The Pen is mightier than the sword, but the Pen must sometimes move the sword against corruption if the corrupt are not moved by the pen.. An idea without an implementer is useless. "The Rulers do not carry the sword in vain"Rom 13:4

German National Anthem.. a play on words.

I was quite stunned to see the lyrics for the full German National Athem. But today they only sing the 3rd stanza as follows:

Unity and justice and freedom
For the German fatherland!
Let us all strive for this purpose
Brotherly with heart and hand!
Unity and justice and freedom
Are the pledge of happiness;

But the first stanza is still....

Germany, Germany above all things,
Above everything in the world,
when, for protection and defense,
it always stands brotherly together .
From the Meuse to the Memel,
From the Adige to the Belt,
 |: Germany, Germany above all things,
  Above everything in the world!

Keeping in mind the first stanza above..and the Title of the song:

Deutschlandlied    Separating out the word as follows: Deutschland.....lied.

Kinda fits pretty well with the stuff Hitler said about some issues.
