Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
My 91 year old German mother is very very nervous. The current condition is very familiar. For instance, Obama recently said he had cut the budget by $1T. It was a lie, but no one called him on it. There was some journalists who said they would maybe try to hold the Democrats accountable, but it hasn’t happened. It’s always the Republicans’fault. Pretty soon any opposition to “progressives” will be enemies of the state.
Our time is running out. We wake up now--as a people--or we pay the consequence for having to learn again the lessons that should have been obvious to any student of history.
