Count Richard Nikolaus Eijiro von Coudenhove-Kalergi
Wikipedia lists as fellow-travelers such Catholic luminaries as Engelbert Dollfuss, Otto von Habsburg, and even our own Whittaker Chambers! Calling him "practically a Pan-European organization himself," Mr. Chambers elaborates on his family,
- The Coudenhoves were a wealthy Flemish family that fled to Austria during the French Revolution. The Kalergis were a wealthy Cretan family. The line has been further crossed with Poles, Norwegians, Balts, French and Germans, but since the families were selective as well as cosmopolite, the hybridization has been consistently successful.
We learn also that his father "took them to Mass every Sunday," but "[o]n every Good Friday, as the liturgy came to the exhortation 'oremus et pro perfidis Judaeis' ('Let us also pray for the faithless Jews'), the old count allegedly rose and walked out of the church in a protest against this supposed expression of antisemitism." About the Jews, the young count wrote,
- Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe’s feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation.
Let us end with a quote from this great man: "We are experiencing the most dangerous revolution in the world history: the revolution of the State against the man. We are experiencing the worst idolatry of all the time: the deification of the state."
