nothing new under the sun...

The psychologist Gudrun Brockhaus makes ...[this]... confession: `I did not realize that many things close to my heart had Nazi roots. That my favourite children's book were written by convinced Nazis, that the uncompromising nature of the 1968 student movement had Nazi precedents, that the feminist slogan of the 1970s "The private is political" stemmed from Nazi times, that current psychotherapeutic terms referring to authority and completeness were first defined in text books published in 1934.'

More: ecological principles espoused by the present day environmentalist parties were first mooted by the constructors of the autobahns. The German fitness cult deploys the same terms and methods as the Nazi body culture movement. The taste for natural medicine, for the occult; the fascination for extreme sport, for speed, for technological gimmickry: all this has strong echoes of the Third Reich. The millennium experience deigned for Gerany as the as the New Year’s Eve 2000 event was an elaborate light show that directly copied the light "architecture” of Albert Speer.
