But what do all the beauties of the past from totally different levels sotan culture mean to the man of today,when confronted with a living and unfathomable tribal god such as he has never experienced before?

But what a so-called Fuhrer does with a mass movement can plainly be seen if we turn our eyes to the north or south of our country. Wotan disappeared when his oaks fell and appeared again when the Christian God proved too weak to save Christendom from fratricidal slaughter.

Jung stated taken wtoan the link just below: Political events move from one impasse to the next, like a torrent caught in gullies, creeks and marshes.

Perhaps we may sum up this general phenomenon as Ergriffenheit — a state of being seized or possessed. No one with ears can misunderstand the shrill whistling of the storm-god in the nocturnal wood. He seemed as if he might be a double of a real person, and that Hitler the man might perhaps be hiding inside like an appendix, and deliberately so hiding in order not to disturb the mechanism.

Wotan confined himself to the berserkers, who found their vocation as the Blackshirts of mythical kings. Here was irony indeed. With all eternal tortures. Like a dammed river, its unleashing had the jhng to follow a course of ecstatic creative energy or destruction to the point of self-destruction.

Zarathustra, too, was a soothsayer, a magician, and the storm-wind. We thus lose sight of the most peculiar feature of this whole phenomenon, namely, the dramatic aspect of the Ergreifer and the Ergriffener. Apparently everyone had forgotten that Wotan isa Germanic datum of first importance, the truest expression and unsurpassed personification of a fundamental quality that is particularly characteristic of the Germans.

Like the philosopher Martin HeideggerJung was accused of trading on his professional associations during the 30s to maintain his status, and turning on his Jewish colleagues while they were purged. So the false ones part from the real ones — I reach into a nest of words And then give the good and just With my formula blessings and prosperity. Jung and the Temptations of Aryan Religion, p. Ninck rightly points out that Dionysus and the otherGreek gods always remained under the supreme authority of Zeus, which indicates a fundamental difference between the Greek and the Germanic temperament.

Jung continues with another prophetic vision among the Germans of the return of Wotan:.
