Humor Nazis – 15

Episode #15: Meme Time with
Wehrmacht & Waffen ϟϟ Volunteers!


Ok, so in all earnestness, our great army did not start out this way, however we did soon recognize that peoples liberated from British Imperialism, Soviet Communism, and rampantly speculative international finance had an extreme distaste for those systems and thus many readily joined our cause.

We built a pretty cool army, I’d say!

Its spirit lives on.

Humor Nazis – 14

Episode #14: Srulik Thinks

TL;DR – God chose us, we can do what we want.

The funny thing is that the Jews accuse Hitler of using strength to achieve peace, however when the Führer did it, the Jews were at a disadvantage and caught off balance, thus they demonized him to all ends possible. Conversely now, when use of power suits them, they do it proudly. Because they only care for their tribe and no one else. That’s Chutzpah.


They also accused me of making them wear the symbol of their ideology in public, while I was doing the same thing with the symbol of my ideology. More Chutzpah.

More actual humor next time!

Stay tuned!

The 1998 science fiction action film Soldier is an interesting obscure gem of a movie. Produced on a big budget with high end action sequences and both a dystopian and a post-apocalyptic production design. However, most interesting is the in-story universe that has some very particular background details that need to be examined a bit more closely than a casual viewing would typically encourage in order to be noticed. It is with these details that some compelling concerns about eugenics, the dangers of transhumanism, and even the reluctant hero can be seen in this overlooked and genre-wise quite unconventional movie.

In what looks like the somewhat near future, there’s a new major armed forces organization in the US, and possibly also in Canada and Mexico that could have all be joined into or annexed into some sort of confederation. This is implication can be gauged from the name of this military formation, the American Forces. The emblem for this army includes both the English and Spanish name, Fuerzas Americanas, however like most telling background details in this film, it isn’t pushed or even mentioned in dialog. The characters treat it as an established and entrenched reality, thus it’s to an inquisitive audience to notice.

Eugenics: The Adam Project
At the start of the movie we seen infants being tagged at a birthing ward. The man tagging them wears a uniform and armed guards stand nearby. This is start of a eugenics program, called “The Adam Project,” to bring children up from birth to be soldiers. Training essentially starts at day one as the soldiers go on to show no knowledge of life outside of their elite unit. The main character, Todd, sums up the whole of his feelings in a later scene, “fear and discipline.” This is confirmed by the “rules for life” that are partially heard in the background as the child soldiers are forced to watch a boar be torn up by aggressive dogs.

The list is a supplement graphic that comes with a home media release of the film.

Again just like the film-world details, it’s just there to be noticed, but never pushed or explicitly brought up. The aggressive dogs, very likely a pilot project to the bigger and much ambitious endeavor of the Adam Project, are a smaller scale version of the product that Todd and his fellow cadets are to become: obedient, aggressive, unquestioning, and pretty much all the soldiers’ rules listed can also be made to match the dogs’ behavior. This becomes even more apparent as the training proceeds. Todd puts together a puzzle in record time, the shape is a pyramid, which is an old symbol of elitist hierarchy in one of its most popular interpretations. In putting it together, he is effectively shown to be working to uphold such a system.

Next the increasingly hardened cadets indicate their obedience to the rules as dummy targets are shot at with innocents being avoided, but only to save ammo, because if an enemy hides behind an innocent then the innocent is shot down to so that the enemy behind them may be killed. Rules 3, 5, 7, & 8 obeyed to a T.

The training then goes onto reflect the real world experience that the soldiers have. In one scene Todd is shown shooting through an innocent women to kill the enemy soldier who has taken her hostage. Otherwise, he would have ignored her. This montage scene of Todd’s unit’s combat experience is filled with many interesting details and implications. There is a whole lot of war going on in various places around the globe. We already have some compelling details to show that the American continent may have some sort of new super state on it with its own military force – American Forces/Fuerzas Americanas – but what is there to say that there are no other super states that have formed? And that these are all in a perpetual war deadlock, hence all the fighting all over the world? And that this context created a suitable space for an idea like the Adam Project? This dystopian subtext is chillingly Orwellian as presented in George Orwell’s book 1984, where Soviet-style militarized mega-states fight a perpetual war, but don’t achieve any meaningful victories. There’s just a perpetual death match that feeds the military-industrial-political complex.

At the end of this scene we see a dossier and status screen for Todd, which includes the various battles that he’s fought in. Let’s take a close look at it. “Montana Insurrection” – Montana is a US federal state, why were the “American Forces” deployed there? Well insurrection of course! But what compelled citizens to go through with an insurrection in the first place? Next, “Bolivian Coup” – knocking off foreign heads of state and putting in puppets has been a US covert ops basic play since the early part of the Cold War in the 20th Century, now it seems they just go in with guns blazing. “Battle of Shanghai” – that’s quite far from the American continent, so some of that mega-state rivalry seems to be at hand. “Shoulder of Orion” – this a reference to the film Bladerunner that was written by the same screenwriter, David Peoples, and it is one of the more telling details. In the aforementioned film, androids are made to serve humans and fight wars for them, and one android character recalls “attack ships on fire off the Shoulder of Orion.” So the Adam Project could be an early step in the direction of creating cyborgs and/or androids. Lastly, “Nibian Moon Campaign” – this just further confirms that these wars happen beyond Earth. Moons are often barren and rocky, making them prime places for mining colonies, thus hypothetical space empires will, no doubt, fight over them, especially once they burned through all of their home world’s resources.

One final point here is the name “Adam Project.” This is a reference to the Jewish (and Judeo-Christian) creation myth in which YHWH molds man in his image from mud and clay and calls the first of these “Adam.” A version of this may then be repeated as a ritual by an appropriately elder rabbi to create a golem. And what do we have next?^

Golems: Designer Killers
The military’s super soldier project has gone to the next level: from breeding via eugenics to genetic design and wholesale creation. The officer in charge of training the new unit, Colonel Mekum says, “They’re practically manufactured” and “the mind controls the body, after all. And we’re doing such wonderful things with the mind.” This amounts to factory-based creation of obedient and hard hitting soldiers who don’t even have to be trained to obey, they are simply made that way. The self-sustainability of a strong organic body and the programming of a robot amount to what is essentially a transhumanist realization of Jewish golem lore.

It’s important to step back here and more closely examine the term “eugenics” and see why Todd’s unit is a creation of eugenics, while the new soldiers are beyond it. Eugenics is not simply selective breeding, it is a scientifically motivated political order that seeks to make it expedient for a race to out-breed other races. The “eu” in the word “eugenics” is the same root as in the word “euthanasia” and this word translates to “easy death.” There is no positive moral connotation implied and that’s why the original concept of moral government was called “aristocracy” not “eucracy.”

Eugenics is the goal of all ethnocentric movements, since these all fall in line with the idea (whether they voice it explicitly or not) that civilization has come to obstruct natural selection and thus pressures must be artificially exerted so as to bring this natural selection back, yet at the same time civilization must not be toppled, but even strengthened. The result of this is ethnocentric and apartheid states, such as Israel, where a few “chosen” by eugenics (YHWH by another name) rule over the goyim, just as the herder does over his cattle. No surprise then that the world’s currently most murderous army has seen a high demand for its sperm from the “chosen” for whom it upholds apartheid.

