Andreas Baader: We are forming a group. We will change political affairs.Ulrike Meinhof: How is that supposed to work out.Andreas Baader: What kind of f**king bourgeois question is that? We will do that if it kills us.
“[The Baader Meinhof group] mainly lost their realistic view of reality. Suddenly, when they went underground, they thought and felt that they lived in a police state, a fascist police state. And when you are living in a fascist police state you are allowed to do anything. They had to change reality and their view on reality first in order to be able to do all these terrible things . . .“They forgot that they weren't putting bombs in "dead places" ... but on living human beings [and] became very cruel in their attempt to fight the cruelty of the world”.“. . . Terrorism is terror, and people sometimes forget that.”
