WHEN the National Socialist Government came into office, on January 30,
1933, it was confronted with widespread chaos and confusion in the social,
economic and political life of the nation. A similar state of affairs existed in the
legal sphere and in the administration of justice. The situation was too critical to
allow of any time being lost in dealing with it.

The first step taken was to put an end to the manner in which Parliament had
hitherto functioned. Even in imperial times, before the War, this institution had
proved itself inefficient. The republican parliament however, which followed the
War, turned out not only inefficient but positively detrimental to the interests of
the country. This republican Reichstag had been organized according to the prin-
ciples laid down in the Weimar Constitution of 1919. But that Constitution had
been drawn up by a Conference of theoretical jurists and politicians who were
quite out of touch with the practical needs of the nation. It was therefore out of
harmony with German historical tradition, with German mentality and the ethical
constitution of the German nation. Moreover, the constitutional laws enacted at
Weimar were formulated under the aegis of the so-called Peace Treaties and as
such they naturally failed to arouse popular opinion in favour of the new
Constitution. In the final crisis of 1932/33 the legislative body operating under this
Constitution, that is to say, the Reichstag, absolutely failed to function.
Parliamentary legislation was increasingly superseded by emergency decrees
issued by the President of the Reich. In the year 1931 35 laws were passed and 42
emergency decrees were issued. In 1932 only 5 laws were passed, but 60 decrees
were issued. This system of emergency decrees could not furnish a permanent
basis for the government of the country.
Der Kamerad

"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe
