The article expects the reader to have a modicum of historical knowledge... which obviously you, who bleats at the sheep (not recognizing himself to BE one), do not.
Hitler filled a gap that drew in the angry workers...
Germany's defeat in World War I was a massive wound to the pride of a very proud People.
The financial fallout from the war's outcome was devastating and left many skilled workers without a means to feed their families.
Anger was rampant.
Anger is a powerful energy when it's shared by millions of people, and Hitler knew how to speak to that anger and channel it.
The use of a scapegoat is a formidable application of that raw collective fuel.
Trump has explored using Muslims and Mexicans as his preferred scapegoat populations.
Hitler's brown shirts didn't start out with massive murders.
Trump's rallies are creating the beginning stages of tolerance for thugs beating on those groups targeted as "less than," and/or the reason for America's "not great now" problems.
Hitler was seen as a nobody initially.
I've mentioned this before. I recently did an astrological study on serial killers and the sign that showed up highest was GEMINI. That's the sign of Kissinger, Bush, sr. and Trump.
There is a Divine Order to the Zodiac's 12-sign evolution and it begins with Aries--the me first sign of self interest and self-defense. That's also the sign of war.
It moves next to Taurus, where the individual must plant himself or herself and ground their interests in order to support their material needs (like food and shelter).
Gemini comes next as the originator of language, the articulation channel of ideas, the deal maker.
Cancer, introducing the WATER element which is the source of FEELINGS (starting with empathy) comes next.
In other words, Gemini represents the state of being which is divorced from feelings of empathy because they are not yet within the experience of the individual.
Obviously, not all serial killers are Gemini (or Aries), nor are all Gemini natives prone to killing. But the missing empathy qualifies statistically as a factor.
Trump would not feel the pain his policies would cast upon others.
