Fascism and the Press

"One thing which increased... our liking for Italy is the fact that there, the leadership of state and the policies of the press go hand in hand, instead of letting the leadership of state talk about understanding while the press is launching a smear campaign in the other direction!"

-- Adolf Hitler; from speech to Reichstag (Feb. 20, 1938)

The Right Wing Belief System

"I believe in Divine Justice. I believe that it has defeated Germany because we had become faithless, and I believe that it will help us because we now once again profess our faith. I believe that the long arm of the Almighty will withdraw from those who are seeking merely alien shelter. "

Adolf Hitler -- from speech at Berlin Sportpalast (Feb. 27, 1932)

The fascist game plan

"If once popular support, power and the authority of tradition are united in one, that authority may be considered to be unshakable."

The Duty of Fascism

"When, in parliament, I delivered my first speech of November 16, 1922, after the Fascist revolution, I concluded by invoking the assistance of God in my difficult task. Well, this sentence of mine seemed to be out of place! In the Italian parliament, a field of action for Italian Masonry, the name of God had been banned for a long time... It remained for me to make this bold innovation! And in an intense period of revolution! What is the truth! It is that a faith openly professed is a sign of strength. I have seen the religious spirit bloom again; churches once more are crowded, the ministers of God are themselves invested with new respect. Fascism has done and is doing its duty."

-- Benito Mussolini; from his autobiography (1928)

The Necessity of Religion

"There are many signs of a struggle, every day increasing in violence, against the dogmatic principles of the various Churches, without which, in practice, religious belief is inconceivable in this world of humanity. The general mass of a nation do not consist of philosophers; faith for them is very largely the sole basis for a moral view of life. The various attempts to find substitutes have not proved so suitable or successful as to be obviously a good exchange for the former religious confessions."
-- Adolf Hitler; from Mein Kampf

Giving Thanks (Part 2)

"Today I must bow down in thanks to Providence, whose mercy has enabled me, once an unknown soldier in the World War, to thus help our Volk to win the battle for the restoration of its honor and uprightness"

-- Adolf Hitler; from speech to the Reichstag (January 30, 1937)

The Dangers of Contraception

"means for preventing a birth are offered for sale in every chemist's shop... what is in practice a cessation of fecundity in millions of our best people is not regarded as an evil or an offense against the morals of this sanctimonious society ; it is instead a sop to its short-sighted slackness of thought. For if it were otherwise, they would have to rack their brains and consider how to make provision for nourishing and conserving the healthy representatives of our nation, who should perform a similar service for the benefit of generations to come." 

-- Adolf Hitler; from 'Mein Kampf'
