In a comparison between current events and Hitler's methodical expansion of the German Empire, it appears that our de facto government has been taking lessons from der Fuhrer.
"The Nazi party should not become a constable of public opinion, but must dominate it. It must not become a servant of the masses, but their master!" The mainstream media has completely blacked out all things that reflect negatively on the current administration. Dr. Ron Paul's presidential campaign has been virtually ignored, there was very little discussion about the National Defense Resources Preparedness order, and the drama surrounding President Obama's lack of eligibility has been completely silenced. People have only been presented with the candidates that are
"People have killed only when they could not achieve their aim in other ways ... there is a broadened strategy, with intellectual weapons ... why should I demoralize the enemy by military means if I can do so better and more cheaply in other ways?" The people of America have been oppressed financially. With unemployment rates so high that even a blatant doctoring of the statistics cannot hide it, people are desperate to keep their homes out of foreclosure and feed their families. According to Dr. Bruce Levine, a clinical psychologist "... today, most U.S. citizens are broken by financial fears. There is potential legal debt if we speak out against a powerful authority, and all kinds of other debt if we do not comply on the job. Young people are broken by college-loan debts and fear of having no health insurance....We are also broken by a corporate-government partnership that has rendered most of us out of control when it comes to the basic necessities of life, including our food supply."
"Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future." In recent Congressional testimony, Obama's Director of National Intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair, acknowledged that the administration reserves the “right” to carry out assassinations. Investigative journalist Andrew Breitbart suffered an extremely suspicious "heart attack" just hours before the release of information that promised to damage the campaign of the President. Whistleblowers of the BP oil spill have been dropping like flies. Dissent has become a terminal illness.
"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community." When your child enters the doors of the local public school, he or she is being prepared for life in the new regime. Promoting the false environmental movement takes precedence over the "three Rs", and sets the stage for a warm reception of Agenda 21. Sex education starts earlier and earlier and is extremely explicit. The children are being desensitized to invasions upon their personal privacy as they walk through metal detectors, have their lockers searched, and are constantly monitored by video cameras and even RFID chips in some schools. They are being subjected to terror drills with villains such as "homeschoolers" and "fundamental Christians" where they are moved to locations undisclosed to parents until after the drills. This MK Ultra style of brainwashing is not preparing our kids for successful independent lives - it's preparing them to be good little worker bees who have no concept of resistance.
"There must be no majority decisions, but only responsible persons, and the word 'council' must be restored to its original meaning. Surely every man will have advisers by his side, but the decision will be made by one man." President Obama is definitely taking this one to heart. He frequently bypasses the Congress by signing treaties and executive orders, both of which do not require Congressional approval. He and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have asserted that the decision to use military force will not go through Congress, but through Nato and the United Nations, despite the fact that the Constitution states that only the Congress has the authority to declare war. In his own words, Obama said, "We can't wait for Congress to do its job. So where they won't act, I will. We're going to look every single day to figure out what we can do without Congress."
The real lesson from Hitler that the current regime might like to take note of, is how he ended up. As the tide of the war began to turn, he retreated to his bunker for the final 4 months of his reign, as the Third Reich that was rapidly disintegrating before his eyes. His most trusted advisers and officers turned against him, attempting to surrender Berlin to the allies. Hitler's own ally, Benito Mussolini, was executed by Italian revolutionaries. Rather than face that fate, or even worse, surrender, Hitler and his wife were said to have committed suicide when the Soviet forces were less than 500 yards away from the bunker.. (There is some historical question whether Hitler truly died on April 30, 1945 or if he somehow escaped and lived out the rest of his life in wealthy anonymity in South America.)
For contemporary leaders taking notes from Mein Kampf, please remember that oppression begets violent revolution. More than 77,000 Germans died resisting Hitler. The armies of the world declared war on him. His own favored officials eventually turned against him and leaked information to the Allies that aided in the fall of Berlin. Adolf Hitler suffered a nervous collapse and ended up defeated, powerless and eternally reviled. Despite a rip-roaring start at ruling the world, it really didn't end very well for Hitler.
