The Schutzstaffel (SS) was developed primarily as a politically and ideologically motivated vanguard of the N.S.D.A.P, and as such the SS was the instrument of the Folk through “Will of the Führer”. The SS were to be the incorruptible core that would act under the guidance of Adolf Hitler to recreate a Germanic biological and spiritual unity. The Germanic unity with the Reich would serve as the impetus and foundation for a folk orientated Greater Germania (Reich) with an Aryan Weltanschauung (world outlook) or Aryan Imperium where the SS would be the future Guides (Führers). According to the SS Adolf Hitler was the first principle and the living expression of the unity of the German Volk:
“His simplicity will tolerate no flattery or genuflection. He is not a dictator or autocrat, but a Guide who is bound to his Volk by a genuine relationship of mutual loyalty.”
“The German people has decided to live biologically according to the laws of nature and of life. In racial legislation and in population policy, conditions have been created for a new, healthy growth of the nation. The spirit of particularism and of regional isolation has been exorcised by the living idea of the Reich. The unity of the Reich is embodied in the Person of Adolf Hitler. In his name the dreams and the desires of past generations are fulfilled.”
These quotes are taken from SS-Junkerschule lecture notes, it is what SS cadets were being taught in the “Führer Schools”. Indeed Adolf Hitler was not a “Dictator” with absolute legalized authority ruling over a divided people, he is a Leader or Guide of a homogeneous people forming State, the State being nothing but the vessel which contains the people. The homogeneity is secured by the process of Gleichschaltung, a term that has no exact English counterpart but has been described as meaning – ‘the method which secures, at first perhaps only outwardly (a significant reservation), a political homogeneity of public life.’ Its justification is said to lie in ‘the necessity for removing all conflicting social and political forces which may, in the slightest degree, impair the domination of the unified Leader.’ The Leader or Guide is not seen as a part of the Democratic franchise that seeks the approval of the majority no matter its division, but alternatively represents the unified ideal of the people, whose views are not legislative decrees to be handed down as written laws but whose views express uncompromising eternal truths which act as guidance for the people, the people do not subscribe to the views with a atomistic vote, they support the views with their conscience and convictions. The people as a majority may be called upon by the Leader to endorse or lend support to his views and measures, but the essence of leadership is that initiative as well as decision rests with the Leader, to whom all are answerable and who leads because he serves the whole, as he is the embodiment of the whole unified people.
This political philosophy can be compared to that of the physical world view of Aristotle, in that the primary archetypal body of Man is the universal whole, there are actual different single Men so there must be the infinite potentiality of Man. So in the one Man who is Leader there is the infinite potentiality of all the unified different Men, and this is natural and according to the laws of nature and life. Democracy being contrary to this can be deemed to be unnatural and non-biological, indeed the Democracy is a contradiction in itself i.e. a Man is elected to be Leader by a majority of different men who are not themselves Leaders, the elected Leader than becomes the executor of the majority of different individual men by a conditional mechanism of counting votes. In the Democratic system it is impossible to have a natural Leader even though its mandate is to elect a Leader.
According to the SS Credo the Führer is the individual who responsibly represents the unified whole, he does not represent those who are contrary to the unified whole, the unified whole is not determined by single individual votes but it can be if that is the will of the Führer.
