Those days are gone...


at least I believe they are for the time being. The difference between now and say the 1920's Germany is that we have enough people in the US that are bred to fight for their beliefs, the destruction of the constitution is met with resistance in the courts, and as this last election showed... in the vote count.

The irony in the term Nazi is that it stood for National Socialist Party... but they were anything but socialist...

you said it yourself... you always wondered how Hitler was able to get followers and have them be so loyal... this is similar to the same thing that Nazi party did in the 1920's and 30's... it is about about safeguarding a social and racial hierarchy. There are so many similarities that it is concerning... in the early days of Nazism they did what they could to install a fear of "socialism" and many of the early followers were anti-leftist more than they were for Hitler (does this sound familiar?)... The initial base was made up of businessmen and artisans... and over time many of the conservatives in Europe believed it was better to work with Hitler than with the socialist left... but little did they know that they enabled an expansionist and racist national vision that led to WW2 and the atrocities that came from the fear of socialism.

Been seeing a lot of articles on this and how fascism and radical nationalism tend to follow similar paths... and it is usually built around political manipulation and the destruction of civil liberties... throw in the suppression of the media, contempt for intellectuals and education, fraudulent election claims...
