Pierre Krebs, (born December 20, 1948) is a French-German ideologue who leads the cultural association Thule-Seminar.

Biography

Krebs had studied law at the University of Montpellier, journalism at Ecole Superieure de Journalisme, and sociology and political science at École des Hautes Études Sociales, achieving degrees in each of these. He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Paris. During the 1960s, Krebs was involved with the French right-wing parties Rassemblement Européen de la Liberté and Mouvement nationaliste du Progrès and was the editor of the magazine REL Europe. After later moving to Germany, Krebs further studied various subjects in Göttingen and also founded the group Thule-Seminar, which was meant to be a right-wing think-tank to change the ideological or cultural situation in Europe by intellectual activity and metapolitics. Krebs also joined the Pagan group Artgemeinschaft and published numerous books, the most well-known of which is Fighting for the Essence (originally Im Kampf um das Wesen). Krebs's philosophy is identitarian, asserts the reality and importance of race and ethnicity while rejecting accusations of "racism," and advocates that all races and ethnicities who wish to defend their identity and create homogeneous societies should work together to accomplish this and fight globalism and egalitarianism. Krebs is also a radical anti-Christian Pagan, which is perhaps the most controversial aspect of his work.

Qutoes

  • "Robbed of its freedom to remain itself in the continuity of its ethno-cultural particularism - in short, deprived of its basic right to difference and to life - the people find themselves henceforth condemned to disintegrate and then die out through mixture, fused into a multiracial society, which is a prelude to the global society and the omega point of Western civilisation. The cycle of egalitarian madness consequently ends exactly where it started: from the political eradication of the values of the demos and as such, of the key principles of organic democracy... Heralded by the political denaturing of democracy, prepared by the juridical subversion of its institutions, identitarian suicide will henceforth be encouraged, protected and, worse, legalised by the constitutions in their plan of a multiracial society, which is a subtle machine to kill peoples." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "In fact, just as the self-defined individual who differentiates himself from the surrounding masses does not isolate himself from society, but on the contrary enriches it with his uniqueness, so also a people conscious of their difference do not isolate themselves any more from the human species, but come closer to it every time they endow it with their singularities and their peculiarities. The more a people becomes conscious of their difference, the more their opening up to the world has a chance of profiting others . . . and the more they are inclined to tolerate the differences of others." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "One must stop, once and for all, abstracting peoples and cultures through the illusory concept of 'humanity' for the simple reason that 'humanity' does not exist any more than 'man' in himself... On the contrary, the planet teems with particular men who one can observe at leisure in the realities of the organic social and cultural life of the race, peoples or nations... Those who act or speak in the name of 'humanity'... should bear in mind that the protection of the human species depends essentially on the preservation of the different peoples that constitute it, whereas the ideologies that more or less encourage ethnic thanatos are, on the contrary, the most suited to destroy it!" (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "There is no being-in-himself, but only and everywhere human beings formed and rooted in their ethno-cultural significances... They [peoples] each express themselves in the singularity of their culture and they each manifest themselves in the rhythm of a well-defined political will and historical project.... The repetition of the Same has definitely Westernised the planet into the totalitarian straitjacket of egalitarianism. In this world of ethno-cultural amnesia delivered to the totalitarian yoke of economics, man, stripped of his distinctive traits, is no longer either the being of interdependent and cooperative culture of the historical project of his people, nor the historical being who accomplishes himself within his destined community. Reduced to the status of an acultural and ahistorical object-individual, this individual has lost the key to his humanity." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "Decadence. Rarely spectacular, this plague that infiltrates slowly into the organism of peoples erodes them sharply. In fact, when a people no longer find in themselves their own reasons to live and believe or, in other words, when a people is no longer satisfied with themselves, they are assuredly ripe for slavery - and there begins their decline. When a people think that they find in other peoples their reasons to live and believe, they have already fallen into slavery - and then their decadence is rife and complete. But when a people, unsatisfied with the contempt that they inflict on themselves in submissively assimilating the culture, language and gods of another people further submerge their biological identity, then, henceforth incapable of maintaining themselves in the ethno-cultural authenticity of their uniqueness, they sign their death sentence for all eternity - and then their destruction occurs immediately." