Sparta and race: the world’s first eugenics

Spartans Society was divided on the basis of the blood into three classes. At the top were the Spartans themselves, almost all – nordidy, they ruled the kings (Sparta had two kings from two ancient families).

Middle class consisted mostly of Greek origin and a few more recent descendants of other Indo-European invaders (such as the Dorians). This middle class was less nordic in appearance than the Spartans themselves.

The lowest class of Spartan society was the darkest in the community, was called helots, who were for the most part of the Mediterranean racial type, and had a close relationship with the North African (Arabic, Nubian and Semitic) slaves to import to the region in an earlier time.

Spartans dedicated themselves to military and physical training. Every Spartan male was a lifelong soldier, never taking part in any other society functions. The middle classes were engaged in commercial activities in the Spartan society, while most lower classes were doing physical work. This social structure has long contributed to the creation of the army: a fully-trained professional army class was unique in history, and the city of Sparta was the only Greek city, which had the city walls – so feared enemies Spartan soldiers that no one could have considered it appropriate to attack city.

The Spartans also practiced a first form of racial eugenics (racial improvement of the line) – allowing you to keep only the best and most perfect of the children, so they survived to adulthood.

The Spartans also regularly participated in the so-called crypto – the mass murder of hundreds of helots at a time, as a necessary action to keep them company.

In addition, Spartan laws dictating severe penalties for celibacy and late marriage, and those released from taxes, who have had more than four children.

The net effect of all these measures has been a gradual enhancement of the nordic spirit in the  Spartan society.

The Spartans actually unique in that they have not gone through racial integration, but rather through a uniform extermination in endless wars.

Adolf Hitler said:

” Sparta must be regarded as the first Völkisch State. The exposure of the sick, weak, deformed children, in short, their destruction, was more decent and in truth a thousand times more humane than the wretched insanity of our day which preserves the most pathological subject, and indeed at any price, and yet takes the life of a hundred thousand healthy children in consequence of birth control or through abortions, in order subsequently to breed a race of degenerates burdened with illnesses”.
