CURRICULA AT TRUMP UNIVERSITY

Professors, con men and Trump’s uneducated supporters all want to know what was to be taught at Trump University. The big orange man has followed advice from one of his favorite mentors. “..the curriculum…. [of most schools] is a mongrel; in many cases the material to be learned in the various subjects is so swollen that only a fraction remains in the head of the individual pupil, and only a fraction of this abundance can find application…” Fragments of course descriptions from this newly created university have now been found and are published here for the first time.

I. HOW TO CLEAN TOILETS
Cleaning and shinning.
Anyone who has barfed into a toilet bowl knows the difference.
Cleaning: Establish that the surface is 100 percent, finger licking, palate cleansing tasty.
Shinning: Learn how to use the waste and excrement to enhance brightness so the
bowl is suitable for toilet licking crawlers.
Products that clean.
Products that shine.

II. EARTHQUAKES
Best products to survive in this natural disaster are wood and brush. Anyone ever hear of an Indian getting killed in an earthquake?

Indians get killed during earthquakes when they fall into cracks of the earth which open
up. Indians in Indonesia fall into cracks. Don Trump has seen it in the movies.

As many Indians have fallen into cracks in the Earth during earthquakes as there were
Muslims dancing in the streets of New Jersey on September 11, 2001. From that New
Jersey TV show, all Americans know that no one, Muslims or otherwise in that state, can dance.

III. LUNCH ROOM
Employees must eat. Look at Don Trump. He’s never missed a meal, a snack or a free donut. Have a room of vending machines, but only one microwave. Have plenty of chips and fructose sodas with caffeine – no use being politically correct about diet. Call fat, fat, not adipose. It’s done a lot for Don Trump. He’s sculpted with blubber. Charge for all the vending machine foods because no one wants to hire and provide health care for people who weight more than an manatee.

IV. SIGNAGE
Spend the most money on appearance, especially the outside of the building. A big sign with polished, blinding lights is alluring. Students will enter and explore hoping and believing glamour is big at the school, whereas the buildings are left-over quonset huts from World War Two. [It is easy to date those structures. The linoleum floors always warp at the same rate after 40 years.] But students, with an eye for glitz, kitsch, and bling never look down(and if they do they don’t believe their eyes).
V. ELEVATORS
Don Trump could not work without elevators. Spare no expense on them. When a firm has a loud-mouth, tub of lard, ball of fat, obese razorback, it needs a big box to lift that heft. Offset that girth by hiring pretty young things who weigh nothing because they are airheads. Don’t buy and use old equipment. It always breaks down, and it is impossible to leave by the escape holes. You’re stuck. Don Trump once was in an elevator, and he missed lunch and his warm milk and cookie afternoon snack brainfood. He fired his butler that day when he ate it.

VI. CLOTHES
Always wear clothes when closing a real estate deal, and never offer anyone the shirt off your back. Don Trump did that once because he owed money to the creep – it was that or hitchhike home. He now goes to Goodwill and buys cheap clothes and give those as shirts off his back. Women laughed at Don Tump that entire afternoon until a new shirt, made overseas someplace, came. He did not think he was funny. It was sexist! A girl he knew lost her pants and panties at the Woodstock Festival; she hitchhiked home without them and wearing nothing. No one laughed at her.

VII. WOMEN
Don Trump has to be hands on to teach women everything they know. How to be polite, pleasant and participatory in all situations. What to do to stop bleeding from orifices. Women have to learn to become hostesses, how to serve refreshments, how to wear make up [a subject Don Trump is expert about]. There are women who show up with all the proper attributes. Don Trump calls them squeeze bunnies.

VIII. MILITARY AND MAKE UP
Don Trump went to a militaristic, teutonic high school; he sympathizes with our veterans. His first policy initiative: Hand out lollipops. Sucking on hard candy in high school was so soothing, just like Mommy’s thumb. There was no PDST. He also felts like a transvestite or sometimes transgender. He wore and now wears more make up than those people do. He sometimes mix sexes. But he wants people to choose and identify themselves. He can’t make up his own mind. People have to tell who they are like Laverne of Laverne & Shirley. Laverne always wore an L on her top which could also represent lesbian.

