The onset of Nazis started in February of 33 when the emergency proclamation came from parliament and rules against Jewish children at school were in full effect by April. by that time. Most people do not realize how fast Germany became a Nazi country. by December parents with means were already evacuating children to England and the US for fear of what was to come.
Answer? maybe or just a harbinger of things to come.
I know off topic but an area of my heritage I am interested in greatly. Our family came to the US after WW1 because they believed thing were going to get very bad in Germany. They did.
Group think and mob mentality is a real thing. People really will embrace ideas if they perceive that they are popular. They will simply run along with the stampede.
There is not enough critical thinking in the world, and I don't see that problem being solved any time soon if ever.
Many people saw what was coming in Nazi Germany, but not enough to stop it. Europe is facing a similar problem with Islamic immigration/settlement in Europe. They unabashedly embrace Hitlerian ideas, and many Europeans are just too stuck in group think to see it.
I see another blood bath coming in Europe sometime in the future.
