Here in the US we already have *leaders* with more or less that very 
same...I'm going to call it a mal-ideology. So, we're not in such 
terribly different boats. Arguably, US is closer to a repeat of that 
right now. Heck, look at the new "Federal ID" and modern TSA - it's 
basically 1930's "traveling papers" all over again, and just like then, 
everyone's too pumped full of nationalism bull ("U..S..A!..U..S..A!..") 
and scapegoat-searching to notice.

Further still, that same Nazi, or ISIS, or whatever other evil 
fundamentalist mal-ideology ALL stems directly from getting all bent out 
of shape over what's benign and setting as sacred cows in defense 
against the benign. So congrats those pretending to be anti-Nazi while 
utilizing that to build the NEXT new fundamentalist regime.
