What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 7 in a series – “…against everything nobler, better, decent, against freedom, truth and justice.”

September 24th, 2019

“The novelist Thomas Mann noted in his diary on March 27, 1933, two months after Hitler had become German chancellor, that he had witnessed a revolution of a kind never seen before, “without underlying ideas, against ideas, against everything nobler, better, decent, against freedom, truth and justice.” The “common scum” had taken power, “accompanied by vast rejoicing on the part of the masses.”24“

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