“The differences between Jews and Gentiles are not religious, historical, cultural or political. They are, rather, racial, genetic and scientifically unalterable. The one group is at its very root and by natural constitution ‘totally evil,’ while the other is ‘totally good.’” ~Romemut Yisrael Ufarashat Hagalut by Rabbi Saadya Grama

This fanatical obsession with “otherness” has led to Jews and those compatible with their ways of thinking to declare things such as “race war” and the like. Of course, the Jews being dishonest about their racism, unlike Gentiles who mostly just simply admit it, claim to be champions of diversity and tolerance and all those liberal, feel good talking points, while quietly working their goals. Gentile racists see this and lash out at the hypocritical Jews, as well as at other “others,” and thus the race war can be started by dupes, while the Jews further their goal and claim innocence at the same time.

“While all other religions endeavor to explain to the people by symbols the metaphysical significance of life, the religion of the Jews is entirely immanent and furnishes nothing but a mere war-cry in the struggle with other nations.” ~Arthur Schopenhauer

Back to the movie, Todd’s unit, commanded by Captain Church – a symbolic name – is representative of traditionalism that has slipped far enough into eugenics. They may be only soldiers, bred and born to fight and die, but who says that theirs is the only eugenics project going on? In all likelihood the mega-state elites have their own breeding program, something like Chabad-Lubavitch, to ensure a “pure” and obedient Poliburo. It’s a Brave New World. And this brings us to Caine.

No longer just bred selectively, therefore not eugenics, but rather made and configured on the genetic level in the test tube and then gestated in an incubator. This is exactly what happens in the book Brave New World and also in the film Bladerunner, and this latter example is more relevant to this movie as test tube breeding doesn’t seem to have yet dominated society in this world, but is merely being used to create efficient slaves, while the elite can still enjoy their natural tendencies and this puts it right in line with Zionism which seeks to subjugate the goyim, all non-Jews.

“Non-Jews have no compassion by nature and should be killed, in order to limit their tendencies” ~Rabbi Yitzak Shapira

If non-Jews are to be killed, who will do the work once they are gone? That will be the chore of golems, such as Caine and his new military unit that is lead by Mekum, who’s played by Jewish actor Jason Isaacs. Mekum boasts about his soldiers and on the surface they seem to be better in every way. They shoot with greater accuracy, even on sustained full-automatic. They run at a faster pace than Church’s soldiers, finishing well ahead in a 15 mile run even after starting quite late. And finally, Caine manages to defeat three of the original soldiers in hand-to-hand combat, killing two and wounding Todd, who’s thought to be dead. Even after all of that exertion Caine doesn’t even show signs of sweating, further indicating a redesign of human biology or even a bolstered imitation.

During the previously mentioned fight that Caine wins, Todd manages to scar Caine by tearing one of his eyes out, much to Mekum’s anger. He gives Caine a run down on how expensive it’s to maintain him as a soldier and then tells the rest of the unit that now “all he can do is walk point, and take the first hit” due to a lack of depth perception. Yet, later we see that all the new golem super soldiers basically do that, showing no tactical ingenuity in battle. They have been made to obey, and that’s just what they do. If no one’s there to give them very specific orders, they just run on a mediocre autopilot. This grand posturing and rather empty show of power is even seen in Mekum himself who seems to have never lead a unit in combat. In a scene where he’s outlining a “biannual security sweep” mission across several planets he mentions having a chance of seeing his new soldiers in a “non-training environment.” On top of this Mekum always wears what looks to be a dress uniform, not the field uniform that Church wears. Thus, it’s pretty obvious that he’s pretty much never experienced and lead a military operation.

Additionally, this scene refers back to the Orwellian theme of super states in perpetual war, as this “security sweep” echoes the old naval patrols of imperial waters with imperial space being patrolled. The war for resources on Earth has spread far out beyond the human home world of Earth, just like the empires of the past had stretched their pursuit of material riches into other continents.^

The Struggle
After the hangar fight with Caine, Todd is thought to be dead and is sent out on a waste disposal ship that dumps him on a planet serving as a junkyard. From this, further details of the situation on Earth can be inferred. Namely, there is so much refuse being produced that there’s no room on Earth for it, and no technology has been developed to recycle the massive amount of trash buildup. As Todd walks amidst the heaps of garbage, a US Navy aircraft carrier is prominently visible, it’s can also be seen on the film’s poster. At the time of the film’s production, the US Navy’s aircraft carriers were the largest operational war machines and in this future, human war fighting capability has increased so much that they’ve haven’t even been scrapped, just tossed away. This is probably not a realistic depiction of technological progress, which tends to be gradual and technological systems see refitting and upgrades before being scrapped, but for the purposes of showing the film’s world, it’s an apt metaphor for an early 21st century audience.

Wandering the planet, Todd sees what look to be some humans and follows them to some sort of makeshift town. He still does not reveal himself as his training to treat everything other than his military unit as potentially hostile remains strong. However, when an unexpected gust of wind knocks him down from his hiding position and reveals him to the townspeople, Todd gets something that he never expected: compassion.

The people that he is taken in by, a small community of villagers, are an echo of what he has seen before during his war experiences. Todd saw innocents intermittently throughout battlefields and his service record suggests, due to his extensive on Earth military service, that this is a regular thing. However he never knew quite what to make of it. In one war zone, he saw a young girl whose family had been gunned down around her, and Todd has just killed those responsible, though his interaction with her is merely a brief stare as he reloads his assault rifle before he pushes further through an urban inferno. Yet, there seemed to be a hint of curiosity on Todd’s part in that scene, thus Todd’s normally hyper-focused battle-oriented mentality encountered a vacuum. He feels that he must do something, he just doesn’t know what. Compassion was never a part of his life, yet the absence of it seems to affect him, even if in a small way.

Now in the village, Todd is hosted by a couple, Mace and Sandra, who have a young son, Nathan. Todd accompanies Mace on a regularly done salvage run into the massive garbage heaps to see what they find for their meager town. During this excursion, Todd’s strength proves key in pulling in a fellow townsperson during one of the planet’s sudden and brief wind storms. He also helps Sandra prepare food and learns some gardening, which is this community’s main source of sustenance. From foraging for supplies to a bit of agrarian autarky, Todd’s life of official routine and tight supply lines of a rigorous military life and war campaigns are changed dramatically. He is able to finally relax from his training program and enjoy a bit of the bucolic life. However, this causes him to encounter another vacuum, one in which old war memories and night terrors quickly fill.

Todd resumes a training routine that mainly consists of swinging out stress into a punching bag. At one point, Todd is totally overcome by his mental flashes of war and accidentally nearly kills a fellow town resident. He is struggling to integrate into the new relaxed and cheerful lifestyle. This also happens when the townspeople celebrate Christmas, which for Todd is yet another contrast with strict military scheduling and routine. This version of Christmas seems to be free of the old dogmas, and instead focuses on a community meal, gift sharing, and some informal music and dance. With there being no retail on this garbage planet, the implication is that gifts are custom-made handcrafts from the materials that are regularly found foraging. Thus, we have agrarian autarky and a non-commercialized community-based, not traditional family-based, version of Christmas… this is looking all quite good. Though, Todd can’t seem to take it in, yet at least. He slips out unnoticed and observes the townsfolk from a skylight, giving him a guardian angel-like appearance. The skylight will come back into play later.

