SINCE my return to England I have thought long and carefully concerning the great power that is asserting itself beyond the Rhine, and I have come to the conclusion that the domestic affairs of the German people ought to be regarded as their own private business. We do not hear of the Führer entering on a crusading campaign to bring the whole world into the folds of the true faith of National Socialism. He is no proselytiser. There is nothing evangelical about the Nazi movement. No Internationale has been devised to preach the gospel abroad, and in this respect it is unlike the rival faith of Moscow which admittedly is aiming at world revolution. Loose thinking has led a great number of people to believe that all forms of the authoritative state are Fascist. Few take the trouble to define Fascism or remember that the very name is derived from a group of Italian ex-service men who formed a party under Mussolini to combat growing disorder in the city of Milan. Fascism as interpreted in modern Rome bears no resemblance to the National Socialism of Berlin, with the reservation that in both countries personal authority has replaced Parliamentary dilatoriness. Although many may sneer when I say it, I maintain that Germany is rapidly arriving at a form of Socialist state that is really capable of being worked and which is bringing security and content to tens of millions. The dictionary definition of socialism states that it is a doctrine in which the political and economic organisation of society should be based on the subordination of the individual to the interests of the community, involving the collective ownership of the resources and instruments of production. If any such m ovement is taking place anywhere it is taking place in Germany.
