Race theories and the idea of a fundamental inequality of people appeared in the West before Hitler, and they were very popular there, but Russia refused to accept this, said philosopher, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on the program Conversation with a Sage on the Zvezda radio station.
On the program, the civilizational difference between the West and the Russian civilizational identity was discussed. Gene engineering, artificial conception, cyborgization, euthanasia, and other concepts are strongly promoted in the West, and they take root there, but in Russia they recollect unpleasant parallels with the concepts of 1930s and World War Two, host Anna Shafran noted.
“The simplest thing we can say about this is that Hitler did not appear out of nothing. Race theories and everything related to certain ideas about Man existed before Hitler. Furthermore, they were even much less developed in Germany than in the UK and the USA. And they were very popular. Then Hitler took them over, and he strongly amplified them, and he put a massive portion of them into practice,” Kurginyan told.
“The the majority of the Western world said, ‘Indeed, he is doing a good job, he is our student, a good guy as we would say today, and so active. How well he is implementing everything in practice!’ But the smaller part of the world said, ‘He is an anti-humanist. He must not do that,’” he added.
Kurginyan reminded that US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt could have failed to come to power in the USA as there were other candidates, and that any other one would have supported Hitler. In Europe, there were governments that loved Hitler’s Germany very much and wanted to cooperate with it.
However, Prime Minister Winston Churchill came to power in Britain, and the anti-German policy prevailed. This means, the policy prevailed which was traditionally against the continental Europe, against any serious strengthening of Germany, the political scientist noted.
“Geopolitical interests turned out to be very important, and it was reluctantly said that the Nazis were bad. And they were fought for a little while. And after they were fought for a little while, they were immediately taken to the USA and the UK,” Kurginyan reminded.
