#631 "We need to give people more credit to having the common sense not to follow hate (Hitler being the exception)."
That's the unfortunate thing. If history has taught us one thing, it would be that we do not learn anything from history. Hitler was treated as a god in Germany.
Don't get me wrong, events can teach us many things and they can be remembered, but in time - unfortunately they seem to be forgotten. I can only say I believe (personally) that many of these things are spiritual in nature. I do not wish to rub salt in the wounds of the American people here or anyone else for that matter. This is my personal view and I respect everyone else has the right to believe in what they want - or even flame me in the mean time for this post. That is your God given right. I just mean that if you look at the many images of Hitler, you will see a reverence in the peoples eyes that is only synonymous with worship, which brings me to this 'spiritual' relationship. http://www.hitler.org/images/fuhrer.speaks2.jpg
Maybe there are many people on earth like this? Maybe another one in particular will rise? If that is the case, maybe we are in trouble? Now the world has become so interdependent that if one nation goes down, in all likelyhood, they could bring down the rest with them. Nations are merging (EU and other regional mergers in Asia etc.) that this could provide a springboard for the next Hitler. Except this time the world would be under this persons control.
This was such a disgusting act of horror and I am trying to see it from another side. Sorry if I may have offended anyone here by mentioning things that many do not believe.