IX. ROADS
Sell parcels and acreage of land that are not close to streets and roads. Showing it off by helicopter is best, especially if there’s a little two-laner in the distance that can be overused to develop an isolated tract. Don Trump believed this theory, and he did not know how much he was correct. Don Trump sold land for a far away getaway in nowhere to a stupid Mexican who did not know what he was doing. Don Trump made a profit. It was the second of two islands, stars in the sea. Since oil had taken a downturn, the Mexican hired drillship to bring in construction equipment and supplies. In six months he built 40 homes and created 20 other lots, homes in paradise, solar powered with enough water. He built a sea wall to stop global warming. Mexicans really know how to build walls and other things. The Mexican tripled his money in a year, but he had no imagination. There’s no golf course so the place is not first class.

X. RESET BUTTON
They are needed to stop something stupid you’re doing, and begin being refouled. I’ve tried to begin refreshed but it always smelt, and I don’t like to admit I’m wrong. I’m left dragging a sagging heritage of mush and trying to avoid the pitfalls that stinks up the campaign. Don Trump knows how to speak Mexican – burrito, taco, enchilada. That should satisfy everyone who’s going to build the wall. Don Trump can speak Canadian – Canuck and Potassic fertilizer. Every Canadian sings about such words. Although Don Trump will be refouled with his Reset, the Canadians will send a new supply of rapeseeds so he can mouth-off more.

XI. TALK


Talk is cheap. This is true but never admit it. Talk can be expensive. Suppose a house is appraised during a divorce (Don Trump had had two divorces so he knows what he is talking about. There will be a third if Heidi Klum or Megyn Kelly show up.) During the appraisal Don Trump greeted the idiot appraiser, and talked down the property making it worthless. Only devalue the property if you’re going to receive it.
Talking is the most effective way to persuade. Don’s most favorite political adviser notes:
Particularly the broad masses of the people can be moved only by the power of speech. And all great movements are popular movements, stirred either by the cruel Goddess of Distress or by the firebrand of the word hurled among the masses; they are not the lemonade-like outpourings of literary aesthetes and drawing room heroes.
Only a storm of hot passion can turn the destinies of peoples, and he along can arouse passion who bears it within himself.
It alone gives its chosen one the words which like hammer blows can open the gates to the heart of the people.

NO CHAPPEDASS

Message to all the “Republican” elites throwing in for Hillary, boasting they’ll stay home instead of vote because their particular weakened good ol’ boy is not the GOP nominee (the R.A.T.s suffering chappedass because their power and purse are threatened by the grassroots movement to destroy their failed politics-as-usual). These lines of foolishness come from Sarah Palin yesterday or today.

Chappedass is a word new to me. Anyone with a chapped butt is pathetic. This word in these times comes from Sarah Palin who apparently is suffering from chappedass from her family – it’s has been a long haul being cooped up with the family and relatives over the Alaskan Winter. Rats in the septic tank haven’t helped. The local police reports sometimes makes the national news. Fox News has not rehired her. This year Sarah Palin has made a break, dodged everyone and abandoned the losers. She’s sprouting a tan.

There is no reason why other Americans should suffer from chapped ass, more than usual, by voting for the wrong guy as President. Admittedly this man has money, yet he speaks like he’s a drug user: grass speed, acid was the refrain he heard when young, and he speaks like grass, speed and aside are now affecting him. I hope that tennis serving machine on his court is served by a unsecured server than an insecure server.

Americans don’t need to get chappedass in any greater intensities. Americans are already getting it from their children. Just as Sarah.

BLOATED AIRHEAD

Campaign 2016. Raise an issue as a headline. One headline is USA debt. It’s a lot. Everyone knew that long before the election began. Next headline, change tax plans.

