The Third Way

So far the discussion of the “Bush=Hitler” meme has stuck to the conventional positions – is Bush a new Hitler? Or is he not that bad? In the interests of keeping dissent uncrushed, I now present the third point of view, which so subverts the dominant cultural paradigm that it might not have even occurred to all you mindless corporate-interests-controlled drones out there.

So far, I’ve seen nothing to eliminate the possibility that Bush is on the same course as Hitler…. There isn’t much doubt in my mind – anyone who compares the history of Hitler’s rise to power and the progression of recent events in the US cannot avoid the parallels. It’s incontrovertible. Is Bush another Hitler? Maybe not, but with each incriminating event, the parallel grows -it certainly cannot be dismissed. There’s too much evidence already. Just as Hitler used American tactics to plan and execute his reign, it looks as if Karl Rove is reading Hitler’s playbook to plan world domination – and that is the stated intent of both. From the Reichstag fire to the landing at Nuremberg to the motto of “Gott Mit Uns” to the unprovoked invasion and occupation of Iraq to the insistence that peace was the ultimate goal, the line is unbroken and unwavering.

So similar to Hitler, but…

I’m afraid now, that what may still come to pass is a reign far more savage and barbaric than that of the Nazis. Already, appeasement has been fruitless – it only encourages the brazen to escalate their arrogance and braggadocio. Americans support Bush – by a generous majority – and mass media sings his praises while indicting his detractors – or silencing their opinions completely…. Is this the start of the 1000 year reign of this new collection of thugs? So it would seem.

I can only hope that in the coming year there will be some sign – some hint – that we are not becoming that which we abhor. The Theory of the Grotesque fares all too well these days. It may not be Nazi Germany – it might be a lot worse.

There you have it. The Hitler comparisons just don’t go far ENOUGH.
