1. We demand the union of all Germans in a Great Germany on the
basis of the principle of self-determination of all peoples.
2. We demand that the German people have rights equal to those
of other nations; and that the Peace Treaties of Versailles and St. Germain
shall be abrogated.
3. We demand land and territory (colonies) for the maintenance
of our people and the settlement of our surplus population.
4. Only those who are our fellow countrymen can become citizens.
Only those who have German blood, regardless of creed, can be our countrymen.
Hence no Jew can be a countryman.
5. Those who are not citizens must live in Germany as foreigners
and must be subject to the law of aliens.
6. The right to choose the government and determine the laws
of the State shall belong only to citizens. We therefore demand that no
public office, of whatever nature, whether in the central government, the
province, or the municipality, shall be held by anyone who is not a citizen.
We wage war against the corrupt parliamentary administration whereby
men are appointed to posts by favor of the party without regard to character
7. We demand that the State shall above all undertake to ensure
that every citizen shall have the possibility of living decently and earning
a livelihood. If it should not be possible to feed the whole population,
then aliens (non-citizens) must be expelled from the Reich.
8. Any further immigration of non-Germans must be prevented.
We demand that all non-Germans who have entered Germany since August 2,
1914, shall be compelled to leave the Reich immediately.
9. All citizens must possess equal rights and duties.
10. The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally
or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the
interest of the community to the benefit of all.
Therefore we demand:
11. That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise
from work, be abolished.
12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices
in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be
regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation
of all war profits.
13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.
14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.
15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.
16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class,
the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply
to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to
ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State,
the provinces and municipalities.
17. We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national
requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without
compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of
ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.
18. We demand that ruthless war be waged against those who work
to the injury of the common welfare. Traitors, usurers, profiteers, etc.,
are to be punished with death, regardless of creed or race.
19. We demand that Roman law, which serves a materialist ordering
of the world, be replaced by German common law.
20. In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious
German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into
positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing
thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all
educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception
of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools
from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of
poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the
expense of the State.
21. The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national
health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile
labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory
games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations
concerned with the physical education of the young.
22. We demand the abolition of the regular army and the creation
of a national (folk) army.
23. We demand that there be a legal campaign against those who
propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through
the press. In order to make possible the creation of a German press, we
(a) All editors and their assistants on newspapers published in the
German language shall be German citizens.
(b) Non-German newspapers shall only be published with the express permission
of the State. They must not be published in the German language.
(c) All financial interests in or in any way affecting German newspapers
shall be forbidden to non-Germans by law, and we demand that the punishment
for transgressing this law be the immediate suppression of the newspaper
and the expulsion of the non-Germans from the Reich.
Newspapers transgressing against the common welfare shall be suppressed.
We demand legal action against those tendencies in art and literature that
have a disruptive influence upon the life of our folk, and that any organizations
that offend against the foregoing demands shall be dissolved.
24. We demand freedom for all religious faiths in the state,
insofar as they do not endanger its existence or offend the moral and ethical
sense of the Germanic race.
The party as such represents the point of view of a positive Christianity
without binding itself to any one particular confession. It fights against
the Jewish materialist spirit within and without, and is convinced
that a lasting recovery of our folk can only come about from within on
COMMON GOOD BEFORE INDIVIDUAL GOOD
25. In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation
of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority
by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.
The formation of professional committees and of committees representing
the several estates of the realm, to ensure that the laws promulgated by
the central authority shall be carried out by the federal states.
The leaders of the party undertake to promote the execution of the foregoing
points at all costs, if necessary at the sacrifice of their own lives.
