<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">One of the most intriguing facts of the Nazi Party membership rolls is how <span style='font-size: 11pt'>many of its adherents belonged to what today would be considered the green movement. Even many ‘greens' who were not Nazi Party members, like Leni Riefenstahl (1902-2003), the infamous propaganda filmmaker for the Third Reich, became caught up in the new movement.</span> Nazi biologist Walther Schoenichen asserted that National Socialism was the political fulfillment of more 100 years of German Romanticism. With its strong emphasis upon celebrating the authenticity of the German folk people (das volk) indigenously rooted in the natural landscape of their homeland in great contrast to the liberalism of the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution, German Romanticism is one of the great foundational pillars of modern environmentalism. While in hindsight, some environmental historians may debate over <span style='font-size: 11pt'>how green the Nazis were in actual practice, the National Socialist aspirations for a greener Germany cannot be denied.</span> ...

Their life in Weimar Germany was characterized by depression and defeat under laissez faire capitalism, but these harsh realities and embarrassments could all be escaped from in the lofty alpine hills where such considerations somehow became unimportant. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Abandoned and forsaken by the Weimar Republic, many of them would unfortunately find romantic solace in the isolationist ideology of the Nazi Party.</span> ...

However, Riefenstahl is infamously known as the director of the notorious 1935 propaganda film <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Triumph of the Will that even manages to showcase the Nazi green jobs agenda</span> of the time. In one particular scene at the colossal Nuremberg rally, <span style='font-size: 11pt'>militant, uniformed Germans are shown with shovels in their hands instead of rifles as they cry out, "we plant trees!"</span> Later, Riefenstahl made the highly acclaimed documentary film Olympia shot at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The film strongly emphasized the competitive natural strength of the athletes. While<span style='font-size: 11pt'> Jesse Owens may have gone home with four gold medals and four oak trees as gifts from the Fuhrer</span>, Germany came away with most of the other gold medals. ...

After the war, Leni Riefenstahl followed in the footsteps of <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Charles Lindbergh. Lucky Lindy had Nazi sympathies in the 1930's</span>, and later became a radical environmentalist. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Late in life, Riefenstahl became involved with Greenpeace.</span> She died in 2003 at the age of 101. ...

Von Dassanowsky even went so far to strongly suggest that the heroine <span style='font-size: 11pt'>in the Titanic, Rose, is actually based on Riefenstahl's personal character</span>. He then intimates that Cameron may have indeed directed the Titanic to show how Riefenstahl's untamed feminism eventually overcame her compromised relationship with the chauvinism of the Nazis, represented by her dictatorial fiancé on the ship, whom she never married. In the end, Riefenstahl, like Rose, redeemed herself from the dictatorial Nazi regime.

Even more startling, <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Cameron also borrowed from Nazi Germany's own version of the Titanic made in 1943. In the Nazi version, the hero of the story is a German officer who blames the English profit crazed capitalistic owners of the ship for sinking the Titanic.</span> In the end, Nature's iceberg proves to be more powerful than all of the superficial worries and concerns of those attached to the manipulations of the stock market. A romance also develops between a German musician and an already engaged woman. This romance, however, is left undeveloped in the Nazi film. Cameron's movie seemingly picks up where the Nazis left off by focusing on the romance between Rose and Jake. Jake, of course, is the drifter played by Leonardo Dicaprio who upsets the pre-arranged marriage plans of Rose's aristocratic fiancé.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>One also wonders if Cameron's Avatar was made with Riefenstahl's never completed Nuba documentary film in mind? Instead of the Nuba, Cameron calls the nature worshiping indigenous tribe in Avatar the Na'vi. Just exactly who are these Na'vi anyway? The answer to that question may be much more compromising than many might assume. Indeed, it was Jewish historian Dr. Harold Brackman who noted that what unsettled him the most about Cameron's Avatar was that it borrowed heavily from the Neo-Nazism of Savitri Devi. It was Savitri Devi who helped transition the Nazi blood and soil mythology into a Neo-Nazi New Age environmentalism that lurks in the background of the modern green movement.</span>

To add more gasoline to the fire is that James Cameron's hero in both films, Jake, is based on Jack London's own character. This means that Social Darwinism and the call of the wild certainly means something to James Cameron. It also must be pointed out that while the Nazis did burn Jack London's Marxist-Socialist books, they left alone his wilderness adventure stories. That Jack London was also a white racist only compromises the issues further. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Thus, James Cameron has managed to give the world two spectacular movies starring Jack London and Leni Riefenstahl, all decorated in green socialist themes and wrapped up with romantic streaks of multicultural, indigenous racism. </span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Certainly James Cameron loathes the mythical Hitler of the modern leftist imagination that trumpets the Nazis as an extreme right wing movement thanks to 80 years of Marxist and Socialist propaganda. On the other hand, do we really believe Cameron does not know Hitler was called "Avatar" by Savitri Devi in her 1958 Neo-Nazi manifesto called "The Lightning and the Sun?"</span> Put in another way, can the shift to New Age indigenous environmentalism atone for the racist political biology of the Nazi past like getting out of a previous bad marriage? While James Cameron certainly thinks so, the verdict is still out with regard to that particular ecological question.

Indeed, Luc Ferry, the author of "The New Ecological Order" wrote that <span style='font-size: 11pt'>"we have to be ignorant or prejudiced not to see it: Nazism contains within it, for reasons that are in no way accidental, the beginnings of an authentic concern for preserving ‘natural,' which is to say, here again, ‘original' peoples." Ferry then goes on to establish the surprising link between Nazi authenticity and modern environmental multiculturalism, "like the aesthetics of sentiment and deep ecology, which also place new value on primitive peoples, mountain folk, or American Indians, the National Socialist conception of ecology encompasses the notion that the Naturvolker, the ‘natural peoples,' achieve a perfect harmony between their surroundings and their customs. This is even the most certain sign of the superiority of their ways over the liberal world of uprootedness and perpetual mobility. Their culture, similar to animal ways of life, is a prolongation of nature." Thus, the distinction between National Socialism and a multicultural national geographic is not as big of a repentance as many would like to presume.</span> </div></div>
