Response to TahitiNut (Reply #68)

69. A friend introduced me to Louis Napoleon of the Second French Republic.

Our current predicament has many analogies. Corporatist like the Monarchist of his time played havoc with Banks, Louis like our modern Republicans seem hell bent on foreign intrigue for profit and the masses went along with the current scam of the day electing authoritarian Louis. Needless to say the banks did not do well, Louis picked one fight too many, the Monarchist lost their money, and religious bigotry backfired. Neo Con (Neo Liberals in Europe) indeed. Maybe Santorum is right history of Western Civilization needs to be taught which would hopefully provide future caution.


I am really glad to run into someone who understands the depth of our problems worse than run of the mill fascism.


I consistently used to fall close to Mandela and Gandhi on the lower left quadrant the last time I took the test moved slightly left. My MMPI has similar results.
