The morning of the anti-Nazi rally Rabbi Stephen Wise was wondering if he should call off the march. He was contacted by pro-Zionist groups in Germany asking him to call off the protest. He called then Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis and gave him the final say. Brandeis told him to go through with the rally.
Of these the most influential is what is called "education." Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part. What is essential in mass psychology is the art of persuasion. If you compare a speech of Hitler's with a speech of Edmund Burke, you will see what strides have been made in the art since the eighteenth century. What went wrong formerly was that people had read in books that man is a rational animal, and framed their arguments on this hypothesis. We now know that limelight and a brass band do more to persuade than can be done by the most elegant train of syllogisms. It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if the can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.
