Slogans are vague statements that are typically used to express positions or goals. Because of their vagueness, they are easy to agree with.
Mantras or single sentence "life lessons" can be very similar.
Take for example the concept of 'believing in yourself', this can mean very different things to different people. I'm sure Adolf Hitler believed in
himself, the guy had a lot of confidence that he was doing the 'right' thing, battling the evil Jew conspiracy. Where did all this hatred for and
suspicion of the Jews come from?
Consider, for example, the lies that Martin Luther wrote in 1543 about the Jews in Europe: “They have poisoned wells, made assassinations, kidnaped
children . . . They are venomous, bitter, vindictive, tricky serpents, assassins, and children of the devil who sting and work harm.” His
exhortation to so-called Christians? “Set fire to their synagogues or schools . . . Their houses [should] also be razed and destroyed.”
A professor of government and social studies who has studied that era says: “Antisemitism has fundamentally nothing to do with the actions of Jews,
and therefore fundamentally nothing to do with an antisemite’s knowledge of the real nature of Jews.” He also notes: “The Jews stood for
everything that was awry, so that the reflexive reaction to a natural or social ill was to look to its supposed Jewish sources.”
The Nazis just continued this pattern, accusing Jews of similar conspiratorial activities, more often drawing attention to banking, industrial and
political influence and meddling of Jews in Germany.
