Aesthetic Standards

"In the twentieth century, the German Volk is a Volk of a resurrected affirmation of life, enchanted in its admiration of the strong and beautiful and hence of what is healthy and capable of sustaining life. Power and beauty are the slogans of our time."

-- Adolf Hitler; from speech at Haus der Deutschen Kunst (July 10, 1938)
