“For it would be wrong to assume that there is a large majority of people who are actually conscious of the political oppression [in Germany in September of 1944]. There is always only a minority interested in politics in any country, Germany being no exception in this respect. Most people are only interested in their own private affairs, their homes, their business, and only reluctantly take an interest in politics, therefore they do not realized they are politically oppressed and consequently don’t resent it.” (Jupp Kappius aus London, 10.05.1945, “General Background of my Work”)
Ist es nicht heute immer noch ganz genau so? Die Mehrheit interessiert sich nur fuer die eigenen Belange und hat weder Sinn noch Verstand fuer das, was den privaten Rahmen uebersteigt.
