Are we living in the garden of beasts?...

 I believe we are.

A few days ago I finished Erik Larson's astoundingly wonderful book, In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin. 

What I found most chilling was the way life for most of the people in Berlin during the early years of Hitler (1933/1934) appeared normal.  There was an unawareness of the machinations of the political elite.  The book ends at the Night of the Long Knives and the subsequent death of President Hindenburg leading to Hitler's absolute control.

What is even more chilling is the fact that we have a country full of people who are as unaware as the Germans were during the rise of Hitler.   The difference is we have alternate news outlets that continually trumpet the truth and sound the alarm.  

While the Germans can be excused on the basis of ignorance and propaganda, what are we to make of the citizens of this country who turn their back on the warnings?  Are these the same people who say, "It could never happen again," when referring to Hitler's Germany?  Newsflash:  It can happen again.  It's happening right now.  If that's not chilling, I don't know what is.

Barack Obama: In the Footsteps of Twentieth Century Despots
How many times will the American people have to be hit over the head before they understand that Barack Obama is the most corrupt, dictatorial, and ideologically driven president in American history?  That his entire being and psyche are devoted to transforming the country not only into a socialist utopia, but into a nation permanently governed by a radical oligarchy?
This mindset has been on display since the beginning of Obama's term, as detailed by David Limbaugh in his book, Crimes Against Liberty.  Yet so many seem to not care or are deliberately oblivious to the long-term implications of his actions, many of which mirror those of the despots that ran roughshod over the last century.  read the rest
