Franz von Papen
Born October 29, 1879
Died May 2, 1969
It is to be hoped that the leaders of this movement will place the nation above the party.
The nation demands a movement which has written upon its banner the internal and external national freedom that it will act as if it were the spiritual, social and political conscience of the nation.
It is conceivable that a party might gain the majority in parliament and claims the government for itself.
Party domination and State leadership are concepts incompatible with one another.
The essence of conservative ideology is its being anchored in the divine order of things.
We decline the claim to power by parties which want to own their followers body and soul, and which want to put themselves over and above the whole nation.
Names and individuals are unimportant when Germany's final fate is at stake.
