Pia Fraus or Something Else.  I hope I am mistaken, but I think that in Germany of today a twofold sort of hypocrisy is set up as the duty of the moment for everyone.  From imperial-political misgivings Germanism is demanded, and from social apprehensions Christianity — but both only in words and gestures, and particularly in ability to keep silent.  It is the veneer that nowadays costs so much and is paid for so highly; and for the benefit of the spectators the face of the nation assumes German and Christian wrinkles.
