In anivwer to my question why Ger
many lot the war, the kaiser said: v
"Wed never have lost the war If
my people had remained true to them
selves. I always assert with Martin
Luther 'if the world were full of devil
who would swallow u up, we would
Mill succeed if we did not fear tor
ourselves,' We had already overcome
hunger and need despite the fact that
Ame?rica had Joined hand with our -eternal
enemy. Britain. The betrayal
if Germany signified her detrt sen
tence." fiod Se-ol.TgCel World
"And notice how God scourged the
whole, world. All evil revenge Itself
here on earth." f -
"How doea your majesty holrl it pos
sible that his people have fallen so
low?" I asked.
The kaiser suddenly stopped, threw
a cigarette out of his mouth, ami said
"My people has bertayed itself, lt
God and me.," Already during the war
the social democrats took care of that.
They are chiefly guilty. Bvery Ger
man soldier who during the war re
turned home on a short leave waa aa
tematieally worked upon that ia to
say, spiritually spoiled. So he return
ed to his work under false influences
and ho was hot a soldier anymore. He
then sought to work upon his faithful
comrades and often succeeded."
It was at this point the kaiser made
he remark that. "Betrayal" of the
German people signified their death
.sentence, as quoted above.
God Can Help .
Does that mean a death sentence
"Nobody knows that." the kaiser
said. "Only God almighty can help
there. For the near future I do not
expect much. -The wprld looks elarkcr
every day. It was never so far re
moved from -peace as now. The whole
world has denied god not only my
neople have denied their God."
"For 26 different years I alone, led
the fight to keep the peace of my folk
then the sword of peace was struck
from out of my hand by my best
friend 1 never wished war."
