Commonplace Book: Continuity

“Thus Hitler establishes a firm continuity between persuasion, propaganda, intimidation and terror, between words and deeds, and this continuity is the characteristic praxis of his regime. Facing this continuity, the citizen of the Third Reich has allowed himself to be placed in a situation in which he must choose: acclamation or brute suppression, Yes or No. The religious insinuation is unmistakable.”

— J.P. Stern, Hitler: The Führer and the People (1975), p. 84
