Everytime I watch 'Schindler's List' I think about today's Republican Party.

Godwin's law is dead. The insect logic used by the current GOP and libertarians of all stripes is the same as the insect logic used by the Nazi Party and the SS.

Psychopaths all. The only difference is that American soil is generally not fertile enough for such ideas to grow.

They need a few good economic shocks and perhaps an Event or two, nuclear or viral. That's all they need to bring out the Beast even here.

It's what's buried beneath all the other 'pro-American' ideas they love to display. It's where Republican logic is rooted, hatred and fear of the other, the love of cruelty, the enjoyment of misery.

Parsing terms and seeking compromise builds their road to Hell, the road their subconscious longs to walk.

Like I said, Godwin's law is dead. I see Amon Leopold Göth in Paul Ryan's eyes.

1. Mississippi Burning

I saw that movie last weekend. They have "interviews" with the locals. I was thinking at the time; "These same folks would be Trump voters today".

2. Watch "Memory of the Camps".

It is on PBS (app) under "Frontline".
