In fascist letter, Salvador Dali called for slavery of ‘all coloured races’

Madrid: Salvador Dalí wanted to enslave races he considered inferior and establish a new “sadistic” world religion, a newly discovered letter has revealed.

In the letter, which was written by Dalí in 1935, the artist proposed the enslavement of “all the coloured races” as part of a new world order that would be “anti-Christian and materialistic, based on the progress of science”.

“The domination or submission to slavery of all the coloured races” could be possible, Dalí wrote, “if all whites united fanatically”. He also insisted on the need for “human sacrifices”.

As Europe was threatened by the fascist regimes of Hitler in Germany and Mussolini in Italy, Dalí‘s letter to André Breton, the French writer and co-founder of the surrealist movement, speaks of the need for “new hierarchies, more brutal and strict than ever before” to “annihilate” Christianity.

“I believe that we surrealists are finally turning into priests,” Dalí wrote.

Scornful of Christianity’s “altruism”, he added: “We don’t want happiness for ‘all’ men, rather the happiness of some to the detriment of others”.

True. He just illustrates what libs and materialists say and are when they think only similarly minded libs and materialists looking.

Shouldn't be a surprise at all. Some of that started with Nietzsche (who no doubt was prompted by some other "philosopher"), ran to Marx, and is still happening with those who simply don't learn from history.

The best part about Dali was his mustache. IMHO.

I can only surmise that he freely back-benched himself as a surrealist being a surrealist.  (Never an activist)  None of his art ever trumpeted anything overtly political.  Even Geopoliticus Child just featured a human busting-out of a world globe.

He was devoted to his wife, who never seemed actively political either.

I know that Andre Breton was why Dali always walked around with an anteater-on-a-leash.  It supposedly symbolized Breton's friendship.  That's how these guys think.  And they were already on hand before WW1.  They assigned themselves far, far loftier places in the firmament than where they regarded raving, 2-bit Austrian housepainters should occupy.

Not defending the letter.  Just throwing some dada-points... oops 'data-points' out there.

What I know about Dali, I'll wager your last sentence hits the nail on the head.  Being bizarre for the sake of being bizarre.  Saying things that would get reactions solely for the point of getting reactions.  He probably didn't give two taco tuesday squirts about nazis, slavery, Christianity or any other movement, just pot stirring.

He is still my favorite artist and I base this view entirely on his body of work and not his political/social views.
