  1. It's more Fascist than Nazi. It's a mix between Fascist,Nazi and Communist ideas. The key component is socialism and the outstanding characteristic is Corporate Statism or Corporatism which is Fascist. One of the main reasons the left missed this is because they thought Fascist and Nazi's or Hitler was right wing. They absolutely were not. History is important.

  2. As an avid ww2 tragic, ABSOLUTELY history is repeating itself. Here in AUSTRALIA, our government with collaborators MSM and the POLICE disgracefully become dictators destroying our kids mental health whilst many cowardly citizens simply shrug their shoulders and wear the slave mask like good little sheep

  3. You don't make analogies between actions that happened historically and actions that are happening today, you do it between ideologies. Please read the Fascist Manifesto, the Nazi Manifesto, the Communist Manifesto. They're all available online and only 5-6 pages each. You quickly realize that while the actions might not map perfectly, the ideology does. And people who are capable of great evil in the past are just as capable of committing great evils today.

  4. I was born in 1959. WW2 was not even mentioned in school. Thought it was due to our premier who did not feel the need to partake. ATM's are being pulled in Australia. Wonder who will come and help us?

  5. Evil Unchecked, i’m not comforted that people don’t see the connection between Germany and what’s going on here, also the connection between Russia, and China, even Venezuela. Also, what happened in Germany has continued to happen in various parts of Europe and in Africa and Asia; while here what is going on hasn’t resulted in very much murder it has resulted in very much disorder, confusion, hate, and government takeover.

  6. It's the same game as the years before nazi Germany rose to power. The players have different names, look different and play their role in their own unique way. But all the signs are there. For more than 30 years now I've been saying thatthe US will be the next fascist state that wreak havoc on the world. The devil is in the details, as always. The parallels becoming uncanny. It might take some more years, but the US will eventually get the world into an Armageddon. Wait for it. After WWII the Germans all said "Wir haben es nicht gewusst!". If we survive it, we will know the American's words after WWIII "We didn't know".

  7. Was it really just a poor decision to put the virus-ill in with the seniors who could tell us about life pre and post WW2? Many changes have been planned and enacted over decades. Semantics. Janitors are now Environmental Specialists. Global domination is covered with sugar (WEF, ESG…).

  8. I think eveyrone realizes November will be another Dominion Section of the Library, then Biden will be retired in January by 25th A and America will disappear under President Kamala and VP Pelosi's Wide Open Borders and absolute catastrophic economic mishandling.

  9. I'm increasingly thinking that the French Revolution might be a closer analogy. Blatant corruption and contempt for the masses tends to lead to bad outcomes for the corrupt and contemptuous.

  10. As an astrologer the USA is in its Pluto return , a cycle the started in 1776.  Pluto in astrology refers to death and transformation.  The US is also having its Neptune opposition. So a major clash of opposing ideals.  This was the same aspect during the civil war.  We could see civil war break out followed by world war.  With the north node being in Taurus rules the land.  It’s possible that certain states succeed from USA and the USA break down into districts.  For example, Idaho would occupy east Oregon and become “ Greater Idaho”. Texas can legally break the treaty and dissolve into three separate districts.  From an anthropology view when humans no longer view their opposition as a person but an “it” that is how war starts.     Anyone that is a student of psychology can see blatant narcissistic tactics being deployed on usa citizens.  Saturn square Uranus we will see major food shortages.  Jupiter/Neptune conj… Well, the last time this happened was the great flood of 1856.   This also speaks to the mass psychosis being deployed by the media.  Uranus is currently in Taurus,which is the same transit during the great depression.  Like 2020, the great depression was a controlled demolition that created the largest transfer or wealth, power and control.  in 2020, people like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, etc increased their wealth by $540 Billion dollars.

  11. I am a german expat and I could see the writing on the wall in Germany, so I moved out of the country. Luckily there are still sane countries out there, where the population itself learns from the mistake of others, and is against division, and if the government tries something, direct democracy will ensure that this was the last time they did it.

  12. Thank you to both of you for your courage … once the Canadian government implements Bill S233 and digital ID it’s game over for us Canadians … there’s too many brainwashed here to get out from under that … I’m not sure really what we’re supposed to do anymore

  13. Well done! well pointed out! Many of use had grandparents that witnessed the horrors first hand. Many consider it a betrayal of for what they fought for. In some cases died for. To ended up in the same trap not but a lifetime after tell you something about humanity. Humanity is sick if it not treated right the inevitable will happen. Great work keep it up!
