I rarely talk about myself, but in my case, the obedient boy would have grown [metaphorically] gay had it not been for the mixed-sex schooling. I am a totalitarian at heart, and I would appreciate a state-mandated political fighter GF.
> “Similarly, one cannot teach the same things, and in the same spirit, even to young people of the same sex who, later on, will have to engage in unrelated activities.”
Isn’t this how Germany operates, with their Realschulen und Gymnasien? I never understood how a distinction at such a young age can be fair at all.
> “To do so would be to burden their memory with a heap of information which they, for the most part, have no use for…”
Savitri seems to be a fan of the stupid fat Amerimutts who can’t point Australia on the map. Who needs the knowledge of the map? Who needs poetry? Who needs history? Yes, the traditional societies were indeed oh-so-erudite!

I thought, a cultural genocide of non-Aryans was desirable? I guess, not to her.

To my understanding, the education as it is is necessary for the functioning of the technological state (see the USSR).

The Confucian state-exam system was not “initiatory” but thorough, with such subjects as poetry, calligraphy, painting, and the knowledge of the classics reflected.
Or from more recent times (Gaokao):
The exams last about nine hours over a period of two or three days, depending on the province. The Standard Chinese language and mathematics are included in all tests. […] In addition, students must choose between two concentrations in most regions, either the social-science-oriented area (文科倾向) or the natural-science-oriented area (理科倾向). Students who choose social sciences receive further testing in history, political science, and geography (文科综合), while those who choose natural sciences are tested in physics, chemistry, and biology (理科综合).
> “But these soldiers of the first hour were to form, little by little, together with the young people rigorously selected and hardened in the ‘Burgs’ of the SS Order in the asceticism of the body, of the will and knowledge, to form an aristocracy, henceforth hereditary and strongly rooted—owner of vast family estates in the conquered areas—and itself hierarchical. These members of the elite corps par excellence, among whom the most beautiful and valuable sons of peasants, the most brilliant academics of good breeding, and many young representatives of the old and rigid German nobility, were to gradually merge into a true caste: an inexhaustible reservoir of candidates for superhumanity.”
This is not necessarily a bad idea, although I do consider a complete indoctrination of the entire people preferable. Case in point: out of Juche Korea’s population of ca. 25.5 mil., 6.5 mil. are members of the WPK – a quarter of the total. This is why I admire the DPRK so much – the country where you can hear songs about the Führer in the streets every morning, where they manage to preserve their race in a deeply-echeloned defence.
Isn’t this traditionalism? Isn’t the knowledge of one’s limits the common virtue in mythology? Didn’t the NSDAP overplay its hand? Does Shambhala go out of its way to conquer the outside world?
> “‘For the Great Reich’ but also for the return of the whole Earth to a life based on traditional truth; ‘for the Great Reich’ because he alone could be the instrument of this recovery in extremis, if any somewhat lasting recovery was not already impossible.”
In many ways, this is Occidental hubris. The failure of Europe does not negate the existence of Asia. How can man know the divine truth to begin with? Clearly, it is expressed with the stride of history. Even the Christians best destroy themselves.
I remember hearing about the mastery of oneself. That which is falling deserves no aid.
P.S. I rarely see dreams, but this day, I dreamt of school. How fittingly idealist of me.
Editor’s note: What Savitri says below about the extreme imbecility of identical education for all kids is fundamental. It is right in the school where the unpolluted minds of white children and adolescents are being corrupted to the extent of producing, as a factory, millions upon millions of identical cogs that the System will then […]This reblog was created using the function in the Reader list, for apparently Chechar has disabled the function.
