La madre del cordero

Orwell, reseñando el Mein Kampf, le da la razón a Hitler en algo elemental, tan elemental que tendemos a olvidarlo. Pero lo cierto es que Hitler creció en algo que no era el hitlerismo:

"The fact is that there is something deeply appealing about him. […] Hitler … knows that human beings don’t only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades. However they may be as economic theories, Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life."
