“State”

Hitlerjugend4

From Faith and Action (1938) by Helmut Stellrecht for the Hitler Youth:




A people gives itself its form through the state. There is only one natural form for each people, only one state.

§ In the natural process of growth, each people finds its form and its state, and finds them again when it has lost them, if only it wants to.

§ National Socialism has broken foreign compulsion and eliminated the unnatural. Germany once again grows into its own state and is once more itself.

§ The best rules, the Führer, and he carries the responsibility because he is best able to bear it. The parliament has ceased to exist. This form of Western democracy has been abolished. The German states established by the grace of counts or by Napoleon disappear. The Reich becomes one. The new state rises: “The day is coming when a single tent will cover all the German land.”
