Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” makes obvious that the idea of fighting is crucial for his ideology: Fighting secures the continued xistence and progress of mankind. Ideologies such as Marxism on the other hand, which try to abandon fighting, are the cause of the decline and fall of mankind. Hitler’s own fight was directed against Marxism and its – alleged – Jewish originators. This requires the melting of the people into a fighting community – this provided the basis for Hitler’s programme of Gleichschaltung” and the inner homogenisation of the German nation.
