Random Thoughts (I): Hitler and the Nazis

Random Thoughts (I): Hitler and the Nazis

The Chinese writer Lu Xun used to write essays called ‘Random Thoughts,’ although random is also translatable as ‘miscellaneous.’
This is quite a good thing to do. Here are a few thoughts which are only loosely bound together; they do, however, center around a few important themes.

1. Re-Release of Mein Kampf

Ohhh, the butthurt!
Europeans should be too smart to condone book burnings. Haven’t we moved on from the days of Torquemada?
Get the books out there, get all the haters out there, use logic and reason to refute them, and a heavy dose of rhetoric and ridicule when you’re screamin out for the gravy, and let ’em have it! Hand the fascists their proverbials on a plate!
Befriend your evil…
Embrace it!
There shouldn’t have to be a false choice between fascist Nazis and fascist book burners.

2. Godwin’s Law

The rise of ISIS has perhaps made it a little more socially acceptable to make Hitler analogies.
How long will it be before it is less ‘offensive’ to draw analogies between ‘Far Center’ warmongers and Far Right killers?

3. No Godwin But

I’ve devised a #NoGodwinBut hashtag. Isn’t it important not to sacralize Hitler and the Nazis? I.e. not to make them holy ground, and to isolate them completely? The notion of a pure, uncaused, and as it were ‘ahistorical’ evil, profoundly taints the Holocaust discourse of today. The Holocaust has been made ‘exceptional,’ and severed from the broader World-Historical process.

4. Crimes Against Humanity

What mass atrocities get to be called ‘genocides’ or ‘crimes against humanity,’ on what grounds, and most importantly of all, who decides, is an extremely important question.
These propaganda terms are used to set up hierarchies of esteem between different mass atrocities.
“He who controls the past controls the future.”
They are ideological weapons of (Not-So-)Global Realpolitik. One thing is certain: you will never, ever see a politician from #thegoodguys being accused of genocide.
Only their alleged ‘racial inferiors’ in Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, wherever.
The whole idea of white genocide is completely idiotic; but then again, so is any non-sarcastic, non-ironic use of the term. The cynical, conniving Washington gangsters who have been propagating this imbecilic rhetorical gesture for decades deserve their share of the blame for the invention of the ‘white genocide’ canard.
Even if genocide weren’t a largely subjective term, there is no reason to be believe a mass atrocity absent of such a motivation (or of such a causal-explanatory implication) as the destruction of an entire ethnicity is any less evil than one with.
Murder is murder.
Butchery is butchery.
There really is no need for all the idle intellectualizing surrounding mass atrocities/democide. An atrocity is an atrocity, and that’s an end to it.

5. Never Again

I’ll keep on saying it: Crimes Against Humanity are Victimless Crimes!
As an autistic person, belonging to one of the demographics targeted by the Nazi Holocaust perpetrators, I will never permit the Holocaust to be trivialized by demeaning, degrading, deviously divisive rhetoric like ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ and ‘Genocide.’ All mass atrocities matter.
Let’s always focus on the individual suffering.
Communities,’ ‘races,’ ‘Humanity.’
These are all unnecessary distractions.
What is a Crime Against Humanity, in comparison to a Crime For Humanity?
