White Rose Society of Today: Primary Purpose

“Cast off the cloak of indifference with which you have covered your heart. Choose before it is too late.”

Leaflet 5 of the White Rose Resistance – 1942

Today’s White Rose Society is committed to nonviolence and solidarity across party lines. Our main purpose is to address the abuses of power by government leaders, agencies and their policies. Mutual respect and human dignity is our keystone.

Our purpose is not just about what we want but rather to ensure that truth is upheld and that we are working together to form solutions that are beneficial for all. Social reform requires more than protesting or political sniping. It requires innovative ideas to bring to the table and we are doing just that. Service to our communities and to our fellow man is what we do.

Peace and blessings,

At the same time, they actively suppressed pacifism at home. Orwell mentions “… pacifist activities are not permitted in those countries (in both the penalty is or can be, beheading).”

He may have been referring to the Hans and Sophie Scholl who were beheaded by the Nazis in 1942 for distributing anti-Nazi literature. They founded the legendary White Rose Society, which is still active today. However, Orwell does not say.

Further, he gives an insider’s devilish view that Gandhi’s pacifism was extremely useful for the British, and far from being defeated by it, they employed it to good effect. Fascist regimes do not fear pacifism; they fear violence.

The classic quote you will see from this essay is: “Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other.”
