[Underlined text: Morality] "Providence has ordained that I should be the greatest liberator of humanity. I am freeing man from the restraints of an intelligence that has taken charge; from the dirty and degrading self-mortification of a [chemical?] called conscience, and morality and from the demands of a freedom and personal independence which very few could bear." Hitler words See Erich Meissner, Confusion of Faces, pp. [page].118