One bloated mind is unwilling and incapable of speaking intelligently about anything beyond repetition. The reason for lack of understanding is the bloated brain has a head of air – yes, the good old airhead. This candidate says he’s huge, read bloated.

The airhead fumbles while trying to amplify the headline, but no use listening. No use repeating the same thing, again, again, and again, three times in a minute. The public needs facts to be repeated. They don’t need to be a laughing stock and corrected by Democrats in their company when they repeat the party line: I was critical of women because no painted ladies smiled my way. The public needs facts, logic and reason rather than the lies, obstinacy and misstatement of a bloated old airhead.

Many candidates talk to citizens presenting their cases why they should be nominated as the party’s candidate. They don’t rely on headlines, on cliches, slogans, folk sayings and homilies. They discuss policies and programs and explain why one approach is better than another. In this way politicians reveal themselves as human beings. But the bloated airhead has ordered people from campaign events: “Get her out of here. I know she’s a ten and justifiably evaluates my misuse of cosmetics, my over-use of hair spray, my donning ill-fitting clothes and my carrying excess blubber.” (“I’m frustrated. After Christmas I couldn’t get into my clothes. They had to be taken out and more material needed tailoring because I overate and gained 20 pounds. I hate to exercise. My double chin became bigger and bigger obliterating the double chin and becoming an extra neck, like I’m storing snacks there.”)

The bloated airhead has never felt more confident. All his sycophants drool over his every move. Everyone knows his name, and no one trusts him. Everyone knows Hilary, and no one trusts her, either. Everyone has an idea who Bill and Hilary are, but no one knows who the hell the bloated airhead is. The American people may have to spring for the devil they know rather than the terror lurking in and descending from some far away, high up executive suit: Every day he demonstrates he hates people; he detests critics; he loathes criticism; he only likes to talk to people who are elites; he likes persons around him who say yes to every whim; he does not listen; he knows the headline for everything or something close but knows no details, specifics or background knowledge. [He knew Paris was once part of Germany, his homeland uber alles, but he does not know the Germans lost the European part of World War Two, so the French now have it.]

The Presidency is not an on-the-job training program; the bloated airhead is too fat for the position. But he can not be fired, terminated or liquidated if elected, only impeached. It is best to avoid the airhead on any ballot.

AMERICAN LITERATURE

About a month ago I read a blog by a frustrated writer who would read no more. She had purchased a recently highly praised novel by a young American novelist. The blogger quoted the first paragraph of the novel; one sentence seem to run an entire paragraph. Obviously someone was trying to save on confusion and annoyances of periods.

I started the first sentence, an enormity of one disconnected sentence attached to another by commas and eventually the author or her editor, or the publisher who was paying by-the-word stopped printing the subject of each clause and frequently dispersed with the verb, leaving prepositional phrases abandoned, and floating adjectives and wandering adverbs heading off to the new planet in the solar system. Obviously, the adverbs and the adjectives don’t know where they’re going because no one knows where the new planet is. For the reader everything is as clear as mud.

I stopped reading. There is a literary movement afoot to make American more like Latin, German and Russian, without the excess declensions, specialized prepositions and multiple conjugations along with a fondness for the subjunctive where it’s not needed. In fact any language with declensions and conjugations up the wazoo provides a model for New York publishers and editors. Thereupon, all the authors pretend learnedness to be pretentious. Remember each of them have inked deals with Mephistopheles.

My analysis of the current American language in novels is correct. I did not appreciate it until reading Mein Kampf, this Spring. The translator, Konrad Heiden, observed about the German work,

