It creeps up, year after year. Charlotte Twight wrote a book on this process almost 40 years ago. It has accelerated.
This article lists 25 indicators that the corporate state today is like Germany in 1933. The differences are a matter of degree, the author says.
I don’t think we are anywhere close to Germany politically as of 1933. We are an armed nation. But the economy has parallels. The direction we are taking as a nation is clear. It is not away from National Socialism’s corporate welfare state.
#1 Nazi Germany was a totalitarian Big Brother police state that constantly monitored everything that German citizens did.
Today, the bureaucrats that run things in the United States are also absolutely obsessed with constantly trying to monitor us. For example, there are now control freaks that inspect the lunches of preschool students in certain areas of the country in order to make sure that they contain the “right” foods. . . .
#2 Nazi officials often used their positions of power to force others to do dehumanizing things. . . .
#3 In Nazi Germany, even women and children were treated like dehumanized cattle.
Well, today schoolchildren are being strip-searched all over the United States. Down in Georgia, one student was recently strip-searched by public school officials after another student falsely accused him of having marijuana.
Another student down in Albuquerque was recently forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong.
#4 In Nazi Germany, authorities could stop you and search you at any time and for any reason.
In America that is not supposed to happen, but it is happening. Last year, TSA “VIPR teams” conducted approximately 8,000 “unannounced security screenings” at subway stations, bus terminals, seaports and highway rest stops. . . .
#5 Under Adolf Hitler, there were massive increases in government spending. . . .
#6 Under Hitler, taxes were raised dramatically in order to pay for all of these social programs.
#7 The economy of Nazi Germany was very highly socialized. . .
#8 In Nazi Germany, if you conducted business outside of the socialist paradigm you were heavily punished. . . .
#9 In Nazi Germany, government regulation of business got wildly out of control. . . .
#10 Under Hitler, free market capitalism was absolutely hated.#11 In Nazi Germany, the health care system was taken over by the government. . . .
#12 Under Adolf Hitler, abortion was made “safe and legal” in Germany.
It turns out that Hitler was a huge fan of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. And as I wrote about recently, it was Sanger that once said the following….
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
Hitler echoed this sentiment when he wrote the following in Mein Kampf….
“The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring. . . represents the most humane act of mankind.”
After the Nazis came to power in 1933, abortion was very quickly legalized. By 1935 there were approximately 500,000 abortions being performed in Germany every single year.
