Can you see a difference?

A long time ago, a wise person said “Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to relive them.”

Here is one story that is looking like it is coming around again

The year was 1932, the country Germany. The world was suffering from a massive financial depression. In Germany people were walking around with bags full of paper money to buy a loaf of bread. The general populous of Germany was feeling pretty down cast – no national pride, no jobs, no decent quality of life. Germany was still fighting its way back to being a productive member of the world stage after losing World War One.

A  man strolls up to the political front minds of the masses and starts shouting about how awful things were, and that HE was going to make things right, HE was going to make Germany great again. He had the plan and the plan beings by pointing His fingers at the JEWS. The horrible money grubbers, those who were not fit to be a part of the proper race. All of Germany’s problems were the fault of the Jews. Make them all where a badge to single them out from the proper race.

The democratic elections of 1932 saw Adolf Hitler, leader of the NAZI party, came very close to being elected to power. As it turned out, early 1933 he was given the Chancellorship and soon after took over the reins of power. Then things got really ugly for about a decade.

Skip ahead almost a century

The year is 2015, the country United States of America. The middle class is suffering from massive financial depression. People are walking around with pockets full of plastic cards, trying to get ahead of the Smiths. The elite are pitting the middle class against each other so that they will keep their power. The general populous are feeling pretty downcast – decent jobs very hard to find, people being crushed under huge mountains of debt. The United States is fighting its way back into being back its former glory.

A  man strolls up to the political front minds of the masses and starts shouting about how awful things are, and that HE is going to make things right, HE is going to make the US great again. He has the plan and the plan beings by pointing His finger at Mexicans and the Muslims and the refugees. All of the horrors of the world are because of them. Make them all where a badge to single them out from the proper race.

2016, the election is coming, are you prepared to have history repeat itself?

I sincerely hope not. I am horrified that asshat gets any airtime at all.

The truly sad part is that we have gone down the road of vilifying entirely innocent Americans and putting them into camps simply for looking like enemy combatants. The Japanese internment camps are even more recent that the Holocaust. While not as many people died, that happened right here in the good Old US of A.

I hope we are better than that. But humanity has disappointed me before.
