Guest. Mark Musser author of Nazi Oaks. This is part one of a two part interview. Description: Nazi Oaks details the anti-Semitic historical background to the early German green movement of the 1800s that was later absorbed by the Nazi Party in the 1930s and 40s. While many histories have decried the industrial nature of the holocaust, such views cannot explain the motive behind the greatest crime committed in the 20th century. The holocaust itself was carried out under a green cover because Nazi racism was largely rooted in the Social Darwinism of German Romanticism that laid the ecological foundations for what today is otherwise known as environmentalism. As an important ingredient of the argument, "Nazi Oaks" also demonstrates the anti-Christian bias of the environmental movement in America which paralleled the anti-Semitic bias in Germany during the 1800s. Nazi Oaks describes why the holocaust is best understood as a modernized form of human sacrifice carried out under biological/ecological camouflage that is rooted in the sacrificial oak imagery of ancient paganism. The word "holocaust" itself means "whole burnt offering."
