Quotable: Adolf Hitler, closet American

“Above all, it is the young who succumb to this magic. They experience the triumph of the motorcar with the full temperment of their impressionable hearts. It must be seen as a sign of the invigorating power of our people that they give themselves with such fanatic devotion to this invention, an invention which provides the basis and structure of our modern traffic.”

— Adolf Hitler

Transportation Policy

So much for the right-wing canard that Hitler was a socialist. A real one would be promoting the tangible benefits of a well-run system of public transportation, not “fanatic devotion” to an invention that depletes resources and drives wedges between classes and individuals.
