Stresemann, who had been a monarchist and annexationist in the early days of World War I, had become a Vernunftrepublikaner, that is a "republican by reason" (Wirsching and Eder 2008) and a proponent of international detente--probably also by reason (Niedhart 2012: 23; Mommsen 2009: 251; Wright 1995: 119).

During the more stable years of the Weimar Republic, most notably between 1923 and 1929, the Republicans could indeed point to a number of successes: the peaceful reintegration of several million soldiers into German postwar society, the introduction of one of the world's most democratic constitutions, as well as some significant foreign policy successes in the era of Gustav Stresemann. In 1928 this democratic self-confidence found expression in one of the largest political demonstrations in Weimar's history.
(113) In South Baden, some of the former members of the Agrarian Association joined the DVP, which under the leadership of Stresemann supported the Weimar Republic, while others joined the newly founded Baden Agrarian Association (Badische Landbund), and later joined the Nazi Party which had just begun to operate in South Baden from 1928.
