellow citizens and providing for their common needs and wants, and what Hitler called Germanic democracy:
The [National Socialist] movement advocates the principle of a Germanic democracy: the leader is elected, but then enjoys unconditional authority. . . . All committees are subordinate to him and not he to the committees. He makes the decisions and hence bears the responsibility on his shoulders. Members of the movement are free to call him to account before the forum of a new election, to divest him of his office in so far as he has infringed on the principles of the movement or served its interests badly. His place is then taken by an abler, new man, enjoying, however, the same authority and the same responsibility. (Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf)
Why don’t you believe in ”human rights”?
National Socialists assert that in certain cases an individual’s freedom must be limited in order to protect the community.
We believe that a people’s right to survive and prosper is the most fundamental right. Without it, individual rights become meaningless.
The White peoples have been harmed by the actions of both internal and external forces, these forces operating out of hatred and/or self-interest to inhibit the social and economic health of White families worldwide, with the ultimate goal being the extinction of our kind through genocidal social, political, and economic programs.
National Socialism’s foremost goal is the liberation of the race from these genocidal policies, and implementation of alternatives which will assure our peoples’ perpetual survival and continued positive evolution. Part of this goal is to liberate the mind and soul of Whites from the unjustified guilt complex instilled by the Establishment’s schools and perpetuated by mainstream media. This undeserved shame inhibits the lives of its victims, and must be replaced by love for one’s race and nation.
The concept of ”human rights”, as described by its proponents, is dubious. These rights are arbitrarily defined, and in reality, only selectively enforced. For example, freedom of speech is claimed to be a human right, but many Western states have laws restricting freedom of speech. ”Human rights” organizations such as Amnesty International do not object when historical revisionists are jailed for investigating aspects of World War II.
Ultimately, rights are social constructs which must be upheld with force, and may be either beneficial or detrimental depending on how they are defined.
The idea of “human rights” or “international laws” applying to the entire world population is an absurdity. Such a situation is only possible if all existing states lose sovereignty and are replaced by a global state with the means to uphold such rights and laws. Otherwise, any such rights and laws will only be selectively enforced, by states or supra-national organizations who are not likely to judge in an impartial manner.
Why do you reject feminism?
Nature intends for women and men to be complementary, not contradictory. While feminists arrogantly reject women’s uniqueness, attempting to “liberate” women from their womanhood, National Socialists accept the differences between men and women as strengths. Due to these differences, or natural roles, political authority and war (which is the “continuation of politics by other means”) are masculine spheres.
See Two speeches about women for more.
Just who do you consider “White”?
Individuals are White if they are non-Jewish people of wholly European descent, descendants of the indigenous peoples of the contemporary states of Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Britain, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and Ukraine. Many persons of Albanian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Georgian, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian, and Spanish heritage also qualify as White, their ancestors being pioneers of Aryan communities in those lands.
We are a race of explorers, conquerors, scholars, inventors and artists.
Many myths about the criteria of being “Aryan” have been perpetuated by the mainstream media and Establishment academia. An Aryan is not necessarily blond, blue-eyed, and six feet tall; the blond Nordic is merely the most notable representative of the Aryan race because he or she differs most significantly from non-Aryans. National Socialism did not and does not preach or practice hatred of non-Germanic Aryans, such as the French or Slavic nations. Adolf Hitler enjoyed the work and friendship of many aides and officers of German citizenship, but Polish family name and heritage. Hitler also facilitated the independence of the Slavic nations of Croatia and Slovakia. Unfortunately, centuries-old, myopic cultural antipathy between Slavic and Germanic nations did, and does manifest itself, occasionally resulting in misunderstanding and conflict, including the 1939 Polish-German War.
Aren’t Jews also Whites?
No. Jews are a Middle-Eastern ethno-religious group with some admixture. Different Jewish subgroups share a common Middle-Eastern ancestry and are closely related to each other, and in general Jews are more related to other Jews than to their host populations. While there is a small handful of Whites and other non-Jews who have converted to Judaism, these are only insignificant exceptions and may be viewed as the Jewish tribe’s adopted sons.
According to Jewish law, a non-religious Jew is still a Jew. Thus, Jews are united primarily by common descent rather than by religion. The Jewish “religion” is in reality an evolutionary strategy disguised as a religion. Judaism’s main purpose is to protect and advance the ethnic interests of Jews by instilling loyalty to the in-group and regulating interaction with the out-group for the benefit of Jews.
Sometimes, Jews publicly describe themselves as “White”. This is merely a deception. For example, the Jew Tim Wise portrays himself as a “White anti-racist activist”. He does this in order to promote Jewish interests.
Why are you accused of being ”hateful”?
National Socialists are fundamentally motivated by love of family, people and race.
However, many racially foreign invaders living in White countries regularly engage in destructive activities, and sometimes directly harm individuals of our race. The effects of these hate-motivated activities provoke deep resentment and sometimes defensive hatred in White racialists. Hating those who threaten your community is only natural and normal.
