As I have said on another occasion: being „Aryan“ isnot the point, becoming „Aryan“ is what matters. In thisrespect an enormous task remains to be fulfilled by allof us: the i n n e r liberation from entangling andensnaring Semitism. This is about the fundamental
thinking of all world-views and all religion; there — atthe beginning — the roads divide; may this modestbooklet encourage many people to leave the high roadsand climb the steep mountain path — the
of the ancient Aryans — that leads to the high summits.Never forget this one thing: by thinking alone thinkingcan be liberated; he who doesn't have the courage orthe staying power to rethink the thoughts of the Aryanrace of thinkers, is and will remain a servant,regardless his ancestry, for he is mentally imprisoned,blind, bound to earth.
