"National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place. We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My Party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel."
Joseph Paul Goebbels
(1897-1945) German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany
Geobbels' diary, 16 October 1928

Reader comments about this quote:
I'm not sure how to rate this quote; 5 stars for its accuracy and effect on a person (individually or in concert) or, a giant thumbs down for its accuracy and effect on a person (individually or in concert). As occurred in Germany, National Socialism is the primary religion of most Amerikans. (secondary religions include Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, etc. - Atheism as a religion, exercises it religious practices, traditions, dogmas, canons and rituals through a national socialism format) The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land chooses both from the left and the right of national socialism (which ever is the most effective at the moment) to enslave its patrons. Personal liberty, sovereignty and administration or ordering the laws of nature and of nature's God are no longer concepts considered, contemplated or in existence in current National Socialism's Amerika.

    Goebbels' counterpart in American Islam was Edward W. Said. Goebbels was a master of Nazi propaganda in their mission to annihilate the Jews--Said was a master of Islamic propaganda in their jihad to annihilate the infidel. Both were enabled by the "politically correct" progressive socialists to establish a "master race" or a world-wide caliphate--one of those still has many disciples, so take your pick, because here we go again.....

    As Mike alluded to - our overbearing religious zealotry now emanates not from any sanctified spiritual connection to the universe - it is foisted upon us as "PROGRESSIVISM" and practiced/worshipped by our godless anti-American intellectually-libtarded populace of lockstepping Orwellian groupthinkers beholden to the Democrat party of sociopathic/socialist zealots.

    Goebbels could be proud and quite validated by the behavior delivered by these disconnected brainwashed masses; had Hitler such a dumbed-down populace of ignorant misfits, this ominously-rising 4th Reich would be but a continuation of Hitler's 3rd Reich victory.

    " A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump." national socialism, like sewage, one drop in a bottle of water, can't see it, want some ?

    Concerning those that would pollute our Liberty, Paul uses the word ( Apokopto, to amputate, mutilate the private parts of the body, literally ! ) I would say a very strong stand indeed !

    Concerning our Liberty and Faith in our God, king David, dealing with Nabal, king David said he would kill every thing that pisses against the wall !! Nabal died, David took his wife, to be his own. She was a humble woman, full, with grace and compassion.

    So if Socialism is a religion, what do socialists worship? POWER.

    The end result of this quote would be the same if you dropped the word Socialism...and changed 'national' to 'nationalism.'
