Has anyone been watching "Dictator's Playbook" on PBS?

https://www.pbs.org/show/dictators-playbook/

I've caught bits and pieces but I hope to go back and watch the full episodes when I get a chance. I've watched most of the Mussolini and Franco episodes and saw a pretty good chunk of the Amin episode last night. It's almost too much to bear. Lot's of parallels.

2. Just finished watching Idi Amin moments ago.

I see parallels to what is going on here. Really.

4. Saw a lot of the Franco episode...

scary how all the ways that dictators work run in parallel lines.



I recently downloaded a YouTube copy of Rise & Fall of the 3d Reich based on the Shirer book. It is dated, but the strategies used by Hitler have some scary parallels, too.

Everybody should be taught this shit in school as very important historical lessons.
