THE European SPIRIT
 
All we are children of a same continent, heirs of a common history of the spirit that up to now has fought for the plasmación of the idea of the man, even in its higher demonstrations.  Therefore the History developed in West done not try to reach another end. that that of carrying out in last extreme this idea of the man and especially that of the European man, whose essence takes root in spite of all its evolutions and diverse forms of expression in an and identical ethnic root, in an and identical law of life and in a common ordering of the spiritual values.  In all the decisive epochs of the European events the original force of the genius arises constantly, called to assure this common destiny of Europe and to give him form.  The spiritual revolutions of Europe have tried always to cover this órbita western and, as have not been capable to achieve it, its titánica fights was translated in romanticism and music, in fragments of the infinite pain and solemnity of the life, as is found especially in Hölderlin, Beethoven and Nietzsche.  
 
The European unit, that is not in itself an artificial neither abstract creation, but an all alive determined in the first term by an aspiration of town (“völkisch”) and by the affinity of the same myth of character indoario, rarely went up to now objective of the politics.  This politics has destroyed with too much frequency the unit of the historic life European and the European complex of destiny, that only by some authentically was felt and announced, so that today we can speak of a sad history of the European unit, constantly dissociated and adulterated.  
 
The traditional political conscience of the plasmación of the power depended in general of strange princes or you determined superficially that they were exhausted in the composition of the sphere of the State, assured only by the violence.  Even in the periods in which the western thought tended elementary creations the conscience of the unit of Europe continued depending predominantly of political state concepts.  Also in it was of the first vast foundations of States and above all of the kingdom of the Frank were suffocated for the aspiration to traditional principles of sovereignty the authentic forces that should cause to arise an Europe strong, heroic and laborer because such principles did not correspond to the vital unit of Europe, imposed by the blood.  In short, in the History of the European conscience little track of the power of a decisive one is found to arise of spontaneous vitality and exactly in the greater enthusiasts and visionarios political, as Napoleon, the European unit went in the fund only a function of state to be able that there was to be decayed because lacked the vision of the dynamic causality of the world.  
 
The European evolution is poor in the revolutionary forms that the same life requires, in the great historic direction owed al done that the space in which lives Europe it shows the same primitive cause in all its transformations: to know the conception indogermánica of the world, the knowledge of the European world as home of a humanity shaken by a destiny that, different in its regional structure, in its expressionThe form of its mentality, is submitted in last term to a common mission that should accept and should comply.  
 
Exactly against this intuition of the unit of Europe have acted during centuries those powers that are considered chosen to represent and to defend the human civilization.  It is the western wall of Europe, that, supported in an apparent theory of apostolado, has impeded so frequently the to awake of Europe.  It is the system of the forward formation against the control of the continent by itself same and against those vital forces that give coherence al European spirit and do it capable to govern the history.  The express concept democracy this hostility against the tragic self-determination of Europe, that only ours present, arisen of a revolution, has determined to proclaim.  In the aspiration to assure this front against Europe has been exhausted the mission of the Anglo-saxon humanity.  
 
Also the West of Europe lit an idea of the European spirit but lacked exactly what did it viable: lacked exactly of the pathos of the to be living, the respect to the powers that cannot be conceived rational or mechanically, that we call towns.  The western idea of the European spirit drowns the interior movements of the nationalities and saw their execution in the creation of a superorden of abstract concepts of civilization, without feeling that in spite of the national and ethnic multiplicity of agencies, the cultural space and the history of Europe are taken root in a last reality that cannot be defined finally neither to be explained by means of reflections reasoned; that Europe represents thereforeÓrbita dynamic of destiny that covers to all their towns and does them backups of a historic evolution.  
 
Consequently, the east of Europe was also conditioned by the fight against the western spirit.  This space went up to now hostile to Europe.  In every period of the Russian evolution the hatred lasts against Europe, that excited by visions of the steppe, created the bloody mystic of its anarchist empire.  The spiritual and political history of Russia was inspired by the contempt toward the mission of West.  Even its religion and its church flowed into during centuries in the conception of a West disgregado and in the destruction of all the independent ethnic and national forces.  The Bolshevism is the synthesis of this rebellion of the nómadas against the European nobility and against the mission of the European spirit, that filled of indescriptible hatred to the strange men of idiosyncrasy, seduced by the abyss.

