Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924) said: "Socialized medicine is the keystone of the creation of a socialist state".
"Nazi" is the abbreviation of the National Socialist Workers' Party. Its leader was Adolph Hitler, who became Chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933. Hitler began implementing a universal health care plan without regard for conscience.
On October 10, 1933, the New York Times reported: "Nazi plan to kill incurables to overcome pain; German religious groups oppose … The Ministry of Justice … explaining the Nazi objectives in terms of the German Penal Code, today announced its intention to allow doctors to put an end to the sufferings of the patient incurable … in the interest of true humanity. … "
The New York Times continued: "The Catholic newspaper Germania hastened to say:" The Catholic faith forces the conscience of its followers not to accept this method. "… In Lutheran circles too, life is considered something that only God can assume. … Euthanasia … has become a widely discussed word in the Reich. … No life that will still have value for the state will be destroyed without reason. "
When the German economy suffered, it was necessary to reduce the expenditure of the national health care system, such as keeping alive the disabled, the insane, the chronically ill, the elderly and people with dementia. They were considered "lebensunwertes leben" – a life unworthy of life. Then criminals, convicts, street tramps, beggars and gypsies, considered as "leeches" on society, suffered the same fate.
Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger, was the editor of the Birth Control Review, a magazine that published in April 1933 an article by Ernst Rudin, one of the "Fathers of Racial Hygiene." ".
Ernst Rudin advised the Nazi Workers Socialist Party to prevent faulty hereditary genes from being passed on to future generations by people considered by the state as inferior human beings – "untermensch".
The National Socialist Workers Party described the Aryan race as ubermensch (superhuman). The etymology of Aryan is Iran, from where the Indo-Iranian people descended.
The National Socialist Labor Party put in place horrific plans to purge the pool of human genes from what it considered "inferior" races, resulting in the death of 6 million Jews and millions more in the rooms. gas and ovens. Nazi anatomists removed parts of the human body from prisoners for purposes of scientific research and laboratory experimentation.
In 1977, the American surgeon general C. Everett Koop declared: "When the first 273 000 elderly, infirm and retarded Germans were killed in gas chambers, this medical profession did not arouse any outcry … and this is not far from Auschwitz. "
The British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge explained: "We have … for those who have eyes to see, a basic lesson on what the quest for" quality of life "without reference to the" sacredness of life "can involve. … The origin of the Holocaust does not lie in Nazi terrorism … but in … the acceptance by Germany of euthanasia and killing by mercy as humane and estimable. "
Suddenly, there was a crisis.
The building of the German capitol – the Reichstag – was set on fire in 1933 under suspicious conditions, which some historians have claimed to involve Hitler's supporters. Hitler immediately declared a national emergency and suspended his fundamental rights. He quickly arrested his political opponents and had them shot without trial.
Hitler came to power with the help of violent gay activists called Brownshirts, who organized the boycott of Jewish businesses, and stormed and disrupted meetings of opposing parties. Hitler forced the former traditional military generals to withdraw, freeing his administration of the possibility of retaining a vestige of "archaic" Judeo-Christian values that could resist him.
Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels said in "The Goebbels Diaries 1939-41" that, in reality, Hitler "hates Christianity because it paralyzed all that is noble in humanity".
Hitler influenced the audience with hypnotizing speeches. The Nazis confiscated weapons.
An Oberführer SA warned against an order by the interim Bavarian Minister of the Interior: "The deadline for handing over the weapons will expire on March 31, 1933. I therefore request the immediate surrender of all weapons. … Whoever does not belong to one of these named units (SA, SS and Stahlhelm) and … keeps his weapon without permission or even hides it, must be considered an enemy of the national government and will be held responsible without hesitation and with the utmost severity. "
Heinrich Himmler, leader of the Nazi SS ("Schutzstaffel" – Protection Squadron), said: "Germans wishing to use firearms must join the SS or SA. Ordinary citizens do not need weapons because their weapons do not serve the state. "
The disarmament of the civilian population was a necessary step in state control, Vladimir Lenin explained: "An armed man can control a hundred people without one. "
When an alleged young homosexual fired on a Nazi diplomat in Paris, it was used as a pretext to confiscate all the guns of the Jews.
German newspapers printed, November 10, 1938: "Jews are forbidden to possess weapons. By order of SS Reichsführer Himmler, Munich … "Persons who, under the Nuremberg law, are considered Jews, are prohibited from possessing weapons. Offenders will be sentenced to a concentration camp and imprisoned for a period of up to 20 years. "
On November 9, 1938, the New York Times reported: "The Berlin police … announced that … the entire Jewish population of Berlin had been" disarmed "with the confiscation of 2,569 handguns, 1,702 firearms and 20,000 cartridges. All Jews still found in possession of weapons without a valid permit are threatened with the most severe punishment. "
About the Waffengesetz (Nazi Weapons Act), March 18, 1938, Hitler said at a dinner-chat, April 11, 1942 ("The Conversation of Hitler's Table, 1941-1944: His Conversations" private ", 2nd edition, 1973, pp. 425-6). translated by Norman Cameron and RH Stevens): "The most stupid mistake we could make would be to allow subject races to possess weapons. History shows that all the conquerors who allowed their subject races to carry weapons prepared their own fall. … so we do not have an aboriginal militia or aboriginal police. German troops will be solely responsible for maintaining the law and order. "
Franklin D. Roosevelt told Hitler on December 15, 1941: "For him, the government is not the servant … of the people, but his absolute master and the dictator of each of his acts. … The rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that seemed inalienable to the Founders of the Republic were for Hitler and his fellows empty words. … "
FDR continued: "Hitler has argued: That the human being has no right over himself … no rights over his own soul, his own mind, his own language or his own business; or even live where he wants or marry the woman that he loves; That his only duty is the duty of obedience, not to his God, nor to his conscience, but to Adolf Hitler. … Its only value is its value, not as a man, but as a unit of the Nazi state. "
In his State of the Union address on January 6, 1942, FDR said, "The world is too small … for Hitler and for God. … The Nazis have now announced their plan to impose their … pagan religion all over the world … by which the Holy Bible and the Cross of Mercy would be displaced by Mein Kampf and the swastika. "
Churchill, in "From War to War" (World War 1, chapter 4, page 50) describes Hitler's Mein Kampf as follows: "… the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, wordy , without form, but pregnant with his message. "
Hitler originally had to allow Jews to be deported to Palestine, but the great Mufti of Jerusalem, Mohammad Amin al-Husseini, who met with Hitler, also had anti-Jewish views. From 1931, al-Husseini attempted to follow the example of Hitler by expelling the Jews from Palestine, as would the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Mufti al-Husseini recruited 30,000 Bosnian Muslims to join Hitler's Waffen-SS. Hitler granted financial aid to al-Husseini, then to asylum in 1941, with the honorary rank of Major General SS.
