The fourth Reich

  1. Jul 12, 2005 #1

    As I mentioned above, Hitler was TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938. Stalin was TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year for 1939 and 1942. Both of these men, and many others also celibrated by the media, were unimaginable monsters. The lesson from these facts is that it isn't easy to spot a genocidal tyrant when you live with one, especially one whom the press supports and promotes.
    Tyrants become obvious only when looking back, after what they have done becomes known. The German people did not stand up to Hitler because their media betrayed them, just as the American media is betraying the American people by willingly, voluntarily, even proudly, abandoning its traditional role as watchdog against government abuse.

    It is the very nature of power that it attracts the sort of people who should not have it. The United States, as the world's last superpower, is a prize that attracts men and women willing to do absolutely anything to win that power, and hence are also willing to do absolutely anything with that power once they have it. If one thinks about it long enough, one will realize that all tyrants, past and most especially present, MUST use deception on their population to initiate a war.


    I support bush, and all. But hearing diffrent people's opinion really broadens your horizon.

    It's good to be open-minded, but not so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    From the site:
    Afghanistan didn't attack the US.

    No it hasn't. The laws that have been written are not "specifically banned under Constitutional law". I don't agree with all of the Patriot Act... but they're not banned.

    say what?

    I think I'm going to move this thread to S&D

    Wow, I don't think I've ever been able to invoke Godwin's law on an original post before!

    Oh, I just learned a new term for this:   argumentum ad nazium.

    Just fyi, Time's "man of the year" award isn't a popularity contest or about positive contributions, its about most contributions, positive or negative. Both of those men most certainly had the largest impact on the events of the years they were "awarded" it.

    But anyway....
