Nazi Germany by Balddog4 Nazi Germany by Balddog4
This is where America is headed if we do nothing to prevent this from happening. The Occupied Wall Street Movement is one example of America taking one step closer to the edge. And if we go over the egde it will take America years to recover from the damage that took place. To prevent this we have to vote in leaders that will make changes for the good of the Country, not the bad. Because history tends to repeat itself. And it's scary. Don't let this happen like it did to Germany.

I don't understand how the Occupy Wall Street Movement is similar to the Nazi regime.

So you say that under the Obama presidency...
Everybody will be forced to become racist and Jews will be outlawed?
The only people allowed are whites (even though Obama is black), and the entire country of America will move to the spot where Germany is? Or should I say where Germany USED to be? Haha!
We're going to invade Poland after Britain tells us not to, we'll go into WWII again somehow, and all the cameras will be old-timey and in black&white?

All this because we have Obama as a president?

Also, if this was a fair comparison and the Democrats were the Nazi party...
Wouldn't that make their opponent, Republicans, the opposing part of the Nazis, the Communist party?

You just called the Republicans their worst enemy!

No.....you see I don't think anyone in the government at the moment is either smart enough, or charismatic enough to pull off what Hitler did. I really doubt it. Besides, even in our worst days (namely the great depression) we were STILL better off then Germany after WWI, and where we are now is nowhere near where we were during our worst days. I doubt we're heading for a Nazi America.

Now a civil war, that's a whole other can of worms.

Epic Godwin fail. Also, Nazis were in bed with the captains of industry. Occupy hates them. Nazism was blindly nationalistic and millitaristic. Occupy consists mostly of a bunch of generally peaceful (there's always that one punk kid that gives the police an excuse to disburse the whole camp) hipster folk. Millitarism and race hatred is about as far from occupy as you can get.

Yes, the current economic situation is getting worse not better as the government tells us (they're lying to the American sheeple), so I believe a 2nd Great Depression wil come and when it does people will turn to radical solutions em& either the American Communist Party gains control of America or the American Fascist Party gains control of America.

That is a very good possibility. And if it happens I'm going across seas to get away in time. That's all there is to it for me. If people weren't so skeptical about a lot of things ,real or not, it's always a possibility for a time when America will become a fascist country. We're not the best. We're not the greatest place on Earth. Just another country with just as much problems and dark history as the rest.

Let us instead pose a solitary question to confound our massed detractors: if American values and institutions are so corrupt and inferior, then explain, without reference to said values, why the U.S. is the most brawny, inventive, self-governing and prosperous republic in history. Tell me why your fair land has never known a dictator in 236 years of existence.

But you're making the absurd claim that somehow the United States of America, the oldest democracy in the world (since 1776, with a constitution that is not only older than modern day France's, Germany's, Italy's or Spain's constitution, it's older than all of them put together.) could somehow become like the Third Reich.

Comparing a western democratic government like the US to the Nazis, is a form of Holocaust denial. It is a way of saying that the Nazis were not so bad. That the things they did were like the things that modern liberal democracies do.
Comparing trivial things - like restrictions on young people from the police or teachers - to the Nazis is also a form of Holocaust denial. It makes one imagine that the person doing it has no idea what the Nazis were like. It says that killing millions of innocent women and children by shooting them in pits or putting them in ovens is "just like" telling some young person that he can't stay up late, or demonstrate on certain streets.

I've also got to ask if you think the 'Occupy' movement is actually a sign that America's going down the drain?

In the west, people often take to the streets in marches and demos. With their colourful banners and street theatre, these often get a large amount of media coverage. It is often implied that the government should actually listen to what these people have to say (instead of, say, completely ignoring them).
Governments however, being more sensible than journalists, do frequently completely ignore demos as if they had never happened. Governments realise that demos are simply another form of speech, no different to (apart from being ruder and more aggressive) and no more privileged than the usual collection of various points of view one can find in blogs, newsgroups or letters to the paper.

One fact governments understand instinctively: Demos do not represent public opinion:

Demos represent only the people who are against the government. - It is an obvious point, yet forgotten in media coverage of even miniature demos of a few hundred people. People who are happy enough with what the government is doing simply will not demonstrate. Even if the vast majority supports the government, all public demos will be against the government. The media will cover a few hundred people having a demo. It doesn't cover the vast number of people who didn't demo.
Even huge demos may not represent public opinion. Votes represent public opinion. Demos don't.

Demos represent only the people who have time to go on a demo. - Demos are dominated by young, unmarried people like students. People who have tons of time and energy and are mobile.
People who have serious jobs, mortgages, babies and children to care for, perhaps elderly parents to care for, and so on - not to mention having tired, middle-aged bodies exhausted by their responsibilities - will not be found on demos, or travelling round the country living in tents and engaging in "direct action". They have opinions just as strong as the carefree, childless students, but they will not express them at demos. They express them at the ballot box. Governments know this, and that is why they do not take demos seriously.

"the oldest democracy in the world"

Switzerland was an absolute monarchy back then?

In any case, Hitler didnīt saw the joos as Germans or even people at all.
Can the supporters of Roe vs Wade say the same?
Sure a lot of them sees the working class as scum that breeds too much to be properly controled but nope, not at all.
They even pretend it is for the aborted childrenīs own good, so they feel good about it but yet, they want to bill uncle sam for it.
When Hitler sought a future for the German people, they have only their own butts to save from duty, responsability and thoughtfullness.
So yeah, that is right, the comparaison is pretty damn inaccurate.

No Swtizerland was not an absolute monarhy back then. Instead it was a dictatorship when Napoleon coontrolled it and whereas Switzerland has only become a democracy after 1812, the U.S. was a democracy since 1776, albeit a flawed one at that. But I do agree that it is one of the oldest and best in the world.
As for the rest, I'm really unsure whether you're saying you agree, or disagree, not that I care.
And as for the Occupy protests, do you think a few people protesting about social inequality is a sign that a nation of 313 million people will go 'down the drain'. Do you have a problem with be believing it does not?
Demos don't represent public opinion. Votes do, and pretty much no one's been voting for a party that represents the Occupy movement in America

No, in 1776, Napoleon wasnīt yet in power, Louis had not even lost his head yet.

if it was a mere protest against inequality or the influence of wall street, it indeed wouldnīt be.
But it wasnīt just a mere protest, it was a left-driven protest, one which prooved time and time again prejudice against leftists right.

So? Despite claiming to stand for the 99%, they still only represent the minority of the population, as only few people in America actually vote for parties parallel with their policies.
I could easily say the same for the Tea party protests, being a right-driven protest, one which proved the prejudice against rightists true.

As for 'oldest democracy', we'll just have to agree, to disagree.
Sure Switzerland was only invaded after the French revolution, but then Napoleon turned it into a tyranny, and it's unbroken democratic chain only began after in 1812.

Well that would be about right, [link] they didnīt have a band singing fuck the usa, they didnīt have public drug use, they didnīt have muggery, they didnīt have to deal with rape cases, they didnīt have public defecation, they didnīt accumulate massive amounts of garbage, they didnīt live in filth, their protests didnīt have a rat infestation problem and general winter didnīt end their movement.

In the end, the USA was and still is a republic before being a democracy, not that it is a bad thing, on the contrary.
