Retraction: Adolf Hitler Quote

I recently wrote an article where I cited a quote from Adolf Hilter, turns out it was actually a manufactured quote derived from a passage in a fictional letter written by Rabbi Daniel Lapin in 2004.

The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.

My apologies.

Of course, I do believe Hitler would have fully agreed with the point the quote is making.

He did say, “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future. ”  Along with, “All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people. “
