NAZI Social Media: How they made Germany great again

"How they made Germany great again: The Nazi social media campaign of 1932"

Decades before Facebook, Hitler and Goebbels pioneered the use of Big Data and “social media” to subvert democracy

Non-sensical article; focusing on trivial matters (such as media propaganda) and trivializing the core matters (such as the economic impoverishment & corruption of the respective nations) . The difference between Hitler & Trump is:

1. Trump is not a fascist. Describing Trump is a 'fascist' distorts the true meaning of the word 'fascism'. Fascism actually drains the swamp where as Trump is the swamp, providing himself & his caste tax cuts & other privileges at the expense of of the nation.

2. Hitler did make Germany great again (and unfortunately, so great, they got carried away with imperialism & war rather than stick to their Germany focused National Socialism).

I think this sober unbiased academic video will help people understand history (rather than sensationalist liberal media).



This is also a good video however I cannot comment on its accuracy or lack of bias. Given it has been reported as "offensive" (for no obvious reason), it must be informative.

The suttas say:
And what is the bliss of debtlessness? There is the case where the son of a good family owes no debt, great or small, to anyone at all. When he thinks, 'I owe no debt, great or small, to anyone at all,' he experiences bliss, he experiences joy. This is called the bliss of debtlessness.

Anana Sutta: Debtless
In the videos I posted, the fascist employer-employer relations where actually similar to below:
In five ways should an employer minister to his employees as the Nadir:

(i) by assigning them work according to their ability,
(ii) by supplying them with [sufficient] food and with wages,
(iii) by tending them in sickness,
(iv) by sharing with them any special profits,
(v) by granting them leave at times.

The employees thus ministered to as the Nadir by their employer show their compassion to him in five ways:

(i) they rise before him,
(ii) they go to sleep after him,
(iii) they take only what is given,
(iv) they perform their duties well,
(v) they uphold his good name and fame.
