Springtime For Hitler?

April 03, 1988

Re: "Orange County Neo-Facism Rediscovers Hitler":

I have long known why a publication will accept advertisements and supply reviews to slasher movies and pornography, the business world being what it is; but to publicize works of the fascist press, this is another matter.

Alain Henon's flippant review of a pro-Hitler biography, "Hitler: Born at Versailles" (Institute for Historical Review) is mind boggling for the very fact it was found in Book Review.

We know Hitler's supporters are living in Orange County with the implicit sanction of our own government, as in the Artukovic case; but why give credence to the publishers of this and other, more dangerous, trash? Why should The Times publicize garbage like this?

And if you are really interested in fascism and its roots, review Wilhelm Reich's penetrating book, "The Mass Psychology of Fascism," an illuminating examination of fascism in society, as well as the whys and wherefores of Hitler and his rise to power.
