John Gunther
The High Cost of Hitler

Hitler, you know, has a very adhesive mind. He
picks up things from everybody. He's like some 
extraordinary sponge. Consider how he has pillaged 
people for ideas. He has borrowed dogma even from the Jews....
For instance consider the striking paradox in that he has
taken a great deal from Woodrow Wilson.....Hitler hated
Wilson....But Hitler used - and used with superb skill-
the Wilsonian theory of self-determination as a means to
destroy Czechoslovakia .... Hitler in fact, used Wilson's
own weapon - self-determination - to wreck the new 
countries Wilson helped to create.                .

         Similarly, Hitler has appropriated a great deal 
from another mortal enemy, Karl Marx.....
