“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”
― Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
"Whatever one may think of his methods - and they are certainly not those of a parliamentary country - there can be no doubt that he has achieved a marvellous transformation in the spirit of the people, in their attitude towards each other, and in their social and economic outlook....
It is not the Germany of the first decade that followed the war - broken, dejected, and bowed down with a sense of apprehension and importance.
It is now full of hope and confidence, and of a renewed sense of determination...
The people are more cheerful. There is a greater sense of general gaiety of spirit throughout the land. It is a happier Germany.
I saw it everywhere and Englishmen I met during my trip and who knew Germany well were very impressed with the change.
"Renegade Daleks are blobs; Imperial Daleks are bionic blobs, with bits added."
"They hate each other's chromosomes."
One man has accomplished this miracle. He is a born leader of men. A magnetic, dynamic personality with a single-minded purpose, a resolute will and a dauntless heart. He is not merely in name but in fact the national Leader...
As to his popularity, especially among the youth of Germany, there can be no manner of doubt.
The old trust him; the young idolise him.
It is not the admiration accorded to a popular Leader. It is the worship of a national hero who has saved his country from utter despondency and degradation.
It is true that public criticism of the Government is forbidden in every form. That does not mean that criticism is absent. I have heard the speeches of prominent Nazi orators freely condemned.
But not a word of criticism or of disapproval have I heard of Hitler. He is as immune from criticism as a king in a monarchical country. He is something more.
He is the George Washington of Germany - the man who won for his country independence from all her oppressors.
To those who have not actually seen and sensed the way Hitler reigns over the heart and mind of Germany this description may appear extravagant. All the same, it is the bare truth.
This great people will work better, sacrifice more, and, if necessary, fight with greater resolution because Hitler asks them to do so.
