I'm obliged to say it purely simply because my analysis has been doubted. 20 A clinical analysis isn't an accusation, and an ailing­ ness isn't a shame yet a misfortune. As early as 1936 I pleaded for compassion in judging the German mentality. 21 Even now I undertake the perspective of the therapist, and for this reason, within the pursuits of the sufferer, i need to emphasize the need for com­ plete perception with none extenuating provisos. It avails him not anything to domesticate just a half-consciousness of his , and to hide up his different part with illusions whose mammoth dan­ gers he has simply skilled within the so much bad shape. My sym­ pathy with the lot of the Germans is superb, and i'm simply too painfully acutely aware that my possibilities of having the ability to aid are ex­ ceedingly small. i will merely wish and pray that one of many worst 20 Nor does my analysis comprise each person German. i've got heard statements from Germans that have been spoken like a guy and weren't vitiated by means of that childish weak point which underlies the German Kraftmeier type. 21 Cf. "Wotan," supra, p. 22. EPILOGUE risks now threatening Germany, along with monetary misery, could quickly a few to an finish, and that's her religious isolation. nationwide isolation mixed with mass psychology and centrali­ zation are Germany's bane. the duty she has to fulfil isn't really political yet non secular, and the presents she possesses for this are essentially distinct. we should always as a result support and aid this part of her nature via all of the capability inside our strength. * i can't carry this epilogue to an in depth with no asserting a couple of phrases in regards to the outlook for the long run. No state has ever fallen so low because the Germans and none has ever branded itself with one of these stigma, which generations will be unable to scrub away. but if a pendulum swings so violently in a single direc­ tion, it really is able to swinging simply as a long way within the other—if we might follow this analogy to the psyche of a kingdom. i don't understand if it is justified from the ethnopsychological viewpoint. I in basic terms understand that, within the psyche of anyone with a bent to dissociation, there might be violent oscillations, with the outcome that one severe inevitably ends up in its contrary. professional­ vided, although, that he continues to be in complete ownership of his human features and hence has a median worth, i'm prone to imagine that the minus is balanced via the plus. In different phrases, i think there's a college for regeneration within the Germans that may manage to locate the ideal solution to the brilliant pressure among the opposites which has been so obtrusive prior to now twelve years. during this endeavour Germany wouldn't be remoted, for all of the confident non secular forces that are at paintings in the course of the civi­ lized global could stand via her and maintain her attempt. The strug­ gle among mild and darkness has damaged out far and wide. The rift runs throughout the entire globe, and the hearth that set Germany ablaze is smouldering and sparkling anyplace we glance. The con­ flagration that broke out in Germany was once the end result of psychic stipulations which are common.
