  7. Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one's need to think. • “To sum it all up, I must say that I regret nothing.” • “We shall meet again. I have believed in God. I obeyed the laws of war and was loyal to my flag.” • “I was one of the many horses pulling the wagon and couldn't escape left or right because of the will of the driver.” • From my childhood, obedience was something I could not get out of my system. When I entered the armed service at the age of twenty-seven, I found being obedient not a bit more difficult than it had been during my life to that point. It was unthinkable that I would not follow orders.” Quotes by Adolf Eichmann