The last development of the West and of the new political concepts of the space and of the spirit so much has progressed that today would be absurd to undertake with the traditional principles of the “pacificación” of the towns and of the division of the territories of control the major problem that should resolve our century: the foundation of a European league, that is to say, to structure organically the ordering supernacional and, to weighOf Europe, by the fusion of its towns, leaving from the intuition of the continental destiny, so that remain intact the idea of the national unities and ethnic.  Problems to which the full fight of alternatives of Europe has arrived finally and that do not only affect to the political power or to the prior conditions of a healthy economic orientation in the direction of the common welfare through a new division of the work and the aminoramiento of the superproducción or by means of the suppression of the different commercial bonds, but refer also to allBiological and ideological of the West.  
 
In the fight by the re-establishment of them torn bonds of the humanity with the primitive forces of the to be, Europe is found today in a phase of its evolution that equals to the final phase of an epoch already finished of the western humanity and with which the transition to a new millennium is consummated simultaneously: the third.  For similar events, for their knowledge and their control are necessary forces that themselves are not found neither in the exhausted western man neither in the terrible one yermo spiritual of the British one.  Who have still the instinct of the alive things and know the strength of the historic decisions cannot think otherwise.  
 
Therefore we are in the middle of the greater transformation of the western life.  
 
We are not already only political or only chief economic, only scholarly or poets, but we, witnesses of the present revolution, we are shaken by the most formidable fight of Europe; all we feel the hálito of the destiny, that surrounds ourselves with its rays and creates the physiognomy of it venidero.  Conscious or unconsciously all we are you united in the totality of this destiny, in the rising unit of Europe, and this destiny ourselves will not leave free while do not we succeed or perish Of these present events the new man arises and the new law of the existence.  
 
Not only interiorly, not only the cosmic environment of the spirit has been transformed, but also its órbita exterior and its concatenaciones simpler, so that we do not be already today in conditions to be physicists without mathematical, vital spirit or revolutionary meaningless astronomers of the time.  We know also that for the education of the men no longer are today necessary concepts and forms but above all the intuition of the tragic thing.  Perhaps the true ductores of the new one Europe be only old warriors, leaders that know the allegory of the flame.  
 
It cannot be believed that the future European world, arisen through the present war, will be supported again in meaningless men of the chivalry and the nobility that outline and they direct the cultural life without fanaticism.  Today the building of the intellectualism and of the civilization collapses, of the culture without roots, and begins a was that it will require to the History, dominating it spiritually, leaders and fanatic.  
 
The expression of the new European spirit, that is to say, of the conscience of the ownership of all the continental towns to a cosmic picture culturally determined, to a common idea of the vocation and to a common faith in the value of the living thing and creative, this expression of this conviction has arisen already.  Here an ideology is created that covers this spirit and tries to justify and to support its unit, as philosophy of the European spirit.  
 
In this sense, the philosophy that today is born will be a European movement in which are aimed and clarify the turn of the history and the formation of the new conscience.  
 
I think above all in the resident philosopher in Heidelberg Ernst Krieck, creative of a new idea called to direct this movement of the knowledge that covers to Europe, and to emphasize its root just as has initiated it already in its works and certainly in relation to the eternal forces of the to be and of the premonition of ancient concomitancias of destiny of the European spirit indogermánicamente conditioned.  This root indogermánica or indoeuropea is common to all the historic towns of Europe and us to gives straight to participate in a common European work of civilization without renounce its own one to be and to continue the God that reign in Europe.  
 
When I think here in the philosophy, I do it because the philosophy can justify of the deepest way the metamorphosis of our history as rhythm of the primitive European life and is capable to proclaim in the search of the constructive world forces the community of the European thing.  This philosophy of the new European conscience is born of the epic of the present that supports the creative totality of West and that Ernst Kricck did not do more than aiming, with exception of the symbolism of the European heroism, in the form in which we find it above all in Federico Nietzsche.  
 
It is a magnificent task to work exactly in the land of the revolution of the spirit, that defines to Europe as home of a conscience of apostolado and gives foundation to that fortress of the new history that any destructive power is capable to touch.  
 
But naturally, we should have always present that the new spirit of Europe, this diverse living unit in itself same, should be notified against the inflexibility and protected against every influence on the part of the vital concept English, enemy of Europe, and against the anarchy nihilista.  The European spirit, as assembly, represents an effective and autonomous reality.  
 
The young one Europe that arises of the most violent fight and of the comprehension of the related sphere of the European thing is in germination and all we want to be in peace and in war its soldiers.