Earlier, when gardening with Sandra, a snake appeared amidst the plant rows and Sandra immediately beheaded it with her spade. It’s only a small interpretive stretch in seeing this brief moment as a sly ridicule of the Judaic Garden of Eden encounter with the snake: here the woman acts out of knowledge not ignorance and there is no exclusive domain of a creator deity, rather a sublimation of nature and human living. Sandra killed the snake since it’s a known poisonous species and an earlier attack from one has left her son, Nathan, mute and timid. A second snake appears later one morning soon after the Christmas party. This time, it’s inside the house and seemingly poised to attack Nathan. Todd having learned the danger of the snake, passes Nathan one of his army boots and demonstrates with the other how to stomp it. The boy is frozen in fear and the snake springs up at him with Todd catching it. He then throws it back to the ground and motions again for Nathan to stomp it with the boot, however Mace comes in at this point and kills it himself. Both Mace and Sandra are shocked at what Todd tried to do and have him voted out of the community for failing to integrate.

Todd sets out along a similar path that initially led him to the town. He makes camp and sits alone experiencing tears for the first time, which surprises him. He has learned enough about compassion to know what it’s like when the compassion is gone, he has understood, at least in part, that mental vacuum which had briefly stumped his gaze earlier on the battlefield when he saw the young girl.

Next morning, back in the town, as Mace and Sandra sleep, a third snake appears. It slithers up onto their bed, however it’s pulled back and stomped by Nathan using one of his father’s boots. Mace and Sandra and shocked again and realize that Todd, for all of his social awkwardness, was actually the first person to ever inspire Nathan since the boy suffered a snakebite and it directly led to Nathan overcoming of what must have been one of the main factors of his timidity. Mace succinctly admits, “we voted wrong” suggesting the folly of mass-opinion based decision making. He heads out to find Todd knowing that he must have stayed closed to the road and safety wire for the wind storms.^

The Reluctant Hero
Mace finds Todd at his make shift camp site and essentially repeats to Todd what he told Sandra, but just then a large vessel passes overheard. Not the trash dumpers that appeared before, but Mekum’s unit ready to perform their so called “security sweep.” As Todd and Mace run back to the village, one of the vehicles, driven by Caine, spots them and fires fatally wounding Mace. Todd manages to hide them both as Caine’s unit of golems passes by heading to what can only be the village. Mace uses his last gasps to plead for Todd to go help the villagers.

Inside the vessel that landed, Church and Mekum are informed that two targets were killed and that the deployed unit has spotted the village. Church, holding the rank of captain, asserts that if there’s civilians they must be protected. But, Mekum asserts that the planet is officially barren, thus no one should be here in the first place and so anyone encountered can be killed off, which is an argument closely echoes Israel’s attitudes to the West Bank & Gaza. In fact, the operation on the planet that Mekum is conducting resembles the Zionist notion of “mowing the lawn” – a regular live fire test of IDF equipment on civilians in Gaza, the herder trimming his herd.

The battle starts well for the new golem super soldiers as they unload a barrage of high end firepower on the comparatively poorly armed villagers.The initial battle consists of mini-guns, flamethrowers, rocket artillery, and assault rifles going against pistols and small rifles. However, then they get the one thing they aren’t truly prepared for: capable resistance.

Todd jumps down through a skylight, the opposite direction of how he had left the Christmas party earlier, and takes out the flamethrower wielding soldier. This connection the earlier scene, as well as the framing of the shot as Todd jumps down through the glass with his coat fanning out, gives him a warrior angel appearance. The Christmas decorations are also visible in this scene, thus all in all, Todd’s fight is shown to be beyond mere materialist interpretation. Todd unleashes a vicious maelstrom of violence against the attackers, however it’s key to note that it’s preventative violence – Todd only kills those who harm the innocent.

Mekum’s soldiers show virtually no squad tactics during battle. They walk around like FPS game enemies with poor AI, albeit formidable armament. When weapons jam, they seem to be at loss when it comes to getting to cover to unjam the weapon. Aiming seems to be all well on the training course, but in battle there’s little to none. Suspecting ambushes is also beyond these golems. While all these points may be a criticism against the movie in that is seems to provide bland bad guys, there is actually a point being made: perfection in the lab far from perfection in practical use. An analogous example would be body building – demanding a precise gym routine – vs. training for a pentathlon – demanding both gym and outdoors training. Body builders may be packing muscle, however their sculpted imaged is going on borrowed time and eventually the flab catches up with them after most of them stop their finely tuned indoor routine and retire. On the otherhand, endurance athletes, such a pentathlon competitors, build up a much healthier muscle mass and metabolism, the latter being key, thus their body can handle changes in training routine. Ergo: golem super soldiers are the body builders, Todd is the pentathlon athlete. Transhumanism is literally “body building” in a lab not the gym. And while Todd may be the product of eugenics, at least he attained his condition – mentally and physically – thus, despite his weaknesses and the fact that he had no way to develop his own aptitudes, he will always be more capable in a fluid situation.

A blunt example of this is the first time Todd sees the oncoming wind gust right after he arrives on the junk planet. He grabs ahold of a pole, turns his head and shuts his eyes until the wind passes. During the final battle, the golems hear and see the oncoming windstorm, but they hesitate and stare until it’s too late. The wind sweeps them up and away. For all of their transhumanist design and “perfection” the subtleties of the human intuition cannot be recreated in a lab. They simply must be allowed to grow like crops under the sun.

The only exception to this golem idiocy is Caine 607, the super soldier whose eye Todd ripped out earlier. Caine is the leader in the field of the golem soldiers and he appears to be much more intuitive than the others. On a story level, Todd’s fight with Caine provides a nice character arc as he overcomes his previous defeat. During the first fight in the hangar, Todd had tried and failed to break Caine’s neck, however now Todd manages to finish Caine off in just that way. However, the start of this final duel is even more telling about Todd’s transformation. Previously, and throughout the entire movie, Todd’s dialog was just laconic responses to questions. When Mace apologized to Todd for his expulsion, Todd didn’t say anything, since he wasn’t asked anything. He simply didn’t know how to respond. He didn’t even give a nod. However, right before the duel with Caine, as Todd is leading the villagers out of their destroyed home, he’s also carrying Nathan, which is another new display of compassion from him, but in those moments Todd senses that there’s still another enemy to fight nearby and that it must be Caine. Right here, Todd utters his first bit of dialog that’s on his own initiative. He says, “take him” to Sandra as he hands her Nathan. Thus, his first bit of self-willed speech is paired with an act of compassion for a child.

‏Todd is breaking out of his previous programming. In this final fight scene Todd is also tired from his just previous battle, so how does he win? Previously, right before the hangar fight, Captain Church had asked, “What about spirit?” Referring to a soldier’s morale. In that scene Todd lost since he was merely following orders, there was no greater purpose just obedience, however now Todd has realized a greater purpose to being a soldier.

‏A quote from the trailer conveys this as well, “For this soldier, it may be too late to feel human, but it’s never too late to be a hero.” Todd becomes the Reluctant Hero.