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "Whether it is affirmed or contested, the identitarian tradition henceforth orients the new divides that are already being established at the crossroads of destiny, where everything may die or be reborn at the place where history is digging a definitive cleft between two understandings of the world, between two visions of the future, between two conceptions of man: on the one side, the statist masses, members of the universal egalitarian technocosmos ... on the other, the ethnic communities, the political and cultural idiosyncrasies mirroring the natural planetary polyphony.... Let us continue forward to assume our humanity, each one in the rhythm of his individuality, each in obedience to his origins." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "The originality and the richness of the human heritages of this world are nourished by their differences and their deviations, which surprise and fascinate as soon as one passes from the culture of one people to another. These originalities can find protection, in turn, only in the homogeneous ethno-cultural space that is proper to them. The defenders of multiracialism are the primary destroyers, consciously or unconsciously, of this elementary right. To resist the aggressive ideology of human rights, the doctrinal alibi of the totalitarian Western society, it is urgent to draw up a new Declaration of the Rights of Peoples in concert with all the movements that fight on this Earth for the respect of their ethno-cultural identities." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "Any talk about people and culture boils down to dealing with the fundamental question of territory. It is a cardinal question that is impossible to avoid, since it opens and closes every debate on identity. In effect, territory is to a people what air is to our lungs. If it happens to disappear, the cultural and biological life of an ethnic group is threatened with asphyxiation (in a very real sense) in a short span. All the discussion that relate to identity cannot ignore the notion of territory if they do not wish to sink into the ridiculous... The cohabitation of different communities within a state is possible only when the territorial integrity of each community is clearly defined and its sovereignty strongly guaranteed, as in the case of Switzerland, a model of ethnic cooperation which evidently has nothing to do with the multiracial society 'that Heiner Geissler imagines'." (Fighting for the Essence)
  • "...each political apparatus is reinforced by a civil consensus, the psychological support of the masses. This psychological support expresses itself through a consensus on the level of culture, world-view and ethos. In order to exists at all, political power is thus dependent on a cultural power diffused within the masses... it is impossible to overthrow a political apparatus without previously having gained control of cultural power. The assent of the people must be won first: their ideas, ethos, ways of thinking, the value-system, art, education have to be worked on and modified. Only when people feel the need for change as a self-evident necessity will the existing political power, now detached from the general consensus, start crumbling and be overthrown. Metapolitics can be seen as the revolutionary war fought out on the level of world-views, ways of thinking and culture." (Die europäische Wiedergeburt)
  • "...our task is to oppose the egalitarian ethos and egalitarian socio-economic thinking with a world-view based on differentiation: this means an ethic and a socio-economic theory which respects the right to be different. We want to create the system of values and attitudes necessary for gaining control of cultural power. Our strategy is dictated neither by the immediate contingencies of reality nor the superficial upheavals of political life. We are not interested in political factions but in attitudes to life... What motivates us and what we are striving for does cannot be accommodated within the activities of a political party, but - and we insist on this point - solely within the framework of a metapolitical, exclusively cultural project. A programme which sets out once again to make us conscious of our identity through awakening the memory of our future, as it were. In this way we aim to prepare the ground for what is to come... The tragedy of the contemporary world is the tragedy of disloyalty: the uprooting of every culture, estrangement from our true natures, the atomization of man, the levelling of values, the uniformity of life. A critical and exhaustive engagement with modern knowledge - from philosophy to ethology, from anthropology to sociology, from the natural sciences to history and educational theory - if carried out with the appropriate intellectual rigour and sound empirical methodology, can only contribute to throwing light on the general confusion of the world." (Die europäische Wiedergeburt)
