Nature is cruel; therefore we are also entitled to
be cruel. When I send the flower of German youth into the steel hail of
the next war without feeling the slightest regret over the precious German
blood that is being spilled, should I not also have the right to eliminate
millions of an inferior race that multiplies like vermin?
