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'