This is more in line with the ideals of militarism as described by Plato in The Republic than the typically satirical version we usually get shown in the current climate that’s dominated by politically correct pacifists on the left and orcish brutes on the right, even if the latter does use (read: misuse) militarist symbolism. Liberalism fails in that it asserts that power itself corrupts, whereas Plato offered the more poignant observation that it’s desire for power that corrupts. Todd rises to a position of power in the film, not because be wants to. No, he rises to it, because he feels compelled to take on a responsibility. It’s Mekum who merely want to show off his power. He doesn’t even seem to have a sure sense purpose in the scene when he outlines the “security sweep.” Mekum even hesitates in answering some rather basic questions about the operation that are asked by Captain Church, meaning he’s now only considering them, because he’s was never concerned with a well execute military operation, just a show of power.^

Old Order Destruction
Mekum, seeing that his men have been defeated, orders the deployment of a “planet buster” bomb to cover tracks of his failure to deal with the “significant military presence” as he puts it. He must have some really bad intel on the situation and appears as combat situation aware from his command position as his golems on the battlefield. The planet buster scenario seems much like Israel’s Samson Option, which aims to destroy every European capital city in Israel’s missile range should the world order go against their favor.

Church insists that at least the support unit, Todd’s former comrades, which has been relegated to logistics duties, should be able to get back to the ship before the planet is destroyed. Mekum then kills Church over this being concerned with only his own skin. This brief confrontation caused enough delay for the unit to return, now with Todd whom they instantly recognized as a former comrade, and they promptly throw Mekum off the ship. The villager refugees board as well and the ship takes off leaving Mekum with his “Samson Option” and all the hell fire it brings.

The planet is destroyed and Todd, now reunited with his former comrades, leads the refugees to the Trinity Moons. This was their original destination, however that had crashed onto the junk planet. Thus, Todd’s personal journey is effectively now paired with theirs. The final image is Todd holding Nathan, again, and showing him the direction of the Trinity Moons.^

Other Details
There are some direct Soviet references in the film. First, the American Forces/Fuerzas Americanas logo contains a large red star. Second, the assault rifle Todd fights with in the montage scene of various battles and in his flashbacks uses an AK-47 magazine. Third, the large vehicles that Mekum’s soldiers deploy with are armed with machine guns that are US Army Browning machine guns that have been refitted to look like Soviet made DShk machine guns to go along with the symbolism in the film. Fourth, during the final fight Caine picks up a sickle to kill Todd. The way this plays out is that Todd seems to have bluffed Caine into picking up, as it is in that moment that Todd gets the final upper hand and wins the duel. Communism, it’s a literal dead end.

There is religious symbolism in the film, too, albeit a non-traditionalist interpretation. First, Captain Church says that the civilians should be helped, asks “what about spirit?” in the hangar fight scene. He is ultimately a flawed character with some redeemable features that ends up being killed by the character associated with Judaic and Communist symbolism. Second, Christmas is celebrated in a folkish way and as previously mentioned this ties in with Todd’s guardian angel symbolism. Third, character who oversaw the voting out of Todd is also seen to hurry the village children along to school in another scene, thus she seems to be linked with a conservative traditionalism. She also says, “God help us” as the golem soldiers show up and start firing on the village and she’s the first to be killed. Like Communism, traditionalism, too, reaches a dead end. Fourth, there’s a quick shot of a cross grave marker impaling a golem super soldier when their unit is caught in the windstorm. This is right after Todd ambushed the unit with a improvised explosive set up. According to Adolf Hitler, “God helps only those who are prepared and determined to help themselves” and Todd is definitely prepared and determined, while his enemies are only the latter.

‏The soldiers in Todd’s first unit shows some emotions, albeit repressed, with emotional flinches in stressful situations. This most apparent when they are told that they don’t have to salute any more, since they aren’t considered real soldiers anymore. This is strongly indicative that they personally attached some level of idealism to their military service, despite being trained not to. The golem soldiers show none of this and are even shown to fight with masks, further diluting their identity. Caine wears no combat mask/helmet combination, but he is still expressionless aside from pain flinches.

Finally, there is some of the obligatory “evil Nazi” notions, though they’re remarkably limited considering the extent of the thematically linked Soviet, Zionist, and Owellian symbolism. The American Forces/Fuerzas Americanas emblem also has a lightning bolt with two bends, giving it the appearance of a double extended Sig rune. Todd’s early cadet rank insignia is a single lighting bolt/Sig rune visible as the camera pans down from his face to his name patch in the scene where the dogs kill the caged boar.^

Hidden History: The Diamond as Big as the Ritz

In 1922, American author F. Scott Fitzgerald published a scathing indictment of the brutal and overlooked history of the United States in the form of a short story called, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz. He was so exacting in his pointing out the underlying hypocrisy of his home country that he alluded to real historical events and he used some very telling names for the characters and places within the story; names that directly refer to American history, the hidden forces behind imperialism in the World, and the parts of each that many people would like to forget or have been prevented from learning about them by establishment whitewashing and official court history.

The story is notable for having a certain timelessness to it, as it doesn’t feel all that dated in many of its descriptions. It can very easily be imagined in our current world despite that much has changed since its initial publication.

The Town – Hades
The story opens in the fictional Mississippi River town whose ironic name seems to satirize the American Dream and the tradition of small town life that’s implied to be there. John T. Unger, the principal protagonist, comes from a successful and well known family in the town and he is ready to head out to a top tier private school to further his education. The privilege of this is underscored by his bringing many linen suits and electric fans, the latter of which were quite new at the time of the story’s publication. However, a more interesting detail is an “asbestos pocket-book stuffed with money” given to John by his father. Like the town, which is described as being too small to hold the talented John, the pocket-book seems to be too small to hold all that money.

The themes presented here of social and technological privilege, and protecting wealth from fire by self-destructive methods (asbestos is fireproof but toxic) to keep up the facade of a quiet and comfortable life are amplified to a monumental level in the story’s main section.

The School – St. Midas
The school that John goes to attend is also has a telling name, one that implies what people wish to get out of their education: fast wealth. As with his home town’s name, the school that John attends also draws its name from an Ancient Greek myth, one in which a king wished to be able to turn things into gold by simply touching them. He soon became overwhelmingly wealthy, but the downside was that he lost the ability to closely interact with anyone, as even a handshake or hug would turn a person into gold. It’s an apt symbol for the relentless pursuit of monetary wealth that “the roaring ‘Twenties” were all about and this is the decade from which the story hails.

John’s classmates in the school are said to come from “money kings,” which is both a reference to the Midas myth and to their status in society. Today, the latter element is something akin to a trust fund baby – someone born into wealth and given everything they need, which allows for a comfortable life, yet is strikingly unjust within the greater context of society as their money, which is not even earned, allows for a disproportionate use of power on those who do not possess such amounts within the same society.

One of these money king kids that John meets is Percy Washington, who invites John to spend a summer at his family’s estate. John has no idea what he is in for, and it will rock him to his very core.

