Hermann Goering The Nazi

(Goering on how to get the citizens of a country to support an unpopular war)    

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

Chance: Hermann Goering was second in command of nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler appointed him to this position. Goering was born January 12, 1893 and died on October 15, 1946 he was a member of the nazi party, and second in command of the Third Reich. He was a German politician and military leader too. Goering was also the commander of the Luftwaffe; the Luftwaffe was the German air force. In World War I (world war one) he was a pilot and he flew bombing and reconnaissance missions for the air force (Luftwaffe).

He was tried for war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg Trials in 1945-1946 and sentenced to death by hanging, however, he escaped the hangman’s noose around two hours before his scheduled execution by way of a potassium cyanide capsule (suicide, it is believed  that an American  soldier who was  guarding Germain war criminals gave Goering the capsule). He was of aristocratic heritage and a war hero of World War I, having won the coveted Pour le Mérite.  He was called fat Hermann because he put on a lot of weight he enjoyed eating and Hermann Goering (suicide in his jail cell)parting.  

Goering and Prison (in German his name is spelled Hermann Wilhelm Göring)

This photo of Goering was taken after he committed suicde in his jail cell.
Goering implied that the citizens of any country can be tricked by their leaders into supporting a war even if the people don’t want war.   

"Hermann Goering’s last days were spent with Gustave Gilbert, a German-speaking intelligence officer and psychologist who was granted free access by the Allies to all the prisoners held in the Nuremberg
jail. Gilbert kept a journal of his observations of the proceedings and his conversations with the prisoners, which he later published in the book Nuremberg Diary. The following quote was a part of a conversation Gilbert held with a dejected Hermann Goering in his cell on the evening of 18 April 1946, as the trials were halted for a three-day Easter recess.

Gustave Gilbert wrote:  Sweating in his cell in the evening, Goering was defensive and deflated and not very happy over the turn the trial was taking. He said that he had no control over the actions or the defense of the Hermann Goeringothers, and that he had never been anti-Semitic himself, had not believed these atrocities, and that several Jews had offered to testify in his behalf… Later in the conversation, Gilbert recorded Goering’s observations that the common people can always be manipulated into supporting and fighting wars by their political leaders."

Below is the complete quote by Hermann Goering about how to get the citizen of a country to support a war, with a comment by Gilbert that occurred midway through it:

"Nazi leader Hermann Goering, interviewed by Gustave Gilbert during the Easter recess of the Nuremberg trials, 1946 April 18, quoted in Gilbert’s book ‘Nuremberg Diary.’

Goering: Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece.

Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or
a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Goering: Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

Chance: Long after Goering’s death in many countries around the world we can clearly see that no matter whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship, the citizens have often been tricked into supporting wars they don’t want. This shows the intelligence and military capabilities of Goering it also reveals that he had a deep insight into the collective psychology of the citizens.

In this 21st century in the United States Of America President George W. Bush has used Goering’s method of inciting the citizens of America to go and pursue an unpopular war. And the Americans who disagree with the war are called pacifists and are disliked by Bush’s supporters. If President George W. Bush wanted to defeat terroristsHermann Goering in airplane in their own countries, he should have thought out a better plan because invading these third world Muslin countries has proved disastrous for the American military. The American military looks weak because the insurgents (terrorists) keep planting bombs in various places and our military soldiers are being killed — and the majority of the time the insurgents who did this get way. If things keep going the way they have been going in Iraq and other Muslim countries America that America is at war with. This will cause an alliance between China and the Muslims — therefore, America will end up fighting China also. The Chinese army is very powerful and America will end up on the loosing side just like Germany lost during world war II.   

Hermann Goering was a Nazi leader, but at the sametime he was very intelligent when it came to showing how to get the people of a country to go along with war even when they didn’t want war. The Propaganda of denouncing pacifists as traitors and weaklings puts fear in the hearts of the people who agree with those who criticize the leaders for pulling the citizens into needless wars. It is said that, you can learn something from anyone this includes Hermann Goering.

    Chance! NEWSFLASH!:

    The Nazis have built an INCREDIBLY extensive WikiSystem:

    which is being extended into Stormfront Forums:

    @ Le Chef,

    WOW! these Nazis are showing how dedicated they are to their cause by doing this, thanks for sharing this information and links. They are building a library for their followers complete with articles. Thanks for shring this info.

