Political Philosopher Carl Schmitt Joins Nazi Party, Swears Allegiance to Adolf Hitler Hot

Carl Schmitt, a leading political philosopher in Germany whose ideas are instrumental to those trying to justify the Nazi rise to power, formally joins the Nazi Party and swears personal allegiance to Adolf Hitler.

Schmitt will praise the cleansing of Germany of Jewish influences:

"Writing in German does not make Jewish authors German any more than counterfeit German money makes the forger German."

Schmitt looks forward to a new German age with the

"purification of public life of all non-Aryan, essentially foreign elements so that ...coming generations of Germans will be pure. ... No alien type can interfere with this great and profound, but also inner — I would almost say intimate — process of growth. ...

Our most important task is to learn how to distinguish friend from enemy."