At the final battle in Berlin in April 1945, as Allied forces approached Hitler's bunker, they clashed with a hundred Muslims of the Mufti Arab Legion taking a suicidal position for the last time.
According to Hitler, the Nazis had the right solution but the bad religion: "If Charles Martel had not been victorious in Poitiers (732 AD), we would probably have converted to mohammedanism, this cult that glorifies heroism and opens the seventh heaven to the daring warrior alone. Then the German races would have conquered the world. "
Hitler told the Nazis: "The peoples of Islam will always be closer to us than, for example, France."
According to Albert Speer, Minister of Armaments and War Production of the Third Reich, Hitler said in private: "The Muslim religion would also have been much more compatible with us than Christianity … with its softness and flaccidity?"
Although, at the beginning of his career, Hitler claimed to have sympathy for Christianity in order to be elected, once in power, he revealed his Nazi social Darwinism and his open hostility to Christianity.
Franklin D. Roosevelt stated on December 15, 1941: "For Hitler, the church … is a monstrosity to be destroyed by all means."
Ministers who resisted Hitler's attempt to "Nazi" the German Protestant Church were imprisoned. The founder of the confessing Church, Reverend Martin Niemöller, wrote: "They first came for the Socialists, and I did not speak a Socialist. Then they came to pick up the unionists and I did not speak because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak because I was not Jewish. Then they came to get me and there was no one left to speak for me.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer is another confessing church leader who resisted Hitler. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was born on February 4, 1906. He studied in New York in 1930, where he met Frank Fisher, an African-American seminarian who introduced him to the Harlem Abyssinian Baptist Church. He was inspired by the witty African-Americans and by the preaching of Adam Clayton Powell, father, who helped Bonhoeffer go from "phraseology to reality", motivating him to rise up against injustice . Bonhoeffer helped found the Confessing Church in Germany, who refused to be intimidated by Hitler.
He said: "Silence in the face of evil is in itself an evil: God will not hold us responsible."
In his book, "The Cost of the Disciple," Bonhoeffer rebuked the nominal Christians: "Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, a baptism without ecclesial discipline. Communion without confession. Cheap grace is a grace without a disciple, a grace without the cross, a grace without Jesus Christ. "
Bonhoeffer said in a sermon of 1932: "The blood of the martyrs may be reclaimed again, but this blood, if we really have the courage and the loyalty to spread it, will not be innocent and will not shine like that of first witnesses of faith. A heavy guilt on our blood rests on the guilt of the useless servant.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer warned the Germans not to fall into the cult worship of the Führer (leader) because he could turn out to be a Verführer (bad leader, seducer).
Jimmy Carter wrote in his book "Sources of Strength," 1997: "Rev. Niebuhr urged Dietrich Bonhoeffer to stay in America for his own safety. Bonhoeffer refused. He felt that he must be among the other persecuted Christians in Germany. So he went home and … in resistance to Hitler … publicly preached against Nazism, racism and anti-Semitism. Bonhoeffer was finally arrested and imprisoned. "
On his return to Germany, Bonhoeffer wrote: "Jesus Christ lived among his enemies. In the end, all his disciples abandoned him. On the cross, he was completely alone, surrounded by criminals and scoffers. For this reason he came to bring peace to the enemies of God. Thus, the Christian does not belong either to the solitude of a cloistered life, but to the thickness of his enemies. "
Jimmy Carter continued: "Dietrich Bonhoeffer died on April 9, 1945, just days before the liberation of Germany by the Allied armies. It was executed on the orders of Heinrich Himmler. He died as a disciple and a martyr. … "
Carter added, "The same Holy Spirit … who gave Bonhoeffer the strength to stand up against Nazi tyranny is available to us today."
Dietrich Bonhoeffer launched a challenge: "Enduring the cross is not a tragedy; it is the suffering that is the fruit of exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ. "
On February 16, 2002, Dr. James Dobson told national religious broadcasters: "Those of you who feel that the church has no responsibility in the cultural field. … and if it was in 1943 and you were in Nazi Germany and you knew what Hitler was doing to the Jews. … would you say that we are not political, that is the problem of someone else?
Dobson concluded, "I thank God. Dietrich Bonhoeffer did not give this answer. He was arrested by the Nazis and hanged in 1945, naked and alone because he said, "It's not fair. "
