His developing personality, his pride and need for freedom were constrained by the dominating state. He dreamed of building Solomon's Temple, the imagined picture of a realm without constraint. It was his first awareness of the con~ trast between power and ethical absolutes. Out of the depth of its suffering, the child declared against power. The doctrine of predestination, taught him against his father's orders, became yet another spiritual foundation upon which to base his opposition. He took the position that man whose nature was ordained by God could not change himself, and from there it was but a short distance to insist on the right of his own ego, his individuality.

Within the next few days there were public celebrations enough to take some of the edge off the people's disappointment over Frederick's homecoming; but the economic miracles they had expected of him were slow in coming to pass. The Jews, whom he had used often for the thankless tasks of manipulating the currency and procuring supplies (and even for purchasing surplus Russian army stores in Poland), were popularly suspected of wholesale profiteering and were blamed and hated for all the hardships incidental to the postwar deflation.

Then his other brother, Ferdinand; then came Ferdinand of Brunswick, and a public acknowledgment of gratitude for his splendid services. Then he asked Prince Henry who the other gentlemen were, and the prince presented them. To the Dutch minister, who had offered an asylum to Berliners when the Russians were in the city, he was especially cordial.