Most of Hitler’s stylistic peculiarities represent no problem for the translator. The
mixed metaphors are just as mixed in one language as in the other. A lapse of
grammatical logic can occur in any language. An English-language Hitler might be
just as reductant as the German one; a half-educated writer, without clear ideas,
generally feels that to say a thing only once is rather slight.
There are, however, certain traits of Hitler’s style that are peculiarly German and
do present a problem in translation. Chief among these are the length of sentences,
the substantives, and the German particles.
A translation must not necessarily be good English, but it must be English such as
some sort of English author – in this case, let us say, a poor one – might write. On the
other hand, it would be wrong to make Hitler an English-speaking rabble-rouser,
because his very style is necessarily German.
No non-German would write such labyrinthine sentences. The translator’s last – often a feat of tightrope-walking – is to render the ponderousness and even convey a German flavor, without writing German-American sentences. In general I have cut down the sentences only when the length made them unintelligible in English. (The German language with its cases and genders does enable the reader to find his way though tangles which in a non-inflected language would be inextricable.) Contrary to the general opinion, the German text contains only one or two sentences that make no sense at first reading.
The substantives are a different matter. Here it has been necessary to make greater
changes, because in many cases the use of verbal nouns is simply incompatible with the English language. No pedant, no demagogue, no police clerk writes that way. I have used the construction where it seemed conceivable in English, elsewhere reluctantly abandoned it. German stylists may say that Hitler’s piling up of substantives is bad German, but the fact remains the most numerous German writers do that same thing, while this failing is almost non-existent in English.
In approaching Hitler’s use of particles, it must be remembered that he was at home in the Lower Bavarian dialect. Even without the dialect, much German prose, some not of the worst quality, abounds in those useless little words: wohl, ja, dean, schon, noch, eigentlich, etc. The South Germans are especially addicted to them, and half of Hilter’s sentences are positively clogged with particles, not to mention such private favorites as besonders and damals which he stews about quite needlessly. His particles even have a certain political influence, for in the petit bourgeois mind they are, liked carved furniture, an embodiment of the home-grown German virtues, while their avoidance is viewed with suspicion as foreign and modernistic. There are no English equivalents, and an attempt to translate them results in something like the language of the Katzenjammer Kids. Sometimes, however, it is possible to give a similar impression of wordiness by other means.

The translation follows the first edition. The most interesting changes made in the later German editions have been indicated in the notes. Where Hitler’s formulations challenge the reader’s credulity, I have quoted the German original in the notes. Seeing is believing.

Likewise, American novels, published recently, are actually translations drawn from more ancient, clumsy, illogical, word-favoring languages. That is the state of American literature today. Seeing is believing.

MEIN KAMPF – RACE

Adolph is devoted to ancient rituals, science and theology. Anthropology declares there are distinctions among nationalities. Although they all look the same, Pole supposedly are Slavs; Germans are Teutons, although their stock came from the Ukraine and central Asia. Note the Germans tribe opposing the Romans during the Classical era moved: the Lombards to Italy, the Franks to France, the Visigoths to Spain. According to Adolph those persons are not German and not even Teutonic. The English became a mix of peoples: Britons, Celts, Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Norsemen.

In Mein Kampf Adolph tells readers only Germans are Germans: “…it is a scaredy conceivable fallacy of thought to believe that a Negro or a Chinese … will turn into a German because he learns German and is willing to speak the German language in the future and perhaps even give his one vote to a German political party. That any such Germanization is in reality a de-Germanization never become clear to our bourgeois national world. For if today, by forcing a universal language on them, obvious differences between different peoples are bridge over and finally effaced, this means the beginning for a bastardization, and hence in our case not a Germanization but a destruction of the German element.” (Page 388, 389; see also, 438-39)

It came to pass that Don Trump trumpeted this favorite passage from Mein Kampf: Persons of Mexican parents were not American, although born in Indiana. All Americans reject Adolph’s view of Neanderthal anthropology. Americans can ask themselves, how have the mongrel populations done in mano-e-mano showdowns against the PURE? Just after Pearl Harbor, Americans believed Americans of Japanese descent were not American. We put most of the West Coast population into concentration camps. How did the Japanese-Americans react? They joined the Army and went to war.

How did the mongrels speaking English, fully accustomed to American life and following American ways do against the race of supermen, racial superior, he-men pure and inbred? No contest: The Japanese-Americans kicked German butts into the fatherland and beyond. The U.S. Army 442 is the most heavily decorated division in army history. The Japanese-Americans affirmed citizenship for themselves and their families 73 years ago, and for other sons from countries and their families contributing to our war efforts.

