Note 022
by Joachim C. Fest

Heuss, Hitler's Weg. Revealing is the speech given by Goebbels on 7th November 1933 at the Berlin Sportpalast in which he amplified:

'The party had its authorities, it had its leader, it had its conception, it had its organisational rules, its style, its beliefs, its faith. Everything that appertains to the state was already embodied in the party, and at that instant in which external power was transferred to it, it in turn needed only to transfer its rules, its belief in authority, and its conceptualization to the state in order to bring the revolution to a practical conclusion. This - nothing more - has taken place since 30th January' (Joseph Goebbels, Signale der neuen Zeit).
From Chapter 3 ,The Fuhrer , Part 1 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest
