Homework for you to study along the lines of ‘Know the Enemy’…And it’s important that you do.

Because the people who oppose we progressives on the Reich, no that’s not a mistake, are not like you and me. Do yourself a favor and read:

The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer

It’s all online so you can read if for free. Please do so.

Here’s a quote:

For example, take the following statement: “Once our government leaders and the authorities condemn the dangerous elements in our society, it will be the duty of every patriotic citizen to help stomp out the rot that is poisoning our country from within.” Sounds like something Hitler would say, right? Want to guess how many politicians, how many lawmakers in the United States agreed with it? Want to guess what they had in common?

Or how about a government program that persecutes political parties, or minorities, or journalists the authorities do not like, by putting them in jail, even torturing and killing them. Nobody would approve of that, right? Guess again.

Sound familiar? Read this.

    Printed the book out and couldn’t put it down all weekend. THANKS for posting! Great book ! This makes it easier to identify and understand who & what we are dealing with. Not just in gov. but in society at large. It’s hideous that so many people lack real courage.

    Will pass it on.