And Don Trump? He should come into the Twenty-First Century rather than hold and defend social norms and ideals prevalent in American between World War One and Two.

MEIN KAMPF – AVERAGE JOHANN

Adolph did not think much of his followers: Scum recurs in the text; weakling is another word. Adolph wants his followers to be disciples, not of a brotherhood where consent, love and goodness are controlling behaviors. He demands his followers be intolerant, violent and brutal especially to everyone who disagrees with them or who does not look like them.

...the masses are slow moving and they always require a certain time before they are ready, even to notice a thing, and only after the simplest ideas are repeated a thousand times will be masses finally remember them.(page 185)
On top of this there is the fact that the mass of people as such is lazy; … they remain inertly the spirit of their old habits (page 470)
At night…they will succumb more easily to the dominating force of a stronger will.
…mysterious twilight in Catholic churches, the burning of lamps, incense,
goal of oratory is “illiterate common people.”(page 475)

I cannot think why any human being or a group of human beings would follow, except Adolph is correct. Human beings are group animals. We live together in families, clans, neighborhoods, villages, towns, cities, regions, states and nations. Most people like to feel part of something, trusting on friendship alone, believing in a similar set of ideas that once made sense but are not completely reasoned, hoping unity of community action will bring about changes. People sometimes invest together.
Adolph may believe that all human beings need leading, but he is wrong. He could lead no more than one-third of the German nation to vote for him, yet he became dictator. How that happened is a failure of the German people and its government. They viewed politics as a combination of physical and psychological forces in which they did not want to participate. The Nazis themselves were boisterous as a tactic to confine, eliminate speech and communication and drown the opposition. Nazi opponents who allowed the Nazis to act thusly (yet fund them) forsook rights to communicate opinions, the nature of their expression and demonstrate their presence on Earth. Perhaps it was easier to go to the opera or symphony that night than to stand against Adolph..
Adolph dusted away all gratitude to party adherents as he ascended in the hierarchy. He considered many competing, compelling leaders enemies during the 1920s and early 1930s. They were not the common people; few of them died of old age in their beds. Adolph compelled all Germans to accept Nazi politics after April 1934. He killed a bunch of Nazis during the night of the long knives in June 1934.
Mein Kampf and the Nazi approach to the individual loses the human element. The low-down German is the hero someone who can be idolized. But look closer and those low-down Germans (scum, weaklings, illiterate common people) do not exist. They are ignored. No one in power who wants to deal with such low beings, lowlifes.

Instead, the low-down German is always mentioned and is never identified. He becomes a marketing force on which the Party can concentrate. Yet none of the party policies will benefit the low-down German, except to make his life worse. He is forgotten; he is a loser.
Adolph took power in 1933, and five years later took steps toward War. 1939 Berlin was unlike 1914 Berlin, despite the Nazi hype. In 1914 there was dancing in the streets when War was announced. 1939 Berliners merely went about their business without demonstrating approval.
1945 was a crushing blow to all Germans. Low-down Germans had much company, where the Nazis intended all citizens to be.

The lesson from Adolph and his outcome is elections are like marriages. You may have to live with decisions of another person the remainder of your life. Before trusting anyone with a vote and consenting to policies, study, learn, know, realize and if possible like the individual receiving the vote. Citizens should look at actions and words, not yesterday’s speeches, but last month’s, six months ago, a year back. In Adolph’s case how will he help the average low-down German? Heft, consider and judge everything, and decide. Nothing in Adolph’s record suggested Adolph gave a hoot about any single low-down German.

