As the era of National Socialism recedes into the past, the less we tend to understand what it was that motivated the German people to accept an obvious fraud and clown like Hitler.

Of course, we have the benefit of hindsight. We know how the story turns out. We can't help but see the Germany of 1933 through the lens of the Dachau and Auschwitz. The people of 1933 didn't know the future; they knew the present "then" and did not have the advantage of knowing where they decisions would lead. We have an ineluctable tendency to apply a "retrospective fallacy" of judging the past by the knowledge of the present.

This book is a useful antidote to the retrospective fallacy. This is a collection of excerpts of Hitler's speeches from 1933 to 1938 which were carefully collated by the National Socialist regime for foreign consumption. When we read these speeches, we can see how a German population might come to embrace Hitler and National Socialism for reasons other than anti-Semitism and an attraction toward evil.

In the grip of the retrospective fallacy we forget the condition of German and the Germans in 1933 - the year of Hitler's accession to power. At that that time, the Rhineland region was occupied by France, the Saar was effectively independent and would vote on independence, union with France or return to Germany in a few years, Germany was paying huge reparations, large sections of historic German territory had been removed from Germany, and Germans were relegated to pariah nation status by the "War Guilt" clauses of the Versailles Treaty. To attempt a contemporary analogy, it would be as if the United States had lost a war, and had the East Coast occupied, California made an independent province, lost Texas to Mexico and could not enter into equal trade treaties with foreign nations and had to acknowledge that it was responsible for its humiliation.

These issues run though Hitler's speeches. For example, Hitler constantly appealed to notions of equality:

"Germany desires nothing except an equal right to live and equal freedom...The German nation wishes to live in peace with the rest of the world....Our love of peace is perhaps greater than that of other nations, for we suffered most from this unhappy war." (May 21, 2935)

"The German struggle for equality of rights, which we regard as a struggle for the honour and inalienable fights of our people and which we will therefore never abandon, can in my opinion best be brought to an end by reconciliation between the two great nations who have so often during the past centuries spilled the blood of their best sons on the field of battle without essentially changing thereby the underlying facts..France fears for her security. Nobody in Germany intends to menace it, and we are ready to do whatever is possible to sun." (January 30, 1934.)

Some takeaways: (1) when someone starts speaking in terms of "equality," watch out, and (2) dictators will lie without blinking an eye.

This book is arranged by topic. So, the outtakes of speeches are divided into subjects, such as "The New German Army," "The Consequences of Versailles," "The Peasantry," The Winter Help Organization" and "National Socialism and Christianity."

A couple of interesting things I learned were (1) Hitler's economic theory blamed the Depression on the Versailles Treaty: a consequence of the Versailles Treaty was that Germany had to often pay off its reparation obligation through raw material dumps onto the market or the export of cheap German goods, which Hitler interpreted as a reason for the unraveling of international commerce. I vaguely remember this as a reason for the Depression in a high school history class. (2) Hitler explained German surrender as a salvific act on the part of Germany, i.e., an attempt to protect Europe from the Bolshevik revolution that was breaking out in Germany. You can almost see how he could make this claim in terms of the timing of revolution and German defeat.

I am interested in Hitler and religion, so my focus was on that issue. Frankly, we don't see a lot of Hitlerian religiosity. In the approximate 100 pages of this short book, around 4 might betray some religious sentiment. Hitler is all over the map on the subject. Thus, on May 21, 1933, he affirms that he felt obliged "as the Fuhrer of the German nation, responsible to God and my own conscience," however in 1935 (p. 14), Hitler speaks of being permitted by "Providence" to restore honour to the German people. (p. 15, 46) Elsewhere, Hitler declares:

"There is but one commander of this conscience of mine - namely, the nation - the German nation and the pick of it that is united in the Movement, in the National Socialist Party. In everything that I do this is the only commander to which I feel myself responsible." (October 6, 1935, p. 59.)

Elsewhere he reminds his listeners that they are members of the German nation "by God's will" (May 1, 1935, p. 66) and he leads a prayer, stating "No Lord, the German nation is strong again its own will, strong in perseverance and strong to make every sacrifice. Lord, we will not let thee go!"(May 1, 1935, p. 91.)(See also p. 92 for a prayer from 1938.)

In short, there is enough there to answer that Hitler was an atheist, a theist and a pagan.

The philosophy of authority and Darwinism make an appearance:

"Thus, the sine qua non for, and basis, of the State is, and always will be, the authority embodied in the will to the maintenance of the State." (p.44.)

And:

"With infallibility we are steering towards an order of things in which a process of selection will become active in the political leadership of the nation, as it exists throughout the wholoe of life in general. By the process of selection, which will follow the rules of Nature and the dictates of human reason, those among our people who show the greatest natural ability will be appointed to positions in the political leadership of the nation." (P. 46.)

Excerpts from Hitler's 1933 speeches on Christianity are also contained in this book In these speeches, Hitler affirms that the two Christian denominations will play an important role in the Reich but:

"But they cannot permit that the fact of belonging to a certain confession or a certain race should constitute a release from general legal obligations or even license for the commission of crimes with impunity, or for its toleration. (March 23, 1033, p. 90.)

Hitler also warns that "But under no condition whatsoever will the National Socialist State permit religious denominations to engage in political activities, whether these activities be a continuance of the old tradition or something started afresh. And here I should like to issue a definite warning against the entertaining of any illusions whatsoever in regard to the fixed determination of the Movement and the STate. We have already fought the clerical politicians and forced them to leave Parliament. It was a long struggle during which we held no public power whatsoever, whereas the others held all the power in their hands." (1945, p. 92.)

There seem to be about two references to anti-semitism. The balance of the speeches presents Hitler as a not untypical politician trying to influence things for his German constituency.
