Analysis Of Mein Kampf By Adolf Hitler

717 words - 3 pages

After reading excerpts from Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf I have come to understand that Adolf Hitler insists that a master race of Germans is the only way for humanity to overcome the boundaries that it has placed itself in and continue to evolve.
Adolf Hitler makes it quite clear early on in this passage that he views the human race as not just one unified species, but as many sub species crammed into one. Upon reading you begin to notice his views on the master race when he speaks on what happens when two races that are not equal mate and create offspring. He says and i quote
“Any crossing of two beings not at exactly the same level produces a medium between the level of the two parents. This means: the offspring will probably stand higher than the racially lower parent, but not as high as the higher one. Consequently, it will later succumb in the struggle against the higher level. Such mating is contrary to the will of Nature for a higher breeding of all life.”
According ...view middle of the document...

The inferior does not mate with the inferior. Such is the will of nature.
“No more than Nature desires the mating of weaker with stronger individuals, even less does she desire the blending of a higher with a lower race, since, if she did, her whole work of higher breeding, over perhaps hundreds of thousands of years, might be ruined with one blow.”
Hitler uses nature as his supreme example. He justifies his extreme nationalism by using mother nature, her creations, and the growth of her creations to push his views that only the master race shall procreate. such is the will of mother nature. The only way for humanity to continue on is discontinuing all of what Hitler would think as interspecies breeding.
Hitler's extreme nationalism is very influential to his writing. He explains the superiority of the Aryan race and how its mingling with any lesser species would result in a complete destruction of culture. He uses the example of Germans in America to support his claims on their racial superiority to all other races of humans.
“Any crossing of two beings not at exactly the same level produces a medium between the level of the two parents. This means: the offspring will probably stand higher than the racially lower parent, but not as high as the higher one. Consequently, it will later succumb in the struggle against the higher level. Such mating is contrary to the will of Nature for a higher breeding of all life.”
In Hitler’s mind, the reason that Germans are apparently so superior to all the other races in america is because they choose to only breed with those who share a ethnical background and because the German people are indeed the master race of human beings. They achieved success in a land that was not their own, therefore they are the standard. According to Hitler, the German races ability to rise to the top means they are above the other members of the human race and that they are the only solution to continuing the forward evolution of humanity. without them humanity is doomed.
In conclusion, Adolf Hitler insists that the master race of Germans, or more generally Aryan peoples is the only way for humanity to overcome any of its boundaries and forward its evolutionary process. This is shown by his separation of the human species into many subspecies and his extreme sense of nationalism for the people of Germany.
