Mein Kampf And The Democratic Primaries

Riding a hunch about similarities between certain worldviews, I dove back into Mein Kampf again.

God, what a horrible book. It's an extended rant by a guy who can't write, can't formulate a complex argument, had no idea what his opponents thought and was historically illiterate. He was also obsessed with race and wanted an all-powerful government.

In other words, Adolf Hitler belongs on the stage in the upcoming Democratic debates.

Differences arise when you get to the purpose of the whole thing. Uncle Adolf had grand visions and demanded sacrifices from the people to achieve them. It's all strength and army and battle and discipline all the time. The Democrats want to maximize the time you spend high on weed, downloading porn. Hitler demanded you join the army and die for the Fatherland. Kamala Harris demands someone else hand you goodies while you lay on the couch, wearing an rainbow flag shirt, watching Ellen DeGeneres. They both talk with their eyes bugged out and arms waving around, so there's that.

In the end, you wonder how anyone with sense ever believed a word of what they said.

And then you remember your Catholic Catechism and realize we are all imperfect, sinful people.

Is this deep blue Los Angeles, circa 2019 or deep Nazi Berlin, circa 1945?

I guess, when all's said and done, it hardly matters which path you take to get there.

Fundamentally remaking the country, change you can believe in and all that.
