Good article

At the risk of being political, I’m posting a link to an article that my friend Jeff sent me:

It talks about how the Nazis came into power in Germany, even though they never had a majority stake in the Reichstag and Hitler did not win the popular vote. There are some frightening similarities to the situation we find ourselves in now. Leaders using terrorism as an excuse to hold people indefinitely without charge and to allow the erosion of civil liberties. Even if you don’t agree with the parallels between the situation then and what we’re going through now, remember that those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it – this is good stuff to know.

I’ve been really apathetic about politics thus far in life. It took a leader as bad as Bush to get me off of my ass and to get involved. Hopefully a lot of like-minded people have been similarly spurred into action.