MEIN KAMPF – Propaganda

In a presentable way Adolph relays two areas of this book providing excellent detail and precise analysis of the issues. Propaganda is one issue. The text says it best:

The function of propaganda does not lie in the scientific training of the individual, but in calling the masses’ attention to certain facts, processes, necessities, etc., whose significance is thus for the first time placed within their field of vision.(page. 179)
The whole art consists of doing this so skillfully that everyone will be convinced that the fact is real, the process necessary, the necessity correct, etc. But since propaganda is not and cannot be the necessity itself, since its foundation, like the poster, consists in attracting the attention of the crowd, endnote in education those who are already educated or who are striving after education and knowledge, its effect for the most part must be aimed at the emotions and only a very limited degree at the so-called intellect.
All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be…
The more modest its intellectual ballast, the more exclusively it takes into consideration the emotions of the masses, the more effective it will be…
The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses.
The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on those in slogans (page 180)
until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. (page 181)
[T]he most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless on fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.(page 184)
…the masses are slow moving and they always require a certain time before they are ready, even to notice a thing, and only after the simplest ideas are repeated a thousand times will be masses finally remember them.
When there is a change, it must not alter the content of what the propaganda is driving at, but in the end must always say the same thing. …the slogan itself…(page 185)

Once the propaganda serves its purpose and a following and organization may ensue, propaganda continues as the primary means to communicate between the leadership and the little people. Adolph gives many paragraphs describing propaganda and its purposes (p. 580-596), but it is speculation. Adolph does not know how effective propaganda is. This book was written in 1924, four years before the Nazis had any sort of electoral success as a minority party. They never became a majority party by an election.
Adolph violates one of this primary rules here. He drifts into theory, mind-bending speculation about what might happen. The actual events in Germany from 1925-1933 differ widely from the theorems Adolph offers. At best he describes measures that may lead to a successful advertising campaign.

MEIN KAMPF – Adolph on Oratory

When writing about orators and how to reach the audience, Adolph is clearly writing about himself as a younger man addressing small meetings but not speaking to large rallies. He didn’t have those opportunities when this book was published, so his comments are inapplicable to mass meetings. Adolph knew the substance of this subject matter expertly. He watches the audience, small gatherings, larger assemblies. In some way Adolph is also telling rivals in the Nazi movement that they cannot communicate as well as he does. Mein makes pronouncements: Adolph has worked very hard to get where he is. No one else has the talent to carry on to larger forums.

It is not our duty to inform all weaklings that this is a question of to be or not to be.
I achieved an equal understanding of the importance of physical terror toward the individual and the masses.
Here, too, the psychological effect can be calculated with precision.
Terror at the place of employment, in the factory, in the meeting hall, and on the occasion of mass demonstrations will always be successful unless opposed by equal terror.(page 44)

I understood the infamous spiritual terror, which this movement exerts, particularly on the bourgeois, which is neither morally more mentally equal to such attacks; at a given sign it unleashes a veritable barrage of lies and slanders against whatever adversary seems most dangerous, until the nerves of the attacked persons break down and, just to have peace again, they sacrifice the hated individual.
….the fools obtain no peace,(page 43)

The psyche of the great masses is not receptive to anything that is half-hearted and weak.
Like the woman whose psychic state is determined less by grounds of abstract reason rather than by an indefinable emotional longing for a force which will complement her nature, and who,
consequently would rather bow to a strong man than dominate a weakling, likewise the masses love a commander more than a petitioner and feel inwardly more satisfied by a doctor…, tolerating no other beside itself, than by the granting of liberalistic freedom with which, as a rule, they can do little, and are prone to feel the they have been abandoned. They are equally unaware of their shameless spiritual terrorization and the hideous abuse of their human freedom for they absolutely fall to suspect the inner insanity of the whole doctrine. All they see is the ruthless..(page 42)

“Particularly the broad masses of the people can be moved only by the power of speech. And all great movements are popular movements, stirred either by the cruel Goddess of Distress or by the firebrand of the word hurled among the masses; they are not the lemonade-like outpourings of literary aesthetes and drawing room heroes.
Only a storm of hot passion are turn the destinies of peoples, and he alone can arouse passion who bears it within himself.
It alone gives its chosen one the words which like hammer blows can open the gates to the heart of the people.
But the man whom passion fails and whose lips are sealed – he has not been chosen by Heaven to proclaim its will.
…the writer remains by his ink-well, engaging in theoretical activity, if his intelligence and ability are equal to it; for leadership he is neither born nor chosen.
A movement with great aims must therefore be anxiously on its guard not to lose contact with the broad masses.
It must examine every question primarily from this standpoint and make its decisions accordingly.
It must….avoid everything which might diminish or even weaken its ability to move the masses, not for the demagogic reasons, but in the simple knowledge … without the mighty force of the mass of a people, no great idea, however lofty and noble it may seem, can be realized. (page 107)

