A Lesson to be Learned: Why is it so Easy to be Enthralled with Fascism and National Socialism

Let it be said before the reader views these video's. I do not know who made them or where they came from originally. What I do know is that they are scary. Most importantly they teach a very valid lesson. The original movie "The Wave" was made in 1981 and was supposedly based on true events in Palo Alto, California around 1967 or so.

So without further ado and for your viewing pleasure, I present parts 1 and 2 of "The Obama Youth Corps Wave."

Part 1:

Part 2:

So please keep in mind that it is very easy to be entranced by someone who is charismatic and promises to do anything and everything to fix our nation's problems. Please keep in mind these videos do present a worst case scenario. I hope and pray for our president, our congress, our governors, and state legislatures, that they may make the best possible decisions. I also believe it is time for ordinary people, you and I to make a stand on our beliefs and get involved in the political system. If the people take our country back from the career politicians and we return to following constitution, I believe the country can be saved. May God Bless everyone.

For the readers information:

I have changed the name of the Blog and Blog address. If this causes any problems, my apologies.

If anyone is interested in watching the original unabridged version of the movie in 1981 the link can be found here. The original poster also provides a link to purchase the movie.

Fascism and National Socialism. One and the Same and Both of the Left

'CoverCover via Amazon

Long time coming, this little topic. We have all been taught that during World War 2 Democracy teamed up with Communism to defeat a dangerous enemy in National Socialism and Fascism. We have all been taught that both National Socialism and Fascism of ideologies of the right. Has anyone ever wondered why both Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy both had complete control of their nation's economies? Has anyone ever wondered how Mussolini, a stalwart Socialist, became a fascist? What about Adolph Hitler, with his belief that corporations should bend to the will of government? Were both these men of the right of the political spectrum? Or were both men's visions just different flavors of of Karl Marx's ideas?

A real good way to find answers to these questions is to go to Barnes and Noble or the bookstore of your choice and find a book titled, "Liberal Fascism" by Los Angeles Times Columnist, Jonah Goldberg. He offers excellent insights and evidence on both men and their respective movements. He is able to link both groups to the left of the political spectrum. Goldberg even delves into the meaning of the words themselves because scholars and old Soviet propaganda, have dictated for decades that both movements were of the far right. He does an excellent job of disproving of old teachings and also shows us that the United States may be heading headlong down the paths where both of these men trod.

So folks, go on down to the bookstore and get it ordered, or use the link here to go to Amazon. It has really opened some eyes including my own. It is a good read and will help all those who read it to better understand what is happening in our country.
