"Are we All Nazis?" A chilling but enlightening book - the "Nazi" personality is/has always been, in EVERY society. All it takes for them to rise up is the rule of law to be set aside...as the laws on sexual molestation has been in the case of the TSA.

as one reviewer of the book states: "Hans Askenasy reveals the extraordinary conditions under which any of us could become an inhuman murderer. Or so it seems. But the conditions are ordinary, not extraordinary, and the inhuman behavior is all-too-human."

The chill of watching those TSA people molest people because they "have the power!" is a very frightening glimpse of how easily people in ANY society would turn on their fellow citizens if given the chance to do so with impunity.

Yes, the recent machinations and excesses of the TSA prove the poitn of this essay. The will to power is governed neither by conscience nor by any sort of moral sanctions. It's the road to, and the prerequisite for, atrocity and slaughter.
