Stewart R. Smith

In a previous paper the author stated that the basis for a particular medieval social institution, Courtly Love, was an Oedipal wish for exclusive possession of the mother. Regarding Nazism, he believes the basis to be the Oedipal destruction of the father to defend the mother homeland. This is documented mostly by quotes from Mein Kampf. Father is equated with conscience and is represented by the Jews. This explanation of anti-Semitism refutes the notion that Hitler consciously used anti-Semitism as a fortuitous political device. Some readers will be amazed to find that the author believes that it can't happen here in America where 'unrestrained and overt attacks upon racial minorities have been incompatible with American tradition'. A much too short list of references does mention Wilhelm Reich's important book on Fascism.
