In the following passage, the opinions of German politicians towards the war and the will of the nation was presented. The socialist Heinemann argued that no German would want peace until the nation’s enemies were ready to let Germany develop its economic and cultural powers. Dr. Braun reported that the socialists wanted the German nation to stand together against their enemies, but that the Germans did not want conquests or annexations, as some politicians seemed to want. The Prussian Interior Minister said that the only aim should be ending this war in a way that there would be no repetition of it.
