ADOLF HITLER ON ART AND EDUCATION
"Today there is perhaps only one domain in which family station is actually less decisive than one's inborn ability; the domain is art" from Mein Kampf page 638.
"As little as one could imagine about sixty years ago a political collapse of the greatness now arrived at, just as little was a cultural breakdown thinkable as it began to show itself in futuristic and cubistic representations since 1900. Sixty years ago an exhibition of so-called dadaistic "experiences" would have seemed simply impossible, and the sponsors would have been sent to the madhouse, while today they even preside in "artists" unions." This plague could not have appeared at that time, because neither would public opinion have suffered it nor would the State havelooked on quietly. For it is an affair of the State - that means of the government - to prevent a people from being driven into the arms of spiritual lunacy. For in lunacy such a development would end one day. For on the day that this kind of art were actually to correspond to the general conception, one of the most severe changes of mankind would have begun; the backward development of the human brain would have begun with this, but one would hardly be able to conceive the end." from Mein Kampf page 354
"Universal education is the most corroding and disintergrating poison that liberlism has ever invented". from Rauschning, The Voice of Destruction: Hitler Speaks
"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round". from Mein Kampf page 376
"Anyone who sees and paints a sky green and pastures blue ought to be sterilized" attributed to Hitler by Dorothy Thompson, N.Y. Post, Jan 3, 1944
