The World War ll House and Bunker of Joseph Goebbels

Joseph Goebbels,  Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945

"There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the **er, and this will always be "the man in the street." Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology." --Joseph Goebbels

    1. We would have missed out on Adenauer and Erhard and replaced them with the continuation of a paranoid, militarist, expansionist, racist junta. So I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion that Germany would still be the lynchpin of the Euro economy that it is today.