The Estate – El Dorado
John and Percy take a long train ride West to get to the Washington estate. The sentence as they finally near its borders is telling of what’s to come: “The Montana sunset lay between two mountains like a gigantic bruise from which dark arteries spread themselves over a poisoned sky.” This is an inversion of historical sun symbolism that typically presents the sun as a life giver, but here it’s toxic. Also, the land around the estate seems ready to swallow it up to prevent the sun from shining. But this is not yet the estate, it’s only a transit station in a village called, Fish, where twelve men, who are described as “a race apart,” work to keep it going. They seem totally ignorant of the world beyond their small home, much like a fish in a tank. And like those fish, the people here are seen as a lower form of life. They also speak what “seemed to be an extreme form of the Southern negro’s dialect” which foreshadows what the coming estate is all about.

Percy takes John to a buggy which they take to a car that specifically kept out of sight from men at Fish. The car is insanely luxurious with jewels and silk tapestries on the inside, but Percy says, “it’s just an old junk.” And John, as the reader, is becoming increasingly aware, on some level, just what this estate may hold.

After a long ride along a road where not even the moon shines – moonlight, after all, is reflected sunlight – they arrive at the massive estate that’s “the only five square miles of land in the country that’s never been surveyed.” According to Percy’s father, Braddock Washington, his estate is not even in the United States, it’s his own domain. He used his immense wealth and carefully worked out political connections to corrupt the department of the State that was to survey the area, he worked to produce fake maps, and even set up an artificial magnetic field to lure compasses away from the estate grounds. Even more, Washington has had a river deflected, a fake village (other than Fish) put up, and even set up anti-aircraft guns to shoot down aircraft passing overhead. And some have been shot down with survivors taken prisoner, locked up in cages, and, for appeasement some of their families have also kidnapped and brought to them.

The name of the estate isn’t given away so quickly in the text, though it’s a fitting name as the legendary El Dorado is a mirror of the Washington family estate. It’s a place of immense wealth that was sought out by any means necessary, is now protected by any means necessary, but ultimately proves to be little more than an effective illusion. Looking at it another way, it’s The Matrix version 0.02.

The Events – Build Up
John is quickly drawn into a paralyzing awe by the Washington estate. He is barely able to recall his first dinner there, remembering only waking up in a lavish bed. This is no ordinary bed, however, as it tilts sliding John into a posh bathroom where water shoots from decorated shower heads and an ever present servant is there to dry him. These surreal scenes have the protagonist in what seems to be a drugged state of mind. He is unable to remember anything and he doesn’t move by his own will. The button to activate the mechanism that slides the bed occupant into the tub is pressed by a servant. The shower bath is prepared in advance by a servant. In fact, everything on this estate except eating and leisure activities are done by servants or, better termed, slaves.

This is a strong and dark ironic theme, with the masters not having any real control over the activities on their own estate, as they only have control over the proxies who actually carry out the essential tasks. Put another way: the master controls only the slaves, thereby doesn’t really control his or her own state of affairs. Should the slaves revolt or the chain of authority break down, the entire structure is susceptible to crumble.

The Washington estate has been managed to keep the slaves living there and in its satellite territories, such as the town of Fish, ignorant of the changes in the US since the end of the Civil War. Braddock Washington even got his own slaves to vote on their fate and they voted to stay in his domain with his absolute rule. Here we have another dark irony and a brutal jab at American democracy. Washington is clever, though, he doesn’t whip his slaves and call them subhuman or goyim, but he did build them a nice marble dormitory building, which is probably a fairly comfortable place. However, this benefit was given as part of the upkeep for the whole illusion. Washington gives perks and generous gifts to his slaves, and for all practical purposes they have everything they need and could ever want, yet unbeknownst to these slaves, this is all to keep their will docile. This story predates Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World by a decade, yet is very efficiently describes in a few pages the same kind of manufactured complacency by a secretive power clique.

Braddock Washington is described as a Virginian who’s directly descended from George Washington, the First President of the United States, who was also a Freemason and land speculator. Braddock fits his ancestor’s secret society and land speculation tendencies. George Washington relied on slave labor to build and maintain his estate as did Braddock Washington for his own in the story. The latter is not explicitly mentioned to belong to the Freemasons or any other formal secret society, however his numerous shadowy financial and political maneuvers to inflate his wealth and profit from wars and, above all, the secret of the massive diamond that he finds, certainly point to secrecy on a large and organized scale with many people involved with Braddock Washington calling all the shots. He is effectively the head, not just a member, of his own secret society.

Washington’s most manipulative move is what he does with his slaves – they are deliberately kept ignorant of the changes that happened in the US after the conclusion of the Civil War and not only did they vote to stay in their bondage, but they now are blinded by the dogmatic delusion that Braddock Washington ought to be worshipped, which mirrors Washington’s own dogmatic delusion toward material wealth that he effectively worships. Braddock Washington had even killed his older brother, with whom he initially wanted to co-run the secretive finance empire, when the latter’s habit of drinking too often led to an “indiscreet stupor.” The prisoners being kept in the cages are in a pit that is near the estate’s massive golf course, and this pit is likened to a golf course hazard, the only hazard on the course as the rest of it is fairway, or the easiest part of any golf course. Braddock Washington’s life is unrealistically easy, there are no obstacles for him and therefore there is no struggle and no true fruits of labor. He has figured out how to cheat the system and now lives off that.

His excuse for keeping slaves, prisoners, and all of his shady deals that have resulted in wars are explained in one line by him, “cruelty doesn’t exist where self-preservation is involved.

In a strange way, this is also manifested in how Braddock Washington acts towards his own children: he has given them an apparently infinite supply of liberties. Even when his own daughter pushed him down the stairs, he just limped away. Now, contrast these limitless liberties to the micromanaged liberties that he grants others whom are his prisoners and slaves. It is only a small connection to make that Braddock views his clan as “the Chosen” who deserves all material gain and no struggle, whereas others deserve, by their outside birth, all the struggle and only stingily allotted meager fruits from it.

That said, Washington had made it clear when killing his brother earlier that his granting of liberties may be great, but there is a condition: do not betray the family secret and wealth. This, in turn, goes back to his idea about self-preservation, which is material wealth preservation, since Braddock Washington views himself and his family as being one with that furtive wealth with all other peoples being subordinated into keeping that secret arrangement.

His need for more skilled labor in the massive and demanding undertaking that is the maintenance of the El Dorado estate included the kidnapping of a designer, an architect and a gardener. However, these men went mad as the absurdity of the estate was not to bear for too long having been regular citizens before their seizure. And so we can see that ignorance is a key trait of any slave that is to last in their bondage, for they cannot be allowed to see the full picture of it. Previous guests, like John T. Unger now, were murdered so that they do not spill the secret of the estate. It seems Braddock Washington felt that a quick whisking away is better than offering these guests prisoner status as anyone whom he views as being socially near or perhaps even parallel to him, hence being invited as guest, cannot be imagined as a prisoner by Braddock Washington. Such an association would make him most uncomfortable.

The Events – El Dorado Apocalypse
Braddock Washington’s carefully draped veil, over his family’s and their subjects eyes and his own as well, is violently lifted when the steady build up of deception boils over.

One night, John, whose suspicions about the El Dorado estate have grown greatly, notices a figure in his bedroom. Having been just told the story of previous guests being murdered, he acts quickly by pulling the lever and sliding down into the bathtub as before. However, now this action performed by his own will and this means that John has gone from thinking to doing, which is a key moment in any revolution, be it national or personal. This moment proves symbolic as soon airplanes appear over the estate and start drop bombs while the anti-air cannons fire back in an increasingly destructive warzone. Previously, one prisoner had not only escaped, but also successfully evaded the assassins that Washington had sent after him. The attack is most likely this former prisoner’s operation.

