“The consequences of committing high treason, if you were a man of the extreme Right, was not unduly heavy, despite the law, and a good many anti-republicans took notice of it.”

…Another reason I’m not blogging much is that I am wading through The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. It seems an apropos book for right now, although it is laborious and not very well received by academics.

I guess the scariest part is the similarities I see with late 20’s-earl 30’s Germany and the US now. There are some big differences, as well, but anyone really paying attention could have spotted the danger pretty early back then…Unfortunately, no one seemed to be paying attention until it was too late.
