    Lest We Forget: - The Lessons Of History

    History has a nasty habit of repeating itself.



    Let's hope we don't need telling twice....

    A very thought provoking video. There are some people who think that re-showing film/videos of the horrors of WWII could stir up a continued hatred for a particular nation. It is a fact that time can dull the memory, so I believe that film/videos should be re-shown like this in order to remind people not to travel this same path of horror.

    I blame US/UK foreign policy for most of our current problems. We have caused power vacuums in various Middle Eastern countries with 'regime change', which has allowed and encouraged groups such as ISIS to flourish, which, in turn, has displaced masses of people who are heading for 'pastures new'; Europe, in most cases. This, in turn, is providing much fuel for the fire to the far-right groups here in Europe.

    Combine this with financial hardship, and a lack of work; classic 'domino effect'.

    Greece is a prime example, though there are many other EU nations with a growing fascist threat!

    This looks so like how the Nazis started up under Hitler in Germany before WWII. What a frightening thought ! With ISIS on the one hand and Neo Nazis growing rapidly on the other and not missing out al qaeda either. Where will it all end ?

    Seems that the Greek "Golden Dawn" (Neo Nazis) are racist and want to rid Greece of ALL immigrants, so perhaps there's our answer ............ cause ISIS to raid Greece. I think that would be very interesting !

    Re: Lest We Forget: - The Lessons Of History

    It is indeed alarming. I blame 90% of this scenario on inept, short-sighted, greedy, grasping, naive, arrogant, hypocritical politicians and bankers, aided and abetted by industrialists with vested interests. These idiots will be the death of us at this rate. They don't care about that, though. They can always disappear somewhere nice with their ill-gotten gains/fat pension pots, leaving us 'lesser mortals' to 'foot the bill'.

    The perfect embodiment of the 'screw you Jack, I'm OK' attitude. And we just let it happen....Our forefathers will be turning in their graves!! Time to hold these 'elite' fatcats to account, IMO.

    I have lurked quietly on Stormfront for some time now, you might like to also Smaug, it is both worrying and enlightening, some of their arguments are well thought out and verging on reasonable if taken in isolation. The majority following behind are thick as excreta with hairy palms and calloused knuckles from dragging on the ground
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Stormfront? Are they right or left wing? I'll go look-see....

    As far right as you can get, and some more.

    Definitely 'not my cup of tea', Bruv! I can see why folk are turning to such far-right groups, though, as they feel disenfranchised by serial governments of whatever political leaning. The trouble is that governments ignore people, Bruv, and they can no longer afford to do so if they want to keep the fascists out of power. When enough people get behind an idea, the government either listens to the people, or is trampled underfoot in one way or another.

    If people can't FIND a way, they'll MAKE a way!
