72. "The French are not as efficient as the Germans in large scale, mass production."

     The French are not as efficient as the Germans in building tanks, guns, planes, flame-throwers, concentration camps and torture chambers.

     The French are not efficient in starting wars. The Germans are. German efficiency is used against peaceful, decent people.

     What does "efficiency" really mean ? Is it only a matter of output and production charts and impressive statistics ? Are the Germans more "efficient" in providing happiness or peace to their people ? Are the Germans more "efficient" in building decency, kindness, respect for human life ? Has German "efficiency" led to greater wisdom, better art, deeper morals, finer philosophies ?

     A prison is one of the most "efficient" institutions man ever created - but who wants to live in it ?
