In 1982, Dr. Leonard Peikoff published “The Ominous Parallels: The End of Freedom in America,” which sounded a warning that the United States was moving “as Germany moved, in the same direction, for the same philosophical reason.” That direction toward which we are moving is fascism—the same poisoned ethos that drove Germany beyond the brink. Most Americans are haughtily unaware or diffident about the reality that what happened in Nazi Germany is happening here. To that point, Peikoff cites a number of dangerous trends: political parties devoid of principles or direction, each demanding still more controls; an anti-intellectual educational system that . . . creates students who can't read or write . . . students brainwashed into the feeling that their minds are helpless and they must adapt to ‘society,’ that there is no absolute truth and that morality is whatever society says it is; a pervasive atmosphere of decadence, moral bankruptcy, and nihilist art.” In the last two decades other warning signs have appeared—worship of the warrior; belief in the primacy of The State—both attitudes deeply entrenched by terrorism or the threat of terrorism from without and within. And how much was executed with state complicity? But beyond that possibility, Peikoff maintains that the deepest roots of German Nazism lay “not in existential crises, but in ideas—not in Germany's military defeat in World War I or the economic disasters of the Weimar Republic that followed—but in the philosophy that dominated pre-Nazi Germany.” Peikoff further contends that German Nazism “was the inevitable climax of a centuries-long philosophic development, preaching three fundamental ideas: the worship of unreason, the demand for self-sacrifice [warrior worship] and the elevation of society or the state above the individual [statism].”
This is a series based on a speech given at Harvard across April 27 and 28, 1955, by John Lord O’Brian, whose government service on behalf of the people is impressive, and one need only search his name to get a sense about the issues he felt most deeply. But no issue could have moved him more than the one to which he spoke at Harvard as part of the institution’s venerated Godkin Lectures on the Essentials of Free Government and the Duties Of the Citizen. Although it would have saddened him to find that his worst fears had been realized, O’Brian warned of the government’s use of terror or the threat of terror to induce its citizenry to relinquish its liberties for the specious promise of security. And here we are.
