Most importantly of all, revealed in this work is the one true cause of the rise and fall of the world’s greatest empires - that all civilizations rise and fall according to their racial homogeneity and nothing else - a nation can survive wars, defeats, natural catastrophes, but not racial dissolution.

PART V - THE HISTORY OF THE SWASTIKA
Few symbols are as well known in the world today as the swastika. While it is common perception that the swastika is a German Nazi Party symbol, it is in fact far older that the Nazi Party, and its origin lies in the Sanskrit language carried by the Indo-European peoples throughout their migrations.
As an enduring symbol of the Indo-European peoples wherever they went, the swastika is found in all the lands where these people settled. Some examples:1. The Swastika in India:
Above: The swastika can be seen on a carving called an ayagaptha, in Mathura, India. The emblem is one of the last remains of the tribe of Nordic Indo-Europeans - who called themselves Aryans - who invaded India. In that land, they were eventually absorbed into the overwhelming non-White mass, creating the caste system still present in that country to this day.
2. The Swastika in Classical Greece:
Above: An example of how the swastika was also used as a symbol in Classical Greece. Here it can be seen as a decoration on the clothing of a picture of Athene, the Goddess of Wisdom, the arts and war - and also patron of the city of Athens. This detail is from a Greek vase dating from approximately 500 BC.
3. The Swastika in Classical Rome:
Above: The Indo-European origins of the Romans - in particular the Latini tribe - are apparent through their liberal use of the swastika as an embl em. Here the swastika can be seen upon the Ara Pacis Augustae: the altar built to commemorate the peace established by Augustus, consecrated 4 July 13 BC. The swastika can also be seen in a virtually identical format in many Classical Greek designs: hence it is often called a "Greek key" pattern.
4. The Swastika in the Viking era
Above: The Indo-European origins of the Vikings is illustrated by this detail from a very well preserved Viking ship uncovered by archeologists in Scandinavia, known as the Osberg ship, circa 800 AD. A handle mount on a bucket found in the ship depicts a figure carrying a shield with four swastika sun emblems in its corners. The fact that the swastika appears as a symbol from Scandinavia to Italy to India indicates precisely how far the Indo-European influence was felt.
5. The Isle of Man Triskelion, ca. 10 Century AD.
6. The Swastika and Adolf Hitler
Above: The sun wheel, or swastika, was a symbol in the ancient Nordic Indo-European language, Sanskrit, meaning "well being" or "good", from the fact that the sun was regarded as a source of goodness. This symbol was carried by invading Indo-Europeans into Europe, India and even China. The ancient link to the Indo-European people was then the reason why Adolf Hitler chose the swastika as his movement's emblem, as pictured here.
7. The Swastika in Western Architecture
Prior to its demonizing through its association with Adolf Hitler, the swastika was a popular motif in much of western architecture, from the Opera Building in Paris through to the front door of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
