To The Editor,
Some food for thought. Part One.
Are we being served leftovers on our buffet?
I think that I will start off with a with a quote from Adolf Hitler at the creation of the Nazi Gestapo. See if it rings a bell.
“An evil exists that threatens every man, woman, and child of this nation. We must take action to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland.”
Doesn’t this sound like why the NSA and Homeland Security was brought into existence after 9-11? Is history repeating itself?
Next, a quote from Hermann Georing, one of Adolf Hitler’s henchmen.
“Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don’t want war, neither in Russia nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood – But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a fascist dictatorship or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders that is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
With this I will leave you with a cliff hanger, and let you wonder where this madness is leading, but as Paul Harvey use to say. (Stay tuned for the rest of the story.)
