Note 004
by Joachim C. Fest

The text reads in context:

'One of the best means of preparation for a new and bolder life is to be found in the annihilation of the values of the free-floating and autocratic spirit, in the destruction of the standards which the bourgeois age has laboured to impart to man ... The best answer to the high treason of the spirit against life is high treason of the spirit against the spirit; and to be a part of this blasting operation is one of the great and cruel pleasures of our time'(Ernst Junger, Der Arbeiter, 2nd ed., Hamburg, 1932).
From Chapter 20, Professor NSDAP , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
