Confused about current events? You just need to pick up a copy of â€œThe Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,â€ by William L. Shirer. Specifically, read Chapter 12, â€œThe Road to Munichâ€ wherein Hitler breaks the vaunted German generals rather easily, many of whom as early as 1938 had already started plotting to overthrow him.Â
Now, the active shitter in the White House is no Hitler, because that's an insult to Hitler. (Seriously, Hitler was not a stupid man by any stretch of the imagination.) But America, not liking to do readinâ€™ and learninâ€™, has decided to follow the contours of the tyranny that overtook 1930s Germany to the fullest. That includes false hopes that the â€œadults in the roomâ€ would put country above all else and â€œdo the right thing.â€ German general leadership folded and didnâ€™t prevent the country from falling headlong into an abyss that cost Germany the war.
As you will tell from reading that chapter alone, **everything** collapsed and no one did a damn thing about it. Enjoy!
