Present German Racial
Theory Is Deleterious To
Peace And Tranquility
The racial theory, upon which the
present German government is
founded, has a deleterious effect on
world peace, Prof. Lawrence Preuss,
of the political science department,
said, speaking on "Germany and the
National Socialistic State" at the first
Union forum, held at 4:30 p.m. Sun-
day in the Small Ballroom of the
Hitler's ideal of "preserving the
purest racial element in the state"
leads to a feeling of superiority on the
part of the German people, releasing
the inferiority complex which they
have had since the World War, Pro-
fessor Preuss said.
The racial theory, which attempts
a complete renovation of German
thought as to what Germans of the
present day ought to be, is a domin-
ating influence in German law-na-
tional, international and criminal, he
Germany today is trying to purge
the law of its Roman and Jewish in-
fluence and to restore it on a basis
of primitive German law, for, ac-
cording to Hitler, Nordic law is the
only pure German law, and true law
can be established only by the Nor-
dics, Professor Preuss continued.
Hitler applies his racial theory to
criminal law as is illustrated in the
"Blood Purge" of 1934. He enacted
his reforms and got the sanction of
the court later, saying that he acted
for the good of the people, and so
needed no preliminary sanction, Pro-
fessor Preuss stated.
The racial theory makes a hollow
mockery of international law, Pro-
fessor Preuss said, as it includes the
idea that there can be legal com-
munity only between members of like
races, and consequently separates the
world into a nmmber of mutually hos-
tile races.
The effect of the racial theory on
German thinking is to reduce it to a
dead level of monotony, and to de-
stroy the reputation of great thinking
for which Germany has so long been
noted, Professor Preuss concluded.
A half hour discussion followed the
