That's a scary thought...

Some people consider abortion akin to the Holocaust.I'm not trying to start an argument. But other than that,no I doubt it.

Saying "No" is tantamount to being too prideful to see it when it does happen.

The internment of Japanese in the US, in my opinion, was a sad passage in human history, others have debated that here and elsewhere. It does not however stand comparision with the sophisticated, technical, calculated, extermination aparatus of the third Reich. The mass murder enacted through Europe was the product of a variety of particular conditions that I do not believe are likely to occur in my country. What I do believe is that had my country people of today been born in Germany, or Austria or Croatia or the Ukraine etc. they would have been just as likely to have swallowed the same lies and behaved in an equally deplorable manner.

Read "Love In The Ruins" by Walker Percy.And I retract my original statement.Yes I think it could.

It would be really hard. He took advantage of a really bad situation in Germany. It would take a lot to get the US into a situation that they were in when he came into power.

The reason I referenced the book is in it,a character talks about what people will do when they believe they are right,and are told so. The character discusses a study where a group of people are told by scientists to electrically shock test subjects. Even when the subjects were screaming in pain, the people did not stop. The point of the study was to see how far people will go once told by authority. The test subjects were actors.It's a great book.

ive seen the fotage of that electric shock experiment and it is a very good example of showing how far people will go when people in authority tell them to.

I think there are too many checks and balances in place in the U.S. for something like that to ever happen here.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 6/4/03 - 2:31:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, anything is possible
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 6/4/03 - 2:38:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
people didnt think it could happen in Germany, but it did. Also more recently in Yugoslavia, i know nothing happened there on the same scale as the third reich, but still, nobody thought that could happen.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 6/4/03 - 3:10:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think the US is pushing in that direction right now. I sincerly hope we stop before it's too late.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 6/4/03 - 3:30:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
That study that was done with the electrical shocks. I learned about that in my psychology class. BEcause of the results of that study, I do think it could happen in this country

My country was on the germans' side unfortunately,the hungarian soldiers executed many jews too and helped the germans to deportate them so i think it could happen.

We've been studying this at school and I think that it could happen in my country (England). Hitler got to power because of the appaling economic situation (caused by WW1) and people needed someone to blame for the lack of food and jobs so they blamed the Jews. When ever there's unemployment people will always say "oh, it's all those immigrants stealing our jobs." I think that people need to look at history a lot more to make sure that we don't make the same mistakes as before.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 11:24:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 11:31:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
No way! We are such a multiculturalistic (is that even a word?) country that I don't think our citizens would tolerate a person like Hitler!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 2:20:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never say never. The right time, the right circumstances, and enough people that decide to follow the wrong person (people). I'd say yes.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 2:40:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it can happen in any county where the people are desperate enough to accept such extremes.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 4:14:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Anything could happen. My friend told this one girl that he hates her more then Hitler hates the Jews.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 7:37:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah...the US gov't against the Muslims living in America and the world.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 7:38:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
I fear the anti-christ.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 8:05:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Simply put, it can happen in any country, given the right circumstances. Get rid of borders, and remake them at random, and ou have brand new countries that this could happen to. 100 years ago, if you asked anyone in the world(including Gemans), if this could happen, msot people would say no. You just need the right circumstances....
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 6/5/03 - 8:09:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Right now it couldn't happen, but the circumstances in Germany at the time were very extreme. No-one can say it will never happen again.
