1. "Were"; the phrases are plurals.


Is the video any good?

How long is the video?

Is it a talking head?

Is there a transcript?

Is there a summary?

4. Nazi's or Politburo

control at the top of society rests with elites. Swiss bank accounts, stolen artwork, Black Sea dachau's, luxury vehicles, estates and maids.

Sometimes I think history focuses on the events, personalities, wars, and atrocities, but fails to tell us about the economic and financial flows and exploitation. Those elites were unaccountable to anyone and did what they liked, making it up as they went along. Anyone who runs anything, from the top, has opportunity for graft, theft by decree, and places to hide it in the world.

10. Right. Hitler was opposed to free speech and democracy.

He was authoritarian.

Authoritarianism can be associated with communism or fascism.

Democratic institutions and the rule of law are the keys to a free society.

We have democratic institutions to some extent, but our president is, unfortunately not elected by popular vote. That is just one example of a less than democratic institution in our country. We try to enforce the rule of law. But we still have to deal with police brutality and an oligarchy that from time to time avoids respecting the rule of law.

6. No, but saying so has become a right wing meme.

Socialists, anarchists, and communists made up the core of the European resistance. Many of their leaders died in Nazi concentration camps. The core principle of socialism is the idea that the workers should own the means of production— in other words, workers in an auto plant would own the auto plant and make managerial decisions through some kind of democratic process. Hitler didn’t distribute the means of production to the workers. It is routine for tyrants and autocrats to gain power by making populist promises. Hitler was the epitome of the right wing patriarchal authoritarian.

8. It's the opposite ... obviously ...

Hitler: Right Wing Extremist (fascist)
Mao & Stalin: Left Wing Extremists (communist)

Extremism in either direction sucks, really.