But the agenda-driven mainstream media and entertainment industry routinely and deliberately misrepresent the ideas of White racialists, National Socialists in particular, and present the highly misleading, inaccurate and exaggerated image of the “violent White-supremacist ‘neo-Nazi’ extremist.”
What problem did Germany have with the Jews?
It’s a very complex issue. To summarize: Jews had an extremely disproportionate influence over their host society; this influence was destructive in several ways; to ensure its own future survival as a separate ethnic group, the German people, like other White peoples affected by this issue, needed (and needs again) to remove through expulsion or by other means this foreign, hostile group.
Why are you accused of murdering six million Jews?
Contrary to popular belief, no program of genocide against European Jewry existed during World War II. Unfortunate but understandable deaths resulted from Allied-inflicted acts of war which crippled the German economy and infrastructure, leading to virtual cut-off of supplies to the concentration and labor camps and the starvation or death by disease of tens of thousands of inmates. There simply was no deliberate program of genocide planned and implemented by the German government, nor is there evidence for the existence of gas chambers suitable for mass-murder at the camps alleged to be “extermination centers.”
A myth has been constructed by the enemies of our race from the spurious allegations and misrepresented facts regarding the Jewish situation during World War II, as a weapon of psychological and political extortion and manipulation.
The “Holocaust” is a “historical fact” so flimsy it must be supported by force, legislation being enacted in over a dozen “democratic” countries, making it a criminal offense to express doubt in any aspect of its dogmatic “truth.”
It has been said that history is written by the victors.
Aren’t you fascists?
Fascism is properly speaking the name of the political and social ideology espoused by Italian Duce and Premier Benito Mussolini. Italian Fascism and National Socialism have many similarities, but are properly speaking not synonymous. Italian Fascism believes in the supremacy of the State, while National Socialism believes the State is but an end to a means – the survival of the people and race – and never an end in itself. However, due to the many similarities between certain political movements in the first half of the 20th century, the term “fascism” has been used to describe all of them. Whether this is a good use of the term is debatable. C. Z. Codreanu, leader of the Romanian Iron Guard, said: “Fascism means first of all defending your nation against the dangers that threaten it. It means the destruction of these dangers and the opening of a free way to life and glory for your nation.”
Has science really proven there are no races?
Dishonest “scholarship” by the clique of politically-motivated social and bio-social scientists has resulted in a body of pseudo-science, its formulators deliberately omitting “undesirable” facts relating to the strengths and shortcomings of each unique human race.
This phony “science” is cited ceaselessly by media liars, hopelessly befuddled “intellectuals,” and the well-meaning but misled ordinary people. Equally-qualified and – educated scientists have challenged the false premises of the Establishment’s Lysenkoesque anthropology, and offer a dogma-free alternative which takes into account ignored facts.
National Socialists promote the scientific enterprise, which is simply the discovery or understanding through free inquiry of the laws and processes of the natural order, and encourage use of scientific knowledge to improve society. Scientific research flourished in National Socialist Germany, with advances occurring in medicine, psychology, environmental science, engineering, chemistry, and other fields, work by German scientists even leading directly to the success of America’s space program and Moon landings.

Shouldn’t we save the Earth first?
National Socialists recognize that to survive, the White race must have a healthy environment, free of the life-inhibiting poisons Capitalism has brought upon the world.
The National Socialist German government promulgated numerous radical nature conservation programs, including the most progressive and comprehensive legislation to date, the 1935 Reichsnaturschutzgesetz.
National Socialism today, in the tradition of strict reverence for the natural order and its life-giving elements, aims to curtail the everywhere pervasive Nature-destroying consumerism. To remedy the environmental disasters caused by the Capitalists’ mad quest for profit, National Socialists advocate implementation of sustainable, organic agriculture, responsible methods of resource extraction and use, and reduction and eventual elimination of toxic substances in our nourishment and throughout the environment.
I am an American/Brit. Why should I support something my country died to destroy?
It is terribly painful to realize the American population was used by the Roosevelt regime and the shadow string-pullers behind that cabal, but the facts demonstrate that indeed the American people were deceived, abused, by traitors, to compel them to fight their brothers and sisters in Germany during World War II.
Are the American and British peoples happier today than before the war? Are American and British schools better, streets safer, cities more beautiful today than before the war?
Adolf Hitler sincerely sought alliance with the American and British peoples, as the record shows, but the criminal Roosevelt and Churchill regimes violently rebuffed his hand of friendship.
Why do Marxists accuse you of being tools of the wealthy and powerful?
National Socialism supports all types of creative work which contribute to the health, happiness, or safety of the race and nation, and mandates proper compensation in living wages, prestige, and social services for farmers, artisans, and laborers. A National Socialist government will rigorously sanction with correction or expulsion parasitical elements which selfishly exploit the nation and refuse to contribute for the benefit of the entire community.
