15. the party with whose petty representatives I had been carrying on the most violent struggle for months was, as to leadership, almost exclusively in the hands of a foreign people;
Adolf Hitler does hint that people who are from one’s own nation would be benevolent to the natives and the foreigners would be exploiters. The above sentence if taken in this minor context, is not true.
For instance, in the various disconnected locations inside the Indian peninsula region, both the native as well as foreign social dominators were not inclined to induce social development to the common masses in these places. There was only one exception and that was the English rulers. They acted in a most renegade manner to their own home nation, and disseminated the various knowledges of their native land to the people in the Indian peninsular area.
For a close look at what I speaking, I think I will insert an image from the realities of the Indian peninsular region. The image bespeaks the condition of the slightly lower castes of this area (North Malabar, part of the erstwhile Madras Presidency).
Image taken from Castes and tribes of Southern India by Edgar Thurston (1860s). The image of the labour class Marumakkathaya Thiyya caste female. It was not the dressing standards that oppressed them, but the crushing beat of the lower indicant words
I am inserting another image which I think can convey an idea of what was being given to local people of the lower classes by the English rulers. Even though the two pictures are not of the same persons, I hope to convey my contentions here.

16. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn’t help, they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes which, if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know exactly what you were talking about.
The above lines are connected to passages that describe certain exquisite experiences in verbal discussion. It is a common experience when one tries to debate with people much below one’s own level of intellect, who has a feeling of being an intellectual superior. In the case of Adolf Hitler, it led him to hate the Jews.
And it is quite incredible that he identifies Marxism as a cunning idea of the Jews. It is an idea that can literally give a shiver to all communists and Marxists all around the word.
17. I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
It is a strange argument that Adolf Hitler comes up with. His fight is against the Jews. Yet, how come he ended up fighting with even the English nations? The ways of inscrutable destiny is quite complicated indeed.
18. TODAY it is my conviction that in general, aside from cases of unusual talent, a man should not engage in public political activity before his thirtieth year.
There might be some correctness in these ideas. However, whether they can be true everywhere is not clear. Especially, when taking the case of the English Empire. For instance, Robert Clive was only around 25 years when he literally created the English Empire in some parts of the Indian peninsular region. At least some of the district administrators (District Collectors) in the English ruled parts of the Indian peninsula were only around sixteen years’ old English youngsters. Some of the English East India Company’s army Majors were also of that age.
However, command is generally connected to a positioning given in the language codes. In that sense, it is possible to assign command to any level of persons, even youngsters, of even lesser age. It is very much possible in the feudal languages of the Indian peninsula.
However, the English experience is different. And the English youngsters came from a social communication, in which there were no degrading or ennobling codes in common conversation. The experience of everyone in their command structure in the Indian peninsular region would be a sweet one.
However, the modern day native-English youngsters in England would be of a slightly different mental timbre. For, many of them would have experience of having studied under non-English teachers. Moreover, they would have studied along with students who are natives of feudal languages. Equalising native-English students with native feudal-language speaking students would erode the inner qualities of the former and rise up the inner qualities of the latter. In fact both would arrive at a medium level which is higher than that of the feudal language speakers and lower than the native-English speakers. It is a loss for antique England and a gain for extra-national elements.
19. Obviously the example of this body had been taken from England, the land of classical ‘democracy.
Here Adolf Hitler does admit that classical democracy came from England. It is a great admission which would be found objectionable in some nations like the nation of India. There are historians in India who would love to mention that the ideas of democracy were born in ‘India’, (there was no such ‘India’ before British-India!), and that the Englishmen stole even this idea from ‘India’. There are millions of school-textbook educated Indians willing to believe this nonsense.
20. When Barry raised his parliament buildings from the waters of the Thames, he thrust into the history of the British Empire and from it took the decorations for the twelve hundred niches, consoles, and pillars of his magnificent edifice. Thus, in their sculpture and painting, the House of Lords and the House of Commons became the nation’s Hall of Fame.
ENGLAND's antiquity is indeed great. It is quite curious that Adolf Hitler should exhibit a more than passing admiration to it.<
