Annotation by Robert:
Totalitarian states have something of a drug habit, which makes sense given the fact that much of their national income comes from illicit sources. Hitler, for example, was on a wide cocktail of drugs thanks to Theodor Morell, his personal physician.
Highlights of that list include “enzymes” – what kind is unclear – and “e. coli”. Medical science may not have been up to modern standards in the 1940s, but given the fact that Hitler first started taking drugs to solve an upset stomach, the idea of injecting him with a bacterial strain that causes food poisoning seems counter-productive.
