1. Today I am firmly convinced that basically and on the whole all creative ideas appear in our youth, in so far as any such are present. I distinguish between the wisdom of age, consisting solely in greater thoroughness and caution due to the experience of a long life, and the genius of youth, which pours out thoughts and ideas with inexhaustible fertility, but cannot for the moment develop them because of their very abundance. It is this youthful genius which provides the building materials and plans for the future, from which a wiser age takes the stones, carves them and completes the edifice, in so far as the so-called wisdom of age has not stifled the genius of youth.

2. Often he has a wife and children at home. Sometimes they, too, are infected by this life, especially when the man is good to them on the whole and actually loves them in his own way. Then the weekly wage is used up by the whole family in two or three days; they eat and drink as long as the money holds out and the last days they go hungry. Then the wife drags herself out into the neighbourhood, borrows a little, runs up little debts at the food store, and in this way strives to get through the hard last days of the week. At noon they all sit together before their meagre and sometimes empty bowls, waiting for the next payday, speaking of it, making plans, and, in their hunger, dreaming of the happiness to come.
And so the little children, in their earliest beginnings, are made familiar with this misery.
It ends badly if the man goes his own way from the very beginning and the woman, for the children’s sake, opposes him. Then there is fighting and quarrelling, and, as the man grows estranged from his wife, he becomes more intimate with alcohol. He is drunk every Saturday, and, with her instinct of self-preservation for herself and her children, the woman has to fight to get even a few pennies out of him; and, to make matters worse, this usually occurs on his way from the factory to the barroom. When at length he comes home on Sunday or even Monday night, drunk and brutal, but always parted from his last cent, such scenes often occur that God have mercy!
I have seen this in hundreds of instances. At first I was repelled or even outraged, but later I understood the whole tragedy of this misery and its deeper causes. These people are the unfortunate victims of bad conditions!
Adolf Hitler’s reflections of lower middle-class life of his times in a feudal language continental European nation. In various photos, presented in this book, there is none that depicts the real life of the common folks of Germany.
3. Quarrelling and wrangling will very frequently arise as a result. In these circumstances, people do not live with one another, they press against one another.
Adolf Hitler has written a graphic account of life at the lower edges of the lower middle-class existence in his nation of his youthful days.
4. I painted to make a living and studied for pleasure.
Studies should be for pleasure. And if work could also be for pleasure, it would be a wonderful combination.
5. I know people who ‘read’ enormously, book for book, letter for letter, yet whom I would not describe as ‘well-read.’ True they possess a mass of ‘knowledge,’ but their brain is unable to organise and register the material they have taken in. They lack the art of sifting what is valuable for them in a book from that which is without value, of retaining the one forever, and, if possible, not even seeing the rest, but in any case not dragging it around with them as useless ballast.

6. For such a reader now believes himself in all seriousness to be ‘educated,’ to understand something of life, to have knowledge, while in reality, with every new acquisition of this kind of ‘education,’ he is growing more and more removed from the world until, not infrequently, he ends up in a sanatorium or in parliament.
There is a very apparent reflection of Adolf Hitler’s opinion on parliamentarians, in the above lines, even though the context is on learning.
7. On the other hand, a man who possesses the art of correct reading will, in studying any book, magazine, or pamphlet, instinctively and immediately perceive everything which in his opinion is worth permanently remembering, either because it is suited to his purpose or generally worth knowing.
On a mature readership.
8. The culturally superior, but less ruthless races, would in consequence of their limited soil, have to limit their increase at a time when the culturally inferior but more brutal and more natural peoples, in consequence of their greater living areas, would still be in a position to increase without limit. In other words: someday the world will thus come into possession of the culturally inferior but more active men.
I wrestled with my innermost soul: are these people human, worthy to belong to a great nation?

9. Not until my fourteenth or fifteenth year did I begin to come across the word ‘Jew,’ with any frequency, partly in connection with political discussions. This filled me with a mild distaste, and I could not rid myself of an unpleasant feeling that always came over me whenever religious quarrels occurred in my presence.
A Jewish infection on Germany and an infliction on Adolf Hitler’s mind.
10. The absurdity of this idea did not dawn on me because I saw no distinguishing feature but the strange religion.
Is there an absurdity in the strange claims of a few-peopled religion? Actually, to understand Jewish religion, it might necessary to study the inner codes of their traditional language. For, in the depth of the word codes, one might get to see a lot of hidden powers, links, cautions and much more. Without having any idea about these things, it might be quite criminal to be judgmental.
11. I was outraged that in a state where every idiot not only claimed the right to criticise, but was given a seat in the Reichstag and let loose upon the nation as a ‘lawgiver,’ the man who bore the imperial crown had to take ‘reprimands’ from the greatest babblers’ club of all time.
There are great lessons in the above text not for any nation other than England. One of the great antique traditions in this world is borne by the English monarchy. In many ways, the very existence of the English monarchy is a riddle and contradiction of what is the reality in most other nations. For, it is a monarchy sitting on top of a non-feudal language speaking population. In so much that, it cannot have much of the characteristic features of any nobility or kingship based on a feudal language social structuring.
Yet, the nonsense called democracy along with a huge content of swarmed in outsiders, has given the right to decry and denigrate the English monarchy to anyone. There is no understanding that the nation belong to the English monarchy, and it has the right to protect the nation from outsiders, which senseless democracy has allowed. However, the present reigning monarch was an imbecile who had no guts to kick out democracy far-off into the Arabian Sea near the Persian Gulf.
