In 1935 after the Nazis came to power in Germany, Hitler's minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, wrote a pamphlet titled "Nature and Form of National Socialism" that contains the quote above. It also states: "National Socialism is now in the process of slowly stabilizing the new legality in Germany which was created by revolution. This is basically different from the former legality and is also beyond the possibilities of criticism, which National Socialism could itself apply in the old system." The literal translation of the words that underlie the acronym "Nazi" are "National Socialist German Workers Party."