Marxists, however, in order to portray themselves as the only legitimate alternative, claim that every political movement other than Marxism is a “tool of the wealthy and powerful”. This is nonsense.
Domestically, National Socialists want a mixed economy. Internationally, the goal is autarky – achieving enough national self-sufficiency for the nation’s survival to not be dependent on what is called the “international community”.
See Liberalism vs. Socialism for more.
Is National Socialism left-wing or right-wing?
There is no simple answer to this because the terms “left-wing” and “right-ring” have been defined in several different ways. Some consider the National Socialist worldview to be “beyond left and right”.
Is it right to legislate morality?
All governments legislate morality. That is the purpose of legitimate government, to provide for the order, stability, and justice which guarantees citizens opportunity for happy, productive lives. The difference between a legitimate government and a tyranny is not a matter of methods, but of motives in legislating and governing the nation. A legitimate government legislates morality which benefits the people’s livelihood and happiness. An illegitimate government legislates morality that serves special interests only, leading to spiritual and social sickness for the nation.
What about Hitler’s gun control?
Misinformed individuals wrongly claim the German people were deprived of firearms during the Third Reich. While it is true the National Socialist German government did enforce many firearms regulations, the laws which are mistakenly referred to as the “Nazi gun-grab” were actually passed in 1928. The National Socialists did not come to power untill 1933. The Hitler administration in fact moderated the more strict gun control regulations of the “democratic” Weimar Republic, easing many restrictions and absolishing some altogether. The National Socialists encouraged ordinary German citizens to obtain firearms.
National Socialists support the right to individual and collective self-defense, against both ordinary thugs and corrupt regimes that operate against the well-being of the nation. Therefore, National Socialists support the right to possess, and use whenever necessary, effective firearms and proper ammunition, free of the unreasonable regulations and taxes intended to deprive the citizenry of self-defense weapons.
Was Hitler concerned only about the German people?
No. Hitler was both a German nationalist and a White racialist.
See Adolf Hitler – German nationalist or Aryan racialist? for more.
What does National Socialism offer me?
National Socialism means the opportunity of a happier, more fulfilling life for members of the community.
A National Socialist government will work for you and your best interests, using your hard-earned tax dollars for the benefit of your people’s well-being, not for “foreign aid” parasites such as, for example, Israel, or corrupt third world regimes.
National Socialism means that the worker’s productivity will enable a better today for ordinary families and an even brighter tomorrow for White children.
National Socialists support:
- Opportunities for all to have a rewarding, productive career, suited to individual ability, talent, and needs.
- Affordable opportunities for all families to truly own a home.
- Physical and spiritual health maintenance programs for all ages, emphasizing holistic nutrition and fitness awareness.
- Free, comprehensive medical services for all, with special concern for children, mothers, and the aged.
- Free, universal quality education, primary through university level, stressing excellence, practical knowledge, and love of wisdom.
- Enjoyable leisure and social activities for workers inside and outside the workplace, including family vacations, participant sports, and nature appreciation activities.
- The replacement of soul-destroying, degenerate “art” with genuine art. Cultural poison, which has been systematically promoted by the entertainment industry, will be eradicated.
How do I learn more about National Socialism? How can I help?
Collecting Third Reich memorabilia is a hobby, not activism. Discussing today’s problems while not working for the solution is whining, not activism. Painting swastikas and screaming racial slurs is stupidity, not activism.
Activism means commitment. Activism means working daily to achieve the survival, prosperity and rejuvenation of your people and race. Activism means you think, act, and look in a way that is appropriate. You should strive to have only thoughts constructive and beneficial for yourself and your kind. Work for the best interests of your people, and never do anything senselessly harmful to yourself or your people. Present yourself in a respectable manner at all times, with cleanliness and sobriety.
That means: no tattoos, no piercings, no odd haircuts or other indications of belonging to a trashy subculture. Don’t use recreational drugs or get drunk in public. Don’t be promiscuous or immodest. Be physically fit. All of this should go without saying, but unfortunately, we are today living in a degenerate culture.
Whether you should be part of a political organization or not depends largely on which country you live in. In Northern Europe, the Nordic Resistance Movement is a good organization. In Greece, the Golden Dawn is a growing party inspired by National Socialism. There are many dubious organizations and parties, so watch out.
The best thing you can do besides activism is to find a good, decent, intelligent and genetically healthy White partner and build a family. Have many children and homeschool them, as the schools are today controlled by our enemies. Avoid living in large cities: they have become poison to the soul. Don’t let your children watch TV or surf on the internet. Study European – that is, White – history and culture together with your family. Learn how to defend yourself and your family. Learn survivalist skills.
These articles will help you understand National Socialism. They were – except for the first one – written by Germans and for Germans, but should inspire all Whites.
