David Myatt, Reichsfolk, Esoteric Hitlerism, and Savitri Devi
Editorial Note by Reichsfolk. We present below an external link to a zip file of Myatt’s short-lived late 1990s “Folk Culture” website containing articles written between 1997 and 1999, and which early formulation was mainly a combination (a) of his idealistic, mystical 1990s National-Socialist writings, such as his The Theology of National-Socialism and parts of essays that would later be rewritten and included in the third (114yf) edition of his The Religion of National-Socialism with the term ‘folk culture’ replacing the term ‘national socialism’ and with most references to Hitler and the Third Reich removed, and (b) his ‘ethical National Socialism’ NS writings circulated by Reichsfolk again with the term ‘folk culture’ replacing the term ‘national socialism’ and with most references to Hitler and the Third Reich removed.
Folk Culture was based on Myatt’s concept of a ‘Cosmic Being’, of ‘the folk’ as a living and evolving manifestation of that Being, and of ‘the folk’ having a Nature-given duty to preserve its distinctiveness.
In effect, his Folk Culture seemed to be a short-lived tactic to “sell” his ‘ethical National Socialism’ – his evolution of National Socialism – to a new audience.
One caveat: Some of the writings in the zip file often annoyingly and unnecessarily contain a paragraph or more in bold or italic typeface.
