Last part of the book was about Socialism and it is intrinsic union with today's public politics, qualified the book as a speech for taking several explanations of recovering german theories of state and how it was not being part of the holocaust idealism, book covered german theories of work and state enounced topics of the way of german contemporaneous authors were brief detailed in their books.
