How did we get WW11, I hear ya, Hitler, your right, so he took control of the NSDAP in 1923, 10 years later in 1933 he took control of Germany. So how did he do it? “It was not democracy that gave power to Hitler. Hitler became Germany's chancellor (prime minister) without ever having received more than 37 percent of the popular vote.” A Back Room Deal motivated by self-interest and greed . . between politicians, bankers and the oligarchs of the day, handed him power. Six years later we had WW11. Its estimated more than 60 million individual, humans died. Most of those 60 million+ died in fear and pain. You can be sure, very few were part of the upper class. You might wonder why the other 63% of Germans who did not want Hitler didn’t rise up and have him thrown out. Well think about it, Thank God something like that could never happen today. Elected politicians, can only do what is in the best interests of the people, theres a law that says that, right, like theirs a law that says they have to tell us everything about any decisions they make, that might affect us, right? Of course that doesn’t include things like “World Trade Agreements” and other sensitive stuff that we might not fully understand. And security stuff that gives law enforcement agencies powers over the domestic population (that’s us) In 1933 .” Hitler's lieutenant, Herman Goering, was put in charge of the police, “ in February came the fire at the parliament building set by Hitler's men but attributed to” Guess who, friken Terrorists, (back then it was the Commies, did I see this story on TV recently) anyway the out come, Emergency Powers, for adolf and were looking a a new world order, I thing Steve Miller Band had a song that covers it pretty well. Could have that 63% who voted against him have stooped it? (well not if they weren’t armed and able to shoot) maybe, maybe not. But, if that 63% were armed, the back room boys, who orchestrated the deal, would have had to factor in that possibility and may have decided the risk out wayed the reward. Needless to say hitler got out of control and screwed the whole deal, and 60+ million people, paid with there lives.
But as we are so fond of saying these days “Ha that’s Politics for ya”
