...warmongers soaked in blind patriotism, violent nationalism, animalistic fear and ignorant xenophobia...
I saw the above quote used to describe what Joseph Goebbels was able to turn the defeated German populace into after WWI. Does any one else feel that our nation today, to a degree, could be described in the same language? We are just when we defend ourselves. But that justice can be so easily lost when we move from self-defense into self-aggrandizement and cultural myopathy. Let us not lose the great lesson we learned in the 1940's, lest we become what we once destroyed.
