Sample text

What are the roots of this power. about which there is no discourse in German schools, youth groups, and political training schools? It is the power of suffering~or justice. The power idol that National Socialism preaches day after day and whose veneration is ingrained in the souls of German children has an adversary for which it is no match: justice. You know II 1942 [73] what the National Socialists have done with justice. They have said that whatever is of use to the German nation is just; they have sold justice into the slavery of power.

If it does not do that, it is a beau- tiful sport, but without seriousness. It is a dream but not truth; and what is worse than its being sport and dream is that it creates a diversion from the truth. The unveiling of the truth is not pleasant to those who have power and misuse this power at the expense of others. For this reason, they fear the intellect and seek either to wipe out its bearers or-what is more important in the long run- to buy them and to place them in their service. And thereby, we are in the midst of the tragedy of the German intellect: it exalted when it should have condemned; it veiled when it should have unveiled; it kept silent when it should have spoken; it retreated when it should have fought; it betrayed when it should have tolerated.

Therefore, we should not hate, you will answer, when our friends or brothers or sons or fathers are being tortured to death in a concentration camp; we should not hate when we lead a miserable life in anxiety and slavery; the Jews should not hate when they are subjected to the most cruel process of extermination; the conquered lands should not hate when their men are being shot and their children are being killed through hunger; the countries engaged in combat should not hate when their country is being devastated under the breaking of all treaties?
