Typically, I take a man at his word. Typically I find myself relieved as the truth of their words reveal themselves to be accurate and trustworthy. Even a man named Hitler was able to deceive and indoctrinate with horrendous results a population that had found themselves in great fear of the unknown but knowledge and prophesy brought him to the POWER that he ultimately attained. We view, as many Germans view, Hitler as a scourge on our human civilization But I tend to take a cynicle view. How 'bout us? Fascism is just another form of terrorism. The ideolgy of community is discarded to the overwhelming tactics of the politically and militarily powerful. As Americans, we must consider the over-reaching tentacles of the "corporate" to this equation. Just what do the "corporations" have in plan for us or do they have a plan at all that is both long term and societally responsible? Or is it superficial as in immediate satisfaction? Or does it have more to do with evil profitteering and innoculated bloodlust? The comprehensive efforts and successes of recent court decisions, war propagations, demonstrated religious intolerances and other criterion leave me almost speechless. Are the fascists, the bloodlusters, the truly evil really in charge? The inconsistensies in absolutes within policy indicate my fears are well-founded. Do you disagree and please comprehensibly explain your disagreement? Lord knows, I've seen enough attacking of the messenger without a burble of factual evidence condemning the message on this board. But that is true on most boards. I think the USMB is better than that, at least uleriourly.
