7. Death to Germany
When An Individual commits premeditated murder, he must be prepared to forfeit his own life in consequence. When a nation commits premeditated murder upon its fellow nations, it must be prepared to forfeit its own national life.
On that point the laws of man and God are explicit:
"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, and a life for a life."
But what is the law of man or God to Germany? Nothing.
She recognizes only German law; so be it.
It must then be German law, if such a law there be, which decrees
her penalty the penalty of death.
And there is such a German law which decrees that death to her:
"As in all human affairs, there must also be in every system of punishment a last limit, a ne plus ultra that no punishment can overstep. Thus even from the point of view of pure theory the necessity of the death-penalty is postulated; it is, as the ultimate punishment on earth, the indispensable keystone of every ordered system of criminal law. No apparent reasons which are alleged against it can withstand any serious criticism. The State, which has the right to sacrifice for its own protection the flower of its youth, is to feel so nice a regard for the life of a murderer? We must rather allow to the State the right to make away with men who are undoubtedly injurious to the common weal. That the powers that be must bear the sword is an expression which runs deep in the blood of the honest man; if this truth is to be banished out of the world, great wrong is done to the simple moral feeling of the people. The ultimate problems of the moral life are to be solved in the domain of the practical, not of the theoretical, reason. The conscience of every earnest man demands that blood be atoned by blood, and the common man must simply grow doubtful of the existence of justice on earth, if this last and highest punishment is not inflicted. The State makes itself ridiculous and contemptible if it cannot finally dispose of a criminal. There must be a limit for mercy and indulgence, as for the law, a last limit at which the State says: 'This is the end, It must be no longer possible here.' It must be possible to inflict at last a punishment beyond which there is nothing, and that is the punishment of death." (Heinrich von Treitschke.)
Let German Will be done!
There remains now but to determine the best way, the most practical and expeditious manner in which the ultimate penalty must be levied upon the German nation. Quite naturally, massacre and wholesale execution must be ruled out. In addition to being impractical when applied to a population of some seventy million, such methods are inconsistent with the moral obligations and ethical practices of civilization. There remains then but one mode of ridding the world forever of Germanism and that is to stem the source from which issue those warlusted souls, by preventing the people of Germany from ever again reproducing their kind. This modern method, known to science as Eugenic Sterilization, is at once practical, humane and thorough. Sterilization has become a byword of science as the best means of ridding the human race of its misfits, the degenerate, the insane, the hereditary criminal.
Sterilization is not to he confused with castration. It is a safe and simple operation, quite harmless and painless, neither mutilating nor unsexing the patient. Its effects -are most often less distressing than vaccination and no more serious than a tooth extraction. Too, the operation is extremely rapid requiring no more than ten minutes to complete. The patient may resume his work immediately afterwards. Even in the case of the female the Operation, though taking longer to perform, is as safe and simple. Performed thousands of times, no records indicate cases of complications or death. When one realizes that such health measures as vaccination and serum
treatments are considered as direct benefit to the community, certainly sterilization of the German People cannot but be considered a great health measure promoted by humanity to immunize itself forever against the Virus of Germanism.
The population of Germany, excluding conquered and annexed territories, is about 70,000,000, almost equally divided between male and female. To achieve the purpose of German extinction it would be necessary to only sterilize some 48,000,000 -a figure which excludes, because of their limited power to procreate, males over 60 years of age, and females over 45.
Concerning the males subject to sterilization the army groups, as organized units, would be the easiest and quickest to deal with. Taking 20,000 surgeons as an arbitrary number and on the assumption that each will perform a minimum of 25 operations daily, it would take no more than one month, at the maximum, to complete their sterilization. Naturally the more doctors available, and many more than the 20,000 we mention would be available considering all the nations to be drawn upon, the less time would be required. The balance of the male civilian population of Germany could be treated within three month. Inasmuch as sterilization of women need somewhat more time, it may be computed, that the entire female population of Germany could be sterilized within a period of three years or less. Complete sterilization of both sexes, and not only one, is to be considered necessary in view of the present German doctrine that so much as one drop of true German blood constitutes a German.
Of course, after complete sterilization there will cease to be a birth rate in Germany. At the normal death rate of 2% per annum, German life will diminish at the rate of 1,500,000 yearly. Accordingly in the span of two generations that which cost millions of lives and centuries of useless effort, namely, the elimination of Germanism and its carriers, will have been an accomplished fact. By virtue of its loss of self-perpetuation German Will will have atrophied and German power reduced to negligible importance.
Reviewing the foregoing case of sterilization we find that several factors resulting from it firmly establish its advocacy.
Firstly, no physical pain will be imposed upon the inhabitants of Germany through its application, a decidedly more humane treatment than they will have deserved. As a matter of fact it is not inconceivable that after Germany s defeat, the long-suffering peoples of Europe may demand a far less humane revenge than that of mere sterilization.
Secondly, execution of the plan would in no way disorganize the present population nor would it cause any sudden mass upheavals and dislocations The consequent gradual disappearance of the Germans from Europe will leave no more negative effect upon that continent than did the gradual disappearance of Indians upon this.
Here again, a German attests to this point, Spengler's famous: "A
nation or an individual may die and leave no gap!"
A detailed program of the manner in which the outraged victims of Germanic onslaught might make certain that Germany leave no gap might be put hypothetically:
Germany has lost its war. She sues for peace. The imperative demands of the victor people that Germany must perish forever makes it obligatory for the leaders to select mass sterilization of the Germans as the best means of wiping them out permanently The proceed to:
1) Immediately and completely disarm the German army and have all armaments removed from German territory.
2) Place all German utility and heavy industrial plants under heavy guard, and replace German workers by those of Allied nationality.
3) Segregate the German army into groups, concentrate them in severely restricted areas, and summarily sterilize them.
4) Organize the civilian population, both male and female, within
territorial sectors, and effect their sterilization.
5) Divide the German army (after its sterilization has been completed) into labor battalions, and locate their services toward the rebuilding of those cities which they ruined.
6) Partition Germany and apportion its lands. The accompanying map gives some idea of possible land adjustments which might be made in connection with Germany's extinction.
7) Restrict all German civilian travel beyond established borders until all sterilization has been completed.
8) Compel the German population of the apportioned territories to learn the language of its area, and within one year to cease the publication of all books, newspapers and notices in the German language, as well as to restrict German-language broadcasts and discontinue the maintenance of German-language schools.
9) Make one exception to an otherwise severely strict enforcement of total sterilization, by exempting from such treatment only Germans whose relatives, being citizens of various victor nations, assume financial responsibility for their emigration and maintenance and moral responsibility for their actions.
Thus, into an oblivion "which she would have visited upon the world, exists Germany.
