i must admit to being pretty swayed by SOME of the thinking and stuff in this book. there is the obvious racist rhetoric that pulsates throughout the entirety of the book but im a sucker for books that come out woth different angles on things that i took for absolut granted. the book is about the nordic aryan superiorty and how the berbers of morocco, the Aryan indians, persians, greeks and a few other races all had that blonde haired blue eyed gene amalgamated in with their indigenous genes. the books talks about the warrior races of the nordic past and the myths that evolved around them as supposed to the unchalangeable role of intellectualism that penetrates most of the world today. its heavily antijewish and claims that the jews and their capitalism that comes with them were responsible for a lot of the corruption that europe was gripped with. the book was very phlosophical in places but at the same time very assumptive about the unchallengable role that the nordic races should have and will one day play in the world. mentioned a few other books that i have already ordered (Schleiermacher's soliloquies and language thought and reality). the book also talks a bit about protestantism and the deleterious effect of catholicism on the world. the book covers a lot and is fairly well written. challenging and in places ridiculous but certainly worth a read.
