„The Third Reich coined only a very small number of the words in its language, perhaps - indeed probably - none at all... But it changes the value of words and the frequency of their occurrence, it makes common property out of what was previously the preserve of an individual or a tiny group, it commandeers for the party that which was previously common property and in the process steeps words and groups of words and sentence structures with its poison.“
