Psychiatric Interpretation of German Cultural Trends

by Richard M. Brickner, M.D. 1943

I believe that unless certain anthropological and psychiatric factors, not very well known today, are given serious consideration, nothing we do will prevent a third world war, with Germany as the aggressor. These factors concern some of the emotional and intellectual habits, which have a dominating place in German culture. The habits referred to, combined as they are into a total pattern, give the appearance of paranoid thinking. This has been the leading cause of German aggression and of the two world wars, in my opinion. Paranoid thinking embraces these definite characteristics, gathered together into a constellation, and causing the thinker to treat others with aggressive hostility.
