I've been rereading Inside the Third Reich, Albert Speer is an interesting historical persona. Twenty-eight years old an unemployed architect became a henchman of one of the world's most evil regimes. He wrote of his conversion into the cult of personality. He had nothing against Jews, he had been hired as an architect and given money and prestige, then given more money and more prestige when one day the question came, "would you like to join the Party?"

He was given the honorary rank as a colonel and began to wear the gaudy resplendent uniforms. Why not? He had to fit in, and all the other Nazis were wearing their gaudy uniforms. Through the serendipity oh so common in authoritarian regimes the armament ministers plane blew up shortly after takeoff. Speer was appointed as replacement armaments minister. He was in the inner circle now, a big-time big shot. Dining with the Fuhrer, Speer described his magnetism. How he and others were drawn in by it and once in orbit close could not escape it.

It is the classic description of a cult, once away from headquarters one could think rationally but once back in orbit could not act rationally. Speer fought against the mass deportation of foreign workers not because he was a great or humane guy. But if you rounded up ten thousand workers indiscriminately from France or Czechoslovakia their factory jobs at home would go unmanned. Ruthless German efficiency ruled, he was inside the bottle of his own department. But Speer was warned by associates not to visit any concentration camps and he took that advice. The truth you only suspect is easier to live with than the truth proved true.

As the war turned badly for Germany, Speer described the Fuhrers many incompetency's. The new jet plane designed as a fighter was to be built as a bomber limiting its range and without a bomb sight, its effectiveness. German cities were being pulverized day and night by Allied bombing and all Speer could say was, "Yes, mien Fuhrer." An authoritarian cult where one must bow to the will of the leader no matter how corrupt or insane. Speer's worries and concerns multiplied when he saw the condition of the forced laborers building the V-2 rockets. Speer intervened but again not because he was a great or humane guy. He intervened because sick and dying workers couldn't build as many rockets.

He was fully immersed in this murderous cult of madness because he was defending his country and his Fuhrer. As the war came to its conclusion Speer met a rural German farm family who recognized him. There was one month left in the war. The Allies had crossed the Rhine as the Russians were closing in on Berlin. The family greeted him warmly and assured him the Fuhrer still had some surprises up his sleeve. A classic case, where reality can be ignored inside the cult. The leader is infallible, the leader is invincible. The leader is all powerful the leader is the source of all truth.

Speer found himself in Spandau prison, he was one of the few Nazi war criminals who accepted responsibility for his crimes. He found himself in Spandau as one who had been asleep and suddenly awoke. He recoiled in horror at the monstrosity of his own crimes and wrote to his wife, "What matters most to me is that I manage to tell the truth about the end. That is what the German people must be told. The best way I can help my people is to speak the truth about the whole madness. There are no benefits for me in this course, nor do I want any benefits."

History does not repeat itself, history is a river of time running in parallel tributaries. This may be different from that or that different from this. The warriors may use swords or airplanes, but the behavior of the humans involved is always the same, be it Speer or Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The cultish behavior is the same. The end is always the same, the Fuhrer wanted to leave Germany as scorched earth wanting everything destroyed, bridges, power stations, telephone exchanges. Because if the Fuhrer was going to die, he didn't want Germany to survive. His madness and narcissism said without him Germany was unworthy to exist. How is this different from a chief executive who tries to limit aid to Puerto Rico? They aren't submissive enough they did not genuflect to his holiness.

"Hitler's dictatorship was the first dictatorship of an industrial state in this age of modern technology, a dictatorship which employed to perfection the instruments of technology to dominate its own people, By means of such instruments of technology as the radio and the public-address systems, eighty million people could be made subject to the will of one individual. Telephone, teletype and radio made it possible to transmit the commands of the highest levels directly to the lowest organs where because of their high authority they were executed uncritically. Thus, many offices and squads received their evil commands in this direct manner. The instruments of technology made it possible to maintain a close watch over all citizens and to keep criminal operations shrouded in a high degree of secrecy - Albert Speer

The truth of the Mueller investigation is garlanded by the protestations and claims of which hunt. An Attorney General / Court Jester capable of reading a thousand-page legal document in forty-eight hours and to reduce a two-year investigation down to four broken sentences. A Reichstag willing to kneel and subvert their own powers to the Fuhrer. Even as they know the Fuhrer is wrong, they know leader is infallible, the leader is invincible. The leader is all powerful, the leader is the source of all truth.

The Constitutional Crisis is upon us and will not end well. Concentration camps and the Fuhrer threatening his enemies while reallocating funds to his personal whims. Threatening the press, threatening the people and threatening the country with violence if anyone dares threaten to threaten him. This is not a Presidency, this is a Fascist coup in a failure of Democracy.

