of course they willWant to get everyone's thoughts on this serious question, after seeing the policies of Biden and his advisers. Do you feel Americans will comply with a "mandatory buyback" gun confiscation?
If so, why?
And if not, why not?
thats the plan, but is it workableThey would have to do it gradually.
First, make it prohibitively expensive.
Make it impossible for people who refuse to comply to work, travel, buy basic necessities, continue living in their homes.
Skin off all the easy sheep and the ones who have some resistance but can be prodded into compliance.
Then characterize those who remain non-compliant as crazy extremists who are dangerous to the community.
After they have it whittled down to a small fraction of the original total, they can go door-to-door without worry that there is any significant number in the community to group together and resist on anything but a one-to-one-hundred ratio of being outnumbered.
I absolutely agree with everything you said, except that none of that has anything to do with “Nazi”. At least not in historical aspect.People years ago in America thought their freedom of speech and freedom of religion would never be taken away. We see how that went. People being forced to wear masks, states issuing stay at home orders and curfews, New York requiring people to have covid tests and quarantining, and churches being shut down. Sounds like Nazi Germany. Requiring people to wear masks is about like requiring people to wear arm bands. Stay at home orders, curfews, and New York's required covid tests are like Nazis requiring papers to travel. And yet many Americans willingly comply.
as an avid student of that era in history, its kind of odd that at least in pre-war nazi germany the jack boot wasnt as prevalent in day to day if you weren't a member of certain targeted groups, as it was in Stalin's USSR. like say its 1938 and hans q public is in a honky tonk in Dresden said hitler was a bundle of sticks, most likely life would go on and he wouldnt hear anything about it. Now same time, but Yuri q public is at a honky tonk in Gorky and says that Stalin has that musstache so he can get the peanut butter off of a banana without leaving tooth marks, you better not loan his ass a ruble cuz he will be hangin with the NKVD within a week and wont be back. in the 30s USSR, the terror touched EVERYONE. modern authoritarians in the west, consciously or otherwise, have taken noteI absolutely agree with everything you said, except that none of that has anything to do with “Nazi”. At least not in historical aspect.
The Nazis did the same thing. You might want to research history again.I absolutely agree with everything you said, except that none of that has anything to do with “Nazi”. At least not in historical aspect.
First of all Nazi is almost the same as Communist. Nazi is an abbreviation for National SOCIALIST, which is an abbreviation for National SOCIALIST German Workers' Party. Communism is one step away from Socialism. It is a lie repeated by the left in America that Nazi and Communist are opposite ends of the political spectrum when in fact they are both extreme left. This lie is repeated because in Europe, Communists sat on the left and Nazis sat on the right in legislatures. And it is repeated by some because during WWII, Russia was ALLIES with America but not friends. While Germany was one of the enemies of America. Tyranny is tyranny not matter what name it is given: Nazi, Communist, Socialist, Sharia Law, King, or dictator.You missing the point, or maybe I am.
Nazis had done it to certain groups in Germany,... in US, government is doing it to all of us. This has nothing to do with Nazis, and nothing our government does today, has anything to do with that regime we call Nazis. Having a fully functional stock market exchange, and International Bankers running our economy is obvious proof of complete lack of anything Nazi in this country.
No offense, but wiki, isn’t the best place to start studying history of the world either, specially not such a complex subject.
So no, those specifics, that you have pointed out historically do not describe “Nazi”. We are dealing with something that is closer to NeoComunizm of some kind. What you call “left”, in US is mostly quazy communism, and has actually nothing to do with “left” in rest of the world.
As far as I understand, NSDAP (Nazi) was actually “left” , or Nacional Socialist Workers Party.
I’ll finish this by “agreeing to disagree” with you. Our Country is already divided enough.
Mostly false on the Nazi regime gun control.The gun control act of 1968 is supposedly a pretty much verbaitum copy of a Nazi law.
I think one major, if not THE major reason for the misconception of nazis and commies being on opposite ends of the political spectrum is that in the weimer republic the SA and the communist germans used to fight each other all the time.
One other thing that made a difference in how the two groups operated is that Germany(or the territory we now know as germany) had a history of being part of the west, pretty free.......Russia, not so much. You had hundreds of years of the czars(or tsars), a brief Kerensky democracy, then civil war, war communism, red terror and a very brief relaxation known as the NEP..... SO to those folks, tyranny and terror were the historical norm.
I dont know about in Germany proper, but the Nazis were very repressive towards the orthodox church in Occupied USSR, leaving Stalin the chance to lift restricions on it and thus gain support among the rural population who still remembered collectivization. If hitler would have re-instated the church, he would have won even more support in occupied territiories. as it was, he had a bit of local support, especially in Ukraine.
