Already back in the early to mid-2000s before I was seriously into conspiracy theories and facts, questioned the Holocaust and all that, the common depiction of Nazi Germany perplexed me. Supposedly they were racist and could not stand other races, but how then Japan had been one of their closest allies? Didn’t the Germans notice the Japanese were… different? Moreover I saw a TV documentary about the Nazi expedition into Tibet where they were trying to uncover traces of the alleged Aryan heritage. Back then I thought Tibet was so cool and mysterious, which raised my interest in the Nazis as well. If the Nazis hated all the other races, or thought them inherently inferior and repugnant, why would they bother to travel all the way to Tibet to look for evidence of their ancestry? The Nazi interest in Asia did not really fit the main stream narrative.
Moreover, I saw a DVD in a supermarket called The Occult History of the Third Reich. I was fascinated by it, and uncharacteristically I bought it although it wasn’t on sale. It was probably the first DVD I bought myself. When I watched it, I found it even more fascinating. The Nazis seemed to believe in something mysterious, something unknown and worth discovering. Compared to the main stream Western beliefs of both dogmatic Christianity and materialistic capitalism, the Nazi religion seemed more vibrant and alive.
I saw the documentary during the height of the War on Terror, in 2004-2005, and felt particularly trapped by the materialistic dogma of capitalism. As if the way we did things was the inherently best way of handling things, and there was no room for change or improvement. The Nazi beliefs hinted that they thought differently from the dogma of the West as well. It wasn’t all written in stone.
Back then, the Second World War looked like it was a conflict between the Old World Order of the Anglo-American Empire + France, and the Axis States that wanted to both bring something new and to revitalize something ancient. Although in my lifetime, decades after the war, the Axis States have been presented as intolerant, regressive and violent, I think that suits the Allies better. Back then I couldn’t imagine Britain, for instance, allying itself in an equal manner with a non-European nation, the way Germany did with Japan. The only way Britain would co-operate with non-Europeans is by conquering them into their empire, like India or Hong Kong. As far as I know, the Nazi expedition to Tibet was peaceful. The British expedition to Tibet in 1903-1904 wasn’t.
That was more or less my image of WWII ten about ten years ago, although I didn’t really dare to make too much of it, or bring the train of thought to its logical conclusion. So I didn’t look further until much later.
Modern media has made great effort to make people associate Hitler and the Nazis in a Pavlovian manner with hate and racism. However, if you bother to look, that’s not the whole story.
First let’s a couple of examples of anti-Nazi propaganda. This is an infamous clip from the Captain Planet cartoon with Hitler. Some bad guys apparently go back in time to sell a nuclear bomb to Hitler. When the superhero Captain Planet comes to save the day the mere presence of Hitler supposedly exudes such hate that it makes Captain Planet uncomfortable.
Who here really radiates hatred, Hitler, or the propagandists who made the cartoon? The same as contemporary Cultural Marxists who claim that everyone else is full of hate, the Cultural Marxists are the one’s who are only motivated by hate.
Apparenty this sort of propaganda originated already when Hitler was alive. There’s the infamous Jesse Owens affair. He was a black athlete who won a gold medal in the Olympics in Germany. According to the media Hitler snubbed him, because he’s black. This was a lie, and in fact Hitler congratulated him and shook his hand.
Modern research has also shown that Nazi Germany’s military was very multicultural. There were plenty of Jews, blacks, and Arabic Muslims who were in the military. Apparently the Germans trusted them enough to give them weapons.
In conclusion, like I’ve said before, the whole image of Nazis that we are presented by the main stream is mostly a fabrication. It is as real as the Captain Planet cartoon. This does not, of course, imply that the Nazis were necessary the good guys. History is not as black and white as a cartoon. But the Allies certainly weren’t fighting for any morally or spiritually lofty goals either.
The Chinese (both nationalists and communists) were allied with the Allies, but that was mainly because they fought against Japanese, which I would say is mainly due an old ethnic conflict between the two countries.