Yes, History DOES indeed "repeat itself"!! - the #NurembergCrimes have "carried over", in "full force and effect", to the 21st Century. That was W Bush who preemptively attacked, invaded, and occupied Iraq - #TheCrimeOfAggression ("Fraudulent Justification" Article II Bush Articles of Impeachment are "on file" just like at Nuremberg - #evidence "on file" and presented to War Crimes Tribunal) #CrimesAgainstPeace #WarCrimes.

Food for thought, David, click here

You won't find it with Google, Ecosia, and I imagine most search engines. Wonder why? I recommend the comments as much as the link, as they speak tomes about the responders.

,,, the sacred cow. Germans were fanatic about record keeping. Their own records put the death toll in the hundreds of thousands, but not millions. Most died of typhus, starvation, overwork, absence of medical care. bad enough on its face to negate the necessity for exaggeration. Allied bombing cut supplies. Prisoners were clearly low on the totem pole when it came to handing out food and medicine.

Reply to Daniel Geery:   New Content

Yes, I remember that one. I don't appear to have weighed in then.

I regard Holocaust denial more as flat earth than hate speech. But I agree using the Holocaust as a cudgel by Zionists [sorry PC filter I'm sticking with it] to justify "never again" policies of Israel is detestable and produces predictable backlash.

I'm much more amenable to skimming a long article than watching or scanning a long video. That being said, "Inside the Third Reich" has been on my book shelf for a long time, unfinished.

Quick response: Irving is NOT a "denier," by any stretch of the imagination. Nor am I. Hence step one: Get facts straight. Por favor.

As I said, I'm not inclined to sit through a whole 2 hour video to get all the facts straight. Something seems to have provoked a strong emotional reaction, though, which I'm also not inclined toward, especially before getting all the facts. So I'll just leave it at that.

Maxwell, I watched the entire video when Daniel posted his article. I remember that about the first 1:16 can be skipped over. During the first 1:16 I remember getting a little impatient but I did want to watch the entire video and I am very glad I did. Start watching at 1:16. It might not be exactly 1:16, but close.

In the comments on that article I told Rob Kall, David Irving cannot be summarily dismissed. He replied that he had no problem summarily dismissing Irving.

Rob said he only watched some of the video and I responded:

"I think you would have a different opinion of Irving if you had listened only to what he said about the killings, Auschwitz, holocaust, other historians, the amount of time and effort he put into getting the history as correct as possible, etc..

I know you must be busy as hell but if you do have a chance sometime, watch and listen again starting at 1hr 16min. I think you will understand why some of us are responding with some belief in what Irving says."

Interesting how, for two plus years, people got angry with you if you didn't believe in Russia's hold on Trump. But if AIPAC comes up as having too much influence, they go into total denial. Impossible! So the country, Russia, which has been dumped on for 100 years is accused of having influence. And Israel, which gets billions in aid, and who gets special treatment does not. And anyone who questions Israel's influence is attacked. Looks like cult mentality, where reality is turned on its head.

Since we have been waging war and destruction non-stop against other nations, Wallace's quote describes every president elected in my lifetime. I used to think some were better than others, but I now view the differences as determinants of historial circumstance, not moral integrity.

You're right. You have to overlook much of the first 18 months, but at least he came to the correct conclusions and was ready to act on them. Henry Wallace would have made a decent president, as well.

Great piece David -- perfect analogy.

I read "Inside the Third Reich" forty something years ago. I bought it at a convenience store next to a bus station in Galveston as I was waiting to depart. They had a rack of fantastically out of place books. The owner must of been a thoughtful individual, or possibly these were books left in the buses.

Reading it at the time the part about Speer being cynically concerned about the V2 workers got to me also because he seemed such a levelheaded, sincere figure. There are so many parallels with Trump's toadies. The book came back to me later on studying architecture -- it was very disturbing how he was seduced by the scale and scope and magnificence of his charge. Power is turning many into fools just as it did Speer. Lindsey Graham immediately comes to mind.

Trump and Hitler may have some things in common, their manipulation and desire to control the media, their narcissism, their love of hierarchy and elitism and racist attitudes, but I feel like Hitler was an ideologue. Hitler had a vision. It was twisted vision, but he was driven by his purpose as insane as it was. Trump is an amoral opportunist. He has no consistent ideology. And in watching his interviews over the years I see evidence of serious mental decline. He was always a corrupt, lazy coward but his outbursts, inability to speak coherently and above grade school level has clearly gotten worse in recent years.

Hitler/Reichstag Fire - W Bush/911 Demolitions. "Enabling Act" for Hitler/Patriot Act , AUMF 2001, AUMF 2003, for W Bush, remain "in full force and effect" for Obama, Trump, etc.

Congress has not dismantled their #ImperialPresidency for the American people, allowing our President, one person, to decide "who is a threat" and "what to do about it".
