Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. Why? Because for the majority of human history, human beings have lived in bondage, in poverty, under despotic leaders, with little to no freedom. But there’s a reason human beings have time and again voted for their own oppression: freedom is hard. It is not easy to be the governor of your own life. It involves struggle, toil, hard work, and it isn’t easy. Contrast personal freedom with the promise of collective “safety” and “security,” ambiguous terms sold by political charlatans in order to secure their power.
World War II survivor and Austrian Kitty Werthmann is a lesson in history. Her tale of Adolf Hitler’s rise to power is one we should all watch. It’s chilling, it’s terrifying, but worst of all, it sounds familiar. Watch:
Hitler gave everyone a free radio. He was a great orator. And then he nationalized the radio. Citizens were warned if they listened to anything other than Nazi radio, they would be put to death.
The only voice they had was the government radio station and the government controlled newspaper.
Hitler gave Austrian equal rights for everyone. Also, everybody getting a guaranteed income from the government. The equal rights amendment was designed in two components, equality, economics and social. Economics was designed to equalize the countries wealth because everyone was entitled to equal income. To achieve that, they had to raise taxes to 70%.
People got fuel stamps, heating fuel. The government equalized the countries wealth by taxing us. Called socialism.
On the socialism, everyone has to be on the work force. Moms stayed home, raised their families. But in socialism, if you didn’t work, you were called a parasite. Moms had to go to work and leave the kids to where? A daycare center. The longer you left your child with the schools and daycare, the better the government liked it. These caretakers were from the government, trained in psychology, to mold the children.
Education was then nationalized. We had a good education system before Hitler.
Seriously, this account is chilling. The longer you’ll listen to this full account (about 30 minutes) the more your skin will crawl.
But did you notice how Hitler did it? Incrementally. Not over night, not in a day, not in a week. Slowly, over time, one area of life and then another. Do it the Nazi way, it’s the better way. You can’t trust the media, you have to listen to the national media. You cannot trust private institutions, you have to trust the government institutions. And you moms who want to stay at home with your children to raise them right? No, get out of the home, work, and do the right thing by putting your children through our state school.
Leftist or Obama apologists will claim we’re being paranoid. Fine, I respect your freedom to think whatever you wish. Leftist apologists will say we’re being unfair in comparing their dear leader (Obama or anyone else) to any dictator. Fine, you’re free to tell me whatever you’d like. But if any of you apologists out there want to “report” this post to the government because you dislike it and think it should be removed… congratulations, you’ve proved the point. Where I believe in diversity of thought and more speech and not less, you have deemed anything that goes against your view of government as worthy of banning.
So pardon me if I’m a little cautious.
