"In the beginning God created the individual...Society was created for the benefit of individuals, and not otherwise. Some will point to the contradiction between this view and the content and meaning of my national propaganda: one of my friends, who read this manuscript, reminded me that he heard another hymn from me: "In the beginning God created the Nation". There is no contradiction, My second hymn was not worded to contradict those who say that humanity was created before the Nation. I believe firmly that in the competition between these two, the Nation comes first, and that the Individual comes before the Nation. Even should the Individual enslave his entire life to the service of the Nation - I see no contradiction: So he willed. Will and not must."
