This week PBS ran The Man Behind Hitler . It's about the life of Joseph Goebbels who became the Minister of Propaganda. The film is facinating.

Like every political discussion, this one finally comes to the point where one can't avoid the conclusion that both Republicans and Democrats are dicks, and people should stop voting for either of them.

Re: Do you think that the folks that followed Hitler were truly unique human beings?

Why not extend this topic to religion too. *After all more wars have been fought for "religious" reasons than any other. *The current state of the world is heavily dominated by religious beliefs and cultures that have very strong religious overtones confused with mixed in with national laws.

What about leaders like David Koresh, Jim Jones and People's Temple Christian Church crowd, the Hale Bopp Heaven's Gate crowd, and now the David Jeffs Morman sect. to name just a few. *These leaders had (have) such a hold on their followers than many gave up their wealth, their wives and their kids to these guys. *Many gave up their lives willingly. *What makes a person willing to do these things?

The petty acts of our current political parties are nothing compared to the influence and power most religions have on their members. *Look at the current "noise" about the DaVanci Code. *There are signs at most churches here that denounce the movie in very strong terms. *Sermons are based on swaying the masses to ingore the "lies" and remember that the "truth" is that which you are told at church. *After all, only religion (choose any one you wish) will give you eternal life after you are dead or 7 virgins or your own planet, etc. .........but if you don't believe then you must go to Hell and burn for eternity or be stuck in-between the world and Heaven, etc. *

No science to back this up either way so I guess you just have to "believe" what you want. *

Re: Do you think that the folks that followed Hitler were truly unique human beings?

Well, there is a fair amount of science regarding evolution, the age/history of the earth/universe, etc., as well as copious amounts of research regarding the history of, for instance, the Bible - who wrote what, who decided what to include/exclude, who did what to appease the masses for political expediency...

Good one!

I thought as long as the discussion was into politics it might as well sink into the abyss of religious discussion as well since nobody is going to be swayed to change their mind anyway.

Do we even need to? I already know that I'm right about everything and everyone else is wrong about everything.

Ever notice all serial killers and assasins are known by all three names?

John Wayne Gacy. John Wilkes Booth.

Except that Sirhan Sirhan guy, but he had the same name twice, which cancels everything out apparently.

Shoot, cuz I thought you were always right too, but since I'm part of "everyone else", and since you're always right and you say that everyone else is always wrong, that means i'm wrong about you being right.