In essence Adolph admits he is establishing a group using terror and violence to extend its reach. Adolph’s organization is no different from many crime schemes and enterprises operating in the United States. But they are prohibited by laws. Many state laws forbid behaviors and actions. At the Federal level RICO, criminal and civil enforcement, prohibit the illegal acts by which the Nazis rose.

The orator and the leader are the same person, and to spotlight that human being, he is the personality using mysterious powers. He establishes personal connections with the faithful; he has mastered the communication to lead the nation from its slump; he will make Germany Great Again. [Nobody ever explained how Germany could be Great Again, when its University system was deprived of its best minds: USA 10 – Germany 0.]

…if he is a brilliant popular orator and not be likely to repeat the same reproach and the same substance in the same form. He will always let himself be borne by the great masses in such a way to speak to the hearts of his audience. And if he errs, in the slightest, he has the living correction before him. As I have said, he can read from the facial expression of his audience whether, firstly, they understand what
he is saying, whether, secondly they can follow the speech as a whole, and to what extent, thirdly he has convinced them of the soundness of what he has said.(page 470-471)

Once again Adolph slams the simpleminded, gullibility of his followers. They are to think nothing but ponder emotions he has given them. The followers seem to have no emotions, hopes and aspirations of their own, so they need him to supply both brain and heart. It is an orator alone and no other person communicating who can tell people what to think and what and how to believe.

…it is not seldom a question of overcoming prejudices which are not based on real, but, for the most part unconsciously, are supported only by sentiment. To overcome this barrier of instinctive aversion, of emotional hatred, of prejudiced rejection, is a thousand times harder than to correct a faulty of erroneous scientific opinion. False concepts and poor knowledge can be eliminated by instruction, the resistance of the emotions never. Here only an appeal to those mysterious powers themselves can be effective; and the writer can hardly ever accomplish his, but almost exclusively the orator.(page 471)

The movement must promote respect for personality by all means; it must never forget that in personal with lies the worth of everything human; that every idea and every achievement is the result of one man’s creative force and that the admiration of greatness constitutes, not one a tribute of thanks to the later, but casts a unifying bond around the grateful.
Personality cannot be replaced; especially when it embodies not the mechanical but the cultural and creative element….[a great statesman can not be replaced] “For activity lies always in the province of art. It is not mechanically trained, but inborn by God’s grace.”
The greatest revolutionary changes and achievements of this earth, its greatest cultural achievements, the immortal deeds in the field of statesmanship, etc, are forever inseparably bound up with a name and are represented by it. To renounce doing homage to a great spirit means the loss of an immense strength…. (page 352)

…Certain ideas and even tied up with certain men. This applies most of all to those ideas whose contents originates, not in a scientific truth, but in the world of emotion, or as it is beautifully and clearly expressed today, reflects an “inner experience.” All those ideas, which have nothing to do with cold logic as such, but represent only pure expressions of feelings, ethical conceptions, etc, are chained to the existence of men, to whose intellectual imagination and creative power (page 287)

When should the leader, the orator, the personality reach his followers and gather more disciples? At night when men are tired, looking for relaxation and looking forward to the morning. (page 472-475) Adolph gives examples from the Theater, and notes the better reception to plays at night. Adolph likes the lure and setting of the nighttime services in the Catholic church, mysterious twilight, strategic use of fire. Given the correct stimuli a human being, usually “illiterate common people,” can feel transported to the proper state of mind.

It is entirely possible that Adolph before World War One attempted to act in the theater, or he took lessons.
