Note 021
by Joachim C. Fest

21 Ernst Junger, Tagebuch, entry for 21st September 1929, quoted by Sontheimer, Antidemokratisches Denken in der Weimarer Republik. See also the comment by Friedrich Georg Junger, whose critical writings on contemporary thought show a tendency to outdistance his brother's radicalism with a special lack of consideration and conscious brutality:

'The great and mighty Germany of the future is willed by him [the National Socialist] ... Let thousands, nay millions, die; what meaning have these rivers of blood in comparison with a state, into which flow all the disquiet and longing of the German being!' (F. G. Junger, Der Aufmarsch des Nationalismus, quoted by Sontheimer).
From Chapter 20, Professor NSDAP , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
