Welcome National ID, torture as an interrogation technique, Social Slavery, compelled compliance, victimless crimes, licensing, and beyond all that, Adolfesk application of the ten pllanks.

Mike, Norwalk

I would have normally given this a thumbs down but, it was so accurate I had to give it 5 stars.

Joe, Rochester, MI

Yes, national ID (,, continued loss of liberty, etc. It's unAmerican.

Logan, Memphis, TN

I agree with Mike; Hitler, though considered a mad-man, was a genius in controlling the masses. So much so that his techinques are still being adopted in America.

And that is exactly what 'federalism' is all about. War is the typical means to that end.

Rohan, Adelaide

A purely awesome quote for a purely insane man, but then, isn't that the way it always is?

warren, olathe

Great quote. He understood the power of socialism better than Stalin. Socialism can be powerful as long as you have a committed inspired population. That situation will only last as long as an inspiring leader is in charge. After that its ugliness will come to the surface and inspiration will leave. Socialism only gives power to the state.

Truth. Socialistic...just more a greater meaning with government control of the means of production and distribution...People are property in collectivism. Its all slavery.

Moshe Yanovskiy, Jerusalem

State intervention into baby room "to protect" children from the parents and public schools serving "for socialization not education" - the best Hitler could imagine - his ideas still alive and here is the real author...
