How do you kill 11 million people?

Well it seems the theme of the day is Nazi Germany...

While looking for the Hitler Youth video I used in the last post, I stumbled upon this video by Hilmer Von Campe. He was a member of the Hitler Youth and fought for Germany in WWII. It's a long video and could probably be cut in half, but it's an important message about how our government today is closer to Nazism than the Founding Fathers and how 90% of Germans didn't believe in the Nazi ideology but fought for it anyway because they believed the lies they were told. He also says the same kind of ignorance and apathy exists in America today. His message is a warning.

Then 5 minutes ago I see this video at We The People

It's shorter and more poignant...but what blew me away is how eerily similar the messages are. Actually I guess they're more than similar, they're the same. Ever have something keep popping up from different places?? Makes you think you're supposed to pay attention. Well apparently this is what I'm supposed to pay attention to today. And it is a message I fully agree with.

How do you kill 11 million people? By subduing 80 million into inaction.
How many will be killed if 300 million are subdued in America?

"We must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most...and that is the indifference of good men!"