In his escape, John meets up with Washington’s daughters, Jasmine and Kismine. This grouping of youth fits with the symbolic conclusion of the story. The girls had been aware, on some level, of the absurdities of their father’s estate, yet were too complacent and ignorant to act, which mirrors the status of the slaves. This is most likely from the fact that the were born into the situation, while John is the outsider. Recall that previous outsiders, who were not killed, had gone mad when staying too long at the estate. John was set to be killed, though evaded fate with his wits, and now proves to be quite charismatic in his small position of leadership as he starts to pull the girls out of their trance of submission. For example, Jasmine is shocked to see the slaves’ marble dormitory erupt in a massive explosion and her main concern is the loss of fifty thousand dollars worth of slaves, yet at the same time she’s ready to leave the estate, thus start a new life; she is steadily swaying in the right direction.

The attack ends with the estate in ruins and several planes downed, with others still circling and looking for any targets. Soon “the dark and glittering reign of the Washingtons would be over” referring to the union of cheated wealth and clan power that made up the Washington family’s absolute power and identity.

Here, Braddock Washington does his most telling action: he offers a bribe to God. He begins by offering a part of his wealth, but with no answer he ends up upping and upping his offer until he basically offers to start his own religion that would praise this god, offer any idol to him, and slay for him any victim. Braddock Washington offers to do anything, make anything, kill any living thing in praise of this god for as long as this god pleases, so as long as he can have his wealth back. In an odd way, Braddock Washington finally thinks of a plan to direct his wealth and resources towards a higher purpose, because this particular higher purpose allows him to stay close to his only true love: the diamond as big as the Ritz. When no answer comes after all that ranting and bargaining and futile deal making that included cathedrals, pyramids, and the painfully spoken wish to just return things to the way they were before the attack, Braddock Washington with his son, wife, and two remaining slaves, enter the mountain that contains the massive diamond. Deep underground a massive explosion causes the mountain – the symbolic Tabernacle of the Washington clan and their god – to combust from within taking the Washingtons with it. Fittingly they go in the direction of Hell.

John, Jasmine, and Kismine stand alone in what remains of the estate. Kismine has some rhinestones with her, the small band’s only source of wealth now and it’s appropriately different than diamonds, as the girls are breaking away from their old life. John suggests that they start a new life in Hades, which is John’s old hometown, but the reference to the Ancient Greek Underworld is the suggestion of the start of a truly new life.

The Implications
The unspoken back story here is that the expansion of Western Civilization on the American Continent came at the price of millions of lives. Both lives destroyed by expansionist war and lives destroyed by being thrust into slavery. The United States, as it exists today, a country founded by Freemasons, essentially carried the torch of British Imperialism for most of its history. First, on its own territory and now, after the waning of Western European Power, it does so on the world stage. This is not the will of the American people, but rather the will of its leadership and a powerful statement about the need for a different form of leadership selection where different people rise to the top.

The Original Evil Empire

Britain never hid the fact that its empire expanded undemocratically, despite Britain itself endorsing democracy and parliamentary leadership. However, the US proclaims to have been democratic from its inception as an independent state, yet its own building of empire was decidedly not. The kicker is that democracy is not even a good system of government, but an effective cover for imperialism, since democracy looks so nice on paper. It allowed the post-British American governments (democratic and parliamentary US and Canada) to kill millions of people on their own land, and then point to the words on the Freemasonic Constitution to calm down anyone who got a bit too outraged.

Note that in the story, Braddock Washington used the sham of democracy to guarantee his absolute power and is now able to point to his subjects’ consent with their situation. Additionally, the El Dorado estate, a piece of land shrouded in secrecy and strategic ambiguities, a place that seeks to be out of the jurisdiction all others are subject to yet wants to the perks of being a full member, and a domain built on a now easily disprovable mythos and well proven swindle is entirely reflective of the Zionist State in Palestine, Israel. This is another state that advocates democracy for all, yet in practice doesn’t function with it itself, thus exploits democracy as a deliberate illusion.

Zionist icon smeared in blood on destroyed Palestinian home.

Braddock Washington cursed his god, because he thought that he had an understanding with that god. He thought he was special, better than the rest, “chosen” by a higher power to preside and exploit the “goyim” with his ornate and convoluted dogmas.

“For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.” ~Deuteronomy 7:6 in the Tanakh, Jewish Holy Book.

In that moment and from his point of view, Braddock Washington feels genuinely betrayed as his previous status quo seemed so fixed and lasted for so long, it is only natural that he had started to see his own situation through the very dogmas, that is unchecked and unverified information, that he fed his slaves. He started to believe his own lies, because they had served his purpose so well. He had become complacent due to massive success via corrupt methods that an end to this paradigm to this was terrifying for him.

In the American South, former slave owners felt much the same after the abolishment of slavery, in which their upper caste now retained much of its ill gotten financial gains and property, but did not possess in its control the system that had been used to build them. This resentment led to groups like the KKK being formed. Later, Jews felt much the same after losing their monstrously privileged positions in a non-corrupt and non-democratic Germany. They felt angry and their god, YHWH, the demiurge of all Aryan religions, but knew that they could only go so far with a force perceived to be so powerful.

The Jewish attitude aptly described by a Jew

Thus, scribbling on walls and conversion to atheism was the extent of their fury at their god. The physically manifested fury, via lobbying action and laws passed by coercive pressure, was directed at National Socialism, the most uniting anti-Judaic ideology of all time, and the man who made it happen, Adolf Hitler. Though, Germany and Europe by extension were domiciled to goy status, while the many non-Europeans who joined the NS cause were just kept out of the light for as long as possible in order to show NS as uniquely European, or uniquely German, to make it divisive and not uniting as Hitler had originally labored to do. In fact, the perception of the Third Reich has changed greatly over time, but each time, no matter who it officially shames, it benefits Zionism.

After all, the Nazis first made human fat soap, but then it was just found out to be a lie – propagated by Nazis to mentally torture Jews. Will they do the same with gas chambers?

These tricks of Zionism with historiography are only possible via a network. Just as Braddock Washington had agents working for him and corrupt parties doing his bidding for a price to shroud the true extent of his wealth and power, so does the Zionist lobby with agents such as the ADL and corrupt parties such as pastor John Hagee, to name but one from each category.

External Link: The Zionist Correct List

Zionism aims to confuse the present by supporting both sides of the false left/right dichotomy, as well as presenting conflicting Holocaust claims as long as Jews are victims. And to hyper-organize the past where the Jews have always been victims: humanists pity this, racists (including Jews themselves) like this, but BOTH sides agree on the big picture. Braddock Washington confuses the present by giving only his own controlled view of the world, and he even bluffed about supporting his slaves freedom by letting them vote themselves back into slavery. And, with this, he has hyper-organized the past with some Orwellian doublethink: he’s both slave keeper and emancipator!

