Transcript of Cumulative Radicalisation
Hans Mommsen, ‘Cumulative Radicalisation and Progressive Self-destruction as Structural Determinants of the Nazi Dictatorship’. In Ian Kershaw, Hitler, 1998
Hans Mommsen Source S: the office of Fuhrer has developed out of the National Socialist Movement. In its origins it is not a state office…The position of the Fuhrer combines itself all sovereign power of the Reich; all public power in the state as in the movement is derived from Fuhrer power… For it is not the state as an impersonal entity which is the source of political power but rather political power is given to the Fuhrer as the executor of the nations common will…Fuhrer power is not restricted by safeguards and controls, but rather it is free and independent, exclusive and unlimited.
Ernst Huber, 1934, a constitutional theorist quoted in J. Noakes and G Pridham, Nazism 1919-1945, 2000
Ernst Huber Source T: The Fuhrer is the supreme judge of the nation. There is no position ion the constitutional law in eh Third Reich independent of this elemental will of the Fuhrer…Constitutional Law in the third Reich is the legal formulation of the historic will of the Fuhrer.
Hans Frank, 1938, Nazi Assoc. of Lawyers and of the German Academy of Law quoted in J. Noakes and G Pridham, Nazism 1919-1945, 2000
