Martial Virtue

"Against the Jewish-democratic idea of blind worship of majorities, the Army held aloft that of faith in personality... This was the school for the German nation, and it was not without reason that the inveterate hatred of those whose envy and greed required that the State should be powerless and its citizens weaponless was concentrated upon it."
-- Adolf Hitler; from 'Mein Kampf'

Might Makes Right, Part II

"The conviction that there is a right to use weapons, even the most brutal, ever goes hand in hand with fanatical belief that a new and revolutionizing order of things must be victorious in the world. A movement that fails to fight for such high ideals and aims will never fight to the very last. In producing a great new idea the French Revolution discovered the secret of success. It was the same with the Russian Revolution, and Fascism drew its strength solely from the idea of submitting a whole nation to a process of complete regeneration, with very happy results for that nation."
-- Adolf Hitler; from 'Mein Kampf'