The Aryanist Viewpoint
By the end of the story’s events, John, Kismine, and Jasmine decide to return go to John hometown of Hades. This signifies the death of their current life and the birth of a new life. Thus, we have a certain twist: Hades is not a dark, hellish place, rather it’s a new beginning, or the gate to one at the very least. In Aryanist terms, the youths of the story set themselves on a path to rediscover their Original Nobility. Another aspect is that they seem to be ready to accept a life with certain limits, that is, not the unlimited liberty that they had at El Dorado at the expense of hundreds of slaves. They are prepared to accept a more humble life of which everyday work and productivity is a part.

“A very large measure of individual liberty is not necessarily the sign of a high degree of civilization. On the contrary, it is the limitation of this liberty, within the framework of an organization which incorporates men of the same race, which is the real pointer to the degree of civilization attained.” ~Adolf Hitler, Table Talk

The old civilization model of hunting and gathering is an example of total liberty, where a tribe forages their surrounding natural environment. This encourages strict in-group altruism and out-group indifference, but more frequently out-group hostility, as any other tribe is capable of taking desired resources. The result is an endless scramble competition between tribes. The pattern is near perfectly transposed to the free-market capitalist economy, making it a slicker and cooler version of hunting and gathering, with the scramble competition target now being fiat currency accumulation as opposed to that of raw resources.

What Hitler was proposing in the above quote, namely “the framework of an organization” is reflective of the farming lifestyle. Indeed, a farmer’s liberties may be limited compared to the free roaming and foraging of a hunter/gatherer, however who accomplishes more? A farming-based lifestyle leads to tool creation and refinement, which leads to guilds and skilled craftsmen, and so on and so forth. A hunting-based lifestyle may lead to these as well, but it has a different view on violence, and this is the key difference. “Violence” is not just physical harm, but violation of consent. Hunted animals are not just violated with the arrows or bullets that tear into them, but with the onset of being chased to be killed. Hunting is violent by its very nature and demands violence to be productive. Farming seeks to limit violence as much as possible. While hunters would compete for hunting grounds, such a thing is unheard for farmers, as only one can farm a given field, thus negotiation and “the framework of an organization” are encouraged at every step as opposed to competition elimination, or more violence. That is not to say that a farming lifestyle should be set on totally avoiding violence, rather it should engage in preventative or retaliatory violence.

“The Aryan attitude towards violence is founded on the principle of “ahimsa,” which prohibits initiated violence, but demands retaliatory violence against the violence initiated by others. In other words, “ahimsa” is not passive non-violence in the sense of doing nothing while violence occurs, but rather active anti-violence in the sense of doing whatever is necessary to stop the violence as quickly as possible. This attitude is a necessary consequence of universal compassion. We consider those (e.g. Jains) who refrain from even retaliatory violence to be less compassionate than ourselves.”

External Link: Violence

The text along the bottom of the Prateek Chihna translates to “All life is bound together by mutual support and interdependence,” which well and good for Aryanism. Albeit, Jainism has a fatal flaw that causes its defeat: “Ahimsa,” the text within the hand, is interpreted as “non-injury” or “compassion,” the latter of which sounds especially good for Aryanism, however it demands action that Jains do not take. And that is active anti-violence, or retaliatory violence to stop initiated violence. National Socialism incorporated this aspect into its agrarian Blood and Soil policy with the Wehrbauer, or “Soldier Peasant,” principle: each male citizen needs to meet the state standard of military and weapons training and thus be able to own and operate at least one weapon of their choice on their land for defense. Female citizens are not mandated to receive military training, but may do so if they wish.

To come full circle back to the Fitzgerald story and its background theme of imperialism and colonialism that subjugated the American continent, the Wehrbauer principal would have given the Indigenous Americans a solid conceptual defense against the theft of their land and resources. Concepts can evolve to strategies and can serve as ideological rallying points for much needed unity within divided population.

Farming, as a model for civilization, means cultivating one’s own wealth from one’s own resources and cooperating with one’s folk to produce as much as is needed. This encourages a social development trajectory that successfully avoids the banking/debt trap in which material wealth itself becomes a tool for creating more material wealth and productive labor slowly withers. The Braddock estate of El Dorado is the American Dixie model of civilization that depends on slavery, deceit, and all sorts of negative things to keep itself going.

National Socialism was born out of a world of excess and corruption when it successfully toppled the German Weimar Republic. The initial years of Hitler’s government were so groundbreaking and successful, because the NSDAP, in effect, took a step back with the goal of course correction with an eye on the future. Hence, the brief resumed use the German Empire flag, some corresponding institutions, and the permanently intended return to autocracy. From there, Hitler only expected the first true fruits of National Socialism to blossom some 25 to 50 later. And NS Germany is but one example. The American Indians, who are far from a monolithic group, too had their localized squabbles and foppery amongst the many tribes and groups that existed, and it was precisely this that led to their downfall as an independent civilization. A step back from their own excesses would have most behooved them, though it is impossible to blame them for their lack of foresight against European imperialism.

Hitler, however, was aware of European Imperialism and he even had an often overlooked example of the disaster of democracy: Poland-Lithuania. The country had previously been a monarchy that unfortunately steadily transitioned to democracy and in the 1790s fell to neighboring autocracies, though its wane had begun decades earlier due to political squabbling and a leadership vacuum. Note that the only time that Germany and Poland had any sort of pre-WW2 dialog it was between the autocracies of Adolf Hitler and Józef Piłsudski. The democracies of either state refused to even recognize each other due to internal pressures of ethno-nationalists and traditionalist identitarians, as well as due to devious meddling from outside powers that ever corruptible democracies and fractured societies are so susceptible to.

Conclusion
F. Scott Fitzgerald could not have drawn on European twentieth century history examples when writing Diamond as Big as the Ritz in the early 1920s, but he certainly drew on the American history mentioned. The 20th century patterns are applicable here, because as Mark Twain cleverly put: “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” Events echo the past and new mistakes are all too often reminiscent of the past. With the advent of globalist high finance during the Industrial Revolution, symbolized by Washington finding the diamond, a regime of banks and Rothschilds has come to call all the shots in the world. Just as Washington gave his slaves the “choice” of democracy so have the finance empires of today and the only choices of action that can be voted on a screened and filtered by them, and so like Washington’s slaves, we have seemingly no where to go, save into blissful ignorance.

Yet, there is hope that a courageous leader can rally enough citizen troops to overthrow the system. It has happened before in the heart of Europe, though unlike the successful plane attack on the Washington estate in the story, the strike against empire in our world didn’t quite bring it down. The empire was mortally wounded, but had time to recover and most of the world’s citizens continue to dwell under high finance. Repeating the past is folly, thus rather we should draw from it.

“People ask: is there someone fit to be our leader? Our task is not to search for that person. Either God will give him to us or he will not come. Our task is to shape the sword that he will need when he comes.” ~Adolf Hitler

The World of Half-Life: We’re All Palestinians

The world of Half-Life­ and indeed the surrounding universe, especially as developed in Half-Life 2, bears many strong resemblances to our real world. In the game, the background story in broad strokes is as follows. A top secret research facility in the US that is attempting to develop teleportation technology eventually discovers a new habitable environment, called Xen, on what may be another planet or an entirely new universe. Soon after, samples from this world are being analyzed using the latest technology and, during one particular experiment, a mysterious “G-Man” orders the head administrator of the research facility to use a certain high level setting for a risky experiment with a sample from Xen. This opens up a massive rift and hostile aliens pour into the facility.