    I’m sharing this info. with Allies globally! The FRENCH & SPANISH are particularly intense!

    I find myself in disagreement. Bush has not used Goering’s method. We must be good student’s of history. Bush was between a rock and a hard place. He had to take decisive action. There was a little thing called 9-11. Remember more people died on 9-11 than died at Pearl Harbor, which thrust us into a world war.

    Further, by the rules of war, the Japanese played fair. They attacked a military target. Unfortunately, they blew the official declaration of war to our governmentdue to a mistake. The declaration was coded at the highest level. It was beyond the level of the translators that decoded messages on a daily basis. The highest ranking persons able to receive the message were not up to par with their decoding skills and were therefore late delivering the declaration to our government. This made the Japanese look like sneaking backstabbers.

    The World Trade Center by the accepted international standards of war was not a legitimate target. It was a civilian office building. Also individuals do not declare war on countries. Do you remember the reason for his attack? He attacked because during Gulf War 1, the U.S., with permission from the Saudi Government, based forces within the country. Bin Laden, a mere citizen, took offense with an entire country and vowed revenge. He is an arrogant, pompous – fool.

    The absolute best way to keep Bin Laden and his buddies from attacking you on Main Street U.S.A., is by keeping him running for his life in his own backyard! He has limited resources and in no way approaches the power of a nation to “Project Force”.

    If you look at history we know that an elite, powerful military can conquer a nation in short order. Look at Germany and France in WW2. Germany took France in days. However, the Germans were never able to defeat the partisans fighting as the ‘Free French’. An insurgency can be carried on by unbelievably small units. It can literally take as few as one or two people to plant a bomb that may destroy several vehicles and kill 10 men.

    By the time of detonation the insurgents may be 12 hours away. How do you find them? Another thing you must remember is that we are not engaged in a “Total War”. Where everything and everyone is a viable target.

    China: There is absolutely no way in this life or the next that China will be forming major alliances with Muslim nations to the detriment of the U.S.A.. Have you forgotten, China is a communist nation. As such it does not believe in religion. Why would it align itself with religious fanatics? Further, economics! China is in love with all those billions (With a ‘B’) of U.S. dollars heading it’s way. Look at the recent toy recall. Most U.S. toys are made in China. The dog food scare. Basic ingredients for the majority of the dog food manufactured in the U.S. comes from China. For China to allign with Muslim Nations means forgoing all those lucrative American markets. China only recently acquired “Most Favored Nation Status” with us. Bottomline: China wants and needs to be on excellent terms with us just as we want and need to be on excellent terms with them.

    We must be good student’s of history.

    Very True! Kudos to Chance for this Forum!

    @ Mel & Vanilla Phoenix

    My response: As time goes on china will increase in military, economic, and global power they will become more and more of a challenge to America. Yes we are semi buddy buddy right now but as time moves forward at the rate China is increasing economically, educationally, and militarily china will pass America as the number one super power. This can clearly be seen by observing both countries economically and militarily. The continuing rise of China will eventually force America to become more fearful of China, and the Chinese will become more public with their disagreements with America on various issues. China will no longer fear America the way it did in the past, and this will cause china to openly (publicly) do as it feels and please throughout the world — even if America request china not to do this or that or get involved with this or that situation. America will understand that if china is not dealt with and taught to fear and respect America other countries will loose respect for America and do as they please without caring what America thinks.

    When a war breaks out between America and china the Muslims will be involved and will be allies with China to fight against America, Europe, and their allies. All countries that become super powers become enemies especially if they countries are in different parts of the world (east and west). Right now China and America are semi friends because it benefits both but when China no longer needs this relationship and secure economically enough to the point were other countries look for financial help from China the way they do from America China will show America a more defiant attitude.

    Herman Goering was also very pro animal rights issuing laws and banning experimentation on animals. Goering even sent a nasty fisherman who was cutting up a bait frog to a concentration camp. “And so I hereby confine to a concentration camp anyone who would treat a animal as a inanimate object. Because of this and because there were cases in the Holocaust of Goering hiding jews from his fellow Nazis. I think its safe to say Herman Goering was one of the least evil of the Nazis.
