I have come under attack for trying to explain to people that we are traveling a parallel path to that of 1930’s Germany – often from those who I thought friend. Now, I’ve never said we are traveling the same path. This is a different country, with a different culture and heritage, so the specifics in our case will be and are different from those of 1930’s Germany. But the path — the ‘spirit’ that is driving our course – is the same, and that’s why I see the similarities. Why I have been attacked for simply stating the truth is beyond me, but I’m long past caring about it. All I want is for people to listen and look at what is being said because it is the Truth. So, if you have ignored me in the past because you discount my credibility, then how about if a combat Marine Colonel tells you? Would you listen then? Or do you know and understand enough history to understand that this is the message he is delivering to us in this story?