By the time Half-Life 2 starts, the aliens have taken over Earth and have even secured some allies amongst humans. Conversely, many of the initially hostile aliens encountered in the first game are revealed to have been slaves or conscripts and have joined the human struggle against a common enemy: the Combine Empire. This powerful force has influence in many universes and has routinely incorporated native species into its biological engineering technology to have slaves well suited to each conquered environment, of which Earth is but one.

The majority of the plot in Half-Life 2 and its official extensions, HL2: Episode 1 and HL2: Episode 2, takes place in around the hub of Combine control on Earth, City 17. Taking a look around City 17 and certain places in our world, parallels instantly become clear.

City 17 = Gaza and West Bank
This parallel is right at the introduction of Half-Life 2 as the player enters City 17 on a train and is greeted with a tightly controlled checkpoint, much like the ones Israel has set up in the West Bank. Other parts of the city and the surrounding countryside areas that are not directly controlled by the Combine are routinely bombarded and raided as Gaza is by the IDF.

Combine = Zionism/Colonialism
The Combine conquer and enslave races, before engineering them to serve the Combine Empire’s own ends. This is known as the Herder Archetype Level 10,000. The Combine are an aggressive presence with a hostile and self-serving ideology that throws itself onto other sentient races and makes them into perfectly suited slaves. It is also an ideology whose adherents bio-engineer themselves as best as they can to get a biological and technical edge over all others.

Transhuman Soldier_Assembly_1

This is what they’ll do to the goys.

According to some sources, the image above has the word “castle,” though the styled font gives it a certain ambiguity and the word “caste” can clearly be drawn from this image. The soldier is a human conscript, a set of characters cut from the final game, that resembles the Zionist IDF in appearance. The conscripts would have been one step away from becoming transhuman Combine soldiers and Israel already seems to be on the way of seriously attempting this as previously mentioned.

External Links: [1], [2]

Additionally, the idea of a human caste that is merely conscripted to do whatever the upper caste wants quite reflective of the reality Palestinians face under Zionist occupation. And a statement of what Israel thinks of its military: no ideals of service just the blunting of the individual to conform to dogma both political and spiritual. The abuse then cycles from one generation to the next and finally spills outward into the lives of non-Jewish peoples via Zionist influence and thought policing. It’s identitarianism down to the core.

The IDF parallels do not stop with the mere appearance of the Conscripts. There is also information available on both Half-Life wikis about a cut vehicle that was to be used by the conscripts for terror raids in and around City 17. This was none other than the Israeli Merkava tank. In all likelihood, it was cut to avoid controversy and pressure from the ever present and imposing Zionist lobbies, however in the wiki and in the game’s source code there is a rather clear display of the intent with which the developers sought to portray the Combine and the real world parallels to them.

External Links: [1], [2], [3]

The use of drones as City Scanners and Manhacks is also indicative of Israel, which pioneered the use of drones for warfare and policing by the mid 1990s. Additionally, the mysterious and manipulative G-Man character is voiced by a Jewish actor, which seems to satire on Jewish attempts to assimilate with non-Jewish peoples, as the alien character takes human form, but displays awkward body language and stuttering human speech that jarringly contrast with his seemingly pristine and conservative human business attire.

Now, a parallel idea about the Combine Empire, or Universal Union.

Combine = Bolshevism
Colonialism, which was driven principally by the capitalist prospects of material gain, has a sister ideology in Bolshevism, which is a much more blunt imposition of caste supremacy with an elite political class hardly providing an illusion for its subjects.

City 17 is located in an unnamed Eastern European country. The architecture and industry greatly resembles the Bolshevik inspired Soviet-style of mass industrialization with little regard for the surrounding environment. Massive and expansive structures were built and have become decrepit with neglect, long and winding drainage canals have become stagnant with waste, and the surrounding habitable areas, urban and rural, have absorbed much of the ill effects radiating out of them.

A recurring foe in Half-Life 2 is the Hunter Chopper which was based on the Soviet Kamov Ka-27. The finished version in the game looks different with more alien technology fused onto it, however the resemblance remains and the design inspiration is clear.

External Links: [1], [2]

Other Soviet technology and references are present with varying degrees of subtlety throughout the game as well.

However, we couldn’t get to a game that features an oppressive empire without someone mentioning “the Nazis.” And sure enough, thanks to one patch on the Combine Overwatch Elite infantry unit’s uniform, as well as some conceptual artwork for Combine transhuman soldiers, the “Nazi ghost” peeped out. Though, in all likelihood, these interpretations were pushed by useful idiots or online Zionist trolls, as there is no direct reference to the Third Reich in Half-Life, but a great many of direct references to Zionism and Bolshevism.

The aforementioned Combine Overwatch Elite infantry wear a skull patch on their chest and on their left shoulder and this may very well, due to Godwin’s Law, be interpreted as belonging to the Third Reich’s SS. However that particular formation used the death’s head as a cap badge or a collar tab for some SS units, but not as a shoulder or general uniform patch. Thus, given Half-Life 2’s greater themes, the Combine Overwatch Elite’s skull is much more likely a reference to the Soviet Spetsnaz and related formations’ use of skull imagery.

Combine Overwatch Elite & Soviet Spetsnaz Patches

Next, the fact that some conceptual artwork shows Combine soldiers in grey trench coat uniforms is hardly a direct indication of the Third Reich, as Soviet officers wore trench coats too, and the wearing of grey trench coats in the German military goes back to before the First World War.

Additionally, the calling of the Combine Advisor’s the “master race” is a very sloppy description if the intention is to liken them the Aryan Race concept, as the Combine Advisors are wholly dependent on technology and lower slave castes to serve them. Hitler and the NSDAP’s use of the Aryan Master Race idea stressed autarky and self-reliance, which was best exemplified by the agrarian life style with the Master Race taking pride in that it doesn’t need slaves and, in fact, finds the concept of slavery repulsive.

External Links: [1], [2]

In fact, in the ideology of the Combine, there is a distinct lack the Third Reich’s ideological elements. For one, the key element of agrarianism to guarantee territorial autarky is missing. There is no corresponding element in the Combine’s activities as seen in the games. It’s all just occupation by blunt force trauma, forced industrialization, imposing technocracy, and steady crushing of the individual into a docile Homo Sovieticus subject with no willpower or ingenuity.

The similarity to the Combine makes sense.

And now for something positive!

Resistance!
There is a Civilian Resistance in and around City 17. It’s an aptly organized paramilitary force with a command structure, officers, and certain specialized soldiers, such as medics and mechanics. They have obtained a variety of weapons, both human and Combine made, and can be seen to aptly use them, which signifies training and an overall coordinated strategic approach. In the face of the massive tide that this small group faces, they are much like the Third Reich’s Werwolf or Volkssturm.

And guess what…?

…there’s even a Volkssturm mod for Half-Life 2 to be able to play the game this way! Given the professional looking military uniforms and even some ethnic variety, it may as well be the Half-Life 2 Waffen SS mod. A few tweaks here and there is all that’s needed. This blog calls on the creator of this mod to do just that.

Additionally, there is also a real world equivalent to the Civilian Resistance paramilitary movement and that’s Hezbollah.

Hezbollah has very persistently stood up to Zionism.
