The song was written for maximum propaganda effect. I'm reading 'The Rise and Fall of Nazi Germany' right now... just getting to the part where this Hitler guy is taking over everything, can't wait to learn how it all turns out. Seems like everyone was happy enough though:
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
