To lake one of these speeches and rend il cure- fully, sentence by, sentence, is always absorbing, especially it one has previously heard the speech delivered in tli!U hysterical, emotional voice, tuned with .stibii Thespian precision to produce tlie desired eft'eets. Th v e iDiiiizijj spe'eeh, aimed obviously at shaking British' and French cleter- ' ruination f as well as at convincing his own people that any general war would be forced on him by British and Freticl) , relentlcssncAs, was about the best con- ceivilb'le slaiement of Hitler's case; its general phases have already been commented upon, But here is a passage that, really deserves special attention : "In democracies one may agitate for war, (here foreign regimes, statesmen, and heads of slate may bo attacked, slandered and viliiied, for there freedom of speech aiid press reign. . "In authoritarian slates one may not offer resistance against that, for there discipline rules, and only in slates without discipline is it accordingly permissible lo t»."jrHnlo for- war." If these statements were (rue, it , would certainly make a powerful case • for a "disciplined press!" Perhaps as they were shouted in a rapid-lire/ and hysterical ' voice, they •ssounded plausible enough. Certainly the ivponiibil- ' - ity of agitating for war should not be assumed lightly. But the moment, yon read them in cold print, you realixe Hint these words not otiiy are untrue, but thu prccisu opposite is the case. There is certainly some truth in the charge^ that the press in democratic countiie.s has often, with some violence, criticized the totalitarian regimes and their leaders. But they have never done so with one-tenth the vigor wilh which the German press aswiilccl Soviet Russia for 10 years, taking their cue from Hitler's own words, "We must never forget, that I he regents of present-day Russia are common bloodstained criminals; that here is the scum of humanity, which, favored by conditions in a tragic hour, butchered and rooted out millions of its leading intellects with savage bloodthirstincss ... a nation which combines a rare mixture of bestial horror with an inconceivable gift for lyiiifr . . ."

If you take pride away from them they're licked. Bill was never licked.
