Lebensraum was Hitler’s assertion that the German people needed more land in which they could live and breathe, and this would be accomplished by annexing certain nations found to the East of Germany. Lebensraum literally means “living space.” In fact, the notion of lebensraum was found long before World War II, for Hitler coined it in his Mein Kampf first edition (1925) and in the second edition (1928) in which Hitler wrote:
And so, we National Socialists consciously draw a line beneath the foreign policy tendency of our pre–War period. We take up where we broke off six hundred years ago. We stop the endless German movement to the south and west, and turn our gaze toward the land in the East. At long last, we break off the colonial and commercial policy of the pre–War period and shift to the soil policy of the future.
Between the two World Wars, very few Germans would have found that above quote to be based in racism or eugenics. In defense of the German people, most Germans in 1935 probably would have disliked the notion of racism or eugenics. But “living space” for Germans was not so distasteful. Thus, your average German could apparently not be blamed for going along with Hitler’s desire for a little more breathing room for the fatherland.
Hitler knew that nobody would immediately sign-on to the idea of a Jewish holocaust, so lebensraum became his main public motivation to invade Poland and begin World War II. Most modern historians now demonize the German people for this, but they forget that even your average decent German saw the good sense in the lebensraum optimism. Yes, the amorphous “living space” was not quite so horrible of a philosophy. (What was horrible on these Gentiles was 7 years later when they walked through the concentration camps that claimed the lives of 6-11 million innocent Jews because of their frenzied support of a madman.)
So also today, most liberals today believe that reducing a carbon footprint and stopping global warming is worth a reduction in population. But who has to have the gnarly job of footing the bill in dying to give a more green-planet for the elite?
In my previous blog titled Bill Gates Begins His Second Genocide, I quoted Bill Gates in saying: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10% or 15%.”
I continued my thoughts in that same blog post:
It hit me that half of Americans and citizens of the Western hemisphere are so brainwashed that they not only believe in dramatic climate-change (a major scientific myth that can be disproved by easily showing the earth’s temperature had more pronounced oscillations before the Industrial Revolution) but that most Americans probably believe that a genocide of a few billion is “worth it for the greater good of a green-planet.”
Most liberal Americans do not like the idea of eugenics (hence, their avoidance of their own sordid history in Planned Parenthood) and in that same vein of their own willful-blindness, they desire to reduce the world’s population to save our planet from more “global warming” without saying who will die for the global fatherland. But they know very well who it will be. It will be Africans and Indians upon whom Gates has been testing his vaccines and sterilizing agents for years.
The average German in the late 1930s was probably not pro-eugenics, but he was pro-lebensraum. Good people need good room to live in, right? In the end, we all know it quickly became a Jewish holocaust. And somewhere along the line, your average “decent” German Gentile apparently came to believe that to make a good omelette—you have to crack a few eggs.
