دانلود رایگان کتاب Goebbels.Mastermind of the Third Reich – David Irving
Are man’s intellectual misfortunes visited upon him before birth, like some
ineradicable mark of Cain, or is he born free of all attributes?
Some basic instincts are inherent, buried deep within the cerebral lobes. That much
is clear. Xenophobia; the urge to mate; the instincts to survive and kill, these are as
much part of the human mechanism as the escapement is part of the clock. But how is it with the more subtle qualities which, we hope, distinguish man from the lower orders—his powers to persuade and lead, to cheat and deceive? In short, does the infant come upon Earth unable to avoid the destiny already implanted in the neurones of his brain? Is it a genetic lottery? Here, a minute virus ordains that this man shall compose nine symphonies; there, an excess of dopamine will have him hearing the devil’s whispered commands for the remainder of an adult life that may well be curtailed by the hangman’s rope.
Every man has some say in his own fortunes. The tangle of nerves and ganglia is not just a rack which passively stores data and impressions. It is open to each brain’s owner to work upon it, to devise by intellectual training the swiftest path between it and the muscles and voice over which it is to be master.
